from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.

{ heart }   [PS] 17v10

They have now compassed us in our steps;
they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth,

{ heart }   [PS] 17v12

and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

{ heart }   [PS] 17v13

Arise, O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down;
deliver my soul from the wicked, which is THY sword:

{ heart }   [PS] 17v14

From men which are THY hand, O LORD,
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.

{ heart }   [PS] 17v15

As for me, I will behold THY face in righteousness;
I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with THY likeness.

And he said,

I will love THEE, O LORD, my STRENGTH.

There went up a smoke out of HIS nostrils,
and fire out of HIS mouth devoured;
coals were kindled by it.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v9

HE bowed the heavens also, and came down;
and darkness was under HIS feet.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v10

And HE rode upon a Cherub, and did fly;
yea, HE did fly upon the wings of the wind.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v11

HE made darkness HIS secret place;
HIS pavilion round about HIM were dark waters
and thick clouds of the skies.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v12

At the brightness that was before HIM
HIS thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v13

The LORD also thundered in the heavens,
and the HIGHEST gave HIS voice,
hail stones and coals of fire.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v14

Yea, HE sent out HIS arrows, and scattered them;
and HE shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

at THY rebuke, O LORD,
at the blast of the breath of THY nostrils.

THOU wilt show THYSELF merciful;

I have wounded them that they were not able to rise;
they are fallen under my feet.

For THOU hast girded me with strength
unto the battle;
THOU hast subdued under me
those that rose up against me.

THOU hast also given me
the necks of mine enemies;
that I might destroy them that hate me.

{ heart }   [PS] 18v41

They cried, but there was none to save them;
even unto the LORD, but HE answered them not.

Then did I beat them small,
as the dust before the wind;
I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

¶ Psalms 38 v1-10

{ heart }   [PS] 38v1

A psalm of David, to bring to remembrance.

O LORD, rebuke me not in THY wrath;
neither chasten me in THY hot displeasure.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v2

For THINE arrows stick fast in me,
and THY hand presseth me sore.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v3

There is no soundness in my flesh
because of THINE anger;
neither is there any rest in my bones
because of my sin.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v4

For mine iniquities are gone over mine head;
as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v5

My wounds are stink and corrupt
because of my foolishness.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v6

I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly;
I go mourning all the day long.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v7

For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease;
and there is no soundness in my flesh.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v8


I am feeble and sore broken;
I have roared by reason of the disquietness
of my heart.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v9

LORD, all my desire is before THEE;
and my groaning is not hid from THEE.

My heart panteth, my strength faileth me;
as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

¶ Psalms 38 v11-22

{ heart }   [PS] 38v11

My lovers and my friends stand aloof
from my sore;
and my kinsmen stand afar off.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v12

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v13

But I, as a deaf man, heard not;
and I was as a dumb man
that openeth not his mouth.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v14

Thus I was as a man that heareth not,
and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v15

For in THEE, O LORD, do I hope;
THOU wilt hear, O LORD my GOD.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v16

For I said,

 ‘Hear me,
lest otherwise they should rejoice over me:
when my foot slippeth,
they magnify themselves against me’.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v17

For I am ready to halt,
and my sorrow is continually before me.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v18

For I will declare

 ‘Mine iniquity’; 

I will be sorry for my sin.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v19

But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong;
and they that hate me wrongfully, are multiplied.

{ heart }   [PS] 38v20

They also that render evil for good,
are mine adversaries:
because I follow the thing that is good.

I will keep my mouth with a bridle,
while the wicked is before me.

{ heart }   [PS] 39v2

I was dumb with silence,
I held my peace, even from good;

My heart was hot within me;
while I was musing, the fire burnt;
then spake I with my tongue,

{ heart }   [PS] 39v4

LORD, make me to know

 ‘Mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is’; 

That I may know

Surely every man walketh in a vain show;

And now, LORD, what wait I for?
my hope is in THEE.

{ heart }   [PS] 39v8

Deliver me from all my transgressions;
make me not the reproach of the foolish.

{ heart }   [PS] 39v9

I was dumb, I opened not my mouth;
because THOU didst it.

{ heart }   [PS] 39v10

Remove THY stroke away from me;
I am consumed by the blow of THINE hand.

{ heart }   [PS] 39v11

When THOU with rebukes dost correct man
for iniquity,
THOU makest his beauty to consume away
like a moth.
surely every man is vanity.
Selah.

{ heart }   [PS] 39v12

Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry.
hold not THY peace at my tears:
for I am a stranger with THEE, and a sojourner,

HE brought me up also out of an horrible pit,
out of the miry clay,

and established my goings.

Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust,

Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me;

{ heart }   [PS] 71v1

In THEE, O LORD, do I put my trust;
let me never be put to confusion.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v2

Deliver me in THY righteousness,
and cause me to escape;
incline THINE ear unto me, and save me.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v3

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v4

Deliver me, O my GOD,
out of the hand of the wicked,
out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v5

For THOU art my hope, O LORD GOD;
THOU art my trust from my youth.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v6

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v7

I am as a wonder unto many,
but THOU art my strong REFUGE.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v8

Let my mouth be filled with THY praise
and with THY honor all the day.

¶ Psalms 71 v9-24

{ heart }   [PS] 71v9

Cast me not off in the time of old age;
forsake me not when my strength faileth.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v10

For mine enemies speak against me,
and they that lay wait for my soul
take counsel together,

{ heart }   [PS] 71v11

Saying,

 ‘GOD hath forsaken him:
persecute and take him,
for there is none to deliver him’.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v12

O GOD, be not far from me;
O my GOD, make haste for my help.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v13

Let them be confounded and consumed
that are adversaries to my soul;
let them be covered with reproach and dishonor
that seek my hurt.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v14

But I will hope continually,
and will yet praise THEE more and more.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v15

My mouth shall show forth THY righteousness
and THY salvation all the day;
for I know not the numbers thereof.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v16

I will go in the strength of the LORD GOD;
I will make mention

 ‘Of THY righteousness’, 

Even of THINE only.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v17

O GOD, THOU hast taught me from my youth;
and hitherto have I declared

 ‘THY wondrous works’.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v18

Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O GOD,
forsake me not:
until I have showed THY strength
unto this generation,
and THY power to every one that is to come.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v19

THY righteousness also, O GOD, is very high,
WHO hast done great things. O GOD,
who is like unto THEE?

{ heart }   [PS] 71v20

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v21

THOU shalt increase my greatness,
and comfort me on every side.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v22

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v23

My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto THEE;
and my soul, which THOU hast redeemed.

{ heart }   [PS] 71v24

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.

» Psalms 72

¶ Psalms 72 v1-7

{ heart }   [PS] 72v1

A psalm for Solomon.

Give the king THY ordinances, O GOD,
and THY righteousness unto the king's son.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v2

He shall judge THY people with righteousness,
and THY poor with udgment.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v3

The mountains shall bring peace to the people,
and the little hills, by righteousness.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v4

He shall judge the poor of the people,
HE shall save the children of the needy,
and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v5

They shall fear THEE
as long as the sun and moon endure,
throughout all generations.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v6

HE shall come down like rain upon the mown grass;
as showers that water the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v7

In HIS days shall the righteous flourish;
and abundance of peace
so long as the moon endureth.

¶ Psalms 72 v8-11

{ heart }   [PS] 72v8

HE shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v9

They that dwell in the wilderness
shall bow before HIM;
and HIS enemies shall lick the dust.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v10

The kings of Tarshish and of the isles
shall bring presents;
the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v11

Yea, all kings shall fall down before HIM;
all nations shall serve HIM.

¶ Psalms 72 v12-17

{ heart }   [PS] 72v12

For HE shall deliver the needy when he crieth;
the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v13

HE shall spare the poor and needy,
and shall save the souls of the needy.

and precious shall their blood be in HIS sight.

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v16

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 72v17

HIS NAME shall endure forever;
HIS NAME shall be continued as long as the sun;
and men shall be blessed in HIM;
all nations shall call HIM

 ‘Blessed’.

¶ Psalms 72 v18-19

{ heart }   [PS] 72v18

Blessed be the LORD GOD, the GOD of Israel,
WHO only doeth wondrous things.

are ended.

» Psalms 73

¶ Psalms 73 v1-14

{ heart }   [PS] 73v1

A psalm of Asaph.

Truly GOD is good to Israel,
even to such as are of a clean heart.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v2

But as for me, my feet were almost gone;
my steps had well nigh slipped.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v3

For I was envious at the foolish,
when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v4

For there are no bands in their death;
but their strength is firm.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v5

They are not in trouble as other men;
neither are they plagued like other men.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v6

Therefore, pride compasseth them about as a chain;
violence covereth them as a garment.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v7

Their eyes stand out with fatness;
they have more than heart could wish.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v8

They are corrupt,
and speak wickedly concerning oppression:
they speak loftily.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v9

They set their mouth against the heavens,
and their tongue walketh through the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v10

Therefore his people return hither,
and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v11

And they say,

 ‘How doth GOD know?
and is there knowledge in the MOST HIGH?’ 

{ heart }   [PS] 73v12

Behold, these are the ungodly:
who prosper in the world, they increase in riches.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v13

Verily, I have cleansed my heart in vain,
and washed my hands in innocence.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v14

For all the day long have I been plagued,
and chastened every morning.

¶ Psalms 73 v15-20

{ heart }   [PS] 73v15

If I say,

 ‘I will speak thus’; 

Behold, I should offend
against the generation of THY children.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v16

When I thought to know this,
it was too painful for me;

{ heart }   [PS] 73v17

Until I went into the sanctuary of GOD;
then understood I their end.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v18

Surely, THOU didst set them in slippery places;
THOU castedst them down into destruction.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v19

How are they brought into desolation,
as in a moment?
they are utterly consumed with terrors.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v20

As a dream when one awaketh;
so, O LORD, when THOU awakest,
THOU shalt despise their image.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v21

Thus my heart was grieved,
and I was pricked in my reins.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v22

So foolish was I, and ignorant;
I was as a beast before THEE.

¶ Psalms 73 v23-28

{ heart }   [PS] 73v23

Nevertheless, I am continually with THEE;
THOU hast holden me by my right hand.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v24

THOU shalt guide me with THY counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v25

Whom have I in heaven but THEE?
and there is none upon earth that I desire
beside THEE.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v26

My flesh and my heart faileth:
but GOD is the strength of my heart,
and my portion forever.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v27

For, lo, they that are far from THEE shall perish;
THOU hast destroyed all them that go a whoring
from THEE.

{ heart }   [PS] 73v28

But it is good for me to draw near to GOD;
I have put my trust in the LORD GOD,
that I may declare

 ‘All THY works’.

» Psalms 74

¶ Psalms 74 v1-11

{ heart }   [PS] 74v1

Maschil of Asaph.

O GOD, why hast THOU cast us off forever?
why doth THNE anger smoke
against the sheep of THY pasture?

{ heart }   [PS] 74v2

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v3

Lift up THY feet unto the perpetual desolations,
even all that the enemy hath done wickedly
in the sanctuary.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v4

THINE enemies roar in the midst
of THY congregations;
they set up their ensigns for signs.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v5

A man was famous
according as he had lifted up axes
upon the thick trees.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v6

But now they break down the carved work thereof
at once with axes and hammers.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v7

They have cast fire into THY sanctuary;
they have defiled by casting down
the dwelling place of THY NAME to the ground.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v8

They said in their hearts,

 ‘Let us destroy them together’. 

They have burnt up all the synagogues of GOD
in the land.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v9

We see not our signs, there is no more any prophet,
neither is there among us
any that knoweth how long.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v10

O GOD, how long shall the adversary reproach?
shall the enemy blaspheme THY NAME forever?

{ heart }   [PS] 74v11

Why withdrawest THOU THY hand,
even THY right hand?
pluck it out of THY bosom.

¶ Psalms 74 v12-17

{ heart }   [PS] 74v12

For GOD is my KING of old,
working salvation in the midst of the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v13

THOU didst divide the sea by THY strength;
THOU didst break the heads of the dragons
in the waters.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v14

THOU didst break the heads of leviathan in pieces,
and gavest him to be meat
to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v15

THOU didst cleave the fountain and the flood;
THOU driedst up mighty rivers.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v16

The day is THINE, the night also is THINE;
THOU hast prepared the light and the sun.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v17

THOU hast set all the borders of the earth;
THOU hast made summer and winter.

¶ Psalms 74 v18-23

{ heart }   [PS] 74v18

Remember this,
that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD,
and that the foolish people
have blasphemed THY NAME.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v19

O deliver not the soul of THY turtledove
unto the multitude of the wicked;
forget not the congregation of THY poor forever.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v20

Have respect unto the covenant;
for the dark places of the earth are full
of the habitations of cruelty.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v21

O let not the oppressed return ashamed;
let the poor and needy praise THY NAME.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v22

Arise, O GOD, plead THINE own cause;
remember how the foolish man
reproacheth THEE daily.

{ heart }   [PS] 74v23

Forget not the voice of THINE enemies;
the tumult of those that rise up against THEE
increaseth continually.

» Psalms 75

¶ Psalms 75 v1-3

{ heart }   [PS] 75v1

To the chief musician Al-taschith,
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.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v2

When I shall receive the congregation
I will judge uprightly.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v3

The earth and all the inhabitants thereof
are dissolved;
I bear up the pillars of it.
Selah.

¶ Psalms 75 v4-6

{ heart }   [PS] 75v4

I said unto the fools,

 ‘Deal not foolishly’: 

And to the wicked,

 ‘Lift not up the horn’.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v5

Lift not up your horn on high;
speak not with a stiff neck.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v6

For promotion cometh neither from the east,
nor from the west, nor from the south.

¶ Psalms 75 v5-7

{ heart }   [PS] 75v7

But GOD is the JUDGE;
HE putteth down one, and setteth up another.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v8

For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup,
and the wine is red: it is full of mixture,
and HE poureth out of the same;
but the dregs thereof all the wicked of the earth
shall wring them out, and drink them.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v9

But I will declare forever;
I will sing praises to the GOD of Jacob.

{ heart }   [PS] 75v10

All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off;
but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

» Psalms 76

¶ Psalms 76 v1-6

{ heart }   [PS] 76v1

To the chief musician on Neginoth,
a psalm or song of Asaph.

In Judah is GOD known;
HIS NAME is great in Israel.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v2

In Salem also is HIS tabernacle,
and HIS dwelling place in Zion.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v3

There broke HE the arrows of the bow,
the shield, and the sword, and the battle.
Selah.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v4

THOU art more glorious and excellent
than the mountains of prey.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v5

The stouthearted are spoiled;
they have slept their sleep,
and none of the men of might have found their hands.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v6

At THY rebuke, O GOD of Jacob,
both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

¶ Psalms 76 v7-12

{ heart }   [PS] 76v7

THOU, even THOU, art to be feared;
and who may stand in THY sight
when once THOU art angry?

{ heart }   [PS] 76v8

THOU didst cause judgment to be heard
from heaven;
the earth feared, and was still,

{ heart }   [PS] 76v9

When GOD arose to judgment,
to save all the meek of the earth.
Selah.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v10

Surely the wrath of man shall praise THEE;
the remainder of wrath shalt THOU restrain.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v11

Vow, and pay unto the LORD your GOD;
let all that be round about HIM
bring presents unto HIM THAT ought to be feared.

{ heart }   [PS] 76v12

HE shall cut off the spirit of princes;
HE is fearsome to the kings of the earth.

» Psalms 77

¶ Psalms 77 v1-6

{ heart }   [PS] 77v1

I cried unto GOD with my voice,
even unto GOD with my voice;
and HE gave ear unto me.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v2

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v3

I remembered GOD, and was troubled;
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.
Selah.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v4

THOU holdest mine eyes waking;
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v5

I have considered the days of old,
the years of ancient times.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v6

I call to remembrance my song in the night;
I commune with mine own heart,
and my spirit made diligent search.

¶ Psalms 77 v7-9

{ heart }   [PS] 77v7

Will the LORD cast off forever?
and will HE be favorable no more?

{ heart }   [PS] 77v8

Is HIS mercy clean gone forever?
doth HIS promise fail for evermore?

{ heart }   [PS] 77v9

Hath GOD forgotten to be gracious?
hath HE in anger shut up HIS tender mercies?
Selah.

¶ Psalms 77 v10-15

{ heart }   [PS] 77v10

And I said,

 ‘This is my infirmity’: 

But I will remember the years
of the right hand of the MOST HIGH.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v11

I will remember the works of the LORD;
surely I will remember THY wonders of old.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v12

I will meditate also of all THY work,
and talk of THY doings.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v13

THY way, O GOD, is in the sanctuary;
who is so great a GOD as our GOD?

{ heart }   [PS] 77v14

THOU art the GOD THAT doest wonders;
THOU hast declared

 ‘THY strength’ 

Among the people.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v15

THOU hast with THINE arm redeemed
THY people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
Selah.

¶ Psalms 77 v16-19

{ heart }   [PS] 77v16

The waters saw THEE, O GOD,
the waters saw THEE: they were afraid;
the depths also were troubled.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v17

The clouds poured out water;
the skies sent out a sound;
THINE arrows also went abroad.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v18

The voice of THY thunder was in the heaven;
the lightnings lightened the world;
the earth trembled and shook.

{ heart }   [PS] 77v19

THY way is in the sea,
and THY path in the great waters,
and THY footsteps are not known.

¶ Psalms 77 v20

{ heart }   [PS] 77v20

THOU leddest THY people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

» Psalms 78

¶ Psalms 78 v1-11

{ heart }   [PS] 78v1

Give ear, O my people, to my law;
incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v2

I will open my mouth in a parable;
I will utter dark sayings of old,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v3

Which we have heard and known,
and our fathers have told us.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v4

We will not hide them from their children,
showing to the generation to come
the praises of the LORD, and HIS strength,
and HIS wonderful works that HE hath done.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v5

For HE established a testimony in Jacob,
and appointed a law in Israel,
which HE commanded our fathers,
that they should make them known to their children:

{ heart }   [PS] 78v6

That the generation to come might know them,
even the children which should be born;
who should arise and declare them to their children;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v7

That they might set their hope in GOD,
and not forget the works of GOD,
but keep HIS commandments:

{ heart }   [PS] 78v8

And might not be as their fathers,
a stuborn and rebellious generation;
a generation that set not their heart aright,
and whose spirit was not steadfast with GOD.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v9

The children of Ephraim,
being armed, and carrying bows,
turned back in the day of battle.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v10

They kept not the covenant of GOD,
and refused to walk in HIS law;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v11

And forgot HIS works, and HIS wonders
that HE had showed them.

¶ Psalms 78 v12-16

{ heart }   [PS] 78v12

Marvelous things did HE
in the sight of their fathers,
in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v13

HE divided the sea,
and caused them to pass through;
and HE made the waters to stand as an heap.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v14

In the daytime also
HE led them with a CLOUD,
and all the night with a light of FIRE.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v15

HE clave the rocks in the wilderness,
and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v16

HE brought streams also out of the rock,
and caused waters to run down like rivers.

¶ Psalms 78 v17-31

{ heart }   [PS] 78v17

And they sinned yet more against HIM
by provoking the MOST HIGH in the wilderness.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v18

And they tempted GOD in their heart
by asking meat for their lust.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v19

Yea, they spake against GOD;
they said,

 ‘Can GOD furnish a table in the wilderness?’ 

{ heart }   [PS] 78v20

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?

{ heart }   [PS] 78v21

Therefore, the LORD heard this, and was angry;
so a fire was kindled against Jacob,
and anger also came up against Israel,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v22

Because they believed not

 ‘In GOD’, 

And trusted not in HIS salvation,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v23

Though HE had commanded the clouds from above,
and opened the doors of heaven,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v24

And had rained down manna upon them to eat,
and had given them of the corn of heaven.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v25

Man did eat Angels food;
HE sent them meat to the full.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v26

HE caused an east wind to blow in the heaven;
and by HIS power HE brought in the Negev wind.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v27

HE rained flesh also upon them as dust,
and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v28

And HE let it fall in the midst of their camp,
round about their habitations.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v29

So they did eat, and were well filled;
for HE gave them their own desire.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v30

They were not estranged from their lust:
but while their meat was yet in their mouths,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v31

The wrath of GOD came upon them,
and slew the fattest of them,
and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

¶ Psalms 78 v32-39

{ heart }   [PS] 78v32

For all this they sinned still,
and believed not for HIS wondrous works.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v33

Therefore their days did HE consume in vanity,
and their years in trouble.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v34

When HE slew them, then they sought HIM;
and they returned and enquired early after GOD.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v35

And they remembered that GOD was their ROCK,
and the high GOD their REDEEMER.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v36

Nevertheless, they did flatter HIM with their mouth,
and they lied unto HIM with their tongues.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v37

For their heart was not right with HIM,
neither were they steadfast in HIS covenant.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v38

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v39

For HE remembered that they were but flesh;
a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

¶ Psalms 78 v40-55

{ heart }   [PS] 78v40

How often did they provoke HIM in the wilderness,
and grieve HIM in the desert?

{ heart }   [PS] 78v41

Yea, they turned back and tempted GOD,
and limited the HOLY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v42

They remembered not HIS hand,
nor the day when HE delivered them
from the enemy;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v43

How HE had wrought HIS signs in Egypt,
and HIS wonders in the field of Zoan,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v44

And had turned their rivers into blood;
and their floods, that they could not drink.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v45

HE sent divers sorts of flies among them,
which devoured them;
and frogs, which destroyed them.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v46

HE gave also their increase unto the caterpillar,
and their labor unto the locust.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v47

HE destroyed their vines with hail,
and their sycamore trees with frost.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v48

HE gave up their cattle also to the hail,
and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v49

HE cast upon them the fierceness of HIS anger,
wrath, and indignation, and trouble,
by sending Evil Angels among them.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v50

HE made a way to HIS anger;
HE spared not their soul from death,
but gave their life over to the pestilence;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v51

And smote all the first-born in Egypt;
the chief of their strength
in the tabernacles of Ham;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v52

But made HIS OWN people to go forth like sheep,
and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v53

And HE led them on safely, so that they feared not;
but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v54

And HE brought them to the border
of HIS sanctuary,
even to this mountain,
which HIS right hand had purchased.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v55

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.

¶ Psalms 78 v55-64

{ heart }   [PS] 78v56

Yet they tempted and provoked
the most high GOD,
and kept not HIS testimonies,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v57

But turned back, and dealt unaithfully
like their fathers;
they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v58

For they provoked HIM to anger
with their high places,
and moved HIM to jealousy with their graven images.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v59

When GOD heard this, HE was angry,
and greatly abhorred Israel;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v60

So that HE forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,
the tent which HE placed among men,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v61

And delivered HIS strength into captivity,
and HIS glory into the enemy's hand.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v62

HE gave HIS people over also unto the sword;
and was angry with HIS inheritance.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v63

The fire consumed their young men;
and their maidens were not given to marriage.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v64

Their priests fell by the sword,
and their widows made no lamentation.

¶ Psalms 78 v65-72

{ heart }   [PS] 78v65

Then the LORD awaked as one out of sleep,
and like a mighty man that shouteth
by reason of wine.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v66

And HE smote HIS enemies in the hinder parts;
HE put them to a perpetual reproach.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v67

Moreover, HE refused the tabernacle of Joseph,
and chose not the tribe of Ephraim,

{ heart }   [PS] 78v68

But chose the tribe of Judah,
the Mount Zion which HE loved.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v69

And HE built HIS sanctuary like high palaces,
like the earth which HE hath established forever.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v70

HE chose David also HIS servant,
and took him from the sheepfolds;

{ heart }   [PS] 78v71

From following the ewes great with young,
HE brought him to feed Jacob, HIS people,
and Israel, HIS inheritance.

{ heart }   [PS] 78v72

So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart;
and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v1

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v2

The dead bodies of THY servants
have they given to be meat
unto the fowls of the heavens,
the flesh of THY saints unto the beasts of the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v3

Their blood have they shed
like water round about Jerusalem;
and there was none to bury them.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v4

We are become a reproach to our neighbors,
a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.

¶ Psalms 79 v5-7

{ heart }   [PS] 79v5

How long, LORD?
wilt THOU be angry forever?
shall THY jealousy burn like fire?

{ heart }   [PS] 79v6

Pour out THY wrath upon the heathen
that have not known THEE,
and upon the kingdoms that have not called

 ‘Upon THY NAME’.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v7

For they have devoured Jacob,
and laid waste his dwelling place.

¶ Psalms 79 v8-13

{ heart }   [PS] 79v8

O remember not against us former iniquities;
let THY tender mercies speedily prevent us;
for we are brought very low.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v9

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v10

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v11

Let the sighing of the prisoner come before THEE;
according to the greatness of THY power
preserve THOU those that are appointed to die;

{ heart }   [PS] 79v12

And render unto our neighbors
sevenfold into their bosom their reproach,
wherewith they have reproached THEE, O LORD.

{ heart }   [PS] 79v13

So we, THY people and sheep of THY pasture,
will give THEE thanks forever;
we will show forth THY praise to all generations.

O LORD GOD of hosts,

against the prayer of THY people?

{ heart }   [PS] 80v5

THOU feedest them with the bread of tears,
and givest them tears to drink in great measure.

THOU makest us a strife unto our neighbors;

Turn us again, O GOD of hosts,

¶ Psalms 80 v8-19

{ heart }   [PS] 80v8

THOU hast brought a vine out of Egypt:
THOU hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.

{ heart }   [PS] 80v9

THOU preparedst room before it,
and didst cause it to take deep root,
and it filled the land.

{ heart }   [PS] 80v10

The hills were covered with the shadow of it,
and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.

{ heart }   [PS] 80v11

She sent out her boughs unto the sea,
and her branches unto the river.

{ heart }   [PS] 80v12

Why hast THOU then broken down her hedges,
so that all they which pass by the way
do pluck her?

{ heart }   [PS] 80v13

The boar out of the wood doth waste it,
and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

{ heart }   [PS] 80v14

Return, we beseech THEE, O GOD of hosts;
look down from heaven,
and behold, and visit this vine,

Let THY hand be upon the man of THY right hand,
upon the son of man
whom THOU madest strong for THYSELF.

So will not we go back from THEE;
quicken us, and we will call

I removed his shoulder from the burden;

I AM the LORD thy GOD,
WHICH brought thee out of the land of Egypt;

{ heart }   [PS] 81v11

But MY people would not hearken to MY voice;
and Israel would have none of ME.

So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust;
and they walked in their own counsels.

O that MY people had hearkened unto ME,
and Israel had walked in MY ways!

 ‘THOU art my FATHER, my GOD,
and the ROCK of my salvation’.

higher than the kings of the earth.

and walk not in MY judgments;

If they break MY statutes,
and keep not MY commandments;

{ heart }   [PS] 89v32

Then will I visit their transgression with the rod,
and their iniquity with stripes.

Nevertheless, MY loving-kindness
will I not utterly take from him,
nor suffer MY faithfulness to fail.

nor alter the thing that is gone out of MY lips.

THOU hast also turned the edge of his sword,
and hast not made him to stand in the battle.

Remember how short my time is:
wherefore hast THOU made all men in vain?

{ heart }   [PS] 89v48

What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death?
shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave?
Selah.

LORD, where are THY former loving-kindnesses,
which THOU didst swear unto David in THY truth?

how I do bear in my bosom

{ heart }   [PS] 102v12

But THOU, O LORD, shalt endure forever;
and THY remembrance unto all generations.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v13

THOU shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion;
for the time to favor her, yea, the set time, is come.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v14

For THY servants take pleasure in her stones,
and favor the dust thereof.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v15

So the heathen shall fear the NAME of the LORD,
and all the kings of the earth THY glory.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v16

When the LORD shall build up Zion,
HE shall appear in HIS glory.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v17

HE will regard the prayer of the destitute,
and not despise their prayer.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v18

This shall be written for the generation to come;
and the people which shall be created
shall praise the LORD.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v19

For HE hath looked down
from the height of HIS sanctuary;
from heaven did the LORD behold the earth,

{ heart }   [PS] 102v20

To hear the groaning of the prisoner;
to loose those that are appointed to death;

{ heart }   [PS] 102v21

To declare

 ‘The NAME of the LORD’ 

In Zion,
and HIS praise in Jerusalem,

{ heart }   [PS] 102v22

When the people are gathered together,
and the kingdoms,
to serve the LORD.

¶ Psalms 102 v23-28

{ heart }   [PS] 102v23

HE weakened my strength in the way;
HE shortened my days.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v24

I said,

 ‘O my GOD, take me not away
in the midst of my days’; 

THY years are throughout all generations.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v25

Of old hast THOU laid the foundation of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of THY hands.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v26

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v27

But THOU art the same,
and THY years shall have no end.

{ heart }   [PS] 102v28

The children of THY servants shall continue,
and their seed shall be established before THEE.

¶ Psalms 103 v1-13

{ heart }   [PS] 103v1

A psalm of David.

Bless the LORD, O my soul;
and all that is within me, bless HIS holy NAME.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v2

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all HIS benefits:

{ heart }   [PS] 103v3

WHO forgiveth all thine iniquities,
WHO healeth all thy diseases,

{ heart }   [PS] 103v4

WHO redeemeth thy life from destruction,
WHO crowneth thee with loving-kindness
and tender mercies,

{ heart }   [PS] 103v5

WHO satisfieth thy mouth with good things;
so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v6

The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment
for all that are oppressed.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v7

HE made known HIS ways unto Moses,
HIS acts unto the children of Israel.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v8

The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v9

HE will not always chide;
neither will HE keep HIS anger forever.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v10

HE hath not dealt with us after our sins;
nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v11

For as the heavens is high above the earth,
so great is HIS mercy toward them that fear HIM.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v12

As far as the east is from the west,
so far hath HE removed our transgressions from us.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v13

As a father pitieth his children,
so the LORD pitieth them that fear HIM.

¶ Psalms 103 v14-18

{ heart }   [PS] 103v14

For HE knoweth

 ‘Our frame’; 

HE remembereth that we are dust.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v15

As for man, his days are as grass;
as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v16

For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
and the place thereof shall know it no more.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v17

But the mercy of the LORD
is from everlasting to everlasting
upon them that fear HIM:
and HIS righteousness unto children's children;

{ heart }   [PS] 103v18

To such as keep HIS covenant,
and to those that remember HIS commandments
to do them.

¶ Psalms 103 v19-22

{ heart }   [PS] 103v19

The LORD hath prepared HIS throne
in the heavens;
and HIS kingdom ruleth over all.

{ heart }   [PS] 103v20

Bless the LORD,
Ye HIS Angels, That excel in strength,
That do HIS commandments,
hearkening unto the voice of HIS word.

Bless ye the LORD, all ye HIS hosts,
ye ministers of HIS, that do HIS pleasure.

Bless the LORD, all HIS works
in all places of HIS dominion;
bless the LORD, O my soul.

¶ Psalms 104 v1-30

{ heart }   [PS] 104v1

Bless the LORD, O my soul.
O LORD my GOD, THOU art very great;
THOU art clothed with honor and majesty.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v2

WHO coverest THYSELF with light
as with a garment;
WHO stretchest out the heavens
like a curtain:

{ heart }   [PS] 104v3

WHO layeth the beams of his chambers
in the waters;
WHO maketh the clouds HIS chariot;
WHO walketh upon the wings of the wind;

{ heart }   [PS] 104v4

WHO maketh HIS Angels spirits,
HIS ministers a flaming fire;

{ heart }   [PS] 104v5

WHO laid the foundations of the earth,
that it should not be removed forever.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v6

THOU coveredst it with the deep as with a garment;
the waters stood above the mountains.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v7

At THY rebuke they fled;
at the voice of THY thunder they hasted away.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v8

They go up by the mountains;
they go down by the valleys
unto the place which THOU hast founded for them.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v9

THOU hast set a bound
that they may not pass over;
that they turn not again to cover the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v10

HE sendeth the springs into the valleys,
which run among the hills.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v11

They give drink to every beast of the field;
the wild asses quench their thirst.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v12

By them shall the fowls of the heavens
have their habitation,
that sing among the branches.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v13

HE watereth the hills from HIS chambers;
the earth is satisfied with the fruit of THY works.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v14

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,

{ heart }   [PS] 104v15

And wine that maketh glad the heart of man,
and oil to make his face to shine,
and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v16

The trees of the LORD are full of sap;
the cedars of Lebanon, which HE hath planted,

{ heart }   [PS] 104v17

Where the birds make their nests;
as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v18

The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats;
and the rocks for the conies.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v19

HE appointed the moon for seasons;
the sun knoweth his going down.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v20

THOU makest darkness, and it is night;
wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v21

The young lions roar after their prey,
and seek their meat from GOD.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v22

The sun ariseth; they gather themselves together,
and lay them down in their dens.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v23

Man goeth forth unto his work
and to his labor until the evening.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v24

O LORD, how manifold are THY works!
in wisdom hast THOU made them all;
the earth is full of THY riches.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v25

So is this great and wide sea,
wherein are things creeping innumerable,
both small and great beasts.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v26

There go the ships;
there is that leviathan,
whom THOU hast made to play therein.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v27

These wait all upon THEE;
that THOU mayest give them their meat
in due season.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v28

That which THOU givest them they gather;
THOU openest THINE hand,
they are filled with good.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v29

THOU hidest THY face, they are troubled;
THOU takest away their breath,
they die, and return to their dust.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v30

THOU sendest forth THY SPIRIT,
they are created;
and THOU renewest the face of the earth.

¶ Psalms 104 v31-35

{ heart }   [PS] 104v31

The glory of the LORD shall endure forever;
the LORD shall rejoice in HIS works.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v32

HE looketh on the earth, and it trembleth;
HE toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v33

I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my GOD while I have my being.

{ heart }   [PS] 104v34

My meditation of HIM shall be sweet;
I will be glad in the LORD.

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.

¶ Psalms 105 v1-45

{ heart }   [PS] 105v1

O give thanks unto the LORD;
call

 ‘Upon HIS NAME’; 

Make known HIS deeds among the people.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v2

Sing unto HIM, sing psalms unto HIM;
talk ye

 ‘Of all HIS wondrous works’.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v3

Glory ye in HIS holy NAME;
let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v4

Seek the LORD, and HIS strength;
seek HIS face evermore.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v5

Remember HIS marvelous works
that HE hath done;
HIS wonders, and the judgments of HIS mouth;

{ heart }   [PS] 105v6

O ye seed of Abraham, HIS servant,
ye children of Jacob, HIS chosen.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v7

HE is the LORD our GOD;
HIS judgments are in all the earth.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v8

HE hath remembered HIS covenant forever,
the word which HE commanded
to a thousand generations.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v9

Which covenant HE made with Abraham,
and HIS oath unto Isaac,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v10

And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law,
and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v11

Saying,

Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan,
the lot of your inheritance;

{ heart }   [PS] 105v12

When they were but a few men in number;
yea, very few, and sojourners in it.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v13

When they went from one nation to another,
from one kingdom to another people,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v14

HE suffered no man to do them wrong;
yea, HE reproved kings for their sakes,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v15

Saying,

Touch not MINE anointed,
and do MY prophets no harm.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v16

Moreover, HE called for

A famine upon the land:

HE broke the whole staff of bread.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v17

HE sent a man before them, even Joseph,
who was sold for a servant,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v18

Whose feet they hurt with fetters;
he was laid in iron,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v19

Until the time that his word came;
the word of the LORD tried him.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v20

The king sent and loosed him,
even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v21

He made him lord of his house,
and ruler of all his substance,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v22

To bind his princes at his pleasure;
and teach his senators wisdom.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v23

Israel also came into Egypt;
and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v24

And HE increased HIS people greatly;
and made them stronger than their enemies.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v25

HE turned their heart to hate HIS people,
to deal subtly with HIS servants.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v26

HE sent Moses, HIS servant;
and Aaron, whom HE had chosen.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v27

They showed HIS signs among them,
and wonders in the land of Ham.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v28

HE sent darkness, and made it dark;
and they rebelled not against HIS word.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v29

HE turned their waters into blood,
and slew their fish.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v30

Their land brought forth frogs in abundance,
in the chambers of their kings.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v31

HE spake,
and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice
in all their borders.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v32

HE gave them hail for rain,
and flaming fire in their land.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v33

HE smote their vines also and their fig trees;
and broke the trees of their borders.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v34

HE spake,
and the locusts came, and caterpillars,
and that without number,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v35

And did eat up all the herbs in their land,
and devoured the fruit of their ground.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v36

HE smote also all the first-born in their land,
the chief of all their strength.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v37

HE brought them forth also with silver and gold;
and there was not one feeble person
among their tribes.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v38

Egypt was glad when they departed;
for the fear of them fell upon them.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v39

HE spread a CLOUD for a covering;
and FIRE to give light in the night.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v40

The people asked, and HE brought quails,
and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v41

HE opened the rock, and the waters gushed out;
they ran in the dry places like a river.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v42

For HE remembered HIS holy promise,
and Abraham, HIS servant.

{ heart }   [PS] 105v43

And HE brought forth HIS people with joy,
and HIS chosen with gladness,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v44

And gave them the lands of the heathen;
and they inherited the labor of the peoples,

{ heart }   [PS] 105v45

That they might observe HIS statutes,
and keep HIS laws,
Praise ye the LORD.

¶ Psalms 106 v1-5

{ heart }   [PS] 106v1

Praise ye the LORD.
O give thanks unto the LORD, for HE is good:
for HIS mercy endureth forever.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v2

Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD?
who can show forth all HIS praise?

{ heart }   [PS] 106v3

Blessed are they that keep judgment,
and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v4

Remember me, O LORD,
with the favor that THOU bearest unto THY people;
O visit me with THY salvation;

{ heart }   [PS] 106v5

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.

¶ Psalms 106 v6-46

{ heart }   [PS] 106v6

We have sinned with our fathers,
we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v7

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v8

Nevertheless, HE saved them
for HIS NAME'S sake,
that HE might make

 ‘HIS mighty power’ 

To be known.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v9

HE rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up;
so HE led them through the depths,
as through the wilderness.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v10

And HE saved them from the hand
of him that hated them,
and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v11

And the waters covered their enemies;
there was not one of them left.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v12

Then believed they

 ‘HIS words’; 

They sang HIS praise.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v13

They soon forgot HIS works;
they waited not for HIS counsel,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v14

But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness,
and tempted GOD in the desert.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v15

And HE gave them their request,
but sent leanness into their soul.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v16

They envied Moses also in the camp,
and Aaron, the saint of the LORD.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v17

The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan,
and covered the company of Abiram.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v18

And a fire was kindled in their company;
the flame burnt up the wicked.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v19

They made a calf in Horeb,
and worshipped the molten image.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v20

Thus they changed their glory
into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v21

They forgot GOD, their SAVIOR:
WHICH had done great things in Egypt,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v22

Wondrous works in the land of Ham,
and terrible things by the Red Sea.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v23

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v24

Yea, they despised the pleasant land,
they believed not

 ‘HIS word’,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v25

But murmured in their tents,
and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v26

Therefore, HE lifted up HIS hand against them,
to overthrow them in the wilderness,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v27

To overthrow their seed also among the nations,
and to scatter them in the lands.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v28

They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor,
and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v29

Thus they provoked HIM to anger
with their inventions ,
and the plague broke in upon them.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v30

Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment;
and so the plague was stayed.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v31

And that was counted unto him for righteousness
unto all generations for evermore.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v32

They angered HIM also at the waters of strife,
so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v33

Because they provoked HIS SPIRIT,
so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v34

They did not destroy the nations,
concerning whom the LORD commanded them,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v35

But were mingled among the heathen, and learned

 ‘Their works’.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v36

And they served their idols,
which were a snare unto them.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v37

Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters
unto Devils,

{ heart }   [PS] 106v38

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.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v39

Thus were they defiled with their own works,
and went a whoring with their own inventions .

{ heart }   [PS] 106v40

Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled
against HIS people,
insomuch that HE abhorred HIS OWN inheritance.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v41

And HE gave them into the hand of the heathen,
and they that hated them ruled over them.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v42

Their enemies also oppressed them,
and they were brought into subjection
under their hand.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v43

Many times did HE deliver them;
but they provoked HIM with their counsel,
and were brought low for their iniquity.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v44

Nevertheless, HE regarded their affliction,
when HE heard

 ‘Their cry’.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v45

And HE remembered for them HIS covenant,
and repented
according to the multitude of HIS mercies.

{ heart }   [PS] 106v46

HE made them also to be pitied
of all those that carried them captives.

¶ Psalms 106 v47

{ heart }   [PS] 106v47

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.

¶ Psalms 106 v48

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,
whom HE hath redeemed
from the hand of the enemy,

And gathered them out of the lands,
from the east, and from the west,
from the north, and from the south.

¶ Psalms 107 v4-9

{ heart }   [PS] 107v4

They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way;
they found no city to dwell in.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v5

Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v6

Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble,
and HE delivered them out of their distresses.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v7

And HE led them forth by the right way,
that they might go to a city of habitation.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v8

Oh that men would praise the LORD
for HIS goodness:
and for HIS wonderful works to the children of men.

For HE satisfieth the longing soul,
and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

¶ Psalms 107 v10-16

{ heart }   [PS] 107v10

Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
being bound in affliction and iron,

{ heart }   [PS] 107v11

Because they rebelled against the words of GOD,
and contemned the counsel of the MOST HIGH:

{ heart }   [PS] 107v12

Therefore HE brought down their heart with labor;
they fell down, and there was none to help.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v13

Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble,
and HE saved them out of their distresses.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v14

HE brought them out of darkness
and the shadow of death,
and broke their bands in sunder.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v15

Oh that men would praise the LORD
for HIS goodness:
and for HIS wonderful works to the children of men.

For HE hath broken the gates of bronze,
and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

¶ Psalms 107 v17-22

{ heart }   [PS] 107v17

Fools, because of their transgression
and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v18

Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat;
and they draw near unto the gates of death.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v19

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble,
and HE saveth them out of their distresses.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v20

HE sent HIS word, and healed them,
and delivered them from their destructions.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v21

Oh that men would praise the LORD
for HIS goodness:
and for HIS wonderful works to the children of men.

And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving,
and declare

 ‘HIS works’ 

With rejoicing.

They that go down to the sea in ships,
that do business in great waters,

These see the works of the LORD,
and HIS wonders in the deep.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v25

For HE commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind,
which lifteth up the waves thereof.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v26

They mount up to the heavens,
they go down again to the depths;
their soul is melted because of trouble.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v27

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
and are at their wits' end.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v28

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble,
and HE bringeth them out of their distresses.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v29

HE maketh the storm a calm,
so that the waves thereof are still.

{ heart }   [PS] 107v30

Then are they glad because they be quiet;
so HE bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Hold not THY peace, O GOD of my praise;

and the mouth of the deceitful
are opened against me;
