Numbers 27:12-23

The Lord said to Moses, ‘Go up this mountain of the Abarim range,
and see the land that I have given to the Israelites. When you have
seen it, you also shall be gathered to your people, as your brother
Aaron was, because you rebelled against my word in the wilderness of
Zin when the congregation quarrelled with me.* You did not show my
holiness before their eyes at the waters.’ (These are the waters of
Meribath-kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.) Moses spoke to the Lord,
saying, ‘Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint
someone over the congregation who shall go out before them and come in
before them, who shall lead them out and bring them in, so that the
congregation of the Lord may not be like sheep without a shepherd.’
So the Lord said to Moses, ‘Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is
the spirit, and lay your hand upon him; have him stand before Eleazar
the priest and all the congregation, and commission him in their
sight. You shall give him some of your authority, so that all the
congregation of the Israelites may obey. But he shall stand before
Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the decision of the
Urim before the Lord; at his word they shall go out, and at his word
they shall come in, both he and all the Israelites with him, the whole
congregation.’ So Moses did as the Lord commanded him. He took
Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole
congregation; he laid his hands on him and commissioned him—as the
Lord had directed through Moses.
Acts 19:11-20

God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that when the
handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his skin were brought to the
sick, their diseases left them, and the evil spirits came out of them.
Then some itinerant Jewish exorcists tried to use the name of the Lord
Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, ‘I adjure you by the
Jesus whom Paul proclaims.’ Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named
Sceva were doing this. But the evil spirit said to them in reply,
‘Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?’ Then the man
with the evil spirit leapt on them, mastered them all, and so
overpowered them that they fled out of the house naked and wounded.
When this became known to all residents of Ephesus, both Jews and
Greeks, everyone was awestruck; and the name of the Lord Jesus was
praised. Also many of those who became believers confessed and
disclosed their practices. A number of those who practised magic
collected their books and burned them publicly; when the value of
these books* was calculated, it was found to come to fifty thousand
silver coins. So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.
Mark 1:14-20

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the
good news* of God,* and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the
kingdom of God has come near;* repent, and believe in the good

 As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his
brother Andrew casting a net into the lake—for they were fishermen.
And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish for
people.’ And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As
he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother
John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called
them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired
men, and followed him.
Morning Psalms: Psalm 146, 147

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord, O my soul! 
I will praise the Lord as long as I live;
   I will sing praises to my God all my life long. 

Do not put your trust in princes,
   in mortals, in whom there is no help. 
When their breath departs, they return to the earth;
   on that very day their plans perish. 

Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
   whose hope is in the Lord their God, 
who made heaven and earth,
   the sea, and all that is in them;
who keeps faith for ever; 
   who executes justice for the oppressed;
   who gives food to the hungry. 

The Lord sets the prisoners free; 
   the Lord opens the eyes of the blind.
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
   the Lord loves the righteous. 
The Lord watches over the strangers;
   he upholds the orphan and the widow,
   but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 

The Lord will reign for ever,
   your God, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 147

Praise the Lord!
How good it is to sing praises to our God;
   for he is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting. 
The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
   he gathers the outcasts of Israel. 
He heals the broken-hearted,
   and binds up their wounds. 
He determines the number of the stars;
   he gives to all of them their names. 
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power;
   his understanding is beyond measure. 
The Lord lifts up the downtrodden;
   he casts the wicked to the ground. 

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
   make melody to our God on the lyre. 
He covers the heavens with clouds,
   prepares rain for the earth,
   makes grass grow on the hills. 
He gives to the animals their food,
   and to the young ravens when they cry. 
His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
   nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner;* 
but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him,
   in those who hope in his steadfast love. 

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
   Praise your God, O Zion! 
For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
   he blesses your children within you. 
He grants peace* within your borders;
   he fills you with the finest of wheat. 
He sends out his command to the earth;
   his word runs swiftly. 
He gives snow like wool;
   he scatters frost like ashes. 
He hurls down hail like crumbs—
   who can stand before his cold? 
He sends out his word, and melts them;
   he makes his wind blow, and the waters flow. 
He declares his word to Jacob,
   his statutes and ordinances to Israel. 
He has not dealt thus with any other nation;
   they do not know his ordinances.
Praise the Lord!
Evening Psalms: Psalm 111, 112, 113

Psalm 111

Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
   in the company of the upright, in the congregation. 
Great are the works of the Lord,
   studied by all who delight in them. 
Full of honour and majesty is his work,
   and his righteousness endures for ever. 
He has gained renown by his wonderful deeds;
   the Lord is gracious and merciful. 
He provides food for those who fear him;
   he is ever mindful of his covenant. 
He has shown his people the power of his works,
   in giving them the heritage of the nations. 
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
   all his precepts are trustworthy. 
They are established for ever and ever,
   to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness. 
He sent redemption to his people;
   he has commanded his covenant for ever.
   Holy and awesome is his name. 
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
   all those who practise it* have a good understanding.
   His praise endures for ever.

Psalm 112

Praise the Lord!
   Happy are those who fear the Lord,
   who greatly delight in his commandments. 
Their descendants will be mighty in the land;
   the generation of the upright will be blessed. 
Wealth and riches are in their houses,
   and their righteousness endures for ever. 
They rise in the darkness as a light for the upright;
   they are gracious, merciful, and righteous. 
It is well with those who deal generously and lend,
   who conduct their affairs with justice. 
For the righteous will never be moved;
   they will be remembered for ever. 
They are not afraid of evil tidings;
   their hearts are firm, secure in the Lord. 
Their hearts are steady, they will not be afraid;
   in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. 
They have distributed freely, they have given to the poor;
   their righteousness endures for ever;
   their horn is exalted in honour. 
The wicked see it and are angry;
   they gnash their teeth and melt away;
   the desire of the wicked comes to nothing.

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord;
   praise the name of the Lord. 

Blessed be the name of the Lord
   from this time on and for evermore. 
>From the rising of the sun to its setting
   the name of the Lord is to be praised. 
The Lord is high above all nations,
   and his glory above the heavens. 

Who is like the Lord our God,
   who is seated on high, 
who looks far down
   on the heavens and the earth? 
He raises the poor from the dust,
   and lifts the needy from the ash heap, 
to make them sit with princes,
   with the princes of his people. 
He gives the barren woman a home,
   making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
