A SELECTION

FROM THE

PSALMS OF DA VID.

The First Way.

MORNING PRAYER.

PSALM 1.

BLESSED is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so; but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous : but the way of the ungodly leadeth to destruction.

PSALM III.

How many, O Lord, are they that trouble me! how many are they that rise up against me!

How many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God.

But thou, O Lord, art my shield, my deliverer, and the lifter

up
of
my

head. I cry unto the Lord with my voice, and he heareth me out of his holy hill.

I lay me down and sleep; I awake, for the Lord sustaineth me.

Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God; for salvation belongeth unto the Lord: thy blessing is upon thy people.

PSALM IV.

HEAR me when I call, O God my defender: thou hast helped me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.

I know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.

Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the Lord.

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, and invisible, the only wise God, Be honor and glory, through Jesus Christ, forever

Amen,

and ever.

The First Day.

EVENING PRAYER.

PSALM V.

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.

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.

Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness, make thy way straight before my face.

Let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.

For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield.
