1319

Your tongue devises destruction,
Like a sharp razor, O worker of deceit.

1320

Let my meditation be pleasing to Him;
As for me, I shall be glad in the Lord.

1321

Let them praise Your great and awesome name;
Holy is He.

1322

I will establish your seed forever
And build up your throne to all generations.” Selah.

1323

Your way was in the sea
And Your paths in the mighty waters,
And Your footprints may not be known.

1324

For our heart rejoices in Him,
Because we trust in His holy name.

1325

I hate the assembly of evildoers,
And I will not sit with the wicked.

1326

“For forty years I loathed that generation,
And said they are a people who err in their heart,
And they do not know My ways.

1327

My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.

1328

O God of hosts, restore us
And cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.

1329

“With reproofs You chasten a man for iniquity;
You consume as a moth what is precious to him;
Surely every man is a mere breath. Selah.

1332

The humble have seen it and are glad;
You who seek God, let your heart revive.

1333

Lord, how long will You look on?
Rescue my soul from their ravages,
My only life from the lions.

1334

Let me not be put to shame, O Lord, for I call upon You;
Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol.

1335

I shall wash my hands in innocence,
And I will go about Your altar, O Lord,

1336

That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born,
That they may arise and tell them to their children,

1337

My eyes shed streams of water,
Because they do not keep Your law.

1338

Then Phinehas stood up and interposed,
And so the plague was stayed.

1340

So we Your people and the sheep of Your pasture
Will give thanks to You forever;
To all generations we will tell of Your praise.

1341

He wrought wonders before their fathers
In the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

1343

Awake, my glory!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.

1344

Let the rivers clap their hands,
Let the mountains sing together for joy

1345

She will be led to the King in embroidered work;
The virgins, her companions who follow her,
Will be brought to You.

1346

I will remember my song in the night;
I will meditate with my heart,
And my spirit ponders:

1347

Look to the right and see;
For there is no one who regards me;
There is no escape for me;
No one cares for my soul.

1349

Oh that my ways may be established
To keep Your statutes!

1350

“So I will establish his descendants forever
And his throne as the days of heaven.

1351

Will You perform wonders for the dead?
Will the departed spirits rise and praise You? Selah.

1352

Yet He commanded the clouds above
And opened the doors of heaven;

1353

The Lord loves the gates of Zion
More than all the other dwelling places of Jacob.

1354

And they remembered that God was their rock,
And the Most High God their Redeemer.

1355

For I have heard the slander of many,
Terror is on every side;
While they took counsel together against me,
They schemed to take away my life.

1358

He sends forth His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.

1359

You with Your own hand drove out the nations;
Then You planted them;
You afflicted the peoples,
Then You spread them abroad.

1360

They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
But the Lord was my stay.

1362

Let them also offer sacrifices of thanksgiving,
And tell of His works with joyful singing.

1363

But You, O God, the Lord, deal kindly with me for Your name’s sake;
Because Your lovingkindness is good, deliver me;

1364

For Your lovingkindness is great above the heavens,
And Your truth reaches to the skies.

1365

My soul waits for the Lord
More than the watchmen for the morning;
Indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning.

1366

Bring my soul out of prison,
So that I may give thanks to Your name;
The righteous will surround me,
For You will deal bountifully with me.”

1367

They also do no unrighteousness;
They walk in His ways.

1368

He has made His wonders to be remembered;
The Lord is gracious and compassionate.

1369

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
From everlasting even to everlasting.
And let all the people say, “Amen.”
Praise the Lord!

1370

That when the wicked sprouted up like grass
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.

1372

For the Lord has built up Zion;
He has appeared in His glory.

1373

Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.

1374

We have sinned like our fathers,
We have committed iniquity, we have behaved wickedly.

1376

I will also praise You with a harp,
Even Your truth, O my God;
To You I will sing praises with the lyre,
O Holy One of Israel.

1377

The Lord is great in Zion,
And He is exalted above all the peoples.

1378

Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.

1379

Will Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave,
Your faithfulness in Abaddon?

1382

There they were in great fear where no fear had been;
For God scattered the bones of him who encamped against you;
You put them to shame, because God had rejected them.

1383

In God we have boasted all day long,
And we will give thanks to Your name forever. Selah.

1384

As for me, I said in my alarm,
“I am cut off from before Your eyes”;
Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications
When I cried to You.

1385

And my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,”
And my adversaries will rejoice when I am shaken.

1386

The young lions roar after their prey
And seek their food from God.

1388

My soul is among lions;
I must lie among those who breathe forth fire,
Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows
And their tongue a sharp sword.

1390

Your statutes are my songs
In the house of my pilgrimage.

1391

But transgressors will be altogether destroyed;
The posterity of the wicked will be cut off.

1393

The troubles of my heart are enlarged;
Bring me out of my distresses.

1394

For the king trusts in the Lord,
And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.

1395

The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;
The right hand of the Lord does valiantly.

1396

But they mingled with the nations
And learned their practices,

1397

Sing to Him, sing praises to Him;
Speak of all His wonders.

1399

Your name, O Lord, is everlasting,
Your remembrance, O Lord, throughout all generations.

1400

Make Your face to shine upon Your servant;
Save me in Your lovingkindness.

1402

Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
And give heed to the voice of my supplications!

1404

More than the sounds of many waters,
Than the mighty breakers of the sea,
The Lord on high is mighty.

1405

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
Sing praises to His name, for it is lovely.

1406

How long, O Lord? Will You be angry forever?
Will Your jealousy burn like fire?

1407

In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord;
In the night my hand was stretched out without weariness;
My soul refused to be comforted.

1409

From His dwelling place He looks out
On all the inhabitants of the earth,

1410

I will come with the mighty deeds of the Lord God;
I will make mention of Your righteousness, Yours alone.

1411

They have ears, but they cannot hear;
They have noses, but they cannot smell;

1412

Until I came into the sanctuary of God;
Then I perceived their end.

1415

The earth has yielded its produce;
God, our God, blesses us.

1416

The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
He raised His voice, the earth melted.

1418

Give heed to me and answer me;
I am restless in my complaint and am surely distracted,

1419

You are my King, O God;
Command victories for Jacob.

1421

The mountains rose; the valleys sank down
To the place which You established for them.

1423

Who made heaven and earth,
The sea and all that is in them;
Who keeps faith forever;

1424

And do not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
For I wait for Your ordinances.

1425

With trumpets and the sound of the horn
Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord.

1426

Moses and Aaron were among His priests,
And Samuel was among those who called on His name;
They called upon the Lord and He answered them.

1427

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

1429

Turn Your gaze away from me, that I may smile again
Before I depart and am no more.”

1430

That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving
And declare all Your wonders.

1431

And served their idols,
Which became a snare to them.

1432

Nor do those who pass by say,
“The blessing of the Lord be upon you;
We bless you in the name of the Lord.”

1433

Then I shall not be ashamed
When I look upon all Your commandments.

1434

The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us;
He will bless the house of Israel;
He will bless the house of Aaron.

1435

Let the field exult, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy

1436

“So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart,
To walk in their own devices.

1437

I say, “O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days,
Your years are throughout all generations.

1438

Let them fear You while the sun endures,
And as long as the moon, throughout all generations.

1440

Deliver me from the mire and do not let me sink;
May I be delivered from my foes and from the deep waters.

1441

My mouth will speak wisdom,
And the meditation of my heart will be understanding.

1442

He gathers the waters of the sea together as a heap;
He lays up the deeps in storehouses.

1443

Do not drag me away with the wicked
And with those who work iniquity,
Who speak peace with their neighbors,
While evil is in their hearts.

1444

The Lord supports the afflicted;
He brings down the wicked to the ground.

1445

Give thanks to the God of heaven,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

1446

I will never forget Your precepts,
For by them You have revived me.

1447

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
And He brought them out of their distresses.

1448

“There I will cause the horn of David to spring forth;
I have prepared a lamp for Mine anointed.

1449

You are my God, and I give thanks to You;
You are my God, I extol You.

1450

May those who wait for You not be ashamed through me, O Lord God of hosts;
May those who seek You not be dishonored through me, O God of Israel,

1451

Iniquities prevail against me;
As for our transgressions, You forgive them.

1452

For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens
And Your truth to the clouds.

1454

I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.

1455

Arise, O Lord, confront him, bring him low;
Deliver my soul from the wicked with Your sword,

1456

Who gives food to all flesh,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

1457

Through You we will push back our adversaries;
Through Your name we will trample down those who rise up against us.

1458

Behold our shield, O God,
And look upon the face of Your anointed.

1459

The high mountains are for the wild goats;
The cliffs are a refuge for the shephanim.

1460

When He killed them, then they sought Him,
And returned and searched diligently for God;

1461

“Now consider this, you who forget God,
Or I will tear you in pieces, and there will be none to deliver.

1462

O Lord our God, You answered them;
You were a forgiving God to them,
And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.

1464

Man is like a mere breath;
His days are like a passing shadow.

1465

Be gracious to me, O Lord,
For to You I cry all day long.

1466

I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings
And shall not be ashamed.

1467

The sons of Ephraim were archers equipped with bows,
Yet they turned back in the day of battle.

1468

And You have not given me over into the hand of the enemy;
You have set my feet in a large place.

1469

Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.

1471

That they should put their confidence in God
And not forget the works of God,
But keep His commandments,

1473

I cried out to You, O Lord;
I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.

1474

Restore our captivity, O Lord,
As the streams in the South.

1475

For our shield belongs to the Lord,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

1476

The righteous man will be glad in the Lord and will take refuge in Him;
And all the upright in heart will glory.

1477

You have made Your people experience hardship;
You have given us wine to drink that makes us stagger.

1480

He who fashions the hearts of them all,
He who understands all their works.

1481

For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind,
Which lifted up the waves of the sea.

1483

Therefore He said that He would destroy them,
Had not Moses His chosen one stood in the breach before Him,
To turn away His wrath from destroying them.

1484

To declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

1486

I hastened and did not delay
To keep Your commandments.

1487

Thus He remembered that they were but flesh,
A wind that passes and does not return.

1488

Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword.
They aimed bitter speech as their arrow,

1489

Restore us, O God of our salvation,
And cause Your indignation toward us to cease.

1490

The earth quaked;
The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God;
Sinai itself quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

1491

For behold, Your enemies make an uproar,
And those who hate You have exalted themselves.

1492

Let me dwell in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.

1493

For He looked down from His holy height;
From heaven the Lord gazed upon the earth,

1494

Which we have heard and known,
And our fathers have told us.

1495

Jerusalem, that is built
As a city that is compact together;

1496

The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

1497

When you lie down among the sheepfolds,
You are like the wings of a dove covered with silver,
And its pinions with glistening gold.

1498

Walk about Zion and go around her;
Count her towers;

1499

As is Your name, O God,
So is Your praise to the ends of the earth;
Your right hand is full of righteousness.

1500

Rise up, be our help,
And redeem us for the sake of Your lovingkindness.

1501

If we had forgotten the name of our God
Or extended our hands to a strange god,

1502

“I have become mute, I do not open my mouth,
Because it is You who have done it.

1503

But You, O Lord, be gracious to me and raise me up,
That I may repay them.

1504

Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.

1505

Thus they exchanged their glory
For the image of an ox that eats grass.

1506

You water its furrows abundantly,
You settle its ridges,
You soften it with showers,
You bless its growth.

1507

The Lord is high above all nations;
His glory is above the heavens.

1510

He who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He who speaks falsehood shall not maintain his position before me.

1511

A senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a stupid man understand this:

1512

In place of your fathers will be your sons;
You shall make them princes in all the earth.

1513

My foot stands on a level place;
In the congregations I shall bless the Lord.

1514

For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah.

1516

And He has lifted up a horn for His people,
Praise for all His godly ones;
Even for the sons of Israel, a people near to Him.
Praise the Lord!

1517

I resemble a pelican of the wilderness;
I have become like an owl of the waste places.

1518

But I, O Lord, have cried out to You for help,
And in the morning my prayer comes before You.

1519

Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones,
And give thanks to His holy name.

1520

But of Zion it shall be said, “This one and that one were born in her”;
And the Most High Himself will establish her.

1521

Arise, O God, judge the earth!
For it is You who possesses all the nations.

1522

Let heaven and earth praise Him,
The seas and everything that moves in them.

1523

Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!
Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You.

1524

Do not slay them, or my people will forget;
Scatter them by Your power, and bring them down,
O Lord, our shield.

1525

Your hand will find out all your enemies;
Your right hand will find out those who hate you.

1526

Do not incline my heart to any evil thing,
To practice deeds of wickedness
With men who do iniquity;
And do not let me eat of their delicacies.

1527

Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah.

1528

When He performed His signs in Egypt
And His marvels in the field of Zoan,

1529

So I will have an answer for him who reproaches me,
For I trust in Your word.

1530

For my days have been consumed in smoke,
And my bones have been scorched like a hearth.

1531

Indeed, the Lord will give what is good,
And our land will yield its produce.

1532

Will the Lord reject forever?
And will He never be favorable again?

1533

Behold, these are the wicked;
And always at ease, they have increased in wealth.

1534

I am bent over and greatly bowed down;
I go mourning all day long.

1535

Remember Your congregation, which You have purchased of old,
Which You have redeemed to be the tribe of Your inheritance;
And this Mount Zion, where You have dwelt.

1536

Moab is My washbowl;
Over Edom I shall throw My shoe;
Shout loud, O Philistia, because of Me!”

1537

All day long he is gracious and lends,
And his descendants are a blessing.

1538

For You make him most blessed forever;
You make him joyful with gladness in Your presence.

1540

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
He delivered them out of their distresses.

1541

He waters the mountains from His upper chambers;
The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works.

1542

For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest upon the land of the righteous,
So that the righteous will not put forth their hands to do wrong.

1543

You have rejected all those who wander from Your statutes,
For their deceitfulness is useless.

1544

They have venom like the venom of a serpent;
Like a deaf cobra that stops up its ear,

1545

The waters saw You, O God;
The waters saw You, they were in anguish;
The deeps also trembled.

1546

Remember this, O Lord, that the enemy has reviled,
And a foolish people has spurned Your name.

1547

My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a blameless way is the one who will minister to me.

1548

Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man;
O You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You.

1549

Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth,
Sing praises to the Lord, Selah.

1550

But certainly God has heard;
He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.

1551

And when he comes to see me, he speaks falsehood;
His heart gathers wickedness to itself;
When he goes outside, he tells it.

1553

God will hear and answer them—
Even the one who sits enthroned from of old— Selah.
With whom there is no change,
And who do not fear God.

1554

Willingly I will sacrifice to You;
I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good.

1555

For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes,
And I have walked in Your truth.

1556

Give thanks to the Lord of lords,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

1559

Those who seek my life lay snares for me;
And those who seek to injure me have threatened destruction,
And they devise treachery all day long.

1560

Raise a song, strike the timbrel,
The sweet sounding lyre with the harp.

1561

Why should I fear in days of adversity,
When the iniquity of my foes surrounds me,

1563

You will only look on with your eyes
And see the recompense of the wicked.

1564

Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you;
O Israel, if you would listen to Me!

1565

They wandered in the wilderness in a desert region;
They did not find a way to an inhabited city.

1567

Those who make them will become like them,
Everyone who trusts in them.

1568

For the Lord will judge His people
And will have compassion on His servants.

1571

Where the birds build their nests,
And the stork, whose home is the fir trees.

1572

Take away reproach and contempt from me,
For I observe Your testimonies.

1573

Nevertheless He saved them for the sake of His name,
That He might make His power known.

1574

I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings;
I shall pay You my vows,

1575

You love evil more than good,
Falsehood more than speaking what is right. Selah.

1576

The voice of the Lord is powerful,
The voice of the Lord is majestic.

1577

In God, whose word I praise,
In the Lord, whose word I praise,

1578

Give thanks to the God of gods,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

1579

Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
With the lyre and the sound of melody.

1580

The Lord bless you from Zion,
And may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

1581

Pour out Your wrath upon the nations which do not know You,
And upon the kingdoms which do not call upon Your name.

1582

Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

1583

Do not remember the iniquities of our forefathers against us;
Let Your compassion come quickly to meet us,
For we are brought very low.

1584

Let Your work appear to Your servants
And Your majesty to their children.

1585

And those who repay evil for good,
They oppose me, because I follow what is good.

1586

Look upon my enemies, for they are many,
And they hate me with violent hatred.

1587

And He remembered His covenant for their sake,
And relented according to the greatness of His lovingkindness.

1588

Remember His wonders which He has done,
His marvels and the judgments uttered by His mouth,

1590

Let the nomads of the desert bow before him,
And his enemies lick the dust.

1592

Man did eat the bread of angels;
He sent them food in abundance.

1594

Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Your power
And come to save us!

1595

So may he live, and may the gold of Sheba be given to him;
And let them pray for him continually;
Let them bless him all day long.

1596

May their eyes grow dim so that they cannot see,
And make their loins shake continually.

1597

Rebuke the beasts in the reeds,
The herd of bulls with the calves of the peoples,
Trampling under foot the pieces of silver;
He has scattered the peoples who delight in war.

1599

God, in her palaces,
Has made Himself known as a stronghold.

1601

He will abide before God forever;
Appoint lovingkindness and truth that they may preserve him.

1602

Do not hide Your face from me in the day of my distress;
Incline Your ear to me;
In the day when I call answer me quickly.

1603

Then they spoke against God;
They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?

1604

You have removed all the wicked of the earth like dross;
Therefore I love Your testimonies.

1605

When God heard, He was filled with wrath
And greatly abhorred Israel;

1607

“O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.

1608

How long, O God, will the adversary revile,
And the enemy spurn Your name forever?

1609

The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites,
Moab and the Hagrites;

1611

Glorious things are spoken of you,
O city of God. Selah.

1612

Their inner thought is that their houses are forever
And their dwelling places to all generations;
They have called their lands after their own names.

1613

The God who executes vengeance for me,
And subdues peoples under me.

1615

Bow Your heavens, O Lord, and come down;
Touch the mountains, that they may smoke.

1616

Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness,
And let Your godly ones sing for joy.

1617

For they have conspired together with one mind;
Against You they make a covenant:

1618

“But I will not break off My lovingkindness from him,
Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness.

1619

Save us, O Lord our God,
And gather us from among the nations,
To give thanks to Your holy name
And glory in Your praise.

1620

Do return, O Lord; how long will it be?
And be sorry for Your servants.

1621

The north and the south, You have created them;
Tabor and Hermon shout for joy at Your name.

1622

You, even You, are to be feared;
And who may stand in Your presence when once You are angry?

1623

Draw also the spear and the battle-axe to meet those who pursue me;
Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.”

1624

Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine;
Ephraim also is the helmet of My head;
Judah is My scepter.

1625

My God in His lovingkindness will meet me;
God will let me look triumphantly upon my foes.

1626

His soul will abide in prosperity,
And his descendants will inherit the land.

1628

He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes.

1629

Sustain me according to Your word, that I may live;
And do not let me be ashamed of my hope.

1631

They said in their heart, “Let us completely subdue them.”
They have burned all the meeting places of God in the land.

1632

Lift up your heads, O gates,
And lift them up, O ancient doors,
That the King of glory may come in!

1633

When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
You knew my path.
In the way where I walk
They have hidden a trap for me.

1634

You appoint darkness and it becomes night,
In which all the beasts of the forest prowl about.

1635

Therefore I love Your commandments
Above gold, yes, above fine gold.

1636

Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?”
Let there be known among the nations in our sight,
Vengeance for the blood of Your servants which has been shed.

1637

O may Your lovingkindness comfort me,
According to Your word to Your servant.

1638

Oh give us help against the adversary,
For deliverance by man is in vain.

1640

But those who seek my life to destroy it,
Will go into the depths of the earth.

1641

He will redeem my soul in peace from the battle which is against me,
For they are many who strive with me.

1642

I will give You thanks in the great congregation;
I will praise You among a mighty throng.

1643

O Israel, trust in the Lord;
He is their help and their shield.

1644

The wicked will see it and be vexed,
He will gnash his teeth and melt away;
The desire of the wicked will perish.

1645

In whose hand are the depths of the earth,
The peaks of the mountains are His also.

1646

Even though princes sit and talk against me,
Your servant meditates on Your statutes.

1647

Make vows to the Lord your God and fulfill them;
Let all who are around Him bring gifts to Him who is to be feared.

1649

O God, shatter their teeth in their mouth;
Break out the fangs of the young lions, O Lord.

1650

Your vows are binding upon me, O God;
I will render thank offerings to You.

1651

For You have heard my vows, O God;
You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name.

1652

He asked life of You,
You gave it to him,
Length of days forever and ever.

1653

God has spoken in His holiness:
“I will exult, I will portion out Shechem and measure out the valley of Succoth.

1654

And in their heart they put God to the test
By asking food according to their desire.

1655

“I will abundantly bless her provision;
I will satisfy her needy with bread.

1656

He changes a wilderness into a pool of water
And a dry land into springs of water;

1658

Give heed to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are too strong for me.

1659

Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.

1660

He split the rocks in the wilderness
And gave them abundant drink like the ocean depths.

1661

They say, “How does God know?
And is there knowledge with the Most High?”

1662

“His descendants shall endure forever
And his throne as the sun before Me.

1663

If I had said, “I will speak thus,”
Behold, I would have betrayed the generation of Your children.

1664

As a shattering of my bones, my adversaries revile me,
While they say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”

1665

Then I said, “It is my grief,
That the right hand of the Most High has changed.”

1666

May the flood of water not overflow me
Nor the deep swallow me up,
Nor the pit shut its mouth on me.

1667

“I know every bird of the mountains,
And everything that moves in the field is Mine.

1668

Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.

1669

For You are the God of my strength; why have You rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

1670

Surely God will shatter the head of His enemies,
The hairy crown of him who goes on in his guilty deeds.

1671

The princes of the people have assembled themselves as the people of the God of Abraham,
For the shields of the earth belong to God;
He is highly exalted.

1672

Guard my soul and deliver me;
Do not let me be ashamed, for I take refuge in You.

1673

For You meet him with the blessings of good things;
You set a crown of fine gold on his head.

1675

Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips,
From a deceitful tongue.

1676

Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts,
And I will tell of Your greatness.

1677

And smote all the firstborn in Egypt,
The first issue of their virility in the tents of Ham.

1678

For my eyes are toward You, O God, the Lord;
In You I take refuge; do not leave me defenseless.

1679

Let my prayer come before You;
Incline Your ear to my cry!

1680

“When you see a thief, you are pleased with him,
And you associate with adulterers.

1681

Do not take my soul away along with sinners,
Nor my life with men of bloodshed,

1683

The Lord preserves the simple;
I was brought low, and He saved me.

1684

They will bear you up in their hands,
That you do not strike your foot against a stone.

1685

Though I have become like a wineskin in the smoke,
I do not forget Your statutes.

1686

Because they were rebellious against His Spirit,
He spoke rashly with his lips.

1687

And not be like their fathers,
A stubborn and rebellious generation,
A generation that did not prepare its heart
And whose spirit was not faithful to God.

1688

May all who hate Zion
Be put to shame and turned backward;

1689

He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron, whom He had chosen.

1690

And He brought forth His people with joy,
His chosen ones with a joyful shout.

1691

But chose the tribe of Judah,
Mount Zion which He loved.

1692

And He built His sanctuary like the heights,
Like the earth which He has founded forever.

1693

He chooses our inheritance for us,
The glory of Jacob whom He loves. Selah.

1695

The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
The lightnings lit up the world;
The earth trembled and shook.

1696

With my lips I have told of
All the ordinances of Your mouth.

1697

Thus He rebuked the Red Sea and it dried up,
And He led them through the deeps, as through the wilderness.

1698

O Lord God of hosts,
How long will You be angry with the prayer of Your people?

1699

“I relieved his shoulder of the burden,
His hands were freed from the basket.

1701

Why do you look with envy, O mountains with many peaks,
At the mountain which God has desired for His abode?
Surely the Lord will dwell there forever.

1703

Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores His captive people,
Let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

1705

Remember me, O Lord, in Your favor toward Your people;
Visit me with Your salvation,

1706

Forsaken among the dead,
Like the slain who lie in the grave,
Whom You remember no more,
And they are cut off from Your hand.

1708

Pay heed, you senseless among the people;
And when will you understand, stupid ones?

1709

I am benumbed and badly crushed;
I groan because of the agitation of my heart.

1711

You make us a reproach to our neighbors,
A scoffing and a derision to those around us.

1712

The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

1713

That Your beloved may be delivered,
Save with Your right hand, and answer us!

1714

Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me;
Make haste, O Lord, to help me.

1715

He makes peace in your borders;
He satisfies you with the finest of the wheat.

1716

To Him who smote the Egyptians in their firstborn,
For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

1717

But craved intensely in the wilderness,
And tempted God in the desert.

1718

Who humbles Himself to behold
The things that are in heaven and in the earth?

1719

He has not dealt thus with any nation;
And as for His ordinances, they have not known them.
Praise the Lord!

1720

So the nations will fear the name of the Lord
And all the kings of the earth Your glory.
