The Order how the rest of
Holy Scripture is appointed to be read.
The Old Testament is appointed for the first Lessons at Morning, and Evening Prayer; so as the most part thereof will be read every year once as in the Kalendar 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 Apocalyps, out of which there are only certein proper Lessons appointed vpon divers Feasts.
And to know what Lessons shall be read every day, looke for the day of the month in the Kalendar 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 Kalendar; and the Jmoveable, where there is a blank left in the Column of Lessons; The proper Lessons for all which dayes are to be found in the Table of Proper Lessons.
And note, that whensoever proper Psalms, or Lessons are appointed; then the Psalms and Lessons of ordinary course appointed in the Psalter, and Kalendar (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.
