Wednesday of Rogate (Easter 6)

First Reading: Num. 10:11-36

Israel Leaves Sinai

 11In the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth day of the month,(A) the cloud lifted from over the tabernacle of the testimony, 12and the people of Israel(B) set out by stages from the(C) wilderness of Sinai. And the cloud settled down in the(D) wilderness of Paran. 13They set out for the first time(E) at the command of the LORD by Moses. 14The standard of the camp of the people of Judah set out(F) first by their companies, and over their company was(G) Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 15And over the company of the tribe of the people of Issachar was Nethanel the son of Zuar. 16And over the company of the tribe of the people of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon.

 17And when(H) the tabernacle was taken down, the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari,(I) who carried the tabernacle, set out. 18And(J) the standard of the camp of Reuben set out by their companies, and over their company was(K) Elizur the son of Shedeur. 19And over the company of the tribe of the people of Simeon was(L) Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. 20And over the company of the tribe of the people of Gad was(M) Eliasaph the son of(N) Deuel.

 21Then the Kohathites set out,(O) carrying the holy things, and(P) the tabernacle was set up before their arrival. 22And(Q) the standard of the camp of the people of Ephraim set out by their companies, and over their company was(R) Elishama the son of Ammihud. 23And over the company of the tribe of the people of Manasseh was(S) Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 24And over the company of the tribe of the people of Benjamin was(T) Abidan the son of Gideoni.

 25Then(U) the standard of the camp of the people of Dan, acting as the(V) rear guard of all the camps, set out by their companies, and over their company was(W) Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 26And over the company of the tribe of the people of Asher was(X) Pagiel the son of Ochran. 27And over the company of the tribe of the people of Naphtali was(Y) Ahira the son of Enan. 28(Z) This was the order of march of the people of Israel by their companies, when they set out.

 29And Moses said to Hobab the son of(AA) Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law, "We are setting out for the place of which the LORD said,(AB) 'I will give it to you.' Come with us, and we will do good to you, for(AC) the LORD has promised good to Israel." 30But he said to him, "I will not go. I will depart to my own land and to my kindred." 31And he said, "Please do not leave us, for you know where we should camp in the wilderness, and you will serve(AD) as eyes for us. 32And if you do go with us,(AE) whatever good the LORD will do to us, the same will we do to you."

 33So they set out from(AF) the mount of the LORD three days’ journey. And the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them three days’ journey, to seek out(AG) a resting place for them. 34(AH) And the cloud of the LORD was over them by day, whenever they set out from the camp.

 35And whenever the ark set out, Moses said,(AI) "Arise, O LORD, and let your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate you flee before you." 36And when it rested, he said, "Return, O LORD, to the ten thousand thousands of Israel."

Second Reading: Lk. 16:19-31

The Rich Man and Lazarus

 19"There was a rich man who was clothed in(A) purple and fine linen and(B) who feasted sumptuously every day. 20And at his gate(C) was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, 21who desired to be fed with(D) what fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22The poor man died and was carried by(E) the angels(F) to Abraham’s side.[a] The rich man also died and was buried, 23and in(G) Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and(H) saw Abraham far off and Lazarus(I) at his side. 24And he called out,(J) 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and(K) cool my tongue, for(L) I am in anguish in this flame.' 25But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that(M) you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.' 27And he said, 'Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— 28for I have five brothers[b]—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.' 29But Abraham said, 'They have(N) Moses and the Prophets;(O) let them hear them.' 30And he said, 'No,(P) father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.' 31He said to him, 'If they do not hear(Q) Moses and the Prophets,(R) neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'"
