Tehillim (Psalms)

Judaism
5:22 h
The Jewish Publication Society of America Version (JPS) of the Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible) was the first Bible translation published by the Jewish Publication Society of America and the first translation of the Tanakh into English by a committee of Jews. The full publication title is The Holy Scriptures According to the Masoretic Text: A New Translation with the Aid of Previous Versions and with Constant Consultation of Jewish Authorities. The Book of Psalms (Hebrew: תְּהִלִּים‎, Tehillim, "praises"), commonly referred to simply as Psalms, the Psalter or "the Psalms", is the first book of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Hebrew Bible. The title is derived from the Greek translation, ψαλμοί, psalmoi, meaning "instrumental music" and, by extension, "the words accompanying the music". The book is an anthology of individual psalms, with 150 in the Jewish and Western Christian tradition and more in the Eastern Christian churches.

Hallel- Chapter 1

Happy is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked, {N} nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat 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 streams of water, {N} that bringeth forth its fruit in its season, and whose leaf doth not wither; and in whatsoever he doeth he shall prosper.

Not so the wicked; but they are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the LORD regardeth the way of the righteous; but the way of the wicked shall perish. {P}


Hallel- Chapter 2

Why are the nations in an uproar? And why do the peoples mutter in vain?

The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take counsel together, {N} against the LORD, and against His anointed: ‘Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.’

He that sitteth in heaven laugheth, the Lord hath them in derision.

Then will He speak unto them in His wrath, and affright them in His sore displeasure: ‘Truly it is I that have established My king upon Zion, My holy mountain.’

I will tell of the decree: the LORD said unto me: ‘Thou art My son, this day have I begotten thee.

Ask of Me, and I will give the nations for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession.
