      21[1-7] To the first musician, A Hymn of David. I’ll rejoice in Your strength, oh Yahweh; how greatly I will celebrate when You save me! You’ve given me the very thing my heart wanted, and haven’t withheld any of my requests. Selah! For You amaze me with blessings of goodness: You set a golden crown on my head. I asked life of You, and You gave it to me, even eternal life. My fame is made great in how You saved me; honor and majesty You’ve given me. For You’ve made me most blessed forever; You’ve made me very glad with Your countenance. For I trust in Yahweh, and through the mercy of the Most High God, I won’t be upset.

     [8-17] Your hand will find all Your enemies: Your strong hand will find all those that hate You. You’ll make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger: Yahweh, You’ll overcome them with Your anger, and the fire will consume them. You’ll destroy their children from the earth, and their grandchildren from among the children of humanity. For they intended evil against You: they made mischievous plans, which they weren’t able to do, so You’ll make them go back, when You prepare Your weapons against them. May You be made known, oh Yahweh, for Your mighty power: so we’ll sing and praise Your victory.

22[1-5] To the first musician, to the tune of The Doe of the Dawn, A Hymn of David. My God, My God, why have You left Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, and from the sound of My voice? Oh My God, I cry in the daytime, but You don’t hear; and in the night and I’m still not silent. But You are holy, the One who lives in the praises of Your people. Our parents trusted in You: they trusted, and You saved them. They cried to You, and were set free: they trusted in You, and were never confused.

     [6-10] But I am a spineless creature, and no human being; blamed and hated by these people. All those that see Me laugh at me: sticking out their lips, shaking their heads saying, You trusted on Yahweh, thinking that God would save You: let Yahweh save You, seeing God delights in You. But You are the One who took Me out of the womb: You made Me hope when I nursed on My mother’s breasts. I was dedicated to You from the womb: You are My God from My conception.

     [11-21] Don’t be far from Me; for trouble is near; and there’s none to help. Many strong ones have overtaken Me: and they have surrounded Me. Their mouths gape open at Me, as ravenous, roaring lions. I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax, melted in the midst of My bowels. My strength is dried up like a piece of pottery; and My mouth clings to My jaws; and You’ve brought Me into the dust of death. For these dogs have overtaken Me: the assembly of the sinful has enclosed Me: they pierced My hands and My feet. I can see all My bones as they look and stare at Me. They divided My clothes among them, and placed bets on My coat. But don’t be far from Me, oh Yahweh: oh My strength, help Me quickly. Deliver My soul from the blade; My very life from the power of these sinners. Save Me from these lion’s mouths: for You’ve heard Me cry out from the power of these brute wild animals.

     [22-31] I’ll declare Your Name to My people: in the midst of the congregation I’ll praise You. You who respect Yahweh, all you children of God, praise, glorify, and respect God. Yahweh, You haven’t hated them, nor hated the troubles of those who are abused; nor have You turned Your face away from them; but when they cried to You, You heard. So I’ll praise You in the great congregation: I’ll pay My vows before those that respect You. Those with humility will eat and be satisfied: those that seek Yahweh will praise God and their spirit will live forever. Everyone in the world will remember and turn to Yahweh, and all the people of the nations will worship before You. For the ends of the earth are Yahweh’s, and God rules among all the nations. All those that are living on the earth will eat and worship: all those who are buried in the earth will bow before You, none keeping their own soul alive. The children of generations yet to come will minister to You and be counted as children of God. They’ll come and speak of Your righteousness to a people that is still to be born in the future, saying that You alone have done all this.

     23[1-] A Hymn of David. Yahweh, You are my life saver, so I need nothing else. I rest in a peaceful land, for You bring me to calm and refreshing waters. You revive my soul, leading me in the right direction for Your Name’s sake. Yes, even if I walk through the deepest valley, in the darkest shadows, even to the brink of death, I won’t be afraid of anything: for You always walk with me, leading, defending, and comforting me. You keep me safe in the sight of all my enemies, anointing me with Your Spirit as with oil; helping me until my blessings overflow. Your grace and mercy will certainly follow me for the rest of my life, and I’ll remain in Your presence, oh Yahweh, forever.

24[1-5] A Hymn of David. The earth is Yahweh’s, and everything it is filled with; the whole world, and all those that live in it. For God has founded it on the seas, and established it on the ocean floor. Who will ascend into the hill of Yahweh? Or who will stand in the Holy Sanctuary? The One who has clean hands, and an innocent heart; that hasn’t been arrogant, or made lying promises. The One who will receive the blessing from Yahweh, and goodness from the God who saves.

     [6-10] This is the generation of those that seek the Savior, that seek Your face, oh Jacob. Selah! Open the gates; open up the doors of eternity; and the glorious Savior will come in. Who is this glorious Savior? Yahweh, strong and mighty; Yahweh, victorious in crusades. Open the gates; open up the doors of eternity; and the glorious Savior will come in. Who is this glorious Savior? Yahweh, Leader of the heavenly hosts, is the glorious Savior. Selah!

    25[1-5] A Hymn of David. Oh Yahweh, I lift up my soul to You. Oh my God, I trust in You: Don’t let me be ashamed, don’t let my enemies triumph over me. Yes, let none that pray to You be ashamed; only let those who are immoral and without excuse be ashamed. Show me Your paths, oh Yahweh; teach me Your ways. Lead me in Your truth, and teach me: for You are the God who saves me; I pray to You all day long.

     [6-10] Remember, oh Yahweh, Your tender mercies and Your love; which are everlasting. Don’t remember the sins of my youth, nor my rebellions: according to Your mercy, remember me for Your goodness’ sake, oh Yahweh. Yahweh, You are the Good and Righteous One, who teaches the sinful in Your way. You guide those who have humility in their good judgments, and teach them the way of godliness. All the ways of Yahweh are mercy and truth to those that keep the testaments of the covenants.

     [11-16] For Your Name’s sake, oh Yahweh, forgive my sins; for they are too many to count. Who are those that respect Yahweh? Yahweh, You’ll teach them in the way You choose. Their souls will prosper; and their children will inherit the earth. Yahweh, Your secrets are with those that respect You, who reveals to them the truths of the covenant. My eyes are forever looking toward Yahweh; for You’ll bring me out of trouble. Turn to me, and have mercy on me; for I am lonely and abused.

     [17-22] The troubles of my heart are multiplied: oh Yahweh, bring me out of my distresses. See all my misery and my pain; and forgive all my sins. Consider my many enemies; who hate me with a cruel hatred. Oh keep my soul, and save me: Don’t let me be ashamed; for I put my trust in You. Let integrity and honesty save me; for I minister to You. Redeem Your people, oh God, out of all their troubles.

26[1-7] A Hymn of David. Judge me, oh Yahweh; for I’ve walked in my integrity: I’ve trusted in You so I won’t slip up. Watch me, oh Yahweh, and prove me; test my mind and my heart. For I see Your eternal love, and I walk in Your truth. I haven’t sat with arrogant people, nor do I go with lying ones. I hate the gatherings of evildoers; and I won’t sit with unrepentant sinners. I’ll wash my hands in innocency: so I may come around Your altar, oh Yahweh: So that I can publish with a voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wondrous acts.

     [8-12] Yahweh, I’ve loved the environment of Your House of God, and the place where You are made known. Don’t collect my soul with the sinful, or take my life with bloodthirsty people, whose hands are full of mischief and bribery. As for me, I’ll walk in my integrity, so free me and be merciful to me. My feet stand in a holy place: I’ll bless Yahweh God in the congregation of the people.

     27[1-5] A Hymn of David. Yahweh is my light and the One who saves me; so who should I fear?  Yahweh is the strength of my life; so what should I be afraid of? When the sinful, even my enemies and those who come against me, came to attack my body, they stumbled and fell. Though many should come against me, my heart won’t fear: though disputes should rise against me, in this I’ll be confident: I’ve desired of Yahweh one thing and that I’ll seek after; that I can come into the House of God everyday of my life, to ask and to see the loveliness of Yahweh God in the House of God. For in the time of trouble You’ll hide me in Your shelter: in the safe haven of Your House of God, You’ll hide me and will set me up on a rock.

     [6-11] And when I am lifted up above my enemies who surround me, I’ll offer in Your House of God, offerings of joy; I’ll sing, yes, I’ll sing praises to Yahweh. Listen, oh Yahweh, when I cry aloud: have mercy also on me, and answer me. When You said, Seek my face; my heart said to You, Your face, oh Yahweh, I’ll seek. Don’t hide Your face far from me; Don’t put the one who worship’s You away in anger: You’ve been my help; Don’t leave me, or give up on me, oh God, for You are the One who saves me. When my parents give up on me, then Yahweh will take me up. Teach me Your way, oh Yahweh, and lead me in a plain path, because of my enemies.

     [12-14] Don’t hand me over to the will of my enemies: for false witnesses have risen up against me, along with those who speak cruelly of me. I would have given up, if I hadn’t believed I would see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living. Have courage and wait on Yahweh, and God will strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on Yahweh.

     28[1-5] A Hymn of David. Oh Yahweh, my rock, I’ll cry to You: Don’t be silent to me, because if You are, I’ll be just like those that are buried in a grave. Listen to the sound of my prayer when I cry to You, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy House of God. Don’t lead me away with the sinful, who speak peacefully to their neighbors, yet with lies and mischief in their hearts. Punish them for what they’ve done, according to all the evil things they’ve done: reward them for their actions; give them just what they deserve; because they don’t respect what You’ve done or the creations of the hands of Yahweh, destroy them forever.

     [6-9] Blessed be Yahweh, because You’ve heard the sound of my prayer. Yahweh is my strength and my defense; my heart trusted in You, and I am helped: so my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song I’ll praise You. Yahweh, You are the strength of Your people, and the saving strength of Your anointed. Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance: provide for them and uphold them forever.

     29[1-5] A Hymn of David. Give to Yahweh, You, who are strong, give to Yahweh, the glory of your strength. Give to Yahweh the glory due to the Name of God; worship Yahweh in the loveliness of holiness. The voice of Yahweh is heard across the oceans: the God of glory rumbles, echoing over the seas. The voice of Yahweh is strong and majestic. The voice of Yahweh snaps the cedars into; yes, Yahweh snaps the cedars of Lebanon completely into.

     [6-11] Yahweh makes the volcanoes erupt. The voice of Yahweh spews fiery flames. The voice of Yahweh shakes the desert; the wilderness rumbles. The voice of Yahweh makes the doe to bear, and unclothes the forests, and everyone tells of the glory of God in the House of God. Yahweh rules over the waves of the sea; yes, oh Yahweh sits a Savior forever. Yahweh, You give strength to Your people; Yahweh, You bless Your people with peace.

     30 [1-6]A Hymn sung at the dedication of the house of David. I’ll worship You, oh Yahweh; for You’ve held me up, and haven’t allowed my enemies to celebrate over me. Oh Yahweh my God, I cried to You, and You’ve healed me. Oh Yahweh, You’ve raised up my soul from death: You’ve kept me alive, that I shouldn’t be buried in the grave. Sing to Yahweh, You people of God, and give thanks when you remember the holiness of God. For God’s anger lasts only a little while; but in God’s grace is life: tears may last through the night, but joy comes with the new dawn. In my prosperity I said, I’ll never be upset.

     [7] Yahweh, by Your grace You’ve made my mountain to stand strong: You hid Your face, and I was troubled. I cried to You and prayed, oh Yahweh: What profit is there in my death, when I die? Shall the dust praise You? Will it declare Your truth? Listen, oh Yahweh, and have mercy on my soul: Yahweh, help me. You’ve turned my sadness into dancing: You’ve taken my mourning clothes from me, and strengthened me with gladness; to the end that I can sing praise to You when I am made known, and I won’t be silent. Oh Yahweh my God, I’ll give thanks to You forever.
