Cyril and Methodius, Missionaries to the Slavs

First Reading: Ex. 40:17-38

 17Now (A)in the first month of the second year, on the first day of the month, the tabernacle was erected.

 18Moses erected the tabernacle and laid its sockets, and set up its boards, and inserted its bars and erected its pillars.

 19He spread the tent over the tabernacle and put the covering of the tent on top of it, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 20Then he took (B)the testimony and put it into the ark, and attached the poles to the ark, and put the mercy seat on top of the ark.

 21He brought the ark into the tabernacle, and (C)set up a veil for the screen, and screened off the ark of the testimony, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 22Then he (D)put the table in the tent of meeting on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil.

 23He set the arrangement of (E)bread in order on it before the LORD, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 24Then he placed the lampstand in the tent of meeting, opposite the table, on the south side of the tabernacle.

 25He (F)lighted the lamps before the LORD, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 26Then he (G)placed the gold altar in the tent of meeting in front of the veil;

 27and he (H)burned fragrant incense on it, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 28Then he set up the veil for the doorway of the tabernacle.

 29He (I)set the altar of burnt offering before the doorway of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and (J)offered on it the burnt offering and the meal offering, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 30He placed the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water in it for washing.

 31(K)From it Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet.

 32When they entered the tent of meeting, and when they approached the altar, they washed, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

 33He (L)erected the court all around the tabernacle and the altar, and hung up the veil for the gateway of the court. Thus Moses finished the work.

The Glory of the LORD
 34(M)Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the (N)glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

 35Moses (O)was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.

 36Throughout all their journeys (P)whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the sons of Israel would set out;

 37but (Q)if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day when it was taken up.

 38For throughout all their journeys, (R)the cloud of the LORD was on the tabernacle by day, and there was fire in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel.

Miracles of Healing

 40(A)And as Jesus returned, the people welcomed Him, for they had all been waiting for Him.

 41(B)And there came a man named Jairus, and he was an (C)official of the synagogue; and he fell at Jesus' feet, and began to implore Him to come to his house;

 42for he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. But as He went, the crowds were pressing against Him.

 43And a woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years, and could not be healed by anyone,

 44came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak, and immediately her hemorrhage stopped.

 45And Jesus said, "Who is the one who touched Me?" And while they were all denying it, Peter said, "(D)Master, the people are crowding and pressing in on You."

 46But Jesus said, "Someone did touch Me, for I was aware that (E)power had gone out of Me."

 47When the woman saw that she had not escaped notice, she came trembling and fell down before Him, and declared in the presence of all the people the reason why she had touched Him, and how she had been immediately healed.

 48And He said to her, "Daughter, (F)your faith has made you well; (G)go in peace."

 49While He was still speaking, someone came from the house of (H)the synagogue official, saying, "Your daughter has died; do not trouble the Teacher anymore."

 50But when Jesus heard this, He answered him, "(I)Do not be afraid any longer; only believe, and she will be made well."

 51When He came to the house, He did not allow anyone to enter with Him, except Peter and John and James, and the girl's father and mother.

 52Now they were all weeping and (J)lamenting for her; but He said, "Stop weeping, for she has not died, but (K)is asleep."

 53And they began laughing at Him, knowing that she had died.

 54He, however, took her by the hand and called, saying, "Child, arise!"

 55And her spirit returned, and she got up immediately; and He gave orders for something to be given her to eat.

 56Her parents were amazed; but He (L)instructed them to tell no one what had happened.
