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.
