The Book of Psalms
Part 2 (Psalms 76-150)
76:1: In Judah is God known: his name is great in
76:2: In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling
place in Zion.
76:3: There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield,
and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
76:4: Thou art more glorious and excellent than the
mountains of prey.
76:5: The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept
their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.
76:6: At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot
and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
76:7: Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who
may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
76:8: Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from
heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
76:9: When God arose to judgment, to save all the
meek of the earth. Selah.
76:10: Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee:
the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
76:11: Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all
that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to
76:12: He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he
is terrible to the kings of the earth.
77:1: I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God
with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
77:2: In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord:
my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be
77:3: I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained,
and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
77:4: Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled
that I cannot speak.
77:5: I have considered the days of old, the years
of ancient times.
77:6: I call to remembrance my song in the night:
I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
77:7: Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will
he be favourable no more?
77:8: Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his
promise fail for evermore?
77:9: Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he
in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
77:10: And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will
remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
77:11: I will remember the works of the LORD: surely
I will remember thy wonders of old.
77:12: I will meditate also of all thy work, and
talk of thy doings.
77:13: Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is
so great a God as our God?
77:14: Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou
hast declared thy strength among the people.
77:15: Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people,
the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
77:16: The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw
thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.
77:17: The clouds poured out water: the skies sent
out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad.
77:18: The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven:
the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
77:19: Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the
great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
77:20: Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the
hand of Moses and Aaron.
78:1: Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your
ears to the words of my mouth.
78:2: I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter
dark sayings of old:
78:3: Which we have heard and known, and our fathers
have told us.
78:4: We will not hide them from their children,
shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and
his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
78:5: For he established a testimony in Jacob, and
appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that
they should make them known to their children:
78:6: That the generation to come might know them,
even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare
them to their children:
78:7: That they might set their hope in God, and
not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
78:8: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn
and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart
aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
78:9: The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying
bows, turned back in the day of battle.
78:10: They kept not the covenant of God, and refused
to walk in his law;
78:11: And forgat his works, and his wonders that
he had shewed them.
78:12: Marvellous things did he in the sight of their
fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
78:13: He divided the sea, and caused them to pass
through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
78:14: In the daytime also he led them with a cloud,
and all the night with a light of fire.
78:15: He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and
gave them drink as out of the great depths.
78:16: He brought streams also out of the rock, and
caused waters to run down like rivers.
78:17: And they sinned yet more against him by provoking
the most High in the wilderness.
78:18: And they tempted God in their heart by asking
meat for their lust.
78:19: Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can
God furnish a table in the wilderness?
78:20: Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters
gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also?
can he provide flesh for his people?
78:21: Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth:
so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against
78:22: Because they believed not in God, and trusted
not in his salvation:
78:23: Though he had commanded the clouds from above,
and opened the doors of heaven,
78:24: And had rained down manna upon them to eat,
and had given them of the corn of heaven.
78:25: Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat
to the full.
78:26: He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven:
and by his power he brought in the south wind.
78:27: He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and
feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
78:28: And he let it fall in the midst of their camp,
round about their habitations.
78:29: So they did eat, and were well filled: for
he gave them their own desire;
78:30: They were not estranged from their lust.
But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
78:31: The wrath of God came upon them, and slew
the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
78:32: For all this they sinned still, and believed
not for his wondrous works.
78:33: Therefore their days did he consume in vanity,
and their years in trouble.
78:34: When he slew them, then they sought him: and
they returned and enquired early after God.
78:35: And they remembered that God was their rock,
and the high God their redeemer.
78:36: Nevertheless they did flatter him with their
mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
78:37: For their heart was not right with him, neither
were they stedfast in his covenant.
78:38: But he, being full of compassion, forgave
their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned
he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
78:39: For he remembered that they were but flesh;
a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
78:40: How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness,
and grieve him in the desert!
78:41: Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and
limited the Holy One of Israel.
78:42: They remembered not his hand, nor the day
when he delivered them from the enemy.
78:43: How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and
his wonders in the field of Zoan:
78:44: And had turned their rivers into blood; and
their floods, that they could not drink.
78:45: He sent divers sorts of flies among them,
which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
78:46: He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller,
and their labour unto the locust.
78:47: He destroyed their vines with hail, and their
sycomore trees with frost.
78:48: He gave up their cattle also to the hail,
and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
78:49: He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger,
wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among
78:50: He made a way to his anger; he spared not
their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
78:51: And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the
chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
78:52: But made his own people to go forth like sheep,
and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
78:53: And he led them on safely, so that they feared
not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
78:54: And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary,
even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.
78:55: He cast out the heathen also before them,
and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of
Israel to dwell in their tents.
78:56: Yet they tempted and provoked the most high
God, and kept not his testimonies:
78:57: But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like
their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
78:58: For they provoked him to anger with their
high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
78:59: When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly
78:60: So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,
the tent which he placed among men;
78:61: And delivered his strength into captivity,
and his glory into the enemy's hand.
78:62: He gave his people over also unto the sword;
and was wroth with his inheritance.
78:63: The fire consumed their young men; and their
maidens were not given to marriage.
78:64: Their priests fell by the sword; and their
widows made no lamentation.
78:65: Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep,
and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
78:66: And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts:
he put them to a perpetual reproach.
78:67: Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph,
and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
78:68: But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion
which he loved.
78:69: And he built his sanctuary like high palaces,
like the earth which he hath established for ever.
78:70: He chose David also his servant, and took
him from the sheepfolds:
78:71: From following the ewes great with young he
brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
78:72: So he fed them according to the integrity
of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
79:1: O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance;
thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on
79:2: The dead bodies of thy servants have they given
to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints
unto the beasts of the earth.
79:3: Their blood have they shed like water round
about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.
79:4: We are become a reproach to our neighbours,
a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
79:5: How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever?
shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
79:6: Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have
not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon
79:7: For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste
his dwelling place.
79:8: O remember not against us former iniquities:
let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought
79:9: Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory
of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy
79:10: Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is
their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by
the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed.
79:11: Let the sighing of the prisoner come before
thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those
that are appointed to die;
79:12: And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into
their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee,
79:13: So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture
will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise
to all generations.
80:1: Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest
Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims,
80:2: Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir
up thy strength, and come and save us.
80:3: Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to
shine; and we shall be saved.
80:4: O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be
angry against the prayer of thy people?
80:5: Thou feedest them with the bread of tears;
and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
80:6: Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours:
and our enemies laugh among themselves.
80:7: Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy
face to shine; and we shall be saved.
80:8: Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou
hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
80:9: Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause
it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
80:10: The hills were covered with the shadow of
it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
80:11: She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and
her branches unto the river.
80:12: Why hast thou then broken down her hedges,
so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
80:13: The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and
the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
80:14: Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look
down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
80:15: And the vineyard which thy right hand hath
planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
80:16: It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they
perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
80:17: Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right
hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
80:18: So will not we go back from thee: quicken
us, and we will call upon thy name.
80:19: Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause
thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
81:1: Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful
noise unto the God of Jacob.
81:2: Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel,
the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
81:3: Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the
time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
81:4: For this was a statute for Israel, and a law
of the God of Jacob.
81:5: This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony,
when he went out through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language
that I understood not.
81:6: I removed his shoulder from the burden: his
hands were delivered from the pots.
81:7: Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee;
I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee
at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
81:8: Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto
thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
81:9: There shall no strange god be in thee; neither
shalt thou worship any strange god.
81:10: I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee
out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill
81:11: But my people would not hearken to my voice;
and Israel would none of me.
81:12: So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust:
and they walked in their own counsels.
81:13: Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and
Israel had walked in my ways!
81:14: I should soon have subdued their enemies,
and turned my hand against their adversaries.
81:15: The haters of the LORD should have submitted
themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
81:16: He should have fed them also with the finest
of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied
82:1: God standeth in the congregation of the mighty;
he judgeth among the gods.
82:2: How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept
the persons of the wicked? Selah.
82:3: Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice
to the afflicted and needy.
82:4: Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of
the hand of the wicked.
82:5: They know not, neither will they understand;
they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are
out of course.
82:6: I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are
children of the most High.
82:7: But ye shall die like men, and fall like one
of the princes.
82:8: Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt
inherit all nations.
83:1: Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy
peace, and be not still, O God.
83:2: For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they
that hate thee have lifted up the head.
83:3: They have taken crafty counsel against thy
people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
83:4: They have said, Come, and let us cut them off
from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in
83:5: For they have consulted together with one consent:
they are confederate against thee:
83:6: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites;
of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
83:7: Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines
with the inhabitants of Tyre;
83:8: Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen
the children of Lot. Selah.
83:9: Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to
Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
83:10: Which perished at Endor: they became as dung
for the earth.
83:11: Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb:
yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
83:12: Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses
of God in possession.
83:13: O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble
before the wind.
83:14: As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame
setteth the mountains on fire;
83:15: So persecute them with thy tempest, and make
them afraid with thy storm.
83:16: Fill their faces with shame; that they may
seek thy name, O LORD.
83:17: Let them be confounded and troubled for ever;
yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:
83:18: That men may know that thou, whose name alone
is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
84:1: How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of
84:2: My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the
courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living
84:3: Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the
swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even
thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
84:4: Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they
will be still praising thee. Selah.
84:5: Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee;
in whose heart are the ways of them.
84:6: Who passing through the valley of Baca make
it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
84:7: They go from strength to strength, every one
of them in Zion appeareth before God.
84:8: O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear,
O God of Jacob. Selah.
84:9: Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the
face of thine anointed.
84:10: For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to
dwell in the tents of wickedness.
84:11: For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the
LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold
from them that walk uprightly.
84:12: O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth
85:1: LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land:
thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
85:2: Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people,
thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
85:3: Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast
turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
85:4: Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause
thine anger toward us to cease.
85:5: Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt
thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
85:6: Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people
may rejoice in thee?
85:7: Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy
85:8: I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for
he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let
them not turn again to folly.
85:9: Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear
him; that glory may dwell in our land.
85:10: Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness
and peace have kissed each other.
85:11: Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness
shall look down from heaven.
85:12: Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good;
and our land shall yield her increase.
85:13: Righteousness shall go before him; and shall
set us in the way of his steps.
86:1: Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I
am poor and needy.
86:2: Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my
God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
86:3: Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto
86:4: Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee,
O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
86:5: For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive;
and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
86:6: Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend
to the voice of my supplications.
86:7: In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee:
for thou wilt answer me.
86:8: Among the gods there is none like unto thee,
O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
86:9: All nations whom thou hast made shall come
and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
86:10: For thou art great, and doest wondrous things:
thou art God alone.
86:11: Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy
truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
86:12: I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all
my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
86:13: For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou
hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
86:14: O God, the proud are risen against me, and
the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have
not set thee before them.
86:15: But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion,
and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
86:16: O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give
thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
86:17: Shew me a token for good; that they which
hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen
me, and comforted me.
87:1: His foundation is in the holy mountains.
87:2: The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than
all the dwellings of Jacob.
87:3: Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city
of God. Selah.
87:4: I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to
them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia;
this man was born there.
87:5: And of Zion it shall be said, This and that
man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.
87:6: The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the
people, that this man was born there. Selah.
87:7: As well the singers as the players on instruments
shall be there: all my springs are in thee.
88:1: O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day
and night before thee:
88:2: Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine
ear unto my cry;
88:3: For my soul is full of troubles: and my life
draweth nigh unto the grave.
88:4: I am counted with them that go down into the
pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:
88:5: Free among the dead, like the slain that lie
in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut
off from thy hand.
88:6: Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness,
in the deeps.
88:7: Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast
afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.
88:8: Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from
me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up,
and I cannot come forth.
88:9: Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction:
LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands
88:10: Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall
the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.
88:11: Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the
grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?
88:12: Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and
thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
88:13: But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in
the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
88:14: LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest
thou thy face from me?
88:15: I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth
up: while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
88:16: Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors
have cut me off.
88:17: They came round about me daily like water;
they compassed me about together.
88:18: Lover and friend hast thou put far from me,
and mine acquaintance into darkness.
89:1: I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for
ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all
89:2: For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for
ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
89:3: I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have
sworn unto David my servant,
89:4: Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build
up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
89:5: And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O
LORD: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
89:6: For who in the heaven can be compared unto
the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto
89:7: God is greatly to be feared in the assembly
of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are
89:8: O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like
unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
89:9: Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the
waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
89:10: Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that
is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.
89:11: The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine:
as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
89:12: The north and the south thou hast created
them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
89:13: Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand,
and high is thy right hand.
89:14: Justice and judgment are the habitation of
thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
89:15: Blessed is the people that know the joyful
sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
89:16: In thy name shall they rejoice all the day:
and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
89:17: For thou art the glory of their strength:
and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
89:18: For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy
One of Israel is our king.
89:19: Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one,
and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted
one chosen out of the people.
89:20: I have found David my servant; with my holy
oil have I anointed him:
89:21: With whom my hand shall be established: mine
arm also shall strengthen him.
89:22: The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the
son of wickedness afflict him.
89:23: And I will beat down his foes before his face,
and plague them that hate him.
89:24: But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be
with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
89:25: I will set his hand also in the sea, and his
right hand in the rivers.
89:26: He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father,
my God, and the rock of my salvation.
89:27: Also I will make him my firstborn, higher
than the kings of the earth.
89:28: My mercy will I keep for him for evermore,
and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
89:29: His seed also will I make to endure for ever,
and his throne as the days of heaven.
89:30: If his children forsake my law, and walk not
in my judgments;
89:31: If they break my statutes, and keep not my
89:32: Then will I visit their transgression with
the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
89:33: Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not
utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
89:34: My covenant will I not break, nor alter the
thing that is gone out of my lips.
89:35: Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will
not lie unto David.
89:36: His seed shall endure forever, and his throne
as the sun before me.
89:37: It shall be established for ever as the moon,
and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
89:38: But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou
hast been wroth with thine anointed.
89:39: Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant:
thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
89:40: Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou
hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
89:41: All that pass by the way spoil him: he is
a reproach to his neighbours.
89:42: Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries;
thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
89:43: Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword,
and hast not made him to stand in the battle.
89:44: Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast
his throne down to the ground.
89:45: The days of his youth hast thou shortened:
thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.
89:46: How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for
ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?
89:47: Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast
thou made all men in vain?
89:48: What man is he that liveth, and shall not
see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave?
89:49: Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses,
which thou swarest unto David in thy truth?
89:50: Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants;
how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people;
89:51: Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O
LORD; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
89:52: Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and
90:1: LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in
90:2: Before the mountains were brought forth, or
ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting
to everlasting, thou art God.
90:3: Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest,
Return, ye children of men.
90:4: For a thousand years in thy sight are but as
yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
90:5: Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they
are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth
90:6: In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth
up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
90:7: For we are consumed by thine anger, and by
thy wrath are we troubled.
90:8: Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our
secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
90:9: For all our days are passed away in thy wrath:
we spend our years as a tale that is told.
90:10: The days of our years are threescore years
and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years,
yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off,
and we fly away.
90:11: Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even
according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
90:12: So teach us to number our days, that we may
apply our hearts unto wisdom.
90:13: Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent
thee concerning thy servants.
90:14: O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we
may rejoice and be glad all our days.
90:15: Make us glad according to the days wherein
thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
90:16: Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and
thy glory unto their children.
90:17: And let the beauty of the LORD our God be
upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea,
the work of our hands establish thou it.
91:1: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the
most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
91:2: I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and
my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
91:3: Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare
of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
91:4: He shall cover thee with his feathers, and
under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield
91:5: Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by
night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
91:6: Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;
nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
91:7: A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten
thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
91:8: Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and
see the reward of the wicked.
91:9: Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my
refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
91:10: There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall
any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
91:11: For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
91:12: They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest
thou dash thy foot against a stone.
91:13: Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
91:14: Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore
will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known
91:15: He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour
91:16: With long life will I satisfy him, and shew
him my salvation.
92:1: It is a good thing to give thanks unto the
LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
92:2: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning,
and thy faithfulness every night,
92:3: Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon
the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
92:4: For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy
work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
92:5: O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts
are very deep.
92:6: A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool
92:7: When the wicked spring as the grass, and when
all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall
be destroyed for ever:
92:8: But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
92:9: For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine
enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
92:10: But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn
of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
92:11: Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine
enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that
rise up against me.
92:12: The righteous shall flourish like the palm
tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
92:13: Those that be planted in the house of the
LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
92:14: They shall still bring forth fruit in old
age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
92:15: To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my
rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
93:1: The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty;
the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself:
the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
93:2: Thy throne is established of old: thou art
93:3: The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods
have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
93:4: The LORD on high is mightier than the noise
of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
93:5: Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh
thine house, O LORD, for ever.
94:1: O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O
God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
94:2: Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render
a reward to the proud.
94:3: LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall
the wicked triumph?
94:4: How long shall they utter and speak hard things?
and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
94:5: They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and
afflict thine heritage.
94:6: They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder
94:7: Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither
shall the God of Jacob regard it.
94:8: Understand, ye brutish among the people: and
ye fools, when will ye be wise?
94:9: He that planted the ear, shall he not hear?
he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
94:10: He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not
he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
94:11: The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that
they are vanity.
94:12: Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O
LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
94:13: That thou mayest give him rest from the days
of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
94:14: For the LORD will not cast off his people,
neither will he forsake his inheritance.
94:15: But judgment shall return unto righteousness:
and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
94:16: Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
94:17: Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul
had almost dwelt in silence.
94:18: When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy,
O LORD, held me up.
94:19: In the multitude of my thoughts within me
thy comforts delight my soul.
94:20: Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship
with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
94:21: They gather themselves together against the
soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
94:22: But the LORD is my defence; and my God is
the rock of my refuge.
94:23: And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity,
and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD
our God shall cut them off.
95:1: O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make
a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
95:2: Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving,
and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
95:3: For the LORD is a great God, and a great King
above all gods.
95:4: In his hand are the deep places of the earth:
the strength of the hills is his also.
95:5: The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands
formed the dry land.
95:6: O come, let us worship and bow down: let us
kneel before the LORD our maker.
95:7: For he is our God; and we are the people of
his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear
95:8: Harden not your heart, as in the provocation,
and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
95:9: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and
saw my work.
95:10: Forty years long was I grieved with this generation,
and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they
have not known my ways:
95:11: Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should
not enter into my rest.
96:1: O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto
the LORD, all the earth.
96:2: Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth
his salvation from day to day.
96:3: Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders
among all people.
96:4: For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised:
he is to be feared above all gods.
96:5: For all the gods of the nations are idols:
but the LORD made the heavens.
96:6: Honour and majesty are before him: strength
and beauty are in his sanctuary.
96:7: Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people,
give unto the LORD glory and strength.
96:8: Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name:
bring an offering, and come into his courts.
96:9: O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness:
fear before him, all the earth.
96:10: Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth:
the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved:
he shall judge the people righteously.
96:11: Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth
be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
96:12: Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein:
then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
96:13: Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh
to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness,
and the people with his truth.
97:1: The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let
the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
97:2: Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness
and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
97:3: A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his
enemies round about.
97:4: His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth
saw, and trembled.
97:5: The hills melted like wax at the presence of
the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
97:6: The heavens declare his righteousness, and
all the people see his glory.
97:7: Confounded be all they that serve graven images,
that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
97:8: Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters
of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
97:9: For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth:
thou art exalted far above all gods.
97:10: Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth
the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of
97:11: Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness
for the upright in heart.
97:12: Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give
thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
98:1: O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath
done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath
gotten him the victory.
98:2: The LORD hath made known his salvation: his
righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
98:3: He hath remembered his mercy and his truth
toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen
the salvation of our God.
98:4: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the
earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
98:5: Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the
harp, and the voice of a psalm.
98:6: With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful
noise before the LORD, the King.
98:7: Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof;
the world, and they that dwell therein.
98:8: Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills
be joyful together
98:9: Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the
earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people
99:1: The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble:
he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.
99:2: The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above
all the people.
99:3: Let them praise thy great and terrible name;
for it is holy.
99:4: The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou
dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness
99:5: Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his
footstool; for he is holy.
99:6: Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel
among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD,
and he answered them.
99:7: He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they
kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.
99:8: Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou
wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance
of their inventions.
99:9: Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his
holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.
100:1: Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye
100:2: Serve the LORD with gladness: come before
his presence with singing.
100:3: Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he
that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and
the sheep of his pasture.
100:4: Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and
into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his
100:5: For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.
101:1: I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee,
O LORD, will I sing.
101:2: I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.
O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with
a perfect heart.
101:3: I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:
I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to
101:4: A froward heart shall depart from me: I will
not know a wicked person.
101:5: Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him
will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will
not I suffer.
101:6: Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the
land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect
way, he shall serve me.
101:7: He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within
my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
101:8: I will early destroy all the wicked of the
land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the
102:1: Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come
102:2: Hide not thy face from me in the day when
I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I
call answer me speedily.
102:3: For my days are consumed like smoke, and my
bones are burned as an hearth.
102:4: My heart is smitten, and withered like grass;
so that I forget to eat my bread.
102:5: By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones
cleave to my skin.
102:6: I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am
like an owl of the desert.
102:7: I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the
102:8: Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and
they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
102:9: For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled
my drink with weeping,
102:10: Because of thine indignation and thy wrath:
for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
102:11: My days are like a shadow that declineth;
and I am withered like grass.
102:12: But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever;
and thy remembrance unto all generations.
102:13: Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion:
for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
102:14: For thy servants take pleasure in her stones,
and favour the dust thereof.
102:15: So the heathen shall fear the name of the
LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
102:16: When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall
appear in his glory.
102:17: He will regard the prayer of the destitute,
and not despise their prayer.
102:18: This shall be written for the generation
to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the
102:19: For he hath looked down from the height of
his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
102:20: To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to
loose those that are appointed to death;
102:21: To declare the name of the LORD in Zion,
and his praise in Jerusalem;
102:22: When the people are gathered together, and
the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
102:23: He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened
102:24: I said, O my God, take me not away in the
midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.
102:25: Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the
earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
102:26: They shall perish, but thou shalt endure:
yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt
thou change them, and they shall be changed:
102:27: But thou art the same, and thy years shall
have no end.
102:28: The children of thy servants shall continue,
and their seed shall be established before thee.
103:1: Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is
within me, bless his holy name.
103:2: Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not
all his benefits:
103:3: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth
all thy diseases;
103:4: Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who
crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
103:5: Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;
so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
103:6: The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment
for all that are oppressed.
103:7: He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts
unto the children of Israel.
103:8: The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to
anger, and plenteous in mercy.
103:9: He will not always chide: neither will he
keep his anger for ever.
103:10: He hath not dealt with us after our sins;
nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
103:11: For as the heaven is high above the earth,
so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
103:12: As far as the east is from the west, so far
hath he removed our transgressions from us.
103:13: Like as a father pitieth his children, so
the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
103:14: For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth
that we are dust.
103:15: As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower
of the field, so he flourisheth.
103:16: For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
and the place thereof shall know it no more.
103:17: But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting
to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness
unto children's children;
103:18: To such as keep his covenant, and to those
that remember his commandments to do them.
103:19: The LORD hath prepared his throne in the
heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
103:20: Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel
in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice
of his word.
103:21: Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers
of his, that do his pleasure.
103:22: Bless the LORD, all his works in all places
of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
104:1: Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God,
thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
104:2: Who coverest thyself with light as with a
garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
104:3: Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the
waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the
wings of the wind:
104:4: Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers
a flaming fire:
104:5: Who laid the foundations of the earth, that
it should not be removed for ever.
104:6: Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a
garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
104:7: At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy
thunder they hasted away.
104:8: They go up by the mountains; they go down
by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
104:9: Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass
over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
104:10: He sendeth the springs into the valleys,
which run among the hills.
104:11: They give drink to every beast of the field:
the wild asses quench their thirst.
104:12: By them shall the fowls of the heaven have
their habitation, which sing among the branches.
104:13: He watereth the hills from his chambers:
the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
104:14: He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle,
and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food
out of the earth;
104:15: And wine that maketh glad the heart of man,
and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth
104:16: The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the
cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
104:17: Where the birds make their nests: as for
the stork, the fir trees are her house.
104:18: The high hills are a refuge for the wild
goats; and the rocks for the conies.
104:19: He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun
knoweth his going down.
104:20: Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein
all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
104:21: The young lions roar after their prey, and
seek their meat from God.
104:22: The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together,
and lay them down in their dens.
104:23: Man goeth forth unto his work and to his
labour until the evening.
104:24: O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom
hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
104:25: So is this great and wide sea, wherein are
things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
104:26: There go the shi there is that leviathan,
whom thou hast made to play therein.
104:27: These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest
give them their meat in due season.
104:28: That thou givest them they gather: thou openest
thine hand, they are filled with good.
104:29: Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled:
thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
104:30: Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created:
and thou renewest the face of the earth.
104:31: The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever:
the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
104:32: He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth:
he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
104:33: I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
104:34: My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will
be glad in the LORD.
104:35: Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth,
and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul.
Praise ye the LORD.
105:1: O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his
name: make known his deeds among the people.
105:2: Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk
ye of all his wondrous works.
105:3: Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of
them rejoice that seek the LORD.
105:4: Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his
105:5: Remember his marvellous works that he hath
done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
105:6: O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children
of Jacob his chosen.
105:7: He is the LORD our God: his judgments are
in all the earth.
105:8: He hath remembered his covenant for ever,
the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
105:9: Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his
oath unto Isaac;
105:10: And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law,
and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
105:11: Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of
Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
105:12: When they were but a few men in number; yea,
very few, and strangers in it.
105:13: When they went from one nation to another,
from one kingdom to another people;
105:14: He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea,
he reproved kings for their sakes;
105:15: Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my
prophets no harm.
105:16: Moreover he called for a famine upon the
land: he brake the whole staff of bread.
105:17: He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who
was sold for a servant:
105:18: Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was
laid in iron:
105:19: Until the time that his word came: the word
of the LORD tried him.
105:20: The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler
of the people, and let him go free.
105:21: He made him lord of his house, and ruler
of all his substance:
105:22: To bind his princes at his pleasure; and
teach his senators wisdom.
105:23: Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned
in the land of Ham.
105:24: And he increased his people greatly; and
made them stronger than their enemies.
105:25: He turned their heart to hate his people,
to deal subtilly with his servants.
105:26: He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom
he had chosen.
105:27: They shewed his signs among them, and wonders
in the land of Ham.
105:28: He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they
rebelled not against his word.
105:29: He turned their waters into blood, and slew
105:30: Their land brought forth frogs in abundance,
in the chambers of their kings.
105:31: He spake, and there came divers sorts of
flies, and lice in all their coasts.
105:32: He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire
in their land.
105:33: He smote their vines also and their fig trees;
and brake the trees of their coasts.
105:34: He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers,
and that without number,
105:35: And did eat up all the herbs in their land,
and devoured the fruit of their ground.
105:36: He smote also all the firstborn in their
land, the chief of all their strength.
105:37: He brought them forth also with silver and
gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
105:38: Egypt was glad when they departed: for the
fear of them fell upon them.
105:39: He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire
to give light in the night.
105:40: The people asked, and he brought quails,
and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
105:41: He opened the rock, and the waters gushed
out; they ran in the dry places like a river.
105:42: For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham
105:43: And he brought forth his people with joy,
and his chosen with gladness:
105:44: And gave them the lands of the heathen: and
they inherited the labour of the people;
105:45: That they might observe his statutes, and
keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
106:1: Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the
LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
106:2: Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?
who can shew forth all his praise?
106:3: Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he
that doeth righteousness at all times.
106:4: Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that
thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
106:5: That I may see the good of thy chosen, that
I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory
with thine inheritance.
106:6: We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed
iniquity, we have done wickedly.
106:7: Our fathers understood not thy wonders in
Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked
him at the sea, even at the Red sea.
106:8: Nevertheless he saved them for his name's
sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
106:9: He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried
up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
106:10: And he saved them from the hand of him that
hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
106:11: And the waters covered their enemies: there
was not one of them left.
106:12: Then believed they his words; they sang his
106:13: They soon forgat his works; they waited not
for his counsel:
106:14: But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness,
and tempted God in the desert.
106:15: And he gave them their request; but sent
leanness into their soul.
106:16: They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron
the saint of the LORD.
106:17: The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,
and covered the company of Abiram.
106:18: And a fire was kindled in their company;
the flame burned up the wicked.
106:19: They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped
the molten image.
106:20: Thus they changed their glory into the similitude
of an ox that eateth grass.
106:21: They forgat God their saviour, which had
done great things in Egypt;
106:22: Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible
things by the Red sea.
106:23: Therefore he said that he would destroy them,
had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn
away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.
106:24: Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they
believed not his word:
106:25: But murmured in their tents, and hearkened
not unto the voice of the LORD.
106:26: Therefore he lifted up his hand against them,
to overthrow them in the wilderness:
106:27: To overthrow their seed also among the nations,
and to scatter them in the lands.
106:28: They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor,
and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
106:29: Thus they provoked him to anger with their
inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
106:30: Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment:
and so the plague was stayed.
106:31: And that was counted unto him for righteousness
unto all generations for evermore.
106:32: They angered him also at the waters of strife,
so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
106:33: Because they provoked his spirit, so that
he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
106:34: They did not destroy the nations, concerning
whom the LORD commanded them:
106:35: But were mingled among the heathen, and learned
106:36: And they served their idols: which were a
snare unto them.
106:37: Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their
daughters unto devils,
106:38: And shed innocent blood, even the blood of
their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the
idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
106:39: Thus were they defiled with their own works,
and went a whoring with their own inventions.
106:40: Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled
against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
106:41: And he gave them into the hand of the heathen;
and they that hated them ruled over them.
106:42: Their enemies also oppressed them, and they
were brought into subjection under their hand.
106:43: Many times did he deliver them; but they
provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their
106:44: Nevertheless he regarded their affliction,
when he heard their cry:
106:45: And he remembered for them his covenant,
and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
106:46: He made them also to be pitied of all those
that carried them captives.
106:47: Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from
among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph
in thy praise.
106:48: Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting
to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the
107:1: O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.
107:2: Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom
he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
107:3: And gathered them out of the lands, from the
east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
107:4: They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary
way; they found no city to dwell in.
107:5: Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in
107:6: Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble,
and he delivered them out of their distresses.
107:7: And he led them forth by the right way, that
they might go to a city of habitation.
107:8: Oh that men would praise the LORD for his
goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:9: For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth
the hungry soul with goodness.
107:10: Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow
of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
107:11: Because they rebelled against the words of
God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
107:12: Therefore he brought down their heart with
labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.
107:13: Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble,
and he saved them out of their distresses.
107:14: He brought them out of darkness and the shadow
of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
107:15: Oh that men would praise the LORD for his
goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:16: For he hath broken the gates of brass, and
cut the bars of iron in sunder.
107:17: Fools because of their transgression, and
because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
107:18: Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat;
and they draw near unto the gates of death.
107:19: Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble,
and he saveth them out of their distresses.
107:20: He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered
them from their destructions.
107:21: Oh that men would praise the LORD for his
goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:22: And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of
thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
107:23: They that go down to the sea in ships, that
do business in great waters;
107:24: These see the works of the LORD, and his
wonders in the deep.
107:25: For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy
wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
107:26: They mount up to the heaven, they go down
again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
107:27: They reel to and fro, and stagger like a
drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
107:28: Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble,
and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
107:29: He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves
thereof are still.
107:30: Then are they glad because they be quiet;
so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
107:31: Oh that men would praise the LORD for his
goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:32: Let them exalt him also in the congregation
of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
107:33: He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and
the watersprings into dry ground;
107:34: A fruitful land into barrenness, for the
wickedness of them that dwell therein.
107:35: He turneth the wilderness into a standing
water, and dry ground into watersprings.
107:36: And there he maketh the hungry to dwell,
that they may prepare a city for habitation;
107:37: And sow the fields, and plant vineyards,
which may yield fruits of increase.
107:38: He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied
greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
107:39: Again, they are minished and brought low
through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
107:40: He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth
them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
107:41: Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction,
and maketh him families like a flock.
107:42: The righteous shall see it, and rejoice:
and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
107:43: Whoso is wise, and will observe these things,
even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
108:1: O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and
give praise, even with my glory.
108:2: Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake
108:3: I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people:
and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
108:4: For thy mercy is great above the heavens:
and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
108:5: Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens:
and thy glory above all the earth;
108:6: That thy beloved may be delivered: save with
thy right hand, and answer me.
108:7: God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice,
I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
108:8: Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim
also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
108:9: Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast
out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
108:10: Who will bring me into the strong city?
who will lead me into Edom?
108:11: Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off?
and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
108:12: Give us help from trouble: for vain is the
help of man.
108:13: Through God we shall do valiantly: for he
it is that shall tread down our enemies.
109:1: Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
109:2: For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth
of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against
me with a lying tongue.
109:3: They compassed me about also with words of
hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
109:4: For my love they are my adversaries: but I
give myself unto prayer.
109:5: And they have rewarded me evil for good, and
hatred for my love.
109:6: Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan
stand at his right hand.
109:7: When he shall be judged, let him be condemned:
and let his prayer become sin.
109:8: Let his days be few; and let another take
109:9: Let his children be fatherless, and his wife
109:10: Let his children be continually vagabonds,
and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate
109:11: Let the extortioner catch all that he hath;
and let the strangers spoil his labour.
109:12: Let there be none to extend mercy unto him:
neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
109:13: Let his posterity be cut off; and in the
generation following let their name be blotted out.
109:14: Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered
with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
109:15: Let them be before the LORD continually,
that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
109:16: Because that he remembered not to shew mercy,
but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay
the broken in heart.
109:17: As he loved cursing, so let it come unto
him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
109:18: As he clothed himself with cursing like as
with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and
like oil into his bones.
109:19: Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth
him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
109:20: Let this be the reward of mine adversaries
from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
109:21: But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy
name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.
109:22: For I am poor and needy, and my heart is
wounded within me.
109:23: I am gone like the shadow when it declineth:
I am tossed up and down as the locust.
109:24: My knees are weak through fasting; and my
flesh faileth of fatness.
109:25: I became also a reproach unto them: when
they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
109:26: Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according
to thy mercy:
109:27: That they may know that this is thy hand;
that thou, LORD, hast done it.
109:28: Let them curse, but bless thou: when they
arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
109:29: Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame,
and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with
109:30: I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth;
yea, I will praise him among the multitude.
109:31: For he shall stand at the right hand of the
poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
110:1: The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my
right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
110:2: The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength
out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
110:3: Thy people shall be willing in the day of
thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning:
thou hast the dew of thy youth.
110:4: The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent,
Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
110:5: The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through
kings in the day of his wrath.
110:6: He shall judge among the heathen, he shall
fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads
over many countries.
110:7: He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore
shall he lift up the head.
111:1: Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD
with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the
111:2: The works of the LORD are great, sought out
of all them that have pleasure therein.
111:3: His work is honourable and glorious: and his
righteousness endureth for ever.
111:4: He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:
the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
111:5: He hath given meat unto them that fear him:
he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
111:6: He hath shewed his people the power of his
works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
111:7: The works of his hands are verity and judgment;
all his commandments are sure.
111:8: They stand fast for ever and ever, and are
done in truth and uprightness.
111:9: He sent redemption unto his people: he hath
commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
111:10: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of
wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments:
his praise endureth for ever.
112:1: Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that
feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
112:2: His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation
of the upright shall be blessed.
112:3: Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and
his righteousness endureth for ever.
112:4: Unto the upright there ariseth light in the
darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
112:5: A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he
will guide his affairs with discretion.
112:6: Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the
righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
112:7: He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his
heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
112:8: His heart is established, he shall not be
afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
112:9: He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor;
his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted
112:10: The wicked shall see it, and be grieved;
he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the
wicked shall perish.
113:1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants
of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
113:2: Blessed be the name of the LORD from this
time forth and for evermore.
113:3: From the rising of the sun unto the going
down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.
113:4: The LORD is high above all nations, and his
glory above the heavens.
113:5: Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth
113:6: Who humbleth himself to behold the things
that are in heaven, and in the earth!
113:7: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and
lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
113:8: That he may set him with princes, even with
the princes of his people.
113:9: He maketh the barren woman to keep house,
and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
114:1: When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of
Jacob from a people of strange language;
114:2: Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
114:3: The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven
114:4: The mountains skipped like rams, and the little
hills like lambs.
114:5: What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest?
thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
114:6: Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and
ye little hills, like lambs?
114:7: Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the
Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
114:8: Which turned the rock into a standing water,
the flint into a fountain of waters.
115:1: Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto
thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
115:2: Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is
now their God?
115:3: But our God is in the heavens: he hath done
whatsoever he hath pleased.
115:4: Their idols are silver and gold, the work
of men's hands.
115:5: They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes
have they, but they see not:
115:6: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have
they, but they smell not:
115:7: They have hands, but they handle not: feet
have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their
115:8: They that make them are like unto them; so
is every one that trusteth in them.
115:9: O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their
help and their shield.
115:10: O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is
their help and their shield.
115:11: Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD:
he is their help and their shield.
115:12: The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will
bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the
house of Aaron.
115:13: He will bless them that fear the LORD, both
small and great.
115:14: The LORD shall increase you more and more,
you and your children.
115:15: Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven
115:16: The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's:
but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
115:17: The dead praise not the LORD, neither any
that go down into silence.
115:18: But we will bless the LORD from this time
forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
116:1: I love the LORD, because he hath heard my
voice and my supplications.
116:2: Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,
therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
116:3: The sorrows of death compassed me, and the
pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4: Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O
LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
116:5: Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea,
our God is merciful.
116:6: The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought
low, and he helped me.
116:7: Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD
hath dealt bountifully with thee.
116:8: For thou hast delivered my soul from death,
mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
116:9: I will walk before the LORD in the land of
116:10: I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was
116:11: I said in my haste, All men are liars.
116:12: What shall I render unto the LORD for all
his benefits toward me?
116:13: I will take the cup of salvation, and call
upon the name of the LORD.
116:14: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the
presence of all his people.
116:15: Precious in the sight of the LORD is the
death of his saints.
116:16: O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy
servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
116:17: I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
and will call upon the name of the LORD.
116:18: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the
presence of all his people,
116:19: In the courts of the LORD's house, in the
midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
117:1: O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise
him, all ye people.
117:2: For his merciful kindness is great toward
us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the
118:1: O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:
because his mercy endureth for ever.
118:2: Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth
118:3: Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy
endureth for ever.
118:4: Let them now that fear the LORD say, that
his mercy endureth for ever.
118:5: I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD
answered me, and set me in a large place.
118:6: The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what
can man do unto me?
118:7: The LORD taketh my part with them that help
me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
118:8: It is better to trust in the LORD than to
put confidence in man.
118:9: It is better to trust in the LORD than to
put confidence in princes.
118:10: All nations compassed me about: but in the
name of the LORD will I destroy them.
118:11: They compassed me about; yea, they compassed
me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:12: They compassed me about like bees; they are
quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I
will destroy them.
118:13: Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might
fall: but the LORD helped me.
118:14: The LORD is my strength and song, and is
become my salvation.
118:15: The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in
the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth
118:16: The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the
right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
118:17: I shall not die, but live, and declare the
works of the LORD.
118:18: The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath
not given me over unto death.
118:19: Open to me the gates of righteousness: I
will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
118:20: This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous
118:21: I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me,
and art become my salvation.
118:22: The stone which the builders refused is become
the head stone of the corner.
118:23: This is the LORD's doing; it is marvellous
in our eyes.
118:24: This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
118:25: Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD,
I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
118:26: Blessed be he that cometh in the name of
the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
118:27: God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light:
bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
118:28: Thou art my God, and I will praise thee:
thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
118:29: O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.
119:1: Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who
walk in the law of the LORD.
119:2: Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,
and that seek him with the whole heart.
119:3: They also do no iniquity: they walk in his
119:4: Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts
119:5: O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
119:6: Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect
unto all thy commandments.
119:7: I will praise thee with uprightness of heart,
when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
119:8: I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not
119:9: Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his
way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
119:10: With my whole heart have I sought thee: O
let me not wander from thy commandments.
119:11: Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I
might not sin against thee.
119:12: Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
119:13: With my lips have I declared all the judgments
of thy mouth.
119:14: I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies,
as much as in all riches.
119:15: I will meditate in thy precepts, and have
respect unto thy ways.
119:16: I will delight myself in thy statutes: I
will not forget thy word.
119:17: Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I
may live, and keep thy word.
119:18: Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous
things out of thy law.
119:19: I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy
commandments from me.
119:20: My soul breaketh for the longing that it
hath unto thy judgments at all times.
119:21: Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed,
which do err from thy commandments.
119:22: Remove from me reproach and contempt; for
I have kept thy testimonies.
119:23: Princes also did sit and speak against me:
but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
119:24: Thy testimonies also are my delight and my
119:25: My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou
me according to thy word.
119:26: I have declared my ways, and thou heardest
me: teach me thy statutes.
119:27: Make me to understand the way of thy precepts:
so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
119:28: My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen
thou me according unto thy word.
119:29: Remove from me the way of lying: and grant
me thy law graciously.
119:30: I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments
have I laid before me.
119:31: I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD,
put me not to shame.
119:32: I will run the way of thy commandments, when
thou shalt enlarge my heart.
119:33: Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes;
and I shall keep it unto the end.
119:34: Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy
law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
119:35: Make me to go in the path of thy commandments;
for therein do I delight.
119:36: Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and
not to covetousness.
119:37: Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity;
and quicken thou me in thy way.
119:38: Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is
devoted to thy fear.
119:39: Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy
judgments are good.
119:40: Behold, I have longed after thy precepts:
quicken me in thy righteousness.
119:41: Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD,
even thy salvation, according to thy word.
119:42: So shall I have wherewith to answer him that
reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
119:43: And take not the word of truth utterly out
of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
119:44: So shall I keep thy law continually for ever
119:45: And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy
119:46: I will speak of thy testimonies also before
kings, and will not be ashamed.
119:47: And I will delight myself in thy commandments,
which I have loved.
119:48: My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments,
which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
119:49: Remember the word unto thy servant, upon
which thou hast caused me to hope.
119:50: This is my comfort in my affliction: for
thy word hath quickened me.
119:51: The proud have had me greatly in derision:
yet have I not declined from thy law.
119:52: I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD;
and have comforted myself.
119:53: Horror hath taken hold upon me because of
the wicked that forsake thy law.
119:54: Thy statutes have been my songs in the house
of my pilgrimage.
119:55: I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the
night, and have kept thy law.
119:56: This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
119:57: Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said
that I would keep thy words.
119:58: I intreated thy favour with my whole heart:
be merciful unto me according to thy word.
119:59: I thought on my ways, and turned my feet
unto thy testimonies.
119:60: I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy
119:61: The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but
I have not forgotten thy law.
119:62: At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto
thee because of thy righteous judgments.
119:63: I am a companion of all them that fear thee,
and of them that keep thy precepts.
119:64: The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy:
teach me thy statutes.
119:65: Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O
LORD, according unto thy word.
119:66: Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for
I have believed thy commandments.
119:67: Before I was afflicted I went astray: but
now have I kept thy word.
119:68: Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy
119:69: The proud have forged a lie against me: but
I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
119:70: Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight
in thy law.
119:71: It is good for me that I have been afflicted;
that I might learn thy statutes.
119:72: The law of thy mouth is better unto me than
thousands of gold and silver.
119:73: Thy hands have made me and fashioned me:
give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
119:74: They that fear thee will be glad when they
see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
119:75: I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right,
and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.
119:76: Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be
for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
119:77: Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that
I may live: for thy law is my delight.
119:78: Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt
perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy
119:79: Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and
those that have known thy testimonies.
119:80: Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that
I be not ashamed.
119:81: My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I
hope in thy word.
119:82: Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When
wilt thou comfort me?
119:83: For I am become like a bottle in the smoke;
yet do I not forget thy statutes.
119:84: How many are the days of thy servant? when
wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
119:85: The proud have digged pits for me, which
are not after thy law.
119:86: All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute
me wrongfully; help thou me.
119:87: They had almost consumed me upon earth; but
I forsook not thy precepts.
119:88: Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall
I keep the testimony of thy mouth.
119:89: For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in
119:90: Thy faithfulness is unto all generations:
thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
119:91: They continue this day according to thine
ordinances: for all are thy servants.
119:92: Unless thy law had been my delights, I should
then have perished in mine affliction.
119:93: I will never forget thy precepts: for with
them thou hast quickened me.
119:94: I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy
119:95: The wicked have waited for me to destroy
me: but I will consider thy testimonies.
119:96: I have seen an end of all perfection: but
thy commandment is exceeding broad.
119:97: O how love I thy law! it is my meditation
all the day.
119:98: Thou through thy commandments hast made me
wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.
119:99: I have more understanding than all my teachers:
for thy testimonies are my meditation.
119:100: I understand more than the ancients, because
I keep thy precepts.
119:101: I have refrained my feet from every evil
way, that I might keep thy word.
119:102: I have not departed from thy judgments:
for thou hast taught me.
119:103: How sweet are thy words unto my taste!
yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
119:104: Through thy precepts I get understanding:
therefore I hate every false way.
119:105: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light
unto my path.
119:106: I have sworn, and I will perform it, that
I will keep thy righteous judgments.
119:107: I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O
LORD, according unto thy word.
119:108: Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings
of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
119:109: My soul is continually in my hand: yet do
I not forget thy law.
119:110: The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet
I erred not from thy precepts.
119:111: Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage
for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
119:112: I have inclined mine heart to perform thy
statutes alway, even unto the end.
119:113: I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.
119:114: Thou art my hiding place and my shield:
I hope in thy word.
119:115: Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will
keep the commandments of my God.
119:116: Uphold me according unto thy word, that
I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117: Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and
I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.
119:118: Thou hast trodden down all them that err
from thy statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.
119:119: Thou puttest away all the wicked of the
earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
119:120: My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and
I am afraid of thy judgments.
119:121: I have done judgment and justice: leave
me not to mine oppressors.
119:122: Be surety for thy servant for good: let
not the proud oppress me.
119:123: Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for
the word of thy righteousness.
119:124: Deal with thy servant according unto thy
mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
119:125: I am thy servant; give me understanding,
that I may know thy testimonies.
119:126: It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for
they have made void thy law.
119:127: Therefore I love thy commandments above
gold; yea, above fine gold.
119:128: Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning
all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
119:129: Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore
doth my soul keep them.
119:130: The entrance of thy words giveth light;
it giveth understanding unto the simple.
119:131: I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed
for thy commandments.
119:132: Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto
me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
119:133: Order my steps in thy word: and let not
any iniquity have dominion over me.
119:134: Deliver me from the oppression of man: so
will I keep thy precepts.
119:135: Make thy face to shine upon thy servant;
and teach me thy statutes.
119:136: Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because
they keep not thy law.
119:137: Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright
are thy judgments.
119:138: Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded
are righteous and very faithful.
119:139: My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies
have forgotten thy words.
119:140: Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant
119:141: I am small and despised: yet do not I forget
119:142: Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,
and thy law is the truth.
119:143: Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me:
yet thy commandments are my delights.
119:144: The righteousness of thy testimonies is
everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
119:145: I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O
LORD: I will keep thy statutes.
119:146: I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall
keep thy testimonies.
119:147: I prevented the dawning of the morning,
and cried: I hoped in thy word.
119:148: Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that
I might meditate in thy word.
119:149: Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness:
O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.
119:150: They draw nigh that follow after mischief:
they are far from thy law.
119:151: Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments
119:152: Concerning thy testimonies, I have known
of old that thou hast founded them for ever.
119:153: Consider mine affliction, and deliver me:
for I do not forget thy law.
119:154: Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken
me according to thy word.
119:155: Salvation is far from the wicked: for they
seek not thy statutes.
119:156: Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken
me according to thy judgments.
119:157: Many are my persecutors and mine enemies;
yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.
119:158: I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved;
because they kept not thy word.
119:159: Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken
me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
119:160: Thy word is true from the beginning: and
every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
119:161: Princes have persecuted me without a cause:
but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
119:162: I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth
119:163: I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I
119:164: Seven times a day do I praise thee because
of thy righteous judgments.
119:165: Great peace have they which love thy law:
and nothing shall offend them.
119:166: LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and
done thy commandments.
119:167: My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I
love them exceedingly.
119:168: I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies:
for all my ways are before thee.
119:169: Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD:
give me understanding according to thy word.
119:170: Let my supplication come before thee: deliver
me according to thy word.
119:171: My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast
taught me thy statutes.
119:172: My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all
thy commandments are righteousness.
119:173: Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen
119:174: I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD;
and thy law is my delight.
119:175: Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee;
and let thy judgments help me.
119:176: I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek
thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.
120:1: In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and
he heard me.
120:2: Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips,
and from a deceitful tongue.
120:3: What shall be given unto thee? or what shall
be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
120:4: Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of
120:5: Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that
I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
120:6: My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth
120:7: I am for peace: but when I speak, they are
121:1: I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from
whence cometh my help.
121:2: My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven
121:3: He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he
that keepeth thee will not slumber.
121:4: Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither
slumber nor sleep.
121:5: The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade
upon thy right hand.
121:6: The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the
moon by night.
121:7: The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:
he shall preserve thy soul.
121:8: The LORD shall preserve thy going out and
thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
122:1: I was glad when they said unto me, Let us
go into the house of the LORD.
122:2: Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
122:3: Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact
122:4: Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the
LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name
of the LORD.
122:5: For there are set thrones of judgment, the
thrones of the house of David.
122:6: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall
prosper that love thee.
122:7: Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity
within thy palaces.
122:8: For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will
now say, Peace be within thee.
122:9: Because of the house of the LORD our God I
will seek thy good.
123:1: Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that
dwellest in the heavens.
123:2: Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto
the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the
hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God,
until that he have mercy upon us.
123:3: Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon
us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
123:4: Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning
of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
124:1: If it had not been the LORD who was on our
side, now may Israel say;
124:2: If it had not been the LORD who was on our
side, when men rose up against us:
124:3: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when
their wrath was kindled against us:
124:4: Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream
had gone over our soul:
124:5: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
124:6: Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us
as a prey to their teeth.
124:7: Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare
of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
124:8: Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made
heaven and earth.
125:1: They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount
Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.
125:2: As the mountains are round about Jerusalem,
so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for
125:3: For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon
the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands
125:4: Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good,
and to them that are upright in their hearts.
125:5: As for such as turn aside unto their crooked
ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity:
but peace shall be upon Israel.
126:1: When the LORD turned again the captivity of
Zion, we were like them that dream.
126:2: Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and
our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The
LORD hath done great things for them.
126:3: The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof
we are glad.
126:4: Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams
in the south.
126:5: They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
126:6: He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious
seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his
sheaves with him.
127:1: Except the LORD build the house, they labour
in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman
waketh but in vain.
127:2: It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit
up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved
127:3: Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
127:4: As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man;
so are children of the youth.
127:5: Happy is the man that hath his quiver full
of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with
the enemies in the gate.
128:1: Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD;
that walketh in his ways.
128:2: For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands:
happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
128:3: Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the
sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about
128:4: Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed
that feareth the LORD.
128:5: The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and
thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
128:6: Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children,
and peace upon Israel.
129:1: Many a time have they afflicted me from my
youth, may Israel now say:
129:2: Many a time have they afflicted me from my
youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
129:3: The plowers plowed upon my back: they made
long their furrows.
129:4: The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder
the cords of the wicked.
129:5: Let them all be confounded and turned back
that hate Zion.
129:6: Let them be as the grass upon the housetops,
which withereth afore it groweth up:
129:7: Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand;
nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
129:8: Neither do they which go by say, The blessing
of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.
130:1: Out of the depths have I cried unto thee,
130:2: Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications.
130:3: If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities,
O Lord, who shall stand?
130:4: But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou
mayest be feared.
130:5: I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and
in his word do I hope.
130:6: My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they
that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for
130:7: Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the
LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
130:8: And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
131:1: LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes
lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things
too high for me.
131:2: Surely I have behaved and quieted myself,
as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a
131:3: Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth
and for ever.
132:1: LORD, remember David, and all his afflictions:
132:2: How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto
the mighty God of Jacob;
132:3: Surely I will not come into the tabernacle
of my house, nor go up into my bed;
132:4: I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber
to mine eyelids,
132:5: Until I find out a place for the LORD, an
habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
132:6: Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it
in the fields of the wood.
132:7: We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship
at his footstool.
132:8: Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the
ark of thy strength.
132:9: Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness;
and let thy saints shout for joy.
132:10: For thy servant David's sake turn not away
the face of thine anointed.
132:11: The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David;
he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set
upon thy throne.
132:12: If thy children will keep my covenant and
my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also
sit upon thy throne for evermore.
132:13: For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired
it for his habitation.
132:14: This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell;
for I have desired it.
132:15: I will abundantly bless her provision: I
will satisfy her poor with bread.
132:16: I will also clothe her priests with salvation:
and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
132:17: There will I make the horn of David to bud:
I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
132:18: His enemies will I clothe with shame: but
upon himself shall his crown flourish.
133:1: Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for
brethren to dwell together in unity!
133:2: It is like the precious ointment upon the
head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went
down to the skirts of his garments;
133:3: As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that
descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded
the blessing, even life for evermore.
134:1: Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants
of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD.
134:2: Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless
134:3: The LORD that made heaven and earth bless
thee out of Zion.
135:1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of
the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.
135:2: Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in
the courts of the house of our God,
135:3: Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing
praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.
135:4: For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself,
and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
135:5: For I know that the LORD is great, and that
our Lord is above all gods.
135:6: Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in
heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
135:7: He causeth the vapours to ascend from the
ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth
the wind out of his treasuries.
135:8: Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of
man and beast.
135:9: Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst
of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
135:10: Who smote great nations, and slew mighty
135:11: Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of
Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:
135:12: And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage
unto Israel his people.
135:13: Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and
thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.
135:14: For the LORD will judge his people, and he
will repent himself concerning his servants.
135:15: The idols of the heathen are silver and gold,
the work of men's hands.
135:16: They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes
have they, but they see not;
135:17: They have ears, but they hear not; neither
is there any breath in their mouths.
135:18: They that make them are like unto them: so
is every one that trusteth in them.
135:19: Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless
the LORD, O house of Aaron:
135:20: Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that
fear the LORD, bless the LORD.
135:21: Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth
at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
136:1: O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:2: O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his
mercy endureth for ever.
136:3: O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his
mercy endureth for ever.
136:4: To him who alone doeth great wonders: for
his mercy endureth for ever.
136:5: To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for
his mercy endureth for ever.
136:6: To him that stretched out the earth above
the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:7: To him that made great lights: for his mercy
endureth for ever:
136:8: The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth
136:9: The moon and stars to rule by night: for his
mercy endureth for ever.
136:10: To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn:
for his mercy endureth for ever:
136:11: And brought out Israel from among them: for
his mercy endureth for ever:
136:12: With a strong hand, and with a stretched
out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:13: To him which divided the Red sea into parts:
for his mercy endureth for ever:
136:14: And made Israel to pass through the midst
of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:
136:15: But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the
Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:16: To him which led his people through the wilderness:
for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:17: To him which smote great kings: for his mercy
endureth for ever:
136:18: And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth
136:19: Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy
endureth for ever:
136:20: And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy
endureth for ever:
136:21: And gave their land for an heritage: for
his mercy endureth for ever:
136:22: Even an heritage unto Israel his servant:
for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:23: Who remembered us in our low estate: for
his mercy endureth for ever:
136:24: And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for
his mercy endureth for ever.
136:25: Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy
endureth for ever.
136:26: O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for
his mercy endureth for ever.
137:1: By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down,
yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2: We hanged our harps upon the willows in the
137:3: For there they that carried us away captive
required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us
mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
137:4: How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange
137:5: If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right
hand forget her cunning.
137:6: If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave
to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief
137:7: Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in
the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the
137:8: O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed;
happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
137:9: Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth
thy little ones against the stones.
138:1: I will praise thee with my whole heart: before
the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
138:2: I will worship toward thy holy temple, and
praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for
thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
138:3: In the day when I cried thou answeredst me,
and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
138:4: All the kings of the earth shall praise thee,
O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
138:5: Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD:
for great is the glory of the LORD.
138:6: Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect
unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
138:7: Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou
wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the
wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
138:8: The LORD will perfect that which concerneth
me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works
of thine own hands.
139:1: O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
139:2: Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising,
thou understandest my thought afar off.
139:3: Thou compassest my path and my lying down,
and art acquainted with all my ways.
139:4: For there is not a word in my tongue, but,
lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
139:5: Thou hast beset me behind and before, and
laid thine hand upon me.
139:6: Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it
is high, I cannot attain unto it.
139:7: Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither
shall I flee from thy presence?
139:8: If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there:
if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
139:9: If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell
in the uttermost parts of the sea;
139:10: Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy
right hand shall hold me.
139:11: If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover
me; even the night shall be light about me.
139:12: Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but
the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both
alike to thee.
139:13: For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast
covered me in my mother's womb.
139:14: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth
139:15: My substance was not hid from thee, when
I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts
of the earth.
139:16: Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being
unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which
in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
139:17: How precious also are thy thoughts unto me,
O God! how great is the sum of them!
139:18: If I should count them, they are more in
number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
139:19: Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God:
depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
139:20: For they speak against thee wickedly, and
thine enemies take thy name in vain.
139:21: Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee?
and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
139:22: I hate them with perfect hatred: I count
them mine enemies.
139:23: Search me, O God, and know my heart: try
me, and know my thoughts:
139:24: And see if there be any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
140:1: Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve
me from the violent man;
140:2: Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually
are they gathered together for war.
140:3: They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent;
adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
140:4: Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked;
preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow
140:5: The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords;
they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for
140:6: I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear
the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
140:7: O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
140:8: Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked:
further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.
140:9: As for the head of those that compass me about,
let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
140:10: Let burning coals fall upon them: let them
be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
140:11: Let not an evil speaker be established in
the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
140:12: I know that the LORD will maintain the cause
of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
140:13: Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto
thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
141:1: LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me;
give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
141:2: Let my prayer be set forth before thee as
incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.
141:3: Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep
the door of my lips.
141:4: Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to
practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me
not eat of their dainties.
141:5: Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a
kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil,
which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be
in their calamities.
141:6: When their judges are overthrown in stony
places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.
141:7: Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth,
as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.
141:8: But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord:
in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
141:9: Keep me from the snares which they have laid
for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.
141:10: Let the wicked fall into their own nets,
whilst that I withal escape.
142:1: I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with
my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication.
142:2: I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed
before him my trouble.
142:3: When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they
privily laid a snare for me.
142:4: I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but
there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man
cared for my soul.
142:5: I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art
my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
142:6: Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very
low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than
142:7: Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise
thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt
deal bountifully with me.
143:1: Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications:
in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.
143:2: And enter not into judgment with thy servant:
for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.
143:3: For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he
hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell
in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
143:4: Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within
me; my heart within me is desolate.
143:5: I remember the days of old; I meditate on
all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.
143:6: I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul
thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
143:7: Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth:
hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down
into the pit.
143:8: Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the
morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein
I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
143:9: Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee
unto thee to hide me.
143:10: Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my
God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
143:11: Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake:
for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
143:12: And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and
destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
144:1: Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth
my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
144:2: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower,
and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth
my people under me.
144:3: LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge
of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!
144:4: Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow
that passeth away.
144:5: Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch
the mountains, and they shall smoke.
144:6: Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot
out thine arrows, and destroy them.
144:7: Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver
me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
144:8: Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right
hand is a right hand of falsehood.
144:9: I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon
a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises
144:10: It is he that giveth salvation unto kings:
who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
144:11: Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange
children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is
a right hand of falsehood:
144:12: That our sons may be as plants grown up in
their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished
after the similitude of a palace:
144:13: That our garners may be full, affording all
manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and
ten thousands in our streets:
144:14: That our oxen may be strong to labour; that
there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining
in our streets.
144:15: Happy is that people, that is in such a case:
yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
145:1: I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will
bless thy name for ever and ever.
145:2: Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise
thy name for ever and ever.
145:3: Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
and his greatness is unsearchable.
145:4: One generation shall praise thy works to another,
and shall declare thy mighty acts.
145:5: I will speak of the glorious honour of thy
majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
145:6: And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible
acts: and I will declare thy greatness.
145:7: They shall abundantly utter the memory of
thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
145:8: The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion;
slow to anger, and of great mercy.
145:9: The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies
are over all his works.
145:10: All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD;
and thy saints shall bless thee.
145:11: They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom,
and talk of thy power;
145:12: To make known to the sons of men his mighty
acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
145:13: Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and
thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
145:14: The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth
up all those that be bowed down.
145:15: The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou
givest them their meat in due season.
145:16: Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the
desire of every living thing.
145:17: The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and
holy in all his works.
145:18: The LORD is nigh unto all them that call
upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
145:19: He will fulfil the desire of them that fear
him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
145:20: The LORD preserveth all them that love him:
but all the wicked will he destroy.
145:21: My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD:
and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
146:1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my
146:2: While I live will I praise the LORD: I will
sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
146:3: Put not your trust in princes, nor in the
son of man, in whom there is no help.
146:4: His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his
earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
146:5: Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for
his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:
146:6: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and
all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:
146:7: Which executeth judgment for the oppressed:
which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:
146:8: The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the
LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:
146:9: The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth
the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth
146:10: The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God,
O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.
147:1: Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing
praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
147:2: The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth
together the outcasts of Israel.
147:3: He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth
up their wounds.
147:4: He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth
them all by their names.
147:5: Great is our Lord, and of great power: his
understanding is infinite.
147:6: The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the
wicked down to the ground.
147:7: Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing
praise upon the harp unto our God:
147:8: Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth
rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
147:9: He giveth to the beast his food, and to the
young ravens which cry.
147:10: He delighteth not in the strength of the
horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
147:11: The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear
him, in those that hope in his mercy.
147:12: Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy
God, O Zion.
147:13: For he hath strengthened the bars of thy
gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.
147:14: He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth
thee with the finest of the wheat.
147:15: He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth:
his word runneth very swiftly.
147:16: He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the
hoarfrost like ashes.
147:17: He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who
can stand before his cold?
147:18: He sendeth out his word, and melteth them:
he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
147:19: He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes
and his judgments unto Israel.
147:20: He hath not dealt so with any nation: and
as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the
148:1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from
the heavens: praise him in the heights.
148:2: Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him,
all his hosts.
148:3: Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all
ye stars of light.
148:4: Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye
waters that be above the heavens.
148:5: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for
he commanded, and they were created.
148:6: He hath also stablished them for ever and
ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
148:7: Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons,
and all dee
148:8: Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind
fulfilling his word:
148:9: Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees,
and all cedars:
148:10: Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things,
and flying fowl:
148:11: Kings of the earth, and all people; princes,
and all judges of the earth:
148:12: Both young men, and maidens; old men, and
148:13: Let them praise the name of the LORD: for
his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and
148:14: He also exalteth the horn of his people,
the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel,
a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.
149:1: Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a
new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.
149:2: Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let
the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
149:3: Let them praise his name in the dance: let
them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
149:4: For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people:
he will beautify the meek with salvation.
149:5: Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them
sing aloud upon their beds.
149:6: Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
and a twoedged sword in their hand;
149:7: To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and
punishments upon the people;
149:8: To bind their kings with chains, and their
nobles with fetters of iron;
149:9: To execute upon them the judgment written:
this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
150:1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary:
praise him in the firmament of his power.
150:2: Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him
according to his excellent greatness.
150:3: Praise him with the sound of the trumpet:
praise him with the psaltery and harp.
150:4: Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise
him with stringed instruments and organs.
150:5: Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him
upon the high sounding cymbals.
150:6: Let every thing that hath breath praise the
LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
