The Pauline and the the psalm--all the Church readings, in their structure right now, when they are chanted they are hymns...but than they are READ--explained to those who do not understand coptic (even thoo we never say the entire coptic text). the reading and the hymn are 2 different.
In the second hoos, it is from the Bible--it is psalm 136 (135 in coptic). i sent you the link. do you see 'alleluia' any where in that text?
in the first hoos--it is taken straight from Exodus. The last part in the hoos (the one rit before the lobsh), is not in the Bible reading. get an psalmody that has references and get the exact reference of the entire hoos and go search for it in the Bible....the last part will not be there in that order.
