The Daily Lectionary
SATURDAY, June 20, 2020
Psalm 69:7-10 [11-15] 16-18; Jeremiah 20:1-6; Luke 11:53—12:3
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Draw near to me
7  For I endure scorn for your sake,
     and shame covers my face.
8  I am a foreigner to my own family,
     a stranger to my own mother’s children;
9  for zeal for your house consumes me,
     and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
10 When I weep and fast,
     I must endure scorn;
[11 when I put on sackcloth,
     people make sport of me.
12 Those who sit at the gate mock me,
     and I am the song of the drunkards.

13 But I pray to you, Lord,
     in the time of your favor;
   in your great love, O God,
     answer me with your sure salvation.
14 Rescue me from the mire,
     do not let me sink;
   deliver me from those who hate me,
     from the deep waters.
15 Do not let the floodwaters engulf me
     or the depths swallow me up
     or the pit close its mouth over me.]

16 Answer me, Lord, out of the goodness of your love;
     in your great mercy turn to me.
17 Do not hide your face from your servant;
     answer me quickly, for I am in trouble.
18 Come near and rescue me;
     deliver me because of my foes.

Jeremiah persecuted by Pashhur
20:1 When the priest Pashhur son of Immer, the official in charge of the temple of the Lord, heard Jeremiah prophesying these things, 2 he had Jeremiah the prophet beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper Gate of Benjamin at the Lord’s temple. 3 The next day, when Pashhur released him from the stocks, Jeremiah said to him, “The Lord’s name for you is not Pashhur, but Terror on Every Side. 4 For this is what the Lord says: ‘I will make you a terror to yourself and to all your friends; with your own eyes you will see them fall by the sword of their enemies. I will give all Judah into the hands of the king of Babylon, who will carry them away to Babylon or put them to the sword. 5 I will deliver all the wealth of this city into the hands of their enemies—all its products, all its valuables and all the treasures of the kings of Judah. They will take it away as plunder and carry it off to Babylon. 6 And you, Pashhur, and all who live in your house will go into exile to Babylon. There you will die and be buried, you and all your friends to whom you have prophesied lies.’”

What is secret will become known
11:53 When Jesus went outside, the Pharisees and the teachers of the law began to oppose him fiercely and to besiege him with questions, 54 waiting to catch him in something he might say.

12:1 Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 3 What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
