THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

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

120:1In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.

120:2Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.

120:3What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?

120:4Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.

120:5Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!

120:6My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

120:7I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.

121:1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

121:2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

121:3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

121:4Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

121:5The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.

121:6The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

121:7The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

121:8The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

122:1I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.

122:2Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

122:3Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

122:4Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.

122:5For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

122:6Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

122:7Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

122:8For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.

122:9Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.

123:1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

123:2Behold, 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.

123:3Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

123:4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
