hide me in his pavilion: in the scoret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy ; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LoRD. | 7 Hear, O Lok D, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. | 8.

Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert. 5 Because they regard not the works of the Lok D, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up. 6 Blessed be the LoRD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. 7. The Lo R D is my strength, and my shield ; my heart trusted in him, and I aum helped : therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. 8 The Lok D is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his ancinted. 9 Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.

Lok D, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8 I cried to thee, O Lo RD ; and unto the Lo RD I made supplication. 9 What profit is there in my blood, v.hen I go down to the pit 2 Shall the dust praise thee 2 shall it doi: thy truth? 10 Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon on me : Lo R D, be thou my helper. 11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing : thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thec, and not be silent.
