MORNING PSALM 96

1   O sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all the earth.
2   Sing to the LORD, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.
3   Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples.
4   For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be revered above all gods.
5   For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
but the LORD made the heavens.
6   Honor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7   Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
8   Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
bring an offering, and come into his courts.
9   Worship the LORD in holy splendor;
tremble before him, all the earth.

10  Say among the nations, “The LORD is king!
The world is firmly established; it shall never be moved.
He will judge the peoples with equity.”
11  Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
12       let the field exult, and everything in it.
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
13       before the LORD; for he is coming,
for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with his truth.

EVENING PSALM 132

1   O LORD, remember in David’s favor
all the hardships he endured;
2   how he swore to the LORD
and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob,
3   “I will not enter my house
or get into my bed;
4   I will not give sleep to my eyes
or slumber to my eyelids,
5   until I find a place for the LORD,
a dwelling-place for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

6   We heard of it in Ephrathah;
we found it in the fields of Jaar.
7   “Let us go to his dwelling place;
let us worship at his footstool.”

8   Rise up, O LORD, and go to your resting place,
you and the ark of your might.
9   Let your priests be clothed with righteousness,
and let your faithful shout for joy.
10  For your servant David’s sake
do not turn away the face of your anointed one.

11  The LORD swore to David a sure oath
from which he will not turn back:
“One of the sons of your body
I will set on your throne.
12  If your sons keep my covenant
and my decrees that I shall teach them,
their sons also, forevermore,
shall sit on your throne.”

13  For the LORD has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his habitation:
14  “This is my resting place forever;
here I will reside, for I have desired it.
15  I will abundantly bless its provisions;
I will satisfy its poor with bread.
16  Its priests I will clothe with salvation,
and its faithful will shout for joy.
17  There I will cause a horn to sprout up for David;
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one.
18  His enemies I will clothe with disgrace,
but on him, his crown will gleam.”
