Biblical Psalms:

Psalm 83

1         Hold not thy tongue, O God, keep not still silence * refrain not thyself, O God.

2         For lo, thine enemies make a murmuring * and they that hate thee have lift up their head.

3         They have imagined craftily against thy people * and taken counsel against thy secret ones.

4         They have said, Come, and let us root them out, that they be no more a people * and that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

5         For they have cast their heads together with one consent * and are confederate against thee;

6         The tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ismaelites * the Moabites and Hagarenes;

7         Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek * the Philistines, with them that dwell at Tyre.

8         Assur also is joined with them * and have helped the children of Lot.

9         But do thou to them as unto the Madianites * unto Sisera, and unto Jabin at the brook of Kison;

10       Who perished at Endor * and became as the dung of the earth.

11       Make them and their princes like Oreb and Zeb * yea, make all their princes like as Zeba and Salmana;

12       Who say, Let us take to ourselves * the houses of God in possession.

13       O my God, make them like unto a wheel * and as the stubble before the wind;

14       Like as the fire that burneth up the wood * and as the flame that consumeth the mountains.

15       Persecute them even so with thy tempest * and make them afraid with thy storm.

16       Make their faces ashamed, O Lord * that they may seek thy Name.

17       Let them be confounded and vexed ever more and more * let them be put to shame, and perish.

18       And they shall know that thou, whose Name is Jehovah * art only the most Highest over all the earth.

Psalm 84

1         O how amiable are thy dwellings * thou Lord of hosts!

2         My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord * my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.

3         Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young * even thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

4         Blessed are they that dwell in thy house * they will be always praising thee.

5         Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee * in whose heart are thy ways.

6         Who going through the vale of misery use it for a well * and the pools are filled with water.

7         They will go from strength to strength * and unto the God of gods appeareth every one of them in Sion.

8         O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer *hearken, O God of Jacob.

9         Behold, O God our defender * and look upon the face of thine Anointed.

10       For one day in thy courts * is better than a thousand.

11       I had rather be a door-keeper in the house of my God * than to dwell in the tents of ungodliness.

12       For the Lord God is a light and defence * the Lord will give grace and worship, and no good thing shall he withhold from them that live a godly life.

13       O Lord God of hosts * blessed is the man that putteth his trust in thee.

Psalm 85

1         Lord, thou art become gracious unto thy land * thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.

2         Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people * and covered all their sins.

3         Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure * and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation.

4         Turn us then, O God our Saviour * and let thine anger cease from us.

5         Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever * and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another?

6         Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us * that thy people may rejoice in thee?

7         Shew us thy mercy, O Lord * and grant us thy salvation.

8         I will hearken what the Lord God will say concerning me * for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again.

9         For his salvation is nigh them that fear him * that glory may dwell in our land.

10       Mercy and truth are met together * righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11       Truth shall flourish out of the earth * and righteousness hath looked down from heaven.

12       Yea, the Lord shall shew loving-kindness * and our land shall give her increase.

13       Righteousness shall go before him * and he shall direct his going in the way.

At the conclusion of the Psalms say:

Glory to God, Creator, Redeemer, Consoler and Our Saviour. As it was in the beginning, is now and shall be forevermore. Amen.
