Psalm 7.
David sings a song unto the Lord.
O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me lest he tear my soul like a lion rendering it in pieces, while there is none to deliver O Lord my God. If I have done this, if there be iniquity in my hands. If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me, (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy), let the enemy persecute my soul and take it; yea let him him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust Selah. Arise O Lord in thine anger lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies and awake for me in the judgement that thou thou hast commanded. So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about for their sake; therefore return thou on high. The Lord shall judge the people; judge me O Lord according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity is in me. O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just for the righteous. God trieth the hearts and the reins. My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous; and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turns not he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow and made it ready. He has also prepared for him the instruments of death. He ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. Behold he travaileth in iniquity and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. He maketh a pit, digged it, and is fallen into the pit which he which he made. His mischief shall return unto his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate. I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most

Psalm 6- A Psalm of David
A Cry for Mercy
O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, nor chasten me in thy hot displeasure.  Have mercy on me O Lord, for I am weak O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed. My soul is also sore vexed, but thou O Lord how long? Return O Lord and deliver my soul. O Save me for thy mercies’ sake. For in death there is no remembrance of thee; in the grave who shall give thee thanks. I am weary with my groaning, all the night I make my bed to swim. I water my couch with my tears. My eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all my enemies. Depart from me all ye workers of iniquity; for the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping. The Lord has heard my supplication; the Lord will receive my prayer. Let all my enemies be ashamed and sore vexed; let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

Psalm 5 A Prayer for Guidance
A Psalm of David.
Give ear to my words O Lord, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of of my cry, my King, and my God, for unto thee will I pray. My voice shall thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight thou hateth all workers of iniquity. Thou shall destroy them that speak leasing. The Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. Lead me O Lord in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face. For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward path is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulcher; they flatter with their tongue. Destroy thou them O God. Let them fall by their own counsels. Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee; but let all those that put their trust in thee, rejoice. Let them ever shout for joy because thou defendeth them. Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Psalm 4.
This is an evening song, written by David, and sent to the chief Musician, and intended to be played especially on a stringed instrument. “Hear me when I call, O God, of my righteousness. Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me and hear my prayer. O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? How long will ye love vanity and seek after leasing? Selah. But know that the Lord has set apart him that is godly for himself; the Lord will hear when I call upon him. Stand in awe and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still, Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.  There are many that say, “Who will show us any good?”  Lord lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart more than in the time when their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep; for thou, Lord, only makes me dwell in safety.[David said he was “enlarged.” He did not mean thereby he got fat or wealthy. What he meant was that his trials in adversity made him a bigger man, stronger, wiser and all the better for having come through suffering. So now he says to God, Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress.”]

Psalm 3  A Morning Psalm
A Psalm of David
Lord how are they increased that trouble me; many are they that rise up against me. Many there be who say of my soul there is no help for him with God; but Thou O Lord art a shield for me. My glory and the lifter up of my head. I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and He heard me out of the holy hill. I laid me down and slept; I awakened, for the Lord sustaineth me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people that have set themselves against me round about. Arise O Lord; save me O my God; for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of of the ungodly. Salvation belongeth unto the Lord. Thy blessing is upon Thy people.

Psalm 2
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord, and against the anointed saying:  ”Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in his wrath and vex them in his displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon the holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree; the Lord has said unto me, “Thou art my son this day have I begotten thee.”  Ask of me and I will give thee the heathen for an inheritance and the uttermost part of the earth for thy possession. Thou shall break them with a rod of iron thou shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. Be wise now, therefore, O ye kings be introduced, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the son lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Psalm 1 – A Psalm of David, speaks of two men, two ways to destinies.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, not stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth his fruit in his season. His leaf also shall not wither and whatsoever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous; but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”
