8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen" violence and strife in the city.

10 Day and night they go about it, upon the walls thereof; mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.

11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof; deceit and guile depart not from her streets.

12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him;

13 But it was thou,d a man y mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.


14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company; 15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into n hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. 16 Ash for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.

17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud; and he shall hear my voice.

18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were manym with me.

19 God shall hear and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes," therefore they fear not God." 20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him; he hath A broken his covenant.

21 The words of his mouth were smoother

22 Castr thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

BE merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow " me up: he fighting daily, oppresseth me.

2 Mine xenemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against O thou Most High.


3 What time I am afraid," I will trust in thee.

4 In God I will praise his_word; in God I have put my trust:* I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

5 Every day they wrest my words:" all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

7 Shall they escape by iniquity ? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book pd

9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

BE merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in will I make my refuge, until these calathee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings mities be overpast.

2 I will cry unto God Most High; unto God that performeth all things for me.

5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net' for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah. 7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise.

8 Awake up, my glory; awake psaltery and harp; I myself will awake early.

9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing unto thee among the nations.

To the chief Musician, v Al-taschith, Michtam of David. Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, 0 ye sons of men?

2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth. 3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

7 Let them melty away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away; like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips; for who, say they, doth hear?

4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly x shall they be wounded.

3 I am weary of my crying; my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

4 Theyd that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

5 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.

6 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my let not those that seek thee be consake; founded for my sake, O God of Israel. 7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach: shame hath covered my face. 8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.

Messiah's sufferings and triumphs. PSALMS, LXX., LXXI. Confidence and thanksgiving.

4 Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

10 When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach. 11 I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.


12 They that sit in the gate speak against and I was the song of the B drunkards. 13 But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptabled time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

14 Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

15 Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

16 Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn' unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.

18 Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me, because of mine enemies. 19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.

20 Reproach hath broken my heart, and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to Stake pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

21 They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink. 22 Let" their table become a snare before them and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.

23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they w see not; and make their loins continually to shake.

24 Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them. 25 Let their habitation bey desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.

26 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.

27 Add iniquity unto their iniquity; and let them not come into thy righteousness.

28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written' with the righteous. 29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

30 I will praise the name of God witha song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God. 33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.

34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein. 35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah; that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it; and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
