A PSALM A DAY – PSALM 66

Psalm 66 Good News Translation (GNT)

Psalm 66 | SeekGrowLove.com

66 Praise God with shouts of joy, all people!
Sing to the glory of his name;
    offer him glorious praise!
Say to God, “How wonderful are the things you do!
    Your power is so great
    that your enemies bow down in fear before you.
Everyone on earth worships you;
    they sing praises to you,
    they sing praises to your name.”

Come and see what God has done,
    his wonderful acts among people.
He changed the sea into dry land;
    our ancestors crossed the river on foot.
There we rejoiced because of what he did.
He rules forever by his might
    and keeps his eyes on the nations.
    Let no rebels rise against him.
Praise our God, all nations;
    let your praise be heard.
He has kept us alive
    and has not allowed us to fall.

10 You have put us to the test, God;
    as silver is purified by fire,
    so you have tested us.
11 You let us fall into a trap
    and placed heavy burdens on our backs.
12 You let our enemies trample us;
    we went through fire and flood,
    but now you have brought us to a place of safety.

13 I will bring burnt offerings to your house;
    I will offer you what I promised.
14 I will give you what I said I would
    when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer sheep to be burned on the altar;
I will sacrifice bulls and goats,
    and the smoke will go up to the sky.

16 Come and listen, all who honor God,
    and I will tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried to him for help;
    I praised him with songs.
18 If I had ignored my sins,
    the Lord would not have listened to me.
19 But God has indeed heard me;
    he has listened to my prayer.

20 I praise God,
    because he did not reject my prayer
    or keep back his constant love from me.

A PSALM A DAY – PSALM 65

Psalm 65 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Psalm 65: The God We Can't Live Without - YouTube

To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.

Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion:
and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
O thou that hearest prayer,
unto thee shall all flesh come.
Iniquities prevail against me:
as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
Blessed is the man whom thou choosest,
and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts:
we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation;
who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
which by his strength setteth fast the mountains;
being girded with power:
which stilleth the noise of the seas,
the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens:
thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it:
thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water:
thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly:
thou settlest the furrows thereof:
thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness;
and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness:
and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks;
the valleys also are covered over with corn;
they shout for joy, they also sing.

A PSALM A DAY – PSALM 64

Psalm 64 Modern English Version (MEV)

Psalm 64

For the Music Director. A Psalm of David.

Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;
    guard my life from dread of the enemy.

Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked,
    from the throng of the workers of iniquity;
they sharpen their tongue like a sword,
    and bend their bows to shoot their arrows—bitter words,
that they may shoot in secret at the blameless;
    suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.

They harden themselves in an evil matter;
    they talk privately of laying snares;
    they say, “Who will see them?”
They devise injustice,
    saying “We have perfected a secret plot.”
    Both the inward thought of man and the heart are deep.

But God will suddenly shoot them with an arrow;
    they will be wounded.
They will bring ruin on themselves
    by their own tongues;
    all who see them will flee away.
All people will fear,
    and declare the work of God;
    they will wisely consider His deeds.

10 The righteous will be glad in the Lord,
    and seek refuge in Him,
    and all the upright in heart will glory.

A Psalm a Day – Psalm 63

Psalm 63 The Message (MSG)

Psalm 63:1–11 (ESV) - Psalm 63:1–11 ESV - O God, you are my God ...

A David Psalm, When He Was out in the Judean Wilderness

63 God—you’re my God!
    I can’t get enough of you!
I’ve worked up such hunger and thirst for God,
    traveling across dry and weary deserts.

2-4 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open,
    drinking in your strength and glory.
In your generous love I am really living at last!
    My lips brim praises like fountains.
I bless you every time I take a breath;
    My arms wave like banners of praise to you.

5-8 I eat my fill of prime rib and gravy;
    I smack my lips. It’s time to shout praises!
If I’m sleepless at midnight,
    I spend the hours in grateful reflection.
Because you’ve always stood up for me,
    I’m free to run and play.
I hold on to you for dear life,
    and you hold me steady as a post.

9-11 Those who are out to get me are marked for doom,
    marked for death, bound for hell.
They’ll die violent deaths;
    jackals will tear them limb from limb.
But the king is glad in God;
    his true friends spread the joy,
While small-minded gossips
    are gagged for good.
