Tuesday of Trinity Sunday

First Reading: Prov. 20:5-25

    5A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water,
         But a man of understanding draws it out.
    6Many a man (A)proclaims his own loyalty,
         But who can find a (B)trustworthy man?
    7A righteous man who (C)walks in his integrity--
         (D)How blessed are his sons after him.
    8(E)A king who sits on the throne of justice
         Disperses all evil with his eyes.
    9(F)Who can say, "I have cleansed my heart,
         I am pure from my sin"?
    10(G)Differing weights and differing measures,
         Both of them are abominable to the LORD.
    11It is by his deeds that a lad (H)distinguishes himself
         If his conduct is pure and right.
    12The hearing (I)ear and the seeing eye,
         The LORD has made both of them.
    13(J)Do not love sleep, or you will become poor;
         Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with food.
    14"Bad, bad," says the buyer,
         But when he goes his way, then he boasts.
    15There is gold, and an abundance of jewels;
         But the lips of knowledge are a more precious thing.
    16Take his garment when he becomes surety for a stranger;
         And for foreigners, hold him in pledge.
    17(K)Bread obtained by falsehood is sweet to a man,
         But afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel.
    18Prepare (L)plans by consultation,
         And (M)make war by wise guidance.
    19He who (N)goes about as a slanderer reveals secrets,
         Therefore do not associate with (O)a gossip.
    20He who (P)curses his father or his mother,
         His (Q)lamp will go out in time of darkness.
    21An inheritance gained hurriedly at the beginning
         Will not be blessed in the end.
    22(R)Do not say, "I will repay evil";
         (S)Wait for the LORD, and He will save you.
    23(T)Differing weights are an abomination to the LORD,
         And a (U)false scale is not good.
    24(V)Man's steps are ordained by the LORD,
         How then can man understand his way?
    25It is a trap for a man to say rashly, "It is holy!"
         And (W)after the vows to make inquiry.

Second Reading: John 17:1-26

The High Priestly Prayer

 1Jesus spoke these things; and (A)lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, "Father, the hour has come; (B)glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You,

 2even as (C)You gave Him authority over all flesh, that (D)to all whom You have given Him, (E)He may give eternal life.

 3"This is eternal life, that they may know You, (F)the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom (G)You have sent.

 4"(H)I glorified You on the earth, (I)having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.

 5"Now, Father, (J)glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had (K)with You before the world was.

 6"(L)I have manifested Your name to the men whom (M)You gave Me out of the world; they were (N)Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have (O)kept Your word.

 7"Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You;

 8for (P)the words which You gave Me (Q)I have given to them; and they received them and truly understood that (R)I came forth from You, and they believed that (S)You sent Me.

 9"(T)I ask on their behalf; (U)I do not ask on behalf of the world, but of those whom (V)You have given Me; for (W)they are Yours;

 10and (X)all things that are Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been glorified in them.

 11"I am no longer in the world; and yet (Y)they themselves are in the world, and (Z)I come to You (AA)Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name (AB)which You have given Me, that (AC)they may be one even as We are.

 12"While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name (AD)which You have given Me; and I guarded them and (AE)not one of them perished but (AF)the son of perdition, so that the (AG)Scripture would be fulfilled.

The Disciples in the World

 13"But now (AH)I come to You; and (AI)these things I speak in the world so that they may have My (AJ)joy made full in themselves.

 14"I have given them Your word; and (AK)the world has hated them, because (AL)they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 15"I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from (AM)the evil one.

 16"(AN)They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 17"(AO)Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

 18"As (AP)You sent Me into the world, (AQ)I also have sent them into the world.

 19"For their sakes I (AR)sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be (AS)sanctified (AT)in truth.

 20"I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word;

 21that they may all be one; (AU)even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, (AV)so that the world may believe that (AW)You sent Me.

Their Future Glory

 22"The (AX)glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one;

 23(AY)I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that (AZ)You sent Me, and (BA)loved them, even as You have loved Me.

 24"Father, I desire that (BB)they also, whom You have given Me, (BC)be with Me where I am, so that they may see My (BD)glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before (BE)the foundation of the world.

 25"O (BF)righteous Father, although (BG)the world has not known You, yet I have known You; and these have known that (BH)You sent Me;

 26and (BI)I have made Your name known to them, and will make it known, so that (BJ)the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them."
