Psalms 101:1 ¶<<A Psalm of
David.>> I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto
me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that
turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
4 A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person.
5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath
an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.
6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with
me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth
lies shall not tarry in my sight.
8 I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all
wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
Psalms 102:1 ¶<<A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and
poureth out his complaint before the LORD.>> Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let
my cry come unto thee.
2 Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine
ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.
3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
4 My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my
5 By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
6 I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are
sworn against me.
9 For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
10 Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up,
and cast me down.
11 My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
12 ¶But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all
13 Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her,
yea, the set time, is come.
14 For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust
15 So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the
earth thy glory.
16 When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which
shall be created shall praise the LORD.
19 For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did
the LORD behold the earth;
20 To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed
21 To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
22 When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the
23 ¶He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
24 I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are
throughout all generations.
25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are
the work of thy hands.
26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old
like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be
27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
28 The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be
established before thee.
Psalms 103:1 ¶<<A Psalm of David.>> Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that
is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with
lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed
like the eagle's.
6 ¶The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward
them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our
transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear
14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall
know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them
that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments
to do them.
19 ¶The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth
20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his
commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21 Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his
22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the
LORD, O my soul.
Psalms 104:1 ¶Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great;
thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the
heavens like a curtain:
3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds
his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for
6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above
7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place
which thou hast founded for them.
9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not
again to cover the earth.
10 ¶He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their
12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing
among the branches.
13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the
fruit of thy works.
14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of
man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to
shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.
16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he
17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her
18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the
19 ¶He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the
forest do creep forth.
21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in
23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all:
the earth is full of thy riches.
25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable,
both small and great beasts.
26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play
27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due
28 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are
filled with good.
29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath,
they die, and return to their dust.
30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the
face of the earth.
31 ¶The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in
32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and
33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God
while I have my being.
34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no
more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
Psalms 105:1 ¶O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known
his deeds among the people.
2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the
4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the
judgments of his mouth;
6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
8 ¶He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to
a thousand generations.
9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an
11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your
12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in
13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another
14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their
15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff
17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:
18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.
20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him
21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their
25 ¶He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his
26 He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27 They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his
29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their
31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their
32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of
34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without
35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of
36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their
37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one
feeble person among their tribes.
38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.
39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.
40 The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the
bread of heaven.
41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places
like a river.
42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.
43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:
44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of
45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the
Psalms 106:1 ¶Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is
good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his
3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at
4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O
visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness
of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
6 ¶We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done
7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the
multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.
8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his
mighty power to be known.
9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through
the depths, as through the wilderness.
10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them
from the hand of the enemy.
11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
13 ¶They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of
18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth
21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.
23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen
stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should
24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:
25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the
26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the
27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in
28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the
29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague
brake in upon them.
30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was
31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for
32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with
Moses for their sakes:
33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his
34 ¶They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded
35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their
daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was
polluted with blood.
39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with
their own inventions.
40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch
that he abhorred his own inheritance.
41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them
ruled over them.
42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection
under their hand.
43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel,
and were brought low for their iniquity.
44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:
45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the
multitude of his mercies.
46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give
thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.
48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and
let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
Psalms 107:1 ¶O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy
endureth for ever.
2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand
of the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from
the north, and from the south.
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to
5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out
of their distresses.
7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of
8 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful
works to the children of men!
9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with
10 ¶Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in
affliction and iron;
11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel
of the most High:
12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and
there was none to help.
13 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of
14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their
bands in sunder.
15 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful
works to the children of men!
16 For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in
17 ¶Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities,
18 Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the
gates of death.
19 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of
20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their
21 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful
works to the children of men!
22 And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his
works with rejoicing.
23 ¶They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
24 These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
25 For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the
26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul
is melted because of trouble.
27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their
28 Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of
29 He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
30 Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their
31 Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful
works to the children of men!
32 Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him
in the assembly of the elders.
33 ¶He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry
34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell
35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into
36 And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for
37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of
38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth
not their cattle to decrease.
39 Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction,
40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the
wilderness, where there is no way.
41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families
like a flock.
42 The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her
43 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand
the lovingkindness of the LORD.
Psalms 108:1 ¶<<A Song or Psalm of David.>> O God, my heart is fixed; I will
sing and give praise, even with my glory.
2 Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
3 I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people: and I will sing praises unto
thee among the nations.
4 For thy mercy is great above the heavens: and thy truth reacheth unto the
5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the
6 ¶That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer
7 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem,
and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8 Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine
head; Judah is my lawgiver;
9 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will
10 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
11 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go
forth with our hosts?
12 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
13 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our
Psalms 109:1 ¶<<To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.>> Hold not thy
peace, O God of my praise;
2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened
against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me
without a cause.
4 For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.
5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
6 ¶Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.
7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become
8 Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their
bread also out of their desolate places.
11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil
12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to
favour his fatherless children.
13 Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their
name be blotted out.
14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not
the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory
of them from the earth.
16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and
needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in
blessing, so let it be far from him.
18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it
come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
19 Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle
wherewith he is girded continually.
20 Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them
that speak evil against my soul.
21 ¶But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy
mercy is good, deliver thou me.
22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as
24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
25 I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked
26 Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:
27 That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it.
28 Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but
let thy servant rejoice.
29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves
with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him
among the multitude.
31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those
that condemn his soul.
Psalms 110:1 ¶<<A Psalm of David.>> The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at
my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the
midst of thine enemies.
3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of
holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.
4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after
the order of Melchizedek.
5 ¶The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his
6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead
bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the
Psalms 111:1 ¶Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole
heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure

and full of compassion.
5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his

the heritage of the heathen.
7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are
8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for
ever: holy and reverend is his name.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding
have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Psalms 112:1 ¶Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD,
that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall
3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth
4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and
full of compassion, and righteous.

7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in
8 His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire
upon his enemies.
9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth
for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth,
and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
Psalms 113:1 ¶Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise
the name of the LORD.
2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD'S name
is to be praised.
4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the
7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the
8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of
children. Praise ye the LORD.
Psalms 114:1 ¶When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a
people of strange language;
2 Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
5 What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou
wast driven back?
6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the
God of Jacob;
8 Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of
Psalms 115:1 ¶Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give
glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
2 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not:
neither speak they through their throat.
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in
