5 Thou hast spread a table before me ; in the presence of mine enemies, thou anointest mine head, and makest my cup to overflow.

6 Ah! may thy bounteous mercy follow me all the days of my life ; may I dwell in the house of JEHOVAH as long as I live.

PSALM XXIV. THE earth is JEHOVAH's, and all that it contains; the world, and all those who dwell therein :

2 For he it was who laid the foundation above the seas ; and established it above the floods.

3 Who shall ascend the mountain of JEHOVAH ? and who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He who hath clean hands, and a pure heart ; and who hath not addicted his mind to falsehood, nor sworn with intent to deceive.

PSALM XXVI.

JUDGE my cause, o JEHOVAH! I have walked in innocence : my trust hath been in JEHOVAH; therefore, I shall not fall.

2 Examine me, O JEHOVAH ! and scrutinize me ; search thou my reins and mine heart.

3 For thy loving-kindness hath ever been before mine eyes ; and I have walked according to thy truth. 4 I have never dwelt with deceitful

persons; neither have I associated with hypocrites. 5 I hate the

company

of the malevolent; and sit not down with the wicked.

6 I wash mine hands in innocence, when I approach thine altar, O JEHOVAH !

7 That I may inake my voice to be heard in thy praise ; and recount all thy wonderful works.

8 I love, O JEHOVAH ! the house in which thou dwellest ; and the place where thy glory resideth.

9 Join not my soul with sinners ; nor my life with blood-thirsty men :
