Leviticus 9:1-24
1. On the eighth day Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel.
2. He said to Aaron, "Take a bull calf for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.
3. And say to the people of Israel, 'Take a male goat for a sin offering; a calf and a lamb, yearlings without blemish, for a burnt offering;
4. and an ox and a ram for an offering of well-being to sacrifice before the LORD; and a grain offering mixed with oil. For today the LORD will appear to you.'"
5. They brought what Moses commanded to the front of the tent of meeting; and the whole congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.
6. And Moses said, "This is the thing that the LORD commanded you to do, so that the glory of the LORD may appear to you."
7. Then Moses said to Aaron, "Draw near to the altar and sacrifice your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself and for the people; and sacrifice the offering of the people, and make atonement for them; as the LORD has commanded."
8. Aaron drew near to the altar, and slaughtered the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.
9. The sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar; and the rest of the blood he poured out at the base of the altar.
10. But the fat, the kidneys, and the appendage of the liver from the sin offering he turned into smoke on the altar, as the LORD commanded Moses;
11. and the flesh and the skin he burned with fire outside the camp.
12. Then he slaughtered the burnt offering. Aaron's sons brought him the blood, and he dashed it against all sides of the altar.
13. And they brought him the burnt offering piece by piece, and the head, which he turned into smoke on the altar.
14. He washed the entrails and the legs and, with the burnt offering, turned them into smoke on the altar.
15. Next he presented the people's offering. He took the goat of the sin offering that was for the people, and slaughtered it, and presented it as a sin offering like the first one.
16. He presented the burnt offering, and sacrificed it according to regulation.
17. He presented the grain offering, and, taking a handful of it, he turned it into smoke on the altar, in addition to the burnt offering of the morning.
18. He slaughtered the ox and the ram as a sacrifice of well-being for the people. Aaron's sons brought him the blood, which he dashed against all sides of the altar,
19. and the fat of the ox and of the ram-- the broad tail, the fat that covers the entrails, the two kidneys and the fat on them, and the appendage of the liver.
20. They first laid the fat on the breasts, and the fat was turned into smoke on the altar;
21. and the breasts and the right thigh Aaron raised as an elevation offering before the LORD, as Moses had commanded.
22. Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them; and he came down after sacrificing the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the offering of well-being.
23. Moses and Aaron entered the tent of meeting, and then came out and blessed the people; and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people.
24. Fire came out from the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar; and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces.

Leviticus 10:1-20
1. Now Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, each took his censer, put fire in it, and laid incense on it; and they offered unholy fire before the LORD, such as he had not commanded them.
2. And fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD.
3. Then Moses said to Aaron, "This is what the LORD meant when he said, 'Through those who are near me I will show myself holy, and before all the people I will be glorified.'" And Aaron was silent.
4. Moses summoned Mishael and Elzaphan, sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to them, "Come forward, and carry your kinsmen away from the front of the sanctuary to a place outside the camp."
5. They came forward and carried them by their tunics out of the camp, as Moses had ordered.
6. And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons Eleazar and Ithamar, "Do not dishevel your hair, and do not tear your vestments, or you will die and wrath will strike all the congregation; but your kindred, the whole house of Israel, may mourn the burning that the LORD has sent.
7. You shall not go outside the entrance of the tent of meeting, or you will die; for the anointing oil of the LORD is on you." And they did as Moses had ordered.
8. And the LORD spoke to Aaron:
9. Drink no wine or strong drink, neither you nor your sons, when you enter the tent of meeting, that you may not die; it is a statute forever throughout your generations.
10. You are to distinguish between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean;
11. and you are to teach the people of Israel all the statutes that the LORD has spoken to them through Moses.
12. Moses spoke to Aaron and to his remaining sons, Eleazar and Ithamar: Take the grain offering that is left from the LORD's offerings by fire, and eat it unleavened beside the altar, for it is most holy;
13. you shall eat it in a holy place, because it is your due and your sons' due, from the offerings by fire to the LORD; for so I am commanded.
14. But the breast that is elevated and the thigh that is raised, you and your sons and daughters as well may eat in any clean place; for they have been assigned to you and your children from the sacrifices of the offerings of well-being of the people of Israel.
15. The thigh that is raised and the breast that is elevated they shall bring, together with the offerings by fire of the fat, to raise for an elevation offering before the LORD; they are to be your due and that of your children forever, as the LORD has commanded.
16. Then Moses made inquiry about the goat of the sin offering, and-- it had already been burned! He was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's remaining sons, and said,
17. "Why did you not eat the sin offering in the sacred area? For it is most holy, and God has given it to you that you may remove the guilt of the congregation, to make atonement on their behalf before the LORD.
18. Its blood was not brought into the inner part of the sanctuary. You should certainly have eaten it in the sanctuary, as I commanded."
19. And Aaron spoke to Moses, "See, today they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the LORD; and yet such things as these have befallen me! If I had eaten the sin offering today, would it have been agreeable to the LORD?"
20. And when Moses heard that, he agreed.

Psalms 25:1-7
1. To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.
2. O my God, in you I trust; do not let me be put to shame; do not let my enemies exult over me.
3. Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame; let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
4. Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.
5. Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long.
6. Be mindful of your mercy, O LORD, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.
7. Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for your goodness' sake, O LORD!

Proverbs 9:13-18
13. The foolish woman is loud; she is ignorant and knows nothing.
14. She sits at the door of her house, on a seat at the high places of the town,
15. calling to those who pass by, who are going straight on their way,
16. "You who are simple, turn in here!" And to those without sense she says,
17. "Stolen water is sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant."
18. But they do not know that the dead are there, that her guests are in the depths of Sheol.

Mark 1:23-45
23. Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit,
24. and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God."
25. But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"
26. And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.
27. They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, "What is this? A new teaching-- with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."
28. At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.
29. As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30. Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once.
31. He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.
32. That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons.
33. And the whole city was gathered around the door.
34. And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.
35. In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.
36. And Simon and his companions hunted for him.
37. When they found him, they said to him, "Everyone is searching for you."
38. He answered, "Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do."
39. And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.
40. A leper came to him begging him, and kneeling he said to him, "If you choose, you can make me clean."
41. Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, "I do choose. Be made clean!"
42. Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.
43. After sternly warning him he sent him away at once,
44. saying to him, "See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them."
45. But he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the word, so that Jesus could no longer go into a town openly, but stayed out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.
