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-| |

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.'
