Reading for Jun 20 (KJV)

PSA 37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it].

PSA 37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

PSA 37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

PSA 37:37 Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.

PSA 37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

PSA 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble.

PSA 37:40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

PSA 38:1 O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

PSA 38:2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

PSA 38:3 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.

PSA 38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

PSA 38:5 My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness.

PSA 38:6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.

PSA 38:7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh.

PSA 38:8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

PSA 38:9 Lord, all my desire [is] before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

PSA 38:10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

PSA 38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.

PSA 38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

PSA 38:13 But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] openeth not his mouth.

PSA 38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs.

PSA 38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.

PSA 38:16 For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify [themselves] against me.

PSA 38:17 For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually before me.

PSA 38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

PSA 38:19 But mine enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

PSA 38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow [the thing that] good [is].

PSA 38:21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

PSA 38:22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

PSA 39:1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

PSA 39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, [even] from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

PSA 39:3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: [then] spake I with my tongue,

PSA 39:4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am].

PSA 39:5 Behold, thou hast made my days [as] an handbreadth; and mine age [is] as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state [is] altogether vanity. Selah.

PSA 39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.

PSA 39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope [is] in thee.

PSA 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.

PSA 39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst [it].

PSA 39:10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.

PSA 39:11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man [is] vanity. Selah.

PSA 39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I [am] a stranger with thee, [and] a sojourner, as all my fathers [were].

PSA 39:13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

PSA 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

PSA 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings.

PSA 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

PSA 40:4 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

PSA 40:5 Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.

PSA 40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.

PSA 40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is] written of me,

PSA 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is] within my heart.

PSA 40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

PSA 40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

PSA 40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

PSA 40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

PSA 40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.

PSA 40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

PSA 40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

PSA 40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.

PSA 40:17 But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the Lord thinketh upon me: thou [art] my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

PSA 41:1 Blessed [is] he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

PSA 41:2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; [and] he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

PSA 41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

PSA 41:4 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.

PSA 41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?

PSA 41:6 And if he come to see [me], he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; [when] he goeth abroad, he telleth [it].

PSA 41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.

PSA 41:8 An evil disease, [say they], cleaveth fast unto him: and [now] that he lieth he shall rise up no more.

PSA 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.

PSA 41:10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.

PSA 41:11 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.

PSA 41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.

PSA 41:13 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.

PSA 42:1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

PSA 42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

PSA 42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where [is] thy God?

PSA 42:4 When I remember these [things], I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

PSA 42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and [why] art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him [for] the help of his countenance.

PSA 42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

PSA 42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

PSA 42:8 [Yet] the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song [shall be] with me, [and] my prayer unto the God of my life.

PSA 42:9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

PSA 42:10 [As] with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where [is] thy God?

PSA 42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.

PSA 43:1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

PSA 43:2 For thou [art] the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
