Then he reads the short chapter following:

From the Holy Gospel according

to St. Matthew.

'AT

:

T that time Jesus said, Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress 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 husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen 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 let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. When the

lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto 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. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard His parables, they perceived that He spake of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitude, because they took Him for a prophet.

Then he says the usual Sentences, Confession, Litany, &c. (page 71), to the end of the Monday Evening Prayers; adding after the Lord's Prayer the following Collect:

Collect for Holy Monday.

ALMIGHTY and eternal God, who wouldst have our Saviour to take flesh and undergo the cross, that man might imitate the example of His humility; grant, we beseech Thee, that we may both be worthy of the instruction of His patience and the fellowship of His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

I poured out my complaints before Him and shewed Him of my trouble.

When my spirit was in heaviness Thou knewest my path: in the way wheren I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

I looked also upon my hand and saw there was no that would know me.

O deliver me from my persecutors: for they are too strong for me.

Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks unto Thy name which thing if Thou wilt grant me, then shall the righteous resort unto my company.

ND it came to pass when Jesus had finished all His sayings, He said unto His disciples, Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of Man is betrayed to be crucified.

Then assembled together the chief priests, and scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas. And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill Him. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.

3 St. Matthew xxvi. 1.

HOLY TUESDAY.

EVENING PRAYER.

All standing, the head of the family (or the priest or deacon, if

present) says:

. Turn Thou us, O God our Saviour. Ry. And let Thine anger cease from us. . O God, make speed to save us. Ry. O Lord, make haste to help us. . Glory be to the Father, &c.

Then he says the following Psalm:

PSALM 143.

EAR my prayer, O Lord, and

unto me for Thy truth and righteousness' sake.

And enter not into judgment with Thy servant : for in Thy sight shall no man living be justified.

For the enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground: he hath laid me in the darkness, as the men that have been long dead.

Therefore is my spirit vexed within me and my heart within me is desolate.

Yet do I remember the time past; I muse upon all Thy works : yea, I exercise myself in the works of Thy hands.

I stretch forth my hands unto Thee my soul gaspeth unto Thee as a thirsty land. O Lord, and that soon,

Hear me,

I BELIEVE in God, &c.

Ry. As it was, &c.

for my spirit waxeth faint hide not Thy face from me, lest I be like

pit.

O let me hear Thy loving-kindness betimes in the morning, for in Thee is my trust: shew Thou me the way that I should walk in, for I lift up my soul unto Thee.

Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies for I flee unto Thee to hide me.

Teach me to do the thing that pleaseth Thee, for Thou art my God let Thy loving Spirit lead me forth into the land of righteousness.

Then all say,

Quicken me, O Lord, for Thy name's sake and for Thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.

And of Thy goodness slay mine enemies and destroy all them that vex my soul; for I am Thy servant.

Then he says,

MAY the reading of the Holy Word (or Holy Gospel) be

unto us salvation and protection. Amen.

Then he reads the short chapter following:

ND being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as Jesus sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on His head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why

poor. And they murmured against her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on Me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good but Me ye have not always. She hath done what she could; she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be

was this waste of the ointment preached throughout the whole made? For it might have been world, this also that she hath done sold for more than three hundred shall be spoken of for a memorial pence, and have been given to the of her.
