34 Whom have I in heaves but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire in comparison of thee. 35 My flesh and my heart faileth; but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever 36 For lo, they that forsake thee shall perish; thou hast destroyed all them that commit fornication against thee. 37 But it is good for me to hold me fast by God, to put my trust in the Lord God, and to speak of all thy works in the gates of the daughter of Sion. Psalm 74. Ut quid, Deus 2 God, wherefore art thou absent from us so long? why is thy wrath so hot against the sheep }. pasture ? 2 O think upon thy congregation, whom thou hast purchased, and redeemed of old. 3 Think upon the tribe of thine inheritance, and mount Sion, wherein thou hast dwelt. 4 Lift up thy feet, that thou mayestutterly destroy every enemy, which hath done evil in thy sanctuary. 5 Thine adversaries roar in the midst of thy congregations, and set up their banners for tokens. 6 He that howed timber afore out of the thick trees, was known to bring it to an excellent work; 7 But now they break down all the carved work thereof with axes and hammers, 8 They have set fire upon thy holy places, and have defiled the dwelling-place of thy name, even unto the ground. 9 Yea, they said in their hearts,

Let us make havock of them alto

Ay 15. 2 At Salem is his tabernacle, ld his dwelling in Sion. 3 There brake he the arrows the bow, the shield, the sword, ld the battle. 4 Thou art of more honour and ight than the hills of the robbers. 5 The proud are robbed ; they lve slept their sleep; and all the en whose hands were mighty, ave found nothing. 6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jabb, both the chariot and horse re fallen. 7 Thou, even thou art to be ared; and who may stand in ly sight, when thou art angry 8 Thou didst cause thy judglent to be heard from heaven: 1e earth trembled, and was still, 9 When God arose to judglent, and to help all the meek pon earth. 10 The fierceness of man shall irm to thy praise, and the fierceess of them shalt thou refrain. 11 Promise unto the Lord your }od, and keep it, all ye thai are ound about him; bring presents into him that ought to be feared. 12 He shall refrain the spirit of rinces, and is wonderful annong he kings of the earth. .

THE PSALTER. 269

5 I have considered the days of old, and the years that are past. 6 I call to remembrance my Song, and in the night I commune with mine own heart, and search out my spirits. 7. Will the Lord absent himself for ever; and will he be no more intreated 2 8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever ; and is his promise come utterly to an end for evermore ? 9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious; and will he shut up his loving-kindness in displeasure ? 10 And I said, It is mine own infirmity; but I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most Highest. 11 I will reinember the works of the Lord, and call to mind the wonders of old time. 12 I will think also of all thy works, and my talking shall be of thy doings. 13 Thy way, O God, is holy: who is so great a God as our God? 14 Thou art the God that doeth wonders, and hast declared thy power among the people. 15 Thou host mightily delivered thy people, even the sons of Jacob and Joseph. 16 The waters saw thee, C) God, the waters saw thee, and were afraid; the depths also were troubled. 17 The clouds poured out wa{er, the air thundered, and thine arrows went abroad. 18 The voice of thy thunderwas heard round about: the lightnings shone upon the ground; the earth was moved and shook withal. 10 Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the great waters, and thy foot-steps are not known. 20 Thou leddest thy people rock

mighty and wonderful works that he Fiath done. 5 He made a covenant with Jacob, and gave Israel a law, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children. 9 That their posterity might know it, and the children which were yet unborn ; 7 To the intent that when they came up, they might show their children the same ; 8 That they might put their trust in God; and not to forget the works of God, bat to keep his commandments; 9 And not to be as their forefathers, a faithless and stubborn generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit cleaveth not steadfastly unto God; 10 Like as the children of Ephraim ; who being harnessed, and carrying bows, turned themselves back in the day of battle. 11 They kept not the covenant of God, and would not walk in his law ; *But forgat what he had done, And the wonderful works that he "had showed for them.

were but flesh, and that they were even a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again. 41 Many a time did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieved him in the desert. 42 They turned back, and tempted God; and moved the Holy One in Israel. 43 They thought not of his hand, and of the day when he delivered them from the hand of the enemy. 44. How he had wrought his miracles in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan. 45 He turned their waters into blood, so that they might not drink of the rivers. 46. He sent lice among them, and devotired them up, and frogs to destroy them. 47 He gave their fruit unto the caserpillar, and their labour unto the grasshopper. 48 He destroyed their vines with hail-stones, and their mulberry trees with the frost. 49 He smote their cattle also with hail-stones, and their flocks with hot thunder-bolts. 50 He cast upon them the furiousness of his wrath, anger, displeasure, and trouble ; and sent evil angels among them. 51 He made a way to his indignation, and spared not their soul fron death ; but gave their life over to the pestilence; 52 And smote ail the first-born in Egypt, the most principal and mightiest in the dwellings of is a m. 53 But as for his own people, he led them forth like sheep, and carried them in the wilderness like a flock.
