    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 2:1-4, 10-12

    When the time of David’s death drew near,
    he gave these instructions to his son Solomon:
    “I am going the way of all flesh.
    Take courage and be a man.
    Keep the mandate of the LORD, your God, following his ways
    and observing his statutes, commands, ordinances, and decrees
    as they are written in the law of Moses,
    that you may succeed in whatever you do,
    wherever you turn, and the LORD may fulfill
    the promise he made on my behalf when he said,
    ‘If your sons so conduct themselves
    that they remain faithful to me with their whole heart
    and with their whole soul,
    you shall always have someone of your line
    on the throne of Israel.’”

    David rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David.
    The length of David’s reign over Israel was forty years:
    he reigned seven years in Hebron
    and thirty-three years in Jerusalem.

    Solomon was seated on the throne of his father David,
    with his sovereignty firmly established.


    1 Chr 29:10, 11ab, 11d-12a, 12bcd

    R. (12b) Lord, you are exalted over all.
    “Blessed may you be, O LORD,
    God of Israel our father,
    from eternity to eternity.”
    R. Lord, you are exalted over all.
    “Yours, O LORD, are grandeur and power,
    majesty, splendor, and glory.”
    R. Lord, you are exalted over all.
    “LORD, you are exalted over all.
    Yours, O LORD, is the sovereignty;
    you are exalted as head over all.
    Riches and honor are from you.”
    R. Lord, you are exalted over all.
    “In your hand are power and might;
    it is yours to give grandeur and strength to all.”
    R. Lord, you are exalted over all.


    mk 6:7-13

    Jesus summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two
    and gave them authority over unclean spirits.
    He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick
    –no food, no sack, no money in their belts.
    They were, however, to wear sandals but not a second tunic.
    He said to them,
    “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave from there.
    Whatever place does not welcome you or listen to you,
    leave there and shake the dust off your feet
    in testimony against them.”
    So they went off and preached repentance.
    The Twelve drove out many demons,
    and they anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.
