The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

1 Chronicles 16:7-27

7 Then on that day David delivered first this psalm, to thank the LORD, into the hand of Asaph and his brethren:

8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon His name;
make known His deeds among the people.
9 Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him;
talk ye of all His wondrous works.
10 Glory ye in His holy name;
let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
11 Seek the LORD and His strength;
seek His face continually.
12 Remember His marvelous works that He hath done,
His wonders and the judgments of His mouth,
13 O ye seed of Israel His servant,
ye children of Jacob, His chosen ones!

14 He is the LORD our God;
His judgments are in all the earth.
15 Be ye mindful always of His covenant,
the word which He commanded to a thousand generations,
16 even of the covenant which He made with Abraham,
and of His oath unto Isaac;
17 and hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law,
and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
18 saying, "Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance,"
19 when ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

20 And when they went from nation to nation,
and from one kingdom to another people,
21 He suffered no man do them wrong;
yea, He reproved kings for their sakes,
22 saying, "Touch not Mine anointed,
and do My prophets no harm."

23 Sing unto the LORD, all the earth;
show forth from day to day His salvation.
24 Declare His glory among the heathen,
His marvelous works among all nations.
25 For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
He also is to be feared above all gods.
26 For all the gods of the people are idols;
but the LORD made the heavens.
27 Glory and honor are in His presence;
strength and gladness are in His place.

Luke 2:1-14

1 And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, unto the City of David which is called Bethlehem (because he was of the house and lineage of David) 5 to be taxed with Mary, his espoused wife, who was great with child. 6 And so it was that while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. 7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger."

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 "Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will toward men!"

Ephesians 4:17-24 

17 This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them because of the blindness of their heart, 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over unto lasciviousness to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ, 21 if so it be that ye have heard Him and have been taught by Him as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that ye put off, concerning your former manner of living, the old man which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that ye put on that new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

2 Chronicles 9:30-31

30 And Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years. 31 And Solomon slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the City of David his father; and Rehoboam his son reigned in his stead.

2 Chronicles 10:1-16

1 And Rehoboam went to Shechem, for to Shechem had all Israel come to make him king. 2 And it came to pass, when Jeroboam the son of Nebat (who was in Egypt whither he had fled from the presence of Solomon the king) heard it, that Jeroboam returned out of Egypt. 3 And they sent and called him. So Jeroboam and all Israel came and spoke to Rehoboam, saying, 4 "Thy father made our yoke grievous. Now therefore ease thou somewhat the grievous servitude of thy father and his heavy yoke that he put upon us, and we will serve thee." 5 And he said unto them, "Come again unto me after three days." And the people departed. 

6 And King Rehoboam took counsel with the old men who had stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, saying, "What counsel give ye me to return an answer to this people?" 7 And they spoke unto him, saying, "If thou be kind to this people and please them, and speak good words to them, they will be thy servants for ever." 8 But he forsook the counsel which the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young men who were brought up with him, who stood before him. 9 And he said unto them, "What advice give ye that we may return an answer to this people who have spoken to me, saying, `Ease somewhat the yoke that thy father put upon us'?" 10 And the young men who were brought up with him spoke unto him, saying, "Thus shalt thou answer the people who spoke unto thee, saying, `Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it somewhat lighter for us' -- thus shalt thou say unto them, `My little finger shall be thicker than my father's loins. 11 For whereas my father put a heavy yoke upon you, I will put more on your yoke. My father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.'"

12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king bade, saying, "Come again to me on the third day." 13 And the king answered them roughly; and King Rehoboam forsook the counsel of the old men, 14 and answered them according to the advice of the young men, saying, "My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add thereto: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions!" 15 So the king hearkened not unto the people, for the cause was of God, that the LORD might perform His word which He spoke by the hand of Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat. 

16 And when all Israel saw that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered the king, saying, "What portion have we in David? We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse. Every man to your tents, O Israel! And now, David, see to thine own house!" So all Israel went to their tents.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 17:6

Children's children are the crown of old men, 
and the glory of children are their fathers.
