My soul faints for Your salvation, But I hope in Your word. My eyes fail from searching Your word, Saying, "When will You comfort me?" For I have become like a wine skin in smoke, Yet I do not forget Your statutes.
How many are the days of Your servant? When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me? The proud have dug pits for me, Which is not according to Your law.
All Your commandments are faithful; They persecute me wrongfully; Help me! They almost made an end of me on earth, But I did not forsake Your precepts. Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, So that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth.
The last paragraph with its avowal of faithfulness on the part of Ish HaElohim is a model for us in this day and age. We are facing increased resistance to “the faith which was once delivered to the saints”(Jude 3) We are assailed on every side by attacks on the faith; all aimed pulling its teeth, stripping its authority, in short, emasculating the Word. Let us join in a pact to cover each other with prayer that we would stand strong for the Word of God.

Morning Psalm 5, Noon Psalm 119:105-112, Evening Psalm 51.
Alternate Reading Plan based on 7 chapters/day from 7 sections of the Scriptures. My groupings are: Genesis-Joshua, Judges to Esther, Job to Song of Solomon, Psalms breaking 119 into convenient sets, Isaiah to Malachi, Matthew to Acts, Romans to Revelation.
Set your own up in convenient groupings as fits your study habits.
I suggest either setting aside a period of the day to read all, or break the readings up into morning, mid-day, and evening series. Both approaches have their advantages, and both will build an awareness of the Bible as a whole over time.
