Jesus said to his disciples: These things I command you, that you love one another. If the world hate you, know ye that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I sail to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for my name's sake: because they know hot him that cert me.
If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin: but now they have no excuse for their sin. He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath dove, they would not have sin : but, now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But that the word may be fulfilled, which is written in their law: They hated without cause.

LESSON, Rev. v. 6. 12.-In those days: Behold I, John, saw in the midst of the throne, and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the ancients, a Lamb standing as it were slain, having seven horns and seven éges: which are the seren spirits of God, sent forth into all the earth. And he caine, and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat on the throne. And when he had opened the book, the four living creatures and the four and twenty ancients fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of otlours, which are the prayers of the saintsr And they sung a new canticle, saying: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: because thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God, in thy blood, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us to our God a kingdom and priests, and we shall
reign on the earth. And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne, and the living creatures and the ancients: and the number of them was thousands of thousands, saying, with a loud voice : The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power and divinity, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and benediction, for ever and ever.
