Psalm 82 - 89


American Standard Version

Psalm 82

1 God standeth in the congregation of God; He judgeth among the gods.

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, And respect the persons of the wicked? Selah

3 Judge the poor and fatherless: Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

4 Rescue the poor and needy: Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They know not, neither do they understand; They walk to and fro in darkness: All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, Ye are gods, And all of you sons of the Most High.

7 Nevertheless ye shall die like men, And fall like one of the princes.

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; For thou shalt inherit all the nations.

Psalm 83

1 O God, keep not thou silence: Hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult; And they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 Thy take crafty counsel against thy people, And consult together against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; That the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent; Against thee do they make a covenant:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre:

8 Assyria also is joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah

9 Do thou unto them as unto Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;

10 Who perished at Endor, Who became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yea, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves in possession The habitations of God.

13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust; As stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire that burneth the forest, And as the flame that setteth the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with thy tempest, And terrify them with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.

17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever; Yea, let them be confounded and perish;

18 That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!

2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; My heart and my flesh cry out unto the living God.

3 Yea, the sparrow hath found her a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts, My King, and my God.

4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: They will be still praising thee. Selah

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; In whose heart are the highways to Zion.

6 Passing through the valley of Weeping they make it a place of springs; Yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength; Every one of them appeareth before God in Zion.

8 O Jehovah God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah

9 Behold, O God our shield, And look upon the face of thine anointed.

10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For Jehovah God is a sun and a shield: Jehovah will give grace and glory; No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

12 O Jehovah of hosts, Blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

Psalm 85

1 Jehovah, thou hast been favorable unto thy land; Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people; Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah

3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath; Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, And cause thine indignation toward us to cease.

5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6 Wilt thou not quicken us again, That thy people may rejoice in thee?

7 Show us thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah, And grant us thy salvation.

8 I will hear what God Jehovah will speak; For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: But let them not turn again to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him, That glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth are met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth springeth out of the earth; And righteousness hath looked down from heaven.

12 Yea, Jehovah will give that which is good; And our land shall yield its increase.

13 Righteousness shall go before him, And shall make his footsteps a way to walk in.

Psalm 86

1 Bow down thine ear, O Jehovah, and answer me; For I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve my soul; For I am godly: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord; For unto thee do I cry all the day long.

4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant; For unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness unto all them that call upon thee.

6 Give ear, O Jehovah, unto my prayer; And hearken unto the voice of my supplications.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee; For thou wilt answer me.

8 There is none like unto thee among the gods, O Lord; Neither are there any works like unto thy works.

9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; And they shall glorify thy name.

10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: Thou art God alone.

11 Teach me thy way, O Jehovah; I will walk in thy truth: Unite my heart to fear thy name.

12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart; And I will glorify thy name for evermore.

13 For great is thy lovingkindness toward me; And thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14 O God, the proud are risen up against me, And a company of violent men have sought after my soul, And have not set thee before them.

15 But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

16 Oh turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; Give thy strength unto thy servant, And save the son of thy handmaid.

17 Show me a token for good, That they who hate me may see it, and be put to shame, Because thou, Jehovah, hast helped me, and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

2 Jehovah loveth the gates of Zion More than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah

4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon as among them that know me: Behold, Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia: This one was born there.

5 Yea, of Zion it shall be said, This one and that one was born in her; And the Most High himself will establish her.

6 Jehovah will count, when he writeth up the peoples, This one was born there. Selah

7 They that sing as well as they that dance shall say, All my fountains are in thee.

Psalm 88

1 O Jehovah, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee.

2 Let my prayer enter into thy presence; Incline thine ear unto my cry.

3 For my soul is full of troubles, And my life draweth nigh unto Sheol.

4 I am reckoned with them that go down into the pit; I am as a man that hath no help,

5 Cast off among the dead, Like the slain that lie in the grave, Whom thou rememberest no more, And they are cut off from thy hand.

6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in the deeps.

7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, And thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah

8 Thou hast put mine acquaintance far from me; Thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

9 Mine eye wasteth away by reason of affliction: I have called daily upon thee, O Jehovah; I have spread forth my hands unto thee.

10 Wilt thou show wonders to the dead? Shall they that are decreased arise and praise thee? Selah

11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? Or thy faithfulness in Destruction?

12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? And thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But unto thee, O Jehovah, have I cried; And in the morning shall my prayer come before thee.

14 Jehovah, why castest thou off my soul? Why hidest thou thy face from me?

15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: While I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.

16 Thy fierce wrath is gone over me; Thy terrors have cut me off.

17 They came round about me like water all the day long; They compassed me about together.

18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, And mine acquaintance into darkness.

Psalm 89

1 I will sing of the lovingkindness of Jehovah for ever: With my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.

2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever; Thy faithfulness wilt thou establish in the very heavens.

3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant:

4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, And build up thy throne to all generations. Selah

5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Jehovah; Thy faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.

6 For who in the skies can be compared unto Jehovah? Who among the sons of the mighty is like unto Jehovah,

7 A God very terrible in the council of the holy ones, And to be feared above all them that are round about him?

8 O Jehovah God of hosts, Who is a mighty one, like unto thee, O Jehovah? And thy faithfulness is round about thee.

9 Thou rulest the pride of the sea: When the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; Thou hast scattered thine enemies with the arm of thy strength.

11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: The world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

12 The north and the south, thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon rejoice in thy name.

13 Thou hast a mighty arm; Strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of thy throne: Lovingkindness and truth go before thy face.

15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: They walk, O Jehovah, in the light of thy countenance.

16 In thy name do they rejoice all the day; And in thy righteousness are they exalted.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength; And in thy favor our horn shall be exalted.

18 For our shield belongeth unto Jehovah; And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy saints, And saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

20 I have found David my servant; With my holy oil have I anointed him:

21 With whom my hand shall be established; Mine arm also shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not exact from him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

23 And I will beat down his adversaries before him, And smite them that hate him.

24 But my faithfulness and my lovingkindness shall be with him; And in my name shall his horn be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.

26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.

27 I also will make him my first-born, The highest of the kings of the earth.

28 My lovingkindness will I keep for him for evermore; And my covenant shall stand fast with him.

29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake my law, And walk not in mine ordinances;

31 If they break my statutes, And keep not my commandments;

32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.

33 But my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, Nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

34 My covenant will I not break, Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David:

36 His seed shall endure for ever, And his throne as the sun before me.

37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, And as the faithful witness in the sky. Selah

38 But thou hast cast off and rejected, Thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.

39 Thou hast abhorred the covenant of thy servant: Thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.

40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; Thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.

41 All that pass by the way rob him: He is become a reproach to his neighbors.

42 Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries; Thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.

43 Yea, thou turnest back the edge of his sword, And hast not made him to stand in the battle.

44 Thou hast made his brightness to cease, And cast his throne down to the ground.

45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: Thou hast covered him with shame. Selah

46 How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? How long shall thy wrath burn like fire?

47 Oh remember how short my time is: For what vanity hast thou created all the children of men!

48 What man is he that shall live and not see death, That shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah

49 Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, Which thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness?

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; How I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty peoples,

51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Jehovah, Wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

52 Blessed be Jehovah for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

Amplified

Psalm 82

1 GOD STANDS in the assembly [of the representatives] of God; in the midst of the magistrates {or} judges He gives judgment [as] among the gods.

2 How long will you [magistrates or judges] judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

3 Do justice to the weak (poor) and fatherless; maintain the rights of the afflicted and needy.

4 Deliver the poor and needy; rescue them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 [The magistrates and judges] know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in the darkness [of complacent satisfaction]; all the foundations of the earth [the fundamental principles upon which rests the administration of justice] are shaking.

6 I said, You are gods [since you judge on My behalf, as My representatives]; indeed, all of you are children of the Most High.

7 But you shall die as men and fall as one of the princes.

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth! For to You belong all the nations.

Psalm 83

1 KEEP NOT silence, O God; hold not Your peace or be still, O God.

2 For, behold, Your enemies are in tumult, and those who hate You have raised their heads.

3 They lay crafty schemes against Your people and consult together against Your hidden {and} precious ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be in remembrance no more.

5 For they have consulted together with one accord {and} one heart; against You they make a covenant--

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites,

7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre.

8 Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot [the Ammonites and the Moabites] {and} have been an arm to them. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

9 Do to them as [You did to] the Midianites, as to Sisera and Jabin at the brook of Kishon,

10 Who perished at Endor, who became like manure for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, yes, all their princes as Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 Who say, Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God.

13 O my God, make them like whirling dust, like stubble {or} chaff before the wind!

14 As fire consumes the forest, and as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,

15 So pursue {and} afflict them with Your tempest and terrify them with Your tornado {or} hurricane.

16 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek, inquire for, {and} insistently require Your name, O Lord.

17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever; yes, let them be put to shame and perish,

18 That they may know that You, Whose name alone is the Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 HOW LOVELY are Your tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!

2 My soul yearns, yes, even pines {and} is homesick for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out {and} sing for joy to the living God.

3 Yes, the sparrow has found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young--even Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

4 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those who dwell in Your house {and} Your presence; they will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

5 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

6 Passing through the Valley of Weeping (Baca), they make it a place of springs; the early rain also fills [the pools] with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength [increasing in victorious power]; each of them appears before God in Zion.

8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

9 Behold our shield [the king as Your agent], O God, and look upon the face of Your anointed!

10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [anywhere else]; I would rather be a doorkeeper {and} stand at the threshold in the house of my God than to dwell [at ease] in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace {and} favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O Lord of hosts, blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, and that without fear or misgiving]!

Psalm 85

1 LORD, YOU have [at last] been favorable {and} have dealt graciously with Your land [of Canaan]; You have brought back [from Babylon] the captives of Jacob.

2 You have forgiven {and} taken away the iniquity of Your people, You have covered all their sin. Selah [pause, and calmly realize what that means]!

3 You have withdrawn all Your wrath {and} indignation, You have turned away from the blazing anger [which You had let loose].

4 Restore us, O God of our salvation, and cause Your anger toward us to cease [forever].

5 Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger [and disfavor] {and} spread it out to all generations?

6 Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?

7 Show us Your mercy {and} loving-kindness, O Lord, and grant us Your salvation.

8 I will listen [with expectancy] to what God the Lord will say, for He will speak peace to His people, to His saints (those who are in right standing with Him)--but let them not turn again to [self-confident] folly.

9 Surely His salvation is near to those who reverently {and} worshipfully fear Him, [and is ready to be appropriated] that [the manifest presence of God, His] glory may tabernacle {and} abide in our land.

10 Mercy {and} loving-kindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth shall spring up from the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

12 Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.

13 Righteousness shall go before Him and shall make His footsteps a way in which to walk.

Psalm 86

1 INCLINE YOUR ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor {and} distressed, needy {and} desiring.

2 Preserve my life, for I am godly {and} dedicated; O my God, save Your servant, for I trust in You [leaning and believing on You, committing all and confidently looking to You, without fear or doubt].

3 Be merciful {and} gracious to me, O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day.

4 Make me, Your servant, to rejoice, O Lord, for to You do I lift myself up.

5 For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our trespasses, sending them away, letting them go completely and forever]; and You are abundant in mercy {and} loving-kindness to all those who call upon You.

6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; and listen to the cry of my supplications.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call on You, for You will answer me.

8 There is none like unto You among the gods, O Lord, neither are their works like unto Yours.

9 All nations whom You have made shall come and fall down before You, O Lord; and they shall glorify Your name.

10 For You are great and work wonders! You alone are God.

11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, that I may walk {and} live in Your truth; direct {and} unite my heart [solely, reverently] to fear {and} honor Your name.

12 I will confess {and} praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole (united) heart; and I will glorify Your name forevermore.

13 For great is Your mercy {and} loving-kindness toward me; and You have delivered me from the depths of Sheol [from the exceeding depths of affliction].

14 O God, the proud {and} insolent are risen against me; a rabble of violent {and} ruthless men has sought {and} demanded my life, and they have not set You before them.

15 But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in mercy {and} loving-kindness and truth.

16 O turn to me and have mercy {and} be gracious to me; grant strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) to Your servant and save the son of Your handmaiden.

17 Show me a sign of [Your evident] goodwill {and} favor, that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because You, Lord, [will show Your approval of me when You] help and comfort me.

Psalm 87

1 ON THE holy hills stands the city [of Jerusalem and the temple] God founded.

2 The Lord loves the gates of Zion [through which the crowds of pilgrims enter from all nations] more than all the dwellings of Jacob (Israel).

3 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah [pause, and calmly realize what that means]!

4 I will make mention of Rahab [the poetic name for Egypt] and Babylon as among those who know [the city of God]--behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia (Cush)--[saying], This man was born there.

5 Yes, of Zion it shall be said, This man and that man were born in her, for the Most High Himself will establish her.

6 The Lord shall count, when He registers the peoples, that this man was born there. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

7 The singers as well as the players on instruments shall say, All my springs (my sources of life and joy) are in you [city of our God].

Psalm 88

1 O LORD, the God of my salvation, I have cried to You for help by day; at night I am in Your presence.

2 Let my prayer come before You {and} really enter into Your presence; incline Your ear to my cry!

3 For I am full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol (the place of the dead).

4 I am counted among those who go down into the pit (the grave); I am like a man who has no help {or} strength [a mere shadow],

5 Cast away among the dead, like the slain that lie in a [nameless] grave, whom You [seriously] remember no more, and they are cut off from Your hand.

6 You have laid me in the depths of the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

7 Your wrath lies hard upon me, and You have afflicted me with all Your waves. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

8 You have put my [familiar] friends far from me; You have made me an abomination to them. I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

9 My eye grows dim because of sorrow {and} affliction. Lord, I have called daily on You; I have spread forth my hands to You.

10 Will You show wonders to the dead? Shall the departed arise and praise You? Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

11 Shall Your steadfast love be declared in the grave? Or Your faithfulness in Abaddon (Sheol, as a place of ruin and destruction)?

12 Shall Your wonders be known in the dark? And Your righteousness in the place of forgetfulness [where the dead forget and are forgotten]?

13 But to You I cry, O Lord; and in the morning shall my prayer come to meet You.

14 Lord, why do You cast me off? Why do You hide Your face from me?

15 I was afflicted and close to death from my youth up; while I suffer Your terrors I am distracted [I faint].

16 Your fierce wrath has swept over me; Your terrors have destroyed me.

17 They surround me like a flood all day long; together they have closed in upon me.

18 Lover and friend have You put far from me; my familiar friends are darkness {and} the grave.

Psalm 89

1 I WILL sing of the mercy {and} loving-kindness of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness from generation to generation.

2 For I have said, Mercy {and} loving-kindness shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness will You establish in the very heavens [unchangeable and perpetual].

3 [You have said] I have made a covenant with My chosen one, I have sworn to David My servant,

4 Your Seed I will establish forever, and I will build up your throne for all generations. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

5 Let heaven (the angels) praise Your wonders, O Lord, Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones (the holy angels).

6 For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord? Who among the mighty [heavenly beings] can be likened to the Lord,

7 A God greatly feared {and} revered in the council of the holy (angelic) ones, and to be feared {and} worshipfully revered above all those who are round about Him?

8 O Lord God of hosts, who is a mighty one like unto You, O Lord? And Your faithfulness is round about You [an essential part of You at all times].

9 You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves arise, You still them.

10 You have broken Rahab (Egypt) in pieces; with Your mighty arm You have scattered Your enemies.

11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; the world and all that is in it, You have founded them.

12 The north and the south, You have created them; Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon joyously praise Your name.

13 You have a mighty arm; strong is Your hand, Your right hand is soaring high.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy {and} loving-kindness and truth go before Your face.

15 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the people who know the joyful sound [who understand and appreciate the spiritual blessings symbolized by the feasts]; they walk, O Lord, in the light {and} favor of Your countenance!

16 In Your name they rejoice all the day, and in Your righteousness they are exalted.

17 For You are the glory of their strength [their proud adornment], and by Your favor our horn is exalted {and} we walk with uplifted faces!

18 For our shield belongs to the Lord, and our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Once You spoke in a vision to Your devoted ones and said, I have endowed one who is mighty [a hero, giving him the power to help--to be a champion for Israel]; I have exalted one chosen from among the people.

20 I have found David My servant; with My holy oil have I anointed him,

21 With whom My hand shall be established {and} ever abide; My arm also shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not exact from him {or} do him violence {or} outwit him, nor shall the wicked afflict {and} humble him.

23 I will beat down his foes before his face and smite those who hate him.

24 My faithfulness and My mercy {and} loving-kindness shall be with him, and in My name shall his horn be exalted [great power and prosperity shall be conferred upon him].

25 I will set his hand in control also on the [Mediterranean] Sea, and his right hand on the rivers [Euphrates with its tributaries].

26 He shall cry to Me, You are my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation!

27 Also I will make him the firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.

28 My mercy {and} loving-kindness will I keep for him forevermore, and My covenant shall stand fast {and} be faithful with him.

29 His Offspring also will I make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake My law and walk not in My ordinances,

31 If they break {or} profane My statutes and keep not My commandments,

32 Then will I punish their transgression with the rod [of chastisement], and their iniquity with stripes.

33 Nevertheless, My loving-kindness will I not break off from him, nor allow My faithfulness to fail [to lie and be false to him].

34 My covenant will I not break {or} profane, nor alter the thing that is gone out of My lips.

35 Once [for all] have I sworn by My holiness, which cannot be violated; I will not lie to David:

36 His Offspring shall endure forever, and his throne [shall continue] as the sun before Me.

37 It shall be established forever as the moon, the faithful witness in the heavens. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

38 But [in apparent contradiction to all this] You [even You the faithful Lord] have cast off and rejected; You have been full of wrath against Your anointed.

39 You have despised {and} loathed and renounced the covenant with Your servant; You have profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.

40 You have broken down all his hedges {and} his walls; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.

41 All who pass along the road spoil {and} rob him; he has become the scorn {and} reproach of his neighbors.

42 You have exalted the right hand of his foes; You have made all his enemies rejoice.

43 Moreover, You have turned back the edge of his sword and have not made him to stand in battle.

44 You have made his glory {and} splendor to cease and have hurled to the ground his throne.

45 The days of his youth have You shortened; You have covered him with shame. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

46 How long, O Lord? Will You hide Yourself forever? How long shall Your wrath burn like fire?

47 O [earnestly] remember how short my time is {and} what a mere fleeting life mine is. For what emptiness, falsity, futility, {and} frailty You have created all men!

48 What man can live and shall not see death, or can deliver himself from the [powerful] hand of Sheol (the place of the dead)? Selah [pause, and calmly consider that]!

49 Lord, where are Your former loving-kindnesses [shown in the reigns of David and Solomon], which You swore to David in Your faithfulness?

50 Remember, Lord, {and} earnestly imprint [on Your heart] the reproach of Your servants, scorned {and} insulted, how I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the many {and} mighty peoples,

51 With which Your enemies have taunted, O Lord, with which they have mocked the footsteps of Your anointed.

52 Blessed be the Lord forevermore! Amen and Amen.

Basic Bible

Psalm 82

1 God is in the meeting-place of God; he is judging among the gods.

2 How long will you go on judging falsely, having respect for the persons of evil-doers? (Selah.)

3 Give ear to the cause of the poor and the children without fathers; let those who are troubled and in need have their rights.

4 Be the saviour of the poor and those who have nothing: take them out of the hand of the evil-doers.

5 They have no knowledge or sense; they go about in the dark: all the bases of the earth are moved.

6 I said, You are gods; all of you are the sons of the Most High:

7 But you will come to death like men, falling like one of the rulers of the earth.

8 Up! O God, come as judge of the earth; for all the nations are your heritage.

Psalm 83

1 O God, do not keep quiet: let your lips be open and take no rest, O God.

2 For see! those who make war on you are out of control; your haters are lifting up their heads.

3 They have made wise designs against your people, talking together against those whom you keep in a secret place.

4 They have said, Come, let us put an end to them as a nation; so that the name of Israel may go out of man's memory.

5 For they have all come to an agreement; they are all joined together against you:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagarites;

7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek; the Philistines and the people of Tyre;

8 Assur is joined with them; they have become the support of the children of Lot. (Selah.)

9 Do to them what you did to the Midianites; what you did to Sisera and Jabin, at the stream of Kishon:

10 Who came to destruction at En-dor; their bodies became dust and waste.

11 Make their chiefs like Oreb and Zeeb; and all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna:

12 Who have said, Let us take for our heritage the resting-place of God.

13 O my God, make them like the rolling dust; like dry stems before the wind.

14 As fire burning a wood, and as a flame causing fire on the mountains,

15 So go after them with your strong wind, and let them be full of fear because of your storm.

16 Let their faces be full of shame; so that they may give honour to your name, O Lord.

17 Let them be overcome and troubled for ever; let them be put to shame and come to destruction;

18 So that men may see that you only, whose name is Yahweh, are Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 How dear are your tents, O Lord of armies!

2 The passion of my soul's desire is for the house of the Lord; my heart and my flesh are crying out for the living God.

3 The little birds have places for themselves, where they may put their young, even your altars, O Lord of armies, my King and my God.

4 Happy are they whose resting-place is in your house: they will still be praising you. (Selah.)

5 Happy is the man whose strength is in you; in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

6 Going through the valley of balsam-trees, they make it a place of springs; it is clothed with blessings by the early rain.

7 They go from strength to strength; every one of them comes before God in Zion.

8 O Lord God of armies, let my prayer come to you: give ear, O God of Jacob. (Selah.)

9 O God, let your eyes be on him who is our safe cover, and let your heart be turned to your king.

10 For a day in your house is better than a thousand. It is better to be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to be living in the tents of sin.

11 The Lord God is our sun and our strength: the Lord will give grace and glory: he will not keep back any good thing from those whose ways are upright.

12 O Lord of armies, happy is the man whose hope is in you.

Psalm 85

1 Lord, you were good to your land: changing the fate of Jacob.

2 The wrongdoing of your people had forgiveness; all their sin had been covered. (Selah.)

3 You were no longer angry: you were turned from the heat of your wrath.

4 Come back to us, O God of our salvation, and be angry with us no longer.

5 Will you go on being angry with us for ever? will you keep your wrath against us through all the long generations?

6 Will you not give us life again, so that your people may be glad in you?

7 Let us see your mercy, O Lord, and give us your salvation.

8 I will give ear to the voice of the Lord; for he will say words of peace to his people and to his saints; but let them not go back to their foolish ways.

9 Truly, his salvation is near to his worshippers; so that glory may be in our land.

10 Mercy and faith have come together; righteousness and peace have given one another a kiss.

11 Faith comes up from the earth like a plant; righteousness is looking down from heaven.

12 The Lord will give what is good; and our land will give its increase.

13 Righteousness will go before him, making a way for his footsteps.

Psalm 86

1 Let your ears be open to my voice, O Lord, and give me an answer; for I am poor and in need.

2 Keep my soul, for I am true to you; O my God, give salvation to your servant, whose hope is in you.

3 Have mercy on me, O Lord; for my cry goes up to you all the day.

4 Make glad the soul of your servant; for it is lifted up to you, O Lord.

5 You are good, O Lord, and full of forgiveness; your mercy is great to all who make their cry to you.

6 O Lord, give ear to my prayer; and take note of the sound of my requests.

7 In the day of my trouble I send up my cry to you; for you will give me an answer.

8 There is no god like you, O Lord; there are no works like your works.

9 Let all the nations whom you have made come and give worship to you, O Lord, giving glory to your name.

10 For you are great, and do great works of wonder; you only are God.

11 Make your way clear to me, O Lord; I will go on my way in your faith: let my heart be glad in the fear of your name.

12 I will give you praise, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will give glory to your name for ever.

13 For your mercy to me is great; you have taken my soul up from the deep places of the underworld.

14 O God, men of pride have come up against me, and the army of violent men would take my life; they have not put you before them.

15 But you, O Lord, are a God full of pity and forgiveness, slow to get angry, great in mercy and wisdom.

16 O be turned to me and have mercy on me: give your strength to your servant, and your salvation to the son of her who is your servant.

17 Give me a sign for good; so that my haters may see it and be shamed; because you, Lord, have been my help and comfort.

Psalm 87

1 This house is resting on the holy mountain.

2 The Lord has more love for the doors of Zion than for all the tents of Jacob.

3 Noble things are said of you, O town of God. (Selah.)

4 Rahab and Babylon will be named among those who have knowledge of me; see, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man had his birth there.

5 And of Zion it will be said, This or that man had his birth there; and the Most High will make her strong.

6 The Lord will keep in mind, when he is writing the records of the people, that this man had his birth there. (Selah.)

7 The players on instruments will be there, and the dancers will say, All my springs are in you.

Psalm 88

1

2 Let my prayer come before you; give ear to my cry:

3 For my soul is full of evils, and my life has come near to the underworld.

4 I am numbered among those who go down into the earth; I have become like a man for whom there is no help:

5 My soul is among the dead, like those in the underworld, to whom you give no more thought; for they are cut off from your care.

6 You have put me in the lowest deep, even in dark places.

7 The weight of your wrath is crushing me, all your waves have overcome me. (Selah.)

8 You have sent my friends far away from me; you have made me a disgusting thing in their eyes: I am shut up, and not able to come out.

9 My eyes are wasting away because of my trouble: Lord, my cry has gone up to you every day, my hands are stretched out to you.

10 Will you do works of wonder for the dead? will the shades come back to give you praise? (Selah.)

11 Will the story of your mercy be given in the house of the dead? will news of your faith come to the place of destruction?

12 May there be knowledge of your wonders in the dark? or of your righteousness where memory is dead?

13 But to you did I send up my cry, O Lord; in the morning my prayer came before you.

14 Lord, why have you sent away my soul? why is your face covered from me?

15 I have been troubled and in fear of death from the time when I was young; your wrath is hard on me, and I have no strength.

16 The heat of your wrath has gone over me; I am broken by your cruel punishments.

17 They are round me all the day like water; they have made a circle about me.

18 You have sent my friends and lovers far from me; I am gone from the memory of those who are dear to me.

Psalm 89

1 My song will be of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make his faith clear to all generations.

2 For you have said, Mercy will be made strong for ever; my faith will be unchanging in the heavens.

3 I have made an agreement with the man of my selection, I have made an oath to David my servant;

4 I will make your seed go on for ever, your kingdom will be strong through all generations. (Selah.)

5 In heaven let them give praise for your wonders, O Lord; and your unchanging faith among the saints.

6 For who is there in the heavens in comparison with the Lord? who is like the Lord among the sons of the gods?

7 God is greatly to be feared among the saints, and to be honoured over all those who are about him.

8 O Lord God of armies, who is strong like you, O Jah? and your unchanging faith is round about you.

9 You have rule over the sea in storm; when its waves are troubled, you make them calm.

10 Rahab was crushed by you like one wounded to death; with your strong arm you put to flight all your haters.

11 Yours are the heavens, and the earth is yours; you have made the world, and everything which is in it.

12 You have made the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon are sounding with joy at your name.

13 Yours is an arm of power; strong is your hand and high your right hand.

14 The seat of your kingdom is resting on righteousness and right judging: mercy and good faith come before your face.

15 Happy are the people who have knowledge of the holy cry: the light of your face, O Lord, will be shining on their way.

16 In your name will they have joy all the day: in your righteousness will they be lifted up.

17 For you are the glory of their strength; in your pleasure will our horn be lifted up.

18 For our breastplate is the Lord; and our king is the Holy One of Israel's.

19 Then your voice came to your holy one in a vision, saying, I have put the crown on a strong one, lifting up one taken from among the people.

20 I have made discovery of David my servant; I have put my holy oil on his head.

21 My hand will be his support; my arm will give him strength.

22 The deceit of those who are against him will not overcome him; he will not be troubled by the sons of evil.

23 I will have those who are against him broken before his face, and his haters will be crushed under my blows.

24 But my faith and my mercy will be with him; and in my name will his horn be lifted up.

25 I will put his hand in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

26 He will say to me, You are my father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.

27 And I will make him the first of my sons, most high over the kings of the earth.

28 I will keep my mercy for him for ever; my agreement with him will not be changed.

29 His seed will keep their place for ever; his kingdom will be eternal, like the heavens.

30 If his children give up my law, and are not ruled by my decisions;

31 If my rules are broken, and my orders are not kept;

32 Then I will send punishment on them for their sin; my rod will be the reward of their evil-doing.

33 But I will not take away my mercy from him, and will not be false to my faith.

34 I will be true to my agreement; the things which have gone out of my lips will not be changed.

35 I have made an oath once by my holy name, that I will not be false to David.

36 His seed will not come to an end for ever; the seat of his kingdom will be like the sun before me.

37 It will be fixed for ever like the moon; and the witness in heaven is true. (Selah.)

38 But you have put him away in disgust; you have been angry with the king of your selection.

39 You have made your agreement with your servant of no effect: you have had no respect for his crown, it has come down even to the earth.

40 All his walls are broken down; you have given his strong towers to destruction.

41 All those who come by take away his goods; he is laughed at by his neighbours.

42 You have given power to the right hand of his haters; you have made glad all those who are against him.

43 His sword is turned back; you have not been his support in the fight.

44 You have put an end to his glory: the seat of his kingdom has been levelled to the earth.

45 You have made him old before his time; he is covered with shame. (Selah.)

46 How long, O Lord, will you Keep yourself for ever from our eyes? how long will your wrath be burning like fire?

47 See how short my time is; why have you made all men for no purpose?

48 What man now living will not see death? will he be able to keep back his soul from the underworld? (Selah.)

49 Lord, where are your earlier mercies? where is the oath which you made to David in unchanging faith?

50 Keep in mind, O Lord, the shame of your servants, and how the bitter words of all the people have come into my heart;

51 The bitter words of your haters, O Lord, shaming the footsteps of your king.

52 Let the Lord be praised for ever. So be it, So be it.

Darby

Psalm 82

1 {A Psalm of Asaph.} God standeth in the assembly of "God, he judgeth among the gods.

2 How long will ye judge unrighteously, and accept the person of the wicked? Selah.

3 Judge the poor and the fatherless, do justice to the afflicted and the destitute;

4 Rescue the poor and needy, deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They know not, neither do they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are moved.

6 I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High;

7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for *thou* shalt inherit all the nations.

Psalm 83

1 {A Song; a Psalm of Asaph.} O God, keep not silence; hold not thy peace, and be not still, O "God:

2 For behold, thine enemies make a tumult; and they that hate thee lift up the head.

3 They take crafty counsel against thy people, and consult against thy hidden ones:

4 They say, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, and let the name of Israel be mentioned no more.

5 For they have consulted together with one heart: they have made an alliance together against thee.

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarites;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia, with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Asshur also is joined with them: they are an arm to the sons of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as to Midian; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the torrent of Kishon:

10 Who were destroyed at Endor; they became as dung for the ground.

11 Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb; and all their chiefs as Zebah and as Zalmunna.

12 For they have said, Let us take to ourselves God's dwelling-places in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a whirling thing, like stubble before the wind.

14 As fire burneth a forest, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with thy tempest, and terrify them with thy whirlwind.

16 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O Jehovah.

17 Let them be put to shame and be dismayed for ever, and let them be confounded and perish:

18 That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, art the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 {To the chief Musician. Upon the Gittith. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.} How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Jehovah of hosts!

2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Jehovah; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living "God.

3 Yea, the sparrow hath found a house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she layeth her young, thine altars, O Jehovah of hosts, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be constantly praising thee. Selah.

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee, -- they, in whose heart are the highways.

6 Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a well-spring; yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength: [each one] will appear before God in Zion.

8 Jehovah, God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.

10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For Jehovah Elohim is a sun and shield: Jehovah will give grace and glory; no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

12 Jehovah of hosts, blessed is the man that confideth in thee!

Psalm 85

1 {To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.} Thou hast been favourable, Jehovah, unto thy land; thou hast turned the captivity of Jacob:

2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people; thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3 Thou hast withdrawn all thy wrath; thou hast turned from the fierceness of thine anger.

4 Bring us back, O God of our salvation, and cause thine indignation toward us to cease.

5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger from generation to generation?

6 Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7 Shew us thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, and grant us thy salvation.

8 I will hear what "God, Jehovah, will speak; for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his godly ones: but let them not turn again to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Loving-kindness and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other:

11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from the heavens.

12 Jehovah also will give what is good, and our land shall yield its increase.

13 Righteousness shall go before him, and shall set his footsteps on the way.

Psalm 86

1 {A Prayer of David.} Incline thine ear, Jehovah, answer me; for I am afflicted and needy.

2 Keep my soul, for I am godly; O thou my God, save thy servant who confideth in thee.

3 Be gracious unto me, O Lord; for unto thee do I call all the day.

4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant; for unto thee, Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive, and art of great loving-kindness unto all that call upon thee.

6 Give ear, O Jehovah, unto my prayer, and attend to the voice of my supplications.

7 In the day of my distress I will call upon thee, for thou wilt answer me.

8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, Lord, and there is nothing like unto thy works.

9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify thy name.

10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God, thou alone.

11 Teach me thy way, Jehovah; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart; and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

13 For great is thy loving-kindness toward me, and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assembly of the violent seek after my soul, and they have not set thee before them.

15 But thou, Lord, art a "God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in goodness and truth.

16 Turn toward me, and be gracious unto me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

17 Shew me a token for good, that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed; for thou, Jehovah, hast helped me and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 {Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm. A Song.} His foundation is in the mountains of holiness.

2 Jehovah loveth the gates of Zion more than all the habitations of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon among them that know me; behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia: this [man] was born there.

5 And of Zion it shall be said, This one and that one was born in her; and the Most High himself shall establish her.

6 Jehovah will count, when he inscribeth the peoples, This [man] was born there. Selah.

7 As well the singers as the dancers [shall say], All my springs are in thee.

Psalm 88

1 {A Song, a Psalm for the sons of Korah. To the chief Musician. Upon Mahalath Leannoth. An instruction. Of Heman the Ezrahite.} Jehovah, God of my salvation, I have cried by day [and] in the night before thee.

2 Let my prayer come before thee; incline thine ear unto my cry.

3 For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draweth nigh to Sheol.

4 I am reckoned with them that go down into the pit; I am as a man that hath no strength:

5 Prostrate among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave; whom thou rememberest no more, and who are cut off from thy hand.

6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in dark places, in the deeps.

7 Thy fury lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted [me] with all thy waves. Selah.

8 Thou hast put my familiar friends far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

9 Mine eye consumeth by reason of affliction. Upon thee, Jehovah, have I called every day; I have stretched out my hands unto thee.

10 Wilt thou do wonders to the dead? shall the shades arise and praise thee? Selah.

11 Shall thy loving-kindness be declared in the grave? thy faithfulness in Destruction?

12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But as for me, Jehovah, I cry unto thee, and in the morning my prayer cometh before thee.

14 Why, O Jehovah, castest thou off my soul? [why] hidest thou thy face from me?

15 I am afflicted and expiring from my youth up; I suffer thy terrors, [and] I am distracted.

16 Thy fierce anger hath gone over me; thy terrors have brought me to nought:

17 They have surrounded me all the day like water; they have compassed me about together.

18 Lover and associate hast thou put far from me: my familiar friends are darkness.

Psalm 89

1 {An instruction. Of Ethan the Ezrahite.} I will sing of the loving-kindness of Jehovah for ever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness from generation to generation.

2 For I said, Loving-kindness shall be built up for ever; in the very heavens wilt thou establish thy faithfulness.

3 I have made a covenant with mine elect, I have sworn unto David my servant:

4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne from generation to generation. Selah.

5 And the heavens shall celebrate thy wonders, O Jehovah, and thy faithfulness in the congregation of the saints.

6 For who in the heaven can be compared to Jehovah? [who] among the sons of the mighty shall be likened to Jehovah?

7 "God is greatly to be feared in the council of the saints, and terrible for all that are round about him.

8 Jehovah, God of hosts, who is like unto thee, the strong Jah? And thy faithfulness is round about thee.

9 *Thou* rulest the pride of the sea: when its waves arise, *thou* stillest them.

10 Thou hast crushed Rahab as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with the arm of thy strength.

11 Thine are the heavens, the earth also is thine; the world and its fulness, *thou* hast founded them.

12 The north and the south, *thou* hast created them: Tabor and Hermon triumph in thy name.

13 Thine is the arm of might: strong is thy hand, high is thy right hand.

14 Righteousness and judgment are the foundation of thy throne; loving-kindness and truth go before thy face.

15 Blessed is the people that know the shout of joy: they walk, O Jehovah, in the light of thy countenance.

16 In thy name are they joyful all the day, and in thy righteousness are they exalted.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength; and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.

18 For Jehovah is our shield, and the Holy One of Israel, our king.

19 Then thou spakest in vision of thy Holy One, and saidst, I have laid help upon a mighty one; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:

21 With whom my hand shall be established; and mine arm shall strengthen him.

22 No enemy shall exact upon him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him;

23 But I will beat down his adversaries before his face, and will smite them that hate him.

24 And my faithfulness and my loving-kindness shall be with him, and by my name shall his horn be exalted.

25 And I will set his hand in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

26 *He* shall call unto me, Thou art my father, my "God, and the rock of my salvation;

27 And as to me, I will make him firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.

28 My loving-kindness will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him;

29 And I will establish his seed for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his sons forsake my law, and walk not in mine ordinances;

31 If they profane my statutes, and keep not my commandments:

32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

33 Nevertheless my loving-kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor belie my faithfulness;

34 My covenant will I not profane, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness; I will not lie unto David:

36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me;

37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and the witness in the sky is firm. Selah.

38 But thou hast rejected and cast off; thou hast been very wroth with thine anointed:

39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant; thou hast profaned his crown to the ground:

40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.

41 All that pass by the way plunder him; he is become a reproach to his neighbours.

42 Thou hast exalted the right hand of his oppressors; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice:

43 Yea, thou hast turned back the edge of his sword, and hast not made him stand in the battle.

44 Thou hast made his brightness to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground;

45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened; thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.

46 How long, Jehovah, wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy fury burn like fire?

47 Remember, as regards me, what life is. Wherefore hast thou created all the children of men to be vanity?

48 What man liveth, and shall not see death? Shall he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.

49 Where, Lord, are thy former loving-kindnesses, [which] thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness?

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants -- that I bear in my bosom [that of] all the mighty peoples --

51 Wherewith thine enemies, O Jehovah, have reproached, wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

52 Blessed be Jehovah for evermore! Amen, and Amen.

King James Version

Psalm 82

1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Psalm 83

1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.

2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!

2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.

6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.

7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.

10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

Psalm 85

1 Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?

6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.

13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.

Psalm 86

1 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.

4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.

10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.

13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

17 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.

5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

6 The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.

Psalm 88

1 O lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:

2 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;

3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.

4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:

5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.

6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.

8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.

10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.

11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?

12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.

14 LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?

15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.

16 Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.

17 They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.

18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.

Psalm 89

1 I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.

2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.

3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,

4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.

5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.

6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?

7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.

10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

12 The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.

13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.

16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.

18 For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.

19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:

21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.

24 But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

27 Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.

28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.

29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;

31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.

36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.

37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.

39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.

40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.

41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours.

42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.

43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.

44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.

45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.

46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?

47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?

48 What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.

49 Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, which thou swarest unto David in thy truth?

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people;

51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

52 Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

NASB 1977

Psalm 82

1 God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers.

2 How long will you judge unjustly, And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.

3 Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

4 Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver {them} out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They do not know nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, "You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High.

7 "Nevertheless you will die like men, And fall like {any} one of the princes."

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is Thou who dost possess all the nations.

Psalm 83

1 O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.

2 For, behold, Thine enemies make an uproar; And those who hate Thee have exalted themselves.

3 They make shrewd plans against Thy people, And conspire together against Thy treasured ones.

4 They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more."

5 For they have conspired together with one mind; Against Thee do they make a covenant:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera {and} Jabin, at the torrent of Kishon,

10 Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who became as dung for the ground.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 Who said, "Let us possess for ourselves The pastures of God."

13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust; Like chaff before the wind.

14 Like fire that burns the forest, And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with Thy tempest, And terrify them with Thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Thy name, O LORD.

17 Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever; And let them be humiliated and perish,

18 That they may know that Thou alone, whose name is the LORD, Art the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 How lovely are Thy dwelling places, O LORD of hosts!

2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

3 The bird also has found a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even Thine altars, O LORD of hosts, My King and my God.

4 How blessed are those who dwell in Thy house! They are ever praising Thee. Selah.

5 How blessed is the man whose strength is in Thee; In whose heart are the highways {to Zion!}

6 Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring, The early rain also covers it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength, {Every one of them} appears before God in Zion.

8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah.

9 Behold our shield, O God, And look upon the face of Thine anointed.

10 For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand {outside.} I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God, Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O LORD of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in Thee!

Psalm 85

1 O Lord, Thou didst show favor to Thy land; Thou didst restore the captivity of Jacob.

2 Thou didst forgive the iniquity of Thy people; Thou didst cover all their sin. Selah.

3 Thou didst withdraw all Thy fury; Thou didst turn away from Thy burning anger.

4 Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Thine indignation toward us to cease.

5 Wilt Thou be angry with us forever? Wilt Thou prolong Thine anger to all generations?

6 Wilt Thou not Thyself revive us again, That Thy people may rejoice in Thee?

7 Show us Thy lovingkindness, O LORD, And grant us Thy salvation.

8 I will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not turn back to folly.

9 Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.

10 Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth springs from the earth; And righteousness looks down from heaven.

12 Indeed, the LORD will give what is good; And our land will yield its produce.

13 Righteousness will go before Him, And will make His footsteps into a way.

Psalm 86

1 Incline Thine ear, O LORD, {and} answer me; For I am afflicted and needy.

2 Do preserve my soul, for I am a godly man; O Thou my God, save Thy servant who trusts in Thee.

3 Be gracious to me, O Lord, For to Thee I cry all day long.

4 Make glad the soul of Thy servant, For to Thee, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5 For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon Thee.

6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; And give heed to the voice of my supplications!

7 In the day of my trouble I shall call upon Thee, For Thou wilt answer me.

8 There is no one like Thee among the gods, O Lord; Nor are there any works like Thine.

9 All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before Thee, O Lord; And they shall glorify Thy name.

10 For Thou art great and doest wondrous deeds; Thou alone art God.

11 Teach me Thy way, O LORD; I will walk in Thy truth; Unite my heart to fear Thy name.

12 I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Thy name forever.

13 For Thy lovingkindness toward me is great, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14 O God, arrogant men have risen up against me, And a band of violent men have sought my life, And they have not set Thee before them.

15 But Thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

16 Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Oh grant Thy strength to Thy servant, And save the son of Thy handmaid.

17 Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see {it}, and be ashamed, Because Thou, O LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.

2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion More than all the {other} dwelling places of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah.

4 "I shall mention Rahab and Babylon among those who know Me; Behold, Philistia and Tyre with Ethiopia: `This one was born there.'"

5 But of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; And the Most High Himself will establish her.

6 The LORD shall count when He registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah.

7 Then those who sing as well as those who play the flutes {shall say}, "All my springs {of joy} are in you."

Psalm 88

1 O Lord, the God of my salvation, I have cried out by day and in the night before Thee.

2 Let my prayer come before Thee; Incline Thine ear to my cry!

3 For my soul has had enough troubles, And my life has drawn near to Sheol.

4 I am reckoned among those who go down to the pit; I have become like a man without strength,

5 Forsaken among the dead, Like the slain who lie in the grave, Whom Thou dost remember no more, And they are cut off from Thy hand.

6 Thou hast put me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in the depths.

7 Thy wrath has rested upon me, And Thou hast afflicted me with all Thy waves. Selah.

8 Thou hast removed my acquaintances far from me; Thou hast made me an object of loathing to them; I am shut up and cannot go out.

9 My eye has wasted away because of affliction; I have called upon Thee every day, O LORD; I have spread out my hands to Thee.

10 Wilt Thou perform wonders for the dead? Will the departed spirits rise {and} praise Thee? Selah.

11 Will Thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave, Thy faithfulness in Abaddon?

12 Will Thy wonders be made known in the darkness? And Thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But I, O LORD, have cried out to Thee for help, And in the morning my prayer comes before Thee.

14 O LORD, why dost Thou reject my soul? {Why} dost Thou hide Thy face from me?

15 I was afflicted and about to die from my youth on; I suffer Thy terrors; I am overcome.

16 Thy burning anger has passed over me; Thy terrors have destroyed me.

17 They have surrounded me like water all day long; They have encompassed me altogether.

18 Thou hast removed lover and friend far from me; My acquaintances are {in} darkness.

Psalm 89

1 I Will sing of the lovingkindness of the LORD forever; To all generations I will make known Thy faithfulness with my mouth.

2 For I have said, "Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heavens Thou wilt establish Thy faithfulness."

3 "I have made a covenant with My chosen; I have sworn to David My servant,

4 I will establish your seed forever, And build up your throne to all generations." Selah.

5 And the heavens will praise Thy wonders, O LORD; Thy faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.

6 For who in the skies is comparable to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the LORD,

7 A God greatly feared in the council of the holy ones, And awesome above all those who are around Him?

8 O LORD God of hosts, who is like Thee, O mighty LORD? Thy faithfulness also surrounds Thee.

9 Thou dost rule the swelling of the sea; When its waves rise, Thou dost still them.

10 Thou Thyself didst crush Rahab like one who is slain; Thou didst scatter Thine enemies with Thy mighty arm.

11 The heavens are Thine, the earth also is Thine; The world and all it contains, Thou hast founded them.

12 The north and the south, Thou hast created them; Tabor and Hermon shout for joy at Thy name.

13 Thou hast a strong arm; Thy hand is mighty, Thy right hand is exalted.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Thy throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before Thee.

15 How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O LORD, they walk in the light of Thy countenance.

16 In Thy name they rejoice all the day, And by Thy righteousness they are exalted.

17 For Thou art the glory of their strength, And by Thy favor our horn is exalted.

18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Once Thou didst speak in vision to Thy godly ones, And didst say, "I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people.

20 "I have found David My servant; With My holy oil I have anointed him,

21 With whom My hand will be established; My arm also will strengthen him.

22 "The enemy will not deceive him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

23 "But I shall crush his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him.

24 "And My faithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with him, And in My name his horn will be exalted.

25 "I shall also set his hand on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.

26 "He will cry to Me, `Thou art my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.'

27 "I also shall make him {My} first-born, The highest of the kings of the earth.

28 "My lovingkindness I will keep for him forever, And My covenant shall be confirmed to him.

29 "So I will establish his descendants forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 "If his sons forsake My law, And do not walk in My judgments,

31 If they violate My statutes, And do not keep My commandments,

32 Then I will visit their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.

33 "But I will not break off My lovingkindness from him, Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness.

34 "My covenant I will not violate, Nor will I alter the utterance of My lips.

35 "Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David.

36 "His descendants shall endure forever, And his throne as the sun before Me.

37 "It shall be established forever like the moon, And the witness in the sky is faithful." Selah.

38 But Thou hast cast off and rejected, Thou hast been full of wrath against Thine anointed.

39 Thou hast spurned the covenant of Thy servant; Thou hast profaned his crown in the dust.

40 Thou hast broken down all his walls; Thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.

41 All who pass along the way plunder him; He has become a reproach to his neighbors.

42 Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries; Thou hast made all his enemies rejoice.

43 Thou dost also turn back the edge of his sword, And hast not made him stand in battle.

44 Thou hast made his splendor to cease, And cast his throne to the ground.

45 Thou hast shortened the days of his youth; Thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.

46 How long, O LORD? Wilt Thou hide Thyself forever? Will Thy wrath burn like fire?

47 Remember what my span of life is; For what vanity Thou hast created all the sons of men!

48 What man can live and not see death? Can he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.

49 Where are Thy former lovingkindnesses, O Lord, Which Thou didst swear to David in Thy faithfulness?

50 Remember, O Lord, the reproach of Thy servants; How I do bear in my bosom {the reproach of} all the many peoples,

51 With which Thine enemies have reproached, O LORD, With which they have reproached the footsteps of Thine anointed.

52 Blessed be the LORD forever! Amen and Amen.

NASB 1995

Psalm 82

1 God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers.

2 How long will you judge unjustly And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.

3 Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.

4 Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver {them} out of the hand of the wicked.

5 They do not know nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, "You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High.

7 "Nevertheless you will die like men And fall like {any} one of the princes."

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is You who possesses all the nations.

Psalm 83

1 O God, do not remain quiet; Do not be silent and, O God, do not be still.

2 For behold, Your enemies make an uproar, And those who hate You have exalted themselves.

3 They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones.

4 They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more."

5 For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant:

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites;

7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera {and} Jabin at the torrent of Kishon,

10 Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who became as dung for the ground.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 Who said, "Let us possess for ourselves The pastures of God."

13 O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like chaff before the wind.

14 Like fire that burns the forest And like a flame that sets the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with Your tempest And terrify them with Your storm.

16 Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O LORD.

17 Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish,

18 That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 How lovely are Your dwelling places, O LORD of hosts!

2 My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

3 The bird also has found a house, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts, My King and my God.

4 How blessed are those who dwell in Your house! They are ever praising You. Selah.

5 How blessed is the man whose strength is in You, In whose heart are the highways {to Zion!}

6 Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength, {Every one of them} appears before God in Zion.

8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah.

9 Behold our shield, O God, And look upon the face of Your anointed.

10 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand {outside.} I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O LORD of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You!

Psalm 85

1 O LORD, You showed favor to Your land; You restored the captivity of Jacob.

2 You forgave the iniquity of Your people; You covered all their sin. Selah.

3 You withdrew all Your fury; You turned away from Your burning anger.

4 Restore us, O God of our salvation, And cause Your indignation toward us to cease.

5 Will You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?

6 Will You not Yourself revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?

7 Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, And grant us Your salvation.

8 I will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not turn back to folly.

9 Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land.

10 Lovingkindness and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven.

12 Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce.

13 Righteousness will go before Him And will make His footsteps into a way.

Psalm 86

1 Incline Your ear, O LORD, {and} answer me; For I am afflicted and needy.

2 Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man; O You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You.

3 Be gracious to me, O Lord, For to You I cry all day long.

4 Make glad the soul of Your servant, For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You.

6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; And give heed to the voice of my supplications!

7 In the day of my trouble I shall call upon You, For You will answer me.

8 There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours.

9 All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, And they shall glorify Your name.

10 For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God.

11 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.

12 I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever.

13 For Your lovingkindness toward me is great, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14 O God, arrogant men have risen up against me, And a band of violent men have sought my life, And they have not set You before them.

15 But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.

16 Turn to me, and be gracious to me; Oh grant Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your handmaid.

17 Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see {it} and be ashamed, Because You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

NET Bible

Psalm 82

1 A psalm of Asaph. God stands in the assembly of El; in the midst of the gods he renders judgment.

2 He says, “How long will you make unjust legal decisions and show favoritism to the wicked? (Selah)

3 Defend the cause of the poor and the fatherless! Vindicate the oppressed and suffering!

4 Rescue the poor and needy! Deliver them from the power of the wicked!

5 They neither know nor understand. They stumble around in the dark, while all the foundations of the earth crumble.

6 I thought, ‘You are gods; all of you are sons of the Most High.’

7 Yet you will die like mortals; you will fall like all the other rulers.”

8 Rise up, O God, and execute judgment on the earth! For you own all the nations.

Psalm 83

1 A song, a psalm of Asaph. O God, do not be silent! Do not ignore us! Do not be inactive, O God!

2 For look, your enemies are making a commotion; those who hate you are hostile.

3 They carefully plot against your people, and make plans to harm the ones you cherish.

4 They say, “Come on, let’s annihilate them so they are no longer a nation! Then the name of Israel will be remembered no more.”

5 Yes, they devise a unified strategy; they form an alliance against you.

6 It includes the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites,

7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia and the inhabitants of Tyre.

8 Even Assyria has allied with them, lending its strength to the descendants of Lot. (Selah)

9 Do to them as you did to Midian – as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River!

10 They were destroyed at Endor; their corpses were like manure on the ground.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, and all their rulers like Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 who said, “Let’s take over the pastures of God!”

13 O my God, make them like dead thistles, like dead weeds blown away by the wind!

14 Like the fire that burns down the forest, or the flames that consume the mountainsides,

15 chase them with your gale winds, and terrify them with your windstorm.

16 Cover their faces with shame, so they might seek you, O LORD.

17 May they be humiliated and continually terrified! May they die in shame!

18 Then they will know that you alone are the LORD, the sovereign king over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 For the music director; according to the gittith style; written by the Korahites, a psalm. How lovely is the place where you live, O LORD who rules over all!

2 I desperately want to be in the courts of the LORD’s temple. My heart and my entire being shout for joy to the living God.

3 Even the birds find a home there, and the swallow builds a nest, where she can protect her young near your altars, O LORD who rules over all, my king and my God.

4 How blessed are those who live in your temple and praise you continually! (Selah)

5 How blessed are those who find their strength in you, and long to travel the roads that lead to your temple!

6 As they pass through the Baca Valley, he provides a spring for them. The rain even covers it with pools of water.

7 They are sustained as they travel along; each one appears before God in Zion.

8 O LORD, sovereign God, hear my prayer! Listen, O God of Jacob! (Selah)

9 O God, take notice of our shield! Show concern for your chosen king!

10 Certainly spending just one day in your temple courts is better than spending a thousand elsewhere. I would rather stand at the entrance to the temple of my God than live in the tents of the wicked.

11 For the LORD God is our sovereign protector. The LORD bestows favor and honor; he withholds no good thing from those who have integrity.

12 O LORD who rules over all, how blessed are those who trust in you!

Psalm 85

1 For the music director; written by the Korahites, a psalm. O LORD, you showed favor to your land; you restored the well-being of Jacob.

2 You pardoned the wrongdoing of your people; you forgave all their sin. (Selah)

3 You withdrew all your fury; you turned back from your raging anger.

4 Restore us, O God our deliverer! Do not be displeased with us!

5 Will you stay mad at us forever? Will you remain angry throughout future generations?

6 Will you not revive us once more? Then your people will rejoice in you!

7 O LORD, show us your loyal love! Bestow on us your deliverance!

8 I will listen to what God the LORD says. For he will make peace with his people, his faithful followers. Yet they must not return to their foolish ways.

9 Certainly his loyal followers will soon experience his deliverance; then his splendor will again appear in our land.

10 Loyal love and faithfulness meet; deliverance and peace greet each other with a kiss.

11 Faithfulness grows from the ground, and deliverance looks down from the sky.

12 Yes, the LORD will bestow his good blessings, and our land will yield its crops.

13 Deliverance goes before him, and prepares a pathway for him.

Psalm 86

1 A prayer of David. Listen O LORD! Answer me! For I am oppressed and needy.

2 Protect me, for I am loyal! O my God, deliver your servant, who trusts in you!

3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I cry out to you all day long!

4 Make your servant glad, for to you, O Lord, I pray!

5 Certainly O Lord, you are kind and forgiving, and show great faithfulness to all who cry out to you.

6 O LORD, hear my prayer! Pay attention to my plea for mercy!

7 In my time of trouble I cry out to you, for you will answer me.

8 None can compare to you among the gods, O Lord! Your exploits are incomparable!

9 All the nations, whom you created, will come and worship you, O Lord. They will honor your name.

10 For you are great and do amazing things. You alone are God.

11 O LORD, teach me how you want me to live! Then I will obey your commands. Make me wholeheartedly committed to you!

12 O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart! I will honor your name continually!

13 For you will extend your great loyal love to me, and will deliver my life from the depths of Sheol.

14 O God, arrogant men attack me; a gang of ruthless men, who do not respect you, seek my life.

15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and merciful God. You are patient and demonstrate great loyal love and faithfulness.

16 Turn toward me and have mercy on me! Give your servant your strength! Deliver your slave!

17 Show me evidence of your favor! Then those who hate me will see it and be ashamed, for you, O LORD, will help me and comfort me.

Psalm 87

1 Written by the Korahites; a psalm, a song. The LORD’s city is in the holy hills.

2 The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

3 People say wonderful things about you, O city of God. (Selah)

4 I mention Rahab and Babylon to my followers. Here are Philistia and Tyre, along with Ethiopia. It is said of them, “This one was born there.”

5 But it is said of Zion’s residents, “Each one of these was born in her, and the sovereign One makes her secure.”

6 The LORD writes in the census book of the nations, “This one was born there.” (Selah)

7 As for the singers, as well as the pipers – all of them sing within your walls.

Psalm 88

1 A song, a psalm written by the Korahites; for the music director; according to the machalath-leannoth style; a well-written song by Heman the Ezrachite. O LORD God who delivers me! By day I cry out and at night I pray before you.

2 Listen to my prayer! Pay attention to my cry for help!

3 For my life is filled with troubles and I am ready to enter Sheol.

4 They treat me like those who descend into the grave. I am like a helpless man,

5 adrift among the dead, like corpses lying in the grave, whom you remember no more, and who are cut off from your power.

6 You place me in the lowest regions of the pit, in the dark places, in the watery depths.

7 Your anger bears down on me, and you overwhelm me with all your waves. (Selah)

8 You cause those who know me to keep their distance; you make me an appalling sight to them. I am trapped and cannot get free.

9 My eyes grow weak because of oppression. I call out to you, O LORD, all day long; I spread out my hands in prayer to you.

10 Do you accomplish amazing things for the dead? Do the departed spirits rise up and give you thanks? (Selah)

11 Is your loyal love proclaimed in the grave, or your faithfulness in the place of the dead?

12 Are your amazing deeds experienced in the dark region, or your deliverance in the land of oblivion?

13 As for me, I cry out to you, O LORD; in the morning my prayer confronts you.

14 O LORD, why do you reject me, and pay no attention to me?

15 I am oppressed and have been on the verge of death since my youth. I have been subjected to your horrors and am numb with pain.

16 Your anger overwhelms me; your terrors destroy me.

17 They surround me like water all day long; they join forces and encircle me.

18 You cause my friends and neighbors to keep their distance; those who know me leave me alone in the darkness.

Psalm 89

1 A well-written song by Ethan the Ezrachite. I will sing continually about the LORD’s faithful deeds; to future generations I will proclaim your faithfulness.

2 For I say, “Loyal love is permanently established; in the skies you set up your faithfulness.”

3 The LORD said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one; I have made a promise on oath to David, my servant:

4 ‘I will give you an eternal dynasty and establish your throne throughout future generations.’” (Selah)

5 O LORD, the heavens praise your amazing deeds, as well as your faithfulness in the angelic assembly.

6 For who in the skies can compare to the LORD? Who is like the LORD among the heavenly beings,

7 a God who is honored in the great angelic assembly, and more awesome than all who surround him?

8 O LORD, sovereign God! Who is strong like you, O LORD? Your faithfulness surrounds you.

9 You rule over the proud sea. When its waves surge, you calm them.

10 You crushed the Proud One and killed it; with your strong arm you scattered your enemies.

11 The heavens belong to you, as does the earth. You made the world and all it contains.

12 You created the north and the south. Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your name.

13 Your arm is powerful, your hand strong, your right hand victorious.

14 Equity and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loyal love and faithfulness characterize your rule.

15 How blessed are the people who worship you! O LORD, they experience your favor.

16 They rejoice in your name all day long, and are vindicated by your justice.

17 For you give them splendor and strength. By your favor we are victorious.

18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Then you spoke through a vision to your faithful followers and said: “I have energized a warrior; I have raised up a young man from the people.

20 I have discovered David, my servant. With my holy oil I have anointed him as king.

21 My hand will support him, and my arm will strengthen him.

22 No enemy will be able to exact tribute from him; a violent oppressor will not be able to humiliate him.

23 I will crush his enemies before him; I will strike down those who hate him.

24 He will experience my faithfulness and loyal love, and by my name he will win victories.

25 I will place his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers.

26 He will call out to me, ‘You are my father, my God, and the protector who delivers me.’

27 I will appoint him to be my firstborn son, the most exalted of the earth’s kings.

28 I will always extend my loyal love to him, and my covenant with him is secure.

29 I will give him an eternal dynasty, and make his throne as enduring as the skies above.

30 If his sons reject my law and disobey my regulations,

31 if they break my rules and do not keep my commandments,

32 I will punish their rebellion by beating them with a club, their sin by inflicting them with bruises.

33 But I will not remove my loyal love from him, nor be unfaithful to my promise.

34 I will not break my covenant or go back on what I promised.

35 Once and for all I have vowed by my own holiness, I will never deceive David.

36 His dynasty will last forever. His throne will endure before me, like the sun,

37 it will remain stable, like the moon, his throne will endure like the skies.” (Selah)

38 But you have spurned and rejected him; you are angry with your chosen king.

39 You have repudiated your covenant with your servant; you have thrown his crown to the ground.

40 You have broken down all his walls; you have made his strongholds a heap of ruins.

41 All who pass by have robbed him; he has become an object of disdain to his neighbors.

42 You have allowed his adversaries to be victorious, and all his enemies to rejoice.

43 You turn back his sword from the adversary, and have not sustained him in battle.

44 You have brought to an end his splendor, and have knocked his throne to the ground.

45 You have cut short his youth, and have covered him with shame. (Selah)

46 How long, O LORD, will this last? Will you remain hidden forever? Will your anger continue to burn like fire?

47 Take note of my brief lifespan! Why do you make all people so mortal?

48 No man can live on without experiencing death, or deliver his life from the power of Sheol. (Selah)

49 Where are your earlier faithful deeds, O Lord, the ones performed in accordance with your reliable oath to David?

50 Take note, O Lord, of the way your servants are taunted, and of how I must bear so many insults from people!

51 Your enemies, O LORD, hurl insults; they insult your chosen king as they dog his footsteps.

52 The LORD deserves praise forevermore! We agree! We agree!

New International Version

Psalm 82

1 God presides in the great assembly; he gives judgment among the "gods":

2 "How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked?

3 Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.

4 Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

5 "They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 "I said, `You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'

7 But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler."

8 Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.

Psalm 83

1 O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still.

2 See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads.

3 With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish.

4 "Come," they say, "let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more."

5 With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you--

6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites,

7 Gebal, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre.

8 Even Assyria has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot.

9 Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,

10 who perished at Endor and became like refuse on the ground.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 who said, "Let us take possession of the pasturelands of God."

13 Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind.

14 As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,

15 so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm.

16 Cover their faces with shame so that men will seek your name, O LORD.

17 May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace.

18 Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD-- that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty!

2 My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young-- a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.

5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.

6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.

7 They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

8 Hear my prayer, O LORD God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob.

9 Look upon our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.

10 Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.

12 O LORD Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.

Psalm 85

1 You showed favor to your land, O LORD; you restored the fortunes of Jacob.

2 You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.

3 You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.

4 Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.

5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?

6 Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?

7 Show us your unfailing love, O LORD, and grant us your salvation.

8 I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints-- but let them not return to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.

10 Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other.

11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven.

12 The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.

13 Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.

Psalm 86

1 Hear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.

2 Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.

3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.

4 Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5 You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.

6 Hear my prayer, O LORD; listen to my cry for mercy.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.

8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.

9 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.

10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

11 Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.

12 I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.

13 For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.

14 The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life-- men without regard for you.

15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

16 Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.

17 Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 He has set his foundation on the holy mountain;

2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are said of you, O city of God:

4 "I will record Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me-- Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush -- and will say, `This one was born in Zion.'"

5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her."

6 The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: "This one was born in Zion."

7 As they make music they will sing, "All my fountains are in you."

Psalm 88

1 O LORD, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you.

2 May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry.

3 For my soul is full of trouble and my life draws near the grave.

4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am like a man without strength.

5 I am set apart with the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, who are cut off from your care.

6 You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths.

7 Your wrath lies heavily upon me; you have overwhelmed me with all your waves.

8 You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape;

9 my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, O LORD, every day; I spread out my hands to you.

10 Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do those who are dead rise up and praise you?

11 Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness in Destruction ?

12 Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion?

13 But I cry to you for help, O LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you.

14 Why, O LORD, do you reject me and hide your face from me?

15 From my youth I have been afflicted and close to death; I have suffered your terrors and am in despair.

16 Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me.

17 All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me.

18 You have taken my companions and loved ones from me; the darkness is my closest friend.

Psalm 89

1 I will sing of the LORD's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.

2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

3 You said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant,

4 `I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.'"

5 The heavens praise your wonders, O LORD, your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.

6 For who in the skies above can compare with the LORD? Who is like the LORD among the heavenly beings?

7 In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him.

8 O LORD God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O LORD, and your faithfulness surrounds you.

9 You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them.

10 You crushed Rahab like one of the slain; with your strong arm you scattered your enemies.

11 The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth; you founded the world and all that is in it.

12 You created the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon sing for joy at your name.

13 Your arm is endued with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.

15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.

16 They rejoice in your name all day long; they exult in your righteousness.

17 For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn.

18 Indeed, our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: "I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have exalted a young man from among the people.

20 I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him.

21 My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him.

22 No enemy will subject him to tribute; no wicked man will oppress him.

23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries.

24 My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn will be exalted.

25 I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers.

26 He will call out to me, `You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.'

27 I will also appoint him my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth.

28 I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail.

29 I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure.

30 "If his sons forsake my law and do not follow my statutes,

31 if they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands,

32 I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging;

33 but I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness.

34 I will not violate my covenant or alter what my lips have uttered.

35 Once for all, I have sworn by my holiness-- and I will not lie to David--

36 that his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun;

37 it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky."

38 But you have rejected, you have spurned, you have been very angry with your anointed one.

39 You have renounced the covenant with your servant and have defiled his crown in the dust.

40 You have broken through all his walls and reduced his strongholds to ruins.

41 All who pass by have plundered him; he has become the scorn of his neighbors.

42 You have exalted the right hand of his foes; you have made all his enemies rejoice.

43 You have turned back the edge of his sword and have not supported him in battle.

44 You have put an end to his splendor and cast his throne to the ground.

45 You have cut short the days of his youth; you have covered him with a mantle of shame.

46 How long, O LORD? Will you hide yourself forever? How long will your wrath burn like fire?

47 Remember how fleeting is my life. For what futility you have created all men!

48 What man can live and not see death, or save himself from the power of the grave ?

49 O Lord, where is your former great love, which in your faithfulness you swore to David?

50 Remember, Lord, how your servant has been mocked, how I bear in my heart the taunts of all the nations,

51 the taunts with which your enemies have mocked, O LORD, with which they have mocked every step of your anointed one.

52 Praise be to the LORD forever! Amen and Amen.

Revised Standard Version

Psalm 82

1 A Psalm of Asaph. God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:

2 How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? [Selah]

3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.

4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."

5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I say, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;

7 nevertheless, you shall die like men, and fall like any prince."

8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for to thee belong all the nations!

Psalm 83

1 A Song. A Psalm of Asaph. O God, do not keep silence; do not hold thy peace or be still, O God!

2 For lo, thy enemies are in tumult; those who hate thee have raised their heads.

3 They lay crafty plans against thy people; they consult together against thy protected ones.

4 They say, "Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!"

5 Yea, they conspire with one accord; against thee they make a covenant--

6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites,

7 Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria also has joined them; they are the strong arm of the children of Lot. [Selah]

9 Do to them as thou didst to Midian, as to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon,

10 who were destroyed at Endor, who became dung for the ground.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

12 who said, "Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God."

13 O my God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind.

14 As fire consumes the forest, as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,

15 so do thou pursue them with thy tempest and terrify them with thy hurricane!

16 Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

17 Let them be put to shame and dismayed for ever; let them perish in disgrace.

18 Let them know that thou alone, whose name is the LORD, art the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. How lovely is thy dwelling place, O LORD of hosts!

2 My soul longs, yea, faints for the courts of the LORD; my heart and flesh sing for joy to the living God.

3 Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at thy altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in thy house, ever singing thy praise! [Selah]

5 Blessed are the men whose strength is in thee, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

6 As they go through the valley of Baca they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with pools.

7 They go from strength to strength; the God of gods will be seen in Zion.

8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; give ear, O God of Jacob! [Selah]

9 Behold our shield, O God; look upon the face of thine anointed!

10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; he bestows favor and honor. No good thing does the LORD withhold from those who walk uprightly.

12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in thee!

Psalm 85

1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. LORD, thou wast favorable to thy land; thou didst restore the fortunes of Jacob.

2 Thou didst forgive the iniquity of thy people; thou didst pardon all their sin. [Selah]

3 Thou didst withdraw all thy wrath; thou didst turn from thy hot anger.

4 Restore us again, O God of our salvation, and put away thy indignation toward us!

5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt thou prolong thy anger to all generations?

6 Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7 Show us thy steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

8 Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints, to those who turn to him in their hearts.

9 Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; righteousness and peace will kiss each other.

11 Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky.

12 Yea, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.

13 Righteousness will go before him, and make his footsteps a way.

Psalm 86

1 A Prayer of David. Incline thy ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve my life, for I am godly; save thy servant who trusts in thee. Thou art my God;

3 be gracious to me, O Lord, for to thee do I cry all the day.

4 Gladden the soul of thy servant, for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For thou, O Lord, art good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on thee.

6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer; hearken to my cry of supplication.

7 In the day of my trouble I call on thee, for thou dost answer me.

8 There is none like thee among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like thine.

9 All the nations thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify thy name.

10 For thou art great and doest wondrous things, thou alone art God.

11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, that I may walk in thy truth; unite my heart to fear thy name.

12 I give thanks to thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify thy name for ever.

13 For great is thy steadfast love toward me; thou hast delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.

14 O God, insolent men have risen up against me; a band of ruthless men seek my life, and they do not set thee before them.

15 But thou, O Lord, art a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

16 Turn to me and take pity on me; give thy strength to thy servant, and save the son of thy handmaid.

17 Show me a sign of thy favor, that those who hate me may see and be put to shame because thou, LORD, hast helped me and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. A Song. On the holy mount stands the city he founded;

2 the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. [Selah]

4 Among those who know me I mention Rahab and Babylon; behold, Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia--"This one was born there," they say.

5 And of Zion it shall be said, "This one and that one were born in her"; for the Most High himself will establish her.

6 The LORD records as he registers the peoples, "This one was born there." [Selah]

7 Singers and dancers alike say, "All my springs are in you."

Psalm 88

1 A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite. O LORD, my God, I call for help by day; I cry out in the night before thee.

2 Let my prayer come before thee, incline thy ear to my cry!

3 For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draws near to Sheol.

4 I am reckoned among those who go down to the Pit; I am a man who has no strength,

5 like one forsaken among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, like those whom thou dost remember no more, for they are cut off from thy hand.

6 Thou hast put me in the depths of the Pit, in the regions dark and deep.

7 Thy wrath lies heavy upon me, and thou dost overwhelm me with all thy waves. [Selah]

8 Thou hast caused my companions to shun me; thou hast made me a thing of horror to them. I am shut in so that I cannot escape;

9 my eye grows dim through sorrow. Every day I call upon thee, O LORD; I spread out my hands to thee.

10 Dost thou work wonders for the dead? Do the shades rise up to praise thee? [Selah]

11 Is thy steadfast love declared in the grave, or thy faithfulness in Abaddon?

12 Are thy wonders known in the darkness, or thy saving help in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But I, O LORD, cry to thee; in the morning my prayer comes before thee.

14 O LORD, why dost thou cast me off? Why dost thou hide thy face from me?

15 Afflicted and close to death from my youth up, I suffer thy terrors; I am helpless.

16 Thy wrath has swept over me; thy dread assaults destroy me.

17 They surround me like a flood all day long; they close in upon me together.

18 Thou hast caused lover and friend to shun me; my companions are in darkness.

Psalm 89

1 A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of thy steadfast love, O LORD, for ever; with my mouth I will proclaim thy faithfulness to all generations.

2 For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens.

3 Thou hast said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant:

4 'I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations.'" [Selah]

5 Let the heavens praise thy wonders, O LORD, thy faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones!

6 For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD,

7 a God feared in the council of the holy ones, great and terrible above all that are round about him?

8 O LORD God of hosts, who is mighty as thou art, O LORD, with thy faithfulness round about thee?

9 Thou dost rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, thou stillest them.

10 Thou didst crush Rahab like a carcass, thou didst scatter thy enemies with thy mighty arm.

11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine; the world and all that is in it, thou hast founded them.

12 The north and the south, thou hast created them; Tabor and Hermon joyously praise thy name.

13 Thou hast a mighty arm; strong is thy hand, high thy right hand.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of thy throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before thee.

15 Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance,

16 who exult in thy name all the day, and extol thy righteousness.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength; by thy favor our horn is exalted.

18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Of old thou didst speak in a vision to thy faithful one, and say: "I have set the crown upon one who is mighty, I have exalted one chosen from the people.

20 I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him;

21 so that my hand shall ever abide with him, my arm also shall strengthen him.

22 The enemy shall not outwit him, the wicked shall not humble him.

23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down those who hate him.

24 My faithfulness and my steadfast love shall be with him, and in my name shall his horn be exalted.

25 I will set his hand on the sea and his right hand on the rivers.

26 He shall cry to me, 'Thou art my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.'

27 And I will make him the first-born, the highest of the kings of the earth.

28 My steadfast love I will keep for him for ever, and my covenant will stand firm for him.

29 I will establish his line for ever and his throne as the days of the heavens.

30 If his children forsake my law and do not walk according to my ordinances,

31 if they violate my statutes and do not keep my commandments,

32 then I will punish their transgression with the rod and their iniquity with scourges;

33 but I will not remove from him my steadfast love, or be false to my faithfulness.

34 I will not violate my covenant, or alter the word that went forth from my lips.

35 Once for all I have sworn by my holiness; I will not lie to David.

36 His line shall endure for ever, his throne as long as the sun before me.

37 Like the moon it shall be established for ever; it shall stand firm while the skies endure." [Selah]

38 But now thou hast cast off and rejected, thou art full of wrath against thy anointed.

39 Thou hast renounced the covenant with thy servant; thou hast defiled his crown in the dust.

40 Thou hast breached all his walls; thou hast laid his strongholds in ruins.

41 All that pass by despoil him; he has become the scorn of his neighbors.

42 Thou hast exalted the right hand of his foes; thou hast made all his enemies rejoice.

43 Yea, thou hast turned back the edge of his sword, and thou hast not made him stand in battle.

44 Thou hast removed the scepter from his hand, and cast his throne to the ground.

45 Thou hast cut short the days of his youth; thou hast covered him with shame. [Selah]

46 How long, O LORD? Wilt thou hide thyself for ever? How long will thy wrath burn like fire?

47 Remember, O Lord, what the measure of life is, for what vanity thou hast created all the sons of men!

48 What man can live and never see death? Who can deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? [Selah]

49 Lord, where is thy steadfast love of old, which by thy faithfulness thou didst swear to David?

50 Remember, O Lord, how thy servant is scorned; how I bear in my bosom the insults of the peoples,

51 with which thy enemies taunt, O LORD, with which they mock the footsteps of thy anointed.

52 Blessed be the LORD for ever! Amen and Amen.

Psalm 82

1 Dios ocupa su lugar [O, {Dios se levanta}] en su congregación; El juzga en medio de los jueces.

2 ¿Hasta cuándo juzgaréis injustamente y favoreceréis a los impíos? (Selah)

3 Defended al débil y al huérfano; haced justicia al afligido y al menesteroso.

4 Rescatad al débil y al necesitado; librad{los} de la mano de los impíos.

5 No saben ni entienden; caminan en tinieblas; son sacudidos todos los cimientos de la tierra.

6 Yo dije: Vosotros sois dioses, y todos sois hijos del Altísimo.

7 Sin embargo, como hombres moriréis, y caeréis como uno de los príncipes.

8 ¡Levántate, oh Dios, juzga la tierra! Porque tú posees todas las naciones.

Psalm 83

1 Oh Dios, no permanezcas en silencio; no calles, oh Dios, ni te quedes quieto.

2 Porque, he aquí, tus enemigos rugen, y los que te aborrecen se han enaltecido.

3 Hacen planes astutos contra tu pueblo, y juntos conspiran contra tus protegidos.

4 Han dicho: Venid, y destruyámoslos como nación, para que ya no haya memoria del nombre de Israel.

5 Porque de corazón han conspirado a una; hacen pacto contra ti:

6 las tiendas de Edom y de los ismaelitas, Moab y los agarenos,

7 Gebal, Amón y Amalec, Filistea con los habitantes de Tiro;

8 Asiria también se ha unido a ellos; se han convertido en ayuda para los hijos de Lot. (Selah)

9 Trátalos como a Madián, como a Sísara, como a Jabín en el torrente Cisón,

10 que fueron destruidos en Endor, que quedaron {como} estiércol para la tierra.

11 Pon a sus nobles como a Oreb y Zeeb, y a todos sus príncipes como a Zeba y Zalmuna,

12 que dijeron: apoderémonos de los prados de Dios.

13 Oh Dios mío, ponlos como polvo en remolino; como paja ante el viento.

14 Como fuego que consume el bosque, y como llama que incendia las montañas,

15 así persíguelos con tu tempestad, y aterrorízalos con tu torbellino.

16 Cubre sus rostros de ignominia, para que busquen tu nombre, oh SEÑOR.

17 Sean avergonzados y turbados para siempre; sean humillados y perezcan,

18 para que sepan que sólo tú, que te llamas el SEÑOR, eres el Altísimo sobre toda la tierra.

Psalm 84

1 ¡Cuán preciosas son tus moradas, oh SEÑOR de los ejércitos!

2 Anhela mi alma, y aun desea con ansias los atrios del SEÑOR; mi corazón y mi carne cantan con gozo al Dios vivo.

3 Aun el ave ha hallado casa, y la golondrina nido para sí donde poner sus polluelos: ¡tus altares, oh SEÑOR de los ejércitos, Rey mío y Dios mío!

4 ¡Cuán bienaventurados son los que moran en tu casa! Continuamente te alaban. (Selah)

5 ¡Cuán bienaventurado es el hombre cuyo poder está en ti, en cuyo corazón están los caminos {a Sion}!

6 Pasando por el valle de Baca [Probablemente, {de Lágrimas,} o, {de Arboles de bálsamo}] lo convierten en manantial, también las lluvias tempranas lo cubren de bendiciones.

7 Van de poder en poder, {cada uno de ellos} comparece ante Dios en Sion.

8 ¡Oh SEÑOR, Dios de los ejércitos, oye mi oración; escucha, oh Dios de Jacob! (Selah)

9 Mira, oh Dios, escudo nuestro, y contempla el rostro de tu ungido.

10 Porque mejor es un día en tus atrios que mil {fuera de ellos.} Prefiero estar en el umbral de la casa de mi Dios que morar en las tiendas de impiedad.

11 Porque sol y escudo es el SEÑOR Dios; gracia y gloria da el SEÑOR; nada bueno niega a los que andan en integridad.

12 Oh SEÑOR de los ejércitos, ¡cuán bienaventurado es el hombre que en ti confía!

Psalm 85

1 Oh SEÑOR, tú mostraste favor a tu tierra, cambiaste la cautividad [O, {restauraste la suerte}] de Jacob.

2 Perdonaste la iniquidad de tu pueblo, cubriste todo su pecado. (Selah)

3 Retiraste toda tu furia, te apartaste del ardor de tu ira.

4 Restáuranos, oh Dios de nuestra salvación, haz cesar tu indignación contra nosotros.

5 ¿Estarás airado con nosotros para siempre? ¿Prolongarás tu ira de generación en generación?

6 ¿No volverás a darnos vida para que tu pueblo se regocije en ti?

7 Muéstranos, oh SEÑOR, tu misericordia, y danos tu salvación.

8 Escucharé lo que dirá Dios el SEÑOR, porque hablará paz a su pueblo, a sus santos; pero que no vuelvan ellos a la insensatez.

9 Ciertamente cercana está su salvación para los que le temen, para que more {su} gloria en nuestra tierra.

10 La misericordia y la verdad se han encontrado, la justicia y la paz se han besado.

11 La verdad brota de la tierra, y la justicia mira desde los cielos.

12 Ciertamente el SEÑOR dará lo que es bueno, y nuestra tierra dará su fruto.

13 La justicia irá delante de El, y pondrá por camino sus pasos.

Psalm 86

1 Inclina, oh SEÑOR, tu oído {y} respóndeme, porque estoy afligido y necesitado.

2 Guarda mi alma, pues soy piadoso; tú eres mi Dios; salva a tu siervo que en ti confía.

3 Ten piedad de mí, oh Señor, porque a ti clamo todo el día.

4 Alegra el alma de tu siervo, porque a ti, oh Señor, elevo mi alma.

5 Pues tú, Señor, eres bueno y perdonador, abundante en misericordia para con todos los que te invocan.

6 Escucha, oh SEÑOR, mi oración, y atiende a la voz de mis súplicas.

7 En el día de la angustia te invocaré, porque tú me responderás.

8 No hay nadie como tú entre los dioses, oh Señor, ni hay obras como las tuyas.

9 Todas las naciones que tú has hecho vendrán y adorarán delante de ti, Señor, y glorificarán tu nombre.

10 Porque tú eres grande y haces maravillas; sólo tú eres Dios.

11 Enséñame, oh SEÑOR, tu camino; andaré en tu verdad; unifica mi corazón para que tema tu nombre.

12 Te daré gracias, Señor mi Dios, con todo mi corazón, y glorificaré tu nombre para siempre.

13 Porque grande es tu misericordia para conmigo, y has librado mi alma de las profundidades del Seol.

14 Oh Dios, los arrogantes se han levantado contra mí, y una banda de violentos ha buscado mi vida, y no te han tenido en cuenta.

15 Mas tú, Señor, eres un Dios compasivo y {lleno} de piedad, lento para la ira y abundante en misericordia y fidelidad.

16 Vuélvete hacia mí, y tenme piedad; da tu poder a tu siervo, y salva al hijo de tu sierva.

17 Muéstrame una señal de bondad, para que {la} vean los que me aborrecen y se avergüencen, porque tú, oh SEÑOR, me has ayudado y consolado.

Psalm 87

1 En los montes santos están sus cimientos.

2 El SEÑOR ama las puertas de Sion más que todas las {otras} moradas de Jacob.

3 Cosas gloriosas se dicen de ti, oh ciudad de Dios: (Selah)

4 Mencionaré a Rahab [I.e., Egipto] y a Babilonia entre los que me conocen; he aquí, Filistea y Tiro con Etiopía; {de sus moradores se dirá:} "Este nació allí."

5 Pero de Sion se dirá: Este y aquél nacieron en ella; y el Altísimo mismo la establecerá.

6 El SEÑOR contará al inscribir los pueblos: Este nació allí. (Selah)

7 Entonces tanto los cantores como los flautistas, {dirán:} En ti están todas mis fuentes {de gozo}.

Psalm 88

1 Oh SEÑOR, Dios de mi salvación, de día y de noche he clamado delante de ti.

2 Llegue mi oración a tu presencia; inclina tu oído a mi clamor.

3 Porque saturada está mi alma de males, y mi vida se ha acercado al Seol.

4 Soy contado entre los que descienden a la fosa; he llegado a ser como hombre sin fuerza,

5 abandonado entre los muertos; como los caídos a espada que yacen en el sepulcro, de quienes ya no te acuerdas, y que han sido arrancados de tu mano.

6 Me has puesto en la fosa más profunda, en lugares tenebrosos, en las profundidades.

7 Ha reposado sobre mí tu furor, y {me} has afligido con todas tus olas. (Selah)

8 Has alejado de mí mis amistades, me has hecho objeto de repugnancia [Lit., {una abominación}] para ellos; encerrado estoy y no puedo salir.

9 Han languidecido mis ojos a causa de la aflicción; oh SEÑOR, cada día te he invocado, he extendido mis manos hacia ti.

10 ¿Harás maravillas a los muertos? ¿Se levantarán los muertos {y} te alabarán? (Selah)

11 ¿Se hablará de tu misericordia en el sepulcro, {y de} tu fidelidad en el Abadón [I.e., lugar de destrucción]?

12 ¿Se darán a conocer tus maravillas en las tinieblas, y tu justicia en la tierra del olvido?

13 Mas yo, a ti pido auxilio, SEÑOR, y mi oración llega ante ti por la mañana.

14 ¿Por qué, SEÑOR, rechazas mi alma? ¿{Por qué} escondes de mí tu rostro?

15 He estado afligido y a punto de morir desde mi juventud; sufro tus terrores, estoy abatido.

16 Sobre mí ha pasado tu ardiente ira; tus terrores me han destruido.

17 Me han rodeado como aguas todo el día; a una me han cercado.

18 Has alejado de mí al compañero y al amigo; mis amistades son las tinieblas.

Psalm 89

1 Por siempre cantaré de las misericordias del SEÑOR; con mi boca daré a conocer tu fidelidad a todas las generaciones.

2 Porque dije: Para siempre será edificada la misericordia; en los cielos mismos establecerás tu fidelidad.

3 Yo he hecho un pacto con mi escogido, he jurado a David mi siervo:

4 Estableceré tu descendencia para siempre, y edificaré tu trono por todas las generaciones. (Selah)

5 Los cielos alabarán tus maravillas, SEÑOR, y también tu fidelidad en la asamblea de los santos.

6 Porque, ¿quién en el firmamento se puede comparar al SEÑOR? ¿Quién entre los hijos de los poderosos es como el SEÑOR,

7 Dios muy temido en el consejo de los santos, e imponente sobre todos los que están en su derredor?

8 Oh SEÑOR, Dios de los ejércitos, ¿quién como tú, poderoso SEÑOR? Tu fidelidad también te rodea.

9 Tú dominas la soberbia del mar; cuando sus olas se levantan, tú las calmas.

10 Tú aplastaste a Rahab como a uno herido de muerte; esparciste a tus enemigos con tu brazo poderoso.

11 Tuyos son los cielos, tuya también la tierra; el mundo y todo lo que en él hay [Lit., {y su plenitud}], tú lo fundaste.

12 El norte y el sur, tú los creaste; el Tabor y el Hermón aclamarán con gozo a tu nombre.

13 Tú tienes un brazo fuerte; tu mano es poderosa, tu diestra es exaltada.

14 La justicia y el derecho son el fundamento de tu trono; la misericordia y la verdad van delante de ti.

15 ¡Cuán bienaventurado es el pueblo que sabe lo que es la voz de júbilo [O, {el sonido de la trompeta}]! Andan, SEÑOR, a la luz de tu rostro.

16 En tu nombre se regocijan todo el día, y por tu justicia son enaltecidos.

17 Porque tú eres la gloria de su potencia, y por tu gracia es exaltado nuestro poder.

18 Pues del SEÑOR es nuestro escudo, y del Santo de Israel nuestro rey.

19 Una vez hablaste en visión a tus santos, y dijiste: He ayudado a un poderoso; he exaltado a uno escogido de entre el pueblo.

20 He hallado a David mi siervo; lo he ungido con mi óleo santo,

21 y con él estará siempre mi mano; mi brazo también lo fortalecerá.

22 No lo engañará [O, {No lo explotará}] el enemigo, ni lo afligirá el hijo de maldad.

23 Sino que yo aplastaré a sus adversarios delante de él, y heriré a los que lo aborrecen.

24 Con él estarán mi fidelidad y mi misericordia, y en mi nombre será exaltado su poder.

25 Pondré también su mano sobre el mar, y su diestra sobre los ríos.

26 El clamará a mí: Mi Padre eres tú, mi Dios y la roca de mi salvación.

27 Yo también lo haré {mi} primogénito, el más excelso de los reyes de la tierra.

28 Para siempre conservaré mi misericordia hacia él, y mi pacto le será confirmado.

29 Así estableceré su descendencia para siempre, y su trono como los días de los cielos.

30 Si sus hijos abandonan mi ley y no andan en mis juicios,

31 si violan [Lit., {profanan}] mis estatutos y no guardan mis mandamientos,

32 entonces castigaré con vara su transgresión, y con azotes su iniquidad.

33 Pero no quitaré de él mi misericordia, ni obraré falsamente en mi fidelidad.

34 No quebrantaré mi pacto, ni cambiaré la palabra de mis labios.

35 Una vez [O, {Una cosa}] he jurado por mi santidad; no mentiré a David.

36 Su descendencia será para siempre, y su trono como el sol delante de mí.

37 Será establecido para siempre como la luna, fiel testigo en el cielo. (Selah)

38 Pero tú {lo} has rechazado y desechado, contra tu ungido te has enfurecido.

39 Has despreciado el pacto de tu siervo; has profanado su corona {echándola} por tierra.

40 Has derribado todos sus muros; has convertido en ruinas sus fortalezas.

41 Todos los que pasan por el camino lo saquean; ha venido a ser una afrenta para sus vecinos.

42 Tú has exaltado la diestra de sus adversarios; has hecho regocijarse a todos sus enemigos.

43 Has retirado también el filo de su espada, y no le has hecho estar firme en la batalla.

44 Has hecho cesar su esplendor, y has echado por tierra su trono.

45 Has acortado los días de su juventud; lo has cubierto de ignominia. (Selah)

46 ¿Hasta cuándo, SEÑOR? ¿Te esconderás para siempre? ¿Arderá como el fuego tu furor?

47 Recuerda cuán breve es mi vida; ¡con qué propósito vano has creado a todos los hijos de los hombres!

48 ¿Qué hombre podrá vivir y no ver la muerte? ¿Podrá librar su alma del poder del Seol? (Selah)

49 ¿Dónde están, Señor, tus misericordias de antes, que en tu fidelidad juraste a David?

50 Recuerda, Señor, el oprobio de tus siervos; {cómo} llevo dentro de mí {el oprobio de} muchos pueblos,

51 con el cual tus enemigos, oh SEÑOR, han injuriado, con el cual han injuriado los pasos de tu ungido.

52 ¡Bendito sea el SEÑOR para siempre! Amén y amén.

World English Bible

Psalm 82

1 (A Psalm by Asaph.) God presides in the great assembly. He judges among the gods.

2 "How long will you judge unjustly, And show partiality to the wicked?" Selah.

3 "Defend the weak, the poor, and the fatherless. Maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.

4 Rescue the weak and needy. Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked."

5 They don't know, neither do they understand. They walk back and forth in darkness. All the foundations of the earth are shaken.

6 I said, "You are gods, All of you are sons of the Most High.

7 Nevertheless you shall die like men, And fall like one of the rulers."

8 Arise, God, judge the earth, For you inherit all of the nations.

Psalm 83

1 (A song. A Psalm by Asaph.) God, don't keep silent. Don't keep silent, And don't be still, God.

2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up. Those who hate you have lifted up their heads.

3 They conspire with cunning against your people. They plot against your cherished ones.

4 "Come," they say, "and let's destroy them as a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more."

5 For they have conspired together with one mind. They form an alliance against you.

6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;

7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assyria also is joined with them. They have helped the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do to them as you did to Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;

10 Who perished at Endor, Who became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; Yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;

12 Who said, "Let us take possession Of God's pasturelands."

13 My God, make them like tumbleweed; Like chaff before the wind.

14 As the fire that burns the forest, As the flame that sets the mountains on fire,

15 So pursue them with your tempest, And terrify them with your storm.

16 Fill their faces with confusion, That they may seek your name, Yahweh.

17 Let them be disappointed and dismayed forever. Yes, let them be confounded and perish;

18 That they may know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh, Are the Most High over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1 (For the Chief Musician. On an instrument of Gath. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.) How lovely are your dwellings, Yahweh of Armies!

2 My soul longs, and even faints for the courts of Yahweh. My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

3 Yes, the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young, Near your altars, Yahweh of Armies, my King, and my God.

4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house. They are always praising you. Selah.

5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you; Who have set their hearts on a pilgrimage.

6 Passing through the valley of Weeping, they make it a place of springs. Yes, the autumn rain covers it with blessings.

7 They go from strength to strength. Everyone of them appears before God in Zion.

8 Yahweh, God of Armies, hear my prayer. Listen, God of Jacob. Selah.

9 Behold, God our shield, Look at the face of your anointed.

10 For a day in your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, Than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For Yahweh God is a sun and a shield. Yahweh will give grace and glory. He withholds no good thing from those who walk blamelessly.

12 Yahweh of Armies, Blessed is the man who trusts in you.

Psalm 85

1 (For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.) Yahweh, you have been favorable to your land. You have restored the fortunes of Jacob.

2 You have forgiven the iniquity of your people. You have covered all their sin. Selah.

3 You have taken away all your wrath. You have turned from the fierceness of your anger.

4 Turn us, God of our salvation, And cause your indignation toward us to cease.

5 Will you be angry with us forever? Will you draw out your anger to all generations?

6 Won't you revive us again, That your people may rejoice in you?

7 Show us your loving kindness, Yahweh. Grant us your salvation.

8 I will hear what God, Yahweh, will speak, For he will speak peace to his people, his saints; But let them not turn again to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, That glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth meet together. Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth springs out of the earth. Righteousness has looked down from heaven.

12 Yes, Yahweh will give that which is good. Our land will yield its increase.

13 Righteousness goes before him, And prepares the way for his steps.

Psalm 86

1 (A Prayer by David.) Hear, Yahweh, and answer me, For I am poor and needy.

2 Preserve my soul, for I am godly. You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you.

3 Be merciful to me, Lord, For I call to you all day long.

4 Bring joy to the soul of your servant, For to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; Abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you.

6 Hear, Yahweh, my prayer. Listen to the voice of my petitions.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call on you, For you will answer me.

8 There is no one like you among the gods, Lord, Nor any deeds like your deeds.

9 All nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord. They shall glorify your name.

10 For you are great, and do wondrous things. You are God alone.

11 Teach me your way, Yahweh. I will walk in your truth. Make my heart undivided to fear your name.

12 I will praise you, Lord my God, with my whole heart. I will glorify your name forevermore.

13 For your loving kindness is great toward me. You have delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14 God, the proud have risen up against me. A company of violent men have sought after my soul, And they don't hold regard for you before them.

15 But you, Lord, are a merciful and gracious God, Slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth.

16 Turn to me, and have mercy on me! Give your strength to your servant. Save the son of your handmaid.

17 Show me a sign of your goodness, That those who hate me may see it, and be shamed, Because you, Yahweh, have helped me, and comforted me.

Psalm 87

1 (A Psalm by the sons of Korah; a Song.) His foundation is in the holy mountains.

2 Yahweh loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

3 Glorious things are spoken about you, city of God. Selah.

4 I will record Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me. Behold, Philistia, Tyre, and also Ethiopia: "This one was born there."

5 Yes, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one was born in her;" The Most High himself will establish her.

6 Yahweh will count, when he writes up the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah.

7 Those who sing as well as those who dance say, "All my springs are in you."

Psalm 88

1 (A Song. A Psalm by the sons of Korah. For the Chief Musician. To the tune of "The Suffering of Affliction." A contemplation by Heman, the Ezrahite.) Yahweh, the God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before you.

2 Let my prayer enter into your presence. Turn your ear to my cry.

3 For my soul is full of troubles. My life draws near to Sheol.

4 I am counted among those who go down into the pit. I am like a man who has no help,

5 Set apart among the dead, Like the slain who lie in the grave, Whom you remember no more. They are cut off from your hand.

6 You have laid me in the lowest pit, In the darkest depths.

7 Your wrath lies heavily on me. You have afflicted me with all your waves. Selah.

8 You have taken my friends from me. You have made me an abomination to them. I am confined, and I can't escape.

9 My eyes are dim from grief. I have called on you daily, Yahweh. I have spread out my hands to you.

10 Do you show wonders to the dead? Do the dead rise up and praise you? Selah.

11 Is your loving kindness declared in the grave? Or your faithfulness in Destruction?

12 Are your wonders made known in the dark? Or your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 But to you, Yahweh, I have cried. In the morning, my prayer comes before you.

14 Yahweh, why do you reject my soul? Why do you hide your face from me?

15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up. While I suffer your terrors, I am distracted.

16 Your fierce wrath has gone over me. Your terrors have cut me off.

17 They came around me like water all day long. They completely engulfed me.

18 You have put lover and friend far from me, And my friends into darkness.

Psalm 89

1 (A contemplation by Ethan, the Ezrahite.) I will sing of the loving kindness of Yahweh forever. With my mouth, I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.

2 I indeed declare, "Love stands firm forever. You established the heavens. Your faithfulness is in them."

3 "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David, my servant,

4 "I will establish your seed forever, And build up your throne to all generations."" Selah.

5 The heavens will praise your wonders, Yahweh; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.

6 For who in the skies can be compared to Yahweh? Who among the sons of the heavenly beings is like Yahweh,

7 A very awesome God in the council of the holy ones, To be feared above all those who are around him?

8 Yahweh, God of Armies, who is a mighty one, like you? Yah, your faithfulness is around you.

9 You rule the pride of the sea. When its waves rise up, you calm them.

10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, like one of the slain. You have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.

11 The heavens are yours. The earth also is yours; The world and its fullness. You have founded them.

12 The north and the south, you have created them. Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your name.

13 You have a mighty arm. Your hand is strong, and your right hand is exalted.

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loving kindness and truth go before your face.

15 Blessed are the people who learn to acclaim you. They walk in the light of your presence, Yahweh.

16 In your name they rejoice all day. In your righteousness, they are exalted.

17 For you are the glory of their strength. In your favor, our horn will be exalted.

18 For our shield belongs to Yahweh; Our king to the Holy One of Israel.

19 Then you spoke in vision to your saints, And said, "I have bestowed strength on the warrior. I have exalted a young man from the people.

20 I have found David, my servant. I have anointed him with my holy oil,

21 With whom my hand shall be established. My arm will also strengthen him.

22 No enemy will tax him. No wicked man will oppress him.

23 I will beat down his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him.

24 But my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him. In my name, his horn will be exalted.

25 I will set his hand also on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.

26 He will call to me, "You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation!"

27 I will also appoint him my firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.

28 I will keep my loving kindness for him forevermore. My covenant will stand firm with him.

29 I will also make his seed endure forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.

30 If his children forsake my law, And don't walk in my ordinances;

31 If they break my statutes, And don't keep my commandments;

32 Then I will punish their sin with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.

33 But I will not completely take my loving kindness from him, Nor allow my faithfulness to fail.

34 I will not break my covenant, Nor alter what my lips have uttered.

35 Once have I sworn by my holiness, I will not lie to David.

36 His seed will endure forever, His throne like the sun before me.

37 It will be established forever like the moon, The faithful witness in the sky." Selah.

38 But you have rejected and spurned. You have been angry with your anointed.

39 You have renounced the covenant of your servant. You have defiled his crown in the dust.

40 You have broken down all his hedges. You have brought his strongholds to ruin.

41 All who pass by the way rob him. He has become a reproach to his neighbors.

42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries. You have made all of his enemies rejoice.

43 Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword, And haven't supported him in battle.

44 You have ended his splendor, And thrown his throne down to the ground.

45 You have shortened the days of his youth. You have covered him with shame. Selah.

46 How long, Yahweh? Will you hide yourself forever? Will your wrath burn like fire?

47 Remember how short my time is! For what vanity have you created all the children of men!

48 What man is he who shall live and not see death, Who shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.

49 Lord, where are your former loving kindnesses, Which you swore to David in your faithfulness?

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servants, How I bear in my heart the taunts of all the mighty peoples,

51 With which your enemies have mocked, Yahweh, With which they have mocked the footsteps of your anointed one.

52 Blessed be Yahweh forevermore. Amen, and Amen.

Young's Literal Translation

Psalm 82

1 -- A Psalm of Asaph. God hath stood in the company of God, In the midst God doth judge.

2 Till when do ye judge perversely? And the face of the wicked lift up? Selah.

3 Judge ye the weak and fatherless, The afflicted and the poor declare righteous.

4 Let the weak and needy escape, From the hand of the wicked deliver them.

5 They knew not, nor do they understand, In darkness they walk habitually, Moved are all the foundations of earth.

6 I -- I have said, "Gods ye are, And sons of the Most High -- all of you,

7 But as man ye die, and as one of the heads ye fall,

8 Rise, O God, judge the earth, For Thou hast inheritance among all the nations!

Psalm 83

1 A Song, -- A Psalm of Asaph. O God, let there be no silence to Thee, Be not silent, nor be quiet, O God.

2 For, lo, Thine enemies do roar, And those hating Thee have lifted up the head,

3 Against Thy people they take crafty counsel, And consult against Thy hidden ones.

4 They have said, "Come, And we cut them off from being a nation, And the name of Israel is not remembered any more."

5 For they consulted in heart together, Against Thee a covenant they make,

6 Tents of Edom, and Ishmaelites, Moab, and the Hagarenes,

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with inhabitants of Tyre,

8 Asshur also is joined with them, They have been an arm to sons of Lot. Selah.

9 Do to them as to Midian, As to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the stream Kishon.

10 They were destroyed at Endor, They were dung for the ground!

11 Make their nobles as Oreb and as Zeeb, And as Zebah and Zalmunna all their princes,

12 Who have said, "Let us occupy for ourselves The comely places of God."

13 O my God, make them as a rolling thing, As stubble before wind.

14 As a fire doth burn a forest, And as a flame setteth hills on fire,

15 So dost Thou pursue them with Thy whirlwind, And with Thy hurricane troublest them.

16 Fill their faces with shame, And they seek Thy name, O Jehovah.

17 They are ashamed and troubled for ever, Yea, they are confounded and lost.

18 And they know that Thou -- (Thy name is Jehovah -- by Thyself,) Art the Most High over all the earth!

Psalm 84

1 To the Overseer. -- "On the Gittith By sons of Korah." -- A Psalm. How beloved Thy tabernacles, Jehovah of Hosts!

2 My soul desired, yea, it hath also been consumed, For the courts of Jehovah, My heart and my flesh cry aloud unto the living God,

3 (Even a sparrow hath found a house, And a swallow a nest for herself, Where she hath placed her brood,) Thine altars, O Jehovah of Hosts, My king and my God.

4 O the happiness of those inhabiting Thy house, Yet do they praise Thee. Selah.

5 O the happiness of a man whose strength is in Thee, Highways are in their heart.

6 Those passing through a valley of weeping, A fountain do make it, Blessings also cover the director.

7 They go from strength unto strength, He appeareth unto God in Zion.

8 O Jehovah, God of Hosts, hear my prayer, Give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

9 Our shield, see, O God, And behold the face of Thine anointed,

10 For good is a day in Thy courts, O Teacher! I have chosen rather to be at the threshold, In the house of my God, Than to dwell in tents of wickedness.

11 For a sun and a shield is Jehovah God, Grace and honour doth Jehovah give. He withholdeth not good To those walking in uprightness.

12 Jehovah of Hosts! O the happiness of a man trusting in Thee.

Psalm 85

1 To the Overseer. -- By sons of Korah. A Psalm. Thou hast accepted, O Jehovah, Thy land, Thou hast turned to the captivity of Jacob.

2 Thou hast borne away the iniquity of Thy people, Thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3 Thou hast gathered up all Thy wrath, Thou hast turned back from the fierceness of Thine anger.

4 Turn back to us, O God of our salvation, And make void Thine anger with us.

5 To the age art Thou angry against us? Dost Thou draw out Thine anger To generation and generation?

6 Dost Thou not turn back? Thou revivest us, And Thy people do rejoice in Thee.

7 Show us, O Jehovah, thy kindness, And Thy salvation Thou dost give to us.

8 I hear what God Jehovah speaketh, For He speaketh peace unto His people, And unto His saints, and they turn not back to folly.

9 Only, near to those fearing Him is His salvation, That honour may dwell in our land.

10 Kindness and truth have met, Righteousness and peace have kissed,

11 Truth from the earth springeth up, And righteousness from heaven looketh out,

12 Jehovah also giveth that which is good, And our land doth give its increase.

13 Righteousness before Him goeth, And maketh His footsteps for a way!

Psalm 86

1 A Prayer of David. Incline, O Jehovah, Thine ear, Answer me, for I am poor and needy.

2 Keep my soul, for I am pious, Save Thy servant -- who is trusting to Thee, O Thou, my God.

3 Favour me, O Lord, for to Thee I call all the day.

4 Rejoice the soul of Thy servant, For unto Thee, O Lord, my soul I lift up.

5 For Thou, Lord, art good and forgiving. And abundant in kindness to all calling Thee.

6 Hear, O Jehovah, my prayer, And attend to the voice of my supplications.

7 In a day of my distress I call Thee, For Thou dost answer me.

8 There is none like Thee among the gods, O Lord, And like Thy works there are none.

9 All nations that Thou hast made Come and bow themselves before Thee, O Lord, And give honour to Thy name.

10 For great art Thou, and doing wonders, Thou art God Thyself alone.

11 Show me, O Jehovah, Thy way, I walk in Thy truth, My heart doth rejoice to fear Thy name.

12 I confess Thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I honour Thy name to the age.

13 For Thy kindness is great toward me, And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest Sheol.

14 O God, the proud have risen up against me, And a company of the terrible sought my soul, And have not placed Thee before them,

15 And Thou, O Lord, art God, merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in kindness and truth.

16 Look unto me, and favour me, Give Thy strength to Thy servant, And give salvation to a son of Thine handmaid.

17 Do with me a sign for good, And those hating me see and are ashamed, For Thou, O Jehovah, hast helped me, Yea, Thou hast comforted me!

Psalm 87

1 By sons of Korah. -- A Psalm, a song. His foundation is in holy mountains.

2 Jehovah is loving the gates of Zion Above all the tabernacles of Jacob.

3 Honourable things are spoken in Thee, O city of God. Selah.

4 I mention Rahab and Babel to those knowing Me, Lo, Philistia, and Tyre, with Cush! This one was born there.

5 And of Zion it is said: Each one was born in her, And He, the Most High, doth establish her.

6 Jehovah doth recount in the describing of the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah.

7 Singers also as players on instruments, All my fountains are in Thee!

Psalm 88

1 A Song, a Psalm, by sons of Korah, to the Overseer, "Concerning the Sickness of Afflictions." -- An instruction, by Heman the Ezrahite. O Jehovah, God of my salvation, Daily I have cried, nightly before Thee,

2 My prayer cometh in before Thee, Incline Thine ear to my loud cry,

3 For my soul hath been full of evils, And my life hath come to Sheol.

4 I have been reckoned with those going down to the pit, I have been as a man without strength.

5 Among the dead -- free, As pierced ones lying in the grave, Whom Thou hast not remembered any more, Yea, they by Thy hand have been cut off.

6 Thou hast put me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in depths.

7 Upon me hath Thy fury lain, And with all Thy breakers Thou hast afflicted. Selah.

8 Thou hast put mine acquaintance far from me, Thou hast made me an abomination to them, Shut up -- I go not forth.

9 Mine eye hath grieved because of affliction, I called Thee, O Jehovah, all the day, I have spread out unto Thee my hands.

10 To the dead dost Thou do wonders? Do Rephaim rise? do they thank Thee? Selah.

11 Is Thy kindness recounted in the grave? Thy faithfulness in destruction?

12 Are Thy wonders known in the darkness? And Thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

13 And I, unto Thee, O Jehovah, I have cried, And in the morning doth my prayer come before Thee.

14 Why, O Jehovah, castest Thou off my soul? Thou hidest Thy face from me.

15 I am afflicted, and expiring from youth, I have borne Thy terrors -- I pine away.

16 Over me hath Thy wrath passed, Thy terrors have cut me off,

17 They have surrounded me as waters all the day, They have gone round against me together,

18 Thou hast put far from me lover and friend, Mine acquaintance is the place of darkness!
