1 (20-1) <Unto the end. A psalm for David.> (20-2) In thy strength, O Lord, the king shall joy; and in thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly. 2 (20-3) Thou hast given him his heart’s desire: and hast not withholden from him the will of his lips. 3 (20-4) For thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones. 4 (20-5) He asked life of thee: and thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever. 5 (20-6) His glory is great in thy salvation: glory and great beauty shalt thou lay upon him. 6 (20-7) For thou shalt give him to be a blessing for ever and ever: thou shalt make him joyful in gladness with thy countenance. 7 (20-8) For the king hopeth in the Lord: and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. 8 (20-9) Let thy hand be found by all thy enemies: let thy right hand find out all them that hate thee. 9 (20-10) Thou shalt make them as an oven of fire, in the time of thy anger: the Lord shall trouble them in his wrath, and fire shall devour them. 10 (20-11) Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth: and their seed from among the children of men. 11 (20-12) For they have intended evils against thee: they have devised counsels which they have not been able to establish. 12 (20-13) For thou shalt make them turn their back: in thy remnants thou shalt prepare their face. 13 (20-14) Be thou exalted, O Lord, in thy own strength: we will sing and praise thy power.
1 (21-1) <Unto the end, for the morning protection, a psalm for David.> (21-2) O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation are the words of my sins. 2 (21-3) O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me. 3 (21-4) But thou dwellest in the holy place, the praise of Israel. 4 (21-5) In thee have our fathers hoped: they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them. 5 (21-6) They cried to thee, and they were saved: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 6 (21-7) But I am a worm, and no man: the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people. 7 (21-8) All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head. 8 (21-9) He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him. 9 (21-10) For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: my hope from the breasts of my mother. 10 (21-11) I was cast upon thee from the womb. From my mother’s womb thou art my God, 11 (21-12) Depart not from me. For tribulation is very near: for there is none to help me. 12 (21-13) Many calves have surrounded me: fat bulls have besieged me. 13 (21-14) have opened their mouths against me, as a lion ravening and roaring. 14 (21-15) I am poured out like water; and all my bones are scattered. My heart is become like wax melting in the midst of my bowels. 15 (21-16) My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death. 16 (21-17) For many dogs have encompassed me: the council of the malignant hath besieged me. They have dug my hands and feet. 17 (21-18) They have numbered all my bones. And they have looked and stared upon me. 18 (21-19) They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots. 19 (21-20) But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; look towards my defence. 20 (21-21) Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: my only one from the hand of the dog. 21 (21-22) Save me from the lion’s mouth; and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns. 22 (21-23) I will declare thy name to my brethren: in the midst of the church will I praise thee. 23 (21-24) Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him. 24 (21-25) Let all the seed of Israel fear him: because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man. Neither hath he turned away his face form me: and when I cried to him he heard me. 25 (21-26) With thee is my praise in a great church: I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him. 26 (21-27) The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: their hearts shall live for ever and ever. 27 (21-28) All the ends of the earth shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord: And all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall adore in his sight. 28 (21-29) For the kingdom is the Lord’s; and he shall have dominion over the nations. 29 (21-30) All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him. 30 (21-31) And to him my soul shall live: and my seed shall serve him. 31 (21-32) There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.
1 (22-1) <A psalm for David.> The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing. 2 (22-2) He hath set me in a place of pasture. He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment: 3 (22-3) He hath converted my soul. He hath led me on the paths of justice, for his own name’s sake. 4 (22-4) For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me 5 (22-5) Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebreateth me, how goodly is it! 6 (22-6) And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days.
1 (23-1) <On the first day of the week, a psalm for David.> The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof: the world, and all they that dwell therein. 2 (23-2) For he hath founded it upon the seas; and hath prepared it upon the rivers. 3 (23-3) Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord: or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 (23-4) The innocent in hands, and clean of heart, who hath not taken his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully to his neighbour. 5 (23-5) He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour. 6 (23-6) This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek the face of the God of Jacob. 7 (23-7) Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in. 8 (23-8) Who is this King of Glory? the Lord who is strong and mighty: the Lord mighty in battle. 9 (23-9) Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in. 10 (23-10) Who is this King of Glory? the Lord of hosts, he is the King of Glory.
1 (24-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul. 2 (24-2) In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed. 3 (24-3) Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded. 4 (24-4) Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths. 5 (24-5) Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long. 6 (24-6) Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world. 7 (24-7) The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember. According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord. 8 (24-8) The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way. 9 (24-9) He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways. 10 (24-10) All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies. 11 (24-11) For thy name’s sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great. 12 (24-12) Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen. 13 (24-13) His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land. 14 (24-14) The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them. 15 (24-15) My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare. 16 (24-16) Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor. 17 (24-17) The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities. 18 (24-18) See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins. 19 (24-19) Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred. 20 (24-20) Deep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee. 21 (24-21) The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee. 22 (24-22) Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.
