Psalms - Chapters 31-60

31:1: <> In you, Yahweh, I take refuge. Let me never be disappointed: Deliver me in your righteousness.
31:2: Bow down your ear to me. Deliver me speedily. Be to me a strong rock, A house of defense to save me.
31:3: For you are my rock and my fortress, Therefore for your name's sake lead me and guide me.
31:4: Pluck me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me, For you are my stronghold.
31:5: Into your hand I commend my spirit. You redeem me, Yahweh, God of truth.
31:6: I hate those who regard lying vanities, But I trust in Yahweh.
31:7: I will be glad and rejoice in your loving kindness, For you have seen my affliction. You have known my soul in adversities.
31:8: You have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy. You have set my feet in a large place.
31:9: Have mercy on me, Yahweh, for I am in distress. My eye, my soul, and my body waste away with grief.
31:10: For my life is spent with sorrow, My years with sighing. My strength fails because of my iniquity. My bones are wasted away.
31:11: Because of all my adversaries I have become utterly contemptible to my neighbors, A fear to my acquaintances. Those who saw me on the street fled from me.
31:12: I am forgotten from their hearts like a dead man. I am like broken pottery.
31:13: For I have heard the slander of many, terror on every side, While they conspire together against me, They plot to take away my life.
31:14: But I trust in you, Yahweh. I said, "You are my God."
31:15: My times are in your hand. Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.
31:16: Make your face to shine on your servant. Save me in your loving kindness.
31:17: Let me not be disappointed, Yahweh, for I have called on you. Let the wicked be disappointed. Let them be silent in Sheol.
31:18: Let the lying lips be mute, Which speak against the righteous insolently, with pride and contempt.
31:19: Oh how great is your goodness, Which you have laid up for those who fear you, Which you have worked for those who take refuge in you, Before the sons of men!
31:20: In the shelter of your presence you will hide them from the plotting of man. You will keep them secretly in a dwelling away from the strife of tongues.
31:21: Praise be to Yahweh, For he has shown me his marvelous loving kindness in a strong city.
31:22: As for me, I said in my haste, "I am cut off from before your eyes." Nevertheless you heard the voice of my petitions when I cried to you.
31:23: Oh love Yahweh, all you his saints! Yahweh preserves the faithful, And pays back him who deals proudly in full.
31:24: Be strong, and let your heart take courage, All you who hope in Yahweh.

32:1: <> Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
32:2: Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh doesn't impute iniquity, In whose spirit there is no deceit.
32:3: When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
32:4: For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah.
32:5: I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, And you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
32:6: For this, let everyone who is godly pray to you in a time when you may be found. Surely when the great waters overflow, they shall not reach to him.
32:7: You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
32:8: I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go. I will counsel you with my eye on you.
32:9: Don't be like the horse, or like the mule, which have no understanding, Whose are controlled by bit and bridle, or else they will not come near to you.
32:10: Many sorrows shall be to the wicked, But he who trusts in Yahweh, loving kindness shall surround him.
32:11: Be glad in Yahweh, and rejoice, you righteous! Shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart!

33:1: Rejoice in Yahweh, you righteous! Praise is fitting for the upright.
33:2: Give thanks to Yahweh with the lyre. Sing praises to him with the harp of ten strings.
33:3: Sing to him a new song. Play skillfully with a shout of joy!
33:4: For the word of Yahweh is right. All his work is done in faithfulness.
33:5: He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is full of the loving kindness of Yahweh.
33:6: By Yahweh's word the heavens were made; All their host by the breath of his mouth.
33:7: He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap. He lays up the deeps in storehouses.
33:8: Let all the earth fear Yahweh. Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
33:9: For he spoke, and it was done. He commanded, and it stood firm.
33:10: Yahweh brings the counsel of the nations to nothing. He makes the thoughts of the peoples to be of no effect.
33:11: The counsel of Yahweh stands fast forever, The thoughts of his heart to all generations.
33:12: Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh, The people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance.
33:13: Yahweh looks from heaven. He sees all the sons of men.
33:14: From the place of his habitation he looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth,
33:15: He who fashions all of their hearts; And he considers all of their works.
33:16: There is no king saved by the multitude of a host. A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
33:17: A horse is a vain thing for safety, Neither does he deliver any by his great power.
33:18: Behold, Yahweh's eye is on those who fear him, On those who hope in his loving kindness;
33:19: To deliver their soul from death, To keep them alive in famine.
33:20: Our soul has waited for Yahweh. He is our help and our shield.
33:21: For our heart rejoices in him, Because we have trusted in his holy name.
33:22: Let your loving kindness be on us, Yahweh, Since we have hoped in you.

34:1: <> I will bless Yahweh at all times. His praise will always be in my mouth.
34:2: My soul shall boast in Yahweh. The humble shall hear of it, and be glad.
34:3: Oh magnify Yahweh with me. Let us exalt his name together.
34:4: I sought Yahweh, and he answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.
34:5: They looked to him, and were radiant. Their faces shall never be covered with shame.
34:6: This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles.
34:7: The angel of Yahweh encamps round about those who fear him, And delivers them.
34:8: Oh taste and see that Yahweh is good. Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
34:9: Oh fear Yahweh, you his saints, For there is no lack with those who fear him.
34:10: The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger, But those who seek Yahweh shall not lack any good thing.
34:11: Come, you children, listen to me. I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.
34:12: Who is someone who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good?
34:13: Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking lies.
34:14: Depart from evil, and do good. Seek peace, and pursue it.
34:15: Yahweh's eyes are toward the righteous. His ears listen to their cry.
34:16: Yahweh's face is against those who do evil, To cut off the memory of them from the earth.

34:18: Yahweh is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves those who have a crushed spirit.
34:19: Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But Yahweh delivers him out of them all.
34:20: He protects all of his bones. Not one of them is broken.
34:21: Evil shall kill the wicked. Those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.
34:22: Yahweh redeems the soul of his servants. None of those who take refuge in him shall be condemned.

35:1: <> Contend, Yahweh, with those who contend with me. Fight against those who fight against me.
35:2: Take hold of shield and buckler, And stand up for my help.
35:3: Brandish the spear and block those who pursue me. Tell my soul, "I am your salvation."
35:4: Let those who seek after my soul be disappointed and brought to dishonor. Let those who plot my ruin be turned back and confounded.
35:5: Let them be as chaff before the wind, Yahweh's angel driving them on.
35:6: Let their way be dark and slippery, Yahweh's angel pursuing them.
35:7: For without cause they have hidden their net in a pit for me. Without cause they have dug a pit for my soul.
35:8: Let destruction come on him unawares. Let his net that he has hidden catch himself. Let him fall into that destruction.
35:9: My soul shall be joyful in Yahweh. It shall rejoice in his salvation.
35:10: All my bones shall say, "Yahweh, who is like you, Who delivers the poor from him who is too strong for him, Yes, the poor and the needy from him who robs him?"
35:11: Unrighteous witnesses rise up. They ask me about things that I don't know about.
35:12: They reward me evil for good, To the bereaving of my soul.
35:13: But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth. I afflicted my soul with fasting. My prayer returned into my own bosom.
35:14: I behaved myself as though it had been my friend or my brother. I bowed down mourning, as one who mourns his mother.
35:15: But in my adversity, they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together. The attackers gathered themselves together against me, and I didn't know it. They tore at me, and didn't cease.
35:16: Like the profane mockers in feasts, They gnashed their teeth at me.
35:17: Lord, how long will you look on? Rescue my soul from their destruction, My precious life from the lions.
35:18: I will give you thanks in the great assembly. I will praise you among many people.
35:19: Don't let those who are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me; Neither let them wink with the eye who hate me without a cause.
35:20: For they don't speak peace, But they devise deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land.
35:21: Yes, they opened their mouth wide against me. They said, "Aha! Aha! Our eye has seen it!"
35:22: You have seen it, Yahweh. Don't keep silent. Lord, don't be far from me.
35:23: Wake up! Rise up to defend me, my God! My Lord, contend for me!
35:24: Vindicate me, Yahweh my God, according to your righteousness; Don't let them gloat over me.
