A Psalm of Asaph
1 EL, EL, EL SHADDAI has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the setting of the sun.
2 Out of Zion the perfection of beauty EL has shined forth.
3 Our God comes and does not keep silence. A fire burns before him and around him it thunders mightily.
4 He calles to the heavens above and to the earth so that he may judge his people.
5 “Gather my saints altogether unto me those that have made a covenant with me by offerimg a sacrifice.“
6 The heavens declare his righteousness for EL is judge. __ Selah (EL is my rock)
7 “Hear O my people and I will speak. O Israel I will be your witness; that I EL, am your God.“
A Song of Ascent
1 They that trust in EL SHADDAI are as mount Zion which cannot be moved but abides forever.
2 As the mountains are around Jerusalem so is EL SHADDAI around his people from this time forth and unto eternity.
3 For the rod of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous so that the righteous may not put forth their hands unto iniquity.
4 Do good, EL SHADDAI, unto them that are good and also unto them that are honest in their hearts.
5 But as for those who turn aside unto their crooked ways, EL SHADDAI will lead them away with the workers of iniquity. eace be upon Israel.
