My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.
But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.
When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.
Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine enemies.
Let them be ashamed and confounded that seek after my soul: let them be turned backward, and put to confusion, that desire my hurt.
For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.
He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
O deliver not the soul of thy turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever.
In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord: my sore ran in the night, and ceased not: my soul refused to be comforted.
He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.
Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee.
Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
For great is thy mercy toward me: and thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
O God, the proud are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul; and have not set thee before them.
For my soul is full of troubles: and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
LORD, why castest thou off my soul? why hidest thou thy face from me?
What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.
And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.
For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.
Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.
My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget thy law.
Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.
My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly.
Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.
Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.
In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.
I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Quicken me, O LORD, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.
And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant.
Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked.
The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.
The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.
He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.
A fool's mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.
Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die.
Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.
The soul of the wicked desireth evil: his neighbour findeth no favour in his eyes.
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
For the LORD will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.
Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.
Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?
So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters.
As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.

The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.
Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail.
A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.
Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
Tell me, O thou whom my soul loveth, where thou feedest, where thou makest thy flock to rest at noon: for why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?
By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
I will rise now, and go about the city in the streets, and in the broad ways I will seek him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
The watchmen that go about the city found me: to whom I said, Saw ye him whom my soul loveth?
It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me.
I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.
Or ever I was aware, my soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib.
Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.
With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.
For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.
Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?
But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.
Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:
And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul.
My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.
For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.
Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.

Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, and shall flow together to the goodness of the LORD, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd: and their soul shall be as a watered garden; and they shall not sorrow any more at all.
And I will satiate the soul of the priests with fatness, and my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the LORD.
For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.
So Zedekiah the king sware secretly unto Jeremiah, saying, As the LORD liveth, that made us this soul, I will not put thee to death, neither will I give thee into the hand of these men that seek thy life.
Then said Jeremiah unto Zedekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; If thou wilt assuredly go forth unto the king of Babylon's princes, then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire; and thou shalt live, and thine house:
But Jeremiah said, They shall not deliver thee. Obey, I beseech thee, the voice of the LORD, which I speak unto thee: so it shall be well unto thee, and thy soul shall live.

All her people sigh, they seek bread; they have given their pleasant things for meat to relieve the soul: see, O LORD, and consider; for I am become vile.
For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.

Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.
Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
