(Oversetting by William Joye, fixed by MDS) 1 Blessed is that man which walketh not in the rede of the ungodly, and standeth not in the way of sinners, and sitteth not in the seat of the irksome scorners.
2 But hath all his lust in the law of the LORD, and upon it his mind is busy, both day and night.
3 Such a man is like a tree worted by the streamside which gives forth its ovet in due time and her leaves do not wither, for whatsoever he does shall fare well.
4 But so shall not the ungodly, for they are like dust which is strewn out with the wind.
5 Wherefore these ungodly do not stand in the deeming, neither these sinners may abide in the fellowship of the righteous;
6 for the LORD atesteth the way of the righteous, but the way of sinners shall perish.

1 Why are the theeds grim and the folk smay idleness.
2 Earth's kings stand up and the eldermen come together against the LORD and against His Christ.
3 Let's slit their bonds and worp their yokes from us.
4 He that dwells in heaven laughs at them and the LORD mocks them.
5 Then speaks He to them in His ire and in His hothearness He dreves them.
6 Soothly, I have been as king by Him over Zion, His holy dune, and preaching the LORD's bidding.
7 The Lord quoth to me, "My son art thou, today I have begotten thee.
8 Ask of me and I will give the theeds thine ervewardness, for thine ownedness, earth's meres.
9 Thou shalt steer them with a belt of iron and like a potter's vat, thou shalt break them."
10 And now, O kings, grasp the thought, be learned all you who are deemers on earth.
11 Thane the LORD in awe and bless Him with fear.
12 Grip learnship (or steerness), lest when the LORD ires and furthermore you are fordone from the right way,
13 for His ire burns shortly. Blessed are all they that trust on Him.

1 O God, so many hindernesses attack me today!
And even as they shove against me,
there are folks around me
who laugh at my childlike onhanginess on You.
2 They say that my lief is for naught,
that God is not gripped to my petty bugbears.
3 But You, O God, have beset me with Your love.
You bewrap me with care
and undergird me with giveness.
4 When I call out for You,
Your are close enough to hear and answer.
5 Whether I wake or slumber,
You are near me and watch over me.
6 I do not have to be afraid
of these kinches that assail me. 7 You will, in Your own good time, set me free
from every werish guilt and brittleness.
8 Health belongs to God; and Your blessing is upon Your folkdom.
1 Answer me when I clepe,
O God my rightwiser!
In my narrowness, You free me.
Milts me and hear my bead.
2 How long, O deathlings?
How long will you wend my worth to shame?
How long will you love idleness and seek falsehood?
3 Wit that YHWH has bemickled His holy one;
YHWH will hear me when I clepe to Him.
4 Though you be wroth, sin not.
Bethink yourselves at night
and be still.
5 Bring right agivings
and hope on YHWH.
6 Many say, "Who will show us good?"
Lord, the light of Your cheer is upon us.
7 You have put more bliss in my heart
than when their wheat and wine were mickel.
8 In frith I lay me down to sleep,
For You alone, O YHWH, set me on bliss and hope.
1 Give ear to my words, O YHWH;
bethink my sighs.
2 Hear the sound of my cry,
my King and my God,
for to You I bead.
3 On morning, You hear my bead,
on morning I lay my needs before You
4 For You are not a God who likes sin.
5 With You can ill not abide.
Boasters cannot stand Your glare.
6 You hate all evildoers
and fordo all liers.
You hate killers and misleaders.
7 But I, by Your great mildheartness, I go in to Your house;
I bow to Your holy glowstead in awe of You.
8 YHWH, lead me on Your rightwisness from my foes,
make Your way smooth before me.
9 There is no truth in their mouth,
but idleness is in their hearts.
Their throat is a bottomless pit,
their tung is guileful.
10 Doom them, O God!
Let their inwit be their downfall.
Aqueath them for their great wickedness,
they have risen against You.
11 But all who hope in You be merry and sing with glee.
Shelter all who love Your Name,
so they can be glad in You.
12 For You are YHWH who blesses and rightens
and have shielded us with Your wellwillness.

1 YHWH, do not aqueath me in Your ire, Nor in Your hotheartness swenk me. 2 Milts me, YHWH, For I am unwhole; YHWH, heal me, For all my bones are bedreved. 3 My soul is swithe bedreved; but You, YHWH, how long? 4 Come back out of godkindness, O YHWH, and allay my soul, heal me for Your mildheartness. 5 None dead are mindful of You, Who herries You in the underworld? 6 I am weary with my wailing. Each night I wash my pillow and soak my bed with tears. 7 My sheenhood is gone with dreaf, and I am foreldered betwixt all my foes. 8 Get away from me, all you evildoers, for YHWH has heard my weepin’ steven. 9 YHWH has heard my halsing, YHWH onfanged my bidding. 10 May all my foes be forshamed and bedreft, Rathely they shall withfare in shame.
Gr8asb8 17:41, December 1, 2010 (UTC)
1 YHWH, my God, You are my haven. Allay me from all that attack me and free me, 2 or like a leow they will rip my soul to shreds, with no one to help me. 3 YHWH, my God, if I have done this, if my hands are full of wickedness, 4 If to a good friend I have done evil, or a nameless foe plundered, 5 then let the foe hound me, o’ertake me, and kill me, let them tread my life down to the ground and my worth to the grave. 6 Arise, O YHWH, in Your ire; rear Yourself against the wrath of my fiends; awake the doom You have behested. 7 Make the world a lawroom, and take Your seat as Deemer. 8 Deem folk, deem me. YHWH, deem me after my rightwisness, deem me after my guiltlessness. 9 Oh, end the evil of the rightwise and guide the rightwise, O right God, Who searches the mind and underseeks the heart. 10 My shield is with God, Who heals the upright in heart. 11 God is a fair deemer, strong and bethildy, angry each day. 12 If one does not chare, God will sharpen His sword; He has bent and strung His bow. 13 He has arreadied for Him the weapons of death, and tipped His arrows with fire. 14 Whoever is laden with evil, seeds sorrow and gives birth to ungodliness. 15 They dig a pit, delve it, and then fall into it. 16 Their nithecraft lands back on them, on their skull their outrage downfares. 17 As for me, I will give thanks to YHWH after His rightwisness; and I will praise the Name of YHWH, most high. Gr8asb8 04:30, December 4, 2010 (UTC)
1 O YHWH, our Lord, how wonderful is Your Name in all the earth! Your greatness is sung above the sky. 2 Out of the mouth of bairns and sucklings You have built a stronghold against Your foes, to still the fiend and the bewreaker. 3 When I look at Your sky, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have founded. 4 What is man, that You are mindful of him? What is wer, that You care for it? 5 You have made it a little lower than Yourself. You have crowned it with wulder and worthship. 6 You have given it lordship over Your handiwork, You have put all things under its feet, 7 all sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field, 8 and the birds of the loft, and the fish of the sea- whatever fares through the sea! 9 O YHWH, our Lord, how wonderful is Your Name in all the earth! Gr8asb8 05:00, December 4, 2010 (UTC)
1 I will give thanks to You, O YHWH, with my whole heart; I will speak of all Your wonderful works. 2 I will bliss and fain and herry Your Name, O Most High. 3 When my foes withdraw, they will stumble and die before You. 4 You have upheld my right and my speak, You have sat on the throne, deeming rightly. 5 You have aqueathed the heathen, and fordone the unright, You have blotted their name out forever and ever. 6 Ha, you fiend! You thought to bring us to a simble naught, to towarp our chesters, so that no thought of them could abide. 7 Yet, YHWH is enthroned forever. He has set up his throne for deeming. 8 He deems the world fairly; He deems the folk with righwisness. 9 YHWH is an haven for the downtrodden, a frithstow in times of costing. 10 And those who know Your Name hope in You, for You, YHWH, have never failed them that seek You. 11 Herry YHWH, Who dwells in Zion; show the folk of His doings. 12 For He Who bewreaks blood is mindful of them; He does not forget the clepe of the needy. 13 Milts me, YHWH! See how I am downtrodden by those who hate me, and snatch me away from the gates of death, 14 so I can broadcast all your praise. In the gates of the daughter of Zion, I will bliss on Your health. 15 The nations have sunk into the pit they have made. Their feet are caught in the net they have hidden to trap others. 16 YHWH has werthed Himself; He has doomed; the wicked are snared in their own handiwork. 17 The wicked shall go back to the underworld, and all folks who forget God. 18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the meek fordone forever. 19 Arise, YHWH, so the evilwillers may not do as they will, let the Heathen be doomed in Your sight. 20 Strike fear in them, YHWH, so the Heathen wit that they are but deathlings.
2 The LORD is my rock, my stronghold, my freer. God is my strength, and in Him will I trust: my shield and the horn of my welfare: mine high hold and haven.
3 I will call upon the LORD, Who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be sheltered from any foe.
4 For the waves of death have beset me, the floods of the grave have feared me.
5 The ropes of death came around me, the snares of death overtook me.
6 In my unfrith I called to the LORD, and cried to my God. And He heard my call out of His church, and my cry came to His ears.
7And the earth shuddered and quoke, and the groundwork of the hills shifted and shook, since He was angry.
8 Smoke went up out of his nostrils, and an intaking fire came out of his mouth, so that coals flamed forth from Him.
9 And He bowed heaven and came down, and darkness underneath His feet.
10 And He rode upon Cherub and flew, and was ferried upon the wings of the wind.
11 And He made darkness a tilding around Him, with water gathered together in thick clouds.
12 From the brightness that was before Him, coals were set on fire.
13 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the Most High out His call.
14 And He shot arrows and scattered them, and hurled lightning and astonished them.
15 And the headsprings of the waters were seen, and the groundworks of the round world were aborn at Thy snaping, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of Thy nostrils.
16 He sent from on high and fetched me, He plucked me out of mighty waters.
17 He nerried me from my mighty foe and from them that hate me; for they are too strong for me.
18 They stopped me in the day of my ailing, but the LORD was my stay.
19 And he brought me out into roomth ("enough space"), and freed me, since He glad in me.
20 The LORD aftergave me following my righteousness, after the cleanness of my hands he dealt with me.
21 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have done no wicked shrinking from my God.
22 I had all His laws in my sight, and I casted not His behests from me,
23 but was blameless toward Him and kept myself from wickedness.
24 And the LORD did to me again following my righteousness, and after the cleanness of my hands before His eyes.
25 With the holy thou shalt be holy, and with the sound thou shalt deal soundly.
26 With the clean thou shalt be clean, and with the froward thou shalt be froward.
27 And the folks that are brought low, thou shalt help. And on the proud thou shalt cast Thine eyes.
28 Thou art my light, O LORD, and Thou shalt light my darkness.
29 With Thy help I will run thru an army of men, and in my God will I spring over a wall.
30 The way of God is blameless, and the word of the LORD is tried as gold, and He a shield to all that trust in Him.
31 For who is a God but the LORD, and who might but our God?
32 God is my strength in war and riddeth the way clear before me.
33 He maketh my feet like an hart's, and setteth me fast on high.
34 He teacheth mine hands to fight, that mine arms shall break a bow of steel.
35 Thou hast spared me with thy shield, and keptest me ever in keekness.
36 Thou madest me roomth to walk in, that my feet should not stumble.
37 I will follow my foes and overtook them, nor will I wend again until I have smote them.
38 I will waste them that they will not stand, but fall under my feet.
39 Thou hast girded me with strength to battle, and hast thrown my foes under me.
40 Thou madest my foes to wend their backs to me, them that hated me: I forlored them.
41 They looked for help, but none came to take them; unto the LORD they cried, but He heard them not.
42 I will grind them as small as the dust of the earth; I will tread them as the dirt of the streat, spreading them abroad.
43 And Thou did nery me from the groanings of my kinfolk, and had me as head over the Heathen, for the folk which I knew not became my thaners.
44 And the outlanders crouched unto me, listening to my every word.
45 The outlanders that shrink away shall shake for fear of their shielded steads.
46 The Lord liveth, and blessed be my Strength; lifted up be the God of my welfare.
47 It is God that awrecketh (avengeth) me, and bringeth the folk under me.
48 He freeth me from my foes and liftest me high over them that rise against me, and ridest me from the wicked men.
49 Therefore, will I praise Thee, O LORD, among the Heathen, and will sing unto Thy Name,
50 for Thy great and manifold shielding of Thy king, and showing kindness unto Thy chosen, even David, and his seed forever.

(Brought from the Hebrew tung over to Anglish by MDS) 1 A song of David.
YHWH is my shepherd. I cannot fail.
2 In green abodes He lays me down; upon springs of stillness He leads me.
3 My soul does He fill, and guide me in my paths of rightwisness for the sake of His Name.
4 Yea, were I even to walk in deathly hallows, I would not fear evil since You are with me; Your rod and Your staff soothe me.
5 You set up before me a meal board against my downtrodders. You heap rich oil on my head and fill my cup to the brim.
6 Oh, that goodness and kindness would run after me every day of my life, that I could abide in the house of YHWH forever! So be it.
(oversetting by Miles Coverdale, fixed by MDS) 1 Like the hart lusts for water, so my soul longs for You, O God.
2 My soul thirsts for God; yea, even for the living God; when shall I come to show up before the theresomeness of God?
3 My tears have been my food day and night, while they daily say to me, "Where is your god now?"
4 When I think thereon, I yote out my heart by myself; for I went with the crowd and brought them forth in the house of God, in the sound of praise and thanksgiving, among us as keep the Day of Rest.
5 Why are you so down-cast, O my soul, and why are you so stirred within me? Put your trust in God; for I will give thanks for the help of His foreside.
6 My God, my soul is dretched within me; therefore I bethink the land of Yordan and the little hill of Hermon.
7 Deep calls to deap with the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and floods have gone over me.
8 YHWH has granted His godkindness in the daytime; and in the nighttime did I sing of Him, and made my bidding unto the God of my life.
9 I will say to God my strength, "Why have You forgotten me? Why do I drag so, while the fiend trods down on me?"
10 My bones are smitten asunder like with a sword, while my foes that dretch me mock me, saying unto me day after day, "So now where is your god?"
11 Why so down-cast, O my soul; why are you so stirred within me? Oh, Put your trust in God; for I will still thank Him, Who is the help of my foreside, and my God.

(overset into Dutch by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther, overset into Anglish by MDS)
A steadfast Stronghold is our God,
A trusty Weir and Weapon!
He breaks the mean downtrodder's rod
Which has us now o'ertaken.
The old evil fiend
Our earnest doom now means;
Great cunning and might
Are his dread spears in fight:
On earth there is naught like him.
With our own might is nothing won,
Soon are we lost and fallen;
But for us fights the rightwise One,
Whom God Himself has callen.
Who is this Chosen One?
It's Jesus Christ, God's Son,
The Lord of 'Sabbaoth:'
Our God and Healer both.
He holds the field forever.
And were the world with devils filled
With open mouths to gobble us
We freak out not, we fear no ill,
He will not let them boggle us.
This world's atheling still
Can scowl as he will,
He can harm us none:
He's doomed, the fight is won;
One word will make him tumble.
Against all foes, the Word shall stand
And none can thank Him ever;
God's gifts and Ferrow, close at hand,
Shall be with us forever.
And though they do what they will-
Hate, steal, hurt, or kill
Though all may be gone,
God has our sigor won,
The Rike is ours forever.
