King James Version (KJV)
85Â Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land: thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2Â Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people, thou hast covered all their sin. Selah.
3Â Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
4Â Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
5Â Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
6Â Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7Â Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
8Â 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.
9Â Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; that glory may dwell in our land.
10Â Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11Â Truth shall spring out of the earth; and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12Â Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.
13Â Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.
102Â Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee.
2Â 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.
3Â For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.
4Â My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.
5Â By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.
6Â I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
7Â I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
8Â Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.
9Â For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping.
10Â Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down.
11Â My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.
12Â But thou, O Lord, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.
13Â Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.
14Â For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.
15Â So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.
16Â When the Lord shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.
17Â He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.
18Â This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the Lord.
19Â For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;
20Â To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;
21Â To declare the name of the Lord in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
22Â When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve the Lord.
23Â He weakened my strength in the way; he shortened my days.
24Â I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: thy years are throughout all generations.
25Â Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
26Â 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:
27Â But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
28Â The children of thy servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before thee.
106Â Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
2Â Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? who can shew forth all his praise?
3Â Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.
4Â Remember me, O Lord, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
5Â That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
6Â We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
7Â Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.
8Â Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
9Â He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
10Â And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
11Â And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
12Â Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
13Â They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
14Â But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
15Â And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
16Â They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the Lord.
17Â The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan and covered the company of Abiram.
18Â And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
19Â They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.
20Â Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.
21Â They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
22Â Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.
23Â Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.
24Â Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:
25Â But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord.
26Â Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
27Â To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
28Â They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
29Â Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
30Â Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed.
31Â And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.
32Â They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
33Â Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
34Â They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them:
35Â But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
36Â And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
37Â Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
38Â 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.
39Â Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.
40Â Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
41Â And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.
42Â Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
43Â Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
44Â Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:
45Â And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
46Â He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
47Â 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.
48Â Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the Lord.
123Â Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2Â Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
3Â Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4Â Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
137Â By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2Â We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
3Â For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
4Â How shall we sing the Lord‘s song in a strange land?
5Â If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
6Â If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
7Â Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.
8Â O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
9Â Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
