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

7:1Jehovah my God, in thee have I trusted: save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me;

7:2Lest he tear my soul like a lion, crushing it while there is no deliverer.

7:3Jehovah my God, if I have done this, if there be iniquity in my hands;

7:4If I have rewarded evil to him that was at peace with me; (indeed I have freed him that without cause oppressed me;)

7:5Let the enemy pursue after my soul, and take it, and let him tread down my life to the earth, and lay my glory in the dust. Selah.

7:6Arise, Jehovah, in thine anger; lift thyself up against the raging of mine oppressors, and awake for me: thou hast commanded judgment.

7:7And the assembly of the peoples shall encompass thee; and for their sakes return thou on high.

7:8Jehovah shall minister judgment to the peoples. Judge me, Jehovah, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity which is in me.

7:9Oh let the wrong of the wicked come to an end, and establish thou the righteous man; even thou that triest the hearts and reins, the righteous God.

7:10My shield is with God, who saveth the upright in heart.

7:11God is a righteous judge, and a God who is indignant all the day.

7:12If one turn not, he will sharpen his sword; he hath bent his bow and made it ready,

7:13And he hath prepared for him instruments of death; his arrows hath he made burning.

7:14Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, yea, he hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood:

7:15He digged a pit, and hollowed it out, and is fallen into the hole that he made.

7:16His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violence shall come down upon his own pate.

7:17I will praise Jehovah according to his righteousness, and will sing forth the name of Jehovah the Most High.

8:1Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy majesty above the heavens.

8:2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou established praise because of thine adversaries, to still the enemy and the avenger.

8:3When I see thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast established;

8:4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

8:5Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and splendour.

8:6Thou hast made him to rule over the works of thy hands; thou hast put everything under his feet:

8:7Sheep and oxen, all of them, and also the beasts of the field;

8:8The fowl of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea, whatever passeth through the paths of the seas.

8:9Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

9:1I will praise Jehovah with my whole heart; I will recount all thy marvellous works.

9:2I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing forth thy name, O Most High.

9:3When mine enemies turned back, they stumbled and perished at thy presence:

9:4For thou hast maintained my right and my cause. Thou sittest on the throne, judging righteously.

9:5Thou hast rebuked the nations, thou hast destroyed the wicked; thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

9:6O enemy! destructions are ended for ever. -- Thou hast also destroyed cities, even the remembrance of them hath perished.

9:7But Jehovah sitteth for ever; he hath ordained his throne for judgment.

9:8And it is he that will judge the world with righteousness; he shall execute judgment upon the peoples with equity.

9:9And Jehovah will be a refuge to the oppressed one, a refuge in times of distress.

9:10And they that know thy name will confide in thee; for thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

9:11Sing psalms to Jehovah who dwelleth in Zion; tell among the peoples his doings.

9:12For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them; the cry of the afflicted ones hath he not forgotten.

9:13Be gracious unto me, O Jehovah; consider mine affliction from them that hate me, lifting me up from the gates of death:

9:14That I may declare all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion. I will be joyful in thy salvation.

9:15The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made; in the net that they hid is their own foot taken.

9:16Jehovah is known by the judgment he hath executed: the wicked is ensnared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

9:17The wicked shall be turned into Sheol, all the nations that forget God.

9:18For the needy one shall not be forgotten alway; the hope of the meek shall not perish for ever.

9:19Arise, Jehovah; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged in thy sight.

9:20Put them in fear, Jehovah: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.
