Deuteronomy 34:1-12

Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top
of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho, and the Lord showed him the
whole land: Gilead as far as Dan, all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim
and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea, the
Negeb, and the Plain—that is, the valley of Jericho, the city of
palm trees—as far as Zoar. The Lord said to him, ‘This is the land
of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, “I will
give it to your descendants”; I have let you see it with your eyes,
but you shall not cross over there.’ Then Moses, the servant of the
Lord, died there in the land of Moab, at the Lord’s command. He was
buried in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor, but no one
knows his burial place to this day. Moses was one hundred and twenty
years old when he died; his sight was unimpaired and his vigour had
not abated. The Israelites wept for Moses in the plains of Moab for
thirty days; then the period of mourning for Moses was ended.

 Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses
had laid his hands on him; and the Israelites obeyed him, doing as the
Lord had commanded Moses.

 Never since has there arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses, whom
the Lord knew face to face. He was unequalled for all the signs and
wonders that the Lord sent him to perform in the land of Egypt,
against Pharaoh and all his servants and his entire land, and for all
the mighty deeds and all the terrifying displays of power that Moses
performed in the sight of all Israel.
Romans 10:14-21

But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And
how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how
are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to
proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful
are the feet of those who bring good news!’ But not all have obeyed
the good news;* for Isaiah says, ‘Lord, who has believed our
message?’ So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes
through the word of Christ.*

 But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed they have; for
‘Their voice has gone out to all the earth,
   and their words to the ends of the world.’ 
Again I ask, did Israel not understand? First Moses says,
‘I will make you jealous of those who are not a nation;
   with a foolish nation I will make you angry.’ 
Then Isaiah is so bold as to say,
‘I have been found by those who did not seek me;
   I have shown myself to those who did not ask for me.’ 
But of Israel he says, ‘All day long I have held out my hands to a
disobedient and contrary people.’
Matthew 24:32-51

‘From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes
tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So
also, when you see all these things, you know that he* is near, at the
very gates. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until
all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away,
but my words will not pass away.
 ‘But about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of
heaven, nor the Son,* but only the Father. For as the days of Noah
were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days
before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in
marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and they knew nothing
until the flood came and swept them all away, so too will be the
coming of the Son of Man. Then two will be in the field; one will be
taken and one will be left. Two women will be grinding meal together;
one will be taken and one will be left. Keep awake therefore, for you
do not know on what day* your Lord is coming. But understand this: if
the owner of the house had known in what part of the night the thief
was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his
house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of
Man is coming at an unexpected hour.
 ‘Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom his master has put
in charge of his household, to give the other slaves* their allowance
of food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master will
find at work when he arrives. Truly I tell you, he will put that one
in charge of all his possessions. But if that wicked slave says to
himself, “My master is delayed”, and he begins to beat his
fellow-slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that
slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour
that he does not know. He will cut him in pieces* and put him with the
hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Morning Psalms:  Psalm 20, 21:1-14

Psalm 20

The Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
   The name of the God of Jacob protect you! 
May he send you help from the sanctuary,
   and give you support from Zion. 
May he remember all your offerings,
   and regard with favour your burnt sacrifices.

May he grant you your heart’s desire,
   and fulfil all your plans. 
May we shout for joy over your victory,
   and in the name of our God set up our banners.
May the Lord fulfil all your petitions. 

Now I know that the Lord will help his anointed;
   he will answer him from his holy heaven
   with mighty victories by his right hand. 
Some take pride in chariots, and some in horses,
   but our pride is in the name of the Lord our God. 
They will collapse and fall,
   but we shall rise and stand upright. 

Give victory to the king, O Lord;
   answer us when we call.*

Psalm 21:1-14

In your strength the king rejoices, O Lord,
   and in your help how greatly he exults! 
You have given him his heart’s desire,
   and have not withheld the request of his lips.
For you meet him with rich blessings;
   you set a crown of fine gold on his head. 
He asked you for life; you gave it to him—
   length of days for ever and ever. 
His glory is great through your help;
   splendour and majesty you bestow on him. 
You bestow on him blessings for ever;
   you make him glad with the joy of your presence. 
For the king trusts in the Lord,
   and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be

Your hand will find out all your enemies;
   your right hand will find out those who hate you. 
You will make them like a fiery furnace
   when you appear.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,
   and fire will consume them. 
You will destroy their offspring from the earth,
   and their children from among humankind. 
If they plan evil against you,
   if they devise mischief, they will not succeed. 
For you will put them to flight;
   you will aim at their faces with your bows. 

Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength!
   We will sing and praise your power.
Evening Psalms:  Psalm 110:1-7, 116, 117

Psalm 110:1-7

The Lord says to my lord,
   ‘Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies your footstool.’ 

The Lord sends out from Zion
   your mighty sceptre.
   Rule in the midst of your foes. 
Your people will offer themselves willingly
   on the day you lead your forces
   on the holy mountains.*
>From the womb of the morning,
   like dew, your youth* will come to you. 
The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind,
   ‘You are a priest for ever according to the order of

The Lord is at your right hand;
   he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. 
He will execute judgement among the nations,
   filling them with corpses;
he will shatter heads
   over the wide earth. 
He will drink from the stream by the path;
   therefore he will lift up his head.

Psalm 116

I love the Lord, because he has heard
   my voice and my supplications. 
Because he inclined his ear to me,
   therefore I will call on him as long as I live. 
The snares of death encompassed me;
   the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me;
   I suffered distress and anguish. 
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
   ‘O Lord, I pray, save my life!’ 

Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;
   our God is merciful. 
The Lord protects the simple;
   when I was brought low, he saved me. 
Return, O my soul, to your rest,
   for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. 

For you have delivered my soul from death,
   my eyes from tears,
   my feet from stumbling. 
I walk before the Lord
   in the land of the living. 
I kept my faith, even when I said,
   ‘I am greatly afflicted’; 
I said in my consternation,
   ‘Everyone is a liar.’ 

What shall I return to the Lord
   for all his bounty to me? 
I will lift up the cup of salvation
   and call on the name of the Lord, 
I will pay my vows to the Lord
   in the presence of all his people. 
Precious in the sight of the Lord
   is the death of his faithful ones. 
O Lord, I am your servant;
   I am your servant, the child of your serving-maid.
   You have loosed my bonds. 
I will offer to you a thanksgiving sacrifice
   and call on the name of the Lord. 
I will pay my vows to the Lord
   in the presence of all his people, 
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
   in your midst, O Jerusalem.
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 117

Praise the Lord, all you nations!
   Extol him, all you peoples! 
For great is his steadfast love towards us,
   and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever.
Praise the Lord!
