And art become my salvation.

Is become the head of the corner.

Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed,

It is marvellous in our eyes.

I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go unto the house of the Lord.
Our feet are standing

Within thy gates, O Jerusalem;
Jerusalem, that art builded
As a city that is compact together :
Whither the tribes go up, even the
tribes of the Lord,

For a testimony unto Israel,

To give thanks unto the name of the

For there are set thrones for judgment,
The thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem : They shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls,

And prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions' sakes,
I will now say, Peace be within thee.
For the sake of the house of the Lord

I will seek thy good.

As the mountains are round about

So the Lord is round about his people,
From this time forth and for ever-


For the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; That the righteous put not forth their hands unto iniquity.

Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good,

And to them that are upright in their hearts.

Then was our mouth filled with

And our tongue with singing:
Then said they among the nations,

Though he goeth on his way weeping, bearing forth the seed;

He shall come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him.


Out of the depths have I cried unto thee,
O Lord.

Lord, hear my voice:

Let thine ears be attentive

To the voice of my supplications.
If thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities,
O Lord, who shall stand?

But there is forgiveness with thee,
That thou mayest be feared.

I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait,
And in his word do I hope.

My soul looketh for the Lord,
More than watchmen look for the

Yea, more than watchmen for the
