Numbers 3:1-13

This is the lineage of Aaron and Moses at the time when the Lord spoke
with Moses on Mount Sinai. These are the names of the sons of Aaron:
Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar; these are the
names of the sons of Aaron, the anointed priests, whom he ordained to
minister as priests. Nadab and Abihu died before the Lord when they
offered unholy fire before the Lord in the wilderness of Sinai, and
they had no children. Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests in the
lifetime of their father Aaron.
 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bring the tribe of Levi near,
and set them before Aaron the priest, so that they may assist him.
They shall perform duties for him and for the whole congregation in
front of the tent of meeting, doing service at the tabernacle; they
shall be in charge of all the furnishings of the tent of meeting, and
attend to the duties for the Israelites as they do service at the
tabernacle. You shall give the Levites to Aaron and his descendants;
they are unreservedly given to him from among the Israelites. But you
shall make a register of Aaron and his descendants; it is they who
shall attend to the priesthood, and any outsider who comes near shall
be put to death.

 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: I hereby accept the Levites
from among the Israelites as substitutes for all the firstborn that
open the womb among the Israelites. The Levites shall be mine, for all
the firstborn are mine; when I killed all the firstborn in the land of
Egypt, I consecrated for my own all the firstborn in Israel, both
human and animal; they shall be mine. I am the Lord.
Galatians 6:11-18

See what large letters I make when I am writing in my own hand! It is
those who want to make a good showing in the flesh that try to compel
you to be circumcised—only that they may not be persecuted for the
cross of Christ. Even the circumcised do not themselves obey the law,
but they want you to be circumcised so that they may boast about your
flesh. May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord
Jesus Christ, by which* the world has been crucified to me, and I to
the world. For* neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is anything;
but a new creation is everything! As for those who will follow this
rule—peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

 From now on, let no one make trouble for me; for I carry the marks
of Jesus branded on my body.

 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers
and sisters.* Amen.
Matthew 17:1-13

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother
John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves. And he was
transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his
clothes became dazzling white. Suddenly there appeared to them Moses
and Elijah, talking with him. Then Peter said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is
good for us to be here; if you wish, I* will make three dwellings*
here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’ While he was
still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them, and from
the cloud a voice said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved;* with him I am
well pleased; listen to him!’ When the disciples heard this, they
fell to the ground and were overcome by fear. But Jesus came and
touched them, saying, ‘Get up and do not be afraid.’ And when they
looked up, they saw no one except Jesus himself alone.

 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, ‘Tell
no one about the vision until after the Son of Man has been raised
from the dead.’ And the disciples asked him, ‘Why, then, do the
scribes say that Elijah must come first?’ He replied, ‘Elijah is
indeed coming and will restore all things; but I tell you that Elijah
has already come, and they did not recognize him, but they did to him
whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man is about to suffer at
their hands.’ Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to
them about John the Baptist.
Morning Psalms:  Psalm 75, 76

Psalm 75

We give thanks to you, O God;
   we give thanks; your name is near.
People tell of your wondrous deeds. 

At the set time that I appoint
   I will judge with equity. 
When the earth totters, with all its inhabitants,
   it is I who keep its pillars steady.
I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast’,
   and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn; 
do not lift up your horn on high,
   or speak with insolent neck.’ 

For not from the east or from the west
   and not from the wilderness comes lifting up; 
but it is God who executes judgement,
   putting down one and lifting up another. 
For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup
   with foaming wine, well mixed;
he will pour a draught from it,
   and all the wicked of the earth
   shall drain it down to the dregs. 
But I will rejoice* for ever;
   I will sing praises to the God of Jacob. 

All the horns of the wicked I will cut off,
   but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Psalm 76

In Judah God is known,
   his name is great in Israel. 
His abode has been established in Salem,
   his dwelling-place in Zion. 
There he broke the flashing arrows,
   the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.

Glorious are you, more majestic
   than the everlasting mountains.* 
The stout-hearted were stripped of their spoil;
   they sank into sleep;
none of the troops
   was able to lift a hand. 
At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
   both rider and horse lay stunned. 

But you indeed are awesome!
   Who can stand before you
   when once your anger is roused? 
>From the heavens you uttered judgement;
   the earth feared and was still 
when God rose up to establish judgement,
   to save all the oppressed of the earth.

Human wrath serves only to praise you,
   when you bind the last bit of your* wrath around you. 
Make vows to the Lord your God, and perform them;
   let all who are around him bring gifts
   to the one who is awesome, 
who cuts off the spirit of princes,
   who inspires fear in the kings of the earth.
Evening Psalms:  Psalm 23, 27

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 
   He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;* 
   he restores my soul.*
He leads me in right paths*
   for his name’s sake. 

Even though I walk through the darkest valley,*
   I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
   your rod and your staff—
   they comfort me. 

You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows. 
Surely* goodness and mercy* shall follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
   my whole life long.*

Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
   whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold* of my life;
   of whom shall I be afraid? 

When evildoers assail me
   to devour my flesh—
my adversaries and foes—
   they shall stumble and fall. 

Though an army encamp against me,
   my heart shall not fear;
though war rise up against me,
   yet I will be confident. 

One thing I asked of the Lord,
   that will I seek after:
to live in the house of the Lord
   all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
   and to inquire in his temple. 

For he will hide me in his shelter
   in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
   he will set me high on a rock. 

Now my head is lifted up
   above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
   sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the Lord. 

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud,
   be gracious to me and answer me! 
‘Come,’ my heart says, ‘seek his face!’
   Your face, Lord, do I seek. 
   Do not hide your face from me. 

Do not turn your servant away in anger,
   you who have been my help.
Do not cast me off, do not forsake me,
   O God of my salvation! 
If my father and mother forsake me,
   the Lord will take me up. 

Teach me your way, O Lord,
   and lead me on a level path
   because of my enemies. 
Do not give me up to the will of my adversaries,
   for false witnesses have risen against me,
   and they are breathing out violence. 

I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord
   in the land of the living. 
Wait for the Lord;
   be strong, and let your heart take courage;
   wait for the Lord!
