The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

Psalm 21 

1 The king shall rejoice in Thy strength, O LORD;
and in Thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 
2 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, 
and hast not withheld the request of his lips.

3 For Thou goest before him with the blessings of goodness; 
Thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head. 
4 He asked life of Thee and Thou gavest it to him, 
even length of days for ever and ever. 
5 His glory is great in Thy salvation; 
honor and majesty hast Thou laid upon him. 
6 For Thou hast made him most blessed for ever; 
Thou hast made him exceeding glad with Thy countenance. 
7 For the king trusteth in the LORD,
and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.

8 Thine hand shall find out all Thine enemies; 
Thy right hand shall find out those that hate Thee. 
9 Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of Thine anger; 
the LORD shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them. 
10 Their fruit shalt Thou destroy from the earth, a
nd their seed from among the children of men. 
11 For they intended evil against Thee; 
they contrived a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform. 
12 Therefore shalt Thou make them turn their back 
when Thou shalt ready Thine arrows upon Thy strings against the face of them.

13 Be Thou exalted, LORD, in Thine own strength; 
so will we sing and praise Thy power!

Luke 9:28-36

28 And it came to pass about eight days after these sayings, He took Peter and John and James, and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 And as He prayed, the appearance of His countenance was altered, and His raiment was white and glistening. 30 And behold, there talked with Him two men, who were Moses and Elijah, 31 who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He should accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 But Peter and those who were with him were heavy with sleep. And when they were awake, they saw His glory and the two men who stood with Him. 33 And it came to pass as they departed from Him, Peter said unto Jesus, "Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for Thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah" -- not knowing what he was saying. 34 While he thus spoke, there came a cloud and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered into the cloud. 35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, "THIS IS MY BELOVED SON. HEAR HIM!" 36 And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.

1 Thessalonians 3 

1 Therefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left in Athens alone, 2 and sent Timothy, our brother and minister of God and our fellow laborer in the Gospel of Christ, to establish you and to comfort you concerning your faith, 3 that no man should be moved by these afflictions; for you yourselves know that thereunto we are appointed. 4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you beforehand that we should suffer tribulation, even as it came to pass, as ye know. 5 For this cause, when I could no longer forbear it, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter might have tempted you, and our labor be in vain. 

6 But now when Timothy came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and charity, and that ye have a good remembrance of us always and desire greatly to see us (as we also desire to see you), 7 therefore brethren, we were comforted concerning you in all our affliction and distress by your faith; 8 for now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord. 9 For what thanks can we render to God again for you for all the joy wherewith we rejoice for your sakes before our God, 10 as we pray earnestly night and day that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith? 

11 Now may God Himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ direct our way unto you. 12 And may the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another and toward all men, even as we do toward you, 13 to the end that He may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints. 

Isaiah 1:10-20

10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom;
give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah:
11 "To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me?" saith the LORD.
"I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts;
and I delight not in the blood of bullocks,
or of lambs or of hegoats.
12 When you come to appear before Me,
who hath required this from your hand, to tread My courts?
13 Bring no more vain oblations;
incense is an abomination unto Me.
The new moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot endure.
It is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hateth;
they are a trouble unto Me, I am weary of bearing them.
15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you;
yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood.
16 Wash you, make you clean,
put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes.
Cease to do evil,
17 learn to do well.
Seek judgment, relieve the oppressed;
judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 "Come now, and let us reason together,"
saith the LORD.
"Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land;
20 but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword"; for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 20:29

The glory of young men is their strength, 
and the beauty of old men is the gray head.
