to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown
of glory shall she deliver to thee.
10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy
life shall be many.
11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in

thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for
she is thy life.
14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way
of evil men.
15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their
sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.

of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

Son of man should be glorified.

Ps 139. Domine, probasti.
3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even
to his seat!
4 I would
order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
5 I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand
what he would say unto me.
6 Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would
put strength in me.
7 There the righteous might dispute with him; so should I be
delivered for ever from my judge.
8 Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but
I cannot perceive him:
9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him:
he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him:
10 But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me,
I shall come forth as gold.
11 My foot hath held his steps, his way have I kept, and not
12 Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips;
I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth
Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found
him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus
of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come
out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold
an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered
and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou
wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the
Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee,
I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see
greater things than these.
51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter
ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and
descending upon the Son of man.

Ps 27. Dominus illuminatio.
And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto
you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy
upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all
they that wait for him.
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt
weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice
of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the
water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into
a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:
21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This
is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and
when ye turn to the left.
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven,
and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy
Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should
give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only
true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have
glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou
gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with
the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me
out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and
they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given
me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me;
and they have received them, and have known surely that I came
out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
