(1 Kings 3.5-15)

A reading from the First Book of Kings:
At Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.”

And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, 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 this day. And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in. And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”

It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. And God said to him,
“Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honour, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days. And if you will walk in my ways, keeping my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen your days.”

And Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. Then he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered up burnt offerings and peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.

This is the word of the Lord.

All Thanks be to God.

(1 Corinthians 15.1-11)

A reading from the First letter to the Corinthians:
Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace towards me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

This is the word of the Lord.

All Thanks be to God.

(St Luke 18.9-14)

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St Luke:

Glory to you, O Lord
Jesus told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt:

“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus:
‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’

But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying,

‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ

(Lukas 18.9-14)

Luistert naar het Evangelie van onze Heer Jezus Christus volgens Lukas

Ere zij U, o Heer

Jesus sprak ook met het oog op sommigen die van zichzelf overtuigd waren dat zij rechtvaardig waren / en alle anderen minachtten, deze gelijkenis: 

Twee mensen gingen naar de tempel om te bidden.
De één was een Farizeeër en de ander een tollenaar. 
De Farizeeër stond daar en bad dit bij zichzelf:
“O God, ik dank U dat ik niet ben zoals de andere mensen: rovers, onrechtvaardigen, overspelers of ook als deze tollenaar.  Ik vast tweemaal per week. Ik geef tienden van alles wat ik bezit.”

En de tollenaar bleef op een afstand staan / en wilde ook zelfs zijn ogen niet naar de hemel opheffen, maar sloeg op zijn borst / en zei: “O God, wees mij, de zondaar, genadig.” 

Ik zeg u: Deze man ging gerechtvaardigd terug naar zijn huis, in tegenstelling tot die andere. Want ieder die zichzelf verhoogt, zal vernederd worden / en wie zichzelf vernedert, zal verhoogd worden.

Dit is het Evangelie van de Heer

Lof zij U, o Christus
