Today’s Psalms

Here are selected verses from five psalms. Today is November 3, so these will be from Psalm 3, 33; 63, 93, 123.

Psalm 3:8

Salvation belongs to the Lord;
    your blessing be on your people! Selah

Psalm 33:1-4

Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!
    Praise befits the upright.
Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;
    make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!
Sing to him a new song;
    play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.

For the word of the Lord is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.

Psalm 63:3-4

Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.

 

Psalm 93:1

The Lord reigns; he is robed in majesty;
    the Lord is robed; he has put on strength as his belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.

Psalm 123:1-2

To you I lift up my eyes,
    O you who are enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants
    look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
    to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till he has mercy upon us.

If you read five psalms a day, beginning with the psalm of the day of the month and adding 30 to each psalm, you will read through the psalms in 30 days. I will often omit Psalm 119 on the 29th day (it is very long), and read that on the 31st.
