The Daily Lectionary
SATURDAY, June 27, 2020
Psalm 89:1-4, 15-18; Jeremiah 28:1-4; Luke 17:1-4
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

I sing of your love
1  I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
     with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known
     through all generations.
2  I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
     that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
3  You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
     I have sworn to David my servant,
4  ‘I will establish your line forever
     and make your throne firm through all generations.’”

15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
     who walk in the light of your presence, Lord.
16 They rejoice in your name all day long;
     they celebrate your righteousness.
17 For you are their glory and strength,
     and by your favor you exalt our horn.
18 Indeed, our shield belongs to the Lord,
     our king to the Holy One of Israel.

Hananiah prophesies falsely
28:1 In the fifth month of that same year, the fourth year, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, the prophet Hananiah son of Azzur, who was from Gibeon, said to me in the house of the Lord in the presence of the priests and all the people: 2 “This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: ‘I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon. 3 Within two years I will bring back to this place all the articles of the Lord’s house that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon removed from here and took to Babylon. 4 I will also bring back to this place Jehoiachin son of Jehoiakim king of Judah and all the other exiles from Judah who went to Babylon,’ declares the Lord, ‘for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon.’”

Causing little ones to stumble
17:1 Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. 2 It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3 So watch yourselves.

“If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. 4 Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.”
