First Reading · Ex. 16:13-35

 13So it came about at evening that (A)the quails came up and covered the camp, and in the morning (B)there was a layer of dew around the camp.

 14(C)When the layer of dew evaporated, behold, on the surface of the wilderness (D)there was a fine flake-like thing, fine as the frost on the ground.

 15When the sons of Israel saw it, they said to one another, "What is it?" For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, "(E)It is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.

 16"This is what the LORD has commanded, 'Gather of it every man as much as he should eat; you shall take (F)an omer apiece according to the number of persons each of you has in his tent.'"

 17The sons of Israel did so, and some gathered much and some little.

 18When they measured it with an omer, (G)he who had gathered much had no excess, and he who had gathered little had no lack; every man gathered as much as he should eat.

 19Moses said to them, "(H)Let no man leave any of it until morning."

 20But they did not listen to Moses, and some left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and became foul; and Moses was angry with them.

 21They gathered it morning by morning, every man as much as he should eat; but when the sun grew hot, it would melt.

The Sabbath Observed
 22(I)Now on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one When all the (J)leaders of the congregation came and told Moses,

 23then he said to them, "This is what the LORD meant: (K)Tomorrow is a sabbath observance, a holy sabbath to the LORD Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and (L)all that is left over put aside to be kept until morning."

 24So they put it aside until morning, as Moses had ordered, and (M)it did not become foul nor was there any worm in it.

 25Moses said, "Eat it today, for today is a sabbath to the LORD; today you will not find it in the field.

 26"(N)Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the sabbath, there will be none."

 27It came about on the seventh day that some of the people went out to gather, but they found none.

 28Then the LORD said to Moses, "(O)How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My [a]instructions?

 29"See, the LORD has given you the sabbath; therefore He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Remain every man in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day."

 30So the people rested on the seventh day.

 31The house of (P)Israel named it manna, and it was like (Q)coriander seed, white, and its taste was like wafers with honey.

 32Then Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded, 'Let an omerful of it be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread that I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.'"

 33Moses said to Aaron, "(R)Take a jar and put an omerful of manna in it, and place it before the LORD to be kept throughout your generations."

 34As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron placed it before (S)the Testimony, to be kept.

 35(T)The sons of Israel ate the manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land; they ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.

Second Reading · Heb. 10:19-39

A New and Living Way

 19Therefore, brethren, since we (A)have confidence to (B)enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,

 20by (C)a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through (D)the veil, that is, His flesh,

 21and since we have (E)a great priest (F)over the house of God,

 22let us (G)draw near with a sincere heart in (H)full assurance of faith, having our hearts (I)sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies (J)washed with pure water.

 23Let us hold fast the (K)confession of our (L)hope without wavering, for (M)He who promised is faithful;

 24and let us consider how (N)to stimulate one another to love and (O)good deeds,

 25not forsaking our own (P)assembling together, as is the habit of some, but (Q)encouraging one another; and all the more as you see (R)the day drawing near.

Christ or Judgment

 26For if we go on (S)sinning willfully after receiving (T)the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

 27but a terrifying expectation of (U)judgment and (V)THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES.

 28(W)Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.

 29(X)How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve (Y)who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean (Z)the blood of the covenant (AA)by which he was sanctified, and has (AB)insulted the Spirit of grace?

 30For we know Him who said, "(AC)VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY " And again, "(AD)THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE."

 31It is a (AE)terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the (AF)living God.

 32But remember (AG)the former days, when, after being (AH)enlightened, you endured a great (AI)conflict of sufferings,

 33partly by being (AJ)made a public spectacle through reproaches and tribulations, and partly by becoming (AK)sharers with those who were so treated.

 34For you (AL)showed sympathy to the prisoners and accepted (AM)joyfully the seizure of your property, knowing that you have for yourselves (AN)a better possession and a lasting one.

 35Therefore, do not throw away your (AO)confidence, which has a great (AP)reward.

 36For you have need of (AQ)endurance, so that when you have (AR)done the will of God, you may (AS)receive what was promised.

 39But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction, but of those who have faith to the preserving of the soul.
