    Hebrews 12:1-4

    1Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,2looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.3Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.4In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.


    Psalms 22:26-28, 30-32

    25From thee comes my praise in the great congregation;my vows I will pay before those who fear him. 26The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied;those who seek him shall praise the LORD! May your hearts live for ever! 27All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD;and all the families of the nations shall worship before him. 29Yea, to him shall all the proud of the earth bow down;before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive. 30Posterity shall serve him;men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation, 31and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, that he has wrought it.


    Mark 5:21-43

    21And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him;and he was beside the sea. 22Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Ja'irus by name;and seeing him, he fell at his feet, 23and besought him, saying, "My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well, and live." 24And he went with him. And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25And there was a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27She had heard the reports about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28For she said, "If I touch even his garments, I shall be made well." 29And immediately the hemorrhage ceased;and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone forth from him, immediately turned about in the crowd, and said, "Who touched my garments?" 31And his disciples said to him, "You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, `Who touched me?'" 32And he looked around to see who had done it. 33But the woman, knowing what had been done to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34And he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well;go in peace, and be healed of your disease." 35While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler's house some who said, "Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?" 36But ignoring what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, "Do not fear, only believe." 37And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38When they came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, he saw a tumult, and people weeping and wailing loudly. 39And when he had entered, he said to them, "Why do you make a tumult and weep? The child is not dead but sleeping." 40And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside, and took the child's father and mother and those who were with him, and went in where the child was. 41Taking her by the hand he said to her, "Tal'itha cu'mi";which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise." 42And immediately the girl got up and walked (she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.

    1 Kgs 3:4-13

    Solomon went to Gibeon to sacrifice there,
    because that was the most renowned high place.
    Upon its altar Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings.
    In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream at night.
    God said, "Ask something of me and I will give it to you."
    Solomon answered:
    "You have shown great favor to your servant, my father David,
    because he behaved faithfully toward you,
    with justice and an upright heart;
    and you have continued this great favor toward him, even today,
    seating a son of his on his throne.
    O LORD, my God, you have made me, your servant,
    king to succeed my father David;
    but I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act.
    I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen,
    a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted.
    Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart
    to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong.
    For who is able to govern this vast people of yours?"

    The LORD was pleased that Solomon made this request.
    So God said to him: "Because you have asked for this?
    not for a long life for yourself,
    nor for riches, nor for the life of your enemies,
    but for understanding so that you may know what is right?
    I do as you requested.
    I give you a heart so wise and understanding
    that there has never been anyone like you up to now,
    and after you there will come no one to equal you.
    In addition, I give you what you have not asked for,
    such riches and glory that among kings there is not your like."


    Ps 119:9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

    R. (12b) Lord, teach me your statutes.
    How shall a young man be faultless in his way?
    By keeping to your words.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    With all my heart I seek you;
    let me not stray from your commands.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Within my heart I treasure your promise,
    that I may not sin against you.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    Blessed are you, O LORD;
    teach me your statutes.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    With my lips I declare
    all the ordinances of your mouth.
    R. Lord, teach me your statutes.
    In the way of your decrees I rejoice,
    as much as in all riches.
    R.Lord, teach me your statutes.


    Mk 6:30-34

    The Apostles gathered together with Jesus
    and reported all they had done and taught.
    He said to them,
    "Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while."
    People were coming and going in great numbers,
    and they had no opportunity even to eat.
    So they went off in the boat by themselves to a deserted place.
    People saw them leaving and many came to know about it.
    They hastened there on foot from all the towns
    and arrived at the place before them.

    When Jesus disembarked and saw the vast crowd,
    his heart was moved with pity for them,
    for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
    and he began to teach them many things.
