The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar

Psalm 104:24-35

24 O LORD, how manifold are Thy works! In wisdom hast Thou made them all;
the earth is full of Thy riches.
25 So also is this great and wide sea,
wherein are innumerable creeping things, both small and great beasts.
26 There go the ships;
there also is that leviathan, whom Thou hast made to play therein.

27 These all wait upon Thee,
that Thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
28 What Thou givest them, they gather:
Thou openest Thine hand, they are filled with good.
29 Thou hidest Thy face, they are troubled;
Thou takest away their breath, they die and return to their dust.
30 Thou sendest forth Thy Spirit, they are created;
and Thou renewest the face of the earth.

31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever;
the LORD shall rejoice in His works.
32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth;
He toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 My meditation of Him shall be sweet;
I will be glad in the LORD.

35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth,
and let the wicked be no more.
Bless thou the LORD, O my soul!
Praise ye the LORD!

John 7:14-24

14 Now about the midst of the feast, Jesus went up into the temple and taught. 15 And the Jews marveled, saying, "How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?" 16 Jesus answered them,

"My doctrine is not Mine, but His that sent Me. 17 If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine whether it be from God, or whether I speak from Myself. 18 He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory; but He that seeketh the glory of Him that sent Him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him. 19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill Me?"

20 The people answered and said, "Thou hast a devil. Who goeth about to kill thee?" 21 Jesus answered and said unto them,

"I have done one work, and ye all marvel. 22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and ye on the Sabbath day circumcise a man. 23 If a man receive circumcision on the Sabbath day, that the Law of Moses should not be broken, are ye angry at Me because I have made a man every whit whole on the Sabbath day? 24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."

2 Peter 1:1-11

1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ:

2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, according as 3 His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue. 4 Thereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises, that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And besides this, using all diligence, add to your faith virtue, and to virtue knowledge, 6 and to knowledge temperance, and to temperance patience, and to patience godliness, 7 and to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity. 8 For if these things be in you and abound, they make you that ye shall be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But he that lacketh these things is blind and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Therefore brethren, give diligence all the more to make your calling and election sure, for if ye do these things ye shall never fall. 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Hosea 11:1-12

1 "When Israel was a child, then I loved him,
and called My son out of Egypt.
2 As they called them, so they went from them;
they sacrificed unto the Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.
3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms;
but they knew not that I healed them.
4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love;
and I was to them as they that take off the yoke from their jaws, and I laid meat before them.

5 "He shall not return into the land of Egypt; 
but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return. 
6 And the sword shall abide on his cities, 
and shall consume his branches and devour them, because of their own counsels. 
7 And My people are bent on backsliding from Me; 
though they called them to the Most High, none at all would exalt Him. 

8 "How shall I give thee up, Ephraim?
How shall I deliver thee, Israel?
How shall I make thee as Admah?
How shall I set thee as Zeboiim?
Mine heart is turned within Me;
My repentings are kindled together.
9 I will not execute the fierceness of Mine anger,
I will not return to destroy Ephraim;
for I am God, and not man, the Holy One in the midst of thee;
and I will not enter into the city.

10 "They shall walk after the LORD; He shall roar like a lion.
When He shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.
11 They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria;
and I will place them in their houses," saith the LORD.

12 Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, 
and the house of Israel with deceit; 
but Judah yet ruleth with God, 
and is faithful with the saints.

Hosea 12:6

6 Therefore turn thou to thy God; keep mercy and judgment, and wait on thy God continually.

Words of Wisdom - Wisdom of Solomon 17:11-12

For wickedness, condemned by her own witness, is very timorous, and being pressed by conscience, always forecasteth grievous things. For fear is nothing else but a betraying of the succors which reason offereth.
