The Old Testament

(Verses 100-150)

100:1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.


100:2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with



100:3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and

not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.


100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with

praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.


100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth

endureth to all generations.




101:1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I



101:2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou

come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.


101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of

them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.


101:4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked



101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him

that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.


101:6 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 serve me.


101:7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that

telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.


101:8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut

off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.




102:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.


102:2 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble;

incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.


102:3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as

an hearth.


102:4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget

to eat my bread.


102:5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my



102:6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the



102:7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.


102:8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad

against me are sworn against me.


102:9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with



102:10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast

lifted me up, and cast me down.


102:11 My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered

like grass.


102:12 But thou, O LORD, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance

unto all generations.


102:13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to

favour her, yea, the set time, is come.


102:14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the

dust thereof.


102:15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the

kings of the earth thy glory.


102:16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his



102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise

their prayer.


102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the

people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.


102:19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from

heaven did the LORD behold the earth;


102:20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are

appointed to death;


102:21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in



102:22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to

serve the LORD.


102:23 He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.


102:24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy

years are throughout all generations.


102:25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the

heavens are the work of thy hands.


102:26 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:


102:27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.


102:28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed

shall be established before thee.




103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his

holy name.


103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:


103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy



103:4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with

lovingkindness and tender mercies;


103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is

renewed like the eagle's.


103:6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are



103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of



103:8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous

in mercy.


103:9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for



103:10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us

according to our iniquities.


103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his

mercy toward them that fear him.


103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our

transgressions from us.


103:13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them

that fear him.


103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.


103:15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so

he flourisheth.


103:16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place

thereof shall know it no more.


103:17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting

upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's



103:18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his

commandments to do them.


103:19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his

kingdom ruleth over all.


103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do

his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.


103:21 Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that

do his pleasure.


103:22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion:

bless the LORD, O my soul.




104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great;

thou art clothed with honour and majesty.


104:2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who

stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:


104:3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh

the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:


104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:


104:5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be

removed for ever.


104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters

stood above the mountains.


104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted



104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto

the place which thou hast founded for them.


104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they

turn not again to cover the earth.


104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the



104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses

quench their thirst.


104:12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation,

which sing among the branches.


104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied

with the fruit of thy works.


104:14 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;


104:15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his

face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.


104:16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon,

which he hath planted;


104:17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir

trees are her house.


104:18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks

for the conies.


104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going



104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts

of the forest do creep forth.


104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from



104:22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them

down in their dens.


104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the



104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made

them all: the earth is full of thy riches.


104:25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping

innumerable, both small and great beasts.


104:26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast

made to play therein.


104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat

in due season.


104:28 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand,

they are filled with good.


104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their

breath, they die, and return to their dust.


104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou

renewest the face of the earth.


104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall

rejoice in his works.


104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the

hills, and they smoke.


104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise

to my God while I have my being.


104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the



104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the

wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.




105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his

deeds among the people.


105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous



105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that

seek the LORD.


105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.


105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders,

and the judgments of his mouth;


105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his



105:7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.


105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he

commanded to a thousand generations.


105:9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;


105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for

an everlasting covenant:


105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of

your inheritance:


105:12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and

strangers in it.


105:13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to

another people;


105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for

their sakes;


105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.


105:16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the

whole staff of bread.


105:17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a



105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:


105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried



105:20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and

let him go free.


105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:


105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators



105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of



105:24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger

than their enemies.


105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with

his servants.


105:26 He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.


105:27 They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of



105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not

against his word.


105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.


105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of

their kings.


105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all

their coasts.


105:32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.


105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the

trees of their coasts.


105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that

without number,


105:35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the

fruit of their ground.


105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all

their strength.


105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was

not one feeble person among their tribes.


105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell

upon them.


105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the



105:40 The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them

with the bread of heaven.


105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the

dry places like a river.


105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.


105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with



105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the

labour of the people;


105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise

ye the LORD.




106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good:

for his mercy endureth for ever.


106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth

all his praise?


106:3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth

righteousness at all times.


106:4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy

people: O visit me with thy salvation;


106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the

gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.


106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we

have done wickedly.


106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered

not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at

the Red sea.


106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might

make his mighty power to be known.


106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them

through the depths, as through the wilderness.


106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and

redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.


106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them



106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.


106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:


106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in

the desert.


106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their



106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the



106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the

company of Abiram.


106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up

the wicked.


106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.


106:20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that

eateth grass.


106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in



106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the

Red sea.


106:23 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.


106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his



106:25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice

of the LORD.


106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them

in the wilderness:


106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter

them in the lands.


106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the

sacrifices of the dead.


106:29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the

plague brake in upon them.


106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the

plague was stayed.


106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all

generations for evermore.


106:32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went

ill with Moses for their sakes:


106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly

with his lips.


106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD

commanded them:


106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.


106:36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.


106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto



106:38 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.


106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring

with their own inventions.


106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people,

insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.


106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that

hated them ruled over them.


106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into

subjection under their hand.


106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with

their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.


106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their



106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according

to the multitude of his mercies.


106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them



106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen,

to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.


106:48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to

everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.




107:1 O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy

endureth for ever.


107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from

the hand of the enemy;


107:3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the

west, from the north, and from the south.


107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no

city to dwell in.


107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.


107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered

them out of their distresses.


107:7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a

city of habitation.


107:8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his

wonderful works to the children of men!


107:9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul

with goodness.


107:10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound

in affliction and iron;


107:11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned

the counsel of the most High:


107:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell

down, and there was none to help.


107:13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved

them out of their distresses.


107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and

brake their bands in sunder.


107:15 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his

wonderful works to the children of men!


107:16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron

in sunder.


107:17 Fools because of their transgression, and because of their

iniquities, are afflicted.


107:18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near

unto the gates of death.


107:19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth

them out of their distresses.


107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from

their destructions.


107:21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his

wonderful works to the children of men!


107:22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and

declare his works with rejoicing.


107:23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in

great waters;


107:24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.


107:25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth

up the waves thereof.


107:26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths:

their soul is melted because of trouble.


107:27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are

at their wit's end.


107:28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth

them out of their distresses.


107:29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are



107:30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them

unto their desired haven.


107:31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his

wonderful works to the children of men!


107:32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and

praise him in the assembly of the elders.


107:33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into

dry ground;


107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them

that dwell therein.


107:35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground

into watersprings.


107:36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare

a city for habitation;


107:37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits

of increase.


107:38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and

suffereth not their cattle to decrease.


107:39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression,

affliction, and sorrow.


107:40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in

the wilderness, where there is no way.


107:41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him

families like a flock.


107:42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall

stop her mouth.


107:43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall

understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.




108:1 O god, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with

my glory.


108:2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.


108:3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing

praises unto thee among the nations.


108:4 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth

unto the clouds.


108:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above

all the earth;


108:6 That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and

answer me.


108:7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide

Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.


108:8 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength

of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;


108:9 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over

Philistia will I triumph.


108:10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into



108:11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou,

O God, go forth with our hosts?


108:12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.


108:13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall

tread down our enemies.




109:1 Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;


109:2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are

opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.


109:3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought

against me without a cause.


109:4 For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto



109:5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.


109:6 Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right



109:7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his

prayer become sin.


109:8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.


109:9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.


109:10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them

seek their bread also out of their desolate places.


109:11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the

strangers spoil his labour.


109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there

be any to favour his fatherless children.


109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following

let their name be blotted out.


109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD;

and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.


109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off

the memory of them from the earth.


109:16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted

the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.


109:17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted

not in blessing, so let it be far from him.


109:18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so

let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.


109:19 Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a

girdle wherewith he is girded continually.


109:20 Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and

of them that speak evil against my soul.


109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake:

because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.


109:22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.


109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and

down as the locust.


109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of



109:25 I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me

they shaked their heads.


109:26 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:


109:27 That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast

done it.


109:28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be

ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.


109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover

themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.


109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will

praise him among the multitude.


109:31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him

from those that condemn his soul.




110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I

make thine enemies thy footstool.


110:2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule

thou in the midst of thine enemies.


110:3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the

beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew

of thy youth.


110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for

ever after the order of Melchizedek.


110:5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day

of his wrath.


110:6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with

the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.


110:7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift

up the head.




111:1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart,

in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.


111:2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that

have pleasure therein.


111:3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness

endureth for ever.


111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is

gracious and full of compassion.


111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be

mindful of his covenant.


111:6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may

give them the heritage of the heathen.


111:7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his

commandments are sure.


111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and



111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his

covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.


111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good

understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise

endureth for ever.

that delighteth greatly in his commandments.


112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the

upright shall be blessed.

endureth for ever.

gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

affairs with discretion.


112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in

everlasting remembrance.


112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed,

trusting in the LORD.


112:8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see

his desire upon his enemies.


112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness

endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.


112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with

his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.




113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise

the name of the LORD.


113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for



113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the

LORD's name is to be praised.

113:5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,


113:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven,

and in the earth!


113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy

out of the dunghill;


113:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his



113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful

mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.




114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people

of strange language;


114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.


114:3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.


114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like



114:5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan,

that thou wast driven back?


114:6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills,

like lambs?


114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the

presence of the God of Jacob;


114:8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a

fountain of waters.




115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory,

for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.


115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?


115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath



115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.


115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they

see not:


115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they

smell not:


115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they

walk not: neither speak they through their throat.


115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that

trusteth in them.


115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their



115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their



115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and

their shield.


115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will

bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.


115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.


115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your



115:15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.


115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth

hath he given to the children of men.


115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into



115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for



Praise the LORD.




116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my



116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call

upon him as long as I live.


116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat

hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.


116:4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee,

deliver my soul.


116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.


116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped



116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt

bountifully with thee.


116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from

tears, and my feet from falling.


116:9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.


116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:


116:11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.


116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward



116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the



116:14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his



116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.


116:16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son

of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.


116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will

call upon the name of the LORD.


116:18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his



116:19 In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O

Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.




117:1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.


117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of

the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.




118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy

endureth for ever.


118:2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.


118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for



118:4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for



118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and

set me in a large place.


118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto



118:7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall

I see my desire upon them that hate me.


118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.


118:9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in



118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD

will I destroy them.


118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in

the name of the LORD I will destroy them.


118:12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the

fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.


118:13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD

helped me.


118:14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.


118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of

the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.


118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the

LORD doeth valiantly.


118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.


118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over

unto death.


118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and

I will praise the LORD:


118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.


118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my



118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone

of the corner.


118:23 This is the LORD's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.


118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and

be glad in it.


118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send

now prosperity.


118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have

blessed you out of the house of the LORD.


118:27 God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice

with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.


118:28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I

will exalt thee.


118:29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy

endureth for ever.




119:1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the



119:2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him

with the whole heart.


119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.


119:4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.


119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!


119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy



119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have

learned thy righteous judgments.


119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.


119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed

thereto according to thy word.


119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander

from thy commandments.


119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against



119:12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.


119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.


119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in

all riches.


119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy



119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy



119:17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep

thy word.


119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of

thy law.


119:19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from



119:20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy

judgments at all times.


119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from

thy commandments.


119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy



119:23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did

meditate in thy statutes.


119:24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.leth.


119:25 My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to

thy word.


119:26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy



119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk

of thy wondrous works.


119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according

unto thy word.


119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law



119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid

before me.


119:31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.


119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge

my heart.


119:33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it

unto the end.


119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall

observe it with my whole heart.


119:35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I



119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.


119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me

in thy way.


119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.


119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.

according to thy word.


119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me:

for I trust in thy word.


119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I

have hoped in thy judgments.


119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.


119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.


119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not

be ashamed.


119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have



119:48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I

have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.


119:49 Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused

me to hope.


119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath

quickened me.


119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not

declined from thy law.


119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted



119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that

forsake thy law.


119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.


119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept

thy law.


119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.


119:57 Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy



119:58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me

according to thy word.


119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.


119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.


119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not

forgotten thy law.


119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy

righteous judgments.


119:63 I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that

keep thy precepts.


119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.


119:65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto

thy word.


119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy



119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy



119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.


119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy

precepts with my whole heart.


119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.


119:71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might

learn thy statutes.


119:72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold

and silver.


119:73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding,

that I may learn thy commandments.


119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I

have hoped in thy word.


119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in

faithfulness hast afflicted me.


119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort,

according to thy word unto thy servant.


119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy

law is my delight.


119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me

without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.


119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have

known thy testimonies.


119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.


119:81 My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.


119:82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?


119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget

thy statutes.


119:84 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute

judgment on them that persecute me?


119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.


119:86 All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me

wrongfully; help thou me.


119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy



119:88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the

testimony of thy mouth.


119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.


119:90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established

the earth, and it abideth.


119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all

are thy servants.


119:92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have

perished in mine affliction.


119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast

quickened me.


119:94 I am thine, save me: for I have sought thy precepts.


119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will

consider thy testimonies.


119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is

exceeding broad.


119:97 O how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day.


119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine

enemies: for they are ever with me.


119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy

testimonies are my meditation.


119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy



119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might

keep thy word.


119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught



119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey

to my mouth!


119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate

every false way.


119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.


119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy

righteous judgments.


119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto

thy word.


119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O

LORD, and teach me thy judgments.


119:109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy



119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy



119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they

are the rejoicing of my heart.


119:112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even

unto the end.


119:113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.


119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.


119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments

of my God.


119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me

not be ashamed of my hope.


119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect

unto thy statutes continually.


119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes:

for their deceit is falsehood.


119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross:

therefore I love thy testimonies.


119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy



119:121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine



119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress



119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy



119:124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me

thy statutes.


119:125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy



119:126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void

thy law.


119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine



119:128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to

be right; and I hate every false way.


119:129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep



119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth

understanding unto the simple.


119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy



119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to

do unto those that love thy name.


119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have

dominion over me.


119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy



119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy



119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy



119:137 Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.


119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and

very faithful.


119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten

thy words.


119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.


119:141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.


119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law

is the truth.


119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy

commandments are my delights.


119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me

understanding, and I shall live.


119:145 I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy



119:146 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.


119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in

thy word.


119:148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in

thy word.


119:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD,

quicken me according to thy judgment.


119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from

thy law.


119:151 Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.


119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast

founded them for ever.


119:153 Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget

thy law.


119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy



119:155 Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy



119:156 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to

thy judgments.


119:157 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline

from thy testimonies.


119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept

not thy word.


119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD,

according to thy lovingkindness.


119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy

righteous judgments endureth for ever.


119:161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart

standeth in awe of thy word.


119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.


119:163 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.


119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous



119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall

offend them.


119:166 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy



119:167 My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them



119:168 I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways

are before thee.


119:169 Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me

understanding according to thy word.


119:170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to

thy word.


119:171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy



119:172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments

are righteousness.


119:173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.


119:174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my



119:175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy

judgments help me.


119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I

do not forget thy commandments.




120:1 In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.


120:2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful



120:3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee,

thou false tongue?


120:4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.


120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents

of Kedar!


120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.


120:7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.




121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my



121:2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.


121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee

will not slumber.


121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.


121:5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right



121:6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.


121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve

thy soul.


121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from

this time forth, and even for evermore.




122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of

the LORD.


122:2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.


122:3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:


122:4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the

testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.


122:5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house

of David.


122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love



122:7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.


122:8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be

within thee.


122:9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.




123:1 Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the



123:2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their

masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so

our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.


123:3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are

exceedingly filled with contempt.


123:4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that

are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.




124:1 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel



124:2 If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose

up against us:


124:3 Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was

kindled against us:


124:4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our



124:5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.


124:6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their



124:7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:

the snare is broken, and we are escaped.


124:8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.




125:1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot

be removed, but abideth for ever.


125:2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round

about his people from henceforth even for ever.


125:3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the

righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.


125:4 Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are

upright in their hearts.


125:5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD

shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be

upon Israel.




126:1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like

them that dream.


126:2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with

singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great

things for them.


126:3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.


126:4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.


126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.


126:6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall

doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.




127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build

it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.


127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the

bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.


127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the

womb is his reward.


127:4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of

the youth.


127:5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall

not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.




128:1 Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his



128:2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou

be, and it shall be well with thee.


128:3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine

house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.


128:4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the



128:5 The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the

good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.


128:6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon





129:1 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now



129:2 Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have

not prevailed against me.


129:3 The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.


129:4 The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the



129:5 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.


129:6 Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth

afore it groweth up:


129:7 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth

sheaves his bosom.


129:8 Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be

upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.




130:1 Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.


130:2 Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of

my supplications.


130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall



130:4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.


130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I



130:6 My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the

morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.


130:7 Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy,

and with him is plenteous redemption.


130:8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.




131:1 Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I

exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.


131:2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is

weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.


131:3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.




132:1 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:


132:2 How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of



132:3 Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go

up into my bed;


132:4 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,


132:5 Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the

mighty God of Jacob.


132:6 Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the



132:7 We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his



132:8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.


132:9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy

saints shout for joy.


132:10 For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine



132:11 The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from

it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.


132:12 If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I

shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for



132:13 For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his



132:14 This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired



132:15 I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor

with bread.


132:16 I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints

shall shout aloud for joy.


132:17 There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a

lamp for mine anointed.


132:18 His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall

his crown flourish.




133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell

together in unity!


133:2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down

upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of

his garments;


133:3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the

mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even

life for evermore.




134:1 Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by

night stand in the house of the LORD.


134:2 Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.


134:3 The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.




135:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him,

O ye servants of the LORD.


135:2 Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the

house of our God.


135:3 Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his

name; for it is pleasant.


135:4 For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his

peculiar treasure.


135:5 For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above

all gods.


135:6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in

earth, in the seas, and all deep places.


135:7 He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he

maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his



135:8 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.


135:9 Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt,

upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.


135:10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;


135:11 Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the

kingdoms of Canaan:


135:12 And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel

his people.


135:13 Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O LORD,

throughout all generations.


135:14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent himself

concerning his servants.


135:15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's



135:16 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they

see not;


135:17 They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath

in their mouths.


135:18 They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that

trusteth in them.


135:19 Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of



135:20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless

the LORD.


135:21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem.


Praise ye the LORD.




136:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy

endureth for ever.


136:2 O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for



136:3 O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for



136:4 To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for



136:5 To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth

for ever.


136:6 To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his

mercy endureth for ever.


136:7 To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:


136:8 The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:


136:9 The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for



136:10 To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy

endureth for ever:


136:11 And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth

for ever:


136:12 With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy

endureth for ever.


136:13 To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy

endureth for ever:


136:14 And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy

endureth for ever:


136:15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his

mercy endureth for ever.


136:16 To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his

mercy endureth for ever.


136:17 To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for



136:18 And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:


136:19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:


136:20 And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:


136:21 And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for



136:22 Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy

endureth for ever.


136:23 Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for



136:24 And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth

for ever.


136:25 Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.


136:26 O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth

for ever.




137:1 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when

we remembered Zion.


137:2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.


137:3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a

song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us

one of the songs of Zion.


137:4 How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land?


137:5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her



137:6 If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of

my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.


137:7 Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem;

who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.


137:8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he

be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.


137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones

against the stones.




138:1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I

sing praise unto thee.


138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for

thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word

above all thy name.


138:3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst

me with strength in my soul.


138:4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they

hear the words of thy mouth.


138:5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the

glory of the LORD.


138:6 Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but

the proud he knoweth afar off.


138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou

shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and

thy right hand shall save me.


138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O

LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.




139:1 O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.


139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou

understandest my thought afar off.


139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted

with all my ways.


139:4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou

knowest it altogether.


139:5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon



139:6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot

attain unto it.


139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from

thy presence?


139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in

hell, behold, thou art there.


139:9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost

parts of the sea;


139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall

hold me.


139:11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night

shall be light about me.


139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth

as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.


139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my

mother's womb.


139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:

marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.


139:15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret,

and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.


139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in

thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were

fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.


139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is

the sum of them!


139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand:

when I awake, I am still with thee.


139:19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me

therefore, ye bloody men.


139:20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take

thy name in vain.


139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I

grieved with those that rise up against thee?


139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.


139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my



139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the

way everlasting.




140:1 Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the

violent man;


140:2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they

gathered together for war.


140:3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison

is under their lips. Selah.


140:4 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from

the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.


140:5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a

net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.


140:6 I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my

supplications, O LORD.


140:7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered

my head in the day of battle.


140:8 Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his

wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.


140:9 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief

of their own lips cover them.


140:10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the

fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.


140:11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall

hunt the violent man to overthrow him.


140:12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted,

and the right of the poor.


140:13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the

upright shall dwell in thy presence.




141:1 Lord, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my

voice, when I cry unto thee.


141:2 Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the

lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.


141:3 Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.


141:4 Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works

with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.


141:5 Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him

reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my

head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.


141:6 When their judges are overthrown in stony places, they shall

hear my words; for they are sweet.


141:7 Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one

cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.


141:8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my

trust; leave not my soul destitute.


141:9 Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the

gins of the workers of iniquity.


141:10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal





142:1 I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD

did I make my supplication.


142:2 I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my



142:3 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my



In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.


142:4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that

would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.


142:5 I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my

portion in the land of the living.


142:6 Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from

my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.


142:7 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the

righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with





143:1 Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: in thy

faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.


143:2 And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight

shall no man living be justified.


143:3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life

down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those

that have been long dead.


143:4 Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me

is desolate.


143:5 I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse

on the work of thy hands.


143:6 I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after

thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.


143:7 Hear me speedily, O LORD: my spirit faileth: hide not thy face

from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.


143:8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee

do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift

up my soul unto thee.


143:9 Deliver me, O LORD, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide



143:10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is

good; lead me into the land of uprightness.


143:11 Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness'

sake bring my soul out of trouble.


143:12 And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them

that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.




144:1 Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war,

and my fingers to fight:


144:2 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer;

my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.


144:3 LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son

of man, that thou makest account of him!


144:4 Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth



144:5 Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and

they shall smoke.


144:6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows,

and destroy them.


144:7 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great

waters, from the hand of strange children;


144:8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right

hand of falsehood.


144:9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an

instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.


144:10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David

his servant from the hurtful sword.


144:11 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose

mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of



144:12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that

our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude

of a palace:


144:13 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store:

that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our



144:14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no

breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our



144:15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is

that people, whose God is the LORD.




145:1 I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for

ever and ever.


145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever

and ever.


145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness

is unsearchable.


145:4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall

declare thy mighty acts.


145:5 I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy

wondrous works.


145:6 And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I

will declare thy greatness.


145:7 They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness,

and shall sing of thy righteousness.


145:8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and

of great mercy.


145:9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his



145:10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall

bless thee.


145:11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy



145:12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the

glorious majesty of his kingdom.


145:13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion

endureth throughout all generations.


145:14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that

be bowed down.


145:15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat

in due season.


145:16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every

living thing.


145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his



145:18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that

call upon him in truth.


145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will

hear their cry, and will save them.


145:20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked

will he destroy.


145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh

bless his holy name for ever and ever.




146:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.


146:2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my

God while I have any being.


146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom

there is no help.


146:4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very

day his thoughts perish.


146:5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope

is in the LORD his God:


146:6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is:

which keepeth truth for ever:


146:7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to

the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:


146:8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them

that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:


146:9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless

and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.


146:10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all

generations. Praise ye the LORD.




147:1 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God;

for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.


147:2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the

outcasts of Israel.
