Psalm 73

A psalm of Asaph.

1Surely God is good to Israel,
to those who are pure in heart.

2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped;
I had nearly lost my foothold.

3 For I envied the arrogant
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4 They have no struggles;
their bodies are healthy and strong.

5 They are free from the burdens common to man;
they are not plagued by human ills.

6 Therefore pride is their necklace;
they clothe themselves with violence.

7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity ;
the evil conceits of their minds know no limits.

8 They scoff, and speak with malice;
in their arrogance they threaten oppression.

9 Their mouths lay claim to heaven,
and their tongues take possession of the earth.

10 Therefore their people turn to them
and drink up waters in abundance. [c]

11 They say, “How can God know?
Does the Most High have knowledge?”

12 This is what the wicked are like-
always carefree, they increase in wealth.

13 Surely in vain have I kept my heart pure;
in vain have I washed my hands in innocence.

14 All day long I have been plagued;
I have been punished every morning.

15 If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
I would have betrayed your children.

16 When I tried to understand all this,
it was oppressive to me

17 till I entered the sanctuary of God;
then I understood their final destiny.

18 Surely you place them on slippery ground;
you cast them down to ruin.

19 How suddenly are they destroyed,
completely swept away by terrors!

20 As a dream when one awakes,
so when you arise, O Lord,
you will despise them as fantasies.

21 When my heart was grieved
and my spirit embittered,

22 I was senseless and ignorant;
I was a brute beast before you.

23 Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.

24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.

25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

27 Those who are far from you will perish;
you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.

28 But as for me, it is good to be near God.
I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge;
I will tell of all your deeds.

POD – Psalm 58

Psalm 58

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

For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.”

Of David. A miktam .

1 Do you rulers indeed speak justly?

Do you judge uprightly among men?

2 No, in your heart you devise injustice,

and your hands mete out violence on the earth.

3 Even from birth the wicked go astray;

from the womb they are wayward and speak lies.

4 Their venom is like the venom of a snake,

like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears,

5 that will not heed the tune of the charmer,

however skillful the enchanter may be.

6 Break the teeth in their mouths, O God;

tear out, O LORD, the fangs of the lions!

7 Let them vanish like water that flows away;

when they draw the bow, let their arrows be blunted.

8 Like a slug melting away as it moves along,

like a stillborn child, may they not see the sun.

9 Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns-

whether they be green or dry-the wicked will be swept away.

10 The righteous will be glad when they are avenged,

when they bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked.

11 Then men will say,

“Surely the righteous still are rewarded;

surely there is a God who judges the earth.”

Psalm 51

Right mouse click to save this Podcast as a MP3.

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David, when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.

51:1 Have mercy on me, God,

according to your loving kindness.

According to the multitude of your tender mercies,

blot out my transgressions.

51:2 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity.

Cleanse me from my sin.

51:3 For I know my transgressions.

My sin is constantly before me.

51:4 Against you, and you only, have I sinned,

and done that which is evil in your sight;

that you may be proved right when you speak,

and justified when you judge.

51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity.

In sin my mother conceived me.

51:6 Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts.

You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

51:7 Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean.

Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

51:8 Let me hear joy and gladness,

That the bones which you have broken may rejoice.

51:9 Hide your face from my sins,

and blot out all of my iniquities.

51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God.

Renew a right spirit within me.

51:11 Don’t throw me from your presence,

and don’t take your holy Spirit from me.

51:12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation.

Uphold me with a willing spirit.

51:13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways.

Sinners shall be converted to you.

51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness,

O God, the God of my salvation.

My tongue shall sing aloud of your righteousness.

51:15 Lord, open my lips.

My mouth shall declare your praise.

51:16 For you don’t delight in sacrifice,

or else I would give it.

You have no pleasure in burnt offering.

51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit.

A broken and contrite heart,

O God, you will not despise.

51:18 Do well in your good pleasure to Zion.

Build the walls of Jerusalem.

51:19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness,

in burnt offerings and in whole burnt offerings.

Then they will offer bulls on your altar.

POD – Psalm 84

Psalm 84

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


1-2 What a beautiful home, God-of-the-Angel-Armies!

I’ve always longed to live in a place like this,

Always dreamed of a room in your house,

where I could sing for joy to God-alive!

3-4 Birds find nooks and crannies in your house,

sparrows and swallows make nests there.

They lay their eggs and raise their young,

singing their songs in the place where we worship.

God-of-the-Angel-Armies! King! God!

How blessed they are to live and sing there!

5-7 And how blessed all those in whom you live,

whose lives become roads you travel;

They wind through lonesome valleys, come upon brooks,

discover cool springs and pools brimming with rain!

God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and

at the last turn-Zion! God in full view!

8-9 God-of-the-Angel-Armies, listen:

O God of Jacob, open your ears-I’m praying!

Look at our shields, glistening in the sun,

our faces, shining with your gracious anointing.

10-12 One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship,

beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches.

I’d rather scrub floors in the house of my God

than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin.

All sunshine and sovereign is God,

generous in gifts and glory.

He doesn’t scrimp with his traveling companions.

It’s smooth sailing all the way with God-of-the-Angel-Armies.
