PSALMS

With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
9Myrrh, and aloes, and cassia are all thy garments;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made thee glad.
10Kings' daughters are among thy favourites;
At thy right hand doth stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
11'Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear;
Forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
12So shall the king desire thy beauty;
For he is thy lord; and do homage unto him.
13And, O daughter of Tyre, the richest of the people
Shall entreat thy favour with a gift.'
14All glorious is the king's daughter within the palace;
Her raiment is of chequer work inwrought with gold.
15She shall be led unto the king on richly woven stuff;
The virgins her companions in her train being brought unto thee.
16They shall be led with gladness and rejoicing;
They shall enter into the king's palace.
17Instead of thy fathers shall be thy sons,
Whom thou shalt make princes in all the land.
18I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore shall the peoples praise thee for ever and ever.


46 For the Leader; [a Psalm] of the sons of Korah; upon Alamoth. A Song.


2God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
3Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change,
And though the mountains be moved into the heart of the seas;
4Though the waters thereof roar and foam,
Though the mountains shake at the swelling thereof. Selah
 
5There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God,
The holiest dwelling-place of the Most High.
6God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, at the approach of morning.
7Nations were in tumult, kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
8The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah
 
9Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who hath made desolations in the earth.
10He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth;
He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder;
He burneth the chariots in the fire.
11'Let be, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.'
12The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our high tower. Selah


47 For the Leader; a Psalm of the sons of Korah.


2O clap your hands, all ye peoples;
Shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
