Authorized VersionTM NAVTM)
According to the Common Calendar
1 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands!
2 Sing forth the honor of His name; make His praise glorious.
3 Say unto God, "How fearsome art Thou in Thy works!
Through the greatness of Thy power shall Thine enemies submit
themselves unto Thee.
4 All the earth shall worship Thee and shall sing unto Thee;
they shall sing to Thy name."
5 Come and see the works of God;
He is fearsome in His doings toward the children of men.
6 He turned the sea into dry land, they went through the flood on
there did we rejoice in Him.
7 He ruleth by His power for ever, His eyes behold the nations;
let not the rebellious exalt themselves.
8 O bless our God, ye people;
and make the voice of His praise to be heard,
9 who holdeth our soul in life
and alloweth not our feet to be moved.
10 For Thou, O God, hast tried us;
Thou hast tried us as silver is tried.
11 Thou broughtest us into the net;
Thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads;
we went through fire and through water, but Thou broughtest us out
into a fruitful place.
13 I will go into Thy house with burnt offerings;
I will pay Thee my vows,14 which my lips have uttered and my mouth
hath spoken when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer unto Thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings
with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks and goats.
16 Come and hear, all ye that fear God,
and I will declare what He hath done for my soul.
17 I cried unto Him with my mouth,
and He was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I regard iniquity in my heart,
the Lord will not hear me.
19 But verily God hath heard me;
He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my
nor His mercy from me!
1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew
nigh, which is called the Passover. 2 And the chief
priests and scribes sought how they might kill Him, for
they feared the people. 3 Then entered Satan into Judas,
surnamed Iscariot, being one of the twelve. 4 And he went
his way and communed with the chief priests and captains
how he might betray Him unto them. 5 And they were glad,
and covenanted to give him money. 6 And he promised, and
sought opportunity to betray Him unto them in the absence
of the multitude.
7 Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread
when the Passover lamb must be killed. 8 And He sent
Peter and John, saying,
"Go and prepare us the
Passover, that we may eat."
9 And they said unto Him, "Where
wilt Thou have us prepare?" 10 And He said unto
"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. 11 And ye shall say unto the
master of the house, `The Master saith unto thee,
"Where is the guestchamber where I shall eat the
Passover with My disciples?"' 12 And he shall
show you a large upper room furnished. There make
13 And they went and found as He had said
unto them. And they made ready the Passover.
1 Now of the things of which we have spoken, this is the sum: We
have such a High Priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the
Majesty in the heavens, 2 a minister of the sanctuary and of the true
tabernacle, which the Lord pitched and not man. 3 For every high priest is
ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices; therefore it is of necessity that this
Man have something also to offer. 4 For if He were on earth, He should not be a
priest, seeing that there are priests who offer gifts according to the law, 5
and who serve unto the copy and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was
admonished by God when he was about to make the tabernacle. For,
"See," saith He, "that thou make all things according to the
pattern shown to thee on the mount." 6 But now hath He obtained a more
excellent ministry, by how much also He is the Mediator of a better covenant,
which was established upon better promises. 7 For if that first covenant had
been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8 For
finding fault with them, He saith,
"Behold, the days come," saith the Lord,
"when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the
house of Judah--
9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers
in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of
because they continued not in My covenant,
and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, saith the Lord:
I will put My laws into their minds
and write them in their hearts,
and I will be to them a God,
and they shall be to Me a people.
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbor
and every man his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,'
for all shall know Me,
from the least to the greatest.
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness,
and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more."
13 In that He saith "a new covenant," He hath made the
first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
5 Thus saith the LORD: "Cursed be the man that trusteth in man and
maketh flesh his arm,
and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good
but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and
7 "Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD,
and whose hope the LORD is.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,
and shall not see when heat cometh,
but her leaf shall be green;
and shall not be disquieted in the year of drought,
neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked;
who can know it?
10 "I, the LORD, search the heart;
I try the reins,
even to give every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit of his doings."
11 As the partridge sitteth on eggs and hatcheth them not,
so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst
of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.
12 A glorious high throne from the beginning is the place of our
13 O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake Thee shall be ashamed.
"And they that depart from Me shall be written in the earth,
because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters."
14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed;
save me, and I shall be saved; for Thou art my praise.
Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 31:28-29
Wine measurably drunk and in season bringeth gladness of the heart and
cheerfulness of the mind,
but wine drunken with excess maketh bitterness of the mind with brawling and
