32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is
32:2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no guile.
32:3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all
the day long.
32:4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is
turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
32:5 I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not
hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD;
and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
32:6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a
time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great
waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
32:7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou
shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
32:9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no
understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and
bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
32:10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in
the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
32:11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for
joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
33:1 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for
33:2 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and
an instrument of ten strings.
33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done
33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the
goodness of the LORD.
33:6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the
host of them by the breath of his mouth.
33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he
layeth up the depth in storehouses.
33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of
the world stand in awe of him.
33:9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood
33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he
maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
33:11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his
heart to all generations.
33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people
whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
33:13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of
33:14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the
inhabitants of the earth.
33:15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their
33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty
man is not delivered by much strength.
33:17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver
any by his great strength.
33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon
them that hope in his mercy;
33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in
33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in
his holy name.
33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in
34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall
continually be in my mouth.
34:2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall
hear thereof, and be glad.
34:3 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name
34:4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all
34:5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were
34:6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out
of all his troubles.
34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear
him, and delivereth them.
34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that
trusteth in him.
34:9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them
that fear him.
34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek
the LORD shall not want any good thing.
34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear
of the LORD.
34:12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that
he may see good?
34:13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
34:15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are
open unto their cry.
34:16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off
the remembrance of them from the earth.
34:17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them
out of all their troubles.
34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and
saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the
LORD delivereth him out of them all.
34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous
shall be desolate.
34:22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them
that trust in him shall be desolate.
35:1 Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight
against them that fight against me.
35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
35:3 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that
persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my
soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that
devise my hurt.
35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the
LORD chase them.
35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the
LORD persecute them.
35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit,
which without cause they have digged for my soul.
35:8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net
that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let
35:9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in
35:10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which
deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea,
the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
35:11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things
that I knew not.
35:12 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth:
I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into
mine own bosom.
35:14 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I
bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
35:15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves
together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together
against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased
35:16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with
35:17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their
destructions, my darling from the lions.
35:18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will
praise thee among much people.
35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me:
neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a
35:20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters
against them that are quiet in the land.
35:21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha,
aha, our eye hath seen it.
35:22 This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O
Lord, be not
far from me.
35:23 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause,
my God and my Lord.
35:24 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and
let them not rejoice over me.
35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let
them not say, We have swallowed him up.
35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that
rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and
dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous
cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be
magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his
35:28 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy
praise all the day long.
36:1 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
36:2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity
be found to be hateful.
36:3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left
off to be wise, and to do good.
36:4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way
that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
36:5 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness
reacheth unto the clouds.
36:6 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments
are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the
children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy
house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy
36:9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we
36:10 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and
thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
36:11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the
hand of the wicked remove me.
36:12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down,
and shall not be able to rise.
37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious
against the workers of iniquity.
37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as
the green herb.
37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the
land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the
desires of thine heart.
37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall
bring it to pass.
37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and
thy judgment as the noonday.
37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself
because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man
who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any
wise to do evil.
37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the
LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou
shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight
themselves in the abundance of peace.
37:12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him
with his teeth.
37:13 The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is
37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow,
to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of
37:15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows
shall be broken.
37:16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches
of many wicked.
37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the
LORD upholdeth the righteous.
37:18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their
inheritance shall be for ever.
37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of
famine they shall be satisfied.
37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the
be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall
they consume away.
37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous
sheweth mercy, and giveth.
37:22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and
they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he
delighteth in his way.
37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the
LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the
righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
37:26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
37:28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints;
they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall
be cut off.
37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for
37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue
talketh of judgment.
37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall
37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
37:33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when
he is judged.
37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to
inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see
37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself
like a green bay tree.
37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him,
but he could not be found.
37:37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of
that man is peace.
37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of
the wicked shall be cut off.
37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their
strength in the time of trouble.
37:40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall
deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they
trust in him.
38:1 O lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy
38:2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me
38:3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger;
neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy
burden they are too heavy for me.
38:5 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
38:6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the
38:7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is
no soundness in my flesh.
38:8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the
disquietness of my heart.
38:9 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid
38:10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of
mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my
kinsmen stand afar off.
38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they
that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine
deceits all the day long.
38:13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that
openeth not his mouth.
38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are
38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O
Lord my God.
38:16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over
me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
38:17 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before
38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
38:19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they
that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries;
because I follow the thing that good is.
38:21 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
38:22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
39:1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my
tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked
is before me.
39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and
my sorrow was stirred.
39:3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire
burned: then spake I with my tongue,
39:4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days,
what it is: that I may know how frail I am.
39:5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age
is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state
is altogether vanity. Selah.
39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are
disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who
shall gather them.
39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the
reproach of the foolish.
39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
39:10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of
39:11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou
makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every
man is vanity. Selah.
39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy
peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a
sojourner, as all my fathers were.
39:13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence,
and be no more.
40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and
heard my cry.
40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry
clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our
God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
40:4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and
respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast
done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be
reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak
of them, they are more than can be numbered.
40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast
thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not
40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is
written of me,
040:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my
40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I
have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have
declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not
concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great
40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O
LORD: let thy
lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities
have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up;
they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart
40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help
40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my
soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to
shame that wish me evil.
40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto
me, Aha, aha.
40:16 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let
such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be
40:17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou
art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD
him in time of trouble.
41:2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall
be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto
the will of his enemies.
41:3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou
wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
41:4 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have
sinned against thee.
41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name
41:6 And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart
gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth
41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do
they devise my hurt.
41:8 An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now
that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did
eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
41:10 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I
may requite them.
41:11 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth
not triumph over me.
41:12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and
settest me before thy face for ever.
41:13 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to
everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
42:1 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul
after thee, O God.
42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I
come and appear before God?
42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they
continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
42:4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I
had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of
God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that
42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the
help of his countenance.
42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I
remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites,
from the hill Mizar.
42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all
thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
42:8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time,
and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto
the God of my life.
42:9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why
go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
42:10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while
they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who
is the health of my countenance, and my God.
43:1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation:
O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
43:2 For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me
off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
43:3 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them
bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
43:4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding
joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
43:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the
health of my countenance, and my God.
44:1 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us,
what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
44:2 How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and
plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast
44:3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword,
neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and
thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou
hadst a favour unto them.
44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
44:5 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name
will we tread them under that rise up against us.
44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save
44:7 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to
shame that hated us.
44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for
44:9 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not
forth with our armies.
44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which
hate us spoil for themselves.
44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast
scattered us among the heathen.
44:12 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy
wealth by their price.
44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a
derision to them that are round about us.
44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the
head among the people.
44:15 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my
face hath covered me,
44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by
reason of the enemy and avenger.
44:17 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee,
neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined
from thy way;
44:19 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and
covered us with the shadow of death.
44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our
hands to a strange god;
44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of
44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are
counted as sheep for the slaughter.
44:23 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for
44:24 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction
and our oppression?
44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth
unto the earth.
44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
45:1 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
45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into
thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
45:3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory
and thy majesty.
45:4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and
meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach
thee terrible things.
45:5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies;
whereby the people fall under thee.
45:6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy
kingdom is a right sceptre.
45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore
God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness
above thy fellows.
45:8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of
the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
45:9 Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy
right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
45:10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear;
forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
45:11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy
Lord; and worship thou him.
45:12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the
rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
45:13 The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of
45:14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework:
the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought
45:15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall
enter into the king's palace.
45:16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest
make princes in all the earth.
45:17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations:
therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in
46:2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and
though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
46:3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the
mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
46:4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city
of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
46:5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall
help her, and that right early.
46:6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his
voice, the earth melted.
46:7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
46:8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath
made in the earth.
46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh
the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the
chariot in the fire.
46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the
heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
46:11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
47:1 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the
voice of triumph.
47:2 For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over
all the earth.
47:3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our
47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of
Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a
47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King,
47:7 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with
47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of
47:9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the
people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth
belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
48:1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of
our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount
Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
48:3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
48:4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
48:5 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and
48:6 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in
48:7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
48:8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the
hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever.
48:9 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of
48:10 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends
of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
48:11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad,
because of thy judgments.
48:12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers
48:13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may
tell it to the generation following.
48:14 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our
guide even unto death.
49:1 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the
49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart
shall be of understanding.
49:4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark
saying upon the harp.
49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity
of my heels shall compass me about?
49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the
multitude of their riches;
49:7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to
God a ransom for him:
49:8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth
49:9 That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
49:10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the
brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
49:11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for
ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call
their lands after their own names.
49:12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the
beasts that perish.
49:13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve
their sayings. Selah.
49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on
them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the
morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from
49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for
he shall receive me. Selah.
49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of
his house is increased;
49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall
not descend after him.
49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise
thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never
49:20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the
beasts that perish.
50:1 The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the
earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall
devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round
50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth,
that he may judge his people.
50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a
covenant with me by sacrifice.
50:6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is
judge himself. Selah.
50:7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will
testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt
offerings, to have been continually before me.
50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of
50:10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a
50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of
the field are mine.
50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is
mine, and the fulness thereof.
50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most
50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee,
and thou shalt glorify me.
50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare
my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy
50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and casteth my words behind
50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and
hast been partaker with adulterers.
50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
50:20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest
thine own mother's son.
50:21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou
thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I
will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in
pieces, and there be none to deliver.
50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth
his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness:
according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my
51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my
51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before
51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in
thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest,
and be clear when thou judgest.
51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother
51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the
hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I
shall be whiter than snow.
51:8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou
hast broken may rejoice.
51:9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit
51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy
spirit from me.
51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with
thy free spirit.
51:13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be
converted unto thee.
51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my
salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy
51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy
51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou
delightest not in burnt offering.
51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a
contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
51:18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls
51:19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of
righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering:
then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
52:1 Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the
goodness of God endureth continually.
52:2 The tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working
52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to
speak righteousness. Selah.
52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
52:5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee
away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee
out of the land of the living. Selah.
52:6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at
52:7 Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but
trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened
himself in his wickedness.
52:8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust
in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
52:9 I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it: and I
will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.
53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are
they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that
53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see
if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
53:3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become
filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
53:4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my
people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
53:5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath
scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou
hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.
53:6 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When
God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall
rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
54:1 Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
54:3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek
after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah.
54:4 Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold
54:5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy
54:6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O
LORD; for it is good.
54:7 For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath
seen his desire upon mine enemies.
55:1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my
55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make
55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression
of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath
they hate me.
55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death
are fallen upon me.
55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath
55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I
fly away, and be at rest.
55:7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness.
55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
55:9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen
violence and strife in the city.
55:10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof:
mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
55:11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart
not from her streets.
55:12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have
borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify
himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
55:13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine
55:14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of
God in company.
55:15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into
hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.
55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was
against me: for there were many with me.
55:19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old.
Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not
55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with
him: he hath broken his covenant.
55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was
in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they
55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he
shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
55:23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of
destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half
their days; but I will trust in thee.
56:1 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he
fighting daily oppresseth me.
56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that
fight against me, O thou most High.
56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I
will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against
me for evil.
56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they
mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the
people, O God.
56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?
56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this
I know; for God is for me.
56:10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his
56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can
do unto me.
56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou
deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in
the light of the living?
57:1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul
trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make
my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
57:2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all
things for me.
57:3 He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of
him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his
mercy and his truth.
57:4 My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set
on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and
arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
57:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be
above all the earth.
57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down:
they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they
are fallen themselves. Selah.
57:7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and
57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will
57:9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto
thee among the nations.
57:10 For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto
57:11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be
above all the earth.
58:1 Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge
uprightly, O ye sons of men?
58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of
your hands in the earth.
58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon
as they be born, speaking lies.
58:4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like
the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;
58:5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming
never so wisely.
58:6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great
teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
58:7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he
bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in
58:8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away:
like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the
58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away
as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he
shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the
righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
59:1 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them
that rise up against me.
59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from
59:3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered
against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
59:4 They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to
help me, and behold.
59:5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake
to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked
59:6 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go
round about the city.
59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their
lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the
heathen in derision.
59:9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my
59:10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my
desire upon mine enemies.
59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy
power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
59:12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let
them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying
which they speak.
59:13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and
let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the
59:14 And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like
a dog, and go round about the city.
59:15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be
59:16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy
mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge
in the day of my trouble.
59:17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence,
and the God of my mercy.
