Rise Jehovah in thine ire,
So th' assemblies of each nation
Judge me Lord, be judge in this
But the just establish fast,
God is a just judge and severe,

He digg’d a pit, and delv'd it deep,
PSA L. VIII. Aug. 14. 1653. . n Jehovah our Lord, how wondrous great
And glorious is thy name thro’all the earth! So as above the Heav'ns thy praise to set
Out of the tender mouths of latest birth.
Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou 5
Hast founded strength because of all thy foes, To stint th' enemy, and slack th' avenger's brow,
That bends his rage thy providence to' oppose.
When I behold thy Heav'ns, thy fingers art,
The moon and stars which thou so bright haft set In the pure firmament, then saith my heart, II
O what is man that thou remembrest yet,
And think'st upon him; or of man begot,
That him thou visit'st, and of him art found? Scarce to be less than Gods, thou mad'st his lot, 15
With honor and with state thou hast him crown'd.
O’er the works of thy hand thou mad'st him Lord,
Thou hast put all under his lordly feet, All flocks, and herds, by thy commanding word,
All beasts that in the field or forest meet. 20
Fowl of the Heav'ns, and fish that through the wet
Sea paths in shoals do slide, and know no dearth. O Jehovah our Lord, how wond'rous great
And glorious is thy name through all the earth!

PS A L. LXXX.
1 Give ear in time of need, Who leddest like a flock of sheep
Thy loved Joseph's seed,
. Between their wings out-spread,
And on our foes thy dread. 2 In Ephraim's view and Benjamin's,
And in Manasse's sight, Awake * thy strength, come, and be seen *Gnorera.
To save us by thy might.
To us, O God, vouchsafe ;
15 · And then we shall be safe. 4 Lord God of Hosts, how long wilt thou,
How long wilt thou declare Thy * smoking wrath, and angry brow *Gnashanta. O o 2
Against thy people's prayer! 5 Thou feed'st them with the bread of tears,
Their bread with tears they eat, And mak'st them * largely drink the tears * Shalish.
Wherewith their cheeks are wet. 6 A flrife thou mak'st us and a prey - 25
To every neighbor foe,
And + flouts at us they throw. + Jilgnagu. 7 Return us, and thy grace divine
O God of Hosts vouchsafe,
And then we shall be safe.
Thy free love made it thine,
To plant this lovely vine.
And root it deep and fast, That it began to grow apace,
And fillid the land at last.
The hills were over-spread,
Advanc'd their lofty head.
Down to the sea she sent, And upward to that river wide
