Saturday of Exaudi (Sunday after the Ascension)


First Reading: Num. 20:22-21:9

 22And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, journeyed from Kadesh, and came unto mount Hor.

 23And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying,

 24Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.

 25Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor:

 26And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son: and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall die there.

 27And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.

 28And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.

 29And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.

 1And when king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south, heard tell that Israel came by the way of the spies; then he fought against Israel, and took some of them prisoners.

 2And Israel vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou wilt indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.

 3And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah.

 4And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.

 5And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

 6And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

 7Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

 8And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

 9And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

Second Reading: Lk. 20:45-21:19

 45Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,

 46Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

 47Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.

 1And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury.

 2And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites.

 3And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all:

 4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

 5And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,

 6As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

 7And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

 8And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

 9But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

 10Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

 11And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

 12But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.

 13And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

 14Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

 15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

 16And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

 17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

 18But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

 19In your patience possess ye your souls.
