The Ninth Sunday after Trinity.
Deuteronomy 33.2-4, 26-29
Dominus de Sinai venit
The LORD came from Sinai, *and rose up from Seir unto them;
He shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: * from his right hand went a fiery law for them.
Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: * and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.
Moses commanded us a law, * even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.
And he was king in Jeshurun, * when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel were gathered together.
There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, * and in his excellency on the sky.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: * and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.
Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; * also his heavens shall drop down dew.
Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, * O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help,
And who is the sword of thy excellency! And thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; * and thou shalt tread upon their high places.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son * and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be * world without end. Amen.
GRANT to us, Lord, we beseech thee, the spirit to think and do always such things as be rightful; that we, who cannot do any thing that is good without thee, may by thee be enabled to live according to thy will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
