Explanation of the Week

The seeing are blind, while the one who is blind can see. (Lk 18:31-43) Jesus tells the twelve that He is going up to Jerusalem to suffer and die and rise again. But they cannot understand or grasp what He is saying. The meaning of His words is hidden from their sight. However, as Jesus makes His way up to Jerusalem, a blind man calls out to Him for mercy. This blind man sees that Jesus is the Messiah-Savior; for he calls Him "Son of David." Indeed, Jesus is the Lord's anointed, the keeper of sheep (I Samuel 16:1-13) who goes to lay down His life for the sheep. He is the incarnate love of the Father who suffers long and is kind, who is not puffed up, who never fails us. (1 Cor 13:1-13) Jesus opens the eyes of the blind (Is 35:3-7) to see Him not according to outward appearances of lowliness, but according to His heart of mercy and compassion. Those who behold Him thus by faith follow Him to the cross through death into life.


Be my rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to | save me.*
     For You are my rock and my | fortress.
Therefore, for Your | name's sake,*
     lead me and | guide me. (Psalm 31:2-3)

In You, O LORD, I put my trust; let me never | be ashamed;*
     deliver me in Your | righteousness.
Into Your hand I commit my | spirit;*
     You have redeemed me, O LORD | God of truth.
Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am in | trouble;*
     my eye wastes a- | way with grief.
Make Your face shine upon Your | servant;*
     save me for Your | mercies' sake. (Psalm 31:1, 5, 9, 16)

Collect (TLH)

Old Testament (LSB): 1 Sam. 16:1-13

David Anointed King

 1The LORD said to Samuel,(A) "How long will you grieve over Saul, since(B) I have rejected him from being king over Israel?(C) Fill your horn with oil, and go. I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite,(D) for I have provided for myself a king among his sons." 2And Samuel said, "How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me." And the LORD said, "Take a heifer with you and say,(E) 'I have come to sacrifice to the LORD.' 3And invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do.(F) And you shall anoint for me him whom I declare to you." 4Samuel did what the LORD commanded and came to Bethlehem. The elders of the city(G) came to meet him trembling and said,(H) "Do you come peaceably?" 5And he said, "Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice to the LORD.(I) Consecrate yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice." And he consecrated Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.

 6When they came, he looked on(J) Eliab and thought, "Surely the LORD’s anointed is before him." 7But the LORD said to Samuel,(K) "Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance,(L) but the LORD looks on the heart." 8Then Jesse called(M) Abinadab and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, "Neither has the LORD chosen this one." 9Then Jesse made(N) Shammah pass by. And he said, "Neither has the LORD chosen this one." 10And Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, "The LORD has not chosen these." 11Then Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all your sons here?" And he said,(O) "There remains yet the youngest,[a] but behold, he is keeping the sheep." And Samuel said to Jesse,(P) "Send and get him, for we will not sit down till he comes here." 12And he sent and brought him in. Now he was(Q) ruddy and had beautiful eyes and was handsome. And the LORD said,(R) "Arise, anoint him, for this is he." 13Then Samuel took(S) the horn of oil(T) and anointed him in the midst of his brothers.(U) And the Spirit of the LORD rushed upon David from that day forward. And Samuel rose up and went to Ramah.

   the grass shall become reeds and rushes.

Epistle: 1 Cor. 13:1-13

The Way of Love

 1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2And if I have(A) prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith,(B) so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3(C) If I give away all I have, and(D) if I deliver up my body to be burned,[a] but have not love, I gain nothing.

 4(E) Love is patient and(F) kind; love(G) does not envy or boast; it(H) is not arrogant 5or rude. It(I) does not insist on its own way; it(J) is not irritable or resentful;[b] 6it(K) does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but(L) rejoices with the truth. 7(M) Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,(N) endures all things.

 8Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9For(O) we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but(P) when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12For(Q) now we see in a mirror dimly, but(R) then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as(S) I have been fully known.

 13So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Gospel: Luke 18:31-43

Jesus Foretells His Death a Third Time

 31(A) And taking the twelve, he said to them, "See,(B) we are going up to Jerusalem, and(C) everything that is written about the Son of Man by the prophets will be accomplished. 32For he will be(D) delivered over to the Gentiles and will be(E) mocked and shamefully treated and(F) spit upon. 33And after flogging him, they will kill him, and on(G) the third day he will rise." 34(H) But they understood none of these things.(I) This saying was hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.

Jesus Heals a Blind Beggar

 35(J) As he drew near to Jericho,(K) a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36And hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what this meant. 37They told him,(L) "Jesus of Nazareth is passing by." 38And he cried out, "Jesus,(M) Son of David, have mercy on me!" 39And those who were in front(N) rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" 40And Jesus stopped and commanded him to be brought to him. And when he came near, he asked him, 41(O) "What do you want me to do for you?" He said, "Lord, let me recover my sight." 42And Jesus said to him, "Recover your sight;(P) your faith has(Q) made you well." 43And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him,(R) glorifying God. And(S) all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

I Will Bless the LORD

Of David.

 1(A) Vindicate me, O LORD,
   for I have(B) walked in my integrity,
   and I have(C) trusted in the LORD without wavering. 2(D) Prove me, O LORD, and try me;
   test my heart and(E) my mind.[a] 3For your(F) steadfast love is before my eyes,
   and I(G) walk in your faithfulness.

 4I do not(H) sit with men of(I) falsehood,
   nor do I consort with hypocrites. 5I(J) hate the assembly of evildoers,
   and I will not sit with the wicked.

 6I(K) wash my hands in innocence
   and go around your altar, O LORD, 7proclaiming thanksgiving aloud,
   and telling all your(L) wondrous deeds.

 8O LORD, I(M) love the habitation of your house
   and the place where your glory dwells. 9(N) Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
   nor my life with bloodthirsty men, 10in whose hands are evil devices,
   and whose right hands are full of(O) bribes.

 11But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
   redeem me, and be gracious to me. 12My foot stands on(P) level ground;
   in(Q) the great assembly I will bless the LORD.

First Reading: Job 34:10-33

 10"Therefore, hear me, you men of understanding:
   far be it from God that he should(A) do wickedness,
   and from the Almighty that he should do wrong. 11For according to(B) the work of a man he will repay him,
   and(C) according to his ways he will make it befall him. 12Of a truth, God will not do wickedly,
   and(D) the Almighty will not pervert justice. 13Who gave him charge over the earth,
   and who(E) laid on him[a] the whole world? 14If he should(F) set his heart to it
   and(G) gather to himself his(H) spirit and his breath, 15all flesh would perish together,
   and man would(I) return to dust.

 16"If you have understanding, hear this;
   listen to what I say. 17(J) Shall one who hates justice govern?
   Will you condemn him who is righteous and mighty, 18who(K) says to a king, 'Worthless one,'
   and to nobles, 'Wicked man,' 19who(L) shows no partiality to princes,
   nor regards the rich(M) more than the poor,
   for(N) they are all the work of his hands? 20In a moment(O) they die;
   at(P) midnight the people are shaken and pass away,
   and the mighty are taken away by(Q) no human hand.

 21"For his eyes are on(R) the ways of a man,
   and he sees all his steps. 22There is no(S) gloom or(T) deep darkness
   where evildoers may hide themselves. 23For God[b] has no need to consider a man further,
   that he should go before God in(U) judgment. 24He(V) shatters the mighty without investigation
   and sets(W) others in their place. 25Thus, knowing their works,
   he(X) overturns them in the night, and they are crushed. 26He strikes them for their wickedness
   in a place for all to see, 27because they turned aside from(Y) following him
   and had no regard for any of his ways, 28so that they(Z) caused the cry of the poor to come to him,
   and he(AA) heard the cry of the afflicted— 29When he is quiet, who can condemn?
   When he hides his face, who can behold him,
   whether it be a nation or a man?— 30that a godless man should not reign,
   that he should not ensnare the people.

 31"For has anyone said to God,
   'I have borne punishment; I will not offend any more; 32(AB) teach me what I do not see;
   if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more'? 33Will he then make repayment to suit you,
   because you reject it?For you must choose, and not I;
   therefore(AC) declare what you know.[c]

The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation

Of David.

 1The LORD is my(A) light and my(B) salvation;
   (C) whom shall I fear?The LORD is the stronghold[a] of my life;
   of whom shall I be afraid?

 2When evildoers assail me
   to(D) eat up my flesh,my adversaries and foes,
   it is they who stumble and fall.

 3(E) Though an army encamp against me,
   my heart shall not fear;though war arise against me,
   yet[b] I will be confident.

 4(F) One thing have I asked of the LORD,
   that will I seek after:that I may(G) dwell in the house of the LORD
   all the days of my life,to gaze upon(H) the beauty of the LORD
   and to inquire[c] in his temple.

 5For he will(I) hide me in his shelter
   in the day of trouble;he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
   he will(J) lift me high upon a rock.

 6And now my(K) head shall be lifted up
   above my enemies all around me,and I will offer in his tent
   sacrifices with shouts of(L) joy;(M) I will sing and make melody to the LORD.

 7(N) Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud;
   be gracious to me and answer me! 8You have said,(O) "Seek[d] my face."My heart says to you,
   "Your face, LORD, do I seek."[e]
 9(P) Hide not your face from me.Turn not your servant away in anger,
   O you who have been my help.Cast me not off; forsake me not,
   (Q) O God of my salvation! 10For(R) my father and my mother have forsaken me,
   but the LORD will(S) take me in.

 11(T) Teach me your way, O LORD,
   and lead me on(U) a level path
   because of my enemies. 12(V) Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
   for(W) false witnesses have risen against me,
   and they(X) breathe out violence.

 13I believe[f] that I shall look upon(Y) the goodness of the LORD
   in(Z) the land of the living! 14(AA) Wait for the LORD;
   (AB) be strong, and let your heart take courage;
   wait for the LORD!

I Am the Resurrection and the Life

 17Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb(A) four days. 18Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles[a] off, 19and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary(B) to console them concerning their brother. 20(C) So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house. 21Martha said to(D) Jesus, "Lord,(E) if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22But even now I know that whatever you ask from God,(F) God will give you." 23Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." 24(G) Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in(H) the resurrection on the last day." 25Jesus said to her, (I) "I am the resurrection and(J) the life.[b] Whoever believes in me,(K) though he die,(L) yet shall he live, 26and everyone who lives and believes in me(M) shall never die. Do you believe this?" 27She said to him, "Yes, Lord;(N) I believe that(O) you are the Christ, the Son of God,(P) who is coming into the world."

Jesus Weeps

 28When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying in private,(Q) "The Teacher is here and is calling for you." 29And when she heard it, she rose quickly and went to him. 30Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha had met him. 31When the Jews(R) who were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary rise quickly and go out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. 32Now when Mary came to where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet, saying to him,(S) "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died." 33When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he(T) was deeply moved in his spirit and(U) greatly troubled. 34And he said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him, "Lord, come and see." 35(V) Jesus wept. 36So the Jews said, "See(W) how he loved him!" 37But some of them said, "Could not he(X) who opened the eyes of the blind man(Y) also have kept this man from dying?"
