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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
