Tuesday of Trinity Sunday

First Reading: Prov. 20:5-25

 5Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.

 6Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

 7The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.

 8A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.

 9Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

 10Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.

 11Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.

 12The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.

 13Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.

 14It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.

 15There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

 16Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.

 17Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

 18Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.

 19He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

 20Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.

 21An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed.

 22Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

 23Divers weights are an abomination unto the LORD; and a false balance is not good.

 24Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?

 25It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry.

Second Reading: John 17:1-26

 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
