The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 1:10-20

10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom;
give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah:
11 "To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me?" saith the LORD.
"I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts;
and I delight not in the blood of bullocks,
or of lambs or of hegoats.
12 When you come to appear before Me,
who hath required this from your hand, to tread My courts?
13 Bring no more vain oblations;
incense is an abomination unto Me.
The new moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot endure.
It is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hateth;
they are a trouble unto Me, I am weary of bearing them.
15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you;
yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood.
16 Wash you, make you clean,
put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes.
Cease to do evil,
17 learn to do well.
Seek judgment, relieve the oppressed;
judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18 "Come now, and let us reason together,"
saith the LORD.
"Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land;
20 but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword"; for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Psalm 50

1 The Mighty God, even the LORD, hath spoken and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
3 Our God shall come and shall not keep silence;
a devouring fire shall go before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above and to the earth,
that He may judge His people:
5 "Gather My saints together unto Me,
those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice."
6 And the heavens shall declare His righteousness,
for God Himself is judge.

7 "Hear, O My people, and I will speak,
O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.
8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices
or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before Me.
9 I will take no bullock out of thy house,
nor hegoats out of thy folds.
10 For every beast of the forest is Mine
and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know all the fowls of the mountains,
and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.
12 If I were hungry I would not tell thee,
for the world is Mine and the fullness thereof.
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,
or drink the blood of goats?

14 "Offer unto God thanksgiving,
and pay thy vows unto the Most High,
15 and call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me."

16 But unto the wicked God saith: "What hast thou to do to declare My statutes, or that thou shouldest take My covenant in thy mouth,
17 seeing thou hatest instruction and castest My words behind thee?
18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consented with him,
and thou hast been partaker with adulterers.
19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil,
and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother;
thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence;
thou thoughtest that I was altogether such a one as thyself.
But I will reprove thee and set them in order before thine eyes.

22 "Now consider this, ye that forget God,
lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to deliver:
23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth Me;
and to him that ordereth his manner of living aright, I will show the salvation of God."

Words of Worship - Ezekiel 18:31a

Cast away from you all your transgressions whereby ye have transgressed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. 

Matthew 23:1-12

1 Then spoke Jesus to the multitude and to His disciples, 2 saying,

"The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do ye not according to their works; for they say, and do not. 4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 5 But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, 6 and love the uppermost places at feasts and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and greetings in the markets, and to be called by men, 'Rabbi, Rabbi.' 8 But be not ye called 'Rabbi,' for One is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

9 "And call no man your father upon earth, for One is your Father, who is in Heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters, for One is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 6:7

All the labor of man is for his mouth, 
and yet the appetite is not filled.

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 6:24-25a

"But woe unto you that are rich,
for ye have received your consolation.
Woe unto you that are full,
for ye shall hunger.
