Salmos

1. Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

2. Let the redeemed of Jehovah say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the oppressor,

3. And gathered out of the countries, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the sea.

4. They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way, they found no city of habitation;

5. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them:

6. Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble, {and} he delivered them out of their distresses,

7. And he led them forth by a right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

8. Let them give thanks unto Jehovah for his loving-kindness, and for his wondrous works to the children of men;

9. For he hath satisfied the longing soul and filled the hungry soul with good.

10. Such as inhabit darkness and the shadow of death, bound in affliction and iron,

11. Because they had rebelled against the words of *God, and had despised the counsel of the Most High; ...

12. And he bowed down their heart with labour; they stumbled, and there was none to help:

13. Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble, {and} he saved them out of their distresses;

14. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bands in sunder.

15. Let them give thanks unto Jehovah for his loving-kindness, and for his wondrous works to the children of men;

16. For he hath broken the gates of bronze, and cut asunder the bars of iron.

17. Fools, because of their way of transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted;

18. Their soul abhorreth all manner of food, and they draw near unto the gates of death:

19. Then they cry unto Jehovah in their trouble, {and} he saveth them out of their distresses;

20. He sendeth his word, and healeth them, and delivereth them from their destructions.

21. Let them give thanks unto Jehovah for his loving-kindness, and for his wondrous works to the children of men,

22. And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works in joyful song.

23. They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters,

24. These see the works of Jehovah, and his wonders in the deep.

25. For he speaketh, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof:

26. They mount up to the heavens, they go down to the depths; their soul is melted because of trouble;

27. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and they are at their wits' end:

28. Then they cry unto Jehovah in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses;

29. He maketh the storm a calm, and the waves thereof are still:

30. And they rejoice because they are quiet; and he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

31. Let them give thanks unto Jehovah for his loving-kindness, and for his wondrous works to the children of men;

32. Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the session of the elders.

33. He maketh rivers into a wilderness, and water-springs into dry ground;

34. A fruitful land into a plain of salt, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

35. He maketh the wilderness into a pool of water, and the dry land into water-springs;

36. And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, and they establish a city of habitation;

37. And sow fields, and plant vineyards, which yield fruits of increase;

38. And he blesseth them, so that they are multiplied greatly; and he suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

39. And they are diminished and brought low, through oppression, adversity, and sorrow:

40. He poureth contempt upon nobles, and causeth them to wander in a pathless waste;

41. But he secureth the needy one on high from affliction, and maketh {him} families like flocks.

42. The upright shall see it, and rejoice; and all unrighteousness shall stop its mouth.

43. Whoso is wise, let him observe these things, and let them understand the loving-kindnesses of Jehovah.

1. [A Song, a Psalm of David.] My heart is fixed, O God: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms, even {with} my glory.

2. Awake, lute and harp: I will wake the dawn.

3. I will give thee thanks among the peoples, O Jehovah; of thee will I sing psalms among the nations:

4. For thy loving-kindness is great above the heavens, and thy truth is unto the clouds.

5. Be thou exalted above the heavens, O God, and thy glory above all the earth.

6. That thy beloved ones may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.

7. God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

8. Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver;

9. Moab is my wash-pot; upon Edom will I cast my sandal; over Philistia will I shout aloud.

10. Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me unto Edom?

11. {Wilt} not {thou}, O God, who didst cast us off? and didst not go forth, O God, with our armies?

12. Give us help from trouble; for vain is man's deliverance.

13. Through God we shall do valiantly; and he it is that will tread down our adversaries.

1. [To the chief Musician. Of David. A Psalm.] O God of my praise, be not silent:

2. For the mouth of the wicked {man} and the mouth of deceit are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue,

3. And with words of hatred have they encompassed me; and they fight against me without a cause.

4. For my love they are mine adversaries; but I {give myself unto} prayer.

5. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

6. Set a wicked {man} over him, and let {the} adversary stand at his right hand;

7. When he shall be judged, let him go out guilty, and let his prayer become sin;

8. Let his days be few, let another take his office;

9. Let his sons be fatherless, and his wife a widow;

10. Let his sons be vagabonds and beg, and let them seek {their bread} far from their desolate places;

11. Let the usurer cast the net over all that he hath, and let strangers despoil his labour;

12. Let there be none to extend kindness unto him, neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children;

13. Let his posterity be cut off; in the generation following let their name be blotted out:

14. Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah, and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out;

15. Let them be before Jehovah continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth:

16. Because he remembered not to shew kindness, but persecuted the afflicted and needy man, and the broken in heart, to slay him.

17. And he loved cursing; so let it come unto him. And he delighted not in blessing; and let it be far from him.

18. And he clothed himself with cursing like his vestment; so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones;

19. Let it be unto him as a garment with which he covereth himself, and for a girdle wherewith he is constantly girded.

20. Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

21. But do *thou* for me, Jehovah, Lord, for thy name's sake; because thy loving-kindness is good, deliver me:

22. For I am afflicted and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.

23. I am gone like a shadow when it lengtheneth; I am tossed about like the locust;

24. My knees are failing through fasting, and my flesh hath lost its fatness;

25. And I am become a reproach unto them; {when} they look upon me they shake their heads.

26. Help me, Jehovah my God; save me according to thy loving-kindness:

27. That they may know that this is thy hand; that *thou*, Jehovah, hast done it.

28. Let *them* curse, but bless *thou*; when they rise up, let them be ashamed, and let thy servant rejoice.

29. Let mine adversaries be clothed with confusion, and let them cover themselves with their shame as with a mantle.

30. I will greatly celebrate Jehovah with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.

31. For he standeth at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those that judge his soul.

1. [Psalm of David.] Jehovah said unto my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put thine enemies {as} footstool of thy feet.

2. Jehovah shall send the sceptre of thy might out of Zion: rule in the midst of thine enemies.

3. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in holy splendour: from the womb of the morning {shall come} to thee the dew of thy youth.

4. Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art priest for ever after the order of Melchisedek.

5. The Lord at thy right hand will smite through kings in the day of his anger.

6. He shall judge among the nations; he shall fill {all places} with dead bodies; he shall smite through the head over a great country.

7. He shall drink of the brook in the way; therefore shall he lift up the head.

1. Hallelujah! I will celebrate Jehovah with {my} whole heart, in the council of the upright, and in the assembly.

2. Great are the works of Jehovah; sought out of all that delight in them.

3. His work is majesty and splendour, and his righteousness abideth for ever.

4. He hath made his wonders to be remembered: Jehovah is gracious and merciful.

5. He hath given meat unto them that fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant.

6. He hath shewn his people the power of his works, to give them the heritage of the nations.

7. The works of his hands are truth and judgment; all his precepts are faithful:

8. Maintained for ever and ever, done in truth and uprightness.

9. He sent deliverance unto his people; he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and terrible is his name.

10. The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all they that do {his precepts}: his praise abideth for ever.

1. Hallelujah! Blessed is the man that feareth Jehovah, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

2. His seed shall be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

3. Wealth and riches {shall be} in his house; and his righteousness abideth for ever.

4. Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness; he is gracious, and merciful, and righteous.

5. It is well with the man that is gracious and lendeth; he will sustain his cause in judgment.

6. For he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

7. He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed confiding in Jehovah;

8. His heart is maintained, he is not afraid, until he see {his desire} upon his oppressors.

9. He scattereth abroad, he giveth to the needy; his righteousness abideth for ever: his horn shall be exalted with honour.

10. The wicked {man} shall see {it} and be vexed; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

1. Hallelujah! Praise, ye servants of Jehovah, praise the name of Jehovah.

2. Blessed be the name of Jehovah, from this time forth and for evermore!

3. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, let Jehovah's name be praised.

4. Jehovah is high above all nations, his glory above the heavens.

5. Who is like unto Jehovah our God, who hath placed his dwelling on high;

6. Who humbleth himself to look on the heavens and on the earth?

7. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust; from the dung-hill he lifteth up the needy,

8. To set {him} among nobles, among the nobles of his people.

9. He maketh the barren woman to keep house, {as} a joyful mother of sons. Hallelujah!

1. When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language,

2. Judah was his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.

3. The sea saw it and fled, the Jordan turned back;

4. The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs.

5. What ailed thee, thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou turnedst back?

6. Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams? ye hills, like lambs?

7. Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the +God of Jacob,

8. Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

1. Not unto us, O Jehovah, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth's sake.

2. Wherefore should the nations say, Where then is their God?

3. But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he pleased.

4. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands:

5. They have a mouth, and they speak not; eyes have they, and they see not;

6. They have ears, and they hear not; a nose have they, and they smell not;

7. They have hands, and they handle not; feet have they, and they walk not; they give no sound through their throat.

8. They that make them are like unto them, -every one that confideth in them.

9. O Israel, confide thou in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.

10. House of Aaron, confide in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.

11. Ye that fear Jehovah, confide in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.

12. Jehovah hath been mindful of us: he will bless, he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron;

13. He will bless them that fear Jehovah, both the small and the great.

14. Jehovah will add unto you more, unto you and unto your children.

15. Ye are blessed of Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth.

16. The heavens are the heavens of Jehovah, but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

17. The dead praise not Jah, neither any that go down into silence;

18. But *we* will bless Jah from this time forth and for evermore. Hallelujah!

1. I love Jehovah, for he hath heard my voice {and} my supplications;

2. For he hath inclined his ear unto me, and I will call upon him during {all} my days.

3. The bands of death encompassed me, and the anguish of Sheol took hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow:

4. Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: I beseech thee, Jehovah, deliver my soul.

5. Gracious is Jehovah and righteous; and our God is merciful.

6. Jehovah keepeth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me.

7. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee.

8. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, my feet from falling.

9. I will walk before Jehovah in the land of the living.

2. For his loving-kindness is great toward us, and the truth of Jehovah {endureth} for ever. Hallelujah!

1. Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

2. Oh let Israel say, that his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

3. Oh let the house of Aaron say, that his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

4. Oh let them that fear Jehovah say, that his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

5. I called upon Jah in distress; Jah answered me {and set me} in a large place.

6. Jehovah is for me, I will not fear; what can man do unto me?

7. Jehovah is for me among them that help me; and I shall see {my desire} upon them that hate me.

8. It is better to trust in Jehovah than to put confidence in man;

9. It is better to trust in Jehovah than to put confidence in nobles.

10. All nations encompassed me; but in the name of Jehovah have I destroyed them.

11. They encompassed me, yea, encompassed me; but in the name of Jehovah have I destroyed them.

12. They encompassed me like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of Jehovah have I destroyed them.

13. Thou hast thrust hard at me that I might fall; but Jehovah helped me.

14. My strength and song is Jah, and he is become my salvation.

15. The voice of triumph and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: the right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly;

16. The right hand of Jehovah is exalted, the right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly.

17. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of Jah.

18. Jah hath chastened me sore; but he hath not given me over unto death.

19. Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will enter into them; Jah will I praise.

20. This is the gate of Jehovah: the righteous shall enter therein.

21. I will give thee thanks, for thou hast answered me, and art become my salvation.

22. {The} stone which the builders rejected hath become the head of the corner:

23. This is of Jehovah; it is wonderful in our eyes.

24. This is the day that Jehovah hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

25. Oh save, Jehovah, I beseech thee; Jehovah, I beseech thee, oh send prosperity!

26. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of Jehovah. We have blessed you out of the house of Jehovah.

27. Jehovah is *God, and he hath given us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, -up to the horns of the altar.

28. Thou art my *God, and I will give thee thanks; my God, I will exalt thee.

29. Give ye thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

1. [A Song of degrees.] In my trouble I called unto Jehovah, and he answered me.

2. Jehovah, deliver my soul from the lying lip, from the deceitful tongue.

3. What shall be given unto thee, what shall be added unto thee, thou deceitful tongue?

4. Sharp arrows of a mighty one, with burning coals of broom-wood.

5. Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell among the tents of Kedar!

6. My soul hath long dwelt with them that hate peace.

7. I {am for} peace; but when I speak, *they* {are} for war.

1. [A Song of degrees.] I lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: whence shall my help come?

2. My help {cometh} from Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth.

3. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved; he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

4. Behold, he that keepeth Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

5. Jehovah is thy keeper, Jehovah is thy shade upon thy right hand;

6. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

7. Jehovah will keep thee from all evil; he will keep thy soul.

8. Jehovah will keep thy going out and thy coming in, from henceforth and for evermore.

1. [A Song of degrees. Of David.] I rejoiced when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of Jehovah.

2. Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

3. Jerusalem, which art built as a city that is compact together,

4. Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of Jah, a testimony to Israel, to give thanks unto the name of Jehovah.

5. For there are set thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

6. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

9. Because of the house of Jehovah our God I will seek thy good.

1. [A Song of degrees.] Unto thee do I lift up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

2. Behold, as the eyes of servants {look} unto the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress, so our eyes {are directed} to Jehovah our God, until he be gracious unto us.

3. Be gracious unto us, O Jehovah, be gracious unto us; for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

4. Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, with the contempt of the proud.

1. [A Song of degrees. Of David.] If it had not been Jehovah who was for us-oh let Israel say-

2. If it had not been Jehovah who was for us, when men rose up against us,

3. Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their anger was kindled against us;

4. Then the waters had overwhelmed us, a torrent had gone over our soul;

5. Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

6. Blessed be Jehovah, who gave us not up a prey to their teeth!

7. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we have escaped.

8. Our help is in the name of Jehovah, the maker of heavens and earth.

1. [A Song of degrees.] They that confide in Jehovah are as mount Zion, which cannot be moved; it abideth for ever.

2. Jerusalem! -mountains are round about her, and Jehovah is round about his people, from henceforth and for evermore.

3. For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

4. Do good, O Jehovah, unto the good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.

5. But as for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, Jehovah will lead them forth with the workers of iniquity. Peace be upon Israel!

1. [A Song of degrees.] When Jehovah turned the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

2. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing: then said they among the nations, Jehovah hath done great things for them.

3. Jehovah hath done great things for us; {and} we are joyful.

4. Turn our captivity, O Jehovah, as the streams in the south.

5. They that sow in tears shall reap with rejoicing:

6. He goeth forth and weepeth, bearing seed for scattering; he cometh again with rejoicing, bearing his sheaves.

1. [A Song of degrees. Of Solomon.] Unless Jehovah build the house, in vain do its builders labour in it; unless Jehovah keep the city, the keeper watcheth in vain:

2. It is vain for you to rise up early, to lie down late, to eat the bread of sorrows: so to his beloved one he giveth sleep.

3. Lo, children are an inheritance from Jehovah, {and} the fruit of the womb a reward.

4. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth.

4. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed that feareth Jehovah.

5. Jehovah will bless thee out of Zion; and mayest thou see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life,

6. And see thy children's children. Peace be upon Israel!

1. [A Song of degrees.] Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth-oh let Israel say-

2. Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me.

3. The ploughers ploughed upon my back; they made long their furrows.

4. Jehovah is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

5. Let them be ashamed and turned backward, all that hate Zion;

6. Let them be as the grass upon the house-tops, which withereth before it is plucked up,

7. Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand, nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom;

8. Neither do the passers-by say, The blessing of Jehovah be upon you; we bless you in the name of Jehovah!

1. [A Song of degrees.] Out of the depths do I call upon thee, Jehovah.

2. Lord, hear my voice; let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.

3. If thou, Jah, shouldest mark iniquities, Lord, who shall stand?

4. But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

5. I wait for Jehovah; my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.

6. My soul {waiteth} for the Lord more than the watchers {wait} for the morning, {more than} the watchers for the morning.

7. Let Israel hope in Jehovah, because with Jehovah there is loving-kindness, and with him is plenteous redemption;

8. And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

1. [A Song of degrees. Of David.] Jehovah, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty; neither do I exercise myself in great matters, and in things too wonderful for me.

2. Surely I have restrained and composed my soul, like a weaned child with its mother: my soul within me is as a weaned child.

3. Let Israel hope in Jehovah, from henceforth and for evermore.

1. [A Song of degrees.] Jehovah, remember for David all his affliction;

2. How he swore unto Jehovah, vowed unto the Mighty One of Jacob:

3. I will not come into the tent of my house, I will not go up to the couch of my bed;

4. I will not give sleep to mine eyes, slumber to mine eyelids,

5. Until I find out a place for Jehovah, habitations for the Mighty One of Jacob. ...

6. Behold, we heard of it at Ephratah, we found it in the fields of the wood.

7. Let us go into his habitations, let us worship at his footstool.

8. Arise, Jehovah, into thy rest, thou and the ark of thy strength.

9. Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let thy saints shout for joy.

10. For thy servant David's sake, turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11. Jehovah hath sworn {in} truth unto David; he will not turn from it: Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne;

12. If thy children keep my covenant, and my testimonies which I will teach them, their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne.

13. For Jehovah hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his dwelling:

14. This is my rest for ever; here will I dwell, for I have desired it.

15. I will abundantly bless her provision; I will satisfy her needy ones with bread;

16. And I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

17. There will I cause the horn of David to bud forth; I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

18. His enemies will I clothe with shame; but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

1. [A Song of degrees. Of David.] Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

2. Like the precious oil upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, upon Aaron's beard, that ran down to the hem of his garments;

3. As the dew of Hermon that descendeth on the mountains of Zion; for there hath Jehovah commanded the blessing, life for evermore.

1. [A Song of degrees.] Behold, bless Jehovah, all ye servants of Jehovah, who by night stand in the house of Jehovah.

2. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless Jehovah.

3. Jehovah, the maker of heavens and earth, bless thee out of Zion.

1. Hallelujah! Praise the name of Jehovah; praise, ye servants of Jehovah,

2. Ye that stand in the house of Jehovah, in the courts of the house of our God.

3. Praise ye Jah; for Jehovah is good: sing psalms unto his name; for it is pleasant.

4. For Jah hath chosen Jacob unto himself, Israel for his own possession.

5. For *I* know that Jehovah is great, and our Lord is above all gods.

6. Whatsoever Jehovah pleased, he hath done in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all deeps;

7. Who causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; who maketh lightnings for the rain; who bringeth the wind out of his treasuries:

8. Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast;

9. Who sent signs and miracles into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh and upon all his servants;

10. Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings,

11. Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan;

12. And gave their land for an inheritance, an inheritance unto Israel his people.

13. Thy name, O Jehovah, is for ever; thy memorial, O Jehovah, from generation to generation.

14. For Jehovah will judge his people, and will repent in favour of his servants.

15. The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands:

16. They have a mouth, and they speak not; eyes have they, and they see not;

17. They have ears, and they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouth.

18. They that make them are like unto them, -every one that confideth in them.

19. House of Israel, bless ye Jehovah; house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah;

20. House of Levi, bless ye Jehovah; ye that fear Jehovah, bless Jehovah.

21. Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion, who dwelleth at Jerusalem! Hallelujah!

1. Give ye thanks unto Jehovah, for he is good; for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever:

2. Give thanks unto the God of gods, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

3. Give thanks unto the Lord of lords, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

4. To him who alone doeth great wonders, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever:

5. To him that by understanding made the heavens, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

6. To him that stretched out the earth above the waters, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

7. To him that made great lights, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

8. The sun for rule over the day, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

9. The moon and stars for rule over the night, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever:

10. To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

11. And brought out Israel from among them, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

12. With a powerful hand and with a stretched-out arm, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

13. To him that divided the Red sea into parts, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

14. And made Israel to pass through the midst of it, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

15. And overturned Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

16. To him that led his people through the wilderness, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

17. To him that smote great kings, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

18. And slew famous kings, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

19. Sihon king of the Amorites, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

20. And Og king of Bashan, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

21. And gave their land for an inheritance, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever,

22. An inheritance unto Israel his servant, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever:

23. Who hath remembered us in our low estate, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever;

24. And hath delivered us from our oppressors, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever:

25. Who giveth food to all flesh, for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

26. Give ye thanks unto the *God of the heavens; for his loving-kindness {endureth} for ever.

1. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down; yea, we wept when we remembered Zion.

2. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

3. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that made us wail {required} mirth, {saying,} Sing us {one} of the songs of Zion.

4. How should we sing a song of Jehovah's upon a foreign soil?

5. If I forget thee, Jerusalem, let my right hand forget {its skill};

6. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to my palate: if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

7. Remember, O Jehovah, against the sons of Edom, the day of Jerusalem; who said, Lay {it} bare, Lay {it} bare, down to its foundation!

8. Daughter of Babylon, who art to be laid waste, happy he that rendereth unto thee that which thou hast meted out to us.

9. Happy he that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the rock.

1. [{A Psalm} of David.] I will give thee thanks with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing psalms of thee.

2. I will bow down toward the temple of thy holiness, and celebrate thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth; for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

3. In the day when I called thou answeredst me; thou didst encourage me with strength in my soul.

4. All the kings of the earth shall celebrate thee, Jehovah, when they have heard the words of thy mouth;

5. And they shall sing in the ways of Jehovah, for great is the glory of Jehovah.

6. For Jehovah is high; but he looketh upon the lowly, and the proud he knoweth afar off.

7. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou wilt stretch forth thy hand against the anger of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

8. Jehovah will perfect what concerneth me: thy loving-kindness, O Jehovah, {endureth} for ever; forsake not the works of thine own hands.

1. [To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.] Jehovah, thou hast searched me, and known {me}.

2. *Thou* knowest my down-sitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off;

3. Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways;

4. For there is not yet a word on my tongue, {but} lo, O Jehovah, thou knowest it altogether.

5. Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thy hand upon me.

6. O knowledge too wonderful for me! it is high, I cannot {attain} unto it.

7. Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? and whither flee from thy presence?

8. If I ascend up into the heavens thou art there; or if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, thou {art there};

9. {If} I take the wings of the dawn {and} dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

10. Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

11. And if I say, Surely darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night;

12. Even darkness hideth not from thee, and the night shineth as the day: the darkness is as the light.

13. For thou hast possessed my reins; thou didst cover me in my mother's womb.

14. I will praise thee, for I am fearfully, wonderfully made. Marvellous are thy works; and {that} my soul knoweth right well.

15. My bones were not hidden from thee when I was made in secret, curiously wrought in the lower parts of the earth.

16. Thine eyes did see my unformed substance, and in thy book all {my members} were written; {during many} days were they fashioned, when {as yet} there was none of them.

17. But how precious are thy thoughts unto me, O *God! how great is the sum of them!

18. {If} I would count them, they are more in number than the sand. When I awake, I am still with thee.

19. Oh that thou wouldest slay the wicked, O +God! And ye men of blood, depart from me.

20. For they speak of thee wickedly, they take {thy name} in vain, thine enemies.

21. Do not I hate them, O Jehovah, that hate thee? and do not I loathe them that rise up against thee?

22. I hate them with perfect hatred; I account them mine enemies.

23. Search me, O *God, and know my heart; prove me, and know my thoughts;

24. And see if there be any grievous way in me; and lead me in the way everlasting.

1. [To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.] Free me, O Jehovah, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man:

2. Who devise mischiefs in {their} heart; every day are they banded together for war.

3. They sharpen their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.

4. Keep me, O Jehovah, from the hands of the wicked {man}, preserve me from the violent man, who devise to overthrow my steps.

5. The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the way-side; they have set traps for me. Selah.

6. I have said unto Jehovah, Thou art my *God: give ear, O Jehovah, to the voice of my supplications.

7. Jehovah, the Lord, is the strength of my salvation: thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.

8. Grant not, O Jehovah, the desire of the wicked; further not his device: they would exalt themselves. Selah.

9. {As for} the head of those that encompass me, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.

10. Let burning coals fall on them; let them be cast into the fire; into deep waters, that they rise not up again.

11. Let not the man of {evil} tongue be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the man of violence to {his} ruin.

12. I know that Jehovah will maintain the cause of the afflicted one, the right of the needy.

13. Yea, the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name; the upright shall dwell in thy presence.

1. [A Psalm of David.] Jehovah, I have called upon thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I call unto thee.

2. Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense, the lifting up of my hands as the evening oblation.

3. Set a watch, O Jehovah, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

4. Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise deeds of wickedness with men that are workers of iniquity; and let me not eat of their dainties.

5. Let the righteous smite me, it is kindness; and let him reprove me, it is an excellent oil which my head shall not refuse: for yet my prayer also is {for them} in their calamities.

6. When their judges are thrown down from the rocks, they shall hear my words, for they are sweet.

7. Our bones are scattered at the mouth of Sheol, as when one cutteth and cleaveth {wood} upon the earth.

8. For unto thee, Jehovah, Lord, are mine eyes; in thee do I trust: leave not my soul destitute.

9. Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, and from the traps of the workers of iniquity.

10. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that *I* withal pass over.

1. [An instruction of David; when he was in the cave: a prayer.] I cry unto Jehovah with my voice: with my voice unto Jehovah do I make supplication.

2. I pour out my plaint before him; I shew before him my trouble.

3. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then *thou* knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they hidden a snare for me.

4. Look on the right hand and see; there is no man that knoweth me: refuge hath failed me; no man careth for my soul.

5. I cried unto thee, Jehovah; I said, Thou art my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.

6. Attend unto my cry, for I am brought very low; deliver me from my persecutors, for they are stronger than I.

7. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may celebrate thy name. The righteous shall surround me, because thou dealest bountifully with me.

1. [A Psalm of David.] Jehovah, hear my prayer; give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me, in thy righteousness.

2. And enter not into judgment with thy servant; for in thy sight no man living shall be justified.

3. For the enemy persecuteth my soul: he hath crushed my life down to the earth; he hath made me to dwell in dark places, as those that have been long dead.

4. And my spirit is overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.

5. I remember the days of old: I meditate on all thy doing; I muse on the work of thy hands.

6. I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul, as a parched land, {thirsteth} after thee. Selah.

7. Answer me speedily, O Jehovah; my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, or I shall be like unto them that go down into the pit.

8. Cause me to hear thy loving-kindness in the morning, for in thee do I confide; make me to know the way wherein I should walk, for unto thee do I lift up my soul.

9. Deliver me, O Jehovah, from mine enemies: unto thee do I flee for refuge.

10. Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: let thy good Spirit lead me in a plain country.

11. Revive me, O Jehovah, for thy name's sake; in thy righteousness bring my soul out of trouble;

12. And in thy loving-kindness cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that oppress my soul: for I am thy servant.

1. [{A Psalm} of David.] Blessed be Jehovah my rock, who teacheth my hands to war, my fingers to fight;

2. My mercy and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I trust, who subdueth my people under me!

3. Jehovah, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him, the son of man, that thou takest thought of him?

4. Man is like to vanity; his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

5. Jehovah, bow thy heavens, and come down; touch the mountains, that they smoke;

6. Cast forth lightnings, and scatter them; send forth thine arrows, and discomfit them:

7. Stretch out thy hands from above; rescue me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of aliens,

8. Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9. O God, I will sing a new song unto thee; with the ten-stringed lute will I sing psalms unto thee:

10. Who givest salvation unto kings; who rescuest David thy servant from the hurtful sword.

11. Rescue me, and deliver me from the hand of aliens, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

12. That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; our daughters as corner-columns, sculptured after the fashion of a palace:

13. Our granaries full, affording all manner of store; our sheep bringing forth thousands, ten thousands in our pastures;

14. Our kine laden {with young}; no breaking in and no going forth, and no outcry in our streets.

15. Blessed the people that is in such a case! Blessed the people whose God is Jehovah!

1. [A Psalm of praise. Of David.] I will extol thee, my God, O King, and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

2. Every day will I bless thee, and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

3. Great is Jehovah, and exceedingly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

4. One generation shall laud thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

5. I will speak of the glorious splendour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

6. And they shall tell of the might of thy terrible acts; and thy great deeds will I declare.

7. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

8. Jehovah is gracious and merciful; slow to anger, and of great loving-kindness.

9. Jehovah is good to all; and his tender mercies are over all his works.

10. All thy works shall praise thee, Jehovah, and thy saints shall bless thee.

11. They shall tell of the glory of thy kingdom, and speak of thy power;

12. To make known to the children of men his mighty acts, and the glorious splendour of his kingdom.

13. Thy kingdom is a kingdom of all ages, and thy dominion is throughout all generations.

14. Jehovah upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all that are bowed down.

15. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their food in its season.

16. Thou openest thy hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17. Jehovah is righteous in all his ways, and kind in all his works.

18. Jehovah is nigh unto all that call upon him, unto all that call upon him in truth.

19. He fulfilleth the desire of them that fear him; he heareth their cry, and saveth them.

20. Jehovah keepeth all that love him, and all the wicked will he destroy.

21. My mouth shall speak the praise of Jehovah; and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
