I've been checking out the Episcopal Daily Office over at the Mission St. Clare website. I came upon this reading for today, May 3rd, which I thought I'd share with you. May God bless the reading of His Word:
|Daleth Adhaesit pavimento|
|25||My soul cleaves to the dust; *|
give me life according to your word.
|26||I have confessed my ways, and you answered me; *|
instruct me in your statutes.
|27||Make me understand the way of your commandments, *|
that I may meditate on your marvelous works.
|28||My soul melts away for sorrow; *|
strengthen me according to your word.
|29||Take from me the way of lying; *|
let me find grace through your law.
|30||I have chosen the way of faithfulness; *|
I have set your judgments before me.
|31||I hold fast to your decrees; *|
O LORD, let me not be put to shame.
|32||I will run the way of your commandments, *|
for you have set my heart at liberty.
|He Legem pone|
|33||Teach me, O LORD, the way of your statutes, *|
and I shall keep it to the end.
|34||Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law; *|
I shall keep it with all my heart.
|35||Make me go in the path of your commandments, *|
for that is my desire.
|36||Incline my heart to your decrees *|
and not to unjust gain.
|37||Turn my eyes from watching what is worthless; *|
give me life in your ways.
|38||Fulfill your promise to your servant, *|
which you make to those who fear you.
|39||Turn away the reproach which I dread, *|
because your judgments are good.
|40||Behold, I long for your commandments; *|
in your righteousness preserve my life.
|Waw Et veniat super me|
|41||Let your loving-kindness come to me, O LORD, *|
and your salvation, according to your promise.
|42||Then shall I have a word for those who taunt me, *|
because I trust in your words.
|43||Do not take the word of truth out of my mouth, *|
for my hope is in your judgments.
|44||I shall continue to keep your law; *|
I shall keep it for ever and ever.
|45||I will walk at liberty, *|
because I study your commandments.
|46||I will tell of your decrees before kings *|
and will not be ashamed.
|47||I delight in your commandments, *|
which I have always loved.
|48||I will lift up my hands to your commandments, *|
and I will meditate on your statutes.
