How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate.

1309

The LORD builds up Jerusalem; He gathers the outcasts of Israel.

1310

I will meditate on all Your work And muse on Your deeds.

1311

My eyes anticipate the night watches, That I may meditate on Your word.

1312

The LORD is their strength, And He is a saving defense to His anointed.

1313

You have ordained Your precepts, That we should keep them diligently.

1314

"The earth and all who dwell in it melt; It is I who have firmly set its pillars. Selah.

1315

May you be blessed of the LORD, Maker of heaven and earth.

1316

I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the peoples, And I will sing praises to You among the nations.

1317

His tabernacle is in Salem; His dwelling place also is in Zion.

1318

You have swept them away like a flood, they fall asleep; In the morning they are like grass which sprouts anew.

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.

1330

For I hope in You, O LORD; You will answer, O Lord my God.

1331

I shall delight in Your commandments, Which I love.

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.

1342

For You have been a refuge for me, A tower of strength against the enemy.

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.

1356

We do not see our signs; There is no longer any prophet, Nor is there any among us who knows how long.

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.

1361

My heart is in anguish within me, And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.

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?

1380

His descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the upright will be blessed.

1381

I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, And You have become my salvation.

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.

1389

For You are the LORD Most High over all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods.

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.

1392

The Lord laughs at him, For He sees his day is coming.

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.

1408

O God, You are awesome from Your sanctuary The God of Israel Himself gives strength and power to the people Blessed be God!

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.

1413

They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones.

1414

It is time for the LORD to act, For they have broken Your law.

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.

1428

Your God has commanded your strength; Show Yourself strong, O God, who have acted on our behalf.

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.

1439

But I am afflicted and in pain; May Your salvation, O God, set me securely on high.

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.

1453

They will not be ashamed in the time of evil, And in the days of famine they will have abundance.

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.

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,

1472

Those who sit in the gate talk about me, And I am the song of the drunkards.

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.

1478

My heart throbs, my strength fails me; And the light of my eyes, even that has gone from me.

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.

1482

He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.

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.

1485

We who had sweet fellowship together Walked in the house of God in the throng.

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.

1508

He has regarded the prayer of the destitute And has not despised their prayer.

1509

To You I shall offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving, And call upon the name of the LORD.

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.

1552

Let the lying lips be mute, Which speak arrogantly against the righteous With pride and contempt.

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.

1558

Remove the false way from me, And graciously grant me Your law.

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,

1562

You rebuke the arrogant, the cursed, Who wander from Your commandments.

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.

1566

It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in princes.

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.

1570

He will bless those who fear the LORD, The small together with the great.

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,

1589

At midnight I shall rise to give thanks to You Because of Your righteous ordinances.

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.

1593

For the LORD hears the needy And does not despise His who are prisoners.

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;

1606

Confuse, O Lord, divide their tongues, For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

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.

1614

You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD; He is their help and their shield.

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.

1630

Show me a sign for good, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

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.

1648

Who stills the roaring of the seas, The roaring of their waves, And the tumult of the peoples.

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.

1674

But it is you, a man my equal, My companion and my familiar friend;

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,

1682

Let us go into His dwelling place; Let us worship at His footstool.

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.

1700

I am weary with my crying; my throat is parched; My eyes fail while I wait for my God.

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.

1702

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

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

1704

Awake, harp and lyre; I will awaken the dawn!

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.

1707

May the LORD give you increase, You and your children.

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.

1710

I am forgotten as a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.

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.

1721

He has remembered His lovingkindness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

1722

They did not keep the covenant of God And refused to walk in His law;

1723

Who said, "Let us possess for ourselves The pastures of God."

1724

For it is a statute for Israel, An ordinance of the God of Jacob.

1725

Who establishes the mountains by His strength, Being girded with might;

1726

This is the way of those who are foolish, And of those after them who approve their words. Selah.

1727

The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

1728

He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me Selah God will send forth His lovingkindness and His truth.

1729

The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow To cast down the afflicted and the needy, To slay those who are upright in conduct.

1730

By this I know that You are pleased with me, Because my enemy does not shout in triumph over me.

1731

For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead.

1732

Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.

1733

Like godless jesters at a feast, They gnashed at me with their teeth.

1734

They who dwell in the ends of the earth stand in awe of Your signs; You make the dawn and the sunset shout for joy.

1735

You make us a byword among the nations, A laughingstock among the peoples.

1736

"I do not reprove you for your sacrifices, And your burnt offerings are continually before Me.

1737

Both low and high, Rich and poor together.

1738

But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, The LORD will lead them away with the doers of iniquity Peace be upon Israel.

1739

You have established all the boundaries of the earth; You have made summer and winter.

1740

Then I called upon the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I beseech You, save my life!"

1741

You have removed my acquaintances far from me; You have made me an object of loathing to them; I am shut up and cannot go out.

1742

I hate them with the utmost hatred; They have become my enemies.

1743

He will judge among the nations, He will fill them with corpses, He will shatter the chief men over a broad country.

1744

You have put me in the lowest pit, In dark places, in the depths.

1745

May my heart be blameless in Your statutes, So that I will not be ashamed.

1746

I am reckoned among those who go down to the pit; I have become like a man without strength,

1747

He will rescue their life from oppression and violence, And their blood will be precious in his sight;

1748

When I remember God, then I am disturbed; When I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. Selah.

1749

Then I was senseless and ignorant; I was like a beast before You.

1750

With the east wind You break the ships of Tarshish.

1751

But the king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped.

1752

O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God who shows me lovingkindness.

1753

Let them be as a snail which melts away as it goes along, Like the miscarriages of a woman which never see the sun.

1754

Yet You have crushed us in a place of jackals And covered us with the shadow of death.

1755

Because of all my adversaries, I have become a reproach, Especially to my neighbors, And an object of dread to my acquaintances; Those who see me in the street flee from me.

1756

They repay me evil for good, To the bereavement of my soul.

1757

There the doers of iniquity have fallen; They have been thrust down and cannot rise.

1758

For there are no pains in their death, And their body is fat.

1759

For my loins are filled with burning, And there is no soundness in my flesh.

1760

He destroyed their vines with hailstones And their sycamore trees with frost.

1761

But at my stumbling they rejoiced and gathered themselves together; The smiters whom I did not know gathered together against me, They slandered me without ceasing.

1762

Oh let Israel say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting."

1763

But He sets the needy securely on high away from affliction, And makes his families like a flock.

1764

Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You who serve Him, doing His will.

1765

Let those be ashamed and dishonored who seek my life; Let those be turned back and humiliated who devise evil against me.

1766

But He led forth His own people like sheep And guided them in the wilderness like a flock;

1767

How long, O LORD? Will You hide Yourself forever? Will Your wrath burn like fire?

1769

They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power;

1770

When they became envious of Moses in the camp, And of Aaron, the holy one of the LORD,

1772

Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah, We found it in the field of Jaar.

1773

You have removed lover and friend far from me; My acquaintances are in darkness.

1774

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

1775

You have a strong arm; Your hand is mighty, Your right hand is exalted.

1776

Your wrath has rested upon me, And You have afflicted me with all Your waves. Selah.

1777

Yet they still continued to sin against Him, To rebel against the Most High in the desert.

1778

Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;

1779

To Him who rides upon the highest heavens, which are from ancient times; Behold, He speaks forth with His voice, a mighty voice.

1780

They have seen Your procession, O God, The procession of my God, my King, into the sanctuary.

1781

As when one plows and breaks open the earth, Our bones have been scattered at the mouth of Sheol.

1782

Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; Preserve me from violent men Who have purposed to trip up my feet.

1783

I understand more than the aged, Because I have observed Your precepts.

1784

Let them be like grass upon the housetops, Which withers before it grows up;

1785

Surely the righteous will give thanks to Your name; The upright will dwell in Your presence.

1786

Trouble and anguish have come upon me, Yet Your commandments are my delight.

1787

With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, With resounding music upon the lyre.

1788

How long shall the wicked, O LORD, How long shall the wicked exult?

1789

All nations surrounded me; In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

1791

He permitted no man to oppress them, And He reproved kings for their sakes:

1792

A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.

1793

Blessed be the name of the LORD From this time forth and forever.

1794

They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah.

1795

The LORD will count when He registers the peoples, "This one was born there." Selah.

1796

All day long they distort my words; All their thoughts are against me for evil.

1797

He delivers me from my enemies; Surely You lift me above those who rise up against me; You rescue me from the violent man.

1798

O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; Give ear, O God of Jacob! Selah.

1799

Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,

1801

The meadows are clothed with flocks And the valleys are covered with grain; They shout for joy, yes, they sing.

1802

They have set their mouth against the heavens, And their tongue parades through the earth.

1803

Make Your face shine upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes.

1804

He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.

1805

The sea looked and fled; The Jordan turned back.

1807

"You sit and speak against your brother; You slander your own mother's son.

1808

"The children of Your servants will continue, And their descendants will be established before You."

1809

Let them be like chaff before the wind, With the angel of the LORD driving them on.

1810

Let those be ashamed and humiliated together Who seek my life to destroy it; Let those be turned back and dishonored Who delight in my hurt.

1811

His glory is great through Your salvation, Splendor and majesty You place upon him.

1812

Blessed be the LORD, For He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city.

1813

May He remember all your meal offerings And find your burnt offering acceptable! Selah.

1814

I am small and despised, Yet I do not forget Your precepts.

1815

Let them extol Him also in the congregation of the people, And praise Him at the seat of the elders.

1816

He looks at the earth, and it trembles; He touches the mountains, and they smoke.

1817

O God of hosts, turn again now, we beseech You; Look down from heaven and see, and take care of this vine,

1818

Turn to me and be gracious to me, After Your manner with those who love Your name.

1819

Before your pots can feel the fire of thorns He will sweep them away with a whirlwind, the green and the burning alike.

1820

I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will express my riddle on the harp.

1821

A mountain of God is the mountain of Bashan; A mountain of many peaks is the mountain of Bashan.

1822

For You will make them turn their back; You will aim with Your bowstrings at their faces.

1823

For, lo, the kings assembled themselves, They passed by together.

1824

They have closed their unfeeling heart, With their mouth they speak proudly.

1825

If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand When I awake, I am still with You.

1827

I said to the LORD, "You are my God; Give ear, O LORD, to the voice of my supplications.

1828

Because of Your temple at Jerusalem Kings will bring gifts to You.

1830

For there our captors demanded of us songs, And our tormentors mirth, saying, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion."

1831

To Him who alone does great wonders, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

1832

And gathered from the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south.

1833

Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked.

1834

Even the shoot which Your right hand has planted, And on the son whom You have strengthened for Yourself.

1835

I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word.

1836

The clouds poured out water; The skies gave forth a sound; Your arrows flashed here and there.

1837

Then we shall not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.

1838

He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save.

1839

So that He abandoned the dwelling place at Shiloh, The tent which He had pitched among men,

1840

Who keeps us in life And does not allow our feet to slip.

1841

Requite them according to their work and according to the evil of their practices; Requite them according to the deeds of their hands; Repay them their recompense.

1842

Hear my prayer, O God; Give ear to the words of my mouth.

1843

As soon as they hear, they obey me; Foreigners submit to me.

1844

The LORD will reign forever, Your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!

1845

May those who fear You see me and be glad, Because I wait for Your word.

1846

Burning indignation has seized me because of the wicked, Who forsake Your law.

1847

For He has shattered gates of bronze And cut bars of iron asunder.

1848

Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble; He saved them out of their distresses.

1849

He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to illumine by night.

1850

For I will not trust in my bow, Nor will my sword save me.

1851

I shall keep Your statutes; Do not forsake me utterly!

1852

Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O LORD.

1853

When the Almighty scattered the kings there, It was snowing in Zalmon.

1854

He summons the heavens above, And the earth, to judge His people:

1855

They cried for help, but there was none to save, Even to the LORD, but He did not answer them.

1857

I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare my trouble before Him.

1858

They surrounded me like bees; They were extinguished as a fire of thorns; In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

1859

Thus they have repaid me evil for good And hatred for my love.

1860

They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without cause.

1861

Tremble, O earth, before the Lord, Before the God of Jacob,

1862

For He stands at the right hand of the needy, To save him from those who judge his soul.

1863

They forgot God their Savior, Who had done great things in Egypt,

1864

All day long my dishonor is before me And my humiliation has overwhelmed me,

1865

For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.

1866

O my God, make them like the whirling dust, Like chaff before the wind.

1867

You give us as sheep to be eaten And have scattered us among the nations.

1868

"When I select an appointed time, It is I who judge with equity.

1869

Who remembered us in our low estate, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

1870

To Him who divided the Red Sea asunder, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

1871

Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

1872

The LORD is for me among those who help me; Therefore I will look with satisfaction on those who hate me.

1873

A fruitful land into a salt waste, Because of the wickedness of those who dwell in it.

1874

Our feet are standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem,

1875

He led them also by a straight way, To go to an inhabited city.

1876

The strength of the King loves justice; You have established equity; You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.

1877

They afflicted his feet with fetters, He himself was laid in irons;

1878

Rise up, O Judge of the earth, Render recompense to the proud.

1879

He will drink from the brook by the wayside; Therefore He will lift up His head.

1880

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!

1881

"It shall be established forever like the moon, And the witness in the sky is faithful." Selah.

1882

"Let there be no strange god among you; Nor shall you worship any foreign god.

1883

He also rejected the tent of Joseph, And did not choose the tribe of Ephraim,

1884

"I said to the boastful, 'Do not boast,' And to the wicked, 'Do not lift up the horn;

1885

May You increase my greatness And turn to comfort me.

1886

To Him who made the great lights, For His lovingkindness is everlasting:

1887

But he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment, And it entered into his body like water And like oil into his bones.

1888

You set a boundary that they may not pass over, So that they will not return to cover the earth.

1889

Then they were glad because they were quiet, So He guided them to their desired haven.

1891

They pour forth words, they speak arrogantly; All who do wickedness vaunt themselves.

1892

He pours contempt upon princes And makes them wander in a pathless waste.

1893

When he is judged, let him come forth guilty, And let his prayer become sin.

1894

Let them give thanks to the LORD for His lovingkindness, And for His wonders to the sons of men!

1895

For we have been consumed by Your anger And by Your wrath we have been dismayed.

1896

For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, Nor were they faithful in His covenant.

1897

Make glad the soul of Your servant, For to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

1898

Fear and trembling come upon me, And horror has overwhelmed me.

1899

As for me, You uphold me in my integrity, And You set me in Your presence forever.

1900

How long will you assail a man, That you may murder him, all of you, Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?

1901

On account of the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, Let them even be caught in their pride, And on account of curses and lies which they utter.

1902

He is like a lion that is eager to tear, And as a young lion lurking in hiding places.

1903

Look upon my affliction and my trouble, And forgive all my sins.

1904
