CHAPTER 10

6 For he hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved; never in adversity. 

6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.

7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit; and his heart is full of fraud; and under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

10 He croucheth to the strong ones, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his devices.

13 The wicked condemn God; wherefore he doth say in his heart, Thou wilt not require iniquity at my hand. 

13 Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it.

14 O Lord, thou hast seen all this, for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand. The poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. 

14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.

15 O Lord, thou wilt break the arm of the wicked, and of the evil; and seek out his wickedness until thou find none that remain.

CHAPTER 11

CHAPTER 11

1 In that day thou shalt come, O Lord; and I will put my trust in thee. Thou shalt say unto thy people, for mine ear hath heard thy voice; thou shalt say unto every soul, Flee unto my mountain; and the righteous shall flee like a bird that is let go from the snare of the fowler. 

1 In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

2 For the wicked bend their bow; lo, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart, to destroy their foundation. 

2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.

3 But the foundations of the wicked shall be destroyed, and what can they do? 

3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

4 For the Lord, when he shall come into his holy temple, sitting upon God's throne in heaven, his eyes shall pierce the wicked. 

4 The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold,

5 Behold his eyelids shall try the children of men, and he shall redeem the righteous, and they shall be tried. The Lord loveth the righteous, but the wicked, and him that loveth violence, his soul hateth. 

his eyelids try, the children of men.

1 Help, Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.

2 They shall speak vanity every one with his neighbor; with flattering lips, with a double heart do they speak. 

2 They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

3 But the Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, the tongue that speaketh proud things,

3 The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail, our lips are our own, who shall be Lord over us? 

4 Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

5 Therefore, thus saith the Lord, I will arise in that day, I will stand upon the earth, and I will judge the earth for the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy; and their cry hath entered into mine ear. 

5 For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy,

6 Therefore the Lord shall sit in judgment upon all those who say in their hearts, We all sit in safety; and puffeth at him. These are the words of the Lord; yea, pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 

now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.

6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

CHAPTER 13

1 How long, O Lord, wilt thou withdraw thyself from me? How long wilt thou hide thy face from me, that I may not see thee? Wilt thou forget me, and cast me off from thy presence forever? 

1 How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, sorrowing in my heart daily? How long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? 

2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

3 Consider me, O Lord; and hear my cry, O my God; and lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the death of the ungodly; lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him. 

3 Consider and hear me, O Lord my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him;

4 Those that trouble me, rejoice when I am moved;

and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

CHAPTER 14

CHAPTER 14

1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no man that hath seen God. Because he showeth himself not unto us, therefore there is no God.  Behold, they are corrupt; thy have done abominable works, and none of them doeth good. 

1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

2 For the Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, and by his voice said unto his servant, Seek ye among the children of men, to see if there are any that do understand God. And he opened his mouth unto the Lord, and said, Behold, all these who say they are thine. 

2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

3 The Lord answered, and said, They are all gone aside, they are together become filthy, thou canst behold none of them that are doing good, no, not one. 

3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4 All they have for their teachers are workers of iniquity, and there is no knowledge in them. They are they who eat up my people. They eat bread and call not upon the Lord. 

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.

5 They are in great fear, for God dwells in the generation of the righteous. He is the counsel of the poor, because they are ashamed of the wicked, and flee unto the Lord, for their refuge. 

5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

6 They are ashamed of the counsel of the poor because the Lord is his refuge. 

6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.

7 Oh that Zion were established out of heaven, the salvation of Israel. O Lord, when wilt thou establish Zion? When the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, Israel shall be glad.

CHAPTER 16

CHAPTER 16

2 Thou hast said unto me, that thou art the Lord my God, and, My goodness is extended unto thee; 

2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;

3 And to all the saints that dwell in the earth, and the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 

3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

4 And the wicked, there is no delight in them; their sorrows shall be multiplied upon all those who hasten for to seek another god; their drink offerings of blood will I not accept, nor take up their names into my lips. 

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down.

13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down:

14 Deliver my soul from the wicked by thy sword; from men by thy strong hand. Yea, O Lord, from men of the world; for their portion is in their life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy good things; they are full of children, and they die and leave the rest of their inheritance to their babes. 

deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword:

14 From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
