Psalms, Chapter 101

(1) I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing. (2) I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. (3) I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. (4) A froward heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. (5) Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. (6) Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me. (7) He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight. (8) I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of the LORD.

Blessing of the Barn and the Stored Harvest

O Lord, Almighty God, Thou dost not cease to give many riches in the dew that falls from heaven, and nourishment for life in fertility of the soil. We give thanks to Thy most gracious majesty for the fruits of the field which we have harvested, and we pray that Thou wouldst bless and preserve these fruits which we have received from Thy hand; grant us, whom Thou hast filled with these gifts, that we may glory in Thy protection and praise Thy mercy forever, and so having received (enjoyed) temporal gifts we may not lose those that are eternal. Translated by Most Reverend J. H. Schlarman Bishop of Peoria
