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

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.

65:9Thou hast visited the earth, thou hast watered it; thou greatly enrichest it: the river of God is full of water; thou providest their corn, when thou hast so prepared it:

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.

66:10For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

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!
