Until these calamities be overpast.
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. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let thy glory be above all the earth. 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. My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations. For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, And thy truth unto the clouds.
Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens:

work wickedness; Ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth. The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they be born, speaking
lies. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: They are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear; Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, Charming never so wisely.

prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies. Slay them not, lest my people forget: Scatter them by thy power; And bring them down, O Lord our shield. 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. Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they
may not be:
And let them know that God ruleth in Jacob

But I will sing of thy power;
Michtam of David, to teach When he strove with Aram-naharaim and with Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, Thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us
again. Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast
broken it: Heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: Thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonish
ment. Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, That it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. That thy beloved may
be delivered; Save with thy right hand, and hear me. God hath spoken in his holiness;
