2 For thou hast granted him his heart's desire ; and hast not denied him the request of his lips.

3 Thou hast even preceded bis wishes with thy bounteous blessings ; and hast placed a crown of pure gold upon his head.

4 He asked of thee life; and thou hast granted bim a long life.

5 His glory is great in being saved by thee; honour and renown thou hast conferred upon him.

6 Thou hast established him in lasting happiness ; and made him to rejoice in thy gracious countenance.

7 Because the king placeth his trust in JEHOVAH, and in the mercy of the most high; his throne shall never be moved.

8 Thine band shall find out all thine enemies ; and thy right-hand shall find out those who hate thee. 9

In the time of thine indignation, thou wilt make them like a fiery furnace: JEHOVAH will destroy them in his displeasure; his fire will consume them :

10 Their offspring thou wilt destroy from the earth ; and their posterity from among the children of men.

11 Because

11 Because they intend mischief against thee; and meditate a design which they are not able to execute :

12 Therefore, thou wilt make them a mark to thine arrows; and wilt make ready the strings of thy bow against them.

13 Arisc, o JEHOVAH ! in thine own might; that we may sing, and praise thy power.

PSALM XXII.

MY GOD! my God! why forsakest thou mc; and art removed from my cry, and from the words of my complaint ?

2 O my God! I call in the day-time, but thou answerest not; and in the nightseason, but without relief.

3 Nevertheless, thou art still the holyONE; the subject of praise in Israel.

4 Our fathers trusted in thce: they trusted in thce, and thou didst deliver them:

5 They cried unto thee, and were dedivered ; they trusted in thee, and were not

put to shame,

6 But I am treated as a worm, and not a man; the reproach of men, and the derision of the people.

7 All those who see me, laugh at me; they put out their lips, and shake their

heads;

8 “ He committeth himself, say ther, unto JEHOVAH : let him deliver him, since he delighteth in him.”

9 But, thou art he who took me froin the womb; thou wast mine hope while I banged on my mother's breast :

10 I have been thrown upon thec ever since I was born ; thou hast been my GOD from my mother's womb.

II O be not far from me when distress is nigh; for there is no one else to deliver me.

12 A multitude of bulls are come about me; the fierce bulls of Bashan surround

me:

13 They open wide their mouths against mc; like a ravenous and roariag lion.

14 My flesh is loose as water, and all my bones are dissolved; mine heart, like wax, is melted within me :

15 My substance is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; thou hast laid me in the dust of death.

16 A multitude of dogs besct me; they tear mine hands and my feet.

17 A crowd

17 A crowd of the wicked surround me; they number all my bones, and look and stare at me :

18 They divide my garments among them; and cast lots for my clothing..

19 But be not thou, O JEHOVAH ! far from me; my God! hasten to mine aid :

20 Rescue my life from the sword; and my helpless person from the power of the dog.

21 Save me from the mouth of the lion; and defend me from the horns of the rhi

noceros.

22 Then will I declare thy name among my brethren ; thus I will praise thee in the midst of the assembly :

23 “O! praise JEHOVAH, ye who fear him; give glory unto him, all ye family of Jacob; and reverence him, all ye posterity of Israel :

24 “ For he hath not despised nor disdained the distress of the afflicted; he hath not hidden his countenance from him ; but when he cried unto him, he heard him."

25 My praise shall be of thee in the great assembly ; I will perform my vows in the presence of those who fear thee.

26 The needy shall eat, and be satisfied: they who seek JEHOVAH, shall praise him, and their hearts shall be refreshed.

27 All the inhabitants of the land, to its utmost limits, shall repent, and return unto JEHOVAH; all the families of the people shall worship him.

28 For the kingdom is Jehovah's; and he ruleth over the people.

29 All the rich of the land shall eat and worship him :

30 And those who are starving shall adore, and be satisfied.

31 Posterity shall serve him; and be reckoned his for generations to come ;

32 They shall declare his justice to people who are yet unborn.

PSALM XXIII.

JEHOVAH is my shepherd; therefore I shall never want.

2 He fecdeth me in green pastures : and leadeth me by the side of gentle waters.

3 Hc refresheth me, and guideth me in right paths, for his own name's sake.)
