Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stand in the way of sinners,nor sit in the seat of scoffers;
1:2 but his delight is in Yahweh’s law. On his law he meditates day and night.
- 2:1 Why do the nations rage,
- and the peoples plot a vain thing?
- 2:2 The kings of the earth take a stand,
- and the rulers take counsel together,
- against Yahweh, and against his Anointed, saying,
- 2:3 “Let’s break their bonds apart,
- and cast their cords from us.”
- 2:4 He who sits in the heavens will laugh.
- The Lord will have them in derision.
- 2:5 Then he will speak to them in his anger,
- and terrify them in his wrath:
- 2:6 “Yet I have set my King on my holy hill of Zion.”
- 2:7 I will tell of the decree.
- Yahweh said to me, “You are my son.
- Today I have become your father.
- 2:8 Ask of me, and I will give the nations for your inheritance,
- the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
- 2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron.
- You shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
- 2:10 Now therefore be wise, you kings.
- Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
- 2:11 Serve Yahweh with fear,
- and rejoice with trembling.
- 2:12 Give sincere homage to the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
- for his wrath will soon be kindled.
- Blessed are all those who take refuge in him.
A Psalm by David, when he fled from Absalom his son.
- 3:1 Yahweh, how my adversaries have increased!
- Many are those who rise up against me.
- 3:2 Many there are who say of my soul,
- “There is no help for him in God.”
- 3:3 But you, Yahweh, are a shield around me,
- my glory, and the one who lifts up my head.
- 3:4 I cry to Yahweh with my voice,
- and he answers me out of his holy hill.
- 3:5 I laid myself down and slept.
- I awakened; for Yahweh sustains me.
- 3:6 I will not be afraid of tens of thousands of people
- who have set themselves against me on every side.
- 3:7 Arise, Yahweh!
- Save me, my God!
- For you have struck all of my enemies on the cheek bone.
- You have broken the teeth of the wicked.
- 3:8 Salvation belongs to Yahweh.
- Your blessing be on your people.
Have a Nice Sunday Everyone!
