Let them beashamed which transgress without cause.
Shew me thy ways, O Lord;
Teach me thy paths.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me:
For thou art the God of my salvation;
On thee do I wait all the day.
Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy

lovingkindnesses; For they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my trans

gressions:
According to thy mercy remember thou me
For thy goodness' sake, O Lord.
Good and upright is the Lord:
Therefore will he teach sinners in the

way.
The meek will he guide in judgment:
And the meek will he teach his way.
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth
Unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
For thy name's sake, O Lord,
Pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
What man is he that feareth the Lord ?
Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
His soul shall dwell at ease;
And his seed shall inherit the earth.
The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him;
And he will shew them his covenant.

Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord;
For he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me;
For I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged:
O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain;
And forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many;
And they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me:
Let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me;
For I wait on thee.
Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

XXVI

A Psalm of David Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine in

tegrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall

not slide.
Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
Try my reins and my heart.
For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes:
And I have walked in thy truth.
I have not sat with vain persons,

Neither will I go in with dissemblers.
I have hated the congregation of evil doers;
And will not sit with the wicked.
I will wash mine hands in innocency:
So will I com pass thine altar, O Lord:
That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving,
And tell of all thy wondrous works.
Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house,
And the place where thine honour dwelleth.
Gather not my

soul with sinners,
Nor my life with bloody men:
In whose hands is mischief,
And their right hand is full of bribes.
But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity:
Redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
My foot standeth in an even place:
In the congregations will I bless the Lord.

XXVII

A Psalm of David 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? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes,

came upon me to eat up my flesh, They stumbled and fell.

Though an host should encamp against me, my heart

shall not fear: Though war should rise against me, in this will I

be confident. 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 enquire in

his temple. 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. 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. Hear, O Lord, when I

When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take me

up. Teach me thy way, O Lord, And lead me in a plain path, because of mine ene

and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, unless I had believed To see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the

go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto

thee, When I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle. Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the

workers of iniquity,
