HN the Lord put I my trust; hi say ye then to my soul, that should flee as a bird unto the hill 2 For Io, the ungodly their bow, and make ready arrows within the quiver, that they may privily shoot at them which are true of heart. 3 For the foundations will be cast down ; and what hath the righteous done * 4 The Lord is in his holy tem. ple; the Lord's seat is in heave. 5 His eyes consider the pod, and his eye-lids try the children of men. 6 The Lord alloweth the fish.

4 But they are all gone out of the way, they are altogether become abominable ; there is none that doeth good, no not one. 5 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues have they deceived: the poison of asps is under their lips. 6 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood. 7 Destruction and unhappiness is in their ways, and the way of peace have they not known; there is no fear of God before their eyes. 8 Have they no knowledge, that they are asl such workers of mischief, eating up my people as it were bread, and cali not upon the Lord * 9 There were they brought in great fear, even where no fear was ; for God is in the generation of the righteous. 10 As for you, ye have made a mock at the counsel of the poor; because he putteth his trust in the Lord. 11 Who shall give salvation unto Israel out of Sion ?

coals were kindled at it.
9 He bowed the heavens also.
and came down, and it was dark
under his feet.
10 He rode upon the Cheru-
bim, and did fly; he came flying
upon the wings of the wind.
11 He made darkness his secret
place, his pavilion round about
him with dark water, and thick
clouds to cover him.
12 At the brightness of his
presence his clouds removed;
hail-stones and coals of fire.
13 The Lord also thundered
out of heaven, and the Highest
gave his thunder; hail-stones and
coals of fire.

scattered them ; he cast forth
lightnings, and destroyed them.
15 The springs of waters were
