Psalm 113

1: Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.
2: Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.
3: From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised.
4: The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5: Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
6: Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
7: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
8: That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
9: He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 114

1: When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
2: Judah was his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
3: The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.
4: The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs.
5: What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? thou Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
6: Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams; and ye little hills, like lambs?
7: Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
8: Which turned the rock into a standing water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Psalm 115

1: Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
2: Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
3: But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
4: Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5: They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8: They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
9: O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
10: O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
11: Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
12: The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of
Aaron.
13: He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
14: The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
15: Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
16: The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
17: The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
18: But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.

Psalm 116

1: I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2: Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3: The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
4: Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
5: Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
6: The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
7: Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8: For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9: I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10: I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
11: I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12: What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
13: I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
14: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
15: Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16: O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
17: I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
18: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
19: In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.

Psalm 117

1: O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
2: For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

2: Let Israel now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
3: Let the house of Aaron now say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
4: Let them now that fear the LORD say, that his mercy endureth for ever.
5: I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.
6: The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
7: The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.
8: It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
9: It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princes.
10: All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.
11: They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.
12: They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will
destroy them.
13: Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the LORD helped me.
14: The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.
15: The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LORD doeth
valiantly.
16: The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
17: I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.
18: The LORD hath chastened me sore: but he hath not given me over unto death.
19: Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
20: This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter.
21: I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation.
22: The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
23: This is the LORD's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
24: This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25: Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
26: Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.
27: God is the LORD, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.
28: Thou art my God, and I will praise thee: thou art my God, I will exalt thee.
29: O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
