Psalm 102

1  O Lord, hear my prayer 
   and let my crying come before you.
2  Hide not your face from me 
   in the day of my distress.
3  Incline your ear to me; 
   when I call, make haste to answer me,
4  For my days are consumed in smoke 
   and my bones burn away as in a furnace.
5  My heart is smitten down and withered like grass, 
   so that I forget to eat my bread.
6  From the sound of my groaning 
   my bones cleave fast to my skin.
7  I am become like a vulture in the wilderness, 
   like an owl that haunts the ruins.
8  I keep watch and am become like a sparrow 
   solitary upon the housetop.
9  My enemies revile me all the day long, 
   and those who rage at me have sworn together against me.
10  I have eaten ashes for bread 
   and mingled my drink with weeping,
11  Because of your indignation and wrath, 
   for you have taken me up and cast me down.
12  My days fade away like a shadow, 
   and I am withered like grass.
13  But you, O Lord, shall endure for ever 
   and your name through all generations.
14  You will arise and have pity on Zion; 
   it is time to have mercy upon her;
      surely the time has come.
15  For your servants love her very stones 
   and feel compassion for her dust.
16  Then shall the nations fear your name, O Lord, 
   and all the kings of the earth your glory,
17  When the Lord has built up Zion 
   and shown himself in glory;
18  When he has turned to the prayer of the destitute 
   and has not despised their plea.
19  This shall be written for those that come after, 
   and a people yet unborn shall praise the Lord.
20  For he has looked down from his holy height; 
   from the heavens he beheld the earth,
21  That he might hear the sighings of the prisoner 
   and set free those condemned to die;
22  That the name of the Lord may be proclaimed in Zion 
   and his praises in Jerusalem,
23  When peoples are gathered together 
   and kingdoms also, to serve the Lord.
24  He has brought down my strength in my journey 
   and has shortened my days.
25  I pray, ‘O my God, do not take me in the midst of my days; 
   your years endure throughout all generations.
26  ‘In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, 
   and the heavens are the work of your hands;
27  ‘They shall perish, but you will endure; 
   they all shall wear out like a garment.
28  ‘You change them like clothing, and they shall be changed; 
   but you are the same, and your years will not fail.
29  ‘The children of your servants shall continue, 
   and their descendants shall be established in your sight.’

Jeremiah 22: 13-23


13 Woe to him who builds his house by unrighteousness,
   and his upper rooms by injustice;
who makes his neighbours work for nothing,
   and does not give them their wages;
14 who says, ‘I will build myself a spacious house
   with large upper rooms’,
and who cuts out windows for it,
   panelling it with cedar,
   and painting it with vermilion.
15 Are you a king
   because you compete in cedar?
Did not your father eat and drink
   and do justice and righteousness?
   Then it was well with him.
16 He judged the cause of the poor and needy;
   then it was well.
Is not this to know me?
   says the Lord.
17 But your eyes and heart
   are only on your dishonest gain,
for shedding innocent blood,
   and for practising oppression and violence.

18 Therefore thus says the Lord concerning King Jehoiakim son of Josiah of Judah:
They shall not lament for him, saying,
   ‘Alas, my brother!’ or ‘Alas, sister!’
They shall not lament for him, saying,
   ‘Alas, lord!’ or ‘Alas, his majesty!’
19 With the burial of a donkey he shall be buried—
   dragged off and thrown out beyond the gates of Jerusalem.


20 Go up to Lebanon, and cry out,
   and lift up your voice in Bashan;
cry out from Abarim,
   for all your lovers are crushed.
21 I spoke to you in your prosperity,
   but you said, ‘I will not listen.’
This has been your way from your youth,
   for you have not obeyed my voice.
22 The wind shall shepherd all your shepherds,
   and your lovers shall go into captivity;
then you will be ashamed and dismayed
   because of all your wickedness.
23 O inhabitant of Lebanon,
   nested among the cedars,
how you will groan* when pangs come upon you,
   pain as of a woman in labour!

John 6. 41-51

41 Then the Jews began to complain about him because he said, ‘I am the bread that came down from heaven.’ 42They were saying, ‘Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, “I have come down from heaven”?’ 43Jesus answered them, ‘Do not complain among yourselves. 44No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. 45It is written in the prophets, “And they shall all be taught by God.” Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. 46Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. 47Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life. 48I am the bread of life. 49Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. 51I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.’
