Today’s Psalms

For your personal edification and meditation on this Lord’s Day

Psalm 10:17-18

Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless.
    Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.
18 You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed,
    so mere people can no longer terrify them.

Psalm 40:4-5

Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord,
    who have no confidence in the proud
    or in those who worship idols.
O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.
    Your plans for us are too numerous to list.
    You have no equal.
If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds,
    I would never come to the end of them.

Psalm 70:4

But may all who search for you
    be filled with joy and gladness in you.
May those who love your salvation
    repeatedly shout, “God is great!”

Psalm 100

Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
    Worship the Lordwith gladness.
    Come before him, singing with joy.
Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
    He made us, and we are his.[a]
    We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
    go into his courts with praise.
    Give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good.
    His unfailing love continues forever,
    and his faithfulness continues to each generation.

Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord!
    O Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
    to the voice of my pleas for mercy!

If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
    O Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    that you may be feared.

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
    and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
    more than watchmen for the morning,
    more than watchmen for the morning.

O Israel, hope in the Lord!
    For with the Lordthere is steadfast love,
    and with him is plentiful redemption.
And he will redeem Israel
    from all his iniquities.

  1. I’m finding great comfort and peace in these particular verses this day as I am waiting both fervently and sometimes not so fervently on a few things. Thank you for posting the Psalms on Sunday. Blessings!
    “5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
        and in his word I hope;
    6 my soul waits for the Lord
        more than watchmen for the morning,
        more than watchmen for the morning.”

    • Amen! May we all wait for the Lord. He is good. Faithful, full of love, grace and truth.
