(22-1) <A psalm for David.> The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing.
(22-2) He hath set me in a place of pasture. He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment:
(22-3) He hath converted my soul. He hath led me on the paths of justice, for his own name’s sake.
(22-4) For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me.
(22-5) Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebreateth me, how goodly is it!
(22-6) And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days.
(23-1) <On the first day of the week, a psalm for David.> The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof: the world, and all they that dwell therein.
(23-2) For he hath founded it upon the seas; and hath prepared it upon the rivers.
(23-3) Who shall ascend into the mountain of the Lord: or who shall stand in his holy place?
(23-4) The innocent in hands, and clean of heart, who hath not taken his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully to his neighbour.
(23-5) He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour.
(23-6) This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek the face of the God of Jacob.
(23-7) Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in.
(23-8) Who is this King of Glory? the Lord who is strong and mighty: the Lord mighty in battle.
(23-9) Lift up your gates, O ye princes, and be ye lifted up, O eternal gates: and the King of Glory shall enter in.
(23-10) Who is this King of Glory? the Lord of hosts, he is the King of Glory.
(24-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
(24-2) In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.
(24-3) Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.
(24-4) Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause. Shew, O Lord, thy ways to me, and teach me thy paths.
(24-5) Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long.
(24-6) Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion; and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.
(24-7) The sins of my youth and my ignorances do not remember. According to thy mercy remember thou me: for thy goodness’ sake, O Lord.
(24-8) The Lord is sweet and righteous: therefore he will give a law to sinners in the way.
(24-9) He will guide the mild in judgment: he will teach the meek his ways.
(24-10) All the ways of the Lord are mercy and truth, to them that seek after his covenant and his testimonies.
(24-11) For thy name’s sake, O Lord, thou wilt pardon my sin: for it is great.
(24-12) Who is the man that feareth the Lord? He hath appointed him a law in the way he hath chosen.
(24-13) His soul shall dwell in good things: and his seed shall inherit the land.
(24-14) The Lord is a firmament to them that fear him: and his covenant shall be made manifest to them.
(24-15) My eyes are ever towards the Lord: for he shall pluck my feet out of the snare.
(24-16) Look thou upon me, and have mercy on me; for I am alone and poor.
(24-17) The troubles of my heart are multiplied: deliver me from my necessities.
(24-18) See my abjection and my labour; and forgive me all my sins.
(24-19) Consider my enemies for they are multiplied, and have hated me with an unjust hatred.
(24-20) Deep thou my soul, and deliver me: I shall not be ashamed, for I have hoped in thee.
(24-21) The innocent and the upright have adhered to me: because I have waited on thee.
(24-22) Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.
And the day following, Paul went in with us unto James: and all the ancients were assembled.
Whom when he had saluted, he related particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.
But they hearing it, glorified God and said to him: Thou seest, brother, how many thousands there are among the Jews that have believed: and they are all zealous for the law.
Now they have heard of thee that thou teachest those Jews, who are among the Gentiles to depart from Moses: saying that they ought not to circumcise their children, nor walk according to the custom.
What is it therefore? The multitude must needs come together: for they will hear that thou art come.
Do therefore this that we say to thee. We have four men, who have a vow on them.
Take these and sanctify thyself with them: and bestow on them, that they may shave their heads. And all will know that the things which they have heard of these are false: but that thou thyself also walkest keeping the law.
But, as touching the Gentiles that believe, we have written, decreeing that they should only refrain themselves from that which has been offered to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication.
Then Paul took the men and, the next day being purified with them, entered into the temple, giving notice of the accomplishment of the days of purification, until an oblation should be offered for every one of them.
But when the seven days were drawing to an end, those Jews that were of Asia, when they saw him in the temple, stirred up all the people and laid hands upon him, crying out:
Men of Israel, help: This is the man that teacheth all men every where against the people and the law and this place; and moreover hath brought in Gentiles into the temple and hath violated this holy place.
(For they had seen Trophimus the Ephesian in the city with him. whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)
And he whole city was in an uproar: and the people ran together. And taking Paul, they drew him out of the temple: and immediately the doors were shut.
And as they went about to kill him, it was told the tribune of the band that all Jerusalem was in confusion.
Who, forthwith taking with him soldiers and centurions, ran down to them. And when they saw the tribune and the soldiers, they left off beating Paul.
Then the tribune, coming near, took him and commanded him to be bound with two chains: and demanded who he was and what he had done.
And some cried one thing, some another, among the multitude. And when he could not know the certainty for the tumult, he commanded him to be carried into the castle.
And when he was come to the stairs, it fell out that he was carried by the soldiers, because of the violence of the people.
For the multitude of the people followed after, crying: Away with him!
And as Paul was about to be brought into the castle, he saith to the tribune: May I speak something to thee? Who said: Canst thou speak Greek?
Art not thou that Egyptian who before these days didst raise a tumult and didst lead forth into the desert four thousand men that were murderers?
But Paul said to him: I am a Jew of Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city. And I beseech thee, suffer me to speak to the people.
And when he had given him leave, Paul standing on the stairs, beckoned with his hand to the people. And a great silence being made, he spoke unto them in the Hebrew tongue, saying:
