Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

100:1Shout to Jehovah, all the earth.

100:2Serve Jehovah with joy, come before him with singing.

100:3Know that Jehovah He is God, He made us, and we are His, His people -- and the flock of His pasture.

100:4Enter ye His gates with thanksgiving, His courts with praise, Give ye thanks to Him, bless ye His Name.

100:5For good is Jehovah, to the age His kindness, And to generation and generation His faithfulness!

101:1Kindness and judgment I sing, To Thee, O Jehovah, I sing praise.

101:2I act wisely in a perfect way, When dost Thou come in unto me? I walk habitually in the integrity of my heart, In the midst of my house.

101:3I set not before mine eyes a worthless thing, The work of those turning aside I have hated, It adhereth not to me.

101:4A perverse heart turneth aside from me, Wickedness I know not.

101:5Whoso slandereth in secret his neighbour, Him I cut off, The high of eyes and proud of heart, him I endure not.

101:6Mine eyes are on the faithful of the land, To dwell with me, Whoso is walking in a perfect way, he serveth me.

101:7He dwelleth not in my house who is working deceit, Whoso is speaking lies Is not established before mine eyes.

101:8At morning I cut off all the wicked of the land, To cut off from the city of Jehovah All the workers of iniquity!

102:1O Jehovah, hear my prayer, yea, my cry to Thee cometh.

102:2Hide not Thou Thy face from me, In a day of mine adversity, Incline unto me Thine ear, In the day I call, haste, answer me.

102:3For consumed in smoke have been my days, And my bones as a fire-brand have burned.

102:4Smitten as the herb, and withered, is my heart, For I have forgotten to eat my bread.

102:5From the voice of my sighing Hath my bone cleaved to my flesh.

102:6I have been like to a pelican of the wilderness, I have been as an owl of the dry places.

102:7I have watched, and I am As a bird alone on the roof.

102:8All the day mine enemies reproached me, Those mad at me have sworn against me.

102:9Because ashes as bread I have eaten, And my drink with weeping have mingled,

102:10From Thine indignation and Thy wrath, For Thou hast lifted me up, And dost cast me down.

102:11My days as a shadow are stretched out, And I -- as the herb I am withered.

102:12And Thou, O Jehovah, to the age abidest, And Thy memorial to all generations.

102:13Thou -- Thou risest -- Thou pitiest Zion, For the time to favour her, For the appointed time hath come.

102:14For Thy servants have been pleased with her stones, And her dust they favour.

102:15And nations fear the name of Jehovah, And all kings of the earth Thine honour,

102:16For Jehovah hath builded Zion, He hath been seen in His honour,

102:17He turned unto the prayer of the destitute, And He hath not despised their prayer.

102:18This is written for a later generation, And the people created do praise Jah.

102:19For He hath looked From the high place of His sanctuary. Jehovah from heaven unto earth looked attentively,

102:20To hear the groan of the prisoner, To loose sons of death,

102:21To declare in Zion the name of Jehovah, And His praise in Jerusalem,

102:22In the peoples being gathered together, And the kingdoms -- to serve Jehovah.

102:23He hath humbled in the way my power, He hath shortened my days.

102:24I say, `My God, take me not up in the midst of my days,' Through all generations are Thine years.

102:25Beforetime the earth Thou didst found, And the work of Thy hands are the heavens.

102:26They -- They perish, and Thou remainest, And all of them as a garment become old, As clothing Thou changest them, And they are changed.

102:27And Thou art the same, and Thine years are not finished.

102:28The sons of Thy servants do continue, And their seed before Thee is established!
