Psalms 1:1-36:1

1 O the happiness of that one, who Hath not walked in the counsel of the wicked. And in the way of sinners hath not stood, And in the seat of scorners hath not sat; 2 But—in the law of Jehovah is his delight, And in His law he doth meditate by day and by night: 3 And he hath been as a tree, Planted by rivulets of water, That giveth its fruit in its season, And its leaf doth not wither, And all that he doth he causeth to prosper.
4 Not so the wicked: But—as chaff that wind driveth away! 5 Therefore the wicked rise not in judgment, Nor sinners in the company of the righteous, 6 For Jehovah is knowing the way of the righteous, And the way of the wicked is lost!

Psalms 2:1-36:1

1 Why have nations tumultuously assembled? And do peoples meditate vanity? 2 Station themselves do kings of the earth, And princes have been united together, Against Jehovah, and against His Messiah: 3 `Let us draw off Their cords, And cast from us Their thick bands.' 4 He who is sitting in the heavens doth laugh, The Lord doth mock at them. 5 Then doth He speak unto them in His anger, And in His wrath He doth trouble them: 6 `And I—I have anointed My King, Upon Zion—My holy hill.'
7 I declare concerning a statute: Jehovah said unto me, `My Son Thou art, I to-day have brought thee forth. 8 Ask of Me and I give nations—thy inheritance, And thy possession—the ends of earth. 9 Thou dost rule them with a sceptre of iron, As a vessel of a potter Thou dost crush them.'
10 And now, O kings, act wisely, Be instructed, O judges of earth, 11 Serve ye Jehovah with fear, And rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Chosen One, lest He be angry, And ye lose the way, When His anger burneth but a little, O the happiness of all trusting in Him!

Psalms 3:1-36:1

1 A Psalm of David, in his fleeing from the face of Absalom his son. Jehovah, how have my distresses multiplied! Many are rising up against me. 2 Many are saying of my soul, `There is no salvation for him in God.' Selah. 3 And Thou, O Jehovah, art a shield for me, My honour, and lifter up of my head.
4 My voice is unto Jehovah: I call: And He answereth me from his holy hill, Selah. 5 I—I have lain down, and I sleep, I have waked, for Jehovah sustaineth me. 6 I am not afraid of myriads of people, That round about they have set against me. 7 Rise, O Jehovah! save me, my God. Because Thou hast smitten All mine enemies on the cheek. The teeth of the wicked Thou hast broken. 8 Of Jehovah is this salvation; On Thy people is Thy blessing! Selah.

Psalms 4:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer with Stringed Instruments. —A Psalm of David. In my calling answer Thou me, O God of my righteousness. In adversity Thou gavest enlargement to me; Favour me, and hear my prayer. 2 Sons of men! till when is my glory for shame? Ye love a vain thing, ye seek a lie. Selah. 3 And know ye that Jehovah Hath separated a saintly one to Himself. Jehovah heareth in my calling to Him. 4 `Tremble ye, and do not sin;' Say ye thus in your heart on your bed, And be ye silent. Selah. 5 Sacrifice ye sacrifices of righteousness, And trust ye unto Jehovah.
6 Many are saying, `Who doth show us good?' Lift on us the light of Thy face, O Jehovah, 7 Thou hast given joy in my heart, From the time their corn and their wine Have been multiplied. 8 In peace together I lie down and sleep, For Thou, O Jehovah, alone, In confidence dost cause me to dwell!

Psalms 5:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer, `Concerning the Inheritances.' —A Psalm of David. My sayings hear, O Jehovah, Consider my meditation. 2 Be attentive to the voice of my cry, My king and my God, For unto Thee I pray habitually. 3 Jehovah, at morning Thou hearest my voice, At morning I set in array for Thee, And I look out. 4 For not a God desiring wickedness art Thou, Evil inhabiteth Thee not. 5 The boastful station not themselves before Thine eyes: Thou hast hated all working iniquity. 6 Thou destroyest those speaking lies, A man of blood and deceit Jehovah doth abominate.
7 And I, in the abundance of Thy kindness, I enter Thy house, I bow myself toward Thy holy temple in Thy fear. 8 O Jehovah, lead me in Thy righteousness, Because of those observing me, Make straight before me Thy way, 9 For there is no stability in their mouth. Their heart is mischiefs, An open grave is their throat, Their tongue they make smooth. 10 Declare them guilty, O God, Let them fall from their own counsels, In the abundance of their transgressions Drive them away, Because they have rebelled against Thee. 11 And rejoice do all trusting in Thee, To the age they sing, and Thou coverest them over, And those loving Thy name exult in Thee. 12 For Thou blessest the righteous, O Jehovah, As a buckler with favour dost compass him!

Psalms 6:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer with stringed instruments, on the octave. —A Psalm of David. O Jehovah, in Thine anger reprove me not, Nor in Thy fury chastise me. 2 Favour me, O Jehovah, for I am weak, Heal me, O Jehovah, For troubled have been my bones, 3 And my soul hath been troubled greatly, And Thou, O Jehovah, till when? 4 Turn back, O Jehovah, draw out my soul, Save me for Thy kindness' sake. 5 For there is not in death Thy memorial, In Sheol, who doth give thanks to Thee? 6 I have been weary with my sighing, I meditate through all the night on my bed, With my tear my couch I waste. 7 Old from provocation is mine eye, It is old because of all mine adversaries,
8 Turn from me all ye workers of iniquity, For Jehovah heard the voice of my weeping, 9 Jehovah hath heard my supplication, Jehovah my prayer receiveth. 10 Ashamed and troubled greatly are all mine enemies, They turn back—ashamed in a moment!

Psalms 7:1-36:1

1 `The Erring One,' by David, that he sung to Jehovah concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite. O Jehovah, my God, in Thee I have trusted, Save me from all my pursuers, and deliver me. 2 Lest he tear as a lion my soul, Rending, and there is no deliverer. 3 O Jehovah, my God, if I have done this, If there is iniquity in my hands, 4 If I have done my well-wisher evil, And draw mine adversary without cause, 5 An enemy pursueth my soul, and overtaketh, And treadeth down to the earth my life, And my honour placeth in the dust. Selah. 6 Rise, O Jehovah, in Thine anger, Be lifted up at the wrath of mine adversaries, And awake Thou for me: Judgment Thou hast commanded: 7 And a company of peoples compass Thee, And over it on high turn Thou back, 8 Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah, According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me, 9 Let, I pray Thee be ended the evil of the wicked, And establish Thou the righteous, And a trier of hearts and reins is the righteous God.
10 My shield is on God, Saviour of the upright in heart! 11 God is a righteous judge, And He is not angry at all times. 12 If one turn not, His sword he sharpeneth, His bow he hath trodden—He prepareth it, 13 Yea, for him He hath prepared Instruments of death, His arrows for burning pursuers He maketh. 14 Lo, he travaileth with iniquity, And he hath conceived perverseness, And hath brought forth falsehood. 15 A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth into a ditch he maketh. 16 Return doth his perverseness on his head, And on his crown his violence cometh down. 17 I thank Jehovah, According to His righteousness, And praise the name of Jehovah Most High!

Psalms 8:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer, `On the Gittith.' A Psalm of David. Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth! Who settest thine honour on the heavens. 2 From the mouths of infants and sucklings Thou hast founded strength, Because of Thine adversaries, To still an enemy and a self-avenger.
3 For I see Thy heavens, a work of Thy fingers, Moon and stars that Thou didst establish. 4 What is man that Thou rememberest him? The son of man that Thou inspectest him? 5 And causest him to lack a little of Godhead, And with honour and majesty compassest him. 6 Thou dost cause him to rule Over the works of Thy hands, All Thou hast placed under his feet. 7 Sheep and oxen, all of them, And also beasts of the field, 8 Bird of the heavens, and fish of the sea, Passing through the paths of the seas! 9 Jehovah, our Lord, How honourable Thy name in all the earth!

Psalms 9:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer, `On the Death of Labben.' —A Psalm of David. I confess, O Jehovah, with all my heart, I recount all Thy wonders, 2 I rejoice and exult in Thee, I praise Thy Name, O Most High. 3 In mine enemies turning backward, they stumble and perish from Thy face. 4 For Thou hast done my judgment and my right. Thou hast sat on a throne, A judge of righteousness. 5 Thou hast rebuked nations, Thou hast destroyed the wicked, Their name Thou hast blotted out to the age and for ever. 6 O thou Enemy, Finished have been destructions for ever, As to cities thou hast plucked up, Perished hath their memorial with them. 7 And Jehovah to the age abideth, He is preparing for judgment His throne. 8 And He judgeth the world in righteousness, He judgeth the peoples in uprightness. 9 And Jehovah is a tower for the bruised, A tower for times of adversity. 10 They trust in Thee who do know Thy name, For Thou hast not forsaken Those seeking Thee, O Jehovah.
11 Sing ye praise to Jehovah, inhabiting Zion, Declare ye among the peoples His acts, 12 For He who is seeking for blood Them hath remembered, He hath not forgotten the cry of the afflicted. 13 Favour me, O Jehovah, See mine affliction by those hating me, Thou who liftest me up from the gates of death, 14 So that I recount all Thy praise, In the gates of the daughter of Zion. I rejoice on Thy salvation. 15 Sunk have nations in a pit they made, In a net that they hid hath their foot been captured. 16 Jehovah hath been known, Judgment He hath done, By a work of his hands Hath the wicked been snared. Meditation. Selah. 17 The wicked do turn back to Sheol, All nations forgetting God. 18 For not for ever is the needy forgotten, The hope of the humble lost to the age. 19 Rise, O Jehovah, let not man be strong, Let nations be judged before Thy face. 20 Appoint, O Jehovah, a director to them, Let nations know they are men! Selah.

Psalms 10:1-36:1

1 Why, Jehovah, dost Thou stand at a distance? Thou dost hide in times of adversity, 2 Through the pride of the wicked, Is the poor inflamed, They are caught in devices that they devised. 3 Because the wicked hath boasted Of the desire of his soul, And a dishonest gainer he hath blessed, He hath despised Jehovah. 4 The wicked according to the height of his face, inquireth not. `God is not!' are all his devices. 5 Pain do his ways at all times, On high are Thy judgments before him, All his adversaries—he puffeth at them. 6 He hath said in his heart, `I am not moved,' To generation and generation not in evil. 7 Of oaths his mouth is full, And deceits, and fraud: Under his tongue is perverseness and iniquity, 8 He doth sit in an ambush of the villages, In secret places he doth slay the innocent. His eyes for the afflicted watch secretly, 9 He lieth in wait in a secret place, as a lion in a covert. He lieth in wait to catch the poor, He catcheth the poor, drawing him into his net. 10 He is bruised—he boweth down, Fallen by his mighty ones hath the afflicted. 11 He said in his heart, `God hath forgotten, He hath hid His face, He hath never seen.'
12 Arise, O Jehovah! O God, lift up Thy hand! Forget not the humble. 13 Wherefore hath the wicked despised God? He hath said in his heart, `It is not required.' 14 Thou hast seen, For Thou perverseness and anger beholdest; By giving into Thy hand, On Thee doth the afflicted leave it, Of the fatherless Thou hast been an helper. 15 Break the arm of the wicked and the evil, Seek out his wickedness, find none; 16 Jehovah is king to the age, and for ever, The nations have perished out of His land! 17 The desire of the humble Thou hast heard, O Jehovah. Thou preparest their heart; Thou causest Thine ear to attend, 18 To judge the fatherless and bruised: He addeth no more to oppress—man of the earth!

Psalms 11:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —By David. In Jehovah I trusted, how say ye to my soul, `They moved to Thy mountain for the bird? 2 For lo, the wicked tread a bow, They have prepared their arrow on the string, To shoot in darkness at the upright in heart. 3 When the foundations are destroyed, The righteous—what hath he done?
4 `Jehovah is in his holy temple: Jehovah—in the heavens is His throne. His eyes see—His eyelids try the sons of men. 5 Jehovah the righteous doth try. And the wicked and the lover of violence, Hath His soul hated, 6 He poureth on the wicked snares, fire, and brimstone, And a horrible wind is the portion of their cup. 7 For righteous is Jehovah, Righteousness He hath loved, The upright doth His countenance see!'

Psalms 12:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer, on the octave. —A Psalm of David. Save, Jehovah, for the saintly hath failed, For the stedfast have ceased From the sons of men: 2 Vanity they speak each with his neighbour, Lip of flattery! With heart and heart they speak. 3 Jehovah doth cut off all lips of flattery, A tongue speaking great things, 4 Who said, `By our tongue we do mightily: Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?' 5 Because of the spoiling of the poor, Because of the groaning of the needy, Now do I arise, saith Jehovah, I set in safety him who doth breathe for it. 6 Sayings of Jehovah are pure sayings; Silver tried in a furnace of earth refined sevenfold. 7 Thou, O Jehovah, dost preserve them, Thou keepest us from this generation to the age. 8 Around the wicked walk continually, According as vileness is exalted by sons of men!

Psalms 13:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —A Psalm of David. Till when, O Jehovah, Dost Thou forget me? —for ever? Till when dost Thou hide Thy face from me? 2 Till when do I set counsels in my soul? Sorrow in my heart daily? Till when is mine enemy exalted over me? 3 Look attentively; Answer me, O Jehovah, my God, Enlighten mine eyes, lest I sleep in death, 4 Lest mine enemy say, `I overcame him,' Mine adversaries joy when I am moved. 5 And I, in Thy kindness I have trusted, Rejoice doth my heart in Thy salvation. 6 I do sing to Jehovah, For He hath conferred benefits upon me!

Psalms 14:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —By David. A fool hath said in his heart, `God is not;' They have done corruptly, They have done abominable actions, There is not a doer of good. 2 Jehovah from the heavens Hath looked on the sons of men, To see if there is a wise one—seeking God. 3 The whole have turned aside, Together they have been filthy: There is not a doer of good, not even one.
4 Have all working iniquity not known? Those consuming my people have eaten bread, Jehovah they have not called. 5 There they have feared a fear, For God is in the generation of the righteous. 6 The counsel of the poor ye cause to stink, Because Jehovah is his refuge. 7 `Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When Jehovah doth turn back To a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoice—Israel is glad!

Psalms 15:1-36:1

1 A Psalm of David. Jehovah, who doth sojourn in Thy tent? Who doth dwell in Thy holy hill? 2 He who is walking uprightly, And working righteousness, And speaking truth in his heart. 3 He hath not slandered by his tongue, He hath not done to his friend evil; And reproach he hath not lifted up Against his neighbour. 4 Despised in his eyes is a rejected one, And those fearing Jehovah he doth honour. He hath sworn to suffer evil, and changeth not; 5 His silver he hath not given in usury, And a bribe against the innocent Hath not taken; Whoso is doing these is not moved to the age!

Psalms 16:1-36:1

1 A Secret Treasure of David. Preserve me, O God, for I did trust in Thee. 2 Thou hast said to Jehovah, `My Lord Thou art;' My good is not for thine own sake; 3 For the holy ones who are in the land, And the honourable, all my delight is in them. 4 Multiplied are their griefs, Who have hastened backward; I pour not out their libations of blood, Nor do I take up their names on my lips. 5 Jehovah is the portion of my share, and of my cup, Thou—Thou dost uphold my lot. 6 Lines have fallen to me in pleasant places, Yea, a beauteous inheritance is for me. 7 I bless Jehovah who hath counselled me; Also in the nights my reins instruct me.
8 I did place Jehovah before me continually, Because—at my right hand I am not moved. 9 Therefore hath my heart been glad, And my honour doth rejoice, Also my flesh dwelleth confidently: 10 For Thou dost not leave my soul to Sheol, Nor givest thy saintly one to see corruption. 11 Thou causest me to know the path of life; Fulness of joys is with Thy presence, Pleasant things by Thy right hand for ever!

Psalms 17:1-36:1

1 A Prayer of David. Hear, O Jehovah, righteousness, attend my cry, Give ear to my prayer, without lips of deceit. 2 From before thee my judgment doth go out; Thine eyes do see uprightly. 3 Thou hast proved my heart, Thou hast inspected by night, Thou hast tried me, Thou findest nothing; My thoughts pass not over my mouth. 4 As to doings of man, Through a word of Thy lips I have observed The paths of a destroyer; 5 To uphold my goings in Thy paths, My steps have not slidden. 6 I—I called Thee, for Thou dost answer me, O God, incline Thine ear to me, hear my speech. 7 Separate wonderfully Thy kindness, O Saviour of the confiding, By Thy right hand, from withstanders.
8 Keep me as the apple, the daughter of the eye; In shadow of Thy wings thou dost hide me. 9 From the face of the wicked who spoiled me. Mine enemies in soul go round against me. 10 Their fat they have closed up, Their mouths have spoken with pride: 11 `Our steps now have compassed him;' Their eyes they set to turn aside in the land. 12 His likeness as a lion desirous to tear, As a young lion dwelling in secret places. 13 Arise, O Jehovah, go before his face, Cause him to bend. Deliver my soul from the wicked, Thy sword, 14 From men, Thy hand, O Jehovah, From men of the world, their portion is in life, And with Thy hidden things Thou fillest their belly, They are satisfied with sons; And have left their abundance to their sucklings. 15 I—in righteousness, I see Thy face; I am satisfied, in awaking, with Thy form!

Psalms 18:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —By a servant of Jehovah, by David, who hath spoken to Jehovah the words of this song in the day Jehovah delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul, and he saith: —I love Thee, O Jehovah, my strength. 2 Jehovah is my rock, and my bulwark, And my deliverer, My God is my rock, I trust in Him: My shield, and a horn of my salvation, My high tower. 3 The `Praised One' I call Jehovah, And from my enemies I am saved. 4 Compassed me have cords of death, And streams of the worthless make me afraid. 5 Cords of Sheol have surrounded me, Before me have been snares of death. 6 In mine adversity I call Jehovah, And unto my God I cry. He heareth from His temple my voice, And My cry before Him cometh into His ears. 7 And shake and tremble doth the earth, And foundations of hills are troubled, And they shake—because He hath wrath. 8 Gone up hath smoke by His nostrils, And fire from His mouth consumeth, Coals have been kindled by it. 9 And He inclineth the heavens, and cometh down, And thick darkness is under His feet. 10 And He rideth on a cherub, and doth fly, And He flieth on wings of wind. 11 He maketh darkness His secret place, Round about Him His tabernacle, Darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies. 12 From the brightness over-against Him His thick clouds have passed on, Hail and coals of fire. 13 And thunder in the heavens doth Jehovah, And the Most High giveth forth His voice, Hail and coals of fire. 14 And He sendeth His arrows and scattereth them, And much lightning, and crusheth them. 15 And seen are the streams of waters, And revealed are foundations of the earth. From Thy rebuke, O Jehovah, From the breath of the spirit of Thine anger. 16 He sendeth from above—He taketh me, He draweth me out of many waters. 17 He delivereth me from my strong enemy, And from those hating me, For they have been stronger than I. 18 They go before me in a day of my calamity And Jehovah is for a support to me. 19 And He bringeth me forth to a large place, He draweth me out, because He delighted in me.
20 Jehovah doth recompense me According to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands, He doth return to me. 21 For I have kept the ways of Jehovah, And have not done wickedly against my God. 22 For all His judgments are before me, And His statutes I turn not from me. 23 And I am perfect with him, And I keep myself from mine iniquity. 24 And Jehovah doth return to me, According to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands, Over-against his eyes. 25 With the kind Thou showest Thyself kind, With a perfect man showest Thyself perfect. 26 With the pure Thou showest Thyself pure, And with the perverse showest Thyself a wrestler, 27 For Thou a poor people savest, And the eyes of the high causest to fall. 28 For Thou—Thou lightest my lamp, Jehovah my God enlighteneth my darkness.
29 For by Thee I run—a troop! And by my God I leap a wall. 30 God! perfect is His way, The saying of Jehovah is tried, A shield is He to all those trusting in Him. 31 For who is God besides Jehovah? And who is a rock save our God? 32 God! who is girding me with strength, And He maketh perfect my way. 33 Making my feet like hinds, And on my high places causeth me to stand. 34 Teaching my hands for battle, And a bow of brass was brought down by my arms. 35 And Thou givest to me the shield of Thy salvation, And Thy right hand doth support me, And Thy lowliness maketh me great. 36 Thou enlargest my step under me, And mine ankles have not slidden. 37 I pursue mine enemies, and overtake them, And turn back not till they are consumed. 38 I smite them, and they are not able to rise, They fall under my feet, 39 And Thou girdest me with strength for battle, Causest my withstanders to bow under me. 40 As to mine enemies—Thou hast given to me the neck, As to those hating me—I cut them off. 41 They cry, and there is no saviour, On Jehovah, and He doth not answer them. 42 And I beat them as dust before wind, As mire of the streets I empty them out. 43 Thou dost deliver me From the strivings of the people, Thou placest me for a head of nations, A people I have not known do serve me. 44 At the hearing of the ear they hearken to me, Sons of a stranger feign obedience to me, 45 Sons of a stranger fade away, And are slain out of their close places. 46 Jehovah liveth—and blessed is my rock, And exalted is the God of my salvation. 47 God—who is giving vengeance to me, And He subdueth peoples under me, 48 My deliverer from mine enemies, Above my withstanders Thou raisest me, From a man of violence dost deliver me. 49 Therefore I confess Thee among nations, O Jehovah, And to Thy name I sing praise, 50 Magnifying the salvation of His king, And doing kindness to His anointed, To David, and to his seed—unto the age!

Psalms 19:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —A Psalm of David. The heavens are recounting the honour of God, And the work of His hands The expanse is declaring. 2 Day to day uttereth speech, And night to night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech, and there are no words. Their voice hath not been heard. 4 Into all the earth hath their line gone forth, And to the end of the world their sayings, For the sun He placed a tent in them, 5 And he, as a bridegroom, goeth out from his covering, He rejoiceth as a mighty one To run the path. 6 From the end of the heavens is his going out, And his revolution is unto their ends, And nothing is hid from his heat.
7 The law of Jehovah is perfect, refreshing the soul, The testimonies of Jehovah are stedfast, Making wise the simple, 8 The precepts of Jehovah are upright, Rejoicing the heart, The command of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes, 9 The fear of Jehovah is clean, standing to the age, The judgments of Jehovah are true, They have been righteous—together. 10 They are more desirable than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; and sweeter than honey, Even liquid honey of the comb. 11 Also—Thy servant is warned by them, `In keeping them is a great reward.' 12 Errors! who doth understand? From hidden ones declare me innocent, 13 Also—from presumptuous ones keep back Thy servant, Let them not rule over me, Then am I perfect, And declared innocent of much transgression, 14 Let the sayings of my mouth, And the meditation of my heart, Be for a pleasing thing before Thee, O Jehovah, my rock, and my redeemer!

Psalms 20:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —A Psalm of David. Jehovah doth answer thee, In a day of adversity, The name of the God of Jacob doth set thee on high, 2 He doth send thy help from the sanctuary, And from Zion doth support thee, 3 He doth remember all thy presents, And thy burnt-offering doth reduce to ashes. Selah. 4 He doth give to thee according to thy heart, And all thy counsel doth fulfil. 5 We sing of thy salvation, And in the name of our God set up a banner. Jehovah doth fulfil all thy requests.
6 Now I have known That Jehovah hath saved His anointed, He answereth him from His holy heavens, With the saving might of His right hand. 7 Some of chariots, and some of horses, And we of the name of Jehovah our God Make mention. 8 They—they have bowed and have fallen, And we have risen and station ourselves upright. 9 O Jehovah, save the king, He doth answer us in the day we call!

Psalms 21:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —A Psalm of David. Jehovah, in Thy strength is the king joyful, In Thy salvation how greatly he rejoiceth. 2 The desire of his heart Thou gavest to him, And the request of his lips Thou hast not withheld. Selah. 3 For Thou puttest before him blessings of goodness, Thou settest on his head a crown of fine gold. 4 Life he hath asked from Thee, Thou hast given to him—length of days, Age-during—and for ever. 5 Great is his honour in Thy salvation, Honour and majesty Thou placest on him. 6 For Thou makest him blessings for ever, Thou dost cause him to rejoice with joy, By Thy countenance.
7 For the king is trusting in Jehovah, And in the kindness of the Most High He is not moved. 8 Thy hand cometh to all Thine enemies, Thy right hand doth find Thy haters. 9 Thou makest them as a furnace of fire, At the time of Thy presence. Jehovah in His anger doth swallow them, And fire doth devour them. 10 Their fruit from earth Thou destroyest, And their seed from the sons of men. 11 For they stretched out against Thee evil, They devised a wicked device, they prevail not, 12 For Thou makest them a butt, When Thy strings Thou preparest against their faces. 13 Be Thou exalted, O Jehovah in, Thy strength, We sing and we praise Thy might!

Psalms 22:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer, on `The Hind of the Morning.' —A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation, The words of my roaring? 2 My God, I call by day, and Thou answerest not, And by night, and there is no silence to me. 3 And Thou art holy, Sitting—the Praise of Israel. 4 In Thee did our fathers trust—they trusted, And Thou dost deliver them. 5 Unto Thee they cried, and were delivered, In Thee they trusted, and were not ashamed. 6 And I am a worm, and no man, A reproach of man, and despised of the people. 7 All beholding me do mock at me, They make free with the lip—shake the head, 8 `Roll unto Jehovah, He doth deliver him, He doth deliver him, for he delighted in him.' 9 For thou art He bringing me forth from the womb, Causing me to trust, On the breasts of my mother. 10 On Thee I have been cast from the womb, From the belly of my mother Thou art my God.
11 Be not far from me, For adversity is near, for there is no helper. 12 Many bulls have surrounded me, Mighty ones of Bashan have compassed me, 13 They have opened against me their mouth, A lion tearing and roaring. 14 As waters I have been poured out, And separated themselves have all my bones, My heart hath been like wax, It is melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 Dried up as an earthen vessel is my power, And my tongue is cleaving to my jaws. 16 And to the dust of death thou appointest me, For surrounded me have dogs, A company of evil doers have compassed me, Piercing my hands and my feet. 17 I count all my bones—they look expectingly, They look upon me, 18 They apportion my garments to themselves, And for my clothing they cause a lot to fall. 19 And Thou, O Jehovah, be not far off, O my strength, to help me haste. 20 Deliver from the sword my soul, From the paw of a dog mine only one. 21 Save me from the mouth of a lion: —And—from the horns of the high places Thou hast answered me!
22 I declare Thy name to my brethren, In the midst of the assembly I praise Thee. 23 Ye who fear Jehovah, praise ye Him, All the seed of Jacob, honour ye Him, And be afraid of Him, all ye seed of Israel. 24 For He hath not despised, nor abominated, The affliction of the afflicted, Nor hath He hidden His face from him, And in his crying unto Him He heareth. 25 Of Thee my praise is in the great assembly. My vows I complete before His fearers. 26 The humble do eat and are satisfied, Praise Jehovah do those seeking Him, Your heart doth live for ever. 27 Remember and return unto Jehovah, Do all ends of the earth, And before Thee bow themselves, Do all families of the nations, 28 For to Jehovah is the kingdom, And He is ruling among nations. 29 And the fat ones of earth have eaten, And they bow themselves, Before Him bow do all going down to dust, And he who hath not revived his soul. 30 A seed doth serve Him, It is declared of the Lord to the generation. 31 They come and declare His righteousness, To a people that is borne, that He hath made!

Psalms 23:1-36:1

1 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my shepherd, I do not lack, 2 In pastures of tender grass He causeth me to lie down, By quiet waters He doth lead me. 3 My soul He refresheth, He leadeth me in paths of righteousness, For His name's sake, 4 Also—when I walk in a valley of death-shade, I fear no evil, for Thou art with me, Thy rod and Thy staff—they comfort me. 5 Thou arrangest before me a table, Over-against my adversaries, Thou hast anointed with oil my head, My cup is full! 6 Only—goodness and kindness pursue me, All the days of my life, And my dwelling is in the house of Jehovah, For a length of days!

Psalms 24:1-36:1

1 A Psalm of David. To Jehovah is the earth and its fulness, The world and the inhabitants in it. 2 For He on the seas hath founded it, And on the floods He doth establish it.
3 Who goeth up into the hill of Jehovah? And who riseth up in His holy place? 4 The clean of hands, and pure of heart, Who hath not lifted up to vanity his soul, Nor hath sworn to deceit. 5 He beareth away a blessing from Jehovah, Righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is a generation of those seeking Him. Seeking Thy face, O Jacob! Selah.
7 Lift up, O gates, your heads, And be lifted up, O doors age-during, And come in doth the king of glory! 8 Who is this—`the king of glory?' Jehovah—strong and mighty, Jehovah, the mighty in battle. 9 Lift up, O gates, your heads, And be lifted up, O doors age-during, And come in doth the king of glory! 10 Who is He—this `king of glory?' Jehovah of hosts—He is the king of glory! Selah.

Psalms 25:1-36:1

1 By David. Unto Thee, O Jehovah, my soul I lift up. 2 My God, in Thee I have trusted, Let me not be ashamed, Let not mine enemies exult over me. 3 Also let none waiting on Thee be ashamed, Let the treacherous dealers without cause be ashamed. 4 Thy ways, O Jehovah, cause me to know, Thy paths teach Thou me. 5 Cause me to tread in Thy truth, and teach me, For Thou art the God of my salvation, Near Thee I have waited all the day. 6 Remember Thy mercies, O Jehovah, And Thy kindnesses, for from the age are they. 7 Sins of my youth, and my transgressions, Do not Thou remember. According to Thy kindness be mindful of me, For Thy goodness' sake, O Jehovah.
8 Good and upright is Jehovah, Therefore He directeth sinners in the way. 9 He causeth the humble to tread in judgment, And teacheth the humble His way. 10 All the paths of Jehovah are kindness and truth, To those keeping His covenant, And His testimonies. 11 For Thy name's sake, O Jehovah, Thou hast pardoned mine iniquity, for it is great. 12 Who is this—the man fearing Jehovah? He directeth him in the way He doth choose. 13 His soul in good doth remain, And his seed doth possess the land. 14 The secret of Jehovah is for those fearing Him, And His covenant—to cause them to know.
15 Mine eyes are continually unto Jehovah, For He bringeth out from a net my feet. 16 Turn Thou unto me, and favour me, For lonely and afflicted am I. 17 The distresses of my heart have enlarged themselves, From my distresses bring me out. 18 See mine affliction and my misery, And bear with all my sins. 19 See my enemies, for they have been many, And with violent hatred they have hated me. 20 Keep my soul, and deliver me, Let me not be ashamed, for I trusted in Thee. 21 Integrity and uprightness do keep me, For I have waited on Thee. 22 Redeem Israel, O God, from all his distresses!

Psalms 26:1-36:1

1 By David. Judge me, O Jehovah, for I in mine integrity have walked, And in Jehovah I have trusted, I slide not. 2 Try me, O Jehovah, and prove me, Purified are my reins and my heart. 3 For Thy kindness is before mine eyes, And I have walked habitually in Thy truth. 4 I have not sat with vain men, And with dissemblers I enter not. 5 I have hated the assembly of evil doers, And with the wicked I sit not.
6 I wash in innocency my hands, And I compass Thine altar, O Jehovah. 7 To sound with a voice of confession, And to recount all Thy wonders. 8 Jehovah, I have loved the habitation of Thy house, And the place of the tabernacle of Thine honour. 9 Do not gather with sinners my soul, And with men of blood my life, 10 In whose hand is a wicked device, And their right hand is full of bribes. 11 And I, in mine integrity I walk, Redeem me, and favour me. 12 My foot hath stood in uprightness, In assemblies I bless Jehovah!

Psalms 27:1-36:1

1 By David. Jehovah is my light and my salvation, Whom do I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life, Of whom am I afraid? 2 When evil doers come near to me to eat my flesh, My adversaries and mine enemies to me, They have stumbled and fallen. 3 Though a host doth encamp against me, My heart doth not fear, Though war riseth up against me, In this I am confident. 4 One thing I asked of Jehovah—it I seek. My dwelling in the house of Jehovah, All the days of my life, To look on the pleasantness of Jehovah, And to inquire in His temple. 5 For He hideth me in a tabernacle in the day of evil, He hideth me in a secret place of His tent, On a rock he raiseth me up. 6 And now, lifted up is my head, Above my enemies—my surrounders, And I sacrifice in His tent sacrifices of shouting, I sing, yea, I sing praise to Jehovah.
7 Hear, O Jehovah, my voice—I call, And favour me, and answer me. 8 To Thee said my heart `They sought my face, Thy face, O Jehovah, I seek.' 9 Hide not Thy face from me, Turn not aside in anger Thy servant, My help Thou hast been. Leave me not, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 When my father and my mother Have forsaken me, then doth Jehovah gather me. 11 Shew me, O Jehovah, Thy way, And lead me in a path of uprightness, For the sake of my beholders. 12 Give me not to the will of my adversaries, For risen against me have false witnesses, And they breathe out violence to me. 13 I had not believed to look on the goodness of Jehovah In the land of the living! 14 Look unto Jehovah—be strong, And He doth strengthen thy heart, Yea, look unto Jehovah!

Psalms 28:1-36:1

1 By David. Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, My rock, be not silent to me! Lest Thou be silent to me, And I have been compared With those going down to the pit. 2 Hear the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee, In my lifting up my hands toward thy holy oracle. 3 Draw me not with the wicked, And with workers of iniquity, Speaking peace with their neighbours, And evil in their heart. 4 Give to them according to their acting, And according to the evil of their doings. According to the work of their hands give to them. Return their deed to them. 5 For they attend not to the doing of Jehovah, And unto the work of His hands. He throweth them down, And doth not build them up.
6 Blessed is Jehovah, For He hath heard the voice of my supplications. 7 Jehovah is my strength, and my shield, In Him my heart trusted, and I have been helped. And my heart exulteth, And with my song I thank Him. 8 Jehovah is strength to him, Yea, the strength of the salvation of His anointed is He. 9 Save Thy people, and bless Thine inheritance, And feed them, and carry them to the age!

Psalms 29:1-36:1

1 A Psalm of David. Ascribe to Jehovah, ye sons of the mighty, Ascribe to Jehovah honour and strength. 2 Ascribe to Jehovah the honour of His name, Bow yourselves to Jehovah, In the beauty of holiness. 3 The voice of Jehovah is on the waters, The God of glory hath thundered, Jehovah is on many waters. 4 The voice of Jehovah is with power, The voice of Jehovah is with majesty, 5 The voice of Jehovah is shivering cedars, Yea, Jehovah shivers the cedars of Lebanon. 6 And He causeth them to skip as a calf, Lebanon and Sirion as a son of Reems, 7 The voice of Jehovah is hewing fiery flames, 8 The voice of Jehovah paineth a wilderness, Jehovah paineth the wilderness of Kadesh. 9 The voice of Jehovah paineth the oaks, And maketh bare the forests, And in His temple every one saith, `Glory.' 10 Jehovah on the deluge hath sat, And Jehovah sitteth king—to the age, 11 Jehovah strength to his people giveth, Jehovah blesseth His people with peace!

Psalms 30:1-36:1

1 A Psalm. —A song of the dedication of the house of David. I exalt Thee, O Jehovah, For Thou hast drawn me up, and hast not let mine enemies rejoice over me. 2 Jehovah my God, I have cried to Thee, And Thou dost heal me. 3 Jehovah, Thou hast brought up from Sheol my soul, Thou hast kept me alive, From going down to the pit. 4 Sing praise to Jehovah, ye His saints, And give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness, 5 For—a moment is in His anger, Life is in His good-will, At even remaineth weeping, and at morn singing.
6 And I—I have said in mine ease, `I am not moved—to the age. 7 O Jehovah, in Thy good pleasure, Thou hast caused strength to remain for my mountain,' Thou hast hidden Thy face—I have been troubled. 8 Unto Thee, O Jehovah, I call, And unto Jehovah I make supplication. 9 `What gain is in my blood? In my going down unto corruption? Doth dust thank Thee? doth it declare Thy truth? 10 Hear, O Jehovah, and favour me, O Jehovah, be a helper to me.' 11 Thou hast turned my mourning to dancing for me, Thou hast loosed my sackcloth, And girdest me with joy. 12 So that honour doth praise Thee, and is not silent, O Jehovah, my God, to the age I thank Thee!

Psalms 31:1-36:1

1 To the Overseer. —A Psalm of David. In Thee, O Jehovah, I have trusted, Let me not be ashamed to the age, In Thy righteousness deliver me. 2 Incline unto me Thine ear hastily, deliver me, Be to me for a strong rock, For a house of bulwarks to save me. 3 For my rock and my bulwark art Thou, For Thy name's sake lead me and tend me. 4 Bring me out from the net that they hid for me, For Thou art my strength. 5 Into Thy hand I commit my spirit, Thou hast redeemed me, Jehovah God of truth. 6 I have hated the observers of lying vanities, And I toward Jehovah have been confident. 7 I rejoice, and am glad in Thy kindness, In that Thou hast seen mine affliction, Thou hast known in adversities my soul. 8 And Thou hast not shut me up, Into the hand of an enemy, Thou hast caused my feet to stand in a broad place.
9 Favour me, O Jehovah, for distress is to me, Mine eye, my soul, and my body Have become old by provocation. 10 For my life hath been consumed in sorrow And my years in sighing. Feeble because of mine iniquity hath been my strength, And my bones have become old. 11 Among all mine adversaries I have been a reproach, And to my neighbours exceedingly, And a fear to mine acquaintances, Those seeing me without—fled from me. 12 I have been forgotten as dead out of mind, I have been as a perishing vessel. 13 For I have heard an evil account of many, Fear is round about. In their being united against me, To take my life they have devised, 14 And I on Thee—I have trusted, O Jehovah, I have said, `Thou art my God.' 15 In Thy hand are my times, Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from my pursuers. 16 Cause Thy face to shine on Thy servant, Save me in Thy kindness. 17 O Jehovah, let me not be ashamed, For I have called Thee, let the wicked be ashamed, Let them become silent to Sheol. 18 Let lips of falsehood become dumb, That are speaking against the righteous, Ancient sayings, in pride and contempt.
19 How abundant is Thy goodness, That Thou hast laid up for those fearing Thee, 20 Thou hast wrought for those trusting in Thee, Before sons of men. Thou hidest them in the secret place of Thy presence, From artifices of man, Thou concealest them in a tabernacle, From the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed is Jehovah, For He hath made marvellous His kindness To me in a city of bulwarks. 22 And I—I have said in my haste, `I have been cut off from before Thine eyes,' But Thou hast heard the voice of my supplications, In my crying unto Thee. 23 Love Jehovah, all ye His saints, Jehovah is keeping the faithful, And recompensing abundantly a proud doer. 24 Be strong, and He strengtheneth your heart, All ye who are waiting for Jehovah!

Psalms 32:1-36:1

1 By David. —An Instruction. O the happiness of him whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. 2 O the happiness of a man, To whom Jehovah imputeth not iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit. 3 When I have kept silence, become old have my bones, Through my roaring all the day. 4 When by day and by night Thy hand is heavy upon me, My moisture hath been changed Into the droughts of summer. Selah. 5 My sin I cause Thee to know, And mine iniquity I have not covered. I have said, `I confess concerning My transgressions to Jehovah,' And Thou—Thou hast taken away, The iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6 For this doth every saintly one pray to Thee, As the time to find. Surely at an overflowing of many waters, Unto him they come not.
7 Thou art a hiding-place for me, From distress Thou dost keep me, With songs of deliverance dost compass me. Selah. 8 I cause thee to act wisely, And direct thee in the way that thou goest, I cause mine eye to take counsel concerning thee. 9 Be ye not as a horse—as a mule, Without understanding, With bridle and bit, its ornaments, to curb, Not to come near unto thee. 10 Many are the pains of the wicked; As to him who is trusting in Jehovah, Kindness doth compass him. 11 Be glad in Jehovah, and rejoice, ye righteous, And sing, all ye upright of heart!

Psalms 33:1-36:1

1 Sing, ye righteous, in Jehovah, For upright ones praise is comely. 2 Give ye thanks to Jehovah with a harp, With psaltery of ten strings sing praise to Him, 3 Sing ye to Him a new song, Play skilfully with shouting. 4 For upright is the word of Jehovah, And all His work is in faithfulness. 5 Loving righteousness and judgment, Of the kindness of Jehovah is the earth full. 6 By the word of Jehovah The heavens have been made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host. 7 Gathering as a heap the waters of the sea, Putting in treasuries the depths. 8 Afraid of Jehovah are all the earth, Of Him are all the inhabitants of the world afraid. 9 For He hath said, and it is, He hath commanded, and it standeth. 10 Jehovah made void the counsel of nations, He disallowed the thoughts of the peoples. 11 The counsel of Jehovah to the age standeth, The thoughts of His heart to all generations.
12 O the happiness of the nation whose God is Jehovah, Of the people He did choose, For an inheritance to Him. 13 From the heavens hath Jehovah looked, He hath seen all the sons of men. 14 From the fixed place of His dwelling, He looked unto all inhabitants of the earth; 15 Who is forming their hearts together, Who is attending unto all their works. 16 The king is not saved by the multitude of a force. A mighty man is not delivered, By abundance of power. 17 A false thing is the horse for safety, And by the abundance of his strength He doth not deliver. 18 Lo, the eye of Jehovah is to those fearing Him, To those waiting for His kindness, 19 To deliver from death their soul, And to keep them alive in famine. 20 Our soul hath waited for Jehovah, Our help and our shield is He, 21 For in Him doth our heart rejoice, For in His holy name we have trusted. 22 Let Thy kindness, O Jehovah, be upon us, As we have waited for Thee!

Psalms 34:1-36:1

1 By David, in his changing his behaviour before Abimelech, and he driveth him away, and he goeth. I do bless Jehovah at all times, Continually His praise is in my mouth. 2 In Jehovah doth my soul boast herself, Hear do the humble and rejoice. 3 Ascribe ye greatness to Jehovah with me, And we exalt His name together. 4 I sought Jehovah, and He answered me, And from all my fears did deliver me. 5 They looked expectingly unto Him, And they became bright, And their faces are not ashamed. 6 This poor one called, and Jehovah heard, And from all his distresses saved him. 7 A messenger of Jehovah is encamping, Round about those who fear Him, And He armeth them. 8 Taste ye and see that Jehovah is good, O the happiness of the man who trusteth in Him. 9 Fear Jehovah, ye His holy ones, For there is no lack to those fearing Him. 10 Young lions have lacked and been hungry, And those seeking Jehovah lack not any good,
11 Come ye, children, hearken to me, The fear of Jehovah I do teach you. 12 Who is the man that is desiring life? Loving days to see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, And thy lips from speaking deceit. 14 Turn aside from evil and do good, Seek peace and pursue it. 15 The eyes of Jehovah are unto the righteous, And His ears unto their cry. 16 (The face of Jehovah is on doers of evil, To cut off from earth their memorial.) 17 They cried, and Jehovah heard, And from all their distresses delivered them. 18 Near is Jehovah to the broken of heart, And the bruised of spirit He saveth. 19 Many are the evils of the righteous, Out of them all doth Jehovah deliver him. 20 He is keeping all his bones, One of them hath not been broken. 21 Evil doth put to death the wicked, And those hating the righteous are desolate. 22 Jehovah redeemeth the soul of His servants, And none trusting in Him are desolate!

Psalms 35:1-36:1

1 By David. Strive, Jehovah, with my strivers, fight with my fighters, 2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and rise for my help, 3 And draw out spear and lance, To meet my pursuers. Say to my soul, `Thy salvation I am .' 4 They are ashamed and blush, those seeking my soul, Turned backward and confounded, Those devising my evil. 5 They are as chaff before wind, And a messenger of Jehovah driving away. 6 Their way is darkness and slipperiness, And a messenger of Jehovah their pursuer. 7 For without cause they hid for me their netpit, Without cause they digged for my soul. 8 Meet him doth desolation—he knoweth not, And his net that he hid catcheth him, For desolation he falleth into it. 9 And my soul is joyful in Jehovah, It rejoiceth in His salvation. 10 All my bones say, `Jehovah, who is like Thee, Delivering the poor from the stronger than he, And the poor and needy from his plunderer.'
11 Violent witnesses rise up, That which I have not known they ask me. 12 They pay me evil for good, bereaving my soul, 13 And I—in their sickness my clothing is sackcloth, I have humbled with fastings my soul, And my prayer unto my bosom returneth. 14 As if a friend, as if my brother, I walked habitually, As a mourner for a mother, Mourning I have bowed down. 15 And—in my halting they have rejoiced, And have been gathered together, Gathered against me were the smiters, And I have not known, They have rent, and they have not ceased; 16 With profane ones, mockers in feasts, Gnashing against me their teeth.
17 Lord, how long dost thou behold? Keep back my soul from their desolations, From young lions my only one. 18 I thank Thee in a great assembly, Among a mighty people I praise Thee. 19 Mine enemies rejoice not over me with falsehood, Those hating me without cause wink the eye. 20 For they speak not peace, And against the quiet of the land, Deceitful words they devise, 21 And they enlarge against me their mouth, They said, `Aha, aha, our eye hath seen.' 22 Thou hast seen, O Jehovah, Be not silent, O Lord—be not far from me, 23 Stir up, and wake to my judgment, My God, and my Lord, to my plea. 24 Judge me according to Thy righteousness, O Jehovah my God, And they do not rejoice over me. 25 They do not say in their heart, `Aha, our desire.' They do not say, `We swallowed him up.' 26 They are ashamed and confounded together, Who are rejoicing at my evil. They put on shame and confusion, Who are magnifying themselves against me. 27 They sing and rejoice, who are desiring my righteousness, And they say continually, `Jehovah is magnified, Who is desiring the peace of His servant.' 28 And my tongue uttereth Thy righteousness, All the day Thy praise!

Psalms 36:1-1

1 To the Overseer. —By a servant of Jehovah, by David. The transgression of the wicked Is affirming within my heart, `Fear of God is not before his eyes,

Proverbs 22:6

6 Give instruction to a youth about his way, Even when he is old he turneth not from it.

Leviticus 18:1-30

1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2 `Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, I am Jehovah your God; 3 according to the work of the land of Egypt in which ye have dwelt ye do not, and according to the work of the land of Canaan whither I am bringing you in, ye do not, and in their statutes ye walk not. 4 `My judgments ye do, and My statutes ye keep, to walk in them; I am Jehovah your God; 5 and ye have kept My statutes and My judgments which man doth and liveth in them; I am Jehovah.
6 `None of you unto any relation of his flesh doth draw near to uncover nakedness; I am Jehovah. 7 `The nakedness of thy father and the nakedness of thy mother thou dost not uncover, she is thy mother; thou dost not uncover her nakedness. 8 `The nakedness of the wife of thy father thou dost not uncover; it is the nakedness of thy father. 9 `The nakedness of thy sister, daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, born at home or born without; thou dost not uncover their nakedness. 10 `The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter: thou dost not uncover their nakedness; for theirs is thy nakedness. 11 `The nakedness of a daughter of thy father's wife, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister; thou dost not uncover her nakedness. 12 `The nakedness of a sister of thy father thou dost not uncover; she is a relation of thy father. 13 `The nakedness of thy mother's sister thou dost not uncover; for she is thy mother's relation. 14 `The nakedness of thy father's brother thou dost not uncover; unto his wife thou dost not draw near; she is thine aunt. 15 `The nakedness of thy daughter-in-law thou dost not uncover; she is thy son's wife; thou dost not uncover her nakedness. 16 `The nakedness of thy brother's wife thou dost not uncover; it is thy brother's nakedness. 17 `The nakedness of a woman and her daughter thou dost not uncover; her son's daughter, and her daughter's daughter thou dost not take to uncover her nakedness; they are her relations; it is wickedness. 18 `And a woman unto another thou dost not take, to be an adversary, to uncover her nakedness beside her, in her life.
19 `And unto a woman in the separation of her uncleanness thou dost not draw near to uncover her nakedness. 20 `And unto the wife of thy fellow thou dost not give thy seed of copulation, for uncleanness with her. 21 `And of thy seed thou dost not give to pass over to the Molech; nor dost thou pollute the name of thy God; I am Jehovah. 22 `And with a male thou dost not lie as one lieth with a woman; abomination it is . 23 `And with any beast thou dost not give thy copulation, for uncleanness with it; and a woman doth not stand before a beast to lie down with it; confusion it is . 24 `Ye are not defiled with all these, for with all these have the nations been defiled which I am sending away from before you; 25 and the land is defiled, and I charge its iniquity upon it, and the land vomiteth out its inhabitants: 26 and ye—ye have kept My statutes and My judgments, and do not any of all these abominations, the native and the sojourner who is sojourning in your midst, 27 (for all these abominations have the men of the land done who are before you, and the land is defiled), 28 and the land doth not vomit you out in your defiling it, as it hath vomited out the nation which is before you; 29 for any one who doth any of all these abominations—even the persons who are doing so, have been cut off from the midst of their people; 30 and ye have kept My charge, so as not to do any of the abominable statutes which have been done before you, and ye do not defile yourselves with them; I am Jehovah your God.'
