361Have mercy upon us, O Lord God of all, and behold us:
2And send thy fear upon all the nations that seek not after thee.
3Lift up thy hand against the strange nations, and let them see thy power.
4As thou wast sanctified in us before them: so be thou magnified among them before us.
5And let them know thee, as we have known thee, that there is no God but only thou, O God.
6Shew new signs, and make other strange wonders: glorify thy hand and thy right arm, that they may set forth thy wondrous works.
7Raise up indignation, and pour out wrath: take away the adversary, and destroy the enemy.
8Make the time short, remember the covenant, and let them declare thy wonderful works.
9Let him that escapeth be consumed by the rage of the fire; and let them perish that oppress the people.
10Smite in sunder the heads of the rulers of the heathen, that say, There is none other but we.
11Gather all the tribes of Jacob together, and inherit thou them, as from the beginning.
12O Lord, have mercy upon the people that is called by thy name, and upon Israel, whom thou hast named thy firstborn.
13O be merciful unto Jerusalem, thy holy city, the place of thy rest.
14Fill Sion with thine unspeakable oracles, and thy people with thy glory:
15Give testimony unto those that thou hast possessed from the beginning, and raise up prophets that have been in thy name.
16Reward them that wait for thee, and let thy prophets be found faithful.
17O Lord, hear the prayer of thy servants, according to the blessing of Aaron over thy people, that all they which dwell upon the earth may know that thou art the Lord, the eternal God.
18The belly devoureth all meats, yet is one meat better than another.
19As the palate tasteth divers kinds of venison: so doth an heart of understanding false speeches.
20A froward heart causeth heaviness: but a man of experience will recompense him.
21A woman will receive every man, yet is one daughter better than another.
22The beauty of a woman cheereth the countenance, and a man loveth nothing better.
23If there be kindness, meekness, and comfort, in her tongue, then is not her husband like other men.
24He that getteth a wife beginneth a possession, a help like unto himself, and a pillar of rest.
25Where no hedge is, there the possession is spoiled: and he that hath no wife will wander up and down mourning.
26Who will trust a thief well appointed, that skippeth from city to city? so who will believe a man that hath no house, and lodgeth wheresoever the night taketh him?
11The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
9I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
19Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
