Wednesday of Trinity Sunday


First Reading: Prov. 22:1-21

 1A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

 2The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.

 3A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.

 4By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.

 5Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.

 6Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

 7The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.

 8He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.

 9He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.

 10Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.

 11He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.

 12The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.

 13The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.

 14The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein.

 15Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

 16He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.

 17Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.

 18For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.

 19That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.

 20Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,

 21That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?

Second Reading: John 18:1-14

 1When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

 2And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

 3Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

 4Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

 5They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

 6As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

 7Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

 8Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way:

 9That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

 10Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

 11Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

 12Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,

 13And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.

 14Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
