    Acts 18:9-18

    9And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent; 10for I am with you, and no man shall attack you to harm you; for I have many people in this city." 11And he stayed a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. 12But when Gallio was proconsul of Acha'ia, the Jews made a united attack upon Paul and brought him before the tribunal, 13saying, "This man is persuading men to worship God contrary to the law." 14But when Paul was about to open his mouth, Gallio said to the Jews, "If it were a matter of wrongdoing or vicious crime, I should have reason to bear with you, O Jews; 15but since it is a matter of questions about words and names and your own law, see to it yourselves; I refuse to be a judge of these things." 16And he drove them from the tribunal. 17And they all seized Sos'thenes, the ruler of the synagogue, and beat him in front of the tribunal. But Gallio paid no attention to this. 18After this Paul stayed many days longer, and then took leave of the brethren and sailed for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aq'uila. At Cen'chre-ae he cut his hair, for he had a vow.


    Psalms 47:2-7

    1Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! 2For the LORD, the Most High, is terrible, a great king over all the earth. 3He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet. 4He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. [Selah] 5God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. 6Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!


    John 16:20-23

    20Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. 21When a woman is in travail she has sorrow, because her hour has come; but when she is delivered of the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a child is born into the world. 22So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. 23In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name.


    Easter Time.


    Acts 16:11-15

    We set sail from Troas, making a straight run for Samothrace,
    and on the next day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi,
    a leading city in that district of Macedonia and a Roman colony.
    We spent some time in that city.
    On the sabbath we went outside the city gate along the river
    where we thought there would be a place of prayer.
    We sat and spoke with the women who had gathered there.
    One of them, a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth,
    from the city of Thyatira, a worshiper of God, listened,
    and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention
    to what Paul was saying.
    After she and her household had been baptized,
    she offered us an invitation,
    “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,
    come and stay at my home,” and she prevailed on us.


    PS 149:1b-2, 3-4, 5-6a and 9b

    R. (see 4a) The Lord takes delight in his people.
    R. Alleluia.
    Sing to the LORD a new song
    of praise in the assembly of the faithful.
    Let Israel be glad in their maker,
    let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    R. Alleluia.
    Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
    let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
    For the LORD loves his people,
    and he adorns the lowly with victory.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    R. Alleluia.
    Let the faithful exult in glory;
    let them sing for joy upon their couches.
    Let the high praises of God be in their throats.
    This is the glory of all his faithful. Alleluia.
    R. The Lord takes delight in his people.
    R. Alleluia.


    Jn 15:26—16:4a

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    “When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father,
    the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father,
    he will testify to me.
    And you also testify,
    because you have been with me from the beginning.

    “I have told you this so that you may not fall away.
    They will expel you from the synagogues;
    in fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you
    will think he is offering worship to God.
    They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me.
    I have told you this so that when their hour comes
    you may remember that I told you.”
