The Daily Lectionary for TUESDAY, April 28, 2020


The Daily Lectionary
TUESDAY, April 28, 2020
Psalm 134; Proverbs 8:32—9:6; 1 Peter 2:1-3
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Praise God day and night
1  Praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord
     who minister by night in the house of the Lord.
2  Lift up your hands in the sanctuary
     and praise the Lord.

3  May the Lord bless you from Zion,
     he who is the Maker of heaven and earth.

Wisdom serves a meal
8:32 “Now then, my children, listen to me;
     blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Listen to my instruction and be wise;
     do not disregard it.
34 Blessed are those who listen to me,
     watching daily at my doors,
     waiting at my doorway.
35 For those who find me find life
     and receive favor from the Lord.
36 But those who fail to find me harm themselves;
     all who hate me love death.”

9:1 Wisdom has built her house;
     she has set up its seven pillars.
2  She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine;
     she has also set her table.
3  She has sent out her servants, and she calls
     from the highest point of the city,
4    “Let all who are simple come to my house!”
   To those who have no sense she says,
5    “Come, eat my food
     and drink the wine I have mixed.
Leave your simple ways and you will live;
     walk in the way of insight.”

Long for the pure spiritual milk
2:1 Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
