[Ps. xvii.]

1. Hear the right, O JEHOVAH! attend to my cry,

Give ear unto my prayer, not out of feigned lips. 2. Let my sentence come i forth from thy presence;

Let thine eyes belhold the things that are equal. 3. Thou hast proved mine heart;

Thou hast | visited me in the night; 4. Thou hast tried me, and I shalt find nothing;

am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. 5. As to the works of men, by the word of thy lips

I have kept from the paths of the Destroyer. 6. Hold up my goings in thy paths,

That my | footsteps do not slip.


[Ps. lx.]

1. O God! thou hast cast us off, | thou hast broken us,

Thou hast been angry; 0 | turn to us again! [ken it: 2. Thou hast made the earth to tremble; I thou hast bro

Heal its | breaches; for it shaketh. 3. Thou hast showed thy | people hard things :

Thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. 4. Thou hast given a banner to them that feared thee,

That it may be displayed because of the truth. 5. That thy beloved may be delivered ;

Save with | thy right hand, and hear me. 6. Through GOD we shall do valiantly: For he shall tread down our enemies.
