and thou
Psalm 18:1-50
1
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
4
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.
5
The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
6
In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.
7
Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
8
There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.
9
He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
10
And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
11
He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.
12
At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
13
The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
14
Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.
15
Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
16
He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
17
He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
18
They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
19
He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
20
The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
21
For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
22
For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
23
I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.
24
Therefore hath the LORD recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight.
25
With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;
26
With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
27
For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.
28
For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
29
For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.
30
As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
31
For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
32
It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
33
He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
34
He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
35
Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
36
Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.
37
I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.
38
I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.
39
For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.
40
Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.
41
They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not.
42
Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.
43
Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.
44
As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.
45
The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
46
The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
47
It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.
48
He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.
49
Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.
50
Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
Psalm 40:1-17
1
I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3
And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4
Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5
Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6
Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
7
Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
8
I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
9
I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
10
I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
11
Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
12
For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
13
Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
14
Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15
Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16
Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
17
But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
Psalm 103:1-22
1
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 our iniquities.
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 him.
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 flourisheth.
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 over all.
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 pleasure.
22
Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
Psalm 106:1-107
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 praise?
3
Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
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 wickedly.
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 Abiram.
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 grass.
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 destroy them.
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 LORD.
26
Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
27
To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
28
They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
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 stayed.
31
And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.
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 lips.
34
They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:
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.
Psalm 116:1-19
1
I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2
Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
4
Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
5
Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
6
The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
7
Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8
For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9
I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10
I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
11
I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12
What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
13
I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
14
I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
15
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16
O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
17
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
18
I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
19
In the courts of the LORD'S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
1 Timothy 1:14-16
14
And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
16
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
