Daily Psalms of the Week

Did you know that there is a Psalm for each day of the week (2 for Sunday)? The Psalms, and many other Bible verses, are used in Granny Magic and Southern Hoodoo/Rootwork/Conjure for the powers they hold. Whether one believes in the God of the Bible or the Divine by any other name in general doesn't matter. The power of the words comes from the same Source.
Daily Psalms of the Week

Psalm 95
1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

 2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

 3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

 4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.

 5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

 6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

 7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

 8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

 9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.

 10 Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:

 11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

Psalm 96
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.

 2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

 3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

 4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

 5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

 6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.

 7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

 8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.

 9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.

 10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

 11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

 12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

 13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

Psalm 97
1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

 2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

 3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

 4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

 5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

 6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.

 7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.

 8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.

 9 For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.

 10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

 11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

 12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Psalm 98
1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.

 2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.

 3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

 4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

 5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

 6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

 7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

 8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together

 9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

Psalm 99
1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

 2 The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.

 3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

 4 The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

 5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

 6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

 7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

 8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

 9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.

Psalm 100
1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

 2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

 3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

 4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Sunday (2):
Psalm 110 (morning)
1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

 2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

 4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

 5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

 6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Psalm 106 (afternoon)
1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

 2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?

 3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

 4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;

 5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.

 6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

 7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.

 8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.

 9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

 10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

 11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.

 12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

 13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.

 15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

 16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.

 17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram.

 18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

 19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

 20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

 21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

 22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.

 23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.

 24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:

 25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.

 26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:

 27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

 28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

 29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.

 30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed.

 31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.

 32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:

 33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

 34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:

 35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.

 36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

 39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

 40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

 41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.

 43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

 44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:

 45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.

 46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

 47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.

 48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
