    In God's Presence
    Psalms 1
    The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

    1 Blessed is the man
    Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
    2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.
    3 He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
    And whatever he does shall prosper.

    4 The ungodly are not so,
    But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
    5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
    Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

    6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
    But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

    Psalm 2

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

    2 Why do the nations rage,
    And the people plot a vain thing?
    2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
    And the rulers take counsel together,
    Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
    3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces
    And cast away Their cords from us.”

    4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
    The Lord shall hold them in derision.
    5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
    And distress them in His deep displeasure:
    6 “Yet I have set My King
    On My holy hill of Zion.”

    7 “I will declare the decree:
    The Lord has said to Me,
    ‘You are My Son,
    Today I have begotten You.
    8 Ask of Me, and I will give You
    The nations for Your inheritance,
    And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
    9 You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron;
    You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”

    10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
    Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
    11 Serve the Lord with fear,
    And rejoice with trembling.
    12 Kiss the Son, lest [c] He be angry,
    And you perish in the way,
    When His wrath is kindled but a little.
    Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

    Psalm 2:9 Following Masoretic Text and Targum; Septuagint, Syriac, and Vulgate read rule (compare Revelation 2:27).
    Psalm 2:12 Septuagint and Vulgate read Embrace discipline; Targum reads Receive instruction.
    Psalm 2:12 Septuagint reads the Lord.

    Psalm 3

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Lord Helps His Troubled People
    A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son.

    3 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 4

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    The Safety of the Faithful
    To the Chief Musician. With stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

    4 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
    You have relieved me in my distress;
    Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

    2 How long, O you sons of men,
    Will you turn my glory to shame?
    How long will you love worthlessness
    And seek falsehood? Selah
    3 But know that the Lord has set apart[a] for Himself him who is godly;
    The Lord will hear when I call to Him.

    4 Be angry, and do not sin.
    Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah
    5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
    And put your trust in the Lord.

    6 There are many who say,
    “Who will show us any good?”
    Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
    7 You have put gladness in my heart,
    More than in the season that their grain and wine increased.
    8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
    For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

    Psalm 5

    New King James Version (NKJV)
    A Prayer for Guidance
    To the Chief Musician. With flutes.[a] A Psalm of David.

    5 Give ear to my words, O Lord,
    Consider my meditation.
    2 Give heed to the voice of my cry,
    My King and my God,
    For to You I will pray.
    3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord;
    In the morning I will direct it to You,
    And I will look up.

    4 For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness,
    Nor shall evil dwell with You.
    5 The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;
    You hate all workers of iniquity.
    6 You shall destroy those who speak falsehood;
    The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

    7 But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;
    In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.
    8 Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
    Make Your way straight before my face.

    9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
    Their inward part is destruction;
    Their throat is an open tomb;
    They flatter with their tongue.
    10 Pronounce them guilty, O God!
    Let them fall by their own counsels;
    Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
    For they have rebelled against You.

    11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
    Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
    Let those also who love Your name
    Be joyful in You.
    12 For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
    With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
