Tuesday - Lauds

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

God, come to my assistance
Lord, make haste to help me

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

Preparation - Make a firm resolution to avoid evil and to do good.

Psalm 82

O God, who shall be like to thee?
Hold not thy peace, neither be thou still, O God.

For lo, thy enemies have made a noise:
and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.

They have taken a malicious counsel against they people,
and have consulted against thy saints.

They have said: 
Come and let us destroy them,
so that they be not a nation:
and let the name of Israel be remembered no more.

For they have contrived with one consent:
they have made a covenant together against thee,
the tabernacles of the Edomites, and the Ishmahelites,
Moab, and the Agarens,

Gebal, and Ammon and Amalec:
the Philistines, 
and the inhabitants of Tyre.

Yea, and the Assyrian is also joined with them:
they are come to the aid of the sons of Lot.

Do to them as thou didst to Madian and to Sisara:
as to Jabin at the brook of Cisson.

Who perished at Endor:
and became as dung for the Earth.

Make their princes like Oreb,
and Zeb and Zebee, and Salmana.
All their princes, who have said :

Let us possess the Sanctuary of God
for an inheritance.

Oh my God, make them like a wheel;
and as stubble before the wind.

As fire which burneth the wood;
and as a flame burning mountains:

So shalt thou pursue them with thy tempest:
and shalt trouble them in thy wrath.

Fill their faces with shame;
and they shall seek thy name, O Lord.

Let them be ashamed and troubled for ever and ever:
and let them be confounded and perish.
And let them know that the Lord is thy name:
thou alone art the most High over all the earth.

Exodus 17:8-16

And Amalec came, 
and fought against Israel in Raphidim

And Moses said to Josue: Choose out men:
and go out and fight against Amalec:
to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill
having the rod of God in my hand.

Josue did as Moses had spoken,
and he fought against Amalec;
but Moses, and Aaron, and Hur
went up upon the top of the hill.

And when Moses lifted up his hands, 
Israel overcame:
but if he let them down a little,
Amalec overcame.

And Moses' hands were heavy:
so they took a stone, 
and put under him, and he sat on it:
and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands on both sides.
And it came to pass 
that his hands were not weary until sunset.

And Josue put Amalec and his people to flight,
by the edge of the sword.

And the Lord said to Moses:
Write this for a memorial in a book,
and deliver it to the ears of Josue:
for I will destroy the memory of Amalec
from under heaven.

And Moses built an altar:
and called the name thereof, the Lord my exaltation,

Because the hand of the throne of the Lord,
and the war of the Lord shall be against Amalec,
from generation to generation.

Gospel Canticle

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
because he hath visited
and wrought the redemption of his people.

And hath raised up an horn of salvation to us,
in the house of David his servant:

As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets,
who are from the beginning.

Salvation from our enemies,
and from the hands of all that hate us.

To perform mercy to our fathers,
and to remember his holy testament,

The oath, which he swore to Abraham our father,
that he would grant to us,

That being delivered from the hands of our enemies,
we may serve him without fear,

In holiness and justice before him,
all our days.

And thou, child,
shalt be called the prophet of the Highest;
for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord
to prepare his ways:

To give knowledge of salvation to his people,
unto the remission of their sins:

Through the bowels of the mercy of our God,
in which the Orient from on high hath visited us:

To enlighten them that sit in darkness,
and in the shadow of death:
to direct our feet into the way of peace.

Pater Noster

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.


May the Lord bless us,
Protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
