Reading 1: EX 40:16-21, 34-38

The first reading from the Book of Exodus.

Moses did so. According to all that Yahweh commanded him, so he did.

In the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, the tabernacle was raised up.

Moses raised up the tabernacle, and laid its sockets, and set up its boards, and put in its bars, and raised up its pillars.

He spread the covering over the tent, and put the roof of the tabernacle above on it, as Yahweh commanded Moses.

He took and put the covenant into the ark, and set the poles on the ark, and put the mercy seat above on the ark.

He brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the screen, and screened the ark of the covenant, as Yahweh commanded Moses.

Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and Yahweh’s glory filled the tabernacle.

Moses wasn’t able to enter into the Tent of Meeting, because the cloud stayed on it, and Yahweh’s glory filled the tabernacle.

When the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward, throughout all their journeys; but if the cloud wasn’t taken up, then they didn’t travel until the day that it was taken up.

For the cloud of Yahweh was on the tabernacle by day, and there was fire in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

Gospel of the Day: JN 11:19-27 or LK 10:38-42

From the gospel scripture according to John.

Many of the Jews had joined the women around Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother.

Then when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary stayed in the house.

Therefore Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you would have been here, my brother wouldn’t have died.

Even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.”

Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”

Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will still live, even if he dies.

Whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

She said to him, “Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Christ, God’s Son, he who comes into the world.”

or from the gospel verse according to Luke.

As they went on their way, he entered into a certain village, and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

She had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard his word.

But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she came up to him, and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister left me to serve alone? Ask her therefore to help me.”

Jesus answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is needed. Mary has chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
