The wicked borroweth, and payeth | not -a ,

gain : But the righteous / shew-eth | mercy,—and |

giveth. For such as be blessed of him shall in herit

the earth; And they that be cursed of him-shall be

cut off. The steps of a good man are ordered | by-the

Lord : And he de light-eth in-his way. Though he fals, he shall not be utterly-cast |

I have been young, and now.-am | old ;
Yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor

his se—ed | beg-ging | bread.
He is ever | merciful-and | lendeth :
And-his seed—is | blessed.
Depart from evil, | and—do | good;
And dwell—for ev-er | more.
For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh |

not-his saints ; They are preserved for ever : but the seed of

the | wick-ed shall be-cut | off. The righteous shall in | herit the land, And dwell--there | in--for ever. The mouth of the righteous | speak-eth | wis

The law of his God is I in-his heart;
No ne--of his steps—shall slide.
The wicked / watcheth—the righteous,
A 1-nd seeketh—to slay him.

The Lord will not leave him in his hand, Nor condemn-him | when he-is | judged. Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he

shall exalt thee to inherit—the land : When the wicked are | cut-off, | thou—shalt /

I have seen the wicked in / gre—at | power,
And spreading him | self-like a | green-bay |

Mark the perfect man, and be | hold—the

upright: For the end-of that man—is | peace. But the transgressors shall be destroyed—to

But the salvation of the righteous 1 is of—the

Lord : He is their strength—in the time-of trouble. And the Lord shall help them, and deliver

them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save

HEAR this, | all-ye | people :


inhabitants of the world : both low and high, | rich—and poor,-together. My mouth shall speak—of wisdom n; And the meditation of my heart-shall |

be of—under | standing. I will incline mine ear—to a | parable : I will open my dark | saying-up | on-the |

and the brutish per—son perish, And | leave—their wealth-to others. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall

continue for ever, and their dwelling-places to

all-generations ; They call their | lands—after | their-own |

Nevertheless man being in honour a bid-eth |

in-the morning; And their beauty shall con sumein the |

grave—from their | dwelling.

But God will redeem my soul from the power

For when he dieth he shall carry | nothing

fathers : Th | ey-shall | never see | light. Man that is in honour, and under-standeth |

not, Is I like the beasts-that I perish.


MAKE a joyful noise unto God, | all-ye |

Through the greatness—of thy | power
Shall thine enemies sub mit-themselves |

Come and see the works-of God: He is terrible in his doing' | toward—the | children

There did we re I joice-in | him.
He ruleth | by—his | power-for ever :

O bless our | God,-ye | people,
And make the voice of his , prai-se / to-bel
