BRAGADAYJAH 1410 Psalm 68: A Psalm of David A Song of triumph and Glory Past II When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon. The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan. Why leap ye, ye hill? This is the hill which God desireth to dwell in, yea the Lord will dwell in it for ever. The chariots of God are twenty thousand even thousands of angels; the Lord is among them as in Sinai in the holy place. Thou hast ascended on high; thou has lead captivity captive; thou hast received gifts of men, yea for the rebellious also that the Lord God might dwell among them. Blessed is the Lord God who daily leadeth us with benefits. Even the God of our salvation. He that is our God, the God of salvation and unto God belongs the issues from death; but God shall wound the head of the enemies; and the hairy scalp of such a one as goeth on still in his trespasses. The Lord said I will bring again from Bashan. I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea; that thy foot may be pipped in the blood of thy enemies; and the tongues of thy dogs in the same. They have seen thy goings, O God even the goings O God my king in the sanctuary.

BRAGADAYJAH 1409 Psalm 68: A Psalm of David A Song of Triumph and Glory, Part I Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered; let them also that hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away; as wax melteth before the flame, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God; yea let them exceedingly rejoice. Sing unto God; sing praises to His name. Extol him that rideth upon the heavens by His name JAH, and rejoice before Him. A Father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows is God in His holy habitation. God setteth the solitary in families; He bringeth out those who are bound with chains; but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. O God when thou wentest before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness, the earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God, the God of Israel. Thou, O God did send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thy inheritance. when it was weary. Thy congregation has dwelt therein. Thou O God hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor. The Lord gave the word, great was the company of those that publish it. Kings of armies did flee apace, and she that tarried at home divided the spoil Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove, covered with silver and her feathers with yellow gold.

BRAGADAYJAH 1407 Psalm, 66 Part II Praise for God’s many Blessings. O bless our God ye people, and make the voice of His praise to be heard. Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved. For thou O God has proved us, thou hast tried us as silver is tried. Thou broughtest us into the net, thou laidst affliction upon our loins, Thou has caused men to ride over our heads. We went through fire and through water; but thou brought us out into a wealthy place. I will go into thy house with burnt-offerings, I will pay thee my vows, which my lips have uttered, and my mouth has spoken when I was in trouble. I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifice of fatlings, with the incence of rams. I will offer bullocks with goats. Come and hear all ye that fear God; and I will declare all that he has done for my soul. I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. But verily God hath heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God which has not turned away my prayer nor his mercy from me.

BRAGADAYJAH 1406 Psalm 66: Part I Praise for God’s manifold Blessings Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Sing forth the honour of his name; make his praise glorious; say unto God how terrible art thou in thy works? Through the greatness of thy power shall thy enemies submit themselves unto thee. All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee, they shall sing in thine name. Come and see the works of God; He is terrible in his doings towards the children of men. He turned the sea into dry land, they went through the flood on foot; there did we rejoice in thee. He ruleth by His power, forever, His eyes behold the nations. Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. [To be continued].

BRAGADAYJAH 1404 Psalm 64: A Psalm of David A Cry for God’s Protection. Hear my voice O God in my prayer, preserve my life from fear of the nemey. Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity,who whet their tongues iike a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words, that they may shoot in secret at the perfect, Suddenly do thjey shoot at him and fear not. They encourage themselves in an evil matter, they commune of laying snares privily, they say who ahall see them? They search out iniquiry; they accomplish a diligent ssearch, both the inward thoughts of every one of them,;l and the heart is deep. But God shall shoot at them with an arrow. Suddenly shall they be wounded. So shall they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves; all that see them shall flee away; and all men shall fear and declare the work of God. For they shail wisely consider of his doing. The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall trust in Him and ali the upright in heart shall glory.

BRAGADAYJAH 1403 Psalm 63. A Psalm of David Thirsting for God O God, thou art my God, early will I seek thee, my flesh longeth for thee, in a dry and tbirsty 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 wil lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with morrow, and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips. When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate oupon thee in the night watches, because thou has been my health, 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, Everyone that sweareth by him shall glory; but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

BRAGADAYJAH 1402 Psalm 62: A Psalm of David Waiting upon God Truly my soul waiteth upon God; from Him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; for He is my defence. I shall not be greatly moved. How long will ye imagine mischief against the Man? You shall be slain all of you. As a bowing wall shall you be, and as a tottering fence. They only consult to cast him down from his excellency. They delight in lies. They bless with their mouth; but they curse inwardly. My soul wait thou upon God; for my excpetation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, and my glory. The rock of my strength and my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times ye people; pour out your heart before Him. God is a refuge for us. Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie; to be laid in the balance they are altogether lighter than vanity Trust not in oppression and become not vain in robbery. If riches increase set not your heart upon them. God has spoken once, twice, have I heard this, that power belongeth unto God. Also unto thee O Lord, belongeth mercy, for thou rendereth to every man according to his work.

BRAGADAYJAH 1401 Psalm 61: A Psalm of David God is the Shelter Hear my cry O God, attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee. When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou has been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever. I will trust in the covert of thy wings. For thou O God has heard my vows; thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name. Thou wilt prolong the king’s life, and his years as many generations, He shall abide before God for ever. O prepare mercy and truth which may preserve him, So will I sing praises unto thy name for ever that I may daily perform my vows.

BRAGADAYJAH 1400 Psalm 60 A Cry for Help O God thou hast cast off; thou hast scattered us; thou hast been displeased at us. O turn thyself to us again. Thou hast made the earth to tremble, thou hast broken it. O heal the breaches thereof for it is shaken. Thou hast shown thy people hard things, thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee; that it may be displayed because of thy truth; that thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand and hear me. God has spoken in His holiness. I will rejoice, I will divide Sheschem and mete out the value of Succoth. Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine Ephraim also is the strength of mine hand. Judah is my lawgiver. Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe. Philistia triumph thou because of me. Who will bring me into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom? Wilt not thou O God who has cast me off? And thou O God who didst not go out with our armies? Give us help from our troubles; for vain is the help of man. Through God we shall do valiantly; for it is He that shall tread down our enemies.

BRAGADAYJAH 1399 Psalm 59 A Psalm for Help for the Helpless Part II The God of my mercy shall prevent, [meet] me. God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies. Slay them not lest my people forget; scatter them by thy power, and bring them down O Lord our shield. For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them be taken even in their pride, and for cursing and lying which they speak. Consume them in wrath, consume them that they may not be, and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob, unto the ends of the earth. And at evening let them return and let them make a noise like a dog, and go around about the city. Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied. But I will sing of thy power, yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning; for thou hast been my defense and my refuge in the day of my trouble. Unto thee O my strength will I sing; for God is my defence and the God of my mercy.

Monday, August 7, 2017


BRAGADAYJAH 1398 Psalm 59. Help for the Helpless. Deliver me from mine enemies O my God. Defend me from them that rise up against me. Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men. For lo, they lie in wait for my soul. The mighty are gathered against me, not for my transgression or my sin or Lord. They run and prepare themselves without my fault. Awake to help me and behold, Thou, therefore O Lord God of host, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen, Be not merciful to any wicked transgressor. They return at evening, they make a noise like a dog, and go around about the city. Behold they belch out with their mouth, words are in their lips; for when say they doth hear? But thou O Lord shall laugh at them, thou shall have all the heathen in derision. Because of his strength will I wait on thee. For God is my defence.

BRAGADAYJAH 1397 Psalm 58: Psalm of David| A Cry for God’s Vengeance Do ye indeed speak righteousness O congregation? Do you judge uprightly O ye sons of men? Yea in heart ye work, wickedness, ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth. The wicked are estranged from the womb, they go astray as soon as they are born speaking lies. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent, they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth the ear, which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming ever so wisely. Break their teeth O God, in their mouth, break out the great teeth of the young lion O Lord. Let them melt away as waters which run continuously when he bindeth the bow to shoot his arrows; let them be as cut in pieces. As a snail which melteth, let everyone of them pass away. Like the untimely birth of a woman that they may not see the sun. Before your pots can feel the thorn, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living and in his wrath. The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth his vengeance, he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. So that a man shall say, verily there is a reward for the righteous, verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

BRAGADAYJAH 1396 Psalm 57: Trust in God Amid Trouble. Be merciful unto me O God, be merciful unto me; for my soul trusteth in thee, yea in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be past. I will cry unto God Most High, unto God that performeth all things for me. He shall send from heaven and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. God shall send forth His mercy and His truth. My soul is among lions, and I lie even among them that are set on fire. Even the sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword. Be thou exalted O God above the heavens, let thy glory be above all the earth. They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down; they have digged a pit for me, in the midst whereof they have fallen themselves. My heart is fixed O God, my heart is fixed. I will sing and give praise. Awake up my glory, awake, psaltery and harp, I myself will awake early. I will praise thee O Lord among the people, I will sing unto thee among the nations. For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds. Be thou exalted O God above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

BRAGADAYJAH 1395 Psalm 56: A Psalm of David Reliance upon God. Be merciful unto me O God, for man would swallow me up. He fighting daily oppresseth me. My enemies would daily swallow me up, for they be many that fight against me. O thou most high. What time I am afraid I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his name, in God I have put my trust. I will not fear what man can do unto me. Every day they wrest my words, all their thoughts are against me for evil. They gather themselves together, they hide themselves; they make my steps. When they wait for my soul, shall they escape by iniquity? In thine anger cast down the people, O God. Thou telleth my wanderings put thou my tears into thy bottle. Are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall my enemies turn back. This I know for God is for me. In God will I praise his word; in the Lord will I praise his word. In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid, what man can do unto me. Thy vows are upon me O God, I will render praise unto thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death. Wilt thou not deliver my feet from falling that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

BRAGADAYJAH 1394 Psalm 55 A Psalm of David A Complaint against a false Friend. Part II We took sweet counsel together and waked unto the house of God in company. Let death seize upon them and let them go down quick into hell; for wickedness is in their dwellings and among them. As for me I call upon God and the Lord shall save me. Evening, morning and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud; and he shall hear my voice. He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me for many were with me. God shall hear and afflict them even he that abideth of old because they have no changes; therefore, they fear not God. He has put forth his hand against such as be at peace with him, he has broken his covenant. The words of his mouth was smoother than butter; but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil; yet they were drawn swords. Cast thy burdens upon the Lord and he shall sustain thee, He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. But thou O God shall bring them down into the pit of destruction. Bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I shall trust in thee.

BRAGADAYJAH 1393 Psalm 55: A Psalm of David A complaint concerning false friends. Part I. Give ear unto my prayer O God, and hide not thyself from my supplication. Attend unto me and hear me. I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise. because of the voice of the enemy, because of the opposition of the wicked; for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me. My heart is sore pained within me, and the terrors of death are fallen upon me. Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me; and I said, O that I had wings like a dove, for then would I fly away and be at rest. Lo then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. I would hasten my escape from the windy storm, and tempest. Destroy O Lord and divide their tongues; for I have seen violence and strife in the city. Day and night they go about it on the walls thereof; mischief and sorrow also are in the midst of it. Wickedness is in the midst thereof; deceit and guile depart not from her streets, for it was not an enemy that reproached me, then I would have borne it, neither was it he that hated me, that did magnify magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him. But it was thou; a man mine equal, my guide and my acquaintance.

BRAGADAYJAH 1391 Psalm 53: A Psalm of David A Portrait of the godless. The foolish hath said in his heart, there is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity. There is none that doeth good. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there be any that did understand, that did seek God. Everyone of them is gone back, they are altogether become filthy, there is none that doeth good; no not one. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? Who eat up my people as they eat bread, they have not called upon God. There were they in great fear, where no fear was; for God has scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee; thou hast put them to shame because God has despised them. O that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion. When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.

BRAGADAYJAH 1390 Psalm 52: A Psalm of David Judgment on the deceitful Why boasteth thou thyself in mischief O mighty man? The goodness of God endureth continually. The tongue deviseth mischief like a sharp razor working deceitfully. Thou loveth evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Thou loveth all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue. God shall likewise destroy thee forever. He shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place; and root thee out of the land of the living. The righteous also shall see thee, and fear thee and shall laugh at him. Yea this is the man that made not God his strength, but trusteth in the abundance of his riches, and strengtheneth himself in his wickedness. But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God, I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. I will praise thee for ever because thou hast done it, and I will wait on thy name for it is good before thy saints.

BRAGADAYJAH 1389 Psalm 51: A Psalm of David A Psalm of Penitence Part II Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation, and uphold me with thy free Spirit. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners shall be converted unto thee. Deliver me from blood-guiltiness O God thou God of my salvation. And my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. O Lord open thou my lips and my mouth shall show forth thy praise; for thou desireth not sacrifice or I would give it, thou desireth not burnt offerings. The sacrifices of God are a broken heart; a broken and contrite heart O God thou will not despise. Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion; build thou the walls of Jerusalem. Then will thou be pleased with the sacrifice of righteousness; with burnt offering and whole burnt offering. Then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

BRAGADAYJAH 1388 Psalm 51 A Psalm of David A Psalm of Penitence. Part I Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness, according to the multitude of thy tender mercies; blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquities, and cleanse me from me sins. For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only have I sinned and done this evil in thy sight, that thou might be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold I was shapen in iniquity and in sin did my mother conceive me. Behold thou desireth truth in the inward parts and in the hidden part thou shall make me to know wisdom. Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean; wash me and I will be whiter than snow. Make me to hear joy and gladness, that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities. Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me.

BRAGADAYJAH 1387 Psalm 50 A Psalm of Asaph God the mighty Judge: Part II If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is mine and the fullness thereof. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Offer unto God thanksgiving, and pay thy vows unto the Most High, and call upon me in the days of trouble, I will deliver thee and thou shall glorify me; but unto the wicked God says, What has thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou should take my covenant into thy mouth, seeing thou hateth instruction, and cast my words behind thee. When thou hath seen a thief, thou contend with him, and are a partaker with adulterers. Thou giveth thy mouth to evil and thy tongue frames deceit. Thou sitteth and speaketh against thy brother, thou slanders thine own mother’s son. These things have thou done, and I kept silence. Thou thought that I was altogether one such as yourself; but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. Now consider this thou that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver, Whoso offers praise glorifies me, and to him that orders his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.

BRAGADAYJAH 1386 Psalm 50: A Psalm of Asaph. God the Mighty Judge. Part I The mighty God, even the Lord, has spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God has shined. Our God shall come and shall not keep silent. A fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him. He shall call to the heaven from above, and the earth that He may judge the people. Gather my saints together unto me, those who have made a covenant to me by sacrifice. And the heavens shall declare His righteousness, for God is judge Himself. Hear O my people and I will speak, O Israel and I will testify against thee. I am God even thy God. I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifice or thy burnt offering to have been continually before me; I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he-goats out of thy folds. For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills I know all the fowls of the mountains and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

BRAGADAYJAH 1385 Psalm 49 A Psalm for the sons of Korah Theme: Riches cannot Redeem Men Hear this all ye people, give ear all ye inhabitants of the world. Both low and high rich and poor together. My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding. I will incline my ear to a parable. I will open my dark saying upon the harp. Wherefore shall I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my feet shall compass me about. They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches, none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him. For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceases forever. That he should still live forever and not see corruption; for he sees that wise men die. Likewise, the fool and the brutish men perish and leave their wealth to others. Their inward thought is that their houses should continue forever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names; nevertheless, man being in honour abides not; he is like the beast that perish. This their way is their folly; yet their posterity approve their sayings. Like sheep they are laid in the grave, death shall feed on them, and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning. And their beauty shall consume in their graves from their dwellings. But God shall redeem my soul from the power of the grave, for he shall receive me. Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased. For when he dies he shall carry nothing away. His glory shall not descend after him, though while he lived he blessed his soul, and men will praise thee when thou doeth well in thyself. He shall go to the generations of his fathers; they shall never see light. A man that is in honour and understands not, is like the beast that perish.

BRAGADAYJAH 1385 Psalm 48 A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah. Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God. In the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth is mount Zion on the sides of the North the city of the great king. God is known in her palaces for a refuge. For Lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together, They saw it and so they marveled; they they were troubled and so they hasted away. Fear took hold upon them then and pain as a women in travail. Thou breaketh the ships of Tarshish with an east wind, As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the Lord of host; in the city of our God. God will establish it forever. We have thought of thy loving kindness O God in the midst of thy temple. According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth, thy right hand is full of righteousness. Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah, be glad because of thy judgments. Walk about Zion and go round about her; tell the towers thereof. Mark ye well her bulwarks consider her palaces that ye may tell it to the generations following. For this God is our God for ever and ever. He will be our guide even unto death.

BRAGADAYJAH 1384 Psalm 47 A Psalm for the sons of Korah God is Sovereign O clap your hands all ye people, shout unto God with the voice of triumph. For the Lord most high is terrible, He is a great King over all the earth. He shall subdue the people under us, all the nations under our feet. He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom He loved. God is gone up with a shout; the Lord with a shout of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth, sing praise with understanding. God reigns over the heathen; God sits on His throne of His holiness. The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham. For the shield of the earth, belong unto God, He is greatly exalted.

BRAGADAYJAH 1383 Psalm 46 A Song of Korah God is our Refuge and strength God is our refuge and our strength, our very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth be moved, my feet will not be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea, though the waters thereof roar, and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. There is a river the streams whereof shall make glad the city, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved. God shall help her and that right early. The heathens rage, the kingdoms moved, he uttered his voice the earth melted, The Lord of host is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Come behold the works of the Lord, what desolation he has made in the earth. He makes wars to cease unto the end of the earth, he breaks the bow and and cuts the spear in sunder. He burns the chariot in the fire. Be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our refuge.

BRAGADAYJAH 1382 Psalm 45 A Song of Love Part II King’s daughters were among thy honourable women, upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir. Hearken O daughter and consider, and incline thine ear; forgot also thine own people and thy father’s house. So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty; for he is thy Lord and worship thou him. And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift, even the rich among the people shall entreat thy favour. The king’s daughter is all glorious within; her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought unto the king, in raiment of needlework, the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee. With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought, they shall enter into the king’s palace. Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children when thou mayest make princes in all the earth. I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations. Therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

BRAGADAYJAH 1381 Psalm 45: A Song of love. Part I My heart is indicting a good matter, I speak of the things which I have made touching the king; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the children of men, grace is poured into thy lips; therefore, God has blessed thee forever; Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O Most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth, and meekness and righteousness, and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thy arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies, wherefore thy people fall under thee. Thy throne O God is for ever and ever; the scepter of thy right hand is a right sceptre. Thou loveth righteousness, and hateth wickedness, therefore God, thy God, has anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloe and cassia out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad. [ To be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH 1380 Psalm 44: A Prayer for the distressed Part. II Thou selleth thy people for naught, and does not increase thy wealth by their price.Thou maketh us a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us. Thou maketh us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people. My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me. For the voice of him that reproaches and blasphemers by reason of the enemy and the avenger. All this is come upon us, yet have we not forgotten thee; neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant. Our head is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way. Though thou has sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death. If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretch out our hands to a strange god, shall our God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart. Yea, for thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter. Awake, why sleepeth thou? O Lord arise, cast us not off forever. Wherefore hideth thou thy face and forgeteth our affliction and our oppression? For our soul is bowed down to the dust, our belly cleaves unto the earth. Arise for our help and redeem us for thy mercies sake.

BRAGADAYJAH 1379 Psalm 44: A prayer for the distressed For the sons of Korah. We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us what work thou did in their days in the times of old. How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and planted them; how thou didst afflict the people and cast them out. For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them; but thy right hand and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them. Thou art my king, O God, command deliverance for Jacob. Through thee, will we push down our enemies; through thy name will we tread them under that that rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and has put them to shame that rise up against us. In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. But thou hast cast off and put us to shame, and goeth not forth with our armies. Thou make us to turn back from the enemy, and they which hate us spoil for themselves. Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat, and has scattered us among the heathen.

Why dost Thou cast me off? Why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? O send out thy light and thy truth, let them lead me; let them bring me to thy holy hill and to thy tabernacles. Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy, yea, upon the harp will I praise thee O God, my God. Why art thou cast down O my soul, and why art thou disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I shall yet praise him who is the health of my countenance and my God.

Deep calls unto deep, at the noise of of thy waterspouts all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer with the God of my life I will say unto God my rock, “Why has thou forgotten me?” Why go I mourning because of the oppression of my enemy” As with a sword in my bones, my enemies reproach me, “Where is thy God?” Why art thou cast down O my soul, And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

When shall I come and appear before Gd? My tears have been my food and and night, while they continually say to me, where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me; for I have gone with the multitude. I went with them to the house of God. With the voice of joy and praise, with the multitude that kept holiday. Why art thou cast down O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God; for I shall yet praise Him for the help of his countenance.

BRAGADAYJAH 1375 Psalm 41: A Psalm of David Help for the charitable. Blessed is he that considers the poor. The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord will preserve and keep him alive, and he will be blessed upon the earth; and thou will not deliver him unto the hands of his enemies. The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing; thou will make all his bed in his sickness. I said Lord be merciful unto me. Heal my soul for I have sinned against thee. Mine enemies speak evil of me. When shall he die and his name perish? And if he comes to see me, he speaks vanity; his heart gathers iniquity to himself; when he goes about he tells it. All that hate me whisper together against me, against me do they devise my hurt. An evil disease say they, cleaves fast unto him; and now that he lies he rises no more. Yea, my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, who did eat out of my bread has lifted up his heel against me. But thou O Lord be merciful unto me, and raise me up that I may requite them. By this I know that thou favours me, because my enemy does not triumph over me. Thou upholds me in my integrity; and set me before your face for ever. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting, Amen, Amen.

BRAGADAYJAH 1365 Psalm 40: A Psalm of David God’s song in our Mouth. Part II Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord, let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me. For innumerable evils have compassed me about; my iniquities have taken hold on me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head. Therefore my heart fails me. Be pleased O Lord to deliver me, O Lord make haste to help me. Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul to destroy it. Let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish evil against me. Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me aha aha. Let all them that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee; let such as love thy salvation say continually the Lord be magnified. But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinks upon me; thou art my help and my deliverance make no tarrying O my God.

Psalm 40: A Psalm of David
God’s Song in our Mouths. Part I
I waited patiently for the Lord, and he inclined unto me and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of the horrible pit, out of the miry clay and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God. Many shall see it and fear and trust in the Lord. Blessed is that man that makes the Lord his trust, and respects not the proud, nor he that turns aside unto lies. Many, O Lord my God are the wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts towards us. They cannot be counted in order unto thee. If I would declare and speak of them, they are more that can be numbered. Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; my ears has thou opened; burnt offering and sin offering has thou not required, Then said I, Lo, I come; in the volume of the book it is written of me. I declare to do thy will O Lord my God, yea, thy law is written in my heart. I have preached righteousness in the great congregation, yea, I have not refrained my lips O Lord thou knowest it, I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart, I have declared thy faithfulness, and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and and thy truth, from the great congregation.

Psalm 39: A Psalm of David.
Man’s Frailty.
I said, I will take heed of my ways that I sin not with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. I was dumb with silence; I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred. My heart was not within me; while I was musing the fire burnt. Then spake I with my tongue. Lord make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days.what it is, that I may know how frail I am. Behold thou has made my days as a hand's breath, and my age is as nothing before thee. Verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Surely every man walks in a vain show; suely they are disquieted in vain, he heaps up riches and knows not who shall gather them. And now Lord what wait I for? My hope is in thee. Deliver me from all my transgressions, make me not the reproach of the foolish. I was dumb; I opened not my mouth, because thou did it. Remove thy stroke away from me; I am consumed by the blow of thine hand. When thou with rebukes corrects man for iniquity, thou makes his beauty to consume away like a moth. Surely, every man is vanity. Hear my prayer O Lord; give ear unto my cry. Hold not thy peace at my tears; for I am a stranger with thee and a sojourner as all my fathers were. O spare me that I may recover strength before I go hence and be no more.

Psalm 38: A Psalm of David
Godly sorrow for Sin: Part II
My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore, and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me; and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceit all the day long.  But I as a dead man heard not, and I was a dumb man that opened not his mouth. Thus I was as a man that hears not and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee O Lord do I hope; thou wilt hear O Lord my God. For I say, hear me lest otherwise they should rejoice over me when my foot slips, they magnify themselves against me. For I will declare my iniquity, I will be sorry for my sins. But my enemies are lively and they are strong; and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good, are mine adversaries, because I follow the thing that is good. Forsake me not O Lord, O my God be not far from me. Make haste to help O Lord my salvation.

Psalm 38: A Psalm of David
Godly sorrow for sin. Part I
O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath, nor chasten me in thy hot displeasure. For thy arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presses me sore. There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger, neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin. For mine iniquities are gone over my head as a heavy burden; they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of mine foolishness. I am troubled. I am bowed down greatly. I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease; and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken. I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. Lord all my desire is before thee. And my groaning is not hid from thee. My heart pants; my strength fails me. As for the light of mine eyes it also is gone from me.

Psalm 37: A Psalm of David.
Trust in the Lord Part IV
The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.The wicked watches the righteous and seeks to slay him. The Lord shall not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. Wait on the Lord and keep is way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land. When the wicked is cut off thou shall see it. I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away and is not yea I sought him but he could not be found. Mark the perfect man and behold the upright for the end of that man is peace. But the transgressors shall shall be destroyed together; the end of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteousness is of the Lord; he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them; and deliver them; he shall deliver them from the wicked and save them because they trust him.

Psalm 37: A Psalm of David
Trust in the Lord. Part III
Such as be blessed by the Lord, shall inherit the earth. And they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and he delights in his way. Though he falls he shall not be utterly cast down. For the Lord upholds him with his hand. I have been young now am old, yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful and lends and his seed is blessed. Depart from evil and do good, and dwell forevermore. For the Lord loves judgment and forsakes not his saints. They are preserved forever, but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell therein forever. The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom and his tongue speaks of judgment.

Psalm 37: A Psalm of David
Trust in the Lord. Part II
The wicked plots against the just and gnashes upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him for he sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow to cast down the poor and the needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart and their bows shall be broken. A little that the righteous man has is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken; but the Lord upholds the righteous. The Lord knows the days of the righteous, and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs; they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. The wicked borrows and pays not back again. But the righteous show mercy and gives.

Psalm 37: A Psalm of David
Theme: Trust in the Lord Part I
Fret not thyself because of evil doers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and whither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord and do good; so shall thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shall be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord, trust also in him and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently on him. Fret not thyself because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger and forsake wrath; seek not in in way to do evil. For evil doers shall be cut off but they that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while and the wicked shall not be. Yea thou shall diligently consider his place and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

Psalm 36: A Psalm of David
How the wicked contrasts with God’s mercy.
The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God within his eyes; for he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity is found to be hateful. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit; he has left off to be wise and to do that which is good. He devises mischief upon his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good. He abhors not evil. Thy mercy O Lord is in the heavens, and thy faithfulness reaches unto the clouds. The righteous is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep. O Lord thou preserves man and beast. How excellent is thy loving kindness O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shall make them drink of the rivers of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life, in thy sight shall we see light. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee, and thy righteousness to the upright in heart. Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me. There are the workers of iniquity fallen, they are cast down and shall not be able to rise.

Psalm 35: A Psalm of David
David’s prayer for his Enemies. Part III
Yea they opened their mouth wide against me; and say, “Aha, aha, our eyes have seen it.”
This thou hast seen, O Lord; keep not thy silence, O Lord be not far from me. Stir up thyself, and awake, to my judgement even unto my cause, my God and my Lord. Judge me O Lord my God, according to thy righteousness, and let them not rejoice over me. Let them not say in their hearts, “Ah so would we have it.  ”Let them not say, “We have swallowed him up.”  Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at my hurt. Let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me. Let them shout for joy and be glad and favour my righteous cause. Yea, let them say continually, “Let the Lord by magnified which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.” And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.

Psalm 35: A Psalm of David
David’s Prayer against his Enemies Part II
False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things I knew not. They rewarded me evil for good, in the spoiling of my soul. But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth. I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned unto my own bosom. I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother; I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother. But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together, yea, the abjects gathered themselves together, against me, and I knew it not. They did tear me and ceased not. With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth. Lord how long will thou look on? Rescue my soul from their destruction, my darling from the lions. I will give thee thanks in the great congregation. I will praise thee among the people. Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me, nor let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause. For they speak not peace; but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

Psalm 35: A Psalm of David
David’s prayer against his enemies.
Plead my cause O Lord, with them that that strive with me, fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler and stand up for mine help. Draw out also the spear and stop the way against them that persecute me. Say unto my soul I am thy salvation. Let them be confronted and put to shame them that seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt. Let them be as chaff before the wind; let the angel of the Lord chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of the Lord persecute them; for without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit. Which without cause have they digged for my soul. Let destruction come upon him unawares; and let his net that he has hid catch himself into that very destruction. Let him fall; and my soul shall be joyful in the Lord; we shall rejoice in his salvation. All my bones shall say, Lord who is like unto thee, which delivereth the the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

Psalm 34: A Psalm of David
The Lord delivers His own. Part II
Come ye children hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and and pursue it; for the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil. To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken and contrite heart and saveth such as are of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones and not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Psalm 34: A Psalm of David
The Lord delivers His own. Part I
I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord, the humble shall hear thereof and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto Him and were lightened, and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him and delivered them. O taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. O fear the Lord ye His saints, for there is no want to them that fear Him. The young lion do lack and suffer hunger; but they that seek the Lord, shall not want any good thing.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom he has chosen for an inheritance. The Lord looketh from heaven he beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth. He fashioneth their hearts alike, he considereth all their works. There is no king, saved by the multitude of a host, a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. A horse is a vain thing for safety. Neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. Behold the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him. Upon them that hope in his mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine. Our soul waiteth upon the Lord, he is our help and our shield: for our heart shall rejoice in him because we have trusted in his holy name. Let thy mercy O Lord be upon us according as we hope in thee.

PSALM 33: A Psalm of Joy. Part I
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous. For praise is comely for the upright. Praise the Lord with Harp sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song, play skillfully with a loud noise; for the word of the Lord is right. And all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment; the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all the host of them by the breath of his nostrils. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap; he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the Lord. Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him; for he spake and it was done, he commanded and it stood fast. The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to naught; he maketh the devices of the people to none effect. The counsel of the Lord standeth forever; the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

Psalm 32: A Psalm of David
The Blessedness of Forgiveness.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity. And in whose spirit there is not guile. When I kept silence my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me; my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. I acknowledged my sin unto thee and my iniquity have I not hid. I said I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord, and thou forgiveth the iniquity of my sin, for this shall every man that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found. Surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him. Thou art my hiding place, thou shall preserve me from trouble; thou shall compass me about with songs of deliverance; I will instruct thee and teach thee, in the way which thou shall go, I will guide thee with mine eye. Be ye not as the horse or as the mule, which have no understanding, whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle; lest they come near unto thee. Many sorrow will be to the wicked, but he that trust in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, ye righteous, and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.

A Plea for God’s Protection Part II
I have heard the slander of many; fear was on every side; while they took counsel together against me; they devised to take away my life. But I trusted in thee O Lord. I said, thou art my God. My times are in thy hand, deliver me from the hand of of mine enemies and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me for thy mercies sake. Let me not be ashamed O Lord for for I have called upon thee, let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. Let the lying lips be put to silence, which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee, which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men. Thou shall hide them in the the secret of thy presence; from the pride of man. Thou shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. Blessed be the Lord for he has shown me his marvelous kindness in a strong city. For I said in my haste I am cut off from before thine eyes, nevertheless, thou heard the voice of of my supplications, when I cried unto thee. O Love the Lord all ye his saints; for the Lord preserves the faithful and patiently reward the proud doer. Be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart all ye that hope in the Lord.

Deliver me speedily, be thou my strong rock; for a house of defence to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress. Therefore for thy name’s sake lead me and guide me. Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me; for thou art my strength. Into thine hand I commit my spirit. Thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth. I have hated them that regard lying vanities, but I trust in the Lord. I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy, for thou hast considered my trouble, thou hast known my soul in adversities, and hast not shut me up in the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room. Have mercy upon me Lord, for I am in trouble; mine eye is consumed with grief; yea my soul and my belly. For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing. My strength faileth because of mine iniquity and my bones are consumed. I was a reproach among all mine enemies; but especially among my neighbors, and a fear of mine acquaintances. They that did see me without fled from me. I am forgotten as a dead man out fo mind; I am like a broken vessel.

O Lord thou hast brought up my soul from the grave; thou hast kept me alive that I should not go down to the pit. Sing unto the Lord O ye saints, of his, and give thanks unto the remembrance of his holiness. For his anger endureth for a moment, in his favor is life, weeping may endure for a night; but joy comes in the morning. And in my prophesy I said, I shall never by moved. Lord by thy favor thou has made my mountain to stand strong, thou didst hide thy face and and I was troubled. I cried to thee O Lord, and unto thee do I make supplication. What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? Shall it declare thy truth? Hear O Lord and have mercy upon me. Lord be thou my helper. Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; thou hast put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness. To the end that my glory will sing praise to thee and not be silent, O Lord my God I will give praise unto thee forever.

God’s Power
Give unto the Lord O ye mighty; give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due his name. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. The voice of the Lord is upon the waters. The God of glory thunders. The Lord is upon many waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; yea the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon. He makes them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire; the voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord makes the hinds to calve, and discovers the forest; and in his temple everyone speaks of His glory. The Lord sits upon the flood, yea the Lord sits King forever. The Lord gives strength unto his people, the Lord will bless his people with peace.

Psalm 28: A Psalm of David.
Unto thee will I cry O Lord my rock. Be not silent to me. lest if thou be silent to me I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee. When I lift my hands towards thy holy oracle. Draw me not away with the wicked and with the workers of iniquity which speak peace to their neighbors, but mischief in their hearts. Give them according to their deeds and according to the wickedness of their endeavours; give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert, because they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operations of his hands, he shall destroy them and not build them up. Blessed be the Lord because he has heard the voice of my supplications. The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in him; and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song will I praise him.The Lord is their strength and he is the saving strength of his anointed. Save thy people and bless thine inheritance; feed them also and lift them up forever.

Psalm 27 Part II
A Psalm of David.
Hear O Lord, when I cry with my voice. Have mercy on me and answer me. When thou said, “Seek ye my face,” my heart said unto me, thy face Lord will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger. Thou hast been my help; leave me not nor forsake me O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up. Teach me thy way O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. Deliver me not over unto the will of my enemies; for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord, be of good courage; and he will strengthen thy heart; wait I say, on the Lord.

Psalm 27: A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my light and my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked even my enemies and my foes came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war may rise against me, in this shall I be confident. One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me. In his pavilion in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me. Therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy. I will sing, yea, I will sing praise unto the Lord.

Psalm 25: A Psalm of David
Unto thee O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee. Let me not be ashamed. Let not my enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed. Let them be ashamed which transgress without cause. Shew me thy ways O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation. On thee do I wait all the the day. Remember O Lord thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindness, for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions. According to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness sake O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord, therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgement, and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy name’s sake O Lord, pardon mine iniquity for it is great. What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. The soul shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall inherit the earth. The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him, and he shall show them his covenant. Mine eyes are ever towards the Lord, for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. Turn thee unto me and have mercy, unto me for I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged, O bring thou me out of my distress. Look upon my affliction and my pain, and forgive all my sins. Consider my enemies for they are many. And they hate me with cruel hatred. O keep my soul and deliver me. Let me not be ashamed for I put my trust in thee. Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, for I wait on thee. Redeem Israel O God out of all his troubles.

Psalm 24: A Psalm of David
Ascension of the King of Glory
The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. The world and they that dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend unto the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in the holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the Lord of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek Him; that seek thy face O Jacob. Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lifted up ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads O ye gates, even lift them up ye everlasting doors; and the king of glory shall come in. Who is the King of glory? The Lord of host He is the king of glory.

Psalm 23: A Psalm of David.
The Divine Shepherd.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul, He leads me in the path of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk though the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Thou anoints my head with oil and my cup ruins over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 22: A Psalm of David
The Suffering Saviour Part II
Deliver my soul from the sword, my darling from the power of the dog. Save me from the lion’s mouth, for thou has heard me from the horns of the unicorns. I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. Ye that fear the LORD praise him, all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel. For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted. Neither has he hid his face from him. But when he cried unto him he heard. My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation. I will pay my vows before them that fear him. The meek shall eat and be satisfied, they will praise the Lord that seek him; your heart will live forever. All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD; and all the kindred of the nations shall worship before thee; for the kingdoms is the Lord’s, and he is the governor among the nations. All they that be fat upon the earth, shall eat and worship; all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him. And none can keep alive his own soul. A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted unto the Lord for a generation. They shall come and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born that he has done this.
