6 I will not be afraid for ten thousands of the people : that have set themselves against me round about.

7 Up, LORD, and help me, O my God : for thou smitest all mine enemies upon the cheekbone; thou hast broken the teeth of the un. godly.

8 Salvation belongeth unto the LORD : and thy blessing is upon thy people.

EAR me when I call, O God of my rightwhen I was in trouble; have mercy upon me, and hearken unto my prayer.

2 0 ye sons of men, how long will ye blaspheme mine honour: and have such pleasure in vanity, and seek after falsehood ?

3 Know this also, that the LORD hath chosen to himself the man that is godly : when I call upon the LORD he will hear me.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not : commune with your own heart, and in your chamber, and be still.

5 Offer the sacrifice of righteousness : and put your trust in the LORD.

6 There be many that say : Who will show us any good?

7 LORD, lift thou up : the light of thy countenance upon us.

8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart : since the time that their corn and wine and oil in. creased.

9 I will lay me down in peace, and take my rést : for it is thou, LORD, only, that makest me dwell in safety.

PSALM 5. Verba mea arribus. PONDER my words, O LORD : consider my

2 O hearken thou unto the voice of my calling, my King and my God : for unto thee will I make my prayer:

3 My voice shalt thou hear betimes, O LORD: early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4 For thou art the God that hast no pleasure in wickedness ; neither shall any evil dwell with thee.

5 Such as be foolish shall not stand in thy sight : for thou hatest all them that work vanity.

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies : the LORD will abhor both the blood-thirsty and deceitful man.

7 But as for me, I will come into thine house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy : and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

8 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies : make thy way plain before my face.

9 For there is no faithfulness in his mouth : their inward parts are very wickedness.

10 Their throat is an open sepulchre : they flatter with their tongue.

11 Destroy thou them, O God; let them perish through their own imaginations : cast them out in the multitude of their ungodliness; for they have rebelled against thee.

12 And let all them that put their trust in thee rejoice : they shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them; they that love thy Name shall be joyful in thee;

13 For thou, LORD, wilt give thy blessing unto the righteous : and with thy favourable kindness wilt thou defend him as with a shield.

Evening Praper.

PSALM 6. Domine, ne in furore. O :

neither chasten me in thy displeasure. 2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am weak : 0 LORD, heal me, for my bones are vexed.

3 My soul also is sore troubled : but, LORD, how long wilt thou punish me?

4 Turn thee, O LORD, and deliver my soul: O save me, for thy mercy's sake.

5 For in death no man remembereth thee: and who will give thee thanks in the pit?

6 I am weary of my groaning, every night wash I my bed : and water my couch with my tears.

7 My beauty is gone for very trouble : and worn away because of all mine enemies.

8 Away from me, all ye that work vanity : for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping The LORD hath heard my petition : the LORD will receive my prayer.

10 All mine enemies shall be confounded, and sore vexed : they shall be turned back, and put to shame suddenly.

Psalm 7. Domine, Deus meus. 0

LORD my God, in thee have I put my

trust : save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me; .

2 Lest he devour my soul like a lion, and tear it in pieces : while there is none to help. 3 O LORD my God, if I have done


such thing: or if there be any wickedness in my hands;

4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that dealt friendly with me : yea, I have delivered him that without any cause is mine enemy:

5 Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me : yea, let him tread my life down upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.

6 Stand up, O LORD, in thy wrath, and lift up thyself, because of the indignation of mine enemies : arise up for me in the judgment that thou hast commanded.

7 And so shall the congregation of the people come about thee : for their sakes therefore lift up thyself again.

8 The LORD shall judge the people ; give sentence with me, O LORD : according to my righteousness, and according to the innocency that is in me.

9 O let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end : but guide thou the just.

10 For the righteous God : trieth. tbe very hearts and reins.

11 My help cometh of God : who preserveth them that are true of heart.

12 God is a righteous Judge, strong, and pau tient : and God is provoked every day.

13 If a man will not turn, he will whet his sword : he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.

14 He hath prepared for him the instruments of death : he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

15 Behold, he travaileth with mischief: he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth ungodliness.

16 He hath graven and digged up a pit : and is fallen himself into the destruction that he made for other.

17 For his travail shall come upon his own head : and his wickedness shall fall on his own pate,

18 I will give thanks unto the LORD, according to his righteousness : and I will praise the Name of the LORD Most High.

3 For I will consider thy heavens, even the works of thy fingers : the moon and the stars which thou hast ordained.

4. What is man, that thou art mindful of him : and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

5 Thou madest him lower than the angels : to crown him with glory and worship.

6 Thou makest him to have dominion of the works of thy hands: and thou hast put allthings in subjection under his feet :

7 All sheep and oxen : yea, and the beasts of the field;
