3 Who is the man that shall ascend
Into the hill of God ?
Shall have a firm abode ? 4 Whose hands are clean, whose heart is pure,
And unto vanity
Nor sworn deceitfully.
The blessing him upon,
Of his salvation.
That after him enquire,
With their whole heart's desire.
ay, Be lifted up, that so the King
Of glory enter may;
The mighty Lord is this;
And strong in battle is.
Doors that do last for aye,
Of glory enter may.
Of glory? who is this ?
The King of glory is.
PSALM XXV. To ascertain the meaning of this Psalm, as attempted in the paraphrase, * and applied as spoken in the person of Christ, (for the whole thereof is spoken in one person), the candid inquirer will carefully consider not only the Psalm itself, but also the parallels, and, of these, particularly Psalms Ixxxvi. and cxliii.
The Man who never lifted up
His soul to any vanity ;
Who never stoop'd to raise a lie ;
Though sin indeed he never knew ;
In mediation here we view!
O thee I lift my soul:
Nor foes triumph o'er me.
Be put to shame at all;
Let shame upon them fall.
Thy paths, o teach thou me:
To me salvation send,
Expecting do attend.
thee to remember,
my teacher be:
And loving-kindnesses; for they
Have been of old for ever. 7 My sins and faults of youth
Do thou, O Lord, forget :
And for thy goodness great. 8 God good and upright is :
The way he'll sinners shew. 9 The meek in judgment he will guide,
And make his path to know. 10 The whole paths of the Lord
- Are truth and mercy sure,
And testimonies pure.
O Lord, I thee entreat
For it is very great.
The Lord, and doth him serve ?
Shall choose, and still observe. 13 His soul shall dwell at ease ;
And his posterity
Inheritors shall be.
The secret of the Lord ;
He will to them afford. 15 Mine eyes upon the Lord
Continually are set;
My feet out of the net. 16 Turn unto me thy face,
And to me mercy
Because that I am desolate,
And am brought very low. 17 My heart's griefs are increasd :
Me from distress relieve. 18 See mine affliction and my pain,
And all my sins forgive. 19 Consider thou my foes,
Because they many are ;
Which they against me bear. 20 O do thou keep my soul,
Do thou deliver me:
Because I trust in thee. 21 Let uprightness and truth
Aeep me, wno tnee attend. 22 Redemption, Lord, to Israel
From all his troubles send.
Another of the same. 2T , O :
O thee I lift my soul, O Lord :
My God, I trust in thee : Let me not be asham'd; let not
My foes triumph o'er me. 3 Yea, let thou none ashamed be
That do on thee attend : Ashamed let them be, O Lord,
Who without cause offend. 4 Thy ways, Lord, shew; teach me thy paths: 5 Lead me in truth, teach me: For of my safety thou art God;
All day I wait on thee. 6 Thy mercies, that most tender are,
Do thou, O Lord, remember, And loving-kindnesses ; for they
Have been of old for ever,
7 Let not the errors of my youth,
Nor sins remember'd be;
O Lord, remember me.
He upright is also:
In ways that they should go.
In judgment just alway:
Are truth and mercy sure,
And testimonies pure. 11 Now for thine own name's sake, O Lord,
I humbly thee entreat
For it is very great. 12 What man fears God? him shall he teach
The way that he shall chuse. 13 His soul shall dwell at ease ; his seed
The earth, as heirs shall use. 14 The secret of the Lord is with
Such as do fear his name;
Will manifest to them.
Continually are set ;
My feet out of the net.
Have mercy me upon ;
And in affliction.
