Here beginneth the 16th chapter of Deuteronomy.
Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the
Lord thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the Lord shall choose to place his name there.Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the
Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.
And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.
Lord thy God giveth thee:Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the
Lord thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.But at the place which the
Lord thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents.And thou shalt roast and eat in the place which the
Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work .Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day a solemn assembly to the
Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from thou beginnest the sickle to the corn.
Lord thy God with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give , according as the Lord thy God hath blessed thee:And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the
Lord thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that among you, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen to place his name there.And thou shalt rejoice before the
And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that within thy gates.
Lord thy God in the place which the Lord shall choose: because the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the
Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the Lord empty:Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the
Lord thy God which he hath given thee.Every man as he is able, according to the blessing of the
Lord thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the
Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
Lord thy God giveth thee.That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the
Lord thy God, which thou shalt make thee.Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the
Lord thy God hateth.Neither shalt thou set thee up image; which the
Here endeth the first lesson.
Here beginneth the 6th chapter of Ephesians.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Servants, be obedient to them that are masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether bond or free.
And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high .
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
But that ye also may know my affairs, how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and he might comfort your hearts.
Peace to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
