18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

thine altar.

5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

7 Shall they escape by iniquity ? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

8 Thou tellest my wanderings : put thou my tears into thy bottle : are they not in thy book?

9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

10 In God I will praise his word; in the Lord will I praise his word,

11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

12 Thy vows are upon me O God: I will render praises unto thee.

13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death; wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.



David prayeth for Deliverance.

Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workors of iniquity:

3 Who whet their tongue like a sword and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words;

4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them ?

6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search; both the inward thought of every one of them and the heart is deep.

7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly əhall they be wounded,

8 So they shall make their own congue to fall upon themselves : all that see them shall flee away.

9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God : for they shall wisely consider of his doing.

10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.


A Prayer for the Increase of God's Blessings.

God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us. Selah.

2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
