Psalm chapter 71

1
In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.
2
Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me.
3
Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
4
Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men.
5
For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.
6
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother's womb. I will ever praise you.
7
I have become like a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge.
8
My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long.
9
Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
10
For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together.
11
They say, "God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him."
12
Be not far from me, O God; come quickly, O my God, to help me.
13
May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace.
14
But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
15
My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not its measure.
16
I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone.
17
Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
18
Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.
19
Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God, you who have done great things. Who, O God, is like you?
20
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
21
You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
22
I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.
23
My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you-- I, whom you have redeemed.
24
My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.

Psalm chapter 72

1
Of Solomon. Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness.
2
He will judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice.
3
The mountains will bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.
4
He will defend the afflicted among the people and save the children of the needy; he will crush the oppressor.
5
He will endure as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations.
6
He will be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth.
7
In his days the righteous will flourish; prosperity will abound till the moon is no more.
8
He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.
9
The desert tribes will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust.
10
The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts.
11
All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him.
12
For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help.
13
He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death.
14
He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight.
15
Long may he live! May gold from Sheba be given him. May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long.
16
Let grain abound throughout the land; on the tops of the hills may it sway. Let its fruit flourish like Lebanon; let it thrive like the grass of the field.
17
May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.
18
Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.
19
Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen.
20
This concludes the prayers of David son of Jesse.

Psalm chapter 73

1
A psalm of Asaph. Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.
2
But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold.
3
For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4
They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.
5
They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.
6
Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.
7
From their callous hearts comes iniquity; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.
8
They scoff, and speak with malice; in their arrogance they threaten oppression.
9
Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth.
10
Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance.
11
They say, "How can God know? Does the Most High have knowledge?"
12
This is what the wicked are like-- always carefree, they increase in wealth.
13
Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure; in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.
14
All day long I have been plagued; I have been punished every morning.
15
If I had said, "I will speak thus," I would have betrayed your children.
16
When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me
17
till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.
18
Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin.
19
How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors!
20
As a dream when one awakes, so when you arise, O Lord, you will despise them as fantasies.
21
When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered,
22
I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you.
23
Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.
24
You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.
25
Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27
Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
28
But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.

Psalm chapter 74

1
A maskil of Asaph. Why have you rejected us forever, O God? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?
2
Remember the people you purchased of old, the tribe of your inheritance, whom you redeemed-- Mount Zion, where you dwelt.
3
Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins, all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary.
4
Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs.
5
They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees.
6
They smashed all the carved paneling with their axes and hatchets.
7
They burned your sanctuary to the ground; they defiled the dwelling place of your Name.
8
They said in their hearts, "We will crush them completely!" They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land.
9
We are given no miraculous signs; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be.
10
How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever?
11
Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them!
12
But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth.
13
It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters.
14
It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert.
15
It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever flowing rivers.
16
The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon.
17
It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.
18
Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name.
19
Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever.
20
Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land.
21
Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name.
22
Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long.
23
Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.

Psalm chapter 75

1
For the director of music. [To the tune of] "Do Not Destroy." A psalm of Asaph. A song. We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds.
2
You say, "I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly.
3
When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. Selah
4
To the arrogant I say, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not lift up your horns.
5
Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.'"
6
No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man.
7
But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
8
In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.
9
As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10
I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
