Advanced Settings

Visual Theme Saved!

Use light mode or dark mode, or default to your computer's setting for light or dark mode

Substitute Sunday/Holy Day (Eucharistic) Lectionary Saved!

On Sundays and major holy days, do you want to use the standard Daily Office readings or substitue the 3-year Sunday/Holy Day cycle? When the Daily Office is used for the principal service of a church, the prayer book instructs you to replace the Daily Office readings with the three year cycle of Sunday and Holy Day readings. This is generally done only in churches and not when using the Daily Office as a personal devotion at home.

Confession Intro Length Saved!

Use either the short or long exhortation before the confession.

Absolution Style Saved!

After the confession, read an absolution suitable for a priest or a prayer suitable for a deacon or lay person.

Morning Prayer Invitatory Saved!

Open with the Venite (Psalm 95) always (traditional), have a special celebratory invitatory on Sundays and feasts (Pascha Nostrum during Eastertide or Jubilate/Psalm 100 otherwise), or rotate between the normal and celebratory invitatory each day. Regardless of which setting you choose, the Pascha Nostrum is always used during the first week of Easter, and the invitatory will never be the same as one of the day's appointed psalms.

Reading Headings Saved!

Show or hide headings from the English Standard Version of the Bible in scripture readings

Language Style for Prayers Saved!

Traditional and contemporary language options are available for the Kyrie (Lord have mercy) and the Lord's Prayer

National Holiday Collects Saved!

Show country-specific commemorations for the United States, Canada, or both.

Evening Prayer Suffrages Saved!

Choose which set of short prayers to be used each evening

Additional Collects Saved!

Include the Great Litany after the collects at Morning Prayer

Great Litany at Evening Prayer Saved!

Include the Great Litany after the collects at Evening Prayer

General Thanksgiving Saved!

Pray the General Thanksgiving at the end of Morning and Evening Prayer

Prayer of St. John Chrysostom Saved!

Pray the Prayer of St. John Chrysostom at the end of Morning and Evening Prayer. This prayer is suitable when praying in a group.

The Grace Saved!

Rotate each day through the three provided conclusions, or always use the same one from the classic prayer books.

Advent "O" Antiphons Saved!

The traditional "O" Antiphons are used before and after the first canticle in Evening Prayer during the last eight days of Advent. You can use literal translations of the original Latin, or the familiar paraphrases used in the hymn "O Come, O Come Emmanuel"

Psalm 119

Beati immaculati

1 Blessed are those who are undefiled in their ways,*

and walk in the law of the Lord.

2 Blessed are those who keep his testimonies*

and seek him with their whole heart,

3 Even those who do no wickedness*

and perfectly walk in his ways.

4 You have ordered your precepts*

that we should diligently keep them.

5 O that my ways were made so direct*

that I might keep your statutes!

6 Then would I not be put to shame*

while I give heed unto all your commandments.

7 I will thank you with an upright heart,*

when I have learned your righteous judgments.

8 I will keep your statutes;*

O do not forsake me utterly.

9 How shall a young man cleanse his way?*

By ruling himself according to your word.

10 With my whole heart I have sought you;*

O let me not go astray from your commandments.

11 Your words have I hidden within my heart,*

that I may not sin against you.

12 Blessed are you, O Lord;*

teach me your statutes.

13 With my lips have I been telling*

of all the judgments of your mouth.

14 I have had greater delight in the way of your testimonies*

than in all manner of riches.

15 I will meditate on your commandments*

and have respect for all your ways.

16 My delight will be in your statutes,*

and I will not forget your word.

17 O do well unto your servant,*

that I may live, and keep your word.

18 Open my eyes that I may see*

the wondrous things of your law.

19 I am a sojourner on earth;*

O hide not your commandments from me.

20 My soul is consumed with the fervent desire*

that it always has for your judgments.

21 You have rebuked the proud,*

and cursed are those who stray from your commandments.

22 O turn from me shame and contempt,*

for I have kept your testimonies.

23 Though princes sit and speak against me,*

yet will your servant meditate on your statutes;

24 For your testimonies are my delight,*

and they are my counselors.

25 My soul cleaves to the dust;*

O revive me, according to your word

26 I have acknowledged my ways, and you heard me;*

O teach me your statutes.

27 Make me to understand the way of your commandments,*

and so shall I meditate on your wondrous works.

28 My soul melts away for heaviness;*

comfort me according to your word.

29 Take from me the way of lying,*

and graciously teach me your law.

30 I have chosen the way of truth,*

and your judgments have I set before me.

31 I hold fast to your testimonies;*

O Lord, let me not be put to shame.

32 I will run the way of your commandments*

when you enlarge my heart with understanding.

33 Teach me, O Lord, the way of your statutes,*

and I shall keep it to the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep your law;*

indeed, I shall keep it with my whole heart.

35 Make me go in the path of your commandments,*

for therein is my desire.

36 Incline my heart to your testimonies,*

and not to covetous desires.

37 O turn away my eyes, lest they behold vanity,*

and revive me in your ways.

38 Confirm your word to your servant,*

and to all those who fear you.

39 Take away the reproach that I am afraid of,*

for your judgments are good.

40 Behold, my delight is in your precepts;*

O revive me in your righteousness.

41 Let your loving mercy come to me, O Lord,*

even your salvation, according to your word.

42 So shall I answer those who taunt me,*

for my trust is in your word.

43 O do not take the word of your truth utterly out of my mouth,*

for my hope is in your judgments.

44 So shall I always keep your law,*

even for ever and ever;

45 And I will walk at liberty,*

for I seek your commandments.

46 I will speak of your testimonies also, even before kings,*

and will not be ashamed;

47 And my delight shall be in your commandments,*

which I have loved exceedingly.

48 My hands also will I lift up to your commandments,*

and I will meditate on your statutes.

49 O remember your word to your servant,*

in which you have caused me to put my trust.

50 This is my comfort in my trouble,*

for your word has given me life.

51 The proud have held me exceedingly in derision,*

yet I have not turned aside from your law.

52 For I have remembered, O Lord, your judgments from of old,*

and by them I have received comfort.

53 I am filled with indignation,*

because of the ungodly who forsake your law.

54 Your statutes have been my songs*

in the house of my pilgrimage.

55 I have thought upon your Name, O Lord, in the night season,*

and I have kept your law.

56 This has been my reward,*

because I have kept your commandments.

57 You are my portion, O Lord;*

I have promised to keep your law.

58 I made my humble petition in your presence with my whole heart;*

O be merciful to me, according to your word.

59 I have called my ways to remembrance*

and turned my feet to your testimonies.

60 I made haste and did not delay*

to keep your commandments.

61 The cords of the ungodly have encircled me,*

but I have not forgotten your law.

62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks to you,*

because of your righteous judgments.

63 I am a companion of all those who fear you*

and keep your commandments.

64 The earth, O Lord, is full of your mercy;*

O teach me your statutes.

65 O Lord, you have dealt graciously with your servant,*

according to your word.

66 O teach me true understanding and knowledge,*

for I have believed your commandments.

67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,*

but now I keep your word.

68 You are good and gracious;*

O teach me your statutes.

69 The proud have slandered me with lies,*

but I will keep your commandments with my whole heart.

70 Their heart has become gross with fatness,*

but my delight is in your law.

71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted,*

that I may learn your statutes.

72 The law of your mouth is dearer to me*

than thousands in gold and silver.

73 Your hands have made me and fashioned me;*

O give me understanding, that I may learn your commandments.

74 Those who fear you will be glad when they see me,*

because I have put my trust in your word.

75 I know, O Lord, that your judgments are right,*

and that in your faithfulness you have caused me to be afflicted.

76 O let your merciful kindness be my comfort,*

according to your word to your servant.

77 O let your loving mercies come to me, that I may live,*

for your law is my delight.

78 Let the proud be put to shame, for they go about wickedly to destroy me; *

but I will meditate on your commandments.

79 Let those who fear you turn to me,*

even those who know your testimonies.

80 O let my heart be sound in your statutes,*

that I may never be put to shame.

81 My soul has longed for your salvation,*

and I have a good hope because of your word.

82 My eyes long sorely for your word,*

saying, "O when will you comfort me?"

83 For I have become like a wineskin in the smoke,*

yet I do not forget your statutes.

84 How many are the days of your servant?*

When will you execute judgment on those who persecute me?

85 The proud have dug pits for me;*

they do not walk after your law.

86 All your commandments are true.*

They persecute me falsely; O Lord, be my help.

87 They had almost made an end of me on earth,*

but I have not forsaken your commandments.

88 O revive me with your loving-kindness,*

and so shall I keep the testimonies of your mouth.

89 O Lord, your word endures for ever;*

it stands fast in heaven.

90 Your faithfulness remains from one generation to another;*

you have laid the foundation of the earth, and it abides.

91 Surely your ordinances stand firm this day,*

for all things are your servants.

92 If my delight had not been in your law,*

I should have perished in my affliction.

93 I will never forget your commandments,*

for with them you have enlivened me.

94 I am yours; O save me!*

For I have sought your commandments.

95 The ungodly lie in wait for me to destroy me,*

but I will consider your testimonies.

96 I see that all things come to an end,*

but your commandment has no bounds.

97 Lord, what love I have for your law;*

all the day long I meditate on it.

98 You, through your commandment, have made me wiser than my enemies,*

for it is always with me.

99 I have more understanding than my teachers,*

for your testimonies are my study.

100 I am wiser than the agéd,*

because I keep your commandments.

101 I have restrained my feet from every evil way,*

that I may keep your word.

102 I have not turned aside from your judgments,*

for you yourself have taught me.

103 Oh how sweet are your words to my taste;*

indeed, sweeter than honey to my mouth.

104 Through your commandments I get understanding;*

therefore I hate all evil ways.

105 Your word is a lantern to my feet*

and a light upon my path.

106 I have sworn and am steadfastly purposed*

to keep your righteous judgments.

107 I am troubled above measure;*

revive me, O Lord, according to your word.

108 Let the freewill offerings of my mouth please you, O Lord;*

and teach me your judgments.

109 My life is always in my hand,*

yet I do not forget your law.

110 The ungodly have laid a snare for me,*

yet I have not strayed from your commandments.

111 Your testimonies have I claimed as my heritage for ever,*

and why? They are the very joy of my heart.

112 I have applied my heart to fulfill your statutes always,*

even unto the end.

113 I hate those who are double-minded,*

but your law do I love.

114 You are my defense and shield,*

and my trust is in your word.

115 Away from me, you wicked.*

I will keep the commandments of my God.

116 Establish me according to your word, that I may live,*

and let me not be disappointed in my hope.

117 Hold me up, and I shall be safe;*

indeed, my delight shall be ever in your statutes.

118 You have trodden down all those who depart from your statutes,*

for they only imagine deceit.

119 You put away all the ungodly of the earth like dross;*

therefore I love your testimonies.

120 My flesh trembles for fear of you,*

and I am afraid of your judgments.

121 I have done that which is lawful and right;*

O give me not over to my oppressors.

122 Be surety for your servant's good;*

O let not the arrogant oppress me.

123 My eyes have wasted away with looking for your salvation,*

and for the word of your righteousness.

124 O deal with your servant according to your loving mercy,*

and teach me your statutes.

125 I am your servant; O grant me understanding,*

that I may know your testimonies.

126 It is time for you, O Lord, to act,*

for they have broken your law.

127 For I love your commandments above all things,*

more than gold and precious stones.

128 Therefore I hold all your commandments to be right,*

and all false ways I utterly abhor.

129 Your testimonies are wonderful;*

therefore does my soul keep them.

130 When your word goes forth it gives light*

and understanding to the simple.

131 I opened my mouth, and drew in my breath,*

for my delight was in your commandments.

132 O look upon me, and be merciful unto me,*

as you always do for those who love your Name.

133 Order my steps according to your word,*

and so shall no wickedness have dominion over me.

134 O deliver me from those who deal wrongfully,*

and so shall I keep your commandments.

135 Show the light of your countenance upon your servant,*

and teach me your statutes.

136 My eyes gush out water*

because of those who do not keep your law.

137 Righteous are you, O Lord,*

and true are your judgments.

138 The testimonies that you have commanded*

are exceedingly righteous and true.

139 My zeal has even consumed me,*

because my enemies have forgotten your words.

140 Your word is tested to the uttermost,*

and therefore your servant loves it.

141 I am small, and of no reputation,*

yet I do not forget your commandments.

142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,*

and your law is the truth.

143 Trouble and heaviness have taken hold of me,*

yet my delight is in your commandments.

144 The righteousness of your testimonies is everlasting;*

O grant me understanding, and I shall live.

145 I call with my whole heart.*

Hear me, O Lord; I will keep your statutes.

146 Even unto you do I call;*

help me, and I shall keep your testimonies.

147 Early in the morning do I cry unto you,*

for in your word is my trust.

148 My eyes open before the night watches,*

that I may meditate on your words.

149 Hear my voice, O Lord, according to your loving-kindness;*

give me life according to your judgments.

150 They draw nigh who in malice persecute me,*

and are far from your law.

151 Be near at hand, O Lord,*

for all your commandments are true.

152 Concerning your testimonies, I have known long ago*

that you have founded them for ever.

153 O consider my adversity and deliver me,*

for I do not forget your law.

154 Plead my cause and deliver me;*

give me life according to your word.

155 Salvation is far from the ungodly,*

for they do not regard your statutes.

156 Great is your mercy, O Lord;*

give me life according to your judgments.

157 Many there are who trouble me and persecute me,*

yet I do not swerve from your testimonies.

158 It grieves me when I see the transgressors,*

because they do not keep your law.

159 Consider, O Lord, how I love your commandments;*

O give me life according to your loving-kindness.

160 Your word is true from everlasting;*

all the judgments of your righteousness endure for evermore.

161 Princes have persecuted me without a cause,*

but my heart stands in awe of your word.

162 I am as glad of your word*

as one who finds great spoils.

163 As for lies, I hate and abhor them,*

but your law do I love.

164 Seven times a day do I praise you,*

because of your righteous judgments.

165 Great is the peace they have who love your law*

and find in it no stumbling block.

166 Lord, I have looked for your saving health*

and have done your commandments.

167 My soul has kept your testimonies,*

and I have loved them exceedingly.

168 I have kept your commandments and testimonies,*

for all my ways are before you.

169 Let my complaint come before you, O Lord;*

give me understanding, according to your word.

170 Let my supplication come before you;*

deliver me, according to your word.

171 My lips shall pour forth your praise,*

when you have taught me your statutes.

172 Surely my tongue shall sing of your word,*

for all your commandments are righteous.

173 Let your hand be strong to help me,*

for I have chosen your commandments.

174 I have longed for your saving health, O Lord,*

and in your law is my delight.

175 O let my soul live, and it shall praise you;*

and let your judgments help me.

176 I have gone astray like a sheep that is lost;*

O seek your servant, for I do not forget your commandments.
