1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme of Dauid, to giue instruction. Whe
the Ziphims came and said vnto Saul, Is not Dauid hid among vs? Saue mee, O God,
by thy Name, and by thy power iudge me.
2 O God, heare my prayer: hearken vnto the wordes of my mouth.
3 For strangers are risen vp against me, and tyrants seeke my soule: they haue
not set God before them. Selah.
4 Beholde, God is mine helper: the Lorde is with them that vpholde my soule.
5 He shall rewarde euill vnto mine enemies: Oh cut them off in thy trueth!
6 Then I will sacrifice freely vnto thee: I wil praise thy Name, O Lord, because
it is good.
7 For he hath deliuered me out of al trouble, & mine eye hath seene my
desire vpo mine enemies.
1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme of Dauid to giue instruction.
Heare my prayer, O God, and hide not thy selfe from my supplication.
2 Hearken vnto me, & answere me: I mourne in my prayer, and make a noyse,
3 For the voyce of the enemie, and for the vexation of ye wicked, because they
haue brought iniquitie vpon me, and furiously hate me.
4 Mine heart trembleth within mee, and the terrours of death are fallen vpon me.
5 Feare and trembling are come vpon mee, and an horrible feare hath couered me.
6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a doue: then would I flie away and rest.
7 Beholde, I woulde take my flight farre off, and lodge in the wildernes. Selah.
8 Hee would make haste for my deliuerance from the stormie winde and tempest.
9 Destroy, O Lord, and deuide their tongues: for I haue seene crueltie and
strife in the citie.
10 Day and night they goe about it vpon the walles thereof: both iniquitie and
mischiefe are in the middes of it.
11 Wickednes is in the middes thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her
12 Surely mine enemie did not defame mee: for I could haue borne it: neither did
mine aduersarie exalt himselfe against mee: for I would haue hid me from him.
13 But it was thou, O man, euen my companion, my guide and my familiar:
14 Which delited in consulting together, and went into the House of God as
15 Let death sense vpon them: let them goe downe quicke into the graue: for
wickednes is in their dwellings, euen in the middes of them.
16 But I will call vnto God, and the Lord will saue me.
17 Euening and morning, and at noone will I pray, and make a noyse, & he wil
heare my voice.
18 He hath deliuered my soule in peace fro the battel, that was against me: for
many were with me.
19 God shall heare and afflict them, euen hee that reigneth of olde, Selah.
because they haue no changes, therefore they feare not God.
20 Hee layed his hande vpon such, as be at peace with him, and he brake his
21 The wordes of his mouth were softer then butter, yet warre was in his heart:
his words were more gentle then oyle, yet they were swordes.
22 Cast thy burden vpon the Lorde, and hee shall nourish thee: he wil not suffer
the righteous to fall for euer.
23 And thou, O God, shalt bring them downe into the pitte of corruption: the
bloudie, and deceitfull men shall not liue halfe their dayes: but I will trust
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam, concerning the dumme doue
in a farre countrey, when the Philistims tooke him in
. Be mercifull vnto me, O God, for man would swallow me vp: he fighteth
continually and vexeth me.
2 Mine enemies would dayly swallowe mee vp: for many fight against me, O thou
3 When I was afrayd, I trusted in thee.
4 I will reioyce in God, because of his word, I trust in God, and will not feare
what flesh can doe vnto me.
5 Mine owne wordes grieue me dayly: all their thoughtes are against me to doe me
6 They gather together, and keepe them selues close: they marke my steps,
because they waite for my soule.
7 They thinke they shall escape by iniquitie: O God, cast these people downe in
8 Thou hast counted my wandrings: put my teares into thy bottel: are they not in
9 When I cry, then mine enemies shal turne backe: this I know, for God is with
10 I will reioyce in God because of his worde: in the Lord wil I reioyce because
of his worde.
11 In God doe I trust: I will not be afrayd what man can doe vnto me.
12 Thy vowes are vpon me, O God: I will render prayses vnto thee.
13 For thou hast deliuered my soule from death, and also my feete from falling,
that I may walke before God in the light of the liuing.
1 To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam. When he fled
from Saul in the caue. Haue mercie vpon me, O God, haue mercie vpon me: for my
soule trusteth in thee, and in the shadowe of thy wings wil I trust, till these
2 I will call vnto the most high God, euen to the God, that performeth his
promes toward me.
3 He will send from heauen, and saue me from the reproofe of him that would
swallowe me. Selah. God wil send his mercy, and his trueth.
4 My soule is among lions: I lie among the children of men, that are set on
fire: whose teeth are speares and arrowes, & their tongue a sharpe sworde.
5 Exalt thy selfe, O God, aboue the heauen, and let thy glory be vpon all the
6 They haue layd a net for my steps: my soule is pressed downe: they haue digged
a pit before me, and are fallen into the mids of it. Selah.
7 Mine heart is prepared, O God, mine heart is prepared: I will sing and giue
8 Awake my tongue, awake viole & harpe: I wil awake early.
9 I will prayse thee, O Lord, among the people, and I wil sing vnto thee among

11 Exalt thy selfe, O God, aboue the heauens, and let thy glory be vpon all the
1 To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam. Is it true?
O Congregation, speake ye iustly? O sonnes of men, iudge ye vprightly?
2 Yea, rather ye imagine mischiefe in your heart: your hands execute crueltie
vpon the earth.
3 The wicked are strangers from ye wombe: euen from the belly haue they erred,
and speake lyes.
4 Their poyson is euen like the poyson of a serpent: like ye deafe adder that
stoppeth his eare.
5 Which heareth not the voyce of the inchanter, though he be most expert in
6 Breake their teeth, O God, in their mouthes: breake the iawes of the yong
lions, O Lorde.
7 Let them melt like the waters, let them passe away: when hee shooteth his
arrowes, let them be as broken.
8 Let them consume like a snayle that melteth, and like the vntimely fruite of a
woman, that hath not seene the sunne.
9 As raw flesh before your pots feele the fire of thornes: so let him
them away as with a whirlewinde in his wrath.
10 The righteous shall reioyce when he seeeth the vengeance: he shall wash his
feete in the blood of the wicked.
11 And men shall say, Verily there is fruite for the righteous: doutlesse there
is a God that iudgeth in the earth.
1 To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam. When Saul
sent and they did watch the house to kill him. O my God, deliuer mee from mine
enemies: defend me fro them that rise vp against me.
2 Deliuer me from the wicked doers, and saue me from the bloody men.
3 For loe, they haue layd waite for my soule: the mightie men are gathered
against me, not for mine offence, nor for my sinne, O Lord.
4 They runne and prepare themselues without a fault on my part: arise therefore
to assist me, and beholde.
5 Euen thou, O Lorde God of hostes, O God of Israel awake to visit all the
heathen, and be not merciful vnto all that transgresse maliciously. Selah.
6 They goe to and fro in the euening: they barke like dogs, and goe about the
7 Behold, they brag in their talke, & swords are in their lips: for, Who,
say they, doeth heare?
8 But thou, O Lord, shalt haue them in derision, and thou shalt laugh at all the
9 He is strong: but I will waite vpon thee: for God is my defence.
10 My mercifull God will preuent me: God wil let me see my desire vpon mine
11 Slay them not, least my people forget it: but scatter them abroad by thy
power, and put them downe, O Lord our shield,
12 For the sinne of their mouth, and the words of their lips: and let them be
taken in their pride, euen for their periurie and lies, that they speake.
13 Consume them in thy wrath: consume them that they be no more: and let them
knowe that God ruleth in Iaakob, euen vnto the ends of the world. Selah.
14 And in the euening they shall go to and fro, and barke like dogs, and go
about the citie.
15 They shall runne here and there for meate: and surely they shall not be
satisfied, though they tary all night.
16 But I wil sing of thy power, & will prayse thy mercy in the morning: for
thou hast bene my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
17 Vnto thee, O my Strength, wil I sing: for God is my defence, and my mercifull
1 To him that excelleth vpon Shushan Eduth, or Michtam. A Psalme of Dauid to
teach. When he fought against Aram Naharaim, & against Aram Zobah, when Ioab
returned and slewe twelue thousand Edomites in the salt valley. O God, thou hast
cast vs out, thou hast scattered vs, thou hast bene angry, turne againe vnto vs.
2 Thou hast made the land to tremble, and hast made it to gape: heale the
breaches thereof, for it is shaken.
3 Thou hast shewed thy people heauy things: thou hast made vs to drinke the wine
4 But now thou hast giuen a banner to them that feare thee, that it may be
displayed because of thy trueth. Selah.
5 That thy beloued may be deliuered, helpe with thy right hand and heare me.
6 God hath spoken in his holines: therefore I will reioyce: I shall deuide
Shechem, and measure the
shalbe mine, and Manasseh shalbe mine: Ephraim also shalbe the strength of mine
head: Iudah is my lawgiuer.
shalbe my wash pot: ouer
will I cast out my shoe: Palestina shew thy selfe ioyfull for me.
9 Who will leade me into the strong citie? who will bring me vnto
10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadest cast vs off, & didest not go forth, O
God, with our armies?
11 Giue vs helpe against trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
12 Through God we shall doe valiantly: for he shall tread downe our enemies.
1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme of Dauid. Heare my cry, O God:
giue eare vnto my prayer.
2 From the endes of the earth will I crye vnto thee: when mine heart is opprest,
bring me vpon the rocke that is higher then
3 For thou hast bene mine hope, and a strong tower against the enemie.
4 I will dwell in thy Tabernacle for euer, and my trust shall be vnder the
couering of thy wings. Selah.
5 For thou, O God, hast heard my desires: thou hast giuen an heritage vnto those
that feare thy Name.
6 Thou shalt giue the King a long life: his yeeres shalbe as many ages.
7 Hee shall dwell before God for euer: prepare mercie and faithfulnes that they
may preserue him.
8 So will I alway sing prayse vnto thy Name in performing dayly my vowes.
1 To the excellent musician Ieduthun. A Psalme of Dauid. Yet my soule keepeth
silence vnto God: of him commeth my saluation.
2 Yet he is my strength and my saluation, and my defence: therefore I shall not
much be mooued.
3 How long wil ye imagine mischiefe against a man? ye shalbe all slaine: ye
shalbe as a bowed wall, or as a wall shaken.
4 Yet they consult to cast him downe from his dignitie: their delight is in
lies, they blesse with their mouthes, but curse with their hearts. Selah.
5 Yet my soule keepe thou silence vnto God: for mine hope is in him.
6 Yet is hee my strength, and my saluation, and my defence: therefore I shall
not be mooued.
7 In God is my saluation and my glory, the rocke of my strength: in God is my
8 Trust in him alway, ye people: powre out your hearts before him, for God is
our hope. Selah.
9 Yet the children of men are vanitie, the chiefe men are lies: to lay them vpon
a balance they are altogether lighter then vanitie.
10 Trust not in oppression nor in robberie: be not vaine: if riches increase,
set not your heart thereon.
11 God spake once or twise, I haue heard it, that power belongeth vnto God,
12 And to thee, O Lord, mercie: for thou rewardest euery one according to his
1 A Psalme of Dauid. When he was in the wildernesse of Iudah. O God, thou art my
God, earely will I seeke thee: my soule thirsteth for thee: my flesh longeth
greatly after thee in a barren and drye land without water.
2 Thus I beholde thee as in the Sanctuarie, when I beholde thy power and thy
3 For thy louing kindnesse is better then life: therefore my lippes shall prayse
4 Thus will I magnifie thee all my life, and lift vp mine hands in thy name.
5 My soule shalbe satisfied, as with marowe and fatnesse, and my mouth shall
praise thee with ioyfull lippes,
6 When I remember thee on my bedde, and when I thinke vpon thee in the night
7 Because thou hast bene mine helper, therefore vnder the shadow of thy wings
wil I reioyce.
8 My soule cleaueth vnto thee: for thy right hand vpholdeth me.
9 Therefore they that seeke my soule to destroy it, they shall goe into the
lowest partes of the earth.
10 They shall cast him downe with the edge of the sword, and they shall be a
portion for foxes.
11 But the King shall reioyce in God, and all that sweare by him shall reioyce
in him: for the mouth of them that speake lyes, shall be stopped.
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. Heare my voyce, O God, in my prayer:
preserue my life from feare of the enemie.
2 Hide me from the conspiracie of the wicked, and from the rage of the workers
3 Which haue whette their tongue like a sword, and shot for their arrowes bitter
4 To shoote at the vpright in secrete: they shoote at him suddenly, and feare
5 They encourage themselues in a wicked purpose: they commune together to lay
snares priuilie, and say, Who shall see them?
6 They haue sought out iniquities, and haue accomplished that which they sought
out, euen euery one his secret thoughtes, and the depth of his heart.
7 But God will shoote an arrowe at them suddenly: their strokes shalbe at once.
8 They shall cause their owne tongue to fall vpon them: and whosoeuer shall see
them, shall flee away.
9 And all men shall see it, and declare the worke of God, and they shall
vnderstand, what he hath wrought.
10 But the righteous shalbe glad in the Lord, and trust in him: and all that are
vpright of heart, shall reioyce.
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme or song of Dauid. O God, praise waiteth for
, and vnto thee shall the vowe be perfourmed.
2 Because thou hearest the prayer, vnto thee shall all flesh come.
3 Wicked deedes haue preuailed against me: but thou wilt be mercifull vnto our
4 Blessed is he, whom thou chusest and causest to come to thee: he shall dwell
in thy courtes, and we shall be satisfied with the pleasures of thine House,
euen of thine holy
5 O God of our saluation, thou wilt answere vs with fearefull signes in thy
righteousnes, O thou the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are
farre off in the sea.
6 He stablisheth the mountaines by his power: and is girded about with strength.
7 He appeaseth the noyse of the seas and the noyse of the waues thereof, and the
tumults of the people.
8 They also, that dwell in the vttermost parts of the earth, shalbe afraide of
thy signes: thou shalt make the East and the West to reioyce.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou makest it very riche: the Riuer
of God is full of water: thou preparest them corne: for so thou appointest it.
10 Thou waterest abundantly the furrowes thereof: thou causest the raine to
descende into the valleies thereof: thou makest it soft with showres, and
blessest the bud thereof.
11 Thou crownest ye yeere with thy goodnesse, and thy steppes droppe fatnesse.
12 They drop vpon the pastures of the wildernesse: and the hils shalbe compassed
13 The pastures are clad with sheepe: the valleis also shalbe couered with corne:
therefore they shoute for ioye, and sing.
1 To him that excelleth. A song or Psalme. Reioyce in God, all ye inhabitants of
2 Sing forth the glory of his name: make his praise glorious.
3 Say vnto God, Howe terrible art thou in thy workes! through the greatnesse of
thy power shall thine enemies be in subiection vnto thee.
4 All the worlde shall worship thee, and sing vnto thee, euen sing of thy Name.
5 Come and beholde the workes of God: he is terrible in his doing towarde the
sonnes of men.
6 He hath turned the Sea into drie land: they passe through the riuer on foote:
there did we reioyce in him.
7 He ruleth the worlde with his power: his eyes beholde the nations: the
rebellious shall not exalt them selues. Selah.
8 Prayse our God, ye people, and make the voyce of his prayse to be heard.
9 Which holdeth our soules in life, and suffereth not our feete to slippe.
10 For thou, O God, hast proued vs, thou hast tryed vs as siluer is tryed.
11 Thou hast brought vs into the snare, and layed a strait chaine vpon our
12 Thou hast caused men to ryde ouer our heads: we went into fire and into
water, but thou broughtest vs out into a welthie place.
13 I will go into thine House with burnt offrings, and will pay thee my vowes,
14 Which my lippes haue promised, and my mouth hath spoken in mine affliction.
15 I will offer vnto thee the burnt offerings of fat rammes with incense: I will
prepare bullocks and goates. Selah.
16 Come and hearken, all ye that feare God, and I will tell you what he hath
done to my soule.
17 I called vnto him with my mouth, and he was exalted with my tongue.
18 If I regard wickednesse in mine heart, the Lord will not heare me.
19 But God hath heard me, & considered the voyce of my prayer.
20 Praysed be God, which hath not put backe my prayer, nor his mercie from me.
1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme or song. God be mercifull vnto vs,
and blesse vs, and cause his face to shine among vs. Selah.
2 That they may know thy way vpon earth, and thy sauing health among all
3 Let the people prayse thee, O God: let all the people prayse thee.
4 Let the people be glad and reioyce: for thou shalt iudge the people
righteously, and gouerne the nations vpon the earth. Selah.
5 Let the people prayse thee, O God: let all the people prayse thee.
6 Then shall the earth bring foorth her increase, and God, euen our God shall
7 God shall blesse vs, and all the endes of the earth shall feare him.
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme or song of Dauid. God will arise, and his
enemies shalbe scattered: they also that hate him, shall flee before him.
2 As the smoke vanisheth, so shalt thou driue them away: and as waxe melteth
before the fire, so shall the wicked perish at the presence of God.
3 But the righteous shalbe glad, and reioyce before God: yea, they shall leape
4 Sing vnto God, and sing prayses vnto his name: exalt him that rideth vpon the
heauens, in his Name Iah, and reioyce before him.
5 He is a Father of the fatherlesse, & a Iudge of the widowes, euen God in
his holy habitation.
6 God maketh the solitarie to dwell in families, and deliuereth them that were
prisoners in stocks: but the rebellious shal dwell in a dry land.
7 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people: when thou wentest through
the wildernesse, (Selah)
8 The earth shooke, and the heauens dropped at the presence of this God: euen
Sinai was moued at the presence of God, euen the God of Israel.
9 Thou, O God, sendest a gracious raine vpon thine inheritance, and thou didest
refresh it when it was wearie.
10 Thy Congregation dwelled therein: for thou, O God, hast of thy goodnesse
prepared it for the poore.
11 The Lorde gaue matter to the women to tell of the great armie.
12 Kings of the armies did flee: they did flee, and she that remained in the
house, deuided the spoyle.
13 Though ye haue lien among pots, yet shal ye be as the winges of a doue that
is couered with siluer, and whose fethers are like yelowe golde.
14 When the Almightie scattered Kings in it, it was white as the snowe in Zalmon.
15 The mountaine of God is like the mountaine of Bashan: it is an high Mountaine,
16 Why leape ye, ye high mountaines? as for this Mountaine, God deliteth to
dwell in it: yea, the Lord will dwell in it for euer.
17 The charets of God are twentie thousande thousand Angels, and the Lord is
among them, as in the Sanctuarie of Sinai.
18 Thou art gone vp on high: thou hast led captiuitie captiue, and receiued
giftes for men: yea, euen the rebellious hast thou led, that the Lorde God might
19 Praysed be the Lorde, euen the God of our saluation, which ladeth vs dayly
with benefites. Selah.
20 This is our God, euen the God that saueth vs: and to the Lord God belong the
issues of death.
21 Surely God will wound the head of his enemies, and the hearie pate of him
that walketh in his sinnes.
22 The Lord hath sayde, I will bring my people againe from
: I will bring them againe from the depths of the Sea:
23 That thy foote may bee dipped in blood, and the tongue of thy dogges in the
blood of the enemies, euen in it.
24 They haue seene, O God, thy goings, the goings of my God, and my King, which
art in the Sanctuarie.
25 The singers went before, the players of instruments after: in the middes were
the maides playing with timbrels.
26 Praise yee God in the assemblies, and the Lord, ye that are of the fountaine
27 There was litle Beniamin with their ruler, and the princes of Iudah with
their assemblie, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.
28 Thy God hath appointed thy strength: stablish, O God, that, which thou hast
wrought in vs,
29 Out of thy
vpon Ierusalem: and Kings shall bring presents vnto thee.
30 Destroy the company of the spearemen, & multitude of the mightie bulles
with the calues of the people, that tread vnder feete pieces of siluer: scatter
the people that delite in warre.
31 Then shall the princes come out of
shall hast to stretche her hands vnto God.
32 Sing vnto God, O yee kingdomes of the earth: sing praise vnto the Lord,
33 To him that rideth vpon ye most high heauens, which were from the beginning:
beholde, he will send out by his voice a mightie sound.
34 Ascribe the power to God: for his maiestie is vpon
, and his strength is in the cloudes.
35 O God, thou art terrible out of thine holie places: the God of Israel is hee
that giueth strength and power vnto the people: praised be God.
1 To him that excelleth vpon Shoshannim. A Psalme of Dauid. Saue mee, O God: for
the waters are entred euen to my soule.
2 I sticke fast in the deepe myre, where no staie is: I am come into deepe
waters, and the streames runne ouer me.
3 I am wearie of crying: my throte is drie: mine eyes faile, whiles I waite for
4 They that hate mee without a cause, are moe then the heares of mine heade:
they that would destroy mee, and are mine enemies falsly, are mightie, so that I
restored that which I tooke not.
5 O God, thou knowest my foolishnesse, and my fautes are not hid from thee.
6 Let not them that trust in thee, O Lorde God of hostes, be ashamed for me: let
not those that seeke thee, be confounded through mee, O God of Israel.
7 For thy sake haue I suffred reproofe: shame hath couered my face.
8 I am become a stranger vnto my brethren, euen an aliant vnto my mothers sonnes.
9 For the zeale of thine house hath eaten mee, and the rebukes of them that
rebuked thee, are fallen vpon me.
10 I wept and my soule fasted, but that was to my reproofe.
11 I put on a sacke also: and I became a prouerbe vnto them.
12 They that sate in the gate, spake of mee, and the drunkardes sang of me.
13 But Lorde, I make my praier vnto thee in an acceptable time, euen in the
multitude of thy mercie: O God, heare me in the trueth of thy saluation.
14 Deliuer mee out of the myre, that I sinke not: let me be deliuered from them
that hate me, and out of the deepe waters.
15 Let not the water flood drowne mee, neither let the deepe swallowe me vp: and
let not the pit shut her mouth vpon me.
16 Heare me, O Lord, for thy louing kindnes is good: turne vnto me according to
ye multitude of thy tender mercies.
17 And hide not thy face from thy seruant, for I am in trouble: make haste and
18 Draw neere vnto my soule and redeeme it: deliuer me because of mine enemies.
19 Thou hast knowen my reproofe and my shame, and my dishonour: all mine
aduersaries are before thee.
20 Rebuke hath broken mine heart, and I am full of heauinesse, and I looked for
some to haue pitie on me, but there was none: and for comforters, but I found
21 For they gaue me gall in my meate, and in my thirst they gaue me vineger to
22 Let their table be a snare before them, and their prosperitie their ruine.
23 Let their eyes be blinded that they see not: and make their loynes alway to
24 Powre out thine anger vpon them, and let thy wrathfull displeasure take them.
25 Let their habitation be voide, and let none dwell in their tents.
26 For they persecute him, whome thou hast smitten: and they adde vnto the
sorrowe of them, whome thou hast wounded.
27 Laie iniquitie vpon their iniquitie, and let them not come into thy

30 I will praise the Name of God with a song, and magnifie him with

32 The humble shall see this, and they that seeke God, shalbe glad, and your
heart shall liue.
33 For the Lord heareth the poore, and despiseth not his prisoners.
34 Let heauen and earth praise him: the seas and all that moueth in them.
35 For God will saue
, and builde the cities of Iudah, that men may dwell there and haue it in
36 The seede also of his seruants shal inherit it: and they that loue his name,
shall dwel therein.
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid to put in remembrance. O God, haste
thee to deliuer mee: make haste to helpe me, O Lord.
2 Let them be confounded & put to shame, that seeke my soule: let them bee
turned backewarde and put to rebuke, that desire mine hurt.
3 Let them be turned backe for a rewarde of their shame, which said, Aha, aha.
4 But let all those that seeke thee, be ioyfull and glad in thee, and let all
that loue thy saluation, say alwaies, God be praised.
5 Nowe I am poore and needie: O God, make haste to me: thou art mine helper, and
my deliuerer: O Lord, make no tarying.
1 In thee, O Lorde, I trust: let me neuer be ashamed.
2 Rescue mee and deliuer me in thy righteousnes: incline thine eare vnto me and
3 Be thou my strong rocke, whereunto I may alway resort: thou hast giuen

4 Deliuer mee, O my God, out of the hande of the wicked: out of the hande of the
euill and cruell man.
5 For thou art mine hope, O Lord God, euen my trust from my youth.
6 Vpon thee haue I beene stayed from the wombe: thou art he that tooke me out of
my mothers bowels: my praise shalbe alwaies of thee.
7 I am become as it were a monster vnto many: but thou art my sure trust.
8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise, and with thy glory euery day.
9 Cast mee not off in the time of age: forsake me not when my strength faileth.
10 For mine enemies speake of mee, and they that lay waite for my soule, take
their counsell together,
11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: pursue and take him, for there is none to
12 Goe not farre from me, O God: my God, haste thee to helpe me.
13 Let them be confounded & consumed that are against my soule: let them be
couered with reproofe and confusion, that seeke mine hurt.
14 But I will waite continually, and will praise thee more and more.
15 My mouth shall daily rehearse thy righteousnesse, and thy saluation: for I
knowe not the nomber.
16 I will goe forwarde in the strength of the Lord God, and will make mention of
thy righteousnesse, euen of thine onely.
17 O God, thou hast taught me fro my youth euen vntill nowe: therefore will I
tell of thy wonderous workes,
18 Yea, euen vnto mine olde age and graie head, O God: forsake me not, vntill I
haue declared thine arme vnto this generation, and thy power to all them, that

thinges: O God, who is like vnto thee!
20 Which hast shewed me great troubles and aduersities, but thou wilt returne,
and reuiue me, and wilt come againe, and take mee vp from the depth of the

confounded and brought vnto shame, that seeke mine hurt.
1 A Psalme of Salomon. Giue thy iudgements to the King, O God, and thy
righteousnesse to the Kings sonne.
2 Then shal he iudge thy people in righteousnesse, and thy poore with equitie.
3 The mountaines & the hilles shall bring peace to the people by iustice.
4 He shall iudge the poore of the people: he shall saue the children of the
needie, and shal subdue the oppressor.
5 They shall feare thee as long as the sunne and moone endureth, fro generatio
6 He shall come downe like the rayne vpon the mowen
, and as the showres that water the earth.
7 In his dayes shall the righteous florish, and abundance of peace shalbe so
long as the moone endureth.
8 His dominion shall be also from sea to sea, and from the Riuer vnto the endes
of the land.
9 They that dwell in ye wildernes, shall kneele before him, and his enemies
shall licke the dust.
10 The Kings of Tarshish & of the yles shall bring presents: the Kings of
and Seba shall bring giftes.
11 Yea, all Kings shal worship him: all nations shall serue him.
12 For he shall deliuer the poore when he cryeth: the needie also, and him that
hath no helper.
13 He shalbe mercifull to the poore and needie, and shall preserue the soules of
14 He shall redeeme their soules from deceite and violence, and deare shall
their blood be in his sight.
15 Yea, he shall liue, and vnto him shall they giue of the golde of

16 An handfull of corne shall be sowen in the earth, euen in the toppe of the
mountaines, and the fruite thereof shall shake like the trees of
: and the children shall florish out of the citie like the
of the earth.
17 His name shall be for euer: his name shall indure as long as the sunne: all
nations shall blesse him, and be blessed in him.
18 Blessed be the Lorde God, euen the God of Israel, which onely doeth wonderous
19 And blessed be his glorious Name for euer: and let all the earth be filled
with his glorie. So be it, euen so be it.

1 A Psalme committed to Asaph. Yet God is good to
: euen, to the pure in heart.
2 As for me, my feete were almost gone: my steps had welneere slipt.
3 For I feared at the foolish, when I sawe the prosperitie of the wicked.
4 For there are no bandes in their death, but they are lustie and strong.
5 They are not in trouble as other men, neither are they plagued with other men.
6 Therefore pride is as a chayne vnto them, and crueltie couereth them as a

8 They are licentious, and speake wickedly of their oppression: they talke

11 And they say, Howe doeth God know it? or is there knowledge in the most High?
12 Lo, these are the wicked, yet prosper they alway, and increase in riches.
13 Certainely I haue clensed mine heart in vaine, and washed mine hands in
14 For dayly haue I bene punished, and chastened euery morning.
15 If I say, I will iudge thus, beholde the generation of thy children: I haue
16 Then thought I to know this, but it was too painefull for me,
17 Vntill I went into the Sanctuarie of God: then vnderstoode I their ende.
18 Surely thou hast set them in slipperie places, and castest them downe into
19 How suddenly are they destroyed, perished and horribly consumed,
20 As a dreame when one awaketh! O Lord, when thou raisest vs vp, thou shalt
make their image despised.
21 Certainely mine heart was vexed, and I was pricked in my reines:
22 So foolish was I & ignorant: I was a beast before thee.
23 Yet I was alway with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
24 Thou wilt guide me by thy counsell, and afterward receiue me to glory.
25 Whom haue I in heauen but thee? and I haue desired none in the earth with
26 My flesh fayleth and mine heart also: but God is the strength of mine heart,
and my portion for euer.
27 For loe, they that withdrawe themselues from thee, shall perish: thou
destroyest all them that goe a whoring from thee.
28 As for me, it is good for me to draw neere to God: therefore I haue put my
trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy workes.
1 A Psalme to giue instruction, committed to Asaph. O God, why hast thou put vs
away for euer? why is thy wrath kindled against the sheepe of thy pasture?
2 Thinke vpon thy Congregation, which thou hast possessed of olde, and on the
rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed, and on this
, wherein thou hast dwelt.
3 Lift vp thy strokes, that thou mayest for euer destroy euery enemie that doeth
euill to the Sanctuarie.
4 Thine aduersaries roare in the middes of thy Congregation, and set vp their
banners for signes.
5 He that lifted the axes vpon the thicke trees, was renowmed, as one, that
brought a thing to perfection:
6 But nowe they breake downe the carued worke thereof with axes and hammers.
7 They haue cast thy Sanctuarie into the fire, and rased it to the grounde, and
haue defiled the dwelling place of thy Name.
8 They saide in their hearts, Let vs destroy them altogether: they haue burnt
all the Synagogues of God in the land.
9 We see not our signes: there is not one Prophet more, nor any with vs that
knoweth howe long.
10 O God, howe long shall the aduersarie reproche thee? shall the enemie
blaspheme thy Name for euer?
11 Why withdrawest thou thine hand, euen thy right hand? drawe it out of thy
bosome, and consume them.
12 Euen God is my King of olde, working saluation in the middes of the earth.
13 Thou didest deuide the sea by thy power: thou brakest the heads of the
dragons in the waters.
14 Thou brakest the head of Liuiathan in pieces, and gauest him to be meate for
the people in wildernesse.
15 Thou brakest vp the fountaine and riuer: thou dryedst vp mightie riuers.
16 The day is thine, and the night is thine: thou hast prepared the light and
17 Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.
18 Remember this, that the enemie hath reproched the Lorde, and the foolish
people hath blasphemed thy Name.
19 Giue not the soule of thy turtle doue vnto the beast, and forget not the
Congregation of thy poore for euer.
20 Consider thy couenant: for the darke places of the earth are full of the
habitations of the cruell.
21 Oh let not the oppressed returne ashamed, but let the poore and needie prayse
22 Arise, O God: mainteine thine owne cause: remember thy dayly reproche by the
23 Forget not the voyce of thine enemies: for the tumult of them, that rise
against thee, ascendeth continually.
1 To him that excelleth Destroy not. A Psalme or song committed to Asaph. We
will prayse thee, O God, we will prayse thee, for thy Name is neere: therefore
they will declare thy wonderous workes.
2 When I shall take a conuenient time, I will iudge righteously.
3 The earth and all the inhabitantes thereof are dissolued: but I will establish
the pillers of it. Selah.
4 I saide vnto the foolish, Be not so foolish, and to the wicked, Lift not vp
5 Lift not vp your horne on high, neither speake with a stiffe necke.
6 For to come to preferment is neither from the East, nor from the West, nor
from the South,
7 But God is the iudge: he maketh lowe and he maketh hie.
8 For in the hand of the Lord is a cup, and the wine is red: it is full mixt,
and he powreth out of the same: surely all the wicked of the earth shall wring
out and drinke the dregges thereof.
9 But I will declare for euer, and sing prayses vnto the God of Iaakob.
10 All the hornes of the wicked also will I breake: but the hornes of the
righteous shalbe exalted.
1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme or song committed to Asaph. God is
knowen in Iudah: his Name is great in

4 Thou art more bright and puissant, then the mountaines of pray.
5 The stout hearted are spoyled: they haue slept their sleepe, and all the men
of strength haue not found their hands.
6 At thy rebuke, O God of Iaakob, both the chariot and horse are cast a sleepe.
7 Thou, euen thou art to be feared: and who shall stand in thy sight, when thou
8 Thou didest cause thy iudgement to bee heard from heauen: therefore the earth
feared and was still,
9 When thou, O God, arose to iudgement, to helpe all the meeke of the earth.
10 Surely the rage of man shall turne to thy praise: the remnant of the rage
shalt thou restrayne.
11 Vowe and performe vnto the Lorde your God, all ye that be rounde about him:
let them bring presents vnto him that ought to be feared.
12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the Kings of the
1 For the excellent musitian Ieduthun. A Psalme committed to Asaph. My voyce
came to God, when I cryed: my voyce came to God, and he heard me.
2 In the day of my trouble I sought ye Lord: my sore ranne and ceased not in the
night: my soule refused comfort.
3 I did thinke vpon God, & was troubled: I praied, and my spirit was full of
4 Thou keepest mine eyes waking: I was astonied and could not speake.
5 Then I considered the daies of olde, and the yeeres of ancient time.
6 I called to remembrance my song in the night: I communed with mine owne heart,
and my spirit searched diligently.
7 Will the Lorde absent him selfe for euer? and will he shewe no more fauour?
8 Is his mercie cleane gone for euer? doeth his promes faile for euermore?
9 Hath God forgotten to be mercifull? hath he shut vp his teder mercies in
10 And I sayde, This is my death: yet I remembred the yeeres of the right hand
of the most High.
11 I remembred the workes of the Lorde: certainely I remembred thy wonders of
12 I did also meditate all thy woorkes, and did deuise of thine actes, saying,
13 Thy way, O God, is in the Sanctuarie: who is so great a God as our God!
14 Thou art ye God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy power among the

& Ioseph. Selah.
16 The waters sawe thee, O God: the waters sawe thee, and were afraide: yea, the
17 The cloudes powred out water: the heauens gaue a sounde: yea, thine arrowes
18 The voyce of thy thunder was rounde about: the lightnings lightened the
worlde: the earth trembled and shooke.
19 Thy way is in the Sea, and thy paths in the great waters, & thy
footesteps are not knowen.
20 Thou diddest leade thy people like sheepe by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
1 A Psalme to giue instruction comitted to Asaph. Heare my doctrine, O my
people: incline your eares vnto the wordes of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will declare high sentences of olde.
3 Which we haue heard and knowen, & our fathers haue tolde vs.
4 Wee will not hide them from their children but to the generation to come we
wil shewe the praises of the Lord his power also, & his wonderful woorkes
that he hath done:
5 How he established a testimonie in Iaakob, and ordeined a Law in Israel, which
he commaunded our fathers, that they shoulde teache their children:
6 That the posteritie might knowe it, and the children, which should be borne,
should stand vp, and declare it to their children:
7 That they might set their hope on God, and not forget the workes of God but
keepe his commandements:
8 And not to bee as their fathers, a disobedient & rebellious generation: a
generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirite was not faithfull
9 The children of Ephraim being armed and shooting with the bowe, turned backe
in the day of battell.
10 They kept not the couenant of God, but refused to walke in his Lawe,
11 And forgate his Actes, and his wonderfull woorkes that he had shewed them.
12 Hee did marueilous thinges in the sight of their fathers in the lande of
: euen in the fielde of Zoan.
13 He deuided the Sea, & led them through: he made also the waters to stand
as an heape.
14 In the day time also hee led them with a cloude, and all the night with a
light of fire.
15 He claue the rockes in the wildernes, and gaue them drinke as of the great
16 He brought floods also out of the stonie rocke; so that hee made the waters
to descend like the riuers.
17 Yet they sinned stil against him, and prouoked the Highest in the wildernesse,
18 And tempted God in their heartes in requiring meate for their lust.
19 They spake against God also, saying, Can God prepare a table in the
20 Behold, he smote the rocke, that the water gushed out, and the streames
ouerflowed: can hee giue bread also? or prepare flesh for his people?
21 Therefore the Lord heard and was angrie, and the fire was kindled in Iaakob,
& also wrath came vpon
22 Because they beleeued not in God, and trusted not in his helpe.
23 Yet he had comanded the clouds aboue, and had opened the doores of heauen,
24 And had rained downe MAN vpon them for to eate, and had giuen them of the
wheate of heauen.
25 Man did eate the bread of Angels: hee sent them meate ynough.
26 He caused the Eastwinde to passe in the heauen, and through his power he
brought in the Southwinde.
27 Hee rained flesh also vpon them as dust, and feathered foule as the sand of

30 They were not turned from their lust, but the meate was yet in their mouthes,
31 When the wrath of God came euen vpon them, and slew the strongest of them,
and smote downe the chosen men in
32 For all this, they sinned stil, and beleeued not his wonderous woorkes.
33 Therefore their daies did hee consume in vanitie, and their yeeres hastily.
34 And when hee slewe them, they sought him and they returned, and sought God
35 And they remembred that God was their strength, and the most high God their

oft times called backe his anger, & did not stirre vp all his wrath.
39 For he remebred that they were flesh: yea, a winde that passeth and commeth
40 How oft did they prouoke him in the wildernes? and grieue him in the desert?
41 Yea, they returned, & tempted God, and limited the Holie one of

vexation by the sending out of euill Angels.
50 He made a way to his anger: he spared not their soule from death, but gaue
their life to the pestilence,
51 And smote al the firstborne in
, euen the beginning of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham.
52 But hee made his people to goe out like sheepe, & led them in the
wildernes like a flocke.
53 Yea, he caried them out safely, and they feared not, and the Sea couered
54 And he brought them vnto the borders of his Sanctuarie: euen to this
Mountaine, which his right hand purchased.
55 He cast out the heathe also before them, and caused them to fall to the lot
of his inheritance, and made the tribes of

56 Yet they tempted, and prouoked the most high God, and kept not his

wrath with their grauen images.
59 God heard this and was wroth, and greatly abhorred
60 So that hee forsooke the habitation of Shilo, euen the Tabernacle where hee
dwelt among men,
61 And deliuered his power into captiuitie, and his beautie into the enemies
62 And hee gaue vp his people to the sworde, and was angrie with his

64 Their Priestes fell by the sworde, and their widowes lamented not.
65 But the Lord awaked as one out of sleepe, & as a strong man that after
his wine crieth out,
66 And smote his enemies in the hinder parts, and put them to a perpetuall
67 Yet he refused the tabernacle of Ioseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
68 But chose the tribe of Iudah, and
which he loued.
69 And he built his Sanctuarie as an high palace, like the earth, which he
stablished for euer.
70 He chose Dauid also his seruant, and tooke him from the shepefolds.
71 Euen from behinde the ewes with yong brought he him to feede his people in
Iaakob, and his inheritance in

2 The dead bodies of thy seruats haue they giuen to be meat vnto foules of ye

3 Their blood haue they shead like waters rounde about Ierusalem, and there was
none to burie them.

that are round about vs.
5 Lord, howe long wilt thou be angrie, for euer? shall thy gelousie burne like

kingdomes that haue not called vpon thy Name.
7 For they haue deuoured Iaakob and made his dwelling place desolate.

tender mercies preuent vs: for we are in great miserie.
9 Helpe vs, O God of our saluation, for the glorie of thy Name, and deliuer vs,

from generation to generation we will set foorth thy praise.

12 Why hast thou then broken downe her hedges, so that all they, which passe by

12 I wil prayse thee, O Lord my God, with all mine heart: yea, I wil glorifie

39 Thou hast broken the couenant of thy seruant, and profaned his crowne,
casting it on the ground.
40 Thou hast broken downe all his walles: thou hast layd his fortresses in ruine.
