5 Every day they wrest.my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

7 Shall they escape by iniquity ? in thine anger

cast down the people, o God. 8 Thou tellest my wanderings : put thou my tears into thy bottle : are they not in thy book?

9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back : this I know ; for God is for me.

10 In God I will praise his word 3 in the Lord will I praise his word.

11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me,

12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death ; wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living ?

PSALM LVII.

BE

E merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me : for my soul trusteth

thee : yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

3 He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selab. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

4 My soul is among lions; and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens ; let thy glory be above all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down : they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise.

8 Awake up, my glory; awake psaltery and harp; I myself will awake early.

ġ I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing unto thee among the nations :

10 For thy mercy is great unto the hea. vens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens : let thy glory be above all the earth,

PSALM LVIII.

ye sons

DO

Oye indeed speak righteousness, O

congregation ? do ye judge uprightly, O

of men ? 2 Yea, in heart you work wickedness ; you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; they are like the deaf adder, that stoppeth her ear;

6 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Lord,

7 Let them melt away as waters which run continally : when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

them, that they may not be; and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

14 And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and

go round about the city.

15 Let them wander up and down for meat and grudge if they be not satisfied.

16 But I will sing of thy power: yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.

17 Unto thee, O my strength, I will sing; for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy

PSALM LX.

O

GOD, thou hast cast us off, thou hast

scattered us, thou hast been displeased; ; O turit thyself to us again.

2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine

astonishment.
! Thou hast given a banner to them that

fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

6 God hath spoken in his holiness ; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

7 Gilead is mine, and Manassah is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

8 Muab is my wash pot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me,

9 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off ? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies ?

11 Give us help from trouble; for vain is the help of man.

12 Through God we shall do valiantly : for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

PSALM LXI.

H TEAR my cry, O God; attend unto my

prayer.
