God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
Serve the LORD with fear and rejoice with trembling. … Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head.
Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
