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.

PSALM XCIX.

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

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.

PSALM C.

In the Morning prayer, p. 7.

PSALM CI.

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.

Y 3

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.

PSALM CII.

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

compassion on her ; when the season com

eth :

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.
