Numbers 27:1-23
1. The daughters of Zelophehad approached; [Zelophehad was the] son of Hepher, son of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh from the clans of Manasseh, the son of Joseph. These were the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
2. They stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the leaders, and the entire community at the entrance to the tent of meeting and said,
3. "Our father died in the wilderness, but he was not among Korah's followers, who gathered together against the LORD. Instead, he died because of his own sin, and he had no sons.
4. Why should the name of our father be taken away from his clan? Since he had no son, give us property among our father's brothers."
5. Moses brought their case before the LORD,
6. and the LORD answered him,
7. "What Zelophehad's daughters say is correct. You are to give them hereditary property among their father's brothers and transfer their father's inheritance to them.
8. Tell the Israelites: When a man dies without having a son, transfer his inheritance to his daughter.
9. If he has no daughter, give his inheritance to his brothers.
10. If he has no brothers, give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
11. If his father has no brothers, give his inheritance to the nearest relative of his clan, and he will take possession of it. This is to be a statutory ordinance for the Israelites as the LORD commanded Moses."
12. Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go up this mountain of the Abarim [range] and see the land that I have given the Israelites.
13. After you have seen it, you will also be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother was.
14. When the community quarreled in the Wilderness of Zin, both of you rebelled against My command to show My holiness in their sight at the waters." Those were the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the Wilderness of Zin.
15. So Moses appealed to the LORD,
16. "May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the community
17. who will go out before them and come back in before them, and who will bring them out and bring them in, so that the LORD's community won't be like sheep without a shepherd."
18. The LORD replied to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man who has the Spirit in him, and lay your hands on him.
19. Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole community, and commission him in their sight.
20. Confer some of your authority on him so that the entire Israelite community will obey [him].
21. He will stand before Eleazar who will consult the LORD for him with the decision of the Urim. He and all the Israelites with him, even the entire community, will go out and come back in at his command."
22. Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua, had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire community,
23. laid his hands on him, and commissioned him, as the LORD had spoken through Moses.

Numbers 28:1-31
1. The LORD spoke to Moses,
2. "Command the Israelites and say to them: Be sure to present to Me at its appointed time My offering and My food as My fire offering, a pleasing aroma to Me.
3. And say to them: This is the fire offering you are to present to the LORD: "Each day [present] two unblemished year-old male lambs as a regular burnt offering.
4. Offer one lamb in the morning and the other lamb at twilight,
5. along with two quarts of fine flour for a grain offering mixed with a quart of beaten olive oil.
6. It is a regular burnt offering established at Mount Sinai for a pleasing aroma, a fire offering to the LORD.
7. The drink offering is to be a quart with each lamb. Pour out the offering of beer to the LORD in the sanctuary area.
8. Offer the second lamb at twilight, along with the same kind of grain offering and drink offering as in the morning. It is a fire offering, a pleasing aroma to the LORD.
9. "On the Sabbath day [present] two unblemished year-old male lambs, four quarts of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering, and its drink offering.
10. It is the burnt offering for every Sabbath, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
11. "At the beginning of each of your months present a burnt offering to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old-- [all] unblemished--
12. with six quarts of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for each bull, four quarts of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for the ram,
13. and two quarts of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for each lamb. It is a burnt offering, a pleasing aroma, a fire offering to the LORD.
14. Their drink offerings are to be two quarts of wine with each bull, one and a third quarts with the ram, and one quart with each male lamb. This is the monthly burnt offering for all the months of the year.
15. And one male goat is to be offered as a sin offering to the Lord, in addition to the regular burnt offering with its drink offering.
16. "The Passover to the LORD comes in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month.
17. On the fifteenth day of this month there will be a festival; unleavened bread is to be eaten for seven days.
18. On the first day there is to be a sacred assembly; you are not to do any daily work.
19. Present a fire offering, a burnt offering to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old. Your animals are to be unblemished.
20. The grain offering with them is to be of fine flour mixed with oil; offer six quarts with each bull and four quarts with the ram.
21. Offer two quarts with each of the seven lambs
22. and one male goat for a sin offering to make atonement for yourselves.
23. Offer these with the morning burnt offering that is part of the regular burnt offering.
24. You are to offer the same food each day for seven days as a fire offering, a pleasing aroma to the LORD. It is to be offered with its drink offering and the regular burnt offering.
25. On the seventh day you are to hold a sacred assembly; you are not to do any daily work.
26. "On the day of firstfruits, you are to hold a sacred assembly when you present an offering of new grain to the LORD at your [Festival of] Weeks; you are not to do any daily work.
27. Present a burnt offering for a pleasing aroma to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old,
28. with their grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil, six quarts with each bull, four quarts with the ram,
29. and two quarts with each of the seven lambs
30. and one male goat to make atonement for yourselves.
31. Offer [them] with their drink offerings in addition to the regular burnt offering and its grain offering. Your animals are to be unblemished.

Psalms 34:8-14
8. Taste and see that the LORD is good. How happy is the man who takes refuge in Him!
9. Fear the LORD, you His saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing.
10. Young lions lack food and go hungry, but those who seek the LORD will not lack any good thing.
11. Come, children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12. Who is the man who delights in life, loving a long life to enjoy what is good?
13. Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceitful speech.
14. Turn away from evil and do what is good; seek peace and pursue it.

Proverbs 11:29-29
29. The one who brings ruin on his household will inherit the wind, and a fool will be a slave to someone whose heart is wise.

Mark 14:1-26
1. After two days it was the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a treacherous way to arrest and kill Him.
2. "Not during the festival," they said, "or there may be rioting among the people."
3. While He was in Bethany at the house of Simon who had a serious skin disease, as He was reclining at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of pure and expensive fragrant oil of nard. She broke the jar and poured it on His head.
4. But some were expressing indignation to one another: "Why has this fragrant oil been wasted?
5. For this oil might have been sold for more than 300 denarii and given to the poor." And they began to scold her.
6. Then Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why are you bothering her? She has done a noble thing for Me.
7. You always have the poor with you, and you can do good for them whenever you want, but you do not always have Me.
8. She has done what she could; she has anointed My body in advance for burial.
9. I assure you: Wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told in memory of her."
10. Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to hand Him over to them.
11. And when they heard this, they were glad and promised to give him silver. So he started looking for a good opportunity to betray Him.
12. On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when they sacrifice the Passover lamb, His disciples asked Him, "Where do You want us to go and prepare the Passover so You may eat it?"
13. So He sent two of His disciples and told them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a water jug will meet you. Follow him.
14. Wherever he enters, tell the owner of the house, 'The Teacher says, "Where is the guest room for Me to eat the Passover with My disciples?"'
15. He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make the preparations for us there."
16. So the disciples went out, entered the city, and found it just as He had told them, and they prepared the Passover.
17. When evening came, He arrived with the Twelve.
18. While they were reclining and eating, Jesus said, "I assure you: One of you will betray Me-- one who is eating with Me!"
19. They began to be distressed and to say to Him one by one, "Surely not I?"
20. He said to them, "[It is] one of the Twelve-- the one who is dipping [bread] with Me in the bowl.
21. For the Son of Man will go just as it is written about Him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."
22. As they were eating, He took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to them, and said, "Take [it]; this is My body."
23. Then He took a cup, and after giving thanks, He gave it to them, and so they all drank from it.
24. He said to them, "This is My blood [that establishes] the covenant; it is shed for many.
25. I assure you: I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it in a new way in the kingdom of God."
26. After singing psalms, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
