19-16:7†††† I wil prayse the Lorde, who hath giuen me counsell: my reines also teach me in the nightes.

19-16:8†††† I haue set the Lord alwayes before me: for hee is at my right hand: therefore I shall not slide.

19-16:9†††† Wherefore mine heart is glad and my tongue reioyceth: my flesh also doeth rest in hope.

The prayer of Dauid.

19-17:1†††† Heare the right, O Lorde, consider my crye: hearken vnto my prayer of lips vnfained.

19-17:2†††† Let my sentence come forth from thy presence, and let thine eyes beholde equitie.

19-17:3†††† Thou hast prooued and visited mine heart in the night: thou hast tryed me, and foundest nothing: for I was purposed that my mouth should not offend.

19-17:4†††† Concerning the workes of men, by the wordes of thy lips I kept mee from the paths of the cruell man.

19-17:5†††† Stay my steps in thy paths, that my feete doe not slide.

19-17:6†††† I haue called vpon thee: surely thou wilt heare me, O God: incline thine eare to me, and hearken vnto my wordes.

19-17:7†††† Shewe thy marueilous mercies, thou that art the Sauiour of them that trust in thee, from such as resist thy right hand.

19-17:8†††† Keepe me as the apple of the eye: hide me vnder the shadowe of thy wings,

19-17:9†††† From the wicked that oppresse mee, from mine enemies, which compasse me round about for my soule.

19-17:10††† They are inclosed in their owne fat, and they haue spoken proudely with their mouth.

19-17:11††† They haue compassed vs now in our steps: they haue set their eyes to bring downe to the ground:

19-17:12††† Like as a lyon that is greedy of pray, and as it were a lyons whelp lurking in secret places.

19-17:13††† Vp Lord, disappoint him: cast him downe: deliuer my soule from the wicked with thy sworde,

19-17:14††† From men by thine hand, O Lorde, from men of the world, who haue their portion in this life, whose bellies thou fillest with thine hid treasure: their children haue ynough, and leaue the rest of their substance for their children.

19-17:15††† But I will beholde thy face in righteousnes, and when I awake, I shalbe satisfied with thine image.

To him that excelleth.
A
Psalme of Dauid the seruant of the Lorde,
which
spake vnto the Lord the wordes of this song
(in
the day that the Lorde deliuered him from the hande of all his enemies,
and
from the hand of Saul) and sayd,

19-18:1†††† I will loue thee dearely, O Lord my strength.

19-18:2†††† The Lorde is my rocke, and my fortresse, and he that deliuereth me, my God and my strength: in him will I trust, my shield, the horne also of my saluation, and my refuge.

19-18:3†††† I will call vpon the Lorde, which is worthie to be praysed: so shall I be safe from mine enemies.

19-18:4†††† The sorowes of death compassed me, and the floods of wickednes made me afraide.

19-18:5†††† The sorowes of the graue haue compassed me about: the snares of death ouertooke me.

19-18:6†††† But in my trouble did I call vpon the Lord, and cryed vnto my God: he heard my voyce out of his Temple, and my crye did come before him, euen into his eares.

19-18:7†††† Then the earth trembled, and quaked: the foundations also of the mountaines mooued and shooke, because he was angrie.

19-18:8†††† Smoke went out at his nostrels, & a consuming fire out of his mouth: coales were kindled thereat.

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

19-18:10††† And he rode vpon Cherub and did flie, and he came flying vpon the wings of the winde.

19-18:11††† He made darkenes his secrete place, and his pauilion round about him, euen darkenesse of waters, and cloudes of the ayre.

19-18:12††† At the brightnes of his presence his clouds passed, haylestones and coles of fire.

19-18:13††† The Lord also thundred in the heauen, and the Highest gaue his voyce, haylestones and coales of fire.

19-18:14††† Then hee sent out his arrowes and scattred them, and he increased lightnings and destroyed them.

19-18:15††† And the chanels of waters were seene, and the foundations of the worlde were discouered at thy rebuking, O Lorde, at the blasting of the breath of thy nostrels.

19-18:16††† He hath sent downe from aboue and taken mee: hee hath drawen mee out of many waters.

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

19-18:18††† They preuented me in the day of my calamitie: but the Lord was my stay.

19-18:19††† Hee brought mee foorth also into a large place: hee deliuered mee because hee fauoured me.

19-18:20††† The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousnes: according to the purenes of mine hands he recompensed me:

19-18:21††† Because I kept the wayes of the Lord, and did not wickedly against my God.

19-18:22††† For all his Lawes were before mee, and I did not cast away his commaundements from mee.

19-18:23††† I was vpright also with him, & haue kept me from my wickednes.

19-18:24††† Therefore the Lorde rewarded me according to my righteousnesse, and according to the purenes of mine hands in his sight.

19-18:25††† With the godly thou wilt shewe thy selfe godly: with the vpright man thou wilt shew thy selfe vpright.

19-18:26††† With the pure thou wilt shewe thy selfe pure, and with the froward thou wilt shewe thy selfe froward.

19-18:27††† Thus thou wilt saue the poore people, and wilt cast downe the proude lookes.

19-18:28††† Surely thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God wil lighten my darkenes.

19-18:29††† For by thee I haue broken through an hoste, and by my God I haue leaped ouer a wall.

19-18:30††† The way of God is vncorrupt: the worde of the Lord is tried in the fire: he is a shield to all that trust in him.

19-18:31††† For who is God besides the Lord? And who is mightie saue our God?

19-18:32††† God girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way vpright.

19-18:33††† He maketh my feete like hindes feete, and setteth me vpon mine high places.

19-18:34††† He teacheth mine hands to fight: so that a bowe of brasse is broken with mine armes.

19-18:35††† Thou hast also giuen me the shield of thy saluation, and thy right hand hath stayed me, and thy louing kindenes hath caused me to increase.

19-18:36††† Thou hast enlarged my steps vnder mee, and mine heeles haue not slid.

19-18:37††† I haue pursued mine enemies, and taken them, and haue not turned againe till I had consumed them.

19-18:38††† I haue wounded them, that they were not able to rise: they are fallen vnder my feete.

19-18:39††† For thou hast girded me with strength to battell: them, that rose against me, thou hast subdued vnder me.

19-18:40††† And thou hast giuen me the neckes of mine enemies, that I might destroy them that hate me.

19-18:41††† They cryed but there was none to saue them, euen vnto the Lorde, but hee answered them not.

19-18:42††† Then I did beate them small as the dust before the winde: I did treade them flat as the clay in the streetes.

19-18:43††† Thou hast deliuered me from the contentions of the people: thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people, whom I haue not knowen, shal serue me.

19-18:44††† As soone as they heare, they shall obey me: the strangers shall be in subiection to me.

19-18:45††† Strangers shall shrinke away, and feare in their priuie chambers.

19-18:46††† Let the Lorde liue, and blessed be my strength, and the God of my saluation be exalted.

19-18:47††† It is God that giueth me power to auenge me, and subdueth the people vnder me.

19-18:48††† O my deliuerer from mine enemies, euen thou hast set mee vp from them, that rose against me: thou hast deliuered mee from the cruell man.

19-18:49††† Therefore I will prayse thee, O Lorde, among the nations, and wil sing vnto thy Name.

19-18:50††† Great deliuerances giueth hee vnto his King, and sheweth mercie to his anoynted, euen to Dauid, and to his seede for euer.
