7 The lot is fallen unto me in a fair ground; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
8 I will thank the LORD for giving me warning; my reins also chasten me in the night-season.
9 I have set God always before me; for he is on my right hand, therefore I shall not fall.
10 Wherefore my heart was glad, and my glory rejoiced: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
11 For why? thou shalt not leave my soul in hell; neither shalt thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption.
12 Thou shalt show me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulness of joy, and at thy right hand there is pleasure for evermore.
Psalm xvii. Exaudi, Domine.
HEAR the right, O LORD, consider my complaint, and hearken unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; and let thine eyes look upon the thing that is equal.
3 Thou hast proved and visited mine heart in the night-season; thou hast tried me, and shalt find no wickedness in me; for I am utterly purposed that my mouth shall not offend.
4 Because of men's works that are done against the words of thy lips, I have kept me from the ways of the destroyer.
5 O hold thou up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon thee, O God, for thou shalt hear me: incline thine ear to me, and hearken unto my words.
7 Show thy marvellous loving-kindness, thou that art the Saviour of them which put their trust in thee, from such as resist thy right hand.
8 Keep me as the apple of an eye; hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
9 From the ungodly, that trouble me; mine enemies compass me round about, to take away my soul.
10 They are inclosed in their own fat, and their mouth speaketh proud things.
11 They lie waiting in our way on every side, turning their eyes down to the ground;
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a lion's whelp lurking in secret places.
13 Up, LORD, disappoint him, and cast him down; deliver my soul from the ungodly, which is a sword of thine;
14 From the men of thy hand, O LORD, from the men, I say, and from the evil world; which have their portion in this life, whose bellies thou fillest with thy hid treasure.
15 They have children at their desire, and leave the rest of their substance for their babes.
16 But as for me, I will behold thy pre
sence in righteousness; and when I awakeup after thy likeness, I shall be satisfied with it.
Psalm xviii. Diligam te, Domine. I WILL love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my stony rock, and my defence, my Saviour; my God, and my might, in whom I will trust; my buckler, the horn also of my salvation, and my refuge.
2 I will call upon the LORD, which is worthy to be praised; so shall I be safe from mine enemies.
3 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the overflowings of ungodliness made me afraid.
4 The pains of hell came about me; the snares of death overtook me.
5 In my trouble I will call upon the LORD, and complain unto my God:
6 So shall he hear my voice out of his holy temple, and my complaint shall come before him; it shall enter even into his ears.
7 The earth trembled and quaked, the very foundations also of the hills shook, and were removed, because he was wroth.
8 There went a smoke out in his presence, and a consuming fire out of his mouth, so that coals were kindled at it.
9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down, and it was dark under his feet.
10 He rode upon the Cherubim, and did fly; he came flying upon the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his secret place, his pavilion round about him with dark water, and thick clouds to cover him.
12 At the brightness of his presence his clouds removed; hailstones and coals of fire.
13 The LORD also thundered out of heaven, and the Highest gave his thunder; hailstones and coals of fire.
14 He sent out his arrows, and scattered them; he cast forth lightnings, and destroyed them.
15 The springs of waters were seen, and the foundations of the round world were discovered at thy chiding, O LORD, at the blasting of the breath of thy displeasure.
16 He shall send down from on high to fetch me, and shall take me out of many
17 He shall deliver me from my strongest enemy, and from them which hate me; for they are too mighty for me.
18 They prevented me in the day of my trouble; but the LORD was my upholder.
19 He brought me forth also into a place of liberty; he brought me forth, even because he had a favour unto me.
20 The LORD shall reward me after my
righteous dealing, according to the clean ness of my hands shall he recompense me. 21 Because I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not forsaken my God, as the wicked doth.
22 For I have an eye unto all his laws, and will not cast out his commandments from me.
23 I was also uncorrupt before him, and eschewed mine own wickedness.
24 Therefore shall the LORD reward me after my righteous dealing, and according unto the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
25 With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with a perfect man thou shalt be perfect.
26 With the clean thou shalt be clean, and with the froward thou shalt learn froward
27 For thou shalt save the people that are in adversity, and shalt bring down the high looks of the proud.
28 Thou also shalt light my candle; the LORD my God shall make my darkness to be light.
29 For in thee I shall discomfit an host of men, and with the help of my God I shall leap over the wall.
30 The way of God is an undefiled way; the word of the LORD also is tried in the fire: he is the defender of all them that put their trust in him.
