64:1Hear, O God, my voice in my plaint; preserve my life from fear of the enemy:
64:2Hide me from the secret counsel of evil-doers, from the tumultuous crowd of the workers of iniquity,
64:3Who have sharpened their tongue like a sword, and have aimed their arrow, a bitter word;
64:4That they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
64:5They encourage themselves in an evil matter, they concert to hide snares; they say, Who will see them?
64:6They devise iniquities: We have it ready, the plan is diligently sought out. And each one's inward thought and heart is deep.
64:7But God will shoot an arrow at them: suddenly are they wounded;
64:8By their own tongue they are made to fall over one another: all that see them shall flee away.
64:9And all men shall fear, and shall declare God's doing; and they shall wisely consider his work.
64:10The righteous shall rejoice in Jehovah, and trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
65:1Praise waiteth for thee in silence, O God, in Zion; and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
65:2O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
65:3Iniquities have prevailed against me: our transgressions, thou wilt forgive them.
65:4Blessed is he whom thou choosest and causest to approach: he shall dwell in thy courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, of thy holy temple.
65:5By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation, thou confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of the distant regions of the sea. ...
65:6Who by his strength established the mountains, being girded with power;
65:7Who stilleth the raging of the seas, the raging of their waves, and the tumult of the peoples.
65:8And they that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens; thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
65:10Thou dost satiate its furrows, thou smoothest its clods, thou makest it soft with showers; thou blessest the springing thereof.
65:11Thou crownest the year with thy goodness, and thy paths drop fatness:
65:12They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness, and the hills are girded with gladness.
65:13The meadows are clothed with flocks, and the valleys are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, yea, they sing.
66:1Shout aloud unto God, all the earth:
66:2Sing forth the glory of his name, make his praise glorious;
66:3Say unto God, How terrible are thy works! because of the greatness of thy strength, thine enemies come cringing unto thee.
66:4All the earth shall worship thee, and sing psalms unto thee: they shall sing forth thy name. Selah.
66:5Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doings toward the children of men.
66:6He turned the sea into dry land; they went through the river on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
66:7He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes observe the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
66:8Bless our God, ye peoples, and make the voice of his praise to be heard;
66:9Who hath set our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
66:11Thou broughtest us into a net, thou didst lay a heavy burden upon our loins;
66:12Thou didst cause men to ride over our head; we went through fire and through water: but thou hast brought us out into abundance.
66:13I will go into thy house with burnt-offerings; I will perform my vows to thee,
66:14Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
66:15I will offer up unto thee burnt-offerings of fatted beasts, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
66:16Come, hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
66:17I called unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
66:18Had I regarded iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not hear.
66:19But God hath heard; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
66:20Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his loving-kindness from me!
