6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever ; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows,

8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

9 Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear: forget also thine own. people, and thy father's house;

11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty : for he is thy Lord and worship thou him.

12 And the daughters of Tyre shall be there with a gift ; even the rich among

the people shall entreat thy favour.

18 The king's daughter is all glorious within ; her clothing is of wrought gold.

14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework; the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought


15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought; they shall enter into the king's palace.

16 Instead of thy father's, shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.

17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations.; therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.



OD is our refuge and strength, a very

present help in trouble : 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the

sea :

3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swellings thereof. Selah.

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.

5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were

moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cut. teth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.

10 Be still, and know that I am God : I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. .

11 The Lord of hosts is with us: the God of Jacob is our refuge, Selah. .



CLAP O your hands, all ye people; shout

unto God with the voice of triumph. 2 For the Lord most bigh is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

3 He shall subdue the people under us; and the nations under our feet.

4 He shall choose our inheritance for us,

the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.

5 God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises ; sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth : sing ye praises with understanding.

8 God reigneth over the heathen: Goal sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.

9 The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belony unto God; he is greatly exalted.


REAT is the Lord, and greatly to be

praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.

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.

3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.

1 For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.

5 They saw it, and so they marvelled

13 This their way is their folly : yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selab.

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.

15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave; for he shall receive me, Selah.

16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased :

17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away ; his glory shall not descend after him.

18 Though whiles he lived he blessed his soul : (and men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself:)
