Monday of Exaudi (Sunday after the Ascension)


First Reading: Num. 14:26-45


 26And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

 27How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

 28Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

 29Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward which have murmured against me.

 30Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

 31But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

 32But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.

 33And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

 34After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

 35I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

 36And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,

 37Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the LORD.

 38But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

 39And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.

 40And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned.

 41And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.

 42Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies.

 43For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away from the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you.

 44But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.

 45Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.



Second Reading: Lk. 18:35-19:10


 35And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the way side begging:

 36And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

 37And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

 38And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

 39And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

 40And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him,

 41Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight.

 42And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

 43And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

 1And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

 2And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

 3And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

 4And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

 5And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

 6And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

 7And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

 8And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

 9And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

 10For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
