Such as be foolish shall not stand in thy sight; for thou hatest all those who work vanity.

Thou shalt destroy those who speak falsehood; the Lord will abhor both the bloodthirsty and deceitful

man.

But as for me, I will come into thy house, even upon the multitude of thy mercy; and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies; make thy way plain before my face.

Let all those who put their trust in thee rejoice; they shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them; they who love thy name shall be joyful in thee.

For thou, Lord, wilt give thy blessing unto the righteous; and with thy favourable kindness wilt thou defend him as with a shield.

PSALM 7.

O LORD my God, in thee have I put my trust; save me from all those who persecute me, and deliver me;

Lest he devour my soul like a lion, and tear it in pieces, while there is none to help.

O Lord my God, if I have done this thing; or if there be any wickedness in my hands;

If I have rewarded evil unto him who dealt friendly with me; (yea, I have delivered him who without any cause is mine enemy ;)

Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread my life down upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.

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.

Olet the wickedness of the ungodly come to an end; but guide thou the just.

For the righteous God trieth the very hearts and reins.

O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my God; my good deeds are nothing unto thee;

But to the saints who are on the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.

They who run after another god, shall have great trouble.

Their drink offerings of blood will I not offer; neither make mention of their names with my lips.

The Lord himself is the portion of mine inheritance, and of my cup; thou shalt maintain my lot.

The lot is fallen unto me in a fair ground; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

I will thank the Lord for giving me warning; my secret thoughts also instruct me in the night sea

son.

I have set the Lord alway before me; for he is on my right hand, therefore I shall not fall.

Wherefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also shall rest in hope.

For why? thou shalt not leave my soul in the grave; neither shalt thou suffer

thy holy one to see corruption.

Thou shalt show me the path of life; in thy presence is fulness of joy; and at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Now unto the King eternal, &c. Be honour and glory, &c.

The Third Day.

MORNING PRAYER.

PSALM 18.

I WILL love thee, O Lord, my strength; the Lord is my rock, and my defence; my Saviour, my God, and my might, in whom I will trust; my buckler, the horn also of my salvation, and my refuge.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be safe from mine enemies.

When the waves of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodliness made me afraid;

When the sorrows of the grave surrounded me, and the toils of death overtook me;
