JUDGE me,-0 God,
And plead my cause against | an-un | god—ly |

nation:
( de | livớer me
From the deceitful | an—d | un-just | man.

For thou art the God of—my | strength ;
Why dost—thou cast-me off ?
Why I go—I | mourning
Because of the op | pres—sion of—the enemy.

O send out thy | light and—thy | truth:
Let the-m | lead me;
Let them bring me unto thy | ho—ly | hill,
And | to—thy | ta-ber | nacles.

Then will I go unto the altar-of God,
Unto | God—my ex | ceed—ing Ijoy:
Yea, up | on-the | harp
Will I praise | thee,—0 | God-my | God.

Why art thou cast down, | 0my soul ?
And why art | thou—dis quieted—with | in me?
Ho | pe—in | God :
For I shall yet praise him, who is the health

of my | counten-ance, | and—my | God.

I SAID I will take heed to-my ways,
That I | sin—not | with—my | tongue :
I will keep my mouth-with a | bridle,
While the wick—ed | is—be | fore me.

I was dumb-with silence,
I held-my peace,
Even | fro -m | good;
And-my sorrow—was stirred.

My heart was | hot-with | in me,
Whil-le | I—was | musing
The fire burned :
Then | spake-I | with—my | tongue,

Lord, make me to know mine end, and the

measure of my days, / what—it | is; That I may I know-how | frail—I | am. Behold thou hast made my | days—as an |

handbreadth; And mine | age—is as nothing—be | fore thee;

Verily every man at his best state is | alto

gether | vanity. Surely every man | walk-eth | in a-vain | Surely they are dis quieted-in / vain : He heapeth up riches, and knoweth-not

who shall gather them,

show;

.

And now, Lord, what | wait-1 | for?
My ho-pe 1 is-in 'thee.
Deliver me from | all my_trans | gressions :
Make me not the re | proa-ch | of—the |

foolish,

I was dumb, I opened | not—my | mouth :
Be cau—se | th—ou | didst it.
Remove thy stroke a wa-y | from me:
I am consumed | by—the s'blow of—thine

hand.

When | thou—with re , bukes
Dost cor | re-ct | man—for in | iquity,
Thou makest his beauty to consume a | way-

like a moth:
Surely | ever-y | man-is | vanity.

Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear | unto

my | cry; Hold not-thy | peace at-my tears; For I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner,

as all my | fa—thers were. O spare me, that I may recover strength, before

I go | hence,-and | be—no | more.

HAVE mercy up / on me,-0 | God,
According | to—thy lov—ing | kindness :
According unto the multitude of thy | ten-der

mercies
Blo | t-out | my-trans / gressions.

Wash me throughly from | mine-in | iquity,
And cleanse-me from—my | sin.
For I acknowledge | my-trans | gressions :
And my sin-is ever-before me.

Against thee, thee only, have-I sinned,
And done this e-vil | in—thy | sight:
That thou mightest be justified | when-thou |

speakest,
And be clea—r | when—thou I judgest.

Behold, I was / shapen-in in | iquity;
And in sin—did my mother-conceive me.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the l'in—ward |

parts : And in the hidden part thou shalt | make

me to I kno-w | wisdom.

snow.

Purge me with hyssop, and I–shall be clean;
Wash me, and I I-shall be / whiter-than
Make me to hear | joy—and | gladness ;
That the bones which thou hast | bro-ken /

may-re 1 joice.

Hide thy | face from—my | sins,
And blot-out all-mine iniquities.
Create in me a clean | heart,-0 God;
And re | new a-right | spirit—with | in me.
Cast me not away from—thy | presence ;
And take not thy holy | Spi-rit | from me.
Restore unto me the joy of thy-salvation;
And uphold | me—with | thy-free | Spirit.
Then will I teach transgressors--thy ways;
And sinners shall be con | vert—ed | un—to |

thee. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God

of my-salvation ; And my tongue shall sing a | loud of—thy |

righteous | ness.
O Lord, open thou—my | lips ;
And my mouth shall-show I forth—thy | praise.
For thou desirest not sacrifice ; | else would-I|

give it:
Thou de | lightest—not | in-burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a bro—ken | spirit:
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, -thou

wilt not-des pise.
Do good in thy good pleasure | un—to | Zion :
Build | thou—the walls of–Jerusalem.
Then shalt thou—be pleased
With the sacri | fices—of righteousness,
With burnt offering and 1 whole — burnt |

offering; Then shall they offer | bullocks—up | onthine |

altar.
