guilt of

and mine iniquity I did not attempt to conceal.

6 I said ; “ I will confess my sins unto JEHOVAH," and straight thou forgavest the

my sin.
7
And

every one who shall piously offer his prayer unto thee, (in the season when thy favour may yet be found) him the greatest water-floods shall not reach.

8 Then may he say, “ Thou art my refuge; thou hast preserved me from distress ; and given me cause for songs of deliverance.”

9“I myself,” saidst thou, “ will instruct thee; and direct thee the way in which thou shouldst go : I will keep mine eye

upon thee:

10 “That thou be not like unto horse or mule, which have no understanding ; whose mouths must be under the cominand of bit and bridle, else they will not come near thee.”

II Many sorrows await the wicked ; but merey will embrace him who placeth his trust in JEHOVAH,

12 Be glad and rejoice in JEHOVAH, O ye righteous ! and be joyful, all

ye

who are upright in heart.

PSALM

PSALM XXXIII.

REJOICE in JEHOVAH, o ye just! for praise becometh the righteous.

2 Praise Jehovah on the harp ; sing praises unto him with the ten-stringed psaltery.

3 Sing unto him a new song ; sing praises unto him tunefully with an exalted voice.

4 For the word of Jehovah is upright; and all his works are faithful.

5 He loveth justice and cquity; the earth is full of the goodness of JEHOVAH.

6 By the word of JEHOVAH were the heavens made ; and all their hosts by the breath of his mouth.

7 He gathered the waters of the sea together, as in a bottle ; and layed up the depths as in a store-house.

8 Let the whole earth revere JEHOVAH; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him ;

9 For he spoke, and it was made ; he commanded, and it rose into existence. 10 JEHOVAH frustrateth the counsels

of nations; and disappointeth the designs of peoples.

i But the counsel of JEHOVAH endureth for ever ; and the designs of his heart from generation to generation.

12 Happy is the nation whose God is JEHOVAH ! happy the people, whom he hath chosen for his inheritance !

13 JEHOVAH looketh down from heaven, and beholdeth all the children of men; he vieweth all the inhabitants of the world, from the place of his habitation.

14 He disposeth all their hearts ; and at. tendeth to all their works.

15 No king is saved by a numerous host, neither is any mighty man delivered by the greatness of his strength :

16 The horse, for safety, is not to be depended on; neither can he rescue any man by his great courage.

17 Lo! the eye of JEHOVAH is upon those who fear him ; and upon those who place their trust in his mercy ;

18 To guard their lives from death; and to preserve them even from famine.

19 Our souls patiently wait for JEHOVAH; for he is our help and our shield.

20 There

20 Therefore our heart rejoiceth in him; and we place our trust in his holy name.

21 Let thy loving-kindness, o JEHOVAH! be upon us ; according as we place our trust in thee.

PSALM XXXIV.

I WILL, at all times, praise JEHOVAH; his praise shall be continually in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make her boast in JeHOVAH; the afflicted shall hcar of it, and rejoice. 3

Praise JEHOVAH with me; and let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought JEHOVAH, and he heard me; and delivered me from all my fears.

5 Look up to him, and be enlightened ; and your faces shall never be ashamed.

6 [For JEHOVAH delivereth the lives of his servants; and they who place their trust in him shall not be destitute.]

7 When the afflicted man crieth, JEHOVAH heareth him; and delivereth hiin from all his troubles.

8 The angels of JEHOVAH encamp around those who revere him; and rescue them.

03

9 O!

9 O! taste and see how good JEHOVAH is ! happy is the man who placeth his trust in him.

10 Revere JEHOVAH ! ye who are his devoted servants; for they, who revere him, want nothing

u Young lions may want, and suffer hunger ; but they who seek JEHOVAH, shall want no good thing.

12 Come, ye children of men ! and listen unto me; I will teach you the fear of JEHOVAH.

13 Who is the man that desireth to live, and wisheth to see good days ?

14 Guard well thy tongue from evil ; and thy lips from uttering deceit.

15 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue

it. 16 For the eyes of JEHOVAH are upon the righteous; and his ears are open to their supplications.

17 The countenance of JEHOVAH is set against those who do evil; to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

18 The righteous cry, and JEHOVAH hearerh ; and he delivereth them from all their distresses.,

19 JEHOVAH
