1 0 LORD, thou hast searched | me, . and

known me. 2 Thou knowest my down-sitting and mine

up-rising, thou under- | -standest · my thought a- ·-far | off.

3 Thou compassest my path and my lying

down, and art acquainted with all • my

| ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but . lo, O Lord, thou | knowest .it | al-.-to-1

-gether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and

laid thine | hand · up-, -on me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it

is high, I | cannot · at- | -tain • un- | -to it. a Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or

whither shall I | flee from • thy | pres

ence ?

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there :

if I make my bed in hell, be- / -hold, - 1 thou · art | there.

9 If I take the wings of the morning, and

dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy | right hand · shall hold me.

11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover

me; even the night shall be

-bout me. 12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but

the night shineth as the day : the darkness and the light are both - a- | -like · to

| thee. 13 How precious also are thy thoughts unto

me, 0 God! how great is the sum • of|

them! 14 If I should count them, they are more in

number than the sand; when I | awake, •

I am still · with | thee. 15 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try

me, and know • my thoughts. 16 And see if there be any wicked way in me,

and lead me in the way — 1 ev- . -er-| -lasting.

PSALM CXLV. 1 I will extol thee, my God, O King; and I

and his / greatness • is un- | -searchable. 4 One generation shall praise thy works to

5. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy

majesty, and of thy wond- . -rous

works. 6 And men shall speak of the might of thy

terrible acts: and I · will de- | -clare ·

thy I greatness. 9 They shall abundantly utter the memory of

thy great goodness, and shall / sing of thy

| righteousness. 8 The LORD is gracious, and full of compas

sion; slow to | anger, · and of great – 1

mercy. 9 The LORD is good to all: and his tender

mercies are over all · his works. 10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD;

and thy | saints · shall | bless — | thee. · 11 They shall speak of the glory of thy king

dom, and talk of thy power; 12 To make known to the sons of men his

mighty acts, and the glorious | majes. ·

-ty | of · his | kingdom. 13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

and thy dominion endureth throughout

| all • gene- / -rations. 14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and rais

eth up all those · that be · bowed

down. 15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou

givest them their meat in · due season. 16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of I eve- . -ry | liv- · ing / thing.

17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and

holy in | all · his works. 18 The LORD is nigh into all them that call

upon him, to all that | call up-.-on | him

in | truth. 19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear

him: he also will hear their cry, and will

| save — them. 20 The LORD preserveth all them that love

him: but all the wicked • will | hede

-stroy. 21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the

LORD: 22 And let all flesh bless his holy | name · for 1 ever · and ever.

PSALM CXLVI. 1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O.

my soul. 2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I wil!

sing praises unto my God while | I have

| an- .-y | being. 3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son

of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his

earth; in that very | day · his I thoughts

| perish. 5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for

his help, whose hope is in the LORD · his

| God: 6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea,

and all that therein is: which keepeth truth - for — ever:

7 Which executeth judgment for the op

pressed: which giveth food to the hungry.

The LORD | looseth · the prisoners : 8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind; the

LORD raiseth them that are bowed down:

the | LORD — | loveth the righteous: 9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he

relieveth the fatherless and widow : but the way of the wicked he turneth •

upside down. 10 The Lord shall reign for ever, even thy God,

O Zion, unto all generations. Praise —
ye • the LORD.

PSALM CXLVII. 1 PRAISE ye the LORD: for it is good to sing

praises unto our God; for it is pleasant;

and praise .is comely. 2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he

gathereth to- | -gether · the outcasts of

| Israel. 3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth

up · their / wounds. 4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth

them | all- | by · their names. 5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his

under- | -standing .is | infinite. 6 The LORD lifteth up the meek : he casteth.

the | wicked · down | to the ground. 7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing

praise upon the harp un- / -to . our God : 8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who

prepareth | rain — | for · the earth.
