2 ''I sink in tdeep mire, where there is
no standing : I am come into tdeep waters,
where the floods overflow me.

3 <= I am weary of my crying : my throat
is dried: ^mine eyes fail while I wait for
my God.

4 They that <=hate me without a cause
are more than the hairs of mine head: they I
that would destroy me, being mine enemies!

David complaineth of his affliction.

wrongfully, are mighty : then I restored that
which I took not away.

5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness ;
and my f sins are not hid from thee.

6 Let not them that wait on thee, O
Lord God of hosts, be ashamed for my sake :
let not those that seek thee be confounded
for my sake, O God of Israel.

7 Because for thy sake I have borne re-
proach : shame hath covered my face.

8 *'I am become a stranger unto my
brethren, and an alien unto my mother's
children.

9 sFor the zeal of thine house hath eaten
me up ; ''and the reproaches of them that
reproached thee are fallen upon me.

10 ' When I wept, and chastened my soul
with fasting, that was to my reproach.

11 I made sackcloth also my garment;
■'and I became a proverb to them.

12 They that sit in the gate speak against
me ; and 'I was the song of the f drunkards.

13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee,

Lord, "m an acceptable time : O God,
in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in
the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let
me not sink : " let me be delivered from
them that hate me, and out of °the deep
waters.

15 Let not the water-flood overflow me,
neither let the deep swallow me up, and
let not the pit Pshut her mouth upon me.

16 Hear me, O Lord; ifor thy loving-
kindness is good: 'turn unto me according
to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

17 And 'hide not thy face from thy
servant; for I am in trouble: t hear me
speedily.

18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem
it : deliver me because of mine enemies.

19 Thou hast known 'my reproach, and
my shame, and my dishonour : mine adver-
saries are all before thee.

20 Reproach hath broken my heart ; and

1 am full of heaviness : and "I looked for
some fto take pity, but there was none; and
for "comforters, but I found none.

21 They gave me also gall for my meat ;
y and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to
drink.

22 ^Let their table become a snare before
them : and that which should have been for
their welfare, let it become a trap.

23 "Let their eyes bo darkened, that they
see not ; and make their loins continually
to shake.

24 '■Pour out thine indignation upon
them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold
of them.

516



He devoteth his enemies to destruction.

25 "Let t their habitation be desolate;
and t let none dwell in their tents.

26 For ^they persecute "Jiim whom thou
hast smitten ; and they talk to the, grief of
t those whom thou hast wounded.

27 ''Add II iniquity unto their iniquity:
?and let them not come into thy righteous-
ness,

28 Let them ""be blotted out of the book
of the living, 'and not be written with the
righteous.

29 But I am poor and sorrowful : let thy
salvation, O God, set me up on high.

30 ■=! will praise the name of God with a
song, and will magnify him with thanks-
giving.

31 ^This also shall please the Lord bet-
ter than an ox or bullock that hath horns
and hoofs.

32 ""The II humble shall see this, and be
glad : and ° your heart shall live that seek
God.

33 For the Lord heareth the poor, and
despiseth not °his prisoners.

34 PLet the heaven and earth praise him,
the seas, land every thing that f nioveth
therein.

35 'For God will save Zion, and will
build the cities of Judah: that they may
dwell there, and have it in possession.

36 °The seed also of his servants shall
inherit it: and they that love his name
shall dwell therein.

David imploreth God's help.

IN "thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let
me never be put to confusion.

2 ''Deliver me in thy righteousness, and
cause me to escape: "incline thine ear unto
me, and save me.

3 ''t Be thou my strong habitation, wherc-
unto I may continually resort: thou hast
given « commandment to save me ; for thou
art my rock and my fortress.

4 *■ Deliver me, O my God, out of the
hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the
unrighteous and cruel man.

5 For thou art 8my hope, O Lord God :
thou art my trust from my youth.

6 '' By thee have I been holden up from
the womb: thou art he that took me out
of my mother's bowels : my praise shall be
continually of thee.

7 'I am as, a wonder unto many; but thou
art my strong refuge.

8 Let ''my mouth be filled with thy praise
and with thy honour all the day.

9 'Cast me not oflT in the time of old
age ; forsake me not when my strength
faileth.

10 For mine enemies speak against me ;
and they that f lay wait for my soul ""take
counsel together,

11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: per-
secute and take him ; for there is none to
deliver him.

12 "O God, be not far from me: O my
God, " make haste for my help.

13 pLet them be confounded and con-
sumed that are adversaries to my soul ; let
them be covered with reproach and dis-
honour that seek my hurt.

14 But I will hope continually, and will
yet praise thee more and more.

15 1 My mouth shall shew forth thy right-
eousness and thy salvation all the day ; for
'I know not the numbers thereof.

16 I will go in the strength of the Lord
God: I will make mention of thy right-
eousness, even of thine only.

17 O God, thou hast taught me from my
youth : and hitherto have I declared thy
wondrous works.

18 «Now also t when I am old and gray-
headed, O God, forsake me not; until I
have shewed t thy strength unto this gene-
ration, and thy power to every one that is
to come.

19 *Thy righteousness also, O God, is
very high, who hast done great things:
"O God, who is like unto thee?

20 ^ Thou, which hast shewed me great
and sore troubles, yshalt quicken me again,
and Shalt bring me up again from the



depths of the earth.

David's prayer for Solomon.

21 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and
comfort me on every side.

22 I will also praise thee t "^with the psal-
tery, even thy truth, O my God : unto thee
will I sing with the harp, O thou 'Holy
One of Israel.

23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I
sing unto thee ; and ""my soul, which thou
hast redeemed.

24 "^My tongue also shall talk of thy
righteousness all the day long: for "^they are
confounded, for they are brought unto shame,
that seek my hurt.

PSALM LXXII.

1 Bavid, praying for Solomon, sheweth the goodness
and glory of his, in type, and in truth, of Christ's
kingdom. 18 He blesseth God.

IF A Psalm 11 * for Solomon.

GIVE the king thy judgments, O God,
and thy righteousness unto the king's
son.

2 "^ He shall judge thy people with right-
eousness, and thy poor with judgment.

3 •• The mountains shall bring peace to
the people, and the little hills, by right-
eousness.

4 "He shall judge the poor of the people,
he shall save the children of the needy, and
shall break in pieces the oppressor.

5 They shall fear thee ^ as long as
sun and moon endure, throughout all
nerations.

6 *He shall come down like rain upon
the mown grass : as showers that water the
earth.

7 In his days shall the righteous flourish :
''and abundance of peace f so long as the
moon endureth.

8 e He shall have dominion also from sea
to sea, and from the river unto the ends of
the earth.

9 i-They that dwell in the wilderness
shall bow before him ; 'and his enemies shall
lick the dust.

10 ^ The kings of Tarshish and of the
isles shall bring presents : the kings of
Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

11 'Yea, all kings shall fall down before
him : all nations shall serve him.

12 For he "shall deliver the needy when
he crieth ; the poor also, and him that hath
no helper.

13 He shall spare the poor and needy,
and shall save the souls of the needy.

14 He shall redeem their soul from de-
ceit and violence : and "precious shall their
blood be in his sight.

15 And he shall live, and to him f shall
be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also

PSALM LXXm.

1 The prophet, prevailing in a temptation, 2 sheweth the
occasion thereof, the prosperity of the wicked, 13 the
wound given thereby, diffidence. 15 The victory over
it, knowledge of God's purpose in destroying of the
wicked, and sustaining the righteous.

IT II A Psalm of * Asaph.

TRULY II God is good to Israel, even to
such as are f of a clean heart.

2 But as for me, my feet were almost
gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

3 ''For I was envious at the ioolish., when
I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4 For there are no bands in their death :
but their strength is f firm.

5 ""They are not t in trouble as other
men ; neither are they plagued t like other
men.

6 Therefore pride compasseth them about
as a chain; violence covereth them ''as a
garment.

7 ''Their eyes stand out with fatness:
t they have more than heart could wish.

8 *They are corrupt, and ^ speak wickedly
concerning oppression: they ^ speak loftily.

9 They set their mouth ''against the
heavens, and their tongue walketh through
the earth.

10 Therefore his people return hither : ' and
waters of a full cup are wi-ung out to them.

11 And they say, ''How doth God know?
and is there knowledge in the Most High ?

12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who
' prosper in the world ; they increase in
riches.

13 •" Verily I have cleansed my heart in
vain, and "washed my hands in innocency.

14 For all the day long have I been
plagued, and t chastened every morning.

15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I
should offend against the generation of* thy
children.

518



Their fearful end.

16 °When I thought to know this, fit
was too painful for me ;

17 Until pI went into the sanctuary of
God ; then understood 1 1 their end.

18 Surely 'thou didst set them in slippery
places : thou castedst them down into de-
struction.

19 How are i\vey brought into desolation,
as in a moment ! they are utterly consumed
with terrors.

20 -As a dream when one awaketh ; so,

Lord, *when thou awakest, thou shalt
despise their image.

21 Thus my heart was "grieved, and I was
pricked in my reins.

22 * So foolish was I, and t ignorant ; I
was a^ a beast f before thee.

23 Nevertheless I am continually with
thee: thou hast holden me by my right
hand.

24 yThou shalt guide me with thy counsel,
and afterward receive me to glory.

25 ^Whom have I in heaven hut thee?
and there is none upon earth that I desire
besides thee.

26 * My flesh and my heart faileth : hut
God is the f strength of my heart, and '• my
portion for ever.

27 For lo, "they that are far from thee
shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them
that ^go a whoring from thee.

28 But it is good for me to «draw near to
God : I have put my trust in the Lord God,
that I may ''declare all thy works.

PSALM LXXIV.

1 TAe prophet complaineth of the desolation of the sanc-
tiiary, 10 He moveth God to help in consideration of
his power, 18 of his reproachful enemies, of his chil-
dren, and of his covenant.

TT II Maschil of Asaph.

OGOD, why hast thou 'cast us off for
ever? why doth thine anger '•smoke
against "the shee.p of thy pasture?

2 Remember thy congregation, ^ which
thou hast purchased of old ; the || "rod of
thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed;
this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.

3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual de-
solations ; even all that the enemy hath done
wickedly in the sanctuary.

4 ^ Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy
congregations; sthey set up their ensigns/or
signs.

5 A man was famous according as he had
lifted up axes upon the thick trees.

6 But now they break down ""the carved
work thereof at once with axes and ham-
mers.

7 ' t They have cast fire into thy sanctuary.

David prayeth for the sanctuary.

they have defiled ^hy casting down the dwell-
ing-place of thy name to the ground.

8 'They said m their hearts. Let us t de-
stroy them together: they have burned up all
the synagogues of God in the land.*

9 We see not our signs : ■" there is no
more any prophet : neither is there among us
any that knoweth how long.

10 O God, how long shall the adversary
reproach ? shall the enemy blaspheme thy
name for ever ?

11 ^'Why withdrawest thou thy hand,
even thy right hand ? pluck it out of thy
bosom.

12 For "God is my King of old, working
sanation in the midst of the earth.

13 p Thou didst t divide the sea by thy
strength: ithou brakest the heads of the
II dragons in the waters.

14 Thou brakest the heads of leviathan
in pieces, and gavest him ^to he meat 'to the
people inhabiting the wilderness.

15 'Thou didst cleave the fountain and the
flood : "thou driedst up t mighty rivers.

16 The day is thine, the night also is
thine : ^thou hast prepared the light and the
sun.

17 Thou hast yset all the borders of the
earth: nhou hast t made summer and winter.

18 * Remember this, that the enemy hath
reproached, O Lord, and that ''the foolish
people have blasphemed thy name.

19 O deliver not the soul "of thy turtle-
dove unto the multitude of the wicked : ^for-
get not the congregation of thy poor for ever.

20 "Have respect unto the covenant: for
the dark places of the earth are full of the
habitations of cruelty.

21 O let not the oppressed return ashamed :
let the poor and needy praise thy name.

22 Arise, O God, plead thine own cause :
''remember how the foolish man reproacheth
thee daily.

23 Forget not the voice of thine enemies :
the tumult of those that rise up against thee
t increaseth continually.

PSALM LXXV.

1 The prophet praiseth God. 2 He promiseth to judge
uprightly. 4 He rebuketh the proud by consideration
of God^s providence. 9 He praiseth God, and pro-
miseth to execute justice.

IF To the chief Musician, ||*Al-taschith,
A Psalm or Song || of Asaph.

UNTO thee, O God, do we give thanks,
unto thee do we give thanks : for that
thy name is near, thy wondrous works declare.

2 II When I shall receive the congregation
I will judge uprightly. .

3 The earth and all the inhabitants there-

Selah.

4 1 said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly;
and to the wicked, *Lift not up the horn :'

5 Lift not up your horn on high : speak
not with a stiff neck.

6 For promotion cometh neither from the
east, nor from the west, nor from the
t south.

7 But ^God is. the judge: <=he putteth
down one, and setteth up another.

8 For din the hand of the Lord there is
a cup, and the wine is red ; it is "full of mix-
ture, and he poureth out of the same : ^but
the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth
shall wring them out, and drink them.

9 But I will declare for ever ; I will sing
praises to the God of Jacob.

10 eAll the horns of the wicked also will
I cut off; hut ''the horns of the righteous
shall be exalted.

PSALM LXXVL

1 A declaration of God's majesty in the church. 1 1 An
exhortation to serve him reverently.

IF To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A
Psalm or Song of || Asaph.

IN ^Judah is God known: his name is
great in Israel.

2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his
dwelling-place in Zion.

3 '• There brake he the arrows of the bow,
the shield, and the sword, and the battle.
Selah.

4 Thou art more glorious and excellent
<= than the mountams of prey.

5 ^ The stout-hearted are spoiled, " they
have slept their sleep : and none of the men
of might have found their hands.

6 *'At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both
the chariot and horse are cast into a dead
sleep.

7 Thou, evem thou, art to be feared : and
? who may stand in thy sight when once thou
art angry ?

8 ""Thou didst cause judgment to be
heard from heaven ; ' the earth feared, and
was still,

9 When God ^ arose to judgment, to save
all the meek of the earth. Selah.

10 ' Surely the vn-ath of man shall praise
thee : the remainder of wrath shalt thou
restrain.

1 1 >" Vow, and pay unto the Lord your
God : "let all that be round about him
bring presents t unto him that ought to be
feared.

12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes :
"he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
