10 Be still then, and know that I am God : I will be exalted among the heathem, and I will be exalted in the earth.

11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is eur refuge.


Psalm xlvii. Omnes gentes, filaudite.

CLAP your hands together, all ye people : O sing unto God with the voice of melody. 2 For the Lord is high, and to be feared ; he is the great King upon all the earth. 3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet. 4 He shall choose out an heritage for us, even the worship of Jacob, whom he loved. 5 God is gone up with a rmerry noise, and the Lord with the sound of the trump. 6 O sing praises, sing Traises unto our God: O sing praises, sing praises unto our ing. 7 For God is the king of all the earth : sing ye praises with understanding. 8 God reigneth over the heathen ; God sitteth upon his holy seat. 9 The princes of the people are joined unto the people of the God of Abraham ; for God which is very high exalted, cloth defend the earth as it were with a shield.

Psalm xlviii. Magnus Domi27tts. REAT is the Lord, and highly to be praised in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill. 2 The hill of Sion is a fair place, and the joy of the whole earth, upon the north side lieth the city of the great King : God is well known in her palaces as a sure refuge. 3 For lo, the kings of the earth are gathered, and gone by together. 4 They marvelled to see such things; they were astonished and suddenly cast down. 5 Fear came there upon them ; and sorrow, as upon a woman in her travail. 6 Thoushalt break the ships of the sea through the east wind. 7. Like as we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God; God upholdeth the same for ever. 8 We wait for thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple. 9 O God, according to thy Name, so is thy praise unto the world's end ; thy right hand is full of righteousness. 10 Let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughter of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments. ll Walk about Sion, and go round about her ; and tell the towers thereof 12 Mark well her bulwarks, set up her houses, that ye may

tell them that come after.

13 For this God is our God for ever and ever: He shai be our guide unto death. Psalm xlix. Mudite hatc, * On 171es. HEAR ye this, all ye people ; ponder it with your ears, all ye that dwell in the world ; 2 High and low, rich and poor, one with another. 3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom, and my heart sha: muse of understanding. 4 I will incline mine ear to the parable, and show my dark speech upon the harp. 5. Wherefore should I fear in the days of wickedness, and when the wickedness of my heels compasseth me round about? 6 There be some that put their trust in their goods, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches ; 7 But no man may deliver his brother, nor make agreement unto God for him : 8 For it cost more to redeem their souls ; so that he must let them alone for ever ; 9 Yea, though he live long, and see not the grave. 10 For he seeth that wise men also die and perish together, as well as the ignorant and foolish, and leave their riches for other. 11 And yet they think that their houses shall continue for ever, and that their dwelling places shall endure from one generation to another; and call the lands after their own

12 Nevertheless, man will not abide in honour, seeing he may be compared unto the beasts that perish ; this is the way of them. 13 This is their foolishness, and their posterity praise their saying. 14 They lie in the hell like sheep; death gnaweth upon them, and the righteous shall have dominion over them in the morning : their beauty shall consume in the sepulchre out of their dwelling. 15 But God hath delivered my soul from the place of hell ; for he shall receive me 16 Be not thouafraid, thougl one be made rich, orifthe glory of his house be increased ; 17 For he shall carry nc. thing away with him when he dieth, neither shall his pom follow him. 18 For while he lived, h counted himself an happ man ; and so long as thou doll well unto thyself, men will speak good of thee. 19 He shall follow the generation of his fathers, and shall never see light. 20 Man being in honour hath no understanding, but is compared unto the beasts that perish.

Psalm li. Miserere mei, Deus. I AVE mercy upon me O God, after thy great gone. according to the multitude of thy mercies do away mine offences. 2 Wash me thoroughly from my wickedness, and cleanse me from my sin ; 3 For I acknowledge my faults, and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee only have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight, that thou mightest be justified in thy saying, and clear when thou art judged. 5 Behold I was shapen in wickedness, and in sin hath my mother conceived me. 6 But lo, thou requirest truth in the inward parts, and shalt make me to understand wisdom secretly. 7 Thou shalt purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; thou shalt wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8 Thou shalt make me hear of joy and gladness, that the bones which thou hastbroken may rejoice. 9 Turn thy face from my sins, and put out all my misdeeds. 10 Make me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. 1 1 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. 12 O give me the comfort of thy help again, and stablish me with thy free Spirit. 13 Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked, and sinners shall be converted un

Psalm lii. Quid gloriaris 2

HY boastest thou thyself, thou tyrant, that thou canst do mischief? 2 Whereas the goodness of God endureth yet daily. 3 Thy tongue imagineth wickedness, and with lies thou cuttest like a sharp razor. 4 Thou hast loved unrighteousness more than goodness, and to talk of lies more than righteousness. 5 Thou hast loved to speak all words that may do hurt, O thou false tongue. 6 Therefore shall God destroy thee for ever; he shall take thee, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling, and root thee out of the land of the living.

Th; foolish body hath said in his heart, There is no God. 2 Corrupt are they, and become abominable in their wickedness; there is none that doeth good. 3 God looked down from heaven upon the children 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 also none that doeth good, In O Inot One. 5 Are not they without understanding that work wickedness, eating up my people as if they would eat bread : they have not called upon God. 6 They were afraid, where

Psalm liv. Deus, in Momine.

AVE me, O God, for thy Name's sake, and avenge me in thy strength. 2 Hear my prayer, O God, and hearken unto the words of my mouth: 3 For strangers are risen up against me ; and tyrants, which have not God before their eyes, seek after my soul. 4 Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. 5 He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: destroy thou them in thy truth. 6 An offering of a free heart will I give thee, and praise thy Name, O Lord ; because it is so comfortable. 7 For he hath delivered me out of all my trouble ; and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
