17 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fearuhim :

And upon them that put their trust in his mercy ; 18 To deliver their soul from death :

And to feed them in the time of dearth. 19 Our soul hath patiently tarried for the Lord :

For he is our help, and our shield. 20 For our heart shall re-joice in him :

Because we have hoped in his ho-ly Name. 21 Let thy merciful kindness, O Lord, be up-onuus ·

Like as we do put our trust in thee.

Psalm XXXIV. Benedicam Domino.
T WILL alway give thanks un-to the Lord :
I His praise shall ever be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord :

The humble shall hear there-of, and be glad. 3 O praise the Lord with me :

And let us magni-fy his Name to-gether. 4 I sought the Lord, and he heardume : .

Yea, he delivered me out of all my fear. 5 They had an eye unto him, and were lightened :

And their faces were not a-shamed. 6 Lo, the poor crieth, and the Lord hear-eth him :

Yea, and saveth him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the Lord tarrieth round about them that

fear him : A•nd de-liver-eth them. 8 O taste, and see, how gracious the Lord is :

Blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 9 O fear the Lord, ye that are his saints :

For they that fear him lack nothing. 10 The lions do lack, and suf-fer hunger : But they who seek the Lord shall want no manner of thing

that is good. 11 Come, ye children, and hearken un-to me :

I will teach you the fear of the Lord. 12 What man is he that lusteth to live :

And would fain see good days ? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil :

And thy lips, that they speak no guile. 14 Eschew evil, and do good :

Seek pea'ce, and en-suevit. 15 The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous :

And his ears are open un-to their prayers.

16 The countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil :

To root out the remembrance of them from the earth. 17 The righteous cry, and the Lord hear-eth them :

And delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a con-trite heart :

And will save such as be of an hum-ble spirit. 19 Great are the troubles of the righteous :

But the Lord de-livereth him out of all. 20 He keepeth all his bones :

So that not one of them is broken. 21 But misfortune shall slay the un-godly :

And they that hate the right-eous shall be desolate. 22 The Lord delivereth the souls of his servants :

And all they that put their trust in him shall not be destitute.

Day 7.]

Morning Prayer.

Psalm XXXV. Judica, Domine. DLEAD thou my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me: I And fight thou against them that fight against me. 2 Lay hand upon the shield and buckler :

And sta·nd up to helpume. 3 Bring forth the spear, and stop the way against them that

perse-cute me: Say unto my soul, I am thy sal-vation. 4 Let them be confounded, and put to shame, that seek after

my soul : Let them be turned back, and brought to confusion, that

i-ma-gine mis-chief forume. 5 Let them be as the dust be-fore the wind :

And the angel of the Loord scatter-ing them. 6 Let their way be dark and slippery :

And let the angel of the Loörd perse-cute them. 7 For they have privily laid their net to destroy me with-out

a cause : Yea, even without a cause have they made a pit for my soul. 8 Let a sudden destruction come upon him unawares, and his

net, that he hath laid privily, catch him-self: That he may fall in-to his own mischief. 9 And, my soul, be joyful in the Lord :

It shall re-joice in his sal-vation. 10 All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like unto thee, who

deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him :

Yea, the poor, and him that is in misery, from him that

spoil-eth him? 11 False witnesses did rise up :

They laid to my charge things that I knew not. 12 They rewarded me evil for good :

To the great dis-com-fort of my soul. 13 Nevertheless, when they were sick, I put on sackcloth, and

humbled my soul with fasting : And my prayer shall turn in-to mine own bosom. 14 I behaved myself as though it had been my friend, or my

brother: I went heavily, as one that mourn-eth for his mother. 15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered them-selves

to-gether : Yea, the very abjects came together against me unawares,

making mouths at me, and ceas-ed not. 16 With the flatterers were bu-sy mockers :

Who gnashed up-on me with their teeth. 17 Lord, how long wilt thou look upon this : () deliver my soul from the calamities which they bring on

me, and my dar-ling from the lions. 18 So will I give thee thanks in the great con-gre-gation :

I will praise thee a-mong much people. 19 O let not thein that are mine enemies triumph over me

un-godly: Neither let them wink with their eyes that hate me with-out

a cause. 20 And why ? their communing is not for peace : But they imagine deceitful words against them that are

qui-et in the land. 21 They gaped upon me with their mouths, and said :

Fie on thee, fie on thee, we saw it with our eyes. 22 This thou hast seen, O Lord :

Hold not thy tongue then, go not far from me, O Lord. 23 Awake, and stand up to judge my quarrel :

Avenge thou my cause, my God, and my Lord. 24 Judge me, O Lord my God, according to thy righteous

ness : And let them not tri-umph o-ver me. 25 Let them not say in their hearts, There, there, so would we

havevit : Neither let them say, We have de-voureduhim. 26 Let them be put to confusion and shame together, that

rejoice at my trouble :

Let them be clothed with rebuke and dishonour, that boast

them-selves a-gainstume. 27 Let them be glad and rejoice, that favourmy right-eous dealing : Yea, let them say alway, Blessed be the Lord, who hath

pleasure in the pros-peri-ty of his servant. 28 And as for my tongue, it shall be talking of thy righteousness :

And of thy praise all the day long.

Psalm XXXVI. Dicit injustus.
M y heart sheweth me the wickedness of thevun-godly :
I That there is no fear of God be-fore his eyes.
2 For he flattereth himself in his own sight :

Until his abominable sin be fou.nd out. 3 The words of his mouth are unrighteous, and full of de-ceit:

He hath left off to behave himself wisely, and to do good. 4 He imagineth mischief upon his bed, and hath set himself in

no good way : Neither doth he abhor any thing that is evil. 5 Thy mercy, O Lord, reacheth un-to the heavens :

And thy faithful-ness un-to the clouds. 6 Thy righteousness standeth like the strong mountains :

Thy judgements are like the great deep. 7 Thou, Lord, shalt save both man and beast; how excellent

is thy mercy, O God: And the children of men shall put their trust under the

sha-dow of thy wings. .8 They shall be satisfied with the plenteousness of thy house : And thou shalt give them drink of thy pleasures, as out of

the river. 9 For with thee is the well of life:

And in thy light shall we see light. 10 O continue forth thy loving-kindness unto them that know thee :

And thy righteousness unto them that are true of heart. 11 O let not the foot of pride come a-gainstume :

And let not the hand of the un-god-ly cast me down. 12 There are they fallen, all that work wickedness :

They are cast down, and shall not be able to stand.

Evening Prayer.

Psalm XXXVII. Noli æmulari.
TRET not thyself because of the un-godly :
T Neither be thou envious a-gainst the e-vil doers.

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass :

And be withered even as the green herb. 3 Put thou thy trust in the Lord, and be do-ing good :

Dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 4 Delight thou in the Lord :

And he shall give thee thy heart's de-sire. 5 Commit thy way unto the Lord, and put thy trust in him :

And he shall bring it to pass. 6 He shall make thy righteousness as clear as the light :

And thy just deal-ing as the noon-day. 7 Hold thee still in the Lord, and abide patiently up-on

him : But grieve not thyself at him, whose way doth prosper,

against the man that doeth af-ter e-vil counsels. 8 Leave off from wrath, and let go dis-pleasure :

Fret not thyself, else shalt thou be mo-ved to do evil. 9 Wicked doers shall be root-ed out : And they that patiently abide the Lord, those shall in-herit

the land. 10 Yet a little while, and the ungodly shall be clean gone :

Thou shalt look after his place, and he shall be a-way. 11 But the meek-spirited shall pos-sess the earth :

And shall be refreshed in the mul-ti-tude of peace. 12 The ungodly seeketh counsel a-gainst the just :

And gnasheth up-on him with his teeth. 13 The Lord shall laugh him to scorn :

For he hath seen that his day is coming. 14 The ungodly have drawn out the sword, and have bent their

bow: To cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as are

of auright con-ver-sation. 15 Their sword shall go through their own heart :

And their bow shall be broken. 16 A small thing that the right-eous hath :

Is better than great riches of the un-godly. 17 For the arms of the ungodly shall be broken :

And the Lord up-holdeth the righteous. 18 The Lord knoweth the days of the godly :

And their inheritance shall en-dure for ever. 19 They shall not be confounded in the peril-ous time :

And in the days of dearth they shall have e-nough. 20 As for the ungodly, they shall perish; and the enemies of

the Lord shall consume as the fat of lambs : Yea, even as the smoke, shall they con-sume a-way.
