6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, And his circuit unto the ends of it:

And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. 7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul :

The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple, 8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart:

The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold :

Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned : and in keeping of them

there is great reward. 12 Who can understand his errors ? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins ; let them not

have dominion over me : Then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great

transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be

acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

PSALM XX.

To the chlef Musician, A Psalm of David. IHE LORD hear thee in the day of trouble;

The name of the God of Jacob defend thee ; 2 Send thee help from the sanctuary,

And strengthen thee out of Zion; 3 Remember all thy offerings,

And accept thy burnt sacrifice ; (Selah.) 4 Grant thee according to thine own heart,

And fulfil all thy counsel. 5) We will rejoice in thy salvation, And in the name of our God we will sot up our banners :

The LORD fulfil all thy petitions. 6 Now know I That the LORD saveth his anointed; \ He will hear him from his holy heaven

With the saving strength of his right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses :

But we will remember the name of the LORD our God. 8 They are brought down and fallen :

But we are risen, and stand upright. 9 Save, LORD:

| Let the king hear us

PSALM XXI.

The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD;

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. THE

And in thy salvation how greally shall he rejoice! ? Thou hast given him his heart's desire,

And hast not withholden the request of his lips. (Selah.) 3 For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness :

Thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head. 4 He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him,

Even length of days for ever and ever. 5 His glory is great in thy salvation :

Honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him. 6 For thou hast made him most blessed for ever:

Thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance. For the king trusteth in the Lord,

And through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved. 8 Tbine hand shall find out all thine enemies :

Thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: The LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall

devour them. 10 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth,

And their seed from among the children of men. 11 For they intended evil against thee: They imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to

perform. 12 Therefore shalt thou make thein turn their back, When thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against

the face of them. 13 Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength :

So will we sing and praise thy power.

PSALM XXII.

To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shabar, A Psalm of David.

MY
Y God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my

roaring?
2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not;

And in the night season, and am not silent. 3 But thou art holy, Othou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. 4 Our fathers trusted in thee:

They trusted, and thou didst deliver them. 5 They cried unto thee, and were delivered :

They trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 6 But I am a worm, and no man;

A reproach of men, and despised of the people. 7 All they that see me laugh me to scorn :

They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8 He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him :

Let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. 9 But thou art he that took me out of the womb:

Thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts. 10 I was cast upon thee from the womb:

Thou art my God from my mother's belly. 11 Be not far from me; for trouble is ncar;

For there is none to help. 12 Mang, bulls have compassed me:

Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 13 They gaped upon me with their mouths,

As a ravening and a roaring lion. 14/I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint:

My heart is like wax ;

It is melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws;

And thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

16For dogs have compassed me:
The assembly of the wicked have inclosed me:

They pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may tell all my

bones : They look and stare upon me, 18 They part my garments among them,

And cast lots upon my vesture, 19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD:

O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword;

My darling from the power of the dog. 21 Save me from the lion's mouth :

For thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. 22 I will declare thy name unto my brethren :

In the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 23, Ye that fear the Lord, praise him;

All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him;

And fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. 24] For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Neither hath he hid his face from him;

But when he cried unto him, he heard. 25 My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation:

I will pay my vows before them that fear him. 26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied : ? They shall praise the Lord that seek him :

Your heart shall live for ever. 27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD:

And all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 28 For the kingdom is the Lord's :

And he is the governor among the nations. 27 All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: All they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none

can keep alive his own soul. 30 A seed shall serve him ; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a

generation. 31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people

that shall be born, that he hath done this.

A Psalm of David,
THE
THE LORD is my shepherd ;

I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

He leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth

my
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness

For his name's sake. 44 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, TI will fear no evil: for thou art with me;

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

Thou anointest my head with oil ;

My cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

And I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

the seas,

THE earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof;

The world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it

upon And established it upon the floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD?

And who shall stand in his holy place ? 4 He that hath clean bands, and a pure heart;

Who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity,

Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD,

And righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him,

That seek thy face, O Jacob. (Selah.) 7; Lift up your heads, O ye gates; And be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors ;

And the King of glory shall come in.
