LESSON. Fer vii. 1, 7. I N those days : The word

of the Lord came to me, saying: Stand in the gate of the house of the Lord, and publish what I tell thee, saying: Hear the word of the Lord all you of Juda, who go in at these gates to adore the Lord.

Trust not in lying words, saying : This is the temple a of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.

I will dwell with you in this place, in the land I have given to your fathers for ever and ever, faith the Lord Almighty.

And Mose's and Aaron going from the people, went into the tabernacle of the covenant, and, falling proftrate on the ground, cried out to the Lord, and said: Lord God, hear the cry of this people, and open to them thy treasure, a fountain of living water, that, being satisfied, they may leave off their murmuring. And the glory of the Lord appeared over them. And the Lord spoke to Mofes, saying: Take thy rod, and do thou and Aaron thy brother assemble the people together, and speak to the rock in their presence, and it shall yield water. And when thou haft brought forth water out of the rock, all the people shall drink, as likewise their cattle. Moses therefore the rod which was efore the Lord, as he had commanded him, and having af

And when Mofes had lifted up his hand, and struck twice with the rod, water came forth in great plenty, so that both the people and their cattle drank. And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron : Because you have not believed me, to sanctify me before the children of Israel, you shall not bring this people into the land, which I will give them. This is the water of contradiction, where the children of Israel murmured against the Lord, and he was fanctified in them.
