MORNING PSALM 147:12-20

12  Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13  For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
he blesses your children within you.
14  He grants peace within your borders;
he fills you with the finest of wheat.
15  He sends out his command to the earth;
his word runs swiftly.
16  He gives snow like wool;
he scatters frost like ashes.
17  He hurls down hail like crumbs —
who can stand before his cold?
18  He sends out his word, and melts them;
he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow.
19  He declares his word to Jacob,
his statutes and ordinances to Israel.
20  He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
they do not know his ordinances.
Praise the Lord!

EVENING PSALM 26

1   Vindicate me, O LORD,
for I have walked in my integrity,
and I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
2   Prove me, O LORD, and try me;
test my heart and mind.
3   For your steadfast love is before my eyes,
and I walk in faithfulness to you.

4   I do not sit with the worthless,
nor do I consort with hypocrites;
5   I hate the company of evildoers,
and will not sit with the wicked.

6   I wash my hands in innocence,
and go around your altar, O LORD,
7   singing aloud a song of thanksgiving,
and telling all your wondrous deeds.

8   O LORD, I love the house in which you dwell,
and the place where your glory abides.
9   Do not sweep me away with sinners,
nor my life with the bloodthirsty,
10  those in whose hands are evil devices,
and whose right hands are full of bribes.

11  But as for me, I walk in my integrity;
redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12  My foot stands on level ground;
in the great congregation I will bless the LORD.\
