That stand in the house of the LORD in the
night seasons. 2 Lift up your hands to the sanctuary,
And bless ye the LORD.
3 The LORD bless thee out of Zion;
Even He that made heaven and earth.
Song of Zion
137 There we sat down, yea, we wept,
By the rivers of Babylon, When we remembered Zion. 2 Upon the willows in the midst thereof
We hanged up our harps. 3 For there they that led us captive asked of
us words of song,
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion.'
In a foreign land? 5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
Let my right hand forget her cunning. 6 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my

For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
139 For the Leader.
O LORD, Thou hast searched me, and known
2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine up
rising, Thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou measurest my going about and my
lying down, And art acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue,
But, lo, O LORD, Thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast hemmed me in behind and be
fore, And laid Thy hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
Too high, I cannot attain unto it. 7 Whither shall I go from Thy spirit?
Or whither shall I flee from Thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, Thou art there; If I make my bed in the nether-world, be
hold, Thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the
sea; 10 Even there would Thy hand lead me,
And Thy right hand would hold me. 11 And if I say: 'Surely the darkness shall en
velop me, And the light about me shall be night'; 12 Even the darkness is not too dark for Thee,
But the night shineth as the day;
In the Cave
Maschil of David, when he was in the cave; a Prayer.
2 With my voice I cry unto the LORD; With my voice I make supplication unto
the LORD. 3 I pour out my complaint before Him,
I declare before Him my trouble;
Thou knowest my path-
Have they hidden a snare for me. 5 Look on my right hand, and see,
For there is no man that knoweth me;
6 I have cried unto Thee, O LORD;
I have said: “Thou art my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.' 7 Attend unto my cry;
For I am brought very low;
For they are too strong for me. 8 Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may give thanks unto Thy name;
cause of me;
A Plea for Deliverance
A Psalm of David. 143 O LORD, hear my prayer, give ear to my
supplications; In Thy faithfulness answer me, and in Thy

3 For the enemy hath persecuted my soul;
He hath crushed my life down to the ground;
as those that have been long dead. 4 And my spirit fainteth within me;
My heart within me is appalled. 5 I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Thy doing;
I muse on the work of Thy hands. 6 I spread forth my hands unto Thee; My soul (thirsteth] after Thee, as a weary land.
7 Answer me speedily, O LORD,
My spirit faileth;
8 Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the
morning, For in Thee do I trust; Cause me to know the way wherein I should
walk, For unto Thee have I lifted up my soul.
9 Deliver me from mine enemies, O LORD;
With Thee have I hidden myself. 10 Teach me to do Thy will,
For Thou art my God;
Lead me in an even land. 11 For Thy name's sake, O LORD, quicken me; In Thy righteousness bring my soul out of
trouble. 12 And in Thy mercy cut off mine enemies,
And destroy all them that harass my soul;
Against the Treacherous
144 [A Psalm] of David.
Blessed be the Lord my Rock,
And my fingers for battle;
My high tower, and my deliverer;
3 LORD, what is man, that Thou takest knowl
edge of him? Or the son of man, that Thou makest ac
count of him? 4 Man is like unto a breath;
His days are as a shadow that passeth away. 5 O LORD, bow Thy heavens, and come down;
Touch the mountains, that they may smoke. 6 Cast forth lightning, and scatter them;
Send out Thine arrows, and discomfit them. 7 Stretch forth Thy hands from on high; Rescue me, and deliver me out of many
waters, Out of the hand of strangers; 8 Whose mouth speaketh falsehood,
