6 Rejoice before JEHOVAH, the king, with trumpets, and the sound of the cornet.
7 Let the sea, and the fulness thereof, roar; the world, and those who inhabit it.
8 Let the rivers clap their hands; together let the mountains shout for joy before JEHOVAH;
9 For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth : and he will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.
JEHOVAH reigneth, let the peoples stand in awe; he sitteth between the cherubim, let the earth tremble.
2 JEHOVAH is great in Zion, and he is exalted above all peoples. 3
Let these, therefore, praise his great and awful name ; for he is holy and powerful.
4 The king loveth judgment; thou art he who hast established equitable laws in Israel ; and hast executed justice in Jacob.
5 Extol, therefore, JEHOVAH Our GOD, and fall prostrate before his foot stool ; for he is holy and righteous.
6 Moses and Aaron were among
his ministers, and Samuel among those who invoked his name : these called upon JeHOVAH, and he answered them.
7 When JEHOVAH spake unto them from a pillar of cloud ; they observed his commandinents and the ordinance which he gave them. 8 0 JEHOVAH !
our GOD, thou didst hear them; thou wert the God who supported them, and took vengeance on the designs against them.
9 Extol, therefore, JEHOVAH, our GOD, and fall prostrate on his holy mountain ; for JEHOVAH, our God, is holy.
In the Morning prayer, p. 7.
My song shall be of mercy and judgment; unto thee, o JEHOVAH ! will I sing:
2 I will instruct in the way of virtue those whom thou shalt place under me ; I will walk within mine house with an upright heart.
3 I will 3 I will not place before mine eyes the man who turneth aside from thy luw: I hate him who committeih impiety; he sball not cleave unto me.
4 7 hc perverse heart shall remove from before me; I will not kuow a wicked person.
5. He who secretly slandereth his neighbour, him will I destroy: he who hath a lofty eye and a proud heart, him I will not suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall look upon the faith. ful in the land, that they may dwell with me ; and he who walketh in the path of integrity, shall minister unto me,
7 He who practiseth deceit, shall not dwell within minc house; he who speaketh falschood shall not continue in my presence.
8 Every morning will I be destroying all the wicked of the land ; that I may cut off all the workers of iniquity from the city of JEHOVAH.
HEAR my supplication, O JEHOVAH ! and let my cry come unto thee.
2 Hide not thy face from me in the day of iny distress ; incline thine ear, and hasten to answer ine, when I call unto thce.
3 For my days vanish like smoke, and iny bones are burnt up like a fire-brand :
4 Mine hcart is blighted, and withereth like grass, because I forget to eat my bread ; and my bones cleave to my skin, because of my sighing :
5 I resemble a pelican in the wilderness; I ain become like a bird of prey that liveth in desert places :
6 I watch all night: I am like the lonely bird on the house-top :' and, throughout the day, mine enemies revile me, and furiously conspire against me.
7 Surely I eat ashes as bread, and mix tears with my drink, because of thy wrath and indignation ; for thou hast made me desolate, and cast me down.
8 My days decline like the evening-shadow, and I wither like grass.
9 But thou, O JEIIOVAH ! shalt endure for ever : and the remembrance of thee sball remain through all generations.
10 Thou shalt arise, and shalt have mercy oa Zion, when itis time to baye
compassion on her ; when the season com
11. Because thy servants have an affection for the very stones thereof; and they are grieved to see her in ruins.
12 Then shall the nations fear thy name, O JEHOVAH ! and the kings of the earth, thy glory :
13 When JEHOVAH buildeth Zion, and he appeareth again in his glory : 14 When he regardeth the prayer
of the destitute ; and rejecteth not their supplication.
15 This shall be recorded for posterity; and future generations shall praise JEHOVAH.
16 Because JEHOVAH did look down from the height of his holy place; from the heavens he looked down upon the earth :
17 To attend the anguish of the fettered captives; to release those who were condemned to die;
18 That they might proclaim the name of JEHOVAH in Zion; and his praise in Je. rusalein :
19 When the peoples and the kingdoms were asseinbled to serve JEHOVAH.
