Proper 9
Collect

Collect

Merciful God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as pass our understanding: pour into our hearts such love toward you that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Old Testament

2 Kings 5:1-14

   1Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper.

   2And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman's wife.

   3And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.

   4And one went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that is of the land of Israel.

   5And the king of Syria said, Go to, go, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel. And he departed, and took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand pieces of gold, and ten changes of raiment.

   6And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.

   7And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me.

   8And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.

   9So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.

   10And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.

   11But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.

   12Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage.

   13And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?

   14Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

Epistle

Galatians 6:1-16

   1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

   2Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

   3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

   4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

   5For every man shall bear his own burden.

   6Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

   7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

   8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

   9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

   10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

   11Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

   12As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

   13For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

   14But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

   15For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

   16And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

Psalm

Psalm 30

   1I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

   2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

   3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

   4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

   5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

   6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

   7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

   8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

   9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

   10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.

   11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

   12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Gospel

Luke 10:1-11,16-20

   1After these things the LORD appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.

   2Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

   3Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

   4Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.

   5And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

   6And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again.

   7And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.

   8And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you:

   9And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

   10But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say,

   11Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

   16He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

   17And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

   18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

   19Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

   20Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
