Numbers 9:15-23, 10:29-36

On the day the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the
tabernacle, the tent of the covenant;* and from evening until morning
it was over the tabernacle, having the appearance of fire. It was
always so: the cloud covered it by day* and the appearance of fire by
night. Whenever the cloud lifted from over the tent, then the
Israelites would set out; and in the place where the cloud settled
down, there the Israelites would camp. At the command of the Lord the
Israelites would set out, and at the command of the Lord they would
camp. As long as the cloud rested over the tabernacle, they would
remain in camp. Even when the cloud continued over the tabernacle for
many days, the Israelites would keep the charge of the Lord, and would
not set out. Sometimes the cloud would remain for a few days over the
tabernacle, and according to the command of the Lord they would remain
in camp; then according to the command of the Lord they would set out.
Sometimes the cloud would remain from evening until morning; and when
the cloud lifted in the morning, they would set out, or if it
continued for a day and a night, when the cloud lifted they would set
out. Whether it was two days, or a month, or a longer time, that the
cloud continued over the tabernacle, resting upon it, the Israelites
would remain in camp and would not set out; but when it lifted they
would set out. At the command of the Lord they would camp, and at the
command of the Lord they would set out. They kept the charge of the
Lord, at the command of the Lord by Moses.

 Moses said to Hobab son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’
father-in-law, ‘We are setting out for the place of which the Lord
said, “I will give it to you”; come with us, and we will treat you
well; for the Lord has promised good to Israel.’ But he said to him,
‘I will not go, but I will go back to my own land and to my
kindred.’ He said, ‘Do not leave us, for you know where we should
camp in the wilderness, and you will serve as eyes for us. Moreover,
if you go with us, whatever good the Lord does for us, the same we
will do for you.’

 So they set out from the mount of the Lord on three days’ journey
with the ark of the covenant of the Lord going before them for three
days’ journey, to seek out a resting-place for them, the cloud of
the Lord being over them by day when they set out from the camp.

 Whenever the ark set out, Moses would say,
‘Arise, O Lord, let your enemies be scattered,
   and your foes flee before you.’ 
And whenever it came to rest, he would say,
‘Return, O Lord of the ten thousand thousands of Israel.’*
Romans 1:1-15

Paul, a servant* of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart
for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his
prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel concerning his Son, who
was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be
Son of God with power according to the spirit* of holiness by
resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we
have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of
faith among all the Gentiles for the sake of his name, including
yourselves who are called to belong to Jesus Christ,

 To all God’s beloved in Rome, who are called to be saints:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus

 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because
your faith is proclaimed throughout the world. For God, whom I serve
with my spirit by announcing the gospel* of his Son, is my witness
that without ceasing I remember you always in my prayers, asking that
by God’s will I may somehow at last succeed in coming to you. For I
am longing to see you so that I may share with you some spiritual gift
to strengthen you— or rather so that we may be mutually encouraged
by each other’s faith, both yours and mine. I want you to know,
brothers and sisters,* that I have often intended to come to you (but
thus far have been prevented), in order that I may reap some harvest
among you as I have among the rest of the Gentiles. I am a debtor both
to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish —
hence my eagerness to proclaim the gospel to you also who are in Rome.
Matthew 17:14-21

When they came to the crowd, a man came to him, knelt before him, and
said, ‘Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he
suffers terribly; he often falls into the fire and often into the
water. And I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure
him.’ Jesus answered, ‘You faithless and perverse generation, how
much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with
you? Bring him here to me.’ And Jesus rebuked the demon,* and it*
came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly. Then the disciples
came to Jesus privately and said, ‘Why could we not cast it out?’
He said to them, ‘Because of your little faith. For truly I tell
you, if you have faith the size of a* mustard seed, you will say to
this mountain, “Move from here to there”, and it will move; and
nothing will be impossible for you.’

Morning Psalms:  Psalm 80

Psalm 80

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
   you who lead Joseph like a flock!
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth 
   before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh.
Stir up your might,
   and come to save us! 

Restore us, O God;
   let your face shine, that we may be saved. 

O Lord God of hosts,
   how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers? 
You have fed them with the bread of tears,
   and given them tears to drink in full measure. 
You make us the scorn* of our neighbours;
   our enemies laugh among themselves. 

Restore us, O God of hosts;
   let your face shine, that we may be saved. 

You brought a vine out of Egypt;
   you drove out the nations and planted it. 
You cleared the ground for it;
   it took deep root and filled the land. 
The mountains were covered with its shade,
   the mighty cedars with its branches; 
it sent out its branches to the sea,
   and its shoots to the River. 
Why then have you broken down its walls,
   so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit? 
The boar from the forest ravages it,
   and all that move in the field feed on it. 

Turn again, O God of hosts;
   look down from heaven, and see;
have regard for this vine, 
   the stock that your right hand planted.* 
They have burned it with fire, they have cut it down;*
   may they perish at the rebuke of your countenance. 
But let your hand be upon the one at your right hand,
   the one whom you made strong for yourself. 
Then we will never turn back from you;
   give us life, and we will call on your name. 

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
   let your face shine, that we may be saved.
Evening Psalms:  Psalm 77. 79

Psalm 77

I cry aloud to God,
   aloud to God, that he may hear me. 
In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;
   in the night my hand is stretched out without wearying;
   my soul refuses to be comforted. 
I think of God, and I moan;
   I meditate, and my spirit faints.

You keep my eyelids from closing;
   I am so troubled that I cannot speak. 
I consider the days of old,
   and remember the years of long ago. 
I commune* with my heart in the night;
   I meditate and search my spirit:* 
‘Will the Lord spurn for ever,
   and never again be favourable? 
Has his steadfast love ceased for ever?
   Are his promises at an end for all time? 
Has God forgotten to be gracious?
   Has he in anger shut up his compassion?’
And I say, ‘It is my grief
   that the right hand of the Most High has changed.’ 

I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord;
   I will remember your wonders of old. 
I will meditate on all your work,
   and muse on your mighty deeds. 
Your way, O God, is holy.
   What god is so great as our God? 
You are the God who works wonders;
   you have displayed your might among the peoples. 
With your strong arm you redeemed your people,
   the descendants of Jacob and Joseph.

When the waters saw you, O God,
   when the waters saw you, they were afraid;
   the very deep trembled. 
The clouds poured out water;
   the skies thundered;
   your arrows flashed on every side. 
The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind;
   your lightnings lit up the world;
   the earth trembled and shook. 
Your way was through the sea,
   your path, through the mighty waters;
   yet your footprints were unseen. 
You led your people like a flock
   by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

Psalm 79

O God, the nations have come into your inheritance;
   they have defiled your holy temple;
   they have laid Jerusalem in ruins. 
They have given the bodies of your servants
   to the birds of the air for food,
   the flesh of your faithful to the wild animals of the earth. 
They have poured out their blood like water
   all around Jerusalem,
   and there was no one to bury them. 
We have become a taunt to our neighbours,
   mocked and derided by those around us. 

How long, O Lord? Will you be angry for ever?
   Will your jealous wrath burn like fire? 
Pour out your anger on the nations
   that do not know you,
and on the kingdoms
   that do not call on your name. 
For they have devoured Jacob
   and laid waste his habitation. 

Do not remember against us the iniquities of our ancestors;
   let your compassion come speedily to meet us,
   for we are brought very low. 
Help us, O God of our salvation,
   for the glory of your name;
deliver us, and forgive our sins,
   for your name’s sake. 
Why should the nations say,
   ‘Where is their God?’
Let the avenging of the outpoured blood of your servants
   be known among the nations before our eyes. 

Let the groans of the prisoners come before you;
   according to your great power preserve those doomed to die. 
Return sevenfold into the bosom of our neighbours
   the taunts with which they taunted you, O Lord! 
Then we your people, the flock of your pasture,
   will give thanks to you for ever;
   from generation to generation we will recount your praise.
