Grant, we beseech you, merciful Lord,
to your faithful people pardon and peace,
that they may be cleansed from all their sins
and serve you with a quiet mind;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Old Testament

Job 38:1-7

   1Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,

   2Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?

   3Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.

   4Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

   5Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

   6Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;

   7When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?



Hebrews 5:1-10

   1For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:

   2Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

   3And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.

   4And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

   5So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.

   6As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

   7Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

   8Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

   9And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

   10Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.



Psalm 104:1-10,26,35c

   1Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

   2Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

   3Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

   4Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

   5Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.

   6Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

   7At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.

   8They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

   9Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

   10He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

   26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

   35Let 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.



Mark 10:35-45

   35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

   36And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

   37They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.

   38But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?

   39And they said unto him, We can. And Jesus said unto them, Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of; and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized:

   40But to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give; but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared.

   41And when the ten heard it, they began to be much displeased with James and John.

   42But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them.

   43But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:

   44And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

   45For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
