He cast out the heathen , also be fore them;
And made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their

tents. Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, And kept | not his testimonies.

They turned back, and dealt unfaithfully I like their

fathers ; They were turned aside, like a deceitful bow. They mingled among the heathen, and learned

their works, And they served | . their | idols. Then he gave them into the hand of their l enemies, And they that hated them ruled over them. Nevertheless he regarded their af fiction, When he heard their | cry. Save us, O Lord our God, And gather us | from a | mong the heathen, To give thanks unto thy | holy | name, And to triumph | in thy I praise. SELECTED FROM PSALMS LXXVIII, CV, CVI.


GIVE ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest

Joseph 1 like a flock; Thou that dwellest between the cherub l im, shinë |

forth. Turn us again, O God of hosts, And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.

O Lord God of hosts,
How long wilt thou be angry at the I prayer of

thy people !

Thou feedest them with the bread oltears;
And givest them tears to drink | in great measure:
Thou makest us á strife un to our neighbours :
And our enemies | laugh a | mong them | selves.
Turn us again, O God of hosts,
And cause thy face to shine, I and we shall be saved:
Thou hast brought a | vine out of Egypt ;
Thou hast cast | out the heathen and planted it.
Thou preparedst room before it,
And didst cause it to take deep root, / and it | filled

the land.

The hills were covered with the shadow | of it, And the boughs thereof were | like the goodly

cedars; She sent out her boughs un | to the sea, And her | branches un | to the river. Why hast thou broken down her hedges, So that all they that I pass by the way do 1 pluck

her ! The boar out of the wood doth | waste it, And the wild | beast of the field doth de , vour its Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts ; Look down from heaven, and be | hold, and / visit

this vine; And vineyard which thy right | hand hath | planted, And the branch thou madest strong for thy self.

It is burned with fire, it is cut | down ;
They perish at the re | buke of thy | countenance,
Let thy hand be upon the man of thy | right hand,
Upon the son of man whom thou | madest | strong

for thy self.

So will we not go back from thee :
Quicken us, and we will call up on thy | nänie.
Turn us again, O Lord God of Hosts;
Cause thy face to shine, / and we shall be saved.
