17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any

that go down into silence. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time

forth and for evermore. Praise — the - LORD.

PSALM CXVI. 1 I love the Lord, because he hath heard my

voice and my | sup- • -pli- | -cations. 2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,

therefore will I call upon him as | long ·

as I = | live. 3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and

the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I

found trouble · and sorrow. 4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD;

O Lord, I be- 1 -seech thee, · de- | -liver:

my | soul. 5 Gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yeą,

our God is, merciful. 6 The LORD preserveth the simple : I was

brought | low, and he | help- • -ed | me. 7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the

LORD hath dealt | bounti- • -fully | with

thee. 8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death,

mine eyes from | tears, and my | feet •

from | falling 9. I will walk before the Lord in the / land

of the living 10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was

great- ·-ly | af- -- | -flicted :

11 What shall I render unto the LORD for all

his benefits · toward | me? 12 I will take the cup of salvation, and call

upon the name — 1 of the LORD. 13 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in

the presence of all · his people. 14 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the

death · of his — saints. 15 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy

servant, and the son of thy handmaid :

thou hast | loosed · my | bonds. 16 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanks

giving, and will call upon the name

| of the LORD. 17 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in

the presence of all · his people. 18 In the courts of the Lord's house, in the

midst of thee, O Jerusalem. | Praise — 1 ye • the LORD.

PSALM CXVIII. 1 O GIVE thanks unto the LORD: for he is

good : because his mercy en- | -dureth •

for ever. 2 Let Israel now say, that his | mercy.en- |

-dureth · for ever. 3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his

mercy en--dureth · for | ever. 4 Let them now that fear the Lord say, that

his | mercy · en- | -dureth · for ever.

5 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I

will go into them, and I will | praise •

the LORD. 6 This gate of the LORD, into which the

right-.-eous | shall — | enter. 7 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me,

and art become my · sal- | -vation. 8 The stone which the builders refused is

become the head · stone of the cor

ner. 9 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvellous |

in · our eyes. 10 This is the day which the Lord hath made;

we will re- 1 -joice and be glad .in | it. 11 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD,

I beseech thee, send | now . pros- | -perity. 12 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of

the Lord: we have blessed you out of

the house — of the LORD. 13 God is the LORD, which hath shewed us

light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even

unto the horns • of the altar. 14 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee:

thou art my God, I will ex- | -alt - 1 thee.

15 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he · is

good : 16 For his | mercy · en- | -dureth · for ever.

PSALM CXXI. 1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from

whence cometh my | help. 2 My help cometh from the LORD, which

made — | heaven · and | earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved, he

that keepeth thee will • not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither |

slum- ·-ber | nor — | sleep. 5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy

shade upon thy right - hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the

moon - 1 by - | night. 7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil:

he shall pre--serve • thy soul. 8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and

thy coming in from this time forth, and even · for ev-'-er- / -more.

PSALM CXXII. 1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us

go into the house of the Lord. 2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Je

rusalem. Jerusalem is builded as a city

that I is · com- | -pact · to- | -gether. 3 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the

LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give

thanks unto the name · of the LORD. 4 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones • of the house of David.

5 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall |

prosper • that love thee. 6 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity

with- |-in — | thy — | palaces. .9 For my brethren and companjons' sakes, I

will now say, | Peace · be with- | -in

thee. 8 Because of the house of the LORD our God I

will seek - | thy — | good.

· 1 WHEN the Lord turned again the captivity

of Zion, we were like them that

dream. 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter,

and our | tongue — with — | singing. 3 Then said they among the heathen, The LORD

hath done great things · for them. 4 The Lord hath done great things for us;

where- / -of - we are glad. 5 Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the

streams · in the south. 6 They that sow in tears shall | reap - | in

- joy. 7 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing

precious seed, shall doubtless come a-1

-gain · with re- / -joicing, 8 Bringing his sheaves - -- with him.
