enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are

 The LORD will
command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be
with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
 God is our
refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.
 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
 According to
thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is
full of righteousness.
 Hear this,
all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:
 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the
sun unto the going down thereof.
 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth.

 Give ear to
my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the
shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.

 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.

lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:

God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
 I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
 I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.
 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
 They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.
 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
 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.
 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.
 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.
 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein.
 Make haste, O
God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.
 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
 Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
 But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
 In thee, O
LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
 Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
 Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
 For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
 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.
 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
 Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.
 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
 I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
 Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!
 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
 Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One.
 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
 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.
 The mountains
shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
 Blessed be the LORD God who only doeth wondrous things.
 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
 Truly God is
good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
 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.
 The day is
thine, the night also is thine: thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
 O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
 O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.
 Unto thee, O
God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near
thy wondrous works declare.
 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:
 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
 For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
 I cried unto
God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search.
 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
 I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
 Thou art the God that doest wonders.
 Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound.
 The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.
 But he,
being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea,
many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
 He fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
 Help us, O
God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away
our sins, for thy name's sake.
 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
 Sing aloud unto
God our strength: make a joyful noise unto God.
 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
 Defend the
poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
 Blessed is
the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
 O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
 Mercy and
truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
 Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
 Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
 Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
 Bow down
thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.
 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.
 Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
 Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.
 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
 For thou art great, and doest wondrous things: thou art God alone.
 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth.
 I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
 For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
 O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.
 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
 O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
 Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.
 O LORD God of
my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee:
 Let my prayer come before thee: incline thine ear unto my cry;
 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man that hath no strength:
 But unto thee have I cried, O LORD.
 I will sing
of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy
faithfulness to all generations.
 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
 For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.
 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
 The north and the south thou hast created them.
 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
 Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
 LORD, thou
hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
 He that
dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of
 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
 It is a good
thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most
 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
 The LORD
reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength,
wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot
 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.
 O LORD God,
to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see.
 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him;
 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief?
 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
 O come, let
us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
 O sing unto
the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.
 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised.
 The LORD made the heavens.
 Honour and majesty are before him: strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
 Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name.
 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
 The LORD
reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
 For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth.
 Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
 Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
 Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
 O sing unto
the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and
his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.
 Make a joyful
noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
 I will behave
myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk
within my house with a perfect heart.
 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
 Hear my
prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.
 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
 My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
 But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.
 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
 Bless the
LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
 Bless the
LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with
honour and majesty.
 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.
 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.
 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
 O give thanks
unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done;
 Praise ye the
LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for
 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?
 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
 O give thanks
unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
 O God, my
heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;
 That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.
 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice.
 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
 Hold not thy
peace, O God of my praise;
 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
 For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.
 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.
 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.
 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
 That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it.
 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.
 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
 Praise ye the
LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the
upright, and in the congregation.
 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
 Unto the
upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of
compassion, and righteous.
 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
 Praise ye the
LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.
 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
 The mountains
skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
 Ye are
blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
 I love the
LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
 O praise the
LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
 O give thanks
unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.
 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 I will praise
thee with uprightness of heart.
 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
 Remove from me the way of lying.
 I have chosen the way of truth.
 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.
 Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
 Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.
 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.
 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me.
 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy.
 Teach me good judgment and knowledge.
 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
 Thou art good, and doest good.
 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
 Their heart is as fat as grease.
 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn.
 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding.
 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live.
 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
 The proud have digged pits for me.
 They persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.
 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.
 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.
 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
 I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.
 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.
 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.
 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.
 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.
 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.
 I hate vain thoughts.
 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.
 Depart from me, ye evildoers.
 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.
 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe.
 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.
 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy.
 I am thy servant; give me understanding.
 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.
 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.
 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant.
 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes.
 Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.
 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.
 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.
 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness.
 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness.
 Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.
 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.
 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD.
 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.
 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.
 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.
 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
 Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.
 I hate and abhor lying.
 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee.
 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant.
 In my
distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
 I will lift
up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
 Pray for the
peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
 Unto thee
lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
 Our soul is escaped
as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are
 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
 For the rod
of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous
put forth their hands unto iniquity.
 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.
 Then was our
mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among
the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.
 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
 For thou
shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well
 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Earth.
 The LORD is
righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.
 Out of the
depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
 LORD, my
heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in
great matters, or in things too high for me.
 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
 I will
abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.
 Behold, how
good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.
 Praise ye the
LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.
 Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.
 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
 He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
 O give thanks
unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:
 The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:
 The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:
 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.
 In the day
when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my
 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.
 Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
 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.
 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
 O LORD, thou
hast searched me, and known me.
 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
 Deliver me, O
LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me.
 I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
 Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.
 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
 LORD, I cry
unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.
 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
 But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins of the workers of iniquity.
 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
 I cried unto
the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication.
 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.
 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.
 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
 I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.
 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.
 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
 Hear my
prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy faithfulness answer me,
and in thy righteousness.
 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.
 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate.
 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.
 I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land.
 Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.
 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness 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.
 Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me.
 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
 Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
 Man is like
to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
 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.
 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.
 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.
 I will extol
thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.
 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.
 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
 Praise ye the
LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.
 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:
 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:
 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:
 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
 Praise ye the
LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and
praise is comely.
 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
 The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
 Praise ye the
LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.
 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
 Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
 Praise ye the
LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of
 Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.
 For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
 Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
 Praise ye the
LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.
 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
