A Psalm of Asaph. 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 moved. 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 p ..read more

For the Chief Musician; set to the Gittith. A Psalm of Asaph. 1 Sing aloud unto God our strength: Make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob. 2 Take up the psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, The pleasant harp with the psaltery. 3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, At the full moon, on our solemn feast day. 4 For it is a statute for Israel, An ordinance of the God of Jacob. 5 He appointed it in Joseph for testimony, When he went out over the land of Egypt: Where I heard a language that I knew not. 6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: His hands were freed from the basket ..read more

For the Chief Musician; set to Shoshannim Eduth. A Psalm of Asaph. 1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; Thou that sittest upon the cherubim, shine forth. 2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up thy might, And come to save us. 3 Turn us again, O God; And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. 4 O LORD God of hosts, How long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people? 5 Thou hast fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in large measure. 6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: And our enemie ..read more

A Psalm of Asaph. 1 O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; Thy holy temple have they defiled; They have laid Jerusalem on heaps. 2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, The flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth. 3 Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; And there was none to bury them. 4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, A scorn and derision to them that are round about us. 5 How long, O LORD, wilt thou be angry for ever? Shall thy jealousy burn like fire? 6 Pour out thy wrath up ..read more

Maschil of Asaph. 1 Give ear, O my people, to my law; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old: 3 Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And his strength, and his wondrous works that he hath done. 5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, And appointed a law in Israel, Which he commanded our fathers, That they should make them known to their children: 6 That the generation to come might know them ..read more

For the Chief Musician; after the manner of Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph. 1 I will cry unto God with my voice; Even unto God with my voice, and he wilt give ear unto me. 2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: My hand was stretched out in the night, and slacked not; My soul refused to be comforted. 3 I remember God, and am disquieted: I complain, and my spirit is overwhelmed.     Selah 4 Thou holdest mine eyes watching: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 5 I have considered the days of old, The years of ancient times. 6 I call to remembrance my song in the night ..read more

For the Chief Musician; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song. 1 In Judah is God known: His name is great in Israel. 2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, And his dwelling place in Zion. 3 There he brake the arrows of the bow; The shield, and the sword, and the battle.     Selah 4 Glorious art thou and excellent, from the mountains of prey. 5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep; And none of the men of might have found their hands. 6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, Both chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep. 7 Thou, even thou, art to ..read more

For the Chief Musician; set to Al-tashheth. A Psalm of Asaph, a Song. 1 We give thanks unto thee, O God; We give thanks, for thy name is near: Men tell of thy wondrous works. 2 When I shall find the set time, I will judge uprightly. 3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I have set up the pillars of it.     Selah 4 I said unto the arrogant, Deal not arrogantly: And to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: 5 Lift not up your horn on high; Speak not with a stiff neck. 6 For neither from the east, nor from the west, Nor yet from the south, cometh lifting u ..read more

Maschil of Asaph. 1 O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? Why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? 2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old, Which thou hast redeemed to be the tribe of thine inheritance; And mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. 3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual ruins, All the evil that the enemy hath done in the sanctuary. 4 Thine adversaries have roared in the midst of thine assembly; They have set up their ensigns for signs. 5 They seemed as men that lifted up Axes upon a thicket of trees. 6 And now all the carved work thereo ..read more

A Psalm of Asaph. 1 Surely God is good to Israel, Even to such as are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. 3 For I was envious at the arrogant, When I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 For there are no bands in their death: But their strength is firm. 5 They are not in trouble as other men; Neither are they plagued like other men. 6 Therefore pride is as a chain about their neck; Violence covereth them as a garment. 7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: They have more than heart could wish. 8 They scoff, and in wickedness utter op ..read more
