Monday of Jubilate (Easter 4)


First Reading: Lev. 9:1-24


 1And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

 2And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.

 3And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;

 4Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the LORD will appear unto you.

 5And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.

 6And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.

 7And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.

 8Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.

 9And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:

 10But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.

 11And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.

 12And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.

 13And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.

 14And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt offering on the altar.

 15And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.

 16And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner.

 17And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.

 18He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,

 19And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:

 20And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the altar:

 21And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.

 22And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.

 23And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.

 24And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.



Second Reading: Lk. 9:18-36


 18And it came to pass, as he was alone praying, his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?

 19They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again.

 20He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.

 21And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing;

 22Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.

 23And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

 24For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

 25For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?

 26For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

 27But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

 28And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.

 29And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.

 30And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:

 31Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.

 32But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.

 33And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said.

 34While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.

 35And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

 36And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of those things which they had seen.
