Church_Slavonic.png Church Slavonic text

Блажен муж, иже не иде на совет нечестивых.
Яко весть Господь путь праведных, и путь нечестивых погибнет.
Работайте Господеви со страхом и радуйтеся Ему с трепетом.
Блажени вси надеющиися Нань.
Воскресни, Господи, спаси мя, Боже мой.
Господне есть спасение и на людех Твоих благословение Твое.
Слава Отцу и Сыну и Святому Духу,
и ныне и присно и во веки веков. Аминь.
Аллилуйиа. Слава Тебе, Боже.

English.png English translation

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked.
The Lord knows the way of the righteous, and the way of the wicked will perish.
Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice in Him with trembling.
Blessed is he who puts his trust in Him.
Arise, Lord, save me, my God.
The Lord is the savior of the people of His blessing.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
now and ever and forever more. Amen.
Alleluia. Glory to You, God.
