26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed.

27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

28 The children of thy servants shall contibue, and their seed shall be established before thee.


An Exhortation to bless God for his Mercy.


Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within bless his holy name.

9 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget Rot all his benefits.

3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction ; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies ;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's,

6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

9 He will not alway chide; neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth then that fear him.

14 For he knoweth our frame; he remenibereth that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are as grass ; as a Power of the field, so he flourisheth:

16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

18 To such as keep his covenant and, to those that remember his commandments to do them.

19 The Lord hath prepared bis throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

21 Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his that do his pleasure.

22 Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion : bless the LORD, O my soul,


A Meditation upon God's Power, &c.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain;

3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters'; whọ maketh the clouds bis chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind;

4 Who maketh his angels spirits'; his ministers a flaming fire;

5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should no: be removed for ever.

6 Thou coveredst it with the deep, as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over, that they turn not again to cover the earth.

10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

11 They give drink to every beast of the field; the wild asses quench their thirst.

12 By thein shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

15 And the wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart,

16 The trees of the Lord are full of sap: the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir-trees are her house.
