OLD TESTAMENT                                                                                                           Ruth 1:1-19a

In the days when the judges ruled there was a famine in the land, and a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he and his wife and his two sons. e name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion; they were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. ey went into the country of Moab and remained there. But Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons. these took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. ey lived there about ten years; and both Mahlon and Chilion died, so that the woman was bereft of her two sons and her husband. en she started with her daughters-in-law to return from the country of Moab, for she had heard in the country of Moab that the LORd had visited his people and given them food. So she set out from the place where she was, with her two daughters-in-law, and they went on the way to return to the land of Judah. Naomi said to her two daughters in-law,“Go, return each of you to her mother’s house. May the LORd deal kindly with you, as you have dealt with the dead and with me. The LORd grant that you may find a home, each of you in the house of her husband!” en she kissed them, and they lifted up their voices and wept. And they said to her,“No, we will return with you to your people.” But Naomi said, “Turn back, my daughters, why will you go with me? Have I yet sons in my womb that they may become your husbands? Turn back, my daughters, go your way, for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, even if I should have a husband this night and should bear sons, would you therefore wait till they were grown? Would you therefore refrain from marrying? No, my daughters, for it is exceedingly bitter to me for your sake that the hand of the LORd has gone forth against me.”en they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-inlaw, but Ruth clung to her. And she said,“See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.” But Ruth said, “Entreat me not to leave you or to return from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God; where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORd do so to me and more also if even death parts me from you.” And when Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more. So the two of them went on until they came to Bethlehem.   The Word of the Lord.

THE EPISTLE                                                                                                              2 Timothy 2:3-15

Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier on service gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to satisfy the one who enlisted him. An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules. It is the hardworking farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops. ink over what I say, for the Lord will grant you understanding in everything. Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descended from david, as preached in my gospel, the gospel for which I am suffering and wearing fetters like a criminal. But the word of God is not fettered. erefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain salvation in Christ Jesus with its eternal glory. e saying is sure: If we have died with him, we shall also live with him; if we endure, we shall also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful—for he cannot deny himself. Remind them of this, and charge them before the Lord to avoid disputing about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. The Word of the Lord .


THE GOSPEL                                                                                                              Luke 17:11-19      

On the way to Jerusalem [Jesus] was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance and lifted up their voices and said,“Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. en one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. en said Jesus, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” And he said to him,“Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”  The Gospel of Our LORD.
