TWENTY-SECOND SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY 30B

 

Jeremiah 31:7-9

Thus says the Lord: "Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, 'The Lord has saved his people, the remnant of Israel.'  Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the farthest parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her who is in travail, together; a great company, they shall return here.  With weeping they shall come, and with consolations I will lead them back, I will make them walk by brooks of water, in a straight path in which they shall not stumble; for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my first-born."

 

Ps 126

When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream.

Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy.

Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them."

The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad.

Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like the watercourses in the Negeb!

May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy!

He that goes forth weeping,bearing the seed for sowing,

shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

 

Hebrews 5:1-6

Every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.  He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness.  Because of this he is bound to offer sacrifice for his own sins as well as for those of the people.  And one does not take the honour upon himself, but he is called by God, just as Aaron was.  So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, "You are my Son, today I have begotten you"; as he says also in another place, "You are a priest for ever, according to the order of Melchizedek."

 

Mark 10: 46-52

At that time: As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great multitude, Bartimaeus, a blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside.  And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"  And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"

And Jesus stopped and said, "Call him."

And they called the blind man, saying to him, "Take heart; rise, he is calling you."  

And throwing off his cloak he sprang up and came to Jesus.  And Jesus said to him, "What do you want me to do for you?"

And the blind man said to him, "Master, let me receive my sight."

And Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well."  And immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.
