Why does it have strange spelling?


1 Dauid praying to be restored to the Temple, promiseth to serue God ioyfully. 5 He encourageth his soule to trust in God.

1 Iudge mee, O God, and plead my cause against an vngodly nation; O deliuer me from the deceitfull and vniust man.1

2 For thou art the God of my strength, why doest thou cast me off? why goe I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

3 O send out thy light & thy trueth; let them leade mee, let them bring mee vnto thy holy hill, and to thy Tabernacles.

4 Then will I goe vnto the Altar of God, vnto God my exceeding ioy: yea vpon the harpe will I praise thee, O God, my God.4

5 Why art thou cast downe, O my soule? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God, for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.5
