Psalm 132; Psalm 133; Psalm 134; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34

1 (131-1) <A gradual canticle.> O Lord, remember David, and all his meekness. 2 (131-2) How he swore to the Lord, he vowed a vow to the God of Jacob: 3 (131-3) If I shall enter into the tabernacle of my house: if I shall go up into the bed wherein I lie: 4 (131-4) If I shall give sleep to my eyes, or slumber to my eyelids, 5 (131-5) Or rest to my temples: until I find out a place for the Lord, a tabernacle for the God of Jacob. 6 (131-6) Behold we have heard of it in Ephrata: we have found it in the fields of the wood. 7 (131-7) We will go into his tabernacle: we will adore in the place where his feet stood. 8 (131-8) Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: thou and the ark, which thou hast sanctified. 9 (131-9) Let thy priests be clothed with justice: and let thy saints rejoice. 10 (131-10) For thy servant David’s sake, turn not away the face of thy anointed. 11 (131-11) The Lord hath sworn truth to David, and he will not make it void: of the fruit of thy womb I will set upon thy throne. 12 (131-12) If thy children will keep my covenant, and these my testimonies which I shall teach them: Their children also for evermore shall sit upon thy throne. 13 (131-13) For the Lord hath chosen Sion: he hath chosen it for his dwelling. 14 (131-14) This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it. 15 (131-15) Blessing I will bless her widow: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16 (131-16) I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy. 17 (131-17) There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed. 18 (131-18) His enemies I will clothe with confusion: but upon him shall my sanctification flourish.
1 (132-1) <A gradual canticle of David.> Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity: 2 (132-2) Like the precious ointment on the head, that ran down upon the beard, the beard of Aaron, Which ran down to the skirt of his garment: 3 (132-3) As the dew of Hermon, which descendeth upon mount Sion. For there the Lord hath commanded blessing, and life for evermore.
1 (133-1) <A gradual canticle.> Behold now bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord: Who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God. 2 (133-2) In the nights lift up your hands to the holy places, and bless ye the Lord. 3 (133-3) May the Lord out of Sion bless thee, he that made heaven and earth.
17 Now this I ordain: not praising you, that you come together, not for the better, but for the worse. 18 For first of all I hear that when you come together in the church, there are schisms among you. And in part I believe it. 19 For there must be also heresies: that they also, who are approved may be made manifest among you. 20 When you come therefore together into one place, it is not now to eat the Lord’s supper. 21 For every one taketh before his own supper to eat. And one indeed is hungry and another is drunk. 22 What, have you no houses to eat and to drink in? Or despise ye the church of God and put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? Do I praise you? In this I praise you not. 23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread, 24 And giving thanks, broke and said: Take ye and eat: This is my body, which shall be delivered for you. This do for the commemoration of me. 25 In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in my blood. This do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me. 26 For as often as you shall eat this bread and drink the chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he come. 27 Therefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread and drink of the chalice. 29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord. 30 Therefore are there many infirm and weak among you: and many sleep. 31 But if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 32 But whilst we are judged, we are chastised by the Lord, that we be not condemned with this world. 33 Wherefore, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. 34 If any man be hungry, let him eat at home; that you come not together unto judgment. And the rest I will set in order, when I come.
