tions of the hills also shook, and were removed, because he was wroth. 8 There went a smoke out in his presence : and a consuming fire out of his mouth, fo that coals were kindlod at it.

9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and it was dark under his feet.

10 He rode upon the Cherubins and did fie: he came flying upon the wings of the wind.

1 He made darkness his secret place : his pavilion round about him with dark water, and thick clouds to cover him.

12 At the brightness of his presence his clouds removed : hail-stones, and coals of fire.

13 The Lord also thundred out of heaven, and the Highest gave his thunder : hail-stones, and coals of fire.

14 He sent out his arrows and scattered them: he cast forth lightnings, and destroyed them.

15 The springs of waters were seen, and the foundations of the round world were discovered at thy chiding, O Lord : at the blasting of the breath of thy displeasure.

26 With the clean thou Ihalt be clean : and with the froward thou shalt learn frowardness.

27 For thou shalt save the people that are in adversity: and shalt bring down the high looks of the proud. 28 Thou also thalt light my candle: the Lord my God thall make iny darkness to be light.

29 For in thee I shall discomfit an host of men : and with the help of my God'I shall leap over the wall.

30 The way of God is an undefiled way: the word of the Lord also is tried in the fire; he is the defender of all then that put their trust in him. 31 For who is God, but the Lord : or who hath any strength, except our God? 32. It is God that girdeth me with strength of war : and maketh my way perfect.

33 He maketh my feet like harts feet: and fetteth me up on high. 34 He teacheth mine hands to fight: and mine arms Thall break even a bow of steel.

35 Thou hast given me the defence of thy salvation : thy right hand also shall hold me up, and thy loving correction shall make me great.

36 Thou shalt make room enough under me for to go : that my foot-steps shall not Dide. 37 ! will follow ypon mine enemies, and overtake I
