EPISTLE. Heb. xiii. 7, 17. Brethren: Re: member your prelates who have spoken the word of God to you; whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. Jesus Christ yesterday and to day; and the same for ever. Be not led away with various and strange doctrines. For it is best that the heart be established with grace, not with ineats: which have not profited those that walk in them. We have an altar, whereof they have no power to eat who serve the tabernacle. For thie bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the Holies by the high-priest for sin are burned without the camp. Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people by his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore to him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have not here a lasting city, but we seek one that is to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise always to God, that is to say, the fruit of lips confessing to his name. And do not forget to do good and to impart; for by such sacrifices God's favour is obtained. Obey your prelates, and be subject to them. For they watch, as being to render an account of your souls.

LESSON. Prov. viii. 22, 25. The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his ways, before he made any thing, from the beginning. I was set up from eternity, and of old before the earth was made. The depths were not as yet, and I was already conceived, neither had the fountains of waters as yet sprung out: the mountains with their huge bulk liad not as yet been established: before the hills I was brought forth : he had not yet made the earth, nor the rivers, nor the poles of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when with a certain law and compass he enclosed the depths : when he established the sky above, and poised the fountains of waters: when he compassed the sea with its bounds, and set a law to the waters, that they should not pass their limits: when he balanced the foundations of the earth. I was with him forming all things, and was delighted every day, playing before him at all times, playing in the world, and my delight is to be with the children of men. Now, therefore, ve children, hear me: blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, and that watcheth daily at my gates, and waiteth at the posts of my doors. He that shall find me shall find life, and shall have salvation from Lord.
