1 (119-1) In my trouble I cried to the Lord: and he heard me. 2 (119-2) O Lord, deliver my soul from wicked lips, and a deceitful tongue. 3 (119-3) What shall be given to thee, or what shall be added to thee, to a deceitful tongue? 4 (119-4) The sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals that lay waste. 5 (119-5) Woe is me, that my sojourning is prolonged! I have dwelt with the inhabitants of Cedar: 6 (119-6) My soul hath been long a sojourner. 7 (119-7) With them that hated peace I was peaceable: when I spoke to them they fought against me without cause.
1 (120-1) I have lifted up my eyes to the mountains, from whence help shall come to me. 2 (120-2) My help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 3 (120-3) May he not suffer thy foot to be moved: neither let him slumber that keepeth thee. 4 (120-4) Behold he shall neither slumber nor sleep, that keepeth Israel. 5 (120-5) The Lord is thy keeper, the Lord is thy protection upon thy right hand. 6 (120-6) The sun shall not burn thee by day: nor the moon by night. 7 (120-7) The Lord keepeth thee from all evil: may the Lord keep thy soul. 8 (120-8) May the Lord keep thy coming in and thy going out; from henceforth now and for ever.
1 (121-1) <A gradual canticle.> 2 (121-1) (121-2) Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem. 3 (121-3) Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together. 4 (121-4) For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord: the testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord. 5 (121-5) Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David. 6 (121-6) Pray ye for the things that are for the peace of Jerusalem: and abundance for them that love thee. 7 (121-7) Let peace be in thy strength: and abundance in thy towers. 8 (121-8) For the sake of my brethren, and of my neighbours, I spoke peace of thee. 9 (121-9) Because of the house of the Lord our God, I have sought good things for thee.
1 (122-1) To thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven. 2 (122-2) Behold as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters, As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until he have mercy on us. 3 (122-3) Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us: for we are greatly filled with contempt. 4 (122-4) For our soul is greatly filled: we are a reproach to the rich, and contempt to the proud.
1 (123-1) <A gradual canticle.> If it had not been that the Lord was with us, let Israel now say: 2 (123-2) If it had not been that the Lord was with us, When men rose up against us, 3 (123-3) Perhaps they had swallowed us up alive. When their fury was enkindled against us, 4 (123-4) Perhaps the waters had swallowed us up. 5 (123-5) Our soul hath passed through a torrent: perhaps our soul had passed through a water insupportable. 6 (123-6) Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us to be a prey to their teeth. 7 (123-7) Our soul hath been delivered as a sparrow out of the snare of the fowlers. The snare is broken, and we are delivered. 8 (123-8) Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
1 (124-1) <A gradual canticle.> They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Sion: he shall not be moved for ever that dwelleth 2 (124-2) In Jerusalem. Mountains are round about it: so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth now and for ever. 3 (124-3) For the Lord will not leave the rod of sinners upon the lot of the just: that the just may not stretch forth their hands to iniquity. 4 (124-4) Do good, O Lord, to those that are good, and to the upright of heart. 5 (124-5) But such as turn aside into bonds, the Lord shall lead out with the workers of iniquity: peace upon Israel.
1 (125-1) <A gradual canticle.> When the Lord brought back the captivity of Sion, we became like men comforted. 2 (125-2) Then was our mouth filled with gladness; and our tongue with joy. Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath done great things for them. 3 (125-3) The Lord hath done great things for us: we are become joyful. 4 (125-4) Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a stream in the south. 5 (125-5) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 (125-6) Going they went and wept, casting their seeds. (125-7) But coming they shall come with joyfulness, carrying their sheaves.
1 (126-1) <A gradual canticle of Solomon.> Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it. 2 (126-2) It is vain for you to rise before light, rise ye after you have sitten, you that eat the bread of sorrow. When he shall give sleep to his beloved, 3 (126-3) Behold the inheritance of the Lord are children: the reward, the fruit of the womb. 4 (126-4) As arrows in the hand of the mighty, so the children of them that have been shaken. 5 (126-5) Blessed is the man that hath filled the desire with them; he shall not be confounded when he shall speak to his enemies in the gate.
1 (127-1) <A gradual canticle.> Blessed are all they that fear the Lord: that walk in his ways. 2 (127-2) For thou shalt eat the labours of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee. 3 (127-3) Thy wife as a fruitful vine, on the sides of thy house. Thy children as olive plants, round about thy table. 4 (127-4) Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord. 5 (127-5) May the Lord bless thee out of Sion: and mayst thou see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. 6 (127-6) And mayst thou see thy children’s children, peace upon Israel.
1 (128-1) <A gradual canticle.> Often have they fought against me from my youth, let Israel now say. 2 (128-2) Often have they fought against me from my youth: but they could not prevail over me. 3 (128-3) The wicked have wrought upon my back: they have lengthened their iniquity. 4 (128-4) The Lord who is just will cut the necks of sinners: 5 (128-5) Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Sion. 6 (128-6) Let them be as grass upon the tops of houses: which withereth before it be plucked up: 7 (128-7) Who with the mower filleth not his hand: nor he that gathereth sheaves his bosom. 8 (128-8) And they that passed by have not said: The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.
1 (129-1) <A gradual canticle.> Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord: 2 (129-2) Lord, hear my voice. Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication. 3 (129-3) If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it. 4 (129-4) For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word: 5 (129-5) my soul hath hoped in the Lord. 6 (129-6) From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord. 7 (129-7) Because with the Lord there is mercy: and with him plentiful redemption. 8 (129-8) And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
1 (130-1) <A gradual canticle of David.> Lord, my heart is not exalted: nor are my eyes lofty. Neither have I walked in great matters, nor in wonderful things above me. 2 (130-2) If I was not humbly minded, but exalted my soul: As a child that is weaned is towards his mother, so reward in my soul. 3 (130-3) Let Israel hope in the Lord, from henceforth now and for ever.
1 (131-1) <A gradual canticle.> O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness. 2 (131-2) How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob: 3 (131-3) If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie: 4 (131-4) If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids, 5 (131-5) Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. 6 (131-6) Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood. 7 (131-7) We will go into his tabernacle: we will adore in the place where his feet stood. 8 (131-8) Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified. 9 (131-9) Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice. 10 (131-10) For thy servant David’s sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed. 11 (131-11) The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne. 12 (131-12) If thy children will keep my covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne. 13 (131-13) For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling. 14 (131-14) This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it. 15 (131-15) Blessing I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16 (131-16) I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy. 17 (131-17) There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed. 18 (131-18) His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him shall my sanctification flourish.
