1 Samuel 8:1-22
1. When Samuel was old, he made his sons judges over Israel.
2. The name of his eldest son was Joel, and the name of the second Abiath, which were judges in Bersabe.
3. Nevertheless his sons followed not his steps: but turned aside after lucre and took rewards, and perverted the right.
4. Then all the elders of Israel gathered them together and came to Samuel unto Kamath
5. and said unto him: behold, thou art old and thy sons follow not thy ways. Now therefore make us a king to judge us, as all other nations have.
6. But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
7. And the LORD said unto Samuel, hear the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee. For they have not cast thee away, but me: that I should not reign over them.
8. And as they have ever done (since I brought them out of Egypt unto this day, and have forsaken me and served other gods) even so do they unto thee.
9. Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet, testify unto them and shew them the duty of the king that shall reign over them.
10. And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked a king of him,
11. and he said: this shall be the duty of the king that shall reign over you: he will take your sons and put them to his chariots and make his horsemen of them and they must run before his chariot,
12. and will make him captains of them over thousands and over fifties, and set them to ear his ground, and to gather in his harvest, and to make instruments of war and apparel for his chariots.
13. And he will take your daughters and make them the dressers of his ointments, and his cooks and bakers.
14. And he shall take the best of your fields, and of your vineyards and of your olive trees, and give them to his servants.
15. And he shall take the tenth of your seed and of your vines, and give it to his lords, and to his servants.
16. And he shall take the best of your menservants and maidservants and young men, and of your asses, and do his work with them.
17. And he shall take the tenth of your sheep, and ye shall be his servants.
18. And when ye cry out at that time upon your king which ye shall have chosen you, the LORD will not hear you at that day.
19. Nevertheless the people would not hear the voice of Samuel, but did say: nay not so: But there shall be a king over us,
20. and we will be like all other nations. And our king shall judge us, and go out before us and fight our battles.
21. And Samuel heard all the words of the people and rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.
22. And the LORD said to Samuel: hearken unto their voice and make them a king. Then said Samuel unto the men of Israel: go every man to his city.

1 Samuel 9:1-27
1. Now there was a man of Benjamin named Cis the son of Abiel, the son of Zeroz. the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, the son of a man that was a Jeminite, a man of might:
2. the same had a son called Saul, a goodly young man, so that among the children of Israel, there was none goodlier than he, and was thereto from the shoulders upward higher than all the other people.
3. And it chanced that the Asses of this Cis Saul's father were lost. Then said Cis to Saul his son: Take one of the lads with thee and up and go seek the Asses.
4. And they went thorow mount Ephraim and thorow the land of Salisa, and found them not. Then they went thorow the land of Salim, and there they were not. Then they went also thorow the land of Jemini, and they found them not.
5. Then when they were come to the land of Zuph, Saul said to the young man that was with him: come let us return, lest my father leave caring for the Asses, and take thought for us. And he answered him:
6. behold there is in this city a worshipful man of God, and all that he sayeth, cometh to pass. Now then let us go thither: peradventure he shall shew us what way we may go.
7. Then said Saul to his lad: if we go what shall we bring the man? For our bread is all spent out of our hampers and there is none other present to bring the man of God, what have we?
8. And the young man answered Saul again and said: I have found about me the fourth part of a Sicle, that will we give the man of God to tell us our way.
9. Before time in Israel when a man went to seek an answer of God, thus wise he spake, come and let us go to the Sear. For he that is now called a prophet, was in the old time called a Sear.
10. Then said Saul to his young man: well said of thee: come let us go. And so they went unto the city where the man of God was.
11. And as they were going up into the city, they met with damsels that came out to draw water, and said unto them: is there here a sear?
12. And the maidens answered them, yea: behold, he goeth before you. Make haste now, for he came this day to the city, for the people must offer this day in the hill.
13. When ye be come into the city, so shall you find him, yer he go up to the hill to eat: for the people will not eat until he come, because he must bless the offering. And then eat they that be bidden to the feast. Now therefore get you up for even now shall ye find him.
14. And they went up into the city. And when they were come into the midst of the city: behold, Samuel came out against them, for to go up to the hill.
15. But the LORD had told Samuel a day before Saul came, saying:
16. tomorrow this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, him shalt thou anoint to be captain over my people Israel, that he may save my people out of the hand of the Philistines, for I have looked upon my people and their cry is come unto me.
17. When Samuel saw Saul, the LORD answered him: see, this is the man whom I spake to thee of. This same shall reign over my people.
18. Then went Saul to Samuel in the middle of the gate, and said: tell me I pray thee, where about the sear's house is,
19. and Samuel answered Saul and said: I am the sear, go up before me unto the hill, for ye shall eat with me to day. And tomorrow I will let thee go early, and will tell thee all that is in thine heart,
20. and as for thine asses that were lost this day three days, care not for them, for they are found. And moreover whose shall the beautiful things of Israel be? belong they not unto thee, and unto all thy father's house?
21. But Saul answered and said: am not I the son of a Jeminite of the smallest tribe of Israel, and my kindred the least of all the kindreds of the tribe of Benjamin, wherefore then speakest thou so to me?
22. And Samuel took Saul and his lad and brought them into the parlour and made them sit in the chiefest place among them that were bidden: which were upon a thirty persons.
23. Then said Samuel unto the cook: bring forth the portion which I gave thee, and of which I said keep it with thee.
24. And the cook took up the shoulder and brought it, and set it before Saul. And Samuel said: behold, that which is left: put it before thee and eat, for I kept it for thee of purpose, when I called the people. And so Saul did eat with Samuel that day.
25. And when they were come down from the hill unto the city, Samuel communed with Saul upon the top of the house:
26. and they arose early. And about the spring of the day Samuel called Saul upon the top of the house saying: up that I may send thee away. And Saul arose. And they went out at the doors both of them, both he and Samuel.
27. And when they were come almost out of the town, Samuel said to Saul: bid the lad go before us, and he went, but stand thou still awhile even now, that I may shew thee what God sayeth.

Psalms 55:9-15
9. Destroy their tongues (O Lord)(o LORDE) and divide them, for I see unrighteousness and strife in the city.
10. This goeth day and night about the walls, mischief and vice are in the middest of it.
11. Wickedness is therein, deceit and guile go not out of her streets.
12. If it were mine enemy that reviled me, I could bear it: or if one that ought me evil will did threaten me, I would hide myself from him.
13. But it is thou my companion, my guide and mine own familiar friend.
14. We had sweet and secret communication together (and lovingly walked we together) in the house of God.
15. Let death come hastily upon them, and let them go down quick into hell, for wickedness is among them in their dwellings.

Proverbs 15:15-17
15. All the days of the poor are miserable, but a quiet heart is as a continual feast.
16. Better is a little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure, for they are not without sorrow.
17. Better is a mess of potage with love, than a fat ox with evil will.

Luke 22:1-23
1. The feast of sweet bread drew nigh which is called ester,
2. and the high priests, and scribes sought how to kill Jesus,(him) but they feared the people.
3. Then entered Satan into Judas, whose sur name was Iscariot (which was of the number of the twelve)
4. and he went his way, and communed with the high priests and officers, how he would(might) betray him to them.
5. And they were glad: and promised to give him money.
6. And he consented, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them, when the people were away.
7. Then came the day of sweet bread, when of necessity(wherein) the ester lamb must be offered.
8. And he sent Peter, and John saying: Go and prepare us the ester lamb, that we may eat.
9. They said to him. Where wilt thou, that we prepare?
10. And he said unto them. Behold as ye enter(when ye be entered) into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water, him follow into the same house that he entereth in,
11. and ye shall say unto the good man of the house. The master sayeth: (unto thee) Where is the guest chamber,(guesthouse) where I shall eat mine ester lamb with my disciples?
12. And he shall shew you a great parlour paved. There make ready.
13. (And) They went and found, as he had said unto them: and made ready the ester lamb.
14. And when the hour came,(was come) he sat down and the twelve apostles with him.
15. And he said unto them: I have inwardly(heartedly) desired to eat this ester lamb with you before that I suffer.
16. For I say unto you: henceforth, I will not eat of it any more, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
17. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said: Receive(Take) this, and divide it among you.
18. For I say unto you: I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God be come.
19. And he took bread, gave thanks, and brake it, and gave it unto them, saying: This is my body which is given for you. This do in the remembrance of me.
20. Likewise also, when they had supped, he took the cup saying: This is the cup,(This cup is) the new testament, in my blood, which shall for you be shed.
21. Yet behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me, is with me on the table.
22. And the son of man goeth as it is appointed: But woe be to that man by whom he is betrayed.
23. And they began to enquire(ask) among themselves, which of them it should be, that should do that.
