Ad Tertiam
Antiphona: Sancta Maria Virgo
Psalmus [IV]

1Miserere mei, Deus, quoniam conculcavit me homo *
tota die impugnans tribulavit me.
2Conculcaverunt me inimici mei
tota die quoniam multi bellantes adversum me.
3Omnes inimici mei adversum me cogitabant mala mihi*
verbum iniquum constituerunt adversum me.
4Qui custodiebant animam meam, *
consilium fecerunt in unum.
5Egrediebantur foras *
et loquebantur in idipsum.
6Omnes videntes me deriserunt me *
locuti sunt labiis et moverunt caput.
7Ego autem sum vermis et non homo *
opprobrium hominum et abiectio plebis.
8Super omnes inimicos meos factus
sum opprobrium vicinis meis valde *
et timor notis meis.
9Pater sancte ne elongaveris auxilium tuum a me *
ad defensionem, meam conspice.
10Intende in adiutorium meum *
Domine Deus salutis meae.

Ad Sextam
Antiphona: Sancta Maria Virgo
Psalmus [V]

1Voce mea ad Dominum clamavi *
voce mea ad Dominum deprecatus sum.
2Effundo in conspectu eius orationem meam *
et tribulationem meam ante ipsum pronuntio.
3In deficiendo ex me spiritum meum *
et tu cognovisti semitas meas.
