I pray the current Liturgy of the Hours - those deriving from the reform of the Divine Office by His Holiness Paul VI.
I like it very much and find it to be a great blessing. However, there is one thing that I don't like about it: it's omits three entire Psalms (Psalms 57/58, 82/83), and 108/109). Not only that, it omits 59 verses from other Psalms on account of their offensive tone.
For example, Psalm 108/109 contains these difficult words:
9 May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. 10 Let his children be carried about vagabonds, and beg; and let them be cast out of their dwellings. 11 May the usurer search all his substance: and let strangers plunder his labours. 12 May there be none to help him: nor none to pity his fatherless offspring.So what do you think? Should we not recite this Psalm and other imprecatory Psalms?
