Monday of Invocavit (Lent 1)

First Reading: Gen. 6:1-7:5

 1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

 3And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

 4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

 5And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

 6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

 7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

 8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

 9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

 10And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

 11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

 12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

 13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

 14Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

 15And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

 16A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

 17And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

 18But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

 19And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.

 20Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

 21And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.

 22Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

 1And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

 2Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

 3Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

 4For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

 5And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.

Second Reading: Mk. 3:1-19

 1And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

 2And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.

 3And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

 4And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.

 5And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

 6And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

 7But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

 8And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

 9And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should throng him.

 10For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

 11And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God.

 12And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.

 13And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.

 14And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,

 15And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

 16And Simon he surnamed Peter;

 17And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:

 18And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

 19And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
