5 Thou preparest a table before me in the pres

ence of mine enemies: thou anointest my

head with oil; my | cup • runneth | over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house · of the Lord · for ever.


1 The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness

thereof; the world, and they that dwell •

there- -in. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and

es- | -tablished · it up-|-on · the 1 floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD?

and who shall stand in his ho-.-ly place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;

who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity,

nor | sworn — | de-_ | -ceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD,

and righteousness from the God of his ·

sal- | -vation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek

him, that seek • thy | face, : 0 | Jacob. 7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye

lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King

of glory shall · come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? the LORD strong

and mighty, the LORD — | mighty • in 1 battle.

9 Lift up your heads, 0 ye gates; even lift

them up, ye everlasting doors; and the

King of glory shall · come in. 10 Who is this King of glory ? the LORD of

hosts, | he is the King of glory.

PSALM XXV. 1 Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift | up • my soul. 2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be

ashamed, let not mine ene- •-mies | tri- •

umph over me. 3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed:

let them be ashamed which trans- | -gress

with-•-out cause. 4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; | teach me

thy - | paths. 5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for

thou art the God of my salvation; on thee

do I wait · all the day. 6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and

thy loving-kindnesses; for | they have •

been | ever · of old. 7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my

transgressions; according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness'

sake, .0 | LORD. 8 Good and upright is the Lord: therefore

will he teach | sin- ·-ners | in · the way. 9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and

the meek will he | teach · his way. 10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and

truth unto such as keep his cove- : -nant | and · his testimonies.

him shall is he that great.

11 For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine

iniquity; for, it is great. 12 What man is he that feareth the LORD?

him shall he teach in the way that • he · shall | choose. 13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed

shall in- | -herit · the earth. 14 The secret of the LORD is with them that

fear him; and he will shew them his

- covenant 15 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not

be ashamed; for I put my | trust · in

thee. 16 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me;

for 11 — wait on thee.


.1 Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in

mine integrity: I have trusted also in the

LORD; therefore I shall not slide. 2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try

my | reins — and my heart. 3 For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes :

and I have walked in thy - truth. 4 I have not sat with vain persons, neither

will I go | in-| with · dis- | -semblers. 5 I have hated the congregation of evil doers;

and will not sit · with the | wicked. 6 I will wash my hands in innocency: so will

1 compass • thine altar, .0 | LORD:

.7 That I may publish with the voice of

thanksgiving, and tell of all thy | won

. drous works.
8 LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy

house, and the place where thine - 1
hon- ·-our dwelleth.

9 Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my

life with blood-:-y | men: 10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right

· hand is full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity:

redeem me, and be merciful / un- ·-to

me. 12 My foot standeth in an even place : in the

congregations will|I — bless • the LORD.

PSALM XXVII. 1 THE LORD is my light and my salvation; /

whom shall · I | fear ? 2 The Lord is the strength of my life; of

3 When the wicked, even mine enemies and

my foes, came upon me to consume me,

5 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that

will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of .my |

life : 6 To behold the beauty of the Lord, and to

in- | -quire · in his — | temple... in For in the time of trouble' he shall hide me

in his · pa- | -vilion: 8 In the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide

me; he shall set me | up · up-|-on a

| rock. 9 And now shall mine head be lifted up above

mine enemies | round · a- |-bout me: 10 Therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sac

rifices of joy: I will sing, yea, I will sing

I prai- . -ses | unto · the LORD. 11 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice:

have mercy also upon me, and | an- •

-swer me. 12 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my

heart said unto thee, Thy | face, . LORD, I

will. I seek. 13 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy

servant a-1-way • in anger: 14 Thou hast been my help; leave me not,

neither forsake me, 0 ] God · of my ·

sal- | -vation. 15 When my father and my mother forsake

me, then the LORD will take · me up. 16 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me

in a plain path, be- | -cause • of mine | enemies.
