Ps 23. Dominus regit me.
Ps 121. Levavi oculos.
2 Samuel 15:17-21
17 And the king went forth, and all the people after him, and
tarried in a place that was far off.
18 And all his servants passed on beside him; and all the Cherethites,
and all the Pelethites, and all the Gittites, six hundred men
which came after him from Gath, passed on before the king.
19 Then said the king to Ittai the Gittite, Wherefore goest thou
also with us? return to thy place, and abide with the king: for
thou art a stranger, and also an exile.
20 Whereas thou camest but yesterday, should I this day make
thee go up and down with us? seeing I go whither I may, return
thou, and take back thy brethren: mercy and truth be with thee.
Ittai answered the king, and said, As the LORD liveth, and as
my lord the king liveth, surely in what place my lord the king
shall be, whether in death or life, even there also will thy
1 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the
town of Mary and her sister Martha.
2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and
wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold,
he whom thou lovest is sick.
4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death,
but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified
5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two
days still in the same place where he was.
7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea
8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought
to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk
in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this
10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there
is no light in him.
11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our
friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of
12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he
had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the
intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples,
Let us also go, that we may die with him.
Ps 27. Dominus illuminatio.
1 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought
can be withholden from thee.
3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore
have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for
me, which I knew not.
4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee,
and declare thou unto me.
5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine
eye seeth thee.
I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe
also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so,
I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest;
and how can we know the way?
saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and
from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Ps 112. Beatus vir.
Ps 113. Laudate, pueri.
Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that
9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people
be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former
things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be
justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I
have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand
that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall
there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shown, when there
was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses,
saith the LORD, that I am God.
13 Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can
deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?
1 Peter 1:3-9
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a
lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need
be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold
that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found
unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him
not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full
