God magnifieth and blesseth Job.

11 Then came there unto him 'all his
brethren, and all his sisters, and all they
that had been of his acquaintance beforCj
and did eat bread with him in his house :
and they bemoaned him, and comforted
him over all the evil that the Lord had
brought upon him : every man also gave
him a piece of money, and every one an ear-
ring of gold.

12 So the Lord blessed ™the latter end
of Job more than his beginning : for he had
"fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand
camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a
thousand she-asses.

13 ° He had also seven sons, and three
daughters.

14 And he called the name of the first,
Jemima ; and the name of the second, Ke-
zia; and the name of the third, Keren-
happuch.

15 And in all the land were ho women
found so fair as the daughters of Job : and
their father gave them inheritance among
their brethren.

16 After this p lived Job an hundred and
forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons'
sons, eve7i four generations.

17 So Job died, being old and "5 full of
days.

PSALM L

1 The happiness of the godly. 4 The unhappiness of the
ungodly.

BLESSED "is the man that walketh not
in the counsel of the |1 ungodly, nor
standeth in the way of sinners, ''nor sitteth in
the seat of the scornful.

2 But <= his delight is in the law of the
Lord ; ^and in his law doth he meditate day
and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree « planted by
the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his
fruit in his season ; his leaf also shall not
t wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall
^prosper.

4 The ungodly are not so: but are ?hke
the chaff which the wind driveth away.

5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand
in the judgment, nor sinners in the congre-
gation of the righteous.

6 For 'the Lord knoweth the way of the

1 The Mngdom of Christ. 10 Kings are exhorted to
accept it.

WHY "'do the heathen ||rage, and the
people t imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together, against
the Lord, and against his •'Anointed, saying,

3 "Let us break their bands asunder, and
cast away their cords from us.

4 "^He that sitteth in the heavens <= shall
laugh : the Lord shall have them in deri-
sion.

wrath, and || vex them in his sore displea-
sure.

hath said unto me, eThou art my Son ; this
day have I begotten thee.

8 ■» Ask of me, and I shall give thee the
heathen for thine inheritance, and the
uttermost parts of the earth ybr thy posses-
sion.

9 'Thou shalt break them with a rod of
iron ; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a
potter's vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings : be
instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 "^ Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice

PSALM m.

Tke security of God's protection.

TT A Psalm of David, * when he fled from Ab-
salom his son.

LORD, * how are they increased that
trouble me ? many are they that rise up
against me.

2 Many there he which say of my soul,
" There is no help for him in God. Selah.

3 But thou, O Lord, art " a shield || for
me; my glory, and ^the lifter up of mine
head.

4 I cried unto the Lord with my voice,
and *he heard me out of his ""holy hill.
Selah.

5 s I laid me down and slept ; I awaked ;
for the Lord sustained me.

6 '■ I will not be afraid of ten thousands of
people, that have set themselves against me
round about.

7 Arise, O Lord ; save me, O my God ;
for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon

the cheek bone ; thou hast broken the teeth
of the ungodly.

8 ^ Salvation helongeth unto the Lord :
thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.

PSALM IV.

1 David prayeth for audience. 2 He reproveth and ex-
horieth his enemies. 6 Man's happiness is in God's
favour.

IT To the II chief Musician on Neginoth, A
Psalm of David.

HEAR me when I call, O God of my
righteousness : thou hast enlarged me
when I was in distress ; || have mercy upon
me, and hear my prayer.

2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn
my glory into shame ? how long will ye love
vanity, and seek after leasing ? Selah.

judge me, O Lord, 'according to my right-
eousness, and according to mine integrity

rows against the persecutors.

5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou
hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast "put

7 ''But the Lord shall endure for ever:

people in uprightness.

9 ^The Lord also will be fa refuge for

10 And they that sknow thy name will

gotten: ithe expectation of the poor shall
not perish for ever.

19 Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail:
let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

20 Put them in fear, O Lord: that the
nations may know themselves to be but men.
Selah.

PSALM X.

1 David complaineth to God of the outrage oj the wicked.
12 He prayeth for remedy. IQ He professeth his
confidence.

WHY standest thou afar off, O Lord ?
why hidest thou thyself in times of
trouble ?

2 t The wicked in his pride doth persecute
the poor: "let them be taken in the devices
that they have imagined.

3 For the wicked ''boasteth of his t heart's
desire, and •= || blesseth the covetous; whom the
Lord abhorreth.

4 The wicked, through the pride of his
countenance, ■'will not seek after God: || God
is not in all his * thoughts.

5 His ways are always grievous ; ''thy
judgments are far above out of his sight : as
for all his enemies, she pufFetb at them.

6 ''He hath said in his heart, I shall not
be moved: 'for / shall f never be in adver-
sity.

7 ''His mouth is full of cursing and t de-
ceit and fraud : 'under his tongue is mischief
■"and II vanity.

8 He sitteth in the lurking-places of the
villages : " in the secret places doth he mur-
der the innocent: °his eyes f are privily set
against the poor.

9 P He lieth in wait t secretly as a lion in
his den : he lieth in wait to catch the poor :
he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him
into his net.

10 t He croucheth, and humbleth himself,
that the poor may fall || by his strong ones.

11 He hath said in his heart, God hath
forgotten : ihe hideth his face ; he will never
see it.

12 Arise, O Lord; O God, ■'liftup thine
hand : forget not the || humble.

13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn
God ? he hath said in his heart, thou wilt
not require it.

14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest
mischief and spite, to requite it with thy
hand: the poor f ^committeth himself unto
thee ; Hhou art the helper of the fatherless.

15 "Break thou the arm of the wicked
and the evil man: seek out his wickedness
till thou find none.

16 »The Lord is King for ever and ever:
the heathen are perished out of his land.

17 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of

David encourageth himself in God.

the humble : thou wilt || y prepare their heart,
thou wilt cause thine ear to hear :

18 To ^ judge the fatherless and the op-
pressed, that the man of the earth may no
more || oppress.

PSALM XL

I David encourageth himself in God against his enemies.

4 The providence and justice of God.
1[ To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

IN the Lord put I my trust : ''how say ye
to my soul, Flee as a bird to your moun-
tain?

2 For lo, nhe wicked bend their bow,
^ they make ready their arrow upon the string,
that they may t privily shoot at the upright
in heart.

3 *If the foundations be destroyed, what
can the righteous do ?

4 *"The Lord is in his holy temple, the
Lord's e throne is in heaven : ''his eyes be-
hold, his eyelids try the children of men.

5 The Lord 'trieth the righteous: but
the wicked and him that loveth violence his
soul hateth.

6 ''Upon the wicked he shall rain \\ snares,
fire and brimstone,and||anhorrible tempest:
Hhis shall be the portion of their cup.

7 For the righteous Lord "loveth right-
eousness; "his countenance doth behold the
upright.

PSALM XIL

1 David, destitute of human comfort, craveth help of God.
3 He comforteth himself with God's judgments on the
wicked, and confidence in God's tried promises.

If To the chief Musician || *upon Sheminith,
A Psalm of David.

HELP, II Lord; for "the godly man
ceaseth; for the faithful fail from
among the children of men.

2 "'They speak vanity every one with his
neighbour: "with flattering lips and with fa
double heart do they speak.

3 The Lord shall cut off" all flattering
lips, and the tongue that speaketh ''t proud
things :

4 Who have said. With our tongue will
we prevail; our lips -\are our own: who is
lord over us?

5 For the oppression of the poor, for the
sighing of the needy, "now will I arise, saith
the Lord ; I will set him in safety from him
that llfpuffeth at him.

6 The words of the Lord are epure
words : as silver tried in a furnace of earth,
purified seven times.

7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou
Shalt preserve t them from this generation
for ever.
