Old Testament · Exodus 15:1-18

The Song of Moses

 1Then Moses and the people of Israel(A) sang this song to the LORD, saying,
   (B) "I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously;
   the horse and his rider[a] he has thrown into the sea. 2(C) The LORD is my strength and my(D) song,
   and he has become(E) my salvation;this is my God, and I will praise him,
   (F) my father’s God, and(G) I will exalt him. 3The LORD is(H) a man of war;
   (I) the LORD is his name.

 4(J) "Pharaoh’s chariots and his host he cast into the sea,
   and his chosen(K) officers were sunk in the Red Sea. 5The(L) floods covered them;
   they(M) went down into the depths like a stone. 6(N) Your right hand, O LORD, glorious in power,
   your right hand, O LORD,(O) shatters the enemy. 7In the(P) greatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries;
   you send out your fury; it(Q) consumes them like stubble. 8At the(R) blast of your nostrils the waters piled up;
   the(S) floods stood up in a heap;
   the deeps congealed in the heart of the sea. 9The enemy said,(T) 'I will pursue, I will overtake,
   I(U) will divide the spoil, my desire shall have its fill of them.
   I will draw my sword; my hand shall destroy them.' 10You(V) blew with your wind; the(W) sea covered them;
   they sank like lead in the mighty waters.

 11(X) "Who is like you, O LORD, among the gods?
   Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
   awesome in(Y) glorious deeds,(Z) doing wonders? 12You stretched out(AA) your right hand;
   the earth swallowed them.

 13"You have(AB) led in your steadfast love the people whom(AC) you have redeemed;
   you have(AD) guided them by your strength to your holy abode. 14(AE) The peoples have heard; they tremble;
   pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia. 15Now are the chiefs of Edom(AF) dismayed;
   trembling seizes the leaders of(AG) Moab;
   (AH) all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away. 16Terror and(AI) dread fall upon them;
   because of the greatness of your arm, they are still(AJ) as a stone,till your people, O LORD, pass by,
   till the people pass by whom(AK) you have purchased. 17You will bring them in and(AL) plant them on your own mountain,
   the place, O LORD, which you have made for your abode,
   (AM) the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established. 18(AN) The LORD will reign forever and ever."

Epistle · Acts 10:34-41

Gentiles Hear the Good News

 34So Peter opened his mouth and said: "Truly I understand that(A) God(B) shows no partiality, 35but(C) in every nation anyone who fears him and(D) does what is right is acceptable to him. 36As for(E) the word that he sent to Israel,(F) preaching good news of(G) peace through Jesus Christ ((H) he is Lord of all), 37you yourselves know what happened throughout all Judea,(I) beginning(J) from Galilee after the baptism that John proclaimed: 38how(K) God anointed Jesus of Nazareth(L) with the Holy Spirit and with(M) power. He went about doing good and healing all(N) who were oppressed by the devil,(O) for God was with him. 39And(P) we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem.(Q) They put him to death by hanging him on a tree, 40but(R) God raised him on(S) the third day and made him to(T) appear, 41(U) not to all the people but to us who had been chosen by God as(V) witnesses, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.

Gospel · Luke 24:13-35

On the Road to Emmaus

 13That very day(A) two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles[a] from Jerusalem, 14and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. 15While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. 16(B) But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. 17And he said to them, "What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?" And they stood still, looking sad. 18Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, "Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?" 19And he said to them, "What things?" And they said to him, "Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was(C) a prophet(D) mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20and(E) how our chief priests and(F) rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 21But we had hoped that he was(G) the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now(H) the third day since these things happened. 22Moreover, some women of our company amazed us.(I) They were at the tomb early in the morning, 23and(J) when they did not find his body, they came back saying that(K) they had even seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. 24(L) Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see." 25And he said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26(M) Was it not necessary that(N) the Christ should suffer these things and enter into(O) his glory?" 27And(P) beginning with(Q) Moses and(R) all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

 28So they drew near to the village to which they were going.(S) He acted as if he were going farther, 29but they urged him strongly, saying, "Stay with us, for it is toward evening and(T) the day is now far spent." So he went in to stay with them. 30When he was at table with them, he took the bread and(U) blessed and broke it and gave it to them. 31(V) And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And(W) he vanished from their sight. 32They said to each other,(X) "Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he(Y) opened to us the Scriptures?" 33And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they(Z) found the eleven and(AA) those who were with them gathered together, 34saying, "The Lord has risen indeed, and(AB) has appeared to Simon!" 35Then they told what had happened on the road, and(AC) how he was known to them in(AD) the breaking of the bread.

Second Reading · Heb. 9:1-28

The Earthly Holy Place
 1Now even the first covenant had regulations for worship and(A) an earthly place of holiness. 2For(B) a tent[a] was prepared, the first section, in which were(C) the lampstand and(D) the table and(E) the bread of the Presence.[b] It is called the Holy Place. 3Behind(F) the second curtain was a second section[c] called the Most Holy Place, 4having the golden(G) altar of incense and(H) the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was(I) a golden urn holding the manna, and(J) Aaron’s staff that budded, and(K) the tablets of the covenant. 5Above it were(L) the cherubim of glory overshadowing(M) the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail.

 6These preparations having thus been made,(N) the priests go regularly into the first section, performing their ritual duties, 7but into the second only(O) the high priest goes, and he but(P) once a year, and not without taking blood, which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people. 8By this the Holy Spirit indicates that(Q) the way into the holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section is still standing 9(which is symbolic for the present age).[d] According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered(R) that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper, 10but deal only with(S) food and drink and(T) various washings, regulations for the body imposed until the time of reformation.

Redemption Through the Blood of Christ
 11But when Christ appeared as a high priest(U) of the good things that have come,[e] then through(V) the greater and more perfect tent ((W) not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) 12he(X) entered(Y) once for all into the holy places, not by means of(Z) the blood of goats and calves but(AA) by means of his own blood,(AB) thus securing an eternal redemption. 13For if(AC) the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with(AD) the ashes of a heifer, sanctify[f] for the purification of the flesh, 14how much more will(AE) the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit(AF) offered himself without blemish to God,(AG) purify our[g] conscience(AH) from dead works(AI) to serve the living God.

 15Therefore he is(AJ) the mediator of a new covenant, so that(AK) those who are called may(AL) receive the promised eternal inheritance,(AM) since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant.[h] 16For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. 17For(AN) a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. 18Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated(AO) without blood. 19For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took(AP) the blood of calves and goats,(AQ) with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, 20saying,(AR) "This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you." 21And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both(AS) the tent and all the vessels used in worship. 22Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and(AT) without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

 23Thus it was necessary for(AU) the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24For Christ has entered, not into holy places(AV) made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God(AW) on our behalf. 25Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as(AX) the high priest enters(AY) the holy places every year with blood not his own, 26for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is,(AZ) he has appeared(BA) once for all(BB) at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27And just as(BC) it is appointed for man to die once, and(BD) after that comes judgment, 28so Christ, having been offered once(BE) to bear the sins of(BF) many, will appear(BG) a second time,(BH) not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly(BI) waiting for him.
