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


I will praise thee with uprightness of heart: When I shall have learned thy righteous judg


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.

Out of the depths:

PSALM 130.

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:

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.
