Every faithful man and women, when they have risen from sleep in the morning, before they touch any work at all, should wash their hands and pray to God, and so go to their work. But if instruction in the word of God takes place, each one should choose to go to that place, reckoning in his heart that it is God whom he hears in the one who instructs. For he who prays in the church will be able to pass by the wickedness of the day. He who is God-fearing should think it a great loss if he does not go to the place where instruction is given, and especially if he can read, or if a teacher comes. Let none of you be late in the church, the place where teaching is given. Then it shall be given to the speaker to say things profitable to all, and you will hear things of which you would not think, and profit from things which the Holy Spirit will give you through the one who instructs. In this way your faith will be strengthened in regard to matters about which you heard. What you ought to do in your house will also be told in that place. Therefore let everyone hurry in coming to the assembly, the place where the Holy Spirit abounds. And if there is a day on which there is no instruction, and each one is in the house, he should take a holy book and read in it as much as seems profitable.
