Psalm 107–150

Psalm 107

aO give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good:

For his mercy endureth for ever.

Let bthe redeemed of the Lord say so,

cWhom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

And dgathered them out of ethe lands,

From the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

They fwandered in the wilderness in ga solitary way;

They found no ggcity to dwell in.

hHungry and thirsty,

Their soul ifainted in them.

jThen they cried unto the Lord kin their trouble,

And he delivered them out of their distresses.

And he led them forth by the lright way,

That they might go to gga city of habitation.

mOh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

nFor he satisfieth the olonging soul,

And filleth the phungry soul with goodness.

10  Such as qsit in darkness and rin the shadow of death,

Being sbound in affliction and iron;

11  Because they trebelled against the words of God,

And ucontemned the wcounsel of the most High:

12  Therefore he brought down their heart with labour;

They fell down, and there was xnone to help.

13  yThen they cried unto the Lord in their trouble,

And he saved them out of their distresses.

14  zHe brought them out of adarkness and the shadow of death,

And bbrake their bands in sunder.

15  bbOh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

16  For he hath cbroken the gates of brass,

And cut the bars of iron in sunder.

17  dFools because of their transgression,

And because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

18  eTheir soul abhorreth all manner of meat;

And fthey draw near unto gthe gates of death.

19  hThen they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,

And he saveth them out of their distresses.

20  He iksent khis word, and lhealed them,

And mdelivered them from their ndestructions.

21  oOh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

22  And let them psacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving,

And qdeclare his works with rejoicing.

23  rThey that go down to the sea in ships,

That do business in sgreat waters;

24  These see the works of the Lord,

And his wonders in the deep.

25  For the commandeth, and raiseth the ustormy wind,

Which lifteth up the waves thereof.

26  They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths:

Their soul xis melted because of trouble.

27  They reel to and fro, and ystagger zlike a drunken man,

And are at their wits’ end.

28  aThen they cry unto the Lord in their trouble,

And he bringeth them out of their distresses.

29  bHe maketh the storm a ccalm,

So that the waves thereof are still.

30  Then are they glad because they dbe quiet;

So he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

31  eOh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness,

And for his wonderful works to the children of men!

32  Let them fexalt him also gin the congregation of the people,

And gpraise him in the assembly of the elders.

33  He turneth rivers into a wilderness,

And the watersprings into hdry ground;

34  iA fruitful land into barrenness,

For the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

35  kHe turneth the wilderness into kla standing water,

And mdry ground into watersprings.

36  And there he maketh the hungry to dwell,

That they may prepare na city for habitation;

37  And sow the fields, and plant vineyards,

Which may yield fruits of increase.

38  He blesseth them also, so that othey are multiplied greatly;

And suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

39  Again, they are minished and brought low

Through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

40  pHe poureth contempt upon princes,

qAnd causeth them to wander in the ||wilderness, where there is no way.

41  Yet rsetteth he the poor on high ||from affliction,

And smaketh him families like a flock.

42  tThe righteous shall see it, and rejoice:

And all uiniquity shall stop her mouth.

43  xWhoso is wise, and will observe these things,

Even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.

Psalm 108

*A Song or Psalm of David.

aO God, my heart is fixed;

I will sing and give praise,

Even with my glory.

Awake, psaltery and harp:

I myself will awake early.

I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people:

And I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

For thy mercy is great babove the heavens:

And thy truth reacheth unto the ||cclouds.

Be thou exalted, O God, babove the heavens:

And thy glory above all the earth;

dThat thy beloved may be delivered:

Save with thy right hand, and answer me.

God hath spoken in his holiness;

I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem,

And mete out the valley of Succoth.

Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;

Ephraim also is the strength of mine head;

Judah is my lawgiver;

Moab is my washpot;

Over Edom will I cast out my shoe;

Over Philistia ewill I triumph.

10  Who will bring me into efthe strong city?

Who will lead me into Edom?

11  Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off?

gAnd wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

12  Give us help from trouble:

For vain is the help of man.

13  Through God we shall do valiantly:

For he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

Psalm 109

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.

aHold not thy peace, bO God of my praise;

For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me:

They have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

They compassed me about also with words of hatred;

And fought against me cwithout a cause.

For my love they dare my adversaries:

But eI give myself unto fprayer.

And gthey have rewarded me evil for good,

And hatred for my love.

hSet thou a wicked man over ihim:

And klet ||Satan stand klat his right hand.

mWhen he shall be judged, let him be condemned:

And let nhis prayer become sin.

Let his days be few;

And olet another take his ||office.

Let phis children be fatherless,

And his wife a widow.

10  Let his children qbe continually vagabonds, and rbeg:

Let them seek stheir bread also out of their desolate places.

11  Let the extortioner tcatch all that he hath;

And ulet the strangers spoil his labour.

12  Let there be none to wextend mercy unto him:

Neither let there be xany to favour his fatherless children.

13  Let yhis posterity be cut off;

And in the generation following let ztheir name be blotted out.

14  Let athe iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord;

And let not the sin of his mother bbe blotted out.

15  Let them be before the Lord continually,

cThat he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

16  Because that he remembered not to shew mercy,

But persecuted dthe poor and needy man,

That he might even slay the ebroken in heart.

17  fAs he loved cursing, so let it come unto him:

As he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

18  As ghe clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment,

So let it hcome into his bowels like water,

And like oil into his bones.

19  Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him,

And for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

20  Let this be the reward of imine adversaries from the Lord,

And of them that speak evil against my soul.

21  But do thou for me, O God the Lord, jfor thy name’s sake:

kBecause thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.

22  For I am dpoor and needy,

And my heart is wounded within me.

23  I am gone llike the shadow when it declineth:

I am mtossed up and down nas the locust.

24  oMy knees are weak through fasting;

And my flesh pfaileth of fatness.

25  I became also qa reproach unto them:

When they looked upon me rthey shaked their heads.

26  sHelp me, O Lord my God:

O save me according to thy mercy:

27  That they may know that this is thy hand;

That thou, Lord, hast done it.

28  tLet them curse, but bless thou:

When they arise, let them be ashamed; but let uthy servant rejoice.

29  Let vmine xadversaries wbe clothed with shame,

And let them xcover themselves with their own wconfusion, as with a mantle.

30  I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth;

Yea, yI will praise him among the multitude.

31  For he shall stand zat the right hand of the poor,

To save him from those that condemn his soul.

Psalm 110

A Psalm of *David.

aThe Lord said unto my Lord,

bSit thou cat my right hand,

dUntil I make thine enemies thy efootstool.

The Lord shall send the frod of thy strength gout of Zion:

hRule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

iThy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, kin the beauties of holiness

||From the womb of the morning: thou hast lthe dew of thy youth.

mThe Lord nhath sworn, and owill not repent,

mpThou art a qpriest rfor ever

After the order of sMelchizedek.

The Lord tat thy right hand

yShall strike through ukings in wthe day of xhis wrath.

He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies;

He yshall wound the heads over ||many countries.

He zshall drink of the brook in the way:

Therefore shall he lift up the head.

Psalm 111

Praise ye the Lord.

aI will praise the Lord with my whole heart,

bIn the assembly of the upright, and ain the congregation.

cThe works of the Lord are great,

Sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

dHis work is ehonourable and glorious:

And fhis righteousness endureth for ever.

He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered:

The Lord is ggracious and full of compassion.

He hath given hmeat unto them that fear him:

He will ever be mindful of his covenant.

He hath shewed his people the power of his works,

That he may give them the heritage of the heathen.

The works of his hands are iverity and judgment;

All his commandments are ksure.

lThey stand fast for ever and ever,

And are done in illtruth and uprightness.

mHe sent nredemption unto his people:

He hath commanded his covenant for ever:

oHoly and opreverend is his name.

10  The fear of the Lord is the beginning of qwisdom:

||A good understanding have all they that do rhis commandments:

His praise fendureth for ever.

Psalm 112

Praise ye the Lord.

aBlessed is the man that feareth the Lord,

That bdelighteth greatly in his commandments.

cHis seed shall be mighty upon earth:

The generation of the upright shall be blessed.

dWealth and driches shall be in his house:

And ehis righteousness endureth for ever.

fUnto the upright there ariseth light
