Psalm 10; Psalm 11; Psalm 12; Acts 19:1-20

1 (9-22) Why, O Lord, hast thou retired afar off? why dost thou slight us in our wants, in the time of trouble? 2 (9-23) Whilst the wicked man is proud, the poor is set on fire: they are caught in the counsels which they devise. 3 (9-24) For the sinner is praised in the desires of his soul: and the unjust man is blessed. 4 (9-25) The sinner hath provoked the Lord, according to the multitude of his wrath, he will not seek him: 5 (9-26) God is not before his eyes: his ways are filthy at all times. Thy judgments are removed form his sight: he shall rule over all his enemies. 6 (9-27) For he hath said in his heart: I shall not be moved from generation to generation, and shall be without evil. 7 (9-28) His mouth is full of cursing, and of bitterness, and of deceit: under his tongue are labour and sorrow. 8 (9-29) He sitteth in ambush with the rich, in private places, that he may kill the innocent. 9 (9-30) His eyes are upon the poor man: he lieth in wait, in secret, like a lion in his den. He lieth in ambush, that he may catch the poor man: so catch the poor, whilst he draweth him to him. 10 (9-31) In his net he will bring him down, he will crouch and fall, when he shall have power over the poor. 11 (9-32) For he hath said in his heart: God hath forgotten, he hath turned away his face, not to see to the end. 12 (9-33) Arise, O Lord God, let thy hand be exalted: forget not the poor. 13 (9-34) Wherefore hath the wicked provoked God? for he hath said in his heart: He will not require it. 14 (9-35) Thou seest it, for thou considerest labour and sorrow: that thou mayst deliver them into thy hands. To thee is the poor man left: thou wilt be a helper to the orphan. 15 (9-36) Break thou the arm of the sinner and of the malignant: his sin shall be sought, and shall not be found. 16 (9-37) The Lord shall reign to eternity, yea, for ever and ever: ye Gentiles shall perish from his land. 17 (9-38) The Lord hath heard the desire of the poor: thy ear hath heard the preparation of their heart. 18 (9-39) To judge for the fatherless and for the humble, that man may no more presume to magnify himself upon earth.
1 (10-1) <Unto the end. A psalm to David.> (10-2) In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: Get thee away from hence to the mountain, like a sparrow. 2 (10-3) For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow: they have prepared their arrows in the quiver, to shoot in the dark the upright of heart. 3 (10-4) For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: but what has the just man done? 4 (10-5) The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven. His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine the sons of men. 5 (10-6) The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity, hateth his own soul. 6 (10-7) He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone, and storms of winds, shall be the portion of their cup. 7 (10-8) For the Lord is just, and hath loved justice: his countenance hath beheld righteousness.
1 (11-1) <Unto the end: for the octave, a psalm for David.> (11-2) Save me, O Lord, for there is now no saint: truths are decayed from among the children of men. 2 (11-3) They have spoken vain things, every one to his neighbour: with deceitful lips, and with a double heart have they spoken. 3 (11-4) May the Lord destroy all deceitful lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things. 4 (11-5) Who have said: We will magnify our tongue: our lips are our own: who is Lord over us? 5 (11-6) By reason of the misery of the needy, and the groans of the poor, now will I arise, saith the Lord. I will set him in safety: I will deal confidently in his regard. 6 (11-7) The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried by the fire, purged from the earth, refined seven times. 7 (11-8) Thou, O Lord, wilt preserve us: and keep us from this generation for ever. 8 (11-9) The wicked walk round about: according to thy highness, thou hast multiplied the children of men.
1 And it came to pass, while Apollo was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper coasts, came to Ephesus and found certain disciples. 2 And he said to them: Have you received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? But they said to him: We have not so much as heard whether there be a Holy Ghost. 3 And he said: In what then were you baptized? Who said: In John’s baptism. 4 Then Paul said: John baptized the people with the baptism of penance saying: That they should believe in him, who was to come after him, that is to say, in Jesus. 5 Having heard these things, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had imposed his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came upon them: and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. 7 And all the men were about twelve. 8 And entering into the synagogue, he spoke boldly for the space of three months, disputing and exhorting concerning the kingdom of God. 9 But when some were hardened and believed not, speaking evil of the way of the Lord before the multitude, departing from them, he separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus. 10 And this continued for the space of two years, so that all who dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Gentiles. 11 And God wrought by the hand of Paul more than common miracles. 12 So that even there were brought from his body to the sick, handkerchiefs and aprons: and the diseases departed from them: and the wicked spirits went out of them. 13 Now some also of the Jewish exorcists, who went about, attempted to invoke over them that had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying: I conjure you by Jesus, whom Paul preacheth. 14 And there were certain men, seven sons of Sceva, a Jew, a chief priest, that did this. 15 But the wicked spirit, answering, said to them: Jesus I know: and Paul I know. But who are you? 16 And the man in whom the wicked spirit was, leaping upon them and mastering them both, prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 17 And this became known to all the Jews and the Gentiles that dwelt a Ephesus. And fear fell on them all: and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many of them that believed came, confessing and declaring their deeds 19 And many of them who had followed curious arts brought together their books and burnt them before all. And, counting the price of them, they found the money to be fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So mightily grew the word of God and was confirmed.
