MORNING PSALM 54

1   Save me, O God, by your name,
and vindicate me by your might.
2   Hear my prayer, O God;
give ear to the words of my mouth.

3   For the insolent have risen against me,
the ruthless seek my life;
they do not set God before them.                              Selah

4   But surely, God is my helper;
the Lord is the upholder of my life.
5   He will repay my enemies for their evil.
In your faithfulness, put an end to them.

6   With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;
I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, for it is good.
7   For he has delivered me from every trouble,
and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.

EVENING PSALM 28

1   To you, O LORD, I call;
my rock, do not refuse to hear me,
for if you are silent to me,
I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.
2   Hear the voice of my supplication,
as I cry to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
toward your most holy sanctuary.

3   Do not drag me away with the wicked,
with those who are workers of evil,
who speak peace with their neighbors,
while mischief is in their hearts.
4   Repay them according to their work,
and according to the evil of their deeds;
repay them according to the work of their hands;
render them their due reward.
5   Because they do not regard the works of the LORD,
or the work of his hands,
he will break them down and build them up no more.

6   Blessed be the LORD,
for he has heard the sound of my pleadings.
7   The LORD is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts;
so I am helped, and my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him.

8   The LORD is the strength of his people;
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
9   O save your people, and bless your heritage;
be their shepherd, and carry them forever.
