Psalm L (Fourth edition, revised, 1878)


1 THE God of gods, Jehovah, hath spoken
And called the earth, from the rising of the sun to the setting therof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God hath shined forth.
3 Our God cometh, and surely will not keep silence!
A fire devoureth before Him,
And round about Him a tempest rageth.
4 He calleth to the heavens from above,
And to the earth that He may judge His people.
5 “Gather unto Me, My beloved,
They that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.“
6 And the heavens have declared His righteousness,
For God is Judge Himself. [Selah.]

7 “Hear, O my people, and I will speak;
O Israel, and I will testify against thee:
God, (even) God, am I.

Psalm CX (Fourth edition, revised, 1878)


1 THE oracle of Jehovah unto my lord:
“Sit thou at My right hand,
Until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool
2 The sceptre of Thy strength shall Jehovah stretch forth
out of Zion (saying):
“Rule Thou in the midst of Thine enemies.“
3 Thy people offer themselves willingly in the day that Thou warrest.
In holy attire;
(As) from the womb of the morning,
Thou hast the dew of Thy youth.
4 Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent:
“Thou art priest for ever
After the order of Melchizedek.“
5 The Lord at Thy right hand
Hath smitten through kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He shall judge among the nations,
He hath filled (them) with corpses,
He hath smitten through the heads over the wide lands.
7 Of the brook He shall drink in te way;
Therefore shall He lift up (His) head.
