17 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see

the goodness of the LORD, in the land •

of the living. 18 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and

he shall strengthen thine heart: , wait, • I say, 'on the LORD.

PSALM XXIX. 1 Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto

the LORD | glory • and strength. 2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his

name; worship the LORD · in the | beauty

• of holiness. 3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters :

the God of glory thundereth : the LORD is

up- |-on • many | waters. 4 The voice of the LORD is powerful; the

voice of the LORD • is | full of | majesty. 5 The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars;

yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars • of

Lebanon. 6 The voice of the LORD di- | -videth · the

flames • of fire. 7 The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilder

ness; the LORD shaketh the wilderness •

of Kadesh. 8 The LORD sitteth upon the flood; yea, the

| LORD • sitteth | King · for ever. 9 The Lord will give strength un- | -to his

people. 10 The Lord will | bless · his people with | peace.

PSALM XXXIII. 1 REJOICE in the LORD, O ye righteous; for

praise is | comely · for the upright. 2 Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him

with the psaltery and an instru- • -ment

of | ten — strings. 3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully

with a | loud noise. 4 For the word of the Lord is right; and all

his works are done • in truth. 5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the

earth is full of the goodness of the

LORD. 6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens

made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in

store-houses. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the

inhabitants of the world • stand in awe

of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he com

manded, and it stood — fast. 10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the hea

then to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none · ef- | -fect.

11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever,

the thoughts of his heart to | all • gene

-rations. 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the

LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own · in- | -her- ·-- |

-tance. 13 The Lord looketh from heaven; he behold

eth all the sons · of men. 14 From the place of his habitation he looketh

upon all the in- | -habi- • -tants of the

earth. 15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he con

sidereth | all · their | works. 16 There is no king saved by the multitude of

an host: a mighty man is not de- / -liv

er'd · by much – strength. 17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither

shall he deliver any by | his great

strength. 18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them

that fear him, upon them that I hope • in . I his — | mercy. 19 To deliver their soul from death, and to

keep them a- | -live · in | famine. 20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our

help · and our — | shield. 21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because

we have trusted in his ho- •-ly | name. 22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, ac- |

-cording · as we hope • in | thee.

PSALM XXXIV. 1 I WILL bless the LORD at all times: his

praise shall continually be in • my |


2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD:

the humble shall | hear · there- | -of, and • be glad.

30 magnify the LORD with me, and let us

exalt his name • to- | -gether. 4 I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and

de- / -liver'd · me from all my fears.

5 They looked unto him, and were lightened :

and their faces were not · a- | -shamed. 6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard

him, and saved him out • of all · his troubles.

n The angel of the LORD encampeth round

about them that fear him, and de- / -liver

•-eth | them. 8 O taste and see that the LORD is good :

blessed is the man · that trusteth: in him.

9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints; for there

is no want to them that fear — him. 10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hun

ger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want - 1 any good thing.

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will

teach you the fear of the LORD. 12 What man is he that desireth life, and

loveth many days, that he · may see -

| good ? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips

from speak-·-ing | guile. 14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek | peace

= 1 and pur- | -sue it. 15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the right

eous, and his ears are open un- / -to • their

| cry. 16 The face of the LORD is against them that

do evil, to cut off the re- / -membrance ·

of | them from the earth. 17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, .. and delivereth them out of all · their

troubles. 18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a

broken heart; and saveth such as be •

of a con- ·-trite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous;

but the LORD delivereth him out of :

them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of

them is | broken. 21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that

hate the righteous / shall · be desolate. 22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants :

and none of them that trust · in him shall · be desolate.
