    Hebrews 13:15-17, 20-21

    15Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.16Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.17Obey your leaders and submit to them;for they are keeping watch over your souls, as men who will have to give account. Let them do this joyfully, and not sadly, for that would be of no advantage to you.20Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant,21equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in you that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ;to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.


    Psalms 23:1-6

    1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want;2he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters;3he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil;for thou art with me;thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies;thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.


    Mark 6:30-34

    30The apostles returned to Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. 31And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. 32And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves. 33Now many saw them going, and knew them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns, and got there ahead of them. 34As he went ashore he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd;and he began to teach them many things.

    1 Kgs 10:1-10

    The queen of Sheba, having heard of Solomon's fame,
    came to test him with subtle questions.
    She arrived in Jerusalem with a very numerous retinue,
    and with camels bearing spices,
    a large amount of gold, and precious stones.
    She came to Solomon and questioned him on every subject
    in which she was interested.
    King Solomon explained everything she asked about,
    and there remained nothing hidden from him
    that he could not explain to her.

    When the queen of Sheba witnessed Solomon's great wisdom,
    the palace he had built, the food at his table,
    the seating of his ministers, the attendance and garb of his waiters,
    his banquet service,
    and the burnt offerings he offered in the temple of the LORD,
    she was breathless.
    "The report I heard in my country
    about your deeds and your wisdom is true," she told the king.
    "Though I did not believe the report until I came and saw with my own eyes,
    I have discovered that they were not telling me the half.
    Your wisdom and prosperity surpass the report I heard.
    Blessed are your men, blessed these servants of yours,
    who stand before you always and listen to your wisdom.
    Blessed be the LORD, your God,
    whom it has pleased to place you on the throne of Israel.
    In his enduring love for Israel,
    the LORD has made you king to carry out judgment and justice."
    Then she gave the king one hundred and twenty gold talents,
    a very large quantity of spices, and precious stones.
    Never again did anyone bring such an abundance of spices
    as the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.


    Ps 37:5-6, 30-31, 39-40

    R. (30a) The mouth of the just murmurs wisdom.
    Commit to the LORD your way;
    trust in him, and he will act.
    He will make justice dawn for you like the light;
    bright as the noonday shall be your vindication.
    R. The mouth of the just murmurs wisdom.
    The mouth of the just man tells of wisdom
    and his tongue utters what is right.
    The law of his God is in his heart,
    and his steps do not falter.
    R. The mouth of the just murmurs wisdom.
    The salvation of the just is from the LORD;
    he is their refuge in time of distress.
    And the LORD helps them and delivers them;
    he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
    because they take refuge in him.
    R. The mouth of the just murmurs wisdom.


    Mk 7:14-23

    Jesus summoned the crowd again and said to them,
    "Hear me, all of you, and understand.
    Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person;
    but the things that come out from within are what defile."

    When he got home away from the crowd
    his disciples questioned him about the parable.
    He said to them,
    "Are even you likewise without understanding?
    Do you not realize that everything
    that goes into a person from outside cannot defile,
    since it enters not the heart but the stomach
    and passes out into the latrine?"
    (Thus he declared all foods clean.)
    "But what comes out of the man, that is what defiles him.
    From within the man, from his heart,
    come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder,
    adultery, greed, malice, deceit,
    licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly.
    All these evils come from within and they defile."
