Psalm 68; Psalm 69; Romans 8:1-21

1 (67-1) <Unto the end, a psalm of a canticle for David himself.> (67-2) Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered: and let them that hate him flee from before his face. 2 (67-3) As smoke vanisheth, so let them vanish away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. 3 (67-4) And let the just feast, and rejoice before God: and be delighted with gladness. 4 (67-5) Sing ye to God, sing a psalm to his name, make a way for him who ascendeth upon the west: the Lord is his name. Rejoice ye before him: but the wicked shall be troubled at his presence, 5 (67-6) Who is the father of orphans, and the judge of widows. God in his holy place: 6 (67-7) God who maketh men of one manner to dwell in a house: Who bringeth out them that were bound in strength; in like manner them that provoke, that dwell in sepulchres. 7 (67-8) O God, when thou didst go forth in the sight of thy people, when thou didst pass through the desert: 8 (67-9) The earth was moved, and the heavens dropped at the presence of the God of Sina, at the presence of the God of Israel. 9 (67-10) Thou shalt set aside for thy inheritance a free rain, O God: and it was weakened, but thou hast made it perfect. 10 (67-11) In it shall thy animals dwell; in thy sweetness, O God, thou hast provided for the poor. 11 (67-12) The Lord shall give the word to them that preach good tidings with great power. 12 (67-13) The king of powers is of the beloved, of the beloved; and the beauty of the house shall divide spoils. 13 (67-14) If you sleep among the midst of lots, you shall be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and the hinder parts of her back with the paleness of gold. 14 (67-15) When he that is in heaven appointeth kings over her, they shall be whited with snow in Selmon. 15 (67-16) The mountain of God is a fat mountain. A curdled mountain, a fat mountain. 16 (67-17) Why suspect, ye curdled mountains? A mountain in which God is well pleased to dwell: for there the Lord shall dwell unto the end. 17 (67-18) The chariot of God is attended by ten thousands; thousands of them that rejoice: the Lord is among them in Sina, in the holy place. 18 (67-19) Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive; thou hast received gifts in men. Yea for those also that do not believe, the dwelling of the Lord God. 19 (67-20) Blessed be the Lord day by day: the God of our salvation will make our journey prosperous to us. 20 (67-21) Our God is the God of salvation: and of the Lord, of the Lord are the issues from death. 21 (67-22) But God shall break the heads of his enemies: the hairy crown of them that walk on in their sins. 22 (67-23) The Lord said: I will turn them from Basan, I will turn them into the depth of the sea: 23 (67-24) That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thy enemies; the tongue of thy dogs be red with the same. 24 (67-25) They have seen thy goings, O God, the goings of my God: of my king who is in his sanctuary. 25 (67-26) Princes went before joined with singers, in the midst of young damsels playing on timbrels. 26 (67-27) In the churches bless ye God the Lord, from the fountains of Israel. 27 (67-28) There is Benjamin a youth, in ecstasy of mind. The princes of Juda are their leaders: the princes of Zabulon, the princes of Nephthali. 28 (67-29) Command thy strength, O God confirm, O God, what thou hast wrought in us. 29 (67-30) From thy temple in Jerusalem, kings shall offer presents to thee. 30 (67-31) Rebuke the wild beasts of the reeds, the congregation of bulls with the kine of the people; who seek to exclude them who are tried with silver. Scatter thou the nations that delight in wars: 31 (67-32) Ambassadors shall come out of Egypt: Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands to God. 32 (67-33) Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth: sing ye to the Lord: Sing ye to God, 33 (67-34) Who mounteth above the heaven of heavens, to the east. Behold he will give to his voice the voice of power: 34 (67-35) Give ye glory to God for Israel, his magnificence, and his power is in the clouds. 35 (67-36) God is wonderful in his saints: the God of Israel is he who will give power and strength to his people. Blessed be God.
1 (68-1) <Unto the end, for them that shall be changed; for David.> (68-2) Save me, O God: for the waters are come in even unto my soul. 2 (68-3) I stick fast in the mire of the deep and there is no sure standing. I am come into the depth of the sea, and a tempest hath overwhelmed me. 3 (68-4) I have laboured with crying; my jaws are become hoarse, my eyes have failed, whilst I hope in my God. 4 (68-5) They are multiplied above the hairs of my head, who hate me without cause. My enemies are grown strong who have wrongfully persecuted me: then did I pay that which I took not away. 5 (68-6) O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my offences are not hidden from thee: 6 (68-7) Let not them be ashamed for me, who look for thee, O Lord, the Lord of hosts. Let them not be confounded on my account, who seek thee, O God of Israel. 7 (68-8) Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face. 8 (68-9) I am become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to the sons of my mother. 9 (68-10) For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up: and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me. 10 (68-11) And I covered my soul in fasting: and it was made a reproach to me. 11 (68-12) And I made haircloth my garment: and I became a byword to them. 12 (68-13) They that sat in the gate spoke against me: and they that drank wine made me their song. 13 (68-14) But as for me, my prayer is to thee, O Lord; for the time of thy good pleasure, O God. In the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation. 14 (68-15) Draw me out of the mire, that I may not stick fast: deliver me from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters. 15 (68-16) Let not the tempest of water drown me, nor the deep water swallow me up: and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me. 16 (68-17) Hear me, O Lord, for thy mercy is kind; look upon me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies. 17 (68-18) And turn not away thy face from thy servant: for I am in trouble, hear me speedily. 18 (68-19) Attend to my soul, and deliver it: save me because of my enemies. 19 (68-20) Thou knowest my reproach, and my confusion, and my shame. 20 (68-21) In thy sight are all they that afflict me; my heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none. 21 (68-22) And they gave me gall for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. 22 (68-23) Let their table become as a snare before them, and a recompense, and a stumblingblock. 23 (68-24) Let their eyes be darkened that they see not; and their back bend thou down always. 24 (68-25) Pour out thy indignation upon them: and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them. 25 (68-26) Let their habitation be made desolate: and let there be none to dwell in their tabernacles. 26 (68-27) Because they have persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; and they have added to the grief of my wounds. 27 (68-28) Add thou iniquity upon their iniquity: and let them not come into thy justice. 28 (68-29) Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; and with the just let them not be written. 29 (68-30) But I am poor and sorrowful: thy salvation, O God, hath set me up. 30 (68-31) I will praise the name of God with a canticle: and I will magnify him with praise. 31 (68-32) And it shall please God better than a young calf, that bringeth forth horns and hoofs. 32 (68-33) Let the poor see and rejoice: seek ye God, and your soul shall live. 33 (68-34) For the Lord hath heard the poor: and hath not despised his prisoners. 34 (68-35) Let the heavens and the earth praise him; the sea, and every thing that creepeth therein. 35 (68-36) For God will save Sion, and the cities of Juda shall be built up. And they shall dwell there, and acquire it by inheritance. 36 (68-37) And the seed of his servants shall possess it; and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
1 There is now therefore no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh. 2 For the law of the spirit of life, in Christ Jesus, hath delivered me from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and of sin, hath condemned sin in the flesh. 4 That the justification of the law might be fulfilled in us who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit. 5 For they that are according to the flesh mind the things that are of the flesh: but they that are according to the spirit mind the things that are of the spirit. 6 For the wisdom of the flesh is death: but the wisdom of the spirit is life and peace. 7 Because the wisdom of the flesh is an enemy to God. For it is not subject to the law of God: neither can it be. 8 And they who are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But you are not in the flesh, but the spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body indeed is dead, because of sin: but the spirit liveth, because of justification. 11 And if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you; he that raised up Jesus Christ, from the dead shall quicken also your mortal bodies, because of his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you shall die: but if by the Spirit you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live. 14 For whosoever are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear: but you have received the spirit of adoption of sons, whereby we cry: Abba (Father). 16 For the Spirit himself giveth testimony to our spirit that we are the sons of God. 17 And if sons, heirs also; heirs indeed of God and joint heirs with Christ: yet so, if we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come that shall be revealed in us. 19 For the expectation of the creature waiteth for the revelation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity: not willingly, but by reason of him that made it subject, in hope. 21 Because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the children of God.
