I i God in the * great * assembly stands Bagnadath-el.
Of Kings and lordly States,
He judges and debates. 2 How long will ye * pervert the right * Tishphetu With * judgment false and wrong
gnavel. Favouring the wicked by your might,
Who thence grow bold and strong ? 3 * Regard the * weak and fatherless Shiphtu-dal.
Dispatch the * poor mans cause, And † raise the man in deep distress By † just and equal Lawes.

And rescue from the hands Of wicked men the low estate
Of him that help demands.
In darkness they walk on,
And * out of order gon.
The Sons of God most high 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall
As other Princes die. 8 Rise God, * judge thou the earth in might, This wicked earth redress,
* Shiphta. For thou art he who shalt by right
The Nations all possess.
I Be not thou silent now at length
O God hold not thy peace,
We cry and do not cease.
2 For lo thy furious foes now * swell And * storm outrageously,
* Jehemajun. And they that hate thee proud and fell
Exalt their heads full hie.

Till they no Nation be
Be lost in memory.
And all as one in mind Themselves against thee they unite

That in the Desart dwell,

Whose bounds the Sea doth check. 8 With them great Asshur also bands And doth confirm the knot,

To aid the Sons of Lot. 9 Do to them as to Midian bold
That wasted all the Coast.
Thou didst to Jabins hoast,
They were repulst and slain,
As dung upon the plain.
So let their Princes speed
So let their Princes bleed.

No quiet let them find,
Like stubble from the wind.
Which on a sudden straies,
Till all the mountains blaze,
And with thy tempest chase; 16 And till they * yield thee honour due, They seek thy
Name. Heb. Lord fill with shame their face. 17 Asham'd and troubl’d let them be,
60 Troubl’d and sham'd for ever, Ever confounded, and so die
With shame, and scape it never.
Jehova is alone,
O're all the earth art one.
PSAL. LXXXIV. 1 How lovely are thy dwellings fair !
O Lord of Hoasts, how dear The pleasant Tabernacles are !
Where thou do'st dwell so near.
Thy Courts O Lord to see,
O living God, for thee.
Hath found a house of rest,
Hath built her 'brooding nest,
They find their safe abode,
Toward thee, My King, my God.
4 Happy, who in thy house reside
Where thee they ever praise,
And in their hearts thy waies.
That dry and barren ground
Where Springs and Showrs abound.
With joy and gladsom cheer
In Sion do appear.
O Jacobs God give ear,
Of thy anointed dear.
Is better, and more blest
A thousand daies at best.
Had rather keep a dore,
With Sin for evermore.
Gives grace and glory bright,
Whose waies are just and right.
That man is truly blest
And in thee only rest.
2 Th' iniquity thou didst forgive
That wrought thy people woe,
Hast hid where none shall know.
And calmly didst return
burning Far worse then fire to burn.
heat of thy 4 God of our saving health and peace,
Turn us, and us restore,
Toward us, and chide no more. 5 Wilt thou be angry without end,
For ever angry thus
From age to age on us? 6 Wilt thou not turn, and hear our voice * Heb. Turn to
quicken us. And us again * revive, That so thy people may rejoyce
By thee preserv'd alive.
To us thy mercy shew
And life in us renew.
I will go strait and hear,
And to his Saints full dear,
But let them never more
To trespass as before.
Salvation is at hand
To dwell within our Land.
Now joyfully are met
And hand in hand are set.
Shall bud and blossom then,
