THE PSALTER: First Kathisma
Psalm Three LXX (Ps. 3, Masoretic)

St. Pachomius Library Translation of the Septuagint

  1. A Psalm of David, when he was fleeing from before the face of Absalom his son.

  2. Lord, why are they increased that trouble me? Many are they that rise up against me.
  3. Many there be which say of my soul, There is no salvation for him in his God. ( Selah.)
  4. But thou, O LORD, art my protector; my glory, and the lifting up of mine head.
  5. I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy mountain. ( Selah.)
  6. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD shall sustain me.
  7. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that beset me round about.
  8. Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou smotest all that were without cause mine enemies; thou brakest the teeth of sinners.
  9. Salvation belongeth unto the LORD, and thy blessing is upon thy people.



The St. Pachomius Orthodox Library, Sunday of the Last Judgement, 2004.

Have mercy, O Lord, upon Thy servants the scribe John, the priest John, and the parishioners of the temple of Saint Andrew in Lubbock.
