2. One day telleth another : and one night certifieth another.
3 There is neither speech nor language : but their voices are heard among them.
4 Their sound is gone out into all lands : and their words into the ends of the world. : 5 In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun : which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a giant to run his course.
6 It goeth forth from the uttermost part of the heaven, and runneth about unto the end of it again : and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
7 The law of the Lord is an undefiled law, converting the soul : the testimony of the Lord is sure, and giveth wisdom unto the simple.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right, and rejoice the heart : the commandment of the Lord is pure, and giveth light unto the eyes. · 9 The fear of the Lord is clean, and endureth for ever : the judgements of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold : sweeter also than honey, and the honey-comb. · 11 Moreover, by them is thy servant taught : and in keeping of them there is great reward.
12 Who can tell how oft he offendeth : 0 cleanse thou me from my secret faults.
13 Keep thy servant also from presumptuous sins, lest they get the dominion over me : so shall I be undefiled, and innocent from the great otfence.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the
meditation of my heart : be alway acceptable in thy sight, : 15 15'0 Lord : my strength, and my redeemer. PSAL. XX.
Exaudiat te Dominus. THE HE Lord hear thee in the day of trou
ble : the Name of the God of Jacob defend thee;
2 Send thee help from the sanctuary : and strengthen thee out of Sion;
3 Remember all thy offerings : and accept thy burnt-sacrifice;
4 Grant thee thy heart's desire : and fulfil all thy mind.
5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and triumph in the Name of the Lord our God : the Lord perform all thy petitions.
6. Now know I, that the Lord helpeth his Anointed, and will hear him from his holy heaven : even with the wholesome strength of his right hand.
7 Some put their trust in chariots, and some in horses : but we will remember the Name of the Lord our God.
8 They are brought down, and fallen : but we are risen, and stand upright.
9 Save, Lord, and hear us, o King of heaven : when we call
thee. Psal. xxi. Domine, in virtute tua. HE King shall rejoice in thy strength,
O Lord : exceeding glad shall he be of thy salvation.
2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire : and hast not denied him the request of his lips.
3 For thou shalt prevent him with the
blessings of goodness : and shalt set a crown of pure gold upon
his head. 4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest him a long life : even for ever and ever.
5 His honour is great in thy salvation : glory and great worship shalt thou lay upon him.
6 For thou shalt give him everlasting felicity : and make him glad with the joy of thy countenance.
7 And why? because the King putteth his trust in the Lord : and in the mercy of the most Highest he shall not miscarry.
8 All thine enemies shall feel thy hand : thy right hand shall find out them that hate thee.
9 Thou shalt make them like a fiery oven in time of thy wrath : the Lord shall destroy them in his displeasure, and the fire shall consume them.
10 Their fruit shalt thou root out of the earth : and their seed from among the children of men.
11 For they intended mischief against thee : and imagined such a device as they are not able to perform
12 Therefore shalt thou put them to flight : and the strings of thy bow shalt thou make ready against the face of them.
13 Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength : so will we sing, and praise thy power.
Psal. xxii. Deus, Deus meus. M
Y God, my God, look upon me; why hast thou forsaken me : and art so far
from my health, and from the words of my complaint ?
2 0 my God, I cry in the day-time, but thou hearest not : and in the night-season also I take no rest.
3 And thou continuest holy : 0 thou worship of Israel.
4 Our fathers hoped in thee : they trusted in thee, and thou didst deliver them. : 5 They called upon thee, and were holpen : they put their trust in thee, and were not confounded.
6 But as for me, I am a worm, and no man : a very scorn of men, and the out-cast of the people.
7 Al they that see me laugh me to scorn : they shoot out their lips, and shake their heads, saying,
8 He trusted in God, that he would deliver him : let him deliver him, if he will have him.
9 But thou art he that took me out of my mother's womb : thou wast my hope, when I hanged yet upon my mother's breasts.
10 I have been left unto thee ever since I was born : thou art my God even from my mother's womb. 1.11 O go not from me, for trouble is hard at hand : and there is none to help me.
12 Many oxen are come about me : fat bulls of Basan close me in on
side. 13 They gape upon me with their mouths : as it were a ramping and a roaring lion.
14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint : my heart also in the midst of my body is even like melting wax.
15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaveth to my gums : and thou shalt bring me into the dust of death.
16 For many dogs are come about me : and the council of the wicked layeth siege against
17 They pierced my hands and my feet; I may tell all my bones': they stand staring and looking upon me.
18 They part my garments among them : and cast lots upon my vesture.
19 But be not thou far from me, O Lord : thou art my succour, haste thee to help me.
20 Deliver my soul from the sword : my darling from the power of the dog.
21 Save me from the lion's mouth : thou hast heard me also from among the horns of the unicorns.
22 I will declare thy Name unto my brethren : in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
23 O praise the Lord, ye that fear him : magnify him, all ye of the seed of Jacob, and fear him, all ye seed of Israel ;
24 For he hath not despised, nor abhorred, the low estate of the poor : he hath not hid his face from him, but when he called unto him he heard him.
25 My praise is of thee in the great congregation : my vows will I perform in the sight of them that fear him.
26 The poor shall eat, and be satisfied : they that seek after the Lord shall praise him ; your heart shall live for ever.
27 All the ends of the world shall remem
