THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

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

94:1¤ The Lord is the God to whom revenge belongeth: the God of revenge hath acted freely.

94:2Lift up thyself, thou that judgest the earth: render a reward to the proud.

94:3How long shall sinners, O Lord: how long shall sinners glory?

94:4Shall they utter, and speak iniquity: shall all speak who work injustice?

94:5Thy people, O Lord, they have brought low: and they have afflicted thy inheritance.

94:6They have slain the widow and the stranger: and they have murdered the fatherless.

94:7And they have said: The Lord shall not see: neither shall the God of Jacob understand.

94:8Understand, ye senseless among the people: and, you fools, be wise at last.

94:9He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? or he that formed the eye, doth he not consider?

94:10He that chastiseth nations, shall he not rebuke: he that teacheth man knowledge?

94:11The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain.

94:12Blessed is the man whom thou shalt instruct, O Lord: and shalt teach him out of thy law.

94:13That thou mayst give him rest from the evil days: till a pit be dug for the wicked.

94:14For the Lord will not cast off his people: neither will he forsake his own inheritance.

94:15Until justice be turned into judgment: and they that are near it are all the upright in heart.

94:16Who shall rise up for me against the evildoers? or who shall stand with me against the workers of iniquity?

94:17Unless the Lord had been my helper, my soul had almost dwelt in hell.

94:18If I said: My foot is moved: thy mercy, O Lord, assisted me.

94:19According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, thy comforts have given joy to my soul.

94:20Doth the seat of iniquity stick to thee, who framest labour in commandment?

94:21They will hunt after the soul of the just, and will condemn innocent blood.

94:22But the Lord is my refuge: and my God the help of my hope.

94:23And he will render them their iniquity : and in their malice he will destroy them: the Lord our God will destroy them.

95:1¤ Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour.

95:2Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.

95:3For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

95:4For in his hand are all the ends of the earth: and the heights of the mountains are his.

95:5For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

95:6Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us.

95:7For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.

95:8To day if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts:

95:9As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.

95:10Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart.

95:11And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.

96:1¤ Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle: sing to the Lord, all the earth.

96:2Sing ye to the Lord and bless his name: shew forth his salvation from day to day.

96:3Declare his glory among the Gentiles: his wonders among all people.

96:4For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

96:5For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.

96:6Praise and beauty are before him: holiness and majesty in his sanctuary.

96:7Bring ye to the Lord, O ye kindreds of the Gentiles, bring ye to the Lord glory and honour:

96:8Bring to the Lord glory unto his name. Bring up sacrifices, and come into his courts:

96:9Adore ye the Lord in his holy court. Let all the earth be moved at his presence.

96:10Say ye among the Gentiles, the Lord hath reigned. For he hath corrected the world, which shall not be moved: he will judge the people with justice.

96:11Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad, let the sea be moved, and the fulness thereof:

96:12The fields and all things that are in them shall be joyful. Then shall all the trees of the woods rejoice

96:13before the face of the Lord, because he cometh: because he cometh to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with justice, and the people with his truth.
