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

When I shall have learned thy righteous judg.

ments. I will keep thy statutes :

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

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

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

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.
