Psalms 93 & 94

Dominus regnavit

THE Lord is King, and hath put on glorious apparel : the Lord hath put on his apparel, and girded himself with strength.
2. He hath made the round world so sure : that it cannot be moved.
3. Ever since the world began hath thy seat been prepared : thou art from everlasting.
4. The floods are risen, O Lord, the floods have lift up their voice : the floods lift up their waves.
5. The waves of the sea are mighty, and rage horribly : but yet the Lord, who dwelleth on high, is mightier.
6. Thy testimonies, O Lord, are very sure : holiness becometh thine house for ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Deus ultionum

O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth : thou God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2. Arise, thou Judge of the world : and reward the proud after their deserving.
3. Lord, how long shall the ungodly : how long shall the ungodly triumph?
4. How long shall all wicked doers speak so disdainfully : and make such proud boasting?
5. They smite down thy people, O Lord : and trouble thine heritage.
6. They murder the widow and the stranger : and put the fatherless to death.
7. And yet they say, Tush, the Lord shall not see : neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8. Take heed, ye unwise among the people : O ye fools, when will ye understand?
9. He that planted the ear, shall he not hear : or he that made the eye, shall he not see?
10. Or he that nurtureth the heathen : it is he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he punish?
11. The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man : that they are but vain.
12. Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord : and teachest him in thy law;
13. That thou mayest give him patience in time of adversity : until the pit be digged up for the ungodly.
14. For the Lord will not fail his people : neither will he forsake his inheritance;
15. Until righteousness turn again unto judgement : all such as are true in heart shall follow it.
16. Who will rise up with me against the wicked : or who will take my part against the evil-doers?
17. If the Lord had not helped me : it had not failed but my soul had been put to silence.
18. But when I said, My foot hath slipt : thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.
19. In the multitude of the sorrows that I had in my heart : thy comforts have refreshed my soul.
20. Wilt thou have any thing to do with the stool of wickedness : which imagineth mischief as a law?
21. They gather them together against the soul of the righteous : and condemn the innocent blood.
22. But the Lord is my refuge : and my God is the strength of my confidence.
23. He shall recompense them their wickedness, and destroy them in their own malice : yea, the Lord our God shall destroy them.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
