Today’s Psalms

I have a Sunday morning habit. I read through 5 psalms*. I post key verses from these five psalms on Sunday mornings on Facebook. So here are “Today’s Psalms”

Psalm 27:1, 13-14

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
    of whom shall I be afraid?

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living!
Wait for the Lord;
    be strong, and let your heart take courage;
    wait for the Lord!

Psalm 57:9-11

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
    I will sing praises to you among the nations.
For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!

Psalm 87:1-2

On the holy mount stands the city he founded;
   the Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwelling places of Jacob.

 

Psalm 117

Praise the Lord, all nations!
Extol him, all peoples!

For great is his steadfast love toward us,
    and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 147:1

Praise the Lord!
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
    for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

* A psalm is a sacred hymn or song, particularly those contained in the biblical book of Psalms – the Old Testament book of prayers/songs, many of which were written by David about 1000 years before Jesus’ birth.
