The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

1 Kings 10:1-10

1 And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to test him with hard questions. 2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bore spices and very much gold and precious stones; and when she had come to Solomon, she communed with him about all that was in her heart. 3 And Solomon told her all her questions; there was not any thing hidden from the king which he told her not.

4 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built, 5 and the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD, there was no more spirit in her. 6 And she said to the king, "It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. 7 However I believed not the words until I came and mine eyes had seen it; and behold, the half was not told me. Thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard. 8 Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, who stand continually before thee and who hear thy wisdom. 9 Blessed be the LORD thy God, who delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel! Because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made He thee king to do judgment and justice." 10 And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices a very great store, and precious stones; there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.

Psalm 37:1-11, 30-40

1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers,
neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
4 Delight thyself also in the LORD,
and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD;
trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.
6 And He shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light,
and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.
9 For evildoers shall be cut off;
but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall not be;
yea, thou shalt diligently look for his place, and it shall not be.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,

30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom,
and his tongue talketh of judgment.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
none of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watcheth the righteous,
and seeketh to slay him.
33 But the LORD will not leave him in his hand,
nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the LORD and keep His way, and He shall exalt thee to inherit the land;
when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

35 I have seen the wicked in great power,
and spreading himself like a green bay tree.
36 Yet he passed away, and lo, he was no more;
yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the perfect man and behold the upright,
for the end of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is in the LORD;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked and save them, because they trust in Him.

Words of Worship - John 17:17

Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy Word is truth.

Mark 7:14-23 

14 And when He had called all the people unto Him, He said unto them, 

"Hearken unto Me every one of you, and understand: 15 There is nothing from outside a man that, entering into him, can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. 16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear." 

17 And when He had entered into the house away from the people, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. 18 And He said unto them, 

"Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive that whatsoever thing from outside entereth into a man, it cannot defile him, 19 because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly and goeth out into the drain, thereby purging all meats?" 

20 And He said, 

"That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 all these evil things come from within and defile the man."

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiasticus 8:5 

Reproach not a man that turneth from sin, 
but remember that we are all worthy of punishment.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 9:16-17

"No man putteth a piece of new cloth upon an old garment, for that which is put in to fill it up taketh from the garment, and the rent is made worse. Neither do men put new wine into old wineskins, else the wineskins burst and the wine runneth out and the skins perish. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."
