PSALMS

2Keep my soul, for I am godly;
O Thou my God, save Thy servant that trusteth in Thee.
3Be gracious unto me, O Lord;
For unto Thee do I cry all the day.
4Rejoice the soul of Thy servant;
For unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
5For Thou, Lord, art good, and ready to pardon,
And plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee.
 
6Give ear, O Lord, unto my prayer;
And attend unto the voice of my supplications.
7In the day of my trouble I call upon Thee;
For Thou wilt answer me.
8There is none like unto Thee among the gods, O Lord,
And there are no works like Thine.
9All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and prostrate themselves before Thee, O Lord;
And they shall glorify Thy name.
10For Thou art great, and doest wondrous things;
Thou art God alone.
 
11Teach me, O Lord, Thy way, that I may walk in Thy truth;
Make one my heart to fear Thy name.
12I will thank Thee, O Lord my God, with my whole heart;
And I will glorify Thy name for evermore.
13For great is Thy mercy toward me;
And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest nether-world.
 
14O God, the proud are risen up against me,
And the company of violent men have sought after my soul,
And have not set Thee before them.
15But Thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion and gracious,
Slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
16O turn unto me, and be gracious unto me;
Give Thy strength unto Thy servant,
And save the son of Thy handmaid.
17Work in my behalf a sign for good;
That they that hate me may see it, and be put to shame,
Because Thou, Lord, hast helped me, and comforted me.


87 A Psalm of the sons of Korah; a Song.


His foundation is in the holy mountains.
2The Lord loveth the gates of Zion
More than all the dwellings of Jacob.
3Glorious things are spoken of Thee,
O city of God. Selah
4'I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon as among them that know Me;
Behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia;
This one was born there.'
5But of Zion it shall be said: 'This man and that was born in her;
And the Most High Himself doth establish her.'
6The Lord shall count in the register of the peoples:
'This one was born there.' Selah
7And whether they sing or dance,
All my thoughts are in Thee.


88 A Song, a Psalm of the sons of Korah; for the Leader; upon Mahalath Leannoth. Maschil of Heman the Ezrahite.


2O Lord, God of my salvation,
What time I cry in the night before Thee,
