PSALM liv. Deus, in nomine.

Tone 2. (1.) p. 3.

† (2.) p. 3.

Save me, O God, for thy { Name's sake and avenge me { in thy strength.

2 Hear my prayer, 0 { Gód: and hearken unto the words of my mouth.

3 + For strangers are risen up a- Į gainst me: and tyrants, which have not God before their eyes,* seek } after my soul.

4 Behold, God is my { help-er: the Lord is with them that up-} hold my soul.

5 He shall reward evil unto mine { én-emies : destroy thou them in thy truth.

6 An offering of a free heart will I give thee,* and praise thy Name, o į Lord : because it is so comfort-a-ble.

7 For he hath delivered me out of all my } trou-ble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine { en-e-mies.

Evening Prayer.

[lxix, lxxxviii.]
Psalm lxix. Salvum me fac.

Tone 3. A. p. 4.

Save { : me, © God: for the waters are come in, { e-ven unto my soul.

2 I stick fast in the deep mire, { where no ground is: I am come into deep waters,* so that the { floods run o-ver me.

3 I am weary of crying;* my throat is dry: my sight faileth me for waiting so { long up-on my God.

4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the { hairs of my head: they that are mine enemies,* and would destroy me { guiltless, are migh-ty.

5 I paid them the things that I nev-er took : God, thou knowest my simpleness,* and my } faults are not hid from thee.

6 Let not them that trust in thee, O Lord God of Hosts,* be a-{ shamed for my cause : let not those that seek thee be confounded through me,* O Lord { God of Is-ra-el.

Tone 3. A. p. 4.

7 And why? for thy sake have I { suffered reproof : shame hath { co-vered my face.

8 I am become a stranger } unto my bre-thren : even an alien unto my { mo-ther's chil-dren.

9 For the zeal of thine house hath { e-ven eat-en me: and the rebukes of them that rebuked thee are { fallen up-on me.

10 Iwept and chastened my- { self with fast-ing : and that was ļ turned to my re-proof.

11 I put on { sack-cloth al-so: and they { jested up-on me.

12 They that sit in the gate { speak a-gainst me: and the drunkards make { songs up-on me.

13 But, Lord, I make my prayer { un-to thee : in an { ac-cept-a-ble time.

14 Hear me, O God, in the multitude of thy mer-cy: even in the truth of { thy sal-va-tion.

15 Take me out of the mire, { that I sink not : O let me be delivered from them that hate me,

* and out of the { deep wa-ters.

16 Let not the water-flood drown me,* neither let the deep { swallow me up: and let not the pit shut her { mouth up - on me.

17 Hear me, O Lord,* for thy loving- }

kindness is comfort-a-ble : turn thee unto me* according to the multitude { of thy mer-cies.

18 And hide not thy face from thy servant,* for I { am in trou-ble: 0 {haste thee and hear me.

19 Draw nigh unto my { soul, and save it: 0 deliver me, be- {cause of mine en-e-mies.

20 Thou hast known my reproof, my shame, and } my dis-hon-our : mine adversaries are all in thy sight.

21 Thy rebuke hath broken my heart;* I am full of hea-vi-ness: I looked for some to have pity on me, but there was no man,* neither found I { any to com-fort me.

22 They gave me į gall to eat: and when I was thirsty they gave me { vin-e-gar to drink.

23 Let their table be made a snare to take them- {selves with - al: and let the things that should have been for their wealth* be unto them an OC- {casion of fall-ing.

24 Let their eyes be blinded, { that they see not: and ever { bow thou down their backs.

25 Pour out thine indig- { nation up-on them: and let thy wrathful dis- { pleasure take hold of them.

26 Let their habi- } tation be void: and no man to { dwell in their tents.

27 For they persecute him whom { thou hast smit-ten : and they talk how they may vex them whom { thou hast wound-ed.

28 Let them fall from one wickedness { to an-other: and not come into thy right-eous-ness.

29 Let them be wiped out of the { book of the Tiv-ing: and not be written a- { mong the right-eous.

30 (f) As for me, when I am { poor and in heaviness: thy help, o { God, shall lift me up.

31 (f) I will praise the Name of God { with a song: and magni- {fy it with thanks-giv-ing.

32 This also shall { please the Lord: better than a { bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

33 The humble shall consider this, { and be glad: seek ye after God, { and your soul shall live.

34 For the Lord { heareth the poor : and despiseth { not his pris-on-ers.
