Who redeemeth thy life from destruction:

Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness

and tender mercies. Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things:

So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment:

For all that are oppressed.
He made known his ways unto Moses :

His acts unto the children of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious:

Slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide:

Neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins:

Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth:

So great is his mercy toward them that fear

him. As far as the east is from the west:

So far hath he removed our transgressions

from us. Like as a father pitieth his children:

So the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame:

He remembereth that we are dust. As for man, his days are as grass:

As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone:

And the place thereof shall know it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him:

And his righteousness unto children's chil

dren. To such as keep his covenant:

And to those that remember his command

ments to do them. The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens:

And his kingdom ruleth over all. Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength:

That do his commandments, hearkening unto

the voice of his word. Bless ye the Lord, all ye his hosts :

Ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure. Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: Bless the Lord, O my soul.

PSALM 110. The Lord said unto my Lord:

Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine

enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion:

Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 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.
The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent:

Thou art a priest for ever after the order of

The Lord at thy right hand :

Shall strike through kings in the day of his

wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies :

He shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way:

Therefore shall he lift up the head.

PSALM 111.

Praise ye the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart:

In the assembly of the upright, and in the

congregation. The works of the Lord are great:

Sought out of all them that have pleasure

therein. His work is honorable and glorious :

And his righteousness endureth for ever. He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered :

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He hath given meat unto them that fear him:

He will ever be mindful of his covenant.

He hath shewed his people the power of his works:

That he may give them the heritage of the

heathen. The works of his hands are verity and judgment:

All his commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever:

And are done ir truth and uprightness. He sent redemption unto his people:

He hath commanded his covenant for ever,

holy and reverend is his name. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wis


A good understanding have all they that do his commandments, his praise endureth for ever.

PSALM 118.
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good:

Because his mercy endureth for ever.
Let Israel now say:

"That his mercy endureth for ever. Let the house of Aaron now say:

That his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the Lord say:

That his mercy endureth for ever. I called upon the Lord in distress:

The Lord answered me, and set me in a large

place. The Lord is on my side, I will not fear:

What can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me:

Therefore shall I see my desire upon them

that hate me. It is better to trust in the Lord:

Than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord:

Than to put confidence in princes. All nations compassed me about:

But in the name of the Lord will I destroy

them. They compassed me about, yea, they compassed me about:

But in the name of the Lord I will destroy


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. Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall:

But the Lord helped me.
The Lord is my strength and song:

And is become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the 'righteous :

The right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. The right hand of the Lord is exalted:

The right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live:
