Book of Psalms

part 9



1; YAHWEH reigns! Let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of islands be glad.

2; Clouds and darkness are all around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.

3; A fire goes before Him and burns up His enemies all around.

4; His lightnings lit up the world; the earth saw and trembled.

5; The mountains melted like wax before the face of YAHWEH, before the face of YAHWEH of the whole earth.

6; The heavens declare His righteousness and all the people see His glory.

7; All who serve graven images are shamed, those who boast themselves in idols; all gods bow down before Him.

8; Zion heard and was glad; yea, the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of Your judgments, O YAHWEH.

9; For You, YAHWEH, are exalted above all the earth; You are lifted on high far above all gods.

10; You who love YAHWEH, hate evil. He keeps the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.

11; Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

12; Be glad in YAHWEH, O righteous ones; give thanks to the memory of His holiness.



1; A Psalm. O sing to YAHWEH a new song, for He has done wondrous things; His right hand and His set-a-part arm has saved for Him.

2; YAHWEH has revealed His Yâshua to the eyes of the nations.; He unveiled His righteousness

3; He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen Yâshua our Elohim.

4; Shout joyfully to YAHWEH, all the earth; break out and rejoice and sing praise.

5; Sing praise to YAHWEH with the lyre; with the lyre and the voice of a song.

6; With trumpets and the sound of a horn, shout joyfully before YAHWEH the King.

7; Let the sea roar, and the fullness of it; the world, and those who live in it.

8; Let the rivers clap their hands; let the heights shout for joy together,

9; before YAHWEH; for He comes to judge the earth; with righteousness He shall judge the world, and the peoples in uprightness.



1; YAHWEH reigns; let the peoples tremble; He sits between the cherubs; let the earth quake.

2; YAHWEH is great in Zion; and He is high above all the peoples.

3; They shall thank Your great and fearful name; it is set-a-part.

4; The king's strength also loves judgment; You establish uprightness; You worked judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

5; Exalt YAHWEH our Elohim and worship at His footstool; He is set-a-part.

6; Moses and Aaron were among His priests, and Samuel was among those who called on His name; they called to YAHWEH, and He answered them.

7; He spoke to them in the cloudy pillar; they kept His testimonies and the Law that He gave to them.

8; You answered them, O YAHWEH our Elohim; to them You were a El who forgives them, but taking vengeance on their works.

9; Exalt YAHWEH our Elohim and worship at His set-a-part hill; for YAHWEH our Elohim is set-a-part.



1; A Psalm of Thanksgiving. Shout joyfully to YAHWEH, all the land.

2; Worship YAHWEH with gladness; come before His face with joyful singing.

3; Know that YAHWEH, He is Elohim; He has made us, and not we ourselves, His people and the sheep of His pasture.

4; Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, into His courts with praise; be thankful to Him; bless His name.

5; For YAHWEH is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His faithfulness to generation and generation.



1; A Psalm of David. I will sing of mercy and judgment; to You O YAHWEH, I will sing praise.

2; I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way; O when will You come to me? I will walk in the integrity of my heart in the midst of my house.

3; I will set no worthless thing before my eyes; I have hated the work of those who turn aside; it shall not fasten upon me.

4; A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not know evil.

5; Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, I will cut him off; I will not endure him who has high eyes and a proud heart.

6; My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, so that they may dwell with me; he who walks in a perfect way shall serve me.

7; He who works deceit shall not live inside my house; he who speaks lies shall not be established before my eyes.

8; In the mornings I will cut off all the wicked of the land, so that I may cut off all the evil workers from the city of YAHWEH.



1; A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is faint and pours out his complaint before YAHWEH.

Hear my prayer, O YAHWEH, and let my cry come to You.

2; Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my trouble; bow down Your ear to me in the day I call; answer me quickly.

3; For my days are finished in smoke, and my bones are burned like a hearth.

4; My heart is stricken and dried like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread.

5; Because of the voice of my sighing, my bones cleave to my flesh.

6; I am like a pelican of the wilderness; I am like an owl of the desert.

7; I watch and am like a sparrow alone on the housetop.

8; My enemies curse me all the day long; my very name has been used as curse against me.

9; For I have eaten ashes like bread, and have mixed my drink with weeping,

10; because of Your anger and Your wrath; for You have lifted me and cast me down.

11; My days are like a shadow stretched out, and I wither like grass.

12; But You, O YAHWEH, shall dwell forever, and Your memory to generation and generation.

13; You shall arise; have mercy on Zion, for the time to pity her, yea, the appointed time has come.

14; For Your servants take pleasure in its stones, and pity its dust.

15; So nations shall reverence the name of YAHWEH, and all the kings of the earth Your glory.

16; When YAHWEH shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory.

17; He will turn to the prayer of the destitute, and will not despise their prayer.

18; This shall be written for the last generation, and people to be created shall praise YAHWEH.

19; For He has looked down from the height of His sanctuary; YAHWEH looked from Heaven to the earth,

20; to hear the groaning of the prisoner, to set free the sons of death,

21; to declare the name of YAHWEH in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem,

22; when the peoples and the kingdoms are gathered together to serve YAHWEH.

23; He diminished my strength in the way; He shortened my days.

24; I said, O my Elohim, do not take me up in the half of my days; Your years are through the generation of generations.

25; Before time You founded the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.

26; They shall perish, but You shall endure; yea, all of them shall wear out like a garment; You shall change them like clothing, and they shall be changed.

27; But You are He, and Your years shall not be ended.

28; The sons of Your servants shall dwell, and their seed shall be established before You.



1; Of David. Bless YAHWEH, O my soul, and all within me, bless His set-a-part name.

2; Bless YAHWEH, O my soul, and forget not all His rewards;

3; He who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases;

4; who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with kindness and tender mercies;

5; who satisfies your desire with good; your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

6; YAHWEH works righteous deeds and judgments for all the oppressed.

7; He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel.

8; YAHWEH is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and of abundant mercy.

9; He will not always strive, nor will He keep His anger forever.

10; He has not done to us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11; For as the heavens are above the earth, so is His mercy mighty over those who reverence Him.

12; As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

13; As the pity of a father over his sons, so YAHWEH pities those who reverence Him.

14; For He knows how we are made, remembering that we are dust.

15; As for man, his days are as grass; as the flower of the field, so he flourishes.

16; For the wind passes over it, and it is not; and its place never knows it again.

17; But the mercy of YAHWEH is from everlasting, even to everlasting, on those who reverence Him; yea, His righteousness is to the sons of sons;

18; to those who keep His covenant, and to those who remember His instructions, to do them.

19; YAHWEH has prepared His throne in Heaven, and His kingdom rules over all.

20; Bless YAHWEH, O angels of His; mighty in strength; doing His Word; listening to the voice of His Word.

21; Bless YAHWEH, all His hosts, ministers of His, doing His will.

22; Bless YAHWEH, all His works in all the places of His dominion; bless YAHWEH, O my soul.



1; Bless YAHWEH, O my soul! O YAHWEH my Elohim, You are very great; You have put on honor and majesty,

2; covering Yourself with light like a cloak, and stretching out the heavens like a curtain;

3; who lays beams in the waters of His upper rooms; setting thick clouds as His chariots; walking on the wings of the wind.

4; He makes His cherubs spirits, His ministers a flaming fire.

5; He founded the earth on its foundations; it shall not be shaken forever and ever.

6; You have covered the deep as with a robe; the waters stood above the mountains.

7; From Your rebuke, they flee; from the sound of Your thunder, they hurry away.

8; They go up the mountains; they go down the valleys to the place which You founded for them.

9; You have set a boundary that they may not pass over; they shall not return to cover the earth.

10; He sends springs into the valleys; they flow between the hills;

11; they give drink to every animal of the field; wild donkeys break their thirst;

12; over them the birds of the heavens dwell; they give voice from between the branches.

13; He waters the hills from His upper rooms; the earth is satisfied from the fruit of Your works.

14; He causes the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for the service of man, to bring food out of the earth.

15; And wine cheers the heart of man; oil makes his face shine, and bread sustains the heart of man.

16; The trees of YAHWEH are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon that He planted;

17; there where the birds nest; the fir trees are the house of the stork;

18; high hills are for the wild goats; rocks are a refuge for the badgers.

19; He made the moon for seasons; the sun knows its going down.

20; You put darkness, and it is night; in it all the forest animals creep.

21; The young lions roar for prey, and to seek their food from El.

22; The sun rises; they are gathered, and go to their dens to lie down.

23; Man goes out to his work, and to his labor until the evening.

24; O YAHWEH, how many are Your works! You have made all of them in wisdom; the earth is full of Your riches.

25; This is the sea, great and wide on both hands; there are creeping things even without number; living things, small and great.

26; There the ships go; You formed this great sea-animal to play in it.

27; All of them wait for You to give them their food in due season.

28; You give to them; they gather; You open Your hand, and they are filled with good.

29; You hide Your face, and they are troubled; You gather their breath, and they expire and return to their dust.

30; You send out Your Spirit, and they are created; and You renew the face of the earth.

31; The glory of YAHWEH shall be forever; YAHWEH shall rejoice in His works.

32; He looks to the earth, and it trembles; He touches the hills, and they smoke.

33; I will sing to YAHWEH during my life; I will sing praise to my Elohim while I still exist.

34; My meditation on Him shall be sweet; I will be glad in YAHWEH.

35; Let sinners be consumed out of the earth and let the wicked be no more; bless YAHWEH, O my soul; praise YAHWEH!



1; O give thanks to YAHWEH; call on His name; make His deeds known among the peoples.

2; Sing to Him; sing praises to Him; tell of all His wonders.

3; Glory in His set-a-part name; let the heart of those who seek YAHWEH rejoice.

4; Seek YAHWEH and His strength; seek His face without ceasing.

5; Remember His wonders that He has done, His miracles, and the judgments of His mouth,

6; O seed of His servant Abraham; O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones.

7; He is YAHWEH our Elohim; His judgments are in all the earth;

8; He has remembered His covenant forever; the Word He commanded to a thousand generations;

9; which He cut with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac;

10; and He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel for a perpetual covenant;

11; saying, to you I will give the land of Canaan, the portion of your inheritance;

12; when they were a few men of number; very few, and aliens in it.

13; And they went about from nation to nation; from one kingdom to another people.

14; He allowed no man to oppress them; yea, He reproved kings for their sakes;

15; saying, Touch not My anointed; and do My prophets no harm.

16; And He called a famine on the land; He broke the whole staff of bread.

17; He sent a man before them, Joseph, being sold for a slave;

18; they hurt his feet with chains; his soul came into iron;

19; until the time His Word came, the Word of YAHWEH refined him;

20; the king, the ruler of peoples, sent and released him and even set him free;

21; he made him master of his house, and ruler over all he owned;

22; to bind his leaders at his will, and to teach his elders wisdom.

23; Israel also came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

24; And He increased His people greatly and made them stronger than their enemies.

25; He turned their heart to hate His people, to deal craftily with His servants.

26; He sent His servant Moses and Aaron whom He had chosen.

27; They put things of His signs among them; yea, miracless in the land of Ham.

28; He sent darkness and made it dark; and they did not rebel against His Word.

29; He turned their waters into blood and killed their fish.

30; Their land swarmed with frogs in the rooms of their kings.

31; He spoke, and fly swarms came; gnats in all their borders.

32; He gave hail for their rain, flaming fire in their land.

33; He struck their vines also, and their fig trees; and He broke the trees of their borders.

34; He spoke, and locusts came; and larvae without number;

35; and they ate up all the plants in the land; yea, ate the fruit of their ground.

36; He also struck all the first-born in their land, the first-fruit of all their vigor.

37; And He led them out with silver and gold; and among their tribes, not one was weak in their legs.

38; Egypt was glad when they went out, for their dread had fallen on them.

39; He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.

40; He asked, and He brought quail; and satisfied them with the food from the heavens.

41; He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; they went in the dry places like a river.

42; For He remembered His set-a-part promise and His servant Abraham;

43; and He brought His people out with joy; His chosen ones with gladness.

44; And He gave to them the lands of the nations; and they inherited the labor of the peoples;

45; so that they might observe His statutes and keep His Torah. Praise YAHWEH!
