Holy Bible - WEB Translation - Psalm 151 Christianity. Orthodoxy. Catholicism. Sense of life. Psalm 151
Don't be anxious for your life, what you will eat, nor yet for your body, what you will wear.                Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.                Consider the ravens: they don't sow, they don't reap, they have no warehouse or barn, and God feeds them. How much more valuable are you than birds!                Which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his height?                If then you aren't able to do even the least things, why are you anxious about the rest?                Consider the lilies, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.                But if this is how God clothes the grass in the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith?                Don't seek what you will eat or what you will drink; neither be anxious.                For the nations of the world seek after all of these things, but your Father knows that you need these things.                But seek God's Kingdom, and all these things will be added to you.

Psalm 151
   

Back to Holy Bible Index


This Psalm is a genuine one of David, though extra,* composed when he fought in single combat with Goliath.

1 I was small among my brothers,
and youngest in my father’s house.
I tended my father’s sheep.
2 My hands formed a musical instrument,
and my fingers tuned a lute.
3 Who shall tell my Lord?
The Lord himself, he himself hears.
4 He sent forth his angel and took me from my father’s sheep,
and he anointed me with his anointing oil.
5 My brothers were handsome and tall;
but the Lord did not take pleasure in them.
6 I went out to meet the Philistine,
and he cursed me by his idols.
7 But I drew his own sword and beheaded him,
and removed reproach from the children of Israel.

*^ or, supernumerary
