PSALM XXXviii. Domine, ne in furore.
Tonus Peregrinus. p.

16.

Put me not to rebuke, o { Lord, in thine an-ger : neither chasten me in thy { heavy displea-sure.

2 For thine { arrows stick fast in me: and thy hand presseth me sore.

3 There is no health in my flesh,* be- {cause of thy dis-plea-sure: neither is there any rest in my bones,* by { rea-son of my sin.

4 For my wickednesses are gone o-ver my head : and are like a sore burden,* too { hea-vy for me to bear.

5 My wounds { stink, and are, cor-rupt : through {my fool-ish-ness.

6 I am brought into so { great trouble and misery: that I go mourning { all the day long.

7 For my loins are filled { with a sore dis-ease : and there is no whole { part in my bo-dy. 8 I am feeble

, and sore smit-ten: I have roared for the very dis- į quiet-ness of my heart. 9 Lord, thou { know-est all my

de-sire: and my groaning { is not hid from thee.

Tonus Peregrinus. p. 16.

10 My heart } panteth,* my strength hath failed me: and the sight of mine { eyes is gone from me.

11 My lovers and my neighbours did stand-{ look-ing up-on my trou-ble: and my kinsmen { stood a-far off

12 They also that sought after my { life laid snares for me: and they that went about to do me evil, talked of wickedness,* and imagined de- { ceit all the day long.

13 As for me,* I was like a { deaf man, and heard not : and as one that is dumb,* who { doth not open his mouth.

14 I became even { as a man that heareth not : and in whose { mouth are no re-proofs.

15 For in thee, O Lord, Į have I put my trust: thou shalt answer { for me, O Lord my God.

16 I have required that they, even mine enemies,* { should not tri-umph over me: for when my foot slipped,* they rejoiced { greatly a-gainst me.

17 And I, truly, am { set in the plague : and my heaviness is { ev-er in my sight.

18 For I { will con-fess my wicked-ness : and besor-ry for my sin.

19 But mine enemies { live and are migh-ty:

and they that hate me wrongfully are many in num-ber.

20 They also that reward } evil for good are against me: because I follow the { thing that good is.

21 Forsake me { not, O Lord, my God: be not { thou far from me.

22 Haste { thee to help me: 0 Lord God of { my sal-va-tion.

Evening Prayer.

[cii, cxxx, cxliii.] PSALM cii. Domine, exaudi.

Tone 8. C. (2.) p. 15.

† (1.) p. 15.

Hear my prayer, O Į Lord: and let my crying come unto { thee.

2 Hide not thy face from me in the time of my trou-ble : incline thine ear unto me when I call ;* O hear me, and that right { soon.

3 For my days are consumed away like smoke : and my bones are burned up as it were a { firebrand.

: 4 My heart is smitten down, and withered like { grass : so that I forget to eat my { bread.

5 For the voice of my groan-ing: my bones will scarce cleave to my } flesh.

6 I am become like a pelican in the { wilderness: and like an owl that is in the { de-sert.

? I have watched, and am even as it were a { spar-row : that sitteth alone upon the house-top.

8 Mine enemies revile me all the day { long : and they that are mad upon me are sworn together a- { gainst me. · 9 For I have eaten ashes as it were { bread : and mingled my drink with { weep-ing.

10 And that because of thine indignation and { wrath : for thou hast taken me up and cast me { down.

11 My days are gone like a shá-dow: and I am withered like grass.

12 † But thou, O Lord, shalt endure for { ev-er : · and thy remembrance throughout all gener- { a-tions.

13 + Thou shalt arise,* and have mercy upon {Sé-on : for it is time that thou have mercy upon her, * yea, the time is { come.

14 † And why ?* thy servants think upon her { stones : and it pitieth them to see her in the { dust.

15 † The heathen shall fear thy Name, O { Lord: and all the kings of the earth thy { Majes-ty;

16 + When the Lord shall build up { si-on: and when his glory shall ap- pear; :

17 † When he turneth him unto the prayer of the poor {des-titute : and despiseth not their de- { sire.

18 † This shall be written for those that come { af-ter: and the people which shall be born shall praise the { Lord.

19 † For he hath looked down from his { sanctuary: out of the heaven did the Lord behold the earth;

20 + That he might hear the mournings of such as are in cap- {ti-vity: and deliver the children appointed unto death ;

21 † That they may declare the Name of the Lord in {Si-on: and his worship at Je- {rusa-lem;

22 † When the people are gathered to- { ther : and the kingdoms also,* to serve the Lord.

23 He brought down my strength in my journey: and shortened my { days.

24 But I said, * O my God,, take me not away
