3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and say
est, Return, ye children of men. 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as
yesterday when it is past, and as a i
watch - | in: the night. 5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood;
they are as a sleep; in the morning they
are like grass which | grow-: -eth | up. 6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth
up; in the evening it is cut down, - |
and — | withereth. 7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by hy wrath | are

secret sins in the light . of thy - 1 countenance.
9 For all our days are passed away in thy
wrath: we spend our years, as a | tale
that is | told. 10 The days of our years are threescore years
and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut | off ·
and we fly •a- -way. 11. Who knoweth the power of thine anger ?
even according to thy fear, / so is thy |
wrath. 12 So teach us to number our days, that we
may ap- | -ply · our | hearts •'unto | wisdom.
13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent
thee con- -cerning thy servants. 14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad

in thou hast afflicted us, and the years
wherein | we have · seen | evil. 16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants,
and thy | glo- • -ry | unto their children.
17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be
upon us: and establish thou the work of

Most High shall abide under the shadow •
of th' Al- | -mighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and
my fortress: my God; in him

of the fowler, and from the 1 noi- . -some

under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield · and buckler.
5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by
night; nor for the arrow that | flieth by |
day : 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in dark

PSALM XCII. 1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the
LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, I
0. Most High. 2 To shew forth thy loving-kindness in the
morning, and thy | faithful-• -ness | eve
-ry night. 3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon
the psaltery; upon the harp with a sol- .
-emn sound. 4 For thou, O LORD, hast made me glad through
thy work: I will triumph in the works ·
of thy - | hands. 5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy
thoughts are ver- • -y | deep. 6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a
| fool · under-| -stand - this. 7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and
when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be de- | -stroyed •
for ever. 8 But thou, LORD, art most | high · for ev
-er- / -more. 9 For lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for lo, thine
| enemies · shall perish. 10 All the workers of in- | -iqui- .-ty | shall ·
11 The righteous shall flourish like the palm
tree: he shall grow like a cedar
Lebanon. 12 Those that be planted in the house of the
LORD shall flourish in the courts

13 They shall bring forth fruit in old age; they
shall be | fat . and | flourishing; 14 To shew that the LORD is upright; he is my
rock, and there is no un- | -righteous : -ness | in

wherewith he hath girded · him- | -self: 2 The world also is established, that it can-·

3 Thy throne is established of old : thou art
from ev-.-er- / -lasting. 4 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods
have lifted up their voice; the floods •
lift | up · their waves. 5 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise
of many waters, yea, than the mighty |
waves of the sea. 6 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness be
cometh thine house, .0 | LORD, for
