The Psalter or Psalms of David
The Twenty-third Day.
Psalm 110. Dixit Dominus.
THE LORD said unto my Lord, * Sit thou on my right hand, until
I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy power out of Sion: * be
thou ruler, even in the midst among thine enemies.
3 In the day of thy power shall thy people offer themselves willingly
with an holy worship: * thy young men come to thee as dew from
the womb of the morning.
4 The LORD sware, and will not repent, * Thou art a Priest for
ever after the order of Melchizedek.
5 The Lord upon thy right hand * shall wound even kings in the
day of his wrath.
6 He shall judge among the heathen; * he shall fill the places
with the dead bodies, and smite in sunder the heads over divers
7 He shall drink of the brook in the way; * therefore shall he
lift up his head.
Psalm 111. Confitebor tibi.
I WILL give thanks unto the LORD with my whole heart, * secretly
among the faithful, and in the congregation.
2 The works of the LORD are great, * sought out of all them that
have pleasure therein.
3 His work is worthy to be praised and had in honour, * and his
righteousness endureth for ever.
4 The merciful and gracious LORD hath so done his marvellous
works, * that they ought to be had in remembrance.
5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him; * he shall ever
be mindful of his covenant.
6 He hath showed his people the power of his works, * that he
may give them the heritage of the heathen.
7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; * all his commandments
8 They stand fast for ever and ever, * and are done in truth
9 He sent redemption unto his people; * he hath commanded his
covenant for ever; holy and reverend is his Name.
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; * a good
understanding have all they that do thereafter; his praise endureth
Psalm 112. Beatus vir.
BLESSED is the man that feareth the LORD; * he hath great delight
in his commandments.
2 His seed shall be mighty upon earth; * the generation of the
faithful shall be blessed.
3 Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house; * and his righteousness
endureth for ever.
4 Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness; * he
is merciful, loving, and righteous.
5 A good man is merciful, and lendeth; * and will guide his words
6 For he shall never be moved: * and the righteous shall be had
in everlasting remembrance.
7 He will not be afraid of any evil tidings; * for his heart
standeth fast, and believeth in the LORD.
8 His heart is stablished, and will not shrink, * until he see
his desire upon his enemies.
9 He hath dispersed abroad, and given to the poor. * and his
righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with
10 The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him; * he shall
gnash with his teeth, and consume away; the desire of the ungodly
Psalm 113. Laudate, pueri.
PRAISE the LORD, ye servants; * O praise the Name of the LORD.
2 Blessed be the Name of the LORD * from this time forth for
3 The LORD'S Name is praised * from the rising up of the sun
unto the going down of the same.
4 The LORD is high above all nations, * and his glory above the
5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, that hath his dwelling so
high, * and yet humbleth himself to behold the things that are
in heaven and earth!
6 He taketh up the simple out of the dust, * and lifteth the
poor out of the mire;
7 That he may set him with the princes, * even with the princes
of his people.
8 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, * and to be a joyful
mother of children.
Psalm 114. In exitu Israel.
WHEN Israel came out of Egypt, * and the house of Jacob from
among the strange people,
2 Judah was his sanctuary, * and Israel his dominion.
3 The sea saw that, and fled; * Jordan was driven back.
4 The mountains skipped like rams, * and the little hills like
5 What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou fleddest? * and thou
Jordan, that thou wast driven back?
6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams? * and ye little hills,
like young sheep?
7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord: * at the
presence of the God of Jacob;
8 Who turned the hard rock into a standing water, ': and the
flint-stone into a springing well.
Psalm 115. Non nobis, Domine.
NOT unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy Name give the
praise; * for thy loving mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
2 Wherefore shall the heathen say, * Where is now their God?
3 As for our God, he is in heaven: * he hath done whatsoever
4 Their idols are silver and gold, * even the work of men's hands.
5 They have mouths, and speak not; * eyes have they, and see
6 They have ears, and hear not; * noses have they, and smell
7 They have hands, and handle not; feet have they, and walk not;
* neither speak they through their throat.
8 They that make them are like unto them; * and so are all such
as put their trust in them.
9 But thou, house of Israel, trust thou in the LORD; * he is
their helper and defender.
10 Ye house of Aaron, put your trust in the LORD; * he is their
helper and defender.
11 Ye that fear the LORD, put your trust in the LORD; * he is
their helper and defender.
12 The LORD hath been mindful of us, and he shall bless us; *
even he shall bless the house of Israel, he shall bless the house
13 He shall bless them that fear the LORD, * both small and great.
14 The LORD shall increase you more and more, * you and your
15 Ye are the blessed of the LORD, * who made heaven and earth.
16 All the whole heavens are the LORD'S; * the earth hath he
given to the children of men.
17 The dead praise not thee, O LORD, * neither all they that
go down into silence.
18 But we will praise the LORD, * from this time forth for evermore.
Praise the LORD.
