My shield is God Most High,    who saves the upright in heart. (Psalm 7:10)
When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,

what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels    
and crowned them with glory and honour.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas. (Psalm 8:3-8)
He rules the world in righteousness
    and judges the peoples with equity.

You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,

defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror. (Psalm 10:17-18) 

For the Lord is righteous,
    he loves justice;
    the upright will see his face. (Psalm 11:7)

‘Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan,
    I will now arise,’ says the Lord.

    my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:2)

    he drew me out of deep waters.

He brought me out into a spacious place;    he rescued me because he delighted in me. (Psalm 18:16-19)

Day 199 - Psalm 22, 23 & 24; Acts 20:1-16
In you our ancestors put their trust;
    they trusted and you delivered them.

To you they cried out and were saved;    in you they trusted and were not put to shame (Psalm 22:4-5)
Yet you brought me out of the womb;
    you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast.

From birth I was cast on you;    from my mother’s womb you have been my God. (Psalm 22:9-10)
For he has not despised or scorned
    the suffering of the afflicted one;
he has not hidden his face from him
    but has listened to his cry for help. (Psalm 22:24)
 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. 
     He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,   

      he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for his name’s sake. 

Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,

 I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    for ever. (Psalm 23)
