Psalms, Chapter 149

(1) Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. (2) Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. (3) Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. (4) For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. (5) Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. (6) Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; (7) To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; (8) To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; (9) To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Blessing of Salt and Feed for Animals

Lord God, Creator and Preserver of all things, in whose hand is the vital principle of every living being and the spirit of all flesh, hear we beseech Thee, the prayers of those who believe in Thee. Pour out Thy blessing on this salt (feed, fodder) and fill it with the benefits of Thy invisible power; grant that these animals which Thou hast graciously destined for man's needs may be freed of all disease and protected from the attacks of the evil one when they eat of this salt (feed, fodder). Through Christ our Lord. Amen. Translated by Most Reverend J. H. Schlarman Bishop of Peoria
