82. 1 T shall come to pass in the future | days, That the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be

established a bore | all the mountains, And it shall be exalted a | bove•the hills; And the people | shall flow | to it. And many nations shall go, saying, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, That he may teach us his ways, And that we may | walk | in his paths' For from Zion shall go | forth a | law, And the word of the Lord | from Je | rusaleño He shall be a judge of many | nations, And an umpire of many | kingdoms a | far off. Thy shall beat their swords into | plough-shares, And their | spears | into | pruning-hooks ; Nation shall not lift up sword al gainst | nation, Neither shall they learn | war | any | more. But they shall sit every man | under his / vineg And | under his , figstree ; And none shall I make them a | fraid: For the mouth of the Lord hath | spoken it.

Violence shall no more be heard in thy | land :
Wasting nor de 1 struction with in thy | borders.
But thou shalt call thy | walls, Sal | vation,
And / • thy | gates, | Praise.
The sun shall no more be thy i light by 1 day,
Nor shall the brightness of the moon by night en

lighten thee,

For the Lord shall be unto thée an ever | lasting |

light,
And thy | God'shall | be thy | glory.
Thy sun shall no | more go | down,
Neither shall thy | moon be 1 hid :
For the Lord shall be thine ever | lasting | light,
And the days of thy | mourning I shall be ended.

Micah IV. 1--4. Isaian LX. 18—20. (II. 2—4:)

83.

IT is of the Lord's mercies that we are not con i

sumed ;
Because his com | passions | fail not.
They are new | every morning;
Great |

is thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, / saith my | soul;
Therefore I will I | hope in 1 him.
The Lord is goed unto him that I waiteth | for him,
To - the soul that seeketh him.

It is good for a man to wait with | silent | hope
For the sal | vation / of the Lord.
It is good for a man
That he bear the yoke in his youth.

For the Lord will not cast off für | erer:
But though he cause grief, | yet will he have com |

passion, According to the multitude of his mercies. For he taketh no pleasure in afflicting or | grieving

the children if | men.

Who is he that saith, and it I comerh to / pass,
When the Lord com 1 mandeih it | not?
Doch nui evil and good pro | ceed
At the command if the most high!
Whereføre should a living | man com | plain,
On itcmut of his , suffer | ing for | sin ?
Let us search and try our | ways,
And turn a l gain uni to the Lord.

LAMENTATIONS III. 22-27,31-39,37-40

WHEREWITI shall I come before the ! Lord,
And bow myself be | fore the ! luigh God?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of | rams;
Or with ten thousands of rivers of | vil ?
He doth shewed thee, O man what is good :
And what doth the Lord require 1 of thee,
In to do justice, and to I love | mercy,
vrid to k l humbly | with thy | Git

in the Lord our God belong mercies and for i give

nesses, Though we I have rebelled al gainst him; Neither have we obeyed the voice of ihe | Lord our |

God,
To | walk | in his | laws.

Cf old hast thou laid the foundations of the earths
And the heavens are the work of thine hands
hev I shall perish,
L'ur thou shalt en 1 dure

Yea, all of them sha!l wax old as | doth a | garments : As a vesture shalt thou change them, I and they

shall be changed : But thou art in same, And thy ( years shall | have no | end. Fear thou not, I saith the Lord, for 1 | am | with thee: I will cor | rect three in measure, Yet will not leave thee wholly un punished

Although the fig tree shall not blossom,
Neither shall I fruit be in the vines,
The labour of the olive shall | fail,
And the fields , yield no , meat ;
Though the flicks shall he cut off \ from the fold.com
And there shall be no i herd / in the stalls ;
Yet will I rejoice in the Lord,
I will joy in the God of my sal | vation.

MY soul doth magnify the Lord,
And my spirit hath re I joiced in [ God ny | Saviour..
For he hath re , garded
The lowli , ness of his hand | maiden.

For behold! from hence | firth
All gener | ations shall call me I blessed.
For he that is mighty haih i magnified | me,
And holy | is his name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him,
Ihrough out all lever.j ations.

He hath shewed strength with his arm :
He hath scattered the proud in the imagi į nations of

their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty | from their / seat,
And hath ex | alted she | humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things,
And the rich he hath sent | empty a | way.
He, remembering his mercy,
Ha!h helped his servant | Israel;
As he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham |ạnd his / seed for ever.

BLESSED be the Lord God of Israel,
For he hath visited | and re | deemed his people ;
And hath raised up a mighty sal | vation | for us,
In the house cf his / servant | David;

As he spake by the mouth of his holy | prophets,
Which huve been | since the world be gan ;
That we should be saved | from our enemies,
And from the i hands of | all that I hate us ;
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers
And to re member his holy | covenant ;
To perform the oath which he sware to our fore |

father | Abraham, That he would | grant un | to us; That we, being delivered out of the hand of our |

eneinies, Might | serve him without fear,
