The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Exodus 32:15-35

15 And Moses turned and went down from the mount, and the two tablets of the testimony were in his hand. The tablets were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written. 16 And the tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tablets. 17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, "There is a noise of war in the camp." 18 And Moses said, "It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome; but the noise of them that sing do I hear." 19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing; and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them beneath the mount. 20 And he took the calf which they had made and burned it in the fire and ground it to powder, and strewed it upon the water and made the children of Israel drink of it.

21 And Moses said unto Aaron, "What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?" 22 And Aaron said, "Let not the anger of my lord wax hot. Thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief. 23 For they said unto me, `Make us gods which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what has become of him.' 24 And I said unto them, `Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off.' So they gave it to me. Then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf."

25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies), 26 then Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said, "Who is on the LORD'S side? Let him come unto me." And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. 27 And he said unto them, "Thus saith the LORD God of Israel: `Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.'" 28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses, and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men. 29 For Moses had said, "Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD, even every man upon his son and upon his brother, that He may bestow upon you a blessing this day." 30 And it came to pass on the morrow that Moses said unto the people, "Ye have sinned a great sin. And now I will go up unto the LORD. Perhaps I shall make an atonement for your sin." 31 And Moses returned unto the LORD and said, "Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made themselves gods of gold. 32 Yet now, if Thou wilt forgive their sin -- and if not, blot me, I pray Thee, out of Thy book which Thou hast written!" 33 And the LORD said unto Moses, "Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out of My book. 34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee; behold, Mine angel shall go before thee. Nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them." 35 And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf which Aaron made.

Psalm 106:1-23 

1 Praise ye the LORD! O give thanks unto the LORD, 
for He is good, for His mercy endureth for ever.

2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? 
Who can show forth all His praise? 
3 Blessed are they that keep judgment 
and he that doeth righteousness at all times. 

4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favor which Thou bearest unto Thy people; 
O visit me with Thy salvation, 
5 that I may see the good of Thy chosen, 
that I may rejoice in the gladness of Thy nation, 
that I may glory with Thine inheritance. 

6 We have sinned with our fathers, 
we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. 
7 Our fathers understood not Thy wonders in Egypt; 
they remembered not the multitude of Thy mercies, but provoked Thee at the sea, even at the Red Sea.
8 Nevertheless He saved them for His name's sake, 
that He might make His mighty power to be known. 
9 He rebuked the Red Sea also, and it was dried up; 
so He led them through the depths, as through the wilderness. 
10 And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, 
and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 
11 And the waters covered their enemies; there was not one of them left. 
12 Then believed they His words; they sang His praise. 

13 They soon forgot His works; they waited not for His counsel, 
14 but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 
15 And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul. 
16 They also envied Moses in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD. 
17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 
18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 

19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped the molten image. 
20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. 
21 They forgot God their Savior, 
who had done great things in Egypt, 
22 wondrous works in the land of Ham, 
and fearsome things by the Red Sea. 
23 Therefore He said that He would destroy them, had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach, 
to turn away His wrath, lest He should destroy them.

Words of Worship - James 1:18

Of His own will, He begot us by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

Matthew 13:31-35

31 Another parable put He forth before them, saying, 

"The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field, 32 which indeed is the least of all seeds; but when it is grown it is the greatest among herbs and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof."

33 Another parable spoke He unto them:

"The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till the whole was leavened."

34 All these things spoke Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spoke He not unto them, 35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

"I will open My mouth in parables;
I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world."

Words of Wisdom - Proverbs 23:4

Labor not to be rich; 
cease from thine own wisdom. 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 9:37

Then said He unto His disciples,

"The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few.
