with my tongue.

4 Lord, ''make me to know mine end,

man for iniquity, tKou makest f his beauty
•J to consume away like a moth : 'surely every
man is vanity. Selah.

12 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.

13 "O spare me, that I may recover
strength, before I go hence, and ^be no
more.

PSALM XL.

1 The benefit of confidence in God. 6 Obedience is the
best sacrifice. 1 1 The sense of David's evils injlameth
his prayer.

IF To the chief Musician, A Psahn of David.

It ''WAITED patiently for the Lord;
and he inchned unto me, and heard my
cry.

2 He brought me up also out of fan hor-
rible pit, out of '' the miry clay, and " set my
feet upon a rock, aiid ^ established my goings.

3 * 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.

4 g Blessed is that man that maketh the
Lord his trust, and ''respecteth not the
proud, nor such as ' turn aside to lies.

5 '' Many, O Lord my God, are thy won-
derful works which thou hast done, ' and thy
thoughts which are to us-ward : || they cannot
be reckoned up in order unto thee : ifl would
declare and speak ofthem,they are more than
can be numbered.

6 ™ Sacrifice and offering thou didst not
desire ; mine ears hast thou t opened : burnt-
offering and sin-offering hast thou not re-
quired.

7 Then said I, Lo, I come : in the volume
of the book it is " written of me,

8 °I delight to do thy will, O my God:
yea, thy law is f p within my heart.

9 il have preached righteousness in the
great congregation: lo, "^I have not refrained
my lips, O Lord, Hhou knowest.

10 'I have not hid thy righteousness
within my heart ; I have declared thy faith-
fulness and thy salvation : I have not con-
cealed thy loving-kindness and thy truth from
the great congregation.

11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies
from me, O Lord: "let thy loving-kindness
and thy truth continually preserve me.

12 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 ffaileth me.

13 ^Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me:
O Lord, make haste to help me.

504



God!s care of the poor.

14 "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.

15 '• Let them be *= desolate for a reward of
their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

16 ^ Let all those that seek thee rejoice
and be glad in thee : let such as love thy
salvation *say continually, The Lord be
magnified.

17 '"But I am poor and needy; yet sthe
Lord thinketh upon me : thou art my help
and my deliverer ; make no tarrying, O my
God.

PSALM XLL

1 GocCs care of the poor. 4 David complainetk of his
enemies' treachery. 10 Hejieeth to Gvd for succour.

IT To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

BLESSED -is he that considereth || the
poor : the Lord will deliver him f in
time of trouble.

2 The Lord will preserve him, and keep
him alive ; and he shall be blessed upon the
earth : ''and Hthou wilt not deliver him unto
the will of his enemies.

3 The Lord will strengthen him upon
the bed of languishing : thou wilt fmake all
his bed in his sickness.

4 I said. Lord, be merciful unto me :
= heal my soul ; for I have sinned against thee.

5 Mine enemies speak evil of me. When
shall he die, and his name perish ?

6 And if he come to see me, he "^speaketh
vanity : his heart gathereth iniquity to itself;
when he goeth abroad, he telleth it.

7 All that hate me whisper together
against mc : against me do they devise f my
hurt.

8 t An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast
unto him : and now that he lieth he shall
rise up no more.

9 *Yea, fniine own familiar friend, in
whom I trusted, ^ which did eat of my bread,
hath t lifted up his heel against me.

10 But thou, O Lord, be merciful unto
me, and raise me up, that I may requite
them.

11 By this I know that thou favourest me,
because mine enemy doth not triumph over
me.

12 And as for me, thou upholdest me in
mine integrity, and s settest me before thy
face for ever.

13 •■ Blessed be the Lord God of Israel
from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen,
and Amen.

David's zeal to serve God.

IT To the chief Musician, ||Maschil, for the
sons of Korah.

AS the hart tpanteth after the water-
brooks, so panteth my soul after thee,

God.

2 "My soul thirsteth for God, for Hhe
living God : when shall I come and appear
before God ?

3 "My tears have been my meat day and
night, while ^they continually say unto me,
Where is thy God ?

4 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 kept holy-day.

5 e Why art thou feast down, O my soul ?
and why art thou disquieted in me? ""hope
thou in God : for I shall yet || praise him
liybr the help of his countenance.

6 O my God, my soul is cast down within
me : therefore will I remember thee from the
land of Jordan, and of the Hermohites, from
II the hill Mizar.

7 ' Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of
thy water-spouts : ■' all thy waves and thy
billows are gone over me.

8 Yet the Lord will ' conunand his loving-
kindness in the day-time, and ™in the night
his song shall he with me, and my prayer
unto the God of my life.

9 I will say unto God my rock. Why hast
thou forgotten me ? "why go I mourning be-
cause of the oppression of the enemy ?

10 As with a || sword in my bones, mine
enemies reproach me ; ° while they say daily
unto me, Where is thy God ?

11 P 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.

PSALM XLIIL

1 David, praying to be restored to the temple, promiseth
to serve God joyfully. 5 He encourageth his soul to
trust in God.

" TUDGEme,0 God, and ''plead my cause
J against an || ungodly nation : O deliver
me t from the deceitful and unjust man.

2 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 ?

3 « O 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 t my exceeding joy : yea, upon
the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.

505



The church complaineth. of her present evils.

5 8 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.

PSALM XLIV.

1 The church, in memory of former favours, 7 complain-
eth of their present evils. 17 Professing her integrity,
24 she fervently prayethfor succour.

IT To the chief Musician for 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 times of old.

2 How ''thou didst drive out the heathen
with thy hand, and plantedst them; how
thou didst afflict the people, and cast them
out.

3 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 counte-
nance, ^ because thou hadst a favour unto
them. „

4 ^ Thou art my King, O God : command
deliverances for Jacob.

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

6 For e I will not trust in my bow, nei-
ther shall my sword save me.

7 But thou hast saved us from our ene-
mies, and hast •'put them to shame that
hated us.

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

9 But ''thou hast cast off, and put us
to shame; and goest not forth with our
armies.

10 Thou makest us to ' turn back from
the enemy: and they which hate us spoil
for themselves.

11 "Thou hast given us flike sheep ap-
pointed for meat; and hast "scattered us
among the heathen.

12 "Thou sellest thy people ffor nought,
and dost not increase thy wealth by their

price.

13 P Thou makest us a reproach to our
neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them
that are round about us.

14 1 Thou makest us a by-word among
the heathen, "-a shaking of the head among

the people. . „ , r

15 My confusion is contmually before me,
and the shame of my face hath covered me,

1 6 For the voice of him that reproacheth
and blasphemeth; 'by reason of the enemy
and avenger.

the swelling thereof. Selah.

4 There is ■'a river, the streams whereof
shall make glad * the city of God, the
holy place of the tabernacles of the Most
High.

5 God is ""in the midst of her ; she shall
not be moved : God shall help her, f and
that right early.

6 sThe heathen raged, the kingdoms were
moved: he uttered his voice, ''the earth
melted.

7 'The Lord of hosts is with us; the
God of Jacob is t our refuge. Selah.

8 ''Come, behold the works of the Lord,
what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9 'He maketh wars to cease unto the end
of the earth; "he breaketh the bow, and
cutteth the spear in sunder; "hebumeth the
chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God :

I will be exalted among the heathen, I will
be exalted in the earth.

God of Jacob is our refuge. Selali.

PSALM XLVIL

The Tuitions are exhorted cheerfully to entertain the
kingdom of Christ.

IT To the chief Musician, A Psalm || for the
sons of Korah.

0» CLAP your hands, all ye people,
shout unto God with the voice of
triumph.

2 For the Lord Most High is ''terrible ;
"he is a great King over all the earth.

3 * He shall subdue the people under us,
and the nations under our feet.

4 He shall choose our * inheritance for
us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved.
Selah.

5 *■ God is gone up with a shout, the Lord
with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises : sing
praises unto our King, sing praises.

7 8 For God is the King of all the earth :
■•sing ye pi*aises ||with imderstanding.

8 ' God reigneth over the heathen : God
sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

9 II The princes of the people are gather-
ed together, ^even the people of the God of
Abraham: 'for the shields of the earth be-
long unto God : he is greatly exalted.

PSALM XLVin.

IT A Song and Psalm || for the sons of Korah.

r\ REAT is the Lord, and greatly to be
\Jf praised "in the city of our God, in the
''mountain of his holiness.

2 " Beautiful for situation, ^ 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 for a
refuge.

4 For lo, 8 the kings were assembled,
they passed by together.

5 They saw tV, and so they marvelled ,
they were troubled, and hasted away.

6 Fear ''took hold upon them there, '^and
pain, as of a woman in travail.

7 Thou ''breakest the ships of Tarshish
'with an east wind.

8 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.
Selah.

9 We have thought of "thy lovmg-kmd-

right hand is full of righteousness.

11 Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daugh-

12 Walk about Zion, and go round about

death.

1 An earnest persuasion to build the faith of resur-
rection, not on worldly power, but on God. 16 Wordly
prosperity is not to be admired.

IT To the chief Musician, A Psalm || for the
sons of Korah.

HEAR this, all ye people ; give ear, all
