Psalm 114

1  When Israel came out of Egypt, 
   the house of Jacob from a people of a strange tongue,
2  Judah became his sanctuary, 
   Israel his dominion.
3  The sea saw that, and fled; 
   Jordan was driven back.
4  The mountains skipped like rams, 
   the little hills like young sheep.
5  What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? 
   O Jordan, that you were driven back?
6  You mountains, that you skipped like rams, 
   you little hills like young sheep?
7  Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, 
   at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8  Who turns the hard rock into a pool of water, 
   the flint-stone into a springing well.

Psalm 115

1  Not to us, Lord, not to us,
      but to your name give the glory, 
   for the sake of your loving mercy and truth.
2  Why should the nations say, 
   ‘Where is now their God?’
3  As for our God, he is in heaven; 
   he does whatever he pleases.
4  Their idols are silver and gold, 
   the work of human hands.
5  They have mouths, but cannot speak; 
   eyes have they, but cannot see;
6  They have ears, but cannot hear; 
   noses have they, but cannot smell;
7  They have hands, but cannot feel;
      feet have they, but cannot walk; 
   not a whisper do they make from their throats.
8  Those who make them shall become like them 
   and so will all who put their trust in them.
9  But you, Israel, put your trust in the Lord; 
   he is their help and their shield.
10  House of Aaron, trust in the Lord; 
   he is their help and their shield.
11  You that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; 
   he is their help and their shield.
12  The Lord has been mindful of us and he will bless us; 
   may he bless the house of Israel;
      may he bless the house of Aaron;
13  May he bless those who fear the Lord, 
   both small and great together.
14  May the Lord increase you more and more, 
   you and your children after you.
15  May you be blest by the Lord, 
   the maker of heaven and earth.
16  The heavens are the heavens of the Lord, 
   but the earth he has entrusted to his children.
17  The dead do not praise the Lord, 
   nor those gone down into silence;
18  But we will bless the Lord, 
   from this time forth for evermore.
      Alleluia.

Joel 1: 14 - 2: 2,[3-11]


14 Sanctify a fast,
   call a solemn assembly.
Gather the elders
   and all the inhabitants of the land
to the house of the Lord your God,
   and cry out to the Lord.


15 Alas for the day!
For the day of the Lord is near,
   and as destruction from the Almighty* it comes.
16 Is not the food cut off
   before our eyes,
joy and gladness
   from the house of our God?


17 The seed shrivels under the clods,*
   the storehouses are desolate;
the granaries are ruined
   because the grain has failed.
18 How the animals groan!
   The herds of cattle wander about
because there is no pasture for them;
   even the flocks of sheep are dazed.*


19 To you, O Lord, I cry.
For fire has devoured
   the pastures of the wilderness,
and flames have burned
   all the trees of the field.
20 Even the wild animals cry to you
   because the watercourses are dried up,
and fire has devoured
   the pastures of the wilderness.

2Blow the trumpet in Zion;
   sound the alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
   for the day of the Lord is coming, it is near—
2 a day of darkness and gloom,
   a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness spread upon the mountains
   a great and powerful army comes;
their like has never been from of old,
   nor will be again after them
   in ages to come.

[
3 Fire devours in front of them,
   and behind them a flame burns.
Before them the land is like the garden of Eden,
   but after them a desolate wilderness,
   and nothing escapes them.


4 They have the appearance of horses,
   and like warhorses they charge.
5 As with the rumbling of chariots,
   they leap on the tops of the mountains,
like the crackling of a flame of fire
   devouring the stubble,
like a powerful army
   drawn up for battle.


6 Before them peoples are in anguish,
   all faces grow pale.*
7 Like warriors they charge,
   like soldiers they scale the wall.
Each keeps to its own course,
   they do not swerve from* their paths.
8 They do not jostle one another,
   each keeps to its own track;
they burst through the weapons
   and are not halted.
9 They leap upon the city,
   they run upon the walls;
they climb up into the houses,
   they enter through the windows like a thief.


10 The earth quakes before them,
   the heavens tremble.
The sun and the moon are darkened,
   and the stars withdraw their shining.
11 The Lord utters his voice
   at the head of his army;
how vast is his host!
   Numberless are those who obey his command.
Truly the day of the Lord is great;
   terrible indeed—who can endure it?

Revelation 19: 1-10

The Rejoicing in Heaven

19After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying,
‘Hallelujah!
Salvation and glory and power to our God,
2   for his judgements are true and just;
he has judged the great whore
   who corrupted the earth with her fornication,
and he has avenged on her the blood of his servants.’*
3Once more they said,
‘Hallelujah!
The smoke goes up from her for ever and ever.’
4And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying,
‘Amen. Hallelujah!’

5 And from the throne came a voice saying,
‘Praise our God,
   all you his servants,*
and all who fear him,
   small and great.’
6Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunder-peals, crying out,
‘Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God
   the Almighty reigns.
7 Let us rejoice and exult
   and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
   and his bride has made herself ready;
8 to her it has been granted to be clothed
   with fine linen, bright and pure’—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

9 And the angel said* to me, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ And he said to me, ‘These are true words of God.’ 10Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, ‘You must not do that! I am a fellow-servant* with you and your comrades* who hold the testimony of Jesus.* Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus* is the spirit of prophecy.’
