o Lord My God, in Thee have I i put my hope; *

Then, only the 1st Cantor's side Q[_ the Quire completes the verse: ;1

. save me from them that persecute me, and do·

Thou t de-liv-er me.

And then, only the 2nd Cantor's=side Q[_ the Quire chants the entire next verse (omitting the intonation notes), the two sides alternating the verses thereafter:

Lest at any time like a Ii-on he i seize my soul, * when there is none to re-deem J. me, nor to save.

o Lord My God, if i have l' done this, * if there be in-jus-tice J. in my hands, If I have paid back evil to them that rendered e-vil i un-to me, * then let me fall back empty from J. mine en-em-Ies.

Then let the enemy pursue my soul, t and take it; and let him tread down my life in- i to the earth * and my glory let him bring down J. in-to the dust.

Arise, 0 'Lotti, in Thine l' ang-er;* exalt Thyself to the furthest boundaries Of

J. Thine en-em-Ies. ".

And arouse Thyself, 0 Lord My God, in the commandment which Thou i hast

en-joined, * and a congregation of peoples shall J. sur-round Thee. A

And for their sakes re-turn Thou i on High; * the Lord shall jidge J. the pea-pies. Judge me, 0 Lord, according to my T righ-teous-ness, * and according to mine in-no-cence J. with-in me.

Let the wickedness of sinners be ended, and do Thou guide the i righ-teous man, * 0 God, That searchest out J. the hearts and relns ..

Righteous is my i help from GOO, * Who saveth them whO are J up-right of heart. God is a Judge That is Righteous, Strong and For- l' bear-ing * and inflicteth

not J. wrath ev-'ry day. ~

Unless ye be converted, His glittering sword shall He i fur-bish; * He hath bent His bow, and hath made J. it rea-dj',

And on it He hath made ready the in-stru- i ments of death; * His arrows for them that rage hotly hath He J. per-fee-ted.

Behold, he was in travail with un- T righ-teous-ness; * he hath conceived toil and brought forth t in-i-quit-y.

He opened a pit and i dUg it;:I< and he shall fall into the hOle J. which he hath made. His toil shall return up-on his T own head, * and upon his own pate shall his

un-rjgh- J. teo us-ness come down. ,

I will give praise unto the Lord according to His T righ-teous-ness; :I< and I will chant unto the Name of J. the Lord Most High.

Glory be to the Fath-er, and l' to the + Son, * and to ,1. the Ho-ly Ghost.
