And he sayde.]


19-18:1†††† I wyll entirely loue thee O God my strength,

19-18:2†††† God is my stony rocke & my fortresse, and my delyuerer: my Lorde, my castell in whom I wyll trust, my buckler, the horne of my saluation, & my refuge.

19-18:3†††† I wyll call vpon God, who is most worthy to be praysed: so I shall be safe from myne enemies.

19-18:4†††† The panges of death haue compassed me about: and the outragiousnes of the wicked haue astonyed me with feare.

19-18:5†††† The panges of a graue haue compassed me about: the snares of death ouertoke me.

19-18:6†††† But in this my distresse I dyd call vppon God, and I made my complaynt vnto my Lorde: he hearde my voyce out of his temple, and my crye came before his face, euen vnto his eares.

19-18:7†††† The earth trembled and quaked: the very foundations of the hylles tottered and shooke, because he was wroth.

19-18:8†††† In his anger a smoke ascended vp: and a fire out of his mouth dyd cosume, and euery cole therof dyd set a fire.

19-18:9†††† He bowed the heauens also, and he came downe: and it was darke vnder his feete.

19-18:10††† He ridde vpon the Cherub, and he dyd flee: he came fleeyng vpon the wynges of the wynde.

19-18:11††† For his secrete place he dyd put darkenesse: and for his pauilion rounde about hym, he dyd put darknesse of waters in cloudes of the ayre.

19-18:12††† His cloudes, haylestones, and coles of fire: fell downe before hym after lyghtnyng.

19-18:14††† He shot out his arrowes, and scattered them: he cast foorth much lyghtnynges, and destroyed them.

19-18:15††† And the bottomes of waters appeared, and the foundations of the rounde worlde were discouered at thy chidyng, O God: at the blast of the breath of thine anger.

19-18:16††† He hath sent downe from aboue to fetch me: he hath taken me out of many waters.

19-18:17††† He hath deliuered me from my strong enemie: and from them which hate me, for they were to stout for me.

19-18:20††† God rewarded me after my righteous dealyng: accordyng to the cleannesse of myne handes he recompensed me.

19-18:21††† Because I had kept the wayes of God: and had not wickedly shronke from my God.

19-18:22††† For all his lawes were before me: and I reiected none of his commaundementes from me.

19-18:23††† And I was sounde & pure towardes hym: and I was weery lest I shoulde offende hym with my wickednesse.

19-18:24††† Therfore hath God rewarded me after my righteous dealyng: and accordyng to my cleannesse of my handes in his syght.

19-18:25††† With the holy thou wylt be holy: with a perfect man thou wylt be perfect.

19-18:26††† With the cleane thou wylt be cleane: and with the frowarde thou wylt be frowarde.

19-18:27††† For thou hast saued the people oppressed: and thou hast brought downe the hygh lokes of the proude.

19-18:28††† Thou also hast lyghtened my candell: God my Lorde hath made my darknesse to be lyght.

19-18:29††† For in thee I haue discomfited an hoast of men: and with the helpe of my Lorde I haue skipped ouer the wall.

19-18:30††† The way of the Lorde is a perfect way, the worde of God is tryed in the fire: he is a shielde vnto all them that put their trust in hym.

19-18:31††† For who is a Lorde besides God: or who hath any strength besides our Lorde?

19-18:32††† It is God that hath gyrded me with valiauntnesse of warre: and he hath made my way playne.

19-18:33††† He hath made my feete lyke Hartes feete: and he hath set me vp on hygh.

19-18:34††† He hath taught my handes to fyght: and myne armes to breake a bowe of steele.

19-18:35††† Thou hast geuen me the shielde of thy saluation: thy ryght hande also hath helde me vp, and through thy great gentlenesse I haue increased.

19-18:36††† Thou hast made me roomth inough for to go on: so that my feete haue not slypt.

19-18:37††† I haue pursued myne enemies and onertaken them: neither dyd I returne backe vntyll I had destroyed them.

19-18:38††† I smote them downe, and they are not able to aryse: they haue taken such a fall vnder my feete.

19-18:39††† Thou hast gyrded me with strength vnto battayle: thou hast made them to bowe downe vnder me who haue rysen vp agaynst me.

19-18:40††† Thou hast geuen me myne enemies neckes: and I haue destroyed them that hated me.

19-18:41††† They cryed, but there was none to saue them: they cryed vnto God, but he dyd not heare them.

19-18:42††† I dyd beat them to powder, like vnto dust in a wynde: I haue brought them as lowe as durt in the streates.

19-18:43††† Thou hast deliuered me from sedition of the people, and thou hast made me head of the heathen: a people whom I haue not knowen serueth me,

19-18:44††† assoone as they hearde of me, they obeyed me.

19-18:45††† Children of a straunger haue made a lie vnto me: the heartes of the children of a straunger hath fayled them, and they feared in their [strong] holdes.

19-18:46††† God lyueth, and he [is] my strength most worthy of blisse: and the Lorde of my saluation ought to be magnified.

19-18:47††† It is God that hath geuen me power to take auengeaunce: and he hath subdued the people vnder me.

19-18:48††† It is he that is the aucthour of my deliuerie from myne enemies: and he hath set me vp aboue them that rose agaynst me, he hath ridde me from the wicked man.

19-18:49††† For this cause I wyll acknowledge thee O God among the gentiles: and syng psalmes vnto thy name.

19-18:50††† Who hath wonderfull oft deliuered his kyng: and he hath done mercifully vnto Dauid his annoynted, and vnto his seede for euermore.

19-19:3†††† No language, no wordes, no voyce of theirs is hearde:

19-19:4†††† yet their sounde goeth into all landes, and their wordes into the endes of the worlde. In them he hath set a tabernacle for the sunne:

19-19:5†††† which commeth foorth as a bridegrome out of his chamber, and reioyceth as a giaunt to runne his course.

19-19:6†††† His settyng foorth is from the vtmost part of heauen, and his circuite vnto the vtmost part therof: and there is nothing hyd from his heat.
