O come hither and hearken, all ye who fear God, and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul.

I called unto him with my mouth, and gave him praises with my tongue.

If I incline unto wickedness with my heart, the Lord will not hear me.

But God hath heard me, and considered the voice of my prayer.

Praised be God, who hath not cast out my prayer, nor turned his mer

PSALM 68.

LET God arise, and let his enemies be scattered; let those also who hate him flee before him.

But let the righteous be glad, and rejoice before God; yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

O sing unto God, and sing praises unto his name; magnify him who rideth upon the heavens: praise him in his name JEHOVAH, and rejoice before him.

Sing unto God, O ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord;

PSALM 71.

IN thee, O Lord, have I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion, but rescue me, and deliver me in thy righteousness; incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

Be thou my strong hold, whereunto I may alway resort; thou hast promised

to help me, for thou art my house of defence and my castle.

Deliver me, O God, out of the hand of the ungodly, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

For thou art my hope, O Lord God; thou art my hope, even from my youth.

Through thee have I been holden up ever since I was born; my praise shall be always of thee.

I am become a wonder unto many; but my sure trust is in thee.

O let my mouth be filled with thy praise, that I may sing of thy glory and honour all the day long.

Cast me not away in the time of age; forsake me not when my strength faileth me.

For mine enemies speak against me, and they who lay wait for my soul, take their counsel together, saying, God hath forsaken him; persecute him, and take him; for there is none to deliver him.

Go not far from me, Ọ God; my God, haste thee to help me.

As for me, I will patiently abide alway, and will praise thee more and more.

My mouth shall daily

speak of thy righteousness and salvation; for I know no end thereof.

I will go forth in the strength of the Lord God, and will make mention of thy righteousness only.

Thou, O God, hast taught me from my youth up until now; therefore will I tell of thy wondrous works.

Forsake me not, O God, in mine old age, when I am gray headed, until I have shown thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to all those who are yet to come.

Thy righteousness, 0 God, is very high, and great things are those which thou hast done; O God, who is like unto thee!

O what great troubles and adversities hast thou shown me and yet didst thou turn and refresh me, yea, and broughtest me from the depths of the earth again.

Thou hast brought me to great honour, and comforted me on every side.

Therefore will I praise thee and thy faithfulness, O God, playing upon an instrument of music; unto thee will I sing upon the

He shall live, and unto him shall be given of the gold of Arabia; prayer shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

There shall be abundance of corn in the earth; its fruit shall wave like Lebanon; and they of the city shall flourish like the grass of the earth.

His name shall endure for ever; his name shall remain under the sun among the posterities which shall be blessed through him; and all the heathen shall praise him. Blessed be the Lord God, even the God of Israel, who only doth wondrous things;

And blessed be the name of his majesty for ever; and all the earth shall be filled with his majesty. Amen, Amen.
