Psalms Chapters 29-31
Psalms Chapter 29
1: Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
2: Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
3: The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
4: The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
5: The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
6: He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
7: The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
8: The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
9: The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
10: The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.
11: The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.
Psalms Chapter 30
1: I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
2: O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
3: O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
4: Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
5: For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
6: And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
7: LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
8: I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
9: What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
10: Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
11: Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
12: To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
Psalms Chapter 31
1: In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
2: Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
3: For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
4: Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.
5: Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
6: I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.
7: I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
8: And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
9: Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
10: For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
11: I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.
12: I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
13: For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
14: But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.
15: My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16: Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.
17: Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18: Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19: Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
20: Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
21: Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
22: For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
23: O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
24: Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
