Psalm 29; Psalm 30; Acts 23:1-15

1 (28-1) <A psalm for David, at the finishing of the tabernacle.> Bring to the Lord, O ye children of God: bring to the Lord the offspring of rams. 2 (28-2) Bring to the Lord glory and honour: bring to the Lord glory to his name: adore ye the Lord in his holy court. 3 (28-3) The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of majesty hath thundered, The Lord is upon many waters. 4 (28-4) The voice of the Lord is in power; the voice of the Lord in magnificence. 5 (28-5) The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars: yea, the Lord shall break the cedars of Libanus. 6 (28-6) And shall reduce them to pieces, as a calf of Libanus, and as the beloved son of unicorns. 7 (28-7) The voice of the Lord divideth the flame of fire: 8 (28-8) The voice of the Lord shaketh the desert: and the Lord shall shake the desert of Cades. 9 (28-9) The voice of the Lord prepareth the stags: and he will discover the thick woods: and in his temple all shall speak his glory. 10 (28-10) The Lord maketh the flood to dwell: and the Lord shall sit king for ever. 11 (28-10) The Lord will give strength to his people: the Lord will bless his people with peace.
1 (29-1) <A psalm of a canticle, at the dedication of David’s house.> (29-2) I will extol thee, O Lord, for thou hast upheld me: and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me. 2 (29-3) O Lord my God, I have cried to thee, and thou hast healed me. 3 (29-4) Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit. 4 (29-5) Sing to the Lord, O ye his saints: and give praise to the memory of his holiness. 5 (29-6) For wrath is in his indignation; and life in his good will. In the evening weeping shall have place, and in the morning gladness. 6 (29-7) And in my abundance I said: I shall never be moved. 7 (29-8) O Lord, in thy favour, thou gavest strength to my beauty. Thou turnedst away thy face from me, and I became troubled. 8 (29-9) To thee, O Lord, will I cry: and I will make supplication to my God. 9 (29-10) What profit is there in my blood, whilst I go down to corruption? Shall dust confess to thee, or declare thy truth? 10 (29-11) The Lord hath heard, and hath had mercy on me: the Lord became my helper. 11 (29-12) Thou hast turned for me my mourning into joy: thou hast cut my sackcloth, and hast compassed me with gladness: 12 (29-13) To the end that my glory may sing to thee, and I may not regret: O Lord my God, I will give praise to thee for ever.
1 And Paul, looking upon the council, said: Men, brethren, I have conversed with all good conscience before God until this present day. 2 And the high priest, Ananias, commanded them that stood by him to strike him on the mouth. 3 Then Paul said to him: God shall strike thee, thou whited wall. For, sittest thou to judge me according to the law and, contrary to the law, commandest me to be struck? 4 And they that stood by said: Dost thou revile the high priest of God 5 And Paul said: I knew not, brethren, that he is the high priest. For it is written: Thou shalt not speak evil of the prince of thy people. 6 And Paul, knowing that the one part were Sadducees and the other Pharisees, cried out in the council: Men, brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of Pharisees: concerning the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question. 7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees. And the multitude was divided. 8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both. 9 And there arose a great cry. And some of the Pharisees rising up, strove, saying: We find no evil in this man. What if a spirit hath spoken to him, or an angel? 10 And when there arose a great dissension, the tribune, fearing lest Paul should be pulled in pieces by them, commanded the soldiers to go down and to take him by force from among them and to bring him into the castle. 11 And the night following, the Lord standing by him, said: Be constant: for as thou hast testified of me in Jerusalem, so must thou bear witness also at Rome. 12 And when day was come, some of the Jews gathered together and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they killed Paul. 13 And they were more than forty men that had made this conspiracy. 14 Who came to the chief priests and the ancients and said: We have bound ourselves under a great curse that we will eat nothing till we have slain Paul 15 Now therefore do you with the council signify to the tribune, that he bring him forth to you, as if you meant to know something more certain touching him. And we, before he come near, are ready to kill him.
