Psalm 19-21

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Psalm 19

The heavens declare the glory of El;

And the firmament shows his handiwork.

2 Day to day utters speech,

And night to night shows knowledge.

3 There is no speech nor language;

Their voice is not heard.

4 Their line is gone out through all the earth,

And their words to the end of the world.

In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun,

5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

And rejoices as a strong man to run his course.

6 His going forth is from the end of the heavens,

And his circuit to the ends of it;

And there is nothing hid from the heat of it.

7 The law of Yahweh is perfect, restoring the soul:

The testimony of Yahweh is sure, making wise the simple.

8 The precepts of Yahweh are right, rejoicing the heart:

The commandment of Yahweh is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring for ever:

The ordinances of Yahweh are true, and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold;

Sweeter also than honey and the droppings of the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is your servant warned:

In keeping them there is great reward.

12 Who can discern his errors?

Clear me from hidden faults.

13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;

Let them not have dominion over me:

Then shall I be upright,

And I shall be clear from great transgression.

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart

Be acceptable in your sight, O Yahweh, my rock, and my redeemer.

Psalm 20

Yahweh answer you in the day of trouble;

The name of the Elohim of Jacob set you up on high;

2 Send you help from the sanctuary,

And strengthen you out of Zion;

3 Remember all your offerings,

And accept your burnt-sacrifice;


4 Grant you your heart’s desire,

And fulfil all your counsel.

5 We will triumph in your salvation,

And in the name of our Elohim we will set up our banners:

Yahweh fulfil all your petitions.

6 Now I know that Yahweh saves his anointed;

He will answer him from his holy heaven

With the saving strength of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;

But we will make mention of the name of Yahweh our Elohim.

8 They are bowed down and fallen;

But we are risen, and stand upright.

9 Save, Yahweh:

Let the King answer us when we call.

Psalm 21

The king shall joy in your strength, O Yahweh;

And in your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

2 You have given him his heart’s desire,

And have not withheld the request of his lips.


3 For you meet him with the blessings of goodness:

You set a crown of fine gold on his head.

4 He asked life of you, you gave it to him,

Even length of days forever and ever.

5 His glory is great in your salvation:

Honor and majesty you lay upon him.

6 For you make him most blessed forever:

You make him glad with joy in your presence.

7 For the king trusts in Yahweh;

And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he shall not be moved.

8 Your hand will find out all your enemies;

Your right hand will find out those that hate you.

9 You will make them as a fiery furnace in the time of your anger:

Yahweh will swallow them up in his wrath,

And the fire shall devour them.

10 Their fruit will you destroy from the earth,

And their seed from among the children of men.

11 For they intended evil against you;

They conceived a device which they are not able to perform.

12 For you will make them turn their back;

You will make ready with your bowstrings against their face.

13 Be exalted, O Yahweh, in your strength:

So will we sing and praise your power.



For the Chief Musician: set to Aijeleth hash-Shabar.
