1 A Canticle Psalm. In dedication to the house of David.
2 I will extol you, Lord, for you have sustained me, and you have not allowed my enemies to delight over me.
3 O Lord my God, I have cried out to you, and you have healed me.
4 Lord, you led my soul away from Hell. You have saved me from those who descend into the pit.
5 Sing a psalm to the Lord, you his saints, and confess with remembrance of his holiness.
6 For wrath is in his indignation, and life is in his will. Toward evening, weeping will linger, and toward morning, gladness.
7 But I have said in my abundance: "I will never be disturbed."
8 O Lord, in your will, you made virtue preferable to beauty for me. You turned your face away from me, and I became disturbed.
9 To you, Lord, I will cry out. And I will make supplication to my God.
10 What use would there be in my blood, if I descend into corruption? Will dust confess to you or announce your truth?
Genesis 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10
5 Then God, seeing that the wickedness of men was great upon the earth and that every thought of their heart was intent upon evil at all times,
6 repented that he had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with a sorrow of heart,
7 he said, "I will eliminate man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man to other living things, from animals even to the flying things of the air. For it grieves me that I have made them."
8 Yet truly, Noah found grace before the Lord.
1 And the Lord said to him: "Enter the ark, you and all your house. For I have seen you to be just in my sight, within this generation.
2 From all the clean animals, take seven and seven, the male and the female. Yet truly, from animals that are unclean, take two and two, the male and the female.
3 But also from the birds of the air, take seven and seven, the male and the female, so that offspring may be saved upon the face of the whole earth.
4 For from that point, and after seven days, I will rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. And I will wipe away every substance that I have made, from the surface of the earth."
5 Therefore, Noah did all things just as the Lord had commanded him.
10 And when seven days had passed, the waters of the great flood inundated the earth.
