Jonah is Thrown Overboard

Morning

Our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep.

The chief Shepherd.--I am the good shepherd, and know my [sheep], and am known of mine.--My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.

The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.--I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.--I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up [that which was] broken, and will strengthen that which was sick.--Ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

Evening

The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof.

I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. . . . And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.--Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, and was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.--The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

The God of all grace, . . . hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus.
