Part 26 out of 50
82:5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in
darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
82:6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most
82:7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all
83:1 Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not
still, O God.
83:2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee
have lifted up the head.
83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted
against thy hidden ones.
83:4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a
nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are
confederate against thee:
83:6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the
83:7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the
inhabitants of Tyre;
83:8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of
83:9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin,
at the brook of Kison:
83:10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.
83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their
princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:
83:12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in
83:13 O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the
83:14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the
mountains on fire;
83:15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with
83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O
83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be
put to shame, and perish:
83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art
the most high over all the earth.
84:1 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD:
my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
84:3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for
herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of
hosts, my King, and my God.
84:4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still
praising thee. Selah.
84:5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are
the ways of them.
84:6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain
also filleth the pools.
84:7 They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion
appeareth before God.
84:8 O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob.
84:9 Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine
84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather
be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of
84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace
and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk
84:12 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
85:1 Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought
back the captivity of Jacob.
85:2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered
all their sin. Selah.
85:3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from
the fierceness of thine anger.
85:4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us
85:5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine
anger to all generations?
85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in
85:7 Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
85:8 I will hear what God the LORD will speak: for he will speak peace
unto his people, and to his saints: but let them not turn again to
85:9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may
dwell in our land.
85:10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have
kissed each other.
85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall
look down from heaven.
85:12 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall
yield her increase.
85:13 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way
of his steps.
86:1 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
86:2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant
that trusteth in thee.
86:3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
86:4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift
up my soul.
86:5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in
mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
86:6 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my
86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt
86:8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O 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
86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my
heart to fear thy name.
86:12 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will
glorify thy name for evermore.
86:13 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my
soul from the lowest hell.
86:14 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of
violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before
86:15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious,
long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
86:16 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto
thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
86:17 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it,
and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.
87:1 His foundation is in the holy mountains.
87:2 The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of
87:3 Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.
87:4 I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me:
behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born 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 LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this
man was born there. Selah.
87:7 As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there:
all my springs are in thee.
88:1 O lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before
88:2 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
88:3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto
88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man
that hath no strength:
88:5 Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom
thou rememberest no more: and they are cut off from thy 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. Selah.
88:8 Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made
me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.
88:9 Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: LORD, I have called
daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.
88:10 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and
praise thee? Selah.
88:11 Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy
faithfulness in destruction?
88:12 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in
the land of forgetfulness?
88:13 But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my
prayer prevent thee.
88:14 LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face
88:15 I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer
thy terrors I am distracted.
88:16 Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
88:17 They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me
88:18 Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine
acquaintance into darkness.
89:1 I will sing of the mercies of the LORD 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
89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to
all generations. Selah.
89:5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy
faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among
the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to
be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD 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
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 LORD, 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 LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our
89:19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have
laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of
89:20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed
89:21 With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall
89:22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness
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
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
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
89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful
witness in heaven. Selah.
89:38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with
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
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
89:45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him
with shame. Selah.
89:46 How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath
burn like fire?
89:47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men
89:48 What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he
deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
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 LORD; wherewith they
have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
89:52 Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
90:1 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
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
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
90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy
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
90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish
thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands
establish thou it.
91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide
under the shadow of the Almighty.
91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God;
in him will I trust.
91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and
from the noisome pestilence.
91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt
thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the
arrow that flieth by day;
91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the
destruction that wasteth at noonday.
91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right
hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the
91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the
most High, thy habitation;
91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come
nigh thy dwelling.
91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in
all thy ways.
91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot
against a stone.
91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the
dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver
him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him
in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
92:1 IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD, AND TO SING
PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH:
92:2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy
faithfulness every night,
92:3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon
the harp with a solemn sound.
92:4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will
triumph in the works of thy hands.
92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
92:6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
92:7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of
iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
92:8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
92:9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall
perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I
shall be anointed with fresh oil.
92:11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears
shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow
like a cedar in Lebanon.
92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in
the courts of our God.
92:14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat
92:15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no
unrighteousness in him.
93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is
clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world
also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
93:2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
93:3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up
their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
93:4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea,
than the mighty waves of the sea.
93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O
LORD, for ever.
94:1 O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance
belongeth, shew thyself.
94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the
94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked
94:4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the
workers of iniquity boast themselves?
94:5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine
94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
94:7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of
Jacob regard it.
94:8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will
ye be wise?
94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the
eye, shall he not see?
94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that
teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
94:12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest
him out of thy law;
94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until
the pit be digged for the wicked.
94:14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he
forsake his inheritance.
94:15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the
upright in heart shall follow it.
94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand
up for me against the workers of iniquity?
94:17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in
94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight
94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which
frameth mischief by a law?
94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the
righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
94:22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut
them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them
95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to
the rock of our salvation.
95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a
joyful noise unto him with psalms.
95:3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
95:4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the
hills is his also.
95:5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry
95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD
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
95:11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my
96:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the
96:2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from
day to day.
96:3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all
96:4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be
feared above all gods.
96:5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the
96:6 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his
96:7 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the
LORD glory and strength.
96:8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an
offering, and come into his courts.
96:9 O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him,
all the earth.
96:10 Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth: the world also
shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the
96:11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea
roar, and the fulness thereof.
96:12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all
the trees of the wood rejoice
96:13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the
earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people
with his truth.
97:1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of
isles be glad thereof.
97:2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and
judgment are the habitation of his throne.
97:3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and
97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the
presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
97:6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his
97:7 Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast
themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.
97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced
because of thy judgments, O LORD.
97:9 For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted
far above all gods.
97:10 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his
saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
97:11 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in
97:12 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the
remembrance of his holiness.
98:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous
things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
98:2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he
openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
98:3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of
Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
98:4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud
noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
98:5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of
98:6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the
LORD, the King.
98:7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they
that dwell therein.
98:8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
98:9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with
righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
99:1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the
cherubims; let the earth be moved.
99:2 The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.
99:3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.
99:4 The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish
equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
99:5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he
99:6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that
call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.
99:7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his
testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.
99:8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that
forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.
99:9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the
LORD our God is holy.
100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with
100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and
not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with
praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth
endureth to all generations.
101:1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I
101:2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou
come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of
them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
101:4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked
101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him
that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
101:6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may
dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that
telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut
off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
102:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble;
incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.
102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as
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
102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the
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
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
102:12 But thou, O LORD, shall 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
102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the
kings of the earth thy glory.
102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his
102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise
102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the
people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from
heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are
appointed to death;
102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in
102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to
serve the LORD.
102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy
years are throughout all generations.
102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the
heavens are the work of thy hands.
102:26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them
shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and
they shall be changed:
102:27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed
shall be established before thee.
103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his
103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy
103:4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with
lovingkindness and tender mercies;
103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is
renewed like the eagle's.
103:6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are
103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of
103:8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous
103:9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for
103:10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us
according to our iniquities.
103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his
mercy toward them that fear him.
103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our
transgressions from us.
103:13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them
that fear him.
103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
103:15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so
103:16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place
thereof shall know it no more.
103:17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's
103:18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his
commandments to do them.
103:19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his
kingdom ruleth over all.
103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do
his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
103:21 Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that
do his pleasure.
103:22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion:
bless the LORD, O my soul.
104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great;
thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
104:2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who
stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh
the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be
removed for ever.
104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters
stood above the mountains.
104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted
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
104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses
quench their thirst.
104:12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation,
which sing among the branches.
104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied
with the fruit of thy works.
104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the
service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
104:15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his
face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.
104:16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon,
which he hath planted;
104:17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir
trees are her house.
104:18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks
for the conies.
104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going
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
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
104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made
them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
104:25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping
innumerable, both small and great beasts.
104:26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast
made to play therein.
104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat
in due season.
104:28 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand,
they are filled with good.
104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their
breath, they die, and return to their dust.
104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou
renewest the face of the earth.
104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall
rejoice in his works.
104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the
hills, and they smoke.
104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise
to my God while I have my being.
104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the
104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the
wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his
deeds among the people.
105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous
105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that
seek the LORD.
105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders,
and the judgments of his mouth;
105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his
105:7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he
commanded to a thousand generations.
105:9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for
an everlasting covenant:
105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of
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
105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for
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
105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried
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
105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of
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 subtilly with
105:26 He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.
105:27 They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of
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
105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all
105:32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the
trees of their coasts.
105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that
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
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
105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the
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
105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the
labour of the people;
105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise
ye the LORD.
106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:
for his mercy endureth for ever.
106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth
all his praise?
106:3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth
righteousness at all times.
106:4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy
people: O visit me with thy salvation;
106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the
gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we
have done wickedly.
106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered
not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at
the Red sea.
106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might
make his mighty power to be known.
106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them
through the depths, as through the wilderness.
106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and
redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them
106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in
106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their
106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the
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
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
106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in
106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the
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
106:25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice
of the LORD.
106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them
in the wilderness:
106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter
them in the lands.
106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the
sacrifices of the dead.
106:29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the
plague brake in upon them.
106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the
plague was stayed.
106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all
generations for evermore.
106:32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went
ill with Moses for their sakes:
106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly
with his lips.
106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD
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
106:38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of
their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and
the land was polluted with blood.
106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring
with their own inventions.
106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people,
insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that
hated them ruled over them.
106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into
subjection under their hand.
106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with
their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their
106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according
to the multitude of his mercies.
106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them
106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen,
to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.
106:48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to
everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
107:1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy
endureth for ever.
107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from
the hand of the enemy;
107:3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the
west, from the north, and from the south.
107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no
city to dwell in.
107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered
them out of their distresses.
107:7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a
city of habitation.
107:8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his
wonderful works to the children of men!
107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul
107:10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound
in affliction and iron;
107:11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned
the counsel of the most High:
107:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell
down, and there was none to help.
107:13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved
them out of their distresses.
107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and
brake their bands in sunder.
107:15 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his
wonderful works to the children of men!
107:16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron
107:17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their
iniquities, are afflicted.
107:18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near
unto the gates of death.
107:19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth
them out of their distresses.
107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from
107:21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his
wonderful works to the children of men!
107:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and
declare his works with rejoicing.
107:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in
107:24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
107:25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth
up the waves thereof.
107:26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths:
their soul is melted because of trouble.
107:27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are
at their wit's end.
107:28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth
them out of their distresses.
107:29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are
107:30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them
unto their desired haven.
107:31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his
wonderful works to the children of men!
107:32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and
praise him in the assembly of the elders.
107:33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into
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
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
107:38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and
suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
107:39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression,
affliction, and sorrow.
107:40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in
the wilderness, where there is no way.
107:41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him
families like a flock.
107:42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall
stop her mouth.
107:43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall
understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
108:1 O god, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with
108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
108:3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing
praises unto thee among the nations.
108:4 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth
unto the clouds.
108:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above
all the earth;
108:6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and
108:7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide
Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
108:8 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength
of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
108:9 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over
Philistia will I triumph.
108:10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into
108:11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou,
O God, go forth with our hosts?
108:12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
108:13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall
tread down our enemies.
109:1 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
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
109:7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his
prayer become sin.
109:8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
109:9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
109:10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them
seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
109:11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the
strangers spoil his labour.
109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there
be any to favour his fatherless children.
109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following
let their name be blotted out.
109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD;
and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off
the memory of them from the earth.
109:16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted
the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
109:17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted
not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
109:18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so
let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
109:19 Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a
girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
109:20 Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and
of them that speak evil against my soul.
109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake:
because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.
109:22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and
down as the locust.
109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of
109:25 I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me
they shaked their heads.
109:26 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
109:27 That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast
109:28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be
ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover
themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will
praise him among the multitude.
109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him
from those that condemn his soul.
110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I
make thine enemies thy footstool.
110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule
thou in the midst of thine enemies.
110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the
beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew
of thy youth.
110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for
ever after the order of Melchizedek.
110:5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day
of his wrath.
110:6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with
the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
110:7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift
up the head.
111:1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart,
in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
111:2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that
have pleasure therein.
111:3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness
endureth for ever.
111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is
gracious and full of compassion.
111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be
mindful of his covenant.
111:6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may
give them the heritage of the heathen.
111:7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his
commandments are sure.
111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and
111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his
covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good
understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise
endureth for ever.
112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD,
that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the
upright shall be blessed.
112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness
endureth for ever.
112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is
gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
112:5 A good man sheweth 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
112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed,
trusting in the LORD.
112:8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see
his desire upon his enemies.
112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness
endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with
his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise
the name of the LORD.
113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for
113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the
LORD's name is to be praised.
113:4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the
113:5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
113:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven,
and in the earth!
113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy
out of the dunghill;
113:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his
113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful
mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people
of strange language;
114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
114:3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like
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,
114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the
presence of the God of Jacob;
114:8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a
fountain of waters.
115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory,
for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath
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
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they
115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they
walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that
trusteth in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their
115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their
115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and
115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will
bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your
115:15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth
hath he given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into
115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for
Praise the LORD.
116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my
116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call
upon him as long as I live.
116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat
hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
116:4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee,
deliver my soul.
116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped
116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt
bountifully with thee.
116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from
tears, and my feet from falling.
116:9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
116:11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.
116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward
116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the
116:14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his
116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
116:16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son
of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will
call upon the name of the LORD.
116:18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his
116:19 In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O
Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
117:1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of
the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy
endureth for ever.
118:2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for
118:4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for
118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and
set me in a large place.
118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto
118:7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall
I see my desire upon them that hate me.
118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
118:9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in
118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD
will I destroy them.
118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in
the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the
fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
118:13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD
118:14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of
the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the
LORD doeth valiantly.
118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over
118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and
I will praise the LORD:
118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my
118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone
of the corner.
118:23 This is the LORD's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and
be glad in it.
118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send
118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have
blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
118:27 God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice
with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
118:28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I
will exalt thee.
118:29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy
endureth for ever.
