Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

1:1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the wicked, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of scorners;

1:2But his delight is in Jehovah's law, and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

1:3And he is as a tree planted by brooks of water, which giveth its fruit in its season, and whose leaf fadeth not; and all that he doeth prospereth.

1:4The wicked are not so; but are as the chaff which the wind driveth away.

1:5Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

1:6For Jehovah knoweth the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked shall perish.

2:1Why are the nations in tumultuous agitation, and why do the peoples meditate a vain thing?

2:2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the princes plot together, against Jehovah and against his anointed:

2:3Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their cords from us!

2:4He that dwelleth in the heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall have them in derision.

2:5Then will he speak to them in his anger, and in his fierce displeasure will he terrify them:

2:6And *I* have anointed my king upon Zion, the hill of my holiness.

2:7I will declare the decree: Jehovah hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; *I* this day have begotten thee.

2:8Ask of me, and I will give thee nations for an inheritance, and for thy possession the ends of the earth:

2:9Thou shalt break them with a sceptre of iron, as a potter's vessel thou shalt dash them in pieces.

2:10And now, O kings, be ye wise, be admonished, ye judges of the earth.

2:11Serve Jehovah with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

2:12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, though his anger burn but a little. Blessed are all who have their trust in him.

3:1Jehovah, how many are they that trouble me, many they that rise up against me!

3:2Many say of my soul, There is no salvation for him in God. Selah.

3:3But thou, Jehovah, art a shield about me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head.

3:4With my voice will I call to Jehovah, and he will answer me from the hill of his holiness. Selah.

3:5I laid me down and slept; I awaked, for Jehovah sustaineth me.

3:6I will not fear for myriads of the people that have set themselves against me round about.

3:7Arise, Jehovah; save me, my God! For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheekbone, thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked.

3:8Salvation is of Jehovah; thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
