POD – Psalm 8
1 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.
2 From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?
5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
7 all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,
8 the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

20:1 May Yahweh answer you in the day of trouble.
May the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high,
20:2 send you help from the sanctuary, grant you support from Zion,
20:3 remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice.
20:4 May He grant you your heart’s desire, and fulfill all your counsel.
20:5 We will triumph in your salvation. In the name of our God, we will set up our banners. May Yahweh grant all your requests.
20:6 Now I know that Yahweh saves his anointed. He will answer him from his holy heaven, with the saving strength of his right hand.
20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we trust the name of Yahweh our God.
20:8 They are bowed down and fallen, but we rise up, and stand upright.
20:9 Save, Yahweh! Let the King answer us when we call!
71:1 In you, Yahweh, I take refuge.
Never let me be disappointed.
71:2 Deliver me in your righteousness, and rescue me.
Turn your ear to me, and save me.
71:3 Be to me a rock of refuge to which I may always go.
Give the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
71:4 Rescue me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
71:5 For you are my hope, Lord Yahweh;
my confidence from my youth.
71:6 I have relied on you from the womb.
You are he who took me out of my mother’s womb.
I will always praise you.
71:7 I am a marvel to many,
but you are my strong refuge.
71:8 My mouth shall be filled with your praise,
with your honor all the day.
71:9 Don’t reject me in my old age.
Don’t forsake me when my strength fails.
71:10 For my enemies talk about me.
Those who watch for my soul conspire together,
71:11 saying, “God has forsaken him.
Pursue and take him, for no one will rescue him.”
71:12 God, don’t be far from me.
My God, hurry to help me.
71:13 Let my accusers be disappointed and consumed.
Let them be covered with disgrace and scorn who want to harm me.
71:14 But I will always hope,
and will add to all of your praise.
71:15 My mouth will tell about your righteousness,
and of your salvation all day,
though I don’t know its full measure.
71:16 I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord Yahweh.
I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours alone.
71:17 God, you have taught me from my youth.
Until now, I have declared your wondrous works.
71:18 Yes, even when I am old and gray-haired, God, don’t forsake me,
until I have declared your strength to the next generation,
your might to everyone who is to come.
71:19 Your righteousness also, God, reaches to the heavens;
you have done great things.
God, who is like you?
71:20 You, who have shown us many and bitter troubles,
you will let me live.
You will bring us up again from the depths of the earth.
71:21 Increase my honor,
and comfort me again.
71:22 I will also praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God.
I sing praises to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel.
71:23 My lips shall shout for joy!
My soul, which you have redeemed, sings praises to you!
71:24 My tongue will also talk about your righteousness all day long,
for they are disappointed, and they are confounded,
who want to harm me.

137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down. Yes, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2 On the willows in its midst, we hung up our harps.
137:3 For there, those who led us captive asked us for songs. Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy: “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
137:4 How can we sing Yahweh’s song in a foreign land?
137:5 If I forget you, Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill.
137:6 Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I don’t remember you; if I don’t prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy.
137:7 Remember, Yahweh, against the children of Edom, the day of Jerusalem; who said, “Raze it! Raze it even to its foundation!”
137:8 Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, he will be happy who rewards you, as you have served us.
137:9 Happy shall he be, who takes and dashes your little ones against the rock.
for his loving kindness endures forever.
