The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

Psalm 77

1 I cried unto God with my voice,
even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear unto me.
2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord;
my sore ran in the night and ceased not; my soul refused to be comforted.
3 I remembered God, and was troubled;
I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.

4 Thou holdest mine eyes awake;
I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
5 I have considered the days of old,
the years of ancient times.
6 I call to remembrance my song in the night;
I commune with mine own heart, and my spirit makes diligent search.

7 "Will the Lord cast off for ever?
And will He be favorable no more?
8 Is His mercy clean gone for ever?
Doth His promise fail for evermore?
9 Hath God forgotten to be gracious?
Hath He in anger shut up His tender mercies?"

10 And I said, "This is my infirmity,
but I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High."
11 I will remember the works of the LORD;
surely I will remember Thy wonders of old.
12 I will meditate also on all of Thy work,
and talk of Thy doings.

13 Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary.
Who is so great a god as our God?
14 Thou art the God that doest wonders;
Thou hast declared Thy strength among the people.
15 Thou hast with Thine arm redeemed Thy people,
the sons of Jacob and Joseph.

16 The waters saw Thee, O God, the waters saw Thee;
they were afraid; the depths also were troubled.
17 The clouds poured out water, the skies sent out a sound;
Thine arrows also went abroad.
18 The voice of Thy thunder was in the heavens,
the lightnings lightened the world; the earth trembled and shook.
19 Thy way is in the sea, and Thy path in the great waters,
and Thy footsteps are not known.
20 Thou didst lead Thy people like a flock
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Matthew 24:29-41

29 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken, 30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and with great glory. 31 And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32 "Now learn a parable of the fig tree: When his branch is yet tender and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh. 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour, knoweth no man, no, not the angels of Heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark 39 and knew not until the flood came and took them all away, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken and the other left.

Romans 13:1-7

1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but from God; the powers that be are ordained by God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God, and those who resist shall receive for themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same, 4 for he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid, for he beareth not the sword in vain; for he is the minister of God, an avenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Therefore ye must be subject not only for wrath, but also for conscience' sake.

6 For, for this cause pay ye tribute also, for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due, custom to whom custom, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

Deuteronomy 10:1-5, 10-22

1 "At that time the LORD said unto me, `Hew thee two tablets of stone like unto the first, and come up unto Me onto the mount, and make thee an ark of wood. 2 And I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets which thou didst break, and thou shalt put them in the ark.' 3 And I made an ark of shittim wood and hewed two tablets of stone like unto the first, and went up onto the mount, having the two tablets in mine hand. 4 And He wrote on the tablets, according to the first writing, the Ten Commandments, which the LORD spoke unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly; and the LORD gave them unto me. 5 And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tablets in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me." 

10 "And I stayed on the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also, and the LORD would not destroy thee. 11 And the LORD said unto me, `Arise, take thy journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land which I swore unto their fathers to give unto them.' 

12 "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, 13 to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command thee this day for thy good? 14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is. 15 Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them; and He chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. 16 Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked. 17 For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty and a fearsome, who regardeth not persons nor taketh reward. 18 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger in giving him food and raiment. 19 Love ye therefore the stranger, for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; Him shalt thou serve, and to Him shalt thou cleave and swear by His name. 21 He is thy praise, and He is thy God, who hath done for thee these great and fearsome things which thine eyes have seen. 22 Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons, and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. 
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow. 
But woe to him that is alone when he falleth, 
for he hath not another to help him up.
