THE PREFACE. 



IT hath been the nisdom of the Church of England, erer dnce the first com- 
piling of her PuUick Liturgy, to keep the meiui between the two extremes, 
of too much sti&eis in refdsing, tuid of too mnch eoainesa in admittiiig an; 
variation from it. For, as on the one ude common experience sheweth, tbat 
where a change hath been made of things adviaedlj established (no evident 
necessity so requiring) sundry inconveniences have thereupon ensued ; and 
those many times nx>re and greater thaa the evils, that were int^ided to he 
remedied by such change : 80 on the other nde, the particular Forms of Divine 
worship, and the Bites and Cerem(UiieB (^pointed to be used therein, being 
things in their own nature indifferent, and alterable, and so acknowledged ; it 
is bat reasonable, that upon wedghty and important consideratdons, according to 
the various exigency of times and occasions, such changes and alterations should 
be made therein, as to those that are in place of Authority shoold from time 
to time seem either necessary or expedient. Accordingly we find, that in the 
Reigns of seTCrat Primes of blessed memory since the Reformation, the Church, 
upon just and weighty considerations her thereunto moving, hath yielded U> 
make such alterations in some particulars, as in their respective times were 
thought convenient : Yet so, as that the main Body and Essentials of It (as well 
in the chiefeet materials, as in the frame and order thereof) have still continued 
the same onto tlus day. and do yet stand firm and unshaken, notwithstanding 
aD the vain attempts and impetuous sssaults made against it, by such men 
as are given to change, and have always discovered a greater refold to their 
own private fancies and interests, than to that duty they owe to the publick. 

By what undoe means, and for what mischievons purposes the use of the 
Liturgy (though ei^oined by the Laws of the Land, and those Laws never yet 
repealed) came, daring the late tmhtqipy confhsions, to be discontinued, is too 
well known to the woiid, and we are not willing here to remember. But when, 
upon His Miyesty'B happy Bestoration, it seemed probaUe, tbat, amongst other 
things, the use of tbe Liturgy would also return of course (the same having 
never been l^:ally abolished) unless some timely means were need to prevent 
it ; those men who under the late nsorped powers had made it a great part of 
thdr business to render the people disaffected thereunto, saw themselves in 
point of reputation and interest concerned (unless they wonld freely acknow- 
ledge themselves to have erred, which such men are veiy hardly brought to 
do) with their utmost endeavours to hinder the restitution thereo£ In order 
whereunto divers Pamphlets were published against the Book of Common 
Praytr, the old otyections mustered up, witii the addition of "some new ones, 
more than formerly had been made, to make the number swelL In fine, great 
importunities were used to His Sacred Majesty, that the said Book might be 
revised, and snch Alterations therein, and Additions thereunto made^ as should 
he thought requisite for the ease of tender Consciences : whereunto His M^esty, 
out of his pious inclination to give satisfnctf on (so (ar as could be reasonably ex- 
pected) to all bis mtijecteofwhat persnadon soever, did graciously condescend. 

In wluch review we have endeavoured to observe the like moderation, as we 
find to have been used in the like case in former times. And therefore of the 
sundry alterations proposed unto ns, we have rtgected all soch as were either 
of dangerous oonseqaence (as secretly stiikhig at some established Doctrine, or 
laudable Practice of the Chun^ nS England, or indeed of the whole Catholic^ 
Church of Christ) w else of no omiBeqaenoe at all, but utteiiy fHvolona and

THE PREFACE. 

Tiin. But Boch alterations as were tendered to ub (by what persons, wider 
what pretences, or to what purpose soever tendered) as seemed to us in an; 
degree requite or expedient, we have willingly, and of our own accord assented 
unto : not enforced so to do b; any strength of Argument, convindng us of the 
neceasity of making the said Alterations : For we are fully persuaded in our 
jodgmenta (and we here profess it to the world) that the Book, m it stood 
before eatabUshed b; Law, doth not contain in it any thing coDtrary to the 
Word <^ Ood, or to sound Doctrine, or which a godly man may not with a good 
Conscience use and submit unto, or which is not fairly defensible agiunst any 
that shall oppose the same ; if it shall be allowed such just and favourable 
GonstrucUon as in common equity ought to be allowed to all human Writings, 
eapecially sudi as are set forth by Authority, and even to the very best transla- 
tioDs of the holy Scripture itseU. 

Our genery aim therefore in this undertaking was, not to gratify this or 
tiiat party in any their unreasonable demands ; bat to do that, which to our 
beat nnderstaadings we conceived might most twd to the preservatiou of Peace 
and Uni^ in the Church ; the procuring of Reverence, and exdtiDg of Fiety 
and Devotion in the publick Worship of Ood ; and the cutting off occasJon 
from them that seek occason of cavil or quarrel against the Liturgy of the 
Chorch. And as to the several vamtioug from the former Book, whether by 
Alteration, Addition, or otherwise, it shall suffice t^ give this general account. 
That meet of the Alterations were made, either first, for the better direction of 
them that are to officiate in any part of Divine Bervioe ; which is chiefly done 
in the Calendars and Rubricks ; Or secondly, for the more proper expressing of 
some words or phrases of andent usage in terms more suitable to the language 
of the present times, and the clearer explanation of some other words and 
phrsses, that were either of doubtfitl ugniBcation, or otherwise liable to mis- 
construction : Or tbirdly, for a more perfect rendering of such portions of holy 
Scnptore, as are inserted into the Liturgy; which, in the Epistles and Gospels 
eapecially, and in sundry other places, are now ordered to be read according te 
tiko Iwt Translation : and that it was thought convenient, that some Prayers 
and ThankagiTings, fitted to spedal occaaons, should be added in their due 
phem ; particularly for those at 3ea, together with an Office for the Baptism of 
■ndi as are of riper years : which, although not so necessBry when the former 
Book was cominled, yet by the growth of Anabaptism, through the licentious- 
ness of the Ute times crept in amongst us, is now become necessary, and may 
be always usefiil for the baptizing of Natives in our Plantations, and others 
oaaf erted to the Faith. If any man, who shall desire a more particuUr accoimt 
at the several Alterations in any part of the Liturgy, shall take the pains to 
oompwe the present Book with the former ; we doubt not but the reason lA 
the diai^e may eanly appear. 

And havii^ thus endeavoured to discharge onr duties in this vrdghty affair, 
as in the sig^t of Ood, and to qiprove onr sincerity therein (so far as lay in 
us) to the otmsdences of all men ; although we know it impossiUe (in sudi 
varied of s^prebensions, humonis and interests, as are in the world) to please 
all ; nor can expect that men of &ctions, peevish, and perverse sforits should 
be Bfttisfted with any thing that can be done in this kind by any other than 
themselves : Yet we have good hope, that what is here presented, and hath 
been t>y the Convocations of both Provinces with gre&t diligence examined and 
approved, will be also well accepted and ^iproved by all sober, peaceable, and 
Sons of the Church of Etiffland. 



CONCEItNING THE SEKVICE OF THE CHUKCH. 



THERE wM aertr »af thing bj the 
wit of man N>neU de^wd, or u nirn 
Mtabliihed, which in continuanca of time 
hath not bMacoinipted: Aj, among other 
thlngt, it may pUinly appear by the Com- 
1 Fnyer* in the Church, coounmlj 
edlad DMth Strvlof. The firM origintl 
id ground whereof if a nun would tearch 
t by the aodeat Fathera, he shall find, 
that the wme wai not ordained but of k 
good purpoee, and for a great adTanccmeit 
of godhnm. Fo' they m ordered the 
matter, that all the whole Bible, (or the 
greMtat part thereof ihonld be read orer 
) every year ; latending thereby, that 
the Clergy, and capeciaUy luch aa were 
Miniiten in the congregation, ihould (by 
oftoi readings and meditation in Ood*! 
word) be Uirred up to godlhua them- 
aelree, and be more Mi to ezhoirt otheia 
by wholfliomo Doctrine, and to omlute 
them that were adTeruriet to the Tnith ; 
and further, that the people (by duly 
hearing of holy Scripture read in the 
Church) might cootiDiiaUy profit more 
more in the kiwwiedge of Ood, and 
be the man ''hff"v^ with the lore of his 



lut these many jtait pawed, thia godly 
decent Older of the andent Fatheie 
hath been >o altered, broken, and neglected, 
by planting in oncertain Stories, and Le- 
gendi, with multitude of Beepoodi, Venes 
Tain Bepetitioaa, Conunemoratione, and 
Synodal* ; that ecmmonly when any Bo(A 
of the Bible wa* begun, after three o' four 
Chapter* were read out, all the rsM were 
nnread. And in this lort the Book of 
Imiah wai begun in Adaeni, and the Book 
of Cenetb in Stpliiagt^oiai but they were 
(mly begun, and nerer nad throu^^ : After 
like eort wen other Bo<Ai of holy Scrip- 
tnreuaed. And mo r eo v er, whereai St-Ptml 
would haTB luch langnage epoluo to the 
people in the Church, ai they mi^ «d- 
deiMMid, aod havo profit by hearing the 

tei The Serrice In thii Chnrdi of 
Et^^and these many yean hath been read 
In Idtin to the peo^e, which they nnder- 
■tand not ; wa that they haTv beard with 



their ettT* only, end their heart, ipirit, and 
mind, have not been edified thereby. And 
furthermore, notwJthjtanding that the an- 
amt Father* hare divided the Ptalmt 
into wvea portionB, whereof every one 
wai oUled a Ntetura! Now of late time 
a few of them have been daily laid, and 
the reM utterly omitted. Htn«over, the 
number and hardnen of the Bnlei called 
the Pie, and the mani&iU changinga of 
the Service, wat the came, that to turn 
the Book (mly wai so hard and intricate a 
matter, that many times there was more 
bosineas to find out what should be read, 
than to read it when it wa* found out. 

These iDconvwienoEs therefore oensldsr- 
ed, here is set forth sudi an Order, where- 
by the nme ihall be redressed. And for 
a readintaa in this matter, here la drawn 
out a Calendar for that purpose, which is 
plain and easy to be undeaMood ; wbertin 
(so much as may be) the reading of holy 
Scripture is ao set forth, that all things 
shaU be done In order, without breeking 
one pieOB from another. For this cause be 
cut off *niTipm«, Responds, Inntatories, 
and tueh like thinga as did break the 
cmtinual eoune of the reading of the 
Scripture. 

Yet, because diere la no remedy, but 
that ofnecesaitydieremnst be some Rules ; 
therefore certain Rnlea are here set forth; 
which, aa they are fow in number, so they 
are plain and easy to be understood. So 
that here yon hare an Order for Pnyer, 
and for the reading of the holy Scripture, 
much agreeable to the mind and purpose 
of the M Fathers, and a great deal mora 
profitable and coomiodiou*, than that which 
of late was naed. It Is more profitable, 
because here are left out many things, 
whaieof aome are untrue, some unctttain, 
tome vain and nipantitiout ; and nothing 
is ordained to be read, but the very pure 
Word of God, the holy Scriptures, or th*t 
whidi is ^resabh 10 the saatei and that 
in such a language and Order as it most 
easy and plain for the understanding both 
of the Readers and Hearer*. It It also

that nothing can like them, but that ii 
new: it wai thought expedient, not bo 
much to hare reipect how to please and 
astiafy either of tliem partiei, ai how to 
pleaae God, and proBt them both. And 
yet ItBt any man ahould be offmded, 
in good rea«on might utitfy, here be 
ain cauiei readored, why aomA of the 
Bccualomed Ceremoniea be put away, and 
wme retained and k(^ itilL 

Some are put away, became the great 
Mceaa aod multitude of them hath ao in- 
creased in theae latter dayi, that t&e bui^ 
of them wai intolerable ; whereof SL 
jltiguttine in hii lame oomplained, that 
tbey were grown to mch a number, that 
the eelata of ChriatiBD peo;^ was'in wone 
oaw ODoceming that matter, than were 
the Jewa. Ajid he ouunielled that inch 
yoke and burden ehoold be taken away, 
ime would aerve quietly to do it. But 
what would St. jiuffU4tme hare said, if be 
li leen the Ceremoniea of late day> uted 
Hng ui ; whereunto the multitude need 
hie time waa not to be compared? This 
ir eioeerire multitude of Ceremoniea waa 
ao great, and many of tbem •» dark, that 
they did mine confound and darken, than 
declare and let forth Christ^ benefila un- 
» ua. And beaidea thia, Chrini Ooapel 
i« not a CerancHual Law (a* much of 
JViMM' Law wai) but it ia a Religion to 
« Oed, not in bondage of the figure 
or ihadow, but in the Ireedom of the Spi- 
; being GontcDt only with thoie Cere- 
iiiei which do urre to a decent Order 
and godly Diicipline, and iuch ii be apt to 
ir up the dull mind of man to the remtnt- 
brance of hii duty to Qod, by aome notable 
and ipedal aigniScation, whertity he might 
be edified. Furthermore, tha moat wei^ty 
a of the aboliahment of oertain Cere- 
ie* waa. That they were w &r abuted, 
partly by the aupeiatitioua blindneM of the 
rude and unlearned, and partly by the on- 
aatjable araiioe of *uch aa aouj^t more 
thnr own loere, than the gkny of God, 
that the abnaei could aot well be taken 
away, the thing remaining idlL 



But now at oooeeming- thote pentma 
whidi peradrcnture will be offended, ton 
that tome of the oild Ceremcmiei are re' 
tuned (till: If they oontider that wilb 
out gome Ceremoniea it la not poaaible tc 
keep any Order, or quiet Discipline in the 
Chundi, they ahaU eeaily pmocire juit 
canse to reform thmr judgment*. And if 
they *^™V much, that any of the old do 
remain, and would rather hare all denied 
anew: then tnch men granting some Ce- 
remtmiea oonreniait to bt had, mrely 
where the old may be well naed, there 
they cannot reaaonably reprove the old 
only for dieir age, withmit bewraying of 
their own fiilly. For in such a caae they 
ought rather to hare reveitnce unto t' 
Air their antiquity, if diey will declare 
of unity 

fanglenett, which (aa much aa maj 
with true aetting forth of Chriif* Reli- 
gion) ii alwayi to be eidiewed. Further- 
more, luch shall hare no just cause i 
the Ceremonies reaerred to be oSended. 
For H tboae be taken away which « 
moM atnued, and did burden men's < 
sciences without any cause ; so the other 
that remain, are reudned Gm* a discipline 
and order, which (upon just causes) may 
be altered and changed, and therefore are 
not to be estemned equal with God's Law. 
And moreorer, they be nniher dark n 
dumb Ceremonies, but are so set forth, 
that erery man nuiy understand what 
they do mean, and (o what use they do 
serre. So that it is not like that they ii 
time to come should be abased ai other 
have been. And In these our doings 
condemn no other Nations, nor prescribe 
any thing but to our own people only: 
For we think it omvenient that every 
Country should use such Ceremonies aa 
they it^ think best to the setting forth 
of God's honour and glory, and to the 
redodng of the people to a most perfi>ct 
and godly liring, without error or supei^ 
Btition; and tlttt tbey should put away 
other things, which from time to tim 
they pereeire to be moet abuaed, as i 
men's ordinanoea it often chanoeth dl- 
renly in divers countries.

And then he shall sa^ that which is mrilten afltrr Ike said Sentences. 

WHEN the wicked man turneth away 
from his wickedness that he hadi 
committed, and doeth that which is lawfiil 
and right, he shall save his soul aliye. 

I<]7ek. XTiii. 27. 

I acknowledge my transgressions, and 
my sin is ever before me. Vaim li. a 

Hide thy face from my sins, and blot 
out all mine iniquities. Psaim u. ». 

The sacrifices of God are a broken spi- 
rit : a broken and a contrite heart, O God, 
thou wilt not despise. Paaim u. 17. 

Bend your heart, and not your garments, 
and turn unto the Lord your God : for he 
is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, 
and of great kindness, and repenteth him 
of the evil. Joel a la 

To the Lord our God belong mercies 
and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled 
against him : neither have we obeyed the 
voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his 
laws which he set before us. Pan. ix. 9, la 

O Lord, correct me, but with judgement; 



MORNING PRAYER. 



not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to 

nothing. Jer. x. S4 FBalm vi 1. 

Bepent ye ; for the Kingdom of Heaven 
is at hand. . St Mattii. iji 2. 

I will arise, and go to my father, and will 
say unto him. Father, I have sinned against 
heaven, and before thee, and am no more 
worthy to be called thy son. 

StLniexv. 18,m 

Enter not into judgement with thy ser- 
vant, O Lord ; for in thy sight shall no man 
living be justified. Psalm cilia 2. 

If we say that we have no sin, we de- 
ceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us : 
but, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and 
just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us 
from all unrighteousness. 1 St. John i. a, ft 

DEARLY beloved brethren, the Scrip- 
ture moveth us in sundry places to 
acknowledge and confess our manifold sins 
and wickedness ; and that we should not 
dissemble nor cloke them before the faee of 
Almighty God our heavenly Father; but 
confess them with an humble, lowly, peni- 
tent, and obedient heart ; to the end that 
we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by 
his infinite goodness and mercy. And al- 
though we ought at all times humbly to ac- 
knowledge our sins before God ; yet ought 
we most chiefly so to do, when we assemble

and meet together to render thanks for the 
great benefits that we have received at his 
lands, to set forth his most worthy praise, 
to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those 
things which are requisite and necessary, 
as well for the body as the soul. Wherefore 
I pray and beseech you, as many as are 
here present, to accompany me with a pure 
heart, and humble voice, unto the throne 
of the heavenly grace, saying after me ; 

^ A general Confes^^m to fie said of the whole Congregation after 
the Minister^ all kneeling, 

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father ; 
. We have erred, and strayed from thy 
ways like lost sheep. We have followed 
too much the devices and desires of our 
own hearts. We have offended against thy 
holy laws. We have left undone those 
things which we ought to have done ; And 
we have done those things which we ought 
not to have done ; And there is no health 
in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon 
us, miserable offenders. Spare thou them, 
O God, which confess their faults. Restore 
thou them that are penitent ; According 
to thy promises declared unto mankind in 
Christ Jesu our Lord. And grant, O most 
merciful Father, for his sake ; That we 
may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and 
sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. 
Amen.

ALMIGHTY God, the Father of our 
Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not 
the death of a sinner, but rather that he 
may turn from his wickedness, and Kve ; 
and hath given power, and commandment, 
to his Ministers, to declare and pronounce 
to his people, being penitent, the Absolution 
and B«mission of their sins : He pardoneth 
and absolveth all them that truly repent, 
and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. 
Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us 
true repentance, and his holy Spirit, that 
those things may please him, which we do 
at this present ; and that the rest of our 
life hereafter may be pure, and holy ; so 
that at the last we may come to his eternal 
joy ; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

OUE Father, which art in heaven. Hal- 
lowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom 
come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is 
in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our trespasses. As we forgive 
them that trespass against us. And lead us 
not into temptation ; But deliver us from 
evil: For thine is the kingdom. The power, 
and the glory. For ever and ever.' Ajnen.

When your fathers tempted me : proved 
me, and saw my works. 

Forty years long was I grieved with

Almighty God our heavenly Father; but 
confess them with an humble, lowly, peni- 
tent, and obedient heart ; to the end that 
we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by 
his infinite goodness and mercy. And al- 
though we ought at all times humbly to ac- 
knowledge our ans before God ; yet ought

holy laws. We have left undone those 
things which we ought to have done ; And 
we have done those things which we ought 
not to have done ; And there is no health 
in us. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon 
us, miserable offenders. Spare thou them, 
O God, which confess their faults. Restore 
thou them that are penitent; According 
to thy promises declared unto mankind in 
Christ Jesu our Lord. And grant, O most

may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and

punished with like adversity, may likewise 
find a seasonable reUef : Increase the iruits

In the time of War and Tumults. 

ALMIGHTY God, King of aU kings, 
and Giovemour of all things, whose 
power no creature is able to resist, to 
whom it belongeth justly to punish sin-

repent ; Save and deUver us, we humbly

In the time of any common Plague or Sickness. 

ALMIGHTY God, who in thy wrath 
didst send a plague upon thine own 
people in the wilderness, for their obstinate 
rebellion against Moses and Aaron ; and 
also, in the time of king David, didst slay 
with the plague of Pestilence threescore 
and ten thousand, and yet remembering 
thy mercy didst save the rest ; Have pily 
upon us miserable sinners, who now are 
visited with great sickness and mortality;

this plague and grievous sickness ; through

ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Fa-

same, and at this time so guide and govern 
the minds of thy servants the Bishops and 
Pastors of thy flock, that they may lay hands

wisely make choice of fit persons to serve 
in the sacred Ministry of thy Church. And

mandment, it is briefly comprehended in this 
saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as

that, Icnowing the time, that now it is high time 
to awake out of sleep : for now is our salvation 
nearer than when we believed. The night is far 
spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast 
off the works of darkness, and let us put on the 
armour of light. Let us walk honestly as in the 
day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in 
chambering and wantonness, not in strife and 
envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, 
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfll the 
lusts thereof. 

THE GOSPEL. St. Matth. xxi. L 

WHEN they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and 
were come to Bethphage, unto the mount 
of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, saying 
unto them. Go into the village over against you, 
and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a 
colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto 
me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye 
shall say, The Lord hath, need of them ; and 
straightway he will send them. All this was 
done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken 
by the Prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of 
SioD, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, 
and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the fole of an 
ass. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus 
commanded them ; and brought the ass, and the 
colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set 
him thereon. And a very great multitude spread 
th«r garments in the way ; others cut down 
branches from the trees, and strawed them in 
the way. And the multitudes that went before, 
and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the 
son of David ; Blessed is he that cometh in the 
Name ijf the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. 



SECOND SUNDAY IN ADVENT. 

And when he was come into Jerusalem aU the 
city was moved, saying. Who is this ? And the 
multitude said, This is Jesus the Prophet of 
Nazareth of Galilee. And Jesus went into the 
temple of God, and cast out all them that sold 
and bought in the temple; and overthrew the 
tables of the money-changers, and the seats of 
them that sold doves; and said unto them, It is 
written. My house shall be called the house of 
prayer ; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

the Grentilea might glorify God for his mercy;

thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy 
Name. And again he saith. Rejoice, ye Gen- 
tiles, with his people. And again, Praise the 
Lord, ^1 ye Gentiles, and laud him, all ye peo- 
ple. And again, Esaias saith. There shall be a 
root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over 
the Gentiles, in him shall the Gentiles trust. Now 
the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in 
believing that ye may abound in hope, through 
the power of the Holy Ghost. 

THE GOSPEL. St. Luke xxi. S5. 

AND there shall be signs in the sun, and in 
, the moon, and in the stars ; and upon the 
earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea 
and the waves roaring ; men's hearts failing them 
for fear, and for looking after those things which 
are coming on the earth : for the powers of hea- 
ven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the 
Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and 
great glory. And when these things begin to 
come to pass, then look up, and lift up your 
heads ; for your redemption draweth nigh. And 
he spake to them a parable, Behold the fig-tree, 
and all the trees; when they now shoot forth, 
ye see and know of your own selves that summer 
is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye 
see these things come to pass, know ye that the 
Kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say 
unto you. This generation shall not pass away, 
till all be fulfilled: heaven and earth shall pass 
away ; but my words shall not pass away.

THE EPISTLE. 1 Cor. ir. I. 

LET a man so account of us, as of the min- 
isters of Christ, and stewards of the mys- 
teries of God. Moreover, it is required in stew- 
ards, that a man be found faithful. But with me 
it is a very small thing that I should be judged 
of you, or of man's judgement : yea, I judge not 
mine own self. For I know nothing by myself, 
yet am I not hereby justified ; but he that judg- 
eth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing 
before the time, until tiie Lord come, who both 
will bring to light the hidden things of dark- 
bess, and. will m^e manifest the counsels of the 
hearts; and then shall every man have praise of 
God.

John, What went ye out into the wilderness to 
see ? a reed shaken with the wind ? But what 
went ye out for to see ? a man clothed in soft rai- 
ment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are 
in kings' houses. But what went ye out for to 
see ? a prophet ? yea, I say unto you, and more

CHRISTMAS-DAY. 



THE GOSPEL, a. John i. 19- 

THIS is the record of John, when the Jews 
sent Priests and Levites from Jerusalem to 
ask him. Who art thou ? And he confessed, and 
denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. 
And they asked him. What then ? Art thou Elias ? 
And he saith, I am not. Art thou that Prophet ? 
And he answered. No. Then said they unto him, 
Who art thou? that we may give an answer to 
them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 
He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wil- 
derness. Make straight the way of the Lord, as 
said the prophet Esaias. And they which were sent 
were of the Pharisees. And they asked him, and 
said unto him. Why baptizest thou then, if thou be 
not that Christ, n<H* Elias, neither that Prophet ? 
John answered them, saying, I baptize with water : 
but there standeth one among you, whom ye know 
not : He it is who coming after me is preferred 
before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy 
to unloose. These things were done in Bethabara 
beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

THE EPISTLE. Heb. i. 1. 

GODt who at sundry times and in divers man- 
ners spake in time past unto the fathers by 
the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto 
us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all 
things, by whom also he made the worlds ; who 
being the brightne^ of his glory, and the express 
image of his person, and upholding all things by 
the word of his power, when he had by himself 
pui^^ our sins, sat down on the right hand of 
the Majesty on high; being made so much bet- 
ter than the angels, as he hath by inheritance 
obtained a more excellent name than they. For 
unto which of the angels said he at any time. 
Then art my Son, this day have I begotten thee ? 
And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall 
be to me a Son ? And again, when he bringeth 
in the first-begotten into the world, he saith. And 
let all the angels of God worship him. And of the 
angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, 
and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the 
Son he saith, Thy thi*one, O God, is for ever and 
ever ; a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of 
thy kingdom : Thou hast loved righteousness, and 
hated iniquity ; therefore God, even thy God, hath 
anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy 
fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast 
laid the foundation of the earth ; and the heavens 
are the works of thine hands : they shall perish, 
but thou remainest ; and they all shall wax old 
as doth a garment; and as a vesture shalt thou 
Md them up, and they shall be changed ; but 
thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. 



SAINT STEPHEN'S DAY. 



THE GOSPEL 8t. John I 1. 

IN the beginning was the Word, and the Word 
was with Grod, and the Word was God. The 
same was in the beginning with Grbd. All things 
were made by him ; and without him was not 
any thing made that was made. In him was 
life, and the life was the light of men. And the 
light shineth in darkness, and the darkness com- 
prehended it not. There was a man sent from 
God, whose name was John. The same came for 
a witness, to bear witness of the light, that all 
men through him might believe. He was not 
that light, but was sent to bear witness of that 
light. That was the true light, which lighteth 
every man that cometh into the world. He was 
in the world, and the world was made by him, 
and the world knew him not. He came unto 
his own, and his own received him not. But as 
many as received him, to them gave he power 
to become the sons of God, even to them that 
believe on his Name: which were bom, not of 
blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will 
6f man, but of God. And the Word was made 
flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his 

flory, the glory as of the only-begotten of the 
'atfaer) full of grace and truth. 

THE COLLECT.

here upon earth for the testimony of thy 
truth, we may stediastly look up to heaven, and

STEPHEN, being full of the holy Ghost, look- 
ed up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the 
glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right 
hand of God, and said. Behold, I see the heavens 
opened, and the Son of Man standing on the 
right hand of God. Then they cried out with 
a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran 
upon him with one accord, and cast him out of 
the city, and stoned him : and the witnesses laid 
down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose 
name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, call- 
ing upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, i-eceive my 
spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a 
loud voice. Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. 
And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

BEHOLD, I send unto you prophets, and wise

scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them 
irom city to city; that upon you may come all 
the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from 
the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of 
Zacharias, son of Barachlas, whom ye slew be- 
tween the temple and the altar. Verily I say 



SAINT JOHN THE EVANGELISTS DAY.

generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that 
killest the prophets, and stonest them which are 
sent unto thee ; how often would I have gathered 
thy children together, even as a hen gathereth 
her chickens under her wings, and ye would not ! 
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For 
I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth,

the light, we have fellowship one with another, 
and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth 
us from all 8in. 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.

JESUS said unto Peter, Follow me. Then Peter, 
turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus 
loved following ; which also leaned on his breast 
at supper, and said. Lord, which is he that be- 
trayeth thee? Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, 
Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith 
onto him. If I will that he tarry till I come, what 
is that to thee? Follow thou me. Then went 
this saying abroad among the brethren. That 
that disciple should not die : yet Jesus said not 
unto him, He shall not die ; but, If I will that he 
tarry till I come, what is that to thee ? This is 
the disciple which testifieth of these things, and 
wrote these things, and we know that his testi- 
mony is true. And there are also many other 
things which Jesus did, the which if they should 
be written every one, I suppose, that even the 
world itself could not contain the books that 
should be written.

I LOOKED, and lo, a. Lamb stood on the

written in their foreheads. And I heai'd a voice 
from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and 
as the voice of a great thunder : and I heard 
the voice of harpers harping with their harps: 
and they sung as it were a new song before 
the throne, and before the four beasts, and the 
elders; and no man could learn that song, but 
the hundred and forty and four thousand, which

THE birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise : 
When as his mother Mary was espoused to 
Joseph, before they came together she was found 
with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her 
husband, being a just man, and not willing to 
make her a publick example, was minded to put 
her away privily. But while he thought on these 
things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared 
unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph thou son of 
David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife ; 
for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy 
Ghost : And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou 
shalt call his name Jesds; for he shall save his 
people from their sins. (Now all this was done, 
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of 
the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a Virgin 
shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, 
and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which 
being interpreted is, God with us.) Then Joseph, 
being raised from sleep, did as the angel of tlie 
Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his 
wife; and knew her not till she had brought 
forth her first-bom son : and he called his name 
Jesus.

BLESSED is the man to whom the Lord will

reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. How 
was it then reckoned? when he was in circum- 
cision, or in uncircumcision ? Not in circumcision, 
but in uncircumcision. And be received the sign 
of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the 
&ith which he had yet being uncircumcised ; 
that he might be the father of all them that 
believe, though they be not circumcised; that 
righteousness might be imputed unto them also : 
And the father of circumcision to them who ai*e 
not of the circumcision only, but also walk in the 
steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which 
he had being yet uncircumcised. For the pro- 
mise, that he should be the heir of the world, was 
not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law,

also. When they had heard the king, they de-

called the sons of God : therefore the world 
kaoweth us not, because it knew him not. Be- 
loved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth 
not yet appear what we shall be : but we know, 
that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him ; 
for we shall see him as he is. And every man 
that hath this hope in him purifieth himseU^ even 
as he is pure. Whosoever committeth sin tran»- 
gresseth also the law : for sin is the transgression 
of the law. And ye know that he was mani- 
fested to take away our sins; and in him is no 
sin. Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: 
whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither 
known him. Little children, let no man deceive 
you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, 
even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin 
is of the devil : for the devil sinneth from the 
banning. For this purpose the Son of God was 
manifested, that he might destroy the works of 
the devil.

THEN if any man shall say unto you, Lo, 
here is Christ, or there ; believe it not. For 
there shall ai*ise false Christs, and false prophets,

the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.

Wherefore, if they shall say unto you, Behold, he

the Son of Man be. For wheresoever the carcase 
is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 
Immediately after the tribulation of those days 
shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall 
not give her light, and the stars shall fall from 
heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be 
shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the 
Son of Man in heaven : and then shall all the 
tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the 
Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven, with 
power and great glory. And he shall send his 
angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and 
they shall gather together his elect from the four 
winds, fi*om one end of heaven to the other.

THE kingdom of heaven is like unto a man

in the morning to hire labourers into his vine- 
yard. And when he had agreed with the labour- 
ers for a peny a day, he sent them into his vine- 
yard. And he went out about the third hour, 
and saw others standing idle in the market-place, 
and said unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard, 
and whatsoever is right I will give you. And 
they went their way. Again he went out about 
the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And 
about the eleventh hour he went out, and found 
others standing idle, and saith unto them. Why 
stand ye here all the day idle ? They say unto 
him. Because no man hath hired us. He saith 
unto them. Go ye also into the vineyard, and 
whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. So 
when even was come, the lord of the vineyard 
saith unto his steward. Call the labourers, and 
give them their hire, beginning from the last 
unto the first. And when they came that were 
hired about the eleventh hour, they received 
every man a peny. But when the first came, 
they supposed that they should have received 
more; and they likewise received every man a

side, and it was trodden down, and the fowls of 
the air devoured it. And some fell upon a rock, 
and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered 
away, because it lacked moisture. And some 
fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up 
with it, and choked it. And other fell on good 
ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hun- 
dred-fold. And when he had said these things, 
he cried. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of 
God : but to others in parables ; that seeing they 
might not see, and hearing they might not un- 
derstand. Now the parable is this : The seed is 
the Word of God, Those by the way-side are 
they that hear ; then cometh the devil, and tak- 
eth away the word out of their hearts, lest they 
should believe, and be saved. They on the rock 
are they, which, when they hear, receive the 
word with joy; and these have no root, which 
for a while believe, and in time of temptation 
fall away. And that which fell among thorns, 
are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, 
and are choked with cares, and riches, and plea- 
sures of this life, and bring no frnit to perfection. 
But that on the good ground, are they, which in 
an honest and good heart, having heard the word, 
keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

THOUGH I speak with the tongues of men

become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 
And liiough I have the gift of prophecy, and un- 
derstand all mysteries, and all knowledge ; and

tiioDgh I have all faith, so that I could remove 
mountains, and have no 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 en- 
vieth not ; charity vaunteth not itself, is not 
pu^d up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seek- 
eth not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh 
no evil, rejoiceth not in iniqui^, 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 c%ase ; whether there be knowledge, it shall 
vanish away. For we know in part, and we pro- 
phesy 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 gla^ 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.

And they which went before rebuked him, that 
he should hold his peace : but he cried so much 
the more. Thou Son of David, have mercy on 
me. And Jesus stood, and commanded him to 
foe brought unto him: and when he was come 
near, he asked him, saying. What wilt thou that 
I should do unto thee ? And he said, Lord, that 
I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto 
him, Receive thy sight ; thy faith hath saved 
thee. And immediately he received his sight, 
and followed him, glorifying God : and all the 
people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

THEN was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the 
wilderness, to be tempted of the devil. And 
when he had &sted forty days and forty nights, 
he \vaa afterward an-hungred. And when the 
tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the 
Son of God, command that these stones be made 
bread. But he answered and said, It is written, 
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every 
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 
Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, 
and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and 
saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast 
thyself down ; for it is written. He shall give his 
angels charge concerning thee, and in their hands 
they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou 
dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto 
him. It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt 
the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him 
up into an exceeding high mountain, and shew- 
etfa him all the kingdoms of the world, and the 
glory of them ; and saith unto him, All these 
things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down 
and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him. 
Get thee hence, Satan; for it is written. Thou

JESUS was casting out a devil, and it was 
dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil 
was gone out, the dumb spake ; and the people 
wondered. But some of them said. He casteth 
out devils through Beelzebub, the chief of the 
devils. And others, tempting him, sought of him 
a sign from heaven. But he, knowing their 
thoughts, said unto them. Every kingdom di- 
vided against itself is brought to desolation ; and 
a house divided against a house falleth. If Satan 
also be divided against himself, how shall his 
kingdom stand ? because ye say, that I cast out 
devils through Beelzebub. And if I by Beelze- 
bub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast 
them out? therefore shall they be your judges. 
But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, 
no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and

and they enter in, and dwell there ; and the last

Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat

he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, 
that these may eat ? (And this he said to prove 
him ; for he himself knew what he would do.) 
Philip answered him, Two hundred peny-worth

So the men sat down, in number about five thou-

and the disciples to them that were set down ; 
and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. 
When they were filled, he said unto his disciples. 
Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing 
he lost. Therefore they gathered them together,

flesh ; how much more shall the blood of Christ, 
who, through the eternal Spirit, oflered himself 
without spot to God, purge your conscience from 
dead works to serve the living Glod ? And for this 
cause he is the Mediator of the new testament, 
that by means of death, for the redemption of 
the transgi-essions that were under the first tes- 
tament, they which are called might receive the 
promise of eternal inheritance. 

THE GOSPEL. St. John viii. 46. 

JESUS said, Which of you convinceth me of 
sin ? and if I say the truth, why do ye not 
believe me ? He that is of God heareth God's 
words ; ye therefore hear them not, because ye 
are not of God. Then answered the Jews, and 
said unto him, Say we not well, that thou art a 
Samaritan, and hast a. devil ? Jesus answered, I 
have not a devil ; but I honour my Father, and 
ye do dishonour me. And I seek not mine own 
glory ; there is one that seeketh and judgeth. 
Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my 
saying, he shall never see death. Then said the 
Jews unto him. Now we know that thou hast a 
devil : Abraham is dead, and the prophets ; and 
thou sayest. If a man keep my saying, he shall 
never taste of death. Art thou greater than our 
falser Abraham, which is dead? and the pro- 
phets are dead : whom makest thou thyself? Je- 
sus answered. If I honour myself, my honour is 
nothing ; it is my Father that honoureth me, of 
whom ye say, that he is your God : yet ye have 
not known him ; but I know him : and if I should 
say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto 
you ; but I know him, and keep his saying. Your

&ther Abraham rejoiced to see my day, and he 
saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto 
him. Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast 
thou . seen Abraham ? Jesus said unto them, Ve- 
rily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, 
I am. Then took they up stones to cast at 
him : but Jesus hid himself, and went out of 
the temple.

THE COLLECT. 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who, of 
thy t^ider love towards mankind, hast 
sent thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ, to take 
upon him our flesh, and to suffer death upon 
the cross, that all mankind should follow the 
example of his great humility ; Mercifully grant, 
that we may both follow the example of his 
patience, and also be made partakers of his re- 
surrection; through the same Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

THE BFISTLE. Phil. ii. 5. 

L£T this mind be in you, which was also 
in Christ Jesus : who, being in the form of 
God, thought it not robbery to be equal with 
God; but made himself of no reputation, and 
took upon him the form of a servant, and was 
made in the likeness of men : and being found 
in &shion as a man, he humbled himself, and 
became obedient unto death, even the death of 
the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly ex- 
alted him, and given him a Name which is above 
every name; that at the Name of Jesus, every 
knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things 
in earth, and things under the earth ; and that

every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is 
Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 

THE GOSPEL. St. Matth. xxrii. 1. 

WHEN the morning was come, all the chief 
priests and elders of the pec^le took coun- 
sel against Jesus, to put him to death. And when 
they had bound him, they led him away, and 
delivered him to Pontius Pilate the govemour. 
Then Judas who had betrayed him, when he 
saw that he was condemned, repented himself, 
and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to 
the chief priests and elders, saying, I have sinned, 
in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And 
they said. What is that to us? see thou to that 
And he cast down the pieces of silver in the 
temple, and departed, and went and hanged him- 
self. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, 
and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the 
treasury, because it is the price of blood. And 
they took counsel, and bought with them the 
potter's field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore 
that field was called, The field of blood, unto this 
day. (Then was fulfilled that which was spoken 
by Jeremy the prophet, saying And they toc^ 
the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that 
was valued, whom they of the children of Israel 
did value, and gave them for the potter's field, 
as the Lord appointed me.) And Jesus stood 
before the govemour; and the governour asked 
him, saying. Art thou the King of the Jews? 
And Jesus said unto him. Thou sayest. And 
when he was accused of the chief priests and 
elders, he answered nothing. Then saith Pilate 
unto him, Hearest thou not how many things 
they witness against thee? And he answered 



SUNDAY NEXT BEFORE EASTER 

him to never a word, insomuoh that the gover- 
nour marrelled greatly. Now at that feast the 
governour was wont to release unto the people 
a prisoner, whom they would. And they had 
then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. There- 
fore when they were gathered together, Pilate 
said unto them. Whom will ye that I release unto 
you ? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ ? 
For he knew that for envy they had delivered 
him. When he was set down on the judgement- 
aeatf his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou 
nothing to do with that just man: for I have 
suffered many things this day in a dream be- 
cause of him. But the chief priests and elders 
persuaded the multitude that they should ask 
Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. The governour 
answered and said unto them. Whether of the 
twain will ye that I release unto you ? They 
said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them. What 
shall I do then with Jesus, which is called Christ ? 
They all say unto him» Let him be crucified. 
And the governour said. Why, what evil hath 
he done? But they cried out the more, saying. 
Let him be cruci^d. When Pilate saw that he 
could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult 
was made, he took water, and washed his hands 
before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of 
the blood of this just person : see ye to it. Then 
answered all the people, and said, His blood be 
on us, and on our children. Then released he 
Barabbas unto them : and when he had scourged 
Jesus he delivered him to be crucified. Then 
the soldiers of the governour took Jesus into 
the common hall, and gathered unto him the 
whole band of soldiers. And they stripped him, 



SUNDAY NEXT BEFORE EASTER 

and put on him a scarlet robe. And when they 
had platted a crown of thorns they put it upon 
his head^ and a reed in his right hand : and 
they bowed the knee before him, and mocked 
him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews. And they 
spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him 
on the head. And after that they had mocked 
him they took the robe off from him, and put 
his own raiment on him, and led him away to 
crucify him. And as they came out they found 
a man of Cyrene, Simon by name ; him they 
compelled to bear his cross. And when they 
were come unto a place called Golgotha, that 
is to say, a place of a scull, they gave him vine- 
gar to drink mingled with gall: and when he 
had tasted thereof, he would not drink. And 
they crucified him, and parted his garments, cast- 
ing lots: that it might be fulfilled, which was 
spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments 
among them, and upon my vesture did they cast 
lots. And sitting down they watched him there ; 
and set up over his head his accusation written, 
THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 
Then were there two thieves crucified with him ; 
one on the right hand, and another on the lefit. 
And they that passed by reviled him, wagging 
their heads, and saying, Thou that destroyest the 
temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself: 
if thou be the Son of God, come down from the 
cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking 
him, with the scribes and elders, said. He saved 
others, himself he cannot save : if he be the King 
of Israel, let him now come down &om the cross, 
and we will believe him. He trusted in God ; let 
him deliver him now, if he will have him : for he

sud» I am the Son of God. The thieves also^ 
which were raiicified with him, cast the same 
ia his teeth. Now from the sixth hour there 
was darkness over all the land unto the ninth 
hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried 
with a loud voice, saying, £li, Eli, lama saback- 
thani^ that is to say, My God, my God, why hast 
thou forsaken me ? Some of them that stood 
there, when they heard that, said. This man 
calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them 
ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vi- 
negar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to 
drink. The rest said. Let be, let us see whe- 
ther Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when 
he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up 
the ghost. And behold, the vail of the temple 
was rent in twain from the top to the bottom, 
and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent, 
and the graves were opened, and many bodies 
of saints which slept arose, and came out of the 
graves after his resurrection, and went into the 
holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when 
the centurion, and they that were with him, 
watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those 
thingB that were done, they feared greatly, say-> 
log. Truly this was the Sod of God.

treadeth in the wine-fat? I have trodden the 
wine-press idone, and of the people there was 
none with me: for I will tread them in mine 
anger, and trample them in my fury, and titeir 
blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and 
I will stain all my raiment. For the day of ven- 
geance is in mine heart, and the year of toy 
redeemed is come. And I looked, and there 
was none to help; and I wondered that there 
was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm 
brought salvation unto me, and my fury it up- 
held me. And I will tread down the people in 
mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, 
and I will bring down their strength to the 
earth. I will mention the lovii^-kindnesses of 
the Lord, and the praises of the Lord, according 
to all that the Lord hath bestowed on ns, and 
the great goodness towards the house of Israel, 
which he hath bestowed on them, according to 
his mercies, and according to the multitude of 
his loving-kindnesses. For he said. Surely they 
are my people, children that will not lie : so he 
was their Saviour. In all their affliction he was 
afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved 
them : in his love, and in his pity, he redeemed 
them, and he bare them, and carried them all 
the days of old. But they rebelled, and vexed 
his Holy Spirit; therefore he waa turned to be 
their enemy, and he fought against them. Then 
he remembered the days of old, Moses and his 
people, saying. Where is he that brought them 
up out of the sea with the shepherd of his 
flock ? where is he that put his Holy Spirit with- 
in him? that led them by the right hand of 
Moses, with his glorious arm, dividing the water

before them, to make himself an everlasting 
Name? that led them through the deep as an 
horse in the wilderness, that they should not 
stumble ? As a beast goeth down into the valley, 
the Spirit of the Lord caused him to rest: so 
didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a 
glorious Name. Look down from heaven, and 
behold from the habitation of thy holiness, and 
of thy glory : where is thy zeal, and thy strength, 
the sounding of thy bowels, and of thy mercies 
towards me? Are they restrained? Doubtless 
thou art our Father, though Abraham be igno- 
rant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not : Thou, 
O Lord, art our Father, our Redeemer, thy Name 
is from everlasting. O Lord, why hast thou made 
OS to err from thy ways? and hardened our 
h^rts from thy fear? Return for thy servants' 
sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. The people 
of thy hoUness have possessed it but a little 
while: our adversaries have trodden down thy 
sanctuary. We are thine : thou never barest 
rule over them ; they were not called by thy 
Name. 

THE GOSPEL. St. Mark xiv. l. 

AFTER two days was the feast of the Pass* 
. over, and of unleavened bread: and the 
chief priests and the scribes sought how they 
might take him by craft, and put him to death. 
Bat they said. Not on the feast-day, lest there be 
an uproar of the people. And being in Bethany, 
in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at 
meat, there came a woman having an alabaster 
box of ointment of spikenard, very precious ; and 
die brake the box, and poured it on his head. 
And there were some that had indignation with- 



MONDAY BEFORE EASTER. 



in themselves, and said, Why was this waste of 
the ointment made ? for it might have been sold 
for more than three hundred pence, and hare 
been given to the poor: and they murmured 
gainst her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; 
why trouble ye her ? she hath wrought a good 
work on me: for ye have the poor with you 
always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them 
good; but me ye have not always. She hath 
done what she could; she is come aforehand to 
anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say un- 
to you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preach- 
ed throughout the whole world, this also that she 
hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of 
her. And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went 
unto the chief priests to betray him unto them. 
And when they heard it they were glad, and 
promised to give him money. And he sought 
how he might conveniently betray him. And 
the first day of unleavened bread, when they 
killed the passover, his disciples said unto him. 
Where wilt thou that we go and prepare, that 
thou mayest eat the passover? And he sendeth 
forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, 
Gk> ye into the city, and there shall meet you 
a man bearing a pitcher of water ; follow him : 
And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the 
good-man of the house. The Master saith. Where 
is the guest-chamber, where I shall eat the pass- 
over with my disciples ? And he will shew you 
a large upper- room furnished, and prepared: 
there make ready for us. And his disciples 
went forth, and came into the city, and found 
as he had said unto them : and they made ready 
the passover. And in the evening he cometh 



MONDAY BEFORE EASTER 



with the twelve. And as they sat, and did eat, 
Jesns said. Verily I say unto you, One of you 
which eateth with me shall betray me. And 
they b^an to be sorrowfol, and to say unto him 
(Hie by one. Is it I? and another said. Is it I? 
And he answered and said unto them. It is one 
of the twelve that dippeth with me in the dish. 
The Son of Man indeed goeth, as it is written 
of him : but wo to that man by whom the Son 
of Man is betrayed : good were it for that man 
if he had never been born. And as they did 
eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, 
and gave to them, and said, Take, eat : this is 
my body. And he took the cup, and when he 
h^ given thanks he gave it to them : and they 
all drank of it. And he said unto them. This 
is my blood of the new testament, which is 
^ed for many. Verily I say unto you, I will 
drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until 
that day that I drink it new in the Kingdom 
of God. And when they had sung an hymn 
they went out into the mount of Olives. And 
Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be ofiended 
because of me this night: for it is written, I 
will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be 
scattered. But, after that I am risen, I will go 
before you into Galilee. But Peter said unto 
him. Although all shall be offended, yet will not 
I. And Jesus saith unto him. Verily I say unto 
thee. That this day, even in this night, before 
the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. 
But he spake the more vehemently. If I should 
die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. 
Likewise also said they all. And they came to 
a place which was named Gethsemane : and he

saith to bis disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall 
pray. And he taketh with him Peter, and James, 
and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to 
foe very heavy, and saith unto them. My soul is 
exceeding sorrowful unto death ; tarry ye her^ 
and watch. And he went forward a little, and 
fell on the ground, and prayed, that, if it were 
possible, the hour might pass from him. And 
he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible un- 
to thee; take away this cup from me; never- 
theless, not what I will, but what thou wilt 
And he cometh and findeth them sleeping, and 
saith unto Peter, Simon, steepest thou ? couldest 
not thou watch one hour? Watch ye and pray, 
lest ye enter into temptation: the spirit truly 
is ready, but the flesh is weak. And a^in he 
went away, and prayed, and spake the same 
words. And when he returned he found them 
asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) nei- 
ther wist they what to answer him. And he 
cometh the third time, and saith unto them, 
Sleep on now, and take your rest : it is enough, 
the hour is come ; behold, the Son of Man is 
betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise up, 
let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand. 
And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh 
Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great 
multitude with swords and staves, from the chief 
priests, and the scribes, and the elders. And he 
that betrayed him had given them a token, say- 
ing, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he ; 
take him, and lead him away safely. And as 
soon as he was come he goeth straightway to 
htm, and saith, Master, master ; and kissed him. 
And they laid their hands on him, and took 



MONDAY BEFORE EASTER 



him. And one of them that stood by drew a 
sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, 
and cut off his ear. And Jesus answered, and 
said unto them, Are ye come out as against a 
thief} with swords and with staves, to take me ? 
I was daily with you in the temple teaching, 
and ye took me not: but the Scriptures must 
foe fulfilled. And they all forsook him, and fled. 
And there followed him a certain young man, 
having a linen cloth cast about his naked body ; 
and the young men laid hold on him: and he 
left the Unen cloth, and fled from them naked. 
And they led Jesus away to the high priest : and 
with him were assembled all the chief priests, 
and the elders, and the scribes. And Peter fol- 
lowed him afer off, even into the palace of the 
high priest; and he sat with the servants, and 
warmed himself at the fire. And the chief priests 
and all the council sought for witness against 
Jesus to put him to death ; and found none. For 
many bare false witness against him, but their 
witness agreed not together. And there arose 
certain, and bare false witness against him, say- 
ing. We heard him say, I will destroy this temple 
that is made with hands, and within three days 
I will build another made without hands. But 
neither so did their witness agree together. And 
the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked 
Jesus, saying. Answered thou nothing ? what is 
it which these witness against thee? But he 
held his peace, and answered nothing. Again 
the high priest asked him, and said unto him, 
Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 
And Jesus said, I am ; and ye shall see the Son 
of Man sitting on the right hand of power, and 



TUESDAY BEFORE EASTER 



coming in the clouds of hearen. Then the high 
prieat rent his clothes, and saith, What need we 
any further witnesses ? ye have heard the blas- 
phemy : what think ye ? And they all condemned 
him to be guilty of death. And some began to 
spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet 
him, and to say unto him, Prophesy : and the 
servants did strike him with the palms of their 
hands. And as Peter was beneath in the palace 
there cometh one of the maids of the high priest ; 
and when she saw Peter warming himself she 
looked upon him, and said. And thou also wast 
with J^us of Nazai'eth. But he denied, saying, 
I know not, neither undei*stand I what thou 
sayest. And he went out into the porch ; and 
the cock crew. And a maid saw him again, and 
began to say to them that stood by. This is one 
of them. And he denied it again. And a little 
after, they that stood by said again to Peter, 
Surely thou art one of them; for thou art a 
Galilean, and thy speech agreeth thereto. But 
he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know 
not this man of whom ye speak. And the se- 
cond time the cock crew. And Peter called to 
mind the word that Jesus said unto him. Before 
the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. 
And when he thought thereon, he wept

AND straightway in the morning the chief 
priests held a consultation with the elders, 
and scribes, and the whole council, and bound 
Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him 
to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, Art thou the 
King of the Jews ? And he answering said unto 
him. Thou sayest it. And the chief priests ac- 
cused him of many things : but he answered no- 
thing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, An- 
swerest thou nothing ? behold how many things 
they witness against thee. But Jesus yet an- 
swered nothing : so that Pilate marvelled. Now 
at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, 
whomsoever they desired. And there was one 
named Barabbas, which lay bound with them 
that had made insurrection with him, who had 



TUESDAY BEFORE EASTER. 



committed murder in the insurrection. And the 
multitude, crying aloud, began to desire him to 
do as he had ever done unto them. But Pilate 
answered them, saying. Will ye that I release 
unto you the King of the Jews ? For he knew 
that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. 
But the chief priests moved the people, that he 
should rather release Barabbas unto them. And 
Pilate answ»*ed, and said again unto them, What 
will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye 
call the King of the Jews ? And they cried out 
again, Crucify him. Then Pilate said unto them, 
Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried 
out the moi'e exceedingly, Crucify him. And so 
Pilate, willing to content the people, released 
Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when 
he had scourged him, to be crucified. And the 
soldiers led him away into the hall, called Prse- 
torium ; and they call together the whole band. 
And they clothed him with purple, and platted 
a crown of thorns, and put it about his head : 
and began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews. 
And they smote him on the head with a reed, 
and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees 
worshipped him. And when they had mocked 
him they took off the purple from him, and put 
his own clothes on him, and led him out to 
crucify him. And they compel one Simon a Cy- 
renian, who passed by, coming out of the coun- 
try, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear 
his cross. And they bring him unto the place 
Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place 
of a scull. And they gave him to drink wine 
mingled with myrrh ; but he received it not 
And when they had crucified him they parted

hb garments, casting lots upon them, what every 
man should take. And it was the third hoUr, 
and they crucified him. And the superscription 
c^ his accusation was written over, THE KING 
OF THE JEWS. And with him they crucify 
two thieves, the one on his right hand, and the 
other on his left. And the scripture was ful- 
filled, which saith. And he was numbered with 
the transgressors. And they that passed by railed 
on him, waging their heads, and saying. Ah, 
thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it 
in three days, save thyself, and come down from 
the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mock- 
ing said among themselves, with the scribes. He 
saved others ; himself he cannot save. Let Christ 
the King of Israel descend now from the cross, 
that we may see and believe. And they that 
were crucified with him reviled him. And when 
the sixth hour was come, there was darkness 
over the whole land until the ninth hour. And 
at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, 
saying, Ehi, Elm, lama sabachthani ? which is, be- 
ing interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou 
forsaken me ? And some of them that stood by, 
when they heard it, said. Behold, he calleth Elias. 
And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, 
and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, 
saying. Let alone ; let us see whether Elias will 
come to take him down. And Jesus cried with 
a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the 
vail of the temple was rent in twain from the 
top to the bottom. And when the centurion, 
which stood over against him, saw that he so 
cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly 
this man was the Son of God. 



THE EPISTLE. Heb. ix. 16. 

WHERE a testament is, there must also of 
necessity be the death of the testator: 
for a testament is of force after men are dead ; 
otherwise it is of no strength at all whilst the 
testator liveth. Whereupon, neither the first tes- 
tament was dedicated without blood : for when 
Moses had spoken every precept to all the peo- 
ple, according to the law, he took the blood of 
calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, 
and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and 
all the people, saying. This is the blood of the 
testament, which God hath enjoined unto you. 
Moreover, he sprinkled with blood both the ta- 
bernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And 
almost all things are by the law pui^d with 
blood ; and without shedding of blood is no re- 
mission. It was therefore necessary that the pat- 
terns of things in the heavens should be. purified 
with these; but the heavenly things themselves 
with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not 
entered into the holy places made with hands, 
which ai*e the figures of the true, but into hea- 
ven itself, now to appear in the presence of God 
for us ; nor yet that he should ofi«r himself oftei^ 
as the high priest entereth into the holy place 
every year with blood of others : for then must 
he oA)en have suffered since the foundation of 
the world ; but now once in the end of the world 
hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice 
of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once 
to die, but after this the judgement : so Christ 
was once offered to bear the sins of many ; and 
unto them that look for him shall he appear the 
second time without sin unto salvation.

WEDNESDAY BEFORE EASTER 
THE GOSPEL. St. Luke xxii. 1. 

NOW the feast of unleavened bread drew 
nigh, which is called the Passover. And 
the chi^ priests and scribes sought how they 
might kill him ; for they feared the people. Then 
entered Satan into Judas sumamed Iscariot, be- 
ing of the number of the twelve. And he went 
his way, and communed with the chief priests 
and captains, how he might' betray him unto 
them. And they were glad, and covenanted to 
give him money. And he promised, and sought 
opportunity to betray him unto them in the ab- 
sence of the multitude. Then came the day of 
unleavened bread, when the passover must be 
killed. And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go 
and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. 
And they said unto him. Where wilt thou that 
we prepare? And he said unto them, Behold, 
when ye are entered into the city, there shall 
a man meet you, bearing. a pitcher of water; 
follow him into the house where he entereth 
in. And ye sh^l say unto the good-man of the 
house. The Master saith unto thee, Where is the 
guest-chamber, where I shall eat the passover 
with my disciples? And he shall shew you a 
lai^ upper room furnished; there make ready. 
And they went, and found as he had said unto 
them: and they made ready the passover. And 
when the hour was come he sat down, and the 
twelve Apostles with him. And he said unto 
them^ With desire I have desired to eat this 
passover with you before I suffer: for I say 
unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until 
it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God. And he 
todc the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take

this, and divide it among yourselves. For I say 
unto you, I will not diink of the fruit of the 
vine, until the Kingdom of God shall come. 
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake 
it, and gave unto them, saying. This is my body, 
which is given for you : this do in remembrance 
of me. Likewise fdso the cup after supper, say- 
ing. This cup is the new testament in my blood, 
which is shed for you. But behold, the hand 
of him that betrayeth me is with me on the 
table. And truly the Son of Man goeth as it 
was determined ; but wo unto that man by whom 
he is betrayed. And they began to enquire among 
themselves, which of them it was that should do 
this thing. And there was also a strife among 
them, which of them should be accounted the 
greatest. And he said unto th^m. The kings of 
the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and 
they that exercise authority upon them are call- 
ed benefactors. But .ye shall not be so: but he 
that is greatest among you, let him be as the 
younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth 
serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth 
at meat, or he that serveth ? is not he that sit- 
teth at meat? but I am among you as he that 
serveth. Ye are. they which have continued 
with me in my temptations. And I appoint 
unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath ap- 
pointed unto me; that ye may eat and drink 
at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones^ 
judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And the 
Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath de- 
sired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat : 
but I have prayed for thee, that thy faith iail 
not; and when thou art converted, strengthen

tity brethren. And he aaid unto him, Lord, I 
am ready to go with thee both into prison and 
to death. And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the 
oodE shall not crow this day, before that thou 
diah thrice deny that thou knowest me. And 
he said unto them, When I sent you without 
purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing ? 
And they said, Nothing. Then said he unto 
tiiem. But now, he that hath a purse, let him 
take it, and likewise his scrip : and he that hath 
no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy 
one. For I say unto you. That this that is 
written must yet be accomplished in me. And 
he was reckoned among the transgressors: for 
the things concerning me have an end. And 
they said. Lord, behold, here are two swords. 
And he said unto them, It is enough. And he 
came out, and went, as be was wont, to the 
mount of Olives, and his disciples also followed 
him. And when he was at the place, he said 
mito them. Pray, that ye enter not into tempta-- 
tion. And he was withdrawn from them about 
a stone's cast, and kneeled down and prayed, 
saying. Father, if thou be willing, remove this 
cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but 
thine be done. And there appeared an angel 
unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And 
being in an agony, he prayed more earnestly; 
and his sweat was as it were great drops of 
blood felling down to the ground. And when 
he rose up from prayer, and was come to his 
disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, 
and said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and 
pray, lest ye enter into temptation. And while 
he yet spake, behold, a multitude, and he that 



WEDNESDAY BEFORE EASTER 

was called Judas, one of the twelve, went be^ 
fore them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss 
him. But Jesus said unto him, Judas, foetrayest 
thou the Son of Man with a kiss ? When they 
who were about him saw what would follow* 
they said unto him. Lord, shall we smite with 
the sword? And one of them smote the ser- 
vant of the high priest, and cut off his ri^t 
ear. And Jesus answered and said. Suffer ye 
thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed 
him. Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, 
and captains of the temple, and the elders who 
were come to him, Be ye come out as against 
a thief, with swords and staves? When I was 
daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth 
no hands against me : but this is your hour, 
and the power of darkness. Then took they 
him, and led him, and brought him into the 
high priest's house : and Peter followed afiir off. 
And when they had kindled a fire in the midst 
of the hall, and were set down tc^ther, Peter 
sat down among them. But a certain maid be- 
held him, as he sat by the fire, and earnestly 
looked upon him, and said. This man was also 
with him. And he denied him, saying. Woman, 
I know him not. And after a little while an- 
other saw him, and said. Thou art also of them. 
And Peter said, Man, I am not. And about the 
space of one hour after, another confidently af- 
firmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was 
with him ; for he is a Galilean. And Peter said, 
Man, I know not what thou sayest. And im- 
mediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. 
And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter; 
and Peter remembered the word of the Lord,

how he had said unto him. Before the cock 
crow, thou idialt deuy me thrice. And Peter 
went out, and wept bitterly. And the men that 
held Jesus mocked him, and smote him. And 
when they had blindfolded him, they struck him 
on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, 
who is it that smote thee? And many other 
things blasphemously spake they against him. 
And as soon as it was day, the elders of the 
pet^le, and the chief priests, and the scribes, 
came together, and led him Into their council, 
saying. Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he 
said unto them^ If I tell you, ye will not be- 
lieve : and if I also ask you, ye will not answer 
me, nor let me go. Hereafter shall the Son of 
Man sit on the right hand of the power of God. 
Then sud they all. Art thou then the Son of 
God? And he said unto them. Ye say that I 
am. And they said, What need we any further 
witness ? for we ourselves have heard of his own 
month.

rT this that I declare unto you, I praise you 
not ; that ye come together not for the bet- 
ter, but for the worse. For first of all, when 
ye come tc^ther in the church, I hear that 
there be divisions among you, and I partly be- 
lieve it. For there must be also heresies among 
yon, that they who are approved may be made 
manifest among you. When ye come tt^ther 
therefore into one place, this is not to eat the 
I^ord's supper: for in eating every one taketh 
before other his own supper ; and one is hungry,

and another is drunken. What, have ye not 
houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye 
the church of God, and shame them that have 
not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise 
you in this? I praise you not. For I have re- 
ceived of the Lord that which also I delivered 
unto you, That the Lord Jesus, the same night 
in which he was betrayed, took bread ; and when 
he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, 
eat ; this is my body, which is broken for you : 
this do in remembrance of me. After the same 
manner also he took the cup, when he had sup- 
ped, saying, This cup is the new testament in 
my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in 
remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat 
this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the 
Lord's death till he come. Wherefore, whoso- 
ever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of 
the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of tha 
body and blood of the Lord. But let a man 
examine himself, and so let him eat of that 
bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eat- 
eth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drink- 
eth damnation to himself, not discerning the 
Lord's body. For this cause many are weak 
and sickly among you, and many ^eep. For if 
we would judge ourselves, we should not be 
judged. But when we are judged, we are chast- 
ened of the Lord, that we should not be con- 
demned with the world. Wherefore, my bre- 
thren, when ye come tt^ther to eat, tarry one 
for another. And If any man hunger, let him 
eat at home; that ye come not togethee unto 
condemnation. And the rest will I set in order 
when I come.

THE whole multitude of them arose, and 
led him unto Pilate. And they began to 
accuse him, saying, We found this fellow per- 
verting the nation, and forbidding to give tri- 
bute to Csesar, saying. That he himself is Christ 
a King. And Pilate asked him, saying, Art 
thou the King of the Jews? And he answered 
him, and said, Thou sayest it. Then said Pilate 
to the chief priests, and to the people, I find 
no fault in this man. And they were the more 
fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teach- 
ing throughout all Jewry, beginning from Gali- 
lee to this place. When Pilate heard of Galilee, 
he asked whether the man were a Galilean. 
And as soon as he knew that he belonged un- 
to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, 
who himself was also at Jerusalem at that time. 
And when Herod saw Jraus he was exceeding 
glad ; for he was desirous to see him of a long 
season, because he had heard many things of 
him ; and he hoped to have seen some miracle 
done by him. Then he questioned with him in 
many words; but he answered him nothing. 
And the chief priests and scribes stood and ve- 
hemently accused him. And Herod with his 
men of war set him at nou^t, and mocked 
him, and arrayed him in a goi^eous robe, and 
sent him again to Pilate. And the same day 
Pilate and Herod were made friends together; 
for before they were at emnity between them- 
selves. And Pilate, when he had called toge- 
tiier the chief priests, and the rulers, and the 
people, said unto them, Ye have brought this 
man unto me, as one that perverteth the peo-

pie : and behold, I, having examined him before 
you, have found no fault in this man touching 
those things whereof ye accuse him: No, nor 
yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and lo, no- 
thing worthy of death is done unto him. I will 
therefore chastise him, and release him. For of 
necessity he must release one unto them at the 
feast. And they cried out all at once, saying. 
Away with this man, and release unto us Beu 
rabbas: (who for a certain sedition made in 
the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.) 
Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake 
again to them. But they cried, saying, Crucify 
him, crucify him. And he said unto them the 
third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I 
have found no cause of death in him : I will 
therefore chastise him, and let him go. And 
they were instant with loud voices, requiring 
that he might be crucified: and the voices of 
them and of the chief priests prevailed. And 
Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they 
required. And he released imto them him that 
for sedition and murder was cast into prison, 
whom they had desired ; but he delivered Jesus 
to their wilL And as they led him away, they 
laid hold upon one Simon a Cyrenian, coming 
out of the country, and on him they laid the 
cro^ that he might bear it after Jesus. And 
there followed him a great company of people, 
and of women, which also bewailed and lament- 
ed him. But Jesus, turning unto them, said, 
Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but 
weep for yourselves, and for your children. For 
behold, the days are coming, in the which they 
shall say. Blessed are the barren, and the womlis

that never bare, and the paps which never gave 
suck. Then shall they begin to say to the moun- 
tuns. Fall on us; and to the hills. Cover us. 
For if they do these thiu^ in a green tree, 
what shall be done in the dry? And there were 
also two other, malefactors, led with him to foe 
put to death. And when they were come to 
the place which is called Calvary, there they 
crucified him; and the malefactors, one on the 
right hand, and the other on the left. Then said 
Jesus, Father, forgive them, for they know not 
what they do. And they parted his raiment, 
and cast lots. And the people stood beholding; 
and the rulers also with them derided him, 
saying. He saved others; let him save himself, 
if he be Christ, the chosen of God. And the 
soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and 
c^fering him vin^ar, and saying, If thou be the 
King of the Jews, save thyself. And a super- 
scription also was written over him in letters 
of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE 
KING OF THE JEWS. And one of the male- 
factors, which were hanged, railed on him, say- 
ing, If thou be Christ, save thyself, and us. But 
the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost 
not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same 
condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we 
receive the due reward of our deeds, but this 
man hath done nothing amiss. And he said un- 
to Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest 
into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, 
. Verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be 
with me in paradise. And it was about the 
sixth hour: and thei'e was a darkness over all 
the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun

was darkened* and the vail of the temple was 
rent in the midst. And when Jesus had cried 
with a loud voice, he said. Father, into thj 
hands I commend my spirit : and having said 
thus, he gave up the ghost. Now when the 
centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, 
saying. Certainly this was a righteous man. And 
all the people that came together to that sight, 
beholding the things that were done, smote their 
breasts, and returned. And all his acquaintance, 
and the women Uiat followed him from Galilee, 
stood afar o£^ beholding these things.

THE low having a shadow of good things 
to come, and not the very image of the 
things, can never with those sacrifices, which 
they offered year by year continually, make the 
comers thereunto perfect: for then would they 
not have ceased to be offered ? because that the 
worshippers once purged should have had no 
more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices 
there is a remembrance again made of sins every 
yeu*. For it is not possible that the blood of 
bulls and of goats should take away sins. Where- 
fore, when he cometh into the world, he saith. 
Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a 
body hast thou prepared me : In burnt-offerings 
and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure : 
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the 
book it is written of me) to do thy will, O God. 
Above, when he said, Sacrifice and offering, and 
bumt-offerings, and offering for sin thou would- 
est not, neither hadst pleasure therein, which 
are offered by the Law : then said he, Lo, I 
f»me to do thy will, O God. He taketh away 
the first, that he may establish the second. By 
the which will we are sanctified, through the 
oflS»ing of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

And every priest standeth daily miniBtering, and 
offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can 
never take away sins. But this man, after he 
had offered one sacrifice for sins, for ever sat 
down on the right hand of God ; from hence- 
forth expecting till his enemies be made his 
foot-stool. For by one offering he hath perfect- 
ed for ever them that are sanctified: AVhereof 
the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us : for after 
that he had said before. This is the covenant 
that I will make with them after those days, 
saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their 
hearts, and in their minds will I write them ; 
and their sins and iniquities will I remember no 
more. Now whei*e remission of these is, there 
is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, 
brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by 
the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, 
which he hath consecrated for us, through the 
vail, that is to say, hia flesh ; and having an 
High Priest over the house of God ; let us draw 
near with a true heart, in full assurance of faith, 
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil con- 
science, and oar bodies washed with pure water. 
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith with- 
out wavering; (for he is faithful that promis- 
ed ;) and let us consider one another to provoke 
unto love, and to good works ; not forsaking the 
assembling of ourselves together, as the manner 
of some is ; but exhorting one another : and so 
much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the 
Jews: imd they smote him with their hands. 
Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith nn- 
to them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that 
ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then 
came Jeaus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, 
and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them. 
Behold the man ! When the chief priests there- 
fore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, 
Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith uuto them, 
Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no 
feult in him. The Jews answered him, We have 
a law, and by our law . he ought to die, because 
he made himself the Son of God. When Pilate 
therefore heard that saying, he was the more 
afraid ; and went again into the judgement-hall, 
and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou ? But Je- 
sus gave him no answer. Then saith Pilate uuto 
him, Speakest thou not unto me ? knowest thou 
not that I have power to crucify thee, and have 
power to release thee? Jesus answered. Thou 
couldest have no power at all against me, except 
it veve given thee fi>om above: therefore he 
that delivered me unto thee hath the greater 
sin. And from thenceforth Pilate sought to re- 
lease him : but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou 
let this man go, thou art not Ceesar's friend: 
whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh a- 
gainst Cffisar. When Pilate therefore heard that 
saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in 
the judgement-seat, in a place that is called the 
Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And 
it was the preparation of the p^sover, and about 
the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Be- 
hold your King ! But they cried out. Away with

him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith 
uQto them, Shall I crucify your King ? The diief 
priests answered, We have no kii^ but Csesar. 
Then delivered he him therefore unto them to 
be crucified : and they took Jesns, and led him 
away. And he, bearing his cross, went forth 
into a place called the place of a scull, which 
is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha: where they 
crucified him, and two other with him, on either 
side one, and Jesus in the midst. And Pilate 
wrote a title, and put it on the cross ; and the 
writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE 
KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read 
many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus 
was crucified was nigh to the city : and it was 
written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then 
said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write 
not. The King of the Jews ; but that he said, I 
am the King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What 
I have written, I have wntten. Then the std- 
diers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his 
garments, and made four paits, to every soldier 
a part; and also his coat: now the coat was 
without seam, woven from the top throughout. 
They said therefore among themselves. Let us 
not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall 
foe : that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which 
saith. They parted my raiment among them, 
and for my vesture they did cast lots. Th^e 
things therefore the soldiers did. Now there 
stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his 
mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and 
Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw 
his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom i 
he loved, he saith unto Ids mother. Woman, be-

hold thy son. Then Baith he to the disciple, Be- 
hold thy mother. And from that hour that dis- 
ciple took her unto his own home. After this, 
Jesus, knowing that all things were now accom- 
plished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, 
saith, I thirst. Now there was set a vessel full 
of Tin^ar: and they filled a spunge with vi- 
negar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his 
mouth. When Jesus therefore had received the 
vin^ar, he said. It is finished : and he bowed his 
head, and gave up the ghost. The Jews there- 
fore, because it was the preparation, that the 
bodies should not remain upon the cross on the 
sabbath-day, (for that sabbath-day was an high- 
day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be 
broken, and that they might be taken away. 
Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of 
the first, and of the other which was crucified 
with him. But when they came to Jesus, and 
saw that he was dead already, they brake not 
his legs. But one of the soldiers with a spear 
pierced his side, and forthwith came thereout 
blood and water. And he that saw it bare re- 
cord, and his record is true: and he knoweth 
that he saith true, that ye might believe. For 
these things were done that the Scripture should 
be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 
And again, another Scripture saith. They shall 
k»ok on him whom they pierced.

IT is better, if the will of God be so, that 
ye suffer for well-doing, than for evil-doing. 
For Chi*i8t also hath once suffered for sios, the

God, being put to death in the flesh, but quick- 
ened by the Spirit. By which also he went and 
preached unto the spirits in prison ; whidi some- 
time were disobedient, when once the longnsuf- 
fering of God waited in the days of Noah, while 
the ark was a preparing; wherein few, that 
is, eight souls, were saved by water. The like 
figure whereunto, even baptism, doth also now 
save us, (not the putting away the filth of the

wards God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ :

Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And 
when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped 
it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own 
new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock ; 
and he rolled a great stone to the door of the 
sepulchre, and departed. And there was Mary

rise again. Command therefore that the sepul-

say unto the people. He is risen from the dead : 
so the last error shall be worse than the first. 
Pilate said unto them. Ye have a watch; go 
your way, make it as sure as you can. So they 
went and nuide the sepulchre sure, sealing the

PETER Opened his mouth, and said. Of a 
truth I perceive that God is no respecter 
of persons ; but in every nation he that feareth 
him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with 
him. The word which God sent unto the chil- 
dren of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ ; 
(he is Lord of all ;) that word (I say) ye know, 
which was published throughout all Judsea, and 
began from Galilee, after the baptism which John 
preached : how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth 
with the Holy Ghost, and with power; who 
went about doing good, and healing aU that 
were oppressed of the devil : for God was with 
him. And we are witnesses of all things which 
he did, both in the land of the Jews, and in 
Jerusalem; whom they slew, and hanged on a 
tree : Him God raised up the third day, and 
shewed him openly; not to all the people, but 
unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to u^ 
who did eat and drink with him after he rose 
from the dead. And he commanded us to preach 
unto the people, and to testify that it is he who 
was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick 
and dead. To him give all the prophets witness, 
that through his Name whosoever believeth in 
him shall receive remission of sins.

BEHOLD, two of his disciples went that same 
day to a village called Enunaus, which was 
from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And 
they talked together of all these things which 
had happened. And it came to pass, that while 
they communed together, and reasoned, Jesus 
himself drew near, and went with them. But

their eyes were holden, that they should not 
know hun. And he said unto them, What man- 
ner of communications are these that ye have 
one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? And 
the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, an- 
swering, said unto him. Art thou only a stranger 
in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things 
which are come to pass there in these days? 
And he said unto them, What things ? And they 
said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, 
who was a prophet mighty in deed and word, 
before God and all the people : and how the 
diief priests and our rulers delivered him to he 
condemned to death, and have crucified him. But 
we trusted that it had been he which should 
have redeemed Israel: and besides all this, to- 
day is the third day since these things were 
done. Yea, and certain women also of our com- 
pany made us astonished, which were early at 
the sepulchre ; and when they found not his 
body, they came, saying, that they had also seen 
a vision of uigels, which said that he was alive. 
And certain of tfaem which were with us went 
to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the 
women had said ; but him they saw not. Then 
he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart 
to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 
ought not Christ to have suffered these things, 
and to enter into hia glory ? And beginning at 
Moses, and all the prophete, he expounded unto 
them in all the Scriptiires the things concerning 
himself. And they drew nigh unto the village 
whither they went ; and he made as though he 
would have gone further : but they constrained

in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as 
he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and 
blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And 
their eyes were opened, and they knew him, and 
he vanished out of their sight. And they said one 
to another. Did not our heart bum within us, 
while he talked with us by the way, and while 
he opened to us the Scriptures ? And they rose 
up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and 
found the eleven gathered together, and them 
that were with them, saying, The Lord is risen 
indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. And they 
told what things were done in the way, and how 
he was known of them in breaking of bi*ead.

in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should

was written of him, they took him down from 
the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre. But God 
nused him from the dead : and he was seen 
many days of them which came up with him 
from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses

corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you 
the sure mercies of David. Wherefore he saith 
also in another Psidm, Thou shalt not suffer 
thine Holy One to see corruption. For David, 
after he had served his own generation by the 
will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his 
fitthers, and saw corruption : But he whom God 
raised again saw no corruption. Be it known un- 
to you therefore, men and brethren, that through

JESUS himself stood in the midst of them* 
and saith ante them. Peace he unto you. But 
they were terrified and afirighted, and supposed 
that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto 
them. Why are ye troubled, and why do thoughts 
arise in your hearts ? Behold my hands and my 
feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see ; for 
a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me 
have. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed 
them his hands and his feet. And while they 
yet beUeved not for joy, and wondered, he said 
unto them, Have ye here any meat ? And they 
gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an 
honey-comb. And he took it, and did eat be- 
fore them. And he said unto them, These are 
the words which I spake unto you, while I was 
yet with you, that all things must foe fulfilled 
which were written in the law <^ Moses, and in 
the Prophets, and in the Psalms concerning me. 
Then opened he their understanding, that they 
might understand the Scriptures, and said unto 
them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved 
Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the 
third day ; and that repentance and remission of 
sins should be preached in his Name among all 
nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are wit*

JESUS appeared unto the eleven as they sat

was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into

creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall 
be saved ; but he that believeth not shall be 
damned. And these signs shsiW follow them that 
believe : In my Name shall they cast out devils ; 
they shall speak with new tongues ; they shall 
take up serpents ; and if they drink any deadly 
thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay 
hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So 
then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he

but ye see me : because I live, ye shall live also. 
At that day ye shall know, that I am in my

hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he

be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and 
will manifest myself to him. Judas saith unto

him, and make our abode with him. He that 
loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the

Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the 
Father will send in my Name, he shall teach 
you all things, and bring all things to your re- 
membrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto 
you : not as the world giveth, give I unto you; 
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it 
be afraid. Ye have heard how I said unto you, 
I go away, and come again unto you. If ye 
loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go 
unto the Father : for my Father is greater than 
I. And now I have told you before it come to 
pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might 
believe. Hereafter I will not talk much with 
you : for the prince of this world cometh, and 
hath nothing in me. But that the world may 
know that I love the Father ; and as the Father 
gave me commandment, even so I do.

THEN Peter opened his mouth, and said. Of 
a truth I perceive that God is no respecter 
of persons ; but in every nation he that feareth 
him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with 
him. The Word which God sent unto the chil- 
dren of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ ; 
(he is Lord of all ;) that Word, I say, ye know, 
which was published throughout all Judeea, and 
b^an from Galilee after the baptism which 
John preached : how God anointed Jesus of Na- 
ziu'eth with the Holy Ghost, and with power; 
who went about doing good, and healing all 
that were oppressed of the devil : for God was 
with him. And we are witnesses of all things 
which he did, both in the land of the Jews, and 
in Jerusalem ; whom they slew, and hanged on 
a tree: Him God raised up the third day, and 
shewed him openly; not to all the peopl*), but 
unto witnesses chosen before of Giod ; even to 
us who did eat and drink with him after he 
rose from the dead. And he commanded us to 
preach unto the people, and to testify that it is 
he which was ordained of God to be the Judge 
of quick and dead. To him give all the prophets 
witness, that through his Name whosoever be- 
lieveth in him shall receive remission of sins. 
While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy 
Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 
And they of the circumcision, which believed, 
were astonished, aa many as came with Peter,

Then answered Peter, Can any man forbid wa-

he commanded them to be baptized in the Name 
of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry

world to condemn the world, but that the world 
through him might be saved. He that belier-

lieveth not is condemned already ; because he 
hath not believed in the Name of the only-be-

loved darkness rather than light, because their

there was a rainbow round about the throne,

upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders 
sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had 
on their heads crowns of gold : and out of the 
throne proceeded lightnings, and thunderings,

in the midst of the throne, and round ab(mt the

behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and 
the second beast like a calf, and the third beast 
had a ^e as a man, and the fourth beast was

each of them six wings about him ; and they 
were full of eyes within : and they rest not day

And when those beasts give glory, and honour,

verily I say unto thee. We speak that we do

BELOVED, let us love one ajaother : for love 
is of God, and every one that loveth is born 
of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not 
knoweth not God ; for God is love. In this was 
manifested the love of God towards us, because 
that God sent his only-begotten Son into the 
world, that we might live through him. Here- 
in is love, not that we loved God, but that he 
loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation 
for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we 
ought also to love one another. No man bath 
seen Gf)d at any time. If we love one another, 
God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in 
us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and 
he in us; because he hath given us of his Spi- 
rit. And we have seen, and do testify, that the 
Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the 
world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is 
the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he 
in God. And we have known and believed the 
love that God hath to us. God is love ; and he 
that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God 
in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that 
we may have boldness in the day of judgement ; 
because as he is, so are we in this world. There 
is no fear in love ; but perfect love casteth out 
fear; because fear hath torment: He that fear- 
eth is not made pei'fect in love. We love him, 
because he first loved us. If a man say, I love 
God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for 
he that loveth not his brother, whom he hath 
seen, how can he love God, whom he hath not 
seen ? And this commandment have we from him, 
That he who loveth God love his brother also.

THERE was a certain rich man, which was

bis gate full of sores, and desiring to be fed with 
the crumbs, which fell from the rich man's table : 
moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores. 
And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and 
was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. 
The rich man also died, and was buried : and 
in hell he lift up his eyes being in torments, and 
seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bo- 
som. And he cried and said. Father Abraham, 
have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may 
dip iJie tip of his finger in water, and cool my 
tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But 
Abraham said. Son, remember that thou in thy 
life-time receivedst thy good things, and likewise 
Lazarus evil things ; but now he is comforted, 
ukd thou art tormented. And besides all this, 
between us and you there is a great gulf fixed : 
so that they who would pass from hence to you 
cannot'; neither can they pass to us, that would 
come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee 
therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to 
my father's house : for I have five brethren ; that 
he may testify unto them, lest they also come into 
this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him. 
They have Moses and the prophets ; let them 
hear them. And he said. Nay, father Abraham ; 
but if one went unto them from the dead, they 
will repent. And he said unto him. If they hear 
not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be 
persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

IT came to pass, that as the people pressed 
upon him to hear the Word of God, he stood 
by the lake of Gennesareth, and saw two ships 
standing by the lake ; but the fishermen were 
gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 
And he entered into one of the ships, which was 
Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust 
out a little irom the land : and he sat down, and 
taught the people out of the ship. Now when 
he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch 
out into the deep, and let down your nets for a 
drao^t. And Simon answering said unto him,

and their net brake. And they beckoned unto 
their partners which were in the other ship, 
that they should come and help them. And they 
came, and filled both the ships, so that they be- 
gan to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell 
down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me, 
for I am a sinful man, O Lord. For he was as-

draught of the &hes which they had taken ; 
and so was also James, and John, the sons of 
Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And 
Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not, from hence-

had brought their ships to land, they forsook 
all, and followed him.

TO Abraham and his seed were the promises

was confirmed before of God in Christ, the Law, 
which was four hundred and thirty years after, 
cannot disannul, that it should make the promise 
of none effect. For if the inheritance be of the 
Law, it is no more of promise ; but God gave it 
to Abraham by promise. Wherefore then serv- 
eth the Law? It was added because of trans- 
gressions, till the seed should come, to whom 
the promise was made ; and it was ordained by 
angels in the hand of a mediator. Now a me- 
diator is not a mediator of one ; but God is one. 
Is the Law then against the promises <tf God ?

NO man can serve two masters: for either 
he will hate the one, and love the other; 
or else he will hold to the one, and despise 
the other. Ye cannot serve God and Manunon. 
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for 
your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall 
drink ; nor yet for your body, what ye shall 
put on: Is not the life more than meat, and 
the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of 
the air ; for they sow not, neither do they reap» 
nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Fa^ 
ther feedeth them. Are ye not much better than 
they ? Which of you by taking thought can add 
one cubit unto his stature ? And why take ye 
thought for raiment ? Consider the lilies of the 
field how they gi'ow: they toil not, neither do 
th^ spin : and yet I say unto you, That even 
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like 
one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the 
grass of the field, which to-day is, and to-mor- 
row is cast into the oven; shall he not much 
more clothe you, O ye of little faith ? Therefore 
take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or 
what shall we drink ? or wherewithal shall we

rr came to pass, as Jesus went into the house

Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath-day? And

healed him, and let him go ; and answered them, 
saying, Which of you shall have an ass, or an

not answer him again to these things. And he 
put forth a parable to those which were bid-

bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down 
in the highest room ; lest a more honourable

bade thee and him come and say to thee. Give 
this man place; and thou begin with shame to

WHEN the Pharisees had heard that Jesus

were gathered tc^ther. Then one of them, 
who was a Lawyer, asked him a question, tempt-

commandment in the Law ? Jesus said unto him, 
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy 
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy 
mind. This is the first and great command- 
ment. And the second is like unto it. Thou 
shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these 
two commandments hang all the Law and the 
Prophets. While the Pharisees were gathered

ye of Christ ? whose son is he ? They say unto 
him, The son of David. He saith unto them, 
How then doth David in spirit call him Lord,

into the high-ways, and gathered together all, 
as many as they found, both bad and good ; and 
the wedding was furnished with guests. And 
when the king came in to see the guests, he 
saw there a man which had not on a wedding-

earnest thou in hither, not having a wedding-

THE EPISTLE. Rom. x. 9. 

IF thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord 
Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that 
God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt 
be saved. For with the heart man believeth 
unto righteousness, and with the mouth con- 
fession is made unto salvation. For the Scrip- 
ture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not 
be ashamed. For there is no difference between 
the Jew and the Greek : for the same Lord over 
all is rich unto all that call upon him. For who- 
soever shall call upon the Name of the Lord 
shall be saved. How then shall they call on 
him, in whom they have not believed ? And 
how shall they believe in him, of whom they 
have not heard ? And how shall they hear with- 
out a preacher? And how shall they preach, 
except they be sent? As it is written, How 
beautiful are the feet of them that preach the 
Gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good 
things! But they have not ^1 obeyed the Gos*' 
pel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed 
our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, 
and hearing by the Word of God. But I say. 
Have they not heard ? Yes verily, their sound 
went into all the earth, and theiir words unto 
the ends of the world. But I say. Did not Israel 
know? Fii-st Moses saith, I will provoke ytou 
to jealousy by them that are no people, and by 
a foolish nation I will anger you. But Esaias 
is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that

THE GOSPEL. St-Matth. iv. 18. 

JESUS, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two 
brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew 
his brother, casting a net into the sea, (for they 
were fishers;) and he saith unto them, Follow 
me ; and I will make you fishers of men. And 
they straightway left their nets, and followed 
him. And going on ^m thence he saw other 
two brethren, James the son of Zebedee» and 
John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their 
father, mending their nets ; and he called them. 
And they immediately left the ship and their 
father, and followed him.

ALMIGHTY and everliving God, who for

suffer thy holy Apostle Thomas to be doubtful 
in thy Son's resurrection ; Grant us so perfectly, 
and without all doubt, to believe in thy Son Jesus 
Christ, that our faith in thy sight may never

THOMAS, one of the twelve, called Didymns, 
was not with them when Jesus came. The 
other disciples therefore said unto him. We have 
seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except 
I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, 
and put my finger into the print of the nails, 
and thrust my hand into his side, I will not be- 
lieve. And after eight days again his disciples 
were within, and Thomas with them : then came 
Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the 
midst, and said. Peace be unto you. Then saith 
he to Tl^omas, Reach hither thy finger, and be- 
hold my hands ; and reach hither thy hand, and 
thrust it into my side ; and be not faithless, but 
believing. And Thomas answered and said unto 
him. My Lord, and my God. Jesus saith unto 
him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou 
hast believed; blessed are they that have not 
seen, and yet have believed. And many other 
signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his dis- 
ciples, which are not written in this book. But 
these are written, that ye might believe that 
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that 
believing ye might have life through his Name.

FOB THE EPISTLE. Acts ix. I. 

A ND Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and 
XjL slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, 
went unto the high priest, and desired of him 
letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that, if 
he found any of this way, whether they were 
men or women, he might bring them bound 
unto Jerusalem. And, as he journeyed, he came 
near Damascus, and suddenly there shined round 
about him a light irom heaven. And he fell to 
the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, 
Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he 
said, Who art thou. Lord? And the Lord said, 
I 'am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard 
for thee to kick against the pricks. And he, 
tremblii^ and astonished, said. Lord, what wilt 
thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto 
him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be 
told thee what thou must do. And the men 
which journeyed with him stood speechless, hear- 
ing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose 
from the earth, and when his eyes were opened 
he saw no man ; but they led him by the hand, 
and brought him into Damascus. And he was 
three days without sight, and neither did eat 
nor drink. And there was a certain disciple at 
Damascus, named Ananias, and to him said the 
Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, 
I am here. Lord. And the Lord said unto him. 



CONVERSION OF SAINT PAUL. 

Arise, and go into the street which is called 
Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for 
one called Saul, of Tarsus : for behold, he pray- 
eth, and hath seen in a vision a man named 
Ananias, coming in, and putting his hand on 
him, that he might receive his sight Then 
Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many 
of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy 
saints at Jerusalem ; and here he hath authority 
from the chief priests to bind all that call on 
thy Name. But the Lord said unto him, Go thy 
way ; for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear 
my Name before the Gentiles, and kings, and 
the children of Israel : for I will shew him how 
great things he must suffer for my Name's sake. 
And Ananias went his way, and entered into the 
house ; and, putting his hands on him, said, Bro- 
ther Saul, the Lord, (even Jesus that appeared 
unto thee in the way as thou camest,) hath sent 
me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be 
filled with the holy Ghost. And immediately 
there fell from his eyes as it had been scales; 
and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and 
was baptized. And when he had received meat, 
he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain 
days with the disciples which were at Damas- 
cus. And straightway he preached Christ in the 
synagogues, that he is the Son of God. But all 
that heard him were amazed, and said. Is not 
this he that destroyed them which called on this 
Name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that in- 
tent, that he might bring them bound unto the 
chief priests ? But Saul increased the more in 
strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt 
at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ

IN those days Peter stood up in the midst of 
the disciples, and said, (the number of the 
names together were about an hundred and 
twenty,) Men and brethren, this Scripture must 
needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost 
by the mouth of David spake before concern- 
ing Judas, which was guide to them that took 
Jesus : for he was numbered with us, and had 
obtained part of this ministry. Now this man 
purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; 
and falling headlong he burst asunder in the 
midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it 
was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem, 
insomuch as that field is called in their proper 
tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of 
blood. For it is written in the book of Psalms, 
Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man 
dwell therein; and. His bishoprick let another 
take. Wherefore, of these men which have com- 
panied with us all the time that the Lord Jesus 
went in and out among us, beginning from the 
baptism of John, unto that same day that he 
was taken up from us, must one be ordained to 
be a witness with us of his resurrection. And 
they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who 
was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they 
prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest 
the hearts of all men, shew whether of these 
two thou hast chosen ; that he may take part 
of this ministry and apostleship, fr<»n which 
Judas by tran^ession fell, that he might go to

and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was num-

AT that time Jesus answered and said, I thank 
. thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, 
because thou hast hid these things from the wise 
and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. 
Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in thy 
sight. All things are delivered unto me of my 
Father : and no man knoweth the Son, but the 
Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, 
save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son 
will reveal him. Come unto me, all ye that la- 
bour and are heavy laden, and I will give you

came in unto her, and. said. Hail, thou that art 
highly favoured, the Lord is with thee; blessed 
art thou among women. And when she saw him 
she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her 
mind what manner of salutation this should be. 
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary;

Mary unto the angel. How shall this be, seeing 
I know not a man? And the angel answered

overshadow thee : therefore also that holy thing 
which shall be bom of thee shall be called the

COMFORT ye, comfort ye my people, saith 
your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusa- 
lem, and cry unto her, That her warfare is accom- 
pli^ed; that her iniquity is pardoned: for she 
hath received of the Lord's hand double for all 
her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wil- 
derness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make 
straight in the desert a high-way for our God. 
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain 
and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall 
be made straight, and the rough places plain. And 
the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all 
flesh shall see it tc^ether: for the mouth of the 
Lord hath ^wken it. The voice said. Cry. And 
he said. What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and 
all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the 
field. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, 
because the Spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it : 
surely the people is grass. The grass wi^ereth, 
the flower &deth ; but the word of our God shall 
stand for ever. O Zion, that bringest good tidings, 
get thee up into the high mountain : O Jerusa- 
lem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice 
with strength ; lift it up, be not afraid : say unto 
the cities of Judah, Behold your God. Behold, the 
Lord God will come with strong hand, and his 
arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is 
with him, and his work before him. He shall feed 
his flock like a shepherd; be shall gather the 
lambs with his arm, and cari-y them in his bosom,

he would have him called. And he asked for

John. And they marvelled all. And his mouth 
was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, 
and he spake, and praised God. And fear came 
on all that dwelt round about them ; and all

And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself and

Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink

DEARLY beloved, on day next I pur- 
pose, through God's assistance, to adminis- 
ter to all such as shall be religiously and devoutly 
disposed the most comfortable Sacrament of the 
Body and Blood of Christ; to be by them re- 



THE COMMUNION. 



oeived in rememhrance of his meritorious Cros? 
and Passion ; whereby alone we obtain remission 
of our sins, and are made partakers of the King* 
dom of heaven. Wherefore it is onr duty to ren> 
der most humble and hearty thanks to Almighty 
God our heavenly Father, for that he hath given 
his Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, not only to die 
for ns, but also to be our spiritual food and sus^ 
tenance In that holy Sacrament. Which being 
so divine and comfortable a thing to them who 
receive it worthily, and so dangerous to them 
that will presume to receive it unworthily ; my 
duty is to exhort you in the mean season to con- 
sider the dignity of that holy mystery, and the 
great peril of the unworthy receiving thereof; 
and so to search and examine your own consci-* 
ences, (and that not lightly, and after the manner 
of dissemblers with God; but so) that ye may 
come holy and clean to such a heavenly Feast, 
in Hie marriage-garment required by God in holy 
Scripture, and be received as worthy partakers 
of that holy Table. 

The way and means thereto is; First, to ex.> 
amine your lives and conversations by the rule 
of God's commandments ; and whereinsoever ye 
shall perceive yourselves to have offended, either 
by will, word, or deed, there to bewail your own 
.sinfiilnesa, and to confess yourselves to Almighty 
God, with full purpose of amendment of life. And 
if ye shall perceive your offences to be such as 
are not only against God, but also against your 
neighbours; then ye shall reconcile yourselves 
unto them ; being ready to make restitution and 
satis&ction, according to the uttermost of your 
powers, for all- injuries and wrongs done by you 



THE COMMUNION. 



to any other; and being likewise ready to for- 
give others that have ofiended you, as ye would 
hare forgiveness of your offences at God's hand : 
for otherwise the receiving of the holy Commu- 
nion doth nothing else but increase your damna- 
tion. Therefore if any of you be a blasphemer 
of God, an hinderer or slanderer of his Word, 
an adulterer, or be in malice, or envy, or in 
any other grievous crime, repent you of your 
sins, or else come not to that holy Table; lest, 
after the taking of that holy Sacrament, the devil 
enter into you* as he entered into Judas, and fill 
you full of all iniquities, and bring you to de- 
struction both of body and soul. 

And because it is requisite, that no man should 
come to the holy Communion, but with a full 
trust in God's mercy, and with a quiet consci- 
ence ; therefore if there be any of you, who by 
this means cannot quiet his own conscience here- 
in, but requireth further comfort or counsel, let 
him come to me, or to some other discreet and 
learned Minister of God's Word, and open his 
grief; that by the ministry of God's holy Word 
he may receive the benefit of absolution, toge- 
ther witli ghostly counsel and advice, to the 
quieting of his conscience, and avoiding of all 
scruple and doubtfulness.

all that are here present; and beseech you, for 
the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, that ye will not 
refuse to come thereto, being so lovingly called

and bidden by God himself. Ye know how grier- 
CDS and unkind a thing it is, when a man hath 
•prepared a rich feast, decked his table with all 
kind of provision, so that there lacketh nothing 
-bat the guests to sit down ; and yet they who 
:are called (without any cause) most unthaiikfully 
refuse to come. Which of you in such a case 
would not be moved? Who would not think a 
■great injuiy and wrong done nnto him ? Where- 
fore, most dearly beloved in Christ, take ye good 
heed, lest ye, withdrawing yourselves from this 
holy Supper, provoke God's indignation against 
you. It is an easy matter for a man to say, I 
will not communicate, because I am othei'wise 
hindered with worldly business. But such ex- 
cuses are not so easily accepted and allowed be- 
fore God. If any man say, I am a grievous sin- 
ner, and therefore am afraid to come : wherefore 
then do ye not repent and amend ? When God 
calleth you, are ye not ashamed to say ye will 
not c(mie ? When ye should return to God, will 
ye excuse yourselves, and say ye are not ready ? 
Consider earnestly with yourselves how little 
such feigned excuses will avail before God. They 
that refused the feast in the Gospel, because they 
had bought a farm, or would try their yokes of 
oxen, or because they w&ve married, were not 
so excused, but counted unworthy of the hea- 
venly feast. I, for my part, shall be ready ; and, 
according to mine Office, I bid you in the Name 
of God, I call you in Christ's behalf, I exhort 
you, as ye love your own salvation, that ye will 
be partakers of this holy Communion. And as 
the Son of God did vouchsafe to yield up his 
soul by death upon the. Cross for your salvation; 



THE COMMUNION. 



so it is your duty to receive the Communion in 
remembrance of the sacrifice of his death, as he 
himself hath commanded: which if ye shall neg- 
lect to do, consider with yourselves how great 
injury ye do unto God, and how sore punish- 
ment hangeth over your heads for the same; 
when ye wilfully abstain firom the Lord's Table, 
and separate from your brethreo, who come to 
feed on the banquet of that most heavenly food. 
These things if ye earnestly consider, ye will by 
God's grace return to a better mind : for the ob- 
taining whereof we shall not cease to make our 
humble petitions unto Almighty God our hea- 
venly Father. 

IT At Ike time of the cekbralion cf the Conrmunwn, the CommunicanU 
being conveniently placed Jot the receiving of the hiiltf Sacrament, tht 
Prtett shall say this Exhortation. 

DEARLY beloved in the Lord, ye that mind 
to come to the holy Communion of the 
Body and Blood of our Saviour Christ, must 
consider how Saint Paul exhortetii all persons 
diligently to try and examine themselves, before 
they presume to eat of that Bread, and drink 
of that Cup.. For as the benefit is great, if with 
a true penitent heart and lively inith we receive 
that holy Sacrament ; (for then we spiritually eat 
the flesh of Christ, and drink his blood; then 
we dwell in Christ, and Christ in us; we are 
one with Christ, and Christ with us;) so is the 
danger gi'eat, if we receive the same unworthily. 
For then we are guilty of the Body and Blood 
of Christ our Saviour; we eat and drink our own 
damnation, not considering the Lord's Body; 
we kindle God's wrath against us ; we provoke 
him to plague us with divers diseases, and sundry 

t;>H«ic 



THE COMMUNION. 



kinds of death. Judge therefore yourselves, bre- 
thren, that ye be not judged of the Lord ; re- 
pent you truly for your sins past ; have a lively 
and stedfast faith in Christ our Saviour ; amend 
your lives, and be in perfect charity with all 
men ; so shall ye be meet partakers of those 
holy mysteries. And above all things ye must 
give most humble and hearty thanks to God, the 
Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, for the 
redemption of the world by the death and pas- 
sion of our Saviour Christ, both God and man ; 
who did humble himself, even to the death upon 
the Cross, for us, miserable sinners, who lay in 
darkness and the shadow of death ; that he might 
make us the children of God« and exalt us to 
everlasting life. And to the end that we should 
alway remember the exceeding great love of our 
Master, and only Saviour, Jesus Christ, thus dy- 
ing for us, and the innumerable benefits which 
by his precious blood-shedding he hath obtain-^ 
ed to us; he hath instituted and ordained holy 
mysteries, as pledges of his love, and for a con- 
tinual remembrance of his death, to our great 
and endless comfort. To him therefore, with 
the Father and the Holy Ghost, let us give (as 
we are most bounden) continual thanks; sub- 
mitting ourselves wholly to his holy will and 
pleasure, and studying to serve him in true 
holiness and righteousness all the days of our 
life. Amem.

Ghost came down as at this time from heaven 
with a sudden great sound, as it had been a 
mighty wind, in the likeness of fiery tongues,

fervent zeal constantly to preach the Gospel unto

TO BE USED IN THE CHURCH. 



V The ptopU are la be admonished, thai it is most convenient that Bap- 
tism should not be administered but upon Sundays, and other Hoiif- 
daifs, when the most number of people come together ; as nieli for that 



the Congregation there present may testify the receiving of them that 
be nenly baptized into the number of Christ's Church; as also because 
in the Baptism of Infants every Man present may be put in remem- 
brance ofnis oren profession made to God in his Baptitm. For rvhich 
cause also it is expedient that Baptism be minittened in the vulgar 
tongue. Nevertheless, {if necessity so require,) Children may be bap- 
tised upon any other day. 
V And note, that there shall bejor every Male-child to be baptised Imo 
Godfathers and one Godmother ; and for every Female, one Godfather 
and two Godmothers. 



^ When there are Children to be baptized, the Parents shall give know- 
ledge thereof over night, or in the mm'ning before the beginning ^ 
Morning Prayer, to the Curate. And then the Godfathers and God- 
mothers, and the people milk the Children, must be ready at the Font, 
either immediately afler the last Lesson at Morning Prayer, or else 



by his discretion shall appant. And the Priest coming to the Font, 
(which is then to be JUled mith pure Water,) and standing there, 
shall say, 

XM. ATH tbis Cbild been already baptized, or no ? 

T If they anmer. No : Then shall the Priest proceed asfoiloreeth. 

DEARLY beloved, fbrasmucb as all men are conceived 
and born in ein; and that our Saviour Christ saith, 
None can enter into the kingdom of God, except he be re- 
generate and bom anew of Water and of the holy Ghost ; 
I beseech you to call upon God the Father, through our 
Lord Jesus Christ, that of his bounteous mercy he will 
grant to this Child that thing which by nature he cannot 
have; that he may be baptized with Water and the holy 
Ghost, and received into Christ's holy Church, and be made 
a livelif member of the same. 

f Then shall the Priest say. 
Let US pray. 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, wlio of thy great 
mercy didst save Noah and his iamily in the ark 
from j)erishing by water; and also didst safely lead the

children of Israel tliy people through the Red Sea, figur- 
ing thereby thy holy Baptism ; and by the Baptism of thy 
well-beloved Son Jesus Christ, in the river Jordan, didst 
saactify Water to the mystical washing away of sin ; We 
beseech thee, for thme infinite mercies, that thou wilt 
mercifully look upon this Child; wash him aad sanctify 
him with the holy Ghost; that he, being delivered from 
thy wrath, may be received into the ark of Christ's Church ; 
and being sted&st in faith, joyful through hope, and rooted 
in charity, may so pass the waves of this troublesome world, 
that finally he may come to the land of everlasting life, 
there to reign with thee world without end ; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

ALMIGHTY and immortal God, the aid of all that 
need, the helper of all that flee to thee for succour, 
the life of them that believe, and the resurrection of the 
dead; We call upon thee for this Infant, that he, coming 
to thy holy Baptism, may receive remission of his sins by 
spiritual regeneration. Receive him, O Lord, as thou hast 
promised by thy well-beloved Son, saying, Ask, and ye 
shall have; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall 
be opened unto you: So ^ve now unto us that ask; let 
us that seek find ; open the gate unto us that knock ; that 
this Infant may enjoy the everlasting benediction of thy 
heavenly washing, and may come to the eternal kingdom 
-which thou hast promised by Christ our Lord. Amen. 
IT Then thatt the people Hand up, and the Prietl tkaH tatf. 
Hear the words of the Gospel, written by Saint Mark, in 
the tenth Chapter, at the thirteenth Verse. 

THEY brought young children to Christ, that he 
should touch them; and his disciples rebuked those 
that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much 
displeased, and said unto them. Suffer the little children to 
come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the 
kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you. Whosoever shall 
not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall 
not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put 
his hands upon them, and blessed them.

And humbly we beseech thee to grant, that Afi, being dead 
unto sin, and living unto righteousness, and being buried 
with Christ in his death, may crucify the old man, and 
utterly abolish the whole body of sin ; and that, as lie is 
made partaker of the death of thy Son, Jie may also be 
partaker of his resurrection; so that finally, with the resi-

V Then, all standing up, Ike Priest shall say to the Godfathers and 
Godmothers this Exhortation fotUm'hig. 

FORASMUCH as t/tts Child hath promiBed by you Am 
BuretieB to renounce the devil and all his works, to be- 
lieve in God, and to serve him ; ye must remember, that it - 
is your parts and duties to see that this Infaid be taught, 
so soon as he shall be able to leun, what a solemn vow, 
promise, and profession, he hath here made by yon. And 
that he may know these things the better, ye shall call 
upon him to hear Sermons; and chiefly ye shall provide, 
that he may learn the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the 
Ten Commandments, in the vulgar tongue, and all other 
diiags which a Christian ought to know and believe to 
his soul's health; and that this Child may be virtuously 
brought up to lead a godly and a christian life; remem- 
bering always, that Baptism doth represent unto us our 
profession ; which is, to follow the example of our Saviour 
Christ, and to be made like unto him ; that, as he died, 
and rose agtun for us, so should we, who are baptized, die 
from sin, and rise again unto righteousness; continually 
mortifying all our evil and corrupt affections, and daily 
proceeding in all virtue and godliness of Uving. 

IT Then shall he add and say, 

YE are to take care that this ChOd be brought to the 
Bishop to be confirmed by him, so soon as he can 
say the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Command- 
ments, in the vulgar tongue and be fiirther instructed in 
the Church-Catechism set forth for that purpose. 

IT is certain by God's Word, that Cliildren which are baptized, dying 
before they commit actual sin, are undoubtedly SAved. 

To take aivay all scruple concerning the use of the sign of the Cross 
is Baptism; the true explication thereof, and the just reasons for the 
retaining of it, may be seen in the xxxth Canon, Urst published in the

THE MINISTRATION OF 

PRIVATE BAPTISM OF CHILDREN 

IN HOUSES. 

fl The Curates of every Partth thai! oflert admonish the people, that they 
defer not the Baptism of Iheir Children longer Ihan the Jirst or lecond 
Sunday next after Ikei'r birlk, or other Holy-day faUiitg between, un- 
less upon a great and reasonable cause, to be approved by the Curate. 

f And also they shall tvarn Ihem, thai tvilkout like great cause and ne- 
cessitt/ ihcy procure not Iheir Children to be baptized at home in their 
houses. But when need shall compel them so to do, then Baptism 
shall be administered on tkisjashion: 

f First, let the Minister of the Parish (or, in his absence, any other 
lawful Minister that can be procured) with them that are present call 
upon God, and say the lord's Prayer, and so many of the Collects 
avpdnted to be said before in the Form of Publick Baptism, as the 
time and present ej:igcnce will suffer. And then, the Child being 

■ named by some one that is present, the Minister shall pour Water 
upon it, saying these words; 

NX baptize thee In the Name of the Father, -and of 
. the Son, and of the Holy Ghost Amen. 

% Then, all kneeling down, the Minister shall give thanks unto God, 
and say, 

WE yield thee hearty thanks, most merciful Father, 
that it hath pleased thee to regenerate this Infant 
with thy holy Spirit, to receive Mm for thine own Child 
by adoption, and to incorporate him into thy holy Church. 
And we humbly beseech thee to grant, that w he is now 
made partaker of the death of thy Son, so he may be also 
of his resurrection ; and that finally, with the residue of thy 
Saints, he may inherit thine everlasting kingdom ; through 
the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

IT And let them not doubt, but that the Child to baptized is lawfully and 
tujficicntly baptized, and ought not to be baptized again. Yet never' 
theless, if the Child, which is after this sort baptized, do afterward line, 
it is expedient that it be brought into the Church, to the intent that, 
if the Minister of the same Parish did himself baptize that Child, the 
Congregation may be certified of the true Form of Baptism, by him 
privately before used: In which case he shall say thus, 

I CERTIFY you, that according to the due and prescribed 
Order of the Church, at such a time, and at such a place, 
before divers witnesses I baptized this Child.

IT Bnl if the Child were baptized lif any other lanful Minister, (hen the 
Minister of/he Parish, where the Child mas horn or chriglened, shall 
examiKe and Irif tvhether the Child be lanifuUy baptized, or no. In 
trhich case, if those that bring any CkUd to the Church do answer, that 
ike same Child is already baptized, then shall the Minister examine 
them further, saying, 

BY whom was tbis Child Iraptized ? 
Who was preeent when this Child was baptized ? 
Because some things essential to this Sacrament maf 
happen to be omitted through fear or haste, in such times 
of extremity ; therefore I demand further of you, 
With what matter was this Child baptized ? 
With what words was this Child baptized ? 

IF And if the Minister shall find by the answers of such as brinir the 
Child, that all things were done'as they ought lo be; then sk,i)l not 
he christen the Child again, but shall receive him as one of the flock 
of true christian people, saying thus, 

I CERTIFY you, that in this case all is well done, and 
according unto due order, concerning the baptizing of 
this Child; who being bom in ori^nal sin, and in the 
wrath of God, is now, by the laver of Regeneration in Bap- 
tism, received into the number of the children of God, and 
heirs of everlasting Me: for our Lord Jesus Christ doth 
not deny his grace and mercy unto such In&nts, but most 
lovingly doth call them unto him, as the holy Ciospel doth 
witness to our comfort on this wise. 
St. Mark X. 13. 

THEY brought yoimg children to Christ, that he should 
touch them ; and his disciples rebuked those that 
brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much dis- 
pleased, and said unto them, Sufier the little children to 
come unto me, and forbid them not ; for of such is the king- 
dom of God. Verily I say unto you. Whosoever shall not 
receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not 
enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his 
bands upon them, and blessed them. 

V Afler the Gospel is read, the Minister shall make this brief Exhortation 
upon the words of the Gospel. 

BELOVED, ye hear in this Gospel the words of oar 
Saviour Christ, that he conuuanded the children to be

brought unto him ; how he blamed those that would have 
kept them Irom him ; how he exhorted all m^i to follow 
their innocency. Ye perceive how by his outward gesture 
and deed he declared his good will toward them ; for he 
embraced them in his arms, he laid his hands upon them, 
and blessed them. Doubt ye not therefore, but earnestly 
believe, that he hath likewise fovourably received this pre- 
sent Iitfant; that he bath embraced Ttim with the arms of 
his mercy; and (as he hath promised in his holy Word) 
will give unto him the blessing of eternal life, and make 
him partaker of bis everlasting kingdom. Wherefore, we 
being thus persuaded of the good will of our heavenly Fa^ 
ther, declared by his Son Jesus Christ, towards this Infant, 
let us faithfully and devoutly give thanks unto him, and say 
the Prayer wluch the Lord himself taught us : 

OUR Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy 
Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in 
earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. 
'And forgive us our trespasses. As we forgive them that 
trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation ; But 
deliver us from evil. Amen. 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, heavenly Father, we 
give thee humble thanks, that thou hast vouchsafed 
to call us to the knowledge of thy grace, and faith in thee; 
Increase this knowledge, and confirm this &ith in us ever- 
more. Give thy holy Spirit to this It^ant, that he, being 
bom again, and being made an heir of everlasting salva^ 
tion, through our Lord Jesus Christ, may continue thy ser- 
vant, and attain thy promise; through the same our Lord 
Jesus Christ thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with thee

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who of thy great 
mercy didst save Noah and his family in the ark from 
perishing hy water ; and also didst safely lead the children 
of Israel thy people through the Red Sea, figuring thereby 
thy holy Baptism ; and by the Baptism of thy weU-beloved 
Son Jesus Christ, in the river Jordan, didst sanctiiy the 
element of Water to the mystical washing away of sin ; We 
beseech thee, fbr thine infinite mercies, that thou wilt mer- 
cifully look upon these thy servants; wash them and sanc- 
tify titem with the holy Ghost, that M^, being delivered 
from thy wrath, may be received into the ark of Christ's

Hew the words of the Gospel, written by Saint JohM^ in 
the third Chapter, beginning at the first Verse. 

THERE was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicode- 
mus, a ruler of the Jews. The same came to Jesus by 
night, and Bud unto him. Rabbi, we know that thou art

& teacher come from God; for no man can do these mi- 
facles that thou doeBt, except God be with him. Jesus 
answered and said unto him. Verily, verily I say unto thee, 
Except a man be born again, he cumot see the kingdom of 
God. Nicodemus saith onto him, How can a man be bom 
when he is old ? Can he enter the second time into bis mo- 
ther's womb, and be bom? Jesus answered, Verily, verily 
I saj unto thee, Except a man be bom of water and of the 
Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom c^ God. That 
'^ich is bom of the flesb is flesh ; and that which is bom 
of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto tbe^ 
Ye must be bom again. The wind blowetb where it list- 
eth, and thou hearest the sound thereof; but canst not tell 
when<» it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one 
that is bom of the Spirit. 

IT After mhich he shall say this Exhortation ftUcming. 

BELOVED, ye hear in this Gospel the express words 
of our Saviour Christ, that except a man be bom of 
water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom 
of God. Whereby ye may perceive the great necessity of 
this Sacrament, where it may be liad. Likewise, immedi- 
ately before his ascension into heaven, (as we read in the 
last Chapter of Swnt Mark's Gospel,) he gave command to 
his disciples, saying, Go ye into all the world, and preach 
the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is 
baptized shall be saved ; but he that believeth not shall be 
damned. Which also sheweth unto us the great benefit 
we reap thereby. For which cause Saint Peter the Apo- 
stle, when upon his first preaching of the Gospel many were 
pricked at the heart, and s^d to him and the rest of the 
Apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? replied 
and said unto them. Repent, and be baptized every one of 
you for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift 
of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is to you and your 
children, and to all that are atar off, even as many as the 
Lord our God shall call. And with many other words ex- 
horted be th^n, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward 
generation. For (as the same Apostle testifieth in another 



PUBLICK BAPTISM OF SUCH 

place) even Baptism doth also now save us, (not the put- 
ting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a 
good conscience towards God,) by the resurrection of Je* 
sus Christ. Doabt ye not therefore, but earnestly b^eve, 
that he will &Tourably receire these present persons, truly 
repenting, and coming unto him by faith ; that he will 
grant them remission of their sins, and b^tow upon them 
the holy Ghost; that he will ^ve them the blessing of 
eternal life, and make them partakers of his eTerlasting 
kingdom. 

Wherefore we being thus persuaded of the good will 
of our heavenly Father towards Aese persons, declared by 
his Son JesuB Christ; let us iaithfiilly and devoutly pve 
thanks to him, and say, 

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, heavenly Father, we

safed to call us to the knowledge of thy grace, aad iaith in 
thee : Increase this knowledge, and confirm this faith in us 
evermore. Give thy holy Spirit to these persons, that &eff

Christ hath promised in his holy Word to grant all those 
things that we have prayed for ; which promise he, for his 
part, will most surely keep and perform.

Christ, it 18 your put and duty also, being nude 
the children of God and of the light, by &ith in Jesus 
dirist, to walk answerably to your Christian calling, and 
as becometh the children of light; remembering always 
that Baptism representeth unto us our profession; which 
is, to follow the example of our Saviour Christ, and to be 
made like unto him; that as he died, and rose again for 
us; so should w^ who are baptized, die from sin, and rise 
again unto righteousness; continually mortifying all our 
evil and corrupt affections, and daily proceeding in all 
virtue and godliness of living. 

IT // is expedient that every person, thus baptized, shovld be confirmed 
by the Bishop so soon after his Baptism as conveniently may be ; that 
so he may be admitted to the holy Communion. 

^ If any persons not baptized in their infancy shall be brought lo he 
baptized before they come to years of discretion to answer jar them- 
selves ; it may suffice to use the Office for Publick Baptism of In- 
fants, or (in case of extreme danger) the Office for Private Baptism ; 
only changing the mord QInfant_| for [IChud or Person3 as occasion

A CATECHISM. 



You Bald, that your GkxUatherB aud Godmothers did 
promise for yon, that you should keep God's Command- 
ments. Tell me how many there be? 
Ansvser. Ten. 
Question. Which be they ? 
Answer. 

THE same which God spake in the twentieth Chapter of 
Exodus, saying, I am the Lord thy God, who brought 
thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 

I. Thou ehait have none other gods but me. 

II. Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven image, 
nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or 
in the earth beneath, or in the water under the earth. 
Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor worship them : far 
I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, imd visit the sins 
of the fethers upon the children, unto the third and fourth 
generation of them that hate me, and shew mercy unto 
thousands in them that love me, and keep my command- 
ments. 

in. Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy 
God in vain : for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that 
taketh hla Name in vain. 

IV. Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath-day. 
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to 
do ; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy 
God. In it thou shalt do no manner of work, thou, and 
thy BOD, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy maid- 
servant, thy cattle, and the stranger that is within thy 
gates. For in six da3rs the Lord made heaven and earth, 
the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh 
day; wherefare the Lord blessed the seventh day, and 
hallowed it 

V. Honour thy iather and thy mother, that thy days may 
be long in the load which the Lord thy God giveth thee. 

VI. Thou shalt do no murder. 

VII. Thou shalt not commit adultery. 
Vm. Thou shalt not steal

IX. ThoD shalt not bear iaise witness against tfaj 



X. Thou sfaalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou 
shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his servant, nor 
his maid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor ajij thing that is his. 



What dost thou chiefly learn by these Commandments ? 

Ansujer. I leam two things : my duty towards God, 
and my duty to^i^rds my Neighbour. 

Question. What is thy duty towards God ? 

Answer. My duty towards God, is to believe in him, 
to fear him, and to love him with all my heart, with all 
my mind, with all my soul, and with all my strength; to 
worship him, to give him thanks, to put my whole trust in 
him, to call upon him, to honour his holy Name and his 
Word, and to serve him truly all the days of my life. 

Question, What is thy duty towards thy Neighbour? 

Amtoer. My duty towards my Neighbour, is to love 
him as myself, and to do to all men, as I would they 
should do unto me: To love, honour, and succour my 
fether and mother: To honour and obey the Queen, and 
all that are put in authority under her : To submit myself 
to all my govemours, teachers, spiritual pastors and mas- 
ters : To order myself lowly and reverently to all my bet- 
ters : To hurt no body by word nor deed : To be true and 
jost in all my dealing: To bear no malice nor hatred in 
my heart: To keep my hands from picking and stealing, 
and my tongue from evil-spealdng, lying, and slandering: 
To keep my body in temperance, soberness, and chastity: 
Not to covet nor desire other men's goods ; but to leam 
and labour truly to get mine own living, and to do my 
duty in that state of liie, unto which it shall please God 
to call me. 

CaiechiKi. 

My good Child, know this, that thou art not able to 
do these things of thyself, nor to walk in the Command- 
ments of God, and to serve him, without his special grace ; 
which thou must leam at all times to cidl for by diligent

THE FOBH OF 

SOLEMNIZATION OF MATRIMONY. 

% First the Banns of all Ikal are to be married togdlier must be pub- 
lished in the Church three several Sundays, during the time of Morn- 
ing Service, or of Evening Service, (if there be no Morning Service,) 
immediatelif after the sciond Lesson ; the Curate saying a_fier the nc- 
ciislomcd manner, 

I PUBLISH the Banns of Marriage between M. of 
and N. of . If any of you know cause, or just 

impediment, why these two persons should not be joined 
together in holy Matrimony, ye are to declare it. This 
is the first [second, or ihird} time of asking. 

% And if the persons that are to be married dwell in divers Parishes, 
the Banns must be asked in both Parishes j and the CurxUe of the 
one Parish shall not solemnise Matrimony betwixt them, without a 
Cerlijicale of Ike Banns being thrice asked, from the Curate of ike 
other Parisk. 

T At the daif and time appointed fir sole7nni::ation of Mairiinonif, the 
persons to be married shall come into the body of the Church with their 
friends and neighbours : and there standing together, the Man on the 
riglU hand, and the Woman on the left, the Priest shall say, 

D£ABLY beloved, we. are gathered together here in 
the si^t of God, and in the face of this congrega- 
tion, to join together this Man and this Woman in holy 
Matrimony; which is an honourable estate, instituted of 
God in the time of man's innocency, signi^iug unto us 
the mystical union that is betwixt Christ and his Church; 
which holy estate Christ adorned and beautified with his 
presence, and first miracle that he wrooght, in Cana of 
Galilee; and is commended of Saint Paul to be honour- 
able among all men : and therefore is not by any to be 
enterprised, nor taken in hand, unadvisedly, lightly, or 
wantonly, to satisfy men's carnal lusts and appetites, like 
brute beasts that have no understanding; but reverently, 
discreetly, advisedly, soberly, and in the fear of God ; duly 
considering the causes for which Matrimony was ordained. 

First, It was ordained for the procreation of children, 
to be brought up in the fear and nurture of the Lord, and 
to the praise of his holy Name. 

Secondly, It was orduned for a remedy against sin, and 
to avoid fornication ; that such persons as have not the gift 



SOLEMNIZATION OF MATRIMONY. 

of continency mi^t many, and keep themselvee nndefiled 
members of Christ's body. 

Thirdly, It was ordained for the mutual society, help, 
and comfort, that the one ou^t to have of the other, both 
in prosperity and adversity. Into which holy estate these 
two persons present come now to be joined. Therefore if 
any man can shew any just cause, why they may not law- 
fully be joined togetha*, let him now speak, or else here- 
after for ever hold his peace. 

IT And aim, speating unto the persons that tkall be married, he shall tay, 

I REQUIRE and charge you both, as ye will answer at 
the dreadful day of judgement when the secrets oif ail 
hearts shall be disclosed, that if either of you know any 
impediment, why ye may not be lawfiUIy joined together in 
Matrimony, ye do now confess it. For be ye well assured, 
that BO many as are coupled togeth^ otherwise than God's 
Word doth allow are not joined together by God ; neither 
is their Matrimony lawful. 

IT At which day of Marriage, if any man do aUtdge and declare anif im- 
pediment, why they may not be coupled together in Matrimony, by God's 
Lam, or the Laws of this Realm; and will be hound, and sufficient 
sureties with him, to the parties; or else put in a Caution (to the full 
value of such charges as the persons to be married do thereby sustain) 
to prove his allegation : then the solemnization must be deferred, until 
Slick time as the truth be tried. 
Vlfno impediment be alledged, then shall the Curate say unto the Man, 

M. "TTtTILT thou have this Woman to thy wedded wife, 
tV to live together after God's ordinance in the 
holy estate of Matrimony ? Wilt thou love her, comfort 
her, honour, and keep her in sickness and in health ; and, 
forsaking all other, keep thee only unto her, so long as ye 
both shall live? 

II The Man shall ansn'er, 

I will. 

^ Then shall the Priest say unto the Woman, 

IV. "TTTILT thou have this Man to thy wedded hus-

liealth ; and, forsaking all other, keep tbee only unto him, 
so long as ye both Bball live ? 

If The Woman shall answer, 

I will. 

IT Then shall Ike Minister sai/. 

Who pveth this Woman to be married to this Man ? 

IT Then shall they give their troth to each other in this manner. The 
Minister, receiving Ike Woman at her father's or friend's hands, shall 
cause the Man nilh his right hand to take the fVotnan by her right 
hand, and la say qfter him asfoUoneth. 

IM. take thee N. to my wedded wife, to have and to 
hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for 
richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to 
cherish, till death us do part, according to God's holy 
ordinance ; and thereto I plight thee my troth. 

IT Then shall they loose their hands ; and the Woman, mth her right 
hand taking the Man by his right hand, shall likewise say after the 
Minister, 

IN. take thee M. to my wedded husband, to have and 
to hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for 
richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love, cherish, 
and to obey, till death us do part, according to God's holy 
ordinance ; and thereto I give tbee my troth. 

% Then shall they again loose their hands ; and the Man shall give unto 
the Woman a Ring, laying the same upon the book teith the accustomed 
duly to the Priest and Clerk. And the Priest, taking the Ring, shall 
deliver it unto Ike Man, to put it upon the fourth Jinger of the Woman's 
Idi hand. And the Man holding the Ring there, and taught by the 
Priest, shall say, 

WITH this Ring I thee wed, with my body I thee 
worship, and with all my worldly goods I thee 
endow : In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and 
of the Holy Ghost. Amen. 

% Then the Man leaving the Ring upon the fourth fnger of the Woman's 
lefl hand, they shall both kneel dotitn; and the Minister shall say. 

Let us pray. 
f\ ETERNAL God, Creator and Preserver of all man- 
^^ kind. Giver of aU spiritual grace, the Author of ever- 
lasting life ; Send thy blessing upon these thy servants, this 
man and this woman, whom we bless in thy Name; tbat»

as Isaac and Rebecca lived faithfully together, so these per- 
sons maj surely perform and keep the raw and coT^iant 
betwixt them made, (whereof this Ring given and received 
is a token and pledge,) and may ever remain in p^-fect 
love and [»eace together, and live according to thy laws ; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

IT Then shall the Priest join Iheir right hands together, and say. 

Those whom God hath joined together let no man put 
asunder. 

• IT Then shall the Minister speak unto the people. 

FORASMUCH as M. and N. have consented together 
in holy wedlock, and have witnessed the same before 
God and this company, and thereto have g^ven and pledged 
their troth either to other, and have declared the same by 
giving and receiving of a Ring, and by joining of bands ; 
I pronounce that they be Man and Wife together. In the 
Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 
Ghost. Amen. 

IT And tfie Minitter thall add this Blessing. 

GOD the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, 
bless, preserve, and keep you ; the Lord mercifully 
with his favour look upon you; and so fill you with all 
spiritual benediction and grace, that ye may so live to-

life everlasting. Amen.

OGOD of Ahraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacoh, bless

their hearts ; that whatsoever in thy holy Word they shall 
profitably learn, they may in deed fulfil the same. Look, 
O Lord, mercifully upon them from heaven, and bless 
them. And as thou didst send thy blessing upon Abra- 
ham and Sarah, to their great comfort, so vouchsafe to send 
thy blessing upon these thy servants; that they obeying 
thy will, and alway being in safety under thy protection, 
may abide in thy love unto their lives' end ; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen,

both be fruitful in procreation of children, and also live 
together so long in godly love and honesty, that they may 
see their children christianly and virtuously brought up,

state of Matrimony to such an excellent mystery, that in 
it is signified and repiesented the spiritual marriage and 
unity betwixt Christ and his Church; Look merafiilly 
upon these thy servants, that both this man may love his 
wife, according to thy Word, (as Christ did love his spouse 
the Church, who gave himself for it, loving and cherishing 
it even as his own flesh,) and also that this woman may be 
loving and amiable, faithftd and obedient to her husband ; 
and in all quietness, sobriety, and peace, be a follower of 
holy and godly matrons. O Lord, bless them both, and 
grant them to inherit thy everlasting kingdom; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

If Then shall the Priest sny, 

A LMIGHTY God, who at the beginning did create 
-^^ our first parents, Adam and Eve, and did sanctify 
and join them tt^ether in marriage; Pour upon you the 
riches of his grace, sanctify and bless you, that ye may 
please him both in body and soul, and live together in holy 
love unto your lives' end. Amen. 

It Afier nhich, y there he no Sermon declaring the duties ff Man and 

Wife, the Minister shall read as/olloniefh. 

ALL ye that are married, or that intend to take the 
holy estate of Matrimony upon you, hear what the 
holy Scripture doth say as touching the duty of husbands 
towards their wives, and wives towards their husbands. 

Saint Paul, in his Epistle to the Ephesians, the fifth 
Chapter, doth give this commandment to all married men ; 
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the 
Church, and gave himself for it, that he might sanctify and 
cleanse it with the washing of water, by the Word ; that 
he might present it to himself a glorious Church, not hav- 
ing spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing ; but that it should 
be holy, and without blemish. So ought men to love their 
wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth 
himself: for no man ever yet hated his own flesh, but 
nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the Chnrch: 
for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his 



SOLEMNIZATION OF MATRIMONY. 

bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and 
ntother, and shall be joined unto his wife ; and they two 
shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery ; but I speak 
concerning Christ and the Church. Nevertheless, let every 
one of you in particular so love his wife, even as himself. 

Likewise tiie same Saint Paul, writing to the Colos- 
sians, speaketh thus to all men that are married; Hus- 
bands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. 

Hear also what Saint Peter, the Apostle of Christ, who 
was himself a married man, saith unto them that are mar- 
ried; Ye husbands, dwell with your wives according to 
knowledge; giving honour unto the wife, as unto the 
weaker vessel, and as being heirs tt^ether of the grace of 
life, that your prayers be not hindered. 

Hitherto ye have heard the duty of the husband toward 
the wife. Now likewise, ye wives, hear and learn your 
duties toward your husbands, even as it is plainly set forth 
in holy Scripture. 

Saint Paul, in the aforenamed Epistle to the Ephesians, 
teacheth you thus; Wives, submit yourselves unto your 
own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband i$ the 
head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church : 
and he is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the 
Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their 
own husbands in every thing. And again he saith. Let 
the wife see that she reverence her husband. 

And in his Epistle to the Colossians, Saint Paul giveth 
you this short lesson ; Wives, submit yourselves unto your 
own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. 

Saint Peter also doth instruct you very well, thus say- 
ing; Ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; 
that, if any obey not the Word, they also may without 
the Word be won by the conversation of the wives ; while 
they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 
Whose adorning, let it not be that outward adorning of 
plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on 
of apparel ; but let it be the hidden man o{ the heart, in 
that which is not corruptible ; even the ornament of s 



SOLEMNIZATION OF MATRIMONY. 

meek and qmet spirit, which is in the sight of God of 
great price. For after this manner in the old time the 
holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, 
being in subjection unto their own husbands ; even as Sa- 
rah obeyed Abraham* calling him lord; whose daughters 
ye are as long as ye do well, and are not a&aid vrith any 
amazement.

IT When he cometh into the sick man's presence he shall say, kneeling

REMEMBER not, Lord, our iniquities, nor the ini- 
quities of our forefathers : Spare us, good Lord, spare 
thy people, whom thou hast redeemed with thy most pre- 
cious blood, and be not angry with us for ever.

Minister. 

OLORD, look down from heaven, behold, visit, and re-

of thy mercy, give him comfort and sure confidence in thee, 
defend him from the danger of the enemy, and keep him 
in perpetual peace and safety; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen, 

HKAR us. Almighty and most merciful God and Sa- 
viour; extend thy accustomed goodness to this thy 
servant who is grieved with sickness. Sanctify, we beseech 
thee, this thy &therly correction to him ; that the sense 
of his weakness may add strength to his faith, and serious- 
ness to his repentance : That, if it shall be thy good plea- 
sure to restore him to hi» former health, he may lead the 
residue of his life in thy fear, and to thy glory : or else, 
^ve him grace so to take thy visitation, that, afrer this 
painful life ended, he may dwell with thee in life ever- 
lasting ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

IT Then shall the Minister exhort the sicic person afier this form, or 
other Uke. 

DEARLY beloved, know this, that Almighty God ia 
the Lord of life and death, and of all things to them 
pertuning, as youth, strength, health, age, weakness, and 
sickness. Wherefore, whatsoever your sickness is, know 
you certainly, that it is Grod*s visitation. And for what 
cause soever this sickness is sent unto you ; whether it be 
to try your patience for the example of others, and that 
your faith may be found in the day of the Lord laudable, 
glorious, and honourable, to the increase of glory and end- 



THE VISITATION OF THE SICK. 

less felicity; or else it be sent unto you to correct and 
amend in you whatsoever doth offend the eyes of your 
heavenly Father; know you certtunly, that if you truly 
repent you of your sins, and bear your sickness patiently, 
trusting in God's mercy, for his dear Son Jesus Christ's 
sake, and render unto him humble thanks for his fatherly 
visitation, submitting yourself wholly imto his will, it shall 
turn to your profit, and help you forward in the right way 
that leadeth unto everlasting life. 

IT I/ihe perxun visited be very sick, then the Curate maj/ end hh exkor- 
tation in this place, or else proceed. 

TAKE therefore in good part the chastisement of the 
Lord : For (as Sfiint Paul saith in the twelfth Chap- 
ter to the Hebrews) whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, 
and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. If ye endure 
chastening, -.God dealeth with you as with sons; for what 
son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be 
without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are 
ye bastards, and not sons. Furthermore, we have had fa- 
thers of our flesh, which corrected us, and we gave them 
reverence : shall we not much rather be in subjection unto 
the Father of spirits, and live ? For they verily for a few 
days chastened us after their own pleasure ; but he for our 
profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. These 
words, good brother, are written in holy Scripture for our 
comfort and instruction; that we should patiently, and 
with thanksgiving, bear our heavenly Father's correction, 
whensoever by any manner of adversity it shall please his 
gradous goodness to visit ua. And there should be no 
greater comfort to Christian persons, than to be made like 
unto Christ, by suffering patiently adversities, troubles, 
uid sicknesses. For he himself went not up to joy, hut 
first he suffered pain ; he entered not into his glory before 
he was crucified. So truly our way to eternal joy is to 
suffer here with Christ ; and our door to enter into eter- 
nal life is gladly to die with Christ; that we may rise 
agun from death, and dwell witli him in everlasting life. 
Now therefore, taking your sickness, which is thus pro- 



THE VISITATION OF THE SICK. 

fitable for you, patiently, I exhort yoa, in the Name of 
Grod, to remember the profession which you made unto 
God in your Baptism. And forasmuch as after this life 
there is an account to be given unto the righteous Judge, 
by whom all must be judged, without respect of persons, I 
require you to examine yourself and your estate, both to^ 
ward God and man; so that, accusing and condemning 
yourself for your own faults, you may find mercy at our 
heavenly Father's hand for Christ's sake, and not be ac- 
cused and condemned in that fearful judgement. There- 
fore I shall rehearse to you the Articles of our Faith, that 
you may know whether you do believe as a Christian man 
should, or no. 

U Here the Minister thatl rehearse the Article* of the Faith, saying 
thus, 

DOST thou believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker 
of heaven and earth ? 

And in Jesus Christ his only-begotten Son our Lord? 
And that he was conceived by the Holy Ghost, bom of 
the Virgin Mary ; that he suffered under Pontius Pilat^ 
was crucified, dead, and buried; that he went down into 
hell, and also did rise again the third day; that he as- 
cended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God 
the Father Almighty ; and from thence shall come again 
at the end of the world, to judge the quick and the dead ? 

And dost thou believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy 
Catholick Church; the Communion of Sunts; the Re* 
mission of sins ; the Kesurrection of the flesh ; and ever- 
lasting life after death ? 

IT The sick person shaU anstver, 

All this I atedfastly believe. 

H Then shall the Minister eramine whether he repent him truly of his 
sins, and be in charity with all Ike world ; exhorting him to forgive, 
Jrom the bottom of his heart, all persons that have offended kim ; and 
if he hath offended any other, to ask them forgiveness i and where 
he hath done injury or nrone to any man, that he make amends tn 
the uttermost of his power. And if ^ hoik not before disposed of his 
etx>ds, let him then be admonished to make his Will, and to declare 
his Debts, nhat he ometh, and what is otving unto him; for the better 

. discharging of his conscience, and the quietness of hit Executors. But

men tkould often be put in remembrance lo take order Jbr ike sellUng 

oflkeir temporal estates, whilst they are in kealik. 
% These words before rcliearsed -may be said before the Minister begin 

his Pra;^er, as he shall see cause. 
It The Minister should not omit eamestly to move such sick persons as 

are of ability to be liberal to the poor. 
K Here shall the sict person be moved to make a special Confession g/" his 

sins, if he feel his conscience troubled with aa^ weighty matter. After 

tvhich Confession, the Priest shall absolve him {tf he humbly and heartily 

desire it) after this tort. 

OUR Lord Jesus Christ, who hath left power to his 
Church to ahsolve all nnners who truly repent and 
beliere in hint, of his great mercy forgive thee thine of- 
fences: And by his authority committed to me, I absolve 
thee from all thy sins. In the Name of the Father, and 
of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen. 

V And then the Priest shall say the Collect following. 

Let us pray. 

OMOST merciful God, who, according to the multi- 
tude of thy mercies, dost so put away the sins of those 
who truly repent, that thou rememberest them no more; 
Open thine eye of mercy upon this thy servant, who most 
earnestly desireth pardon and forgiveness. Kenew in him, 
most loving Father, whatsoever hath been decayed by the 
fi^ud and malice of the devil, or by his own carnal will and 
Irailness; preserve and continue this sick member in the 
unity of the Church ; consider his contrition, accept his 
tears, asswage his p^n, as shall seem to thee most expe- 
dient for him. And forasmuch as he putteth his full trust 
only in thy mercy, impute not unto him his former sins, 
but strengthen htm with thy blessed Spirit; and, when 
thou art pleased to take him hence, take him unto thy 
favour, through the merits of thy most dearly beloved Son 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

IT Then shall the Minitler say this Psalm. 

In te, Domine, speravi. Psalm Ixxi. 

IN thee, O Lord, have I put my trust ; let me never be 
put to confusion : but rid me, and deliver me in thy 
righteousness ; incline thine ear unto me, and save me. 



THE VISITATION OF THE SICK. 

Be thou my strong bold, whereunto I may alway resort : 
thou hast promised to help me; for thou art my house of 
defence, and my castle. 

Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the un- 
godly : out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel 
man. 

For thou, O Lord God, art the thing that I long for : 
thou art my hope, even from my youth. 

Through thee hare I been hdden up ever since I was 
horn : thou art he that took me out of my mother's womb ; 
my praise shall alway be of thee. 

I am become as it were a monster unto many : hut my 
sure trust is in thee. 

let my mouth be filled with thy praise : that I may 
sing of thy glory and honour all the day long. 

Cast me not away in the Ume of age : forsake me not 
when my strength faileth me. 

For mine enemies speak against me, and they that lay 
wut for my soul take their counsel together, saying : Ciod 
hath forsaken him, persecute him, and take him ; for there 
is none to deliver him. 

Go not far from me, O God : my God, haste thee to 
help me. 

Let them he confounded and perish that are against 
my soul : let them be covered with shame and dishonour 
that seek to do me evil. 

As for me, I will patiently abide alway : and will praise 
thee more and more. 

My mouth shall daily speak of thy righteousness and 
salvation : for I know no end thereof. 

1 will go forth in the strength of the Lord God : and 
will make mention of thy righteousness only. 

Thou, O God, hast taught me from my youth up until 
now : therefore will I tell of thy wondrous works. 

Forsake me not, O God, in mine old age, when I am 
gray-headed : until I have shewed thy strength unto thb 
generation, and thy power to all them that are yet for to 
come. 

Thy righteousness, O God, is very high, and great things

thee? 

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the 
Holy Ghost;

world without end. Amen. 

IT Adding this. 

O SAVIOUR of the world, who by thy Cross and pre- 
cious Blood hast redeemed us, Save us, and help us, 
we humbly beseech thee, O Lord. 

IT Then thall the Minister say, 

THE Almighty Lord, who is a most strong tower to 
all them that put their trust in him, to whom all 
things in heaven, iu earth, and under the earth, do bow 
and obey, be now and evermore thy defence; and make 
thee know and feel, that there is none other Name under 
heaven ^ven to man, in whom, and through whom, thou 
mayest receive health and salvation, but only the Name of 
our Lord Jesns Christ. Amen. 

H And nfler that shall say, 

UNTO God's gracious mercy and protection we com- 
mit thee. The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. The 
Lord make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious 
unto thee. The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee. 
and give thee peace, both now and evermore. Amen.

after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh 
shall I see God : whom I shall see for myself, and mine 
eyes shall behold, and not another. Job xix. 25, 26, 27.

AT THE BimiAL OF THE DEAD. 

IT AJier they are come into ike Church, shall be read one or both c^lktte 
Psalmt/i^om ing. 

XHxi, cti^odiam. Psalm xxxix. 

I SAID, I will take heed to my ways : that I offend 
not in my tongue. 

I will keep my mouth as it were with a bridle : while 
the ungodly is in my sight. 

I held my tongue, and spake nothing : I kept silence, 
yea, even from good words; but it was pain and grief 
to me. 

My heart was hot within m'e, and while I was thus 
musing the fire kindled : and at the last I spake with my 
tongue; 

Lord, let me know mine end, and the number of my 
days : that I may be certified bow long I have to live. 

Behold, thou hast made my days as it were a span long : 
and mine age is even as nothing in respect of thee ; aud 
verily every man living is altogether vanity. 

For man walketh in a vain shadow, and disquieteth 
himself in vaiu : he heapeth up riches, and cannot tell 
who shall gather them. 

And now. Lord, what is my hope : truly my hope is 
even in thee. 

Deliver me from all mine offences : and make me not a 
rebuke unto the foolish. 

I became dumb, and opened not my mouth : for it was 
thy doing. 

Take thy plague away from me : I am even consumed 
by means of thy heavy band. 

When thou with rebukes dost chasten man for nn, 
thou makest his beauty to consume away, like as it were 
a moth fretting a garment : every man therefore is but 
vanity. 

Hear my prayer, O Lord, and with thine ears consider 
my calling : hold not thy peace at my tears. 

For I am a stranger with thee : and a sojourner, as aQ 
my fathers were. 

O spare me a little, that I may recover my strength : 
before I go hence, and be no more seen. 



AT THE BURIAL OF THE DEAD. 

Glory be to ^e Father, and to the Son : and to the 
Holy Ghost ; 

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : 
world without end. Amen. 

Domine, refiigium. PBalm xc. 

LORD, thou hast been our refuge : &om one generation 
to another. 

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever the 
earth and the world were made : thou art God from ever- 
lasting, and world without end. 

Thou tumest man to destruction : again thou sayest. 
Come again, ye children of men. 

For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday : 
seeing that is past as a watch in the night. 

As soon as thou scatterest them, they are even as a 
sleep : and fade away suddenly like the grass. 

In the morning it is green, and groweth up : but in the 
evening it is cut down, dried up, and withered. 

For we consume away in thy displeasure : and are afraid 
at thy wrathful indignation. 

Thou bast set our misdeeds before thee : and our secret 
sins in the light of thy countenance. 

For when thou art angry all our days are gone : we bring 
our years to an end, as it were a tale that is told. 

l^e days of our age are threescore years and ten ; and 
though men be so strong, that they come to fourscore 
years : yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow; 
so soon passeth it away, and we are gone. 

But who regardeth the power of thy wrath : for eren 
thereafter as a man feareth, so is thy displeasure. 

O teach us to number our days : that we may apply our 
hearts unto wisdom. 

Turn thee again, O Lord, at the last ; and be gracious 
unto thy servants. 

O satisfy us with thy mercy, and that soon : so shall 
we rejoice and be glad aHl the days of our life. 

Comfort us again now after the time that thou hast 
plagued us : and for the years wherein we have suffered 
adverrity.

H Then shall fallom the Lesson taken out of the ^Jleenth Chapter of the 
fiyrmer Ephtte of Saint Paul to the Corinthians. 
1 Cor. XV. 20. 
f OW is Christ risen from the dead, and become the 
first-fruits of them that slept. For since by man 
came death, by nian came also the resurrection of the dead. 
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made 
alive. But every man iu his own order: Christ the first- 
fruits ; afterward they that are Christ's, at his coming. Then 
Cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the king- 
dom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put 
down all rule, and all authority, and power. For he mnst 
reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The 
last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath 
put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all 
things are put under him, it is manifest that he is ex- 
cepted, which did put all things under him. And when 
all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son 
also himself be subject unto him that put all things under 
him. that Gfod may be all in all. Else what shall they do 
which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at 
all? Why are they then baptized for the dead? and why 
stand we in jeopardy every hour? I protest by your re- 
joicing, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily. 
If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at 
Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? 
Let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die. Be not de- 
ceived : evil communicationB corrupt good manners. Awake 
to righteousness, and sin not ; for some have not the know- 
ledge of God. I speak this to your shame. But some man 



AT THE BURIAL OF THE DEAD. 

wUI say. How are the dead raised up ? and with what body 
do tbey come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not 
quickened, except it die. And that which thou sowest, 
tiiou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, 
it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain : But God 
gireth it a body, as it hath pleased him, and to every seed 
bis own body. All flesh is not the same flesh ; but there 
is one kind of flesb of men, another flesh 6f beasts, another 
of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial 
bodies, and bodies terrestrial ; but the glory of the celestial 
is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There 
is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, 
and another glory of the stars ; fm* one star difiereth from 
another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the 
dead : It is sown in corruption ; it is raised in incorrup- 
tion : It is sown in dishonour ; it is raised in glory : It is 
sown in weakness ; it is raised in power : It is sown a, 
natural body; it is raised a spiritu^ body. There is a 
natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is 
written, The first man Adam was made a living soul ; the 
last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit, that 
was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural ; 
and aflerward that which is spiritual. The first man is 
of the earth, earthy : the second man is the Lord from 
heaven. As is the earthy, such are they that are earthy : 
and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are hea- 
venly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, 
we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this 
1 say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the 
kingdom of God; neither doth comiptiou inherit incor-i 
ruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery: We sball not 
all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the 
twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, (for the trumpet 
shall sound,) and the dead shall be raised incorruptible^ 
and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put 
on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.- 
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, 
and this mortal shall have put on immortality; then shall 
be brought to pass the saying that is written. Death is

O grave, where is thy victory ? The sting of death is un, 
and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, 
which ^veth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmove- 
able, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch 
as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 

IT ffken they come to the Grave, while the Corpse is made ready to he

MAN that is bom of a woman hath but a short time 
to live, and is full of misery. He cometh up, and 
IS cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, 
and never continueth in one stay. 

In the midst of life we are in death : of whom may we 
seek for succour, but of thee, O Lord, who for our sins art 
justly displeased? 

Yet, O Lord God most holy, O Lord most mighty, 
O holy and most merciful Saviour, deliver us not into the 
bitter pains of eternal death. 

Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts; shut 
not tby merciful ears to our prayer; but spare us. Lord 
most holy, O God most mighty, O holy and merciful 
Saviour, thou most worthy Judge eternal, suffer us not. at 
our last hour, for any paius of death, to fall jfrom thee. 
IT Then, while the earth thall he cast upon the Bodg by ttmt ttanding

FORASMUCH as it hath pleased Almighty God of 
his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our 
dear brother here departed, we therefore commit his body 
to the ground ; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust ; 
in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal

our vile body, that it may be like unto his glorious body, 
according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to

NOW seeing that all they are accursed (as the prophet 
David beareth witness) who do err and go astray from 
the commandments of God ; let us (remembering the dread- 
ful judgement hanging over our heads, and ^ways ready 
to fall upon us) return unto our Lord God, with all con- 
trition and meekness of heart; bewailing and lamenting 
Qur sinful life, acknowled^ng and confessing our offences, 
and seeking to bring forth worthy fruits of penance. For 
now is the ax put unto the root of the trees, so that every 
tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and 
east into the fire. It is a fearful thing to fall into the 
hands of the living God: be shall pour down rain upon 
the sinners, snares, fire and brimstone, storm and tempest ; 
this shall be their portion to drink. For lo, the Lord is 
come out of his place to visit the wickedness of such aa 
dwell upon the earth. But who may abide the day of his 
coming ? Who shall be able to endure when he appeareth ?• 
His fan is in his hand, and he will purge his floor, and 
gather his wheat into the bam ; but be will bum the chaff

a thief in the night : and when men shall say, Peace, and 
all things are safe, then shall sudden destruction come up- 
on them, as sorrow cometh upon a woman travailing with' 
child, and they shall not escape. Then shall appear the 
wrath of God in the day of vengeance, which obstinate 
sinners, through the stubbornness of their heart, hare 
heaped unto themselves; which despised the goodness, 
patience, and long-snfierance of God, when he calleth them

early, but they shall not find me ; and that, because they 
hated knowledge, and received not the fear of the Lord, 
but abhorred my counsel, and despised my correction. Then 
shall it be too late to knock when the door shall be shut ; 
and too late to cry for mercy when it is the time of justice. 
O terrible voice of most just judgement, which shall be 
pronounced upon them, when it shall be said unto them. 
Go, ye cursed, into the fire everlasting, which is prepared 
for the devil and his angels. Therefore, brethren, take we 
heed betime, while the day of salvation lasteth; for the 
night Cometh, when none can work. But let us, while we 
have the light, believe in the light, and walk as children 
of the light ; that we be not cast into utter darkness, where 
is weeping and gnashing of teeth. Let us not abuse the 
goodness of God, who calleth us mercifidly to amendment,' 
and of his endless pity promiseth us forgiveness of that 
which is past, if with a perfect and true heart we return 
unto him. For though our sins be as red as scarlet, they 
shall be made white as snow ; and though they be like 
purple, yet they shall be made white as wool. Turn ye 
^saith the Lord) from all your wickedness, and your sin 
shall not be your destruction : Cast away from you all your 
nngodliness that ye have done : Make you new hearts, and 
a new spirit : Wherefore will ye die, O ye house of Israel, 
seeing that I have no pleasure in the death of him that 
dieth, saith the Lord God? Turn ye then, and ye shall 
live. Although we have sinned, yet have we an Advo- 
cate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous ; and he 
is the propitiation for our sins. For he was wounded for 
oar offences, and smitten for our wickedness. Let us there- 
fore return unto him, who is the merciful receiver of all 
true penitent sinners ; assuring ourselves that he is ready 
to receive us, and most willing to pardon us, if we come 
unto him with faithful repentance ; if we submit ourselves 
unto him, and from henceforth walk in his ways; if we 
will take his easy yoke, and light burden upon us, to follow 
him in lowliness, patience, and charity, and be ordered by 
the governance of his Holy Spirit; seeking always his 
glory, and serving him duly in oui vocation with thanka-

sins; Thy property is always to have mercy ; to thee only 
it appeitaineth to forgive sins. Spare us therefore, good 
Lord, spare thy people, whom thou hast redeemed ; enter. 
not into judgement with thy servants, who are vile earth, 
and miserable sinners; but so turn thine anger from us, 
who meekly acknowledge our vileness, and truly repent us 
of our faults, and so make haste to help us in this world, 
that we may ever live with thee in the world to come; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

TURN thou us, good Lord, and so shall we be 
turned. Be favourable, O Lord, Be &vourable to 
thy people, Who turn to thee in weeping, fasting, and 
praying. For thou art a merdful God, Full of com- 
passion. Long-suffering, and of great pity. Thou sparest 
when we deserve punishment. And in thy wrath thinkest 
upon mercy. Spare thy people good Lord, spare them. 
And let not thine heritage be brought to confusion. Hear 
us, O Lord, for thy mercy is great. And after the multi- 
tude of thy mercies look upon us; Through the merits 
and mediation of thy blessed Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

PSALM I. Beatua vir, qui non abiit ifc. 

BLESSED is the man that hath not 
walked in the counsel of the ungodly, 
nor stood in the way of sinners : and hath 
not sat in the seat of the scornful. 

2 But his deUght is in the law of the 
Lord : and in his law will he exercise 
himself day and night. 

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by 
the water-side : that will bring forth his 
fruit in due season. 

4 His leaf also shall not wither : and 
look, whatsoever he doetli, it shall prosper. 

5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with 
them : but they are like the chaff, which 
the wind scattereth away from the face of 
the earth. 

6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be 
able to stand in the judgement : neither 
the sinners in the congregation of the 
righteous. 

7 But the Lord knoweth the way of the 
righteous : and the way of the ungodly 
shall perish.

PSALM n. Quare/reimurunt genteaf 

WHY do the heathen so furiously rage 
together : and why do the people 
imagine a rain thing ? 

2 The kings of the earth stand up, and 
the rulers ta^e counsel together : against 
the Lord, and against his Anointed. 

3 Let us break their bonds asunder : 
and cast away their cords from us. 

4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall 
laugh them to scorn : the Lord shall have 
them in derision. 

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his 
wrath : and vex them in his sore displea- 
sure. 

6 Yet have I set my King : upon my 
holy hill of Sion. 

7 I will preach the law, whereof the 
Lord hath said unto me : Thou art my 
Son, this day have I begotten thee. 

8 Desire of me, and I shall give thee the 
heathen for thine inheritance : and the ut- 
most parts of the earth for thy possession. 

9 Thou shalt bruise them with a rod of 
iron : and break them in pieces like a 
potter's vessel. 

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings : be 
learned, ye that are judges of the earth. 

11 Serve the Lord in fear : and rejoice 
unto him with reverence.

PSALM in. Domine, quid muUiplkaM f 

LORD, how are they increased that 
trouble me : many are they that rise 
against me. 

2 Many one there be that say of my soul : 
There is no help for him in his God. 

3 But thou, O Lord, art my defender : 
thou art my worship, and the Ufter up of 
my head. 

4 I did call upon the Lord with my 
voice : and he heard me out of his holy bill. 

5 I laid me down and slept, and rose up 
again : for the Lord sustained me. 

6 I will not be afraid for ten thousands 
of the people : that have set themselves 
against me round about. 

7 Up, Lord, and help me, O my God : 
for thou smitest all mine enemies upon the 
cheek-bone ; thou hast broken the teeth of 
the ungodly. 

8 S^vation belongeth unto the Lord : 
and thy blessing is upon thy people. 

PSALM IV. Cvm invoearem,

3 Know this also, that the Lord hath 
chosen to himself the man that is godly : 
when I call upon the Lord, he will hear 
me. 

i Stand in awe, and sin not : commune 
with your own heart, and in your cham- 
ber, and be stiU. 

6 Offer the sacrifice of righteousness : 
and put your trust in the Lord. 

6 There be many that say : Who will 
shew us any good ? 

7 Lord, lift thou up : the Ught of thy 
countenance upon us. 

8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart : 
since the time that their com, and wine, 
and oil, increased. 

9 I will lay me down in peace, and take 
my rest : for it is thou, Lord, only, that 
makest me dwell in safety. 

PSALM V. Verba mea auribm.

2 O hearken thou unto the voice of my

5 Such as be foolish shall not stand in 
thy sight : for thou hatest all them that 
work vanity. 

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak 
leasing : the Lord will abhor both the 
blood-thirsty and deceitful man. 

7 But as for me, I will come into thine 
house, even upon the multitude of thy 
mercy : and in thy feai' will I worship 
toward thy holy temple. 

8 Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteous- 
ness, because of mine enemies : make thy 
way plain before my face. 

9 For there is no faithiidness in his 
mouth : their inward parts are very wick- 
edness. 

10 Their throat is an open sepulchre : 
they flatter with their tongue. 

: II Destroy thou them, O God ; let them 
perish through their own imaginations : cast 
them out in the multitude of their ungodli- 
ness ; for they have rebelled against thee. 

12 And let all them that put their trust 
in thee rejoice : they shall ever be giving 
of thanks, because thou defendest them ; 
they that love thy Name shall be joyfiil in 
thee;

PSALM Vn. Domine, Dem metis. 

OLORD my God, in thee have I put 
my trust : save me from all them that 
persecute me, and deliver me ; 

2 Lest he devour my soul, like a lion, and 
tear it in pieces : while there is none to help. 

3 O Lord my God, if I have done any 
such thing : or if there be any wickedness 
in my hands ; 

4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that 
dealt friendly with me : yea, I have delivered 
him that without any cause is mine enemy; 

6 Then let mine enemy persecute my 
soul, and take me : yea, let him tread my 
life down upon the earth, and lay mine 
honour in the dust. 

6 Stand up, O Lord, in thy wrath, and 
lift up thyself, because of the indignation 
of mine enemies : arise up for me in the 
judgement that thou hast commanded. 

7 And so shall the congregation of the 
people come about thee : for their sakes 
therefore lift up thyself again. 

8 The Lord shall judge the people ; give 
seatence with me, O Lord : according' to 
my righteousness, and according to the 
innocency that is in me. 

9 O let the wickedness of the ungodly 
come to an end : but guide thou the just. 

10 For the righteous God : trieth the 
very hearts and reins.

serveth them that are true of heart. 

12 God is a righteous Judge, strong, and 
patient : and God is provoked every day. 

13 If a man will not turn, he will whet 
his sword : he hath bent his bow, and 
made it ready. 

14 He hath prepared for him the instru- 
ments of death : he ordaineth his arrows 
against the persecutors. 

15 Behold, he travaileth with mischief : 
he hath conceived sorrow, and brought 
forth ungodliness. 

16 He hath graven and digged up a pit : 
and is fallen himself into die destruction 
that he made for other. 

17 For his travail shall come upon his 
own head : and his wickedness shall fall 
on his own pate. 

18 I will give thanks unto the Lord, 
according to his righteousness : and I will 
praise the Name of the Lord most High.

5 Thou madest him lower than the angels : 
to crown him with glory and worship. 

6 Thou makest him to have dominion of 
the works of thy hands : and thou hast put 
all things in subjection under his feet ; 

7 All sheep and oxen : yea, and the 
beasts of the field ;

Day 2. THE PSALMS. 

5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, and 
destroyed the ungodly : thou hast put out 
their name for ever and ever. 

6 O thou enemy, destructions are come 
to a perpetual end : even as the cities 
which thou hast destroyed ; their memo- 
rial is perished with them. 

7 But the Ix)rd shall endure for ever : he 
hath also prepared his seat for judgement. 

8 For he shall judge the world in righ- 
teousness : and minister true judgement 
unto the people. 

9 The Lord also will be a defence for 
the oppressed : even a refuge in due time 
of trouble. 

10 And they that know thy Name will 
put their trust in thee : for thou, Lord, 
hast never failed them that seek thee. 

11 O praise the Lord which dwelleth ia 
Sion : shew the people of his doings. 

12 For, when he maketh inquisition for 
blood, he remembereth them : and forget- 
teth not the complaint of the poor. 

: 13 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; con- 
sider the trouble which I suffer of them 
that hate me : thou that liflest me up from 
the gates of death. 

14 That I may shew all thy praises 
within the ports of the daughter of Sion : 
I will rejoice in thy salvation. 

15 The heathen are sunk down in the

pit that they niade : in the same net which 
they hid privily, is their foot taken. 

16 The Lord is known to execute judge- 
jnent : the ungodly is trapped in the work 
of his own hands. 

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell : 
and all the people that forget God. 

18 For the poor shall not alway be for- 
gotten : the patient abiding of the meek 
shall not perish for ever. 

19 Up, Lord, and let not man have the 
upper hand : let the heathen be judged in 
thy sight. 

20 Put them in fear, O Lord : that the hea- 
then may know themselves to be but men. 

PSALM X. m quid, amine f 

TjlTHY standest thou so far off, O Lord : 
*T and hidest thy face in the neediid 
time of trouble ? 

2 The ungodly for his own lust doth per- 
secute the poor : let them be taken in the 
crafty wiliness that they have imagined. 

3 For the ungodly hath made boast of 
his own heart's desire : and speaketh good 
of the covetous, whom God abhorreth. 

i The ungodly is so proud, that he 
careth not for God : neither is God in all 
his thoughts. 

5 His ways are alway grievous : thy 
judgements are far above out of his sight, 
and therefore defieth he all his enemies. 



Day 2. THE PSALMS. 

6 For he hath said in his heart, Tush, 
I shall never be cast down : there shall no 
harm happen unto me. 

7 His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, 
and fraud : under his tongue is ungodliness 
and vanity. 

8 He sitteth lurking in the thievish 
comers of the streets : and privily in his 
lurking dens doth he murder the innocent ; 
his eyes are set against the poor. 

9 For he lieth waiting secretly, even as 
a lion lurketh he in his den : that he may 
ravish the poor. 

10 He doth ravish the poor : when he 
getteth him into his net. 

11 He falleth down, and humbleth him- 
self : that the congregation of the poor 
may fall into the hands of his captains. 

12 He hath said in his heart, Tush, God 
hath forgotten : he hideth away his face, 
and he will never see it. 

13 Arise, O Lord God, and lift up thine 
hand : forget not the poor. 

14 Wherefore should the wicked blas- 
pheme God : while he doth say in hb 
heart. Tush, thou God carest not for it. 

15 Surely thou hast seen it : for thou 
beholdest ungodliness and wrong. 

16 That thou mayest take the matter into 
thine hand : the poor committeth himself unto 
thee; for thou art the helper of the friendless. 



THE PSALMS. Day 2. 

17 Break thou the power of the ungodly 
and malicious : take away his ungodliness, 
and thou shalt find none. 

18 The Lord is King for ever and ever : 
and the heathen are perished out of the land. 

19 Lord, thou hast heard the desire of 
the poor : thou preparest their heart, and 
thine ear hearkeneth thereto ; 

20 To help the fatherless and poor unto 
their right : that the man of the earth be 
no more exalted against them. 

PSALM XL In Domino txmfido. 

IN the Lord put I my trust : how say 
ye then to my soul, that she should flee 
as a bird unto the hill ? 

2 For lo, the ungodly bend their bow, 
and make ready their arrows within the 
quiver : that they may privily shoot at 
them which are true of heart 

3 For the foundations will be cast down : 
and what hath the righteous done ? 

4 The Lord is in his holy temple : the 
Lord's seat is in heaven. 

5 His eyes consider the poor : and bis 
eye-lids try the children of men. 

6 The Lord alloweth the righteous : but 
the ungodly, and him that delighteth in 
wickedness doth his soul abhor. 

7 Upon the ungodly he shall rain snares, 
fire and brimstone, storm and tempest : 
this shall be their portion to drink.

neighbour : they do but flatter with their

sighing of the poor,

help every one from him that swelleth

2 How long shall I seek counsel in my 
soul, and be so vexed in my heart : how 
long shall mine enemies triumph over me? 

3 Consider, and hear me, O Lord my 
God : lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not 
in death. 

4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed 
against him : for if I be cast down, they 
that trouble me will rejoice at it. 

5 But my trust is in thy mercy : and 
my heart is joyful in thy salvation.

upon the children of men : to see if there 
were any that would understand, and seek 
after God. 

4 But they are all gone out of the way,

they are altogether become abominable : 
there is none that doeth good, no not one. 

6 Their throat is an open sepulchre, with 
their tongues have they deceived : the 
poison of asps is under their lips. 

6 Their mouth is fidl of cursing and bit- 
terness : their feet are swift to shed blood. 

7 Destruction and unhappiness is in their 
ways, and the way of peace have they not 
known : there is no fear of God before 
their eyes. 

8 Have they no knowledge, that they are 
all such workers of mischief : eating up my 
people as it were bread, and call not upon 
the Lord ? 

9 There were they brought in great 
fear, even where no fear was : for God is 
in the generation of the righteous. 

10 As for you, ye have made a mock 
at the counsel of the poor : because he 
putteth his trust in the Lord.

rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

his pavilion round about him with dark 
water, and thick clouds to cover him. 

12 At the brightness of his presence his 
clouds removed : hail-stones, and coals of 
fire.

ven, and the Highest gave his thunder : 
hail-stones, and coals of fire. 

14 He sent out his arrows, and scati 
tered them : he cast forth lightnings, and 
destroyed them. 

15 The springs of waters were seen, and 
the foundations of the round world were 
discovered, at thy chiding, O Lord : at 
the blasting of the breath of thy displea- 
sure. 

16 He shall send down from on high to 
fetch me : and shall take me out of many 
waters. 

17 He shall deliver me from my strong- 
est enemy, and from them which hate me : 
for they are too mighty for me.

and will not cast out his commandments

after my righteous dealing : and according

hast heard me also from among the horns

brethren : in the midst of the congrega-

23 O praise the Lord, ye that fear him : 
magnify him, all ye of the seed of Jacob,

14 1 am clean forgotten, as a dead man out 
of mind : I am become like a broken vessel. 

15 For I have heard the blasphemy of the 
multitude : and fear is on every side, while 
they conspire together against me, and take 
their counsel to take away my life. 

16 But my hope hath been in thee, O 
Lord : I have said, Thou art my God. 

17 My time is in thy hand ; deUver me 
firom the hand of mine enemies : and from 
them that persecute me. 

18 Shew thy servant the light of thy coim- 
tenance : and save me for thy mercy's sake. 

19 Let me not be confounded, O Lord, 
for I have called upon thee : let the un- 
godly be put to confusion, and be put to 
silence in the grave. 



THE PSALM& Days. 

20 Let the lying lips be put to sQence : 
which cruelly, disdaiafiilly, and despiteful- 
ly, speak against the righteous. 

21 O how plentiful is thy goodness, which 
thou hast laid up for them that fear thee : 
and that thou hast prepared for them that 
put their trust in thee, even before the song 
of men ! 

22 Thou shalt hide them privily by thine 
own presence from the provoking of all 
men : thou shalt keep them secretly in thy 
tabernacle from the strife of tongues. 

23 Thanks be to the Lord : for he hath 
shewed me marvellous great kindness in a 
strong city. 

21 And when I made haste, I said : I am 
cast out of the sight of thine eyes. 

25 Nevertheless, thou heardest the voice 
of my prayer : when I cried unto thee. 

26 O love the Lord, all ye his saints : for 
the Lord preserveth them that are faithful, 
and plenteously rewardeth the proud doer. 

27 Be strong, and he shall establish your 
heart : all ye that put your trust in the 
Lord.

5 I will acknowledge my sin unto thee : 
and mine unrighteousness have I not hid. 

6 I said, I will confess my sins unto the 
Lord : and so thou forgavest the wicked-

7 For this shall every one that is godly 
make his prayer unto thee, in a time when 
thou mayest be found : but in the great 
water-floods they shall not come nigh him. 

8 Thou art a place to hide me in, thou 
shalt preserve me {torn trouble : thou shalt 
compass me about vrith songs of deliver- 
ance. 

9 I will inform thee, and teach thee in 
the way wherein thou shalt go : and I will 
guide thee with mine eye. 

10 Be ye not like to horse and mule, 
which have no understanding : whose 
mouths must be held with bit and bridle, 
lest they fall upon thee. 

11 Great plagues remain for the ungodly : 
but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord,

3 Sing unto the Lord a new song : sing 
praises lustily unto him with a good courage. 

4 For the word of the Lord is true : 
and all his works are faithiul. 

5 He loTcth righteousness and judge-

of the Lord. 

6 By the word of the Lord were the 
heavens made : and all the hosts of them 
by the breath of his mouth. 

7 He gathereth the waters of the sea 
together, as it were upon an heap : and 
layeth up the deep, as m a treasure-house. 

8 Let all the earth fear the Lord : stand 
in awe of him, all ye that dwell in the world. 

9 For he spake, and it was done : he 
commanded, and it stood fast. 

10 The Lord bringeth the counsel of the 
heathen to nought : and maketh the de-

and casteth out the counsels of princes.

and beheld all the children of men : &om 
the habitation of his dwelling he consider- 
eth all them that dwell on the earth. 

14 He fashioneth all the hearts of them : 
and understandeth all their works. 

15 There is no king that can be saved 
by the multitude of an host : neither is any 
mighty man deUvered by much strength. 

16 A horse is counted but a vain thing 
to save a man : neither shall he deliver any 
man by his great strength. 

17 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon 
them that fear him : and upon them diat 
put their trust in his mercy ; 

18 To deliver their soul from death : and 
to feed them in the time of dearth. 

19 Our soul hath patiently tarried for the 
Lord : for he is our nelp, and our shield. 

20 For our heart shall rejoice in him : 
because we have hoped in his holy Name.

a man peace at the last. 

39 As for the transgressors, they shall 
perish together : and the end of the ungodly 
is, they shall be rooted out at the last. 

40 But the salvation of the righteous 
Cometh of the Lord : who is also their 
strength in the time of trouble. 

41 And the Lord shall stand by them, 
and save them : he shall deliver them firom 
the ungodly, and shall save them, because 
they put their trust in him.

against him : and now that he lieth, let 
him rise up no more. 

9 Yea, even mine own familiar friend,

bread, hath laid great wait for me. 

10 But be thou merciftil unto me, O

prayer unto the God of my life. 

Hi will say unto the God of my strength. 
Why hast thou forgotten me : why go I thus 
heavily, while the enemy oppresseth me ? 

12 My bones are smitten asunder as with 
a sword : while mine enemies that trouble 
me cast me in the teeth ;

thou hast destroyed the nations, and cast 
them out. 

3 For they gat not the land in possession 
through their own sword : neither was it 
their own arm that helped them ; 

4 But thy right hand, and thine arm, 
and the light of thy countenance : because 
thou hadst a favour unto them. 

5 Thou art my King, O God : send help 
unto Jacob. 

6 Through thee will we overthrow our 
enemies : and in thy Name will we tread 
them under, that rise up against us. 

7 For I will not trust in my bow : it is 
not my sword that shall help me ; 

8 But it is thou that savest us from our 
enemies : and puttest them to coniiision 
that hate us. 

9 We make our boast of God all day 
long : and will praise thy Name for ever. 

10 But now thou art far off, and puttest 
us to coniiision : and goest not forth with 
our armies. 

H Thou makest us to turn our backs 
upon our enemies : so that they which 
hate us spoil our goods. 

12 Thou lettest us be eaten up like sheep : 
and hast scattered us among the heathen. 

13 Thou sellest thy people for nought : 
and takest no money for them. 



THE PSALMS. Day 9. 

14 Thou makest us to be rebuked of our 
neighbours : to be laughed to scorn, and had 
in derision of them that are round about us. 

15 Thou makest us to be a by-word 
among the heathen : and that the people 
shake their heads at us. 

16 Mj confiision is daily before me : and 
the shame of my face hath covered me ; 

17 For the voice of the slanderer and 
blasphemer : for the enemy and avenger. 

18 And though all this be come upon 
us, yet do we not forget thee : nor behave 
ourselves frowardly in thy covenant. 

19 Our heart is not turned back : neither 
our steps gone out of thy way ; 

20 No, not when thou hast smitten us 
into the place of dragons : and covered us 
with the shadow of death. 

21 If we have forgotten the Name of our 
God, and holden up our hands to any strange 
god : shall not God search it out? for he 
knoweth the very secrets of the heart. 

22 For thy sake also are we killed all 
the day long : and are counted as sheep 
appointed to be slain. 

23 Up, Lord, why sleepest thou : awake, 
and be not absent from us for ever. 

24 Wherefore hidest thou thy &ce : and 
forgettest our misery and trouble ? 

25 For our soul is brought low, even unto 
the dust : our bellj cleaveth unto the groundi

PSALM XLV. Eruetamt eormeum. 

MY heart is inditing of a good matter : 
I speak of the things which I have 
made unto the King. 

2 My tongue is the pen : of a ready writer. 

3 Thou art fairer than the children of 
men : full of grace are thy lips, because 
God hath bless^ thee for ever. 

4 Gird thee with thy sword upon thy 
thigh, O thou most Mighty : according to 
thy worship and renown. 

5 Good luck have thou with thine ho- 
nour : ride on, because of the word of truth, 
of meekness, and righteousness ; and thy 
right hand shall teach thee terrible things. 

6 Thy arrows are very sharp, and the 
people shall be subdued unto thee : even 
in the midst among the King's enemies. 

1 Thy seat, O God, endureth for ever : the 
sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. 

8 Thou hast loved righteousness, and 
hated iniquity : wherefore God, even thy 
God, hath anointed thee with the oil of 
gladness above thy fellows. 

9 All thy garments smell of myrrh, aloes, 
and cassia : out of the ivory palaces, where- 
by they have made thee glad. 

10 Kings' daughters were among thy ho- 
nourable women : upon thy right hand did

stand the queen in a vesture of gold, wrought 
about with divers colours. 

11 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, 
incline thine ear : forget also thine own 
people, and thy father's house. 

12 So shall the King have pleasure in 
thy beauty : for he is Uiy Lord God, and 
worship thou him. 

13 And the daughter of Tyre shall be 
there with a gift : like as the rich also 
among the people shall make their suppli- 
cation before thee. 

14 The King's daughter is all glorious 
within : her clothing is of wrought gold. 

15 She shall be brought unto the King 
in raiment of needle-work : the virgins that 
be her fellows shall bear her company, and 
shall be brought unto thee. 

16 With joy and gladAess shall they be 
brought : and shall enter into the King's 
palace. 

17 Instead of thy fathers thou shalt have 
children : whom thou mayest make princes 
in all lands. 

18 I will remember thy Name from one 
generation to another : therefore shall the 
people give thanks unto thee, world with-

5 God is in the midst of her, therefore 
shall she not be removed : God shall help 
her, and that right early. 

6 The heathen make much ado, and 
the kingdoms are moved : but God hath 
shewed his voice, and the earth shall melt 
away. 

7 The Lord of hosts is with us : the 
God of Jacob is our refuge. 

8 O come hither, and behold the works 
of the Lord : what destruction he hath 
brought upon the earth. 

9 He maketh wars to cease in all the 
world : he breaketh the bow, and knappeth 
the spear in sunder, and bumeth the cha- 
riots in the fire. 

10 Be still then, and know that I am 
God : I will be exalted among the heathen, 
and I will be exalted in the earth.

9 God, according to thy Name, so is 
thy praise unto the world's end : thy right 
hand is full of righteousness. 

10 Let the mount Sion rejoice, and the 
daughter of Judah be glad : because of thy 
judgements. 

11 Walk about Sion, and go round about 
her : and tell the towers thereof. 

12 Mark well her bulwarks, set up her 
houses : that ye may tell them that come 
after.

5 Wherefore should I fear in the days

of my heels compasseth me roimd about ? 

6 There be some that put their trust in 
their goods : and boast themselves in the 
multitude of their riches. 

7 But no man may deliver his brother : 
nor make agreement unto God for him ; 

8 For it cost more to redeem their souls ; 
so that he must let that alone for ever ; 

9 Yea, though he live long : and see not 
the grave. 

10 For he seeth that wise men also die, 
and perish together : as well as the ignorant 
and foolish, and leave their riches for other. 

11 And yet they think that their houses 
shall continue for ever : and that their dwell- 
ing-places shall endure from one generation 
to another; and call the lands after their 
own names. 

12 Nevertheless, man will not abide in ho- 
nour : seeing he may be compared unto the

PSALM LXX. Beua in adjutorium. 

HASTE thee, O God, to deliver me : 
make haste to help me, O Lord. 

2 Let them be ashamed and confounded 
that seek after my soul : let them be turned 
backward and put to conftision that wish 
me evil. 

3 Let them for their reward be soon 
brought to shame : that cry over me. 
There, there. 

4 But let all those that seek thee be 
joyful and glad in thee : and let all such 
as delight in thy salvation say alway, The 
Lord be praised. 

5 As for me, I am poor and in misery : 
haste thee unto me, O God.

PSALM LXXI. In te, Domine^ ^eravi. 

IN thee, O Lord, have I put my trust, let 
me never be put to confusion : but rid 
me, and deliver me, in thy righteousness ; 
incline thine ear unto me, and save me. 

2 Be thou my strong hold, whereunto I 
may alway resort : thou hast promised to 
help me, for thou art my house of defence, 
and my castle. 

3 Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand 
of the ungodly : out of the hand of the 
unrighteous and cruel man. 

4 For thou, O Lord Grod, art the thing 
that I long for : thou art my hope, even 
from my youth. 

6 Through thee have I been holden up 
ever since I was bom : thou art he that 
took me out of my mother's womb ; my 
praise shall be always of thee. 

6 I am become as it were a monster un- 
to many : but my sure tnist is in thee. 

7 O let my mouth be filled with thy 
praise : that I may sing of thy glory and 
honour all the day long.

forsake me not when my strength faileth me.

10 Go not far from me, O God : my 
God, haste thee to help me. 

11 Let them be confounded and perish 
that are against my soul : let them be co- 
vered with shame and dishonour that seek 
to do me evil. 

12 As for me, I will patiently abide al- 
way : and will praise thee more and more. 

13 My mouti shall daily speak of thy 
righteousness and salvation : for I know 
no end thereof.. 

14 I will go forth in the strength of the 
Lord God : and will make mention of thy 
righteousness only. 

15 Thou, O God, hast taught me from 
my youth up until now : therefore will I 
tell of thy wondrous works. 

16 Forsake me not, O God, in mine old 
age, when I am gray-headed : until I have 
shewed thy strength unto this generation, 
and thy power to all them that are yet for 
to come. 

17 Thy righteousness, O God, is very 
high : and great things are they that thou 
hast done ; O God, who is like unto thee ? 

18 O what great troubles and adversities 
hast thou shewed me ! and yet didst thou

20 Therefore will I praise thee and thy 
faithfiilness, O God, playing upon an instru- 
ment of musick : unto ibee will I sing upon 
the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel. 

21 My lips will be &in when I sing un-

hast delivered.

confounded and brought unto shame that 
seek to do me evil.

kneel before him : his enemies shall lick

10 The kings of Thargis and of the isles

11 All kings shall fell down before him : 
all nations shall do him service.

he crieth : the needy also, and him that 
hath no helper. 

13 He shall be favourable to the simple 
and needy : and shall preserve the souls of 
the poor. 

14 He shall deliver their souls from fels^ 
hood and wrong : and dear shall their blood 
be in his sight. 

15 He shall live, and unto him shall be

praise him.

PSALM LXXm. Qmmhomalerad! 

TRULY God is loving unto Israel : even 
unto such as are of a clean heart. 

2 Nevertheless, my feet were almost 
gone : my treadings had weU-nigh slipt. 

3 And why ? I was grieved at the wic- 
ked : I do also see the imgodly in such 
prosperity. 

4 For they are in no peril of death : but 
are lusty and strong. 

5 They come in no misfortune like other 
folk : neither are they plagued like other 
men. 

6 And this is the cause that they are so 
holden with pride : and overwhelmed with 
cruelty.

Day 14. THE PSALMS. 

7 Their eyes swell with &tness : and they 
do even what they lust. 

8 They corrupt other, and speak of wic- 
ked blasphemy : their talking is against 
the most High. 

9 For they stretch forth their mouth 
unto the heaven : and their tongue goeth 
throng the world. 

10 Therefore £ill the people unto them : 
and thereout suck they no small advantage. 

11 Tush, say they, how should God per- 
ceive it : is there knowledge in the most 
High.' 

12 Lo, these are the ungodly, these pro- 
sper in the world, and these have riches in 
possession : and I said. Then have I cleansed 
my heart in vain, and washed mine hands 
in innocency. 

13 All the day long have I been punish- 
ed : and chastened every morning. 

14 Yea, and I had almost said even as 
they : but lo, then I should have condemn- 
ed the generation of thy children. 

15 Then thought I to understand this : 
but it was too hard for me, 

16 Until I went into the sanctuary of 
God : then understood I the end of these 
men; 

17 Namely, how thou dost set them in 
slippery places : and castest them down, 
and destroyest them.

THE PSALM8. Day 14. 

18 Oh, how suddenly do they consume : 
perish, and come to a fearful end ! 

19 Yea, even like aa a dream when one 
awaketh : so shalt thou make their image 
to vanish out of the city. 

20 Thus my heart was grieved : and it 
went even through my reins. 

21 So foolish was I, and ignorant : even 
as it were a beast before thee. 

22 Nevertheless, I am alway by thee : for 
thou hast holden me by my right hand. 

23 Thou shalt guide me with thy coun- 
sel : and after that receive me with glory. 

24 Whom have I in heaven but thee : 
and there is none upon earth that I desire 
in comparison of thee. 

25 My flesh and my heart faileth : but 
God is the strength of my heart, and my 
portion for ever. 

26 For lo, they that forsake thee shall 
perish : thou hast destroyed all them that 
commit fornication against thee. 

27 But it is good for me to hold me fast 
by God, to put my tnist in the Lord God : 
and to speak of all thy works in the gates 
of the daughter of Sion.

2 O think upon thy congregation : whom 
thou hast purdiased, and i-edeemed of old. 

3 Think upon the tribe of thine inherit- 
ance : and mount Sion, wherein thou hast 
dwelt. 

4 Lift up thy feet, that thou mayest 
utterly desteoy every enemy : which hath 
done evil in thy sanctuary. 

5 Thine adversaries roar in the midst of 
thy congregations : and set up their ban- 
ners for tokens. 

6 He that hewed timber afore out of the 
thick trees : was known to bring it to an 
excellent work. 

7 But now they break down all the 
carved work thereof : with axes and ham- 
mers. 

8 They have set fire upon thy holy places : 
and have defiled the dwelling-place of thy 
Name, even imto the ground. 

9 Yea, they said in their hearts, Let us 
make havock of them altogether : thus 
have they burnt up all the houses of God 
in the land, 

10 We see not our tokens, there is not 
one prophet more : no, not one is there 
among us, that understandeth any more. 

11 O God, how long shall the adversary 
do this dishonour : how long shall the ene- 
my blaspheme thy Name, for ever ? 

12 Why withdrawest thou thy hand :

why pluckest thou not thy right hand out 
of thy bosom to consume the enemy ? 

13 For God is my King of old : the help 
that is done upon earth he doeth it himself. 

14 Thou didst divide the sea through 
thy power : thou brakest the heads of the 
dragons in the waters. 

15 Thou smotest the heads of Leviathan 
in pieces : and gavest him to be meat for 
the people in the wilderness. 

16 Thou broughtest out fountains and 
waters out of the hard rocks : thou driedst 
up mighty waters. 

17 The day is thine, and the night is 
thine : thou hast prepared the light and 
the sun. 

18 Thou hast set all the borders of the 
earth : thou hast made summer and winter. 

19 Bemember this, O Lord, how the 
enemy hath rebuked : and how the foolish 
people hath blasphemed thy Name. 

20 O deliver not the soul of thy turtle- 
dove unto the multitude of the enemies : 
and forget not the congregation of the poor 
for ever. 

21 Look upon the covenant : for all the 
earth is fiill of darkness, and cruel habi-

PSALM LXXVni. AUendite,popuU. 

HEAR my law, O my people : incline 
your ears unto the words of my month. 

2 I will open my mouth in a parable : 
I will declare hard sentences of old ;

and such as our fathers have told us ; 

4 That we should not hide them &om 
the children of the generations to come : but 
to shew the honour of the Lord, his mighty 
and wonderful works that he hath done. 

5 He made a covenant with Jacob, and 
gave Israel a law : which he commanded 
our fore&thers to teach their children ; 

6 That their posterity might know it : 
and the children which were yet unborn ; 

7 To the intent that when they came up : 
they might shew their children the same ; 

8 That they might put their trust in 
God : and not to forget the works of God, 
but to keep his commandments ; 

9 And not to be as their forefathers, 
a faithless and stubborn generation : a 
generation that set not their heart aright, 
and whose spirit cleaveth not stedfastly 
unto God ; 

10 Like as the children of Ephraim : who

being harnessed, and carrying bows, turned 
themselves back in the day of battle. 

11 They kept not the covenant of God : 
and would not walk in his law ; 

12 But forgat what he had done : and 
the wonderful works that he had shewed 
for them. 

13 Marvellous things did he in the sight 
of our forefathers, in the land of Egypt : 
even in the field of Zoan. 

14 He divided the sea, and let them go 
through : he made the waters to stand on 
an heap. 

15 In the day-time also he led them 
with a cloud : and all the night through 
with a light of fire. 

16 He clave the hard rocks in the wil- 
derness : and gave them drink thereof, as 
it had been out of the great depth. 

17 He brought waters out of the stony 
rock : so that it gushed out like the rivers. 

18 Yet for all this they sinned more 
against him : and provoked the most High- 
est in the wilderness. 

19 They tempted God in their hearts : 
and required meat for their lust. 

20 They spake against God also, saying : 
Shall God prepare a table in the wilder- 
ness? 

21 He smote the stony rock indeed, that 
the water gushed out, and the streams

flowed withal : but can he give bread also, 
or provide flesh for his people ? 

22 When the Lord heard this, he was 
wroth ; so the fire was kindled in Jacob, 
and there came up heavy displeasure against 
Israel ; 

23 Because they believed not in God : 
and put not their trust in his help. 

21 So he commanded the clouds above : 
and opened the doors of heaven. 

25 He mned down manna also upon 
them for to eat : and gave them food from 
heaven. 

26 So man did eat angels' food : for he 
sent them meat enough. 

27 He caused the east-wind to blow 
under heaven : and through his power he 
brought in the south-west-wind. 

28 He rained flesh upon them as thick 
as dust : and feathered fowls like as the 
sand of the sea. 

29 He let it fell among their tents : even 
round about their habitation. 

30 So they did eat, and were well filled ; 
for he gave them their own desire : they 
were not disappointed of their lust. 

31 But while the meat was yet in their 
mouths, the heavy wrath of God came upon 
them, and slew the wealthiest of them : 
yea, and smote down the chosen men that 
were in Israel.

32 But for all this they sinned yet more : 
and believed not his wondrous works. 

33 Therefore their days did he consume 
in vanity : and their years in trouble. 

34 When he slew them, they sought him ; 
and turned them early, and enquired after 
God. 

35 And they remembered that God was 
their strength : and that the high God was 
their redeemer. 

36 Nevertheless, they did but flatter him 
with their mouth : and dissembled with 
him in their tongue. 

37 For their heart was not whole with 
him : neither continued they stedfast in his 
covenant. 

38 But he was so merciful, that he for- 
gave their misdeeds : and destroyed them 
not. 

39 Tea, many a time turned he his wrath 
away : and would not suffer his whole 
displeasiu'e to arise. 

40 For he considered that they were but 
flesh : and that they were even a wind that 
passeth away, and cometh not again. 

41 Many a time did they provoke him 
in the wilderness : and grieved him in the 
desert. 

42 They turned back, and tempted God : 
and moved the Holy One in Israel. 

43 They thought not of his hand : and

the hand of the enemy ; 

44 How he had wrought his miracles in 
Egypt : and his wonders in the field of 
Zoan. 

45 He turned their waters into blood : so 
that they might not drink of the rivers. 

46 He sent lice among them, and devour- 
ed them up : and frogs to destroy them. 

47 He gave their tnut unto the cater- 
pillar : and their labour unto the grass- 
hopper. 

48 He destroyed their vines with hail- 
stones : and their mulberry-trees with the 
frost 

49 He smote their cattle also with hail- 
stones : and their flocks with hot thunder- 
bolts. 

50 He cast upon them the iiiriousness of 
his wrath, anger, displeasure, and trouble : 
and sent evil angels among them. 

51 He made a way to his indignation,, 
and spared not their soul from death : but 
gave their life over to the pestilence ; 

52 And smote all the first-born in 
Egypt : the most principal and mightiest 
in the dwellings of Ham. 

53 But as for his own people, he led 
them forth like sheep : and carried them 
in the wilderness like a flock. 

54 He brought them out safely, that they

sbould not fear : and overwhelmed their 
enemies with the sea. 

65 And brought them within the bor- 
ders of his sanctuary : even to his mountain 
which he purchased with his right hand. 

56 He cast out the heathen also before 
them : caused their land to be divided 
among them for an heritage, and made the 
tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents. 

£7 So they tempted, and displeased the 
most high God : and kept not his testi- 
monies ; 

58 But turned their backs, and fell away, 
like their forefathers : starting aside like a 
broken bow. 

59 For they grieved him with their hill- 
altars : and provoked him to displeasure 
with their images. 

60 When God heard this, he was wroth : 
and took sore displeasure at Israel. 

61 So that he forsook the tabernacle in 
Silo : even the tent that he had pitched 
among men. 

62 He delivered their power into cap- 
tivity : and their beauty into the enemy's 
hand. 

63 He gave his people over also unto the 
sword : and was wroth with his inheritance. 

64 The fire consumed their young men : 
and their maidens were not given to mar- 
riage.

65 Their priests were slain with the

66 So the Lord awaked as one out of 
sleep : and like a giant refreshed with wine. 

67 He smote his enemies in the hinder 
parts : and put them to a perpetual shame. 

68 He refused the tabernacle of Joseph : 
and chose not the tribe of Ephraim ; 

69 But chose the tribe of Judah : even 
the hill of Sion which he loved. 

70 And there he built his temple on 
high : and laid the foundation of it like the 
ground which he hath made continually. 

71 He chose David also his servant : and 
took him away from the sheep-folds. 

72 As he was following the ewes great 
with young ones he took him : that he 
might feed Jacob his people, and Israel his 
inheritance. 

73 So he fed them with a faithful and 
true heart : and ruled them prudently with 
all his power.

those that are appointed to die. 

13 And for the blasphemy wherewith our 
neighbours have blasphemed thee : reward 
thou them, O Lord, seven-fold into their 
bosom. 

14 So we, that are thy people, and sheep 
of thy pasture, shall give thee thanks for 
ever : and will alway be shewing forth thy 
praise from generation to generation. 

PSALM LXXX. Qui regU Itrad. 

HEAR, O thou Shepherd of Israel, 
thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep : 
shew thyself also, thou that sittest upon the 
cherubims. 

2 Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Ma- 
nasses : stir up thy strength, and come, 
and help us. 

3 Turn us again, O God : shew the 
light of thy countenance, and we shall be 
whole. 

4 O Lord God of hosts : how long wilt 
thou be angry with thy people that pray- 
eth? 

6 Thou feedest them with the bread of 
tears : and givest them plenteousness of 
tears to drink. 

6 Thou hast made us a very strife unto 
our neighbours : and our enemies laugh us 
to scorn. 

7 Turn us again, thou GoA of hosts :

shew the light of thj countenance, and we

8 Thou hast brought a vine out of E- 
gypt : thou hast cast out the heathen, and 
planted it 

9 Thou madest room for it : and when 
it had taken root it filled the land. 

10 The hills were covered with the sha- 
dow of it : and the boughs thereof were 
like the goodly cedar-trees. 

11 She stretched out her branches unto 
the sea : and her boughs unto the river. 

12 Why hast thou then broken down 
her hedge : that all they that go by pluck 
off her grapes ? 

13 The wild boar out of the wood doth 
root it up : and the wild beasts of the field 
devour it. 

14 Turn thee again, thou God of hosts, 
look down from heaven : behold, and visit 
this vine ; 

15 And the place of the vineyard that thy 
right hand hath planted : and the branch 
that thou madest so strong for thyself. 

16 It is burnt with fire, and cut down : 
and they shall perish at the rebuke of thy 
countenance. 

17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy 
right hand : and upon the son of man, 
whom thou madest so strong for thine own 
self.

PSALM LXXXI. EamUate Deo. 

SING we merrily unto God our strength : 
make a cheerful noise unto the God of 
Jacob. 

2 Take the psalm, bring hither the ta- 
bret : the merry harp with the lute. 

3 Blow up the trumpet in the new-moon : 
even in the time appointed, and upon our 
solenm feast-day. 

4 For this was made a statute for Israel : 
and a law of the God of Jacob. 

5 This he ordained in Joseph for a tes- 
timony : when he came out of the land of 
Egypt, and had heard a strange language. 

6 I eased his shoulder from the burden : 
and his hands were delivered from making 
the pots. 

7 Thou calledst upon me in troubles, 
and I delivered thee : and heard thee what 
time as the storm fell upon thee. 

8 I proved thee also : at the waters of 
strife. 

9 Hear, O my people, and I will assure 
thee, O Israel : if thou wilt hearken unto 
me. 



THE PSALMS. Day 16. 

10 There shall no strange god be in thee : 
neither shalt thou worship any other god. 

11 I am the Lord thy God, who brought 
thee out of the land of Egypt : open thy 
mouth wide, and I shall fill it. 

12 But my people would not hear my 
voice : and Israel would not obey me. 

13 So I gave them up unto their own 
hearts' lusts : and let diem foUow their 
own imaginations. 

14 O that my people would have heark- 
ened unto me : for if Israel had walked in 
my ways, 

15 I should soon have put down their 
enemies : and turned my hand against their 
adversaries. 

16 The haters of the Lord should have 
been found liars : but their time should 
have endured for ever. 

17 He should have fed them also with the 
finest wheat-flour : and with honey out of 
the stony rock should I have satisfied thee.

2 For lo, thine enemies make a murmur- 
ing : and they that hate thee have lift up 
their head. 

3 They have imagined craftily against 
thy people : and taken counsel against thy 
secret ones. 

4 They have said, Come, and let us root 
them out, that they be no more a people : 
and that the name of Israel may be no 
more in remembrance. 

5 For they have cast their heads toge- 
ther with one consent : and are confederate 
against thee ;

9 But do thou to them as unto the 
Madianites : unto Sisera, and unto Jabin 
at the brook of Kison ; 

10 Who perished at Endor : and became 
as the dung of the earth. 

11 Make them and their princes like 
Oreb and Zeb : yea, make all tjieir princes 
like as Zeba and Salmana ;

13 O my God, make them like unto a 
wheel : and as the stubble before the wind ; 

14 Like as the fire that burneth up the 
wood : and as the flame that consameth the 
mountains. 

15 Persecute them even so with thy tem- 
pest : and make them afraid with thy storm. 

16 Make their feces ashamed, O Lord : 
that they may seek thy Name. 

17 I^t them be confounded and vexed 
ever more and more : let them be put to 
shame, and perish.

Name is Jehovah : art only the most High- 
est over all the earth.

enter into the courts of the Lord : my heart 
and my flesh rejoice in the living God. 

3 Yea, the sparrow hath found her an

7 Shew us thy mercy, O Lord : and 
grant us thy salvation. 

8 I will hearken what the Lord God

peace unto his people, and to his saints,

his seat is like as the sun before me. 

36 He shall stand fast for evermore as

thine Anointed : and art displeased at him.

39 Thou hast overthrown all his hedges : 
and broken down his strong holds. 

40 All they that go by spoil him : and 
he is become a reproach to his neighbours. 

41 Thou hast set up the right hand of 
his enemies : and made all his adversaries 
to rejoice. 

42 Thou hast taken away the edge of 
his sword : and givest him not victory in 
the battle. 

43 Thou hast put out his glory : and cast 
his throne down to the ground.

PSALM XCm. Domima regnant. 

TI£E Lord is King, and hath put on glo- 
rious apparel : the Lord hath put on his 
apparel, and girded himself with strength. 

2 He hath made the round world so sure : 
that it cannot be moved. 

3 Ever since the world began hath thy 
seat been prepared : thou art from ever- 
lasting. 

4 The floods are risen, O Lord, the floods 
have lift up their voice : the floods lift up 
their waves. 

5 The waves of the sea are mighty, and 
rage horribly : but yet the Lord, who 
dwelleth on high, is mightier. 

6 Thy testimonies, O Lord, are very sure : 
holiness becometh thine house for ever.

2 Arise, thou Judge of the vrorld : and 
reward the proud after their deserving. 

3 Lord, how long shall the ungodly : 
how long shall the ungodly triumph ? 

4 How long shall all wicked doers speak 
so disdainfully : and make such proud 
boasting ? 

5 They smite down thy people, O Lord : 
and trouble thine heritage. 

6 They murder the widow, and the stran- 
ger : and put the fatherless to death. 

7 And yet they say, Tush, the Lord shall 
not see : neither shall the God of Jacob 
regai'd it. 

8 Take heed, ye unwise among the peo- 
ple : O ye fools, when will ye understand ? 

9 He that planted the ear, shall he not 
hear : or he that made the eye, shall he not 
see? 

10 Or he that nurtureth the heathen : 
it is he that teacheth man knowledge, shall 
not he punish ? 

11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of 
man : that they are but vain. 

12 Blessed is the man whom thou chasten- 
est, O Lord : and teachest him in thy law ; 

13 That thou mayest give him patience 
in time of adversity : until the pit be dig- 
ged up for the ungodly. 

14 For the Lord will not fell his people : 
neither will he forsake his inheritance ;

15 Until righteousness turn again unto 
judgement : all such as are true in heart 
shall follow it. 

16 Who win rise up with me against the 
wicked : or who will take my pai't against 
the evil-doers ? 

17 If the Lord had not helped me : it 
had not failed but my soul had been put 
to silence. 

18 But when I said, My foot hath slipt : 
thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. 

19 In the multitude of the sorrows that 
I had in my heart : thy comforts have re- 
freshed my soul. 

20 Wilt thou have any thing to do with 
the stool of wickedness : which imagineth 
mischief as a law ? 

21 They gather them together against 
the soul of the righteous : and condemn 
the innocent blood. 

22 But the Lord is my refuge : and my 
God is the strength of my confidence. 

23 He shall recompense them their wicked- 
ness, and destroy them in their own malice : 
yea, the Lord our God shall destroy them.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the

rejoice before the Lord.

3 There shall go a fire before him : and

8 Mine enemies revile me all the day

11 My days are gone like a shadow :

he remembereth that we are but dust. 

15 The days of man are but as grass : 
for he flourisheth as a flower of the field. 

16 For as soon as the wind goeth over

7 At thy rebuke they flee : at the voice

8 They go up as high as the hills, and

ness in remembrance : but were disobedient 
at the sea, even at the Red sea. 

8 Nevertheless, he helped them for his 
Name's sake : that he might make his 
power to be known. 

9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it 
was dried up : so he led them through the 
deep, as through a wilderness. 

10 And he saved them from the adver- 
sary's hand : and delivered them from the 
hand of the enemy. 

11 As for those that troubled them, the 
waters overwhelmed them : there was not 
one of them left. 

13 Then believed they his words : and 
sang praise unto him. 

13 But within a while they forgat his 
works : and would not abide his counsel. 

14 But lust came upon them in the wil-

demess : and they tempted God in the 
desert. 

15 And he gave them their desire : and 
sent leanness withal into their soul. 

16 They angered Moses also in the tents : 
and Aaron the saint of the Lord. 

17 So the earth opened, and swallowed 
up Dathan : and covered the congregation 
of Abiram. 

18 And the fire was kindled in their com- 
pany : the flame burnt up the ungodly. 

19 They made a calf in Horeb : and 
worshipped the molten image. 

20 Thus they turned their glory : into 
the similitude of a calf that eateth hay. 

21 And they forgat God their Saviour : 
who had done so great things in Egypt ; 

22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham : 
and fearful things by the Red sea. 

23 So he said, he would have destroyed 
them, had not Moses his chosen stood before 
him in the gap : to turn away his wrathful 
indignation, lest he should destroy them. 

24 Yea,they thought scorn of that pleasant 
land : and gave no credence unto his word ; 

26 But murmured in their tents : and 
hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord. 

26 Then lift he up his hand against them : 
to overthrow them in the wilderness ; 

27 To cast out their seed among the na- 
tions : and to scatter them in the lands. 



Jay 21. THE PSALMS. 

28 They joined themselves unto Baal- 
peor : and ate the offerings of the dead. 

29 Thus they provoked him to anger 
with their own inventions : and the plague 
was great among them. 

30 Then stood up Phinees and prayed : 
and so the plague ceased. 

31 And that was counted unto him for 
righteousness : among all posterities for 
evermore. 

32 They angered him also at the waters 
of strife : so that he punished Moses for 
their sakes ; 

33 Because they provoked his spirit : so 
that he spake unadvisedly with his lips. 

34 Neither destroyed they the heathen : 
as the Lord commanded them ; 

35 But were mingled among the heathen : 
and learned their works. 

36 Insomuch that they worshipped their 
idob, which turned to their ovra decay : yea, 
they offered their sons and their daughters 
unto devils ; 

37 And shed innocent blood, even the 
blood of their sons and of their daughters : 
whom they offered unto the idols of Canaan ; 
and the land was defiled with blood. 

38 Thus were they stained with their 
own works : and went a whoring with their 
own inventions. 

39 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord 



THE PSALMS. Day 22. 

kindled against his people : insomuch that 
he abhorred his own inheritance. 

40 And he gave them over into the hand 
of the heathen : and they that hated them 
were lords over them. 

41 Their enemies oppressed them : and 
had them in subjection. 

42 Many a time did he deliver them : 
but they rebelled against him with their 
own inventions, and were brought down in 
their wickedness. 

43 Nevertheless, when he saw their ad- 
versity : he heard their complaint. 

44 He thought upon his covenant, and 
pitied them, according unto the multitude 
of his mercies : yea, he made all those that 
led them away captive to pity them. 

45 Deliver us, O Lord our God, and 
gather us from among the heathen : that 
we may give thanks unto thy holy Name, 
and make our boast of thy praise. 

46 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel 
jirom everlasting, and world without end : 
and let all the people say, Amen.

hath redeemed : and delivered from the 
hand of the enemy ; 

3 And gathered them out of the lands, 
from the east, and from the west : from 
the north, and from the south. 

4 They went astray in the wilderness out 
of the way : and found no city to dwell in ; 

5 Hungry and thirsty : their soul fiiinted 
in them. 

6 So they cried unto the Lord in their 
trouble : and he delivered them from their 
distress. 

7 He led them forth by the right way : 
that they might go to the city where they 
dwelt. 

8 O that men would therefore praise the 
Lord for his goodness : and declare the 
wonders that he doeth for the children of 
men! 

9 For he satisfieth the empty soul : and 
fiUeth the hungry soul with goodness. 

10 Such as sit in darkness, and in the 
shadow of death : being fast bound in mi- 
sery and iron ; 

11 Because they rebelled against the words 
of the Lord : and lightly regarded the coun- 
sel of the most Highest ; 

12 He also brought down their heart 
through heaviness : they fell down, and 
there was none to help them. 

13 So when they cried unto the Lord

their distress. 

14 For he brought them out of darkness, 
and out of the shadovr of death : and brake 
their bonds in sunder. 

15 O that men would therefore praise 
the liord for his goodness : and declare the 
wonders that he doeth for the children of 
men! 

16 For he hath broken the gates of brass : 
and smitten the bars of iron in sunder. 

17 Foolish men are plagued for their 
offence : and because of their wickedness. 

18 Their soul abhorred all manner of 
meat : and they were even hard at death's 
door. 

19 So when they cried unto the Lord in 
their trouble : he delivered them out of 
their distress. 

20 He sent his word, and healed them : 
and they were saved from their destruction. 

21 O that men would therefore praise the 
Lord for his goodness : and declare the won- 
ders that he doeth for the children of men ! 

22 That they would offer unto him the 
sacrifice of thanksgiving : and tell out his 
works with gladness ! 

23 They that go down to the sea in ships : 
and occupy their business in great waters ; 

24 These men see the works of the Lord : 
and his wonders in the deep.

and down again to the deep : their soul 
melteth away because of the trouble. 

27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like 
a drunken man : and are at their wit's end. 

28 So when they cry unto the Lord in 
their trouble : he delivereth them out of 
their distress. 

29 For he maketh the storm to cease : 
so that the waves thereof are still.

at rest : and so he bringeth them unto the 
haven where they would be. 

31 O that men would therefore praise the 
Lord for his goodness : and declare the won-

32 That they would exalt him also in 
the congregation of the people : and praise 
him in the seat of the elders ! 

33 Who tumeth the floods into a wilder- 
ness : and drieth up the water-springs. 

34 A fruitful land maketh he barren : for 
the wickedness of them that dwell therein. 

35 Again, he maketh the wilderness a 
standing water : and water-springs of a dry 
ground. 

86 And there he setteth the hungry : that 
they may build them a city to dwell in ; 
37 That they may sow their land, and

cattle to decrease. 

39 And again, when they are minished, 
and brought low : through oppression, 
through, any plague, or trouble ; 

40 Though he suffer them to be evil 
intreated through tyrants : and let them 
wander out of tne way in the wilderness ; 

41 Yet helpeth he the poor out of misery : 
and maketh him honsholds like a flock of 
sheep.

and they shall understand the loving-kind-

3 For the love that I had unto them,

I give myself unto prayer. 

4 Thus have they rewarded me evil for

to do good : but persecuted the poor help- 
less man, that he might slay him that was 
vexed at the heart. 

16 His delight was in cursing, and it 
shall happen unto him : he loved not bless-

his bowels like water, and like oil into his 
bones.

evil against my soul.

PSALM CXrV. In exitu Jsrad. 

WHEN Israel came out of Egypt : and 
the house of Jacob from among the 
strange people, 

2 Judah was his sanctuary : and Israel 
his dominion.

was driven back.

the little hills like young sheep. 

5 What aileth thee, O thou sea, that thou 
fleddest : and thou Jordan, that thou wast 
driven back ? 

6 Ye mountains, that ye skipped like 
rams : and ye little hills, like young sheep ? 

7 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence 
of the liord : at the presence of the God 
of Jacob ;

springing well.

2 Wherefore shall the heathen say : Where 
is now their God ? 

3 As for our God, he is in heaven : he 
hath done whatsoever pleased him. 

4 Their idols are silver and gold : even 
the work of men's hands. 

5 They have mouths, and speak not : 
eyes have they, and see not. 

6 They have ears, and hear not : noses 
have they, and smell not. 

7 They have hands, and handle not ; feet 
have they, and walk not : neither speak 
they through their throat. 

8 They that make them are like unto 
them : and so are all such as put their 
trust in them. 

9 But thou, house of Israel, trust thou in 
the Lord : he is their succour and defence. 

10 Ye house of Aaron, put your trust in 
the Lord : he is their helper and defender. 

11 Ye that fear the Lord, put your trust 
in the Lord : he is their helper and de- 
fender. 

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us, 
and he shall bless us : even he shall bless 
the house of Israel, he shall bless the house 
of Aaron. 

13 He shall bless them that fear the 
Lord : both small and great.

that I may go into them, and give thanks

LORD, remember David : and all his 
trouble ; 

2 How he sware unto the Lord : and 
vowed a vow unto the Almighty God of 
Jacob; 

3 I will not come within the tabernacle of 
mine house : nor climb up into my bed ; 

4 I will not suffer mine eyes to sleep, 
nor mine eye-lids to slumber : neither the 
temples of my head to take any rest ; 

5 Until I find out a place for the temple 
of the Lord : an habitation for the mighty 
God of Jacob. 

6 Lo, we heard of the same at Ephi-ata : 
and found it in the wood. 

7 We will go into his tabernacle : and fell 
low on our knees before his footstool. 

8 Arise, O Lord, into thy resting-place : 
thou, and the ark of thy strength. 

9 Let thy priests be clothed with right- 
eousness : and let thy saints sing with joy- 
fiilness.

Day 2a THE PSALMS. 

10 For thy servant David's sake : turn 
not away the presence of thine Anointed. 

11 The Lord hath made a faithful oath 
unto David : and he shall not shrink from it ; 

12 Of the fruit of thy body : shall I set 
upon thy seat. 

13 If thy children will keep my cove- 
nant, and my testimonies that I shall learn 
them : their children also shall sit upon thy 
seat for evermore. 

14 For the Lord hath chosen Sion to be 
an habitation for himself : he hath longed 
for her. 

15 This shall be my rest for ever : here 
will I dwell, for I have a delight therein. 

16 I will bless her victuals with increase : 
and will satisfy her poor with bread. 

17 I will deck her priests with health : 
and her saints shall rejoice and sing. 

18 There shall I make the horn of David 
to flourish : I have ordained a lantern for 
mine Anointed. 

19 As for his enemies, I shall clothe them 
with shame : but upon himself shall his 
crown flourish. 

PSALM CXXXni. Em,qmmhotam' 

BEHOLD, how good and joyfiil a thing 
it is : brethren, to dweU together in 
unity ! 

2 It is like the precious ointment upon 
the head, that ran down unto the beard :

even unto Aaron's beard, and went down 
to the skirts of his clothing. 

3 Liike as the dew of Hermon : which 
fell upon the hill of Sion. 

4 For there the Lord promised his bless- 
ing : and life for evermore. 

PSALM CXXXIV. Em fame. 

BEHOLD now, praise the Lord : all ye 
sei-vants of the Lord ; 

2 Ye that by night stand in the house of 
the Lord : even in the courts of the house 
of our God. 

3 Lifl up your hands in the sanctuary : 
and praise the Lord. 

4 The Lord that made heaven and earth : 
give thee blessing out of Sion. 

PSALM CXXXV. Laudate Nomen. 

PRAISE the Lord, laud ye the Name 
of the Lord : praise it, O ye servants 
of the Lord ; 

2 Ye that stand in the house of the Lord : 
in the courts of the house of our God. 

3 O praise the Lord, for the Lord is 
gracious : O sing praises unto his Name, 
for it is lovely. 

4 For why? the Lord hath chosen Ja- 
cob unto himself : and Israel for his own 



5 For I know that the Lord is great : 
and that our Lord is above all gods. 

6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did

and in all deep places. 

7 He bringeth forth the clouds from the 
ends of the world : and gendeth forth light- 
nings with the rain, bringing the winds out 
of his treasures. 

8 He smote the first-born of Egypt : both 
of man and beast 

9 He hath sent tokens and wonders into 
the midst of thee, O thou land of Egypt : 
upon Pharaoh, and all his servants. 

10 He smote divers nations : and slew 
mighty Icings ; 

11 Sehon king of the Amorites, and Og 
the king of Basan : and all the kingdoms 
of Canaan ; 

12 And gave their land to be an heritage : 
even an heritage unto Israel his people. 

13 Thy Kame, O Lord, endureth for 
ever : so doth thy memorial, O Lord, from 
one generation to another. 

14 For the lioi'd will avenge his people : 
imd be gracious unto his servants. 

15 As for the images of the heathen, they 
are but silver and gold : the work of men's 
hands. 

16 They have mouths, and speak not : 
eyes have they, but they see not. 

17 They have ears, and yet they hear 
not : neither is there any breath in their 
mouths.

out arm : for his mercy endureth for ever. 

13 Who divided the Red sea in two

14 And made Israel to go through the

overthrew them in the Red sea : for his

PSALM CXXXVn. Super fltmkia. 

BY the waters of Babylon we sat down 
and wept : when we remembered thee, 
O Sion. 

2 As for our harps, we hanged them up : 
upon the trees that are therein. 

3 For they that led us away captive re- 
quired of us then a song, and melody, in our 
heaviness : Sing us one of the songs of Sion. 

4 How shsul we sing the Lord's song : 
in a strange land ? 

5 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem : let my 
right hand forget her cunning. 

6 If I do not remember thee, let my 
tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth : 
yea, if I prefer not Jerusalem in my mirth. 

7 Remember the children of Edom, O 
Lord, in the day of Jerusalem : how they 
said, Down with it, down with it, even to 
the ground. 

8 O daughter of Babylon, wasted with 
misery : yea, happy shsjl he be that re- 
wardeth tiiee, as thou hast served us.

PSALM CXXXVm. Cknymor tiii. 

I WILL give thanks unto thee, O Lord, 
with my whole heart : even before the 
gods will I sing praise unto thee. 

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, 
and praise thy Name, because of thy lov- 
ing-kindness and truth : for thou hast mag- 
nified thy Name, and thy Word, above ^1 
things. 

3 When I called upon thee, thou heard- 
est me : and enduedst my soul with much 
strength. 

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise 
thee, O Lord : for they have heard the 
words of thy mouth. 

5 Tea, they shall sing in the ways of 
the Lord : that great is the glory of the 
Lord. 

6 For though the Lord be high, yet 
hath he respect unto the lowly : as for the 
proud, he beholdeth them afar ofiF. 

7 Though I walk in the midst of trou- 
ble, yet shalt thou refresh me : thou shalt 
stretch forth thy hand upon the furiousness 
of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall 
save me. 

8 The Lord shall make good his loving- 
kindness toward me : yea, thy mercy, O 



THE PSALMS. Day 29.

the works of thine own hands. 

MORNING PKAYER. 
PSALM CXXXDC. Domine, probasH. 

OLORD, thou hast searched me out, 
and known me : thou knowest my 
down-sitting, and mine up-rising ; thou un- 
derstandest my thoughts long before. 

2 Thou art about my path, and about 
my bed : and spiest out all my ways. 

3 For lo, there is not a word in my 
tongue : but thou, O Lord, knowest it 
altogether. 

4 Thou hast fashioned me behind and 
before : and laid thine hand upon me. 

5 Such knowledge is too wonderful and 
excellent for me : I cannot attain unto it. 

6 Whither shall I go then from thy Spi- 
rit : or whither shall I go then from thy 
presence ? 

7 If I climb up into heaven, thou art 
there : if I go down to hell, thou art there 
also. 

8 If I take the wings of the morning : and 
remain in the uttermost parts of the sea ; 

9 Even there also shall thy hand lead 
me : and thy right hand shall hold me. 

10 If I say, Peradventure the darkness 
shall cover me : then shall my night be 
turned to day.

Day 29. THE PSALMS. 

11 Yea, the darkness is no darkness with 
thee, but the night is as clear as the day : 
the darkness and light to thee are both 
alike. 

12 For my reins are thine : thou hast 
covered me in my mother's womb. 

13 I will give thanks unto thee, for I 
am fearfiilly and wonderfully made : mar- 
vellous are thy works, and that my soul 
knoweth right well. 

14 My bones are not hid from thee : 
though I be made secretly, and fashioned 
beneath in the earth. 

15 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet 
being imperfect : and in thy book were all 
my members written ; 

16 Which day by day were fashioned : 
when as yet there was none of them. 

17 How dear are thy counsels unto me, 
O God : O how great is the sum of them ! 

18 If I tell them, they are more in num- 
ber than the sand : when I wake up I am 
present with thee. 

19 Wilt thou not slay the wicked, O God : 
depart from me, ye blood-thirsty men. 

20 For they speak unrighteously against 
thee : and thine enemies take thy Name 
in vain. 

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that 
hate thee : and am not I grieved with 
those that rise up against thee ? 



THE PSALMS. Day 29. 

22 Yea, I hate them right sore : even as 
though they were mine enemies. 

23 Try me, O God, and seek the ground 
of my heart : prove me, and examine my 
thoughts. 

24 liook well if there be any way of 
wickedness in me : and lead me in the way 
everlasting. 

PSALM CXL. Eripe me, Damim. 

DELIVER me, O Lord, from the evil 
man : and preserve me from the wick- 
ed man. 

2 Who imagine mischief in their hearts : 
and stir up stnfe all the day long. 

3 They have sharpened their tongues like 
a serpent : adder's poison is under their lips. 

4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of 
the ungodly : presei've me from the wicked 
men, who are purposed to overthrow my 
goings. 

5 The proud have laid a snare for me, 
and spread a net abroad with cords : yea, 
and set traps in my way. 

6 I said unto the Lord, Thou art my God : 
hear the voice of my prayers, O Lord. 

7 O Lord God, thou strength of my 
health : thou hast covered my head in the 
day of battle. 

8 Let not the ungodly have his desire, O 
Lord : let not his mischievous imagination 
prosper, lest they be too proud.

11 A man full of words shall not prosper

my hands be an evening sacrifice. 

3 Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth : 
and keep the door of my lips. 

4 O let not mine heart be inclined to 
any evil thing : let me not be occupied in 
ungodly works with the men that work 
wickedness, lest I eat of such things as 
please them.

him : and shewed him of my trouble. 

3 When my spirit was in heaviness thou 
knewest my path : in the way wherein I 
walked have they privily laid a snare for 
me. 

4 I looked also upon my right hand : and 
saw there was no man that would know me.

5 I had no place to flee unto : and no

6 I cried unto thee, O Lord, and ssiid : 
Thou art my hope, and my portion in the 
land of the living. 

7 Consider my complaint : for I am 
brought very low. 

8 O deliver me from my persecutors : 
for they are too strong for me. 

9 Bring my soul out of prison, that I 
may give thanks unto thy Name : which 
thing if thou wilt grant me, then shall the 
righteous resort unto my company. 

PSALM CXLIII. Damim, exariii. 

HEAR my prayer, O Lord, and con- 
sider my desire : hearken unto me 
for thy truth and righteousness' sake. 

2 And enter not into judgement with 
thy servant : for in thy sight shall no man 
livingbe justified. 

3 For the enemy hath persecuted my 
soul ; he hath smitten my life down to the 
ground : he hath laid me in the darkness, 
as the men that have been long dead. 

4 Therefore is my spirit vexed within 
me : and my heart within me is desolate. 

5 Yet do I remember the time past ; I 
muse upon all thy works : yea, I exercise 
myself in the works of thy hands.

soul gaspeth unto thee as a thirsty land.

and prepareth rain for the earth : and mak- 
eth the grass to grow upon the mountains, 
and herb for the use of men ; 

9 Who giveth fodder unto the cattle : and 
feedeth the young ravens that call upon him.

Or else this, out of the tixtli of the Acts of the Apostles. 
Acts vi. 2. 

THEN the twelve called the multitude of the disciples imto them, 
and said. It is not reason that we should leave the Word of 
God, and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you 
seven men of honest r^>ort, full of the holy Ghost and wisdom, whom 
we may ^point over this business. But we will give ourselvea coo- 
tinually to prayer, and to the ministry of the Word. And the saying 
pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of 
futh, and of the holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochonis, and Nica- 
nor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antloch ; 
whom they set before the Apostles ; and, when they had prayed, they 
laid their hands on them. And the Word of God increased, and the 
number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly, and a great 
company of the JE^ests were obedient to the futh.

1i Or fife thin thatfiMoofth, out of the tenth Chapter qf Saint John. 

St John X. 1. 

VERILY, verily I my unto you, He that entereth not by the door 
into the she^fold, but cumbeth i^ aanm other way, flie same 
is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the 
Siepfaerd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth, and the sheep 
hear lus voice; and he calleth his own sheep oy name, and leadeth 
them out And when he putteth forth his own sheep he goeth before 
them, and the sheep follow him; for they know his voice. And a 
stranger will they not follow, but will fiee from him ; for they know 
not the voice of strangers. This parable spake Jesus unto them, but 
they imderstood not what things they were which he roake unto 
them. Then said Jesns unto them agun. Verily, verily 1 say unto 
you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are 
thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not hear them. I am the 
door ; by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in 
and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not but for to stea^ and 
to kill, and to destroy : I am come that they might have life, and 
that they mi^t have it more abundantly. I am the good Shepherd :

Yon have heard, Brethren, as weU in your private examination, 
as in the exhortation which was now made to you, and in 
the holy Lessons taken out of the Gosp^ and the writings of the 
Apostles, of what dignity, and of how groat importance this Office is, 
whereunto ye are called. And now again we exhort yon, in the 
Name of our Lord Jeeus Christ, that tou have in remembrance, into 
how high a Dignity, and to how weigb^ an Office and Charge ye 
are calM : that is to say, to be Messengers, Watchmen, and Stew- 
ards of the Lord ; to teach, and to premomdi, to feed and provide fat 
the Lord's family; to seek for Christ's sheep that are dispersed 
abroad, and for his children who are in the midat of this naughty 
world, th^ they may be saved through Christ for ever. 

Have always therefore printed in your remembrance, how great 
a treasure is committed to your charge. For they are the siBeso 
of Christ, which he bought with his death, and for whom he shed 
his blood. The Church and Congregation whom you must aem, is 
his ^touse, and his Body. And if it sbaJl hwpen the same Qnirch, 
or any Member thereof, to take any hurt or nmdnince by reason <^ 
vour ne^igence, ye know the greatness of the fault, and also the 
horrible punishmrait that will ensue. Wherefore consider with youi^ 
selves the end of your Ministry towards the children of God, towards 
the ^uae and Body of Christ ; and see that you never cease your 
labour, your care and diligence, unto you have done aQ that lieui in 
vou, accordii^ to your bounden duty, to bring all such as are or shall 
be committed to your charge, unto that ^reement in the Auth and 
knowledge of God, and to that ripeneas and perfectnesB lA age in 
Quist, that there be no place left amcmg you, either for txttxc in

THIS is s true saying. If a man dedre the Office of a Bishop, 
he derareth a good work. A Bishop then most be blameless, 
the husband of one wife, vi^lant, sober, of good behaviour, given to 
bomitalitri npt to teach ; not given to wine, no striker, not greedy 
of filthy mere, but patient, not a brawler, not covetous ; one that 
ruleth well his own honse, having his chHclren in subjection with all 
n«vity ; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how 
shall he take care of the CSiurch c^ Ood P) Not a novice, lest being 
lifted up widi pride he Ul into the condemnation of the devil. More-

he fall info reproach, and the snare of the devil.

ALMIGHTY God, and most merciful Father, who of thine

death, and was ascended into heaven, poured down his gifts abun- 
dantly upon men, making some Apostles, some Prophets, some 
Evangelists, some Pastors and Doctors, to the edifying and making 
p^ect his Church ; Grant, we beseech thee, to this thy servant such 
grace, that he may evermore be ready to ^read abroad thy Gosirel, 
Sbe glad tidings of reconciliation witli thee ; and use the authority 
given him, not to destoiction, but to salvation ; not to hurt, but to

heed unto thyself, and to doctrine, and be diligent in doing them : 
for by BO doing thou shalt both save thyself and them that hear thee. 
Be to the fiock of Chrirt a shepherd, not a wolf; feed them, devour 
them not. Hold up the weak, heal the ^ck, bind up the broken,

also may be to such as believe a wholesome example, in word, in 
conversation, in love, in faith, in chastity, and in punty ; that, futh- 
fully fulfilling his course, at the latter day he may receive the crown

DEARLY beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, 
abstain from fleshly lusta, which war agamst the soul ; having 
your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas thcnr 
roeak gainst you as evil-doera, they may, by your good works which 
they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. Submit your^ 
selves to every orcunaoce of man for the Lord's sake ; whether it be 
to the King, as supreme ; or nnto govemours, as unto them that are 
smt by him for the punishment of evil-doers, and for the piuae of 
them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well-dome 
ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men : as free, and 
not uBing your liberty for a cloke of maUdousnefis, but as the ser- 
vants c^God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God.

requiring all Our loving Subjeelt to continue in the uniform Profesiion 
thereof, and prohibiting the least difference from the taid Articlet ; which 
to that End We command to be neni printed, and this Our Declaration 
to he pubUthed theremith. 

That We are Supreme Govemour of the Church <f England : And 
thai if any Difference arite about Ike external Policy, concerning the 
Injunctions, Canons, and other Constitutions whatsoever therdo belong-

Thai for Ike present, though Mome differencet have been ill raited, 
yet We take comfort in ihit, that all Clergymen tvitkin Our Realm have 
alwayi motl nillingly subecribed to the Articlet ettablithed ; miich m

I. OfFaiih m Me Hofy Trinity. 

THERE is but (me liviog and true OoA, everiaatiDg, without 
body, parts, or paaucMia ; of infinite ^wer, wisdom, and good- 
ness; the Maker, and Preaerver of all thiogs both viable and ii>- 
visible. And in unity of this Godhead there be three Persons, of 
one substance, power, and eternity; the Father, the Son, and the 
Holy Ghost 

n. Of the Word or Son of God, which toae made wry J/on. 

THE ScKi, which ia the Word of the Father, begotten from ever- 
lasting of the Father, the very and eternal Ood, and of one 
Bubstaoce with the Father, took Man''B nature in the womb of the 
blessed Vir^n, of her substance: so that two whole and perfect 
Natures, that is to say, the Godhead and Manhood, were joined 
t(^[ether in one Person, never to be divided, whereof is one Christ, 
veiY Ood, and very tAaa; who truly suffered, was crucified, dead 
and buried, to reconcile his Father to us, and to be a sacrifice, not 
only for original guilt, but also for all actual mns of men. 

III. Of the going down of Christ into Hell. 

\ S CSirist died for us, and was bivied, so also is it to be believed, 
XX. that he ynaat down into Hell. 

IV. Of the Resurrection of Chri^. 

CHRIST did truly rise again from death, and took ag^ bis 
body, with flesh, bones, and all things apperbuning to the pei^ 
fection of Man's nature ; wherewith he ascended into Heaven, and 
there sitteth, until he return to judge all Men at the last day. 

V. Of the Holy Ghost. 

THE Holy Ghost, proceeding from the Father and the Son, is 
of cme substance, majesty, and glory, with the Father and the 
StMi, very and eternal Ood. 

VI. Cff the Su^iaenc}/ of the My Scriptures Jbr sahation. 

nOLY Scripture contuneth all things necessary to salvation: 
BO that miatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved 
thraeby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed 
as an article of the Faith, or be thoudit requisite or necessary to 
salvation. In the name of the holy Scripture we do understand 
those canonical Books of the Old aind New Testament, of whose 
authority was never any doubt in the Church.

Four Prophets the greater, 
Tnielve Prophds the Us*. 



And the other BooIcb (as Hierome aaith) the Church doth read 
for example of life and iiutruction of maim^rB ; but yet doth it not 
apply them to establiah any doctrine ; such are these foUowing : 

Bantch the Prophet, 

The Song of the Three Children, 

The Story <f Susanna, 

Of Bel and the Dragon, 

The Prayer of Manasses, 

The First Book of Maccabees, 

The Second Boot of Maccabees. 



The Third Book of Etdras, 

The Fourth Book of Esdrat, 

The Book if Tobias, 

The Book ^ Judith, 

The rest of the Book of Esther, 

The Book o/" Wudem, 

Jesus the Son qfStrach, 



All the Books of the New Teatament, as they are commonly re- 
caved, we do receive, and account them Canonical. 

VII. Of the Old Testament. 

THE Old Teetatnent ia not contrary to the New: for both in 
the Old and New Testament everlasting life is oSbred to Man- 
kind by Christ, who is the only Mediator between God and Man, 
being both God and Man. Wherefore they are not to be heard, 



whicr 



feign that the old Fathers did look only for tranatory pro- 
Although the Law given from God l^ Moses, as touching 



Ceremonies and Rites, do not bind Christian men, nor the Cvni 
precepts thereof ought of necessity to be received in any common- 
wealth; yet notwitnstanding, no Christian man whatsoever is fr>ee 
from the obedience of the Commandments which are called Moral. 



VIII. Of the Three Creeds. 

THE Three Creeds, Nicene Creed, Mhanaaius's Creed, and that 
which is commonly called the Apoeilea* Oeed, ought Uiorouj^y 
to be received and believed : for they may be proved by most certain 
warrants of holy Scripture. 

IX. Of Original or Birth-sin. 

ORIGINAL Sin etandeth not in the following of Adam, (as the 
Pekyians do vainly talk;) but it ia the fault and comij^oa 
of the Nature of every man, that naturally is ingendered of the oSi 



t.. 



sic 



AUTICLES OP RELIGION. 

coring of Adam ; vhereby man is very far gone from original i^ht^ 
eousneSB, and is of his own nature inclined to evil, so that the flesh 
lusteth always contrary to the spirit ; and therefore in every person 
bom into this world, it deservetn God's wrath and damnation. And 
tliis infection of nature doth remain, vea in them that are regene- 
rated; whereby the lust of the flesh, called in Greek, ^potnjfM 
aapKAt, which some do expound the wisdom, some sensuality, some 
the afifection, some the deure, of the flesh, is not subject to the 
Law of God. And althouj^ there is no condemnation for them that 
believe and are bimtized, yet the Apostle doth confess, that oon- 
cujnscence and lust hath of itself the nature of sin. 

X. OfFree-Wm. 

THE conation of Man after tiie fall of Adam is such, that he 
cannot turn and prepare himself, by his own natural stret^th 
and good works, to fuUi, and calling upon God : Wherefore we have 
no power to do good works pleasant and acceptable to God, witliout 
tlw grace of Qod by Christ preventing us, that we may have a good 
will, and working with us, when we have that good wilL 

XL Of the Justificatitin of Man. 

WE are accounted righteous before God, only for the merit of 
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not for our 
own works or deservings : Wherefore, that we are justified by Faith 
only is a most wholesome Doctrine, and very full of comfort, as 
more Urgely is expteeeed in the Hon^ of Justification. 

XII. Of Good JTorfta. 

ALBEIT that Good Works, which are the fruits of Faith, and 
, follow after Justification, cannot put away our sins, and endure 
the severity of God's Judgement ; yet are they pleasing and accept- 
aUe to God in Christ, and do spring out necessarily of a true and 
lively Faith ; insomuch that by thero a lively Faith may be as evi- 
denuy known as a tree discerned by the fruit. 

XIII. (y Wiyrka before Just^catim. 

WORKS done before the grace of Christ, and the Inspiration 
of h^ Spirit, are not feasant to God, forasmuch as they 
spring not of faith in Jesus Christ, neither do tiiey make men meet 
to receive grace, or (as the School-authors say) deserve grace of 
congruity : yea rather, for that they are not done as God hath willed 
and commanded them to be done, we doubt not but they have the 
nature (^sin. 

XIV. Of Works of SupereroffoHon. 

VOLUNTARY Works besides, over and above, God's Com- 
mandments, which they call Works of Sapereroeation, cannot 
be taught without arrogancy and impiety: for by them men do 
declare, that they do not only render unto God as much as they 



m 



ARTICLBB OF RELIGION. 

are bound to do, but that they do more for hig sake, than of bounden 
duty b required : whereas Christ ealth plainly. When ye have done 
all that are commanded to you, say. We are unprofitable servants. 

XV. Of Christ alone without Sm. 

CHRIST in the truth of our nature was made like unto us in 
aD thmgs, sin only except, from which he was clearly void, both 
in his fiesh, and in his spint. He came to be the Lamb without 
spot, who, by sacrifice of himself once made, should take away the 
sins of the world, and sin, as Saint John saith, was not in him. But 
all we the rest, although baptized, and bom again in Christ, yet 
offend in many things; and if we eay we have no sin, we dec^ve 
ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 

XVL Of Sin after BapHsm. 
TOT every deadly sin willingly committed after Baptism is sin 
H a^nst the Holy Ghost, and unpardonable. Wherefore the 

Snt m repentance is not to be denied to such as fall into sin alia 
ptisnL After we have received the Holy Ghost, we may depart 
from grace given, and fall into sin, and by tne grace of God we may 
arise again, and amend our lives. And therefore they are to be ctHi- 
demned, which say, they can no more sin as long as they live here, 
or deny the place of for^veneas to such as truly repent. 

XVII. Of PredesHnaHon and Election. 

PREDESTINATION to Life is the everlasting purpose of God, 
whereby (before the foundations of the world were laid) be 
hath constantly decreed by his counsel secret to us, to deliver from 
curse and damnation those whom he hath chosen in Christ out of 
niankind, and to bring them by Christ to everlasting salvation, as 
vessels made to honour. Wherefore, they which be ^idued with so 
excellent a benefit of God be called according to (rod's puipoee hy 
his Spirit working in due season : they through Grace obey the call- 
ing : they be justified freely : they be made sons of God by adoption : 
they be made like the im^e of his only-b^^tten Son Jesua Christ : 
they walk religiously in good works, and at length, by God's mercy, 
they attiun to everhuting felicity. 

As the godly consideration of Predestination, and our Election in 
Christ, is lull of sweet, pleasant, and unspeakable comfort to godly 
persons, and such as fed in themselves the working of the Spirit oif 
Christ, mortifying the works of the flesh, and their earthly membeis, 
and drawing up their mind to high and heavenly things, as well 
because it doth greatly establish and confirm their faith of eternal 
Salvation to be enjoyed through Christ, as because it doth fervently 
kindle their love towards God: So, for curious and carnal peisDns, 
lacking the Spirit of Christ, to have continually before their eves 
the sentence of God's Predestination, is a most dangerous downrall, 
whereby the Devil doth thrust them either into desperation, <w into 
wretchleesueas of most unclean living, no less perilous than deq>&- 
ration. 



;;lc 



ARTICLES OP RELIGION. 

Fiudmniore, we must receive God's promises in Buch wise, as 
titey be generally set forth to us in holy Seizure : and, in our do- 
ings, that Will of God is to be followed, which we have expressly 
declared unto us in the Word of God. 

XVIII. Of obtaining eternal Salvation onbf by the Name of Christ. 

THEY also are to be had accuraed that presume to say, That 
every man shall be saved by the Law or Sect which he pro- 
fesseth, so that he be diligent to frame his life according to that 
Law, aod the light of Nature. For holy Scripture doth set out unto 
us (Hily the Name of Jesua Christ, wheraty men must be saved. 

XIX. Of the Church. 

THE viable Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, 
ID the which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sa- 
craments be duly ministered according to Christ's ordinance in all 
those things that of necessity are requisite to the same. 

As the Church of Jerusalem, Alej^andria, and Antioch, have 
erred; bo also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their 
living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith. 

XX. Of the AtUhonty of the Church. 

THE Church hath power to decree Rites or Ceremonies, and 
authority in Controversies of Futh: And yet it is not lawful 
for the Church to ordain any thing that is contraiy to God's Word 
written, neither may it so expound one place of Scripture, that it he 
repugnant to another. Wheiefore, although the Church be a witness 
and a keeper of holy Writ, yet, as it ougnt not to decree any tlung 
agunst the same, so besides the same ought it not to enforce any 
thu^; to be hdieved for neceeaity of Salvation. 

XXL Of the Authority of General CounciU. 

GENERAL Councils mav not be gathered together without the 
commandment and wiU of Princes. And when they be ga- 
thered together, (forasmuch as they be an assembly of men, whereof 
all be not governed vrith the Spirit and Word of God,) they may 
err, and some^mes have erred, even in things pertuning unto God. 
Wherefore things ordained by them as necessary to sfdvation have 
ndther strength nor authority, unless it may be declared that they 
be taken oat of holy Scripture. 

XXII. OfPurgatmy. 

THE Romish Doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, Wor- 
shij^ing and Adoration, as well of Images as of Reliqoes, and 
abo invocation of Saints, is a fond thing vainly invented, and 
grounded uptm no warranty of Scripture, but rather repugnant to 
flie W<wd of God. 

XXIIL Of Miniaterinff in the Congregation. 

IT » not lawful for any man to take upon him the office of pub- 
lick preaching, or ministering the Sacraments in the Congrega- 



ARTIO-ES OP BELIGION. 

tioD, before he be lawfully called, and sent to execute die same. Aod 
those we ought to judge lawfully called and sent, which be ^osen 
and called to this woric by men who have publick authority givaa 
unto them in the Congregation, to call and send Ministers into the 
' Lord's vineyard. 

XXIV. Of speaking in the Ctmgregaiicm in atich a tongue as the 
people tmderstandeth. 

IT is a thing plainly r^iuntaot to the Word of God, and the cus- 
tom of the Primitive Church, to have publick Prayer in the 
Church, or to minister the Sacramraits in a tongue not understanded 
(tf the people. 

XXy. Of the Sacraments. 

SACRAMENTS orduned of Christ be not only badges or tokens 
of Qtristian men's profession, but rather they be certun sure 
witnesses, and eSectual signs of grace, and God's good will towards 
us, by the which he doth work invisibly in us, and doth not only 
quicken, but also strengthen and confirm our Faith in him. 

There are two Saoranients ordained of Christ our Lord in the 
Cospel, that is to say. Baptism, and the Supper of the Lord. 

Those five commonly called Sacraments, that is to say. Confirm 
mation, Penance, Orders, MatrinuHiy, and extreme Unction, are not 
to be counted for Sacraments of the Gospel, being such as have 
grown partly of the corrupt following of the Apo^es, partly are 
states of life allowed in the Scriptures ; but yet have not like nature 
of Sacraments with Baptism, and the Lord's Supper, for that they 
have not any visible sign or ceremony ordmned.of bod. 

The Sacraments were not orduned of Christ to be gazed upon, 
or to be carried about, but that we should duly use them. Ana in 
such only as worthily receive the same they have a wholesome e&ct 
or operation: but they that receive them unworthily purdiase to 
then^ves damnation, as Stunt Paid saith. 

XXVL Of the Unioorifaoets of the Ministers, toAtcA hirulers not 
the effbct of the Sacrament. 

ALTHOUGH in the visible Church the evil be ever min{^ 
with Uie good, and sometimes the evil have (^ef authority in 
the Ministration of the Word and Sacraments, yet forasmuch as 
they do not the same in their own name, but in Christ's, and do 
muuster by his commisBdon and authority, we may use their Mmis- 
tiy, both in hearing the Word of God, and in the receiving of the 
Sacraments. Neither is the efibct of Christ's ordinance taken away 
by ^ir wickedness, nor the grace of Ooda gifts diminished from 
such as by faith and rightly do receive the Sacraments ministeied 
unto them ; which be effectual, because of Christ's institntion and 
promise, although they be ministered by evil men. 
NevertiielfisB, it appertaineth to the dis(»pUiie id the Church, that 



ARTICLES OP RELIGION, 
enquiry be made of evil Miniatera, and tiiat th^ be accosed hy those 
that have knowledse of their otTences ; and finally being found guilty, 
by just jui^ement De deposed. 

XXVIL OfBapUem. 

BAPTISM is not only a sign of profeaBicHi, and mark of differ- 
eatx, whraeby CSmstian men are discerned from othen that be 
not chrutened, but it is also a ngn of Regeneration or new Birth, 
whereby, as by an inetnmient, they that receive Bi^ism rightly are 
grafted into toe Ohorch ; the promiaes of the foivivenesB of ein, and 
of our adoption to be the eons of God by the Holy Ghost, are viobly 
Kgned and seated ; Faith is confirmed, and Grace increased 1^ virtue 
of prayer onto God. The B^tism of young Children is in any wise 
to be retained in the Cbnrch, as most agreeable witii the institution 
ofCauist 

XXVIII. Of the Lard's Supper. 

THE Siq>per of the Lord is not only a sign of the love that Chris- 
tians ought to have amo^ themselves one to another; but 
lather it is a Sacrament of our Redemption by Christ's death : inso- 
much that to such as rightly, worthily, and with futh, receive the 
same, the Bread which we break is a partaking of the Body of 
Christ ; and likewise the Gup of Blesnng is a partaking of the Blood 
of Christ. 

TransubstantJation (or the change of the snbetance of Bread and 
Wme) m the Supper of the Lord, cannot be proved by holy Writ ; 
but it is repugnant to the phun words of Scripture, overthroweth the 
nature of a Sacrament, and hath given occamcMi to many super- 
stitions. 

The Body of Christ is B^ven, taken, and eaten, in the Supper, only 
after an heavenly and spiritual manner. And the mean whereby the 
Body of Christ is received and eaten in the Supper ia Faith. 

liie Sacrament of the Lord's Sapper was not by Christ's ordinance 
reserved, carried abont, lifted up, or vroishipped. 

XXIX. Of the Wicked mMch eat not the Body of Christ in the 
ute offfie Lard's Supper. 

THE Wicked, and soch as be void of a lively faith, altbottgfa they 
do carnally and visibly presB with thar teeth (as Saint Juffua- 
tme saith) the Sacramoit of the Body and Kood of Christ, yet in 
no wise are tbey partaken of Qirist : but rathw, to thur condemno- 
ticn, do eat and drink die sign or Sacrament of so great a thing. 

XXX. qfboth kinds. 

^TTHE Cup of the Lord ia not to be doued to the I«y^>eq»le : for 
J- both the parts of the Lord's Sacrament, by Christ's ordinance 

and commandment, ought to be mintatered to all Christian mm 

aUke.

ARTICLES OF RELIGION. 

XXXI. Of the one (M>kUum of Chriat ^nuhed upon the Croat. 

TIE Offering of Christ once made is that perfect redemption, 
propitiation, and satisfaction, for all the rana of the whole worid, 
both original and actual ; and there ia none other satisfaction for too, 
but that alone. Wherefore the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it 
was oomnMHily said, that the Priest did ofier Christ for the quick 
and the dead, to have i^nuasioD of pwn or guilt, weze Masphe m ouB 
fables, and dangerons deceits. 

XXXII. Of the Marriage of Frieda. 

BISHOPS, Prieeta, and Deacons, are not conunanded by God's 
' Law, either to vow the estate of angle life, or to abstain from 
marriage; tfaeidbre it is lawful also for them, as for all other 
Christian men, to many at their own discretion, aa they shall judge 
the same to serre better to godliness. 

XXXIII. Of eaxommumctOe Peraona^ how they are to be wedded. 

THAT person which bv open denunciation of the Church is 
rwhtly cut off from the unity of the Church, and excommn- 
nicate^ ought to be taken (^ the whole multitude of the faidiful, as 
an Heathffli and Publican, until he be openly reconciled by penanoe, 
and received into the Church by a Jud^ tliat hath authority there- 
unto. 

XXXIV. Of the TradiOona of the Church. 

F' is not necessary that Traditions and Ceremonies be in aD places 
one, or utterly like ; for at all times they have been divers, and 
may be changed according to the diversities of countries, times, and 
men's manners, so that nothing be ord^ned f^nst God's Word, 
Whosoever through his private judgement, willingly and pi^oeely, 
doth openly break the traditions and ceremonies of the Church, 
which be not r^mgnant to the Word of God, and he ordained and 
^Htroved by common authmrty, ought to be rebuked openly, (that 
others may fear to do the like,) as he that offendeth against the 
common order of the Church, and hurteth the authority of the Ma- 
gistrate, and woimdeth the consciences of the weak brethren. 

Every particular or national Church hath authority to ordain, 
change, and abolish, ceremonies or rites of the Church m^laJned only 
by man's authority, bo that all things be done to editing. 

XXXV. 0/ Homilies. 

THE second Book of Homilies, the several titles whereof we have 
joined under this Article, doth contain a godly and wholesome 
Doctrine, and necessary for these times, as doth the former Book 
of Homilies, which were set forth in the time of Edward the Sixth ; 
and dierefore we judge them to be read in Churches by the Minis- 
ters, diligently and distinctly, that they may be tmderstanded of the 
people.

rriHE Book of Conaecration of Archbishops and Bishops, uid 
X Orderiiiff of Priests and Deacons, lately set faith in the time 
of Edward the Sixth, and confinned at the same time by authority 
of Parliament, doth contun all things necessary to such Gonsecn- 
tion and Ordering : neither hath it any thing, that of itself is super- 
stitious and nngodly. And therefore whosoever are consecrated or 
ordered according to the Rites of that Book, »nce the second year 
of the forenamed King Edioard unto this time, or hereafter shall be 
consecrated or ordered according to the same Rites; we decree all 
such to be rightly, orderly, and lawfully consecrated and ordered. 

XXXVII. Of the CivU Magistrates. 

THE Queen's Majesty hath the chief power in this Realm of 
England, and other her Dominions, unto whom the chief Go- 
Teniment of all Estates of this Realm, whether they be Ecclesiastical 
m Civil, in all causes doth appertain, and is not, nor ought to be, 
Bul^ect to any foreign Jurisdictioii. 

Where we attribute to the Queen's Majesty the chief gOTermnent, 
1^ which Titles we understand the minds of some slanderous folks 
to be offended ; we give not to our Princes the ministering either of 
God's Wt»d, or of uie Sacraments, the which thing the uijunctions 
abo lately set forth by EUzab^h our Queen do most plainly testify ; 
but that only pren^ative, which we see to have been given always 
to all godly Princes in holy Scriptures by God himself; that is, that 
they should rule all estates and degrees committed to their charge hy 
God, whether they be Eccledastit^ or Temporal, and restrain with 
the dvfl sword the stubborn and evil-doers. 

The Bishop of Rome hath no jurisdiction in this Reahn of 
Errand. 

The Laws of the Realm may punish Christian men with death, 
for heinous and grievous ofifences. 

It is lawful for Christiiui men, at the commandment of the Magis- 
trate, to wear wciqwns, and aeire in the wars.
