The Lectionary According to the Common CalendarPsalm 59

1 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God;
defend me from them that rise up against me.
2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity,
and save me from bloody men.
3 For lo, they lie in wait for my soul;
the mighty are gathered against me, not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
4 They run and prepare themselves though I am not at fault.
Awake to help me, and behold!

5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen;
be not merciful to any wicked transgressors.
6 They return at evening;
they make a noise like a dog and go round about the city.
7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips;
"For who," say they, "doth hear?"
8 But Thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them;
Thou shalt hold all the heathen in derision.
9 Because of his strength, I will wait upon Thee;
for God is my defense.
10 The God of my mercy shall go before me;
God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.

11 Slay them not, lest my people forget;
scatter them by Thy power and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride,
and for the cursing and lying which they speak.
13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be;
and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth.
14 And at evening let them return,
and let them make a noise like a dog and go round about the city.
15 Let them wander up and down for meat,
and grumble if they be not satisfied.

16 But I will sing of Thy power, yea, I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning;
for Thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
17 Unto Thee, O my Strength, will I sing;
for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.

Matthew 19:27-30

27 Then Peter answered and said unto Him, "Behold, we have forsaken all and followed Thee. What shall we have therefore?" 28 And Jesus said unto them,

"Verily I say unto you, that ye that have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit on the throne of His glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone that hath forsaken houses or brethren or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first.

Romans 3:21-31

21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, which is by faith of Jesus Christ, unto all and upon all those who believe. For there is no difference, 23 for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. 25 Him God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 to declare, I say, at this time, His righteousness: that He might be just, and the justifier of him that believeth in Jesus.

27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? Nay, but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. 29 Is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also, 30 seeing it is one God who shall justify the Circumcision by faith, and Uncircumcision through faith. 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid! Yea, we establish the law.

Leviticus 20:14-27

14"`And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness. They shall be burned with fire, both he and they, that there be no wickedness among you.

15 "`And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death; and ye shall slay the beast. 16 And if a woman approach unto any beast and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman and the beast. They shall surely be put to death: their blood shall be upon them.

17 "`And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness and she see his nakedness, it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people. He hath uncovered his sister's nakedness: he shall bear his iniquity.

18 "`And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness and shall uncover her nakedness, he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood; and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. 19 And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister nor of thy father's sister, for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. 20 And if a man shall lie with his uncle's wife, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness. They shall bear their sin: they shall die childless. 21 And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing. He hath uncovered his brother's nakedness: they shall be childless.

22 "`Ye shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and do them, that the land whither I bring you to dwell therein spew you not out. 23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation which I cast out before you; for they committed all these things, and therefore I abhorred them. 24 But I have said unto you, "Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey." I am the LORD your God, who have separated you from other people. 25 Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean; and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And ye shall be holy unto Me; for I the LORD am holy and have severed you from other people, that ye should be Mine.

27 "`A man also or woman who hath a familiar spirit, or who is a wizard, shall surely be put to death. They shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.'"

Words of Wisdom -  Proverbs 10:11-12

The mouth of the righteous man is a well of life,
but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
Hatred stirreth up strifes,
but love covereth all sins.
