4For you have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.5And you have forgotten the consolation which speaketh to you, as unto children, saying: My son, neglect not the discipline of the Lord: neither be thou wearied whilst thou art rebuked by him.6For whom the Lord loveth he chastiseth: and he scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.7Persevere under discipline. God dealeth with you as with his sons. For what son is there whom the father doth not correct?
11Now all chastisement for the present indeed seemeth not to bring with it joy, but sorrow: but afterwards it will yield to them that are exercised by it the most peaceable fruit of justice.12Wherefore, lift up the hands which hang down and the feeble knees:13And make straight steps with your feet: that no one, halting, may go out of the way; but rather be healed.14Follow peace with all men and holiness: without which no man shall see God.15Looking diligently, lest any man be wanting to the grace of God: lest any root of bitterness springing up do hinder and by it many be defiled:
1(102-1) <For David himself.> Bless the Lord, O my soul: and let all that is within me bless his holy name.2(102-2) Bless the Lord, O my soul, and never forget all he hath done for thee.3(102-3) Who forgiveth all thy iniquities: who healeth all thy diseases.4(102-4) Who redeemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with mercy and compassion.5(102-5) Who satisfieth thy desire with good things: thy youth shall be renewed like the eagle’s.6(102-6) The Lord doth mercies, and judgment for all that suffer wrong.7(102-7) He hath made his ways known to Moses: his wills to the children of Israel.8(102-8) The Lord is compassionate and merciful: longsuffering and plenteous in mercy.9(102-9) He will not always be angry: nor will he threaten for ever.10(102-10) He hath not dealt with us according to our sins: nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.11(102-11) For according to the height of the heaven above the earth: he hath strengthened his mercy towards them that fear him.12(102-12) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our iniquities from us.13(102-13) As a father hath compassion on his children, so hath the Lord compassion on them that fear him:14(102-14) For he knoweth our frame. He remembereth that we are dust:15(102-15) Man’s days are as grass, as the flower of the field so shall he flourish.16(102-16) For the spirit shall pass in him, and he shall not be: and he shall know his place no more.17(102-17) But the mercy of the Lord is from eternity and unto eternity upon them that fear him: And his justice unto children’s children,18(102-18) To such as keep his covenant, And are mindful of his commandments to do them.
1And going out from thence, he went into his own country; and his disciples followed him.2And when the Sabbath was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were in admiration at his doctrine, saying: How came this man by all these things? and what wisdom is this that is given to him, and such mighty works as are wrought by his hands?3Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joseph, and Jude, and Simon? are not also his sisters here with us? And they were scandalized in regard of him.4And Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and in his own house, and among his own kindred.5And he could not do any miracles there, only that he cured a few that were sick, laying his hands upon them.6And he wondered because of their unbelief, and he went through the villages round about teaching.
