2:4 He that sits 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 has said unto me, You art my Son; this day have I begotten you.
2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
2:10 Be wise now therefore, O you kings: be instructed, you 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 you perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
3:1 LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.
3:2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.
3:3 But you, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
3:4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.
3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.
3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for you have smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; you have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: your blessing is upon your people. Selah.
4:1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: you have enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
4:2 O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory into shame? how long will you love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
4:3 But know that the LORD has 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 show us any good? LORD, lift you up the light of your countenance upon us.
4:7 You have 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 you, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto you will I pray.
5:3 My voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.
5:4 For you art not a God that has pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with you.
5:5 The foolish shall not stand in your sight: you hatest all workers of iniquity.
5:6 You shall destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
5:7 But as for me, I will come into your house in the multitude of your mercy: and in your fear will I worship toward your holy temple.
5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of mine enemies; make your 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 you them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against you.
5:11 But let all those that put their trust in you rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because you defendest them: let them also that love your name be joyful in you.
5:12 For you, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favor will you compass him as with a shield.
6:1 O LORD, rebuke me not in your anger, neither chasten me in your 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 you, O LORD, how long?
6:4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for your mercies' sake.
6:5 For in death there is no remembrance of you: in the grave who shall give you 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 you workers of iniquity; for the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.
6:9 The LORD has heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.
6:10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.
7:1 O LORD my God, in you 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; (yes, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
7:5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yes, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust. Selah.
7:6 Arise, O LORD, in your anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that you have commanded.
7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass you about: for their sakes therefore return you on high.
7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
7:10 My defense is of God, which saves the upright in heart.
7:11 God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
7:12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he has bent his bow, and made it ready.
7:13 He has also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
7:14 Behold, he travails with iniquity, and has conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
8:1 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who have set your glory above the heavens.
8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
8:3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
8:4 What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visitest him?
8:5 For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and have crowned him with glory and honor.
8:6 You madest him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet:
8:7 All sheep and oxen, yes, and the beasts of the field;
8:8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas.
8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!
9:1 I will praise you, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will show forth all your marvellous works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in you: I will sing praise to your name, O you most High.
9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at your presence.
9:4 For you have maintained my right and my cause; you satest in the throne judging right.
9:5 You have rebuked the heathen, you have destroyed the wicked, you have put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6 O you enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and you have destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he has 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 your name will put their trust in you: for you, LORD, have not forsaken them that seek you.
9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwells in Zion: declare among the people his doings.
9:12 When he makes inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he forgets 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, you that lifts me up from the gates of death:
9:14 That I may show forth all your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in your 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. Selah.
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 your sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
10:1 Why standest you afar off, O LORD? why hidest you thyself in times of trouble?
10:2 The wicked in his pride does 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 blesses the covetous, whom the LORD abhors.
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; your judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
10:6 He has 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 sits in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places does he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
10:9 He lies in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lies in wait to catch the poor: he does catch the poor, when he draws him into his net.
10:10 He croucheth, and humbles himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
10:11 He has said in his heart, God has forgotten: he hides his face; he will never see it.
10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up your hand: forget not the humble.
10:13 Wherefore does the wicked spurn God? he has said in his heart, You will not require it.
10:14 You have seen it; for you behold mischief and spite, to requite it with your hand: the poor commits himself unto you; you are the helper of the fatherless.
10:15 Break you the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till you find none.
10:16 The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
10:17 LORD, you have heard the desire of the humble: you will prepare their heart, you will cause your ear to hear:
10:18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
11:1 In the LORD put I my trust: how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the 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 loves violence his soul hates.
11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
11:7 For the righteous LORD loves righteousness; his countenance does 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 neighbor: 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 speaks 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, says 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 You shall keep them, O LORD, you shall preserve them from this generation for ever.
12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
13:1 How long will you forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long will you hide your 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 me?
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 your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
13:6 I will sing unto the LORD, because he has dealt bountifully with me.
14:1 The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.
14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
14:3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that does 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 You 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 brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
15:1 LORD, who shall abide in your tabernacle? who shall dwell in your holy hill?
15:2 He that walks uprightly, and works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his heart.
15:3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor does evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor.
15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honors them that fear the LORD. He that swears to his own hurt, and changeth not.
15:5 He that puts not out his money to usury, nor takes reward against the innocent. He that does these things shall never be moved.
16:1 Preserve me, O God: for in you do I put my trust.
16:2 O my soul, you have said unto the LORD, You art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to you;
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: you maintainest my lot.
16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yes, I have a goodly heritage.
16:7 I will bless the LORD, who has 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 rejoices: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
16:10 For you will not leave my soul in hell; neither will you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.
16:11 You will show me the path of life: in your presence is fulness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
17:1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goes not out of feigned lips.
17:2 Let my sentence come forth from your presence; let your eyes behold the things that are equal.
17:3 You have proved mine heart; you have visited me in the night; you have tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
17:5 Hold up my goings in your paths, that my footsteps slip not.
17:6 I have called upon you, for you will hear me, O God: incline your ear unto me, and hear my speech.
17:7 Show your marvellous lovingkindness, O you that savest by your right hand them which put their trust in you from those that rise up against them.
17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of your 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 your sword:
17:14 From men which are your hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly you fillest with your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
17:15 As for me, I will behold your face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with your likeness.
18:1 I will love you, 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: yes, 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 Yes, 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 your rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of your nostrils.
18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands has he recompensed me.
18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
18:22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
18:24 Therefore has the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
18:25 With the merciful you will show thyself merciful; with an upright man you will show thyself upright;
18:26 With the pure you will show thyself pure; and with the froward you will show thyself froward.
18:27 For you will save the afflicted people; but will bring down high looks.
18:28 For you will light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
18:29 For by you 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 makes my way perfect.
18:33 He makes my feet like hinds' feet, and sets me upon my high places.
18:34 He teaches my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
18:35 You have also given me the shield of your salvation: and your right hand has holden me up, and your gentleness has made me great.
18:36 You have enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
18:39 For you have girded me with strength unto the battle: you have subdued under me those that rose up against me.
18:40 You have 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 You have delivered me from the strivings of the people; and you have 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 lives; 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 delivers me from mine enemies: yes, you lifts me up above those that rise up against me: you have delivered me from the violent man.
18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto you, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto your name.
18:50 Great deliverance gives he to his king; and shows mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handywork.
19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night shows knowledge.
19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them has he set a tabernacle for the sun,
19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices 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, yes, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
19:11 Moreover by them is your servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse you me from secret faults.
19:13 Keep back your 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 your sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
20:1 The LORD hear you in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
20:2 Send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion;
20:3 Remember all your offerings, and accept your burnt sacrifice; Selah.
20:4 Grant you according to your own heart, and fulfil all your counsel.
20:5 We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all your petitions.
20:6 Now know I that the LORD saves his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand.
20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
20:9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
21:1 The king shall joy in your strength, O LORD; and in your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
21:2 You have given him his heart's desire, and have not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
21:3 For you preventest him with the blessings of goodness: you settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
21:4 He asked life of you, and you gave it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
21:5 His glory is great in your salvation: honor and majesty have you laid upon him.
21:6 For you have made him most blessed for ever: you have made him exceeding glad with your countenance.
21:7 For the king trusts in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
21:8 Thine hand shall find out all your enemies: your right hand shall find out those that hate you.
21:9 You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
21:10 Their fruit shall you destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
21:11 For they intended evil against you: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
21:12 Therefore shall you make them turn their back, when you shall make ready thine arrows upon your strings against the face of them.
21:13 Be you exalted, LORD, in your own strength: so will we sing and praise your power.
22:1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? why are you so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
22:2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
22:3 But you art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
22:4 Our fathers trusted in you: they trusted, and you did deliver them.
22:5 They cried unto you, and were delivered: they trusted in you, 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 you art he that took me out of the womb: you did make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
22:10 I was cast upon you from the womb: you art my God from my mother's belly.
22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.
22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
22:13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and you have brought me into the dust of death.
22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
22:19 But be not you far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste you 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 you have heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
22:22 I will declare your name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise you.
22:23 You that fear the LORD, praise him; all you the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all you the seed of Israel.
22:24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither has he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.
22:25 My praise shall be of you 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 you.
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 has done this.
23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
23:2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters.
23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
23:4 Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for you art with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me.
23:5 You preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: you 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 The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
24:2 For he has 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 has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has 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 your face, O Jacob. Selah.
24:7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be you lift up, you 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 you gates; even lift them up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
25:1 Unto you, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
25:2 O my God, I trust in you: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
25:3 Yes, let none that wait on you be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
25:4 Show me your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.
25:5 Lead me in your truth, and teach me: for you art the God of my salvation; on you do I wait all the day.
25:6 Remember, O LORD, your tender mercies and your lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to your mercy remember you me for your goodness' sake, O LORD.
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 your name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
25:12 What man is he that fears 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 show 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 you unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring you me out of my distresses.
25:18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
25:19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
25:20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in you.
25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on you.
25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
26:1 Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
26:3 For your lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in your truth.
26:4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
26:5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
26:6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass your altar, O LORD:
26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all your wondrous works.
26:8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of your house, and the place where your honor dwells.
26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
26:10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
26:12 My foot stands in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
27:2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
27:4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yes, 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 you saidst, Seek you my face; my heart said unto you, Your face, LORD, will I seek.
27:9 Hide not your face far from me; put not your servant away in anger: you have 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 your 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 your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
28:1 Unto you will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if you 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 you, when I lift up my hands toward your holy oracle.
28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbors, 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 has 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 rejoices; 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 your people, and bless your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
29:1 Give unto the LORD, O you 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 breaks the cedars; yes, the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
29:6 He makes 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 makes the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple does every one speak of his glory.
29:10 The LORD sits upon the flood; yes, the LORD sits King for ever.
29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.
30:1 I will extol you, O LORD; for you have lifted me up, and have not made my foes to rejoice over me.
30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto you, and you have healed me.
30:3 O LORD, you have brought up my soul from the grave: you have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O you saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
30:6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
30:7 LORD, by your favor you have made my mountain to stand strong: you did hide your face, and I was troubled.
30:8 I cried to you, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
30:9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise you? shall it declare your truth?
30:10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be you my helper.
30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to you, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto you for ever.
