SATURDAY, July 11, 2020
Psalm 119:105-112; Isaiah 2:1-4; John 12:44-50
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Your word is a lamp to my feet
105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
       a light on my path.
106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it,
       that I will follow your righteous laws.
107 I have suffered much;
       preserve my life, Lord, according to your word.
108 Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth,
       and teach me your laws.
109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands,
       I will not forget your law.
110 The wicked have set a snare for me,
       but I have not strayed from your precepts.
111 Your statutes are my heritage forever;
       they are the joy of my heart.
112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees
       to the very end.

Jacob collective name of Israel
2:1 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem:

2 In the last days

   the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established
     as the highest of the mountains;
   it will be exalted above the hills,
     and all nations will stream to it.

3 Many peoples will come and say,

   “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
     to the temple of the God of Jacob.
   He will teach us his ways,
     so that we may walk in his paths.”
   The law will go out from Zion,
     the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
4  He will judge between the nations
     and will settle disputes for many peoples.
   They will beat their swords into plowshares
     and their spears into pruning hooks.
   Nation will not take up sword against nation,
     nor will they train for war anymore.

I have come as light into the world
12:44 Then Jesus cried out, “Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. 45 The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

47 “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day. 49 For I did not speak on my own, but the Father who sent me commanded me to say all that I have spoken. 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say.”
