Thou ancient stock of Israel,
9 Throughout the land of thy abode
Nor shalt thou to a foreign god
Io I am the Lord thy God, which brought
Ask large enough, and I, besought,
II And yet my people would not hear,
And Israel, whom I loved so dear,
12 Then did I leave them to their will,
Their own conceits they followed still
13 Oh that my people would be wise,
14 Then would I soon bring down their foes,
That now so proudly rise,
And turn my hand against all those
15 Who hate the Lord should then be fain
But they, his people, should remain;
16 And he would feed them from the shock
And satisfy them from the rock
3 Tishphetu gnavel.
4 Regard the weak and fatherless ;
6 I said that ye were gods, yea all
7 But ye shall die like men, and fall
As other princes die.
8 Rise, God; 7 judge thou the earth in might;
This wicked earth' redress;
For thou art he who shalt by right
I BE not thou silent now at length;
2 For lo! hy furious foes now 1swell, And1 storm outrageously;
And they that hate thee, proud and fell,
3 Against thy people they 2 contrive
4 Them to ensnare they chiefly strive 5 Whom thou dost hide and keep.
4 "Come, let us cut them off," say they,
Till they no nation be;
That Israel's name for ever may
Be lost in memory."
5 For they consult with all their might,
Themselves against thee they unite,
6 The tents of Edom, and the brood
7 Neoth Elohim bears both.
8 They seek thy name: Heb.
Moab, with them of Hagar's blood,
7 Gebal and Ammon there conspire,
The Philistines, and they of Tyre,
All these have lent their armed hands
Thou didst to Jabin's host,
God's houses, and will now invade
13 My God, oh make them as a wheel;
14 As, when an aged wood takes fire
The greedy flame runs higher and higher,
15 So with thy whirlwind them pursue,
With shame, and scape it never.
Art the Most High, and thou the same
I How lovely are thy dwellings fair!
Where thou dost dwell so near!
3 There even the sparrow, freed from wrong,
And home they fly from round the coasts Toward thee, my King, my God. 4 Happy who in thy house reside,
Where thee they ever praise!
5 Happy whose strength in thee doth bide, And in their hearts thy ways!
6 They pass through Baca's thirsty vale, That dry and barren ground,
As through a fruitful watery dale
Where springs and showers abound. 7 They journey on from strength to strength With joy and gladsome cheer,
Till all before our God at length
In Sion do appear.
8 Lord God of Hosts, hear now my prayer,
O Jacob's God, give ear:
9 Thou, God, our shield, look on the face Of thy anointed dear.
10 For one day in thy courts to be
II For God, the Lord, both sun and shield,
Gives grace and glory bright;
No good from them shall be withheld
Of all that other gods have done
9 The nations all whom thou hast made
To bow them low before thee, Lord,
10 For great thou art, and wonders great
Remainest God alone.
II Teach me, O Lord, thy way most right;
To fear thy name my heart unite;
12 Thee will I praise, O Lord my God,
With my whole heart, and blaze abroad
13 For great thy mercy is toward me,
14 O God, the proud against me rise,
To seek my life, and in their eyes
15 But thou, Lord, art the God most mild, Readiest thy grace to shew,
Slow to be angry, and art styled
16 Oh turn to me thy face at length,
Unto thy servant give thy strength,
I AMONG the holy mountains high
There seated in his sanctuary,
His temple there is placed.
2 Sion's fair gates the Lord loves more
