Psalm 64-67 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer:
preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked;
from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3 who whet their tongue like a sword,
and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 that they may shoot in secret at the perfect:
suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter:
they commune of laying snares privily;
they say, Who shall see them?
6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search:
both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them
with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves:
all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God;
for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and shall trust in him;
and all the upright in heart shall glory.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David.
1 Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion:
and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
2 O thou that hearest prayer,
unto thee shall all flesh come.
3 Iniquities prevail against me:
as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.
4 Blessed is the man whom thou choosest,
and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts:
we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation;
who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth,
and of them that are afar off upon the sea:
6 which by his strength setteth fast the mountains;
being girded with power:
7 which stilleth the noise of the seas,
the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at thy tokens:
thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it:
thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water:
thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly:
thou settlest the furrows thereof:
thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with thy goodness;
and thy paths drop fatness.
12 They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness:
and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks;
the valleys also are covered over with corn;
they shout for joy, they also sing.
To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm.
1 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
2 sing forth the honour of his name:
make his praise glorious.
3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works!
through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee;
they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
5 Come and see the works of God:
he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
6 He turned the sea into dry land:
they went through the flood on foot:
there did we rejoice in him.
7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations:
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8 O bless our God, ye people,
and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
9 which holdeth our soul in life,
and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
10 For thou, O God, hast proved us:
thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
11 Thou broughtest us into the net;
thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads;
we went through fire and through water:
but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings:
I will pay thee my vows,
14 which my lips have uttered,
and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams;
I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16 Come and hear, all ye that fear God,
and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
17 I cried unto him with my mouth,
and he was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I regard iniquity in my heart,
the Lord will not hear me:
19 but verily God hath heard me;
he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God,
which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song.
1 God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
2 That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.
3 Let the people praise thee, O God;
let all the people praise thee.
4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy:
for thou shalt judge the people righteously,
and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
5 Let the people praise thee, O God;
let all the people praise thee.
6 Then shall the earth yield her increase;
and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us;
and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
