Psalm 101

[1]I will sing of lovingkindness and justice: Unto thee, O Jehovah, will I sing praises. [2]I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way: Oh when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. [3]I will set no base thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; It shall not cleave unto me. [4]A perverse heart shall depart from me: I will know no evil thing. [5]Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I destroy: Him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer. [6]Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: He that walketh in a perfect way, he shall minister unto me. [7]He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes. [8]Morning by morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land; To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of Jehovah.

Psalm 102

[1]Hear my prayer, O Jehovah, And let my cry come unto thee. [2]Hide not thy face from me in the day of my distress: Incline thine ear unto me; In the day when I call answer me speedily. [3]For my days consume away like smoke, And my bones are burned as a firebrand. [4]My heart is smitten like grass, and withered; For I forget to eat my bread. [5]By reason of the voice of my groaning My bones cleave to my flesh. [6]I am like a pelican of the wilderness; I am become as an owl of the waste places. [7]I watch, and am become like a sparrow That is alone upon the house-top. [8]Mine enemies reproach me all the day; They that are mad against me do curse by me. [9]For I have eaten ashes like bread, And mingled my drink with weeping, [10]Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: For thou hast taken me up, and cast me away. [11]My days are like a shadow that declineth; And I am withered like grass.

[12]But thou, O Jehovah, wilt abide for ever; And thy memorial [name] unto all generations. [13]Thou wilt arise, and have mercy upon Zion; For it is time to have pity upon her, Yea, the set time is come. [14]For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, And have pity upon her dust. [15]So the nations shall fear the name of Jehovah, And all the kings of the earth thy glory. [16]For Jehovah hath built up Zion; He hath appeared in his glory. [17]He hath regarded the prayer of the destitute, And hath not despised their prayer. [18]This shall be written for the generation to come; And a people which shall be created shall praise Jehovah. [19]For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; From heaven did Jehovah behold the earth; [20]To hear the sighing of the prisoner; To loose those that are appointed to death; [21]That men may declare the name of Jehovah in Zion, And his praise in Jerusalem; [22]When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve Jehovah.

[23]He weakened my strength in the way; He shortened my days. [24]I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: Thy years are throughout all generations. [25]Of old didst thou lay the foundation of the earth; And the heavens are the work of thy hands. [26]They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; As a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed: [27]But thou art the same, And thy years shall have no end. [28]The children of thy servants shall continue, And their seed shall be established before thee.

Psalm 103

[1]Bless Jehovah, O my soul; And all that is within me, [bless] his holy name. [2]Bless Jehovah, O my soul, And forget not all his benefits: [3]Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases; [4]Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; [5]Who satisfieth thy desire with good things, [So that] thy youth is renewed like the eagle. [6]Jehovah executeth righteous acts, And judgments for all that are oppressed. [7]He made known his ways unto Moses, His doings unto the children of Israel. [8]Jehovah is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness. [9]He will not always chide; Neither will he keep [his anger] for ever. [10]He hath not dealt with us after our sins, Nor rewarded us after our iniquities. [11]For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is his lovingkindness toward them that fear him. [12]As far as the east is from the west, So far hath he removed our transgressions from us. [13]Like as a father pitieth his children, So Jehovah pitieth them that fear him. [14]For he knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust. [15]As for man, his days are as grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. [16]For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; And the place thereof shall know it no more. [17]But the lovingkindness of Jehovah is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, And his righteousness unto children's children; [18]To such as keep his covenant, And to those that remember his precepts to do them. [19]Jehovah hath established his throne in the heavens; And his kingdom ruleth over all. [20]Bless Jehovah, ye his angels, That are mighty in strength, that fulfil his word, Hearkening unto the voice of his word. [21]Bless Jehovah, all ye his hosts, Ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. [22]Bless Jehovah, all ye his works, In all places of his dominion: Bless Jehovah, O my soul.

Psalm 104

[1]Bless Jehovah, O my soul. O Jehovah my God, thou art very great; Thou art clothed with honor and majesty: [2]Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain; [3]Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters; Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh upon the wings of the wind; [4]Who maketh winds his messengers; Flames of fire his ministers; [5]Who laid the foundations of the earth, That it should not be moved for ever. [6]Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a vesture; The waters stood above the mountains. [7]At thy rebuke they fled; At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away [8](The mountains rose, the valleys sank down) Unto the place which thou hadst founded for them. [9]Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; That they turn not again to cover the earth. [10]He sendeth forth springs into the valleys; They run among the mountains; [11]They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild asses quench their thirst. [12]By them the birds of the heavens have their habitation; They sing among the branches. [13]He watereth the mountains from his chambers: The earth is filled with the fruit of thy works. [14]He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, And herb for the service of man; That he may bring forth food out of the earth, [15]And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, [And] oil to make his face to shine, And bread that strengtheneth man's heart. [16]The trees of Jehovah are filled [with moisture], The cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted; [17]Where the birds make their nests: As for the stork, the fir-trees are her house. [18]The high mountains are for the wild goats; The rocks are a refuge for the conies. [19]He appointed the moon for seasons: The sun knoweth his going down. [20]Thou makest darkness, and it is night, Wherein all the beasts of the forest creep forth. [21]The young lions roar after their prey, And seek their food from God. [22]The sun ariseth, they get them away, And lay them down in their dens. [23]Man goeth forth unto his work And to his labor until the evening. [24]O Jehovah, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: The earth is full of thy riches. [25]Yonder is the sea, great and wide, Wherein are things creeping innumerable, Both small and great beasts. [26]There go the ships; There is leviathan, whom thou hast formed to play therein. [27]These wait all for thee, That thou mayest give them their food in due season. [28]Thou givest unto them, they gather; Thou openest thy hand, they are satisfied with good. [29]Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled; Thou takest away their breath, they die, And return to their dust. [30]Thou sendest forth thy Spirit, they are created; And thou renewest the face of the ground. [31]Let the glory of Jehovah endure for ever; Let Jehovah rejoice in his works: [32]Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke. [33]I will sing unto Jehovah as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have any being. [34]Let thy meditation be sweet unto him: I will rejoice in Jehovah. [35]Let sinners be consumed out of the earth. And let the wicked be no more. Bless Jehovah, O my soul. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 105

[1]Oh give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name; Make known among the peoples his doings. [2]Sing unto him, sing praises unto him; Talk ye of all his marvelous works. [3]Glory ye in his holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek Jehovah. [4]Seek ye Jehovah and his strength; Seek his face evermore. [5]Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth, [6]O ye seed of Abraham his servant, Ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones. [7]He is Jehovah our God: His judgments are in all the earth. [8]He hath remembered his covenant for ever, The word which he commanded to a thousand generations, [9][The covenant] which he made with Abraham, And his oath unto Isaac, [10]And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a statute, To Israel for an everlasting covenant, [11]Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, The lot of your inheritance; [12]When they were but a few men in number, Yea, very few, and sojourners in it. [13]And they went about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. [14]He suffered no man to do them wrong; Yea, he reproved kings for their sakes, [15][Saying], Touch not mine anointed ones, And do my prophets no harm. [16]And he called for a famine upon the land; He brake the whole staff of bread. [17]He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a servant: [18]His feet they hurt with fetters: He was laid in [chains of] iron, [19]Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of Jehovah tried him. [20]The king sent and loosed him; Even the ruler of peoples, and let him go free. [21]He made him lord of his house, And ruler of all his substance; [22]To bind his princes at his pleasure, And teach his elders wisdom. [23]Israel also came into Egypt; And Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham. [24]And he increased his people greatly, And made them stronger than their adversaries. [25]He turned their heart to hate his people, To deal subtly with his servants. [26]He sent Moses his servant, [And] Aaron whom he had chosen. [27]They set among them his signs, And wonders in the land of Ham. [28]He sent darkness, and made it dark; And they rebelled not against his words. [29]He turned their waters into blood, And slew their fish. [30]Their land swarmed with frogs In the chambers of their kings. [31]He spake, and there came swarms of flies, And lice in all their borders. [32]He gave them hail for rain, [And] flaming fire in their land. [33]He smote their vines also and their fig-trees, And brake the trees of their borders. [34]He spake, and the locust came, And the grasshopper, and that without number, [35]And did eat up every herb in their land, And did eat up the fruit of their ground. [36]He smote also all the first-born in their land, The chief of all their strength. [37]And he brought them forth with silver and gold; And there was not one feeble person among his tribes. [38]Egypt was glad when they departed; For the fear of them had fallen upon them. [39]He spread a cloud for a covering, And fire to give light in the night. [40]They asked, and he brought quails, And satisfied them with the bread of heaven. [41]He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; They ran in the dry places [like] a river. [42]For he remembered his holy word, [And] Abraham his servant. [43]And he brought forth his people with joy, [And] his chosen with singing. [44]And he gave them the lands of the nations; And they took the labor of the peoples in possession: [45]That they might keep his statutes, And observe his laws. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 106

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; For his lovingkindness [endureth] forever. [2]Who can utter the mighty acts of Jehovah, Or show forth all his praise? [3]Blessed are they that keep justice, And he that doeth righteousness at all times. [4]Remember me, O Jehovah, with the favor that thou bearest unto thy people; Oh visit me with thy salvation, [5]That I may see the prosperity of thy chosen, That I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, That I may glory with thine inheritance.

[6]We have sinned with our fathers, We have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. [7]Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; They remembered not the multitude of thy lovingkindnesses, But were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea. [8]Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, That he might make his mighty power to be known. [9]He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up: So he led them through the depths, as through a wilderness. [10]And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, And redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. [11]And the waters covered their adversaries; There was not one of them left. [12]Then believed they his words; They sang his praise. [13]They soon forgat his works; They waited not for his counsel, [14]But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert. [15]And he gave them their request, But sent leanness into their soul. [16]They envied Moses also in the camp, [And] Aaron the saint of Jehovah. [17]The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And covered the company of Abiram. [18]And a fire was kindled in their company; The flame burned up the wicked. [19]They made a calf in Horeb, And worshipped a molten image. [20]Thus they changed their glory For the likeness of an ox that eateth grass. [21]They forgat God their Saviour, Who had done great things in Egypt, [22]Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [And] terrible things by the Red Sea. [23]Therefore he said that he would destroy them, Had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy [them]. [24]Yea, they despised the pleasant land, They believed not his word, [25]But murmured in their tents, And hearkened not unto the voice of Jehovah. [26]Therefore he sware unto them, That he would overthrow them in the wilderness, [27]And that he would overthrow their seed among the nations, And scatter them in the lands. [28]They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor, And ate the sacrifices of the dead. [29]Thus they provoked him to anger with their doings; And the plague brake in upon them. [30]Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment; And so the plague was stayed. [31]And that was reckoned unto him for righteousness, Unto all generations for evermore. [32]They angered him also at the waters of Meribah, So that it went ill with Moses for their sakes; [33]Because they were rebellious against his spirit, And he spake unadvisedly with his lips. [34]They did not destroy the peoples, As Jehovah commanded them, [35]But mingled themselves with the nations, And learned their works, [36]And served their idols, Which became a snare unto them. [37]Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto demons, [38]And shed innocent blood, Even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, Whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood. [39]Thus were they defiled with their works, And played the harlot in their doings. [40]Therefore was the wrath of Jehovah kindled against his people, And he abhorred his inheritance. [41]And he gave them into the hand of the nations; And they that hated them ruled over them. [42]Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were brought into subjection under their hand. [43]Many times did he deliver them; But they were rebellious in their counsel, And were brought low in their iniquity. [44]Nevertheless he regarded their distress, When he heard their cry: [45]And he remembered for them his covenant, And repented according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses. [46]He made them also to be pitied Of all those that carried them captive. [47]Save us, O Jehovah our God, And gather us from among the nations, To give thanks unto thy holy name, And to triumph in thy praise. [48]Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye Jehovah.


BOOK V


Psalm 107

[1]O give thanks unto Jehovah; For he is good; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [2]Let the redeemed of Jehovah say [so], Whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the adversary, [3]And gathered out of the lands, From the east and from the west, From the north and from the south.

[4]They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way; They found no city of habitation. [5]Hungry and thirsty, Their soul fainted in them. [6]Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble, And he delivered them out of their distresses, [7]He led them also by a straight way, That they might go to a city of habitation. [8]Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men! [9]For he satisfieth the longing soul, And the hungry soul he filleth with good. [10]Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, Being bound in affliction and iron, [11]Because they rebelled against the words of God, And contemned the counsel of the Most High: [12]Therefore he brought down their heart with labor; They fell down, and there was none to help. [13]Then they cried unto Jehovah in their trouble, And he saved them out of their distresses. [14]He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, And brake their bonds in sunder. [15]Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men! [16]For he hath broken the gates of brass, And cut the bars of iron in sunder.

[17]Fools because of their transgression, And because of their iniquities, are afflicted. [18]Their soul abhorreth all manner of food; And they draw near unto the gates of death. [19]Then they cry unto Jehovah in their trouble, And he saveth them out of their distresses. [20]He sendeth his word, and healeth them, And delivereth [them] from their destructions. [21]Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men! [22]And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare his works with singing.

[23]They that go down to the sea in ships, That do business in great waters; [24]These see the works of Jehovah, And his wonders in the deep. [25]For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, Which lifteth up the waves thereof. [26]They mount up to the heavens, they go down again to the depths: Their soul melteth away because of trouble. [27]They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits' end. [28]Then they cry unto Jehovah in their trouble, And he bringeth them out of their distresses. [29]He maketh the storm a calm, So that the waves thereof are still. [30]Then are they glad because they are quiet; So he bringeth them unto their desired haven. [31]Oh that men would praise Jehovah for his lovingkindness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men! [32]Let them exalt him also in the assembly of the people, And praise him in the seat of the elders.

[33]He turneth rivers into a wilderness, And watersprings into a thirsty ground; [34]A fruitful land into a salt desert, For the wickedness of them that dwell therein. [35]He turneth a wilderness into a pool of water, And a dry land into watersprings. [36]And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, That they may prepare a city of habitation, [37]And sow fields, and plant vineyards, And get them fruits of increase. [38]He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; And he suffereth not their cattle to decrease. [39]Again, they are diminished and bowed down Through oppression, trouble, and sorrow. [40]He poureth contempt upon princes, And causeth them to wander in the waste, where there is no way. [41]Yet setteth he the needy on high from affliction, And maketh [him] families like a flock. [42]The upright shall see it, and be glad; And all iniquity shall stop her mouth. [43]Whoso is wise will give heed to these things; And they will consider the lovingkindnesses of Jehovah.

Psalm 108

[1]My heart is fixed, O God; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory. [2]Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake right early. [3]I will give thanks unto thee, O Jehovah, among the peoples; And I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. [4]For thy lovingkindness is great above the heavens; And thy truth [reacheth] unto the skies. [5]Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, And thy glory above all the earth. [6]That thy beloved may be delivered, Save with thy right hand, and answer us. [7]God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult; I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. [8]Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre. [9]Moab is my washpot; Upon Edom will I cast my shoe; Over Philistia will I shout. [10]Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who hath led me unto Edom? [11]Hast not thou cast us off, O God? And thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts. [12]Give us help against the adversary; For vain is the help of man. [13]Through God we shall do valiantly: For he it is that will tread down our adversaries.

Psalm 109

[1]Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise; [2]For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me: They have spoken unto me with a lying tongue. [3]They have compassed me about also with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. [4]For my love they are my adversaries: But I [give myself unto] prayer. [5]And they have rewarded me evil for good, And hatred for my love. [6]Set thou a wicked man over him; And let an adversary stand at his right hand. [7]When he is judged, let him come forth guilty; And let his prayer be turned into sin. [8]Let his days be few; [And] let another take his office. [9]Let his children be fatherless, And his wife a widow. [10]Let his children be vagabonds, and beg; And let them seek [their bread] out of their desolate places. [11]Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; And let strangers make spoil of his labor. [12]Let there be none to extend kindness unto him; Neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children. [13]Let his posterity be cut off; In the generation following let their name be blotted out. [14]Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah; And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. [15]Let them be before Jehovah continually, That he may cut off the memory of them from the earth; [16]Because he remembered not to show kindness, But persecuted the poor and needy man, And the broken in heart, to slay [them]. [17]Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him; And he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him. [18]He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment, And it came into his inward parts like water, And like oil into his bones. [19]Let it be unto him as the raiment wherewith he covereth himself, And for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually. [20]This is the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah, And of them that speak evil against my soul. [21]But deal thou with me, O Jehovah the Lord, for thy name's sake: Because thy lovingkindness is good, deliver thou me; [22]For I am poor and needy, And my heart is wounded within me. [23]I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust. [24]My knees are weak through fasting; And my flesh faileth of fatness. [25]I am become also a reproach unto them: When they see me, they shake their head. [26]Help me, O Jehovah my God; Oh save me according to thy lovingkindness: [27]That they may know that this is thy hand; [That] thou, Jehovah, hast done it. [28]Let them curse, but bless thou: When they arise, they shall be put to shame, But thy servant shall rejoice. [29]Let mine adversaries be clothed with dishonor, And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe. [30]I will give great thanks unto Jehovah with my mouth; Yea, I will praise him among the multitude. [31]For he will stand at the right hand of the needy, To save him from them that judge his soul.

Psalm 110

[1]Jehovah saith unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, Until I make thine enemies thy footstool. [2]Jehovah will send forth the rod of thy strength out of Zion: Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. [3]Thy people offer themselves willingly In the day of thy power, in holy array: Out of the womb of the morning Thou hast the dew of thy youth. [4]Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever After the order of Melchizedek. [5]The Lord at thy right hand Will strike through kings in the day of his wrath. [6]He will judge among the nations, He will fill [the places] with dead bodies; He will strike through the head in many countries. [7]He will drink of the brook in the way: Therefore will he lift up the head.

Psalm 111

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. I will give thanks unto Jehovah with my whole heart, In the council of the upright, and in the congregation. [2]The works of Jehovah are great, Sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. [3]His work is honor and majesty; And his righteousness endureth for ever. [4]He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: Jehovah is gracious and merciful. [5]He hath given food unto them that fear him: He will ever be mindful of his covenant. [6]He hath showed his people the power of his works, In giving them the heritage of the nations. [7]The works of his hands are truth and justice; All his precepts are sure. [8]They are established for ever and ever; They are done in truth and uprightness. [9]He hath sent redemption unto his people; He hath commanded his covenant for ever: Holy and reverend is his name. [10]The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: His praise endureth for ever.

Psalm 112

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Blessed is the man that feareth Jehovah, That delighteth greatly in his commandments. [2]His seed shall be mighty upon earth: The generation of the upright shall be blessed. [3]Wealth and riches are in his house; And his righteousness endureth for ever. [4]Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: [He is] gracious, and merciful, and righteous. [5]Well is it with the man that dealeth graciously and lendeth; He shall maintain his cause in judgment. [6]For he shall never be moved; The righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance. [7]He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: His heart is fixed, trusting in Jehovah. [8]His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, Until he see [his desire] upon his adversaries. [9]He hath dispersed, he hath given to the needy; His righteousness endureth for ever: His horn shall be exalted with honor. [10]The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; He shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: The desire of the wicked shall perish.

Psalm 113

[1]Praise ye Jehovah. Praise, O ye servants of Jehovah, Praise the name of Jehovah. [2]Blessed be the name of Jehovah From this time forth and for evermore. [3]From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same Jehovah's name is to be praised. [4]Jehovah is high above all nations, And his glory above the heavens. [5]Who is like unto Jehovah our God, That hath his seat on high, [6]That humbleth himself to behold [The things that are] in heaven and in the earth? [7]He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, And lifteth up the needy from the dunghill; [8]That he may set him with princes, Even with the princes of his people. [9]He maketh the barren woman to keep house, [And to be] a joyful mother of children. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 114

[1]When Israel went forth out of Egypt, The house of Jacob from a people of strange language; [2]Judah became his sanctuary, Israel his dominion. [3]The sea saw it, and fled; The Jordan was driven back. [4]The mountains skipped like rams, The little hills like lambs. [5]What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest? Thou Jordan, that thou turnest back? [6]Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams; Ye little hills, like lambs? [7]Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, At the presence of the God of Jacob, [8]Who turned the rock into a pool of water, The flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalm 115

[1]Not unto us, O Jehovah, not unto us, But unto thy name give glory, For thy lovingkindness, and for thy truth's sake. [2]Wherefore should the nations say, Where is now their God? [3]But our God is in the heavens: He hath done whatsoever he pleased. [4]Their idols are silver and gold, The work of men's hands. [5]They have mouths, but they speak not; Eyes have they, but they see not; [6]They have ears, but they hear not; Noses have they, but they smell not; [7]They have hands, but they handle not; Feet have they, but they walk not; Neither speak they through their throat. [8]They that make them shall be like unto them; Yea, every one that trusteth in them. [9]O Israel, trust thou in Jehovah: He is their help and their shield. [10]O house of Aaron, trust ye in Jehovah: He is their help and their shield. [11]Ye that fear Jehovah, trust in Jehovah: He is their help and their shield. [12]Jehovah hath been mindful of us; he will bless [us]: He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron. [13]He will bless them that fear Jehovah, Both small and great. [14]Jehovah increase you more and more, You and your children. [15]Blessed are ye of Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth. [16]The heavens are the heavens of Jehovah; But the earth hath he given to the children of men. [17]The dead praise not Jehovah, Neither any that go down into silence; [18]But we will bless Jehovah From this time forth and for evermore. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 116

[1]I love Jehovah, because he heareth My voice and my supplications. [2]Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, Therefore will I call [upon him] as long as I live. [3]The cords of death compassed me, And the pains of Sheol gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. [4]Then called I upon the name of Jehovah: O Jehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. [5]Gracious is Jehovah, and righteous; Yea, our God is merciful. [6]Jehovah preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he saved me. [7]Return unto thy rest, O my soul; For Jehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee. [8]For thou hast delivered my soul from death, Mine eyes from tears, [And] my feet from falling. [9]I will walk before Jehovah In the land of the living. [10]I believe, for I will speak: I was greatly afflicted: [11]I said in my haste, All men are liars. [12]What shall I render unto Jehovah For all his benefits toward me? [13]I will take the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of Jehovah. [14]I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, Yea, in the presence of all his people. [15]Precious in the sight of Jehovah Is the death of his saints. [16]O Jehovah, truly I am thy servant: I am thy servant, the son of thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bonds. [17]I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of Jehovah. [18]I will pay my vows unto Jehovah, Yea, in the presence of all his people, [19]In the courts of Jehovah's house, In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 117

[1]O praise Jehovah, all ye nations; Laud him, all ye peoples. [2]For his lovingkindness is great toward us; And the truth of Jehovah [endureth] for ever. Praise ye Jehovah.

Psalm 118

[1]Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [2]Let Israel now say, That his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [3]Let the house of Aaron now say, That his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [4]Let them now that fear Jehovah say, That his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever. [5]Out of my distress I called upon Jehovah: Jehovah answered me [and set me] in a large place. [6]Jehovah is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me? [7]Jehovah is on my side among them that help me: Therefore shall I see [my desire] upon them that hate me. [8]It is better to take refuge in Jehovah Than to put confidence in man. [9]It is better to take refuge in Jehovah Than to put confidence in princes. [10]All nations compassed me about: In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off. [11]They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off. [12]They compassed me about like bees; They are quenched as the fire of thorns: In the name of Jehovah I will cut them off. [13]Thou didst thrust sore at me that I might fall; But Jehovah helped me. [14]Jehovah is my strength and song; And he is become my salvation. [15]The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly. [16]The right hand of Jehovah is exalted: The right hand of Jehovah doeth valiantly. [17]I shall not die, but live, And declare the works of Jehovah. [18]Jehovah hath chastened me sore; But he hath not given me over unto death. [19]Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto Jehovah. [20]This is the gate of Jehovah; The righteous shall enter into it. [21]I will give thanks unto thee; for thou hast answered me, And art become my salvation. [22]The stone which the builders rejected Is become the head of the corner. [23]This is Jehovah's doing; It is marvellous in our eyes. [24]This is the day which Jehovah hath made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. [25]Save now, we beseech thee, O Jehovah: O Jehovah, we beseech thee, send now prosperity. [26]Blessed be he that cometh in the name of Jehovah: We have blessed you out of the house of Jehovah. [27]Jehovah is God, and he hath given us light: Bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar. [28]Thou art my God, and I will give thanks unto thee: Thou art my God, I will exalt thee. [29]Oh give thanks unto Jehovah; for he is good; For his lovingkindness [endureth] for ever.

Psalm 119

ALEPH
[1]Blessed are they that are perfect in the way, Who walk in the law of Jehovah. [2]Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, That seek him with the whole heart. [3]Yea, they do no unrighteousness; They walk in his ways. [4]Thou hast commanded [us] thy precepts, That we should observe them diligently. [5]Oh that my ways were established To observe thy statutes! [6]Then shall I not be put to shame, When I have respect unto all thy commandments. [7]I will give thanks unto thee with uprightness of heart, When I learn thy righteous judgments. [8]I will observe thy statutes: Oh forsake me not utterly.

BETH
[9]Wherewith shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed [thereto] according to thy word. [10]With my whole heart have I sought thee: Oh let me not wander from thy commandments. [11]Thy word have I laid up in my heart, That I might not sin against thee. [12]Blessed art thou, O Jehovah: Teach me thy statutes. [13]With my lips have I declared All the ordinances of thy mouth. [14]I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, As much as in all riches. [15]I will meditate on thy precepts, And have respect unto thy ways. [16]I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

GIMEL
[17]Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live; So will I observe thy word. [18]Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold Wondrous things out of thy law. [19]I am a sojourner in the earth: Hide not thy commandments from me. [20]My soul breaketh for the longing That it hath unto thine ordinances at all times. [21]Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, That do wander from thy commandments. [22]Take away from me reproach and contempt; For I have kept thy testimonies. [23]Princes also sat and talked against me; [But] thy servant did meditate on thy statutes. [24]Thy testimonies also are my delight [And] my counsellors.

DALETH
[25]My soul cleaveth unto the dust: Quicken thou me according to thy word. [26]I declared my ways, and thou answeredst me: Teach me thy statutes. [27]Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: So shall I meditate on thy wondrous works. [28]My soul melteth for heaviness: Strengthen thou me according unto thy word. [29]Remove from me the way of falsehood; And grant me thy law graciously. [30]I have chosen the way of faithfulness: Thine ordinances have I set [before me]. [31]I cleave unto thy testimonies: O Jehovah, put me not to shame. [32]I will run the way of thy commandments, When thou shalt enlarge my heart.

HE
[33]Teach me, O Jehovah, the way of thy statutes; And I shall keep it unto the end. [34]Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; Yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart. [35]Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; For therein do I delight. [36]Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, And not to covetousness. [37]Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity, And quicken me in thy ways. [38]Confirm unto thy servant thy word, Which [is in order] unto the fear of thee. [39]Turn away my reproach whereof I am afraid; For thine ordinances are good. [40]Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: Quicken me in thy righteousness.

VAV
[41]Let thy lovingkindnesses also come unto me, O Jehovah, Even thy salvation, according to thy word. [42]So shall I have an answer for him that reproacheth me; For I trust in thy word. [43]And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; For I have hoped in thine ordinances. [44]So shall I observe thy law continually For ever and ever. [45]And I shall walk at liberty; For I have sought thy precepts. [46]I will also speak of thy testimonies before kings, And shall not be put to shame. [47]And I will delight myself in thy commandments, Which I have loved. [48]I will lift up my hands also unto thy commandments, which I have loved; And I will meditate on thy statutes.

ZAYIN
[49]Remember the word unto thy servant, Because thou hast made me to hope. [50]This is my comfort in my affliction; For thy word hath quickened me. [51]The proud have had me greatly in derision: [Yet] have I not swerved from thy law. [52]I have remembered thine ordinances of old, O Jehovah, And have comforted myself. [53]Hot indignation hath taken hold upon me, Because of the wicked that forsake thy law. [54]Thy statutes have been my songs In the house of my pilgrimage. [55]I have remembered thy name, O Jehovah, in the night, And have observed thy law. [56]This I have had, Because I have kept thy precepts.

HHETH
[57]Jehovah is my portion: I have said that I would observe thy words. [58]I entreated thy favor with my whole heart: Be merciful unto me according to thy word. [59]I thought on my ways, And turned my feet unto thy testimonies. [60]I made haste, and delayed not, To observe thy commandments. [61]The cords of the wicked have wrapped me round; [But] I have not forgotten thy law. [62]At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee Because of thy righteous ordinances. [63]I am a companion of all them that fear thee, And of them that observe thy precepts. [64]The earth, O Jehovah, is full of thy lovingkindness: Teach me thy statutes.

TETH
[65]Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Jehovah, according unto thy word. [66]Teach me good judgment and knowledge; For I have believed in thy commandments. [67]Before I was afflicted I went astray; But now I observe thy word. [68]Thou art good, and doest good; Teach me thy statutes. [69]The proud have forged a lie against me: With my whole heart will I keep thy precepts. [70]Their heart is as fat as grease; But I delight in thy law. [71]It is good for me that I have been afflicted; That I may learn thy statutes. [72]The law of thy mouth is better unto me Than thousands of gold and silver.

YODH
[73]Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: Give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. [74]They that fear thee shall see me and be glad, Because I have hoped in thy word. [75]I know, O Jehovah, that thy judgments are righteous, And that in faithfulness thou hast afflicted me. [76]Let, I pray thee, thy lovingkindness be for my comfort, According to thy word unto thy servant. [77]Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live; For thy law is my delight. [78]Let the proud be put to shame; For they have overthrown me wrongfully: [But] I will meditate on thy precepts. [79]Let those that fear thee turn unto me; And they shall know thy testimonies. [80]Let my heart be perfect in thy statutes, That I be not put to shame.

KAPH
[81]My soul fainteth for thy salvation; [But] I hope in thy word. [82]Mine eyes fail for thy word, While I say, When wilt thou comfort me? [83]For I am become like a wine-skin in the smoke; Yet do I not forget thy statutes. [84]How many are the days of thy servant? When wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me? [85]The proud have digged pits for me, Who are not according to thy law. [86]All thy commandments are faithful: They persecute me wrongfully; help thou me. [87]They had almost consumed me upon earth; But I forsook not thy precepts.

LAMEDH
[88]Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; So shall I observe the testimony of thy mouth. [89]For ever, O Jehovah, Thy word is settled in heaven. [90]Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: Thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. [91]They abide this day according to thine ordinances; For all things are thy servants. [92]Unless thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction. [93]I will never forget thy precepts; For with them thou hast quickened me. [94]I am thine, save me; For I have sought thy precepts. [95]The wicked have waited for me, to destroy me; [But] I will consider thy testimonies.

MEM
[96]I have seen an end of all perfection; [But] thy commandment is exceeding broad. [97]Oh how love I thy law! It is my meditation all the day. [98]Thy commandments make me wiser than mine enemies; For they are ever with me. [99]I have more understanding than all my teachers; For thy testimonies are my meditation. [100]I understand more than the aged, Because I have kept thy precepts. [101]I have refrained my feet from every evil way, That I might observe thy word. [102]I have not turned aside from thine ordinances; For thou hast taught me. [103]How sweet are thy words unto my taste! [Yea, sweeter] than honey to my mouth! [104]Through thy precepts I get understanding: Therefore I hate every false way.

NUN
[105]Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path. [106]I have sworn, and have confirmed it, That I will observe thy righteous ordinances. [107]I am afflicted very much: Quicken me, O Jehovah, according unto thy word. [108]Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill-offerings of my mouth, O Jehovah, And teach me thine ordinances. [109]My soul is continually in my hand; Yet do I not forget thy law. [110]The wicked have laid a snare for me; Yet have I not gone astray from thy precepts. [111]Thy testimonies have I taken as a heritage for ever; For they are the rejoicing of my heart. [112]I have inclined my heart to perform thy statutes For ever, even unto the end.

SAMEKH
[113]I hate them that are of a double mind; But thy law do I love. [114]Thou art my hiding-place and my shield: I hope in thy word. [115]Depart from me, ye evil-doers, That I may keep the commandments of my God. [116]Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live; And let me not be ashamed of my hope. [117]Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe, And shall have respect unto thy statutes continually. [118]Thou hast set at nought all them that err from thy statutes; For their deceit is falsehood. [119]Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: Therefore I love thy testimonies. [120]My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; And I am afraid of thy judgments.

AYIN
[121]I have done justice and righteousness: Leave me not to mine oppressors. [122]Be surety for thy servant for good: Let not the proud oppress me. [123]Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, And for thy righteous word. [124]Deal with thy servant according unto thy lovingkindness, And teach me thy statutes. [125]I am thy servant; give me understanding, That I may know thy testimonies. [126]It is time for Jehovah to work; [For] they have made void thy law. [127]Therefore I love thy commandments Above gold, yea, above fine gold. [128]Therefore I esteem all [thy] precepts concerning all [things] to be right; [And] I hate every false way.

PE
[129]Thy testimonies are wonderful; Therefore doth my soul keep them. [130]The opening of thy words giveth light; It giveth understanding unto the simple. [131]I opened wide my mouth, and panted; For I longed for thy commandments. [132]Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me, As thou usest to do unto those that love thy name. [133]Establish my footsteps in thy word; And let not any iniquity have dominion over me. [134]Redeem me from the oppression of man: So will I observe thy precepts. [135]Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; And teach me thy statutes. [136]Streams of water run down mine eyes, Because they observe not thy law.

TSADHE
[137]Righteous art thou, O Jehovah, And upright are thy judgments. [138]Thou hast commanded thy testimonies in righteousness And very faithfulness. [139]My zeal hath consumed me, Because mine adversaries have forgotten thy words. [140]Thy word is very pure; Therefore thy servant loveth it. [141]I am small and despised; [Yet] do I not forget thy precepts. [142]Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And thy law is truth. [143]Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me; [Yet] thy commandments are my delight. [144]Thy testimonies are righteous for ever: Give me understanding, and I shall live.

QOPH
[145]I have called with my whole heart; answer me, O Jehovah: I will keep thy statutes. [146]I have called unto thee; save me, And I shall observe thy testimonies. [147]I anticipated the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy words. [148]Mine eyes anticipated the night-watches, That I might meditate on thy word. [149]Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: Quicken me, O Jehovah, according to thine ordinances. [150]They draw nigh that follow after wickedness; They are far from thy law. [151]Thou art nigh, O Jehovah; And all thy commandments are truth. [152]Of old have I known from thy testimonies, That thou hast founded them for ever.

RESH
[153]Consider mine affliction, and deliver me; For I do not forget thy law. [154]Plead thou my cause, and redeem me: Quicken me according to thy word. [155]Salvation is far from the wicked; For they seek not thy statutes. [156]Great are thy tender mercies, O Jehovah: Quicken me according to thine ordinances. [157]Many are my persecutors and mine adversaries; [Yet] have I not swerved from thy testimonies. [158]I beheld the treacherous, and was grieved, Because they observe not thy word. [159]Consider how I love thy precepts: Quicken me, O Jehovah, according to thy lovingkindness. [160]The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances [endureth] for ever.

SHIN
[161]Princes have persecuted me without a cause; But my heart standeth in awe of thy words. [162]I rejoice at thy word, As one that findeth great spoil. [163]I hate and abhor falsehood; [But] thy law do I love. [164]Seven times a day do I praise thee, Because of thy righteous ordinances. [165]Great peace have they that love thy law; And they have no occasion of stumbling. [166]I have hoped for thy salvation, O Jehovah, And have done thy commandments. [167]My soul hath observed thy testimonies; And I love them exceedingly. [168]I have observed thy precepts and thy testimonies; For all my ways are before thee.

TAV
[169]Let my cry come near before thee, O Jehovah: Give me understanding according to thy word. [170]Let my supplication come before thee: Deliver me according to thy word. [171]Let my lips utter praise; For thou teachest me thy statutes. [172]Let my tongue sing of thy word; For all thy commandments are righteousness. [173]Let thy hand be ready to help me; For I have chosen thy precepts. [174]I have longed for thy salvation, O Jehovah; And thy law is my delight. [175]Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; And let thine ordinances help me. [176]I have gone astray like a lost sheep; Seek thy servant; For I do not forget thy commandments.

Psalm 120

[1]In my distress I cried unto Jehovah, And he answered me. [2]Deliver my soul, O Jehovah, from lying lips, [And] from a deceitful tongue. [3]What shall be given unto thee, and what shall be done more unto thee, Thou deceitful tongue? [4]Sharp arrows of the mighty, With coals of juniper. [5]Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, That I dwell among the tents of Kedar! [6]My soul hath long had her dwelling With him that hateth peace. [7]I am [for] peace: But when I speak, they are for war.
