Almighty God,
whose Son revealed in signs and miracles
the wonder of your saving presence:
renew your people with your heavenly grace,
and in all our weakness
sustain us by your mighty power;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Old Testament

Genesis 14:17-20

   17And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale.

   18And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

   19And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

   20And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

 

Epistle

Revelation 19:6-10

   6And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

   7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

   8And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

   9And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

   10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

Psalm

Psalm 128

   1Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.

   2For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.

   3Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.

   4Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.

   5The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

   6Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.

 

Gospel

John 2:1-11

   1And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:

   2And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.

   3And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.

   4Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.

   5His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.

   6And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

   7Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

   8And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.

   9When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

   10And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

   11This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
