The Book of Psalms
1 – When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people:
2 – Judea made his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.
3 – The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back.
4 – The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like the lambs of the flock.
5 – What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?
6 – Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?
7 – At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, at the presence of the God of Jacob:
8 – Who turned the rock into pools of water, and the stony hill into fountains of waters.
9 – Not to us, O Lord, not to us; but to thy name give glory.
10 – For thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake: lest the gentiles should say: Where is their God?
11 – But our God is in heaven: he hath done all things whatsoever he would.
12 – The idols of the gentiles are silver and gold, the works of the hands of men.
13 – They have mouths and speak not: they have eyes and see not.
14 – They have ears and hear not: they have noses and smell not.
15 – They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: neither shall they cry out through their throat.
16 – Let them that make them become like unto them: and all such as trust in them.
17 – The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.
18 – The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.
19 – They that fear the Lord hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.
20 – The Lord hath been mindful of us, and hath blessed us. He hath blessed the house of Israel: he hath blessed the house of Aaron.
21 – He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, both little and great.
22 – May the Lord add blessings upon you: upon you, and upon your children.
23 – Blessed be you of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
24 – The heaven of heaven is the Lord’s: but the earth he has given to the children of men.
25 – The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: nor any of them that go down to hell.
26 – But we that live bless the Lord: from this time now and for ever.
