Chapter 39

To the Chaunter for *Jduthun, a Psalme of David.
      
      I said: I will keep my ways that I offended not in my tongue.       And so I shut my mouth, while the ungodly layed wait for me. I held my tongue, I was dumb, I kept silence, yee even from good words, but it was pain and grief to me. My heart was hot within me, I was thus musing, the fire kindled: so that I spake with my tongue, Lord, let me know mine end, and the number of my days: that I may be certified what I want.
      Behold, thou hast made my days a span long, and my life as if it were nothing before thee.
      O' how vain are all men living? Selah
      Yee every man walketh as it were a shadow, and disquieteth himself in vain: he heapeth up riches, and can not tell to whom he gathereth them.
      And now Lord wherein shall I comfort me? my hope is in thee. Deliver me from all mine offenses, and make me not a scorn unto the foolish. I kept silence, and opened not my mouth, for thou hast done it.
Turn thy plagues away from me, for I am consumed through the fear of thy hand.
      When thou punishest man for sin, thou chastenest him: so that his beauty consumeth away, like as it were a moth.
      O' how vain are all men. Selah.
      Hear my prayer O' Lord, and consider my calling: show not thyself as though thou sawest not my tears. For I am a stranger and pilgrim with thee, as all my forefathers were.
      Oh spare me a little that I may refresh myself, before I go hence, and be no more seen.

 

*Jduthun is the Hebrew name meaning "praising".

 

 

 

Chapter 40

To the chaunter , a Psalme of David.

      I waited patiently for the Lord, which inclined himself unto me: and heard my calling. He brought me out of the horrible pit, out of the mire and clay: he set my feet upon the rock, and ordered my goings. He hath put a new song in my mouth, even a thanksgiving unto our God. Many men seeing this, shall fear the Lord, and put their trust in him. Blessed is the man that setteth his hope in the Lord, and turneth not to the proud, and to such as go about with lies.
      O' Lord my God, great are thy wondrous works which thou hast done: and in thy thoughts toward us there may none likened unto thee. I would declare them, and speak of them: but they are so many, that they can not be told.
      Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not have, but a body hast thou obtained me: burntoffering and sacrifice for sin thou hast not allowed.
      Then said I: Lo, I come. In the beginning of the book it is written of me, that I should fulfill thy will O' my God, and that Iam content to do: yee, thy law is within my heart. I will preach of thy righteousness in the great congregation: Lo, I will not refrained my lips, O' Lord, and that thou knowest. I do not hide thy righteousness in my heart, my talking is of thy truth and saving health: I kept not thy loving mercy and faithfulness back from the great congregation.
      Turn not thy mercy from me, O' Lord, but let thy lovingkindness and truth always preserve me. For innumerable troubles are come about me: my sins have taken such hold upon me, that I am not able to look up: yee they are more in number than the hairs of my head, and my heart hath failed me.
      O' Lord, let it be thy pleasure to deliver me, make haste ( O' Lord )to help me.
      Let them be ashamed and confounded, that seek after my soul, to destroy it: let them fall backward and be put to confusion, that wish me evil. Let them soon be brought to shame, that cry over me: there, there.
      But let all those that seek thee, be joyful and be glad in thee: and let all such as delight in thy saving health, say always: The Lord be praised.
      As for me, I am poor and in misery, but the Lord careth for me.
      Thou art my helper and redeemer, make no long tarrying, O' my God.

 

 

 

Chapter 41

To the chaunter, a Psalme of David.

      Blessed is he, that considereth the poor: the Lord shall deliver him in time of trouble. The Lord shall preserve him, and keep him alive: he shall make him to prosper upon the earth, and shall not deliver him into the will of his enemies. The Lord shall refresh him, when he lieth sick upon his bed, yee thou makest his bed in all his sickness.
      I said: Lord be merciful unto me, heal my soul, for I have sinned against thee.
      Mine enemies speak evil upon me: when shall he die, and his name perish? Though he came in to see, yet meaned he falsehood in his heart, heaping mischief upon himself. All they that hate me, run together against me, and imagine evil against me. They have given a wicked sentence upon me: when he lieth, he shall rise up no more.
      Yee, even mine own familiar friend, whom I trusted, which did eat my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
      But be thou merciful unto me ( O' Lord ) raise thou me up, and I shall reward them.
      By this I know that thou favourest me, that my enemy shall not triumph over me. Thou hast upholden me because of my innocency, and set me before thy face for ever.
      Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, from henceforth and forever more, Amen, Amen.

 

 

 

Chapter 42

To the Chaunter, a *monition of the sons of *Korah
      
      Like as the hert panteth after the water brooks, so longeth my soul after thee, O' God. My soul is a thirst for God, yee even for the living God: when shall I come, and behold the face of God? My tears are my meat day and night, while it is daily said unto me: Where is now thy God?
      Now when I think there upon, I pour out my heart by myself: for I would *faine go hence with the multitude, and pass over with them unto the house of God, in the voice of praise and thanksgiving, among such as keep holy day.
      Why art thou so full of heaviness ( O' my soul ) and why art thou unquiet within me?
      O' put thy trust in God, for I will yet give him thanks, for the help of his countenance. My God, my soul is vexed within me: therefore I remember the land of Jordan, and the little hill of Hermonim. One deep calleth another with the voice of thy whistles, all thy waves and water floods are gone over me. The Lord hath promised his lovingkindness daily, therefore I will praise him in the night season, and make my prayer unto the God of my life.
      I will say unto God my stoney rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I thus heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me? While my bones are broken, and while mine enemies cast me in the teeth, daily saying unto me: Where is now thy God?
      Why art thou so heavy ( O' my soul )? and why art thou so disquieted within me?
       O' put thy trust in God, for I will yet thank him for the help of his countenance, and because he is my God.

 

*monition: Advice to take forewarning of something imminent

Chapter 43

      Give sentence upon me ( O' God ) and defend my cause against the ungodly people: Oh deliver me from the deceitful, and wicked man.
      For thou ( O' God ) art my strength: why hast thou shot me from thee? Why go I then so heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me?
      Oh send out thy light and thy truth, that may lead me and bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy dwelling. That I may go in to the altar of God, even unto the God which is my joy and pleasure, and upon the harp to give thanks unto thee, O' God, my God.
      Why art thou so heavy ( O' my soul )? and why art thou so disquieted within me?       O' put thy trust in God, for I will yet give him thanks for the help of his countenance, and because he is my God.

 

 

 

Chapter 44

To the Chaunter, an instruction of the sons of *Korah

      We have heard with our ears, ( O' God ) our fathers have told us, what hast done in their time of old. How thou hast driven out the Heathen with thy hand, and planted them in: how thou hast destroyed the nations and cast them out. For they got not the land in possession through their own sword, neither was it their own arm that helped them.
      But thy right hand, thine arm and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favor unto them. Thou art the King and my God, thou sendest help unto Jacob. Through thee, will we over throw our enemies: and in thy name will we tread them under, that rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, it is not my sword that shall help me.
      But it is thou that savest us from our enemies, and puttest them to confusion that hated us. We will always make our boast of God, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
      But now thou foresakest us, and puttest us to confusion, and goest not forth with our Hosts. Thou makest us to turn our backs upon our enemies, so that they which hate us, spoil our goods. Thou lettest us be eaten up like sheep, and scatterest us among the Heathen. Thou sellest thy people for nought, and takest no money for them. Thou makest us to be rebuked of our neighbors, to be laughed to scorn and had in *derision, of them that are round about us. Thou hast made us a very byword among the Heathen, and that the people shake their heads at us. My confusion is daily before me, and the shame of my face covereth me. For the voice of the slanderer and blasphemer, for the enemy and avenger.
       All this is come upon us, and yet have we not forgotten thee, nor behaved our selves unfaithfully in thy covenant. Our heart is not turned back, neither our steps gone out of thy way. For thou hast smitten us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
       If we had forgotten the name of our God, and hold up our hands to any strange God. Should not God find it out? for he knoweth the very secrets of the heart. But for thy sake are we killed all the day long, and are counted as sheep appointed to be slain.
      Up Lord, why sleepest thou, Awake, and cast us not off for ever. Wherefore hidest thou thy face? wilt thou clean forget our misery and oppression? For our soul is brought low even unto the dust, and our belly cleaveth unto the ground.
      Arise O' Lord, help us, and deliver us for thy mercies sake.

 

*Korah = baldness, something lost. *derision = contemptuous ridicule, a laughing stock RN

 

 

 

Chapter 45

To the Chaunter , upon Sosanim, an instruction of the children of Korah, a song of love.

      My heart is *inditing a good matter, I speak of that, which I have made of the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.            
      Thou art the fairest among the children of men, full of grace is thy lips, therefore God blesseth thee for ever.
       Gird thy with thy sword upon thy thigh, ( O' thou mighty ) with worship and renown. Good luck have thou with thine honor, ride on with the truth, meekness and righteousness: and thy right hand shall teach thee wonderful things. Thine arrows are sharp, the people shall be subdued unto thee, even in the middle among the kings enemies.
      Thy seat ( O' God ) endureth for ever: the scepter of thy kingdom is a right scepter. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity: wherefore God ( which is thy God ) hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments are like myrrh, Aloes and Cassia, when thou comest out of thine ivory palaces in thy beautiful glory. Kings daughters go in thy goodly array, and upon thy right hand standeth the queen in a vesture of the most fine gold.
      Hearken ( O daughter ) consider, and incline thine ear: forget thine own people, and thy fathers house.
       So shall the king have pleasure in thy beauty, for he is thy Lord, and thou shalt worship him. And the daughters of Tyre shall be there with gifts, the rich among the people shall make their supplication before thee. The kings daughter is all glorious within, her clothing is of wrought gold. She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework, and maidens after her: such as be next her shall be brought unto thee.
      With joy and gladness shall they be brought, and go into the kings palace.
      Instead of thy fathers thou hast gotten children, whom thou shalt make princes in all lands.
      I will remember thy name from one generation to another: therefore shall the people give thanks unto thee, world without end.

 

*inditing = to write, or speak for recording RN

 

 

 

Chapter 46

To the Chaunter, a song of the children of Korah upon almuth.

      In our troubles and adversity, we have found, that God is our refuge, our strength and help. Therefore will we not fear, though the earth fell, and though the hills were carried into the midst of the sea. Though the waters of the sea raged and were never so troublous, and though the mountains shook at the tempest of the same. Selah.
      For there is a flood, which with his righteousness rejoiceth the city of God, the holy dwelling of the most highest. God is in the midst of her, therefore she shall not be removed: God helpeth her, and that right early.
      The Heathen are mad, the kingdoms make much ado: but when he showeth his voice, the earth melteth away. The Lord of Hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our defense. Selah.
      O' come hither, and behold the works of the Lord, what destructions he hath brought upon the earth. He hath made wars to cease in all the world: he hath broken the bow, he hath *knapped the spear in sunder, and burnt the chariots in the fire.
       Be still then and confess that I am God: I will be exalted among the Heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our defense. Selah.

 

*knapped = To break or chip stone RN

 

 

 

Chapter 47

To the Chaunter, a song of the children of Korah

      O' clap your hands together ( all ye people ) O sing unto God with the voice of thanksgiving. For the Lord the most highest is to be feared, and is the great king upon all the earth.
      He shall subdue the people under us, and the Heathen under our feet.
      He chooseth us for an heritage, the beauty of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
      God is gone up with a merry noise, and the Lord with the sound of the trumpet.
      Sing praises, sing praises unto God: O' sing praises, sing praises unto our King.
      For God is the king of all the earth, O' sing praises unto him with understanding.
      God is king of the Heathen, God sitteth in his holy seat.
      The princes of the people are gathered together unto the God of Abraham: for God is far higher exalted, then the mighty lords of the earth.

 

 

 

Chapter 48

To the Chaunter, a song of the children of Korah

      Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised in the city of our God, even upon his holy hill. The hill of Sion is like a fair plant, whereof all the land rejoiceth: upon the north side of the city of the great king.
      God is well known in her palaces, that he is the defense of the same.
      For lo, kings are gathered, and gone by together.
      They marveled, to see such things: they were astounded, and suddenly cast down.
      Fear there came upon them, and sorrow as of a woman in travail.
      Thou shalt break the ships of the sea, through the east wind.
      Like as we have heard, so see we in the city of the Lord of Hosts,
      in the city of our God. God upholdeth the same forever. Selah.
      We wait for thy lovingkindness ( O' God ) in the midst of thy temple.
      O' God, according to thy name, so is thy praise unto the worlds end: thy right hand is full of righteousness. Oh let the mount Sion rejoice, and the daughters of Judah be glad, because of judgments.
      Walk about Sion, go round about her, and tell her towers.
      Mark well her walls, set up her houses, that it may be told them that come later.
      For this God is our God for ever and ever, and he shall always be our guide.

 

 

 

Chapter 49

To the Chaunter, a song of the children of Korah
      
      Hear this, all ye people: ponder it well, all ye that dwell upon the earth.
      High and low, rich and poor, one with another.
      My mouth shall speak of wisdom, and my heart shall *muse of understanding.
      I will incline mine ear to the parable, and show my dark speech upon the harp.
       Wherefore should I fear the evil days, when the wickedness of my heels compass me round about? They that put their trust in their good, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches.
      No man may deliver his brother, nor make agreement unto him for God.
      For it costeth more to redeem their souls, so that he must let that alone for ever.
      For it shall be seen, that such wise men shall die and perish together, as well as the ignorant and foolish, and leave their goods for others. Look what is in their houses, it continueth still: their dwelling places endure from one generation to another, and are called after their own names upon the earth. Nevertheless man abideth not in such honor, but is compared unto the brute beasts, and becometh like unto them. This way of theirs is very foolishness, and yet their posterity praise it with their mouth. Selah.
      They lie in hell like sheep, death shall gnaw upon them, and the righteous shall have dominion of them in the morning by times, their strength shall consume, and hell shall be their dwelling. But God shall deliver my soul from the power of hell, when he receiveth me. Selah.
      Be not thou afraid, when one is made rich, and the glory of his house is increased.
      For he shall carry nothing away with him when he dieth, neither shall his pomp follow him. While he liveth, he is counted an happy man: and so long as he is in prosperity, men speak good of him. But when he followeth his fathers generation, he shall never see light any more.
      When a man is in honor and hath no understanding, he is compared unto the brute beasts, and becometh like unto them.

 

*muse = to be absorbed into ones thoughts innertaining them RN

 

 

 

Chapter 50

The Psalm of *Asaph

      The Lord even the mighty God hath spoken, and called the world from the rising of the *son unto the going down of the same. Out of Sion appeareth the glorious beauty of God. Our God shall come, and not keep silence: there goeth before him a consuming fire, and a mighty tempest round about him.
      He shall call the heavens from above, and the earth, that he may judge his people.
      Gather my saints together unto me, those that set more by the covenant then by sacrifice. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God is judge himself. Selah.
      
      Hear, O my people: let me speak, let me testify among you, O Israel: I am God, even thy God.
      I reprove thee not because of thy sacrifice, thy burntofferings are always before me.
      I will take no bullocks out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
      For all the beasts of the field are mine, and thousands of cattle upon the hills.
      I know all the fowls upon the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are in my sight. If I be hungry, I will not tell thee: for the whole world is mine, and all that therin is.
      Thinkest thou, that I will eat the flesh of oxen, or drink the blood of goats?
      Offer unto God praise and thanksgiving, and pay thy *vows unto the most highest.            
      And call upon me in the time of trouble, so will I hear thee,
      and thou shalt thank me.      
      But unto the ungodly saith God: Why doest preach my laws, and takest my covenant in thy mouth? Where as thou hatest to be reformed, and cast my words behind thee. If thou seest a thief, thou runnest with him, and art partaker with the *advouters.
       Thou lettest thy mouth speak wickedness, and thy tongue paineth deceit. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother, yee and scandalize thine own mothers son.
      This thou doest, while I hold my tongue: and thinkest me to be even such one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set myself against thee.
      O consider this, ye that forget God: lest I pluck you away, and there be none to deliver you.
      Whoso offereth me thanks and praise, he honoreth me: and this is the way, whereby I will show him the saving health of God.

Chapter 51

To the chaunter, a Psalme of David, when the Prophet *Nathan came unto him, after he was gone in to *Bethsabe.
      Have mercy upon me ( O' God ) after thy goodness, and according unto thy great mercies, do away with my offenses. Wash me well from my wickedness, and cleanse me from my sin. For I knowledge my faults, and my sin is ever before me. Against thee only, against thee have I sinned, and done evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and shouldest over come when thou art judged.
      Behold, I was born in wickedness, and in sin did my mother conceive me. But lo, thou hast a pleasure in the truth, and hast showed me secret wisdom. O purge me with *Isope, and I shall be clean: wash thou me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Oh let me of joy and gladness, that the bones which thou hast broken, may rejoice. Turn my face from my sins, and put out all my misdeeds. Make me a clean heart, O' God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me. O' give me the comfort of thy help again, and establish me with thy free spirit.
      Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked, that sinners may be converted unto thee. Deliver me from bloodguiltiness O' God, thou that art the God of my health, that my tongue may praise thy righteousness. Open my lips, O' Lord, that my mouth shall show thy praise. For if thou haddest pleasure in sacrifice, I would give it thee: but thou delightest not in burntofferings.
      The sacrifice of God is a troubled spirit, a broken and a contrite heart, O' God, shalt thou not despise. O' be favorable and gracious unto Sion, that the walls of Jerusalem may be builded. For then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifice of righteousness, with burnt offerings and oblations: then shall they lay bullocks upon thine altar.

*Isope is exactly the way it appears in the text, a marginal note refers to Hyssop, which is an herb used by the ancient Hebrews for purification.

 

 

 

Chapter 52

To the chaunter, an exhortation of David when *Doeg the *Edomite came to *Saul, and showed him, saying: David is come to the house of *Abimelech.
      
      Why boastest thou thyself, thy Tyrant, thou that canest do in mischief.
      Where as the goodness of God endureth yet daily. Thy tongue imagineth wickedness, and with lies it cutteth like a sharp razor. Thou lovest ungraciousness more than good, to talk of lies more than righteousness. Selah.
      Thou lovest to speak all words that may do hurt, O thou false tongue.
      Therefore shall God clean destroy thee, smite thee in pieces, pluck thee out of thy dwelling, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
      The righteous shall see this, and fear, and laugh him to scorn. Lo, this is the man, that took not God for his strength, but trusted unto the multitude of his riches, and was mighty in his wickedness.
      As for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God, my trust is in the tender mercy of God for ever and ever. I will always thanks unto thee for that thou hast done: and will hope in thy name, for thy saints like it well.

Chapter 53

To the chaunter upon *Mahalath, an instruction of David.

      The foolish bodies say in their hearts: Tush, there is no God.
      Corrupt are they, and become abominable in their wickednesses, there is not one that doeth good. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that would understand, or seek after God. But they were all gone out of the way, they are all unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no not one. How can they have understanding, that are the workers of wickedness, eating up my people as if it were bread, and call not upon God. They are afraid, where no fear is: for God breaketh the bones of them that besiege thee: thou puttest them to confusion, for God despised them.
      Oh that the saving health were given unto Israel out of Sion: Oh that the Lord would deliver his people out of captivity.
      Then should Jacob rejoice, and Israel should be right glad.

Chapter 54

To the chaunter in Neginoth, an instruction of David when the *Zephites came and said unto Saul: David is hid among us.
       Help me ( O' God ) for thy names sake, and deliver me in thy strength. Hear my prayer, ( O' God ) consider the words of my mouth. For strangers are risen up against me, and the mighty ( which have not God before their eyes ) seek after my soul. Selah.
      But lo, God is my helper: it is he that upholdeth my soul.
      He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: and in thy truth shall thou destroy them.
      A free will offering will I give thee, and praise thy name, O Lord, because it is so comfortable. For thou hast delivered me out of all my trouble, so that mine eye seeth his desire upon mine enemies.

 

*Zephites: from the Hebrew, smelters battlement, and the root meaning to liquify, presumably with heat.

 

 

 

Chapter 55

To the chaunter in Neginoth, an instruction of David.

      Hear to my prayer, O' God, and hide not thyself from my petition.
      Take heed unto me, and hear me, how piteously I mourn and complain.
      The enemy crieth so, and the ungodly cometh on so fast: for they are minded to do me some mischief, so maliciously are they set against me. My heart is heavy within me, and the fear of death is fallen upon me. Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and an horrible dread hath overwhelmed me.
       And I said: O' that I had wings like a dove, that I might flee somewhere, and be at rest.
      Lo, then would I get me away far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
      I would make hast to escape, from the stormy wind and tempest.
      Destroy their tongues ( O' Lord ) and divide them, for I have seen unrighteousness and strife in the city. This goeth day and night about the walls, mischief and vice are in the midst of it. Wickedness is therein, deceit and guile go not out of her streets.
       If it were mine enemy that reviled me, I could bare it: or if one that *ought me evil will did threaten me, I would hide myself from him. But it is thou a my companion, my guide and mine own familiar friend. We had sweet and secret communication together, in the house of God.
      Let death come hastily upon them, and let them go down quick into hell, for wickedness is among them in their dwellings.
      As for me, I will call unto God, and the Lord shall help me.
      In the evening, and morning and at noon day will I mourn and complain: and he shall hear my voice. It is he that delivereth my soul in peace, from them that lay wait for me: for they are many against me. Yee even God that endureth forever, shall hear me, and bring them down, Selah.
      For they will not turn: and why? they fear not God.
      Yee they lay hands upon such as be at peace with him, and so they break his covenant. Their words are softer than butter, and yet they have battle in their mind: their words are smoother than oil, and yet be they very swords.
      O' cast thy burden, or care, upon the Lord, he shall nourish thee, and not leave the righteous in unquietness.
      But as for them, thou (O' God ) shalt cast down into the pit of destruction.
      The bloodthirsty and deceitful shall not live out half their days. Nevertheless my trust is in thee.

Chapter 56

To the chaunter, upon the domme stock downe: which flyeth far off, Michtam of David, *when the Philistines took him in Geth.
      
      Be merciful unto me ( O' God ) for men will tread me down: they are daily fighting and troubling me. Mine enemies tread me daily under their feet, for they be many, that proudly fight against me.
      Nevertheless, when I am afraid, I put my trust in thee.
      I will comfort myself in Gods word, yee I will hope in God, and not fear: What can the *flesh do unto me.
      They vex me daily in my words: all that they imagine, is to do me evil. They hold all together, and keep themselves close: they mark my steps, how they may catch my soul. But in vain, for it shall escape them: and why? thou ( O' God ) in thy displeasure shall cast down such people.
      Thou tellest my flittings, thou puttest my tears in thy bottle, and number them.      
      Whensoever I call upon thee, mine enemies are put to flight: whereby I know that thou art my God.
      In Gods word will I rejoice, in the Lords word will I comfort me.
      Yee in God do I trust, and am not afraid: what can man do unto me?
      Unto thee ( O' God ) will I pay my vows, unto thee will I give thanks and praise.
      For thou hast delivered my soul from death, and my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
