O most mighty God and merciful, &c. as CCXXXVIII,

Turn thou us, O good Lord, &c. as CCXXXIX. The Epistle. 1 Pet. ii. 13 to 23.–Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for ing Lord's sake; whether it be to the King, as supreme; or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him, for the punishment of evil doers, and for the praise of them that do well. Por so is the will of God, that wilh well-doing, ye may put to silence the ignorance nf foolish men: as free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the serrants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God, Honour the King. Serrants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the

froward. For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure gries, suffering wrongfully. For whal glory is it, is when ye be buffeted for your faults ye shall take il patiently? but if when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently; this is acceptable with God. Por even hereunto were ye called; because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps ; who did no sin, neither was yuile found in his mouth.

The Gospel. Matt. xxi. 33 to 42.- There was a certain housholder which planted a rineyard, and hedged it round about, and digyed a wine-press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country. And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husband men, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husband men took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants, more than the first: and they did unto them likewise, But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir, come, let us kill him, and lel us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slet him. When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will ne do unlo those husbandmen! They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
