WE beseech thee, Almighty God, mercifully to
thy people: that by thy great goodness they may be governed and
evermore, both in body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Heb. 9. 11
CHRIST being come an High Priest of good things
by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands; that is
to say, not of this building; neither by the blood of goats and calves;
but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having
eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of
and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the
of the flesh; how much more shall the blood of Christ, who, through the
eternal Spirit, offered himself without spot to God, purge your
from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is
the Mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the
of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which
called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

Matthew 20. 20
THEN came to him the mother of Zebedee's
her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these
my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the
in thy kingdom. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye
ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and
be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say
him, We are able. And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed
my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but
