42 They turned back, and tempted -- God : and moved the Holy One in Is-:-ra | el.

43 They thought not of his -- hand : and of the day when he delivered them from the hand of the { en--emy;

44 How he had wrought his miracles in | E--gypt : and his wonders in the field {of -Zo | an. 45 He turned their waters in | to

blood : so that they might not drink of the

rivers. 46 He sent lice among them, and devoured | them -'- up : and frogs to de---stroy | them.

47 He gave their fruit unto the cater | pil---lar : and their labour unto the grass-'-hop | per.

48 He destroyed their vines with hail-:-stones ; and their mulberry-trees { with the frost.

49 He smote their cattle also with | hail-:-stones : and their flocks with hot { thun--der | bolts.

50 He cast upon them the furiousness of his wrath, anger, displeasure, and trou-:-ble : and sent evil angels į a--mong | them.

51 He made a way to his indignation, and spared not their soul from death : but gave their life over to the pes--ti lence ;

52 And smote all the first-born in | E--gypt : the most principal and mightiest in the dwellings --of Ham.

53 But as for his own people, he led them forth | like sheep : and carried them in the wilderness like --- a | flock.

54 He brought them out safely, that they should | not --- fear : and overwhelmed their enemies { with

the sea.

55 And brought them within the borders of his sanctu | a---ry : even to his mountain which he purchased with his

right hand. 56 He cast out the heathen also be | fore

them : caused their land to be divided among them for an heritage, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell { in their | tents.

57 So they tempted and displeased the most high --- God and kept not his testi--monies;

58 But turned their backs, and fell away like their forefa---thers : starting aside like a { bro--ken/ bow.

59 For they grieved him with their hill | al-'tars : and provoked him to displeasure with their

i-:-mages.

60 When God heard this, he was --- wroth : and took sore displeasure at Is-'-ra | el.

61 So that he forsook the tabernacle in Si-'-lo : even the tent that he had pitched {a--mong |

62 He delivered their power into captivi.-ty : and their beauty into the en{e-'-my's | hand.

63 He gave his people over also unto | the sword : and was wroth with his in{he---ri | tance.

64 The fire consumed their | young -'- men : and their maidens were not given {to -'- mar- . riage. 65 Their priests were slain with the

sword : and there were no widows to make la {men---ta-| tion.

66 So the Lord awaked as one out of sleep : and like a giant refreshed -- with | wine.

67 He smote his enemies in the hinder --- parts : and put them to a perpet-:-ual shame.

68 He refused the tabernacle of Jo---seph : and chose not the tribe of {E--phra | im ;

69 But chose the tribe of | Ju-'-dah : even the hill of Sion which {he lov | ed.

70 And there he built his temple on --- - high : and laid the foundation of it like the ground which he hath made con{ti-:-nual | ly.

71 He chose David also his ser-·-vant : and took him away from { the --- sheep | folds.

72 As he was following the ewes great with young ones he took him : that he might feed Jacob his people, and Israel his in{he-:-ri | tance.

73 So he fed them with a faithful and true -'heart : and ruled them prudently with all power.

4 O Lord God of hosts : how long wilt thou be angry with thy people -- that pray--eth ?

8 Thou hast brought a vine out of | E--gypt : thou hast cast out the heathen, ļ and planted it.
