Tehillim/Psalms 102.25-29

I say, “O my G-d, do not take me away in the midst of my days,

You whose years go on for generations on end.

Of old You established the earth;

the heavens are the work of Your hands.

They shall perish, but You shall endure;

they shall all wear out like a garment;

You change them like clothing and they pass away.

But You are the same, and Your years never end.

May the children of Your servants dwell securely

and their offspring endure in Your Presence.”

Tehillim/Psalms 102.25-19


Tehillim/Psalms 143.4-11


My spirit failed within me;

my mind was numbed with horror.

Then I thought of the days of old;

I rehearsed all Your deeds,

recounted the work of Your hands.

I stretched out my hands to You,

longing for You like thirsty earth.  Selah.

Answer me quickly, O Lord;

my spirit can endure no more.

Do not hide your face from me,

or I shall become like those who descend into the Pit.

Let me learn of Your faithfulness by daybreak,

for in You I trust;

let me know the road I must take,

for on You I have set my hope.

Save me from my foes, O Lord;

to You I look for cover.

Teach me to do Your will,

for You are my God.

Let Your gracious spirit lead me on level ground.

For the sake of Your name, O Lord, preserve me;

as You are beneficent, free me from distress.

Tehillim/Psalms 143.4-11

Tehillim/Psalms 37.7-11

Be patient and wait for the Lord,

do not be vexed by the prospering man

who carries out his schemes.

Give up anger, abandon fury,

do not be vexed;

it can only do harm.

For evil men will be cut off,

but those who look to the Lord ~

they shall inherit the land.

A little longer there will be no wicked man;

you will look at where he was ~

he will be gone.

But the lowly shall inherit the land,

and delight in abundant well-being.

Tehillim/Psalms 37.7-11

Tehillim/Psalms 145.14-17


The Lord supports all who stumble,

and makes all who are bent stand straight.

The eyes of all look to You expectantly,

and You give them their food when it is due.

You give it openhandedly,

feeding every creature to its heart’s content.

The Lord is beneficent in all His ways,

and faithful in all His works.

Tehillim/Psalms 145.14-17

Tehillim/Psalms 65.9-11


Those who live at the ends of the earth are awed by Your signs;

You make the lands of sunrise and sunset shout for joy.

You take care of the earth and irrigate it;

You enrich it greatly with the channel of G-d full of water;

You provide grain for men, for so do You prepare it.

Saturating its furrows, leveling its ridges,

You soften it with showers,

You bless its growth.

Tehillim/Psalms 65.9-11

Tehillim/Psalms 148.1-6



Praise the Lord from the heavens;

Praise Him on high.

Praise Him, all His angels,

Praise Him, all His hosts.

Praise Him, sun and moon,

Praise Him, all bright stars.

Praise Him, highest heavens,

and you waters that are above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for it was He who commanded that they be created.

He made them endure forever,

establishing an order that shall never change.

Tehillim/Psalms 148.1-6

Tehillim/Psalms 1.1-3

Happy is the person who has not followed

the counsel of the wicked,

or taken the path of sinners,

or joined the company of the insolent;

rather, the teaching of the Lord is his delight,

and he studies that teaching day and night.

He is like a tree planted beside streams of water,

which yields its fruit in season,

whose foliage never fades,

and whatever it produces thrives.

Tehillim/Psalms 1.1-3
