(90 in KJV) A Prayer of Moses the man of God.
1 Lord, you have been our refuge in all generations.
Before the mountains existed, and before the earth and the world were formed, even from age to age, You are.
Turn not man back to his low place, whereas you said, Return, you° sons of men?
For a thousand years in your sight are as the yesterday which is past, and as a watch in the night.
Years shall be * Gr. their vanities or rejections. vanity to them: let the morning pass away as grass.
In the morning let it flower, and pass away: in the evening let it droop, let it be withered and dried up.
For we have perished in your anger, and in your wrath we have been troubled.
You have set our transgressions before you: our age is in the light of your countenance.
For all our days are gone, and we have passed away in your wrath: our years have Gr. mediated. spun out their tale as a spider.
10  As for the days of our years, in them are seventy years; and if men should be in strength, eighty years: and Or, what is more than these. the greater part of them would be labor and trouble; for weakness overtakes us, and we shall be chastened.
11 Who knows the power of your wrath?
12 and who knows how to number his days because of the fear of your wrath? So manifest your right hand, and those that are instructed in wisdom in the heart.
13 Return, O Lord, how long? and § be entreated concerning your servants.
14 We have been satisfied in the morning with your mercy; and we did exult and rejoice:
15 let us rejoice in all our days, in return for the days wherein you did afflict us, the years wherein we saw evil.
16 And look upon your servants, and upon your works; and guide their children.
17 And let the brightness of the Lord our God be upon us: and do you ** Or, prosper. direct for us the works of our hands. †† Alex. + yes, prosper you the work of our hands.
(91 in KJV) Praise of a Song, by David.
1 He that dwells in the help of the Highest, shall sojourn under the shelter of the God of heaven.
He shall say to the Lord, You are my helper and my refuge: my God; I will hope in him.
For he shall deliver you from the snare of the hunters, from every troublesome matter.
He shall overshadow you with his shoulders, and you shall trust under his wings: his truth shall cover you with a shield.
You shall not be afraid of terror by night; nor of the arrow flying by day;
nor of the evil * See ver 3. thing that walks in darkness; nor of calamity, and the evil spirit at noon-day.
A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you observe and see the reward of sinners.
For you, O Lord, are my hope: you, my soul, have made the Most High your refuge.
10 No evils shall come upon you, and no scourge shall draw near to your dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge concerning you, to keep you in all your ways.
12  Mat 4. 6. They shall bear you up on their hands, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread on the asp and basilisk: and you shall trample on the lion and dragon.
14 For he has hoped in me, and I will deliver him: I will protect him, because he has known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will listen to him: I am with him in affliction; and I will deliver him, and glorify him.
16 I will satisfy him with length of days, and show him my salvation.
(92 in KJV) A Psalm of a Song for the Sabbath-day.
1 It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, O you Most High;
to proclaim your mercy in the morning, and your truth by night,
on a lute of ten strings, with a song on the harp.
For you, O Lord, have made me glad with your work: and in the operations of your hands will I exult.
How have your works been magnified, O Lord! your thoughts are very deep.
A foolish man will not know, and a senseless man will not understand this.
When the sinners spring up as the grass, and all the workers of iniquity * Perhaps, 'come to light'. have watched; it is that they may be utterly destroyed for ever.
But you, O Lord, are most high for ever.
Alex. + for behold your enemies, O Lord, as in Heb. For, behold, your enemies shall perish; and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10 But my horn shall be exalted as the horn of a unicorn; and my old age with rich Alex. oil. See Ps. 88. 20. mercy.
11 And my eye has seen my enemies, and my ear shall hear the wicked that rise up against me.
12 The righteous shall flourish as a palm tree: he shall be increased as the cedar in Libanus.
13 They that are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 Then shall they be increased in a § Gr. fat. fine old age; and they shall be prosperous; that they may declare
15 that the Lord my God is righteous, and there is no iniquity in him.
(93 in KJV) For * Alex. the sabbath-day. the day before the Sabbath, when the land was first inhabited, the praise of a Song by David.
1 The Lord reigns; he has clothed himself with honor: the Lord has clothed and girded himself with strength; for he has established the world, which shall not be moved.
Your throne is prepared of old: you are from everlasting.
The rivers have lifted up, O Lord, the rivers have lifted up their voices, Alex. + the floods will lift up their waves. See Heb.
at q. d. in answer to. the voices of many waters: the billows of the sea are wonderful: the Lord is wonderful in high places.
Your testimonies are made very sure: holiness becomes your house, O Lord, § Gr. to length of days. for ever.
(94 in KJV) A Psalm of David for the fourth day of the week.
1 The Lord is a God of vengeance; the God of vengeance * Gr. plural, bis. has declared himself.
Be you exalted, you that judge the earth: render a reward to the proud.
How long shall sinners, O Lord, how long shall sinners boast?
They will utter and speak unrighteousness; all the workers of iniquity will speak so.
They have afflicted your people, O Lord, and hurt your heritage.
They have slain the widow and fatherless, and murdered the stranger.
And they said, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob understand.
Understand now, you° simple among the people; and you° fools, at length be wise.
He that planted the ear, does he not hear? or he that formed the eye, does not he perceive?
10 He that chastises the heathen, shall not he punish, even he that teaches man knowledge?
11  1 Cor 3. 20. The Lord knows the thoughts of men, that they are vain.
12 Blessed is the man whoever you shall chasten, O Lord, and shall teach him out of your law;
13 to give him rest from evil days, until a pit be digged for the sinful one.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance;
15 until righteousness return to judgment, and all the upright in heart shall follow it. Pause.
16 Who will rise up for me against the transgressors? or who will stand up with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 If the Lord had not helped me, my soul had almost sojourned in Hades.
18 If I said, My foot has been moved;
19 your mercy, O Lord, helped me. O Lord, according to the multitude of my griefs within my heart, your consolation have Lit. 'have loved'. Alex. ἠὺφπαναν, 'have gladdened'. soothed my soul.
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with you, which frames mischief by an ordinance?
21 They will hunt for the soul of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood.
22 But the Lord was my refuge; and my God the helper of my hope.
23 And he will recompense to them their iniquity and their wickedness: the Lord our God shall utterly destroy them.
(95 in KJV) The praise of a Song by David.
1 Come, let us exult * Gr. to. in the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to God our Saviour.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great king over all gods: Heb. and Alex. omit this clause. See Ps. 93. 14. for the Lord will not cast off his people.
For the ends of the earth are in his hands; and the heights of the mountains are his.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and is hands formed the dry land.
Come, let us worship and fall down before him; and weep before the Lord that made us.
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Heb 3. 7-12. To-day, if you° will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, according to the day of Note, πειρασμοῦ is the reading of several editions. irritation in the wilderness:
where your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works.
10 Forty years was I grieved with this generation, and said, They do always err in their heart, and they have not known my ways.
11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.
(96 in KJV) When the house was built after the Captivity, a Song of David.
1 Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name: proclaim his salvation from day to day.
Publish his glory among the Gentiles, his wonderful works among all people.
For the Lord is great, and greatly to be praised: he is terrible above all gods.
For all the gods of the heathen are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.
Thanksgiving and beauty are before him: holiness and majesty are in his sanctuary.
Bring to the Lord, you° families of the Gentiles, bring to the Lord glory and honor.
Bring to the Lord the glory becoming his name: take offerings, and go into his courts.
Worship the Lord in his holy court: let all the earth tremble before him.
10 Say among the heathen, The Lord reigns: for he has established the world so that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people in righteousness.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and the earth exult; let the sea be moved, and the fullness of it.
12 The plains shall rejoice, and all things in them: then shall all the trees of the wood exult before the presence of the Lord:
13 for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth; he shall judge the world in righteousness, and the people with his truth.
(97 in KJV) For David, when his land is established.
1 The Lord reigns, let the earth exult, let many islands rejoice.
Cloud, and darkness are round about him; righteousness and judgment are the establishment of his throne.
Fire shall go before him, and burn up his enemies round about.
His lightnings appeared to the world; the earth saw, and trembled.
The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
The heavens have declared his righteousness, and all the people have seen his glory.
Let all that worship graven images be ashamed, who boast of their idols; Heb 1. 6. worship him, all you° his angels.
Sion heard and rejoiced; and the daughters of Judea exulted, because of your judgments, O Lord.
For you are Lord most high over all the earth; you are greatly exalted above all gods.
10 You° that love the Lord, hate evil; the Lord preserves the souls of his saints; he shall deliver them from the hand of sinners.
11 Light is sprung up for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, you° righteous; and give thanks for a remembrance of his holiness.
(98 in KJV) A Psalm of David.
1 Sing to the Lord a new song; for the Lord has wrought wonderful works, his right hand, and his holy arm, have wrought salvation for him.
The Lord has made known his salvation, he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered his mercy to Jacob, and his truth to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
Shout to God, all the earth; sing, and exult, and sing psalms.
Sing to the Lord with a harp, with a harp, and the voice of a psalm.
With trumpets of metal, and the sound of a trumpet of horn make a joyful noise to the Lord before the king.
Let the sea be moved, and the fullness of it; the world, and they that dwell in it.
The rivers shall clap their hands together; the mountains shall exult. * Alex. + before the Lord, for he comes.
For he is come to judge the earth; he shall judge the world in righteousness, and the nations in uprightness.
(99 in KJV) A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord reigns; —let the people rage; it is he that sits upon the cherubs, let the earth be moved.
The Lord is great in Sion, and is high over all the people.
Let them give thanks to your great name; for it is terrible and holy.
And the king's honor loves judgment; you have prepared * Gr. equities. equity, you have wrought judgment and justice in Jacob.
Exalt you° the Lord our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the Lord, and he heard them.
He spoke to them in a pillar of cloud; they kept his testimonies, and the ordinances which he gave them.
O Lord our God, you heard them; O God, you became propitious to them, though you did take vengeance on all their devices.
Exalt you° the Lord our God, and worship at his holy mountain; for the Lord our God is holy.
(100 in KJV) A Psalm for Thanksgiving.
1 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness; come before his presence with exultation.
Know that the Lord he is God; he made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with hymns; give thanks to him, praise his name.
For the Lord is good, his mercy is for ever; and his truth endures to generation and generation.
(101 in KJV) A Psalm of David.
1 I will sing to you, O Lord, of mercy and judgment; I will sing a psalm,
and I will be wise in a blameless way. When will you come to me? I walked in the innocence of my heart, in the midst of my house.
I have not set before my eyes any unlawful ting; I have hated transgressors.
A perverse heart has not cleaved to me; I have not known an evil man, forasmuch as he turns away from me.
Him that privily speaks against his neighbor, him have I driven from me: he that is proud in look and insatiable in heart, —with him I have not eaten.
My eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walked in a perfect way, the same ministered to me.
The proud doer lived not in the midst of my house; the unjust speaker prospered not in my sight.
Early did I kill all the sinners of the land, that I might destroy out of the city of the Lord all that work iniquity.
(102 in KJV) A Prayer for the Poor; when he is deeply afflicted, and pours out his supplication before the Lord.
1 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come to you.
Turn not away your face from me: in the day when I am afflicted, incline your ear to me: in the day when I shall call upon you, speedily hear me.
For my days have vanished like smoke, and my bones have been parched like a stick.
I am blighted like grass, and my heart is dried up; for I have forgotten to eat my bread.
By reason of the voice of my groaning, my bone has cleaved to my flesh.
I have become like a pelican of the wilderness;
I have become like an owl in a ruined house. I have watched, and am become as a sparrow dwelling alone on a roof.
All the day long my enemies have reproached me; and they that praised me have sworn against me.
For I have eaten ashes as it were bread, and mingled my drink with weeping;
10 because of your anger and your wrath: for you have lifted me up, and dashed me down.
11 My days have declined like a shadow; and I am withered like grass.
12 But you, Lord, endure for ever, and your memorial to generation and generation.
13 You shall arise, and have mercy upon Sion: for it is time to have mercy upon her, for the set time is come.
14 For your servants have taken pleasure in her stones, and they shall pity her dust.
15 So the nations shall fear your name, O Lord, and all kings your glory.
16 For the Lord shall build up Sion, * Or, then shall be. and shall appear in his glory.
17 He has had regard to the prayer of the lowly, and has not despised their petition.
18 Let this be written for another generation; and the people that shall be created shall praise the Lord.
19 For he has looked out from the height of his sanctuary; the Lord looked upon the earth from heaven;
20 to hear the groaning of the fettered ones, to loosen the sons of the slain;
21 to proclaim the name of the Lord in Sion, and his praise in Jerusalem;
22 when the people are gathered together, and the kings, to serve the Lord.
23 He answered him in the way of his strength: tell me the fewness of my days.
24 Take me not away in the midst of my days: your years are Heb 1. 11,13 through all generations.
25 In the Gr. plural. beginning you, O Lord, did lay the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands.
26 They shall perish, but you remain: and they all shall wax old as a garment; and as a vesture shall you fold them, and they shall be changed.
27 But you are the same, and your years shall not fail.
28 The children of your servants shall dwell securely, and their seed shall Or, be directed aright. prosper for ever.
(103 in KJV) A Psalm of David.
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his praises:
who forgives all your transgressions, who heals all your diseases;
who redeems your life from corruption; who crowns you with mercy and compassion;
who satisfies your desire with good things: so that your youth shall be renewed like that of the eagle.
The Lord executes mercy and judgment for all that are injured.
He made known his ways to Moses, his will to the children of Israel.
The Lord is compassionate and pitiful, longsuffering, and full of mercy.
He will not be always angry; neither will he be wrathful for ever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor recompensed us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, the Lord has so increased his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father pities his children, the Lord pities them that fear him.
14 For he knows our frame: remember that we are dust.
15  As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower of the field, so shall he flourish.
16 For the wind passes over it, and it shall not be; and it shall know its place no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from generation to generation upon them that fear him, and his righteousness to children's children;
18 to them that keep his covenant, and remember his commandments to do them.
19 The Lord has prepared his throne in the heaven; and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the Lord, all you° his angels, mighty in strength, who perform his bidding, ready to listen to the voice of his words.
21 Bless the Lord, all you° his hosts; you° ministers of his that do his will.
22 Bless the Lord, all his works, in every place of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul.
(104 in KJV) A Psalm of David.
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you have clothed yourself with praise and honor:
who do robe yourself with light as with a garment; spreading out the heaven as a curtain.
Who covers his chambers with waters; who makes the clouds his chariot; who walks on the wings of the wind.
Heb 1. 7. Who makes his angels spirits, and his ministers a flaming fire.
Who establishes the earth on her sure foundation: it shall not be moved for ever.
The deep, as it were a garment, is his covering: the waters shall stand * Or, above. on the hills.
At your rebuke they shall flee; at the voice of your thunder they shall be alarmed.
They go up to the mountains, and down to the plains, to the place which you have founded for them.
You have set a bound which they shall not pass, neither shall they turn again to cover the earth.
10 He sends forth his fountains among the valleys: the waters shall run between the mountains.
11 They shall give drink to all the wild beasts of the field: the wild asses shall take of them to quench their thirst.
12 By them shall the birds of the sky lodge: they shall utter a voice out of the midst of the rocks.
13 He waters the mountains from his chambers: the earth shall be satisfied with the fruit of your works.
14 He makes grass to grow for the cattle, and green herb for the service of men, to bring bread out of the earth;
15 and wine makes glad the heart of man, to make his face cheerful with oil: and bread strengthens man's heart.
16 The trees of the plain shall be full of sap; even the cedars of Libanus which he has planted.
17 There the sparrows will build their nests; and the house of the heron takes the lead among them.
18 The high mountains are a refuge for the stags, and the rock for the rabbits.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knows his going down.
20 You did make darkness, and it was night; in it all the wild beasts of the forest will be abroad:
21  even young lions roaring for prey, and to seek meat for themselves from God.
22 The sun arises, and they shall be gathered together, and shall lie down in their dens.
23 Man shall go forth to his work, and to his labor till evening.
24 How great are your works, O Lord! in wisdom have you wrought them all: the earth is filled with your creation.
25  So is this great and wide sea: there are things creeping innumerable, small animals and great.
26 There go the ships; and this dragon whom you have made to play in it.
27 All wait upon you, to give them their food in due season.
28 When you have given it them, they will gather it; and when you have opened your hand, they shall all be filled with good.
29 But when you have turned away your face, they shall be troubled: you will take away their breath, and they shall fail, and return to their dust.
30 You shall send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created; and you shall renew the face of the earth.
31 Let the glory of the Lord be for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works;
32 who looks upon the earth, and makes it tremble; who touches the mountains, and they smoke.
33 I will sing to the Lord while I live; I will sing praise to my God while I exist.
34 Let my meditation be sweet to him: and I will rejoice in the Lord.
35 Let the sinners fail from off the earth, and transgressors, so that they shall be no more. Bless the Lord, O my soul.
(105 in KJV) Alleluia.
1 Give thanks to the Lord, and call upon his name; declare his works among the heathen.
Sing to him, yes, sing praises to him: tell forth all his wonderful works.
Glory in his holy name: let the heart of them that seek the Lord rejoice.
Seek you° the Lord, and be strengthened; seek his face continually.
Remember his wonderful works that he has done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
you° seed of Abraam, his servants, you° children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
He is the Lord our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
He has remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded for a thousand generation:
which he established as a covenant to Abraam, and he remembered his oath to Isaac.
10 And he established it to Jacob for an ordinance, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant;
11 saying To you will I give the land of Chanaan, the line of your inheritance:
12 when they were few in number, very few, and sojourners in it.
13 And they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people.
14 He suffered no man to wrong them; and he rebuked kings for their sakes:
15  saying, Touch not my anointed ones; and do my prophets no harm.
16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land; he broke the whole support of bread.
17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a slave.
18 They * Gr. humbled. hurt his feet with fetters; Or, his body, see Heb. his soul passed into iron,
19 until the time that his cause came on; the word of the Lord tried him as fire.
20 The king sent and loosed him; even the prince of the people, and let him go free.
21 He made him Lord over his house, and ruler of all his substance;
22 to chastise his rulers at his pleasure, and to teach his elders wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt, and Jacob sojourned in the land of Cham.
24 And he increased his people greatly, and made them stronger than their enemies.
25 And he turned their heart to hate his people, to deal craftily with his servants.
26 He sent fort Moses his servant, and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27 He established among them his signs, and his wonders in the land of Cham.
28 He sent forth darkness, and made it dark; yet they Gr. embittered. rebelled against his words.
29 He turned their waters into blood, and killed their fish.
30 Their land produced frogs abundantly, in the chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke, and the dog-fly came, and lice in all their coasts.
32 He turned their rain into hail, and sent flaming fire in their land.
33 And he struck their vines and their fig trees; and broke every tree of their coast.
34 He spoke, and the locust came, and caterpillars innumerable,
35 and devoured all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of the ground.
36 He struck also every firstborn of their land, the first fruits of all their labor.
37 And he brought them out with silver and gold; and there was not a feeble one among their tribes.
38 Egypt rejoiced at their departing; for the fear of them fell upon them.
39 He spread out a cloud for a covering to them, and fire to give them light by night.
40 They asked, and the quail came, and he satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
41 He clave the rock, and the waters flowed, rivers ran in dry places.
42 For he remembered his holy word, which he promised to Abraam his servant.
43 And he brought out his people with exultation, and his chosen with joy;
44 and gave them the lands of the heathen; and they inherited the labors of the people;
45 that they might keep his ordinances, and diligently seek his law.
(106 in KJV) Alleluia.
1 Give thanks to the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.
Who shall tell the mighty acts of the Lord? who shall cause all his praises to be heard?
Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do righteousness at all times.
Remember us, O Lord, with the favor you have to your people: visit us with your salvation;
that we may behold the good of your elect, that we may rejoice in the gladness of your nation, that we may glory with your inheritance.
We have sinned with our fathers, we have transgressed, we have done unrighteously.
Our fathers in Egypt understood not your wonders, and remembered not the multitude of your mercy; but provoked him as they went up by the Red Sea.
Yet he saved them for his name's sake, that he might cause his mighty power to be known.
And he rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up: so he led them through the deep as through the wilderness.
10 And he saved them out of the hand of them that hated them, and redeemed them out of the hand of the enemy.
11 The water covered those that oppressed them: there was not one of them left.
12 Then they believed his words, and celebrated his praise.
13 They made haste, they forgot his works; they waited not for his counsel.
14 And they lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the dry land.
15 And he gave them their request, and sent fullness into their souls.
16 They provoked Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the holy one of the Lord.
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and closed upon the congregation of Abiron.
18 And a fire was kindled in their congregation, and a flame burnt up the sinners.
19 And they made a calf in Choreb, and worshipped the graven image,
20 and they changed their glory into the similitude of a calf that feeds on grass.
21 They forgot God that saved them, who had wrought great deeds in Egypt;
22 wondrous works in the land of Cham, and terrible things at the Red Sea.
23 So he said that he would have destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn him away from the fierceness of his anger, so that he should not destroy them.
24 Moreover they set at nothing the desirable land, and believed not his word.
25 And they murmured in their tents: they listened not to the voice of the Lord.
26 So he lifted up his hand against them, to cast them down in the wilderness;
27 and to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries.
28 They were joined also to Beelphegor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. And they provoked him with their devices;
29 and destruction, was multiplied among them.
30 Then Phinees stood up, and made atonement: and the plague ceased.
31 And it was counted to him for righteousness, to all generations for ever.
32 They provoked him also at the water of Strife, and Moses was hurt for their sakes;
33 for they provoked his spirit, and he * Or, gave commandment. spoke unadvisedly with his lips.
34 They destroyed not the nations which the Lord told them to destroy;
35 but were mingled with the heathen, and learned their works.
36 And they served their graven images; and it became an offense to them.
37 And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to devils,

41 And he delivered them into the hands of their enemies; and they that hated them ruled over them.
42 Ands their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought down under their hands.
43 Many a time he delivered them; but they provoked him by their counsel, and they were brought low by their iniquities.
44 You° the Lord looked upon their affliction, when he heard their petition.
