104:1-9, 24, 35c
38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind:
"Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?
Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall
declare to me.
"Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell
me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements--surely you know! Or who stretched
the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone
when the morning stars sang together and all the heavenly beings
shouted for joy?
104:1-9, 24, 35c
104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, you are very
great. You are clothed with honor and majesty,
wrapped in light as with a garment. You stretch out the heavens
like a tent,
you set the beams of your chambers on the waters, you make the
clouds your chariot, you ride on the wings of the wind,
you make the winds your messengers, fire and flame your ministers.
You set the earth on its foundations, so that it shall never be
You cover it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood
above the mountains.
At your rebuke they flee; at the sound of your thunder they take
They rose up to the mountains, ran down to the valleys to the
place that you appointed for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not
again cover the earth.
O LORD, how manifold are your works! In wisdom you have made them
all; the earth is full of your creatures.
Praise the LORD!
5:1 Every high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge
of things pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts and
sacrifices for sins.
He is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he
himself is subject to weakness;
and because of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as
well as for those of the people.
And one does not presume to take this honor, but takes it only
when called by God, just as Aaron was.
So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a high priest,
but was appointed by the one who said to him, "You are my
Son, today I have begotten you";
as he says also in another place, "You are a priest forever,
according to the order of Melchizedek."
In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and
supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the one who was able
to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent
Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he
and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal
salvation for all who obey him,
having been designated by God a high priest according to the order
10:35 James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and
said to him, "Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we
ask of you."
And he said to them, "What is it you want me to do for
And they said to him, "Grant us to sit, one at your right
hand and one at your left, in your glory."
But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking.
Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with
the baptism that I am baptized with?"
They replied, "We are able." Then Jesus said to them,
"The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism
with which I am baptized, you will be baptized;
but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant,
but it is for those for whom it has been prepared."
When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and
So Jesus called them and said to them, "You know that among
the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it
over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them.
But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great
among you must be your servant,
and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all.
For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give
his life a ransom for many."
