The Order how the rest of holy scripture (beside the Psalter) is appointed
to be read.
The Old Testament is appointed for the first Lessons at Morning and Evening Prayer, and shall be read through every year once, except certain Books and Chapters, which be least edifying, and might best be spared, and therefore are left unread.
The New Testament is appointed for the Second Lessons at Morning and Evening Prayer, and shall be read over orderly every year thrice, beside the Epistles and Gospels: except the Apocalypse, out of the which there be only certain Lessons appointed upon divers Proper Feasts.
And to know what Lessons shall be read every day: Find the day of the Month in the Calendar following, and there ye shall perceive the Books and Chapters that shall be read for the Lessons both at Morning and Evening Prayer.
And here is to be noted, that whensoever there be any proper Psalms, or Lessons, appointed for the Sundays, or for any Feast, moveable or unmoveable: Then the Psalms and Lessons appointed in the Calendar, shall be omitted for that time.
Ye must note also, that the Collect, Epistle, and Gospel, appointed for the Sunday, shall serve all the week after, except there fall some Feast that hath his proper.
When the years of our Lord may be divided into four even parts, which is every fourth year: then the Sunday letter leapeth, and that year the Psalms and Lessons which serve for the .xxiii. day of February shall be read again the day following, except it be Sunday, which hath proper Lessons of the Old Testament, appointed in the Table serving to that purpose.
Also, wheresoever the beginning of any Lesson, Epistle, or Gospel, is not expressed, there ye must begin at the beginning of the Chapter.
And wheresoever is not expressed how far shall be read, there shall you read to the end of the Chapter.
Item, so oft as the first Chapter of Saint Mathie' is read either for Lesson or Gospel : ye shall begin the same at. The birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise. &c. And the third Chapter of Saint Luke's Gospel shall be read unto. So that he was supposed to be the Son of Joseph.
( Proper Lessons to be read for the first Lessons, both at Morning prayer' and Evening prayer, on the Sundays throughout the Year, and for some also the
