"For the Leader; [a Psalm] of the sons of Korah; upon Alamoth. A Song. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change, and though the mountains be moved into the heart of the seas; Though the waters thereof roar and foam, though the mountains shake at the swelling thereof. Selah! There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God, the holiest dwelling-place of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God shall help her, at the approach of morning. Nations were in tumult, kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah! Come, behold the works of the Lord, who hath made desolations in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the chariots in the fire. 'Let be, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.' The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah! Psalm 46

PSALM 116    

 "I love that the Lord should hear my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him all my days. The cords of death compassed me, and the straits of the nether-world got hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow. But I called upon the name of the Lord: 'I beseech thee, O Lord, deliver my soul.' Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is compassionate. The Lord preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me. Return, O my soul, unto thy rest; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling. I shall walk before the Lord in the lands of the living. I trusted even when I spoke: 'I am greatly afflicted.' I said in my haste: 'All men are liars.' How can I repay unto the Lord all His bountiful dealings toward me? I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. My vows will I pay unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all His people. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. I beseech Thee, O Lord, for I am Thy servant; I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bands. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows unto the Lord, yea, in the presence of all His people; In the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!" Psalms 116





PSALM 121    

A Song of Ascents. I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: from whence shall my help come? My help cometh from the God, who made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, He that keepeth Israel doth neither slumber nor sleep.The God is thy keeper; the God is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The God shall keep thee from all evil; He shall keep thy soul. The God shall guard thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth and for ever. Psalm 121


PSALM 122    

"A Song of Ascents; of David. I rejoiced when they said unto me: 'Let us go unto the house of the God. ' Our feet are standing within thy gates, Jerusalem; Jerusalem, that art builded as a city that is compact together; Whither the tribes went up, even the tribes of the God, as a testimony unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the God. For there were set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may they prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say: 'Peace be within thee.' For the sake of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good." Psalm 122



PSALM 128    

"A Song of Ascents. Happy is every one that feareth the God, that walketh in His ways. When thou eatest the labour of thy hands, happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine, in the innermost parts of thy house; thy children like olive plants, round about thy table. Behold, surely thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the God. The God bless thee out of Zion; and see thou the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life; And see thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel!" Psalm 128


PSALM 133    

"A Song of Ascents; of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, coming down upon the beard; even Aaron's beard, that cometh down upon the collar of his arments; Like the dew of Hermon, that cometh down upon the mountains of Zion; for there the God commanded the blessing, even life for ever." Psalm 133
