26, Psalm 73, Psalm 77-78

Psalm 73

1 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. View Tool
2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. View Tool
3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. View Tool
4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. View Tool
5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. View Tool
6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment. View Tool
7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. View Tool
8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily. View Tool
9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. View Tool
10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. View Tool
11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High? View Tool
12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. 2 I View Tool
13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency. View Tool
14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. View Tool
15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. View Tool
16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; View Tool
17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end. 2 I View Tool
18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. View Tool
19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors. View Tool
20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image. 2 I View Tool
21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. View Tool
22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. View Tool
23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. 12 I View Tool
24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. 10 I View Tool
25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. 11 I View Tool
26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. 7 I View Tool
27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. 1 I View Tool
28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works. 19 I View Tool


Psalm 77

1 I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and he gave ear unto me. 10 I View Tool
2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted. 2 I View Tool
3 I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah. View Tool
4 Thou holdest mine eyes waking: I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 2 I View Tool
5 I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. View Tool
6 I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. View Tool
7 Will the Lord cast off for ever? and will he be favourable no more? 2 I View Tool
8 Is his mercy clean gone for ever? doth his promise fail for evermore? 2 I View Tool
9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious? hath he in anger shut up his tender mercies? Selah. 2 I View Tool
10 And I said, This is my infirmity: but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most High. View Tool
11 I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old. View Tool
12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings. 2 I View Tool
13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God? 11 I View Tool
14 Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people. 2 I View Tool
15 Thou hast with thine arm redeemed thy people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah. 4 I View Tool
16 The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled. View Tool
17 The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: thine arrows also went abroad. View Tool
18 The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook. 2 I View Tool
19 Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known. 5 I View Tool
20 Thou leddest thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron. 6 I View Tool


Psalm 78

1 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 6 I View Tool
2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: 2 I View Tool
3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 2 I View Tool
4 We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. 4 I View Tool
5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: View Tool
6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: View Tool
7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: 4 I View Tool
8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God. 4 I View Tool
9 The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle. View Tool
10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law; View Tool
11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them. View Tool
12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan. 2 I View Tool
13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap. 2 I View Tool
14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire. 2 I View Tool
15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths. 2 I View Tool
16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers. 2 I View Tool
17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness. 2 I View Tool
18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust. 2 I View Tool
19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness? 2 I View Tool
20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people? 2 I View Tool
21 Therefore the Lord heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel; 2 I View Tool
22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation: 2 I View Tool
23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven, View Tool
24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. 6 I View Tool
25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full. 6 I View Tool
26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind. 4 I View Tool
27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea: 4 I View Tool
28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations. 2 I View Tool
29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire; 2 I View Tool
30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths, View Tool
31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel. View Tool
32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works. 2 I View Tool
33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble. 2 I View Tool
34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God. 4 I View Tool
35 And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer. 4 I View Tool
36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues. View Tool
37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant. View Tool
38 But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath. 9 I View Tool
39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again. 9 I View Tool
40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert! 6 I View Tool
41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. 2 I View Tool
42 They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy. 2 I View Tool
43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan. View Tool
44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink. View Tool
45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them. View Tool
46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust. View Tool
47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost. View Tool
48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts. View Tool
49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them. View Tool
50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence; View Tool
51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength in the tabernacles of Ham: View Tool
52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. 4 I View Tool
53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies. 4 I View Tool
54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, even to this mountain, which his right hand had purchased. View Tool
55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. View Tool
56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies: View Tool
57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow. View Tool
58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. View Tool
59 When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel: View Tool
60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men; View Tool
61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand. View Tool
62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance. View Tool
63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage. View Tool
64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation. View Tool
65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine. View Tool
66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach. View Tool
67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim: View Tool
68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved. View Tool
69 And he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which he hath established for ever. View Tool
70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds: View Tool
71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance. View Tool
72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands. View Tool
