61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry
unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the rock that is higher
61:3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the
61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever. I will trust in the covert
of thy wings. Selah.
61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows. Thou hast given me the heritage
of those that fear thy name.
62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before
him. God is a refuge for us. Selah.
62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery. If riches
increase, set not your heart upon them.
62:11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power
belongeth unto God.
65:2 O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
63:1-11 <A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.>
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall
praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate
on thee in the night watches. Because thou hast been my help, therefore
in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. My soul followeth hard after
thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. But those that seek my soul, to destroy
it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. They shall fall by the
sword: they shall be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in
God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory; but the mouth of them
that speak lies shall be stopped.
65:4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest and causest to approach
unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts. We shall be satisfied with
the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
66:9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to
68:6 God setteth the solitary (word 'solitary'
root meaning is 'unity') in families. He bringeth
out those which are bound with chains, but the rebellious (original
is 'stubborn') dwell in a dry land.
68:20 He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD the
Lord belong the issues from (or, just as easily
– 'of') death.
69:1-4 <To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, A Psalm of David.>
Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep
mire, where there is no standing. I am come into deep waters, where the
floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried. Mine eyes
fail while I wait for my God. They that hate me without a cause are more
than the hairs of mine head. They that would destroy me, being mine enemies
wrongfully, are mighty. Then I restored that which I took not away.
69:8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my
69:19 Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour.
Mine adversaries are all before thee.
69:20 Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness. And
I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters,
but I found none.
69:28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living,
and not be written with the righteous.
70:5 But I am poor and needy. Make haste unto me, O God. Thou art my
help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
71:19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great
things. O God, who is like unto thee!
72:4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children
of the needy and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
72:12-14 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also,
and him that hath no helper. He shall spare the poor and needy and shall
save the souls of the needy. He shall redeem their soul from deceit and
violence; and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
73:2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh
73:4 For there are no bands in their death, but their strength is firm.
73:5 They are not in trouble as other men, neither are they plagued
like other men.
73:6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth
them as a garment.
73:7 Their eyes stand out with fatness. They have more than heart could
73:8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression. They
73:24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me
73:26 My flesh and my heart faileth. But God is the strength of my
heart, and my portion for ever.
73:28 But (word 'but', not
in original) it is good for me to draw
near to God. I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all
