From this time forth and for evermore.
Praise the Lord.

CXVI

I Love the Lord, because he hath heard
My voice and my supplications.
Because he hath inclined his ear unto me,
Therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
The sorrows of death com passed me,
And the pains of hell gat hold upon me:
I found trouble and sorrow.
Then called I upon the name of the Lord;
0 Lord, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
Yea, our God is merciful.
The Lord preserveth the simple:
I was brought low, and he helped me.
Return unto thy rest, O my soul;
For the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.
For thou hast delivered my soul from death,
Mine
eyes

from tears,
And
my

feet from falling
I will walk before the Lord
In the land of the living.
I believed, therefore have I spoken:
I was greatly afflicted:
I said in my haste,

All men are liars.
What shall I render unto the Lord
For all his benefits toward me?
I will take the cup of salvation,
And call upon the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows unto the Lord
Now in the presence of all his people.
Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of his saints.
O Lord, truly I am thy servant;
I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid:
Thou hast loosed my bonds.
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving,
And will call upon the name of the Lord.
I will pay my vows unto the Lord
Now in the presence of all his people,
In the courts of the Lord's house,
In the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
Praise ye the Lord.

CXVII

O Praise the Lord, all ye nations:
Praise him, all ye people.
For his merciful kindness is great toward us:
And the truth of the Lord endureth for ever.
Praise ye the Lord.

CXVIII

O Give thanks unto the Lord: for he is good:
Because his

mercy

endureth for ever. Let Israel now say, That his mercy endureth for ever. Let the house of Aaron now say, That his mercy endureth for ever. Let them now that fear the Lord say, That his mercy endureth for ever. I called upon the Lord in distress: The Lord answered me, and set me in a large place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: Therefore shall I see my desire

upon

them that

hate me.

It is better to trust in the Lord

Than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the Lord
Than to put confidence in princes.
All nations com passed me about:
But in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.
They com passed me about; yea, they com passed

me about:
But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
They com passed me about like bees;
They are quenched as the fire of thorns:

For in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.
Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall:
But the Lord helped me.
The Lord is my strength and song,
And is become my salvation.
The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the taber-

nacles of the righteous:
The right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.
The right hand of the Lord is exalted :
The right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly.
I shall not die, but live,
And declare the works of the Lord.
The Lord hath chastened me sore:
But he hath not given me over unto death.
Open to me the gates of righteousness:
I will go into them, and I will praise the Lord:
This gate of the Lord,
Into which the righteous shall enter.
I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me,
And art become

my

salvation.
The stone which the builders refused
Is become the head stone of the corner.
This is the Lord's doing;
It is marvellous in our eyes.
This is the day which the Lord hath made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord:

O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
We have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.
God is the Lord, which hath shewed us light:
Bind the sacrifice with cords,
Even unto the horns of the altar.
Thou art my God, and I will praise thee:
Thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good:
For his mercy endureth for ever.

CXIX

ALEPH

Blessed are the undefiled in the

way,
Who walk in the law of the Lord.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,
And that seek him with the whole heart.
They also do no iniquity:
They walk in his

ways.
Thou hast commanded us
To keep thy precepts diligently.
O that my ways were directed
To keep thy statutes!
Then shall I not be ashamed,
When I have respect unto all thy commandments.
I will praise thee with uprightness of heart,
