The Daily Lectionary
FRIDAY, May 29, 2020
Psalm 33:12-22; Exodus 19:16-25; Romans 8:14-17
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Our help and our shield
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
     the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down
     and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches
     all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all,
     who considers everything they do.

16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
     no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
     despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,
     on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death
     and keep them alive in famine.

20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
     he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
     for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
     even as we put our hope in you.

Moses and Aaron meet the Lord
19:16 On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. 17 Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. 18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently. 19 As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.

20 The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain. So Moses went up 21 and the Lord said to him, “Go down and warn the people so they do not force their way through to see the Lord and many of them perish. 22 Even the priests, who approach the Lord, must consecrate themselves, or the Lord will break out against them.”

23 Moses said to the Lord, “The people cannot come up Mount Sinai, because you yourself warned us, ‘Put limits around the mountain and set it apart as holy.’”

24 The Lord replied, “Go down and bring Aaron up with you. But the priests and the people must not force their way through to come up to the Lord, or he will break out against them.”

25 So Moses went down to the people and told them.

Led by the Spirit of God
8:14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
