My heart is unwavering, God — 
    my heart is unwavering.
I will sing and make music.
     Wake up, my glory!
    Wake up, harp and lyre!
    I will wake the dawn itself!
I will give thanks to you,
my Lord,
    among all the peoples;
I will make music to you among the nations (Psalm 57:7-9)

Morning, noon, and night
    you hear my concerns
    and my complaints.
I am attacked from all sides,
    but you will rescue me
    unharmed by the battle.
You have always ruled,
    and you will hear me.
You will defeat my enemies
    because they won’t turn
    and worship you (Psalm 55:17-19)

Give thanks to Yahweh because he is good,
    because his mercy endures forever.
         Israel should say,
            “His mercy endures forever.”
         The descendants of Aaron should say,
            “His mercy endures forever.”
         Those who fear Yahweh should say,
            “His mercy endures forever (Psalm 118:1-14)

A Psalm for the Sabbath.

It is good to give thanks to Yahweh,
    to make music to praise your name, O Elyon.
It is good to announce your mercy in the morning
    and your faithfulness in the evening
        on a ten-stringed instrument and a harp
            and with a melody on a lyre.

You made me find joy in what you have done, O Yahweh.
    I will sing joyfully about the works of your hands.
How spectacular are your works, O Yahweh!
    How very deep are your thoughts!

A stupid person cannot know
    and a fool cannot understand
        that wicked people sprout like grass
            and all troublemakers blossom like flowers,
                only to be destroyed forever.

But you, O Yahweh, are highly honored forever.
Now look at your enemies, O Yahweh.
    Now look at your enemies.
        They disappear, and all troublemakers are scattered.

But you make me as strong as a wild bull,
    and soothing lotion is poured on me.
My eyes gloat over those who spy on me.
    My ears hear the cries of evildoers attacking me.

Righteous people flourish like palm trees
    and grow tall like the cedars in Lebanon.
They are planted in Yahweh’s house.
    They blossom in Elohim’s courtyards.
Even when they are old, they still bear fruit.
    They are always healthy and fresh.
They make it known that Yahweh is decent.
    He is my rock.
        He is never unfair. (Psalm 92)

Uncover my eyes
    so that I may see the miraculous things in your teachings (Psalm 119:18)

One thing I have asked from the Lord,
    that will I seek after—
for me to dwell in the house of the lord
    all the days of my life,
to see the beauty of the Lord,
    and to inquire in His temple (Psalm 27:4)
