The Book Of Psalms (ch. 111-120)

111:1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.

111:2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

111:3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

111:4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.

111:5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.

111:6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.

111:7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.

111:8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.

111:9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.

111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

112:2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

112:3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

112:8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

113:3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.

113:4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.

113:5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,

113:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

113:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

113:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

114:1 When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;

114:2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.

114:3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.

114:4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.

114:5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?

114:6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?

114:7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

114:8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

115:1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.

115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?

115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.

115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.

115:10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.

115:11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.

115:12 The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

115:13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.

115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

115:15 Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.

115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.

115:18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

Praise the LORD.

116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.

116:2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.

116:3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

116:4 Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

116:5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.

116:7 Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.

116:8 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

116:9 I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.

116:10 I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:

116:11 I said in my haste, All men are liars.

116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?

116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.

116:14 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

116:16 O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.

116:17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.

116:18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.

116:19 In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.

117:1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

117:2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

118:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever.

118:2 Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:4 Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:5 I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.

118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

118:7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

118:9 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.

118:10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.

118:11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.

118:12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.

118:13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.

118:14 The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

118:15 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.

118:16 The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.

118:17 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.

118:18 The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.

118:19 Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:

118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.

118:21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

118:22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

118:23 This is the LORD's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

118:24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

118:27 God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

118:28 Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

118:29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

119:1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.

119:2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

119:3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.

119:4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

119:5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

119:6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

119:7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

119:8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

119:12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.

119:13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

119:14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

119:16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

119:17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.

119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

119:19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

119:20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.

119:21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.

119:23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.

119:24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.leth.

119:25 My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.

119:26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.

119:27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.

119:28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.

119:29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.

119:30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.

119:31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.

119:32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

119:33 Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

119:35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

119:36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.

119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.

119:38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.

119:39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.

119:40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

119:41 Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.

119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.

119:43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.

119:44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.

119:45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.

119:46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.

119:47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

119:48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.

119:49 Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope.

119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.

119:51 The proud have had me greatly in derision: yet have I not declined from thy law.

119:52 I remembered thy judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.

119:53 Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law.

119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

119:55 I have remembered thy name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept thy law.

119:56 This I had, because I kept thy precepts.

119:57 Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.

119:58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.

119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

119:60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

119:61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.

119:62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.

119:63 I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.

119:64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.

119:65 Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.

119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

119:67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.

119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.

119:69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.

119:70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.

119:71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

119:72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.

119:73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

119:74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.

119:75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.

119:76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.

119:77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.

119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.

119:79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.

119:80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.

119:81 My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.

119:82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?

119:83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.

119:84 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

119:85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.

119:86 All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.

119:87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.

119:88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.

119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

119:90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.

119:91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.

119:92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.

119:93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.

119:94 I am thine, save me: for I have sought thy precepts.

119:95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.

119:96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.

119:97 O how I love thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

119:98 Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.

119:100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.

119:101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word.

119:102 I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me.

119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

119:104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

119:106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

119:107 I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word.

119:108 Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.

119:109 My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.

119:110 The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.

119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

119:112 I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end.

119:113 I hate vain thoughts: but thy law do I love.

119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.

119:115 Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.

119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.

119:117 Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

119:118 Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit is falsehood.

119:119 Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth like dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.

119:120 My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.

119:121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.

119:122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.

119:123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.

119:124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

119:125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.

119:126 It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.

119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

119:128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

119:129 Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.

119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

119:131 I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

119:132 Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me, as thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.

119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

119:134 Deliver me from the oppression of man: so will I keep thy precepts.

119:135 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.

119:136 Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not thy law.

119:137 Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.

119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.

119:139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

119:140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.

119:141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.

119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

119:143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.

119:144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.

119:145 I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O LORD: I will keep thy statutes.

119:146 I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.

119:147 I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.

119:148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.

119:149 Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O LORD, quicken me according to thy judgment.

119:150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.

119:151 Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.

119:152 Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

119:153 Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law.

119:154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.

119:155 Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.

119:156 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments.

119:157 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.

119:158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.

119:159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.

119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

119:161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

119:163 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.

119:164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.

119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

119:166 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.

119:167 My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.

119:168 I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee.

119:169 Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word.

119:170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.

119:171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.

119:172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

119:173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

119:174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.

119:175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

119:176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

120:1 In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.

120:2 Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.

120:3 What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?

120:4 Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.

120:5 Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!

120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

120:7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
