SIng to ye LORD for he excells
in glorious renown:
He hath the horse & cavaleer▪
into the sea [...]ast down.
2 JAH is my strength, & song, & he
is my salvation:
My God hee is, I'le him prepare
an habitation.
My Fathers God hee is also
I'l [...] him exalt, the s [...]me.
3 Je [...]vah is a man of w [...]rr

most [...] is [...]
LORD thy [...]
those [...] thee [...]
7 And in thine excellency great▪
thou h [...]st o're-thrown thy fo [...]s▪
Thou didst send forth thy wrath which as▪
the stuble did them wast.
8 Together gathered were the waves
ev'n with thy nosthrills blast▪
The [...]ouds stood upright as an heap
the depths in mid-Sea froze.
9 The foe said▪ I'le pursue, I'le catch▪
I will the spoil dispose.
My lust on them shall filled bee▪
my sword draw out will I,
My hand shall them again possess,
or stroy them utterly▪
10 Thou with thy wind didst on them blow,
the Sea them covered:
They in the mighty waters sunck,
as if they had been lead.
11 LORD who's like thee among the Gods▪
who's like thee▪ glorious
In holiness, fearfull in prayse,
in doings m [...]rvelous!
12 When thou didst forth thy right hād stretch
the earth them swallowed.

They shall ly still as doth a stone,
untill thy people pass▪
Untill thy people LORD shall pass▪
which thou hast purchased.
17 Till thou hast brought them in▪ & till
thou them hast stablished▪
In mount of thine inheritance
O LORD the place wherin
Thou hast prepar'd thy Sanctuary
for thee to dwell therin.
LORD which thy hands established
18 Jehovah he shall reigne
For evermore through ages all,
for ever Soveraigne.
19 For Pharaohs horse, & charrots his▪
and horsmen down they went;
Into the Sea, Jehovah then
the Sea upon them sent:
The waters of the Sea on them
he turned back in hast
But on drie land in midst of Sea
the sonns of Israel past▪
Miri [...]ms Answer.
21 Sing to the LORD for he excells
in glorious renown:
Hee hath the horse, & cavallier

¶ The Propheticall Song of Moses. Deut 32.

O [...] heav'ns give ye attentive eare▪
[...]o what I shall declare:
And also thou O earth shalt heare,
what my mouths sayings are▪
2 My doctrine like the rain shall drop
my speech distill shall as
The dew [...]as [...]ain on tender heaths.
and like the showres on grass.
3 Becaus that I Jehovahs name
will publish all abroad:
See that ye greatness atribute
therfore unto our God.
4 That ROCK his work most perfect is:
for's wayes all judgment bee:
A God of truth▪ an [...] without sin,
both just and right is hee.
5 But they defil'd them selves, their spot
is not his childrens stain▪
A crooked generation they
and froward do remain.
6 O foolish people and unwise▪
the LORD thus pay do yee▪
Thy Father that th [...]e bought, & made▪
and stablisht is not hee▪
7 Remember dayes of old, the yeares
of every age marke well;
Thy father ask▪ and he'l thee shew:
thine elders will thee tell.
[Page]8 When as the highest shar'd their lots
unto the nations.
When as the seperation hee
did make of Adams sons:
The borders of the people hee
did set where they should dwell:
According to the number of
the sonns of Israel.
9 Becaus Jehovahs portion
his chosen people bee.
The lot of his inheritance
Jacobs posterity.
10 He found him in a desart [...]and▪
and i'th vast deserts cry:
He led him round, him taught▪ him kept
as th'apple of his ey.
11 As th'eagle stirreth up her nest▪
and [...]l [...]tters o're her young▪
Spreads out her wings▪ & takes them up▪
beares them her wings upon.
12 Ev'n in such wise Jehovah led
him up and down alone:
A [...] God [...]lso with him
[...] any one.
13 [...] pl [...]ces of the earth
14 [...]
[Page]Hee from y flinty rock likewise
did make him oyle to take.
14 On butter thou of kine▪ & on
the milk of sheep didst feed:
With fat of lambs, & goates, & rams▪
that were of Bashans breed:
Together with the fatness of
the wheaten kidneies fi [...]e:
Thou of ye grapes didst also drink
the blood, refined wine.
[...] But Je [...]urun then waxed fat
and wantonly did kick:
Thou art grown fat▪ thou gross art gro [...]
art clos'd with fatness thick.
Then he forsook the mighty God▪
who had him mag [...]'d
The Rock of his salvation
hee also vilifi'd.
16. They with strange Gods his jealousie
did kind [...]e as a [...]:
And with abominations
they did provoke his ire▪
1 [...] They did to divills not to God
their sacrifices there.
To Go [...]s unknown, new up-startes, whom
your fath [...]rs did not feare.
18 T [...] ROCK who thee begotten hath
ten [...] h [...]st thou not:
The [...]ghty God who formed thee
[...] forgot.
[Page]19 And this Jehovah [...] ▪ and hee
dispising them did lo [...]th.
Becaus of the provo [...]king of
his sons & daughters [...]
20 He said I'le [...] from them
what is their and I'le see:
For they a very froward race,
they faithless children be [...].
21 With that which is no God they have
mee mov'd to jealousie▪
The have provoaked me to wrath
with Idols [...]:
With what's no people I'le provoak
them unto jealousie:
Them with a foolish nation
to anger move will I▪
22 For fyre [...] in [...] wrath
shall b [...]rn to hell below:
And wast the earth with her increas
hils bottoms free also.
23 I mischiefs will upon them heap.
[...]ine arrowes on them spend:
With hunger burnt, with he [...] devo [...].
with bitter plagues them end.
24 The [...]eth of cruell beasts I will
upon them send also:
The poyson of the serpents too
which on the [...] do go.
25 The sword without & [...] within▪
young men and maids bereave:
[Page]Which neither shall ye sucking babe▪
nor hoar [...]e headed leave.
26 And into corners, I did say
that I would scatter them:
I'le their remembrance make to ceas
from 'mongst the sons of men.
27 But yt I fear'd their enemies wrath:
their foes there it would strange▪
And say our high hand not y LORD
it is, wrought all this change.
28 For they'r a Nation counselless
nor understanding find.
29 O [...] were they wise: this understood!
their latter end would mind!
30 How should one chase a thousand, two
ten thous [...]nd put to flight▪
Had not their Rock them sold & them
Jehovah shut up quite.
31 Becaus their Rock unto our ROCK
[...]s no [...] to be compar'd:
Yea though our enemies themselves
as ju [...]ges should be heard.
32 For their Vine is of Sodoms Vine▪
and of Gomorrahs field:
Their [...] of g [...]ll, to them
they bitter clusters yield.
33 Their wi [...]e as Dragons poyson is▪
[...] Adders cruell [...]ll.
34 Is not this stor'd with me, & se [...]ld
amongst my treasures all:
35 Vengeance is mine & recompen [...]e
in time their foot shall slide:
For their woe-day is nigh & soon
mishaps shall them be-tide.
36 Becaus ye LORD his folk shall judge▪
for's servants too repent:
When none shut up or left he seeth▪
and that their powr is spent.
37 And he shall say those Gods of theirs▪
now where becom are they:
Where is ye Rock, on whom they did
their expectation stay?
38 Which [...] their sacrifices fat.
dr [...]nk their wine-off [...]ings too▪
Let them arise, help you & bee
a hiding place for you.
39 See now that I▪ even I am hee
and ther's no God with mee:
I kill & quicken, wound, & heal,
none from my h [...]nd c [...]n free.
40 For I to heaven lift mine han [...]:
and s [...]y I live for [...]ve.
41 If my bright sword I wher & if
my hand on judgement st [...]y:
I'le render vengeance to my [...]
I'le [...]
42 I'le m [...]ke mine [...] with blood
& flesh my [...]
For blood of sl [...]in & of them that
are in c [...]ptivity:
[Page]More then from first revenges were.
upon the enemy.
43 Sing joyfully yee Nations, with
those that his people bee;
Because that of his servants all
revenge y blood will hee▪
And to his adversaries bee
will [...]nder vengeance due
And hee will mercy to his land
and to his people shew.

¶ THE SONG OF DEBORAH AND BARAK. Judg: 5. Then Sang Deborah & Barak the Son of A [...]oam on that day Saying.

IN that he Israel hath reveng'd
bless yee therfore ye LORD.
[...] that the people offered
themselves of free accord.
3 Give ear [...] Kings, yee Princes hear▪
sing to the LORD I will:
I even I'le sing to the LORD,
the God of Israel.
4 LORD whē thou wē [...]st frō S [...]i [...], when thou
didst [...] feild:
The earth did [...] ▪ y heav'ns did drop.
th [...] [...] distild.
5 Before y presence [...]f ye LORD
[...] melting fell:
Even [...] y LORD
the God of Israel.
6 In dayes of Sh [...]mgar Anaths son
high wayes in J [...]els dayes
Untrodden were; the passengers
did travell through by-wayes▪
7 The villagers did cease to bee▪
they ceas'd in Israel;
Till that I Deborah▪ rose I rose
a moth'r in Israel.
8 New Gods they chose, then wars a­rose▪
& in ye gates have been:
'Mongst fourty thousand Israelites
was sheild, or spear then seen?
9 My heart to Israels Rulers is,
that did of free accord,
Present themselves amongst ye folk:
bless ye therfore the Lord.
10 Speak ye your minds, all ye yt doe
upon white asses ride:
Yee that in judgment [...], & yee
th [...]t walk the way beside.
11 Who from ye archers noi [...]e were freed
there [...] they now record.
In p [...]ces where they waters [...]
the just acts of y LORD.
His rightous acts to them that dwell
in Isr [...]els townes [...]:
Then [...] the people of y LORD
goe down unto the [...].
12 Wake, wake, [...], wake awake
a song sing: Barak [...]
[Page]Abinoams son, & captive lead
thou thy captivityes.
13 Unto y remnant hee gave rule
above the Nobles then.
Amongst ye folk the LORD gave mee
rule over mighty m [...]n.
14 From out of Ephraim a root,
'gainst Amalek there was:
Thy followers O Benjamin,
amongst thy folk did pass.
From out of Machi [...] governours
descended also then:
And out of Zebulon came they
that handle writers pen.
15 And Issachar▪ even Issachar
his peeres with Deborah went:
And also Barak was on foot
into the valley sent,
Because of those divisions that
in Reuben did appear,
Full many great impressions
of heart amongst us were.
16 Why didst thou 'mongst ye sheepfolds stay
the ble [...]ting flocks to he [...]r
For Reuben his divisions▪
heart searchings great there were.
17 Gil [...]d by Jordan [...] why
[...] in ships reside▪
On [...]
and in his [...].
18 Both Zebulun▪ & Nephthali
[...] people that did yield.
Their lives in danger unto death
upon the open field.
19 The Kings came & they fought then fought
the Kings of Canaan▪
In Taanach by Migiddo's streames:
no money▪ gain they wan.
20 From heav'n they fought, y stars by course
did fight 'gainst Sis [...]ra.
21 Then Kishons brook, old Kishōs brook
that brook them swept away.
O thou my soule hast trod down strength.
22 Then broke their hors hoofs were.
By plunging pransings, pransings of
their mighty horses there.
23 Curse Meroz, curse her dwellers, curse▪
Jehovahs Angel said:
For they came not to aid the LORD▪
'gainst might ye LORD to aid.
24 Jael y Kenite Hebers wife
'bove women blest shall bee:
Above the women in the tent,
a blessed one is shee.
25 Hee water askt, shee gave him milk▪
in Lordly dish shee fetcht
26 Him butter forth; unto ye nayle
shee forth her left hand stretcht.
Her right hand to ye workmans maul,
and Sisera hammered:
[Page]Shee peirc't & struck his temples through
& then cut off his head.
27 He at her feet bow'd, fell, lay down,
hee at her feet bow'd where
Hee fell; wheras hee bowed down▪
hee fell destroyed there.
28 Out of a window Sisera
his mother look't, & said,
The lat [...]ess through, in cōming why
so long's his charriot staid:
His charrets wheeles, why tarry they:
29 Her wise dames answered;
Yea shee turn'd answer to her selfe,
30 And what have they not sped:
The prey by poll a maid or twain
what parted have not they:
Have they not parted Sisera
a partie coloured prey:
A party coloured nield-work prey
of nield-work on each side,
That's party colloured, meet for necks
of them y spoiles divide:
31 So perish let thine enemies all
O LORD: but let each wight
That doe him love be like ye Sun
that goes out in his might.

¶ THE SONG OF HANNAH 1 Sam: 2. And Hannah prayed & s [...]id

MY heart doth in Jehovah joy▪
my horn in Jah is lift on high:
My mouth inlarg'd is o're my foe:
For in thy health rejoice doe I.
2 Like to ye LORD ther's holy none:
Because there is none else but thee:
And other rock there is not one.
That to our God compar'd may bee.
3 Speak ye out no presumpteous word,
No harshnes from your mouth proceed.
For God of knowledge is ye LORD
Also by him are actions weigh'd.
4 The strong mens bowes are shivered
And they yt slipt are girt with might:
5 The full have hir'd thēselves for bread
And ceased hath ye hungry wight.
So that ye barren seaven bare.
The fruitfull woman▪ weak is grown.
6 The LORD doth kill, & life doth spar [...]
He lifts up & to grave brings down.
7 The LORD both poor and rich doth make
He raiseth up, & bringeth low.
8 The poor he up from dust doth take.
The beggar lifes the dunghil fro:
To give them place with princely lords
To make them heirs of glories throne:
For th'earths foundatiōs are the LORDS
And he hath set the world theron.
9 His holie ones [...]heir feet he will
I reserve so▪ that they shall not fall:
The vile in darkness shall be still.
[Page]For no man shall by strength prevail.
10 The adversaries of the LORD
Shall broken be to pieces small.
And he from heaven shall accord.
To thunder forth upon them all.
The borders of the earth the LORD
Shall justly judge and he likewise
Unto his King shall strength afford:
And make his Ointeds horn to rise.

Davids Elegie: 2 Sam 1.17. And David lamented with this lamenta­tion over Saul & [...]ver Jonathan his son.

19 UPon thy places high is slaine
the flower of Israel.
How are the mighty fallen down.
20 In Gath this never tell.
Nor shew't in streets of Askelon,
lest Philistines rejoice:
Lest daughters of th'uncircumciz'd
should make triumphant noise.
21 Yee mountaines high of Gilboah
let there be never dew.
Nor raine, nor fields of offerings,
let ever be on you.
For there the mighty one his shield
receiv'd disgracefull foile,
The shield of Saul as he had not
anointed been with oile:
22 The bow of Jon'than did not turn
back from the blood o'th slain▪
From fat o'th mighty, and Sauls sword
did not return in vain.
23 Most lovely Saul and Jonathan▪
and pleasant did abide.
While they did live, & in their death
them nothing did divide.
They swifter then the Eagles were.
they Lyons did excel,
24 In strength▪ O weep yee over Saul
daughters of Israel:
[...] did in Scarlet you array▪
with deckings manifold:
Who did on your apparrell lay
The ornaments of gold.
25 In middest of the battle how
the mighty fallen lye▪
O Jonathan cut off wast thou
upon thy places high▪
26 O thou my brother Jonathan
I am distrest for thee:
A loving kind, companion
thou hast been unto mee:
Thy love to mee in wonder past
the love of women far.
27 How are the mighty fall'n and w [...]st
the weapons be of war!



O Blessed man yt walks not in
th'advice of wicked men
Nor stādeth in ye sin̄ers way
nor scorners seat sits in▪
But he upō Jehovah's law
doth set his whole delight
And in his law doth medi­tate
both in the day & night.
3 He shall be like a pla [...]ted tree
by water brookes, which shall
In his due season yield his fruit,
whose leafe shall never fall:
And all he doth shall prosper well.
4 The wicked are not so:
But they are like unto the chaff▪
which wind drives too & fro.
5 Therfore shall not ungodly men
in judgment stand upright▪
Not in th'assembly of [...]he just
shall stand the sinfull wight.
[Page 2]6 For of the righteous men, the LORD
acknowledgeth the way:
Wher [...]s the way of wicked men
shall utterly decay.


WHy rage the heathen furiously▪
vain things the people muse:
2 Kings of ye earth doe set themselves
and Princes plotting use.
With one consent against the LORD.
against his Christ also.
3 Let us assunder break their bands.
and their cords from us throw.
4 He that in heaven sire shall laugh▪
the LORD deride them shall.
5 Then to them in his ire he'l speak▪
in's wrath sore vex them all.
6 But I anoint my King upon
Zion my holy hill.
7 The counsell that establish't i [...]
declare abroad I will.
The LORD to me said. Thou' [...]t my son.
this day I thee begot.
8 Ask thou of me▪ and I will give
the heathen for thy lot:
And of the [...] thou shalt possess
[...] abroad.
9 Thou shalt [...] potters [...]
[...]nd [...] with non [...].
[Page 3]
10 And now ye Kings be wise, be learn'd
ye Judges of th'earth (H [...]ar.)
11 Serve ye the LORD with reverence▪
rejoyce with trembling fear.
12 Kis ye the Son, le [...] he be wroth▪
and ye fall in the way.
When his wrath but a litle burn [...]:
blest all that on him stay.

PSAL: III. A Psalm of David when he [...]ed from the face of Absalom his s [...]n.

O LORD my foes how great are they▪
How many up against me stand▪
2 No help is to my soul▪ they say,
In God for him at any hand.
3 My shield and glory yet art thou,
LORD, and th'up- [...] of my head.
4 I with my voyce to All cal'd, who
[...] holy [...] me answered. Selah
5 I laid down, slept, and wake did I▪
I [...] Jehovah up did bear.
6 The [...]olk that round against [...],
Ten thous [...]nds of [...] not [...]ea [...].
7 O LORD my God to save [...].
[...] all mine [...] ye [...] thou [...] stroke
[...] cheek bone▪ [...]
[...] of the wicked [...].
8 This and [...]
[Page 4]Unto Jehovah doth pertain▪
Thy people specially upon
Thy blessing doth and shall [...].

PSAL: IV. To the chief musician on Negi [...]th, a Psalm of David.

GOD of my justice when I call
O hear mee; when distrest
Thou hast inlarg'd mee▪ shew mee grace,
and hear thou my request.
2 Yee sons of men my glory turn
to shame how long will you?
How long will yee love vanitie
and still deceit pursue? Selah
3 But know ye LORD hath set apart
for him his gracious saint:
The LORD will hear when unto him
I pour out my complaint.
* 4 Be stirred up; but do not [...]inn
consider seriously
Within your heart, with silence deep
when on your bed you lie.
5 The sacrifice of righteousness
[...]et sacrificed bee;
And confidently put your trust
upon the LORD do yee.
6 Many [...] say, O who
will [...] good to see?
[Page 5]The light, LORD, of thy countenance
let on us lifted bee.
7 Thou hast per gladness in my hear [...]
[...]more then the time wherin,
Their corn & their new wine also
have much increased bin▪
8 In peace with him I will lie down
and I my sleep will take:
For mee in confidence to dwell
thou LORD alone dost make.

PSAL: V. To the chief musician on Nehiloth A Psalm of David.

JEHOVAH to my words give ea [...],
my meditation weigh.
My King my God my cries voice hea [...]
for I to thee will pray.
3 Thou in the morn my voice shalt hear
LORD in the morning I
Will unto thee direct my pray'r
and will looke up on high.
4 For thou art not a God that will
in wickedness delight:
Nor shall with thee dwell any ill.
5 Nor fooles stand in thy [...]ight:
Craf [...]men [...] sin thou [...] them.
6 Thou shalt him stroy that [...]:
The LORD will loath the b [...]oo [...]y men
and them that guile devise.
[Page 6]
7 But I will to thy house draw [...]
in thine abundant grace▪
And I will worship in thy fear
towards thy holy p [...]ce.
8 Conduct mee in thy righteousness
by reason of my spyes;
O LORD thy wayes most streight-express
also before mine eyes.
9 For in their mouth no faith they have
their inward parts are wrong:
Their throat is as an open grave,
they flatter with their [...]ongue.
10 O God make thou them wholly wast▪
them from their plots let fall:
Out i [...] their [...]aps of sin them cast.
for 'gainst thee [...]et they all.
11 But l [...]t all joy that trust in thee▪
shout ever let the same:
For thou defend'st them: glad let bee
in thee that love thy name.
12 For thou LORD wil [...] thy blessing yield
unto the righteous one:
And [...] with a shield
with acceptation.

Second Meeter.

O LORD give ear to what I say,
My meditation understand.
2 [...] King▪ my God to thee I pr [...]y.
Voyce of my cry do thou [...].
[Page 7]3 My voyce the morning time within.
O thou Jehovah shalt it hear:
I will to thee i'th morning time
Address, and will mine eyes up-rear.
4 For thou'rt a God hast no delight
In [...]in; nor ill dwell with thee shall.
5 Fooles shall not stand before thy fight.
Who mischief work, thou hat'st them all.
6 Thou wilt bring to destruction quite▪
Them that do lying falshood pra [...]e:
The man of blood, and of deceit,
Jehovah will abominate.
7 But in thy many mercies [...]
Enter into thy house will I:

With saving strength of his right hand,

Ev'n length of dayes to him, that hee

15 The hearts of every one

And all their operations
he well doth mind the same.
16 By multitude of hosts
no King himself doth save,
Nor yet by multitude of strength
they strong deliverance have.
17 A horse a vain thing is
to be a saviour,
Nor shall he work deliverance
by greatness of his powr.
18 On them that doe him fear▪

Upon them that do place their hope,

But they that fear the LORD no want

And I will you instruct how yee

Who loveth dayes, and hath intent

13 Thy tongue from ill, thy lipps also

them that do wickedly,
That he of them from off the land

17 When as the righteous men doe cry,
the LORD doth hear their call:
And gives to them delivery

PSAL: XLVIII. To the chief musician, A song and psalm for the sonns of Korah.

GReat is Jehovah, greatly hee
is to be praised still:
Within the Citty of our God,
within his holy hill.
2 Mount Sion's fairly situate,
the joy of th'earth so wide:
The Citty of the mighty King,
is on the Northern side.
3 God in her pallaces is known,
to be a refuge high.
4 For lo the Kings assembled were,
they past together by.
5 They saw and so they marvieled
they greatly troubled were,
They also hasted fast away.
6 Fear felt upon them there,
As on a woman travailing,
[Page 91]they such a paine did find.
7 In pieces thou the Tarshish ships,
dost break with Eastern wind.
8 I'th Citty of the LORD of hoasts,
wee saw as we heard say:
I'th Citty of our God, God will
establish it for ay.
8 O God our thoughts have been upon
thy free benignity:
And that within the middest of
thy house of Sanctity.
10 According to thy Name O God.
so is thy praise unto.
Th'ends of the earth, thy right hand's full
of righteousness also.
11 O let mount Sion joyfull be!
and triumph let them make:
They that of Judah daughters are,
ev'n for thy judgments sake.
12 About the hill of Sion walk,
and go about her yee;
And do ye reckon up thereof
the tow'rs that therin bee.
13 Doe yee full well her bulwarks mark,
her pallaces view well:
That to the generation
to come, ye may it tell.
14 Because this God he is our God,
for ever, and for [...]y:
[Page 92]And he will be [...] guide to us,
ev'n to our [...]ying day.

PSAL: XLIX. To the chief mus [...]cian, A Psalm for [...] Kor [...]h.

HEar this all people & give ear,

2 Sonns both of low and higher men,
th [...] rich the poor as well.
3 I with my mouth varietie
of wisdom will imp [...]rt:
Of understanding much shall bee
the musings of my heart.
4 Unto a speech proverbiall,
I will incline mine ear:
I will upon the Ha [...]p withall,

5 Why should I be at all afraid,

When that my heels iniquity,

6 Those men that make their great estates

His [...], nor to God can give

[Page 93]
8 So dear their souls redemption is,
and ever ceaseth it.
9 That he should still for ever live,
and never s [...]e the pit.
10 For he doth see that wise men dy,
the fool, and bruitish too:
Do perish, and their rich estate,
to others leave they doe.
11 They think their houses are for ay,
to generations all:
Their dwelling places, and their lands
they by their names do call.
12 But man in honour being set;
abideth not a night:
But he becometh like unto
the beasts that perish quite.
13 This way of theirs their folly is;
yet thei [...] posterity▪
Delighting in that which they say,
approve it vehemently.
14 Like sheen so are they laid in grave,
dea [...]h shall them feed upon;
And th'upright over them i'th morn
shall have dominion:
And from the pl [...]ce wheras they dwell,
the beauty which they have.
Shall utterly consume away,
within the rotting grave.
15 But surely God redemption
unto my soul will give▪
[Page 94]Even from the graves prevailing powr, Selah
for he will me receive.
16 Be not afraid when as a man,
in wealth is made to grow.
And when the glory of his house,
abundantly doth flow.
17 For when as hee doth come to dy,
nought shall he take away:
Nor shall there after him descend,
his glorious array.
18 Although in his life time, his soul
for blessed he did take:
And men will praise thee when as thou
much of thy self dost make.
19 Hee shall go to his fathers race,
they never shall see light:
In honour man and knows not, is
like beasts that perish quite.

PSALM L. A Psalm of As [...]ph.

THe Mighty God Jehovah spake,
and he the earth doth call:
Even from the rising of the Sun,
therof unto the fall.
2 The mighty God hath clearly [...]

Which of all beauty excel [...]nt,
doth the perfection fill.
[Page 95]
3 Our God shall come & not be still,
fyre wasteth in his fight:
And round about him shall be rays'd,
a storm of wondrous might.
4 To judg his people he from high,
calls heavens and earth likewise.
5 Bring me my saints that cov'nant make
with me by sacrifice.
6 And th'heavens shall his righteousness,
apparently make known:
Because the mighty God himself,
is righteous judg alone.
7 Hear O my people, and I'le speak▪
yea I will testifie:
Also to thee O Israel,
I ev'n thy God am I.
8 As for thy sacrifices I
will find no fault with thee:
Or thy burnt offrings to have been,
continually with mee.
9 I'le take no bullocks nor he-goats,
from hous or fields of thine.
10 For forrest-beasts, and cattell all,
on thousand hills [...]re mine.
11 The [...]owls that on the mountains [...]
all of them do I know:
And wild-beas [...]s, in the fiel [...]s [...],

12 If I were hung [...]y I would not
it unto thee declare▪
[Page 96]For mine the habitable world,
and fullness of it are.
13 Of bullocks eat the flesh, or drink
the blood of goats will I?
14 Thanks offer unto God and pay
thy vowes to him most high.
15 And in the day of sore distress,
do thou unto him cry:
And I'le deliver thee, and then
thou shalt me glorify.
16 But to the wicked God doth say,
why doest thou mention make▪
Of statutes mine, why in thy mouth,
shouldst thou my cov'nant take?
17 Wheras thou dost instruction hate,
and my words from thee cast.
18 When thou didst see a thief with him
then thou consented hast:
And likewise with adulterers,
thy part hath been the same.
19 Thy mouth to evill thou dost give;
and guile thy tongue doth frame.
20 Thou sittest down, and so against
thy brother dost declaime:
The son of thine own mother thou
with slander dost defame.
21 Th [...]se things thou didst. I silent was▪
[...] thought [...]t of me likewise,
[...] thy self; I'le thee reproove.
[Page 97]and rank them in thine eyes.
22 Now therfore this consider yee,
that God forgotten have:
Left that in pieces I you tear,
and there be none to save.
23 Who so doth prayses sacrifice,
hee glorifieth mee:
Who orders right his way likewise,
shall Gods salvation see.

PSAL: LI. To the chief musician, A Psalm of David when Nathan the Prophet came to him after hee had gone in to Bathsheba.

12 Nor from me take thy holy Spirit.

Of thy salvation, and uphold

13 Then will I teach thy wayes to those

And by this meanes shall sinners bee

free from blood-guiltiness:
[Page 99]And so my tongue shall joyfully,
sing of thy righteousness.
15 LORD open thou my lips, and forth

16 For thou desir'st not sacrifice,
I would it else bestow,
Burnt offrings thou delights not in.
17 Of God the sacrifice,
A broken spirit, a contrite heart
God thou wilt not dispise.
18 In thy good pleasure O do good

The walls of thy Jerusalem,

With hysop, clean I shall be so:
O wash thou mee, and so shall I,
In whiteness go beyond the snow.
8 Of joy fullness and gladness make

That so the bones which erst thou brake,
Again they gladly may rejoyce.

Blot out all mine iniquities.

5 God shall likewise for evermore.

Hee shall thee take away, and pluck

Out of the land of th'living ones.
hee also will root thee. Selah
6 The just shall fear and laugh at him,

7 Lo, this man made not God his strength

His store of wealth: he strengthned was,

8 But in the house of God am I,

In Gods benignitie for ay,

And on thy name will wayt, for this

PSAL: LIII. To the chief musician upon Mahalath Masch [...]l; A Psalm of David.

THe fool in's heart saith ther's no God
they are corrupt each one,
Abominable sinn they doe:
that doth good there is none.
2 God from the heavens looked down▪
on sonns of men to see,
If any that doth understand
that seeketh God there bee.
3 They altogether filthy are,
each one is backward gone:
There is not any that doth good,
no not so much as one.
4 The workers of iniquities,
have they no knowledge all?
Who eat my people even as bread,
on God they do not call.
5 They greatly fear'd where no fear was:
'gainst thee in camp that lies
His bones God scattered, and them sham'd
for God doth them despise.
6 O who is hee that graciously
to Israel will fulfill,
His manifold salvations▪
from out of Sion hill?
When God his people shall return,
that have been captive led:
Then Jacob shall therin rejoyce,
and Israel shall be glad.

3 For strangers up against me rise,
and who oppress me sore,
Pursue my soul: the mighty God
they set not them before. Selah
4 Lo God's mine help, the LORD's with them
that do my soul sustain.
5 He to my foes shall ill reward:
them in thy trueth restrain.
9 I will unto thee sacrifice,
with voluntaryness:
I will thy Name confess O LORD,
because that good it is.
7 For he hath me delivered,
out of all miseries:
And its desire mine eye hath seen,
upon mine enemies.

PSAL: LV. To the chief [...] M [...]schil; A Psalm of David.

2 O be attentive unto mee,

I in my meditation,

3 By reason of the enimies voyce,
and vile one that opprest:
For wickedness on me they cast,
and me in wrath detest.
4 Mine heart in me is pained sore,
death's terrours me surprize.
5 Trembling and fear do on me come,
and horrour on me seize.
6 Then did I say, O who to mee

Mischief also and sorrow d [...]e,

[Page 106]
11 In midst therof ther's wickedness.
deceit doth there abide:
Likewise out of the streets therof,
guile turneth not aside.

I could it then abide:
Nor did my hater vaunt o're mee,

Which wast to me my special guide,

14 Wee did together counsell take,

And wee did walk into the house

15 Let death seiz on them, and let them
sink down quick into hell:
For wickedness amongst them is,
in places where they dwell.
16 But as for mee, I'le call on God,
and me the LORD save shall.
17 At evening, morn, and noon I'le pray
and I aloud will call,
And he also will hear my voyce.

Because that they no changes have,

20 Gainst such as be at peace with him,

Because they watch this soul of mine,

7 What shall they thus escape away,
by their unrighteousness:
O God in wrath without delay,
the people down depress.
8 Of all my wandrings to and fro,

My teares thy bottle put into,

And for their cursing, and their lies,

So they that God in Jacob rules,

PSAL: LXIII. A Psalm of David when he was in the wilderness of Iudah.

O God thou art my God, I will

My soul doth thirst for thee, thee still

I'th land wheras no waters bee,
that thirsty is and dry.
2 As in thine house I saw, to see,

3 Because thy loving kindness more
in goodness doth excell
Then life it self: my lips therfore,
thy praises forth shall tell.
4 Thus I'le thee bless continually,

In watches of the night withall

7 Because thou art my help, I will
rejoyce in thy wings shade.
8 My soul cleaves close unto thee still:
thy right hand hath me staid.
9 But they that seek my soul to wast,
down under earth shall go.
10 Slain by the sword, they shall be cast

And bend their bows to shoot their shafts,

4 That they in secrecie may shoot
the perfect man to hit;
They suddenly do shoot at him,
nor are affraid of it.
5 Themselves they in a matter ill,
encourage how they may
Lay snares in secret: 'tis their talk
who shall them see? they say.
6 They do search out iniquitie,
a search exact they keep:
The inward thought of every man,
and heart is also deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them a shaft;
their wounds be suddain shall.
8 So as they shall their own tongue make
upon themselves to fall.
All that them see away shall flee.
9 All men shall fear and tell
The workes of God, for of his deed
they shall consider well.

To desolations suddenly▪

And how are they con [...]'d away,

And there is nothing th'earth upon

2 My mouth I'le ope in parables.
I'le speak things his of old:
Which we have heard & known; and which
our fathers have us told.
4 Them from their children wee'l not hide,
but shew the age to come,
The LORD his praise; his strength and workes
of wonder he hath done.
5 In Jacob he a witness set,
a Law in Israel,
Hee gave, which he our fathers charg'd
they should their children tell.
6 That th'age to come & children which
are to be born might know;
That they who should [...]rise, the same
might to their children show.
7 That they upon the Mighty God
their confidence might set:
Gods works, and his commandements
might keep, and not forget.
8 And might not like their fathers bee,
a cross, stiff race, a r [...]ce
That set not right their hearts; nor firme

9 The armed [...]o [...]ms of Ephr [...]im,

And he the waters made to stand,

14 With cloud by day, with fyre by night

In wilderness, as from great deeps,
drink unto them he gave,
16 Ev'n from out of the stony rock
streams he did bring also,
And caused water to run down,
like as the rivers do.
17 Moreover they did add yet more

By their provoaking the most high

18 Morover they within their heart

24 On them he Manna [...]aind to eat;
and gave them heavens wheat.
25 Each man of them eat Angels food:
to'th full he sent them meat.
26 I'th heav'ns he made ye east wind blow
brought south wind by his powr.
27 He flesh on them like dust: wing'd foules
like sand of seas did showr.
28 And in the middest of their camp

Ev'n round about on every side

29 So they did eat they filled were

For that which w [...]s their own desire,

[Page 156]
30 They from their hasting [...]

But while their meat was in their mouth,

32 Yet for all this they sinn'd, nor did
believe his wonders then.
33 Therfore in vanity the dayes

And he their yeares brought hastily
unto a fearfull end.
34 When he them flew, then after him
they sought with their desire,
And they return'd and after God,
they early did enquire.
35 Likewise that God was their strong rock,
they call'd to memorie:
And how that their redeemer was
the mighty God most high.
36 Yet with their mouth they flattered him
and to him their tongues ly'd.
37 For right their heart was not with him,
nor did in's cov'nant 'bide.
38 But full of mercy he forgave
their sin, and stroyd them not;
Yea oft he turn'd his wrath aside,
nor rays'd all's anger hot.
39 For he recalled unto mind,

And to destroy them, them amongst

46 He gave their fruit to th'catterpillars▪
to Locusts eke their toyl.
47 He did their vines destroy with hayl:
with frost their figtrees spoyl.
48 Their cattle he delivered up
unto the hayl also;
[Page 158]And he their hea [...]ds of cattle [...]
hot thunder-bolts unto.
49 He cast on them [...]erce ire▪ and wrath,
and indignation strong;
And sore distress, by sending forth
ill Angels them among.
50 He made a way unto his wrath,
their soul he did not save
From death, but unto pestilence,
their lively ones he gave.
51 He within Egypt land also
the first born all did smite:
Those that within the tents of [...]

52 [...]ut like a flock of sheep [...]e made
his people forth to go:
And in the desart like a flock,

53 In safety he them led likewise.
so that they did not fear;
But in the sea their enemies,
he overwhelmed there.
54 The border of his holy place
them therunto be brought:
Yea even to this mountain which,
by his right hand he bought.
55 Fore them he cast the heathen out,
he did their lot divide
By line; and Isr'els tribes he made
in their tents to abide▪
[Page 159]
56 Yet they did tempt, and bitterly
did grieve the God most high:
Also his Testimonies they
kept [...] attentively.
57 But like their fathers, back they turn'd

They turned were aside ev'n like

And with their graven Images,

59 God hearing this, was wrath, & loath'd
Isr'el with hatred great.
60 So Shiloah [...] tent he left [...] the rent
which he among men set.
61 And he delivered up his strength
into captivity:
Also into the enemies hand
his glorious Majesty.
62 To th'sword he gave his folk: and was
wroth with his heritage

O LORD thou favour'd hast thy land:
Jacobs captivity

thy folks captivity,
Thou hast close covered all their sin.
3 Thou hast thy wrath off cast,
Thou from the fierceness of thine ire,
thy self returned hast.
4 Turn us again, O thou the God
of our salvation:
And towards us cause thou to cease

for evermore? wh [...] shall
Thine anger be by thee drawn out

PSAL: LXXXVI. A Prayer of David.

BOw down O LORD thine ear,
hear me attentively:
For I am poor, afflicted sore,
and needy too am I.
2 In safety keep my soul,
for gracious am I?
My God save thou thy servant now,
that doth on thee rely.
[Page 175]
3 Jehovah gracious
O be thou unto mee▪
Because that I aloud do cry
through all the day to thee,
4 O make thy servants soul
that it may joyfull bee:
Because that I O LORD, on high
do lift my soul to thee.
5 For thou O LORD art good,
to pardon proan also;
And to them all on thee that call
in mercy rich art thou.
6 Jehovah to thine ear
O let my pray'r have place▪
Attend unto the voyce also
of my requests for grace.
7 I'th day of my distress
to thee I will complain:
Because that thou will me unto
an answer give again.
8 Amongst the gods O LORD
like thee not any bee:
And no works are that may compare
with those are wrought by thee▪
9. The Nations all O LORD,
whom thou hast made, the same
Shall come adore, ev'n thee before
and gloryfie thy Name.
10 Because thou Mighty art,
the things that thou hast done,
[Page 176]They wondrous are, and do declare
that thou art God alone.
11 Teach me thy way, O LORD;
walk in thy Truth will I:
Thine holy Name to fear the same
mine heart in unionly.
12 With all mine heart I will,
O LORD my God thee prayse:
And also I will gloryfie
thy holy Name alwayes.
13 Because that unto mee
thy mercy doth excell
My soul set free hath been by thee
en'n from the lowest hell.
14 O God the proud arise
and violent troops 'gainst mee:
My soul seek they to take away,
and 'fore them set not thee.
15 But LORD a tender God▪
thou art, and gracious,
Long suffring too, in mercy thou,
and trueth art plenteous.
16 O turn to me thy face,
and on me mercy have:
Thy strength give thou thy servant now,
thine handmaids sonn O save.
17 Shew me a sign for good;
and let my haters see;
Bee sham'd also: because LORD thou
[Page 177]dost help and comfort mee.

Another Metre.

LORD bow thine ear, hear me because
I needy am, and poor.
2 Because a gracious saint I am,
preserve my soul therfore:
O thou my God thy servant save
that doth on thee rely▪
3 To me be gracious LORD, because
to thee I dayly cry.
4 Rejoyce thy servants soul, for LORD
to thee mine lift I do
5 Because Jehovah thou art good,
to pardon proan also:
And to them all in mercy rich,
thou art that on thee call.
6 LORD hear my pray'r, attend the voyce
of my requests withall.
7 I'le in my troubles on thee call,
for thou wilt answer mee.
8 LORD none's like thee amongst ye gods
and like thy works none bee.
9 The Nations all whom thou hast made
shall come, and (LORD) the same
Before thee shall bow down themselves,
and gloryfie thy Name.
10 Because thou Mighty art also,
the things that thou hast done:
[Page 178]They wondrous are and do declare,
that thou art God alone.
11 Me O Jehovah teach thy way,
walk in thy tru [...]th will I▪
With reverence to fear thy Name
my heart in union ty.
12 Thee LORD my God with all my heart
I will confess with prayse:
And likewise I will gloryfie
thy holy Name alwayes.
13 Because thy kindness mercifull,
is very great to mee:
And thou hast from the lowest hell
my soul delivered free.
14 O God the proud against me rise,
and troops of violent men
Have sought my soul: and they have not
thee placed before them.
15 But LORD thou art a tender God,
and very gratious▪
Long suffering too: in mercy thou
and trueth art plenteous.
16 O turn thou unto me the face,
and on me mercy have:
Unto thy servant give thy strength,
thine handmaids sonn O save.
17 Show me a sign for good, that they
which hate me, may it see.
And be asham'd, because LORD thou
dost help and comfort mee.

3 Because my soul is troubled so,
And to the grave my life draw's nigh.

As on that hath no strength am I.
5 As free among those that be dead,
Like to the slain in grave up shut:
By thee no more remembered;
And by thy hand that off are cut.
6 Thou hast me layd i'th pit most low▪
In darknesses within deep caves.
7 Hard on me lies thy wrath, also
Thou me afflictst with all thy waves. Selah
8 Men that of mine acquaintance bee,
Away from me thou farr hast put:
To them thou loathsom makest mee,
From comming forth I am up shut.
9 Because of mine affliction
Mine eye with mourning pines amay:
Jehovah, I thee call upon;
And to thee stretch my hands all day.
10 Shew wonders to the dead wilt thou?
Shall dead men rise & thee confess? Selah
11 I'th grave wilt thou thy kindness show
In lost estate thy faithfullness?
12 Thy works that wonderfull have been,
What shall in darkness they be known▪
And shall thy righteousness be seen,
In that land of oblivion?

PSAL: LXXXIX. Mase [...]il of Ethan the Ezrahito.

THe mercyes of Jehovah sing
for evermore will I:
I [...]le with my mouth thy truth make known
to all posterity.
2 For I have said, that mercy shall
for ever be up-built:
Establish in the very hea [...]ns
thy faithfulness thou wilt.
[...] With him that is my chosen one
a covenant made I have:
And to my servant David I
by oath this promise [...].
[Page 182]4 To perpetuity thy seed
establish sure I will:
Likewise to generations all,
thy throne I'le build up still. Selah.
5 Also the heav'ns thy wonders LORD,
they shall with prayse confess:
Within th'assembly of the saints,
likewise thy faithfulness.
6 For to the LORD the heav'ns within
who is't we can compare?
Who's like the LORD among the sonns
of them that mighty are.
7 God greatly in the Church of saints
is to be had in fear:
And to be reverenc't of all those
that round about him are.
8 Jehovah O thou God of hoasts,
strong Jah who's like to thee?
Thy faithfulness on every side
doth round encompass thee.
9 Over the raging of the sea
thou didst dominion bear:
When as the waves therof arise,
by thee they stilled are.
10 Like to one slain, thou broken hast
in pieces Rahab quite:
Thou hast disperst thine enemies,
ev'n by thine arm of might.
11 To thee the heavens do belong,
[Page 183]the earth likewise [...] thee:
The world with fulness of the same
by thee they sounded bee.
12 The North together with the South
thou didst create the same:
Tabor likewise▪ and [...]rmons hill,
rejoyce shall in thy Name.
13 Thou hast a very mighty arm,
thy hand in strength is great:
And also that right hand of thine
aloft on high is set.
14 The habitation of thy throne
justice and judgment are:
Their way before thy face to go
both grace and truth prepare.
15 O blessed are the people that
the joyfull sound do know:
LORD in thy countenances light,
they up and down shall go.
16 They all the day shall in thy Name
rejoyce exceedingly:
And in thy righteousness they shall
be lifted up on high.
17 Because that thou art of their strength
the glorious dignity:
Our horn eke shall exalted bee
in thy benignity.
18 Because Jehovah is to us
a safe protection;
And he that is our Soveraign,
[Page 184]is Isr'els holy-one.
19 Then didst thou speak in vision
unto thy saint▪ and said,
On such an one as mighty is
I have salvation laid.
20 One chosen from the folk [...] I rais'd,
my servant David I
Have found, him I anoynted with
my oyle of sanctity.
21 With whom my hand shall stablish't be
mine arm him strengthen shall.
22 Also the enemy shall not
exact on him at all:
Nor shall the sonns of wickedness
afflict him any more.
23 Before him I'le beat down his foes,
and plague his haters sore.
24 My Mercy yet, and Verity,
with him shall be the same:
His horn likewise shall be on high
exalted in my name.
25 Morover I within the sea,
will cause his hand to stand;
Likewise within the rivers I
will se [...]e his right hand.
[...]6 To me, my Father thou▪ my God,
and health's Rock, he shall cry.
27 And I will [...] him my first born;
then [...] Kings more high.
[Page 185]28 My mercy I will keep for him,
to times which ever last:
With him also my covenant
shall be establish't fast.
29 Morover I his seed will make
for to endure alwayes:
And I his throne establish will
like as of heav'n the dayes.
30 If that his sonns forsake my Law,
and from my judgments swerve:
31 If they my Statutes break, and do
my precepts not observe;
32 Their bold transgressions with the tod,
then visit sore will I:
Likewise with stripes I visit will,
their cross iniquity.
33 My loving kindness yet from him
away take will not I:
Nor suffer will in any wise,
my Faithfullness to ly.
34 The Cov'nant I have made with him,
shall not by me be broke:
That which is gone out of my lips
I never will revoake.
35 On e [...]ware I by my Holiness
if I to David ly.
36 [...] assuredly shall last
to perpetuity.
And [...] the Sun [...] his throne▪
[Page 186]37 It like the moon shall stay:
And as in heav'n a witness true,
shall stablisht be for ay.
38 But thou hast cast off, and abhor'd;
wroth with thine oynted one,
[...]9 Thou art. Thy servants covenant
thou hast made it as none:
By casting it unto the ground,
thou hast prophan'd his crown.
40 His forts to ruin thou hast brought,
his hedges all broke down.
41 All spoyl him by the way that pass,
his neighbour's scorn hee's made.
42 His foes right hand thou hast extoll'd,
thou mak'st all's enemies glad.
43 And of his sword the edge thou turn'st
nor mak [...]st him stand in [...]ight.
44 Thou dost his crown cast down to ground
and cease his glory bright.
45 And of his youthfull yeares the dayes,
thou hast diminished:
All over with confusion
thou hast him co [...]d.
46 How long Jehovah, wilt thou hide
thy self, for eve [...] [...]ore?
Like as a burning fyre [...]ide
shall thy displeasure [...]?
48 To thy remembrance do thou call,
how short a time have I:
[Page 187]Wherfore hast thou created all
mens sonns to vanity?
48 What man alive in strength so great,
that death he shall not see?
That from the hand of grave shall set
his soul at libertie? Selah.
49 Thy former loving kindnesses
O LORD, where are they [...]?
Which in thy truth, and faithfullness▪
to David thou didst vow?
50 O LORD do thou thy servants scorn
unto remembrance call:
How in my brest I have it born,
from mighty people all.
51 Wherwith O LORD thine enemies,
do cast reproach upon:
Wherwith they do reproach the steps
of thine anoynted one.
52 O let Jehovah blessed bee
to generations all▪
Amen so let it be also
Amen, be so it shall.


PSAL: XC. A Prayer of Moses the man of God.

THou Lord our stay, hast been an house
of habitation
[Page 188]From generation unto us
to generation.
2 Before the mountains were begot,
the earth and world before
Thou formed hadst; thou art a God
from ay for evermore.
3 Thou dost by bruising to decay
turn miserable men▪
Yee sonns of men, then thou dost say,
return ye back agen.
4 For while a thousand yeares do last,
it is but in thy sight
As yesterday when it is past,
and as a watch by night.
5 Thou dost them bear away like as
a flood that overflowes:
Like sheep they are, and as the grass
which in the morning growes.
6 Which in the morn is flourishing,
and springing up doth rise;
Which is cut down at evening,
it withereth up likewise.
7 Because by reason of thine ire,
wee wasted are away:
And by thine angers burning fyre
wee speedily decay.
8 Thou hast set our iniquities
before thee in thy sight:
Our secret evills are likewise,
before thy faces light,
[Page 189]
9 Because that in thy fury all
our dayes away are rol'd:
Wee spend away our yeares withall▪
like as a tale that's told.
10 The time is threescore yeares & [...],
which our years dayes contain:
And if through strength they fourscore been
their strength is grief & pain.
For soon its gon, and hence we pass.
11 O who is he doth know
Thine angers strength? according as
thy fear thy wrath is so.
12 O give thou us instruction
to number so our dayes,
That we our hearts may therupon▪
turn into wisdoms wayes.
13 Jehovah turn thy self again▪
how long yet shall it bee?
14 O let it thee repent for them
that servants are to thee.
15 According to the dayes wherin
affliction we have had:
And yeares wherin ill we have seen▪
now also make us glad.
16 Unto thy servants O do thou
thy handy work declare:
And shew thy comly glory to
those that their children are▪
17 The beawtie of Jehovah thus
our God let on us bee:
[Page 190]Confirm our handy work on us▪
confirm'd be it by thee.


HE that within the secrecie

In shaddow of th'Almighty hee
shall lodging safe abide.
2 He is my hope and fortress high,
I of the LORD will say
He is my God, and in him I
my confidence will stay.
3 The fowlers snare surely from thence
he shall deliver thee:
And from th'infectious pestilence,
he also shall thee free.
4 Hee with his feathers shall thee hide▪
thy trust in's wings shall bee:
His strength shall as a shield abide,
and buckler unto thee.
5 With feare thou shalt not bee dismaid
for terrour by the night;
Nor of the arrow be afraid,
that hath by day his [...]ght.
6 Nor for the plagues infection,
that walkes in darkness fast;
Nor for the sore destruction,
that doth at noon day wast.
7 A thousand at thy side shall fall,
yea and ten thousand heer
[Page 191]At thy right hand, but yet it shall
not unto thee come near▪
8 This thing thou only with thine eyes
shalt heedfully regard;
Thou shalt behold how that likwise
the wicked have reward.
9 For (thou hast said) Jehovah thou
art my protection;
The highest one thou mak'st also
thine habitation.
10 Not any evill casually

Not yet shall any plague come nigh
thy dwelling place at all.
11 Because that hee his Angels will

That they may thee preserve from ill,

12 The hollow of their hands upon

Lest thou thy foot against a stone

2 I'le wisely do in perfect way.
who [...] thou shalt come to mee▪
I will [...] midst of my house walk

3 I will not set before mine eyes
the work of wickedness:
I hate their work that turn aside▪
it shall not cleave me to.
[Page 207]The froward heart from me shall part▪
none evill will I know.
I'le cut him off that slandereth
his neighbour privily:
can not bear the proud in heart▪
nor him that looketh high.
6 Upon the faithfull in the land
mine eyes shall be, that they
May dwell with me, he shall me serv [...]
that walks in perfect way.
7 Hee that a worker is of guile

And let my cry come unto thee.

[...] For as the smoak my dayes do spend,

That I to eat my bread forget.

My bones unto my skin are set.

8 My [...]oes reproach me dayly yet,
Gainst me they rage, 'gainst me they swear.
9 That I for bread do ashes eat;
And mix my drink with weeping tear,
to Thine anger is the cause herof▪
Also thy vehement disdain:
For thou hast set me up aloft,
And thou hast cast me down again.
11 Shade-like my dayes decline away;
And like the witherd grass I fall.
12 But LORD thou dost abide for ay;
Thy mem'ry eke to ages all.
13 Thou wilt arise and forth wilt show,
Thy mercy Sion her upon:
Because her time of favour now,
Yea time appointed is come on.
14 For in her stones thy servants (dear)
Delight her dust they pitty [...]o.
15 So heathens shall ye LORDs name fear,
All Kings of th'earth thy glory too.

Hee in his glory shall appear.

And he will not despise their pray'r.
18 This shall in writt inrolled bee,
For the succeding after race▪
The folk which shall created bee,
They herupon the LORD shall praise.

From heav'ns the LORD y earth doth see.
20 To hear their groans who prisoners ly,
To loose them that death's children bee.

PSAL: CIII. A Psalm of David.

THe LORD bless, O my soul, and all
in me his holy Name.
2 The LORD bless O my soul, and all
his bounties mind the same:
For he it is, that doth forgive
all thine iniquities.
3 And it is he that doth relieve
all thine infirmities.
4 Who ransoms from destruction
thy life, and crowneth thee
With his most dear compassion,
and kind benignitie.
5 Who with good things aboundantly
doth satisfie thy mouth:
So that like as the Eagles bee,
renewed is thy youth.
6 The LORD doth judgment, justice too,
for all oppressed ones.
7 His wayes to Moses he did show,
his acts to Isr'els sonns.
8 The LORD is mercifull, also
hee's very gracious:
And unto anger he is slow,
in mercy plenteous.
6 Contention he will not mainteyn
to perpetuity:
[Page 211]And he his wrath will not reteyn
unto eternity.
10 According to our sinns likewise,
to us he hath not done;
Nor hath he our iniquities
rewarded us upon.
11 Because ev'n as the heavens are
in height the earth above:
So toward them that do him fear,
confirmed is his love.
12 Like as the East and west they are
farr in their distances;
Hee hath remov'd away so farr
from us our trespasses.
13 A Fathers pitty like unto;
which he his sonns doth bear:
Like pitty doth Jehovah show,
to them that do him fear.
14 For he doth know this f [...]me of ours,
hee minds that dust we bee.
15 M [...]ns d [...]yes are lik [...] ye gr [...]ss like flowr,
in field, so flowe [...]eth h [...]e.
16 For over it the wind doth pass,
and it away doth go:
Also the place wheras it was
no longer shall it know.
17 Who fear the LORD, his mercy is
on them from ay to ay:
So likewise doth his righteousness
[Page 212]on children's children stay.
18 To such as keep his covenant
that do in mind up lay:
The charge of his commandement,
that it obey they may.
19 The LORD hath in the heavens high,
established his throne:
And over all his Royalty
doth bear dominion.
20 O ye his Angels that excell
in strength, bless ye the LORD▪
That do his word, that harken well
unto the voyce of's word.
21 All ye the Armies of the LORD,
O bless Jehovah still:
His ministers that do accord,
his pleasure to fulfill.
22 Yea all his works in places all
of his dominion,
Bless ye Jehovah: O my soul
Jehovah bless alone.


O 'Thou my soul Jehovah bless,
thou LORD my God, in might
Excel'st, thou art with comliness
and Majesty bedight.
2 Who dost thy self with light aray,
as if a robe it were:
Who like a curtain dost display,
the heavens every where.
[Page 213]
3 Who doth the beams of's chamber lay
i'th waters, and he makes
The clouds his charriots, and his way
on wings of wind he takes.
4 His ministers a fiery [...]ame,
his Ang [...]s spirits makes
5 The earth he founded on her frame,
so that it never shakes.
6 As with a robe thou with the deep,
didst over-spread the land:
Aloft above the mountains steep,
the waters they did stand.
7 When thou didst them rebuke, they fled▪
ev'n then away full fast:
And at thy thunders voyce they sped
their course away in hast.
8 They up aloft by mountains past,
down by the vales did go:
The place for them which fixt thou hast
untill they come unto.
9 Thou hast appointed them a bound
which they may not pass o're:
That they to cover the dry ground,
may turn again no more.
10 Into the vales he sendeth springs,
which run among the hills:
Thence drink to all field-beasts he brings;
wild Asses drink their fil [...]s.
12 The fowls of heav'n dwell there, which [...]ing

14 For [...] grass, and for mans good

That what may serve them for their food;
hee from the earth may bring.
15 And wine mans heart that maketh glad.
and oyle to make's face bright:
And for the heart of man gives bread.
it to support with might.
16 Jehovah's trees that are most strong,
no fill of sap do want:
The Cedar trees of Lebanon,
the which himself doth plant.
17 That so the little birds may there
upon them build their nest:
As for the Stork the fir-trees are
the places of her rest.
18 The hills for wild goats refuge bee,
the conies rocks enclose.
19 The Moon for seasons set hath hee:
the Sun his setting knows.
20 Thou darkness mak'st and night comes on
when wood-beasts creep out all.
21 Roar for their prey [...]o Lions young,
from God for food they call.
22 The Sun doth rise, they in their denns
then couch, they go aside.
23 Man to [...] work and labour tends
[Page 215]untill the evening ti [...]e.
24 Thy works (LORD) are how manifold▪
them all thou mad'st with skill:
The earth doth of thy riches hold
abundantly her fill.
25 So doth this Sea so great and wide,
wherin things creeping bee,
Beyond all count▪ sm [...]ll beasts, beside
those of great quantitie.
26 There go the ships, there thou didst make
Leviathan to play.
27 Their food in season to partake,
all on thee waiting stay.
28 They gather that thou dost bestow,
thine h [...]nd thou openest wide▪
With such things as are good they so
are fully satisfied.
29 Thou hid'st thy face, they troubled are

24 Full sweet the meditation

I in the EVEN-BE [...]ING one,

35 From off the earth let sinners cease,
and wicked be no more:
O thou my soul Jehovah bless,
praise yee the LORD therfore.


O Praise the LORD, call on his name:
' [...]ong people shew his facts.
2 Sing unto him, sing psalms to him:

3 Let their he [...]rts joy that seek ye LORD

4 The LORD seek, and his strength his face
seek ye alwayes th [...] same.
5 Remember ye what he hath done,
[Page 217]6 O ye his servant Abrahams seed,
yee Jacob sonn [...] elect.
7 Hee is the LORD our God, through th [...] earth
his judgments take effect.
8 His Covenant for evermore,
and his commanded word▪
A thousand generations to,
he doth in mind record.
9 The cov'nant which he heretofore
did unto Abraham make:
And unto Isaack afterward,
likewise an oath did take.
10 And unto Jacob for a Law,
hee did confirm it fast:
To Israel for a covenant,
that evermore should last.
11 Hee said I'le give thee Canaans land:
by lot heirs to be there.
12 When few, yea very few in count,
and strangers in't they were:
13 When they did from one nation,
another pass unto:
When as they from one kingdom did
to other people go.
14 Hee suffred none to do them wrong,
yea Kings for them che [...]kt hee.
15 Touch ye not mine [...]noynted ones;
my prophets [...] not yee.
16 Hee cal'd for [...]mine on the land;
[Page 218]all [...] of bread he brake.
17 Before th [...] sent a man: they sold
Joseph a slave to make.
18 Whose feet they did with fetters hurt:
hee did in yron [...] ly.
19 Untill the time his word did come,
the LORDs words did him try▪
20 The King, the peoples ruler sent,
loos'd him, and let him go▪
21 Hee made him lord of all his house,
of all's wealth ruler too.
22 That he his noble Peers might bind
according to his heart;
And that unto his Senators
hee wisdom might impart.
23 Then also into Egypt land,
his father Israel came:
And Jacob was a sojourner
within the land of H [...]m.
24 Hee much increast his folk, and made
them then their foes more strong.
25 Their heart he turn'd his folk to hate,
to do his seruants wrong.
26 His servant Moses he did send,
and Aaron whom he chose.
27 His signes and wonders them amongst,
they in H [...]ms land disclose.
28 Hee darkness sent and made it dark,
nor did they 's word gainsay.
[Page 219]29 Hee turn'd their waters into blood▪
and he their fish did slay.
30 Great store of Frogs their land brought forth
in chambers of their Kings.
31 He spake, there came mixt swarms, and lice
in all their coasts he brings.
32 He gave them hall for rain, and in
their land, fyres flame did make.
33 Their vines and figtrees both he smote
their coast trees eke he brake.
34 He spake, and then the Locusts came▪
and Catterpillers such,
The number of them was so great
that none could count how much.
35 All their lands herbes they ate and did
fruit of their ground devoure:
36 All first born in their land he smote,
the chief of all their power.
37 He also thence did bring them forth
with silvar, and with gold;
And there was not among their tribes,
a feeble person told.
38 At their outgoing Egypt joy'd,
for on them fell their dread.
39 A cloud for cov'ring, and a fyre
to light the night he spread.
40 They askt▪ and he brought qualls, with bread
he fill'd them from the sky
41 He clave the rock, and waters flow'd,
[Page 220]floods ran in places dry.
42 For on his holy promise hee:
and servant Abraham thought.
43 With joy his people, and with songs,
forth he his chosen brought.
44 He of the heathen people did
the land on them bestow:
The labour of the people they
inherited also.
45 To this intent that so they might
his Statutes keep alwayes:
And that they might his Lawes observe:
therfore Jehovah prayse:


THe LORD pr [...]ise▪ to the LORD give thanks
because that good is hee:
Because his mercy doth indure,
to perpetuitie.
2 Who can the LORDs strong acts forth tell
or all his prayse display.
3 Blest they that judgment keep, & who
doth righteousness alway.
4 With favour of thy people, LORD,
do thou remember mee.
Mee v [...]sit with the say [...]ng health,

5 To see thy chosens go [...]d, and in

That I with thine inheritance,

[Page 221]
6 As our forefathers did so wee
have finned swervingly:
Wee pr [...]ctis'd have iniquitie,
wee have done wickedly.
7 Our fathers learn'd not wonders thine
in Egypt did not mind
Thy many mere yes▪ but at Sea▪
red Sea r [...]bel'd unkind.
8 Nev [...]rtheless he saved them,
evin for his own Names sake:
That by the same his mighty power▪
hee manifest might make.
9 The red Sea he rebuk't also,
and up the same was dry'd:
So them as through the wilderness▪
hee through the Sea did guid.
10 And from his hand that hated them,
hee freely did them save:
Hee from the enemies hand likewise,
to them redemption gave.
11 The waters overwhelm'd their foes:
of them was left not one.
12 They did believe his word, they sang
his prayses therupon.
13 They soon forgot his works, nor would
they for his cousel stay.
14 But much in wilderness did lust,
i'th desart God try'd they.
15 And he their suit them gave; but sent
[Page 222]leanness their soul into.
16 They env'd Moses in the camp,
Aaron Gods faint also.
17 The opned earth D [...]than devour'd,

18 And fyre was kindled in their rout,
flame burnt the wicked up.

21 They God forgot their Saviour which

23 And said, he would the [...] [...]roy, but that

24 Yet they despis'd the pleasant land,

'gainst them he lift his hand.

28 And to [...] or they joynd themselves

[Page 223]29 Their works his wrath did thus pro­ [...]
30 Then [...] rose, and judgment did:
and so the plague did stay.
31 Which justice in him counted was,

32 At th'waters of contention,

So that with Moses for their sake▪

37 Yea unto Divels they their sonn [...]
and daughters offered.
38 And guiltless blood, blood of their sonns
and of their daughters shed.
Whom unto Canaans [...]dols they
gave up in sacrifice:
The land with blood abundantly
polluted was likewise.
39 Thus with the works were they defil'd
which they themselves had done
And they did go a whoring with
inventions of their own.

40 [...] against his folk▪

Pitty'd of all that led them forth

Gainst me they speak with lying tongue.

4 They for my love, mine enemies are,
but I my prayer make,
[Page 232]5 And ill for good rewarded mee;
and hate for my loves sake.
6 Appoint a wicked person, that
o're him may have command:
And likewise at his right hand let
the adversary stand.
7 When he is judged, let him then
condemned be therin:
And let the pray'r that he doth make,
bee turned into sin.
8 Yea let his dayes be few, and let
his chardg another take.
9 His children let be fatherless,
his wife a widdow make.
10 His children let be vagabonds,
let them a begging go:
And from their places desolate,
let them seek bread also.
11 Yea let th'extortioner catch all,
that doth to him pertain:
And let the stranger spoil, what hee
did by his labour gain.
12 Let there not any be to him,
that mercy may express:
Nor any one that savour may,
his children fatherless.
13 Let go into perdition,
the race that of him came:
In th'after generation▪
[Page 233]ou [...] razed be his name.
14 Remembred with the LORD, be his
fathers iniquitee:
And of his mother let the sin
out-blotted never bee.
15 Before Jehovah let them bee
continually put:
That from out of the earth he may
the mem'ry of them cut.
16 Because that he remembred not,
compassion to impart:
But did pursue the needy poor,
to slay the broke in heart.
17 As he did cursing love, so let
the same unto him come:
As he did not in blessing joy,
so be it farr him from.
18 With cursing like a robe, as hee
him cloth'd; so let it go
In to his bowels water like,
like oyl his bones into.
19 Like as a garment let it bee
to him, him to aray:
And for a girdle where with hee
may gird himself alway.
20 Thus let mine adversaries bee,
rewarded from the LORD:
Thus them reward against my soul,
[...]hat speak an evill word.

And be they cloth'd as with a cloak.

17 The LORD is just in all his wayes,
and holy in's works all.
18 Hee' [...] near to all that call on him,
in truth that on him call.
19 Hee of them all that do him fear
will their desire fulfill:
And he will harken to their cry,
them likewise save he will.
20 The LORD preserveth all of them,
of him that lovers bee:
But whosoever wicked are,
destroy them quite will hee.
21 My mouth the prayses of the LORD,
[Page 306]discoursing shall express:
And let all flesh his holy Name,
for ay and ever bless.


THe LORD praise, praise my soul the LORD.
2 So long as I do live.
I'le praise the LORD, while that I am,
prayse to my God I'le give.
3 Tru [...] not in Princes, nor man [...] son,

4 His breath goeth forth, to's earth lie [...] turn [...]

5 O blest is hee that hath the God
of Jacob for his ayd:
Whose hopefull confidence upon
the LORD his God is stayd.
6 Who heav'n, earth, sea, all in them made?
who ay his truth makes good.
7 Who for th'oppressed judgment doth,
who gives the hungry food.
8 The LORD doth loose the prisoners,
the LORD op's th'eyes of blind:
The LORD doth rayse the bowed down,
the LORD to th'just is kind.
9 The LORD saves strangers, widdows hee
and f [...]therless doth rayse:
But he of them that wicked bee
doth overthrow the wayes.

10 The LORD shall reign for evermore,

To ground the vile doth fling.
7 Sing thanks the LORD unto,
On Harp our Gods praise sing.

Makes grass to rise.

When as they cry feeds them.

12 The LORD Jerus'lem praise:
Sion thy God confess.
13 For thy gates bares he stayes,
In thee thy sonns doth bless.
14 Peace maketh hee
In borders thine▪ With wheat so fine
Hee filleth thee▪
15 On earth sends his decree,
His word doth swiftly pass.
16 Gives snow like wooll, and hee
Hoar-frosts spreads ashes as.
His yee doth send
Like morselle to; 'Fore his cold who
Can steady stand?
18 His word sends, and them thaws,
Makes [...] blow, water flowes.
19 His Word Jacob: his Laws,
And Judgments. Israel showes.
20 Hee hath so done.
No nation to, And judgments so
They have not known.

Of thy good oyntmen [...]s, therfore do

Into his secret chambers hath

Wee will be glad, and wee likewise

Wee will remember more then wine
thy love; thee love th'upright.
5 O daughters of Jerusalem.
I am a comely one,
Though black, as Kedars tents, and as
curtains of Solomon.
[Page]6 Because I blackish [...], therefore
upon me look not yee,
Because that with his beams the Sun
hath looked down on mee.
My mothers sonn [...] were wroth with mee▪
they vinyards me assign
To keep; wheras I have not kept
the vineyard that was mine.
7 Tell me thou whom my soul doth [...]
where thou thy feed dost take▪
And also where at noon time thou
thy flock to rest dost make:
Because O wherfore should I bee
like to such va [...]ed ones,
That turn aside unto the flocks
of thy companions.
8 Most fair of women know'st thou not▪
thou by the flocks-steps go:
Forth on thy way by shepheards tents,
feed thou thy kids also.
[...] To troops of horse in Pharoahs coach,
my [...]ove I thee compare.
10 Thy neck with chains, with jewells rows,
thy cheeks f [...]ll comely are.
11 Borders of gold, with silvar studd [...],
for thee make up wee will
12 Whil [...]st that the King at's table fits▪
my spikenard yields her smell.
13 Like as of Mirth a bundle is
[Page]my welbelov'd to mee:
Through all the night betwixt my breasts,
his lodging place shall bee.
14 My love as in Engeddys vines,
like Camphires bunch to mee.
15 Lo fair my love, lo fair thou art;
thine eyes as doves eyes bee.
16 Lo thou art fair, my love, and sweet▪
our bed is green likewise:
Our houses beams of Cedars are,
of fi [...]r our galleries.


I Sharons rose, and lilly am
that grows the vales along.
2 As lilly is 'mongst thorns▪ my love
the daughters is among.
3 As is the Apple tree among
trees in the wood that grow:
My wellbeloved one amongst
the sonns is even so.
I with great joy sat in his shade,
his fruits I swe [...]t did tast.
4 Hee brought me to his house of wine,
his love-flag o're me cast.
5 With staggo [...]s stay; with apples mee
chear up [...] sick I
6 Under my head his left hand doth
his right about me ly.
7 O daughters of Jerusalem,
my love w [...]ke not, not raise,
By Roes, and hinds of held, I you
do charge, [...]till he please.
8 The voyce of my beloved one
upon the mountains, lo
Hee cometh leaping on the hills,
hee skipping is also.
9 As Roes o [...] [...]a [...]nes of Hinds my love,
behold he stands, and views,
Behind our wall, the window through,
himself through lattess shews.
10 My wellbeloved he did speak,
and unto me did say▪
Arise my love, my comely one,
come thou also away.
11 For lo the winter passed is,
the rain is overgone.
12 The flowers appear upon the earth,
birds singing time is come:
And of the Turtle dove the voyce
is heard our land within.
13 The figtree causeth forth to spring▪
her figs that yet are green
The vines also, with tender grape,
do give good smell I say▪
Arise my love, my comely one,
and do thou come away.
14 My dove, i'th [...]ocky cl [...]fts, close stairs
thy voyce O let me hear,
[Page]And see thy face, for sweet's thy voyce,
thy face is also fair.
15 Take us the foxes, take for us
the little [...] here,
That spoil the vines; because our vines
[...] tender grapes do bear.
16 My welbeloved one is mine,
and I am also his:
Amongst the lilly-flowrs also
his pleasant [...]eeding is.
17 Untill day break, and shades fly hence▪
turn my beloved one,
And like a Roe, or young Hart bee
the Bether mountains on.


MY souls love I by night did seek,
as I on bed did ly:
Although that I for him did seek,
yet find him could not I.
2 Now I'le arise, and in the streets,
[...] streets of Citty round:
I will him seek whom my soul loves
I sought, but not him found.
3 As they about the Citty went
the watchmen found out mee:
To whom I said, him whom my soul
doth love, O did you see?
4 It was but as a little space
[Page]that I from them had past:
But whom my soul did love▪ I found,
and then I held him fast.
I would not suffer him to go,
till I had brought him in
My mothers house▪ the chamber [...]
conceived I had bin.
5 O daughters of Jerusalem,
my love [...] not, nor raise,
By Roes, and [...] of [...], I [...]
do charge untill he please.
6 Who's this from desert that ascends,
like smo [...]k [...]e pillars tall,
Perfum'd with mirth and frankincense,
'bove merchants powders all.
7 Behold the bed the which is his,
the which is Solomons:
About it [...] valiant men
of Israels valiant ones.
8 They all of them do handle swords,
they expert are in fight:
Each man his sword hath on his thigh
for terrour in the night.
9 King Sol [...]mon made himself a bed
of wood of Lebanon.
10 It's pillars hee of silvar made,
gold was its bottom on:
Of purple was the covering
the which was spread above,
[Page]For daughters of Jerusalem,

11 Yee daughters that in Sion dwell▪
go forth, and eke behold
King Solomon, adorned with

Wherwith on his espousall [...] day
his mother hath him crown'd▪
And in the day wherin his heart

LO fair thou art my love▪ lo fair,
doves eyes in thy locks are:
Thy hair as flocks of goats that from
mount Gilead do appear.
2 Thy teeth are as a smooth shorn flock,
which from the washing come,
Where every one of them bear [...] twinns,
of them ther's ba [...]on none.
3 Thy lips are as a scarlet threed,
thy speech eke comly is:
Within thy locks thy temples ar [...]
like a pomgranate piece.
4 Thy neck is like to Davids tower,
built for an armory,
Where hang a thousand shields, all shields
of men of potency.
5 Thy breasts they twain compared are
[Page]to Ro [...] a couple young:
The which are twins, and have their feed▪
the lilly-flowrs among.
6 Untill the time the day shall break,
and till the shades [...] hence.
I'le get me to the mounts of mirth,
and hill of frankincense.
7 All fair thou art my lovely one▪
there is no spot in thee.
8 My spouse with me from Leb'non come
from Lebanon with mee▪
Look from the top of Amanah,
from Sheni [...]s top also,
From Hermon, from the Lyons dens▪
the Leopards mountains fro.
9 My sister spouse thou ravishest
my heart, thou dost affect
My heart with that one eye of thine,
with one chain of thy neck.
10 How fair's thy love, my sister spouse,
how better farr thy love
Then wine; and thine anoyntments smell▪
all spices far above.
11 My spouse thy lips drop honey comb,
both hony and milk are on
Thy tongue, [...]nd thy cloths smell is like
the smell of Lebanon.
12 My sister my espoused one,
a garden closely [...]utt:
A wellspring closed up thee is,
a fountain sealed up.
13 Thy cyo [...] of Pomgranates are.
like to a Paradise.
With pleasant fruits replenished.
Camphire, [...] likewise.
14 Spiknard, and Saffron, Calamus▪
[...] likewise:
All Incense trees, Myrrh▪ Aloes,
with all [...] of spice.
15 The gardens fount 'live waters-spring▪
and streams from Lebanon.
16 Wake O North wind, and come thou South▪
my garden blow upon.
It's spices, that the may flow out:
his garden come into
Let my beloved one, and eat
his pleasant fruits also.


I Am into my garden come,
my sister, spouse likewise:
And I my Myrrh have gathered up,
together with my spice,
My hony comb with hony ate▪
my wine and milk drunk I:
Eat O yee friends, drink O belov'd,
yea drink abundant [...]y.
2 I sleep, but yet my heart 'oth wake:
the voyce 'tis of my love
That knocketh, ope [...] unto mee,
O sister mine, my dove:
[Page]My love my undefiled one▪
because my head [...]
With dew, [...]

And I have [...]shed clean my [...]
how shall I them distain?
4 My wel beloved put his hand
in by the hole o'th dore,
My bowells made a troubled noyse
in me for him therfore.
5 I rose, to open to my love▪
and my hands Mirrh did [...]
My fingers eke sweet Mirrh upon
[...] handles of the lock.
6 When I the door had opened,
to my beloved one,
Then had my love withdrawn himself▪
and he away was gone:
When as he spake, my soul did fayl,
although I sought him have,
I found him not, I calld him, yet
he me no answer gave.
7 The w [...]tchmen that the Citty round▪
me found, smite, wound did they,
The keepers of the walls from mee
did take my veyl away.
8 O daughters of Jerusalem,
[Page]I charge you to him say,
If my belov'd yee [...]
for love do faint away.
9 What's thy love more then others loves
fairest of women kind▪
What's thy love more then others love,
that us thou dost so bind▪
10 My love is white, and ruddy, chief
amongst ten thousands hee.
11 His head is gold most fine, his locks
curl'd, black, as Ravens bee.
12 His eyes as doves, by water-streams,
with milk washt, set full meet.
13 His cheeks, are as a bed of spice,
as flowers of odours sweet:
His lilly-lips, drop flowing Mirrh,
his hands gold rings bedight.
14 With Ber [...]ll laid, with Saphires is
his belly Ivory bright.
15 His legs, as Marble pillars, set
on sockets of fine gold:
His look as Lebanon, as choice
as Cedars to behold.
16 Most sweet his palla [...] lovely he [...]
Ev'n altogether is:
O daughters of Jerusalem,
my love, and friend is this.


FAirest of women▪ whither i [...]
thy loved gone away▪
Where is thy love by-turn'd, that so
seek him with thee wee may.
2 My love to 's gardens down is gone▪
into the beds of spice▪
To feed in gardens, and to get
the lilly-flowrs likewise.
3 I am for my beloved one,
and my belov'd for mee:
And feed among the lilly-flowers
continually doth hee.
4 Thou art my love as T [...]rz [...] neat,
fair as Jerusalem.
Yea▪ terrible, as is an hoast,
that doth with banners stream.
5 Turn thou from me thine eyes, because
they have me overcome:
Thine hair is as a flock of goats,
which look from Gilead down.
6 Thy teeth are as a flock of sheep,
up from the washing gone,
Wherof each one bears twinns, of them
ther's not a barren one.
7 And in such wise within thy locks,
thy temples placed are:
That to a piece of Pomgranate,
the same I may compare.
8 Or Queens threescore, and fourscore is
of concubins the count,
[Page]There are so many Virgin [...] as
all number do surmount.
9 My dove, my undefiled one▪
shee is her mothers one:
Of her that did her [...] alone▪
shee is the choicest one▪
The daughters, when they her beheld.
they did her blessed call,
Yea both the Queens, and concubins,
they praysed her withall.
10 Who's shee yt looks as morning forth,
fair as the Moon so bright▪
Clear as the Sun, and terrible
as hoasts with [...]nners [...]ight?
11 To'th garden of the nuts I went
down, valley fruits to see:
To see, if Vines did bud, if bloom
did the Pomgranate tree.
12 My soul had placed me before
I ever was aware,
Upon the charriots of them that
my willing people are.
13 Turn, turn, O [...]hulamite, turn, turn▪
that wee may look on thee:
What will you see i'th Shulamite▪
as two camps company.


HOw beautifull thy feet with shoos,
O [...] daughter stand
[Page]Thy thighs, [...]
work of a skillfull hand.
2 Thy navell which no liquor wants,
is like a [...]:
Thy belly like [...] of [...]

3 Thy two breasts, are like as [...]

4 Thy neck is also like unto
a towr of Ivorie:
Thine eyes like Heshbons fishpools are,
B [...]th-rabbi [...]s entrance by:
Thy nose as towr of Lebanon,
that doth Damascus [...]y.
5 Thine head on thee, like Carmell is,
hair of thy head likewise
Like purple is; the King is held
within the galleries.
6 How fair and delicate art thou,
O love, for pleasan [...]ie!
7 This stature thine, is like the Palm,
thy breasts, as cluster [...] bee.
8 I said I will the Palm ascend,
the boughs therof I held:
L [...]ke to Vine clusters are thy breasts,
thy nose as Apples smeld.
9 And as best wine, thy pallat is,
that to my love runns sweet,
C [...]sing the lips to utter speech,
of those that are asleep.
10 I am my loves, [...]
is placed me upon.
11 [...] beloved, let us forth
unto the field be gone▪
Let's lodg within the villages,

12 Unto the Vineyards, [...]
if [...]owrish doth the V [...]ne▪
If that the tender grape appear,
the Pomgranates also:
If that they bud, and there my love [...]
I will on thee bestow.
13 The mandrakes give a smell, and at
our gates all sweet fruits bee,
Both new, and old, O my belov'd,
which I have stor'd for thee.


O That thou as my brother wort,
that suckt my mothers breast,
I would thee find without, and kiss,
yet none should me infest.
2 I to my mothers house would lead▪
and bring thee, who taught mee:
Spic't wine of my Pomgranate juice,
to drink I would cause thee.
3 His left hand underneath my head,
and right should me embrace.
4 O daughters of Jerusalem▪
I charge you till he please▪
[Page]Not to stirr up, nor to awake.
my wellbeloved one.
5 But who is this [...]ea [...]es on her love,
that doth from des [...]t come:
There where thy mother thee conceiv'd,
undertake Apple tree:
Where shee thee ba [...]e, who brought thee fort [...]
I there up-raysed thee.
6 Mee as [...] on thy heart,
as on thyn [...]:
For love is strong as death, and fierce
as hell, is jealous zeal.
The coales therof, are coales of fyre,
most ardent is its fla [...]e.
7 Much waters cannot quench this love,
nor can floods drown the same:
If all the substance of his house
a man would give for love.
It neverless would utterly
a price contemned prove.
8 A little sister 'tis we have,
but yet no breasts hath thee:
What shall we for ou [...] sister do,
when shee be-spoke shall bee▪
9 A s [...]va [...] towr wee' [...] [...]n her build,
if that a wall [...]ee bee,
And i [...] a door, then her enclose,
with Cedar boards will wee.
10 I am a wall, like unto tow [...]s,
[Page]my breasts they [...]re likewise▪
Like unto one that favour found,
then was I in his eyes.
11 At Baal-hammon. Solomon
a vineyard had, and hee
The vineyard [...]red out▪ to them
that should its keepers bee
Each one a thousand [...]varlings
was for it's fruit to pay.
12 The vineyard that is mine, before
my presence is alway:
Thy part O Solomon unto
a thousand doth arise,
Those that do keep the fruit therof,
two hundred have likewise.
13 O thou that in the gardens dwell'st.
they that companions are,
Unto thy voyce attending bee,
cause thou me it to hea [...].
14 Make hast, and be thou like a Ro [...]
my wellbeloved one:
Or be thou like a fawn of Harts▪
the mounts of spices on.
Here endeth the Song of Solomon.



NOw I to my beloved will
A song of my loves vinyard sing,
He hath a vineyard on a hill
Which in the horn of sto [...]e doth spring.
2 He fenc't it, and it [...] stones out threw
And planted it with choisest Vine,
Amid'st it built a towr also,
And therin made a press for wine:
Hee looked grapes it should yield then▪
But sowr-wild-grapes it forth did bring▪
3 Now dwellers in Jerusalem,
And men of Judah, judg this thing
Betwen my Vineyard, now, and mee.
4 What to it could I have done more▪
Yet when I lookt its grapes to see,
Why brought it forth wild-grapes ther­fore▪
5 And now I'le tell you, what I'le do,
My Vineyards hedg remove will I,
To be devour'd, and I'le down throw,
It's wall, and it trod down shall ly.
6 And it for desolate I'le say,
Unp [...]un'd, undig [...]d, with brambles spread,
And thornes; and to the clouds I'le say
That they on it no rain shall shed.
7 Because the house of Israel,
The LORD of hoasts his vineyard is:
The men in Judahs tribe that dwell.
They are that pleasant plant of his▪
And he for judgment did expect,
But lo there an oppressing wound;

Because the LORD Jehovah is
my strength, and melody,
And he is my salvation.
3 With joy shall yee therfore
Out of the well [...] of saving health

5 Sing ye unto the LORD, for hee
things excellent hath done:
Yea, throughout all the earth abroad,
the same is fully known.
6 Cry out, and shout aloud, thou that
mount Sion dwellst upon:
For mighty in the midst of thee,
is Israels Holy one.

Another Metre.

O LORD I will thee prayse,
though thou vast wroth with mee▪
Thine anger turned is away,
and thou dost comfort mee,
2 Lo God my safety [...],
trust, and nought fear will I.
Because the LORD Jehovah is
my strength, and melody.
Yea hee my safety is.
3 With joy shall yee therfore
Out of the wells of saving health
draw waters forth in store.
4 Yee in that day shall say,
prayse GOD, his name proclaim,
Shew to the folk his deeds, declare
that lofty is his Name.
5 Sing ye unto the LORD,
because that he hath done
The things that are most excellent,
in all the earth it's known.
6 Cry out, and shout, thou loud
that dwel'st mount Sion on:
For mighty in the midst of thee,
is Israels Holy one.
LORD thou'rt my God, I'le thee exalt,
I will thy Name confess;
Who wonders dost, thy counsells old
are truth and faithfulness.
2 For thou a Citty mad'st an heap,
wall'd townes to wast, to fall.
The st [...]nger never of the town,
rebuild a pallace shall.
3 And for this cause thee gloryfie,
the mighty people shal [...]:
The Citty of dread nations,
shall reverence thee withall.
4 For thou hast been unto the poor
his strong munition:
In his distress thou art the strength
unto the needy one:
Thou art a refuge from the storm,
a shaddow from the heat:
When blasts of dr [...]adfull ones as stormes
against the wall do beat.
4 Thou shalt bring down the strangers noi [...]
as heat in places dry.
As heat by clouds-shade ceast, the branch
of dread ones low shall ly.
6 The LORD of hoasts morover shall
upon this mountain make,
A sumpteous feast of far things, for
all people to partake:
A feast of wines upon the lees,
for them hee shall prepare.
[Page]Of [...] [...]rrowy things, of wines.
on lees re [...]yn'd that are.
7 And in this mountain hee destroy
the fa [...]e of covering shall
Cast o're all people and the vail,
spread over nations all.
8 For ever hee will swallow up
death into victory:
The LORD God from all faces shall
wipe teares off utterly:
From all the [...] his folks rebuke
hee shall [...]ake clean away.
9 Lo this our God who will us save,
for him wee wayting s [...]ay:
This is the LORD, on whom wee had
ou [...] expectation,
Wee will rejoyce, and will be glad
in [...]is saluation.


WEE have a Citty very strong,
God will appoint salvation
Her w [...]lls and bulwarks for to bee.
2 Set open ye the gates that so
The righteous nation in may go
That doth observe the v [...]itie:
3 In perfect peace keep him thou wilt,
Whose thoughtfull mind on thee is built,
Because he doth on thee rely.
4 Trust in the LORD for evermore,
[Page]For in the LORD Jehovah store
Of strength is to eternity.
5 For he brings down who dwell on high
The lofty Citty low makes ly:
Hee layes it low ev'n to the floor,
Ev'n to the dust he hath it thrown.
6 The poor mans feet shall tread it down,
The feet and steps of th'needy-poor.
7 Uprightness is the just mans way,
Thou most upright, his path dost weigh.
8 Yea in thy judgments way O LORD,
Wee wayted have for thee, the same
Our soule desire is to thy Name,
And thee in mind still to record.
9 My soul hath thee desir'd by night,
Yea, I within mee with my sprig [...]t
In early seeking thee do earn:
For when on ear [...]h thy judgments bee,
The dwel [...]ers in the world sh [...]ll see,
That so they righteousness m [...]y learn▪
10 Let to the wicked grace be [...]hown,
Yet righteousness learn will he none;
But in the land of uprightness.
Hee will both deal unrighteously,
And he Jehovahs Majesty
Will not behold him to redress.
11 Jehovah when thy hand on high
Is lifted up, they will not see:
But see and be asham'd in all they
With envy at thy folk likewise,
[Page]The fyre of thy streit enemies
Shall them devour, ev'n quite away.
12 LORD peace for us ordein wilt thou,
For in us thou hast wrought also
Ev'n all our works, our God O LORD.
13 Lords others had dominion
O're us, besides thee, but alone
By thee wee will thy Name record.
14 They dead are they▪ shall live no more▪
They [...]re deceased▪ they therfore
Shall not arise, because thou hast
Them visitted, and hast them all
D [...]stroy'd, and their memoriall
Thou quite hast made away to wast.
15 Jehovah thou the nation
Increased hast, the nation
Thou hast increast abundantly:
Therfore then gloryfied art,
Thou hast remov'd it farr apart,
Where all the ends of th'earth do ly.
16 They visit thee, LORD in the hour
Of trouble, out their pray'r they pour
On them when thy chastisments light.
17 As shee that is to travell nigh,
Is pain'd, and out of pangs doth cry:
So h [...]ve we been LORD in thy sight.
18 We have conceiv'd, been paind, forth brought
As't were the wind, no health we wrought
In th'earth, nor have the worldlings slew
Thy dead, my corps shall live, and rise
[Page]Who dwell i'th dust, [...] sing likewise▪
Fo [...] as the dew of he [...] thy dew.
Th'earth shall her dead pastour also.
20 My folk, come, to thy chambers go,
And shut thy door, about thee fast▪
Hide thou thy self now as it were,
But for a little moment there,
Untill the wrath bee over-past.
21 For lo ye LORD from's place doth come
To execute on them the doom▪
That do upon the earth remain
Because of their iniquity:
Th'earth also shall her blood discry,
And cover shall no more her slain.

CHAP: XXXVIII. The Song of Hezekiah, after [...] recovery from si [...]kness.

10 I Said in cutting off my dayes,
Go to the gates of gra [...]e shall I;
And of the remnant of my yeares,
I am deprived utterly.
11 I said the LORD I shall not see,
I'th land of living ones the LORD.
And man no more behold shall▪
With them that dwell within the world.
11 Mine age away from me is put,
And moved as a shepherds tent:
I weaver-like my life off cut,
With plaing sicknes be mee spent.
[Page]Yea from the day the night untill.
Thou quite an end of mee wilt m [...]ke.
13 I count from morning, that he will
My bones all as a Lyon break:
From day to night thou wil [...] mee wast.
14 Like Crane, or swallow charter I▪
Dove like I mourn, mine eyes [...]-cast
Do fail, LORD help, opprest am I.
15 What shall I say [...]o me he hath
Both spoken, and himself done this▪
I all my life with softly path,
Shall walk in my souls bitterness.
16 LORD, by these things men live, and thou
By these my spirits life dost give:
Thou wilt recover me also,
And thou wilt make me for to live.
17 Lo, I for peace, sharp grief did find,
But freed my soul in love thou hast
From pits corruption: for behind
Thy back thou all my sinns did'st cast.
18 For graves thy prayse cannot make known
Nor yet c [...]n death thee celebrate:
S [...]h [...]s into the pit go down▪
They for thy trueth no more can wait.
19 The living, hee, the living will
Thee praise, as I this d [...]y have done:
The father to the children still,
Hee shall thy faithfulness make known.
20 Jehovah mee to save was bent;
[Page]Therfore [...] in the LORD [...]
Will sing, on stringed instrument,
Throughout our life, ev'n all the [...]



I Am the man by' [...] wrathf [...]ll [...]:
who have of grief the fight.
2 To darkness he me led, and brought
and not into ye light.
3 Hee's surely turn'd 'gainst me, all day
his hand he turns in wrath.
4 My flesh and skin, he hath made old
my bones he b [...]oken hath.
5 Hee 'gainst me [...] built, and [...]e with [...]
and travell did infold.
6 Hee hath me set in places dark,
as who are dea [...] of old.
7 Hee me hedg'd in. I can't get ou [...]:
his heavy cha'n I bear.
8 Also when as I cry, and shout,
hee shutteth out my pray'r.
9 Hee with hew'n stone enclos'd my path
hee crooked made my wayes.
10 Hee as a Bear, [...] wait for mee,
as Lyons in hid place.
[Page] [...] Hee turned hath my wayes asid [...],
and he hath pulled mee
A [...] into pieces: hee hath made
mee desolate to bee.
12 Hee bent his bow, me [...] a mark
did for the arrow place.
13 His quivers strows he hath caus [...]
into me [...] to pass.
14 To all my folk, I was a scorn:
and all the day their song.
15 Hee made me full of bitterness,
and drunck with wormwood strong.
16 And he my teeth with gravell brake,
in ashes rolled mee.
17 And far thou put'st my soul from peace
gone is prosperitie.
18 Yea I did say, my strength and hope,
is perisht from the LORD.
19 My grief and pain, wormwood & gall,
when I in mind record.
20 My soul doth them remember still▪
and in mee's humbled sore.
21 This to my heart I do recall,
and hope I have therfore.
22 It's of the mercys of the LORD
wee' [...] not consum'd away:
Because that his compassions
they never do decay.
23 They every morning are renu'd,
his faithfullness is great.
[Page]24 The LORD's my portion saith my soul
thence hope on him I'le set.
25 To them that wait for him, to'th soul
that seeks him, good's the LORD,
26 It's good to hope, and still to wait▪
for safety from the LORD.
27 It is good for a man in's youth
that he hath born the yoak.
28 Hee sits alone, and silence keeps▪
because it was his stroak.
29 Hee puts his mouth into the dust,
if so there hope may bee.
30 His cheek to him that smites he gives,
fill'd with reproach is hee.
31 For ay the LORD will not cast off,
but though grie [...] cause he should,
32 Yet will he have compassion
in's mercyes manifold.
33 For he afflicts not willingly▪
nor grieves the sonns of men.
34 To crush in pieces under's feet
earths prisoners all of them.
35 To turn aside the right of man
before the high it his face▪
36 The LORD approves not to subvert
a man in his just case.
37 Who's he that saith, and done it is,
unless the LORD it will.
38 Out of the mouth of the most high
proceeds not good, and ill.
39 Why doth a living man complain▪
a man for his sinns pain?
40 Let's search, and try our wayes, and turn
unto the LORD again.
41 Let us lift up our heart, and hands,
to God on high in heaven.
42 We trespast have, and have rebell'd,
and thou hast not forgiven.
43 Thou hyd'st with wrath, and us pursu'st
thou slay'st, and dost not rue.
44 Thou so with clouds dost hide thy self
our prayer cannot pass through
45 Amidst the people us thou mad'st
the refuse scum likewise.
46 Against us opened have their mouths
all of our enemies.
47 Fear and snare is come on us,
wast and destruction.
48 For my folks daughters wast, mine eye
runs water-rivers down.
49 Mine eye with tears doth trickle down
no intermission.
50 Untill the LORD from heav'n look down
on our affliction.
51 Mine eye affects mine heart, for all
my Citty's daughters sore.
52 Mee like a bird, my foes pursu'd,
they have no cause therfore.
53 My life i'th dungeon they cut off,
on me a stone they put.
[Page]54 The waters did flow o're raine head.
I said I off am cut.
55 I called on thy name O LORD▪
out of the dungeon low.
56 Thou hard'st my voyce, hide not thine ear▪
my cry, my breathing fro.
57 Thou [...]rewest near, and said'st fear not
i'th day I calld on thee.
58 LORD, my souls causes thou didst plead,
my life thou hast set free.
59 Jehov [...]h thou hast seen my wrong,
judg thou the cause for mee.
60 Their vengeance all, and all their plots
against me thou didst see
61 Thou hast heard their reproach O Lord
their plots 'gainst mee alway.
62 The lips of those who 'gainst me rose▪
their plots 'gainst mee all day.
63 Their sitting down, their rising up,
their musick lo am I.
64 O LORD on them a recompence
to their hands works apply.
65 Give to them senslesnes of heart,
thy curse to them afford.
66 In wrath chase, and them wast beneath
the heavens of the LORD.


REmember LORD what's come on us

3 Wee orphans are, and fatherless,
our mothers widdows are.
4 Our water wee for money drunk,
our wood is sold us dear.
5 Our necks in persecution are,
wee toyl, no rest we have.
6 For fill of bread to Egypt wee
and hand to Ashur gave.
7 Our fathers sinn'd, and are no more,
and born [...]heir sinn have wee.
8 Us servants rule, out of their hands
ther's none to set us free.
9 [...] of life, for desarts sword

10 Because of dreadfull dearth, our skin

11 They women fore' [...] in Sion, maids
in Judahs Cittys there.
12 Princes were hangd up by there hands:
not honour'd th'Elders were.
13 They took young men to gr [...]nd, the child

14 The Elders ceased from the gate,
young men their musick fro.
15 Our ha [...]ts joy ceased is, to moanes
our daunces turned bee.
16 The crown is fallen from our head,
woe to us, sin'd have wee,
17 For this our heart is faint, for this
our eyes are dimm become.
18 For Sions hill that wasted is,
the foxes walk theron.
19 Thy throne LORD is from age to age▪
thou dost remain alwayes.
[...]0 Wherfore dost thou forget [...]s ay.
us leav'st for length of dayes.
21 Turn us to thee, LORD turn we shall,

22 But thou hast wholly cast us off,

The Prayer of JONAH, to the LORD his God, out of the fishes belly.

2 I To the LORD from my distress
did cry, and he gave ear:
Out of [...]ells belly I did cry,
and hee my voyce did hear.
3 Into the deep, and midst of Seas,
because thou didst me cast:
The floods me compast, all thy wav [...]
and billows o're me past.
4 Then did I say, I utterly
cast from thy sight remain:
Thy holy Temple yet will I
towards it look again.
[Page]5 The waters even to the soul
did mee encompass round:
The depths me round enclos'd, the weeds
about my head were bound.
6 To mountains bottoms I went down,
earths barrs me ay beset:
Yet LORD my God thou broughtst my life
up from corruptions-pit.
7 When as my soul did faint in mee,
thee LORD remembred I,
And in my prayr came unto thee,
into thy Sanctuary.
8 They their own mercyes leave, that do
mark lying vanityes.
9 But with the voyce of giving thanks,
to thee I'le sacrifice:
The thing the which I vowed have
to pay I will accord;
Because alone salvation,
proceedeth from the LORD.

A PRAYER OF HABAKKUK the Prophet upon Sig [...]noth.


THy speech O LORD I heard wt fears,
Revive in midst of years O LORD
Thy work: make known in midst of years
In wrath thy tender grace record.
[Page]3 God forth from Teman saued.
The Holy one from Paran hill: Selah
The skies his glory overspread,
And all the earth his prayse did fill.
4 His brightness did as light appear.
Horns from his hand proceeded rhence:
The hiding of his strength was there.
5 Before him w [...]nt the Pestelence,
And from his feet coale [...] burning went.
6 He stood, and th'earth he measured,
He looked, and the nations rent,
Ay lasting hills were scattered.
The hills of perpetuity
Did bow, his wayes for ever stand.
7 In anguish Cushans tents saw I,
The curtains shook of Midians land.
8 What did ye floods the LORD displease
What was thine ire 'gainst rivers wide?
What was thy wrath against the Seas?
That thou didst on thy horses ride.
Thy charriots of salvation were.
* 9 Made wholly naked was thy bow,
As thou to th [...] tribes didst say and swear.
The earth with rivers cleave didst thou.
10 Thee saw▪ and shook ye mountains stee [...]
The floods of waters passed by:
His voyce forth utter did the deep,
And lifted up his hands on high.
11 The Sun, and eke the Moon so bright,
[Page]Stood still within their dwelling sphear,
They moved at thine arrows light,
At th'shining of thy glittering spear.
12 Thou didst ma [...]ch through the land in wrath▪
The heathen thou didst thresh in r [...]ge.
13 Thou forth also didst make thy path,
For safety of thy heritage:
For safety with thine oynted one:
Thou from the wickeds house the head
* Didst wound: so the foundation
Was to the neck discovered
14 Thou of his villages the head
Didst with his staves strike through the same
That me they might have scattered.
Like as a whirlwind out they came:
Twas their re [...]oycing to devour,
The poor afflicted secretly.
15 Thou with thine horses went'st in pow [...]
Through Se [...], and he [...]ps of waters high.
16 [...] ▪ my [...]lly trembled then,
And at thy voyce my lips did quake▪
A oftenness my bones came in,
And I within my self did shake:
That in the day of trouble so
I might in quietness sit still:
When he ascends the people to
Them with his troops invade hee will.
17 Though figtree blossom not at all.
Nor any fruit in vines appear,
[Page]The labour of the Olive fail,
And though ye fields no men should bear▪
Though flocks shall be cut off from fold.
In stall no herd, should have abode.
18 Yet in the LORD rejoyce I would.
I'le joy in my salvations God:
The LORD God is my strength, and hee
Doth make my feet like Hinds also.
And he it is that causeth mee
Upon my places high to go.

And that from generation,

[Page]51 Hee with his [...] hath shewed strength

In the devises of their heart

52 Down from their seat of dignity

And hath exalted them on high

53 The hungry he hath f [...]ld with good▪
the rich sent voyd away.
54 His servant Israel he hath help'd
