35.26
PSALMS

Let them be clothed with shame and confusion that magnify themselves against me.
27Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that delight in my righteousness;
Yea, let them say continually: 'Magnified be the Lord,
Who delighteth in the peace of His servant.'
28And my tongue shall speak of Thy righteousness,
And of Thy praise all the day.


36 For the Leader. [A Psalm] of David the servant of the Lord


2Transgression speaketh to the wicked, methinks—
There is no fear of God before his eyes.
3For it flattereth him in his eyes,
Until his iniquity be found, and he be hated.
4The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit;
He hath left off to be wise, to do good.
5He deviseth iniquity upon his bed;
He setteth himself in a way that is not good;
He abhorreth not evil.
 
6Thy lovingkindness, O Lord, is in the heavens;
Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the skies.
7Thy righteousness is like the mighty mountains;
Thy judgments are like the great deep;
Man and beast Thou preservest, O Lord.
8How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God!
And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings.
9They are abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house;
And Thou makest them drink of the river of Thy pleasures.
10For with Thee is the fountain of life;
In Thy light do we see light.
 
11O continue Thy lovingkindness unto them that know Thee;
And Thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
12Let not the foot of pride overtake me,
And let not the hand of the wicked drive me away.
13There are the workers of iniquity fallen;
They are thrust down, and are not able to rise.


37 [A Psalm] of David.


אFret not thyself because of evil-doers,
Neither be thou envious against them that work unrighteousness.
2For they shall soon wither like the grass,
And fade as the green herb.
 
ב3Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and cherish faithfulness.
4So shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord;
And He shall give thee the petitions of thy heart.
 
ג5Commit thy way unto the Lord;
Trust also in Him, and He will bring it to pass.
6And He will make thy righteousness to go forth as the light,
And thy right as the noonday.
