Give ear to my words, O Lord; consider my meditation, hearken unto the voice of my cry, my king, and my God; for unto thee will I pray, my voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up, for thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness : neither shall evil dwell with thee, the foolish shall not stand in thy sight; thou hatest all workers of iniquity, thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing, the Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man, but as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy ; and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.—Ps. v. 1—7.

me,

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord, for ever ?

Consider and hear me; O Lord my God, lighten mine eyes lest I sleep the sleep of death, lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him, and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. -Ps. xii. 1,

&c. Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted ; the troubles of my heart are enlarged, O bring thou me out of my distresses.
