Hymnus {ex Psalterio secundum tempora}
Primo dierum ómnium,
Quo mundus extat cónditus,
Vel quo resúrgens Cónditor
Nos morte victa líberat.

Pulsis procul torpóribus
Surgámus omnes ócius,
Et nocte quærámus pium
Sicut prophetam nóvimus.

Nostras preces ut áudiat,
Suámque dextram pórrigat:
Et expiátos sórdibus
Reddat polórum sédibus.

Ut quique sacratíssimo
Hujus diéi témpore
Horis quiétis psállimus,
Donis beátis múneret.

Jam nunc patérna claritas
Te postulámus áffatim:
Absit libído sórdidans
Et omnis actus nóxius.

Ne fœda sit, vel lúbrica
Compágo nostri córporis,
Per quem Averni ígnibus
Ipsi cremémur ácrius.

Ob hoc Redémptor, quǽsumus,
Ut probra nostra díluas,
Vitæ perénnis cómmoda
Nobis benígne cónferas.

Quo carnis actu éxsules
Effecti ipsi cælibes,
Ut præstolamur cernui,
Melos canamus glóriæ.

* Præsta, Pater piíssime,
Patríque compar Únice,
Cum Spíritu Paráclito
Regnans per omne sǽculum.
Amen.
Hymn {from the Psalter for the season of the Church year}
Hail day! whereon the One in Three
First formed the earth by sure decree,
The day its Maker rose again,
And vanquished death, and burst our chain.

Away with sleep and slothful ease
We raise our hearts and bend our knees,
And early seek the Lord of all,
Obedient to the Prophet's call.

That He may hearken to our prayer,
Stretch forth His strong right arm to spare,
And ev'ry past offense forgiven,
Restore us to our home in heaven.

Assembled here this holy day,
This holiest hour we raise the lay,
And O that He to whom we sing,
May now reward our offering!

O Father of unclouded light!
Keep us this day as in thy sight,
In word and deed that we may be
From ev'ry touch of evil free.

That this our body's mortal frame
May know no sin, and fear no shame,
Nor fire hereafter be the end
Of passions which our bosom rend.

Redeemer of the world, we pray
That thou wouldst wash our sins away,
And give us, of Thy boundless grace,
The blessings of the heavenly place.

Most Holy Father, hear our cry,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord most High
Who, with the Holy Ghost and thee
Shall live and reign eternally.
Amen.

Psalm 21 [2]
21:2 O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? * Far from my salvation are the words of my sins.
21:3 O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: * and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me.
21:4 But thou dwellest in the holy place, * the praise of Israel.
21:5 In thee have our fathers hoped: * they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them.
21:6 They cried to thee, and they were saved: * they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.
21:7 But I am a worm, and no man: * the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people.
21:8 All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: * they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head.
21:9 He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: * let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him.
21:10 For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: * my hope from the breasts of my mother. I was cast upon thee from the womb.
21:11 From my mother’s womb thou art my God, * depart not from me.
21:12 For tribulation is very near: * for there is none to help me.
21:13 Many calves have surrounded me: * fat bulls have besieged me.
21:14 They have opened their mouths against me, * as a lion ravening and roaring.
21:15 I am poured out like water; * and all my bones are scattered.
21:15 My heart is become like wax melting * in the midst of my bowels.
21:16 My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: * and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death.
21:17 For many dogs have encompassed me: * the council of the malignant hath besieged me.
21:17 They have dug my hands and feet. * They have numbered all my bones.
21:18 And they have looked and stared upon me. * They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots.
21:20 But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; * look towards my defence.
21:21 Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: * my only one from the hand of the dog.
21:22 Save me from the lion’s mouth; * and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns.
21:23 I will declare thy name to my brethren: * in the midst of the church will I praise thee.
21:24 Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: * all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him.
21:25 Let all the seed of Israel fear him: * because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man.
21:25 Neither hath he turned away his face from me: * and when I cried to him he heard me.
21:26 With thee is my praise in a great church: * I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him.
21:27 The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: * their hearts shall live for ever and ever.
21:28 All the ends of the earth * shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord:
21:28 And all the kindreds of the Gentiles * shall adore in his sight.
21:29 For the kingdom is the Lord’s; * and he shall have dominion over the nations.
21:30 All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: * all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him.
21:31 And to him my soul shall live: * and my seed shall serve him.
21:32 There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: * and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

22:3 Dedúxit me super sémitas justítiæ, * propter nomen suum.
22:4 Nam, et si ambulávero in médio umbræ mortis, non timébo mala: * quóniam tu mecum es.
22:4 Virga tua, et báculus tuus: * ipsa me consoláta sunt.
22:5 Parásti in conspéctu meo mensam, * advérsus eos, qui tríbulant me.
22:5 Impinguásti in óleo caput meum: * et calix meus inébrians quam præclárus est!

22:3 He hath led me on the paths of justice, * for his own name’s sake.
22:4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, * for thou art with me.
22:4 Thy rod and thy staff, * they have comforted me.
22:5 Thou hast prepared a table before me * against them that afflict me.

Psalm 30 [11]
30:2 In thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: * deliver me in thy justice.
30:3 Bow down thy ear to me: * make haste to deliver me.
30:3 Be thou unto me a God, a protector, and a house of refuge, * to save me.
30:4 For thou art my strength and my refuge; * and for thy name’s sake thou wilt lead me, and nourish me.
30:5 Thou wilt bring me out of this snare, which they have hidden for me: * for thou art my protector.
30:6 Into thy hands I commend my spirit: * thou hast redeemed me, O Lord, the God of truth.
30:7 Thou hast hated them that regard vanities, * to no purpose.
30:7 But I have hoped in the Lord: * I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy.
30:8 For thou hast regarded my humility, * thou hast saved my soul out of distresses.
30:9 And thou hast not shut me up in the hands of the enemy: * thou hast set my feet in a spacious place.
30:10 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am afflicted: * my eye is troubled with wrath, my soul, and my belly:
30:11 For my life is wasted with grief: * and my years in sighs.
30:11 My strength is weakened through poverty * and my bones are disturbed.
30:12 I am become a reproach among all my enemies, and very much to my neighbours; * and a fear to my acquaintance.
30:12 They that saw me without fled from me. * I am forgotten as one dead from the heart.
30:13 I am become as a vessel that is destroyed. * For I have heard the blame of many that dwell round about.
30:14 While they assembled together against me, * they consulted to take away my life.
30:15 But I have put my trust in thee, O Lord: * I said: Thou art my God. My lots are in thy hands.
30:16 Deliver me out of the hands of my enemies; * and from them that persecute me
30:17 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy mercy. * Let me not be confounded, O Lord, for I have called upon thee.
30:18 Let the wicked be ashamed, and be brought down to hell. * Let deceitful lips be made dumb.
30:19 Which speak iniquity against the just, * with pride and abuse.
30:20 How great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord, * which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee!
30:20 Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, * in the sight of the sons of men.
30:21 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy face, * from the disturbance of men.
30:21 Thou shalt protect them in thy tabernacle * from the contradiction of tongues.
30:22 Blessed be the Lord, * for he hath shewn his wonderful mercy to me in a fortified city.
30:23 But I said in the excess of my mind: * I am cast away from before thy eyes.
30:23 Therefore thou hast heard the voice of my prayer, * when I cried to thee.
30:24 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: * for the Lord will require truth, and will repay them abundantly that act proudly.
30:25 Do ye manfully, and let your heart be strengthened, * all ye that hope in the Lord.

Reading 5
From the Sermon of St. Basil the Great, (Archbishop of Caesarea-in-Pontus,) upon the Thirty-third Psalm.

Whenever the desire to sin cometh over thee, I would that thou couldest think of the awful and overwhelming judgment-seat of Christ. There the Judge shall sit upon a throne high and lifted up. Every creature shall stand before Him, quaking because of the glory of His presence. There are we to be led up, one by one, to give account for those things which we have done in life.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem;
* Which shall never hold their peace day nor night, to praise the name of the Lord.
V. They shall proclaim My might unto the nations, and declare My glory unto the Gentiles.
R. Which shall never hold their peace day nor night, to praise the name of the Lord.

Presently there will be found, by the sides of those who have in life wrought much evil, dreadful and hideous angels with faces of fire, and burning breath, appointed thereto, and showing their evil will, in appearance like the night, in their despair and hatred of mankind.

Reading 7
Think again of the bottomless pit, the impenetrable darkness, the lightless fire, burning, but not glowing the poisonous mass of worms, preying upon the flesh, ever feeding, and never filled, causing by their gnawing unbearable agony lastly, the greatest punishment of all, shame and confusion for ever. Have a dread of these things, and let that dread correct thee, and be as a curb to thy mind to hold it in from the hankering after sin.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. We looked for peace, and it came not we asked for good, and behold trouble. We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness.

Hunc timórem Dómini se docturum prophéta promisit. Docére autem non simpliciter promisit, sed eos qui eum audíre volúerint: non eos qui longius prolapsi sunt, sed qui salútem appeténtes accurrunt: non alienos a promissiónibus, sed ex baptismate filiórum adoptiónis verbo ipsi consiliatos atque conjunctos. Proptérea, Veníte, inquit, hoc est, per bona ópera accédite ad me, fílii, quippe qui per regeneratiónem fílii lucis effici digni facti estis: audíte, qui aures cordis habetis apértas; timórem Dómini docébo vos: illum scilicet, quem paulo ante oratióne nostra descrípsimus.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Angústiæ mihi sunt úndique, et quid éligam ignóro;
* Mélius est mihi incídere in manus hóminum, quam derelínquere legem Dei mei.

R. Mélius est mihi incídere in manus hóminum, quam derelínquere legem Dei mei.

Reading 8
This fear of the Lord the Prophet hath promised to teach. But he hath not promised to teach it to all, but only to such as will hear him not to such as have fallen far away, but to such as run to him, hungry for salvation, not to such as have no part in the promises, but to such as by baptism are born children of adoption, set at peace and oneness with the Word. Come, ye children, saith he, that is to say, Draw nigh unto me by good works, all ye who by the new birth have become the worthy children of light, hearken unto me, all ye who have the ears of your heart opened, I will teach you the fear of the Lord, even the fear of that Being of Whom we have just been speaking.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I am straitened on every side, and know not what to choose.
* It is better for me to fall into the hands of men, than to sin against the law of my God.
V. For if I do this thing, it is death unto me and if I do it not, I cannot escape your hands.
R. It is better for me to fall into the hands of men, than to sin against the law of my God.

36:17 Give testimony to them that are thy creatures from the beginning, and raise up the prophecies which the former prophets spoke in thy name.
36:18 Reward them that patiently wait for thee, that thy prophets may be found faithful: and hear the prayers of thy servants,
36:19 According to the blessing of Aaron over thy people, and direct us into the way of justice, and let all know that dwell upon the earth, that thou art God the beholder of all ages.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

R. He will come and save His people.
Pater noster, qui es in cælis, sanctificétur nomen tuum: advéniat regnum tuum: fiat volúntas tua, sicut in cælo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidiánum da nobis hódie: et dimítte nobis débita nostra, sicut et nos dimíttimus debitóribus nostris:

R. Sed líbera nos a malo.
Absolutio. A vínculis peccatórum nostrórum absólvat nos omnípotens et miséricors Dóminus. Amen.

Léctio sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 24:15-35
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Cum vidéritis abominatiónem desolatiónis, quæ dicta est a Daniéle prophéta, stántem in loco sancto: qui legit, intéllegat. Et réliqua.

Homilía sancti Hierónymi Presbýteri
Liber 4 Comment. in cap. 24 Matthæi
Quando ad intellegéntiam provocámur, mýsticum monstrátur esse quod dictum est. Légimus autem in Daniéle hoc modo: Et in dimídio hebdómadis auferétur sacrifícium et libámina; et in templo abominátio desolatiónum erit, usque ad consummatiónem témporis, et consummátio dábitur super solitúdinem.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Laudábilis pópulus,
* Quem Dóminus exercítuum benedíxit dicens: Opus mánuum meárum tu es, heréditas mea Israël.
V. Beáta gens, cujus est Dóminus Deus, pópulus eléctus in hereditátem.
R. Quem Dóminus exercítuum benedíxit dicens: Opus mánuum meárum tu es, heréditas mea Israël.

V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May the Gospel's holy lection be our safety and protection. Amen.

Reading 9
From the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 24:15-35
At that time, Jesus said unto his disciples: When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, stand in the Holy Place, (whoso readeth, let him understand.) And so on.

Homily by St. Jerome, Priest at Bethlehem.
Bk. IV Comm. on Matth. XXIV
This injunction to whoso readeth, to understand, showeth that there is here something mysterious. In Daniel we read as followeth: "And in the midst of the week the sacrifice and the oblations shall be taken away and in the temple there shall be the abomination of desolation, even until the consummation of the time and a consummation shall be given to the desolation." ix. 27.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Blessed is the people
* Whom the Lord of hosts hath blessed, saying O Israel thou art the work of Mine own hands, thou art Mine own inheritance.
V. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.
R. Whom the Lord of hosts hath blessed, saying O Israel thou art the work of Mine own hands, thou art Mine own inheritance.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ille nos benedícat, qui sine fine vivit et regnat. Amen.

Lectio 10
De hoc et Apóstolus lóquitur, quod homo iniquitátis, et adversárius elevándus sit contra omne quod dícitur Deus et cólitur; ita ut áudeat stáre in templo Dei, et osténdere quod ipse sit Deus: cujus advéntus secúndum operatiónem sátanæ déstruat eos, et ad Dei solitúdinem rédigat, qui se suscéperint.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Misit Dóminus Angelum suum et conclúsit ora leónum,
* Et non contaminavérunt, quia coram eo injustítia invénta non est in me.
V. Misit Deus misericórdiam suam et veritátem suam: ánimam meam erípuit de médio catulórum leónum.
R. Et non contaminavérunt, quia coram eo injustítia invénta non est in me.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May His blessing be upon us who doth live and reign for ever. Amen.

Reading 10
It is of this same thing that the Apostle speaketh, when he saith that a man of iniquity, even an adversary, shall be exalted against whatsoever is called God, or is worshipped so that he shall even dare to stand in the temple of God, and to show himself as God whose coming shall, according to the working of Satan, destroy and banish away from God all who shall receive him.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. The Lord hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that
* They have not hurt me forasmuch as before Him innocency was found in me.
V. God hath sent forth His mercy and His truth, (and delivered) my soul from among the lions' whelps.
R. They have not hurt me forasmuch as before Him innocency was found in me.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Divínum auxílium máneat semper nobíscum. Amen.

Lectio 11
Potest autem simpliciter aut de Antichristo accipi, aut de imagine Cæsaris, quam Pilátus pósuit in templo, aut de Hadriáni equestri státua, quæ in ipso sancto sanctórum loco usque in præséntem diem stetit. Abominátio quoque secúndum veterem Scripturam idolum nuncupátur; et idcirco additur, desolatiónis, quod in desolato templo atque destructo idolum positum sit.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Indicábo tibi, homo, quid sit bonum aut quid Dóminus requírat a te:
* Fácere judícium et justítiam et sollícitum ambuláre cum Deo tuo.
V. Spera in Dómino, et fac bonitátem, et inhábita terram.
R. Fácere judícium et justítiam et sollícitum ambuláre cum Deo tuo.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. God's most mighty strength alway be His people's staff and stay. Amen.

Reading 11
This prophecy may be understood either (first) simply of Antichrist, (secondly) of the statue of Caesar, which Pilate set up in the Temple, or (thirdly) of the statue of Hadrian on horse-back, which hath stood, even until our own day, upon the site of the Holy of Holies. In the Scriptures of the Old Testament "abomination" is a word very often used for an idol, and the farther title "of desolation" is added to identify an idol erected upon the site of the desolate and ruined temple.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. I will show thee, O man, what is good, and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to
* Do justice and judgment, and to walk humbly with thy God.
V. Trust in the Lord, and do good, and dwell in the land.
R. Do justice and judgment, and walk humbly with thy God.
V. Jube, domne, benedícere.
Benedictio. Ad societátem cívium supernórum perdúcat nos Rex Angelórum. Amen.

Lectio 12
Abominátio desolatiónis intelligi potest et omne dogma perversum: quod cum vidérimus stare in loco sancto, hoc est in Ecclésia, et se osténdere Deum, debémus fugere de Judæa ad montes, hoc est, dimissa occidénte littera, et Judáica pravitáte, appropinquare móntibus ætérnis, de quibus illúminat mirabíliter Deus; et esse in tecto et in dómate, quo non possint igníta diaboli jácula perveníre, nec descéndere et tóllere aliquid de domo conversatiónis prístinæ, nec quærere quæ retrórsum sunt, sed magis sérere in agro spiritualium Scripturárum, ut fructus capiámus ex eo; nec tóllere álteram túnicam, quam Apóstoli habére prohibentur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

R. Duo Séraphim clamábant alter ad álterum:
* Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth: * Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
V. Tres sunt qui testimónium dant in cælo: Pater, Verbum, et Spíritus Sanctus: et hi tres unum sunt.
R. Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus Dóminus Deus Sábaoth.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Plena est omnis terra glória ejus.
V. Grant, Lord, a blessing.
Benediction. May He that is the Angels' King to that high realm His people bring. Amen.

Reading 12
But we may also understand by the abomination of desolation, any bad doctrine and when we see such a thing get a standing in the Holy Place, that is, in the Church, and showing itself that it is God, that is, pretending that it is His revealed truth, then will be the time when it will be our duty to flee from Judea into the mountains, that is to say, to leave the letter, which passeth away, and all guise of Jewish superstition, and to hie us unto the everlasting hills, from whence God doth right wondrously cause His light to shine forth. Ps. lxxv. 5. Then will it be our duty to find ourselves under a roof and in an house, wherethrough the fiery darts of the wicked one can never pierce to smite us, and not to come down to take anything out of the house of our old conversation, or to have regard unto those things which are behind but rather to sow in the field of the spiritual Scriptures, that we may reap thereof a bountiful harvest neither to have two coats, that thing forbidden to Apostles. Matth. x. 10.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. One Seraph cried unto another:
* Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory.
V. There are Three That bear record in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these Three are One.
R. Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God of hosts.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. The whole earth is full of His glory.

O Lord, in thee have I trusted, * let me never be confounded.
Sequéntia +︎ sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum
Matt 24:15-35
R. Glória tibi, Dómine.
In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: Cum vidéritis abominatiónem desolatiónis, quæ dicta est a Daniéle Prophéta, stantem in loco sancto: qui legit, intélligat: tunc qui in Judǽa sunt, fúgiant ad montes: et qui in tecto, non descéndat tóllere áliquid de domo sua: et qui in agro, non revertátur tóllere túnicam suam. Væ autem prægnántibus et nutriéntibus in illis diébus. Oráte autem, ut non fiat fuga vestra in híeme vel sábbato. Erit enim tunc tribulátio magna, qualis non fuit ab inítio mundi usque modo, neque fiet. Et nisi breviáti fuíssent dies illi, non fíeret salva omnis caro: sed propter eléctos breviabúntur dies illi. Tunc si quis vobis díxerit: Ecce, hic est Christus, aut illic: nolíte crédere. Surgent enim pseudochrísti et pseudoprophétæ, et dabunt signa magna et prodígia, ita ut in errórem inducántur - si fíeri potest - étiam elécti. Ecce, prædíxi vobis. Si ergo díxerint vobis: Ecce, in desérto est, nolíte exíre: ecce, in penetrálibus, nolíte crédere. Sicut enim fulgur exit ab Oriénte et paret usque in Occidéntem: ita erit et advéntus Fílii hóminis. Ubicúmque fúerit corpus, illic congregabúntur et áquilæ. Statim autem post tribulatiónem diérum illórum sol obscurábitur, et luna non dabit lumen suum, et stellæ cadent de cælo, et virtútes cœlórum commovebúntur: et tunc parébit signum Fílii hóminis in cœlo: et tunc plangent omnes tribus terræ: et vidébunt Fílium hóminis veniéntem in núbibus cæli cum virtúte multa et majestáte. Et mittet Angelos suos cum tuba et voce magna: et congregábunt eléctos ejus a quátuor ventis, a summis cœlórum usque ad términos eórum. Ab árbore autem fici díscite parábolam: Cum jam ramus ejus tener fúerit et fólia nata, scitis, quia prope est æstas: ita et vos cum vidéritis hæc ómnia, scitóte, quia prope est in jánuis. Amen, dico vobis, quia non præteríbit generátio hæc, donec ómnia hæc fiant. Cœlum et terra transíbunt, verba autem mea non præteríbunt.
R. Amen

Te decet laus, te decet hymnus: tibi glória Deo Patri, et Fílio, cum Spíritu Sancto in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
Continuation +︎ of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
Matt 24:15-35
R. Glory be to you, O Lord.
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: When you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place - let him who reads understand - then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything from his house; and let him who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. But woe to those who are with child, or have infants at the breast in those days! But pray that your flight may not be in the winter, or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, nor will be. And unless those days had been shortened, no living creature would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. Then if anyone say to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told it to you beforehand. If therefore they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the desert,’ do not go forth; ‘Behold, He is in the inner chambers,’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes forth from the east and shines even to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Wherever the body is, there will the eagles be gathered together. But immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give her light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. And then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven; and then will all tribes of the earth mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with great power and majesty. And He will send forth His angels with a trumpet and a great sound, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Now from the fig tree learn this parable. When its branch is now tender, and the leaves break forth, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the door. Amen I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things have been accomplished. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
R. Amen

Thou art worthy of praise, thou art worthy of hymns, to Thee be glory: to God the Father and the Son with the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
