February 6: Psalm 37; Exodus 36:8-38

Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward doers of unrighteousness.
For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb.

Trust in Yahweh and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in Yahweh;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to Yahweh,
Trust in Him, and He will do it.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light
And your judgment as the noonday.

Be still in Yahweh and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out schemes of wickedness.

Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who hope for Yahweh, they will inherit the land.

Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
You will look carefully at his place, and he will not be there.
But the lowly will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant peace.
•••

But the salvation of the righteous is from Yahweh;
He is their strength in time of distress.
Yahweh helps them and protects them;
He protects them from the wicked and saves them,
Because they take refuge in Him.

February 5: Psalm 36; Exodus 33-36:7

Your lovingkindness, O Yahweh, is in the heavens,
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;
Your judgments are like a great deep.
O Yahweh, You save man and beast.
How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
And the sons of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings.
They are satisfied from the richness of Your house;
And You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.
For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.

So now, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight.
•••
Then Yahweh passed by in front of him and called out, “Yahweh, Yahweh God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression, and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”
from Exodus 33

February 2: Psalm 33; Exodus 24-26

The counsel of Yahweh stands forever,
The thoughts of His heart from generation to generation.
Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh,
The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
•••
Our soul is patient for Yahweh;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.
Let Your lovingkindness, O Yahweh, be upon us,
As we wait for You.

February 1: Psalm 32; Exodus 21-23

How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered!
How blessed is the man whose iniquity Yahweh will not take into account,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
•••

Many are the sorrows of the wicked,
But he who trusts in Yahweh, lovingkindness shall surround him.
Be glad in Yahweh and rejoice, you righteous ones;
And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart.

January 31: Psalm 31; Exodus 18-20

How great is Your goodness,
Which You have stored up for those who fear You,
Which You have worked for those who take refuge in You,
Before the sons of men!
You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man;
You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues.
Blessed be Yahweh,
For He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city.
As for me, I said in my alarm,
“I am cut off from before Your eyes”;
Nevertheless, You heard the voice of my supplications
When I cried to You for help.

Oh, love Yahweh, all you His holy ones!
Yahweh guards the faithful
But repays fully the one who acts in lofty pride.
Be strong and let your heart take courage,
All you who wait for Yahweh.

January 30: Psalm 30; Exodus 15-17

Sing praise to Yahweh, you His holy ones,
And give thanks for the remembrance of His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for a lifetime;
Weeping may last for the night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.
•••
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
That my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O Yahweh my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
