The Lord’s Prayer.

 

“Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come: thy will be done on earth as it is

in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread: and for-

give us our trespasses, as we forgive those who tres-

pass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but

deliver us from evil: for thine is the kingdom, and the

power, and the glory forever, Amen.”

(II Chronicles, 6th: 1-2, 18-21, 40-42. 7th: 1-4

Hebrews, 10th: 19-26)

 

Then said Solomon, The Lord hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.  ¶ But I have built a house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling forever. ¶  But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth?  Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens can not contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!  ¶ Have respect therefore to the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication; O Lord my God; to hearken unto the cry and the prayer which thy servant prayeth before thee:  ¶ That thine eyes may be open upon this house day and night, upon the place whereof thou hast said that thou wouldest put thy name there; to hearken unto the prayer which thy servant prayeth toward this place.  ¶ Hearken therefore unto the supplications of thy servant; and of thy people Israel which they shall make toward this place: hear thou from thy dwelling-place, even from heaven; and when thou hearest, forgive.  ¶ Now, my God, lete, I beseech thee, thine eyes be open, and leet thine ears be attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.  ¶ Now therefore arise, O Lord God, into thy resting place, thou, and the ark of thy strength: let thy priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness.  ¶ O Lord God, turn not away the face of thine anointed: remember the mercies of David thy servant.  ¶ Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the house.  ¶ And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house.  ¶ And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house.  ¶ And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth forever.  ¶ Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord.

¶ Having, therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, ¶ By a new and living way which he hath consecrated for us, through the vail, that is to say his flesh.  ¶ And having a high priest over the house of God; ¶ Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.  ¶ Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised; ¶ And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: ¶ Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.  ¶ For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.

                          I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the

                               house of the Lord.

 

                          Our feet shall stand within they gates, O Jerusalem.

 

                          Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

 

                          Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, unto the tes-

                               timony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the

                               Lord.

 

                          For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the

                               house of David.

 

                          Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that

                               love thee.

 

                          Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

 

                         For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say,

                              Peace be within thee.

 

                         Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.
