I Will Bless the Lord

Psalm 34

King James Version (KJV)

34 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.

10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?

13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.

14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.

16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

“Hide Me Under the Shadow of Your Wings” Psalm 17

The Christian Gazette

A Prayer of David

Hear a just cause, O LORD

Attend to my cry;

Give ear to my prayer that is not from deceitful lips.

Let my vindication come from Your presence;

Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright.

You have tested my heart;

You have visited me in the night;

You have tried me and have found nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

Concerning the works of men,

By the word of Your lips,

I have kept myself from the paths of the destroyer.

Uphold my steps in Your paths,

That my footsteps may not slip.

I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God;

Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.

Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,

O You who save those who trust in You 


From those who rise up against them…

Wicked Judges Will Be Judged Psalm 58

The Christian Gazette

God, the Father watches us all everywhere. God, the Father watches us all everywhere. (Photo credit: angelofsweetbitter2009)

Do you indeed speak righteousness, you silent ones?

Do you judge uprightly, you sons of men?

No, in heart you work wickedness;

You weigh out the violence of your

hands in the earth.

The wicked are estranged from the womb;

They go astray as soon as they are

born, speaking lies.

Their poison is like the poison of a

serpent;

They are life the deaf cobra that stops

its ear,

Which will not heed the voice of

charmers,

Charming ever so skillfully.

Break their teeth in their mouths, O

God!

Break out the fangs of the young lions,

O LORD!

Let them flow away as waters which

run continually;

When he bend his bow,

Let his arrows be as if cut in pieces.

Let them be like a snail which melts

away as it goes.

Like a stillborn…
