The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

Psalm 22:22-31

22 I will declare Thy name unto My brethren;
in the midst of the congregation will I praise Thee.
23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise Him!
All ye the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and fear Him, all ye the seed of Israel.
24 For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
neither hath He hid His face from Him, but when He cried unto Him, He heard.
25 My praise shall be of Thee in the great congregation;
I will pay My vows before them that fear Him.
26 The meek shall eat and be satisfied; they shall praise the LORD that seek Him.
Your heart shall live for ever.
27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD,
and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before Thee.
28 For the kingdom is the LORD'S,
and He is the governor among the nations.
29 All they that are fat upon the earth shall eat and worship;
all they that go down to the dust shall bow before Him, for none can keep alive his own soul.
30 A seed shall serve Him;
it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
31 They shall come and shall declare His righteousness unto a people that shall be born,
that He hath done this.

Luke 9:46-50

46 Then there arose a reasoning among them as to which of them should be greatest. 47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child and set him by Him, 48 and said unto them,

"Whosoever shall receive this child in My name receiveth Me; and whosoever shall receive Me receiveth Him that sent Me. For he that is least among you all, the same shall be great." 49 And John answered and said, "Master, we saw one casting out devils in Thy name, and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us."

50 And Jesus said unto him,

"Forbid him not; for he that is not against us, is for us."

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 

9 But concerning brotherly love, ye have no need that I write unto you, for ye yourselves are taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed ye do it toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more, 11 and that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, 12 that ye may walk honestly toward those who are outsiders, and that ye may have need of nothing.

Isaiah 2

1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:

2 And it shall come to pass in the last days that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established on the top of the mountains,
and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go and say, "Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob;
and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths."
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war anymore.

5 O house of Jacob, come ye
and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
6 For Thou hast forsaken Thy people, the house of Jacob,
because they are replenished from the East,
and are soothsayers like the Philistines;
and they please themselves with the children of strangers.
7 Their land also is full of silver and gold,
neither is there any end of their treasures;
their land is also full of horses,
neither is there any end of their chariots.
8 Their land also is full of idols;
they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.
9 And the lowly man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself;
therefore forgive them not.

10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust,
for fear of the LORD and for the glory of His majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down;
and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty,
and upon every one that is lifted up--and he shall be brought low"
13 and upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up,
and upon all the oaks of Bashan;
14 and upon all the high mountains,
and upon all the hills that are lifted up;
15 and upon every high tower, and upon every fortified wall;
16 and upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant sights.
17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low;
and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day,
18 and the idols He shall utterly abolish.
19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth,
for fear of the LORD and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
20 In that day a man shall cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold
(which he made each one for himself to worship) to the moles and to the bats,
21 to go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks,
for fear of the LORD and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils;
for of what account is he?

Words of Wisdom - Jeremiah 3:22

"Return, ye backsliding children, 
and I will heal your backslidings." 

"Behold, we come unto Thee, for Thou art the LORD our God.
