Day 118 of 365 – April 28 - Chronological Bible

Psalm 76

Who Can Stand Before You?


To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of Asaph. A Song.


In Judah God is known;

his name is great in Israel.

His abode has been established in Salem,

his dwelling place in Zion.

There he broke the flashing arrows,

the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. Selah


Glorious are you,

more majestic than the mountains of prey.

The stouthearted were stripped of their spoil;

they sank into sleep;

all the men of war were

unable to use their hands.

At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,

both rider and horse lay stunned.

But you, you are to be feared!

Who can stand before you when once your anger is roused?

From the heavens you uttered judgment;

the earth feared and was still,

when God arose to establish judgment,

to save all the humble of the earth. Selah

Surely the wrath of man shall praise you;

the remnant of wrath you will put on like a belt.


Make your vows to the Lord your God and perform them;

let all around him bring gifts

to him who is to be feared,

who cuts off the spirit of princes,

who is to be feared by the kings of the earth.


Psalm 82

Rescue the Weak and Needy


A Psalm of Asaph.


God has taken his place in the divine council;

in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:


“How long will you judge unjustly

and show partiality to the wicked? Selah

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless;

maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.

Rescue the weak and the needy;

deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

They have neither knowledge nor understanding,

they walk about in darkness;

all the foundations of the earth are shaken.


I said, “You are gods,

sons of the Most High, all of you;

nevertheless, like men you shall die,

and fall like any prince.”


Arise, O God, judge the earth;

for you shall inherit all the nations!


Psalm 84

My Soul Longs for the Courts of the Lord


To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah.


How lovely is your dwelling place,

O Lord of hosts!

My soul longs, yes, faints

for the courts of the Lord;

my heart and flesh sing for joy

to the living God.

Even the sparrow finds a home,

and the swallow a nest for herself,

where she may lay her young,

at your altars,

O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

Blessed are those who dwell in your house,

ever singing your praise! Selah


Blessed are those whose strength is in you,

in whose heart are the highways to Zion.

As they go through the Valley of Baca

they make it a place of springs;

the early rain also covers it with pools.

They go from strength to strength;

each one appears before God in Zion.


O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;

give ear, O God of Jacob!  Selah

Behold our shield, O God;

look on the face of your anointed!


For a day in your courts is better

than a thousand elsewhere.

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God

than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;

the Lord bestows favor and honor.

No good thing does he withhold

from those who walk uprightly.


O Lord of hosts,

blessed is the one who trusts in you!


Psalm 90

BOOK FOUR

From Everlasting to Everlasting


A Prayer of Moses, the man of God.


Lord, you have been our dwelling place

in all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth,

or ever you had formed the earth and the world,

from everlasting to everlasting you are God.


You return man to dust and say,

“Return, O children of man!”

For a thousand years in your sight

are but as yesterday when it is past,

or as a watch in the night.

You sweep them away as with a flood;

they are like a dream,

like grass that is renewed in the morning:

in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;

in the evening it fades and withers.


For we are brought to an end by your anger;

by your wrath we are dismayed.

You have set our iniquities before you,

our secret sins in the light of your presence.

For all our days pass away under your wrath;

we bring our years to an end like a sigh.

The years of our life are seventy,

or even by reason of strength eighty;

yet their span is but toil and trouble;

they are soon gone, and we fly away.

Who considers the power of your anger,

and your wrath according to the fear of you?

So teach us to number our days

that we may get a heart of wisdom.


Return, O Lord! How long?

Have pity on your servants!

Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,

that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,

and for as many years as we have seen evil.

Let your work be shown to your servants,

and your glorious power to their children.


Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,

and establish the work of our hands upon us;

yes, establish the work of our hands!


Psalm 92

How Great Are Your Works


A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.


It is good to give thanks to the Lord,

to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

to declare your steadfast love in the morning,

and your faithfulness by night,

to the music of the lute and the harp,

to the melody of the lyre.


For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work;

at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

How great are your works, O Lord!

Your thoughts are very deep!

The stupid man cannot know;

the fool cannot understand this:

that though the wicked sprout like grass

and all evildoers flourish,

they are doomed to destruction forever;


But you, O Lord, are on high forever.


For behold, your enemies, O Lord,

for behold, your enemies shall perish;

all evildoers shall be scattered.

But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;

you have poured over me fresh oil.

My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;

my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.


The righteous flourish like the palm tree

and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

They are planted in the house of the Lord;

they flourish in the courts of our God.

They still bear fruit in old age;

they are ever full of sap and green,

to declare that the Lord is upright;

he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.


Psalm 112

The Righteous Will Never Be Moved


Praise the Lord!


Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,

who greatly delights in his commandments!


His offspring will be mighty in the land;

the generation of the upright will be blessed.

Wealth and riches are in his house,

and his righteousness endures forever.

Light dawns in the darkness for the upright;

he is gracious, merciful, and righteous.

It is well with the man who deals generously and lends;

who conducts his affairs with justice.


For the righteous will never be moved;

he will be remembered forever.

He is not afraid of bad news;

his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

His heart is steady; he will not be afraid,

until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.

He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor;

his righteousness endures forever;

his horn is exalted in honor.


The wicked man sees it and is angry;

he gnashes his teeth and melts away;

the desire of the wicked will perish!


Psalm 115

To Your Name Give Glory


Not to us, O Lord, not to us,

but to your name give glory,

for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!


Why should the nations say,

“Where is their God?”

Our God is in the heavens;

he does all that he pleases.

Their idols are silver and gold,

the work of human hands.

They have mouths, but do not speak;

eyes, but do not see.

They have ears, but do not hear;

noses, but do not smell.

They have hands, but do not feel;

feet, but do not walk;

and they do not make a sound in their throat.

Those who make them become like them;

so do all who trust in them.


O Israel, trust in the Lord!

He is their help and their shield.

O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord!

He is their help and their shield.

You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!

He is their help and their shield.


The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us;

he will bless the house of Israel;

he will bless the house of Aaron;

he will bless those who fear the Lord,

both the small and the great.


May the Lord give you increase,

you and your children!

May you be blessed by the Lord,

who made heaven and earth!


The heavens are the Lord’s heavens,

but the earth he has given to the children of man.

The dead do not praise the Lord,

nor do any who go down into silence.

But we will bless the Lord

from this time forth and forevermore.


Praise the Lord!
