stony places, they shall hear my words; for
they are sweet.

7 Our bones are scattered ""at the grave's
mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth
wood upon the earth.

8 But 'mine eyes are unto thee, O God
the Lord: in thee is my trust; t leave not
my soul destitute.

9 Keep me from ''the snare which they
have laid for me, and the gins of the workers
of iniquity.

10 'Let the wicked fall into their own
nets, whilst that I withal f escape.

PSALM CXLIL

David sheioeth that in his trouble all his comfort was
in prayer unto God.

IT* II Maschil of David ; A Prayer *when he
was in the cave.

I CRIED unto the Lord with my voice ;
with my voice unto the Lord did I make
my supplication.

2 ''I poured out my complaint before him ;
I shewed before him my trouble.

3 I" When my spirit was overwhelmed
within me, then thou knewest my path.
"In the way wherein I walked have they pri-
vily laid a snare for me.

4 '' |] I looked on my right hand, and be-
held, but ^ there was no man that would
know me : refuge t failed me ; t no man cared
for my soul.

5 I cried unto thee, O Lord : I said,
'^Thou art my refuge and emy portion ''in
the land of the living.

6 Attend unto my cry ; for I am ' brought
very low : deliver me from my persecutors ;
for they are stronger than I.

7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may
praise thy name : ''the righteous shall com-
pass me about ; ' for thou shalt deal bounti-
fully with me.

PSALM CXLIIL

1 David prayeth for favour in judgment. 3 He com-
plaineth of his griefs. 5 He strengtheneth his faith by
meditation and prayer. 7 He prayeth for grace,
Q for deliverance, 10 for sanctification, 12 for destruc-
tion of his enemies.

IT A Psalm of David.

HEAR my prayer, O Lord, give ear
to my supplications : ^ in thy faithful-
ness answer me, and in thy righteousness.

2 And ''enter not into judgment with
thy servant: for "in thy sight shall no man
living be justified.

3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul ;
he hath smitten my life down to the ground ;
he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as
those that have been long dead.

David blesseth God for his mercy.

4 ^Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed
within me ; my heart within me is desolate.

5 «I remember the days of old, I medi-
tate on all thy works; I muse on the work
of thy hands.

6 f I stretch forth my hands unto thee :
?my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty
land. Selah. ^

7 Hear me speedily, O Lord : my spirit
faileth: hide not thy face from me, ^jl lest
I be like unto them that go down into the
pit.

8 Cause me to hear thy loving kindness
'in the morning; for in thee do I trust:
''cause me to know the way wherein I should
walk ; for 'I lift up my soul unto thee.

9 Deliver me, O Lord, from mine ene-
mies : I tflee unto thee to hide me.

10 "Teach me to do thy will; for thou
art my God : ° thy Spirit is good ; lead me
into "the land of uprightness.

11 p Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's
sake : for thy righteousness' sake bring my
soul out of trouble.

12 And of thy mercy icut off mine ene-
mies, and destroy all them that afflict my
soul ; for "^I am thy servant.

PSALM CXLIV.

1 David blesseth God for his mercy both to him and to
man. 5 He prayeth that God would powerfully deliver
him from his enemies. 9 He promiseih to praise God.
11 He prayeth for the happy estate of the kingdom.

IT J. Psalm of David.

BLESSED be the Lord fmy strength,
''which teacheth my hands fto war, and
my fingers to fight ;

2 ^ II My goodness, and my fortress ; my
high tower, and my deliverer ; my shield,
and he in whom I trust ; who subdueth my
people under me.

3 "Lord, what is man, that thou takest
knowledge of him ! or the son of man, that
thou makest account of him !

4 ^Man is like to vanity: ''his days are
as a shadow that passeth away.

5 '"Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come
down : e touch the mountains, and they shall
smoke.

6 ""Cast forth lightning, and scatter them :
shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

7 'Send thine thand from above; ''rid me,
and deliver me out of great waters, from the
hand of 'strange children;

8 Whose mouth "speaketh vanity, and
their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

9 I will "sing a new song unto thee, O
God : upon a psaltery and an instrument of
ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.

10 " It is he that giveth || salvation unto

praised; fand <=his greatness is unsearch-
able.

4 ^ One generation shall praise thy works
to another, and shall declare thy mighty
acts.

5 1 will speak of the glorious honour of thy
majesty, and of thy wondrous t works.

6 And men shall speak of the might of
thy terrible acts : and I will t declare thy
greatness.

7 They shall abundantly utter the memory
of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy
righteousness.

8 " The Lord is gracious, and full of com-
passion ; slow to anger, and t of great mercy.

der mercies are over all his works.

The benefit of trusting in God.

14 The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and
'raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

15 ''The eyes of all ||wait upon thee:
and 'thou gjvest them their meat in due
season.

16 Thou openest thine hand, ™and satis-
fiest the desire of every living thing.

17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways,
and Ij holy in all his works.

18 "The Lord is nigh unto all them that
call upon him, to all that call upon him "in

19 He will fulfil the desire of them that
fear him: he also will hear their cry, and
will save them.

20 pThe Lord preserveth all them that
love him : but all the wicked will he destroy.

21 My mouth shall speak the praise of
the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy
name for ever and ever.

PSALM CXLVL

I The psalmist votoeth perpetual praises to God. 3 He
exhorteth not to trust in vian. 5 God, for his power,

PRAISE tye the Lord. * Praise the
Lord, O my soul.

2 ''While I live will I praise the Lord:
I will sing praises unto my God while I have
any being.

3 ''Put not your trust in princes, nor in
the son of man, in whom there is no {| help.

4 *His breath goeth forth, he returneth to
his earth J in that very day *his thoughts
perish.

5 '"Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob
for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his
God:

6 s Which made heaven, and earth, the
sea, and all that therein is : which keepeth
truth for ever :

7 ''Which executeth judgment for the
oppressed : 'which giveth food to the hungry.
■'The Lord looseth the prisoners :

8 'The Lord openeth the eyes of the
blind: "the Lord raiseth them that are
bowed down : the Lord loveth the righteous :

9 "The Lord preserveth the strangers ; he
relieveththe fatherless and widow: "but the
way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

10 PThe Lord shall reign for ever, even
thy God, O Zion, unto all generations.
Praise ye the Lord.

to sing praises unto our God ; ""for it is
pleasant; and "Upraise is comely.

2 The Lord doth "i build up Jerusalem:
"he gftthereth together the outcasts of Israel.

3 '"He healeth the broken in heart, and
bindeth up their f wounds.

4 sHe telleth the number of the stars ; he
calleth them all by their names.

5 '" Great is our Lord, and of 'great
power : t ''his understanding is infinite.

6 'The Lord lifteth up the meek: he
casteth the wicked down to the ground.

7 Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving ;
sing praise upon the harp unto our God :

8 ""Who covereth the heaven with clouds,
who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh
grass to grow upon the mountains.

9 °He giveth to the beast his food, and "to
the young ravens which cry.

10 pHe delighteth not in the strength of
the horse : he taketh not pleasure in the legs
of a man.

11 The Lord laketh pleasure in them
that fear him, in those that hope ' in his
mercy.

12 Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem ; praise
thy God, O Zion.

13 For he hath strengthened the bars of
thy gates ; he hath blessed thy children
within thee.

and 'filleth thee with the f finest of the
wheat.

upon earth : his word runneth very swiftly.

eth the hoar-frost like ashes.

17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels :
\f ho can stand before his cold ?

18 "He sendeth out his word, and melteth
them : he causeth his wind to blow, and the
waters flow.

8 eMy son, hear the instruction of thy
father, and forsake not the law of thy mo-
ther :

9 For ''they shall he tan ornament of
grace unto thy head, and chains about thy
neck.

552



Wisdom eomplaineth of her contempt.

10 IT My son, if sinners entice thee, 'con-
sent thou not.

11 If they say, Come with us, let us ''lay
wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the in-
nocent without cause :

12 Let us swallow them up alive as the
giave; and whole, 'as those that go down
into the pit :

13 We shall find all precious substance,
we shall fill our houses with spoil :

14 Cast in thy lot among us ; let us all
have one purse :

15 My son "walk not thou in the way
with them ; " refrain thy foot from their path :

16 °For their feet run to evil, and make
haste to shed blood :

17 Surely in vain the net is spread fin
the sight of any bird.

18 And they lay wait for their own blood;
they lurk privily for their own lives.

19 p So are the ways of every one that is
greedy of gain ; which taketh away the life
of the owners thereof.

20 1[ 1 1 Wisdom crieth without ; she utter-
eth her voice in the streets :

21 She crieth in the chief place of con-
course, ia the openings of the gates : in the
city she uttereth her words, saying,

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love
simplicity ? and the scorners delight in their
scorning, and fools hate knowledge ?

23 Turn you at my reproof : behold, ■■ I
will pour out my spirit unto you, I will
make known my words unto you.

24 If 'Because I have called and ye re-
fused; I have stretched out my hand, and
no man regarded ;

25 But ye *have set at nought all my
counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 "I also will laugh at your calamity : I
will mock when your fear cometh ;

27 When ^your fear cometh as desolation,
and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind;
when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 yThen shall they call upon me, but I
will not answer; they shall seek me early,
but they shall not find me ;

29 For that they ' hated knowledge, and
did not ''choose the fear of the Lord :

30 '•They would none of my counsel:
they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore "shall they eat of the fruit
of their own way, and be filled with their
own devices.

32 For the || turning^ away of the simple
shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools
shall destroy them.

33 But ^ whoso hearkeneth unto me shall
dwell safely, and « shall be quiet from fear of
evil.

She promiseth godliness to her children.
CHAP. H.

I Wisdom promiseth godliness to her children, 10 and
safety from evil company, 20 and direction in good
ways.

MY son, if thou wilt receive my words,
and *hide my commandments with
thee;

2 So that thou incline thine ear unto
wisdom, and apply thine heart to understand-
ing;

3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and
tliftest up thy voice for understanding;

4 '•If thou seekest her as silver, and search-
est for her as /or hid treasures ;

5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of
the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

6 "For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of
his mouth cometh knowledge and under-
standing.

7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the
righteous : ^ he is a buckler to them that walk
uprightly.

8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and
"preserveth the way of his saints.

9 Then shalt thou understand righteous-
ness, and judgment, and equity ; yea, every
good path.

10 IT When wisdom entereth into thine
heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy
soul;

11 Discretion shall preserve thee, ^under-
standing shall keep thee :

12 To deliver thee from the way of the
evil man, from the man that speaketh froward
things ;

13 Who leave the paths of uprightness, to
ewalk in the ways of darkness;

14 Who ''rejoice to do evil, and 'delight
