Readings:  Exodus 20:1-17;   John 2:13-22

Post Communion:  Almighty God, you hate nothing that you have made, and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: create in us a clean and contrite heart; that, in lamenting our sinfulness, we may receive from you, the God of all mercy, forgiveness and perfect peace; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

Psalm 19. Caeli enarrant.

7 The law of the LORD is an undefiled law con/verting the / soul; * the testimony of the LORD is sure, and giveth / wisdom / unto the /  simple.                                                                         8 The statutes of the LORD are right and re/joice the / heart; * the commandment of the LORD is pure, and giveth / light unto the / eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean and en/dureth for / ever; * the judgments of the LORD are true / and righteous / altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea than / much fine / gold; * sweeter also than / honey / and the / honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy / servant / taught; * and in keeping of them / there is / great re/ward.
12 Who can tell how / oft he of/fendeth? * O cleanse thou me / from my / secret / faults.
13 Keep thy servant also from presumptuous sins, lest they get the do/minion / over me; * so shall I be undefiled and innocent / from the / great of/fence.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation / of my / heart, be alway ac/ceptable / in thy / sight,                                                                                                                                             15 O LORD, my / strength and / my re/deemer.
