The Daily Lectionary
SATURDAY, June 6, 2020
Psalm 8; Job 38:22-38; John 14:15-17
(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
22 “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow
     or seen the storehouses of the hail,
23 which I reserve for times of trouble,
     for days of war and battle?
24 What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed,
     or the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth?
25 Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain,
     and a path for the thunderstorm,
26 to water a land where no one lives,
     an uninhabited desert,
27 to satisfy a desolate wasteland
     and make it sprout with grass?
28 Does the rain have a father?
     Who fathers the drops of dew?
29 From whose womb comes the ice?
     Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens
30 when the waters become hard as stone,
     when the surface of the deep is frozen?

31 “Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades?
     Can you loosen Orion’s belt?
32 Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons
     or lead out the Bear with its cubs?
33 Do you know the laws of the heavens?
     Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?

34 “Can you raise your voice to the clouds
     and cover yourself with a flood of water?
35 Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?
     Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?
36 Who gives the ibis wisdom
     or gives the rooster understanding?
37 Who has the wisdom to count the clouds?
     Who can tip over the water jars of the heavens
38 when the dust becomes hard
     and the clods of earth stick together?

Father Son Spirit
14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
