Psalm 13, Message
Long enough, God - you've ignored me long enough. I've looked at the back of your head long enough. Long enough I've carried this ton of trouble, lived with a stomach full of pain. Long enough my arrogant enemies have looked down their noses at me. Take a good look at me, God, my God; I want to look life in the eye...I've thrown myself headlong into Your arms - I'm celebrating Your rescue. I'm singing at the top of my lungs, I'm so full of answered prayers.
Psalm 16:7-8, Message
The wise counsel God gives me when I'm awake is confirmed by my sleeping heart. Day and night I'll stick with God; I've got a good thing going and I'm not letting go.
Psalm 17:1-7, Message
Listen while I build my case, God, the most honest prayer you'll ever hear. Show the world I'm innocent - in Your heart You know I am. Go ahead, examine me from inside out, surprise me in the middle of the night - You'll find I'm just what I say I am. My words don't run loose. I'm not trying to get my way in the world's way. I'm trying to get Your way, Your Word's way. I'm staying on Your trail; I'm putting one foot in front of the other. I'm not giving up. I call to You, God, because I'm sure of an answer. So - answer! Bend Your ear! Listen sharp! Point grace-graffiti on the fences; take in Your frightened children who are running...straight to You.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
Psalm 22:24, Message
He has never let you down, never looked the other way when you were kicked around. He has never wandered off to do His own thing; He has been right there, listening.
Psalm 25, Message
Show me how You work, God; school me in Your ways. Take me by the hand; lead me down the path of truth. You are my Savior, aren't You?...Mark me with Your sign of love. Plan only the best for me, God! God is fair and just; He corrects the misdirected, sends them in the right direction. He gives the rejects His hand, and leads them step-by-step. From now on every road you travel will take You to God. Follow the Covenant signs; read the charted directions...If I keep my eyes on God, I won't trip over my own feet...Keep watch over me and keep me out of trouble; don't let me down when I run to You. Use all your skill to put me together; I wait to see Your finished product.
Psalm 38: 9,22
All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you... Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Savior.
Psalm 96: 5, King James Version
For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.
Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice.
Psalms 137, American Standard Version
א על נהרות, בבל--שם ישבנו, גם-בכינו: בזכרנו, את-ציון.
ב על-ערבים בתוכה-- תלינו, כנרותינו.
ג כי שם שאלונו שובינו, דברי-שיר-- ותוללינו שמחה:
שירו לנו, משיר ציון.
ד איך--נשיר את-שיר-יהוה: על, אדמת נכר.
ה אם-אשכחך ירושלם-- תשכח ימיני.
ו תדבק-לשוני, לחכי-- אם-לא אזכרכי:
אם-לא אעלה, את-ירושלם-- על, ראש שמחתי.
137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down.
Yes, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2 On the willows in its midst,
we hung up our harps.
137:3 For there, those who led us captive asked us for songs.
Those who tormented us demanded songs of joy:
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
137:4 How can we sing Yahweh’s song in a foreign land?
137:5 If I forget you, Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget its skill.
137:6 Let my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I don’t remember you;
if I don’t prefer Jerusalem above my chief joy.
