a Ps. 142, title. 1Sa. 22.1; 24.1-4.

BE merciful bunto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in cthe shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.


I will cry unto dGod most high; unto God ethat performeth all things for me.


He fshall send from heaven, and 2save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God gshall send forth his mercy and his truth.


My soul is among hlions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.


Be ithou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.


They jhave prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: kthey have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.


My lheart is 3fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.


mAwake up, my 4glory; awake, *psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.


I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.


For nthy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.


Be othou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.
