Psalm 20; Psalm 21; Psalm 22; Acts 21:1-17

1 (19-1) <Unto the end. A psalm for David.> (19-2) May the Lord hear thee in the day of tribulation: may the name of the God of Jacob protect thee. 2 (19-3) May he send thee help from the sanctuary: and defend thee out of Sion. 3 (19-4) May he be mindful of all thy sacrifices: and may thy whole burnt offering be made fat. 4 (19-5) May he give thee according to thy own heart; and confirm all thy counsels. 5 (19-6) We will rejoice in thy salvation; and in the name of our God we shall be exalted. 6 (19-7) The Lord fulfil all thy petitions: now have I known that the Lord hath saved his anointed. He will hear him from his holy heaven: the salvation of his right hand is in powers. 7 (19-8) Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will call upon the name of the Lord, our God. 8 (19-9) They are bound, and have fallen: but we are risen, and are set upright. 9 (19-9) O Lord, save the king: and hear us in the day that we shall call upon thee.
1 (20-1) <Unto the end. A psalm for David.> (20-2) In thy strength, O Lord, the king shall joy; and in thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly. 2 (20-3) Thou hast given him his heart’s desire: and hast not withholden from him the will of his lips. 3 (20-4) For thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones. 4 (20-5) He asked life of thee: and thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever. 5 (20-6) His glory is great in thy salvation: glory and great beauty shalt thou lay upon him. 6 (20-7) For thou shalt give him to be a blessing for ever and ever: thou shalt make him joyful in gladness with thy countenance. 7 (20-8) For the king hopeth in the Lord: and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. 8 (20-9) Let thy hand be found by all thy enemies: let thy right hand find out all them that hate thee. 9 (20-10) Thou shalt make them as an oven of fire, in the time of thy anger: the Lord shall trouble them in his wrath, and fire shall devour them. 10 (20-11) Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth: and their seed from among the children of men. 11 (20-12) For they have intended evils against thee: they have devised counsels which they have not been able to establish. 12 (20-13) For thou shalt make them turn their back: in thy remnants thou shalt prepare their face. 13 (20-14) Be thou exalted, O Lord, in thy own strength: we will sing and praise thy power.
1 (21-1) <Unto the end, for the morning protection, a psalm for David.> (21-2) O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation are the words of my sins. 2 (21-3) O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me. 3 (21-4) But thou dwellest in the holy place, the praise of Israel. 4 (21-5) In thee have our fathers hoped: they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them. 5 (21-6) They cried to thee, and they were saved: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. 6 (21-7) But I am a worm, and no man: the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people. 7 (21-8) All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head. 8 (21-9) He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him. 9 (21-10) For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: my hope from the breasts of my mother. 10 (21-11) I was cast upon thee from the womb. From my mother’s womb thou art my God, 11 (21-12) Depart not from me. For tribulation is very near: for there is none to help me. 12 (21-13) Many calves have surrounded me: fat bulls have besieged me. 13 (21-14) have opened their mouths against me, as a lion ravening and roaring. 14 (21-15) I am poured out like water; and all my bones are scattered. My heart is become like wax melting in the midst of my bowels. 15 (21-16) My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death. 16 (21-17) For many dogs have encompassed me: the council of the malignant hath besieged me. They have dug my hands and feet. 17 (21-18) They have numbered all my bones. And they have looked and stared upon me. 18 (21-19) They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots. 19 (21-20) But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; look towards my defence. 20 (21-21) Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: my only one from the hand of the dog. 21 (21-22) Save me from the lion’s mouth; and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns. 22 (21-23) I will declare thy name to my brethren: in the midst of the church will I praise thee. 23 (21-24) Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him. 24 (21-25) Let all the seed of Israel fear him: because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man. Neither hath he turned away his face form me: and when I cried to him he heard me. 25 (21-26) With thee is my praise in a great church: I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him. 26 (21-27) The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: their hearts shall live for ever and ever. 27 (21-28) All the ends of the earth shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord: And all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall adore in his sight. 28 (21-29) For the kingdom is the Lord’s; and he shall have dominion over the nations. 29 (21-30) All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him. 30 (21-31) And to him my soul shall live: and my seed shall serve him. 31 (21-32) There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.
1 And when it came to pass that, being parted from them, we set sail, we came with a straight course to Coos, and the day following to Rhodes: and from thence to Patara. 2 And when we had found a ship sailing over to Phenice, we went aboard and set forth. 3 And when we had discovered Cyprus, leaving it on the left hand, we sailed into Syria, and came to Tyre: for there the ship was to unlade her burden. 4 And finding disciples, we tarried there seven days: who said to Paul, through the Spirit, that he should not go up to Jerusalem. 5 And the days being expired, departing we went forward, they all bringing us on our way, with their wives and children, till we were out of the city. And we kneeled down on the shore: and we prayed. 6 And when we had bid one another farewell, we took ship. And they returned home. 7 But we, having finished the voyage by sea, from Tyre came down to Ptolemais: and saluting the brethren, we abode one day with them. 8 And the next day departing, we came to Caesarea. And entering into the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, we abode with him. 9 And he had four daughters, virgins, who did prophesy. 10 And as we tarried there for some days, there came from Judea a certain prophet, named Agabus. 11 Who, when he was come to us, took Paul’s girdle: and binding his own feet and hands, he said: Thus saith the Holy Ghost: The man whose girdle this is, the Jews shall bind in this manner in Jerusalem and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles. 12 Which when we had heard, both we and they that were of that place desired him that he would not go up to Jerusalem. 13 Then Paul answered and said: What do you mean, weeping and afflicting my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but to die also in Jerusalem, for the name of the Lord Jesus. 14 And when we could not persuade him, we ceased, saying: The will of the Lord be done. 15 And after those days, being prepared, we went up to Jerusalem. 16 And there went also with us some of the disciples from Caesarea, bringing with them one Mnason a Cyprian, an old disciple, with whom we should lodge. 17 And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly.
