Day 1  •  Psal ms, part 1  9 You will break them with an iron scepter. You will smash them to pieces like clay pots.” Kings, be wise! Rulers of the earth, be warned! Serve the Lord and have respect for him. Celebrate his rule with trembling. Obey the son completely, or he will be angry. Your way of life will lead to your death. His anger can blaze out at any moment. Blessed are all those who go to him for safety. Psalm 4 For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments. My faithful God, answer me when I call out to you. Give me rest from my trouble. Have mercy on me. Hear my prayer. How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love what will certainly fail you? How long will you pray to statues of gods? Remember that the Lord has set apart his faithful servant for himself. The Lord hears me when I call out to him. Tremble and do not sin. When you are in bed, look deep down inside yourself and be silent. Offer to the Lord the sacrifices that godly people offer. Trust in him. Lord, many are asking, “Who will make us successful?” Lord, may you do good things for us. Fill my heart with joy when the people have lots of grain and fresh wine. In peace I will lie down and sleep. Lord, you alone keep me safe.
