Psalms תְּהִלִּים

Chapter 105

א הוֹדוּ לַיהוָה, קִרְאוּ בִשְׁמוֹ; הוֹדִיעוּ בָעַמִּים, עֲלִילוֹתָיו. 1 O give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name; make known His doings among the peoples.
ב שִׁירוּ-לוֹ, זַמְּרוּ-לוֹ; שִׂיחוּ, בְּכָל-נִפְלְאוֹתָיו. 2 Sing unto Him, sing praises unto Him; speak ye of all His marvellous works.
ג הִתְהַלְלוּ, בְּשֵׁם קָדְשׁוֹ; יִשְׂמַח, לֵב מְבַקְשֵׁי יְהוָה. 3 Glory ye in His holy name; let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
ד דִּרְשׁוּ יְהוָה וְעֻזּוֹ; בַּקְּשׁוּ פָנָיו תָּמִיד. 4 Seek ye the LORD and His strength; seek His face continually.
ה זִכְרוּ–נִפְלְאוֹתָיו אֲשֶׁר-עָשָׂה; מֹפְתָיו, וּמִשְׁפְּטֵי-פִיו. 5 Remember His marvellous works that He hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;
ו זֶרַע, אַבְרָהָם עַבְדּוֹ: בְּנֵי יַעֲקֹב בְּחִירָיו. 6 O ye seed of Abraham His servant, ye children of Jacob, His chosen ones.
ז הוּא, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ; בְּכָל-הָאָרֶץ, מִשְׁפָּטָיו. 7 He is the LORD our God; His judgments are in all the earth.
ח זָכַר לְעוֹלָם בְּרִיתוֹ; דָּבָר צִוָּה, לְאֶלֶף דּוֹר. 8 He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations;
ט אֲשֶׁר כָּרַת, אֶת-אַבְרָהָם; וּשְׁבוּעָתוֹ לְיִשְׂחָק. 9 [The covenant] which He made with Abraham, and His oath unto Isaac;
י וַיַּעֲמִידֶהָ לְיַעֲקֹב לְחֹק; לְיִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּרִית עוֹלָם. 10 And He established it unto Jacob for a statute, to Israel for an everlasting covenant;
יא לֵאמֹר–לְךָ, אֶתֵּן אֶת-אֶרֶץ-כְּנָעַן: חֶבֶל, נַחֲלַתְכֶם. 11 Saying: ‘Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance.’
יב בִּהְיוֹתָם, מְתֵי מִסְפָּר; כִּמְעַט, וְגָרִים בָּהּ. 12 When they were but a few men in number. Yea, very few, and sojourners in it,
יג וַיִּתְהַלְּכוּ, מִגּוֹי אֶל-גּוֹי; מִמַּמְלָכָה, אֶל-עַם אַחֵר. 13 And when they went about from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people,
יד לֹא-הִנִּיחַ אָדָם לְעָשְׁקָם; וַיּוֹכַח עֲלֵיהֶם מְלָכִים. 14 He suffered no man to do them wrong, yea, for their sake He reproved kings:
טו אַל-תִּגְּעוּ בִמְשִׁיחָי; וְלִנְבִיאַי, אַל-תָּרֵעוּ. 15 ‘Touch not Mine anointed ones, and do My prophets no harm.’
טז וַיִּקְרָא רָעָב, עַל-הָאָרֶץ; כָּל-מַטֵּה-לֶחֶם שָׁבָר. 16 And He called a famine upon the land; He broke the whole staff of bread.
יז שָׁלַח לִפְנֵיהֶם אִישׁ; לְעֶבֶד, נִמְכַּר יוֹסֵף. 17 He sent a man before them; Joseph was sold for a servant;
יח עִנּוּ בַכֶּבֶל רגליו (רַגְלוֹ); בַּרְזֶל, בָּאָה נַפְשׁוֹ. 18 His feet they hurt with fetters, his person was laid in iron;
יט עַד-עֵת בֹּא-דְבָרוֹ– אִמְרַת יְהוָה צְרָפָתְהוּ. 19 Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him.
כ שָׁלַח מֶלֶךְ, וַיַתִּירֵהוּ; מֹשֵׁל עַמִּים, וַיְפַתְּחֵהוּ. 20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the peoples, and set him free.
כא שָׂמוֹ אָדוֹן לְבֵיתוֹ; וּמֹשֵׁל, בְּכָל-קִנְיָנוֹ. 21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his possessions;
כב לֶאְסֹר שָׂרָיו בְּנַפְשׁוֹ; וּזְקֵנָיו יְחַכֵּם. 22 To bind his princes at his pleasure, and teach his elders wisdom.
כג וַיָּבֹא יִשְׂרָאֵל מִצְרָיִם; וְיַעֲקֹב, גָּר בְּאֶרֶץ-חָם. 23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
כד וַיֶּפֶר אֶת-עַמּוֹ מְאֹד; וַיַּעֲצִמֵהוּ, מִצָּרָיו. 24 And He increased His people greatly, and made them too mighty for their adversaries.
כה הָפַךְ לִבָּם, לִשְׂנֹא עַמּוֹ; לְהִתְנַכֵּל, בַּעֲבָדָיו. 25 He turned their heart to hate His people, to deal craftily with His servants.
כו שָׁלַח, מֹשֶׁה עַבְדּוֹ; אַהֲרֹן, אֲשֶׁר בָּחַר-בּוֹ. 26 He sent Moses His servant, and Aaron whom He had chosen.
כז שָׂמוּ-בָם, דִּבְרֵי אֹתוֹתָיו; וּמֹפְתִים, בְּאֶרֶץ חָם. 27 They wrought among them His manifold signs, and wonders in the land of Ham.
כח שָׁלַח חֹשֶׁךְ, וַיַּחְשִׁךְ; וְלֹא-מָרוּ, אֶת-דבריו (דְּבָרוֹ). 28 He sent darkness, and it was dark; and they rebelled not against His word.
כט הָפַךְ אֶת-מֵימֵיהֶם לְדָם; וַיָּמֶת, אֶת-דְּגָתָם. 29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
ל שָׁרַץ אַרְצָם צְפַרְדְּעִים; בְּחַדְרֵי, מַלְכֵיהֶם. 30 Their land swarmed with frogs, in the chambers of their kings.
לא אָמַר, וַיָּבֹא עָרֹב; כִּנִּים, בְּכָל-גְּבוּלָם. 31 He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, and gnats in all their borders.
לב נָתַן גִּשְׁמֵיהֶם בָּרָד; אֵשׁ לֶהָבוֹת בְּאַרְצָם. 32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
לג וַיַּךְ גַּפְנָם, וּתְאֵנָתָם; וַיְשַׁבֵּר, עֵץ גְּבוּלָם. 33 He smote their vines also and their fig-trees; and broke the trees of their borders.
לד אָמַר, וַיָּבֹא אַרְבֶּה; וְיֶלֶק, וְאֵין מִסְפָּר. 34 He spoke, and the locust came, and the canker-worm without number,
לה וַיֹּאכַל כָּל-עֵשֶׂב בְּאַרְצָם; וַיֹּאכַל, פְּרִי אַדְמָתָם. 35 And did eat up every herb in their land, and did eat up the fruit of their ground.
לו וַיַּךְ כָּל-בְּכוֹר בְּאַרְצָם; רֵאשִׁית, לְכָל-אוֹנָם. 36 He smote also all the first-born in their land, the first-fruits of all their strength.
לז וַיּוֹצִיאֵם, בְּכֶסֶף וְזָהָב; וְאֵין בִּשְׁבָטָיו כּוֹשֵׁל. 37 And He brought them forth with silver and gold; and there was none that stumbled among His tribes.
לח שָׂמַח מִצְרַיִם בְּצֵאתָם: כִּי-נָפַל פַּחְדָּם עֲלֵיהֶם. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed; for the fear of them had fallen upon them.
לט פָּרַשׂ עָנָן לְמָסָךְ; וְאֵשׁ, לְהָאִיר לָיְלָה. 39 He spread a cloud for a screen; and fire to give light in the night.
מ שָׁאַל, וַיָּבֵא שְׂלָו; וְלֶחֶם שָׁמַיִם, יַשְׂבִּיעֵם. 40 They asked, and He brought quails, and gave them in plenty the bread of heaven.
מא פָּתַח צוּר, וַיָּזוּבוּ מָיִם; הָלְכוּ, בַּצִּיּוֹת נָהָר. 41 He opened the rock, and waters gushed out; they ran, a river in the dry places.
מב כִּי-זָכַר, אֶת-דְּבַר קָדְשׁוֹ; אֶת-אַבְרָהָם עַבְדּוֹ. 42 For He remembered His holy word unto Abraham His servant;
מג וַיּוֹצִא עַמּוֹ בְשָׂשׂוֹן; בְּרִנָּה, אֶת-בְּחִירָיו. 43 And He brought forth His people with joy, His chosen ones with singing.
מד וַיִּתֵּן לָהֶם, אַרְצוֹת גּוֹיִם; וַעֲמַל לְאֻמִּים יִירָשׁוּ. 44 And He gave them the lands of the nations, and they took the labour of the peoples in possession;
מה בַּעֲבוּר, יִשְׁמְרוּ חֻקָּיו– וְתוֹרֹתָיו יִנְצֹרוּ;
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 45 That they might keep His statutes, and observe His laws. {N}
Hallelujah.
Chapter 106

א הַלְלוּ-יָהּ:
הוֹדוּ לַיהוָה כִּי-טוֹב– כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ. 1 Hallelujah. {N}
O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever.
ב מִי–יְמַלֵּל, גְּבוּרוֹת יְהוָה; יַשְׁמִיעַ, כָּל-תְּהִלָּתוֹ. 2 Who can express the mighty acts of the LORD, or make all His praise to be heard?
ג אַשְׁרֵי, שֹׁמְרֵי מִשְׁפָּט; עֹשֵׂה צְדָקָה בְכָל-עֵת. 3 Happy are they that keep justice, that do righteousness at all times.
ד זָכְרֵנִי יְהוָה, בִּרְצוֹן עַמֶּךָ; פָּקְדֵנִי, בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ. 4 Remember me, O LORD, when Thou favourest Thy people; O think of me at Thy salvation;
ה לִרְאוֹת, בְּטוֹבַת בְּחִירֶיךָ– לִשְׂמֹחַ, בְּשִׂמְחַת גּוֹיֶךָ;
לְהִתְהַלֵּל, עִם-נַחֲלָתֶךָ. 5 That I may behold the prosperity of Thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Thy nation, {N}
that I may glory with Thine inheritance.
ו חָטָאנוּ עִם-אֲבוֹתֵינוּ; הֶעֱוִינוּ הִרְשָׁעְנוּ. 6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have done iniquitously, we have dealt wickedly.
ז אֲבוֹתֵינוּ בְמִצְרַיִם, לֹא-הִשְׂכִּילוּ נִפְלְאוֹתֶיךָ–
לֹא זָכְרוּ, אֶת-רֹב חֲסָדֶיךָ;
וַיַּמְרוּ עַל-יָם בְּיַם-סוּף. 7 Our fathers in Egypt gave no heed unto Thy wonders; {N}
they remembered not the multitude of Thy mercies; {N}
but were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
ח וַיּוֹשִׁיעֵם, לְמַעַן שְׁמוֹ– לְהוֹדִיעַ, אֶת-גְּבוּרָתוֹ. 8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake, that He might make His mighty power to be known.
ט וַיִּגְעַר בְּיַם-סוּף, וַיֶּחֱרָב; וַיּוֹלִיכֵם בַּתְּהֹמוֹת, כַּמִּדְבָּר. 9 And He rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up; and He led them through the depths, as through a wilderness.
י וַיּוֹשִׁיעֵם, מִיַּד שׂוֹנֵא; וַיִּגְאָלֵם, מִיַּד אוֹיֵב. 10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.
יא וַיְכַסּוּ-מַיִם צָרֵיהֶם; אֶחָד מֵהֶם, לֹא נוֹתָר. 11 And the waters covered their adversaries; there was not one of them left.
יב וַיַּאֲמִינוּ בִדְבָרָיו; יָשִׁירוּ, תְּהִלָּתוֹ. 12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise.
יג מִהֲרוּ, שָׁכְחוּ מַעֲשָׂיו; לֹא-חִכּוּ, לַעֲצָתוֹ. 13 They soon forgot His works; they waited not for His counsel;
יד וַיִּתְאַוּוּ תַאֲוָה, בַּמִּדְבָּר; וַיְנַסּוּ-אֵל, בִּישִׁימוֹן. 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tried God in the desert.
טו וַיִּתֵּן לָהֶם, שֶׁאֱלָתָם; וַיְשַׁלַּח רָזוֹן בְּנַפְשָׁם. 15 And He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
טז וַיְקַנְאוּ לְמֹשֶׁה, בַּמַּחֲנֶה; לְאַהֲרֹן, קְדוֹשׁ יְהוָה. 16 They were jealous also of Moses in the camp, and of Aaron the holy one of the LORD.
יז תִּפְתַּח-אֶרֶץ, וַתִּבְלַע דָּתָן; וַתְּכַס, עַל-עֲדַת אֲבִירָם. 17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.
יח וַתִּבְעַר-אֵשׁ בַּעֲדָתָם; לֶהָבָה, תְּלַהֵט רְשָׁעִים. 18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.
יט יַעֲשׂוּ-עֵגֶל בְּחֹרֵב; וַיִּשְׁתַּחֲווּ, לְמַסֵּכָה. 19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped a molten image.
כ וַיָּמִירוּ אֶת-כְּבוֹדָם; בְּתַבְנִית שׁוֹר, אֹכֵל עֵשֶׂב. 20 Thus they exchanged their glory for the likeness of an ox that eateth grass.
כא שָׁכְחוּ, אֵל מוֹשִׁיעָם– עֹשֶׂה גְדֹלוֹת בְּמִצְרָיִם. 21 They forgot God their saviour, who had done great things in Egypt;
כב נִפְלָאוֹת, בְּאֶרֶץ חָם; נוֹרָאוֹת, עַל-יַם-סוּף. 22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, terrible things by the Red Sea.
כג וַיֹּאמֶר, לְהַשְׁמִידָם:
לוּלֵי, מֹשֶׁה בְחִירוֹ– עָמַד בַּפֶּרֶץ לְפָנָיו;
לְהָשִׁיב חֲמָתוֹ, מֵהַשְׁחִית. 23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, {N}
had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach, {N}
to turn back His wrath, lest He should destroy them.
כד וַיִּמְאֲסוּ, בְּאֶרֶץ חֶמְדָּה; לֹא-הֶאֱמִינוּ, לִדְבָרוֹ. 24 Moreover, they scorned the desirable land, they believed not His word;
כה וַיֵּרָגְנוּ בְאָהֳלֵיהֶם; לֹא שָׁמְעוּ, בְּקוֹל יְהוָה. 25 And they murmured in their tents, they hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.
כו וַיִּשָּׂא יָדוֹ לָהֶם– לְהַפִּיל אוֹתָם, בַּמִּדְבָּר. 26 Therefore He swore concerning them, that He would overthrow them in the wilderness;
כז וּלְהַפִּיל זַרְעָם, בַּגּוֹיִם; וּלְזָרוֹתָם, בָּאֲרָצוֹת. 27 And that He would cast out their seed among the nations, and scatter them in the lands.
כח וַיִּצָּמְדוּ, לְבַעַל פְּעוֹר; וַיֹּאכְלוּ, זִבְחֵי מֵתִים. 28 They joined themselves also unto Baal of Peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.
כט וַיַּכְעִיסוּ, בְּמַעַלְלֵיהֶם; וַתִּפְרָץ-בָּם, מַגֵּפָה. 29 Thus they provoked Him with their doings, and the plague broke in upon them.
ל וַיַּעֲמֹד פִּינְחָס, וַיְפַלֵּל; וַתֵּעָצַר, הַמַּגֵּפָה. 30 Then stood up Phinehas, and wrought judgment, and so the plague was stayed.
לא וַתֵּחָשֶׁב לוֹ, לִצְדָקָה; לְדֹר וָדֹר, עַד-עוֹלָם. 31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness, unto all generations for ever.
לב וַיַּקְצִיפוּ, עַל-מֵי מְרִיבָה; וַיֵּרַע לְמֹשֶׁה, בַּעֲבוּרָם. 32 They angered Him also at the waters of Meribah, and it went ill with Moses because of them;
לג כִּי-הִמְרוּ אֶת-רוּחוֹ; וַיְבַטֵּא, בִּשְׂפָתָיו. 33 For they embittered his spirit, and he spoke rashly with his lips.
לד לֹא-הִשְׁמִידוּ, אֶת-הָעַמִּים– אֲשֶׁר אָמַר יְהוָה לָהֶם. 34 They did not destroy the peoples, as the LORD commanded them;
לה וַיִּתְעָרְבוּ בַגּוֹיִם; וַיִּלְמְדוּ, מַעֲשֵׂיהֶם. 35 But mingled themselves with the nations, and learned their works;
לו וַיַּעַבְדוּ אֶת-עֲצַבֵּיהֶם; וַיִּהְיוּ לָהֶם לְמוֹקֵשׁ. 36 And they served their idols, which became a snare unto them;
לז וַיִּזְבְּחוּ אֶת-בְּנֵיהֶם, וְאֶת-בְּנוֹתֵיהֶם– לַשֵּׁדִים. 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto demons,
לח וַיִּשְׁפְּכוּ דָם נָקִי, דַּם-בְּנֵיהֶם וּבְנוֹתֵיהֶם– אֲשֶׁר זִבְּחוּ, לַעֲצַבֵּי כְנָעַן;
וַתֶּחֱנַף הָאָרֶץ, בַּדָּמִים. 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; {N}
and the land was polluted with blood.
לט וַיִּטְמְאוּ בְמַעֲשֵׂיהֶם; וַיִּזְנוּ, בְּמַעַלְלֵיהֶם. 39 Thus were they defiled with their works, and went astray in their doings.
מ וַיִּחַר-אַף יְהוָה בְּעַמּוֹ; וַיְתָעֵב, אֶת-נַחֲלָתוֹ. 40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against His people, and He abhorred His inheritance.
מא וַיִּתְּנֵם בְּיַד-גּוֹיִם; וַיִּמְשְׁלוּ בָהֶם, שֹׂנְאֵיהֶם. 41 And He gave them into the hand of the nations; and they that hated them ruled over them.
מב וַיִּלְחָצוּם אוֹיְבֵיהֶם; וַיִּכָּנְעוּ, תַּחַת יָדָם. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were subdued under their hand.
מג פְּעָמִים רַבּוֹת, יַצִּילֵם:
וְהֵמָּה, יַמְרוּ בַעֲצָתָם; וַיָּמֹכּוּ, בַּעֲו‍ֹנָם. 43 Many times did He deliver them; {N}
but they were rebellious in their counsel, and sank low through their iniquity.
מד וַיַּרְא, בַּצַּר לָהֶם– בְּשָׁמְעוֹ, אֶת-רִנָּתָם. 44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress, when He heard their cry;
מה וַיִּזְכֹּר לָהֶם בְּרִיתוֹ; וַיִּנָּחֵם, כְּרֹב חֲסָדָו. 45 And He remembered for them His covenant, and repented according to the multitude of His mercies.
מו וַיִּתֵּן אוֹתָם לְרַחֲמִים– לִפְנֵי, כָּל-שׁוֹבֵיהֶם. 46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captive.
מז הוֹשִׁיעֵנוּ, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ, וְקַבְּצֵנוּ, מִן-הַגּוֹיִם:
לְהֹדוֹת, לְשֵׁם קָדְשֶׁךָ; לְהִשְׁתַּבֵּחַ, בִּתְהִלָּתֶךָ. 47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, {N}
that we may give thanks unto Thy holy name, that we may triumph in Thy praise.
מח בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִן-הָעוֹלָם וְעַד הָעוֹלָם–
וְאָמַר כָּל-הָעָם אָמֵן:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 48 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting, {N}
and let all the people say: ‘Amen.’ {N}
Hallelujah. {P}
Chapter 107

א הֹדוּ לַיהוָה כִּי-טוֹב: כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ. 1 ‘O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.’
ב יֹאמְרוּ, גְּאוּלֵי יְהוָה– אֲשֶׁר גְּאָלָם, מִיַּד-צָר. 2 So let the redeemed of the LORD say, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the adversary;
ג וּמֵאֲרָצוֹת, קִבְּצָם: מִמִּזְרָח וּמִמַּעֲרָב; מִצָּפוֹן וּמִיָּם. 3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the sea.
ד תָּעוּ בַמִּדְבָּר, בִּישִׁימוֹן דָּרֶךְ; עִיר מוֹשָׁב, לֹא מָצָאוּ. 4 They wandered in the wilderness in a desert way; they found no city of habitation.
ה רְעֵבִים גַּם-צְמֵאִים– נַפְשָׁם, בָּהֶם תִּתְעַטָּף. 5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
ו וַיִּצְעֲקוּ אֶל-יְהוָה, בַּצַּר לָהֶם; מִמְּצוּקוֹתֵיהֶם, יַצִּילֵם. 6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses.
ז וַיַּדְרִיכֵם, בְּדֶרֶךְ יְשָׁרָה– לָלֶכֶת, אֶל-עִיר מוֹשָׁב. 7 And He led them by a straight way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
ח יוֹדוּ לַיהוָה חַסְדּוֹ; וְנִפְלְאוֹתָיו, לִבְנֵי אָדָם. 8 Let them give thanks unto the LORD for His mercy, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
ט כִּי-הִשְׂבִּיעַ, נֶפֶשׁ שֹׁקֵקָה; וְנֶפֶשׁ רְעֵבָה, מִלֵּא-טוֹב. 9 For He hath satisfied the longing soul, and the hungry soul He hath filled with good.
י יֹשְׁבֵי, חֹשֶׁךְ וְצַלְמָוֶת; אֲסִירֵי עֳנִי וּבַרְזֶל. 10 Such as sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron–
יא כִּי-הִמְרוּ אִמְרֵי-אֵל; וַעֲצַת עֶלְיוֹן נָאָצוּ. 11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the Most High.
יב וַיַּכְנַע בֶּעָמָל לִבָּם; כָּשְׁלוּ, וְאֵין עֹזֵר. 12 Therefore He humbled their heart with travail, they stumbled, and there was none to help–
יג וַיִּזְעֲקוּ אֶל-יְהוָה, בַּצַּר לָהֶם; מִמְּצֻקוֹתֵיהֶם, יוֹשִׁיעֵם. 13 They cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses.
יד יוֹצִיאֵם, מֵחֹשֶׁךְ וְצַלְמָוֶת; וּמוֹסְרוֹתֵיהֶם יְנַתֵּק. 14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their bands in sunder.
טו יוֹדוּ לַיהוָה חַסְדּוֹ; וְנִפְלְאוֹתָיו, לִבְנֵי אָדָם. 15 Let them give thanks unto the LORD for His mercy, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
טז כִּי-שִׁבַּר, דַּלְתוֹת נְחֹשֶׁת; וּבְרִיחֵי בַרְזֶל גִּדֵּעַ. 16 For He hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
יז אֱוִלִים, מִדֶּרֶךְ פִּשְׁעָם; וּמֵעֲו‍ֹנֹתֵיהֶם, יִתְעַנּוּ. 17 Crazed because of the way of their transgression, and afflicted because of their iniquities–
יח כָּל-אֹכֶל, תְּתַעֵב נַפְשָׁם; וַיַּגִּיעוּ, עַד-שַׁעֲרֵי מָוֶת. 18 Their soul abhorred all manner of food, and they drew near unto the gates of death–
יט וַיִּזְעֲקוּ אֶל-יְהוָה, בַּצַּר לָהֶם; מִמְּצֻקוֹתֵיהֶם יוֹשִׁיעֵם. 19 They cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses;
כ יִשְׁלַח דְּבָרוֹ, וְיִרְפָּאֵם; וִימַלֵּט, מִשְּׁחִיתוֹתָם. 20 He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their graves.
כא יוֹדוּ לַיהוָה חַסְדּוֹ; וְנִפְלְאוֹתָיו, לִבְנֵי אָדָם. 21 Let them give thanks unto the LORD for His mercy, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
כב וְיִזְבְּחוּ, זִבְחֵי תוֹדָה; וִיסַפְּרוּ מַעֲשָׂיו בְּרִנָּה. 22 And let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with singing.
כג ] יוֹרְדֵי הַיָּם, בָּאֳנִיּוֹת; עֹשֵׂי מְלָאכָה, בְּמַיִם רַבִּים. 23 They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters–
כד ] הֵמָּה רָאוּ, מַעֲשֵׂי יְהוָה; וְנִפְלְאוֹתָיו, בִּמְצוּלָה. 24 These saw the works of the LORD, and His wonders in the deep;
כה ] וַיֹּאמֶר–וַיַּעֲמֵד, רוּחַ סְעָרָה; וַתְּרוֹמֵם גַּלָּיו. 25 For He commanded, and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves thereof;
כו ] יַעֲלוּ שָׁמַיִם, יֵרְדוּ תְהוֹמוֹת; נַפְשָׁם, בְּרָעָה תִתְמוֹגָג. 26 They mounted up to the heaven, they went down to the deeps; their soul melted away because of trouble;
כז ] יָחוֹגּוּ וְיָנוּעוּ, כַּשִּׁכּוֹר; וְכָל-חָכְמָתָם, תִּתְבַּלָּע. 27 They reeled to and fro, and staggered like a drunken man, and all their wisdom was swallowed up–
כח ] וַיִּצְעֲקוּ אֶל-יְהוָה, בַּצַּר לָהֶם; וּמִמְּצוּקֹתֵיהֶם, יוֹצִיאֵם. 28 They cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distresses.
כט יָקֵם סְעָרָה, לִדְמָמָה; וַיֶּחֱשׁוּ, גַּלֵּיהֶם. 29 He made the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof were still.
ל וַיִּשְׂמְחוּ כִי-יִשְׁתֹּקוּ; וַיַּנְחֵם, אֶל-מְחוֹז חֶפְצָם. 30 Then were they glad because they were quiet, and He led them unto their desired haven.
לא יוֹדוּ לַיהוָה חַסְדּוֹ; וְנִפְלְאוֹתָיו, לִבְנֵי אָדָם. 31 Let them give thanks unto the LORD for His mercy, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
לב וִירוֹמְמוּהוּ, בִּקְהַל-עָם; וּבְמוֹשַׁב זְקֵנִים יְהַלְלוּהוּ. 32 Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people, and praise Him in the seat of the elders.
לג יָשֵׂם נְהָרוֹת לְמִדְבָּר; וּמֹצָאֵי מַיִם, לְצִמָּאוֹן. 33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and watersprings into a thirsty ground;
לד אֶרֶץ פְּרִי, לִמְלֵחָה; מֵרָעַת, יוֹשְׁבֵי בָהּ. 34 A fruitful land into a salt waste, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
לה יָשֵׂם מִדְבָּר, לַאֲגַם-מַיִם; וְאֶרֶץ צִיָּה, לְמֹצָאֵי מָיִם. 35 He turneth a wilderness into a pool of water, and a dry land into watersprings.
לו וַיּוֹשֶׁב שָׁם רְעֵבִים; וַיְכוֹנְנוּ, עִיר מוֹשָׁב. 36 And there He maketh the hungry to dwell, and they establish a city of habitation;
לז וַיִּזְרְעוּ שָׂדוֹת, וַיִּטְּעוּ כְרָמִים; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, פְּרִי תְבוּאָה. 37 And sow fields, and plant vineyards, which yield fruits of increase.
לח וַיְבָרְכֵם וַיִּרְבּוּ מְאֹד; וּבְהֶמְתָּם, לֹא יַמְעִיט. 38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly, and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
לט וַיִּמְעֲטוּ וַיָּשֹׁחוּ– מֵעֹצֶר רָעָה וְיָגוֹן. 39 Again, they are minished and dwindle away through oppression of evil and sorrow.
מ ] שֹׁפֵךְ בּוּז, עַל-נְדִיבִים; וַיַּתְעֵם, בְּתֹהוּ לֹא-דָרֶךְ. 40 He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the waste, where there is no way.
מא וַיְשַׂגֵּב אֶבְיוֹן מֵעוֹנִי; וַיָּשֶׂם כַּצֹּאן, מִשְׁפָּחוֹת. 41 Yet setteth He the needy on high from affliction, and maketh his families like a flock.
מב יִרְאוּ יְשָׁרִים וְיִשְׂמָחוּ; וְכָל-עַוְלָה, קָפְצָה פִּיהָ. 42 The upright see it, and are glad; and all iniquity stoppeth her mouth.
מג מִי-חָכָם וְיִשְׁמָר-אֵלֶּה; וְיִתְבּוֹנְנוּ, חַסְדֵי יְהוָה. 43 Whoso is wise, let him observe these things, and let them consider the mercies of the LORD. {P}
Chapter 108

א-ב שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. נָכוֹן לִבִּי אֱלֹהִים; אָשִׁירָה וַאֲזַמְּרָה, אַף-כְּבוֹדִי. 1 A Song, a Psalm of David. 2 My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises, even with my glory.
ג עוּרָה, הַנֵּבֶל וְכִנּוֹר; אָעִירָה שָּׁחַר. 3 Awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake the dawn.
ד אוֹדְךָ בָעַמִּים יְהוָה; וַאֲזַמֶּרְךָ, בַּלְאֻמִּים. 4 I will give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the peoples; and I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations.
ה כִּי-גָדוֹל מֵעַל-שָׁמַיִם חַסְדֶּךָ; וְעַד-שְׁחָקִים אֲמִתֶּךָ. 5 For Thy mercy is great above the heavens, and Thy truth reacheth unto the skies.
ו רוּמָה עַל-שָׁמַיִם אֱלֹהִים; וְעַל כָּל-הָאָרֶץ כְּבוֹדֶךָ. 6 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and Thy glory be above all the earth.
ז לְמַעַן, יֵחָלְצוּן יְדִידֶיךָ; הוֹשִׁיעָה יְמִינְךָ וַעֲנֵנִי. 7 That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand, and answer me.
ח אֱלֹהִים, דִּבֶּר בְּקָדְשׁוֹ–אֶעְלֹזָה: אֲחַלְּקָה שְׁכֶם; וְעֵמֶק סֻכּוֹת אֲמַדֵּד. 8 God spoke in His holiness, that I would exult; that I would divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
ט לִי גִלְעָד, לִי מְנַשֶּׁה, וְאֶפְרַיִם, מָעוֹז רֹאשִׁי; יְהוּדָה, מְחֹקְקִי. 9 Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the defence of my head; Judah is my sceptre.
י מוֹאָב, סִיר רַחְצִי–עַל-אֱדוֹם, אַשְׁלִיךְ נַעֲלִי; עֲלֵי-פְלֶשֶׁת, אֶתְרוֹעָע. 10 Moab is my washpot; upon Edom do I cast my shoe; over Philistia do I cry aloud.
יא מִי יֹבִלֵנִי, עִיר מִבְצָר; מִי נָחַנִי עַד-אֱדוֹם. 11 Who will bring me into the fortified city? Who will lead me unto Edom?
יב הֲלֹא-אֱלֹהִים זְנַחְתָּנוּ; וְלֹא-תֵצֵא אֱלֹהִים, בְּצִבְאֹתֵינוּ. 12 Hast not Thou cast us off, O God? and Thou goest not forth, O God, with our hosts?
יג הָבָה-לָּנוּ עֶזְרָת מִצָּר; וְשָׁוְא, תְּשׁוּעַת אָדָם. 13 Give us help against the adversary; for vain is the help of man.
יד בֵּאלֹהִים נַעֲשֶׂה-חָיִל; וְהוּא, יָבוּס צָרֵינוּ. 14 Through God we shall do valiantly; for He it is that will tread down our adversaries. {P}
Chapter 109

א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר:
אֱלֹהֵי תְהִלָּתִי, אַל-תֶּחֱרַשׁ. 1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David. {N}
O God of my praise, keep not silence;
ב כִּי פִי רָשָׁע, וּפִי-מִרְמָה–עָלַי פָּתָחוּ; דִּבְּרוּ אִתִּי, לְשׁוֹן שָׁקֶר. 2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me; they have spoken unto me with a lying tongue.
ג וְדִבְרֵי שִׂנְאָה סְבָבוּנִי; וַיִּלָּחֲמוּנִי חִנָּם. 3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause.
ד תַּחַת-אַהֲבָתִי יִשְׂטְנוּנִי; וַאֲנִי תְפִלָּה. 4 In return for my love they are my adversaries; but I am all prayer.
ה וַיָּשִׂימוּ עָלַי רָעָה, תַּחַת טוֹבָה; וְשִׂנְאָה, תַּחַת אַהֲבָתִי. 5 And they have laid upon me evil for good, and hatred for my love:
ו הַפְקֵד עָלָיו רָשָׁע; וְשָׂטָן, יַעֲמֹד עַל-יְמִינוֹ. 6 ‘Set Thou a wicked man over him; and let an adversary stand at his right hand.
ז בְּהִשָּׁפְטוֹ, יֵצֵא רָשָׁע; וּתְפִלָּתוֹ, תִּהְיֶה לַחֲטָאָה. 7 When he is judged, let him go forth condemned; and let his prayer be turned into sin.
ח יִהְיוּ-יָמָיו מְעַטִּים; פְּקֻדָּתוֹ, יִקַּח אַחֵר. 8 Let his days be few; let another take his charge.
ט יִהְיוּ-בָנָיו יְתוֹמִים; וְאִשְׁתּוֹ, אַלְמָנָה. 9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
י וְנוֹעַ יָנוּעוּ בָנָיו וְשִׁאֵלוּ; וְדָרְשׁוּ, מֵחָרְבוֹתֵיהֶם. 10 Let his children be vagabonds, and beg; and let them seek their bread out of their desolate places.
יא יְנַקֵּשׁ נוֹשֶׁה, לְכָל-אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ; וְיָבֹזּוּ זָרִים יְגִיעוֹ. 11 Let the creditor distrain all that he hath; and let strangers make spoil of his labour.
יב אַל-יְהִי-לוֹ, מֹשֵׁךְ חָסֶד; וְאַל-יְהִי חוֹנֵן, לִיתוֹמָיו. 12 Let there be none to extend kindness unto him; neither let there be any to be gracious unto his fatherless children.
יג יְהִי-אַחֲרִיתוֹ לְהַכְרִית; בְּדוֹר אַחֵר, יִמַּח שְׁמָם. 13 Let his posterity be cut off; in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
יד יִזָּכֵר, עֲו‍ֹן אֲבֹתָיו–אֶל-יְהוָה; וְחַטַּאת אִמּוֹ, אַל-תִּמָּח. 14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be brought to remembrance unto the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
טו יִהְיוּ נֶגֶד-יְהוָה תָּמִיד; וְיַכְרֵת מֵאֶרֶץ זִכְרָם. 15 Let them be before the LORD continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
טז יַעַן– אֲשֶׁר לֹא זָכַר, עֲשׂוֹת חָסֶד:
וַיִּרְדֹּף, אִישׁ-עָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן–וְנִכְאֵה לֵבָב; לְמוֹתֵת. 16 Because that he remembered not to do kindness, {N}
but persecuted the poor and needy man, and the broken in heart he was ready to slay.
יז וַיֶּאֱהַב קְלָלָה, וַתְּבוֹאֵהוּ; וְלֹא-חָפֵץ בִּבְרָכָה, וַתִּרְחַק מִמֶּנּוּ. 17 Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him; and he delighted not in blessing, and it is far from him.
יח וַיִּלְבַּשׁ קְלָלָה, כְּמַדּוֹ: וַתָּבֹא כַמַּיִם בְּקִרְבּוֹ; וְכַשֶּׁמֶן, בְּעַצְמוֹתָיו. 18 He clothed himself also with cursing as with his raiment, and it is come into his inward parts like water, and like oil into his bones.
יט תְּהִי-לוֹ, כְּבֶגֶד יַעְטֶה; וּלְמֵזַח, תָּמִיד יַחְגְּרֶהָ. 19 Let it be unto him as the garment which he putteth on, and for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually.’
כ זֹאת פְּעֻלַּת שֹׂטְנַי, מֵאֵת יְהוָה; וְהַדֹּבְרִים רָע, עַל-נַפְשִׁי. 20 This would mine adversaries effect from the LORD, and they that speak evil against my soul.
כא וְאַתָּה, יְהוִה אֲדֹנָי– עֲשֵׂה-אִתִּי, לְמַעַן שְׁמֶךָ;
כִּי-טוֹב חַסְדְּךָ, הַצִּילֵנִי. 21 But Thou, O GOD the Lord, deal with me for Thy name’s sake; {N}
because Thy mercy is good, deliver Thou me.
כב כִּי-עָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן אָנֹכִי; וְלִבִּי, חָלַל בְּקִרְבִּי. 22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
כג כְּצֵל-כִּנְטוֹתוֹ נֶהֱלָכְתִּי; נִנְעַרְתִּי, כָּאַרְבֶּה. 23 I am gone like the shadow when it lengtheneth; I am shaken off as the locust.
כד בִּרְכַּי, כָּשְׁלוּ מִצּוֹם; וּבְשָׂרִי, כָּחַשׁ מִשָּׁמֶן. 24 My knees totter through fasting; and my flesh is lean, and hath no fatness.
כה וַאֲנִי, הָיִיתִי חֶרְפָּה לָהֶם; יִרְאוּנִי, יְנִיעוּן רֹאשָׁם. 25 I am become also a taunt unto them; when they see me, they shake their head.
כו עָזְרֵנִי, יְהוָה אֱלֹהָי; הוֹשִׁיעֵנִי כְחַסְדֶּךָ. 26 Help me, O LORD my God; O save me according to Thy mercy;
כז וְיֵדְעוּ, כִּי-יָדְךָ זֹּאת; אַתָּה יְהוָה עֲשִׂיתָהּ. 27 That they may know that this is Thy hand; that Thou, LORD, hast done it.
כח יְקַלְלוּ-הֵמָּה, וְאַתָּה תְבָרֵךְ: קָמוּ, וַיֵּבֹשׁוּ–וְעַבְדְּךָ יִשְׂמָח. 28 Let them curse, but bless Thou; when they arise, they shall be put to shame, but Thy servant shall rejoice.
כט יִלְבְּשׁוּ שׂוֹטְנַי כְּלִמָּה; וְיַעֲטוּ כַמְעִיל בָּשְׁתָּם. 29 Mine adversaries shall be clothed with confusion, and shall put on their own shame as a robe.
ל אוֹדֶה יְהוָה מְאֹד בְּפִי; וּבְתוֹךְ רַבִּים אֲהַלְלֶנּוּ. 30 I will give great thanks unto the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise Him among the multitude;
לא כִּי-יַעֲמֹד, לִימִין אֶבְיוֹן– לְהוֹשִׁיעַ, מִשֹּׁפְטֵי נַפְשׁוֹ. 31 Because He standeth at the right hand of the needy, to save him from them that judge his soul. {P}

נְאֻם יְהוָה, לַאדֹנִי–שֵׁב לִימִינִי; עַד-אָשִׁית אֹיְבֶיךָ, הֲדֹם לְרַגְלֶיךָ. 1 A Psalm of David. {N}
The LORD saith unto my lord: ‘Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.’
ב מַטֵּה-עֻזְּךָ–יִשְׁלַח יְהוָה, מִצִּיּוֹן; רְדֵה, בְּקֶרֶב אֹיְבֶיךָ. 2 The rod of Thy strength the LORD will send out of Zion: ‘Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.’
ג עַמְּךָ נְדָבֹת, בְּיוֹם חֵילֶךָ:
בְּהַדְרֵי-קֹדֶשׁ, מֵרֶחֶם מִשְׁחָר; לְךָ, טַל יַלְדֻתֶיךָ. 3 Thy people offer themselves willingly in the day of thy warfare; {N}
in adornments of holiness, from the womb of the dawn, thine is the dew of thy youth.
ד נִשְׁבַּע יְהוָה, וְלֹא יִנָּחֵם– אַתָּה-כֹהֵן לְעוֹלָם;

after the manner of Melchizedek.’
ה אֲדֹנָי עַל-יְמִינְךָ; מָחַץ בְּיוֹם-אַפּוֹ מְלָכִים. 5 The Lord at thy right hand doth crush kings in the day of His wrath.
ו יָדִין בַּגּוֹיִם, מָלֵא גְוִיּוֹת; מָחַץ רֹאשׁ, עַל-אֶרֶץ רַבָּה. 6 He will judge among the nations; He filleth it with dead bodies, He crusheth the head over a wide land.
ז מִנַּחַל, בַּדֶּרֶךְ יִשְׁתֶּה; עַל-כֵּן, יָרִים רֹאשׁ. 7 He will drink of the brook in the way; therefore will he lift up the head. {P}

ב גְּדֹלִים, מַעֲשֵׂי יְהוָה; דְּרוּשִׁים, לְכָל-חֶפְצֵיהֶם. 2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have delight therein.
ג הוֹד-וְהָדָר פָּעֳלוֹ; וְצִדְקָתוֹ, עֹמֶדֶת לָעַד. 3 His work is glory and majesty; and His righteousness endureth for ever.

ז מַעֲשֵׂי יָדָיו, אֱמֶת וּמִשְׁפָּט; נֶאֱמָנִים, כָּל-פִּקּוּדָיו. 7 The works of His hands are truth and justice; all His precepts are sure.

Holy and awful is His name.

Hallelujah.
Chapter 114

א בְּצֵאת יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִמִּצְרָיִם; בֵּית יַעֲקֹב, מֵעַם לֹעֵז. 1 When Israel came forth out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;
ב הָיְתָה יְהוּדָה לְקָדְשׁוֹ; יִשְׂרָאֵל, מַמְשְׁלוֹתָיו. 2 Judah became His sanctuary, Israel His dominion.
ג הַיָּם רָאָה, וַיָּנֹס; הַיַּרְדֵּן, יִסֹּב לְאָחוֹר. 3 The sea saw it, and fled; the Jordan turned backward.
ד הֶהָרִים, רָקְדוּ כְאֵילִים; גְּבָעוֹת, כִּבְנֵי-צֹאן. 4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like young sheep.
ה מַה-לְּךָ הַיָּם, כִּי תָנוּס; הַיַּרְדֵּן, תִּסֹּב לְאָחוֹר. 5 What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleest? thou Jordan, that thou turnest backward?
ו הֶהָרִים, תִּרְקְדוּ כְאֵילִים; גְּבָעוֹת, כִּבְנֵי-צֹאן. 6 Ye mountains, that ye skip like rams; ye hills, like young sheep?
ז מִלִּפְנֵי אָדוֹן, חוּלִי אָרֶץ; מִלִּפְנֵי, אֱלוֹהַּ יַעֲקֹב. 7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob;
ח הַהֹפְכִי הַצּוּר אֲגַם-מָיִם; חַלָּמִישׁ, לְמַעְיְנוֹ-מָיִם. 8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.
Chapter 115

א לֹא לָנוּ יְהוָה, לֹא-לָנוּ: כִּי-לְשִׁמְךָ, תֵּן כָּבוֹד–עַל-חַסְדְּךָ, עַל-אֲמִתֶּךָ. 1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy, and for Thy truth’s sake.
ב לָמָּה, יֹאמְרוּ הַגּוֹיִם: אַיֵּה-נָא, אֱלֹהֵיהֶם. 2 Wherefore should the nations say: ‘Where is now their God?’
ג וֵאלֹהֵינוּ בַשָּׁמָיִם– כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-חָפֵץ עָשָׂה. 3 But our God is in the heavens; whatsoever pleased Him He hath done.
ד עֲצַבֵּיהֶם, כֶּסֶף וְזָהָב; מַעֲשֵׂה, יְדֵי אָדָם. 4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
ה פֶּה-לָהֶם, וְלֹא יְדַבֵּרוּ; עֵינַיִם לָהֶם, וְלֹא יִרְאוּ. 5 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;

ז יְדֵיהֶם, וְלֹא יְמִישׁוּן–רַגְלֵיהֶם, וְלֹא יְהַלֵּכוּ; לֹא-יֶהְגּוּ, בִּגְרוֹנָם. 7 They have hands, but they handle not; feet have they, but they walk not; neither speak they with their throat.
ח כְּמוֹהֶם, יִהְיוּ עֹשֵׂיהֶם– כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-בֹּטֵחַ בָּהֶם. 8 They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them.
ט יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּטַח בַּיהוָה; עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא. 9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD! He is their help and their shield!
י בֵּית אַהֲרֹן, בִּטְחוּ בַיהוָה; עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא. 10 O house of Aaron, trust ye in the LORD! He is their help and their shield!
יא יִרְאֵי יְהוָה, בִּטְחוּ בַיהוָה; עֶזְרָם וּמָגִנָּם הוּא. 11 Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield.
יב יְהוָה, זְכָרָנוּ יְבָרֵךְ:
יְבָרֵךְ, אֶת-בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל; יְבָרֵךְ, אֶת-בֵּית אַהֲרֹן. 12 The LORD hath been mindful of us, He will bless– {N}
He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.
יג יְבָרֵךְ, יִרְאֵי יְהוָה– הַקְּטַנִּים, עִם-הַגְּדֹלִים. 13 He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
יד יֹסֵף יְהוָה עֲלֵיכֶם; עֲלֵיכֶם, וְעַל בְּנֵיכֶם. 14 The LORD increase you more and more, you and your children.
טו בְּרוּכִים אַתֶּם, לַיהוָה– עֹשֵׂה, שָׁמַיִם וָאָרֶץ. 15 Blessed be ye of the LORD who made heaven and earth.
טז הַשָּׁמַיִם שָׁמַיִם, לַיהוָה; וְהָאָרֶץ, נָתַן לִבְנֵי-אָדָם. 16 The heavens are the heavens of the LORD; but the earth hath He given to the children of men.
יז לֹא הַמֵּתִים, יְהַלְלוּ-יָהּ; וְלֹא, כָּל-יֹרְדֵי דוּמָה. 17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence;
יח וַאֲנַחְנוּ, נְבָרֵךְ יָהּ– מֵעַתָּה וְעַד-עוֹלָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 18 But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for ever. {N}
Hallelujah.
Chapter 116

א אָהַבְתִּי, כִּי-יִשְׁמַע יְהוָה– אֶת-קוֹלִי, תַּחֲנוּנָי. 1 I love that the LORD should hear my voice and my supplications.
ב כִּי-הִטָּה אָזְנוֹ לִי; וּבְיָמַי אֶקְרָא. 2 Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him all my days.
ג אֲפָפוּנִי, חֶבְלֵי-מָוֶת–וּמְצָרֵי שְׁאוֹל מְצָאוּנִי; צָרָה וְיָגוֹן אֶמְצָא. 3 The cords of death compassed me, and the straits of the nether-world got hold upon me; I found trouble and sorrow.
ד וּבְשֵׁם-יְהוָה אֶקְרָא: אָנָּה יְהוָה, מַלְּטָה נַפְשִׁי. 4 But I called upon the name of the LORD: ‘I beseech thee, O LORD, deliver my soul.’
ה חַנּוּן יְהוָה וְצַדִּיק; וֵאלֹהֵינוּ מְרַחֵם. 5 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is compassionate.
ו שֹׁמֵר פְּתָאיִם יְהוָה; דַּלֹּתִי, וְלִי יְהוֹשִׁיעַ. 6 The LORD preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and He saved me.
ז שׁוּבִי נַפְשִׁי, לִמְנוּחָיְכִי: כִּי-יְהוָה, גָּמַל עָלָיְכִי. 7 Return, O my soul, unto thy rest; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
ח כִּי חִלַּצְתָּ נַפְשִׁי, מִמָּוֶת: אֶת-עֵינִי מִן-דִּמְעָה; אֶת-רַגְלִי מִדֶּחִי. 8 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.
ט אֶתְהַלֵּךְ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה– בְּאַרְצוֹת, הַחַיִּים. 9 I shall walk before the LORD in the lands of the living.
י הֶאֱמַנְתִּי, כִּי אֲדַבֵּר; אֲנִי, עָנִיתִי מְאֹד. 10 I trusted even when I spoke: ‘I am greatly afflicted.’
יא אֲנִי, אָמַרְתִּי בְחָפְזִי: כָּל-הָאָדָם כֹּזֵב. 11 I said in my haste: ‘All men are liars.’
יב מָה-אָשִׁיב לַיהוָה– כָּל-תַּגְמוּלוֹהִי עָלָי. 12 How can I repay unto the LORD all His bountiful dealings toward me?
יג כּוֹס-יְשׁוּעוֹת אֶשָּׂא; וּבְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֶקְרָא. 13 I will lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
יד נְדָרַי, לַיהוָה אֲשַׁלֵּם; נֶגְדָה-נָּא, לְכָל-עַמּוֹ. 14 My vows will I pay unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all His people.
טו יָקָר, בְּעֵינֵי יְהוָה– הַמָּוְתָה, לַחֲסִידָיו. 15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.
טז אָנָּה יְהוָה, כִּי-אֲנִי עַבְדֶּךָ:
אֲנִי-עַבְדְּךָ, בֶּן-אֲמָתֶךָ; פִּתַּחְתָּ, לְמוֹסֵרָי. 16 I beseech Thee, O LORD, for I am Thy servant; {N}
I am Thy servant, the son of Thy handmaid; Thou hast loosed my bands.
יז לְךָ-אֶזְבַּח, זֶבַח תּוֹדָה; וּבְשֵׁם יְהוָה אֶקְרָא. 17 I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
יח נְדָרַי, לַיהוָה אֲשַׁלֵּם; נֶגְדָה-נָּא, לְכָל-עַמּוֹ. 18 I will pay my vows unto the LORD, yea, in the presence of all His people;
יט בְּחַצְרוֹת, בֵּית יְהוָה– בְּתוֹכֵכִי יְרוּשָׁלִָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 19 In the courts of the LORD’S house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. {N}
Hallelujah.
Chapter 117

א הַלְלוּ אֶת-יְהוָה, כָּל-גּוֹיִם; שַׁבְּחוּהוּ, כָּל-הָאֻמִּים. 1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations; laud Him, all ye peoples.
ב כִּי גָבַר עָלֵינוּ, חַסְדּוֹ– וֶאֱמֶת-יְהוָה לְעוֹלָם:
הַלְלוּ-יָהּ. 2 For His mercy is great toward us; and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. {N}
Hallelujah.
