2 For lo thy furions foes' now * swell, And * storm outrageously,

*Jebemajus, And they that hate thee proud and fell

Exalt their heads full high. 3 Against thy People they t contrive t Jagnarimu. † Their Plots and Counsels deep,

Sodo * Them to insnare they chiefly strive,

*Jithjagnat su gnal. * Whom thou doft hide and keep. *Tsephunca. 4 Come let us cut them off, say they,

Till they no Nation be,
That Israel's name for ever may

Be loft in memory.
ş For they consult t with all their might,
And all as one in mind

f Lev jachdan, Themselves against thee they unite,

And in firm union bind.
6 The tents of Edom, and the brood

Of Scornful Ishmael,
Moab, with them of Hagar's blood,

That in the Defart dwell,
7 Gebal and Ammon there conspire,

And hateful Amalec,
The Philistims, and they of Tyre,

Wlose bounds the Sea dosh check.
8 With them great Asshur also bands

And doth confirm the knot,
All these have lent their armed hands

To aid the Sons of Lot,

. Do to them as to Midian bold,

That wasted all the coast, To Sisera, and as is told

Thou didst to Jabin's hoaft, When at the brook of Kishon old

They were repuls'd and sain,
so At Endor quite cut off, and rowl'd

As dung upon the Plain.
II As Zeb and Oreb evil sped,

So let their Princes fpeed,
As Zeba and Zalmunna bled,

So let their Princes bleed. 12 For they amidst their pride have said,

By right now shall we seize God's Houses, and will now invade

f Their fately Palaces. Neoth Elohim bears bething 13 My God, oh make them as a Wheel,

No quiet let them find,
Giddy and restless let them reel

Like stubble from the wind.
14 As when an aged wood cakes fire

Which on a sudden straies,
The greedy Flame runs higher and highes

Till all the Mountains blaze,
Is So with thy whirl-wind them pursue,

And with thy tempeft chase;
16 * And will they * yield thee honour due;
Lord fill with shame their face.

* They seek thy 17 Atham'd, and troubl’d let them be, Name, Hebe

Troubld, and ham’d for ever,

Ever confounded, and so die

With fame, and scape it never.. 18 Then fall they know that thou whose name

Jehovah is alone,
Art the most high,, and thou the same

O'er all the earth art one.

Psal. LXXXIV.

'H o w lovely are thy dwellings fair!

O Lord of Hofts, how dear The pleasant Tabernacles are !

Where thou dost dwell so near. 2 My Soul doth long and almost die

Thy Courts O Lord to see, My heart and flesh aloud do cry,

O living God, for thee.
3 There ev’n the Sparrow freed from wrong

Hath found a house of reft,
The Swallow there, to lay her young

Hath built her brooding nest,
Ev'n by thy Altars, Lord of Hofts,

They find their safe abode,
And home they fly frim round the coafts

Toward thee, my King, my God. 4 Happy, who in thy house reside,

Where thee they ever praises

s Happy, whose Arength in thec dorka bide,

And in their hearts thy ways.
6 They pass through Baca's thirstie Vale,

That dry and barpon ground,
As through a fruitful watry Dale

Where Springs and Show'rs abound. 7 They journey on from strength to strength

With joy and gladfom cheer, Till all before our God at lengtla

In Sion do appear. 8 Lord God of Hofts hear now my prayer,

o Jacob's God give ear, 9 Thou God our field look on the face

of thy anointed dear.
10 For one day in thy Courts to be

Is better, and more bleft,
Than in the joyes of Vanity,

A thousand days at beft.
I in the Temple of my God

Had rather keep a door,
Than dwell in Tents, and rich abode,

With Sin for evermore.
ir For God the Lord both Sun and Shield

Giyes grace and glory bright,
No good from them shall be with-held

Whose ways are just and right.
12 Lord God of Hoafts that raign't on high,

That man is truly blest, Who only on thee doth relie,

And in thee only reft.

PSA L. LXXXV.

T* Land to favour gracioully

Thou hast not Lord been flack, Thou hast from hard Captivity

Returned Jacob back.
2 Th' iniquity thou didft forgive

That wrought thy People woe,
And all their sin, that did thee grieve,

Haft hid where none shall knod.
3 Thine anger all thou hadît remov'd,

And calmly didi return
From thy t fierce wrath which we had prov'd,

1 Heb. The burning heat of thy wyath. Far worse than fire to burn. 4 God of our saving health and peace,

Turn us, and us reftore,
Thine indignation cause to cease

Toward us, and chide no more.
s Wilt thou be angry without end,

For ever angry thus,
Wilt thou thy frowning ire extend

From Age to Age on us ?
6 Wilt thou not #turn, and hear our voice,

And us again * revive, * Heb.turn to quicken 4). That so thy People may rejoyce

By thee preserv'd alive. 7 Cause us to see thy goodness, Lord,

To us thy mercy few,
