FIRST READING Psalm 86:1-10

1. Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. 2. Preserve my life, for I am devoted to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; 3. be gracious to me, O Lord, for to you do I cry all day long. 4. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. 5. For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call on you. 6. Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication. 7. In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me. 8. There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. 9. All the nations you have made shall come and bow down before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. 10. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.


GOSPEL READING Matthew 10:24-39

24. "A disciple is not above the teacher, nor a slave above the master;25. it is enough for the disciple to be like the teacher, and the slave like the master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they malign those of his household!

26. "So have no fear of them; for nothing is covered up that will not be uncovered, and nothing secret that will not become known.27. What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops.28. Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. {Gk [Gehenna]}29. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30. And even the hairs of your head are all counted. 31. So do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32. "Everyone therefore who acknowledges me before others, I also will acknowledge before my Father in heaven; 33. but whoever denies me before others, I also will deny before my Father in heaven.

34. "Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; 36. and one's foes will be members of one's own household. 37. Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; 38. and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.
