60:1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou
hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
60:2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal
the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
60:3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to
drink the wine of astonishment.
60:4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may
be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
60:5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand,
and hear me.
60:6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide
Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
60:7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the
strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
60:8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe:
Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
60:9 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into
60:10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O
God, which didst not go out with our armies?
60:11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall
tread down our enemies.
61:1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart
is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
61:3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from
61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the
covert of thy wings. Selah.
61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the
heritage of those that fear thy name.
61:6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many
61:7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth,
which may preserve him.
61:8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily
perform my vows.
62:1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.
62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall
not be greatly moved.
62:3 How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be
slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a
62:4 They only consult to cast him down from his excellency: they
delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse
62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from
62:6 He only is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall
not be moved.
62:7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength,
and my refuge, is in God.
62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart
before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.
62:9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree
are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether
lighter than vanity.
62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if
riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
62:11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power
belongeth unto God.
62:12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to
every man according to his work.
63:1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul
thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and
thirsty land, where no water is;
63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the
63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall
63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands
in thy name.
63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my
mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the
63:7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy
wings will I rejoice.
63:8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth
63:9 But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the
lower parts of the earth.
63:10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for
63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by
him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall
64:1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear
of the enemy.
64:2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the
insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
64:3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to
shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
64:4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they
shoot at him, and fear not.
64:5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of
laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
64:6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search:
both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart,
64:7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they
64:8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves:
all that see them shall flee away.
64:9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for
they shall wisely consider of his doing.
64:10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in
him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
65:1 Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall
the vow be performed.
65:2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
65:3 Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou
shalt purge them away.
65:4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach
unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be
satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy
65:5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God
of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of
the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
65:6 Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded
65:7 Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their
waves, and the tumult of the people.
65:8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy
tokens: thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening
65:9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly
enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water:
thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
65:10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the
furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou
blessest the springing thereof.
65:11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop
65:12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little
hills rejoice on every side.
65:13 The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are
covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
66:1 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
66:2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the
greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves
66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee;
they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
66:5 Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing
toward the children of men.
66:6 He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood
on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
66:7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations:
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
66:8 O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise
to be heard:
66:9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to
66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver
66:11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon
66:12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through
fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a
66:13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee
66:14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I
was in trouble.
66:15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the
incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
66:16 Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what
he hath done for my soul.
66:17 I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my
66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
66:19 But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of
66:20 Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his
mercy from me.
67:1 God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to
shine upon us; Selah.
67:2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among
67:3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise
67:4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt
judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon
67:5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise
67:6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own
God, shall bless us.
67:7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear
68:1 Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also
that hate him flee before him.
68:2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth
before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of
68:3 But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God:
yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
68:4 Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth
upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
68:5 A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God
in his holy habitation.
68:6 God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those
which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry
68:7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou
didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
68:8 The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of
God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the
God of Israel.
68:9 Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst
confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
68:10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast
prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
68:11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that
68:12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home
divided the spoil.
68:13 Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the
wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with
68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow
68:15 The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the
hill of Bashan.
68:16 Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God
desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.
68:17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of
angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy
68:18 Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive:
thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious
also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.
68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even
the God of our salvation. Selah.
68:20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the
Lord belong the issues from death.
68:21 But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy
scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
68:22 The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my
people again from the depths of the sea:
68:23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and
the tongue of thy dogs in the same.
68:24 They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God,
my King, in the sanctuary.
68:25 The singers went before, the players on instruments followed
after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.
68:26 Bless ye God in the congregations, even the
Lord, from the
fountain of Israel.
68:27 There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of
Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the
princes of Naphtali.
68:28 Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that
which thou hast wrought for us.
68:29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents
68:30 Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls,
with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself
with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in
68:31 Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch
out her hands unto God.
68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto
the Lord; Selah:
68:33 To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of
old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
68:34 Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel,
and his strength is in the clouds.
68:35 O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of
Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people.
Blessed be God.
69:1 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
69:2 I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come
into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
69:3 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail
while I wait for my God.
69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of
mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies
wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not
69:5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid
69:6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be
ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be
confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
69:7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered
69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my
69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the
reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
69:10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to
69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to
69:12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song
of the drunkards.
69:13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an
acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me,
in the truth of thy salvation.
69:14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be
delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
69:15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep
swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
69:16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me
according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
69:17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble:
hear me speedily.
69:18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of
69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour:
mine adversaries are all before thee.
69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and
I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for
comforters, but I found none.
69:21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave
me vinegar to drink.
69:22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which
should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
69:23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their
loins continually to shake.
69:24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful
anger take hold of them.
69:25 Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their
69:26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk
to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
69:27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be
written with the righteous.
69:29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me
up on high.
69:30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify
him with thanksgiving.
69:31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock
that hath horns and hoofs.
69:32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall
live that seek God.
69:33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his
69:34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing
that moveth therein.
69:35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah:
that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
69:36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that
love his name shall dwell therein.
70:1 MAKE HASTE, O GOD, TO DELIVER ME; MAKE HASTE TO HELP ME, O
70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul:
let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire
70:3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say,
70:4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and
let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be
70:5 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art
my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
71:1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to
71:2 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape:
incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
71:3 Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually
resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art
my rock and my fortress.
71:4 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of
the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
71:5 For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my
71:6 By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that
took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be
continually of thee.
71:7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
71:8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all
71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my
71:10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for
my soul take counsel together,
71:11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for
there is none to deliver him.
71:12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
71:13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my
soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that
seek my hurt.
71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and
71:15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation
all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
71:16 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention
of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
71:17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I
declared thy wondrous works.
71:18 Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not;
until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy
power to every one that is to come.
71:19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done
great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
71:20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt
quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths
of the earth.
71:21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every
71:22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O
my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One
71:23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my
soul, which thou hast redeemed.
71:24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day
long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto
shame, that seek my hurt.
72:1 Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto
the king's son.
72:2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor
72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little
hills, by righteousness.
72:4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the
children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the
72:5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure,
throughout all generations.
72:6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers
that water the earth.
72:7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of
peace so long as the moon endureth.
72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the
river unto the ends of the earth.
72:9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and
his enemies shall lick the dust.
72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents:
the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall
72:12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also,
and him that hath no helper.
72:13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of
72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and
precious shall their blood be in his sight.
72:15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of
Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and
daily shall he be praised.
72:16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of
the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and
they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
72:17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as
long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations
shall call him blessed.
72:18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth
72:19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole
earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
73:1 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean
73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well
73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of
73:4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is
73:5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued
like other men.
73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence
covereth them as a garment.
73:7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart
73:8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression:
they speak loftily.
73:9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue
walketh through the earth.
73:10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup
are wrung out to them.
73:11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the
73:12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they
increase in riches.
73:13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands
73:14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every
73:15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against
the generation of thy children.
73:16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
73:17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I
73:18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst
them down into destruction.
73:19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are
utterly consumed with terrors.
73:20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest,
thou shalt despise their image.
73:21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
73:22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
73:23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me
by my right hand.
73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me
73:25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth
that I desire beside thee.
73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my
heart, and my portion for ever.
73:27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast
destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust
in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
74:1 O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine
anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
74:2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old;
the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this
mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
74:3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that
the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
74:4 Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set
up their ensigns for signs.
74:5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the
74:6 But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with
axes and hammers.
74:7 They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by
casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.
74:8 They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they
have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
74:9 We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is
there among us any that knoweth how long.
74:10 O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy
blaspheme thy name for ever?
74:11 Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it
out of thy bosom.
74:12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of
74:13 Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the
heads of the dragons in the waters.
74:14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him
to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
74:15 Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood: thou driedst up
74:16 The day is thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared
the light and the sun.
74:17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made
summer and winter.
74:18 Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O
that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.
74:19 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of
the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
74:20 Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the
earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
74:21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy
praise thy name.
74:22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish
man reproacheth thee daily.
74:23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies: the tumult of those
that rise up against thee increaseth continually.
75:1 Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give
thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
75:2 When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
75:3 The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I
bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
75:4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked,
Lift not up the horn:
75:5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
75:6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west,
nor from the south.
75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up
75:8 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is
red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same:
but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring
them out, and drink them.
75:9 But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of
75:10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns
of the righteous shall be exalted.
76:1 In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.
76:2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in
76:3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the
sword, and the battle. Selah.
76:4 Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of
76:5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and
none of the men of might have found their hands.
76:6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are
cast into a dead sleep.
76:7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy
sight when once thou art angry?
76:8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth
feared, and was still,
76:9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth.
76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of
wrath shalt thou restrain.
76:11 Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round
about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
76:12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the
kings of the earth.
77:1 I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice;
and he gave ear unto me.
77:2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the
night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
77:3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my
spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
77:4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot
77:5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
77:6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with
mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
77:7 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no
77:8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for
77:9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up
his tender mercies? Selah.
77:10 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the
years of the right hand of the most High.
77:11 I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember
thy wonders of old.
77:12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
77:13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as
77:14 Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy
strength among the people.
77:15 Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of
Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
77:16 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were
afraid: the depths also were troubled.
77:17 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine
arrows also went abroad.
77:18 The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings
lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
77:19 Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and
thy footsteps are not known.
77:20 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and
78:1 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the
words of my mouth.
78:2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings
78:3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
78:4 We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the
generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength,
and his wonderful works that he hath done.
78:5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law
in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should
make them known to their children:
78:6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children
which should be born; who should arise and declare them to
78:7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the
works of God, but keep his commandments:
78:8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious
generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and
whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
78:9 The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows,
turned back in the day of battle.
78:10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his
78:11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
78:12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the
land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
78:13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he
made the waters to stand as an heap.
78:14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the
night with a light of fire.
78:15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as
out of the great depths.
78:16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to
run down like rivers.
78:17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most
High in the wilderness.
78:18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their
78:19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a
table in the wilderness?
78:20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the
streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide
flesh for his people?
78:21 Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was
kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
78:22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his
78:23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the
doors of heaven,
78:24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them
of the corn of heaven.
78:25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
78:26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power
he brought in the south wind.
78:27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls
like as the sand of the sea:
78:28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about
78:29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their
78:30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat
was yet in their mouths,
78:31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them,
and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
78:32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his
78:33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years
78:34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and
enquired early after God.
78:35 And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God
78:36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they
lied unto him with their tongues.
78:37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they
stedfast in his covenant.
78:38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and
destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away,
and did not stir up all his wrath.
78:39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that
passeth away, and cometh not again.
78:40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him
in the desert!
78:41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy
One of Israel.
78:42 They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered
them from the enemy.
78:43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the
field of Zoan.
78:44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that
they could not drink.
78:45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them;
and frogs, which destroyed them.
78:46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their
labour unto the locust.
78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees
78:48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to
78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and
indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
78:50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from
death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
78:51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their
strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
78:52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided
them in the wilderness like a flock.
78:53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the
sea overwhelmed their enemies.
78:54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to
this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.
78:55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an
inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in
78:56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not
78:57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers:
they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
78:58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and
moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
78:59 When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred
78:60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he
placed among men;
78:61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into
the enemy's hand.
78:62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth
with his inheritance.
78:63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not
given to marriage.
78:64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no
78:65 Then the LORD awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty
man that shouteth by reason of wine.
78:66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a
78:67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not
the tribe of Ephraim:
78:68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
78:69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth
which he hath established for ever.
78:70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the
78:71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to
feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
78:72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and
guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
79:1 O god, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy
temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
79:2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat
unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the
beasts of the earth.
79:3 Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem;
and there was none to bury them.
79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and
derision to them that are round about us.
79:5 How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy
jealousy burn like fire?
79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee,
and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
79:7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling
79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender
mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.
79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name:
and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.
79:10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him
be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of
the blood of thy servants which is shed.
79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to
the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are
appointed to die;
79:12 And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom
their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee
thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all
80:1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like
a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine
80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength,
and come and save us.
80:3 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we
shall be saved.
80:4 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the
prayer of thy people?
80:5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them
tears to drink in great measure.
80:6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies
laugh among themselves.
80:7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine;
and we shall be saved.
80:8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the
heathen, and planted it.
80:9 Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take
deep root, and it filled the land.
80:10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs
thereof were like the goodly cedars.
80:11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto
80:12 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they
which pass by the way do pluck her?
80:13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of
the field doth devour it.
80:14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from
heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
80:15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the
branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
80:16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the
rebuke of thy countenance.
80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son
of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
80:18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call
upon thy name.
80:19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine;
and we shall be saved.
81:1 Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the
God of Jacob.
81:2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp
with the psaltery.
81:3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on
our solemn feast day.
81:4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of
81:5 This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out
through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language that I
81:6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were
delivered from the pots.
81:7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered
thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the
waters of Meribah. Selah.
81:8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if
thou wilt hearken unto me;
81:9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou
worship any strange god.
81:10 I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of
Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would
none of me.
81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked
in their own counsels.
81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked
in my ways!
81:14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand
against their adversaries.
81:15 The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto
him: but their time should have endured for ever.
81:16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and
with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
82:1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth
among the gods.
82:2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the
82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted
82:4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the
82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in
darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the
82:7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all
83:1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not
still, O God.
83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee
have lifted up the head.
83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and
consulted against thy hidden ones.
83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a
nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are
confederate against thee:
83:6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the
83:7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the
inhabitants of Tyre;
83:8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children
of Lot. Selah.
83:9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to
Jabin, at the brook of Kison:
83:10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their
princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
83:12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in
83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the
83:14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the
mountains on fire;
83:15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with
83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O
83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be
put to shame, and perish:
83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art
the most high over all the earth.
84:1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the
LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest
for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
84:4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still
praising thee. Selah.
84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart
are the ways of them.
84:6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the
rain also filleth the pools.
84:7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion
appeareth before God.
84:8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob.
84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine
84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had
rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell
in the tents of wickedness.
84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace
and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk
84:12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
85:1 Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast
brought back the captivity of Jacob.
85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast
covered all their sin. Selah.
85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself
from the fierceness of thine anger.
85:4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward
us to cease.
85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine
anger to all generations?
85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in
85:7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak
peace unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not
turn again to folly.
85:9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory
may dwell in our land.
85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have
kissed each other.
85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall
look down from heaven.
85:12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land
shall yield her increase.
85:13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way
of his steps.
86:1 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
86:2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy
servant that trusteth in thee.
86:3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
86:4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O
Lord, do I
lift up my soul.
86:5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous
in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
86:6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of
86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt
86:8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O
are there any works like unto thy works.
86:9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before
thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
86:10 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God
86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my
heart to fear thy name.
86:12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I
will glorify thy name for evermore.
86:13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my
soul from the lowest hell.
86:14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of
violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee
86:15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious,
longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
86:16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto
thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
86:17 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it,
and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and
87:1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
87:2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings
87:3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.
87:4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me:
behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born
87:5 And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in
her: and the highest himself shall establish her.
87:6 The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this
man was born there. Selah.
87:7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be
there: all my springs are in thee.
88:1 O lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before
88:2 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
88:3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto
88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a
man that hath no strength:
88:5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave,
whom thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy
88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the
88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with
all thy waves. Selah.
88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast
made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot
88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called
daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.
88:10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and
praise thee? Selah.
88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy
faithfulness in destruction?
88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness
in the land of forgetfulness?
88:13 But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall
my prayer prevent thee.
88:14 LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face
88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I
suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
88:16 Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
88:17 They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me
88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine
acquaintance into darkness.
