Rejoice, a young man, | in, thy | childhood,
And let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy |

youth,
And walk in the ways of thy | heart,
And in the sight of thine eyes :-
But know thou that for all these things
God will bring thee | into | judgment.
Therefore remove sorrow | from thv | heart,
and put away | evil | from thy | ilesh.
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy l.

youth, Thile the days of | evil | come not, Ņor the years arrive in which I thou wilt / say, "I have no pleasure | in them.' Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, All - 1.is vanity. Let i us I hear The conclusion of the | whole | matter : Fear God, and keep his commandments, For this is the whole duly if | man. For God will bring every work into judgment, with.

every secrei | thing; Wiieher it be good, or / whether | it be evil.

ECCLESIASTES XI. 1,2,6--10. XII. 1,8,13,14.

O unto them that cal evil good and good evil; Thai pat darkness für | light, and I lighi fur | darks

ness; That put | bitter for I swcei, and sweet ; - fur l bitter!

Woe unto them that are wise in their | own eyes,
And prudent in their own conceit!
Woe unto them that are mighty to | drink { wine,
And nen of strength 10 | mingle | strong | drink!
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning
To follow | strong | drink ;
Who sit late in the night,
That I wine | may in | flame them.
And the lyre and the harp, the tabret , and the

pipe,
And wine are at their | feasts,
But they regard not the work of the Lord,
Nor attend to the ope | ration of his hands.
Therefore shall my people be | led | captive,
When | - they I think not fit;
Their honourable men shall be | famished with |

hunger,
And their | rich men / parched with thirst.

Therefore doth the grave enlarge his / greedy trat,
And stretch open his | mouih | without | measure :
And down go her nobility | and her / wealth,
Her busy throng, and all that was / joy | ful with |

in her.

The mean man shall be bowed down, and the great

man shall | be brought | low, And the eyes of the haughty shall be humbled ; And the Lord God of hosts shall be ex | alted in |

judgment, Yea, Göd, the Holy One, skati be sanctified

through righteousness.

İSarau V. 20---29,11---16.

waters! And he that hath no money, I come ye, | buy and ! Yra, com?, buy | wine and milk, Without money, and without price. Wherefore do ve spend money for that which I is

not breach! And your labour for that which I will not satisfv. Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye { that which

Behold, the nation whom thou knewest not, I thou

shalt | call; And the nation which knew not | thee, shall | run

un i ro thre, For the sake of the Lord thy Gods and fy the Holy |

One of Israel,
For he !rah | glorified thee.
Behold I have given him for a witness | to the 1

people,
For a leader and lawgiver to the nations.
Seek ye the Lord, while he | mav bel Lund;
Call ye upon him, while he is ncar,

Let the wicked for 1 sake his way,
And the un | righteous | man his I thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord, for he will have

mercy up on him, And to our God, for | he will a | bundantly | pardon, For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Neither are your ways | my ways, / saith the ! Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth; Šo o are sy ways higher than your ways, and my !

thoughts than your thoughts. For, as the rain cometh down, and the snow from

heaven, And returneth not thither again, But watereth the earth, and maketh it bring | forth

and bud, That it may give seed to the sower, and bread | to

the | eåter : So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my

mouth ; It shall not re | turn un | to me void ; But it shall accomplish | that which I | please, And it shall prosper in the thing where I to 1 i

sent it.

For ye shall go out with joy,
And be I led" | furth with | peace ;
The micuntains and the hills shall bürst forth before

you into singing, And all the trees of the field shall | clap their |

hands.

Instead of the thorn shall come up the | fir tree; And instead of the bramble shall come up the

myrtle ;

And it shall be to the Lord | för a name,
For an everlasting sign that I shall not be cut | off.

CHRISTMAS DATA COMFORT ye, comfört ye my people, I saith your |

God: Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, | and cry un |

to her, That her warfare is accomplished, that her in | iquity

is pardoned, That she shall receive at the tord's hand double

| for all her sins.

In the wilderness prepare ye the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert a | highway | for our |

God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain

and hill shall be made | low, And the crocked shall be made straight, and the |

rough | places | plain. And the glory of the Lord shall | he revealed; And all flesh shall | see to | get her The salvation of our | God: For the mouth of the Lord hath I spoken it. All | flesh is , grass, And all the goodliness thereof as the flower of

the field; The grass withereth, the filwer | fadeth; But the word of our | God shall stand for | ever.
