O GIVE thanks unto Jehovah, for he is good : for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.
O give thanks to the LORD of lords :

11 for his mercy endureth for ever: With a strong hand, and with a stretched-out arm : 12 for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which divided the Red Sea into parts: 13 for his mercy endureth for ever: And made Israel to pass through the midst of it : 14 for his mercy endureth for ever: But overthrew Pharoah and his host in the Red Sea : 15 for his mercy endureth for ever.

BY the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down,
let my tongue cleave to my palate; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. Remember, O JEHOVAH, the children of Edom 7 in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase, rase it to its very foundation. O city Babylon, who art doomed to destruction, 8 happy he, who rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy he that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
A PSALM OF DAVID. I WILL praise thee with my whole heart : 1 before the chiefs will I sing praise unto thee. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth : for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

and thy right hand shall save me.

or whither shall I flee from thy presence ? 8 Should I mount up into heaven, thou art there : should I make my bed in hell, behold 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 Should I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me;
even the night shall be light about me:
