THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Book of Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Eman, Ethan, sons of Core, compiled by Esdras)

115:1Not to us, O Lord, not to us; but to thy name give glory.

115:2For thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake: lest the Gentiles should say: Where is their God?

115:3But our God is in heaven: he hath done all things whatsoever he would.

115:4The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, the works of the hands of men.

115:5They have mouths and speak not: they have eyes and see not.

115:6They have ears and hear not: they have noses and smell not.

115:7They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: neither shall they cry out through their throat.

115:8Let them that make them become like unto them: and all such as trust in them.

115:9The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

115:10The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

115:11They that fear the Lord have hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

115:12The Lord hath been mindful of us, and hath blessed us. He hath blessed the house of Israel: he hath blessed the house of Aaron.

115:13He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, both little and great.

115:14May the Lord add blessings upon you: upon you, and upon your children.

115:15Blessed be you of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

115:16The heaven of heaven is the Lord's: but the earth he has given to the children of men.

115:17The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: nor any of them that go down to hell.

115:18But we that live bless the Lord: from this time now and for ever.

116:1¤ I have loved, because the Lord will hear the voice of my prayer.

116:2Because he hath inclined his ear unto me: and in my days I will call upon him.

116:3The sorrows of death have compassed me: and the perils of hell have found me. I met with trouble and sorrow:

116:4And I called upon the name of the Lord. O Lord, deliver my soul.

116:5The Lord is merciful and just, and our God sheweth mercy.

116:6The Lord is the keeper of little ones: I was humbled, and he delivered me.

116:7Turn, O my soul, into thy rest: for the Lord hath been bountiful to thee.

116:8For he hath delivered my soul from death: my eyes from tears, my feet from falling.

116:9I will please the Lord in the land of the living.

116:10I have believed, therefore have I spoken; but I have been humbled exceedingly.

116:11I said in my excess: Every man is a liar.

116:12What shall I render to the Lord, for all the things that he hath rendered to me?

116:13I will take the chalice of salvation; and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

116:14I will pay my vows to the Lord before all his people:

116:15Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

116:16O Lord, for I am thy servant: I am thy servant, and the son of thy handmaid. Thou hast broken my bonds:

116:17I will sacrifice to thee the sacrifice of praise, and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

116:18I will pay my vows to the Lord in the sight of all his people:

116:19In the courts of the house of the Lord, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.

117:1¤ O Praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

117:2For his mercy is confirmed upon us: and the truth of the Lord remaineth for ever.

118:1¤ Give praise to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

118:2Let Israel now say, that he is good: that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:3Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:4Let them that fear the Lord now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

118:5In my trouble I called upon the Lord: and the Lord heard me, and enlarged me.

118:6The Lord is my helper: I will not fear what man can do unto me.

118:7The Lord is my helper: and I will look over my enemies.

118:8It is good to confide in the Lord, rather than to have confidence in man.

118:9It is good to trust in the Lord, rather than to trust in princes.

118:10All nations compassed me about; and, in the name of the Lord I have been revenged on them.

118:11Surrounding me they compassed me about: and in the name of the Lord I have been revenged on them.

118:12They surrounded me like bees, and they burned like fire among thorns: and in the name of the Lord I was revenged on them.

118:13Being pushed I was overturned that I might fall: but the Lord supported me.

118:14The Lord is my strength and my praise: and he is become my salvation.

118:15The voice of rejoicing and of salvation is in the tabernacles of the just.

118:16The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength: the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me: the right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength.

118:17I shall not die, but live: and shall declare the works of the Lord.

118:18The Lord chastising hath chastised me: but he hath not delivered me over to death.

118:19Open ye to me the gates of justice: I will go in to them, and give praise to the Lord.

118:20This is the gate of the Lord, the just shall enter into it.

118:21I will give glory to thee because thou hast heard me: and art become my salvation.

118:22The stone which the builders rejected; the same is become the head of the corner.

118:23This is the Lord's doing , and it is wonderful in our eyes.

118:24This is the day which the Lord hath made: let us be glad and rejoice therein.

118:25O Lord, save me: O Lord, give good success.

118:26Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord. We have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

118:27The Lord is God, and he hath shone upon us. Appoint a solemn day, with shady boughs, even to the horn of the altar.

118:28Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, and I will exalt thee. I will praise thee, because thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.

118:29O praise ye the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
