TWENTY-FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH.

Morning.

PSA L M

L.

THE
NHE mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken, and called

the earth from the rising of the sun unto the goingdown thereof.

2. Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

3. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.

4. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.

5. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.

6. And the heavens shall declare his righteousness; for God is judge himself.

7. Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.

8. I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burntofferings, to have been continually before me.

9. I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he-goats out of thy folds.

10. For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

11. I know all the fowls of the mountains; and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

12. If I were hungry, I would not tell thee; for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

13. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of

goats?

14. Offer unto God thanksgiving, and pay thy vows unto the Most High ;

15. And call upon me in the day of trouble : I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

16. But, unto the wicked, God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth ?

17. Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.

18. When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.

19. Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.

20. Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother ; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.

21. These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

22. Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

23. Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me; and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.

Afternoon.

PSALM CXXX.

OUT

UT of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.

2. Lord, hear my voice : let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

3. If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand ?

4. But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

5. I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait; and in his word do I hope.

6. My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning : I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

7. Let Israel hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.

8. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

TWENTY-SECOND DAY OF THE MONTH.

Morning.

PS A L M LXII.

TRULY my soul waiteth upon God : from him cometh

my salvation. 2. He only is my

rock and

my
salvation ; he is

my

defence: I shall not be greatly moved.

3. How long will ye imagine mischief against a man? Ye shall be slain, all of you : as a bowing wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.

4. They only consult to cast him down from his excellency; they delight in lies ; they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly.

5. My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. 6. He only is my

rock and my

salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved.

7. In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

8. Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us,

9. Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.

10. Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your

heart
upon

them. 11. God hath spoken once ; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

12. Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy; for thou renderest to every man according to his work.

Afternoon.

PSA L M CXIX. 1-16.

BLESSE are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the

law of the LORD. 2. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

3. They also do no iniquity : they walk in his ways.

4. Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.

5. O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes !

6. Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

7. I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

8. I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

9. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

10. With my whole heart have I sought thee : O let me not wander from thy commandments.

11. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. 12. Blessed art thou, O LORD : teach me thy statutes.

13. With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

14. I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

15. I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

16. I will delight myself in thy statutes : I will not forget thy word.

TWENTY-THIRD DAY OF THE MONTH.

Morning.

PSA L M LXV.

PRAISE

RAISE waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion; and unto thee

shall the vow be performed. 2. O Thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh

come.

3. Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.

4. Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts : we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

5. By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation ; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the

sea:

6. Which by his strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:

7. Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.
