First Reading · Ex. 23:14-33

 14(A) "Three times in the year you shall keep a feast to me. 15(B) You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days at the appointed time in the month of(C) Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt.(D) None shall appear before me empty-handed. 16You shall keep(E) the Feast of Harvest, of the firstfruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field. You shall keep the(F) Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in from the field the fruit of your labor. 17(G) Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord GOD.

 18(H) "You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with anything leavened, or let the fat of my feast remain until the morning.

 19"The best of the(I) firstfruits of your ground you shall bring into the house of the LORD your God.


   (J) "You shall not boil a young goat in its mother’s milk.

Conquest of Canaan Promised
 20(K) "Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. 21Pay careful attention to him and obey his voice;(L) do not rebel against him,(M) for he will not pardon your transgression, for my name is in him.

 22"But if you carefully obey his voice and do all that I say, then(N) I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.

 23(O) "When my angel goes before you and brings you(P) to the Amorites and the Hittites and the Perizzites and the Canaanites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, and I blot them out, 24you shall(Q) not bow down to their gods nor serve them,(R) nor do as they do, but(S) you shall utterly overthrow them and break their(T) pillars in pieces. 25You(U) shall serve the LORD your God, and(V) he[a] will bless your bread and your water, and(W) I will take sickness away from among you. 26(X) None shall miscarry or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the(Y) number of your days. 27I will send(Z) my terror before you and will throw into(AA) confusion all the people against whom you shall come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. 28And(AB) I will send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Hivites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites from before you. 29(AC) I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the wild beasts multiply against you. 30Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and possess the land. 31(AD) And I will set your border from the Red Sea to the Sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the Euphrates, for(AE) I will give the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. 32(AF) You shall make no covenant with them and their gods. 33They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me; for if you serve their gods,(AG) it will surely be a snare to you."

Second Reading · Lk. 4:31-44

Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Demon

 31(A) And he(B) went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee. And(C) he was teaching them(D) on the Sabbath, 32and(E) they were astonished at his teaching, for his word possessed authority. 33And(F) in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, 34"Ha![a](G) What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us?(H) I know who you are—(I) the Holy One of God." 35But Jesus(J) rebuked him, saying, "Be silent and come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm. 36And(K) they were all amazed and said to one another, "What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!" 37And(L) reports about him went out into every place in the surrounding region.

Jesus Heals Many

 38(M) And he arose and left the synagogue and entered Simon’s house. Now(N) Simon’s mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they appealed to him on her behalf. 39And he stood over her and(O) rebuked the fever, and it left her, and immediately she rose and began to serve them.

 40Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and(P) he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. 41(Q) And demons also came out of many,(R) crying, "You are(S) the Son of God!" But he rebuked them and(T) would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.

Jesus Preaches in Synagogues

 42(U) And when it was day, he departed and went(V) into a desolate place. And(W) the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them, 43but he said to them, (X) "I must(Y) preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose." 44And he was preaching(Z) in the synagogues of Judea.[b]
