10 O hide not thou thy face from me : nor cast thy servant away in displeasure.
11 Thou hast been my succour : leave me not, nei. ther forsake me, O God of my salvation.
12 When my father and my mother forsake më : the Lord taketh me up.
13 Teach me thy way, O Lord : and lead me in the right way, because of mine enemies.
14 Deliver me not over into the will of mine adver. saries : for there are false witnesses risen up against me, and such as speak wrong.
15 I should utterly have fainted : but that I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
16 O tarry thou the Lord's leisure : be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart; and put thou thy trust in the Lord.
PSALM 28. Ad te, Domine.
, thou hearest not, I become like them that go down into the pit.
2 Hear the voice of my humble petitions, when I cry unto thee : when I hold up my hands towards the mercy-seat of thy holy temple.
3 O pluck me not away, neither destroy me with the ungodly and wicked doers : which speak friendly to their neighbours, but imagine mischief in their hearts.
4 Reward them according to their deeds : and ac. cording to the wickedness of their own inventions.
5 Recompense them after the work of their hands : pay them that they have deserved.
6 For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands : therefore shall he break them down, and not build them up.
7 Praised be the Lord : for he hath heard the voice of my humble petitions,
8 The Lord is my strength, and my shield; my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped : therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him.
9 The Lord is my strength : and he is the wholesome defence of his Anointed.
10 O save thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance : feed them, and set them up for ever.
PSALM 29. Afferte Domino.
rams unto the Lord : ascribe unto the Lord wor. ship and strength.
2 Give the Lord the honour due unto his Name : worship the Lord with holy worship:
3 It is the Lord, that commandeth the waters : it is the glorious God, that maketh the thunder.
4 It is the Lord, that ruleth the sea; the voice of the Lord is mighty in operation : the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice.
5 The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedar-trees : yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Libanus.
6'He maketh them also to skip like a calf : Libanus also, and Sirion, like a young unicorn.
7 The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire; the voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness : yea, the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Cades.
8 The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to bring forth young, and discovereth the thick bushes : in his temple doth every man speak of his honour.
9 The Lord sitteth above the water-flood : and the Lord remaineth a King for ever.
10 The Lord shall give strength unto his people : the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.
PSALM 30. Exaltabo te, Domine, I .
WILL magnify thee, O Lord, for thou hast set me 20 Lord my God, I cried unto thee : and thou hast healed me.
3 Thou, Lord, hast brought my soul out of hell: thou hast kept my life from them that go down to the pit.
4 Sing praises unto the Lord, Oye saints of his : and give thanks unto him for a remembrance of his holi. ness.
5 For his wrath endureth but the twinkling of an eye, and in his pleasure is life : heaviness may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be re. moved : thou, Lord, of thy goodness hast made my hill so strong.
7 Thou didst turn thy face from me : and I was troubled.
8 Then cried I unto thee, O Lord : and gat me to my Lord right humbly.
9 What profit is there in my blood : when I down to the pit?
10 Shall the dust give thanks unto thee : or shall it declare thy truth?
11 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me : Lord, be thou my helper.
12 Thou hast turned my heaviness into joy : thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with glad. ness.
13 Therefore shall every good man sing of thy praise without ceasing : O my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
PSALM 31. In te, Domine, speravi. N thee, O Lord, have I put my trust : let me never
2 Bow down thine ear to me : make haste to deliver me.
3 And be thou my strong rock, and house of de. fence : that thou mayest save me.
4 For thou art my strong rock, and my castle : be thou
also my guide, and lead me for thy Name's sake. 5 Draw me out of the net, that they have laid privily for me : for thou art my strength.
6 Into thy hands I commend my spirit : for thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, thou God of truth.
7 I have hated them that hold of superstitious vanj. ties : and my trust hath been in the Lord.
8 I will be glad, and rejoice in thy mercy : for thou hast considered my trouble, and hast known my soul in adversities.
9 Thou hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy : but hast set my feet in a large room.
10 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trou. ble : and mine eye is consumed for very heaviness; yea, my soul and my body.
ií For my life is waxen old with heaviness : and my years with mourning.
12 My strength faileth me, because of mine iniquity: and my bones are consumed.
13 I became a reproof among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours : and they of mine acquaintance were afraid of me; and they that did see me without conveyed themselves from me. .
14 I am clean forgotten, as a dead man out of mind : I am become like a broken vessel.
15 For I have heard the blasphemy of the multitude: and fear is on every side, while they conspire together against me, and take their counsel to take away my life.
16 But my hope hath been in thee, O Lord : I have said, Thou art my God.
17 My time is in thy hand; deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
18 Shew thy servant the light of thy countenance : and save me for thy mercy's sake.
19 Let me not be confounded, O Lord, for I have called upon thee : let the ungodly be put to confusion, and be put to silence in the grave,
20 Let the lying lips be put to silence : which cruel. ly, disdainfully, and despitefully, speak against the righteous.
21 O how plentiful is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee : and that thou hast prepared for them that put their trust in thee, even before the sons of men !
22 Thou shalt hide them privily by thine own presence from the provoking of all men : thou shalt keep them secretly in thy tabernacle from the strife of tongues.
23 Thanks be to the Lord : for he hath shewed me marvellous great kindness in a strong city.
24 And when I made haste, I said: I am cast out of the sight of thine eyes.
25 Nevertheless, thou heardest the voice of my prayer : when I cried unto thee.
26 O love the Lord, all ye his saints : for the Lord preserveth them that are faithful, and plenteously rewardeth the proud doer.
27 Be strong, and he shall establish your heart : all ye that put your trust in the Lord.
BLES SHEDSes she whose reaighteousness is forgiven :
and whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth no sin : and in whose spirit there is no guile.
8 For while I held my tongue : my bones consumed away through my daily complaining.
4 For thy hand is heavy upon me day and night": and my moisture is like the drought in summer.
5 I will acknowledge my sin unto thee : and mine unrighteousness have I not hid.
6 I said, I will confess my sins unto the Lord : and so thou forgavest the wickedness of my sin.
7 For this shall every one that is godly make his prayer unto thee, in a time when thou mayest be found : but in the great water-floods they shall not come nigh him.
8 Thou art a place to hide me in, thou shalt preserve me from trouble : thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance,
9 I will inform thee, and teach thee in the way wherein thou shalt go : and I will guide thee with mine eye.
10 Be ye not like to horse and mule, which have no understanding : whose mouths must be held with bit and bridle, lest they fall upon thee,
11 Great plagues remain for the ungodly : but who. so putteth his trust in the Lord, mercy embraceth him on every side.
12 Be glad, O ye righteous, and rejoice in the Lord : and be joyful, all ye that are true of heart.
PSALM 33. Exultate, justi. EJOICE in the Lord, O ye righteous : for it be2 Praise the Lord with harp : sing praises unto him with the lute, and instrument of ten strings.
3 Sing unto the Lord a new song : sing praises lustily unto him with a good courage.
4 For the word of the Lord is true : and all his works are faithful.
5 He loveth righteousness and judgement; the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made : and all the hosts of them by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together, as it were upon an heap : and layeth up the deep, as in a treasure-house.
8 Let all the earth fear the Lord : stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world.
9 For he spake, and it was done : he commanded, and it stood fast.
