Psalm 12

1 Save, O Lord, for the godly one is gone;
for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man.
2 Everyone utters lies to his neighbor;
with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.

3 May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
the tongue that makes great boasts,
4 those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail,
our lips are with us; who is master over us?”

5 “Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan,
I will now arise,” says the Lord;
“I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”
6 The words of the Lord are pure words,
like silver refined in a furnace on the ground,
purified seven times.

7 You, O Lord, will keep them;
you will guard us from this generation forever.
8 On every side the wicked prowl,
as vileness is exalted among the children of man.

1 «Al Músico principal: sobre Seminit: Salmo de David» Salva, oh Jehová, porque se acabaron los piadosos; porque han desaparecido los fieles de entre los hijos de los hombres. 2 Mentira habla cada uno con su prójimo; Hablan con labios lisonjeros y con doblez de corazón. 3 Jehová destruirá todos los labios lisonjeros, y la lengua que habla soberbias; 4 los que han dicho: Por nuestra lengua prevaleceremos; nuestros labios son nuestros; ¿quién es señor sobre nosotros?

5 Por la opresión de los pobres, por el gemido de los necesitados, ahora me levantaré, dice Jehová; los pondré a salvo del que contra ellos se engríe.

6 Las palabras de Jehová son palabras puras; como plata refinada en horno de tierra, purificada siete veces. 7 Tú, Jehová, las guardarás; las preservarás de esta generación para siempre. 8 Asediando andan los malos, cuando son exaltados los más viles de los hijos de los hombres.

I cry this same prayer today Lord. I cry for the innocent people in Syria that have so much chaos around them. I cry out Oh Lord, that you would awaken the people who are walking in sin and wickedness, that You would put items or people in their path that would help them repent and turn to You. God, You are so Great and Mighty. Your will be done. Yes, only Your will be done.

Psalm 139:1-4

1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

2Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

3Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

4For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

1 Oh SEÑOR, tú me has escudriñado y conocido.
2 Tú conoces mi sentarme y mi levantarme;
desde lejos comprendes mis pensamientos.
3 Tú escudriñas mi senda y mi descanso,
y conoces bien todos mis caminos.
4 Aun antes de que haya palabra en mi boca,
he aquí, oh SEÑOR, tú ya la sabes toda.

Is there anything God doesn’t know? Some may think so, but we cannot hide anything from our creator. Do we consider this before we act, say, or write? Father, as David prayed, so do I. Please keep me and search me and guide me into the light of Your glory!

Psalm 139:4-10

4For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

5Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

7Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

8If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

9If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

10Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

 

4 Aun antes de que haya palabra en mi boca, 
he aquí, oh SEÑOR, tú ya la sabes toda. 
5 Por detrás y por delante me has cercado, 
y tu mano pusiste sobre mí. 
6 Tal conocimiento es demasiado maravilloso para mí; 
es muy elevado, no lo puedo alcanzar. 
7 ¿Adónde me iré de tu Espíritu, 
o adónde huiré de tu presencia? 
8 Si subo a los cielos, he aquí, allí estás tú; 
si en el Seol preparo mi lecho, allí estás tú. 
9 Si tomo las alas del alba, 
y si habito en lo más remoto del mar, 
10 aun allí me guiará tu mano, 
y me asirá tu diestra.

James 3:3-10

3Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. 5Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: 8But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

3 Ahora bien, si ponemos el freno en la boca de los caballos para que nos obedezcan, dirigimos también todo su cuerpo. 4 Mirad también las naves; aunque son tan grandes e impulsadas por fuertes vientos, son, sin embargo, dirigidas mediante un timón muy pequeño por donde la voluntad del piloto quiere. 5 Así también la lengua es un miembro pequeño, y sin embargo, se jacta de grandes cosas. Mirad, ¡qué gran bosque se incendia con tan pequeño fuego! 6 Y la lengua es un fuego, un mundo de iniquidad. La lengua está puesta entre nuestros miembros, la cual contamina todo el cuerpo, es encendida por el infierno e inflama el curso de nuestra vida. 7 Porque todo género de fieras y de aves, de reptiles y de animales marinos, se puede domar y ha sido domado por el género humano, 8 pero ningún hombre puede domar la lengua; es un mal turbulento y lleno de veneno mortal. 9 Con ella bendecimos a nuestro Señor y Padre, y con ella maldecimos a los hombres, que han sido hechos a la imagen de Dios; 10 de la misma boca proceden bendición y maldición. Hermanos míos, esto no debe ser así.

Our tongues can do a lot of damage or it can lift those around us up. How are we using our speech? Is  it for good or bad? Are we considering what our words are doing to the person we are speaking too? Words are the ultimate weapon and can destroy lives. Guns and weapons do damage, but the tongue is the ultimate weapon. With the tongue, wars start and stop.

Psalm 39:1-3

I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked are before me. I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred. My heart was hot within me, while I was meditating the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue

Yo dije: Guardaré mis caminos, para no pecar con mi lengua; guardaré mi boca como con mordaza, mientras el impío esté en mi presencia. Enmudecí y callé; guardé silencio aun acerca de lo bueno, y se agravó mi dolor. Ardía mi corazón dentro de mí; mientras meditaba, se encendió el fuego; entonces dije con mi lengua

Our tongue and our words can do a lot of damage. There is a time we just need to shut up. I have had to learn this in many ways. The key is: are we listening to the Holy Spirit or are we just listening to our own brains? Even worse, are we helping satan with our words? There is a time to speak, and there is a time to let things go and just keep it shut. What is that “still, small voice” saying to you. What is the Holy Spirit saying to me. Lord, help us guard our words and help us be wise in knowing when to speak and when not to. In Jesus’ name I pray.

Psalm 66:16-20

Come and hear, all you that fear God, and I will declare what he has done for my soul. I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: But verily God has heard me; he has attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

Venid y oíd, todos los que a Dios teméis, y contaré lo que El ha hecho por mi alma. Con mi boca clamé a El, y ensalzado fue con mi lengua. Si observo iniquidad en mi corazón, el Señor no me escuchará. Pero ciertamente Dios me ha oído; El atendió a la voz de mi oración. Bendito sea Dios, que no ha desechado mi oración, ni apartado de mí su misericordia.

All thanks to our marvelous God. He, like David also hears my prayers. His mercy and grace is all around for us to just hold onto. God has done so very, very much for me and I just have to yell it from the housetop. Praise You God! Praise You!
