Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Dauid shewing his confidence in God, craueth his helpe. 7 He reioyceth in his mercy. 9 He prayeth in his calamitie. 19 He prayseth God for his goodnesse.
1[To the chiefe Musician, A Psalme of Dauid.] In thee, O Lord, doe I put my trust, let me neuer be ashamed: deliuer me in thy righteousnesse.1
2Bowe downe thine eare to me, deliuer me speedily: be thou my strong rocke, for an house of defence to saue me.2
3For thou art my rocke and my fortresse: therfore for thy names sake lead me, and guide me.
4Pull me out of the net, that they haue layd priuily for me: for thou art my strength.
5Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed mee, O Lord God of trueth.5
6I haue hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord.
7I will be glad, and reioyce in thy mercie: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast knowen my soule in aduersities;
8And hast not shut me vp into the hand of the enemie: thou hast set my feete in a large roome.
9Haue mercy vpon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; mine eie is consumed with griefe, yea my soule and my belly.
10For my life is spent with griefe, and my yeeres with sighing: my strength faileth, because of mine iniquitie, and my bones are consumed.
11I was a reproch among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a feare to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without, fled from me.
A prayer of the faithfull.
12I am forgotten as a dead man out of minde: I am like a broken vessell.12
13For I haue heard the slaunder of many, feare was on euery side: while they tooke counsell together against me, they deuised to take away my life.
14But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I sayd, Thou art my God.
15My times are in thy hand: deliuer me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.
16Make thy face to shine vpon thy seruant: saue me for thy mercies sake.
17Let mee not be ashamed, O Lord, for I haue called vpon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the graue.17
18Let the lying lippes be put to silence: which speake grieuous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.18
19O how great is thy goodnesse, which thou hast layd vp for them that feare thee: which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee, before the sonnes of men!19
20Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence, from the pride of man: thou shalt keepe them secretly in a pauilion, from the strife of tongues.
21Blessed be the Lord; for hee hath shewed me his maruellous kindnesse, in a strong citie.21
22For I sayd in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eies: Neuerthelesse thou heardest the voice of my supplications, when I cryed vnto thee.
23O loue the Lord, all yee his Saints: for the Lord preserueth the faithfull, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
24Be of good courage, and hee shall strenghten your heart: all ye that hope in the Lord.24
