1 A Psalme of Dauid. My soule, prayse thou the Lorde, and all that is within me,
prayse his holy Name.
2 My soule, prayse thou the Lord, and forget not all his benefites.
3 Which forgiueth all thine iniquitie, and healeth all thine infirmities.
4 Which redeemeth thy life from the graue, and crowneth thee with mercy and
5 Which satisfieth thy mouth with good things: and thy youth is renued like the
6 The Lord executeth righteousnes & iudgement to all that are oppressed.
7 He made his wayes knowen vnto Moses, and his workes vnto the children of
8 The Lord is full of compassion and mercie, slowe to anger and of great
9 He will not alway chide, neither keepe his anger for euer.
10 He hath not dealt with vs after our sinnes, nor rewarded vs according to our
11 For as high as the heauen is aboue ye earth, so great is his mercie toward
them that feare him.
12 As farre as the East is from the West: so farre hath he remooued our sinnes
13 As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on
them that feare him.
14 For he knoweth whereof we be made: he remembreth that we are but dust.
15 The dayes of man are as
: as a flowre of the fielde, so florisheth he.
16 For the winde goeth ouer it, and it is gone, and the place thereof shall
knowe it no more.
17 But the louing kindnesse of the Lord endureth for euer and euer vpon them
that feare him, and his righteousnes vpon childrens children,
18 Vnto them that keepe his couenant, and thinke vpon his commandements to doe

20 Prayse the Lord, ye his Angels, that excell in strength, that doe his
commandement in obeying the voyce of his worde.
21 Prayse the Lord, all ye his hostes, ye his seruants that doe his pleasure.
22 Prayse the Lord, all ye his workes, in all places of his dominion: my soule,
prayse thou the Lorde.
1 My soule, prayse thou the Lord: O Lord my God, thou art exceeding great, thou
art clothed with glorie and honour.
2 Which couereth himselfe with light as with a garment, and spreadeth the
heauens like a curtaine.
3 Which layeth the beames of his chambers in the waters, and maketh the cloudes
his chariot, and walketh vpon the wings of the winde.
4 Which maketh his spirits his messengers, and a flaming fire his ministers.
5 He set the earth vpon her foundations, so that it shall neuer moue.
6 Thou coueredst it with the deepe as with a garment: the waters woulde stand
aboue the mountaines.
7 But at thy rebuke they flee: at the voyce of thy thunder they haste away.
8 And the mountaines ascend, and the valleis descend to the place which thou
hast established for them.
9 But thou hast set them a bounde, which they shall not passe: they shall not
returne to couer the earth.
10 He sendeth the springs into the valleis, which runne betweene the mountaines.
11 They shall giue drinke to all the beasts of the fielde, and the wilde asses
shall quench their thirst.
12 By these springs shall the foules of the heauen dwell, and sing among the
13 He watereth the mountaines from his chambers, and the earth is filled with
the fruite of thy workes.
14 He causeth
to growe for the cattell, and herbe for the vse of man, that he may bring forth
bread out of the earth,
15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oyle to make the face to
shine, and bread that strengtheneth mans heart.
16 The high trees are satisfied, euen the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath

20 Thou makest darkenesse, and it is night, wherein all the beastes of the
forest creepe forth.
21 The lions roare after their praye, and seeke their meate at God.
22 When the sunne riseth, they retire, and couche in their dennes.
23 Then goeth man forth to his worke, and to his labour vntill the euening.
24 O Lord, howe manifolde are thy workes! in wisdome hast thou made them all:
the earth is full of thy riches.
25 So is this sea great and wide: for therein are things creeping innumerable,
both small beastes and great.
26 There goe the shippes, yea, that Liuiathan, whom thou hast made to play
27 All these waite vpon thee, that thou maiest giue them foode in due season.
28 Thou giuest it to them, and they gather it: thou openest thine hand, and they
are filled with good things.
29 But if thou hide thy face, they are troubled: if thou take away their breath,
they dye and returne to their dust.
30 Againe if thou send forth thy spirit, they are created, and thou renuest the
face of the earth.
31 Glory be to the Lord for euer: let the Lord reioyce in his workes.
32 He looketh on the earth and it trembleth: he toucheth the mountaines, and
33 I will sing vnto the Lord all my life: I will prayse my God, while I liue.
34 Let my wordes be acceptable vnto him: I will reioyce in the Lord.
35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and the wicked till there be no
more: O my soule, prayse thou the Lord. Prayse ye the Lord.
1 Prayse the Lord, and call vpon his Name: declare his workes among the people.
2 Sing vnto him, sing prayse vnto him, and talke of all his wonderous workes.
3 Reioyce in his holy Name: let the heart of them that seeke the Lord, reioyce.
4 Seeke the Lord and his strength: seeke his face continually.
5 Remember his marueilous woorkes, that he hath done, his wonders and the
iudgements of his mouth,
6 Ye seede of Abraham his seruant, ye children of Iaakob, which are his elect.
7 He is the Lorde our God: his iudgements are through all the earth.
8 He hath alway remembred his couenant & promes, that he made to a thousand
9 Euen that which he made with Abraham, and his othe vnto Izhak:

16 Moreouer, he called a famine vpon ye land, and vtterly brake the staffe of

18 They helde his feete in the stockes, and he was laide in yrons,
19 Vntill his appointed time came, and the counsell of the Lord had tryed him.
20 The King sent and loosed him: euen the Ruler of the people deliuered him.
21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance,
22 That he shoulde binde his princes vnto his will, and teach his Ancients

30 Their land brought foorth frogs, euen in their Kings chambers.
31 He spake, and there came swarmes of flies and lice in all their quarters.
32 He gaue them haile for raine, and flames of fire in their land.

40 They asked, and he brought quailes, and he filled them with the bread of

like a riuer.
42 For he remembred his holy promes to Abraham his seruant,

44 And gaue them the lands of the heathen, and they tooke the labours of the
people in possession,

endureth for euer.
2 Who can expresse the noble actes of the Lord, or shewe forth all his prayse?
3 Blessed are they that keepe iudgement, and doe righteousnesse at all times.
4 Remember me, O Lorde, with the fauour of thy people: visite me with thy
5 That I may see the felicitie of thy chosen, and reioyce in the ioy of thy
people, and glorie with thine inheritance.
6 We haue sinned with our fathers: we haue committed iniquitie, and done
7 Our fathers vnderstoode not thy wonders in
, neither remembred they the multitude of thy mercies, but rebelled at the Sea,
euen at the red sea.
8 Neuerthelesse he saued them for his Names sake, that he might make his power
to be knowen.
9 And he rebuked the red Sea, and it was dryed vp, and he led them in the deepe,
as in the wildernesse.
10 And he saued them from ye aduersaries hand, and deliuered them from ye hand
of the enemie.
11 And the waters couered their oppressours: not one of them was left.
12 Then beleeued they his wordes, and sang prayse vnto him.
13 But incontinently they forgate his workes: they wayted not for his counsell,
14 But lusted with concupiscence in the wildernes, and tempted God in the
15 Then he gaue them their desire: but he sent leannesse into their soule.
16 They enuied Moses also in the tentes, and Aaron the holy one of the Lord.
17 Therefore the earth opened & swallowed vp Dathan, & couered the
companie of Abiram.
18 And the fire was kindled in their assembly: the flame burnt vp the wicked.
19 They made a calfe in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus they turned their glory into the similitude of a bullocke, that eateth
21 They forgate God their Sauiour, which had done great things in
22 Wonderous woorkes in the lande of Ham, and fearefull things by the red Sea.
23 Therefore he minded to destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stand in the
breach before him to turne away his wrath, least he shoulde destroy them.
24 Also they contemned that pleasant land, and beleeued not his worde,
25 But murmured in their tentes, and hearkened not vnto the voice of the Lorde.
26 Therefore hee lifted vp his hande against them, to destroy them in the
27 And to destroy their seede among the nations, & to scatter them
throughout the countries.
28 They ioyned themselues also vnto Baalpeor, and did eate the offrings of the
29 Thus they prouoked him vnto anger with their owne inuentions, and the plague
brake in vpon them.
30 But Phinehas stoode vp, and executed iudgement, and the plague was staied.
31 And it was imputed vnto him for righteousnes from generation to generation
32 They angred him also at the waters of Meribah, so that Moses was punished for
33 Because they vexed his spirite, so that hee spake vnaduisedly with his lippes.
34 Neither destroied they the people, as the Lord had commaunded them,
35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their workes,
36 And serued their idoles, which were their ruine.
37 Yea, they offered their sonnes, and their daughters vnto deuils,
38 And shed innocent blood, euen the blood of their sonnes, & of their
daughters, whome they offred vnto the idoles of

39 Thus were they steined with their owne woorkes, and went a whoring with their

abhorred his owne inheritance.
41 And hee gaue them into the hande of the heathen: and they that hated them,
were lordes ouer them.
42 Their enemies also oppressed them, & they were humbled vnder their hand.
43 Many a time did hee deliuer them, but they prouoked him by their counsels:
therefore they were brought downe by their iniquitie.
44 Yet hee sawe when they were in affliction, and he heard their crie.
45 And he remembred his couenant towarde them and repented acoording to the
multitude of his mercies,
46 And gaue them fauour in the sight of all them that lead them captiues.
47 Saue vs, O Lorde our God, and gather vs from among the heathen, that we may
praise thine holy Name, and glorie in thy praise.
48 Blessed be the Lorde God of
for euer and euer, and let all the people say, So be it. Praise yee the Lord.
1 Praise the Lorde, because he is good: for his mercie endureth for euer.
2 Let them, which haue bene redeemed of the Lord, shewe how he hath deliuered
them from the hand of the oppressour,
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the East and from the West, from the
North and from the South.
4 When they wandered in the desert and wildernesse out of the waie, and founde
no citie to dwell in,
5 Both hungrie and thirstie, their soule fainted in them.
6 Then they cried vnto the Lorde in their trouble, & he deliuered them from
7 And led them forth by the right way, that they might goe to a citie of
8 Let them therefore confesse before ye Lorde his louing kindnesse, and his
wonderfull woorkes before the sonnes of men.
9 For he satisfied the thirstie soule, and filled the hungrie soule with
10 They that dwell in darkenesse and in the shadowe of death, being bounde in
miserie and yron,
11 Because they rebelled against the wordes of the Lorde, and despised the
counsell of the most High,
12 When he humbled their heart with heauines, then they fell downe and there was
13 Then they cried vnto the Lorde in their trouble, & he deliuered them from
14 He brought them out of darkenes, and out of the shadowe of death, and brake
their bandes asunder.
15 Let them therefore cofesse before the Lord his louing kindnesse, and his
wonderfull woorkes before the sonnes of men.
16 For hee hath broken the gates of brasse, and brast the barres of yron
17 Fooles by reason of their transgression, and because of their iniquities are
18 Their soule abhorreth al meat, and they are brought to deaths doore.
19 Then they crie vnto the Lord in their trouble, and he deliuereth them from
20 He sendeth his worde and healeth them, and deliuereth them from their graues.
21 Let them therefore cofesse before the Lord his louing kindnesse, & his
wonderful workes before the sonnes of men,
22 And let them offer sacrifices of praise, and declare his workes with
23 They that goe downe to the sea in ships, and occupie by the great waters,
24 They see the woorkes of the Lorde, and his wonders in the deepe.
25 For he commaundeth and raiseth the stormie winde, and it lifteth vp the waues
26 They mount vp to the heauen, and descend to ye deepe, so that their soule
melteth for trouble.
27 They are tossed to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and all their
cunning is gone.
28 Then they crie vnto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of
29 He turneth the storme to calme, so that the waues thereof are still.
30 When they are quieted, they are glad, and hee bringeth them vnto the hauen,
where they would be.
31 Let them therfore confesse before the Lord his louing kindnesse, and his
wonderfull woorkes before the sonnes of men.
32 And let them exalt him in the Congregation of the people, and praise him in
the assembly of the Elders.
33 He turneth the floodes into a wildernesse, and the springs of waters into
34 And a fruitfull land into barrennes for the wickednes of them that dwell
35 Againe hee turneth the wildernesse into pooles of water, and the drie lande
into water springs.
36 And there he placeth the hungrie, and they builde a citie to dwell in,
37 And sowe the fieldes, and plant vineyardes, which bring foorth fruitfull
38 For he blesseth them, & they multiplie exceedingly, and he diminisheth
not their cattell.
39 Againe men are diminished, and brought lowe by oppression, euill and sorowe.
40 He powreth cotempt vpon princes, & causeth them to erre in desert places
out of the way.
41 Yet he raiseth vp the poore out of miserie, and maketh him families like a
flocke of sheepe.
42 The righteous shall see it, and reioyce, and all iniquitie shall stoppe her
43 Who is wise that hee may obserue these things? for they shall vnderstand the
louing kindnesse of the Lord.
1 A song or Psalme of Dauid. O God, mine heart is prepared, so is my tongue: I
will sing and giue praise.

11 Wilt not thou, O God, which haddest forsaken vs, and diddest not goe foorth,
O God, with our armies?
12 Giue vs helpe against trouble: for vaine is the helpe of man.
13 Through God we shall doe valiantly: for he shall treade downe our enemies.
1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. Holde not thy tongue, O God of my
2 For the mouth of the wicked, and the mouth full of deceite are opened vpon me:
they haue spoken to me with a lying tongue.
3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me
without a cause.
4 For my friendship they were mine aduersaries, but I gaue my selfe to praier.
5 And they haue rewarded me euil for good, and hatred for my friendship.
6 Set thou the wicked ouer him, and let the aduersarie stand at his right hand.
7 Whe he shalbe iudged, let him be condemned, and let his praier be turned into

9 Let his children be fatherlesse, and his wife a widowe.
10 Let his children be vagabounds & beg and seeke bread, comming out of

11 Let the extortioner catch al that he hath, and let the strangers spoile his
12 Let there be none to extende mercie vnto him: neither let there be any to
shewe mercie vpon his fatherlesse children.
13 Let his posteritie be destroied, and in the generation following let their
name be put out.
14 Let the iniquitie of his fathers bee had in remembrance with the Lord: and
let not the sinne of his mother be done away.
15 But let them alway be before the Lorde, that he may cut off their memorial
from ye earth.
16 Because he remembred not to shew mercie, but persecuted the afflicted and
poore man, and the sorowfull hearted to slay him.
17 As he loued cursing, so shall it come vnto him, and as he loued not blessing,
so shall it be farre from him.
18 As he clothed himselfe with cursing like a rayment, so shall it come into his
bowels like water, and like oyle into his bones.
19 Let it be vnto him as a garment to couer him, and for a girdle, wherewith he
shalbe alway girded.
20 Let this be the rewarde of mine aduersarie from the Lord, and of them, that
speake euill against my soule.
21 But thou, O Lorde my God, deale with me according vnto thy Name: deliuer me,
(for thy mercie is good)
22 Because I am poore and needie, and mine heart is wounded within me.
23 I depart like the shadowe that declineth, and am shaken off as the grashopper.
24 My knees are weake through fasting, and my flesh hath lost all fatnes.
25 I became also a rebuke vnto them: they that looked vpon me, shaked their

27 And they shal know, that this is thine hand, and that thou, Lord, hast done
28 Though they curse, yet thou wilt blesse: they shall arise & be
confounded, but thy seruant shall reioyce.
29 Let mine aduersaries be clothed with shame, and let them couer themselues
with their confusion, as with a cloke.
30 I will giue thankes vnto the Lorde greatly with my mouth & praise him
among ye multitude.
31 For he will stand at the right hand of the poore, to saue him from them that
woulde condemne his soule.
1 A Psalme of Dauid. The Lord said vnto my Lorde, Sit thou at my right hand,
vntill I make thine enemies thy footestoole.

assemblie and Congregation of the iust.
2 The workes of the Lord are great, and ought to be sought out of al them that

mercifull and full of compassion.

heritage of the heathen.
7 The workes of his handes are trueth and iudgement: all his statutes are true.
8 They are stablished for euer and euer, and are done in trueth and equitie.
9 He sent redemption vnto his people: he hath commanded his couenant for euer:
holy and fearefull is his Name.
10 The beginning of wisedome is the feare of the Lord: all they that obserue
them, haue good vnderstanding: his praise endureth for euer.
1 Prayse ye the Lord. Blessed is the man, that feareth the Lord, and deliteth
greatly in his commandements.

7 He will not be afraide of euill tidings: for his heart is fixed, and beleeueth
in the Lord.
8 His heart is stablished: therefore he will not feare, vntill he see his desire

euer: his horne shalbe exalted with glory.

saying, Of the fruite of thy body will I set vpon thy throne.

earth: he hath layde me in the darkenes, as they that haue bene dead long agoe:
4 And my spirit was in perplexitie in me, and mine heart within me was amased.
5 Yet doe I remember the time past: I meditate in all thy workes, yea, I doe
meditate in the workes of thine hands.

thirstie land. Selah.
7 Heare me speedily, O Lorde, for my spirit fayleth: hide not thy face from me,
els I shall be like vnto them that go downe into the pit.
8 Let me heare thy louing kindenes in the morning, for in thee is my trust:
shewe mee the way, that I should walke in, for I lift vp my soule vnto thee.

daughters as the corner stones, grauen after the similitude of a palace:
13 That our corners may be full, and abounding with diuers sorts, and that our
sheepe may bring forth thousands and ten thousand in our streetes:
