6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes ;

7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek : the Philistines; with the inhabitants of Tyre;

8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

9 Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison;

10 Which perished at En-dor : they became as dung for the earth.

11 Make their nobles like Oreb and like Zeeb; yea, all their princes as Zabah and, as Zalmunna.

12 Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

13 O my God, make them like a wheel ; as the stubble before the wind.

14 As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire,

15 So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.

16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O Lord.

17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish :

18 That men may know that thou, whose

name alone is JEHOVAH, art the Most High over all the earth.

PSALM LXXXIV.

[ocr errors]

OW amiable are thy tabernacles, o

Lord of hosts! 2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God,

3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.

4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house ; they will be still praising thee. Selah.

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them :

6 Who passing through the valley of Baca, make it a well : the rain also fiileth

the pools.

7 They go from strength to strength; every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer ; ve ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

[ocr errors]

9 Behold, O God, our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.

10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a door-keeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness,

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee,

PSALM LXXXV.

ORD, thou hast been favourable unto

thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people; thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.

3 Thou hast taken away all thy wrath : thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.

4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger towards us to cease.

6 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all

generations ?

6 Wilt thou not revive us again ; that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7 Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.

8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints : but let them not turn again to folly.

9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.

10 Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11 Truth shall spring out of the earth ; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good: and our land shall yield her in

13 Righteousness shall go before him, and shall set us in the way of his steps.

MORNING PRAYER.

PSALM LXXXVI.

Bm

W down thine ear, O Lord, hear

me ; for I am poor and needy. 2 Preserve my soul, for I am holy: 0 thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.

3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily.

4 Rejoice the soul of thy servant : for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.

5 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

6 Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer ; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee; for thou wilt answer me.

8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord ; neither are there any works like unto thy works.

9 All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
