Saturday of Oculi (Lent 3)


First Reading: Gen. 41:1-27


 1And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

 2And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well favoured kine and fatfleshed; and they fed in a meadow.

 3And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

 4And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

 5And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.

 6And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

 7And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

 8And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

 9Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

 10Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

 11And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

 12And there was there with us a young man, an Hebrew, servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

 13And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

 14Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

 15And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

 16And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.

 17And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river:

 18And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

 19And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

 20And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

 21And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

 22And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one stalk, full and good:

 23And, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

 24And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

 25And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.

 26The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.

 27And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.



Second Reading: Mk. 11:1-19


 1And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,

 2And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

 3And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.

 4And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

 5And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?

 6And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.

 7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

 8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

 9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

 10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

 11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

 12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

 13And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

 14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

 15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

 16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

 17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

 18And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

 19And when even was come, he went out of the city.
