1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in
the seat of the scornful.
1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth
he meditate day and night.
1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also
shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind
1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor
sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of
the ungodly shall perish.
2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take
counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed,
2:3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords
2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD
have them in derision.
2:5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in
his sore displeasure.
2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou
art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine
inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy
2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them
in pieces like a potter's vessel.
2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of
2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way,
when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they
that put their trust in him.
3:1 Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they
that rise up against me.
3:2 Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him
in God. Selah.
3:3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the
lifter up of mine head.
3:4 I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of
his holy hill. Selah.
3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.
3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set
themselves against me round about.
3:7 Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all
mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth
of the ungodly.
3:8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy
4:1 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast
enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and
hear my prayer.
4:2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
how long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
4:3 But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for
himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.
4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon
your bed, and be still. Selah.
4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in
4:6 There be many that say, Who will shew us any good?
thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
4:7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that
their corn and their wine increased.
4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou,
only makest me dwell in safety.
5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for
unto thee will I pray.
5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the
morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:
neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5:5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all
workers of iniquity.
5:6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD
abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
5:7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of
thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy
5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
make thy way straight before my face.
5:9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part
is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they
flatter with their tongue.
5:10 Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels;
cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for
they have rebelled against thee.
5:11 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let
them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them
also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt
thou compass him as with a shield.
6:1 O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in
thy hot displeasure.
6:2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me;
for my bones are vexed.
6:3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
6:4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies'
6:5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who
shall give thee thanks?
6:6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to
swim; I water my couch with my tears.
6:7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because
of all mine enemies.
6:8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the
heard the voice of my weeping.
6:9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my
6:10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them
return and be ashamed suddenly.
7:1 O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all
them that persecute me, and deliver me:
7:2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while
there is none to deliver.
7:3 O LORD my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my
7:4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me;
(yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
7:5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him
tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the
7:6 Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the
rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that
thou hast commanded.
7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about:
for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
7:8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according
to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is
7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but
establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts
7:10 My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked
7:12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow,
and made it ready.
7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he
ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived
mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch
which he made.
7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent
dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and
will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
8:1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained
strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still
the enemy and the avenger.
8:3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon
and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man,
that thou visitest him?
8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and
hast crowned him with glory and honour.
8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands;
thou hast put all things under his feet:
8:7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8:8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever
passeth through the paths of the seas.
8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
9:1 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew
forth all thy marvellous works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy
name, O thou most High.
9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish
at thy presence.
9:4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in
the throne judging right.
9:5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked,
thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and
thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with
9:7 But the LORD shall endure for ever: he hath prepared his
throne for judgment.
9:8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall
minister judgment to the people in uprightness.
9:9 The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in
times of trouble.
9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for
thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
9:11 Sing praises to the LORD, which dwelleth in Zion: declare
among the people his doings.
9:12 When he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them: he
forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer
of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates
9:14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the
daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.
9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the
net which they hid is their own foot taken.
9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the
wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion.
9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that
9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of
the poor shall not perish for ever.
9:19 Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged
in thy sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves
to be but men. Selah.
10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in
times of trouble?
10:2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be
taken in the devices that they have imagined.
10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth
the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.
10:4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not
seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
10:5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out
of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall
never be in adversity.
10:7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his
tongue is mischief and vanity.
10:8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the
secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are
privily set against the poor.
10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in
wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he
draweth him into his net.
10:10 He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by
his strong ones.
10:11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his
face; he will never see it.
10:12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the
10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his
heart, Thou wilt not require it.
10:14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to
requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto
thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
10:15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out
his wickedness till thou find none.
10:16 The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished
out of his land.
10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt
prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
10:18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the
earth may no more oppress.
11:1 In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a
bird to your mountain?
11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their
arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the
upright in heart.
11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
11:4 The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's throne is in
heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that
loveth violence his soul hateth.
11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and
an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
11:7 For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance
doth behold the upright.
12:1 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail
from among the children of men.
12:2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with
flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.
12:3 The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue
that speaketh proud things:
12:4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are
our own: who is lord over us?
12:5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,
now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety
from him that puffeth at him.
12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a
furnace of earth, purified seven times.
12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from
this generation for ever.
12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are
13:1 How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt
thou hide thy face from me?
13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my
heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted 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 thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy
13:6 I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully
14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are
corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that
14:2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to
see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
14:3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy:
there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my
people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
14:5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of
14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the
14:7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when
the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob
shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
15:1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in
thy holy hill?
15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and
speaketh the truth in his heart.
15:3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his
neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth
them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and
15:5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward
against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never
16:1 Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
16:2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my
goodness extendeth not to thee;
16:3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent,
in whom is all my delight.
16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another
god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take
up their names into my lips.
16:5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup:
thou maintainest my lot.
16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a
16:7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins
also instruct me in the night seasons.
16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my
right hand, I shall not be moved.
16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh
also shall rest in hope.
16:10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou
suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness
of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
17:1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my
prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
17:2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes
behold the things that are equal.
17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the
night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am
purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have
kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
17:5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
17:6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline
thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.
17:7 Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy
right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that
rise up against them.
17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of
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
17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their
eyes bowing down to the earth;
17:12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a
young lion lurking in secret places.
17:13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul
from the wicked, which is thy sword:
17:14 From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world,
which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou
fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and
leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be
satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
18:1 I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my
God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the
horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so
shall I be saved from mine enemies.
18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly
men made me afraid.
18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death
18:6 In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God:
he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before
him, even into his ears.
18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the
hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
18:8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his
mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was
under his feet.
18:10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon
the wings of the wind.
18:11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about
him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
18:12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed,
hail stones and coals of fire.
18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave
his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
18:14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot
out lightnings, and discomfited them.
18:15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of
the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast
of the breath of thy nostrils.
18:16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which
hated me: for they were too strong for me.
18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the
18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me,
because he delighted in me.
18:20 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according
to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
18:21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly
departed from my God.
18:22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away
his statutes from me.
18:23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine
18:24 Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my
righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his
18:25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an
upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the
froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
18:27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down
18:28 For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten
18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I
leaped over a wall.
18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the
LORD is tried:
he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
18:31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
18:32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way
18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my
18:34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken
by mine arms.
18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy
right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me
18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not
18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I
turn again till they were consumed.
18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are
fallen under my feet.
18:39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou
hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I
might destroy them that hate me.
18:41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the
LORD, but he answered them not.
18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did
cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
18:43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and
thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I
have not known shall serve me.
18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers
shall submit themselves unto me.
18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their
18:46 The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my
salvation be exalted.
18:47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
18:48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up
above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me
from the violent man.
18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the
heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to
his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament
sheweth his handywork.
19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth
19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not
19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words
to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for
19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and
rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit
unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat
19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the
testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the
commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the
judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine
gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them
there is great reward.
19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret
19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them
not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I
shall be innocent from the great transgression.
19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be
acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
20:1 The LORD hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God
of Jacob defend thee;
20:2 Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of
20:3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice;
20:4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy
20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God
we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.
20:6 Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him
from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right
20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will
remember the name of the LORD our God.
20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand
20:9 Save, LORD: let the king hear us when we call.
21:1 The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy
salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not
withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
21:3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou
settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
21:4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of
days for ever and ever.
21:5 His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast
thou laid upon him.
21:6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made
him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
21:7 For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of
the most High he shall not be moved.
21:8 Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand
shall find out those that hate thee.
21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine
anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the
fire shall devour them.
21:10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed
from among the children of men.
21:11 For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a
mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
21:12 Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou
shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the
face of them.
21:13 Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing
and praise thy power.
22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far
from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?
22:2 O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in
the night season, and am not silent.
22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of
22:4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst
22:5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in
thee, and were not confounded.
22:6 But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised
of the people.
22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the
lip, they shake the head, saying,
22:8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him
deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.
22:9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make
me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.
22:10 I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my
22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to
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
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint:
my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue
cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of
22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have
inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.
22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my
22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee
to help me.
22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of
22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the
horns of the unicorns.
22:22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the
congregation will I praise thee.
22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob,
glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.
22:24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the
afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he
cried unto him, he heard.
22:25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will
pay my vows before them that fear him.
22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the
LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.
22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the
LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before
22:28 For the kingdom is the LORD's: and he is the governor among
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
22:31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a
people that shall be born, that he hath done this.
23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me
beside the still waters.
23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for his name's sake.
23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy
staff they comfort me.
23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth 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 hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon
24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand
in his holy place?
24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not
lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness
from the God of his salvation.
24:6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy
face, O Jacob. Selah.
24:7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye
everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the
LORD mighty in battle.
24:9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye
everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King
of glory. Selah.
25:1 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
25:2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine
enemies triumph over me.
25:3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be
ashamed which transgress without cause.
25:4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my
salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
25:6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;
for they have been ever of old.
25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:
according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness'
sake, 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
25:10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as
keep his covenant and his testimonies.
25:11 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is
25:12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in
the way that he shall choose.
25:13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the
25:14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will
shew them his covenant.
25:15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet
out of the net.
25:16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate
25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of
25:18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my
25:19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me
with cruel hatred.
25:20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I
put my trust in thee.
25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
26:1 Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have
trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
26:3 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked
in thy truth.
26:4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with
26:5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit
with the wicked.
26:6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine
altar, O LORD:
26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of
all thy wondrous works.
26:8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place
where thine honour dwelleth.
26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
26:10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of
26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and
be merciful unto me.
26:12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I
bless the LORD.
27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the
LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
27:2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me
to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not
fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be
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
27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set
me up upon a rock.
27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round
about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices
of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
27:7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon
me, and answer me.
27:8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee,
Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
27:9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in
anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake
me, O God of my salvation.
27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the
take me up.
27:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because
of mine enemies.
27:12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false
witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out
27:13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of
the LORD in the land of the living.
27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
28:1 Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me:
lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down
into the pit.
28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when
I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of
iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief
is in their hearts.
28:4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the
wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of
their hands; render to them their desert.
28:5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the
operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build
28:6 Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my
28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.
28:8 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of
28:9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also,
and lift them up for ever.
29:1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD
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
full of majesty.
29:5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the
LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
29:6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion
like a young unicorn.
29:7 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
29:8 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the
the wilderness of Kadesh.
29:9 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and
discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one
speak of his glory.
29:10 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King
29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the
bless his people with peace.
30:1 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and
hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
30:2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
30:3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast
kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
30:4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the
remembrance of his holiness.
30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
30:6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
30:7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand
strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
30:8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made
30:9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
30:10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast
put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
30:12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be
silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
31:1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed:
deliver me in thy righteousness.
31:2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my
strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
31:3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's
sake lead me, and guide me.
31:4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for
thou art my strength.
31:5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O
LORD God of truth.
31:6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in
31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast
considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
31:8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast
set my feet in a large room.
31:9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is
consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
31:10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my
strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are
31:11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among
my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did
see me without fled from me.
31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken
31:13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side:
while they took counsel together against me, they devised to
take away my life.
31:14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.
31:15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine
enemies, and from them that persecute me.
31:16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy
31:17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee:
let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the
31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous
things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
31:19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them
that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in
thee before the sons of men!
31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the
pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from
the strife of tongues.
31:21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous
kindness in a strong city.
31:22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes:
nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when
I cried unto thee.
31:23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD
the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye
that hope in the LORD.
