Tuesday of Jubilate (Easter 4)


First Reading: Lev. 10:1-20


 1And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

 2And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.

 3Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

 4And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.

 5So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.

 6And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled.

 7And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

 8And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,

 9Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:

 10And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

 11And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

 12And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:

 13And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.

 14And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they be thy due, and thy sons' due, which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.

 15The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before the LORD; and it shall be thine, and thy sons' with thee, by a statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.

 16And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,

 17Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD?

 18Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

 19And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD?

 20And when Moses heard that, he was content.



Second Reading: Lk. 9:37-62


 37And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him.

 38And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.

 39And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.

 40And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.

 41And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

 42And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.

 43And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,

 44Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men.

 45But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.

 46Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest.

 47And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him,

 48And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.

 49And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us.

 50And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

 51And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem,

 52And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.

 53And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.

 54And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?

 55But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

 56For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

 57And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

 58And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

 59And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

 60Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

 61And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

 62And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
