Psalm 66; Psalm 67; Romans 7

1 (65-1) <Unto the end, a canticle of a psalm of the resurrection.> Shout with joy to God, all the earth, 2 (65-2) Sing ye a psalm to his name; give glory to his praise. 3 (65-3) Say unto God, How terrible are thy works, O Lord! in the multitude of thy strength thy enemies shall lie to thee. 4 (65-4) Let all the earth adore thee, and sing to thee: let it sing a psalm to thy name. 5 (65-5) Come and see the works of God; who is terrible in his counsels over the sons of men. 6 (65-6) Who turneth the sea into dry land, in the river they shall pass on foot: there shall we rejoice in him. 7 (65-7) Who by his power ruleth for ever: his eyes behold the nations; let not them that provoke him be exalted in themselves. 8 (65-8) O bless our God, ye Gentiles: and make the voice of his praise to be heard. 9 (65-9) Who hath set my soul to live: and hath not suffered my feet to be moved: 10 (65-10) For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us by fire, as silver is tried. 11 (65-11) Thou hast brought us into a net, thou hast laid afflictions on our back: 12 (65-12) Thou hast set men over our heads. We have passed through fire and water, and thou hast brought us out into a refreshment. 13 (65-13) I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows, 14 (65-14) Which my lips have uttered, And my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble. 15 (65-15) I will offer up to thee holocausts full of marrow, with burnt offerings of rams: I will offer to thee bullocks with goats. 16 (65-16) Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will tell you what great things he hath done for my soul. 17 (65-17) I cried to him with my mouth: and I extolled him with my tongue. 18 (65-18) If I have looked at iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me. 19 (65-19) Therefore hath God heard me, and hath attended to the voice of my supplication. 20 (65-20) Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
1 (66-1) <Unto the end, in hymns, a psalm of a canticle for David.> (66-2) May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may he cause the light of his countenance to shine upon us, and may he have mercy on us. 2 (66-3) That we may know thy way upon earth: thy salvation in all nations. 3 (66-4) Let people confess to thee, O God: let all people give praise to thee. 4 (66-5) Let the nations be glad and rejoice: for thou judgest the people with justice, and directest the nations upon earth. 5 (66-6) Let the people, O God, confess to thee: let all the people give praise to thee: 6 (66-7) The earth hath yielded her fruit. May God, our God bless us, 7 (66-8) May God bless us: and all the ends of the earth fear him.
1 Know you not, brethren (for I speak to them that know the law) that the law hath dominion over a man as long as it liveth? 2 For the woman that hath an husband, whilst her husband liveth is bound to the law. But if her husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 Therefore, whilst her husband liveth, she shall be called an adulteress, if she be with another man: but if her husband be dead, she is delivered from the law of her husband: so that she is not an adulteress, if she be with another man. 4 Therefore, my brethren, you also are become dead to the law, by the body of Christ: that you may belong to another, who is risen again from the dead that we may bring forth fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members, to bring forth fruit unto death. 6 But now we are loosed from the law of death wherein we were detained; so that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? God forbid! But I do not know sin, but by the law. For I had not known concupiscence, if the law did not say: Thou shalt not covet. 8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. 9 And I lived some time without the law. But when the commandment came, sin revived, 10 And I died. And the commandment that was ordained to life, the same was found to be unto death to me. 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, seduced me: and by it killed me. 12 Wherefore the law indeed is holy: and the commandment holy and just and good. 13 Was that then which is good made death unto me? God forbid! But sin, that it may appear sin, by that which is good, wrought death in me: that sin, by the commandment, might become sinful above measure. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual. But I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I work, I understand not. For I do not that good which I will: but the evil which I hate, that I do. 16 If then I do that which I will not, I consent to the law, that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it: but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that there dwelleth not in me, that is to say, in my flesh, that which is good. For to will is present with me: but to accomplish that which is good, I find not. 19 For the good which I will, I do not: but the evil which I will not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that which I will not, it is no more I that do it: but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that when I have a will to do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I am delighted with the law of God, according to the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, fighting against the law of my mind and captivating me in the law of sin that is in my members. 24 Unhappy man that I am, who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 The grace of God, by Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore, I myself, with the mind serve the law of God: but with the flesh, the law of sin.
