Psalm 61 [1]
61:2 Shall not my soul be subject to God? * for from him is my salvation.
61:3 For he is my God and my saviour: * he is my protector, I shall be moved no more.
61:4 How long do you rush in upon a man? * you all kill, as if you were thrusting down a leaning wall, and a tottering fence.
61:5 But they have thought to cast away my price; I ran in thirst: * they blessed with their mouth, but cursed with their heart.
61:6 But be thou, O my soul, subject to God: * for from him is my patience.
61:7 For he is my God and my saviour: * he is my helper, I shall not be moved.
61:8 In God is my salvation and my glory: * he is the God of my help, and my hope is in God.
61:9 Trust in him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before him. * God is our helper for ever.
61:10 But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: * that by vanity they may together deceive.
61:11 Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: * if riches abound, set not your heart upon them.
61:12 God hath spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongeth to God, and mercy to thee, O Lord; * for thou wilt render to every man according to his works.

Psalm 77(9-16) [2]
77:9 The sons of Ephraim who bend and shoot with the bow: * they have turned back in the day of battle.
77:10 They kept not the covenant of God: * and in his law they would not walk.
77:11 And they forgot his benefits, * and his wonders that he had shewn them.
77:12 Wonderful things did he do in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, * in the field of Tanis.
77:13 He divided the sea and brought them through: * and he made the waters to stand as in a vessel.
77:14 And he conducted them with a cloud by day: * and all the night with a light of fire.
77:15 He struck the rock in the wilderness: * and gave them to drink, as out of the great deep.
77:16 He brought forth water out of the rock: * and made streams run down as rivers.

Psalm 104(28-45) [3]
104:28 He sent darkness, and made it obscure: * and grieved not his words.
104:29 He turned their waters into blood, * and destroyed their fish.
104:30 Their land brought forth frogs, * in the inner chambers of their kings.
104:31 He spoke, and there came divers sorts of flies, * and sciniphs in all their coasts.
104:32 He gave them hail for rain, * a burning fire in the land.
104:33 And he destroyed their vineyards, and their fig trees: * and he broke in pieces the trees of their coasts.
104:34 He spoke, and the locust came, and the bruchus, * of which there was no number.
104:35 And they devoured all the grass in their land, * and consumed all the fruit of their ground.
104:36 And he slew all the firstborn in their land: * the firstfruits of all their labour.
104:37 And he brought them out with silver and gold: * and there was not among their tribes one that was feeble.
104:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: * for the fear of them lay upon them.
104:39 He spread a cloud for their protection, * and fire to give them light in the night.
104:40 They asked, and the quail came: * and he filled them with the bread of heaven.
104:41 He opened the rock, and waters flowed: * rivers ran down in the dry land.
104:42 Because he remembered his holy word, * which he had spoken to his servant Abraham.
104:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, * and his chosen with gladness.
104:44 And he gave them the lands of the Gentiles: * and they possessed the labours of the people:
104:45 That they might observe his justifications, * and seek after his law.

The Feast of the Epiphany

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Isa 60:1-6
1 Arise, be enlightened, O Jerusalem: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2 For behold darkness shall cover the earth, and a mist the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3 And the Gentiles shall walk in thy light, and kings in the brightness of thy rising.
4 Lift up thy eyes round about, and see: all these are gathered together, they are come to thee: thy sons shall come from afar, and thy daughters shall rise up at thy side.
5 Then shalt thou see, and abound, and thy heart shall wonder and be enlarged, when the multitude of the sea shall be converted to thee, the strength of the Gentiles shall come to thee.
6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Madian and Epha: all they from Saba shall come, bringing gold and frankincense: and shewing forth praise to the Lord.
