    Hebrews 10:32-39

    32But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings,33sometimes being publicly exposed to abuse and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated.34For you had compassion on the prisoners, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one.35Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.36For you have need of endurance, so that you may do the will of God and receive what is promised.37"For yet a little while, and the coming one shall come and shall not tarry;38but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him."39But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and keep their souls.


    Psalms 37:3-6, 23-24, 39-40

    3Trust in the LORD, and do good;so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. 4Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the LORD;trust in him, and he will act. 6He will bring forth your vindication as the light, and your right as the noonday. 23The steps of a man are from the LORD, and he establishes him in whose way he delights;24though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD is the stay of his hand. 39The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;he is their refuge in the time of trouble. 40The LORD helps them and delivers them;he delivers them from the wicked, and saves them, because they take refuge in him.


    Mark 4:26-34

    26And he said, "The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed upon the ground, 27and should sleep and rise night and day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he knows not how. 28The earth produces of itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. 29But when the grain is ripe, at once he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come." 30And he said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? 31It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth;32yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade." 33With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it;34he did not speak to them without a parable, but privately to his own disciples he explained everything.

    2 sm 7:18-19, 24-29

    After Nathan had spoken to King David,
    the king went in and sat before the LORD and said,
    “Who am I, Lord GOD, and who are the members of my house,
    that you have brought me to this point?
    Yet even this you see as too little, Lord GOD;
    you have also spoken of the house of your servant
    for a long time to come:
    this too you have shown to man, Lord GOD!

    “You have established for yourself your people Israel as yours forever,
    and you, LORD, have become their God.
    And now, LORD God, confirm for all time the prophecy you have made
    concerning your servant and his house,
    and do as you have promised.
    Your name will be forever great, when men say,
    ‘The LORD of hosts is God of Israel,’
    and the house of your servant David stands firm before you.
    It is you, LORD of hosts, God of Israel,
    who said in a revelation to your servant,
    ‘I will build a house for you.’
    Therefore your servant now finds the courage to make this prayer to you.
    And now, Lord GOD, you are God and your words are truth;
    you have made this generous promise to your servant.
    Do, then, bless the house of your servant
    that it may be before you forever;
    for you, Lord GOD, have promised,
    and by your blessing the house of your servant
    shall be blessed forever.”


    ps 132:1-2, 3-5, 11, 12, 13-14

    R. (Lk 1:32b) The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.
    LORD, remember David
    and all his anxious care;
    How he swore an oath to the LORD,
    vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob.
    R. The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.
    “I will not enter the house where I live,
    nor lie on the couch where I sleep;
    I will give my eyes no sleep,
    my eyelids no rest,
    Till I find a home for the LORD,
    a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”
    R. The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.
    The LORD swore an oath to David
    a firm promise from which he will not withdraw:
    “Your own offspring
    I will set upon your throne.”
    R. The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.
    “If your sons keep my covenant,
    and the decrees which I shall teach them,
    Their sons, too, forever
    shall sit upon your throne.”
    R. The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.
    For the LORD has chosen Zion,
    he prefers her for his dwelling:
    “Zion is my resting place forever;
    in her I will dwell, for I prefer her.”
    R. The Lord God will give him the throne of David, his father.


    mk 4:21-25

    Jesus said to his disciples,
    “Is a lamp brought in to be placed under a bushel basket
    or under a bed,
    and not to be placed on a lampstand?
    For there is nothing hidden except to be made visible;
    nothing is secret except to come to light.
    Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.”
    He also told them, “Take care what you hear.
    The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you,
    and still more will be given to you.
    To the one who has, more will be given;
    from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.”
