Turn away mine eyes from be holding | vanity;
And quicken thou me in thy | way.
Establish thy word un | to thy servant,
Who is devoted to thy | fear.
Let thy mercies come also unto me, O Lord,
Even thy salvation, according to thy | word.
And take not the word of truth utterly | out of my i

mouth,
For I have hoped in thy I judgments.
So shall I keep thy law continually,
For | ev | er and sever.
And I will walk at liberty
For I | seek' | thy. I precepts.
Thy statutes have been my | songs
In the house of my pilgrimage.
I made haste, and de| layed | not
To keep | thy commandments.

I am a companion of all them that fearthce,
And of them that 1 keep thy | precepts.
The earth, O Lord, is full of thy | mercy :
Teach | • • | me thy ) 'statutes.

PART 3, Thou hast dealt well with thy | servant, O Lord, According to thy word. Before I was afflicted, I | went a stray; But now have I kept thy word.

Thou art good, and doest good :
Teach -- | me thiy | statutes.
It is good for me that I have been af | flicted,
That I might | learn thy | statutes.

I know, O Lord, that thy ! judgments are right And that thou in | faithfulness | hast af | flicted me: Let I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my |

comfort,
According to thy | word un | to thy | servant. T
Unless thy law had been my | chief de | light,
I should long ago have | perished in | my af ; fiction.
I have seeri an end of all per | fection :
But thy commandment is exceeding broad.
Oh, how I love thy | law !
It is my medi | tation | all the day.
I understand | more than the ancients,
Because I keep thy | précepts.
i have refrained my feet from every | evil I way
That I might keep thy word.
I have not departed from thy | judgments :
For thou hast | taught me.
Thy word is a lamp un | to my | feet,
And a | light un I to my l path.
The free-will offerings of my mouth ac | cept, 0]

Lord,
And | teach | me thy I judgments.
I hate vain | thoughts ;
But thy law do I love.
Thou art my hiding place and my shield:
I hope / in thy i word.

PART 4.
Righteous art thou, O Lord,
And | upright | are thy I judgments.
Thou hast commanded righteousness in thy | testi:

monies, And the most | perfect I truth.

[ocr errors]

Thy word is very pure;
There | fore thy servant | loveth it,
Mean am I, I and des 1 pised ;
Yet do I noi for get thy precepts.

Thy righteousness is an ever | lasting | righteousness,
And thy , law | is the truth.
Trouble and anguish have over | taken me:
Yet thy commandments are any i great de | light.

Order my steps in thy | word:
And let not any iniquity I have do | minion over me.
I hate and ab | hor | lying ;
But thy law do I love.

Great peace have they which I love thy | law:
And nothing ! causesh them to stumble.
My soul hath | kept thy i t'estimonies,
And I love them exceedingly.

Let my cry come near before I thee, O Lord:
Give me understanding, , and I shall live.
Let my supplication I come be i fore thee:
According to thy promise de I liver me.

My lips shall utter praise,
When thou hast | taught me ihy / stautes.
Let | thine hand help me;
For thy | precepts I have chosen.

Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee;
And let thy I judgments help me.
I have g:ne astray as a lost sheep; | seek thy / ervanti
Fur I do not for i get thy commandments.

SELECTED FROM Psal1-C'XIX.

39.

I WILL lift up mine eyes un | to the hills,
From whence cometh my help.
My help cometh | from the Lord,
Which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy | foot to be moved :
He that I keepeth thee | will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeih | Israel
Shall neither / slum ber nor | sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper:
The Lord is thy shade up in thy right | hand,
The sun shall not smite mee by day,
Nor the moon - by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all | evil;
He I shall pre | serve thy soul.
The Lord shạil preserve thy going out and thy /

cjming 1 in,
From this time forth, and even for | ever | more.

PSALM CXXI.

40.

EXCEPT the Lord i build the house,
they l labour in 1 vain that i build it,
Ixcept the Lord keep the ciły,
The watchman walketh but in vain.

It is vain for you to / rise up I early,
To! guilare to | rest,
Tu fai the bread of sorrows :
'Truly lie givetha to his beloved sleep.

Blessed is every one that I feareth the | Lord;
That | walketh | in his | ways.
The labour of thine hands, thou shalt | surely | eat ;
Happy shalt thou be, and it shall be / weil with

thee.

Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine, by the sides of

thy house ; Thy children like olive plants / rcund a | bout il y !

table. Behold thus shall the man be blessed That | fear | eth the Lord.

Psalms CXXVII. 1,2. CXXVIII. 1-4.

41.

LORD, my heart is not haughty,
Nor | are mine / eyes | lofty :
Neither do I exercise myself | in great | matters,
Or in things too high for me.

Truly I have com ! posed
And quiet | ed my spirit,
As a weaned child | towards its | mother :
My soul is even | as a / weaned | child.
If thou, Lord, shouldest | mark in liquities,
O Lord, who shall stand!
But with thee | is for 1 giveness,
That thou mayest be feared.

For with the Lord | there is | mercy;
And with him is plente | ous re | demption,
They that ! sow in tears
Shall reap 1: in joy.
