The angel of the Lord encampeth around about them that fear him:
And delivereth them.
Blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
For there is no want to them that fear him.. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger:
But they that seek the Lord shall not want
any good thing Come, ye children, hearken unto me:
I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life:
And loveth many days, that he may see good ? Keep thy tongue from evil:
And thy lips from speaking guile.
Seek peace, and pursue it.
And his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil:
To cut off the remembrance of them from the
earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth:
And delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart:
And saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous :
But the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones :
Not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked:
And they that hate the righteous shall be
desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants :
And none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
PSALM 46. God is our refuge and strength:
A very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed :
And though the mountains be carried into the
midst of the sea. Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled:
Though the mountains shake with the swel
ling thereof. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God:
The holy place of the tabernacles of the Most
High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved :
God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved :
He uttered his voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us :
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Come, behold the works of the Lord:
What desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth:
He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in
sunder, he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen, I will
be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us:
The God of Jacob is our refuge.
PSALM 51. Have mercy upon me, I God, according to thy lovingkindness:
According unto the multitude of thy tender
mercies, blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity:
And cleanse me from my sin.
And my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight:
That thou mightest be justified when thou
speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity :
And in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: And in the hidden part thou shalt make me
to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean:
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness:
That the bones which thou hast broken may
rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins: :
And blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God:
And renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence:
And take not thy Holy Spirit from me.
And uphold me with thy free Spirit.
And sinners shall be converted unto thee. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation:
And my tongue shall sing aloud of thy right
eousness. O Lord, open thou my lips:
And my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. For thou desirest not sacrifice, else would I give it :
Thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit:
A broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion:
Build thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering :
Then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
And cause his face to shine upon us.
Thy saving health among all nations.
Let all the people praise thee.
For thou shalt judge the people righteously,
and govern the nations upon earth. Let the people praise thee, O God:
Let all the people praise thee.
And God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us :
And all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
PSALM 84. How amiable are thy tabernacles, O Lord of hosts! My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord :
My heart and my flesh crieth out for the liv
