PSALM LX.

1 DavidyComplaining to God of former judgment, i now,
upon better hope, prayeth for deliverance. 6 Comfort-
ing himself in God's promises, he craveih that help
whereon he trusteth.

IT To the chief Musician * upon Shushan-
eduth, II Michtam of David, to teach ;
* when he strove with Aram-naharaim
and with Aram-zobah, when Joab return-
ed, and smote of Edom in the valley of
salt twelve thousand.

OGOD, *thou hast cast us off, thou hast
t scattered us, thou hast been displeas-
ed ; O turn thyself to us again.

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

3 " Thou hast shewed thy people hard
things: ''thou hast made us to drink the
wine of astonishment.

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 may be delivered:
save with thy right hand, and hear mc.

6 God hath s spoken in his holiness ; I will
rejoice, I will '^divide 'Shechem, and mete
out ''the valley of Succoth.

7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine ;
'Ephraim also is the strength of mine head ;
■" Judah is my lawgiver;

8°Moab is my washpot; "over Edom will
I cast out my shoe : pPhilistia, || triumph thou
because of me.

512



David fleeth to God in prayer.

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

10 Wilt not thou, O God, which ihadst
cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst
'not go out with our armies ?

11 Give us help from trouble : for 'vain is
the t help of man.

12 Through God 'we shall do vaUantly:
for he it is that shall "tread down our enemies.

PSALM LXI.

1 David fleeth to God upon his former experience, 4
He voweth perpetual service unto him, because of his
promises.

IT To the chief Musician upon Neginah,
A Psalm of David.

HEAR my cry, O God; attend unto my
prayer.

2 From the end of the earth will I cry
unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed :
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For thou hast been a shelter for me,
and " a strong tower from the enemy.

4 '•I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever:
■=1 will II trust in the covert of thy wings.
Selah.

5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows :
thou hast given me the heritage of those that
fear thy name.

6 ^t Thou wilt prolong the king's life:
and his years f as many generations.

7 He shall abide before God for ever:

prepare mercy ^and truth, which may pre-
serve him.

8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for
ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

PSALM LXIL

1 David professing his confidence in God, discourageth
his enemies. 5 In the same confidence he encourageth
the godly. 9 No trust is to be put in worldly things.
1 1 Power and mercy belong to God.

IF To the chief Musician, to * Jeduthun,

A Psahn of David.
j| rpRULY "my soul t waiteth upon God:
_|_ from him cometh my salvation.

2 ^He only is my rock and my salvation;
he is my t defence; "I shall not be greatly
moved.

3 How long will ye imagine mischief
against a man? ye shall be slain all of you:
•^ as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tot-
tering fence.

4 They only consult to cast him down
from his excellency: they delight in hes:
'they bless with their mouth, but they curse
f inwardly. Selah.

5 ''My soul, wait thou only upon God;

PSALM LXm.

1 David's thirst for God. ^ His manner of blessing God.
9 His confidence of his enemies' destruction, and his
own safety.

TI A Psalm of David, * when he was in the
wilderness of Judah.

OGOD, thou art my God; early will I
seek thee: "my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and f thirsty
land, t where no water is;

2 To see ''thy power and thy glory, so as
I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

3 "Because thy loving-kindness is better
than life, my lips shall praise thee.

4 Thus will I bless thee ^ while I live:
I will lift up my hands in thy name.

5 My soul shall be " satisfied as with t mar-
row and fatness ; and my mouth shall praise
thee with joyful lips :

6 "When ''I remember thee upon my bed,
and meditate on thee in the night watches.

7 Because thou hast been my help, there-
fore sin the shadow of thy wings will 1
rejoice.

8 My soul followeth hard after thee : thy
right hand upholdeth me.

9 But those that seek my soul to destroy
it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

10 f'They shall fall by the sword; they
shall be a portion for foxes.

11 But the king shall rejoice in God;
'every one that sweareth by him shall glory:
but the mouth o*f them that speak lies shall
be stopped.

PSALM LXIV.

1 David prayeth for deliverance, coviplaining of his
enemies. 7 He promiseth himself to see such an
evident destruction of his enemies, as the righteous
shall rejoice at it.

IF To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
513



David prayeth for deliverance.

HEAR my voice, O God, in my prayer :
preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the
wicked; from the insurrection of the workers
of iniquity :

3 » Who whet their tongue hke a sword,
bflntZbend their bows to shoot their arrows,
even bitter words :

4 That they may shoot in secret at the
perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and
fear not.

5 "They encourage themselves in an evil
II matter : they commune t of laying snares
privily; "^they say. Who shall see them?

6 They search out iniquities ; ] they ac-
complish t a diligent search : both the inward
thought of every one of them, and the heart,
is deep.

7 "But God shall shoot at them with an
arrow; suddenly f shall they be wounded.

8 So they shall make ''their own tongue
to fall upon themselves: sail that see them
shall flee away.

9 ''And all men shall fear, and shall 'de-
clare the work of God ; for they shall wisely
consider of his doing.

10 ''The righteous shall be glad in the
Lord, and shall trust in him; and all the
upright in heart shall glory.

PSALM LXV.

1 David praiseth God for his grace. 4 The blessedness
of God's chosen by reason of benefits.

IT To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song
of David.

PRAISE twaiteth for thee, O God, in
Zion : and unto thee shall the vow be
performed.

2 O thou that hearest prayer, °^unto thee
shall all flesh come.

3 ''t Iniquities prevail against me: as for
our transgressions, thou shalt "= purge them
away.

4 ''Blessed is the man whom thou "choosest,
and causest to approach unto thee, that he
may dwell in thy courts: ""we shall be satis-
fied with the goodness of thy house, even of
thy holy temple.

5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt
thou answer us, O God of our salvation;
who art the confidence of s all the ends of
the earth, and of them that are afar oS upon
the sea:

6 Which by his strength setteth fast the
mountains; ^heing girded with power:

7 'Which stilleth the noise of the seas,
the noise of their waves, ''and the tumult
of the people.

5 ''A father of the fatherless, and a judge
of the widows, is God in his holy habita-
tion.

6 'God setteth the solitary fin families:
''he bringeth out those which are bound
with chains : but 'the rebellious dwell in a
dry land.

7 O God, "when thou wentest forth be-
fore thy people, when thou didst march
through the wilderness ; Selah :

8 °The earth shook, the heavens also
dropped at the presence of God : even Sinai
itself was moved at the presence of God,
the God of Israel.

9 "Thou, O God, didst fsend a plentiful
rain, whereby thou didst f confirm thine
inheritance, when it was weary.

10 Thy congregation hath dwelt therein :
Pthou, O God, hast prepared of thy good-
ness for the poor.

11 The Lord gave the word : great was
the t company of those that published it.

12 1 Kings of armies fdid flee apace:
and she that tarried at home divided the
spoil.

13 "^Though ye have lien among the
pots, ^yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove
covered with silver, and her feathers with
yellow gold.

14 *When the Almighty scattered kings
II in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.

15 The hill of God is as the hill of Ba-
shan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.

16 "Why leap ye, ye high hills ? ^this is
the hill which God desireth to dwell in ;
yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.

17 yThe chariots of God are twenty
thousand, [| even thousands of angels : the
Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the
holy place.

18 ^Thou hast ascended on high, 'thou
hast led captivity captive : ""thou hast re-
ceived gifts t for men ; yea, for "the rebellious
also, "^that the Lord God might dwell among
them.

19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth
ns with benefits, even the God of our salva-
tion. Selah.

20 He that is our God is the God of sal-
vation ; and « unto God the Lord belong
the issues from death.

21 But ^God shall wound the head of
his enemies, sa?id the hairy scalp of such
an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.

•22 The Lord said, I will bring "again
from Bashan; I will bring my people agam
' from the depths of the sea.

An exhortation to praise God.

23 ''That thy foot may be || dipped in the
blood of thine enemies, 'a?id the tongue of
thy dogs in the same.

24 They have seen thy goings, O God;
even the goings of my God, my King, in
the sanctuary.

25 ■" The singers went before, the players
on instruments /oZ/owec^ after; among them
were the damsels playing with timbrels.

26 Bless ye God in the congregations,
even the Lord, |1 from " the fountain of Is-
rael.

27 There is ° little Benjamin with their
ruler, the princes of Judah \\and their
council, the princes of Zebulun, a7id the
princes of Naplrtali.

28 Thy God hath p commanded thy
strength : strengthen, O God, that which
thou hast wrought for us.

29 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem
1 shall kings bring presents unto thee.

30 Rebuke |1 the company of speai'-men,
■■ the multitude of the bulls, with the calves
of the people, till every one ' submit himself
with pieces of silver : || scatter thou the peo-
ple that delight in war.

31 *Princes shall come out of Egypt;
"Ethiopia shall soon ^stretch out her hands
unto God.

32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the
earth ; O sing praises unto the Lord ; Selah :

33 To him ythat rideth upon the heavens
of heavens, which were of old; lo, ^he doth
t send out his voice, and that a mighty
voice.

34 ^ Ascribe ye strength unto God : his
excellency is over Israel, and his strength is
in the || clouds,

35 O God, •* thou art terrible out of thy
holy places : the God of Israel is he that
giveth strength and power unto his people.
Blessed le God.

PSALM LXIX.

I David co7nplaineth of his affliction. 13 He prayeth
for deliverance. 22 He devoteth his enemies to de-
struction. 30 He praiseth God with thanksgiving.
