EPISTLE. 1 John iïi. 13. 18.--Dearly beloved : Wonder not if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not, abideth in death.

In this we have known the charity of God, because he hath laid down his life for us : and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the feeble, and the blind, and the lame.Aud the servant said: Lord it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.

EPISTLE. i Peter V. 6. 11.—Dearly beloved : Be yon humbled under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in the time of visitation. Casting all your care upon him, for he hath care of you.
