Grant, we beseech you, merciful Lord,
to your faithful people pardon and peace,
that they may be cleansed from all their sins
and serve you with a quiet mind;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Old Testament

Exodus 33:12-23

   12And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.

   13Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

   14And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

   15And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

   16For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.

   17And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.

   18And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

   19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

   20And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

   21And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:

   22And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:

   23And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.



1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

   1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

   2We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;

   3Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

   4Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.

   5For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

   6And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost.

   7So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

   8For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.

   9For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;

   10And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.



Psalm 99:1-9

   1The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

   2The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.

   3Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

   4The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

   5Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

   6Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

   7He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

   8Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

   9Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.



Matthew 22:15-22

   15Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

   16And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

   17Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

   18But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

   19Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

   20And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

   21They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

   22When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
