Chapter 23

      The Lord is my shepherd, I can want nothing.. * He feedeth me in a green pasture, and leadeth me to a fresh water. He quickeneth my soul, and bringeth me forth in the way of righteousness for his names sake. Though I should walk now in the valley of the shadow of death, yet I fear no evil, for thou art with me: thy staff and thy sheep hook comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me against mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil, and fillest my cup full.
      Oh let thy loving kindness and mercy follow me all the days of my life, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Chapter 24

      The earth is the Lords, and all that therin is: the compass of the world, and all that dwell therin. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and builded it upon the floods.
      Who shall go up in to the hill of the Lord? Or, who shall remain in his holy place?      Even he that hath innocent hands, and a clean heart: which lifteth not up his mind unto vanity, and swear not to deceive. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his savior.
      This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek thy face, O' Jacob. Selah,
      Open your gates (O ye princes ) let the everlasting doors be open, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? It is the Lord strong and mighty, even the Lord mighty in battle.
      Open your gates ( O ye princes ) let the everlasting doors be open, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? It is the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

 

 

 

Chapter 25

      Unto thee, ( O' Lord ) I lift up my soul.
      My God, I trust in thee: Oh let me not be confounded, lest mine enemies triumph over me. For all they that hope in thee shall not be ashamed: but such as be scornful dispisers without a cause, they shall be put to confusion.
      Show me thy ways, O' Lord, and teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and learn me, for thou art the God of my health, and in thee is my hope all the day long.
      Call to remembrance, O' Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses, which have been ever of old. Oh remember not the sins and offenses of my youth, but according to thy mercy think upon me, O' Lord, for thy goodness.
      O' how friendly and righteous is the Lord, therefore will he teach sinners in the way. He leadeth the simple a right, and such as be meek them learneth he his ways.
      All the ways of the Lord are mercy and faithfulness, unto such as keep his testament and covenant.
      For thy names sake, O' Lord, be merciful unto my sin, for it is great.
      Whatsoever he be that feareth the Lord? he shall show him the way that he hath chosen. His soul shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall possess the land.
      The secret of the Lord is among them that fear him, and he showeth them his covenant. Mine eyes are ever looking unto the Lord, for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
      Turn thee unto me and have mercy upon me, for I am desolate and in misery. The sorrows of my heart, are great, O bring me out of my troubles. Look upon mine adversity and misery, and forgive all my sins. Consider how mine enemies are many, and bare a malicious hate against me.       O' keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be confounded, for I have put my trust in thee. Let innocency and righteous dealing wait upon me, for my hope is in thee.
      Deliver Israel, O' God, out of all his trouble.

 

 

 

Chapter 26

      Be thou my judge, O' Lord, for I walk innocently: my trust is in the Lord, therefore shall I not fall.
      Examine me, O' Lord, and prove me: try out my reins and my heart.
      For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes, and I walk in thy truth.
      I sit not among vain persons, and have no fellowship with the deceitful.
      I hate the congregation of the wicked, and will not sit among the ungodly.
      I wash my hands with innocency, O' Lord, and so go I to thine altar.
      That I may show the voice of thy praise and tell of all thy wondrous works.
      Lord, I loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thy honor dwelleth.
      O' destroy not my soul with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodthirsty.
      In whose hands is wickedness, and their right hand is full of gifts.
      But as for me, I will walk innocently: O' deliver me, and be merciful unto me.
      My foot standeth right: I will praise thee (O' Lord ) in the congregations.

 

 

 

Chapter 27

      The Lord is my light and my health: whom then should I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life, for whom then should I be afraid?
      Therefore when the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me, to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host of men were layed against me, yet shall not my heart be afraid: and though there rose up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.
      One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require: namely, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his temple. For in the time of trouble he hath hid me in his tabernacle, yee in the secret place of his dwelling hath he kept and set me up upon a rock of stone.
      And now hath he lift up mine head above mine enemies, that compass me round about.
      Therefore will I offer in his dwelling, the oblation of thanksgiving: I will sing and speak praises unto the Lord. Harken unto my voice, O' Lord, when I cry unto thee: have mercy upon me, and hear me.       My heart speaketh unto thee, my face seeketh thee, yee Lord, thy face will I seek.
      O' hide not thy face from me, cast not thy servant off in displeasure.
      Thou art my succor {security) leave me not, neither forsake me, but the Lord hath taken me up. For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord hath taken me up. Show me thy way, O' Lord, and lead me in the right path, because of mine enemies.       Deliver me not into the wiles of mine adversaries, for there are false witnesses risen up against me, and they imagine mischief.
      Nevertheless I believe to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. O' tarry thou the Lords leisure, be strong, let thine heart be of good comfort, and wait thou still for the Lord.

 

 

 

Chapter 28

      Unto thee will I cry, O' my strong defense: think no scorn of me, lest, if thou make thee as though thou heardest not, I be come like them, that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my humble petition, when I cry unto thee, and hold up my hands toward thy holy * temple.
       O' pluck me not away among the ungodly and wicked doers, which speak friendly to their neighbors, but imagine in their hearts. Reward them according to their deeds and wickedness of their inventions. Recompense them after the works of their hands, pay them that they have deserved. For they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands: therefore he shall break them down, and not build them up.
      Praise be the Lord, for he hath heard the voice of my humble petition.
      The Lord is my strength and my shield: my heart hoped in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart dances for joy, and I will sing praises unto him. The Lord is the strength of his people, he is the defender and Savior of his anointed.
       O' help thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance: feed them, and set them up for ever.

Chapter 29

A Psalme of David.

      Ascribe unto the Lord, O ye mighty, ascribe unto the Lord worship and strength. Give the Lord the honor of his name, bow yourselves to the majesty of the Lord.
      It is the Lord that commandeth the waters: It is the glorious God that maketh the thunder: it is the Lord that ruleth the sea. The voice of the Lord is mighty in operation, the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice. The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedar trees: yea the Lord breaketh the Cedars of Lebanon. He maketh them to skip like a calf: Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn. The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire: the voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness, the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Cades. The voice of the Lord moveth the hinds and discovereth the thick bushes: in his temple shall every man speak of his honor. The Lord stilleth the water flood, and the Lord remaineth King for ever.
      The Lord shall give power unto his people, the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.

 

 

 

Chapter 30

A psalme and song of the dedication of the house, of David.

      I will magnify thee, O' Lord, for thou hast set me up, and not *suffered my foes to triumph over me.
      O' Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me. Thou Lord hast brought my soul out of hell: thou hast kept my life, where as they go down to the pit.
      Sing unto the Lord, ( O' ye saints of his ) give thanks unto him for a remembrance of his holiness. For his wrath endureth but the twinkling of an eye, and his pleasure is in life: heaviness may well endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
      As for me, when I was in prosperity I said: Tush, I shall never fall more.
      And why? thou Lord, of thy goodness hadest made my hill so strong.
      But as soon as thou turned thy face from me, I was brought in fear.
      The cried I unto thee, O' Lord, yee unto the Lord I made my prayer.
      What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to corruption?
      May the dust give thanks unto thee? Or shall it declare thy faithfulness?
      Hear, O' Lord, and have mercy upon me: Lord, be thou my helper.
      And so thou hast turned my heaviness into joy: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; That mine honor might sing praises unto thee without ceasing: O' Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

 

*in this text; suffer = "allow" as it is in many cases throughout the word of God. RN

 

 

 

Chapter 31

      In thee, O' Lord, is my trust: let me never be put to confusion, but deliver me in thy righteousness.
      Bow down thine ear to me, make hast to deliver me: be thou my strong rock, and a house of defense, that thou mayest save me. For thou art my stronghold and my castle: O' be thou my guide, and lead me for thy names sake. Draw me out of the net that they have laid *privily for me, for thou art my strength.
       Into thine hand I *comend my spirit: for thou hast delivered O' Lord thou God of truth.
      I hate them that hold of vanities, and my trust is in the Lord.
      I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble, thou hast known my soul in adversity. Thou hast not delivered me over in to the hands of the enemy, but thou hast set my feet in a large room.
      Have mercy upon me, O' Lord, for I am in trouble mine eye is consumed for very heaviness, yee my soul and my body.
      My life is waxen old with heaviness, and my years with mourning. My strength faileth me because of mine adversity, and my bones are corrupt. I am become a very reproof among all mine enemies, my neighbors and they of mine own acquaintance are afraid of me: they that see me in the street, convey themselves from me. I am clean forgotten and out of mind, as a dead man: I am become like a broken vessel.
      For I have heard the blasphemy of the multitude: every man abhoreth me: they have gathered a counsel together against me: and are purposed to take away my life.
       But my hope is in the Lord, and I say: thou art my God. My time is in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Show thy servant the light of thy countenance, help me for thy mercies sake.
      Let me not be confounded, O' Lord, for I call upon thee: let the ungodly rather be put into confusion, and brought unto the hell. Let the lying lips be put to silence, which cruelly, disdainfully, and despitefully, speak against the righteous.
      O how great and manifold is thy good, which thou hast hid for them that fear the?
      O what things bringest thou to pass for them, that put their trust in thee, even before the sons of men? Thou hidest them privily by thine own presence from the proud men, thou keepest them secretly in thy tabernacle, from the strife of tongues.
      Thanks be to the Lord, for he hath showed me marvelous great kindness in a strong city. For when the sudden fear came upon me, I said: I am cast out of thy sight.
      Nevertheless, thou heardest mine humble prayer, when I cried unto thee.
      O' love the Lord, ( all ye his saints ) for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plenteous rewardeth he the proud doer. Be strong therefore and take a good heart unto you, all ye that put your trust in the Lord.

 

*privily = privately or secretly conspire.
*comend = commend: To commit to the care of another; entrust.

 

 

 

Chapter 32

An Instruction of David.

      Blessed are they, whose unrighteousness is forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
      Blessed is the man, unto whom the Lord *imputeth no sin, in whose spirit there is no *guile.
      For while I held my tongue, my bones consumed away through my daily complaining. And because thy hand was so heavy on me both day and night, my moisture was like the drought in Summer. Selah.
      Therefore I confessed my sin unto thee, and hid not mine unrighteousness. I said: I will knowledge my offense, and accuse myself unto the Lord, and so thou forgavest me the wickedness of my sin. Selah.
      For this shall every saint make his prayer unto thee in due season, therefore shall not the great water floods come nigh him. Thou art my defense in the trouble that has come about me, O' compass thou me about also with the joy of deliverance. Selah.
      I will enform thee, and show thee the way wherein thou shalt go:* I will fasten mine eyes upon thee. Be not ye now like horses and mules, which have no understanding.
      Whose mouths thou must hold with bit and bridle, if they will not obey thee. Great plagues shall the ungodly have, but who so putteth his trust in the Lord, mercy shall compass him on every side.
      Be glad, O' ye righteous, and rejoice in the Lord, be joyful all ye that are true of heart.
 

*imputeth = as belonging to or resulting from *guile = shrewd deceptions, sneaky, beguiling fraud.
* I will fasten my eyes upon thee, that is I will see to thee by my provision, and be thy helper and comforter. MN

 

 

 

Chapter 33

      Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous, for it becometh well the trust to be thankful. Praise the Lord with harp: sing songs unto him with the *lute and an instrument of ten strings.       Sing him a new song, yee sing *lustfully unto him, and with good courage.
      For the word of the Lord is true, and all his works are faithful.
      He loveth mercy and judgment, the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
      By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, and all the Hosts of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters together as it were in a bottle, and layeth up the deep in secret.
      Let all the earth fear the Lord, and let all them that dwell in the world, stand in awe of him. For look what he sayeth, it is done: and look what he commanded, it standeth fast.
      The Lord bringeth the counsel of the Heathen to nought, and turneth devices of the people.
      But the counsel of the Lord endureth, and the thoughts of his heart from generation to generation. Blessed are the people that hold the Lord for their God, and blessed are the folk whom he hath chosen to be his heritage.
      The Lord looketh down from heaven, and beholdeth all the children of men: from his strong seat he considereth all them that dwell in the world. He only hath fashioned all the hearts of them, and knoweth all their works.
      A king is not helped by his own great host, neither is a giant saved through the might of his own strength.
      An horse is but a vain thing to save a man, it is not the power of his strength that can deliver him. Behold, the eye of the Lord looketh unto them that fear him, and put their trust in his mercy.
      That he may deliver their souls from death, and to feed them in the deare time.
      Let our soul patiently abide the Lord, for he is our help and our shield.
      So shall our heart rejoice in him, because we have hoped in his holy name.
      Let thy merciful kindness, O' Lord, be upon us, like as we put our trust in thee.

 

*lute = a stringed instrument with a body shaped like a pear cut in half and a bent neck similar to a modern guitar. Oddly, "lute" is also an ancient sealant, used to keep water from leaking out of vessels.       *lustfully = full of heartfelt desire, not to be confused with modern corruption of the word, involving lechery, carnality, or sensual wantonness. RN

 

 

 

Chapter 34

      I will always give thanks unto the Lord, his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
      My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O praise the Lord with me, and let us magnify his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, yee he delivered me out of all my fear.
      They that have a eye unto him, shall be lightened, and their faces shall not be ashamed. This poor man cried unto the Lord, and he heard him, yee and delivered him out of all his troubles. The Angel of the Lord pitcheth his tent round about him that fear him, and delivereth them.
      O taste and see how friendly the Lord is, blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
      O fear the Lord, ye that be his saints: for they that fear him, lack nothing.
      The rich shall want and suffer hunger, but they which seek the Lord, shall want no manner of thing, that is good.
      Come hither, O ye children, hearken unto me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
      Who so listeth to live, and would faine see good days.
      Let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile.
      Let him eschue evil, and do good: Let him seek peace and ensue it.
      For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers. But the face of the Lord beholdeth them that do evil, to destroy the remembrance of them out of the earth. When the righteous cry, the Lord heareth them, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.       The Lord is nigh unto them that are contrite in heart, and will help such as be of an humble spirit. Great are the troubles of the righteous, but the Lord delivereth them out of all. He keepeth all their bones, so that not one of them is broken. But misfortune shall slay the ungodly, and they that hate the righteous shall be guilty.
      The Lord delivereth the souls of his servants, and all they that put their trust in him, shall not offend.

 

 

 

Chapter 35

      Strive thou with them, O' Lord, that strive with me, fight thou against them that fight against me. Lay hand upon the shield and spear, and stand up to help me. Draw out thy sword, and stop the way against them that persecute me, say unto my soul: I am thy help. Let them be confounded and put to shame, that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion, that imagine mischief for me. Let them be as the dust before the wind, and the angel of the Lord scattering them. Let their way be dark and slippery, and the angel of the Lord to persecute them. For they have prively layed their net to destroy me without cause, yee and made a pit for my soul, which I never deserved.
      Let a sudden destruction come upon him unawares, and the net that he hath layed *prively, catch himself, that he may fall into his own mischief.
      But let my soul be joyful in the Lord, and rejoice in his help. All my bones shall say: Lord, who is like unto thee? which deliverest the poor from those that are too strong for him, yee, the poor and the needy from his robbers.
      False witnesses are risen up, and lay to my charge things that I know not. They reward me evil for good, to the great discomfort of my soul.
      Nevertheless, when they were sick, I put on a sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting, and my prayer returned into mine own bosom. I behaved myself as though it had been my friend or my brother, I went heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
      But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered them together: Yee, the very lame come together against me unawares, making *mowes at me, and cease not. With the greedy and scornful hypocritics, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
      Lord, when wilt thou look upon this?
      O' restore my soul from the wicked rumor of them, my darling from the lions. So will I give thee thanks in the great congregation, and praise thee among much people.
      O' let them not triumph over me, that are mine enemies for naught: O' let them not wink with their eyes, that hate me without a cause. And why? their coming is not for peace, but they imagine false words against the outcasts of the land.
      They gape upon me with their mouths, saying: there, there: we see it with our eyes.
      This thou seest, O' Lord: hold not thy tongue then, go not far from me, O' Lord.
      Awake Lord, and stand up: avenge thou my cause, my God, my Lord.
      Judge me, O' Lord my God, according to thy righteousness, that they triumph not over me. Let them not say in their hearts: there, there so would we have it: O' let them not say: we have overcome him. Let them be put to confusion and shame, that rejoice at my trouble: let them be clothed with rebuke and dishonor, that boost themselves against me.
      Let them also be glad and rejoice, that favor my righteous dealing: yee let them say always: blessed be the Lord, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. And as for my tongue, it shall be talking of thy righteousness and of thy praise, all the day long.

 

*prively, (by privilege, privately, in secret ) *mowes = moues (moos) mouth: a grimace indicating displeasure, German\French. RN

 

 

 

Chapter 36

To the Chaunter, of David the servant of the Lord

      My heart showeth me the wickedness of the ungodly, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he disassembleth before his face, so long till his abominable sin be found out. The words of his mouth are unrighteousness and deceit, he will not be learned to do good. He imagineth mischief upon his bed, he will come in no good way, nor refuse the thing that is evil.
      Thy mercy, O' Lord, reacheth unto the heaven, and thy faithfulness unto the clouds.
      Thy righteousness standeth like the strong mountains, and thy judgment like the great deep.
      Thou Lord preservest both men and beasts.
      How precious is thy mercy, O' God, that the children of men may put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of thy house, and thou shall give them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For by thee is the well of life, and in thy light, shall we see light.
      O' spread forth thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee, and thy righteousness unto them that are true of heart.
      O' let not the foot of pride overtake me, O' let not the hand of the ungodly cast me down.
      As for the wicked doers, they fall, they are cast down, and are not be able to stand.

 

 

 

Chapter 37

      Fret not thyself at the ungodly, be not envious against the evil doers. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and be withered even as the green herb.
      Put thou thy trust in the Lord, and be doing good: so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily it shalt feed thee. Delight thou in the Lord, and he shall give thee thy hearts desire. Commit thy way unto the Lord, set thy hope in him, and he shall bring it to pass.
      He shall make thy righteousness as clear as the light, and thy just dealing as the noonday. Hold still in the Lord, and abide patiently upon him: but grieve not thyself at one that hath prosperity, and liveth in abomination. Leave off from wrath, let go displeasure, let not thy jealousy move thee also to do evil.
      For wicked doers shall be rooted out, but they that patiently abide the Lord, shall inherit the land.
      Suffer yet a little while, and the ungodly shall be clean gone: thou shalt look after his place, and he shall be away..
      But the meek spirited shall possess the earth, and have pleasure in much rest.
      The ungodly layeth wait for the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
      But the Lord laugheth him to scorn, for he seeth that his day is coming.
      The ungodly drawn out the sword and bend their bow, to cast down the simple and poor, and to slay such as go the right way.
      Nevertheless, their sword shall go through their own heart, and their bow shall be broken.
      A small thing that the righteous hath, is better than the great riches of the ungodly.
      For the arms of the ungodly shall be broken, but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.
      The Lord knoweth the days of the godly, and their inheritance endureth for ever.
      They shall not be confounded in perilous times, and in the days of *derth they shall have enough.
      As for the ungodly, they shall perish: and when the enemies of the Lord are in their *floures, they shall consume, yee even as the smoke shall they consume away. The ungodly borroweth, and payeth not again, but the righteous is merciful and liberal.
      Such as be blessed of him, shall possess the land: and they that he curseth, shall be rooted out. The Lord ordereth a good mans going, and hath pleasure in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be hurt, for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.
      I have been young, and now am old: yet saw I never the righteous forsaken, nor his seed to seek their bread. The righteous is ever merciful, and lendeth gently, therefore shall his seed be blessed.
      Flee from evil, and do the thing that is good, so shalt thou dwell forever. For the Lord loveth the thing that is right, he forsaketh not his saints, but they shall be preserved for evermore: as for the seed of the ungodly, it shall be rooted out. Yee, the righteous shall possess the land, and dwell therin for ever. The mouth of the righteous is exercised in wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.      
      The law of his God is in his heart, therefore shall not his footsteps slide.
      The ungodly seeth the righteous, and goeth about to slay him.
      But the Lord will not leave him in his hands, nor condemn him when he is judged.
      Hope thou in the Lord, and keep his way. And he shall so promote thee, that thou shalt have the land by inheritance, and see, when the ungodly shall perish.
      I myself have seen the ungodly in great power, and flourishing like a green bay tree: but when I went by, lo, he was gone: I sought him, but he could no where be found.
      Keep innocency, and take heed unto the thing that is right, for that shall bring a man peace at the last.
      As for the transgressors, they shall perish together, and the ungodly shall be rooted out at the last.
      The help of the righteous cometh of the Lord, he is their strength in the time of trouble. The Lord shall stand by them, and save them: he shall deliver them from the ungodly, and help them, because they put their trust in him.

 


*derth (famine) *floures as flour's or flowers, that is when the unGodly will be in their "glory",

 

 

 

Chapter 38

To the Chaunter, to bring to remembrance

      Put me not to rebuke ( O' Lord) in thy anger: Oh chasten me not in thy heavy displeasure. For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore. There is no whole part in my body, because of thy displeasure: there is no rest in my bones, by reason of my sins. For mine wickednesses are gone over mine head, and are like a sore burden, too heavy for me to bear. My wounds stink and are corrupt, through my foolishness. I am brought into so great trouble and misery, that I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are clean dried up, and there is no whole part in my body. I am feeble and sore smitten, I roar for the very disquietness of my heart.
      Lord, thou knowest all my desire, and my groaning is not hid from thee. My heart panteth, my strength hath faileth me, and the light of mine eyes is gone from me. My lovers and friends stand looking upon my trouble, and my kinsmen are gone afar off. They that sought after my life, and to do me evil, speak of lies and imagine deceit all the day long.
      As for me, I was like a deaf man and heard not: as one that were dumb, not opening his mouth.
       I am become as a man that heareth not: and that can make no resistance with his mouth.
      For in thee, O' Lord, is my trust, thou shalt hear me, O' Lord my God.
      My desire is, that mine enemies triumph not over me: for if my foot slip, they rejoice greatly against me. I am ready to suffer trouble, and my heaviness is ever in my sight. For I confess my wickedness, and my sin grieveth me.
      But mine enemies live, and are mighty: and they that hate me without cause, are many in number. They that reward me evil for good, speak evil of me, because I follow the thing that is good.
      Forsake me not ( O' Lord my God ) O' go not far from me.
      Hasten thee to help me, O' Lord my *succoure.

 

*succor = assistance in time of distress; security. RN
