Psalm 32; Psalm 33; Psalm 34; Psalm 35

1 (31-1) <To David himself, understanding.> Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. 2 (31-2) Blessed is the man to whom the Lord hath not imputed sin, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3 (31-3) Because I was silent my bones grew old; whilst I cried out all the day long. 4 (31-4) For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: I am turned in my anguish, whilst the thorn is fastened. 5 (31-5) I have acknowledged my sin to thee, and my injustice I have not concealed. I said I will confess against my self my injustice to the Lord: and thou hast forgiven the wickedness of my sin. 6 (31-6) For this shall every one that is holy pray to thee in a seasonable time. And yet in a flood of many waters, they shall not come nigh unto him. 7 (31-7) Thou art my refuge from the trouble which hath encompassed me: my joy, deliver me from them that surround me. 8 (31-8) I will give thee understanding, and I will instruct thee in this way, in which thou shalt go: I will fix my eyes upon thee. 9 (31-9) Do not become like the horse and the mule, who have no understanding. With bit and bridle bind fast their jaws, who come not near unto thee. 10 (31-10) Many are the scourges of the sinner, but mercy shall encompass him that hopeth in the Lord. 11 (31-11) Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye just, and glory, all ye right of heart.
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 (33-1) <For David, when he changed his countenance before Achimelech, who dismissed him, and he went his way.> (33-2) I will bless the Lord at all times, his praise shall be always in my mouth. 2 (33-3) In the Lord shall my soul be praised: let the meek hear and rejoice. 3 (33-4) O magnify the Lord with me; and let us extol his name together. 4 (33-5) I sought the Lord, and he heard me; and he delivered me from all my troubles. 5 (33-6) Come ye to him and be enlightened: and your faces shall not be confounded. 6 (33-7) This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him: and saved him out of all his troubles. 7 (33-8) The angel of the Lord shall encamp round about them that fear him: and shall deliver them. 8 (33-9) O taste, and see that the Lord is sweet: blessed is the man that hopeth in him. 9 (33-10) Fear the Lord, all ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. 10 (33-11) The rich have wanted, and have suffered hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not be deprived of any good. 11 (33-12) Come, children, hearken to me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord. 12 (33-13) Who is the man that desireth life: who liveth to see good days? 13 (33-14) Keep thy tongue form evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 14 (33-15) Turn away from evil and do good: seek after peace and pursue it. 15 (33-16) The eyes of the Lord are upon the just: and his ears unto their prayers. 16 (33-17) But the countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil things: to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. 17 (33-18) The just cried, and the Lord heard them: and delivered them out of all their troubles. 18 (33-19) The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit. 19 (33-20) Many are the afflictions of the just; but out of them all will the Lord deliver them. 20 (33-21) The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit. 21 (33-22) The death of the wicked is very evil: and they that hate the just shall be guilty. 22 (33-23) The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall offend.
1 (34-1) <For David himself.> Judge thou, O Lord, them that wrong me: overthrow them that fight against me. 2 (34-2) Take hold of arms and shield: and rise up to help me. 3 (34-3) Bring out the sword, and shut up the way against them that persecute me: say to my soul: I am thy salvation. 4 (34-4) Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and be confounded that devise evil against me. 5 (34-5) Let them become as dust before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord straiten them. 6 (34-6) Let their way become dark and slippery; and let the angel of the Lord pursue them. 7 (34-7) For without cause they have hidden their net for me unto destruction: without cause they have upbraided my soul. 8 (34-8) Let the snare which he knoweth not come upon him: and let the net which he hath hidden catch him: and into that very snare let them fall. 9 (34-9) But my soul shall rejoice in the Lord; and shall be delighted in his salvation. 10 (34-10) All my bones shall say: Lord, who is like to thee? Who deliverest the poor from the hand of them that are stronger than he; the needy and the poor from them that strip him. 11 (34-11) Unjust witnesses rising up have asked me things I knew not. 12 (34-12) They repaid me evil for good: to the depriving me of my soul. 13 (34-13) But as for me, when they were troublesome to me, I was clothed with haircloth. I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer shall be turned into my bosom. 14 (34-14) As a neighbour and as an own brother, so did I please: as one mourning and sorrowful so was I humbled. 15 (34-15) But they rejoiced against me, and came together: scourges were gathered together upon me, and I knew not. 16 (34-16) They were separated, and repented not: they tempted me, they scoffed at me with scorn: they gnashed upon me with their teeth. 17 (34-17) Lord, when wilt thou look upon me? rescue thou my soul from their malice: my only one from the lions. 18 (34-18) I will give thanks to thee in a great church; I will praise thee in a strong people. 19 (34-19) Let not them that are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: who have hated me without cause, and wink with the eyes. 20 (34-20) For they spoke indeed peaceably to me; and speaking in the anger of the earth they devised guile. 21 (34-21) And they opened their mouth wide against me; they said: Well done, well done, our eyes have seen it. 22 (34-22) Thou hast seen, O Lord, be not thou silent: O Lord, depart not from me. 23 (34-23) Arise, and be attentive to my judgment: to my cause, my God, and my Lord. 24 (34-24) Judge me, O Lord my God according to thy justice, and let them not rejoice over me. 25 (34-25) Let them not say in their hearts: It is well, it is well, to our mind: neither let them say: We have swallowed him up. 26 (34-26) Let them blush: and be ashamed to gether, who rejoice at my evils. Let them be clothed with confusion and shame, who speak great things against me. 27 (34-27) Let them rejoice and be glad, who are well pleased with my justice, and let them say always: The Lord be magnified, who delights in the peace of his servant. 28 (34-28) And my tongue shall meditate thy justice, thy praise all the day long.
