19:025:001 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
19:025:002 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine
enemies triumph over me.
19:025:003 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be
ashamed which transgress without cause.
19:025:004 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
19:025:005 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my
salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
19:025:006 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;
for they have been ever of old.
19:025:007 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions:
according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness'
sake, O LORD.
19:025:008 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners
in the way.
19:025:009 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach
19:025:010 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as
keep his covenant and his testimonies.
19:025:011 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is
19:025:012 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in
the way that he shall choose.
19:025:013 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the
19:025:014 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will
shew them his covenant.
19:025:015 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet
out of the net.
19:025:016 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate
19:025:017 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of
19:025:018 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my
19:025:019 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me
with cruel hatred.
19:025:020 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I
put my trust in thee.
19:025:021 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
19:025:022 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
19:026:001 Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have
trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
19:026:002 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
19:026:003 For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked
in thy truth.
19:026:004 I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with
19:026:005 I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit
with the wicked.
19:026:006 I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine
altar, O LORD:
19:026:007 That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of
all thy wondrous works.
19:026:008 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place
where thine honour dwelleth.
19:026:009 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:
19:026:010 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of
19:026:011 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and
be merciful unto me.
19:026:012 My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I
bless the LORD.
19:027:001 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the
LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
19:027:002 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me
to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
19:027:003 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not
fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be
19:027:004 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after;
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my
life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his
19:027:005 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion:
in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set
me up upon a rock.
19:027:006 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round
about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices
of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
19:027:007 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon
me, and answer me.
19:027:008 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee,
Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
19:027:009 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in
anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake
me, O God of my salvation.
19:027:010 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will
take me up.
19:027:011 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because
of mine enemies.
19:027:012 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false
witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out
19:027:013 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of
the LORD in the land of the living.
19:027:014 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen
thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
19:028:001 Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me:
lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down
into the pit.
19:028:002 Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when
I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.
19:028:003 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of
iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief
is in their hearts.
19:028:004 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the
wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of
their hands; render to them their desert.
19:028:005 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the
operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build
19:028:006 Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my
19:028:007 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.
19:028:008 The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of
19:028:009 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also,
and lift them up for ever.
19:029:001 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and
19:029:002 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the
LORD in the beauty of holiness.
19:029:003 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the God of glory
thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.
19:029:004 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is
full of majesty.
19:029:005 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD
breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
19:029:006 He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion
like a young unicorn.
19:029:007 The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire.
19:029:008 The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness; the LORD shaketh
the wilderness of Kadesh.
19:029:009 The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and
discovereth the forests: and in his temple doth every one
speak of his glory.
19:029:010 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King
19:029:011 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will
bless his people with peace.
19:030:001 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and
hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
19:030:002 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
19:030:003 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast
kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
19:030:004 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the
remembrance of his holiness.
19:030:005 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
19:030:006 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
19:030:007 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand
strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
19:030:008 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made
19:030:009 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
19:030:010 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
19:030:011 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast
put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
19:030:012 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be
silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
19:031:001 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed:
deliver me in thy righteousness.
19:031:002 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my
strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
19:031:003 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's
sake lead me, and guide me.
19:031:004 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for
thou art my strength.
19:031:005 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O
LORD God of truth.
19:031:006 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in
19:031:007 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast
considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
19:031:008 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast
set my feet in a large room.
19:031:009 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is
consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.
19:031:010 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my
strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are
19:031:011 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among
my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did
see me without fled from me.
19:031:012 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken
19:031:013 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side:
while they took counsel together against me, they devised to
take away my life.
19:031:014 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.
19:031:015 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine
enemies, and from them that persecute me.
19:031:016 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy
19:031:017 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee:
let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the
19:031:018 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous
things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
19:031:019 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them
that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in
thee before the sons of men!
19:031:020 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the
pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from
the strife of tongues.
19:031:021 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous
kindness in a strong city.
19:031:022 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes:
nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when
I cried unto thee.
19:031:023 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth
the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
19:031:024 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye
that hope in the LORD.
19:032:001 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is
19:032:002 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no guile.
19:032:003 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all
the day long.
19:032:004 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is
turned into the drought of summer. Selah.
19:032:005 I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not
hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD;
and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
19:032:006 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a
time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great
waters they shall not come nigh unto him.
19:032:007 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble;
thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.
19:032:008 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou
shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
19:032:009 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no
understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and
bridle, lest they come near unto thee.
19:032:010 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in
the LORD, mercy shall compass him about.
19:032:011 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for
joy, all ye that are upright in heart.
19:033:001 Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for
19:033:002 Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and
an instrument of ten strings.
19:033:003 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
19:033:004 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done
19:033:005 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the
goodness of the LORD.
19:033:006 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the
host of them by the breath of his mouth.
19:033:007 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he
layeth up the depth in storehouses.
19:033:008 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of
the world stand in awe of him.
19:033:009 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood
19:033:010 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he
maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
19:033:011 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his
heart to all generations.
19:033:012 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people
whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
19:033:013 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of
19:033:014 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the
inhabitants of the earth.
19:033:015 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their
19:033:016 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty
man is not delivered by much strength.
19:033:017 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver
any by his great strength.
19:033:018 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon
them that hope in his mercy;
19:033:019 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in
19:033:020 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
19:033:021 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in
his holy name.
19:033:022 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in
19:034:001 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall
continually be in my mouth.
19:034:002 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall
hear thereof, and be glad.
19:034:003 O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name
19:034:004 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all
19:034:005 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were
19:034:006 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out
of all his troubles.
19:034:007 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear
him, and delivereth them.
19:034:008 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that
trusteth in him.
19:034:009 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them
that fear him.
19:034:010 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek
the LORD shall not want any good thing.
19:034:011 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear
of the LORD.
19:034:012 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that
he may see good?
19:034:013 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
19:034:014 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
19:034:015 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are
open unto their cry.
19:034:016 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off
the remembrance of them from the earth.
19:034:017 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them
out of all their troubles.
19:034:018 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and
saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19:034:019 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD
delivereth him out of them all.
19:034:020 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
19:034:021 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous
shall be desolate.
19:034:022 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them
that trust in him shall be desolate.
19:035:001 Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight
against them that fight against me.
19:035:002 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
19:035:003 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that
persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
19:035:004 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my
soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that
devise my hurt.
19:035:005 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the
LORD chase them.
19:035:006 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the
LORD persecute them.
19:035:007 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit,
which without cause they have digged for my soul.
19:035:008 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net
that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let
19:035:009 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in
19:035:010 All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which
deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea,
the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
19:035:011 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things
that I knew not.
19:035:012 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
19:035:013 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth:
I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into
mine own bosom.
19:035:014 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I
bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
19:035:015 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves
together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together
against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased
19:035:016 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with
19:035:017 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their
destructions, my darling from the lions.
19:035:018 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will
praise thee among much people.
19:035:019 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me:
neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a
19:035:020 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters
against them that are quiet in the land.
19:035:021 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha,
aha, our eye hath seen it.
19:035:022 This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not
far from me.
19:035:023 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause,
my God and my Lord.
19:035:024 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and
let them not rejoice over me.
19:035:025 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let
them not say, We have swallowed him up.
19:035:026 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that
rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and
dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
19:035:027 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous
cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be
magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his
19:035:028 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy
praise all the day long.
19:036:001 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
19:036:002 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity
be found to be hateful.
19:036:003 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left
off to be wise, and to do good.
19:036:004 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way
that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
19:036:005 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness
reacheth unto the clouds.
19:036:006 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments
are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
19:036:007 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the
children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
19:036:008 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy
house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy
19:036:009 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we
19:036:010 O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and
thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
19:036:011 Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the
hand of the wicked remove me.
19:036:012 There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down,
and shall not be able to rise.
19:037:001 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious
against the workers of iniquity.
19:037:002 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as
the green herb.
19:037:003 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the
land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
19:037:004 Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the
desires of thine heart.
19:037:005 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall
bring it to pass.
19:037:006 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and
thy judgment as the noonday.
19:037:007 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself
because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man
who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
19:037:008 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any
wise to do evil.
19:037:009 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the
LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
19:037:010 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou
shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
19:037:011 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight
themselves in the abundance of peace.
19:037:012 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him
with his teeth.
19:037:013 The LORD shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is
19:037:014 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow,
to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of
19:037:015 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows
shall be broken.
19:037:016 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches
of many wicked.
19:037:017 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD
upholdeth the righteous.
19:037:018 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their
inheritance shall be for ever.
19:037:019 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of
famine they shall be satisfied.
19:037:020 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall
be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall
they consume away.
19:037:021 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous
sheweth mercy, and giveth.
19:037:022 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and
they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
19:037:023 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he
delighteth in his way.
19:037:024 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the
LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
19:037:025 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the
righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
19:037:026 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
19:037:027 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
19:037:028 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints;
they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall
be cut off.
19:037:029 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for
19:037:030 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue
talketh of judgment.
19:037:031 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall
19:037:032 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
19:037:033 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when
he is judged.
19:037:034 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to
inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see
19:037:035 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself
like a green bay tree.
19:037:036 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him,
but he could not be found.
19:037:037 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of
that man is peace.
19:037:038 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of
the wicked shall be cut off.
19:037:039 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their
strength in the time of trouble.
19:037:040 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall
deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they
trust in him.
19:038:001 O lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy
19:038:002 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me
19:038:003 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger;
neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
19:038:004 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy
burden they are too heavy for me.
19:038:005 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
19:038:006 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the
19:038:007 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is
no soundness in my flesh.
19:038:008 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the
disquietness of my heart.
19:038:009 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid
19:038:010 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of
mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
19:038:011 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my
kinsmen stand afar off.
19:038:012 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they
that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine
deceits all the day long.
19:038:013 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that
openeth not his mouth.
19:038:014 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are
19:038:015 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
19:038:016 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over
me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
19:038:017 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before
19:038:018 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19:038:019 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they
that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
19:038:020 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries;
because I follow the thing that good is.
19:038:021 Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me.
19:038:022 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
19:039:001 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my
tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked
is before me.
19:039:002 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and
my sorrow was stirred.
19:039:003 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire
burned: then spake I with my tongue,
19:039:004 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days,
what it is: that I may know how frail I am.
19:039:005 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age
is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state
is altogether vanity. Selah.
19:039:006 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are
disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who
shall gather them.
19:039:007 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
19:039:008 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the
reproach of the foolish.
19:039:009 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
19:039:010 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of
19:039:011 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou
makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every
man is vanity. Selah.
19:039:012 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy
peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a
sojourner, as all my fathers were.
19:039:013 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence,
and be no more.
19:040:001 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and
heard my cry.
19:040:002 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry
clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
19:040:003 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our
God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
19:040:004 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and
respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
19:040:005 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast
done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be
reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak
of them, they are more than can be numbered.
19:040:006 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast
thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not
19:040:007 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is
written of me,
19:040:008 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my
19:040:009 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I
have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
19:040:010 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have
declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not
concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great
19:040:011 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy
lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
19:040:012 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities
have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up;
they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart
19:040:013 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help
19:040:014 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my
soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to
shame that wish me evil.
19:040:015 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto
me, Aha, aha.
19:040:016 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let
such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be
19:040:017 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou
art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
19:041:001 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver
him in time of trouble.
19:041:002 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall
be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto
the will of his enemies.
19:041:003 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou
wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
19:041:004 I said, LORD, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have
sinned against thee.
19:041:005 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name
19:041:006 And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart
gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth
19:041:007 All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do
they devise my hurt.
19:041:008 An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now
that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
19:041:009 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did
eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
19:041:010 But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I
may requite them.
19:041:011 By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth
not triumph over me.
19:041:012 And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and
settest me before thy face for ever.
19:041:013 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to
everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
19:042:001 As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul
after thee, O God.
19:042:002 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I
come and appear before God?
19:042:003 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they
continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
19:042:004 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I
had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of
God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that
19:042:005 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the
help of his countenance.
19:042:006 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I
remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites,
from the hill Mizar.
19:042:007 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all
thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
19:042:008 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the day time,
and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto
the God of my life.
19:042:009 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why
go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
19:042:010 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while
they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
19:042:011 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who
is the health of my countenance, and my God.
19:043:001 Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation:
O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
19:043:002 For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me
off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
19:043:003 O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them
bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
19:043:004 Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding
joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
19:043:005 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted
within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the
health of my countenance, and my God.
19:044:001 We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us,
what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
19:044:002 How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and
plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast
19:044:003 For they got not the land in possession by their own sword,
neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and
thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou
hadst a favour unto them.
19:044:004 Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.
19:044:005 Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name
will we tread them under that rise up against us.
19:044:006 For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save
19:044:007 But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to
shame that hated us.
19:044:008 In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for
19:044:009 But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not
forth with our armies.
19:044:010 Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which
hate us spoil for themselves.
19:044:011 Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast
scattered us among the heathen.
19:044:012 Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy
wealth by their price.
19:044:013 Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a
derision to them that are round about us.
19:044:014 Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the
head among the people.
19:044:015 My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my
face hath covered me,
19:044:016 For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by
reason of the enemy and avenger.
19:044:017 All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee,
neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
19:044:018 Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined
from thy way;
19:044:019 Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and
covered us with the shadow of death.
19:044:020 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our
hands to a strange god;
19:044:021 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of
19:044:022 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are
counted as sheep for the slaughter.
19:044:023 Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for
19:044:024 Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction
and our oppression?
19:044:025 For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth
unto the earth.
19:044:026 Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
19:045:001 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things
which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a
19:045:002 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into
thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
19:045:003 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory
and thy majesty.
19:045:004 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and
meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach
thee terrible things.
19:045:005 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies;
whereby the people fall under thee.
19:045:006 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy
kingdom is a right sceptre.
19:045:007 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore
God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness
above thy fellows.
19:045:008 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of
the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
19:045:009 Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy
right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
19:045:010 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear;
forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
19:045:011 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy
Lord; and worship thou him.
19:045:012 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the
rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
19:045:013 The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of
19:045:014 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework:
the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought
19:045:015 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall
enter into the king's palace.
19:045:016 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest
make princes in all the earth.
19:045:017 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations:
therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
19:046:001 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in
19:046:002 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and
though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
19:046:003 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the
mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
19:046:004 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city
of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
19:046:005 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall
help her, and that right early.
19:046:006 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his
voice, the earth melted.
19:046:007 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
19:046:008 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath
made in the earth.
19:046:009 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh
the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the
chariot in the fire.
19:046:010 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the
heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
19:046:011 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.
19:047:001 O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the
voice of triumph.
19:047:002 For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over
all the earth.
19:047:003 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our
19:047:004 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of
Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
19:047:005 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a
19:047:006 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King,
19:047:007 For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with
19:047:008 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of
19:047:009 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the
people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth
belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.
19:048:001 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of
our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
19:048:002 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount
Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
19:048:003 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
19:048:004 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
19:048:005 They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and
19:048:006 Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in
19:048:007 Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
19:048:008 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of
hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever.
19:048:009 We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of
19:048:010 According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends
of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
19:048:011 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad,
because of thy judgments.
19:048:012 Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers
19:048:013 Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may
tell it to the generation following.
19:048:014 For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our
guide even unto death.
19:049:001 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the
19:049:002 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
19:049:003 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart
shall be of understanding.
19:049:004 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark
saying upon the harp.
19:049:005 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity
of my heels shall compass me about?
19:049:006 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the
multitude of their riches;
19:049:007 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to
God a ransom for him:
19:049:008 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth
19:049:009 That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
19:049:010 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the
brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
19:049:011 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for
ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call
their lands after their own names.
19:049:012 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the
beasts that perish.
19:049:013 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve
their sayings. Selah.
19:049:014 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on
them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the
morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from
19:049:015 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for
he shall receive me. Selah.
19:049:016 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of
his house is increased;
19:049:017 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall
not descend after him.
19:049:018 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise
thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
19:049:019 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never
19:049:020 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the
beasts that perish.
