PSALM 15

(from The Book of Psalms)

 

A Psalm of David.

 

LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle?  who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

 

He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

 

He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour,

nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

 

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD.

He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

 

He that putteth not out his money to usery, nor taketh reward against the innocent.

He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PSALM 23

(from The Book of Psalms)

 

A Psalm of David.

 

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

 

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:  he leadeth me beside the still waters.

 

He restoreth my soul:  he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

 

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:

for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

 

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE LORD’S PRAYER

(from St. Matthew, The Gospel According to:

Chapter 6, Verses 9 – 13)

 

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.

 

Your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.

 

Give us this day our daily bread.

 

And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.

 

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours.  Now and for ever.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to the

EPHESIANS

(Chapter 4, Verses 4 – 6)

 

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

 

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

 

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Epistle General of

JOHN

(Chapter 1, Verses 8 – 10)

 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

 

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

 

If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ECCLESIASTES

or, The Preacher

(Chapter 9, Verses 1 – 12)

 

For all this I considered in my heart even to declare all this,

that the righteous, and the wise, and their works,

are in the hand of God:  no man knoweth

either love or hatred by all that is before them.

 

All things come alike to all:  there is one event to the righteous,

and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean,

 and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth,

and to him that sacrificeth not; as is the good,

so is the sinner; and he that sweareth,

as he that feareth an oath.

 

This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun,

that there is one event unto all:  yea, also the heart of the sons of men

is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live,

and after that they go to the dead.

 

For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope:

for a living dog is better than a dead lion.

 

For the living know that they shall die:

but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward;

for the memory of them is forgotten.

 

Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished;

neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.

 

Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart;

for God now accepteth thy works.

 

Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.

 

Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity,

which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity:

for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.

 

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;

for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom,

in the grave, whither thou goest.

 

I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift,

nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise,

nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill;

but time and chance happeneth to them all.

 

For man also knoweth not his time:

as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare;

so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The General Epistle of

JAMES

(Chapter 2, Verses 14 – 18)

 

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works?

can faith save him?

 

If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

 

And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled;

Notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body;

What doth it profit?

 

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

 

Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works:

shew me thy faith without thy works,

and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to the

CORINTHIANS

(I – CORINTHIANS)

(Chapter 13)

 

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,

and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

 

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries,

and all knowledge; and though I have all faith,

so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

 

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,

and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity,

it profiteth me nothing.

 

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;

charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

 

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own,

is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

 

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

 

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

 

Charity never faileth:  but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;

whether there be tongues, they shall cease;

whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

 

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

 

But when that which is perfect is come,

then that which is in part shall be done away.

 

When I was a child, I spake as a child,

I understood as a child, I thought as a child:

but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

 

For now we see through a glass, darkly;

but then face to face:  now I know in part;

but then shall I know even as also I am known.

 

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three;

but the greatest of these is charity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to the

CORINTHIANS

(II – CORINTHIANS)

(Chapter 9, Verses 7 – 11)

 

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give;

not grudgingly, or of necessity:  for God loveth a cheerful giver.

 

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you;

that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things,

may abound to every good work:

 

(As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad;

he hath given to the poor:  his righteousness remaineth for ever.

 

Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food,

and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)

 

Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness,

which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Gospel According to

ST. MATTHEW

(Chapter 5, Verses 13 – 16)

 

Ye are the salt of the earth:  but if the salt have lost his savour,

wherewith shall it be salted?  it is thenceforth good for nothing,

but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

 

Ye are the light of the world.  A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

 

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick;

and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

 

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,

and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

 

 

(Verses 33 – 37)

 

Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time,

Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

 

But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:

 

Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool:

neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

 

Neither shalt thou swear by thy head,

because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

 

But let your communication be, Yea, yea;

Nay, nay:  for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

 

 

(Chapter 7, Verse 6)

 

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine,

lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Third Book of Moses, Called

LEVITICUS

(Chapter 18, Verse 22)

 

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind:

it is abomination(*).

 

 

(Chapter 20, Verse 13)

 

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman,

both of them have committed an abomination(*):  they shall surely be put to death;

their blood shall be upon them.

 

 

 

*Degeneration; gender deviation and filthiness; sexual deviation; a most disgusting, loathsome, or severely unmentionable thing.

 

 

 

 

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to the

CORINTHIANS

(I – CORINTHIANS)

(Chapter 6, Verses 9 – 11)

 

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived:  neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate,

nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

 

Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners,

shall inherit the kingdom of God.

 

And such were some of you:  but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified,

but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PSALM 58

(from The Book of Psalms)

 

To the chief Musician, Ăl-tăs’-chîth,

Mῐch’-tăm of David.

 

Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation?  do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?

 

Yea, in heart ye work wickedness;

ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

 

The wicked are estranged from the womb:

they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

 

Their poison is like the poison of a serpent:

they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

 

Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

 

Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth:

break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD.

 

Let them melt away as waters which run continually:

when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

 

As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away:

like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

 

Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind,

both living, and in his wrath.

 

The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance:

he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

 

So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous:

verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Fifth Book of Moses, Called

DEUTERONOMY

(Chapter 15, Verses 1 – 6)

 

At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.

 

And this is the manner of the release:  Every creditor that lendeth aught unto his neighbour

shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour,

or of his brother; because it is called the LORD’s release.

 

Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again:

but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;

 

Save when there shall be no poor among you;

for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee

for an inheritance to possess it:

 

Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God,

to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.

 

For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee:

and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not

borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations,

but they shall not reign over thee.

 

 

(Chapter 18, Verses 20 – 22)

 

But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name,

which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak

in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

 

And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word

which the LORD hath not spoken?

 

When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass,

that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken

it presumptuously:  thou shalt not be afraid of him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to

TIMOTHY

(Chapter 4, Verses 1 – 5)

 

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some

shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

 

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

 

Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats,

which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving

of them which believe and know the truth.

 

For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused,

if it be received with thanksgiving:

 

For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Gospel According to

ST. LUKE

(Chapter 7, Verses 41 – 43)

 

There was a certain creditor which had two debtors:

the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

 

And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both.

Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

 

Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most.

And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE LAMENTATIONS

of Jeremiah

(Chapter 5)

 

Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us:  consider, and behold our reproach.

 

Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.

 

We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.

 

We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.

 

Our necks are under persecution:  we labour, and have no rest.

 

We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.

 

Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.

 

Servants have ruled over us:  there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.

 

We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.

 

Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.

 

They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.

 

Princes are hanged up by their hand:  the faces of elders were not honoured.

 

They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.

 

The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their musick.

 

The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.

 

The crown is fallen from our head:  woe unto us, that we have sinned!

 

For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.

 

Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.

 

Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.

 

Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?

 

Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.

 

But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BOOK OF JOB

(Chapter 36, Verses 1 – 15)

 

Elihu also proceeded, and said,

 

Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God’s behalf.

 

I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.

 

For truly my words shall not be false:  he that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.

 

Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any:  he is mighty in strength and wisdom.

 

He preserveth not the life of the wicked:  but giveth right to the poor.

 

He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous:  but with kings are they on the throne;

yea; he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.

 

And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction;

 

Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.

 

He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.

 

If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity,

and their years in pleasures.

 

But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

 

But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath:  they cry not when he bindeth them.

 

They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

 

He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to the

ROMANS

(Chapter 14)

 

Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.

 

For one believeth that he may eat all things:  another, who is weak, eateth herbs.

 

Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not;

and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth:  for God hath received him.

 

Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant?  to his own master he standeth or falleth.

Yea, he shall be holden up:  for God is able to make him stand.

 

One man esteemeth one day above another:  another esteemeth every day alike.

Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.

 

He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord;

and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it.

He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks;

and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

 

For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

 

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord;

whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

 

For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived,

that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

 

But why dost thou judge thy brother?  or why dost thou set

at nought thy brother?  for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

 

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me,

and every tongue shall confess to God.

 

So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

 

Let us not therefore judge one another any more:  but judge this rather,

that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

 

I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself:

but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.

 

But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably.

Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died.

 

Let not then your good be evil spoken of:

 

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink;

but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

 

For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God,

and approved of men.

 

Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace,

and things wherewith one may edify another.

 

For meat destroy not the work of God.  All things indeed are pure;

but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.

 

It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine,

nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth,

or is offended, or is made weak.

 

Hast thou faith?  have it to thyself before God.  Happy is he

that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

 

And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith:

for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to the

THESSALONIANS

(I – THESSALONIANS)

(Chapter 5)

 

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

 

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

 

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them,

as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

 

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

 

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day:

we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

 

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others;

but let us watch and be sober.

 

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

 

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love;

and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

 

For God hath not appointed us to wrath,

but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

 

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

 

And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you,

and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

 

And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake.

And be at peace among yourselves.

 

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly,

comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

 

See that none render evil for evil unto any man;

but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

 

Rejoice evermore.

 

Pray without ceasing.

 

In every thing give thanks:  for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

 

Quench not the Spirit.

 

Despise not prophesyings.

 

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

 

Abstain from all appearance of evil.

 

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit

and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

 

Brethren, pray for us.

 

Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.

 

I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.

 

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Epistle of

ST. MARK

(Chapter 12, Verses 28 – 34)

 

And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together,

and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him,

Which is the first commandment of all?

 

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is,

Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

 

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul,

and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:  this is the first commandment.

 

And the second is like, namely this,

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  There is none other commandment greater than these.

 

And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth:

for there is one God; and there is none other but he:

 

And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul,

and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself,

is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.

 

And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him,

Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.  And no man after that durst ask him any question.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

(THE DECALOGUE)

 

1

I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt,

out of the house of bondage.  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 

 

2

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image,

or any likeness of any thing that is in the heaven above,

or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water

under the earth.  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them,

nor serve them:  for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God,

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children
unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me,

and keep my commandments.

 

 

3

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD

will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

 

 

4

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days shalt thou labour,

and do all thy work:  But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:

in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter,

nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle,

nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:  For in six days the LORD

made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day:

wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

 

5

Honour thy father and thy mother:

that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

 

 

6

Thou shalt not kill.

 

 

7

Thou shalt not commit adultery.

 

 

8

Thou shalt not steal.

 

 

9

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

 

 

10

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house,

thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife,

nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox,

nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle

to

TIMOTHY

(Chapter 1, Verses 5 – 11)

 

Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart,

and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

 

From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

 

Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say,

nor whereof they affirm.

 

But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

 

Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man,

but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners,

for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers

and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

 

For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind,

for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be

any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

 

According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God,

which was committed to my trust.

SHEMA YISRAEL

 

I – Deuteronomy:  Chapter 6, Verses 4 – 9

 

Hear, O Israel:  The LORD our God, the LORD is one.

 

Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

 

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.

 

Impress them upon your children.  Talk about them when you sit at home

and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

 

Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

 

Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

 

 

 

II – Chapter 11, Verses 13 – 21

 

So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today – to love the LORD your God

and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul –

 

then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains,

so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil.

 

I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

 

Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them.

 

Then the LORD’s anger will burst against you, and he will shut the heavens

so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce,

and you will soon perish from the good land the LORD is giving you.

 

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds;

tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.

 

Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home

and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

 

Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates,

 

so that your days and the days of your children may be many

in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers,

as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.

 

 

 

III – Numbers:  Chapter 15, Verses 37 – 41

 

The LORD said to Moses,

 

“Speak to the Israelites and say to them:  ‘Throughout the generations to come

you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel.

 

You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands

of the LORD, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by going after

the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.

 

Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God.

 

I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to be your God.

I am the LORD your God.’ ”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

18 BENEDICTIONS,

PRAYER OF THE

(Shemoneh Esreh)

 

The Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you;

the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.

Amen.

 

 

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.

As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people,

from this time forth and forever.  Peace be to his people!

Amen.

 

 

It is written, ‘Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people!’

May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,

so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Amen.

 

 

Finally, live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God,

and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

Amen.

 

 

May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom

and of revelation in the knowledge of him;

may the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you,

what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness

of his power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might which he accomplished in

Christ when he raised him from the dead.

Amen.

 

 

Now to him who by the power at work within us, is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think;

to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

 

Peace be to you, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love undying.

Amen.

 

 

May your love abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment,

so that you may approve what is excellent, and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,

filled with the fruits of righteousness which come through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

Amen.

 

 

Finally, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious,

if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

What you have learned and received, do; and the God of peace be with you.

Amen.

 

 

May our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, make you increase and abound in love

to one another and to all, and may he establish your hearts unblamable in holiness

before our God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.

Amen.

 

 

May the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly; and may your spirit and soul and body

be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

He who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.

Amen.

 

 

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort

and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good word and work.

Amen.

 

 

Now may the God of peace, who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep,

by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will,

working in you that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

 

According to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

You, therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, beware lest you be carried away

with the error of lawless men and lose your own stability.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity.

Amen.

 

 

We know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding,

to know him who is true; and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ.

This is the true God and eternal life.  Little children, keep yourselves from idols.

Amen.

 

 

But you, beloved, build yourselves up on your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit;

keep yourselves in the love of God; wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Now unto him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you without blemish

before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our Saviour, through Jesus Christ our Lord,

be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time, and now, and for ever.

Amen.

 

 

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members

of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with the spiritual food of his Body and Blood.

Send us now into the world in peace,

and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart;

through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

 

Almighty and everliving God, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious

Body and Blood of your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ;

and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son,

and heirs of your eternal kingdom.

And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do,

to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.

To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honour and glory, now and for ever.

Amen.
