A Psalm of David.
1) Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2) Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name;
worship the Lord in holy splendor.

3) The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord, over mighty waters.
4) The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

5) The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
6) He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
and Sirion like a young wild ox.

7) The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
8) The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.

9) The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl,
and strips the forest bare;
and in his temple all say, “Glory!”

10) The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
11) May the Lord give strength to his people!
May the Lord bless his people wit…

Psalm 141 - Let my prayer be as sacrifice

Jump to end of psalm
A Psalm of David.
1) I call upon you, O Lord; come quickly to me;
give ear to my voice when I call to you.
2) Let my prayer be counted as incense before you,
and the lifting up of my hands as an evening sacrifice.

3) Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord;
keep watch over the door of my lips.
4) Do not turn my heart to any evil,
to busy myself with wicked deeds
in company with those who work iniquity;
do not let me eat of their delicacies.

5) Let the righteous strike me;
let the faithful correct me.
Never let the oil of the wicked anoint my head,
for my prayer is continually against their wicked deeds.
6) When they are given over to those who shall condemn them,
then they shall learn that my words were pleasant.
7) Like a rock that one breaks apart and shatters on the land,
so shall their bones be strewn at the mouth of Sheol.

8) But my eyes are turned toward you, O God, my Lord;
in you I seek refuge; do not leave me defens…
