יא הַנֶּחֱמָדִים–מִזָּהָב, וּמִפַּז רָב; וּמְתוּקִים מִדְּבַשׁ, וְנֹפֶת צוּפִים. 11

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

*The Heavens Declare the Glory of GOD*

יב גַּם-עַבְדְּךָ, נִזְהָר בָּהֶם; בְּשָׁמְרָם, עֵקֶב רָב. 12

Moreover by them is Thy servant warned; in keeping of them there is great reward.

*The Heavens Declare the Glory of GOD*

יג שְׁגִיאוֹת מִי-יָבִין; מִנִּסְתָּרוֹת נַקֵּנִי. 13

Who can discern his errors? Clear Thou me from hidden faults.

*The Heavens Declare the Glory of GOD*

יד גַּם מִזֵּדִים, חֲשֹׂךְ עַבְדֶּךָ– אַל-יִמְשְׁלוּ-בִי אָז אֵיתָם;

וְנִקֵּיתִי, מִפֶּשַׁע רָב. 14

Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins, that they may not have dominion over me; {N}

then shall I be faultless, and I shall be clear from great transgression.

*The Heavens Declare the Glory of GOD*

טו יִהְיוּ לְרָצוֹן אִמְרֵי-פִי, וְהֶגְיוֹן לִבִּי לְפָנֶיךָ:

יְהוָה, צוּרִי וְגֹאֲלִי. 15

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before Thee, {N}

Jehovah, my Rock, and my Redeemer. {P}

Chapter 20 *We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. 1

For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

ב יַעַנְךָ יְהוָה, בְּיוֹם צָרָה; יְשַׂגֶּבְךָ, שֵׁם אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב. 2

Jehovah answer thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set thee up on high;

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ג יִשְׁלַח-עֶזְרְךָ מִקֹּדֶשׁ; וּמִצִּיּוֹן, יִסְעָדֶךָּ. 3

Send forth thy help from the sanctuary, and support thee out of Zion;

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ד יִזְכֹּר כָּל-מִנְחֹתֶךָ; וְעוֹלָתְךָ יְדַשְּׁנֶה סֶלָה. 4

Receive the memorial of all thy meal-offerings, and accept the fat of thy burnt-sacrifice;

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

[Selah]

ה יִתֶּן-לְךָ כִלְבָבֶךָ; וְכָל-עֲצָתְךָ יְמַלֵּא. 5

Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ו נְרַנְּנָה, בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ– וּבְשֵׁם-אֱלֹהֵינוּ נִדְגֹּל;

יְמַלֵּא יְהוָה, כָּל-מִשְׁאֲלוֹתֶיךָ. 6

We will shout for joy in thy yeshua, and in the name of our God we will set up our standards; {N}

jehovah fulfil all thy petitions.

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ז עַתָּה יָדַעְתִּי– כִּי הוֹשִׁיעַ יְהוָה, מְשִׁיחוֹ:

יַעֲנֵהוּ, מִשְּׁמֵי קָדְשׁוֹ– בִּגְבֻרוֹת, יֵשַׁע יְמִינוֹ. 7

Now know I jehovah yeshua His messiah;

He will answer him from His holy heaven in yeshua His power.

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ח אֵלֶּה בָרֶכֶב, וְאֵלֶּה בַסּוּסִים;

וַאֲנַחְנוּ, בְּשֵׁם-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ נַזְכִּיר. 8

Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; {N}

but we will make mention of the name of jehovah our God.

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

ט הֵמָּה, כָּרְעוּ וְנָפָלוּ; וַאֲנַחְנוּ קַּמְנוּ, וַנִּתְעוֹדָד. 9

They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright.

*We Will Shout For Joy In Thy Victory*

י יְהוָה הוֹשִׁיעָה: הַמֶּלֶךְ, יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם-קָרְאֵנוּ. 10

Save us jehovah; let the King answer us in the day that we call. {P}
