*unfained heart (NOT pretending obligated/or unwilling)
*I will exercise myself in thy commandments; kjv and other bibles of man = "meditate" in thy precepts. which means to plan or consider "in" the mind, this is imperfect, for it can give rise to "the power of the mind; delusions" also see vain imaginings. Whereas the truth can not deceive. RN
* The way of the truth is the life that is ordered after the word of truth which is contained in the Scripture. Therin sayeth David that he hath walked: and not in fained (pretended) traditions and wholly imagined by himself, or by any mortal man. In the same signification useth Peter this word. 2 Peter 2, And there shall be false teachers by which the way of the truth shall be evil spoken of. MN      
      **KJV and other bibles of man = put me not to shame.Which is exactly where such "man-i pulation" of the word leads; confounded and ashamed. RN
*He desireth to have an other understanding than that which is taught by men, which are ignorant of God and his will, power, mercy and anger: yee, though it were never so well instructed and taught yet would never understand of it self without the spirit of God, that God is merciful and righteous and forgiveth sins freely without any deservings. MN ** KJV and other bibles of man = who is devoted to thy fear. RN ***amiable = Friendly and agreeable in disposition; good-natured and likable.and *my talking shall be of thy statutes, kjv and other bibles of man = I will meditate in thy statutes. see above meditations. *derision = contemptuous ridicule. *kjv = Horror hath taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law. RN kjv has "precepts". 1.The object of perception. 2. A mental impression of something perceived by the senses, viewed as the basic component in the formation of concepts;[ From Latin perceptum,] of course ~! Precepts are ungodly ways of mens "thinking" that lead to false religious doctrine and dogma.. RN *kindness :*(kjv= good judgment) KJV = *precepts; see above Their heart is as fat as *brawne, but my delight is in thy law. Brawne = the meat of a boor, pig, see boorish as in acting like a boor. KJV used grease. RN *but I will meditate in thy precepts. This entire sentence is again is added to the word in the kjv: RN *long ( kjv = fail ) KJV = *faithfulness, and leaves out "foundation" . See plainly that the foundation of the earth is Gods truth. All that is hurtful to mankind, is a result of straying from his truth. RN KJV = **are thy servants. Note "all things", and know that God can turn any wickedness to his own       good pleasure. RN**unto my throat.(This is the speaking out of Gods word. RN) *KJV = it is my meditation all the day. What does your heart tell you? Where can this prodding you to meditate lead...imaginations ? see that talking of it" spreads the word. RN **KJV = taste! Throat here signifieth the swallowing of the true word of God, rather than swallowing false teachings of men. RN *lantern *The word of God is called a lantern and light, because without it, all that there is, is darkness: and because that he which follow it cannot fall to any error. MN I apply mine heart to fulfill thy statutes alway, even unto the end. KJV = perform. As if not knowing the fulfilling of Gods statutes, we can simply "perform",even making performances. RN *My soul is always in my hand, yet do I not forget thy law. To have his soul in his hand, is to be appointed and ready to offer his life to danger, as yee have in Job 13, where it is expounded more at large. MN *depart (KJV = err) *MARK THIS KJV = I hate vain thoughts. **Again; the nonactive KJV = will have respect unto thy statute continually. ***dross = waste product, especially an oxide, formed on the surface during the process firing of molten metal. From the Hebrew: to turn away, to move back, . RN *loving mercy, * kjv leaves out this word "loving".RN      *surety = a condition where one is free from doubt, an undertaking to fulfill a covenant / testament       ;in this case, security against damage, loss, or injury, From the Hebrew : to know, confess, to absolutely be proven up, without a doubt. RN
*wont according to what your used to, in this case, Gods "wont" will , RN

 

 

 

Chapter 120

The song of the stairs

      When I am in trouble, I call upon the Lord, and he answereth me.
      Deliver my soul, O' Lord, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
      What reward shall be given or done unto thee, thou false tongue?
      Even mighty and sharp arrows, with hot burning coals.
      Wo is me, that my banishment endureth so long: I dwell in the tabernacles of the sorrowful. My soul hath long dwelt among them, that be enemies unto peace.
      I labored for peace, but when I spake thereof, they made them to battle.

 

 

 

Chapter 121

The song of the stairs.

      Behold, he that keepeth Israel, doth neither slumber nor sleep.
      The Lord himself is thy keeper, the Lord is thy defense upon thy right hand.

Chapter 122

The song of the stairs.

      I was glad when they said unto me: We will go in to the house of the Lord.
      Our feet shall stand in thy gates, O' Jerusalem.
      Jerusalem is builded as a city, that is at unity in itself.
      For there the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord: to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
      For there is the seat of judgment, even the seat of the house of David.
      O' pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee.
      Peace be within thy walls, and plenteousness within thy palaces.

The song of the stairs.

      Unto thee lift I up mine *eyes, thou that dwellest in the heavens. Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hands of their masters: and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hands of her mastress, even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us.
      Have mercy upon us, O' Lord, have mercy upon us, for we are utterly defiled.
      Our soul is filled with scornful reproof of the wealthy, and with the dispitefulness of the proud.

 

 

 

Chapter 124

The song of the stairs.

      If it the Lord had not been of our side ( now may Israel say) If the Lord had not been of our side, when men rose up against us. They had swallowed us up quick, when they were so wrathfully displeased at us.
      Yee the waters had drowned us, that the stream had gone over our soul.
      The deep waters of the proud had gone even unto our soul.
      But praised be the Lord, which hath not given us over for a prey unto their teeth.
      Our soul is escaped, as a bird out of the snare of the fowler, the snare is broken and we are delivered.Our help standeth in the name of the Lord, which hath made heaven and earth.

 

 

 

Chapter 125

The song of the stairs.

      They that trust in the Lord, are even as the *mount Sion, which may not be removed, but standeth fast for ever.
      The hills stand about Jerusalem, even so standeth the Lord round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.
      That the rod of the ungodly come not into the lot of the righteous, least the righteous put their hand unto wickedness.
      Do well, O' Lord, unto those that be good and true of heart.
      As for such as turn back unto their own wickedness, the Lord shall lead them forth with the evil doers: but peace be upon Israel.
 

*Note: They that trust in the Lord, are even as the mount Sion ...even as it is today RN

 

 

 

Chapter 126

The song of the stairs.

      When the Lord turneth again the captivity of Sion, then shall we be like unto them that dream.
      Then shall our mouth be filled with laughter, and our tongue with joy.
      Then shall it be said among the Heathen: The Lord hath done great things for them. Yee the Lord hath done great things for us already, whereof we rejoice.
      Turn our captivity, O' Lord, as the rivers in the south.
      They that sow in tears, shall reap in joy.
      He that now goeth in his way weeping and beareth good seed, shall come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him.

 

 

 

Chapter 127

The song of the stairs.

      Except the Lord build the house, the labor is but lost that build it.
      Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
      It is but lost labor that yee rise up early, and take no rest, but eat the bread of carefulness: for look to whom it pleaseth him, he giveth it in sleep.
      Lo, children and the fruit of the womb are an heritage and gift, that cometh of the Lord: Like as arrows in the hand of a giant, even so are the young children.
      Happy is the man, that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, when they speak with their enemies in the gate.

 

 

 

Chapter 128

The song of the stairs.

      Blessed are all they that fear the Lord, and walk in his ways.
      For thou shalt eat the labor of thine own hands: O' well is thee, happy art thou.
      Thy wife shall be as the fruitful vine upon the walls thy house.
      Thy children like the Olive branches, round about thy table.
      Lo, thus shall the man be blessed, that feareth the Lord.
      The Lord shall so bless thee out of Sion, that thou shalt see Jerusalem in prosperity all thy life long.
      Yee, that thou shalt see thy childrens children, and peace upon Israel.

 

 

 

Chapter 129

The song of the stairs.

      Many a time have they fought against me from my youth up,( may Israel now say.)
      Yee, many a time have they fought against me from my youth up, but they have not overcome me. The plowers plowed upon my back, and made long furrows.
      But the righteous Lord hath hewn the yoke of the ungodly in pieces.
      Let them be confounded and turned backward, as many as have evil will at *Sion.
      Let them be even as the hay upon the house tops, which withereth afore it be plucked up. Whereof the mower filleth not his hand, neither he that bindeth up the sheaves, his bosom.
      So that they which go by, say not so much as: the Lord prosper you, we wish you good luck in the name of the Lord.

 

 

 

Chapter 130

The song of the stairs.

      Out of the deep call I unto thee, O' Lord, Lord, hear my voice.
      Oh let thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint.
      If thou, Lord wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss,
      Oh Lord who may abide it?
      But there is mercy with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
      I look for the Lord, my soul doth wait for him, and in his word is my trust.
      My soul doth patiently abide the Lord, from the one morning to the other.
      Let Israel trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy
      and plenteous redemption.
      And he shall redeem Israel from all his sins.

 

 

 

Chapter 131

The song of the stairs.
      
      Lord, I a not high minded, I have no proud looks.
      I do not exercise myself in great matters, which are too high for me.

      Let Israel trust in the Lord, from this time forth for evermore.

 

 

 

Chapter 132

The song of the stairs.

      Lord, remember David and all his trouble.
      How he swore unto the Lord, and vowed a vow unto the allmighty one of Jacob: I will not come within the tabernacle of my house, nor climb up in my bed. I will not suffer mine eyes to sleep, nor mine eyelids to slumber.
      Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty one of Jacob.
      Lo, we heard of the same at *Ephrata, and found it in the wood.
      We will go into his tabernacle, and fall down before his footstool.
      Arise, O' Lord, into thy *resting place, thou and the ark of thy strength.
      Let thy Priests be clothed with righteousness, and let thy saints rejoice.
      For thy servant Davids sake *turn not away the presence of thine anointed.
      The Lord hath made an faithful oath unto David, and he will not shrink from it: Of the fruit of the body shall I set upon thy seat.
      If thy children will keep my covenant, and my testimony that I shall learn them: their children also shall sit upon thy seat for evermore.
      For the Lord hath chosen Sion, to be an habitation for himself hath he chosen her.
      This shall be my rest, here will I dwell, for I have a delight therin.
      I will bless her vitals with increase, and will satisfy her poor with bread.
      I will deck her Priests with health, and her saints shall rejoice and be glad.
      There shall I make the horn of David to flourish, I have ordained a lantern for mine anointed.
      As for his enemies, I shall clothe them with shame, but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

 

*Ephrath or Ephratah = "ash-heap: place of fruitfulness"
*His resting place was the mercy seat, as before in the Psalme 49. MN
*Turn not away the presence, that is, forsake not or disdain not the presence of thine anointed. MN

 

 

 

Chapter 133

The song of the stairs of David.

      Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is, brethren to dwell together in unity.
      It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down unto the beard: and went down to the skirts of his clothing.
      Like as the dew of *Hermon, which fell upon the hill of Sion.
      For there the Lord promised his blessing, and life forevermore.

 

*Hermon = "a sanctuary" RN

 

 

 

Chapter 134

The song of the stairs .

      Behold, O' praise the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, yee that by night stand in the house of the Lord.
      Lift up your hands in the Sanctuary, and praise the Lord.
      The Lord that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Sion.

 

 

 

Chapter 135

Praise the everlasting.
      
      Praise the name of the Lord. praise it O' ye servants of the Lord.
      Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.
      O' praise the Lord, for the Lord is gracious: O' sing praises unto his name, for it is lovely. For why ? the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his own possession.
      For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
      Whatsoever the Lord pleaseth that doth he in heaven and in earth, in the sea, and in all deep places. He bringeth forth the clouds from the ends of the world, he turneth lightings unto rain, bringing the winds out of their treasuries.
      Which smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and of beast. He hath sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O' thou land of Egypt, upon Pharaoh and all his servants.
      Which smote diverse nations, and slew mighty kings.
      Sehon King of the Amorites, Og King of Bashan, and all the Kingdoms of Canaan. And gave their land for an heritage, for an heritage unto Israel his people.
      Thy name, O' Lord, endureth for ever, so doth thy memorial, O' Lord, from one generation to another.
      For the Lord will avenge his people, and be gracious unto his servants.
      As for the images of the Heathen, they are but silver and gold, the work of mens hands.
      They have mouths, and speak not: eyes have they, but see not.
      They have ears, and yet they hear not, neither is there any breath in their mouths.
      They that make them, are like unto them, and so are all they that put their trust in them.
      Praise the Lord, ye house of Israel, praise the Lord ye house of Aaron.
      Praise the Lord, ye house of Levi, ye that fear the Lord, praise the Lord.
      Praise be the Lord out of Sion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem.

Praise the everlasting.
