3 Know this also, that the Lord hath chosen to himself the man that is godly: when I call upon the Lord he will hear me.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not; commune with your own heart, and in your chamber, and be still.

10 Their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.

11 Destroy thou them, O God let them perish through their own imaginations; cast them out in the multitude of their ungodliness; for they have rebelled against thee.

12 And let all them that put their trust in thee rejoice: they shall ever be giving of thanks, because thou defendest them; they that love thy name shall be joyful in thee:

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

EVENING PRAYER.

6 There be many that say, Who will show us any good?

7 Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.

8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, since the time that their corn, and wine, and oil increased.

3 My voice shalt thou hear betimes, O Lord; early in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

4 For thou art the God that hast no pleasure in wickedness; neither shall any evil dwell with thee.

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.

15 Behold, he travaileth with mischief; he hath conceived sorrow, and brought forth ungodliness.

Psalm 7. Domine, Deus meus. LORD, my God, in thee have all them that persécute 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.

16 He hath graven and digged up a pit, and is fallen 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. Psalm 8. Domine, Dominus noster.

LORD, our Governor, how excellent is thy name in all the world; thou that hast set thy glory above the heavens!

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 judg ment that thou hast commanded:

7 But the Lord shall endure for ever; he hath also prepared his seat for judgment.

8 For he shall judge the world in righteousness, and minister true judgment unto the people.

9 The Lord also will be a defence for the oppressed, even a refuge in due time of trouble.

10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee.

14 That I may show all thy praises within the ports of the daughter of Sion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made; in the same net which they hid privily is their foot taken.

16 The Lord is known to execute judgment; the ungodly is trapped in the work of his own hands.

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the people that forget God.

18 For the poor shall not alway be forgotten; the patient abiding of the meek shall not perish for ever.

19 Up, Lord, and let not man have the upper hand; let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

20 Put them in fear, O Lord, that the heathen may know themselves to be but men.

2 The ungodly, for his own lust, doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the crafty wiliness that they have imagined.

3 For the ungodly hath made boast of his own heart's desire, and speaketh good of the covetous, whom God abhorreth.
