The Order how the Psalter is ap-¶ pointed to be read.
IE Psalter shall be read through once every month, as it is there appointed, both for Morning and Evening Prayer. But in February it shall be read only to the twenty-eighth or twenty-ninth day of the month.
And, whereas January, March, May, July, August, October, and December have One-and-thirty days a-piece; It is ordered, that the same Psalms shall be read the last day of the said months, which were read the day before: So that the Psalter may begin again the first day of the next month ensuing.
And, whereas the 119th Psalm is divided into 22 portions, and is over-long to be read at one time; It is so ordered, that at one time shall not be read above four or five of the said portions.
And at the end of every Psalm, and of every such part of the 119th Psalm, shall be repeated this Hymn,
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.
Note, that the Psalter followeth the Division of the Hebrews, and the Transtation of the great English Bible, set forth and used in the times of King Henry the Eighth, and Edward the Sixth.
The Order how the rest of the holy Scripture is appointed to be read. the first Lessons at Morning and HE Old Testament is appointed for Evening Prayer; so as the most part thereof will be read every year once, as in the Calendar is appointed.
The New Testament is appointed for the second Lessons at Morning and Evening Prayer, and shall be read over orderly every year thrice, besides the Epistles and Gospels; except the Apooalypse, out of which there are only certain proper Lessons appointed upon divers Feasts.
And to know what Lessons shall be read every day, look for the day of the Month in the Calendar following, and there ye shall find the Chapters that shall be read for the Lessons both at Morning and Evening Prayer; except only the Moveable Feasts, which are not in the Calendar, and the Immoveable, where there is a blank left in the Column of Lessons, the Proper Lessons for all which
days are to be found in the Table of Proper Lessons.
Psalms or Lessons are appointed; then And note, that whensoever Proper the Psalms and Lessons of ordinary course appointed in the Psalter and Calendar (if they be different) shall be omitted for that time.
Note also, that the Collect, Epistle, and Gospel, appointed for the Sunday shall serve all the week after, where it is not in this Book otherwise ordered.
