Reading and responsory for Fridays throughout the year

The one reading on Fridays in 'summer' at Matins is from Wisdom 1:6-7:

V: Jube Domne, benedicere
Pray Lord, a blessing
Blessing: A cunctis vitiis et peccatis absolvat nos virtus sanctæ Trinitatis.
From all vices and sins may the power of the Holy Trinity absolve us.
Reading: Benignus est enim spiritus sapientiæ, et non liberabit maledicum a labiis suis: quoniam renum illius testis est Deus, et cordis illius scrutator est verus, et linguæ ejus auditor * Quoniam spiritus Domini replevit orbem terrarum, et hoc quod continet omnia, scientiam habet vocis.
For the spirit of wisdom is benevolent, and will not acquit the evil speaker from his lips: for God is witness of his reins, and he is a true searcher of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue.For the Spirit of the Lord hath filled the whole world: and that, which containeth all things, hath knowledge of the voice.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias
But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Thanks be to God.
Short responsory:
R: Misericordias Domini * in æternum cantabo
V: Misericordias Domini * in æternum cantabo
R: In generationem et progenie
V: In æternum cantabo
R: Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto
V: In æternum cantabo

The mercies of the Lord * I will sing for ever
The mercies of the Lord * I will sing for ever
From generation and generation
I will sing for ever
Glory be to the Father…
I will sing for ever
