THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

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

91:1¤ He that dwelleth in the aid of the most High, shall abide under the protection of the God of Jacob.

91:2He shall say to the Lord: Thou art my protector, and my refuge: my God, in him will I trust.

91:3For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word.

91:4He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust.

91:5His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.

91:6Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil.

91:7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee.

91:8But thou shalt consider with thy eyes: and shalt see the reward of the wicked.

91:9Because thou, O Lord, art my hope: thou hast made the most High thy refuge.

91:10There shall no evil come to thee: nor shall the scourge come near thy dwelling.

91:11For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways.

91:12In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

91:13Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.

91:14Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name.

91:15He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation, I will deliver him, and I will glorify him.

91:16I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.

92:1¤ It is good to give praise to the Lord: and to sing to thy name, O most High.

92:2To shew forth thy mercy in the morning, and thy truth in the night:

92:3Upon an instrument of ten strings, upon the psaltery: with a canticle upon the harp.

92:4For thou hast given me, O Lord, a delight in thy doings: and in the works of thy hands I shall rejoice.

92:5O Lord, how great are thy works! thy thoughts are exceeding deep.

92:6The senseless man shall not know: nor will the fool understand these things.

92:7When the wicked shall spring up as grass: and all the workers of iniquity shall appear: That they may perish for ever and ever:

92:8But thou, O Lord, art most high for evermore.

92:9For behold thy enemies, O lord, for behold thy enemies shall perish: and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

92:10But my horn shall be exalted like that of the unicorn: and my old age in plentiful mercy.

92:11My eye also hath looked down upon my enemies: and my ear shall hear of the downfall of the malignant that rise up against me.

92:12The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus.

92:13They that are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.

92:14They shall still increase in a fruitful old age: and shall be well treated,

92:15That they may shew, That the Lord our God is righteous, and there is no iniquity in him.

93:1¤ The Lord hath reigned, he is clothed with beauty: the Lord is clothed with strength, and hath girded himself. For he hath established the world which shall not be moved.

93:2Thy throne is prepared from of old: thou art from everlasting.

93:3The floods have lifted up, O Lord: the floods have lifted up their voice. The floods have lifted up their waves,

93:4With the noise of many waters. Wonderful are the surges of the sea: wonderful is the Lord on high.

93:5Thy testimonies are become exceedingly credible: holiness becometh thy house, O Lord, unto length of days.
