90:1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God. LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.
90:3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.
90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are [as] a sleep: in the morning [they are] like grass [which] groweth up.
90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
90:7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
90:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret [sins] in the light of thy countenance.
90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale [that is told].
90:10 The days of our years [are] threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength [they be] fourscore years, yet [is] their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
90:11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, [so is] thy wrath.
90:12 So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply [our] hearts unto wisdom.
90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
90:14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
90:15 Make us glad according to the days [wherein] thou hast afflicted us, [and] the years [wherein] we have seen evil.
90:16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
91:2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence.
91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler.
91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for the arrow [that] flieth by day;
91:6 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday.
91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee.
91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge, [even] the most High, thy habitation;
91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
91:12 They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
92:1 A Psalm [or] Song for the sabbath day. [It is a] good [thing] to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
92:2 To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
92:3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
92:4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! [and] thy thoughts are very deep.
92:6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
92:7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; [it is] that they shall be destroyed for ever:
92:8 But thou, LORD, [art most] high for evermore.
92:9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like [the horn of] an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
92:11 Mine eye also shall see [my desire] on mine enemies, [and] mine ears shall hear [my desire] of the wicked that rise up against me.
92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
92:14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
92:15 To show that the LORD [is] upright: [he is] my rock, and [there is] no unrighteousness in him.
93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, [wherewith] he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
93:2 Thy throne [is] established of old: thou [art] from everlasting.
93:3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
93:4 The LORD on high [is] mightier than the noise of many waters, [yea, than] the mighty waves of the sea.
93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself.
94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
94:4 [How long] shall they utter [and] speak hard things? [and] all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
94:5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
94:7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard [it].
94:8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and [ye] fools, when will ye be wise?
94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, [shall not he know]?
94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they [are] vanity.
94:12 Blessed [is] the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
94:14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
94:15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? [or] who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
94:17 Unless the LORD [had been] my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
94:22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God [is] the rock of my refuge.
94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; [yea], the LORD our God shall cut them off.
95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
95:3 For the LORD [is] a great God, and a great King above all gods.
95:4 In his hand [are] the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills [is] his also.
95:5 The sea [is] his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry [land].
95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
95:7 For he [is] our God; and we [are] the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
95:8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, [and] as [in] the day of temptation in the wilderness:
95:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
95:10 Forty years long was I grieved with [this] generation, and said, It [is] a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
95:11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
96:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
96:2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day.
96:3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
96:4 For the LORD [is] great, and greatly to be praised: he [is] to be feared above all gods.
96:5 For all the gods of the nations [are] idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
96:6 Honour and majesty [are] before him: strength and beauty [are] in his sanctuary.
96:7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
96:8 Give unto the LORD the glory [due unto] his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.
96:9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.
96:10 Say among the heathen [that] the LORD reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.
96:11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
96:12 Let the field be joyful, and all that [is] therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
96:13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
97:1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad [thereof].
97:2 Clouds and darkness [are] round about him: righteousness and judgment [are] the habitation of his throne.
97:3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
97:6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
97:7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all [ye] gods.
97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
97:9 For thou, LORD, [art] high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods.
97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
97:11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
97:12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
98:1 A Psalm. O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the heathen.
98:3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
98:4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
98:5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
98:6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
98:7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
98:8 Let the floods clap [their] hands: let the hills be joyful together
98:9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth [between] the cherubims; let the earth be moved.
99:2 The LORD [is] great in Zion; and he [is] high above all the people.
99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; [for] it [is] holy.
99:4 The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; [for] he [is] holy.
99:6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.
99:7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance [that] he gave them.
99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.
99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God [is] holy.
100:1 A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
100:3 Know ye that the LORD he [is] God: [it is] he [that] hath made us, and not we ourselves; [we are] his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, [and] into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, [and] bless his name.
100:5 For the LORD [is] good; his mercy [is] everlasting; and his truth [endureth] to all generations.
101:1 A Psalm of David. I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
101:2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; [it] shall not cleave to me.
101:4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked [person].
101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
101:6 Mine eyes [shall be] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
102:1 A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the LORD. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day [when] I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day [when] I call answer me speedily.
102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
102:4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
102:7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; [and] they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
102:11 My days [are] like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
102:12 But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
102:13 Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years [are] throughout all generations.
102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens [are] the work of thy hands.
102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
102:27 But thou [art] the same, and thy years shall have no end.
102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
103:1 [A Psalm] of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, [bless] his holy name.
103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
103:4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good [things; so that] thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
103:6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
103:8 The LORD [is] merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
103:9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep [his anger] for ever.
103:10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, [so] great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
103:12 As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
103:13 Like as a father pitieth [his] children, [so] the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we [are] dust.
103:15 [As for] man, his days [are] as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
103:16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
103:17 But the mercy of the LORD [is] from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
103:18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
103:19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
103:21 Bless ye the LORD, all [ye] his hosts; [ye] ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
103:22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
104:2 Who coverest [thyself] with light as [with] a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
104:5 [Who] laid the foundations of the earth, [that] it should not be removed for ever.
104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as [with] a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, [which] run among the hills.
104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
104:12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, [which] sing among the branches.
104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
104:15 And wine [that] maketh glad the heart of man, [and] oil to make [his] face to shine, and bread [which] strengtheneth man's heart.
104:16 The trees of the LORD are full [of sap]; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
104:17 Where the birds make their nests: [as for] the stork, the fir trees [are] her house.
104:18 The high hills [are] a refuge for the wild goats; [and] the rocks for the conies.
104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep [forth].
104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
104:22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
104:25 [So is] this great and wide sea, wherein [are] things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
104:26 There go the ships: [there is] that leviathan, [whom] thou hast made to play therein.
104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give [them] their meat in due season.
104:28 [That] thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
105:7 He [is] the LORD our God: his judgments [are] in all the earth.
105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word [which] he commanded to a thousand generations.
105:9 Which [covenant] he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, [and] to Israel [for] an everlasting covenant:
105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
105:12 When they were [but] a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.
105:13 When they went from one nation to another, from [one] kingdom to another people;
105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
105:15 [Saying], Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
105:16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.
105:17 He sent a man before them, [even] Joseph, [who] was sold for a servant:
105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.
105:20 The king sent and loosed him; [even] the ruler of the people, and let him go free.
105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.
105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
105:24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.
105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtly with his servants.
105:26 He sent Moses his servant; [and] Aaron whom he had chosen.
105:27 They showed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.
105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.
105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, [and] lice in all their coasts.
105:32 He gave them hail for rain, [and] flaming fire in their land.
105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.
105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillars, and that without number,
105:35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.
105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and [there was] not one feeble [person] among their tribes.
105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.
105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.
105:40 [The people] asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places [like] a river.
105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, [and] Abraham his servant.
105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, [and] his chosen with gladness:
105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;
105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.
106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? [who] can show forth all his praise?
106:3 Blessed [are] they that keep judgment, [and] he that doeth righteousness at all times.
106:4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour [that thou bearest unto] thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked [him] at the sea, [even] at the Red sea.
106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated [them], and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, [and] Aaron the saint of the LORD.
106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
106:20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.
106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [and] terrible things by the Red sea.
106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy [them].
106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:
106:25 But murmured in their tents, [and] hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.
106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
106:29 Thus they provoked [him] to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and [so] the plague was stayed.
106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.
106:32 They angered [him] also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:
106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
106:36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
106:38 And shed innocent blood, [even] the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.
106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.
106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked [him] with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:
106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, [and] to triumph in thy praise.
106:48 Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
107:1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say [so], whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
107:3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he delivered them out of their distresses.
107:7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
107:8 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
107:10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, [being] bound in affliction and iron;
107:11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
107:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and [there was] none to help.
107:13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saved them out of their distresses.
107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
107:15 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
107:17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
107:18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
107:19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, [and] he saveth them out of their distresses.
107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered [them] from their destructions.
107:21 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
107:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
107:24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
107:25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
107:26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
107:27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.
107:28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
107:29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
107:30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
107:31 Oh that [men] would praise the LORD [for] his goodness, and [for] his wonderful works to the children of men!
107:32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
107:33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
107:35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
107:36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
107:37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
107:38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
107:39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
107:40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, [where there is] no way.
107:41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh [him] families like a flock.
107:42 The righteous shall see [it], and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
107:43 Whoso [is] wise, and will observe these [things], even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
108:1 A Song [or] Psalm of David. O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself] will awake early.
108:3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
108:4 For thy mercy [is] great above the heavens: and thy truth [reacheth] unto the clouds.
108:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
108:6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save [with] thy right hand, and answer me.
108:7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
108:8 Gilead [is] mine; Manasseh [is] mine; Ephraim also [is] the strength of mine head; Judah [is] my lawgiver;
108:9 Moab [is] my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
108:10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
108:11 [Wilt] not [thou], O God, [who] hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
108:12 Give us help from trouble: for vain [is] the help of man.
108:13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he [it is that] shall tread down our enemies.
109:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
109:2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
109:3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
109:4 For my love they are my adversaries: but I [give myself unto] prayer.
109:5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
109:7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
109:8 Let his days be few; [and] let another take his office.
109:9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
109:10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek [their bread] also out of their desolate places.
109:11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.
109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; [and] in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
109:16 Because that he remembered not to show mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
109:17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
109:18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
109:19 Let it be unto him as the garment [which] covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
109:20 [Let] this [be] the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy [is] good, deliver thou me.
109:22 For I [am] poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.
109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
109:25 I became also a reproach unto them: [when] they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
109:26 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
109:27 That they may know that this [is] thy hand; [that] thou, LORD, hast done it.
109:28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.
109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save [him] from those that condemn his soul.
110:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
110:3 Thy people [shall be] willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
110:5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
110:6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill [the places] with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
110:7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
111:1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with [my] whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and [in] the congregation.
111:2 The works of the LORD [are] great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
111:3 His work [is] honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD [is] gracious and full of compassion.
111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
111:6 He hath showed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
111:7 The works of his hands [are] verity and judgment; all his commandments [are] sure.
111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, [and are] done in truth and uprightness.
111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend [is] his name.
111:10 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.
112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth the LORD, [that] delighteth greatly in his commandments.
112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
112:3 Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: [he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
112:5 A good man showeth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
112:8 His heart [is] established, he shall not be afraid, until he see [his desire] upon his enemies.
112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
112:10 The wicked shall see [it], and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name [is] to be praised.
113:4 The LORD [is] high above all nations, [and] his glory above the heavens.
113:5 Who [is] like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
113:6 Who humbleth [himself] to behold [the things that are] in heaven, and in the earth!
113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, [and] lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
113:8 That he may set [him] with princes, [even] with the princes of his people.
113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, [and to be] a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, [and] Israel his dominion.
114:3 The sea saw [it], and fled: Jordan was driven back.
114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, [and] the little hills like lambs.
114:5 What [ailed] thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, [that] thou wast driven back?
114:6 Ye mountains, [that] ye skipped like rams; [and] ye little hills, like lambs?
114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
114:8 Which turned the rock [into] a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, [and] for thy truth's sake.
115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] now their God?
115:3 But our God [is] in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
115:4 Their idols [are] silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
115:8 They that make them are like unto them; [so is] every one that trusteth in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he [is] their help and their shield.
115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he [is] their help and their shield.
115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he [is] their help and their shield.
115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless [us]; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, [both] small and great.
115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
115:15 Ye [are] blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heaven, [even] the heavens, [are] the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice [and] my supplications.
116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon [him] as long as I live.
116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
116:5 Gracious [is] the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God [is] merciful.
116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, [and] my feet from falling.
116:9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
116:11 I said in my haste, All men [are] liars.
116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD [for] all his benefits toward me?
116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
116:14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD [is] the death of his saints.
116:16 O LORD, truly I [am] thy servant; I [am] thy servant, [and] the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
116:18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
116:19 In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
117:1 O Praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD [endureth] for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: because his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, [and set me] in a large place.
118:6 The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
118:7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see [my desire] upon them that hate me.
118:8 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
118:9 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:12 They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
118:14 The LORD [is] my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation [is] in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, [and] I will praise the LORD:
118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner.
118:23 This is the LORD'S doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes.
118:24 This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
118:26 Blessed [be] he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
118:27 God [is] the LORD, which hath showed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, [even] unto the horns of the altar.
118:28 Thou [art] my God, and I will praise thee: [thou art] my God, I will exalt thee.
118:29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
119:1 ALEPH. Blessed [are] the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
119:2 Blessed [are] they that keep his testimonies, [and that] seek him with the whole heart.
119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
119:4 Thou hast commanded [us] to keep thy precepts diligently.
119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
119:9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed [thereto] according to thy word.
119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
119:12 Blessed [art] thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as [much as] in all riches.
119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
119:17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, [that] I may live, and keep thy word.
119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
119:19 I [am] a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
119:20 My soul breaketh for the longing [that it hath] unto thy judgments at all times.
119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud [that are] cursed, which do err from thy commandments.
119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.
119:23 Princes also did sit [and] speak against me: [but] thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
119:24 Thy testimonies also [are] my delight [and] my counsellors.
119:25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
119:26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.
119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid [before me].
119:31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
119:33 HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it [unto] the end.
119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with [my] whole heart.
119:35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; [and] quicken thou me in thy way.
119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who [is devoted] to thy fear.
119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments [are] good.
119:40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.
119:41 VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, [even] thy salvation, according to thy word.
119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
119:48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
119:49 ZAIN. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
119:50 This [is] my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: [yet] have I not declined from thy law.
119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.
119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.
119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.
119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.
119:57 CHETH. [Thou art] my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.
119:58 I entreated thy favour with [my] whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: [but] I have not forgotten thy law.
119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.
119:63 I [am] a companion of all [them] that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.
119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.
119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.
119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
119:68 Thou [art] good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: [but] I will keep thy precepts with [my] whole heart.
119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; [but] I delight in thy law.
119:71 [It is] good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
119:72 The law of thy mouth [is] better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
119:73 JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments [are] right, and [that] thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.
119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law [is] my delight.
119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: [but] I will meditate in thy precepts.
119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.
119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.
119:81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: [but] I hope in thy word.
119:82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; [yet] do I not forget thy statutes.
119:84 How many [are] the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which [are] not after thy law.
119:86 All thy commandments [are] faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.
119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.
119:88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.
119:89 LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
119:90 Thy faithfulness [is] unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all [are] thy servants.
119:92 Unless thy law [had been] my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
119:94 I [am] thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: [but] I will consider thy testimonies.
119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: [but] thy commandment [is] exceeding broad.
119:97 MEM. O how love I thy law! it [is] my meditation all the day.
119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they [are] ever with me.
119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies [are] my meditation.
119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.
119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! [yea, sweeter] than honey to my mouth!
119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
119:105 NUN. Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform [it], that I will keep thy righteous judgments.
119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.
119:109 My soul [is] continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they [are] the rejoicing of my heart.
119:112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, [even unto] the end.
119:113 SAMECH. I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love.
119:114 Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.
119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.
119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit [is] falsehood.
119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like] dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.
119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.
119:121 AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.
119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.
119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
119:124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
119:125 I [am] thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
119:126 [It is] time for [thee], LORD, to work: [for] they have made void thy law.
119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
119:128 Therefore I esteem all [thy] precepts [concerning] all [things to be] right; [and] I hate every false way.
119:129 PE. Thy testimonies [are] wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.
119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.
119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.
119:137 TZADDI. Righteous [art] thou, O LORD, and upright [are] thy judgments.
119:138 Thy testimonies [that] thou hast commanded [are] righteous and very faithful.
119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.
119:140 Thy word [is] very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
119:141 I [am] small and despised: [yet] do not I forget thy precepts.
119:142 Thy righteousness [is] an everlasting righteousness, and thy law [is] the truth.
119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: [yet] thy commandments [are] my delights.
119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies [is] everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
119:145 KOPH. I cried with [my] whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy statutes.

119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.
119:148 Mine eyes prevent the [night] watches, that I might meditate in thy word.
119:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.
119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.
119:151 Thou [art] near, O LORD; and all thy commandments [are] truth.
119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.
119:153 RESH. Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
119:155 Salvation [is] far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.

119:157 Many [are] my persecutors and mine enemies; [yet] do I not decline from thy testimonies.
119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.
119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
119:160 Thy word [is] true [from] the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments [endureth] for ever.
119:161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
119:163 I hate and abhor lying: [but] thy law do I love.
119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.
119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

120:1 A Song of degrees. In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
120:2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, [and] from a deceitful tongue.
120:3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
120:4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, [that] I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
120:7 I [am for] peace: but when I speak, they [are] for war.
121:1 A Song of degrees. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
121:2 My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5 The LORD [is] thy keeper: the LORD [is] thy shade upon thy right hand.
121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
122:1 A Song of degrees of David. I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
122:2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
122:3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
122:4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
122:5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
122:7 Peace be within thy walls, [and] prosperity within thy palaces.
122:8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace [be] within thee.
122:9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
123:1 A Song of degrees. Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
123:2 Behold, as the eyes of servants [look] unto the hand of their masters, [and] as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes [wait] upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
123:4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, [and] with the contempt of the proud.
124:1 A Song of degrees of David. If [it had not been] the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
124:2 If [it had not been] the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
124:3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
124:4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
124:5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
124:6 Blessed [be] the LORD, who hath not given us [as] a prey to their teeth.
124:7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
124:8 Our help [is] in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
125:1 A Song of degrees. They that trust in the LORD [shall be] as mount Zion, [which] cannot be removed, [but] abideth for ever.
125:2 As the mountains [are] round about Jerusalem, so the LORD [is] round about his people from henceforth even for ever.
125:3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.
125:4 Do good, O LORD, unto [those that be] good, and [to them that are] upright in their hearts.
125:5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: [but] peace [shall be] upon Israel.
126:1 A Song of degrees. When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
126:2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.
126:3 The LORD hath done great things for us; [whereof] we are glad.
126:4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves [with him].
127:1 A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh [but] in vain.
127:2 [It is] vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: [for] so he giveth his beloved sleep.
127:3 Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward.
127:4 As arrows [are] in the hand of a mighty man; so [are] children of the youth.
127:5 Happy [is] the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
128:1 A Song of degrees. Blessed [is] every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
128:2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy [shalt] thou [be], and [it shall be] well with thee.
128:3 Thy wife [shall be] as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
128:4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.
128:5 The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
128:6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, [and] peace upon Israel.
129:1 A Song of degrees. Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:
129:2 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
129:3 The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.
129:4 The LORD [is] righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
129:5 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.
129:6 Let them be as the grass [upon] the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:
129:7 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.
129:8 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD [be] upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.
130:1 A Song of degrees. Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
130:2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
130:4 But [there is] forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
130:6 My soul [waiteth] for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: [I say, more than] they that watch for the morning.
130:7 Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD [there is] mercy, and with him [is] plenteous redemption.
130:8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
131:1 A Song of degrees of David. LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.
131:2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child.
131:3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.
132:1 A Song of degrees. LORD, remember David, [and] all his afflictions:
132:2 How he sware unto the LORD, [and] vowed unto the mighty [God] of Jacob;
132:3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;
132:4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, [or] slumber to mine eyelids,
132:5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty [God] of Jacob.
132:6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.
132:7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.
132:8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.
132:9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.
132:10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.
132:11 The LORD hath sworn [in] truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
132:12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.
132:13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired [it] for his habitation.
132:14 This [is] my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.
132:15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
132:16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.
132:17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.
132:18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
133:1 A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant [it is] for brethren to dwell together in unity!
133:2 [It is] like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, [even] Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
133:3 As the dew of Hermon, [and as the dew] that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, [even] life for evermore.
134:1 A Song of degrees. Behold, bless ye the LORD, all [ye] servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD.
134:2 Lift up your hands [in] the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.
134:3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
135:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise [him], O ye servants of the LORD.
135:2 Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God,
135:3 Praise the LORD; for the LORD [is] good: sing praises unto his name; for [it is] pleasant.
135:4 For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, [and] Israel for his peculiar treasure.
135:5 For I know that the LORD [is] great, and [that] our Lord [is] above all gods.
135:6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, [that] did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
135:7 He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
135:8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
135:9 [Who] sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
135:10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;
135:11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:
135:12 And gave their land [for] an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.
135:13 Thy name, O LORD, [endureth] for ever; [and] thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.
135:14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent himself concerning his servants.
135:15 The idols of the heathen [are] silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
135:16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
135:17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there [any] breath in their mouths.
135:18 They that make them are like unto them: [so is] every one that trusteth in them.
135:19 Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of Aaron:
135:20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless the LORD.
135:21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
136:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:4 To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.
