Psalms
124,1 A Song of Ascents; of David. {N}
‘If it had not been the LORD who was for us’,
let Israel now say;
124,2 ‘If it had not been the LORD who was for us, when men rose up against us,
124,3 Then they had swallowed us up alive, when their wrath was kindled against us;
124,4 Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul;
124,5 Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.’
124,6 Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
124,7 Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers; {N}
the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
124,8 Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth. {P}

Numbers18,25 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
18,26 ‘Moreover thou shalt speak unto the Levites, and say unto them:
When ye take of the children of Israel the tithe which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall set apart of it a gift for the LORD, even a tithe of the tithe.
18,27 And the gift which ye set apart shall be reckoned unto you, as though it were the corn of the threshing-floor, and as the fulness of the wine-press.
18,28 Thus ye also shall set apart a gift unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and thereof ye shall give the gift which is set apart unto the LORD to Aaron the priest.
18,29 Out of all that is given you ye shall set apart all of that which is due unto the LORD, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of it.
18,30 Therefore thou shalt say unto them:
When ye set apart the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshing-floor, and as the increase of the wine-press.
18,31 And ye may eat it in every place, ye and your households; for it is your reward in return for your service in the tent of meeting.
18,32 And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, seeing that ye have set apart from it the best thereof; and ye shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel, that ye die not.’ {P}
19,1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:
19,2 This is the statute of the law which the LORD hath commanded, saying:
Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer, faultless, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke.
19,3 And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, and she shall be brought forth without the camp, and she shall be slain before his face.
19,4 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and sprinkle of her blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven times.
19,5 And the heifer shall be burnt in his sight; her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall be burnt.
19,6 And the priest shall take cedar-wood, and hyssop, and scarlet, and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer.
19,7 Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he may come into the camp, and the priest shall be unclean until the even.
19,8 And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even.
19,9 And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of sprinkling; it is a purification from sin.

Kings
2 6,1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha:
‘Behold now, the place where we dwell before thee is too strait for us.
2 6,2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto the Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell.’
And he answered:
‘Go ye.’
2 6,3 And one said:
‘Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants.’
And he answered:
‘I will go.’
2 6,4 So he went with them.
And when they came to the Jordan, they cut down wood.
2 6,5 But as one was felling a beam, the axe-head fell into the water; and he cried, and said:
‘Alas, my master! for it was borrowed.’
2 6,6 And the man of God said:
‘Where fell it?’
And he showed him the place.
And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither, and made the iron to swim.
2 6,7 And he said:
‘Take it up to thee.’
So he put out his hand, and took it. {P}
2 6,8 Now the king of Aram warred against Israel; and he took counsel with his servants, saying:
‘In such and such a place shall be my camp.’
2 6,9 And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying:
‘Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Arameans are coming down.’
2 6,10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of; and he guarded himself there, not once nor twice.
2 6,11 And the heart of the king of Aram was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them:
‘Will ye not tell me which of us is for the king of Israel?’
2 6,12 And one of his servants said:
‘Nay, my lord, O king; but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bed-chamber.’
2 6,13 And he said:
‘Go and see where he is, that I may send and fetch him.’
And it was told him, saying:
‘Behold, he is in Dothan.’
2 6,14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host; and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
2 6,15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, a host with horses and chariots was round about the city.
And his servant said unto him:
‘Alas, my master! how shall we do?’
2 6,16 And he answered:
‘Fear not:
for they that are with us are more than they that are with them.’
2 6,17 And Elisha prayed, and said:
‘LORD, I pray Thee, open his eyes, that he may see.’
And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw; and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
2 6,18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said:
‘Smite this people, I pray Thee, with blindness.’
And He smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
2 6,19 And Elisha said unto them:
‘This is not the way, neither is this the city; follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom ye seek.’
And he led them to Samaria.
2 6,20 And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said:
‘LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see.’
And the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria.
2 6,21 And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them:
‘My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them?’
2 6,22 And he answered:
‘Thou shalt not smite them; hast thou taken captive with thy sword and with thy bow those whom thou wouldest smite? set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go to their master.’
2 6,23 And he prepared great provision for them; and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master.
And the bands of Aram came no more into the land of Israel. {P}
2 6,24 And it came to pass after this, that Ben-hadad king of Aram gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria.
2 6,25 And there was a great famine in Samaria; and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a kab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver.
2 6,26 And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying:
‘Help, my lord, O king.’

Lamentations
1,1 How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people!
How is she become as a widow!
She that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary! {S}
1,2 She weepeth sore in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks; she hath none to comfort her among all her lovers; all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, they are become her enemies. {S}
1,3 Judah is gone into exile because of affliction, and because of great servitude; she dwelleth among the nations, she findeth no rest; all her pursuers overtook her within the straits. {S}
1,4 The ways of Zion do mourn, because none come to the solemn assembly; all her gates are desolate, her priests sigh; her virgins are afflicted, and she herself is in bitterness. {S}
1,5 Her adversaries are become the head, her enemies are at ease; for the LORD hath afflicted her for the multitude of her transgressions; her young children are gone into captivity before the adversary. {S}
1,6 And gone is from the daughter of Zion all her splendour; her princes are become like harts that find no pasture, and they are gone without strength before the pursuer. {S}
1,7 Jerusalem remembereth in the days of her affliction and of her anguish all her treasures that she had from the days of old; now that her people fall by the hand of the adversary, and none doth help her, the adversaries have seen her, they have mocked at her desolations. {S}
1,8 Jerusalem hath grievously sinned, therefore she is become as one unclean; all that honoured her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness; she herself also sigheth, and turneth backward. {S}
1,9 Her filthiness was in her skirts, she was not mindful of her end; therefore is she come down wonderfully, she hath no comforter.
‘Behold, O LORD, my affliction, for the enemy hath magnified himself.’ {S}
1,10 The adversary hath spread out his hand upon all her treasures; for she hath seen that the heathen are entered into her sanctuary, concerning whom Thou didst command that they should not enter into Thy congregation. {S}
1,11 All her people sigh, they seek bread; they have given their pleasant things for food to refresh the soul.
‘See, O LORD, and behold, how abject I am become.’ {S}
1,12 ‘Let it not come unto you, all ye that pass by!
Behold, and see if there be any pain like unto my pain, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of His fierce anger. {S}
1,13 From on high hath He sent fire into my bones, and it prevaileth against them; He hath spread a net for my feet, He hath turned me back; He hath made me desolate and faint all the day. {S}
1,14 The yoke of my transgressions is impressed by His hand; they are knit together, they are come up upon my neck; He hath made my strength to fail; the Lord hath delivered me into their hands, against whom I am not able to stand. {S}
1,15 The Lord hath set at nought all my mighty men in the midst of me; He hath called a solemn assembly against me to crush my young men; the Lord hath trodden as in a winepress the virgin the daughter of Judah.’ {S}

The Annunciation of Mark – Chapter 11
4 And they went, and they found the colt tied, by the door, without in the street.
And as they were loosing [him],
5 some of those standing there, said to them:
What do ye, untying the colt ?
6 And they said to them, as Jesus had commanded them;
and they permitted them.
7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments upon him, and set Jesus upon him.
8 And many spread their garments in the way;
and others cut branches from the trees, and strewed them in the way.
9 And those preceding him, and those following him shouted and said:
Hosanna:
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
10 And blessed is the advancing kingdom of our father David.
Hosanna in the highest [heavens].
11 And Jesus entered Jerusalem and the temple, and surveyed every thing.
And when evening arrived, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
12 And the following day, as he left Bethany, he was hungry:
13 and he saw a fig-tree at a distance, on which were leaves, and he came to it, if he could find somewhat on it. And when he had come, he found on it only leaves;
for the time of figs had not arrived.
14 And he said to it:
Henceforth and for ever, let no man eat fruit from thee:
and the disciples heard it.
And they came to Jerusalem.

The Book of Acts – Chapter 23
21 But be not thou persuaded by them:
for, lo, more than forty persons of them watch for him in ambush, and have bound themselves by imprecations, that they will neither eat nor drink until they shall have slain him:
and lo, they are prepared, and are waiting for thy promise
22 And the Chiliarch dismissed the young man, after charging him:
Let no man know, that thou hast showed me these things.
23 And he called two centurions, and said to them:
Go and prepare two hundred Romans to go to Caesarea, and seventy horsemen, and shooters with the right hand two hundred;
and let them set out at the third hour of the night.
24 And provide also a saddle beast, that they may set Paul on it, and carry him safely to Felix the governor.
25 And he wrote a letter and gave them, in which was, thus:
26 Claudius Lysias to the excellent governor Felix;
greeting.
