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