I was glad when they said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the Lord.' Psalm 122:1 Confession of Sin
Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.or this
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

The Word of the Lord. Response :
Thanks be to God.
Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation. (2)
Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray. (3)
My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up. (4)
For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, Nor shall evil dwell with You.
(5) The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. (6) You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. (7) But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple. (8) Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; Make Your way straight before my face.
(9) For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is destruction; Their throat is an open tomb; They flatter with their tongue. (10) Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels; Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, For they have rebelled against You. (11) But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. (12) For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure. (2)
Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak; O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled. (3)
My soul also is greatly troubled; But You, O LORD -- how long? (4)
Return, O LORD, deliver me! Oh, save me for Your mercies' sake!
(5) For in death there is no remembrance of You; In the grave who will give You thanks? (6) I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears. (7) My eye wastes away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies. (8) Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping.
(9) The LORD has heard my supplication; The LORD will receive my prayer. (10) Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.
And the LORD spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan across from Jericho, saying: (2)
"Command the children of Israel that they give the Levites cities to dwell in from the inheritance of their possession, and you shall also give the Levites common-land around the cities. (3)
"They shall have the cities to dwell in; and their common-land shall be for their cattle, for their herds, and for all their animals. (9)
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, (10)
"Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan, (11)
'then you shall appoint cities to be cities of refuge for you, that the manslayer who kills any person accidentally may flee there. (12)
'They shall be cities of refuge for you from the avenger, that the manslayer may not die until he stands before the congregation in judgment.
(13) 'And of the cities which you give, you shall have six cities of refuge. (14) You shall appoint three cities on this side of the Jordan, and three cities you shall appoint in the land of Canaan, which will be cities of refuge. (15) 'These six cities shall be for refuge for the children of Israel, for the stranger, and for the sojourner among them, that anyone who kills a person accidentally may flee there. (30) Whoever kills a person, the murderer shall be put to death on the testimony of witnesses; but one witness is not sufficient testimony against a person for the death penalty. (31) Moreover you shall take no ransom for the life of a murderer who is guilty of death, but he shall surely be put to death. (32) 'And you shall take no ransom for him who has fled to his city of refuge, that he may return to dwell in the land before the death of the priest. (33) So you shall not pollute the land where you are; for blood defiles the land, and no atonement can be made for the land, for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.
(34) 'Therefore do not defile the land which you inhabit, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel.' "
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (32)
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (33)
Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. (34)
Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
(35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (36) As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter." (37) Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. (38) For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,
(39) nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. (14)
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation. (15)
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. (16)
"Woe to you, blind guides, who say, 'Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.'
(17) "Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifies the gold? (18) "And, 'Whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gift that is on it, he is obliged to perform it.' (19) "Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifies the gift? (20) "Therefore he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by all things on it.
(21) "He who swears by the temple, swears by it and by Him who dwells in it. (22) "And he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by Him who sits on it. (23) "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. (24) "Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
(25) "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence. (26) "Blind Pharisee, first cleanse the inside of the cup and dish, that the outside of them may be clean also.
