He will not suffer thy foot to stumble; he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy hand.


The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord shall defend thee from evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in, from this time forth, and even for evermore.


I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem. Jerusalem is builded as a city that is at unity in itself. Whither the tribes go up to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy pal


For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy


Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and ever. AMEN.


THEY that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.

As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people from henceforth even forever.

Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good, and to them that are true of heart.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

Our eyes turn to the Lord our God, until he have mercy

upon us.

Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh in vain.

Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord.

Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

If thou, Lord, shouldst mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?

But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

I trust in the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.


My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning.

Let Israel hope in the Lord for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and forever.


BEHOLD, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard that went down to the skirts of his garments;

As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

Bless ye the Lord, all ye his servants, who stand in the house of the Lord.

Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord. The Lord, that made heaven and earth, bless thee out of Zion.

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the name of Jehovah ; praise him, O ye servants of the Lord.

Ye who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

Praise the Lord; for he is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.

For I know that Jehovah is great, and that he is above all.

Whatsoever the Lord pleaseth, that he doth in heaven, and upon earth.

He causeth the vapors to ascend; he maketh the lightnings; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.

Thy name, O Lord, endureth forever; and thy memorial throughout all generations.

Bless the Lord, O house of Israel; ye that fear the Lord, bless his holy name.


I WILL praise thee with my whole heart: I will sing praise unto thee.

I will worship thee in thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth.

In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, thou didst strengthen and encourage my soul.

Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive


The Lord will perform all things for me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth forever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and AMEN.



O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.

Thou knowest my down-sitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

For, before the word is on my tongue, lo! O Lord, thou knowest it altogether.

Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine

hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I go from thy presence?

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in the grave, behold, thou art there.

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with thee.

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God,

Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever and AMEN.
