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

100:1Shout aloud unto Jehovah, all the earth!

100:2Serve Jehovah with joy: come before his presence with exultation.

100:3Know that Jehovah is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

100:4Enter into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise; give thanks unto him, bless his name:

100:5For Jehovah is good; his loving-kindness endureth for ever; and his faithfulness from generation to generation.

101:1I will sing of loving-kindness and judgment: unto thee, Jehovah, will I sing psalms.

101:2I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. When wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart.

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

101:4A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not know evil.

101:5Whoso secretly slandereth his neighbour, him will I destroy; him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer.

101:6Mine 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.

101:7He that practiseth deceit shall not dwell within my house; he that speaketh falsehoods shall not subsist in my sight.

101:8Every morning will I destroy all the wicked of the land: to cut off all workers of iniquity from the city of Jehovah.

102:1Jehovah, hear my prayer, and let my cry come unto thee.

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

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

102:4My heart is smitten and withered like grass; yea, I have forgotten to eat my bread.

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

102:6I am become like the pelican of the wilderness, I am as an owl in desolate places;

102:7I watch, and am like a sparrow alone upon the housetop.

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

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

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

102:11My days are like a lengthened-out shadow, and I, I am withered like grass.

102:12But thou, Jehovah, abidest for ever, and thy memorial from generation to generation.

102:13*Thou* wilt rise up, thou wilt have mercy upon Zion: for it is the time to be gracious to her, for the set time is come.

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

102:15And the nations shall fear the name of Jehovah, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.

102:16When Jehovah shall build up Zion, he will appear in his glory.

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

102:18This shall be written for the generation to come; and a people that shall be created shall praise Jah:

102:19For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from the heavens hath Jehovah beheld the earth,

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

102:21That the name of Jehovah may be declared in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem,

102:22When the peoples shall be gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve Jehovah.

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

102:24I said, My God, take me not away in the midst of my days! ... Thy years are from generation to generation.

102:25Of old hast thou founded the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands:

102:26*They* shall perish, but *thou* continuest; and all of them shall grow old as a garment: as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed.

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

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