A prayer of *Moses the man of God
Lord, thou art our refuge from one generations to another.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the earth and
the world were made, thou art God from everlasting and world without
Thou turnest man to destruction, Again, thou sayest: come
again ye children of men. For a thousand years in thy sight are but
as yesterday that has past, and like as it were a night watch.
As soon as thou scatterest them, they are even as asleep, and
fade away suddenly like the grass. In the morning it is green

For we consume away in thy displeasure, and are afraid at thy

after the time that thou hast plagued us, and for the years wherein
we have suffered adversity.

God, in whom I will I trust. For he shall deliver thee from the
snare of the hunter, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover
thee under his wings, that thou mayest be safe under his feathers:
his faithfulness and his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
So that thou shalt not need to be afraid for any bugs by

There shall no evil happen unto thee, neither shall any plague

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in
all thy ways.
They shall bear thee in their hands, that thou hurt not thy
foot against a stone.
Thou shalt go upon the Lion and Adder, the young Lion and the
Dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
Because he hath set his love upon me, I shall deliver him: I
shall defend him, for he hath known my name. When he calleth

With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.
A Psalme of the song for the sabbath
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing
praises unto thy name, O' most highest. To tell of thy
lovingkindness early in the morning, and of thy truth in the night
season. Upon an instrument of ten strings, upon the lute and with a
song upon the harp. For thou Lord hast made me glad through thy
works, and I will rejoice over the works of thy hands. O' Lord, how
glorious are thy works, thy thoughts are very deep.
An *unwise man will not know this, and a fool will not
That the ungodly are green as grass, and that all the works of
wickedness do flourish to be destroyed for ever.
But thou Lord O' most highest, abidest world without end.
For, lo, thine enemies, O' Lord, lo, thine enemies shall
perish, and all the workers of wickedness shall be scattered abroad.
But my horn shall be exalted like the horn of an unicorn, and shall
be anointed with fresh oil. Mine eye shall also see *his lust of
mine enemies, and mine ear shall hear *his desire of the wicked that
rise up against me.
The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree, and grow like
a Cedar of Lebanon.
Such as be planted in the house of the Lord, be fruitful,
plenteous and green.
That they may show, how true the Lord my strength is, and
there is no unrighteousness in him.
*An unwise man is he that is
unfaithful, an hypocrite, or one that mistrusteth God. Prov 12, Isa
(*my; kjv and other bibles of man use "my" here instead of "his" his
being the Lord's lust of enemies and desire of the wicked against
the choosen )
The Lord is King, he hath put on
glorious apparel, the Lord hath put on his apparel, and girded
himself with strength: he hath made the round world so sure, that it
cannot be moved. From the time forth hath thy seat been prepared,
thou art from everlasting.
The floods arise ( O' Lord ) the floods lift up their noise,
the floods lift up their waves. The waves of the sea are mighty, and
rage horribly: but yet the Lord that dwelleth on high, is mightier.
Thy testimonies, O' Lord, are very sure, holiness becometh
thine house for ever.
O' Lord God, to whom vengeance
belongeth: thou God to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself. Arise
thou judge of the world, and reward to the proud after their
deserving. How long shall the ungodly, how long shall the ungodly
triumph?How long shall all the wicked doers speak so disdainfully,
and make such proud boasting?
They smite down thy people, O' Lord, and trouble thine
They murder the widow and the stranger, and put the
*fatherless to death.
And yet they say: Tush, the Lord seeth not, the God of Jacob
regardeth it not.

eye, shall he not see?
He that *nurtureth the Heathen, and teacheth a man knowledge,

The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are but vain.
Blessed is the man, whom thou learnest, ( O' Lord ) and
teachest him in thy law.
That thou mayest givest him patience in time of adversity,
until the pit be digged up for the ungodly. For the Lord will not
fail his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
And why? judgment shall be turned again unto righteousness,
and all such as be true of heart shall follow it. Who will rise up
with me against the wicked? *who taketh my part against the evil
If the Lord had not helped me, my soul had almost been put to
When I said: My foot hath slipped, thy mercy ( O' Lord ) held
me up. In the multitude of the sorrows that I had in my heart, thy
comforts have refreshed my soul.
Wilt thou have anything to do with that fool of wickedness,
which imagineth mischief in the law? They gather them together
against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
But the Lord is my refuge, my God is the strength of my
He shall recompense them their wickedness, and destroy them in
their own malice: yee the Lord our God shall destroy them.
*Fatherless in the scripture are those that are destitute of all
things and that have no man to lean unto, or any to care for them.
Psalm 109. MN

*who taketh my part against the evil doers? kjv and other bibles of
man = "for me" against the evildoers. RN
O' Come let us praise the Lord,
let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation. Let us
come before his presence with thanksgiving, and show ourself glad in
him with psalmes.

O' come, let us worship and bowdown ourselves: Let us kneel
before the Lord our maker. For he is our God: and we are the
people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hands.
Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as
when ye provoked in the time of temptation in the wilderness. Where
your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works.
Forty years long was I grieved with that generation, and said:
they ever error in their hearts, they verily have not known my ways.
Therefore I said unto them in my wrath, that they should not
enter into my rest.
O' sing unto the Lord a new
song, sing unto the Lord all the whole earth. Sing unto the Lord,

Declare his honor among the Heathen, and his wonders among all
people. For the Lord is great, and *can not worthily be praised: he
is more to be feared then all gods. As for all the gods of the
Heathen, they be put Idols, but it is the Lord that made the
Thanksgiving and worship are before him, power and honor are

unto the Lord worship and strength. Ascribe unto the Lord the honor
of his name, *bring presents, and come into his courts.
O' worship the Lord in the *beauty of holiness, let the whole
earth stand in awe of him.
Tell it among the Heathen, that the Lord is King: and it is he
that maketh the round world so fast, that it can not be moved, and
how he shall judge the people righteously.
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad: let the
sea make a noise, yee and all that therin is. Let the field be
joyful, and all that is in it, let all the trees of the wood leap
Before the Lord, for he cometh: for he cometh to judge the
earth: yee with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the
people with his truth.
*kjv and other bibles of man: *KJ =
greatly to be praised, and KJ = *bring an offering. See this plainly
if our father is all spiritual, what presents could we offer except
those things pleasing to his heart and spirit. Also, come into the
judgement of God, not men. RN. See Psalms 86, where holiness is
trusting in the Lord, RN
The Lord is King, the earth may
be glad thereof: yee the multitude of the Isles may be glad thereof.

O' ye that love the Lord, see that ye hate the thing which is
evil: the Lord preserveth the souls of his saints, he shall deliver

Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among such as
call upon his name: these called upon the Lord, and he heard them.

A Psalme of David
My song shall be of mercy and judgment, yee unto thee ( O'
Lord ) will I sing.
Oh let me have understanding in the ways of Godliness, until
the time that thou come unto me: and so shall I walk in my house
with an innocent heart.
I will take no wicked thing in hand, I hate the sin of
unfaithfulness, it shall not cleave unto me. A froward heart shall
depart from me, I will not know a wicked person.

A prayer of the afflicted, when
he was in woe, and poured out his complain before the Lord.
Hear my *prayer, O' Lord, and let my crying come unto thee.
Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trouble incline
thine ears unto me when I call, O' hear me and that right soon. For
my days are consumed away like smoke, and my bones are burnt as it
were a fire brand.
My heart is smitten down and withered like grass, so that I
forget to eat my bread.
For the voice of my groaning, my bone will scarce cleave to my
I am become like a Pelican in the wilderness, and like an hole
in a broken wall.
I wake, and am even as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
Mine enemies revile me all the day long, they laugh me to
scorn, and are sworn together against me.
I eat ashes with my bread, and mingle my drink with weeping,
And that because of thine indignation and wrath, for thou hast taken
me up, and cast me away.
My days are gone like a shadow, and I am withered like grass.
But thou, O' Lord, endurest for ever, and thy remembrance
throughout all generations. Arise therefore and have mercy upon Sion,
for it is time to have mercy upon her, yee, the time is come.
And why? thy servants have a love to her *stones, and pitieth

Yet will I say: O' my God, take me not away in the midst of my
age: as for thy years, they endure throughout all generations.

thou shalt endure: they all shall wax old as does a garment, and as
a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed.
But thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed
shall prosper in thy sight.
*True prayer is an earnest an affectionate communication of the
heart with God, and a diligent consideration of the things that want
in us concerning the seeking of his glory and the doing of his will:

that suffer wrong.
He showed his ways unto Moses, and his works unto the children
The Lord is full of compassion and mercy, *longsuffering, and
of great goodness.
He will not always be chiding, neither will he keep his anger
forever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us
according to our wickedness.
For look how high the heaven is in comparison of the earth, so
great is his mercy also toward them that fear him. Look how wide the
east is from the west, so far hath he set our sins from us. Yee like
as a father pitieth his own children, even so is the Lord merciful
unto them that fear him.

That a man in his time is but as grass, and florisheth as a
flower of the field.

righteousness upon their childrens children.

of his dominion: praise thou the Lord, O' my soul.
*The Lord is longsuffering which is more than patience: for he not
only suffereth but also discerneth vengeance, defying the amendment
of the sinner, loving better to pardon and forgive than to punish.
Praise the Lord O' my soul: O'
Lord my God, thou art become exceedingly glorious, thou art clothed
with majesty and honor. Thou deckest thyself with light, as it were
a garment, thou spreadest out the heavens like a curtain. Thou
boltest it above with waters, thou makest the clouds thy chariot,
and goest upon the wings of the wind.
Thou makest thine angels spirits, and thy ministers flames of

moveth at any time.
Thou coveredst it with the deep like as with a garment, so
that the waters stand above the hills.
But at thy rebuke they flee, at the voice of thy thunder they
( Then are the hills seen aloft, and the valleys beneath in
their place which thou hast appointed for them) Thou hast set them
their bounds, which they may not pass, that they turn not again to
cover the earth. Thou causest the wells to spring up among the
valleys, and the waters to run among the hills.
That all the beasts of the field may have drink, and the wild
asses may quench their thirst.
Above upon the hills have the fowls of the air their
habitation, and sing among the branches. Thou waterest the hills
from above, the earth is filled with the fruits of thy works.
Thou bringest forth grass for the cattle, and green herbs for
the service of men.
Thou bringest food out of the earth: wine to make glad the
heart of man, oil to make him a cheerful countenance and bread to
strengthen mans heart.
The trees of the Lord are full of sap, even the trees of
Lebanus which he hath planted. There make the birds their nests, and
the fair hills are the dwelling place for the stork. The high hills

made them all: yee the earth is full of thy riches.
So is this great wide sea also, wherein are things creeping
and innumerable, both small and great beasts.
There go the ships over, and there is that Leviathan, whom
thou hast made, to take his pastime therein.
They wait all upon thee, that thou mayest give them meat in
When thou givest it them, they gather it: when thou openest
thine hand, they are filled with good.
But when thou hidest thy face, they are sorrowful: if thou
takest away their breath, they die, and turned again to their dust.
Again, when thou lettest thy breath go forth, they are made, and so
thou renewest the face of the earth.
The glorious majesty of the Lord endureth for ever, and the
Lord rejoiceth in his works. The earth trembleth at the look of him,
he doth but touch the hills and they smoke.
I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live, I will praise my
God while I have my being.
O' that my words might please him, for my joy is in the Lord.
As for the sinners, they shall be consumed out of the earth,
and the ungodly shall come to an end: but praise thou the Lord, O'
Praise thee everlasting.
