Ps 78:11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
Ps 78:12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, [in] the field of Zoan.
Ps 78:13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
Ps 78:14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
Ps 78:15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave [them] drink as [out of] the great depths.
Ps 78:16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
Ps 78:17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
Ps 78:18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
Ps 78:19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
Ps 78:20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
Ps 78:21 Therefore the [LORD] heard [this], and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
Ps 78:22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
Ps 78:23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
Ps 78:24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
Ps 78:25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
Ps 78:26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.
Ps 78:27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
Ps 78:28 And he let [it] fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
Ps 78:29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
Ps 78:30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat [was] yet in their mouths,
Ps 78:31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel.
Ps 78:32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
Ps 78:33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
Ps 78:34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.
Ps 78:35 And they remembered that God [was] their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
Ps 78:36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
Ps 78:37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
Ps 78:38 But he, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
Ps 78:39 For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
Ps 78:40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, [and] grieve him in the desert!
Ps 78:41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
Ps 78:42 They remembered not his hand, [nor] the day when he delivered them from the enemy.
Ps 78:43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:
Ps 78:44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
Ps 78:45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
Ps 78:46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.
Ps 78:47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
Ps 78:48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
Ps 78:49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels [among them].
Ps 78:50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
Ps 78:51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of [their] strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
Ps 78:52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
Ps 78:53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
Ps 78:54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased.
Ps 78:55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.
Ps 78:56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:
Ps 78:57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
Ps 78:58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
Ps 78:59 When God heard [this], he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
Ps 78:60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent [which] he placed among men;
Ps 78:61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy's hand.
Ps 78:62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
Ps 78:63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
Ps 78:64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
Ps 78:65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
Ps 78:66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
Ps 78:67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
Ps 78:68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
Ps 78:69 And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established for ever.
Ps 78:70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
Ps 78:71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
Ps 78:72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

PSALM 79.

A Psalm of Asaph.

Ps 79:1 O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.
Ps 79:2 The dead bodies of thy servants have they given [to be] meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth.
Ps 79:3 Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and [there was] none to bury [them].
Ps 79:4 We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
Ps 79:5 How long, [LORD]? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
Ps 79:6 Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.
Ps 79:7 For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.
Ps 79:8 O remember not against us former iniquities: let thy tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.
Ps 79:9 Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake.
Ps 79:10 Wherefore should the heathen say, Where [is] their God? let him be known among the heathen in our sight [by] the revenging of the blood of thy servants [which is] shed.
Ps 79:11 Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are appointed to die;
Ps 79:12 And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach, wherewith they have reproached thee, O Lord.
Ps 79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.

PSALM 80.

Ps 80:2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come [and] save us.
Ps 80:3 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
Ps 80:4 O [LORD] God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people?
Ps 80:5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
Ps 80:6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves.
Ps 80:7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.
Ps 80:8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
Ps 80:9 Thou preparedst [room] before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.
Ps 80:10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof [were like] the goodly cedars.
Ps 80:11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river.
Ps 80:12 Why hast thou [then] broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?
Ps 80:13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
Ps 80:14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine;
Ps 80:15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch [that] thou madest strong for thyself.
Ps 80:16 [It is] burned with fire, [it is] cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
Ps 80:17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man [whom] thou madest strong for thyself.
Ps 80:18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
Ps 80:19 Turn us again, O [LORD] God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Ps 81:5 This he ordained in Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: [where] I heard a language [that] I understood not.
Ps 81:6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.

Ps 81:11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
Ps 81:12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: [and] they walked in their own counsels.
Ps 81:13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, [and] Israel had walked in my ways!
Ps 81:14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
Ps 81:15 The haters of the [LORD] should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
Ps 81:16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

Ps 83:16 Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O [LORD].
Ps 83:17 Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish:

Ps 88:3 For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
Ps 88:4 I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a man [that hath] no strength:

Ps 89:39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
Ps 89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
Ps 89:41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to his neighbours.
Ps 89:42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
Ps 89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.
Ps 89:44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.
Ps 89:45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.
Ps 89:46 How long, [LORD]? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?
Ps 89:47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?
Ps 89:48 What man [is he that] liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
Ps 89:49 Lord, where [are] thy former lovingkindnesses, [which] thou swarest unto David in thy truth?
Ps 89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; [how] I do bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty people;
Ps 89:51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O [LORD]; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
Ps 89:52 Blessed [be] the [LORD] for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

Ps 106:3 Blessed [are] they that keep judgment, [and] he that doeth righteousness at all times.
Ps 106:4 Remember me, O [LORD], with the favour [that thou bearest unto] thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;
Ps 106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
Ps 106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.
Ps 106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked [him] at the sea, [even] at the Red sea.
Ps 106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.
Ps 106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.
Ps 106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated [them], and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
Ps 106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.
Ps 106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.
Ps 106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:
Ps 106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.
Ps 106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
Ps 106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, [and] Aaron the saint of the [LORD].
Ps 106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
Ps 106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

Ps 106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
Ps 106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, [and] terrible things by the Red sea.
Ps 106:23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy [them].
Ps 106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:
Ps 106:25 But murmured in their tents, [and] hearkened not unto the voice of the [LORD].
Ps 106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:
Ps 106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.
Ps 106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baal-peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
Ps 106:29 Thus they provoked [him] to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.
Ps 106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and [so] the plague was stayed.
Ps 106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.
Ps 106:32 They angered [him] also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:
Ps 106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
Ps 106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the [LORD] commanded them:
Ps 106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
Ps 106:36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
Ps 106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
Ps 106:38 And shed innocent blood, [even] the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
Ps 106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.
Ps 106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the [LORD] kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
Ps 106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.
Ps 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.
Ps 106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked [him] with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.
Ps 106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:
Ps 106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.
Ps 106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.
Ps 106:47 Save us, O [LORD] our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, [and] to triumph in thy praise.
Ps 106:48 Blessed [be] the [LORD] God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the [LORD].

Ps 107:26 They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
Ps 107:27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
