The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

Psalm 37:1-20

1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers,
neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD,
and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD;
trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
6 And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light,
and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall not be;
yea, thou shalt diligently look for his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plotteth against the just,
and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
13 The Lord shall laugh at him,
for He seeth that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn out the sword and have bent their bows to cast down the poor and needy,
and to slay such as be of upright manner of living.
15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart,
and their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man hath
is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright;
and their inheritance shall be for ever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs:
they shall be consumed; into smoke shall they be consumed away.

Matthew 13:24-30

24 Another parable put He forth before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blades had sprung up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, `Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath come the tares?' 28 He said unto them, `An enemy hath done this.' The servants said unto him, `Wilt thou then have us go and gather them up?' 29 But he said, `Nay, lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, "Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn."'"

Acts 18:24-28

24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus. 25 This man was instructed in the Way of the Lord; and being fervent in the Spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John. 26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla had heard him, they took him unto them and expounded unto him the Way of God more perfectly. 27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him. And when he had come, he helped them much who had believed through grace; 28 for he mightily refuted the Jews (and that publicly), showing by the Scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

Acts 19:1-7

1 And it came to pass that while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus; and finding certain disciples, 2 he said unto them, "Have ye received the Holy Ghost, having believed?" And they said unto him, "We have not so much as heard whether there is any Holy Ghost." 3 And he said unto them, "Unto what then were ye baptized?" And they said, "Unto John's baptism." 4 Then said Paul, "John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people that they should believe in Him who should come after him, that is, in Christ Jesus." 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. 7 And there were about twelve men in all.

Exodus 3:1-20

1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the back side of the desert and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush; and he looked and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, "I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt." 4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush and said, "Moses, Moses." And he said, "Here am I." 5 And He said, "Draw not nigh hither. Put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground." 6 Moreover He said, "I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.

7 And the LORD said, "I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. 8 And I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey, unto the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites, and the Amorites and the Perizzites, and the Hivites and the Jebusites. 9 Now therefore behold, the cry of the children of Israel hath come unto Me, and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. 10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt." 11 And Moses said unto God, "Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?" 12 And He said, "Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee that I have sent thee: when thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain."

13 And Moses said unto God, "Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel and shall say unto them, `The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you,' and they shall say to me, `What is His name?' what shall I say unto them?" 14 And God said unto Moses, "I AM THAT I AM." And He said, "Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, `I AM hath sent me unto you.'" 15 And God said moreover unto Moses, "Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel: `The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob hath sent me unto you.' This is My name for ever, and this is My memorial unto all generations. 16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, `The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob appeared unto me, saying, "I have surely visited you and seen that which is done to you in Egypt; 17 and I have said I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites, and the Amorites and the Perizzites, and the Hivites and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey."' 18 And they shall hearken to thy voice; and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, `The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us; and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.' 19 And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand. 20 And I will stretch out My hand and smite Egypt with all My wonders which I will do in the midst thereof; and after that he will let you go.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 4:5-6

Turn not away thine eye from the needy,
and give him no occasion to curse thee;
for is he curse thee in the bitterness of his soul,
his prayer shall be heard by Him that made him.
