Book of Psalms


1:1 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the

ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the

seat of the scornful.

1:2 But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law

doth he meditate day and night.

1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,

that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also

shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

1:4 The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the

wind driveth away.

1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor

sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way

of the ungodly shall perish.

2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain


2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take

counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed,


2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords

from us.

2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall

have them in derision.

2:5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in

his sore displeasure.

2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou

[art] my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give [thee] the heathen [for] thine

inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy


2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash

them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges

of the earth.

2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] the

way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed [are] all

they that put their trust in him.

3:1 <A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.>

LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many [are] they

that rise up against me.

3:2 Many [there be] which say of my soul, [There is] no help for

him in God. Selah.

3:3 But thou, O LORD, [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the

lifter up of mine head.

3:4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of

his holy hill. Selah.

3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained


3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have

set [themselves] against me round about.

3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all

mine enemies [upon] the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth

of the ungodly.

3:8 Salvation [belongeth] unto the LORD: thy blessing [is] upon

thy people. Selah.

4:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.>

Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast

enlarged me [when I was] in distress; have mercy upon me, and

hear my prayer.

4:2 O ye sons of men, how long [will ye turn] my glory into

shame? [how long] will ye love vanity, [and] seek after

leasing? Selah.

4:3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for

himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.

4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon

your bed, and be still. Selah.

4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in

the LORD.

4:6 [There be] many that say, Who will shew us [any] good? LORD,

lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

4:7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time

[that] their corn and their wine increased.

4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD,

only makest me dwell in safety.

5:1 <To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.>

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for

unto thee will I pray.

5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the

morning will I direct [my prayer] unto thee, and will look up.

5:4 For thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:

neither shall evil dwell with thee.

5:5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all

workers of iniquity.

5:6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will

abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

5:7 But as for me, I will come [into] thy house in the multitude

of thy mercy: [and] in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy


5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine

enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

5:9 For [there is] no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward

part [is] very wickedness; their throat [is] an open sepulchre;

they flatter with their tongue.

5:10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own

counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their

transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.

5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let

them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them

also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt

thou compass him as [with] a shield.

6:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm

of David.> O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither

chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

6:2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I [am] weak: O LORD, heal

me; for my bones are vexed.

6:3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?

6:4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies'


6:5 For in death [there is] no remembrance of thee: in the grave

who shall give thee thanks?

6:6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to

swim; I water my couch with my tears.

6:7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because

of all mine enemies.

6:8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD

hath heard the voice of my weeping.

6:9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive

my prayer.

6:10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them

return [and] be ashamed suddenly.

7:1 <Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the LORD,

concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.> O LORD my God, in

thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute

me, and deliver me:

7:2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending [it] in pieces,

while [there is] none to deliver.

7:3 O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in

my hands;

7:4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me;

(yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)

7:5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take [it]; yea, let him

tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the

dust. Selah.

7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of

the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me [to] the judgment

[that] thou hast commanded.

7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about:

for their sakes therefore return thou on high.

7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according

to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity [that is]

in me.

7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but

establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and


7:10 My defence [is] of God, which saveth the upright in heart.

7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry [with the

wicked] every day.

7:12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his

bow, and made it ready.

7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he

ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived

mischief, and brought forth falsehood.

7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch

[which] he made.

7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his

violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and

will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.

8:1 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.> O

LORD our Lord, how excellent [is] thy name in all the earth!

who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained

strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the

enemy and the avenger.

8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the

moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of

man, that thou visitest him?

8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and

hast crowned him with glory and honour.

8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy

hands; thou hast put all [things] under his feet:

8:7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

8:8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, [and

whatsoever] passeth through the paths of the seas.

8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent [is] thy name in all the


9:1 <To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David.>

I will praise [thee], O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew

forth all thy marvellous works.

9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to

thy name, O thou most High.

9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and

perish at thy presence.

9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest

in the throne judging right.

9:5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the

wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

9:6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and

thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with


9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his

throne for judgment.

9:8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall

minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

9:9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge

in times of trouble.

9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee:

for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare

among the people his doings.

9:12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them:

he forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble [which I

suffer] of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the

gates of death:

9:14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the

daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit [that] they made: in

the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

9:16 The LORD is known [by] the judgment [which] he executeth:

the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion.


9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations

that forget God.

9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation

of the poor shall [not] perish for ever.

9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be

judged in thy sight.

9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: [that] the nations may know

themselves [to be but] men. Selah.

10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? [why] hidest thou

[thyself] in times of trouble?

10:2 The wicked in [his] pride doth persecute the poor: let them

be taken in the devices that they have imagined.

10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth

the covetous, [whom] the LORD abhorreth.

10:4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not

seek [after God]: God [is] not in all his thoughts.

10:5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments [are] far above

out of his sight: [as for] all his enemies, he puffeth at them.

10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for [I

shall] never [be] in adversity.

10:7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under

his tongue [is] mischief and vanity.

10:8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the

secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily

set against the poor.

10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in

wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth

him into his net.

10:10 He croucheth, [and] humbleth himself, that the poor may

fall by his strong ones.

10:11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth

his face; he will never see [it].

10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the


10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his

heart, Thou wilt not require [it].

10:14 Thou hast seen [it]; for thou beholdest mischief and

spite, to requite [it] with thy hand: the poor committeth

himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.

10:15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil [man]: seek

out his wickedness [till] thou find none.

10:16 The LORD [is] King for ever and ever: the heathen are

perished out of his land.

10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt

prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

10:18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of

the earth may no more oppress.

11:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David.> In the LORD

put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee [as] a bird to your


11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend [their] bow, they make ready their

arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the

upright in heart.

11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

11:4 The LORD [is] in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne [is] in

heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.

11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that

loveth violence his soul hateth.

11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone,

and an horrible tempest: [this shall be] the portion of their


11:7 For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his

countenance doth behold the upright.

12:1 <To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.>

Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail

from among the children of men.

12:2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: [with]

flattering lips [and] with a double heart do they speak.

12:3 The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, [and] the

tongue that speaketh proud things:

12:4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips

[are] our own: who [is] lord over us?

12:5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the

needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set [him] in

safety [from him that] puffeth at him.

12:6 The words of the LORD [are] pure words: [as] silver tried

in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from

this generation for ever.

12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are


13:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> How long wilt

thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy

face from me?

13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, [having] sorrow

in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over


13:3 Consider [and] hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes,

lest I sleep the [sleep of] death;

13:4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; [and]

those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

13:5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in

thy salvation.

13:6 I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt

bountifully with me.

14:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David.> The fool

hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt,

they have done abominable works, [there is] none that doeth


14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men,

to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God.

14:3 They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become

filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.

14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up

my people [as] they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

14:5 There were they in great fear: for God [is] in the

generation of the righteous.

14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD

[is] his refuge.

14:7 Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion!

when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob

shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.

15:1 <A Psalm of David.> LORD, who shall abide in thy

tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and

speaketh the truth in his heart.

15:3 [He that] backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to

his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth

them that fear the LORD. [He that] sweareth to [his own] hurt,

and changeth not.

15:5 [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh

reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall

never be moved.

16:1 <Michtam of David.> Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I

put my trust.

16:2 [O my soul], thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou [art] my

Lord: my goodness [extendeth] not to thee;

16:3 [But] to the saints that [are] in the earth, and [to] the

excellent, in whom [is] all my delight.

16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after]

another [god]: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer,

nor take up their names into my lips.

16:5 The LORD [is] the portion of mine inheritance and of my

cup: thou maintainest my lot.

16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant [places]; yea, I

have a goodly heritage.

16:7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins

also instruct me in the night seasons.

16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my

right hand, I shall not be moved.

16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my

flesh also shall rest in hope.

16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou

suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence [is]

fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for


17:1 <A Prayer of David.> Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto

my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of

feigned lips.

17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine

eyes behold the things that are equal.

17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited [me] in the

night; thou hast tried me, [and] shalt find nothing; I am

purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgress.

17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have

kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer.

17:5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, [that] my footsteps slip


17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God:

incline thine ear unto me, [and hear] my speech.

17:7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by

thy right hand them which put their trust [in thee] from those

that rise up [against them].

17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow

of thy wings,

17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies,

[who] compass me about.

17:10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they

speak proudly.

17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set

their eyes bowing down to the earth;

17:12 Like as a lion [that] is greedy of his prey, and as it

were a young lion lurking in secret places.

17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my

soul from the wicked, [which is] thy sword:

17:14 From men [which are] thy hand, O LORD, from men of the

world, [which have] their portion in [this] life, and whose

belly thou fillest with thy hid [treasure]: they are full of

children, and leave the rest of their [substance] to their


17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I

shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

18:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David, the servant of

the LORD, who spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the

day [that] the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his

enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,> I will love

thee, O LORD, my strength.

18:2 The LORD [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;

my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the

horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower.

18:3 I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised:

so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of

ungodly men made me afraid.

18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death

prevented me.

18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my

God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came

before him, [even] into his ears.

18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of

the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of

his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness

[was] under his feet.

18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly

upon the wings of the wind.

18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round

about him [were] dark waters [and] thick clouds of the skies.

18:12 At the brightness [that was] before him his thick clouds

passed, hail [stones] and coals of fire.

18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest

gave his voice; hail [stones] and coals of fire.

18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he

shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

18:15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations

of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the

blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many


18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which

hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD

was my stay.

18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered

me, because he delighted in me.

18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness;

according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.

18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not

wickedly departed from my God.

18:22 For all his judgments [were] before me, and I did not put

away his statutes from me.

18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine


18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my

righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his


18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an

upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the

froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.

18:27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring

down high looks.

18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will

enlighten my darkness.

18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have

I leaped over a wall.

18:30 [As for] God, his way [is] perfect: the word of the LORD

is tried: he [is] a buckler to all those that trust in him.

18:31 For who [is] God save the LORD? or who [is] a rock save

our God?

18:32 [It is] God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my

way perfect.

18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet], and setteth me upon

my high places.

18:34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is

broken by mine arms.

18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and

thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made

me great.

18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not


18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither

did I turn again till they were consumed.

18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they

are fallen under my feet.

18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle:

thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I

might destroy them that hate me.

18:41 They cried, but [there was] none to save [them: even] unto

the LORD, but he answered them not.

18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I

did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

18:43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people;

[and] thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people

[whom] I have not known shall serve me.

18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the

strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their

close places.

18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed [be] my rock; and let the God

of my salvation be exalted.

18:47 [It is] God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people

under me.

18:48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me

up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me

from the violent man.

18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the

heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.

18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy

to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.

19:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The heavens

declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his


19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth


19:3 [There is] no speech nor language, [where] their voice is

not heard.

19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their

words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle

for the sun,

19:5 Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, [and]

rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

19:6 His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and his

circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the

heat thereof.

19:7 The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the

testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple.

19:8 The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart:

the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes.

19:9 The fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring for ever: the

judgments of the LORD [are] true [and] righteous altogether.

19:10 More to be desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much

fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: [and] in keeping

of them [there is] great reward.

19:12 Who can understand [his] errors? cleanse thou me from

secret [faults].

19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let

them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I

shall be innocent from the great transgression.

19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,

be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my


20:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The LORD hear

thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend


20:2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out

of Zion;

20:3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice;


20:4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy


20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our

God we will set up [our] banners: the LORD fulfil all thy


20:6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear

him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right


20:7 Some [trust] in chariots, and some in horses: but we will

remember the name of the LORD our God.

20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and

stand upright.

20:9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.

21:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The king shall

joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly

shall he rejoice!

21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not

withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

21:3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness:

thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

21:4 He asked life of thee, [and] thou gavest [it] him, [even]

length of days for ever and ever.

21:5 His glory [is] great in thy salvation: honour and majesty

hast thou laid upon him.

21:6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast

made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.

21:7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of

the most High he shall not be moved.

21:8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand

shall find out those that hate thee.

21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine

anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the

fire shall devour them.

21:10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their

seed from among the children of men.

21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a

mischievous device, [which] they are not able [to perform].

21:12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, [when]

thou shalt make ready [thine arrows] upon thy strings against

the face of them.

21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: [so] will we

sing and praise thy power.

22:1 <To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of

David.> My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [why art

thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my


22:2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and

in the night season, and am not silent.

22:3 But thou [art] holy, [O thou] that inhabitest the praises

of Israel.

22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst

deliver them.

22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in

thee, and were not confounded.

22:6 But I [am] a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and

despised of the people.

22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the

lip, they shake the head, [saying],

22:8 He trusted on the LORD [that] he would deliver him: let him

deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

22:9 But thou [art] he that took me out of the womb: thou didst

make me hope [when I was] upon my mother's breasts.

22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou [art] my God from

my mother's belly.

22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble [is] near; for [there is]

none to help.

22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong [bulls] of Bashan

have beset me round.

22:13 They gaped upon me [with] their mouths, [as] a ravening

and a roaring lion.

22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of

joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my


22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue

cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of


22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked

have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look [and] stare upon me.

22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my


22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste

thee to help me.

22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power

of the dog.

22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from

the horns of the unicorns.

22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of

the congregation will I praise thee.

22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of

Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of

the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when

he cried unto him, he heard.

22:25 My praise [shall be] of thee in the great congregation: I

will pay my vows before them that fear him.

22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the

LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the

LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before


22:28 For the kingdom [is] the LORD'S: and he [is] the governor

among the nations.

22:29 All [they that be] fat upon earth shall eat and worship:

all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and

none can keep alive his own soul.

22:30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord

for a generation.

22:31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto

a people that shall be born, that he hath done [this].

23:1 <A Psalm of David.> The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall

not want.

23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me

beside the still waters.

23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of

righteousness for his name's sake.

23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of

death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and

thy staff they comfort me.

23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine

enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of

my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

24:1 <A Psalm of David.> The earth [is] the LORD'S, and the

fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

24:2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it

upon the floods.

24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall

stand in his holy place?

24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not

lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and

righteousness from the God of his salvation.

24:6 This [is] the generation of them that seek him, that seek

thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

24:7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye

everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

24:8 Who [is] this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty,

the LORD mighty in battle.

24:9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye

everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

24:10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he [is] the

King of glory. Selah.

25:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my


25:2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not

mine enemies triumph over me.

25:3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be

ashamed which transgress without cause.

25:4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God

of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

25:6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy

lovingkindnesses; for they [have been] ever of old.

25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:

according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake,


25:8 Good and upright [is] the LORD: therefore will he teach

sinners in the way.

25:9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he

teach his way.

25:10 All the paths of the LORD [are] mercy and truth unto such

as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

25:11 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it

[is] great.

25:12 What man [is] he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach

in the way [that] he shall choose.

25:13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit

the earth.

25:14 The secret of the LORD [is] with them that fear him; and

he will shew them his covenant.

25:15 Mine eyes [are] ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck

my feet out of the net.

25:16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I [am]

desolate and afflicted.

25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: [O] bring thou me

out of my distresses.

25:18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my


25:19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me

with cruel hatred.

25:20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for

I put my trust in thee.

25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on


25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

26:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked

in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; [therefore]

I shall not slide.

26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my


26:3 For thy lovingkindness [is] before mine eyes: and I have

walked in thy truth.

26:4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with


26:5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not

sit with the wicked.

26:6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass

thine altar, O LORD:

26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell

of all thy wondrous works.

26:8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the

place where thine honour dwelleth.

26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody


26:10 In whose hands [is] mischief, and their right hand is full

of bribes.

26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me,

and be merciful unto me.

26:12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations

will I bless the LORD.

27:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> The LORD [is] my light and my

salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my

life; of whom shall I be afraid?

27:2 When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon

me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not

fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be]


27:4 One [thing] have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek

after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days

of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in

his temple.

27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his

pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he

shall set me up upon a rock.

27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies

round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle

sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto

the LORD.

27:7 Hear, O LORD, [when] I cry with my voice: have mercy also

upon me, and answer me.

27:8 [When thou saidst], Seek ye my face; my heart said unto

thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

27:9 Hide not thy face [far] from me; put not thy servant away

in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake

me, O God of my salvation.

27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD

will take me up.

27:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path,

because of mine enemies.

27:12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for

false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe

out cruelty.

27:13 [I had fainted], unless I had believed to see the goodness

of the LORD in the land of the living.

27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall

strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

28:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my

rock; be not silent to me: lest, [if] thou be silent to me, I

become like them that go down into the pit.

28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee,

when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of

iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief

[is] in their hearts.

28:4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the

wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of

their hands; render to them their desert.

28:5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the

operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build

them up.

28:6 Blessed [be] the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of

my supplications.

28:7 The LORD [is] my strength and my shield; my heart trusted

in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;

and with my song will I praise him.

28:8 The LORD [is] their strength, and he [is] the saving

strength of his anointed.

28:9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them

also, and lift them up for ever.

29:1 <A Psalm of David.> Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give

unto the LORD glory and strength.

29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the

LORD in the beauty of holiness.

29:3 The voice of the LORD [is] upon the waters: the God of

glory thundereth: the LORD [is] upon many waters.

29:4 The voice of the LORD [is] powerful; the voice of the LORD

[is] full of majesty.

29:5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD

breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

29:6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion

like a young unicorn.

29:7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.

29:8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD

shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

29:9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and

discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one speak

of [his] glory.

29:10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth

King for ever.

29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will

bless his people with peace.

30:1 <A Psalm [and] Song [at] the dedication of the house of

David.> I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up,

and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

30:3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou

hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at

the remembrance of his holiness.

30:5 For his anger [endureth but] a moment; in his favour [is]

life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy [cometh] in the


30:6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

30:7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand

strong: thou didst hide thy face, [and] I was troubled.

30:8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made


30:9 What profit [is there] in my blood, when I go down to the

pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

30:10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my


30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou

hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

30:12 To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to thee, and

not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for


31:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> In thee, O

LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in

thy righteousness.

31:2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my

strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

31:3 For thou [art] my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy

name's sake lead me, and guide me.

31:4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me:

for thou [art] my strength.

31:5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me,

O LORD God of truth.

31:6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust

in the LORD.

31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast

considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

31:8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou

hast set my feet in a large room.

31:9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye

is consumed with grief, [yea], my soul and my belly.

31:10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with

sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my

bones are consumed.

31:11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially

among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that

did see me without fled from me.

31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a

broken vessel.

31:13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear [was] on every

side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised

to take away my life.

31:14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou [art] my God.

31:15 My times [are] in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of

mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

31:16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy

mercies' sake.

31:17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon

thee: let the wicked be ashamed, [and] let them be silent in

the grave.

31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous

things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

31:19 [Oh] how great [is] thy goodness, which thou hast laid up

for them that fear thee; [which] thou hast wrought for them

that trust in thee before the sons of men!

31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from

the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion

from the strife of tongues.

31:21 Blessed [be] the LORD: for he hath shewed me his

marvellous kindness in a strong city.

31:22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine

eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications

when I cried unto thee.

31:23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: [for] the LORD

preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud


31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart,

all ye that hope in the LORD.

32:1 <[A Psalm] of David, Maschil.> Blessed [is he whose]

transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered.

32:2 Blessed [is] the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not

iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.

32:3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring

all the day long.

32:4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture

is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.

32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I

not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the

LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

32:6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a

time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great

waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

32:7 Thou [art] my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from

trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance.


32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou

shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

32:9 Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no

understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle,

lest they come near unto thee.

32:10 Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that

trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.

32:11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout

for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.

33:1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely

for the upright.

33:2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery

[and] an instrument of ten strings.

33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

33:4 For the word of the LORD [is] right; and all his works [are

done] in truth.

33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of

the goodness of the LORD.

33:6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the

host of them by the breath of his mouth.

33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he

layeth up the depth in storehouses.

33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of

the world stand in awe of him.

33:9 For he spake, and it was [done]; he commanded, and it stood


33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he

maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of

his heart to all generations.

33:12 Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the LORD; [and] the

people [whom] he hath chosen for his own inheritance.

33:13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of


33:14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the

inhabitants of the earth.

33:15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their


33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a

mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

33:17 An horse [is] a vain thing for safety: neither shall he

deliver [any] by his great strength.

33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD [is] upon them that fear him,

upon them that hope in his mercy;

33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive

in famine.

33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he [is] our help and our


33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have

trusted in his holy name.

33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in


34:1 <[A Psalm] of David, when he changed his behaviour before

Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.> I will bless

the LORD at all times: his praise [shall] continually [be] in

my mouth.

34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall

hear [thereof], and be glad.

34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name


34:4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from

all my fears.

34:5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces

were not ashamed.

34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard [him], and saved

him out of all his troubles.

34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear

him, and delivereth them.

34:8 O taste and see that the LORD [is] good: blessed [is] the

man [that] trusteth in him.

34:9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for [there is] no want to

them that fear him.

34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that

seek the LORD shall not want any good [thing].

34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the

fear of the LORD.

34:12 What man [is he that] desireth life, [and] loveth [many]

days, that he may see good?

34:13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking


34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

34:15 The eyes of the LORD [are] upon the righteous, and his

ears [are open] unto their cry.

34:16 The face of the LORD [is] against them that do evil, to

cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

34:17 [The righteous] cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth

them out of all their troubles.

34:18 The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;

and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

34:19 Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD

delivereth him out of them all.

34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the

righteous shall be desolate.

34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of

them that trust in him shall be desolate.

35:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Plead [my cause], O LORD, with them

that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine


35:3 Draw out also the spear, and stop [the way] against them

that persecute me: say unto my soul, I [am] thy salvation.

35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my

soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that

devise my hurt.

35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of

the LORD chase [them].

35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of

the LORD persecute them.

35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net [in] a

pit, [which] without cause they have digged for my soul.

35:8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net

that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let

him fall.

35:9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice

in his salvation.

35:10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who [is] like unto thee,

which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him,

yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

35:11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge

[things] that I knew not.

35:12 They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my


35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was]

sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer

returned into mine own bosom.

35:14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or]

brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his]


35:15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered

themselves together: [yea], the abjects gathered themselves

together against me, and I knew [it] not; they did tear [me],

and ceased not:

35:16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me

with their teeth.

35:17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from

their destructions, my darling from the lions.

35:18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will

praise thee among much people.

35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over

me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a


35:20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful

matters against [them that are] quiet in the land.

35:21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] said,

Aha, aha, our eye hath seen [it].

35:22 [This] thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord,

be not far from me.

35:23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, [even] unto my

cause, my God and my Lord.

35:24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness;

and let them not rejoice over me.

35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it:

let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that

rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and

dishonour that magnify [themselves] against me.

35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my

righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be

magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his


35:28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness [and] of

thy praise all the day long.

36:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David the servant of

the LORD.> The transgression of the wicked saith within my

heart, [that there is] no fear of God before his eyes.

36:2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his

iniquity be found to be hateful.

36:3 The words of his mouth [are] iniquity and deceit: he hath

left off to be wise, [and] to do good.

36:4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a

way [that is] not good; he abhorreth not evil.

36:5 Thy mercy, O LORD, [is] in the heavens; [and] thy

faithfulness [reacheth] unto the clouds.

36:6 Thy righteousness [is] like the great mountains; thy

judgments [are] a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and


36:7 How excellent [is] thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the

children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy

house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy


36:9 For with thee [is] the fountain of life: in thy light shall

we see light.

36:10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee;

and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.

36:11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the

hand of the wicked remove me.

36:12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast

down, and shall not be able to rise.

37:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Fret not thyself because of

evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of


37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither

as the green herb.

37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in

the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee

the desires of thine heart.

37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he

shall bring [it] to pass.

37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light,

and thy judgment as the noonday.

37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not

thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of

the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in

any wise to do evil.

37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon

the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]:

yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall]

not [be].

37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight

themselves in the abundance of peace.

37:12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon

him with his teeth.

37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is


37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their

bow, to cast down the poor and needy, [and] to slay such as be

of upright conversation.

37:15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their

bows shall be broken.

37:16 A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the

riches of many wicked.

37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD

upholdeth the righteous.

37:18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their

inheritance shall be for ever.

37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the

days of famine they shall be satisfied.

37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD

[shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke

shall they consume away.

37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the

righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

37:22 For [such as be] blessed of him shall inherit the earth;

and [they that be] cursed of him shall be cut off.

37:23 The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the LORD: and he

delighteth in his way.

37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the

LORD upholdeth [him with] his hand.

37:25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen

the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

37:26 [He is] ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed [is]


37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

37:28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his

saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked

shall be cut off.

37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein

for ever.

37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue

talketh of judgment.

37:31 The law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps

shall slide.

37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay


37:33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him

when he is judged.

37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt

thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou

shalt see [it].

37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading

himself like a green bay tree.

37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought

him, but he could not be found.

37:37 Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the

end of [that] man [is] peace.

37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end

of the wicked shall be cut off.

37:39 But the salvation of the righteous [is] of the LORD: [he

is] their strength in the time of trouble.

37:40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall

deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust

in him.

38:1 <A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.> O LORD,

rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot


38:2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me


38:3 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger;

neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.

38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy

burden they are too heavy for me.

38:5 My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my


38:6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all

the day long.

38:7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and

[there is] no soundness in my flesh.

38:8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the

disquietness of my heart.

38:9 Lord, all my desire [is] before thee; and my groaning is

not hid from thee.

38:10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light

of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my

kinsmen stand afar off.

38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]: and

they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine

deceits all the day long.

38:13 But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb

man [that] openeth not his mouth.

38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth

[are] no reproofs.

38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my


38:16 For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should

rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify

[themselves] against me.

38:17 For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually

before me.

38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my


38:19 But mine enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and

they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries;

because I follow [the thing that] good [is].

38:21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.

38:22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

39:1 <To the chief Musician, [even] to Jeduthun, A Psalm of

David.> I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not

with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the

wicked is before me.

39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, [even] from good;

and my sorrow was stirred.

39:3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire

burned: [then] spake I with my tongue,

39:4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days,

what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am].

39:5 Behold, thou hast made my days [as] an handbreadth; and

mine age [is] as nothing before thee: verily every man at his

best state [is] altogether vanity. Selah.

39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are

disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who

shall gather them.

39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope [is] in thee.

39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the

reproach of the foolish.

39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst [it].

39:10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow

of thine hand.

39:11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou

makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man

[is] vanity. Selah.

39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not

thy peace at my tears: for I [am] a stranger with thee, [and] a

sojourner, as all my fathers [were].

39:13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go

hence, and be no more.

40:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> I waited

patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my


40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the

miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my


40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, [even] praise unto

our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the


40:4 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and

respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

40:5 Many, O LORD my God, [are] thy wonderful works [which] thou

hast done, and thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot

be reckoned up in order unto thee: [if] I would declare and

speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.

40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears

hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not


40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book [it is]

written of me,

40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law [is]

within my heart.

40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation:

lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.

40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have

declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not

concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great


40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let

thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.

40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine

iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to

look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore

my heart faileth me.

40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to

help me.

40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek

after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and

put to shame that wish me evil.

40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say

unto me, Aha, aha.

40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:

let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be


40:17 But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the Lord thinketh upon

me: thou [art] my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my


41:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> Blessed [is]

he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time

of trouble.

41:2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; [and] he

shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him

unto the will of his enemies.

41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing:

thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

41:4 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have

sinned against thee.

41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his

name perish?

41:6 And if he come to see [me], he speaketh vanity: his heart

gathereth iniquity to itself; [when] he goeth abroad, he

telleth [it].

41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do

they devise my hurt.

41:8 An evil disease, [say they], cleaveth fast unto him: and

[now] that he lieth he shall rise up no more.

41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did

eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.

41:10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up,

that I may requite them.

41:11 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy

doth not triumph over me.

41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and

settest me before thy face for ever.

41:13 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and

to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.

42:1 <To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah.>

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul

after thee, O God.

42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I

come and appear before God?

42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they

continually say unto me, Where [is] thy God?

42:4 When I remember these [things], I pour out my soul in me:

for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the

house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a

multitude that kept holyday.

42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and [why] art thou

disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him

[for] the help of his countenance.

42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I

remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites,

from the hill Mizar.

42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all

thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

42:8 [Yet] the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the

daytime, and in the night his song [shall be] with me, [and] my

prayer unto the God of my life.

42:9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me?

why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

42:10 [As] with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me;

while they say daily unto me, Where [is] thy God?

42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou

disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise

him, [who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.

43:1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly

nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

43:2 For thou [art] the God of my strength: why dost thou cast

me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the


43:3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let

them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.

43:4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding

joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.

43:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou

disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him,

[who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.

44:1 <To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil.>

We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us,

[what] work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.

44:2 [How] thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and

plantedst them; [how] thou didst afflict the people, and cast

them out.

44:3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword,

neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and

thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst

a favour unto them.

44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy

name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save


44:7 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them

to shame that hated us.

44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for

ever. Selah.

44:9 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not

forth with our armies.

44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which

hate us spoil for themselves.

44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep [appointed] for meat; and

hast scattered us among the heathen.

44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase

[thy wealth] by their price.

44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a

derision to them that are round about us.

44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of

the head among the people.

44:15 My confusion [is] continually before me, and the shame of

my face hath covered me,

44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by

reason of the enemy and avenger.

44:17 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee,

neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.

44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps

declined from thy way;

44:19 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons,

and covered us with the shadow of death.

44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out

our hands to a strange god;

44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets

of the heart.

44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are

counted as sheep for the slaughter.

44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast [us] not off

for ever.

44:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, [and] forgettest our

affliction and our oppression?

44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth

unto the earth.

44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.

45:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of

Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.> My heart is inditing a good

matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the

king: my tongue [is] the pen of a ready writer.

45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured

into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

45:3 Gird thy sword upon [thy] thigh, O [most] mighty, with thy

glory and thy majesty.

45:4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and

meekness [and] righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach

thee terrible things.

45:5 Thine arrows [are] sharp in the heart of the king's

enemies; [whereby] the people fall under thee.

45:6 Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: the sceptre of

thy kingdom [is] a right sceptre.

45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore

God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above

thy fellows.

45:8 All thy garments [smell] of myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia,

out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

45:9 Kings' daughters [were] among thy honourable women: upon

thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

45:10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear;

forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;

45:11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he [is]

thy Lord; and worship thou him.

45:12 And the daughter of Tyre [shall be there] with a gift;

[even] the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.

45:13 The king's daughter [is] all glorious within: her clothing

[is] of wrought gold.

45:14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of

needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be

brought unto thee.

45:15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they

shall enter into the king's palace.

45:16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou

mayest make princes in all the earth.

45:17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations:

therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

46:1 <To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon

Alamoth.> God [is] our refuge and strength, a very present

help in trouble.

46:2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed,

and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

46:3 [Though] the waters thereof roar [and] be troubled,

[though] the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

46:4 [There is] a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the

city of God, the holy [place] of the tabernacles of the most


46:5 God [is] in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God

shall help her, [and that] right early.

46:6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his

voice, the earth melted.

46:7 The LORD of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our

refuge. Selah.

46:8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he

hath made in the earth.

46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he

breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth

the chariot in the fire.

46:10 Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted

among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

46:11 The LORD of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our

refuge. Selah.

47:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.> O

clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice

of triumph.

47:2 For the LORD most high [is] terrible; [he is] a great King

over all the earth.

47:3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under

our feet.

47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of

Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a


47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our

King, sing praises.

47:7 For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises

with understanding.

47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne

of his holiness.

47:9 The princes of the people are gathered together, [even] the

people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth

[belong] unto God: he is greatly exalted.

48:1 <A Song [and] Psalm for the sons of Korah.> Great [is]

the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God,

[in] the mountain of his holiness.

48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, [is]

mount Zion, [on] the sides of the north, the city of the great


48:3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.

48:4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.

48:5 They saw [it, and] so they marvelled; they were troubled,

[and] hasted away.

48:6 Fear took hold upon them there, [and] pain, as of a woman

in travail.

48:7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.

48:8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD

of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for

ever. Selah.

48:9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst

of thy temple.

48:10 According to thy name, O God, so [is] thy praise unto the

ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.

48:11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be

glad, because of thy judgments.

48:12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers


48:13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye

may tell [it] to the generation following.

48:14 For this God [is] our God for ever and ever: he will be

our guide [even] unto death.

49:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.>

Hear this, all [ye] people; give ear, all [ye] inhabitants of

the world:

49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my

heart [shall be] of understanding.

49:4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark

saying upon the harp.

49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the

iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in

the multitude of their riches;

49:7 None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor

give to God a ransom for him:

49:8 (For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it

ceaseth for ever:)

49:9 That he should still live for ever, [and] not see


49:10 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and

the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

49:11 Their inward thought [is, that] their houses [shall

continue] for ever, [and] their dwelling places to all

generations; they call [their] lands after their own names.

49:12 Nevertheless man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like

the beasts [that] perish.

49:13 This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity

approve their sayings. Selah.

49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on

them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the

morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their


49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave:

for he shall receive me. Selah.

49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory

of his house is increased;

49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory

shall not descend after him.

49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and [men] will

praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall

never see light.

49:20 Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like

the beasts [that] perish.

50:1 <A Psalm of Asaph.> The mighty God, [even] the LORD, hath

spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto

the going down thereof.

50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire

shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round

about him.

50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth,

that he may judge his people.

50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a

covenant with me by sacrifice.

50:6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God

[is] judge himself. Selah.

50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will

testify against thee: I [am] God, [even] thy God.

50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt

offerings, [to have been] continually before me.

50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he goats out

of thy folds.

50:10 For every beast of the forest [is] mine, [and] the cattle

upon a thousand hills.

50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts

of the field [are] mine.

50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world

[is] mine, and the fulness thereof.

50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of


50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the

most High:

50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver

thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to

declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant

in thy mouth?

50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words

behind thee.

50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him,

and hast been partaker with adulterers.

50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth


50:20 Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother; thou

slanderest thine own mother's son.

50:21 These [things] hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou

thoughtest that I was altogether [such an one] as thyself:

[but] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine


50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear [you]

in pieces, and [there be] none to deliver.

50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that

ordereth [his] conversation [aright] will I shew the salvation

of God.

51:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the

prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.>

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness:

according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my


51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from

my sin.

51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin [is] ever

before me.

51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done [this]

evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou

speakest, [and] be clear when thou judgest.

51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother

conceive me.

51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the

hidden [part] thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I

shall be whiter than snow.

51:8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which]

thou hast broken may rejoice.

51:9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine


51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right

spirit within me.

51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy

spirit from me.

51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me

[with thy] free spirit.

51:13 [Then] will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners

shall be converted unto thee.

51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my

salvation: [and] my tongue shall sing aloud of thy


51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth

thy praise.

51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give [it]:

thou delightest not in burnt offering.

51:17 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and

a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

51:18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the

walls of Jerusalem.

51:19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of

righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering:

then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

52:1 <To the chief Musician, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David, when

Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David

is come to the house of Ahimelech.> Why boastest thou thyself

in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God [endureth]


52:2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working


52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good; [and] lying rather than to

speak righteousness. Selah.

52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O [thou] deceitful tongue.

52:5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take

thee away, and pluck thee out of [thy] dwelling place, and root

thee out of the land of the living. Selah.

52:6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at


52:7 Lo, [this is] the man [that] made not God his strength; but

trusted in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened

himself in his wickedness.

52:8 But I [am] like a green olive tree in the house of God: I

trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

52:9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done [it]:

and I will wait on thy name; for [it is] good before thy


53:1 <To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, [A Psalm]

of David.> The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God.

Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: [there is]

none that doeth good.

53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to

see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God.

53:3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become

filthy; [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.

53:4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my

people [as] they eat bread: they have not called upon God.

53:5 There were they in great fear, [where] no fear was: for God

hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth [against] thee:

thou hast put [them] to shame, because God hath despised them.

53:6 Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion!

When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall

rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.

54:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, [A Psalm] of

David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David

hide himself with us?> Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge

me by thy strength.

54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

54:3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek

after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.

54:4 Behold, God [is] mine helper: the Lord [is] with them that

uphold my soul.

54:5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy


54:6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name,

O LORD; for [it is] good.

54:7 For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye

hath seen [his desire] upon mine enemies.

55:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, [A Psalm] of

David.> Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself

from my supplication.

55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and

make a noise;

55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the

oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and

in wrath they hate me.

55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death

are fallen upon me.

55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath

overwhelmed me.

55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! [for then]

would I fly away, and be at rest.

55:7 Lo, [then] would I wander far off, [and] remain in the

wilderness. Selah.

55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm [and]


55:9 Destroy, O Lord, [and] divide their tongues: for I have

seen violence and strife in the city.

55:10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof:

mischief also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it.

55:11 Wickedness [is] in the midst thereof: deceit and guile

depart not from her streets.

55:12 For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I

could have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that]

did magnify [himself] against me; then I would have hid myself

from him:

55:13 But [it was] thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine


55:14 We took sweet counsel together, [and] walked unto the

house of God in company.

55:15 Let death seize upon them, [and] let them go down quick

into hell: for wickedness [is] in their dwellings, [and] among


55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save


55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry

aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle [that

was] against me: for there were many with me.

55:19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of

old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear

not God.

55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace

with him: he hath broken his covenant.

55:21 [The words] of his mouth were smoother than butter, but

war [was] in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet

[were] they drawn swords.

55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee:

he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

55:23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of

destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half

their days; but I will trust in thee.

56:1 <To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of

David, when the Philistines took him in Gath.> Be merciful

unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily

oppresseth me.

56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they be]

many that fight against me, O thou most High.

56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust;

I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are]

against me for evil.

56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they

mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in [thine] anger cast down

the people, O God.

56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy

bottle: [are they] not in thy book?

56:9 When I cry [unto thee], then shall mine enemies turn back:

this I know; for God [is] for me.

56:10 In God will I praise [his] word: in the LORD will I praise

[his] word.

56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man

can do unto me.

56:12 Thy vows [are] upon me, O God: I will render praises unto


56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [wilt] not

[thou deliver] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God

in the light of the living?

57:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when

he fled from Saul in the cave.> Be merciful unto me, O God, be

merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the

shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these]

calamities be overpast.

57:2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth

[all things] for me.

57:3 He shall send from heaven, and save me [from] the reproach

of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth

his mercy and his truth.

57:4 My soul [is] among lions: [and] I lie [even among] them

that are set on fire, [even] the sons of men, whose teeth [are]

spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

57:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [let] thy glory

[be] above all the earth.

57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed

down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof

they are fallen [themselves]. Selah.

57:7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing

and give praise.

57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself]

will awake early.

57:9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing

unto thee among the nations.

57:10 For thy mercy [is] great unto the heavens, and thy truth

unto the clouds.

57:11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: [let] thy glory

[be] above all the earth.

58:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David.> Do

ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge

uprightly, O ye sons of men?

58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of

your hands in the earth.

58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as

soon as they be born, speaking lies.

58:4 Their poison [is] like the poison of a serpent: [they are]

like the deaf adder [that] stoppeth her ear;

58:5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming

never so wisely.

58:6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the

great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

58:7 Let them melt away as waters [which] run continually:

[when] he bendeth [his bow to shoot] his arrows, let them be as

cut in pieces.

58:8 As a snail [which] melteth, let [every one of them] pass

away: [like] the untimely birth of a woman, [that] they may not

see the sun.

58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them

away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in [his] wrath.

58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance:

he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily [there is] a reward for

the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

59:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David; when

Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.> Deliver me

from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up

against me.

59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from

bloody men.

59:3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are

gathered against me; not [for] my transgression, nor [for] my

sin, O LORD.

59:4 They run and prepare themselves without [my] fault: awake

to help me, and behold.

59:5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel,

awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked

transgressors. Selah.

59:6 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and

go round about the city.

59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords [are] in

their lips: for who, [say they], doth hear?

59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all

the heathen in derision.

59:9 [Because of] his strength will I wait upon thee: for God

[is] my defence.

59:10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see

[my desire] upon mine enemies.

59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy

power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.

59:12 [For] the sin of their mouth [and] the words of their lips

let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and

lying [which] they speak.

59:13 Consume [them] in wrath, consume [them], that they [may]

not [be]: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the

ends of the earth. Selah.

59:14 And at evening let them return; [and] let them make a

noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

59:15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they

be not satisfied.

59:16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of

thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and

refuge in the day of my trouble.

59:17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God [is] my

defence, [and] the God of my mercy.

60:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth, Michtam of

David, to teach; when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with

Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley

of salt twelve thousand.> O God, thou hast cast us off, thou

hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to

us again.

60:2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it:

heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

60:3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us

to drink the wine of astonishment.

60:4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it

may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

60:5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save [with] thy right

hand, and hear me.

60:6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will

divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

60:7 Gilead [is] mine, and Manasseh [is] mine; Ephraim also [is]

the strength of mine head; Judah [is] my lawgiver;

60:8 Moab [is] my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe:

Philistia, triumph thou because of me.

60:9 Who will bring me [into] the strong city? who will lead me

into Edom?

60:10 [Wilt] not thou, O God, [which] hadst cast us off? and

[thou], O God, [which] didst not go out with our armies?

60:11 Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.

60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that]

shall tread down our enemies.

61:1 <To the chief Musician upon Neginah, [A Psalm] of David.>

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my

heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock [that] is higher than


61:3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, [and] a strong tower

from the enemy.

61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in

the covert of thy wings. Selah.

61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given [me]

the heritage of those that fear thy name.

61:6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life: [and] his years as many


61:7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and

truth, [which] may preserve him.

61:8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may

daily perform my vows.

62:1 <To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.>

Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him [cometh] my salvation.

62:2 He only [is] my rock and my salvation; [he is] my defence;

I shall not be greatly moved.

62:3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall

be slain all of you: as a bowing wall [shall ye be, and as] a

tottering fence.

62:4 They only consult to cast [him] down from his excellency:

they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they

curse inwardly. Selah.

62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is]

from him.

62:6 He only [is] my rock and my salvation: [he is] my defence;

I shall not be moved.

62:7 In God [is] my salvation and my glory: the rock of my

strength, [and] my refuge, [is] in God.

62:8 Trust in him at all times; [ye] people, pour out your heart

before him: God [is] a refuge for us. Selah.

62:9 Surely men of low degree [are] vanity, [and] men of high

degree [are] a lie: to be laid in the balance, they [are]

altogether [lighter] than vanity.

62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery:

if riches increase, set not your heart [upon them].

62:11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power

[belongeth] unto God.

62:12 Also unto thee, O Lord, [belongeth] mercy: for thou

renderest to every man according to his work.

63:1 <A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of

Judah.> O God, thou [art] my God; early will I seek thee: my

soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and

thirsty land, where no water is;

63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so [as] I have seen thee in

the sanctuary.

63:3 Because thy lovingkindness [is] better than life, my lips

shall praise thee.

63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my

hands in thy name.

63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as [with] marrow and fatness;

and my mouth shall praise [thee] with joyful lips:

63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed, [and] meditate on thee in

the [night] watches.

63:7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of

thy wings will I rejoice.

63:8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth


63:9 But those [that] seek my soul, to destroy [it], shall go

into the lower parts of the earth.

63:10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for


63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth

by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall

be stopped.

64:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> Hear my voice,

O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

64:2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the

insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

64:3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, [and] bend [their bows

to shoot] their arrows, [even] bitter words:

64:4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do

they shoot at him, and fear not.

64:5 They encourage themselves [in] an evil matter: they commune

of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

64:6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent

search: both the inward [thought] of every one [of them], and

the heart, [is] deep.

64:7 But God shall shoot at them [with] an arrow; suddenly shall

they be wounded.

64:8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon

themselves: all that see them shall flee away.

64:9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God;

for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

64:10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust

in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

65:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm [and] Song of David.>

Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall

the vow be performed.

65:2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.

65:3 Iniquities prevail against me: [as for] our transgressions,

thou shalt purge them away.

65:4 Blessed [is the man whom] thou choosest, and causest to

approach [unto thee, that] he may dwell in thy courts: we shall

be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, [even] of thy holy


65:5 [By] terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us,

O God of our salvation; [who art] the confidence of all the

ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off [upon] the


65:6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; [being]

girded with power:

65:7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their

waves, and the tumult of the people.

65:8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at

thy tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and

evening to rejoice.

65:9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly

enrichest it with the river of God, [which] is full of water:

thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.

65:10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest

the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou

blessest the springing thereof.

65:11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths

drop fatness.

65:12 They drop [upon] the pastures of the wilderness: and the

little hills rejoice on every side.

65:13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are

covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.

66:1 <To the chief Musician, A Song [or] Psalm.> Make a joyful

noise unto God, all ye lands:

66:2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise


66:3 Say unto God, How terrible [art thou in] thy works! through

the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit

themselves unto thee.

66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee;

they shall sing [to] thy name. Selah.

66:5 Come and see the works of God: [he is] terrible [in his]

doing toward the children of men.

66:6 He turned the sea into dry [land]: they went through the

flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.

66:7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the

nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

66:8 O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his

praise to be heard:

66:9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet

to be moved.

66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as

silver is tried.

66:11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction

upon our loins.

66:12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went

through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into

a wealthy [place].

66:13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay

thee my vows,

66:14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when

I was in trouble.

66:15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with

the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

66:16 Come [and] hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare

what he hath done for my soul.

66:17 I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with

my tongue.

66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear


66:19 [But] verily God hath heard [me]; he hath attended to the

voice of my prayer.

66:20 Blessed [be] God, which hath not turned away my prayer,

nor his mercy from me.

67:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm [or] Song.>

God be merciful unto us, and bless us; [and] cause his face to

shine upon us; Selah.

67:2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health

among all nations.

67:3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people

praise thee.

67:4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt

judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon

earth. Selah.

67:5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people

praise thee.

67:6 [Then] shall the earth yield her increase; [and] God,

[even] our own God, shall bless us.

67:7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall

fear him.

68:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm [or] Song of David.> Let

God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that

hate him flee before him.

68:2 As smoke is driven away, [so] drive [them] away: as wax

melteth before the fire, [so] let the wicked perish at the

presence of God.

68:3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God:

yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

68:4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that

rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before


68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, [is]

God in his holy habitation.

68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those

which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry


68:7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou

didst march through the wilderness; Selah:

68:8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence

of God: [even] Sinai itself [was moved] at the presence of God,

the God of Israel.

68:9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou

didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.

68:10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast

prepared of thy goodness for the poor.

68:11 The Lord gave the word: great [was] the company of those

that published [it].

68:12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at

home divided the spoil.

68:13 Though ye have lien among the pots, [yet shall ye be as]

the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with

yellow gold.

68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was [white] as

snow in Salmon.

68:15 The hill of God [is as] the hill of Bashan; an high hill

[as] the hill of Bashan.

68:16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? [this is] the hill [which] God

desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell [in it] for


68:17 The chariots of God [are] twenty thousand, [even]

thousands of angels: the Lord [is] among them, [as in] Sinai,

in the holy [place].

68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity

captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, [for] the

rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell [among them].

68:19 Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with

benefits, even] the God of our salvation. Selah.

68:20 [He that is] our God [is] the God of salvation; and unto

GOD the Lord [belong] the issues from death.

68:21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, [and] the

hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.

68:22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will

bring [my people] again from the depths of the sea:

68:23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of [thine]

enemies, [and] the tongue of thy dogs in the same.

68:24 They have seen thy goings, O God; [even] the goings of my

God, my King, in the sanctuary.

68:25 The singers went before, the players on instruments

[followed] after; among [them were] the damsels playing with


68:26 Bless ye God in the congregations, [even] the Lord, from

the fountain of Israel.

68:27 There [is] little Benjamin [with] their ruler, the princes

of Judah [and] their council, the princes of Zebulun, [and] the

princes of Naphtali.

68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God,

that which thou hast wrought for us.

68:29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring

presents unto thee.

68:30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the

bulls, with the calves of the people, [till every one] submit

himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people [that]

delight in war.

68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon

stretch out her hands unto God.

68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises

unto the Lord; Selah:

68:33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, [which

were] of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, [and that] a

mighty voice.

68:34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency [is] over

Israel, and his strength [is] in the clouds.

68:35 O God, [thou art] terrible out of thy holy places: the God

of Israel [is] he that giveth strength and power unto [his]

people. Blessed [be] God.

69:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, [A Psalm] of

David.> Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto [my]


69:2 I sink in deep mire, where [there is] no standing: I am

come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.

69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail

while I wait for my God.

69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs

of mine head: they that would destroy me, [being] mine enemies

wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored [that] which I took not


69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid

from thee.

69:6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be

ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded

for my sake, O God of Israel.

69:7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath

covered my face.

69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto

my mother's children.

69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the

reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

69:10 When I wept, [and chastened] my soul with fasting, that

was to my reproach.

69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb

to them.

69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I [was]

the song of the drunkards.

69:13 But as for me, my prayer [is] unto thee, O LORD, [in] an

acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me,

in the truth of thy salvation.

69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be

delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

69:15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep

swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness [is] good: turn

unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in

trouble: hear me speedily.

69:18 Draw nigh unto my soul, [and] redeem it: deliver me

because of mine enemies.

69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my

dishonour: mine adversaries [are] all before thee.

69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness:

and I looked [for some] to take pity, but [there was] none; and

for comforters, but I found none.

69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they

gave me vinegar to drink.

69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and [that

which should have been] for [their] welfare, [let it become] a


69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make

their loins continually to shake.

69:24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful

anger take hold of them.

69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; [and] let none dwell in

their tents.

69:26 For they persecute [him] whom thou hast smitten; and they

talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.

69:27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come

into thy righteousness.

69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not

be written with the righteous.

69:29 But I [am] poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God,

set me up on high.

69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will

magnify him with thanksgiving.

69:31 [This] also shall please the LORD better than an ox [or]

bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

69:32 The humble shall see [this, and] be glad: and your heart

shall live that seek God.

69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his


69:34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every

thing that moveth therein.

69:35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of

Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they

that love his name shall dwell therein.

70:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David, to bring to

remembrance.> [Make haste], O God, to deliver me; make haste

to help me, O LORD.

70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul:

let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire

my hurt.

70:3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that

say, Aha, aha.

70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee:

and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be


70:5 But I [am] poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou

[art] my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.

71:1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to


71:2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape:

incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

71:3 Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually

resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou [art]

my rock and my fortress.

71:4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of

the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

71:5 For thou [art] my hope, O Lord GOD: [thou art] my trust

from my youth.

71:6 By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he

that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise [shall be]

continually of thee.

71:7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou [art] my strong


71:8 Let my mouth be filled [with] thy praise [and with] thy

honour all the day.

71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when

my strength faileth.

71:10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait

for my soul take counsel together,

71:11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for

[there is] none to deliver [him].

71:12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my


71:13 Let them be confounded [and] consumed that are adversaries

to my soul; let them be covered [with] reproach and dishonour

that seek my hurt.

71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more

and more.

71:15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness [and] thy

salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers [thereof].

71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make

mention of thy righteousness, [even] of thine only.

71:17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto

have I declared thy wondrous works.

71:18 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me

not; until I have shewed thy strength unto [this] generation,

[and] thy power to every one [that] is to come.

71:19 Thy righteousness also, O God, [is] very high, who hast

done great things: O God, who [is] like unto thee!

71:20 [Thou], which hast shewed me great and sore troubles,

shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the

depths of the earth.

71:21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every


71:22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, [even] thy

truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou

Holy One of Israel.

71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and

my soul, which thou hast redeemed.

71:24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day

long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame,

that seek my hurt.

72:1 <[A Psalm] for Solomon.> Give the king thy judgments, O

God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.

72:2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor

with judgment.

72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the

little hills, by righteousness.

72:4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the

children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

72:5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure,

throughout all generations.

72:6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as

showers [that] water the earth.

72:7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of

peace so long as the moon endureth.

72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the

river unto the ends of the earth.

72:9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and

his enemies shall lick the dust.

72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring

presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations

shall serve him.

72:12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor

also, and [him] that hath no helper.

72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the

souls of the needy.

72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and

precious shall their blood be in his sight.

72:15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold

of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; [and]

daily shall he be praised.

72:16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the

top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like

Lebanon: and [they] of the city shall flourish like grass of

the earth.

72:17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be

continued as long as the sun: and [men] shall be blessed in

him: all nations shall call him blessed.

72:18 Blessed [be] the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only

doeth wondrous things.

72:19 And blessed [be] his glorious name for ever: and let the

whole earth be filled [with] his glory; Amen, and Amen.

72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

73:1 <A Psalm of Asaph.> Truly God [is] good to Israel, [even]

to such as are of a clean heart.

73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well

nigh slipped.

73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, [when] I saw the

prosperity of the wicked.

73:4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength

[is] firm.

73:5 They [are] not in trouble [as other] men; neither are they

plagued like [other] men.

73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence

covereth them [as] a garment.

73:7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than

heart could wish.

73:8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly [concerning]

oppression: they speak loftily.

73:9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue

walketh through the earth.

73:10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full

[cup] are wrung out to them.

73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in

the most High?

73:12 Behold, these [are] the ungodly, who prosper in the world;

they increase [in] riches.

73:13 Verily I have cleansed my heart [in] vain, and washed my

hands in innocency.

73:14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened

every morning.

73:15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend

[against] the generation of thy children.

73:16 When I thought to know this, it [was] too painful for me;

73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; [then] understood

I their end.

73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou

castedst them down into destruction.

73:19 How are they [brought] into desolation, as in a moment!

they are utterly consumed with terrors.

73:20 As a dream when [one] awaketh; [so], O Lord, when thou

awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

73:21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.

73:22 So foolish [was] I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast

before thee.

73:23 Nevertheless I [am] continually with thee: thou hast

holden [me] by my right hand.

73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward

receive me [to] glory.

73:25 Whom have I in heaven [but thee]? and [there is] none upon

earth [that] I desire beside thee.

73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: [but] God [is] the strength

of my heart, and my portion for ever.

73:27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou

hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.

73:28 But [it is] good for me to draw near to God: I have put my

trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

74:1 <Maschil of Asaph.> O God, why hast thou cast [us] off

for ever? [why] doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy


74:2 Remember thy congregation, [which] thou hast purchased of

old; the rod of thine inheritance, [which] thou hast redeemed;

this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.

74:3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; [even] all

[that] the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.

74:4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they

set up their ensigns [for] signs.

74:5 [A man] was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon

the thick trees.

74:6 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once

with axes and hammers.

74:7 They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled

[by casting down] the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.

74:8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together:

they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.

74:9 We see not our signs: [there is] no more any prophet:

neither [is there] among us any that knoweth how long.

74:10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the

enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?

74:11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck

[it] out of thy bosom.

74:12 For God [is] my King of old, working salvation in the

midst of the earth.

74:13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest

the heads of the dragons in the waters.

74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and]

gavest him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the


74:15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst

up mighty rivers.

74:16 The day [is] thine, the night also [is] thine: thou hast

prepared the light and the sun.

74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made

summer and winter.

74:18 Remember this, [that] the enemy hath reproached, O LORD,

and [that] the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.

74:19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the

multitude [of the wicked]: forget not the congregation of thy

poor for ever.

74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the

earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.

74:21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and

needy praise thy name.

74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the

foolish man reproacheth thee daily.

74:23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those

that rise up against thee increaseth continually.

75:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm [or] Song of

Asaph.> Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, [unto thee] do we

give thanks: for [that] thy name is near thy wondrous works


75:2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge


75:3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I

bear up the pillars of it. Selah.

75:4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the

wicked, Lift not up the horn:

75:5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak [not with] a stiff


75:6 For promotion [cometh] neither from the east, nor from the

west, nor from the south.

75:7 But God [is] the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up


75:8 For in the hand of the LORD [there is] a cup, and the wine

is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same:

but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring

[them] out, [and] drink [them].

75:9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God

of Jacob.

75:10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; [but] the

horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

76:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm [or] Song of

Asaph.> In Judah [is] God known: his name [is] great in


76:2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in


76:3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the

sword, and the battle. Selah.

76:4 Thou [art] more glorious [and] excellent than the mountains

of prey.

76:5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep:

and none of the men of might have found their hands.

76:6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse

are cast into a dead sleep.

76:7 Thou, [even] thou, [art] to be feared: and who may stand in

thy sight when once thou art angry?

76:8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the

earth feared, and was still,

76:9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the

earth. Selah.

76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder

of wrath shalt thou restrain.

76:11 Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round

about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.

76:12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: [he is] terrible

to the kings of the earth.

77:1 <To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph.> I

cried unto God with my voice, [even] unto God with my voice;

and he gave ear unto me.

77:2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in

the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.

77:3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my

spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

77:4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I

cannot speak.

77:5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient


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


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 <Maschil of Asaph.> 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


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


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


78:23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened

the doors of heaven,

78:24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given

them of the corn of heaven.

78:25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.

78:26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his

power he brought in the south wind.

78:27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered

fowls like as the sand of the sea:

78:28 And he let [it] fall in the midst of their camp, round

about their habitations.

78:29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them

their own desire;

78:30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their

meat [was] yet in their mouths,

78:31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of

them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel.

78:32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his

wondrous works.

78:33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their

years in trouble.

78:34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned

and enquired early after God.

78:35 And they remembered that God [was] their rock, and the

high God their redeemer.

78:36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and

they lied unto him with their tongues.

78:37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they

stedfast in his covenant.

78:38 But he, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their]

iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he

his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.

78:39 For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that

passeth away, and cometh not again.

78:40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, [and]

grieve him in the desert!

78:41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the

Holy One of Israel.

78:42 They remembered not his hand, [nor] the day when he

delivered them from the enemy.

78:43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in

the field of Zoan:

78:44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods,

that they could not drink.

78:45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured

them; and frogs, which destroyed them.

78:46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and

their labour unto the locust.

78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore

trees with frost.

78:48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks

to hot thunderbolts.

78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and

indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels [among them].

78:50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from

death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

78:51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of [their]

strength in the tabernacles of Ham:

78:52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided

them in the wilderness like a flock.

78:53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but

the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

78:54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even

to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased.

78:55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them

an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell

in their tents.

78:56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept

not his testimonies:

78:57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their

fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

78:58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and

moved him to jealousy with their graven images.

78:59 When God heard [this], he was wroth, and greatly abhorred


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


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


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


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 <A Psalm of Asaph.> O God, the heathen are come into

thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have

laid Jerusalem on heaps.

79:2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be]

meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto

the beasts of the earth.

79:3 Their blood have they shed like water round about

Jerusalem; and [there was] none to bury [them].

79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and

derision to them that are round about us.

79:5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy

jealousy burn like fire?

79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known

thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.

79:7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling


79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender

mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.

79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name:

and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.

79:10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] their God?

let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] the

revenging of the blood of thy servants [which is] shed.

79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee;

according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those

that are appointed to die;

79:12 And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom

their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.

79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee

thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all


80:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of

Asaph.> Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest

Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest [between] the

cherubims, shine forth.

80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy

strength, and come [and] save us.

80:3 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we

shall be saved.

80:4 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against

the prayer of thy people?

80:5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them

tears to drink in great measure.

80:6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our

enemies laugh among themselves.

80:7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine;

and we shall be saved.

80:8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out

the heathen, and planted it.

80:9 Thou preparedst [room] before it, and didst cause it to

take deep root, and it filled the land.

80:10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the

boughs thereof [were like] the goodly cedars.

80:11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches

unto the river.

80:12 Why hast thou [then] broken down her hedges, so that all

they which pass by the way do pluck her?

80:13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast

of the field doth devour it.

80:14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from

heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;

80:15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and

the branch [that] thou madest strong for thyself.

80:16 [It is] burned with fire, [it is] cut down: they perish at

the rebuke of thy countenance.

80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the

son of man [whom] thou madest strong for thyself.

80:18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will

call upon thy name.

80:19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to

shine; and we shall be saved.

81:1 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, [A Psalm] of Asaph.>

Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the

God of Jacob.

81:2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant

harp with the psaltery.

81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed,

on our solemn feast day.

81:4 For this [was] a statute for Israel, [and] a law of the God

of Jacob.

81:5 This he ordained in Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went

out through the land of Egypt: [where] I heard a language

[that] I understood not.

81:6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were

delivered from the pots.

81:7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered

thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the

waters of Meribah. Selah.

81:8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel,

if thou wilt hearken unto me;

81:9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou

worship any strange god.

81:10 I [am] the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the

land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel

would none of me.

81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: [and] they

walked in their own counsels.

81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, [and] Israel had

walked in my ways!

81:14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my

hand against their adversaries.

81:15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves

unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.

81:16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat:

and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

82:1 <A Psalm of Asaph.> 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


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


82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all


83:1 <A Song [or] Psalm of Asaph.> 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


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


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,


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 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons

of Korah.> How amiable [are] thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!

84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the

LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a

nest for herself, where she may lay her young, [even] thine

altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

84:4 Blessed [are] they that dwell in thy house: they will be

still praising thee. Selah.

84:5 Blessed [is] the man whose strength [is] in thee; in whose

heart [are] the ways [of them].

84:6 [Who] passing through the valley of Baca make it a well;

the rain also filleth the pools.

84:7 They go from strength to strength, [every one of them] in

Zion appeareth before God.

84:8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of

Jacob. Selah.

84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine


84:10 For a day in thy courts [is] better than a thousand. I had

rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in

the tents of wickedness.

84:11 For the LORD God [is] a sun and shield: the LORD will give

grace and glory: no good [thing] will he withhold from them

that walk uprightly.

84:12 O LORD of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in


85:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.>

LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast

brought back the captivity of Jacob.

85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast

covered all their sin. Selah.

85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned

[thyself] from the fierceness of thine anger.

85:4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger

toward us to cease.

85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out

thine anger to all generations?

85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice

in thee?

85:7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak

peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn

again to folly.

85:9 Surely his salvation [is] nigh them that fear him; that

glory may dwell in our land.

85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace

have kissed [each other].

85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness

shall look down from heaven.

85:12 Yea, the LORD shall give [that which is] good; and our

land shall yield her increase.

85:13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set [us] in

the way of his steps.

86:1 <A Prayer of David.> Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me:

for I [am] poor and needy.

86:2 Preserve my soul; for I [am] holy: O thou my God, save thy

servant that trusteth in thee.

86:3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.

86:4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do

I lift up my soul.

86:5 For thou, Lord, [art] good, and ready to forgive; and

plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

86:6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice

of my supplications.

86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou

wilt answer me.

86:8 Among the gods [there is] none like unto thee, O Lord;

neither [are there any works] like unto thy works.

86:9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship

before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.

86:10 For thou [art] great, and doest wondrous things: thou

[art] God alone.

86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite

my heart to fear thy name.

86:12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and

I will glorify thy name for evermore.

86:13 For great [is] thy mercy toward me: and thou hast

delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

86:14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies

of violent [men] have sought after my soul; and have not set

thee before them.

86:15 But thou, O Lord, [art] a God full of compassion, and

gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

86:16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength

unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

86:17 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see

[it], and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and

comforted me.

87:1 <A Psalm [or] Song for the sons of Korah.> 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 <A Song [or] Psalm for the sons of Korah, to the chief

Musician upon Mahalath Leannoth, Maschil of Heman the

Ezrahite.> 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


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


88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the


88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted [me]

with all thy waves. Selah.

88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast

made me an abomination unto them: [I am] shut up, and I cannot

come forth.

88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have

called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto


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


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 <Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite.> I will sing of the

mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known

thy faithfulness to all generations.

89:2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy

faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.

89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto

David my servant,

89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne

to all generations. Selah.

89:5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy

faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.

89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? [who]

among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?

89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,

and to be had in reverence of all [them that are] about him.

89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who [is] a strong LORD like unto thee?

or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof

arise, thou stillest them.

89:10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain;

thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

89:11 The heavens [are] thine, the earth also [is] thine: [as

for] the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

89:12 The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and

Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.

89:13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, [and] high is

thy right hand.

89:14 Justice and judgment [are] the habitation of thy throne:

mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

89:15 Blessed [is] the people that know the joyful sound: they

shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.

89:16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy

righteousness shall they be exalted.

89:17 For thou [art] the glory of their strength: and in thy

favour our horn shall be exalted.

89:18 For the LORD [is] our defence; and the Holy One of Israel

[is] our king.

89:19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I

have laid help upon [one that is] mighty; I have exalted [one]

chosen out of the people.

89:20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I

anointed him:

89:21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also

shall strengthen him.

89:22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of

wickedness afflict him.

89:23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague

them that hate him.

89:24 But my faithfulness and my mercy [shall be] with him: and

in my name shall his horn be exalted.

89:25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in

the rivers.

89:26 He shall cry unto me, Thou [art] my father, my God, and

the rock of my salvation.

89:27 Also I will make him [my] firstborn, higher than the kings

of the earth.

89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant

shall stand fast with him.

89:29 His seed also will I make [to endure] for ever, and his

throne as the days of heaven.

89:30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my


89:31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

89:32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and

their iniquity with stripes.

89:33 Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take

from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is

gone out of my lips.

89:35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto


89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun

before me.

89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and [as] a

faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

89:38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth

with thine anointed.

89:39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast

profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.

89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought

his strong holds to ruin.

89:41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to

his neighbours.

89:42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou

hast made all his enemies to rejoice.

89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not

made him to stand in the battle.

89:44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne

down to the ground.

89:45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast

covered him with shame. Selah.

89:46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy

wrath burn like fire?

89:47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made

all men in vain?

89:48 What man [is he that] liveth, and shall not see death?

shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.

89:49 Lord, where [are] thy former lovingkindnesses, [which]

thou swarest unto David in thy truth?

89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; [how] I do

bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty people;

89:51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD; wherewith

they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

89:52 Blessed [be] the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

90:1 <A Prayer of Moses the man of God.> Lord, thou hast been

our dwelling place in all generations.

90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst

formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to

everlasting, thou [art] God.

90:3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye

children of men.

90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday

when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.

90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are [as] a

sleep: in the morning [they are] like grass [which] groweth up.

90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the

evening it is cut down, and withereth.

90:7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we


90:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret [sins]

in the light of thy countenance.

90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our

years as a tale [that is told].

90:10 The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and

if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is]

their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and

we fly away.

90:11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to

thy fear, [so is] thy wrath.

90:12 So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our]

hearts unto wisdom.

90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee

concerning thy servants.

90:14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and

be glad all our days.

90:15 Make us glad according to the days [wherein] thou hast

afflicted us, [and] the years [wherein] we have seen evil.

90:16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto

their children.

90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and

establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of

our hands establish thou it.

91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall

abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

91:2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress:

my God; in him will I trust.

91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,

[and] from the noisome pestilence.

91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings

shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler.

91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for

the arrow [that] flieth by day;

91:6 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor]

for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday.

91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy

right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee.

91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward

of the wicked.

91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge,

[even] the most High, thy habitation;

91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague

come nigh thy dwelling.

91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep

thee in all thy ways.

91:12 They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash

thy foot against a stone.

91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion

and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I

deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my


91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be]

with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my


92:1 <A Psalm [or] Song for the sabbath day.> [It is a] good

[thing] to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto

thy name, O most High:

92:2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy

faithfulness every night,

92:3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery;

upon the harp with a solemn sound.

92:4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will

triumph in the works of thy hands.

92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! [and] thy thoughts are

very deep.

92:6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand


92:7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the

workers of iniquity do flourish; [it is] that they shall be

destroyed for ever:

92:8 But thou, LORD, [art most] high for evermore.

92:9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies

shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] an

unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

92:11 Mine eye also shall see [my desire] on mine enemies, [and]

mine ears shall hear [my desire] of the wicked that rise up

against me.

92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall

grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall

flourish in the courts of our God.

92:14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall

be fat and flourishing;

92:15 To shew that the LORD [is] upright: [he is] my rock, and

[there is] no unrighteousness in him.

93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is

clothed with strength, [wherewith] he hath girded himself: the

world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

93:2 Thy throne [is] established of old: thou [art] from


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


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


94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the


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]


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


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


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


95:4 In his hand [are] the deep places of the earth: the

strength of the hills [is] his also.

95:5 The sea [is] his, and he made it: and his hands formed the

dry [land].

95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before

the LORD our maker.

95:7 For he [is] our God; and we [are] the people of his

pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his


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


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


97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and


97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at

the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

97:6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people

see his glory.

97:7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast

themselves of idols: worship him, all [ye] gods.

97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah

rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.

97:9 For thou, LORD, [art] high above all the earth: thou art

exalted far above all gods.

97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls

of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the


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 <A Psalm.> 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


98:9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with

righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with


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


99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is]


99:4 The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost

establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in


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


99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for

the LORD our God [is] holy.

100:1 <A Psalm of praise.> Make a joyful noise unto the LORD,

all ye lands.

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 name.

100:5 For the LORD [is] good; his mercy [is] everlasting; and

his truth [endureth] to all generations.

101:1 <A Psalm of David.> 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


101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the

work of them that turn aside; [it] shall not cleave to me.

101:4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a

wicked [person].

101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut

off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I


101:6 Mine eyes [shall be] upon the faithful of the land, that

they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he

shall serve me.

101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he

that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I

may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

102:1 <A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and

poureth out his complaint before the LORD.> Hear my prayer, O

LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.

102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day [when] I am in

trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day [when] I call

answer me speedily.

102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are

burned as an hearth.

102:4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I

forget to eat my bread.

102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to

my skin.

102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of

the desert.

102:7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; [and] they that are

mad against me are sworn against me.

102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink

with weeping,

102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast

lifted me up, and cast me down.

102:11 My days [are] like a shadow that declineth; and I am

withered like grass.

102:12 But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy

remembrance unto all generations.

102:13 Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the

time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour

the dust thereof.

102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all

the kings of the earth thy glory.

102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his


102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not

despise their prayer.

102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the

people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.

102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary;

from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;

102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that

are appointed to death;

102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise

in Jerusalem;

102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms,

to serve the LORD.

102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.

102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my

days: thy years [are] throughout all generations.

102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and

the heavens [are] the work of thy hands.

102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of

them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou

change them, and they shall be changed:

102:27 But thou [art] the same, and thy years shall have no end.

102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their

seed shall be established before thee.

103:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all

that is within me, [bless] his holy name.

103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his


103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy


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]


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


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


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


104:15 And wine [that] maketh glad the heart of man, [and] oil

to make [his] face to shine, and bread [which] strengtheneth

man's heart.

104:16 The trees of the LORD are full [of sap]; the cedars of

Lebanon, which he hath planted;

104:17 Where the birds make their nests: [as for] the stork, the

fir trees [are] her house.

104:18 The high hills [are] a refuge for the wild goats; [and]

the rocks for the conies.

104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his

going down.

104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the

beasts of the forest do creep [forth].

104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their

meat from God.

104:22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay

them down in their dens.

104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the


104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou

made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

104:25 [So is] this great and wide sea, wherein [are] things

creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

104:26 There go the ships: [there is] that leviathan, [whom]

thou hast made to play therein.

104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give [them]

their meat in due season.

104:28 [That] thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine

hand, they are filled with good.

104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away

their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou

renewest the face of the earth.

104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD

shall rejoice in his works.

104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth

the hills, and they smoke.

104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing

praise to my God while I have my being.

104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in

the LORD.

104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the

wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye

the LORD.

105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make

known his deeds among the people.

105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his

wondrous works.

105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice

that seek the LORD.

105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his

wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his


105:7 He [is] the LORD our God: his judgments [are] in all the


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


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


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


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


105:27 They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land

of Ham.

105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not

against his word.

105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the

chambers of their kings.

105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, [and]

lice in all their coasts.

105:32 He gave them hail for rain, [and] flaming fire in their


105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake

the trees of their coasts.

105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and

that without number,

105:35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured

the fruit of their ground.

105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief

of all their strength.

105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and

[there was] not one feeble [person] among their tribes.

105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them

fell upon them.

105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light

in the night.

105:40 [The people] asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied

them with the bread of heaven.

105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran

in the dry places [like] a river.

105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, [and] Abraham his


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


106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed

iniquity, we have done wickedly.

106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they

remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked [him]

at the sea, [even] at the Red sea.

106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he

might make his mighty power to be known.

106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he

led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated [them],

and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one

of them left.

106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his


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


106:20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an

ox that eateth grass.

106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great

things in Egypt;

106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [and] terrible things

by the Red sea.

106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not

Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away

his wrath, lest he should destroy [them].

106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not

his word:

106:25 But murmured in their tents, [and] hearkened not unto the

voice of the LORD.

106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to

overthrow them in the wilderness:

106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to

scatter them in the lands.

106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the

sacrifices of the dead.

106:29 Thus they provoked [him] to anger with their inventions:

and the plague brake in upon them.

106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and [so]

the plague was stayed.

106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all

generations for evermore.

106:32 They angered [him] also at the waters of strife, so that

it went ill with Moses for their sakes:

106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake

unadvisedly with his lips.

106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the

LORD commanded them:

106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their


106:36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto


106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto


106:38 And shed innocent blood, [even] the blood of their sons

and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of

Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a

whoring with their own inventions.

106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his

people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they

that hated them ruled over them.

106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought

into subjection under their hand.

106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked [him]

with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard

their cry:

106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented

according to the multitude of his mercies.

106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried

them captives.

106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the

heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, [and] to triumph in

thy praise.

106:48 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to

everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the


107:1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for [he is] good: for his

mercy [endureth] for ever.

107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say [so], whom he hath

redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

107:3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and

from the west, from the north, and from the south.

107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they

found no city to dwell in.

107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he

delivered them out of their distresses.

107:7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go

to a city of habitation.

107:8 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness,

and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry

soul with goodness.

107:10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,

[being] bound in affliction and iron;

107:11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and

contemned the counsel of the most High:

107:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they

fell down, and [there was] none to help.

107:13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he

saved them out of their distresses.

107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,

and brake their bands in sunder.

107:15 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness,

and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars

of iron in sunder.

107:17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of

their iniquities, are afflicted.

107:18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw

near unto the gates of death.

107:19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he

saveth them out of their distresses.

107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered [them]

from their destructions.

107:21 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness,

and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving,

and declare his works with rejoicing.

107:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business

in great waters;

107:24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the


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


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 <A Song [or] Psalm of David.> O God, my heart is fixed;

I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself] will awake early.

108:3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will

sing praises unto thee among the nations.

108:4 For thy mercy [is] great above the heavens: and thy truth

[reacheth] unto the clouds.

108:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory

above all the earth;

108:6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save [with] thy right

hand, and answer me.

108:7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will

divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

108:8 Gilead [is] mine; Manasseh [is] mine; Ephraim also [is]

the strength of mine head; Judah [is] my lawgiver;

108:9 Moab [is] my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe;

over Philistia will I triumph.

108:10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me

into Edom?

108:11 [Wilt] not [thou], O God, [who] hast cast us off? and

wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

108:12 Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.

108:13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that]

shall tread down our enemies.

109:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> 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


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


109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his

right hand.

109:7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his

prayer become sin.

109:8 Let his days be few; [and] let another take his office.

109:9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

109:10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let

them seek [their bread] also out of their desolate places.

109:11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the

strangers spoil his labour.

109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let

there be any to favour his fatherless children.

109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; [and] in the generation

following let their name be blotted out.

109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the

LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut

off the memory of them from the earth.

109:16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but

persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the

broken in heart.

109:17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he

delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

109:18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his

garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like

oil into his bones.

109:19 Let it be unto him as the garment [which] covereth him,

and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

109:20 [Let] this [be] the reward of mine adversaries from the

LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake:

because thy mercy [is] good, deliver thou me.

109:22 For I [am] poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within


109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed

up and down as the locust.

109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth

of fatness.

109:25 I became also a reproach unto them: [when] they looked

upon me they shaked their heads.

109:26 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:

109:27 That they may know that this [is] thy hand; [that] thou,

LORD, hast done it.

109:28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them

be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.

109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them

cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.

109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will

praise him among the multitude.

109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save

[him] from those that condemn his soul.

110:1 <A Psalm of David.> 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 with


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


113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD,

praise the name of the LORD.

113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and

for evermore.

113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same

the LORD'S name [is] to be praised.

113:4 The LORD [is] high above all nations, [and] his glory

above the heavens.

113:5 Who [is] like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,

113:6 Who humbleth [himself] to behold [the things that are] in

heaven, and in the earth!

113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth the

needy out of the dunghill;

113:8 That he may set [him] with princes, [even] with the

princes of his people.

113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, [and to be] a

joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a

people of strange language;

114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion.

114:3 The sea saw [it], and fled: Jordan was driven back.

114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, [and] the little hills

like lambs.

114:5 What [ailed] thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou

Jordan, [that] thou wast driven back?

114:6 Ye mountains, [that] ye skipped like rams; [and] ye little

hills, like lambs?

114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the

presence of the God of Jacob;

114:8 Which turned the rock [into] a standing water, the flint

into a fountain of waters.

115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give

glory, for thy mercy, [and] for thy truth's sake.

115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] now their


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


115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but

they see not:

115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but

they smell not:

115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but

they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

115:8 They that make them are like unto them; [so is] every one

that trusteth in them.

115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he [is] their help and

their shield.

115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he [is] their help

and their shield.

115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he [is] their

help and their shield.

115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless [us]; he

will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of


115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, [both] small and


115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your


115:15 Ye [are] blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.

115:16 The heaven, [even] the heavens, [are] the LORD'S: but the

earth hath he given to the children of men.

115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down

into silence.

115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for

evermore. Praise the LORD.

116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and] my


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]


116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he

helped me.

116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt

bountifully with thee.

116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from

tears, [and] my feet from falling.

116:9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly


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


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


117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the

truth of the LORD [endureth] for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: because his

mercy [endureth] for ever.

118:2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.

118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy [endureth]

for ever.

118:4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy

[endureth] for ever.

118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me,

[and set me] in a large place.

118:6 The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do

unto me?

118:7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore

shall I see [my desire] upon them that hate me.

118:8 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence

in man.

118:9 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence

in princes.

118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the

LORD will I destroy them.

118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about:

but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.

118:12 They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as

the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy


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


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


118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me

over unto death.

118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into

them, [and] I will praise the LORD:

118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall


118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art

become my salvation.

118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head

[stone] of the corner.

118:23 This is the LORD'S doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes.

118:24 This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will

rejoice and be glad in it.

118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee,

send now prosperity.

118:26 Blessed [be] he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we

have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

118:27 God [is] the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the

sacrifice with cords, [even] unto the horns of the altar.

118:28 Thou [art] my God, and I will praise thee: [thou art] my

God, I will exalt thee.

118:29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his

mercy [endureth] for ever.

119:1 ALEPH. Blessed [are] the undefiled in the way, who walk in

the law of the LORD.

119:2 Blessed [are] they that keep his testimonies, [and that]

seek him with the whole heart.

119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

119:4 Thou hast commanded [us] to keep thy precepts diligently.

119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all

thy commandments.

119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall

have learned thy righteous judgments.

119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

119:9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by

taking heed [thereto] according to thy word.

119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not

wander from thy commandments.

119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin

against thee.

119:12 Blessed [art] thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.

119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy


119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as [much

as] in all riches.

119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto

thy ways.

119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget

thy word.

119:17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, [that] I may

live, and keep thy word.

119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things

out of thy law.

119:19 I [am] a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments

from me.

119:20 My soul breaketh for the longing [that it hath] unto thy

judgments at all times.

119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud [that are] cursed, which do

err from thy commandments.

119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy


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 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me

according to thy word.

119:26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me

thy statutes.

119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I

talk of thy wondrous works.

119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me

according unto thy word.

119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law


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


119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt

enlarge my heart.

119:33 HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I

shall keep it [unto] the end.

119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I

shall observe it with [my] whole heart.

119:35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for

therein do I delight.

119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to


119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; [and] quicken

thou me in thy way.

119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who [is devoted] to

thy fear.

119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments

[are] good.

119:40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in

thy righteousness.

119:41 VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, [even]

thy salvation, according to thy word.

119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth

me: for I trust in thy word.

119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth;

for I have hoped in thy judgments.

119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.

119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.

119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and

will not be ashamed.

119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I

have loved.

119:48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which

I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.

119:49 ZAIN. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou

hast caused me to hope.

119:50 This [is] my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath

quickened me.

119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: [yet] have I

not declined from thy law.

119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have

comforted myself.

119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that

forsake thy law.

119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my


119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and

have kept thy law.

119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.

119:57 CHETH. [Thou art] my portion, O LORD: I have said that I

would keep thy words.

119:58 I intreated thy favour with [my] whole heart: be merciful

unto me according to thy word.

119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy


119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: [but] I have not

forgotten thy law.

119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because

of thy righteous judgments.

119:63 I [am] a companion of all [them] that fear thee, and of

them that keep thy precepts.

119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy


119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD,

according unto thy word.

119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed

thy commandments.

119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept

thy word.

119:68 Thou [art] good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.

119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: [but] I will keep

thy precepts with [my] whole heart.

119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; [but] I delight in thy


119:71 [It is] good for me that I have been afflicted; that I

might learn thy statutes.

119:72 The law of thy mouth [is] better unto me than thousands

of gold and silver.

119:73 JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me

understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me;

because I have hoped in thy word.

119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments [are] right, and

[that] thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my

comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for

thy law [is] my delight.

119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with

me without a cause: [but] I will meditate in thy precepts.

119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that

have known thy testimonies.

119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not


119:81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: [but] I hope in

thy word.

119:82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou

comfort me?

119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; [yet] do I

not forget thy statutes.

119:84 How many [are] the days of thy servant? when wilt thou

execute judgment on them that persecute me?

119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which [are] not after

thy law.

119:86 All thy commandments [are] faithful: they persecute me

wrongfully; help thou me.

119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not

thy precepts.

119:88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the

testimony of thy mouth.

119:89 LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

119:90 Thy faithfulness [is] unto all generations: thou hast

established the earth, and it abideth.

119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for

all [are] thy servants.

119:92 Unless thy law [had been] my delights, I should then have

perished in mine affliction.

119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast

quickened me.

119:94 I [am] thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.

119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: [but] I will

consider thy testimonies.

119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: [but] thy

commandment [is] exceeding broad.

119:97 MEM. O how love I thy law! it [is] my meditation all the


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


119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I

might keep thy word.

119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast

taught me.

119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! [yea, sweeter]

than honey to my mouth!

119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I

hate every false way.

119:105 NUN. Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto

my path.

119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform [it], that I will keep

thy righteous judgments.

119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according

unto thy word.

119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my

mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.

119:109 My soul [is] continually in my hand: yet do I not forget

thy law.

119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not

from thy precepts.

119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever:

for they [are] the rejoicing of my heart.

119:112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes

alway, [even unto] the end.

119:113 SAMECH. I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love.

119:114 Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy


119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the

commandments of my God.

119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and

let me not be ashamed of my hope.

119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have

respect unto thy statutes continually.

119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy

statutes: for their deceit [is] falsehood.

119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like]

dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.

119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of

thy judgments.

119:121 AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to

mine oppressors.

119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud

oppress me.

119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of

thy righteousness.

119:124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and

teach me thy statutes.

119:125 I [am] thy servant; give me understanding, that I may

know thy testimonies.

119:126 [It is] time for [thee], LORD, to work: [for] they have

made void thy law.

119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above

fine gold.

119:128 Therefore I esteem all [thy] precepts [concerning] all

[things to be] right; [and] I hate every false way.

119:129 PE. Thy testimonies [are] wonderful: therefore doth my

soul keep them.

119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth

understanding unto the simple.

119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy


119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou

usest to do unto those that love thy name.

119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity

have dominion over me.

119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep

thy precepts.

119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me

thy statutes.

119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep

not thy law.

119:137 TZADDI. Righteous [art] thou, O LORD, and upright [are]

thy judgments.

119:138 Thy testimonies [that] thou hast commanded [are]

righteous and very faithful.

119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have

forgotten thy words.

119:140 Thy word [is] very pure: therefore thy servant loveth


119:141 I [am] small and despised: [yet] do not I forget thy


119:142 Thy righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and

thy law [is] the truth.

119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: [yet] thy

commandments [are] my delights.

119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies [is] everlasting:

give me understanding, and I shall live.

119:145 KOPH. I cried with [my] whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I

will keep thy statutes.

119:146 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy


119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I

hoped in thy word.

119:148 Mine eyes prevent the [night] watches, that I might

meditate in thy word.

119:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD,

quicken me according to thy judgment.

119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far

from thy law.

119:151 Thou [art] near, O LORD; and all thy commandments [are]


119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that

thou hast founded them for ever.

119:153 RESH. Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do

not forget thy law.

119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to

thy word.

119:155 Salvation [is] far from the wicked: for they seek not

thy statutes.

119:156 Great [are] thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me

according to thy judgments.

119:157 Many [are] my persecutors and mine enemies; [yet] do I

not decline from thy testimonies.

119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because

they kept not thy word.

119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD,

according to thy lovingkindness.

119:160 Thy word [is] true [from] the beginning: and every one

of thy righteous judgments [endureth] for ever.

119:161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but

my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

119:163 I hate and abhor lying: [but] thy law do I love.

119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy

righteous judgments.

119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing

shall offend them.

119:166 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy


119:167 My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them


119:168 I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my

ways [are] before thee.

119:169 TAU. 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


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 thy precepts.

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 <A Song of degrees.> In my distress I cried unto the

LORD, and he heard me.

120:2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, [and] from a

deceitful tongue.

120:3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto

thee, thou false tongue?

120:4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.

120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, [that] I dwell in the

tents of Kedar!

120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

120:7 I [am for] peace: but when I speak, they [are] for war.

121:1 <A Song of degrees.> I will lift up mine eyes unto the

hills, from whence cometh my help.

121:2 My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and


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


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


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 <A Song of degrees of David.> I was glad when they said

unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.

122:2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

122:3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

122:4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the

testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.

122:5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the

house of David.

122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that

love thee.

122:7 Peace be within thy walls, [and] prosperity within thy


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


123:1 <A Song of degrees.> 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 <A Song of degrees of David.> 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


125:1 <A Song of degrees.> They that trust in the LORD [shall

be] as mount Zion, [which] cannot be removed, [but] abideth for


125:2 As the mountains [are] round about Jerusalem, so the LORD

[is] round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

125:3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of

the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto


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 <A Song of degrees.> 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


126:4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the


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 <A Song of degrees for Solomon.> Except the LORD build

the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD

keep the city, the watchman waketh [but] in vain.

127:2 [It is] vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to

eat the bread of sorrows: [for] so he giveth his beloved sleep.

127:3 Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the

fruit of the womb [is his] reward.

127:4 As arrows [are] in the hand of a mighty man; so [are]

children of the youth.

127:5 Happy [is] the man that hath his quiver full of them: they

shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in

the gate.

128:1 <A Song of degrees.> 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 thy


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 <A Song of degrees.> 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


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 <A Song of degrees.> Out of the depths have I cried unto

thee, O LORD.

130:2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the

voice of my supplications.

130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who

shall stand?

130:4 But [there is] forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be


130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do

I hope.

130:6 My soul [waiteth] for the Lord more than they that watch

for the morning: [I say, more than] they that watch for the


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 <A Song of degrees of David.> LORD, my heart is not

haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in

great matters, or in things too high for me.

131:2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that

is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child.

131:3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.

132:1 A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, [and] all his


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


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


132:8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy


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


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 <A Song of degrees of David.> 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 <A Song of degrees.> Behold, bless ye the LORD, all [ye]

servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the


134:2 Lift up your hands [in] the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.

134:3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of


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 kings;

135:11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and

all the kingdoms of Canaan:

135:12 And gave their land [for] an heritage, an heritage unto

Israel his people.

135:13 Thy name, O LORD, [endureth] for ever; [and] thy

memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.

135:14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent

himself concerning his servants.

135:15 The idols of the heathen [are] silver and gold, the work

of men's hands.

135:16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but

they see not;

135:17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there [any]

breath in their mouths.

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] for ever:

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] for ever:

136:19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy [endureth] for


136:20 And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy [endureth] for


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 midst thereof.

137:3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us

a song; and they that wasted us [required of us] mirth,

[saying], Sing us [one] of the songs of Zion.

137:4 How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?

137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget

[her cunning].

137:6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the

roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

137:7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of

Jerusalem; who said, Rase [it], rase [it, even] to the

foundation thereof.

137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy

[shall he be], that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.

137:9 Happy [shall he be], that taketh and dasheth thy little

ones against the stones.

138:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> 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 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> 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

right well.

139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in

secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the


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


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


139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my


139:24 And see if [there be any] wicked way in me, and lead me

in the way everlasting.

140:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> 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 my goings.

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 me. Selah.

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 <A Psalm of David.> 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


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 <Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.> 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 I.

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 <A Psalm of David.> Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to

my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, [and] in thy


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


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 <[A Psalm] of David.> 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 unto


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 <David's [Psalm] of praise.> 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 soul.

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

upside down.

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


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 LORD.

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


148:3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of


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 deeps:

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 children:

148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone

is excellent; his glory [is] above the earth and heaven.

all his saints; [even] of the children of Israel, a people near

unto him. Praise ye the LORD.

twoedged sword in their hand;

upon the people;

fetters of iron;

have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.
