Ant. Regem, cui ómnia vivunt, * Veníte adorémus.
Quóniam Deus magnus Dóminus, et Rex magnus super omnes deos, quóniam non repéllet Dóminus plebem suam: quia in manu eius sunt omnes fines terræ, et altitúdines móntium ipse cónspicit.
Ant. Veníte adorémus.
Quóniam ipsíus est mare, et ipse fecit illud, et áridam fundavérunt manus eius (genuflectitur) veníte, adorémus, et procidámus ante Deum: plorémus coram Dómino, qui fecit nos, quia ipse est Dóminus, Deus noster; nos autem pópulus eius, et oves páscuæ eius.
Ant. Regem, cui ómnia vivunt, * Veníte adorémus.

Ant. Veníte adorémus.
Quadragínta annis próximus fui generatióni huic, et dixi; Semper hi errant corde, ipsi vero non cognovérunt vias meas: quibus iurávi in ira mea; Si introíbunt in réquiem meam.

Ant. Unto the Eternal King all live. * O come, let us worship Him.

Come let us praise the Lord with joy: let us joyfully sing to God our saviour. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.
Ant. Unto the Eternal King all live. * O come, let us worship Him.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. For the Lord will not cast off his people: for in his hand are all the ends of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
Ant. O come, let us worship Him.
For the sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. (genuflect) Come let us adore and fall down: and weep before the Lord that made us: For he is the Lord our God: and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
Ant. Unto the Eternal King all live. * O come, let us worship Him.
Today if you shall hear his voice, harden not your hearts: As in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness: where your fathers tempted me, they proved me, and saw my works.
Ant. O come, let us worship Him.
Forty years long was I offended with that generation, and I said: These always err in heart. And these men have not known my ways: so I swore in my wrath that they shall not enter into my rest.
Ant. Unto the Eternal King all live. * O come, let us worship Him.
V. Eternal rest * grant unto them, O Lord.
R. And let perpetual light * shine upon them.
Ant. O come, let us worship Him.

Iob 7:16-21
16 Parce mihi, Dómine; nihil enim sunt dies mei.
17 Quid est homo, quia magníficas eum? aut quid appónis erga eum cor tuum?
18 Vísitas eum dilúculo, et súbito probas illum.
19 Usquéquo non parcis mihi, nec dimíttis me, ut glútiam salívam meam?
20 Peccávi, quid fáciam tibi, o custos hóminum? quare posuísti me contrárium tibi, et factus sum mihimetipsi gravis?
21 Cur non tollis peccátum meum, et quare non aufers iniquitátem meam? Ecce nunc in púlvere dórmiam: et, si mane me quæsíeris, non subsistam.

R. Credo quod Redémptor meus vivit, et in novíssimo die de terra surrectúrus sum,
* Et in carne mea vidébo Deum Salvatórem meum.

Reading 1
Job 7:16-21
16 Spare me, for my days are nothing.
17 What is a man that thou shouldst magnify him? or why dost thou set thy heart upon him?
18 Thou visitest him early in the morning, and thou provest him suddenly.
19 How long wilt thou not spare me, nor suffer me to swallow down my spittle?
20 I have sinned: what shall I do to thee, O keeper of men? why hast thou set me opposite to thee, and I am become burdensome to myself?
21 Why dost thou not remove my sin, and why dost thou not take away my iniquity? Behold now I shall sleep in the dust: and if thou seek me in the morning, I shall not be.

R. I believe that my Redeemer liveth, and that I shall stand up from the earth at the latter day,
* And in my flesh shall I see God my Saviour.

Iob 10:1-7
1 Tædet ánimam meam vitæ meæ; dimíttam advérsum me elóquium meum: loquar in amaritúdine ánimæ meæ.
2 Dicam Deo: Noli me condemnáre; índica mihi cur me ita iúdices.
3 Numquid bonum tibi vidétur, si calumniéris me, et ópprimas me opus mánuum tuárum, et consílium impiórum ádiuves?
4 Numquid óculi cárnei tibi sunt? aut sicut videt homo, et tu vidébis?
5 Numquid sicut dies hóminis dies tui, et anni tui sicut humána sunt témpora,
6 Ut quæras iniquitátem meam, et peccátum meum scrutéris,
7 Et scias quia nihil ímpium fécerim, cum sit nemo qui de manu tua possit erúere?

R. Qui Lázarum resuscitásti a monuménto fœ́tidum,
* Tu eis, Dómine, dona réquiem, et locum indulgéntiæ.
V. Qui ventúrus es iudicáre vivos et mórtuos, et sǽculum per ignem.
R. Tu eis, Dómine, dona réquiem, et locum indulgéntiæ.

Reading 2
Job 10:1-7
1 My soul is weary of my life, I will let go my speech against myself, I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
2 I will say to God: Do not condemn me: tell me why thou judgest me so.
3 Doth it seem good to thee that thou shouldst calumniate me, and oppress me, the work of thy own hands, and help the counsel of the wicked?
4 Hast thou eyes of flesh: or, shalt thou see as man seeth?
5 Are thy days as the days of man, and are thy years as the times of men:
6 That thou shouldst inquire after my iniquity, and search after my sin?
7 And shouldst know that I have done no wicked thing, whereas there is no man that can deliver out of thy hand.

R. Thou Who didst call up Lazarus from the grave after that he had begun to stink
* Do Thou, O Lord, grant them rest and a place of forgiveness.

9 Meménto, quæso, quod sicut lutum féceris me, et in púlverem redúces me.
10 Nonne sicut lac mulsísti me, et sicut cáseum me coagulásti?
11 Pelle et cárnibus vestísti me; óssibus et nervis compegísti me.
12 Vitam et misericórdiam tribuísti mihi, et visitátio tua custodívit spíritum meum.

R. Dómine, quando véneris iudicáre terram, ubi me abscóndam a vultu iræ tuæ?
* Quia peccávi nimis in vita mea.
V. Commíssa mea pavésco, et ante te erubésco: dum véneris iudicáre, noli me condemnáre.

Reading 3
Job 10:8-12
8 Thy hands have made me, and fashioned me wholly round about, and dost thou thus cast me down headlong on a sudden?
9 Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay, and thou wilt bring me into dust again.
10 Hast thou not milked me as milk, and curdled me like cheese?
11 Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh: thou hast put me together with bones and sinews:
12 Thou hast granted me life and mercy, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit.

R. Lord, when Thou comest to judge the earth, where shall I hide myself from the face of thy wrath?
* For I have sinned greatly in my life.

26:1 Dóminus illuminátio mea, et salus mea, * quem timébo?
26:1 Dóminus protéctor vitæ meæ, * a quo trepidábo?
26:2 Dum apprópiant super me nocéntes, * ut edant carnes meas:

26:3 Si consístant advérsum me castra, * non timébit cor meum.
26:3 Si exsúrgat advérsum me prǽlium, * in hoc ego sperábo.

26:4 That I may see the delight of the Lord, * and may visit his temple.
26:5 For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; * in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle.
26:6 He hath exalted me upon a rock: * and now he hath lifted up my head above my enemies.
26:6 I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: * I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord.
26:7 Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee: * have mercy on me and hear me.
26:8 My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: * thy face, O Lord, will I still seek.
26:9 Turn not away thy face from me; * decline not in thy wrath from thy servant.
26:9 Be thou my helper, * forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour.
26:10 For my father and my mother have left me: * but the Lord hath taken me up.
26:11 Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, * and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies.

22 Voca me, et ego respondébo tibi: aut certe loquar, et tu respónde mihi.
23 Quantas hábeo iniquitátes et peccáta? scélera mea et delícta osténde mihi.
24 Cur fáciem tuam abscóndis, et arbitráris me inimícum tuum?
25 Contra fólium, quod vento rápitur, osténdis poténtiam tuam, et stípulam siccam perséqueris:
26 Scribis enim contra me amaritúdines, et consúmere me vis peccátis adolescéntiæ meæ.
27 Posuísti in nervo pedem meum, et observásti omnes sémitas meas, et vestígia pedum meórum considerásti:
28 Qui quasi putrédo consuméndus sum, et quasi vestiméntum quod coméditur a tínea.

R. Meménto mei, Deus, quia ventus est vita mea,
* Nec aspíciat me visus hóminis.
V. De profúndis clamávi ad te, Dómine: Dómine, exáudi vocem meam.
R. Nec aspíciat me visus hóminis.
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Job 13:22-28
22 Call me, and I will answer thee: or else I will speak, and do thou answer me.
23 How many are my iniquities and sins? make me know my crimes and offences.
24 Why hidest thou thy face, and thinkest me thy enemy?
25 Against a leaf, that is carried away with the wind, thou showest thy power, and thou pursuest a dry straw.
26 For thou writest bitter things against me, and wilt consume me for the sins of my youth.
27 Thou hast put my feet in the stocks, and hast observed all my paths, and hast considered the steps of my feet:
28 Who am to be consumed as rottenness, and as a garment that is moth-eaten.

R. Remember, O God, that my life is wind.
* The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more.
V. Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O Lord! Lord, hear my voice.
R. The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more.

3 Et dignum ducis super huiuscémodi aperíre óculos tuos, et addúcere eum tecum in iudícium?
4 Quis potest fácere mundum de immúndo concéptum sémine? Nonne tu qui solus es?
5 Breves dies hóminis sunt: númerus ménsium eius apud te est: constituísti términos eius, qui præteríri non póterunt.
6 Recéde páululum ab eo, ut quiéscat, donec optáta véniat, sicut mercenárii, dies eius.

R. Hei mihi, Dómine, quia peccávi nimis in vita mea: Quid fáciam, miser? ubi fugiam, nisi ad te, Deus meus?
* Miserére mei, dum véneris in novíssimo die.
V. Anima mea turbáta est valde, sed tu, Dómine, succurre ei.
R. Miserére mei, dum véneris in novíssimo die.

Job 14:1-6
1 Man born of a woman, living for a short time, is filled with many miseries.
2 Who cometh forth like a flower, and is destroyed, and fleeth as a shadow, and never continueth in the same state.
3 And dost thou think it meet to open thy eyes upon such an one, and to bring him into judgment with thee?
4 Who can make him clean that is conceived of unclean seed? is it not thou who only art?
5 The days of man are short, and the number of his months is with thee: thou hast appointed his bounds which cannot be passed.
6 Depart a little from him, that he may rest, until his wished for day come, as that of the hireling

R. Woe is me, O Lord! for I have sinned greatly in my life. I am smitten what shall I do? Whither shall I flee but unto thee, O my God?
* Have mercy upon me, when Thou comest at the latter day.

15 Thou shalt call me, and I will answer thee: to the work of thy hands thou shalt reach out thy right hand.
16 Thou indeed hast numbered my steps, but spare my sins.

R. Hold not my sins in remembrance, O Lord,

39:11 Non abscóndi misericórdiam tuam et veritátem tuam * a concílio multo.

14 Putrédini dixi: Pater meus es; Mater mea, et soror mea, vérmibus.
15 Ubi est ergo nunc præstolátio mea? et patiéntiam meam quis consíderat?

R. Peccántem me quotídie, et non me pœniténtem, timor mórtis contúrbat me:
* Quia in inférno nulla est redemptio, miserére mei, Deus, et salva me.
V. Deus, in nómine tuo salvum me fac, et in virtúte tua líbera me.
R. Quia in inférno nulla est redemptio, miserére mei, Deus, et salva me.
Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation: But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Job 17:1-3; 17:11-15
1 My spirit shall be wasted, my days shall be shortened, and only the grave remaineth for me.
2 I have not sinned, and my eye abideth in bitterness.
3 Deliver me O Lord, and set me beside thee, and let any man's hand fight against me.
11 My days have passed away, my thoughts are dissipated, tormenting my heart.
12 They have turned night into day, and after darkness I hope for light again.
13 If I wait hell is my house, and I have made my bed in darkness.
14 If I have said to rottenness: thou art my father; to worms, my mother and my sister.
15 Where is now then my expectation, and who considereth my patience?

R. Forasmuch as I sin daily, and repent not, the fear of death troubleth me.
* O God, have mercy upon me, and save me, for in hell there is no redemption.
V. Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me in thy strength.
R. O God, have mercy upon me, and save me, for in hell there is no redemption.

Iob 19:20-27
20 Pelli meæ, consúmptis cárnibus, adhǽsit os meum, et derelícta sunt tantúmmodo lábia circa dentes meos.
21 Miserémini mei, miserémini mei saltem vos, amíci mei, quia manus Dómini tétigit me.
22 Quare persequímini me sicut Deus, et cárnibus meis saturámini?
23 Quis mihi tríbuat ut scribántur sermónes mei? quis mihi det ut exaréntur in libro
24 Stylo férreo et plumbi lámina, vel celte sculpántur in sílice?
25 Scio enim quod redémptor meus vivit, et in novíssimo die de terra surrectúrus sum:
26 Et rursum circúmdabor pelle mea, et in carne mea vidébo Deum meum:
27 Quem visúrus sum ego ipse, et óculi mei conspectúri sunt, et non álius: repósita est hæc spes mea in sinu meo.

R. Dómine, secúndum actum meum noli me iudicáre: nihil dignum in conspéctu tuo egi; ídeo déprecor maiestátem tuam,
* Ut tu, Deus, deleas iniquitátem meam.
V. Amplius lava me, Dómine, ab iniustítia mea, et a delícto meo munda me.
R. Ut tu, Deus, deleas iniquitátem meam.

Job 19:20-27
20 The flesh being consumed. My bone hath cleaved to my skin, and nothing but lips are left about my teeth.
21 Have pity on me, have pity on me, at least you my friends, because the hand of the Lord hath touched me.
22 Why do you persecute me as God, and glut yourselves with my flesh?
23 Who will grant me that my words may be written? Who will grant me that they may be marked down in a book?
24 With an iron pen and in a plate of lead, or else be graven with an instrument in flint stone.
25 For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and in the last day I shall rise out of the earth.
26 And I shall be clothed again with my skin, and in my flesh I will see my God.
27 Whom I myself shall see, and my eyes shall behold, and not another: this my hope is laid up in my bosom.

R. O Lord, judge me not according to my works; for I have done nothing that can be counted in respect of thee. I beseech thy majesty therefore, that thou wouldest
* Blot out my transgressions, O God.
V. Lord, wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
R. Blot out my transgressions, O God.

Iob 10:18-22
18 Quare de vulva eduxísti me? qui útinam consúmptus essem, ne óculus me vidéret.
19 Fuíssem quasi non essem, de útero translátus ad túmulum.
20 Numquid non páucitas diérum meórum finiétur brevi? dimítte ergo me, ut plangam páululum dolórem meum,
21 ántequam vadam, et non revértar, ad terram tenebrósam, et opértam mortis calígine:
22 Terram misériæ et tenebrárum, Iob ubi umbra mortis et nullus ordo, sed sempitérnus horror inhábitat.

R. Líbera me, Dómine, de morte ætérna in die illa treménda,
* Quando cæli movéndi sunt et terra, * Dum véneris iudicáre sǽculum per ignem.
V. Tremens factus sum ego et timeo, dum discússio venérit atque ventúra ira.
R. Quando cæli movéndi sunt et terra.
V. Dies illa, dies iræ, calamitátis et misériæ, dies magna et amára valde.
R. Dum venéris iudicáre sǽculum per ignem.

R. Et lux perpétua * lúceat eis.

Reading 9
Job 10:18-22
18 Why didst thou bring me forth out of the womb: O that I had been consumed that eye might not see me!
19 I should have been as if I had not been, carried from the womb to the grave.
20 Shall not the fewness of my days be ended shortly? suffer me, therefore, that I may lament my sorrow a little:
21 Before I go, and return no more, to a land that is dark and covered with the mist of death:
22 A land of misery and darkness, where the shadow of death, and no order, but everlasting horror dwelleth.

R. Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death in that awful day;
* when the heavens and the earth shall be shaken, and Thou shalt come to judge the world by fire.
V. Quaking and dread take hold upon me, when I look for the coming of the trial and the wrath to come.
R. When the heavens and the earth shall be shaken.
V. That day is a day of wrath, of wasteness and desolation, a great day and exceeding bitter.
R. When Thou shalt come to judge the world by fire.
V. Eternal rest * grant unto them, O Lord.
R. And let perpetual light * shine upon them.
