3 But let the righteous be glad and rejoice before God : let them also be merry and joyful.
40 sing unto God, and sing praises unto his Name : magnify him that rideth upon the heavens, as it were upon an horse; praise him in his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
5 He is a Father of the fatherless, and defendeth the cause of the widows : even God in his holy habitation.
6 He is the God that maketh men to be of one mind in an house, and bringeth the prisoners out of captivi. ty : but letteth the runagates continue in scarceness.
70 God, when thou wentest forth before the people : when thou wentest through the wilderness,
8 The earth shook, and the heavens dropped at the présence of God: even as Sinai also was moved at the presence of God, who is the God of Israel.
9 Thou, O God, sentest a gracious rain upon thine inheritance : and refreshedst it when it was weary.
10 Thy congregation shall dwell therein : for thou, O God, hast of thy goodness prepared for the poor.
11 The Lord gave the word : great was the company of the preachers.
12 Kings with their armies did flee, and were discomfited : and they of the houshold divided the spoil.
13 Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye bre as the wings of a dove : that is covered with sil. ver wings, and her feathers like gold.
14 When the Almighty scattered kings for their sake : then were they as white as snow in Salmon.
15 As the hill of Basan, so is God's hill : even an high hill, as the hill of Basan.
16 Why hop ye so, ye high hills? this is God's hill, in the which it pleaseth him to dwell : yea, the Lord will abide in it for ever.
17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels : and the Lord is among them, as in the holy place of Sinai.
18 Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts for men : yea, even for thine enemies, that the Lord God might dwell among them.
19 Praised be the Lord daily : even the God who helpeth us, and poureth his benefits upon us,
20 He is our God, even the God of whom cometh salvation : God is the Lord, by whom we escape death.
21 God shall wound the head of his enemies : and
the hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his wickedness.
22 The Lord hath said, I will bring my people again, as I did from Basan: mine own will I bring again, as I did sometime from the deep of the sea.
23 That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies : and that the tongue of thy dogs may be red through the same.
24 It is well seen, O God, how thou goest : how thou,
my God and King, goest in the sanctuary. 25 The singers go before, the minstrels follow after: in the midst are the damsels playing with the timbrels,
26 Give thanks, O Israel, unto God the Lord in the congregations : from the ground of the heart.

PSALM 69. Salvum me fac., AVE me, O God : for the waters are
are come in, er
even % I stick fast in the deep mire, where no ground is :
Saxte my soul.
I am come into deep waters, so that the floods run Over me.
3 I am weary of crying; my throat is dry: my sight faileth me for waiting so long upon my God.
4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head : they that are mine enemies, and would destroy me guiltless, are mighty.
5 I paid them the things that I never took : God, thou knowest my simpleness, and my faults are not hid from thee.
6 Let not them that trust in thee, O Lord God of hosts, be ashamed for my cause : let not those that seek thee be confounded through me, O Lord God of Israel.
7 And why? for thy sake have I suffered reproof: shame hath covered my face.
8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren : even an alien unto my mother's children.
9 For the zeal of thine house hath even eaten me : and the rebukes of them that rebuked thee are fallen upon me.
10 I wept, and chastened myself with fasting : and that was turned to my reproof.
11 I put on sackcloth also : and they jested upon me.
12 They that sit in the gate speak against me: and the drunkards make songs upon me.
13 But, Lord, I make my prayer unto thee : in an acceptable time.
14 Hear me, O God, in the multitude of thy mercy : even in the truth of thy salvation.
15 Take me out of the mire, that I sink not: 0 let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
16 Let not the water flood drown me, neither let the deep swallow me up : and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
17 Hear me, O Lord, for thy loving-kindness is comfortable : turn thee unto me according to the multitude of thy mercies.
18 And hide not thy face from thy servant, for I am in trouble : 0 haste thee, and hear me.
19 Draw nigh unto my soul, and save it : O deliver me, because of mine enemies.
20 Thou hast known my reproof, my shame, and my dishonour : mine adversaries are all in thy sight.
21 Thy rebuke hath broken my heart; I am full of heaviness : I looked for some to have pity on me, but there was no man, neither found I any to comfort me.
22 They gave me gall to eat : and when I was thirsty they gave me vinegar to drink.
23 Let their table be made a snare to take themselves withal : and let the things that should have been for their wealth be unto them an occasion of falling.
24 Let their eyes be blinded, that they see not : and ever bow thou down their backs.
25 Pour out thine indignation upon them : and let thy
wrathful displeasure take hold of them.
26 Let their habitation be void : and no man to dwell in their tents.
27 For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten : and they talk how they may vex them whom thou hast wounded.
28 Let them fall from one wickedness to another : and not come into thy righteousness.
29 Let them be wiped out of the book of the living : and not be written among the righteous.
30 As for me, when I am poor and in heaviness : thy help, o God, shall lift me up.
31 I will praise the name of God with a song : and magnify it with thanksgiving.
32 This also shall please the Lord : better than a bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
33 The humble shall consider this, and be glad : seek ye after God, and your soul shall live.
34 For the Lord heareth the poor : and despiseth not his prisoners.
35 Let heaven and earth praise him : the sea, and all that moveth therein.
36 For God will save Sion, and build the cities of Judah : that men may dwell there, and have it in possession.
37 The posterity also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
PSALM 70. Deus in adjutorium. ASTE thee, O God, to deliver me : make haste 2 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward and put to confusion that wish me evil.
3 Let them for their reward be soon brought to shaine : that cry over me, There, there.
HAo help me, o Lord.
4. But let all those that seek thee be joyful and glad in thee : and let all such as delight in thy salvation say alway, The Lord be praised.
5 As for me, I am poor and in misery : haste thee unto me, O God.
6 Thou art my helper, and my redeemer : 0 Lord, make no long tarrying.
be put to confusion : but rid me, and deliver me, in thy righteousness; incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
2 Be thou my strong hold, whereunto I may alway resort : thou hast promised to help me, for thou art my house of defence, and my castle.
3 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the ungodly : out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
4 For thou, O Lord God, art the thing that I long for : thou art my hope, even from my youth.
5 Through thee have I been holden up ever since I was born : thou art he that took me out of my mo. ther's womb; my praise shall be always of thee.
6 I am become as it were a monster unto many : but my sure trust is in thee.
70 let my mouth be filled with thy praise : that I may sing of thy glory and honour all the day long.
8 Cast me not away in the time of age : forsake me not when my strength faileth me.
9 For mine enemies speak against me, and they that lay wait for my soul take their counsel together, saying: God hath forsaken bim; persecute him, and take him, for there is none to deliver him.
10 Go not far from me, O God : my God, haste thee to help me.
11 Let them be confounded and perish that are against my soul : let them be covered with shame and dishonour that seek to do me evil.
12 As for me, I will patiently abide alway: and will praise thee more and more.
13 My mouth shall daily speak of thy righteousness and salvation : for I know no end thereof.
