The Psalter or Psalms of David

The Twenty-third Day.

Morning Prayer.

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 countries.
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 are true.
8 They stand fast for ever and ever, * and are done in truth and equity.
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 for ever.

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 with discretion.
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 honour.
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 shall perish.

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 evermore.
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 heavens.
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.

Evening Prayer.

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 young sheep.
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 pleased him.
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 not.
6 They have ears, and hear not; * noses have they, and smell not.
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 of Aaron.
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 children.
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.
