Psalms 150:1-6

1 An Alleluia. Praise God in his holies; praise him in the firmament of his power. 2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his abundant majesty: 3 praise him with the sounding trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and kithara: 4 praise him with the tympanum and chorus: praise him with stringed instruments and organs; 5 praise him with soft sounding cymbals: praise him with the cymbals of triumph: 6 let every breath praise the Lord. Psalm 151 N.B. There is in the Septuagint another Psalm, with this title: This Psalm on David was written by himself in prose, when he fought in single combat with Goliath. I was little among my brethren, and the youngest of my father's family. I fed my father's flocks. My hands had made an organ; and my fingers had tuned a psaltery. But who will tell my Lord. My Lord himself heareth. He sent his messenger and took me from my father's flocks and anointed me with anointing oil. My brothers were comely and great; but the Lord did not delight in them. I went out to meet the Philistine, and he cursed me by his idols. But I drew his own sword and cut off his head, and took away reproach from the children of Israel.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was invisible and unfurnished and there was darkness over this abyss; and a breath of God was brought on above the water. 3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God made a separation between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light day; and the darkness he called night. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The first day. 6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water; and let it make a separation between water and water." And it was so. God made the firmament; and God made a separation between the water which was below the firmament

Genesis 1:8-31

8 and the water which was above the firmament. And God called the firmament, heaven. And God saw that it was good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water which is below the heaven be gathered into one receptacle and let the dry land appear." 10 And it was so. The waters which were below the heaven were gathered into their several collections, and the dry land appeared. And God called the dry land, earth; and the collections of the waters he called, seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit bearing tree together with the fruit, the seed of which is in it according to kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth indeed produced the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit tree together with fruit, the seed of which is in it, according to kind, in the earth. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the waters produce moving creatures having life; and winged creatures flying above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." And it was so. 21 God indeed made the great sea monsters and every species of moving animals which the waters produced according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let flying creatures be multiplied on the earth." 23 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce animal life according to kind; four footed beasts and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to kind." And it was so. 25 God indeed made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 29 Moreover God said, "Behold I have given you every seed bearing plant, the sowing seed which is on the whole earth, and every tree which hath in itself the fruit of seminal seed, you shall have for food: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to every reptile on the earth, which hath in it animal life, I have also given every green herb for food." And it was so. 31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.

Exodus 20:8-11

8 Remember the day of the sabbaths to hallow it. 9 Six days labour and do all thy works; 10 but on the seventh day are sabbaths to the Lord thy God; On it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man servant, nor thy maid servant, nor thy ox, nor thy ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor the stranger who sojourneth with thee; 11 for in six days the Lord made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that are in them, and rested on the seventh day: therefore the Lord blessed the seventh day and hallowed it.

Acts 20:7

7 And on the first day of the week when the disciples assembled to break bread, Paul, being about to depart on the morrow, discoursed with them, and lengthened out the discourse till midnight.

Luke 24:1-53

1 And on the first day of the week, they went very early in the morning to the sepulchre, carrying the spices which they had provided. And there were some others with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre, 3 but on going in did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And while they were in perplexity on this account, lo! two men stood by them in glistening robes; 5 at which they being terrified, and inclining their face to the ground, the men said to them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?" 6 He is not here; but is risen. Remember how he spake to you, while he was yet in Galilee, 7 saying, The son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again. 8 Then they remembered his words, 9 and having returned from the sepulchre, they told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 Now it was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the rest with them, who told these things to the apostles. 11 But their words appeared to them like an idle tale, and they did not believe them. 12 Peter indeed, starting up, ran to the sepulchre, and having stooped down, saw nothing but the linens lying there. Upon which he went away home, musing with astonishment on what had happened. 13 And behold, on that same day, two of them were travelling to a village called Emmaus, which was sixty furlongs from Jerusalem; 14 and they conversed with each other on all these occurrences. 15 And while they were conversing and reasoning together, Jesus himself drew near and travelled along with them. 16 But their eyes were withheld from knowing him. 17 And he said to them, What matters are these about which you are conferring with one another on the road, and are sad? 18 Thereupon one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering, said to him, Art thou such a stranger in Jerusalem as not to know the things which have happened there in these days? 19 And he said, What things? They answered him, Those respecting Jesus, the Nazarene, who was a great prophet, mighty in miracles and doctrine before God and all the people 20 how our chief priests and our rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and they have crucified him. 21 Now we were hoping that he is the person who would soon deliver Israel. But indeed with all this, it is now the third day since these things happened. 22 But again some women of our company have astonished us; having been at the sepulchre very early in the morning, 23 and not finding his body, they came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who say that he is alive. 24 Whereupon some of the men who were with us went to the sepulchre, and found matters just as the women said: but him they did not see. 25 Then he said to them, O thoughtless, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory? 27 Then beginning with Moses and proceeding through all the prophets, he explained to them, by all those writings, the things concerning himself. 28 And when they drew near to the village to which they were going, he seemed as intending to go farther. 29 But they pressed him, saying, Stay with us; for it is towards evening. The day is far spent. So he went in to stay with them. 30 And when he was at table with them, he took the loaf, and blessed, and brake, and distributed to them. 31 Whereupon their eyes were opened, and they knew him, and he disappeared from them. 32 Then they said to one another, Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked with us on the road, and while he expounded the scriptures to us? 33 Then rising up immediately, they returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those with them in a throng, 34 affirming that the Lord is indeed risen and hath appeared to Simon. 35 And they told the occurrences on the road, and how he became known to them by his breaking the loaf. 36 And while they were thus speaking, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them; and saith to them, Peace be to you. 37 At which they were affrighted, and, being in terror, thought they saw a spirit; 38 he said to them, Why are you alarmed? And why do groundless surmises arise in your hearts? 39 View my hands and my feet; that it is I myself; handle me and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones as you see me have. 40 While saying this, he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41 And as they were still diffident on account of their joy, and in amaze, he said to them, Have you any food here? 42 Thereupon they gave him a piece of broiled fish and part of a honey comb, 43 which he took and ate before them. 44 Then he said to them, This is what I told you while I was yet with you, That all the things written concerning me in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, must needs be accomplished. 45 Then he opened their minds that they might understand the scriptures, 46 and he said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Christ to suffer and rise from the dead on the third day; 47 and that for his name reformation and remission of sins should be proclaimed to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 Now you are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold I will send upon you what my father promised. And as for you, reside ye in the city of Jerusalem until you are indued with power from on high. 50 After that he led them out to Bethany, and having lifted up his hands, he blessed them; 51 and while he was blessing them, he was parted from them and carried up into heaven; 52 and they, having worshipped him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.

John 20:1-31

1 Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene cometh to the tomb early in the morning, while there was still darkness, and she seeth the stone was taken away from the tomb. 2 Upon which she runneth and cometh to Simon Peter and the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith to them, They have taken the master out of the tomb and we do not know where they have laid him. 3 Thereupon Peter set out with the other disciple, and they went to the tomb. 4 Now they both ran together, but the other disciple out ran Peter and came first to the tomb. 5 And having stooped down he seeth the linen swathings laid by; but did not go in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and he went into the tomb and seeth the linen swathings laid by, 7 and the napkin, which was on his head, not laid with the linen swathings, but folded up in a place by itself. 8 Then the other disciple, who came first to the tomb, went in also and saw and believed. 9 For they did not yet know the scripture, that he was to rise from the dead. 10 Therefore these disciples went their way home again. 11 But Mary stood without, before the tomb, weeping. And as she wept, she stooped down to look into the tomb, 12 and seeth two angels robed in white, sitting one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain: 13 and they say to her, Woman why weepest thou? She saith to them, Because they have taken away my lord, and I know not where they have4 laid him. 14 And, having said this, she turneth about and seeth Jesus standing, but did not know that it is Jesus. 15 Jesus saith to her, Woman, why weepest thou? Whom art thou seeking? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith to him, Sir, if thou hast taken him up; tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus saith to her, Mary! She turning saith to him, Rabboni, that is to say, Teacher. 17 Jesus saith to her, Cling not to me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father: But go to my brethren and tell them, I am about to ascend to my Father and to your Father, and to my God and your God. 18 Mary Magdalene cometh and telleth the disciples that she hath seen the Lord, and that he spoke these things to her. 19 In the evening, on that same day, the first day of the week, the doors where the disciples assembled being shut for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, "Peace be to you." 20 And having said this, he shewed them his hands and his side, and the disciples were rejoiced at seeing the Lord. 21 Then Jesus said to them again, Peace be to you. As the Father sent me so I send you. 22 And having said this he breathed on them, and saith to them, Receive a holy spirit. 23 Whose sins soever you forgive, they are forgiven them, and whose sins soever you retain, they are retained. 24 Now Thomas, one of the twelve, he who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, We have seen the Lord. But he said to them, Unless I see in his hands the print of the nails; and put my finger into the print of the nails; and put this hand of mine into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days, his disciples were again within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst and said, Peace be to you. 27 Then he saith to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger and behold my hands! and reach thy hand and put it in to my side; and be not an unbeliever, but a believer. 28 And Thomas answered and said to him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith to him, Thomas, Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed? Happy they who have not seen me and yet believe. 30 Now Jesus performed many other miracles in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life by his name.

Exodus 12:16

16 And with regard to the first day, it shall be proclaimed holy; and the seventh day shall be holy to you. In them you shall not do any kind of sacrificial service, save that which must be done for every soul. This alone shall be done for you

1 Corinthians 16:2

2 Every first day of the week, let every one of you lay by him, and put into a common treasury, what he can conveniently; that when I come there may be no collection then made.
