Evening Prayer for Tuesday After Proper 21

Practice: Hymnody


Opening Hymn: LEVAS2 (L176)    An Evening Prayer

V: O God, make speed to save us.
R: O Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.
World without end. Amen, amen!
O Gracious Light Phos hilaron with words
O gracious light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.
The Psalm or Psalms Appointed
Psalm 94 Deus ultionum
1   O LORD God of vengeance, *
O God of vengeance, show yourself.
2   Rise up, O Judge of the world; *
give the arrogant their just deserts.
3   How long shall the wicked, O LORD, *
how long shall the wicked triumph?
4   They bluster in their insolence; *
all evildoers are full of boasting.
5   They crush your people, O LORD, *
and afflict your chosen nation.
6   They murder the widow and the stranger *
and put the orphans to death.
7   Yet they say, "The LORD does not see, *
the God of Jacob takes no notice."
8   Consider well, you dullards among the people; *
when will you fools understand?
9   He that planted the ear, does he not hear? *
he that formed the eye, does he not see?
10   He who admonishes the nations, will he not punish? *
he who teaches all the world, has he no knowledge?
11   The LORD knows our human thoughts; *
how like a puff of wind they are.
12   Happy are they whom you instruct, O Lord! *
whom you teach out of your law;
13   To give them rest in evil days, *
until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14   For the LORD will not abandon his people, *
nor will he forsake his own.
15   For judgment will again be just, *
and all the true of heart will follow it.
16   Who rose up for me against the wicked? *
who took my part against the evildoers?
17   If the LORD had not come to my help, *
I should soon have dwelt in the land of silence.
18   As often as I said, "My foot has slipped, " *
your love, O LORD, upheld me.
19   When many cares fill my mind, *
your consolations cheer my soul.
20   Can a corrupt tribunal have any part with you, *
one which frames evil into law?
21   They conspire against the life of the just *
and condemn the innocent to death.
22   But the LORD has become my stronghold, *
and my God the rock of my trust.
23   He will turn their wickedness back upon them and destroy them in their own malice; *
the LORD our God will destroy them.
Psalm 95 Venite, exultemus
1   Come, let us sing to the LORD; *
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
2   Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
3   For the LORD is a great God, *
and a great King above all gods.
4   In his hand are the caverns of the earth, *
and the heights of the hills are his also.
5   The sea is his, for he made it, *
and his hands have molded the dry land.
6   Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *
and kneel before the LORD our Maker.
7   For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. *
Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!
8   Harden not your hearts, as your forebears did in the wilderness, *
at Meribah, and on that day at Massah, when they tempted me.
9   They put me to the test, *
though they had seen my works.
10   Forty years long I detested that generation and said, *
This people are wayward in their hearts; they do not know my ways."
11   So I swore in my wrath, *
"They shall not enter into my rest."




The Lessons

A reading from Matthew 7:1-12
"Do not judge, so that you may not be judged. For with the judgment you make
you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.
Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log
in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, 'Let me take the
speck out of your eye,' while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite,
first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take
the speck out of your neighbor's eye. "Do not give what is holy to dogs;
and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them
under foot and turn and maul you. "Ask, and it will be given you; search,
and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.
For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds,
and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone?
Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil,
know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father
in heaven give good things to those who ask him! "In everything do to others a
s you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets.
Here ends the Reading.
