And declare the works of the Lord. The Lord hath chastened me sore:

But he hath not given me over unto death. Open to me the gates of righteousness :

I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord. This gate of the Lord: .

Into which the righteous shall enter.
I will praise thee, for thou hast heard me:

And art become my salvation.
The stone which the builders refused:

Is become the headstone of the corner.
This is the Lord's doing :

It is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day which the Lord hath made:

We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord :

O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord :

We have blessed you out of the house of the

Lord. God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light:

Bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the

horns of the altar.
Thou art my God, and I will praise thee:

Thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good:

For his mercy endureth for ever.

PSALM 119.- Part I.
Blessed are the undefiled in the way:

Who walk in the law of the Lord.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies :

And that seek him with the whole heart.
They also do no iniquity:

They walk in his ways. Thou hast commanded us:

To keep thy precepts diligently.
O that my ways were directed:

To keep thy statutes !
Then shall I not be ashamed:

When I have respect unto all thy command-
ments.
I will praise thee with uprightness of heart:
When I shall have learned thy righteous judg-

ments. I will keep thy statutes:

O forsake me not utterly.

Part II. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way:

By taking heed thereto according to thy Word. With my whole heart have I sought thee:

O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy Word have I hid in mine heart:

That I might not sin against thee.

Blessed art thou, O Lord:

Teach me thy statutes. With my lips have I declared:

All the judgments of thy mouth.
I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies:

As much as in all riches.
I will meditate in thy precepts:

And have respect unto thy ways.
I will delight myself in thy statutes:

I will not forget thy Word.

Part III.
Deal bountifully with thy servant:

That I may live, and keep thy Word.
Open thou mine eyes:

That I may behold wondrous things out of

thy law. I am a stranger in the earth:

Hide not thy commandments from me. My soul breaketh for the longing :

That it hath unto thy judgments at all times. Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed :

Which do err from thy commandments. Remove from me reproach and contempt:

For I have kept thy testimonies. Princes also did sit and speak against me:

But thy servant did meditate in thy statutes. Thy testimonies also are my delight:

And my counsellors.

PSALM 121.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills :

From whence cometh my help.
My hely cometh from the Lord:

Which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:

He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel:

Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper:

The Lord is thy shade unto thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day:

Nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:

He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in:

From this time forth, and even for evermore.

PSALM 126.
When the Lord turned again the captivity of
Zion:

We were like them that dream.
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. The Lord hath done great things for us:

Whereof we are glad.

Turn again our captivity, O Lord:

As the streams in the south. They that sow in tears:

Shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed:

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

PSALM 130. Out of the depths:

Have I cried unto thee, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice:

Let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my

supplications.
If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities :

O Lord, who shall stand ?
But there is forgiveness with thee:

That thou mayest be feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait:

And in his Word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning :

I say, more than they that watch for the

morning Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy:

And with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel :

From all his iniquities.
