Power of 8 Shidduchim
Power of 8 Shidduchim
1 Of David, a maskil Praiseworthy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is concealed.
2Praiseworthy is the man to whom the Lord ascribes no iniquity and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3When I was silent, my bones decayed with my moaning all day long.
4For [both] day and night Your hand is heavy upon me; my freshness was transformed as in the droughts of summer, forever.
5I would inform You of my sin, and I did not conceal my iniquity; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord," and You forgave the iniquity of my sin forever.
6For this let every pious man pray to You at the time that You are found, only about a flood of vast waters [that] should not reach him.
7You are a shelter for me, from an adversary You guard me; with songs of deliverance You encompass me forever,
8"I will enlighten you and instruct you which way [to go]; I will wink My eye to you."
9Be not like a horse, like a mule that does not discern; whose mouth must be held with bit and bridle, so that when he is being groomed, he does not come near you.
10Many are the pains of the wicked, but as for him who trusts in the Lord- kindness will encompass him.
11Rejoice with the Lord and exult, You righteous, and cause all those of upright hearts to sing praises.
1A song of David, to make remembrance.
2O Lord, do not reprove me with Your anger, nor chastise me with Your wrath.
3For Your arrows have been shot into me, and Your hand has come down upon me.
4There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your fury; there is no peace in my bones because of my sin.
5For my iniquities passed over my head; as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
6My boils are putrid; they fester because of my folly.
7I am very much stunned and bowed; all day I go around in gloom.
8For my loins are full of self-effacement; there is no soundness in my flesh.
9I passed out and was very crushed; I moaned from the turmoil in my heart.
10O Lord, all my desire is before You, and my sigh is not hidden from You.
11My heart is engulfed; my strength has left me, and the light of my eyes- they too are not with me.
12My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my affliction, and those close to me stood afar.
13And those who seek my life lay traps, and those who seek my harm speak treachery, and all day long they think of deceits.
14But I am as a deaf person, I do not hear, and like a mute, who does not open his mouth.
15And I was as a man who does not understand and in whose mouth are no arguments.
16Because I hoped for You, O Lord; You shall answer, O Lord, my God.
17For I said, "Lest they rejoice over me; when my foot faltered, they magnified themselves over me."
18For I am ready for disaster, and my pain is always before me.
19For I relate my iniquity; I worry about my sin.
20But my enemies are in the vigor of life, and those who hate me for false reasons have become great.
21And they repay evil for good; they hate me for my pursuit of goodness.
22Do not forsake me, O Lord, my God; do not distance Yourself from me.
23Hasten to my aid, O Lord, my salvation.
1For the conductor; of David, to make mention.
2O God, [hasten] to save me; O Lord, hasten to my assistance.
3May those who seek my life be shamed and humiliated; may those who desire my harm turn back and be disgraced.
4Let them return in the path of their shame, those who say, "Aha, aha."
5May all those who seek You exult and rejoice, and may those who love Your salvation say constantly, "May God be magnified."
6But I am poor and needy, O God, hasten to me; You are my aid and my rescuer, O Lord, do not delay.
1In You, O Lord, have I taken refuge; let me never be ashamed.
2With Your charity, You shall save me and rescue me; extend Your ear to me and save me.
3Be for me a sheltering rock in which to enter continually; You commanded [others] to save me because You are my rock and my fortress.
4My God, rescue me from the hands of the wicked, from the palm of him who treats unjustly and robs.
5For You are my hope, O Lord God, my trust since my youth.
6I relied on You from birth; from my mother's womb You drew me; my praise is always in You.
7I was an example for the multitude, but You were my strong shelter.
8My mouth will be filled with Your praise, all the days with Your glory.
9Do not cast me away at the time of old age; when my strength fails, do not forsake me.
10For my enemies said of me, and those who watch for my soul took counsel together,
11Saying, "God has forsaken him; pursue and seize him, for there is no rescuer."
12O God, do not distance Yourself from me; my God, hasten to my assistance.
13The adversaries of my soul will be shamed and will perish; enwrapped in humiliation and disgrace will be those who seek to harm me.
14As for me, I shall constantly hope, and I shall add to all Your praise.
15My mouth will recite Your righteousness, all the days Your salvation, for I do not know their number.
16I shall come with the mighty deeds of the Lord God; I shall mention Your righteousness alone.
17O God, You have taught me since my youth, and until now I shall recite your wonders.
18And even until old age and hoary hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I tell [of] Your strength to the generation, to everyone who comes-Your might
19And Your charity, O God, [which is] up to the heights, for You do great things. O God, who is like You?
20That You showed me great and evil troubles, You will revive me again, and from the depths of the earth You will again raise me up.
21You will increase my greatness, and You will turn and comfort me.
22I too shall thank You with a stringed instrument for Your truth, my God; I shall play music to You with a harp, O Holy One of Israel.
23My lips will sing praises when I play music to You, and my soul, which You redeemed.
24Also my tongue will utter Your righteousness all the days, for those who seek my harm are shamed, yea, for they are disgraced.
1Concerning Solomon. O God, give Your judgments to a king and Your righteousness to a king's son.
2May he judge Your people justly, and Your poor people with justice.
3May the mountains bear peace for the people, and the hills-through righteousness.
4May he judge the poor of the people; may he save the children of the needy and crush the oppressor.
5May they fear You in the presence of the sun and before the moon for generations upon generations.
6May it descend as rain upon cut vegetation, as raindrops that drip upon the earth.
7May the righteous flourish in his days, and much peace until there is no moon.
8And may he reign from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the land.
9May nobles kneel before him, and may his enemies lick the dust.
10May the kings of Tarshish and the isles return tribute; may the kings of Sheba and Seba approach with a gift.
11And all kings will prostrate themselves to him; may all nations serve him.
12For he will save a needy one who cries out, and a poor one who has no helper.
13He will have pity on the poor and needy, and he will save the souls of the needy.
14From blows and from robbery he will redeem their soul, and their blood will be dear in his eyes.
15And may he live, and He will give him of the gold of Sheba, and may He pray for him constantly; all the days may He bless him.
16May there be an abundance of grain in the land, on the mountain peaks; may its fruit rustle like Lebanon, and they will blossom forth from the city like the grass of the earth.
17May his name be forever; before the sun, his name will be magnified, and [people] will bless themselves with him; all nations will praise him.
18Blessed is the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who performs wonders alone.
19And blessed is His glorious name forever, and His glory will fill the entire earth. Amen and amen.
20The prayers of David the son of Jesse are completed.
1A song of Asaph. God stands in the congregation of God; in the midst of the judges He will judge.
2How long will you judge unjustly and favor the wicked forever?
3Judge the poor and orphan; justify the humble and the impoverished.
4Release the poor and the needy; save [them] from the hands of [the] wicked.
5They did not know and they do not understand [that] they will walk in darkness; all the foundations of the earth will totter.
6I said, "You are angelic creatures, and all of you are angels of the Most High."
7Indeed, as man, you will die, and as one of the princes, you will fall.
8Arise, O God, judge the earth, for You inherit all the nations.
1A song for ascents. I shall raise my eyes to the mountains, from where will my help come?
2My help is from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3He will not allow your foot to falter; Your Guardian will not slumber.
4Behold the Guardian of Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5The Lord is your Guardian; the Lord is your shadow; [He is] by your right hand.
6By day, the sun will not smite you, nor will the moon at night.
7The Lord will guard you from all evil; He will guard your soul.
8The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in from now and to eternity.
1A song of ascents. Of David. Had it not been for the Lord Who was with us, let Israel declare now.
2Had it not been for the Lord Who was with us when men rose up against us,
3Then they would have swallowed us raw when their anger was kindled against us.
4Then the waters would have washed us away; illness would have passed over our soul.
5Then the wicked waters would have passed over our soul.
6Blessed is the Lord, Who did not give us as prey for their teeth.
7Our soul escaped like a bird from the hunters' snare; the snare broke, and we escaped.
8Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
