them in his displeasure, and the fire shall consume them. 10 Their fruit shalt thou root out of the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. 11 For they intended mischief against thee, and imagined such a device as they are not able to perform ; 12 Therefore shalt thou put them to flight, and the strings of thy bow shalt thou make ready against the face of them, 13 Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength; so will we sing and praise thy power.


Psalm xxii. Deus, Deus 77tezzs. Y God, my God, look upon me! why hast thou forsaken me, and art so far from my health, and from the words of my complaint : 2 O my God, I cry in the day-time, but thou hearest not ; and in the night-season also I take no rest. 3 And thou continuest holy, O thou worship of Israel. 4 Our fathers hoped in thee; they trusted in thee, and thou didst deliver them. 5 They called upon thee; and were holpen; they put their trust in thee, and were not confounded. 6 But as for me, I am a worm, and no man; a very scorn of men, and the out-cast of the people. 7 All they that see me,

out their lips, and shake their heads, saying, 8 He trusted in God, that he would deliver him; let him deliver him, if he will have him. 9 But thou art he that took me out of my mother's womb'; thou wast my hope, when I hanged yet upon my mother's, breasts. 10 I have been left unto thee ever since I was born ; thou art my God even from my mother's womb. 11 :) go not from me ; for trouble is hard at hand, and there is none to help me. 12 Many oxen are come about me ; fat bulls of Basan close me in on every side. 13 They gape upon me with their mouths, as it were a ramping and a roaring lion. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart also in the midst of my body is even like melting wax. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue cleaveth to my gums, and thou shalt bring me into the dust of death. 16 Formany dogs are come about me, and the council of the wicked layeth siege against me 17 They pierced my hands, and my fect: I may tell all my bones : they stand staring and looking upon me. 18 They part my garments among them, and cast losts upon my vesture. 19 But be not thou far from me, O Lord; thou art my suc_

laugh me to scorn; they shoot

20 Deliver my soul from the sword, my darling from the power of the dog. 21 Save me from the lion's mouth ; thou hast heard me also from among the horns of the unicorns. 22 I will declare thy Name unto my brethren ; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee. 23 () praise the Lord, ye that fear him; magnify him all ye of the seed of Jacob ; and fear him, all ye seed of Israel. 24 For he hath not despised nor abhorred the low estate of the poor; he hath not hid his face from him ; but when he called unto him he heard him. 25 My praise is of thee in the great congregation ; my vows will I perform in the sight of them that fear him. 26 The poor shall eat, and be satisfied; they that seek after the Lord, shall praise him: your heart shall live forever. 27 All the ends of the world shall remember themselves, and be turned unto the Lord ; and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before him. 28 For the kingdom is the

Ilord's and he is the Governor

among the people.

earth have eaten, and wor-

into the dust shall kneel befo

him; they shall be counted un-

to the Lord for a generation. 32 They shall come. and the heavens shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, whom the Lord hath made.

Psal. xxiii. Dominus regit me.
Th; Lord is my shep-
herd; therefore can I
lack nothing.
2 He shall feed me in a
green pasture, and lead me
forth beside the waters of
3 He shall convert my soul,
and bring me forth in the
paths of righteousness for his
Name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk thro'
the valley of the shadow of
death, I will fear no evil ; for
thou art with me, thy rod and
thy staff comfort me.
5 Thou shalt prepare a ta-
ble before me against them
that trouble me ; thou hast an-
ointed my head with oil, and
my cup shall be full.
6 But thy loving kindness
and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my life; and I
will dwell in the house of the
Lord for ever.

The Fifth Day. MOR.W.I.W.G. PRAYER. Psalm xxiv. Domini est terra. HE earth is the Lord’s, and all that therein is ; the compass of the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and prepared it upon the floods. 3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall rise up in his holy place?

4. Even he that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; and that hath not lift up his mind unto vanity, nor sworn to deceive his neighbour. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him ; even of them that seek thy face, O Jacob. 7 List up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye list up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is the King of glory? itisthe Lordstrong and mighty even the Lord mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye list up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Whoisthe King of glory? even the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Psalm. xxv. Md te, domine, levavi.

NTO thee, O Lord, will I list up my soul; my God, I have put my trust in thee: O let me not be conPounded, neither let mine enemies triumph over me. 2 For all they that hope in thee shall not be ashamed; but such as transgress without a cause, shall be put to confusion. 3. Show me thy ways, O Lord, and teach methy paths. 4 Lead me forthin thy truth, and learn me; for thou art the

5 Call to remembrance, O Lord, thy tender mercies, and tuy loving kindnesses, which mave been ever of old. 6 O remember not the sins and offences of my youth; but according to thy mercy think thou upon me, O Lord, sor thy goodness. 7 Gracious and righteous is the Lord; therefore will he teach sinners in the way. 8 Them that are meek shall he guide in judgment; and such as are gentle, them shall he learn his way. 9 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. 10 For thy Name's sake, O. Lord, be merciful unto my sin; for it is great. ll What man is he that feareth the Lord him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. 12 His soul shall dwell at ease, and his seed shall inherit the land. 13 The secret of the Lord is among them that fear him, and he will show them his Covenant. 14 Mine eyes are ever looking unto the Lord ; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net. 15 Turn thee unto me; and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate, and in misery. 16 The sorrows of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my troubles. 17 Look upon my edversity

God of my salvation: in thee hath been my hope all the day king.

and misery, and forgive mg all my sin.

18 Consider mine enemies how many they are; and they bear a tyrannous hate against me. 19 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be confounded, for I have put my trust in thee. 20 Let perfectness and righteous dealing wait upon me; for my hope hath been in thee. 21 Deliver Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.

Psalm xxvi. Judica me, Do

mine. Bo thou my judge, O Lord, for I have walked innocently: my trust hath been also in the Lord, therefore shall I not fall. 2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try out my reins and my heart. 3 For thy loving-kindness is ever before mine eyes; and I will walk in the truth. 4 I have not dwelt with vain persons: neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful. 5 I have hated the congregation of the wicked; and will not sit among the ungodly. 6 I will wash my hands in innocency, O Lord; and so will I go to thine altar. 7 That I may show the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. 8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. 9 O shut not up my soul with the sinners, nor my life

minatio. THE Lord is my light and salvation, whom then shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life, of whom then shall I be afraid : 2. When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 3 Though an host of men were laid against me, yet shall not my heart be afraid; and though there rose up war against me, yet will I put my trust in thee. 4. One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require; even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his temple. 5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his tabernacle, yea, in the secret place of his dwelling shall he hide me, and set me up upon a rock of stone. 6 And now shall he lift up mine head above mine enemies round about me. 7. Therefore will I offer in

with the blood-thirsty ;

his dwelling an oblation, with

great gladness: I will sing and
speak praises unto the Lord.
8 Hearken unto my voice,
O Lord, when I cry unto
thee ; have mercy upon me,
and hear me. .
s' My heart hath talked of
thee, Seek ye my face : thy
face, Lord, will 1 seek.
10 Ohide not thou thy face
from me, nor cast thy servant
away in displeasure.
11 Thou hast been my suc-
cour; leave me not, neither
forsake me, O God of my sal-
12 When my father and my
mother forsake me, the Lord
taketh me up.
13 Teach me thy way, O
Lord, and lead me in the right
Way, because of mine enemies.
14 Deliver me not over into
the will of mine adversaries :
for there are false witnesses
risen up against me, and such
as speak wrong.
15 I should utterly have
fainted, but that I believe ver-
ily to see the goodness of the
Lord in the land of the living.
16 O tarry thou the Lord’s
leisure ; be strong, and he
shall comfort thine heart; and
put thou thy trust in the Lord.

Psalm xxviii. Ad te, Domine.

NTO thee will I cry, O Lord, my strength: think no scorn of me; lest, if thou make as though thou hearest not, I become like them that go down into the pit. 2 Hear the voice of my humble petitions, when I cry

hands towards the mercy seat of thy holy tennple. 3 O pluck me not away, neither destroy me with the ungodly and wicked doers, which speak friendly to their neighbours, but imagine mischief in their hearts. 4 Reward them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their own inventions. 5 Recompense them after the work of their hands; pay them that they have deserved. 6 For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands; therefore shall he break them down, and not build them up. 7 Praised be the Lord ; for he hath heard the voice of my humble petitions. 8 The Lord is my strength, and my shield ; my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped; therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him. 9 The Lord is my strength, and he is the wholesome defence of his Anointed. 10 O save thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance : feed them, and set them up for ever. Psalm xxix. Afferte Domino. RING unto the Lord, O ye mighty, bring young rams unto the Lord ; ascribe unto the Lord worship and strength. 2 Give the Lord the honour due unto his name worship

unto thee; when I hold up my

the Lord with holy worship.
