The Book of
PSALMS 121 - 140

121:1

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

121:2

My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

121:3

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

121:4

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

121:5

The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

121:6

The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

121:7

The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

121:8

The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

122:1

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.

122:2

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

122:3

Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

122:4

Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.

122:5

For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

122:6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

122:7

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

122:8

For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

122:9

Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

123:1

Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

123:2

Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

123:3

Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

123:4

Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

124:1

If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;

124:2

If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

124:3

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

124:4

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

124:5

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

124:6

Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

124:7

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

124:8

Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

125:1

They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

125:2

As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

125:3

For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

125:4

Do good, O LORD, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.

125:5

As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.

126:1

When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

126:2

Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.

126:3

The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

126:4

Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.

126:5

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

126:6

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

127:1

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

127:2

It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

127:3

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

127:4

As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

127:5

Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

128:1

Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.

128:2

For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

128:3

Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

128:4

Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

128:5

The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

128:6

Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

129:1

Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say:

129:2

Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.

129:3

The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.

129:4

The LORD is righteous: he hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

129:5

Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.

129:6

Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:

129:7

Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.

129:8

Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of the LORD be upon you: we bless you in the name of the LORD.

130:1

Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.

130:2

Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

130:3

If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

130:4

But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

130:5

I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.

130:6

My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

130:7

Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

130:8

And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

131:1

Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me.

131:2

Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

131:3

Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever.

132:1

Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions:

132:2

How he sware unto the LORD, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;

132:3

Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

132:4

I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,

132:5

Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

132:6

Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.

132:7

We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool.

132:8

Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength.

132:9

Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

132:10

For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.

132:11

The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.

132:12

If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.

132:13

For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

132:14

This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

132:15

I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

132:16

I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

132:17

There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed.

132:18

His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

133:1

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

133:2

It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

133:3

As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

134:1

Behold, bless ye the LORD, all ye servants of the LORD, which by night stand in the house of the LORD.

134:2

Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the LORD.

134:3

The LORD that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.

135:1

Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.

135:2

Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God.

135:3

Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.

135:4

For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.

135:5

For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.

135:6

Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.

135:7

He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.

135:8

Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.

135:9

Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.

135:10

Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;

135:11

Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:

135:12

And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.

135:13

Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.

135:14

For the LORD will judge his people, and he will repent himself concerning his servants.

135:15

The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.

135:16

They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;

135:17

They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.

135:18

They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.

135:19

Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of Aaron:

135:20

Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless the LORD.

135:21

Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.

136:1

O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:2

O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:3

O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:4

To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:5

To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:6

To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:7

To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:8

The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:9

The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:10

To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:11

And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:12

With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:13

To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:14

And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:15

But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:16

To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:17

To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:18

And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:19

Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:20

And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:21

And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:22

Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:23

Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

136:24

And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:25

Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.

136:26

O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.

137:1

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

137:2

We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

137:3

For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

137:4

How shall we sing the LORD's song in a strange land?

137:5

If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

137:6

If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

137:7

Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

137:8

O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.

137:9

Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

138:1

I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

138:2

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

138:3

In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.

138:4

All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth.

138:5

Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.

138:6

Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.

138:7

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.

138:8

The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

139:1

O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.

139:2

Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.

139:3

Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

139:4

For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.

139:5

Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.

139:6

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.

139:7

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?

139:8

If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

139:9

If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

139:10

Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

139:11

If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

139:12

Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

139:13

For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

139:14

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

139:15

My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.

139:16

Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

139:17

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

139:18

If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

139:19

Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.

139:20

For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.

139:21

Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

139:22

I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

139:23

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

139:24

And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

140:1

Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;

140:2

Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.

140:3

They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.

140:4

Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.

140:5

The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.

140:6

I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.

140:7

O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.

140:8

Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.

140:9

As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.

140:10

Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

140:11

Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.

140:12

I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.

140:13

Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
