He cast out the heathen , also be fore them;
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,
thy people !
Thou feedest them with the bread oltears;
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 ;
for thy self.
So will we not go back from thee :
PSALM LXXX. 1,3-19.
HOW aimable | are thy | tabernacles, 0 | Lord | - of | hosts! My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts
of the Lord; My heart and my flesh crieth out for the living
Yea, the sparrow hath | found a house,
lay her | young,
I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my
Than to | dwell in the tents of | wickedness.
PSALM LXXXIV. 1-5,7-12.
LORD, thou hast been favourable un | to thy | land;
us, O God of our sal | vation,
Wilt thou not re | vive us a | gain,
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him;
Truth shall spring out of the earth;
countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day And in thy righteousness / shall they be ex | alted.
PSALMS LXXXV. 1,2,4–13. LXXXIX. 14–16.
LORD thou hast | been our | dwelling place lą | all / generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever
thou hadst formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to ever | lasting, I thou art |
Thou turnest man to destruction ;
