The LORD said to you: It is youwho shall be shepherd of my people Israel, you who shall beruler over Israel."5:3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron; andKing David made a covenant with them at Hebron before theLORD, and they anointed David king over Israel.

His holy mountain,48:2 beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, MountZion, in the far north, the city of the great King.48:3 Within its citadels God has shown himself a sure defense.48:4 Then the kings assembled, they came on together.48:5 As soon as they saw it, they were astounded; they were inpanic, they took to flight;48:6 trembling took hold of them there, pains as of a womanin labor,48:7 as when an east wind shatters the ships of Tarshish.48:8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of theLORD of hosts, in the city of our God, which Godestablishes forever. Selah48:9 We ponder your steadfast love, O God, in the midst ofyour temple.48:10 Your name, O God, like your praise, reaches to theends of the earth. Your right hand is filled with victory.48:11 Let Mount Zion be glad, let the towns of Judah rejoicebecause of your judgments.48:12 Walk about Zion, go all around it, count its towers,
48:13 consider well its ramparts; go through its citadels, thatyou may tell the next generation48:14 that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will beour guide forever.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end.

But I refrain from it, so that no one maythink better of me than what is seen in me or heard from me,12:7 even considering the exceptional character of therevelations. Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, athorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan totorment me, to keep me from being too elated.12:8 Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it wouldleave me,12:9 but he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, forpower is made perfect in weakness." So, I will boast all themore gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ maydwell in me.12:10 Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults,
hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ;for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.The GospelThe Lord be with you: And also with you.The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according toMark 6: 1-13.Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.6:1 He left that place and came to his hometown, and hisdisciples followed him.6:2 On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, andmany who heard him were astounded.

Then he went aboutamong the villages teaching.6:7 He called the twelve and began to send them out two bytwo, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits.6:8 He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except astaff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts;6:9 but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics.6:10 He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay thereuntil you leave the place.
