fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
 Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine
enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward
part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
 Destroy thou
them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for
they have rebelled against thee.
 But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout
for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
 For thou,
LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
 O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
 Have mercy
upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
 My soul is also sore
vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?
 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
 I am weary
with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
 Mine eye is
consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
 Depart from me, all ye workers
of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.
 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the
LORD will receive my prayer.
 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and
be ashamed suddenly.
 O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:
Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.
 O LORD my God,
if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;
 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace
with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
 Let the enemy persecute my
soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me
to the judgment that thou hast commanded.
 So shall the congregation of the people compass thee
about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O
LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.
 Oh let the wickedness
of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.
 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry
with the wicked every day.
 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made
 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against
 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth
 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
 His mischief
shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.
 I will
praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most
 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that
thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and
the son of man, that thou visitest him?
 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and
hast crowned him with glory and honour.
 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy
hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
