136:23Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:
136:24And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:25Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.
136:26O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.
137:1By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
137:2We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
137:3For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
137:4How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?
137:5If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
137:6If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
137:7Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.
137:8O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
137:9Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
138:1(A Psalm of David.) I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.
138:2I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
138:3In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
138:4All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
138:5Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.
138:6Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
138:7Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
138:8The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
139:1(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
139:2Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
139:3Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
139:4For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
139:5Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
139:6Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
139:7Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
139:8If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
139:9If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
139:10Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
139:11If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
139:12Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
139:13For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
139:14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
139:15My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
139:16Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
139:17How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
139:18If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
139:19Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
139:20For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
139:21Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
139:22I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
139:23Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
139:24And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
140:1(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
140:2Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
140:3They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
140:4Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
140:5The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.
