He shall spare the poor-and needy,
And shall save—the souls of the needy.
He shall redeem their soul from de ceit—and |

violence : And precious shall their | blood—be | in-his


And he-shall live,
And to him shall be given—of the gold-of |

Sheba :
Prayer also shall be made for him-con

And | daily-shall | he—be praised.

There shall be an handful of | corn-in the 1

earth Upon the top of-the mountains ; The fruit thereof shall shake-like Lebanon : And they of the city shall | flourish-like

grass-of the earth.

His name shall en dure—for ever:
His name shall be continued—as | long as-

the sun :
And men shall be blessed—in him :
All | nations-shall | call-him blessed.

Blessed be the Lord God, the God-of Israel,
Who only | do-eth | won-drous things.
And blessed be his glorious name--for ever:
And let the whole earth be filled with his glory. I

TRULY God is good—to | Israel,
Even to such as are—of | a-clean | heart.
But as for me, my feet were almost gone;
My | stepshad well-nigh | slipped.

For I was envious at-the foolish,
When I saw the-pros | perity of the

For there are no | bands in their death;
Bu t-their strength-is | firm.


They are not in trouble as other | men; Neither are they | plagued-like | oth—er | Therefore pride compasseth them a | bout as

achain; Violence cover-eth | them—as a | garment.

Their eyes

stand | out with fatness : They have more-than | heart—could wish. They are corrupt, and speak wickedly con 1

cerning--op pression; The 1 -ý | spea-k | loftily.

They set their mouth against—the heavens ; And their tongue I walk-eth | through-the

earth. Therefore his people re | tu-rn | hither : And waters of a full cup--are wrung | out

to them,

And they say, How doth-God know?
And is there | knowledge | in the-Most |

Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper--

in the world; The ly-increase-in | riches.

Verily I have cleansed my heart--in vain,
And | washed—my | hands-in | innocency.
For all the day long have | I–been | plagued,
And chasten-ed every morning.

If I say, I will-speak | thus;
Behold, I should offend against the gener | a-

tion of-thy children.
When I | thought to-know | this,
It / wastoo | pain—ful | for me,

Until I went into the sanctuary—of God;
Then under-stood I—their end.
Surely thou didst set them in | slip-pery |

places : Thou castedst them do—wn | into-destruc


How are they brought into desolation, as in

al moment ! They are utterly-consumed—with terrors. As a dream when one-awaketh; So, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou | shalt

des pise—their | image.

Thus my heart-was | grieved,
And I was priek-edin-my reins.
So foolish was | 1,—and | ignorant :
I was—as a | beast—be | fore thee.

Nevertheless, I am con | tiru-ally with thee:
Thou hast holden | me—by | my-right | hand.
Thou shalt guide me with-thy | counsel,
And afterward recei—ve | me—to | glory.

Whom have I in heaven-but thee?
And there is none upon earth that | I–de

sire-be | side thee. My flesh and my hea—rt | faileth : But God is the strength of my heart, and my i

po—r | tion--for ever.

For, lo, they that are far from 1 thee-shall |

perish : Thou hast destroyed all them that I go-a |

whor-ing | from thee. But it is good for me to draw | near-to God : I have put my trust in the Lord God, that | I

may declare-all thy | works.


BOW down thine ear, 0 | Lo—rd, hear me;
For I-am | poor-and needy.
Preserve my soul, for I-am | holy:
O thou my God, save thy | servant—that I

trust-eth in thee.
Be merciful unto me,- | Lord :
For I | cr-y | unto-thee | daily.
Rejoice the soul of-thy | servant:
For unto thee, O Lord, do—I | lift up--my i

soul. For thou, | Lord,-art | good, And ready | to—for give; And | plenteous—in | mercy Unto all | them—that | call-up / on thee. Give ear, O Lord, , unto—my | prayer ; And attend to the voice—of my | sup-pli |

cations. In the day of my trouble I will | call—up |

on thee; For thou-wilt an-swer | me. A | mong—the gods There is none like-unto thee,-0 | Lord : Neither are there | a-ny | works Lil-ke unto-thy | works. All nations whom thou hast made shall come

and worship be | fore thee,-0 | Lord; And shall | glo—ri | fy-thy | name. For thou art great, and doest won-drous

things : Th | ou-art | God-a | lone.
