MORNING PSALM 108

1   My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make melody.
Awake, my soul!
2   Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn.
3   I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples,
and I will sing praises to you among the nations.
4   For your steadfast love is higher than the heavens,
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

5   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,
and let your glory be over all the earth.
6   Give victory with your right hand, and answer me,
so that those whom you love may be rescued.

7   God has promised in his sanctuary:
“With exultation I will divide up Shechem,
and portion out the Vale of Succoth.
8   Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
Ephraim is my helmet;
Judah is my scepter.
9   Moab is my wash-basin;
on Edom I hurl my shoe;
over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

10  Who will bring me to the fortified city?
Who will lead me to Edom?
11  Have you not rejected us, O God?
You do not go out, O God, with our armies.
12  O grant us help against the foe,
for human help is worthless.
13  With God we shall do valiantly;
it is he who will tread down our foes.

EVENING PSALM 23

1   The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2        He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
3        he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths
for his name’s sake.

4   Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff —
they comfort me.

5   You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6   Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
my whole life long.
