2 Lest he devour my soul hke a lion, and tear it in pieces, while there is none to help. 3 O Lord my God, if I have done any such thing ; or is there be any wickedness in my hands ; 4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that dealt friendly with me ; yea, I have delivered him that without any cause is mine enemy ; 5 Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me ; yea, let him tread my life down upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. 6 Stand up, O Lord, in thy wrath, and lift up thyself, because of the indignation of mine enemies; arise up for me in the judgment that thou hast commanded : 7 And so shall the congregation of the people come about thee : for their sakes therefore lift up thyself again. 8 The Lord shall judge the people : give sentence with me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to the innocency that is in me 9 O. let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end; but guide thou the just. 10 For the righteous God trieth the very hearts and reins. 11 My help cometh of God, who preserveth them that are true of heart. 12 God is a righteous judge, strong, and patient ; and God is provoked every day. 13 Is a man will not turn,
hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 14 He hath prepared for him the instruments of death ; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. 15 Behold, he travaileth with mischief; he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth ungodliness. 16 He hath graven and digged up a pit, and is fallen himself into the destruction that he made for other. 17 For his travail shall come upon his own head, and his wickedness shall fall on his own pate. 18 I will give thanks unto the Lord, according to his righteousness; and I will praise the Name of the Lord most high.

excellent is thy Name in all the world ; thou that hast set thy glory above the heavens ! 2 Out of the mouth of very babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies, that thoumightest still the enemy and the avenger.

Psalm x. Ut quid, Domine *
HY standest thou so far off, O Lord, and hidest thy face in the needful time of trouble 2 2 The ungodly, for his own lust, doth persecute the poor : let them be taken in the crafty wiliness that they have imagined. 3 For the ungodly hath made boast of his own heart's desire, and speaketh good of the covetous, whom God abhorreth 4 The ungodly is so proud, that he careth not for God. neither is God in all his thoughts. 5 His ways are alway grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight, and therefore defieth he all his enemies. 6 For he hath said in his heart, Tush, I shall never be cast down, there shall no harm happen unto me. 7. His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and fraud; under his tongue is ungodliness and vanity. 8 He sitteth lurking in the thievish corners of the streets, and privily in his lurking dens doth he murder the innocent; his eyes are set against the t". 9 For he lieth waiting se

Psalm xi. In domino confido. I. the Lord put I my trust; how say ye then to my soul, that she should flee as a bird unto the hill: 2 For lo, the ungodly bend their bow, and make ready their arrows within the quiver, that they may privily shoot at them which are true of heart 3 For the foundations will be cast down; and what hath the righteous done : 4 The Lord is in his holy temple ; the Lord's seat is in heaven. 5 His eyes consider the poor, and his eye-lids try the children of men. 6 The Lord alloweth the righteous; but the ungodly, and him that delighteth in wickedness, doth his soul abhor. 7. Upon the ungodly he shall rain snares,fire and brimstone, storm and tempest: this shall be their portion to drink. 8 For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness : his countenance will behold the thing that is just.
all deceitfullips,and the tongue that speaketh proud things: 4. Which have said, With our tongue will we prevail; we are they that ought to speak : who is Lord over us? 5 Now, for the comfortless. troubles sake of the needy, and because of the deep sighing of the poor, 6 I will up, saith the Lord, and will help every one from him that swellethagainst him, and will set him at rest. 7. The words of the Lord are pure words, even as the silver which from the earth is tried, and purified scven times in the fire. 8 Thou shalt keep them, O. Lord; thou shaltpreserve him. from this generation for ever. 9 The ungodly walk on every side : when they are exalted, the children of men are put to rebuke. Psalm xiii. Usque quo, Domine?
OW long wilt thou forget me, O Lord ; for ever ? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me ! 2 How long shall I seek counsel in my soul, and be so vexed in nuy heart : How long shall mine enemies triumph. over me ! 3 Consider, and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death: 4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him: for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice

Psalm xiv. Dixit insiftiens. HE fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. 2 They are corrupt, and become abominable in their doings; there is none that doeth good, no notone 3 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the hildren of men, to see if there were any that would understand, and seek after God ; 4 But they are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become abominable ; there is none that doeth good, no not one. 5 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues have they deceived : the poison of asps is under their lips. 6 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood. 7 bestruction and unhappiness is in their ways, and the way of peace have they not known; there is no fear of God before their eyes. 8 Have they no knowledge,
fear was ; for God is in the generation of the righteous.
10 As for you, ye have made a mock at the counsel of the poor; because he putteth his trust in the Lord.
