1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence: 2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper. 4 Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth. 5 Therefore the wicked shall not rise again in judgment: nor sinners in the council of the just. 6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way of the wicked shall perish.
1 Why have the Gentiles raged, and the people devised vain things? 2 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met together, against the Lord, and against his Christ. 3 Let us break their bonds asunder: and let us cast away their yoke from us. 4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: and the Lord shall deride them. 5 Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble them in his rage. 6 But I am appointed king by him over Sion, his holy mountain, preaching his commandment. 7 The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. 10 And now, O ye kings, understand: receive instruction, you that judge the earth. 11 Serve ye the Lord with fear: and rejoice unto him with trembling. 12 Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry, and you perish from the just way. (2-13) When his wrath shall be kindled in a short time, blessed are all they that trust in him.
1 <The psalm of David when he fled from the face of his son Absalom.> (3:1) 2 Many say to my soul: There is no salvation for him in his God. 3 But thou, O Lord, art my protector, my glory, and the lifter up of my head. 4 I have cried to the Lord with my voice: and he hath heard me from his holy hill. 5 I have slept and have taken my rest: and I have risen up, because the Lord hath protected me. 6 I will not fear thousands of the people surrounding me: arise, O Lord; save me, O my God. 7 For thou hast struck all them who are my adversaries without cause: thou hast broken the teeth of sinners. 8 Salvation is of the Lord: and thy blessing is upon thy people.
1 <Unto the end, in verses. A psalm for David.> (4-2) When I called upon him, the God of my justice heard me: when I was in distress, thou hast enlarged me. Have mercy on me: and hear my prayer. 2 (4-3) O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart? why do you love vanity, and seek after lying? 3 (4-4) Know ye also that the Lord hath made his holy one wonderful: the Lord will hear me when I shall cry unto him. 4 (4-5) Be ye angry, and sin not: the things you say in your hearts, be sorry for them upon your beds. 5 (4-6) Offer up the sacrifice of justice, and trust in the Lord: many say, Who sheweth us good things? 6 (4-7) The light of thy countenance, O Lord, is signed upon us: thou hast given gladness in my heart. 7 (4-8) By the fruit of their corn, their wine, and oil, they rest: 8 (4-9) In peace in the self same I will sleep, and I will rest: (4-10) For thou, O Lord, singularly hast settled me in hope.
1 <Unto the end, for her that obtaineth the inheritance. A psalm for David.> (5-2) Give ear, O Lord, to my words, understand my cry. 2 (5-3) Hearken to the voice of my prayer, O my King and my God. 3 (5-4) For to thee will I pray: O Lord, in the morning thou shalt hear my voice. 4 (5-5) In the morning I will stand before thee, and I will see: because thou art not a God that willest iniquity. 5 (5-6) Neither shall the wicked dwell near thee: nor shall the unjust abide before thy eyes. 6 (5-7) Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity: thou wilt destroy all that speak a lie. The bloody and the deceitful man the Lord will abhor. 7 (5-8) But as for me in the multitude of thy mercy, I will come into thy house; I will worship towards thy holy temple, in thy fear. 8 (5-9) Conduct me, O Lord, in thy justice: because of my enemies, direct my way in thy sight. 9 (5-10) For there is no truth in their mouth: their heart is vain. 10 (5-11) Their throat is an open sepulchre: they dealt deceitfully with their tongues: judge them, O God. Let them fall from their devices: according to the multitude of their wickednesses cast them out: for they have provoked thee, O Lord. 11 (5-12) But let all them be glad that hope in thee: they shall rejoice for ever, and thou shalt dwell in them. And all they that love thy name shall glory in thee. 12 (5-13) For thou wilt bless the just. O Lord, thou hast crowned us, as with a shield of thy good will.
1 <Unto the end, in verses, a psalm for David, for the octave.> (6-2) O Lord, rebuke me not in thy indignation, nor chastise me in thy wrath. 2 (6-3) Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak: heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled. 3 (6-4) And my soul is troubled exceedingly: but thou, O Lord, how long? 4 (6-5) Turn to me, O Lord, and deliver my soul: O save me for thy mercy’s sake. 5 (6-6) For there is no one in death, that is mindful of thee: and who shall confess to thee in hell? 6 (6-7) I have laboured in my groanings, every night I will wash my bed: I will water my couch with my tears. 7 (6-8) My eye is troubled through indignation: I have grown old amongst all my enemies. 8 (6-9) Depart from em, all ye workers of iniquity: for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping. 9 (6-10) The Lord hath heard my supplication: the Lord hath received my prayer. 10 (6-11) Let all my enemies be ashamed, and be very much troubled: let them be turned back, and be ashamed very speedily.
1 <The psalm of David, which he sung to the Lord, for the words of Chusi, the son of Jemini.> (7-2) O Lord, my God, in thee have I put my trust; same me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me. 2 (7-3) Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion, while there is no one to redeem me, nor to save. 3 (7-4) O Lord, my God, if I have done this thing, if there be iniquity in my hands: 4 (7-5) If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, let me deservedly fall empty before my enemies. 5 (7-6) Let the enemy pursue my soul, and take it, and tread down my life, on the earth, and bring down my glory to the dust. 6 (7-7) Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: and be thou exalted in the borders of my enemies. And arise, O Lord, my God, in the precept which thou hast commanded: 7 (7-8) And a congregation of people shall surround thee. And for their sakes return thou on high. 8 (7-9) The Lord judgeth the people. Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice, and according to my innocence in me. 9 (7-10) The wickedness of sinners shall be brought to nought; and thou shalt direct the just: the searcher of hearts and reins is God. Just 10 (7-11) Is my help from the Lord; who saveth the upright of heart. 11 (7-12) God is a just judge, strong and patient: is he angry every day? 12 (7-13) Except you will be converted, he will brandish his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 13 (7-14) And in it he hath prepared to instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn. 14 (7-15) Behold he hath been in labour with injustice: he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth iniquity. 15 (7-16) He hath opened a pit and dug it: and he is fallen into the hole he made. 16 (7-17) His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: and his iniquity shall come down upon his crown. 17 (7-18) I will give glory to the Lord according to his justice: and will sing to the name of the Lord the most high.
1 <Unto the end, for the presses: a psalm for David.> (8-2) O Lord, our Lord, how admirable is thy name in the whole earth! For thy magnificence is elevated above the heavens. 2 (8-3) Out of the mouth of infants and of sucklings thou hast perfected praise, because of thy enemies, that thou mayst destroy the enemy and the avenger. 3 (8-4) For I will behold thy heavens, the works of thy fingers: the moon and the stars which thou hast founded. 4 (8-5) What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 (8-6) Thou hast made him a little less than the angels, thou hast crowned him with glory and honour: 6 (8-7) And hast set him over the works of thy hands. 7 (8-8) Thou hast subjected all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen: moreover, the beasts also of the fields. 8 (8-9) The birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea, that pass through the paths of the sea. 9 (8-10) O Lord, our Lord, how admirable is thy name in the whole earth!
