Psalms 6-7 & Psalm 8


Domine, ne in furore

O LORD, rebuke me not in thine indignation : neither chasten me in thy displeasure.
2. Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak : O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed.
3. My soul also is sore troubled : but, Lord, how long wilt thou punish me?
4. Turn thee, O Lord, and deliver my soul : O save me for thy mercy’s sake.
5. For in death no man remembereth thee : and who will give thee thanks in the pit?
6. I am weary of my groaning; every night wash I my bed : and water my couch with my tears.
7. My beauty is gone for very trouble : and worn away because of all mine enemies.
8. Away from me, all ye that work vanity : for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9. The Lord hath heard my petition : the Lord will receive my prayer.
10. All mine enemies shall be confounded, and sore vexed : they shall be turned back, and put to shame suddenly.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Domine, Deus meus

O LORD my God, in thee have I put my trust : save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me;
2. Lest he devour my soul, like a lion, and tear it in pieces : while there is none to help.
3. O Lord my God, if I have done any such thing : or if there be any wickedness in my hands;
4. If I have rewarded evil unto him that dealt friendly with me : yea, I have delivered him that without any cause is mine enemy,
5. Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me : yea, let him tread my life down upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.
6. Stand up, O Lord, in thy wrath, and lift up thyself, because of the indignation of mine enemies : arise up for me in the judgement that thou hast commanded.
7. And so shall the congregation of the people come about thee : for their sakes therefore lift up thyself again.
8. The Lord shall judge the people; give sentence with me, O Lord : according to my righteousness, and according to the innocency that is in me.
9. O let the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end : but guide thou the just.
10. For the righteous God : trieth the very hearts and reins.
11. My help cometh of God : who preserveth them that are true of heart.
12. God is a righteous Judge, strong and patient : and God is provoked every day.
13. If a man will not turn, he will whet his sword : he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
14. He hath prepared for him the instruments of death : he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors
15. Behold, he travaileth with mischief : he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth ungodliness.
16. He hath graven and digged up a pit : and is fallen on himself into the destruction that he made for other.
17. For his travail shall come upon his own head : and his wickedness shall fall on his own pate.
18. I will give thanks unto the Lord, according to his righteousness : and I will praise the Name of the Lord most High.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.


Domine, Dominus noster

O LORD our Governor, how excellent is thy Name in all the world : thou that hast set thy glory above the heavens!
2. Out of the mouth of very babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies : that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3. For I will consider thy heavens, even the works of thy fingers : the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained.
4. What is man, that thou art mindful of him : and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5. Thou madest him lower than the angels : to crown him with glory and worship.
6. Thou makest him to have dominion of the works of thy hands : and thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet;
7. All sheep and oxen : yea, and the beasts of the field;
8. The fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea : and whatsoever walketh through the paths of the seas.
9. O Lord our Governor : how excellent is thy Name in all the world!

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
