8 Let all the earth fear the -'- Lord : stand in awe of him, all ye that dwell į in the world.

9 For he spake, and it was --- done : he commanded, and } it - stood fast.

11 The counsel of the Lord shall endure for | e-'-ver : and the thoughts of his heart from generation to {ge-'-ne ration.

12 Blessed are the people whose God is the Lord Je lho-'-vah : and blessed are the folk, that he hath chosen to him to be his in{he---ri | tance.

13 The Lord looked down from heaven, and beheld all the children of -- men : from the habitation of his dwelling he considereth all them that dwell {

the earth. 14 He fashioneth all the hearts of -- them : and understandeth all their works.

15 There is no king that can be saved by the multitude of | an --- host : neither is any mighty man delivered by --- much strength.

16 A horse is counted' but a vain thing to save a --- man : neither shall he deliver any man by his -- great strength. 17 Behold, the eye of the Lord is

upon

them that fear --- him ; and upon them that put their trust in his --- mer | cy;

18 To deliver their soul | from death : and to feed them in the time of dearth.

19 Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord : for he is our help į and -- our | shield.

20 For our heart shall rejoice in him : because we have hoped in his { ho--ly | Name.
