17 Look upon my adversity and misery, and forgive me all my sin.

PSALM 26. Judica me, Domine.
BE thou my judge, O LORD, for I have walked innocently: my trust hath been also in the LORD, therefore shall I not fall.
2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try out my reins and my heart.
3 For thy loving kindness is ever before mine eyes; and I will walk in thy truth.

12 When my father and my mother forsake me, the LORD taketh me up.
13 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in the right way, because of mine enemies.
14 Deliver me not over into the will of mine adversaries: for there are false witnesses risen up against me, and such as speak wrong.

I WILL magnify thee, O LORD; for thou hast set me up, and not made my foes to triumph over me.
2 O LORD, my GoD, I cried unto thee; and thou hast healed
3 Thou, LORD, hast brought my soul out of hell: thou hast kept my life from them that go down to the pit.
4 Sing praises unto the LORD, O ye saints of his; and give thanks unto him, for a remembrance of his holiness.
5 For his wrath endureth but the twinkling of an eye, and in his pleasure is life; heaviness may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be removed; thou, LORD, of thy goodness, hast made my hill so strong.
7 Thou didst turn thy face from me, and I was troubled.
8 Then cried I unto thee, O LORD; and gat me to my LORD right humbly.
9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
10 Shall the dust give thanks unto thee? or shall it declare thy truth?
without ceasing: O my GoD, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
PSALM 31. In te, Domine, speravi.
IN thee, O LORD, have I put my trust; let me never be put to confusion; deliver me in thy righteousness.
2 Bow down thine ear to me; make haste to deliver me.
3 And be thou my strong rock, and house of defence, that thou mayest save me;
4 For thou art my strong rock, and my castle: be thou also my guide, and lead me for thy name's sake.
5 Draw me out of the net that they have laid privily for me; for thou art my strength.
6 Into thy hands I commend my spirit; for thou hast redeemed me, O LORD, thou GOD of truth.
7 I have hated them that hold of superstitious vanities, and my trust hath been in the LORD.
8 I will be glad, and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble, and hast known my soul in adversities.
9 Thou hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy, but hast set my feet in a large room.
10 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble, and 11 Hear, O LORD, and have mine eye is consumed for very mercy upon me; LORD, be thou heaviness; yea, my soul and
