, 46 You all shall die like common men,
“ like other tyrants fall.” 8 Arise, and thy just judgments, Lord,
throughout the earth display; And all the nations of the world shall own thy righteous sway.
PSALM LXXXIII. 1 TOLD not thy peace, O Lord our God,
no longer silent be;
our ruin calmly see.
o'er all the land are spread;
lift up their threat'ning head.
they craftily combine;
have laid their close design.
“ their nation quite deface; 66 That no remembrance
consult with one consent;
their common malice vent.
with warlike Edom join’d, And Moab's sons, our ruin vow,
with Hagar's race combin'd. 7 Proud Ammon's offspring, Gebal too,
with Amalek conspire; The lords of Palestine, and all
the wealthy sons of Tyre. 8 All these the strong Assyrian king
their firm ally have got; Who with a powerful army aids th' incestuous race of Lot.
PART II. 9 But let such vengeance come to them,
as once to Midian came; To Jabin and proud Sisera,
at Kishon's fatal stream; 10 When thy right hand their num'rous hosts
near Endor did confound, And left their carcasses for dung
to feed the hungry ground. 11 Let all their mighty men the fate
of Zeb and Oreb share;
As Zeba and Zalmuna, so
let all their princes fare:
thus vainly boasting spake,
let us God's houses take."
which downwards swiftly move; Like chaff before the wind, let all
their scatter'd forces prove. 14, 15 As flames consume dry wood, or heath,
that on parch'd mountains grows, So let thy fierce pursuing wrath
with terrors strike thy foes.
that they may own thy name;
thy gentler means disclaim.
that thou, who claim'st alone Jehovah's name, o'er all the earth hast rais'd thy lofty throne.
PSALM LXXXIV. 1 GOD of hosts, the mighty Lord,
how lovely is the place Where thou, enthron'd in glory, show'st
the brightness of thy face! 2 My longing soul faints with desire
to view thy blest abode ; My panting heart and flesh cry out
for thee, the living God. 3 The birds, more happy far than I,
around thy temple throng; Securely there they build, and there
securely hatch their young. 4 O Lord of hosts, my King and God,
how highly blest are they, Who in thy temple always dwell,
and there thy praise display! 5 Thrice happy they, whose choice has thee
their sure protection made; Who long to tread the sacred ways
that to thy dwelling lead! 6 Who pass through Baca's thirsty vale,
yet no refreshment want; Their pools are fill'd with rain, which thou
at their request dost grant. 7 Thus they proceed from strength to strength.
and still approach more near; Till all on Sion's holy mount, before their God

my just request regard ;
be still with favour heard.

be thou his strong defence.
'tis better to attend,
a thousand days to spend.

will grace and glory give;
from them that justly live.
how highly blest is he,
bast graciously restor'd.
and all their guilt defac'd;
nor thy fierce anger last.
to thy obedience turn;
thy wrath no more may burn.
and wrath so long retain ?
thy wonted comfort gain.
which we have long implor'd;
thy wonted aid afford.
for he, with glad success,
his mourning saints will bless. 9 To all that fear his holy name
his sure salvation's near;
And in its former happy state
our nation shall appear. 10 For mercy now with truth is join'd,
and righteousness with peace, Like kind companions, absent long,
with friendly arms embrace. 11,12 Truth from the earth shall spring, whilst heav'n
shall streams of justice pour; And God, from whom all goodness flows,
shall endless plenty shower. 13 Before him righteousness shall march,
and his just paths prepare; While we his holy steps
pursue with constant zeal and care.
PSALM LXXXVI. 1 NO my complaint, O Lord my God,
thy gracious ear incline; Hear me, distress'd, and destitute
of all relief but thine. 2 Do thou, O God, preserve my soul,
that does thy name adore; Thy servant keep, and him, whose trust
relies on thee, restore. 3 To me, who daily thee invoke,
thy mercy, Lord, extend; 4 Refresh thy servant's soul, whose lopes
on thee alone depend. 5 Thou, Lord, art good, nor only good,
but prompt to pardon too; Of plenteous mercy to all those
who for thy mercy sue. 6 To my repeated humble prayer,
O Lord, attentive be; 7 When troubled, I on thee will call,
for thou wilt answer me.
O Lord, alone divine !
as are their works to thine.
the nations shall adore; Their long misguided prayers and praise
to thy bless'd name restore. 10 All shall confess thee great, and great
the wonders thou hast done; Confess thee God, the God supreme, confess thee God alone.
PART II. 11 Teach me thy way, O Lord, and I from truth shall ne'er depart;
In rev'rence to thy sacred name
devoutly fix my heart. 12 Thee will I praise, O Lord my God,
praise thee with heart sincere; And to thy everlasting name
eternal trophies rear. 13 Thy boundless mercy shown to me,
transcends my power to tell; For thou hast oft redeem'd my soul
from lowest depths of hell. 14 O God, the sons of pride and strife
have my destruction sought; Regardless of thy power, that oft
has my deliv’rance wrought. 15 But thou thy constant goodness didst
to my assistance bring; Of patience, mercy, and of truth,
thou everlasting spring! 16 O bounteous Lord, thy grace and strength
to me thy servant show ; Thy kind protection, Lord, on me,
thine handmaid's son, bestow. 17 Some signal give, which my proud foes
may see with shame and rage, When thou, O Lord, for my relief and comfort dost engage.
PSALM LXXXVII. 1 MOD'S temple crowns the holy mount;
2 His Sion's gates, in his account,
our Israel's fairest tents excel. 3 Fame glorious things of thee shall sing,
O city of th’ Almighty King! 4 I'll mention Rahab with due praise,
in Babylon's applauses join, The fame of Ethiopia raise,
with that of Tyre and Palestine; And grant that some among them born,
Their age and country did adorn. 5 But still of Sion I'll aver,
that many such from her proceed; Th’ Almighty shall establish her; 6 His gen’ral list shall show, when read,
That such a person there was born,
And such did such an age adorn. 7 He'll Sion find with numbers fill'd
of such as merit high renown; For hand and voice musicians skill'd;
and (her transcending fame to crown,) Of such she shall successions bring, Like water from a living spring.
