tolia O LORD our Governour, how excellent is thy

Name in all the thy { glory -:- a | bove - the heavens !

2 Out of the mouth of very babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine --enemies : that thou mightest still the ene{my, and | the avenger.

3 For I will consider thy heavens, even the works of | thy

fingers : the moon and the stars, { which thou | hast ordained.

4 What is man, that thou art mindful of -:- him : and the son of man, { that thou | visit-:-est him ?

5 Thou madest him lower than the | an---gels : to crown him with { glo-'-ry and -- worship.

WHY standest thou so far off, 1 0 - Lord : and

hidest thy face in the needful time of trou | ble ?

2 The ungodly for his own lust doth persecute | the -poor : let them be taken in the crafty wiliness that they have --- imagined.

3 For the ungodly hath made boast of his own heart's | de---sire : and speaketh good of the covetous, whom God } ab--horreth.

4 The ungodly is so proud, that he careth not | for -- God : neither is God in all -:- his | thoughts.

5 His ways are alway | griev--ous : thy judgements are far above out of his sight, and therefore defieth he all his {en--emies.

6 For he hath said in his heart, Tush, I shall never be cast down : there shall no harm happen { un--to | me.

7 His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and --fraud : under his tongue is ungodliness and { va--nity.

8 He sitteth lurking in the thievish corners of | the streets : and privily in his lurking dens doth he murder the innocent ; his eyes are set against --

the poor.

9 For he lieth waiting secretly, even as a lion lurketh he in his den : that he may { ravish --

the poor.

10 He doth ravish | the poor : when he getteth him in to his | net.

11 He falleth down, and humbleth | him-:-self : that the congregation of the poor may fall into the hands of his captains.

12 He hath said in his heart, Tush, God hath for got-:-ten : he hideth away his face, and he will ne--ver | see it.

13 Arise, O Lord God, and lift up thine --hand : forget not -- the poor.

14 Wherefore should the wicked blaspheme God : while he doth say in his heart, Tush, thou God carest (not for it.

15 Surely thou hast | seen --- it : for thou beholdest ungodliness --- and wrong.

16 That thou mayest take the matter into thine -- hand : the poor committeth himself unto thee; for thou art the helper of the friend | less.

17 Break thou the power of the ungodly and i ma---licious : take away his ungodliness, and thou { shalt find | none.

18 The Lord is King for ever and e-'-ver : and the heathen are perished out of --- the land.

19 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the poor : thou preparest their heart, and thine ear hearkeneth there to.
