1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my
med- ·- - | -tation. 2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King,
and my God: for unto | thee- will •
I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O
LORD; in the morning will I direct my
prayer unto thee, and will · look | up. 4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure
in wickedness: neither shall e- · -vil dwell · with | thee.
5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:
thou hatest all workers • of in- | -iquity. 6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing:
the LORD will abhor the bloody · and de- / -ceit · ful man.
7 But as for me, I will come into thy house
in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy | ho · ly |
temple. 8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness,
because of mine enemies; make thy way
| straight · be- | -fore · my | face. 9 But let all those that put their trust in thee
rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, be
cause thou • de- / -fendest them: 10 Let them also that love thy | name · be
joyful · in | thee.
11 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; 12 With favour wilt thou compass himas
with · a shield.
PSALM VIII. 1 0 LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name
in | all · the earth! 2 Who hast set thy | glory · a- |-bove • the
heavens. 3 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings
hast thou ordained strength be- | -cause of
• thine enemies. 4 That thou mightest still the ene- • -my |
and · the a- / -venger. 5 When I consider thy heavens, the work of
thy fingers; the moon and the stars, which
| thou hast or- | -dained : 6 What is man, that thou art mindful of him?
and the son of man, that thou / visit- •
est | him? ng For thou hast made him a little lower than
the angels, and hast crowned him with
glory · and honour. 8 Thou madest him to have dominion over
the works of thy hands; thou hast put | all
• things | under · his | feet: 9 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of
the field; the fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through
the paths · of the seas. 10 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy
name · in all · the earth !
PSALM XVI. 1 PRESERVE me, O God : for in thee do I put:
my trust. 2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord,
Thou art my Lord: my goodness ex- |
ten- • -deth | not •to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and
to the excellent, in whom is | all · my
de- !-light. 4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten
after another god: their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their
names • in- / -to • my lips. 5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance
and of my cup: thou main-| -tainest.my |
lot. 6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant
places; yea, I have a good-.-ly | her
itage. 7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me
counsel: my reins also instruct me in the
night — | seasons. 8 I have set the Lord always before me: be
cause he is at my right hand, I shall •
not | be — | moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory
rejoiceth: my flesh also shall | rest .in |
hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in the
grave; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy | One · to see · cor- | -ruption.
11 Thou wilt show me the path · of life: 12 In thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy
right hand there are pleasures · for | ev • er-1-more.
PSALM XIX. 1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and
the firmament sheweth his han- • -dy
work. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night •
unto | night · sheweth | knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where
their | voice is · not heard. 4 Their line is gone out through all the earth,
and their words • to the end · of the
world. 5 In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun :
which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to
run · a race. 6 His going forth is from the end of the hea
ven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing | hid · from the heat
• there- | -of. 7 The law of the Lord is perfect, con- | -vert
ing the soul : 8 The testimony of the Lord is sure, .mak
ing / wise • the | simple. 9 The statutes of the Lord are right, re- |-joic
ing · the heart: • 10 The commandment of the Lord is | pure, •
en- | -lightening the eyes.
11 The fear of the Lord is clean, en- / -during •
for ever: 12 The judgments of the Lord are true . and
righteous • alto- | -gether. 13 More to be desired are they than gold, yea,
than much fine gold : sweeter also than
honey and the hon · eycomb. 14 Moreover, by them is thy servant warned:
and in keeping of them. there is great •
re- | -ward. 15 Who can understand his errors ? cleanse
thou me from se- ·-cret | faults. 16 Keep back thy servant also from presump
tuous sins; let them not have · do- 1 ..-min • ions over me: 17 Then shall I be upright, and I shall be inno
cent from the great · transgression. 18 Let the words of my mouth, and the medi
tation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my • re- | -deemer.
PSALM XXIII. 1 THE LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures :
he leadeth me be-|-side the still — waters. 3 He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for his name's – 1
sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy | rod and · thy staff · they comfort me.'
