Psalm 3 -  A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.

1 LORD, how they have increased who trouble me!
Many are they who rise up against me.
2 Many are they who say of me,
“There is no help for him in God.” Selah 

3 But You, O LORD, are a shield for me,
My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
4 I cried to the LORD with my voice,
And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah 

5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
Who have set themselves against me all around. 

7 Arise, O LORD;
Save me, O my God! 
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; 
You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8 Salvation belongs to the LORD.
Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah

Psalm 38 - A Psalm of David. To bring to remembrance.

1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your wrath,
Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure!
2 For Your arrows pierce me deeply,
And Your hand presses me down. 

3 There is no soundness in my flesh
Because of Your anger, 
Nor any health in my bones 
Because of my sin.
4 For my iniquities have gone over my head;
Like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
5 My wounds are foul and festering
Because of my foolishness. 

6 I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly;
I go mourning all the day long.
7 For my loins are full of inflammation,
And there is no soundness in my flesh.
8 I am feeble and severely broken;
I groan because of the turmoil of my heart. 

9 Lord, all my desire is before You;
And my sighing is not hidden from You.
10 My heart pants, my strength fails me;
As for the light of my eyes, it also has gone from me. 

11 My loved ones and my friends stand aloof from my plague,
And my relatives stand afar off.
12 Those also who seek my life lay snares for me;
Those who seek my hurt speak of destruction, 
And plan deception all the day long. 

13 But I, like a deaf man, do not hear;
And I am like a mute who does not open his mouth.
14 Thus I am like a man who does not hear,
And in whose mouth is no response. 

15 For in You, O LORD, I hope;
You will hear, O Lord my God.
16 For I said, “Hear me, lest they rejoice over me,
Lest, when my foot slips, they exalt themselves against me.” 

17 For I am ready to fall,
And my sorrow is continually before me.
18 For I will declare my iniquity;
I will be in anguish over my sin.
19 But my enemies are vigorous, and they are strong;
And those who hate me wrongfully have multiplied.
20 Those also who render evil for good,
They are my adversaries, because I follow what is good. 

21 Do not forsake me, O LORD;
O my God, be not far from me!
22 Make haste to help me,
O Lord, my salvation!

Psalm 51

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, according to Thy loving kindness, and according to the multitude of Thy mercies, blot out my transgressions.

Wash me from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sins; for I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sins are ever before me.

Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done evil before Thee. For Thou shall be justified Thy word, and blameless in Thy judgment. For I was born in iniquity and in sins did my mother conceive me.

For Thou has desired the truth, and made known to me the mysteries of Thy wisdom. Sprinkle upon me with Thy hyssop; purge me with it, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Fill me with Thy joy and gladness, and my feeble bones shall rejoice. Turn Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew within me a right spirit. Cast me not away from Thy presence, and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.

Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation and may thy glorious spirit uphold me. Then will I teach the iniquitous Thy way, and the sinners shall be converted to Thee.

Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall extol Thy righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall sing forth Thy praises.

For Thou hadst no delight in mere sacrifices; neither hadst Thou been reconciled by mere burnt offerings. The sacrifices acceptable to God are a humble spirit, and a broken heart, God despises not.

Do good to Zion, according to Thy good pleasure, and build Thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then wilt Thou be pleased with righteous sacrifices, and in whole burnt offerings. Then shall they offer bullocks upon Thine altar.

And to you belongs the praise, O God. Barekmor.

O Merciful Lord, have mercy upon us by your grace. Moriyo rahem melain oo aa darein

Psalm 63 - A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

1 O God, You are my God;
Early will I seek You; 
My soul thirsts for You; 
My flesh longs for You 
In a dry and thirsty land 
Where there is no water.
2 So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory. 

3 Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
4 Thus I will bless You while I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. 

6 When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
7 Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
8 My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me. 

9 But those who seek my life, to destroy it,
Shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword;
They shall be a portion for jackals. 

11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
Everyone who swears by Him shall glory; 
But the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped

Psalm 88

1 O LORD, God of my salvation,
I have cried out day and night before You.
2 Let my prayer come before You;
Incline Your ear to my cry. 

3 For my soul is full of troubles,
And my life draws near to the grave.
4 I am counted with those who go down to the pit;
I am like a man who has no strength,
5 Adrift among the dead,
Like the slain who lie in the grave, 
Whom You remember no more, 
And who are cut off from Your hand. 

6 You have laid me in the lowest pit,
In darkness, in the depths.
7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
And You have afflicted me with all Your waves. Selah 
8 You have put away my acquaintances far from me;
You have made me an abomination to them; 
I am shut up, and I cannot get out;
9 My eye wastes away because of affliction.

LORD, I have called daily upon You; 
I have stretched out my hands to You.
10 Will You work wonders for the dead?
Shall the dead arise and praise You? Selah 
11 Shall Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave?
Or Your faithfulness in the place of destruction?
12 Shall Your wonders be known in the dark?
And Your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? 

13 But to You I have cried out, O LORD,
And in the morning my prayer comes before You.
14 LORD, why do You cast off my soul?
Why do You hide Your face from me?
15 I have been afflicted and ready to die from my youth;
I suffer Your terrors; 
I am distraught.
16 Your fierce wrath has gone over me;
Your terrors have cut me off.
17 They came around me all day long like water;
They engulfed me altogether.
18 Loved one and friend You have put far from me,
And my acquaintances into darkness.

Psalm 143 - A Psalm of David

1 Hear my prayer, O LORD,
Give ear to my supplications! 
In Your faithfulness answer me, 
And in Your righteousness.
2 Do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight no one living is righteous. 

3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground; 
He has made me dwell in darkness, 
Like those who have long been dead.
4 Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me is distressed. 

5 I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your works; 
I muse on the work of Your hands.
6 I spread out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah 

7 Answer me speedily, O LORD;
My spirit fails! 
Do not hide Your face from me, 
Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
8 Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust; 
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, 
For I lift up my soul to You. 

9 Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies;
In You I take shelter.
10 Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God; 
Your Spirit is good. 
Lead me in the land of uprightness. 

11 Revive me, O LORD, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
12 In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
And destroy all those who afflict my soul; 
For I am Your servant.
