he would have none of me.
12 So to the luft of their own hearts

I them delivered,
And then in counsels of their own

they vainly wandered.
13 O that my people had me heard,

Isra'l my ways had chose : 14

I had their en’mies soon fubdu'd,

my hand turn'd on their foes. 15 The haters of the Lord to him

submission would have feign'd ; But as for them, their time should have

for evermore remain'd. 16 He should have also fed them with

the finest of the wheat :
Of hony from the rock thy fill
I should have made thee eat.

N gods assembly God doth stand :

he judgeth gods among.
2 How long, accepting perlons vile,

will ye give judgment wrong? 3 Defend the poor and fatherlels,

to poor opprest do right.
The poor and needy ones set free,

rid them from ill mens might. 5 They know not, nor will understand;

in darkness they walk on : All the foundations of the earth

out of their course are gone. 6 I said, that you are gods, and are

sons of the Highest all : 7 But ye

fhall die like men, and as one of the princes fall. 8 O God, do thou raise up thy felf,

the earth to judgment call : For thou, as thine inheritance, thalt take the nations all.

Eep not,

O God, we thee intreat,

Okeep not filence now :
Do thou not hold thy peace, O God,

and still no more be thou.
2 For lo, thine enemies a noise

tumultuously have made : And they that haters are of thee,

have lifted up the head. 3 Against thy cholen people they

do crafty counsel take: And they against thy hidden ones

do consultations make. 4 Come, let us cut them off, said they,

from being a nation, That of the name of Isra'l may

no more be mention. 5 For with joynt heart they plot,in league

against thee they combine. 6 The tents of Edom, Ishma’lites,

Moab's and Hagar's line. 7 Gebal, and Ammon, Amalek,

Philistines, those of Tyre, 8 And Affur joyn’d with them, to help

Lot's children they conspire. 9 Do to them as to Midian,

Jabin at Kilon strand; 10 And Sisera which at Endor fell,

as dung to fa: the land. 11 Like Oreb and like Zeeb make

their noble men to fall; Like Zeba and Zalmunna-like,

make thou their princes all. 12 Who said, For our possession

yea, faints thy courts to fee : My very heart and fiesh cry out,

O living God, for thee. 3 Behold, the sparrow findeth out

an house wherein to relt, The swallow also for her felf

O Jacob's God, give ear. 9 See, God our shield, look on the face

of thine anointed dear, 10 For in thy courts one day excels

a thousand ; rather in My God's house will I keep a door,

than dwell in tents of fin. u For God the Lord's a fun and shield,

to his folk he'll speak peace, And to his saints ; but let them not

I will beat down before his face

I will them greatly plague who do

24 My mercy and my faithfulness

with him yet still shall be :
And in my name his horn and pow'r

men shall exaited fee.
25 His hand and pow'r shall reach afar,

I'll let it in the sea,
And his right hand established

shall in the rivers be.
26 Thou art my father, he shall cry,

thou art my God alone :
And he shall iay, Thou art the rock

of my salvation.

my cov'nant fait shall Itand.
29 His feed I by my pow'r will make

for ever to endure:
And, as the days of heav'n, his throne

shall ftable be apd sure.
30 But if his children shall forsake

my laws, and go astray,
And in my judgments shall not walk,

but wander from my way: 31 If they my laws break, and do not

keep my commandements; 32 I'll visit then their faults with rods,

their fins with chastilements. 33 Yet I'll not take my love from him,

nor falle my promise make. ·34 My cov’oant I'll not break, nor change
