Psalms 75-76 & Psalm 77

Morning

Confitebimur tibi

UNTO thee, O God, do we give thanks : yea, unto thee do we give thanks.
2. Thy Name also is so nigh : and that do thy wondrous works declare.
3. When I receive the congregation : I shall judge according unto right.
4. The earth is weak, and all the inhabiters thereof : I bear up the pillars of it.
5. I said unto the fools, Deal not so madly: and to the ungodly, Set not up your horn.
6. Set not up your horn on high : and speak not with a stiff neck.
7. For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west : nor yet from the south.
8. And why? God is the Judge : he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
9. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red : it is full mixed, and he poureth out of the same.
10. As for the dregs thereof : all the ungodly of the earth shall drink them, and suck them out.
11. But I will talk of the God of Jacob : and praise him for ever.
12. All the horns of the ungodly also will I break : and the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

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.

Notus in Judaea

IN JEWRY is God known : his Name is great in Israel.
2. At Salem is his tabernacle : and his dwelling in Sion.
3. There brake he the arrows of the bow : the shield, the sword, and the battle.
4. Thou art of more honour and might : than the hills of the robbers.
5. The proud are robbed, they have slept their sleep : and all the men whose hands were mighty have found nothing.
6. At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob : both the chariot and horse are fallen.
7. Thou, even thou art to be feared : and who may stand in thy sight when thou art angry?
8. Thou didst cause thy judgement to be heard from heaven : the earth trembled, and was still;
9. When God arose to judgement : and to help all the meek upon earth.
10. The fierceness of man shall turn to thy praise : and the fierceness of them shalt thou refrain.
11. Promise unto the Lord your God, and keep it, all ye that are round about him : bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.
12. He shall refrain the spirit of princes : and is wonderful among the kings of the earth.

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.


Evening

Voce mea ad Dominum

IWILL cry unto God with my voice : even unto God will I cry with my voice, and he shall hearken unto me.
2. In the time of my trouble I sought the Lord : my sore ran and ceased not in the night-season ; my soul refused comfort.
3. When I am in heaviness, I will think upon God : when my heart is vexed, I will complain.
4. Thou holdest mine eyes waking : I am so feeble, that I cannot speak.
5. I have considered the days of old : and the years that are past.
6. I call to remembrance my song : and in the night I commune with mine own heart, and search out my spirits.
7. Will the Lord absent himself for ever : and will he be no more intreated?
8. Is his mercy clean gone for ever : and is his promise come utterly to an end for evermore?
9. Hath God forgotten to be gracious : and will he shut up his loving-kindness in displeasure?
10. And I said, It is mine own infirmity : but I will remember the years of the right hand of the most Highest.
11. I will remember the works of the Lord : and call to mind thy wonders of old time.
12. I will think also of all thy works : and my talking shall be of thy doings.
13. Thy way, O God, is holy : who is so great a God as our God?
14. Thou art the God that doeth wonders : and hast declared thy power among the people.
15. Thou hast mightily delivered thy people : even the sons of Jacob and Joseph.
16. The waters saw thee, O God, the waters saw thee, and were afraid : the depths also were troubled.
17. The clouds poured out water, the air thundered : and thine arrows went abroad.
18. The voice of thy thunder was heard round about : the lightnings shone upon the ground : the earth was moved, and shook withal.
19. Thy way is in the sea, and thy paths in the great waters : and thy footsteps are not known.
20. Thou leddest thy people like sheep : by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

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.
