Psalm chapter 26

1
[Davidic.] Vindicate me, LORD, because I have lived with integrity and have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2
Test me, LORD, and try me; examine my heart and mind.
3
For Your faithful love is before my eyes, and I live by Your truth.
4
I do not sit with the worthless or associate with hypocrites.
5
I hate a crowd of evildoers, and I do not sit with the wicked.
6
I wash my hands in innocence and go around Your altar, LORD,
7
raising my voice in thanksgiving and telling about Your wonderful works.
8
LORD, I love the house where You dwell, the place where Your glory resides.
9
Do not destroy me along with sinners, or my life along with men of bloodshed
10
in whose hands are evil schemes, and whose right hands are filled with bribes.
11
But I live with integrity; redeem me and be gracious to me.
12
My foot stands on level ground; I will praise the LORD in the assemblies.

Psalm chapter 27

1
[Davidic.] The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom should I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom should I be afraid?
2
When evildoers came against me to devour my flesh, my foes and my enemies stumbled and fell.
3
Though an army deploy against me, my heart is not afraid; though war break out against me, still I am confident.
4
I have asked one thing from the LORD; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the LORD and seeking [Him] in His temple.
5
For He will conceal me in His shelter in the day of adversity; He will hide me under the cover of His tent; He will set me high on a rock.
6
Then my head will be high above my enemies around me; I will offer sacrifices in His tent with shouts of joy. I will sing and make music to the LORD.
7
LORD, hear my voice when I call; be gracious to me and answer me.
8
In Your behalf my heart says, "Seek My face." LORD, I will seek Your face.
9
Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn Your servant away in anger. You have been my help; do not leave me or abandon me, God of my salvation.
10
Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD cares for me.
11
Because of my adversaries, show me Your way, LORD, and lead me on a level path.
12
Do not give me over to the will of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing violence.
13
I am certain that I will see the LORD's goodness in the land of the living.
14
Wait for the LORD; be courageous and let your heart be strong. Wait for the LORD.

Psalm chapter 28

1
[Davidic.] LORD, I call to You; my rock, do not be deaf to me. If You remain silent to me, I will be like those going down to the Pit.
2
Listen to the sound of my pleading when I cry to You for help, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.
3
Do not drag me away with the wicked, with the evildoers, who speak in friendly ways with their neighbors, while malice is in their hearts.
4
Repay them according to what they have done-- according to the evil of their deeds. Repay them according to the work of their hands; give them back what they deserve.
5
Because they do not consider what the LORD has done or the work of His hands, He will tear them down and not rebuild them.
6
May the LORD be praised, for He has heard the sound of my pleading.
7
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. Therefore my heart rejoices, and I praise Him with my song.
8
The LORD is the strength of His people; He is a stronghold of salvation for His anointed.
9
Save Your people, bless Your possession, shepherd them, and carry them forever.

Psalm chapter 29

1
[A Davidic psalm.] Give the Lord-- you heavenly beings-- give the LORD glory and strength.
2
Give the LORD the glory due His name; worship the LORD in the splendor of [His] holiness.
3
The voice of the LORD is above the waters. The God of glory thunders-- the LORD, above vast waters,
4
the voice of the LORD in power, the voice of the LORD in splendor.
5
The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
6
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, and Sirion, like a young wild ox.
7
The voice of the LORD flashes flames of fire.
8
The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
9
The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth and strips the woodlands bare. In His temple all cry, "Glory!"
10
The LORD sat enthroned at the flood; the LORD sits enthroned, King forever.
11
The LORD gives His people strength; the LORD blesses His people with peace.

Psalm chapter 30

1
[A psalm; a dedication song for the house. Davidic.] I will exalt You, LORD, because You have lifted me up and have not allowed my enemies to triumph over me.
2
LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
3
LORD, You brought me up from Sheol; You spared me from among those going down to the Pit.
4
Sing to the LORD, you His faithful ones, and praise His holy name.
5
For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor, a lifetime. Weeping may spend the night, but there is joy in the morning.
6
When I was secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
7
LORD, when You showed Your favor, You made me stand like a strong mountain; when You hid Your face, I was terrified.
8
LORD, I called to You; I sought favor from my Lord:
9
"What gain is there in my death, in my descending to the Pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it proclaim Your truth?
10
LORD, listen and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper."
11
You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
12
so that I can sing to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise You forever.
