1:1 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the unGodly, nor standeth like the sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
1:2 But his delight [is] in The Law of the "I AM"; and in His Law doth he meditate day and night.
1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
1:4 The unGodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
1:5 Therefore the unGodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
1:6 For the "I AM" knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the unGodly shall perish.
2:1 Why do the unenlightened rage, and the people imagine a futile thing?
2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the "I AM", and against His Anointed, (2 Esd. 13:34) [saying],
2:3 Let us break Their bonds asunder, and cast away Their cords from us.
2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall make fools of them.
2:5 Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and terrify them in His fury.
2:6 Yet have I set My King (to govern - Isa. 9:6-7) upon My Holy Hill of Gathering (Isa. 33:16; 2 Esd. 13:35).
2:7 I will declare the decree: the "I AM" hath said unto me, Thou [art] My Son; this day have I created for thee.
2:8 Ask of Me, and I shall give [thee] the unenlightened [for] thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth [for] thy possession.
2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel (Rev. 12:5).
2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
2:11 Serve the "I AM" with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
2:12 Kiss My Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish [from] The Way, when his wrath is kindled just a little (Luke 19:27). Blessed [are] all they that put their trust in him.
3:1 <A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son.> "I AM", how are they increased that trouble me! Many [are] they that rise up against me.
3:2 Many [there be] which say of my soul, [There is] no help for him in God. The rock.
3:3 But Thou, O "I AM", [art] a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
3:4 I cried unto the "I AM" with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. The rock.
3:5 I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the "I AM" sustained me.
3:6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set [themselves] against me round about.
3:7 Arise, O "I AM"; save me, O my God: for Thou hast smitten all mine enemies [upon] the cheek bone; Thou hast broken the teeth of the unGodly.
3:8 Salvation [belongeth] unto the "I AM": Thy blessing [is] upon Thy people. The rock.
4:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.> Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: Thou hast enlarged me [when I was] in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
4:2 O ye sons of men, how long [will ye turn] my glory into shame? [How long] will ye love vanity, [and] seek after lies? The rock.
4:3 But know that the "I AM" hath set apart him that is Godly for Himself: the "I AM" will hear when I call unto Him.
4:4 Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. The rock.
4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the "I AM".
4:6 [There be] many that say, Who will show us [any] good? "I AM", lift Thou up the Light of Thy countenance upon us.
4:7 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time [that] their corn and their wine increased.
4:8 I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for Thou, "I AM", only makest me dwell in safety.
5:1 <To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David.> Give ear to my words, O "I AM", consider my meditation.
5:2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto Thee will I pray.
5:3 My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning, O "I AM"; in the morning will I direct [my prayer] unto Thee, and will look up.
5:4 For Thou [art] not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with Thee.
5:5 The foolish shall not stand in Thy sight: Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
5:6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies: the "I AM" will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
5:7 But as for me, I will come [into] Thy house in the multitude of Thy mercy: [and] in Thy fear will I worship toward Thy holy Temple.
5:8 Lead me, O "I AM", in Thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make Thy Way straight before my face.
5:9 For [there is] no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part [is] very wickedness; their throat [is] an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
5:10 Destroy Thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against Thee.
5:11 But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because Thou defendest them: let them also that love Thy name be joyful in Thee.
5:12 For Thou, "I AM", wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt Thou compass him as [with] a shield.
6:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.> O "I AM", rebuke me not in Thine anger, neither chasten me in Thy hot displeasure.
6:2 Have mercy upon me, O "I AM"; for I [am] weak: O "I AM", heal me; for my bones are vexed.
6:3 My soul is also sore vexed: but Thou, O "I AM", how long?
6:4 Return, O "I AM", deliver my soul: oh save me for Thy mercies' sake.
6:5 For in death [there is] no remembrance of Thee: in the grave who shall give Thee thanks?
6:6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
6:7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
6:8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the "I AM" hath heard the voice of my weeping.
6:9 The "I AM" hath heard my supplication; the "I AM" will receive my prayer.
6:10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return [and] be ashamed suddenly.
7:1 <Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the "I AM", concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.> O "I AM" my God, in Thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
7:2 Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending [it] in pieces, while [there is] none to deliver.
7:3 O "I AM" my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
7:4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
7:5 Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take [it]; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. The rock.
7:6 Arise, O "I AM", in Thine anger, lift up Thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me [to] the judgment [that] Thou hast commanded.
7:7 So shall the congregation of the people compass Thee about: for their sakes therefore return Thou on high.
7:8 The "I AM" shall judge the people: judge me, O "I AM", according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity [that is] in me.
7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
7:10 My defence [is] from God, Which saveth the upright in heart.
7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry [with the wicked] every day.
7:12 If he turn not, He will whet His sword; He hath bent His bow, and made it ready.
7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; He ordaineth His arrows against the persecutors.
7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood.
7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch [which] he made.
7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
7:17 I will praise the "I AM" according to His righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the "I AM" most high.
8:1 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.> O "I AM" our Lord, how excellent [is] Thy name in all the earth! Who hast set Thy glory above the heavens.
8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast Thou ordained strength because of Thine enemies, that Thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
8:3 When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained;
8:4 What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that Thou visitest him?
8:5 For Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all [things] under his feet:
8:7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8:8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, [and whatsoever] passeth through the paths of the seas.
8:9 O "I AM" our Lord, how excellent [is] Thy name in all the earth!
9:1 <To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben, A Psalm of David.> I will praise [Thee], O "I AM", with my whole heart; I will show forth all Thy marvellous works.
9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in Thee: I will sing praise to Thy name, O Thou most High.
9:3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at Thy presence.
9:4 For Thou hast maintained my right and my cause; Thou satest in the Throne judging Right.
9:5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
9:6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.
9:7 But the "I AM" shall endure for ever: He hath prepared His Throne for Judgment.
9:8 And He shall judge the world in Righteousness, He shall minister Judgment to the people in uprightness.
9:9 The "I AM" also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.
9:10 And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee: for Thou, "I AM", hast not forsaken them that seek Thee.
9:11 Sing praises to the "I AM", Which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people His doings.
9:12 When He maketh inquisition for blood, He remembereth them: He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.
9:13 Have mercy upon me, O "I AM"; consider my trouble [which I suffer] of them that hate me, Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
9:14 That I may show forth all Thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in Thy salvation.
9:15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit [that] they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
9:16 The "I AM" is known [by] the Judgment [which] He executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. The rock.
9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
9:18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall [not] perish for ever.
9:19 Arise, O "I AM"; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in Thy sight.
9:20 Put them in fear, O "I AM": [that] the nations may know themselves [to be but] men. The rock.
10:1 Why standest Thou afar off, O "I AM"? [why] hidest Thou [Thyself] in times of trouble?
10:2 The wicked in [his] pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.
10:3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, [whom] the "I AM" abhorreth.
10:4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek [after God]: God [is] not in any of his thoughts.
10:5 His ways are always grievous; Thy Judgments [are] far above out of his sight: [as for] all his enemies, he puffeth at them.
10:6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for [I shall] never [be] in adversity.
10:7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue [is] mischief and vanity.
10:8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.
10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.
10:10 He croucheth, [and] humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones.
10:11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: He hideth His face; He will never see [it].
10:12 Arise, O "I AM"; O God, lift up Thine hand: forget not the humble.
10:13 Wherefore doth the wicked have contempt for God? He hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require [it].
10:14 Thou hast seen [it]; for Thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite [it] with Thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto Thee; Thou art the helper of the fatherless.
10:15 Break Thou the arm of the wicked and the evil [man]: seek out his wickedness [till] Thou find none.
10:16 The "I AM" [is] King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of His land.
10:17 "I AM", Thou hast heard the desire of the humble: Thou wilt prepare their heart, Thou wilt cause Thine ear to hear:
10:18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.
11:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David.> In the "I AM" put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee [as] a bird to your mountain?
11:2 For, lo, the wicked bend [their] bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
11:4 The "I AM" [is] in His Holy Temple, the "I AM"'s Throne [is] in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men.
11:5 The "I AM" trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth.
11:6 Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: [this shall be] the portion of their cup.
11:7 For the righteous "I AM" loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold the upright.
12:1 <To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.> Help, "I AM"; for the Godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.
12:2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: [with] flattering lips [and] with a double heart do they speak.
12:3 The "I AM" shall cut off all flattering lips, [and] the tongue that speaketh proud things:
12:4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips [are] our own: who [is] lord over us?
12:5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the "I AM"; I will set [him] in safety [from him that] puffeth at him.
12:6 The Words of the "I AM" [are] pure words: [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O "I AM", Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
12:8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.
13:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> How long wilt Thou forget me, O "I AM"? For ever? How long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me?
13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, [having] sorrow in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
13:3 Consider [and] hear me, O "I AM" my God: Lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the [sleep of] death;
13:4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; [and] those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
13:5 But I have trusted in Thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation.
13:6 I will sing unto the "I AM", because He hath dealt bountifully with me.
14:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David.> The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, [there is] none that doeth good.
14:2 The "I AM" looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, [and] seek God.
14:3 They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people [as] they eat bread, and call not upon the "I AM".
14:5 There were they in great fear: for God [is] in the generation of the righteous.
14:6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the "I AM" [is] his refuge.
14:7 Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! When the "I AM" bringeth back the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.
15:1 <A Psalm of David.> "I AM", who shall abide in Thy Tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy Holy Hill?
15:2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the Truth in his heart.
15:3 [He that] backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
15:4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemptible; but he honoureth them that fear the "I AM". [He that] sweareth to [his own] hurt, and changeth not.
15:5 [He that] putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these [things] shall never be moved.
16:1 <Michtam of David.> Preserve me, O God: for in Thee do I put my trust.
16:2 [O my soul], thou hast said unto the "I AM", Thou [art] my Lord: my goodness [extendeth] not to Thee;
16:3 [But] to the holy ones that [are] in the earth, and [to] the excellent, in whom [is] all my delight.
16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after] another [god]: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
16:5 The "I AM" [is] the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot.
16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant [places]; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
16:7 I will bless the "I AM", Who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
16:8 I have set the "I AM" always before me: because [He is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
16:10 For Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell (planet Earth); neither wilt Thou suffer Thine Holy One to see corruption.
16:11 Thou wilt show me the path of Life: in Thy presence [is] fulness of joy; at Thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.
17:1 <A Prayer of David.> Hear the right, O "I AM", attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, [that goeth] not out of feigned lips.
17:2 Let my sentence come forth from Thy presence; let Thine eyes behold the things that are equal.
17:3 Thou hast proved mine heart; Thou hast visited [me] in the night; Thou hast tried me, [and] shalt find nothing; I am purposed [that] my mouth shall not transgress.
17:4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept [me from] the paths of the destroyer (Satan).
17:5 Hold up my goings in Thy Ways, [that] my footsteps slip not.
17:6 I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt hear me, O God: incline Thine ear unto me, [and hear] my speech.
17:7 Show Thy marvellous lovingkindness, O Thou that savest by Thy right hand them which put their trust [in Thee] from those that rise up [against them].
17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of Thy wings,
17:9 From the wicked that oppress me, [from] my deadly enemies, [who] compass me about.
17:10 They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
17:11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
17:12 Like as a lion [that] is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
17:13 Arise, O "I AM", disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, [which is] Thy sword:
17:14 From men [which are] Thy hand, O "I AM", from men of the world, [which have] their portion in [this] life, and whose belly Thou fillest with Thy hid [treasure]: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their [substance] to their babes.
17:15 As for me, I will behold Thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Thy likeness.
18:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David, the servant of the "I AM", who spoke unto the "I AM" the words of this song in the day [that] the "I AM" delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said,> I will love Thee, O "I AM", my strength.
18:2 The "I AM" [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in Whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower.
18:3 I will call upon the "I AM", [Who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of unGodly men made me afraid.
18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
18:6 In my distress I called upon the "I AM", and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of His Temple, and my cry came before Him, [even] into His ears.
18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because He was wroth.
18:8 There went up a smoke out of His nostrils, and fire out of His mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
18:9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness [was] under His feet.
18:10 And He rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, He did fly upon the wings of the wind.
18:11 He made darkness His secret place; His pavilion round about Him [were] dark waters [and] thick clouds of the skies.
18:12 At the brightness [that was] before Him His thick clouds passed, hail [stones] and coals of fire.
18:13 The "I AM" also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave His voice; hail [stones] and coals of fire.
18:14 Yea, He sent out His arrows, and scattered them; and He shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
18:15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at Thy rebuke, O "I AM", at the blast of the breath of Thy nostrils.
18:16 He sent from above, He took me, He drew me out of many waters.
18:17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
18:18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the "I AM" was my stay.
18:19 He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me.
18:20 The "I AM" rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath He recompensed me.
18:21 For I have kept The Ways of the "I AM", and have not wickedly departed from my God.
18:22 For all His Judgments [were] before me, and I did not put away His Statutes from me.
18:23 I was also upright before Him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
18:24 Therefore hath the "I AM" recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His eyesight.
18:25 With the merciful Thou wilt show Thyself merciful; with an upright man Thou wilt show Thyself upright;
18:26 With the pure Thou wilt show Thyself pure; and with the froward Thou wilt show Thyself froward.
18:27 For Thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
18:28 For Thou wilt light my candle: the "I AM" my God will enlighten my darkness.
18:29 For by Thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
18:30 [As for] God, His Way [is] Perfect: the Word of the "I AM" is tried: He [is] a buckler to all those that trust in Him.
18:31 For who [is] God except the "I AM"? Or who [is] a rock except our God?
18:32 [It is] God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
18:33 He maketh my feet like hinds' [feet], and setteth me upon my high places.
18:34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation: and Thy right hand hath holden me up, and Thy gentleness hath made me great.
18:36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
18:37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
18:38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
18:39 For Thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: Thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
18:40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
18:41 They cried, but [there was] none to save [them: even] unto the "I AM", but He answered them not.
18:42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
18:43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; [and] Thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people [whom] I have not known shall serve me.
18:44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
18:45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
18:46 The "I AM" Liveth; and blessed [be] my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
18:47 [It is] God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
18:48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, Thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: Thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto Thee, O "I AM", among the heathen, and sing praises unto Thy name.
18:50 Great deliverance giveth He to His king; and showeth mercy to His anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
19:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handywork.
19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
19:3 [There is] no speech nor language, [where] their voice is not heard.
19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a Tabernacle for the sun,
19:5 Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
19:6 His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and His circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
19:7 The Law of the "I AM" [is] Perfect, converting the soul: The Covenant of the "I AM" [is] sure, making wise the simple.
19:8 The Statutes of the "I AM" [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the Commandment of the "I AM" [is] pure, enlightening the eyes.
19:9 The fear of the "I AM" [is] clean, enduring for ever: the Judgments of the "I AM" [are] True [and] Righteous altogether.
19:10 More to be desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
19:11 Moreover by them is Thy servant warned: [and] in keeping of them [there is] great reward.
19:12 Who can understand [his] errors? Cleanse Thou me from secret [faults].
19:13 Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous [sins]; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Thy sight, O "I AM", my strength, and my redeemer.
20:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The "I AM" hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
20:2 Send thee help from the Sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;
20:3 Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; The rock.
20:4 Grant thee according to thine own heart, and fulfil all thy counsel.
20:5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up [our] banners: the "I AM" fulfil all thy petitions.
20:6 Now know I that the "I AM" saveth His anointed; He will hear him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.
20:7 Some [trust] in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the "I AM" our God.
20:8 They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.
20:9 Save, "I AM": let the King hear us when we call.
21:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> The king shall joy in Thy strength, O "I AM"; and in Thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
21:2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. The rock.
21:3 For Thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: Thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
21:4 He asked life of Thee, [and] Thou gavest [it] him, [even] length of days for ever and ever.
21:5 His glory [is] great in Thy salvation: honour and majesty hast Thou laid upon him.
21:6 For Thou hast made him most blessed for ever: Thou hast made him exceeding glad with Thy countenance.
21:7 For the king trusteth in the "I AM", and through the mercy of The Most High he shall not be moved.
21:8 Thine hand shall find out all Thine enemies: Thy right hand shall find out those that hate Thee.
21:9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of Thine anger: the "I AM" shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
21:10 Their fruit shalt Thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
21:11 For they intended evil against Thee: they imagined a mischievous device, [which] they are not able [to perform].
21:12 Therefore shalt Thou make them turn their back, [when] Thou shalt make ready [Thine arrows] upon Thy strings against the face of them.
21:13 Be Thou exalted, "I AM", in Thine Own strength: [so] will we sing and praise Thy power.
Psalm 22 (see Matthew 27)
22:1 <To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David.> My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? [Why art Thou so] far from helping me, [and from] the words of my roaring?
22:2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but Thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
22:3 But Thou [art] holy, [O Thou] that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
22:4 Our fathers trusted in Thee: they trusted, and Thou didst deliver them.
22:5 They cried unto Thee, and were delivered: they trusted in Thee, and were not confounded.
22:6 But I [am] a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised by the people.
22:7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, [saying],
22:8 He trusted on the "I AM" [that] He would deliver him: let Him deliver him, seeing He delighted in him.
22:9 But Thou [art] He that took me out of the womb: Thou didst make me hope [when I was] upon my mother's breasts.
22:10 I was cast upon Thee from the womb: Thou [art] my God from my mother's belly.
22:11 Be not far from me; for trouble [is] near; for [there is] none to help.
22:12 Many bulls have compassed me: strong [bulls] of Bashan have beset me round.
22:13 They gaped upon me [with] their mouths, [as] a ravening and a roaring lion.
22:14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
22:15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and Thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
22:16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.
22:17 I may tell all my bones: they look [and] stare upon me.
22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
22:19 But be not Thou far from me, O "I AM": O my strength, haste Thee to help me.
22:20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my only one from the power of the dog.
22:21 Save me from the lion's mouth: for Thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
22:22 I will declare Thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.
22:23 Ye that fear the "I AM", praise Him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and fear Him, all ye the seed of Israel.
22:24 For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard.
22:25 My praise [shall be] of Thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.
22:26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the "I AM" [they] that seek Him: your heart shall live for ever.
22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the "I AM": and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee.
22:28 For the Kingdom [is] the "I AM"'s: and He [is] the Governor among the nations (of this prison planet).
22:29 All [they that be] fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him: and none can keep alive his own soul.
22:30 A seed shall serve Him; it (the human body Jesus) shall be accounted to the Lord (Christ) for a generation (40 years).
22:31 They shall come, and shall declare His Righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that He hath done [this].
23:1 <A Psalm of David.> The "I AM" [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.
23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
23:3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in The Way of righteousness for His name's sake.
23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou [art] with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in The House of the "I AM" for ever.
24:1 <A Psalm of David.> The earth [is] the "I AM"'s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
24:2 For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the "I AM"? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?
24:4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the "I AM", and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
24:6 This [is] the generation of them that seek Him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. The rock.
24:7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:8 Who [is] this King of glory? The "I AM" strong and mighty, the "I AM" mighty in battle.
24:9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift [them] up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.
24:10 Who is this King of glory? The "I AM" Lord of hosts, He [is] the King of glory. The rock.
25:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Unto Thee, O "I AM", do I lift up my soul (Being).
25:2 O my God, I trust in Thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
25:3 Yea, let none that wait on Thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
25:4 Show me Thy Ways, O "I AM"; teach me Thy Ways.
25:5 Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me: for Thou [art] the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day.
25:6 Remember, O "I AM", Thy tender mercies and Thy lovingkindnesses; for they [have been] for ever from of old.
25:7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to Thy mercy remember Thou me for Thy goodness' sake, O "I AM".
25:8 Good and upright [is] the "I AM": therefore will He teach sinners about The Way.
25:9 The meek will He guide in Judgment: and the meek will He teach His Way.
25:10 All the paths of the "I AM" [are] mercy and truth unto such as keep His Covenant and His Testimonies.
25:11 For Thy name's sake, O "I AM", pardon mine iniquity; for it [is] great.
25:12 What man [is] he that feareth the "I AM"? Him shall He teach in the way [that] He shall choose.
25:13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
25:14 The secret of the "I AM" [is] with them that fear Him; and He will show them His Covenant.
25:15 Mine eyes [are] ever toward the "I AM"; for He shall pluck my feet out of the net.
25:16 Turn Thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I [am] desolate and afflicted.
25:17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: [O] bring Thou me out of my distresses.
25:18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
25:19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
25:20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in Thee.
25:21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on Thee.
25:22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
26:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Judge me, O "I AM"; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the "I AM"; [therefore] I shall not slide.
26:2 Examine me, O "I AM", and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
26:3 For Thy lovingkindness [is] before mine eyes: and I have walked in Thy Truth.
26:4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
26:5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
26:6 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass Thine Altar, O "I AM":
26:7 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Thy wondrous works.
26:8 "I AM", I have loved the habitation of Thy House, and the Place where Thine honour dwelleth.
26:9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
26:10 In whose hands [is] mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
26:11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
26:12 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the "I AM".
27:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> The "I AM" [is] my Light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The "I AM" [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
27:2 When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident.
27:4 One [thing] have I desired of the "I AM", that will I seek after; that I may dwell in The House of the "I AM" all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the "I AM", and to enquire in His Temple.
27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His Tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock.
27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in His Tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the "I AM".
27:7 Hear, O "I AM", [when] I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
27:8 [When Thou saidst], Seek ye my face; my heart said unto Thee, Thy face, "I AM", will I seek.
27:9 Hide not Thy face [far] from me; put not Thy servant away in anger: Thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the "I AM" will take me up.
27:11 Teach me Thy Way, O "I AM", and lead me in a Clear Way, because of mine enemies.
27:12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
27:13 [I had fainted], unless I had believed to see the goodness of the "I AM" in the land of the living.
27:14 Wait on the "I AM": be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the "I AM".
28:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Unto Thee will I cry, O "I AM" my rock; be not silent to me: lest, [if] Thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto Thee, when I lift up my hands toward Thy Holy Oracle.
28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief [is] in their hearts.
28:4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
28:5 Because they regard not the works of the "I AM", nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them, and not build them up.
28:6 Blessed [be] the "I AM", because He hath heard the voice of my supplications.
28:7 The "I AM" [is] my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.
28:8 The "I AM" [is] their strength, and He [is] the saving strength of His anointed.
28:9 Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
29:1 <A Psalm of David.> Give unto the "I AM", O ye mighty, give unto the "I AM" glory and strength.
29:2 Give unto the "I AM" the glory due unto His name; worship the "I AM" in the beauty of holiness.
29:3 The voice of the "I AM" [is] upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the "I AM" [is] upon many waters.
29:4 The voice of the "I AM" [is] powerful; the voice of the "I AM" [is] full of Majesty.
29:5 The voice of the "I AM" breaketh the cedars; yea, the "I AM" breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
29:6 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
29:7 The voice of the "I AM" divideth the flames of fire.
29:8 The voice of the "I AM" shaketh the wilderness; the "I AM" shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
29:9 The voice of the "I AM" maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests: and in His Temple doth every one speak of [His] glory.
29:10 The "I AM" sitteth upon the flood; yea, the "I AM" sitteth King for ever.
29:11 The "I AM" will give strength unto His people; the "I AM" will bless His people with peace.
30:1 <A Psalm [and] Song [at] the dedication of the house of David.> I will extol Thee, O "I AM"; for Thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
30:2 O "I AM" my God, I cried unto Thee, and Thou hast healed me.
30:3 O "I AM", Thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
30:4 Sing unto the "I AM", O ye holy people of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.
30:5 For His anger [endureth only] a moment; in His favour [is] Life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy [cometh] in the morning.
30:6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
30:7 "I AM", by Thy favour Thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: Thou didst hide Thy face, [and] I was troubled.
30:8 I cried to Thee, O "I AM"; and unto the "I AM" I made supplication.
30:9 What profit [is there] in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise Thee? Shall it declare Thy Truth?
30:10 Hear, O "I AM", and have mercy upon me: "I AM", be Thou my helper.
30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
30:12 To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent. O "I AM" my God, I will give thanks unto Thee for ever.
31:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> In Thee, O "I AM", do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in Thy righteousness.
31:2 Bow down Thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be Thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
31:3 For Thou [art] my rock and my fortress; therefore for Thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
31:4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for Thou [art] my strength.
31:5 Into Thine hand I commit my spirit: Thou hast redeemed me, O "I AM" God of Truth.
31:6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the "I AM".
31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy: for Thou hast considered my trouble; Thou hast known my soul in adversities;
31:8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: Thou hast set my feet in a large room.
31:9 Have mercy upon me, O "I AM", for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, [yea], my soul and my belly.
31:10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.
31:11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me outside fled from me.
31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
31:13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear [was] on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
31:14 But I trusted in Thee, O "I AM": I said, Thou [art] my God.
31:15 My times [are] in Thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
31:16 Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant: save me for Thy mercies' sake.
31:17 Let me not be ashamed, O "I AM"; for I have called upon Thee: let the wicked be ashamed, [and] let them be silent in the grave.
31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
31:19 [Oh] how great [is] Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee; [which] Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons of men!
31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of Thy presence from the pride of man: Thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.
31:21 Blessed [be] the "I AM": for He hath showed me His marvellous kindness in a strong city.
31:22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before Thine eyes: nevertheless Thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto Thee.
31:23 O love the "I AM", all ye His holy people: [for] the "I AM" preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
31:24 Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the "I AM".
32:1 <[A Psalm] of David, Maschil.> Blessed [is he whose] transgression [is] forgiven, [whose] sin [is] covered.
32:2 Blessed [is] the man unto whom the "I AM" imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit [there is] no guile.
32:3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.
32:4 For day and night Thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. The rock.
32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto Thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the "I AM"; and Thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. The rock.
32:6 For this shall every one that is Godly pray unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
32:7 Thou [art] my hiding place; Thou shalt preserve me from trouble; Thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. The rock.
32:8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in The Way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
32:9 Be ye not as the horse, [or] as the mule, [which] have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
32:10 Many sorrows [shall be] to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the "I AM", mercy shall compass him about.
32:11 Be glad in the "I AM", and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all [ye that are] upright in heart.
33:1 Rejoice in the "I AM", O ye righteous: [for] praise is comely for the upright.
33:2 Praise the "I AM" with harp: sing unto Him with the psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings.
33:3 Sing unto Him a New Song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
33:4 For the Word of the "I AM" [is] Right; and all His works [are done] in Truth.
33:5 He loveth Righteousness and Judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the "I AM".
33:6 By the Word of the "I AM" were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: He layeth up the depth in storehouses.
33:8 Let all the earth fear the "I AM": let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
33:9 For He spoke, and it was [done]; He commanded, and it stood fast.
33:10 The "I AM" bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: He maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
33:11 The counsel of the "I AM" standeth for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations.
33:12 Blessed [is] the nation whose God [is] the "I AM"; [and] the people [whom] He hath chosen for His Own inheritance.
33:13 The "I AM" looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men.
33:14 From the place of His habitation He looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
33:15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; He considereth all their works.
33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
33:17 An horse [is] a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver [any] by his great strength.
33:18 Behold, the eye of the "I AM" [is] upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy;
33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
33:20 Our soul waiteth for the "I AM": He [is] our help and our shield.
33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.
33:22 Let Thy mercy, O "I AM", be upon us, according as we hope in Thee.
34:1 <[A Psalm] of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.> I will bless the "I AM" at all times: His praise [shall] continually [be] in my mouth.
34:2 My soul shall make his boast in the "I AM": the humble shall hear [thereof], and be glad.
34:3 O magnify the "I AM" with me, and let us exalt His name together.
34:4 I sought the "I AM", and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
34:5 They looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
34:6 This poor man cried, and the "I AM" heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles.
34:7 The angel of the "I AM" encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them.
34:8 O taste and see that the "I AM" [is] good: blessed [is] the man [that] trusteth in Him.
34:9 O fear the "I AM", ye His holy people: for [there is] no want to them that fear Him.
34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the "I AM" shall not lack any good [thing].
34:11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the "I AM".
34:12 What man [is he that] desireth life, [and] loveth [many] days, that he may see good?
34:13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
34:14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
34:15 The eyes of the "I AM" [are] upon the righteous, and His ears [are open] unto their cry.
34:16 The face of the "I AM" [is] against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
34:17 [The righteous] cry, and the "I AM" heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
34:18 The "I AM" [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
34:19 Many [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the "I AM" delivereth him out of them all.
34:20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
34:21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
34:22 The "I AM" redeemeth the soul of His servants: and none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.
35:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Plead [my cause], O "I AM", with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
35:3 Draw out also the spear, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I [am] thy salvation.
35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the "I AM" chase [them].
35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the "I AM" persecute them.
35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net [in] a pit, [which] without cause they have digged for my soul.
35:8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
35:9 And my soul shall be joyful in the "I AM": it shall rejoice in His salvation.
35:10 All my bones shall say, "I AM", who [is] like unto Thee, Which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
35:11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge [things] that I knew not.
35:12 They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my soul.
35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
35:14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother.
35:15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: [yea], the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew [it] not; they did tear [me], and ceased not:
35:16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
35:17 Lord, how long wilt Thou look on? Rescue my soul from their destructions, my life from the lions.
35:18 I will give Thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise Thee among much people.
35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
35:20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against [them that are] quiet in the land.
35:21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen [it].
35:22 [This] Thou hast seen, O "I AM": keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
35:23 Stir up Thyself, and awake to my judgment, [even] unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
35:24 Judge me, O "I AM" my God, according to Thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify [themselves] against me.
35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the "I AM" be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.
35:28 And my tongue shall speak of Thy righteousness [and] of Thy praise all the day long.
36:1 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David the servant of the "I AM".> The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, [that there is] no fear of God before his eyes.
36:2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his inequity be found to be hateful.
36:3 The words of his mouth [are] inequity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, [and] to do good.
36:4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way [that is] not good; he abhorreth not evil.
36:5 Thy mercy, O "I AM", [is] in the heavens; [and] Thy faithfulness [reacheth] unto the clouds.
36:6 Thy righteousness [is] like the great mountains; Thy Judgments [are] a great deep: O "I AM", Thou preservest man and beast.
36:7 How excellent [is] Thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings.
36:8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures.
36:9 For with Thee [is] the Fountain of [the Water of] Life: in Thy Light shall we see the Light.
36:10 O continue Thy lovingkindness unto them that know Thee; and Thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
36:11 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
36:12 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
37:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of inequity.
37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
37:3 Trust in the "I AM", and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
37:4 Delight thyself also in the "I AM"; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
37:5 Commit thy way unto the "I AM"; trust also in Him; and He shall bring [it] to pass.
37:6 And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the Light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
37:7 Rest in the "I AM", and wait patiently for Him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the "I AM", they shall inherit the earth.
37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be].
37:11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
37:12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
37:13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for He seeth that His day is coming.
37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, [and] to slay such as be of upright conversation.
37:15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
37:16 A little that a righteous man hath [is] better than the riches of many wicked.
37:17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the "I AM" upholdeth the righteous.
37:18 The "I AM" knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.
37:19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the "I AM" [shall be] as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous showeth mercy, and giveth.
37:22 For [such as be] blessed by Him shall inherit the earth; and [they that be] cursed by Him shall be cut off.
37:23 The steps of a [good] man are ordered by the "I AM": and he delighteth in His Way.
37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the "I AM" upholdeth [him with] His hand.
37:25 I have been young, and [now] am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
37:26 [He is] ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed [is] blessed.
37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
37:28 For the "I AM" loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his holy people; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of Judgment.
37:31 The Law of his God [is] in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
37:32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
37:33 The "I AM" will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
37:34 Wait on the "I AM", and keep His Way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it].
37:35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
37:36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he [was] not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
37:37 Mark the perfect [man], and behold the upright: for the end of [that] man [is] peace.
37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
37:39 But the salvation of the righteous [is] from the "I AM": [He is] their strength in the time of trouble.
37:40 And the "I AM" shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him.
38:1 <A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.> O "I AM", rebuke me not in Thy wrath: neither chasten me in Thy hot displeasure.
38:2 For Thine arrows stick fast in me, and Thy hand presseth me sore.
38:3 [There is] no soundness in my flesh because of Thine anger; neither [is there any] rest in my bones because of my sin.
38:4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
38:5 My wounds stink [and] are corrupt because of my foolishness.
38:6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
38:7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome [disease]: and [there is] no soundness in my flesh.
38:8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
38:9 Lord, all my desire [is] before Thee; and my groaning is not hid from Thee.
38:10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the Light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
38:11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
38:12 They also that seek after my life lay snares [for me]: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
38:13 But I, as a deaf [man], heard not; and [I was] as a dumb man [that] openeth not his mouth.
38:14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth [are] no rebukes.
38:15 For in Thee, O "I AM", do I hope: Thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
38:16 For I said, [Hear me], lest [otherwise] they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify [themselves] against me.
38:17 For I [am] ready to halt, and my sorrow [is] continually before me.
38:18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
38:19 But mine enemies [are] lively, [and] they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
38:20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow [the thing that] good [is].
38:21 Forsake me not, O "I AM": O my God, be not far from me.
38:22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
39:1 <To the chief Musician, [even] to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.> I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
39:2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, [even] from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
39:3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: [then] spoke I with my tongue,
39:4 "I AM", make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it [is; that] I may know how frail I [am].
39:5 Behold, Thou hast made my days [as] an handbreadth; and mine age [is] as nothing before Thee: verily every man at his best state [is] altogether vanity. The rock.
39:6 Surely every man walketh in a vain show: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up [riches], and knoweth not who shall gather them.
39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope [is] in Thee.
39:8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
39:9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because Thou didst [it].
39:10 Remove Thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of Thine hand.
39:11 When Thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, Thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man [is] vanity. The rock.
39:12 Hear my prayer, O "I AM", and give ear unto my cry; hold not Thy peace at my tears: for I [am] a stranger with Thee, [and] a sojourner, as all my fathers [were].
39:13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
40:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> I waited patiently for the "I AM"; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings.
40:3 And He hath put a New Song in my mouth, [even] praise unto our God: many shall see [it], and fear, and shall trust in the "I AM".
40:4 Blessed [is] that man that maketh the "I AM" his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
40:5 Many, O "I AM" my God, [are] Thy wonderful works [which] Thou hast done, and Thy thoughts [which are] to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto Thee: [if] I would declare and speak [of them], they are more than can be numbered.
40:6 Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast Thou not required.
40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the Book [it is] written of me,
40:8 I delight to do Thy will, O my God: yea, Thy Law [is] within my heart.
40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O "I AM", Thou knowest.
40:10 I have not hid Thy Righteousness within my heart; I have declared Thy faithfulness and Thy salvation: I have not concealed Thy lovingkindness and Thy Truth from the great congregation.
40:11 Withhold not Thou Thy tender mercies from me, O "I AM": let Thy lovingkindness and Thy Truth continually preserve me.
40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
40:13 Be pleased, O "I AM", to deliver me: O "I AM", make haste to help me.
40:14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
40:15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
40:16 Let all those that seek Thee rejoice and be glad in Thee: let such as love Thy salvation say continually, The "I AM" be magnified.
40:17 But I [am] poor and needy; [yet] the Lord thinketh upon me: Thou [art] my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
41:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> Blessed [is] he that considereth the poor: the "I AM" will deliver him in time of trouble.
41:2 The "I AM" will preserve him, and keep him alive; [and] he shall be blessed upon the earth: and Thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
41:3 The "I AM" will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: Thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
41:4 I said, "I AM", be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against Thee.
41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
41:6 And if he come to see [me], he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; [when] he goeth abroad, he telleth [it].
41:7 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.
41:8 An evil disease, [say they], cleaveth fast unto him: and [now] that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.
41:10 But Thou, O "I AM", be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
41:11 By this I know that Thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
41:12 And as for me, Thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before Thy face for ever.
41:13 Blessed [be] the "I AM" God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
42:1 <To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah.> As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul (Being) after Thee, O God.
42:2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the Living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
42:3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where [is] thy God?
42:4 When I remember these [things], I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to The House of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And [why] art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him [for] the help of His countenance.
42:6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember Thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
42:7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of Thy waterspouts: all Thy waves and Thy billows are gone over me.
42:8 [Yet] the "I AM" will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song [shall be] with me, [and] my prayer unto the God of my life.
42:9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast Thou forgotten me? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
42:10 [As] with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where [is] thy God?
42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise Him, [Who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.
43:1 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an unGodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
43:2 For Thou [art] the God of my strength: why dost Thou cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
43:3 O send out Thy Light and Thy Truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Thy holy hill, and to Thy Tabernacles.
43:4 Then will I go unto the Altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise Thee, O God my God.
43:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope in God: for I shall yet praise Him, [Who is] the health of my countenance, and my God.
44:1 <To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil.> We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, [what] work Thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
44:2 [How] Thou didst drive out the heathen with Thy hand, and plantedst them; [how] Thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
44:3 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but Thy right hand, and Thine arm, and the Light of Thy countenance, because Thou hadst a favour unto them.
44:4 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
44:5 Through Thee will we push down our enemies: through Thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
44:6 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
44:7 But Thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
44:8 In God we boast all the day long, and praise Thy name for ever. The rock.
44:9 But Thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.
44:10 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
44:11 Thou hast given us like sheep [appointed] for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.
44:12 Thou sellest Thy people for nought, and dost not increase [Thy wealth] by their price.
44:13 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
44:14 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
44:15 My confusion [is] continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
44:16 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
44:17 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten Thee, neither have we dealt falsely in Thy Covenant.
44:18 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from Thy Way;
44:19 Though Thou hast sore broken us in the place of jackals, and covered us with the shadow of death.
44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
44:21 Shall not God search this out? For He knoweth the secrets of the heart.
44:22 Yea, for Thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
44:23 Awake, why sleepest Thou, O Lord? Arise, cast [us] not off for ever.
44:24 Why hidest Thou Thy face, [and] forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
44:25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
44:26 Arise for our help, and redeem us for Thy mercies' sake.
45:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.> My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue [is] the pen of a ready writer.
45:2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
45:3 Gird thy sword upon [thy] thigh, O [most] mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
45:4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness [and] righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
45:5 Thine arrows [are] sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; [whereby] the people fall under thee.
45:6 Thy Throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: the sceptre of Thy Kingdom [is] a Right sceptre.
45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
45:8 All thy garments [smell] of myrrh, and aloes, [and] cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
45:9 Kings' daughters [were] among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
45:10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
45:11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he [is] thy lord; and worship thou him.
45:12 And the daughter of Tyre [shall be there] with a gift; [even] the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
45:13 The king's daughter [is] all glorious within: her clothing [is] of wrought gold.
45:14 She shall be brought unto the king in clothing of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
45:15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.
45:16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
45:17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
46:1 <To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.> God [is] our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
46:2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
46:3 [Though] the waters thereof roar [and] be troubled, [though] the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. The rock.
46:4 [There is] a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the Holy [Place] of the Tabernacles of the Most High.
46:5 God [is] in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, [and that] right early.
46:6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
46:7 The "I AM" Lord of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our refuge. The rock.
46:8 Come, behold the works of the "I AM", what desolations He hath made in the earth.
46:9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the chariot in the fire.
46:10 Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
46:11 The "I AM" Lord of hosts [is] with us; the God of Jacob [is] our refuge. The rock.
47:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.> O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
47:2 For the "I AM" Most High [is] terrible; [He is] a great King over all the earth.
47:3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom He loved. The rock.
47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the "I AM" with the sound of a trumpet.
47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
47:7 For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the Throne of His holiness.
47:9 The princes of the people are gathered together, [even] the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth [belong] unto God: He is greatly exalted.
48:1 <A Song [and] Psalm for the sons of Korah.> Great [is] the "I AM", and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, [in] the mountain of His holiness.
48:2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, [is] mount Zion, [on] the sides of the North, the city of the great King.
48:3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
48:4 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
48:5 They saw [it, and] so they marvelled; they were troubled, [and] hasted away.
48:6 Fear took hold upon them there, [and] pain, as of a woman in travail.
48:7 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
48:8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the "I AM" Lord of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. The rock.
48:9 We have thought of Thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Thy Temple.
48:10 According to Thy name, O God, so [is] Thy praise unto the ends of the earth: Thy right hand is full of Righteousness.
48:11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of Thy Judgments.
48:12 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
48:13 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell [it] to the generation following.
48:14 For this God [is] our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide [even] unto death.
49:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.> Hear this, all [ye] people; give ear, all [ye] inhabitants of the world:
49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart [shall be] of understanding.
49:4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
49:7 None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
49:8 (For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
49:9 That he should still live for ever, [and] not see corruption.
49:10 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
49:11 Their inward thought [is, that] their houses [shall continue] for ever, [and] their dwelling places to all generations; they call [their] lands after their own names.
49:12 Nevertheless man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts [that] perish.
49:13 This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. The rock.
49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for He, The rock, shall receive me.
49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and [men] will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
49:20 Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish.
50:1 <A Psalm of Asaph.> The Mighty God, [even] the "I AM", hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
50:3 Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.
50:4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people.
50:5 Gather My holy ones together unto Me; those that have made a Covenant with Me by sacrifice.
50:6 And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God [is] Judge Himself. The rock.
50:7 Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I [am] God, [even] thy God.
50:8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, [to have been] continually before Me.
50:9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, [nor] he goats out of thy folds.
50:10 For every beast of the forest [is] Mine, [and] the cattle upon a thousand hills.
50:11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field [are] Mine.
50:12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world [is] Mine, and the fulness thereof.
50:13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
50:14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the Most High:
50:15 And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.
50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare My Statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take My Covenant in thy mouth?
50:17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest My words behind thee.
50:18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
50:20 Thou sittest [and] speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
50:21 These [things] hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether [such an one] as thyself: [but] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes.
50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear [you] in pieces, and [there be] none to deliver.
50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth Me: and to him that ordereth [his] conversation [aright] will I show the salvation of God.
51:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the Prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.> Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy Tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin [is] ever before me.
51:4 Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done [this] evil in Thy sight: that Thou mightest be justified when Thou speakest, [and] be clear when Thou judgest.
51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
51:6 Behold, Thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden [part] Thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
51:8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; [that] the bones [which] Thou hast broken may rejoice.
51:9 Hide Thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
51:11 Cast me not away from Thy presence; and take not Thy holy spirit from me.
51:12 Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation; and uphold me [with Thy] free spirit.
51:13 [Then] will I teach transgressors Thy Ways; and sinners shall be converted unto Thee.
51:14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, Thou God of my salvation: [and] my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy Righteousness.
51:15 O Lord, open Thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forth Thy praise.
51:16 For Thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give [it]: Thou delightest not in burnt offering.
51:17 The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, Thou wilt not despise.
51:18 Do good in Thy good pleasure unto Zion: build Thou the walls of Jerusalem.
51:19 Then shalt Thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon Thine Altar.
52:1 <To the chief Musician, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Ahimelech.> Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The goodness of God [endureth] continually.
52:2 Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
52:3 Thou lovest evil more than good; [and] lying rather than to speak righteousness. The rock.
52:4 Thou lovest all devouring words, O [thou] deceitful tongue.
52:5 God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, He shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of [thy] dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. The rock.
52:6 The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
52:7 Lo, [this is] the man [that] made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, [and] strengthened himself in his wickedness.
52:8 But I [am] like a green olive tree in The House of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
52:9 I will praise Thee for ever, because Thou hast done [it]: and I will wait on Thy name; for [it is] good before Thy holy people.
53:1 <To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David.> The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: [there is] none that doeth good.
53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God.
53:3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
53:4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people [as] they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
53:5 There were they in great fear, [where] no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth [against] thee: thou hast put [them] to shame, because God hath despised them.
53:6 Oh that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.
54:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us?> Save me, O God, by Thy name, and judge me by Thy strength.
54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
54:3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. The rock.
54:4 Behold, God [is] mine helper: the Lord [is] with them that uphold my soul.
54:5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in Thy Truth.
54:6 I will freely sacrifice unto Thee: I will praise Thy name, O "I AM"; for [it is] good.
54:7 For He hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen [His desire] upon mine enemies.
55:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David.> Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not Thyself from my supplication.
55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! [for then] would I fly away, and be at rest.
55:7 Lo, [then] would I wander far off, [and] remain in the wilderness. The rock.
55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm [and] tempest.
55:9 Destroy, O Lord, [and] divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
55:10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it.
55:11 Wickedness [is] in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
55:12 For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I could have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that] did magnify [himself] against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
55:13 But [it was] thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
55:14 We took sweet counsel together, [and] walked unto The House of God in company.
55:15 Let death seize upon them, [and] let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness [is] in their dwellings, [and] among them.
55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the "I AM" shall save me.
55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.
55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle [that was] against me: for there were many with me.
55:19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even He that abideth of old. The rock. Because they fear not God, therefore they do not change.
55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
55:21 [The words] of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war [was] in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet [were] they drawn swords.
55:22 Cast thy burden upon the "I AM", and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
55:23 But Thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in Thee.
56:1 <To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath.> Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
56:2 Mine enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they be] many that fight against me, O Thou Most High.
56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee.
56:4 In God I will praise His Word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are] against me for evil.
56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? In [Thine] anger cast down the people, O God.
56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put Thou my tears into Thy bottle: [are they] not in Thy Book?
56:9 When I cry [unto Thee], then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God [is] for me.
56:10 In God will I praise [His] Word: in the "I AM" will I praise [His] Word.
56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
56:12 Thy vows [are] upon me, O God: I will render praises unto Thee.
56:13 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death: [wilt] not [Thou deliver] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the Light of the Living?
57:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.> Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in Thee: yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until [these] calamities be overpast.
57:2 I will cry unto God Most High; unto God that performeth [all things] for me.
57:3 He shall send from heaven, and save me [from] the reproach of him that would swallow me up. God shall send forth His mercy and His truth. The rock.
57:4 My soul [is] among lions: [and] I lie [even among] them that are set on fire, [even] the sons of men, whose teeth [are] spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
57:5 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [let] Thy glory [be] above all the earth.
57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen [themselves]. The rock.
57:7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I [myself] will awake early.
57:9 I will praise Thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto Thee among the nations.
57:10 For Thy mercy [is] great unto the heavens, and Thy truth unto the clouds.
57:11 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: [let] Thy glory [be] above all the earth.
58:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David.> Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? Do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
58:4 Their poison [is] like the poison of a serpent: [they are] like the deaf adder [that] stoppeth her ear;
58:5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
58:6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O "I AM".
58:7 Let them melt away as waters [which] run continually: [when] he bendeth [his bow to shoot] his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
58:8 As a snail [which] melteth, let [every one of them] pass away: [like] the untimely birth of a woman, [that] they may not see the sun.
58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in [His] wrath.
58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily [there is] a reward for the righteous: verily He is a God that judgeth in the earth.
59:1 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.> Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.
59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
59:3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not [for] my transgression, nor [for] my sin, O "I AM".
59:4 They run and prepare themselves without [my] fault: awake to help me, and behold.
59:5 Thou therefore, O "I AM" God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. The rock.
59:6 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords [are] in their lips: for who, [say they], doth hear?
59:8 But Thou, O "I AM", shalt laugh at them; Thou shalt make fools of all the heathen.
59:9 [Because of] his strength will I wait upon Thee: for God [is] my defence.
59:10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see [my desire] upon mine enemies.
59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by Thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
59:12 [For] the sin of their mouth [and] the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying [which] they speak.
59:13 Consume [them] in wrath, consume [them], that they [may] not [be]: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. The rock.
59:14 And at evening let them return; [and] let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
59:15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
59:16 But I will sing of Thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning: for Thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
59:17 Unto Thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God [is] my defence, [and] the God of my mercy.
60:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth, Michtam of David, to teach; when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand.> 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 showed 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. The rock.
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 Law-giver (God's Laws);
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 Edom?
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 <To the chief Musician upon Neginah, [A Psalm] of David.> 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 the enemy.
61:4 I will abide in Thy Tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of Thy wings. The rock.
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 generations.
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 <To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David.> 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 tottering fence.
62:4 They only consult to cast [him] down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. The rock.
62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation [is] from Him.
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. The rock.
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 <A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.> 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 Sanctuary.
63:3 Because Thy lovingkindness [is] better than life, my lips shall praise Thee.
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 [night] watches.
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 me.
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 foxes.
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 be stopped.
64:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> 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, [is] deep.
64:7 But God shall shoot at them [with] an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
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 "I AM", and shall trust in Him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
65:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm [and] Song of David.> 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 Temple.
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 with power:
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 Signs: Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
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 Ways drop fatness.
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 <To the chief Musician, A Song [or] Psalm.> 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 unto Thee.
66:4 All the earth shall worship Thee, and shall sing unto Thee; they shall sing [to] Thy name. The rock.
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. The rock.
66:8 O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of His praise to be heard:
66:9 Which holdeth our soul (Being) in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
66:10 For Thou, O God, hast proved us: Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
66:11 Thou broughtest us into the net; Thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
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 wealthy [place].
66:13 I will go into Thy House with burnt offerings: I will pay Thee my vows,
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. The rock.
66:16 Come [and] hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what He hath done for my soul (Being).
66:17 I cried unto Him with my mouth, and He was extolled with my tongue.
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 my prayer.
66:20 Blessed [be] God, Which hath not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me.
67:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm [or] Song.> God; The rock; be merciful unto us, and bless us; [and] cause His face to shine upon us.
67:2 That Thy Way may be known upon earth, Thy saving health among all nations.
67:3 Let the people praise Thee, O God; let all the people praise Thee.
67:4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for Thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. The rock.
67:5 Let the people praise Thee, O God; let all the people praise Thee.
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 Him.
68:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm [or] Song of David.> 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 God.
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 [land].
68:7 O God, when Thou wentest forth before Thy people, when Thou didst march through the wilderness; The rock:
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 published [it].
68:12 Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
68:13 Though ye have lain among the pots, [yet shall ye be as] the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
68:14 When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was [white] as snow in Salmon.
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 "I AM" 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 [place].
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 "I AM" God might dwell [among them].
68:19 Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the God of our salvation. The rock.
68:20 [He that is] our God [is] the God of salvation; and unto "I AM" 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 unto Thee.
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 war.
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; The rock:
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 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, [A Psalm] of David.> Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto [my] soul (Being).
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 away.
69:5 O God, Thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from Thee.
69:6 Let not them that wait on Thee, O "I AM" Lord 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 my face.
69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.
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 my reproach.
69:11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
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 "I AM", [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 "I AM"; 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 mine enemies.
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 tents.
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 Thy Righteousness.
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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" heareth the poor, and despiseth not His prisoners (all of the people on this prison planet).
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 <To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David, to bring to remembrance.> [Make haste], O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O "I AM".
70:2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
70:3 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
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 magnified.
70:5 But I [am] poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: Thou [art] my help and my deliverer; O "I AM", make no tarrying.
71:1 In Thee, O "I AM", do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
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 "I AM": [Thou art] my trust from my youth.
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 the day.
71:9 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
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 more.
71:15 My mouth shall show 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 "I AM": 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 grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed 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 showed 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 side.
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 of Israel.
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 <[A Psalm] for Solomon.> 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 with judgment.
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 oppressor.
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 serve him.
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 (Beings) of the needy.
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 "I AM" God, the God of Israel, Who only doeth wondrous things.
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 <A Psalm of Asaph.> Truly God [is] good to Israel, [even] to such as are of a clean heart.
73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
73:3 For I was envious at the foolish, [when] I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
73:4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength [is] firm.
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 could wish.
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 here: 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 Most High?
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 in innocency.
73:14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
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 their end.
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 [to] glory.
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 "I AM", that I may declare all Thy works.
74:1 <Maschil of Asaph.> 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 thick trees.
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 churches 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 breast.
74:12 For God [is] my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
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 mighty rivers.
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 "I AM", and [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 <To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm [or] Song of Asaph.> 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. The rock.
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 another.
75:8 For in the hand of the "I AM" [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 Jacob.
75:10 All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; [but] the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
76:1 <To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm [or] Song of Asaph.> In Judah [is] God known: His name [is] great in Israel.
76:2 In Salem also is His Tabernacle, and His dwelling place in Zion.
76:3 There broke He the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. The rock.
76:4 Thou [art] more glorious [and] excellent than the mountains of prey.
76:5 The stout-hearted 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. The rock.
76:10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee: the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain.
76:11 Vow, and pay unto the "I AM" 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 <To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph.> 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. The rock.
77:4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
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 more?
77:8 Is His mercy clean gone for ever? Doth [His] promise fail for evermore?
77:9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? Hath He in anger shut up His tender mercies? The rock.
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 "I AM": 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 [our] God?
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. The rock.
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 Aaron.
78:1 <Maschil of Asaph.> 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 of old:
78:3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
78:4 We will not hide [them] from their children, showing to the generation to come the praises of the "I AM", and His strength, and His wonderful works that He hath done.
78:5 For He established The Covenant in Jacob, and appointed The 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 their children:
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 steadfast 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 Law;
78:11 And forgot His works, and His wonders that He had showed 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 lust.
78:19 Yea, they spoke 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 "I AM" 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 salvation:
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 their habitations.
78:29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for He gave them their own desire;
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 wondrous works.
78:33 Therefore their days did He consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
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 their redeemer.
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 steadfast 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 (believed that they) [were only] 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 (Clear) 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 diverse 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 with frost.
78:48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of His anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending destroying 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 their tents.
78:56 Yet they tempted and provoked the Most High God, and kept not His Covenant:
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 Israel:
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 lamentation.
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 perpetual reproach.
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 sheepfolds:
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 <A Psalm of Asaph.> 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 holy people 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 mockery to them that are round about us.
79:5 How long, "I AM"? 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 place.
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 show forth Thy praise to all generations.
80:1 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph.> Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; Thou that dwellest [between] the cherubims, shine forth.
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 "I AM" 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 the river.
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 "I AM" God of hosts, cause Thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
81:1 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, [A Psalm] of Asaph.> Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
81:2 Take a Psalm, and bring here 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 Jacob.
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 understood not.
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. The rock.
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 "I AM" 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 wanted 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 "I AM" should have submitted themselves unto Him: that 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 <A Psalm of Asaph.> 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 wicked? The rock.
82:3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
82:4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid [them] out of the hand of the wicked.
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 (your spirit-Beings) [are] children of the Most High.
82:7 But ye (your Beings) shall die like men (humans), and fall like one of the princes.
82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for Thou shalt inherit all nations.
83:1 <A Song [or] Psalm of Asaph.> 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 Hagarenes;
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. The rock.
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 possession.
83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
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 Thy storm.
83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Thy name, O "I AM".
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] "I AM", [art] The Most High over all the earth.
84:1 <To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.> How amiable [are] thy tabernacles, O "I AM" Lord of hosts!
84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the "I AM": 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 "I AM" Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.
84:4 Blessed [are] they that dwell in Thy House: they will be still praising Thee. The rock.
84:5 Blessed [is] the man whose strength [is] in Thee; in whose heart [are] Thy Ways.
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 "I AM" God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. The rock.
84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Thine anointed.
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 "I AM" God [is] a sun and shield: the "I AM" will give grace and glory: no good [thing] will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.
84:12 O "I AM" Lord of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in Thee.
85:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.> "I AM", 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. The rock.
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 Thee?
85:7 Show us Thy mercy, O "I AM", and grant us Thy salvation.
85:8 I will hear what God the "I AM" will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people, and to His holy ones: 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 "I AM" 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 <A Prayer of David.> Bow down Thine ear, O "I AM", 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 "I AM", unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon Thee: for Thou wilt answer me.
86:8 Among the gods [there is] none like unto Thee, O Lord; neither [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 alone.
86:11 Teach me Thy Way, O "I AM"; 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 before them.
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 Show me a Sign for good; that they which hate me may see [it], and be ashamed: because Thou, "I AM", hast helped me, and comforted me.
87:1 <A Psalm [or] Song for the sons of Korah.> His foundation [is] in the holy mountains.
87:2 The "I AM" loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
87:3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. The rock.
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 there.
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 "I AM" shall count, when He writeth up the people, [that] this [man] was born there. The rock.
87:7 As well the singers as the players on instruments [shall be there]: all my springs [are] in Thee.
88:1 <A Song [or] Psalm for the sons of Korah, to the chief Musician upon Mahalath Leannoth, Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.> O "I AM" God of my salvation, I have cried day [and] night before Thee:
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 the grave.
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 hand.
88:6 Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
88:7 Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and Thou hast afflicted [me] with all Thy waves. The rock.
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 come forth.
88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: "I AM", I have called daily upon Thee, I have stretched out my hands unto Thee.
88:10 Wilt Thou show wonders to the dead? Shall the dead arise [and] praise Thee? The rock.
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 "I AM"; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent Thee.
88:14 "I AM", why castest Thou off my soul? [Why] hidest Thou Thy face from me?
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 about together.
88:18 Lover and friend hast Thou put far from me, [and] mine acquaintance into darkness.
89:1 <Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite.> I will sing of the mercies of the "I AM" for ever: with my mouth will I make known Thy faithfulness to all generations.
89:2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: Thy faithfulness shalt Thou establish in the very heavens.
89:3 I have made a Covenant with My chosen, I have sworn unto David My servant,
89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. The rock.
89:5 And the heavens shall praise Thy wonders, O "I AM": Thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the holy people.
89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the "I AM"? [Who] among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the "I AM"?
89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the holy people, and to be had in reverence of all [them that are] about Him.
89:8 O "I AM" God of hosts, who [is] a strong "I AM" like unto Thee? Or to Thy faithfulness round about Thee?
89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, Thou stillest them.
89:10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; Thou hast scattered Thine enemies with Thy strong arm.
89:11 The heavens [are] Thine, the earth also [is] Thine: [as for] the world and the fulness thereof, Thou hast founded them.
89:12 The North and the South Thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in Thy name.
89:13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is Thy hand, [and] high is Thy right hand.
89:14 Justice and Judgment [are] the habitation of Thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before Thy face.
89:15 Blessed [is] the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O "I AM", in the Light of Thy countenance.
89:16 In Thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in Thy Righteousness shall they be exalted.
89:17 For Thou [art] the glory of their strength: and in Thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
89:18 For the "I AM" [is] our defence; and the Holy One of Israel [is] our King.
89:19 Then Thou spokest in vision to Thy faithful one, and saidst, I have laid help upon [one that is] mighty; I have exalted [one] chosen out of the people.
89:20 I have found David My servant; with My holy oil have I anointed him:
89:21 With whom My hand shall be established: Mine arm also shall strengthen him.
89:22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
89:23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.
89:24 But My faithfulness and My mercy [shall be] with him: and in My name shall his horn be exalted.
89:25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
89:26 He shall cry unto Me, Thou [art] my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
89:27 Also I will make him [My] firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and My Covenant shall stand fast with him.
89:29 His seed also will I make [to endure] for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
89:30 If his children forsake My Law, and walk not in My Judgments;
89:31 If they break My Statutes, and keep not My Commandments;
89:32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
89:33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer My faithfulness to fail.
89:34 My Covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
89:35 Once have I sworn by My holiness that I will not lie unto David.
89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as "the sun" before me.
89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and [as] a faithful witness in heaven. The rock.
89:38 But Thou hast cast off and abhorred, Thou hast been wroth with Thine anointed.
89:39 Thou hast made void the Covenant of Thy servant: Thou hast profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; Thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
89:41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours.
89:42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; Thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.
89:44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.
89:45 The days of his youth hast Thou shortened: Thou hast covered him with shame. The rock.
89:46 How long, "I AM"? Wilt Thou hide Thyself for ever? Shall Thy wrath burn like fire?
89:47 Remember how short my time is: why hast Thou made all men in vain?
89:48 What man [is he that] liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? The rock.
89:49 Lord, where [are] Thy former lovingkindnesses, [which] Thou swarest unto David in Thy Truth?
89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of Thy servants; [how] I do bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty people;
89:51 Wherewith Thine enemies have reproached, O "I AM"; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of Thine anointed.
89:52 Blessed [be] the "I AM" for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
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 "I AM", 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM", [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 "I AM", [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 serpent 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 "I AM", 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, "I AM", hast made me glad through Thy work: I will triumph in the works of Thy hands.
92:5 O "I AM", 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] they that shall be destroyed for ever:
92:8 But Thou, "I AM", [art Most] High for evermore.
92:9 For, lo, Thine enemies, O "I AM", for, lo, Thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of inequity 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" [is] upright: [He is] my rock, and [there is] no unrighteousness in Him.
93:1 The "I AM" Reigneth, He is clothed with Majesty; the "I AM" 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 "I AM", the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
93:4 The "I AM" on high [is] mightier than the noise of many waters, [yea, than] the mighty waves of the sea.
93:5 Thy Covenants are very sure: holiness becometh Thine House, O "I AM", for ever.
94:1 O "I AM" 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 "I AM", 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 inequity boast themselves?
94:5 They break in pieces Thy people, O "I AM", and afflict Thine heritage.
94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
94:7 Yet they say, The "I AM" 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 "I AM" knoweth the thoughts of man, that they [are] unreality.
94:12 Blessed [is] the man whom Thou chastenest, O "I AM", 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 "I AM" 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 inequity?
94:17 Unless the "I AM" [had been] my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; Thy mercy, O "I AM", 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, which frameth mischief by a law, have fellowship with Thee?
94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
94:22 But the "I AM" 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 "I AM" our God shall cut them off.
95:1 O come, let us sing unto the "I AM": 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" a New Song: sing unto the "I AM", all the earth.
96:2 Sing unto the "I AM", 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM" made the heavens.
96:6 Honour and Majesty [are] His: strength and beauty [are] in His Sanctuary.
96:7 Give unto the "I AM", O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the "I AM" glory and strength.
96:8 Give unto the "I AM" the glory [due unto] His name: bring an offering, and come into His courts.
96:9 O worship the "I AM" in the beauty of holiness: fear before Him, all the earth.
96:10 Say among the heathen [that] the "I AM" 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 fullness 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 "I AM": 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM".
97:9 For Thou, "I AM", [art] high above all the earth: Thou art exalted far above all gods.
97:10 Ye that love the "I AM", hate evil: He preserveth the souls of His holy people; 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 "I AM", ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His Holiness.
98:1 <A Psalm.> O sing unto the "I AM" a New Song; for He hath done marvellous things: His right hand, and His holy arm, hath gotten Him the victory.
98:2 The "I AM" 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 "I AM", all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
98:5 Sing unto the "I AM" 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM"; for He cometh to judge the earth: with Righteousness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity.
99:1 The "I AM" Reigneth; let the people tremble: He sitteth [between] the cherubims; let the earth be moved.
99:2 The "I AM" [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 "I AM" 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 "I AM", and He answered them.
99:7 He spoke unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept His Testimonies, and the Ordinance [that] He gave them.
99:8 Thou answeredst them, O "I AM" our God: Thou wast a God that forgavest them, though Thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.
99:9 Exalt the "I AM" our God, and worship at His Holy Hill; for the "I AM" our God [is] holy.
100:1 <A Psalm of praise.> Make a joyful noise unto the "I AM", all ye lands.
100:2 Serve the "I AM" with gladness: come before His Presence with singing.
100:3 Know ye that the "I AM" 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM", 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 troublesome 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 I will not suffer.
101:6 Mine eyes [shall be] upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in Thy 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 "I AM".
102:1 <A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the "I AM".> Hear my prayer, O "I AM", 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM", and all the kings of the earth Thy glory.
102:16 When the "I AM" 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 "I AM".
102:19 For He hath looked down from the height of His Sanctuary; from heaven did the "I AM" behold the earth;
102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner (everyone on this prison planet); to free (only) those (who repent) that He has sentenced to death (every sinner);
102:21 To declare the name of the "I AM" in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem;
102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the "I AM".
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 (re-incarnated):
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 "I AM", O my soul: and all that is within me, [bless] His holy name.
103:2 Bless the "I AM", 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM" hath prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom ruleth over all.
103:20 Bless the "I AM", ye His angels, that excel in strength, that do His Commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His Word (John 1).
103:21 Bless ye the "I AM", all [ye] His hosts; [ye] ministers of His, that do His pleasure.
103:22 Bless the "I AM", all His works in all places of His Dominion: bless the "I AM", O my soul.
104:1 Bless the "I AM", O my soul (Being). O "I AM" 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 (energy):
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 "I AM" 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM" shall endure for ever: the "I AM" 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM".
104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the "I AM", O my soul (Being). Praise ye the "I AM".
105:1 O give thanks unto the "I AM"; 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 "I AM".
105:4 Seek the "I AM", 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" 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 (Clear) 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 spoke, and there came diverse 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 broke the trees of their coasts.
105:34 He spoke, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and they were innumerable,
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 "I AM".
106:1 Praise ye the "I AM". O give thanks unto the "I AM"; for [He is] good: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the "I AM"? [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 "I AM", 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 inequity, 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 forgot 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 holy one of the "I AM".
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 forgot 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 "I AM".
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 broke 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 spoke unadvisedly with his lips.
106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the "I AM" 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 "I AM" 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 their sakes 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the "I AM".
107:1 O give thanks unto the "I AM", for [He is] good: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
107:2 Let the redeemed of the "I AM" 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" [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 had contempt for 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 "I AM" 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 broke their bonds asunder.
107:15 Oh that [men] would praise the "I AM" [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 asunder.
107:17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their inequities, 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM", 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 wits' end.
107:28 Then they cry unto the "I AM" 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 "I AM" [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 diminished 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 "I AM".
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 "I AM", 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 Law-giver (God's Laws);
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 useless [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 "I AM"; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
109:15 Let them be before the "I AM" 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 with which he is girded continually.
109:20 [Let] this [be] the reward of mine adversaries from the "I AM", and of them that speak evil against my soul.
109:21 But do Thou for me, O "I AM" 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 for lack 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 "I AM" my God: O save me according to Thy mercy:
109:27 That they may know that this [is] Thy hand; [that] Thou, "I AM", 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
110:2 The "I AM" 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 (Star): thou hast the dew of thy youth.
110:4 The "I AM" 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 great countries.
110:7 He shall drink of the brook in The Way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
111:1 Praise ye the "I AM". I will praise the "I AM" with [my] whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and [in] the congregation.
111:2 The works of the "I AM" [are] great, sought out by 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 "I AM" [is] Gracious and full of compassion.
111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear Him: He will always 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] Truth and Judgment; all His Commandments [are] sure.
111:8 They are established 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 "I AM" [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 "I AM". Blessed [is] the man [that] feareth the "I AM", [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 "I AM".
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 "I AM". Praise, O ye servants of the "I AM", praise the name of the "I AM".
113:2 Blessed be the name of the "I AM" from this time forth and for evermore.
113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the "I AM"'s name [is] to be praised.
113:4 The "I AM" [is] high above all nations, [and] His glory above the heavens.
113:5 Who [is] like unto the "I AM" 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 "I AM".
114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the House of Jacob from a people of strange language;
114:2 Judah (Judaea) 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM": He [is] their help and their shield.
115:10 O House of Aaron, trust in the "I AM": He [is] their help and their shield.
115:11 Ye that fear the "I AM", trust in the "I AM": He [is] their help and their shield.
115:12 The "I AM" 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 "I AM", [both] small and great.
115:14 The "I AM" shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
115:15 Ye [are] blessed by the "I AM" Which made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heaven, [even] the heavens, [are] the "I AM"'s: but the earth hath He given to the children of men.
115:17 The "dead" praise not the "I AM", neither any that go down into silence.
115:18 But we will bless the "I AM" from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the "I AM".
116:1 I love the "I AM", 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 got hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4 Then called I upon the name of the "I AM"; O "I AM", I beseech Thee, deliver my soul.
116:5 Gracious [is] the "I AM", and Righteous; yea, our God [is] merciful.
116:6 The "I AM" preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and He helped me.
116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the "I AM" 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 "I AM" 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 "I AM" [for] all His benefits toward me?
116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the "I AM".
116:14 I will pay my vows unto the "I AM" now in the presence of all His people.
116:15 Precious in the sight of the "I AM" [is] the death of His holy people.
116:16 O "I AM", 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 "I AM".
116:18 I will pay my vows unto the "I AM" now in the presence of all His people,
116:19 In the courts of the "I AM"'s House, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the "I AM".
117:1 O praise the "I AM", all ye nations: praise Him, all ye people.
117:2 For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the Truth of the "I AM" [endureth] for ever. Praise ye the "I AM".
118:1 O give thanks unto the "I AM"; 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 "I AM" say, that His mercy [endureth] for ever.
118:5 I called upon the "I AM" in distress: the "I AM" answered me, [and set me] in a large place.
118:6 The "I AM" [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
118:7 The "I AM" 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 "I AM" than to put confidence in man.
118:9 [It is] better to trust in the "I AM" than to put confidence in princes.
118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the "I AM" will I destroy them.
118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the "I AM" 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 "I AM" I will destroy them.
118:13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the "I AM" helped me.
118:14 The "I AM" [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 "I AM" doeth valiantly.
118:16 The right hand of the "I AM" is exalted: the right hand of the "I AM" doeth valiantly.
118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the "I AM".
118:18 The "I AM" 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 "I AM":
118:20 This gate of the "I AM", 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 "I AM"'s doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes.
118:24 This [is] the day [which] the "I AM" hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
118:25 Save now, I beseech Thee, O "I AM": O "I AM", I beseech Thee, send now prosperity.
118:26 Blessed [be] he that cometh in the name of the "I AM": we have blessed you out of The House of the "I AM".
118:27 God [is] the "I AM", 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 "I AM"; 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 "I AM".
119:2 Blessed [are] they that keep His testimonies, [and that] seek Him with the WHOLE heart.
119:3 They also do no inequity: 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. With what 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 "I AM": 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 Covenants, 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 Principles: 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM", 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 Way 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 Principles: quicken me in Thy Righteousness.
119:41 VAU. Let Thy mercies come also unto me, O "I AM", [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 Principles.
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 mockery: [yet] have I not declined from Thy Law.
119:52 I remembered Thy Judgments of old, O "I AM"; 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 (Hajj).
119:55 I have remembered Thy name, O "I AM", in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
119:56 This I had, because I kept Thy Principles.
119:57 CHETH. [Thou art] my portion, O "I AM": I have said that I would keep Thy words.
119:58 I intreated 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 bonds 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 "I AM", is full of Thy mercy: teach me Thy Statutes.
119:65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with Thy servant, O "I AM", 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 "I AM", 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 principles.
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, which [are] not following Thy Law, have digged pits for me.
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 Covenant of Thy mouth.
119:89 LAMED. For ever, O "I AM", 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 "I AM", according unto Thy word.
119:108 Accept, I beseech Thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O "I AM", 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 always, [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], "I AM", 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 (Being) 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 inequity 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM": I will keep Thy Statutes.
119:146 I cried unto Thee; save me, and I shall keep Thy Testimonies.
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 "I AM", 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 "I AM"; and all Thy Commandments [are] Truth.
119:152 Concerning Thy Testimonies, I have known of old that Thou hast established 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.
119:156 Great [are] Thy tender mercies, O "I AM": quicken me according to Thy Judgments.
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 "I AM", 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.
119:166 "I AM", I have hoped for Thy salvation, and done Thy Commandments.
119:167 My soul hath kept Thy Testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.
119:168 I have kept Thy Principles and Thy Testimonies: for all my ways [are] before Thee.
119:169 TAU. Let my cry come near before Thee, O "I AM": give me Understanding according to Thy word.
119:170 Let my supplication come before Thee: deliver me according to Thy word.
119:171 My lips shall utter praise, when Thou hast taught me Thy Statutes.
119:172 My tongue shall speak of Thy word: for all Thy Commandments [are] Righteousness.
119:173 Let Thine hand help me; for I have chosen Thy precepts.
119:174 I have longed for Thy salvation, O "I AM"; and Thy Law [is] my delight.
119:175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise Thee; and let Thy Judgments help me.
119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Thy servant; for I do not forget Thy Commandments.
120:1 <A Song of emphasis.> In my distress I cried unto the "I AM", and He heard me.
120:2 Deliver my soul, O "I AM", 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 (Darkness)!
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 emphasis.> I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
121:2 My help [cometh] from the "I AM", 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 "I AM" [is] thy keeper: the "I AM" [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 "I AM" shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.
121:8 The "I AM" shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
122:1 <A Song of emphasis of David.> I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into The House of the "I AM".
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 Where the tribes go up, the tribes of the "I AM", unto the Covenant of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the "I AM".
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 "I AM" our God I will seek thy good.
123:1 <A Song of emphasis.> 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 "I AM" our God, until He have mercy upon us.
123:3 Have mercy upon us, O "I AM", 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 emphasis of David.> If [it had not been] the "I AM" Who was on our side, now may Israel say;
124:2 If [it had not been] the "I AM" 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM", Who made heaven and earth.
125:1 <A Song of emphasis.> They that trust in the "I AM" [shall be] as mount Zion, [which] cannot be removed, [but] abideth for ever.
125:2 As the mountains [are] round about Jerusalem, so the "I AM" [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 "I AM", 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 "I AM" shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: [but] peace [shall be] upon Israel.
126:1 <A Song of emphasis.> When the "I AM" 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 "I AM" hath done great things for them.
126:3 The "I AM" hath done great things for us; [whereof] we are glad.
126:4 Turn again our captivity, O "I AM", 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 emphasis for Solomon.> Unless the "I AM" build The House, they labour in vain that build it: unless the "I AM" 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 "I AM": [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 emphasis.> Blessed [is] every one that feareth the "I AM"; 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 "I AM".
128:5 The "I AM" 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 emphasis.> 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 "I AM" [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 before 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 "I AM" [be] upon you: we bless you in the name of the "I AM".
130:1 <A Song of emphasis.> Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O "I AM".
130:2 Lord, hear my voice: let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
130:3 If Thou, "I AM", 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 "I AM", 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 "I AM": for with the "I AM" [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 emphasis of David.> "I AM", 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 "I AM" from henceforth and for ever.
132:1 <A Song of emphasis.> "I AM", remember David, [and] all his afflictions:
132:2 How he sware unto the "I AM", [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 "I AM", 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 "I AM", into Thy rest; Thou, and the Ark of Thy strength.
132:9 Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let Thy holy people shout for joy.
132:10 For Thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of Thine anointed.
132:11 The "I AM" 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 "I AM" 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 holy ones 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 emphasis 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 "I AM" commanded the blessing, [even] life for evermore.
134:1 <A Song of emphasis.> Behold, bless ye the "I AM", all [ye] servants of the "I AM", which by night stand in The House of the "I AM".
134:2 Lift up your hands [in] The Sanctuary, and bless the "I AM".
134:3 The "I AM" that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
135:1 Praise ye the "I AM". Praise ye the name of the "I AM"; praise [Him], O ye servants of the "I AM".
135:2 Ye that stand in The House of the "I AM", in the courts of The House of our God,
135:3 Praise the "I AM"; for the "I AM" [is] good: sing praises unto His name; for [it is] pleasant.
135:4 For the "I AM" hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, [and] Israel for His peculiar treasure.
135:5 For I know that the "I AM" [is] great, and [that] our Lord [is] above all gods.
135:6 Whatsoever the "I AM" 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 (Clear) Signs 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 "I AM", [endureth] for ever; [and] thy memorial, O "I AM", throughout all generations.
135:14 For the "I AM" 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 "I AM", O House of Israel: bless the "I AM", O House of Aaron:
135:20 Bless the "I AM", O House of Levi: ye that fear the "I AM", bless the "I AM".
135:21 Blessed be the "I AM" out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the "I AM".
136:1 O give thanks unto the "I AM"; 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.
136:6 To Him That stretched out the earth above the waters: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:7 To Him That made great lights: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:8 The sun to rule by day: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:9 The moon and stars to rule by night: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:10 To Him That smote Egypt in their firstborn: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:11 And brought out Israel from among them: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:13 To Him Which divided the Red sea into parts: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:16 To Him Which led His people through the wilderness: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:17 To Him Which smote great kings: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:18 And slew famous kings: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:20 And Og the king of Bashan: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:21 And gave their land for an heritage: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:22 [Even] an heritage unto Israel His servant: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for His mercy [endureth] for ever:
136:24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
136:26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for His mercy [endureth] for ever.
137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
137:3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us [required of us] mirth, [saying], Sing us [one] of the songs of Zion.
137:4 How shall we sing the "I AM"'s song in a strange land?
137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget [her cunning].
137:6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
137:7 Remember, O "I AM", the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase [it], rase [it, even] to the foundation thereof.
137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy [shall he be], that rewardeth thee as thou hast done to us.
137:9 Happy [shall he be], that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
138:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> I will praise Thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto Thee.
138:2 I will worship toward Thy Holy Temple, and praise Thy name for Thy lovingkindness and for Thy Truth: for Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name.
138:3 In the day when I cried Thou answeredst me, [and] strengthenedst me [with] strength in my soul.
138:4 All the kings of the earth shall praise Thee, O "I AM", when they hear the words of Thy mouth.
138:5 Yea, they shall sing in The Ways of the "I AM": for great [is] the glory of the "I AM".
138:6 Though the "I AM" [be] high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly: but the proud He knoweth afar off.
138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, Thou wilt revive me: Thou shalt stretch forth Thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and Thy right hand shall save me.
138:8 The "I AM" will perfect [that which] concerneth me: Thy mercy, O "I AM", [endureth] for ever: forsake not the works of Thine own hands.
139:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> O "I AM", Thou hast searched me, and known [me].
139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, Thou understandest my thought afar off.
139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted [with] all my ways.
139:4 For [there is] not a word in my tongue, [but], lo, O "I AM", Thou knowest it altogether.
139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid Thine hand upon me.
139:6 [Such] Knowledge [is] too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot [attain] unto it.
139:7 Where shall I go from thy spirit? Or where shall I flee from Thy presence?
139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, Thou [art] there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, Thou [art there].
139:9 [If] I take the wings of the morning, [and] dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
139:10 Even there shall Thy hand lead me, and Thy right hand shall hold me.
139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from Thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light [are] both alike [to Thee].
139:13 For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
139:14 I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] Thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.
139:15 My substance was not hid from Thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfected; and in Thy Book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them.
139:17 How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
139:18 [If] I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.
139:19 Surely Thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
139:20 For they speak against Thee wickedly, [and] Thine enemies take [Thy name] in vain.
139:21 Do not I hate them, O "I AM", that hate Thee? And am not I grieved with those that rise up against Thee?
139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
139:24 And see if [there be any] wicked way in me, and lead me in The Way Everlasting.
140:1 <To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.> Deliver me, O "I AM", from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
140:2 Which imagine mischiefs in [their] heart; continually are they gathered together [for] war.
140:3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison [is] under their lips. The rock.
140:4 Keep me, O "I AM", from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
140:5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. The rock.
140:6 I said unto the "I AM", Thou [art] my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O "I AM".
140:7 O "I AM" the Lord, the strength of my salvation, Thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
140:8 Grant not, O "I AM", the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; [lest] they exalt themselves. The rock.
140:9 [As for] the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
140:10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
140:11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow [him].
140:12 I know that the "I AM" will maintain the cause of the afflicted, [and] the right of the poor.
140:13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto Thy name: the upright shall dwell in Thy presence.
141:1 <A Psalm of David.> "I AM", I cry unto Thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto Thee.
141:2 Let my prayer be set forth before Thee [as] incense; [and] the lifting up of my hands [as] the evening sacrifice.
141:3 Set a watch, O "I AM", before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
141:4 Incline not my heart to [any] evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
141:5 Let the righteous smite me; [it shall be] a kindness: and let him reprove me; [it shall be] an excellent oil, [which] shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also [shall be] in their calamities.
141:6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.
141:7 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth [wood] upon the earth.
141:8 But mine eyes [are] unto Thee, O "I AM" the Lord: in Thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
141:9 Keep me from the snares [which] they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.
141:10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
142:1 <Maschil of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave.> I cried unto the "I AM" with my voice; with my voice unto the "I AM" did I make my supplication.
142:2 I poured out my complaint before Him; I showed before Him my trouble.
142:3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then Thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
142:4 I looked on [my] right hand, and beheld, but [there was] no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
142:5 I cried unto Thee, O "I AM": I said, Thou [art] my refuge [and] my portion in the land of the living.
142:6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
142:7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for Thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
143:1 <A Psalm of David.> Hear my prayer, O "I AM", give ear to my supplications: in Thy faithfulness answer me, [and] in Thy Righteousness.
143:2 And enter not into Judgment of Thy servant: for in Thy sight shall no man living be justified.
143:3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
143:4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
143:5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Thy works; I muse on the work of Thy hands.
143:6 I stretch forth my hands unto Thee: my soul [thirsteth] after Thee, as a thirsty land. The rock.
143:7 Hear me speedily, O "I AM": my spirit faileth: hide not Thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
143:8 Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in Thee do I trust: cause me to know The Way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul (Being) unto Thee.
143:9 Deliver me, O "I AM", from mine enemies: I flee unto Thee to hide me.
143:10 Teach me to do Thy Will; for Thou [art] my God: Thy spirit [is] good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
143:11 Quicken me, O "I AM", for Thy name's sake: for Thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
143:12 And of Thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I [am] Thy servant.
144:1 <[A Psalm] of David.> Blessed [be] the "I AM" my strength, Which teacheth my hands to war, [and] my fingers to fight:
144:2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and [He] in Whom I trust; Who subdueth my people under me.
144:3 "I AM", what [is] man, that Thou dost regard him! [or] the son of man, that Thou makest account of him!
144:4 Man is like to vanity: his days [are] as a shadow that passeth away.
144:5 Bow Thy heavens, O "I AM", and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
144:6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out Thine arrows, and destroy them.
144:7 Send Thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
144:8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood.
144:9 I will sing a new song unto Thee, O God: upon a psaltery [and] an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto Thee.
144:10 [It is He] that giveth salvation unto kings: Who delivereth David His servant from the hurtful sword.
144:11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand [is] a right hand of falsehood:
144:12 That our sons [may be] as plants grown up in their youth; [that] our daughters [may be] as corner stones, polished [after] the similitude of a palace:
144:13 [That] our garners [may be] full, affording all manner of store: [that] our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
144:14 [That] our oxen [may be] strong to labour; [that there be] no breaking in, nor going out; that [there be] no complaining in our streets.
144:15 Happy [is that] people, that is in such a case: [yea], happy [is that] people, whose God [is] the "I AM".
145:1 <David's [Psalm] of praise.> I will extol Thee, my God, O King; and I will bless Thy name for ever and ever.
145:2 Every day will I bless Thee; and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever.
145:3 Great [is] the "I AM", and greatly to be praised; and His greatness [is] unsearchable.
145:4 One generation shall praise Thy works to another, and shall declare Thy mighty acts.
145:5 I will speak of the glorious honour of Thy Majesty, and of Thy wondrous works.
145:6 And [men] shall speak of the might of Thy terrible acts: and I will declare Thy greatness.
145:7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of Thy great goodness, and shall sing of Thy Righteousness.
145:8 The "I AM" [is] Gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
145:9 The "I AM" [is] good to all: and His tender mercies [are] over all His works.
145:10 All Thy works shall praise Thee, O "I AM"; and Thy holy people shall bless Thee.
145:11 They shall speak of the glory of Thy Kingdom, and talk of Thy power;
145:12 To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His Kingdom.
145:13 Thy Kingdom [is] an Everlasting Kingdom, and Thy Dominion [endureth] throughout all generations.
145:14 The "I AM" upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all [those that be] bowed down.
145:15 The eyes of all wait upon Thee; and Thou givest them their meat in due season.
145:16 Thou openest Thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
145:17 The "I AM" [is] Righteous in all His Ways, and holy in all His works.
145:18 The "I AM" [is] nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in Truth.
145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him: He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
145:20 The "I AM" preserveth all them that love Him: but all the wicked will He destroy.
145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the "I AM": and let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.
146:1 Praise ye the "I AM". Praise the "I AM", O my soul.
146:2 While I live will I praise the "I AM": I will sing praises unto my God while I have my Being.
146:3 Put not your trust in princes, [nor] in the son of man, in whom [there is] no help.
146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
146:5 Happy [is he] that [hath] the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope [is] in the "I AM" his God:
146:6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein [is]: Which keepeth Truth for ever:
146:7 Which executeth Judgment for the oppressed: Which giveth food to the hungry. The "I AM" looseth the prisoners:
146:8 The "I AM" openeth [the eyes of] the blind: the "I AM" raiseth them that are bowed down: the "I AM" loveth the righteous:
146:9 The "I AM" preserveth the strangers; He relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down.
146:10 The "I AM" shall Reign for ever, [even] thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the "I AM".
147:1 Praise ye the "I AM": for [it is] good to sing praises unto our God; for [it is] pleasant; [and] praise is comely.
147:2 The "I AM" doth build up Jerusalem: He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by [their] names.
147:5 Great [is] our Lord, and of great power: His understanding [is] infinite.
147:6 The "I AM" lifteth up the meek: He casteth the wicked down to the ground.
147:7 Sing unto the "I AM" with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
147:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, Who prepareth rain for the earth, Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
147:9 He giveth to the beast his food, [and] to the young ravens which cry.
147:10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
147:11 The "I AM" taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that hope in His mercy.
147:12 Praise the "I AM", O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
147:13 For He hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; He hath blessed thy children within thee.
147:14 He maketh peace [in] thy borders, [and] filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
147:15 He sendeth forth His commandment [upon] earth: His word runneth very swiftly.
147:16 He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
147:17 He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?
147:18 He sendeth out His Word, and melteth them: He causeth His wind to blow, [and] the waters flow.
147:19 He showeth His Word unto Jacob, His Statutes and His Judgments unto Israel.
147:20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and [as for His] Judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the "I AM".
148:1 Praise ye the "I AM". Praise ye the "I AM" from the heavens: praise Him in the heights.
148:2 Praise ye Him, all His angels: praise ye Him, all His hosts.
148:3 Praise ye Him, sun and moon: praise Him, all ye stars of light.
148:4 Praise Him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that [be] above the heavens.
148:5 Let them praise the name of the "I AM": for He commanded, and they were created.
148:6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass.
148:7 Praise the "I AM" from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
148:8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word:
148:9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
148:10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
148:11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
148:12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
148:13 Let them praise the name of the "I AM": for His name alone is excellent; His glory [is] above the earth and heaven.
148:14 He also exalteth the horn of His people, the praise of all His holy people; the Children of Israel, a people near unto Him. Praise ye the "I AM".

149:4 For the "I AM" taketh pleasure in His people: He will beautify the meek with salvation.
149:5 Let the holy people be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
149:6 [Let] the high [praises] of God [be] in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;
149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, [and] punishments upon the people;
149:8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
149:9 To execute upon them the Judgment written: this honour have all His holy people. Praise ye the "I AM".
150:1 Praise ye the "I AM". Praise God in His Sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of His power.
