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.
1(28-1) <A psalm for David, at the finishing of the tabernacle.> Bring to the Lord, O ye children of God: bring to the Lord the offspring of rams.2(28-2) Bring to the Lord glory and honour: bring to the Lord glory to his name: adore ye the Lord in his holy court.3(28-3) The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of majesty hath thundered, The Lord is upon many waters.4(28-4) The voice of the Lord is in power; the voice of the Lord in magnificence.5(28-5) The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars: yea, the Lord shall break the cedars of Libanus.6(28-6) And shall reduce them to pieces, as a calf of Libanus, and as the beloved son of unicorns.7(28-7) The voice of the Lord divideth the flame of fire:8(28-8) The voice of the Lord shaketh the desert: and the Lord shall shake the desert of Cades.9(28-9) The voice of the Lord prepareth the stags: and he will discover the thick woods: and in his temple all shall speak his glory.10(28-10) The Lord maketh the flood to dwell: and the Lord shall sit king for ever.11(28-10) The Lord will give strength to his people: the Lord will bless his people with peace.
1(32-1) <A psalm for David.> Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just: praise becometh the upright.2(32-2) Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.3(32-3) Sing to him a new canticle, sing well unto him with a loud noise.4(32-4) For the word of the Lord is right, and all his works are done with faithfulness.5(32-5) He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.6(32-6) By the word of the Lord the heavens were established; and all the power of them by the spirit of his mouth:7(32-7) Gathering together the waters of the sea, as in a vessel; laying up the depths in storehouses.8(32-8) Let all the earth fear the Lord, and let all the inhabitants of the world be in awe of him.9(32-9) For he spoke and they were made: he commanded and they were created.10(32-10) The Lord bringeth to nought the counsels of nations; and he rejecteth the devices of people, and casteth away the counsels of princes.11(32-11) But the counsel of the Lord standeth for ever: the thoughts of his heart to all generations.12(32-12) Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord: the people whom he hath chosen for his inheritance.13(32-13) The Lord hath looked from heaven: he hath beheld all the sons of men.14(32-14) From his habitation which he hath prepared, he hath looked upon all that dwell on the earth.15(32-15) He who hath made the hearts of every one of them: who understandeth all their works.16(32-16) The king is not saved by a great army: nor shall the giant be saved by his own great strength.17(32-17) Vain is the horse for safety: neither shall he be saved by the abundance of his strength.18(32-18) Behold the eyes of the Lord are on them that fear him: and on them that hope in his mercy.19(32-19) To deliver their souls from death; and feed them in famine.20(32-20) Our soul waiteth for the Lord: for he is our helper and protector.21(32-21) For in him our heart shall rejoice: and in his holy name we have trusted.22(32-22) Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as we have hooped in thee.
1(35-1) <Unto the end, for the servant of God, David himself.> (35-2) The unjust hath said within himself, that he would sin: there is no fear of God before his eyes.2(35-3) For in his sight he hath done deceitfully, that his iniquity may be found unto hatred.3(35-4) The words of his mouth are iniquity and guile: he would not understand that he might do well.4(35-5) He hath devised iniquity on his bed, he hath set himself on every way that is not good: but evil he hath not hated.5(35-6) O Lord, thy mercy is in heaven, and thy truth reacheth even to the clouds.6(35-7) Thy justice is as the mountains of God, thy judgments are a great deep. Men and beasts thou wilt preserve, O Lord:7(35-8) O how hast thou multiplied thy mercy, O God! But the children of men shall put their trust under the covert of thy wings.8(35-9) They shall be inebriated with the plenty of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the torrent of thy pleasure.9(35-10) For with thee is the fountain of life; and in thy light we shall see light.10(35-11) Extend thy mercy to them that know thee, and thy justice to them that are right in heart.11(35-12) Let not the foot of pride come to me, and let not the hand of the sinner move me.12(35-13) There the workers of iniquity are fallen, they are cast out, and could not stand.
1(38-1) <Unto the end, for Idithun himself, a canticle of David.> (38-2) I said: I will take heed to my ways: that I sin not with my tongue. I have set a guard to my mouth, when the sinner stood against me.2(38-3) I was dumb, and was humbled, and kept silence from good things: and my sorrow was renewed.3(38-4) My heart grew hot within me: and in my meditation a fire shall flame out.4(38-5) I spoke with my tongue: O Lord, make me know my end. And what is the number of my days: that I may know what is wanting to me.5(38-6) Behold thou hast made my days measurable. and my substance is as nothing before thee. And indeed all things are vanity: every man living.6(38-7) Surely man passeth as an image: yea, and he is disquieted in vain. He storeth up: and he knoweth not for whom he shall gather these things.7(38-8) And now what is my hope? is it not the Lord? and my substance is with thee.8(38-9) Deliver thou me from all my iniquities: thou hast made me a reproach to the fool.9(38-10) I was dumb, and I opened not my mouth, because thou hast done it.10(38-11) Remove thy scourges from me. The strength of thy hand hath made me faint in rebukes:11(38-12) Thou hast corrected man for iniquity. And thou hast made his soul to waste away like a spider: surely in vain is any man disquieted.12(38-13) Hear my prayer, O Lord, and my supplication: give ear to my tears. Be no silent: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner as all my fathers were.13(38-14) O forgive me, that I may be refreshed, before I go hence, and be no more.
