Book 19 — Psalms

001:001Blessed 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.
001:002But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
001:003And 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.
001:004The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
001:005Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
001:006For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

002:001 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
002:002The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
002:003Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
002:004He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
002:005Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
002:006Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
002:007I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
002:008Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
002:009Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
002:010Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
002:011Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
002:012Kiss 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.

003:001 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
003:002Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
003:003But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
003:004I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
003:005I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
003:006I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
003:007Arise, 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.
003:008Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

004:001 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.
004:002O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
004:003But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
004:004Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
004:005Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
004:006There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
004:007Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
004:008I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

005:001 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
005:002Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
005:003My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
005:004For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
005:005The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
005:006Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
005:007But 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.
005:008Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
005:009For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
005:010Destroy 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.
005:011But 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.
005:012For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

006:001 O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
006:002Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
006:003My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
006:004Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
006:005For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
006:006I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
006:007Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
006:008Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
006:009The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
006:010Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

007:001 O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
007:002Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
007:003O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
007:004If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
007:005Let 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.
007:006Arise, 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.
007:007So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
007:008The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
007:009Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
007:010My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
007:011God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
007:012If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
007:013He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
007:014Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
007:015He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
007:016His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
007:017I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.

008:001 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
008:002Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
008:003When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
008:004What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
008:005For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
008:006Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
008:007All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
008:008The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
008:009O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

009:001 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
009:002I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.
009:003When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
009:004For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.
009:005Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
009:006O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
009:007But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.
009:008And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
009:009The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
009:010And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
009:011Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
009:012When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
009:013Have 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:
009:014That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
009:015The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
009:016The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
009:017The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
009:018For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
009:019Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
009:020Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

010:001 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?
010:002The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
010:003For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
010:004The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
010:005His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
010:006He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.
010:007His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.
010:008He 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.
010:009He 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.
010:010He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
010:011He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it.
010:012Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
010:013Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.
010:014Thou 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.
010:015Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
010:016The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
010:017LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
010:018To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

011:001 In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
011:002For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
011:003If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
011:004The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
011:005The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
011:006Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
011:007For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

012:001 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
012:002They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
012:003The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:
012:004Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?
012:005For 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.
012:006The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
012:007Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
012:008The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

013:001 How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
013:002How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
013:003Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
013:004Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
013:005But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
013:006I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

014:001 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.
014:002The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
014:003They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
014:004Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
014:005There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
014:006Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
014:007Oh 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.

015:001 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
015:002He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.
015:003He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
015:004In 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.
015:005He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

016:001 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
016:002O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
016:003But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
016:004Their 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.
016:005The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
016:006The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
016:007I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
016:008I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
016:009Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
016:010For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
016:011Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

017:001 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
017:002Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
017:003Thou 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.
017:004Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
017:005Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
017:006I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
017:007Shew 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.
017:008Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
017:009From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
017:010They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
017:011They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
017:012Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
017:013Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:
017:014From 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.
017:015As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

018:001 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
018:002The 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.
018:003I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
018:004The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
018:005The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
018:006In 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.
018:007Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
018:008There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
018:009He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
018:010And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
018:011He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
018:012At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
018:013The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
018:014Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
018:015Then 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.
018:016He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
018:017He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
018:018They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
018:019He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
018:020The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
018:021For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
018:022For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
018:023I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
018:024Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
018:025With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
018:026With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
018:027For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
018:028For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
018:029For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
018:030As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
018:031For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
018:032It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
018:033He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
018:034He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
018:035Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
018:036Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
018:037I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
018:038I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
018:039For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
018:040Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
018:041They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
018:042Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
018:043Thou 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.
018:044As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
018:045The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
018:046The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
018:047It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
018:048He 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.
018:049Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
018:050Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

019:001 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
019:002Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
019:003There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
019:004Their 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,
019:005Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
019:006His 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.
019:007The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
019:008The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
019:009The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
019:010More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
019:011Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
019:012Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
019:013Keep 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.
019:014Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

020:001 The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
020:002Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
020:003Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
020:004Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
020:005We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
020:006Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
020:007Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
020:008They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
020:009Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

021:001 The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
021:002Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
021:003For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
021:004He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
021:005His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
021:006For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
021:007For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
021:008Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
021:009Thou 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.
021:010Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
021:011For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
021:012Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.
021:013Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.

022:001 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
022:002O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
022:003But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
022:004Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
022:005They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
022:006But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
022:007All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,
022:008He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
022:009But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
022:010I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.
022:011Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
022:012Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
022:013They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
022:014I 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.
022:015My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
022:016For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
022:017I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
022:018They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
022:019But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me.
022:020Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
022:021Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
022:022I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
022:023Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
022:024For 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.
022:025My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.
022:026The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
022:027All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
022:028For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.
022:029All 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.
022:030A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
022:031They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

023:001 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
023:002He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
023:003He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
023:004Yea, 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.
023:005Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
023:006Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

024:001 The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
024:002For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
024:003Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
024:004He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
024:005He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
024:006This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
024:007Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
024:008Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
024:009Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
024:010Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

025:001 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
025:002O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
025:003Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
025:004Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
025:005Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
025:006Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
025:007Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.
025:008Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
025:009The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
025:010All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
025:011For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
025:012What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
025:013His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
025:014The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
025:015Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
025:016Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
025:017The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
025:018Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
025:019Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
025:020O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
025:021Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
025:022Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

026:001 Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
026:002Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
026:003For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
026:004I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
026:005I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
026:006I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:
026:007That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
026:008LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
026:009Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
026:010In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
026:011But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
026:012My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.

027:001 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?
027:002When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
027:003Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
027:004One 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.
027:005For 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.
027:006And 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.
027:007Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
027:008When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
027:009Hide 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.
027:010When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
027:011Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
027:012Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
027:013I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
027:014Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

028:001 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.
028:002Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
028:003Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.
028:004Give 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.
028:005Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
028:006Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
028:007The 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.
028:008The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
028:009Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.

029:001 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
029:002Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
029:003The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
029:004The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty.
029:005The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
029:006He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
029:007The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
029:008The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
029:009The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
029:010The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.
029:011The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

030:001 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
030:002O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
030:003O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
030:004Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
030:005For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
030:006And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
030:007LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
030:008I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
030:009What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
030:010Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
030:011Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
030:012To 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.

031:001 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
031:002Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
031:003For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
031:004Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.
031:005Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.
031:006I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.
031:007I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
031:008And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.
031:009Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
031:010For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
031:011I 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.
031:012I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
031:013For 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.
031:014But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.
031:015My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
031:016Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.
031:017Let 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.
031:018Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
031:019Oh 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!
031:020Thou 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.
031:021Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.
031:022For 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.
031:023O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
031:024Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

032:001 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
032:002Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.
032:003When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
032:004For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
032:005I acknowledge 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.
032:006For 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.
032:007Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
032:008I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
032:009Be 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.
032:010Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
032:011Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

033:001 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
033:002Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.
033:003Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
033:004For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.
033:005He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
033:006By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
033:007He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
033:008Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
033:009For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
033:010The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
033:011The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
033:012Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
033:013The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
033:014From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
033:015He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
033:016There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
033:017An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
033:018Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
033:019To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
033:020Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
033:021For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
033:022Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

034:001 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
034:002My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
034:003O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.
034:004I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
034:005They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
034:006This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
034:007The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
034:008O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
034:009O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
034:010The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.
034:011Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
034:012What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
034:013Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
034:014Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
034:015The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
034:016The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
034:017The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
034:018The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
034:019Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
034:020He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
034:021Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
034:022The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

035:001 Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
035:002Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
035:003Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
035:004Let 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.
035:005Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
035:006Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
035:007For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
035:008Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
035:009And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
035:010All 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?
035:011False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
035:012They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
035:013But 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.
035:014I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
035:015But 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:
035:016With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
035:017Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
035:018I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
035:019Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
035:020For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
035:021Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
035:022This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
035:023Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
035:024Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
035:025Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
035:026Let 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.
035:027Let 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.
035:028And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.

036:001 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
036:002For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
036:003The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.
036:004He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
036:005Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
036:006Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
036:007How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
036:008They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
036:009For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
036:010O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
036:011Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
036:012There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.

037:001 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
037:002For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
037:003Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
037:004Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
037:005Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
037:006And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
037:007Rest 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.
037:008Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
037:009For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
037:010For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
037:011But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
037:012The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
037:013The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
037:014The 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.
037:015Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
037:016A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
037:017For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
037:018The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
037:019They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
037:020But 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.
037:021The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
037:022For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
037:023The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
037:024Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
037:025I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
037:026He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
037:027Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
037:028For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
037:029The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
037:030The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
037:031The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
037:032The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
037:033The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
037:034Wait 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.
037:035I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
037:036Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
037:037Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
037:038But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
037:039But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
037:040And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

038:001 O lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
038:002For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
038:003There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
038:004For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
038:005My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
038:006I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
038:007For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.
038:008I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
038:009Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
038:010My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
038:011My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
038:012They 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.
038:013But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
038:014Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
038:015For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
038:016For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
038:017For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
038:018For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
038:019But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
038:020They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
038:021Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
038:022Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

039:001 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.
039:002I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
039:003My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,
039:004LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am.
039:005Behold, 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.
039:006Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
039:007And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
039:008Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
039:009I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
039:010Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
039:011When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
039:012Hear 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.
039:013O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

040:001 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
040:002He 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.
040:003And 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.
040:004Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
040:005Many, 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.
040:006Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
040:007Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
040:008I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
040:009I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
040:010I 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.
040:011Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
040:012For 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.
040:013Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
040:014Let 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.
040:015Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
040:016Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
040:017But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

041:001 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
041:002The 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.
041:003The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
041:004I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
041:005Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
041:006And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it.
041:007All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.
041:008An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
041:009Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
041:010But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
041:011By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
041:012And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.
041:013Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.

042:001 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
042:002My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
042:003My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
042:004When 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.
042:005Why 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.
042:006O 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.
042:007Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
042:008Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
042:009I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
042:010As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
042:011Why 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.

043:001 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
043:002For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
043:003O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
043:004Then 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.
043:005Why 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.

044:001 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.
044:002How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
044:003For 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.
044:004Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
044:005Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
044:006For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
044:007But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
044:008In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
044:009But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.
044:010Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
044:011Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.
044:012Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by their price.
044:013Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
044:014Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
044:015My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
044:016For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
044:017All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
044:018Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;
044:019Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
044:020If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
044:021Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
044:022Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
044:023Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.
044:024Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
044:025For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
044:026Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.

045:001 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.
045:002Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
045:003Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
045:004And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
045:005Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.
045:006Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
045:007Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
045:008All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
045:009Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
045:010Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
045:011So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.
045:012And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
045:013The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.
045:014She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
045:015With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.
045:016Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
045:017I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

046:001 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
046:002Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
046:003Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
046:004There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
046:005God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
046:006The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
046:007The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
046:008Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
046:009He 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.
046:010Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
046:011The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

047:001 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
047:002For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
047:003He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
047:004He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
047:005God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
047:006Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
047:007For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
047:008God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
047:009The 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.

048:001 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
048:002Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
048:003God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
048:004For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
048:005They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
048:006Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
048:007Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
048:008As 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.
048:009We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
048:010According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
048:011Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
048:012Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
048:013Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
048:014For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

049:001 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:
049:002Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
049:003My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
049:004I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
049:005Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
049:006They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
049:007None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
049:008(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
049:009That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
049:010For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
049:011Their 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.
049:012Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.
049:013This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
049:014Like 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.
049:015But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
049:016Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
049:017For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
049:018Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
049:019He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
049:020Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

050:001 The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
050:002Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
050:003Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
050:004He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
050:005Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
050:006And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
050:007Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
050:008I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
050:009I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
050:010For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
050:011I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
050:012If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
050:013Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
050:014Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
050:015And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
050:016But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
050:017Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.
050:018When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
050:019Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
050:020Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
050:021These 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.
050:022Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
050:023Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

051:001 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
051:002Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
051:003For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
051:004Against 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.
051:005Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
051:006Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
051:007Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
051:008Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
051:009Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
051:010Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
051:011Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
051:012Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
051:013Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
051:014Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
051:015O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
051:016For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
051:017The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
051:018Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
051:019Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

052:001 Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.
052:002The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
052:003Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
052:004Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
052:005God 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.
052:006The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
052:007Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
052:008But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
052:009I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.

053:001 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.
053:002God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
053:003Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
053:004Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
053:005There 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.
053:006Oh 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.

054:001 Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
054:002Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
054:003For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
054:004Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
054:005He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.
054:006I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good.
054:007For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.

055:001 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
055:002Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
055:003Because 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.
055:004My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
055:005Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
055:006And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
055:007Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
055:008I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
055:009Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
055:010Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
055:011Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
055:012For 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:
055:013But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
055:014We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
055:015Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
055:016As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
055:017Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
055:018He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
055:019God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
055:020He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
055:021The 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.
055:022Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
055:023But 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.

056:001 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
056:002Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
056:003What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
056:004In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
056:005Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
056:006They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
056:007Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
056:008Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
056:009When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
056:010In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
056:011In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
056:012Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
056:013For 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?

057:001 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.
057:002I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
057:003He 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.
057:004My 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.
057:005Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.
057:006They 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.
057:007My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
057:008Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
057:009I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.
057:010For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
057:011Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.

058:001 Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
058:002Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
058:003The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
058:004Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;
058:005Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
058:006Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
058:007Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
058:008As 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.
058:009Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
058:010The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
058:011So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

059:001 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.
059:002Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
059:003For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
059:004They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold.
059:005Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
059:006They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
059:007Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
059:008But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.
059:009Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.
059:010The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
059:011Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
059:012For 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.
059:013Consume 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.
059:014And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
059:015Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
059:016But 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.
059:017Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.

060:001 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
060:002Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
060:003Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
060:004Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
060:005That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
060:006God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
060:007Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
060:008Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
060:009Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
060:010Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
060:011Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
060:012Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

061:001 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
061:002From 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.
061:003For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
061:004I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
061:005For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
061:006Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.
061:007He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
061:008So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

062:001 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
062:002He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
062:003How 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.
062:004They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
062:005My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
062:006He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
062:007In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
062:008Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
062:009Surely 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.
062:010Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
062:011God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
062:012Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

063:001 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;
063:002To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
063:003Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
063:004Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
063:005My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
063:006When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
063:007Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
063:008My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
063:009But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
063:010They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
063:011But 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.

064:001 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
064:002Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
064:003Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
064:004That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
064:005They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
064:006They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
064:007But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
064:008So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
064:009And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
064:010The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

065:001 Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
065:002O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
065:003Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
065:004Blessed 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.
065:005By 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:
065:006Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
065:007Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
065:008They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
065:009Thou 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.
065:010Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
065:011Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
065:012They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.
065:013The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

066:001 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
066:002Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
066:003Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
066:004All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
066:005Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
066:006He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
066:007He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
066:008O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
066:009Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
066:010For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
066:011Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
066:012Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
066:013I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
066:014Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
066:015I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
066:016Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
066:017I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
066:018If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
066:019But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
066:020Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

067:001 God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
067:002That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
067:003Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
067:004O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
067:005Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
067:006Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
067:007God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

068:001 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
068:002As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
068:003But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
068:004Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
068:005A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
068:006God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
068:007O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
068:008The 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.
068:009Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
068:010Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
068:011The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.
068:012Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
068:013Though 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.
068:014When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.
068:015The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.
068:016Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.
068:017The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
068:018Thou 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.
068:019Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
068:020He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.
068:021But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
068:022The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea:
068:023That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same.
068:024They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
068:025The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.
068:026Bless ye God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
068:027There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
068:028Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.
068:029Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.
068:030Rebuke 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.
068:031Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
068:032Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:
068:033To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
068:034Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.
068:035O 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.

069:001 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
069:002I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
069:003I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
069:004They 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.
069:005O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
069:006Let 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.
069:007Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
069:008I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.
069:009For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
069:010When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
069:011I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
069:012They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.
069:013But 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.
069:014Deliver 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.
069:015Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
069:016Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
069:017And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
069:018Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
069:019Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.
069:020Reproach 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.
069:021They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
069:022Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
069:023Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
069:024Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
069:025Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.
069:026For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
069:027Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.
069:028Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
069:029But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
069:030I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
069:031This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
069:032The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
069:033For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
069:034Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.
069:035For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
069:036The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

070:002Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
070:003Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
070:004Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
070:005But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

071:001 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
071:002Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
071:003Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
071:004Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
071:005For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
071:006By 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.
071:007I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
071:008Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
071:009Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
071:010For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
071:011Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
071:012O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
071:013Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
071:014But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
071:015My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
071:016I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
071:017O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
071:018Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
071:019Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
071:020Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
071:021Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
071:022I 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.
071:023My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
071:024My 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.

072:001 Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
072:002He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
072:003The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
072:004He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
072:005They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
072:006He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
072:007In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
072:008He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
072:009They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
072:010The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
072:011Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
072:012For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
072:013He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
072:014He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
072:015And 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.
072:016There 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.
072:017His 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.
072:018Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
072:019And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
072:020The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

073:001 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
073:002But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
073:003For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
073:004For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
073:005They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
073:006Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
073:007Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
073:008They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
073:009They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
073:010Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
073:011And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
073:012Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
073:013Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
073:014For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
073:015If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
073:016When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
073:017Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
073:018Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
073:019How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
073:020As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
073:021Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
073:022So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
073:023Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
073:024Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
073:025Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
073:026My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
073:027For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
073:028But 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.

074:001 O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
074:002Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
074:003Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
074:004Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
074:005A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
074:006But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
074:007They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.
074:008They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
074:009We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
074:010O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
074:011Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.
074:012For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
074:013Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
074:014Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
074:015Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up mighty rivers.
074:016The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
074:017Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
074:018Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.
074:019O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
074:020Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
074:021O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.
074:022Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
074:023Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.

075:001 Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
075:002When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
075:003The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
075:004I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
075:005Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
075:006For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
075:007But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
075:008For 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.
075:009But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
075:010All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
