1:1 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
1:2 But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
1:4 The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, [saying],
2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
2:5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou [art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give [thee] the heathen [for] thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy possession.
2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed [are] all they that put their trust in him.
3:1 <> LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many [are] they that rise up against me.
3:2 Many [there be] which say of my soul, [There is] no help for him in God. Selah.
3:3 But thou, O LORD, [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
3:4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set [themselves] against me round about.
3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies [upon] the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly.
3:8 Salvation [belongeth] unto the LORD: thy blessing [is] upon thy people. Selah.
4:1 <> Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me [when I was] in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
4:2 O ye sons of men, how long [will ye turn] my glory into shame? [how long] will ye love vanity, [and] seek after leasing? Selah.
4:3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
4:6 [There be] many that say, Who will shew us [any] good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
4:7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time [that] their corn and their wine increased.
4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
5:1 <> Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct [my prayer] unto thee, and will look up.
5:4 For thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5:5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
5:6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
5:7 But as for me, I will come [into] thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: [and] in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
5:9 For [there is] no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part [is] very wickedness; their throat [is] an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
5:10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as [with] a shield.
6:1 <> O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
6:2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I [am] weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
6:3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
6:4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
6:5 For in death [there is] no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6:6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
6:7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
6:8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
6:9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
6:10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return [and] be ashamed suddenly.
7:1 <> O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
7:2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending [it] in pieces, while [there is] none to deliver.
7:3 O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
7:4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
7:5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take [it]; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me [to] the judgment [that] thou hast commanded.
7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity [that is] in me.
7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
7:10 My defence [is] of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry [with the wicked] every day.
7:12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch [which] he made.
7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
8:1 <> O LORD our Lord, how excellent [is] thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all [things] under his feet:
8:7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8:8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, [and whatsoever] passeth through the paths of the seas.
8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent [is] thy name in all the earth!
9:1 <> I will praise [thee], O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
9:5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.
9:8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9:9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
9:12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble [which I suffer] of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
9:14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit [that] they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
9:16 The LORD is known [by] the judgment [which] he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall [not] perish for ever.
9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: [that] the nations may know themselves [to be but] men. Selah.
10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? [why] hidest thou [thyself] in times of trouble?
10:2 The wicked in [his] pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, [whom] the LORD abhorreth.
10:4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek [after God]: God [is] not in all his thoughts.
10:5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments [are] far above out of his sight: [as for] all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for [I shall] never [be] in adversity.
10:7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue [is] mischief and vanity.
10:8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
10:10 He croucheth, [and] humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
10:11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see [it].
10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require [it].
10:14 Thou hast seen [it]; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite [it] with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
10:15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil [man]: seek out his wickedness [till] thou find none.
10:16 The LORD [is] King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
10:18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
11:1 <> In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee [as] a bird to your mountain?
11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend [their] bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
11:4 The LORD [is] in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne [is] in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: [this shall be] the portion of their cup.
11:7 For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
12:1 <> Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
12:2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: [with] flattering lips [and] with a double heart do they speak.
12:3 The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, [and] the tongue that speaketh proud things:
12:4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips [are] our own: who [is] lord over us?
12:5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set [him] in safety [from him that] puffeth at him.
12:6 The words of the LORD [are] pure words: [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
13:1 <> How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, [having] sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
13:3 Consider [and] hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the [sleep of] death;
13:4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; [and] those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
13:5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
13:6 I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
14:1 <> The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, [there is] none that doeth good.
14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God.
14:3 They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people [as] they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
14:5 There were they in great fear: for God [is] in the generation of the righteous.
14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD [is] his refuge.
14:7 Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.
15:1 <
> LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
15:3 [He that] backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. [He that] sweareth to [his own] hurt, and changeth not.
15:5 [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall never be moved.
16:1 <> Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
16:2 [O my soul], thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou [art] my Lord: my goodness [extendeth] not to thee;
16:3 [But] to the saints that [are] in the earth, and [to] the excellent, in whom [is] all my delight.
16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after] another [god]: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
16:5 The LORD [is] the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant [places]; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
16:7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.
17:1 <
> Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of feigned lips.
17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited [me] in the night; thou hast tried me, [and] shalt find nothing; I am purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgress.
17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer.
17:5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, [that] my footsteps slip not.
17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, [and hear] my speech.
17:7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust [in thee] from those that rise up [against them].
17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass me about.
17:10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
17:12 Like as a lion [that] is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, [which is] thy sword:
17:14 From men [which are] thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, [which have] their portion in [this] life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid [treasure]: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their [substance] to their babes.
17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
18:1 <> I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
18:2 The LORD [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower.
18:3 I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, [even] into his ears.
18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness [was] under his feet.
18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him [were] dark waters [and] thick clouds of the skies.
18:12 At the brightness [that was] before him his thick clouds passed, hail [stones] and coals of fire.
18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail [stones] and coals of fire.
18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
18:15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
18:22 For all his judgments [were] before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
18:27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
18:30 [As for] God, his way [is] perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he [is] a buckler to all those that trust in him.
18:31 For who [is] God save the LORD? or who [is] a rock save our God?
18:32 [It is] God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet], and setteth me upon my high places.
18:34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
18:41 They cried, but [there was] none to save [them: even] unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
18:43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; [and] thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people [whom] I have not known shall serve me.
18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed [be] my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
18:47 [It is] God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
18:48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
19:1 <> The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
19:3 [There is] no speech nor language, [where] their voice is not heard.
19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
19:5 Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
19:6 His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
19:7 The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple.
19:8 The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes.
19:9 The fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD [are] true [and] righteous altogether.
19:10 More to be desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: [and] in keeping of them [there is] great reward.
19:12 Who can understand [his] errors? cleanse thou me from secret [faults].
19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
20:1 <> The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
20:2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
20:3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
20:4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up [our] banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
20:6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
20:7 Some [trust] in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
20:9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
21:1 <> The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
21:3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
21:4 He asked life of thee, [and] thou gavest [it] him, [even] length of days for ever and ever.
21:5 His glory [is] great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
21:6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
21:7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
21:8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
21:10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, [which] they are not able [to perform].
21:12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, [when] thou shalt make ready [thine arrows] upon thy strings against the face of them.
21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: [so] will we sing and praise thy power.
22:1 <> My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my roaring?
22:2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
22:3 But thou [art] holy, [O thou] that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
22:6 But I [am] a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying],
22:8 He trusted on the LORD [that] he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
22:9 But thou [art] he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope [when I was] upon my mother's breasts.
22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou [art] my God from my mother's belly.
22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble [is] near; for [there is] none to help.
22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong [bulls] of Bashan have beset me round.
22:13 They gaped upon me [with] their mouths, [as] a ravening and a roaring lion.
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look [and] stare upon me.
22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
22:25 My praise [shall be] of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
22:28 For the kingdom [is] the LORD'S: and he [is] the governor among the nations.
22:29 All [they that be] fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
22:30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
22:31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done [this].
23:1 <
> The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.
23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
24:1 <
> The earth [is] the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
24:2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
24:6 This [is] the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
24:7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:8 Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
24:9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the King of glory. Selah.
25:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
25:2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
25:3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
25:4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
25:6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they [have been] ever of old.
25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
25:8 Good and upright [is] the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
25:9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
25:10 All the paths of the LORD [are] mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
25:11 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it [is] great.
25:12 What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way [that] he shall choose.
25:13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
25:14 The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
25:15 Mine eyes [are] ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
25:16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I [am] desolate and afflicted.
25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: [O] bring thou me out of my distresses.
25:18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
25:19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
25:20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
26:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; [therefore] I shall not slide.
26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
26:3 For thy lovingkindness [is] before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
26:4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
26:5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
26:6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
26:8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
26:10 In whose hands [is] mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
26:12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
27:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
27:2 When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident.
27:4 One [thing] have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
27:7 Hear, O LORD, [when] I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
27:8 [When thou saidst], Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
27:9 Hide not thy face [far] from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
27:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
27:12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
27:13 [I had fainted], unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
28:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, [if] thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief [is] in their hearts.
28:4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
28:5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
28:6 Blessed [be] the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
28:7 The LORD [is] my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
28:8 The LORD [is] their strength, and he [is] the saving strength of his anointed.
28:9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
29:1 <
> Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
29:3 The voice of the LORD [is] upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD [is] upon many waters.
29:4 The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD [is] full of majesty.
29:5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
29:6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
29:7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
29:8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
29:9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of [his] glory.
29:10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.
29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.
30:1 <
> I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
30:3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
30:5 For his anger [endureth but] a moment; in his favour [is] life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy [cometh] in the morning.
30:6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
30:7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, [and] I was troubled.
30:8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
30:9 What profit [is there] in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
30:10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
30:12 To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
31:1 <> In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
31:2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
31:3 For thou [art] my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
31:4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou [art] my strength.
31:5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
31:6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.
31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
31:8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
31:9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, [yea], my soul and my belly.
31:10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
31:11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.
31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
31:13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear [was] on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
31:14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou [art] my God.
31:15 My times [are] in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
31:16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.
31:17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, [and] let them be silent in the grave.
31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
31:19 [Oh] how great [is] thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; [which] thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
31:21 Blessed [be] the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
31:22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.
31:23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: [for] the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
32:1 <<[A Psalm] of David, Maschil.>> Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered.
32:2 Blessed [is] the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.
32:3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
32:4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
32:6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
32:7 Thou [art] my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
32:9 Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
32:10 Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
32:11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.
33:1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely for the upright.
33:2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings.
33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
33:4 For the word of the LORD [is] right; and all his works [are done] in truth.
33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
33:6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
33:9 For he spake, and it was [done]; he commanded, and it stood fast.
33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
33:12 Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD; [and] the people [whom] he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
33:13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
33:14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
33:15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
33:17 An horse [is] a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver [any] by his great strength.
33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD [is] upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he [is] our help and our shield.
33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
34:1 <<[A Psalm] of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.>> I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise [shall] continually [be] in my mouth.
34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear [thereof], and be glad.
34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
34:4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
34:5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles.
34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
34:8 O taste and see that the LORD [is] good: blessed [is] the man [that] trusteth in him.
34:9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for [there is] no want to them that fear him.
34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good [thing].
34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
34:12 What man [is he that] desireth life, [and] loveth [many] days, that he may see good?
34:13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
34:15 The eyes of the LORD [are] upon the righteous, and his ears [are open] unto their cry.
34:16 The face of the LORD [is] against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
34:17 [The righteous] cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
34:18 The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
34:19 Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
35:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> Plead [my cause], O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
35:3 Draw out also the spear, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I [am] thy salvation.
35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase [them].
35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net [in] a pit, [which] without cause they have digged for my soul.
35:8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
35:9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
35:10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who [is] like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
35:11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge [things] that I knew not.
35:12 They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my soul.
35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
35:14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother.
35:15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: [yea], the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew [it] not; they did tear [me], and ceased not:
35:16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
35:17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
35:18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
35:20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against [them that are] quiet in the land.
35:21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen [it].
35:22 [This] thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
35:23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, [even] unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
35:24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify [themselves] against me.
35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
35:28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness [and] of thy praise all the day long.
36:1 <> The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, [that there is] no fear of God before his eyes.
36:2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
36:3 The words of his mouth [are] iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, [and] to do good.
36:4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way [that is] not good; he abhorreth not evil.
36:5 Thy mercy, O LORD, [is] in the heavens; [and] thy faithfulness [reacheth] unto the clouds.
36:6 Thy righteousness [is] like the great mountains; thy judgments [are] a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
36:7 How excellent [is] thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
36:9 For with thee [is] the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
36:10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
36:11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
36:12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
37:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass.
37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be].
37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
37:12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, [and] to slay such as be of upright conversation.
37:15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
37:16 A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the riches of many wicked.
37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
37:18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD [shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
37:22 For [such as be] blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and [they that be] cursed of him shall be cut off.
37:23 The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth [him with] his hand.
37:25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
37:26 [He is] ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed [is] blessed.
37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
37:28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
37:31 The law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
37:33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it].
37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37:37 Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.
37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
37:39 But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he is] their strength in the time of trouble.
37:40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
38:1 <
> O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
38:2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
38:3 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.
38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
38:5 My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness.
38:6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
38:7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh.
38:8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
38:9 Lord, all my desire [is] before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
38:10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
38:13 But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] openeth not his mouth.
38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth [are] no reproofs.
38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
38:16 For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify [themselves] against me.
38:17 For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually before me.
38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
38:19 But mine enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow [the thing that] good [is].
38:21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
38:22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
39:1 <> 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 is before me.
39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, [even] from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
39:3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: [then] spake I with my tongue,
39:4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am].
39:5 Behold, thou hast made my days [as] an handbreadth; and mine age [is] as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state [is] altogether vanity. Selah.
39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.
39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope [is] in thee.
39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst [it].
39:10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
39:11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man [is] vanity. Selah.
39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I [am] a stranger with thee, [and] a sojourner, as all my fathers [were].
39:13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
40:1 <> I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings.
40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
40:4 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
40:5 Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.
40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is] written of me,
40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is] within my heart.
40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
40:17 But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the Lord thinketh upon me: thou [art] my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
41:1 <> Blessed [is] he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
41:2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; [and] he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
41:4 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
41:6 And if he come to see [me], he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; [when] he goeth abroad, he telleth [it].
41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.
41:8 An evil disease, [say they], cleaveth fast unto him: and [now] that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.
41:10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
41:11 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.
41:13 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
42:1 <> As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where [is] thy God?
42:4 When I remember these [things], I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and [why] art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him [for] the help of his countenance.
42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
42:8 [Yet] the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song [shall be] with me, [and] my prayer unto the God of my life.
42:9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
42:10 [As] with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where [is] thy God?
42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.
43:1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
43:2 For thou [art] the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
43:3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
43:4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
43:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.
44:1 <> We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, [what] work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
44:2 [How] thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; [how] thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
44:3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
44:7 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
44:9 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.
44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep [appointed] for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.
44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase [thy wealth] by their price.
44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
44:15 My confusion [is] continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
44:17 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;
44:19 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast [us] not off for ever.
44:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, [and] forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
45:1 <> My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue [is] the pen of a ready writer.
45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
45:3 Gird thy sword upon [thy] thigh, O [most] mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
45:4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness [and] righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
45:5 Thine arrows [are] sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; [whereby] the people fall under thee.
45:6 Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom [is] a right sceptre.
45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
45:8 All thy garments [smell] of myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
45:9 Kings' daughters [were] among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
45:10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
45:11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he [is] thy Lord; and worship thou him.
45:12 And the daughter of Tyre [shall be there] with a gift; [even] the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
45:13 The king's daughter [is] all glorious within: her clothing [is] of wrought gold.
45:14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
45:15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.
45:16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
45:17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
46:1 <> God [is] our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
46:2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
46:3 [Though] the waters thereof roar [and] be troubled, [though] the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
46:4 [There is] a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy [place] of the tabernacles of the most High.
46:5 God [is] in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, [and that] right early.
46:6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
46:7 The LORD of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our refuge. Selah.
46:8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
46:10 Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
46:11 The LORD of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our refuge. Selah.
47:1 <> O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
47:2 For the LORD most high [is] terrible; [he is] a great King over all the earth.
47:3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
47:7 For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
47:9 The princes of the people are gathered together, [even] the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth [belong] unto God: he is greatly exalted.
48:1 <
> Great [is] the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, [in] the mountain of his holiness.
48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, [is] mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
48:3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
48:4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
48:5 They saw [it, and] so they marvelled; they were troubled, [and] hasted away.
48:6 Fear took hold upon them there, [and] pain, as of a woman in travail.
48:7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
48:8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.
48:9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
48:10 According to thy name, O God, so [is] thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
48:11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
48:12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
48:13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell [it] to the generation following.
48:14 For this God [is] our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide [even] unto death.
49:1 <> Hear this, all [ye] people; give ear, all [ye] inhabitants of the world:
49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart [shall be] of understanding.
49:4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
49:7 None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
49:8 (For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
49:9 That he should still live for ever, [and] not see corruption.
49:10 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
49:11 Their inward thought [is, that] their houses [shall continue] for ever, [and] their dwelling places to all generations; they call [their] lands after their own names.
49:12 Nevertheless man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts [that] perish.
49:13 This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and [men] will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
49:20 Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish.
50:1 <
> The mighty God, [even] the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
50:6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God [is] judge himself. Selah.
50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I [am] God, [even] thy God.
50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, [to have been] continually before me.
50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he goats out of thy folds.
50:10 For every beast of the forest [is] mine, [and] the cattle upon a thousand hills.
50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field [are] mine.
50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world [is] mine, and the fulness thereof.
50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
50:20 Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
50:21 These [things] hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether [such an one] as thyself: [but] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes.
50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear [you] in pieces, and [there be] none to deliver.
50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth [his] conversation [aright] will I shew the salvation of God.
51:1 <> Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin [is] ever before me.
51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest.
51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden [part] thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
51:8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which] thou hast broken may rejoice.
51:9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.
51:13 [Then] will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: [and] my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give [it]: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
51:17 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
51:18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
51:19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
52:1 <> Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God [endureth] continually.
52:2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good; [and] lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O [thou] deceitful tongue.
52:5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of [thy] dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
52:6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
52:7 Lo, [this is] the man [that] made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened himself in his wickedness.
52:8 But I [am] like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
52:9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done [it]: and I will wait on thy name; for [it is] good before thy saints.
53:1 <> The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: [there is] none that doeth good.
53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God.
53:3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
53:4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people [as] they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
53:5 There were they in great fear, [where] no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth [against] thee: thou hast put [them] to shame, because God hath despised them.
53:6 Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.
54:1 <> Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
54:3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
54:4 Behold, God [is] mine helper: the Lord [is] with them that uphold my soul.
54:5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.
54:6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for [it is] good.
54:7 For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen [his desire] upon mine enemies.
55:1 <> Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! [for then] would I fly away, and be at rest.
55:7 Lo, [then] would I wander far off, [and] remain in the wilderness. Selah.
55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm [and] tempest.
55:9 Destroy, O Lord, [and] divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
55:10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it.
55:11 Wickedness [is] in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
55:12 For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I could have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that] did magnify [himself] against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
55:13 But [it was] thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
55:14 We took sweet counsel together, [and] walked unto the house of God in company.
55:15 Let death seize upon them, [and] let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness [is] in their dwellings, [and] among them.
55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle [that was] against me: for there were many with me.
55:19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
55:21 [The words] of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war [was] in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet [were] they drawn swords.
55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
55:23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.
56:1 <> Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they be] many that fight against me, O thou most High.
56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are] against me for evil.
56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in [thine] anger cast down the people, O God.
56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book?
56:9 When I cry [unto thee], then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God [is] for me.
56:10 In God will I praise [his] word: in the LORD will I praise [his] word.
56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
56:12 Thy vows [are] upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [wilt] not [thou deliver] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
57:1 <> Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these] calamities be overpast.
57:2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth [all things] for me.
57:3 He shall send from heaven, and save me [from] the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
57:4 My soul [is] among lions: [and] I lie [even among] them that are set on fire, [even] the sons of men, whose teeth [are] spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
57:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.
57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen [themselves]. Selah.
57:7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself] will awake early.
57:9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.
57:10 For thy mercy [is] great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
57:11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: [let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.
58:1 <> Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
58:4 Their poison [is] like the poison of a serpent: [they are] like the deaf adder [that] stoppeth her ear;
58:5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
58:6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
58:7 Let them melt away as waters [which] run continually: [when] he bendeth [his bow to shoot] his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
58:8 As a snail [which] melteth, let [every one of them] pass away: [like] the untimely birth of a woman, [that] they may not see the sun.
58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in [his] wrath.
58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily [there is] a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
59:1 <> Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.
59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
59:3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not [for] my transgression, nor [for] my sin, O LORD.
59:4 They run and prepare themselves without [my] fault: awake to help me, and behold.
59:5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
59:6 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords [are] in their lips: for who, [say they], doth hear?
59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.
59:9 [Because of] his strength will I wait upon thee: for God [is] my defence.
59:10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see [my desire] upon mine enemies.
59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
59:12 [For] the sin of their mouth [and] the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying [which] they speak.
59:13 Consume [them] in wrath, consume [them], that they [may] not [be]: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
59:14 And at evening let them return; [and] let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
59:15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
59:16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
59:17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God [is] my defence, [and] the God of my mercy.
60:1 <> O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
60:2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
60:3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
60:4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
60:5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save [with] thy right hand, and hear me.
60:6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
60:7 Gilead [is] mine, and Manasseh [is] mine; Ephraim also [is] the strength of mine head; Judah [is] my lawgiver;
60:8 Moab [is] my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
60:9 Who will bring me [into] the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
60:10 [Wilt] not thou, O God, [which] hadst cast us off? and [thou], O God, [which] didst not go out with our armies?
60:11 Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.
60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that] shall tread down our enemies.
61:1 <> Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock [that] is higher than I.
61:3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, [and] a strong tower from the enemy.
61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given [me] the heritage of those that fear thy name.
61:6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life: [and] his years as many generations.
61:7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, [which] may preserve him.
61:8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
62:1 <> Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him [cometh] my salvation.
62:2 He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [he is] my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
62:3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall [shall ye be, and as] a tottering fence.
62:4 They only consult to cast [him] down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from him.
62:6 He only [is] my rock and my salvation: [he is] my defence; I shall not be moved.
62:7 In God [is] my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God.
62:8 Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, pour out your heart before him: God [is] a refuge for us. Selah.
62:9 Surely men of low degree [are] vanity, [and] men of high degree [are] a lie: to be laid in the balance, they [are] altogether [lighter] than vanity.
62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart [upon them].
62:11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power [belongeth] unto God.
62:12 Also unto thee, O Lord, [belongeth] mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
63:1 <
> O God, thou [art] my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so [as] I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
63:3 Because thy lovingkindness [is] better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as [with] marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise [thee] with joyful lips:
63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed, [and] meditate on thee in the [night] watches.
63:7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
63:8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
63:9 But those [that] seek my soul, to destroy [it], shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
63:10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
64:1 <> Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
64:2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
64:3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, [and] bend [their bows to shoot] their arrows, [even] bitter words:
64:4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
64:5 They encourage themselves [in] an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
64:6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward [thought] of every one [of them], and the heart, [is] deep.
64:7 But God shall shoot at them [with] an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
64:8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
64:9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
64:10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
65:1 <> Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
65:2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
65:3 Iniquities prevail against me: [as for] our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
65:4 Blessed [is the man whom] thou choosest, and causest to approach [unto thee, that] he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, [even] of thy holy temple.
65:5 [By] terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; [who art] the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off [upon] the sea:
65:6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; [being] girded with power:
65:7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
65:8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
65:9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, [which] is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
65:10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
65:11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
65:12 They drop [upon] the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
65:13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
66:1 <> Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
66:2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
66:3 Say unto God, How terrible [art thou in] thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing [to] thy name. Selah.
66:5 Come and see the works of God: [he is] terrible [in his] doing toward the children of men.
66:6 He turned the sea into dry [land]: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
66:7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
66:8 O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
66:9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
66:11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
66:12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy [place].
66:13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
66:14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
66:15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
66:16 Come [and] hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
66:17 I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me]:
66:19 [But] verily God hath heard [me]; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
66:20 Blessed [be] God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
67:1 <> God be merciful unto us, and bless us; [and] cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
67:2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
67:3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
67:4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
67:5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
67:6 [Then] shall the earth yield her increase; [and] God, [even] our own God, shall bless us.
67:7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
68:1 <> Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
68:2 As smoke is driven away, [so] drive [them] away: as wax melteth before the fire, [so] let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
68:3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
68:4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, [is] God in his holy habitation.
68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry [land].
68:7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
68:8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: [even] Sinai itself [was moved] at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
68:9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
68:10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
68:11 The Lord gave the word: great [was] the company of those that published [it].
68:12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
68:13 Though ye have lien among the pots, [yet shall ye be as] the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was [white] as snow in Salmon.
68:15 The hill of God [is as] the hill of Bashan; an high hill [as] the hill of Bashan.
68:16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? [this is] the hill [which] God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell [in it] for ever.
68:17 The chariots of God [are] twenty thousand, [even] thousands of angels: the Lord [is] among them, [as in] Sinai, in the holy [place].
68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, [for] the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell [among them].
68:19 Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the God of our salvation. Selah.
68:20 [He that is] our God [is] the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord [belong] the issues from death.
68:21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, [and] the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
68:22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring [my people] again from the depths of the sea:
68:23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of [thine] enemies, [and] the tongue of thy dogs in the same.
68:24 They have seen thy goings, O God; [even] the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
68:25 The singers went before, the players on instruments [followed] after; among [them were] the damsels playing with timbrels.
68:26 Bless ye God in the congregations, [even] the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
68:27 There [is] little Benjamin [with] their ruler, the princes of Judah [and] their council, the princes of Zebulun, [and] the princes of Naphtali.
68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.
68:29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.
68:30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, [till every one] submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people [that] delight in war.
68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:
68:33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, [which were] of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, [and that] a mighty voice.
68:34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency [is] over Israel, and his strength [is] in the clouds.
68:35 O God, [thou art] terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel [is] he that giveth strength and power unto [his] people. Blessed [be] God.
69:1 <> Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto [my] soul.
69:2 I sink in deep mire, where [there is] no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, [being] mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored [that] which I took not away.
69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
69:6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
69:7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.
69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
69:10 When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I [was] the song of the drunkards.
69:13 But as for me, my prayer [is] unto thee, O LORD, [in] an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
69:15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness [is] good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
69:18 Draw nigh unto my soul, [and] redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries [are] all before thee.
69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked [for some] to take pity, but [there was] none; and for comforters, but I found none.
69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and [that which should have been] for [their] welfare, [let it become] a trap.
69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
69:24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; [and] let none dwell in their tents.
69:26 For they persecute [him] whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
69:27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
69:29 But I [am] poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
69:31 [This] also shall please the LORD better than an ox [or] bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
69:32 The humble shall see [this, and] be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
69:34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.
69:35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
70:1 <> [Make haste], O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.
70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
70:3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
70:5 But I [am] poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou [art] my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
71:1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
71:2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
71:3 Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou [art] my rock and my fortress.
71:4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
71:5 For thou [art] my hope, O Lord GOD: [thou art] my trust from my youth.
71:6 By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise [shall be] continually of thee.
71:7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou [art] my strong refuge.
71:8 Let my mouth be filled [with] thy praise [and with] thy honour all the day.
71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
71:10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
71:11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for [there is] none to deliver [him].
71:12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
71:13 Let them be confounded [and] consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered [with] reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
71:15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness [and] thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers [thereof].
71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, [even] of thine only.
71:17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
71:18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto [this] generation, [and] thy power to every one [that] is to come.
71:19 Thy righteousness also, O God, [is] very high, who hast done great things: O God, who [is] like unto thee!
71:20 [Thou], which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
71:21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
71:22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, [even] thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
71:24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
72:1 <<[A Psalm] for Solomon.>> Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
72:2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
72:4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
72:5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
72:6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers [that] water the earth.
72:7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
72:9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
72:12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and [him] that hath no helper.
72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
72:15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; [and] daily shall he be praised.
72:16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and [they] of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
72:17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
72:18 Blessed [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
72:19 And blessed [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen.
72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
73:1 <
> Truly God [is] good to Israel, [even] to such as are of a clean heart.
73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, [when] I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
73:4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength [is] firm.
73:5 They [are] not in trouble [as other] men; neither are they plagued like [other] men.
73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them [as] a garment.
73:7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
73:8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly [concerning] oppression: they speak loftily.
73:9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
73:10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full [cup] are wrung out to them.
73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
73:12 Behold, these [are] the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase [in] riches.
73:13 Verily I have cleansed my heart [in] vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
73:14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
73:15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend [against] the generation of thy children.
73:16 When I thought to know this, it [was] too painful for me;
73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; [then] understood I their end.
73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
73:19 How are they [brought] into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
73:20 As a dream when [one] awaketh; [so], O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
73:21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
73:22 So foolish [was] I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast before thee.
73:23 Nevertheless I [am] continually with thee: thou hast holden [me] by my right hand.
73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me [to] glory.
73:25 Whom have I in heaven [but thee]? and [there is] none upon earth [that] I desire beside thee.
73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: [but] God [is] the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
73:27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
73:28 But [it is] good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
74:1 <> O God, why hast thou cast [us] off for ever? [why] doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
74:2 Remember thy congregation, [which] thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, [which] thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
74:3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; [even] all [that] the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
74:4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns [for] signs.
74:5 [A man] was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
74:6 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
74:7 They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled [by casting down] the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.
74:8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
74:9 We see not our signs: [there is] no more any prophet: neither [is there] among us any that knoweth how long.
74:10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
74:11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck [it] out of thy bosom.
74:12 For God [is] my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
74:13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and] gavest him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
74:15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.
74:16 The day [is] thine, the night also [is] thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
74:18 Remember this, [that] the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and [that] the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.
74:19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude [of the wicked]: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
74:21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.
74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
74:23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.
75:1 <> Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, [unto thee] do we give thanks: for [that] thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
75:2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
75:3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
75:4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
75:5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak [not with] a stiff neck.
75:6 For promotion [cometh] neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
75:7 But God [is] the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
75:8 For in the hand of the LORD [there is] a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring [them] out, [and] drink [them].
75:9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
75:10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; [but] the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
76:1 <> In Judah [is] God known: his name [is] great in Israel.
76:2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
76:3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
76:4 Thou [art] more glorious [and] excellent than the mountains of prey.
76:5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
76:6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
76:7 Thou, [even] thou, [art] to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
76:8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
76:9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
76:11 Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
76:12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: [he is] terrible to the kings of the earth.
77:1 <> I cried unto God with my voice, [even] unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
77:2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
77:3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
77:4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
77:5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
77:6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
77:7 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
77:8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth [his] promise fail for evermore?
77:9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
77:10 And I said, This [is] my infirmity: [but I will remember] the years of the right hand of the most High.
77:11 I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
77:12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
77:13 Thy way, O God, [is] in the sanctuary: who [is so] great a God as [our] God?
77:14 Thou [art] the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
77:15 Thou hast with [thine] arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
77:16 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
77:17 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
77:18 The voice of thy thunder [was] in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
77:19 Thy way [is] in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
77:20 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
78:1 <> Give ear, O my people, [to] my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
78:3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
78:4 We will not hide [them] from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
78:5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:
78:6 That the generation to come might know [them, even] the children [which] should be born; [who] should arise and declare [them] to their children:
78:7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
78:8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation [that] set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
78:9 The children of Ephraim, [being] armed, [and] carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
78:10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
78:11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
78:12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, [in] the field of Zoan.
78:13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
78:14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
78:15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave [them] drink as [out of] the great depths.
78:16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
78:17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
78:18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
78:19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
78:20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
78:21 Therefore the LORD heard [this], and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
78:22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
78:23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
78:24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
78:25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
78:26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.
78:27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
78:28 And he let [it] fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
78:29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
78:30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat [was] yet in their mouths,
78:31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel.
78:32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
78:33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
78:34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.
78:35 And they remembered that God [was] their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
78:36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
78:37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
78:38 But he, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
78:39 For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
78:40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, [and] grieve him in the desert!
78:41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
78:42 They remembered not his hand, [nor] the day when he delivered them from the enemy.
78:43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:
78:44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
78:45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
78:46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.
78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
78:48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels [among them].
78:50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
78:51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of [their] strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
78:52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
78:53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
78:54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased.
78:55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.
78:56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:
78:57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
78:58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
78:59 When God heard [this], he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
78:60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent [which] he placed among men;
78:61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.
78:62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
78:63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
78:64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
78:65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
78:66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
78:67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
78:68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
78:69 And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established for ever.
78:70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
78:71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
78:72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
79:1 <
> O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
79:2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be] meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth.
79:3 Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and [there was] none to bury [them].
79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
79:5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
79:7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.
79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.
79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.
79:10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] the revenging of the blood of thy servants [which is] shed.
79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;
79:12 And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
80:1 <> Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest [between] the cherubims, shine forth.
80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come [and] save us.
80:3 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
80:4 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
80:5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
80:6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
80:7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
80:8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
80:9 Thou preparedst [room] before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
80:10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof [were like] the goodly cedars.
80:11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
80:12 Why hast thou [then] broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
80:13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
80:14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
80:15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch [that] thou madest strong for thyself.
80:16 [It is] burned with fire, [it is] cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man [whom] thou madest strong for thyself.
80:18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
80:19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
81:1 <> Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
81:2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
81:4 For this [was] a statute for Israel, [and] a law of the God of Jacob.
81:5 This he ordained in Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: [where] I heard a language [that] I understood not.
81:6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.
81:7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
81:8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
81:9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
81:10 I [am] the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: [and] they walked in their own counsels.
81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, [and] Israel had walked in my ways!
81:14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
81:15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
81:16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
82:1 <
> God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
82:2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
82:4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid [them] out of the hand of the wicked.
82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
82:6 I have said, Ye [are] gods; and all of you [are] children of the most High.
82:7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
83:1 <
> Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from [being] a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
83:6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
83:7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
83:8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
83:9 Do unto them as [unto] the Midianites; as [to] Sisera, as [to] Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
83:10 [Which] perished at Endor: they became [as] dung for the earth.
83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
83:12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
83:14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
83:15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
83:18 That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is] JEHOVAH, [art] the most high over all the earth.
84:1 <> How amiable [are] thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, [even] thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
84:4 Blessed [are] they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.
84:5 Blessed [is] the man whose strength [is] in thee; in whose heart [are] the ways [of them].
84:6 [Who] passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
84:7 They go from strength to strength, [every one of them] in Zion appeareth before God.
84:8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
84:10 For a day in thy courts [is] better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
84:11 For the LORD God [is] a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good [thing] will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
84:12 O LORD of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in thee.
85:1 <> LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned [thyself] from the fierceness of thine anger.
85:4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
85:7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to folly.
85:9 Surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed [each other].
85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
85:12 Yea, the LORD shall give [that which is] good; and our land shall yield her increase.
85:13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set [us] in the way of his steps.
86:1 <
> Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I [am] poor and needy.
86:2 Preserve my soul; for I [am] holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
86:3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
86:4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
86:5 For thou, Lord, [art] good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
86:6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
86:8 Among the gods [there is] none like unto thee, O Lord; neither [are there any works] like unto thy works.
86:9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
86:10 For thou [art] great, and doest wondrous things: thou [art] God alone.
86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
86:12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
86:13 For great [is] thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
86:14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent [men] have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.
86:15 But thou, O Lord, [art] a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
86:16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
86:17 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see [it], and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.
87:1 <
> His foundation [is] in the holy mountains.
87:2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
87:3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.
87:4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this [man] was born there.
87:5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.
87:6 The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, [that] this [man] was born there. Selah.
87:7 As well the singers as the players on instruments [shall be there]: all my springs [are] in thee.
88:1 <
> O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day [and] night before thee:
88:2 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
88:3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man [that hath] no strength:
88:5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy hand.
88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted [me] with all thy waves. Selah.
88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: [I am] shut up, and I cannot come forth.
88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.
88:10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise [and] praise thee? Selah.
88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? [or] thy faithfulness in destruction?
88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
88:13 But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
88:14 LORD, why castest thou off my soul? [why] hidest thou thy face from me?
88:15 I [am] afflicted and ready to die from [my] youth up: [while] I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
88:16 Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
88:17 They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.
88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, [and] mine acquaintance into darkness.
89:1 <> I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
89:2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
89:5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? [who] among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all [them that are] about him.
89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who [is] a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
89:10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.
89:11 The heavens [are] thine, the earth also [is] thine: [as for] the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
89:12 The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
89:13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, [and] high is thy right hand.
89:14 Justice and judgment [are] the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
89:15 Blessed [is] the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
89:16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
89:17 For thou [art] the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
89:18 For the LORD [is] our defence; and the Holy One of Israel [is] our king.
89:19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon [one that is] mighty; I have exalted [one] chosen out of the people.
89:20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:
89:21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.
89:22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
89:23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.
89:24 But my faithfulness and my mercy [shall be] with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
89:25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
89:26 He shall cry unto me, Thou [art] my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
89:27 Also I will make him [my] firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
89:29 His seed also will I make [to endure] for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
89:30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
89:31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
89:32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
89:33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
89:35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and [as] a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
89:38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
89:39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
89:41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours.
89:42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.
89:44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.
89:45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.
89:46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?
89:47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?
89:48 What man [is he that] liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
89:49 Lord, where [are] thy former lovingkindnesses, [which] thou swarest unto David in thy truth?
89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; [how] I do bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty people;
89:51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
89:52 Blessed [be] the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
90:1 <
> Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.
90:3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.
90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are [as] a sleep: in the morning [they are] like grass [which] groweth up.
90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
90:7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
90:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret [sins] in the light of thy countenance.
90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale [that is told].
90:10 The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
90:11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, [so is] thy wrath.
90:12 So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
90:14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
90:15 Make us glad according to the days [wherein] thou hast afflicted us, [and] the years [wherein] we have seen evil.
90:16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
91:2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence.
91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler.
91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for the arrow [that] flieth by day;
91:6 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday.
91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee.
91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge, [even] the most High, thy habitation;
91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
91:12 They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
92:1 <
> [It is a] good [thing] to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
92:2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
92:3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
92:4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! [and] thy thoughts are very deep.
92:6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
92:7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; [it is] that they shall be destroyed for ever:
92:8 But thou, LORD, [art most] high for evermore.
92:9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
92:11 Mine eye also shall see [my desire] on mine enemies, [and] mine ears shall hear [my desire] of the wicked that rise up against me.
92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
92:14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
92:15 To shew that the LORD [is] upright: [he is] my rock, and [there is] no unrighteousness in him.
93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, [wherewith] he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
93:2 Thy throne [is] established of old: thou [art] from everlasting.
93:3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
93:4 The LORD on high [is] mightier than the noise of many waters, [yea, than] the mighty waves of the sea.
93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
94:4 [How long] shall they utter [and] speak hard things? [and] all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
94:5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
94:7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard [it].
94:8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and [ye] fools, when will ye be wise?
94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, [shall not he know]?
94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they [are] vanity.
94:12 Blessed [is] the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
94:14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
94:15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? [or] who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
94:17 Unless the LORD [had been] my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
94:22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God [is] the rock of my refuge.
94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; [yea], the LORD our God shall cut them off.
95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
95:3 For the LORD [is] a great God, and a great King above all gods.
95:4 In his hand [are] the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills [is] his also.
95:5 The sea [is] his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry [land].
95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
95:7 For he [is] our God; and we [are] the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
95:8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, [and] as [in] the day of temptation in the wilderness:
95:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
95:10 Forty years long was I grieved with [this] generation, and said, It [is] a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
95:11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
96:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
96:2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.
96:3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
96:4 For the LORD [is] great, and greatly to be praised: he [is] to be feared above all gods.
96:5 For all the gods of the nations [are] idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
96:6 Honour and majesty [are] before him: strength and beauty [are] in his sanctuary.
96:7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
96:8 Give unto the LORD the glory [due unto] his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.
96:9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
96:10 Say among the heathen [that] the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
96:11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
96:12 Let the field be joyful, and all that [is] therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
96:13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
97:1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad [thereof].
97:2 Clouds and darkness [are] round about him: righteousness and judgment [are] the habitation of his throne.
97:3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
97:6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
97:7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all [ye] gods.
97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
97:9 For thou, LORD, [art] high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
97:11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
97:12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
98:1 <
> O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
98:3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
98:4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
98:5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
98:6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
98:7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
98:8 Let the floods clap [their] hands: let the hills be joyful together
98:9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth [between] the cherubims; let the earth be moved.
99:2 The LORD [is] great in Zion; and he [is] high above all the people.
99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is] holy.
99:4 The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; [for] he [is] holy.
99:6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.
99:7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance [that] he gave them.
99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.
99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God [is] holy.
100:1 <

100:3 Know ye that the LORD he [is] God: [it is] he [that] hath made us, and not we ourselves; [we are] his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, [and] into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, [and] bless his name.
100:5 For the LORD [is] good; his mercy [is] everlasting; and his truth [endureth] to all generations.
101:1 <
> I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
101:2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; [it] shall not cleave to me.
101:4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked [person].
101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
101:6 Mine eyes [shall be] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
102:1 <
> Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day [when] I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day [when] I call answer me speedily.
102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
102:4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
102:7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; [and] they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
102:11 My days [are] like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
102:12 But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
102:13 Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years [are] throughout all generations.
102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens [are] the work of thy hands.
102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
102:27 But thou [art] the same, and thy years shall have no end.
102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
103:1 <<[A Psalm] of David.>> Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, [bless] his holy name.
103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
103:4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good [things; so that] thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
103:6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
103:8 The LORD [is] merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
103:9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep [his anger] for ever.
103:10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, [so] great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
103:12 As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
103:13 Like as a father pitieth [his] children, [so] the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we [are] dust.
103:15 [As for] man, his days [are] as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
103:16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
103:17 But the mercy of the LORD [is] from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
103:18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
103:19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
103:21 Bless ye the LORD, all [ye] his hosts; [ye] ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
103:22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
104:2 Who coverest [thyself] with light as [with] a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
104:5 [Who] laid the foundations of the earth, [that] it should not be removed for ever.
104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as [with] a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, [which] run among the hills.
104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
104:12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, [which] sing among the branches.
104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
104:15 And wine [that] maketh glad the heart of man, [and] oil to make [his] face to shine, and bread [which] strengtheneth man's heart.
104:16 The trees of the LORD are full [of sap]; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
104:17 Where the birds make their nests: [as for] the stork, the fir trees [are] her house.
104:18 The high hills [are] a refuge for the wild goats; [and] the rocks for the conies.
104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep [forth].
104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
104:22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
104:25 [So is] this great and wide sea, wherein [are] things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
104:26 There go the ships: [there is] that leviathan, [whom] thou hast made to play therein.
104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give [them] their meat in due season.
104:28 [That] thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
105:7 He [is] the LORD our God: his judgments [are] in all the earth.
105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word [which] he commanded to a thousand generations.
105:9 Which [covenant] he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, [and] to Israel [for] an everlasting covenant:
105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
105:12 When they were [but] a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.
105:13 When they went from one nation to another, from [one] kingdom to another people;
105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
105:15 [Saying], Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
105:16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.
105:17 He sent a man before them, [even] Joseph, [who] was sold for a servant:
105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.
105:20 The king sent and loosed him; [even] the ruler of the people, and let him go free.
105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.
105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
105:24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.
105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
105:26 He sent Moses his servant; [and] Aaron whom he had chosen.
105:27 They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.
105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.
105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, [and] lice in all their coasts.
105:32 He gave them hail for rain, [and] flaming fire in their land.
105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.
105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,
105:35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.
105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and [there was] not one feeble [person] among their tribes.
105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.
105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.
105:40 [The people] asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places [like] a river.
105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, [and] Abraham his servant.
105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, [and] his chosen with gladness:
105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;
105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? [who] can shew forth all his praise?
106:3 Blessed [are] they that keep judgment, [and] he that doeth righteousness at all times.
106:4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour [that thou bearest unto] thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked [him] at the sea, [even] at the Red sea.
106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated [them], and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, [and] Aaron the saint of the LORD.
106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
106:20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.
106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [and] terrible things by the Red sea.
106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy [them].
106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:
106:25 But murmured in their tents, [and] hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.
106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
106:29 Thus they provoked [him] to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and [so] the plague was stayed.
106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.
106:32 They angered [him] also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:
106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
106:36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
106:38 And shed innocent blood, [even] the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.
106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.
106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked [him] with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:
106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, [and] to triumph in thy praise.
106:48 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
107:1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say [so], whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
107:3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he delivered them out of their distresses.
107:7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
107:8 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
107:10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, [being] bound in affliction and iron;
107:11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
107:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and [there was] none to help.
107:13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saved them out of their distresses.
107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
107:15 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
107:17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
107:18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
107:19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saveth them out of their distresses.
107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered [them] from their destructions.
107:21 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
107:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
107:24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
107:25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
107:26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
107:27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
107:28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
107:29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
107:30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
107:31 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
107:33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
107:35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
107:36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
107:37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
107:38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
107:39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
107:40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, [where there is] no way.
107:41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh [him] families like a flock.
107:42 The righteous shall see [it], and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
107:43 Whoso [is] wise, and will observe these [things], even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
108:1 <
> O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself] will awake early.
108:3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
108:4 For thy mercy [is] great above the heavens: and thy truth [reacheth] unto the clouds.
108:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
108:6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save [with] thy right hand, and answer me.
108:7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
108:8 Gilead [is] mine; Manasseh [is] mine; Ephraim also [is] the strength of mine head; Judah [is] my lawgiver;
108:9 Moab [is] my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
108:10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
108:11 [Wilt] not [thou], O God, [who] hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
108:12 Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.
108:13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that] shall tread down our enemies.
109:1 <> Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
109:2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
109:3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
109:4 For my love they are my adversaries: but I [give myself unto] prayer.
109:5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
109:7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
109:8 Let his days be few; [and] let another take his office.
109:9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
109:10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek [their bread] also out of their desolate places.
109:11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.
109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; [and] in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
109:16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
109:17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
109:18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
109:19 Let it be unto him as the garment [which] covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
109:20 [Let] this [be] the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy [is] good, deliver thou me.
109:22 For I [am] poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.
109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
109:25 I became also a reproach unto them: [when] they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
109:26 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
109:27 That they may know that this [is] thy hand; [that] thou, LORD, hast done it.
109:28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.
109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save [him] from those that condemn his soul.
110:1 <
> The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
110:3 Thy people [shall be] willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
110:5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
110:6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill [the places] with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
110:7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
111:1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with [my] whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and [in] the congregation.
111:2 The works of the LORD [are] great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
111:3 His work [is] honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD [is] gracious and full of compassion.
111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
111:6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
111:7 The works of his hands [are] verity and judgment; all his commandments [are] sure.
111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, [and are] done in truth and uprightness.
111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend [is] his name.
111:10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.
112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth the LORD, [that] delighteth greatly in his commandments.
112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
112:3 Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: [he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
112:8 His heart [is] established, he shall not be afraid, until he see [his desire] upon his enemies.
112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
112:10 The wicked shall see [it], and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name [is] to be praised.
113:4 The LORD [is] high above all nations, [and] his glory above the heavens.
113:5 Who [is] like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
113:6 Who humbleth [himself] to behold [the things that are] in heaven, and in the earth!
113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
113:8 That he may set [him] with princes, [even] with the princes of his people.
113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, [and to be] a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion.
114:3 The sea saw [it], and fled: Jordan was driven back.
114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, [and] the little hills like lambs.
114:5 What [ailed] thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, [that] thou wast driven back?
114:6 Ye mountains, [that] ye skipped like rams; [and] ye little hills, like lambs?
114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
114:8 Which turned the rock [into] a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, [and] for thy truth's sake.
115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] now their God?
115:3 But our God [is] in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
115:4 Their idols [are] silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
115:8 They that make them are like unto them; [so is] every one that trusteth in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he [is] their help and their shield.
115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he [is] their help and their shield.
115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he [is] their help and their shield.
115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless [us]; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, [both] small and great.
115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
115:15 Ye [are] blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heaven, [even] the heavens, [are] the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications.
116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon [him] as long as I live.
116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
116:5 Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God [is] merciful.
116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, [and] my feet from falling.
116:9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
116:11 I said in my haste, All men [are] liars.
116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD [for] all his benefits toward me?
116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
116:14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his saints.
116:16 O LORD, truly I [am] thy servant; I [am] thy servant, [and] the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
116:18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
116:19 In the courts of the LORD'S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
117:1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD [endureth] for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: because his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, [and set me] in a large place.
118:6 The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
118:7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see [my desire] upon them that hate me.
118:8 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
118:9 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:12 They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
118:14 The LORD [is] my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation [is] in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, [and] I will praise the LORD:
118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner.
118:23 This is the LORD'S doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes.
118:24 This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
118:26 Blessed [be] he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
118:27 God [is] the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, [even] unto the horns of the altar.
118:28 Thou [art] my God, and I will praise thee: [thou art] my God, I will exalt thee.
118:29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
119:1 ALEPH. Blessed [are] the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
119:2 Blessed [are] they that keep his testimonies, [and that] seek him with the whole heart.
119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
119:4 Thou hast commanded [us] to keep thy precepts diligently.
119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
119:9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed [thereto] according to thy word.
119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
119:12 Blessed [art] thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as [much as] in all riches.
119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
119:17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, [that] I may live, and keep thy word.
119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
119:19 I [am] a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
119:20 My soul breaketh for the longing [that it hath] unto thy judgments at all times.
119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud [that are] cursed, which do err from thy commandments.
119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.
119:23 Princes also did sit [and] speak against me: [but] thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
119:24 Thy testimonies also [are] my delight [and] my counsellors.
119:25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
119:26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.
119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid [before me].
119:31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
119:33 HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it [unto] the end.
119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with [my] whole heart.
119:35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; [and] quicken thou me in thy way.
119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who [is devoted] to thy fear.
119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments [are] good.
119:40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.
119:41 VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, [even] thy salvation, according to thy word.
119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
119:48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
119:49 ZAIN. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
119:50 This [is] my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: [yet] have I not declined from thy law.
119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.
119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.
119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
119:57 CHETH. [Thou art] my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.
119:58 I intreated thy favour with [my] whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: [but] I have not forgotten thy law.
119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.
119:63 I [am] a companion of all [them] that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.
119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.
119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.
119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
119:68 Thou [art] good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: [but] I will keep thy precepts with [my] whole heart.
119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; [but] I delight in thy law.
119:71 [It is] good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
119:72 The law of thy mouth [is] better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
119:73 JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments [are] right, and [that] thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.
119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law [is] my delight.
119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: [but] I will meditate in thy precepts.
119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.
119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
119:81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: [but] I hope in thy word.
119:82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; [yet] do I not forget thy statutes.
119:84 How many [are] the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which [are] not after thy law.
119:86 All thy commandments [are] faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.
119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.
119:88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.
119:89 LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
119:90 Thy faithfulness [is] unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all [are] thy servants.
119:92 Unless thy law [had been] my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
119:94 I [am] thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: [but] I will consider thy testimonies.
119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: [but] thy commandment [is] exceeding broad.
119:97 MEM. O how love I thy law! it [is] my meditation all the day.
119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they [are] ever with me.
119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies [are] my meditation.
119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.
119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! [yea, sweeter] than honey to my mouth!
119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
119:105 NUN. Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform [it], that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
119:109 My soul [is] continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they [are] the rejoicing of my heart.
119:112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, [even unto] the end.
119:113 SAMECH. I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love.
119:114 Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.
119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.
119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit [is] falsehood.
119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like] dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.
119:121 AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.
119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.
119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
119:124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
119:125 I [am] thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
119:126 [It is] time for [thee], LORD, to work: [for] they have made void thy law.
119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
119:128 Therefore I esteem all [thy] precepts [concerning] all [things to be] right; [and] I hate every false way.
119:129 PE. Thy testimonies [are] wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
119:137 TZADDI. Righteous [art] thou, O LORD, and upright [are] thy judgments.
119:138 Thy testimonies [that] thou hast commanded [are] righteous and very faithful.
119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.
119:140 Thy word [is] very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
119:141 I [am] small and despised: [yet] do not I forget thy precepts.
119:142 Thy righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and thy law [is] the truth.
119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: [yet] thy commandments [are] my delights.
119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies [is] everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
119:145 KOPH. I cried with [my] whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy statutes.
119:146 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.
119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.
119:148 Mine eyes prevent the [night] watches, that I might meditate in thy word.
119:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.
119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.
119:151 Thou [art] near, O LORD; and all thy commandments [are] truth.
119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.
119:153 RESH. Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
119:155 Salvation [is] far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.
119:156 Great [are] thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments.
119:157 Many [are] my persecutors and mine enemies; [yet] do I not decline from thy testimonies.
119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.
119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
119:160 Thy word [is] true [from] the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments [endureth] for ever.
119:161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
119:163 I hate and abhor lying: [but] thy law do I love.
119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.
119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
119:166 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.

119:173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.
119:174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law [is] my delight.

120:1 <
> In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
120:2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, [and] from a deceitful tongue.
120:3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
120:4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, [that] I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
120:7 I [am for] peace: but when I speak, they [are] for war.

> I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
121:2 My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5 The LORD [is] thy keeper: the LORD [is] thy shade upon thy right hand.
121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
122:1 <
> I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
122:2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
122:3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
122:4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
122:5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
122:7 Peace be within thy walls, [and] prosperity within thy palaces.
122:8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace [be] within thee.
122:9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
123:1 <
> Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
123:2 Behold, as the eyes of servants [look] unto the hand of their masters, [and] as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes [wait] upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
123:4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, [and] with the contempt of the proud.
124:1 <
> If [it had not been] the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
124:2 If [it had not been] the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
124:3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
124:4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
124:5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
124:6 Blessed [be] the LORD, who hath not given us [as] a prey to their teeth.
124:7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
124:8 Our help [is] in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
125:1 <
> They that trust in the LORD [shall be] as mount Zion, [which] cannot be removed, [but] abideth for ever.
125:2 As the mountains [are] round about Jerusalem, so the LORD [is] round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
125:3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
125:4 Do good, O LORD, unto [those that be] good, and [to them that are] upright in their hearts.
125:5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: [but] peace [shall be] upon Israel.
126:1 <
> When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
126:2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.
126:3 The LORD hath done great things for us; [whereof] we are glad.
126:4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves [with him].
127:1 <
> Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh [but] in vain.
127:2 [It is] vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: [for] so he giveth his beloved sleep.
127:3 Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward.
127:4 As arrows [are] in the hand of a mighty man; so [are] children of the youth.
127:5 Happy [is] the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
128:1 <

128:2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy [shalt] thou [be], and [it shall be] well with thee.
128:3 Thy wife [shall be] as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
128:4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.
128:5 The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
128:6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, [and] peace upon Israel.

129:2 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
129:3 The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
129:4 The LORD [is] righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
129:5 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
129:6 Let them be as the grass [upon] the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
129:7 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
129:8 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD [be] upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.
130:1 <
> Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
130:2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
130:4 But [there is] forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
130:6 My soul [waiteth] for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: [I say, more than] they that watch for the morning.
130:7 Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD [there is] mercy, and with him [is] plenteous redemption.
130:8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
131:1 <
> LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
131:2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child.
131:3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.
132:1 A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, [and] all his afflictions:
132:2 How he sware unto the LORD, [and] vowed unto the mighty [God] of Jacob;
132:3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
132:4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, [or] slumber to mine eyelids,
132:5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty [God] of Jacob.
132:6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
132:7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
132:8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
132:9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
132:10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
132:11 The LORD hath sworn [in] truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
132:12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
132:13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired [it] for his habitation.
132:14 This [is] my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
132:15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
132:16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
132:17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
132:18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
133:1 <
> Behold, how good and how pleasant [it is] for brethren to dwell together in unity!
133:2 [It is] like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, [even] Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
133:3 As the dew of Hermon, [and as the dew] that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, [even] life for evermore.

135:6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, [that] did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

135:8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
135:9 [Who] sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
135:10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;
135:11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:
135:12 And gave their land [for] an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.
135:13 Thy name, O LORD, [endureth] for ever; [and] thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.
135:14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent himself concerning his servants.
135:15 The idols of the heathen [are] silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
135:16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
135:17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there [any] breath in their mouths.

137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
137:3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us [required of us] mirth, [saying], Sing us [one] of the songs of Zion.
137:4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?
137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget [her cunning].
137:6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
137:7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase [it], rase [it, even] to the foundation thereof.
137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy [shall he be], that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
137:9 Happy [shall he be], that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

138:5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great [is] the glory of the LORD.
138:6 Though the LORD [be] high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.
139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them.
139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

143:4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
143:5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.

143:7 Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
143:8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
