A song with musical accompaniment for the Sabbath day.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing to Your name, O Most High.
To declare in the morning Your kindness and Your faith at night.
Upon a ten-stringed harp and upon a psaltery, with speech upon a harp.
For You have made me happy O Lord, with Your work; with the work of Your hands I shall exult.
How great are Your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep.
A boorish man does not know; neither does a fool understand this.
When the wicked flourish like grass, and all workers of violence blossom, only to be destroyed to eternity.
But You remain on high forever, O Lord.
For behold Your enemies, O Lord, for behold Your enemies will perish; all workers of violence will scatter.
But You have raised my horn like that of a wild ox; to soak me with fresh oil.
My eye has gazed upon those who stare at me [with envy]; when evildoers rise up against me, my ears hear [them].
The righteous one flourishes like the palm; as a cedar in Lebanon he grows.
Planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of our God they will flourish.
They will yet grow in old age; fat and fresh will they be.
To declare that the Lord is upright, my rock in Whom there is no injustice.
O God of vengeance, O Lord; O God show vengeance.
Exalt Yourself, O Judge of the earth, render to the haughty their recompense.
How long will the wicked, O Lord, how long will the wicked rejoice?
They spout forth, they speak falsely; all workers of violence boast.
Your people, O Lord, they crush, and Your inheritance they afflict.
They slay the widow and the stranger, and they murder the orphans.
They say, “Yah will not see, nor will the God of Jacob understand.”
Understand, [you] most boorish of the people, and [you] fools, when will you gain intelligence?
Will He Who implants the ear not hear or will He Who forms the eye not see?
Will He Who chastises nations not reprove? [He is] the One Who teaches man knowledge.
The Lord knows man’s thoughts that they are vanity.
Fortunate is the man whom You, Yah, chastise, and from Your Torah You teach him.
To grant him peace from days of evil, while a pit is dug for the wicked.
For the Lord will not forsake His people, nor will He desert His inheritance.
For until righteousness will judgment return, and after it all those upright in heart.
Who will rise up for me against evildoers; who will stand up for me against workers of violence?
Had not the Lord been my help, in an instant my soul would rest silent.
If I said, “My foot has slipped,” Your kindness, O Lord, supported me.
With my many thoughts within me, Your consolations cheered me.
Will the throne of evil join You, which forms iniquity for a statute?
They gather upon the soul of the righteous and condemn innocent blood.
But the Lord was my fortress, and my God the rock of my refuge.
And He returned upon them their violence, and for their evil, may He cut them off; may the Lord our God cut them off.
A song of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He causes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul; He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Even when I walk in the valley of darkness, I will fear no evil for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff-they comfort me.
You set a table before me in the presence of my adversaries; You anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.
May only goodness and kindness pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for length of days.
For the conductor, a song of David.
May the Lord answer you on a day of distress; may the name of the God of Jacob fortify you.
May He send your aid from His sanctuary, and may He support you from Zion.
May He remember all your meal offerings and may He accept your fat burnt offerings forever.
May He give you as your heart [desires], and may He fulfill all your counsel.
Let us sing praises for your salvation, and let us assemble in the name of our God; may the Lord fulfill all your requests.
Now I know that the Lord saved His anointed; He answered him from His holy heavens; with the mighty acts of salvation from His right hand.
These trust in chariots and these in horses, but we-we mention the name of the Lord our God.
They kneel and fall, but we rise and gain strength.
O Lord, save [us]; may the King answer us on the day we call.
Of David, a song. The land and the fullness thereof are the Lord’s; the world and those who dwell therein.
For He founded it upon seas and established it upon rivers.
Who will ascend upon the Lord’s mount and who will stand in His Holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not taken My name in vain and has not sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the Lord and charity from the God of his salvation.
This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your presence-Jacob, forever.
[You] gates, lift your heads and be uplifted, [you] everlasting portals, so that the King of Glory may enter.
Who is this King of Glory? The Lord, Who is strong and mighty, the Lord Who is a mighty warrior.
[You] gates, lift your heads and lift up, [you] everlasting portals, so that the King of Glory may enter.
Who is this King of Glory? The Lord of Hosts-He is the King of Glory forever.
A song for a thanksgiving offering. Shout to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with joy, come before Him with praise.
Know that the Lord is God; He made us and we are His, people and the flock of His pasture.
Come into His gates with thanksgiving, [into] His courtyards with praise; give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good; His kindness is forever, and until generation after generation is His faith.
