THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

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

28:1¤ Unto thee will I cry, O Lord: O my God, be not thou silent to me: lest if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

28:2Hear, O Lord, the voice of my supplication, when I pray to thee; when I lift up my hands to thy holy temple.

28:3Draw me not away together with the wicked; and with the workers of iniquity destroy me not: Who speak peace with their neighbour, but evils are in their hearts.

28:4Give them according to their works, and according to the wickedness of their inventions. According to the works of their hands give thou to them: render to them their reward.

28:5Because they have not understood the works of the Lord, and the operations of his hands: thou shalt destroy them, and shalt not build them up.

28:6Blessed be the Lord, for he hath heard the voice of my supplication.

28:7The Lord is my helper and my protector: in him hath my heart confided, and I have been helped. And my flesh hath flourished again, and with my will I will give praise to him.

28:8The Lord is the strength of his people, and the protector of the salvation of his anointed.

28:9Save, O Lord, thy people, and bless thy inheritance: and rule them and exalt them for ever.

29:1¤ Bring to the Lord, O ye children of God: bring to the Lord the offspring of rams.

29:2Bring to the Lord glory and honour: bring to the Lord glory to his name: adore ye the Lord in his holy court.

29:3The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of majesty hath thundered, The Lord is upon many waters.

29:4The voice of the Lord is in power; the voice of the Lord in magnificence.

29:5The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars: yea, the Lord shall break the cedars of Libanus.

29:6And shall reduce them to pieces, as a calf of Libanus, and as the beloved son of unicorns.

29:7The voice of the Lord divideth the flame of fire:

29:8The voice of the Lord shaketh the desert: and the Lord shall shake the desert of Cades.

29:9The voice of the Lord prepareth the stags: and he will discover the thick woods: and in his temple all shall speak his glory.

29:10The Lord maketh the flood to dwell: and the Lord shall sit king for ever.

29:11The Lord will give strength to his people: the Lord will bless his people with peace.

30:1¤ I will extol thee, O Lord, for thou hast upheld me: and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me.

30:2O Lord my God, I have cried to thee, and thou hast healed me.

30:3Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit.

30:4Sing to the Lord, O ye his saints: and give praise to the memory of his holiness.

30:5For wrath is in his indignation; and life in his good will. In the evening weeping shall have place, and in the morning gladness.

30:6And in my abundance I said: I shall never be moved.

30:7O Lord, in thy favour, thou gavest strength to my beauty. Thou turnedst away thy face from me, and I became troubled.

30:8To thee, O Lord, will I cry: and I will make supplication to my God.

30:9What profit is there in my blood, whilst I go down to corruption? Shall dust confess to thee, or declare thy truth?

30:10The Lord hath heard, and hath had mercy on me: the Lord became my helper.

30:11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into joy: thou hast cut my sackcloth, and hast compassed me with gladness:

30:12To the end that my glory may sing to thee, and I may not regret: O Lord my God, I will give praise to thee for ever.
