THE OLD TESTAMENT
GREEK / ENGLISH
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· συνέσεως τῷ Δαυΐδ· 2 ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν Δωὴκ τὸν Ἰδουμαῖον καὶ ἀναγγεῖλαι τῷ Σαοὺλ καὶ εἰπεῖν αὐτῷ· ἦλθε Δαυΐδ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Ἀβιμέλεχ.
3 ΤΙ ΕΓΚΑΥΧᾼ ἐν κακίᾳ, ὁ δυνατός, ἀνομίαν ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν;
4 ἀδικίαν ἐλογίσατο ἡ γλῶσσά σου· ὡσεὶ ξυρὸν ἠκονημένον ἐποίησας δόλον.
5 ἠγάπησας κακίαν ὑπὲρ ἀγαθωσύνην, ἀδικίαν ὑπὲρ τὸ λαλῆσαι δικαιοσύνην. (διάψαλμα).
6 ἠγάπησας πάντα τὰ ῥήματα καταποντισμοῦ, γλῶσσαν δολίαν.
7 διὰ τοῦτο ὁ Θεὸς καθέλοι σε εἰς τέλος· ἐκτίλαι σε καὶ μεταναστεύσαι σε ἀπὸ σκηνώματός σου καὶ τὸ ῥίζωμά σου ἐκ γῆς ζώντων. (διάψαλμα).
8 ὄψονται δίκαιοι καὶ φοβηθήσονται καὶ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν γελάσονται καὶ ἐροῦσιν·
9 ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος, ὃς οὐκ ἔθετο τὸν Θεὸν βοηθὸν αὐτοῦ, ἀλλ᾿ ἐπήλπισεν ἐπὶ τὸ πλῆθος τοῦ πλούτου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνεδυναμώθη ἐπὶ τῇ ματαιότητι αὐτοῦ.
10 ἐγὼ δὲ ὡσεὶ ἐλαία κατάκαρπος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ· ἤλπισα ἐπὶ τὸ ἔλεος τοῦ Θεοῦ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος.
11 ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, ὅτι ἐποίησας, καὶ ὑπομενῶ τὸ ὄνομά σου, ὅτι χρηστὸν ἐναντίον τῶν ὁσίων σου.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ὑπὲρ μαελέθ· συνέσεως τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΕΙΠΕΝ ἄφρων ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ· Οὐκ ἔστι Θεός. διεφθάρησαν καὶ ἐβδελύχθησαν ἐν ἀνομίαις, οὐκ ἔστι ποιῶν ἀγαθόν.
3 ὁ Θεὸς ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ διέκυψεν ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν ἀνθρώπων τοῦ ἰδεῖν εἰ ἔστι συνιὼν ἢ ἐκζητῶν τὸν Θεόν.
4 πάντες ἐξέκλιναν, ἅμα ἠχρειώθησαν, οὐκ ἔστι ποιῶν ἀγαθόν, οὐκ ἔστιν ἕως ἑνός.
5 οὐχί γνώσονται πάντες οἱ ἐργαζόμενοι τὴν ἀνομίαν; οἱ κατεσθίοντες τὸν λαόν μου ἐν βρώσει ἄρτου τὸν Κύριον οὐκ ἐπεκαλέσαντο.
6 ἐκεῖ ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον, οὗ οὐκ ἦν φόβος, ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς διεσπόρπισεν ὀστᾶ ἀνθρωπαρέσκων· κατῃσχύνθησαν, ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς ἐξουδένωσεν αὐτούς.
7 τίς δώσει ἐκ Σιὼν τὸ σωτήριον τοῦ Ἰσραήλ; ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέψαι τὸν Θεὸν τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ ἀγαλλιάσεται Ἰακὼβ καὶ εὐφρανθήσεται Ἰσραήλ.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ἐν ὕμνοις· συνέσεως τῷ Δαυΐδ 2 ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν τοὺς Ζιφαίους καὶ εἰπεῖν τῷ Σαούλ· οὐκ ἰδοὺ Δαυΐδ κέκρυπται παρ᾿ ἡμῖν;
3 Ο ΘΕΟΣ, ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου σῶσόν με καὶ ἐν τῇ δυνάμει σου κρῖνόν με.
4 ὁ Θεός, εἰσάκουσον τῆς προσευχῆς μου, ἐνώτισαι τὰ ῥήματα τοῦ στόματός μου.
5 ὅτι ἀλλότριοι ἐπανέστησαν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ καὶ κραταιοὶ ἐζήτησαν τὴν ψυχήν μου καὶ οὐ προέθεντο τὸν Θεὸν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν. (διάψαλμα).
6 ἰδοὺ γὰρ ὁ Θεὸς βοηθεῖ μοι, καὶ ὁ Κύριος ἀντιλήπτωρ τῆς ψυχῆς μου.
7 ἀποστρέψει τὰ κακὰ τοῖς ἐχθροῖς μου· ἐν τῇ ἀληθείᾳ σου ἐξολόθρευσον αὐτούς.
8 ἑκουσίως θύσω σοι, ἐξομολογήσομαι τῷ ὀνόματί σου, Κύριε, ὅτι ἀγαθόν·
9 ὅτι ἐκ πάσης θλίψεως ἐῤῥύσω με, καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐχθροῖς μου ἐπεῖδεν ὁ ὀφθαλμός μου.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ἐν ὕμνοις· συνέσεως τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΕΝΩΤΙΣΑΙ, ὁ Θεός, τὴν προσευχήν μου καὶ μὴ ὑπερίδῃς τὴν δέησίν μου,
3 πρόσχες μοι καὶ εἰσάκουσόν μου. ἐλυπήθην ἐν τῇ ἀδολεσχίᾳ μου καὶ ἐταράχθην
4 ἀπὸ φωνῆς ἐχθροῦ καὶ ἀπὸ θλίψεως ἁμαρτωλοῦ, ὅτι ἐξέκλιναν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ἀνομίαν καὶ ἐν ὀργῇ ἐνεκότουν μοι.
5 ἡ καρδία μου ἐταράχθη ἐν ἐμοί, καὶ δειλία θανάτου ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ·
6 φόβος καὶ τρόμος ἦλθεν ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ, καὶ ἐκάλυψέ με σκότος.
7 καὶ εἶπα· τίς δώσει μοι πτέρυγας ὡσεὶ περιστερᾶς καὶ πετασθήσομαι καὶ καταπαύσω;
8 ἰδοὺ ἐμάκρυνα φυγαδεύων καὶ ηὐλίσθην ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ. (διάψαλμα).
9 προσεδεχόμην τὸν σῴζοντά με, ἀπὸ ὀλιγοψυχίας καὶ ἀπὸ καταιγίδος.
10 καταπόντισον, Κύριε, καὶ καταδίελε τὰς γλώσσας αὐτῶν, ὅτι εἶδον ἀνομίαν καὶ ἀντιλογίαν ἐν τῇ πόλει.
11 ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς κυκλώσει αὐτὴν ἐπὶ τὰ τείχη αὐτῆς, καὶ ἀνομία καὶ κόπος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς
12 καὶ ἀδικία, καὶ οὐκ ἐξέλιπεν ἐκ τῶν πλατειῶν αὐτῆς τόκος καὶ δόλος.
13 ὅτι εἰ ἐχθρὸς ὠνείδισέ με, ὑπήνεγκα ἄν, καὶ εἰ ὁ μισῶν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ἐμεγαλοῤῥημόνησεν, ἐκρύβην ἂν ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
14 σὺ δέ, ἄνθρωπε ἰσόψυχε, ἡγεμών μου καὶ γνωστέ μου,
15 ὃς ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἐγλύκανάς μοι ἐδέσματα, ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐπορεύθην ἐν ὁμονοίᾳ.
16 ἐλθέτω δὴ θάνατος ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς, καὶ καταβήτωσαν εἰς ᾅδου ζῶντες· ὅτι πονηρία ἐν ταῖς παροικίαις αὐτῶν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν.
17 ἐγὼ πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν ἐκέκραξα, καὶ ὁ Κύριος εἰσήκουσέ μου.
18 ἑσπέρας καὶ πρωΐ καὶ μεσημβρίας διηγήσομαι καὶ ἀπαγγελῶ, καὶ εἰσακούσεται τῆς φωνῆς μου.
19 λυτρώσεται ἐν εἰρήνῃ τὴν ψυχήν μου ἀπὸ τῶν ἐγγιζόντων μοι, ὅτι ἐν πολλοῖς ἦσαν σὺν ἐμοί.
20 εἰσακούσεται ὁ Θεὸς καὶ ταπεινώσει αὐτοὺς ὁ ὑπάρχων πρὸ τῶν αἰώνων. (διάψαλμα). οὐ γάρ ἐστιν αὐτοῖς ἀντάλλαγμα, ὅτι οὐκ ἐφοβήθησαν τὸν Θεόν.
21 ἐξέτεινε τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ἀποδιδόναι· ἐβεβήλωσαν τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ.
22 διεμερίσθησαν ἀπὸ ὀργῆς τοῦ προσώπου αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἤγγισαν αἱ καρδίαι αὐτῶν· ἡπαλύνθησαν οἱ λόγοι αὐτοῦ ὑπὲρ ἔλαιον, καὶ αὐτοί εἰσι βολίδες.
23 ἐπίῤῥιψον ἐπὶ Κύριον τὴν μέριμνάν σου, καὶ αὐτός σε διαθρέψει· οὐ δώσει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα σάλον τῷ δικαίῳ.
24 σὺ δέ, ὁ Θεός, κατάξεις αὐτοὺς εἰς φρέαρ διαφθορᾶς· ἄνδρες αἱμάτων καὶ δολιότητος οὐ μὴ ἡμισεύσωσι τὰς ἡμέρας αὐτῶν, ἐγὼ δέ, Κύριε, ἐλπιῶ ἐπὶ σέ.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ὑπὲρ τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ ἀπὸ τῶν ἁγίων μεμακρυμμένου· τῷ Δαυΐδ εἰς στηλογραφίαν, ὁπότε ἐκράτησαν αὐτὸν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐν Γέθ.
2 ΕΛΕΗΣΟΝ με, ὁ Θεός, ὅτι κατεπάτησέ με ἄνθρωπος, ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν πολεμῶν ἔθλιψέ με.
3 κατεπάτησάν με οἱ ἐχθροί μου ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν, ὅτι πολλοὶ οἱ πολεμοῦντες με ἀπὸ ὕψους.
4 ἡμέρας οὐ φοβηθήσομαι, ἐγὼ δὲ ἐλπιῶ ἐπὶ σέ.
5 ἐν τῷ Θεῷ ἐπαινέσω τοὺς λόγους μου, ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ ἤλπισα, οὐ φοβηθήσομαι τί ποιήσει μοι σάρξ.
6 ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν τοὺς λόγους μου ἐβδελύσσοντο, κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ πάντες οἱ διαλογισμοὶ αὐτῶν εἰς κακόν.
7 παροικήσουσι καὶ κατακρύψουσιν· αὐτοὶ τὴν πτέρναν μου φυλάξουσι, καθάπερ ὑπέμειναν τῇ ψυχῇ μου.
8 ὑπὲρ τοῦ μηθενὸς σώσεις αὐτούς, ἐν ὀργῇ λαοὺς κατάξεις. ὁ Θεός,
9 τὴν ζωήν μου ἐξήγγειλά σοι, ἔθου τὰ δάκρυά μου ἐνώπιόν σου ὡς καὶ ἐν τῇ ἐπαγγελίᾳ σου.
10 ἐπιστρέψουσιν οἱ ἐχθροί μου εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω, ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ ἐπικαλέσωμαί σε· ἰδοὺ ἔγνων ὅτι Θεός μου εἶ σύ.
11 ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ αἰνέσω ῥῆμα, ἐπὶ τῷ Κυρίῳ αἰνέσω λόγον.
12 ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ ἤλπισα, οὐ φοβηθήσομαι τί ποιήσει μοι ἄνθρωπος.
13 ἐν ἐμοί, ὁ Θεός, εὐχαί, ἃς ἀποδώσω αἰνέσεώς σου,
14 ὅτι ἐῤῥύσω τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ θανάτου καὶ τοὺς πόδας μου ἐξ ὀλισθήματος· εὐαρεστήσω ἐνώπιον Κυρίου ἐν φωτὶ ζώντων.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· μὴ διαφθείρῃς· τῷ Δαυΐδ εἰς στηλογραφίαν ἐν τῷ αὐτὸν ἀποδιδράσκειν ἀπὸ προσώπου Σαοὺλ εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον.
2 ΕΛΕΗΣΟΝ με, ὁ Θεός, ἐλέησόν με, ὅτι ἐπὶ σοὶ πέποιθεν ἡ ψυχή μου καὶ ἐν τῇ σκιᾷ τῶν πτερύγων σου ἐλπιῶ, ἕως οὗ παρέλθῃ ἡ ἀνομία.
3 κεκράξομαι πρὸς τὸν Θεὸν τὸν Ὕψιστον, τὸν Θεὸν τὸν εὐεργετήσαντά με.
4 ἐξαπέστειλεν ἐξ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσωσέ με, ἔδωκεν εἰς ὄνειδος τοὺς καταπατοῦντάς με. (διάψαλμα). ἐξαπέστειλεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν ἀλήθειαν αὐτοῦ
5 καὶ ἐῤῥύσατο τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ μέσου σκύμνων. ἐκοιμήθην τεταραγμένος· υἱοὶ ἀνθρώπων, οἱ ὀδόντες αὐτῶν ὅπλα καὶ βέλη, καὶ ἡ γλῶσσα αὐτῶν μάχαιρα ὀξεῖα.
6 ὑψώθητι ἐπὶ τοὺς οὐρανούς, ὁ Θεός, καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ἡ δόξα σου.
7 παγίδα ἡτοίμασαν τοῖς ποσί μου καὶ κατέκαμψαν τὴν ψυχήν μου· ὤρυξαν πρὸ προσώπου μου βόθρον καὶ ἐνέπεσαν εἰς αὐτόν. (διάψαλμα).
8 ἑτοίμη ἡ καρδία μου, ὁ Θεός, ἑτοίμη ἡ καρδία μου, ᾄσομαι καὶ ψαλῶ ἐν τῇ δόξῃ μου.
9 ἐξεγέρθητι, ἡ δόξα μου· ἐξεγέρθητι, ψαλτήριον καὶ κιθάρα· ἐξεγερθήσομαι ὄρθρου.
10 ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι ἐν λαοῖς, Κύριε, ψαλῶ σοι ἐν ἔθνεσι,
11 ὅτι ἐμεγαλύνθη ἕως τῶν οὐρανῶν τὸ ἔλεός σου καὶ ἕως τῶν νεφελῶν ἡ ἀλήθειά σου.
12 ὑψώθητι ἐπὶ τοὺς οὐρανούς, ὁ Θεός, καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ἡ δόξα σου.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· μὴ διαφθείρῃς· τῷ Δαυΐδ εἰς στηλογραφίαν.
2 ΕΙ ΑΛΗΘΩΣ ἄρα δικαιοσύνην λαλεῖτε; εὐθείας κρίνετε οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων;
3 καὶ γὰρ ἐν καρδίᾳ ἀνομίαν ἐργάζεσθε ἐν τῇ γῇ, ἀδικίαν αἱ χεῖρες ὑμῶν συμπλέκουσιν.
4 ἀπηλλοτριώθησαν οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἀπὸ μήτρας, ἐπλανήθησαν ἀπὸ γαστρός, ἐλάλησαν ψευδῆ.
5 θυμὸς αὐτοῖς κατὰ τὴν ὁμοίωσιν τοῦ ὄφεως, ὡσεὶ ἀσπίδος κωφῆς καὶ βυούσης τὰ ὦτα αὐτῆς,
6 ἥτις οὐκ εἰσακούσεται φωνῆς ἐπᾳδόντων, φαρμάκου τε φαρμακευομένου παρὰ σοφοῦ.
7 ὁ Θεὸς συντρίψει τοὺς ὀδόντας αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν, τὰς μύλας τῶν λεόντων συνέθλασεν ὁ Κύριος·
8 ἐξουδενωθήσονται ὡσεὶ ὕδωρ διαπορευόμενον· ἐκτενεῖ τὸ τόξον αὐτοῦ ἕως οὗ ἀσθενήσουσιν.
9 ὡσεὶ κηρὸς τακεὶς ἀνταναιρεθήσονται· ἔπεσε πῦρ ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς, καὶ οὐκ εἶδον τὸν ἥλιον.
10 πρὸ τοῦ συνιέναι τὰς ἀκάνθας αὐτῶν τὴν ῥάμνον, ὡσεὶ ζῶντας, ὡσεὶ ἐν ὀργῇ καταπίεται αὐτούς.
11 εὐφρανθήσεται δίκαιος, ὅταν ἴδῃ ἐκδίκησιν· τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ νίψεται ἐν τῷ αἵματι τοῦ ἁμαρτωλοῦ.
12 καὶ ἐρεῖ ἄνθρωπος· εἰ ἄρα ἐστὶ καρπὸς τῷ δικαίῳ, ἄρα ἐστὶν ὁ Θεὸς κρίνων αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ γῇ.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· μὴ διαφθείρῃς· τῷ Δαυΐδ εἰς στηλογραφίαν, ὁπότε ἀπέστειλε Σαοὺλ καὶ ἐφύλαξε τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ τοῦ θανατῶσαι αὐτόν.
2 ΕΞΕΛΟΥ με ἐκ τῶν ἐχθρῶν μου, ὁ Θεός, καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἐπανισταμένων ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ λύτρωσαί με·
3 ῥῦσαί με ἐκ τῶν ἐργαζομένων τὴν ἀνομίαν καὶ ἐξ ἀνδρῶν αἱμάτων σῶσόν με.
4 ὅτι ἰδοὺ ἐθήρευσαν τὴν ψυχήν μου, ἐπέθεντο ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ κραταιοί. οὔτε ἡ ἀνομία μου οὔτε ἡ ἁμαρτία μου, Κύριε·
5 ἄνευ ἀνομίας ἔδραμον καὶ κατεύθυνα· ἐξεγέρθητι εἰς συνάντησίν μου καὶ ἴδε.
6 καὶ σύ, Κύριε, ὁ Θεὸς τῶν δυνάμεων, ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, πρόσχες τοῦ ἐπισκέψασθαι πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, μὴ οἰκτειρήσῃς πάντας τοὺς ἐργαζομένους τὴν ἀνομίαν. (διάψαλμα).
7 ἐπιστρέψουσιν εἰς ἑσπέραν καὶ λιμώξουσιν ὡς κύων καὶ κυκλώσουσι πόλιν.
8 ἰδοὺ ἀποφθέγξονται ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν, καὶ ῥομφαία ἐν τοῖς χείλεσιν αὐτῶν, ὅτι τίς ἤκουσε;
9 καὶ σύ, Κύριε, ἐκγελάσῃ αὐτούς, ἐξουδενώσεις πάντα τὰ ἔθνη.
10 τὸ κράτος μου, πρὸς σὲ φυλάξω, ὅτι σύ, ὁ Θεός, ἀντιλήπτωρ μου εἶ.
11 ὁ Θεός μου, τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ προφθάσει με· ὁ Θεός μου δείξει μοι ἐν τοῖς ἐχθροῖς μου.
12 μὴ ἀποκτείνῃς αὐτούς, μήποτε ἐπιλάθωνται τοῦ νόμου σου· διασκόρπισον αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ δυνάμει σου καὶ κατάγαγε αὐτούς, ὁ ὑπερασπιστής μου, Κύριε.
13 ἁμαρτία στόματος αὐτῶν, λόγος χειλέων αὐτῶν, καὶ συλληφθήτωσαν ἐν τῇ ὑπερηφανίᾳ αὐτῶν· καὶ ἐξ ἀρᾶς καὶ ψεύδους διαγγελήσονται ἐν συντελείᾳ,
14 ἐν ὀργῇ συντελείας, καὶ οὐ μὴ ὑπάρξουσι· καὶ γνώσονται, ὅτι Θεὸς δεσπόζει τοῦ Ἰακὼβ τῶν περάτων τῆς γῆς. (διάψαλμα).
15 ἐπιστρέψουσιν εἰς ἑσπέραν, καὶ λιμώξουσιν ὡς κύων καὶ κυκλώσουσι πόλιν.
16 αὐτοὶ διασκορπισθήσονται τοῦ φαγεῖν· ἐὰν δὲ μὴ χορτασθῶσι, καὶ γογγύσουσιν.
17 ἐγὼ δὲ ᾄσομαι τῇ δυνάμει σου καὶ ἀγαλλιάσομαι τὸ πρωΐ τὸ ἔλεός σου, ὅτι ἐγενήθης ἀντιλήπτωρ μου καὶ καταφυγή μου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ θλίψεώς μου.
18 βοηθός μου εἶ, σοὶ ψαλῶ, ὅτι σύ, ὁ Θεός, ἀντιλήπτωρ μου εἶ, ὁ Θεός μου, τὸ ἔλεός μου.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· τοῖς ἀλλοιωθησομένοις ἔτι, εἰς στηλογραφίαν τῷ Δαυΐδ, εἰς διδαχήν, 2 ὁπότε ἐνεπύρισε τὴν Μεσοποταμίαν Συρίας καὶ τὴν Συρίαν Σοβά, καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Ἰωάβ, καὶ ἐπάταξε τὴν φάραγγα τῶν ἁλῶν, δώδεκα χιλιάδας.
3 Ο ΘΕΟΣ, ἀπώσω ἡμᾶς καὶ καθεῖλες ἡμᾶς, ὠργίσθης καὶ οἰκτείρησας ἡμᾶς.
4 συνέσεισας τὴν γῆν καὶ συνετάραξας αὐτήν· ἴασαι τὰ συντρίμματα αὐτῆς ὅτι ἐσαλεύθη.
5 ἔδειξας τῷ λαῷ σου σκληρά, ἐπότισας ἡμᾶς οἶνον κατανύξεως.
6 ἔδωκας τοῖς φοβουμένοις σε σημείωσιν τοῦ φυγεῖν ἀπὸ προσώπου τόξου. (διάψαλμα).
7 ὅπως ἂν ῥυσθῶσιν οἱ ἀγαπητοί σου, σῶσον τῇ δεξιᾷ σου καὶ ἐπάκουσόν μου.
8 ὁ Θεὸς ἐλάλησεν ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ αὐτοῦ· ἀγαλλιάσομαι καὶ διαμεριῶ Σίκιμα καὶ τὴν κοιλάδα τῶν σκηνῶν διαμετρήσω.
9 ἐμός ἐστι Γαλαάδ, καὶ ἐμός ἐστι Μανασσῆ, καὶ Ἐφραὶμ κραταίωσις τῆς κεφαλῆς μου, Ἰούδας βασιλεύς μου·
10 Μωὰβ λέβης τῆς ἐλπίδος μου, ἐπὶ τὴν Ἰδουμαίαν ἐκτενῶ τὸ ὑπόδημά μου, ἐμοὶ ἀλλόφυλοι ὑπετάγησαν.
11 τίς ἀπάξει με εἰς πόλιν περιοχῆς; ἢ τίς ὁδηγήσει με ἕως τῆς Ἰδουμαίας;
12 οὐχὶ σύ, ὁ Θεός, ὁ ἀπωσάμενος ἡμᾶς; καὶ οὐκ ἐξελεύσῃ, ὁ Θεός, ἐν ταῖς δυνάμεσιν ἡμῶν;
13 δὸς ἡμῖν βοήθειαν ἐκ θλίψεως, καὶ ματαία σωτηρία ἀνθρώπου.
14 ἐν τῷ Θεῷ ποιήσωμεν δύναμιν, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐξουδενώσει τοὺς θλίβοντας ἡμᾶς.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ἐν ὕμνοις· τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΕΙΣΑΚΟΥΣΟΝ, ὁ Θεός, τῆς δεήσεώς μου, πρόσχες τῇ προσευχῇ μου.
3 ἀπὸ τῶν περάτων τῆς γῆς πρὸς σὲ ἐκέκραξα ἐν τῷ ἀκηδιάσαι τὴν καρδίαν μου· ἐν πέτρᾳ ὕψωσάς με, ὡδήγησάς με,
4 ὅτι ἐγενήθης ἐλπίς μου, πύργος ἰσχύος ἀπὸ προσώπου ἐχθροῦ.
5 παροικήσω ἐν τῷ σκηνώματί σου εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας, σκεπασθήσομαι ἐν σκέπει τῶν πτερύγων σου. (διάψαλμα).
6 ὅτι σύ, ὁ Θεός, εἰσήκουσας τῶν εὐχῶν μου, ἔδωκας κληρονομίαν τοῖς φοβουμένοις τὸ ὄνομά σου.
7 ἡμέρας ἐφ᾿ ἡμέρας τοῦ βασιλέως προσθήσεις, τὰ ἔτη αὐτοῦ ἕως ἡμέρας γενεᾶς καὶ γενεᾶς.
8 διαμενεῖ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ· ἔλεος καὶ ἀλήθειαν αὐτοῦ τίς ἐκζητήσει;
9 οὕτως ψαλῶ τῷ ὀνόματί σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος τοῦ ἀποδοῦναί με τὰς εὐχάς μου ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ὑπὲρ Ἰδιθούν· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΟΥΧΙ τῷ Θεῷ ὑποταγήσεται ἡ ψυχή μου; παρ᾿ αὐτῷ γὰρ τὸ σωτήριόν μου·
3 καὶ γὰρ αὐτὸς Θεός μου καὶ σωτήρ μου, καὶ ἀντιλήπτωρ μου, οὐ μὴ σαλευθῶ ἐπὶ πλεῖον.
4 ἕως πότε ἐπιτίθεσθε ἐπ᾿ ἄνθρωπον; φονεύετε πάντες ὡς τοίχῳ κεκλιμένῳ καὶ φραγμῷ ὠσμένῳ.
5 πλὴν τὴν τιμήν μου ἐβουλεύσαντο ἀπώσασθαι, ἔδραμον ἐν δίψει, τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν εὐλόγουν καὶ τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶν κατηρῶντο. (διάψαλμα).
6 πλὴν τῷ Θεῷ ὑποτάγηθι, ἡ ψυχή μου, ὅτι παρ᾿ αὐτῷ ἡ ὑπομονή μου.
7 ὅτι αὐτὸς Θεός μου καὶ σωτήρ μου, ἀντιλήπτωρ μου, οὐ μὴ μεταναστεύσω.
8 ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ τὸ σωτήριόν μου καὶ ἡ δόξα μου· ὁ Θεὸς τῆς βοηθείας μου, καὶ ἡ ἐλπίς μου ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ.
9 ἐλπίσατε ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν πᾶσα συναγωγὴ λαοῦ· ἐκχέετε ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν, ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς βοηθὸς ἡμῶν. (διάψαλμα).
10 πλὴν μάταιοι οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων, ψευδεῖς οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἐν ζυγοῖς τοῦ ἀδικῆσαι αὐτοὶ ἐκ ματαιότητος ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό.
11 μὴ ἐλπίζετε ἐπ᾿ ἀδικίαν καὶ ἐπὶ ἁρπάγματα μὴ ἐπιποθεῖτε· πλοῦτος ἐὰν ῥέῃ, μὴ προστίθεσθε καρδίαν.
12 ἅπαξ ἐλάλησεν ὁ Θεός, δύο ταῦτα ἤκουσα, ὅτι τὸ κράτος τοῦ Θεοῦ,
13 καὶ σοῦ, Κύριε, τὸ ἔλεος, ὅτι σὺ ἀποδώσεις ἑκάστῳ κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ.
Ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τῆς Ἰουδαίας.
2 Ο ΘΕΟΣ ὁ Θεός μου, πρὸς σὲ ὀρθρίζω· ἐδίψησέ σε ἡ ψυχή μου, ποσαπλῶς σοι ἡ σάρξ μου ἐν γῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ ἀβάτῳ καὶ ἀνύδρῳ.
3 οὕτως ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ ὤφθην σοι τοῦ ἰδεῖν τὴν δύναμίν σου καὶ τὴν δόξαν σου.
4 ὅτι κρεῖσσον τὸ ἔλεός σου ὑπὲρ ζωάς· τὰ χείλη μου ἐπαινέσουσί σε.
5 οὕτως εὐλογήσω σε ἐν τῇ ζωῇ μου καὶ ἐν τῷ ὀνόματί σου ἀρῶ τὰς χεῖράς μου.
6 ὡς ἐκ στέατος καὶ πιότητος ἐμπλησθείη ἡ ψυχή μου, καὶ χείλη ἀγαλλιάσεως αἰνέσει τὸ στόμα μου.
7 εἰ ἐμνημόνευόν σου ἐπὶ τῆς στρωμνῆς μου, ἐν τοῖς ὄρθροις ἐμελέτων εἰς σέ·
8 ὅτι ἐγενήθης βοηθός μου, καὶ ἐν τῇ σκέπῃ τῶν πτερύγων σου ἀγαλλιάσομαι.
9 ἐκολλήθη ἡ ψυχή μου ὀπίσω σου, ἐμοῦ δὲ ἀντελάβετο ἡ δεξιά σου.
10 αὐτοὶ δὲ εἰς μάτην ἐζήτησαν τὴν ψυχήν μου, εἰσελεύσονται εἰς τὰ κατώτατα τῆς γῆς·
11 παραδοθήσονται εἰς χεῖρας ῥομφαίας, μερίδες ἀλωπέκων ἔσονται.
12 ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς εὐφρανθήσεται ἐπὶ τῷ Θεῷ, ἐπαινεθήσεται πᾶς ὁ ὀμνύων ἐν αὐτῷ, ὅτι ἐνεφράγη στόμα λαλούντων ἄδικα.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΕΙΣΑΚΟΥΣΟΝ, ὁ Θεός, τῆς φωνῆς μου, ἐν τῷ δέεσθαί με πρὸς σέ, ἀπὸ φόβου ἐχθροῦ ἐξελοῦ τὴν ψυχήν μου.
3 ἐσκέπασάς με ἀπὸ συστροφῆς πονηρευομένων, ἀπὸ πλήθους ἐργαζομένων ἀδικίαν,
4 οἵτινες ἠκόνησαν ὡς ῥομφαίαν τὰς γλώσσας αὐτῶν, ἐνέτειναν τόξον αὐτῶν πρᾶγμα πικρὸν
5 τοῦ κατατοξεῦσαι ἐν ἀποκρύφοις ἄμωμον, ἐξάπινα κατατοξεύσουσιν αὐτὸν καὶ οὐ φοβηθήσονται.
6 ἐκραταίωσαν ἑαυτοῖς λόγον πονηρόν, διηγήσαντο τοῦ κρύψαι παγίδας, εἶπαν· τίς ὄψεται αὐτούς;
7 ἐξηρεύνησαν ἀνομίαν, ἐξέλιπον ἐξερευνῶντες ἐξερευνήσεις. προσελεύσεται ἄνθρωπος, καὶ καρδία βαθεῖα,
8 καὶ ὑψωθήσεται, ὁ Θεός. βέλος νηπίων ἐγενήθησαν αἱ πληγαὶ αὐτῶν,
9 καὶ ἐξησθένησαν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς αἱ γλῶσσαι αὐτῶν. ἐταράχθησαν πάντες οἱ θεωροῦντες αὐτούς,
10 καὶ ἐφοβήθη πᾶς ἄνθρωπος. καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν τὰ ἔργα τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ τὰ ποιήματα αὐτοῦ συνῆκαν.
11 εὐφρανθήσεται δίκαιος ἐν τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ ἐλπιεῖ ἐπ᾿ αὐτόν, καὶ ἐπαινεθήσονται πάντες οἱ εὐθεῖς τῇ καρδίᾳ.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ, ᾠδή· Ἱερεμίου καὶ Ἰεζεκιήλ ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς παροικίας, ὅτε ἔμελλον ἐκπορεύεσθαι.
2 ΣΟΙ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ὕμνος, ὁ Θεός, ἐν Σιών, καὶ σοὶ ἀποδοθήσεται εὐχὴ ἐν Ἱερουσαλήμ.
3 εἰσάκουσον προσευχῆς μου· πρὸς σὲ πᾶσα σὰρξ ἥξει.
4 λόγοι ἀνόμων ὑπερεδυνάμωσαν ἡμᾶς, καὶ ταῖς ἀσεβείαις ἡμῶν σὺ ἱλάσῃ.
5 μακάριος ὃν ἐξελέξω καὶ προσελάβου· κατασκηνώσει ἐν ταῖς αὐλαῖς σου. πλησθησόμεθα ἐν τοῖς ἀγαθοῖς τοῦ οἴκου σου· ἅγιος ὁ ναός σου,
6 θαυμαστὸς ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ. ἐπάκουσον ἡμῶν, ὁ Θεός, ὁ σωτὴρ ἡμῶν, ἡ ἐλπὶς πάντων τῶν περάτων τῆς γῆς καὶ τῶν ἐν θαλάσσῃ μακράν,
7 ἑτοιμάζων ὄρη ἐν τῇ ἰσχύϊ αὐτοῦ, περιεζωσμένος ἐν δυναστείᾳ,
8 ὁ συνταράσσων τὸ κῦτος τῆς θαλάσσης, ἤχους κυμάτων αὐτῆς. ταραχθήσονται τὰ ἔθνη,
9 καὶ φοβηθήσονται οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὰ πέρατα ἀπὸ τῶν σημείων σου· ἐξόδους πρωΐας καὶ ἑσπέρας τέρψεις.
10 ἐπεσκέψω τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐμέθυσας αὐτήν, ἐπλήθυνας τοῦ πλουτίσαι αὐτήν· ὁ ποταμὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐπληρώθη ὑδάτων· ἡτοίμασας τὴν τροφὴν αὐτῶν, ὅτι οὕτως ἡ ἑτοιμασία.
11 τοὺς αὔλακας αὐτῆς μέθυσον, πλήθυνον τὰ γεννήματα αὐτῆς, ἐν ταῖς σταγόσιν αὐτῆς εὐφρανθήσεται ἀνατέλλουσα.
12 εὐλογήσεις τὸν στέφανον τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ τῆς χρηστότητός σου, καὶ τὰ πεδία σου πλησθήσονται πιότητος·
13 πιανθήσεται τὰ ὄρη τῆς ἐρήμου, καὶ ἀγαλλίασιν οἱ βουνοὶ περιζώσονται.
14 ἐνεδύσαντο οἱ κριοὶ τῶν προβάτων, καὶ αἱ κοιλάδες πληθυνοῦσι σῖτον· κεκράξονται, καὶ γὰρ ὑμνήσουσι.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ᾠδὴ ψαλμοῦ· ἀναστάσεως.
ΑΛΑΛΑΞΑΤΕ τῷ Κυρίῳ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ,
2 ψάλατε δὴ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ. δότε δόξαν αἰνέσει αὐτοῦ.
3 εἴπατε τῷ Θεῷ· ὡς φοβερὰ τὰ ἔργα σου· ἐν τῷ πλήθει τῆς δυνάμεώς σου ψεύσονταί σε οἱ ἐχθροί σου.
4 πᾶσα ἡ γῆ προσκυνησάτωσάν σοι καὶ ψαλάτωσάν σοι, ψαλάτωσαν τῷ ὀνόματί σου. (διάψαλμα).
5 δεῦτε καὶ ἴδετε τὰ ἔργα τοῦ Θεοῦ· φοβερὸς ἐν βουλαῖς ὑπὲρ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν ἀνθρώπων,
6 ὁ μεταστρέφων τὴν θάλασσαν εἰς ξηράν, ἐν ποταμῷ διελεύσονται ποδί. ἐκεῖ εὐφρανθησόμεθα ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ,
7 τῷ δεσπόζοντι ἐν τῇ δυναστείᾳ αὐτοῦ τοῦ αἰῶνος. οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰ ἔθνη ἐπιβλέπουσιν, οἱ παραπικραίνοντες μὴ ὑψούσθωσαν ἐν ἑαυτοῖς. (διάψαλμα).
8 εὐλογεῖτε, ἔθνη, τὸν Θεὸν ἡμῶν καὶ ἀκουτίσασθε τὴν φωνὴν τῆς αἰνέσεως αὐτοῦ,
9 τοῦ θεμένου τὴν ψυχήν μου εἰς ζωήν, καὶ μὴ δόντος εἰς σάλον τοὺς πόδας μου.
10 ὅτι ἐδοκίμασας ἡμᾶς, ὁ Θεός, ἐπύρωσας ἡμᾶς, ὡς πυροῦται τὸ ἀργύριον·
11 εἰσήγαγες ἡμᾶς εἰς τὴν παγίδα, ἔθου θλίψεις ἐπὶ τὸν νῶτον ἡμῶν.
12 ἐπεβίβασας ἀνθρώπους ἐπὶ τὰς κεφαλὰς ἡμῶν, διήλθομεν διὰ πυρὸς καὶ ὕδατος, καὶ ἐξήγαγες ἡμᾶς εἰς ἀναψυχήν.
13 εἰσελεύσομαι εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου ἐν ὁλοκαυτώμασιν, ἀποδώσω σοι τὰς εὐχάς μου,
14 ἃς διέστειλε τὰ χείλη μου καὶ ἐλάλησε τὸ στόμα μου ἐν τῇ θλίψει μου·
15 ὁλοκαυτώματα μεμυελωμένα ἀνοίσω σοι μετὰ θυμιάματος καὶ κριῶν, ἀνοίσω σοι βόας μετὰ χιμάρων. (διάψαλμα).
16 δεῦτε ἀκούσατε, καὶ διηγήσομαι, πάντες οἱ φοβούμενοι τὸν Θεόν, ὅσα ἐποίησε τῇ ψυχῇ μου.
17 πρὸς αὐτὸν τῷ στόματί μου ἐκέκραξα καὶ ὕψωσα ὑπὸ τὴν γλῶσσάν μου.
18 ἀδικίαν εἰ ἐθεώρουν ἐν καρδίᾳ μου, μὴ εἰσακουσάτω μου Κύριος.
19 διὰ τοῦτο εἰσήκουσέ μου ὁ Θεός, προσέσχε τῇ φωνῇ τῆς δεήσεώς μου.
20 εὐλογητὸς ὁ Θεός, ὃς οὐκ ἀπέστησε τὴν προσευχήν μου καὶ τὸ ἔλεος αὐτοῦ ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ἐν ὕμνοις· ψαλμὸς ᾠδῆς τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 Ο ΘΕΟΣ οἰκτειρήσαι ἡμᾶς καὶ εὐλογήσαι ἡμᾶς, ἐπιφάναι τὸ πρόσωπον αὑτοῦ ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς. (διάψαλμα).
3 τοῦ γνῶναι ἐν τῇ γῇ τὴν ὁδόν σου, ἐν πᾶσιν ἔθνεσι τὸ σωτήριόν σου.
4 ἐξομολογησάσθωσάν σοι λαοί, ὁ Θεός, ἐξομολογησάσθωσάν σοι λαοὶ πάντες.
5 εὐφρανθήτωσαν καὶ ἀγαλλιάσθωσαν ἔθνη, ὅτι κρινεῖς λαοὺς ἐν εὐθύτητι καὶ ἔθνη ἐν τῇ γῇ ὁδηγήσεις. (διάψαλμα).
6 ἐξομολογησάσθωσάν σοι λαοί, ὁ Θεός, ἐξομολογησάσθωσάν σοι λαοὶ πάντες.
7 γῆ ἔδωκε τὸν καρπὸν αὐτῆς· εὐλογήσαι ἡμᾶς ὁ Θεός, ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν.
8 εὐλογήσαι ἡμᾶς ὁ Θεός, καὶ φοβηθήτωσαν αὐτὸν πάντα τὰ πέρατα τῆς γῆς.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ᾠδῆς ψαλμὸς τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΑΝΑΣΤΗΤΩ ὁ Θεός, καὶ διασκορπισθήτωσαν οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ φυγέτωσαν ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ οἱ μισοῦντες αὐτόν.
3 ὡς ἐκλείπει καπνός, ἐκλιπέτωσαν· ὡς τήκεται κηρὸς ἀπὸ προσώπου πυρός, οὕτως ἀπολοῦνται οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ.
4 καὶ οἱ δίκαιοι εὐφρανθήτωσαν, ἀγαλλιάσθωσαν ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ, τερφθήτωσαν ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ.
5 ᾄσατε τῷ Θεῷ, ψάλατε τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ· ὁδοποιήσατε τῷ ἐπιβεβηκότι ἐπὶ δυσμῶν, Κύριος ὄνομα αὐτῷ, καὶ ἀγαλλιᾶσθε ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ.
6 ταραχθήσονται ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ, τοῦ πατρὸς τῶν ὀρφανῶν καὶ κριτοῦ τῶν χηρῶν· ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τόπῳ ἁγίῳ αὐτοῦ.
7 ὁ Θεὸς κατοικίζει μονοτρόπους ἐν οἴκῳ ἐξάγων πεπεδημένους ἐν ἀνδρείᾳ, ὁμοίως τοὺς παραπικραίνοντας, τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν τάφοις.
8 ὁ Θεός, ἐν τῷ ἐκπορεύεσθαί σε ἐνώπιον τοῦ λαοῦ σου, ἐν τῷ διαβαίνειν σε ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ. (διάψαλμα).
9 γῆ ἐσείσθη, καὶ γὰρ οἱ οὐρανοὶ ἔσταξαν ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ Σινᾶ, ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ Ἰσραήλ.
10 βροχὴν ἑκούσιον ἀφοριεῖς, ὁ Θεός, τῇ κληρονομίᾳ σου, καὶ ἠσθένησε, σὺ δὲ κατηρτίσω αὐτήν.
11 τὰ ζῷά σου κατοικοῦσιν ἐν αὐτῇ· ἡτοίμασας ἐν τῇ χρηστότητί σου τῷ πτωχῷ, ὁ Θεός.
12 Κύριος δώσει ῥῆμα τοῖς εὐαγγελιζομένοις δυνάμει πολλῇ,
13 ὁ βασιλεὺς τῶν δυνάμεων τοῦ ἀγαπητοῦ, τῇ ὡραιότητι τοῦ οἴκου διελέσθαι σκῦλα.
14 ἐὰν κοιμηθῆτε ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν κλήρων, πτέρυγες περιστερᾶς περιηργυρωμέναι, καὶ τὰ μετάφρενα αὐτῆς ἐν χλωρότητι χρυσίου.
15 ἐν τῷ διαστέλλειν τὸν ἐπουράνιον βασιλεῖς ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς, χιονωθήσονται ἐν Σελμών.
16 ὄρος τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὄρος πῖον, ὄρος τετυρωμένον, ὄρος πῖον.
17 ἱνατί ὑπολαμβάνετε, ὄρη τετυρωμένα, τὸ ὄρος, ὃ εὐδόκησεν ὁ Θεὸς κατοικεῖν ἐν αὐτῷ; καὶ γὰρ ὁ Κύριος κατασκηνώσει εἰς τέλος.
18 τὸ ἅρμα τοῦ Θεοῦ μυριοπλάσιον, χιλιάδες εὐθηνούντων· Κύριος ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐν Σινᾷ ἦν, ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ.
19 ἀνέβης εἰς ὕψος, ᾐχμαλώτευσας αἰχμαλωσίαν, ἔλαβες δόματα ἐν ἀνθρώποις, καὶ γὰρ ἀπειθοῦντας τοῦ κατασκηνῶσαι.
20 Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς εὐλογητός, εὐλογητὸς Κύριος ἡμέραν καθ᾿ ἡμέραν· κατευοδώσαι ἡμῖν ὁ Θεὸς τῶν σωτηρίων ἡμῶν. (διάψαλμα).
21 ὁ Θεὸς ἡμῶν, ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ σῴζειν, καὶ τοῦ Κυρίου Κυρίου αἱ διέξοδοι τοῦ θανάτου.
22 πλὴν ὁ Θεὸς συνθλάσει κεφαλὰς ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ, κορυφὴν τριχὸς διαπορευομένων ἐν πλημμελείαις αὐτῶν.
23 εἶπε Κύριος· ἐκ Βασὰν ἐπιστρέψω, ἐπιστρέψω ἐν βυθοῖς θαλάσσης.
24 ὅπως ἂν βαφῇ ὁ πούς σου ἐν αἵματι, ἡ γλῶσσα τῶν κυνῶν σου ἐξ ἐχθρῶν παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
25 ἐθεωρήθησαν αἱ πορεῖαί σου, ὁ Θεός, αἱ πορεῖαι τοῦ Θεοῦ μου τοῦ βασιλέως τοῦ ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ.
26 προέφθασαν ἄρχοντες ἐχόμενοι ψαλλόντων ἐν μέσῳ νεανίδων τυμπανιστριῶν.
27 ἐν ἐκκλησίαις εὐλογεῖτε τὸν Θεόν, Κύριον ἐκ πηγῶν Ἰσραήλ.
28 ἐκεῖ Βενιαμὶν νεώτερος ἐν ἐκστάσει, ἄρχοντες Ἰούδα ἡγεμόνες αὐτῶν, ἄρχοντες Ζαβουλών, ἄρχοντες Νεφθαλείμ.
29 ἔντειλαι, ὁ Θεός, τῇ δυνάμει σου, δυνάμωσον, ὁ Θεός, τοῦτο, ὃ κατειργάσω ἐν ἡμῖν.
30 ἀπὸ τοῦ ναοῦ σου ἐπὶ Ἱερουσαλὴμ σοὶ οἴσουσι βασιλεῖς δῶρα.
31 ἐπιτίμησον τοῖς θηρίοις τοῦ καλάμου· ἡ συναγωγὴ τῶν ταύρων ἐν ταῖς δαμάλεσι τῶν λαῶν τοῦ ἐγκλεισθῆναι τοὺς δεδοκιμασμένους τῷ ἀργυρίῳ· διασκόρπισον ἔθνη τὰ τοὺς πολέμους θέλοντα.
32 ἥξουσι πρέσβεις ἐξ Αἰγύπτου, Αἰθιοπία προφθάσει χεῖρα αὐτῆς τῷ Θεῷ.
33 αἱ βασιλεῖαι τῆς γῆς, ᾄσατε τῷ Θεῷ, ψάλατε τῷ Κυρίῳ. (διάψαλμα).
34 ψάλατε τῷ Θεῷ τῷ ἐπιβεβηκότι ἐπὶ τὸν οὐρανὸν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ κατὰ ἀνατολάς· ἰδοὺ δώσει τῇ φωνῇ αὐτοῦ φωνὴν δυνάμεως.
35 δότε δόξαν τῷ Θεῷ· ἐπὶ τὸν Ἰσραὴλ ἡ μεγαλοπρέπεια αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἡ δύναμις αὐτοῦ ἐν ταῖς νεφέλαις.
36 θαυμαστὸς ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις αὐτοῦ· ὁ Θεὸς Ἰσραήλ, αὐτὸς δώσει δύναμιν καὶ κραταίωσιν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ. εὐλογητὸς ὁ Θεός.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· ὑπὲρ τῶν ἀλλοιωθησομένων· τῷ Δαυΐδ.
2 ΣΩΣΟΝ με, ὁ Θεός, ὅτι εἰσήλθοσαν ὕδατα ἕως ψυχῆς μου.
3 ἐνεπάγην εἰς ἰλὺν βυθοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὑπόστασις· ἦλθον εἰς τὰ βάθη τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ καταιγὶς κατεπόντισέ με.
4 ἐκοπίασα κράζων, ἐβραγχίασεν ὁ λάρυγξ μου, ἐξέλιπον οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου ἀπὸ τοῦ ἐλπίζειν με ἐπὶ τὸν Θεόν μου.
5 ἐπληθύνθησαν ὑπὲρ τὰς τρίχας τῆς κεφαλῆς μου οἱ μισοῦντές με δωρεάν, ἐκραταιώθησαν οἱ ἐχθροί μου οἱ ἐκδιώκοντές με ἀδίκως· ἃ οὐχ ἥρπαζον, τότε ἀπετίννυον.
6 ὁ Θεός, σὺ ἔγνως τὴν ἀφροσύνην μου καὶ αἱ πλημμέλειαί μου ἀπὸ σοῦ οὐκ ἀπεκρύβησαν.
7 μὴ αἰσχυνθείησαν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ οἱ ὑπομένοντές σε, Κύριε, Κύριε τῶν δυνάμεων, μὴ ἐντραπείησαν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ οἱ ζητοῦντές σε, ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ Ἰσραήλ,
8 ὅτι ἕνεκά σου ὑπήνεγκα ὀνειδισμόν, ἐκάλυψεν ἐντροπὴ τὸ πρόσωπόν μου.
9 ἀπηλλοτριωμένος ἐγενήθην τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς μου καὶ ξένος τοῖς υἱοῖς τῆς μητρός μου,
10 ὅτι ὁ ζῆλος τοῦ οἴκου σου κατέφαγέ με, καὶ οἱ ὀνειδισμοὶ τῶν ὀνειδιζόντων σε ἐπέπεσον ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ.
11 καὶ συνεκάλυψα ἐν νηστείᾳ τὴν ψυχήν μου, καὶ ἐγενήθη εἰς ὀνειδισμοὺς ἐμοί·
12 καὶ ἐθέμην τὸ ἔνδυμά μου σάκκον, καὶ ἐγενόμην αὐτοῖς εἰς παραβολήν.
13 κατ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἠδολέσχουν οἱ καθήμενοι ἐν πύλαις, καὶ εἰς ἐμὲ ἔψαλλον οἱ πίνοντες οἶνον.
14 ἐγὼ δὲ τῇ προσευχῇ μου πρὸς σέ, Κύριε· καιρὸς εὐδοκίας, ὁ Θεός, ἐν τῷ πλήθει τοῦ ἐλέους σου· ἐπάκουσόν μου, ἐν ἀληθείᾳ τῆς σωτηρίας σου.
15 σῶσόν με ἀπὸ πηλοῦ, ἵνα μὴ ἐμπαγῶ· ῥυσθείην ἐκ τῶν μισούντων με καὶ ἐκ τῶν βαθέων τῶν ὑδάτων.
16 μή με καταποντισάτω καταιγὶς ὕδατος, μηδὲ καταπιέτω με βυθός, μηδὲ συσχέτω ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ φρέαρ τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ.
17 εἰσάκουσόν μου, Κύριε, ὅτι χρηστὸν τὸ ἔλεός σου· κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τῶν οἰκτιρμῶν σου ἐπίβλεψον ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ.
18 μὴ ἀποστρέψῃς τὸ πρόσωπόν σου ἀπὸ τοῦ παιδός σου, ὅτι θλίβομαι, ταχὺ ἐπάκουσόν μου.
19 πρόσχες τῇ ψυχῇ μου καὶ λύτρωσαι αὐτήν, ἕνεκα τῶν ἐχθρῶν μου ῥῦσαί με.
20 σὺ γὰρ γινώσκεις τὸν ὀνειδισμόν μου καὶ τὴν αἰσχύνην μου καὶ τὴν ἐντροπήν μου· ἐναντίον σου πάντες οἱ θλίβοντές με.
21 ὀνειδισμὸν προσεδόκησεν ἡ ψυχή μου καὶ ταλαιπωρίαν, καὶ ὑπέμεινα συλλυπούμενον, καὶ οὐχ ὑπῆρξε, καὶ παρακαλοῦντας, καὶ οὐχ εὗρον.
22 καὶ ἔδωκαν εἰς τὸ βρῶμά μου χολὴν καὶ εἰς τὴν δίψαν μου ἐπότισάν με ὄξος.
23 γενηθήτω ἡ τράπεζα αὐτῶν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν εἰς παγίδα καὶ εἰς ἀνταπόδοσιν καὶ εἰς σκάνδαλον.
24 σκοτισθήτωσαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτῶν τοῦ μὴ βλέπειν, καὶ τὸν νῶτον αὐτῶν διαπαντὸς σύγκαμψον.
25 ἔκχεον ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς τὴν ὀργήν σου, καὶ ὁ θυμὸς τῆς ὀργῆς σου καταλάβοι αὐτούς.
26 γενηθήτω ἡ ἔπαυλις αὐτῶν ἠρημωμένη, καὶ ἐν τοῖς σκηνώμασιν αὐτῶν μὴ ἔστω ὁ κατοικῶν·
27 ὅτι ὃν σὺ ἐπάταξας, αὐτοὶ κατεδίωξαν, καὶ ἐπὶ τὸ ἄλγος τῶν τραυμάτων μου προσέθηκαν.
28 πρόσθες ἀνομίαν ἐπὶ τῇ ἀνομίᾳ αὐτῶν, καὶ μὴ εἰσελθέτωσαν ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ σου·
29 ἐξαλειφθήτωσαν ἐκ βίβλου ζώντων καὶ μετὰ δικαίων μὴ γραφήτωσαν.
30 πτωχὸς καὶ ἀλγῶν εἰμι ἐγώ· ἡ σωτηρία σου, ὁ Θεός, ἀντιλάβοιτό μου.
31 αἰνέσω τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ Θεοῦ μου μετ᾿ ᾠδῆς, μεγαλυνῶ αὐτὸν ἐν αἰνέσει,
32 καὶ ἀρέσει τῷ Θεῷ ὑπὲρ μόσχον νέον κέρατα ἐκφέροντα καὶ ὁπλάς.
33 ἰδέτωσαν πτωχοὶ καὶ εὐφρανθήτωσαν· ἐκζητήσατε τὸν Θεόν, καὶ ζήσεται ἡ ψυχὴ ὑμῶν,
34 ὅτι εἰσήκουσε τῶν πενήτων ὁ Κύριος καὶ τοὺς πεπεδημένους αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐξουδένωσεν.
35 αἰνεσάτωσαν αὐτὸν οἱ οὐρανοὶ καὶ ἡ γῆ, θάλασσα καὶ πάντα τὰ ἕρποντα ἐν αὐτῇ.
36 ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς σώσει τὴν Σιών, καὶ οἰκοδομηθήσονται αἱ πόλεις τῆς Ἰουδαίας, καὶ κατοικήσουσιν ἐκεῖ καὶ κληρονομήσουσιν αὐτήν·
37 καὶ τὸ σπέρμα τῶν δούλων αὐτοῦ καθέξουσιν αὐτήν, καὶ οἱ ἀγαπῶντες τὸ ὄνομά σου κατασκηνώσουσιν ἐν αὐτῇ.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· τῷ Δαυΐδ εἰς ἀνάμνησιν, εἰς τὸ σῶσαί με Κύριον.
2 Ο ΘΕΟΣ, εἰς τὴν βοήθειάν μου πρόσχες· Κύριε, εἰς τὸ βοηθῆσαί μοι σπεῦσον.
3 αἰσχυνθήτωσαν καὶ ἐντραπήτωσαν οἱ ζητοῦντες τὴν ψυχήν μου· ἀποστραφήτωσαν εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω καὶ καταισχυνθήτωσαν οἱ βουλόμενοί μου κακά·
4 ἀποστραφήτωσαν παραυτίκα αἰσχυνόμενοι οἱ λέγοντές μοι· εὖγε εὖγε.
5 ἀγαλλιάσθωσαν καὶ εὐφρανθήτωσαν ἐπὶ σοὶ πάντες οἱ ζητοῦντές σε, ὁ Θεός, καὶ λεγέτωσαν διαπαντός· μεγαλυνθήτω ὁ Κύριος, οἱ ἀγαπῶντες τὸ σωτήριόν σου.
6 ἐγὼ δὲ πτωχός εἰμι καὶ πένης· ὁ Θεός, βοήθησόν μοι. βοηθός μου καὶ ῥύστης μου εἶ σύ· Κύριε, μὴ χρονίσῃς.
Τῷ Δαυΐδ· υἱῶν Ἰωναδὰβ καὶ τῶν πρώτων αἰχμαλωτισθέντων.
ΕΠΙ ΣΟΙ, Κύριε, ἤλπισα, μὴ καταισχυνθείην εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα.
2 ἐν τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ σου ὔρῦσαί με καὶ ἐξελοῦ με, κλῖνον πρός με τὸ οὖς σου καὶ σῶσόν με.
3 γενοῦ μοι εἰς Θεὸν ὑπερασπιστὴν καὶ εἰς τόπον ὀχυρὸν τοῦ σῶσαί με, ὅτι στερέωμά μου καὶ καταφυγή μου εἶ σύ.
4 ὁ Θεός μου, ῥῦσαί με ἐκ χειρὸς ἁμαρτωλοῦ, ἐκ χειρὸς παρανομοῦντος καὶ ἀδικοῦντος·
5 ὅτι σὺ εἶ ἡ ὑπομονή μου, Κύριε· Κύριε, ἡ ἐλπίς μου ἐκ νεότητός μου,
6 ἐπὶ σὲ ἐπεστηρίχθην ἀπὸ γαστρός, ἐκ κοιλίας μητρός μου σύ μου εἶ σκεπαστής· ἐν σοὶ ἡ ὕμνησίς μου διαπαντός.
7 ὡσεὶ τέρας ἐγενήθην τοῖς πολλοῖς, καὶ σὺ βοηθὸς κραταιός.
8 πληρωθήτω τὸ στόμα μου αἰνέσεως, ὅπως ὑμνήσω τὴν δόξαν σου, ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν τὴν μεγαλοπρέπειάν σου.
9 μὴ ἀποῤῥίψῃς με εἰς καιρὸν γήρως, ἐν τῷ ἐκλείπειν τὴν ἰσχύν μου μὴ ἐγκαταλίπῃς με.
10 ὅτι εἶπαν οἱ ἐχθροί μου ἐμοὶ καὶ οἱ φυλάσσοντες τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐβουλεύσαντο ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό
11 λέγοντες· ὁ Θεὸς ἐγκατέλιπεν αὐτόν· καταδιώξατε καὶ καταλάβετε αὐτόν, ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ ῥυόμενος.
12 ὁ Θεός μου, μὴ μακρύνῃς ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ· ὁ Θεός μου, εἰς τὴν βοήθειάν μου πρόσχες.
13 αἰσχυνθήτωσαν καὶ ἐκλιπέτωσαν οἱ ἐνδιαβάλλοντες τὴν ψυχήν μου, περιβαλλέσθωσαν αἰσχύνην καὶ ἐντροπὴν οἱ ζητοῦντες τὰ κακά μοι.
14 ἐγὼ δὲ διαπαντὸς ἐλπιῶ ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ προσθήσω ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν αἴνεσίν σου.
15 τὸ στόμα μου ἐξαγγελεῖ τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου, ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν τὴν σωτηρίαν σου, ὅτι οὐκ ἔγνων γραμματείας.
16 εἰσελεύσομαι ἐν δυναστείᾳ Κυρίου· Κύριε, μνησθήσομαι τῆς δικαιοσύνης σοῦ μόνου.
17 ὁ Θεός, ἃ ἐδίδαξάς με ἐκ νεότητός μου, καὶ μέχρι τοῦ νῦν ἀπαγγελῶ τὰ θαυμάσιά σου.
18 καὶ ἕως γήρως καὶ πρεσβείου, ὁ Θεός, μὴ ἐγκαταλίπῃς με, ἕως ἂν ἀπαγγελῶ τὸν βραχίονά σου τῇ γενεᾷ πάσῃ τῇ ἐπερχομένῃ,
19 τὴν δυναστείαν σου καὶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου. ὁ Θεός, ἕως ὑψίστων ἃ ἐποίησας μεγαλεῖα· ὁ Θεός, τίς ὅμοιός σοι;
20 ὅσας ἔδειξάς μοι θλίψεις πολλὰς καὶ κακάς, καὶ ἐπιστρέψας ἐζωοποίησάς με, καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἀβύσσων τῆς γῆς πάλιν ἀνήγαγές με.
21 ἐπλεόνασας ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ τὴν μεγαλωσύνην σου καὶ ἐπιστρέψας παρεκάλεσάς με καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἀβύσσων τῆς γῆς πάλιν ἀνήγαγές με.
22 καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ἐξομολογήσομαί σοι ἐν σκεύει ψαλμοῦ τὴν ἀλήθειάν σου, ὁ Θεός· ψαλῶ σοι ἐν κιθάρᾳ, ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ἰσραήλ.
23 ἀγαλλιάσονται τὰ χείλη μου, ὅταν ψάλω σοι, καὶ ἡ ψυχή μου, ἣν ἐλυτρώσω.
24 ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἡ γλῶσσά μου ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν μελετήσει τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου, ὅταν αἰσχυνθῶσι καὶ ἐντραπῶσιν οἱ ζητοῦντες τὰ κακά μοι.
Ο ΘΕΟΣ, τὸ κρίμα σου τῷ βασιλεῖ δὸς καὶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην σου τῷ υἱῷ τοῦ βασιλέως
2 κρίνειν τὸν λαόν σου ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ τοὺς πτωχούς σου ἐν κρίσει.
3 ἀναλαβέτω τὰ ὄρη εἰρήνην τῷ λαῷ σου καὶ οἱ βουνοὶ δικαιοσύνην.
4 κρινεῖ τοὺς πτωχοὺς τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ σώσει τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν πενήτων καὶ ταπεινώσει συκοφάντην
5 καὶ συμπαραμενεῖ τῷ ἡλίῳ καὶ πρὸ τῆς σελήνης γενεὰς γενεῶν.
6 καταβήσεται ὡς ὑετὸς ἐπὶ πόκον καὶ ὡσεὶ σταγὼν ἡ στάζουσα ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν.
7 ἀνατελεῖ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ δικαιοσύνη καὶ πλῆθος εἰρήνης, ἕως οὗ ἀνταναιρεθῇ ἡ σελήνη.
8 καὶ κατακυριεύσει ἀπὸ θαλάσσης ἕως θαλάσσης καὶ ἀπὸ ποταμῶν ἕως περάτων τῆς οἰκουμένης.
9 ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ προπεσοῦνται Αἰθίοπες, καὶ οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτοῦ χοῦν λείξουσι.
10 βασιλεῖς Θαρσὶς καὶ νῆσοι δῶρα προσοίσουσι, βασιλεῖς Ἀράβων καὶ Σαβᾶ δῶρα προσάξουσι.
11 καὶ προσκυνήσουσιν αὐτῷ πάντες οἱ βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς, πάντα τὰ ἔθνη δουλεύσουσιν αὐτῷ.
12 ὅτι ἐῤῥύσατο πτωχὸν ἐκ δυνάστου καὶ πένητα, ᾧ οὐχ ὑπῆρχε βοηθός.
13 φείσεται πτωχοῦ καὶ πένητος καὶ ψυχὰς πενήτων σώσει.
14 ἐκ τόκου καὶ ἐξ ἀδικίας λυτρώσεται τὰς ψυχὰς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἔντιμον τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν.
15 καὶ ζήσεται, καὶ δοθήσεται αὐτῷ ἐκ τοῦ χρυσίου τῆς Ἀραβίας, καὶ προσεύξονται περὶ αὐτοῦ διαπαντός, ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν εὐλογήσουσιν αὐτόν.
16 ἔσται στήριγμα ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐπ᾿ ἄκρων τῶν ὀρέων· ὑπεραρθήσεται ὑπὲρ τὸν Λίβανον ὁ καρπὸς αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐξανθήσουσιν ἐκ πόλεως ὡσεὶ χόρτος τῆς γῆς.
17 ἔσται τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ εὐλογημένον εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας, πρὸ τοῦ ἡλίου διαμένει τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐνευλογηθήσονται ἐν αὐτῷ πᾶσαι αἱ φυλαὶ τῆς γῆς, πάντα τὰ ἔθνη μακαριοῦσιν αὐτόν.
18 εὐλογητὸς Κύριος, ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, ὁ ποιῶν θαυμάσια μόνος,
19 καὶ εὐλογητὸν τὸ ὄνομα τῆς δόξης αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τοῦ αἰῶνος, καὶ πληρωθήσεται τῆς δόξης αὐτοῦ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ. γένοιτο, γένοιτο.
Ἐξέλιπον οἱ ὕμνοι Δαυΐδ τοῦ υἱοῦ Ἰεσσαί.
Ψαλμὸς τῷ Ἀσάφ.
ΩΣ ΑΓΑΘΟΣ ὁ Θεὸς τῷ Ἰσραήλ, τοῖς εὐθέσι τῇ καρδίᾳ.
2 ἐμοῦ δὲ παραμικρὸν ἐσαλεύθησαν οἱ πόδες, παρ᾿ ὀλίγον ἐξεχύθη τὰ διαβήματά μου.
3 ὅτι ἐζήλωσα ἐπὶ τοῖς ἀνόμοις εἰρήνην ἁμαρτωλῶν θεωρῶν,
4 ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ἀνάνευσις ἐν τῷ θανάτῳ αὐτῶν καὶ στερέωμα ἐν τῇ μάστιγι αὐτῶν·
5 ἐν κόποις ἀνθρώπων οὐκ εἰσὶ καὶ μετὰ ἀνθρώπων οὐ μαστιγωθήσονται.
6 διὰ τοῦτο ἐκράτησεν αὐτοὺς ἡ ὑπερηφανία, περιεβάλοντο ἀδικίαν καὶ ἀσέβειαν ἑαυτῶν.
7 ἐξελεύσεται ὡς ἐκ στέατος ἡ ἀδικία αὐτῶν, διῆλθον εἰς διάθεσιν καρδίας·
8 διενοήθησαν καὶ ἐλάλησαν ἐν πονηρίᾳ, ἀδικίαν εἰς τὸ ὕψος ἐλάλησαν·
9 ἔθεντο εἰς οὐρανὸν τὸ στόμα αὐτῶν, καὶ ἡ γλῶσσα αὐτῶν διῆλθεν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.
10 διὰ τοῦτο ἐπιστρέψει ὁ λαός μου ἐνταῦθα, καὶ ἡμέραι πλήρεις εὑρεθήσονται ἐν αὐτοῖς.
11 καὶ εἶπαν· πῶς ἔγνω ὁ Θεός; καὶ εἰ ἔστι γνῶσις ἐν τῷ Ὑψίστῳ;
12 ἰδοὺ οὗτοι οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ καὶ εὐθηνοῦντες· εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα κατέσχον πλούτου.
13 καὶ εἶπα· ἄρα ματαίως ἐδικαίωσα τὴν καρδίαν μου καὶ ἐνιψάμην ἐν ἀθῴοις τὰς χεῖράς μου·
14 καὶ ἐγενόμην μεμαστιγωμένος ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν, καὶ ὁ ἔλεγχός μου εἰς τὰς πρωΐας.
15 εἰ ἔλεγον· διηγήσομαι οὕτως, ἰδοὺ τῇ γενεᾷ τῶν υἱῶν σου ἠσυνθέτηκα.
16 καὶ ὑπέλαβον τοῦ γνῶναι τοῦτο· κόπος ἐστὶν ἐνώπιόν μου,
17 ἕως εἰσέλθω εἰς τὸ ἁγιαστήριον τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ συνῶ εἰς τὰ ἔσχατα αὐτῶν.
18 πλὴν διὰ τὰς δολιότητας αὐτῶν ἔθου αὐτοῖς κακά, κατέβαλες αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ἐπαρθῆναι.
19 πῶς ἐγένοντο εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἐξάπινα· ἐξέλιπον, ἀπώλοντο διὰ τὴν ἀνομίαν αὐτῶν.
20 ὡσεὶ ἐνύπνιον ἐξεγειρομένου, Κύριε, ἐν τῇ πόλει σου τὴν εἰκόνα αὐτῶν ἐξουδενώσεις.
21 ὅτι ἐξεκαύθη ἡ καρδία μου, καὶ οἱ νεφροί μου ἠλλοιώθησαν,
22 κἀγὼ ἐξουδενωμένος καὶ οὐκ ἔγνων, κτηνώδης ἐγενόμην παρά σοι.
23 κἀγὼ διαπαντὸς μετὰ σοῦ, ἐκράτησας τῆς χειρὸς τῆς δεξιᾶς μου
24 καὶ ἐν τῇ βουλῇ σου ὡδήγησάς με καὶ μετὰ δόξης προσελάβου με.
25 τί γάρ μοι ὑπάρχει ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ, καὶ παρὰ σοῦ τί ἠθέλησα ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς;
26 ἐξέλιπεν ἡ καρδία μου καὶ ἡ σάρξ μου, ὁ Θεὸς τῆς καρδίας μου καὶ ἡ μερίς μου ὁ Θεὸς εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα.
27 ὅτι ἰδοὺ οἱ μακρύνοντες ἑαυτοὺς ἀπὸ σοῦ ἀπολοῦνται, ἐξωλόθρευσας πάντα τὸν πορνεύοντα ἀπὸ σοῦ.
28 ἐμοὶ δὲ τὸ προσκολλᾶσθαι τῷ Θεῷ ἀγαθόν ἐστι, τίθεσθαι ἐν τῷ Κυρίῳ τὴν ἐλπίδα μου τοῦ ἐξαγγεῖλαί με πάσας τὰς αἰνέσεις σου ἐν ταῖς πύλαις τῆς θυγατρὸς Σιών.
Συνέσεως τῷ Ἀσάφ.
ΙΝΑΤΙ ἀπώσω, ὁ Θεός, εἰς τέλος; ὠργίσθη ὁ θυμός σου ἐπὶ πρόβατα νομῆς σου;
2 μνήσθητι τῆς συναγωγῆς σου, ἧς ἐκτήσω ἀπ᾿ ἀρχῆς· ἐλυτρώσω ῥάβδον κληρονομίας σου, ὄρος Σιὼν τοῦτο, ὃ κατεσκήνωσας ἐν αὐτῷ.
3 ἔπαρον τὰς χεῖράς σου ἐπὶ τὰς ὑπερηφανίας αὐτῶν εἰς τέλος, ὅσα ἐπονηρεύσατο ὁ ἐχθρὸς ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις σου.
4 καὶ ἐνεκαυχήσαντο οἱ μισοῦντές σε ἐν μέσῳ τῆς ἑορτῆς σου, ἔθεντο τὰ σημεῖα αὐτῶν σημεῖα καὶ οὐκ ἔγνωσαν.
5 ὡς εἰς τὴν ἔξοδον ὑπεράνω,
6 ὡς ἐν δρυμῷ ξύλων ἀξίναις ἐξέκοψαν τὰς θύρας αὐτῆς ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἐν πελέκει καὶ λαξευτηρίῳ κατέῤῥαξαν αὐτήν.
7 ἐνεπύρισαν ἐν πυρὶ τὸ ἁγιαστήριόν σου, εἰς τὴν γῆν ἐβεβήλωσαν τὸ σκήνωμα τοῦ ὀνόματός σου.
8 εἶπαν ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶν αἱ συγγένειαι αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό· δεῦτε καὶ καταπαύσωμεν πάσας τὰς ἑορτὰς τοῦ Θεοῦ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς.
9 τὰ σημεῖα αὐτῶν οὐκ εἴδομεν, οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι προφήτης, καὶ ἡμᾶς οὐ γνώσεται ἔτι.
10 ἕως πότε, ὁ Θεός, ὀνειδιεῖ ὁ ἐχθρός, παροξυνεῖ ὁ ὑπεναντίος τὸ ὄνομά σου εἰς τέλος;
11 ἱνατί ἀποστρέφεις τὴν χεῖρά σου καὶ τὴν δεξιάν σου ἐκ μέσου τοῦ κόλπου σου εἰς τέλος;
12 ὁ δὲ Θεὸς βασιλεὺς ἡμῶν πρὸ αἰώνων, εἰργάσατο σωτηρίαν ἐν μέσῳ τῆς γῆς.
13 σὺ ἐκραταίωσας ἐν τῇ δυνάμει σου τὴν θάλασσαν, σὺ συνέτριψας τὰς κεφαλὰς τῶν δρακόντων ἐπὶ τοῦ ὕδατος.
14 σὺ συνέθλασας τὴν κεφαλὴν τοῦ δράκοντος, ἔδωκας αὐτὸν βρῶμα λαοῖς τοῖς Αἰθίοψι.
15 σὺ διέῤῥηξας πηγὰς καὶ χειμάῤῥους, σὺ ἐξήρανας ποταμοὺς Ἠθάμ.
16 σή ἐστιν ἡ ἡμέρα, καὶ σή ἐστιν ἡ νύξ, σὺ κατηρτίσω φαῦσιν καὶ ἥλιον.
17 σὺ ἐποίησας πάντα τὰ ὡραῖα τῆς γῆς· θέρος καὶ ἔαρ, σὺ ἔπλασας αὐτά.
18 μνήσθητι ταύτης· ἐχθρὸς ὠνείδισε τὸν Κύριον, καὶ λαὸς ἄφρων παρώξυνε τὸ ὄνομά σου.
19 μὴ παραδῷς τοῖς θηρίοις ψυχὴν ἐξομολογουμένην σοι, τῶν ψυχῶν τῶν πενήτων σου μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ εἰς τέλος.
20 ἐπίβλεψον εἰς τὴν διαθήκην σου, ὅτι ἐπληρώθησαν οἱ ἐσκοτισμένοι τῆς γῆς οἴκων ἀνομιῶν.
21 μὴ ἀποστραφήτω τεταπεινωμένος καὶ κατῃσχυμένος· πτωχὸς καὶ πένης αἰνέσουσι τὸ ὄνομά σου.
22 ἀνάστα, ὁ Θεός, δίκασον τὴν δίκην σου· μνήσθητι τοῦ ὀνειδισμοῦ σου τοῦ ὑπὸ ἄφρονος ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν.
23 μὴ ἐπιλάθῃ τῆς φωνῆς τῶν ἱκετῶν σου· ἡ ὑπερηφανία τῶν μισούντων σε ἀνέβη διὰ παντός.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος· μὴ διαφθείρῃς· ψαλμὸς ᾠδῆς τῷ Ἀσάφ.
2 ΕΞΟΜΟΛΟΓΗΣΟΜΕΘΑ σοι, ὁ Θεός, ἐξομολογησόμεθά σοι καὶ ἐπικαλεσόμεθα τὸ ὄνομά σου.
3 διηγήσομαι πάντα τὰ θαυμάσιά σου, ὅταν λάβω καιρόν· ἐγὼ εὐθύτητας κρινῶ.
4 ἐτάκη ἡ γῆ καὶ πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν αὐτῇ, ἐγὼ ἐστερέωσα τοὺς στύλους αὐτῆς. (διάψαλμα).
5 εἶπα τοῖς παρανομοῦσι· μὴ παρανομεῖτε, καὶ τοῖς ἁμαρτάνουσι· μὴ ὑψοῦτε κέρας,
6 μὴ ἐπαίρετε εἰς ὕψος τὸ κέρας ὑμῶν καὶ μὴ λαλεῖτε κατὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ ἀδικίαν.
7 ὅτι οὔτε ἐξ ἐξόδων οὔτε ἀπὸ δυσμῶν οὔτε ἀπὸ ἐρήμων ὀρέων,
8 ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς κριτής ἐστι, τοῦτον ταπεινοῖ καὶ τοῦτον ὑψοῖ.
9 ὅτι ποτήριον ἐν χειρὶ Κυρίου οἴνου ἀκράτου πλῆρες κεράσματος. καὶ ἔκλινεν ἐκ τούτου εἰς τοῦτο, πλὴν ὁ τρυγίας αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐξεκενώθη, πίονται πάντες οἱ ἁμαρτωλοὶ τῆς γῆς·
10 ἐγὼ δὲ ἀγαλλιάσομαι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, ψαλῶ τῷ Θεῷ Ἰακώβ· καὶ πάντα τὰ κέρατα τῶν ἁμαρτωλῶν συνθλάσω, καὶ ὑψωθήσεται τὰ κέρατα τοῦ δικαίου.
Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ἐν ὕμνοις· ψαλμὸς τῷ Ἀσάφ, ᾠδὴ πρὸς τὸν Ἀσσύριον.
2 ΓΝΩΣΤΟΣ ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ ὁ Θεός, ἐν τῷ Ἰσραὴλ μέγα τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ.
3 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν εἰρήνῃ ὁ τόπος αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὸ κατοικητήριον αὐτοῦ ἐν Σιών·
4 ἐκεῖ συνέτριψε τὰ κράτη τῶν τόξων, ὅπλον καὶ ῥομφαίαν καὶ πόλεμον. (διάψαλμα).
5 φωτίζεις σὺ θαυμαστῶς ἀπὸ ὀρέων αἰωνίων·
6 ἐταράχθησαν πάντες οἱ ἀσύνετοι τῇ καρδίᾳ, ὕπνωσαν ὕπνον αὐτῶν καὶ οὐχ εὗρον οὐδὲν πάντες οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ πλούτου ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν.
7 ἀπὸ ἐπιτιμήσεώς σου, ὁ Θεὸς Ἰακώβ, ἐνύσταξαν οἱ ἐπιβεβηκότες τοῖς ἵπποις.
8 σὺ φοβερὸς εἶ, καὶ τίς ἀντιστήσεταί σοι; ἀπὸ τότε ἡ ὀργή σου.
9 ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἠκούτισας κρίσιν, γῆ ἐφοβήθη καὶ ἡσύχασεν
10 ἐν τῷ ἀναστῆναι εἰς κρίσιν τὸν Θεὸν τοῦ σῶσαι πάντας τοὺς πραεῖς τῆς γῆς. (διάψαλμα).
11 ὅτι ἐνθύμιον ἀνθρώπου ἐξομολογήσεταί σοι, καὶ ἐγκατάλειμμα ἐνθυμίου ἑορτάσει σοι.
12 εὔξασθε καὶ ἀπόδοτε Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ ἡμῶν· πάντες οἱ κύκλῳ αὐτοῦ οἴσουσι δῶρα
13 τῷ φοβερῷ καὶ ἀφαιρουμένῳ πνεύματα ἀρχόντων, φοβερῷ παρὰ τοῖς βασιλεῦσι τῆς γῆς.
For the end, a Psalm of instruction by David, when Doec the Idumean came and told Saul, and said to him, David is gone to the house of Abimelech.
3 Why dost thou, O mighty man, boast of iniquity in thy mischief? All the day
4 thy tongue has devised unrighteousness; like a sharpened razor thou hast wrought deceit.
5 Thou hast loved wickedness more than goodness; unrighteousness better than to speak righteousness. (Pause).
6 Thou has loved all words of destruction, and a deceitful tongue.
7 Therefore may God destroy thee for ever, may he pluck thee up and utterly remove thee from thy dwelling, and thy root from the land of the living. (Pause).
8 And the righteous shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him, and say,
9 Behold the man who made not God his help; but trusted in the abundance of his wealth, and strengthened himself in his vanity.
10 But I am as a fruitful olive in the house of God: I have trusted in the mercy of God for ever, even for evermore.
11 I will give thanks to thee for ever, for thou hast done it: and I will wait on thy name; for it is good before the saints.
For the end, a Psalm of David upon Maeleth, of instruction.
2 The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They have corrupted themselves, and become abominable in iniquities: there is none that does good.
3 God looked down from heaven upon the sons of men, to see if there were any that understood, or sought after God.
4 They have all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, there is not even one.
5 Will none of the workers of iniquity know, who devour my people as they would eat bread? they have not called upon God. There were they greatly afraid, where there was no fear:
6 or God has scattered the bones of the men-pleasers; they were ashamed, for God despised them.
7 Who will bring the salvation of Israel out of Sion? When the Lord turns the captivity of his people, Jacob shall exult, and Israel shall be glad.
For the end, among Hymns of instruction by David, when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, Lo, is not David hid with us?
3 Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy might.
4 O God, hear my prayer; hearken to the words of my mouth.
5 For strangers have risen up against me, and mighty men have sought my life: they have not set God before them. (Pause).
6 For lo! God assists me; and the Lord is the helper of my soul.
7 He shall return evil to mine enemies; utterly destroy them in thy truth.
8 I will willingly sacrifice to thee: I will give thanks to thy name, O Lord; for it is good.
9 For thou hast delivered me out of all affliction, and mine eye has seen my desire upon mine enemies.
For the end, among Hymns of instruction by David.
2 Hearken, O God, to my prayer; and disregard not my supplication.
3 Attend to me, and hearken to me: I was grieved in my meditation, and troubled;
4 because of the voice of the enemy, and because of the oppression of the sinner: for they brought iniquity against me, and were wrathfully angry with me.
5 My heart was troubled within me; and the fear of death fell upon me.
6 Fear and trembling came upon me, and darkness covered me.
7 And I said, O that I had wings as those of a dove! then would I flee away, and be at rest.
8 Lo! I have fled afar off, and lodged in the wilderness. (Pause).
9 I waited for him that should deliver me from distress of spirit and tempest.
10 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen iniquity and gain saying in the city.
11 Day and night he shall go round about it upon its walls: iniquity and sorrow and unrighteousness are in the midst of it;
12 and usury and craft have not failed from its streets.
13 For if an enemy had reproached me, I would have endured it; and if one who hated me had spoken vauntingly against me, I would have hid myself from him.
14 But thou, O man like minded, my guide, and my acquaintance,
15 who in companionship with me sweetened our food: we walked in the house of God in concord.
16 Let death come upon them, and let them go down alive into Hades, for iniquity is in their dwellings, in the midst of them.
17 I cried to God, and the Lord hearkened to me.
18 Evening, and morning, and at noon I will declare and make known my wants: and he shall hear my voice.
19 He shall deliver my soul in peace from them that draw nigh to me: for they were with me in many cases.
20 God shall hear, and bring them low, even he that has existed from eternity. Pause. For they suffer no reverse, and therefore they have not feared God.
21 He has reached forth his hand for retribution; they have profaned his covenant.
22 They were scattered at the anger of his countenance, and his heart drew nigh them. His words were smoother than oil, yet are they darts.
23 Cast thy care upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee; he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
24 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down to the pit of destruction; bloody and crafty men shall not live out half their days; but I will hope in thee, O Lord.
For the end, concerning the people that were removed from the sanctuary, by David for a memorial, when the Philistines caught him in Geth.
2 Have mercy upon me, O God; for man has trodden me down; all the day long he warring has afflicted me.
3 Mine enemies have trodden me down all the day from the dawning of the day; for there are many warring against me.
4 They shall be afraid, but I will trust in thee.
5 In God I will praise my words; all the day have I hoped in God; I will not fear what flesh shall do to me.
6 All the day long they have abominated my words; all their devices are against me for evil.
7 They will dwell near and hide themselves; they will watch my steps, accordingly as I have waited patiently in my soul.
8 Thou wilt on no account save them; thou wilt bring down the people in wrath.
9 O God, I have declared my life to thee; thou has set my tears before thee, even according to thy promise.
10 Mine enemies shall be turned back, in the day wherein I shall call upon thee; behold, I know that thou art my God.
11 In God, will I praise his word; in the Lord will I praise his saying.
12 I have hoped in God; I will not be afraid of what man shall do to me.
13 The vows of thy praise, O God, which I will pay, are upon me.
14 For thou hast delivered my soul from death, and my feet from sliding, that I should be well-pleasing before God in the land of the living.
For the end. Destroy not: by David, for a memorial, when he fled from the presence of Saul to the cave.
2 Have mercy, upon me, O God, have mercy upon me: for my soul has trusted in thee: and in the shadow of thy wings will I hope, until the iniquity have passed away.
3 I will cry to God most high; the God who has benefited me.
4 He sent from heaven and saved me; he gave to reproach them that trampled on me: (Pause). God has sent forth his mercy and his truth;
5 and he has delivered my soul from the midst of lions’whelps: I lay down to sleep, though troubled. As for the sons of men, their teeth are arms and missile weapons, and their tongue a sharp sword.
6 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth.
7 They have prepared snares for my feet, and have bowed down my soul: they have dug a pit before my face, and fallen into it themselves. (Pause).
8 My heart, O God, is ready, my heart is ready: I will sing, yea will sing psalms.
9 Awake, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I will awake early.
10 O Lord, I will give thanks to thee among the nations: I will sing to thee among the Gentiles.
11 For thy mercy has been magnified even to the heavens, and thy truth to the clouds.
12 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth.
For the end. Destroy not: by David, for a memorial.
2 If ye do indeed speak righteousness, then do ye judge rightly, ye sons of men.
3 For ye work iniquities in your hearts in the earth: your hands plot unrighteousness.
4 Sinners have gone astray from the womb: they go astray from the belly: they speak lies.
5 Their venom is like that of a serpent; as that of a deaf asp, and that stops her ears;
6 which will not hear the voice of charmers, nor heed the charm prepared skillfully by the wise.
7 God has crushed their teeth in their mouth: God has broken the cheek-teeth of the lions.
8 They shall utterly pass away like water running through: he shall bend his bow till they shall fail.
9 They shall be destroyed as melted wax: the fire has fallen and they have not seen the sun.
10 Before your thorns feel the white thorn, he shall swallow you up as living, as in his wrath.
11 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance of the ungodly: he shall wash his hands in the blood of the sinner.
12 And a man shall say, Verily then there is a reward for the righteous: verily there is a God that judges them in the earth.
For the end. Destroy not: by David for a memorial, when Saul sent, and watched his house to kill him.
2 Deliver me from mine enemies, O God; and ransom me from those that rise up against me.
3 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
4 For, behold, they have hunted after my soul; violent men have set upon me: neither is it my iniquity, nor my sin, O Lord.
5 Without iniquity I ran and directed my course aright: awake to help me, and behold.
6 And thou, Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, draw nigh to visit all the heathen; pity not any that work iniquity. (Pause).
7 They shall return at evening, and hunger like a dog, and go round about the city.
8 Behold, they shall utter a voice with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips; for who, say they, has heard?
9 But thou, Lord, wilt laugh them to scorn; thou wilt utterly set at nought all the heathen.
10 will keep my strength, looking to thee; for thou, O God, art my helper.
11 As for my God, his mercy shall go before me: my God will shew me vengeance on mine enemies.
12 Slay them not, lest they forget thy law; scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord, my defender.
13 For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips, let them be even taken in their pride. And for their cursing and falsehood shall utter destruction be denounced:
14 they shall fall by the wrath of utter destruction, and shall not be; so shall they know that the God of Jacob is Lord of the ends of the earth. (Pause).
15 They shall return at evening, and be hungry as a dog, and go round about the city.
16 They shall be scattered hither and thither for meat; and if they be not satisfied, they shall even murmur.
17 But I will sing to thy strength, and in the morning will I exult in thy mercy; for thou hast been my supporter, and my refuge in the day of mine affliction.
18 Thou art my helper; to thee, my God, will I sing; thou art my supporter, O my God, and my mercy.
For the end, for them that shall yet be changed; for an inscription by David for instruction, when he had burned Mesopotamia of Syria, and Syria Sobal, and Joab had returned and smitten in the valley of salt twelve thousand.
3 O God, thou hast rejected and destroyed us; thou hast been angry, yet hast pitied us.
4 Thou hast shaken the earth, and troubled it; heal its breaches, for it has been shaken.
5 Thou hast shewn thy people hard things: thou has made us drink the wine of astonishment.
6 Thou hast given a token to them that fear thee, that they might flee from the bow. (Pause).
7 That thy beloved ones may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
8 God has spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, and divide Sicima, and measure out the valley of tents.
9 Galaad is mine, and Manasse is mine; and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judas is my king;
10 Moab is the caldron of my hope; over Idumea will I stretch out my shoe; the Philistines have been subjected to me.
11 Who will lead me into the fortified city? who will guide me as far a Idumea?
12 Wilt not thou, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our forces?
13 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the deliverance of man.
14 In God will we do valiantly; and he shall bring to nought them that harass us.
For the end, among the Hymns of David.
2 O God, hearken to my petition; attend to my prayer.
3 From the ends of the earth have I cried to thee, when my heart was in trouble: thou liftedst me up on a rock thou didst guide me:
4 because thou wert my hope, a tower of strength from the face of the enemy.
5 I will dwell in thy tabernacle for ever; I will shelter myself under the shadow of thy wings. (Pause).
6 For thou, o God, hast heard my prayers; thou hast given an inheritance to them that fear thy name.
7 Thou shalt add days to the days of the king; thou shalt lengthen his years to all generations.
8 He shall endure for ever before God: which of them will seek out his mercy and truth?
9 So will I sing to thy name for ever and ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
For the end, a Psalm of David for Idithun.
2 Shall not my soul be subjected to God? for of him is my salvation.
3 For he is my God, and my saviour; my helper, I shall not be moved very much.
4 How long will ye assault a man? ye are all slaughtering as with a bowed wall and a broken hedge.
5 They only took counsel to set at nought mine honour: I ran in thirst: with their mouth they blessed, but with their heart they cursed. (Pause).
6 Nevertheless do thou, my soul, be subjected to God; for of him is my patient hope.
7 For he is my God and my Saviour; my helper, I shall not be moved.
8 In God is my salvation and my glory: he is the God of my help, and my hope is in God.
9 Hope in him, all ye congregation of the people; pour out your hearts before him, for God is our helper. (Pause).
10 But the sons of men are vain; the sons of men are false, so as to be deceitful in the balances; they are all alike formed out of vanity.
11 Trust not in unrighteousness, and lust not after robberies: if wealth should flow in, set not your heart upon it.
12 God has spoken once, and I have heard these two things, that power is of God;
13 and mercy is thine, O Lord; for thou wilt recompense every one according to his works.
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Idumea.
2 O God, my God, I cry to thee early; my soul has thirsted for thee: how often has my flesh longed after thee, in a barren and trackless and dry land!
3 Thus have I appeared before thee in the sanctuary, that I might see thy power and thy glory.
4 For thy mercy is better than life: my lips shall praise thee.
5 Thus will I bless thee during my life: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
6 Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness; and my joyful lips shall praise thy name.
7 Forasmuch as I have remembered thee on my bed: in the early seasons I have meditated on thee.
8 For thou hast been my helper, and in the shelter of thy wings will I rejoice.
9 My soul has kept very close behind thee: thy right hand has upheld me.
10 But they vainly sought after my soul; they shall go into the lowest parts o the earth.
11 They shall be delivered up to the power of the sword; they shall be portions for foxes.
12 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall be praised; for the mouth of them that speak unjust things has been stopped.
For the end, a Psalm of David.
2 Hear my prayer, O God, when I make my petition to thee; deliver my soul from fear of the enemy.
3 Thou hast sheltered me from the conspiracy of them that do wickedly; from the multitude of them that work iniquity;
4 who have sharpened their tongues as a sword; they have bent their bow maliciously;
5 to shoot in secret at the blameless; they will shoot him suddenly, and will not fear.
6 They have set up for themselves an evil matter, they have given counsel to hide snares; they have said, Who shall see them?
7 They have searched out iniquity; they have wearied themselves with searching diligently, a man shall approach and the heart is deep,
8 and God shall be exalted, their wounds were caused by the weapon of the foolish children,
9 and their tongues have set him at nought, all that saw them were troubled;
10 and every man was alarmed, and they related the works of God, and understood his deeds.
11 The righteous shall rejoice in the Lord, and hope on him, and all the upright in heart shall be praised.
For the end, a Psalm and Song of David.
2 Praise becomes thee, O God, in Sion; and to thee shall the vow be performed.
3 Hear my prayer; to thee all flesh shall come.
4 The words of transgressors have overpowered us; but do thou pardon our sins.
5 Blessed is he whom thou hast chosen and adopted; he shall dwell in thy courts; we shall be filled with the good things of thy house; thy temple is holy.
6 Thou art wonderful in righteousness. Hearken to us, O God our Saviour; the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are on the sea afar off:
7 who dost establish the mountains in thy strength, being girded about with power;
8 who troublest the depth of the sea, the sounds of its waves.
9 The nations shall be troubled, and they that inhabit the ends of the earth shall be afraid of thy signs; thou wilt cause the outgoings of morning and evening to rejoice.
10 Thou hast visited the earth, and saturated it; thou hast abundantly enriched it. The river of God is filled with water; thou hast prepared their food, for thus is the preparation of it.
11 Saturate her furrows, multiply her fruits; the crop springing up shall rejoice in its drops.
12 Thou wilt bless the crown of the year because of thy goodness; and thy plains shall be filled with fatness.
13 The mountains of the wilderness shall be enriched; and the hills shall gird themselves with joy.
14 The rams of the flock are clothed with wool, and the valleys shall abound in corn; they shall cry aloud, yea they shall sing hymns.
For the end, a Song of Psalm of resurrection.
Shout unto God, all the earth.
2 O sing praises to his name; give glory to his praise.
3 Say unto God, How awful are thy works! through the greatness of thy power thine enemies shall lie to thee.
4 Let all the earth worship thee, and sing to thee; let them sing to thy name. (Pause).
5 Come and behold the works of God; he is terrible in his counsels beyond the children of men.
6 Who turns the sea into dry land; they shall go through the river on foot; there shall we rejoice in him,
7 who by his power is Lord over the age, his eyes look upon the nations; let not them that provoke him be exalted in themselves. (Pause).
8 Bless our God, ye Gentiles, and make the voice of his praise to be heard;
9 who quickens my soul in life, and does not suffer my feet to be moved.
10 For thou, O God, has proved us; thou hast tried us with fire as silver is tried.
11 Thou broughtest us into the snare; thou laidest afflictions on our back.
12 Thou didst mount men upon our heads; we went through the fire and water; but thou broughtest us out into a place of refreshment.
13 I will go into thine house with whole-burnt-offerings; I will pay thee my vows,
14 which my lips framed, and my mouth uttered in my affliction.
15 I will offer to thee whole-burnt-sacrifices full of marrow, with incense and rams; I will sacrifice to thee oxen with goats. (Pause).
16 Come, hear, and I will tell, all ye that fear God, how great things he has done for my soul.
17 I cried to him with my mouth, and exalted him with my tongue.
18 If I have regarded iniquity in my heart, let not the Lord hearken to me.
19 Therefore God has hearkened to me; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
For the end, a Psalm of David among the Hymns.
2 God be merciful to us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us. (Pause).
3 That men may know thy way on the earth, thy salvation among all nations.
4 Let the nations, O God, give thanks to thee; let all the nations give thanks to thee.
5 Let the nations rejoice and exult, for thou shalt judge the peoples in equity, and shalt guide the nations on the earth. (Pause).
6 Let the peoples, O God, give thanks to thee; let all the peoples give thanks to thee.
7 The earth has yielded her fruit; let God, our God bless us.
8 Let God bless us; and let all the ends of the earth fear him.
For the end, a Psalm of a Song by David.
2 Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered; and let them that hate him flee from before him.
3 As smoke vanishes, let them vanish: as wax melts before the fire, so let the sinners perish from before God.
4 But let the righteous rejoice; let them exult before God: let them be delighted with joy.
5 Sing to God, sing praises to his name: make a way for him that rides upon the west (the Lord is his name) and exult before him. They shall be troubled before the face of him,
6 who is the father of the orphans, and judge of the widows: such is God in his holy place.
7 God settles the solitary in a house; leading forth prisoners mightily, also them that act provokingly, even them that dwell in tombs.
8 O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou wentest through the wilderness; (Pause).
9 the earth quaked, yea, the heavens dropped water at the presence of the God of Sina, at the presence of the God of Israel.
10 O God, thou wilt grant to thine inheritance a gracious rain; for it was weary, but thou didst refresh it.
11 Thy creatures dwell in it: thou hast in thy goodness prepared for the poor.
12 The Lord God will give a word to them that preach it in a great company.
13 The king of the forces of the beloved, of the beloved, will even grant them for the beauty of the house to divide the spoils.
14 Even if ye should lie among the lots, ye shall have the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her breast with yellow gold.
15 When the heavenly One scatters kings upon it, they shall be made snow-white in Selmon.
16 The mountain of God is a rich mountain; a swelling mountain, a rich mountain.
17 Wherefore do ye conceive evil, ye swelling mountains? this is the mountain which God has delighted to dwell in; yea, the Lord will dwell in it for ever.
18 The chariots of God are ten thousand fold, thousands of rejoicing ones: the Lord is among them, in Sina, in the holy place.
19 Thou art gone up on high, thou hast led captivity captive, thou hast received gifts for man, yea, for they were rebellious, that thou mightest dwell among them.
20 Blessed be the Lord God, blessed be the Lord daily; and the God of our salvation shall prosper us. (Pause).
21 Our God is the God of salvation; and to the Lord belong the issues from death.
22 But God shall crust the heads of his enemies; the hairy crown of them that go on in their trespasses.
23 The Lord said, I will bring again from Basan, I will bring my people again through the depths of the sea.
24 That thy foot may be dipped in blood, and the tongue of thy dogs be stained with that of thine enemies.
25 Thy goings, O God, have been seen; the goings of my God, the king, in the sanctuary.
26 The princes went first, next before the players on instruments, in the midst of damsels playing on timbrels.
27 Praise God in the congregations, the Lord from the fountains of Israel.
28 There is Benjamin the younger one in ecstasy, the princes of Juda their rulers, the princes of Zabulon, the princes of Nephthali.
29 O God, command thou thy strength: strengthen, O God, this which thou hast wrought in us.
30 Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents to thee.
31 Rebuke the wild beasts of the reed: let the crowd of bulls with the heifers of the nations be rebuked, so that they who have been proved with silver may not be shut out: scatter thou the nations that wish for wars.
32 Ambassadors shall arrive out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall hasten to stretch out her hand readily to God.
33 Sing to God, ye kingdoms of the earth; sing psalms to the Lord. (Pause).
34 Sing to God that rides on the heaven of heaven, eastward: lo, he will utter a mighty sound with his voice.
35 Give ye glory to God: his excellency is over Israel, and his power is in the clouds.
36 God is wonderful in his holy places, the God of Israel: he will give power and strength to his people: blessed be God.
For the end, a Psalm of David, for alternate strains.
2 Save me, O God; for the waters have come in to my soul.
3 I am stuck fast in deep mire, and there is no standing: I am come in to the depths of the sea, and a storm has overwhelmed me.
4 I am weary of crying, my throat has become hoarse; mine eyes have failed by my waiting on my God.
5 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head: my enemies that persecute me unrighteously are strengthened: then I restored that which I took not away.
6 O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my transgressions are not hidden from thee.
7 Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord of hosts, be ashamed on my account: let not them that seek thee, be ashamed on my account, O God of Israel.
8 For I have suffered reproach for thy sake; shame has covered my face.
9 I became strange to my brethren, and a stranger to my mother’s children.
10 For the zeal of thine house has eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
11 And I bowed down my soul with fasting, and that was made my reproach.
12 And I put on sackcloth for my covering; and I became a proverb to them.
13 They that sit in the gate talked against me, and they that drank wine sang against me.
14 But I will cry to thee, O Lord, in my prayer; O God, it is a propitious time: in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
15 Save me from the mire, that I stick not in it: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and from the deep waters.
16 Let not the waterflood drown me, nor let the deep swallow me up; neither let the well shut its mouth upon me.
17 Hear me, O Lord; for thy mercy is good: according to the multitude of thy compassions look upon me.
18 And turn not away thy face from thy servant; for I am afflicted: hear me speedily.
19 Draw nigh to my soul and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
20 For thou knowest my reproach, and my shame, and my confusion; all that afflict me are before thee.
21 My soul has waited for reproach and misery; and I waited for one to grieve with me, but there was none; and for one to comfort me, but I found none.
22 They gave me also gall for my food, and made me drink vinegar for my thirst.
23 Let their table before them be for a snare, and for a recompense, and for a stumbling-block.
24 Let their eyes be darkened that they should not see; and bow down their back continually.
25 Pour out thy wrath upon them, and let the fury of thine anger take hold on them.
26 Let their habitation be made desolate; and let there be no inhabitant in their tents:
27 Because they persecuted him whom thou hast smitten; and they have added to the grief of my wounds.
28 Add iniquity to their iniquity; and let them not come into thy righteousness.
29 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and let them not be written with the righteous.
30 I am poor and sorrowful; but the salvation of thy countenance has helped me.
31 I will praise the name of my God with a song, I will magnify him with praise;
32 and this shall please God more than a young calf having horns and hoofs.
33 Let the poor see and rejoice; seek the Lord diligently, and ye shall live.
34 For the Lord hears the poor, and does not set at nought his fettered ones.
35 Let the heavens and the earth raise him, the sea, and all things moving in them.
36 For God will save Sion, and the cities of Judea shall be built; and men shall dwell there, and inherit it.
37 And the seed of his servants shall possess it, and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
For the end, by David for a remembrance, that the Lord may save me.
2 O God, look to help me; O Lord, make haste to help me.
3 Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek my soul: let them be turned backward and put to shame, that wish me evil.
4 Let them that say to me, Aha, aha, be turned back and put to shame immediately.
5 Let all that seek thee exult and be glad in thee: and let those that love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
6 But I am poor and needy; O God, help me: thou art my helper and deliverer, O Lord, delay not.
By David, a Psalm sung by the sons of Jonadab, and the first that were taken captive.
O Lord, I have hoped in thee: let me never be put to shame.
2 In thy righteousness deliver me and rescue me: incline thine ear to me, and save me.
3 Be to me a protecting God, and a strong hold to save me: for thou art my fortress and my refuge.
4 Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the sinner, from the hand of the transgressor and unjust man.
5 For thou art my support, O Lord; O Lord, thou art my hope from my youth.
6 On thee have I been stayed from the womb: from the belly of my mother thou art my protector: of thee is my praise continually.
7 I am become as it were a wonder to many: but thou art my strong helper.
8 Let my mouth be filled with praise, that I may hymn thy glory, and thy majesty all the day.
9 Cast me not off at the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength fails.
10 For mine enemies have spoken against me; and they that lay wait for my soul have taken counsel together,
11 saying, God has forsaken him: persecute ye and take him; for there is none to deliver him.
12 O God, go not far from me, O my God, draw nigh to my help.
13 Let those that plot against my soul be ashamed and utterly fail: let those that seek my hurt be clothed with shame and dishonour.
14 But I will hope continually, and will praise thee more and more.
15 My mouth shall declare thy righteousness openly, and thy salvation all the day; for I am not acquainted with the affairs of men.
16 I will go on in the might of the Lord: O Lord, I will make mention of thy righteousness only.
17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth, and until now will I declare thy wonders;
18 even until I am old and advanced in years. O God, forsake me not; until I shall have declared thine arm to all the generation that is to come:
19 even thy power and thy righteousness, O God, up to the highest heavens, even the mighty works which thou has done: O God, who is like to thee?
20 What afflictions many and sore hast thou shewed me! yet thou didst turn and quicken me, and broughtest me again from the depths of the earth.
21 Thou didst multiply thy righteousness, and didst turn and comfort me, and broughtest me again out of the depths of the earth.
22 I will also therefore give thanks to thee, O God, because of thy truth, on an instrument of psalmody: I will sing psalms to thee on the harp, O Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips shall rejoice when I sing to thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
24 Moreover also my tongue shall dwell all the day upon thy righteousness; when they shall be ashamed and confounded that seek my hurt.
O God, give thy judgment to the king, and thy righteousness to the king’s son;
2 that he may judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
3 Let the mountains and the hills raise peace to thy people:
4 he shall judge the poor of the people in righteousness, and save the children of the needy; and shall bring low the false accuser.
5 And he shall continue as long as the sun, and before the moon for ever.
6 He shall come down as rain upon a fleece; and as drops falling upon the earth.
7 In his days shall righteousness spring up; and abundance of peace till the moon be removed.
8 And he shall have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth.
9 The Ethiopians shall fall down before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tharsis, and the isles, shall bring presents: the kings of the Arabians and Saba shall offer gifts.
11 And all kings shall worship him; all the Gentiles shall serve him.
12 For he has delivered the poor from the oppressor; and the needy who had no helper.
13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall deliver the souls of the needy.
14 He shall redeem their souls from usury and injustice: and their name shall be precious before him.
15 And he shall live, and there shall be given him of the gold of Arabia: and men shall pray for him continually; and all the day shall they praise him.
16 There shall be an establishment on the earth on the tops of the mountains: the fruit thereof shall be exalted above Libanus, and they of the city shall flourish as grass of the earth.
17 Let his name be blessed for ever: his name shall endure longer than the sun: and all the tribes of the earth shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
18 Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, who alone does wonders.
19 And blessed is his glorious name for ever, even for ever and ever: and all the earth shall be filled with his glory. So be it, so be it.
The hymns of David the son of Jessae are ended.
A Psalm for Asaph.
How good is God to Israel, to the upright in heart!
2 But my feet were almost overthrown; my goings very nearly slipped.
3 For I was jealous of the transgressors, beholding the tranquility of sinners.
4 For there is no sign of reluctance in their death: and they have firmness under their affliction.
5 They are not in the troubles of other men; and they shall not be scourged with other men.
6 Therefore pride has possessed them; they have clothed themselves with their injustice and ungodliness.
7 Their injustice shall go forth as out of fatness: they have fulfilled their intention.
8 They have taken counsel and spoken in wickedness: they have uttered unrighteousness loftily.
9 They have set their mouth against heaven, and their tongue has gone through upon the earth.
10 Therefore shall my people return hither: and full days shall be found with them.
11 And they said, How does God know? and is there knowledge in the Most High?
12 Behold, these are the sinners, and they that prosper always: they have possessed wealth.
13 And I said, Verily in vain have I justified my heart, and washed my hands in innocency.
14 For I was plagued all the day, and my reproof was every morning.
15 If I said, I will speak thus; behold, I should have broken covenant with the generation of thy children.
16 And I undertook to understand this, but it is too hard for me,
17 until I go into the sanctuary of God; and so understand the latter end.
18 Surely thou hast appointed judgments to them because of their crafty dealings: thou hast cast them down when they were lifted up.
19 How have they become desolate! suddenly they have failed: they have perished because of their iniquity.
20 As the dream of one awakening, O Lord, in thy city thou wilt despise their image.
21 For my heart has rejoiced, and my reins have been gladdened.
22 But I was vile and knew not: I became brutish before thee.
23 Yet I am continually with thee: thou hast holden my right hand.
24 Thou hast guided me by thy counsel, and thou hast taken me to thyself with glory.
25 For what have I in heaven but thee? and what have I desired upon the earth beside thee?
26 My heart and my flesh have failed: but God is the strength of my heart, and God is my portion for ever.
27 For, behold, they that remove themselves far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed every one that goes a whoring from thee.
28 But it is good for me to cleave close to God, to put my trust in the Lord; that I may proclaim all thy praises in the gates of the daughter of Sion.
A Psalm of instruction for Asaph.
Wherefore hast thou rejected us, O God, for ever? wherefore is thy wrath kindled against the sheep of thy pasture?
2 Remember thy congregation which thou hast purchased from the beginning; thou didst ransom the rod of thine inheritance; this mount Sion wherein thou hast dwelt.
3 Lift up thine hands against their pride continually; because of all that the enemy has done wickedly in thy holy places.
4 And they that hate thee have boasted in the midst of thy feast; they have set up their standards for signs,
5 ignorantly as it were in the entrance above;
6 they cut down its doors at once with axes as in a wood of trees; they have broken it down with hatchet and stone cutter.
7 They have burnt thy sanctuary with fire to the ground; they have profaned the habitation of thy name.
8 They have said in their heart, even all their kindred together, Come, let us abolish the feasts of the Lord from the earth.
9 We have not seen our signs; there is no longer a prophet; and God will not know us any more.
10 How long, O God, shall the enemy reproach? shall the enemy provoke thy name forever?
11 Wherefore turnest thou away thine hand, and thy right hand from the midst of thy bosom for ever?
12 But God is our King of old; he has wrought salvation in the midst of the earth.
13 Thou didst establish the sea, in thy might, thou didst break to pieces the heads of the dragons in the water.
14 Thou didst break to pieces the heads of the dragon; thou didst give him for meat to the Ethiopian nations.
15 Thou didst cleave fountains and torrents; thou driedst up mighty rivers.
16 The day is thine, and the night is thine; thou hast prepared the sun and the moon.
17 Thou hast made all the borders of the earth; thou hast made summer and spring.
18 Remember this thy creation: an enemy has reproached the Lord, and a foolish people has provoked thy name.
19 Deliver not to the wild beasts a soul that gives praise to thee: forget not for ever the souls of thy poor.
20 Look upon thy covenant: for the dark places of the earth are filled with the habitations of iniquity.
21 let not the afflicted and shamed one be rejected: the poor and needy shall praise thy name.
22 Arise, O God, plead thy cause: remember thy reproaches that come from the foolish one all the day.
23 Forget not the voice of thy suppliants: let the pride of them that hate thee continually ascend before thee.
For the end, Destroy not, a Psalm of a Song for Asaph.
2 We will give thanks to thee, O God, we will give thanks, and call upon thy name:
3 I will declare all thy wonderful works. When I shall take a set time, I will judge righteously.
4 The earth is dissolved, and all that dwell in it: I have strengthened its pillars. (Pause).
5 I said unto the transgressors, Do not transgress; and to the sinners, Lift not up the horn.
6 Lift not up your horn on high; speak not unrighteousness against God.
7 For good comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert mountains.
8 For God is the judge; he puts down one, and raises up another.
9 For there is a cup in the hand of the Lord, full of unmingled wine; and he has turned it from side to side, but its dregs have not been wholly poured out; all the sinners of the earth shall drink them.
10 But I will exult for ever: I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. And I will break all the horns of sinners; but the horns of the righteous one shall be exalted.
For the end, among the Hymns, a Psalm for Asaph; a Song for the Assyrian.
2 God is known in Judea: his name is great in Israel.
3 And his place has been in peace, and his dwelling-place in Sion.
4 There he broke the power of the bows, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. (Pause).
5 Thou dost wonderfully shine forth from the everlasting mountains.
6 All the simple ones in heart were troubled; all the men of wealth have slept their sleep, and have found nothing in their hands.
7 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, the riders on horses slumbered.
8 Thou art terrible; and who shall withstand thee, because of thine anger?
9 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
10 when God arose to judgment, to save all the meek in heart. (Pause).
11 For the inward thought of man shall give thanks to thee: and the memorial of his inward thought shall keep a feast to thee.
12 Vow, and pay your vows to the Lord our God; all that are round about him shall bring gifts,
13 even to him that is terrible, and that takes away the spirits of princes; to him that is terrible among the kings of the earth.
