67 He smote his enemies in
the hunder parts, and put them
to a perpetual shame.
68 He refused the taberna-
cle of Joseph, and chose not
the tribe of Ephraim;
69 But chose the tribe of
Judah, even the hill of Sion,
which he loved.
70 And there he built his
templot on high, and laid the
foundation of it like the ground
which he hath made contin-
71 He chose David also his
servant, and took him away
from the sheep-solds:
72 As he was following the
ewes great with young ones.
he took him, that he might
feed Jacob his people, and Is-
rael his inheritance.
73 So he fed them with a
faithful and true heart, and
ruled them prudently with all
his power.

shall give thee thanks for ever, and will alway be showing forth thy praise from gencra

Psalm lzxx. Qui regis Israel.

EAR, O thou shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep ; show thyself also, thou that sittest upon the cherubim : 2 Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasses, stir up thy strength, and come and help us. 3 Turn us again, O God; show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole. 4 O Lord God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry with thy people that prayeth : 5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, and givest them plentedusness of tears to drink. 6 Thou hast made us a very strife unto our neighbours, and our enemies laugh us to scorn. 7 Turn us again, thou God of hosts; show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole. 8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. 9 Thou madest room for it; and when it had taken root, it filled the land. 10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedar trees. ll She stretched out her branches unto the sea, and her


12 Why hast thou then broken down her hedge, that all they that go by pluck off her grapes : 13 The wild boar out of the wood doth root it up, and the wild beasts of the field devour it. 14 Turn thee again, thou God of hosts, look down from heaven; behold and visit this vine. 15 And the place of the vine-yard that thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest so strong for thyself. 16 It is burnt with fire, and cut down ; and they shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 17 Let thy hand be upont the man of thy right hand and upon the son of man, whom thou madest so strong for thine own self; 18 And so will not we ger back from thee: O let us live, and we shall call upon thy Name. 19 Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts; show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole. Psalm lxxxi. Exaltate Deo.

3 They have imagined craf. tily against thy people, and taken counsel against thy secret ones. 4 They have said, Come, and let us root them out, that they be no more a people, and that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5. For they have cast their heads together with one consent, and are confederate against thee; 6 The tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ishmaelites; the Moabites, and Hagarenes; 7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines, with them that dwell at Tyre. 8 Assur also is joined with them, and have holpen the children of Lot. 9 But do thou to them as unto the Midianites; unto Sisera, and unto Jabin at the brook of Kison ; 10 Who perished at Endor, and becomie as the dung of the earth. 11 Make them and their princes like Oreb and Zeb ; yea, make all their princes like as Zeba and Salmana; 12 Who say, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. 13 O my God, make them like unto a wheel, and as the

Psalm lxxxiv. Quam Dilecta! O HOW amiable are thy dwellings, thou Lord of Hosts | 2 My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord ; my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God. 3 Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest, where she may lay her young; even thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God. 4 Blessed are they that dwell in thy house ; they will be alway praising thee. 5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are thy ways. 6 Who, going through the vale of misery, use it for a well; and the pools are filled with water. 7 They will go from strength to strength, and unto the God

Psalm lxxxv. Benedi-risti, Domine. ORD, thou art become gracious unto thy land ; thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. 2 Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people, and covered all their sins. 3 Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure, and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation. 4 Turn us then, O God our Saviour, and let thine anger cease from us, 5 Wilt thou be displeased at us forever ? and wilt thout stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another? 6 Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us, that thy people may rejoice in thee : 7 Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. 8 I will hearken what the Lord God will say concerning me; for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his

OW down thine ear, O. Lord, and hear me; for I am poor, and in misery. 2 Preserve thou my soul; for I am holy : my God, save thy servant that putteth his trust in thee. 3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord ; for I will call daily upon thee. 4 Comfort the soul of thy servant ; for unto thee, O Lord, do I list up my soul. 5 For thou, Lord, art good and gracious, and of great mercy unto all them that call upon thee. 6 Give ear, Lord, unto my prayer, and ponder the voice of my humble desires. 7 In the time of my trouble I will call upon thee ; for thou
