The Daily Lectionary
FRIDAY, June 5, 2020
Psalm 8; Job 38:12-21; 2 Timothy 1:12b-14
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

How exalted is your name
1  Lord, our Lord,
     how majestic is your name in all the earth!

   You have set your glory
     in the heavens.
2  Through the praise of children and infants
     you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
     to silence the foe and the avenger.
3  When I consider your heavens,
     the work of your fingers,
   the moon and the stars,
     which you have set in place,
4  what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
     human beings that you care for them?

5  You have made them a little lower than the angels
     and crowned them with glory and honor.
6  You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
     you put everything under their feet:
7  all flocks and herds,
     and the animals of the wild,
8  the birds in the sky,
     and the fish in the sea,
     all that swim the paths of the seas.

9  Lord, our Lord,
     how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Creation story from Job
12 “Have you ever given orders to the morning,
     or shown the dawn its place,
13 that it might take the earth by the edges
     and shake the wicked out of it?
14 The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;
     its features stand out like those of a garment.
15 The wicked are denied their light,
     and their upraised arm is broken.

16 “Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea
     or walked in the recesses of the deep?
17 Have the gates of death been shown to you?
     Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness?
18 Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth?
     Tell me, if you know all this.

19 “What is the way to the abode of light?
     And where does darkness reside?
20 Can you take them to their places?
     Do you know the paths to their dwellings?
21 Surely you know, for you were already born!
     You have lived so many years!

The treasure of the triune God
1:12b Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.

13 What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. 14 Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
