SATURDAY, May 16, 2020
Psalm 66:8-20; Genesis 8:13-19; John 14:27-29
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Be joyful in God all you lands
8  Praise our God, all peoples,
     let the sound of his praise be heard;
9  he has preserved our lives
     and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, God, tested us;
     you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison
     and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;
     we went through fire and water,
     but you brought us to a place of abundance.

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
     and fulfill my vows to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
     when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
     and an offering of rams;
     I will offer bulls and goats.

16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
     let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
     his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
     the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
     and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
     who has not rejected my prayer
     or withheld his love from me!

Genesis 8:13-19
The flood waters subside
8:13 By the first day of the first month of Noah’s six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry. 14 By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.

15 Then God said to Noah, 16 “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. 17 Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you—the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground—so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number on it.”

18 So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. 19 All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds—everything that moves on land—came out of the ark, one kind after another.

John 14:27-29
Peace I leave with you
14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.
