Enjoy.---------------------------------------------PSALM 36 1   Transgression speaks to the wicked 
          deep in their hearts; 
     there is no fear of God 
          before their eyes. 
2   For they flatter themselves in their own eyes 
          that their iniquity cannot be found out and hated. 
3   The words of their mouths are mischief and deceit; 
          they have ceased to act wisely and do good. 
4   They plot mischief while on their beds; 
          they are set on a way that is not good; 
          they do not reject evil.
5   Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, 
          your faithfulness to the clouds. 
6   Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, 
          your judgments are like the great deep; 
          you save humans and animals alike, O LOR…

PSALM 4 1   Answer me when I call, O God of my right!            You gave me room when I was in distress.            Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.
2   How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame?            How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies? Selah  3   But know that the LORD has set apart the faithful for himself;            the LORD hears when I call to him.
4   When you are disturbed, do not sin;            ponder it on your beds, and be silent. Selah  5   Offer right sacrifices,            and put your trust in the LORD.
6   There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!            Let the light of your face shine on us, O LORD!”…

     Praise the LORD, O my soul! 
2   I will praise the LORD as long as I live; 
          I will sing praises to my God all my life long.
3   Do not put your trust in princes, 
          in mortals, in whom there is no help. 
4   When their breath departs, they return to the earth; 
          on that very day their plans perish.
5   Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, 
          whose hope is in the LORD their God, 
6   who made heaven and earth, 
          the sea, and all that is in them; 
     who keeps faith forever; 
7        who executes justice for the oppressed; 
          who gives food to the hungry.

PSALM 97 1   The LORD is king! Let the earth rejoice; 
          let the many coastlands be glad! 
2   Clouds and thick darkness are all around him; 
          righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. 
3   Fire goes before him, 
          and consumes his adversaries on every side. 
4   His lightnings light up the world; 
          the earth sees and trembles. 
5   The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, 
          before the Lord of all the earth.
6   The heavens proclaim his righteousness; 
          and all the peoples behold his glory. 
7   All worshipers of images are put to shame, 
          those who make their boast in worthless idols; 
          all gods bow d…

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;

PSALM 47 
1   Clap your hands, all you peoples;
          shout to God with loud songs of joy.
2   For the LORD, the Most High, is awesome,
          a great king over all the earth.
3   He subdued peoples under us,
          and nations under our feet.
4   He chose our heritage for us,
          the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah

5   God has gone up with a shout,
          the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
6   Sing praises to God, sing praises;
          sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7   For God is the king of all the earth;
          sing praises with a psalm.

8   God is king over the nations;
          God sits on his holy throne.
9   The princes of the pe…
