Psalm 56

Psalm 56 1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;    all day long an attacker oppresses me;2 my enemies trample on me all day long,    for many attack me proudly.3 When I am afraid,    I put my trust in you.4 In God, whose word I praise,    in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.    What can flesh do to me? 5 All day long they injure my cause;    all their thoughts are against me for evil.6 They stir up strife, they lurk;    they watch my steps,    as they have waited for my life.7 For their crime…

Psalm 8

Psalm 8  1O Lord, our Lord,    how majestic is your name in all the earth!You have set your glory above the heavens.2Out of the mouth of babies and infants,you have established strength because of your foes,    to still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,4 what is man that you are mindful of him,    and the son of man that you care for him? 5 Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings    and crowned…

Pslam 2

Psalm 2 1 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, 3  “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” 4  He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. 5  Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, 6  “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.” 7  I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. 8  Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9  You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” 10  Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. 11  Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

Psalm 32

Psalm 32 1 Blessed is the one    whose transgressions are forgiven,    whose sins are covered.2 Blessed is the one    whose sin the Lord does not count against them    and in whose spirit is no deceit. 3 When I kept silent,    my bones wasted away    through my groaning all day long.4 For day and night    your hand was heavy on me;my strength was sapped    as in the heat of summer. 5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you    and did not cover up my iniquity.I said, “I will confess    my transgressions to the Lord.”And you forgave    the guilt of my sin. 6 Therefore let…
