3. My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

4. These things I remember, and pour out my soul within me, How I went with the throng, and led them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, a multitude keeping holyday.

5. 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 [For] the help of his countenance.

6. O my God, my soul is cast down within me: Therefore do I remember thee from the land of the Jordan, And the Hermons, from the hill Mizar.

7. Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterfalls: All thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

8. [Yet] Jehovah will command his lovingkindness in the day-time; And in the night his song shall be with me, [Even] a prayer unto the God of my life.

9. I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

1. Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: Oh deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

2. For thou art the God of my strength; why hast thou cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3. Oh send out thy light and thy truth; let them lead me: Let them bring me unto thy holy hill, And to thy tabernacles.

4. Then will I go unto the altar of God, Unto God my exceeding joy; And upon the harp will I praise thee, O God, my God.

5. 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 help of my countenance, and my God.

1. For the Chief Musician. [A Psalm] of the sons of Korah. Maschil. We have heard with our ears, O God, Our fathers have told us, What work thou didst in their days, In the days of old.

2. Thou didst drive out the nations with thy hand; But them thou didst plant: Thou didst afflict the peoples; But them thou didst spread abroad.

3. For they gat 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 wast favorable unto them.

4. Thou art my King, O God: Command deliverance for Jacob.

5. Through thee will we push down our adversaries: Through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

8. In God have we made our boast all the day long, And we will give thanks unto thy name for ever. Selah

9. But now thou hast cast [us] off, and brought us to dishonor, And goest not forth with our hosts.

10. Thou makest us to turn back from the adversary; And they that hate us take spoil for themselves.

11. Thou hast made us like sheep [appointed] for food, And hast scattered us among the nations.

12. Thou sellest thy people for nought, And hast not increased [thy wealth] by their price.

13. Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and a derision to them that are round about us.

14. Thou makest us a byword among the nations, A shaking of the head among the peoples.

15. All the day long is my dishonor before me, And the shame of my face hath covered me,

16. For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth, By reason of the enemy and the avenger.

17. All this is come upon us; Yet have we not forgotten thee, Neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.

18. Our heart is not turned back, Neither have our steps declined from thy way,

19. That thou hast sore broken us in the place of jackals, And covered us with the shadow of death.

20. If we have forgotten the name of our God, Or spread forth our hands to a strange god;

21. Will not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

22. Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

23. Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? Arise, cast [us] not off for ever.

24. Wherefore hidest thou thy face, And forgettest our affliction and our oppression?

25. For our soul is bowed down to the dust: Our body cleaveth unto the earth.

26. Rise up for our help, And redeem us for thy lovingkindness' sake.

7. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness: Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

19. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, And thy tongue frameth deceit.

20. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; Thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

21. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; Thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one as thyself: [But] I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes.

22. Now consider this, ye that forget God, Lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver:

23. Whoso offereth the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifieth me; And to him that ordereth his way [aright] Will I show the salvation of God.

16. For thou delightest not in sacrifice; else would I give it: Thou hast no pleasure in burnt-offering.

17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: Build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19. Then will thou delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, In burnt-offering and in whole burnt-offering: Then will they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

1. For the Chief Musician. Maschil of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Abimelech. Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? The lovingkindness of God [endureth] continually.

7. Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And strengthened himself in his wickedness.

9. I will give thee thanks for ever, because thou hast done it; And I will hope in thy name, for it is good, in the presence of thy saints.

1. For the Chief Musician; set to Mahalath. Maschil of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none that doeth good.

2. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there were any that did understand, That did seek after God.

3. Every one of them is gone back; they are together become filthy; There is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people [as] they eat bread, And call not upon God?

5. There were they in great fear, where no fear was; For God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: Thou hast put them to shame, because of God hath rejected them.

6. Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Then shall Jacob rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.

4. My heart is sore pained within me: And the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

5. Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, And horror hath overwhelmed me.

6. And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then would I fly away, and be at rest.

7. Lo, then would I wander far off, I would lodge in the wilderness. Selah

8. I would haste me to a shelter From the stormy wind and tempest.

9. Destroy, O Lord, [and] divide their tongue; For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

10. Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: Iniquity also and mischief are in the midst of it.

11. Wickedness is in the midst thereof: Oppression and guile depart not from its streets.

12. For it was not an enemy that reproached me; Then I could have borne it: Neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; Then I would have hid myself from him:

13. But it was thou, a man mine equal, My companion, and my familiar friend.

14. We took sweet counsel together; We walked in the house of God with the throng.

15. Let death come suddenly upon them, Let them go down alive into Sheol; For wickedness is in their dwelling, in the midst of them.

16. As for me, I will call upon God; And Jehovah will save me.

17. Evening, and morning, and at noonday, will I complain, and moan; And he will hear my voice.

18. He hath redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me; For they were many [that strove] with me.

19. God will hear, and answer them, Even he that abideth of old, Selah [The men] who have no changes, And who fear not God.

20. He hath put forth his hands against such as were at peace with him: He hath profaned his covenant.

21. His mouth was smooth as butter, But his heart was war: His words were softer than oil, Yet were they drawn swords.

22. Cast thy burden upon Jehovah, and he will sustain thee: He will never suffer the righteous to be moved.

23. But thou, O God, wilt bring them down into the pit of destruction: Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; But I will trust in thee.

1. For the Chief Musician; set to Jonath elem rehokim. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam: when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me.

2. I will cry unto God Most High, Unto God that performeth [all things] for me.

3. He will send from heaven, and save me, [When] he that would swallow me up reproacheth; Selah God will send forth his lovingkindness and his truth.

4. My soul is among lions; I lie among them that are set on fire, Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword.

5. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [Let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.

6. They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down: They have digged a pit before me; They are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. Selah

3. The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.

4. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: [They are] like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear,

5. Which hearkeneth not to the voice of charmers, Charming never so wisely.

6. Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: Break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Jehovah.

7. Let them melt away as water that runneth apace: When he aimeth his arrows, let them be as though they were cut off.

8. [Let them be] as a snail which melteth and passeth away, [Like] the untimely birth of a woman, that hath not seen the sun.

9. Before your pots can feel the thorns, He will take them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.

5. Even thou, O Jehovah God of hosts, the God of Israel, Arise to visit all the nations: Be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah

6. They return at evening, they howl like a dog, And go round about the city.

7. Behold, they belch out with their mouth; Swords are in their lips: For who, [say they], doth hear?

10. My God with his lovingkindness will meet me: God will let me see [my desire] upon mine enemies.

11. Slay them not, lest my people forget: Scatter them by thy power, and bring them down, O Lord our shield.

12. [For] the sin of their mouth, [and] the words of their lips, Let them even be taken in their pride, And for cursing and lying which they speak.

13. Consume them in wrath, consume them, so that they shall be no more: And let them know that God ruleth in Jacob, Unto the ends of the earth. Selah

14. And at evening let them return, let them howl like a dog, And go round about the city.

15. They shall wander up and down for food, And tarry all night if they be not satisfied.
