1 (25-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked in my innocence: and I have put my trust in the Lord, and shall not be weakened. 2 (25-2) Prove me, O Lord, and try me; burn my reins and my heart. 3 (25-3) For thy mercy is before my eyes; and I am well pleased with thy truth. 4 (25-4) I have not sat with the council of vanity: neither will I go in with the doers of unjust things. 5 (25-5) I have hated the assembly of the malignant; and with the wicked I will not sit. 6 (25-6) I will wash my hands among the innocent; and will compass thy altar, O Lord: 7 (25-7) That I may hear the voice of thy praise: and tell of all thy wondrous works. 8 (25-8) I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house; and the place where thy glory dwelleth. 9 (25-9) Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with bloody men: 10 (25-10) In whose hands are iniquities: their right hand is filled with gifts. 11 (25-11) But as for me, I have walked in my innocence: redeem me, and have mercy on me. 12 (25-12) My foot hath stood in the direct way: in the churches I will bless thee, O Lord.
1 (26-1) <The psalm of David before he was anointed.> The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid? 2 (26-2) Whilst the wicked draw near against me, to eat my flesh. My enemies that trouble me, have themselves been weakened, and have fallen. 3 (26-3) If armies in camp should stand to gether against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident. 4 (26-4) One thing I have asked of the Lord, this will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. That I may see the delight of the Lord, and may visit his temple. 5 (26-5) For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle. 6 (26-6) He hath exalted me upon a rock: and now he hath lifted up my head above my enemies. I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord. 7 (26-7) Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee: have mercy on me and hear me. 8 (26-8) My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek. 9 (26-9) Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour. 10 (26-10) For my father and my mother have left me: but the Lord hath taken me up. 11 (26-11) Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies. 12 (26-12) Deliver me not over to the will of them that trouble me; for unjust witnesses have risen up against me; and iniquity hath lied to itself. 13 (26-13) I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living. 14 (26-14) Expect the Lord, do manfully, and let thy heart take courage, and wait thou for the Lord.
1 (27-1) <A psalm for David himself.> Unto thee will I cry, O Lord: O my God, be not thou silent to me: lest if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. 2 (27-2) Hear, O Lord, the voice of my supplication, when I pray to thee; when I lift up my hands to thy holy temple. 3 (27-3) Draw me not away together with the wicked; and with the workers of iniquity destroy me not: Who speak peace with their neighbour, but evils are in their hearts. 4 (27-4) Give them according to their works, and according to the wickedness of their inventions. According to the works of their hands give thou to them: render to them their reward. 5 (27-5) Because they have not understood the works of the Lord, and the operations of his hands: thou shalt destroy them, and shalt not build them up. 6 (27-6) Blessed be the Lord, for he hath heard the voice of my supplication. 7 (27-7) The Lord is my helper and my protector: in him hath my heart confided, and I have been helped. And my flesh hath flourished again, and with my will I will give praise to him. 8 (27-8) The Lord is the strength of his people, and the protector of the salvation of his anointed. 9 (27-9) Save, O Lord, thy people, and bless thy inheritance: and rule them and exalt them for ever.
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 (29-1) <A psalm of a canticle, at the dedication of David’s house.> (29-2) I will extol thee, O Lord, for thou hast upheld me: and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me. 2 (29-3) O Lord my God, I have cried to thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 (29-4) Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit. 4 (29-5) Sing to the Lord, O ye his saints: and give praise to the memory of his holiness. 5 (29-6) For wrath is in his indignation; and life in his good will. In the evening weeping shall have place, and in the morning gladness. 6 (29-7) And in my abundance I said: I shall never be moved. 7 (29-8) O Lord, in thy favour, thou gavest strength to my beauty. Thou turnedst away thy face from me, and I became troubled. 8 (29-9) To thee, O Lord, will I cry: and I will make supplication to my God. 9 (29-10) What profit is there in my blood, whilst I go down to corruption? Shall dust confess to thee, or declare thy truth? 10 (29-11) The Lord hath heard, and hath had mercy on me: the Lord became my helper. 11 (29-12) Thou hast turned for me my mourning into joy: thou hast cut my sackcloth, and hast compassed me with gladness: 12 (29-13) To the end that my glory may sing to thee, and I may not regret: O Lord my God, I will give praise to thee for ever.
1 (30-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David, in an ecstasy.> (30-2) In thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: deliver me in thy justice. 2 (30-3) Bow down thy ear to me: make haste to deliver me. Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a house of refuge, to save me. 3 (30-4) For thou art my strength and my refuge; and for thy name’s sake thou wilt lead me, and nourish me. 4 (30-5) Thou wilt bring me out of this snare, which they have hidden for me: for thou art my protector. 5 (30-6) Into thy hands I commend my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth. 6 (30-7) Thou hast hated them that regard vanities, to no purpose. But I have hoped in the Lord: 7 (30-8) I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy. For thou hast regarded my humility, thou hast saved my soul out of distresses. 8 (30-9) And thou hast not shut me up in the hands of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a spacious place. 9 (30-10) Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am afflicted: my eye is troubled with wrath, my soul, and my belly: 10 (30-11) For my life is wasted with grief: and my years in sighs. My strength is weakened through poverty and my bones are disturbed. 11 (30-12) I am become a reproach among all my enemies, and very much to my neighbours; and a fear to my acquaintance. They that saw me without fled from me. 12 (30-13) I am forgotten as one dead from the heart. I am become as a vessel that is destroyed. 13 (30-14) For I have heard the blame of many that dwell round about. While they assembled together against me, they consulted to take away my life. 14 (30-15) But I have put my trust in thee, O Lord: I said: Thou art my God. 15 (30-16) My lots are in thy hands. Deliver me out of the hands of my enemies; and from them that persecute me. 16 (30-17) Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy mercy. 17 (30-18) Let me not be confounded, O Lord, for I have called upon thee. Let the wicked be ashamed, and be brought down to hell. 18 (30-19) Let deceitful lips be made dumb. Which speak iniquity against the just, with pride and abuse. 19 (30-20) O how great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord, which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee! Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, in the sight of the sons of men. 20 (30-21) Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy face, from the disturbance of men. Thou shalt protect them in thy tabernacle form the contradiction of tongues. 21 (30-22) Blessed be the Lord, for he hath shewn his wonderful mercy to me in a fortified city. 22 (30-23) But I said in the excess of my mind: I am cast away from before thy eyes. Therefore thou hast heard the voice of my prayer, when I cried to thee. 23 (30-24) O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord will require truth, and will repay them abundantly that act proudly. 24 (30-25) Do ye manfully, and let your heart be strengthened, all ye that hope in the Lord.
