1 The Praise of a Canticle, of David himself. Come, let us exult in the Lord. Let us shout joyfully to God, our Savior.
2 Let us anticipate his presence with confession, and let us sing joyfully to him with psalms.
3 For the Lord is a great God and a great King over all gods.
4 For in his hand are all the limits of the earth, and the heights of the mountains are his.
5 For the sea is his, and he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us adore and fall prostrate, and let us weep before the Lord who made us.
7 For he is the Lord our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
8 If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts:
9 as in the provocation, according to the day of temptation in the wilderness, where your fathers tempted me; they tested me, though they had seen my works.
15 The Lord your God will raise up for you a PROPHET from your nation and from your brothers, similar to me. You shall listen to him,
16 just as you petitioned of the Lord your God at Horeb, when the assembly was gathered together, and you said: 'Let me no longer hear the voice of the Lord my God, and let me no longer see this very great fire, lest I die.'
17 And the Lord said to me: 'They have spoken all these things well.
18 I will raise up a prophet for them, from the midst of their brothers, similar to you. And I will place my words in his mouth, and he will speak to them all the things that I will instruct him.
19 But against anyone who is not willing to listen to his words, which he will speak in my name, I will stand forth as the avenger.
20 But if a prophet, having been corrupted by arrogance, chooses to speak, in my name, things which I did not instruct him to say, or to speak in the name of foreign gods, he shall be put to death.
