Psalm 5

¹Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.

Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.

My voice shalt 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 hatest all workers of iniquity.

Thou shalt 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 part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

10 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.

11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Psalm 4

¹Hear 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 hath set apart him that is godly for himself: theLord will hear when I call unto 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 be many that say, Who will shew 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 that their corn and their wine increased.

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks 2016-Week 5

Week 5. By now some teams are out of the running for the big prize, like LSU and Notre Dame. Can they salvage something of the season? Find out Saturday. For now, guess the winners of the following ten games, including a Tiger match-up in Baton Rouge and an Irish visit with the Orange. Also, Tychicus chose the other Red River Rivalry for the tie breaker with the Cowboys hosting the Longhorns. Chose the winner and guess the score on that game. It could get you the opportunity for bragging rights.

Get your picks in by Friday evening 9:00 PM EDT!

  1. #7 Stanford @ #10 Washington-Friday night lights in Seattle which will have a deciding factor in the PAC 12.

  2. Navy @ Air Force – The first in the Commander in Chief trophy games.

  3. #11 Tennessee @ #25 Georgia – Can the Volunteers continue to dominate other SEC teams? The Dawgs at least get the home field.

  4. Purdue @ Maryland – I thought Chas would prefer this one over the South Carolina game against Texas A&M.

  5. #8 Wisconsin @ #4 Michigan – The big game in the B1G 10.

  6. Mizzou @ LSU – Two SEC Tigers who haven’t had much to roar about lately.

  7. #3 Louisville @ #5 Clemson – Can Louisville keep up its trend of bringing down top teams?

  8. Utah State @ #24 Boise State – Since everyone picks the Broncos when I have them here, I thought I’d include them again.

  9. Notre Dame @ Syracuse – The Irish were embarrassed by Duke last week at home. Can they regroup on the road?

10.Choose winner and final score Tie Breaker: #22 Texas @ Oklahoma St. – The Longhorns are ranked again. The Cowboys aren’t. Let’s see if that stays the same.

Psalm 3

¹Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.

Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

I cried unto the Lord with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.

I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained 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 the ungodly.

Salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
