The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Jeremiah 11:14-20 

14 "Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto Me for their trouble. 15 What hath My beloved to do in Mine houses to provoke Me to anger in offering incense unto Baal." 

18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it; then Thou showed me their doings. 19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, "Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land oe, seeing she hath wrought lewdness with many, and the holy flesh is passed from thee? When thou doest evil, then thou rejoicest. 16 The LORD called thy name, `A Green Olive Tree,' fair and of goodly fruit. With the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken. 17 For the LORD of hosts, who planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee for the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have done against themselvf the living, that his name may be no more remembered." 20 But, O LORD of hosts, who judgest righteously, who triest the reins and the heart, let me see Thy vengeance on them, for unto Thee have I revealed my cause.

Psalm 7

1 O LORD my God, in Thee do I put my trust.
Save me from all them that persecute me; and deliver me,
2 lest they tear my soul like a lion,
rending it in pieces while there is none to deliver.
3 O LORD my God, if I have done this,
if there be iniquity on my hands,
4 if I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me
(yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy),
5 let the enemy persecute my soul and take it;
yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust.

6 Arise, O LORD, in Thine anger;
lift up Thyself against the rage of mine enemies, and awaken for me the judgment that Thou hast commanded.
7 So shall the congregation of the people compass Thee about;
for their sakes, therefore, return Thou on high.
8 The LORD shall judge the people:
Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to mine integrity that is in me.

9 O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish the just;
for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

10 My defense is of God, who saveth the upright in heart.
11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
12 If he turn not, He will whet His sword;
He hath bent His bow and made it ready.
13 He hath also prepared for Him the instruments of death;
He ordaineth His arrows against the persecutors.

14 Behold, the wicked travaileth with iniquity,
and hath conceived mischief and brought forth falsehood.
15 He made a pit and dug it,
and has fallen into the ditch which he hath made.
16 His mischief shall return upon his own head;
and his violent dealings shall come down upon his own pate.

17 I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness,
and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

Words of Worship - Luke 8:15

But that on the good ground are they that, in an honest and good heart, having heard the Word, keep it and bring forth fruit with patience.

John 7:37-53

37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying,

"If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. 38 He that believeth in Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."

39 (But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believe in Him should receive; for the Holy Ghost was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

40 Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, "In truth this is the Prophet." 41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Shall Christ come out of Galilee? 42 Hath not the Scripture said that Christ cometh out of the seed of David, and out of the town of Bethlehem where David was?" 43 So there was a division among the people because of Him. 44 And some of them would have taken Him, but no man laid hands on Him.

45 Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said unto them, "Why have ye not brought him?" 46 The officers answered, "Never did man speak like this man!" 47 Then the Pharisees answered them, "Are ye also deceived? 48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? 49 But this people, who knoweth not the law, are cursed." 50 Nicodemus said unto them (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them), 51 "Doth our law judge any man before it hear him and know what he doeth?" 52 They answered and said unto him, "Art thou also from Galilee? Search and look, for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet." 53 And every man went unto his own house.

Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 7:11

Wisdom is good with an inheritance, 
and by it there is profit to them that see the sun. 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Luke 11:5-8

And He said unto them,

"Which of you shall have a friend and shall go unto him at midnight and say unto him, `Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him'; and he from within shall answer and say, `Trouble me not; the door is now shut and my children are with me in bed, and I cannot rise and give to thee'? I say unto you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
