PSALM III. AUGUST 9, 1653.-When he fled from Absalom.
Hast broke the teeth. This help was from the Lord;
PSALM IV. AUGUST 10, 1653.
ANSWER me when I call,
b My sustain.
The verb converted into a substantive.-TODD.
My glory have in scorn?
To love, to seek, to prize,
Things false and vain, and nothing else but lies?
Yet know, the Lord hath chose,
Chose to himself apart,
The good and meek of heart;
(For whom to choose He knows)
Jehovah from on high
Will hear my voice, what time to him I cry.
Be awed and do not sin;
Speak to your hearts alone,
Upon your beds each one,
PSALM V. AUGUST 12, 1653.
JEHOVAH, to my words give ear,
My meditation weigh;
The voice of my complaining hear,
Shalt in the morning hear;
In the morning I to thee with choice
Will rank my prayers, and watch till thou appear.
In wickedness delight;
Evil with thee no biding makes;
Fools or mad men, stand not within thy sight.
Thou hatest, and them unblest
Thou wilt destroy that speak a lie;
The bloody and guileful man God doth detest.
Thy numerous mercies, go
Into thy house; I, in thy fear,
Will towards thy holy temple worship low.
Lead me, because of those
That do observe if I transgress;
Set thy ways right before, where my step goes.
No word is firm or sooth c;
Their inside, troubles miserable;
An open grave their throat, their tongue they smoothe.
By their own counsels quell'd;
Still on; for against thee they have rebell'd.
Their joy; while thou from blame
And shall triumph in thee, who love thy name.
To bless the just man still;
As with a shield, thou wilt surround Him with thy lasting favour and goodwill.
PSALM VI. AUGUST 13, 1653.
LORD, in thine anger do not reprehend me,
And very weak and faint; heal and amend me :
Are troubled; yea, my soul is troubled sore;
And thou, O Lord, how long? Turn, Lord; restore
Who in the grave can celebrate thy praise ?
c Sooth is true.-T. WARTON.
d Deject. Dejected.-TODD.
Through grief consumes, is waxen old and dark
In the midst of all mine enemies that mark.
Depart, all ye that work iniquity,
Depart from me; for the voice of my weeping
The Lord hath heard; the Lord hath heard my prayer;
The Lord will own, and have me in his keeping.
With much confusion; then, grown red with shame,
And in a moment shall be quite abash'd.
PSALM VII. AUGUST 14, 1653.
Upon the words of Chush the Benjamite against him.
LORD, my God, to thee I fly;
Lord, my God, if I have thought
Be in my hands; if I have wrought
Let the enemy pursue my soul,
In the dust; and there, outspread,
Rise, Jehovah, in thine ire,
So the assemblies of each nation
All people from the world's foundation.
Judge me, Lord; be judge in this
Upon me cause at length to cease
But the just establish fast,
Since thou art the just God that tries
God is a just judge and severe,
His sword he whets, his bow hath bended
The tools of death, that waits him near.
His arrows purposely made he
For them that persecute. Behold,
He digg'd a pit, and delved it deep,
And fell into the pit he made:
His mischief, that due course doth keep,
Of violence will, undelay'd,
Fall on his crown with ruin steep.
Then will I Jehovah's praise
PSALM VIII. AUGUST 14, 1653.
O JEHOVAH, Our Lord, how wondrous great
Out of the tender mouths of latest birth.
Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou
