1. I will praise You O Lord, wiith my whole heart, I will show forth (recount and tell aloud) all Your marvelous works and wonderful deeds!
2. I will rejoice in You and be in high spirits; I will sing praises to Your Name, O Most High (Sovereign One)!
3. When my enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished before You. 
4. For You maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging righteously. 
5. You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked; You have blotted their name for ever and ever. 
6. The enemy have been cut off and have vanished in everlasting ruins. You have plucked up and overthrown their cities; the very memory of them have perished and vanished. 
7. But the Lord shall remain and continue forever; He has prepared and established His throne for judgement. 
8. He will judge the world in righteousness (rightness and equity); He will minister justice to the peoples in uprightness.  
9. The Lord also will be a Refuge and a High Tower for the oppressed, a refuge and a stronghold in times of trouble (high cost, destitution, and desperation.) 
10. And they who know Your Name (Your loyal followers) trust in You, for You Lord, do not abandon those who seek Your help. 
11. Sing praises the the Lord Who rules in Zion! Tell the nations what He Has done!

3. In U wil ek bly wees en juig; ek wil psalmsing tot eer van U Naam, O Allerhoogste. 
4. Omdat my vyande agteruitwyk, struikel en omkom van voor U aangesig
5. Want U het my reg en my regsaak behandel; U het gaan sit op die troon, O Regverdige Regter!
6. U het die heidene gedreig, die goddelose laat omkom, hulle naam uitgedelg, vir ewig en altyd. 
7. Die vyande het omgekom - pynhope vir ewig; Ook die stede wat U verwoes het; hulle gedagtenis, ja, dié het vergaan. 
8. Maar die Here sit vir ewig; Hy het Sy troon reggesit vir die oordeel
9. En Hyself sal die wêreld oordeel in geregtigheid, en die volke vonnis met reg.
10. So is die Here dan 'n rotsvesting vir die verdrukte, 'n rotsvesting in tye van benoudheid. 
11. En hulle wat U Naam ken, sal op U vertrou, omdat U die wat U soek nie verlaat nie, O Here!
12. Psalmsing tot eer van die Here, wat op Sion woon; verkondig onder die volke Sy dade. 
13. Want Hy wat die bloed soek, dink aan hulle; HY VERGEET NIE DIE GEROEP VAN DIE ELLENDIGES NIE.

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
PSALM 18.
1. English - (Amplified Bible Version)
[Psalm 18:1-13]
1. I love You fervently and devotedly, O Lord, my Strength. 
2. The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer; my God, my keen and firm Strength, in Whom I will trust and take refuge; my Shield and the horn of my salvation, my High Tower.  
(A song of David, after God saved him from the hand of his enemies, as well as the hand of Saul.)
3. I will call upon the Lord, Who is to be praised; so I shall be saved from my enemies. 
4. The cords or bands of death surrounded me, and the streams of ungodliness and the torrents of ruin terrified me.   
5. The cords of Sheol (the place of the dead) surrounded me; the snares of death confronted and came upon me. 
6. In my distress (when seemingly closed in) I called upon the Lord and cried to my God; He heard my voice out of His temple (heavenly dwelling place), and my cry came before Him, into His (very) ears. 
7. Then the earth quaked and rocked, the foundations also of the mountains trembled; they moved and were shaken, because He was indignant and angry. 
8. There went up smoke from His nostrils; and lightning out of His mouth devoured; coals were kindled by it. 
9. He bowed the heavens also and came down; and thick darkness was under His feet. 
10. And He rode upon a cherub (a storm)  and flew (swiftly); yes, He sped on with the wings of the wind. 
11. He made darkness His secret hiding place; as His pavilion (His canopy) round about Him, were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 
12. Out of the brightness before Him there broke forth through His thick clouds hailstones and coals of fire. 
13. The Lord also thundered from the heavens, and the Most High uttered His voice, amid hailstones and coals of fire.  

WOORD VAN DIE DAG: 
[Psalm 57:"11,12]
11. Want U goedertierenheid is groot tot by die hemele, en U trou tot by die wolke.

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG:
PSALM 18.
2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afrikaanse Vertaling)
[Psalm 18:1-14]
1. 'n Psalm van David, die kneg van die Here, wat die woorde van hierdie lied tot die Here gespreek het, op die dag toe die Here hom gered het uit die hand van al sy vyande, en uit die hand van Saul. 
2. Ek het U hartlik lief, Here, my Sterkte. 
3. Die Here is my Rots en my Bergvesting en my Redder; my Rots, my God by wie ek skuil; my Skild en die horing van my heil, my Rotsvesting. 
4. Ek roep die Here aan wat lofwaardig is, en  van my vyande word ek verlos. 
5. Bande van die dood het my omring, en strome van onheil het my oorval. 
6. Bande van die doderyk was rondom my; strikke van die dood het my teëgekom. 
7. Toe ek benoud was, het ek die Here aangeroep, en ek het tot my God geroep om hulp; Hy het my stem uit Sy paleis gehoor, en my hulpgeroep voor Sy aangesig het in Sy ore gekom.  
8. Toe het die aarde geskud en gebewe; die fondamente van die berge het gesidder en geskud, omdat Hy toornig was. 
9. Rook in Sy neus het opgegaan; en 'n vuur uit Sy mond het verteer; kole uit Hom het gebrand. 
10. En Hy het die hemel gebuig en neergedaal, en donkerheid was onder Sy voete.  
11. En Hy het op 'n gérub gery en gevlieg, ja, Hy het gesweef op die vleuels van die wind. 
12. Duisternis het Hy Sy skuilplek gemaak, Sy hut rondom Hom; duisternis van waters, diktes van wolke. 
13. Deur die glans voor Hom, het Sy wolke verbygetrek, hael en gloeiende kole. 
14. En die Here het in die hemel gedonder, en die Allerhoogste het Sy stem laat hoor, hael en gloeiende kole!

PSALM 17. - PSALM 17.

Thursday 23 April 2015. 
WORD OF THE DAY:
[Psalm 150:6]
Let everything that has breath, and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
PSALM 17.
1. English - (Amplified Bible Version)
[Psalm 17:1-15]
A prayer of David. 
1. Hear the right (my righteous cause), O Lord; listen to my shrill, piercing cry. Give ear to my prayer, that comes from unfeigned and guileless lips. 
2. Let my sentence of vindication come from You! May Your eyes behold the things that are just and upright. 
3. You have proved my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and found nothing (no evil purpose in me); I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. 
4. Concerning the works of men, by the word of Your lips I have avoided the ways of the violent (the paths of the destroyer).
5. My steps have held closely to Your paths (to the tracks of the One Who Has gone on before); my feet have not slipped. 
6. I have called upon You O God, for You will hear me; incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech. 
7. Show Your marvelous loving-kindness, O You who save by Your right hand those who trust and take refuge in You from those who rise up against them. 
8. Keep and guard me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings, 
9. From the wicked who despoil and oppress me, my deadly adversaries who surround me.  
10. They are enclosed in their own prosperity and have shut up their hearts to pity; with their mouths they make exorbitant claims and proudly and arrogantly speak.  
11. They track us down in each step we take; now they surround us; they set their eyes to cast us to the ground. 
12. Like a lion, greedy and eager to tear his prey. And as a young lion lurking in hidden places. 
13. Arise, O Lord! Confront and forestall them, cast them down! Deliver my life from the wicked by Your sword,
14. From men by Your hand, O Lord,from  men of this world (these poor moths of the night), whose portion in life is idle and vain. Their bellies are filled with Your hidden treasure (what You have stored up); their children are satiated, and they leave the rest (of their) wealth to their babes. 
15. As for me, I will continue beholding Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice and right standing with You); I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake (to find myself) beholding Your form (and having sweet communion with You).

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG: 
2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afrikaanse Vertaling)
PSALM 17.
[Psalm 17:1-15]
1. 'n Gebed van Dawid. Here, hoor 'n regverdige saak, let op my smeking; luister tog na my gebed, met onbedrieglike lippe. 
2. Laat U reg voor my aangesig uitgaan; laat U oë regverdig sien. 
3. U het my hart getoets, dit in die nag ondersoek. U het my gekeur, U vind niks nie; wat ek ook dink, my mond oortree nie. 
4. Aangaande die handelinge van die mens, ék het deur die woord van U lippe, die paaie van die geweldenaar vermy. 
5. My gange het vasgehou aan U spore, my voetstappe het nie gewankel nie. 
6. Ek roep U aan, want U verhoor my, O God! Neig U oor tot my, luister na my woord!
7. Maak U gunsbewyse wonderbaar, O Verlosser, van die wat by U regterhand skuil vir teëstanders!
8. Bewaar my soos 'n oogappel; verberg my in die skaduwee van U vleuels. 
9. Teen die goddelose wat my geweld aandoen, my doodsvyande wat my omring. 
10. Hulle het hul gevoel afgesluit; met hul mond, spreek hulle hoogmoedig. 
11. Nou het hulle ons in ons gang omsingel; hulle rig hulle daarop om ons op die grond uit te strek. 
12. Hy is soos 'n leeu wat begerig is om te verskeur, en soos 'n jong leeu wat in skuilplekke klaar lê. 
13. Staan op Here, gaan hom tegemoet, werp hom neer; red my van die goddelose met U swaard;
14. Met U hand van die manne, O Here, van die manne wie se deel in die lewe uit die wêreld is, en wie se buik U vul met U verborge skat; wie se seuns daarvan nog sat is, wat weer hulle oorskot aan hulle kinders laat agterbly. 
15. Maar ek sal U aangesig in geregtigheid aanskou; ek sal versadig word met U beeld as ek wakker word.

[Psalm 11:1-7]
1. A Psalm of David. In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Fly like a bird to your mountain?

2. "Want kyk, die goddelose span die boog; hulle het hul pyl op die snaar reggesit om in die donker te skiet na die opregtes van hart. 
3. "As die fondamente omgegooi word, wat kan die regverdige doen?"
4. Die Here is in Sy heilige paleis; die troon van die Here is in die hemel; Sy oë sien, Sy ooglede toets die mensekinders. 
5. Die Here toets die regverdige; maar Sy siel haat die goddelose en die wat geweld liefhet
6. Hy sal op die goddelose vangnette, vuur en swawel laat reën; en 'n gloeiende wind sal die deel van hulle beker wees. 
7. Want die Here is regverdig. Hy het geregtighede lief; die opregtes sal Sy aangesig sien.

PSALM 5. - PSALM 5.

Saturday 18 April 2015.  
WORD OF THE DAY:
[John3:8]
The wind goes where its pleasure takes it, and the sound of it comes to your ears, but you are unable to say where it comes from, and where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. 

PSALM 5.
MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
1. English - (BBE Version)
[Psalm 5:1b-12]
1b. Give ear to my words, O Lord; give thought to my heart-searchings. 
2. Let the voice of my cry come to You, my King and my God; for to You I will make my prayer. 
3. My voice will come to You in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I send my prayer to You, and keep watch. 
4. For You are not a God Who takes pleasure in wrongdoing; there is no evil with You. 
5. The sons of pride have no place before You; You are a hater of all workers of evil. 
6. You will send destruction on those whose words are false; the cruel man and the man of deceit are hated by the Lord. 
7. But as for me, I will come into Your house, in the full measure of Your mercy; and in Your fear I will give worship, turning my eyes to Your holy Temple. 
8. Be my guide, O Lord, in the ways of my righteousness, because of those who are against me; make Your way straight before my face. 
9. For no faith may be put in their words; their inner part is nothing but evil; their throat is like an open place of the dead; smooth are the words of their tongues. 
10. Send them to destruction, O Lord; let their evil designs be the cause of their fall; let them be forced out by all their sins; because they have gone against Your authority. (They have rebelled against You.)
11. But let all those who put their faith in You be glad with cries of joy at all times, and let all tho lovers of Your Name be glad in You. 
12. For You Lord, will bless the (uncompromisingly) righteous, (him who is upright and in right standing with You); as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill, (pleasure and favour.)

Saterdag 18 April 2015.
WOORD VAN DIE DAG:

PSALM 5.
2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afikaanse Vertaling)
[Psalm 5:2-13]
2. O Here, luister na my woorde, let op my versugting
3. Gee ag op die stem van my hulpgeroep, my koning en my God, want tot U bid ek. 
4. In die môre Here, sal U my stem hoor; in die môre sal ek dit aan U voorlê en afwag. 
5. Want U is nie 'n God wat 'n behae het in goddeloosheid nIe; die kwaaddoener sal by U nie vertoef nie. 
6. Die onsinniges sal voor oë nie standhou nie; U haat al die werkers van ongeregtigheid. 
7. U sal die leuensprekers laat omkom; van die man van en bedrog, het die Here 'n afsku. 
8. Maar ek, deur die grootheid van U goedertierenheid mag ek in U huis ingaan, my buig na U heilige tempel, in U vrees. 
9. Here, lei my in U geregtigheid om my vyande ontwil; maak U weg voor my reg. 
10. Want in hulle mond is niks betroubaars nie; hulle binneste bring onheil; hulle keel is 'n oop graf; hulle maak hulle tong glad. 
11. Verklaar hulle skuldig, O God! Laat hulle val deur hul planne; dryf hulle weg oor die menigte van hul oortredinge. Want hulle is wederstrewig teen U. 
12. Maar laat húlle almal bly wees wat by U skuil; laat hulle vir ewig jubel, en beskut U hulle; en laat in U juig die wat U Naam liefhet. 
13. Want U seën die regverdige, O Here, U omring hom met welbehae soos met 'n skild.

4. Weet tog dat die Here vir Hom 'n gunsgenoot afgesonder het; die Here hoor as ek Hom aanroep!
5. Sidder, en moenie sondig nie; spreek in julle hart op julle bed, en wees stil. Sela. 
6. Offer offerandes van geregtigheid, en vertrou op die Here. 
7. Baie sê: "Wie sal ons die goeie laat sien? Verhef oor ons die lig van U aangesig, O Here!"
8. Groter vreugde het U in my hart gegee as wanneer hulle koring en hulle mos oorvloedig is. 
9. Ek wil in vrede gaan lê en meteens aan die slaap raak, want U O Here alleen, laat my in veiligheid woon.

PSALM 1. - PSALM 1.

Woensdag 15 April 2015. 
WOORD VAN DIE DAG:
PSALM 1.
[Psalm 1:1-6]
1. Welgeluksalig is die man wat nie wandel in die raad van die goddelose en nie staan op die weg van die sondaars, en nie sit in die kring van die spotters nie;
2. Maar sy behae is in die wet van die Here, en hy oordink Sy wet dag en nag. 
3. En hy sal wees soos 'n boom wat geplant is by waterstrome, wat sy vrugte gee op sy tyd, en waarvan die blare nie verwelk nie. En alles wat hy doen, voer hy voorspoedig uit. 
4. So is die goddelose mense nie, maar soos kaf wat die wind verstrooi. 
5. Daarom sal die goddelose nie bestaan in die oordeel, en die sondaars in die vergadering van die regverdiges nie. 
6. Want die Here ken die weg van die regverdiges, maar die weg van die goddelose sal vergaan

Wednesday 15 April 2015. 
WORD OF THE DAY
PSALM 1.
1. Happy is the man who does not go in the company of the sinners, or take his place in the way of evil-doers, or in the seat of those who do not give honour to the Lord. 
2. But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and whose mind is on His law day and night. 
3. He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, which gives its fruit at rhe right time, whose leaves will ever be green; and he will do well in all his undertakings. 
4. The evil-doers are not so; but like the dust from the grain, which the wind takes away. 
5. For this cause there will be no mercy for the sinners when they are judged, and the evil-doers will have no place among the upright.  
6. Because the Lord sees the way of the upright, but the end of the sinner is destruction.

THEREFORE GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS. / GAAN DAN HEEN, MAAK DISSIPELS VAN AL DIE NASIES.

Saturday 11 April 2015. 
WORD OF THE DAY:
[John 12:24]
"Most assuredly, I say to you, unless an ear of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains alone, but if it dies, it produces much grain."

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
THEREFORE GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES  OF ALL NATIONS:
1. English - (New King James Version)
[Matthew 28:16-20]
16. Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 
17. And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.  
18. Then Jesus came and spoke to them saying: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20. "Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I Am with you always, even to the end of the age" 

[Mark 16:14-20]
14. Afterward He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 
15. And He said to them: "Go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16. "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 
17. "And these signs will follow those who  believe: In My Name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.  
18. "They will take up serpents, and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. "
19. So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 
20. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word through the accompanying signs. Amen. 

Saterdag 11 April 2015.
WOORD VAN DIE DAG:
[Johannes 12:24]
"Voorwaar, voorwaar Ek sê vir julle: as die koringkorrel nie in die grond val en sterf nie, bly dit alleen; maar as dit sterf, dra dit veel vrug."

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG:
GAAN DAN HEEN, MAAK DISSIPELS VAN AL DIE NASIES: 
[Matthéüs 28:16-20]
16. En die elf dissipels het na Galiléa gegaan, na die berg waar Jesus hulle bestel het. 
17. En toe hulle Hom sien, het hulle Hom aanbid; maar sommige het getwyfel. 
18. En Jesus het nader gekom en met hulle gespreek en gesê: "Aan My is gegee alle mag in die hemel en op die aarde. 
19. "Gaan dan heen, maak dissipels van al die nasies, en doop hulle in die Naam van die Vader en die Seun en die Heilige Gees; en leer hulle om alles te onderhou wat Ek julle beveel het. 
20. "En kyk, Ek is met julle al die dae tot aan die voleinding van die wêreld. Amen."

[Markus 16:14-20]
14. Later het Hy aan die elf self verskyn terwyl hulle aan tafel was, en Hy het hulle hul ongeloof en hardheid van hart verwyt, omdat hulle die wat Hom ná Sy opstanding gesien het, nie geglo het nie. 
15. En Hy het vir hulle gesê: "Gaan die hele wêreld in, en verkondig die evangelie aan die ganse mensdom. 
16. "Hy wat glo en hom laat doop, sal gered word; maar hy wat nie glo nie, sal veroordeel word. 
17. "En vir die wat geglo het, sal hierdie tekens volg: In My Naam sal hulle duiwels uitdryf, met nuwe tale sal hulle spreek,
18. "Slange sal hulle opneem; en as hulle iets dodeliks drink, sal dit hulle geen kwaad doen nie; op siekes sal hulle die hande lê, en hulle sal gesond word. 
19. Nadat die Here dan met hulle gespreek het, is Hy opgeneem in die hemel en het gaan sit aan die regterhand van God. 
20. Maar hulle het uitgegaan en oral gepreek, en die Here het saamgewerk en die Woord bevestig deur tekens wat daarop gevolg het. Amen.

THE GUARDS' REPORT. / DIE WAGTE SE VERSLAG.

Friday 10 April 2015.
WORD OF THE DAY:
[Philippians 2:8-11]
8. And being found in appearance as a Man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death - even death on the cross. 
9. Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the Name that is above every Name -
10. That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth,
11. And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
THE GUARDS' REPORT:
1. English - (New International Version)
[Matthew 28:11-15]
11. While the women were in their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 
12. When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money;
13. Telling them: "You are to say: 'His disciples came during the night and stole Him away, while we were asleep.'
14. "If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble."
15. So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day. 

Vrydag 10 April 2015.
WOORD VAN DIE DAG:
[Filippense 2:8-11]
8. En in gedaante gevind as 'n Mens, het Hy Homself verneder deur gehoorsaam te word tot die dood toe, ja, die dood van die kruis.  
9. Daarom het God Hom ook uitermate verhoog, en Hom 'n Naam gegee wat bo elke ander Naam is, -
10. Sodat in die Naam van Jesus sou buig elke knie van die wat in die hemel en die wat op die aarde en die wat onder die aarde is. 
11. En elke tong sou bely dat Jesus Christus die Here is, tot heerlikheid van God die Vader.

11. En terwyl hulle op weg was, kom daar sommige van die wag in die stad en vertel die owerpriesters alles wat gebeur het. 
12. En nadat hulle saam met die ouderlinge vergader en raad gehou het, het hulle die soldate baie geld gegee. 
13. En gesê: "Julle moet sê: 'Sy dissipels het in die nag gekom en Hom gesteel terwyl ons aan die slaap was.'  
14. "En as dit by die goewerneur gehoor word, sal ons hom tevrede stel en maak dat julle sonder sorg is."
15. Hulle het toe die geld geneem en gedoen soos hulle geleer was. En hierdie verhaal is versprei onder die Jode, tot vandag toe.
