00:14 Hello, and welcome to His Words are Life.
00:16 I'm Kelly Mowrer and thank you for joining with me today
00:19 to read the beautiful Psalms. Let's pray before we start.
00:22 Dear God, thank you for these words that so beautifully
00:28 express both our praise to you and our cries to you for help.
00:32 Please be with us now as we read and bring to our hearts
00:36 the assurance that you hear our prayer.
00:38 Thank you so much for loving us. Amen.
00:40 We're picking up in Psalm 16, verse 6,
00:45 This is the King James Version. The lines are fallen unto me
00:50 in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
00:54 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel:
00:58 my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
01:01 I have set the Lord always before me:
01:04 because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
01:08 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:
01:12 my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my
01:17 soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see
01:21 corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
01:24 in thy presence is fulness of joy;
01:28 at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
01:32 Psalm 17. A Prayer of David. Hear the right, O Lord,
01:38 attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not
01:43 out of feigned lips. Let my sentence come forth from thy
01:47 presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
01:52 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me
01:57 in the night; thou hast tried me and shalt find nothing;
02:00 I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
02:04 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips
02:08 I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
02:12 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
02:17 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God:
02:21 Incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
02:26 Shew thy marvelous loving kindness, O thou that savest
02:30 by thy right hand them that put their trust in thee from those
02:34 that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye,
02:39 hide me under the shadow of thy wings, from the wicked that
02:43 oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
02:47 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak
02:51 Proudly. They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set
02:55 their eyes bowing down to the earth; like as a lion that is
02:59 greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in
03:02 secret places. Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down:
03:08 deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
03:12 >From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world.
03:16 which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou
03:20 fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children,
03:23 and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
03:25 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness:
03:30 I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
03:35 Psalm 18. This is the King James Version.
03:39 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to the servant of the
03:45 Lord. Who spake unto the Lord the words of this song in the
03:49 day that the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his
03:52 enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,
03:55 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock,
04:00 and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength,
04:06 in whom I will trust; my buckler and the horn of my salvation,
04:10 and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy
04:15 to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
04:20 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly
04:24 men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about:
04:29 the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon
04:33 the Lord and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his
04:38 temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
04:42 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also
04:47 of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
04:51 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his
04:55 mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
04:58 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was
05:03 under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea,
05:06 he did fly upon the wings of the wind. He made darkness his
05:10 secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and
05:14 thick clouds of the skies. At the brightness that was before
05:18 him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
05:23 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave
05:27 his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. Yea he sent out his
05:32 arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings,
05:36 and discomfited them. Then the channels of waters were seen,
05:40 and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke,
05:43 O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
05:46 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
05:53 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated
05:58 me: for they were too strong for me. They prevented me in the day
06:02 of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay. He brought me forth
06:08 also into a large place; he delivered me, because he
06:12 delighted in me. The Lord rewarded me according to my
06:16 righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he
06:20 recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have
06:24 not wickedly departed from my God. For all his judgments were
06:28 before me and I did not put away his statutes from me.
06:30 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine
06:35 iniquity. Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according
06:40 to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands
06:43 in his eyesight. With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself
06:48 merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
06:53 with the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the
06:58 froward thou wilt shew thyself froward. For thou wilt save
07:01 the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
07:05 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten
07:10 my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop, and by my
07:15 God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect:
07:20 the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those
07:24 that trust in him. For who is God, save the Lord?
07:28 For who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with
07:34 strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like
07:38 hinds feet, and setteth me upon my high places. He teacheth my
07:42 hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken my mine arms.
07:45 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation:
07:49 and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath
07:54 made me great. Thou hast enlarged my steps under me,
07:58 that my feet did not slip. I have pursued mine enemies,
08:03 and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were
08:07 consumed. I have wounded them that they were not able to rise:
08:11 they are fallen under my feet. For thou hast girded me with
08:16 strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those
08:20 that rose up against me. Thou hast also given me the necks of
08:24 mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
08:27 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord
08:32 but he answered them not. Then did I beat them small as
08:37 the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the
08:40 streets. Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people
08:44 and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I
08:48 have not known shall serve me. As soon as they hear of me,
08:52 they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit
08:57 themselves unto me. The strangers shall fade away, and
09:01 be afraid out of their close places. The Lord liveth;
09:05 blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation
09:09 be exalted. It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the
09:14 people under me. He delivereth me from mine enemies: Yea, thou
09:19 liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast
09:23 delivered me from the violent man.
09:25 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord,
09:29 among the heathen, and sing praises unto they name.
09:32 Great deliverance giveth he to his king: and sheweth mercy
09:37 to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
09:41 Psalm 19. To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
09:46 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament
09:52 sheweth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night
09:56 unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language,
10:01 where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through
10:04 all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
10:07 In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, which is as a
10:12 bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a
10:16 strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of
10:20 the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is
10:25 nothing hid from the heat thereof.
10:27 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul:
10:32 The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
10:37 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart:
10:42 the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.
10:46 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever:
10:51 The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
10:56 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine
11:02 gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11:05 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them
11:12 there is great reward. Who can understand his errors?
11:17 cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant
11:23 also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion
11:28 over me: then shall I be upright and I shall be innocent from the
11:32 great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the
11:37 meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight,
11:42 O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
11:45 Psalm 20. This is the King James Version
11:49 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
11:54 The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble: the name of the God
11:59 of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary,
12:04 and strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy offerings,
12:08 and accept thy burnt sacrifice: Selah. Grant thee according to
12:14 thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
12:16 We will rejoice in thy salvation and in the name of our God
12:21 we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfil all thy petitions.
12:26 Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed: he will hear him
12:33 from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right
12:36 hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses:
12:41 but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.
12:44 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen,
12:49 and stand upright. Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we
12:55 call. - Psalm 21. To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
13:01 The king shall joy in thy strength, O Lord;
13:05 and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
13:09 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden
13:14 the request of his lips, Selah. For thou preventest him with the
13:18 blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold
13:22 on his head. He has asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him,
13:28 even length of days for ever and ever. His glory is great
13:33 in thy salvation: honor and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
13:38 For thou hast made him most blessed forever.
13:42 thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
13:45 For the king trusteth in the Lord, and through the mercy of
13:50 the most High he shall not be moved. Thine hand shall find out
13:55 all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that
13:59 hate thee. Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of
14:03 thine anger: the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath,
14:05 and the fire shall devour them. Their fruit shalt thou destroy
14:09 from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
14:13 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a
14:16 mischievous device which they are not able to perform.
14:19 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt
14:23 make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them
14:27 Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength:
14:32 so will we sing and praise thy power.
