MORNING PSALM 148

1   Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise him in the heights!
2   Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his host!

3   Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, all you shining stars!
4   Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!

5   Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for he commanded and they were created.
6   He established them forever and ever;
he fixed their bounds, which cannot be passed.

7   Praise the Lord from the earth,
you sea monsters and all deeps,
8   fire and hail, snow and frost,
stormy wind fulfilling his command!

9   Mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars!
10  Wild animals and all cattle,
creeping things and flying birds!

11  Kings of the earth and all peoples,
princes and all rulers of the earth!
12  Young men and women alike,
old and young together!

13  Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his glory is above earth and heaven.
14  He has raised up a horn for his people,
praise for all his faithful,
for the people of Israel who are close to him.
Praise the Lord!

EVENING PSALM 6

1   O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger,
or discipline me in your wrath.
2   Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am languishing;
O LORD, heal me, for my bones are shaking with terror.
3   My soul also is struck with terror,
while you, O LORD — how long?

4   Turn, O LORD, save my life;
deliver me for the sake of your steadfast love.
5   For in death there is no remembrance of you;
in Sheol who can give you praise?

6   I am weary with my moaning;
every night I flood my bed with tears;
I drench my couch with my weeping.
7   My eyes waste away because of grief;
they grow weak because of all my foes.

8   Depart from me, all you workers of evil,
for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping.
9   The LORD has heard my supplication;
the LORD accepts my prayer.
10  All my enemies shall be ashamed and struck with terror;
they shall turn back, and in a moment be put to shame.
