Old Testament (LSB): Isaiah 32:14-20

 14Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;

 15Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.

 16Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

 17And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

 18And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;

 19When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.

 20Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.

Epistle: Acts 8:14-17

 14Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

 15Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

 16(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

 17Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

Gospel: John 10:1-10

 1Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

 2But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

 3To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

 4And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

 5And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

 6This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.

 7Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

 8All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.

 9I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

First Reading: Num. 22:21-23:3

 21And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab.

 22And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

 23And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

 24But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

 25And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.

 26And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

 27And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.

 28And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

 29And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

 30And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? and he said, Nay.

 31Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

 32And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:

 33And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

 34And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

 35And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.

 36And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to meet him unto a city of Moab, which is in the border of Arnon, which is in the utmost coast.

 37And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto thee to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able indeed to promote thee to honour?

 38And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak.

 39And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kirjathhuzoth.

 40And Balak offered oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to the princes that were with him.

 41And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost part of the people.

 1And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.

 2And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on every altar a bullock and a ram.

 3And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offering, and I will go: peradventure the LORD will come to meet me: and whatsoever he sheweth me I will tell thee. And he went to an high place.

Second Reading: Lk. 22:24-46

 24And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

 25And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

 26But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

 27For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

 28Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

 29And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

 30That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

 31And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

 32But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

 33And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

 34And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

 35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

 37For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

 38And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

 39And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

 40And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

 41And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

 42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

 43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

 44And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

 45And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

 46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
