9 I will take no bullock out of thy house,

Nor he goats out of thy folds. 10 For every beast of the forest is mine,

And the cattle upon a thousand hills. 11 I know all the fowls of the mountains,

And the wild beasts of the field are 'mine. 12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee;

For the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,

Or drink the blood of goats ? 14 Offer hunto God thanksgiving,

And i pay thy vows unto the Most High,
15 And call upon me in the day of trouble:
I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

But unto the wicked God saith,
What hast thou to do to declare my statutes,

Or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing 'thou hatest instruction,

And castest my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou m consentedst

with him, And 'hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou 'givest thy mouth to evil,

And thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother, Thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; Thou o thoughtest that I was altogether such an one


as thyself; But I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine

T A Song of Degrees.

1 Out « of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD! 2 Lord, hear my voice; Let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my suppli

O LORD, who shall stand ? 4 But there is forgiveness with thee, That d thou mayest be feared.

I wait for the LORD, My soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. 6 My soul waiteth for the LORD More than they that watch for the morning; I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

TA Psalm of David.


1 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul !
2 O my God, I trust in thee;
Let me not be ashamed,
Let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed;

Let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. 4 Show me thy ways, O LORD;

Teach me thy paths. 5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me; For thou art the God of my salvation;

On thee do I wait all the day. 6 Remember, O LORD, 'thy tender mercies and thy

loving-kindnesses; For they have been ever of old. 7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my trans

gressions : According to thy mercy remember thou me For thy goodness' sake, O Lord!

Good and upright is the LORD, Therefore will he teach sinners in the way. 9 The meek will he guide in judgment,

And the meek will he teach his way. 10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth

Unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
