Reading for Jun 20 (WEB)
PSA 37:34 Wait for Yahweh, and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land. When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
PSA 37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil.
PSA 37:36 But he passed away, and behold, he was not. Yes, I sought him, but he could not be found.
PSA 37:37 Mark the perfect man, and see the upright, for there is a future for the man of peace.
PSA 37:38 As for transgressors, they shall be destroyed together. The future of the wicked shall be cut off.
PSA 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from Yahweh. He is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
PSA 37:40 Yahweh helps them and rescues them. He rescues them from the wicked and saves them, because they have taken refuge in him.
PSA 38:1 A Psalm by David, for a memorial. Yahweh, don’t rebuke me in your wrath, neither chasten me in your hot displeasure.
PSA 38:2 For your arrows have pierced me, your hand presses hard on me.
PSA 38:3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of your indignation, neither is there any health in my bones because of my sin.
PSA 38:4 For my iniquities have gone over my head. As a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me.
PSA 38:5 My wounds are loathsome and corrupt because of my foolishness.
PSA 38:6 I am in pain and bowed down greatly. I go mourning all day long.

PSA 38:9 Lord, all my desire is before you. My groaning is not hidden from you.
PSA 38:10 My heart throbs. My strength fails me. As for the light of my eyes, it has also left me.
PSA 38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my plague. My kinsmen stand far away.
PSA 38:12 They also who seek after my life lay snares. Those who seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and meditate deceits all day long.
PSA 38:13 But I, as a deaf man, don’t hear. I am as a mute man who doesn’t open his mouth.
PSA 38:14 Yes, I am as a man who doesn’t hear, in whose mouth are no reproofs.
PSA 38:15 For I hope in you, Yahweh. You will answer, Lord my God.
PSA 38:16 For I said, “Don’t let them gloat over me, or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips.”
PSA 38:17 For I am ready to fall. My pain is continually before me.
PSA 38:18 For I will declare my iniquity. I will be sorry for my sin.
PSA 38:19 But my enemies are vigorous and many. Those who hate me without reason are numerous.
PSA 38:20 They who render evil for good are also adversaries to me, because I follow what is good.
PSA 38:21 Don’t forsake me, Yahweh. My God, don’t be far from me.
PSA 38:22 Hurry to help me, Lord, my salvation.
PSA 39:1 For the Chief Musician. For Jeduthun. A Psalm by David. I said, “I will watch my ways, so that I don’t sin with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked is before me.”
PSA 39:2 I was mute with silence. I held my peace, even from good. My sorrow was stirred.
PSA 39:3 My heart was hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned. I spoke with my tongue:
PSA 39:4 “Yahweh, show me my end, what is the measure of my days. Let me know how frail I am.
PSA 39:5 Behold, you have made my days hand widths. My lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely every man stands as a breath.” Selah.
PSA 39:6 “Surely every man walks like a shadow. Surely they busy themselves in vain. He heaps up, and doesn’t know who shall gather.
PSA 39:7 Now, Lord, what do I wait for? My hope is in you.
PSA 39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions. Don’t make me the reproach of the foolish.
PSA 39:9 I was mute. I didn’t open my mouth, because you did it.
PSA 39:10 Remove your scourge away from me. I am overcome by the blow of your hand.
PSA 39:11 When you rebuke and correct man for iniquity, you consume his wealth like a moth. Surely every man is but a breath.” Selah.
PSA 39:12 “Hear my prayer, Yahweh, and give ear to my cry. Don’t be silent at my tears. For I am a stranger with you, a foreigner, as all my fathers were.
PSA 39:13 Oh spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go away and exist no more.”
PSA 40:1 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David. I waited patiently for Yahweh. He turned to me, and heard my cry.
PSA 40:2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand.
PSA 40:3 He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God. Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yahweh.
PSA 40:4 Blessed is the man who makes Yahweh his trust, and doesn’t respect the proud, nor such as turn away to lies.
PSA 40:5 Many, Yahweh, my God, are the wonderful works which you have done, and your thoughts which are toward us. They can’t be declared back to you. If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be counted.
PSA 40:6 Sacrifice and offering you didn’t desire. You have opened my ears. You have not required burnt offering and sin offering.
PSA 40:7 Then I said, “Behold, I have come. It is written about me in the book in the scroll.
PSA 40:8 I delight to do your will, my God. Yes, your law is within my heart.”
PSA 40:9 I have proclaimed glad news of righteousness in the great assembly. Behold, I will not seal my lips, Yahweh, you know.
PSA 40:10 I have not hidden your righteousness within my heart. I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation. I have not concealed your loving kindness and your truth from the great assembly.
PSA 40:11 Don’t withhold your tender mercies from me, Yahweh. Let your loving kindness and your truth continually preserve me.
PSA 40:12 For innumerable evils have surrounded me. My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of my head. My heart has failed me.
PSA 40:13 Be pleased, Yahweh, to deliver me. Hurry to help me, Yahweh.
PSA 40:14 Let them be disappointed and confounded together who seek after my soul to destroy it. Let them be turned backward and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt.
PSA 40:15 Let them be desolate by reason of their shame that tell me, “Aha! Aha!”
PSA 40:16 Let all those who seek you rejoice and be glad in you. Let such as love your salvation say continually, “Let Yahweh be exalted!”
PSA 40:17 But I am poor and needy. May the Lord think about me. You are my help and my deliverer. Don’t delay, my God.
PSA 41:1 For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David. Blessed is he who considers the poor. Yahweh will deliver him in the day of evil.
PSA 41:2 Yahweh will preserve him, and keep him alive. He shall be blessed on the earth, and he will not surrender him to the will of his enemies.
PSA 41:3 Yahweh will sustain him on his sickbed, and restore him from his bed of illness.
PSA 41:4 I said, “Yahweh, have mercy on me! Heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
PSA 41:5 My enemies speak evil against me: “When will he die, and his name perish?”
PSA 41:6 If he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood. His heart gathers iniquity to itself. When he goes abroad, he tells it.
PSA 41:7 All who hate me whisper together against me. They imagine the worst for me.
PSA 41:8 “An evil disease”, they say, “has afflicted him. Now that he lies he shall rise up no more.”
PSA 41:9 Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, who ate bread with me, has lifted up his heel against me.
PSA 41:10 But you, Yahweh, have mercy on me, and raise me up, that I may repay them.
PSA 41:11 By this I know that you delight in me, because my enemy doesn’t triumph over me.
PSA 41:12 As for me, you uphold me in my integrity, and set me in your presence forever.
PSA 41:13 Blessed be Yahweh, the God of Israel, from everlasting and to everlasting! Amen and amen.
PSA 42:1 For the Chief Musician. A contemplation by the sons of Korah. As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants after you, God.
PSA 42:2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?
PSA 42:3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually ask me, “Where is your God?”
PSA 42:4 These things I remember, and pour out my soul within me, how I used to go with the crowd, and led them to God’s house, with the voice of joy and praise, a multitude keeping a holy day.
PSA 42:5 Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I shall still praise him for the saving help of his presence.
PSA 42:6 My God, my soul is in despair within me. Therefore I remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon, from the hill Mizar.
PSA 42:7 Deep calls to deep at the noise of your waterfalls. All your waves and your billows have swept over me.
PSA 42:8 Yahweh will command his loving kindness in the daytime. In the night his song shall be with me: a prayer to the God of my life.
PSA 42:9 I will ask God, my rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”
PSA 42:10 As with a sword in my bones, my adversaries reproach me, while they continually ask me, “Where is your God?”
PSA 42:11 Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I shall still praise him, the saving help of my countenance, and my God.
PSA 43:1 Vindicate me, God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation. Oh, deliver me from deceitful and wicked men.
PSA 43:2 For you are the God of my strength. Why have you rejected me? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
