  108. EZR.4:14 - Now because we have maintenance from the king's palace, and it was not meet for us to see the king's dishonour, therefore have we sent and certified the king;
  109. EZR.4:15 - That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers, so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time, for which cause was this city destroyed.

  114. EZR.4:20 - There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, which have ruled over all countries beyond the river; and toll, tribute, and custom, was paid unto them.
  115. EZR.4:21 - Give ye now commandment to cause these men to cease, and that this city be not builded, until another commandment shall be given from me.
  116. EZR.4:22 - Take heed now that ye fail not to do this, why should damage grow to the hurt of the kings?
  117. EZR.4:23 - Now when the copy of king Artaxerxes' letter was read before Rehum, and Shimshai the scribe, and their companions, they went up in haste to Jerusalem unto the Jews, and made them to cease by force and power.

  122. EZR.5:4 - Then said we unto them after this manner, What are the names of the men that make this building?
  123. EZR.5:5 - But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, that they could not cause them to cease, till the matter came to Darius, and then they returned answer by letter concerning this matter.

  126. EZR.5:8 - Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands.
  127. EZR.5:9 - Then asked we those elders, and said unto them thus, Who commanded you to build this house, and to make up these walls?
  128. EZR.5:10 - We asked their names also, to certify thee, that we might write the names of the men that were the chief of them.
  129. EZR.5:11 - And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and set up.
  130. EZR.5:12 - But after that our fathers had provoked the God of heaven unto wrath, he gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon.
  131. EZR.5:13 - But in the first year of Cyrus the king of Babylon the same king Cyrus made a decree to build this house of God.
  132. EZR.5:14 - And the vessels also of gold and silver of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem, and brought them into the temple of Babylon, those did Cyrus the king take out of the temple of Babylon, and they were delivered unto one, whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor;
  133. EZR.5:15 - And said unto him, Take these vessels, go, carry them into the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let the house of God be builded in his place.
  134. EZR.5:16 - Then came the same Sheshbazzar, and laid the foundation of the house of God which is in Jerusalem, and since that time even until now hath it been in building, and yet it is not finished.
  135. EZR.5:17 - Now therefore, if it seem good to the king, let there be search made in the king's treasure house, which is there at Babylon, whether it be so, that a decree was made of Cyrus the king to build this house of God at Jerusalem, and let the king send his pleasure to us concerning this matter.
  136. EZR.6:1 - Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.
  137. EZR.6:2 - And there was found at Achmetha, in the palace that is in the province of the Medes, a roll, and therein was a record thus written
  138. EZR.6:3 - In the first year of Cyrus the king the same Cyrus the king made a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, Let the house be builded, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid; the height thereof threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof threescore cubits;
  139. EZR.6:4 - With three rows of great stones, and a row of new timber, and let the expences be given out of the king's house
  140.

  141. EZR.6:6 - Now therefore, Tatnai, governor beyond the river, Shethar - boznai, and your companions the Apharsachites, which are beyond the river, be ye far from thence
  142. EZR.6:7 - Let the work of this house of God alone; let the governor of the Jews and the elders of the Jews build this house of God in his place.
  143. EZR.6:8 - Moreover I made a decree what ye shall do to the elders of these Jews for the building of this house of God, that of the king's goods, even of the tribute beyond the river, forthwith expences be given unto these men, that they be not hindered.
  144. EZR.6:9 - And that which they have need of, both young bullocks, and rams, and lambs, for the burnt offerings of the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, and oil, according to the appointment of the priests which are at Jerusalem, let it be given them day by day without fail
  145. EZR.6:10 - That they may offer sacrifices of sweet savours unto the God of heaven, and pray for the life of the king, and of his sons.
  146. EZR.6:11 - Also I have made a decree, that whosoever shall alter this word, let timber be pulled down from his house, and being set up, let him be hanged thereon; and let his house be made a dunghill for this.
  147. EZR.6:12 - And the God that hath caused his name to dwell there destroy all kings and people, that shall put to their hand to alter and to destroy this house of God which is at Jerusalem. I Darius have made a decree; let it be done with speed.
  148. EZR.6:13 - Then Tatnai, governor on this side the river, Shethar - boznai, and their companions, according to that which Darius the king had sent, so they did speedily.
  149. EZR.6:14 - And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.
  150. EZR.6:15 - And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.
  151. EZR.6:16 - And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the rest of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God with joy,
  152. EZR.6:17 - And offered at the dedication of this house of God an hundred bullocks, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs; and for a sin offering for all Israel, twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel.
  153. EZR.6:18 - And they set the priests in their divisions, and the Levites in their courses, for the service of God, which is at Jerusalem; as it is written in the book of Moses.
  154. EZR.6:19 - And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
  155. EZR.6:20 - For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
  156. EZR.6:21 - And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat,
  157. EZR.6:22 - And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy, for the LORD had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.
  158. EZR.7:1 - Now after these things, in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Ezra the son of Seraiah, the son of Azariah, the son of Hilkiah,

  164. EZR.7:7 - And there went up some of the children of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king.
  165. EZR.7:8 - And he came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which was in the seventh year of the king.
  166. EZR.7:9 - For upon the first day of the first month began he to go up from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month came he to Jerusalem, according to the good hand of his God upon him.
  167. EZR.7:10 - For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.
  168. EZR.7:11 - Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of his statutes to Israel.
  169. EZR.7:12 - Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time.
  170. EZR.7:13 - I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee.
  171. EZR.7:14 - Forasmuch as thou art sent of the king, and of his seven counsellers, to inquire concerning Judah and Jerusalem, according to the law of thy God which is in thine hand;
  172. EZR.7:15 - And to carry the silver and gold, which the king and his counsellers have freely offered unto the God of Israel, whose habitation is in Jerusalem,
  173. EZR.7:16 - And all the silver and gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their God which is in Jerusalem
  174. EZR.7:17 - That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your God which is in Jerusalem.
  175. EZR.7:18 - And whatsoever shall seem good to thee, and to thy brethren, to do with the rest of the silver and the gold, that do after the will of your God.
  176. EZR.7:19 - The vessels also that are given thee for the service of the house of thy God, those deliver thou before the God of Jerusalem.
  177. EZR.7:20 - And whatsoever more shall be needful for the house of thy God, which thou shalt have occasion to bestow, bestow it out of the king's treasure house.
  178. EZR.7:21 - And I, even I Artaxerxes the king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily,
  179. EZR.7:22 - Unto an hundred talents of silver, and to an hundred measures of wheat, and to an hundred baths of wine, and to an hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribing how much.
  180. EZR.7:23 - Whatsoever is commanded by the God of heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the God of heaven, for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?
  181. EZR.7:24 - Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them.
  182. EZR.7:25 - And thou, Ezra, after the wisdom of thy God, that is in thine hand, set magistrates and judges, which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the laws of thy God; and teach ye them that know them not.
  183. EZR.7:26 - And whosoever will not do the law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him, whether it be unto death, or to banishment, or to confiscation of goods, or to imprisonment.
  184. EZR.7:27 - Blessed be the LORD God of our fathers, which hath put such a thing as this in the king's heart, to beautify the house of the LORD which is in Jerusalem
  185. EZR.7:28 - And hath extended mercy unto me before the king, and his counsellers, and before all the king's mighty princes. And I was strengthened as the hand of the LORD my God was upon me, and I gathered together out of Israel chief men to go up with me.
  186. EZR.8:1 - These are now the chief of their fathers, and this is the genealogy of them that went up with me from Babylon, in the reign of Artaxerxes the king.

  199. EZR.8:14 - Of the sons also of Bigvai; Uthai, and Zabbud, and with them seventy males.
  200. EZR.8:15 - And I gathered them together to the river that runneth to Ahava; and there abode we in tents three days, and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi.
  201. EZR.8:16 - Then sent I for Eliezer, for Ariel, for Shemaiah, and for Elnathan, and for Jarib, and for Elnathan, and for Nathan, and for Zechariah, and for Meshullam, chief men; also for Joiarib, and for Elnathan, men of understanding.
  202. EZR.8:17 - And I sent them with commandment unto Iddo the chief at the place Casiphia, and I told them what they should say unto Iddo, and to his brethren the Nethinims, at the place Casiphia, that they should bring unto us ministers for the house of our God.
  203. EZR.8:18 - And by the good hand of our God upon us they brought us a man of understanding, of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel; and Sherebiah, with his sons and his brethren, eighteen;
  204. EZR.8:19 - And Hashabiah, and with him Jeshaiah of the sons of Merari, his brethren and their sons, twenty;
  205. EZR.8:20 - Also of the Nethinims, whom David and the princes had appointed for the service of the Levites, two hundred and twenty Nethinims, all of them were expressed by name.
  206. EZR.8:21 - Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.
  207. EZR.8:22 - For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way, because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.
  208. EZR.8:23 - So we fasted and besought our God for this, and he was intreated of us.
  209. EZR.8:24 - Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,
  210. EZR.8:25 - And weighed unto them the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, even the offering of the house of our God, which the king, and his counsellers, and his lords, and all Israel there present, had offered
  211. EZR.8:26 - I even weighed unto their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, and silver vessels an hundred talents, and of gold an hundred talents;
  212. EZR.8:27 - Also twenty basons of gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine copper, precious as gold.
  213. EZR.8:28 - And I said unto them, Ye are holy unto the LORD; the vessels are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering unto the LORD God of your fathers.
  214. EZR.8:29 - Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.
  215. EZR.8:30 - So took the priests and the Levites the weight of the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, to bring them to Jerusalem unto the house of our God.
  216. EZR.8:31 - Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Jerusalem, and the hand of our God was upon us, and he delivered us from the hand of the enemy, and of such as lay in wait by the way.
  217. EZR.8:32 - And we came to Jerusalem, and abode there three days.
  218. EZR.8:33 - Now on the fourth day was the silver and the gold and the vessels weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest; and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; and with them was Jozabad the son of Jeshua, and Noadiah the son of Binnui, Levites;
  219. EZR.8:34 - By number and by weight of every one, and all the weight was written at that time.
  220. EZR.8:35 - Also the children of those that had been carried away, which were come out of the captivity, offered burnt offerings unto the God of Israel, twelve bullocks for all Israel, ninety and six rams, seventy and seven lambs, twelve he goats for a sin offering, all this was a burnt offering unto the LORD.
  221. EZR.8:36 - And they delivered the king's commissions unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors on this side the river, and they furthered the people, and the house of God.
  222. EZR.9:1 - Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
  223. EZR.9:2 - For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons, so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands, yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.
  224. EZR.9:3 - And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied.
  225. EZR.9:4 - Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.
  226. EZR.9:5 - And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God.
  227. EZR.9:6 - And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God, for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.
  228. EZR.9:7 - Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.
  229. EZR.9:8 - And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
  230. EZR.9:9 - For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
  231. EZR.9:10 - And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,
  232. EZR.9:11 - Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.
  233. EZR.9:12 - Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever, that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.
  234. EZR.9:13 - And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;
  235. EZR.9:14 - Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?
  236. EZR.9:15 - O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous, for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day, behold, we are before thee in our trespasses, for we cannot stand before thee because of this.
  237. EZR.10:1 - Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children, for the people wept very sore.
  238. EZR.10:2 - And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land, yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.
  239. EZR.10:3 - Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.
  240. EZR.10:4 - Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee, we also will be with thee, be of good courage, and do it.
  241. EZR.10:5 - Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware.
  242. EZR.10:6 - Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God, and went into the chamber of Johanan the son of Eliashib, and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water, for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away.
  243. EZR.10:7 - And they made proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem unto all the children of the captivity, that they should gather themselves together unto Jerusalem;
  244. EZR.10:8 - And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.
  245. EZR.10:9 - Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.
  246. EZR.10:10 - And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.
  247. EZR.10:11 - Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure, and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.
  248. EZR.10:12 - Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.
  249. EZR.10:13 - But the people are many, and it is a time of much rain, and we are not able to stand without, neither is this a work of one day or two, for we are many that have transgressed in this thing.
  250. EZR.10:14 - Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our God for this matter be turned from us.
  251. EZR.10:15 - Only Jonathan the son of Asahel and Jahaziah the son of Tikvah were employed about this matter, and Meshullam and Shabbethai the Levite helped them.
  252. EZR.10:16 - And the children of the captivity did so. And Ezra the priest, with certain chief of the fathers, after the house of their fathers, and all of them by their names, were separated, and sat down in the first day of the tenth month to examine the matter.
  253. EZR.10:17 - And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives by the first day of the first month.
  254. EZR.10:18 - And among the sons of the priests there were found that had taken strange wives, namely, of the sons of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren; Maaseiah, and Eliezer, and Jarib, and Gedaliah.
  255. EZR.10:19 - And they gave their hands that they would put away their wives; and being guilty, they offered a ram of the flock for their trespass.
  256. EZR.10:20 - And of the sons of Immer; Hanani, and Zebadiah.
  257. EZR.10:21 - And of the sons of Harim; Maaseiah, and Elijah, and Shemaiah, and Jehiel, and Uzziah.

  281. NEH.1:1 - The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace,
  282. NEH.1:2 - That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.
  283. NEH.1:3 - And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach, the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.
  284. NEH.1:4 - And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,
  285. NEH.1:5 - And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments
  286. NEH.1:6 - Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee, both I and my father's house have sinned.
  287. NEH.1:7 - We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.
  288. NEH.1:8 - Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations
  289. NEH.1:9 - But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.
  290. NEH.1:10 - Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.
  291. NEH.1:11 - O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name, and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.
  292. NEH.2:1 - And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him, and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.
  293. NEH.2:2 - Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid,
  294. NEH.2:3 - And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever, why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?
  295. NEH.2:4 - Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.
  296. NEH.2:5 - And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres, that I may build it.
  297. NEH.2:6 - And the king said unto me, (the queen also sitting by him,) For how long shall thy journey be? and when wilt thou return? So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.
  298. NEH.2:7 - Moreover I said unto the king, If it please the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the river, that they may convey me over till I come into Judah;
  299. NEH.2:8 - And a letter unto Asaph the keeper of the king's forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the palace which appertained to the house, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into. And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me.
  300. NEH.2:9 - Then I came to the governors beyond the river, and gave them the king's letters. Now the king had sent captains of the army and horsemen with me.
  301. NEH.2:10 - When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.
  302. NEH.2:11 - So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.
  303. NEH.2:12 - And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem, neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.
  304. NEH.2:13 - And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.
  305. NEH.2:14 - Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's pool, but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass.
  306. NEH.2:15 - Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned.
  307. NEH.2:16 - And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.
  308. NEH.2:17 - Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire, come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.
  309. NEH.2:18 - Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king's words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.
  310. NEH.2:19 - But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?
  311. NEH.2:20 - Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build, but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.
  312. NEH.3:1 - Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the priests, and they builded the sheep gate; they sanctified it, and set up the doors of it; even unto the tower of Meah they sanctified it, unto the tower of Hananeel.
  313. NEH.3:2 - And next unto him builded the men of Jericho. And next to them builded Zaccur the son of Imri.
  314. NEH.3:3 - But the fish gate did the sons of Hassenaah build, who also laid the beams thereof, and set up the doors thereof, the locks thereof, and the bars thereof.
  315. NEH.3:4 - And next unto them repaired Meremoth the son of Urijah, the son of Koz. And next unto them repaired Meshullam the son of Berechiah, the son of Meshezabeel. And next unto them repaired Zadok the son of Baana.
  316. NEH.3:5 - And next unto them the Tekoites repaired; but their nobles put not their necks to the work of their Lord.
  317. NEH.3:6 - Moreover the old gate repaired Jehoiada the son of Paseah, and Meshullam the son of Besodeiah; they laid the beams thereof, and set up the doors thereof, and the locks thereof, and the bars thereof.
  318. NEH.3:7 - And next unto them repaired Melatiah the Gibeonite, and Jadon the Meronothite, the men of Gibeon, and of Mizpah, unto the throne of the governor on this side the river.

  343. NEH.3:32 - And between the going up of the corner unto the sheep gate repaired the goldsmiths and the merchants.
  344. NEH.4:1 - But it came to pass, that when Sanballat heard that we builded the wall, he was wroth, and took great indignation, and mocked the Jews.
  345. NEH.4:2 - And he spake before his brethren and the army of Samaria, and said, What do these feeble Jews? will they fortify themselves? will they sacrifice? will they make an end in a day? will they revive the stones out of the heaps of the rubbish which are burned?
  346. NEH.4:3 - Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, Even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall.
  347. NEH.4:4 - Hear, O our God; for we are despised, and turn their reproach upon their own head, and give them for a prey in the land of captivity
  348. NEH.4:5 - And cover not their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee, for they have provoked thee to anger before the builders.
  349. NEH.4:6 - So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof, for the people had a mind to work.
  350. NEH.4:7 - But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth,
  351. NEH.4:8 - And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.
  352. NEH.4:9 - Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.
  353. NEH.4:10 - And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.
  354. NEH.4:11 - And our adversaries said, They shall not know, neither see, till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease.
  355. NEH.4:12 - And it came to pass, that when the Jews which dwelt by them came, they said unto us ten times, From all places whence ye shall return unto us they will be upon you.
  356. NEH.4:13 - Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.
  357. NEH.4:14 - And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them, remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.
  358. NEH.4:15 - And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work.
  359. NEH.4:16 - And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah.
  360. NEH.4:17 - They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.
  361. NEH.4:18 - For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.
  362. NEH.4:19 - And I said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, The work is great and large, and we are separated upon the wall, one far from another.
  363. NEH.4:20 - In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us, our God shall fight for us.
  364. NEH.4:21 - So we laboured in the work, and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared.
  365. NEH.4:22 - Likewise at the same time said I unto the people, Let every one with his servant lodge within Jerusalem, that in the night they may be a guard to us, and labour on the day.
  366. NEH.4:23 - So neither I, nor my brethren, nor my servants, nor the men of the guard which followed me, none of us put off our clothes, saving that every one put them off for washing.
  367. NEH.5:1 - And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews.
  368. NEH.5:2 - For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many, therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live.
  369. NEH.5:3 - Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.
  370. NEH.5:4 - There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.
  371. NEH.5:5 - Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children, and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already, neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.
  372. NEH.5:6 - And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.
  373. NEH.5:7 - Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.
  374. NEH.5:8 - And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer.
  375. NEH.5:9 - Also I said, It is not good that ye do, ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies?
  376. NEH.5:10 - I likewise, and my brethren, and my servants, might exact of them money and corn, I pray you, let us leave off this usury.
  377. NEH.5:11 - Restore, I pray you, to them, even this day, their lands, their vineyards, their oliveyards, and their houses, also the the hundredth part of the money, and of the corn, the wine, and the oil, that ye exact of them.
  378. NEH.5:12 - Then said they, We will restore them, and will require nothing of them; so will we do as thou sayest. Then I called the priests, and took an oath of them, that they should do according to this promise.
  379. NEH.5:13 - Also I shook my lap, and said, So God shake out every man from his house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise, even thus be he shaken out, and emptied. And all the congregation said, Amen, and praised the LORD. And the people did according to this promise.
  380. NEH.5:14 - Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor.
  381. NEH.5:15 - But the former governors that had been before me were chargeable unto the people, and had taken of them bread and wine, beside forty shekels of silver; yea, even their servants bare rule over the people, but so did not I, because of the fear of God.
  382. NEH.5:16 - Yea, also I continued in the work of this wall, neither bought we any land, and all my servants were gathered thither unto the work.
  383. NEH.5:17 - Moreover there were at my table an hundred and fifty of the Jews and rulers, beside those that came unto us from among the heathen that are about us.
  384. NEH.5:18 - Now that which was prepared for me daily was one ox and six choice sheep; also fowls were prepared for me, and once in ten days store of all sorts of wine, yet for all this required not I the bread of the governor, because the bondage was heavy upon this people.
  385. NEH.5:19 - Think upon me, my God, for good, according to all that I have done for this people.
  386. NEH.6:1 - Now it came to pass, when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;)
  387. NEH.6:2 - That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in some one of the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief.
  388. NEH.6:3 - And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down, why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?
  389. NEH.6:4 - Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner.
  390. NEH.6:5 - Then sent Sanballat his servant unto me in like manner the fifth time with an open letter in his hand;
  391. NEH.6:6 - Wherein was written, It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith it, that thou and the Jews think to rebel, for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words.
  392. NEH.6:7 - And thou hast also appointed prophets to preach of thee at Jerusalem, saying, There is a king in Judah, and now shall it be reported to the king according to these words. Come now therefore, and let us take counsel together.
  393. NEH.6:8 - Then I sent unto him, saying, There are no such things done as thou sayest, but thou feignest them out of thine own heart.
  394. NEH.6:9 - For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands.
  395. NEH.6:10 - Afterward I came unto the house of Shemaiah the son of Delaiah the son of Mehetabeel, who was shut up; and he said, Let us meet together in the house of God, within the temple, and let us shut the doors of the temple, for they will come to slay thee; yea, in the night will they come to slay thee.
  396. NEH.6:11 - And I said, Should such a man as I flee? and who is there, that, being as I am, would go into the temple to save his life? I will not go in.
  397. NEH.6:12 - And, lo, I perceived that God had not sent him; but that he pronounced this prophecy against me, for Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.
  398. NEH.6:13 - Therefore was he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and that they might have matter for an evil report, that they might reproach me.
  399. NEH.6:14 - My God, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear.
  400. NEH.6:15 - So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days.
  401. NEH.6:16 - And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes, for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God.
  402. NEH.6:17 - Moreover in those days the nobles of Judah sent many letters unto Tobiah, and the letters of Tobiah came unto them.
  403. NEH.6:18 - For there were many in Judah sworn unto him, because he was the son in law of Shechaniah the son of Arah; and his son Johanan had taken the daughter of Meshullam the son of Berechiah.
  404. NEH.6:19 - Also they reported his good deeds before me, and uttered my words to him. And Tobiah sent letters to put me in fear.
  405. NEH.7:1 - Now it came to pass, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed,
  406. NEH.7:2 - That I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the palace, charge over Jerusalem, for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many.
  407. NEH.7:3 - And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them, and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, every one in his watch, and every one to be over against his house.
  408. NEH.7:4 - Now the city was large and great, but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded.
  409. NEH.7:5 - And my God put into mine heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and found written therein,
  410. NEH.7:6 - These are the children of the province, that went up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one unto his city;
  411. NEH.7:7 - Who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number, I say, of the men of the people of Israel was this;

  468. NEH.7:64 - These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found, therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.
  469. NEH.7:65 - And the Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim.
  470. NEH.7:66 - The whole congregation together was forty and two thousand three hundred and threescore,
  471. NEH.7:67 - Beside their manservants and their maidservants, of whom there were seven thousand three hundred thirty and seven, and they had two hundred forty and five singing men and singing women.

  475. NEH.7:71 - And some of the chief of the fathers gave to the treasure of the work twenty thousand drams of gold, and two thousand and two hundred pound of silver.
  476. NEH.7:72 - And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand drams of gold, and two thousand pound of silver, and threescore and seven priests' garments.
  477. NEH.7:73 - So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.
  478. NEH.8:1 - And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.
  479. NEH.8:2 - And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.
  480. NEH.8:3 - And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.
  481. NEH.8:4 - And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam.
  482. NEH.8:5 - And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up
  483. NEH.8:6 - And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands, and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.
  484. NEH.8:7 - Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law, and the people stood in their place.
  485. NEH.8:8 - So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.
  486. NEH.8:9 - And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.
  487. NEH.8:10 - Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared, for this day is holy unto our Lord, neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

  505. NEH.9:10 - And shewedst signs and wonders upon Pharoah, and on all his servants, and on all the people of his land, for thou knewest that they dealt proudly against them. So didst thou get thee a name, as it is this day.
  506. NEH.9:11 - And thou didst divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; and their persecutors thou threwest into the deeps, as a stone into the mighty waters.

  515. NEH.9:20 - Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.
  516. NEH.9:21 - Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.
  517. NEH.9:22 - Moreover thou gavest them kingdoms and nations, and didst divide them into corners, so they possessed the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.
  518. NEH.9:23 - Their children also multipliedst thou as the stars of heaven, and broughtest them into the land, concerning which thou hadst promised to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it.

  520. NEH.9:25 - And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance, so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and delighted themselves in thy great goodness.
  521. NEH.9:26 - Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations.
  522. NEH.9:27 - Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them, and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies.
  523. NEH.9:28 - But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee, therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them, yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies;
  524. NEH.9:29 - And testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law, yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thy judgments, (which if a man do, he shall live in them;) and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.
  525. NEH.9:30 - Yet many years didst thou forbear them, and testifiedst against them by thy spirit in thy prophets, yet would they not give ear, therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the people of the lands.
  526. NEH.9:31 - Nevertheless for thy great mercies' sake thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for thou art a gracious and merciful God.
  527.

  528. NEH.9:33 - Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly
  529. NEH.9:34 - Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them.
  530. NEH.9:35 - For they have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goodness that thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.
  531. NEH.9:36 - Behold, we are servants this day, and for the land that thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it
  532. NEH.9:37 - And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us because of our sins, also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.

  653. NEH.12:45 - And both the singers and the porters kept the ward of their God, and the ward of the purification, according to the commandment of David, and of Solomon his son.
  654. NEH.12:46 - For in the days of David and Asaph of old there were chief of the singers, and songs of praise and thanksgiving unto God.
  655. NEH.12:47 - And all Israel in the days of Zerubbabel, and in the days of Nehemiah, gave the portions of the singers and the porters, every day his portion, and they sanctified holy things unto the Levites; and the Levites sanctified them unto the children of Aaron.
  656. NEH.13:1 - On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of God for ever;
  657. NEH.13:2 - Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them, howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.
  658. NEH.13:3 - Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
  659. NEH.13:4 - And before this, Eliashib the priest, having the oversight of the chamber of the house of our God, was allied unto Tobiah
  660. NEH.13:5 - And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.
  661. NEH.13:6 - But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem, for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king
  662. NEH.13:7 - And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God.
  663. NEH.13:8 - And it grieved me sore, therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber.
  664. NEH.13:9 - Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers, and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meat offering and the frankincense.
  665. NEH.13:10 - And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them, for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled every one to his field.
  666. NEH.13:11 - Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place.
  667. NEH.13:12 - Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.
  668. NEH.13:13 - And I made treasurers over the treasuries, Shelemiah the priest, and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah, and next to them was Hanan the son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah, for they were counted faithful, and their office was to distribute unto their brethren.
  669. NEH.13:14 - Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.
  670. NEH.13:15 - In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the sabbath day, and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals.
  671. NEH.13:16 - There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.
  672. NEH.13:17 - Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the sabbath day?
  673. NEH.13:18 - Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.
  674. NEH.13:19 - And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath, and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.
  675. NEH.13:20 - So the merchants and sellers of all kind of ware lodged without Jerusalem once or twice.
  676. NEH.13:21 - Then I testified against them, and said unto them, Why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you. From that time forth came they no more on the sabbath.
  677. NEH.13:22 - And I commanded the Levites that they should cleanse themselves, and that they should come and keep the gates, to sanctify the sabbath day. Remember me, O my God, concerning this also, and spare me according to the greatness of thy mercy.
  678. NEH.13:23 - In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab
  679. NEH.13:24 - And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people.
  680. NEH.13:25 - And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves.
  681. NEH.13:26 - Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel, nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.
  682. NEH.13:27 - Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?
  683. NEH.13:28 - And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite, therefore I chased him from me.
  684. NEH.13:29 - Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.
  685. NEH.13:30 - Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business;
  686. NEH.13:31 - And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the firstfruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.
  687. EST.1:1 - Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces )
  688. EST.1:2 - That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,
  689. EST.1:3 - In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him
  690. EST.1:4 - When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days.
  691. EST.1:5 - And when these days were expired, the king made a feast unto all the people that were present in Shushan the palace, both unto great and small, seven days, in the court of the garden of the king's palace;
  692. EST.1:6 - Where were white, green, and blue, hangings, fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to silver rings and pillars of marble, the beds were of gold and silver, upon a pavement of red, and blue, and white, and black, marble.
  693. EST.1:7 - And they gave them drink in vessels of gold, (the vessels being diverse one from another,) and royal wine in abundance, according to the state of the king.
  694. EST.1:8 - And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel, for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man's pleasure.
  695. EST.1:9 - Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus.
  696. EST.1:10 - On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king,
  697. EST.1:11 - To bring Vashti the queen before the king with the crown royal, to shew the people and the princes her beauty, for she was fair to look on.
  698. EST.1:12 - But the queen Vashti refused to come at the king's commandment by his chamberlains, therefore was the king very wroth, and his anger burned in him.
  699. EST.1:13 - Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king's manner toward all that knew law and judgment
  700. EST.1:14 - And the next unto him was Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan, the seven princes of Persia and Media, which saw the king's face, and which sat the first in the kingdom;)
  701. EST.1:15 - What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?
  702. EST.1:16 - And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus.
  703. EST.1:17 - For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not.
  704. EST.1:18 - Likewise shall the ladies of Persia and Media say this day unto all the king's princes, which have heard of the deed of the queen. Thus shall there arise too much contempt and wrath.
  705. EST.1:19 - If it please the king, let there go a royal commandment from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes, that it be not altered, That Vashti come no more before king Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal estate unto another that is better than she.
  706. EST.1:20 - And when the king's decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his empire, (for it is great,) all the wives shall give to their husbands honour, both to great and small.
  707. EST.1:21 - And the saying pleased the king and the princes; and the king did according to the word of Memucan
  708. EST.1:22 - For he sent letters into all the king's provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that it should be published according to the language of every people.
  709. EST.2:1 - After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her.
  710. EST.2:2 - Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, Let there be fair young virgins sought for the king
  711. EST.2:3 - And let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins unto Shushan the palace, to the house of the women unto the custody of Hege the king's chamberlain, keeper of the women; and let their things for purification be given them
  712. EST.2:4 - And let the maiden which pleaseth the king be queen instead of Vashti. And the thing pleased the king; and he did so.
  713. EST.2:5 - Now in Shushan the palace there was a certain Jew, whose name was Mordecai, the son of Jair, the son of Shimei, the son of Kish, a Benjamite;
  714. EST.2:6 - Who had been carried away from Jerusalem with the captivity which had been carried away with Jeconiah king of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away.
  715. EST.2:7 - And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle's daughter, for she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter.
  716. EST.2:8 - So it came to pass, when the king's commandment and his decree was heard, and when many maidens were gathered together unto Shushan the palace, to the custody of Hegai, that Esther was brought also unto the king's house, to the custody of Hegai, keeper of the women.
  717. EST.2:9 - And the maiden pleased him, and she obtained kindness of him; and he speedily gave her her things for purification, with such things as belonged to her, and seven maidens, which were meet to be given her, out of the king's house, and he preferred her and her maids unto the best place of the house of the women.
  718. EST.2:10 - Esther had not shewed her people nor her kindred, for Mordecai had charged her that she should not shew it.
  719. EST.2:11 - And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the women's house, to know how Esther did, and what should become of her.
  720. EST.2:12 - Now when every maid's turn was come to go in to king Ahasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women;)
  721. EST.2:13 - Then thus came every maiden unto the king; whatsoever she desired was given her to go with her out of the house of the women unto the king's house.
  722. EST.2:14 - In the evening she went, and on the morrow she returned into the second house of the women, to the custody of Shaashgaz, the king's chamberlain, which kept the concubines, she came in unto the king no more, except the king delighted in her, and that she were called by name.
  723. EST.2:15 - Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king's chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her.
  724. EST.2:16 - So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.
  725. EST.2:17 - And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.
  726. EST.2:18 - Then the king made a great feast unto all his princes and his servants, even Esther's feast; and he made a release to the provinces, and gave gifts, according to the state of the king.
  727. EST.2:19 - And when the virgins were gathered together the second time, then Mordecai sat in the king's gate.
  728. EST.2:20 - Esther had not yet shewed her kindred nor her people; as Mordecai had charged her, for Esther did the commandment of Mordecai, like as when she was brought up with him.
  729. EST.2:21 - In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king's gate, two of the king's chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus.
  730. EST.2:22 - And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai's name.
  731. EST.2:23 - And when inquisition was made of the matter, it was found out; therefore they were both hanged on a tree, and it was written in the book of the chronicles before the king.
  732. EST.3:1 - After these things did king Ahasuerus promote Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes that were with him.
  733. EST.3:2 - And all the king's servants, that were in the king's gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman, for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence.
  734. EST.3:3 - Then the king's servants, which were in the king's gate, said unto Mordecai, Why transgressest thou the king's commandment?
  735. EST.3:4 - Now it came to pass, when they spake daily unto him, and he hearkened not unto them, that they told Haman, to see whether Mordecai's matters would stand, for he had told them that he was a Jew.
  736. EST.3:5 - And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath.
  737. EST.3:6 - And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai, wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai.
  738. EST.3:7 - In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar.
  739. EST.3:8 - And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king's laws, therefore it is not for the king's profit to suffer them.
  740. EST.3:9 - If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the king's treasuries.
  741. EST.3:10 - And the king took his ring from his hand, and gave it unto Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews' enemy.
  742. EST.3:11 - And the king said unto Haman, The silver is given to thee, the people also, to do with them as it seemeth good to thee.
  743. EST.3:12 - Then were the king's scribes called on the thirteenth day of the first month, and there was written according to all that Haman had commanded unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors that were over every province, and to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language; in the name of king Ahasuerus was it written, and sealed with the king's ring.
  744. EST.3:13 - And the letters were sent by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey.
  745. EST.3:14 - The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, that they should be ready against that day.
  746. EST.3:15 - The posts went out, being hastened by the king's commandment, and the decree was given in Shushan the palace. And the king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city Shushan was perplexed.
  747. EST.4:1 - When Mordecai perceived all that was done, Mordecai rent his clothes, and put on sackcloth with ashes, and went out into the midst of the city, and cried with a loud and a bitter cry;
  748. EST.4:2 - And came even before the king's gate, for none might enter into the king's gate clothed with sackcloth.
  749. EST.4:3 - And in every province, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, there was great mourning among the Jews, and fasting, and weeping, and wailing; and many lay in sackcloth and ashes.
  750. EST.4:4 - So Esther's maids and her chamberlains came and told it her. Then was the queen exceedingly grieved; and she sent raiment to clothe Mordecai, and to take away his sackcloth from him, but he received it not.
  751. EST.4:5 - Then called Esther for Hatach, one of the king's chamberlains, whom he had appointed to attend upon her, and gave him a commandment to Mordecai, to know what it was, and why it was.
  752. EST.4:6 - So Hatach went forth to Mordecai unto the street of the city, which was before the king's gate.
  753. EST.4:7 - And Mordecai told him of all that had happened unto him, and of the sum of the money that Haman had promised to pay to the king's treasuries for the Jews, to destroy them.
  754. EST.4:8 - Also he gave him the copy of the writing of the decree that was given at Shushan to destroy them, to shew it unto Esther, and to declare it unto her, and to charge her that she should go in unto the king, to make supplication unto him, and to make request before him for her people.
  755. EST.4:9 - And Hatach came and told Esther the words of Mordecai.
  756. EST.4:10 - Again Esther spake unto Hatach, and gave him commandment unto Mordecai;
  757. EST.4:11 - All the king's servants, and the people of the king's provinces, do know, that whosoever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the king into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live, but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days.
  758. EST.4:12 - And they told to Mordecai Esther's words.
  759. EST.4:13 - Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews.
  760. EST.4:14 - For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed, and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
  761. EST.4:15 - Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer,
  762. EST.4:16 - Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day, I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law, and if I perish, I perish.
  763. EST.4:17 - So Mordecai went his way, and did according to all that Esther had commanded him.
  764. EST.5:1 - Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king's house, over against the king's house, and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.
  765. EST.5:2 - And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre.
  766. EST.5:3 - Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou, queen Esther? and what is thy request? it shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.
  767. EST.5:4 - And Esther answered, If it seem good unto the king, let the king and Haman come this day unto the banquet that I have prepared for him.
  768. EST.5:5 - Then the king said, Cause Haman to make haste, that he may do as Esther hath said. So the king and Haman came to the banquet that Esther had prepared.
  769. EST.5:6 - And the king said unto Esther at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee, and what is thy request? even to the half of the kingdom it shall be performed.
  770. EST.5:7 - Then answered Esther, and said, My petition and my request is;
  771. EST.5:8 - If I have found favour in the sight of the king, and if it please the king to grant my petition, and to perform my request, let the king and Haman come to the banquet that I shall prepare for them, and I will do tomorrow as the king hath said.
  772. EST.5:9 - Then went Haman forth that day joyful and with a glad heart, but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king's gate, that he stood not up, nor moved for him, he was full of indignation against Mordecai.
  773. EST.5:10 - Nevertheless Haman refrained himself, and when he came home, he sent and called for his friends, and Zeresh his wife.
  774. EST.5:11 - And Haman told them of the glory of his riches, and the multitude of his children, and all the things wherein the king had promoted him, and how he had advanced him above the princes and servants of the king.
  775. EST.5:12 - Haman said moreover, Yea, Esther the queen did let no man come in with the king unto the banquet that she had prepared but myself; and to morrow am I invited unto her also with the king.
  776. EST.5:13 - Yet all this availeth me nothing, so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate.
  777. EST.5:14 - Then said Zeresh his wife and all his friends unto him, Let a gallows be made of fifty cubits high, and tomorrow speak thou unto the king that Mordecai may be hanged thereon, then go thou in merrily with the king unto the banquet. And the thing pleased Haman; and he caused the gallows to be made.
  778. EST.6:1 - On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.
  779. EST.6:2 - And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king's chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus.
  780. EST.6:3 - And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.
  781. EST.6:4 - And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king's house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.
  782. EST.6:5 - And the king's servants said unto him, Behold, Haman standeth in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.
  783. EST.6:6 - So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?
  784. EST.6:7 - And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour,
  785. EST.6:8 - Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his head
  786. EST.6:9 - And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
  787. EST.6:10 - Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king's gate, let nothing fail of all that thou has spoken.
  788. EST.6:11 - Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
  789. EST.6:12 - And Mordecai came again to the king's gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.
  790. EST.6:13 - And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every thing that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.
  791. EST.6:14 - And while they were yet talking with him, came the king's chamberlains, and hasted to bring Haman unto the banquet that Esther had prepared.
  792. EST.7:1 - So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen.
  793. EST.7:2 - And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee, and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom.
  794. EST.7:3 - Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request
  795. EST.7:4 - For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.
  796. EST.7:5 - Then the king Ahasuerus answered and said unto Esther the queen, Who is he, and where is he, that durst presume in his heart to do so?
  797. EST.7:6 - And Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen.
  798. EST.7:7 - And the king arising from the banquet of wine in his wrath went into the palace garden, and Haman stood up to make request for his life to Esther the queen; for he saw that there was evil determined against him by the king.
  799. EST.7:8 - Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was. Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house? As the word went out of the king's mouth, they covered Haman's face.
  800. EST.7:9 - And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon.
  801. EST.7:10 - So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified.
  802. EST.8:1 - On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her.
  803. EST.8:2 - And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.
  804. EST.8:3 - And Esther spake yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews.
  805. EST.8:4 - Then the king held out the golden sceptre toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king,
  806. EST.8:5 - And said, If it please the king, and if I have found favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces
  807. EST.8:6 - For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?
  808. EST.8:7 - Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews.
  809. EST.8:8 - Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring, for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse.
  810. EST.8:9 - Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth day thereof; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded unto the Jews, and to the lieutenants, and the deputies and rulers of the provinces which are from India unto Ethiopia, an hundred twenty and seven provinces, unto every province according to the writing thereof, and unto every people after their language, and to the Jews according to their writing, and according to their language.
  811. EST.8:10 - And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus' name, and sealed it with the king's ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries
  812. EST.8:11 - Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay, and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, both little ones and women, and to take the spoil of them for a prey,
  813. EST.8:12 - Upon one day in all the provinces of king Ahasuerus, namely, upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar.
  814. EST.8:13 - The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, and that the Jews should be ready against that day to avenge themselves on their enemies.
  815. EST.8:14 - So the posts that rode upon mules and camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king's commandment. And the decree was given at Shushan the palace.
  816. EST.8:15 - And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple, and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad.
  817. EST.8:16 - The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.
  818. EST.8:17 - And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.
  819. EST.9:1 - Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king's commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)
  820. EST.9:2 - The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt, and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people.
  821. EST.9:3 - And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them.
  822. EST.9:4 - For Mordecai was great in the king's house, and his fame went out throughout all the provinces, for this man Mordecai waxed greater and greater.
  823. EST.9:5 - Thus the Jews smote all their enemies with the stroke of the sword, and slaughter, and destruction, and did what they would unto those that hated them.
  824. EST.9:6 - And in Shushan the palace the Jews slew and destroyed five hundred men.
  825. EST.9:7 - And Parshandatha, and Dalphon, and Aspatha,
  826. EST.9:8 - And Poratha, and Adalia, and Aridatha,
  827. EST.9:9 - And Parmashta, and Arisai, and Aridai, and Vajezatha,
  828. EST.9:10 - The ten sons of Haman the son of Hammedatha, the enemy of the Jews, slew they; but on the spoil laid they not their hand.
  829. EST.9:11 - On that day the number of those that were slain in Shushan the palace was brought before the king.
  830. EST.9:12 - And the king said unto Esther the queen, The Jews have slain and destroyed five hundred men in Shushan the palace, and the ten sons of Haman; what have they done in the rest of the king's provinces? now what is thy petition? and it shall be granted thee, or what is thy request further? and it shall be done.
  831. EST.9:13 - Then said Esther, If it please the king, let it be granted to the Jews which are in Shushan to do tomorrow also according unto this day's decree, and let Haman's ten sons be hanged upon the gallows.
  832. EST.9:14 - And the king commanded it so to be done, and the decree was given at Shushan; and they hanged Haman's ten sons.
  833. EST.9:15 - For the Jews that were in Shushan gathered themselves together on the fourteenth day also of the month Adar, and slew three hundred men at Shushan; but on the prey they laid not their hand.
  834. EST.9:16 - But the other Jews that were in the king's provinces gathered themselves together, and stood for their lives, and had rest from their enemies, and slew of their foes seventy and five thousand, but they laid not their hands on the prey,
  835. EST.9:17 - On the thirteenth day of the month Adar; and on the fourteenth day of the same rested they, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.
  836. EST.9:18 - But the Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof; and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.
  837. EST.9:19 - Therefore the Jews of the villages, that dwelt in the unwalled towns, made the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions one to another.
  838. EST.9:20 - And Mordecai wrote these things, and sent letters unto all the Jews that were in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, both nigh and far,
  839. EST.9:21 - To stablish this among them, that they should keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar, and the fifteenth day of the same, yearly,
  840. EST.9:22 - As the days wherein the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month which was turned unto them from sorrow to joy, and from mourning into a good day, that they should make them days of feasting and joy, and of sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.
  841. EST.9:23 - And the Jews undertook to do as they had begun, and as Mordecai had written unto them;
  842. EST.9:24 - Because Haman the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, the enemy of all the Jews, had devised against the Jews to destroy them, and had cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, and to destroy them;
  843. EST.9:25 - But when Esther came before the king, he commanded by letters that his wicked device, which he devised against the Jews, should return upon his own head, and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.
  844. EST.9:26 - Wherefore they called these days Purim after the name of Pur. Therefore for all the words of this letter, and of that which they had seen concerning this matter, and which had come unto them,
  845. EST.9:27 - The Jews ordained, and took upon them, and upon their seed, and upon all such as joined themselves unto them, so as it should not fail, that they would keep these two days according to their writing, and according to their appointed time every year;
  846. EST.9:28 - And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed.
  847. EST.9:29 - Then Esther the queen, the daughter of Abihail, and Mordecai the Jew, wrote with all authority, to confirm this second letter of Purim.
  848. EST.9:30 - And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth,
  849. EST.9:31 - To confirm these days of Purim in their times appointed, according as Mordecai the Jew and Esther the queen had enjoined them, and as they had decreed for themselves and for their seed, the matters of the fastings and their cry.
  850. EST.9:32 - And the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim; and it was written in the book.
  851. EST.10:1 - And the king Ahasuerus laid a tribute upon the land, and upon the isles of the sea.
  852. EST.10:2 - And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia?
  853. EST.10:3 - For Mordecai the Jew was next unto king Ahasuerus, and great among the Jews, and accepted of the multitude of his brethren, seeking the wealth of his people, and speaking peace to all his seed.
  854. JOB.1:1 - There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
  855. JOB.1:2 - And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
  856. JOB.1:3 - His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.
  857. JOB.1:4 - And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.
  858. JOB.1:5 - And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all, for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
  859. JOB.1:6 - Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
  860. JOB.1:7 - And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
  861. JOB.1:8 - And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
  862. JOB.1:9 - Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
  863. JOB.1:10 - Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
  864. JOB.1:11 - But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
  865. JOB.1:12 - And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
  866. JOB.1:13 - And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house
  867. JOB.1:14 - And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them
  868. JOB.1:15 - And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
  869. JOB.1:16 - While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
  870. JOB.1:17 - While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
  871. JOB.1:18 - While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house
  872. JOB.1:19 - And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
  873. JOB.1:20 - Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,
  874. JOB.1:21 - And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither, the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
  875. JOB.1:22 - In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
  876. JOB.2:1 - Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.
  877. JOB.2:2 - And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
  878. JOB.2:3 - And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.
  879. JOB.2:4 - And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.
  880. JOB.2:5 - But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.
  881. JOB.2:6 - And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.
  882. JOB.2:7 - So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.
  883. JOB.2:8 - And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes.
  884. JOB.2:9 - Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.
  885. JOB.2:10 - But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
  886. JOB.2:11 - Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite, and Bildad the Shuhite, and Zophar the Naamathite, for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him.
  887. JOB.2:12 - And when they lifted up their eyes afar off, and knew him not, they lifted up their voice, and wept; and they rent every one his mantle, and sprinkled dust upon their heads toward heaven.
  888. JOB.2:13 - So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights, and none spake a word unto him, for they saw that his grief was very great.
  889. JOB.3:1 - After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.
  890. JOB.3:2 - And Job spake, and said,
  891. JOB.3:3 - Let the day perish wherein I was born, and the night in which it was said, There is a man child conceived.
  892. JOB.3:4 - Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it.
  893. JOB.3:5 - Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it.
  894. JOB.3:6 - As for that night, let darkness seize upon it; let it not be joined unto the days of the year, let it not come into the number of the months.
  895. JOB.3:7 - Lo, let that night be solitary, let no joyful voice come therein.
  896. JOB.3:8 - Let them curse it that curse the day, who are ready to raise up their mourning.
  897. JOB.3:9 - Let the stars of the twilight thereof be dark; let it look for light, but have none; neither let it see the dawning of the day
  898. JOB.3:10 - Because it shut not up the doors of my mother's womb, nor hid sorrow from mine eyes.
  899. JOB.3:11 - Why died I not from the womb? why did I not give up the ghost when I came out of the belly?
  900. JOB.3:12 - Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?
  901. JOB.3:13 - For now should I have lain still and been quiet, I should have slept, then had I been at rest,
  902. JOB.3:14 - With kings and counsellers of the earth, which built desolate places for themselves;
  903. JOB.3:15 - Or with princes that had gold, who filled their houses with silver
  904. JOB.3:16 - Or as an hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants which never saw light.
  905. JOB.3:17 - There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.
  906. JOB.3:18 - There the prisoners rest together; they hear not the voice of the oppressor.
  907. JOB.3:19 - The small and great are there; and the servant is free from his master.
  908. JOB.3:20 - Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
  909. JOB.3:21 - Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;
  910. JOB.3:22 - Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?
  911. JOB.3:23 - Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?
  912. JOB.3:24 - For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.
  913. JOB.3:25 - For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
  914. JOB.3:26 - I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
  915. JOB.4:1 - Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
  916. JOB.4:2 - If we assay to commune with thee, wilt thou be grieved? but who can withhold himself from speaking?
  917. JOB.4:3 - Behold, thou hast instructed many, and thou hast strengthened the weak hands.
  918. JOB.4:4 - Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees.
  919. JOB.4:5 - But now it is come upon thee, and thou faintest; it toucheth thee, and thou art troubled.
  920. JOB.4:6 - Is not this thy fear, thy confidence, thy hope, and the uprightness of thy ways?
  921. JOB.4:7 - Remember, I pray thee, who ever perished, being innocent? or where were the righteous cut off?
  922. JOB.4:8 - Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.
  923. JOB.4:9 - By the blast of God they perish, and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed.
  924. JOB.4:10 - The roaring of the lion, and the voice of the fierce lion, and the teeth of the young lions, are broken.
  925. JOB.4:11 - The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad.
  926. JOB.4:12 - Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.
  927. JOB.4:13 - In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,
  928. JOB.4:14 - Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.
  929. JOB.4:15 - Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up
  930. JOB.4:16 - It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof, an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,
  931. JOB.4:17 - Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?
  932. JOB.4:18 - Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly
  933. JOB.4:19 - How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?
  934. JOB.4:20 - They are destroyed from morning to evening, they perish for ever without any regarding it.
  935. JOB.4:21 - Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.
  936. JOB.5:1 - Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?
  937. JOB.5:2 - For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.
  938. JOB.5:3 - I have seen the foolish taking root, but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
  939. JOB.5:4 - His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.
  940. JOB.5:5 - Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.
  941. JOB.5:6 - Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;
  942. JOB.5:7 - Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
  943. JOB.5:8 - I would seek unto God, and unto God would I commit my cause
  944. JOB.5:9 - Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number
  945. JOB.5:10 - Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields
  946. JOB.5:11 - To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety.
  947. JOB.5:12 - He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
  948. JOB.5:13 - He taketh the wise in their own craftiness, and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.
  949. JOB.5:14 - They meet with darkness in the daytime, and grope in the noonday as in the night.
  950. JOB.5:15 - But he saveth the poor from the sword, from their mouth, and from the hand of the mighty.
  951. JOB.5:16 - So the poor hath hope, and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.
  952. JOB.5:17 - Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth, therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty
  953. JOB.5:18 - For he maketh sore, and bindeth up, he woundeth, and his hands make whole.
  954. JOB.5:19 - He shall deliver thee in six troubles, yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.
  955. JOB.5:20 - In famine he shall redeem thee from death, and in war from the power of the sword.
  956. JOB.5:21 - Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue, neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.
  957. JOB.5:22 - At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh, neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth.
  958. JOB.5:23 - For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.
  959. JOB.5:24 - And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin.
  960. JOB.5:25 - Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth.
  961. JOB.5:26 - Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season.

  967. JOB.6:5 - Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder?
  968. JOB.6:6 - Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?
  969. JOB.6:7 - The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.
  970. JOB.6:8 - Oh that I might have my request; and that God would grant me the thing that I long for!
  971. JOB.6:9 - Even that it would please God to destroy me; that he would let loose his hand, and cut me off!
  972. JOB.6:10 - Then should I yet have comfort; yea, I would harden myself in sorrow, let him not spare; for I have not concealed the words of the Holy One.
  973. JOB.6:11 - What is my strength, that I should hope? and what is mine end, that I should prolong my life?
  974. JOB.6:12 - Is my strength the strength of stones? or is my flesh of brass?
  975. JOB.6:13 - Is not my help in me? and is wisdom driven quite from me?
  976. JOB.6:14 - To him that is afflicted pity should be shewed from his friend; but he forsaketh the fear of the Almighty.
  977. JOB.6:15 - My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, and as the stream of brooks they pass away;
  978. JOB.6:16 - Which are blackish by reason of the ice, and wherein the snow is hid
  979. JOB.6:17 - What time they wax warm, they vanish, when it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.
  980. JOB.6:18 - The paths of their way are turned aside; they go to nothing, and perish.
  981. JOB.6:19 - The troops of Tema looked, the companies of Sheba waited for them.
  982. JOB.6:20 - They were confounded because they had hoped; they came thither, and were ashamed.
  983. JOB.6:21 - For now ye are nothing; ye see my casting down, and are afraid.
  984. JOB.6:22 - Did I say, Bring unto me? or, Give a reward for me of your substance?
  985. JOB.6:23 - Or, Deliver me from the enemy's hand? or, Redeem me from the hand of the mighty?
  986. JOB.6:24 - Teach me, and I will hold my tongue, and cause me to understand wherein I have erred.
  987. JOB.6:25 - How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?
  988. JOB.6:26 - Do ye imagine to reprove words, and the speeches of one that is desperate, which are as wind?
  989. JOB.6:27 - Yea, ye overwhelm the fatherless, and ye dig a pit for your friend.
  990. JOB.6:28 - Now therefore be content, look upon me; for it is evident unto you if I lie.
  991. JOB.6:29 - Return, I pray you, let it not be iniquity; yea, return again, my righteousness is in it.
  992. JOB.6:30 - Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?
  993. JOB.7:1 - Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?
  994. JOB.7:2 - As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work
  995. JOB.7:3 - So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.
  996. JOB.7:4 - When I lie down, I say, When shall I arise, and the night be gone? and I am full of tossings to and fro unto the dawning of the day.
  997. JOB.7:5 - My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust; my skin is broken, and become loathsome.
  998. JOB.7:6 - My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.
  999. JOB.7:7 - O remember that my life is wind, mine eye shall no more see good.
  1000. JOB.7:8 - The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more, thine eyes are upon me, and I am not.
  1001. JOB.7:9 - As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away, so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more.
  1002. JOB.7:10 - He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.
  1003. JOB.7:11 - Therefore I will not refrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
  1004. JOB.7:12 - Am I a sea, or a whale, that thou settest a watch over me?
  1005. JOB.7:13 - When I say, My bed shall comfort me, my couch shall ease my complaint;
  1006. JOB.7:14 - Then thou scarest me with dreams, and terrifiest me through visions
  1007. JOB.7:15 - So that my soul chooseth strangling, and death rather than my life.
  1008. JOB.7:16 - I loathe it; I would not live alway, let me alone; for my days are vanity.
  1009. JOB.7:17 - What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?
  1010. JOB.7:18 - And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?
  1011. JOB.7:19 - How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?
  1012. JOB.7:20 - I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?
  1013. JOB.7:21 - And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away mine iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.
  1014. JOB.8:1 - Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
  1015. JOB.8:2 - How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?
  1016. JOB.8:3 - Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?
  1017. JOB.8:4 - If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;
  1018. JOB.8:5 - If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;
  1019. JOB.8:6 - If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.
  1020. JOB.8:7 - Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
  1021. JOB.8:8 - For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers
  1022. JOB.8:9 - (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow )
  1023. JOB.8:10 - Shall not they teach thee, and tell thee, and utter words out of their heart?
  1024. JOB.8:11 - Can the rush grow up without mire? can the flag grow without water?
  1025. JOB.8:12 - Whilst it is yet in his greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb.
  1026. JOB.8:13 - So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish
  1027. JOB.8:14 - Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.
  1028. JOB.8:15 - He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand, he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
  1029. JOB.8:16 - He is green before the sun, and his branch shooteth forth in his garden.
  1030. JOB.8:17 - His roots are wrapped about the heap, and seeth the place of stones.
  1031. JOB.8:18 - If he destroy him from his place, then it shall deny him, saying, I have not seen thee.
  1032. JOB.8:19 - Behold, this is the joy of his way, and out of the earth shall others grow.
  1033. JOB.8:20 - Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers
  1034. JOB.8:21 - Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.
  1035. JOB.8:22 - They that hate thee shall be clothed with shame; and the dwelling place of the wicked shall come to nought.
  1036. JOB.9:1 - Then Job answered and said,
  1037. JOB.9:2 - I know it is so of a truth, but how should man be just with God?
  1038. JOB.9:3 - If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand.
  1039. JOB.9:4 - He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength, who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?
  1040. JOB.9:5 - Which removeth the mountains, and they know not, which overturneth them in his anger.
  1041. JOB.9:6 - Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
  1042. JOB.9:7 - Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars.
  1043. JOB.9:8 - Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea.
  1044. JOB.9:9 - Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.
  1045. JOB.9:10 - Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.
  1046. JOB.9:11 - Lo, he goeth by me, and I see him not, he passeth on also, but I perceive him not.
  1047. JOB.9:12 - Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?
  1048. JOB.9:13 - If God will not withdraw his anger, the proud helpers do stoop under him.
  1049. JOB.9:14 - How much less shall I answer him, and choose out my words to reason with him?
  1050. JOB.9:15 - Whom, though I were righteous, yet would I not answer, but I would make supplication to my judge.
  1051. JOB.9:16 - If I had called, and he had answered me; yet would I not believe that he had hearkened unto my voice.
  1052. JOB.9:17 - For he breaketh me with a tempest, and multiplieth my wounds without cause.
  1053. JOB.9:18 - He will not suffer me to take my breath, but filleth me with bitterness.
  1054. JOB.9:19 - If I speak of strength, lo, he is strong, and if of judgment, who shall set me a time to plead?
  1055. JOB.9:20 - If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me, if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.
  1056. JOB.9:21 - Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul, I would despise my life.
  1057. JOB.9:22 - This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.
  1058. JOB.9:23 - If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
  1059. JOB.9:24 - The earth is given into the hand of the wicked, he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?
  1060. JOB.9:25 - Now my days are swifter than a post, they flee away, they see no good.
  1061. JOB.9:26 - They are passed away as the swift ships, as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.
  1062. JOB.9:27 - If I say, I will forget my complaint, I will leave off my heaviness, and comfort myself
  1063. JOB.9:28 - I am afraid of all my sorrows, I know that thou wilt not hold me innocent.
  1064. JOB.9:29 - If I be wicked, why then labour I in vain?
  1065. JOB.9:30 - If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean;
  1066. JOB.9:31 - Yet shalt thou plunge me in the ditch, and mine own clothes shall abhor me.
  1067. JOB.9:32 - For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.
  1068. JOB.9:33 - Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.
  1069. JOB.9:34 - Let him take his rod away from me, and let not his fear terrify me
  1070. JOB.9:35 - Then would I speak, and not fear him; but it is not so with me.
  1071. JOB.10:1 - My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
  1072. JOB.10:2 - I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; shew me wherefore thou contendest with me.
  1073. JOB.10:3 - Is it good unto thee that thou shouldest oppress, that thou shouldest despise the work of thine hands, and shine upon the counsel of the wicked?
  1074. JOB.10:4 - Hast thou eyes of flesh? or seest thou as man seeth?
  1075. JOB.10:5 - Are thy days as the days of man? are thy years as man's days,
  1076. JOB.10:6 - That thou inquirest after mine iniquity, and searchest after my sin?
  1077. JOB.10:7 - Thou knowest that I am not wicked; and there is none that can deliver out of thine hand.
  1078. JOB.10:8 - Thine hands have made me and fashioned me together round about; yet thou dost destroy me.
  1079. JOB.10:9 - Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again?
  1080. JOB.10:10 - Hast thou not poured me out as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
  1081. JOB.10:11 - Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.
  1082. JOB.10:12 - Thou hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.
  1083. JOB.10:13 - And these things hast thou hid in thine heart, I know that this is with thee.
  1084. JOB.10:14 - If I sin, then thou markest me, and thou wilt not acquit me from mine iniquity.
  1085. JOB.10:15 - If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction;
  1086. JOB.10:16 - For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion, and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
  1087. JOB.10:17 - Thou renewest thy witnesses against me, and increasest thine indignation upon me; changes and war are against me.
  1088. JOB.10:18 - Wherefore then hast thou brought me forth out of the womb? Oh that I had given up the ghost, and no eye had seen me!
  1089. JOB.10:19 - I should have been as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
  1090. JOB.10:20 - Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little,
  1091. JOB.10:21 - Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death;
  1092. JOB.10:22 - A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness.
  1093. JOB.11:1 - Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
  1094. JOB.11:2 - Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should a man full of talk be justified?
  1095. JOB.11:3 - Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed?
  1096. JOB.11:4 - For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes.
  1097. JOB.11:5 - But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against thee;
  1098. JOB.11:6 - And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth.
  1099. JOB.11:7 - Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection?
  1100. JOB.11:8 - It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know?
  1101. JOB.11:9 - The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
  1102. JOB.11:10 - If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him?
  1103. JOB.11:11 - For he knoweth vain men, he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it?
  1104. JOB.11:12 - For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt.
  1105. JOB.11:13 - If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him;
  1106. JOB.11:14 - If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.
  1107. JOB.11:15 - For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be stedfast, and shalt not fear
  1108. JOB.11:16 - Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away
  1109. JOB.11:17 - And thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning.
  1110. JOB.11:18 - And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.
  1111. JOB.11:19 - Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall make thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee.
  1112. JOB.11:20 - But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
  1113. JOB.12:1 - And Job answered and said,
  1114. JOB.12:2 - No doubt but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you.
  1115. JOB.12:3 - But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you, yea, who knoweth not such things as these?
  1116. JOB.12:4 - I am as one mocked of his neighbour, who calleth upon God, and he answereth him, the just upright man is laughed to scorn.
  1117. JOB.12:5 - He that is ready to slip with his feet is as a lamp despised in the thought of him that is at ease.
  1118. JOB.12:6 - The tabernacles of robbers prosper, and they that provoke God are secure; into whose hand God bringeth abundantly.
  1119. JOB.12:7 - But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee
  1120. JOB.12:8 - Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee, and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
  1121. JOB.12:9 - Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this?
  1122. JOB.12:10 - In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.
  1123. JOB.12:11 - Doth not the ear try words? and the mouth taste his meat?
  1124. JOB.12:12 - With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.
  1125. JOB.12:13 - With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
  1126. JOB.12:14 - Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again, he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening.
  1127. JOB.12:15 - Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up, also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.
  1128. JOB.12:16 - With him is strength and wisdom, the deceived and the deceiver are his.
  1129. JOB.12:17 - He leadeth counsellers away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools.
  1130. JOB.12:18 - He looseth the bond of kings, and girdeth their loins with a girdle.
  1131. JOB.12:19 - He leadeth princes away spoiled, and overthroweth the mighty.
  1132. JOB.12:20 - He removeth away the speech of the trusty, and taketh away the understanding of the aged.
  1133. JOB.12:21 - He poureth contempt upon princes, and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.
  1134. JOB.12:22 - He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.
  1135. JOB.12:23 - He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them, he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again.
  1136. JOB.12:24 - He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.
  1137. JOB.12:25 - They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.
  1138. JOB.13:1 - Lo, mine eye hath seen all this, mine ear hath heard and understood it.
  1139. JOB.13:2 - What ye know, the same do I know also, I am not inferior unto you.
  1140. JOB.13:3 - Surely I would speak to the Almighty, and I desire to reason with God.
  1141. JOB.13:4 - But ye are forgers of lies, ye are all physicians of no value.
  1142. JOB.13:5 - O that ye would altogether hold your peace! and it should be your wisdom.
  1143. JOB.13:6 - Hear now my reasoning, and hearken to the pleadings of my lips.
  1144. JOB.13:7 - Will ye speak wickedly for God? and talk deceitfully for him?
  1145. JOB.13:8 - Will ye accept his person? will ye contend for God?
  1146. JOB.13:9 - Is it good that he should search you out? or as one man mocketh another, do ye so mock him?
  1147. JOB.13:10 - He will surely reprove you, if ye do secretly accept persons.
  1148. JOB.13:11 - Shall not his excellency make you afraid? and his dread fall upon you?
  1149. JOB.13:12 - Your remembrances are like unto ashes, your bodies to bodies of clay.
  1150. JOB.13:13 - Hold your peace, let me alone, that I may speak, and let come on me what will.
  1151. JOB.13:14 - Wherefore do I take my flesh in my teeth, and put my life in mine hand?
  1152. JOB.13:15 - Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him, but I will maintain mine own ways before him.
  1153. JOB.13:16 - He also shall be my salvation, for an hypocrite shall not come before him.
  1154. JOB.13:17 - Hear diligently my speech, and my declaration with your ears.
  1155. JOB.13:18 - Behold now, I have ordered my cause; I know that I shall be justified.
  1156. JOB.13:19 - Who is he that will plead with me? for now, if I hold my tongue, I shall give up the ghost.
  1157. JOB.13:20 - Only do not two things unto me, then will I not hide myself from thee.
  1158. JOB.13:21 - Withdraw thine hand far from me, and let not thy dread make me afraid.
  1159. JOB.13:22 - Then call thou, and I will answer, or let me speak, and answer thou me.
  1160. JOB.13:23 - How many are mine iniquities and sins? make me to know my transgression and my sin.
  1161. JOB.13:24 - Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and holdest me for thine enemy?
  1162. JOB.13:25 - Wilt thou break a leaf driven to and fro? and wilt thou pursue the dry stubble?
  1163. JOB.13:26 - For thou writest bitter things against me, and makest me to possess the iniquities of my youth.
  1164. JOB.13:27 - Thou puttest my feet also in the stocks, and lookest narrowly unto all my paths; thou settest a print upon the heels of my feet.
  1165. JOB.13:28 - And he, as a rotten thing, consumeth, as a garment that is moth eaten.
  1166. JOB.14:1 - Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
  1167. JOB.14:2 - He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down, he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.
  1168. JOB.14:3 - And dost thou open thine eyes upon such an one, and bringest me into judgment with thee?
  1169. JOB.14:4 - Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.
  1170. JOB.14:5 - Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass;
  1171. JOB.14:6 - Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.
  1172. JOB.14:7 - For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
  1173. JOB.14:8 - Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;
  1174. JOB.14:9 - Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
  1175. JOB.14:10 - But man dieth, and wasteth away, yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he?
  1176. JOB.14:11 - As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up
  1177. JOB.14:12 - So man lieth down, and riseth not, till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.
  1178. JOB.14:13 - O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
  1179. JOB.14:14 - If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
  1180. JOB.14:15 - Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee, thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.
  1181. JOB.14:16 - For now thou numberest my steps, dost thou not watch over my sin?
  1182. JOB.14:17 - My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity.
  1183. JOB.14:18 - And surely the mountain falling cometh to nought, and the rock is removed out of his place.
  1184. JOB.14:19 - The waters wear the stones, thou washest away the things which grow out of the dust of the earth; and thou destroyest the hope of man.
  1185. JOB.14:20 - Thou prevailest for ever against him, and he passeth, thou changest his countenance, and sendest him away.
  1186. JOB.14:21 - His sons come to honour, and he knoweth it not; and they are brought low, but he perceiveth it not of them.
  1187. JOB.14:22 - But his flesh upon him shall have pain, and his soul within him shall mourn.
  1188. JOB.15:1 - Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
  1189. JOB.15:2 - Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?
  1190. JOB.15:3 - Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?
  1191. JOB.15:4 - Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.
  1192. JOB.15:5 - For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.
  1193. JOB.15:6 - Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I, yea, thine own lips testify against thee.
  1194. JOB.15:7 - Art thou the first man that was born? or wast thou made before the hills?
  1195. JOB.15:8 - Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?
  1196. JOB.15:9 - What knowest thou, that we know not? what understandest thou, which is not in us?
  1197. JOB.15:10 - With us are both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.
  1198. JOB.15:11 - Are the consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee?
  1199. JOB.15:12 - Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at,
  1200. JOB.15:13 - That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest such words go out of thy mouth?
  1201. JOB.15:14 - What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
  1202. JOB.15:15 - Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.
  1203. JOB.15:16 - How much more abominable and filthy is man, which drinketh iniquity like water?
  1204. JOB.15:17 - I will shew thee, hear me; and that which I have seen I will declare;
  1205. JOB.15:18 - Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid it
  1206. JOB.15:19 - Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them.
  1207. JOB.15:20 - The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
  1208. JOB.15:21 - A dreadful sound is in his ears, in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.
  1209. JOB.15:22 - He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword.
  1210. JOB.15:23 - He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.
  1211. JOB.15:24 - Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.
  1212. JOB.15:25 - For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty.
  1213. JOB.15:26 - He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers
  1214. JOB.15:27 - Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks.
  1215. JOB.15:28 - And he dwelleth in desolate cities, and in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps.
  1216. JOB.15:29 - He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.
  1217. JOB.15:30 - He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.
  1218. JOB.15:31 - Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity, for vanity shall be his recompence.
  1219. JOB.15:32 - It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green.
  1220. JOB.15:33 - He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive.

  1222. JOB.15:35 - They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.
  1223. JOB.16:1 - Then Job answered and said,
  1224. JOB.16:2 - I have heard many such things, miserable comforters are ye all.
  1225. JOB.16:3 - Shall vain words have an end? or what emboldeneth thee that thou answerest?
  1226. JOB.16:4 - I also could speak as ye do, if your soul were in my soul's stead, I could heap up words against you, and shake mine head at you.
  1227. JOB.16:5 - But I would strengthen you with my mouth, and the moving of my lips should asswage your grief.
  1228. JOB.16:6 - Though I speak, my grief is not asswaged, and though I forbear, what am I eased?
  1229. JOB.16:7 - But now he hath made me weary, thou hast made desolate all my company.
  1230. JOB.16:8 - And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me, and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.
  1231. JOB.16:9 - He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me, he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.
  1232. JOB.16:10 - They have gaped upon me with their mouth; they have smitten me upon the cheek reproachfully; they have gathered themselves together against me.
  1233. JOB.16:11 - God hath delivered me to the ungodly, and turned me over into the hands of the wicked.
  1234. JOB.16:12 - I was at ease, but he hath broken me asunder, he hath also taken me by my neck, and shaken me to pieces, and set me up for his mark.
  1235. JOB.16:13 - His archers compass me round about, he cleaveth my reins asunder, and doth not spare; he poureth out my gall upon the ground.
  1236. JOB.16:14 - He breaketh me with breach upon breach, he runneth upon me like a giant.
  1237. JOB.16:15 - I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin, and defiled my horn in the dust.
  1238. JOB.16:16 - My face is foul with weeping, and my eyelids is the shadow of death;
  1239. JOB.16:17 - Not for any injustice in mine hands, also my prayer is pure.
  1240. JOB.16:18 - O earth, cover not thou my blood, and let my cry have no place.
  1241. JOB.16:19 - Also now, behold, my witness is in heaven, and my record is on high.
  1242. JOB.16:20 - My friends scorn me, but mine eye poureth out tears unto God.
  1243. JOB.16:21 - O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour!
  1244. JOB.16:22 - When a few years are come, then I shall go the way whence I shall not return.
  1245. JOB.17:1 - My breath is corrupt, my days are extinct, the graves are ready for me.
  1246. JOB.17:2 - Are there not mockers with me? and doth not mine eye continue in their provocation?
  1247. JOB.17:3 - Lay down now, put me in a surety with thee; who is he that will strike hands with me?
  1248. JOB.17:4 - For thou hast hid their heart from understanding, therefore shalt thou not exalt them.
  1249. JOB.17:5 - He that speaketh flattery to his friends, even the eyes of his children shall fail.
  1250. JOB.17:6 - He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.
  1251. JOB.17:7 - Mine eye also is dim by reason of sorrow, and all my members are as a shadow.
  1252. JOB.17:8 - Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite.
  1253. JOB.17:9 - The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
  1254. JOB.17:10 - But as for you all, do ye return, and come now, for I cannot find one wise man among you.
  1255. JOB.17:11 - My days are past, my purposes are broken off, even the thoughts of my heart.
  1256. JOB.17:12 - They change the night into day, the light is short because of darkness.
  1257. JOB.17:13 - If I wait, the grave is mine house, I have made my bed in the darkness.
  1258. JOB.17:14 - I have said to corruption, Thou art my father, to the worm, Thou are my mother, and my sister.
  1259. JOB.17:15 - And where is now my hope? as for my hope, who shall see it?
  1260. JOB.17:16 - They shall go down to the bars of the pit, when our rest together is in the dust.
  1261. JOB.18:1 - Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,
  1262. JOB.18:2 - How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak.
  1263. JOB.18:3 - Wherefore are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?
  1264. JOB.18:4 - He teareth himself in his anger, shall the earth be forsaken for thee? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?
  1265. JOB.18:5 - Yea, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.
  1266. JOB.18:6 - The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.
  1267. JOB.18:7 - The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.
  1268. JOB.18:8 - For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walketh upon a snare.
  1269. JOB.18:9 - The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.
  1270. JOB.18:10 - The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.
  1271. JOB.18:11 - Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.
  1272. JOB.18:12 - His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side.
  1273. JOB.18:13 - It shall devour the strength of his skin, even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.

  1279. JOB.18:19 - He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.
  1280. JOB.18:20 - They that come after him shall be astonied at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.
  1281. JOB.18:21 - Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knoweth not God.
  1282. JOB.19:1 - Then Job answered and said,
  1283. JOB.19:2 - How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?
  1284. JOB.19:3 - These ten times have ye reproached me, ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me.
  1285. JOB.19:4 - And be it indeed that I have erred, mine error remaineth with myself.
  1286. JOB.19:5 - If indeed ye will magnify yourselves against me, and plead against me my reproach
  1287. JOB.19:6 - Know now that God hath overthrown me, and hath compassed me with his net.
  1288. JOB.19:7 - Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard, I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
  1289. JOB.19:8 - He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
  1290. JOB.19:9 - He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
  1291. JOB.19:10 - He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone, and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.
  1292. JOB.19:11 - He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
  1293. JOB.19:12 - His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.
  1294. JOB.19:13 - He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.
  1295. JOB.19:14 - My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
  1296. JOB.19:15 - They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger, I am an alien in their sight.
  1297. JOB.19:16 - I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.
  1298. JOB.19:17 - My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children's sake of mine own body.
  1299. JOB.19:18 - Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.
  1300. JOB.19:19 - All my inward friends abhorred me, and they whom I loved are turned against me.
  1301. JOB.19:20 - My bone cleaveth to my skin and to my flesh, and I am escaped with the skin of my teeth.
  1302. JOB.19:21 - Have pity upon me, have pity upon me, O ye my friends; for the hand of God hath touched me.
  1303. JOB.19:22 - Why do ye persecute me as God, and are not satisfied with my flesh?
  1304. JOB.19:23 - Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!
  1305. JOB.19:24 - That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!
  1306. JOB.19:25 - For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth
  1307. JOB.19:26 - And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God
  1308. JOB.19:27 - Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.
  1309. JOB.19:28 - But ye should say, Why persecute we him, seeing the root of the matter is found in me?
  1310. JOB.19:29 - Be ye afraid of the sword, for wrath bringeth the punishments of the sword, that ye may know there is a judgment.
  1311. JOB.20:1 - Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
  1312. JOB.20:2 - Therefore do my thoughts cause me to answer, and for this I make haste.
  1313. JOB.20:3 - I have heard the check of my reproach, and the spirit of my understanding causeth me to answer.
  1314. JOB.20:4 - Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
  1315. JOB.20:5 - That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
  1316. JOB.20:6 - Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
  1317. JOB.20:7 - Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung, they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
  1318. JOB.20:8 - He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found, yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
  1319. JOB.20:9 - The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
  1320. JOB.20:10 - His children shall seek to please the poor, and his hands shall restore their goods.
  1321. JOB.20:11 - His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.
  1322. JOB.20:12 - Though wickedness be sweet in his mouth, though he hide it under his tongue;
  1323. JOB.20:13 - Though he spare it, and forsake it not; but keep it still within his mouth
  1324. JOB.20:14 - Yet his meat in his bowels is turned, it is the gall of asps within him.
  1325. JOB.20:15 - He hath swallowed down riches, and he shall vomit them up again, God shall cast them out of his belly.
  1326. JOB.20:16 - He shall suck the poison of asps, the viper's tongue shall slay him.
  1327. JOB.20:17 - He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter.
  1328. JOB.20:18 - That which he laboured for shall he restore, and shall not swallow it down, according to his substance shall the restitution be, and he shall not rejoice therein.
  1329. JOB.20:19 - Because he hath oppressed and hath forsaken the poor; because he hath violently taken away an house which he builded not;
  1330. JOB.20:20 - Surely he shall not feel quietness in his belly, he shall not save of that which he desired.
  1331. JOB.20:21 - There shall none of his meat be left; therefore shall no man look for his goods.
  1332. JOB.20:22 - In the fulness of his sufficiency he shall be in straits, every hand of the wicked shall come upon him.
  1333. JOB.20:23 - When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him, and shall rain it upon him while he is eating.
  1334. JOB.20:24 - He shall flee from the iron weapon, and the bow of steel shall strike him through.
  1335. JOB.20:25 - It is drawn, and cometh out of the body; yea, the glittering sword cometh out of his gall, terrors are upon him.
  1336. JOB.20:26 - All darkness shall be hid in his secret places, a fire not blown shall consume him; it shall go ill with him that is left in his tabernacle.
  1337. JOB.20:27 - The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him.
  1338. JOB.20:28 - The increase of his house shall depart, and his goods shall flow away in the day of his wrath.
  1339. JOB.20:29 - This is the portion of a wicked man from God, and the heritage appointed unto him by God.
  1340. JOB.21:1 - But Job answered and said,
  1341. JOB.21:2 - Hear diligently my speech, and let this be your consolations.
  1342. JOB.21:3 - Suffer me that I may speak; and after that I have spoken, mock on.
  1343. JOB.21:4 - As for me, is my complaint to man? and if it were so, why should not my spirit be troubled?
  1344. JOB.21:5 - Mark me, and be astonished, and lay your hand upon your mouth.
  1345. JOB.21:6 - Even when I remember I am afraid, and trembling taketh hold on my flesh.
  1346. JOB.21:7 - Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power?
  1347. JOB.21:8 - Their seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before their eyes.
  1348. JOB.21:9 - Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon them.
  1349. JOB.21:10 - Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth not her calf.
  1350. JOB.21:11 - They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.
  1351. JOB.21:12 - They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of the organ.
  1352. JOB.21:13 - They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.
  1353. JOB.21:14 - Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.
  1354. JOB.21:15 - What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
  1355. JOB.21:16 - Lo, their good is not in their hand, the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
  1356. JOB.21:17 - How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.
  1357. JOB.21:18 - They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.
  1358. JOB.21:19 - God layeth up his iniquity for his children, he rewardeth him, and he shall know it.
  1359. JOB.21:20 - His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty.
  1360. JOB.21:21 - For what pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his months is cut off in the midst?
  1361. JOB.21:22 - Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those that are high.
  1362. JOB.21:23 - One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.
  1363. JOB.21:24 - His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow.
  1364. JOB.21:25 - And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.
  1365. JOB.21:26 - They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.
  1366. JOB.21:27 - Behold, I know your thoughts, and the devices which ye wrongfully imagine against me.
  1367. JOB.21:28 - For ye say, Where is the house of the prince? and where are the dwelling places of the wicked?
  1368. JOB.21:29 - Have ye not asked them that go by the way? and do ye not know their tokens,
  1369. JOB.21:30 - That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.
  1370. JOB.21:31 - Who shall declare his way to his face? and who shall repay him what he hath done?
  1371. JOB.21:32 - Yet shall he be brought to the grave, and shall remain in the tomb.
  1372. JOB.21:33 - The clods of the valley shall be sweet unto him, and every man shall draw after him, as there are innumerable before him.
  1373. JOB.21:34 - How then comfort ye me in vain, seeing in your answers there remaineth falsehood?
  1374. JOB.22:1 - Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said,
  1375. JOB.22:2 - Can a man be profitable unto God, as he that is wise may be profitable unto himself?
  1376. JOB.22:3 - Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that thou art righteous? or is it gain to him that thou makest thy ways perfect?
  1377. JOB.22:4 - Will he reprove thee for fear of thee? will he enter with thee into judgment?
  1378. JOB.22:5 - Is not thy wickedness great? and thine iniquities infinite?
  1379. JOB.22:6 - For thou hast taken a pledge from thy brother for nought, and stripped the naked of their clothing.
  1380. JOB.22:7 - Thou hast not given water to the weary to drink, and thou hast withholden bread from the hungry.
  1381. JOB.22:8 - But as for the mighty man, he had the earth; and the honourable man dwelt in it.
  1382. JOB.22:9 - Thou has sent widows away empty, and the arms of the fatherless have been broken.
  1383. JOB.22:10 - Therefore snares are round about thee, and sudden fear troubleth thee;
  1384. JOB.22:11 - Or darkness, that thou canst not see; and abundance of waters cover thee.
  1385. JOB.22:12 - Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!
  1386. JOB.22:13 - And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?
  1387. JOB.22:14 - Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the circuit of heaven.
  1388. JOB.22:15 - Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden?
  1389. JOB.22:16 - Which were cut down out of time, whose foundation was overflown with a flood
  1390. JOB.22:17 - Which said unto God, Depart from us, and what can the Almighty do for them?
  1391. JOB.22:18 - Yet he filled their houses with good things, but the counsel of the wicked is far from me.
  1392. JOB.22:19 - The righteous see it, and are glad, and the innocent laugh them to scorn.
  1393. JOB.22:20 - Whereas our substance is not cut down, but the remnant of them the fire consumeth.
  1394. JOB.22:21 - Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace, thereby good shall come unto thee.
  1395. JOB.22:22 - Receive, I pray thee, the law from his mouth, and lay up his words in thine heart.
  1396. JOB.22:23 - If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up, thou shalt put away iniquity far from thy tabernacles.
  1397. JOB.22:24 - Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust, and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks.
  1398. JOB.22:25 - Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver.
  1399. JOB.22:26 - For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.
  1400. JOB.22:27 - Thou shalt make thy prayer unto him, and he shall hear thee, and thou shalt pay thy vows.
  1401. JOB.22:28 - Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee, and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
  1402. JOB.22:29 - When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.
  1403. JOB.22:30 - He shall deliver the island of the innocent, and it is delivered by the pureness of thine hands.
  1404. JOB.23:1 - Then Job answered and said,
  1405. JOB.23:2 - Even to day is my complaint bitter, my stroke is heavier than my groaning.
  1406. JOB.23:3 - Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!
  1407. JOB.23:4 - I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
  1408. JOB.23:5 - I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.
  1409. JOB.23:6 - Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me.
  1410. JOB.23:7 - There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be delivered for ever from my judge.
  1411. JOB.23:8 - Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him
  1412. JOB.23:9 - On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him, he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him
  1413. JOB.23:10 - But he knoweth the way that I take, when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
  1414. JOB.23:11 - My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not declined.
  1415. JOB.23:12 - Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
  1416. JOB.23:13 - But he is in one mind, and who can turn him? and what his soul desireth, even that he doeth.
  1417. JOB.23:14 - For he performeth the thing that is appointed for me, and many such things are with him.
  1418. JOB.23:15 - Therefore am I troubled at his presence, when I consider, I am afraid of him.
  1419. JOB.23:16 - For God maketh my heart soft, and the Almighty troubleth me
  1420. JOB.23:17 - Because I was not cut off before the darkness, neither hath he covered the darkness from my face.
  1421. JOB.24:1 - Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
  1422. JOB.24:2 - Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.

  1617. JOB.32:5 - When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, then his wrath was kindled.
  1618. JOB.32:6 - And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid, and durst not shew you mine opinion.

  1654. JOB.33:20 - So that his life abhorreth bread, and his soul dainty meat.
  1655. JOB.33:21 - His flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen; and his bones that were not seen stick out.

  1671. JOB.34:4 - Let us choose to us judgment, let us know among ourselves what is good.

  1674. JOB.34:7 - What man is like Job, who drinketh up scorning like water?
  1675. JOB.34:8 - Which goeth in company with the workers of iniquity, and walketh with wicked men.
  1676. JOB.34:9 - For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.
  1677. JOB.34:10 - Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding, far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.
  1678. JOB.34:11 - For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.
  1679. JOB.34:12 - Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment.
  1680. JOB.34:13 - Who hath given him a charge over the earth? or who hath disposed the whole world?
  1681. JOB.34:14 - If he set his heart upon man, if he gather unto himself his spirit and his breath;

  1696. JOB.34:29 - When he giveth quietness, who then can make trouble? and when he hideth his face, who then can behold him? whether it be done against a nation, or against a man only

  1701. JOB.34:34 - Let men of understanding tell me, and let a wise man hearken unto me.
  1702. JOB.34:35 - Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words were without wisdom.
  1703. JOB.34:36 - My desire is that Job may be tried unto the end because of his answers for wicked men.
  1704. JOB.34:37 - For he addeth rebellion unto his sin, he clappeth his hands among us, and multiplieth his words against God.
  1705. JOB.35:1 - Elihu spake moreover, and said,
  1706. JOB.35:2 - Thinkest thou this to be right, that thou saidst, My righteousness is more than God's?
  1707. JOB.35:3 - For thou saidst, What advantage will it be unto thee? and, What profit shall I have, if I be cleansed from my sin?

  1709. JOB.35:5 - Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou.
  1710. JOB.35:6 - If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him?
  1711. JOB.35:7 - If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand?
  1712. JOB.35:8 - Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.
  1713. JOB.35:9 - By reason of the multitude of oppressions they make the oppressed to cry, they cry out by reason of the arm of the mighty.
  1714. JOB.35:10 - But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;
  1715. JOB.35:11 - Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?
  1716. JOB.35:12 - There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men.
  1717. JOB.35:13 - Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.
  1718. JOB.35:14 - Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him.
  1719. JOB.35:15 - But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity
  1720. JOB.35:16 - Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.
  1721. JOB.36:1 - Elihu also proceeded, and said,
  1722. JOB.36:2 - Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf.

  1729. JOB.36:9 - Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.
  1730. JOB.36:10 - He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.
  1731. JOB.36:11 - If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
  1732. JOB.36:12 - But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

  2101. PSA.17:14 - From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure, they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

  2114. PSA.18:12 - At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
  2115. PSA.18:13 - The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.
  2116. PSA.18:14 - Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

  2122. PSA.18:20 - The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me.
  2123. PSA.18:21 - For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God.
  2124. PSA.18:22 - For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me.
  2125. PSA.18:23 - I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

  2130. PSA.18:28 - For thou wilt light my candle, the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.

  2133. PSA.18:31 - For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
  2134. PSA.18:32 - It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
  2135. PSA.18:33 - He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
  2136. PSA.18:34 - He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

  2190. PSA.22:2 - O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.
  2191. PSA.22:3 - But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.
  2192. PSA.22:4 - Our fathers trusted in thee, they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.
  2193. PSA.22:5 - They cried unto thee, and were delivered, they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
  2194. PSA.22:6 - But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
  2195. PSA.22:7 - All they that see me laugh me to scorn, they shoot out the lip, they shake the head saying,
  2196. PSA.22:8 - He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him, let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

  2202. PSA.22:14 - I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint, my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.
  2203. PSA.22:15 - My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
  2204. PSA.22:16 - For dogs have compassed me, the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me, they pierced my hands and my feet.
  2205. PSA.22:17 - I may tell all my bones, they look and stare upon me.
  2206. PSA.22:18 - They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.
  2207. PSA.22:19 - But be not thou far from me, O LORD, O my strength, haste thee to help me.
  2208. PSA.22:20 - Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.
  2209. PSA.22:21 - Save me from the lion's mouth, for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.
  2210. PSA.22:22 - I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

  2224. PSA.23:5 - Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies, thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
  2225. PSA.23:6 - Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
  2226. PSA.24:1 - The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
  2227. PSA.24:2 - For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
  2228. PSA.24:3 - Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
  2229. PSA.24:4 - He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
  2230. PSA.24:5 - He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
  2231. PSA.24:6 - This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

  2235. PSA.24:10 - Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
  2236. PSA.25:1 - Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
  2237. PSA.25:2 - O my God, I trust in thee, let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
  2238. PSA.25:3 - Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed, let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
  2239. PSA.25:4 - Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
  2240. PSA.25:5 - Lead me in thy truth, and teach me, for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
  2241. PSA.25:6 - Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
  2242. PSA.25:7 - Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions, according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD.

  2257. PSA.25:22 - Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
  2258. PSA.26:1 - Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity, I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.

  2260. PSA.26:3 - For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes, and I have walked in thy truth.
  2261. PSA.26:4 - I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.
  2262. PSA.26:5 - I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
  2263. PSA.26:6 - I will wash mine hands in innocency, so will I compass thine altar, O LORD
  2264. PSA.26:7 - That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
  2265. PSA.26:8 - LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
  2266. PSA.26:9 - Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men
  2267. PSA.26:10 - In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
  2268. PSA.26:11 - But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity, redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
  2269. PSA.26:12 - My foot standeth in an even place, in the congregations will I bless the LORD.
  2270. PSA.27:1 - The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
  2271. PSA.27:2 - When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
  2272. PSA.27:3 - Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear, though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
  2273. PSA.27:4 - One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.
  2274. PSA.27:5 - For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion, in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
  2275. PSA.27:6 - And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me, therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
  2276. PSA.27:7 - Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice, have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
  2277. PSA.27:8 - When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
  2278. PSA.27:9 - Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger, thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
  2279. PSA.27:10 - When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
  2280. PSA.27:11 - Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
  2281. PSA.27:12 - Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies, for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
  2282. PSA.27:13 - I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
  2283. PSA.27:14 - Wait on the LORD, be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart, wait, I say, on the LORD.
  2284. PSA.28:1 - Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me, lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.
  2285. PSA.28:2 - Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

  2344. PSA.32:5 - I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
  2345. PSA.32:6 - For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found, surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

  2369. PSA.33:19 - To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
  2370. PSA.33:20 - Our soul waiteth for the LORD, he is our help and our shield.
  2371. PSA.33:21 - For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

  2396. PSA.35:2 - Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
  2397. PSA.35:3 - Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me, say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
  2398. PSA.35:4 - Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul, let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
  2399. PSA.35:5 - Let them be as chaff before the wind, and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
  2400. PSA.35:6 - Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.

  2403. PSA.35:9 - And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD, it shall rejoice in his salvation.
  2404. PSA.35:10 - All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
  2405. PSA.35:11 - False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
  2406. PSA.35:12 - They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
  2407. PSA.35:13 - But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth, I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
  2408. PSA.35:14 - I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother, I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
  2409. PSA.35:15 - But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together, yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not
  2410. PSA.35:16 - With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
  2411. PSA.35:17 - Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
  2412. PSA.35:18 - I will give thee thanks in the great congregation, I will praise thee among much people.
  2413. PSA.35:19 - Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me, neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
  2414. PSA.35:20 - For they speak not peace, but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
  2415. PSA.35:21 - Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
  2416. PSA.35:22 - This thou hast seen, O LORD, keep not silence, O Lord, be not far from me.
  2417. PSA.35:23 - Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
  2418. PSA.35:24 - Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
  2419. PSA.35:25 - Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it, let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
  2420. PSA.35:26 - Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt, let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
  2421. PSA.35:27 - Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause, yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
  2422. PSA.35:28 - And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
  2423. PSA.36:1 - The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
  2424. PSA.36:2 - For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.
  2425. PSA.36:3 - The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit, he hath left off to be wise, and to do good.
  2426. PSA.36:4 - He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil.
  2427. PSA.36:5 - Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.
  2428. PSA.36:6 - Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep, O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.
  2429. PSA.36:7 - How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
  2430. PSA.36:8 - They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures.
  2431. PSA.36:9 - For with thee is the fountain of life, in thy light shall we see light.
  2432. PSA.36:10 - O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart.
  2433. PSA.36:11 - Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me.
  2434. PSA.36:12 - There are the workers of iniquity fallen, they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.
  2435. PSA.37:1 - Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
  2436. PSA.37:2 - For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
  2437. PSA.37:3 - Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
  2438. PSA.37:4 - Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
  2439. PSA.37:5 - Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
  2440. PSA.37:6 - And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
  2441. PSA.37:7 - Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him, fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
  2442. PSA.37:8 - Cease from anger, and forsake wrath, fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
  2443. PSA.37:9 - For evildoers shall be cut off, but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.
  2444. PSA.37:10 - For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be, yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
  2445. PSA.37:11 - But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
  2446. PSA.37:12 - The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
  2447. PSA.37:13 - The Lord shall laugh at him, for he seeth that his day is coming.
  2448. PSA.37:14 - The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
  2449. PSA.37:15 - Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
  2450. PSA.37:16 - A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
  2451. PSA.37:17 - For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.
  2452. PSA.37:18 - The LORD knoweth the days of the upright, and their inheritance shall be for ever.
  2453. PSA.37:19 - They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
  2454. PSA.37:20 - But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs, they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.
  2455. PSA.37:21 - The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again, but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
  2456. PSA.37:22 - For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.
  2457. PSA.37:23 - The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and he delighteth in his way.
  2458. PSA.37:24 - Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
  2459. PSA.37:25 - I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
  2460. PSA.37:26 - He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.
  2461. PSA.37:27 - Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.
  2462. PSA.37:28 - For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever, but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.
  2463. PSA.37:29 - The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
  2464. PSA.37:30 - The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
  2465. PSA.37:31 - The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
  2466. PSA.37:32 - The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
  2467. PSA.37:33 - The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.
  2468. PSA.37:34 - Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land, when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.
  2469. PSA.37:35 - I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
  2470. PSA.37:36 - Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not, yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.
  2471. PSA.37:37 - Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.
  2472. PSA.37:38 - But the transgressors shall be destroyed together, the end of the wicked shall be cut off.
  2473. PSA.37:39 - But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD, he is their strength in the time of trouble.
  2474. PSA.37:40 - And the LORD shall help them and deliver them, he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
  2475. PSA.38:1 - O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
  2476. PSA.38:2 - For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.
  2477. PSA.38:3 - There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
  2478. PSA.38:4 - For mine iniquities are gone over mine head, as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
  2479. PSA.38:5 - My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.
  2480. PSA.38:6 - I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.
  2481. PSA.38:7 - For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease, and there is no soundness in my flesh.
  2482. PSA.38:8 - I am feeble and sore broken, I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.
  2483. PSA.38:9 - Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.
  2484. PSA.38:10 - My heart panteth, my strength faileth me, as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
  2485. PSA.38:11 - My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.
  2486. PSA.38:12 - They also that seek after my life lay snares for me, and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.
  2487. PSA.38:13 - But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.
  2488. PSA.38:14 - Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.
  2489. PSA.38:15 - For in thee, O LORD, do I hope, thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
  2490. PSA.38:16 - For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me, when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.
  2491. PSA.38:17 - For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.
  2492. PSA.38:18 - For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
  2493. PSA.38:19 - But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong, and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.
  2494. PSA.38:20 - They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.
  2495. PSA.38:21 - Forsake me not, O LORD, O my God, be not far from me.
  2496. PSA.38:22 - Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
  2497. PSA.39:1 - I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue, I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
  2498. PSA.39:2 - I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
  2499. PSA.39:3 - My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned, then spake I with my tongue,
  2500. PSA.39:4 - LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
  2501. PSA.39:5 - Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee, verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
  2502. PSA.39:6 - Surely every man walketh in a vain shew, surely they are disquieted in vain, he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
  2503. PSA.39:7 - And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
  2504. PSA.39:8 - Deliver me from all my transgressions, make me not the reproach of the foolish.
  2505. PSA.39:9 - I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
  2506. PSA.39:10 - Remove thy stroke away from me, I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
  2507. PSA.39:11 - When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth, surely every man is vanity. Selah.
  2508. PSA.39:12 - Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears, for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
  2509. PSA.39:13 - O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.
  2510. PSA.40:1 - I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
  2511. PSA.40:2 - He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
  2512. PSA.40:3 - And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God, many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
  2513. PSA.40:4 - Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
  2514. PSA.40:5 - Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us - ward, they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee, if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
  2515. PSA.40:6 - Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened, burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
  2516. PSA.40:7 - Then said I, Lo, I come, in the volume of the book it is written of me,
  2517. PSA.40:8 - I delight to do thy will, O my God, yea, thy law is within my heart.
  2518. PSA.40:9 - I have preached righteousness in the great congregation, lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
  2519. PSA.40:10 - I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation, I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
  2520. PSA.40:11 - Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD, let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
  2521. PSA.40:12 - For innumerable evils have compassed me about, mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head, therefore my heart faileth me.
  2522. PSA.40:13 - Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me, O LORD, make haste to help me.
  2523. PSA.40:14 - Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
  2524. PSA.40:15 - Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
  2525. PSA.40:16 - Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee, let such as love thy salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
  2526. PSA.40:17 - But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me, thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
  2527. PSA.41:1 - Blessed is he that considereth the poor, the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
  2528. PSA.41:2 - The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth, and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.
  2529. PSA.41:3 - The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing, thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
  2530. PSA.41:4 - I said, LORD, be merciful unto me, heal my soul; for I have sinned against thee.
  2531. PSA.41:5 - Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
  2532. PSA.41:6 - And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity, his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it.
  2533. PSA.41:7 - All that hate me whisper together against me, against me do they devise my hurt.
  2534. PSA.41:8 - An evil disease, say they, cleaveth fast unto him, and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.
  2535. PSA.41:9 - Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
  2536. PSA.41:10 - But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.
  2537. PSA.41:11 - By this I know that thou favourest me, because mine enemy doth not triumph over me.
  2538. PSA.41:12 - And as for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before thy face for ever.
  2539. PSA.41:13 - Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.
  2540. PSA.42:1 - As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
  2541. PSA.42:2 - My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God, when shall I come and appear before God?
  2542. PSA.42:3 - My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
  2543. PSA.42:4 - When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me, for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
  2544. PSA.42:5 - Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
  2545. PSA.42:6 - O my God, my soul is cast down within me, therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
  2546. PSA.42:7 - Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts, all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
  2547. PSA.42:8 - Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
  2548. PSA.42:9 - I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
  2549. PSA.42:10 - As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
  2550. PSA.42:11 - Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God, for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
  2551. PSA.43:1 - Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation, O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
  2552. PSA.43:2 - For thou art the God of my strength, why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
  2553. PSA.43:3 - O send out thy light and thy truth, let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
  2554. PSA.43:4 - Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy, yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
  2555. PSA.43:5 - Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God, for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
  2556. PSA.44:1 - We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old.
  2557. PSA.44:2 - How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand, and plantedst them; how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out.
  2558. PSA.44:3 - For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them, but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.
  2559. PSA.44:4 - Thou art my King, O God, command deliverances for Jacob.
  2560. PSA.44:5 - Through thee will we push down our enemies, through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.
  2561. PSA.44:6 - For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.
  2562. PSA.44:7 - But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.
  2563. PSA.44:8 - In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah.
  2564. PSA.44:9 - But thou hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.
  2565. PSA.44:10 - Thou makest us to turn back from the enemy, and they which hate us spoil for themselves.
  2566. PSA.44:11 - Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered us among the heathen.
  2567. PSA.44:12 - Thou sellest thy people for nought, and dost not increase thy wealth by their price.
  2568. PSA.44:13 - Thou makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.
  2569. PSA.44:14 - Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people.
  2570. PSA.44:15 - My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
  2571. PSA.44:16 - For the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the enemy and avenger.
  2572. PSA.44:17 - All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee, neither have we dealt falsely in thy covenant.
  2573. PSA.44:18 - Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way;
  2574. PSA.44:19 - Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.
  2575. PSA.44:20 - If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;
  2576. PSA.44:21 - Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.
  2577. PSA.44:22 - Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
  2578. PSA.44:23 - Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever.
  2579. PSA.44:24 - Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?
  2580. PSA.44:25 - For our soul is bowed down to the dust, our belly cleaveth unto the earth.
  2581. PSA.44:26 - Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies' sake.
  2582. PSA.45:1 - My heart is inditing a good matter, I speak of the things which I have made touching the king, my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
  2583. PSA.45:2 - Thou art fairer than the children of men, grace is poured into thy lips, therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
  2584. PSA.45:3 - Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
  2585. PSA.45:4 - And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
  2586. PSA.45:5 - Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.
  2587. PSA.45:6 - Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever, the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
  2588. PSA.45:7 - Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness, therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
  2589. PSA.45:8 - All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
  2590. PSA.45:9 - Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women, upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
  2591. PSA.45:10 - Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;
  2592. PSA.45:11 - So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty, for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.
  2593. PSA.45:12 - And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
  2594. PSA.45:13 - The king's daughter is all glorious within, her clothing is of wrought gold.
  2595. PSA.45:14 - She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework, the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
  2596. PSA.45:15 - With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought, they shall enter into the king's palace.
  2597. PSA.45:16 - Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
  2598. PSA.45:17 - I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations, therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.
  2599. PSA.46:1 - God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
  2600. PSA.46:2 - Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
  2601. PSA.46:3 - Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
  2602. PSA.46:4 - There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
  2603. PSA.46:5 - God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved, God shall help her, and that right early.
  2604. PSA.46:6 - The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved, he uttered his voice, the earth melted.
  2605. PSA.46:7 - The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
  2606. PSA.46:8 - Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.
  2607. PSA.46:9 - He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.
  2608. PSA.46:10 - Be still, and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
  2609. PSA.46:11 - The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
  2610. PSA.47:1 - O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
  2611. PSA.47:2 - For the LORD most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.
  2612. PSA.47:3 - He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
  2613. PSA.47:4 - He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
  2614. PSA.47:5 - God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.
  2615. PSA.47:6 - Sing praises to God, sing praises, sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
  2616. PSA.47:7 - For God is the King of all the earth, sing ye praises with understanding.
  2617. PSA.47:8 - God reigneth over the heathen, God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
  2618. PSA.47:9 - The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham, for the shields of the earth belong unto God, he is greatly exalted.
  2619. PSA.48:1 - Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
  2620. PSA.48:2 - Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
  2621. PSA.48:3 - God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
  2622. PSA.48:4 - For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
  2623. PSA.48:5 - They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
  2624. PSA.48:6 - Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
  2625. PSA.48:7 - Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
  2626. PSA.48:8 - As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God, God will establish it for ever. Selah.
  2627. PSA.48:9 - We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
  2628. PSA.48:10 - According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth, thy right hand is full of righteousness.
  2629. PSA.48:11 - Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
  2630. PSA.48:12 - Walk about Zion, and go round about her, tell the towers thereof.
  2631. PSA.48:13 - Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
  2632. PSA.48:14 - For this God is our God for ever and ever, he will be our guide even unto death.
  2633. PSA.49:1 - Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world
  2634. PSA.49:2 - Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
  2635. PSA.49:3 - My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
  2636. PSA.49:4 - I will incline mine ear to a parable, I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
  2637. PSA.49:5 - Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
  2638. PSA.49:6 - They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
  2639. PSA.49:7 - None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him
  2640. PSA.49:8 - (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever )
  2641. PSA.49:9 - That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
  2642. PSA.49:10 - For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
  2643. PSA.49:11 - Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
  2644. PSA.49:12 - Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not, he is like the beasts that perish.
  2645. PSA.49:13 - This their way is their folly, yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
  2646. PSA.49:14 - Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
  2647. PSA.49:15 - But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave, for he shall receive me. Selah.
  2648. PSA.49:16 - Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
  2649. PSA.49:17 - For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away, his glory shall not descend after him.
  2650. PSA.49:18 - Though while he lived he blessed his soul, and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
  2651. PSA.49:19 - He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
  2652. PSA.49:20 - Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
  2653. PSA.50:1 - The mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
  2654. PSA.50:2 - Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
  2655. PSA.50:3 - Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence, a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
  2656. PSA.50:4 - He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
  2657. PSA.50:5 - Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
  2658. PSA.50:6 - And the heavens shall declare his righteousness, for God is judge himself. Selah.
  2659. PSA.50:7 - Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee, I am God, even thy God.
  2660. PSA.50:8 - I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
  2661. PSA.50:9 - I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
  2662. PSA.50:10 - For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
  2663. PSA.50:11 - I know all the fowls of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are mine.
  2664. PSA.50:12 - If I were hungry, I would not tell thee, for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
  2665. PSA.50:13 - Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
  2666. PSA.50:14 - Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High
  2667. PSA.50:15 - And call upon me in the day of trouble, I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
  2668. PSA.50:16 - But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
  2669. PSA.50:17 - Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
  2670. PSA.50:18 - When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
  2671. PSA.50:19 - Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
  2672. PSA.50:20 - Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
  2673. PSA.50:21 - These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself, but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
  2674. PSA.50:22 - Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
  2675. PSA.50:23 - Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me, and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.
  2676. PSA.51:1 - Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness, according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
  2677. PSA.51:2 - Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
  2678. PSA.51:3 - For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.
  2679. PSA.51:4 - Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight, that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
  2680. PSA.51:5 - Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
  2681. PSA.51:6 - Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts, and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
  2682. PSA.51:7 - Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean, wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
  2683. PSA.51:8 - Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
  2684. PSA.51:9 - Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
  2685. PSA.51:10 - Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
  2686. PSA.51:11 - Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
  2687. PSA.51:12 - Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
  2688. PSA.51:13 - Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
  2689. PSA.51:14 - Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation, and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
  2690. PSA.51:15 - O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
  2691. PSA.51:16 - For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it, thou delightest not in burnt offering.
  2692. PSA.51:17 - The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
  2693. PSA.51:18 - Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion, build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
  2694. PSA.51:19 - Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering, then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
  2695. PSA.52:1 - Why boastest thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.
  2696. PSA.52:2 - Thy tongue deviseth mischiefs; like a sharp rasor, working deceitfully.
  2697. PSA.52:3 - Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
  2698. PSA.52:4 - Thou lovest all devouring words, O thou deceitful tongue.
  2699. PSA.52:5 - God shall likewise destroy thee for ever, he shall take thee away, and pluck thee out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.
  2700. PSA.52:6 - The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him
  2701. PSA.52:7 - Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.
  2702. PSA.52:8 - But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God, I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
  2703. PSA.52:9 - I will praise thee for ever, because thou hast done it, and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before thy saints.
  2704. PSA.53:1 - The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity, there is none that doeth good.
  2705. PSA.53:2 - God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
  2706. PSA.53:3 - Every one of them is gone back, they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
  2707. PSA.53:4 - Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, they have not called upon God.
  2708. PSA.53:5 - There were they in great fear, where no fear was, for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee, thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.
  2709. PSA.53:6 - Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
  2710. PSA.54:1 - Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength.
  2711. PSA.54:2 - Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.
  2712. PSA.54:3 - For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul, they have not set God before them. Selah.
  2713. PSA.54:4 - Behold, God is mine helper, the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
  2714. PSA.54:5 - He shall reward evil unto mine enemies, cut them off in thy truth.
  2715. PSA.54:6 - I will freely sacrifice unto thee, I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good.
  2716. PSA.54:7 - For he hath delivered me out of all trouble, and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
  2717. PSA.55:1 - Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
  2718. PSA.55:2 - Attend unto me, and hear me, I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
  2719. PSA.55:3 - Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked, for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
  2720. PSA.55:4 - My heart is sore pained within me, and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
  2721. PSA.55:5 - Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
  2722. PSA.55:6 - And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
  2723. PSA.55:7 - Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.
  2724. PSA.55:8 - I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
  2725. PSA.55:9 - Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues, for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
  2726. PSA.55:10 - Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof, mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
  2727. PSA.55:11 - Wickedness is in the midst thereof, deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
  2728. PSA.55:12 - For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it, neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him
  2729. PSA.55:13 - But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
  2730. PSA.55:14 - We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
  2731. PSA.55:15 - Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell, for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
  2732. PSA.55:16 - As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
  2733. PSA.55:17 - Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud, and he shall hear my voice.
  2734. PSA.55:18 - He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, for there were many with me.
  2735. PSA.55:19 - God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
  2736. PSA.55:20 - He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him, he hath broken his covenant.
  2737. PSA.55:21 - The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart, his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
  2738. PSA.55:22 - Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee, he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
  2739. PSA.55:23 - But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction, bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.
  2740. PSA.56:1 - Be merciful unto me, O God, for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
  2741. PSA.56:2 - Mine enemies would daily swallow me up, for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.
  2742. PSA.56:3 - What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
  2743. PSA.56:4 - In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
  2744. PSA.56:5 - Every day they wrest my words, all their thoughts are against me for evil.
  2745. PSA.56:6 - They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
  2746. PSA.56:7 - Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.
  2747. PSA.56:8 - Thou tellest my wanderings, put thou my tears into thy bottle, are they not in thy book?
  2748. PSA.56:9 - When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back, this I know; for God is for me.
  2749. PSA.56:10 - In God will I praise his word, in the LORD will I praise his word.
  2750. PSA.56:11 - In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
  2751. PSA.56:12 - Thy vows are upon me, O God, I will render praises unto thee.
  2752. PSA.56:13 - For thou hast delivered my soul from death, wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
  2753. PSA.57:1 - Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me, for my soul trusteth in thee, yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
  2754. PSA.57:2 - I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
  2755. PSA.57:3 - He shall send from heaven, and save from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
  2756. PSA.57:4 - My soul is among lions, and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
  2757. PSA.57:5 - Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.
  2758. PSA.57:6 - They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down, they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.
  2759. PSA.57:7 - My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed, I will sing and give praise.
  2760. PSA.57:8 - Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp, I myself will awake early.
  2761. PSA.57:9 - I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people, I will sing unto thee among the nations.
  2762. PSA.57:10 - For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
  2763. PSA.57:11 - Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, let thy glory be above all the earth.
  2764. PSA.58:1 - Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
  2765. PSA.58:2 - Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.
  2766. PSA.58:3 - The wicked are estranged from the womb, they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.
  2767. PSA.58:4 - Their poison is like the poison of a serpent, they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;
  2768. PSA.58:5 - Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.
  2769. PSA.58:6 - Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth, break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.
  2770. PSA.58:7 - Let them melt away as waters which run continually, when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
  2771. PSA.58:8 - As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away, like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
  2772. PSA.58:9 - Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.
  2773. PSA.58:10 - The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance, he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
  2774. PSA.58:11 - So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous, verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
  2775. PSA.59:1 - Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God, defend me from them that rise up against me.
  2776. PSA.59:2 - Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
  2777. PSA.59:3 - For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul, the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
  2778. PSA.59:4 - They run and prepare themselves without my fault, awake to help me, and behold.
  2779. PSA.59:5 - Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen, be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
  2780. PSA.59:6 - They return at evening, they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
  2781. PSA.59:7 - Behold, they belch out with their mouth, swords are in their lips, for who, say they, doth hear?
  2782. PSA.59:8 - But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.
  2783. PSA.59:9 - Because of his strength will I wait upon thee, for God is my defence.
  2784. PSA.59:10 - The God of my mercy shall prevent me, God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
  2785. PSA.59:11 - Slay them not, lest my people forget, scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
  2786. PSA.59:12 - For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride, and for cursing and lying which they speak.
  2787. PSA.59:13 - Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be, and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
  2788. PSA.59:14 - And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.
  2789. PSA.59:15 - Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
  2790. PSA.59:16 - But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning, for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
  2791. PSA.59:17 - Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing, for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
  2792. PSA.60:1 - O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
  2793. PSA.60:2 - Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it, heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
  2794. PSA.60:3 - Thou hast shewed thy people hard things, thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
  2795. PSA.60:4 - Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
  2796. PSA.60:5 - That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
  2797. PSA.60:6 - God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
  2798. PSA.60:7 - Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
  2799. PSA.60:8 - Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe, Philistia, triumph thou because of me.
  2800. PSA.60:9 - Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
  2801. PSA.60:10 - Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?
  2802. PSA.60:11 - Give us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man.
  2803. PSA.60:12 - Through God we shall do valiantly, for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
  2804. PSA.61:1 - Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
  2805. PSA.61:2 - From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
  2806. PSA.61:3 - For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
  2807. PSA.61:4 - I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever, I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.
  2808. PSA.61:5 - For thou, O God, hast heard my vows, thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.
  2809. PSA.61:6 - Thou wilt prolong the king's life, and his years as many generations.
  2810. PSA.61:7 - He shall abide before God for ever, O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.
  2811. PSA.61:8 - So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
  2812. PSA.62:1 - Truly my soul waiteth upon God, from him cometh my salvation.
  2813. PSA.62:2 - He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.
  2814. PSA.62:3 - How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you, as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
  2815. PSA.62:4 - They only consult to cast him down from his excellency, they delight in lies, they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.
  2816. PSA.62:5 - My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
  2817. PSA.62:6 - He only is my rock and my salvation, he is my defence; I shall not be moved.
  2818. PSA.62:7 - In God is my salvation and my glory, the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
  2819. PSA.62:8 - Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him, God is a refuge for us. Selah.
  2820. PSA.62:9 - Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie, to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
  2821. PSA.62:10 - Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery, if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
  2822. PSA.62:11 - God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.
  2823. PSA.62:12 - Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy, for thou renderest to every man according to his work.
  2824. PSA.63:1 - O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee, my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
  2825. PSA.63:2 - To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
  2826. PSA.63:3 - Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
  2827. PSA.63:4 - Thus will I bless thee while I live, I will lift up my hands in thy name.
  2828. PSA.63:5 - My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips
  2829. PSA.63:6 - When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
  2830. PSA.63:7 - Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
  2831. PSA.63:8 - My soul followeth hard after thee, thy right hand upholdeth me.
  2832. PSA.63:9 - But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
  2833. PSA.63:10 - They shall fall by the sword, they shall be a portion for foxes.
  2834. PSA.63:11 - But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory, but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
  2835. PSA.64:1 - Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer, preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
  2836. PSA.64:2 - Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity
  2837. PSA.64:3 - Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words
  2838. PSA.64:4 - That they may shoot in secret at the perfect, suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
  2839. PSA.64:5 - They encourage themselves in an evil matter, they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?
  2840. PSA.64:6 - They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search, both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
  2841. PSA.64:7 - But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
  2842. PSA.64:8 - So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves, all that see them shall flee away.
  2843. PSA.64:9 - And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
  2844. PSA.64:10 - The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.
  2845. PSA.65:1 - Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion, and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
  2846. PSA.65:2 - O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come.
  2847. PSA.65:3 - Iniquities prevail against me, as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
  2848. PSA.65:4 - Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts, we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
  2849. PSA.65:5 - By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea
  2850. PSA.65:6 - Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power
  2851. PSA.65:7 - Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
  2852. PSA.65:8 - They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens, thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
  2853. PSA.65:9 - Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it, thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water, thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
  2854. PSA.65:10 - Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly, thou settlest the furrows thereof, thou makest it soft with showers, thou blessest the springing thereof.
  2855. PSA.65:11 - Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.
  2856. PSA.65:12 - They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness, and the little hills rejoice on every side.
  2857. PSA.65:13 - The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.
  2858. PSA.66:1 - Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands
  2859. PSA.66:2 - Sing forth the honour of his name, make his praise glorious.
  2860. PSA.66:3 - Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
  2861. PSA.66:4 - All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
  2862. PSA.66:5 - Come and see the works of God, he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
  2863. PSA.66:6 - He turned the sea into dry land, they went through the flood on foot, there did we rejoice in him.
  2864. PSA.66:7 - He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations, let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
  2865. PSA.66:8 - O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard
  2866. PSA.66:9 - Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
  2867. PSA.66:10 - For thou, O God, hast proved us, thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
  2868. PSA.66:11 - Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
  2869. PSA.66:12 - Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water, but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
  2870. PSA.66:13 - I will go into thy house with burnt offerings, I will pay thee my vows,
  2871. PSA.66:14 - Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
  2872. PSA.66:15 - I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
  2873. PSA.66:16 - Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
  2874. PSA.66:17 - I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
  2875. PSA.66:18 - If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me
  2876. PSA.66:19 - But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
  2877. PSA.66:20 - Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
  2878. PSA.67:1 - God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
  2879. PSA.67:2 - That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
  2880. PSA.67:3 - Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
  2881. PSA.67:4 - O let the nations be glad and sing for joy, for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
  2882. PSA.67:5 - Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
  2883. PSA.67:6 - Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
  2884. PSA.67:7 - God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
  2885. PSA.68:1 - Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered, let them also that hate him flee before him.
  2886. PSA.68:2 - As smoke is driven away, so drive them away, as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
  2887. PSA.68:3 - But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God, yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.
  2888. PSA.68:4 - Sing unto God, sing praises to his name, extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him.
  2889. PSA.68:5 - A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
  2890. PSA.68:6 - God setteth the solitary in families, he bringeth out those which are bound with chains, but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
  2891. PSA.68:7 - O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness; Selah
  2892. PSA.68:8 - The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God, even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
  2893. PSA.68:9 - Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary.
  2894. PSA.68:10 - Thy congregation hath dwelt therein, thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.
  2895. PSA.68:11 - The Lord gave the word, great was the company of those that published it.
  2896. PSA.68:12 - Kings of armies did flee apace, and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.
  2897. PSA.68:13 - Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.
  2898. PSA.68:14 - When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.
  2899. PSA.68:15 - The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.
  2900. PSA.68:16 - Why leap ye, ye high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, the LORD will dwell in it for ever.
  2901. PSA.68:17 - The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels, the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
  2902. PSA.68:18 - Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive, thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the LORD God might dwell among them.
  2903. PSA.68:19 - Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
  2904. PSA.68:20 - He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death.
  2905. PSA.68:21 - But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses.
  2906. PSA.68:22 - The Lord said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring my people again from the depths of the sea
  2907. PSA.68:23 - That thy foot may be dipped in the blood of thine enemies, and the tongue of thy dogs in the same.

  2913. PSA.68:29 - Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.
  2914. PSA.68:30 - Rebuke the company of spearmen, the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver, scatter thou the people that delight in war.
  2915. PSA.68:31 - Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.
  2916. PSA.68:32 - Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah
  2917. PSA.68:33 - To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice.
  2918. PSA.68:34 - Ascribe ye strength unto God, his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds.
  2919. PSA.68:35 - O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places, the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God.
  2920. PSA.69:1 - Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
  2921. PSA.69:2 - I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing, I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.
  2922. PSA.69:3 - I am weary of my crying, my throat is dried, mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.
  2923. PSA.69:4 - They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head, they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty, then I restored that which I took not away.
  2924. PSA.69:5 - O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
  2925. PSA.69:6 - Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord GOD of hosts, be ashamed for my sake, let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
  2926. PSA.69:7 - Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
  2927. PSA.69:8 - I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.
  2928. PSA.69:9 - For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
  2929. PSA.69:10 - When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
  2930. PSA.69:11 - I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.
  2931. PSA.69:12 - They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.
  2932. PSA.69:13 - But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time, O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
  2933. PSA.69:14 - Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink, let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.
  2934. PSA.69:15 - Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.
  2935. PSA.69:16 - Hear me, O LORD; for thy lovingkindness is good, turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies.
  2936. PSA.69:17 - And hide not thy face from thy servant; for I am in trouble, hear me speedily.
  2937. PSA.69:18 - Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it, deliver me because of mine enemies.
  2938. PSA.69:19 - Thou hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour, mine adversaries are all before thee.
  2939. PSA.69:20 - Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness, and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
  2940. PSA.69:21 - They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
  2941. PSA.69:22 - Let their table become a snare before them, and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
  2942. PSA.69:23 - Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.
  2943. PSA.69:24 - Pour out thine indignation upon them, and let thy wrathful anger take hold of them.
  2944. PSA.69:25 - Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.
  2945. PSA.69:26 - For they persecute him whom thou hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom thou hast wounded.
  2946. PSA.69:27 - Add iniquity unto their iniquity, and let them not come into thy righteousness.
  2947. PSA.69:28 - Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
  2948. PSA.69:29 - But I am poor and sorrowful, let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
  2949. PSA.69:30 - I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
  2950. PSA.69:31 - This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
  2951. PSA.69:32 - The humble shall see this, and be glad, and your heart shall live that seek God.
  2952. PSA.69:33 - For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
  2953. PSA.69:34 - Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and everything that moveth therein.
  2954. PSA.69:35 - For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah, that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
  2955. PSA.69:36 - The seed also of his servants shall inherit it, and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
  2956. PSA.70:1 - Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O LORD.
  2957. PSA.70:2 - Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul, let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
  2958. PSA.70:3 - Let them be turned back for a reward of their shame that say, Aha, aha.
  2959. PSA.70:4 - Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee, and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
  2960. PSA.70:5 - But I am poor and needy, make haste unto me, O God, thou art my help and my deliverer; O LORD, make no tarrying.
  2961. PSA.71:1 - In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust, let me never be put to confusion.
  2962. PSA.71:2 - Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape, incline thine ear unto me, and save me.
  2963. PSA.71:3 - Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort, thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
  2964. PSA.71:4 - Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
  2965. PSA.71:5 - For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD, thou art my trust from my youth.
  2966. PSA.71:6 - By thee have I been holden up from the womb, thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels, my praise shall be continually of thee.
  2967. PSA.71:7 - I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
  2968. PSA.71:8 - Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
  2969. PSA.71:9 - Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.
  2970. PSA.71:10 - For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
  2971. PSA.71:11 - Saying, God hath forsaken him, persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
  2972. PSA.71:12 - O God, be not far from me, O my God, make haste for my help.
  2973. PSA.71:13 - Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
  2974. PSA.71:14 - But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
  2975. PSA.71:15 - My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.
  2976. PSA.71:16 - I will go in the strength of the Lord GOD, I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.
  2977. PSA.71:17 - O God, thou hast taught me from my youth, and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.
  2978. PSA.71:18 - Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.
  2979. PSA.71:19 - Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things, O God, who is like unto thee!
  2980. PSA.71:20 - Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.
  2981. PSA.71:21 - Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.
  2982. PSA.71:22 - I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God, unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
  2983. PSA.71:23 - My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
  2984. PSA.71:24 - My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long, for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.
  2985. PSA.72:1 - Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king's son.
  2986. PSA.72:2 - He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
  2987. PSA.72:3 - The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
  2988. PSA.72:4 - He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
  2989. PSA.72:5 - They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
  2990. PSA.72:6 - He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass, as showers that water the earth.
  2991. PSA.72:7 - In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.
  2992. PSA.72:8 - He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
  2993. PSA.72:9 - They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
  2994. PSA.72:10 - The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents, the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
  2995. PSA.72:11 - Yea, all kings shall fall down before him, all nations shall serve him.
  2996. PSA.72:12 - For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.
  2997. PSA.72:13 - He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
  2998. PSA.72:14 - He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence, and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
  2999. PSA.72:15 - And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba, prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
  3000. PSA.72:16 - There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon, and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
  3001. PSA.72:17 - His name shall endure for ever, his name shall be continued as long as the sun, and men shall be blessed in him, all nations shall call him blessed.
  3002. PSA.72:18 - Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.
  3003. PSA.72:19 - And blessed be his glorious name for ever, and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
  3004. PSA.72:20 - The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
  3005. PSA.73:1 - Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
  3006. PSA.73:2 - But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
  3007. PSA.73:3 - For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
  3008. PSA.73:4 - For there are no bands in their death, but their strength is firm.
  3009. PSA.73:5 - They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
  3010. PSA.73:6 - Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
  3011. PSA.73:7 - Their eyes stand out with fatness, they have more than heart could wish.
  3012. PSA.73:8 - They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression, they speak loftily.
  3013. PSA.73:9 - They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
  3014. PSA.73:10 - Therefore his people return hither, and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
  3015. PSA.73:11 - And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
  3016. PSA.73:12 - Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
  3017. PSA.73:13 - Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
  3018. PSA.73:14 - For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
  3019. PSA.73:15 - If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
  3020. PSA.73:16 - When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
  3021. PSA.73:17 - Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
  3022. PSA.73:18 - Surely thou didst set them in slippery places, thou castedst them down into destruction.
  3023. PSA.73:19 - How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
  3024. PSA.73:20 - As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
  3025. PSA.73:21 - Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
  3026. PSA.73:22 - So foolish was I, and ignorant, I was as a beast before thee.
  3027. PSA.73:23 - Nevertheless I am continually with thee, thou hast holden me by my right hand.
  3028. PSA.73:24 - Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
  3029. PSA.73:25 - Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
  3030. PSA.73:26 - My flesh and my heart faileth, but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
  3031. PSA.73:27 - For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish, thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
  3032. PSA.73:28 - But it is good for me to draw near to God, I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
  3033. PSA.74:1 - O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture?
  3034. PSA.74:2 - Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.
  3035. PSA.74:3 - Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
  3036. PSA.74:4 - Thine enemies roar in the midst of thy congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.
  3037. PSA.74:5 - A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.
  3038. PSA.74:6 - But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.
  3039. PSA.74:7 - They have cast fire into thy sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground.
  3040. PSA.74:8 - They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together, they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.
  3041. PSA.74:9 - We see not our signs, there is no more any prophet, neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
  3042. PSA.74:10 - O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever?
  3043. PSA.74:11 - Why withdrawest thou thy hand, even thy right hand? pluck it out of thy bosom.
  3044. PSA.74:12 - For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
  3045. PSA.74:13 - Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength, thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
  3046. PSA.74:14 - Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
  3047. PSA.74:15 - Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood, thou driedst up mighty rivers.
  3048. PSA.74:16 - The day is thine, the night also is thine, thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
  3049. PSA.74:17 - Thou hast set all the borders of the earth, thou hast made summer and winter.
  3050. PSA.74:18 - Remember this, that the enemy hath reproached, O LORD, and that the foolish people have blasphemed thy name.
  3051. PSA.74:19 - O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked, forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
  3052. PSA.74:20 - Have respect unto the covenant, for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
  3053. PSA.74:21 - O let not the oppressed return ashamed, let the poor and needy praise thy name.
  3054. PSA.74:22 - Arise, O God, plead thine own cause, remember how the foolish man reproacheth thee daily.
  3055. PSA.74:23 - Forget not the voice of thine enemies, the tumult of those that rise up against thee increaseth continually.
  3056. PSA.75:1 - Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks, for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
  3057. PSA.75:2 - When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.
  3058. PSA.75:3 - The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved, I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.
  3059. PSA.75:4 - I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly, and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn
  3060. PSA.75:5 - Lift not up your horn on high, speak not with a stiff neck.
  3061. PSA.75:6 - For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
  3062. PSA.75:7 - But God is the judge, he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
  3063. PSA.75:8 - For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same, but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.
  3064. PSA.75:9 - But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
  3065. PSA.75:10 - All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.
  3066. PSA.76:1 - In Judah is God known, his name is great in Israel.
  3067. PSA.76:2 - In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.
  3068. PSA.76:3 - There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.
  3069. PSA.76:4 - Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.
  3070. PSA.76:5 - The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep, and none of the men of might have found their hands.
  3071. PSA.76:6 - At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.
  3072. PSA.76:7 - Thou, even thou, art to be feared, and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?
  3073. PSA.76:8 - Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
  3074. PSA.76:9 - When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
  3075. PSA.76:10 - Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee, the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.
  3076. PSA.76:11 - Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God, let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
  3077. PSA.76:12 - He shall cut off the spirit of princes, he is terrible to the kings of the earth.
  3078. PSA.77:1 - I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me.
  3079. PSA.77:2 - In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord, my sore ran in the night, and ceased not, my soul refused to be comforted.
  3080. PSA.77:3 - I remembered God, and was troubled, I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.
  3081. PSA.77:4 - Thou holdest mine eyes waking, I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
  3082. PSA.77:5 - I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times.
  3083. PSA.77:6 - I call to remembrance my song in the night, I commune with mine own heart, and my spirit made diligent search.
  3084. PSA.77:7 - Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more?
  3085. PSA.77:8 - Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore?
  3086. PSA.77:9 - Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah.
  3087. PSA.77:10 - And I said, This is my infirmity, but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High.
  3088. PSA.77:11 - I will remember the works of the LORD, surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
  3089. PSA.77:12 - I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
  3090. PSA.77:13 - Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary, who is so great a God as our God?
  3091. PSA.77:14 - Thou art the God that doest wonders, thou hast declared thy strength among the people.
  3092. PSA.77:15 - Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
  3093. PSA.77:16 - The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid, the depths also were troubled.
  3094. PSA.77:17 - The clouds poured out water, the skies sent out a sound, thine arrows also went abroad.
  3095. PSA.77:18 - The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven, the lightnings lightened the world, the earth trembled and shook.
  3096. PSA.77:19 - Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.
  3097. PSA.77:20 - Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
  3098. PSA.78:1 - Give ear, O my people, to my law, incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
  3099. PSA.78:2 - I will open my mouth in a parable, I will utter dark sayings of old
  3100. PSA.78:3 - Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
  3101. PSA.78:4 - We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
  3102. PSA.78:5 - For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children
  3103. PSA.78:6 - That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children
  3104. PSA.78:7 - That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments
  3105. PSA.78:8 - And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
  3106. PSA.78:9 - The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
  3107. PSA.78:10 - They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
  3108. PSA.78:11 - And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
  3109. PSA.78:12 - Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
  3110. PSA.78:13 - He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
  3111. PSA.78:14 - In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
  3112. PSA.78:15 - He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.
  3113. PSA.78:16 - He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
  3114. PSA.78:17 - And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
  3115. PSA.78:18 - And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
  3116. PSA.78:19 - Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
  3117. PSA.78:20 - Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
  3118. PSA.78:21 - Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth, so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
  3119. PSA.78:22 - Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation
  3120. PSA.78:23 - Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
  3121. PSA.78:24 - And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
  3122. PSA.78:25 - Man did eat angels' food, he sent them meat to the full.
  3123. PSA.78:26 - He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven, and by his power he brought in the south wind.
  3124. PSA.78:27 - He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea
  3125. PSA.78:28 - And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
  3126. PSA.78:29 - So they did eat, and were well filled, for he gave them their own desire;
  3127. PSA.78:30 - They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
  3128. PSA.78:31 - The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
  3129. PSA.78:32 - For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
  3130. PSA.78:33 - Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
  3131. PSA.78:34 - When he slew them, then they sought him, and they returned and inquired early after God.
  3132. PSA.78:35 - And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
  3133. PSA.78:36 - Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
  3134. PSA.78:37 - For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
  3135. PSA.78:38 - But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not, yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
  3136. PSA.78:39 - For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
  3137. PSA.78:40 - How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!
  3138. PSA.78:41 - Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
  3139. PSA.78:42 - They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.
  3140. PSA.78:43 - How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan
  3141. PSA.78:44 - And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
  3142. PSA.78:45 - He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
  3143. PSA.78:46 - He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.
  3144. PSA.78:47 - He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
  3145. PSA.78:48 - He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
  3146. PSA.78:49 - He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
  3147. PSA.78:50 - He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
  3148. PSA.78:51 - And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham
  3149. PSA.78:52 - But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
  3150. PSA.78:53 - And he led them on safely, so that they feared not, but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
  3151. PSA.78:54 - And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased.
  3152. PSA.78:55 - He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.
  3153. PSA.78:56 - Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies
  3154. PSA.78:57 - But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers, they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
  3155. PSA.78:58 - For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
  3156. PSA.78:59 - When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel
  3157. PSA.78:60 - So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;
  3158. PSA.78:61 - And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.
  3159. PSA.78:62 - He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
  3160. PSA.78:63 - The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
  3161. PSA.78:64 - Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
  3162. PSA.78:65 - Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
  3163. PSA.78:66 - And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts, he put them to a perpetual reproach.
  3164. PSA.78:67 - Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim
  3165. PSA.78:68 - But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
  3166. PSA.78:69 - And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever.
  3167. PSA.78:70 - He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds
  3168. PSA.78:71 - From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
  3169. PSA.78:72 - So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.
  3170. PSA.79:1 - O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
  3171. PSA.79:2 - The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth.
  3172. PSA.79:3 - Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.
  3173. PSA.79:4 - We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
  3174. PSA.79:5 - How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
  3175. PSA.79:6 - Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
  3176. PSA.79:7 - For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.
  3177. PSA.79:8 - O remember not against us former iniquities, let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us, for we are brought very low.
  3178. PSA.79:9 - Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name, and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.
  3179. PSA.79:10 - Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight by the revenging of the blood of thy servants which is shed.
  3180. PSA.79:11 - Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;
  3181. PSA.79:12 - And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
  3182. PSA.79:13 - So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever, we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
  3183. PSA.80:1 - Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.
  3184. PSA.80:2 - Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.
  3185. PSA.80:3 - Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
  3186. PSA.80:4 - O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
  3187. PSA.80:5 - Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
  3188. PSA.80:6 - Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours, and our enemies laugh among themselves.
  3189. PSA.80:7 - Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
  3190. PSA.80:8 - Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt, thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
  3191. PSA.80:9 - Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
  3192. PSA.80:10 - The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
  3193. PSA.80:11 - She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
  3194. PSA.80:12 - Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
  3195. PSA.80:13 - The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
  3196. PSA.80:14 - Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts, look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
  3197. PSA.80:15 - And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.
  3198. PSA.80:16 - It is burned with fire, it is cut down, they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
  3199. PSA.80:17 - Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.
  3200. PSA.80:18 - So will not we go back from thee, quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
  3201. PSA.80:19 - Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
  3202. PSA.81:1 - Sing aloud unto God our strength, make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
  3203. PSA.81:2 - Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
  3204. PSA.81:3 - Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
  3205. PSA.81:4 - For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.
  3206. PSA.81:5 - This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt, where I heard a language that I understood not.
  3207. PSA.81:6 - I removed his shoulder from the burden, his hands were delivered from the pots.
  3208. PSA.81:7 - Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder, I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
  3209. PSA.81:8 - Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee, O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
  3210. PSA.81:9 - There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
  3211. PSA.81:10 - I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
  3212. PSA.81:11 - But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
  3213. PSA.81:12 - So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust, and they walked in their own counsels.
  3214. PSA.81:13 - Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways!
  3215. PSA.81:14 - I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
  3216. PSA.81:15 - The haters of the LORD should have submitted themselves unto him, but their time should have endured for ever.
  3217. PSA.81:16 - He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat, and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.
  3218. PSA.82:1 - God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
  3219. PSA.82:2 - How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
  3220. PSA.82:3 - Defend the poor and fatherless, do justice to the afflicted and needy.
  3221. PSA.82:4 - Deliver the poor and needy, rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
  3222. PSA.82:5 - They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness, all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
  3223. PSA.82:6 - I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
  3224. PSA.82:7 - But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
  3225. PSA.82:8 - Arise, O God, judge the earth, for thou shalt inherit all nations.
  3226. PSA.83:1 - Keep not thou silence, O God, hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
  3227. PSA.83:2 - For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult, and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
  3228. PSA.83:3 - They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
  3229. PSA.83:4 - They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
  3230. PSA.83:5 - For they have consulted together with one consent, they are confederate against thee
  3231. PSA.83:6 - The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
  3232. PSA.83:7 - Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
  3233. PSA.83:8 - Assur also is joined with them, they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
  3234. PSA.83:9 - Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison
  3235. PSA.83:10 - Which perished at Endor, they became as dung for the earth.
  3236. PSA.83:11 - Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb, yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna
  3237. PSA.83:12 - Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.
  3238. PSA.83:13 - O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind.
  3239. PSA.83:14 - As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;
  3240. PSA.83:15 - So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm.
  3241. PSA.83:16 - Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
  3242. PSA.83:17 - Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish
  3243. PSA.83:18 - That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
  3244. PSA.84:1 - How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!
  3245. PSA.84:2 - My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD, my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
  3246. PSA.84:3 - Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
  3247. PSA.84:4 - Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, they will be still praising thee. Selah.
  3248. PSA.84:5 - Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
  3249. PSA.84:6 - Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
  3250. PSA.84:7 - They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.
  3251. PSA.84:8 - O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer, give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.
  3252. PSA.84:9 - Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed.
  3253. PSA.84:10 - For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
  3254. PSA.84:11 - For the LORD God is a sun and shield, the LORD will give grace and glory, no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
  3255. PSA.84:12 - O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
  3256. PSA.85:1 - LORD, thou hast been favourable unto thy land, thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
  3257. PSA.85:2 - Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
  3258. PSA.85:3 - Thou hast taken away all thy wrath, thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
  3259. PSA.85:4 - Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
  3260. PSA.85:5 - Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
  3261. PSA.85:6 - Wilt thou not revive us again, that thy people may rejoice in thee?
  3262. PSA.85:7 - Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.
  3263. PSA.85:8 - I will hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, but let them not turn again to folly.
  3264. PSA.85:9 - Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
  3265. PSA.85:10 - Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
  3266. PSA.85:11 - Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
  3267. PSA.85:12 - Yea, the LORD shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
  3268. PSA.85:13 - Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
  3269. PSA.86:1 - Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me, for I am poor and needy.
  3270. PSA.86:2 - Preserve my soul; for I am holy, O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
  3271. PSA.86:3 - Be merciful unto me, O Lord, for I cry unto thee daily.
  3272. PSA.86:4 - Rejoice the soul of thy servant, for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
  3273. PSA.86:5 - For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
  3274. PSA.86:6 - Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.
  3275. PSA.86:7 - In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee, for thou wilt answer me.
  3276. PSA.86:8 - Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
  3277. PSA.86:9 - All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O Lord; and shall glorify thy name.
  3278. PSA.86:10 - For thou art great, and doest wondrous things, thou art God alone.
  3279. PSA.86:11 - Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth, unite my heart to fear thy name.
  3280. PSA.86:12 - I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify thy name for evermore.
  3281. PSA.86:13 - For great is thy mercy toward me, and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
  3282. PSA.86:14 - O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.
  3283. PSA.86:15 - But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
  3284. PSA.86:16 - O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.
  3285. PSA.86:17 - Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed, because thou, LORD, hast holpen me, and comforted me.
  3286. PSA.87:1 - His foundation is in the holy mountains.
  3287. PSA.87:2 - The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
  3288. PSA.87:3 - Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.
  3289. PSA.87:4 - I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me, behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.
  3290. PSA.87:5 - And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her, and the highest himself shall establish her.
  3291. PSA.87:6 - The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.
  3292. PSA.87:7 - As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there, all my springs are in thee.
  3293. PSA.88:1 - O LORD God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before thee
  3294. PSA.88:2 - Let my prayer come before thee, incline thine ear unto my cry;
  3295. PSA.88:3 - For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
  3296. PSA.88:4 - I am counted with them that go down into the pit, I am as a man that hath no strength
  3297. PSA.88:5 - Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom thou rememberest no more, and they are cut off from thy hand.
  3298. PSA.88:6 - Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.
  3299. PSA.88:7 - Thy wrath lieth hard upon me, and thou hast afflicted me with all thy waves. Selah.
  3300. PSA.88:8 - Thou hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; thou hast made me an abomination unto them, I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.
  3301. PSA.88:9 - Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction, LORD, I have called daily upon thee, I have stretched out my hands unto thee.
  3302. PSA.88:10 - Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah.
  3303. PSA.88:11 - Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?
  3304. PSA.88:12 - Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
  3305. PSA.88:13 - But unto thee have I cried, O LORD; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent thee.
  3306. PSA.88:14 - LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?
  3307. PSA.88:15 - I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up, while I suffer thy terrors I am distracted.
  3308. PSA.88:16 - Thy fierce wrath goeth over me; thy terrors have cut me off.
  3309. PSA.88:17 - They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.
  3310. PSA.88:18 - Lover and friend hast thou put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.
  3311. PSA.89:1 - I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever, with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
  3312. PSA.89:2 - For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever, thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens.
  3313. PSA.89:3 - I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
  3314. PSA.89:4 - Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
  3315. PSA.89:5 - And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD, thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
  3316. PSA.89:6 - For who in the heaven can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the LORD?
  3317. PSA.89:7 - God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
  3318. PSA.89:8 - O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
  3319. PSA.89:9 - Thou rulest the raging of the sea, when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
  3320. PSA.89:10 - Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.
  3321. PSA.89:11 - The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine, as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
  3322. PSA.89:12 - The north and the south thou hast created them, Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
  3323. PSA.89:13 - Thou hast a mighty arm, strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
  3324. PSA.89:14 - Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne, mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
  3325. PSA.89:15 - Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound, they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
  3326. PSA.89:16 - In thy name shall they rejoice all the day, and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
  3327. PSA.89:17 - For thou art the glory of their strength, and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
  3328. PSA.89:18 - For the LORD is our defence; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.
  3329. PSA.89:19 - Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
  3330. PSA.89:20 - I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him
  3331. PSA.89:21 - With whom my hand shall be established, mine arm also shall strengthen him.
  3332. PSA.89:22 - The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
  3333. PSA.89:23 - And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.
  3334. PSA.89:24 - But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him, and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
  3335. PSA.89:25 - I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
  3336. PSA.89:26 - He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
  3337. PSA.89:27 - Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
  3338. PSA.89:28 - My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
  3339. PSA.89:29 - His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
  3340. PSA.89:30 - If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
  3341. PSA.89:31 - If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
  3342. PSA.89:32 - Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
  3343. PSA.89:33 - Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.

  3348. PSA.89:38 - But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
  3349. PSA.89:39 - Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant, thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
  3350. PSA.89:40 - Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
  3351. PSA.89:41 - All that pass by the way spoil him, he is a reproach to his neighbours.
  3352. PSA.89:42 - Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
  3353. PSA.89:43 - Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.
  3354. PSA.89:44 - Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.
  3355. PSA.89:45 - The days of his youth hast thou shortened, thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.
  3356. PSA.89:46 - How long, LORD? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?
  3357. PSA.89:47 - Remember how short my time is, wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?
  3358. PSA.89:48 - What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
  3359. PSA.89:49 - Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, which thou swarest unto David in thy truth?
  3360. PSA.89:50 - Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people;
  3361. PSA.89:51 - Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
  3362. PSA.89:52 - Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
  3363. PSA.90:1 - LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
  3364. PSA.90:2 - Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.
  3365. PSA.90:3 - Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.
  3366. PSA.90:4 - For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
  3367. PSA.90:5 - Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep, in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.
  3368. PSA.90:6 - In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.
  3369. PSA.90:7 - For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
  3370. PSA.90:8 - Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
  3371. PSA.90:9 - For all our days are passed away in thy wrath, we spend our years as a tale that is told.
  3372. PSA.90:10 - The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
  3373. PSA.90:11 - Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
  3374. PSA.90:12 - So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

  3380. PSA.91:1 - He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
  3381. PSA.91:2 - I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God; in him will I trust.
  3382. PSA.91:3 - Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
  3383. PSA.91:4 - He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust, his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
  3384. PSA.91:5 - Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
  3385. PSA.91:6 - Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
  3386. PSA.91:7 - A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

  3388. PSA.91:9 - Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
  3389. PSA.91:10 - There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
  3390. PSA.91:11 - For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
  3391. PSA.91:12 - They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
  3392. PSA.91:13 - Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder, the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
  3393. PSA.91:14 - Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him, I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
  3394. PSA.91:15 - He shall call upon me, and I will answer him, I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
  3395. PSA.91:16 - With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
  3396. PSA.92:1 - It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High
  3397. PSA.92:2 - To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
  3398. PSA.92:3 - Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
  3399. PSA.92:4 - For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work, I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
  3400. PSA.92:5 - O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
  3401. PSA.92:6 - A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
  3402. PSA.92:7 - When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever
  3403. PSA.92:8 - But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
  3404. PSA.92:9 - For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
  3405. PSA.92:10 - But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn, I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
  3406. PSA.92:11 - Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
  3407. PSA.92:12 - The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
  3408. PSA.92:13 - Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
  3409. PSA.92:14 - They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
  3410. PSA.92:15 - To shew that the LORD is upright, he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
  3411. PSA.93:1 - The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself, the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
  3412. PSA.93:2 - Thy throne is established of old, thou art from everlasting.

  3418. PSA.94:3 - LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
  3419. PSA.94:4 - How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
  3420. PSA.94:5 - They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.
  3421. PSA.94:6 - They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
  3422. PSA.94:7 - Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
  3423. PSA.94:8 - Understand, ye brutish among the people, and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
  3424. PSA.94:9 - He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
  3425. PSA.94:10 - He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
  3426. PSA.94:11 - The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
  3427. PSA.94:12 - Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;
  3428. PSA.94:13 - That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
  3429. PSA.94:14 - For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
  3430. PSA.94:15 - But judgment shall return unto righteousness, and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
  3431. PSA.94:16 - Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
  3432. PSA.94:17 - Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
  3433. PSA.94:18 - When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
  3434. PSA.94:19 - In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
  3435. PSA.94:20 - Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
  3436. PSA.94:21 - They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
  3437. PSA.94:22 - But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
  3438. PSA.94:23 - And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.
  3439. PSA.95:1 - O come, let us sing unto the LORD, let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
  3440. PSA.95:2 - Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
  3441. PSA.95:3 - For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
  3442. PSA.95:4 - In his hand are the deep places of the earth, the strength of the hills is his also.
  3443. PSA.95:5 - The sea is his, and he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
  3444. PSA.95:6 - O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
  3445. PSA.95:7 - For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
  3446. PSA.95:8 - Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness
  3447. PSA.95:9 - When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
  3448. PSA.95:10 - Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways
  3449. PSA.95:11 - Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
  3450. PSA.96:1 - O sing unto the LORD a new song, sing unto the LORD, all the earth.
  3451. PSA.96:2 - Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day.

  3453. PSA.96:4 - For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised, he is to be feared above all gods.
  3454. PSA.96:5 - For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens.
  3455. PSA.96:6 - Honour and majesty are before him, strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
  3456. PSA.96:7 - Give unto the LORD, O ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
  3457. PSA.96:8 - Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name, bring an offering, and come into his courts.
  3458. PSA.96:9 - O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness, fear before him, all the earth.
  3459. PSA.96:10 - Say among the heathen that the LORD reigneth, the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved, he shall judge the people righteously.
  3460. PSA.96:11 - Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
  3461. PSA.96:12 - Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein, then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
  3462. PSA.96:13 - Before the LORD, for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth, he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
  3463. PSA.97:1 - The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
  3464. PSA.97:2 - Clouds and darkness are round about him, righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
  3465. PSA.97:3 - A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
  3466. PSA.97:4 - His lightnings enlightened the world, the earth saw, and trembled.
  3467. PSA.97:5 - The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

  3470. PSA.97:8 - Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.
  3471. PSA.97:9 - For thou, LORD, art high above all the earth, thou art exalted far above all gods.
  3472. PSA.97:10 - Ye that love the LORD, hate evil, he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
  3473. PSA.97:11 - Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
  3474. PSA.97:12 - Rejoice in the LORD, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

  3488. PSA.99:5 - Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
  3489. PSA.99:6 - Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.
  3490. PSA.99:7 - He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar, they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

  3497. PSA.100:5 - For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
  3498. PSA.11:1 - I will sing of mercy and judgment, unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.
  3499. PSA.11:2 - I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
  3500. PSA.11:3 - I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes, I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
  3501. PSA.11:4 - A froward heart shall depart from me, I will not know a wicked person.
  3502. PSA.11:5 - Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off, him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

  3504. PSA.11:7 - He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house, he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
  3505. PSA.11:8 - I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.
  3506. PSA.12:1 - Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.
  3507. PSA.12:2 - Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me, in the day when I call answer me speedily.
  3508. PSA.12:3 - For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
  3509. PSA.12:4 - My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
  3510. PSA.12:5 - By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
  3511. PSA.12:6 - I am like a pelican of the wilderness, I am like an owl of the desert.
  3512. PSA.12:7 - I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
  3513. PSA.12:8 - Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
  3514. PSA.12:9 - For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,
  3515. PSA.12:10 - Because of thine indignation and thy wrath, for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
  3516. PSA.12:11 - My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
  3517. PSA.12:12 - But thou, O LORD, shalt endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
  3518. PSA.12:13 - Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion, for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
  3519. PSA.12:14 - For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
  3520. PSA.12:15 - So the heathen shall fear the name of the LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
  3521. PSA.12:16 - When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
  3522. PSA.12:17 - He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
  3523. PSA.12:18 - This shall be written for the generation to come, and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
  3524. PSA.12:19 - For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
  3525. PSA.12:20 - To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
  3526. PSA.12:21 - To declare the name of the LORD in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
  3527. PSA.12:22 - When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.
  3528. PSA.12:23 - He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
  3529. PSA.12:24 - I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days, thy years are throughout all generations.
  3530. PSA.12:25 - Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
  3531. PSA.12:26 - They shall perish, but thou shalt endure, yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed
  3532. PSA.12:27 - But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
  3533. PSA.12:28 - The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
  3534. PSA.13:1 - Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
  3535. PSA.13:2 - Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits
  3536. PSA.13:3 - Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
  3537. PSA.13:4 - Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
  3538. PSA.13:5 - Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
  3539. PSA.13:6 - The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
  3540. PSA.13:7 - He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
  3541. PSA.13:8 - The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
  3542. PSA.13:9 - He will not always chide, neither will he keep his anger for ever.
  3543. PSA.13:10 - He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
  3544. PSA.13:11 - For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
  3545. PSA.13:12 - As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
  3546. PSA.13:13 - Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
  3547. PSA.13:14 - For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
  3548. PSA.13:15 - As for man, his days are as grass, as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
  3549. PSA.13:16 - For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
  3550. PSA.13:17 - But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
  3551. PSA.13:18 - To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
  3552. PSA.13:19 - The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
  3553. PSA.13:20 - Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
  3554. PSA.13:21 - Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
  3555. PSA.13:22 - Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion, bless the LORD, O my soul.
  3556. PSA.14:1 - Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
  3557. PSA.14:2 - Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment, who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain

  3669. PSA.16:34 - They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them
  3670. PSA.16:35 - But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
  3671. PSA.16:36 - And they served their idols, which were a snare unto them.
  3672. PSA.16:37 - Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
  3673. PSA.16:38 - And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood.

  3679. PSA.16:44 - Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry
  3680. PSA.16:45 - And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
  3681. PSA.16:46 - He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
  3682. PSA.16:47 - Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.
  3683. PSA.16:48 - Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting, and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.
  3684. PSA.17:1 - O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever.
  3685. PSA.17:2 - Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
  3686. PSA.17:3 - And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
  3687. PSA.17:4 - They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
  3688. PSA.17:5 - Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
  3689. PSA.17:6 - Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.
  3690. PSA.17:7 - And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
  3691. PSA.17:8 - Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
  3692. PSA.17:9 - For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
  3693. PSA.17:10 - Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
  3694. PSA.17:11 - Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High
  3695. PSA.17:12 - Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.
  3696. PSA.17:13 - Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
  3697. PSA.17:14 - He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.
  3698. PSA.17:15 - Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
  3699. PSA.17:16 - For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
  3700. PSA.17:17 - Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
  3701. PSA.17:18 - Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
  3702. PSA.17:19 - Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
  3703. PSA.17:20 - He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
  3704. PSA.17:21 - Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
  3705. PSA.17:22 - And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.
  3706. PSA.17:23 - They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
  3707. PSA.17:24 - These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.
  3708. PSA.17:25 - For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
  3709. PSA.17:26 - They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths, their soul is melted because of trouble.
  3710. PSA.17:27 - They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
  3711. PSA.17:28 - Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
  3712. PSA.17:29 - He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
  3713. PSA.17:30 - Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
  3714. PSA.17:31 - Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
  3715. PSA.17:32 - Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
  3716. PSA.17:33 - He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
  3717. PSA.17:34 - A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
  3718. PSA.17:35 - He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
  3719. PSA.17:36 - And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
  3720. PSA.17:37 - And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
  3721. PSA.17:38 - He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
  3722. PSA.17:39 - Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
  3723. PSA.17:40 - He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
  3724. PSA.17:41 - Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
  3725. PSA.17:42 - The righteous shall see it, and rejoice, and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
  3726. PSA.17:43 - Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.
  3727. PSA.18:1 - O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.
  3728. PSA.18:2 - Awake, psaltery and harp, I myself will awake early.
  3729. PSA.18:3 - I will praise thee, O LORD, among the people, and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
  3730. PSA.18:4 - For thy mercy is great above the heavens, and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
  3731. PSA.18:5 - Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory above all the earth;
  3732. PSA.18:6 - That thy beloved may be delivered, save with thy right hand, and answer me.
  3733. PSA.18:7 - God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
  3734. PSA.18:8 - Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
  3735. PSA.18:9 - Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.
  3736. PSA.18:10 - Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?
  3737. PSA.18:11 - Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?
  3738. PSA.18:12 - Give us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man.
  3739. PSA.18:13 - Through God we shall do valiantly, for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
  3740. PSA.19:1 - Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;
  3741. PSA.19:2 - For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me, they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
  3742. PSA.19:3 - They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.
  3743. PSA.19:4 - For my love they are my adversaries, but I give myself unto prayer.
  3744. PSA.19:5 - And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
  3745. PSA.19:6 - Set thou a wicked man over him, and let Satan stand at his right hand.
  3746. PSA.19:7 - When he shall be judged, let him be condemned, and let his prayer become sin.
  3747. PSA.19:8 - Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
  3748. PSA.19:9 - Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
  3749. PSA.19:10 - Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg, let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
  3750. PSA.19:11 - Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.
  3751. PSA.19:12 - Let there be none to extend mercy unto him, neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
  3752. PSA.19:13 - Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
  3753. PSA.19:14 - Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
  3754. PSA.19:15 - Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
  3755. PSA.19:16 - Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.
  3756. PSA.19:17 - As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him, as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.
  3757. PSA.19:18 - As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.
  3758. PSA.19:19 - Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
  3759. PSA.19:20 - Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
  3760. PSA.19:21 - But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake, because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.
  3761. PSA.19:22 - For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
  3762. PSA.19:23 - I am gone like the shadow when it declineth, I am tossed up and down as the locust.
  3763. PSA.19:24 - My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.
  3764. PSA.19:25 - I became also a reproach unto them, when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
  3765. PSA.19:26 - Help me, O LORD my God, O save me according to thy mercy
  3766. PSA.19:27 - That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it.
  3767. PSA.19:28 - Let them curse, but bless thou, when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.
  3768. PSA.19:29 - Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.
  3769. PSA.19:30 - I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.

  3774. PSA.110:4 - The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
  3775. PSA.110:5 - The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
  3776. PSA.110:6 - He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.
  3777. PSA.110:7 - He shall drink of the brook in the way, therefore shall he lift up the head.
  3778. PSA.111:1 - Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
  3779. PSA.111:2 - The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
  3780. PSA.111:3 - His work is honourable and glorious, and his righteousness endureth for ever.
  3781. PSA.111:4 - He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered, the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
  3782. PSA.111:5 - He hath given meat unto them that fear him, he will ever be mindful of his covenant.

  5332. ECC.2:15 - Then said I in my heart, As it happeneth to the fool, so it happeneth even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.
  5333. ECC.2:16 - For there is no remembrance of the wise more than of the fool for ever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten. And how dieth the wise man? as the fool.
  5334. ECC.2:17 - Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me, for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
  5335. ECC.2:18 - Yea, I hated all my labour which I had taken under the sun, because I should leave it unto the man that shall be after me.
  5336. ECC.2:19 - And who knoweth whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? yet shall he have rule over all my labour wherein I have laboured, and wherein I have shewed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.
  5337. ECC.2:20 - Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the labour which I took under the sun.
  5338. ECC.2:21 - For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.
  5339. ECC.2:22 - For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?
  5340. ECC.2:23 - For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.
  5341. ECC.2:24 - There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
  5342. ECC.2:25 - For who can eat, or who else can hasten hereunto, more than I?
  5343. ECC.2:26 - For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy, but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
  5344. ECC.3:1 - To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven
  5345. ECC.3:2 - A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
  5346. ECC.3:3 - A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
  5347. ECC.3:4 - A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
  5348. ECC.3:5 - A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
  5349. ECC.3:6 - A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
  5350. ECC.3:7 - A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
  5351. ECC.3:8 - A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
  5352. ECC.3:9 - What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
  5353. ECC.3:10 - I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
  5354. ECC.3:11 - He hath made every thing beautiful in his time, also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
  5355. ECC.3:12 - I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
  5356. ECC.3:13 - And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
  5357. ECC.3:14 - I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever, nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it, and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
  5358. ECC.3:15 - That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
  5359. ECC.3:16 - And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
  5360. ECC.3:17 - I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
  5361. ECC.3:18 - I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
  5362. ECC.3:19 - For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them, as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast, for all is vanity.
  5363. ECC.3:20 - All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
  5364. ECC.3:21 - Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
  5365. ECC.3:22 - Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion, for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
  5366. ECC.4:1 - So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun, and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.
  5367. ECC.4:2 - Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
  5368. ECC.4:3 - Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
  5369. ECC.4:4 - Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
  5370. ECC.4:5 - The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.
  5371. ECC.4:6 - Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.
  5372. ECC.4:7 - Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.
  5373. ECC.4:8 - There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother, yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.
  5374. ECC.4:9 - Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
  5375. ECC.4:10 - For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow, but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
  5376. ECC.4:11 - Again, if two lie together, then they have heat, but how can one be warm alone?
  5377. ECC.4:12 - And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
  5378. ECC.4:13 - Better is a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
  5379. ECC.4:14 - For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.
  5380. ECC.4:15 - I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.
  5381. ECC.4:16 - There is no end of all the people, even of all that have been before them, they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
  5382. ECC.5:1 - Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they consider not that they do evil.
  5383. ECC.5:2 - Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God, for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth, therefore let thy words be few.
  5384. ECC.5:3 - For a dream cometh through the multitude of business; and a fool's voice is known by multitude of words.
  5385. ECC.5:4 - When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools, pay that which thou hast vowed.
  5386. ECC.5:5 - Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.
  5387. ECC.5:6 - Suffer not thy mouth to cause thy flesh to sin; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error, wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?
  5388. ECC.5:7 - For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also divers vanities, but fear thou God.
  5389. ECC.5:8 - If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter, for he that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.
  5390. ECC.5:9 - Moreover the profit of the earth is for all, the king himself is served by the field.
  5391. ECC.5:10 - He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase, this is also vanity.
  5392. ECC.5:11 - When goods increase, they are increased that eat them, and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
  5393. ECC.5:12 - The sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eat little or much, but the abundance of the rich will not suffer him to sleep.
  5394. ECC.5:13 - There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
  5395. ECC.5:14 - But those riches perish by evil travail, and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.
  5396. ECC.5:15 - As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.
  5397. ECC.5:16 - And this also is a sore evil, that in all points as he came, so shall he go, and what profit hath he that hath laboured for the wind?
  5398. ECC.5:17 - All his days also he eateth in darkness, and he hath much sorrow and wrath with his sickness.
  5399. ECC.5:18 - Behold that which I have seen, it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him, for it is his portion.
  5400. ECC.5:19 - Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.
  5401. ECC.5:20 - For he shall not much remember the days of his life; because God answereth him in the joy of his heart.
  5402. ECC.6:1 - There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men
  5403. ECC.6:2 - A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it, this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
  5404. ECC.6:3 - If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.
  5405. ECC.6:4 - For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.
  5406. ECC.6:5 - Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known any thing, this hath more rest than the other.
  5407. ECC.6:6 - Yea, though he live a thousand years twice told, yet hath he seen no good, do not all go to one place?
  5408. ECC.6:7 - All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled.
  5409. ECC.6:8 - For what hath the wise more than the fool? what hath the poor, that knoweth to walk before the living?
  5410. ECC.6:9 - Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire, this is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
  5411. ECC.6:10 - That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it is man, neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he.
  5412. ECC.6:11 - Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?
  5413. ECC.6:12 - For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?
  5414. ECC.7:1 - A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.
  5415. ECC.7:2 - It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting, for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.
  5416. ECC.7:3 - Sorrow is better than laughter, for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.
  5417. ECC.7:4 - The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
  5418. ECC.7:5 - It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.
  5419. ECC.7:6 - For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool, this also is vanity.
  5420. ECC.7:7 - Surely oppression maketh a wise man mad; and a gift destroyeth the heart.
  5421. ECC.7:8 - Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
  5422. ECC.7:9 - Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry, for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.
  5423. ECC.7:10 - Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.
  5424. ECC.7:11 - Wisdom is good with an inheritance, and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.
  5425. ECC.7:12 - For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence, but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.
  5426. ECC.7:13 - Consider the work of God, for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?
  5427. ECC.7:14 - In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider, God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
  5428. ECC.7:15 - All things have I seen in the days of my vanity, there is a just man that perisheth in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man that prolongeth his life in his wickedness.
  5429. ECC.7:16 - Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise, why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
  5430. ECC.7:17 - Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish, why shouldest thou die before thy time?
  5431. ECC.7:18 - It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand, for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.
  5432. ECC.7:19 - Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city.
  5433. ECC.7:20 - For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
  5434. ECC.7:21 - Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee
  5435. ECC.7:22 - For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.
  5436. ECC.7:23 - All this have I proved by wisdom, I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.
  5437. ECC.7:24 - That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out?
  5438. ECC.7:25 - I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness
  5439. ECC.7:26 - And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands, whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.
  5440. ECC.7:27 - Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account
  5441. ECC.7:28 - Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not, one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
  5442. ECC.7:29 - Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
  5443. ECC.8:1 - Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man's wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.
  5444. ECC.8:2 - I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.
  5445. ECC.8:3 - Be not hasty to go out of his sight, stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.
  5446. ECC.8:4 - Where the word of a king is, there is power, and who may say unto him, What doest thou?
  5447. ECC.8:5 - Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing, and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment.
  5448. ECC.8:6 - Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
  5449. ECC.8:7 - For he knoweth not that which shall be, for who can tell him when it shall be?
  5450. ECC.8:8 - There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death, and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
  5451. ECC.8:9 - All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun, there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.
  5452. ECC.8:10 - And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done, this is also vanity.
  5453. ECC.8:11 - Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
  5454. ECC.8:12 - Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him
  5455. ECC.8:13 - But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.
  5456. ECC.8:14 - There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous, I said that this also is vanity.
  5457. ECC.8:15 - Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry, for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun.
  5458. ECC.8:16 - When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth, (for also there is that neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes )
  5459. ECC.8:17 - Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun, because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea further; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.
  5460. ECC.9:1 - For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this, that the righteous, and the wise, and their works, are in the hand of God, no man knoweth either love or hatred by all that is before them.
  5461. ECC.9:2 - All things come alike to all, there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not, as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.
  5462. ECC.9:3 - This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all, yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.
  5463. ECC.9:4 - For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope, for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
  5464. ECC.9:5 - For the living know that they shall die, but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
  5465. ECC.9:6 - Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
  5466. ECC.9:7 - Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works.
  5467. ECC.9:8 - Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.
  5468. ECC.9:9 - Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity, for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
  5469. ECC.9:10 - Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
  5470. ECC.9:11 - I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
  5471. ECC.9:12 - For man also knoweth not his time, as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
  5472. ECC.9:13 - This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me
  5473. ECC.9:14 - There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it
  5474. ECC.9:15 - Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.
  5475. ECC.9:16 - Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength, nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
  5476. ECC.9:17 - The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools.
  5477. ECC.9:18 - Wisdom is better than weapons of war, but one sinner destroyeth much good.
  5478. ECC.10:1 - Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour, so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.
  5479. ECC.10:2 - A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left.
  5480. ECC.10:3 - Yea also, when he that is a fool walketh by the way, his wisdom faileth him, and he saith to every one that he is a fool.
  5481. ECC.10:4 - If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.
  5482. ECC.10:5 - There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler
  5483. ECC.10:6 - Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place.
  5484. ECC.10:7 - I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth.
  5485. ECC.10:8 - He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.
  5486. ECC.10:9 - Whoso removeth stones shall be hurt therewith; and he that cleaveth wood shall be endangered thereby.
  5487. ECC.10:10 - If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength, but wisdom is profitable to direct.
  5488. ECC.10:11 - Surely the serpent will bite without enchantment; and a babbler is no better.
  5489. ECC.10:12 - The words of a wise man's mouth are gracious; but the lips of a fool will swallow up himself.
  5490. ECC.10:13 - The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness, and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.
  5491. ECC.10:14 - A fool also is full of words, a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?
  5492. ECC.10:15 - The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.
  5493. ECC.10:16 - Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!
  5494. ECC.10:17 - Blessed art thou, O land, when thy king is the son of nobles, and thy princes eat in due season, for strength, and not for drunkenness!
  5495. ECC.10:18 - By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.
  5496. ECC.10:19 - A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry, but money answereth all things.
  5497. ECC.10:20 - Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber, for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
  5498. ECC.11:1 - Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou shalt find it after many days.
  5499. ECC.11:2 - Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.
  5500. ECC.11:3 - If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth, and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.
  5501. ECC.11:4 - He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
  5502. ECC.11:5 - As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child, even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
  5503. ECC.11:6 - In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand, for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.
  5504. ECC.11:7 - Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun
  5505. ECC.11:8 - But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.
  5506. ECC.11:9 - Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes, but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

  7059. JER.5:17 - And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat, they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds, they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees, they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.

  7061. JER.5:19 - And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not yours.
  7062. JER.5:20 - Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying,

  7121. JER.7:18 - The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

  7143. JER.8:6 - I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright, no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.
  7144. JER.8:7 - Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

  7146. JER.8:9 - The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken, lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
  7147. JER.8:10 - Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them, for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

  7169. JER.9:10 - For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled; they are gone.
  7170. JER.9:11 - And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.

  7178. JER.9:19 - For a voice of wailing is heard out of Zion, How are we spoiled! we are greatly confounded, because we have forsaken the land, because our dwellings have cast us out.

  7190. JER.10:5 - They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not, they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

  7209. JER.10:24 - O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.
  7210. JER.10:25 - Pour out thy fury upon the heathen that know thee not, and upon the families that call not on thy name, for they have eaten up Jacob, and devoured him, and consumed him, and have made his habitation desolate.

  7212. JER.11:2 - Hear ye the words of this covenant, and speak unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
  7213. JER.11:3 - And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,
  7214. JER.11:4 - Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you, so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God
  7215. JER.11:5 - That I may perform the oath which I have sworn unto your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as it is this day. Then answered I, and said, So be it, O LORD.
  7216. JER.11:6 - Then the LORD said unto me, Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, saying, Hear ye the words of this covenant, and do them.
  7217. JER.11:7 - For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.
  7218. JER.11:8 - Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart, therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.
  7219. JER.11:9 - And the LORD said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
  7220. JER.11:10 - They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them, the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
  7221. JER.11:11 - Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.
  7222. JER.11:12 - Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense, but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
  7223. JER.11:13 - For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal.
  7224. JER.11:14 - Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them, for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.
  7225. JER.11:15 - What hath my beloved to do in mine house, seeing she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? when thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest.

  7227. JER.11:17 - For the LORD of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Baal.
  7228. JER.11:18 - And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it, then thou shewedst me their doings.
  7229. JER.11:19 - But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.
  7230. JER.11:20 - But, O LORD of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them, for unto thee have I revealed my cause.

  7233. JER.11:23 - And there shall be no remnant of them, for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, even the year of their visitation.
  7234. JER.12:1 - Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee, yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments, Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?
  7235. JER.12:2 - Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root, they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit, thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins.
  7236. JER.12:3 - But thou, O LORD, knowest me, thou hast seen me, and tried mine heart toward thee, pull them out like sheep for the slaughter, and prepare them for the day of slaughter.
  7237. JER.12:4 - How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? the beasts are consumed, and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end.
  7238. JER.12:5 - If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?
  7239. JER.12:6 - For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee, believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee.
  7240. JER.12:7 - I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.
  7241. JER.12:8 - Mine heritage is unto me as a lion in the forest; it crieth out against me, therefore have I hated it.
  7242. JER.12:9 - Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.
  7243. JER.12:10 - Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.
  7244. JER.12:11 - They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart.
  7245. JER.12:12 - The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness, for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land, no flesh shall have peace.
  7246. JER.12:13 - They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns, they have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit, and they shall be ashamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
  7247. JER.12:14 - Thus saith the LORD against all mine evil neighbours, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them.
  7248. JER.12:15 - And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land.
  7249. JER.12:16 - And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, The LORD liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people.
  7250. JER.12:17 - But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.
  7251. JER.13:1 - Thus saith the LORD unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water.
  7252. JER.13:2 - So I got a girdle according to the word of the LORD, and put it on my loins.
  7253. JER.13:3 - And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying,
  7254. JER.13:4 - Take the girdle that thou hast got, which is upon thy loins, and arise, go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock.
  7255. JER.13:5 - So I went, and hid it by Euphrates, as the LORD commanded me.
  7256. JER.13:6 - And it came to pass after many days, that the LORD said unto me, Arise, go to Euphrates, and take the girdle from thence, which I commanded thee to hide there.
  7257. JER.13:7 - Then I went to Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it, and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing.
  7258. JER.13:8 - Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
  7259. JER.13:9 - Thus saith the LORD, After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem.
  7260. JER.13:10 - This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.
  7261. JER.13:11 - For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory, but they would not hear.
  7262. JER.13:12 - Therefore thou shalt speak unto them this word; Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Every bottle shall be filled with wine, and they shall say unto thee, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine?
  7263. JER.13:13 - Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon David's throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.
  7264. JER.13:14 - And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the LORD, I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them.
  7265. JER.13:15 - Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud, for the LORD hath spoken.
  7266. JER.13:16 - Give glory to the LORD your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.

  7416. JER.20:10 - For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him.
  7417. JER.20:11 - But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one, therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail, they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper, their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten.
  7418. JER.20:12 - But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them, for unto thee have I opened my cause.
  7419. JER.20:13 - Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD, for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
  7420. JER.20:14 - Cursed be the day wherein I was born, let not the day wherein my mother bare me be blessed.
  7421. JER.20:15 - Cursed be the man who brought tidings to my father, saying, A man child is born unto thee; making him very glad.
  7422. JER.20:16 - And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not, and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide;
  7423. JER.20:17 - Because he slew me not from the womb; or that my mother might have been my grave, and her womb to be always great with me.
  7424. JER.20:18 - Wherefore came I forth out of the womb to see labour and sorrow, that my days should be consumed with shame?
  7425. JER.21:1 - The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, when king Zedekiah sent unto him Pashur the son of Melchiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, saying,
  7426. JER.21:2 - Inquire, I pray thee, of the LORD for us; for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon maketh war against us; if so be that the LORD will deal with us according to all his wondrous works, that he may go up from us.
  7427. JER.21:3 - Then said Jeremiah unto them, Thus shall ye say to Zedekiah
  7428. JER.21:4 - Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Behold, I will turn back the weapons of war that are in your hands, wherewith ye fight against the king of Babylon, and against the Chaldeans, which besiege you without the walls, and I will assemble them into the midst of this city.
  7429. JER.21:5 - And I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath.
  7430. JER.21:6 - And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast, they shall die of a great pestilence.
  7431. JER.21:7 - And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such as are left in this city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those that seek their life, and he shall smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither have pity, nor have mercy.
  7432. JER.21:8 - And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.
  7433. JER.21:9 - He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence, but he that goeth out, and falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey.
  7434. JER.21:10 - For I have set my face against this city for evil, and not for good, saith the LORD, it shall be given into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire.
  7435. JER.21:11 - And touching the house of the king of Judah, say, Hear ye the word of the LORD;
  7436. JER.21:12 - O house of David, thus saith the LORD; Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.
  7437. JER.21:13 - Behold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley, and rock of the plain, saith the LORD; which say, Who shall come down against us? or who shall enter into our habitations?
  7438. JER.21:14 - But I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings, saith the LORD, and I will kindle a fire in the forest thereof, and it shall devour all things round about it.
  7439. JER.22:1 - Thus saith the LORD; Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and speak there this word,
  7440. JER.22:2 - And say, Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, that sittest upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy people that enter in by these gates
  7441. JER.22:3 - Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.
  7442. JER.22:4 - For if ye do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people.
  7443. JER.22:5 - But if ye will not hear these words, I swear by myself, saith the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation.
  7444. JER.22:6 - For thus saith the LORD unto the king's house of Judah; Thou art Gilead unto me, and the head of Lebanon, yet surely I will make thee a wilderness, and cities which are not inhabited.
  7445. JER.22:7 - And I will prepare destroyers against thee, every one with his weapons, and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, and cast them into the fire.
  7446. JER.22:8 - And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great city?
  7447. JER.22:9 - Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them.
  7448. JER.22:10 - Weep ye not for the dead, neither bemoan him, but weep sore for him that goeth away, for he shall return no more, nor see his native country.
  7449. JER.22:11 - For thus saith the LORD touching Shallum the son of Josiah king of Judah, which reigned instead of Josiah his father, which went forth out of this place; He shall not return thither any more
  7450. JER.22:12 - But he shall die in the place whither they have led him captive, and shall see this land no more.
  7451. JER.22:13 - Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;
  7452. JER.22:14 - That saith, I will build me a wide house and large chambers, and cutteth him out windows; and it is cieled with cedar, and painted with vermilion.
  7453. JER.22:15 - Shalt thou reign, because thou closest thyself in cedar? did not thy father eat and drink, and do judgment and justice, and then it was well with him?
  7454. JER.22:16 - He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him, was not this to know me? saith the LORD.
  7455. JER.22:17 - But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.
  7456. JER.22:18 - Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory!
  7457. JER.22:19 - He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.
  7458. JER.22:20 - Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice in Bashan, and cry from the passages, for all thy lovers are destroyed.
  7459. JER.22:21 - I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.
  7460. JER.22:22 - The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go into captivity, surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.
  7461. JER.22:23 - O inhabitant of Lebanon, that makest thy nest in the cedars, how gracious shalt thou be when pangs come upon thee, the pain as of a woman in travail!
  7462. JER.22:24 - As I live, saith the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence;
  7463. JER.22:25 - And I will give thee into the hand of them that seek thy life, and into the hand of them whose face thou fearest, even into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.
  7464. JER.22:26 - And I will cast thee out, and thy mother that bare thee, into another country, where ye were not born; and there shall ye die.
  7465. JER.22:27 - But to the land whereunto they desire to return, thither shall they not return.
  7466. JER.22:28 - Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?
  7467. JER.22:29 - O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.
  7468. JER.22:30 - Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days, for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.
  7469. JER.23:1 - Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
  7470. JER.23:2 - Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them, behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.
  7471. JER.23:3 - And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
  7472. JER.23:4 - And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.
  7473. JER.23:5 - Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
  7474. JER.23:6 - In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely, and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
  7475. JER.23:7 - Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
  7476. JER.23:8 - But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
  7477. JER.23:9 - Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.
  7478. JER.23:10 - For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.
  7479. JER.23:11 - For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.
  7480. JER.23:12 - Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness, they shall be driven on, and fall therein, for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.
  7481. JER.23:13 - And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.
  7482. JER.23:14 - I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing, they commit adultery, and walk in lies, they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness, they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
  7483. JER.23:15 - Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall, for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
  7484. JER.23:16 - Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you, they make you vain, they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
  7485. JER.23:17 - They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
  7486. JER.23:18 - For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?
  7487. JER.23:19 - Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind, it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
  7488. JER.23:20 - The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart, in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.
  7489. JER.23:21 - I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran, I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
  7490. JER.23:22 - But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
  7491. JER.23:23 - Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?
  7492. JER.23:24 - Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
  7493. JER.23:25 - I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
  7494. JER.23:26 - How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
  7495. JER.23:27 - Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
  7496. JER.23:28 - The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.
  7497. JER.23:29 - Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
  7498. JER.23:30 - Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
  7499. JER.23:31 - Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
  7500. JER.23:32 - Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them, therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.
  7501. JER.23:33 - And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.
  7502. JER.23:34 - And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.
  7503. JER.23:35 - Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken?
  7504. JER.23:36 - And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more, for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.
  7505. JER.23:37 - Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken?
  7506. JER.23:38 - But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD;
  7507. JER.23:39 - Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence
  7508. JER.23:40 - And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.
  7509. JER.24:1 - The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
  7510. JER.24:2 - One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe, and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
  7511. JER.24:3 - Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
  7512. JER.24:4 - Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
  7513. JER.24:5 - Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
  7514. JER.24:6 - For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land, and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
  7515. JER.24:7 - And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD, and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
  7516. JER.24:8 - And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the LORD, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in the land of Egypt
  7517. JER.24:9 - And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
  7518. JER.24:10 - And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers.
  7519. JER.25:1 - The word that came to Jeremiah concerning all the people of Judah in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that was the first year of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon;
  7520. JER.25:2 - The which Jeremiah the prophet spake unto all the people of Judah, and to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying,
  7521. JER.25:3 - From the thirteenth year of Josiah the son of Amon king of Judah, even unto this day, that is the three and twentieth year, the word of the LORD hath come unto me, and I have spoken unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye have not hearkened.
  7522. JER.25:4 - And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.
  7523. JER.25:5 - They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever
  7524. JER.25:6 - And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.
  7525. JER.25:7 - Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the LORD; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.
  7526. JER.25:8 - Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Because ye have not heard my words,
  7527. JER.25:9 - Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations.
  7528. JER.25:10 - Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.
  7529. JER.25:11 - And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Ba
