Psalms 1:1-36:1

1 Blessed is the man that doeth not walke in the counsell of the wicked, nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in ye seate of the scornefull: 2 But his delite is in the Lawe of the Lord, and in his Lawe doeth he meditate day and night. 3 For he shall be like a tree planted by the riuers of waters, that will bring foorth her fruite in due season: whose leafe shall not fade: so whatsoeuer he shall doe, shall prosper. 4 The wicked are not so, but as the chaffe, which the winde driueth away. 5 Therefore the wicked shall not stande in the iudgement, nor sinners in the assemblie of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous, and the way of the wicked shall perish.

Psalms 2:1-36:1

1 Why doe the heathen rage, and the people murmure in vaine? 2 The Kings of the earth band themselues, and the princes are assembled together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 3 Let vs breake their bands, and cast their cordes from vs. 4 But he that dwelleth in the heauen, shall laugh: the Lord shall haue them in derision. 5 Then shall hee speake vnto them in his wrath, and vexe them in his sore displeasure, saying, 6 Euen I haue set my King vpon Zion mine holy mountaine. 7 I will declare the decree: that is, the Lord hath said vnto me, Thou art my Sonne: this day haue I begotten thee. 8 Aske of me, and I shall giue thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the endes of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt krush them with a scepter of yron, and breake them in pieces like a potters vessell. 10 Be wise nowe therefore, ye Kings: be learned ye Iudges of the earth. 11 Serue the Lord in feare, and reioyce in trembling. 12 Kisse the sonne, least he be angry, and ye perish in the way, when his wrath shall suddenly burne. blessed are all that trust in him.

Psalms 3:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of Dauid, when he fled from his sonne Absalom. Lord, howe are mine aduersaries increased? howe many rise against me? 2 Many say to my soule, There is no helpe for him in God. Selah. 3 But thou Lord art a buckler for me: my glory, and the lifter vp of mine head. 4 I did call vnto the Lord with my voyce, and he heard me out of his holy mountaine. Selah. 5 I layed me downe and slept, and rose vp againe: for the Lord susteined me. 6 I will not be afrayde for ten thousand of the people, that should beset me round about. 7 O Lord, arise: helpe me, my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies vpon the cheeke bone: thou hast broken the teeth of the wicked. 8 Saluation belongeth vnto the Lord, and thy blessing is vpon thy people. Selah.

Psalms 4:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth. A Psalme of Dauid. Heare me when I call, O God of my righteousnes: thou hast set me at libertie, when I was in distresse: haue mercie vpon me and hearken vnto my prayer. 2 O ye sonnes of men, howe long will yee turne my glory into shame, louing vanitie, and seeking lyes? Selah. 3 For be ye sure that the Lord hath chosen to himselfe a godly man: the Lord will heare when I call vnto him. 4 Tremble, and sinne not: examine your owne heart vpon your bed, and be still. Selah. 5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousnes, and trust in the Lord. 6 Many say, Who will shewe vs any good? but Lord, lift vp the light of thy countenance vpon vs. 7 Thou hast giuen mee more ioye of heart, then they haue had, when their wheate and their wine did abound. 8 I will lay mee downe, and also sleepe in peace: for thou, Lord, onely makest me dwell in safetie.

Psalms 5:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth upon Nehiloth. A Psalme of Dauid. Heare my wordes, O Lord: vnderstande my meditation. 2 Hearken vnto the voyce of my crie, my King and my God: for vnto thee doe I pray. 3 Heare my voyce in the morning, O Lord: for in the morning will I direct me vnto thee, and I will waite. 4 For thou art not a God that loueth wickednes: neither shall euill dwell with thee. 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: for thou hatest all them that worke iniquitie. 6 Thou shalt destroy them that speake lyes: the Lord will abhorre the bloodie man and deceitfull. 7 But I wil come into thine house in the multitude of thy mercie: and in thy feare will I worship toward thine holy Temple. 8 Leade me, O Lord, in thy righteousnes, because of mine enemies: make thy way plaine before my face. 9 For no constancie is in their mouth: within, they are very corruption: their throte is an open sepulchre, and they flatter with their tongue. 10 Destroy them, O God: let them fall from their counsels: cast them out for the multitude of their iniquities, because they haue rebelled against thee. 11 And let all them that trust in thee, reioyce and triumph for euer, and couer thou them: and let them, that loue thy Name, reioyce in thee. 12 For thou Lord wilt blesse the righteous, and with fauour wilt compasse him, as with a shielde.

Psalms 6:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth on Neginoth upon the eith tune. A Psalme of Dauid. O lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chastise me in thy wrath. 2 Haue mercie vpon me, O Lord, for I am weake: O Lord heale me, for my bones are vexed. 3 My soule is also sore troubled: but Lord how long wilt thou delay? 4 Returne, O Lord: deliuer my soule: saue me for thy mercies sake. 5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the graue who shall prayse thee? 6 I fainted in my mourning: I cause my bed euery night to swimme, and water my couch with my teares. 7 Mine eye is dimmed for despight, and sunke in because of all mine enemies. 8 Away from mee all ye workers of iniquitie: for the Lord hath heard the voyce of my weeping. 9 The Lord hath heard my petition: the Lord will receiue my prayer. 10 All mine enemies shall be confounded and sore vexed: they shall be turned backe, and put to shame suddenly.

Psalms 7:1-36:1

1 Shigaion of Dauid, which he sang unto the Lord, concerning the wordes of Chush the sonne of Iemini. O Lord my God, in thee I put my trust: saue me from all that persecute me, and deliuer me, 2 Least he deuoure my soule like a lion, and teare it in pieces, while there is none to helpe. 3 O Lord my God, if I haue done this thing, if there be any wickednes in mine handes, 4 If I haue rewarded euill vnto him that had peace with mee, (yea I haue deliuered him that vexed me without cause) 5 Then let the enemie persecute my soule and take it: yea, let him treade my life downe vpon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah. 6 Arise, O Lord, in thy wrath, and lift vp thy selfe against the rage of mine enemies, and awake for mee according to the iudgement that thou hast appointed. 7 So shall the Congregation of the people compasse thee about: for their sakes therefore returne on hie. 8 The Lord shall iudge the people: Iudge thou me, O Lord, according to my righteousnesse, and according to mine innocencie, that is in mee. 9 Oh let the malice of the wicked come to an ende: but guide thou the iust: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reines. 10 My defence is in God, who preserueth the vpright in heart. 11 God iudgeth the righteous, and him that contemneth God euery day. 12 Except he turne, he hath whet his sword: he hath bent his bowe and made it readie. 13 Hee hath also prepared him deadly weapons: hee will ordeine his arrowes for them that persecute me. 14 Beholde, hee shall trauaile with wickednes: for he hath conceiued mischiefe, but he shall bring foorth a lye. 15 Hee hath made a pitte and digged it, and is fallen into the pit that he made. 16 His mischiefe shall returne vpon his owne head, and his crueltie shall fall vpon his owne pate. 17 I wil praise the Lord according to his righteousnes, and will sing praise to the Name of the Lord most high.

Psalms 8:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth on Gittith. A Psalme of Dauid. O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy Name in all the worlde! which hast set thy glory aboue the heauens. 2 Out of the mouth of babes and suckelings hast thou ordeined strength, because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemie and the auenger. 3 When I beholde thine heauens, euen the workes of thy fingers, the moone and the starres which thou hast ordeined, 4 What is man, say I, that thou art mindefull of him? and the sonne of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower then God, and crowned him with glory and worship. 6 Thou hast made him to haue dominion in the workes of thine hands: thou hast put all things vnder his feete: 7 All sheepe and oxen: yea, and the beastes of the fielde: 8 The foules of the ayre, and the fish of the sea, and that which passeth through the paths of the seas. 9 O Lord our Lord, howe excellent is thy Name in all the world!

Psalms 9:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth vpon Muth Laben. A Psalme of Dauid. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart: I will speake of all thy marueilous workes. 2 I will bee glad, and reioyce in thee: I will sing praise to thy Name, O most High, 3 For that mine enemies are turned backe: they shall fall, and perish at thy presence. 4 For thou hast maintained my right and my cause: thou art set in the throne, and iudgest right. 5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen: thou hast destroyed the wicked: thou hast put out their name for euer and euer. 6 O enemie, destructions are come to a perpetual end, and thou hast destroyed the cities: their memoriall is perished with them. 7 But the Lord shall sit for euer: hee hath prepared his throne for iudgement. 8 For he shall iudge the worlde in righteousnes, and shall iudge the people with equitie. 9 The Lord also wil be a refuge for the poore, a refuge in due time, euen in affliction. 10 And they that know thy Name, will trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not failed them that seeke thee. 11 Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion: shewe the people his workes. 12 For whe he maketh inquisition for blood, hee remembreth it, and forgetteth not the complaint of the poore. 13 Haue mercie vpon mee, O Lord: consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate mee, thou that liftest me vp from the gates of death, 14 That I may shewe all thy praises within the gates of the daughter of Zion, and reioyce in thy saluation. 15 The heathen are sunken downe in the pit that they made: in the nette that they hid, is their foote taken. 16 The Lord is knowen by executing iudgement: the wicked is snared in the worke of his owne handes. Higgaion. Selah. 17 The wicked shall turne into hell, and all nations that forget God. 18 For the poore shall not bee alway forgotten: the hope of the afflicted shall not perish for euer. 19 Vp Lord: let not man preuaile: let the heathen be iudged in thy sight. 20 Put them in feare, O Lord, that the heathen may knowe that they are but men. Selah.

Psalms 10:1-36:1

1 Why standest thou farre off, O Lord, and hidest thee in due time, euen in affliction? 2 The wicked with pride doeth persecute the poore: let them be taken in the craftes that they haue imagined. 3 For the wicked hath made boast of his owne heartes desire, and the couetous blesseth himselfe: he contemneth the Lord. 4 The wicked is so proude that hee seeketh not for God: hee thinketh alwayes, There is no God. 5 His wayes alway prosper: thy iudgements are hie aboue his sight: therefore defieth he all his enemies. 6 He saith in his heart, I shall neuer be moued, nor be in danger. 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceite and fraude: vnder his tongue is mischiefe and iniquitie. 8 He lieth in waite in the villages: in the secret places doeth hee murder the innocent: his eyes are bent against the poore. 9 He lyeth in waite secretly, euen as a lyon in his denne: he lyeth in waite to spoyle the poore: he doeth spoyle the poore, when he draweth him into his net. 10 He croucheth and boweth: therefore heaps of the poore doe fall by his might. 11 He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten, he hideth away his face, and will neuer see. 12 Arise, O Lord God: lift vp thine hande: forget not the poore. 13 Wherefore doeth the wicked contemne God? he saith in his heart, Thou wilt not regard. 14 Yet thou hast seene it: for thou beholdest mischiefe and wrong, that thou mayest take it into thine handes: the poore committeth himselfe vnto thee: for thou art the helper of the fatherlesse. 15 Breake thou the arme of the wicked and malicious: searche his wickednes, and thou shalt finde none. 16 The Lord is King for euer and euer: the heathen are destroyed foorth of his land. 17 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the poore: thou preparest their heart: thou bendest thine eare to them, 18 To iudge the fatherlesse and poore, that earthly man cause to feare no more.

Psalms 11:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. In the Lord put I my trust: howe say yee then to my soule, Flee to your mountaine as a birde? 2 For loe, the wicked bende their bowe, and make readie their arrowes vpon the string, that they may secretly shoote at them, which are vpright in heart. 3 For the foundations are cast downe: what hath the righteous done? 4 The Lord is in his holy palace: the Lordes throne is in the heauen: his eyes wil consider: his eye lids will try the children of men. 5 The Lord will try the righteous: but the wicked and him that loueth iniquitie, doeth his soule hate. 6 Vpon the wicked he shall raine snares, fire, and brimstone, and stormie tempest: this is the porcion of their cup. 7 For the righteous Lord loueth righteousnes: his countenance doeth beholde the iust.

Psalms 12:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth upon the eight tune. A Psalme of Dauid. Helpe Lord, for there is not a godly man left: for the faithfull are fayled from among the children of men. 2 They speake deceitfully euery one with his neighbour, flattering with their lips, and speake with a double heart. 3 The Lord cut off all flattering lippes, and the tongue that speaketh proude things: 4 Which haue saide, With our tongue will we preuaile: our lippes are our owne: who is Lord ouer vs? 5 Now for the oppression of the needy, and for the sighes of the poore, I will vp, sayeth the Lord, and will set at libertie him, whom the wicked hath snared. 6 The wordes of the Lord are pure wordes, as the siluer, tried in a fornace of earth, fined seuen folde. 7 Thou wilt keepe them, O Lord: thou wilt preserue him from this generation for euer. 8 The wicked walke on euery side: when they are exalted, it is a shame for the sonnes of men.

Psalms 13:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. Howe long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for euer? howe long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2 How long shall I take counsell within my selfe, hauing wearinesse dayly in mine heart? how long shall mine enemie be exalted aboue me? 3 Beholde, and heare mee, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, that I sleepe not in death: 4 Lest mine enemie say, I haue preuailed against him: and they that afflict me, reioyce when I slide. 5 But I trust in thy mercie: mine heart shall reioyce in thy saluation: I will sing to the Lord, because he hath delt louingly with me. 6

Psalms 14:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. The foole hath said in his heart, There is no God: they haue corrupted, and done an abominable worke: there is none that doeth good. 2 The Lord looked downe from heauen vpon the children of men, to see if there were any that would vnderstand, and seeke God. 3 All are gone out of the way: they are all corrupt: there is none that doeth good, no not one. 4 Doe not all the workers of iniquitie know that they eate vp my people, as they eate bread? they call not vpon the Lord. 5 There they shall be taken with feare, because God is in the generation of the iust. 6 You haue made a mocke at the counsell of the poore, because the Lord is his trust. 7 Oh giue saluation vnto Israel out of Zion: when the Lord turneth the captiuitie of his people, then Iaakob shall reioyce, and Israel shall be glad.

Psalms 15:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of Dauid. Lord, who shall dwell in thy Tabernacle? who shall rest in thine holy Mountaine? 2 He that walketh vprightly and worketh righteousnes, and speaketh the trueth in his heart. 3 He that slandereth not with his tongue, nor doeth euill to his neighbour, nor receiueth a false report against his neighbour. 4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned, but he honoureth them that feare the Lord: he that sweareth to his owne hinderance and changeth not. 5 He that giueth not his money vnto vsurie, nor taketh reward against the innocent: hee that doeth these things, shall neuer be moued.

Psalms 16:1-36:1

1 Michtam of Dauid. Preserue mee, O God: for in thee doe I trust. 2 O my soule, thou hast sayd vnto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my weldoing extendeth not to thee, 3 But to the Saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent: all my delite is in them. 4 The sorowes of them, that offer to an other god, shall be multiplied: their offerings of blood will I not offer, neither make mention of their names with my lips. 5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou shalt mainteine my lot. 6 The lines are fallen vnto me in pleasant places: yea, I haue a faire heritage. 7 I wil prayse the Lord, who hath giuen me counsell: my reines also teach me in the nightes. 8 I haue set the Lord alwayes before me: for hee is at my right hand: therefore I shall not slide. 9 Wherefore mine heart is glad and my tongue reioyceth: my flesh also doeth rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leaue my soule in the graue: neither wilt thou suffer thine holy one to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulnesse of ioy: and at thy right hand there are pleasures for euermore.

Psalms 17:1-36:1

1 The prayer of Dauid. Heare the right, O Lord, consider my crye: hearken vnto my prayer of lips vnfained. 2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence, and let thine eyes beholde equitie. 3 Thou hast prooued and visited mine heart in the night: thou hast tryed me, and foundest nothing: for I was purposed that my mouth should not offend. 4 Concerning the workes of men, by the wordes of thy lips I kept mee from the paths of the cruell man. 5 Stay my steps in thy paths, that my feete doe not slide. 6 I haue called vpon thee: surely thou wilt heare me, O God: incline thine eare to me, and hearken vnto my wordes. 7 Shewe thy marueilous mercies, thou that art the Sauiour of them that trust in thee, from such as resist thy right hand. 8 Keepe me as the apple of the eye: hide me vnder the shadowe of thy wings, 9 From the wicked that oppresse mee, from mine enemies, which compasse me round about for my soule. 10 They are inclosed in their owne fat, and they haue spoken proudely with their mouth. 11 They haue compassed vs now in our steps: they haue set their eyes to bring downe to the ground: 12 Like as a lyon that is greedy of pray, and as it were a lyons whelp lurking in secret places. 13 Vp Lord, disappoint him: cast him downe: deliuer my soule from the wicked with thy sworde, 14 From men by thine hand, O Lord, from men of the world, who haue their portion in this life, whose bellies thou fillest with thine hid treasure: their children haue ynough, and leaue the rest of their substance for their children. 15 But I will beholde thy face in righteousnes, and when I awake, I shalbe satisfied with thine image.

Psalms 18:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid the seruant of the Lord, which spake unto the Lord the wordes of this song (in the day that the Lord delivered him for the hande of all this enemies, and form the and of saul) and sayd, I will loue thee dearely, O Lord my strength. 2 The Lord is my rocke, and my fortresse, and he that deliuereth me, my God and my strength: in him will I trust, my shield, the horne also of my saluation, and my refuge. 3 I will call vpon the Lord, which is worthie to be praysed: so shall I be safe from mine enemies. 4 The sorowes of death compassed me, and the floods of wickednes made me afraide. 5 The sorowes of the graue haue compassed me about: the snares of death ouertooke me. 6 But in my trouble did I call vpon the Lord, and cryed vnto my God: he heard my voyce out of his Temple, and my crye did come before him, euen into his eares. 7 Then the earth trembled, and quaked: the foundations also of the mountaines mooued and shooke, because he was angrie. 8 Smoke went out at his nostrels, and a consuming fire out of his mouth: coales were kindled thereat. 9 He bowed the heauens also and came downe, and darkenes was vnder his feete. 10 And he rode vpon Cherub and did flie, and he came flying vpon the wings of the winde. 11 He made darkenes his secrete place, and his pauilion round about him, euen darkenesse of waters, and cloudes of the ayre. 12 At the brightnes of his presence his clouds passed, haylestones and coles of fire. 13 The Lord also thundred in the heauen, and the Highest gaue his voyce, haylestones and coales of fire. 14 Then hee sent out his arrowes and scattred them, and he increased lightnings and destroyed them. 15 And the chanels of waters were seene, and the foundations of the worlde were discouered at thy rebuking, O Lord, at the blasting of the breath of thy nostrels. 16 He hath sent downe from aboue and taken mee: hee hath drawen mee out of many waters. 17 He hath deliuered mee from my strong enemie, and from them which hate me: for they were too strong for me. 18 They preuented me in the day of my calamitie: but the Lord was my stay. 19 Hee brought mee foorth also into a large place: hee deliuered mee because hee fauoured me. 20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousnes: according to the purenes of mine hands he recompensed me: 21 Because I kept the wayes of the Lord, and did not wickedly against my God. 22 For all his Lawes were before mee, and I did not cast away his commandements from mee. 23 I was vpright also with him, and haue kept me from my wickednes. 24 Therefore the Lord rewarded me according to my righteousnesse, and according to the purenes of mine hands in his sight. 25 With the godly thou wilt shewe thy selfe godly: with the vpright man thou wilt shew thy selfe vpright. 26 With the pure thou wilt shewe thy selfe pure, and with the froward thou wilt shewe thy selfe froward. 27 Thus thou wilt saue the poore people, and wilt cast downe the proude lookes. 28 Surely thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God wil lighten my darkenes. 29 For by thee I haue broken through an hoste, and by my God I haue leaped ouer a wall. 30 The way of God is vncorrupt: the worde of the Lord is tried in the fire: he is a shield to all that trust in him. 31 For who is God besides the Lord? and who is mightie saue our God? 32 God girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way vpright. 33 He maketh my feete like hindes feete, and setteth me vpon mine high places. 34 He teacheth mine hands to fight: so that a bowe of brasse is broken with mine armes. 35 Thou hast also giuen me the shield of thy saluation, and thy right hand hath stayed me, and thy louing kindenes hath caused me to increase. 36 Thou hast enlarged my steps vnder mee, and mine heeles haue not slid. 37 I haue pursued mine enemies, and taken them, and haue not turned againe till I had consumed them. 38 I haue wounded them, that they were not able to rise: they are fallen vnder my feete. 39 For thou hast girded me with strength to battell: them, that rose against me, thou hast subdued vnder me. 40 And thou hast giuen me the neckes of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me. 41 They cryed but there was none to saue them, euen vnto the Lord, but hee answered them not. 42 Then I did beate them small as the dust before the winde: I did treade them flat as the clay in the streetes. 43 Thou hast deliuered me from the contentions of the people: thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people, whom I haue not knowen, shall serue me. 44 As soone as they heare, they shall obey me: the strangers shall be in subiection to me. 45 Strangers shall shrinke away, and feare in their priuie chambers. 46 Let the Lord liue, and blessed be my strength, and the God of my saluation be exalted. 47 It is God that giueth me power to auenge me, and subdueth the people vnder me. 48 O my deliuerer from mine enemies, euen thou hast set mee vp from them, that rose against me: thou hast deliuered mee from the cruell man. 49 Therefore I will prayse thee, O Lord, among the nations, and wil sing vnto thy Name. 50 Great deliuerances giueth hee vnto his King, and sheweth mercie to his anoynted, euen to Dauid, and to his seede for euer.

Psalms 19:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. The heauens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth ye worke of his hands. 2 Day vnto day vttereth the same, and night vnto night teacheth knowledge. 3 There is no speach nor language, where their voyce is not heard. 4 Their line is gone forth through all the earth, and their words into the endes of the world: in them hath he set a tabernacle for the sunne. 5 Which commeth forth as a bridegrome out of his chamber, and reioyceth like a mightie man to runne his race. 6 His going out is from the ende of the heauen, and his compasse is vnto the endes of ye same, and none is hid from the heate thereof. 7 The Lawe of the Lord is perfite, conuerting the soule: the testimonie of the Lord is sure, and giueth wisedome vnto the simple. 8 The statutes of the Lord are right and reioyce the heart: the commandement of the Lord is pure, and giueth light vnto the eyes. 9 The feare of the Lord is cleane, and indureth for euer: the iudgements of the Lord are trueth: they are righteous altogether, 10 And more to be desired then golde, yea, then much fine golde: sweeter also then honie and the honie combe. 11 Moreouer by them is thy seruant made circumspect, and in keeping of them there is great reward. 12 Who can vnderstand his faultes? clense me from secret fautes. 13 Keepe thy seruant also from presumptuous sinnes: let them not reigne ouer me: so shall I be vpright, and made cleane from much wickednes. 14 Let the wordes of my mouth, and the meditation of mine heart be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

Psalms 20:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. The Lord heare thee in the day of trouble: the name of ye God of Iaakob defend thee: 2 Send thee helpe from the Sanctuarie, and strengthen thee out of Zion. 3 Let him remember all thine offerings, and turne thy burnt offerings into asshes. Selah: 4 And graunt thee according to thine heart, and fulfill all thy purpose: 5 That we may reioyce in thy saluation, and set vp the banner in the Name of our God, when the Lord shall performe all thy petitions. 6 Now know I that the Lord will helpe his anointed, and will heare him from his Sanctuarie, by the mightie helpe of his right hand. 7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the Name of ye Lord our God. 8 They are brought downe and fallen, but we are risen, and stand vpright. 9 Saue Lord: let the King heare vs in the day that we call.

Psalms 21:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid. The King shall reioyce in thy strength, O Lord: yea how greatly shall he reioyce in thy saluation! 2 Thou hast giuen him his hearts desire, and hast not denyed him the request of his lips. Selah. 3 For thou diddest preuent him with liberall blessings, and didest set a crowne of pure gold vpon his head. 4 He asked life of thee, and thou gauest him a long life for euer and euer. 5 His glory is great in thy saluation: dignitie and honour hast thou laid vpon him. 6 For thou hast set him as blessings for euer: thou hast made him glad with the ioy of thy countenance. 7 Because the King trusteth in the Lord, and in the mercie of the most High, he shall not slide. 8 Thine hand shall finde out all thine enemies, and thy right hand shall finde out them that hate thee. 9 Thou shalt make them like a fierie ouen in time of thine anger: the Lord shall destroy them in his wrath, and the fire shall deuoure them. 10 Their fruite shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seede from the children of men. 11 For they intended euill against thee, and imagined mischiefe, but they shall not preuaile. 12 Therefore shalt thou put them aparte, and the strings of thy bowe shalt thou make readie against their faces. 13 Be thou exalted, O Lord, in thy strength: so will we sing and prayse thy power.

Psalms 22:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth upon Aiieleth Hasshahar. A Psalme of Dauid. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me, and art so farre from mine health, and from the wordes of my roaring? 2 O my God, I crie by day, but thou hearest not, and by night, but haue no audience. 3 But thou art holy, and doest inhabite the prayses of Israel. 4 Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didest deliuer them. 5 They called vpon thee, and were deliuered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 6 But I am a worme, and not a man: a shame of men, and the contempt of the people. 7 All they that see me, haue me in derision: they make a mowe and nod the head, saying, 8 He trusted in the Lord, let him deliuer him: let him saue him, seeing he loueth him. 9 But thou didest draw me out of ye wombe: thou gauest me hope, euen at my mothers breasts. 10 I was cast vpon thee, euen from ye wombe: thou art my God from my mothers belly. 11 Be not farre from me, because trouble is neere: for there is none to helpe me. 12 Many yong bulles haue compassed me: mightie bulles of Bashan haue closed me about. 13 They gape vpon me with their mouthes, as a ramping and roaring lyon. 14 I am like water powred out, and all my bones are out of ioynt: mine heart is like waxe: it is molten in the middes of my bowels. 15 My strength is dryed vp like a potsheard, and my tongue cleaueth to my iawes, and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 16 For dogges haue compassed me, and the assemblie of the wicked haue inclosed me: they perced mine hands and my feete. 17 I may tell all my bones: yet they beholde, and looke vpon me. 18 They part my garments among them, and cast lottes vpon my vesture. 19 But be thou not farre off, O Lord, my strength: hasten to helpe me. 20 Deliuer my soule from the sword: my desolate soule from the power of the dogge. 21 Saue me from the lyons mouth, and answere me in sauing me from the hornes of the vnicornes. 22 I wil declare thy Name vnto my brethren: in the middes of the Congregation will I praise thee, saying, 23 Prayse the Lord, ye that feare him: magnifie ye him, all the seede of Iaakob, and feare ye him, all the seede of Israel. 24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred ye affliction of the poore: neither hath he hid his face from him, but when he called vnto him, he heard. 25 My prayse shalbe of thee in the great Congregation: my vowes will I perfourme before them that feare him. 26 The poore shall eate and be satisfied: they that seeke after the Lord, shall prayse him: your heart shall liue for euer. 27 All the endes of the worlde shall remember themselues, and turne to the Lord: and all the kinreds of the nations shall worship before thee. 28 For the kingdome is the Lords, and he ruleth among the nations. 29 All they that be fat in the earth, shall eate and worship: all they that go downe into the dust, shall bowe before him, euen he that cannot quicken his owne soule. 30 Their seede shall serue him: it shalbe counted vnto the Lord for a generation. 31 They shall come, and shall declare his righteousnesse vnto a people that shall be borne, because he hath done it.

Psalms 23:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. The Lord is my shepheard, I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to rest in greene pasture, and leadeth me by the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soule, and leadeth me in the paths of righteousnesse for his Names sake. 4 Yea, though I should walke through the valley of the shadowe of death, I will feare no euill: for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staffe, they comfort me. 5 Thou doest prepare a table before me in the sight of mine aduersaries: thou doest anoynt mine head with oyle, and my cuppe runneth ouer. 6 Doubtlesse kindnesse and mercie shall follow me all the dayes of my life, and I shall remaine a long season in the house of the Lord.

Psalms 24:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. The earth is the Lordes, and all that therein is: the worlde and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it vpon the seas: and established it vpon the floods. 3 Who shall ascende into the mountaine of the Lord? and who shall stand in his holy place? 4 Euen he that hath innocent handes, and a pure heart: which hath not lift vp his minde vnto vanitie, nor sworne deceitfully. 5 He shall receiue a blessing from the Lord, and righteousnesse from the God of his saluation. 6 This is the generation of them that seeke him, of them that seeke thy face, this is Iaakob. Selah. 7 Lift vp your heads ye gates, and be ye lift vp ye euerlasting doores, and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glorie? the Lord, strong and mightie, euen the Lord mightie in battell. 9 Lift vp your heads, ye gates, and lift vp your selues, ye euerlasting doores, and the King of glorie shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? the Lord of hostes, he is the King of glorie. Selah.

Psalms 25:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. Unto thee, O Lord, lift I vp my soule. 2 My God, I trust in thee: let me not be confounded: let not mine enemies reioyce ouer mee. 3 So all that hope in thee, shall not be ashamed: but let them be confounded, that transgresse without cause. 4 Shew me thy waies, O Lord, and teache me thy paths. 5 Leade me foorth in thy trueth, and teache me: for thou art the God of my saluation: in thee doe I trust all the day. 6 Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies, and thy louing kindnesse: for they haue beene for euer. 7 Remember not the sinnes of my youth, nor my rebellions, but according to thy kindenesse remember thou me, euen for thy goodnesse sake, O Lord. 8 Gracious and righteous is the Lord: therefore will he teache sinners in the way. 9 Them that be meeke, will hee guide in iudgement, and teach the humble his way. 10 All the pathes of the Lord are mercie and trueth vnto such as keepe his couenant and his testimonies. 11 For thy Names sake, O Lord, be merciful vnto mine iniquitie, for it is great. 12 What man is he that feareth the Lord? him wil he teache the way that hee shall chuse. 13 His soule shall dwell at ease, and his seede shall inherite the land. 14 The secrete of the Lord is reueiled to them, that feare him: and his couenant to giue them vnderstanding. 15 Mine eyes are euer towarde the Lord: for he will bring my feete out of the net. 16 Turne thy face vnto mee, and haue mercie vpon me: for I am desolate and poore. 17 The sorowes of mine heart are enlarged: drawe me out of my troubles. 18 Looke vpon mine affliction and my trauel, and forgiue all my sinnes. 19 Beholde mine enemies, for they are manie, and they hate me with cruell hatred. 20 Keepe my soule, and deliuer me: let me not be confounded, for I trust in thee. 21 Let mine vprightnes and equitie preserue me: for mine hope is in thee. 22 Deliuer Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Psalms 26:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. Judge me, O Lord, for I haue walked in mine innocency: my trust hath bene also in the Lord: therefore shall I not slide. 2 Proue me, O Lord, and trie mee: examine my reines, and mine heart. 3 For thy louing kindnesse is before mine eyes: therefore haue I walked in thy trueth. 4 I haue not hanted with vaine persons, neither kept companie with the dissemblers. 5 I haue hated the assemblie of the euill, and haue not companied with the wicked. 6 I will wash mine handes in innocencie, O Lord, and compasse thine altar, 7 That I may declare with the voyce of thankesgiuing, and set foorth all thy wonderous woorkes. 8 O Lord, I haue loued the habitation of thine house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. 9 Gather not my soule with the sinners, nor my life with the bloodie men: 10 In whose handes is wickednes, and their right hand is full of bribes. 11 But I will walke in mine innocencie: redeeme me therefore, and be mercifull vnto me. 12 My foote standeth in vprightnesse: I will praise thee, O Lord, in the Congregations.

Psalms 27:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. The Lord is my light and my saluation, whom shall I feare? the Lord is the strength of my life, of whome shall I be afraide? 2 When the wicked, euen mine enemies and my foes came vpon mee to eate vp my flesh; they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an hoste pitched against me, mine heart should not be afraide: though warre be raised against me, I will trust in this. 4 One thing haue I desired of the Lord, that I will require, euen that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the dayes of my life, to beholde the beautie of the Lord, and to visite his Temple. 5 For in the time of trouble hee shall hide mee in his Tabernacle: in the secrete place of his pauillion shall he hide me, and set me vp vpon a rocke. 6 And nowe shall hee lift vp mine head aboue mine enemies rounde about mee: therefore wil I offer in his Tabernacle sacrifices of ioy: I wil sing and praise the Lord. 7 Hearken vnto my voyce, O Lord, when I crie: haue mercie also vpon mee and heare mee. 8 When thou saidest, Seeke ye my face, mine heart answered vnto thee, O Lord, I will seeke thy face. 9 Hide not therefore thy face from mee, nor cast thy seruat away in displeasure: thou hast bene my succour: leaue me not, neither forsake mee, O God of my saluation. 10 Though my father and my mother shoulde forsake me, yet the Lord will gather me vp. 11 Teache mee thy way, O Lord, and leade me in a right path, because of mine enemies. 12 Giue me not vnto the lust of mine aduersaries: for there are false witnesses risen vp against me, and such as speake cruelly. 13 I should haue fainted, except I had beleeued to see the goodnes of the Lord in the land of the liuing. 14 Hope in the Lord: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart, and trust in the Lord.

Psalms 28:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. Unto thee, O Lord, doe I crie: O my strength, be not deafe toward mee, lest, if thou answere me not, I be like them that goe downe into the pit. 2 Heare the voyce of my petitions, when I crie vnto thee, when I holde vp mine handes towarde thine holy Oracle. 3 Drawe mee not away with the wicked, and with the woorkers of iniquitie: which speake friendly to their neighbours, when malice is in their hearts. 4 Reward them according to their deedes, and according to the wickednes of their inuentions: recompense them after the woorke of their handes: render them their reward. 5 For they regarde not the woorkes of the Lord, nor the operation of his handes: therefore breake them downe, and builde them not vp. 6 Praised be the Lord, for he hath heard the voyce of my petitions. 7 The Lord is my strength and my shielde: mine heart trusted in him, and I was helped: therfore mine heart shall reioyce, and with my song will I praise him. 8 The Lord is their strength, and he is the strength of the deliuerances of his anointed. 9 Saue thy people, and blesse thine inheritance: feede them also, and exalt them for euer.

Psalms 29:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David. Give vnto the Lord, ye sonnes of the mightie: giue vnto the Lord glorie and strength. 2 Giue vnto the Lord glorie due vnto his Name: worship the Lord in the glorious Sanctuarie. 3 The voyce of the Lord is vpon the waters: the God of glorie maketh it to thunder: the Lord is vpon the great waters. 4 The voyce of the Lord is mightie: the voyce of the Lord is glorious. 5 The voyce of the Lord breaketh the cedars: yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. 6 He maketh them also to leape like a calfe: Lebanon also and Shirion like a yong vnicorne. 7 The voice of the Lord deuideth the flames of sire. 8 The voice of the Lord maketh the wildernes to tremble: the Lord maketh the wildernes of Kadesh to tremble. 9 The voice of the Lord maketh the hindes to calue, and discouereth the forests: therefore in his Temple doth euery man speake of his glory. 10 The Lord sitteth vpon the flood, and the Lord doeth remaine King for euer. 11 The Lord shall giue strength vnto his people: the Lord shall blesse his people with peace.

Psalms 30:1-36:1

1 A Psalme or song of the dedication of the house of David. I will magnifie thee, O Lord: for thou hast exalted mee, and hast not made my foe to reioyce ouer me. 2 O Lord my God, I cried vnto thee, and thou hast restored me. 3 O Lord, thou hast brought vp my soule out of the graue: thou hast reuiued me from them that goe downe into the pit. 4 Sing praises vnto the Lord, ye his Saintes, and giue thankes before the remembrance of his Holinesse. 5 For he endureth but a while in his anger: but in his fauour is life: weeping may abide at euening, but ioy commeth in the morning. 6 And in my prosperitie I sayde, I shall neuer be moued. 7 For thou Lord of thy goodnes hadest made my mountaine to stande strong: but thou didest hide thy face, and I was troubled. 8 Then cried I vnto thee, O Lord, and praied to my Lord. 9 What profite is there in my blood, when I go downe to the pit? shall the dust giue thankes vnto thee? or shall it declare thy trueth? 10 Heare, O Lord, and haue mercy vpon me: Lord, be thou mine helper. 11 Thou hast turned my mourning into ioy: thou hast loosed my sacke and girded mee with gladnesse. 12 Therefore shall my tongue praise thee and not cease: O Lord my God, I will giue thankes vnto thee for euer.

Psalms 31:1-36:1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of David. In thee, O Lord, haue I put my trust: let mee neuer be confounded: deliuer me in thy righteousnesse. 2 Bowe downe thine eare to me: make haste to deliuer mee: be vnto me a stronge rocke, and an house of defence to saue me. 3 For thou art my rocke and my fortresse: therefore for thy Names sake direct mee and guide me. 4 Drawe mee out of the nette, that they haue layde priuilie for mee: for thou art my strength. 5 Into thine hand I commend my spirit: for thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of trueth. 6 I haue hated them that giue them selues to deceitfull vanities: for I trust in the Lord. 7 I wil be glad and reioyce in thy mercie: for thou hast seene my trouble: thou hast knowen my soule in aduersities, 8 And thou hast not shut me vp in the hand of the enemie, but hast set my feete at large. 9 Haue mercie vpon mee, O Lord: for I am in trouble: mine eye, my soule and my bellie are consumed with griefe. 10 For my life is wasted with heauinesse, and my yeeres with mourning: my strength faileth for my paine, and my bones are consumed. 11 I was a reproch among all mine enemies, but specially among my neighbours: and a feare to mine acquaintance, who seeing me in the streete, fled from me. 12 I am forgotten, as a dead man out of minde: I am like a broken vessell. 13 For I haue heard the rayling of great men: feare was on euery side, while they conspired together against mee, and consulted to take my life. 14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my God. 15 My times are in thine hande: deliuer mee from the hande of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. 16 Make thy face to shine vpon thy seruant, and saue me through thy mercie. 17 Let me not be confounded, O Lord: for I haue called vpon thee: let the wicked bee put to confusion, and to silence in the graue. 18 Let the lying lips be made dumme, which cruelly, proudly and spitefully speake against the righteous. 19 Howe great is thy goodnesse, which thou hast layde vp for them, that feare thee! and done to them, that trust in thee, euen before the sonnes of men! 20 Thou doest hide them priuily in thy presence from the pride of men: thou keepest them secretly in thy Tabernacle from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be the Lord: for hee hath shewed his marueilous kindenesse toward me in a strong citie. 22 Though I said in mine haste, I am cast out of thy sight, yet thou heardest the voyce of my prayer, when I cryed vnto thee. 23 Loue ye the Lord all his Saintes: for the Lord preserueth the faithfull, and rewardeth abundantly the proud doer. 24 All ye that trust in the Lord, be strong, and he shall establish your heart.

Psalms 32:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of David to give instruction. Blessed is he whose wickednes is forgiuen, and whose sinne is couered. 2 Blessed is the man, vnto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquitie, and in whose spirite there is no guile. 3 When I helde my tongue, my bones consumed, or when I roared all the day, 4 (For thine hand is heauie vpon me, day and night: and my moysture is turned into ye drought of summer. Selah) 5 Then I acknowledged my sinne vnto thee, neither hid I mine iniquitie: for I thought, I will confesse against my selfe my wickednesse vnto the Lord, and thou forgauest the punishment of my sinne. Selah. 6 Therefore shall euery one, that is godly, make his prayer vnto thee in a time, when thou mayest be founde: surely in the flood of great waters they shall not come neere him. 7 Thou art my secret place: thou preseruest me from trouble: thou compassest me about with ioyfull deliuerance. Selah. 8 I will instruct thee, and teache thee in the way that thou shalt goe, and I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not like an horse, or like a mule, which vnderstand not: whose mouthes thou doest binde with bit and bridle, least they come neere thee. 10 Many sorowes shall come to the wicked: but he, that trusteth in the Lord, mercie shall compasse him. 11 Be glad ye righteous, and reioyce in the Lord, and be ioyfull all ye, that are vpright in heart.

Psalms 33:1-36:1

1 Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for it becommeth vpright men to be thankefull. 2 Prayse the Lord with harpe: sing vnto him with viole and instrument of ten strings. 3 Sing vnto him a newe song: sing cheerefully with a loude voyce. 4 For the word of the Lord is righteous, and all his workes are faithfull. 5 He loueth righteousnesse and iudgement: the earth is full of the goodnesse of the Lord. 6 By the worde of the Lord were the heauens made, and all the hoste of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as vpon an heape, and layeth vp the depths in his treasures. 8 Let all the earth feare the Lord: let al them that dwell in the world, feare him. 9 For he spake, and it was done: he commanded, and it stood. 10 The Lord breaketh the counsell of the heathen, and bringeth to nought the deuices of the people. 11 The counsell of the Lord shall stand for euer, and the thoughts of his heart throughout all ages. 12 Blessed is that nation, whose God is the Lord: euen the people that he hath chosen for his inheritance. 13 The Lord looketh downe from heauen, and beholdeth all the children of men. 14 From the habitation of his dwelling he beholdeth all them that dwell in the earth. 15 He facioneth their hearts euery one, and vnderstandeth all their workes. 16 The King is not saued by the multitude of an hoste, neither is the mightie man deliuered by great strength. 17 A horse is a vaine helpe, and shall not deliuer any by his great strength. 18 Beholde, the eye of the Lord is vpon them that feare him, and vpon them, that trust in his mercie, 19 To deliuer their soules from death, and to preserue them in famine. 20 Our soule waiteth for the Lord: for he is our helpe and our shielde. 21 Surely our heart shall reioyce in him, because we trusted in his holy Name. 22 Let thy mercie, O Lord, be vpon vs, as we trust in thee.

Psalms 34:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of Dauid, when he changed his behauiour before Abimelech, who droue him away, and he departed. I will alway giue thankes vnto the Lord: his praise shalbe in my mouth continually. 2 My soule shall glory in the Lord: the humble shall heare it, and be glad. 3 Praise ye the Lord with me, and let vs magnifie his Name together. 4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me: yea, he deliuered me out of all my feare. 5 They shall looke vnto him, and runne to him: and their faces shall not be ashamed, saying, 6 This poore man cryed, and the Lord heard him, and saued him out of all his troubles. 7 The Angel of the Lord pitcheth round about them, that feare him, and deliuereth them. 8 Taste ye and see, howe gratious the Lord is: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 9 Feare the Lord, ye his Saintes: for nothing wanteth to them that feare him. 10 The lyons doe lacke and suffer hunger, but they, which seeke the Lord, shall want nothing that is good. 11 Come children, hearken vnto me: I will teache you the feare of the Lord. 12 What man is he, that desireth life, and loueth long dayes for to see good? 13 Keepe thy tongue from euill, and thy lips, that they speake no guile. 14 Eschewe euill and doe good: seeke peace and follow after it. 15 The eyes of the Lord are vpon the righteous, and his eares are open vnto their crie. 16 But the face of the Lord is against them that doe euill, to cut off their remembrance from the earth. 17 The righteous crie, and the Lord heareth them, and deliuereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The Lord is neere vnto them that are of a contrite heart, and will saue such as be afflicted in Spirite. 19 Great are the troubles of the righteous: but the Lord deliuereth him out of them all. 20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. 21 But malice shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous, shall perish. 22 The Lord redeemeth the soules of his seruants: and none, that trust in him, shall perish.

Psalms 35:1-36:1

1 A Psalme of Dauid. Pleade thou my cause, O Lord, with them that striue with me: fight thou against them, that fight against me. 2 Lay hand vpon the shielde and buckler, and stand vp for mine helpe. 3 Bring out also the speare and stop the way against them, that persecute me: say vnto my soule, I am thy saluation. 4 Let them be confounded and put to shame, that seeke after my soule: let them be turned backe, and brought to confusion, that imagine mine hurt. 5 Let them be as chaffe before the winde, and let the Angel of the Lord scatter them. 6 Let their way be darke and slipperie: and let the Angel of the Lord persecute them. 7 For without cause they haue hid the pit and their net for me: without cause haue they digged a pit for my soule. 8 Let destruction come vpon him at vnwares, and let his net, that he hath laid priuilie, take him: let him fall into the same destruction. 9 Then my soule shalbe ioyfull in the Lord: it shall reioyce in his saluation. 10 All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like vnto thee, which deliuerest the poore from him, that is too strong for him! yea, the poore and him that is in miserie, from him that spoyleth him! 11 Cruell witnesses did rise vp: they asked of me things that I knewe not. 12 They rewarded me euill for good, to haue spoyled my soule. 13 Yet I, when they were sicke, I was clothed with a sacke: I humbled my soule with fasting: and my praier was turned vpon my bosome. 14 I behaued my selfe as to my friend, or as to my brother: I humbled my selfe, mourning as one that bewaileth his mother. 15 But in mine aduersitie they reioyced, and gathered them selues together: the abiects assembled themselues against me, and knewe not: they tare me and ceased not, 16 With the false skoffers at bankets, gnashing their teeth against me. 17 Lord, how long wilt thou beholde this? deliuer my soule from their tumult, euen my desolate soule from the lions. 18 So will I giue thee thankes in a great Congregation: I will praise thee among much people. 19 Let not them that are mine enemies, vniustly reioyce ouer mee, neyther let them winke with the eye, that hate mee without a cause. 20 For they speake not as friendes: but they imagine deceitfull woordes against the quiet of the lande. 21 And they gaped on mee with their mouthes, saying, Aha, aha, our eye hath seene. 22 Thou hast seene it, O Lord: keepe not silence: be not farre from me, O Lord. 23 Arise and wake to my iudgement, euen to my cause, my God, and my Lord. 24 Iudge me, O Lord my God, according to thy righteousnesse, and let them not reioyce ouer mee. 25 Let them not say in their hearts, O our soule reioyce: neither let them say, We haue deuoured him. 26 Let them bee confounded, and put to shame together, that reioyce at mine hurt: let them bee clothed with confusion and shame, that lift vp themselues against me. 27 But let them be ioyful and glad, that loue my righteousnesse: yea, let them say alway, Let the Lord be magnified, which loueth the prosperitie of his seruant. 28 And my tongue shall vtter thy righteousnesse, and thy praise euery day.

Psalms 36:1-1

1 To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid, the servant of the Lord. Wickedness sayeth to the wicked man, euen in mine heart, that there is no feare of God before his eyes.

Proverbs 22:6

6 Teache a childe in the trade of his way, and when he is olde, he shall not depart from it.

Leviticus 18:1-30

1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, 2 Speake vnto the children of Israel, and say vnto them, I am the Lord your God. 3 After ye doings of the land of Egypt, wherin ye dwelt, shall ye not doe: and after the maner of the land of Canaan, whither I will bring you, shall ye not do, neither walke in their ordinances, 4 But do after my iudgements, and keepe mine ordinances, to walke therein: I am the Lord your God. 5 Ye shall keepe therefore my statutes, and my iudgements, which if a man doe, he shall then liue in them: I am the Lord. 6 None shall come neere to any of ye kinred of his flesh to vncouer her shame: I am the Lord. 7 Thou shalt not vncouer the shame of thy father, nor the shame of thy mother: for she is thy mother, thou shalt not discouer her shame. 8 The shame of thy fathers wife shalt thou not discouer: for it is thy fathers shame. 9 Thou shalt not discouer the shame of thy sister the daughter of thy father, or the daughter of thy mother, whether shee bee borne at home, or borne without: thou shalt not discouer their shame. 10 The shame of thy sonnes daughter, or of thy daughters daughter, thou shalt not, I say, vncouer their shame: for it is thy shame. 11 The shame of thy fathers wiues daughter, begotten of thy father (for she is thy sister) thou shalt not, I say, discouer her shame. 12 Thou shalt not vncouer the shame of thy fathers sister: for she is thy fathers kinswoman. 13 Thou shalt not discouer the shame of thy mothers sister: for she is thy mothers kinsewoman. 14 Thou shalt not vncouer the shame of thy fathers brother: that is, thou shalt not goe in to his wife, for she is thine aunte. 15 Thou shalt not discouer the shame of thy daughter in lawe: for she is thy sonnes wife: therefore shalt thou not vncouer her shame. 16 Thou shalt not discouer the shame of thy brothers wife. for it is thy brothers shame. 17 Thou shalt not discouer the shame of the wife and of her daughter, neither shalt thou take her sonnes daughter, nor her daughters daughter, to vncouer her shame: for they are thy kinsfolkes, and it were wickednesse. 18 Also thou shalt not take a wife with her sister, during her life, to vexe her, in vncouering her shame vpon her. 19 Thou shalt not also go vnto a woman to vncouer her shame, as long as she is put apart for her disease. 20 Moreouer, thou shalt not giue thy selfe to thy neighbours wife by carnall copulation, to be defiled with her. 21 Also thou shalt not giue thy children to offer them vnto Molech, neither shalt thou defile the name of thy God: for I am the Lord. 22 Thou shalt not lie with ye male as one lieth with a woman: for it is abomination. 23 Thou shalt not also lie with any beast to bee defiled therewith, neither shall any woman stand before a beast, to lie downe thereto: for it is abomination. 24 Yee shall not defile your selues in any of these things: for in al these the nations are defiled, which I will cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I wil visit the wickednesse thereof vpon it, and the lande shall vomit out her inhabitants. 26 Ye shall keepe therefore mine ordinances, and my iudgements, and commit none of these abominations, aswell hee that is of the same countrey, as the straunger that soiourneth among you. 27 (For all these abominations haue the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled: 28 And shall not the lande spue you out if ye defile it, as it spued out the people that were before you?) 29 For whosoeuer shall commit any of these abominations, the persons that doe so, shall bee cut off from among their people. 30 Therefore shall yee keepe mine ordinances that ye do not any of the abominable customes, which haue bene done before you, and that yee defile not your selues therein: for I am the Lord your God.

2 Timothy 2:15

15 Studie to shewe thy selfe approued vnto God, a workeman that needeth not to be ashamed, diuiding the worde of trueth aright.
