1 Of David himself. O Lord, I will confess to you with my whole heart, for you have heard the words of my mouth. I will sing psalms to you in the sight of the Angels.
2 I will adore before your holy temple, and I will confess your name: it is above your mercy and your truth. For you have magnified your holy name above all.
3 On whatever day that I will call upon you: hear me. You will multiply virtue in my soul.
4 May all the kings of the earth confess to you, O Lord. For they have heard all the words of your mouth.
5 And let them sing in accordance with the ways of the Lord. For great is the glory of the Lord.
6 For the Lord is exalted, and he looks with favor on the humble. But the lofty he knows from a distance.
7 If I wander into the midst of tribulation, you will revive me. For you extended your hand against the wrath of my enemies. And your right hand has accomplished my salvation.
8 The Lord will provide retribution on my behalf. O Lord, your mercy is forever. Do not disdain the works of your hands.
Isaiah 6:1-2a, 3-8
1 In the year in which king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, sublime and exalted, and the things that were under him filled the temple.
2 The Seraphims were standing above the throne. One had six wings, and the other had six wings:
3 And they were crying out to one another, and saying: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God of hosts! All the earth is filled with his glory!"
4 And the lintels above the hinges were shaken at the voice of the one crying out. And the house was filled with smoke.
5 And I said: "Woe to me! For I have remained silent. For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live in the midst of a people having unclean lips, and I have seen with my eyes the King, the Lord of hosts!"
6 And one of the Seraphims flew to me, and in his hand was a burning coal, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.
7 And he touched my mouth, and he said, "Behold, this has touched your lips, and so your iniquities will be taken away, and your sin will be cleansed."
8 And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: "Whom shall I send?" and, "Who will go for us?" And I said: "Here I am. Send me."
