Come, ye children, hearken / unto ! me;
I will teach you the I fear of the Lord.
What man is he that desireth life, and loveth /

many ! days,
That he may see good!
Keep thy tongue from evil,
And thv | lips from I speaking | guile.
Depart from evil, ani do good;
Seek | peace and pursue it.

The eves of the Lord are up on the righteous,
And his ears are / open un | to their | cry.
The face of the Lord is against I them that do I evil,
To cut off the remembrance of them from the


The righteous cry, and the Lord' | heareth,
And delivereth them | out of all their.) troubles.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken

And saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Many are the afflictions I of the righteous ;
But ihe Lord de | livereth him | out of them | all."
He keepeth 'all his ' bones,
Not one of them is broken.

Evil shall slay the wicked,
And they that hate the righteous | shall be | deso-

late. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants, And none of them that trust in him | shall be




PRET not thyself becatise of evil | doers,
Neither be thou envious against the workers of

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green | herb.
Trust in the Lord, and do i good:
Su shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily I thou |

shalt be | feil. Delight thyself also in the Lord ; And he shall give thee the desires of shine heart.

Commit thy way un | tnthe | Lord ;
Trust also in bim; and he shall I bring it to / pays.
And he shall bring forth thy righteousness | as the

And wait patiently for him ;
Fret not thyself because of him who prospereth 1 in

his way. Because of him who bringeth | wicked devices to


Cease from anger, and for | sake | wrath :
Fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
For evil doers shall be cut off ;
But those that wait upon the Lord, they shall in

herit the earth.

For yet a little while, and the wicked / shall not l be: Yca, thou shalt diligently consider-- his place, / and

it shall not be.

But the meek shall in ! berit ile | larth,
And shall delight themselves an inebun | dance

Mark the perfect man, and be hold the upright; For the end of that man is peace.

PSALM XXXVII. l-11,18,19,23-25,35-37,38.

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

LORD make me to know mine end, and the measure

of my days, what it | 15 ; That I may | know how | frail I I am.

Behold thou hast made my days as a handbreadth ;

and mine age is as nothing be | fure thee : Verily every man at his best state is | alto | gether


Surely every man walketh in a | vain / show:
Surely they are dis ' quiet | ed in / vain.
He | heapeth up / riches,
And knuweth | not, who shall I gather them.

And now, Lord, what I wait I | för ?
My hope is in thee.
Deliver me from all my trans | gressions :
Make me not the re i proach of the | foolish.

I was dumb, I opened | not my mouth;
Because thou | didst it.
Remove thy | stroke away from me;
I am consumed by the | blow | of thine | hand.

When thou with rebukes dost correct man för iniquity,

ihou makest his beauty to consume away I like

a | moth;
Surely, every man is vanity.
Hear, my prayer, O Lord,
And give ear un to my cry.

Hold not thy | peace at my | tears : "For I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as

ail my | fathers were. Oh spare me that I may re | cover / strength, efure 1

go hence, and I be no | more.



As the hart panteth after | streams of water,
So panteth my soul after thee, O God.
My soul thirsieth for God, for the I living | God:
When shall I come and ap | pear be | fore God.
My tears have been my meat, day and night,
While they continually say unto me, Where is

thy God!
When I remember these things
I pour | out my | soul | in me:

For I had gone with the multitude,
I went with them to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and praise,
With a multitude that kept holiday.

Why art thou cast down, / O my soul?
And why art | thou dis quieted | in me?
Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise him
Who is the strength of my | countenance, | and

my God.

Deep calleth unto deep at' the noise of thy | water

spouts : All thy waves and thy | billows / are gone | over me. Yet the Lord will command his loving kindness in

the day time; And in the night his song shall be with me, and my

prayer unto the God of my | life. I will say unto God, my rock, Why hast | thou for |

gotten me! Why go I mourning because of the op | pression |

of the enemy!
