Saturday of Jubilate (Easter 4)


First Reading: Lev. 19:9-18; Lev. 19:26-37


 9And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest.

 10And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.

 11Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.

 12And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

 13Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.

 14Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.

 15Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.

 16Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour; I am the LORD.

 17Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

 18Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.





 26Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use enchantment, nor observe times.

 27Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.

 28Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD.

 29Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.

 30Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

 31Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

 32Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.

 33And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.

 34But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

 35Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

 36Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye have: I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt.

 37Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.



Second Reading: Lk. 11:14-36


 14And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.

 15But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.

 16And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

 17But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

 18If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

 19And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

 20But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

 21When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

 22But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

 23He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

 24When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

 25And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

 26Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

 27And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

 28But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

 29And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

 30For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.

 31The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

 32The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

 33No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

 34The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.

 35Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

 36If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
