Old Testament

Jeremiah 1:4-10

   4Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

   5Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

   6Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.

   7But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

   8Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.

   9Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

   10See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

 

Epistle

Hebrews 12:18-29

   18For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,

   19And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:

   20(For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart:

   21And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:)

   22But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

   23To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

   24And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

   25See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:

   26Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

   27And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

   28Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

   29For our God is a consuming fire.

 

Psalm

Psalm 71:1-6

   1In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.

   2Deliver me in thy righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me.

   3Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.

   4Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

   5For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.

   6By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.

 

Gospel

Luke 13:10-17

   10And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath.

   11And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.

   12And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

   13And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

   14And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day.

   15The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering?

   16And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?

   17And when he had said these things, all his adversaries were ashamed: and all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
