Ascribe to the LORD, sons of the mighty, Ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; Worship the LORD in holy attire.
The voice of the LORD is on the waters; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters.
The voice of the LORD is powerful, The voice of the LORD is majestic.
The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon in pieces.
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, And Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the LORD divides flames of fire.
The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; The LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the LORD makes the deer give birth And strips the forests bare; And in His temple everything says, 'Glory!'
The LORD sat as King
at the flood; Yes, the LORD sits as King forever.
The LORD will give strength to His people; The LORD will bless His people with peace.
I will exalt You, LORD, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
LORD, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.
Sing praise to the LORD, you His godly ones, And praise the mention of His holiness.
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes
in the morning.
Now as for me, I said in my prosperity, 'I will never be moved.'
LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong; You hid Your face, I was dismayed.
To You, LORD, I called, And to the Lord I pleaded for compassion:
'What gain is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness?
'Hear, LORD, and be gracious to me; LORD, be my helper.'
You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have untied my sackcloth and encircled me with joy,
soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
In You, LORD, I have taken refuge; Let me never be put to shame; In Your righteousness rescue me.
Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly; Be a rock of strength for me, A stronghold to save me.
For You are my rock and my fortress; For the sake of Your name You will lead me and guide me.
You will pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, For You are my strength.
Into Your hand I entrust my spirit; You have redeemed me, LORD, God of truth.
I hate those who devote themselves to worthless idols, But I trust in the LORD.
I will rejoice and be glad in Your faithfulness, Because You have seen my misery; You have known the troubles of my soul,
And You have not handed me over to the enemy; You have set my feet in a large place.
Be gracious to me, LORD, for I am in distress; My eye is wasted away from grief, my soul and my body too.
For my life is spent with sorrow And my years with sighing; My strength has failed because of my guilt, And my body has wasted away.
Because of all my adversaries, I have become a disgrace, Especially to my neighbors, And an object of dread to my acquaintances; Those who see me in the street flee from me.
I am forgotten like a dead person, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.
For I have heard the slander of many, Terror is on every side; While they took counsel together against me, They schemed to take away my life.
But as for me, I trust in You, LORD, I say, 'You are my God.'
My times are in Your hand; Rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me.
Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me in Your faithfulness.
Let me not be put to shame, LORD, for I call upon You; Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol.
Let the lying lips be speechless, Which speak arrogantly against the righteous With pride and contempt.
How great is Your goodness, Which You have stored up for those who fear You, Which You have performed for those who take refuge in You, Before the sons of mankind!
You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of mankind; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues.
Blessed be the LORD, For He has shown His marvelous faithfulness to me in a besieged city.
As for me, I said in my alarm, 'I am cut off from Your eyes'; Nevertheless You heard the sound of my pleadings When I called to You for help.
Love the LORD, all His godly ones! The LORD watches over the faithful But fully repays the one who acts arrogantly.
Be strong and let your heart take courage, All you who wait for the LORD.
