POD - Psalm 69

Psalm 69

1 Save me, O God!

For the waters have come up to my neck.

2 I sink in deep mire,

Where there is no standing;

I have come into deep waters,

Where the floods overflow me.

3 I am weary with my crying;

My throat is dry;

My eyes fail while I wait for my God.

4 Those who hate me without a cause

Are more than the hairs of my head;

They are mighty who would destroy me,

Being my enemies wrongfully;

Though I have stolen nothing,

I still must restore it.

5 O God, You know my foolishness;

And my sins are not hidden from You.

Psalm 116

1-6 I love God because he listened to me,

listened as I begged for mercy.

He listened so intently

as I laid out my case before him.

Death stared me in the face,

hell was hard on my heels.

Up against it, I didn't know which way to turn;

then I called out to God for help:

"Please, God!" I cried out.

"Save my life!"

God is gracious—it is he who makes things right,

our most compassionate God.

God takes the side of the helpless;

when I was at the end of my rope, he saved me.


7-8 I said to myself, "Relax and rest.

God has showered you with blessings.

Soul, you've been rescued from death;

Eye, you've been rescued from tears;

And you, Foot, were kept from stumbling."


9-11 I'm striding in the presence of God,

alive in the land of the living!

I stayed faithful, though bedeviled,

and despite a ton of bad luck,

Despite giving up on the human race,

saying, "They're all liars and cheats."


12-19 What can I give back to God

for the blessings he's poured out on me?

I'll lift high the cup of salvation—a toast to God!

I'll pray in the name of God;

I'll complete what I promised God I'd do,

and I'll do it together with his people.

When they arrive at the gates of death,

God welcomes those who love him.

Oh, God, here I am, your servant,

your faithful servant: set me free for your service!

I'm ready to offer the thanksgiving sacrifice

and pray in the name of God.

I'll complete what I promised God I'd do,

and I'll do it in company with his people,

In the place of worship, in God's house,

in Jerusalem, God's city.

Hallelujah!

POD - Psalm 22


Psalm 22

(as read by Kathrine D)

For the Chief Musician; set to “The Doe of the Morning.” A Psalm by David.

22:1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?

22:2 My God, I cry in the daytime, but you don’t answer;
in the night season, and am not silent.
22:3 But you are holy, you who inhabit the praises of Israel.

22:4 Our fathers trusted in you.
They trusted, and you delivered them.

22:5 They cried to you, and were delivered.
They trusted in you, and were not disappointed.

22:6 But I am a worm, and no man;
a reproach of men, and despised by the people.

22:7 All those who see me mock me.
They insult me with their lips.
They shake their heads, saying,

22:8 “He trusts in Yahweh; let him deliver him.
Let him rescue him, since he delights in him.”

22:9 But you brought me out of the womb.
You made me trust at my mother’s breasts.

22:10 I was thrown on you from my mother’s womb.
You are my God since my mother bore me.

22:11 Don’t be far from me, for trouble is near.
For there is none to help.

22:12 Many bulls have surrounded me.
Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me.

22:13 They open their mouths wide against me, lions tearing prey and roaring.

22:14 I am poured out like water.
All my bones are out of joint.
My heart is like wax; it is melted within me.

22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd.
My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth.
You have brought me into the dust of death.

22:16 For dogs have surrounded me.
A company of evildoers have enclosed me.
They have pierced my hands and feet.

22:17 I can count all of my bones.
They look and stare at me.

22:18 They divide my garments among them.
They cast lots for my clothing.

22:19 But don’t be far off, Yahweh.
You are my help: hurry to help me.

22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword,
my precious life from the power of the dog.

22:21 Save me from the lion’s mouth!
Yes, from the horns of the wild oxen, you have answered me.

22:22 I will declare your name to my brothers.
In the midst of the assembly, I will praise you.

22:23 You who fear Yahweh, praise him!
All you descendants of Jacob, glorify him!
Stand in awe of him, all you descendants of Israel!

22:24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted,
Neither has he hidden his face from him;
but when he cried to him, he heard.

22:25 Of you comes my praise in the great assembly.
I will pay my vows before those who fear him.

22:26 The humble shall eat and be satisfied.
They shall praise Yahweh who seek after him.
Let your hearts live forever.

22:27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to Yahweh.
All the relatives of the nations shall worship before you.

22:28 For the kingdom is Yahweh’s.
He is the ruler over the nations.

22:29 All the rich ones of the earth shall eat and worship.
All those who go down to the dust shall bow before him,
even he who can’t keep his soul alive.

22:30 Posterity shall serve him.
Future generations shall be told about the Lord.

22:31 They shall come and shall declare his righteousness to a
people that shall be born, for he has done it.

POD - Psalm 123

Psalm 123

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

To you I do lift up my eyes,
you who sit in the heavens.



Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress;
so our eyes look to Yahweh,
our God, until he has mercy on us.



Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us,
for we have endured much contempt.



Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease,
with the contempt of the proud.

POD - Psalm 103

podintro.jpg

Psalm 103

(read by Pammy)

 
Praise Yahweh, my soul! All that is within me, praise his holy name!


Praise Yahweh, my soul, and don't forget all his benefits;


who forgives all your sins; who heals all your diseases;


who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies;  who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.



Yahweh executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the children of Israel.


Yahweh is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness.
He will not always accuse; neither will he stay angry forever.


He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities.



For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him.


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


Like a father has compassion on his children, so Yahweh has compassion on those who fear him.


For he knows how we are made. He remembers that we are dust.


As for man, his days are like grass. As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.



For the wind passes over it, and it is gone. Its place remembers it no more.


But Yahweh's loving kindness is from everlasting to everlasting with those who fear him, his righteousness to children's children;


to those who keep his covenant, to those who remember to obey his precepts.


Yahweh has established his throne in the heavens. His kingdom rules over all.


Praise Yahweh, you angels of his, who are mighty in strength, who fulfill his word, obeying the voice of his word.



Praise Yahweh, all you armies of his, you servants of his, who do his pleasure.


Praise Yahweh, all you works of his, in all places of his dominion.
Praise Yahweh, my soul!

POD - Psalm 95

podintro.jpg

Psalm 95

(read by Carol)

95:1 Oh come, let's sing to Yahweh.
Let's shout aloud to the rock of our salvation!

95:2 Let's come before his presence with thanksgiving.
Let's extol him with songs!

95:3 For Yahweh is a great God,
a great King above all gods.

95:4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth.
The heights of the mountains are also his.

95:5 The sea is his, and he made it.
His hands formed the dry land.

95:6 Oh come, let's worship and bow down.
Let's kneel before Yahweh, our Maker,

95:7 for he is our God.
We are the people of his pasture, and the sheep in his care.
Today, oh that you would hear his voice!

95:8 Don't harden your heart,
as at Meribah,
as in the day of Massah in the wilderness,

95:9 when your fathers tempted me, tested me,
and saw my work.

95:10 Forty long years I was grieved with that generation,
and said, "It is a people that errs in their heart. They have not known my ways."

95:11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,
"They won't enter into my rest."

POD - Psalm 57


Psalm 57

For the Chief Musician. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.”
A poem by David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.


57:1 Be merciful to me, God, be merciful to me, for my soul takes refuge in you.
Yes, in the shadow of your wings, I will take refuge, until disaster has passed.


57:2 I cry out to God Most High, to God who accomplishes my requests for me.


57:3 He will send from heaven, and save me,
he rebukes the one who is pursuing me.



Selah.



God will send out his loving kindness and his truth.



57:4 My soul is among lions.
I lie among those who are set on fire, even the sons of men,
whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.


57:5 Be exalted, God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be above all the earth!


57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps. My soul is bowed down.
They dig a pit before me. They fall into its midst themselves.



Selah.



57:7 My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast.
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises.


57:8 Wake up, my glory!
Wake up, psaltery and harp!
I will wake up the dawn.


57:9 I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples.
I will sing praises to you among the nations.


57:10 For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens, and your truth to the skies.


57:11 Be exalted, God, above the heavens.
Let your glory be over all the earth.

POD - Psalm 115

Psalm 115


Not to us, O Lord, not to us,


but to your name goes all the glory

for your unfailing love and faithfulness!
Why let the nations say,

"Where is their God?"


Our God is in the heavens,

and he does as he wishes.

Their idols are merely things of silver and gold,

shaped by human hands.


They have mouths but cannot speak,

and eyes but cannot see.
They have ears but cannot hear,

and noses but cannot smell.


They have hands but cannot feel,

and feet but cannot walk,

and throats but cannot make a sound.
And those who make idols are just like them,

as are all who trust in them.



O Israel, trust the Lord!

He is your helper and your shield.


O priests, descendants of Aaron, trust the Lord!

He is your helper and your shield.
All you who fear the Lord, trust the Lord!

He is your helper and your shield.


The Lord remembers us and will bless us.



He will bless the people of Israel

and bless the priests, the descendants of Aaron.


He will bless those who fear the Lord,

both great and lowly.
May the Lord richly bless

both you and your children.



May you be blessed by the Lord,

who made heaven and earth.


The heavens belong to the Lord,

but he has given the earth to all humanity.


The dead cannot sing praises to the Lord,

for they have gone into the silence of the grave.
But we can praise the Lord

both now and forever!

Praise the Lord!

Psalm 74

Right mouse click to save/download this Psalm as a MP3 file

A maskil of Asaph.

1 Why have you rejected us forever, O God? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?


2
Remember the people you purchased of old, the tribe of your inheritance, whom you redeemed- Mount Zion, where you dwelt.


3
Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins, all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary.


4
Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs.


5
They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees.


6
They smashed all the carved paneling with their axes and hatchets.
7 They burned your sanctuary to the ground; they defiled the dwelling place of your Name.
8 They said in their hearts, "We will crush them completely!" They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land.


9
We are given no miraculous signs; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be.


10
How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever?


11
Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them!



12
But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth.


13
It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters.


14
It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert.


15
It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever flowing rivers.


16
The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon.


17
It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.


18
Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name.


19
Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever.


20
Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land.


21
Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name.


22
Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long.


23
Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually
