Jeremiah’s Life Threatened
18    It   was   the   Lord   who   made   it   known   to   me,   and   I
knew;   then   you   showed   me   their   evil   deeds. 19    But   I
was   like   a   gentle   lambled   to   the   slaughter.   And   I   did
not    know    it    was    against    me    that    they    devised
schemes,    saying,    ‘Let    us    destroy    the    tree    with    its
fruit,let   us   cut   him   off   from   the   land   of   the   living,so
that   his   name   will   no   longer   be   remembered!’ 20    But
you,   O   Lord   of   hosts,   who   judge   righteously,   who   try
the   heart   and   the   mind,   let   me   see   your   retribution upon them, for to you I have committed my cause. 2nd Reading:                                 James 3:13-4:3, 7-8a
Two Kinds of Wisdom
13    Who   is   wise   and   understanding   among   you?   Show
by    your    good    life    that    your    works    are    done    with
gentleness   born   of   wisdom. 14 But   if   you   have   bitter
envy   and   selfish   ambition   in   your   hearts,   do   not   be
boastful   and   false   to   the   truth. 15 Such   wisdom   does
not     come     down     from     above,     but     is     earthly,
unspiritual,   devilish. 16 For   where   there   is   envy   and
selfish    ambition,    there    will    also    be    disorder    and
wickedness   of   every   kind. 17 But   the   wisdom   from
above   is   first   pure,   then   peaceable,   gentle,   willing   to
yield,   full   of   mercy   and   good   fruits,   without   a   trace
of     partiality     or     hypocrisy. 18 And     a     harvest     of
righteousness   is   sown   in   peace   for *    those   who   make
peace.
Friendship with the World
4 Those   conflicts   and   disputes   among   you,   where   do
they    come    from?    Do    they    not    come    from    your
cravings    that    are    at    war    within    you? 2 You    want
something   and   do   not   have   it;   so   you   commit   murder.
And   you   covet *    something   and   cannot   obtain   it;   so
you    engage    in    disputes    and    conflicts.   You    do    not
have,   because   you   do   not   ask. 3 You   ask   and   do   not
receive,   because   you   ask   wrongly,   in   order   to   spend
what   you   get   on   your   pleasures. 7 Submit   yourselves
therefore   to   God.   Resist   the   devil,   and   he   will   flee
from   you. 8a Draw   near   to   God,   and   he   will   draw   near
to you.
Gospel:                                                     Mark 9:30-37
Jesus Again Foretells His Death and
Resurrection
30 They    went    on    from    there    and    passed    through
Galilee.   He   did   not   want   anyone   to   know   it; 31 for   he
was    teaching    his    disciples,    saying    to    them,    ‘The
Son   of   Man   is   to   be   betrayed   into   human   hands,   and
they   will   kill   him,   and   three   days   after   being   killed,
he   will   rise   again.’ 32 But   they   did   not   understand
what he was saying and were afraid to ask him.
Who Is the Greatest?
33 Then   they   came   to   Capernaum;   and   when   he   was
in    the    house    he    asked    them,    ‘What    were    you
arguing   about   on   the   way?’ 34 But   they   were   silent,
for   on   the   way   they   had   argued   with   one   another
about   who   was   the   greatest. 35 He   sat   down,   called
the   twelve,   and   said   to   them,   ‘Whoever   wants   to   be
first   must   be   last   of   all   and   servant   of   all.’ 36 Then   he
took   a   little   child   and   put   it   among   them;   and   taking
it    in    his    arms,    he    said    to    them, 37 ‘Whoever
welcomes   one   such   child   in   my   name   welcomes
me,   and   whoever   welcomes   me   welcomes   not   me
but the one who sent me.’

1st reading:         Jeremiah 11:18-20

Jeremiah’s Life Threatened

18 It was the LORD who made it known

to me, and I knew; then you showed me

their evil deeds. 19 But I was like a

gentle lamb

led to the slaughter. And I did not know

it was against me that they devised

schemes, saying, ‘Let us destroy the tree

with its fruit,

let us cut him off from the land of the

living,

so that his name will no longer be

remembered!’ 20 But you, O LORD of

hosts, who judge righteously, who try the

heart and the mind, let me see your

retribution upon them, for to you I have

committed my cause.

2nd Reading:       James 3:13-4:3, 7-8a Two Kinds of Wisdom 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not be boastful and false to the truth. 15 Such wisdom does not come down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. 16 For where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will also be disorder and wickedness of every kind. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace. Friendship with the World 4 Those conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not come from your cravings that are at war within you? 2 You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conflicts. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, in order to spend what you get on your pleasures. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8aDraw near to God, and he will draw near to you.

Psalm 54
To the leader: with stringed instruments.
A Maskil of David, when the Ziphites
went and told Saul, ‘David is in hiding
among us.’
1 Save me, O God, by your name, and
vindicate me by your might. 2 Hear my
prayer, O God; give ear to the words of
my mouth. 3 For the insolent have risen
against me, the ruthless seek my life;
they do not set God before them. Selah
4 But surely, God is my helper; the Lord
is the upholder of my life. 5 He will
repay my enemies for their evil. In your
faithfulness, put an end to them. 6 With a
freewill-offering I will sacrifice to you; I
will give thanks to your name, O LORD,
for it is good.
7 For he has delivered me from every
trouble, and my eye has looked in
triumph on my enemies.
