The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Hosea 11

1 "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, 
and called My son out of Egypt. 
2 As they called them, so they went from them; 
they sacrificed unto the Baalim, and burned incense to graven images. 
3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; 
but they knew not that I healed them. 
4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love; 
and I was to them as they that take off the yoke from their jaws, and I laid meat before them. 

5 "He shall not return into the land of Egypt; 
but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return. 
6 And the sword shall abide on his cities, 
and shall consume his branches and devour them, because of their own counsels. 
7 And My people are bent on backsliding from Me; 
though they called them to the Most High, none at all would exalt Him.

8 "How shall I give thee up, Ephraim? 
How shall I deliver thee, Israel? How shall I make thee as Admah? 
How shall I set thee as Zeboiim? 
Mine heart is turned within Me; 
My repentings are kindled together. 
9 I will not execute the fierceness of Mine anger, 
I will not return to destroy Ephraim; 
for I am God, and not man, the Holy One in the midst of thee; 
and I will not enter into the city. 

10 "They shall walk after the LORD; He shall roar like a lion. 
When He shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west. 
11 They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria; 
and I will place them in their houses," saith the LORD. 

12 Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, 
and the house of Israel with deceit; 
but Judah yet ruleth with God, 
and is faithful with the saints.

Psalm 80

1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that leadest Joseph like a flock;
Thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.
2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up Thy strength, and come and save us.

3 Turn us again, O God, and cause Thy face to shine,
and we shall be saved.

4 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt Thou be angry against the prayer of Thy people?
5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, and givest them tears to drink in great measure.
6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbors,
and our enemies laugh among themselves.
7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause Thy face to shine,
and we shall be saved.

8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt;
Thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
9 Thou preparedst room for it, and didst cause it to take deep root,
and it filled the land.
10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it,
and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.
11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea,
and her branches unto the river.

12 Why hast Thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they that pass by the way do pluck her?
13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.
14 Return, we beseech Thee, O God of hosts; look down from heaven,
and behold and visit this vine,
15 and the vineyard which Thy right hand hath planted,
and the branch that Thou madest strong for Thyself.
16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down;
they perish at the rebuke of Thy countenance.
17 Let Thy hand be upon the man of Thy right hand,
upon the son of man whom Thou madest strong for Thyself.
18 So will we not go back from Thee;
quicken us, and we will call upon Thy name.
19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts;
cause Thy face to shine, and we shall be saved!

Words of Worship - Mark 1:15b

"The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent ye and believe the Gospel." 

Matthew 10:7-15

7 And as ye go, preach, saying, `The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.' 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils. Freely ye have received; freely give. 9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor brass in your purses, 10 nor pack for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves; for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till ye go thence. 12 And when ye come into a house, salute it, 13 and if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it; but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15 Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city.

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 22:15

Foolishness is bound into the heart of a child, 
but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 7:12

Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the Law and the Prophets.
