Numbers 7:1-89
1. When Moses finished setting up the tabernacle, he anointed it and consecrated it and all its furnishings. He also anointed and consecrated the altar and all its utensils.
2. Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of families who were the tribal leaders in charge of those who were counted, made offerings.
3. They brought as their gifts before the LORD six covered carts and twelve oxen-an ox from each leader and a cart from every two. These they presented before the tabernacle.
4. The LORD said to Moses,
5. "Accept these from them, that they may be used in the work at the Tent of Meeting. Give them to the Levites as each man's work requires."
6. So Moses took the carts and oxen and gave them to the Levites.
7. He gave two carts and four oxen to the Gershonites, as their work required,
8. and he gave four carts and eight oxen to the Merarites, as their work required. They were all under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest.
9. But Moses did not give any to the Kohathites, because they were to carry on their shoulders the holy things, for which they were responsible.
10. When the altar was anointed, the leaders brought their offerings for its dedication and presented them before the altar.

Numbers 8:1-26
1. The LORD said to Moses,
2. "Speak to Aaron and say to him, 'When you set up the seven lamps, they are to light the area in front of the lampstand.'"
3. Aaron did so; he set up the lamps so that they faced forward on the lampstand, just as the LORD commanded Moses.
4. This is how the lampstand was made: It was made of hammered gold-from its base to its blossoms. The lampstand was made exactly like the pattern the LORD had shown Moses.
5. The LORD said to Moses:
6. "Take the Levites from among the other Israelites and make them ceremonially clean.
7. To purify them, do this: Sprinkle the water of cleansing on them; then have them shave their whole bodies and wash their clothes, and so purify themselves.
8. Have them take a young bull with its grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil; then you are to take a second young bull for a sin offering.
9. Bring the Levites to the front of the Tent of Meeting and assemble the whole Israelite community.
10. You are to bring the Levites before the LORD, and the Israelites are to lay their hands on them.
11. Aaron is to present the Levites before the LORD as a wave offering from the Israelites, so that they may be ready to do the work of the LORD.
12. "After the Levites lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, use the one for a sin offering to the LORD and the other for a burnt offering, to make atonement for the Levites.
13. Have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons and then present them as a wave offering to the LORD.
14. In this way you are to set the Levites apart from the other Israelites, and the Levites will be mine.
15. "After you have purified the Levites and presented them as a wave offering, they are to come to do their work at the Tent of Meeting.
16. They are the Israelites who are to be given wholly to me. I have taken them as my own in place of the firstborn, the first male offspring from every Israelite woman.
17. Every firstborn male in Israel, whether man or animal, is mine. When I struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, I set them apart for myself.
18. And I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons in Israel.
19. Of all the Israelites, I have given the Levites as gifts to Aaron and his sons to do the work at the Tent of Meeting on behalf of the Israelites and to make atonement for them so that no plague will strike the Israelites when they go near the sanctuary."
20. Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses.
21. The Levites purified themselves and washed their clothes. Then Aaron presented them as a wave offering before the LORD and made atonement for them to purify them.
22. After that, the Levites came to do their work at the Tent of Meeting under the supervision of Aaron and his sons. They did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses.
23. The LORD said to Moses,
24. "This applies to the Levites: Men twenty-five years old or more shall come to take part in the work at the Tent of Meeting,
25. but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer.
26. They may assist their brothers in performing their duties at the Tent of Meeting, but they themselves must not do the work. This, then, is how you are to assign the responsibilities of the Levites."

Psalms 31:1-5
1. In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.
2. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
3. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
4. Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge.
5. Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.

Proverbs 11:4-6
4. Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.
5. The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness.
6. The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires.

Mark 9:1-29
1. And he said to them, "I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power."
2. After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.
3. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.
4. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
5. Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."
6. (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)
7. Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"
8. Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.
9. As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
10. They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
11. And they asked him, "Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
12. Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah does come first, and restores all things. Why then is it written that the Son of Man must suffer much and be rejected?
13. But I tell you, Elijah has come, and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him."
14. When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them.
15. As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.
16. "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17. A man in the crowd answered, "Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech.
18. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not."
19. "O unbelieving generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me."
20. So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.
21. Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?"
22. "From childhood," he answered. "It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us."
23. "'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
24. Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"
25. When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. "You deaf and mute spirit," he said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again."
26. The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, "He's dead."
27. But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
28. After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
29. He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer. "
