Psalms

106,1 Hallelujah. {N}

O give thanks unto the LORD; for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever.

106,2 Who can express the mighty acts of the LORD, or make all His praise to be heard?

106,3 Happy are they that keep justice, that do righteousness at all times.

106,4 Remember me, O LORD, when Thou favourest Thy people; O think of me at Thy salvation;

106,5 That I may behold the prosperity of Thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Thy nation, {N}

that I may glory with Thine inheritance.

106,6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have done iniquitously, we have dealt wickedly.

106,7 Our fathers in Egypt gave no heed unto Thy wonders; {N}

they remembered not the multitude of Thy mercies; {N}

but were rebellious at the sea, even at the Red Sea.

106,8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake, that He might make His mighty power to be known.

106,9 And He rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up; and He led them through the depths, as through a wilderness.

106,10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

106,11 And the waters covered their adversaries; there was not one of them left.

106,12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise.

106,13 They soon forgot His works; they waited not for His counsel;

106,14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tried God in the desert.

106,15 And He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

106,16 They were jealous also of Moses in the camp, and of Aaron the holy one of the LORD.

106,17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.

106,18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

106,19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped a molten image.

106,20 Thus they exchanged their glory for the likeness of an ox that eateth grass.

106,21 They forgot God their saviour, who had done great things in Egypt;

106,22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, terrible things by the Red Sea.

106,23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, {N}

had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach, {N}

to turn back His wrath, lest He should destroy them.

106,24 Moreover, they scorned the desirable land, they believed not His word;

106,25 And they murmured in their tents, they hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.

106,26 Therefore He swore concerning them, that He would overthrow them in the wilderness;

106,27 And that He would cast out their seed among the nations, and scatter them in the lands.

106,28 They joined themselves also unto Baal of Peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

106,29 Thus they provoked Him with their doings, and the plague broke in upon them.

106,30 Then stood up Phinehas, and wrought judgment, and so the plague was stayed.

106,31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness, unto all generations for ever.

106,32 They angered Him also at the waters of Meribah, and it went ill with Moses because of them;

106,33 For they embittered his spirit, and he spoke rashly with his lips.

106,34 They did not destroy the peoples, as the LORD commanded them;

106,35 But mingled themselves with the nations, and learned their works;

106,36 And they served their idols, which became a snare unto them;

106,37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto demons,

106,38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan; {N}

and the land was polluted with blood.

106,39 Thus were they defiled with their works, and went astray in their doings.

106,40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against His people, and He abhorred His inheritance.

106,41 And He gave them into the hand of the nations; and they that hated them ruled over them.

106,42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were subdued under their hand.

106,43 Many times did He deliver them; {N}

but they were rebellious in their counsel, and sank low through their iniquity.

106,44 Nevertheless He looked upon their distress, when He heard their cry;

106,45 And He remembered for them His covenant, and repented according to the multitude of His mercies.

106,46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captive.

106,47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the nations, {N}

that we may give thanks unto Thy holy name, that we may triumph in Thy praise.

106,48 Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting even to everlasting, {N}

and let all the people say:

‘Amen.’ {N}

Hallelujah. {P}

Samuel

2 23,12 But he stood in the midst of the plot, and defended it, and slew the Philistines; and the LORD wrought a great victory. {S}

2 23,13 And three of the thirty chief went down, and came to David in the harvest time unto the cave of Adullam; and the troop of the Philistines were encamped in the valley of Rephaim.

2 23,14 And David was then in the stronghold, and the garrison of the Philistines was then in Beth-lehem.

2 23,15 And David longed, and said:

‘Oh that one would give me water to drink of the well of Beth-lehem, which is by the gate!’ {S}

2 23,16 And the three mighty men broke through the host of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Beth-lehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David; but he would not drink thereof, but poured it out unto the LORD.

2 23,17 And he said:

‘Be it far from me, O LORD, that I should do this; shall I drink the blood of the men that went in jeopardy of their lives?’

therefore he would not drink it.

These things did the three mighty men. {S}

2 23,18 And Abishai, the brother of Joab, the son of Zeruiah, was chief of the three.

And he lifted up his spear against three hundred and slew them, and had a name among the three.

2 23,19 He was most honourable of the three; therefore he was made their captain; howbeit he attained not unto the first three. {S}

2 23,20 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done mighty deeds, he smote the two altar-hearths of Moab; he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow;

2 23,21 and he slew an Egyptian, a goodly man; and the Egyptian had a spear in his hand; but he went down to him with a staff, and plucked the spear out of the Egyptian’s hand, and slew him with his own spear.

2 23,22 These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had a name among the three mighty men.

2 23,23 He was more honourable than the thirty, but he attained not to the first three.

And David set him over his guard.

2 23,24 Asahel the brother of Joab was one of the thirty; Elhanan the son of Dodo of Beth-lehem;

2 23,25 Shammah the Harodite, Elika the Harodite;

Job

29,22 After my words they spoke not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

29,23 And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.

29,24 If I laughed on them, they believed it not; and the light of my countenance they cast not down.

29,25 I chose out their way, and sat as chief, {N} and dwelt as a king in the army, as one that comforteth the mourners.

30,1 But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, {N} whose fathers I disdained to set with the dogs of my flock.

30,2 Yea, the strength of their hands, whereto should it profit me? men in whom ripe age is perished.

30,3 They are gaunt with want and famine; they gnaw the dry ground, in the gloom of wasteness and desolation.

30,4 They pluck salt-wort with wormwood; and the roots of the broom are their food.

30,5 They are driven forth from the midst of men; they cry after them as after a thief.

30,6 In the clefts of the valleys must they dwell, in holes of the earth and of the rocks.

30,7 Among the bushes they bray; under the nettles they are gathered together.

30,8 They are children of churls, yea, children of ignoble men; they were scourged out of the land.

30,9 And now I am become their song, yea, I am a byword unto them.

30,10 They abhor me, they flee far from me, and spare not to spit in my face.

30,11 For He hath loosed my cord, and afflicted me, and they have cast off the bridle before me.

The Annunciation of Mark – Chapter 2

8 And Jesus knew, in his spirit, that they thus reasoned in themselves; and he said to them:

Why reason ye thus in your heart ?

9 Which is the easier, to say to a paralytic, Thy sins are forgiven thee ? or to say, Arise, take up thy bed, and walk ?

10 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, he said to the paralytic,

11 I say to thee, Arise, take thy bed, and go to thy house.

12 And he arose in that hour, took up his bed, and departed in presence of them all:

so that they were all amazed, and praised God, saying:

We never saw the like.

13 And he went again to the sea; and all the multitude came to him, and he taught them.

14 And as he passed along he saw Levi the son of Alpheus sitting among the publicans.

And he said to him:

Come after me.

And he arose and went after him.

15 And it was so, that as he reclined in his [Levi’s] house, many publicans and sinners reclined with Jesus and with his disciples:

for they were many, and they followed him.

16 And when the Scribes and Pharisees saw that he ate with publicans and with sinners, they said to his disciples:

Why doth he eat and drink with publicans and sinners ?

17 When Jesus heard [it], he said to them:

The healthy need not a physician, but those laboring under disease:

I came, not to call the righteous, but sinners.

18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees were fasters; and they came and said to him:

Why are the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fasters, and thy disciples fast not ?

The Book of Acts – Chapter 16

34 And he took them and brought them into his house, and set a table for them; and he rejoiced in the faith of God, he and all the members of his house.

35 And when it was morning, the prefects sent rod-bearers to say to the superior of the prison:

Let those men loose.

36 And when the superior of the prison heard [it], he went in, and said the same thing to Paul; [namely], that . the prefects have sent [word] that ye be set free.

And now, [said he,] Go ye out, and depart in peace.

37 But Paul said to him:

They have scourged us, unoffending men, and Romans, before all the world, and have cast us into prison; and now, do they secretly let us out?

No, surely:

but let them come themselves and bring us out.

38 And the rod-bearers went and told to the prefects the words which were told to them:

and when they heard that they were Romans, they were afraid,

39 and came to them, and entreated of them that they would come out, and that they would leave the city.
