Psalm 16; Psalm 17; Acts 20:1-16

1 (15-1) <The inscription of a title to David himself.> Preserve me, O Lord, for I have put my trust in thee. 2 (15-2) I have said to the Lord, thou art my God, for thou hast no need of my goods. 3 (15-3) To the saints, who are in his land, he hath made wonderful all my desires in them. 4 (15-4) Their infirmities were multiplied: afterwards they made haste. I will not gather together their meetings for blood offerings: nor will I be mindful of their names by my lips. 5 (15-5) The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup: it is thou that wilt restore my inheritance to me. 6 (15-6) The lines are fallen unto me in goodly places: for my inheritance is goodly to me. 7 (15-7) I will bless the Lord, who hath given me understanding: moreover, my reins also have corrected me even till night. 8 (15-8) I set the Lord always in my sight: for he is at my right hand, that I be not moved. 9 (15-9) Therefore my heart hath been glad, and my tongue hath rejoiced: moreover, my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 (15-10) Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; nor wilt thou give thy holy one to see corruption. 11 (15-11) Thou hast made known to me the ways of life, thou shalt fill me with joy with thy countenance: at thy right hand are delights even to the end.
1 (16-1) <The prayer of David.> Hear, O Lord, my justice: attend to my supplication. Give ear unto my prayer, which proceedeth not from deceitful lips. 2 (16-2) Let my judgment come forth from thy countenance: let thy eyes behold the things that are equitable. 3 (16-3) Thou hast proved my heart, and visited it by night, thou hast tried me by fire: and iniquity hath not been found in me. 4 (16-4) That my mouth may not speak the works of men: for the sake of the words of thy lips, I have kept hard ways. 5 (16-5) Perfect thou my goings in thy paths: that my footsteps be not moved. 6 (16-6) I have cried to thee, for thou, O God, hast heard me: O incline thy ear unto me, and hear my words. 7 (16-7) Shew forth thy wonderful mercies; thou who savest them that trust in thee. 8 (16-8) From them that resist thy right hand keep me, as the apple of thy eye. Protect me under the shadow of thy wings. 9 (16-9) From the face of the wicked who have afflicted me. My enemies have surrounded my soul: 10 (16-10) They have shut up their fat: their mouth hath spoken proudly. 11 (16-11) They have cast me forth, and now they have surrounded me: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth. 12 (16-12) They have taken me, as a lion prepared for the prey; and as a young lion dwelling in secret places. 13 (16-13) Arise, O Lord, disappoint him and supplant him; deliver my soul from the wicked one; thy sword 14 (16-14) From the enemies of thy hand. O Lord, divide them from the few of the earth in their life: their belly is filled from thy hidden stores. They are full of children: and they have left to their little ones the rest of their substance. 15 (16-15) But as for me, I will appear before thy sight in justice: I shall be satisfied when thy glory shall appear.
1 And after the tumult was ceased, Paul calling to him the disciples and exhorting them, took his leave and set forward to go into Macedonia. 2 And when he had gone over those parts and had exhorted them with many words, he came into Greece: 3 Where, when he had spent three months, the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria. So he took a resolution to return through Macedonia. 4 And there accompanied him Sopater, the son of Pyrrhus, of Berea: and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus: and Gaius of Derbe and Timothy: and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus. 5 These, going before, stayed for us at Troas. 6 But we sailed from Philippi after the days of the azymes and came to them to Troas in five days, where we abode seven days. 7 And on the first day of the week, when we were assembled to break bread, Paul discoursed with them, being to depart on the morrow. And he continued his speech until midnight. 8 And there were a great number of lamps in the upper chamber where we were assembled. 9 And a certain young man named Eutychus, sitting on the window, being oppressed with a deep sleep (as Paul was long preaching), by occasion of his sleep fell from the third loft down and was taken up dead. 10 To whom, when Paul had gone down, he laid himself upon him and, embracing him, said: Be not troubled, for his soul is in him. 11 Then going up and breaking bread and tasting and having talked a long time to them, until daylight, so he departed. 12 And they brought the youth alive and were not a little comforted. 13 But we going aboard the ship, sailed to Assos, being there to take in Paul. For so he had appointed, himself purposing to travel by land. 14 And when he had met with us at Assos, we took him in and came to Mitylene. 15 And sailing thence, the day following we came over against Chios: and the next day we arrived at Samos: and the day following we came to Miletus. 16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, lest he should be stayed any time in Asia. For he hasted. if it were possible for him, to keep the day of Pentecost at Jerusalem.
