The Book of PSALMS 101 - 110

101:1  I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.

101:2  I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

101:3  I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

101:4  A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.

101:5  Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

101:6  Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.

101:7  He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

101:8  I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

102:1  Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.

102:2  Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.

102:3  For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.

102:4  My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.

102:5  By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.

102:6  I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.

102:7  I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

102:8  Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.

102:9  For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.

102:10  Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.

102:11  My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.

102:12  But thou, O LORD, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

102:13  Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

102:14  For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

102:15  So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

102:16  When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

102:17  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

102:18  This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.

102:19  For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;

102:20  To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;

102:21  To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

102:22  When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.

102:23  He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.

102:24  I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.

102:25  Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.

102:26  They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:

102:27  But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

102:28  The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.

103:1  Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

103:2  Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

103:3  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

103:4  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

103:5  Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

103:6  The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

103:7  He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

103:8  The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

103:9  He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

103:10  He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

103:11  For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

103:13  Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

103:14  For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

103:15  As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

103:16  For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

103:17  But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

103:18  To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

103:19  The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

103:20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

103:21  Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

103:22  Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.

104:1  Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

104:2  Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

104:3  Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

104:4  Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

104:5  Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

104:6  Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

104:7  At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

104:8  They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

104:9  Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

104:10  He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

104:11  They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

104:12  By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

104:13  He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

104:14  He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

104:15  And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

104:16  The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

104:17  Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

104:18  The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

104:19  He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

104:20  Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

104:21  The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.

104:22  The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

104:23  Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

104:24  O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

104:25  So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

104:26  There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

104:27  These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

104:28  That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

104:29  Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

104:30  Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

104:31  The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.

104:32  He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

104:33  I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

104:34  My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.

104:35  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.

105:1  O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

105:2  Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.

105:3  Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

105:4  Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

105:5  Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

105:6  O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

105:7  He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

105:8  He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.

105:9  Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;

105:10  And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

105:11  Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

105:12  When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

105:13  When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;

105:14  He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

105:15  Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

105:16  Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.

105:17  He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

105:18  Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

105:19  Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

105:20  The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

105:21  He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:

105:22  To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

105:23  Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

105:24  And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

105:25  He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.

105:26  He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.

105:27  They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.

105:28  He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.

105:29  He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

105:30  Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

105:31  He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.

105:32  He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.

105:33  He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.

105:34  He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,

105:35  And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

105:36  He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

105:37  He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

105:38  Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.

105:39  He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.

105:40  The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

105:41  He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.

105:42  For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.

105:43  And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

105:44  And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;

105:45  That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.

106:1  Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

106:2  Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise?

106:3  Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

106:4  Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;

106:5  That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.

106:6  We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

106:7  Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.

106:8  Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.

106:9  He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

106:10  And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

106:11  And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.

106:12  Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

106:13  They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

106:14  But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.

106:15  And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

106:16  They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.

106:17  The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram.

106:18  And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

106:19  They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

106:20  Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

106:21  They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

106:22  Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.

106:23  Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.

106:24  Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:

106:25  But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.

106:26  Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:

106:27  To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

106:28  They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

106:29  Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.

106:30  Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed.

106:31  And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.

106:32  They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:

106:33  Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

106:34  They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:

106:35  But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.

106:36  And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

106:37  Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

106:38  And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

106:39  Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

106:40  Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

106:41  And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

106:42  Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.

106:43  Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

106:44  Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:

106:45  And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.

106:46  He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

106:47  Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.

106:48  Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.

107:1  O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

107:2  Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

107:3  And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

107:4  They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

107:5  Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

107:6  Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

107:7  And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

107:8  Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:9  For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

107:10  Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

107:11  Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:

107:12  Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.

107:13  Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.

107:14  He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.

107:15  Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:16  For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

107:17  Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

107:18  Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

107:19  Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

107:20  He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

107:21  Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:22  And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

107:23  They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

107:24  These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

107:25  For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

107:26  They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

107:27  They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.

107:28  Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

107:29  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

107:30  Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

107:31  Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

107:32  Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

107:33  He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;

107:34  A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

107:35  He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.

107:36  And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

107:37  And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.

107:38  He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

107:39  Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

107:40  He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.

107:41  Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.

107:42  The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

107:43  Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.

108:1  O god, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

108:2  Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

108:3  I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

108:4  For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.

108:5  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth;

108:6  That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.

108:7  God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

108:8  Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

108:9  Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.

108:10  Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

108:11  Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?

108:12  Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

108:13  Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

109:1  Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;

109:2  For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

109:3  They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.

109:4  For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.

109:5  And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

109:6  Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.

109:7  When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.

109:8  Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

109:9  Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

109:10  Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.

109:11  Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.

109:12  Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.

109:13  Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

109:14  Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

109:15  Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

109:16  Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

109:17  As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

109:18  As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

109:19  Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

109:20  Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

109:21  But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.

109:22  For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.

109:23  I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.

109:24  My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.

109:25  I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.

109:26  Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:

109:27  That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it.

109:28  Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.

109:29  Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.

109:30  I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.

109:31  For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.

110:1  The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

110:2  The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

110:3  Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

110:4  The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

110:5  The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

110:6  He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

110:7  He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
