Old Testament Lesson
34:29 Moses came down from Mount Sinai. As he came down from the mountain with the two tablets of the covenant in his hand, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, the skin of his face was shining, and they were afraid to come near him.31 But Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the leaders of the congregation returned to him, and Moses spoke with them. 32 Afterwards all the Israelites came near, and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. 33 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil on his face; 34 but whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he would take the veil off, until he came out; and when he came out, and told the Israelites what he had been commanded, 35 the Israelites would see the face of Moses, that the skin of his face was shining; and Moses would put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
|1||The LORD is King;|
| let the people tremble; *|
|he is enthroned upon the cherubim;|
| let the earth shake.|
|2||The LORD is great in Zion; *|
|he is high above all peoples.|
|3||Let them confess his Name, which is great and awesome; *|
|he is the Holy One.|
|4||""O mighty King, lover of justice,|
| you have established equity; *|
|you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.""|
|5||Proclaim the greatness of the LORD our God|
| and fall down before his footstool; *|
|he is the Holy One.|
|6||Moses and Aaron among his priests,|
| and Samuel among those who call upon his Name, *|
|they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.|
|7||He spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud; *|
|they kept his testimonies and the decree that he gave them.|
|8||""O LORD our God, you answered them indeed; *|
|you were a God who forgave them,|
| yet punished them for their evil deeds.""|
|9||Proclaim the greatness of the LORD our God|
| and worship him upon his holy hill; *|
|for the LORD our God is the Holy One.|
New Testament Lesson
1 Corinthians 12:27-13:13
12:27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. 28 And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assistance, forms of leadership, various kinds of tongues. 29 Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all possess gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? 31 But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way. 13:1 If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient; love is kind;love is not envious or boastful or arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. 7 It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. 9 For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; 10 but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. 13 And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
9:28 Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. 30 Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. 31 They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.32 Now Peter and his companions were weighed down with sleep; but since they had stayed awake, they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. 33 Just as they were leaving him, Peter said to Jesus, ''Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah''-not knowing what he said. 34 While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were terrified as they entered the cloud. 35 Then from the cloud came a voice that said, ''This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!'' 36 When the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and in those days told no one any of the things they had seen.
