101.8
PSALMS

And He is high above all the peoples.
3Let them praise Thy name as great and awful;
Holy is He.
 
4The strength also of the king who loveth justice—
Thou hast established equity,
Thou hast executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
5Exalt ye the Lord our God,
And prostrate yourselves at His footstool;
Holy is He.
 
6Moses and Aaron among His priests,
And Samuel among them that call upon His name,
Did call upon the Lord, and He answered them.
7He spoke unto them in the pillar of cloud;
They kept His testimonies, and the statute that He gave them.
8O Lord our God, Thou didst answer them;
A forgiving God wast Thou unto them,
Though Thou tookest vengeance of their misdeeds.
9Exalt ye the Lord our God,
And worship at His holy hill;
For the Lord our God is holy.


100 A Psalm of thanksgiving.


Shout unto the Lord, all the earth.
2Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
3Know ye that the Lord He is God;
It is He that hath made us, and we are His,
His people, and the flock of His pasture.
4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise;
Give thanks unto Him, and bless His name.
5For the Lord is good; His mercy endureth for ever;
And His faithfulness unto all generations.


101 A Psalm of David.


I will sing of mercy and justice;
Unto Thee, O Lord, will I sing praises.
2I will give heed unto the way of integrity;
Oh when wilt Thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.
 
3I will set no base thing before mine eyes;
I hate the doing of things crooked; it shall not cleave unto me.
4A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will know no evil thing.
 
5Whoso slandereth his neighbour in secret, him will I destroy;
Whoso is haughty of eye and proud of heart, him will I not suffer.
6Mine eyes are upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me;
He that walketh in a way of integrity, he shall minister unto me.
 
7He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house;
He that speaketh falsehood shall not be established before mine eyes.
8Morning by morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land;
To cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of the Lord.
