Psalm 7; Psalm 8; Psalm 9; Acts 18

1 <The psalm of David, which he sung to the Lord, for the words of Chusi, the son of Jemini.> (7-2) O Lord, my God, in thee have I put my trust; same me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me. 2 (7-3) Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion, while there is no one to redeem me, nor to save. 3 (7-4) O Lord, my God, if I have done this thing, if there be iniquity in my hands: 4 (7-5) If I have rendered to them that repaid me evils, let me deservedly fall empty before my enemies. 5 (7-6) Let the enemy pursue my soul, and take it, and tread down my life, on the earth, and bring down my glory to the dust. 6 (7-7) Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: and be thou exalted in the borders of my enemies. And arise, O Lord, my God, in the precept which thou hast commanded: 7 (7-8) And a congregation of people shall surround thee. And for their sakes return thou on high. 8 (7-9) The Lord judgeth the people. Judge me, O Lord, according to my justice, and according to my innocence in me. 9 (7-10) The wickedness of sinners shall be brought to nought; and thou shalt direct the just: the searcher of hearts and reins is God. Just 10 (7-11) Is my help from the Lord; who saveth the upright of heart. 11 (7-12) God is a just judge, strong and patient: is he angry every day? 12 (7-13) Except you will be converted, he will brandish his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 13 (7-14) And in it he hath prepared to instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn. 14 (7-15) Behold he hath been in labour with injustice: he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth iniquity. 15 (7-16) He hath opened a pit and dug it: and he is fallen into the hole he made. 16 (7-17) His sorrow shall be turned on his own head: and his iniquity shall come down upon his crown. 17 (7-18) I will give glory to the Lord according to his justice: and will sing to the name of the Lord the most high.
1 <Unto the end, for the presses: a psalm for David.> (8-2) O Lord, our Lord, how admirable is thy name in the whole earth! For thy magnificence is elevated above the heavens. 2 (8-3) Out of the mouth of infants and of sucklings thou hast perfected praise, because of thy enemies, that thou mayst destroy the enemy and the avenger. 3 (8-4) For I will behold thy heavens, the works of thy fingers: the moon and the stars which thou hast founded. 4 (8-5) What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 (8-6) Thou hast made him a little less than the angels, thou hast crowned him with glory and honour: 6 (8-7) And hast set him over the works of thy hands. 7 (8-8) Thou hast subjected all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen: moreover, the beasts also of the fields. 8 (8-9) The birds of the air, and the fishes of the sea, that pass through the paths of the sea. 9 (8-10) O Lord, our Lord, how admirable is thy name in the whole earth!
1 <Unto the end, for the hidden things of the Son. A psalm for David.> (9-2) I will give praise to thee, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will relate all thy wonders. 2 (9-3) I will be glad, and rejoice in thee: I will sing to thy name, O thou most high. 3 (9-4) When my enemy shall be turned back: they shall be weakened, and perish before thy face. 4 (9-5) For thou hast maintained my judgment and my cause: thou hast sat on the throne, who judgest justice. 5 (9-6) Thou hast rebuked the Gentiles, and the wicked one hath perished; thou hast blotted out their name for ever and ever. 6 (9-7) The swords of the enemy have failed unto the end: and their cities thou hast destroyed. Their memory hath perished with a noise: 7 (9-8) But the Lord remaineth for ever. He hath prepared his throne in judgment: 8 (9-9) And he shall judge the world in equity, he shall judge the people in justice. 9 (9-10) And the Lord is become a refuge for the poor: a helper in due time in tribulation. 10 (9-11) And let them trust in thee who know thy name: for thou hast not forsaken them that seek thee, O Lord. 11 (9-12) Sing ye to the Lord, who dwelleth in Sion: declare his ways among the Gentiles: 12 (9-13) For requiring their blood, he hath remembered them: he hath not forgotten the cry of the poor. 13 (9-14) Have mercy on me, O Lord: see my humiliation which I suffer from my enemies. 14 (9-15) Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death, that I may declare all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion. 15 (9-16) I will rejoice in thy salvation: the Gentiles have stuck fast in the destruction which they prepared. Their foot hath been taken in the very snare which they hid. 16 (9-17) The Lord shall be known when he executeth judgments: the sinner hath been caught in the works of his own hands. 17 (9-18) The wicked shall be turned into hell, all the nations that forget God. 18 (9-19) For the poor man shall not be forgotten to the end: the patience of the poor shall not perish for ever. 19 (9-20) Arise, O Lord, let not man be strengthened: let the Gentiles be judged in thy sight. 20 (9-21) Appoint, O Lord, a lawgiver over them: that the Gentiles may know themselves to be but men.
1 After these things, departing from Athens, he came to Corinth. 2 And finding a certain Jew, named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with Priscilla his wife (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome), he came to them. 3 And because he was of the same trade, he remained with them and wrought. (Now they were tentmakers by trade.) 4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, bringing in the name of the Lord Jesus. And he persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. 5 And when Silas and Timothy were come from Macedonia, Paul was earnest in preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ. 6 But they gainsaying and blaspheming, he shook his garments and said to them: Your blood be upon your own heads: I am clean. From henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles. 7 And departing thence, he entered into the house of a certain man, named Titus Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house was adjoining to the synagogue. 8 And Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in the Lord, with all his house. And many of the Corinthians hearing, believed and were baptized. 9 And the Lord said to Paul in the night, by a vision: Do not fear, but speak. And hold not thy peace, 10 Because I am with thee and no man shall set upon thee, to hurt thee. For I have much people in this city. 11 And he stayed there a year and six months, teaching among them the word of God. 12 But when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews with one accord rose up against Paul and brought him to the judgment seat, 13 Saying: This man persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law. 14 And when Paul was beginning to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews: If it were some matter of injustice or an heinous deed, O Jews, I should with reason bear with you. 15 But if they be questions of word and names and of your law, look you to it. I will not be judge of such things. 16 And he drove them from the judgment seat. 17 And all laying hold on Sosthenes, the ruler of the synagogue, beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things. 18 But Paul, when he had stayed yet many days, taking his leave of the brethren, sailed thence into Syria (and with him Priscilla and Aquila), having shorn his head in Cenchrae. For he had a vow. 19 And he came to Ephesus and left them there. But he himself, entering into the synagogue, disputed with the Jews. 20 And when they desired him that he would tarry a longer time, he consented not: 21 But taking his leave and saying: I will return to you again, God willing, he departed from Ephesus. 22 And going down to Caesarea, he went up to Jerusalem and saluted the church: and so came down to Antioch. 23 And after he had spent some time there, he departed and went through the country of Galatia and Phrygia, in order, confirming all the disciples. 24 Now a certain Jew, named Apollo, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, came to Ephesus, one mighty in the scriptures. 25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord: and being fervent in spirit, spoke and taught diligently the things that are of Jesus, knowing only the baptism of John. 26 This man therefore began to speak boldly in the synagogue. Whom when Priscilla and Aquila had heard, they took him to them and expounded to him the way of the Lord more diligently. 27 And whereas he was desirous to go to Achaia, the brethren exhorting wrote to the disciples to receive him. Who, when he was come, helped them much who had believed. 28 For with much vigour he convinced the Jews openly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.
