Psalm 35 (Kathisma 5)
Read on Monday (Monday and Wednesday during Lent)
For the End: Of David, the Child of the Lord.
(Psalm 36 - Hebrew Numbering)
The transgressor, that he may sin, saith to himself, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
For he hath wrought craftiness before Him, lest he should find his iniquity and hate it.
The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit, he hath not willed to understand how to do good.
Iniquity hath he devised upon his bed, he hath set himself in every way that is not good, and evil hath he not abhorred.
O Lord, Thy mercy is in heaven, and Thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
Thy righteousness is as the mountains of God, Thy judgements are a great abyss.
Men and beasts wilt thou save, O Lord.
How Thou hast multiplied Thy mercy, O God! Let the sons of men hope in the shelter of Thy wings.
They shall be drunken with the fatness of Thy house, and of the torrent of Thy delight shalt Thou make them to drink.
For in thee is the fountain of life, in Thy light shall we see light.
O continue Thy mercy unto them that know Thee, and Thy righteousness unto the upright of heart.
Let not the foot of pride come against me, nor let the hand of a sinner move me.
Yonder be fallen all they that work iniquity; they are cast out, and shall not be able to stand.
