Wednesday of Rogate (Easter 6)


First Reading: Num. 10:11-36


 11And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the tabernacle of the testimony.

 12And the children of Israel took their journeys out of the wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the wilderness of Paran.

 13And they first took their journey according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

 14In the first place went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host was Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

 15And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar was Nethaneel the son of Zuar.

 16And over the host of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon.

 17And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle.

 18And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according to their armies: and over his host was Elizur the son of Shedeur.

 19And over the host of the tribe of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

 20And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

 21And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and the other did set up the tabernacle against they came.

 22And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set forward according to their armies: and over his host was Elishama the son of Ammihud.

 23And over the host of the tribe of the children of Manasseh was Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

 24And over the host of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gideoni.

 25And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set forward, which was the rereward of all the camps throughout their hosts: and over his host was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

 26And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran.

 27And over the host of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enan.

 28Thus were the journeyings of the children of Israel according to their armies, when they set forward.

 29And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses' father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.

 30And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.

 31And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes.

 32And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.

 33And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days' journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days' journey, to search out a resting place for them.

 34And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp.

 35And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

 36And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel.



Second Reading: Lk. 16:19-31


 19There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

 20And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

 21And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

 22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

 23And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

 24And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

 25But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

 26And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

 27Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

 28For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

 29Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

 30And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

 31And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
