“1) The fool hath said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt; they have done abominable works; there is none that doeth good.
2) The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand and seek God.
3) They have all turned aside; they are all together become filthy. There is none that doeth good; no, not one.
4) Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread and call not upon the Lord?
5) There were they in great fear, for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6) Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.
7) Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When the Lord bringeth back His people from captivity, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.”
“1) How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord? For ever? How long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me?
2) How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
3) Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4) lest mine enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5) But I have trusted in Thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation.
6) I will sing unto the Lord, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.”
“1) Help, Lord, for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
2) They speak vanity every one with his neighbor; with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
3) The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things,
4) who have said, “With our tongue, we will prevail; our lips are our own; who is lord over us?”
5) “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise,” saith the Lord; “I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.”
6) The words of the Lord are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7) Thou shalt keep them, O Lord; Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
8) The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.”
“14) But I will hope continually, and will yet praise You more and more.
15) My mouth will show forth Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
16) I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of Your righteousness, even of Yours only.
17) O God, You have taught me from my youth: and until now have I declared Your wondrous works.
18) Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed Your strength to this generation, and Your power to every one that is to come.
19) Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, who has done great things: O God, who is like You!
20) You, who has showed me great and sore troubles, will make me alive again, and will bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
21) You will increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
22) I will also praise You with the psaltery, even Your truth, O my God: to You will I sing with the harp, O You Holy One of Israel.
23) My lips will greatly rejoice when I sing to You; and my soul, which You have redeemed.
24) My tongue also will talk of Your righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.”
“1) In the Lord I put my trust; how say ye to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain,
2) for lo, the wicked bend their bow and make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart;
3) if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
4) The Lord is in His holy temple! The Lord’s throne is in heaven! His eyes behold; His eyelids test the children of men!
5) The Lord tries the righteous; but the wicked and him that loves violence, His soul hates.
6) Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
7) For the righteous Lord loves righteousness; His countenance does behold the upright.”
“11) I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
12) I will meditate also of all Your work, and talk of Your doings.
13) Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?
14) You are the God that does wonders: You have declared Your strength among the people.”
Ephesians 3:20–21 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
