- the heavens : and thy | truth. unto the eleda.

12 Set up thyself, O God, above - the hearens : and thy I glory. above all the earth.

Psalm kvin. Si rere utique. ARE your minds set upon righteousness, O ye A co.gregation : and do ye judge the thing that is right, - Oye Sons of mren?

2 Yea, ye imagine mischief in your heart up on the earth : and your hands | deal.scith wickedness.

3 The ungodly are froward, eren from their mo · ther's womb : as soon as they are born, they go a stray. and speak | lies.

4 They are as venomous as the poison . of a serpent : even like the deaf | adder. that stoppeth her ears;

5 Which refuseth to hear the voice of the charmer : charm 1 he never . $0 wisely.

6 Break their teeth, o God, in their mouths; smite the jaw-bones of the lions, .0 | Lord: let them fall away like water that runneth 'apace; and when they shoot their arrows | let them be rooted out.

7 Let them consume away like a snail, and be like the untimely i fruit of a woman : and let them not see the sun.

8 Or ever your pots be made | hot with thorns : so let indignation vex him, even as a thing that is raw.

9 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth. the | vengeance : he shall wash his footsteps in the blood. of' | the · un godly.

10 So that a man sball say, Verily there is a re) ward. for the righteous : doubtless there is a | God. that judgeth the | earth.

EVENING PRAYER.

Psalm lix. Eripe me de inimicis. DELIVER me from mine enemies, .0 | God:

O defend me from them that rise I up against me.

2 0 deliver me from the wick ed | doers : and save me from the · blood | thirsty I men.

3 For lo, they lie waiting for · my soul : the mighty men are gathered against me, without any offence or fault of me, 0 | Lord.

4 They run and prepare themselves with | out · my fault : arise thou therefore to help : me, I and · be hold.

5 Stand up, O Lord God of hosts, thou God of Israel, to visit | all · the l heathen: and be not merciful unto them that of | fend. of mal li · cious | wickedness.

6 They go to and fro: in the evening : they grin like a dog, and run · about | through the city.

7 Bebold, they speak with their mouth, and swords are in their | lips : for 1 | who · doth hear ?

8 But thou, O Lord, shalt have them in · del rision : and thou shalt | laugh · all the heathen. to scorn.

9 My strength will I as I cribe unto thee : for thou art. the God of · my l refuge.

10'God sheweth me his good · ness | plentcously : and God shall let me see my desire · up on mine enemies.

11 Slay them not, lest my people for get it : but scatter them abroad among the people, and put them down, .0 | Lord, our de l fence.

12 for the sin of their mouth, and for the words

of their lips, they shall be taken in their | pride : and why? their | preaching is of | cursing · and | lies.

13 Consume them in thy wrath, consume them, that they · may perish: and know that it is God that ruleth in Jacob, and | unto the ends of the | world.

14 And in the evening they | will return: grin like a dog, and will go al bout the city.

15 They will run here and there · for | meat : and grudge if they | benot sat.is fied.

16 As for me, I will sing of thy power, and will praise thy mercy be times in the morning : for thou hast been my defence and I refuge in the day of · my | trouble.

17 Unto thee, O my strength, : will I sing : for thou, O God, art my I refuge, . and mymerci · ful ! God.
