1(49-1) <A psalm for Asaph.> The God of gods, the Lord hath spoken: and he hath called the earth. From the rising of the sun, to the going down thereof:2(49-2) Out of Sion the loveliness of his beauty.3(49-3) God shall come manifestly: our God shall come, and shall not keep silence. A fire shall burn before him: and a mighty tempest shall be round about him.4(49-4) He shall call heaven from above, and the earth, to judge his people.5(49-5) Gather ye together his saints to him: who set his covenant before sacrifices.6(49-6) And the heavens shall declare his justice: for God is judge.7(49-7) Hear, O my people, and I will speak: O Israel, and I will testify to thee: I am God, thy God.8(49-8) I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices: and thy burnt offerings are always in my sight.9(49-9) I will not take calves out of thy house: nor he goats out of thy flocks.10(49-10) For all the beasts of the woods are mine: the cattle on the hills, and the oxen.11(49-11) I know all the fowls of the air: and with me is the beauty of the field.12(49-12) If I should be hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.13(49-13) Shall I eat the flesh of bullocks? or shall I drink the blood of goats?14(49-14) Offer to God the sacrifice of praise: and pay thy vows to the most High.15(49-15) And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.16(49-16) But to the sinner God hath said: Why dost thou declare my justices, and take my covenant in thy mouth?17(49-17) Seeing thou hast hated discipline: and hast cast my words behind thee.18(49-18) If thou didst see a thief thou didst run with him: and with adulterers thou hast been a partaker.19(49-19) Thy mouth hath abounded with evil, and thy tongue framed deceits.20(49-20) Sitting thou didst speak against thy brother, and didst lay a scandal against thy mother’s son:21(49-21) These things hast thou done, and I was silent. Thou thoughtest unjustly that I should be like to thee: but I will reprove thee, and set before thy face.22(49-22) Understand these things, you that forget God; lest he snatch you away, and there be none to deliver you.23(49-23) The sacrifice of praise shall glorify me: and there is the way by which I will shew him the salvation of God.
1(52-1) <Unto the end, for Maeleth, understandings to David.> The fool said in his heart: There is no God. (52-2) They are corrupted, and become abominable in iniquities: there is none that doth good.2(52-3) God looked down from heaven on the children of men: to see if there were any that did understand, or did seek God.3(52-4) All have gone aside, they are become unprofitable together, there is none that doth good, no not one.4(52-5) Shall not all the workers of iniquity know, who eat up my people as they eat bread?5(52-6) They have not called upon God: there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear. For God hath scattered the bones of them that please men: they have been confounded, because God hath despised them.6(52-7) Who will give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? when God shall bring back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
1(59-1) <Unto the end, for them that shall be changed, for the inscription of a title, to David himself, for doctrine, (59-2) When he set fire to Mesopotamia of Syria and Sobal: and Joab returned and slew of Edom, in the vale of the saltpits, twelve thousand men.> (59-3) O God, thou hast cast us off, and hast destroyed us; thou hast been angry, and hast had mercy on us.2(59-4) Thou hast moved the earth, and hast troubled it: heal thou the breaches thereof, for it has been moved.3(59-5) Thou hast shewn thy people hard things; thou hast made us drink the wine of sorrow.4(59-6) Thou hast given a warning to them that fear thee: that they may flee from before the bow: That thy beloved may be delivered.5(59-7) Save me with thy right hand, and hear me.6(59-8) God hath spoken in his holy place: I will rejoice, and I will divide Sichem; and will mete out the vale of tabernacles.7(59-9) Galaad is mine, and Manasses is mine: and Ephraim is the strength of my head. Juda is my king:8(59-10) Moab is the pot of my hope. Into Edom will I stretch out my shoe: to me the foreigners are made subject.9(59-11) Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?10(59-12) Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go out with our armies?11(59-13) Give us help from trouble: for vain is the salvation of man.12(59-14) Through God we shall do mightily: and he shall bring to nothing them that afflict us.
1(74-1) <Unto the end, corrupt not, a psalm of a canticle for Asaph.> (74-2) We will praise thee, O God: we will praise, and we will call upon thy name. We will relate thy wondrous works:2(74-3) When I shall take a time, I will judge justices.3(74-4) The earth is melted, and all that dwell therein: I have established the pillars thereof.4(74-5) I said to the wicked: Do not act wickedly: and to the sinners: Lift not up the horn.5(74-6) Lift not up your horn on high: speak not iniquity against God.6(74-7) For neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert hills:7(74-8) For God is the judge. One he putteth down, and another he lifteth up:8(74-9) For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup of strong wine full of mixture. And he hath poured it out from this to that: but the dregs thereof are not emptied: all the sinners of the earth shall drink.9(74-10) But I will declare for ever: I will sing to the God of Jacob.10(74-11) And I will break all the horns of sinners: but the horns of the just shall be exalted.
