4 Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

7 Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong : thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance : they that did see me without fled from me.
12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I have heard the slander of many : fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they de. vised to take away my life.
14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord : I said Thou art my God.
15 My times are in thy hand : deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant': save me for thy mercies' sake,
17 Let me not be ashamed, O Lord ; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.
18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
