9 O Lord God of hosts, who is like unto thee ? thy truth, most mighty Lord, is on every side.

10 Thou rulest the raging of the sea; thou stillest the waves thereof when they arise. 11 Thou hastsubdued Egypt, and destroyed; it thou hast scattered thine enemies abroad with thy mighty arm. 12 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine; thou hast laid the foundation of the round world, and all that therein is. 13 Thou hast made the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy Name. 14 Thou hast a mighty arm; strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand. 15 Righteousness and equity are the habitation of thy seat; mercy and truth shall go before thy face. 16 Blessed is the people, O Lord, that can rejoice in thee; they shall walk in the light of thy countenance. 17 Their delight shall be daily in thy name; and in thy righteousness shall they make their boast. 18 For thou art the glory of

ing-kindness thou shalt list up our horns: 19 For the Lord is our desence; the Holy One of Israel is our King. 20 Thou spakest sometime in visions unto thy saints, and saids', I have laid help upon one that is mighty, I have exalted one chosen out of the people. 21 I have found David my servant: with my holy oil have I and inted him.

22 My hand shall hold him fast, and my arm shall strengthen him. 23 The enemy shall not be able to do him violence; the son of wickedness shall not hurt him. 24 I will smite down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 25 My truth also and my mercy shall be with him ; and in my Name shall his horn be exalted. 26 I will set his dominion also in the sea, and his right hand in the floods. 27. He shall call me, Thou art my Father, my God, and my strong salvation. 28 And I will make him my first-born, higher than the kings of the earth. 29 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. 30 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaVen. t 31 But if his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 32 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; I will visit their offences with the rod, and their sin with scourges. 33 "Nevertheless, my lowing-kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my truth to fail. 34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips : 1 o'

sworn once by my holiness, that I will not fail David. 35 His seed shall endure for ever, and his seat is like as the sun before me. 36 He shall stand fast for evermore as the moon, and as the faithful witness in heaVen. 37 But thou hast abhorred and forsaken thine Anointed, and art displeased at him. 38 Thou hast broke the covenant of thy servant, and cast his crown to the ground. 39 Thou hast overthrown all his hedges, and broken down his strong holds. 40 All they that go by spoil him, and he is become a reproach to his neighbours. 41 Thou hast set up the right hand of his enemies, and made all his adversaries to rejoice. 42 Thou hast taken away the edge of his sword, and givest him not victory in the battle. 48 Thou hast put out his glory, and cast his throne down to the ground. 44 The days of his youth hast thou shortened, and cowered him with dishonour. 45 Lord, how long wilt thou hide thyself? for ever? and shall thy wrath burn like fire : 46 () remember how short my time is ; wherefore hast thou made all men for nought? 47 What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death and shall he deliver his soul from the hand of hell ?

ORD, thou hast been our refuge, from one generation to another. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and the world were made, thou art God from everlasting, and world without end. 3 Thou turnest man to destruction ; again thou savest, Come again, ye childre... of meth. 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday, seeing that is past as a watch in the night. 5 As soon as thou scatterest them, they are even as a sleep, and fade away suddenly like the grass. 6 In the norming it is green, and groweth up ; but in the evening it is cut-down, dried "p, and withered. 7 For we consume away

Psalm xci. Qui habitat. HOSO dwelleth under the defence of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say unto the Lord, Thou art my hope and my strong hold, my God, in him will I trust. 3 For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall desend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe under his feathers; his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day. 7. A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the reward of the ungodly. 9 For thou, Lord, art my hope; thou hast set thine house of defence very high. 10 There shall no evil happen unto thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
