But how can that be possible, we hear you ask. Well with a bit of judicious (and, some may say, rather clever) pruning, here's how:

1. As God the Lord of Israel liveth; Help, Lord! Wilt Thou quite destroy us
2. Lord, bow thine ear to our prayer
5. Yet doth the Lord see it not
7. For He shall give His angels charge over thee
9. Bless'd are they who fear the Lord
10. As God the Lord of Sabaoth liveth
11. Baal, we cry to thee
12. Call him louder, for he is a God!
13. Call him louder! He heareth not
14. Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel!
15. Cast thy burden upon the Lord
16. O Thou, who makest Thine angels spirits
17. Is not his word like a fire!
19. (from 93)  O Lord, thou hast overthrown thine enemies
20. Thanks be to God!
22. Be not afraid, saith God the Lord
24. Woe to him! He shall perish!
26. It is enough! O Lord, now take my life
28. Lift thine eyes to the mountains
29. He, watching over Israel, slumbers not
34. Behold, God the Lord passed by!
35. Above Him stood the Seraphim; Holy is God the Lord
36. Go return upon thy way
37. For the mountains shall depart
38. Then did Elijah the prophet break forth
42. And then shall your light break forth
