The Psalter

Psalm 54

The Fifty-Fourth Psalm

Deus, in nomine.

SAVE me, O God, for thy Name's sake, * and avenge me in thy strength.
Hear my prayer, O God, * and hearken unto the words of my mouth.
For strangers are risen up against me; * and tyrants, which have not God before their eyes, seek after my soul.
Behold, God is my helper; * the Lord is with them that uphold my soul.
He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: * destroy thou them in thy truth.
An offering of a free heart will I give thee, and praise thy Name, O LORD; * because it is so comfortable.
For he hath delivered me out of all my trouble; * and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.

Psalm 57

The Fifty-Seventh Psalm

Miserere mei, Deus.

BE merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me; for my soul trusteth in thee; * and under the shadow of thy wings shall be my refuge, until this tyranny be overpast.
I will call unto the Most High God, * even unto the God that shall perform the cause which I have in hand.
He shall send from heaven, * and save me from the reproof of him that would eat me up.
God shall send forth his mercy and truth: * my soul is among lions;
And I lie even among the children of men, that are set on fire, * whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens; * and thy glory above all the earth.
They have laid a net for my feet, and pressed down my soul; * they have digged a pit before me, and are fallen into the midst of it themselves.
My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; * I will sing and give praise.
Awake up, my glory; awake, lute and harp: * I myself will awake right early.
I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples; * and I will sing unto thee among the nations.
For the greatness of thy mercy reacheth unto the heavens, * and thy truth unto the clouds.
Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens; * and thy glory above all the earth.



 

The First Lesson

Micah 7:1-9

Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net. That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh, and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire: so they wrap it up. The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity. Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house. Therefore I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me. I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.



 

The Second Lesson

Romans 7:14

For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.



 

The Collect

Tenth Sunday after Trinity

LET thy merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of thy humble servants; and, that they may obtain their petitions, make them to ask such things as shall please thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
