Ezekiel 36:24-28

24 I will take you from the nations, and gather you from all the countries,

and bring you into your own land.  25 I will sprinkle clean water upon you,

and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your

idols I will cleanse you.  26 A new heart I will give you, and a new spirit I

will put within you; and I will remove from your body the heart of stone

and give you a heart of flesh.  27 I will put my spirit within you, and make

you follow my statutes and be careful to observe my ordinances.  28 Then

you shall live in the land that I gave to your ancestors; and you shall be

my people, and I will be your God.

Psalm 1

1  Blessed are they who have not walked

      in the counsel of the wicked, •

   nor lingered in the way of sinners,

      nor sat in the assembly of the scornful.

2  Their delight is in the law of the Lord •

   and they meditate on his law day and night.

3  Like a tree planted by streams of water

      bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither, •

   whatever they do, it shall prosper.

4  As for the wicked, it is not so with them; •

   they are like chaff which the wind blows away.

5  Therefore the wicked shall not be able to stand in the judgement, •

   nor the sinner in the congregation of the righteous.

6  For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, •

   but the way of the wicked shall perish.

Acts 1:15-17, 21-26

15  In those days Peter stood up among the believers (together the crowd

numbered about one hundred and twenty people) and said,  16 ‘Friends,

the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit through David

foretold concerning Judas, who became a guide for those who arrested

Jesus—  17 for he was numbered among us and was allotted his share in

this ministry.’ 

21 So one of the men who have accompanied us throughout the time that

the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,  22 beginning from the baptism

of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one of these must

become a witness with us to his resurrection.’  23 So they proposed two,

Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and

Matthias.  24 Then they prayed and said, ‘Lord, you know everyone’s

heart. Show us which one of these two you have chosen  25 to take the

place in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to

go to his own place.’  26 And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on

Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.

John 17:6-19

6 ‘Father, I have made your name known to those whom you gave me

from the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they

have kept your word.  7 Now they know that everything you have given me

is from you;  8 for the words that you gave to me I have given to them, and

they have received them and know in truth that I came from you; and

they have believed that you sent me.  9 I am asking on their behalf; I am

not asking on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those whom you gave

me, because they are yours.  10 All mine are yours, and yours are mine;

and I have been glorified in them.  11 And now I am no longer in the world,

but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect

them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as

we are one.  12 While I was with them, I protected them in your name that

you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost

except the one destined to be lost, so that the scripture might be

fulfilled.  13 But now I am coming to you, and I speak these things in the

world so that they may have my joy made complete in themselves.  14 I

have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they

do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.  15 I am not

asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them

from the evil one.  16 They do not belong to the world, just as I do not

belong to the world.  17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.  18 As

you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the

world.  19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be

sanctified in truth.
