Reading (Ezra 9:5-9)
 And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the Lord my God,
 And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.
 Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.
 And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.
 For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.
Gospel (Luke 9:1-6)
 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.
 And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.
 And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.
 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.
 And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, and healing every where.

Reading (Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-13)
 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,  One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Messiah.
 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Messiah:
 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Messiah:
Gospel (Matthew 9:9-13)
 And as Yeshua passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
 And it came to pass, as Yeshua sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
 But when Yeshua heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
