The Book of Psalms
1 – Unto the end, a psalm for David. To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
2 – In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.
3 – Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.
4 – Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.
5 – Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.
6 – Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.
7 – The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember. According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.
8 – The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.
9 – He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.
10 – All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.
11 – For thy name’s sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great.
12 – Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen.
13 – His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land.
14 – The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.
15 – My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare.
16 – Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor.
17 – The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities.
18 – See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins.
19 – Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred.
20 – Keep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee.
21 – The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee.
