I Kings 14-18
Wednesday, May 23, 2018
By Solomon. O God, Thy judgments to the king give, And Thy righteousness to the king's son.
He judgeth Thy people with righteousness, And Thy poor with judgment.
The mountains bear peace to the people, And the heights by righteousness.
He judgeth the poor of the people, Giveth deliverance to the sons of the needy, And bruiseth the oppressor.
They fear Thee with the sun, and before the moon, Generation -- generations.
He cometh down as rain on mown grass, As showers -- sprinkling the earth.
Flourish in his days doth the righteous, And abundance of peace till the moon is not.
And he ruleth from sea unto sea, And from the river unto the ends of earth.
Before him bow do the inhabitants of the dry places, And his enemies lick the dust.
Kings of Tarshish and of the isles send back a present. Kings of Sheba and Seba a reward bring near.
And all kings do bow themselves to him, All nations do serve him,
For he delivereth the needy who crieth, And the poor when he hath no helper,
He hath pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he saveth,
From fraud and from violence he redeemeth their soul, And precious is their blood in his eyes.
And he liveth, and giveth to him of the gold of Sheba, And prayeth for him continually, All the day he doth bless him.
There is a handful of corn in the earth, On the top of mountains, Shake like Lebanon doth its fruit, And they flourish out of the city as the herb of the earth.
His name is to the age, Before the sun is his name continued, And they bless themselves in him, All nations do pronounce him happy.
Blessed is Jehovah God, God of Israel, He alone is doing wonders,
And blessed [is] the Name of His honour to the age, And the whole earth is filled [with] His honour. Amen, and amen!
The prayers of David son of Jesse have been ended.
A Psalm of Asaph. Only -- good to Israel [is] God, to the clean of heart. And I -- as a little thing, My feet have been turned aside,
As nothing, have my steps slipped, For I have been envious of the boastful,
The peace of the wicked I see, That there are no bands at their death,
And their might [is] firm.
In the misery of mortals they are not, And with common men they are not plagued.
Therefore hath pride encircled them, Violence covereth them as a dress.
Their eye hath come out from fat. The imaginations of the heart transgressed;
They do corruptly, And they speak in the wickedness of oppression, From on high they speak.
They have set in the heavens their mouth, And their tongue walketh in the earth.
Therefore do His people return hither, And waters of fulness are wrung out to them.
And they have said, `How hath God known? And is there knowledge in the Most High?'
Lo, these [are] the wicked and easy ones of the age, They have increased strength.
Only -- a vain thing! I have purified my heart, And I wash in innocency my hands,
And I am plagued all the day, And my reproof [is] every morning.
If I have said, `I recount thus,' Lo, a generation of Thy sons I have deceived.
And I think to know this, Perverseness it [is] in mine eyes,
Till I come in to the sanctuaries of God, I attend to their latter end.
Only, in slippery places Thou dost set them, Thou hast caused them to fall to desolations.
How have they become a desolation as in a moment, They have been ended -- consumed from terrors.
As a dream from awakening, O Lord, In awaking, their image Thou despisest.
For my heart doth show itself violent, And my reins prick themselves,
And I am brutish, and do not know. A beast I have been with Thee.
And I [am] continually with Thee, Thou hast laid hold on my right hand.
With Thy counsel Thou dost lead me, And after honour dost receive me.
Whom have I in the heavens? And with Thee none I have desired in earth.
Consumed hath been my flesh and my heart, The rock of my heart and my portion [is] God to the age.
For, lo, those far from Thee do perish, Thou hast cut off every one, Who is going a whoring from Thee.
And I -- nearness of God to me [is] good, I have placed in the Lord Jehovah my refuge, To recount all Thy works!
An Instruction of Asaph. Why, O God, hast Thou cast off for ever? Thine anger smoketh against the flock of Thy pasture.
Remember Thy company. Thou didst purchase of old, Thou didst redeem the rod of Thy inheritance, This mount Zion -- Thou didst dwell in it.
Lift up Thy steps to the perpetual desolations, Everything the enemy did wickedly in the sanctuary.
Roared have thine adversaries, In the midst of Thy meeting-places, They have set their ensigns as ensigns.
He is known as one bringing in on high Against a thicket of wood -- axes.
And now, its carvings together With axe and hatchet they break down,
They have sent into fire Thy sanctuary, to the earth they polluted the tabernacle of Thy name,
They said in their hearts, `Let us oppress them together,' They did burn all the meeting-places of God in the land.
Our ensigns we have not seen, There is no more a prophet, Nor with us is one knowing how long.
Till when, O God, doth an adversary reproach? Doth an enemy despise thy name for ever?
Why dost Thou turn back Thy hand, Even Thy right hand? From the midst of Thy bosom remove [it].
And God [is] my king of old, Working salvation in the midst of the earth.
Thou hast broken by Thy strength a sea-[monster], Thou hast shivered Heads of dragons by the waters,
Thou hast broken the heads of leviathan, Thou makest him food, For the people of the dry places.
Thou hast cleaved a fountain and a stream, Thou hast dried up perennial flowings.
Thine [is] the day, also Thine [is] the night, Thou hast prepared a light giver -- the sun.
Thou hast set up all the borders of earth, Summer and winter Thou hast formed them.
Remember this -- an enemy reproached Jehovah, And a foolish people have despised Thy name.
Give not up to a company, The soul of Thy turtle-dove, The company of Thy poor ones forget not for ever.
Look attentively to the covenant, For the dark places of earth, Have been full of habitations of violence.
Let not the oppressed turn back ashamed, Let the poor and needy praise Thy name,
Arise, O God, plead Thy plea, Remember Thy reproach from a fool all the day.
Forget not the voice of Thine adversaries, The noise of Thy withstanders is going up continually!
