He prayeth against Israel's enemies.

as to ''Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of
Kison :

10 Which perished at En-dor: 'they be-
came as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like ''Oreb, and
like Zeeb : yea, all their princes as ' Zebah,
and as Zalmunna :

12 Who said. Let us take to ourselves the
houses of God in possession.

13 -"O my God, make them like a wheel;
°as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the
flame "setteth the mountains on fire;

15 So persecute them Pwith thy tempest,
and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 iFill their faces with shame; that they
may seek thy name, O Lord.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled
for ever ; yea, let them be put to shame, and
perish :

18 "^That men may kliow that thou, whose
'name alone is JEHOVAH, arif 'the Most
High over all the earth.

PSALM LXXXIV.

1 The prophet, longing for the communion of the sanctu-
ary, 4 sheweth how blessed they are that dwell therein.
8 He prayeth to be restored unto it.

IT To the chief Musician * upon Gittith,
A Paalm II for the sons of Korah.

HOW "^ amiable are thy tabernacles, O
Lord of hosts !

2 ''My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for
the courts of the Lord : my heart and my
flesh crieth out for the living God.

3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house,
and the swallow a nest for herself, where she
may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord
of hosts, my King, and my God.

4 •= Blessed are they that dwell in thy
house : they will be still praising thee. Selah.

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is
in thee; in whose heart are the ways of
them,

6 Who passing through the valley || ^ of
Baca make it a well ; the rain also t fiHeth
the pools.

7 They go ||^from strength to strength,
every one of them in Zion ^appeareth before
God.

8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer:
give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

9 e Behold, O God our shield, and look
upon the face of thine anointed.

10 For a day in thy courts is better than
a thousand. 1 1 had rather be a door-keeper
in the house of my God, than to dwell in the
tents of wickedness.

1 1 For the Lord God is a '' sun and ' shield :
the Lord will give grace and glory; ^no

PSALM LXXXV.

I The psalmist, out of the experience of former mercies,
prayeth for the continuance thereof 8 He pro-
miseth to wait thereon, out of confidence of God's
goodness.

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

LORD, thou hast been 1| favourable unto
thy land : thou hast "^ brought back the
captivity of Jacob.

2 ^Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy
people, thou hast covered all their sin.
Selah.

3 Thou hast taJten away all thy wrath :

II thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness
of thine anger.

4 "Turn us, O God of our salvation, and
cause thine anger toward us to cease.

5 ^ Wilt thou be angry with us for ever ?
wilt thou draw out thine anger to all genera-
tions ?

6 Wilt thou not « revive us again : that
thy people may rejoice in thee ?

7 Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant
us thy salvation.

8 ^I will hear what God the Lord will
speak: for she will speak peace unto his
people, and to his saints : but let them not
••turn again to folly.

9 Surely ' his salvation is nigh them that
fear him; ^that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth are met together ;
' righteousness and peace have kissed each
other.

' 11 "Truth shall spring out of the earth;
and righteousness shall look • down from
heaven.

12 "Yea, the Lord shall give that which
is good ; and ° our land shall yield her in-
crease.

13 P Righteousness shall go before him;
and shall set us in the way of his steps.

PSALM LXXXVL

1 David strengtheneth his prayer by the conscience of his
religion, 5 by the goodness and power of God. 11 He
desireth the continuance of former grace. 14 Com-
plaining of the proud he craveth some token of God's
goodness.

ir II A Prayer of David.

BOW down thine ear, O Lord, hear me :
for I am poor and needy.
2 Preserve my soul ; for I am \\ holy : O
thou my God, save thy servant ^that trusteth
in thee.

known thy faithfulness fto all generations.

2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up

blish in the very heavens.

3 •=! have made a covenant with my cho-
sen, I have ^ sworn unto David my servant,

4 *Thy seed will I establish for ever, and

ders, O Lord : thy faithfulness also in the
congregation ''of the saints.

pared unto the Lord? who among the

Lord?

7 ''God is greatly to be feared in the
assembly of the saints, and to be had in re-

8 O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong
Lord 'like unto thee ? or to thy faithfulness

9 ""Thou rulest the raging of the sea:

18 For II the Lord is our defence; and

One, and saidst, I have laid help upon one

Father, my God, and ' the Rock of my sal-
vation.

with him.

33 "Nevertheless, my loving-kindness twill
I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my

He complaineth of human fragility.

41 All that pass by the way spoil hun: he
is "a reproach to his neighbours.

42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his
adversaries ; thou hast made all his enemies
to rejoice.

43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his
sword, and hast not made him to stand in
the battle.

44 Thou hast made his t glory to cease,
and '"cast his throne down to the ground.

45 The days of his youth hast thou
shortened : thou hast covered him with
shame. Selah.

46 eHow long. Lord, wilt thou hide
thyself for ever? ''shall thy wrath burn like
fire?

47 ' Remember how short my time is :
wherefore hast thou made all men in vain ?

48 ^ What man is he that liveth, and shall
not 'see death? shall he deliver his soul from
the hand of the grave ? Selah.

49 Lord, where are thy former loving-
kindnesses, which thou "swarest unto David
°in thy truth?

50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy
servants; °how I do bear in my bosom the
reproach of all the mighty people ;

51 PWherewith thine enemies have re-
proached, O Lord ; wherewith they have
reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.

52 q Blessed be the Lord for evermore.
Amen, and Amen.

PSALM XC.

1 Moses setting forth God's providence, 3 complaineth
of human fragility, 7 divine chastisements, 10 and
brevity of life. 12 He prayeth for the knowledge and
sensible experience of God's good providence.

1 II A Prayer * of Moses the man of God.

LORD, ^thou hast been our dwelhng-
place t in all generations.

2 ''Before the mountains were brought
forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth
and the world, even from everlasting to
everlasting, thou art God.

3 Thou turnest man to destruction ; and
sayest, "Return, ye children of men.

4 ^For a thousand years in thy sight are
but as yesterday || when it is past, and as a
watch in the night.

5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood ;
*they are as a sleep ; in the morning ^they are
like grass which \\ groweth up.

6 sin the morning it flourisheth, and
groweth up ; in the evening it is cut down,
and withereth.

7 For we are consumed by thine anger,
and by thy wrath are we troubled.

8 '■Thou hast set our iniquities before

thee, our 'secret sins in the light of thy

countenance.

10 t The days of our years are threescore
years and ten ; and if by reason of strength
they he fourscore years, yet is their strength
labour and sorrow ; for it is soon cut off^ and
we fly away.

- 11 Who knoweth the power of thine
anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy
wrath.

12 ■'So teach us to number our days, that
we may t apply our hearts unto wisdom.

13 Return, O Lord, how long ? and let
it 'repent thee concerning thy servants.

14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; ™that
we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

15 Make us glad according to the days
wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years
wherein we have seen evil.

16 Let "thy work appear unto thy ser-
vants, and thy glory unto their children.

17 ° And let the beauty of the Lord our
God be upon us : and p establish thou the
work of our hands upon us ; yea, the work
of our hands establish thou it.

PSALM XCL

1 Thestateof the godly. ^ Their safety. 9 Their habi-
tation. 11 Their servants. 14 Their friend; viith
the effects of them all.

HE ' that dwelleth in the secret place of
the Most High shall t abide ''under
the shadow of the Almighty.

2 •=! will say of the Lord, He is my
refuge and my fortress : my God ; in him
will I trust.

3 Surely ''he shall deliver thee from the
snare of the fowler, and from the noisome
pestilence.

4 "He shall cover thee with his feathers,
and under his wings shalt thou trust : his
truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 fThou shalt not be afraid for the ter-
ror by night ; nor for the arrow that flieth
by day ;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in
darkness ; nor for the destruction that wast-
eth at noon-day.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and
ten thousand at thy right hand ; but it shall
not come nigh thee.

8 Only s with thine eyes shalt thou be-
hold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord which
is '•my refuge, even the Most High, 'thy

habitation; • ,- „ i •
