PSALM 35 – DIXIT INIUSTUS

PSALM 35 – DIXIT INIUSTUS

THE MALICE OF SINNERS, AND THE GOODNESS OF GOD.

Unto the end, for the servant of God, David himself.

The unjust hath said within himself, that he would sin: there is no fear of God before his eyes.

For in his sight he hath done deceifully, that his iniquity may be found unto hatred.

The words of his mouth are iniquity and guile: he would not understand that he might do well.

He hath devised iniquity on his bed, he hath set himself on every way that is not good: but evil he hath not hated.

O Lord, thy mercy is in heaven, and thy truth reacheth even to the clouds.

Thy justice is as the mountains of God, thy judgments are a great deep.

Men and beasts thou wilt preserve, O Lord: O how hast thou multiplied thy mercy, O God!

But the children of men shall put their trust under the covert of thy wings.

They shall be inebriated with the plenty of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the torrent of thy pleasure.

For with thee is the fountain of life; and in thy light we shall see light.

Extend thy mercy to them that know thee, and thy justice to them that are right in heart.

Let not the foot of pride come to me, and let not the hand of the sinner move me.

There the workers of iniquity are fallen, they are cast out, and could not stand.

TODAY’S PSALM (PSALM 35)

R. In you, Lord, is the source of life.

1. Your love, Lord, reaches to heaven;
your truth to the skies.
Your justice is like God’s mountain,
your judgement like the deep. (R.)

2. O Lord, how precious is your love.
My God, the sons of men
find refuge in the shelter of your wings.
They feast on the riches of your house;
they drink from the stream of your delight. (R.)

3. In you is the source of life
and in your light we see light.
Keep on loving those who know you,
doing justice for upright hearts. (R.)
