1(107-1) <A canticle of a psalm for David himself.> (107-2) My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready: I will sing, and will give praise, with my glory.2(107-3) Arise, my glory; arise, psaltery and harp: I will arise in the morning early.3(107-4) I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: and I will sing unto thee among the nations.4(107-5) For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth even unto the clouds.5(107-6) Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory over all the earth:6(107-7) That thy beloved may be delivered. Save with thy right hand and hear me.7(107-8) God hath spoken in his holiness. I will rejoice, and I will divide Sichem and I will mete out the vale of tabernacles.8(107-9) Galaad is mine: and Manasses is mine and Ephraim the protection of my head. Juda is my king:9(107-10) Moab the pot of my hope. Over Edom I will stretch out my shoe: the aliens are become my friends.10(107-11) Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?11(107-12) Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our armies?12(107-13) O grant us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.13(107-14) Through God we shall do mightily: and he will bring our enemies to nothing.
1(108-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> (108-2) O God, be not thou silent in my praise:2(108-2) for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful man is opened against me.3(108-3) They have spoken against me with deceitful tongues; and they have compassed me about with words of hatred; and have fought against me without cause.4(108-4) Instead of making me a return of love, they detracted me: but I gave myself to prayer.5(108-5) And they repaid me evil for good: and hatred for my love.6(108-6) Set thou the sinner over him: and may the devil stand at his right hand.7(108-7) When he is judged, may he go out condemned; and may his prayer be turned to sin.8(108-8) May his days be few: and his bishopric let another take.9(108-9) May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.10(108-10) Let his children be carried about vagabonds, and beg; and let them be cast out of their dwellings.11(108-11) May the usurer search all his substance: and let strangers plunder his labours.12(108-12) May there be none to help him: nor none to pity his fatherless offspring.13(108-13) May his posterity be cut off; in one generation may his name be blotted out.14(108-14) May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered in the sight of the Lord: and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.15(108-15) May they be before the Lord continually, and let the memory of them perish from the earth:16(108-16) because he remembered not to shew mercy,17(108-17) But persecuted the poor man and the beggar; and the broken in heart, to put him to death.18(108-18) And he loved cursing, and it shall come unto him: and he would not have blessing, and it shall be far from him. And he put on cursing, like a garment: and it went in like water into his entrails, and like oil in his bones.19(108-19) May it be unto him like a garment which covereth him; and like a girdle with which he is girded continually.20(108-20) This is the work of them who detract me before the Lord; and who speak evils against my soul.21(108-21) But thou, O Lord, do with me for thy name’s sake: because thy mercy is sweet. Do thou deliver me,22(108-22) For I am poor and needy, and my heart is troubled within me.23(108-23) I am taken away like the shadow when it declineth: and I am shaken off as locusts.24(108-24) My knees are weakened through fasting: and my flesh is changed for oil.25(108-25) And I am become a reproach to them: they saw me and they shaked their heads.26(108-26) Help me, O Lord my God; save me; according to thy mercy.27(108-27) And let them know that this is thy hand: and that thou, O Lord, hast done it.28(108-28) They will curse and thou wilt bless: let them that rise up against me be confounded: but thy servant shall rejoice.29(108-29) Let them that detract me be clothed with shame: and let them be covered with their confusion as with a double cloak.30(108-30) I will give great thanks to the Lord with my mouth: and in the midst of many I will praise him.31(108-31) Because he hath stood at the right hand of the poor, to save my soul from persecutors.
1(109-1) <A psalm for David.> The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand: Until I make thy enemies thy footstool.2(109-2) The Lord will send forth the sceptre of thy power out of Sion: rule thou in the midst of thy enemies.3(109-3) With thee is the principality in the day of thy strength: in the brightness of the saints: from the womb before the day star I begot thee.4(109-4) The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech.5(109-5) The Lord at thy right hand hath broken kings in the day of his wrath.6(109-6) He shall judge among nations, he shall fill ruins: he shall crush the heads in the land of many.7(109-7) He shall drink of the torrent in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
