TONE 4.

That they might keep his statutes : and observe his laws.

Evening Prayer.

Psalm cvi. Confitemini Domino.

O GIVE thanks unto the Lórd, for he is grácious : and his mercy endureth for érer.

Who can express the noble acts of the Lord : or shew forth all his praise ?

Blessed are they that álway keep judgment : and do righteousness.

Remember me, O Lord*, according to the favour that thou bearest unto thy people : O vísit me with thy salvation;

That I may see the felicity of thy chosen : and rejoice in the gladness of thy people *, and give thanks with thine inhérítance.

We have sinned with our fathers : we have done amiss, and dealt wickedly.

Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt*, neither kept they thy great goodness in remembrance: but were disobedient at the sea*, evěn at the Red

sea.

Nevertheless, he hélped them for his Náme's sake : that he might make his power to be known.

He rebuked the Red sea also*, and it was dried

up : so he led them through the deép, as through a wildărness.

And he saved them from the adversăry's hand : and delivered them from the hand of the eněmy.

As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them : there was not one of them léft.

Then beliéved they his words : and sang praise unto him.

But within a while they fórgat his works : and would not åbíde his counsel.

But lust came upon them in the wílderness : and they tempted God in thě désert.

And he gáve thěm their děsire : and sent leánness withal into their soul.

They ángered Moses also in the tents : and Aaron thể saint of thể Lord. So the earth opened *, and swallowed

up Dáthan : and covered the congregation of Abíram.

And the fire was kindled in their company : the fame burnt up the ungódly.

They made a calf in Horeb : and worshipped the molten ímage.

Thus they túrněd their glóry : into the similitude of a calf that eateth hay.

And they forgat God their Saviour : who had done so great things in Égypt;

Wondrous works in the land of Ham : and fearful things by thě Réd sea.

TONE 4.

So he said, he would have destroyed them*, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the gap : to turn away his wrathful indignation *, lést hě should destroy them.

Yea, they thought scorn of that pleasănt land : and gave no créděnce unto his word;

But murmured in their tents : and hearkened not unto the voice of thě Lord.

Then lift he up his hand ågainst them : to overthrow them in the wilděrness ;

To cast out their seed among the nations : and to scatter them in thě lands.

They joined themselves unto Baal-peor : and ate the offerings of the dead.

Thus they provoked him to anger with their own inventions : and the plague wås great among them.

Then stood up Phíněes and prayed : and so thě plágue ceased.

And that was counted unto him for righteousness : among all postéritiès for evermore.

They angered him also at the waters of strife : so that he punished Moses for their sakes;

Because they provókěd his spirit : so that he spake unadvísědly with his lips.

Neither destroyed they the heathen : as thě Lord commanded them;

But were mingled among the heathen : and leárněd their works.

TONE 4.

Insomuch that they worshipped their idols *, which túrned to their own decáy : yea, they offered their sons and their daúghtěrs unto dévils ;

And shed innocent blood *, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters : whom they offered unto the idols of Canaan*; and the land was děfiled with blood.

Thus were they stained with theěr ówn works : and went a whoring with their own inventions.

Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled ågainst his people : insomuch that he abhórred his own inhéritance.

And he gave them over into the hand of the heathen : and they that háted them were lords ověr them.

Their enemies oppressěd them : and hád thěm in subjéction.

Mány a time did he děliver them : but they rebelled against him with their own inventions*, and were brought down in their wickědness.

Névertheless, when he saw their ádvérsity : he heard their complaint.

He thought upon his covenant, and pitied them*, according unto the multitude of his mercies : yea, be made all those that led them away cáptive to pítý them.

Deliver us, O Lord our God *, and gather us from among the heathen : that we may give thánks unto thy holy Name*, and make oŭr boast of thy praise.

TONE 4.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting, and world without end : and let áll the peoplě say, Ámen.

THE TWENTY-SECOND DAY.

Morning Prayer.

Psalm cvii. Confitemini Domino.

TONE 8.

O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious : and his mercy endúrěth for ever.

Let them give thanks whom the Lord hath rě deemed : and delivered from the hand of thě éněmy;

And gathered them out of the lands*, from the east, and from the west : from the north, and from thě south.

They went astray in the wílderness out of thě way: and found no cítī to dwell in;

Hungry and thirsty : their soul fainted in them.

So they cried unto the Lord in their trouble : and he delivered them from their distréss.

He led them forth by the right way : that they might go to the cíty where they dwelt.
