and the hungry soul he hath filled with good.

10 They who sat in darkness and the shadow of death : who were bound in at fliction and iron :

11 Because they had rebelled against the commands of GOD : and had disregarded the counsel of the most high :

12 Whose heart he had humbled with sorrow ; and who were fallen, and there was no one to help them ;

13 When these cried unto JEHOVAH in their tribulation ; he delivered them from their distress :

14. He brought them out of darkness, and the shadow of death ; and brake their chains asunder.

1; Let these, therefore, praise Jehovah for his mercy; and for the wonderful things which he hath done for the children of men :

16 For he hath broken open the gates of brass ; and hath cut asunder the bolts of iron.

17 The foolish, because of their sinful way, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted :

18 Their

19 Their soul doth nauscate all food; and they approach toward the gates of death :

19 When these cry unto Jehovah in their tribulation ; he delivereth them from their distress :

20 He sendeth forth his word, and healeth them; and rescueth them from destruction.

21 Let these, therefore, praise JEHOVAH for his mercy; and for the wonderful things which he hath done for the children of mnen.

22 Let these offer sacrifices of praise ; and recount his works with joy.

23 They who sail on the sca in ships ; and transact business on the great waters :

24 They see the works of Jehovah, and his wonderful doings, on the ocean :

25 For, at his command, a tempestuous wind ariseth, and lifteth up the waves thereof:

26 Which ascend unto the heavens, and descend again into the abyss ; at the roaring of which, their soul melteth with fear :

27 They reel and stagger like a drunken man ; and all their skill in sailing faileth them :

28 When

28 When these cry unto JEHOVAH in their tribulation; he delivereth them from their distress :

29 He turneth the tempest into a calm ; and stilleth the waves of the sea.

30 Then they rejoice because they are at ease ; and he leadeth them to the port where they wished to be landed.

31 Let these, therefore, praise JEHOVAH for his mercy ; and for the wonderful things which he hath done for the children of men.

32 Let these praise JEHOVAH in the as. sembly of the people ; let these praise him in the council of the elders.

33 He can make a well-watered country a desert : and a land abounding with springs he can convert into a dry soil :

34 A fruitful land be can change into a barren waste; because of the wickedness of those who inhabit it.

35 He can turn a desert into a land abounding with springs ; and a dry soil into a well-watcred country :

36 And settle there the hungry; that they may build a city which they inay inhabit: : 37 And sow fields and plant vineyards, which

may produce increase of fruits.

38 He can bless them, so that they shall multiply exceedingly ; and their cattle. shall not be few.

39 So again ; when they are reduced and brought low by oppression, calamity, and afriction :

40 He can pour shame upon princes ; and make them to wander in the pathless desert :

41 While he raiseth the distressed from affliction ; and maketh his tribes like a flock of sheep.

42 The righteous will see this, and rcjoice ; and the mouth of all iniquity shall be stopped.

43 He who is wise will observe these things ; and will understand thie mercies of JEHOVAH.

PSALM CVIII.

MINE heart is ready, o God! mine heart is ready ; I will sing and give praise.

2 Awake, my tongue; awake, my lyre and harp! I will wake the early morning.

3 I will praise thee, O JEHOVAH ! among the peoples; I will celebrate thee among the nations:

4 For thy bounty reacheth unto the heavens; and thy truth unto the clouds.

5 Be thou exalted, O GOD! above the heavens ; be thy glory displayed over all the earth.

6 Hear! and rescue us with thy right-hand, that thy beloved people may be delivered.

7 GOD answereth favourably from his sanctuary, therefore, I will rejoice : I shall yet divide Sichem into lots, and measure out the valley of Succoth :

8 Gilead shall be mine, and Manasseh shall be mine; Ephraim shall be the helmet of mine head ; and Judah my lawgiver :

9 Moab shall be my washing pot; at Edom I shall cast my shoe, and over Philistia I shall triumph.

10 Who will lead me to that strong city? Who will conduct me to Edom ?

in Wilt thou, O GOD! still rejectus, and not go forth with our armies ?

12 Grant now thine aid after our distress; for vain is the help of man.

13 Through God we shall do great deeds; for he will tread down our enemies.
