The song of the stairs.
     Many a time have they fought against me from my youth up,( may Israel now say.)

     The plowers plowed upon my back, and made long furrows.
     But the righteous Lord has hewn the yoke of the ungodly in pieces.
     Let them be confounded and turned backward, as many as have evil will at *Sion. Sion in the scripture signifies the whole congregation of God, and every faithful sort, that has his whole intent, affection and desire toward God. MN
     Let them be even as the hay upon the house tops, which withers before it be plucked up.
     Whereof the mower fills not his hand, neither he that binds up the sheaves, his bosom.

     But there is mercy with you, that you may be feared.

The One Hundred and Thirty First Psalme
The song of the stairs.
     Lord, I a not high minded, I have no proud looks.

     Let Israel trust in the Lord, from this time forth for evermore.

The One Hundred and Thirty Second Psalme
The song of the stairs.
     Lord, remember David and all his trouble.
     How he swore unto the Lord, and vowed a vow unto the allmighty one of Jacob:
     I will not come within the tabernacle of my house, nor climb up in my bed.
     I will not allow mine eyes to sleep, nor mine eyelids to slumber.
     Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty one of Jacob.
     Lo, we heard of the same at *Ephrata, and found it in the wood. *Ephrath or Ephratah = "ashheap: place of fruitfulness"
     We will go into his tabernacle, and fall down before his footstool.
     Arise, O' Lord, into your *resting place, you and the ark of your strength. His resting place was the mercy seat, as before in the Psalme 49. MN
     Let your Priests be clothed with righteousness, and let your saints rejoice.
     For your servant Davids sake *turn not away the presence of your anointed.
*Turn not away the presence, that is, forsake not or disdain not the presence of thine anointed. MN
     The Lord has made an faithful oath unto David, and he will not shrink from it: Of the fruit of the body shall I set upon your seat.
     If your children will keep my covenant, and my testimony that I shall learn them: their children also shall sit upon your seat for evermore.
     For the Lord has chosen Sion, to be an habitation for himself has he chosen her.
     This shall be my rest, here will I dwell, for I have a delight therin.
     I will bless her vitals with increase, and will satisfy her poor with bread.
     I will deck her Priests with health, and her saints shall rejoice and be glad.
     There shall I make the horn of David to flourish, I have ordained a lantern for mine anointed.
     As for his enemies, I shall clothe them with shame, but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

The One Hundred and Thirty Third Psalme
The song of the stairs of David.
     Behold, how good and joyful a thing it is, brethren to dwell together in unity.
     It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down unto the beard: and went down to the skirts of his clothing.

     For the Lord will avenge his people, and be gracious unto his servants.
     As for the images of the Heathen, they are but silver and gold, the work of mens hands.
     They have mouths, and speak not: eyes have they, but see not.
     They have ears, and yet they hear not, neither is there any breath in their mouths.
     They that make them, are like unto them, and so are all they that put their trust in them.
     Praise the Lord, you house of Israel, praise the Lord you house of Aaron.
     Praise the Lord, you house of Levi, you that fear the Lord, praise the Lord.
     Praise be the Lord out of Sion, which dwells at Jerusalem.
Praise the everlasting.
