Epiphany 4


Explanation of the Week

In Jonah we see ourselves. For Jonah fled from the presence of the Lord (Jonah 1:1-17), even as we sinners turn our backs on God and go our own way. This brings the storm of God's judgment. But in Jonah we also see Christ. For even as he was in the great fish for three days and three nights, so also Christ Jesus was buried in the depths of death for us and raised on the third day. The Lord of creation, who rules over the wind and the wave (Mt 8:23-27), saved us from the fury of divine wrath by taking the judgment in His own body. His love is the fulfillment of the Law. (Rom 13:8-10) Though our faith be weak in the face of peril, yet we are kept in safety on the ship of the church; for the Son of God is with us. Though the whole creation groans with us under the curse, yet by Jesus' speaking there is a great calm. For we know that our present sufferings are not worthy to be compared with the glory to be revealed in us. (Rom 8:18-23)

Introit

Antiphon:
They cry out to the LORD in their | trouble,*
     and He brings them out of | their distresses.
He | calms the storm,*
     so that its | waves are still. (Psalm 107:28-29)

Psalm:
Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for | He is good!*
     For His mercy endures for- | ever.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His | goodness,*
     and for His wonderful works to the child- | ren of men!
They see the works | of the LORD,*
     and His wonders | in the deep.
For He commands the | stormy wind,*
     which lifts up the waves | of the sea. (Psalm 107:1, 8, 24-25)

Collect (LSB)

Almighty God, You know we live in the midst of so many dangers that in our frailty we cannot stand upright. Grant strength and protection to support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ, You Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Collect (TLH)

Almighty God, who knowest us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers that by reason of the fraility of our nature we cannot always stand upright, grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Collecta Latina

Deus qui nos in tantis periculis constitutos pro humana scis fragilitate non posse subsistere, da nobis salutem mentis et corporis, ut ea quae pro peccatis nostris nos affligunt, te adjuvante vincamus.

Old Testament (LSB): Jonah 1:1-17


Jonah's Disobedience

 1The word of the LORD came to (A)Jonah the son of Amittai saying,

 2"Arise, go to (B)Nineveh the great city and (C)cry against it, for their (D)wickedness has come up before Me."

 3But Jonah rose up to flee to (E)Tarshish (F)from the presence of the LORD So he went down to (G)Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.

 4The (H)LORD hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up.

 5Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to (I)his god, and they (J)threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep.

 6So the captain approached him and said, "How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, (K)call on your god Perhaps your (L)god will be concerned about us so that we will not perish."

 7Each man said to his mate, "Come, let us (M)cast lots so we may learn on whose account this calamity has struck us " So they cast lots and the (N)lot fell on Jonah.

 8Then they said to him, "(O)Tell us, now! On whose account has this calamity struck us? What is your (P)occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?"

 9He said to them, "I am a (Q)Hebrew, and I (R)fear the LORD (S)God of heaven who (T)made the sea and the dry land."

 10Then the men became extremely frightened and they said to him, "How could you do this?" For the men knew that he was (U)fleeing from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them.

 11So they said to him, "What should we do to you that the sea may become calm for us?"--for the sea was becoming increasingly stormy.

 12He said to them, "Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I know that (V)on account of me this great storm has come upon you."

 13However, the men rowed desperately to return to land but they could not, for the sea was becoming even stormier against them.

 14Then they called on the (W)LORD and said, "We earnestly pray, O LORD, do not let us perish on account of this man's life and do not put innocent blood on us; for (X)You, O LORD, have done as You have pleased."

 15So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea (Y)stopped its raging.

 16Then the men feared the LORD greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the LORD and made (Z)vows.

 17And the LORD appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the (AA)stomach of the fish three days and three nights.

         I have given Egypt as your ransom,
         (L)Cush and Seba in your place.

 25And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, "(B)Save us, Lord; we are perishing!"

 26He said to them, "Why are you afraid, (C)you men of little faith?" Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm.

 27The men were amazed, and said, "What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?"

The Reign of the LORD'S Anointed.

    1Why are (A)the nations in an uproar
         And the peoples (B)devising a vain thing?
    2The (C)kings of the earth take their stand
         And the rulers take counsel together
         (D)Against the LORD and against His [a](E)Anointed, saying,
    3"Let us (F)tear their fetters apart
         And cast away their cords from us!"
    4He who [b]sits in the heavens (G)laughs,
         The Lord (H)scoffs at them.
    5Then He will speak to them in His (I)anger
         And (J)terrify them in His fury, saying,
    6"But as for Me, I have installed (K)My King
         Upon Zion, (L)My holy mountain."
    7"I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD:
         He said to Me, 'You are (M)My Son,
         Today I have begotten You.
    8'Ask of Me, and (N)I will surely give (O)the nations as Your inheritance,
         And the very (P)ends of the earth as Your possession.
    9'You shall [c](Q)break them with a rod of iron,
         You shall (R)shatter them like earthenware.'"
    10Now therefore, O kings, (S)show discernment;
         Take warning, O [d]judges of the earth.
    11Worship the LORD with (T)reverence
         And rejoice with (U)trembling.
    12Do homage to (V)the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
         For (W)His wrath may [e]soon be kindled
         How blessed are all who (X)take refuge in Him!

First Reading: Zech. 14:1-21


God Will Battle Jerusalem's Foes

 1Behold, a (A)day is coming for the LORD when (B)the spoil taken from you will be divided among you.

 2For I will (C)gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the (D)houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.

 3Then the LORD will go forth and (E)fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.

 4In that day His feet will (F)stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be (G)split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.

 5You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the (H)earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah (I)Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!

 6In that day there will be (J)no light; the luminaries will dwindle.

 7For it will be (K)a unique day which is (L)known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at (M)evening time there will be light.

 8And in that day (N)living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.

God Will Be King over All

 9And the LORD will be (O)king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only (P)one, and His name the only one.

 10All the land will be changed into a plain from (Q)Geba to (R)Rimmon south of Jerusalem; but Jerusalem will (S)rise and (T)remain on its site from (U)Benjamin's Gate as far as the place of the First Gate to the (V)Corner Gate, and from the (W)Tower of Hananel to the king's wine presses.

 11People will live in it, and there will (X)no longer be a curse, for Jerusalem will (Y)dwell in security.

 12Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will (Z)rot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth.

 13It will come about in that day that a great panic from the LORD will fall on them; and they will (AA)seize one another's hand, and the hand of one will be lifted against the hand of another.

 14(AB)Judah also will fight at Jerusalem; and the (AC)wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered, gold and silver and garments in great abundance.

 15So also like this (AD)plague will be the plague on the horse, the mule, the camel, the donkey and all the cattle that will be in those camps.

 16Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will (AE)go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the (AF)Feast of Booths.

 17And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the (AG)King, the LORD of hosts, there will be (AH)no rain on them.

 18If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no rain will fall on them; it will be the (AI)plague with which the LORD smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.

 19This will be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.

 20In that day there will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, "(AJ)HOLY TO THE LORD " And the (AK)cooking pots in the LORD'S house will be like the bowls before the altar.

 21Every cooking pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be (AL)holy to the LORD of hosts; and all who sacrifice will come and take of them and boil in them And there will no longer be a (AM)Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts in that day.

 13looking for the blessed hope and the (J)appearing of the glory of (K)our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,

 14who (L)gave Himself for us (M)to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to (N)purify for Himself a (O)people for His own possession, (P)zealous for good deeds.

 15These things speak and (Q)exhort and (R)reprove with all authority (S)Let no one disregard you.

Godly Living

 4But when the (AG)kindness of (AH)God our Savior and His love for mankind (AI)appeared,

 5(AJ)He saved us, (AK)not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but (AL)according to His mercy, by the (AM)washing of regeneration and (AN)renewing by the Holy Spirit,

 6(AO)whom He poured out upon us (AP)richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

 7so that being justified by His grace we would be made (AQ)heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

 11knowing that such a man is (BD)perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.
