Tehillim / Psalms
Here are two of the Tehillim / Psalms that we recommend you to say along with our 40 day prayers.
Tehillim / Psalm 20
The second verse of this chapter beseeches G-d [Hashem] to answer your prayers in times of trouble. This chapter is appropriate to be said in times of trouble and distress. The main theme of the chapter is focused on G-d sending us salvation.
|א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד||
1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.|
|ב יַעַנְךָ יְהוָה, בְּיוֹם צָרָה; יְשַׂגֶּבְךָ, שֵׁם אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב||
2 The LORD will answer you on the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob set you up on high;|
|ג יִשְׁלַח-עֶזְרְךָ מִקֹּדֶשׁ; וּמִצִּיּוֹן, יִסְעָדֶךָּ||
3 Send your help from the sanctuary, and support you out of Zion;|
|ד יִזְכֹּר כָּל-מִנְחֹתֶךָ; וְעוֹלָתְךָ יְדַשְּׁנֶה סֶלָה||
4 Recall of all your meal-offerings, and accept the fat of your burnt-sacrifice; Selah|
|ה יִתֶּן-לְךָ כִלְבָבֶךָ; וְכָל-עֲצָתְךָ יְמַלֵּא||5 He shall grant you according to your heart, and fulfil all your counsel.|
|ו נְרַנְּנָה, בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ-- וּבְשֵׁם-אֱלֹהֵינוּ נִדְגֹּל; יְמַלֵּא יְהוָה, כָּל-מִשְׁאֲלוֹתֶיךָ||
6 We will shout for joy in your victory, and in the name of our God we will set up our standards; the LORD fulfil all your petitions.|
|ז עַתָּה יָדַעְתִּי-- כִּי הוֹשִׁיעַ יְהוָה, מְשִׁיחוֹ: יַעֲנֵהוּ, מִשְּׁמֵי קָדְשׁוֹ-- בִּגְבֻרוֹת, יֵשַׁע יְמִינוֹ||
7 Now know I that the LORD saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand.|
|ח אֵלֶּה בָרֶכֶב, וְאֵלֶּה בַסּוּסִים; וַאֲנַחְנוּ, בְּשֵׁם-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ נַזְכִּיר||
8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will recall of the name of the LORD our God.|
|ט הֵמָּה, כָּרְעוּ וְנָפָלוּ; וַאֲנַחְנוּ קַּמְנוּ, וַנִּתְעוֹדָד||
9 They are bowed down and fallen; but we are upright, and standing.|
|י יְהוָה הוֹשִׁיעָה: הַמֶּלֶךְ, יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיוֹם-קָרְאֵנוּ||10 Save, LORD; let the King answer us on the day that we call.|
