THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

2:1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2:2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

2:3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

2:4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

2:5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

2:6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

2:7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

2:8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

2:9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

2:10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

2:11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

2:12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

16:7I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

16:8I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

16:9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

16:10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

16:11Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

67:1God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

67:2That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

67:3Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

67:4O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.

67:5Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

67:6Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

67:7God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

68:28Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us.

68:29Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.

68:30Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter thou the people that delight in war.

68:31Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.

68:32Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:

68:33To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.

68:34Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.

68:35O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.

69:1Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

69:2I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.

69:3I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

69:4They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

69:5O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.

69:6Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.

69:7Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

69:8I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.

69:9For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

69:10When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.

69:11I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.

69:12They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.

69:13But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.

69:14Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

69:15Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

69:16Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.

69:17And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble: hear me speedily.

69:18Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.

69:19Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before thee.

69:20Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

69:21They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

69:22Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.

69:23Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.

69:24Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.

69:25Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.

69:26For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.

69:27Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into thy righteousness.

69:28Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

69:29But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.

69:30I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

69:31This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

69:32The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.

69:33For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.

69:34Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.

69:35For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

69:36The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.

72:1Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.

72:2He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

72:3The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

72:4He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

72:5They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

72:6He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.

72:7In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

72:8He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

72:9They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.

72:10The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

72:11Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

72:12For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

72:13He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

72:14He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

72:15And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

72:16There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

72:17His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

72:18Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.

72:19And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

93:2Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.

93:3The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.

96:11Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

96:12Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

96:13Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

97:1The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

97:2Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

97:4His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

97:5The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
