131[A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. A psalm of David.] Lord, my heart is not proud; my eyes are not haughty. I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp.H7892H4609H1732H3068H3820H1361H5869H7311H1980H1419H6381 2Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself, like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk. Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me.H7737H1826H5315H1580H517H5315H1580 3O Israel, put your hope in the Lord—now and always.H3478H3176H3068H5704H5769

You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me.H3212H7130H6869H2421H7971H3027H639H341H3225H3467 8The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.H3068H1584H2617H3068H5769H7503H4639H3027

139[For the choir director: A psalm of David.] O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.H5329H4210H1732H3068H2713H30452You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.H3045H3427H6965H995H7454H73503You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you.H2822H2821H3915H215H3117H2825H21913You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.H7069H3629H5526H517H99014Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.H5869H7200H1564H5612H3789H3117H3335H25917How precious are your thoughts about mec, O God. They cannot be numbered!H3365H7454H410H6105H721818I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!H5608H7235H2344H6974H575019O God, if only you would destroy the wicked! Get out of my life, you murderers!H6991H7563H433H5493H1818H58220They blaspheme you; your enemies misuse your name.H559H4209H6145H5375H772321O Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you? Shouldn’t I despise those who oppose you?H8130H3068H8130H6962H861822Yes, I hate them with total hatred, for your enemies are my enemies.H8130H8503H8135H34123Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.H2713H410H3045H3824H974H3045H831224Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.H7200H6090H1870H5148H1870H5769

143[A psalm of David.] Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my plea!

He has knocked me to the ground and forces me to live in darkness like those in the grave.H341H7291H5315H1792H2416H1792H776H3427H4285H5769H4191 4I am losing all hope; I am paralyzed with fear.H7307H5848H3820H8432H8074 5I remember the days of old. I ponder all your great works and think about what you have done.H2142H3117H6924H1897H6467H7878H4639H3027 6I lift my hands to you in prayer. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain. InterludeH6566H3027H5315H5889H776H5542 7Come quickly, Lord, and answer me, for my depression deepens.
