Found: I for one believe in the consistency of scriptural doctrine. That consistency is not always readily available unless searched for and dug out. It may not be the answer that you are immediately looking for right now, but the best advice is to systematically search this answer out yourself. Systematically means to compare it up against the other doctrines that are much better supported such as grace redemption sanctification Holy Spirit reconciliation sovereignty election etc.. as a larger whole. Any doctrine that doesn't meld with the others is a doctrine that still needs further investigation and restraint.

Found: THE Supper of the Lord is not only a sign of the love that Christians ought to have among themselves, one to another, but rather it is a sacrament of our redemption by Christ's death: insomuch that to such as rightly, worthily, and with faith receive the same, the bread which we break is a partaking of the body of Christ, and likewise the cup of blessing is a partaking of the blood of Christ.


AnglicanArticlesOfReligion
Found: THE offering of Christ once made is the perfect redemption, propitiation, and satisfaction for all the sins of the whole world, both original and actual, and there is none other satisfaction for sin but that alone. Wherefore the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it was commonly said that the priests did offer Christ for the quick and the dead to have remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables and dangerous deceits.

And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of jubile: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with him.

And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight. And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the year of jubile, both he, and his children with him.

Found: Paragraph 3. This covenant is revealed in the gospel; first of all to Adam in the promise of salvation by the seed of the woman(5), and afterwards by farther steps, until the full discovery thereof was completed in the New Testament(6). and it is founded in that eternal covenant transaction that was between the Father and the Son about the redemption of the elect(7). and it is alone by the grace of this covenant that all the posterity of fallen Adam that ever were saved did obtain life and blessed immortality, man being now utterly incapable of acceptance with God upon those terms on which Adam stood in his state of innocency(8).

HelveticConfession2
Found: WE ARE JUSTIFIED ON ACCOUNT OF CHRIST. Now it is most certain that all of us are by nature sinners and godless, and before God's judgment-seat are convicted of godlessness and are guilty of death, but that, solely by the grace of Christ and not from any merit of ours or consideration for us, we are justified, that is, absolved from sin and death by God the Judge. For what is clearer than what Paul said: "Since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus" kjv@Romans:3:23 f.).


HelveticConfession2
Found: SACRAMENTAL EATING OF THE LORD. Besides the higher spiritual eating there is also a sacramental eating of the body of the Lord by which not only spiritually and internally the believer truly participates in the true body and blood of the Lord, but also, by coming to the Table of the Lord, outwardly receives the visible sacrament of the body and blood of the Lord. To be sure, when the believer believed, he first received the life-giving food, and still enjoys it. But therefore, when he now received the sacrament, he does not received nothing. For he progresses in continuing to communicate in the body and blood of the Lord, and so his faith is kindle and grows more and more, and is refreshed by spiritual food. For while we live, faith is continually increased. And he who outwardly receives the sacrament by true faith, not only receives the sign, but also, as we said, enjoys the thing itself. Moreover, he obeys the Lord's institution and commandment, and with a joyful mind gives thanks for his redemption and that of all mankind, and makes a faithful memorial to the Lord's death, and gives a witness before the Church, of whose body he is a member. Assurance is also given to those who receive the sacrament that the body of the Lord was given and his blood shed, not only for men in general, but particularly for every faithful communicant, to whom it is food and drink unto eternal life.


ShortConfessionOfFaithJohnSmyth
Found: (4) That the law of life was originally placed by God in the keeping of the law; then, by reason of the weakness of the flesh, was, by the good pleasure of God, through the redemption of Christ, changed into justification of faith; on which account, no one ought justly blame God, but rather, with his inmost heart, to revere, adore, and praise his mercy, that God should have rendered that possible to man, by his grace, which before, since man had fallen, was impossible by nature.


ShortConfessionOfFaithJohnSmyth
Found: (8) That the grace of God, through the finished redemption of Christ, was to be prepared and offered to all without distinction, and that not feignedly but in good faith, partly by things made, which declare the invisible things of God, and partly by the preaching of the Gospel.


ShortConfessionOfFaithJohnSmyth
Found: (9) That men, of the grace of God through the redemption of Christ, are able (the Holy Spirit, by grace, being before unto them grace prevement) to repent, to believe, to turn to God, and to attain to eternal life; so on the other hand, they are able themselves to resist the Holy Spirit, to depart from God, and to perish for ever.


SmalcaldArticles
Found: 3 Likewise: All have sinned and are justified without merit freely, and without their own works or merits by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, in His blood, kjv@Romans:3:23f


SmalcaldArticles
Found: 2 If they will not serve this purpose, it is better that they be abandoned or razed, rather than continued and, with their blasphemous services invented by men, regarded as something better than the ordinary Christian life and the offices and callings ordained by God. For all this also is contrary to the first chief article concerning the redemption made through Jesus Christ. Add to this that (like all other human inventions) these have neither been commanded; they are needless and useless, and, besides, afford occasion for dangerous and vain labor dangerous annoyances and fruitless worship, such services as the prophets call Aven, i.e., pain and labor.


SmalcaldArticles
Found: 3 Hence it follows that all things which the Pope, from a power so false, mischievous, blasphemous, and arrogant, has done and undertaken. have been and still are purely diabolical affairs and transactions (with the exception of such things as pertain to the secular government, where God often permits much good to be effected for a people, even through a tyrant and faithless scoundrel) for the ruin of the entire holy catholic or Christian Church (so far as it is in his power) and for the destruction of the first and chief article concerning the redemption made through Jesus Christ.


SmalcaldArticles
Found: 7 But whenever the Law alone, without the Gospel being added exercises this its office there is nothing else than death and hell, and man must despair, like Saul and Judas; as St. Paul, kjv@Romans:7:10, says: Through sin the Law killeth. 8 On the other hand, the Gospel brings consolation and remission not only in one way, but through the word and Sacraments, and the like, as we shall hear afterward in order that thus there is with the Lord plenteous redemption, as kjv@Psalms:130:7 says against the dreadful captivity of sin.


SmalcaldArticles
Found: 12 And of such repentance they fix three parts, contrition, confession, and satisfaction, with this magnificent consolation and promise added: If man truly repent, feel remorse, confess, render satisfaction, he thereby would have merited forgiveness, and paid for his sins before God atoned for his sins and obtained a plenary redemption. Thus in repentance they instructed men to repose confidence in their own works. 13 Hence the expression originated, which was employed in the pulpit when public absolution was announced to the people: Prolong O God, my life, until I shall make satisfaction for my sins and amend my life.


SmalcaldArticles
Found: 4 Of the baptism of children we hold that children ought to be baptized. For they belong to the promised redemption made through Christ, and the Church should administer it Baptism and the announcement of that promise to them.


CanonsOfDort
Found: Election is the unchangeable purpose of God, whereby, before the foundation of the world, He has out of mere grace, according to the sovereign good pleasure of His own will, chosen from the whole human race, which had fallen through their own fault from their primitive state of rectitude into sin and destruction, a certain number of persons to redemption in Christ, whom He from eternity appointed the Mediator and Head of the elect and the foundation of salvation. This elect number, though by nature neither better nor more deserving than others, but with them involved in one common misery, God has decreed to give to Christ to be saved by Him, and effectually to call and draw them to His communion by His Word and Spirit; to bestow upon them true faith, justification, and sanctification; and having powerfully preserved them in the fellowship of His Son, finally to glorify them for the demonstration of His mercy, and for the praise of the riches of His glorious grace; as it is written:Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blemish before him in love:having foreordained us unto adoption as sons through Jesus Christ unto himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, which he freely bestowed on us in the Beloved (kjv@Ephesians:1:4, 5, 6). And elsewhere:Whom he foreordained, them he also called:and whom he called, them he also justified:and whom he justified, them he also glorified (kjv@Romans:8:30).


CanonsOfDort
Found: Who teach:That God the Father has ordained His Son to the death of the cross without a certain and definite decree to save any, so that the necessity, profitableness, and worth of what Christ merited by His death might have existed, and might remain in all its parts complete, perfect, and intact, even if the merited redemption had never in fact been applied to any person.


CanonsOfDort
Found: For these contradict the Scriptures:Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; whom God set forth to be a propitiation, through faith, in his blood (kjv@Romans:3:24, 25). And these proclaim, as did the wicked Socinus, a new and strange justification of man before God, against the consensus of the whole Church.

Found: 25. Prosper of Aquitaine (390–455): “And just as there are no crimes so detestable that they can prevent the gift of grace, so too there can be no works so eminent that they are owed in condign deserved judgment that which is given freely. Would it not be a debasement of redemption in Christ’s blood, and would not God’s mercy be made secondary to human works, if justification, which is through grace, were owed in view of preceding merits, so that it were not the gift of a Donor, but the wages of a laborer?”

SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, According to the Catholic Faith we must firmly believe that, Christ alone excepted, all men descended from Adam contract original sin from him; else all would not need redemption [*Cf. Translator's note inserted before TP, Q27] which is through Christ; and this is erroneous. The reason for this may be gathered from what has been stated 1822(A1), viz. that original sin, in virtue of the sin of our first parent, is transmitted to his posterity, just as, from the soul's will, actual sin is transmitted to the members of the body, through their being moved by the will. Now it is evident that actual sin can be transmitted to all such members as have an inborn aptitude to be moved by the will. Therefore original sin is transmitted to all those who are moved by Adam by the movement of generation.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 2: The mystery of the redemption of the human race was fulfilled in Christ's Passion: hence Our Lord said then: "It is consummated" (Jn. 19:30). Consequently the prescriptions of the Law must have ceased then altogether through their reality being fulfilled. As a sign of this, we read that at the Passion of Christ "the veil of the temple was rent" (Mat. 27:51). Hence, before Christ's Passion, while Christ was preaching and working miracles, the Law and the Gospel were concurrent, since the mystery of Christ had already begun, but was not as yet consummated. And for this reason Our Lord, before His Passion, commanded the leper to observe the legal ceremonies.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, Three reasons may be assigned why it was not fitting for the New Law to be given from the beginning of the world. The first is because the New Law, as stated above 2139(A1), consists chiefly in the grace of the Holy Ghost: which it behoved not to be given abundantly until sin, which is an obstacle to grace, had been cast out of man through the accomplishment of his redemption by Christ: wherefore it is written (Jn. 7:39): "As yet the Spirit was not given, because Jesus was not yet glorified." This reason the Apostle states clearly (Rom. kjv@8:2, seqq.) where, after speaking of "the Law of the Spirit of life," he adds: "God sending His own Son, in the likeness of sinful flesh, of sin* hath condemned sin in the flesh, that the justification of the Law might be fulfilled in us." [*St. Thomas, quoting perhaps from memory, omits the "et" (and), after "sinful flesh." The text quoted should read thus: "in the likeness of sinful flesh, and a sin offering ({peri hamartias}), hath," etc.]


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: Eggs and milk foods are forbidden to those who fast, for as much as they originate from animals that provide us with flesh: wherefore the prohibition of flesh meat takes precedence of the prohibition of eggs and milk foods. Again the Lenten fast is the most solemn of all, both because it is kept in imitation of Christ, and because it disposes us to celebrate devoutly the mysteries of our redemption. For this reason the eating of flesh meat is forbidden in every fast, while the Lenten fast lays a general prohibition even on eggs and milk foods. As to the use of the latter things in other fasts the custom varies among different people, and each person is bound to conform to that custom which is in vogue with those among whom he is dwelling. Hence Jerome says [*Augustine, De Lib. Arb. iii, 18; cf. De Nat. et Grat. lxvii]: "Let each province keep to its own practice, and look upon the commands of the elders as though they were the laws of the apostles."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 4: Further, according to Augustine (De Vera Relig. 16), "Christ's whole life on earth was a lesson in moral conduct through the human nature which He assumed." Now He especially proposed His humility for our example, saying (Mat. 11:29): "Learn of Me, because I am meek and humble of heart." Moreover, Gregory says (Pastor. iii, 1) that the "lesson proposed to us in the mystery of our redemption is the humility of God." Therefore humility would seem to be the greatest of virtues.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 2: Flesh and blood are not taken here for the substance of flesh and blood, but for the corruption of flesh, which was not in Christ as far as it was sinful; but as far as it was a punishment; thus, for a time, it was in Christ, that He might carry through the work of our redemption.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, As Augustine says (De Haeres. 69,55), it was first of all the opinion of Arius and then of Apollinaris that the Son of God assumed only flesh, without a soul, holding that the Word took the place of a soul to the body. And consequently it followed that there were not two natures in Christ, but only one; for from a soul and body one human nature is constituted. But this opinion cannot hold, for three reasons. First, because it is counter to the authority of Scripture, in which our Lord makes mention of His soul, Mat. 26:38: "My soul is sorrowful even unto death"; and Jn. 10:18: "I have power to lay down My soul animam meam: Douay: 'My life'." But to this Apollinaris replied that in these words soul is taken metaphorically, in which way mention is made in the Old Testament of the soul of God (Is. 1:14): "My soul hateth your new moons and your solemnities." But, as Augustine says (Qq. lxxxiii, qu. 80), the Evangelists relate how Jesus wondered, was angered, sad, and hungry. Now these show that He had a true soul, just as that He ate, slept and was weary shows that He had a true human body: otherwise, if these things are a metaphor, because the like are said of God in the Old Testament, the trustworthiness of the Gospel story is undermined. For it is one thing that things were foretold in a figure, and another that historical events were related in very truth by the Evangelists. Secondly, this error lessens the utility of the Incarnation, which is man's liberation. For Augustine [*Vigilius Tapsensis] argues thus (Contra Felician. xiii): "If the Son of God in taking flesh passed over the soul, either He knew its sinlessness, and trusted it did not need a remedy; or He considered it unsuitable to Him, and did not bestow on it the boon of redemption; or He reckoned it altogether incurable, and was unable to heal it; or He cast it off as worthless and seemingly unfit for any use. Now two of these reasons imply a blasphemy against God. For how shall we call Him omnipotent, if He is unable to heal what is beyond hope? Or God of all, if He has not made our soul. And as regards the other two reasons, in one the cause of the soul is ignored, and in the other no place is given to merit. Is He to be considered to understand the cause of the soul, Who seeks to separate it from the sin of wilful transgression, enabled as it is to receive the law by the endowment of the habit of reason? Or how can His generosity be known to any one who says it was despised on account of its ignoble sinfulness? If you look at its origin, the substance of the soul is more precious than the body: but if at the sin of transgression, on account of its intelligence it is worse than the body. Now I know and declare that Christ is perfect wisdom, nor have I any doubt that He is most loving; and because of the first of these He did not despise what was better and more capable of prudence; and because of the second He protected what was most wounded." Thirdly, this position is against the truth of the Incarnation. For flesh and the other parts of man receive their species through the soul. Hence, if the soul is absent, there are no bones nor flesh, except equivocally, as is plain from the Philosopher (De Anima ii, 9; Metaph. vii, 34).


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 1: The flesh of the Virgin was conceived in original sin, [*See introductory note to Q27] and therefore contracted these defects. But from the Virgin, Christ's flesh assumed the nature without sin, and He might likewise have assumed the nature without its penalties. But He wished to bear its penalties in order to carry out the work of our redemption, as stated above 4020(A1). Therefore He had these defects---not that He contracted them, but that He assumed them.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 4: There is no reason why a thing may not of itself be contrary to the will, and yet be willed by reason of the end, to which it is ordained, as bitter medicine is not of itself desired, but only as it is ordained to health. And thus Christ's death and passion were of themselves involuntary, and caused sorrow, although they were voluntary as ordained to the end, which is the redemption of the human race.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, Two things are required for the perfect cleansing from sins, corresponding to the two things comprised in sin---namely, the stain of sin and the debt of punishment. The stain of sin is, indeed, blotted out by grace, by which the sinner's heart is turned to God: whereas the debt of punishment is entirely removed by the satisfaction that man offers to God. Now the priesthood of Christ produces both these effects. For by its virtue grace is given to us, by which our hearts are turned to God, according to Rom. 3:24,25: "Being justified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Whom God hath proposed to be a propitiation, through faith in His blood." Moreover, He satisfied for us fully, inasmuch as "He hath borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows" (Is. 53:4). Wherefore it is clear that the priesthood of Christ has full power to expiate sins.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 1: It would seem that the priesthood of Christ does not endure for ever. For as stated above (A4, ad 1,3) those alone need the effect of the priesthood who have the weakness of sin, which can be expiated by the priest's sacrifice. But this will not be for ever. For in the Saints there will be no weakness, according to Is. 60:21: "Thy people shall be all just": while no expiation will be possible for the weakness of sin, since "there is no redemption in hell" (Office of the Dead, Resp. vii). Therefore the priesthood of Christ endures not for ever.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, Properly speaking, the office of a mediator is to join together and unite those between whom he mediates: for extremes are united in the mean medio. Now to unite men to God perfectively belongs to Christ, through Whom men are reconciled to God, according to 2 Cor. kjv@5:19: "God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself." And, consequently, Christ alone is the perfect Mediator of God and men, inasmuch as, by His death, He reconciled the human race to God. Hence the Apostle, after saying, "Mediator of God and man, the man Christ Jesus," added: "Who gave Himself a redemption for all."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: The question is answered thus: St. Thomas as a Doctor of the Church and in matters which were not then "de fide," is a witness to the expression of the faith of his time. Hence his line of argument coincides with, because it follows, that of St. Bernard, Peter Lombard, Alexander of Hales, Albert the Great, St. Bonaventure. It was not likely that St. Thomas would differ from the great masters of his time, who failed to understand that the grace of redemption might at the same time be one of preservation and prevention. Nor is it likely that St. Thomas had any reliable information about the movement* in progress at that time towards a belief in the Immaculate Conception. [*Principally in England, where, owing to the influence of St. Anselm (1109), the doctrine was maintained by Eadmer (1137). Nicolas of St. Albans (1175), Osbert of Clare (1170), Robert Grosseteste, Bishop of Lincoln (1253), William of Ware (1300), who was the master of Duns Scotus (1308)]. No doubt he knew something of it, but the names of its promoters would have weighed little with him as against those of Bernard, Albert, Peter, Alexander, and Bonaventure. And it must not be forgotten that among those who upheld the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, not a few ascribed the privilege as being absolute and not one of preservation and Redemption. Hence it is that St. Thomas insists on two things: (1) that the Mother of God was redeemed, and (2) that the grace of her sanctification was a grace of preservation. And, be it remarked in conclusion, these two points, so much insisted on by St. Thomas, are at the very basis of the Catholic doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Secondly, because, since the rational creature alone can be the subject of sin; before the infusion of the rational soul, the offspring conceived is not liable to sin. And thus, in whatever manner the Blessed Virgin would have been sanctified before animation, she could never have incurred the stain of original sin: and thus she would not have needed redemption and salvation which is by Christ, of whom it is written (Mat. 1:21): "He shall save His people from their sins." But this is unfitting, through implying that Christ is not the "Saviour of all men," as He is called (1 Tim. 4:10). It remains, therefore, that the Blessed Virgin was sanctified after animation.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, It was unfitting that Christ's birth should be made known to all men without distinction. First, because this would have been a hindrance to the redemption of man, which was accomplished by means of the Cross; for, as it is written (1 Cor. 2:8): "If they had known it, they would never have crucified the Lord of glory."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, Salvation, which was to be accomplished by Christ, concerns all sorts and conditions of men: because, as it is written (Col. 3:11), in Christ "there is neither male nor female, [*These words are in reality from Gal. 3:28] neither Gentile nor Jew . . . bond nor free," and so forth. And in order that this might be foreshadowed in Christ's birth, He was made known to men of all conditions. Because, as Augustine says in a sermon on the Epiphany (32 de Temp.), "the shepherds were Israelites, the Magi were Gentiles. The former were nigh to Him, the latter far from Him. Both hastened to Him together as to the cornerstone." There was also another point of contrast: for the Magi were wise and powerful; the shepherds simple and lowly. He was also made known to the righteous as Simeon and Anna; and to sinners, as the Magi. He was made known both to men, and to women---namely, to Anna---so as to show no condition of men to be excluded from Christ's redemption.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, The clarity which Christ assumed in His transfiguration was the clarity of glory as to its essence, but not as to its mode of being. For the clarity of the glorified body is derived from that of the soul, as Augustine says (Ep. ad Diosc. cxviii). And in like manner the clarity of Christ's body in His transfiguration was derived from His God. head, as Damascene says (Orat. de Transfig.) and from the glory of His soul. That the glory of His soul did not overflow into His body from the first moment of Christ's conception was due to a certain Divine dispensation, that, as stated above (4224Q14, A1, ad 2), He might fulfil the mysteries of our redemption in a passible body. This did not, however, deprive Christ of His power of outpouring the glory of His soul into His body. And this He did, as to clarity, in His transfiguration, but otherwise than in a glorified body. For the clarity of the soul overflows into a glorified body, by way of a permanent quality affecting the body. Hence bodily refulgence is not miraculous in a glorified body. But in Christ's transfiguration clarity overflowed from His Godhead and from His soul into His body, not as an immanent quality affecting His very body, but rather after the manner of a transient passion, as when the air is lit up by the sun. Consequently the refulgence, which appeared in Christ's body then, was miraculous: just as was the fact of His walking on the waves of the sea. Hence Dionysius says (Ep. ad Cai. iv): "Christ excelled man in doing that which is proper to man: this is shown in His supernatural conception of a virgin and in the unstable waters bearing the weight of material and earthly feet."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: That man should be delivered by Christ's Passion was in keeping with both His mercy and His justice. With His justice, because by His Passion Christ made satisfaction for the sin of the human race; and so man was set free by Christ's justice: and with His mercy, for since man of himself could not satisfy for the sin of all human nature, as was said above (4227Q1, A2), God gave him His Son to satisfy for him, according to Rom. 3:24,25: "Being justified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God hath proposed to be a propitiation, through faith in His blood." And this came of more copious mercy than if He had forgiven sins without satisfaction. Hence it is said (Eph. 2:4): "God, who is rich in mercy, for His exceeding charity wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together in Christ."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 1: It would seem that there was no other possible way of human deliverance besides Christ's Passion. For our Lord says (Jn. 12:24): "Amen, amen I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground dieth, itself remaineth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit." Upon this St. Augustine (Tract. li) observes that "Christ called Himself the seed." Consequently, unless He suffered death, He would not otherwise have produced the fruit of our redemption.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: (4) Whether it was by way of redemption?


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Whether Christ's Passion brought about our salvation by way of redemption?


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 1: It would seem that Christ's Passion did not effect our salvation by way of redemption. For no one purchases or redeems what never ceased to belong to him. But men never ceased to belong to God according to Ps. 23:1: "The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof: the world and all they that dwell therein." Therefore it seems that Christ did not redeem us by His Passion.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 2: Further, as Augustine says (De Trin. xiii): "The devil had to be overthrown by Christ's justice." But justice requires that the man who has treacherously seized another's property shall be deprived of it, because deceit and cunning should not benefit anyone, as even human laws declare. Consequently, since the devil by treachery deceived and subjugated to himself man, who is God's creature, it seems that man ought not to be rescued from his power by way of redemption.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 3: Further, whoever buys or redeems an object pays the price to the holder. But it was not to the devil, who held us in bondage, that Christ paid His blood as the price of our redemption. Therefore Christ did not redeem us by His Passion.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Since, then, Christ's Passion was a sufficient and a superabundant atonement for the sin and the debt of the human race, it was as a price at the cost of which we were freed from both obligations. For the atonement by which one satisfies for self or another is called the price, by which he ransoms himself or someone else from sin and its penalty, according to Dan. kjv@4:24: "Redeem thou thy sins with alms." Now Christ made satisfaction, not by giving money or anything of the sort, but by bestowing what was of greatest price---Himself---for us. And therefore Christ's Passion is called our redemption.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 2: Man by sinning became the bondsman both of God and of the devil. Through guilt he had offended God, and put himself under the devil by consenting to him; consequently he did not become God's servant on account of his guilt, but rather, by withdrawing from God's service, he, by God's just permission, fell under the devil's servitude on account of the offense perpetrated. But as to the penalty, man was chiefly bound to God as his sovereign judge, and to the devil as his torturer, according to Mat. kjv@5:25: "Lest perhaps the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer"---that is, "to the relentless avenging angel," as Chrysostom says (Hom. xi). Consequently, although, after deceiving man, the devil, so far as in him lay, held him unjustly in bondage as to both sin and penalty, still it was just that man should suffer it. God so permitting it as to the sin and ordaining it as to the penalty. And therefore justice required man's redemption with regard to God, but not with regard to the devil.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: Because, with regard to God, redemption was necessary for man's deliverance, but not with regard to the devil, the price had to be paid not to the devil, but to God. And therefore Christ is said to have paid the price of our redemption---His own precious blood---not to the devil, but to God.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 2: Further, he is said to redeem who pays the price of redemption. But God the Father gave His Son in redemption for our sins, as is written (Ps. 110:9): "The Lord hath sent redemption to His people," upon which the gloss adds, "that is, Christ, who gives redemption to captives." Therefore not only Christ, but the Father also, redeemed us.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, For someone to redeem, two things are required---namely, the act of paying and the price paid. For if in redeeming something a man pays a price which is not his own, but another's, he is not said to be the chief redeemer, but rather the other is, whose price it is. Now Christ's blood or His bodily life, which "is in the blood," is the price of our redemption (Lev. 17:11, 14), and that life He paid. Hence both of these belong immediately to Christ as man; but to the Trinity as to the first and remote cause, to whom Christ's life belonged as to its first author, and from whom Christ received the inspiration of suffering for us. Consequently it is proper to Christ as man to be the Redeemer immediately; although the redemption may be ascribed to the whole Trinity as its first cause.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 1: A gloss explains the text thus: "Thou, O Lord God of Truth, hast redeemed me in Christ, crying out, 'Lord, into Thy hands I commend my spirit.'" And so redemption belongs immediately to the Man-Christ, but principally to God.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 2: The Man-Christ paid the price of our redemption immediately, but at the command of the Father as the original author.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: The sufferings of the saints are beneficial to the Church, as by way, not of redemption, but of example and exhortation, according to 2 Cor. kjv@1:6: "Whether we be in tribulation, it is for your exhortation and salvation."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: Christ's Passion, according as it is compared with His Godhead, operates in an efficient manner: but in so far as it is compared with the will of Christ's soul it acts in a meritorious manner: considered as being within Christ's very flesh, it acts by way of satisfaction, inasmuch as we are liberated by it from the debt of punishment; while inasmuch as we are freed from the servitude of guilt, it acts by way of redemption: but in so far as we are reconciled with God it acts by way of sacrifice, as shall be shown farther on (4259Q49).


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, Christ's Passion is the proper cause of the forgiveness of sins in three ways. First of all, by way of exciting our charity, because, as the Apostle says (Rom. 5:8): "God commendeth His charity towards us: because when as yet we were sinners, according to the time, Christ died for us." But it is by charity that we procure pardon of our sins, according to Lk. kjv@7:47: "Many sins are forgiven her because she hath loved much." Secondly, Christ's Passion causes forgiveness of sins by way of redemption. For since He is our head, then, by the Passion which He endured from love and obedience, He delivered us as His members from our sins, as by the price of His Passion: in the same way as if a man by the good industry of his hands were to redeem himself from a sin committed with his feet. For, just as the natural body is one though made up of diverse members, so the whole Church, Christ's mystic body, is reckoned as one person with its head, which is Christ. Thirdly, by way of efficiency, inasmuch as Christ's flesh, wherein He endured the Passion, is the instrument of the Godhead, so that His sufferings and actions operate with Divine power for expelling sin.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 1: It would seem that men were not freed from the punishment of sin by Christ's Passion. For the chief punishment of sin is eternal damnation. But those damned in hell for their sins were not set free by Christ's Passion, because "in hell there is no redemption" [*Office of the Dead, Resp. vii]. It seems, therefore, that Christ's Passion did not deliver men from the punishment of sin.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Now by Christ's Passion we have been delivered not only from the common sin of the whole human race, both as to its guilt and as to the debt of punishment, for which He paid the penalty on our behalf; but, furthermore, from the personal sins of individuals, who share in His Passion by faith and charity and the sacraments of faith. Consequently, then the gate of heaven's kingdom is thrown open to us through Christ's Passion. This is precisely what the Apostle says (Heb. 9:11,12): "Christ being come a high-priest of the good things to come . . . by His own blood entered once into the Holies, having obtained eternal redemption." And this is foreshadowed (Num. 35:25, 28), where it is said that the slayer* "shall abide there"---that is to say, in the city of refuge---"until the death of the high-priest, that is anointed with the holy oil: but after he is dead, then shall he return home." [*The Septuagint has 'slayer', the Vulgate, 'innocent'---i.e. the man who has slain 'without hatred and enmity'.]


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 2: The holy Fathers while yet living were delivered from original as well as actual sin through faith in Christ; also from the penalty of actual sins, but not from the penalty of original sin, whereby they were excluded from glory, since the price of man's redemption was not yet paid: just as the faithful are now delivered by baptism from the penalty of actual sins, and from the penalty of original sin as to exclusion from glory, yet still remain bound by the penalty of original sin as to the necessity of dying in the body because they are renewed in the spirit, but not yet in the flesh, according to Rom. kjv@8:10: "The body indeed is dead, because of sin; but the spirit liveth, because of justification."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, Christ's was a glorified body in His Resurrection, and this is evident from three reasons. First of all, because His Resurrection was the exemplar and the cause of ours, as is stated in 1 Cor. 15:43. But in the resurrection the saints will have glorified bodies, as is written in the same place: "It is sown in dishonor, it shall rise in glory." Hence, since the cause is mightier than the effect, and the exemplar than the exemplate; much more glorious, then, was the body of Christ in His Resurrection. Secondly, because He merited the glory of His Resurrection by the lowliness of His Passion. Hence He said (Jn. 12:27): "Now is My soul troubled," which refers to the Passion; and later He adds: "Father, glorify Thy name," whereby He asks for the glory of the Resurrection. Thirdly, because as stated above (4302Q34, A4), Christ's soul was glorified from the instant of His conception by perfect fruition of the Godhead. But, as stated above (4303Q14, A1, ad 2), it was owing to the Divine economy that the glory did not pass from His soul to His body, in order that by the Passion He might accomplish the mystery of our redemption. Consequently, when this mystery of Christ's Passion and death was finished, straightway the soul communicated its glory to the risen body in the Resurrection; and so that body was made glorious.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: In like manner Christ's death is sufficiently represented in the one immersion. And the three days of His burial were not necessary for our salvation, because even if He had been buried or dead for one day, this would have been enough to consummate our redemption: yet those three days were ordained unto the manifestation of the reality of His death, as stated above (4423Q53, A2). It is therefore clear that neither on the part of the Trinity, nor on the part of Christ's Passion, is the trine immersion essential to the sacrament.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: But to others who do not receive it, it is beneficial by way of sacrifice, inasmuch as it is offered for their salvation. Hence it is said in the Canon of the Mass: "Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy servants, men and women . . . for whom we offer, or who offer up to Thee, this sacrifice of praise for themselves and for all their own, for the redemption of their souls, for the hope of their safety and salvation." And our Lord expressed both ways, saying (Mat. 26:28, with Lk. 22:20): "Which for you," i.e. who receive it, "and for many," i.e. others, "shall be shed unto remission of sins."


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 1: The deacon, as being nigh to the priestly order, has a certain share in the latter's duties, so that he may dispense the blood; but not the body, except in case of necessity, at the bidding of a bishop or of a priest. First of all, because Christ's blood is contained in a vessel, hence there is no need for it to be touched by the dispenser, as Christ's body is touched. Secondly, because the blood denotes the redemption derived by the people from Christ; hence it is that water is mixed with the blood, which water denotes the people. And because deacons are between priest and people, the dispensing of the blood is in the competency of deacons, rather than the dispensing of the body.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: I answer that, The celebration of this sacrament is called a sacrifice for two reasons. First, because, as Augustine says (Ad Simplician. ii), "the images of things are called by the names of the things whereof they are the images; as when we look upon a picture or a fresco, we say, 'This is Cicero and that is Sallust.'" But, as was said above (4695Q79, A1), the celebration of this sacrament is an image representing Christ's Passion, which is His true sacrifice. Accordingly the celebration of this sacrament is called Christ's sacrifice. Hence it is that Ambrose, in commenting on Heb. 10:1, says: "In Christ was offered up a sacrifice capable of giving eternal salvation; what then do we do? Do we not offer it up every day in memory of His death?" Secondly it is called a sacrifice, in respect of the effect of His Passion: because, to wit, by this sacrament, we are made partakers of the fruit of our Lord's Passion. Hence in one of the Sunday Secrets (Ninth Sunday after Pentecost) we say: "Whenever the commemoration of this sacrifice is celebrated, the work of our redemption is enacted." Consequently, according to the first reason, it is true to say that Christ was sacrificed, even in the figures of the Old Testament: hence it is stated in the Apocalypse (13:8): "Whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb, which was slain from the beginning of the world." But according to the second reason, it is proper to this sacrament for Christ to be sacrificed in its celebration.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: On the contrary, In hell there is no redemption [*Office of the Dead, Resp. vii]. But the saints were redeemed from limbo. Therefore limbo is not the same as hell.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Objection 1: It would seem that suffrages do not profit even those who are in purgatory. For purgatory is a part of hell. Now "there is no redemption in hell" [*Office of the Dead, Resp. vii], and it is written (Ps. 6:6), "Who shall confess to Thee in hell?" Therefore suffrages do not profit those who are in purgatory.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 1: The words quoted refer to those who are in the hell of the damned, where there is no redemption for those who are finally consigned to that punishment. We may also reply with Damascene (Serm.: De his qui in fide dormierunt) that such statements are to be explained with reference to the lower causes, that is according to the demands of the merits of those who are consigned to those punishments. But according to the Divine mercy which transcends human merits, it happens otherwise through the prayers of the righteous, than is implied by the expressions quoted in the aforesaid authorities. Now "God changes His sentence but not his counsel," as Gregory says (Moral. xx): wherefore the Damascene (Serm.: De his qui in fide dormierunt) quotes as instances of this the Ninevites, Achab and Ezechias, in whom it is apparent that the sentence pronounced against them by God was commuted by the Divine mercy [*Cf. 5037FP, Q19, A7, ad 2].


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: It is erroneous to say that any one except Christ is conceived without original sin, because those who would be conceived without original sin would not need the redemption which was wrought by Christ, and thus Christ would not be the Redeemer of all men [*See Editor's note which follows TP, Q26]. Nor can it be said that they needed not this redemption, because it was granted to them that they should be conceived without sin. For, this grace was vouchsafed---either to their parents, that the sin of nature might be healed in them (because so long as that sin remained they were unable to beget without communicating original sin)---or to nature itself which was healed. Now we must allow that every one needs the redemption of Christ personally, and not only by reason of nature, and one cannot be delivered from an evil or absolved from a debt unless one incur the debt or incur the evil: and consequently all could not reap in themselves the fruit of the Lord's prayer, unless all were born debtors and subject to evil. Hence the forgiveness of debts or delivery from evil cannot be applied to one who is born without a debt or free from evil, but only to one who is born with a debt and is afterwards delivered by the grace of Christ. Nor does it follow, if it can be asserted without error that some die not, that they are born without original sin, although death is a punishment of original sin; because God can of His mercy remit the punishment which one has incurred by a past fault, as He forgave the adulterous woman without punishment (Jn. 8): and in like manner He can deliver from death those who have contracted the debt of death by being born in original sin. And thus it does not follow that if they die not, therefore they were born without original sin.


SummaTheologicaAquinas
Found: Reply to Objection 3: Christ would not have sufficed for the redemption of mankind, had He been a mere man. Wherefore from the very fact that He was able as man to redeem mankind, and thereby obtained judicial power, it is evident that He is God, and consequently is to be honored equally with the Father, not as man but as God.

ALBEIT man, having brought himself into this woeful condition, be neither able to help himself, nor willing to be helped by God out of it, but rather inclined to lie still, insensible of it, till he perish; yet God, for the glory of his rich grace, hath revealed in his word a way to save sinners, viz. by faith in Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, by virtue of, and according to the tenor of the covenant of redemption, made and agreed upon between God the Father and God the Son, in the council of the Trinity, before the world began.

    Found: II. The sum of the covenant of redemption is this: God having freely chosen unto life a certain number of lost mankind, for the glory of his rich grace, did give them, before the world began, unto God the Son, appointed Redeemer, that, upon condition he would humble himself so far as to assume the human nature, of a soul and a body, unto personal union with his divine nature, and submit himself to the law, as surety for them, and satisfy justice for them, by giving obedience in their name, even unto the suffering of the cursed death of the cross, he should ransom and redeem them all from sin and death, and purchase unto them righteousness and eternal life, with all saving graces leading thereunto, to be effectually, by means of his own appointment, applied in due time to every one of them. This condition the Son of God (who is Jesus Christ our Lord) did accept before the world began, and in the fulness of time came into the world, was born of the Virgin Mary, subjected himself to the law, and completely paid the ransom on the cross: But by virtue of the foresaid bargain, made before the world began, he is in all ages, since the fall of Adam, still upon the work of applying actually the purchased benefits unto the elect; and that he doth by way of entertaining a covenant of free grace and reconciliation with them, through faith in himself; by which covenant, he makes over to every believer a right and interest to himself, and to all his blessings.

For the accomplishment of this covenant of redemption, and making the elect partakers of the benefits thereof in the covenant of grace, Christ Jesus was clad with the threefold office of Prophet, Priest, and King: made a Prophet, to reveal all saving knowledge to his people, and to persuade them to believe and obey the same; made a Priest, to offer up himself a sacrifice once for them all, and to intercede continually with the Father, for making their persons and services acceptable to him; and made a King, to subdue them to himself, to feed and rule them by his own appointed ordinances, and to defend them from their enemies.

BY these outward ordinances, as our Lord makes the reprobate inexcusable, so, by the power of his Spirit, he applies unto the elect, effectually, all saving graces purchased to them in the covenant of redemption, and maketh a change in their persons. In particular, 1. He doth convert or regenerate them, by giving spiritual life to them, in opening their understandings, renewing their wills, affections, and faculties, for giving spiritual obedience to his commands. 2. He gives them saving faith, by making them, in the sense of deserved condemnation, to give their consent heartily to the covenant of grace, and to embrace Jesus Christ unfeignedly. 3. He gives them repentance, by making them, with godly sorrow, in the hatred of sin, and love of righteousness, turn from all iniquity to the service of God. And, 4. He sanctifies them, by making them go on and persevere in faith and spiritual obedience to the law of God, manifested by fruitfulness in all duties, and doing good works, as God offereth occasion.

    Found: 4. That the fountain and first ground, from whence our freedom from the curse of the law doth flow, is the covenant of redemption, passed betwixt God and God the Son as incarnate, wherein Christ takes the curse of the law upon him for sin, that the believer, who could not otherwise be delivered from the covenant of works, may be delivered from it. And this doctrine the apostle holdeth forth in these four branches: (1.) That it was utterly impossible for the law, or the covenant of works, to bring righteousness and life to a sinner, because it was weak. (2.) That this weakness and inability of the law, or covenant of works, is not the fault of the law, but the fault of sinful flesh, which is neither able to pay the penalty of sin, nor to give perfect obedience to the law, (presuppose bygone sins were forgiven:) "The law was weak (saith he) through the flesh." (3.) That the righteousness and salvation of sinners, which was impossible to be brought about by the law, is brought to pass by sending God's own Son, Jesus Christ, in the flesh, in whose flesh sin is condemned and punished, for making satisfaction in the behalf of the elect, that they might be set free. (4.) That by his means the law loseth nothing, because the righteousness of the law is best fulfilled this way; first, by Christ's giving perfect active obedience in our name unto it in all things; next, by his paying in our name the penalty due to our sins in his death: and, lastly, by his working of sanctification in us, who are true believers, who strive to give new obedience unto the law, and "walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

Because faith cometh by hearing, he calleth for audience unto the explication of the offer, and calleth for believing of, and hastening unto the truth , which is able to beget the application of saving faith, and to draw the soul to trust in God: "Incline your ear, and come unto me," saith he. To which end, the Lord promises, that this offer being received, shall quicken the dead sinner; and that, upon the welcoming of this offer, he will close the covenant of grace with the man that shall consent unto it, even an indissolvable covenant of perpetual reconciliation and peace: "Hearken, and your soul shall live: and I will make an everlasting covenant with you." Which covenant, he declareth, shall be in substance the assignation, and the making over, of all the saving graces which David (who is Jesus Christ, nkjv@Acts:13:34.) hath bought for us in the covenant of redemption: "I will make a covenant with you, (saith he,) even the "sure mercies of David."

And truly he is a sufficient witness in this matter in many respects: 1st, Because he is one of the blessed Trinity, and party-contractor for us, in the covenant of redemption, before the world was. 2dly, He is by office, as Mediator, the Messenger of the covenant, and hath gotten commission to reveal it. 3dly, He began actually to reveal it in paradise, where he promised, that the seed of the woman should bruise the head of the serpent. 4thly, He set forth his own death and sufferings, and the great benefits that should come thereby to us, in the types and figures of sacrifices and ceremonies before his coming. 5thly, He gave more and more light about this covenant, speaking by his Spirit, from age to age, in the holy prophets. 6thly, He came himself, in the fulness of time, and did bear witness of all things belonging to this covenant, and of God's willing mind to take believers into it; partly, by uniting our nature in one person with the divine nature; partly, by preaching the good tidings of the covenant with his own mouth; partly, by paying the price of redemption on the cross; and partly, by dealing still with the people, from the beginning to this day, to draw in, and to hold in the redeemed in this covenant.

To make it appear how it cometh to pass that the covenant of reconciliation should be so easily made up betwixt God and a humble sinner fleeing to Christ, the apostle leads us unto the cause of it, holden forth in the covenant of redemption, the sum whereof is this: " It is agreed betwixt God and the Mediator Jesus Christ the Son of God, surety for the redeemed, as parties contractors, that the sins of the redeemed should be imputed to innocent Christ, and he both condemned and put to death for them, upon this very condition, that whosoever heartily consents unto the covenant of reconciliation offered through Christ, shall, by the imputation of his obedience unto them, be justified and holden righteous before God; for God hath made Christ, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, saith the apostle, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."

* you adorn him with glory and honor;7 You give him mastery over the works of your hands; you put all things under his feet:8 All sheep and oxen, * even the wild beasts of the field,9 The birds of the air, the fish of the sea, * and whatsoever walks in the paths of the sea.10 O LORD our Governor, how exalted is you Name in all the world!Second Day: Morning Prayer =Confitebor tibi=1 I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with my whole heart; * I will tell of all your marvelous works.2 I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing to your Name, O Most High.3 When my enemies are driven back, they will stumble and perish at your presence.4 For you have maintained my right and my cause; * you sit upon your throne judging right.5 You have rebuked the ungodly and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.6 As for the enemy, they are finished, in perpetual ruin, their cities plowed under, the memory of them perished;7 But the LORD is enthroned for ever; * he has set up this throne for judgment.8 It is he who rules the world with righteousness; he judges the peoples with equity.9 The LORD will be a refuge for the oppressed, * a refuge in time of trouble.10 Those who know your Name will put their trust in you, for you never forsake those who seek you, O LORD.11 Sing praise to the LORD who dwells in Zion; * proclaim to the peoples the things he has done.12 The Avenger of blood will remember them; * he will not forget the cry of the afflicted.13 Have pity on me, O LORD; * see the misery I suffer from those who hate me, O you who lift me up from the gate of death;14 So that I may tell of all your praisesand rejoice in your salvation in the gates of the city of Zion.15 The ungodly have fallen into the pit they dug, and in the snare they set is their own foot caught.16 The LORD is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are trapped in the works of their own hands.17 The wicked shall be given over to the grave, * and also all the people that forget God.18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.19 Rise up, O LORD, let not the ungodly have the upper hand; * let them be judged before you.20 Put fear upon them, O LORD; * let the ungodly know they are but mortal. =Ut quid, Domine?=1 Why do you stand so far off, O LORD, and hide yourself in time of trouble?2 The wicked arrogantly persecute the poor, but they are trapped in the schemes they have devised.3 The wicked boast of their heart's desire; * the covetous curse and revile the LORD.4 The wicked are so proud that they care not for God; * their only thought is, "God does not matter."5 Their ways are devious at all times;your judgments are far above out of their sight; * they defy all their enemies.6 They say in their heart, "I shall not be shaken; * no harm shall happen to me ever."7 Their mouth is full of cursing, deceit, and oppression; * under their tongue are mischief and wrong.8 They lurk in ambush in public squaresand in secret places they murder the innocent; * they spy out the helpless.9 They lie in wait, like a lion in a covert;they lie in wait to seize upon the lowly; * they seize the lowly and drag them away in their net.10 The innocent are broken and humbled before them; * the helpless fall before their power.11 They say in their heart, "God has forgotten; * he hides his face; he will never notice."12 Rise up, O LORD;lift up your hand, O God; do not forget the afflicted.13 Why should the wicked revile God? why should they say in their heart, "You do not care"?14 Surely, you behold trouble and misery; you see it and take it into your own hand.15 The helpless commit themselves to you, for you are the helper of orphans.16 Break the power of the wicked and evil; * search out their wickedness until you find none.17 The LORD is King for ever and ever; * the ungodly shall perish from his land.18 The LORD will hear the desire of the humble; * you will strengthen their heart and your ears shall hear;19 To give justice to the orphan and oppressed, * so that mere mortals may strike terror no more. =In Domino confido=1 In the LORD have I taken refuge; * how then can you say to me, "Fly away like a bird to the hilltop;2 For see how the wicked bend the bowand fit their arrows to the string, to shoot from ambush at the true of heart.3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?"4 The LORD is in his holy temple; * the LORD'S throne is in heaven.5 His eyes behold the inhabited world; his piercing eye weighs our worth.6 The LORD weighs the righteous as well as the wicked, but those who delight in violence he abhors.7 Upon the wicked he shall rain coals of fire and/burning sulphur; * a scorching wind shall be their lot.8 For the LORD is righteous;he delights in righteous deeds; * and the just shall see his face.Second Day: Evening Prayer =Salvum me fac=1 Help me, LORD, for there is no godly one left; * the faithful have vanished from among us.2 Everyone speaks falsely with his neighbor; with a smooth tongue they speak from a double heart.3 Oh, that the LORD would cut off all smooth tongues, and close the lips that utter proud boasts!4 Those who say, "With our tongue will we prevail; * our lips are our own; who is lord over us?"5 "Because the needy are oppressed,and the poor cry out in misery, I will rise up," says the LORD, "and give them the help they long for."6 The words of the LORD are pure words, * like silver refined from ore and purified seven times in the fire.7 O LORD, watch over us * and save us from this generation for ever.8 The wicked prowl on every side, and that which is worthless is highly prized by everyone. =Usquequo, Domine?=1 How long, O LORD?will you forget me for ever? * how long will you hide your face from me?2 How long shall I have perplexity in my mind,and grief in my heart, day after day? * how long shall my enemy triumph over me?3 Look upon me and answer me, O LORD my God; * give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;4 Lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him," * and my foes rejoice that I have fallen.5 But I put my trust in your mercy; * my heart is joyful because of your saving help.6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has dealt with me richly; * I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High. =Dixit insipiens=1 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." * All are corrupt and commit abominable acts; there is none who does any good.2 The LORD looks down from heaven upon us all, * to see if there is any who is wise, if there is one who seeks after God.3 Every one has proved faithless;all alike have turned bad; * there is none who does good; no, not one.4 Have they no knowledge, all those evildoers who eat up my people like bread and do not call upon the LORD?5 See how they tremble with fear, * because God is in the company of the righteous.6 Their aim is to confound the plans of the afflicted, but the LORD is their refuge.7 Oh, that Israel's deliverance would come out of Zion! when the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.*Third Day: Morning Prayer =Domine, quis habitabit?=1 LORD, who may dwell in your tabernacle? who may abide upon your holy hill?2 Whoever leads a blameless life and does what is right, who speaks the truth from his heart.3 There is no guile upon his tongue;he does no evil to his friend; he does not heap contempt upon his neighbor.4 In his sight the wicked is rejected, * but he honors those who fear the LORD.5 He has sworn to do no wrong * and does not take back his word.6 He does not give his money in hope of gain, * nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.7 Whoever does these things shall never be overthrown. =Conserva me, Domine=1 Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; * I have said to the LORD, "You are my Lord, my good above all other."2 All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, upon those who are noble among the people.3 But those who run after other gods * shall have their troubles multiplied.4 Their libations of blood I will not offer, nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.5 O LORD, you are my portion and my cup; * it is you who uphold my lot.6 My boundaries enclose a pleasant land; * indeed, I have a goodly heritage.7 I will bless the LORD who gives me counsel; * my heart teaches me, night after night.8 I have set the LORD always before me; * because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.9 My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices; my body also shall rest in hope.10 For you will not abandon me to the grave, nor let your holy one see the Pit.11 You will show me the path of life; * in your presence there is fullness of joy, and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore. =Exaudi, Domine=1 Hear my plea of innocence, O LORD;give heed to my cry; * listen to my prayer, which does not come from lying lips.2 Let my vindication come forth from your presence; let your eyes be fixed on justice.3 Weigh my heart, summon me by night, melt me down; you will find no impurity in me.4 I give no offense with my mouth as others do; * I have heeded the words of your lips.5 My footsteps hold fast to the ways of your law; * in your paths my feet shall not stumble.6 I call upon you, O God, for you will answer me; incline your ear to me and hear my words.7 Show me your marvelous loving-kindness, O Savior of those who take refuge at your right hand from those who rise up against them.8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me under the shadow of your wings,9 From the wicked who assault me, * from my deadly enemies who surround me.10 They have closed their heart to pity, * and their mouth speaks proud things.11 They press me hard,now they surround me, * watching how they may cast me to the ground,12 Like a lion, greedy for its prey, and like a young lion lurking in secret places.13 Arise, O LORD; confront them and bring them down; deliver me from the wicked by your sword.14 Deliver me, O LORD, by your hand from those whose portion in life is this world;15 Whose bellies you fill with your treasure, * who are well supplied with children and leave their wealth to their little ones.16 But at my vindication I shall see your face; when I awake, I shall be satisfied, beholding/your likeness.*Third Day: Evening Prayer =Diligam te, Domine.=1 I love you, O LORD my strength, O LORD my stronghold, my crag, and my haven.2 My God, my rock in whom I put my trust, my shield, the horn of my salvation, and my refuge; you are worthy of praise.3 I will call upon the LORD, and so shall I be saved from my enemies.4 The breakers of death rolled over me, * and the torrents of oblivion made me afraid.5 The cords of hell entangled me, * and the snares of death were set for me.6 I called upon the LORD in my distress and cried out to my God for help.7 He heard my voice from his heavenly dwelling; * my cry of anguish came to his ears.8 The earth reeled and rocked; * the roots of the mountains shook; they reeled because of his anger.9 Smoke rose from his nostrilsand a consuming fire out of his mouth; hot burning coals blazed forth from him.10 He parted the heavens and came down with a storm cloud under his feet.11 He mounted on cherubim and flew; * he swooped on the wings of the wind.12 He wrapped darkness about him; he made dark waters and thick clouds his pavilion.13 From the brightness of his presence, through the clouds, burst hailstones and coals of fire.14 The LORD thundered out of heaven; * the Most High uttered his voice.15 He loosed his arrows and scattered them; he hurled thunderbolts and routed them.16 The beds of the seas were uncovered,and the foundations of the world laid bare, at your battle cry, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of your nostrils.17 He reached down from on high and grasped me; * he drew me out of great waters.18 He delivered me from my strong enemiesand from those who hated me; * for they were too mighty for me.19 They confronted me in the day of my disaster; * but the LORD was my support.20 He brought me out into an open place; * he rescued me because he delighted in me. =Et retribuet mihi=21 The LORD rewarded me because of my righteous dealing; * because my hands were clean he rewarded me;22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD * and have not offended against my God;23 For all his judgments are before my eyes, * and his decrees I have not put away from me;24 For I have been blameless with him * and have kept myself from iniquity;25 Therefore the LORD rewarded me according to my/righteous dealing, * because of the cleanness of my hands in his sight.26 With the faithful you show yourself faithful, O God; with the forthright you show yourself forthright.27 With the pure you show yourself pure, * but with the crooked you are wily.28 You will save a lowly people, but you will humble the haughty eyes.29 You, O LORD, are my lamp; * my God, you make my darkness bright.30 With you I will break down an enclosure; * with the help of my God I will scale any wall.31 As for God, his ways are perfect;the words of the LORD are tried in the fire; * he is a shield to all who trust in him.32 For who is God, but the LORD? who is the Rock, except our God?33 It is God who girds me about with strength * and makes my way secure.34 He makes me sure-footed like a deer * and lets me stand firm on the heights.35 He trains my hands for battle and my arms for bending even a bow of bronze.36 You have given me your shield of victory; * your right hand also sustains me; your loving care makes me great.37 You lengthen my stride beneath me, * and my ankles do not give way.38 I pursue my enemies and overtake them; * I will not turn back till I have destroyed them.39 I strike them down, and they cannot rise; * they fall defeated at my feet.40 You have girded me with strength for the battle; * you have cast down my adversaries beneath me; you have put my enemies to flight41 I destroy those who hate me;they cry out, but there is none to help them; * they cry to the LORD, but he does not answer.42 I beat them small like dust before the wind; * I trample them like mud in the streets.43 You deliver me from the strife of the peoples; * you put me at the head of the nations.44 A people I have not known shall serve me;no sooner shall they hear than they shall obey me; * strangers will cringe before me.45 The foreign peoples will lose heart; they shall come trembling out of their strongholds.46 The LORD lives Blessed is my Rock * Exalted is the God of my salvation!47 He is the God who gave me victory and cast down the peoples beneath me.48 You rescued me from the fury of my enemies;you exalted me above those who rose against me; you saved me from my deadly foe.49 Therefore will I extol you among the nations, O LORD, and sing praises to your Name.50 He multiplies the victories of his king; he shows loving-kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants for ever.*Fourth Day: Morning Prayer =Caeli enarrant=1 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows his handiwork.2 One day tells its tale to another, * and one night imparts knowledge to another.3 Although they have no words or language, * and their voices are not heard,4 Their sound has gone out into all lands, and their message to the ends of the world.5 In the deep has he set a pavilion for the sun; * it comes forth like a bridegroom out of his chamber; it rejoices like a champion to run its course.6 It goes forth from the uttermost edge of the heavensand runs about to the end of it again; * nothing is hidden from its burning heat.7 The law of the LORD is perfect/and revives the soul; * the testimony of the LORD is sure/and gives wisdom to the innocent.8 The statutes of the LORD are just/and rejoice the heart; * the commandment of the LORD is clear/and gives light to the eyes.9 The fear of the LORD is clean/and endures for ever; the judgments of the LORD are true/and righteous altogether.10 More to be desired are they than gold,/more than much fine gold, * sweeter far than honey,/than honey in the comb.11 By them also is your servant enlightened, * and in keeping them there is great reward.12 Who can tell how often he offends? cleanse me from my secret faults.13 Above all, keep your servant from presumptuous sins;let them not get dominion over me; then shall I be whole and sound, and innocent of a great offense.14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my/heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer. =Exaudiat te Dominus=1 May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble, * the Name of the God of Jacob defend you;2 Send you help from his holy place * and strengthen you out of Zion;3 Remember all your offerings * and accept your burnt sacrifice;4 Grant you your heart's desire * and prosper all your plans.5 We will shout for joy at your victoryand triumph in the Name of our God; * may the LORD grant all your requests.6 Now I know that the LORD gives victory to his anointed; he will answer him out of his holy heaven, with the victorious strength of his right hand.7 Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses, * but we will call upon the Name of the LORD our God.8 They collapse and fall down, * but we will arise and stand upright.9 O LORD, give victory to the king and answer us when we call. =Domine, in virtute tua=1 The king rejoices in your strength, O LORD; * how greatly he exults in your victory!2 You have given him his heart's desire; * you have not denied him the request of his lips.3 For you meet him with blessings of prosperity, and set a crown of fine gold upon his head.4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him: length of days, for ever and ever.5 His honor is great, because of your victory; splendor and majesty have you bestowed upon him.6 For you will give him everlasting felicity and will make him glad with the joy of your presence.7 For the king puts his trust in the LORD; * because of the loving-kindness of the Most High, he/will not fall.8 Your hand will lay hold upon all your enemies; your right hand will seize all those who hate you.9 You will make them like a fiery furnace at the time of your appearing, O LORD;10 You will swallow them up in your wrath, and fire shall consume them.11 You will destroy their offspring from the land * and their descendants from among the peoples of the earth.12 Though they intend evil against youand devise wicked schemes, * yet they shall not prevail.13 For you will put them to flight and aim your arrows at them.14 Be exalted, O LORD, in your might; * we will sing and praise your power.Fourth Day: Evening Prayer =Deus, Deus meus=1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? * and are so far from my cry and from the words of my distress?2 O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not answer; by night as well, but I find no rest.3 Yet you are the Holy One, enthroned upon the praises of Israel.4 Our forefathers put their trust in you; * they trusted, and you delivered them.5 They cried out to you and were delivered; they trusted in you and were not put to shame.6 But as for me, I am a worm and no man, scorned by all and despised by the people.7 All who see me laugh me to scorn; * they curl their lips and wag their heads, saying,8 "He trusted in the LORD; let him deliver him; let him rescue him, if he delights in him."9 Yet you are he who took me out of the womb, and kept me safe upon my mother's breast.10 I have been entrusted to you ever since I was born; you were my God when I was still in my/mother's womb.11 Be not far from me, for trouble is near, and there is none to help.12 Many young bulls encircle me; strong bulls of Bashan surround me.13 They open wide their jaws at me, like a ravening and a roaring lion.14 I am poured out like water;all my bones are out of joint; * my heart within my breast is melting wax.15 My mouth is dried out like a pot-sherd;my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; * and you have laid me in the dust of the grave.16 Packs of dogs close me in,and gangs of evildoers circle around me; * they pierce my hands and my feet; I can count all my bones.17 They stare and gloat over me; * they divide my garments among them; they cast lots for my clothing.18 Be not far away, O LORD; * you are my strength; hasten to help me.19 Save me from the sword, my life from the power of the dog.20 Save me from the lion's mouth, my wretched body from the horns of wild bulls.21 I will declare your Name to my brethren; * in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.22 Praise the LORD, you that fear him; * stand in awe of him, O offspring of Israel; all you of Jacob's line, give glory.23 For he does not despise nor abhor the poor in their poverty;neither does he hide his face from them; * but when they cry to him he hears them.24 My praise is of him in the great assembly; I will perform my vows in the presence of those who/worship him.25 The poor shall eat and be satisfied,and those who seek the LORD shall praise him: * "May your heart live for ever!"26 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to/the LORD, and all the families of the nations bow before him.27 For kingship belongs to the LORD; * he rules over the nations.28 To him alone all who sleep in the earth bow down/in worship; * all who go down to the dust fall before him.29 My soul shall live for him;my descendants shall serve him; they shall be known as the LORD'S for ever.30 They shall come and make known to a people yet unborn the saving deeds that he has done. =Dominus regit me=1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not be in want.2 He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me beside still waters.3 He revives my soul * and guides me along right pathways for his Name's sake.4 Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I shall fear no evil; * for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.5 You spread a table before me in the presence of those/who trouble me; you have anointed my head with oil, and my cup is running over.6 Surely your goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days/of my life, * and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.*Fifth Day: Morning Prayer =Domini est terra=1 The earth is the LORD'S and all that is in it, the world and all who dwell therein.2 For it is he who founded it upon the seas * and made it firm upon the rivers of the deep.3 "Who can ascend the hill of the LORD? * and who can stand in his holy place?"4 "Those who have clean hands and a pure heart, * who have not pledged themselves to falsehood, nor sworn by what is a fraud.5 They shall receive a blessing from the LORD * and a just reward from the God of their salvation."6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, of those who seek your face, O God of Jacob.7 Lift up your heads, O gates;lift them high, O everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.8 "Who is this King of glory?" "The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle."9 Lift up your heads, O gates;lift them high, O everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.10 "Who is he, this King of glory?" "The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory." =Ad te, Domine, levavi=1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;my God, I put my trust in you; * let me not be humiliated, nor let my enemies triumph over me.2 Let none who look to you be put to shame; let the treacherous be disappointed in their schemes.3 Show me your ways, O LORD, * and teach me your paths.4 Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; in you have I trusted all the day long.5 Remember, O LORD, your compassion and love, * for they are from everlasting.6 Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions; * remember me according to your love and for the sake of your goodness, O LORD.7 Gracious and upright is the LORD; therefore he teaches sinners in his way.8 He guides the humble in doing right * and teaches his way to the lowly.9 All the paths of the LORD are love and faithfulness * to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.10 For your Name's sake, O LORD, * forgive my sin, for it is great.11 Who are they who fear the LORD? * he will teach them the way that they should choose.12 They shall dwell in prosperity, * and their offspring shall inherit the land.13 The LORD is a friend to those who fear him * and will show them his covenant.14 My eyes are ever looking to the LORD, * for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.15 Turn to me and have pity on me, for I am left alone and in misery.16 The sorrows of my heart have increased; bring me out of my troubles.17 Look upon my adversity and misery * and forgive me all my sin.18 Look upon my enemies, for they are many, and they bear a violent hatred against me.19 Protect my life and deliver me; let me not be put to shame, for I have trusted in you.20 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, * for my hope has been in you.21 Deliver Israel, O God, out of all his troubles. =Judica me, Domine=1 Give judgment for me, O LORD,for I have lived with integrity; * I have trusted in the Lord and have not faltered.2 Test me, O LORD, and try me; * examine my heart and my mind.3 For your love is before my eyes; I have walked faithfully with you.4 I have not sat with the worthless, nor do I consort with the deceitful.5 I have hated the company of evildoers; I will not sit down with the wicked.6 I will wash my hands in innocence, O LORD, * that I may go in procession round your altar,7 Singing aloud a song of thanksgiving * and recounting all your wonderful deeds.8 LORD, I love the house in which you dwell * and the place where your glory abides.9 Do not sweep me away with sinners, nor my life with those who thirst for blood,10 Whose hands are full of evil plots, * and their right hand full of bribes.11 As for me, I will live with integrity; * redeem me, O LORD, and have pity on me.12 My foot stands on level ground; in the full assembly I will bless the LORD.*Fifth Day: Evening Prayer =Dominus illuminatio=1 The LORD is my light and my salvation;whom then shall I fear? * the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?2 When evildoers came upon me to eat up my flesh, it was they, my foes and my adversaries, who/stumbled and fell.3 Though an army should encamp against me, yet my heart shall not be afraid;4 And though war should rise up against me, * yet will I put my trust in him.5 One thing have I asked of the LORD;one thing I seek; * that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days/of my life;6 To behold the fair beauty of the LORD * and to seek him in his temple.7 For in the day of trouble he shall keep me safe/in his shelter; he shall hide me in the secrecy of his dwelling and set me high upon a rock.8 Even now he lifts up my head above my enemies round about me.9 Therefore I will offer in his dwelling an oblationwith sounds of great gladness; * I will sing and make music to the LORD.10 Hearken to my voice, O LORD, when I call; have mercy on me and answer me.11 You speak in my heart and say, "Seek my face." * Your face, LORD, will I seek.12 Hide not your face from me, nor turn away your servant in displeasure.13 You have been my helper;cast me not away; do not forsake me, O God of my salvation.14 Though my father and my mother forsake me, the LORD will sustain me.15 Show me your way, O LORD; lead me on a level path, because of my enemies.16 Deliver me not into the hand of my adversaries, * for false witnesses have risen up against me, and also those who speak malice.17 What if I had not believedthat I should see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!18 O tarry and await the LORD'S pleasure;be strong, and he shall comfort your heart; * wait patiently for the LORD. =Ad te, Domine=1 O LORD, I call to you;my Rock, do not be deaf to my cry; lest, if you do not hear me, I become like those who go down to the Pit.2 Hear the voice of my prayer when I cry out to you, * when I lift up my hands to your holy of holies.3 Do not snatch me away with the wicked or with the/evildoers, * who speak peaceably with their neighbors, while strife is in their hearts.4 Repay them according to their deeds, * and according to the wickedness of their actions.5 According to the work of their hands repay them, and give them their just deserts.6 They have no understanding of the LORD'S doings,nor of the works of his hands; therefore he will break them down and not/build them up.7 Blessed is the LORD! for he has heard the voice of my prayer.8 The LORD is my strength and my shield; * my heart trusts in him, and I have been helped;9 Therefore my heart dances for joy, * and in my song will I praise him.10 The LORD is the strength of his people, * a safe refuge for his anointed.11 Save your people and bless your inheritance; * shepherd them and carry them for ever. =Afferte Domino=1 Ascribe to the LORD, you gods, * ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his Name; * worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters;the God of glory thunders; * the LORD is upon the mighty waters.4 The voice of the LORD is a powerful voice; * the voice of the LORD is a voice of splendor.5 The voice of the LORD breaks the cedar trees; * the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon;6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, * and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox.7 The voice of the LORD splits the flames of fire;the voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.8 The voice of the LORD makes the oak trees writhe * and strips the forests bare.9 And in the temple of the LORD all are crying, "Glory!"10 The LORD sits enthroned above the flood; * the LORD sits enthroned as King for evermore.11 The LORD shall give strength to his people; the LORD shall give his people the blessing of peace.*Sixth Day: Morning Prayer =Exaltabo te, Domine=1 I will exalt you, O LORD,because you have lifted me up and have not let my enemies triumph over me.2 O LORD my God, I cried out to you, and you restored me to health.3 You brought me up, O LORD, from the dead; * you restored my life as I was going down to the grave.4 Sing to the LORD, you servants of his; give thanks for the remembrance of his holiness.5 For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye, * his favor for a lifetime.6 Weeping may spend the night, * but joy comes in the morning.7 While I felt secure, I said,"I shall never be disturbed. * You, LORD, with your favor, made me as strong as/the mountains."8 Then you hid your face, and I was filled with fear.9 I cried to you, O LORD; I pleaded with the Lord, saying,10 "What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the Pit? will the dust praise you or declare your faithfulness?11 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me; * O LORD, be my helper."12 You have turned my wailing into dancing; * you have put off my sack-cloth and clothed me with joy.13 Therefore my heart sings to you without ceasing; * O LORD my God, I will give you thanks for ever. =In te, Domine, speravi=1 In you, O LORD, have I taken refuge;let me never be put to shame; * deliver me in your righteousness.2 Incline your ear to me; * make haste to deliver me.3 Be my strong rock, a castle to keep me safe,for you are my crag and my stronghold; for the sake of your Name, lead me and guide me.4 Take me out of the net that they have secretly set for me, * for you are my tower of strength.5 Into your hands I commend my spirit, * for you have redeemed me, O LORD, O God of truth.6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols, and I put my trust in the LORD.7 I will rejoice and be glad because of your mercy; * for you have seen my affliction; you know my distress.8 You have not shut me up in the power of the enemy; * you have set my feet in an open place.9 Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am in trouble; * my eye is consumed with sorrow, and also my throat and my belly.10 For my life is wasted with grief,and my years with sighing; * my strength fails me because of affliction, and my bones are consumed.11 I have become a reproach to all my enemies and/even to my neighbors,a dismay to those of my acquaintance; * when they see me in the street they avoid me.12 I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; * I am as useless as a broken pot.13 For I have heard the whispering of the crowd;fear is all around; * they put their heads together against me; they plot to take my life.14 But as for me, I have trusted in you, O LORD. * I have said, "You are my God.15 My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.16 Make your face to shine upon your servant, and in your loving-kindness save me."17 LORD, let me not be ashamed for having called upon you; * rather, let the wicked be put to shame; let them be silent in the grave.18 Let the lying lips be silenced which speak against/the righteous, * haughtily, disdainfully, and with contempt.19 How great is your goodness, O LORD!which you have laid up for those who fear you; * which you have done in the sight of all for those who put their trust in you.20 You hide them in the covert of your presence from those/who slander them; you keep them in your shelter from the strife of tongues.21 Blessed be the LORD! * for he has shown me the wonders of his love in a/besieged city.22 Yet I said in my alarm,"I have been cut off from the sight of your eyes." Nevertheless, you heard the sound of my entreaty when I cried out to you.23 Love the LORD, all you who worship him; the LORD protects the faithful, but repays to the full those who act haughtily.24 Be strong and let your heart take courage, * all you who wait for the LORD.*Sixth Day: Evening Prayer10 The righteous will be glad when they see the vengeance;

protect me from those who rise up against me.2 Rescue me from evildoers and save me from those who thirst for my blood.3 See how they lie in wait for my life,how the mighty gather together against me; * not for any offense or fault of mine, O LORD.4 Not because of any guilt of mine * they run and prepare themselves for battle.5 Rouse yourself, come to my side, and see; * for you, LORD God of hosts, are Israel's God.6 Awake, and punish all the ungodly; * show no mercy to those who are faithless and evil.7 They go to and fro in the evening; * they snarl like dogs and run about the city.8 Behold, they boast with their mouths,and taunts are on their lips; * "For who," they say, "will hear us?"9 But you, O LORD, you laugh at them; * you laugh all the ungodly to scorn.10 My eyes are fixed on you, O my Strength; * for you, O God, are my stronghold.11 My merciful God comes to meet me;

* you have been angry; oh, take us back to you again.2 You have shaken the earth and split it open; * repair the cracks in it, for it totters.3 You have made your people know hardship; you have given us wine that makes us stagger.4 You have set up a banner for those who fear you, * to be a refuge from the power of the bow.5 Save us by your right hand and answer us, * that those who are dear to you may be delivered.6 God spoke from his holy place and said: "I will exult and parcel out Shechem; I will divide the valley of Succoth.7 Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine; * Ephraim is my helmet and Judah my scepter.8 Moab is my wash-basin,on Edom I throw down my sandal to claim it, and over Philistia will I shout in triumph."9 Who will lead me into the strong city? * who will bring me to Edom?10 Have you not cast us off, O God? * you no longer go out, O God, with our armies.11 Grant us your help against the enemy, * for vain is the help of man.12 With God we will do valiant deeds, and he shall tread our enemies under foot. =Exaudi, Deus=1 Hear my cry, O God, * and listen to my prayer.2 I call upon you from the ends of the earthwith heaviness in my heart; set me upon the rock that is higher than I.3 For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.4 I will dwell in your house for ever; * I will take refuge under the cover of your wings.5 For you, O God, have heard my vows; * you have granted me the heritage of those/who fear your Name.6 Add length of days to the king's life; * let his years extend over many generations.7 Let him sit enthroned before God for ever; bid love and faithfulness watch over him.8 So will I always sing the praise of your Name, * and day by day I will fulfill my vows.*Twelfth Day: Morning Prayer =Nonne Deo?=1 For God alone my soul in silence waits; from him comes my salvation.2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, * my stronghold, so that I shall not be greatly shaken.3 How long will you assail me to crush me,all of you together, as if you were a leaning fence, a toppling wall?4 They seek only to bring me down from my place of honor; lies are their chief delight.5 They bless with their lips, but in their hearts they curse.6 For God alone my soul in silence waits; truly, my hope is in him.7 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold, so that I shall not be shaken.8 In God is my safety and my honor; God is my strong rock and my refuge.9 Put your trust in him always, O people, pour out your hearts before him, for God is our refuge.10 Those of high degree are but a fleeting breath, even those of low estate cannot be trusted.11 On the scales they are lighter than a breath, all of them together.12 Put no trust in extortion;in robbery take no empty pride; though wealth increase, set not your heart upon it.13 God has spoken once, twice have I heard it, * that power belongs to God.14 Steadfast love is yours, O Lord, for you repay everyone according to his deeds. =Deus, Deus meus=1 O God, you are my God; eagerly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you, as in a barren and dry land where there is no water.2 Therefore I have gazed upon you in your holy place, that I might behold your power and your glory.3 For your loving-kindness is better than life itself; my lips shall give you praise.4 So will I bless you as long as I live * and lift up my hands in your Name.5 My soul is content, as with marrow and fatness, * and my mouth praises you with joyful lips,6 When I remember you upon my bed, * and meditate on you in the night watches.7 For you have been my helper, and under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.8 My soul clings to you;

* for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped. =Exaudi, Deus=1 Hear my voice, O God, when I complain; protect my life from fear of the enemy.2 Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, * from the mob of evildoers.3 They sharpen their tongue like a sword, and aim their bitter words like arrows,4 That they may shoot down the blameless from ambush; * they shoot without warning and are not afraid.5 They hold fast to their evil course; they plan how they may hide their snares.6 They say, "Who will see us?who will find out our crimes? we have thought out a perfect plot."7 The human mind and heart are a mystery; * but God will loose an arrow at them, and suddenly they will be wounded.8 He will make them trip over their tongues, * and all who see them will shake their heads.9 Everyone will stand in awe and declare God's deeds; they will recognize his works.10 The righteous will rejoice in the LORD and put their trust in him, * and all who are true of heart will glory.*Twelfth Day: Evening Prayer =Te decet hymnus=1 You are to be praised, O God, in Zion;

they are girded about with might.7 You still the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the clamor of the peoples.8 Those who dwell at the ends of the earth will tremble at your/marvelous signs; * you make the dawn and the dusk to sing for joy.9 You visit the earth and water it abundantly;you make it very plenteous; the river of God is full of water.10 You prepare the grain, for so you provide for the earth.11 You drench the furrows and smooth out the ridges; with heavy rain you soften the ground and bless its increase.12 You crown the year with your goodness, * and your paths overflow with plenty.13 May the fields of the wilderness be rich for grazing, and the hills be clothed with joy.14 May the meadows cover themselves with flocks,and the valleys cloak themselves with grain; * let them shout for joy and sing. =Jubilate Deo=1 Be joyful in God, all you lands; * sing the glory of his Name; sing the glory of his praise.2 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! because of your great strength your enemies/cringe before you.3 All the earth bows down before you, sings to you, sings out your Name."4 Come now and see the works of God, how wonderful he is in his doing toward all people.5 He turned the sea into dry land,so that they went through the water on foot, and there we rejoiced in him.6 In his might he rules for ever;his eyes keep watch over the nations; * let no rebel rise up against him.7 Bless our God, you peoples; * make the voice of his praise to be heard;8 Who holds our souls in life, * and will not allow our feet to slip.9 For you, O God, have proved us; * you have tried us just as silver is tried.10 You brought us into the snare; * you laid heavy burdens upon our backs.11 You let enemies ride over our heads;we went through fire and water; but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.12 I will enter your house with burnt-offeringsand will pay you my vows, which I promised with my lips and spoke with my mouth when I was in trouble.13 I will offer you sacrifices of fat beastswith the smoke of rams; I will give you oxen and goats.14 Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he has done for me.15 I called out to him with my mouth, and his praise was on my tongue.16 If I had found evil in my heart, the Lord would not have heard me;17 But in truth God has heard me; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.18 Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer, nor withheld his love from me. =Deus misereatur=1 May God be merciful to us and bless us, show us the light of his countenance and come to us.2 Let your ways be known upon earth, your saving health among all nations.3 Let the peoples praise you, O God;

but the rebels shall live in dry places.7 O God, when you went forth before your people, * when you marched through the wilderness,8 The earth shook, and the skies poured down rain,at the presence of God, the God of Sinai, at the presence of God, the God of Israel.9 You sent a gracious rain, O God, upon your inheritance; * you refreshed the land when it was weary.10 Your people found their home in it; * in your goodness, O God, you have made provision/for the poor.11 The Lord gave the word; * great was the company of women who bore the tidings:12 "Kings with their armies are fleeing away; the women at home are dividing the spoils."13 Though you lingered among the sheepfolds, * you shall be like a dove whose wings are covered with silver, whose feathers are like green gold.14 When the Almighty scattered kings, * it was like snow falling in Zalmon.15 O mighty mountain, O hill of Bashan! * O rugged mountain, O hill of Bashan!16 Why do you look with envy, O rugged mountain,at the hill which God chose for his resting place? truly, the LORD will dwell there for ever.17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand,even thousands of thousands; * the Lord comes in holiness from Sinai.18 You have gone up on high and led captivity captive;you have received gifts even from your enemies, that the LORD God might dwell among them.19 Blessed be the Lord day by day, the God of our salvation, who bears our burdens.20 He is our God, the God of our salvation; God is the LORD, by whom we escape death.21 God shall crush the heads of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of those who go on still in their/wickedness.22 The Lord has said, "I will bring them back from Bashan;

* my eyes have failed from looking for my God.5 Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs/of my head;my lying foes who would destroy me are mighty. Must I then give back what I never stole?6 O God, you know my foolishness, and my faults are not hidden from you.7 Let not those who hope in you be put to shame through me,/Lord GOD of hosts; * let not those who seek you be disgraced because of me,/O God of Israel.8 Surely, for your sake have I suffered reproach, and shame has covered my face.9 I have become a stranger to my own kindred, an alien to my mother's children.10 Zeal for your house has eaten me up; the scorn of those who scorn you has fallen upon me.11 I humbled myself with fasting, * but that was turned to my reproach.12 I put on sack-cloth also, * and became a byword among them.13 Those who sit at the gate murmur against me, * and the drunkards make songs about me.14 But as for me, this is my prayer to you, at the time you have set, O kjv@LORD:15 "In your great mercy, O God, * answer me with your unfailing help.16 Save me from the mire; do not let me sink; * let me be rescued from those who hate me and out of the deep waters.17 Let not the torrent of waters wash over me,neither let the deep swallow me up; * do not let the Pit shut its mouth upon me.18 Answer me, O LORD, for your love is kind;

* my adversaries are all in your sight."22 Reproach has broken my heart, and it cannot be healed; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I could find no one.23 They gave me gall to eat, * and when I was thirsty, they gave me vinegar to drink.24 Let the table before them be a trap * and their sacred feasts a snare.25 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, * and give them continual trembling in their loins.26 Pour out your indignation upon them, * and let the fierceness of your anger overtake them.27 Let their camp be desolate, * and let there be none to dwell in their tents.28 For they persecute him whom you have stricken * and add to the pain of those whom you have pierced.29 Lay to their charge guilt upon guilt, * and let them not receive your vindication.30 Let them be wiped out of the book of the living and not be written among the righteous.31 As for me, I am afflicted and in pain; * your help, O God, will lift me up on high.32 I will praise the Name of God in song; I will proclaim his greatness with thanksgiving.33 This will please the LORD more than an offering of oxen, more than bullocks with horns and hoofs.34 The afflicted shall see and be glad; you who seek God, your heart shall live.35 For the LORD listens to the needy, * and his prisoners he does not despise.36 Let the heavens and the earth praise him, the seas and all that moves in them;37 For God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah;

he shall preserve the lives of the needy.14 He shall redeem their lives from oppression and violence, and dear shall their blood be in his sight.15 Long may he live!and may there be given to him gold from Arabia; * may prayer be made for him always, and may they bless him all the day long.16 May there be abundance of grain on the earth,growing thick even on the hilltops; * may its fruit flourish like Lebanon, and its grain like grass upon the earth.17 May his Name remain for everand be established as long as the sun endures; may all the nations bless themselves in him and/call him blessed.18 Blessed be the Lord GOD, the God of Israel, * who alone does wondrous deeds19 And blessed be his glorious Name for ever and may all the earth be filled with his glory./Amen. Amen.Fourteenth Day: Evening Prayer =Quam bonus Israel!=1 Truly, God is good to Israel, * to those who are pure in heart.2 But as for me, my feet had nearly slipped; * I had almost tripped and fallen;3 Because I envied the proud and saw the prosperity of the wicked:4 For they suffer no pain, and their bodies are sleek and sound;5 In the misfortunes of others they have no share; * they are not afflicted as others are;6 Therefore they wear their pride like a necklace and wrap their violence about them like a cloak.7 Their iniquity comes from gross minds, and their hearts overflow with wicked thoughts.8 They scoff and speak maliciously; out of their haughtiness they plan oppression.9 They set their mouths against the heavens, * and their evil speech runs through the world.10 And so the people turn to them * and find in them no fault.11 They say, "How should God know? is there knowledge in the Most High?"12 So then, these are the wicked; always at ease, they increase their wealth.13 In vain have I kept my heart clean, * and washed my hands in innocence.14 I have been afflicted all day long, * and punished every morning.15 Had I gone on speaking this way, * I should have betrayed the generation of your children.16 When I tried to understand these things, it was too hard for me;17 Until I entered the sanctuary of God * and discerned the end of the wicked.18 Surely, you set them in slippery places; you cast them down in ruin.19 Oh, how suddenly do they come to destruction, * come to an end, and perish from terror!20 Like a dream when one awakens, O Lord, * when you arise you will make their image vanish.21 When my mind became embittered, I was sorely wounded in my heart.22 I was stupid and had no understanding; * I was like a brute beast in your presence.23 Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.24 You will guide me by your counsel, * and afterwards receive me with glory.25 Whom have I in heaven but you? and having you I desire nothing upon earth.26 Though my flesh and my heart should waste away, * God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever.27 Truly, those who forsake you will perish; * you destroy all who are unfaithful.28 But it is good for me to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge.29 I will speak of all your works in the gates of the city of Zion. =Ut quid, Deus?=1 O God, why have you utterly cast us off? why is your wrath so hot against the sheep of your pasture?2 Remember your congregation that you purchased long ago, the tribe you redeemed to be your inheritance, and Mount Zion where you dwell.3 Turn your steps toward the endless ruins; * the enemy has laid waste everything in your sanctuary.4 Your adversaries roared in your holy place; * they set up their banners as tokens of victory.5 They were like men coming up with axes to a grove of trees; * they broke down all your carved work with hatchets/and hammers.6 They set fire to your holy place; they defiled the dwelling-place of your Name and razed it to the ground.7 They said to themselves, "Let us destroy them altogether." They burned down all the meeting-places of God/in the land.8 There are no signs for us to see;there is no prophet left; there is not one among us who knows how long.9 How long, O God, will the adversary scoff? * will the enemy blaspheme your Name for ever?10 Why do you draw back your hand? * why is your right hand hidden in your bosom?11 Yet God is my King from ancient times, * victorious in the midst of the earth.12 You divided the sea by your might and shattered the heads of the dragons upon the waters;13 You crushed the heads of Leviathan * and gave him to the people of the desert for food.14 You split open spring and torrent; * you dried up ever-flowing rivers.15 Yours is the day, yours also the night; * you established the moon and the sun.16 You fixed all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.17 Remember, O LORD, how the enemy scoffed, how a foolish people despised your Name.18 Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; * never forget the lives of your poor.19 Look upon your covenant; * the dark places of the earth are haunts of violence.20 Let not the oppressed turn away ashamed; * let the poor and needy praise your Name.21 Arise, O God, maintain your cause; * remember how fools revile you all day long.22 Forget not the clamor of your adversaries, the unending tumult of those who rise up against you.*Fifteenth Day: Morning Prayer =Confitebimur tibi=1 We give you thanks, O God, we give you thanks, * calling upon your Name and declaring all your/wonderful deeds.2 "I will appoint a time," says God; "I will judge with equity.3 Though the earth and all its inhabitants are quaking, * I will make its pillars fast.4 I will say to the boasters, 'Boast no more,' and to the wicked, 'Do not toss your horns;5 Do not toss your horns so high, nor speak with a proud neck.'"6 For judgment is neither from the east nor from the west, nor yet from the wilderness or the mountains.7 It is God who judges; he puts down one and lifts up another.8 For in the LORD'S hand there is a cup,full of spiced and foaming wine, which he pours out, and all the wicked of the earth shall drink and/drain the dregs.9 But I will rejoice for ever; * I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.10 He shall break off all the horns of the wicked; * but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted. =Notus in Judaea=1 In Judah is God known; his Name is great in Israel.2 At Salem is his tabernacle, * and his dwelling is in Zion.3 There he broke the flashing arrows, * the shield, the sword, and the weapons of battle.4 How glorious you are! more splendid than the everlasting mountains!5 The strong of heart have been despoiled;they sink into sleep; none of the warriors can lift a hand.6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob, * both horse and rider lie stunned.7 What terror you inspire! who can stand before you when you are angry?8 From heaven you pronounced judgment; * the earth was afraid and was still;9 When God rose up to judgment and to save all the oppressed of the earth.10 Truly, wrathful Edom will give you thanks, and the remnant of Hamath will keep your feasts.11 Make a vow to the LORD your God and keep it; let all around him bring gifts to him who is worthy/to be feared.12 He breaks the spirit of princes, and strikes terror in the kings of the earth. =Voce mea ad Domi1 I will cry aloud to God; * I will cry aloud, and he will hear me.2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord; * my hands were stretched out by night and did not tire; I refused to be comforted.3 I think of God, I am restless, * I ponder, and my spirit faints.4 You will not let my eyelids close; * I am troubled and I cannot speak.5 I consider the days of old; * I remember the years long past;6 I commune with my heart in the night; I ponder and search my mind.7 Will the Lord cast me off for ever? * will he no more show his favor?8 Has his loving-kindness come to an end for ever? * has his promise failed for evermore?9 Has God forgotten to be gracious? * has he, in his anger, withheld his compassion?10 And I said, "My grief is this: * the right hand of the Most High has lost its power."11 I will remember the works of the LORD, * and call to mind your wonders of old time.12 I will meditate on all your acts and ponder your mighty deeds.13 Your way, O God, is holy; * who is so great a god as our God?14 You are the God who works wonders and have declared your power among the peoples.15 By your strength you have redeemed your people, the children of Jacob and Joseph.16 The waters saw you, O God;the waters saw you and trembled; * the very depths were shaken.17 The clouds poured out water;the skies thundered; * your arrows flashed to and fro;18 The sound of your thunder was in the whirlwind;your lightnings lit up the world; the earth trembled and shook.19 Your way was in the sea,and your paths in the great waters, * yet your footsteps were not seen.20 You led your people like a flock * by the hand of Moses and Aaron.*Fifteenth Day: Evening Prayer =Attendite, popule=1 Hear my teaching, O my people; * incline your ears to the words of my mouth.2 I will open my mouth in a parable; * I will declare the mysteries of ancient times.3 That which we have heard and known,and what our forefathers have told us, we will not hide from their children.4 We will recount to generations to comethe praiseworthy deeds and the power of the LORD, * and the wonderful works he has done.5 He gave his decrees to Jacoband established a law for Israel, which he commanded them to teach their children;6 That the generations to come might know,and the children yet unborn; * that they in their turn might tell it to their children;7 So that they might put their trust in God, * and not forget the deeds of God, but keep his commandments;8 And not be like their forefathers,a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, and whose spirit was not faithful to God.9 The people of Ephraim, armed with the bow, turned back in the day of battle;10 They did not keep the covenant of God, * and refused to walk in his law;11 They forgot what he had done, and the wonders he had shown them.12 He worked marvels in the sight of their forefathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.13 He split open the sea and let them pass through; * he made the waters stand up like walls.14 He led them with a cloud by day, and all the night through with a glow of fire.15 He split the hard rocks in the wilderness * and gave them drink as from the great deep.16 He brought streams out of the cliff, * and the waters gushed out like rivers.17 But they went on sinning against him, * rebelling in the desert against the Most High.18 They tested God in their hearts, * demanding food for their craving.19 They railed against God and said, "Can God set a table in the wilderness?20 True, he struck the rock, the waters gushed out, and the/gullies overflowed; * but is he able to give bread or to provide meat for his people?"21 When the LORD heard this, he was full of wrath; * a fire was kindled against Jacob, and his anger mounted against Israel;22 For they had no faith in God, nor did they put their trust in his saving power.23 So he commanded the clouds above * and opened the doors of heaven.24 He rained down manna upon them to eat and gave them grain from heaven.25 So mortals ate the bread of angels; * he provided for them food enough.26 He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens and led out the south wind by his might.27 He rained down flesh upon them like dust * and winge!d birds like the sand of the sea.28 He let it fall in the midst of their camp * and round about their dwellings.29 So they ate and were well filled, * for he gave them what they craved.30 But they did not stop their craving, though the food was still in their mouths.31 So God's anger mounted against them; he slew their strongest men and laid low the youth of Israel.32 In spite of all this, they went on sinning * and had no faith in his wonderful works.33 So he brought their days to an end like a breath * and their years in sudden terror.34 Whenever he slew them, they would seek him, * and repent, and diligently search for God.35 They would remember that God was their rock, * and the Most High God their redeemer.36 But they flattered him with their mouths * and lied to him with their tongues.37 Their heart was not steadfast toward him, and they were not faithful to his covenant.38 But he was so merciful that he forgave their sinsand did not destroy them; many times he held back his anger and did not permit his wrath to be roused.39 For he remembered that they were but flesh, a breath that goes forth and does not return. =Quoties exacerbaverunt=40 How often the people disobeyed him in the wilderness and offended him in the desert!41 Again and again they tempted God * and provoked the Holy One of Israel.42 They did not remember his power in the day when he ransomed them from the enemy;43 How he wrought his signs in Egypt and his omens in the field of Zoan.44 He turned their rivers into blood, * so that they could not drink of their streams.45 He sent swarms of flies among them, which ate them up, * and frogs, which destroyed them.46 He gave their crops to the caterpillar, * the fruit of their toil to the locust.47 He killed their vines with hail * and their sycamores with frost.48 He delivered their cattle to hailstones and their livestock to hot thunderbolts.49 He poured out upon them his blazing anger: * fury, indignation, and distress, a troop of destroying angels.50 He gave full rein to his anger;he did not spare their souls from death; but delivered their lives to the plague.51 He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt, * the flower of manhood in the dwellings of Ham.52 He led out his people like sheep and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.53 He led them to safety, and they were not afraid; but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.54 He brought them to his holy land, the mountain his right hand had won.55 He drove out the Canaanites before themand apportioned an inheritance to them by lot; he made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.56 But they tested the Most High God, and defied him, and did not keep his commandments.57 They turned away and were disloyal like their fathers; they were undependable like a warped bow.58 The grieved him with their hill-altars * they provoked his displeasure with their idols.59 When God heard this, he was angry * and utterly rejected Israel.60 He forsook the shrine at Shiloh, the tabernacle where he had lived among his people.61 He delivered the ark into captivity, his glory into the adversary's hand.62 He gave his people to the sword and was angered against his inheritance.63 The fire consumed their young men; there were no wedding songs for their maidens.64 Their priests fell by the sword, * and their widows made no lamentation.65 Then the LORD woke as though from sleep, * like a warrior refreshed with wine.66 He struck his enemies on the backside * and put them to perpetual shame.67 He rejected the tent of Joseph and did not choose the tribe of Ephraim;68 He chose instead the tribe of Judah and Mount Zion, which he loved.69 He built his sanctuary like the heights of heaven, * like the earth which he founded for ever.70 He chose David his servant, * and took him away from the sheepfolds.71 He brought him from following the ewes, * to be a shepherd over Jacob his people and over Israel his inheritance.72 So he shepherded them with a faithful and true heart and guided them with the skillfulness of his hands.Sixteenth Day: Morning Prayer =Deus, venerunt=1 O God, the heathen have come into your inheritance;they have profaned your holy temple; they have made Jerusalem a heap of rubble.2 They have given the bodies of your servants as food for the/birds of the air, * and the flesh of your faithful ones to the beasts/of the field.3 They have shed their blood like water on every side/of Jerusalem, * and there was no one to bury them.4 We have become a reproach to our neighbors, * an object of scorn and derision to those around us.5 How long will you be angry, O LORD? * will your fury blaze like fire for ever?6 Pour out your wrath upon the heathen who have not/known you * and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon/your Name.7 For they have devoured Jacob and made his dwelling a ruin.8 Remember not our past sins;let your compassion be swift to meet us; * for we have been brought very low.9 Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your Name; * deliver us and forgive us our sins, for your Name's sake.10 Why should the heathen say, "Where is their God?" Let it be known among the heathen and in our sight that you avenge the shedding of your servants' blood.11 Let the sorrowful sighing of the prisoners come before you, * and by your great might spare those who are/condemned to die.12 May the revilings with which they reviled you, O Lord, return seven-fold into their bosoms.13 For we are your people and the sheep of your pasture; * we will give you thanks for ever and show forth your praise from age to age. =Qui regis Israel=1 Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, leading Joseph like a flock; shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim.2 In the presence of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, stir up your strength and come to help us.3 Restore us, O God of hosts; show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.4 O LORD God of hosts, how long will you be angered despite the prayers of your people?5 You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have given them bowls of tears to drink.6 You have made us the derision of our neighbors, and our enemies laugh us to scorn.7 Restore us, O God of hosts; * show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.8 You have brought a vine out of Egypt; * you cast out the nations and planted it.9 You prepared the ground for it; it took root and filled the land.10 The mountains were covered by its shadow * and the towering cedar trees by its boughs.11 You stretched out its tendrils to the Sea * and its branches to the River.12 Why have you broken down its wall, * so that all who pass by pluck off its grapes?13 The wild boar of the forest has ravaged it, and the beasts of the field have grazed upon it.14 Turn now, O God of hosts, look down from heaven;behold and tend this vine; * preserve what your right hand has planted.15 They burn it with fire like rubbish; at the rebuke of your countenance let them perish.16 Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, and son of man you have made so strong for yourself.17 And so will we never turn away from you; * give us life, that we may call upon your Name.18 Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; * show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved. =Exultate Deo=1 Sing with joy to God our strength and raise a loud shout to the God of Jacob.2 Raise a song and sound the timbrel, * the merry harp, and the lyre.3 Blow the ram's-horn at the new moon, * and at the full moon, the day of our feast.4 For this is a statute for Israel, * a law of the God of Jacob.5 He laid it as a solemn charge upon Joseph, * when he came out of the land of Egypt.6 I heard an unfamiliar voice saying, "I eased his shoulder from the burden; his hands were set free from bearing the load."7 You called on me in trouble, and I saved you; I answered you from the secret place of thunder and tested you at the waters of Meribah.8 Hear, O my people, and I will admonish you: O Israel, if you would but listen to me!9 There shall be no strange god among you; you shall not worship a foreign god.10 I am the LORD your God,who brought you out of the land of Egypt and said, * "Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it."11 And yet my people did not hear my voice, * and Israel would not obey me.12 So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their hearts, to follow their own devices.13 Oh, that my people would listen to me! that Israel would walk in my ways!14 I should soon subdue their enemies * and turn my hand against their foes.15 Those who hate the LORD would cringe before him, * and their punishment would last for ever.16 But Israel would I feed with the finest wheat * and satisfy him with honey from the rock.*Sixteenth Day: Evening Prayer =Deus stetit=1 God takes his stand in the council of heaven; he gives judgment in the midst of the gods:2 "How long will you judge unjustly, and show favor to the wicked?3 Save the weak and the orphan; * defend the humble and needy;4 Rescue the weak and the poor; * deliver them from the power of the wicked.5 They do not know, neither do they understand;they go about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.6 Now I say to you, 'You are gods, and all of you children of the Most High;7 Nevertheless, you shall die like mortals, * and fall like any prince.'"8 Arise, O God, and rule the earth, * for you shall take all nations for your own. =Deus, quis similis=1 O God, do not be silent; * do not keep still nor hold your peace, O God;2 For your enemies are in tumult, and those who hate you have lifted up their heads.3 They take secret counsel against your people and plot against those whom you protect4 They have said, "Come, let us wipe them out from among/the nations; * let the name of Israel be remembered no more."5 They have conspired together; * they have made an alliance against you:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; * the Moabites and the Hagarenes;7 Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines and those who dwell in Tyre.8 The Assyrians also have joined them, * and have come to help the people of Lot.9 Do to them as you did to Midian, to Sisera, and to Jabin at the river of kjv@Kishon:10 They were destroyed at Endor; they became like dung upon the ground.11 Make their leaders like Oreb and Zee%b, and all their commanders like Zebah and Zalmunna,12 Who said, "Let us take for ourselves the fields of God as our possession."13 O my God, make them like whirling dust and like chaff before the wind;14 Like fire that burns down a forest, like the flame that sets mountains ablaze.15 Drive them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm;16 Cover their faces with shame, O LORD, * that they may seek your Name.17 Let them be disgraced and terrified for ever; let them be put to confusion and perish.18 Let them know that you, whose Name is YAHWEH, you alone are the Most High over all the earth. =Quam dilecta!=1 How dear to me is your dwelling, O LORD of hosts! * My soul has a desire and longing for the courts of/the LORD; my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.2 The sparrow has found her a houseand the swallow a nest where she may lay her young; by the side of your altars, O LORD of hosts, my King and my God.3 Happy are they who dwell in your house! * they will always be praising you.4 Happy are the people whose strength is in you! whose hearts are set on the pilgrims' way.5 Those who go through the desolate valley will find/it a place of springs, for the early rains have covered it with pools of water.6 They will climb from height to height, and the God of gods will reveal himself in Zion.7 LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer; * hearken, O God of Jacob.8 Behold our defender, O God; and look upon the face of your Anointed.9 For one day in your courts is better than/a thousand in my own room, and to stand at the threshold of the house of my God than to dwell in the tents of the wicked.10 For the LORD God is both sun and shield; * he will give grace and glory;11 No good thing will the LORD withhold from those who walk with integrity.12 O LORD of hosts, happy are they who put their trust in you! =Benedixisti, Domine=1 You have been gracious to your land, O LORD, you have restored the good fortune of Jacob.2 You have forgiven the iniquity of your people * and blotted out all their sins.3 You have withdrawn all your fury and turned yourself from your wrathful indignation.4 Restore us then, O God our Savior; let your anger depart from us.5 Will you be displeased with us for ever? * will you prolong your anger from age to age?6 Will you not give us life again, * that your people may rejoice in you?7 Show us your mercy, O LORD, * and grant us your salvation.8 I will listen to what the LORD God is saying, * for he is speaking peace to his faithful people and to those who turn their hearts to him.9 Truly, his salvation is very near to those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.10 Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.11 Truth shall spring up from the earth, * and righteousness shall look down from heaven.12 The LORD will indeed grant prosperity, * and our land will yield its increase.13 Righteousness shall go before him, * and peace shall be a pathway for his feet.*Seventeenth Day: Morning Prayer =Inclina, Domine=1 Bow down your ear, O LORD, and answer me, * for I am poor and in misery.2 Keep watch over my life, for I am faithful; * save your servant who puts his trust in you.3 Be merciful to me, O LORD, for you are my God; I call upon you all the day long.4 Gladden the soul of your servant, * for to you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.5 For you, O LORD, are good and forgiving, * and great is your love toward all who call upon you.6 Give ear, O LORD, to my prayer, * and attend to the voice of my supplications.7 In the time of my trouble I will call upon you, * for you will answer me.8 Among the gods there is none like you, O LORD, * nor anything like your works.9 All the nations you have made will come and/worship you, O LORD, and glorify your Name.10 For you are great;you do wondrous things; * and you alone are God.11 Teach me your way, O LORD,and I will walk in your truth; knit my heart to you that I may fear your Name.12 I will thank you, O LORD my God, with all my heart, and glorify your Name for evermore.13 For great is your love toward me; * you have delivered me from the nethermost Pit.14 The arrogant rise up against me, O God,and a band of violent men seeks my life; they have not set you before their eyes.15 But you, O LORD, are gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and full of kindness and truth.16 Turn to me and have mercy upon me; * give your strength to your servant; and save the child of your handmaid.17 Show me a sign of your favor,so that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed; * because you, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me. =Fundamenta ejus=1 On the holy mountain stands the city he has founded; the LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.2 Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of our God.3 I count Egypt and Babylon among those who know me; behold Philistia, Tyre, and Ethiopia: in Zion were they born.4 Of Zion it shall be said, "Everyone was born in her, * and the Most High himself shall sustain her."5 The LORD will record as he enrolls the peoples, * "These also were born there."6 The singers and the dancers will say, "All my fresh springs are in you." =Domine, Deus=1 O LORD, my God, my Savior, * by day and night I cry to you.2 Let my prayer enter into your presence; * incline your ear to my lamentation.3 For I am full of trouble; * my life is at the brink of the grave.4 I am counted among those who go down to the Pit; * I have become like one who has no strength;5 Lost among the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave,6 Whom you remember no more, * for they are cut off from your hand.7 You have laid me in the depths of the Pit, * in dark places, and in the abyss.8 Your anger weighs upon me heavily, and all your great waves overwhelm me.9 You have put my friends far from me;you have made me to be abhorred by them; * I am in prison and cannot get free.10 My sight has failed me because of trouble; * LORD, I have called upon you daily; I have stretched out my hands to you.11 Do you work wonders for the dead? will those who have died stand up and give you thanks?12 Will your loving-kindness be declared in the grave? your faithfulness in the land of destruction?13 Will your wonders be known in the dark? * or your righteousness in the country where all/is forgotten?14 But as for me, O LORD, I cry to you for help; in the morning my prayer comes before you.15 LORD, why have you rejected me? why have you hidden your face from me?16 Ever since my youth, I have been wretched and at the/point of death; * I have borne your terrors with a troubled mind.17 Your blazing anger has swept over me; * your terrors have destroyed me;18 They surround me all day long like a flood; they encompass me on every side.19 My friend and my neighbor you have put away from me, * and darkness is my only companion.*Seventeenth Day: Evening Prayer =Misericordias Domini=1 Your love, O LORD, for ever will I sing; * from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.2 For I am persuaded that your love is established for ever; * you have set your faithfulness firmly in the heavens.3 "I have made a covenant with my chosen one; * I have sworn an oath to David my servant:4 'I will establish your line for ever, and preserve your throne for all generations.'"5 The heavens bear witness to your wonders, O LORD, and to your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones;6 For who in the skies can be compared to the LORD? who is like the LORD among the gods?7 God is much to be feared in the council of the holy ones, * great and terrible to all those round about him.8 Who is like you, LORD God of hosts? * O mighty LORD, your faithfulness is all around you.9 You rule the raging of the sea and still the surging of its waves.10 You have crushed Rahab of the deep with a deadly wound; * you have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.11 Yours are the heavens; the earth also is yours; * you laid the foundations of the world and all that is in it.12 You have made the north and the south; * Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your Name.13 You have a mighty arm; * strong is your hand and high is your right hand.14 Righteousness and justice are the foundations of your throne; love and truth go before your face.15 Happy are the people who know the festal shout! they walk, O LORD, in the light of your presence.16 They rejoice daily in your Name; they are jubilant in your righteousness.17 For you are the glory of their strength, and by your favor our might is exalted.18 Truly, the LORD is our ruler; * The Holy One of Israel is our King. =Tunc locutus es=19 You spoke once in vision and said to your faithful people: * "I have set the crown upon a warrior and have exalted one chosen out of the people.20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him.21 My hand will hold him fast * and my arm will make him strong.22 No enemy shall deceive him, * nor any wicked man bring him down.23 I will crush his foes before him * and strike down those who hate him.24 My faithfulness and love shall be with him, * and he shall be victorious through my Name.25 I shall make his dominion extend * from the Great Sea to the River.26 He will say to me, 'You are my Father, * my God, and the rock of my salvation.'27 I will make him my firstborn * and higher than the kings of the earth.28 I will keep my love for him for ever, * and my covenant will stand firm for him.29 I will establish his line for ever and his throne as the days of heaven."30 "If his children forsake my law * and do not walk according to my judgments;31 If they break my statutes * and do not keep my commandments;32 I will punish their transgressions with a rod * and their iniquities with the lash;33 But I will not take my love from him, nor let my faithfulness prove false.34 I will not break my covenant, * nor change what has gone out of my lips.35 Once for all I have sworn by my holiness: * 'I will not lie to David.36 His line shall endure for ever and his throne as the sun before me;37 It shall stand fast for evermore like the moon, * the abiding witness in the sky.'"38 But you have cast off and rejected your anointed; you have become enraged at him.39 You have broken your covenant with your servant, * defiled his crown, and hurled it to the ground.40 You have breached all his walls and laid his strongholds in ruins.41 All who pass by despoil him; he has become the scorn of his neighbors.42 You have exalted the right hand of his foes * and made all his enemies rejoice.43 You have turned back the edge of his sword and have not sustained him in battle.44 You have put an end to his splendor and cast his throne to the ground.45 You have cut short the days of his youth * and have covered him with shame.46 How long will you hide yourself, O LORD?will you hide yourself for ever? * how long will your anger burn like fire?47 Remember, LORD, how short life is, * how frail you have made all flesh.48 Who can live and not see death? * who can save himself from the power of the grave?49 Where, Lord, are your loving-kindnesses of old, * which you promised David in your faithfulness?50 Remember, Lord, how your servant is mocked, * how I carry in my bosom the taunts of many peoples,51 The taunts your enemies have hurled, O LORD, * which they hurled at the heels of your anointed.52 Blessed be the LORD for evermore! Amen, I say, Amen.Eighteenth Day: Morning Prayer =Domine, refugium=1 Lord, you have been our refuge * from one generation to another.2 Before the mountains were brought forth,or the land and the earth were born, from age to age you are God.3 You turn us back to the dust and say, * "Go back, O child of earth."4 For a thousand years in your sight are like yesterday/when it is past and like a watch in the night.5 You sweep us away like a dream; * we fade away suddenly like the grass.6 In the morning it is green and flourishes; * in the evening it is dried up and withered.7 For we consume away in your displeasure; we are afraid because of your wrathful indignation.8 Our iniquities you have set before you, and our secret sins in the light of your countenance.9 When you are angry, all our days are gone; * we bring our years to an end like a sigh.10 The span of our life is seventy years,perhaps in strength even eighty; yet the sum of them is but labor and sorrow, for they pass away quickly and we are gone.11 Who regards the power of your wrath? * who rightly fears your indignation?12 So teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.13 Return, O LORD; how long will you tarry? * be gracious to your servants.14 Satisfy us by your loving-kindness in the morning; so shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.15 Make us glad by the measure of the days that you afflicted us * and the years in which we suffered adversity.16 Show your servants your works and your splendor to their children.17 May the graciousness of the LORD our God be upon us; * prosper the work of our hands; prosper our handiwork. =Qui habitat=1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High, abides under the shadow of the Almighty.2 He shall say to the LORD,"You are my refuge and my stronghold, * my God in whom I put my trust."3 He shall deliver you from the snare of the hunter and from the deadly pestilence.4 He shall cover you with his pinions,and you shall find refuge under his wings; his faithfulness shall be a shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of any terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day;6 Of the plague that stalks in the darkness, nor of the sickness that lays waste at mid-day.7 A thousand shall fall at your sideand ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.8 Your eyes have only to behold to see the reward of the wicked.9 Because you have made the LORD your refuge, * and the Most High your habitation,10 There shall no evil happen to you, * neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.11 For he shall give his angels charge over you, * to keep you in all your ways.12 They shall bear you in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.13 You shall tread upon the lion and the adder; * you shall trample the young lion and the serpent/under your feet.14 Because he is bound to me in love,therefore will I deliver him; * I will protect him, because he knows my Name.15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him; * I am with him in trouble; I will rescue him and bring him to honor.16 With long life will I satisfy him, * and show him my salvation. =Bonum est confiteri=1 It is a good thing to give thanks to the LORD, * and to sing praises to your Name, O Most High;2 To tell of your loving-kindness early in the morning * and of your faithfulness in the night season;3 On the psaltery, and on the lyre, * and to the melody of the harp.4 For you have made me glad by your acts, O LORD; and I shout for joy because of the works of your hands.5 LORD, how great are your works! * your thoughts are very deep.6 The dullard does not know,nor does the fool understand, that though the wicked grow like weeds, and all the workers of iniquity flourish,7 They flourish only to be destroyed for ever; but you, O LORD, are exalted for evermore.8 For lo, your enemies, O LORD,lo, your enemies shall perish, and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.9 But my horn you have exalted like the horns of wild bulls; I am anointed with fresh oil.10 My eyes also gloat over my enemies, * and my ears rejoice to hear the doom of the wicked who/rise up against me.11 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, * and shall spread abroad like a cedar of Lebanon.12 Those who are planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God;13 They shall still bear fruit in old age; * they shall be green and succulent;14 That they may show how upright the LORD is, * my Rock, in whom there is no fault.Eighteenth Day: Evening Prayer =Dominus regnavit=1 The LORD is King;he has put on splendid apparel; the LORD has put on his apparel and girded himself with strength.2 He has made the whole world so sure that it cannot be moved;3 Ever since the world began, your throne has been established; * you are from everlasting.4 The waters have lifted up, O LORD,the waters have lifted up their voice; the waters have lifted up their pounding waves.5 Mightier than the sound of many waters,mightier than the breakers of the sea, * mightier is the LORD who dwells on high.6 Your testimonies are very sure, and holiness adorns your house, O LORD, for ever and for evermore. =Deus ultio1 O LORD God of vengeance, * O God of vengeance, show yourself.2 Rise up, O Judge of the world; give the arrogant their just deserts.3 How long shall the wicked, O LORD, how long shall the wicked triumph?4 They bluster in their insolence; all evildoers are full of boasting.5 They crush your people, O LORD, * and afflict your chosen nation.6 They murder the widow and the stranger * and put the orphans to death.7 Yet they say, "The LORD does not see, the God of Jacob takes no notice."8 Consider well, you dullards among the people; when will you fools understand?9 He that planted the ear, does he not hear? * he that formed the eye, does he not see?10 He who admonishes the nations, will he not punish? he who teaches all the world, has he no knowledge?11 The LORD knows our human thoughts; how like a puff of wind they are.12 Happy are they whom you instruct, O Lord! whom you teach out of your law;13 To give them rest in evil days, until a pit is dug for the wicked.14 For the LORD will not abandon his people, * nor will he forsake his own.15 For judgment will again be just, * and all the true of heart will follow it.16 Who rose up for me against the wicked? * who took my part against the evildoers?17 If the LORD had not come to my help, I should soon have dwelt in the land of silence.18 As often as I said, "My foot has slipped," your love, O LORD, upheld me.19 When many cares fill my mind, * your consolations cheer my soul.20 Can a corrupt tribunal have any part with you, * one which frames evil into law?21 They conspire against the life of the just * and condemn the innocent to death.22 But the LORD has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my trust.23 He will turn their wickedness back upon themand destroy them in their own malice; the LORD our God will destroy them.*Nineteenth Day: Morning Prayer =Venite, exultemus=1 Come, let us sing to the LORD; let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving * and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.3 For the LORD is a great God, * and a great King above all gods.4 In his hand are the caverns of the earth, * and the heights of the hills are his also.5 The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands have molded the dry land.6 Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, and kneel before the LORD our Maker.7 For he is our God,and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. * Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!8 Harden not your hearts,as your forebears did in the wilderness, * at Meribah, and on that day at Massah, when they tempted me.9 They put me to the test, * though they had seen my works.10 Forty years long I detested that generation and said, "This people are wayward in their hearts; they do not know my ways."11 So I swore in my wrath, * "They shall not enter into my rest." =Cantate Domino=1 Sing to the LORD a new song; * sing to the LORD, all the whole earth.2 Sing to the LORD and bless his Name; proclaim the good news of his salvation from day to day.3 Declare his glory among the nations and his wonders among all peoples.4 For great is the LORD and greatly to be praised; * he is more to be feared than all gods.5 As for all the gods of the nations, they are but idols; but it is the LORD who made the heavens.6 Oh, the majesty and magnificence of his presence!

* Bow down before him, all you gods.8 Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice, because of your judgments, O LORD.9 For you are the LORD,most high over all the earth; * you are exalted far above all gods.10 The LORD loves those who hate evil; he preserves the lives of his saints and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.11 Light has sprung up for the righteous, * and joyful gladness for those who are truehearted.12 Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, * and give thanks to his holy Name.*Nineteenth Day: Evening Prayer =Cantate Domino=1 Sing to the LORD a new song, * for he has done marvelous things.2 With his right hand and his holy arm * has he won for himself the victory.3 The LORD has made known his victory; his righteousness has he openly shown in/the sight of the nations.4 He remembers his mercy and faithfulness to/the house of Israel, and all the ends of the earth have seen the/victory of our God.5 Shout with joy to the LORD, all you lands; lift up your voice, rejoice, and sing.6 Sing to the LORD with the harp, * with the harp and the voice of song.7 With trumpets and the sound of the horn * shout with joy before the King, the LORD.8 Let the sea make a noise and all that is in it, * the lands and those who dwell therein.9 Let the rivers clap their hands, * and let the hills ring out with joy before the LORD, when he comes to judge the earth.10 In righteousness shall he judge the world and the peoples with equity. =Dominus regnavit=1 The LORD is King;let the people tremble; * he is enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth shake.2 The LORD is great in Zion; * he is high above all peoples.3 Let them confess his Name, which is great and awesome; * he is the Holy One.4 "O mighty King, lover of justice,you have established equity; * you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob."5 Proclaim the greatness of the LORD our Godand fall down before his footstool; he is the Holy One.6 Moses and Aaron among his priests,and Samuel among those who call upon his Name, they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.7 He spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud; * they kept his testimonies and the decree that he gave them.8 "O LORD our God, you answered them indeed; * you were a God who forgave them, yet punished them for their evil deeds."9 Proclaim the greatness of the LORD our Godand worship him upon his holy hill; * for the LORD our God is the Holy One. =Jubilate Deo=1 Be joyful in the LORD, all you lands; * serve the LORD with gladness and come before his presence with a song.2 Know this: The LORD himself is God; * he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.3 Enter his gates with thanksgiving;go into his courts with praise; * give thanks to him and call upon his Name.4 For the LORD is good;his mercy is everlasting; and his faithfulness endures from age to age.93 I will never forget your commandments, because by them you give me life.94 I am yours; oh, that you would save me!

of one substance(homoousios) with the Father as regards his Godhead, and at the sametime of one substance with us as regards his manhood; like us in allrespects, apart from sin; as regards his Godhead, begotten of the Fatherbefore the ages, but yet as regards his manhood begotten, for us men andfor our salvation, of Mary the Virgin, the God-bearer (Theotokos); oneand the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, recognized in twonatures, without confusion, without change, without division, withoutseparation; the distinction of natures being in no way annulled by theunion, but rather the characteristics of each nature being preserved andcoming together to form one person and subsistence, not as parted orseparated into two persons, but one and the same Son and Only-begottenGod the Word, Lord Jesus Christ; even as the prophets from earliesttimes spoke of him, and our Lord Jesus Christ himself taught us, and thecreed of the Fathers has handed down to us.=commonly called=Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he holdthe Catholic Faith.Which Faith except everyone do keep whole and undefiled, without doubthe shall perish everlastingly.And the Catholic Faith is this: That we worship one God in Trinity, andTrinity in Unity, neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing theSubstance.For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and anotherof the Holy Ghost.But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, isall one, the Glory equal, the Majesty co-eternal.Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost.The Father uncreate, the Son uncreate, and the Holy Ghost uncreate.The Father incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible, and the HolyGhost incomprehensible.The Father eternal, the Son eternal, and the Holy Ghost eternal.And yet they are not three eternals, but one eternal.As also there are not three incomprehensibles, nor three uncreated, butone uncreated, and one incomprehensible.So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty, and the HolyGhost Almighty.And yet they are not three Almighties, but one Almighty.So the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God.And yet they are not three Gods, but one God.So likewise the Father is Lord, the Son Lord, and the Holy Ghost Lord.And yet not three Lords, but one Lord.For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity to acknowledgeevery Person by himself to be both God and Lord,So are we forbidden by the Catholic Religion, to say, There be threeGods, or three Lords.The Father is made of none, neither created, nor begotten.The Son is of the Father alone, not made, nor created, but begotten.The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son, neither made, norcreated, nor begotten, but proceeding.So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; oneHoly Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts.And in this Trinity none is afore, or after other; none is greater, orless than another;But the whole three Persons are co-eternal together and co-equal.So that in all things, as is aforesaid, the Unity in Trinity and theTrinity in Unity is to be worshipped.He therefore that will be saved is must think thus of the Trinity.Furthermore, it is necessary to everlasting salvation that he alsobelieve rightly the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.For the right Faith is, that we believe and confess, that our LordJesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man;God, of the substance of the Father, begotten before the worlds; andMan of the substance of his Mother, born in the world;Perfect God and perfect Man, of a reasonable soul and human fleshsubsisting.Equal to the Father, as touching his Godhead; and inferior to theFather, as touching his manhood;Who, although he be God and Man, yet he is not two, but one Christ;One, not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh but by taking of theManhood into God;One altogether; not by confusion of Substance, but by unity of Person.For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man, so God and Man is oneChrist;Who suffered for our salvation, descended into hell, rose again thethird day from the dead.He ascended into heaven, he sitteth at the right hand of the Father,God Almighty, from whence he will come to judge the quick and the dead.At whose coming all men will rise again with their bodies and shallgive account for their own works.And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting; and theythat have done evil into everlasting fire.This is the Catholic Faith, which except a man believe faithfully, hecannot be saved.There was never any thing by the wit of man so well devised, or so sureestablished, which in continuance of time hath not been corrupted: as,among other things, it may plainly appear by the common prayers in theChurch, commonly called Divine Service: the first original and groundwhereof, if a man would search out by the ancient fathers, he shallfind, that the same was not ordained, but of a good purpose, and for agreat advancement of godliness: For they so ordered the matter, that allthe whole Bible (or the greatest part thereof) should be read over oncein the year, intending thereby, that the Clergy, and especially such aswere Ministers of the congregation, should (by often reading, andmeditation of God's word) be stirred up to godliness themselves, and bemore able to exhort others by wholesome doctrine, and to confute themthat were adversaries to the truth. And further, that the people (bydaily hearing of holy Scripture read in the Church) should continuallyprofit more and more in the knowledge of God, and be the more inflamedwith the love of his true religion.But these many years passed, this godly and decent order of the ancientfathers hath been so altered, broken, and neglected, by planting inuncertain stories, Legends, Responds, Verses, vain repetitions,Commemorations, and Synodals, that commonly when any book of the Biblewas begun, before three or four Chapters were read out, all the restwere unread. And in this sort the book of Isaiah was begun in Advent,and the book of Genesis in Septuagesima; but they were only begun, andnever read through. After a like sort were other books of holyScripture used. And moreover, whereas St. Paul would have such languagespoken to the people in the Church, as they might understand, and haveprofit by hearing the same, the Service in the Church of England (thesemany years) hath been read in Latin to the people, which they understoodnot; so that they have heard with their ears only; and their hearts,spirit, and mind, have not been edified thereby. And furthermore,notwithstanding that the ancient fathers had divided the Psalms intoseven portions, whereof every one was called a nocturn, now of late timea few of them have been daily said (and oft repeated), and the restutterly omitted. Moreover, the number and hardness of the Rules calledthe Pie, and the manifold changings of the service, was the cause, thatto turn the Book only, was so hard and intricate a matter, that manytimes, there was more business to find out what should be read, than toread it when it was found out.These inconveniences therefore considered, here is set forth such anorder, whereby the same shall be redressed. And for a readiness in thismatter, here is drawn out a Kalendar for that purpose, which is plainand easy to be understood, wherein (so much as may be) the reading ofholy Scripture is so set forth, that all things shall be done in order,without breaking one piece thereof from another. For this cause be cutoff Anthems, Responds, Invitatories, and such like things, as did breakthe continual course of the reading of the Scripture.Yet because there is no remedy, but that of necessity there must be somerules: therefore certain rules are here set forth, which, as they be fewin number; so they be plain and easy to be understood. So that here youhave an order for prayer (as touching the reading of the holyScripture), much agreeable to the mind and purpose of the old fathers,and a great deal more profitable and commodious, than that which of latewas used. It is more profitable, because here are left out many things,whereof some be untrue, some uncertain, same vainand superstitious: and is ordained nothing to be read, but the very pureword of God, the holy Scriptures, or that which is evidently groundedupon the same; and that in such a language and order as is most easy andplain for the understanding, both of the readers and hearers. It isalso more commodious, both for the shortness thereof, and for theplainness of the order, and for that the rules be few and easy.Furthermore, by this order the curates shall need none other books fortheir public service, but this book and the Bible: by the means whereof,the people shall not be at so great charge for books, as in time pastthey have been.And where heretofore, there hath been great diversity in saying andsinging in churches within this realm: some following Salisbury use,some Hereford use, some the use of Bangor, some of York, and some ofLincoln: now from henceforth, all the whole realm shall have but oneuse. And if any would judge this way more painful, because that allthings must be read upon the book, whereas before, by reason of so oftenrepetition, they could say many things by heart: if those men will weightheir labor with the profit in knowledge, which daily they shall obtainby reading upon the book, they will not refuse the pain, inconsideration of the great profit that shall ensue thereof.And forasmuch as nothing else, almost, be so plainly set forth, butdoubts may arise in the use and practicing of the same: to appease allsuch diversity (if any arise), and for the resolution of all doubts,concerning the manner how to understand, do, and execute, the thingscontained in this book: the parties that so doubt, or diversely take anything, shall always resort to the Bishop of the Diocese, who by hisdiscretion shall take order for the quieting and appeasing of the same;so that the same order be not contrary to any thing contained in thisbook.Though it be appointed in the afore written preface, that all thingsshall be read and sung in the church in the English tongue, to the endthat the congregation may be thereby edified: yet it is not meant, butwhen men say Matins and Evensong privately, they may say the same in anylanguage that they themselves do understand. Neither that any man shallbe bound to the saying of them, but such as from time to time, inCathedral and Collegiate Churches, parish Churches, and Chapels to thesame annexed, shall serve the congregation.As established by the Bishops, the Clergy, and the Laity of theProtestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, inConvention, on the twelfth day of September, in the Year of our Lord,1801.There is but one living and true God, everlasting, without body, parts,or passions; of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness; the Maker, andPreserver of all things both visible and invisible. And in the unity ofthis Godhead there be three Persons, of one substance, power, andeternity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.The Son, which is the Word of the Father, begotten from everlasting ofthe Father, the very and eternal God, and of one substance with theFather, took Man's nature in the womb of the blessed Virgin, of hersubstance: so that two whole and perfect Natures, that is to say, theGodhead and Manhood, were joined together in one Person, never to bedivided, whereof is one Christ, very God, and very Man; who trulysuffered, was crucified, dead, and buried, to reconcile his Father tous, and to be a sacrifice, not only for original guilt, but also foractual sins of men.As Christ died for us, and was buried; so also it is to be believed,that he went down into Hell.Christ did truly rise again from death, and took again his body, withflesh, bones, and all things appertaining to the perfection of Man'snature; wherewith he ascended into Heaven, and there sitteth, until hereturn to judge all Men at the last day.The Holy Ghost, proceeding from the Father and the Son, is of onesubstance, majesty, and glory, with the Father and the Son, very andeternal God.Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation: so thatwhatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to berequired of any man, that it should be believed as an article of theFaith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation. In the nameof the Holy Scripture we do understand those canonical Books of the Oldand New Testament, of whose authority was never any doubt in the Church. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Ruth, The First Book of Samuel, The Second Book of Samuel, The First Book of Kings, The Second Book of Kings, The First Book of Chronicles, The Second Book of Chronicles, The First Book of Esdras, The Second Book of Esdras, The Book of Esther, The Book of Job, The Psalms, The Proverbs, Ecclesiastes or Preacher, Cantica, or Songs of Solomon, Four Prophets the greater, Twelve Prophets the less.And the other Books (as Hierome saith) the Church doth read for exampleof life and instruction of manners; but yet doth it not apply them toestablish any doctrine; such are these following: The Third Book of Esdras, The Fourth Book of Esdras, The Book of Tobias, The Book of Judith, The rest of the Book of Esther, The Book of Wisdom, Jesus the Son of Sirach, Baruch the Prophet, The Song of the Three Children, The Story of Susanna, Of Bel and the Dragon, The Prayer of Manasses, The First Book of Maccabees, The Second Book of Maccabees. All the Books of the New Testament, as they are commonly received, wedo receive, and account them Canonical.The Old Testament is not contrary to the New: for both in the Old andNew Testament everlasting life is offered to Mankind by Christ, who isthe only Mediator between God and Man, being both God and Man.Wherefore they are not to be heard, which feign that the old Fathers didlook only for transitory promises. Although the Law given from God byMoses, as touching Ceremonies and Rites, do not bind Christian men, northe Civil precepts thereof ought of necessity to be received in anycommonwealth; yet notwithstanding, no Christian man whatsoever is freefrom the obedience of the Commandments which are called Moral.The Nicene Creed, and that which is commonly called the Apostles' Creed,ought thoroughly to be received and believed: for they may be proved bymost certain warrants of Holy Scripture.The original Article given Royal assent in 1571 and reaffirmed in 1662,was entitled, "Of the Three Creeds; and began as follows, "The ThreeCreeds, Nicene Creed, Athanasius's Creed, and that which is commonlycalled the Apostles' Creed..."Original sin standeth not in the following of Adam, (as the Pelagians dovainly talk;) but it is the fault and corruption of the Nature of everyman, that naturally is engendered of the offspring of Adam; whereby manis very far gone from original righteousness, and is of his own natureinclined to evil, so that the flesh lusteth always contrary to theSpirit; and therefore in every person born into this world, it deservethGod's wrath and damnation. And this infection of nature doth remain,yea in them that are regenerated; whereby the lust of the flesh, calledin Greek, fro/nhma sarko/s, (which some do expound the wisdom, somesensuality, some the affection, some the desire, of the flesh), is notsubject to the Law of God. And although there is no condemnation forthem that believe and are baptized; yet the Apostle doth confess, thatconcupiscence and lust hath of itself the nature of sin.The condition of Man after the fall of Adam is such, that he cannot turnand prepare himself, by his own natural strength and good works, tofaith, and calling upon God. Wherefore we have no power to do goodworks pleasant and acceptable to God, without the grace of God by Christpreventing us, that we may have a good will, and working with us, whenwe have that good will.We are accounted righteous before God, only for the merit of our Lordand Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not for our own works ordeservings. Wherefore, that we are justified by Faith only, is a mostwholesome Doctrine, and very full of comfort, as more largely expressedin the Homily of Justification.Albeit that Good Works, which are the fruits of Faith, and follow afterJustification, cannot put away our sins, and endure the severity ofGod's judgment; yet are they pleasing and acceptable to God in Christ,and do spring out necessarily of a true and lively Faith; insomuch thatby them a lively Faith may be as evidently known as a tree discerned bythe fruit.Works done before the grace of Christ, and the Inspiration of theSpirit, are not pleasant to God, forasmuch as they spring not of faithin Jesus Christ; neither do they make men meet to receive grace, or (asthe School-authors say) deserve grace of congruity: yea rather, for thatthey are not done as God hath willed and commanded them to be done, wedoubt not but they have the nature of sin.Voluntary Works besides, over and above, God's Commandments, which theycall Works of Supererogation, cannot be taught without arrogancy andimpiety: for by them men do declare, that they not only render unto Godas much as they are bound to, but that they do more for his sake, thanof bounden duty is required: whereas Christ saith plainly, When ye havedone all that are commanded to you, say, We are unprofitable servants.Christ in the truth of our nature was made like unto us in all things,sin only except, from which he was clearly void, both in his flesh, andin his spirit. He came to be the Lamb without spot, who, by sacrificeof 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, althoughbaptized, and born again in Christ, yet offend in many things; and if wesay we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.Not every deadly sin willingly committed after Baptism is sin againstthe Holy Ghost, and unpardonable. Wherefore the grant of repentance isnot be denied to such as fall into sin after Baptism. After we havereceived the Holy Ghost, we may depart from grace given, and fall intosin, and by the grace of God we may arise again, and amend our lives.And therefore they are to be condemned, which say, they can no more sinas long as they live here, or deny the place of forgiveness to such astruly repent.Predestination to Life is the everlasting purpose of God, whereby(before the foundations of the world were laid) he hath constantlydecreed by his counsel secret to us, to deliver from curse and damnationthose whom he hath chosen in Christ out of mankind, and to bring them byChrist to everlasting salvation, as vessels made to honour. Wherefore,they which be endued with so excellent a benefit of God, be calledaccording to God's purpose by his Spirit working in due season: theythrough Grace obey the calling: they be justified freely: they be madesons of God by adoption: they be made like the image of his only-begotten Son Jesus Christ: they walk religiously in good works, and atlength, by God's mercy, they attain to everlasting felicity.As the godly consideration of Predestination, and our Election inChrist, is full of sweet, pleasant, and unspeakable comfort to godlypersons, and such as feel in themselves the working of the Spirit ofChrist, mortifying the works of the flesh, and their earthly members,and drawing up their mind to high and heavenly things, as well becauseit doth greatly establish and confirm their faith of eternal Salvationto be enjoyed through Christ, as because it doth fervently kindle theirlove towards God: So, for curious and carnal persons, lacking the Spiritof Christ, to have continually before their eyes the sentence of God'sPredestination, is a most dangerous downfall, whereby the Devil doththrust them either into desperation, or into wrethchlessness of mostunclean living, no less perilous than desperation.Furthermore, we must receive God's promises in such wise, as they begenerally set forth to us in Holy Scripture: and, in our doings, thatWill of God is to be followed, which we have expressly declared unto usin the word of God.They also are to be had accursed that presume to say, That every manshall be saved by the Law or Sect which he professeth, so that he bediligent to frame his life according to that Law, and the light ofNature. For Holy Scripture doth set out unto us only the Name of JesusChrist, whereby men must be saved.The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in whichthe pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministeredaccording to Christ's ordinance, in all those things that of necessityare requisite to the same.As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred; so alsothe Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner ofCeremonies, but also in matters of Faith.The Church hath power to decree Rites or Ceremonies, and authority inControversies of Faith: and yet it is not lawful for the Church toordain anything that is contrary to God's Word written, neither may itso expound one place of Scripture, that it be repugnant to another.Wherefore, although the Church be a witness and a keeper of Holy Writ,yet, as it ought not to decree any thing against the same, so besidesthe same ought not to enforce any thing to be believed for necessity ofSalvation.[The Twenty-first of the former Articles is omitted; because it ispartly of a local and civil nature, and is provided for, as to theremaining parts of it, in other Articles.]=The original 1571, 1662 text of this Article, omitted in the version of1801, reads as follows: "General Councils may not be gathered togetherwithout the commandment and will of Princes. And when they be gatheredtogether, (forasmuch as they be an assembly of men, whereof all be notgoverned with the Spirit and Word of God,) they may err, and sometimeshave erred, even in things pertaining unto God. Wherefore thingsordained by them as necessary to salvation have neither strength norauthority, unless it may be declared that they be taken out of holyScripture."=The Romish Doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, Worshipping andAdoration, as well of Images as of Relics, and also Invocation ofSaints, is a fond thing, vainly invented, and grounded upon no warrantyof Scripture, but rather repugnant to the Word of God.It is not lawful for any man to take upon him the office of publicpreaching, or ministering the Sacraments in the Congregation, before hebe lawfully called, and sent to execute the same. And those we ought tojudge lawfully called and sent, which be chosen and called to this workby men who have public authority given unto them in the Congregation, tocall and send Ministers into the Lord's vineyard.It is a thing plainly repugnant to the Word of God, and the custom ofthe Primitive Church, to have public Prayer in the Church, or tominister the Sacraments, in a tongue not understanded of the people.Sacraments ordained of Christ be not only badges or tokens of Christianmen's profession, but rather they be certain sure witnesses, andeffectual signs of grace, and God's good will towards us, by the whichhe doth work invisibly in us, and doth not only quicken, but alsostrengthen and confirm our Faith in him.There are two Sacraments ordained of Christ our Lord in the Gospel, thatis to say, Baptism, and the Supper of the Lord.Those five commonly called Sacraments, that is to say, Confirmation,Penance, Orders, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction, are not to be countedfor Sacraments of the Gospel, being such as have grown partly of thecorrupt following of the Apostles, partly are states of life allowed inthe Scriptures; but yet have not like nature of Sacraments with Baptism,and the Lord's Supper, for that they have not any visible sign orceremony ordained of God.The Sacraments are not ordained of Christ to be gazed upon, or to becarried about, but that we should duly use them. And in such only asworthily receive the same, they have a wholesome effect or operation:butthey that receive them unworthily, purchase to themselves damnation, asSaint Paul saith.Although in the visible Church the evil be ever mingled with the good,and sometimes the evil have chief authority in the Ministration of theWord and Sacraments, yet forasmuch as they do not the same in their ownname, but in Christ's, and do minister by his commission and authority,we may use their Ministry, both in hearing the Word of God, and inreceiving the Sacraments. Neither is the effect of Christ's ordinancetaken away by their wickedness, nor the grace of God's gifts diminishedfrom such as by faith, and rightly, do receive the Sacraments ministeredunto them; which be effectual, because of Christ's institution andpromise, although they be ministered by evil men.Nevertheless, it appertaineth to the discipline of the Church, thatinquiry be made of evil Ministers, and that they be accused by thosethat have knowledge of their offences; and finally, being found guilty,by just judgment be deposed.Baptism is not only a sign of profession, and mark of difference,whereby Christian men are discerned from others that be not christened,but it is also a sign of Regeneration or New-Birth, whereby, as by aninstrument, they that receive Baptism rightly are grafted into theChurch; the promises of the forgiveness of sin, and of our adoption tobe the sons of God by the Holy Ghost, are visibly signed and sealed;Faith is confirmed, and Grace increased by virtue of prayer unto God.The Baptism of young Children is in any wise to be retained in theChurch, as most agreeable with the institution of Christ.The Supper of the Lord is not only a sign of the love that Christiansought to have among themselves one to another; but rather it is aSacrament of our Redemption by Christ's death: insomuch that to such asrightly, worthily, and with faith, receive the same, the Bread which webreak is a partaking of the Body of Christ; and likewise the Cup ofBlessing is a partaking of the Blood of Christ.Transubstantiation (or the change of the substance of Bread and Wine) inthe Supper of the Lord, cannot be proved by Holy Writ; but is repugnantto the plain words of Scripture, overthroweth the nature of a Sacrament,and hath given occasion to many superstitions.The Body of Christ is given, taken, and eaten, in the Supper, only afteran heavenly and spiritual manner. And the mean whereby the Body ofChrist is received and eaten in the Supper, is Faith.The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper was not by Christ's ordinancereserved, carried about, lifted up, or worshipped.The Wicked, and such as be void of a lively faith, although theydocarnally and visibly press with their teeth (as Saint Augustine saith)the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ; yet in no wise are theypartakers of Christ: but rather, to their condemnation, do eat and drinkthe sign or Sacrament of so great a thing.The Cup of the Lord is not to be denied to the Lay-people: for both theparts of the Lord's Sacrament, by Christ's ordinance and commandment,ought to be ministered to all Christian men alike.The Offering of Christ once made in that perfect redemption,propitiation, and satisfaction, for all the sins of the whole world,both original and actual; and there is none other satisfaction for sin,but that alone. Wherefore the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it wascommonly said, that the Priest did offer Christ for the quick and thedead, to have remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables, anddangerous deceits.Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, are not commanded by God's Law, either tovow the estate of single life, or to abstain from marriage: therefore itis lawful for them, as for all other Christian men, to marry at theirown discretion, as they shall judge the same to serve better togodliness.That person which by open denunciation of the Church is rightly cut offfrom the unity of the Church, and excommunicated, ought to be taken ofthe whole multitude of the faithful, as an Heathen and Publican, untilhe be openly reconciled by penance, and received into the Church by aJudge that hath the authority thereunto.It is not necessary that the Traditions and Ceremonies be in all placesone, or utterly like; for at all times they have been divers, and may bechanged according to the diversity of countries, times, and men'smanners, so that nothing be ordained against God's Word. Whosoever,through his private judgment, willingly and purposely, doth openly breakthe Traditions and Ceremonies of the Church, which be not repugnant tothe Word of God, and be ordained and approved by common authority, oughtto be rebuked openly, (that others may fear to do the like,) as he thatoffendeth against the common order of the Church, and hurteth theauthority of the Magistrate, and woundeth the consciences of the weakbrethren.Every particular or national Church hath authority to ordain, change,and abolish, Ceremonies or Rites of the Church ordained only by man'sauthority, so that all things be done to edifying.The Second Book of Homilies, the several titles whereof we have joinedunder this Article, doth contain a godly and wholesome Doctrine, andnecessary for these times, as doth the former Book of Homilies, whichwere set forth in the time of Edward the Sixth; and therefore we judgethem to be read in Churches by the Ministers, diligently and distinctly,that they may be understanded of the people. 1 Of the right Use of the Church. 2 Against Peril of Idolatry. 3 Of repairing and keeping clean of Churches. 4 Of good kjv@Works: first of Fasting. 5 Against Gluttony and Drunkenness. 6 Against Excess of Apparel. 7 Of Prayer. 8 Of the Place and Time of Prayer. 9 That Common Prayers and Sacraments ought to be ministered in aknown tongue. 10 Of the reverend Estimation of God's Word. 11 Of Alms-doing. 12 Of the Nativity of Christ. 13 Of the Passion of Christ. 14 Of the Resurrection of Christ. 15 Of the worthy receiving of the Sacrament of the Body and Blood ofChrist. 16 Of the Gifts of the Holy Ghost. 17 For the Rogation-days 18 Of the State of Matrimony. 19 Of Repentance. 20 Against Idleness. 21 Against Rebellion.[This Article is received in this Church, so far as it declares the Bookof Homilies to be an explication of Christian doctrine, and instructivein piety and morals. But all references to the constitution and laws ofEngland are considered as inapplicable to the circumstances of thisChurch; which also suspends the order for the reading of said Homiliesin churches, until a revision of them may be conveniently made, for theclearing of them, as well from obsolete words and phrases, as from thelocal references.]The Book of Consecration of Bishops, and Ordering of Priests andDeacons, as set forth by the General Convention of this Church in 1792,doth contain all things necessary to such Consecration and Ordering;neither hath it any thing that, of itself, is superstitious and ungodly.And, therefore, whosoever are consecrated or ordered according to saidForm, we decree all such to be rightly, orderly, and lawfullyconsecrated and ordered.=The original 1571, 1662 text of this Article reads as follows: "TheBook of Consecration of Archbishops and Bishops, and Ordering of Priestsand Deacons, lately set forth in the time of Edward the Sixth, andconfirmed at the same time by authority of Parliament, doth contain allthings necessary to such Consecration and Ordering; neither hath it anything, that of itself is superstitious and ungodly. And thereforewhosoever are consecrated or ordered according to the Rites of thatBook, since the second year of the forenamed King Edwand unto this time,or hereafter shall be consecrated or ordered according to the sameRites; we decree all such to be rightly, orderly, and lawfullyconsecrated and ordered."=The Power of the Civil Magistrate extendeth to all men, as well Clergyas Laity, in all things temporal; but hath no authority in things purelyspiritual. And we hold it to be the duty of all men who are professorsof the Gospel, to pay respectful obedience to the Civil Authority,regularly and legitimately constituted.=The original 1571, 1662 text of this Article reads as follows: "TheKing's Majesty hath the chief power in this Realm of England, and otherhis Dominions, unto whom the chief Government of all Estates of thisRealm, whether they be Ecclesiastical or Civil, in all causes dothappertain, and is not, nor ought to be, subject to any foreignJurisdiction. Where we attribute to the King's Majesty the chiefgovernment, by which Titles we understand the minds of some slanderousfolks to be offended; we give not our Princes theministering either of God's Word, or of the Sacraments, the which thingthe Injunctions also lately set forth by Elizabeth our Queen do mostplainly testify; but that only prerogative, which we see to have beengiven always to all godly Princes in holy Scriptures by God himself;that is, that they should rule all estates and degrees committed totheir charge by God, whether they be Ecclesiastical or Temporal, andrestrain with the civil sword the stubborn and evil-doers.==The Bishop of Rome hath no jurisdiction in this Realm of England.==The Laws of the Realm may punish Christian men with death, for heinousand grievous offenses.==It is lawful for Christian men, at the commandment of the Magistrate,to wear weapons, and serve in the wars."=The Riches and Goods of Christians are not common, as touching theright, title, and possession of the same; as certain Anabaptists dofalsely boast. Notwithstanding, every man ought, of such things as hepossesseth, liberally to give alms to the poor, according to hisability.As we confess that vain and rash Swearing is forbidden Christian men byour Lord Jesus Christ, and James his Apostle, so we judge, thatChristian Religion doth not prohibit, but that a man may swear when theMagistrate requireth, in a cause of faith and charity, so it be doneaccording to the Prophet's teaching in justice, judgment, and truth.=Adopted by the House of BishopsChicago, 1886=We, Bishops of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States ofAmerica, in Council assembled as Bishops in the Church of God, do herebysolemnly declare to all whom it may concern, and especially to ourfellow-Christians of the different Communions in this land, who, intheir several spheres, have contended for the religion of kjv@Christ: 1. Our earnest desire that the Savior's prayer, "That we all may beone," may, in its deepest and truest sense, be speedily fulfilled; 2. That we believe that all who have been duly baptized with water,in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, aremembers of the Holy Catholic Church. 3. That in all things of human ordering or human choice, relating tomodes of worship and discipline, or to traditional customs, this Churchis ready in the spirit of love and humility to forego all preferences ofher own; 4. That this Church does not seek to absorb other Communions, butrather, co-operating with them on the basis of a common Faith and Order,to discountenance schism, to heal the wounds of the Body of Christ, andto promote the charity which is the chief of Christian graces and thevisibile manifestation of Christ to the world.But furthermore, we do hereby affirm that the Christian unity...can berestored only by the return of all Christian communions to theprinciples of unity exemplified by the undivided Catholic Church duringthe first ages of its existence; which principles we believe to be thesubstantial deposit of Christian Faith and Order committed by Christ andhis Apostles to the Church unto the end of the world, and thereforeincapable of compromise or surrender by those who have been ordained tobe its stewards and trustees for the common and equal benefit of allmen.As inherent parts of this sacred deposit, and therefore as essential tothe restoration of unity among the divided branches of Christendom, weaccount the following, to wit:1. The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the revealedWord of God.2. The Nicene Creed as the sufficient statement of the Christian Faith.3. The two Sacraments,--Baptism and the Supper of the Lord,--ministeredwith unfailing use of Christ's words of institution and of the elementsordained by Him.4. The Historic Episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of itsadministration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples called ofGod into the unity of His Church.=Furthermore,= Deeply grieved by the sad divisions which affect theChristian Church in oun own land, we hereby declare our desire andreadiness, so soon as there shall be any authorized response to thisDeclaration, to enter into brotherly conference with all or anyChristian Bodies seeking the restoration of the organic unity of theChurch, with a view to the earnest study of the conditions under whichso priceless a blessing might happily be brought to pass.=Note: While the above form of the Quadrilateral was adopted by theHouse of Bishops, it was not enacted by the House of Deputies, butrather incorporated in a general plan referred for study and action to anewly created Joint Commission on Christian Reunion.==Lambeth Conferent of 1888Resolution 11=That, in the opinion of this Conference, the following Articles supply abasis on which approach may be by God's blessing made towards HomeReunion:(a) The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as "containingall things necessary to salvation," and as being the rule and ultimatestandard of faith.(b) The Apostles' Creed, as the Baptismal Symbol; and the Nicene Creed,as the sufficient statement of the Christian faith.(c) The two Sacraments ordained by Christ Himself--Baptism and theSupper of the Lord--ministered with unfailing use of Christ's words ofInstitution, and of the elements ordained by Him.4. The Historic Episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of itsadministration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples called ofGod into the Unity of His Church.Easter Day is always the Sunday after the full moon that occurs on orafter the sping equinox on March 21, a date which is fixed in accordancewith an ancient ecclesiastical computation, and which does not alwayscorrespond to the astronomical equinox. This full moon may happen onany date between March 21 and April 18 inclusive. If the full moonfalls on a Sunday, Easter Day is the Sunday following. But Easter Daycannot be earlier than March 22 or later than April 25.To find the date of Easter Day in any particular year, it is necessaryto have two points of reference--the Golden Number and the Sunday Letterfor that year. 1. The Golden Number indicates the date of the full moon on or afterthe spring equinox of March 21, according to a nineteen-year cycle.These Numbers are prefixed in the Calendar to the days of the month fromMarch 22 to April 19 inclusive. In the present Calendar they areapplicable from A.D. 1900 to A.D. 2099, after which they will change.2. The Sunday Letter identifies the days of the year when Sundaysoccur. After every date in the Calendar a letter appears--from A tog. Thus, if January 1 is a Sunday, the Sunday Letter for the Year isA, and every date in the Calendar marked by A is a Sunday. IfJanuary 2 is a Sunday, then every date marked with b is a Sunday, andso on through the seven letters.In Leap Years, however, the Sunday Letter changes on the first day ofMarch. In such years, when A is the Sunday Letter, this applies onlyto Sundays in January and February, and g is the Sunday Letter for therest of the year. Or if d is the Sunday Letter, then c is theSunday Letter on and after March 1.The Golden Number of any year is calculated as follows: Take the numberof the year, add 1, and then divide the sum by 19. The remainder, ifany, is the Golden Number. If nothing remains, then 19 is the GoldenNumber.The following Table provides ready reference to the Sunday Letter of anyyear between A.D. 1900 and A.D. 2099. It will be found on the line ofthe hundredth year above the column that contains the remaining digitsof the year. But in Leap Years the Letter above the number marked withan asterisk is the Sunday Letter for January and February, and theLetter over the number not so marked is the Sunday Letter for the restof the year.Hundred kjv@Years:1900: , , g, , f, , e, , d, , c, , b, , A2000: b, , A, , g, , f, , e, , d, , c, , bYears in excess of Hundreds:00,,00, ,01, ,02, ,03, ,04,*,04, ,05, ,06, ,07, ,08,*,08, ,09, ,10, ,11, ,12,*,12, ,13, ,14, ,15, ,16,*,16, ,17, ,18, ,19, ,20,*,20, ,21, ,22, ,23, ,24,*,24, ,25, ,26, ,27, ,28,* ,28, ,29, ,30, ,31, ,32,*,32, ,33, ,34, ,35, ,36,*,36, ,37, ,38, ,39, ,40,*,40, ,41, ,42, ,43, ,44,*,44, ,45, ,46, ,47, ,48,*,48, ,49, ,50, ,51, ,52,*,52, ,53, ,54, ,55, ,56,* ,56, ,57, ,58, ,59, ,60,*,60, ,61, ,62, ,63, ,64,*,64, ,65, ,66, ,67, ,68,*,68, ,69, ,70, ,71, ,72,*,72, ,73, ,74, ,75, ,76,*,76, ,77, ,78, ,79, ,80,*,80, ,81, ,82, ,83, ,84,* ,84, ,85, ,86, ,87, ,88,*,88, ,89, ,90, ,91, ,92,*,92, ,93, ,94, ,95, ,96,,96, ,97, ,98, ,99, , , , ,When one has both tho Golden Number and the Sunday Letter for anyparticular year, then the date of Easter Day may be found in theCalendar, pages 21 and 22, as follows: 1. The Golden Number prefixed to a day in the month of March or Aprilin the Calendar marks the date of the full moon in that year. 2. Easter Day will be the next date bearing the Sunday Letter of thatyear. But when the Golden Number of a given year and the Sunday Letterof that year occur on the same date, then Easter day is one week later.(For example, if the Golden Number is 19--which appears in the Calendarprefixed to March 27--and the Sunday Letter is d, then Easter Day inthat year will fall on March 29. If the Golden Number is 10 and theSunday Letter is A, then Easter Day will fall on April 9. But if theGolden Number is 19 and the Sunday Letter is b, then Easter Day willbe one week later, namely April 3.)Golden Number, Year, Easter Day 1, 1900, , April 15 2, 1901, , April 7 3, 1902, , March 30 4, 1903, , April 12 5, 1904,, April 3 6, 1905, , April 23 7, 1906, , April 15 8, 1907, , March 31 9, 1908,*, April 1910, 1909, , April 1111, 1910, , March 2712, 1911, , April 1613, 1912,*, April 714, 1913, , March 2315, 1914, , April 1216, 1915, , April 417, 1916,*, April 2318, 1917, , April 819, 1918, , March 31 1, 1919, , April 20 2, 1920,*, April 4 3, 1921, , March 27 4, 1922, , April 16 5, 1923, , April 1 6, 1924,*, April 20 7, 1925, , April 12 8, 1926, , April 4 9, 1927, , April 1710, 1928,*, April 811, 1929, , March 3112, 1930, , April 2013, 1931, , April 514, 1932,*, March 2715, 1933, , April 1616, 1934, , April 117, 1935, , April 2118, 1936,*, April 1219, 1937, , March 28 1, 1938, , April 17 2, 1939, , April 9 3, 1940,*, March 24 4, 1941, , April 13 5, 1942, , April 5 6, 1943, , April 25 7, 1944,*, April 9 8, 1945, , April 1 9, 1946, , April 2110, 1947, , April 611, 1948,*, March 2812, 1949, , April 1713, 1950, , April 914, 1951, , March 2515, 1952,*, April 1316, 1953, , April 517, 1954, , April 1818, 1955, , April 1019, 1956,*, April 1 1, 1957, , April 21 2, 1958, , April 6 3, 1959, , March 29 4, 1960,*, April 17 5, 1961, , April 2 6, 1962, , April 22 7, 1963, , April 14 8, 1964,*, March 29 9, 1965, , April 1810, 1966, , April 1011, 1967, , March 2612, 1968,*, April 1413, 1969, , April 614, 1970, , March 2915, 1971, , April 1116, 1972,*, April 217, 1973, , April 2218, 1974, , April 1419, 1975, , March 30 1, 1976,*, April 18 2, 1977, , April 10 3, 1978, , March 26 4, 1979, , April 15 5, 1980,*, April 6 6, 1981, , April 19 7, 1982, , April 11 8, 1983, , April 3 9, 1984,*, April 2210, 1985, , April 711, 1986, , March 3012, 1987, , April 1913, 1988,*, April 314, 1989, , March 2615, 1990, , April 1516, 1991, , March 3117, 1992,*, April 1918, 1993, , April 1119, 1994, , April 3 1, 1995, , April 16 2, 1996,*, April 7 3, 1997, , March 30 4, 1998, , April 12 5, 1999, , April 4 6, 2000,*, April 23 7, 2001, , April 15 8, 2002, , March 31 9, 2003, , April 2010, 2004,*, April 1111, 2005, , March 2712, 2006, , April 1613, 2007, , April 814, 2008,*, March 2315, 2009, , April 1216, 2010, , April 417, 2011, , April 2418, 2012,*, April 819, 2013, , March 31 1, 2014, , April 20 2, 2015, , April 5 3, 2016,*, March 27 4, 2017, , April 16 5, 2018, , April 1 6, 2019, , April 21 7, 2020,*, April 12 8, 2021, , April 4 9, 2022, , April 1710, 2023, , April 911, 2024,*, March 3112, 2025, , April 2013, 2026, , April 514, 2027, , March 2815, 2028,*, April 1616, 2029, , April 117, 2030, , April 2118, 2031, , April 1319, 2032,*, March 28 1, 2033, , April 17 2, 2034, , April 9 3, 2035, , March 25 4, 2036,*, April 13 5, 2037, , April 5 6, 2038, , April 25 7, 2039, , April 10 8, 2040,*, April 1 9, 2041, , April 2110, 2042, , April 611, 2043, , March 2912, 2044,*, April 1713, 2045, , April 914, 2046, , March 2515, 2047, , April 1416, 2048,*, April 517, 2049, , April 1818, 2050, , April 1019, 2051, , April 2 1, 2052,*, April 21 2, 2053, , April 6 3, 2054, , March 29 4, 2055, , April 18 5, 2056,*, April 2 6, 2057, , April 22 7, 2058, , April 14 8, 2059, , March 30 9, 2060,*, April 1810, 2061, , April 1011, 2062, , March 2612, 2063, , April 1513, 2064,*, April 614, 2065, , March 2915, 2066, , April 1116, 2067, , April 317, 2068,*, April 2218, 2069, , April 1419, 2070, , March 30 1, 2071, , April 19 2, 2072,*, April 10 3, 2073, , March 26 4, 2074, , April 15 5, 2075, , April 7 6, 2076,*, April 19 7, 2077, , April 11 8, 2078, , April 3 9, 2079, , April 2310, 2080,*, April 711, 2081, , March 3012, 2082, , April 1913, 2083, , April 414, 2084,*, March 2615, 2085, , April 1516, 2086, , March 3117, 2087, , April 2018, 2088,*, April 1119, 2089, , April 3 * The years marked with an asterisk are Leap Years.Easter Day, Sundays after Epiphany[*], Ash Wednesday+, Ascension Day, Pentecost, Numbered Proper of 2 Pentecost++, Advent Sunday [*] In Leap Years, the number of Sundays after Epiphany will be thesame as if Easter Day were one day later than in the above Table. + In Leap Years, the date of Ash Wednesday will be one day later inthe month of February than in the above Table. ++ Indicates the numbered Proper to be used on the Sunday afterTrinity Sunday.

(For example, 1977 divided by 3 is 659 with noremainder. Year A, therefore, begins on Advent Sunday of that year.)*The Psalms and Lessons appointed for the Sundays and for other majorHoly Days are intended for use at all public services on such days,except when the same congregation attends two or more services. Thus,the same Lessons are to be read at the principal morning service,whether the Liturgy of the Word takes the form given in the HolyEucharist, or that of the Daily Office.When the same congregation is present for Morning or Evening Prayer, inaddition to the Eucharist, the Lessons at the Office may be selectedfrom one of the other years of the three-year Sunday cycle, or from theLectionary for the Daily Office. The Psalms at such Offices arenormally those appointed in the Office Lectionary; but, when desired,the Psalm cited in the selected Sunday Proper may be used instead.*In this Lectionary, the selections from the Psalter are frequentlycited in a longer and shorter version, usually from the same Psalm. Thelonger version is particularly appropriate for use at the Office, theshorter version when the Psalm is sung between the Lessons at theEucharist. The selections may be further lengthened or shortened atdiscretion.**When an alternative Lesson is cited, it is sometimes identical with aLesson appointed for the same day in the Daily Office Lectionary.**In the opening verses of Lessons, the Reader should omit initialconjunctions which refer only to what has preceded, substitute nouns forpronouns when the referent is not otherwise clear, or else prefix to theReading some such introduction as, "&N. said (to &N.)."**Any Reading may be lengthened at discretion.

Year Onebegins on the First Sunday of Advent preceding odd-numbered years, andYear Two begins on the First Sunday of Advent preceding even-numberedyears. (Thus, on the First Sunday of Advent, 1976, the Lectionary forYear One is begun.)*Three Readings are provided for each Sunday and weekday in each of thetwo years. Two of the Readings may be used in the morning and one inthe evening; or, if the Office is read only once in the day, all threeReadings may be used. When the Office is read twice in the day, it issuggested that the Gospel Reading be used in the evening in Year One,and in the morning in Year Two. If two Readings are desired at bothOffices, the Old Testament Reading for the alternate year is used as theFirst Reading at Evening Prayer.*When more than one Reading is used at an Office, the first is alwaysfrom the Old Testament (or the Apocrypha).**When a Major Feast interrupts the sequence of Readings, they may be re-ordered by lengthening, combining, or omitting some of them, to securecontinuity or avoid repitition.**Any Reading may be lengthened at discretion. Suggested lengtheningsare shown in parentheses.**In this Lectionary (except in the weeks from 4 Advent to 1 Epiphany,and Palm Sunday to 2 Easter), the Psalms are arranged in a seven-weekpattern which recurs throughout the year, except for appropriatevariations in Lent and Easter Season.**In the citation of the Psalms, those for the morning are given first,and then those for the evening. At the discretion of the officiant,however, any of the Psalms appointed for a given day may be used in themorning or in the evening. Likewise, Psalms appointed for any day maybe used on any other day in the same week, except on major Holy Days.Brackets and parentheses are used (brackets in the case of wholePsalms, parentheses in the case of verses) to indicate Psalms and versesof Psalms which may be omitted.

        "The first and chief article is this: Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, died for our sins and was raised again for our justification (nkjv@Romans:3:24-25). He alone is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (nkjv@John:1:29), and God has laid on Him the iniquity of us all (nkjv@Isaiah:53:6). All have sinned and are justified freely, without their own works and merits, by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, in His blood (nkjv@Romans:3:23-25). This is necessary to believe. This cannot be otherwise acquired or grasped by any work, law or merit. Therefore, it is clear and certain that this faith alone justifies us ... Nothing of this article can be yielded or surrendered, even though heaven and earth and everything else falls (nkjv@Mark:13:31)."


        ConfessionOfFaithOfTheCalvinisticMethodists1823
        Found: As the law was magnified, justice satisfied, the divine government honoured, and all God's attributes were glorified, in the life and death of Christ, so also the church (a) was wholly redeemed from the earth, from among men, from under the curse, from all iniquity - redeemed to God with a price, by payment of a ransom, even the precious blood of Christ. The original cause of this redemption is the infinite love and grace of the Trinity (b). In an eternal decree and council between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, for the redemption of sinners (c), the Son was chosen to be the Redeemer (d), and it was ordained that he should assume human nature, in order to become our kinsman, with the right to redeem his brethren (e). It was ordained that his Person should stand in the stead of those persons (and those only) who had been given him to redeem (f). In the fulness of time he was made of a woman (g), made under the law, that, by the imputation of their sins to him, he might redeem those who were given to him : "The Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all - and he bare the sins of many" (h). "He hath made (by imputation) him to be sin for us, who knew no sin (by corruption of nature, thought, or deed)" (I). "I lay down," said Christ, "my life for the sheep" (j). He suffered in his own Person the penalty due for the sins which were imputed to him. "Christ hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us (for whom he suffered) to God." He thus redeemed a countless multitude, by making a full atonement for all their sins (k). Men were redeemed, but all things - that is, grace and glory - are obtained for them through the Redeemer, and through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus. Thus the redemption ensures their calling, justification, sanctification, perseverance, adoption, and glorification (l). Though it is improper to say that the Holy Ghost was purchased for his people, yet it is in virtue of the redemption purchased and the atonement made by Christ for their sins, that the Holy Ghost and every good gift pertaining to their salvation are bestowed upon them; the redemption removed all obstacles out of the way, and established communion between heaven and earth. Thus through that ransom, that is to say, the blood of Christ, they are saved from sin and all its consequences, and brought into everlasting glory (m).


        ConfessionOfFaithOfTheCalvinisticMethodists1823
        Found: The Holy Ghost is true God and a true and distinct Person in the Godhead, equal in power and glory with the Father and the Son (a); for he bears a divine name (b), and has divine attributes (c); divine worship is paid him (d); and divine acts have been and are being done by him, which none but God could have done or can do (e). Though it is the Godhead of the three Persons that works all things, yet distinctive operations are ascribed to each Person : creation and election to the Father, redemption to the Son, sanctifying and sealing to the Holy Ghost (f). To the Holy Ghost is also ascribed the forming of Christ's human nature holy in the Virgin's womb (g), and the endowing of it with every grace and gift without measure (h). The writers of Scripture spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (I). He calls and endows men for, and sends them into the work of ministry, and gives them success (j). He convinces (k) and regenerates sinners (l), guides (m) and comforts (n) the children of God, and will raise them up at the last day (o).


        ConfessionOfFaithOfTheCalvinisticMethodists1823
        Found: The work of the Holy Ghost in those who will be saved to eternal life is a gracious (p), holy (q), effectual (r), and abiding (s) work, according to the eternal covenant (t), the effect of eternal love (u), and the fruit of the meritorious redemption (v).


        ConfessionOfFaithOfTheCalvinisticMethodists1823
        Found: Justification is an act of God's free grace, wherein he accounts and declares a man righteous by imputing to him the righteousness of Christ, which the sinner receives by faith (a). In the justification of sinners, God manifests his righteousness and the honor of his law as well as his grace and mercy; inasmuch as he justifies them "through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation, that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus" (b). The righteousness of Christ, whereby sinners are justified, is called "the righteousness which is of God by faith" (c). It is not befitting to ascribe to faith the merit that belongs only to the righteousness of Christ : that would be to confound the sun with the window that transmits the light. Justification contains in itself pardon of all the sinner's transgressions, that he perish not because of them (d); the acceptance of his person in the sight of God (e), and the giving him a lawful claim to the enjoyment of eternal happiness. It is called "justification of life (f)", and the transgressor is thereby made the "heir of eternal life" (g).

        Found: Those whom God justifies, he adopts through Jesus Christ to himself (a), receives them as his children, and gives them the liberty and privileges of children. He calls them by his name, sends forth the spirit of adoption into their hearts, and gives them liberty to come boldly unto the throne of grace, and strength to cry, Abba, Father (b). He pities them, provides for them, teaches them, protects them, and, when necessary, chastises them as their Father (c); but he will not cast them out : he seals them unto the day of redemption. They are children, and also heirs (d).


        ConfessionOfFaithOfTheCalvinisticMethodists1823
        Found: Though Christ redeemed all his people from the curse of the law, as it was sanctioned in the covenant of works (a), yet the moral law, the substance of which was written in the heart of man at his creation (b), which was proclaimed by God from Mount Sinai in ten commandments, to declare God's authority over men and cause the offence to abound, to show the necessity for a mediator and to be a schoolmaster to bring men to Christ (c); which was also proclaimed by Christ in the gospel in two great commandments, love to God and love to our neighbour, the latter springing from and being evidence of the former (d) - this law ever continues to be the rule of man's obedience to his Creator, in no degree changed under any dispensation (e). This perfect law is spiritual, righteous, holy, and good, and contains in itself all that the Lord requires of men; no change being possible in one of its commandments, while God is Creator and man a creature (f). To magnify this law Christ was manifested in the flesh and fulfilled the work of redemption (g); and this is the law that the Holy Ghost writes in the hearts of the redeemed, when they are restored to the image of God (h).


        ConfessionOfFaithOfTheCalvinisticMethodists1823
        Found: Death consists in the separation of body and soul for a time (a). Though man in his original state was not subject to death, every man, in consequence of sin, is subject to death : "it is appointed unto men once to die" (b). The godly and the ungodly, the one as well as the other, are subject to death (c); but the godly are delivered by Christ from the hurt of death, and to them death is turned into gain, whereas to the wicked it will be an unutterable loss, and the entrance into death everlasting (d). At death the bodies return to the earth and see corruption; but the souls are a spiritual substance, and neither die nor sleep, but are brought at once before the throne of God (e). Then will the spirits of the righteous, made perfect, be received into glory, there to wait, in the full enjoyment of God in Christ, for the redemption of their bodies (f).
