1 Kings 3: 5-14

5At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, ‘Ask what I should give you.’ 6And Solomon said, ‘You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant my father David, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart towards you; and you have kept for him this great and steadfast love, and have given him a son to sit on his throne today. 7And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David, although I am only a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. 8And your servant is in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a great people, so numerous they cannot be numbered or counted. 9Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, able to discern between good and evil; for who can govern this your great people?’

10 It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. 11God said to him, ‘Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches, or for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, 12I now do according to your word. Indeed I give you a wise and discerning mind; no one like you has been before you and no one like you shall arise after you. 13I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honour all your life; no other king shall compare with you. 14If you will walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your life.’

John 8: 12-19

Jesus the Light of the World

12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’ 13Then the Pharisees said to him, ‘You are testifying on your own behalf; your testimony is not valid.’ 14Jesus answered, ‘Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid because I know where I have come from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. 15You judge by human standards;* I judge no one. 16Yet even if I do judge, my judgement is valid; for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father* who sent me. 17In your law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is valid. 18I testify on my own behalf, and the Father who sent me testifies on my behalf.’ 19Then they said to him, ‘Where is your Father?’ Jesus answered, ‘You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.’

Psalm 20

1  May the Lord hear you in the day of trouble, 
   the name of the God of Jacob defend you;
2  Send you help from his sanctuary 
   and strengthen you out of Zion;
3  Remember all your offerings 
   and accept your burnt sacrifice;
4  Grant you your heart’s desire 
   and fulfil all your mind.
5  May we rejoice in your salvation
      and triumph in the name of our God; 
   may the Lord perform all your petitions.
6  Now I know that the Lord will save his anointed; 
   he will answer him from his holy heaven,
      with the mighty strength of his right hand.
7  Some put their trust in chariots and some in horses, 
   but we will call only on the name of the Lord our God.
8  They are brought down and fallen, 
   but we are risen and stand upright.
9  O Lord, save the king 
   and answer us when we call upon you.

Psalm 148

1  Alleluia.
      Praise the Lord from the heavens; 
   praise him in the heights.
2  Praise him, all you his angels; 
   praise him, all his host.
3  Praise him, sun and moon; 
   praise him, all you stars of light.
4  Praise him, heaven of heavens, 
   and you waters above the heavens.
5  Let them praise the name of the Lord, 
   for he commanded and they were created.
6  He made them fast for ever and ever; 
   he gave them a law which shall not pass away.
7  Praise the Lord from the earth, 
   you sea monsters and all deeps;
8  Fire and hail, snow and mist, 
   tempestuous wind, fulfilling his word;
9  Mountains and all hills, 
   fruit trees and all cedars;
10  Wild beasts and all cattle, 
   creeping things and birds on the wing;
11  Kings of the earth and all peoples, 
   princes and all rulers of the world;
12  Young men and women,
      old and young together; 
   let them praise the name of the Lord.
13  For his name only is exalted, 
   his splendour above earth and heaven.
14  He has raised up the horn of his people
      and praise for all his faithful servants, 
   the children of Israel, a people who are near him.
      Alleluia.

13  Sing praise to the Lord, O Jerusalem; 
   praise your God, O Zion;
14  For he has strengthened the bars of your gates 
   and has blest your children within you.
15  He has established peace in your borders 
   and satisfies you with the finest wheat.
16  He sends forth his command to the earth 
   and his word runs very swiftly.
17  He gives snow like wool 
   and scatters the hoarfrost like ashes.
18  He casts down his hailstones like morsels of bread; 
   who can endure his frost?
19  He sends forth his word and melts them; 
   he blows with his wind and the waters flow.
20  He declares his word to Jacob, 
   his statutes and judgements to Israel.
21  He has not dealt so with any other nation; 
   they do not know his laws.
      Alleluia.
