Salmos

1. [To the chief Musician. An instruction; of the sons of Korah.] As the hart panteth after the water-brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

2. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living *God: when shall I come and appear before God?

3. My tears have been my bread day and night, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God?

4. These things I remember and have poured out my soul within me: how I passed along with the multitude, how I went on with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, a festive multitude.

5. Why art thou cast down, my soul, and art disquieted in me? hope in God; for I shall yet praise him, {for} the health of his countenance.

6. My God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore do I remember thee from the land of the Jordan, and the Hermons, from mount Mizar.

7. Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy cataracts; all thy breakers and thy billows are gone over me.

8. In the day-time will Jehovah command his loving-kindness, and in the night his song shall be with me, 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?

10. As with a crushing in my bones mine adversaries reproach me, while they say unto me all the day, Where is thy God?

11. Why art thou cast down, 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.

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

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

3. Send out thy light and thy truth: *they* shall lead me, *they* shall bring me to thy holy mount, and unto thy habitations.

4. Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto the *God of the gladness of my joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God, my God.

5. Why art thou cast down, 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.

1. [To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. An instruction.] O God, with our ears have we heard, our fathers have told us, the work thou wroughtest in their days, in the days of old:

2. Thou, by thy hand, didst dispossess the nations, but them thou didst plant; thou didst afflict the peoples, but them didst thou cause to spread out.

3. For not by their own sword did they take possession of the land, neither did their own arm save them; but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst delight in them.

4. Thou thyself 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.

6. For I will not put confidence in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.

7. For thou hast saved us from our adversaries, and hast put them to shame that hate us.

8. In God will we boast all the day, and we will praise thy name for ever. Selah.

9. But thou hast cast off, and put us to confusion, and dost not go forth with our armies;

10. Thou hast made us to turn back from the adversary, and they that hate us spoil for themselves;

11. Thou hast given us over like sheep {appointed} for meat, and hast scattered us among the nations;

12. Thou hast sold thy people for nought, and hast not increased {thy wealth} by their price;

13. Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a mockery and a derision for 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 my confusion is before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,

16. Because of 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 against thy covenant:

18. Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy path;

19. Though thou hast crushed us in the place of jackals, and covered us with the shadow of death.

20. If we had forgotten the name of our God, and stretched out our hands to a strange *god,

21. Would not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

22. But for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are reckoned as sheep for slaughter.

23. Awake, why sleepest thou, 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 belly cleaveth unto the earth.

26. Rise up for our help, and redeem us for thy loving-kindness' sake.

1. [To the chief Musician. Upon Shoshannim. Of the sons of Korah. An instruction; -a song of the Beloved.] My heart is welling forth {with} a good matter: I say what I have composed touching the king. My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

2. Thou art fairer than the sons of men; grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

3. Gird thy sword upon {thy} thigh, O mighty one, {in} thy majesty and thy splendour;

4. And {in} thy splendour ride prosperously, because of truth and meekness {and} righteousness: and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

5. Thine arrows are sharp-peoples fall under thee-in the heart of the king's enemies.

6. Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; a sceptre of uprightness is the sceptre of thy kingdom:

7. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy companions.

8. Myrrh and aloes, cassia, are all thy garments; out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad.

9. Kings' daughters are among thine honourable women; upon thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

10. Hearken, daughter, and see, and incline thine ear; and forget thine own people and thy father's house:

11. And the king will desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord, and worship thou him.

12. And the daughter of Tyre with a gift, the rich ones among the people, shall court thy favour.

13. All glorious is the king's daughter within; her clothing is of wrought gold:

14. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of embroidery; the virgins behind her, her companions, shall be brought in unto thee:

15. With joy and gladness shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king's palace.

16. Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons; princes shalt thou make them in all the earth.

17. I will make thy name to be remembered throughout all generations; therefore shall the peoples praise thee for ever and ever.

1. [To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. On Alamoth. A song.] God is our refuge and strength, a help in distresses, very readily found.

2. Therefore will we not fear though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the heart of the seas;

3. Though the waters thereof roar {and} foam, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4. There is a river the streams whereof make glad the city of God, the sanctuary of the habitations of the Most High.

5. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her at the dawn of the morning.

6. The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7. Jehovah of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high fortress. Selah.

8. Come, behold the works of Jehovah, what desolations he hath made in the earth:

9. He hath made wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariots in the fire.

10. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

11. Jehovah of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our high fortress. Selah.

1. [To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.] All ye peoples, clap your hands; shout unto God with the voice of triumph!

2. For Jehovah, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth.

3. He subdueth the peoples under us, and the nations under our feet.

4. He hath chosen our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5. God is gone up amid shouting, Jehovah amid the sound of the trumpet.

6. Sing psalms of God, sing psalms; sing psalms unto our King, sing psalms!

7. For God is the King of all the earth; sing psalms with understanding.

8. God reigneth over the nations; God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

9. The willing-hearted of the peoples have gathered together, {with} the people of the God of Abraham. For unto God {belong} the shields of the earth: he is greatly exalted.

1. [A Song; a Psalm. Of the sons of Korah.] Great is Jehovah, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the hill of his holiness.

2. Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, {on} the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

3. God is known in her palaces as a high fortress.

4. For behold, the kings assembled themselves, they passed by together;

5. They saw, -so they marvelled; they were troubled, they fled in consternation:

6. Trembling took hold upon them there; anguish, as of a woman in travail.

7. With an east wind thou hast broken the ships of Tarshish.

8. As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of Jehovah of hosts, in the city of our God: God doth establish it for ever. Selah.

9. We have thought, O God, of thy loving-kindness, in the midst of thy temple.

10. According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.

11. Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.

12. Walk about Zion, and go round about her: count the towers thereof;

13. Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces: that ye may tell it to the generation following.

14. For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide until death.

1. [To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.] Hear this, all ye peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world:

2. Both men of low and men of high degree, rich and poor alike.

3. My mouth shall speak wisdom, and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding:

4. I will incline mine ear to a parable, I will open my riddle upon the harp.

5. Wherefore should I fear in the days of adversity, {when} the iniquity of my supplanters encompasseth me? -

6. They depend upon their wealth, and boast themselves in the abundance of their riches. ...

7. None can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him,

8. (For the redemption of their soul is costly, and must be given up for ever,)

9. That he should still live perpetually, {and} not see corruption.

10. For he seeth that wise men die; all alike, the fool and the brutish perish, and they leave their wealth to others.

11. Their inward thought is, that their houses are for ever, their dwelling-places from generation to generation: they call the lands after their own names.

12. Nevertheless, man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

13. This their way is their folly, yet they that come after them delight in their sayings. Selah.

14. Like sheep are they laid in Sheol: Death feedeth on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their comeliness shall be for Sheol to consume, that there be no habitation for them.

15. But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol: for he will receive me. Selah.

16. Be not afraid when a man becometh rich, when the glory of his house is increased:

17. For when he dieth, he shall carry nothing away; his glory shall not descend after him.

18. Though he blessed his soul in his lifetime, -and men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself, -

19. It shall go to the generation of his fathers: they shall never see light.

20. Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

1. [A Psalm. Of Asaph.] *God, Elohim-Jehovah, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.

2. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined forth.

3. Our God will come, and will not keep silence: fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.

4. He will call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people:

5. Gather unto me my godly ones, those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice!

6. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness; for God executeth judgment himself. Selah.

7. Hear, my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify unto thee: I am God, thy God.

8. I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices, or thy burnt-offerings, continually before me;

9. I will take no bullock out of thy house, {nor} he-goats out of thy folds:

10. For every beast of the forest is mine, the cattle upon a thousand hills;

11. I know all the fowl of the mountains, and the roaming creatures of the field are mine:

12. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee; for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

13. Should I eat the flesh of bulls, and drink the blood of goats?

14. Offer unto God thanksgiving, and perform thy vows unto the Most High;

15. And call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

16. But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant into thy mouth,

17. Seeing thou hast hated correction and hast cast my words behind thee?

18. When thou sawest a thief, thou didst take pleasure in him, and thy portion was with adulterers;

19. Thou lettest thy mouth loose to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit;

20. Thou sittest {and} speakest against thy brother, thou revilest thine own mother's son:

21. These {things} hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether 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 in pieces, and there be no deliverer.

23. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me; and to him that ordereth {his} way will I shew the salvation of God.

1. [To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David; when Nathan the prophet came to him, after he had gone in to Bath-sheba.] Be gracious unto me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness; according to the abundance of thy tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.

2. Wash me fully from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is continually before me.

4. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done what is evil in thy sight; that thou mayest be justified when thou speakest, be clear when thou judgest.

5. Behold, in iniquity was I brought forth, and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6. Behold, thou wilt have truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden {part} thou wilt make me to know wisdom.

7. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8. Make me to hear gladness and joy; {that} the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

11. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not the spirit of thy holiness from me.

12. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and let a willing spirit sustain me.

13. I will teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners shall return unto thee.

14. Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15. Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare thy praise.

16. For thou desirest not 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 a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.

19. Then shalt thou have sacrifices of righteousness, burnt-offering, and whole burnt-offering; then shall they offer up bullocks upon thine altar.

1. [To the chief Musician: an instruction. Of David; when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David came to the house of Ahimelech.] Why boastest thou thyself in evil, thou mighty man? The loving-kindness of *God {abideth} continually.

2. Thy tongue deviseth mischievous things, like a sharp razor, practising deceit.

3. Thou hast loved evil rather than good, lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

4. Thou hast loved all devouring words, O deceitful tongue!

5. *God shall likewise destroy thee for ever; he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of {thy} tent, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.

6. The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him, {saying,}

7. Behold the man that made not God his strength, but put confidence in the abundance of his riches, {and} strengthened himself in his avarice.

8. But as for me, I am like a green olive-tree in the house of God: I will confide in the loving-kindness of God for ever and ever.

9. I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done {it}; and I will wait on thy name, before thy godly ones, for it is good.

1. [To the chief Musician. On Mahalath: an instruction. Of David.] The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God! They have corrupted themselves, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

2. God looked down from the heavens upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

3. Every one of them is gone back, they are together become corrupt: there is none that doeth good, not even one.

4. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge, eating up my people {as} they eat bread? they call not upon God.

5. There were they in great fear, where no fear was; for God scattereth the bones of him that encampeth against thee. Thou hast put {them} to shame, for God hath despised them.

6. Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God turneth again the captivity of his people, Jacob shall be glad, Israel shall rejoice.

1. [To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments: an instruction. Of David; when the Ziphites came, and said to Saul, Is not David hiding himself with us?] O God, by thy name save me, and by thy strength do me justice.

2. O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.

3. For strangers are risen up against me, and the violent seek after my life: they have not set God before them. Selah.

4. Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is among them that uphold my soul.

5. He will requite evil to mine enemies: in thy truth cut them off.

6. I will freely sacrifice unto thee; I will praise thy name, O Jehovah, because it is good.

7. For he hath delivered me out of all trouble; and mine eye hath seen {its desire} upon mine enemies.

1. [To the chief Musician. On stringed instruments: an instruction. Of David.] Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

2. Attend unto me, and answer me: I wander about in my plaint, and I moan aloud,

3. Because of the voice of the enemy; because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in anger they persecute me.

4. My heart is writhing within me, and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

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

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

7. Behold, I would flee afar off, I would lodge in the wilderness; Selah;

8. I would hasten my escape from the stormy wind, from the tempest.

9. Swallow {them} up, Lord; 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; and iniquity and mischief are in the midst of it.

11. Perversities are in the midst thereof; and oppression and deceit depart not from its streets.

12. For it is not an enemy that hath reproached me-then could I have borne it; neither is it he that hateth me that hath magnified {himself} against me-then would I have hidden myself from him;

13. But it was thou, a man mine equal, mine intimate, my familiar friend. ...

14. We who held sweet intercourse together. To the house of God we walked amid the throng.

15. Let death seize upon them, let them go down alive into Sheol. For wickedness is in their dwellings, in their midst.

16. As for me, unto God will I call; and Jehovah will save me.

17. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray and moan aloud; and he will hear my voice.

18. He hath redeemed my soul in peace from the battle against me: for there were many about me.

19. *God will hear, and afflict them: he that is seated of old, (Selah) ...because there is no change in them, and they fear not God.

20. He hath put forth his hands against such as are at peace with him; he hath profaned his covenant.

21. Smooth were the milky {words} of his mouth, but his heart was war; his words were softer than oil, yet are they drawn swords.

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

23. And thou, O God, wilt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days. But as for me, I will confide in thee.

1. [To the chief Musician. On Jonathelem-rechokim. Of David. Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath.] Be gracious unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: all the day long fighting he oppresseth me.

2. Mine enemies would swallow {me} up all the day long; for they are many that fight against me haughtily.

3. In the day that I am afraid, I will confide in thee.

4. In God will I praise his word, in God I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can flesh do unto me?

5. All the day long they wrest my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6. They gather themselves together, they hide themselves; they mark my steps, because they wait for my soul.

7. Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God.

8. *Thou* countest my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

9. Then shall mine enemies return backward in the day when I call: this I know, for God is for me.

10. In God will I praise {his} word; in Jehovah will I praise {his} word.

11. In God have I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can man do unto me?

12. Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thanks unto thee.

13. For thou hast delivered my soul from death; {wilt thou} not {keep} my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

1. [To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam; when he fled from Saul in the cave.] Be gracious unto me, O God, be gracious unto me; for my soul taketh refuge in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings do I take refuge, until the calamities be overpast.

2. I will call unto God, the Most High; unto *God that performeth {all} for me.

3. He will send from the heavens and save me; he hath covered with reproach him that would swallow me up. Selah. God hath sent forth his loving-kindness and his truth.

4. My soul is in the midst of lions; I lie down {among} them that breathe out flames, the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let thy glory be above all the earth!

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

7. My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms.

8. Awake, my glory; awake, lute and harp: I will wake the dawn.

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

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

11. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let thy glory be above all the earth!

1. [To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam.] Is righteousness indeed silent? Do ye speak it? Do ye judge with equity, ye sons of men?

2. Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.

3. The wicked go astray from the womb; they err as soon as they are born, speaking lies.

4. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: {they are} like the deaf adder which stoppeth her ear;

5. Which doth not hearken to the voice of enchanters, of one charming ever so wisely.

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

7. Let them melt away as waters that flow off; when he aimeth his arrows, let them be as blunted:

8. Let them be as a snail that melteth as it passeth away; {like} the untimely birth of a woman, let them not see the sun.

9. Before your pots feel the thorns, green or burning, -they shall be whirled away.

10. The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his footsteps in the blood of the wicked:

11. And men shall say, Verily there is fruit for the righteous; verily there is a God that judgeth in the earth.

1. [To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.] Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God; secure me on high from them that rise up against me.

2. Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from men of blood.

3. For behold, they lie in wait for my soul; strong ones are gathered against me: not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Jehovah.

4. They run and prepare themselves without {my} fault: awake to meet me, and behold.

5. Yea, do thou, Jehovah, the God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations: be not gracious to any plotters of iniquity. Selah.

6. They return in the 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?

8. But thou, Jehovah, wilt laugh at them; thou wilt have all the nations in derision.

9. Their strength! ...I will take heed to thee; for God is my high fortress.

10. God, whose loving-kindness will come to meet me, -God shall let me see {my desire} upon mine enemies.

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

12. {Because of} the sin of their mouth, the word of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride; and because of cursing and lying which they speak.

13. Make an end in wrath, make an end, that they may be no more; that they may know that God ruleth in Jacob, unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

14. And in the evening they shall return, they shall howl like a dog, and go round about the city.

15. They shall wander about for meat, and stay all night if they be not satisfied.

16. But as for me, I will sing of thy strength; yea, I will sing aloud of thy loving-kindness in the morning; for thou hast been to me a high fortress, and a refuge in the day of my trouble.

17. Unto thee, my strength, will I sing psalms; for God is my high fortress, the God of my mercy.

1. [To the chief Musician. On Shushan. Testimony. Michtam of David; to teach: when he strove with the Syrians of Mesopotamia, and the Syrians of Zobah, and Joab returned, and smote the Edomites in the valley of salt, twelve thousand.] O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased: restore us again.

2. Thou hast made the earth to tremble, thou hast rent it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

3. Thou hast shewn thy people hard things; thou hast made us to drink the wine of bewilderment.

4. Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth, (Selah,)

5. That thy beloved ones may be delivered. Save with thy right hand, and answer me.

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

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

8. Moab is my wash-pot; upon Edom will I cast my sandal; Philistia, shout aloud because of me.

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

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

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

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

1. [To the chief Musician. On a stringed instrument. {A Psalm} of David.] Hear, O God, my cry; attend unto my prayer.

2. From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: thou wilt lead me on to a rock which is too high for me.

3. For thou hast been a refuge for me, a strong tower from before the enemy.

4. I will sojourn in thy tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
