Psalm 13-15

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Psalm 13

How long, O Yahweh? will you forget me forever?

How long will you hide your face from me?

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,

Having sorrow in my heart all the day?

How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?

3 Consider and answer me, O Yahweh my Elohim:

Lighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

4 Lest my enemy say, I have prevailed against him;

Lest my adversaries rejoice when I am moved.

5 But I have trusted in your lovingkindness;

My heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

6 I will sing to Yahweh,

Because he has dealt bountifully with me.



For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.


Psalm 14

The fool has said in his heart,

There is no Elohim.

They are corrupt, they have done abominable works;

There is none that does good.

2 Yahweh looked down from heaven upon the children of men,

To see if there were any that did understand,

That did seek after Elohim.

3 They have all gone aside; they have together become filthy;

There is none that does good, no, not one.

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And call not upon Yahweh?

5 There were they in great fear;

For Elohim is in the generation of the righteous.

6 You put to shame the counsel of the poor,

Because Yahweh is his refuge.

7 Oh that the salvation of Israel had come out of Zion!

When Yahweh brings back the captivity of his people,

Then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.



A Psalm of David.


Psalm 15

Yahweh, who shall sojourn in your tabernacle?

Who shall dwell in your holy hill?

2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness,

And speaks truth in his heart;

3 He that slanders not with his tongue,

Nor does evil to his friend,

Nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;

4 In whose eyes a reprobate is despised,

But who honors them that fear Yahweh;

He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not;

5 He that puts not out his money to interest,

Nor takes reward against the innocent.

He that does these things shall never be moved.



Michtam of David
