Psalm 63; Psalm 64; Psalm 65; Romans 6

1 (62-1) <A psalm of David while he was in the desert of Edom.> (62-2) O God, my God, to thee do I watch at break of day. For thee my soul hath thirsted; for thee my flesh, O how many ways! 2 (62-3) In a desert land, and where there is no way, and no water: so in the sanctuary have I come before thee, to see thy power and thy glory. 3 (62-4) For thy mercy is better than lives: thee my lips will praise. 4 (62-5) Thus will I bless thee all my life long: and in thy name I will lift up my hands. 5 (62-6) Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness: and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips. 6 (62-7) If I have remembered thee upon my bed, I will meditate on thee in the morning: 7 (62-8) Because thou hast been my helper. And I will rejoice under the covert of thy wings: 8 (62-9) My soul hath stuck close to thee: thy right hand hath received me. 9 (62-10) But they have fought my soul in vain, they shall go into the lower parts of the earth: 10 (62-11) They shall be delivered into the hands of the sword, they shall be the portions of foxes. 11 (62-12) But the king shall rejoice in God, all they shall be praised that swear by him: because the mouth is stopped of them that speak wicked things.
1 (63-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> (63-2) Hear O God, my prayer, when I make supplication to thee: deliver my soul from the fear of the enemy. 2 (63-3) Thou hast protected me from the assembly of the malignant; from the multitude of the workers of iniquity. 3 (63-4) For they have whetted their tongues like a sword; they have bent their bow a bitter thing, 4 (63-5) To shoot in secret the undefiled. 5 (63-6) They will shoot at him on a sudden, and will not fear: they are resolute in wickedness. They have talked of hiding snares; they have said: Who shall see them? 6 (63-7) They have searched after iniquities: they have failed in their search. Man shall come to a deep heart: 7 (63-8) And God shall be exalted. The arrows of children are their wounds: 8 (63-9) And their tongues against them are made weak. All that saw them were troubled; 9 (63-10) And every man was afraid. And they declared the works of God, and understood his doings. 10 (63-11) The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in him: and all the upright in heart shall be praised.
1 (64-1) <To the end, a psalm of David. The canticle of Jeremias and Ezechiel to the people of the captivity, when they began to go out.> (64-2) A hymn, O God, becometh thee in Sion: and a vow shall be paid to thee in Jerusalem. 2 (64-3) O hear my prayer: all flesh shall come to thee. 3 (64-4) The words of the wicked have prevailed over us: and thou wilt pardon our transgressions. 4 (64-5) Blessed is he whom thou hast chosen and taken to thee: he shall dwell in thy courts. We shall be filled with the good things of thy house; holy is thy temple, 5 (64-6) Wonderful in justice. Hear us, O God our saviour, who art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and in the sea afar off. 6 (64-7) Thou who preparest the mountains by thy strength, being girded with power: 7 (64-8) Who troublest the depth of the sea, the noise of its waves. The Gentiles shall be troubled, 8 (64-9) And they that dwell in the uttermost borders shall be afraid at thy signs: thou shalt make the outgoings of the morning and of the evening to be joyful. 9 (64-10) Thou hast visited the earth, and hast plentifully watered it; thou hast many ways enriched it. The river of God is filled with water, thou hast prepared their food: for so is its preparation. 10 (64-11) Fill up plentifully the streams thereof, multiply its fruits; it shall spring up and rejoice in its showers. 11 (64-12) Thou shalt bless the crown of the year of thy goodness: and thy fields shall be filled with plenty. 12 (64-13) The beautiful places of the wilderness shall grow fat: and the hills shall be girded about with joy, 13 (64-14) The rams of the flock are clothed, and the vales shall abound with corn: they shall shout, yea they shall sing a hymn.
1 What shall we say, then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid! For we that are dead to sin, how shall we live any longer therein? 3 Know you not that all we who are baptized in Christ Jesus are baptized in his death? 4 For we are buried together with him by baptism into death: that, as Christ is risen from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we also may walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection. 6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin may be destroyed, to the end that we may serve sin no longer. 7 For he that is dead is justified from sin. 8 Now, if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall live also together with Christ. 9 Knowing that Christ, rising again from the dead, dieth now no more. Death shall no more have dominion over him. 10 For in that he died to sin, he died once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. 11 So do you also reckon that you are dead to sin, but alive unto God, in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, so as to obey the lusts thereof. 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of iniquity unto sin: but present yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead; and your members as instruments of justice unto God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace. 15 What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid! 16 Know you not that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey, whether it be of sin unto death or of obedience unto justice. 17 But thanks be to God, that you were the servants of sin but have obeyed from the heart unto that form of doctrine into which you have been delivered. 18 Being then freed from sin, we have been made servants of justice. 19 I speak an human thing, because of the infirmity of your flesh. For as you have yielded your members to serve uncleanness and iniquity, unto iniquity: so now yield your members to serve justice, unto sanctification. 20 For when you were the servants of sin, you were free men to justice. 21 What fruit therefore had you then in those things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of them is death. 22 But now being made free from sin and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end life everlasting. 23 For the wages of sin is death. But the grace of God, life everlasting in Christ Jesus our Lord.
