Numbers 7:1-89
1. On the day when Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle, and had anointed and consecrated it with all its furnishings, and had anointed and consecrated the altar with all its utensils,
2. the leaders of Israel, heads of their ancestral houses, the leaders of the tribes, who were over those who were enrolled, made offerings.
3. They brought their offerings before the LORD, six covered wagons and twelve oxen, a wagon for every two of the leaders, and for each one an ox; they presented them before the tabernacle.
4. Then the LORD said to Moses:
5. Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the service of the tent of meeting, and give them to the Levites, to each according to his service.
6. So Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them to the Levites.
7. Two wagons and four oxen he gave to the Gershonites, according to their service;
8. and four wagons and eight oxen he gave to the Merarites, according to their service, under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest.
9. But to the Kohathites he gave none, because they were charged with the care of the holy things that had to be carried on the shoulders.
10. The leaders also presented offerings for the dedication of the altar at the time when it was anointed; the leaders presented their offering before the altar.

89. When Moses went into the tent of meeting to speak with the LORD, he would hear the voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat that was on the ark of the covenant from between the two cherubim; thus it spoke to him.

Numbers 8:1-26
1. The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
2. Speak to Aaron and say to him: When you set up the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lampstand.
3. Aaron did so; he set up its lamps to give light in front of the lampstand, as the LORD had commanded Moses.
4. Now this was how the lampstand was made, out of hammered work of gold. From its base to its flowers, it was hammered work; according to the pattern that the LORD had shown Moses, so he made the lampstand.
5. The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
6. Take the Levites from among the Israelites and cleanse them.
7. Thus you shall do to them, to cleanse them: sprinkle the water of purification on them, have them shave their whole body with a razor and wash their clothes, and so cleanse themselves.
8. Then let them take a young bull and its grain offering of choice flour mixed with oil, and you shall take another young bull for a sin offering.
9. You shall bring the Levites before the tent of meeting, and assemble the whole congregation of the Israelites.
10. When you bring the Levites before the LORD, the Israelites shall lay their hands on the Levites,
11. and Aaron shall present the Levites before the LORD as an elevation offering from the Israelites, that they may do the service of the LORD.
12. The Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and he shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering to the LORD, to make atonement for the Levites.
13. Then you shall have the Levites stand before Aaron and his sons, and you shall present them as an elevation offering to the LORD.
14. Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the other Israelites, and the Levites shall be mine.
15. Thereafter the Levites may go in to do service at the tent of meeting, once you have cleansed them and presented them as an elevation offering.
16. For they are unreservedly given to me from among the Israelites; I have taken them for myself, in place of all that open the womb, the firstborn of all the Israelites.
17. For all the firstborn among the Israelites are mine, both human and animal. On the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I consecrated them for myself,
18. but I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn among the Israelites.
19. Moreover, I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the Israelites, to do the service for the Israelites at the tent of meeting, and to make atonement for the Israelites, in order that there may be no plague among the Israelites for coming too close to the sanctuary.
20. Moses and Aaron and the whole congregation of the Israelites did with the Levites accordingly; the Israelites did with the Levites just as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning them.
21. The Levites purified themselves from sin and washed their clothes; then Aaron presented them as an elevation offering before the LORD, and Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them.
22. Thereafter the Levites went in to do their service in the tent of meeting in attendance on Aaron and his sons. As the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so they did with them.
23. The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
24. This applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they shall begin to do duty in the service of the tent of meeting;
25. and from the age of fifty years they shall retire from the duty of the service and serve no more.
26. They may assist their brothers in the tent of meeting in carrying out their duties, but they shall perform no service. Thus you shall do with the Levites in assigning their duties.

Psalms 31:1-5
1. In you, O LORD, I seek refuge; do not let me ever be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me.
2. Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily. Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me.
3. You are indeed my rock and my fortress; for your name's sake lead me and guide me,
4. take me out of the net that is hidden for me, for you are my refuge.
5. Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.

Proverbs 11:4-6
4. Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.
5. The righteousness of the blameless keeps their ways straight, but the wicked fall by their own wickedness.
6. The righteousness of the upright saves them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their schemes.

Mark 9:1-29
1. And he said to them, "Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see that the kingdom of God has come with power."
2. Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them,
3. and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them.
4. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
5. Then Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
6. He did not know what to say, for they were terrified.
7. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, "This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!"
8. Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.
9. As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
10. So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead could mean.
11. Then they asked him, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
12. He said to them, "Elijah is indeed coming first to restore all things. How then is it written about the Son of Man, that he is to go through many sufferings and be treated with contempt?
13. But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written about him."
14. When they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and some scribes arguing with them.
15. When the whole crowd saw him, they were immediately overcome with awe, and they ran forward to greet him.
16. He asked them, "What are you arguing about with them?"
17. Someone from the crowd answered him, "Teacher, I brought you my son; he has a spirit that makes him unable to speak;
18. and whenever it seizes him, it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, but they could not do so."
19. He answered them, "You faithless generation, how much longer must I be among you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him to me."
20. And they brought the boy to him. When the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth.
21. Jesus asked the father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From childhood.
22. It has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you are able to do anything, have pity on us and help us."
23. Jesus said to him, "If you are able!-- All things can be done for the one who believes."
24. Immediately the father of the child cried out, "I believe; help my unbelief!"
25. When Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You spirit that keeps this boy from speaking and hearing, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again!"
26. After crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, "He is dead."
27. But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he was able to stand.
28. When he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, "Why could we not cast it out?"
29. He said to them, "This kind can come out only through prayer."
