The Table and Kalendar, expressing the Order of the Psalms and Lessons to be said at Matins and Evensong, throughout the year, except certain proper feasts, as the rules following more plainly declare.

To every Month shall be appointed (as concerning this purpose) just xxx days.

To every Month, as concerning this purpose, shall be appointed just xxx days.

And because January and March hath one day above the said number, and February, which is placed between them both, hath only xxviij days, February shall borrow of either of the Months, (of January and March) one day, and so the Psalter, which shall be read in February, must 'begin the last day of January, and 'end the first day of March.

HE Psalter shall be read through once every Month, and because that some Months be longer than some other be, it is thought good to make them even by this means.

And whereas May, July, August, October, and December, hath xxxi days a piece, it is ordered that the same Psalms shall be read the last day of the said Months, which were read the day before, so that the Psalter may begin again the first day of the next 7 Month ensuing.

Now to know what Psalms shall be read every day, look in the Calendar the number that is appointed for the Psalms, and then find the same number in this Table, and upon that number shall you see, what Psalms shall be said at Morning and Evening Prayer.
