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

61:1Hear, O God, my cry; attend unto my prayer.

61:2From the end of the earth will I call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: thou wilt lead me on to a rock which is too high for me.

61:3For thou hast been a refuge for me, a strong tower from before the enemy.

61:4I will sojourn in thy tent for ever; I will take refuge in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

61:5For thou, O God, hast heard my vows; thou hast given me the inheritance of those that fear thy name.

61:6Thou wilt add days to the days of the king: his years shall be as many generations.

61:7He shall abide before God for ever: bestow loving-kindness and truth, that they may preserve him.

61:8So will I sing forth thy name for ever, performing my vows from day to day.

62:1Upon God alone doth my soul rest peacefully; from him is my salvation.

62:2He only is my rock and my salvation; my high fortress: I shall not be greatly moved.

62:3How long will ye assail a man; will ye seek, all of you, to break him down as a bowing wall or a tottering fence?

62:4They only consult to thrust him down from his excellency; they delight in lies; they bless with their mouth, but in their inward part they curse. Selah.

62:5Upon God alone, O my soul, rest peacefully; for my expectation is from him.

62:6He only is my rock and my salvation; my high fortress: I shall not be moved.

62:7With God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, my refuge is in God.

62:8Confide in him at all times, ye people; pour out your heart before him: God is our refuge. Selah.

62:9Men of low degree are only vanity; men of high degree, a lie: laid in the balance, they go up together lighter than vanity.

62:10Put not confidence in oppression, and become not vain in robbery; if wealth increase, set not your heart upon it.

62:11Once hath God spoken, twice have I heard this, that strength belongeth unto God.

62:12And unto thee, O Lord, belongeth loving-kindness; for *thou* renderest to every man according to his work.

63:1O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee. My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh languisheth for thee, in a dry and weary land without water:

63:2To see thy power and thy glory, as I have beheld thee in the sanctuary;

63:3For thy loving-kindness is better than life: my lips shall praise thee.

63:4So will I bless thee while I live; I will lift up my hands in thy name.

63:5My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips.

63:6When I remember thee upon my bed, I meditate on thee in the night-watches:

63:7For thou hast been my help, and in the shadow of thy wings will I sing for joy.

63:8My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

63:9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth;

63:10They shall be given over to the power of the sword; they shall be the portion of foxes.

63:11But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: for the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
