After the Shiv'a - The Seven Days of Mourning:

TWO PSALMS

These Psalms, among others, are Psalms of condolence and expressions of faith which are suitable for a Memorial Ceremony.

PSALM XV

1. A Psalm of David.
LORD, who shall sojourn in Thy tabernacle?
Who shall dwell upon Thy holy mountain?

2. He that walks uprightly, and works
righteousness,
And speaks truth in his heart;

3. That has no slander upon his tongue,
Nor does evil to his fellow,
Nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;

4. In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors them that fear the LORD;
He that swears to his own hurt, and changes not;

5. He that puts not out his money on interest,
Nor takes a bribe against the innocent.
He that does these things shall never be moved.

PSALM XC
[excerpts]

5. Thou carriest them away as with a flood;
they are as a sleep;
In the morning they are like grass which
groweth up.

6. In the morning does it flourish and grow up;
In the evening is it cut down and does it wither.

12. So teach us to number our days,
That we may get us a heart of wisdom.

16. Let Thy work appear unto Thy servants,
And Thy glory upon their chidlren.

17. And let the graciousness of the Lord our God
be upon us;
Establish Thou also upon us the work of our
hands;
Yea, the work our hands establish Thou it.
