TONE 2.

workers of mischief : eating up my people as it were bread *, and call not úpon the Lord ?

There were they brought in great fear*, even where no fear was : for God is in the generation of the righteous.

As for you*, ye have made a mock at the counsel of the poor : because he putteth his trust in the Lord.

Who shall give salvation unto Israel out of Sion *? When the Lord turneth the captivity of his people : then shall Jacob rejoice *, and Israel shall be glad.

THE THIRD DAY.

Morning Prayer. PSALM Xv. Domine, quis habitabit ? (ASCENSION DAY, MORN.)

[ocr errors]

LORD, who shall dwell in thy tábernăcle : or who shall rest upon thy hóly hill ? · Even he that leadeth an uncorrupt life : and doeth the thing which is right*, and speaketh the truth from his heart.

He that hath used no deceit in his tongue*, nor done evil to his neighbour : and hath not slándered his neighbour.

TONE 8.

He that setteth not by himself*, but is lowly in his own eyes : and maketh much of thém thăt fear the Lord.

He that sweareth unto his neighbour, and disappointeth him not : though it were to his own hindrance.

He that hath not given his money upon úsůry : nor taken reward against the innocent. Whoso doeth these things : shall never fall.

• Psalm xvi. Conserva me, Domine.

TONE 2.

PRESERVE me, O God : for in thee have I put my trust.

O my soul*, thou hast said unto the Lord : Thou art my God*, my goods are nothing unto thee.

All my delight is upon the saints, that are in the earth : and upon such as excél in virtue.

But they that run after another god : shall have great trouble.

Their drink offerings of blood will I not offer : neither make mention of their námes within my lips.

The Lord himself is the portion of mine inheritance, and of my cup : thou shalt maintain my lot.

The lot is fallen unto me in a fair ground : yea, I have a goodly heritage.

[ocr errors]

I will thank the Lord for giving me warning: my reins also chasten me in the night season.

I have set God always before me : for he is on my right hand*, therefore I shall not fall.

Wherefore my heart was glad, and my glory rejoiced : my flesh also shall rest in hope.

For why* ? thou shalt not leave my soul in hell : neither shalt thou suffer thy Holy One to see corrúption.

Thou shalt shew me the path of life* ; in thy presence is the fulness of joy : and at thy right hand there is pleasure for evěrmore.

[merged small][ocr errors]

HEAR the right, O Lord *, consíděr my complaint : and hearken unto my prayer*, that goeth not out of feígned lips.

Let my sentence come forth from thy presence : and let thine eyes look upon the thing that is equal.

Thou hast proved and visited mine heart in the night-season * ; thou hast tried me, and shalt find no wickedness in me : for I am utterly purposed that my mouth shåll not offend.

Because of men's works, that are done against

TONE 1

the words of thy lips : I have kept me from the ways of the destroyer.

O hold thou up my góžngs in thy paths : that my footsteps slip not.

I have called upon thee, O God*, for thou shalt hear me : incline thine ear to me*, and hearken unto my words.

Shew thy marvellous loving-kindness *, thou that art the Saviour of them which put their trust in thee : from súch as résist thy right hand.

Keep me as the apple of an eye : hide me under the shadow of thy wings.

From the ungodly that trouble me : mine enemies compass me round about * to take åwáy my soul.

They are inclósed in their own fát : and their mouth speakěth proud things.

They lie waiting in our way on every side : turning their eyes down to the ground;

Like as a lion that is greédy of his prey : and as it were a lion's whelp*, lurking in secret places.

Up, Lord *, disappoint him, and cast him down : deliver my soul from the ungodly*, which is å sword of thine.

From the men of thy hand, O Lord *, from the men, I say, and from the evil world : which have their portion in this life*, whose bellies thou fillest with thy hid treasure.

TONE 1.

They have children at their desire : and leave the rest of their súbstănce for their babes.

But as for me*, I will behold thy presence in righteousness : and when I awake up after thy likeness*, I shall be satisfied with it.

Evening Prayer.
PSALM xviii. Diligam te, Domine.

TONE 6.

I WILL love thee, O Lord, my strength*; the Lord is my stony rock, and my defence : my Saviour, my God, and my might, in whom I will trust*, my buckler, the horn also of my salvation *, and my réfuge.

I will call upon the Lord, which is worthy to be praised : so shall I be safe from mine eněmies.

The sorrows of death compassěd me : and the overflowings of ungodliness made me afraid.

The pains of hell came about me : the snares of death overtook me.

In my trouble I will call upon the Lord : and complain unto my God.

So shall he hear my voice out of his holy temple : and my complaint shall come before him*, it shall enter even into his ears.
