The Twenty-first Day.

Morning Prayer.

Psalm 105. Confitemini Domino.
GIVE thanks unto the LORD, and call upon his Name; * tell the people what things he hath done.
2 O let your songs be of him, and praise him; * and let your talking be of all his wondrous works.
3 Rejoice in his holy Name; * let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
4 Seek the LORD and his strength; * seek his face evermore.
5 Remember the marvellous works that he hath done; * his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, * ye children of Jacob his chosen.
7 He is the LORD our God; * his judgments are in all the world.
8 He hath been alway mindful of his covenant and promise, * that he made to a thousand generations;
9 Even the covenant that he made with Abraham; * and the oath that he sware unto Isaac;
10 And appointed the same unto Jacob for a law, * and to Israel for an everlasting testament;
11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, * the lot of your inheritance:
12 When there were yet but a few of them, * and they strangers in the land;
13 What time as they went from one nation to another, * from one kingdom to another people;
14 He suffered no man to do them wrong, * but reproved even kings for their sakes;
15 Touch not mine anointed, * and do my prophets no harm.
16 Moreover, he called for a dearth upon the land, * and destroyed all the provision of bread.
17 But he had sent a man before them, * even Joseph, who was sold to be a bond-servant;
18 Whose feet they hurt in the stocks; * the iron entered into his soul;
19 Until the time came that his cause was known: * the word of the LORD tried him.
20 The king sent, and delivered him; * the prince of the people let him go free.
21 He made him lord also of his house, * and ruler of all his substance;
22 That he might inform his princes after his will, * and teach his senators wisdom.
23 Israel also came into Egypt, * and Jacob was a stranger in the land of Ham.
24 And he increased his people exceedingly, * and made them stronger than their enemies;
25 Whose heart turned so, that they hated his people, * and dealt untruly with his servants.
26 Then sent he Moses his servant, * and Aaron whom he had chosen.
27 And these showed his tokens among them, * and wonders in the land of Ham.
28 He sent darkness, and it was dark; * and they were not obedient unto his word.
29 He turned their waters into blood, * and slew their fish.
30 Their land brought forth frogs; * yea, even in their kings' chambers.
31 He spake the word, and there came all manner of flies, * and lice in all their quarters.
32 He gave them hailstones for rain; * and flames of fire in their land.
33 He smote their vines also and fig-trees; * and destroyed the trees that were in their coasts.
34 He spake the word, and the grasshoppers came, and caterpillars innumerable, * and did eat up all the grass in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
35 He smote all the firstborn in their land; * even the chief of all their strength.
36 He brought them forth also with silver and gold; * there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
37 Egypt was glad at their departing; * for they were afraid of them.
38 He spread out a cloud to be a covering, * and fire to give light in the night season.
39 At their desire he brought quails; * and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
40 He opened the rock of stone, and the waters flowed out, * so that rivers ran in the dry places.
41 For why? he remembered his holy promise; * and Abraham his servant.
42 And he brought forth his people with joy, * and his chosen with gladness;
43 And gave them the lands of the heathen; * and they took the labours of the people in possession;
44 That they might keep his statutes, * and observe his laws.

Evening Prayer.

Psalm 106. Confitemini Domino.
O GIVE thanks unto the LORD; for he is gracious, * and his mercy endureth for ever.
2 Who can express the noble acts of the LORD, * or show forth all his praise?
3 Blessed are they that alway keep judgment, * and do righteousness.
4 Remember me, O LORD, according to the favour that thou bearest unto thy people; * O visit me with thy salvation;
5 That I may see the felicity of thy chosen, * and rejoice in the gladness of thy people, and give thanks with thine inheritance.
6 We have sinned with our fathers; * we have done amiss, and dealt wickedly.
7 Our fathers regarded not thy wonders in Egypt, neither kept they thy great goodness in remembrance; * but were disobedient at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
8 Nevertheless, he helped them for his Name's sake, * that he might make his power to be known.
9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; * so he led them through the deep, as through a wilderness.
10 And he saved them from the adversary's hand, * and delivered them from the hand of the enemy.
11 As for those that troubled them, the waters overwhelmed them; * there was not one of them left.
12 Then believed they his words, * and sang praise unto him.
13 But within a while they forgat his works, * and would not abide his counsel.
14 But lust came upon them in the wilderness, * and they tempted God in the desert.
15 And he gave them their desire, * and sent leanness withal into their soul.
16 They angered Moses also in the tents, * and Aaron the saint of the LORD.
17 So the earth opened, and swallowed up Dathan, * and covered the congregation of Abiram.
18 And the fire was kindled in their company; * the flame burnt up the ungodly.
19 They made a calf in Horeb, * and worshipped the molten image.
20 Thus they turned their glory * into the similitude of a calf that eateth hay.
21 And they forgat God their Saviour, * who had done so great things in Egypt;
22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham; * and fearful things by the Red Sea.
23 So he said he would have destroyed them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the gap, * to turn away his wrathful indignation, lest he should destroy them.
24 Yea, they thought scorn of that pleasant land, * and gave no credence unto his word;
25 But murmured in their tents, * and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.
26 Then lift he up his hand against them, * to overthrow them in the wilderness;
27 To cast out their seed among the nations, * and to scatter them in the lands.
28 They joined themselves unto Baal-peor, * and ate the offerings of the dead.
29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their own inventions; * and the plague was great among them.
30 Then stood up Phinehas, and interposed; * and so the plague ceased.
31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness, * among all posterities for evermore.
32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, * so that he punished Moses for their sakes;
33 Because they provoked his spirit, * so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.
34 Neither destroyed they the heathen, * as the LORD commanded them;
35 But were mingled among the heathen, * and learned their works.
36 Insomuch that they worshipped their idols, which became a snare unto them; * yea, they offered their sons and their daughters unto devils;
37 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, * whom they offered unto the idols of Canaan; and the land was defiled with blood.
38 Thus were they stained with their own works, * and went a whoring with their own inventions.
39 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, * insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.
40 And he gave them over into the hand of the heathen; * and they that hated them were lords over them.
41 Their enemies oppressed them, * and had them in subjection.
42 Many a time did he deliver them; * but they rebelled against him with their own inventions, and were brought down in their wickedness.
43 Nevertheless, when he saw their adversity, * he heard their complaint.
44 He thought upon his covenant, and pitied them, according unto the multitude of his mercies; * yea, he made all those that led them away captive to pity them.
45 Deliver us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen; * that we may give thanks unto thy holy Name, and make our boast of thy praise.
46 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, from everlasting, and world without end; * And let all the people say, Amen.
