David complaineth PSALM L W. David in his prayer complaineth of is fearful case. To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil. Psalm of David. IVE ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my Supplication. 2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise; 3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked : for a they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they nate me. 4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors b of death are fallen upon me. 5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath 1 overwhelmed me. 6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove' for then would I ñy away, and be at rest. 7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. elah. 8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest. 9 Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues: for I have seen c violence and strife in the city. 10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorroware in the midst of it. 11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets. 12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me ; then I could have borne it : neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me ; then I would have hid myself from him. 13 But it was thou, d a man 2 mine equal, my guide, e and mine acquaintance, 14 3We took sweet counsel together,and walked funto the house of God in company. 15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quickg into 4 hell. for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. 1 h for me, I will call upon God; and the LÖRD shall save me. 17 Evening t and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. 18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was

against me: for there were many kit

with me. 19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. * Because they have no changes, l therefore they fear not God. 20 He hath put forth his hands

1 David reproveth wicked judges, 3 describeth the wicked. To the chief Musician, 1 Al-taschith, Michtam of David. O ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye jo. uprightly, Ö ye sons of men ; 2 Yea, in heart a ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth. 3 The wicked are estranged from the womb : they go astray 2 as soon as they be born, speaking lies. . 4 Their b poison is 3 like the poison of a serpent : they are like the deaf 4 adder that stoppeth her ear; 5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, 5 charming never so wisely. 6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth : break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. 7. Let them melt c away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces. 8 As a smail which melteth, let every

ELIVER c me from mine enemies, O my God: 1 defend me from them that rise up against me. 2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody d IIlêIl. 3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my Soul: the mighty are gathered against me; mote for §. transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD. 4. They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to 2 help me, and behold. 5 Thou therefore, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen : be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah. 6 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. 7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth : swords f are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear? 8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laughg at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision. 9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my 3 defence. 10 The God of my mercy shall preventh me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine 4 enemies, 11 Slay i them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O LORD our shield. 12 Fork the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride : and for cursing and lying which they speak. 13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and l let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth.

To the chief Musician upon a Shushaneduth, 1 Michtam of David, to teach; when b he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aram-zobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand. O GOD, thou c hast cast us off, thou hast 2 scattered us, thou hast been displeased ; O turn d thyself to us again. Thou hast made the earth to tremble ; thou hast broken it: heale the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. 3 Thou hast showed thy people f hard things: thou hast made us to g drink the wine of astonishment. 4 Thou hast given a banner h to them that feared thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Noë It lil. 5 That i thy beloved may be delivered ; save with thy right hand, and hear me. 6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. 7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine ; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; 8 Moab is my wash-pot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe : Philistia,triumph thou 3 because of me. Who will bring me into the 4 strong city ? who will lead me into Edom 10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies 7 11 Give us help from trouble : for vain is the 5 help of man. 12 Through God we shall do valiantly : for he it is that shall tread k dog our enemies.
