Resh   Look on my affliction and deliver me,    for I do not forget your law.  Plead my cause and redeem me;    give me life according to your promise!  Salvation is far from the wicked,    for they do not seek your statutes.  Great is your mercy, O LORD;    give me life according to your rules.  Many are my persecutors and my adversaries,    but I do not swerve from your testimonies.  I look at the faithless with disgust,    because they do not keep your commands.  Consider how I love your precepts!    Give me life according to your steadfast love.  The sum of your word is truth,    and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. Sin and Shin   Princes persecute me without cause,    but my heart stands in awe of your words.  I rejoice at your word    like one who finds great spoil.  I hate and abhor falsehood,    but I love your law.  Seven times a day I praise you    for your righteous rules.  Great peace have those who love your law;    nothing can make them stumble.  I hope for your salvation, O LORD,    and I do your commandments.  My soul keeps your testimonies;    I love them exceedingly.  I keep your precepts and testimonies,    for all my ways are before you. Taw   Let my cry come before you, O LORD;    give me understanding according to your word!  Let my plea come before you;    deliver me according to your word.  My lips will pour forth praise,    for you teach me your statutes.  My tongue will sing of your word,    for all your commandments are right.  Let your hand be ready to help me,    for I have chosen your precepts.  I long for your salvation, O LORD,    and your law is my delight.  Let my soul live and praise you,    and let your rules help me.  I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant,    for I do not forget your commandments.

5 Lent First Psalm: Psalms 120–123 Second Psalm: Psalms 124–127 Old Testament: Exodus 5–6:1 New Testament: 1 Corinthians 14:20–33; 1 Corinthians 14:39–40 Gospel: Mark 9:42–50 First Psalm: Psalms 120–123 Psalms 120–123 Back to top Psalms 120–123 (Listen) Deliver Me, O Lord A Song of Ascents. 120   In my distress I called to the LORD,    and he answered me.  Deliver me, O LORD,    from lying lips,    from a deceitful tongue.   What shall be given to you,    and what more shall be done to you,    you deceitful tongue?  A warrior's sharp arrows,    with glowing coals of the broom tree!   Woe to me, that I sojourn in Meshech,    that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!  Too long have I had my dwelling    among those who hate peace.  I am for peace,    but when I speak, they are for war! My Help Comes from the Lord A Song of Ascents. 121   I lift up my eyes to the hills.    From where does my help come?  My help comes from the LORD,    who made heaven and earth.   He will not let your foot be moved;    he who keeps you will not slumber.  Behold, he who keeps Israel    will neither slumber nor sleep.   The LORD is your keeper;    the LORD is your shade on your right hand.  The sun shall not strike you by day,    nor the moon by night.   The LORD will keep you from all evil;    he will keep your life.  The LORD will keep    your going out and your coming in    from this time forth and forevermore. Let Us Go to the House of the Lord A Song of Ascents. Of David. 122   I was glad when they said to me,    “Let us go to the house of the LORD!”  Our feet have been standing    within your gates, O Jerusalem!   Jerusalem—built as a city    that is bound firmly together,  to which the tribes go up,    the tribes of the LORD,  as was decreed for1 Israel,    to give thanks to the name of the LORD.  There thrones for judgment were set,    the thrones of the house of David.   Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!    “May they be secure who love you!  Peace be within your walls    and security within your towers!”  For my brothers and companions' sake    I will say, “Peace be within you!”  For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,    I will seek your good. Our Eyes Look to the Lord Our God A Song of Ascents. 123   To you I lift up my eyes,    O you who are enthroned in the heavens!  Behold, as the eyes of servants    look to the hand of their master,  as the eyes of a maidservant    to the hand of her mistress,  so our eyes look to the LORD our God,    till he has mercy upon us.   Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us,    for we have had more than enough of contempt.  Our soul has had more than enough    of the scorn of those who are at ease,    of the contempt of the proud.

5 Lent First Psalm: Psalm 31 Second Psalm: Psalm 35 Old Testament: Exodus 4:10–31 New Testament: 1 Corinthians 14:1–19 Gospel: Mark 9:30–41 First Psalm: Psalm 31 Psalm 31 Back to top Psalm 31 (Listen) Into Your Hand I Commit My Spirit To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. 31   In you, O LORD, do I take refuge;    let me never be put to shame;    in your righteousness deliver me!  Incline your ear to me;    rescue me speedily!  Be a rock of refuge for me,    a strong fortress to save me!   For you are my rock and my fortress;    and for your name's sake you lead me and guide me;  you take me out of the net they have hidden for me,    for you are my refuge.  Into your hand I commit my spirit;    you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.   I hate1 those who pay regard to worthless idols,    but I trust in the LORD.  I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love,    because you have seen my affliction;    you have known the distress of my soul,  and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;    you have set my feet in a broad place.   Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am in distress;    my eye is wasted from grief;    my soul and my body also.  For my life is spent with sorrow,    and my years with sighing;  my strength fails because of my iniquity,    and my bones waste away.   Because of all my adversaries I have become a reproach,    especially to my neighbors,  and an object of dread to my acquaintances;    those who see me in the street flee from me.  I have been forgotten like one who is dead;    I have become like a broken vessel.  For I hear the whispering of many—    terror on every side!—  as they scheme together against me,    as they plot to take my life.   But I trust in you, O LORD;    I say, “You are my God.”  My times are in your hand;    rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!  Make your face shine on your servant;    save me in your steadfast love!  O LORD, let me not be put to shame,    for I call upon you;  let the wicked be put to shame;    let them go silently to Sheol.  Let the lying lips be mute,    which speak insolently against the righteous    in pride and contempt.   Oh, how abundant is your goodness,    which you have stored up for those who fear you  and worked for those who take refuge in you,    in the sight of the children of mankind!  In the cover of your presence you hide them    from the plots of men;  you store them in your shelter    from the strife of tongues.   Blessed be the LORD,    for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me    when I was in a besieged city.  I had said in my alarm,2    “I am cut off from your sight.”  But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy    when I cried to you for he[...]

4 Lent First Psalm: Psalms 107:33–108:13 Second Psalm: Psalm 33 Old Testament: Exodus 2:23–3:15 New Testament: 1 Corinthians 13 Gospel: Mark 9:14–29 First Psalm: Psalms 107:33–108:13 Psalms 107:33–108:13 Back to top Psalms 107:33–108:13 (Listen)   He turns rivers into a desert,    springs of water into thirsty ground,  a fruitful land into a salty waste,    because of the evil of its inhabitants.  He turns a desert into pools of water,    a parched land into springs of water.  And there he lets the hungry dwell,    and they establish a city to live in;  they sow fields and plant vineyards    and get a fruitful yield.  By his blessing they multiply greatly,    and he does not let their livestock diminish.   When they are diminished and brought low    through oppression, evil, and sorrow,  he pours contempt on princes    and makes them wander in trackless wastes;  but he raises up the needy out of affliction    and makes their families like flocks.  The upright see it and are glad,    and all wickedness shuts its mouth.   Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things;    let them consider the steadfast love of the LORD. With God We Shall Do Valiantly A Song. A Psalm of David. 108   My heart is steadfast, O God!    I will sing and make melody with all my being!1  Awake, O harp and lyre!    I will awake the dawn!  I will give thanks to you, O LORD, among the peoples;    I will sing praises to you among the nations.  For your steadfast love is great above the heavens;    your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!    Let your glory be over all the earth!  That your beloved ones may be delivered,    give salvation by your right hand and answer me!   God has promised in his holiness:2    “With exultation I will divide up Shechem    and portion out the Valley of Succoth.  Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;    Ephraim is my helmet,    Judah my scepter.  Moab is my washbasin;    upon Edom I cast my shoe;    over Philistia I shout in triumph.”   Who will bring me to the fortified city?    Who will lead me to Edom?  Have you not rejected us, O God?    You do not go out, O God, with our armies.  Oh grant us help against the foe,    for vain is the salvation of man!  With God we shall do valiantly;    it is he who will tread down our foes.
