Wednesday of Rogate (Easter 6)

First Reading: Num. 10:11-36

The Tribes Leave Sinai

 11Now in (A)the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth of the month, the cloud was lifted from over the tabernacle of the testimony;

 12and the sons of Israel set out on (B)their journeys from the wilderness of Sinai Then the cloud settled down in the (C)wilderness of Paran.

 13(D)So they moved out for the first time according to the commandment of the LORD through Moses.

 14The standard of the camp of the sons of Judah, according to their armies, (E)set out first, with Nahshon the son of Amminadab, over its army,

 15and Nethanel the son of Zuar, over the tribal army of the sons of Issachar;

 16and Eliab the son of Helon over the tribal army of the sons of Zebulun.

 17(F)Then the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari, who were carrying the tabernacle, set out.

 18Next (G)the standard of the camp of Reuben, according to their armies, set out with Elizur the son of Shedeur, over its army,

 19and Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai over the tribal army of the sons of Simeon,

 20and Eliasaph the son of Deuel was over the tribal army of the sons of Gad.

 21(H)Then the Kohathites set out, carrying the holy objects; and (I)the tabernacle was set up before their arrival.

 22(J)Next the standard of the camp of the sons of Ephraim, according to their armies, was set out, with Elishama the son of Ammihud over its army,

 23and Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur over the tribal army of the sons of Manasseh;

 24and Abidan the son of Gideoni over the tribal army of the sons of Benjamin.

 25(K)Then the standard of the camp of the sons of Dan, according to their armies, which formed the (L)rear guard for all the camps, set out, with Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai over its army,

 26and Pagiel the son of Ochran over the tribal army of the sons of Asher;

 27and Ahira the son of Enan over the tribal army of the sons of Naphtali.

 28This was the order of march of the sons of Israel by their armies as they set out.

 29Then Moses said to (M)Hobab the son of (N)Reuel the Midianite, Moses' father-in-law, "We are setting out to the place of which the LORD said, '(O)I will give it to you'; (P)come with us and we will do you good, for the LORD (Q)has promised good concerning Israel."

 30But he said to him, "(R)I will not come, but rather will go to my own land and relatives."

 31Then he said, "Please do not leave us, inasmuch as you know where we should camp in the wilderness, and you (S)will be as eyes for us.

 32"So it will be, if you go with us, that (T)whatever good the LORD does for us, (U)we will do for you."

 33(V)Thus they set out from the mount of the LORD three days' journey, with (W)the ark of the covenant of the LORD journeying in front of them for the three days, to seek out (X)a resting place for them.

 34(Y)The cloud of the LORD was over them by day when they set out from the camp.

 35Then it came about when the ark set out that Moses said,
         "(Z)Rise up, O LORD!
         And let Your enemies be scattered,
         And let those (AA)who hate You flee [a]before You."

 36When it came to rest, he said,
         "(AB)Return, O LORD,
         To the myriad (AC)thousands of Israel."

Second Reading: Lk. 16:19-31

The Rich Man and Lazarus

 19"Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day.

 20"And a poor man named Lazarus (A)was laid at his gate, covered with sores,

 21and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man's table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores.

 22"Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to (B)Abraham's bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried.

 23"In (C)Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom.

 24"And he cried out and said, '(D)Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in (E)this flame.'

 25"But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that (F)during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony.

 26'And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.'

 27"And he said, 'Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father's house--

 28for I have five brothers--in order that he may (G)warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.'

 29"But Abraham said, 'They have (H)Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.'

 30"But he said, 'No, (I)father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!'

 31"But he said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.'"
