A Psalm Of Solomon. Give the king Your judgments, O God, And Your righteousness to the king's Son. He will judge Your people with righteousness, And Your poor with justice. The mountains will bring peace to the people, And the little hills, by righteousness. He will bring justice to the poor of the people; He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor. They shall fear You As long as the sun and moon endure, Throughout all generations.
I'm sure I don't understand this Psalm that is attributed to Solomon but the final line states that “The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.” Oh, well it is a beautiful Psalm filled with praises for and adoration of the LORD, God, the Almighty.
We start here with a plea for Solomon to be a righteous and just king. It those characteristics of the LORD that are called upon to bless Solomon. Where would I go to find a better description of Him? He is righteousness, and justice, and peace, and retribution.

Morning Psalm 11, Noon Psalm 119:153-160, Evening Psalm 57.
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.
