Reading (1 Kings 11:4-13)
 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.
 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.
 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
 And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.
 And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
 And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the Lord commanded.
 Wherefore the Lord said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
 Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father’s sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
 Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake which I have chosen.
Gospel (Mark 7:24-30)
 And from thence he arose, and went into the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and entered into an house, and would have no man know it: but he could not be hid.
 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
 But Yeshua said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children’s crumbs.
 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.

Reading (1 Kings 10:1-10)
 And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions.
 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
 And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not.
 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built,
 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her.
 And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.
 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.
 Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom.
 Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.
 And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.
Gospel (Mark 7:14-23)
 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.  And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable.
 And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
 Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?  And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,  Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:  All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Reading (1 Kings 8:22-30)
 And Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven:
 And he said, Lord God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart:
 Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day.
 Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me.
 And now, O God of Israel, let thy word, I pray thee, be verified, which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father.
 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?
 Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O Lord my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day:
 That thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of which thou hast said, My name shall be there: that thou mayest hearken unto the prayer which thy servant shall make toward this place.
 And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.
Gospel (Mark 7:1-13)
 Then came together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem.
 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashen, hands, they found fault.
 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders.
 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.
 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?
 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.
 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free.
 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Reading (1 Kings 8:1-13)
 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David, which is Zion.
 And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.  And all the elders of Israel came, and the priests took up the ark.
 And they brought up the ark of the Lord, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, even those did the priests and the Levites bring up.
 And king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel, that were assembled unto him, were with him before the ark, sacrificing sheep and oxen, that could not be told nor numbered for multitude.
 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord unto his place, into the oracle of the house, to the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims.
 For the cherubims spread forth their two wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark and the staves thereof above.
 And they drew out the staves, that the ends of the staves were seen out in the holy place before the oracle, and they were not seen without: and there they are unto this day.
 There was nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when the Lord made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt.
 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the Lord,
 So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.
 Then spake Solomon, The Lord said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
 I have surely built thee an house to dwell in, a settled place for thee to abide in for ever.
Gospel (Mark 6:53-56)
 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew him,
 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard he was.
 And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.

First Reading (Isaiah: 6:1-8)
 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.
 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Second Reading (1 Corinthians 15:1-11)
 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Messiahdied for our sins according to the scriptures;
 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:  And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.  And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.
Gospel (Luke 5:1-11)
 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Yeshua’s knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Yeshua said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.

Reading (1 Kings 3:4-13)
 And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.
 In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
 And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.
 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?
 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.
 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;
 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.
 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.
Gospel (Mark 6:30-34)
 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Yeshua, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.  And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
 And Yeshua, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

Reading (Sirach 47:2-11)
 As the choice fat portion of the fellowship offering is reserved for the Lord, so David was chosen from among the Israelites.  He played with lions and bears as if they were lambs or little goats.
 When he was still a boy, he killed a giant to rescue his people. He put a stone in his sling, took aim, and put an end to Goliath’s bragging.
 He prayed to the Lord, the Most High, and was given the strength to kill that famous soldier, so that the nations would have respect for the power of his people.
 The people honored him for killing his tens of thousands, and when he was crowned king, they praised him for being chosen by the Lord.  He wiped out all his enemies and permanently crushed the Philistines, so that they never again became a threat.
 In everything David did, he gave thanks and praise to the Holy Lord, the Most High. He loved his Creator and sang praises to him with all his heart.  He put singers at the altar to provide beautiful music.
 He set the times of the festivals throughout the year and made them splendid occasions; the Temple rang with the Lord’s praises all day long.
 The Lord forgave David’s sin and established his power forever. He made a covenant with him that he and his descendants would reign in splendor over Israel.
Gospel (Mark 6:14-29)
 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.
 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.
 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.
 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;
 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.
 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

Reading (1 Kings 2:1-4, 10-12)
 Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying,
 I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man;
 And keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:
 That the Lord may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.
 So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.
 And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.
 Then sat Solomon upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established greatly.
Gospel (Mark 6:7-13)
 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.  And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.  And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.

Reading (Malachi 3:1-4)
 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.
 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
Gospel (Luke 2:22-40)
 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;
 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.
 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Yeshua, to do for him after the custom of the law,
 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,  Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,  Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.  And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against;
 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
 And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
 And when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own city Nazareth.
 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Reading (2 Samuel 18:9-10, 14, 24-26, 30-33; 19:1-3)
 And Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away.
 And a certain man saw it, and told Joab, and said, Behold, I saw Absalom hanged in an oak.
 Then said Joab, I may not tarry thus with thee. And he took three darts in his hand, and thrust them through the heart of Absalom, while he was yet alive in the midst of the oak.
 And David sat between the two gates: and the watchman went up to the roof over the gate unto the wall, and lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold a man running alone.
 And the watchman cried, and told the king. And the king said, If he be alone, there is tidings in his mouth. And he came apace, and drew near.
 And the watchman saw another man running: and the watchman called unto the porter, and said, Behold another man running alone. And the king said, He also bringeth tidings.
 And the king said unto him, Turn aside, and stand here. And he turned aside, and stood still.
 And, behold, Cushi came; and Cushi said, Tidings, my lord the king: for the Lord hath avenged thee this day of all them that rose up against thee.
 And the king said unto Cushi, Is the young man Absalom safe? And Cushi answered, The enemies of my lord the king, and all that rise against thee to do thee hurt, be as that young man is.
 And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus he said, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!
[19:1] And it was told Joab, Behold, the king weepeth and mourneth for Absalom.
 And the victory that day was turned into mourning unto all the people: for the people heard say that day how the king was grieved for his son.
 And the people gat them by stealth that day into the city, as people being ashamed steal away when they flee in battle.
Gospel (Mark 5:21-43)
 And when Yeshua was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.
 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
 And Yeshua went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.  And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
 When she had heard of Yeshua, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.  For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
 And Yeshua, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?  And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?
 As soon as Yeshua heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.
 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.
 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.
 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.
 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.
