Jeremiah 14:7-10Revised Standard Version (RSV)

“Though our iniquities testify against us,
    act, O Lord, for thy name’s sake;
for our backslidings are many,
    we have sinned against thee.
O thou hope of Israel,
    its savior in time of trouble,
why shouldst thou be like a stranger in the land,
    like a wayfarer who turns aside to tarry for a night?
Why shouldst thou be like a man confused,
    like a mighty man who cannot save?
Yet thou, O Lord, art in the midst of us,
    and we are called by thy name;
    leave us not.”

10 Thus says the Lord concerning this people:
“They have loved to wander thus,
    they have not restrained their feet;
therefore the Lord does not accept them
    now he will remember their iniquity
    and punish their sins.”

Jeremiah 14:19-22Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The People Plead for Mercy

19 Hast thou utterly rejected Judah?
    Does thy soul loathe Zion?
Why hast thou smitten us
    so that there is no healing for us?
We looked for peace, but no good came;
    for a time of healing, but behold, terror.
20 We acknowledge our wickedness, O Lord,
    and the iniquity of our fathers,
    for we have sinned against thee.
21 Do not spurn us, for thy name’s sake;
    do not dishonor thy glorious throne;
    remember and do not break thy covenant with us.
22 Are there any among the false gods of the nations that can bring rain?
    Or can the heavens give showers?
Art thou not he, O Lord our God?
    We set our hope on thee,
    for thou doest all these things.

2 Timothy 4Revised Standard Version (RSV)

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, convince, rebuke, and exhort, be unfailing in patience and in teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths. As for you, always be steady, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfil your ministry.

For I am already on the point of being sacrificed; the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.

Personal Instructions

Do your best to come to me soon. 10 For Demas, in love with this present world, has deserted me and gone to Thessaloni′ca; Crescens has gone to Galatia,[a] Titus to Dalmatia. 11 Luke alone is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you; for he is very useful in serving me. 12 Tych′icus I have sent to Ephesus. 13 When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Tro′as, also the books, and above all the parchments. 14 Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; the Lord will requite him for his deeds. 15 Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message. 16 At my first defense no one took my part; all deserted me. May it not be charged against them! 17 But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength to proclaim the message fully, that all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion’s mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil and save me for his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Final Greetings and Benediction

19 Greet Prisca and Aq′uila, and the household of Onesiph′orus. 20 Eras′tus remained at Corinth; Troph′imus I left ill at Mile′tus. 21 Do your best to come before winter. Eubu′lus sends greetings to you, as do Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brethren.

22 The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.

Luke 18:9-14Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
