The fire consumed their young men, and their maidens were not given to marriage. 65. Their priests were slain with the sword, and there were mo widows to make lamentation. 66 So the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a giant refreshed with wine. 67 He smote his enemies in the hinder parts, and put them to a perpetual shame. 68. He refused the tabernacle of J.9seph, and chose not the tribe

Psalm 80. Qui regis Israel. AR, O thou Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joh like a sheep; show thyself o, thou that sittest upon the lerubim : * Before Ephraim, Benjamin, 'Manasses, stir upthy strength, * come and help us. 3 Turn us again, O God; show * light of thy countenance, and shall be whole. 40 Lord God of hosts, how *g wilt thou be augry with thy ople that prayeth 2 5 Thou feedest them with the ead of tears, and givest them inteousness of tears to drink. 3.Thou hast made us a very ise unto our neighbours, and

our enemies laugh us to scorn. 7 Turn us again, thou God of hosts; show the fight of thy countenance, and we shall be whole. 8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. 9 Thou madest room for it; and when it had taken root, it filied the land. 10 The hilis were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedar trees. 11 She stretched out her branches unto the sea, and her boughs unto the river. 12 Why hast thou then broken down her hedge, that all they that go by pluck off her grapes 2 13 The wild boar out of the wood doth root it tip, and the wild beasts of the field devour it, 14 Turn thee again, thou God of hosts, look down from heaven, behold and visit this vine, 15 And the place of the vineyard that thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest so strong for thyself. 16 It is burnt with fire, and cut down; and they shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, and upon the son of man, whom thou madest so strong for thine own self. 18 And so will not we go back from thee: O let us live, and we shall call upon thy name. 19 Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts; show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.

new moon, even in the time ap-
pointed, and upon our solemn
feast day.

for Israel, and a law of the God
of Jacob.

for a testimony when he come
out of the laud of Egypt, and had
heard a strange language.
6 leased his shoulder from the
burden, and his hands were de-
livered from making the pots.
7 Thou calledst upon me in
troubles, and I delivered thee,
and heard thee what time as the
storm fell upon thee.
3 I proved thee also at the
waters of strife.
9 Hear, O my people; and I
will assure thee, O Israel, if thou
wilt hearken unto me
10 There shall no strange god
be in thee, neither shalt thou wor-
ship any other god.
il I am the Lord thy God, who
brought thee out of the land of
Egypt: open thy mouth wide.
and I shall fill it.
12 But my people would not
hear my voice; and Israel would
mot obey me:
13 So I gave them up unto
their own hearts' lusts, and let
them follow their own imagina-
tions.
14 O that my people would
have hearkened unto me; for if
Israel had walked in my ways,
15 I should soon have put down
their enemies, and turned my
hand against their adversaries.
16 The haters of the Lord
#hould have been found liars;

but their time should hot dured for ever. * * 17. He should have fed them also with the finest wheatio and with honey out of the stiff rock should I have satisfit to

275 of the Lord; my heart and my fiesh rejoice in the living God. 3 Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest, where she may lay her young; even thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. 4. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house; they will be alway praising thee. 5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are thy ways. 6 Who, going through the vale of niisery, use it for a well; and the pools are filled with water. 7 They will go from strength to strength, and unto the God of gods appeareth every one of them in Sion. 8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; hearken, O God of Jacob : 9 Behold, O God, our defender, and look upon the face of thine Anointed, 10 For one day in thy courts is better than a thousand. 1 ! I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of ungodliness. 12 For the Lord God is a light and defence; the Lord will give grace and wórship; and no good thing shall he withhold from them that live a godly life. 13 O Lord God of hosts, blessed is the Inan that putteth his trust in thee. Psalm 85. Benediristi, Domine. I ORD, thou art become gra* cious unto thy land; thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. 2 Thou hast forgiven the of. fence of thy people, and covered

all their sins.
3-Thqu hast taken away all thy

displeasure, and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation. 4 Turn us then, O God our Saviour, and let thine anger cease from us. 5 Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever ? and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another? 6 Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us, that thy people may rejoice in thee P 7 Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. 8 I will hearken what the Lord God will say concerning me; for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again. 9 For his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwels in our land. . ... 10 Mercy and truth are met together: righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11 Truth shall flourish out of the earth, and righteousness hath looked down from heaven. 12 Yea, the Lord shall show loving-kindness,and ourland shall give her increase, 13, Righteousness shall go before him, and he shall direct his going in the way, - The seventeenth Day.
