Iubilémus Deo, salutári nostro: præoccupémus fáciem eius in confessióne, et in psalmis iubilémus ei.
Ant. Veníte, * Exsultémus Dómino.
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. Exsultémus Dómino.
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. Veníte, * Exsultémus Dómino.
Hodie, si vocem eius audieritis, nolite obdurare corda vestra, sicut in exacerbatione secundum diem tentationis in deserto: ubi tentaverunt me patres vestri, probaverunt et viderunt opera mea.

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.

Invitatory {Antiphon from the Psalter for the day of the week}
Ant. Come * Let us glorify the Lord.
Ant. Come * Let us glorify the Lord.
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. Come * Let us glorify the Lord.
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. Let us glorify the Lord.
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. Come * Let us glorify the Lord.
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. Let us glorify the Lord.
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. Come * Let us glorify the Lord.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Ant. Let us glorify the Lord.
Ant. Come * Let us glorify the Lord.
Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Somno reféctis, artubus,
Spreto cubíli, súrgimus:
Nobis, Pater, canéntibus
Adésse te depóscimus.

Te lingua primum cóncinat,
Te mentis ardor ámbiat:
Ut áctuum sequéntium
Tu, Sancte, sis exórdium.

Cedant ténebræ lúmini,
Et nox diúrno síderi,
Ut culpa, quam nox íntulit,
Lucis labáscat múnere.

Precámur iídem súpplices,
Noxas ut omnes ámputes,
Et ore te canéntium
Laudéris omni témpore.

* Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Unice,
Cum Spíritu Paráclito
Regnans per omne sǽculum.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Our limbs refreshed with slumber now,
And sloth cast off, in prayer we bow;
And while we sing thy praises dear,
O Father, be thou present here.

To thee our earliest morning song,
To thee our hearts full powers belong;
And thou, O Holy One, prevent
Each following action and intent.

As shades at morning flee away,
And night before the star of day;
So each transgression of the night
Be purged by thee, celestial Light!

Cut off, we pray thee, each offense,
And every lust of thought and sense:
That by their lips who thee adore
Thou mayst be praised forevermore.

Grant this, O Father ever One
With Christ, thy sole-begotten Son,
And Holy Ghost, whom all adore,
Reigning and blest forevermore.
Amen.

Ant. Dóminus de cælo * prospéxit super fílios hóminum.
Psalmus 13 [1]
13:1 Dixit insípiens in corde suo: * non est Deus.
13:2 Corrúpti sunt, et abominábiles facti sunt in stúdiis suis: * non est qui fáciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
13:3 Dóminus de cælo prospéxit super fílios hóminum, * ut vídeat si est intéllegens, aut requírens Deum.
13:4 Omnes declinavérunt, simul inútiles facti sunt: * non est qui fáciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
13:5 Sepúlcrum patens est guttur eórum: linguis suis dolóse agébant * venénum áspidum sub lábiis eórum.
13:6 Quorum os maledictióne et amaritúdine plenum est: * velóces pedes eórum ad effundéndum sánguinem.
13:7 Contrítio et infelícitas in viis eórum, et viam pacis non cognovérunt: * non est timor Dei ante óculos eórum.
13:8 Nonne cognóscent omnes qui operántur iniquitátem, * qui dévorant plebem meam sicut escam panis?
13:9 Dóminum non invocavérunt, * illic trepidavérunt timóre, ubi non erat timor.
13:10 Quóniam Dóminus in generatióne iusta est, consílium ínopis confudístis: * quóniam Dóminus spes eius est.
13:11 Quis dabit ex Sion salutáre Israël? * cum avérterit Dóminus captivitátem plebis suæ, exsultábit Iacob, et lætábitur Israël.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. The Lord hath looked down from heaven * upon the children of men.
Psalm 13 [1]
13:1 The fool hath said in his heart: * there is no God.
13:2 They are corrupt, and are become abominable in their ways: * there is none that doth good, no not one.
13:3 The Lord hath looked down from heaven upon the children of men, * to see if there be any that understand and seek God.
13:4 They are all gone aside, they are become unprofitable together: * there is none that doth good: no not one.
13:5 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they acted deceitfully: * the poison of asps is under their lips.
13:6 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; * their feet are swift to shed blood.
13:7 Destruction and unhappiness in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known: * there is no fear of God before their eyes.
13:8 Shall not all they know that work iniquity, * who devour my people as they eat bread?
13:9 They have not called upon the Lord: * there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear.
13:10 For the Lord is in the just generation: you have confounded the counsel of the poor man; * but the Lord is his hope.
13:11 Who shall give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? * when the Lord shall have turned away the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Ant. The Lord hath looked down from heaven * upon the children of men.
Ant. Qui operátur iustítiam * requiéscet in monte sancto tuo, Dómine.
Psalmus 14 [2]
14:1 Dómine, quis habitábit in tabernáculo tuo? * aut quis requiéscet in monte sancto tuo?
14:2 Qui ingréditur sine mácula, * et operátur iustítiam:
14:3 Qui lóquitur veritátem in corde suo, * qui non egit dolum in lingua sua:
14:4 Nec fecit próximo suo malum, * et oppróbrium non accépit advérsus próximos suos.
14:5 Ad níhilum dedúctus est in conspéctu eius malígnus: * timéntes autem Dóminum gloríficat:
14:6 Qui iurat próximo suo, et non décipit, * qui pecúniam suam non dedit ad usúram, et múnera super innocéntem non accépit.
14:7 Qui facit hæc: * non movébitur in ætérnum.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.

Ant. Qui operátur iustítiam * requiéscet in monte sancto tuo, Dómine.
Ant. He who worketh justice * may rest on thy holy mountain, O Lord.
Psalm 14 [2]
14:1 Lord, who shall dwell in thy tabernacle? * or who shall rest in thy holy hill?
14:2 He that walketh without blemish, * and worketh justice:
14:3 He that speaketh truth in his heart, * who hath not used deceit in his tongue:
14:4 Nor hath done evil to his neighbour: * nor taken up a reproach against his neighbours.
14:5 In his sight the malignant is brought to nothing: * but he glorifieth them that fear the Lord:
14:6 He that sweareth to his neighbour, and deceiveth not; * He that hath not put out his money to usury, nor taken bribes against the innocent:
14:7 He that doth these things, * shall not be moved for ever.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

Ant. Inclína, Dómine, * aurem tuam mihi, et exáudi verba mea.
Psalmus 16 [3]
16:1 Exáudi, Dómine, iustítiam meam: * inténde deprecatiónem meam.
16:2 Áuribus pércipe oratiónem meam, * non in lábiis dolósis.
16:3 De vultu tuo iudícium meum pródeat: * óculi tui vídeant æquitátes.
16:4 Probásti cor meum, et visitásti nocte: * igne me examinásti, et non est invénta in me iníquitas.
16:5 Ut non loquátur os meum ópera hóminum: * propter verba labiórum tuórum ego custodívi vias duras.
16:6 Pérfice gressus meos in sémitis tuis: * ut non moveántur vestígia mea.
16:7 Ego clamávi, quóniam exaudísti me, Deus: * inclína aurem tuam mihi, et exáudi verba mea.
16:8 Mirífica misericórdias tuas, * qui salvos facis sperántes in te.
16:9 A resisténtibus déxteræ tuæ custódi me, * ut pupíllam óculi.
16:10 Sub umbra alárum tuárum prótege me: * a fácie impiórum qui me afflixérunt.
16:11 Inimíci mei ánimam meam circumdedérunt, ádipem suum conclusérunt: * os eórum locútum est supérbiam.
16:12 Proiiciéntes me nunc circumdedérunt me: * óculos suos statuérunt declináre in terram.
16:13 Suscepérunt me sicut leo parátus ad prædam: * et sicut cátulus leónis hábitans in ábditis.
16:14 Exsúrge, Dómine, prævéni eum, et supplánta eum: * éripe ánimam meam ab ímpio, frámeam tuam ab inimícis manus tuæ.
16:15 Dómine, a paucis de terra dívide eos in vita eórum: * de abscónditis tuis adimplétus est venter eórum.
16:16 Saturáti sunt fíliis: * et dimisérunt relíquias suas párvulis suis.
16:17 Ego autem in iustítia apparébo conspéctui tuo: * satiábor cum apparúerit glória tua.

Psalm 16 [3]
16:1 Hear, O Lord, my justice: * attend to my supplication.
16:2 Give ear unto my prayer, * which proceedeth not from deceitful lips.
16:3 Let my judgment come forth from thy countenance: * let thy eyes behold the things that are equitable.
16:4 Thou hast proved my heart, and visited it by night, * thou hast tried me by fire: and iniquity hath not been found in me.
16:5 That my mouth may not speak the works of men: * for the sake of the words of thy lips, I have kept hard ways.
16:6 Perfect thou my goings in thy paths: * that my footsteps be not moved.
16:7 I have cried to thee, for thou, O God, hast heard me: * O incline thy ear unto me, and hear my words.
16:8 Shew forth thy wonderful mercies; * thou who savest them that trust in thee.
16:9 From them that resist thy right hand keep me, * as the apple of thy eye.
16:10 Protect me under the shadow of thy wings. * from the face of the wicked who have afflicted me.
16:11 My enemies have surrounded my soul: They have shut up their fat: * their mouth hath spoken proudly.
16:12 They have cast me forth, and now they have surrounded me: * they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth.
16:13 They have taken me, as a lion prepared for the prey; * and as a young lion dwelling in secret places.
16:14 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him and supplant him; * deliver my soul from the wicked one; thy sword from the enemies of thy hand.
16:15 O Lord, divide them from the few of the earth in their life: * their belly is filled from thy hidden stores.
16:16 They are full of children: * and they have left to their little ones the rest of their substance.
16:17 But as for me, I will appear before thy sight in justice: * I shall be satisfied when thy glory shall appear.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

17:3 Protéctor meus, et cornu salútis meæ, * et suscéptor meus.

17:5 Circumdedérunt me dolóres mortis: * et torréntes iniquitátis conturbavérunt me.
17:6 Dolóres inférni circumdedérunt me: * præoccupavérunt me láquei mortis.
17:7 In tribulatióne mea invocávi Dóminum, * et ad Deum meum clamávi.
17:8 Et exaudívit de templo sancto suo vocem meam: * et clamor meus in conspéctu eius, introívit in aures eius.
17:9 Commóta est, et contrémuit terra: * fundaménta móntium conturbáta sunt, et commóta sunt, quóniam irátus est eis.
17:10 Ascéndit fumus in ira eius: et ignis a fácie eius exársit: * carbónes succénsi sunt ab eo.
17:11 Inclinávit cælos, et descéndit: * et calígo sub pédibus eius.
17:12 Et ascéndit super Chérubim, et volávit: * volávit super pennas ventórum.
17:13 Et pósuit ténebras latíbulum suum, in circúitu eius tabernáculum eius: * tenebrósa aqua in núbibus áëris.
17:14 Præ fulgóre in conspéctu eius nubes transiérunt, * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:15 Et intónuit de cælo Dóminus, et Altíssimus dedit vocem suam: * grando et carbónes ignis.
17:16 Et misit sagíttas suas, et dissipávit eos: * fúlgura multiplicávit, et conturbávit eos.
17:16 Et apparuérunt fontes aquárum, * et reveláta sunt fundaménta orbis terrárum:
17:16 Ab increpatióne tua, Dómine, * ab inspiratióne spíritus iræ tuæ.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.

17:3 My protector, and the horn of my salvation, * and my support.
17:4 Praising, I will call upon the Lord: * and I shall be saved from my enemies.
17:5 The sorrows of death surrounded me: * and the torrents of iniquity troubled me.
17:6 The sorrows of hell encompassed me: * and the snares of death prevented me.
17:7 In my affliction I called upon the Lord, * and I cried to my God:
17:8 And he heard my voice from his holy temple: * and my cry before him came into his ears.
17:9 The earth shook and trembled: * the foundations of the mountains were troubled and were moved, because he was angry with them.
17:10 There went up a smoke in his wrath: and a fire flamed from his face: * coals were kindled by it.
17:11 He bowed the heavens, and came down, * and darkness was under his feet.
17:12 And he ascended upon the cherubim, and he flew; * he flew upon the wings of the winds.
17:13 And he made darkness his covert, his pavilion round about him: * dark waters in the clouds of the air.
17:14 At the brightness that was before him the clouds passed, * hail and coals of fire.
17:15 And the Lord thundered from heaven, * and the Highest gave his voice: * hail and coals of fire.
17:16 And he sent forth his arrows, and he scattered them: * he multiplied lightnings, and troubled them.
17:16 Then the fountains of waters appeared, * and the foundations of the world were discovered:
17:16 At thy rebuke, O Lord, * at the blast of the spirit of thy wrath.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

17:28 Quóniam tu pópulum húmilem salvum fácies: * et óculos superbórum humiliábis.
17:29 Quóniam tu illúminas lucérnam meam, Dómine: * Deus meus, illúmina ténebras meas.
17:30 Quóniam in te erípiar a tentatióne, * et in Deo meo transgrédiar murum.
17:31 Deus meus, impollúta via eius: elóquia Dómini igne examináta: * protéctor est ómnium sperántium in se.
17:32 Quóniam quis Deus præter Dóminum? * aut quis Deus præter Deum nostrum?
17:33 Deus, qui præcínxit me virtúte: * et pósuit immaculátam viam meam.
17:34 Qui perfécit pedes meos tamquam cervórum, * et super excélsa státuens me.

17:24 And I shall be spotless with him: * and shall keep myself from my iniquity.
17:25 And the Lord will reward me according to my justice: * and according to the cleanness of my hands before his eyes.
17:26 With the holy thou wilt be holy; * and with the innocent man thou wilt be innocent:

17:28 For thou wilt save the humble people; * but wilt bring down the eyes of the proud.
17:29 For thou lightest my lamp, O Lord: * O my God, enlighten my darkness.
17:30 For by thee I shall be delivered from temptation; * and through my God I shall go over a wall.
17:31 As for my God, his way is undefiled: the words of the Lord are fire-tried: * he is the protector of all that trust in him.

17:38 Dilatásti gressus meos subtus me: * et non sunt infirmáta vestígia mea:
17:39 Pérsequar inimícos meos et comprehéndam illos: * et non convértar, donec defíciant.

17:37 And thy discipline hath corrected me unto the end: * and thy discipline, the same shall teach me.
17:38 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me; * and my feet are not weakened.
17:39 I will pursue after my enemies, and overtake them: * and I will not turn again till they are consumed.
17:40 I will break them, and they shall not be able to stand: * they shall fall under my feet.
17:41 And thou hast girded me with strength unto battle; * and hast subdued under me them that rose up against me.
17:42 And thou hast made my enemies turn their back upon me, * and hast destroyed them that hated me.
17:43 They cried, but there was none to save them, to the Lord: * but he heard them not.
17:44 And I shall beat them as small as the dust before the wind; * I shall bring them to nought, like the dirt in the streets.
17:45 Thou wilt deliver me from the contradictions of the people; * thou wilt make me head of the Gentiles.
17:46 A people which I knew not, hath served me: * at the hearing of the ear they have obeyed me.
17:47 The children that are strangers have lied to me, * strange children have faded away, and have halted from their paths.
17:48 The Lord liveth, and blessed be my God, * and let the God of my salvation be exalted.
17:49 O God, who avengest me, and subduest the people under me, * my deliverer from my enraged enemies.
17:50 And thou wilt lift me up above them that rise up against me: * from the unjust man thou wilt deliver me.
17:51 Therefore will I give glory to thee, O Lord, among the nations, * and I will sing a psalm to thy name.

2 Sam 13:22-25
22 Porro non est locútus Absalom ad Amnon nec malum nec bonum; óderat enim Absalom Amnon, eo quod violasset Thamar sorórem suam.
23 Factum est autem post tempus biennii ut tonderéntur oves Absalom in Baálhasor, quæ est iuxta Ephraim; et vocávit Absalom omnes fílios regis,
24 Venitque ad regem et ait ad eum: Ecce tondéntur oves servi tui; véniat, oro, rex cum servis suis ad servum suum.
25 Dixitque rex ad Absalom: Noli, fili mi, noli rogare ut veniámus omnes et gravémus te. Cum autem cógeret eum, et noluísset ire, benedíxit ei.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Recordáre, Dómine, testaménti tui, et dic Angelo percutiénti: Cesset iam manus tua,
* Ut non desolétur terra, et ne perdas omnem ánimam vivam.
V. Ego sum qui peccávi, ego qui iníque egi: isti qui oves sunt, quid fecérunt? Avertátur, óbsecro, furor tuus, Dómine, a pópulo tuo.
R. Ut non desolétur terra, et ne perdas omnem ánimam vivam.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.

Lesson from the second book of Samuel
2 Sam 13:22-25
22 But Absalom spoke not to Amnon neither good nor evil: for Absalom hated Amnon because he had ravished his sister Thamar.
23 And it came to pass after two years, that the sheep of Absalom were shorn in Baalhasor, which is near Ephraim: and Absalom invited all the king's sons:
24 And he came to the king, and said to him: Behold thy servant's sheep are shorn. Let the king, I pray, with his servants come to his servant.
25 And the king said to Absalom: Nay, my son, do not ask that we should all come, and be chargeable to thee. And when he pressed him, and he would not go, he blessed him.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Remember, O Lord, thy covenant, and say unto the destroying Angel: Stay now thine hand;
* That the land be not utterly laid waste, and that thou destroy not every living soul.
V. Even I it is that have sinned, and done evil indeed; but these sheep, what have they done? Let thine anger, I pray thee, O Lord, be turned away from thy people.
R. That the land be not utterly laid waste, and that Thou destroy not every living soul.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.
Benedictio. Unigénitus Dei Fílius nos benedícere et adiuváre dignétur. Amen.

2 Sam 13:26-29
26 Et ait Absalom: Si non vis veníre, véniat, óbsecro, nobíscum saltem Amnon frater meus. Dixitque ad eum rex: Non est necesse ut vadat tecum.
27 Coégit itaque Absalom eum et dimísit cum eo Amnon et universos fílios regis. Feceratque Absalom convivium quasi convivium regis.
28 Præceperat autem Absalom púeris suis dicens: Observate: cum temulentus fúerit Amnon vino, et dixero vobis: Percútite eum et interficite; nolíte timere, ego enim sum qui præcipio: roborámini et estote viri fortes.
29 Fecérunt ergo púeri Absalom advérsum Amnon sicut præceperat eis Absalom. Surgentésque omnes fílii regis ascendérunt singuli mulas suas et fugérunt.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Exaudisti Domine orationem servi tui, ut aedificarem templum nomini tuo:

2 Sam 13:26-29
26 And Absalom said: If thou wilt not come, at least let my brother Amnon, I beseech thee, come with us. And the king said to him: It is not necessary that he should go with thee.
27 But Absalom pressed him, so that he let Amnon and all the king's sons go with him. And Absalom made a feast as it were the feast of a king.
28 And Absalom had commanded his servants, saying: Take notice when Amnon shall be drunk with wine, and when I shall say to you: Strike him, and kill him, fear not: for it is I that command you: take courage, and be valiant men.
29 And the servants of Absalom did to Amnon as Absalom had commanded them. And all the king's sons arose and got up every man upon his mule, and fled.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. O Lord, Thou hast hearkened unto the prayer of thy servant, that I might build a temple unto thy Name,
* O God of Israel, bless Thou, and hallow this house for ever.
V. O Lord, Who keepest covenant with thy servants that walk before thee in all their heart.
R. O God of Israel, bless Thou, and hallow this house for ever.
V. Iube, Dómine, benedícere.

2 Sam 13:30-34
30 Cumque adhuc pérgerent in itínere, fama pervénit ad David dicens: Percússit Absalom omnes fílios regis, et non remánsit ex eis saltem unus.
31 Surréxit itaque rex et scidit vestiménta sua et cécidit super terram, et omnes servi illíus, qui assistébant ei, scidérunt vestiménta sua.
32 Respondens autem Iónadab fílius Sémmaa fratris David dixit: Ne æstimet dominus meus rex quod omnes púeri fílii regis occisi sint; Amnon solus mórtuus est, quóniam in ore Absalom erat positus ex die qua oppressit Thamar sorórem eius.
33 Nunc ergo ne ponat dominus meus rex super cor suum verbum istud dicens: Omnes fílii regis occisi sunt, quóniam Amnon solus mórtuus est.
34 Fugit autem Absalom.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.

2 Sam 13:30-34
30 And while they were yet in the way, a rumour came to David, saying: Absalom hath slain all the king's sons, and there is not one of them left.
31 Then the king rose up, and rent his garments: and fell upon the ground, and all his servants, that stood about him, rent their garments.
32 But Jonadab the son of Semmaa David's brother answering, said: Let not my lord the king think that all the king's sons are slain: Amnon only is dead, for he was appointed by the mouth of Absalom from the day that he ravished his sister Thamar.
33 Now therefore let not my lord the king take this thing into his heart, saying: All the king's sons are slain: for Amnon only is dead.
34 But Absalom fled away:
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.
