3 But thou, O JEHOVAH! art to me a shield ; thou art my glory, and the raiser up of mine head.
4 I call upon JEHOVAH with my voice; and he heareth me from his holy mountain.
5 I lic down, I sleep, I awake again ; for JEHOVAH sustaineth me.
6 I am not afraid of the myriads of people who set themselves against me on all sides.
7 Arise, o JEHOVAH ! save me, my GOD! for thou canst smite the jaws of all mine enemies; thou canst break the teeth of the wicked,
8. Deliverance cometh from JEHOVAH : may thy blessing, O JEHOVAH ! be upon thy people!
HEAR me, when I invoke thee, O JEHOVAH! the protector of mine innocence ! thou art wont to relieve me when I have been in distress ; have mercy upon ine, and hear my prayer.
2 Ye sons of men ! how long will ye asperse my reputation ? how long will ye L 3
5 love delusion, and seek after disappointment?
3 Know that JEHOVAH distinguisheth the righteous man : when I call upon ygHOVAH, he heareth me.
4 Stand in awe, and commit not the sin that is in your hearts; consider this upon your beds, and be quiet.
5 Offer the sacrifice of righteousness and place your trust in JEHOVAH.
6 But many of you say : “Who will show us plenty ?"
7 O JEHOVAH! the light of thy countenance hath greatly shone upon us,
8 Thou makest mine heart. more glad than theirs is, even when their corn, and wine, and oil are increased.
9 I will lie down to rest, and sleep in peace; for thou alone, o JEHOVAH! canst make me to repose in safety.
Give ear, O JEHOVAH ! unto my words; consider my complaints :
2 Hearken thou unto my lamentation, my king, and my God! for unto thee I make my prayer.
3 Early in the morning, O JEHOVAH ! thou hearest my voice ; carly in the morning I look up, and direct my prayer unto thee :
4 For thou art not a God that favourest the wicked: the evil-doer cannot dwell with thee :
5 Arrogant boasters cannot stand in thy sight; thou hatest all those who work iniquity :
6 Thou destroyest those who speak lies; JEHOVAH abhorreth the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.
7 But as for me, through thine exceeding favour, I will re-enter into thine house; and, with reverence, will. I worship in thy holy temple.
8 Conduct me, O JEHOVAH ! according to thy justice ; make thy way plain before me, because of mine enemies :
9 For there is no truth in their mouths; inwardly they are all depravity :
10. They speak smoothly with their; tongues ; while their throats are open sepulchres.
11 Hold them guilty, o God! let them fall by their own counsels : cast then
off because of the multitude of their of. fences, for they rebel against thee.
12 Then will all, who trust in thee, rejoice ; they will ever be giving thanks, because thou, O JEHOVAH! defendest them.
13 All those who love thy naine will be joyful in thce : because thou, O JEHOVAH! blessest the righteous man ; and encoinpassest him with thy favourable kindness as with a shield.
REPROVE me not, O JEHOVAH ! in thine indignation ; neither chasten me in thy great displeasure.
2 Have mercy upon me, O JEHOVAH ! for I am weak; heal me, O JEHOVAH! for my bones are troubled.
3 My soul also is exceedingly troubled: yet, o JEHOVAH ! how long wilt thou delay to belp me?
4 Return, O JEHOVAH! and relieve my soul ; oh, save me for thy mercy's sake!
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee; and, in the grave, who shall celebrate thcc ?
6 I am exhausted by any groans; every night I bedew my bed, and deluge my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eyes are wasted with grief; they are grown dim with weeping, because of mine adversaries,
8 Depart from me, all ye who work iniquity; for JEHOVAH hath heard
9 JEHOVAH hath listened to my supplication : JEHOVAH bath accepted my prayer.
10 All mine enemies shall be abashed and confounded; they shall be turned back, and be put to shame suddenly.
O JEHOVAH! my God! in thee I place my trust; save and deliver ine from all mine enemies :
z Lest, like a lion, they seize me for their prey,
while there is none to save and deliver me.
3 O JEHOVAH ! my God! if I have done this—if the iniquity, with which I am charged, be in mine hands :
4 It I have repaid friendship with evil, or molested mine eneiny without cause :
