PSALM 37 – DOMINE, NE IN FURORE

PSALM 37 – DOMINE, NE IN FURORE

A PRAYER OF A PENITENT FOR THE REMISSION OF HIS SINS. THE THIRD PENITENTIAL PSALM.

A psalm for David, for a remembrance of the sabbath.

Rebuke me not, O Lord, in thy iindignation; nor chastise me in thy wrath.

For thy arrows are fastened in me: and thy hand hath been strong upon me.

There is no health in my flesh, because of thy wrath: there is no peace for my bones, because of my sins.

For my iniquities are gone over my head: and as a heavy burden are become heavy upon me.

My sores are putrified and corrupted, because of my foolishness.

I am become a miserable, and am bowed down even to the end: I walked sorrowful all day long.

For my loins are filled with illusions; and there is no health in my flesh.

I am afflicted and humbled exceedingly: I roared with the groaning of my heart.

Lord, all my desire is before thee, and my groaning is not hidden from thee.

My heart is troubled, my strength hath left me, and the light of my eyes itself is not with me.

My friends and my neighbours have drawn near, and stood against me.

And they that were near me stood afar off:

And they that sought my soul used violence.

And they that sought evils to me spoke vain things, and studied deceits all the day long.

But I, as a deaf man, heard not: and as a dumb man not opening his mouth.

And I became as a man that heareth not: and that hath no reproofs in his mouth.

For in thee, O Lord, have I hoped: thou wilt hear me, O Lord my God.

For I said: Lest at any time my enemies rejoice over me: and whilst my feet are moved, they speak great things against me.

For I am ready for scourges: and my sorrow is continually before me.

For I will declare my iniquity: and I will think for my sin.

But my enemies live, and are stronger than I: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

They that render evil for good, have detracted me, because I followed goodness.

Forsake me not, O Lord my God: do not thou depart from me.

Attend unto my help, O Lord, the God of my salvation.

(Week 20 of the year: Tuesday)

R. It is the Lord who deals death and life.

1. I should crush them to dust, I said,
I should wipe out their memory among men,
did I not fear the boasting of the enemy.
But let not their foes be mistaken! (R.)

2. Let them not say: Our own power wins the victory,
the Lord plays no part in this.
What a nation of short sight it is;
in them there is no understanding. (R.)

3. How else could one man rout a thousand,
how could two put ten thousand to flight,
were it not that their Rock has sold them,
that the Lord has delivered them up? (R.)

4. For it is close, the day of their ruin;
their doom comes at speed.
For the Lord will see his people righted,
he will take pity on his servants. (R.)

ALLELUIA

Alleluia, alleluia!
Teach me your paths, my God,
make me walk in your truth.
Alleluia!

R. You forget the God who fathered you.

“and see what becomes of them.
For they are a deceitful brood,
children with no loyalty in them. (R.)

3. “They have roused me to jealousy with what is no god,
they have angered me with their beings of nothing;
I, Then, will rouse them to jealousy with what is no people,
I will anger them with an empty-headed nation.” (R.)

Alleluia, alleluia!
Through the Good News God called us
to share the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

who even at night directs my heart.
I keep the Lord ever in my sight:
since he is at my right hand, I shall stand firm. (R.)

even my body shall rest in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead,
nor let your beloved know decay. (R.)
