Matthew(i) 1 To the chaunter vpon Almuth Laben, a Psalme of Dauid. I wyll geue thankes vnto the (O Lord) with my whole hert I will speake of all thy meruelous workes. 2 I will be glad, and reioyse in the, yea, my songes wil I make of thy name O thou moost hyest. 3 Because thou hast dryuen myne enemyes abacke, they were disconfited, and perished at thy presence. 4 For thou hast maynteyned my right and my cause: thou sittest in the throne that arte the true iudge. 5 Thou rebukest the Heythen, & destroyest the vngodly, thou puttest out their name for euer and euer. 6 The enemyes sweardes are come too an ende, thou haste ouerthrowen their cytyes, their memorial is perished with them. 7 But the Lorde endureth for euer, he hath prepared his seate vnto iudgement. 8 He gouerneth the worlde with righteousnes, and ministreth true iudgement vnto the people. 9 The Lorde is a defence for the poore, a defence in the tyme of trouble. 10 Therfore they that know thy name, putte their trust in the: for thou (Lorde) neuer faylest them that seke the. 11 O prayse the Lorde, whiche dwelleth in Syon, shewe the people of hys doynges. 12 And why? he maketh inquisicion for their bloude, and remembreth theym: he forgetteth not th complaynte of the poore. 13 Haue mercy vpon me (O Lord) considre the trouble that I am in amonge myne enemyes, thou that liftest me vp from the gates of death. 14 That I maye shewe all thy prayses within the portes of the daughter of Sion, and reioyse in thy sauynge health. 15 As for the Heathen, thei are suncken doune in the pytte that they made: in the same nette which they spred out priuely, is their owne feete taken. 16 Thus the Lord is knowen to execute true iudgemente, when the vngodly is trapped in the woorkes of hys owne handes. Selah. 17 The wicked must be turned vnto hell, & all the Heythen that forget God. 18 But the poore shall not all waye be oute of remembraunce, the pacyent abydynge of suche as be in trouble shall not peryshe for euer. 19 Vp Lorde, let no man haue the vpperhand let the Heythen be condemned before the. 20 O Lorde set a scholemaster ouer them, that the Heathen maye knowe theim selfes to be but men. Selah.
