The Psalter for Day 3, Morning


Psalm 15

The Fifteenth Psalm

Domine, quis habitabit?


LORD, who shall dwell in thy tabernacle? * or who shall rest upon thy holy hill?
 
Even he that leadeth an uncorrupt life, * and doeth the thing which is right, and speaketh the truth from his heart.
 
He that hath used no deceit in his tongue, nor done evil to his neighbour, * and hath not slandered his neighbour.
 
He that setteth not by himself, but is lowly in his own eyes, * and maketh much of them that fear the LORD.
 
He that sweareth unto his neighbour, and disappointeth him not, * though it were to his own hindrance.
 
He that hath not given his money upon usury, * nor taken reward against the innocent.
 
Whoso doeth these things * shall never fall.

Psalm 16

The Sixteenth Psalm

Conserva me, Domine.


PRESERVE me, O God; * for in thee have I put my trust.
 
O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, * Thou art my God; I have no good like unto thee.
 
All my delight is upon the saints that are in the earth, * and upon such as excel in virtue.
 
But they that run after another god * shall have great trouble.
 
Their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, * neither make mention of their names within 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 reins also chasten me in the night season.
 
I have set the LORD alway before me; * for he is on my right hand, therefore I shall not fall.
 
Wherefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: * my flesh also shall rest in hope.
 
For why? thou shalt not leave my soul in hell; * neither shalt thou suffer thy Holy One to see corruption.
 
Thou shalt show me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulness of joy, * and at thy right hand there is pleasure for evermore.

Psalm 17

The Seventeenth Psalm

Exaudi, Domine.


HEAR the right, O LORD, consider my complaint, * and hearken unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.
 
Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; * and let thine eyes look upon the thing that is equal.
 
Thou hast proved and visited mine heart in the night season; thou hast tried me, and shalt find no wickedness in me; * for I am utterly purposed that my mouth shall not offend.
 
As for the works of men, * by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the ways of the destroyer.
 
O hold thou up my goings in thy paths, * that my footsteps slip not.
 
I have called upon thee, O God, for thou shalt hear me: * incline thine ear to me, and hearken unto my words.
 
Show thy marvellous loving-kindness, thou that art the Saviour of them which put their trust in thee, * from such as resist thy right hand.
 
Keep me as the apple of an eye; * hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
 
From the ungodly, that trouble me; * mine enemies compass me round about, to take away my soul.
 
They are inclosed in their own fat, * and their mouth speaketh proud things.
 
They lie waiting in our way on every side, * watching to cast us down to the ground;
 
Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, * and as it were a lion's whelp lurking in secret places.
 
Up, LORD, disappoint him, and cast him down; * deliver my soul from the ungodly, by thine own sword;
 
Yea, by thy hand, O LORD; from the men of the evil world; * which have their portion in this life, whose bellies thou fillest with thy hid treasure.
 
They have children at their desire, * and leave the rest of their substance for their babes.
 
But as for me, I shall behold thy presence in righteousness; * and when I awake up after thy likeness, I shall be satisfied.
