Excursus on the Choir Offices of the Early Church.
FOR THOSE WHOM THE LORD LOVES HE DISCIPLINES, AND HE SCOURGES EVERY SON WHOM HE RECEIVES."
For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.
Before I was afflicted I went astray, But now I keep Your word.
It is good for me that I was afflicted, That I may learn Your statutes.
O may Your lovingkindness comfort me, According to Your word to Your servant.
You have commanded Your testimonies in righteousness And exceeding faithfulness.
"O Lord, by these things men live, And in all these is the life of my spirit; O restore me to health and let me live!
