Scripture Portion

Leviticus 23.1-2, 33-37a

1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2“Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, These are the appointed feasts of the Lord that you shall proclaim as holy convocations; they are my appointed feasts.

33 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 34 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month and for seven days is the Feast of Booths to the Lord. 35 On the first day shall be a holy convocation; you shall not do any ordinary work. 36 For seven days you shall present food offerings to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall hold a holy convocation and present a food offering to the Lord. It is a solemn assembly; you shall not do any ordinary work. 37These are the appointed feasts of the Lord…” (English Standard Version, emphasis mine).

Liturgical Portion

Psalm 132
1 Lord, remember David, *
and all his tribulations,
2 How he swore unto the Lord, *
and vowed a vow unto the Almighty God of Jacob:
3 “I will not come within the tabernacle of my house, *
nor climb up into my bed,
4 I will not allow my eyes to sleep, nor my eyelids to slumber, *
neither the temples of my head to take any rest,
5 Until I find a place for the temple of the Lord, *
a habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.”
6 Lo, we heard of the ark at Ephrathah *
and found it in the wood.
7 We will go into his tabernacle, *
and fall low on our knees before his footstool.
8 Arise, O Lord, into your resting-place, *
you and the ark of your strength
9 Let your priests be clothed with righteousness, *
and let your saints sing with joy.
10 For your servant David’s sake, *
turn not away the presence of your Anointed.
11 The Lord has made a faithful oath unto David, *
and he shall not shrink from it:
12 “Of the fruit of your body *
shall I set upon your throne.
13 If your children will keep my covenant, and my testimonies
that I shall teach them, *
their children also shall sit upon your throne for evermore.”
14 For the Lord has chosen Zion for himself; *
he has longed for her to be his habitation:
15 “This shall be my rest for ever; *
here will I dwell, for I have a delight therein.
16 I will bless her provisions with increase, *
and will satisfy her poor with bread.
17 I will clothe her priests with salvation, *
and her saints shall rejoice and sing.
18 There shall I make the horn of David flourish; *
I have prepared a lantern for my Anointed.
19 As for his enemies, I shall clothe them with shame; *
but upon his head shall his crown flourish.”


Almighty God, by your Holy Spirit you have made us one with
your saints in heaven and on earth: Grant that in our earthly
pilgrimage we may always be supported by this fellowship of
love and prayer, and know ourselves to be surrounded by their
witness to your power and mercy; for the sake of Jesus Christ,
in whom all our intercessions are acceptable through the Spirit,
and who lives and reigns with you and the same Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. Amen.
from Book of Common Prayer, 2019, pg. 640
