The Psalter


Psalm 91


The Ninety-First Psalm

Qui habitat.


WHOSO dwelleth under the defence of the Most High, * shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
 
I will say unto the LORD, Thou art my hope, and my stronghold; * my God, in him will I trust.
 
For he shall deliver thee from the snare of the hunter, * and from the noisome pestilence.
 
He shall defend thee under his wings, and thou shalt be safe under his feathers; * his faithfulness and truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
 
Thou shalt not be afraid for any terror by night, * nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
 
For the pestilence that walketh in darkness, * nor for the sickness that destroyeth in the noon-day.
 
A thousand shall fall beside thee, and ten thousand at thy right hand; * but it shall not come nigh thee.
 
Yea, with thine eyes shalt thou behold, * and see the reward of the ungodly.
 
For thou, LORD, art my hope; * thou hast set thine house of defence very high.
 
There shall no evil happen unto thee, * neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
 
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, * to keep thee in all thy ways.
 
They shall bear thee in their hands, * that thou hurt not thy foot against a stone.
 
Thou shalt go upon the lion and adder: * the young lion and the dragon shalt thou tread under thy feet.
 
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him; * I will set him up, because he hath known my Name.
 
He shall call upon me, and I will hear him; * yea, I am with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and bring him to honour.
 
With long life will I satisfy him, * and show him my salvation.



 

The First Lesson


Genesis 28:10-12, 16-17


And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.



 

The Second Lesson


St. John 1:43

The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 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. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 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. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 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. 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.

O ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who didst give to thine Apostle Bartholomew grace truly to believe and preach thy Word; Grant, we beseech thee, unto thy Church, to love that Word which he believed, and both to preach and receive the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
