PSALM CIV. 1—7, 19, 23-35.

LESS the LORD, O my soul. LORD my God, thou

art very great; thou art clothed with honor 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 ; who maketh the clouds his 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 not 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. He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going-down.

9. Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labor until the evening.

10. O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. 11. So is this great and wide sea,

wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

12. There go the ships; there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

13. These wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

14. That thou givest them they gather : thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

15. Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled ; thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

16. Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created ; and thou renewest the face of the earth.

17. The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever : the LORD shall rejoice in his works.

18. He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth : he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

19. I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

20. My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.

21. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.





UDGE me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integ

rity : I have trusted also in the LORD ; therefore I shall not slide.

2. Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

3. For thy loving-kindness is before mine eyes, and I have walked in thy truth. 4. I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go

in with dissemblers.

5. I have hated the congregation of evil doers, and will not sit with the wicked.

6. I will wash mine hands in innocency : so will I compass thine altar, O LORD ;

7. That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

8. LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honor dwelleth.

9. Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men ;

10. In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

11. But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity : redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

12. My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
