The Old Testament
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for
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
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
105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD,
that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the
upright shall be blessed.
112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness
endureth for ever.
112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is
gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his
affairs with discretion.
112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in
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.
113:4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the
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,
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
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they
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
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
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
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
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
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
119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of
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
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
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
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
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.
119:40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy
119:41 Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation,
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto
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
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
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
119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten
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
119:148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
135:5 For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
140:1 Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the
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
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
145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness
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
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
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
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.
147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their
147:5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is
147:6 The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the
147:7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp
unto our God:
147:8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the
earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
147:9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which
147:10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not
pleasure in the legs of a man.
147:11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that
hope in his mercy.
147:12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
147:13 For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed
thy children within thee.
147:14 He maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the
finest of the wheat.
147:15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth
147:16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like
147:17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his
147:18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind
to blow, and the waters flow.
147:19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments
147:20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments,
they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD.
148:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise
him in the heights.
