26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 19:8, 10, 12-13, 14

The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.

Verse 1:

The law of the LORD is perfect,
   refreshing the soul;
the decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
   giving wisdom to the simple.

Verse 2:

The fear of the LORD is pure,
   enduring forever;
the ordinances of the LORD are true,
   all of them just.

Verse 3:

Though your servant is careful of them,
   very diligent in keeping them,
yet who can detect failings?
   Cleanse me from my unknown faults!

Verse 4:

From wanton sin especially, restrain your servant;
   let it not rule over me.
Then shall I be blameless and innocent
   of serious sin.
