19 JEHOVAH is near unto the broken in heart; and saveth those, who are of a contrite spirit.
20 Though many are the sufferings of the righteous man ; JEHOVAH delivereth bim from all of them.
21 JEHOVAH guardeth all bis bones, not one of them shall be broken.
22 But misfortune shall slay the wicked; and those, who hate the righteous, JEHOVAH will destroy.
PLEAD thou my cause, O JEHOVAH ! with those who contend with me; and fight thou against those, who fight against
2 Lay hold of the shield and buckler; and stand UP
defence. 3 Nay, draw forth thy spear and sword, and secure me from the assault of those who persecute me; say unto me," I am thy salvation.”
4 Let those who seek my life, be confounded and put to shame; let those be repulsed and confounded, who devise mischief against me.
5 Let them be like the dust before the wind; dispersed by the angel of JEHOVAH.
6 Let their way be dark and slippery ; pursued by the angel of JEHOVAH.
7 For they have laid a snare - for me without cause; without cause they have digged a pit for me.
8 Let ruin overtake them suddenly ; let the snare which they laid, take hold on themselves, that they may fall into the destruction prepared for others.
9 Then shall my soul rejoice in JeroVAH; and be over-joyed with his salvation.
10 Then all my bones shall say : “ Who is like unto thee, O JEHOVAH ! who deliverest the afflicted from the hand of him who was too strong for him ; even the afflicted and the destitute, from him who would have despoiled him ?”
11 False witnesses rise up against me; they lay to my charge crimes which are unknown to me.
12 They repay me evil for good; they attempt to bereave me of
life. 13 Yet, while they were sick, I clothed myself in sack-cloth, and humbled myself with fasting ; but my prayer was returned into mine own bosom.
14 I walked
14 I walked about, as though it had been a friend or a brother ; I went heavily, like one who inourneth for a mother.
15 But, in mine adversity, they rejoiced, and associated together : revilers, whom I know not, associated against me :
16 While they flattered me, they obliquely sneered at me; they gnashed at me with their teeth.
17 How long, O JEHOVAH! wilt thou look on? oh! rescue my life from their mischievous designs; and my dearest life from those young lions. .
18 Then will I celebrate thee in the great assembly; I will praise thee before a numerous people.
19 Let not mine enemies, without cause, rejoice over me; neither let those who hate me without reason, wink with their eyes.
20 For their discourse tendeth not to peace ; they devise deceitful words against those, who are peaceable in the land.
21 They open wide their mouths against me, and say: “Ha! Ha! our eyes behold, what we only imagined.” 22 This thou hast seen, O JEHOVAH!
therefore be not thou silent therefore ; neither be far from me, O JEHOVAH !
23 Awake, and exert thyself to do me justice ; awake, o my God! and my LORD! to decide my cause.
24 Judge me, according to my righteousness, O JEHOVAH! my God! and let them not rejoice over me:
25 Lest they say in their heart,-" Ha! we have had our wish ;” lest they say,– “We have devoured him."
26 Let those, who rejoice at my calamity, be confounded and brought to shame: let those be covered with reproof and dishonour who magnify themselves against
27 But let those, who delight in mine innocence, sing aloud and rejoice in thee; and let them ever say,—“ Praised be JEHOVAH, who hath favoured the cause of his servant."
28 Then shall my tongue talk of thy justice; and daily resound thy praise.
PSALM XXXVI. REBELLION lodgeth in the heart of the wicked; there is no fear of GOD before his eyes.
2 He even flattereth himself in his own sight; lest he should discover and detest his iniquity.
3 The words of his mouth are full of iniquity and deceit; he hath ceased to be sufficiently wise to do good.
4. He deviseth mischief while upon his bed ; he persisteth in a way which is not good, and abhorreth not the thing which is evil.
5 Thy loving-kindness, O JEHOVAH ! reacheth unto the heavens : and thy faithfulness unto the clouds.
6 Thy justice standeth firm like the strong mountains ; thy judgments are like a deep abyss.
7 How precious is thy loving-kindness, JEHOVAH ! Thou, O JEHOVAH! preservest man and beast; therefore, the children of men shall take refuge under the shadow of thy wings.
8 They shall be satisfied with the abun. dance of the good things of thine house; and the torrent of pleasures thou makest them to drink.
9 For with thec is the fountain of life ; and by thy light we are enlightened.
