Why does it have strange spelling?
1 The Psalmist by his example inciteth others to praise God, for his glorious, 5 And gracious workes. 10 The feare of God breedeth true wisedome.
Praise yee the Lord. I will praise the Lord with my whole heart: in the assembly of the vpright, and in the Congregation.1
The workes of the Lord are great: sought out of all them that haue pleasure therein.
His worke is honourable and glorious: and his righteousnesse endureth for euer.
Hee hath made his wonderfull works to be remembred: the Lord is gracious, and full of compassion.
He hath giuen meate vnto them that feare him: he will euer be mindfull of his couenant.5
He hath shewed his people the power of his workes: that he may giue them the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands are veritie and iudgment: all his commandements are sure.
They stand fast for euer and euer: and are done in trueth and vprightnes.8
He sent redemption vnto his people, hee hath commanded his couenant for euer: holy and reuerend is his Name.
The feare of the Lord is the beginning of wisedome, a good vnderstanding haue all they that doe his commandements: his praise endureth for euer.10
