Numbers 27:1-23
1. Then the daughters of Zelophehad came forward. Zelophehad was son of Hepher son of Gilead son of Machir son of Manasseh son of Joseph, a member of the Manassite clans. The names of his daughters were: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
2. They stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the leaders, and all the congregation, at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and they said,
3. "Our father died in the wilderness; he was not among the company of those who gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah, but died for his own sin; and he had no sons.
4. Why should the name of our father be taken away from his clan because he had no son? Give to us a possession among our father's brothers."
5. Moses brought their case before the LORD.
6. And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
7. The daughters of Zelophehad are right in what they are saying; you shall indeed let them possess an inheritance among their father's brothers and pass the inheritance of their father on to them.
8. You shall also say to the Israelites, "If a man dies, and has no son, then you shall pass his inheritance on to his daughter.
9. If he has no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance to his brothers.
10. If he has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
11. And if his father has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to the nearest kinsman of his clan, and he shall possess it. It shall be for the Israelites a statute and ordinance, as the LORD commanded Moses."
12. The LORD said to Moses, "Go up this mountain of the Abarim range, and see the land that I have given to the Israelites.
13. When you have seen it, you also shall be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was,
14. because you rebelled against my word in the wilderness of Zin when the congregation quarreled with me. You did not show my holiness before their eyes at the waters." (These are the waters of Meribath-kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)
15. Moses spoke to the LORD, saying,
16. "Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint someone over the congregation
17. who shall go out before them and come in before them, who shall lead them out and bring them in, so that the congregation of the LORD may not be like sheep without a shepherd."
18. So the LORD said to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay your hand upon him;
19. have him stand before Eleazar the priest and all the congregation, and commission him in their sight.
20. You shall give him some of your authority, so that all the congregation of the Israelites may obey.
21. But he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the decision of the Urim before the LORD; at his word they shall go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he and all the Israelites with him, the whole congregation."
22. So Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole congregation;
23. he laid his hands on him and commissioned him-- as the LORD had directed through Moses.

Numbers 28:1-31
1. The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
2. Command the Israelites, and say to them: My offering, the food for my offerings by fire, my pleasing odor, you shall take care to offer to me at its appointed time.
3. And you shall say to them, This is the offering by fire that you shall offer to the LORD: two male lambs a year old without blemish, daily, as a regular offering.
4. One lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight
5. also one-tenth of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil.
6. It is a regular burnt offering, ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the LORD.
7. Its drink offering shall be one-fourth of a hin for each lamb; in the sanctuary you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the LORD.
8. The other lamb you shall offer at twilight with a grain offering and a drink offering like the one in the morning; you shall offer it as an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the LORD.
9. On the sabbath day: two male lambs a year old without blemish, and two-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, and its drink offering--
10. this is the burnt offering for every sabbath, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
11. At the beginnings of your months you shall offer a burnt offering to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old without blemish;
12. also three-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for each bull; and two-tenths of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for the one ram;
13. and one-tenth of choice flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for every lamb-- a burnt offering of pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the LORD.
14. Their drink offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bull, one-third of a hin for a ram, and one-fourth of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year.
15. And there shall be one male goat for a sin offering to the LORD; it shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
16. On the fourteenth day of the first month there shall be a passover offering to the LORD.
17. And on the fifteenth day of this month is a festival; seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.
18. On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall not work at your occupations.
19. You shall offer an offering by fire, a burnt offering to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old; see that they are without blemish.
20. Their grain offering shall be of choice flour mixed with oil: three-tenths of an ephah shall you offer for a bull, and two-tenths for a ram;
21. one-tenth shall you offer for each of the seven lambs;
22. also one male goat for a sin offering, to make atonement for you.
23. You shall offer these in addition to the burnt offering of the morning, which belongs to the regular burnt offering.
24. In the same way you shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the LORD; it shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
25. And on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations.
26. On the day of the first fruits, when you offer a grain offering of new grain to the LORD at your festival of weeks, you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations.
27. You shall offer a burnt offering, a pleasing odor to the LORD: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old.
28. Their grain offering shall be of choice flour mixed with oil, three-tenths of an ephah for each bull, two-tenths for one ram,
29. one-tenth for each of the seven lambs;
30. with one male goat, to make atonement for you.
31. In addition to the regular burnt offering with its grain offering, you shall offer them and their drink offering. They shall be without blemish.

Psalms 34:8-14
8. O taste and see that the LORD is good; happy are those who take refuge in him.
9. O fear the LORD, you his holy ones, for those who fear him have no want.
10. The young lions suffer want and hunger, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
11. Come, O children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12. Which of you desires life, and covets many days to enjoy good?
13. Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.
14. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

Proverbs 11:29-29
29. Those who trouble their households will inherit wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.

Mark 14:1-26
1. It was two days before the Passover and the festival of Unleavened Bread. The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him;
2. for they said, "Not during the festival, or there may be a riot among the people."
3. While he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very costly ointment of nard, and she broke open the jar and poured the ointment on his head.
4. But some were there who said to one another in anger, "Why was the ointment wasted in this way?
5. For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor." And they scolded her.
6. But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do you trouble her? She has performed a good service for me.
7. For you always have the poor with you, and you can show kindness to them whenever you wish; but you will not always have me.
8. She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for its burial.
9. Truly I tell you, wherever the good news is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told in remembrance of her."
10. Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went to the chief priests in order to betray him to them.
11. When they heard it, they were greatly pleased, and promised to give him money. So he began to look for an opportunity to betray him.
12. On the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb is sacrificed, his disciples said to him, "Where do you want us to go and make the preparations for you to eat the Passover?"
13. So he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you; follow him,
14. and wherever he enters, say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks, Where is my guest room where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'
15. He will show you a large room upstairs, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there."
16. So the disciples set out and went to the city, and found everything as he had told them; and they prepared the Passover meal.
17. When it was evening, he came with the twelve.
18. And when they had taken their places and were eating, Jesus said, "Truly I tell 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 after another, "Surely, not I?"
20. He said to them, "It is one of the twelve, one who is dipping bread into the bowl with me.
21. For the Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that one by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that one not to have been born."
22. While they were eating, he took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to them, and said, "Take; this is my body."
23. Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, and all of them drank from it.
24. He said to them, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
25. Truly I tell you, I will never again drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
26. When they had sung the hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
