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.
68:1Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.
68:2As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
68:3But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
68:4Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
68:5A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
68:6God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
68:7O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah:
68:8The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
68:9Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
68:10Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
68:11The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.
68:12Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
68:13Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
68:14When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.
68:15The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.
68:16Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.
68:17The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
68:18Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.
68:19Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
68:20He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the Lord belong the issues from death.
68:21But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
68:22The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea:
68:23That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same.
68:24They have seen thy goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.
68:25The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.
68:26Bless ye God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
68:27There is little Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
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.
