The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

Psalm 5

1 Give ear to my words, O LORD;
consider my meditation.
2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King and my God,
for unto Thee will I pray.
3 My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning, O LORD;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee and will look up.

4 For Thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness;
neither shall evil dwell with Thee.
5 The foolish shall not stand in Thy sight;
Thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak lies;
the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

7 But as for me, I will come into Thy house in the multitude of Thy mercy,
and in Thy fear will I worship toward Thy holy temple.
8 Lead me, O LORD, in Thy righteousness because of mine enemies;
make Thy way straight before my face.
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;
their inward part is exceeding wickedness.
Their throat is an open sepulcher;
they flatter with their tongue.
10 Destroy Thou them, O God!
Let them fall by their own counsels.
Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions,
for they have rebelled against Thee.

11 But let all those that put their trust in Thee rejoice;
let them ever shout for joy,
because Thou defendest them;
let them also that love Thy name be joyful in Thee.
12 For Thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous;
with favor wilt Thou compass him about as with a shield.

Luke 5:12-26

12 And it came to pass when He was in a certain city, behold, a man full of leprosy, seeing Jesus, fell on his face and besought Him, saying, "Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean." 13 And He put forth His hand and touched him, saying,

"I will; be thou clean."

And immediately the leprosy departed from him. 14 And He charged him to tell no man, but,

"Go and show thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing according as Moses commanded, as a testimony unto them."

15 But so much the more His fame spread abroad, and great multitudes came together to hear and to be healed by Him of their infirmities. 16 And He withdrew Himself into the wilderness and prayed.

17 And it came to pass on a certain day, as He was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, who had come from every town of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was present to heal them. 18 And behold, men brought in on a bed a man who was taken with a palsy, and they sought means to bring him in and to lay him before Him. 19 And when they could not find a way to bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down on his couch through the tiling into the midst before Jesus.

20 And when He saw their faith, He said unto him,

"Man, thy sins are forgiven thee."

21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this who speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?" 22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answering said unto them,

"What reason ye in your hearts: 23 whether it is easier to say, `Thy sins be forgiven thee,' or to say, `Rise up and walk'? 24 But that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power upon earth to forgive sins,"

He said unto the one sick with the palsy,

"I say unto thee, arise and take up thy couch and go into thine house."

25 And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. 26 And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen strange things today."

Philippians 3:1-16

1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you indeed is not grievous to me, but it is a safeguard for you. 2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the Concision. 3 For we are the Circumcision who worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh-- 4 though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath grounds to trust in the flesh, I have more: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; according to the law, a Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; as to the righteousness before the law, blameless. 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted as loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but dung, that I may win Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having mine own righteousness which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith, 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death, 11 that if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

12 It is not as though I had already attained it, nor were already perfect; but I follow after, that I may apprehend that for which Christ Jesus also apprehended me. 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended it, but this one thing I do: forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let us therefore, as many as would be perfect, be thus minded; and if in anything ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 16 Nevertheless, however much we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Job 5

1 "Call now, if there be any that will answer thee;
and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?
2 For wrath killeth the foolish man,
and envy slayeth the silly one.
3 I have seen the foolish taking root,
but suddenly I cursed his habitation.
4 His children are far from safety, and they are crushed in the gate,
neither is there any to deliver them.
5 His harvest the hungry eateth up and taketh it even out of the thorns,
and the robber swalloweth up their substance.
6 Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust,
neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;
7 yet man is born unto trouble,
as the sparks fly upward.

8 "I would seek unto God,
and unto God would I commit my cause.
9 He doeth great things and unsearchable,
marvelous things without number:
10 He giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields,
11 to set up on high those that are low, that those who mourn may be exalted to safety.
12 He disappointeth the devices of the crafty,
so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
13 He taketh the wise in their own craftiness,
and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.
14 They meet with darkness in the daytime,
and grope in the noonday as in the night.
15 But He saveth the poor from the sword,
from the mouth and from the hand of the mighty.
16 So the poor hath hope,
and iniquity stoppeth her mouth.

17 "Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth;
therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty.
18 For He maketh sore, and bindeth up;
He woundeth, and His hands make whole.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 23:7

Hear, O ye children, the discipline of the mouth: 
he that keepeth it shall never be taken by his lips.
