PSALMS

That Thou, Lord, hast done it.
28Let them curse, but bless Thou;
When they arise, they shall be put to shame, but Thy servant shall rejoice.
29Mine adversaries shall be clothed with confusion,
And shall put on their own shame as a robe.
30I will give great thanks unto the Lord with my mouth;
Yea, I will praise Him among the multitude;
31Because He standeth at the right hand of the needy,
To save him from them that judge his soul.


110 A Psalm of David.


The Lord saith unto my lord: 'Sit thou at My right hand,
Until I make thine enemies thy footstool.'
2The rod of Thy strength the Lord will send out of Zion:
'Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.'
3Thy people offer themselves willingly in the day of thy warfare;
In adornments of holiness, from the womb of the dawn,
Thine is the dew of thy youth.
 
4The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent:
'Thou art a priest for ever
After the manner of Melchizedek.'
5The Lord at thy right hand
Doth crush kings in the day of His wrath.
6He will judge among the nations;
He filleth it with the dead bodies,
He crusheth the head over a wide land.
7He will drink of the brook in the way;
Therefore will he lift up the head.


111 Hallelujah.


אI will give thanks unto the Lord with my whole heart,
בIn the council of the upright, and in the congregation.
ג2The works of the Lord are great,
דSought out of all them that have delight therein.
ה3His work is glory and majesty;
וAnd His righteousness endureth for ever.
ז4He hath made a memorial for His wonderful works;
חThe Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
ט5He hath given food unto them that fear Him;
יHe will ever be mindful of His covenant.
כ6He hath declared to His people the power of His works,
לIn giving them the heritage of the nations.
מ7The works of His hands are truth and justice;
נAll His precepts are sure.
ס8They are established for ever and ever,
עThey are done in truth and uprightness.
פ9He hath sent redemption unto His people;
צHe hath commanded His covenant for ever;
קHoly and awful is His name.
ר10The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
שA good understanding have all they that do thereafter;
תHis praise endureth for ever.


112 Hallelujah.


אHappy is the man that feareth the Lord,
