Psalm 122

I rejoiced – was glad, couldn’t wait, looked forward to going to God’s house.  (In those days it’s possible that going to the temple at Jerusalem could only be done once a year at the most.)

The tribes of Israel go to praise God.

Pray for the peace of God’s city.

May those who love God’s house be secure.

For the sake of God’s house, seek for the prosperity of the city.

Psalm 119 – Taw and Thaw

(Taw and Thaw are the twenty-third and fourth letters of the Hebrew alphabet)

May my cry come before You O Lord – hear and pay attention; give me understanding according to Your word.
May my supplication come before You; deliver me according to Your word.
May my lips overflow with praise, for You teach me Your word.
May my tongue sing of Your word, for Your word is righteous.
May Your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen Your word.
I long for Your salvation O Lord, and Your word is my delight.
Let me live that I may praise You and may Your word sustain me.
I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek Your servant, for I have not forgotten Your word.

Psalm 119 – Nun

(Nun is the fourteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet)

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path – Your word shows me where to walk in this world.
I have made a promise and re-affirmed it, that I will follow the way Your word lights up.
I have suffered much; preserve my life O Lord according to Your word.
Accept O Lord the willing praise of my mouth and teach me Your word.
Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget Your word.
The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from Your word.
Your word is my heritage forever, Your word is the joy of my heart.
My heart is set on keeping Your word to the very end.

Psalm 116

I love the Lord because He heard my voice, my prayers, my cry for mercy. Because He inclines His ear to me, pays attention to me, I will call on Him as long as I live.

Death entangled me, its anguish came upon me, I was overcome by trouble and sorrow. I called on the name of the Lord to save me.

The Lord is gracious, righteous, full of compassion. He protects the simple-hearted and saved me when I was in great need.

My soul can rest at ease for the Lord has been good to me.

You have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before You in the land of the living.

I believed even though I was greatly afflicted and convinced that all men are liars. How can I repay the Lord for all His goodness to me? I will accept salvation and call on God. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in public.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. I am your servant and You have freed me from my chains.

I will sacrifice a thank offering and call on the name of the Lord. I will fulfill my vows in public.

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 115

Not to us, O Lord, but to Your name be the glory and praise.

Others may ask where my God is, but I know. My God is in heaven, doing what pleases Him.

Those who trust in idols will end up like them:
They will have mouths, but not be able to speak.
ears, but not be able to hear.
noses, but not be able to smell.
hands, but won’t be able to feel.
feet, but won’t be able to walk.

Trust in the Lord, your help and shield.
The Lord remembers us and will bless us.

Heaven belongs to God, the earth to man.
The dead don’t praise God – we do.
Praise Him now and forever more.

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord. Servants of the Lord praise Him.
Praise now and forevermore.
Praise from sunrise to sunset.

Exalt Him over all the nations.
His glory (perfection) is above the nations.
No one is like God. God sits enthroned on high and stoops down to look at heaven and earth.

He raises poor from the dust of poverty.
He lifts the needy from the ash heap of want.
The poor and needy sit with the princes.
The barren woman becomes a happy mother.

Praise the Lord.
