Psalm [I]

1God, I have told you of my life;*
you have placed all my tears in your sight. Ps 56:8 [Vulgate, Ps 55:8] Ps 56:9 [Vulgate, Ps 55:9]
2All my enemies were plotting evil against me;* Ps 41:8 [Vulgate, Ps 40:8]
they took counsel together. Ps 71:10 [Vulgate, Ps 70:10]
3They repaid me evil for good*c
and hatred for my love. Ps 109:5 [Vulgate, Ps 108:5]
4They slandered me in return for my love,*
but I continued to pray. Ps 109:4 [Vulgate, Ps 108:4]
5My holy Father, King of heaven and earth, do not leave me* Jn 17:11 Mt 11:25
for trouble is near and there is no one to help. Ps 22:12 [Vulgate, Ps 21:12]
6Let my enemies be turned back+
on whatever day I shall call upon you;*
for now I know that you are my God. Ps 56:10 [Vulgate, Ps 55:10]
7My friends and my neighbors have drawn near
and have stood against me;*
those who were close to me have stayed far away. Ps 38:12 [Vulgate, Ps 37:12]
8You have driven my acquaintances far from me;*
they have made me an abomination to them.+
I have been handed over and did not escape. Ps 88:9 [Vulgate, Ps 87:9]
9Holy Father, do not remove your help from me;* Jn 17:11 Ps 22:20 [Vulgate, Ps 21:20]
my God, look to my aid. Ps 71:12 [Vulgate, Ps 70:12]
10Come to my help,*
Lord, God of my salvation. Ps 38:23 [Vulgate, Ps 37:23]
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Ad Completorium
Antiphona: Sancta Maria Virgo
Psalmus [I]

1Deus vitam meam annuntiavi tibi;*
posuisti lacrimas meas in conspectu tuo.
2Omnes inimici mei adversum me cogitabant mala mihi;*
et consilium fecerunt in unum.
3Et posuerunt adversum me mala pro vobis;*
et odium pro dilectione mea.
4Pro eo, ut me diligerent, detrahebant mihi;*
ego autem orabam.
5Mi pater sancte, rex caeli et terrae, ne discesseris a me*
quoniam tribulatio proxima est et non est qui adiuvet.
6Convertantur inimici mei retrorsum+
in quacumque die invocavero te;*
ecce cognovi, quoniam Deus meus es.
7Amici mei et proximi mei adversum me appropinquaverunt et steterunt*
et proximi mei a longe steterunt.
8Longe fecisti notos meos a me;*
posuerunt me abominationem sibi,+
traditus sum et non egrediebar.
9Pater sancte, ne elongaveris auxilium tuum a me;*
Deus meus ad auxilium meum respice.
10Intende in adiutorium meum,
Domine Deus salutis meae.
11Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto:*
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
