The Righteous Branch

23 (A)“Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” declares the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning (B)the shepherds who care for my people: “You have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. (C)Behold, I will attend to you for your evil deeds, declares the Lord. (D)Then I will gather the remnant of my flock (E)out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, (F)and they shall be fruitful and multiply. (G)I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, declares the Lord.

(H)“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous (I)Branch, and (J)he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved, and (K)Israel will (L)dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: (M)‘The Lord is our righteousness.’

The Lord Is My Shepherd

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my (A)shepherd; I shall not (B)want.
    He makes me lie down in green (C)pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.[a]
    He (D)restores my soul.
He (E)leads me in (F)paths of righteousness[b]
    for his (G)name's sake.

Even though I (H)walk through the valley of (I)the shadow of death,[c]
    I will (J)fear no evil,
for (K)you are with me;
    your (L)rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You (M)prepare a table before me
    in (N)the presence of my enemies;
you (O)anoint my head with oil;
    my (P)cup overflows.
Surely[d] goodness and mercy[e] shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall (Q)dwell[f] in the house of the Lord
    (R)forever.[g]

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

30 (A)(B)The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. 31 And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and (C)they had no leisure even to eat. 32 (D)And they went away in (E)the boat to a desolate place by themselves. 33 Now many saw them going and (F)recognized them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them. 34 When he went ashore he (G)saw a great crowd, and (H)he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.

Jesus Heals the Sick in Gennesaret

53 (A)When they had crossed over, they came to land at (B)Gennesaret and moored to the shore. 54 And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately (C)recognized him 55 and ran about the whole region and began to bring (D)the sick people (E)on their beds to wherever they heard he was. 56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, (F)they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even (G)the fringe of his garment. And (H)as many as touched it were made well.
