The Request of James and John

35 (A)And James and John, (B)the sons of Zebedee, came up to him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us (C)whatever we ask of you.” 36 And he said to them, (D)“What do you want me to do for you?” 37 And they said to him, “Grant us (E)to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, (F)in your glory.” 38 Jesus said to them, (G)“You do not know what you are asking. Are you able (H)to drink the cup that I drink, or (I)to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” 39 And they said to him, “We are able.” And Jesus said to them, (J)“The cup that I drink (K)you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, (L)you will be baptized, 40 but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, (M)but it is for those for whom it has been (N)prepared.” 41 And when the ten heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. 42 (O)And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles (P)lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But (Q)it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant,[a] 44 and whoever would be first among you must be (R)slave[b] of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but (S)to serve, and (T)to give his life as a ransom for (U)many.”

Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus

46 (V)And they came to Jericho. And (W)as he was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a great crowd, Bartimaeus, (X)a blind beggar, the son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside. 47 And when he heard that it was (Y)Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 And many (Z)rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 And Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, (AA)“Take heart. Get up; he is calling you.” 50 And throwing off his (AB)cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus said to him, (AC)“What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, (AD)“Rabbi, let me recover my sight.” 52 And Jesus said to him, “Go your way; (AE)your faith has (AF)made you well.” And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.

Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord

A Psalm.

98 Oh sing to the Lord (A)a new song,
    for he has done (B)marvelous things!
His (C)right hand and his holy arm
    have worked salvation for him.
The Lord has (D)made known his salvation;
    he has (E)revealed his righteousness in (F)the sight of the nations.
He has (G)remembered his (H)steadfast love and faithfulness
    to the house of Israel.
All (I)the ends of the earth have seen
    (J)the salvation of our God.

(K)Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
    (L)break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
    with the lyre and the (M)sound of melody!
With (N)trumpets and the sound of (O)the horn
    (P)make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!

(Q)Let the sea roar, and (R)all that fills it;
    (S)the world and those who dwell in it!
Let the rivers (T)clap their hands;
    let (U)the hills sing for joy together
before the Lord, for he comes
    to (V)judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
    and the peoples with equity.
