PSALM CXVI.

I REJOICE, because JEHOVAH hath heard the voice of my prayer.

2 I will call upon him as long as I live, because he hath inclined his ear unto me.

3 The snares of death surrounded me, and the toils of the grave surprised me:

4 When I found trouble and heaviness, I called upon the name of JEHOVAH; saying, "O JEHOVAH! I beseech thee, deliver

my life.

5 JEHOVAH is gracious and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

6 JEHOVAH preserveth the simple; I was brought very low, and he saved me.

7 Return then unto thy rest, o my soul ! since JEHOVAH hath been gracious unto thee.

8 For my life is delivered from death, mine eyes from tears, and my fect from falling ; that I may walk before thee in the land of the living.

9 I believed that I was lost; I was indeed greatly afflicted : I said in my flight, os all men are deceitful.”

15 I will offer unto thee the sacrifice of praise ; and call upon the name of JEHO

H.

PSALM

PSALM CXVIII.

O GIVE thanks unto JEHOVAH, for he is good, and his inercy endureth for ever.

2 Let the house of Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

3 Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

4 Let those who fear JEHOVAH now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.

5 When I was in distress, I called upon JEHOVAH : JEHOVAH answered me by setting me at large.

6 JEHOVAH is among those who help me; I will not fear what man can do unto me;

7 JEHOVAH is among those who help me; I shall therefore, be able to face mine enemies.

8 It is better to trust in JEHOVAH, than to place any confidence in man :

9 It is better to trust in JEHOVAH, than to place any confidence in princes.

10 All the nations surrounded me; but in the name of JEHOVAH did I destroy them.

11 They surrounded me; yea, they surrounded me entirely ; but in the name of Jehovah did I destroy them.

12 They 12 They surrounded me like bees ; but were soon extinct, like a blaze of thorns: for in the name of JEHOVAH did I destroy them.

13 They pushed at me with vehemence, that I might fall; but JEHOVAH helped me.

14 JEHOVAH is my strength, and the subject of my song; and is become my salvation.

15 The voice of joy and triumph is in the dwellings of the righteous, proclaiming; “ the right-hand of JEHOVAH hath done mighty things;

16 “ The right-band of JEHOVAH is exalted; the right-hand of JEHOVAH hath done mighty things."

17 I shall not die, but live; and recount the works of JEHOVAH.

* 18 JEHOVAH did greatly chastise me; but did not deliver me up unto death.

19 Open for me the gates of righteousness ; that I may enter into them, and give thanks unto JEHOVAH. 20 This is the gate of JEHOVAH ;

let therigh teous enter into it.

21 I will give thanks unto thee, for thou didst hear me ; and art become my salvation.

22 The stone which the builders rejected, is become the chief corner-stone:

23 This is Jehovah's doing; and it is wonderful in our eyes:

24. This hath JEHOVAH done to-day ; we rejoice and are glad through him.

25 Save us now, I beseech thee, o JEHOVAH! I beseech thee, o JEHOVAH! give

US NOW success.

26 Happy be he, who cometh in the name of JEHOVAH. We pronounce a blessing upon you from the house of jeHOVAH.

27 Jehovah is God, and he constantly enlighteneth us: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

28 Thou art my God, and I will thank thee; thou art iny God, and I will exalt thee.

29 O give thanks unto JEHOVAH! for he is good, and his mercy endureth for ever,
