standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
- But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate
day and night.
- 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.
- The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
- Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the
congregation of the righteous.
- For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly
- Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
- The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
- Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
- He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in
- Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
- Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
- I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son;
this day have I begotten thee.
- Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and
the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
- Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces
like a potter's vessel.
- Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
- Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
- 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.
- Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up
- Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
- But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine
- I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill.
- I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
- I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves
against me round about.
- 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.
- Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
- 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.
- 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.
- But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the
LORD will hear when I call unto him.
- Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and
be still. Selah.
- Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
- There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? LORD, lift thou up the
light of thy countenance upon us.
- Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn
and their wine increased.
- I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest
me dwell in safety.
- Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
- Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will
- My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I
direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
- For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall
evil dwell with thee.
- The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
- Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody
and deceitful man.
- But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy:
and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
- Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy
way straight before my face.
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass
him as with a shield.
- O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
- Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones
- My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
- Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
- For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give
- I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water
my couch with my tears.
- Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine

voice of my weeping.
- The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

- O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute
me, and deliver me:
- Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is
none to deliver.
- O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
- If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have
delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
- 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.
- 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.
- So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes
therefore return thou on high.
- The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness,
and according to mine integrity that is in me.
- Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just:
for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
- My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
- God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
- If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made
- He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his
arrows against the persecutors.
- Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought
- He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
- His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall
come down upon his own pate.
- I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise
to the name of the LORD most high.
- O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast
set thy glory above the heavens.
- 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.
- When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the
stars, which thou hast ordained;
- What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou
- For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned
him with glory and honour.
- Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast
put all things under his feet:
- All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
- The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through
the paths of the seas.
- O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
- I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all
thy marvellous works.
- I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou
- When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
- For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne
- Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast
put out their name for ever and ever.
- O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed
cities; their memorial is perished with them.
- But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his throne for judgment.
- And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment
to the people in uprightness.
- The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of
- And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD,
hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
- Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people
- When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgetteth
not the cry of the humble.
- 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:
- That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion:
I will rejoice in thy salvation.
- The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they
hid is their own foot taken.
- The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared
in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.
- The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
- For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor
shall not perish for ever.
- Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
- Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but

devices that they have imagined.
- For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous,
whom the LORD abhorreth.
- The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God:
God is not in all his thoughts.
- His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight:
as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.

- His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is
mischief and vanity.
- 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.
- 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.
- He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong
- He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will
never see it.
- Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.
- Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou
wilt not require it.
- 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.
- Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness
till thou find none.
- The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his
- LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their
heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
- To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may
no more oppress.
- In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your

string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
- If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
- The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in heaven: his eyes
behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
- The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence
his soul hateth.
- Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible
tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
- For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold
- Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among
the children of men.
- They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and
with a double heart do they speak.
- The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh
- Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who
is lord over us?

thy face from me?
- How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily?
how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
- Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the
sleep of death;
- Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble
me rejoice when I am moved.
- But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
- I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
- The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they
have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
- The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there
were any that did understand, and seek God.
- They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is
none that doeth good, no, not one.
- Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as
they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
- There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
- Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
- 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
- Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
- He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the
truth in his heart.
- He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour,
nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
- 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.
- He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the
innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
- Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
- O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness
extendeth not to thee;
- But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom
is all my delight.
- 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
- The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest
- The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
- I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct
me in the night seasons.
- I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I
shall not be moved.
- Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall
rest in hope.
- For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine
Holy One to see corruption.
- Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
- Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that
goeth not out of feigned lips.
- Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the
things that are equal.
- 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.
- Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from
the paths of the destroyer.
- Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
- I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear
unto me, and hear my speech.
- 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.
- Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
- From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me
- They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
- They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing
down to the earth;
- Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion
lurking in secret places.
- Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the
wicked, which is thy sword:
- 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
- As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied,
when I awake, with thy likeness.
- I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
- 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
- I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved
from mine enemies.
- The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me
- The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
- 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.
- Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved
and were shaken, because he was wroth.
- There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured:
coals were kindled by it.
- He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
- And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings
of the wind.
- He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark
waters and thick clouds of the skies.
- At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones
and coals of fire.
- The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice;
hail stones and coals of fire.
- Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings,
and discomfited them.
- 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.
- He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
- He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for
they were too strong for me.
- They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
- He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he
delighted in me.
- The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness
of my hands hath he recompensed me.
- For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from
- For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes
- I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
- Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according
to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
- With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man
thou wilt shew thyself upright;
- With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt
shew thyself froward.
- For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
- For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
- For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over
- 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.
- For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
- It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
- He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
- He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
- 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.
- Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
- I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again
till they were consumed.
- I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under
- For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued
under me those that rose up against me.
- Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy
them that hate me.
- They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he
answered them not.
- Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them
out as the dirt in the streets.
- 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
- As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit
themselves unto me.
- The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
- The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation
- It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
- 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.
- Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and
sing praises unto thy name.
- Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed,
to David, and to his seed for evermore.
- The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
- Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
- There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
- 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,
- Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a
strong man to run a race.
- 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.
- The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the
LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
- The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment
of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
- The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the
LORD are true and righteous altogether.
- More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter
also than honey and the honeycomb.
- Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is
- Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
- 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.
- Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable
in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
- The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob
- Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
- Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.
- Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
- We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set
up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
- Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his
holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
- Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name
of the LORD our God.
- They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
- Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
- The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly
shall he rejoice!
- Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request
of his lips. Selah.
- For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a
crown of pure gold on his head.
- He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for
ever and ever.
- His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid
- For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding
glad with thy countenance.
- For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High
he shall not be moved.
- Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find
out those that hate thee.
- 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.
- Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among
the children of men.
- For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device,
which they are not able to perform.
- Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready
thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.
- Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise
- My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping
me, and from the words of my roaring?
- O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night
season, and am not silent.
- But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
- Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
- They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were
- But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
- All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake
the head, saying,
- He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him,
seeing he delighted in him.
- But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when
I was upon my mother's breasts.
- I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.
- Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
- Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
- They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
- I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart
is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
- My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws;
and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
- For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me:
they pierced my hands and my feet.
- I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
- They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
- But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help
- Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
- Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of
- I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation
will I praise thee.
- Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him;
and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
- 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.
- My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows
before them that fear him.
- The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek
him: your heart shall live for ever.
- All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all
the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.
- For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among the nations.
- 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.
- A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
- They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that
shall be born, that he hath done this.
- The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
- He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still
- He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his
- 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.
- Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou
anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
- 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.
- The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that
- For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
- Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy
- He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his
soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
- He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the
God of his salvation.
- This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob.
- Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors;

strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
- Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though
war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
- 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.
- 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.

the land of the living.

be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
- Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up
my hands toward thy holy oracle.
- 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.
- 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
- Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his
hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
- Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
- 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

- 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.
- Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance
of his holiness.
- For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may
endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
- And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
- LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst
hide thy face, and I was troubled.
- I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

me, and guide me.

thou hast known my soul in adversities;
- And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet
in a large room.
- Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with
grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
- For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength
faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
- 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.

took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

in the LORD.

spirit there is no guile.

of my sin. Selah.

mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come
nigh unto him.

ye that are upright in heart.

of ten strings.

of the LORD.

by the breath of his mouth.
- He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the
depth in storehouses.

in awe of him.

of the people of none effect.

- All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the

him that spoileth him?
- False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew

nor his seed begging bread.

shall be cut off.
- But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength
in the time of trouble.
- And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from
the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
- O lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
- For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
- There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there
any rest in my bones because of my sin.
- For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are
too heavy for me.
- My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
- I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
- For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness
in my flesh.
- I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness
of my heart.
- Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
- My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes,
it also is gone from me.
- My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand
- 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.
- But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not
- Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
- For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
- For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my
foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
- For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
- For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
- But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me
wrongfully are multiplied.
- They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow
the thing that good is.
- Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
- Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
- 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.
- I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow
- My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake
I with my tongue,
- LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is:
that I may know how frail I am.
- 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.
- 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.
- And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
- Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the
- I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
- Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
- 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.
- 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
- O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
- I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my
- He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and
set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
- And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many
shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
- Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not
the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
- 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.
- Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened:
burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
- Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
- I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
- I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not
refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
- I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness
and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from
the great congregation.
- Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness
and thy truth continually preserve me.
- 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.
- Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
- 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.
- Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha,
- Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love
thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
- But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help
and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
- Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time
- 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.
- The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make
all his bed in his sickness.
- I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against
- Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
- And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity
to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it.
- All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise
- An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth
he shall rise up no more.
- Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread,
hath lifted up his heel against me.
- But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite
- By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph
- And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before
thy face for ever.
- Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting.
Amen, and Amen.
- As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee,
- My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear
- My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto
me, Where is thy God?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and
thy billows are gone over me.
- Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time, and in the
night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
- I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning
because of the oppression of the enemy?
- As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily
unto me, Where is thy God?
- 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.
- Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver
me from the deceitful and unjust man.
- For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go
I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
- O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me
unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them;
how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
- 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.
- Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
- Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread
them under that rise up against us.
- For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
- But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that
- In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
- But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our

- Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us
among the heathen.
- Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by

them that are round about us.
- Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among

- For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the
enemy and avenger.
- All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have
we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
- Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy
- Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us
with the shadow of death.
- If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to
a strange god;
- Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
- Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep
for the slaughter.
- Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.
- Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
- For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
- Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
- 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.
- Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips:
therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
- Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
- And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and
righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
- Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the
people fall under thee.
- Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is
a right sceptre.
- Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God,
hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
- All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory
palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
- Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did
stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
- Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine
own people, and thy father's house;
- So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship
- And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among
the people shall intreat thy favour.
- The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought
- She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins
her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
- With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into
the king's palace.
- Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes
in all the earth.
- I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall
the people praise thee for ever and ever.
- God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
- Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the
mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
- Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake
with the swelling thereof. Selah.
- There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God,
the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
- God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her,
and that right early.
- The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth

- Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the
- 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.
- Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.
- The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
- O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
- For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
- He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
- He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he
- God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
- Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
- For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
- God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
- 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
- Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in
the mountain of his holiness.
- Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on
the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
- God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
- For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
- They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
- Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
- Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
- 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.
- We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.

thy right hand is full of righteousness.

- Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels
shall compass me about?
- They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude
of their riches;
- None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom
- (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
- That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
- For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person
perish, and leave their wealth to others.
- Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and
their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their
- Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that
- This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings.
- Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the
upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall
consume in the grave from their dwelling.
- But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive
- Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is
- For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend
- Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when
thou doest well to thyself.
- He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
- Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
- The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the
rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
- Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
- Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before
him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
- He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may
judge his people.
- Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with
me by sacrifice.
- And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself.
- Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against
thee: I am God, even thy God.
- I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have
been continually before me.
- I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
- For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
- I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field
- If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the

- Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:
- And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt
- 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?
- Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind thee.
- When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been
partaker with adulterers.
- Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
- Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own
- These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I
was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them
in order before thine eyes.
- Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there
be none to deliver.
- Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation
aright will I shew the salvation of God.
- Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto
the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
- Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
- For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
- 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
- Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
- Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part
thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
- Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter
- Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken
- Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
- Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
- Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
- Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
- O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
- For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest
not in burnt offering.
- The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart,
O God, thou wilt not despise.
- Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
- Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt
offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine

- The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
- Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness.
- Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
- 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
- The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
- 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.
- But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy
of God for ever and ever.
- I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I will wait
on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.
- 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.
- God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were
any that did understand, that did seek God.
- Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there
is none that doeth good, no, not one.
- Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they
eat bread: they have not called upon God.
- 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.
- 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
- Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
- Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
- For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul:
they have not set God before them. Selah.
- Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
- He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth.
- I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for
it is good.
- For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his
desire upon mine enemies.
- Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
- Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
- 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.
- My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen
- Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed
- And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away,
and be at rest.
- Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
- I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
- Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and
strife in the city.
- Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and
sorrow are in the midst of it.
- Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her
- 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:
- But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
- We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
- Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness
is in their dwellings, and among them.
- As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
- Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall
hear my voice.
- He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me:
for there were many with me.
- God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because
they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
- He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath
broken his covenant.
- 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.
- Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never
suffer the righteous to be moved.
- 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
- Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily
- Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against
me, O thou most High.
- What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
- In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear
what flesh can do unto me.
- Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
- They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps,
when they wait for my soul.
- Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
- Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they
not in thy book?
- When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for
God is for me.
- In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
- In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
- Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
- 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?
- 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
- I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for
- 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.
- 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.
- Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the
- 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.
- My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
- Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
- I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among
- For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
- Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the
- Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly,
O ye sons of men?
- Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in
- The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they
be born, speaking lies.
- Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder
that stoppeth her ear;
- Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
- Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of
the young lions, O LORD.
- 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.
- 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.
- Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a
whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
- The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash
his feet in the blood of the wicked.
- So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily
he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
- Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up
- Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
- 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.
- They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and
- 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.
- They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about
- Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for
who, say they, doth hear?
- But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen
- Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.
- The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon
- Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring
them down, O Lord our shield.
- 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.
- 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.
- And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and
go round about the city.
- Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
- 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.
- Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God
of my mercy.
- O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased;
O turn thyself to us again.
- Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches
thereof; for it shaketh.
- Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the
wine of astonishment.
- Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed
because of the truth. Selah.
- That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
- God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem,
and mete out the valley of Succoth.
- Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine
head; Judah is my lawgiver;
- Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph
thou because of me.
- Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
- Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst
not go out with our armies?
- Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
- Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our

- From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed:
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
- For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
- I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of
thy wings. Selah.
- For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of
those that fear thy name.

- 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.

lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
- My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
- He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
- In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge,
is in God.
- Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God
is a refuge for us. Selah.
- 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.
- Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase,
set not your heart upon them.
- God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto
- Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man
according to his work.
- 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;
- To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
- Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
- Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
- My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall
praise thee with joyful lips:
- When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
- Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will

- But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts
of the earth.
- They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
- 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.
- Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
- Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of
the workers of iniquity:
- Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their
arrows, even bitter words:
- That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at
him, and fear not.
- They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares
privily; they say, Who shall see them?
- They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the
inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
- But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
- So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see
them shall flee away.
- And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall
wisely consider of his doing.
- The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all
the upright in heart shall glory.
- Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be
- O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
- Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge
- Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee,
that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of
thy house, even of thy holy temple.
- By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation;
who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are
afar off upon the sea:
- Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:
- Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the
tumult of the people.
- They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens: thou
makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
- 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.
- Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows
thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.

- How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly
consumed with terrors.
- As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt
despise their image.
- Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
- So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
- Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right
- Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
- Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire

thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou
- Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy
hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.

ensigns for signs.
- A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
- But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
- They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down
the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.

up all the synagogues of God in the land.

once thou art angry?

- Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt
- Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring
presents unto him that ought to be feared.

- I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave
ear unto me.
- 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.
- I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.
- Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
- I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
- I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart:
and my spirit made diligent search.
- Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
- Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
- Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender
- And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the
right hand of the most High.
- I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders
- I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

- Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among
- Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
- The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the
depths also were troubled.
- The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also
- The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the
world: the earth trembled and shook.
- Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps
are not known.
- Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
- Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my
- I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
- Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
- 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.
- 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
- That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should
be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
- That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments:
- 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
- The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in
the day of battle.
- They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
- And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
- Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of
Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
- He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters
to stand as an heap.
- In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a
light of fire.
- He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the
- He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down
- And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the
- And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
- Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the
- 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?
- Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against
Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
- Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
- Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of
- And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn
- Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
- He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought
in the south wind.
- He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the
sand of the sea:
- And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
- So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
- They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in
- The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote
down the chosen men of Israel.
- For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
- Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
- When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired
early after God.
- And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
- Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto
him with their tongues.
- For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his
- 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
- For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and
cometh not again.
- How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!
- Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
- They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the
- How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of
- And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could
- He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs,
which destroyed them.
- He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto
- He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
- He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
- He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation,
and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
- He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave
their life over to the pestilence;
- And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the
tabernacles of Ham:
- But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the
wilderness like a flock.
- And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed
- And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain,
which his right hand had purchased.
- 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.
- Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:
- But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned
aside like a deceitful bow.
- For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to
jealousy with their graven images.
- When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
- So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among
- And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's
- He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
- The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to
- Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
- Then the LORD awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth
by reason of wine.
- And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual
- Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of
- But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
- And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath
established for ever.
- He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
- From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his
people, and Israel his inheritance.
- So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them
by the skilfulness of his hands.
- O god, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have
they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
- 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.
- Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there
was none to bury them.
- We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them
that are round about us.
- How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like
- Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon
the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
- For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.
- O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily
prevent us: for we are brought very low.
- 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.
- 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.
- Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness
of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;
- And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach,
wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
- So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever:
we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
- Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock;
thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

- Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen,
and planted it.

it filled the land.
- The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were
like the goodly cedars.
- She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
- Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass
by the way do pluck her?

and visit this vine;

- Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the
brook of Kison:
