    Acts 28:11-16, 30-31

    11After three months we set sail in a ship which had wintered in the island, a ship of Alexandria, with the Twin Brothers as figurehead. 12Putting in at Syracuse, we stayed there for three days. 13And from there we made a circuit and arrived at Rhe'gium;and after one day a south wind sprang up, and on the second day we came to Pute'oli. 14There we found brethren, and were invited to stay with them for seven days. And so we came to Rome. 15And the brethren there, when they heard of us, came as far as the Forum of Ap'pius and Three Taverns to meet us. On seeing them Paul thanked God and took courage. 16And when we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier that guarded him. 30And he lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, 31preaching the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ quite openly and unhindered.


    Psalms 98:1-6

    1O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory. 2The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations. 3He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God. 4Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;break forth into joyous song and sing praises! 5Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! 6With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!


    Matthew 14:22-33

    22Then he made the disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, 24but the boat by this time was many furlongs distant from the land, beaten by the waves;for the wind was against them. 25And in the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. 26But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, "It is a ghost!" And they cried out for fear. 27But immediately he spoke to them, saying, "Take heart, it is I;have no fear." 28And Peter answered him, "Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water." 29He said, "Come." So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus;30but when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me." 31Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, "O man of little faith, why did you doubt?" 32And when they got into the boat, the wind ceased. 33And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."

    Rv 10:8-11

    I, John, heard a voice from heaven speak to me.
    Then the voice spoke to me and said:
    "Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel
    who is standing on the sea and on the land."
    So I went up to the angel and told him to give me the small scroll.
    He said to me, "Take and swallow it.
    It will turn your stomach sour,
    but in your mouth it will taste as sweet as honey."
    I took the small scroll from the angel's hand and swallowed it.
    In my mouth it was like sweet honey,
    but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour.
    Then someone said to me, "You must prophesy again
    about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings."


    Ps 119:14, 24, 72, 103, 111, 131

    R. (103a) How sweet to my taste is your promise!
    In the way of your decrees I rejoice,
    as much as in all riches.
    R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
    Yes, your decrees are my delight;
    they are my counselors.
    R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
    The law of your mouth is to me more precious
    than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
    R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
    How sweet to my palate are your promises,
    sweeter than honey to my mouth!
    R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
    Your decrees are my inheritance forever;
    the joy of my heart they are.
    R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!
    I gasp with open mouth
    in my yearning for your commands.
    R. How sweet to my taste is your promise!


    Lk 19:45-48

    Jesus entered the temple area and proceeded to drive out
    those who were selling things, saying to them,
    "It is written, My house shall be a house of prayer,
    but you have made it a den of thieves.
    And every day he was teaching in the temple area.
    The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people, meanwhile,
    were seeking to put him to death,
    but they could find no way to accomplish their purpose
    because all the people were hanging on his words.
