PSALM CXXVIL

I The virtue of God's blessing. 3 Good children are
his gift.

IF A Song of degrees ||for Solomon.

EXCEPT the Lord build the house,
they labour in vain t that build it :
except * the Lord keep the city, the watch-
man waketh but in vain.

2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit
up late, to ^'eat the bread of sorrows: for
so he giveth his beloved sleep.

3 Lo, 'children are an heritage of the
Lord : and ^the fruit of the womb is his
reward.

4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty
man ; so are children of the youth.

5 Happy is the man that f hath his quiver

full of them : nhey shall not be ashamed,

but they || shall speak with the enemies in

the gate.

God's goodness in Israel's deliverance.
PSALM CXXVIIl.

The sujidry blessings which follow them that jear God.
IT A Song of degrees.

BLESSED "IS every one that feareth the
Lord ; that walketh in his ways.

2 ''For thou shalt eat the labour of thine
hands : happy shalt thou he, and it shall be
well with thee.

3 Thy wife shall 6e "as a fruitful vine by
the sides of thine house : thy children ^like
olive-plants round about thy table.

4 Behold, that thus shall the man be
blessed that feareth the Lord.

5 *The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion:
and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all
the days of thy life.

6 Yea, thou shalt ^see thy children's chil-
dren, and ^ peace upon Israel.

PSALM CXXIX.

1 An exhortation to praise God for saving Israel in
their great afflictions. 5 The haters of the church are
cursed.

HA Song of degrees.

MANY II a time have they afflicted me
from "my youth, ''may Israel now say:

2 Many a time have they afflicted me
from my youth : yet they have not prevailed
against me.

3 The ploughers ploughed upon my back :
they made long their furrows.

4 The Lord is righteous: he hath cut
asunder the cords of the wicked.

5 Let them all be confounded and turned
back that hate Zion.

6 Let them be as "the grass upon the
house-tops, which withereth afore it groweth
up:

7 Wherewith the mower fiUeth not his
hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.

8 Neither do they which go by, say, ^The
blessing of the Lord he upon you : we bless
you in the name of the Lord.

PSALM CXXX.

1 The psalmist professeth his hope in prayer, 5 and his
patience in hope. 7 He exhortetk Israel to hopo tn
God.

IT A Song of degrees.

OUT "of the depths have I cried unto
thee, O Lord.

2 Lord, hear my voice : let thine ears be
attentive to the voice of my supplications.

3 ''If thou. Lord, shouldest mark iniqui-
ties, O Lord, who shall stand ?

4 But there is "forgiveness with thee, that
^thou mayest be feared.

5 =1 wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait,
and fin his word do I hope.

6 eMv soul waiteth for the Lord more

545



David professeth jfiis humility.

than they that watch for the morning : 11 /
say, more than they that watch for the
morning.

7 hLet Israel hope in the Lord : for 'with
the Lord there is mercy, and with him is
plenteous redemption.

8 And khe shall redeem Israel from all
his iniquities.

PSALM CXXXL

1 David, professing his humility, 3 exhorteth Israel to
hope in God.

IT A Song of degrees of David.

LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor
mine eyes lofty: ''neither do I f exer-
cise myself in great matters, or in things
too thigh for me.

2 Surely I have behaved and quieted t my-
self ''as a child that is weaned of his mother :
my soul is even as a weaned child.

3 <=Let Israel hope in the Lord f from
henceforth and for ever.

PSALM CXXXIL

1 David in his prayer commendeth unto God the reli-
gious care he had for the ark. 8 His prayer at the
removing of the ark, 1 1 with a repetition of God's
promises.

IT A Song of degrees.

LORD, remember David, and all his afflic-
tions :

2 How he sware unto the Lord, '^and
vowed unto ''the mighty God of Jacob;

3 Surely I will not come into the taber-
nacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

4 I will <=not give sleep to mine eyes, or
slumber to mine eyelids,

5 Until I ""find out a place for the Lord,
tan habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

6 Lo, we heard of it "at Ephratah: ''we
found it ein the fields of the wood.

7 We will go into his tabernacles: ""we
will worship at his footstool.

8 'Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou,
and ■'the ark of thy strength.

9 Let thy priests 'be clothed with right-
eousness ; and let thy saints shout for joy.

10 For thy servant David's sake turn not
away the face of thine anointed.

11 ""The Lord hath sworn in truth unto
David; he will not turn from it; "Of the
fruit of t thy body will I set upon thy throne.

12 If thy children will keep my covenant
and my testimony that I shall teach them ;
their children also shall sit upon thy throne
for evermore. •

13 "For the Lord hath chosen Zion ; he
hath desired it for his habitation.

14 pThis is my rest for ever: here will I
dwell : for I have desired it.

PSALM CXXXIIL

The lenefit of the communion of saints

IT A Song of degrees of David.

BEHOLD, how good and how pleasant
it is for "^ brethren to dwell t together
in unity!

2 It is like '' the precious ointment upon
the head, that ran down upon the beard, even
Aaron's beard : that went down to the skirts
of his garments;

3 As the dew of "Hermon, and as the dew
that descended upon the mountains of Zion :
for ''there the Lord commanded the blessing,
even life for evermore.

PSALM CXXXIV-

1 The coiistancy of the Jews in captivity. 7 The prophet
curseth Edom and Babel.

BY the rivers of Babylon, there we sat
down, yea, we wept, when we remem-
bered Zion.

2 We hanged our harps upon the willows
in the midst thereof.

3 For there they that carried us away
captive required of us f a song ; and they
that t * wasted us required of us mirth, say-
ing, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

4 How shall we sing the Lord's song in
t a strange land ?

5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my
right hand forget her cunning.

6 If I do not remember thee, let my
•» tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if
I prefer not Jerusalem above f my chief joy.

7 Remember, O Lord, nhe children of
Edom in the day of Jerusalem ; who said,

547



David praiseth God for his truth.

t Rase it, rase it, even, to the foundation
thereof.

8 O daughter of Babylon, ^who art to be
t destroyed ; happy shall he be, t « that re-
wardeth thee as thou hast served us.

9 Happy shall he be that taketh and
•"dasheth thy little ones against f the stones.

1 David praiseth God for the truth of his word. 4 He
prophesieth that the kings of the earth shall praise
God. 7 He professeth his confidence in God.

IT A Psalm of David.

I "WILL praise thee with my whole heart:
^ before the gods will I sing praise unto
thee.

2 •>! will worship "toward thy holy temple,
and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness
and for thy truth : for thou hast ^ magnified
thy word above all thy name.

3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst
me, and strengthenedst me with strength in
my soul.

4 * All the kings of the earth shall praise
thee, O Lord, when they hear the words of
thy mouth.

5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the
Lord : for great is the glory of the Lord.

6 '"Though the Lord be high, yet ^ hath
he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he
knoweth afar off.

7 '' Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
thou wilt revive me : thou shalt stretch forth
thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies,
and thy right hand shall save me.

8 'The Lord will perfect that which con-
cerneth me : thy mercy, O Lord, endureth
for ever : '' forsake not the works of thine
own hands.

God^s all-seeing providence.

7 s Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? or
whither shall I flee from thy presence ?

8 •'If I ascend up into heaven, thou art
there: 'if I make my bed in hell, behold,
thou art there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and
dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea ;

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me,
and thy right hand shall hold me.

11 If I say. Surely the darkness shall
cover me ; even the night shall be light about
me.

12 Yea, ■'the darkness fhideth not from
thee ; but the night shineth as the day : '
t the darkness and the hght are both alike
to thee.

13 For thou hast possessed my reins
thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

14 I will praise thee ; for I am fearfully
and wonderfully made : marvellous are thy
works ; and that my soul knoweth f right
well.

15 'My II substance was not hid from thee,
when I was made in secret, and curiously
wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet
being unperfect ; and in thy book f all my
members were written, || which in continuance
were fashioned, when as yet there was none
of them.

17 ""How precious also are thy thoughts
unto me, O God ! how great is the sum of
them!

IS If I should count them, they are more
in number than the sand: when I awake, I
am still with thee.

19 Surely thou wilt "slay the wicked, O
God : " depart from me therefore, ye bloody
men.

20 For they P speak against thee wickedly,
and thine enemies take thy name in vain.

21 "iDo not I hate them, O Lord, that
hate thee ? and am not I grieved with those
that rise up against thee ?

22 I hate them with perfect hatred : ]
count them mine enemies.

23 •■ Search me, O God, and know my
heart : try me, and know my thoughts :

24 And see if there be any f wicked way
in me, and ^lead me in the way everlasting.

PSALM CXL.

I David prayeth to be delivered from Saul and Doeg,
8 he prayeth against them. 12 He comforteth himself
by confidence in God.

II To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

DELIVER me, O Lord, from the evil
man : " preserve me from the t violent
man;

2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart;

David prayeth against his enemies.

•• continually are they gathered together ybr
war.

3 They have sharpened their tongues like
a serpent ; •= adders' poison is u nder their hps.
Selah.

4 '■Keep me, O Loud, from the hands
of the wicked ; « preserve me from the violent
man ; who have purposed to overthrow my
goings.

5 f The proud have hid a snare for me, and
cords ; they have spread a net by the way
side ; they have set gins for me. Selah.

6 I said unto the Lord, Thou art my
God : hear the voice of my supplications,

Lord.

7 O God the Lord, the strength of my
salvation, thou hast covered my head in the
day of battle.

8 Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the
wicked: further not his wicked device;
II s/esf they exalt themselves. Selah.

9 As for the head of those that compass
me about, ''let the mischief of their own lips
cover them.

10 'Let burning coals fall upon them; let
them be cast into the fire ; into deep pits,
that they rise not up again.

11 Let not t II an evil speaker be establish-
ed in the earth : evil shall hunt the violent
man to overthrow him.

12 I know that the Lord will ''maintain
the cause of the afflicted, and ^e right of
the poor.

13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks
unto thy name : the upright shall dwell in
thy presence.

PSALM CXLL

1 David prayeth that his suit may be acceptable, 3 his

conscience sincere, 7 and his life safe from snares.

TTA Psalm of David.

LORD, I cry unto thee : "make haste
unto me ; give ear unto my voice, when
I cry unto thee.

2 Let ''my prayer be fset forth before
thee "as incense ; and ''the lifting up of my
hands as *the evening sacrifice.

3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my
mouth ; keep the door of my lips.

4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing,
to practise wicked works with men that work
iniquity: ''and let me not eat of their dain-
ties.

5 s II Let the righteous smite me ; it shall
le a kindness : and let him reprove me ; it
shall be an excellent oil, which shall not
break my head : for yet my prayer also shall
be in their calamities.
