BRAGADAYJAH 1526

BRAGADAYJAH 1526 Psalm 132. Verses 11-18 The Lord has sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it. Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. If thy children shall keep my commandment and my testimony that I shall teach them, thy children also shall sit upon thy throne for evermore; for the Lord has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is my rest forever; here will I dwell for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision. I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe her priest with salvation, and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. There will I make the horn of David to bud; I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. His enemies will I clothe with shame; but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

BRAGADAYJAH 1525

BRAGADAYJAH 1525 Psalm 132 A Song of Degrees Lord remember David and all his afflictions, how he swore unto the Lord and vowed unto the Mighty God of Jacob. Surely I would not come into the the tabernacle of thine house, nor go up into my bed: I will not give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, until I find out a place for my Lord, a habitation to the mighty God of Jacob. Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah; we found it in the fields of the wood. We will go into his tabernacle; we will worship at his footstool. Arise, O Lord, into thy rest, thou and the ark of thy strength. Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let thy Saints shouts for joy. For thy servant David’s sake, turn not away the face of thine anointed. [ To be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH 1524 Psalm 131 A Song of David A Song of Degrees Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. Surely, I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother; my soul is even as a weaned child. Let Israel hope in the Lord from henceforth and forever.

BRAGADAYJAH 1523

BRAGADAYJAH 1523 Psalm 130 A Song of Degrees Out of the depth have I cried unto the Lord. Lord hear my voice; let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If thou Lord shouldst mark iniquity, O Lord, who shall stand? but there is forgiveness with thee that thou mayest be feared. I wait for the Lord; my soul doth wait and in His word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they who watch for the morning, I say, more than any who watch for the morning, Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy. And with Him there is plenteous redemption; and He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

BRAGADAYJAH 1522

BRAGADAYJAH 1522 Psalm 129 A Song of Degrees Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth. May Israel now say, many a time have they afflicted me from my youth; yet they have not prevailed against me. The plowers plowed upon my back; they made long their furrows. The Lord is righteous, He has cut aside the cords of the wicked. Let them all be confounded and turn back that hate Zion. Let them be as the grass upon the housetop which withereth afore it growth up, wherewith the mower filleth not his hand, nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom, neither do they which go by say, “The blessing of the Lord be upon you, we blessed you in the name of the Lord.”

BRAGADAYJAH 1521 Psalm 128 A Song of Degrees Blessed is everyone that feareth the Lord, that walketh in His ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hand; happy shall thou be and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be a fruitful vine at the sides of thy house, thy children like olive plants round about the table. Behold thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord. The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion, and thou shall see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. Yea, thou shall see thy children’s children and peace upon Israel.

BRAGADAYJAH 1520

BRAGADAYJAH 1520 Psalm 127 A Song of Degrees for Solomon Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late to eat the bread of sorrow, for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Lo children are an heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb his delight. As arrows are in the hands of a mighty man, so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemy in the gate.

BRAGADAYJAH 1519

BRAGADAYJAH 1519 Psalm 126 A Song of Degrees When the Lord turneth again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing; then said they among the heathen, the Lord has done great things for them; the Lord has done great things for us, whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity O Lord as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

BRAGADAYJAH 1518 Psalm 125 A Song of Degrees. They that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion which cannot be removed but abideth for ever. As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is around His people from henceforth even for ever; for the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the righteous, lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity. Do good O Lord unto those that be good, and to them who are upright in their hearts. As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the Lord shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity; but peace shall be upon Israel.

BRAGADAYJAH 1517 Psalm 124. A Song of Degrees A Psalm of David If it had not been the Lord, who was on our side, now may Israel say, if it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us; then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us; then the waters had overwhelmed us; the stream had gone over our soul; then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

BRAGADADYJAH 1516 Psalm 123. Looking for God’s Mercy A Song of Degrees Unto thee lift I up my eyes, O thou that dwelleth in the heavens. Behold as the eyes of the servants look unto the hands of their master, and as the eye of the maiden look unto the hand of her mistress, so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that He has mercy upon us. Have mercy upon us O Lord, have mercy on us for we are exceedingly filled with contempt. Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those who are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.

The Lord is thy keeper the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil, He shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even for evermore.

What shall be given unto thee? Or what shall be done unto thee thou false tongue? Sharp arrows of the mighty with coals of Jupiter. Woe is me that I sojourn in Meseech, that I dwelt in the tents of Kedar. My soul has long dwelt with him that hateth peace. I am for peace; but when I speak they are for war.

BRAGADAYJAH 1488 Psalm 115 To God alone Be the Glory Not unto us O Lord, not unto us. But unto thy name give glory; for thy mercy and thy truth’s sake. Wherefore should the heathen say, where is their God? But our God is in the heavens: He has done whatsoever He pleased. Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not, eyes have they but they see not. They have ears but they hear not, noses they have but they smell not. They have hands but they handle not, feet have they but they walk not, neither speak they through their throat. They that make them are like unto them, so is everyone that trusteth in them. O Israel, trust thou in the Lord, He is their help and their shield. O house of Aaron trust in the Lord, He is their help and their shield. He that fear the Lord trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield The Lord has been mindful of us, He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron. He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great. The Lord shall increase more and more, you and your children. Ye are blessed of the Lord which made heaven and earth. The heaven, even the heavens are the Lord’s; but the earth hath He given to the children of men. The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence; but we will bless the Lord from this time forth for evermore. Praise the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1487 Psalm 114 In Praise of the Exodus When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language, Judah was the sanctuary and Israel was the dominion.The sea saw it and fled, Jordon was driven back. The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs. What ailed thee O thou sea that thou fledeth, thou Jordon was driven back? Ye mountains that ye skipped like rams, and ye little hills like lambs? Tremble thou earth at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob which turneth the rock into a standing water, the flint into a mountain of waters.

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the Lord’s name is to be prised. The Lord is high above all nations and His glory above the heavens. Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high, who humbleth Himself to behold the things that are in heaven and in the earth? He raiseth up the poor out of the dust and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill that He may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. He maketh the barren woman to keep house and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1483 Psalm 110: A Psalm of David Psalm of the King-Priest The LORD said unto my Lord. Sit thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion; rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power; in the beatitudes of holiness, from the womb of the morning, thou hast the dew of thine youth. The Lord has sworn and will not repent. Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of His wrath, He shall judge among the heathen. He shall fill the places with dead bodies; He shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way, therefore, shall He lift up the head.

BRAGADAYJAH 1482

BRAGADAYJAH 1482 Psalm 109 Psalm of David A cry for vengeance and judgment Part II Because he remembered not to show mercy but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart, as he loved cursing as like with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and as oil into his bones. Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and as a girdle wherewith he is girdled continually. Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the Lord, and of them that speak evil against my soul, but do thou for me O God, the Lord for thy name’s sake; because thy mercy is good deliver thou me. For I am poor and needy and my heart is wounded within me. I am gone like the shadow when it declineth; I am tossed up and down as the locusts. My knees are weak through fasting and my flesh faileth of fatness. I became also a reproach also unto them. When they look upon me they shake their heads. Help my O Lord my God; O save me according to thy mercy, that they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, Lord has done it. Let them curse; but bless thou. When they arise let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice. Let my adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion as with a mantle. I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth, yea, I will praise him among the multitude; for He shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from them that condemn his soul.

BRAGADAYJAY 1481 Psalm 109: A Psalm of David. Part I A Cry for vengeance and Judgment Hold not thy peace O God of my praise; for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me. They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They compassed me about also with words of hatred and fought against me without cause. For my love they are my adversaries, but I gave them unto prayer and they have rewarded me evil for good and hatred for my love. Set thou a wicked man over him and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged let him be condemned, and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds and beg and let them seek their bread also out of desolate places. Let the extortioner catch all that he has, and let the stranger spoil his labour. Let there be none to extend mercy unto him neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off in the generation following yea. Let their name be blotted out. Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord, and let not the iniquity of his mother be blotted out. Let them be before the Lord continually that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth. [To be continued]

I will praise thee O Lord among the people. and I will sing praise unto thee among the nations; for thy mercy is great among the heavens, and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds. Be thou exalted O God above all the earth, that thy beloved may be delivered. Save with thy right hand and answer me. God hath spoken in His holiness I will rejoice. I will divide Shechem and mete out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine; Ephraim alo is the strength of my head. Judah is my law-giver. Moab is my washpot, over Edom will I cast out my shoe, over Philitia will I triumph. 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 wilt not thou O God who hath go forth with our hosts? Give us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man. Through God we shall do valiantly, for He shall tread down our enemies.

BRAGADAHYAH 1479

BRAGADAYJAH 1479 Psalm 107 Part III God’s provision for the Redeemed Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people, and praise Him in the assembly of the elders. He turneth rivers into a wilderness and the watersprings into dry ground. A fruitful land into barrenness; for the wickedness of them that dwell therein. He turneth the wilderness into standing water, and dry ground into watersprings, and there He maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation, and sow the seeds and plant vineyards which may yield fruit of increase. He blesseth them also so that they are multiplied greatly and suffereth not their cattle to decrease. Again they are diminished and brought low through oppression affliction and sorrow. He poureth contempt upon princes and cuaseth them to wonder in the wilderness where there is no way. Yet setteth He the poor on high from affliction and maketh him families like a flock. The righteous shall see it and rejoice, and all iniquity shall stop her mouth. Whoso is wise and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1478

BRAGADAYJAH 1478 Psalm 107 Part II For He has broken the gates of brass, and the bars of iron in sunder. Fools because of their transgression and because of their iniquity are afflicted. Their soul abhoreth all manner of meat, and they draw near unto the gates of death. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble and He saveth them out of their distresses. He sent His Word and healed them and delivered them from all their destructions. O that men would praise the Lord for His goodness and for His wonderful work to the children of men. And let them sacrifice the sacrifice of thanksgiving and declare His works with rejoicing. They that go down into the sea in ships, that do business in great waters, these are the works of the Lord, and his wonder as in the deep; for He commandeth and raised the stormy wind which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven; they go down again to the depth; their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro and stagger like a drunken man and are at their wits end. Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble and He bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet He bringeth them unto their desire haven. O that men should praise the Lord for His goodness and His wponderful works to the children of men!

Let the redeemed of the Lord say, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy, and gathered them out of the lands from the East and from the West, from the North and from the South.They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in; hungry and thirsty their soul cried in them.Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them out of their distress, and He led them forth by the right way that they may go to a city of habitation. O that man should praise the Lord for his goodness and for His wonderful works to the children of men. For He satifieth the longing soul and filleth the hungrey soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron, because they rebelled against the word of God, and contemned the counsel of the most high. Therefore He brought down their heart with labour; they fell down and there was none to help. Then they cried unto the Lord, in their trouble and He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. O that men should praise the Lord for His goodness and for his wonderful works to the children of men.

BRAGADAYJAH 1476

BRAGADAYJAH 1476 Psalm 106 Part IV Confession of Israel’s Unfaithfulness. Thus, they defiled with their own works, and went awhoring with their own inventions. Therefore, was the wrath of God kindles aginst His people insomuch that He abhorred His own inheritance. And he gave them into the hand of the heathen. And they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked Him with their counsel and were brought low for their iniquity. Nevertheless, He regarded their affliction when He heard their cry; and He remembered for them His covenant, and He repented according to the multitude of His mercies. He made them also to be pitied of all them that carried them captives. Save us O Lord our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name and to triumph in thy praise. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting. And let all the people say, Amen I praise ye the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1475

BRAGADAYJAH 1475 Psalm 106. Part III Confession of Israel’s Unfaithfulness. Therefore He[The Lord] lifted up His hand against them to overthrow them in the wilderness. To overthrow their seed also among the nations and to scatter them in the lands. They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor and ate the sacrifices of the dead. Thus they provoked Him to anger with their inventions and the plague broke upon them. Then stood up Phinehas and executed judgment and so the plague was stayed. And that was counted unto him for righgeousness unto all generations for evermore. They angered Him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes, because they reproved his spirit, so that he spoke unadvisedly with his lips. They did not destroy the nations concerning whom the Lord commanded them, but were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works; and they served their idols which were a snare unto them. Yea they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, and shed innocent blood even the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood.

BRAGADAYJAH 1475

BRAGADAYJAH 1475 Psalm 106 Part II Confession of Israel’s unfaithfulness They soon forgot His works, they waited not for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tempted God in the desert. And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul. They envied Moses also in the camp and Aaron the saint of the Lord. The earth opened and swalled up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram; and a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. They made a calf in Horeb and worshipped the molten image. Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. They forgot God their Saviour which had done great things in Egypt. Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea. Therefore, He said that He would destroy them had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach to turn away His wrath lest He should destroy them. Yea they despised the pleasant land; they believed not His word, but murmered in their hearts and hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1473

BRAGADAYJAH 1473 Psalm 106 Part I Confession of Israel’s Unfaithfulness Praise ye the Lord, O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can show forth all His praise? Blessed are they that keep judgment and he that doeth righteousness at all times. Remember me O Lord with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people. O visit me with thy salvation, that I may see the good of the chosen; that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation; that I may glory in thine inheritance. We have sinned with out fathers, we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedly. Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked Him at the sea, even at the Red sea. Nevertheless, He saved them for His name’s sake, that He might make His mighty power to be known. He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up, so He led them through the depths as through the wilderness. And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them; and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. And the waters covered their enemies, there was not one of them left. Then believed they His words, they sang His name.

BRAGADAYJAH 1472 Psalm 105 Part III God’s faithfulness to Israel He [God] spake and there came divers sorts of flies and lice in all their coasts. He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land. He smote their vines also and their fig trees and broke the trees of their coasts He spake and the locusts came, and caterpillars and that without number; and did eat up all the herbs of their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. He smote also all the first-born of their land, the chief of all their strength. He brought them forth also with silver and gold, and there was not one feeble person among their tribes. Egypt was glad when they departed; for the fear of them fell upon them. He spread a cloud for covering, and fire to give light in the night. The people asked and He brought quails and satisfied them with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river. For He remembered His holy promises and Abraham His servant. And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness; and gave them the lands of the heathen and they inherited the labour of the people, that they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws. Praise ye the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1471

BRAGADAYJAH 1471 Psalm 105 Part II God’s faithfulness to Israel. [The Lord said] Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. Moreover He called for a famine upon the land, He broke the whole staff of bread. He sent a man before them even Joseph who was sold for a servant; whose feet they hurt with fetters, he was laid in iron,until the time that His word came. The word of the Lord tried him, Their king sent and loosed him, even the ruler of the people sent and let him go free. He made him lord of his home, and ruler of all his substance. To bind his prince at his pleasure and teach the Senators wisdom. Israel also came into Egypt and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham, and he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies. He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtley with His servants. He sent Moses His servant and Aaron whom He had chosen. They showed His signs among them and wonders in the land of Ham. He sent darkness and made it dark and they rebelled not against His word. He turned their waters into blood and slew their fish. Their land brought forth frog in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

Seek the Lord and His strength, seek His face evermore. Remember His marvelous works that He has done, His wonders and the judgments of His mouth. O ye seed of Abraham His servants, ye seed of Jacob His chosen, He is the Lord our God, His judgements are in all the earth. He has remembered His covenants forever. The word which he commanded to a thousand generations, which covenant He made with Abraham, and His oath unto Isaac. and confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law; and to Israel for an everlasting covenant saying: Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan the lot of your inheritance. When they were but a few men in number, yea very few and strangers in it. When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people. He sufferened no man to do them wrong yea He reproved kings for their sake. [ To be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH 1469

BRAGADAYJAH 1469 Psalm 104 Part II Praise to the God of Creation. He[God], appointed the moon for seasons, the sun knoweth his going down. Thou maketh darkness and it is night, wherein all the beasts of the field do creep forth. The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God. The sun arises, they gather themselves together and lay them down in their dens. Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. O Lord, how manifold are thy works? In wisdom has thou made them all; the earth is full of thy riches. So is the great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. There go the ships, there is that leviathan whom thou has made to play therein. These wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them their meat in due season; that thou givest them; they gather, thou openeth thy hand, they are filled with good. Thou hideth thy face, they are troubled, thou taketh away their breath, they die and retun to the dust. Thou sendeth forth thy spirit, they are created and thou renewest the face of the earth. The glory of the Lord shall endure forever, the Lord shsll rejoice in His works. He looketh on the earth and it trembleth, He toucheth the hills and they smoke. I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live, I will sing praise to my God as long as I have my being. My meditation of Him shall be sweet, I will be glad in the Lord. Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord O my soul, Praise ye the Lord.

BRAGADAYJAH 1468 Psalm 104 Prayer to the God of Creation. Bless the Lord, O my soul, O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who covereth thyself with light as with a garment; who stretched out the heaven like a curtain. Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters; who maketh the clouds His chariot; who walketh upon the wings of the wind; who maketh His angels spirits; His ministers a flaming fire; who laid the foundation of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever. Thou covereth it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hastened away. They go up by the mountains, they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them. Thou hast set a bound which they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth. He sendeth the springs into the valleys which run among the hills. They give drink to every beast of the field. The wild asses quench their thirst. By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation which sing among the branches. He watereth the hills from His chambers, the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He cuaseth the grass to grow for the cattle, the herb for the service of man, that he may bring forth food out of the earth. And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine. And bread which strengtheneth man’s heart. The trees of the Lord are full of sap, the cedars of Lebanon which He has planted where the birds make their nests. As for the stork the fir trees are her house. The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats, and the rocks for the conies.[the badgers]

BRAGADAYJAH 1467

BRAGADAYJAH 1467. Psalm 103. A Psalm of David. A Psalm of unmixed Praise Part II. As far as the East is from the West, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pittieth his children, so the Lord pittieth them that fear Him. For He knoweth our frame, He remembereth that we are dust. As for man his days are like grass; as a flower of the field so he flourishest; for the wind passeth over it and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more; but the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting, upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant and to them that remember His commandments to do them. The Lord has prepared His throne in the heavens and his kindom ruleth over all. Bless the Lord ye His angels that excel in strength that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word. Bless ye the Lord all ye His hosts ye minister of His that do His pleasure. Bless the Lord all his works in all places of His dominiuion: bless the Lord O my soul.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benfits. Who forgetteth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction, who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies. Who satifieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. He made known His ways unto Moses, His acts unto the children of Israel. The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide, neither will He keep His anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor reward us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy to them that fear Him.

BRAGADAYJAH 1465

BRAGADAYJAH 1465 Psalm 102 A Plea to the unchanging God. Part II This shall be written for thee and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord; for He hath looked down from the height of His sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those who are appointed to death; to declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem. When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord, He weakened my strength in the way; He shortened my days. I said O Lord God, take me not away in the midst of my days; thy years are throughout all generations. Of old hath thou laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish; but thou shall endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shall thou change them and they shall be changed. But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end. The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.

BRAGADAYAH 1464 Psalm 102: A Plea to the unchanging God Hear my prayer O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee. Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble. Incline thine ear unto me in the day when I call answer me speedily; for my days are consumed like smoke and my bones are burned as a hearth. My heart is smitten and whithered like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread. By reason of the voice of my groanings, my bone cleaves to my skin. I am like a pelican of the wilderness. I am like an owl of the desert. I watch and I am like a sparrow alone on the house top. My enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me. For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping, because of thine indignation and thy wrath; for thou hast lifted me up and cast me down. My days are like a shadow that declineth and I am whithered like grass. But thou O Lord shall endure forever, and thy remembrance to all generations. Thou shall arise and have mercy upon Zion, for the time to favour her, the set time, is come; for thy servants take pleasure in her stones and favour the dust thereof. So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory. When the Lord shall build up Zion, He shall appear in his glory. He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

O when will thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes, I hate the work of them that turn aside. It shall not cleave to me. A froward heart shall depart from me, I will not know a wicked person. Whosoever privily slandereth his neighbor him will I cut off. Him that hath a high look and a proud heart will I not suffer. My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land that they may dwell with me. He that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house. He that telleth lies shall not tarry within my sight. I will early destroy all the wicked of the land, that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the Lord.

The king’s strength also loveth judgment, thou dost establish equity, thou executeth judgment and righteousness in Jacob. Exalt ye the Lord our God and worship at His footstool; for He is holy. Moses and Aaron among His priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord and He answered them, He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar, they kept His testimonies and His ordinances that He gave them. Thou answeredst them O Lord our God, thou wast a God that forgaveth them, though thou took vengeance on their inventions. Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy hill, for the Lord our God is holy.

BRAGADAYJAH 1460

BRAGADAYJAH 1460 Psalm 98: A Psalm of Praise to the Lord. O sing unto the Lord a new song, for He hath done marvelous things. His right hand and his holy arm hath gotten Him the victory. The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness has He openly shown in the sight of the heathen. He has remembered His mercy and His truth toward the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord all the earth, make a loud noise, and rejoice and sing praise. Sing unto the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the voice of Psalm. With trumpets and sounds of the cornet; make a joyful noise before the Lord and King. Let the sea roar and the fulness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein. Let the flood clap their hands; let the hills be joyfull together, before the Lord; for He cometh to judge the earth, with righteousness shall He judge the world and the people with equity.

BRAGADAYJAH 1459

BRAGADAYJAH 1459. Psalm 97: The Power of the righteous Lord. The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. Clouds and darkness are all about Him. Righteousness and judgment are the habitations of His throne. A fire goeth before Him, and burneth the enemies round about. His lightenings enlighgened the world; the earth saw and trembled.The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord; at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens declare His righteousness and all the people see his glory. Confounded He all they that served graven images, that boast themselves of idols; worship Him all ye gods. Zion heard and was glad, and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgment O Lord. For thou Lord art high above all the earth, thou art exalted far above all gods Ye that love the Lord hate all evil. He perceiveth the soul of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hands of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord ye righteous and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.

Sing unto the Lord, bless His name, show forth His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the heathen, His wonders among all people. For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised. He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Honour and majesty are before Him, strength and beauty in His sanctuary. Give unto the Lord O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the Lord glory and strength. Give unto the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering and come into His courts. O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Fear before him all the earth.Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth, the earth also shall be established that it shall not be moved. He shall judge the earth righteously. Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad. Let the sea roar and the fulness thereof. Let the field be joyful and all that is therein; then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice before the Lord; for He cometh; for He cometh to judge the world with righteousness and the people wittrh His truth.

BRAGADAYJAH Psalm 95: Exhortation to Worship O come, let us sing unto the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto Him with Psalms; for the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In His hands a deep places of the earth, the strength of the hills is His also. The sea is His and He made it and His hands prepared the dry land. O come let us worship and fall fdown, and kneel before the Lord our maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today if ye will hear His voice, harden not your heart, as in the provocation as in the day of temptation in the wilderness, when your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work. Forty years long was I grieved with this generation and said, “It is a people that do err in their heart and they have not known my ways. Unto whom I swore in my wrath, that they should not enter into my rest.

BRAGADAYJAH 1456

BRAGADAYJAH 1456 Psalm Vengeance belongs to God Part II Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest O Lord and teachest him out of the law. That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked. For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance But judgment will return unto righteousness and all the upright in heart shall follow it. Who will rise up for me against the evil doers, or who shall stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the Lord had been my help my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said my fool slippeth, thy mercy O Lord held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me, thy comforts delight my soul. Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. But the Lord is my defence and my God is the rock of my refuge. And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea the Lord our God shall cut them off.

Lift up thyself thou judge of the earth, render a reward to the proud, Lord how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? How long shall they utter and speak hard things? And all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? They break in pieces thy people, O Lord and afflict thine heritage. They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless Yet they say the Lord shall not see. Neither shall the God of Jacob regard it. Underastand ye brutish among the people and ye fools when will ye be wise? He that planted the ear shall he not hear? He that formed the eye shall he not see? He that chastiseth the heathen shall not he correct? He that teacheth man knowledge shall he not know? The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man that they are vanity. [ To be continued ]

BRAGADAYJAH 1452

BRAGADAYJAH 1453 Psalm 92. A Psalm for the Sabbath Day The Propriety of Praise. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High. To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night. Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery, upon the harp with a solemn sound. For thou Lord hast made me glad, through thy work. I will triumph in the works of thy hand. O Lord how great are thy works! And thy thoughts are very deep. A brutish man knoweth not, neither doth a fool understands this. When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish, it is that they may be destroyed forever. But thou Lord, art Most High forevermore. For lo, thine enemies O Lord, lo thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered; but my horn shall thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn. I shall be anointed with fresh oil. My eye also shall see my desire upon mine enemies, and mine ear shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me. The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree; he shall grow like the cedar in Lebanon.Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age. They shall be fat and flourishing, to show that the Lord is upright; He is my rock and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

BRAGADAYJAH 1452 Psalm 91 The Secret place of Security. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in him will I trust. Surely, He shall deliver thee, from the snare of the fowler and from the noisesome pestilence; He shall cover thee with His feathers and under His wings shall thou trust; His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shall not be afraid for the terror by night nor for the arrow that flieth by day, nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness nor for the destruction that wasteth at noon day. A thousand shall fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shall thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge even the most high thy habitation, there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands lest thou dash thy feet against a stone, Thou shall tread upon the lion and adder the young lion and the dragon shall thou trample under feet. Because he has set his love upon me, therefore wil I deliver him. I will set him on high because he has known my name. He shall call upon me and I will answer him; I will be with him in trounle. I will deliver him and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.

BRAGADAYJAH 1451 Psalm 90 a Psalm of Moses The Eternal God and mortal man Part II For all our days are passed away in thy wrath we spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are three score years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off and we fly away. Who knows the power of thine anger? Even according to thy fear so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Return O Lord how long? And let it repent thee concerning thy servants. O satisfy us early with thy mercy, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the days wherein thou have afflicted us and the years wherein we have seen evil. Let thy work appear unto thy servants and thy glory unto their children; and let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us and establish thou the work of our hands upon us, yea the work of our hands establish thou it.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting thou art God. Thou turnest man to destruction and sayest, return ye children of men; for a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. Thou carriest them away as with a flood they are as a asleep; in the morning they are like grass which growth up. In the morning it flourisheth and growth up in the evening it is cut down and withereth. For we are consumed by thy anger and by thy wrath are we troubled. Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance. [To be continued ]

BRAGADAYJAH 1449 Psalm 89. A Psalm of the Davidic Covenant Part IV Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant; thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground. Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin. All that pass by the way, spoil him; he is a reproach to his neigbours. Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries, thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice. Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle. Thou hast made his glory to cease and cast his throne down to the ground. The days of his youth hast thou shortened; thou hast covered him with shame. How long Lord, will thou hide thyself for ever? Shall thy wrath burn like fire? Remember how short my time is, wherefore hast thou made all men in vain? What man is he that liveth and shall not see death? Shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Lord where are thy former lovingkindness which thou sweareth unto david in thy truth? Remember Lord, the reproach of thy servant. How do I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people, wherewith my enemies have reproached, wherein they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed. Blessed be the Lord for evermore, Amen and Amen.

His seed also will I make to endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven. If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgment, if they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments, then will I visit their transgressions, with the rod and their iniquities with stripes. Netherless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will not break nor alter the things that I have spoken out of my lips. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as his sun before me. It shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. But thou hast cast off and abhorred; thou hast been wroth with thine anointed. [ To be continued ]

Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound, they shall walk O Lord in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day; and in thine righteousness shall they be exalted. For the Lord is our defence and the holy one of Israel is our King. Then thou speakest in visions to the holy one, and sadst I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people. I have found David my servant with my holy one have I anointed him, with whom my hand shall be established. My arm also shall strengthen him. The enemy shall not exact upon him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him; but my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him, and in my name shall his horn be exalted. I shall set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father my God, and the rock of my salvation. Also I will make him my firstborn higher than the kings of the earth. [To be continued ]

I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant. Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations; and the heavens shall praise thy wonders O Lord, thy faithfulness in the congregation of the saints. For who in heaven can be compared unto the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty can be compared unto the Lord? God is greatly to be feared, in the assembly of the saints and to be had in reverence to all them that are about him. O Lord God of hosts, who is as strong Lord, like unto thee? Or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Thou ruleth the raging of the sea, when the waves thereof arise thou stilleth them. Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain, thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm. The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine, as for the world and the fullness thereof thou hast founded them. The North and the South thou hast created them, Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name. Thou hast a mighty arm; strong is thy hand and high is thy right hand. [To be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH1445 Psalm 88 A Psalm for the sons of Korah Lament over affliction. O Lord God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee. Let my prayer come before thee. Incline thine ear unto my cry; for my soul is full of trouble, and my life draweth nigh unto the grave. I am counted with them that go down into the pit. I am as a man that has no strength, free among the dead like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou remembereth no more, and they are cut off from thine hand. Thou had laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness in the deeps; thy wrath liest hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Thou hast put away my acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them. I am shut up and I cannot come forth. Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction. Lord I have called daily upon thee; I have stretched out my hand unto thee. Wilt thou show wonders to the dead?Shall the dead arise and praise thee? Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? Or thy faithfulness in destruction? Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? And thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness? But unto thee have I cried O Lord, and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee. Lord, why casteth thou off my soul? Why hideth thou thy face from me? I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up, while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted. Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off. They came round about me daily; like water they compassed me about together. Lover and friend has thou put away from me, and my acquaintances into darkness.

Glorious things are spoken of thee O city of God. I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon; to them that know me; Behold Philistia and Tyre, with Ethiopia, this man was born there. And of Zion it shall be said this, and this man was born in her. And the highest himself shall establish her The Lord shall count when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. As well the singers as the players on instruments, shall be there all my springs are in thee.

O thou my God save thy servant; that truseth in thee. Be merciful unto me O Lord, for I cry unto thee daily. Rejoice the soul of thy servant; for unto thee O Lord do I lift up my soul. For thou Lord art good and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee. Give ear O Lord unto my prayer and attend unto the voice of my supplications. In the day of my trounle I will call upon thee for thou wilt answer me. Among the gods there is none like unto thee O Lord neither are there any works like unto thy works. All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee O Lord and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great and doeth wonderful things; thou art God alone Teach me thy way O Lord, I will walk in thy truth. Unite my heart to fear thy name. I will praise thee O Lord my God, with all my heart and I will glorify thy name for evermore; for great is thy mercy toward me; and thy hast saved my soul from the lowest hell. O God the proud are rsen against me; and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul, and have not set free before them. But thou O Lord art a God full of compassion and gracious long suffering and plenteous in mercy and truth. O turn unto me and have mercy unto me. Give thy strength unto thy servant and save the son of thy handmaiden. Show me a token for good, that they which hate me may see it and be ashamed because thou Lord hast holpen me and comforted me.

Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people; thou hast covered all their sins. Thou hast taken away all thy wrath, thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thy anger. Turn us O God of our salvation and cause thy anger toward us to cease. Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations? Wilt thou not revive us again that thy people may rejoice in thee? Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation. I will hear what God the Lord will speak; for He will speak peace unto His people, and to His saints; but let them not again turn to folly. Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear Him, that glory may dwell in the land. Mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good, and our land shall yield her increase. Righteousness shall go before Him, and shall set us in the way of His steps.

My heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altar O Lord of hosts, my king and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, they will be still praising thee. Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee. Whose heart are the ways of them, whose passing through the valley of Raca, make it a well. The rain also filleth the pools. They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer, give ear O God of Jacob. Behold O God our shield and look upon the face of thine anointed; for a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the lord is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory, no good thing will be withheld from them that walk uprightly O Lord of Hosts blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

For lo, thine enemies make a tumult and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people and consulted against the hidden ones. They have said come and let us cut them off from being a nation, that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent; they are confederate against thee. The Taberancles of Edom and the Ishmaelites of Moab and the Hagarenes. Gebal and Ammon and Amalek the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre. Assur also is joined with them. they have holpen the children of Lot. Do unto them as unto the Medianites as to Sisera as to Jabin at the brook of Kison,which perished at Endor; they became as dung for the earth. Make their nobles as Oreb and like Zeeb. Yea all their princes as Zebah and as Zalmunna. Who said, let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. O my God, make like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire, so persecute them with thy tempest and make them afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame that they may seek thy face that they may seek thy face O Lord. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever yea, let them be put to shame and perish. That men may know that thou whose name alone is JEHOVAH art the Most High over all the earth.

They knew not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Most High. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise O God, a judge the earth; for thou shall inherit all nations.

BRAGADAYJAH 1438 Psalm 81 A Psalm of Asaph A Call to Proper Worship Sing aloud unto God our strength, make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob. Take a psalm and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery. Blow up the trumpet in the new moon in the time appointed on our solemn feast day. For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob. This He ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I understood not. I removed his shoulder from the burden, his hands were delivered from the pots, Thou callest in trouble and I delivered thee, I answered thee in the secret place of thunder. I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Hear my people and I will testify unto thee, O Israel if thou will hearken unto me. there shall no strange God be in thee, neither shall thou worship any strange god. I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt. Open thy mouth wide and I will fill it. But my people would not hearken to my voice and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own heart’s lust, and they walked in their own counsels. O that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways. I should soon have subdued their enemies, and tuned my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him; but their time should have endured for ever. He should have fed them also with the finest of wheat and with honey; out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

Thou that dwellest between the cherubim, shine forth. Before Ephraim and Benjamine and Manasseh stir up thy strength and come and save us.Turn us again O Lord, and casuse thy face to shine, and we shall be saved. O Lord God of host how long will thou be angry, against the prayer of thy people? Thou feedeth them with the bread of tears and give them tears to drink in good measure; thou maketh us a strife unto out neighbour and our enemies laught among themselves. Turn us again O God of hosts and cause thy face to shine, and we will be saved. Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt. Thou hast cast out the heathen and planted it. Thou preparedst room before it and caused it to take deep root and it filled the land. The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars. She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches into the river. Why hast thou then broken down her hedges so that all day they which pass by the way do pluck her? The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field devour it. Return we beseech thee O God of hosts, look down from heaven and behold and visit the vine. and the vineyard which thy right hand has planted and the branch which thou maketh strong by thyself, it is burnt up witth fire; it is cut down; they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand; be upon the man which thou makest strong for thyself. So will not we go back from thee, quicken us and we will call upon thy name. Turn us again O Lord God of hosts; cuase thy face to shine and we will be saved.

BRAGADAYJAH 1436 Psalm 79: A Psalm of Asaph A Prayer for God’s Judgment O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled. Thet have laid Jerusalem on heaps. The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heavens; the flesh of thy servants unto the beasts of the earth. Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalm. And there was none to bury them. We have become a reproach to our neighbors, a scorn and dirision to them that are round about us. How long Lord? Will thou be angry forever? Shall thy jealousy burn like fire? Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee; and upon the kingoms that have not called upon thy name. For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place. O remember not against us former iniquities, Let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us, for we are brought very low. Help us O God of our salvation; for the glory of thy name and deliver us, and purge away our sins for thy names sake. Wherefore should the heathen say: Where is their God? Let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed. Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve those who are appointed to die; and render unto our neighbor sevenfold into their bosom their reproach wherewith they have reproached thee O Lord. So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever. We will show forth thy praise to all generations.

Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not His testimonies, but turned back and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers; they were turned aside like a deceitful bow; for they provoked Him to anger with their high places.and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. When God heard this, He was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel. So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which He placed among men, and delivered his strength into captivity,and his glory into the enemy’s hand. He gave his people over unto the sword, and was wroth with His inheritance. The fire consumed their young men, and their maidens were not given to marriage. Their priests fell by the sword, and their weadows made no lamentation. Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shoutest by reason of wine, And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts; he put them to a perpetual reproach. Moreover He refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim;but chose the tribe of Judah the mount Zion which He loved, And he built His sanctuary like high places, like the earth which /he has established forever. He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds, from following the ewes great with young, he brought him to feed Jacob his people,and Israel His inheritance. So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart, and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.

BRAGADAYJAH 1434

BRAGADAYJAH 1434 Psalm 78 A Psalm of Asaph God’s work in Israel’s History. Part IV He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and all their flocks to hot thunderbolts. He cast upon them the fierceness of His anger, wrath and ingination and trouble by sending evil angels among them. He made a way to His anger, He spared not their soul from death; but gave their life over to the pestilence. And smote all the firstborn in Egypt, the chief of their strength in their tabernacle of Ham, but made his own people to go forth like sheep and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. And He led them out safely so that they feared not; but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. And He brought them to the border of His sanctuary even to this mountain which His right hand had purchased.

BRAGADAYJAH 1434

BRAGADAYJAH 1434 Psalm 78 A Psalm of Asaph God at work in Israel’s History Part II So that although God struck them with a heavy hand, as for all this they sinned still and believed not of his wondrous works Therefore, their days did He consume in vanity and their years in trouble. When He slew them; then they sought him and they returned and inquired early after God. And they remember that God was their rock and the high God their redeemer. Never the less they did flatter Him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongue. For their heart was not right with him. Neither were they steadfast in his covenant; but He being full of compassion forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not; yea, many a time turned He His anger away and did not stir up all his wrath. For He remembered that they were but flesh, a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again. How oft did they provoke them in the wilderness, and grieve Him in the desert. Yea they turned back and tempted God and limited the holy one of Israel. They remembered not his hand not the day when he delivered them from their enemies. How He had wrought His signs in Egypt and His wonders in the field of Zoan. And had turned their rivers into blood and their floods that they could not drink. He sent divers sorts of flies among them which devoured them, and frogs which destroyed them. He gave also their increase unto the caterpillar and their labour unto the locust. He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore trees with frosts.

BRAGADAYJAH 1432

BRAGADAYJAH 1432 Psalm 78 A Psalm of Asaph God At Work in Israel’s History Part III Though He had commanded the clouds the clouds from above and open the doors of heaven And had rained down manna upon them to eat and had given them of the corn of heaven. Man did eat angels food. He sent from them meat to the full. He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven and by his power he brought in the south wind. He rained flesh also upon them as dust and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea. And He let it fall in the midst of their camp round about their habitations. So they did eat and were well filled; for he gave them their own desire. They were not estranged from their lust; but while their meat was yet in their mouth, the wrath of God came upon them and slew the fattest of them and smote down the chosen men of Israel. For all this they sinned still and believed not his wondrous works. [to be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH 1431

BRAGADAYJAH 1431 Psalm 78. God at work in Israel’s History Part II The children of Ephraim being armed, carrying bows turned back in the day of battle. They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in His law. And forgot His works and His wonders that He had showed them, Marvelous things did He in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan. He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and He made the waters to stand still as an heap. In the daytime also He led them with a cloud and all the night with a light of fire. He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as of out of the great depth. He brought streams also out of the rock and cause waters to run down like rivers; and they sinned yet more against Him provoking the most high in the wilderness; and they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust. Yea they spoke against God; they said can God furnish a table in the wilderness? Behold He smote the rock that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed. Can He give bread also, can He provide flesh for the people. Therefore the Lord heard this and was wrath, so a fire was kindled against Jacob and anger came up also against Israel. Because they believed not in God and trusted not in his salvartion. [To be continued]

BRAGADAYJAH 1430

BRAGADAYJAH 1430 Psalm 78 A Psalm of Asaph God at work in Israel’s history Part I Give ear O my people to my law, incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable, I will utter dark saying of old. Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children showing to the generations to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and the wonderful works that He has done. For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers that they should make them known to their children. That the generation to come might know them even the children that should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children. That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God; but keep His commandments And might not be as their fathers a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not steadfast with God.
