Book of Psalms

part 5



1; To the chief musician. Do not destroy. A secret treasure of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave. Be merciful to me, O Elohim, be merciful to me, for my soul trusts in You; yea, in the shadow of Your wings I will make my hiding place, until the great destruction passes by.

2; I will cry to Elohim Most High, to El who works for me.

3; He shall send from Heaven and save me: and He will shame the one who crushes me. Selah. Elohim shall send His mercy and His truth.

4; My soul is among lions; I lie among those on fire, the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue is a sharp sword.

5; Be praised above the heavens, O Elohim; let Your glory be over the whole earth.

6; They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down; they have dug a pit before me; they have fallen into it. Selah.

7; My heart is fixed, O Elohim, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise.

8; Wake up my glory! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will stir the morning dawn with praise.

9; I will praise You among the peoples, O YAHWEH, I will sing to You among the nations.

10; For Your mercy is great to the heavens, and Your truth to the clouds.

11; Be exalted above the heavens, O Elohim; Your glory over the whole earth.



1; To the chief musician. Do not destroy. A secret treasure of David. Will you indeed speak righteousness in silence? Do you judge uprightly, O sons of men?

2; Yes, in your heart you work wickedness, you weigh the violence of your hands in the land.

3; The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from the belly, speaking lies.

4; Their poison is like the poison of a snake; like the deaf adder he stops his ear,

5; which will not hear the charmer's voice, skillful charmer of charms.

6; O Elohim, break their teeth in their mouth; break out the big teeth of the young lions, O YAHWEH.

7; Let them melt away like waters; they flow off to them; he treads his arrows; let them be as though they were cut off;

8; Let them be as a snail that goes into melting, a miscarriage of a woman; they do not see the sun.

9; Before your pots can discern the thorns, whether green or glowing, He shall sweep it away.

10; The righteous shall rejoice when he sees vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

11; And man will say, Truly, a fruit is to the righteous; Truly, there is an Elohim; They are judging in the earth.



1; To the chief musician. Do not destroy. A secret treasure of David, when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him. Deliver me from my enemies, O my Elohim; set me on high from the ones who rise up against me.

2; Deliver me from the workers of evil, and save me from bloody men.

3; For lo, they lie in wait for my soul, mighty ones gather against me; not for my transgression, and not for my sin, O YAHWEH.

4; Without my fault they run and prepare themselves; awaken to help me, and look on me.

5; And You, O YAHWEH Elohim of Hosts, the Elohim of Israel: Awake to visit all the nations; be not merciful to any slyly plotting evil. Selah.

6; They return at evening; they howl like a dog, and go around the city.

7; Behold, they bellow with their mouth; swords are in their lips; for they say, Who hears?

8; But You, O YAHWEH, shall laugh at them; you shall mock at all the nations.

9; O my Strength, let me look to You; for Elohim is my strong tower.

10; The Elohim of my mercy shall go before me; Elohim shall let me see my desire on my enemies.

11; Do not kill them, lest my people forget; scatter them by Your power and bring them down, O YAHWEH our shield.

12; For the sin of their mouth is the word of their lips, even let them be captured in their pride, and for cursing and the lying which they speak.

13; Consume them that they may not be in Your anger; consume, so that they may not be; and they shall know that Elohim is ruling in Jacob, to the ends of the earth. Selah.

14; Yes, they shall return at evening; let them howl like the dog and go around the city;

15; let them wander up and down for food, and growl if they are not satisfied.

16; But I will sing of Your power; yes, I will sing of Your mercy in the morning. For You have been my strong tower, and my hiding place in the day of my trouble.

17; To You, O my strength, I will sing; for Elohim is my strong tower, the Elohim of my mercy.



1; To the chief musician. On the Lily of Testimony. A secret treasure of David, to teach; when he struggled with Aram-Naharaim, and with Aram- Zobah; when Joab returned, and struck twelve thousand of Edom in the Valley of Salt. O Elohim! You cast us off; You broke us; You who were angry; take us back.

2; You made the earth tremble; You tore it; heal its breaks, for it is shaking.

3; You have shown Your people hardship; You made us drink the wine of trembling.

4; You have given a banner to those who reverence You, to lift it up because of the truth. Selah.

5; Save with Your right hand and answer me, that Your beloved may be delivered.

6; Elohim has spoken in His holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and measure out the valley of Succoth.

7; Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim is the strength of My head; Judah is My lawgiver;

8; Moab is My washpot; over Edom I will cast out My shoe; Philistia, shout in triumph.

9; Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom?

10; Have not You, O Elohim, cast us aside? And will You not go forth with our armies, O Elohim?

11; Give us help against our oppressor, for vain is the deliverance of man.

12; Through Elohim we shall do mighty things; for He shall tread on our oppressors.



1; To the chief musician. On stringed instruments. Of David. Hear my cry, O Elohim, and attend to my prayer.

2; From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart faints; Oh lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

3; For You have been my shelter, a strong tower before the enemy.

4; I will dwell in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.

5; For You, O Elohim, have heard my vows; You appointed the inheritance of those who reverence Your name.

6; You will add days to the days of the king; his years will be as generations to generations.

7; He shall abide forever before Elohim; appoint mercy and truth to preserve him.

8; So I will sing praise to Your name forever, so that I may pay my vows day by day.



1; To the chief musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. Only to Elohim is my soul silent; from Him comes my YAHSHUA.

2; He alone is my rock and my salvation, my strong tower; I shall not be greatly moved.

3; Until when will you break in against a man? You will shatter him, all of you, like a bowing wall, a tottering fence.

4; Surely, they plotted to cast him down from his excellent dignity; they delight in lies; they bless with their mouth, but they curse in their inward parts. Selah.

5; Only be silent to Elohim, O my soul, for my hope comes from Him.

6; He alone is my rock and my salvation, my strong tower; I shall not be shaken.

7; On Elohim is my YAHSHUA and my glory; my strong rock, my refuge is in Elohim.

8; Trust in Him at every time, you people; pour out your heart before Him; Elohim is a refuge for us. Selah.

9; Surely the sons of men are vanity, the sons of man are a lie; they go up in the scales; they are lighter than vanity together.

10; Trust not in oppression, and do not be vain in robbery; if riches increase to you, do not set your heart on them.

11; Elohim has spoken once; twice I have heard this, that power belongs to Elohim;

12; Also mercy belongs to You, O YAHWEH, for You reward a man according to his work.



1; A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O Elohim, You are my El; I earnestly seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my  flesh longs for You, as in a dry and weary land without water.

2; Therefore I have seen you in the set-a-part place, seeing Your power and Your glory.

3; For Your loving-kindness is better than life; my lips give praise to You.

4; So I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.

5; My soul shall be satisfied, as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips,

6; when I remember You upon my bed. I will meditate on You in the night watches.

7; For You have been a help to me, and I will rejoice under the shadow of Your wings.

8; My soul is cleaved after You; Your right hand upholds me.

9; And those who seek to destroy my life shall go into the depths of the earth.

10; They shall pour him out by the sword; they shall be a serving for jackals.

11; But the king shall rejoice in Elohim; everyone who swears by Him shall glory, because the mouth of the one speaking a lie will be stopped.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. O Elohim, hear my voice in my complaint; guard my life from the dread of the enemy.

2; Hide me from the counsel of those who destroy, from the tumult of evildoers,

3; who sharpen their tongue like a sword; they tread their arrows, a bitter word,

4; so that they may shoot at the innocent from a lurking place; suddenly they shoot at him, and fear not.

5; They make themselves strong in an evil plan; they talk of laying snares secretly; they say, Who shall see them?

6; They search into injustice, saying, We have finished a well laid plan. Yea, the inward part of man and the heart are deep!

7; But Elohim shall shoot an arrow at them; their wounds shall suddenly appear.

8; So they shall be confounded; their tongue falls upon themselves; everyone seeing them shall flee.

9; And all men shall reverence and shall declare the work of Elohim; yea, they shall in wisdom consider His work.

10; The righteous shall rejoice in YAHWEH, and shall take refuge in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm and Song of David. To You silence is praise, O Elohim, in Zion; and to You is a vow paid.

2; To You who hears prayer, all flesh comes.

3; Things of iniquity, our transgressions, are mightier than I; You atone for them.

4; Blessed is the one You choose and cause to come near You; he shall dwell in Your courts; we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your set-a-part sanctuary.

5; You will answer us in righteousness by awesome things, O Elohim of our salvation (Yâshua); the confidence of all the ends of the earth and the sea, of those afar off.

6; By Your strength the mountains are established, banded together with might.

7; You still the roaring of the sea, the roar of their waves, and the tumult of the peoples.

8; And those living in the uttermost parts are afraid of Your signs; You make the outgoings of the morning and the evening to rejoice.

9; You visit the earth and water it; You greatly enrich it; the river of Elohim is full of water. You provide their grain, for in this way You have prepared it.

10; You fill its terraces with water. You deepen its furrows. You make it soft with showers. You bless the sprouting of it.

11; You crown the year of Your goodness, and Your paths drip with fatness.

12; The pastures of the wilderness drop, and the little hills gird themselves with joy.

13; The meadows are outfitted with flocks; the valleys are also covered with grain; they shout for joy and sing.



1; To the chief musician. A Song. A Psalm. Make a joyful noise to Elohim, all the earth;

2; Sing out the honor of His name; give glory to His praise.

3; Say to Elohim, How much to be feared are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power, Your enemies pretend obedience to You.

4; All the earth shall worship You; and they sing to You; they shall praise Your name. Selah.

5; Come and see Elohim's works, who is feared in His acts toward the sons of men.

6; He turns the sea into dry land; they go through the river on foot; there we will rejoice with Him.

7; He rules by His power forever; His eyes search out the nations; let not the rebels exalt themselves. Selah.

8; Bless our Elohim, O peoples, and make heard the voice of His praise;

9; Who holds our soul in life and does not allow our foot to slide.

10; For You, O Elohim, have proved us; You have tested us as silver is refined.

11; You have brought us into the net; You laid afflictions on our loins.

12; You have let men ride at our head; we went through fire and through water, but You brought us out to plenty.

13; I will go into Your house with burnt offerings; I will pay You my vows,

14; which my lips have opened, and my mouth has spoken in my trouble.

15; I will offer burnt sacrifices of fatlings to You, with the incense of rams; I will offer bulls with goats. Selah.

16; Come, hear, and let me recount, all you who reverence Elohim, what He has done for my soul.

17; I cried to Him with my mouth, and exaltations were under my tongue.

18; If I had regarded iniquity in my heart, YAHWEH would not have heard.

19; Surely, Elohim has heard; He has attended to the voice of my prayer.

20; Blessed be Elohim, who has not turned away my prayer and His mercy from me!



1; To the chief musician, for stringed instruments. A Psalm. A song. May Elohim be merciful to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us. Selah.

2; That Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation (Yâshua) among all nations.

3; Let the peoples thank You, O Elohim; let all the peoples thank You.

4; Oh let the peoples be glad and sing for joy; for You shall judge the peoples

uprightly and govern the peoples on earth. Selah.

5; Let the peoples give thanks to You, O Elohim; let all the peoples give thanks to You.

6; The earth has given its increase; Elohim, our own Elohim, shall bless us.

7; Elohim shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall reverence Him.



1; To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. A Song. Elohim rises up and His enemies are scattered; and those who hate Him flee from His face.

2; As smoke is driven away, You drive them away; as wax melts before the fire, the wicked perish in Elohim's presence.

3; But the righteous are glad; they shout for joy before Elohim; yea, they exult with gladness.

4; Sing to Elohim, sing praise to His name; lift up a song for Him who rides in the deserts, by His name Yah; yea, exult in His presence.

5; In His set-a-part dwelling Elohim is a father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows.

6; Elohim causes the lonely to live at home; He brings out those who are bound with chains, while the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

7; O Elohim, when You went out before Your people, when You walked on through the wilderness. Selah.

8; The earth shook, and the heavens dropped before Elohim, this Sinai before Elohim, the Elohim of Israel.

9; O Elohim, You sent down a shower of plenty, by which You upheld Your inheritance when it was weary.

10; Your flock lived in it. You, O Elohim, have prepared for the poor in Your goodness.

11; YAHWEH gave the Word; the bearers of it were a great army.

12; Kings of armies fled, they ran away; yea, she who stayed home has divided the plunder.

13; When you lie among the sheepfolds, the wings of a dove are covered with silver, and its feathers with gleaming gold.

14; When the Almighty scatters kings in it, it snows on Mount Salmon.

15; Elohim's mountain is The mountain of Bashan; the Bashan range is a mountain of peaks.

16; Why do you gaze in envy, O mountain range, at the mountain Elohim desired for His dwelling? Yea, YAHWEH will dwell in it forever.

17; The chariots of Elohim are twenty thousand, thousands of the same, YAHWEH is among them, in Sinai, in the set-a-part place.

18; You have gone up on high; You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men; yea, to dwell among the rebellious, O Yah Elohim.

19; Blessed be YAHWEH: day by day He carries a load for us, the El of our salvation (Yâshua). Selah.

20; Our El is to us the El of deliverance; and to YAHWEH Adonai are the issues of death.

21; Surely, Elohim will crush the head of His enemies, the hairy crown of him who walks on in his guilt.

22; YAHWEH said, I will bring back from Bashan; I will bring back My people from the depths of the sea;

23; so that your foot may be dashed in the blood of your enemies, the tongue of your dogs in it.

24; They have seen Your processions, O Elohim, the caravans of my Elohim, my King, in the set-a-part place.

25; The singers went before, then the musicians came; among them were the virgins playing the timbrels.

26; O bless Elohim in the congregations, YAHWEH, from the fountain of Israel.

27; There is little Benjamin ruling them; the leaders of Judah in their crowd, and the leaders of Zebulun, the leaders of Naphtali.

28; Your Elohim has commanded your strength; O Elohim, be strong, in this that You have worked out for us.

29; Because of Your sanctuary over Jerusalem, kings shall bring a present to You.

30; Rebuke the wild beasts of the reeds, the herd of bulls, with the calves of the peoples, trampling down with pieces of silver. He scatters the people who delight in war.

31; Let nobles be brought out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall run up her hands to Elohim.

32; Sing to Elohim, kingdoms of the earth, praises to YAHWEH. Selah.

33; To Him who rides on the heavens of heavens of old; lo, He gives forth His voice, a mighty voice.

34; Give might to Elohim over Israel; His majesty and His strength in the skies.

35; O Elohim, You are awesome out of Your set-a-part places; the Elohim of Israel is He who gives strength and power to the people. Blessed be Elohim!
