Reading (1 Peter 1:3-9)
 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah from the dead,
 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Yeshua the Messiah:
 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:  Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
Gospel (Mark 10:17-27)
 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?
 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.
 Then Yeshua beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.
 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Yeshua answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
 And Yeshua looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

First Reading (Sirach 27:4-7)
 When a sieve is shaken, the refuse remains; so a man’s filth remains in his thoughts.  The kiln tests the potter’s vessels; so the test of a man is in his reasoning.
 The fruit discloses the cultivation of a tree; so the expression of a thought discloses the cultivation of a man’s mind.
 Do not praise a man before you hear him reason, for this is the test of men.
First Reading (1 Corinthians 15:54-58)
 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?  The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Gospel (Luke 6:39-45)
 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
 The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.
 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Reading (James 5:13-20)
 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.  Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
Gospel (Mark 10:13-16)
 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
 But when Yeshua saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.

Reading (James 5:9-12)
 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
Gospel (Mark 10:1-12)
 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again.
 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him.
 And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you?
 And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away.
 And Yeshua answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.
 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter.
 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.
 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Reading (James 5:1-6)
 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.
Gospel (Mark 9:41-50)
 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Yeshua, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

Reading (James 4:13-17)
 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
Gospel (Mark 9:38-40)
 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us.
 But Yeshua said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
 For he that is not against us is on our part.

Reading (1 Peter 5:1-4)
 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed:
 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
 Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being examples to the flock.
 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
Gospel (Matthew 16:13-19)
 When Yeshua came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the living God.
 And Yeshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Reading (James 3:13-18)
 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Gospel (Mark 9:14-29)
 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not.
 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me.
 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming.
 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child.
 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
 Yeshua said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
 When Yeshua saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
 But Yeshua took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?
 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
