Acts ii. 1-4. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come,

John xvi. 7-11. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: It is expedient for
you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not

Matthew xviii. 10, 11. 14. 5. Take heed that ye despise not one
of these little ones: for I say unto you, that in heaven their an-

certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell
among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded

Psalm xxiii. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He
maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside
the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the
