David Imploreth God’s Aid


1-4 David strengtheneth his prayer by the consciousness of his religion,

A Prayer of David.

BOW down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.

Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee daily.

Rejoice the soul of thy serant: for unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.

5-10 by the goodness and power of God,

For thou LORD, art good and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.

Give ear, O LORD unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O LORD; neither are therre any works like unto thy works.

All nations whom thou hast made shall come and worship before thee, O LORD; and shall glorify thy name.

For thou art great, and doest wondrous things; thou art God alone.

11-13 He desireth the continuance of former grace,

Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

I will praise thee, O LORD my God,with all my heart: and I will glorify thy name for ever more.

For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

14-17 Complaining of the proud, he craveth some token of God’s goodness,

O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.

But thou, O LORD, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long-suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give thy strength unto thy servant, and save the son of thine handmaid.

Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, has holpen me, and comforted me.


1-3 The nature and glory of the church,

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah

HIS foundation is in the holy mountains.

The LORD loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

4-7 The increase, honour, and comfort of the members thereof,

I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philitia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there.

And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the Highest himself shall establish her.

The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.
