Inspiring Torah 72 Prayers of Hope
Written by Dawid
The Anointed King of Yahdaim!
Prayers Chapter 1
Righteous is the man that walk not in the counsel of the unrighteous, nor stand in the way of the wicked, nor sit in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the Law of Yah; and in His Law does he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bring forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper.
The unrighteous are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drive away.
Therefore the unrighteous shall not stand in the judgment, nor the wicked in the congregation of the righteous.
For Yah know the way of the righteous: but the way of the unrighteous shall perish.
Prayers Chapter 2
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yah, and against his anointed, saying…”
“Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us!”
He that sit in the heavens shall laugh: Yah shall have them in derision.
Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.
“Yet have I set My King upon My Mountain of Sion”
[Yah is speaking here of King Dawid the…Anointed King]
I will declare the decree: Yah has said unto me…”
“You are my Son; this day have I begotten “You!”
“Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.”
“You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
Be wise now therefore, O’ you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth.
Serve Yah with fear, and delight with trembling.
Kiss the Son ( King Dawid), lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Honored are all they that put their trust in Him.
Prayers Chapter 3

The Real Mount Sinai Image Below.
I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for Yah sustained me.
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
Arise, O’ Yah; save me, O’ my Yah: for You has smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; You has broken the teeth of the unrighteous.
Salvation belong unto Yah: Your honor is upon Your people. Selah.
Prayers Chapter 4
Hear me when I call, O’ Yah of my Righteousness:
You has enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
O’ you sons of men, how long will you turn my honor into shame? how long will you love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah!
But know that Yah has set apart him that is righteous for Himself: Yah will hear when I call unto Him.
Stand in awe, and transgress not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah!

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for You, Yah, only make me dwell in safety.
Prayers Chapter 5
Give ear to my words, O’ Yah, consider my meditation.
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my Yah: for unto You will I pray.
My voice shall You hear in the morning, O’ Yah; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto You, and will look up.
For You are not Yah that has pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with You.
The foolish shall not stand in Your Sight: You hate all workers of iniquity.
You shall destroy them that speak lying: Yah will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
But as for me, I will come into Your House in the multitude of Your mercy: and in Your fear will I worship toward Your Temple.
Lead me, O’ Yah, in Your Righteousness because of mine enemies; make Your way straight before my face.
For there is no loyalty in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulcher; they flatter with their tongue.
Destroy You them, O’ Yah; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against You!
But let all those that put their trust in You delight: let them ever shout for gladness, because You defend them: let them also that love Your Name be glad in You.
For You, Yah, will honor the righteous; with favor will You compass him as with a Shield.
Prayers Chapter 6
O’ Yah, rebuke me not in Your anger, neither chasten me in Your hot displeasure.
Have mercy upon me, O’ Yah; for I am weak: O’ Yah, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
My soul is also sore vexed: but You, O’ Yah, how long?
Return, O’ Yah, deliver my soul: oh save me for Your mercies’ sake.
For in death there is no remembrance of You: in the grave who shall give You thanks?
I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it wax old because of all mine enemies.
Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; for Yah has heard the voice of my weeping.
Yah has heard my supplication; Yah will receive my prayer.
Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
Prayers Chapter 7
O’ Yah, in You do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
O’ Yah, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; yea, if I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy.
Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust. Selah!
Arise! O’ Yah, in Your anger, lift up Yourself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that You has commanded.
So shall the congregation of the people compass You about: for their sake therefore return You on high.
Yah shall judge the people: judge me, O’ Yah, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous Yah try the hearts and reins.
My defense is of Yah, which save the upright in heart.
Yah judge the righteous, and Yah is angry with the wicked every day.
If He turn not, He will sharpen His Sword; He has bent His Bow, and made it ready!
He has also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordain His Arrows against the persecutors.
Behold! He suffer with iniquity, and has conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood!
He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own head.
I will praise Yah according to His Righteousness: and will sing praise to the Name of Yah Most High!
Prayers Chapter 8
O’ Yah! How excellent is Your Name in all the earth! who has set Your Praise above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of babes and suckling’s has You ordained strength because of Your enemies, that You might still the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your Fingers, the moon and the stars, which You has ordained;
What is man, that You are mindful of him? and the son of man, that You visit him?
For You has made him a little lower than the angels, and has crowned him with honor.
You made him to have dominion over the works of Your Hands; You has put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever pass through the paths of the seas.
O’ Yah, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth!

O’ you enemy, destruction’s are come to a perpetual end: and you has destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
But Yah shall endure forever:
He has prepared His Throne for judgment!!
And He shall judge the world in righteousness, He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
Yah also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
And they that know “Your Name” will put their trust in You: for You, Yah, has not forsaken them that seek You.
Sing praises to Yah, which dwell in Sion: declare among the people his doings.
When He make inquisition for blood, He remember them: He forget not the cry of the humble.
Have mercy upon me, O’ Yah; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, You that lift me up from the gates of death:
That I may show forth all Your praise in the gates of the daughter of Sion: I will delight in Your Salvation.
The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken!
Yah is known by the judgment which He execute: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget Yah!
For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.
Arise, O’ Yah; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in Your Sight.
Put them in fear, O’ Yah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
Prayers Chapter 10
Why stand You afar off, O’ Yah? Why hide You Yourself in times of trouble?
The wicked in his pride does persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined!
For the wicked boast of his heart’s desire, and honor the covetous, whom Yah abhor.
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after Yah: Yah is not in all his thoughts.
His ways are always grievous; Your judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puff at them.
He has said in his heart…“I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.”
His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
He sit in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places does he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
He lie in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lie in wait to catch the poor: he does catch the poor, when he draw him into his net.
He crouch, and humble himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
He has said in his heart…”
“The Lord has forgotten: he hide his face; he will never see it!”
Arise, O’ Yah! O’ Yah! Lift up Your Hand: forget not the humble.
Wherefore does the wicked contempt Yah? he has said in his heart…“You will not require it.”
You has seen it; for You behold mischief and spite, to return it with Your Hand: the poor commit himself unto You; You are the helper of the fatherless.
Break You the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till You find none.
Yah is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of His Land.
Yah, You has heard the desire of the humble: You will prepare their heart, You will cause Your ear to hear:
To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Yah is in His Temple, Yah’s Throne is in heaven: His eyes behold! His eyelids try, the children of men.
Yah try the righteous: but the wicked and him that love violence His soul hate.
Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
For the righteous Yah love righteousness; His Countenance does behold the upright.
Prayers Chapter 12
Help, Yah; for the righteous man cease; for the loyal fail from among the children of men.
They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
Yah shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speak proud things:
Who have said…”
“With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?”
For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, said Yah; I will set him in safety from him that puff at him.
The words of Yah are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
You shall keep them, O’ Yah, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.
The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
Prayers Chapter 13
How long will You forget me, O’ Yah? forever?
How long will You hide Your Face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
Consider and hear me, O’ Yah my Yah: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
Lest mine enemy say, “I have prevailed against him;” and those that trouble me delight when I am moved.
But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall delight in Your Salvation.
I will sing unto Yah, because He has dealt bountifully with me.
Prayers Chapter 14
The fool has said in his heart…”
“There is no Yah!”
They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.
Yah looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek Yah.
They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that does good, no, not one.
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up My People as they eat bread, and call not upon Yah.

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honor them that fear Yah. He that swear to his own hurt, and change not.
He that put not out his money to usury, nor take reward against the innocent. He that does these things shall never be moved.
Prayers Chapter 16
Preserve me, O’ Yah: for in You do I put my trust.
O’ my soul, you has said unto Yah, You are my Lord: my goodness extend not to You;
But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood…”

Yah is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: You maintain my lot.
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
I will praise Yah, who has given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
I have set Yah always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my praise delight: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
For You will not leave my soul in hell; neither will You suffer Your One to see corruption.
You will show me the path of life: in Your presence is fullness of delight; at Your Right Hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Prayers Chapter 17
Hear the right, O’ Yah, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goes not out of feigned lips.
Let my sentence come forth from Your presence; let Your eyes behold the things that are equal.
You has proved mine heart; You has visited me in the night; You has tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
Concerning the works of men, by the word of Your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
Hold up my goings in Your paths, that my footsteps slip not.
I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O’ Yah: incline Your ear unto me, and hear my speech.
Show Your marvelous loving kindness, O’ You that save by Your Right Hand them which put their trust in You from those that rise up against them.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
Arise, O’ Yah, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is Your Sword:
From men which are Your Hand, O’ Yah, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly You fill with Your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
As for me, I will behold Your Face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Your likeness.
Prayers Chapter 18
I will love You, O’ Yah!! My Strength!
Yah is my Rock, and my Fortress, and my deliverer; my Yah, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my Salvation, and my High Tower!
I will call upon Yah, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of unrighteous men made me afraid.
The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
In my distress I called upon Yah, and cried unto my Father: he heard my voice out of His Temple, and my cry came before Him, even into His ears.
Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the mountains moved and were shaken, because He was angry.
There went up a smoke out of His nostrils, and fire out of His Mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
And He rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, He did fly upon the wings of the wind.
He made darkness His secret place; His shelter round about Him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
At the brightness that was before Him His thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
Yah also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave His Voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
Yea, He sent out His Arrows, and scattered them; and He shot out lightning’s, and discomfited them.
Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at Your rebuke, O’ Yah, at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils!
He sent from above, He took me, He drew me out of many waters.
He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but Yah was my stay.
He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
Yah rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands has He recompensed me.
For I have kept the ways of Yah, and have not wickedly departed from my Yah.
For all His judgments were before me, and I did not put away His Statutes from me.
I was also upright before Him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
Therefore has Yah recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His eyesight?
With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful; with an upright man You will show Yourself upright;
With the pure You will show Yourself pure; and with the forward You will show Yourself forward.
For You will save the afflicted people; but will bring down high looks.
For You will light my candle: Yah will enlighten my darkness.
For by You I have run through a troop; and by Yah have I leaped over a wall.
As for Yah! His way is perfect: the Word of Yah is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him.
For who is Yah save Yah? or who is a rock save our Yah?
It is Yah that bind me with strength, and make my way perfect.
He make my feet like deer’s’ feet, and set me upon my high places.
He teach my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
You has also given me the shield of Your Salvation: and Your Right Hand has hold me up, and Your gentleness has made me great.
You has enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
For You has girded me with strength unto the battle: You has subdued under me those that rose up against me.
You has also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto Yah, but He answered them not.
Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
You has delivered me from the strivings of the people; and You has made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.
As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
Yah live; and praise be my Rock; and let Yah of my Salvation be exalted.
It is Yah that avenge me, and subdue the people under me.
He deliver me from mine enemies: yea, You lift me up above those that rise up against me: You has delivered me from the violent man.
Therefore will I give thanks unto You, O’ Yah, among the heathen, and sing praises unto Your Name.
Great deliverance give He to His King; and show mercy to His anointed, to Dawid, and to His Seed for evermore.
Prayers Chapter 19
The heavens declare the praise of Yah; and the firmament show His handiwork.
Day unto day utter speech, and night unto night show knowledge.
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has He set a Tabernacle for the sun,
Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and delight as a strong man to run a race.
His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and His circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
The Law of Yah is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of Yah is sure, making wise the simple.
The Statutes of Yah are right, delight the heart: the Commandment of Yah is pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of Yah is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of Yah are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Moreover by them is Your Servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Who can understand His errors? Cleanse You me from secret faults.
Keep back Your Servant also from presumptuous iniquity; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Your Sight, O’ Yah, my strength, and my redeemer.
Prayers Chapter 20

Send You help from the Sanctuary, and strengthen You out of Sion!
Remember all Your offerings, and accept Your burnt sacrifice; Selah.
Grant You according to Your own Heart, and fulfil all Your counsel.
We will delight in Your Salvation, and in the Name of Yah we will set up our banners: Yah fulfil all Your petitions.
Now know I that Yah save His anointed; He will hear him from His Heaven with the saving strength of His Right Hand.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the Name of Yah our Father.
They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
Save, Yah: let the King hear us when we call.
Prayers Chapter 21
The King shall delight in Your Strength, O’ Yah; and in Your Salvation how greatly shall he delight!
You has given him his heart’s desire, and has not withhold the request of his lips. Selah!
For You prevent him with the honor of goodness: You set a crown of pure gold on his head.
He asked life of You, and You gave it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
His praise is great in Your Salvation: honor and majesty has You laid upon him.
For You has made him most honored for ever: You has made him exceeding glad with Your Countenance.
For the King trust in Yah, and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.
Your Hand shall find out all enemies:
Your Right Hand shall find out those that hate You.
You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger: Yah shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
Their fruit shall You destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
For they intended evil against you: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
Therefore shall You make them turn their back, when You shall make ready Your arrows upon Your strings against the face of them.
Be You exalted, Yah, in Your own strength: so will we sing and praise Your Power.
Prayers Chapter 22
My Yah! my Yah! Why have You forsaken me?
Why are You so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
O’ my Yah! I cry in the daytime, but You hear not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
But You are praised, O’ You that inhabit the praises of Yahdaim.
Our fathers trusted in You: they trusted, and You did deliver them.
They cried unto You, and were delivered: they trusted in You, and were not confounded.
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying…
“He trusted on the Lord that He would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.”
But You are He that took me out of the womb: You did make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.
I was cast upon You from the womb: You are my Yah from my mother’s belly.
Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleave to my jaws; and You has brought me into the dust of death!
For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have enclosed me!
I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
But be not You far from me, O’ Yah: O’ my strength, haste You to help me.
Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
Save me from the lion’s mouth: for You has heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
I will declare Your Name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise You!
You that fear Yah, praise Him; all you the seed of Yahgob, praise Him; and fear Him, all you the seed of Yahdaim!!!

My praise shall be of You in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.
The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise Yah that seek Him: your heart shall live forever.
All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto Yah: and all the kindred’s of the nations shall worship before You.
For the Kingdom is Yah’s: and He is the Governor among the nations.
All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
A seed shall serve Him; it shall be accounted to Yah for a generation.
They shall come, and shall declare His Righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that He has done this.
Prayers Chapter 23
Yah is my shepherd; I shall not want!
He make me to lie down in green pastures: He lead me beside the still waters.
He restore my soul: He lead me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your Rod and Your Staff they comfort me.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the House of Yah forever.
Prayers Chapter 24
The earth is Yah’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods!

This is the generation of them that seek Him, that seek Your Face, O’ Yahgob. Selah.
Lift up your heads, O’ you gates; and be you lift up, you everlasting doors; and the King of Honor shall come in.

Who is this King of Honor? Yah of hosts, He is the King of Honor. Selah.
Prayers Chapter 25
Unto You! O’ Yah, do I lift up my soul!
O’ my Yah!! I trust in You: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
Yea, let none that wait on You be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
Show me Your ways, O’ Yah; teach me Your paths.
Lead me in Your truth, and teach me: for You are Yah of my Salvation; on You do I wait all the day.
Remember, O’ Yah, Your tender mercies and Your loving kindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
Remember not the iniquity of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to Your mercy remember You me for Your goodness’ sake, O’ Yah.

The meek will He guide in judgment: and the meek will He teach His way.
All the paths of Yah are mercy and truth unto such as keep His Covenant and His Laws.
For Your Name’s sake, O’ Yah, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.

The secret of Yah is with them that fear Him; and He will show them His Covenant.
Mine eyes are ever toward Yah; for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Turn You unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O’ bring You me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my iniquity.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O’ keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in You.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on You.
Redeem Yahdaim, O’ Yah, out of all his troubles.
Prayers Chapter 26
Judge me, O’ Yah; for I have walked in mine integrity:
I have trusted also in Yah; therefore I shall not slide.
Examine me, O’ Yah, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
For Your loving kindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in Your truth.
I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with pretenders.
I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash mine hands in innocence: so will I compass Your Altar, O’ Yah:
That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wondrous works.
Yah, I have loved the habitation of Your House, and the place where Your honor dwell.
Gather not my soul with the wicked, nor my life with bloody men:
In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
My foot stand in an even place: in the congregations will I praise Yah.
Prayers Chapter 27
Yah is my Light and my Salvation!!
Whom shall I fear?
Yah is the Strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
One thing have I desired of Yah, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of Yah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Yah, and to enquire in His Temple.
For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in his Tabernacle: in the secret of his Tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock.
And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in His Tabernacle sacrifices of delight; I will sing! Yea! I will sing praises unto Yah!
Hear, O’ Yah!! When I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said ”Seek You My Face!” My heart said unto You…”
“Your Face, Yah!…Will I seek!”.
Hide not Your face far from me; put not Your Servant away in anger: You have been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O’ Yah of my Salvation.
When my father and my mother forsake me, then Yah will take me up.
Teach me Your way, O’ Yah, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the righteousness of Yah in the land of the living.
Wait on Yah: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on Yah!
Unto You will I cry!
O’ Yah!! My rock; be not silent to me: lest, if You be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto You, when I lift up my hands toward Your Sanctuary.
Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief is in their hearts.
Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavors: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
Because they regard not the works of Yah, nor the operation of His Hands, He shall destroy them, and not build them up.
Praised be Yah, because He has heard the voice of my supplications.
Yah is my Strength and my Shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly delight; and with my song will I praise Him.
Yah is their Strength, and He is the saving Strength of His anointed.
Save Your people, and increase Your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up forever.
Prayers Chapter 29
Give unto Yah! O’ you mighty, give unto Yah honor and strength.
Give unto Yah the honor due unto His Name; worship Yah in the beauty of Oneness!
The Voice of Yah is upon the waters: Yah of praise thundered: Yah is upon many waters.
The Voice of Yah is powerful; the Voice of Yah is full of majesty.
The Voice of Yah break the cedars; yea, Yah break the cedars of Lebanon.
He make them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young horse.
The Voice of Yah divide the flames of fire.
The Voice of Yah shake the wilderness; Yah shake the wilderness of Kadesh.
The Voice of Yah make the hinds to calve, and discover the forests: and in His Temple does every one speak of His Honor.
Yah sit upon the flood; yea, Yah sit King Forever!
Yah will give strength unto His People; Yah will increase His People with peace.
Prayers Chapter 30
I will extol You! O’ Yah!! For You have lifted me up, and has not made my foes to delight over me.
O’ Yah! My Yah! I cried unto You, and You has healed me!
O’ Yah! You has brought up my soul from the grave: You has kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing unto Yah, O’ you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His righteousness.
For His anger endure but a moment; in His favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but delight come in the morning.
And in my prosperity I said…”I shall never be moved.”
Yah, by your favor You has made my mountain to stand strong: You did hide Your Face, and I was troubled.
I cried to You, O’ Yah; and unto Yah…I made supplication.
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise You? Shall it declare Your Truth?
Hear, O’ Yah, and have mercy upon me: Yah, be You my helper.
You has turned for me my mourning into dancing: You has put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
To the end that my honor may sing praise to You, and not be silent. O’ Yah my Father, I will give thanks unto You forever.
In You! O’ Yah, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in Your righteousness.
Bow down Your ear to me; deliver me speedily: be You my strong rock, for an house of defense to save me.
For You are my Rock and my Fortress; therefore for Your Name’s sake lead me, and guide me.
Pull me out of the net that they have laid secretly for me: for You are my Strength.
Into Your Hand I commit my spirit: You has redeemed me, O’ Yah of truth.
I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in Yah.
I will be glad in Your mercy: for You has considered my trouble; You has known my soul in adversities;
And has not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: You has set my feet in a large room.
Have mercy upon me, O’ Yah, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength fail because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbors, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.
I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
But I trusted in You, O’ Yah: I said, You are my Yah!
My times are in Your hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
Make Your Face to shine upon Your Servant: save me for Your mercies’ sake.
Let me not be ashamed, O’ Yah; for I have called upon You: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
Oh how great is Your goodness, which You has laid up for them that fear You; which You has worked for them that trust in You before the sons of men!
You shall hide them in the secret of Your presence from the pride of man: You shall keep them secretly in a Tabernacle from the strife of tongues.
Honored be Yah: for He has showed me His marvelous kindness in a strong city.
For I said in my haste…”I am cut off from before Your eyes:” nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications when I cried unto You.
O’ love Yah, all you His Saints: for Yah preserve the trustworthy, and plentifully reward the honorable doer.
Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in Yah.

When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
For day and night Your Hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.

For this shall every one that is righteous pray unto You in a time when You may be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come near unto him.
You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with Mine Eye.
Be you not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto you.
Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trust in Yah, mercy shall compass him about.
Be glad in Yah, and delight, you righteous: and shout for gladness, all you that are upright in heart.

From the place of His Habitation He look upon all the inhabitants of the earth.

To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

Plead my cause, O’ Yah, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am your Salvation.

For Your arrows stick fast in me, and Your Hand press me sore.
There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my iniquity.

They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that open not his mouth.
Thus I was as a man that hear not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
For in you, O’ Yah, do I hope: You will hear, O’ Yah my Father.
For I said, “Hear me,” lest otherwise they should delight over me: when my foot slip, they magnify themselves against me.
For I am ready to stop, and my sorrow is continually before me.
For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my transgression.
But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
My heart was hot within me, while I was reflecting the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue,
Yah, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
Behold! You has made my days as an hand breadth; and mine age is as nothing before You: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.

Prayers Chapter 40
I waited patiently for Yah; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
And He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our Yah: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yah.
Honored is that man that make Yah his trust, and respect not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Many, O’ Yah, are Your wonderful works which You has done, and Your thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto You: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; mine ears has You opened: burnt offering and transgress offering has You not required.

I delight to do Your will, O’ my Yah: yea, Your Law is within my heart.
I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O’ Yah, You know.
I have not hid Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your Trustworthiness and Your Salvation: I have not concealed Your Loving Kindness and Your Truth from the great congregation.
Withhold not You Your tender mercies from me, O’ Yah: let Your Loving Kindness and Your Truth continually preserve me.
For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart fail me.
Be pleased, O’ Yah, to deliver me: O’ Yah, make haste to help me.
Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha! Aha!
Let all those that seek You delight and be glad in You: let such as love Your Salvation say continually, Yah!! Be Magnified!
But I am poor and needy; yet Yah think upon me: You are my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O’ my Yah!

Prayers Chapter 42
As the deer pant after the water brooks, so pant my soul after You, O’ Yah.
My soul thirst for Yah, for the living Yah: when shall I come and appear before Yah?
My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, “Where is your Yah?”
When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the House of Yah, with the voice of gladness and praise, with a multitude that kept the Set-Apart Day.

I will say unto Yah my Rock, Why has You forgotten me? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, “Where is your God?”

Prayers Chapter 43

O’ send out Your Light and Your Truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Your Mountain, and to Your Tabernacles.
Then will I go unto the Altar of Yah, unto Yah my exceeding gladness: yea, upon the harp will I praise You, O’ my Yah.
Why are you cast down, O’ my soul? and why are you disturbed within me? hope in Yah: for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health of my countenance, and my Yah.
Prayers Chapter 44
We have heard with our ears, O’ Yah, our fathers have told us, what work You did in their days, in the times of old.
How You did drive out the heathen with Your Hand, and planted them; how You did afflict the people, and cast them out.
For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but Your Right Hand, and Your Arm, and the Light of Your Countenance, because You had a favor unto them.
You are my King, O’ Yah: command deliverance for Yahgob.
Through You will we push down our enemies: through Your Name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
But You has saved us from our enemies, and has put them to shame that hated us.
In Yah we boast all the day long, and praise Your Name for ever. Selah.
But You has cast off, and put us to shame; and goes not forth with our armies.
You make us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
You has given us like sheep appointed for meat; and has scattered us among the heathen.
You sell Your people for nothing, and does not increase Your wealth by their price.
You make us a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
You make us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me,
For the voice of him that reproach and blaspheme; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten You, neither have we dealt falsely in Your Covenant.
Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from Your way;
Though You has sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
If we have forgotten the Name of our Yah, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
Shall not Yah search this out? For He know the secrets of the heart.
Yea, for Your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
Awake, why sleep You, O’ Yah? Arise, cast us not off forever.
Wherefore hide You Your Face, and forget our affliction and our oppression?
For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleave unto the earth.
Arise for our help, and redeem us for Your mercies’ sake.
Prayers Chapter 45
My heart is dictating a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the children of men: favor is poured into your lips: therefore Yah has honored you forever.
Gird Your Sword upon Your Thigh, O’ Most Mighty, with Your Honor and Your majesty.
And in your majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and your right hand shall teach you terrible things.
Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under You.
Your Throne, O’ Yah, is for ever and ever: the Scepter of Your Kingdom is a right Scepter.
You love righteousness, and hate wickedness: therefore Yah, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
All your garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made you glad.
Kings’ daughters were among your honorable women: upon your right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
Hearken, O’ daughter, and consider, and incline your ear; forget also your own people, and your father’s house;
So shall the king greatly desire your beauty: for he is your Lord; and worship you him.
And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall in treat your favor.
The king’s daughter is all beautiful within: her clothing is of worked gold.
She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto you.
With gladness shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.
Instead of your fathers shall be your children, whom you may make princes in all the earth.
I will make Your Name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise You for ever and ever.
Prayers Chapter 46
Yah is our refuge and Strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of Yah, the Set-Apart place of the Tabernacles of the Most High.

Yah of hosts is with us; Yah of Yahgob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of Yah, what desolation’s He has made in the earth.
He make wars to cease unto the end of the earth; He break the bow, and cut the spear in sunder; He burn the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am Yah: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth!
Yah of hosts is with us; Yah of Yahgob is our refuge. Selah.

Prayers Chapter 48
Great is Yah, and greatly to be praised in the City of our Yah, in the Mountain of His praise.
Beautiful for situation, the delight of the whole earth, is Mount Sion, on the sides of the north, the city of the Great King.
Yah is known in her palaces for a refuge.
For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
They saw it, and so they marveled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
You break the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
As we have heard, so have we seen in the City of Yah of hosts, in the City of our Yah: Yah will establish it forever. Selah.
We have thought of Your Loving Kindness, O’ Yah, in the midst of Your Temple.
According to Your Name, O’ Yah, so is Your Praise unto the ends of the earth: Your Right Hand is full of righteousness.
Let Mount Sion delight, let the daughters of Yahdah be glad, because of Your Judgments.
Walk about Sion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.

Both low and high, rich and poor, together!
My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to Yah a ransom for him:
For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it cease forever.
That he should still live forever, and not see corruption.
For he see that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue forever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
Nevertheless man being in honor abide not: he is like the beasts that perish.
This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
But Yah will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for He shall receive me. Selah.
Be not you afraid when one is made rich, when his house is increased;
For when he die he shall carry nothing away: his honor shall not descend after him.
Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise you, when you does well to yourself.
He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
Man that is in honor, and understand not, is like the beasts that perish.

The mighty Yah, even Yah, has spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

If I were hungry, I would not tell you: for the world is Mine, and the fullness thereof.
Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
Offer unto Yah thanksgiving; and pay your vows unto the Most High:
And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall honor Me.
But unto the wicked Yah said…”What has you to do to declare My Statutes, or that you should take My Covenant in your mouth?”
“Seeing you hate instruction, and cast My Words behind you.”
“When you saw a thief, then you consented with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.”

“Whoso offer praise honor Me: and to him that order his conversation aright will I show the Salvation of Yah.
Prayers Chapter 51
Have mercy upon me, O’ Yah, according to Your Loving Kindness: according unto the multitude of Your tender mercies blot out my transgressions!
Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my iniquity.
For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my iniquity is ever before me.
Against You, You only, have I transgressed, and done this evil in Your Sight: that You might be justified when You speak, and be clear when You judges.
Behold! I was shaped in iniquity; and in iniquity did my mother conceive me.
Behold! You desire truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part You shall make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me to hear gladness; that the bones which You has broken may delight.
Hide Your Face from my iniquity, and blot out all mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O’ Yah; and renew a right Ruach (spirit) within me.
Cast me not away from Your presence; and take not Your Ruach from me.
Restore unto me the delight of Your Salvation; and uphold me with Your free Ruach (spirit}.
Then will I teach transgressors Your ways; and transgressors shall be converted unto You.
Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O’ Yah, of my Salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
O’ Yah, open You my lips; and my mouth shall show forth Your praise.

The Sacrifices of Yah are a broken Ruach (spirit): a broken and a contrite heart, O’ Yah, You will not despise.
Do good in Your good pleasure unto Sion: build You the walls of Yahrusalem.
Then shall You be pleased with the Sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon Your Altar.

Your tongue devise mischief’s; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
You love evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
Lo, this is the man that made not Yah his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
But I am like a green olive tree in the House of Yah: I trust in the mercy of Yah forever and ever.
I will praise You forever, because You has done it: and I will wait on Your Name; for it is good before Your Saints.
Prayers Chapter 53
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no Yah.” Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that does good.
Yah looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek Yah.
Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that does good, no, not one.
Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon Yah.
There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for Yah has scattered the bones of him that encamp against you: you has put them to shame, because Yah has despised them.
Oh that the Salvation of Yahdaim were come out of Sion! When Yah bring back the captivity of His People, Yahgob shall delight, and Yahdaim shall be glad.
Prayers Chapter 54
Save me, O’ Yah, by Your Name, and judge me by Your Strength!

Prayers Chapter 55
Give ear to my prayer, O’ Yah; and hide not Yourself from my supplication.
Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror has overwhelmed me.
And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
Destroy, O’ Yah, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
But it was you, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the House of Yah in company.
Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
As for me, I will call upon Yah; and Yah shall save me.
Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.
He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
Yah shall hear, and afflict them, even He that abide of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not Yah.
He has put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he has broken his covenant.
The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
Cast your burden upon Yah, and He shall sustain you: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
But You, O’ Yah, shall bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in You.
Prayers Chapter 56
Be merciful unto me, O’ Yah: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppress me.
Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O’ You Most High!
What time I am afraid, I will trust in You.
In Yah I will praise His Word, in Yah I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Every day they twist my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
Shall they escape by iniquity? in Your anger cast down the people, O’ Yah.
You tell my wanderings: put you my tears into Your bottle: are they not in Your book?
When I cry unto You, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for Yah is for me.
In Yah will I praise His Word: in Yah will I praise His Word.
In Yah have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Your vows are upon me, O’ Yah: I will render praises unto You.
For You has delivered my soul from death: will not You deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before Yah in the light of the living?

They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah!
My heart is fixed, O’ Yah, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
Awake up, my praise; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
I will praise You, O’ Yah, among the people: I will sing unto You among the nations.
For Your mercy is great unto the heavens, and Your truth unto the clouds.
Be You exalted, O’ Yah, above the heavens: let Your praise be above all the earth.
Prayers Chapter 58
Do you indeed speak righteousness, O’ congregation? Do you judge uprightly, O’ you sons of men?
Yea, in heart you work wickedness; you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stop her ear;
Which will not listen to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
Break their teeth, O’ Yah, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O’ Yah.
Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bend his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
As a snail which melt, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
Before your pots can feel the thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in His wrath.
The righteous shall delight when he see the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
So that a man shall say, verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily He is Yah that judge in the earth.
Prayers Chapter 59

Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my iniquity, O’ Yah!
They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold!
You therefore, O’ Yah of hosts, of Yahdaim, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
Behold! They belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, does hear?
But You, O’ Yah, shall laugh at them; You shall have all the heathen in derision.
Because of his strength will I wait upon You: for Yah is my defense.
Yah of my mercy shall prevent me: Yah shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by Your Power; and bring them down, O’ Yah our Shield.
For the iniquity of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that Yah rule in Yahgob unto the ends of the earth. Selah!
And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
But I will sing of Your Power; yea, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning: for You has been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
Unto You, O’ my strength, will I sing: for Yah is my defense, and Yah of my mercy.

O’ Yah, You has cast us off, You has scattered us, You has been displeased; O’ turn Yourself to us again.
You has made the earth to tremble; You has broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shake.
You has showed Your People hard things: You has made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
You has given a banner to them that fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
That Your beloved may be delivered; save with Your Right Hand, and hear me.
Yah has spoken in His Honor; I will delight, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the strength of Mine Head; Yahdah is my lawgiver;
Moab is my wash pot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph you because of me.
Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
Will not You, O’ Yah, which had cast us off? and You, O’ Yah, which did not go out with our armies?
Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
Through Yah we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.
Prayers Chapter 61
Hear my cry, O’ Yah; attend unto my prayer!
From the end of the earth will I cry unto You, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You has been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your Tabernacle forever: I will trust in the cover of Your Wings. Selah.
For You, O’ Yah, has heard my vows: You has given me the heritage of those that fear Your Name.
