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.
7 And as for you, son of man, I have made you a watchman to the house of Israel. Therefore, having heard the word from my mouth, you shall announce it to them from me.
8 When I say to the impious, 'O impious man, you will die a death,' if you have not spoken so that the impious man will keep himself from his way, then that impious man will die in his iniquity. But I will attribute his blood to your hand.
9 But if you have announced to the impious man, so that he may be converted from his ways, and he has not converted from his way, then he will die in his iniquity. Yet you will have freed your own soul.
