9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor

he-goats out of thy folds. 10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and

the cattle up- | -on · a | thou- · -sand

hills. 11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and

the wild beasts of the field · are mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for

the world is mine, • and the fulness •

there- | -of. 13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the

blood · of goats ? 14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy

vows. un- / -to the Most | High. 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I

will deliver thee, and thou shalt | glori- •

-fy me. 16 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to

him that ordereth his conversation aright will I | shew the · sal- | -vation of God.

PSALM LI. 1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to

thy | lov- ·-ing | kindness. 2 According unto the multitude of thy tender

mercies | blot · out my · trans- / -gres

sions. 3 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity,

and cleanse me | from • my sin. 4 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and

my | sin • is ever • be- | -fore me.

5 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward

parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt

make me to · know | wisdom. 6 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean :

wash me, and I | shall be | whiter • than

snow. 7 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the

bones which thou hast broken | may •

re- | -joice. 8 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot · out

| all • mine in- | -iquities. 9 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and

renew a right | spirit · with- / -in me. 10 Cast me not away from thy presence; and

take not thy ho- . -ly spi- . -rit | from

me. 11 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation;

and uphold me with thy · free spirit. 12 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways;

and sinners shall be con- | -ver- ·-ted i

un-·-to | thee. 13 Deliver me from blood-guiltiness, O God,

thou God of | my · sal- | -vation: 14 And my tongue shall sing a- | -loud of

thy – | righteousness. 15 O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth

shall shew | forth • thy | praise. 16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I

give it: thou delightest | notin | burnt- -offering.


17 The sacrifices of God are a | bro- •-ken

spirit: 18 A broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou

• wilt not · des- / -pise.

1 TRULY my soul waiteth upon God : from him

cometh | my · sal- -vation. 2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is

my defence; I shall not · be great-:-ly

| moved. 3 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my

expectation | is · from him. 4 He only is my rock and my salvation : he is

my defence; | I shall not · be moved. 5 In God is my salvation and my glory: the

rock of my strength, and my refuge, 1 is •

in God. 6 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour

out your heart before him: God is a |

refuge · for | us. 7 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and

men of high degree are • a lie. 8 To be laid in the balance, they are alto

gether | light-·-er than – vanity. 9 Trust not in oppression, and become not |

vain · in | robbery: 10 If riches increase, set | not · your heart • up- / -on them.

11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard

this; that power belongeth | un- · -to

God. 12 Also unto thee, O LORD, belongeth mercy:

for thou renderest to every man ac- -cord•-ing | to his work.

PSALM LXIII. 1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek

- thee: 2 My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth

for thee in a dry and thirsty | land, .

where no | wa- ·-ter | is; 3 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I

have seen thee in the sanctuary. 4. Because thy loving-kindness is better than

life, my I lips · shall | praise — | thee. 5 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift

up my hands in • thy | name. 6 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow

and fatness; and my mouth shall praise

• thee with | joy-.-ful | lips. 7 When I remember thee upon my bed, and

meditate on thee in the night - 1

watches. 8 Because thou hast been my help, therefore

in the shadow of thy | wings • will |I. re- | -joice.

1 PRAISE waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and

unto thee shall the vow · be per- |

-formed. 2 0 thou that hearest prayer, unto thee •

shall | all • flesh | come. 3 Iniquities pre- | -vail • a- | -gainst me: 4 As for our transgressions, thou · shalt

purge them • a-1 -way. 5 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and

causest to approach unto thee, that he

may dwell in thy | courts. 6 We shall be satisfied with the goodness of

thy house, / even • of thy | ho-.-ly | tem

ple. By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou

answer us, O God of our · sal- 1 -vation; 8 Who art the confidence of all the ends of the

earth, and of them that are afar off ·

up-|-on · the sea : 9 Which by his strength setteth fast the moun

tains; being | girded · with power: 10 Which stilleth' the noise of the seas, the

noise of their waves, and the tu-:-mult |

of the people. 11 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts

are afraid at | thy – tokens. 12 Thou makest the out-goings of the morning

and | even- ·-ing | to · re- / -joice.
