Psalm 131

 

O Lord, remember David

and all the many hardships he endured,

                                                                                                                                              

the oath he swore to the Lord,

his vow to the Strong One of Jacob.

 

 “I will not enter the house where I live

nor go to the bed where I rest.

                                                                                                                                              

I will give no sleep to my eyes,

to my eyelids I will give no slumber

                                                                                                                                              

till I find a place for the Lord,

a dwelling for the Strong One of Jacob.”

                                                                                                                                              

At Ephrata we heard of the ark;

we found it in the plains of Yearim.

                                                                                                                                              

 “Let us go to the place of his dwelling;

“let us go to kneel at his footstool.”

                                                                                                                                              

Go up, Lord, to the place of your rest,

you and the ark of your strength.

                                                                                                                                              

Your priests shall be clothed with holiness;

your faithful shall ring out their joy.

                                                                                                                                              

For the sake of David your servant

do not reject your anointed.

                                                                                                                                              

The Lord swore an oath to David;

he will not go back on his word:

                                                                                                                                              

 “A son, the fruit of your body,

will I set upon your throne.

                                                                                                                                              

If they keep my covenant in truth

and my laws that I have taught them.

                                                                                                                                              

their sons also shall rule

on your throne from age to age.”

                                                                                                                                              

For the Lord has chosen Zion;

he has desired it for his dwelling:

                                                                                                                                              

 “This is my resting-place for ever,

here have I chosen to live.

                                                                                                                                              

I will greatly bless her produce,

I will fill her poor with bread.

                                                                                                                                              

I will clothe her priests with salvation

and her faithful shall ring out their joy.

                                                                                                                                              

There David’s stock will flower:

I will prepare a lamp for my anointed.

                                                                                                                                              

I will cover his enemies with shame

but on him my crown shall shine.”

                                                                                                                                               

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

                                                                                                                                              

the God who is, who was and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

 

 

Psalm 132

                                                                                                                                              

How good and how pleasant it is,

when brothers live in unity!

                                                                                                                                              

It is like precious oil upon the head.,

running down upon the beard,

                                                                                                                                              

running down upon Aaron’s beard,

upon the collar of his robes.

                                                                                                                                              

It is like the dew of Hermon which falls

on the heights of Zion,

                                                                                                                                              

For there the Lord gives his blessing,

life for ever.

                                                                                                                                              

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

                                                                                                                                              

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

  

  

 

  

Short Reading

(varies)

Isaiah 58:1-2

 

Cry out full-throated and unsparingly,

lift up your voice like a trumpet blast;

tell my people their wickedness,

and the house of Jacob their sins. 

 

They seek me day after day,

and desire to know my ways,

like a nation that has done what is just

and not abandoned the law of their God.

 

 

Your word is a lamp for my steps.

 

And a light for my path.

 

 

Let us pray

 

Lord, you call us to worship you at the hour when the apostles went to pray in the temple.

 

We offer our prayer in the name of Jesus:

may his saving powercome to all who call upon his name.

 

Who lives for ever and ever.

 

Amen
