I will declare the decree:
The Lord hath said unto me, thou art my
Son, this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance:
And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy
possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron:
Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's
vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings:
Be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear:
And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little:
Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
PSALM 8. O Lord, our God, how excellent is thy Name in all the earth:
Who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies :
That thou mightest still the enemy and the
avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers:
The moon and the stars, which thou hast or
dained. What is man,that thou art mindful of him:
And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels:
And hast crowned him with glory and honor. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands:
Thou hast put all things under his feet.
Yea, and the beasts of the field.
And whatsoever passeth through the paths of
the seas. O Lord, our Lord:
How excellent is thy Name in all the earth!
Preserve me, O God:
For in thee do I put my trust. O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, thou art my Lord:
My goodness extendeth not to thee. But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent:
In whom is all my delight.
That hasten after another god.
Their drink offerings of blood will I not offer:
Nor take up their names into my lips. The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: Thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places:
Yea, I have a goodly heritage. I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel:
My reins also instruct me in the night-seasons. I have set the Lord always before me:
Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be
moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth:
My flesh also shall rest in hope.
Neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to
see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
In thy presence is fulness of joy, at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
The heavens declare the glory of God:
And the firmament sheweth his handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech:
And night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language:
Where their voice is not heard.
And their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun:
Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man
to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it:
And there is nothing hid from the heat there
of. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul:
The testimony of the Lord is sure, making
wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart:
The commandment of the Lord is pure, en
lightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever :
The judgments of the Lord are true and
righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned:
And in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors:
Cleanse thou me from secret faults.
Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins, let them not have dominion over me:
Then shall I be upright, and I shall be inno
cent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight:
O Lord, my strength, and my Redeemer.
The Lord is my Shepherd:
I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul :
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his Name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies :
Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup run
neth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for
PSALM 24. The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereoi
The world, and they that dwell therein.
