1 st Reading : Genesis 2:4 b -9, 15-25 4 b In the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, 5 when no plant of the field was yet in the earth and no herb of the field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was no one to till the ground; 6 but a stream would rise from the earth, and water the whole face of the ground— 7 then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. 8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 9 Out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, ‘You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.’ 18 Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.’ 19 So out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field; but for the man there was not found a helper as his partner. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for out of Man this one was taken.’ 24 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.
2 nd Reading: Revelation 4
4 After   this   I   looked,   and   there   in   heaven   a   door
stood   open!   And   the   first   voice,   which   I   had
heard    speaking    to    me    like    a    trumpet,    said,
‘Come   up   here,   and   I   will   show   you   what   must
take    place    after    this.’ 2 At    once    I    was    in    the
spirit,   and   there   in   heaven   stood   a   throne,   with
one   seated   on   the   throne! 3 And   the   one   seated
there    looks    like    jasper    and    cornelian,    and
around   the   throne   is   a   rainbow   that   looks   like
an   emerald. 4 Around   the   throne   are   twenty-four
thrones,   and   seated   on   the   thrones   are   twenty-
four   elders,   dressed   in   white   robes,   with   golden
crowns    on    their    heads. 5 Coming    from    the
throne   are   flashes   of   lightning,   and   rumblings
and   peals   of   thunder,   and   in   front   of   the   throne
burn    seven    flaming    torches,    which    are    the
seven   spirits   of   God; 6 and   in   front   of   the   throne
there    is    something    like    a    sea    of    glass,    like
crystal.   Around   the   throne,   and   on   each   side   of
the   throne,   are   four   living   creatures,   full   of   eyes
in   front   and   behind: 7   the   first   living   creature
like   a   lion,   the   second   living   creature   like   an
ox,   the   third   living   creature   with   a   face   like   a
human   face,   and   the   fourth   living   creature   like
a   flying   eagle. 8 And   the   four   living   creatures,
each   of   them   with   six   wings,   are   full   of   eyes   all
around    and    inside.    Day    and    night    without
ceasing   they   sing,   ‘Holy,   holy,   holy,   the   Lord
God   the   Almighty,   who   was   and   is   and   is   to
come.’ 9 And   whenever   the   living   creatures   give
glory   and   honour   and   thanks   to   the   one   who   is
seated   on   the   throne,   who   lives   for   ever   and
ever, 10 the    twenty-four    elders    fall    before    the
one   who   is   seated   on   the   throne   and   worship
the   one   who   lives   for   ever   and   ever;   they   cast
their   crowns   before   the   throne,   singing, 11 ‘You
are   worthy,   our   Lord   and   God,   to   receive   glory
and    honour    and    power,    for    you    created    all
things,   and   by   your   will   they   existed   and   were
created.’ Gospel: Luke 8:22-25
Jesus Calms a Storm
22 One   day   he   got   into   a   boat   with   his   disciples,
and   he   said   to   them,   ‘Let   us   go   across   to   the
other   side   of   the   lake.’   So   they   put   out, 23 and
while   they   were   sailing   he   fell   asleep.   A   gale
swept    down    on    the    lake,    and    the    boat    was
filling    with    water,    and    they    were    in    danger.
24 They   went   to   him   and   woke   him   up,   shouting,
‘Master,    Master,    we    are    perishing!’    And    he
woke   up   and   rebuked   the   wind   and   the   raging
waves;   they   ceased,   and   there   was   a   calm. 25 He
said   to   them,   ‘Where   is   your   faith?’   They   were
afraid    and    amazed,    and    said    to    one    another,
‘Who   then   is   this,   that   he   commands   even   the
winds and the water, and they obey him?’

1st reading: Genesis 2:4

b

-9, 15-25

4

b

In the day that the Lord God made the

earth and the heavens,

5

when no plant of the

field was yet in the earth and no herb of the

field had yet sprung up—for the Lord God

had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and

there was no one to till the ground;

6

but a

stream would rise from the earth, and water

the whole face of the ground—

7

then the

Lord God formed man from the dust of the

ground, and breathed into his nostrils the

breath of life; and the man became a living

being.

8

And the Lord God planted a garden in

Eden, in the east; and there he put the man

whom he had formed.

9

Out of the ground the

Lord God made to grow every tree that is

pleasant to the sight and good for food, the

tree of life also in the midst of the garden,

and the tree of the knowledge of good and

evil.

15

The Lord God took the man and put

him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep

it.

16

And the Lord God commanded the man,

‘You may freely eat of every tree of the

garden;

17

but of the tree of the knowledge of

good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day

that you eat of it you shall die.’

18

Then the

Lord God said, ‘It is not good that the man

should be alone; I will make him a helper as

his partner.’

19

So out of the ground the Lord

God formed every animal of the field and

every bird of the air, and brought them to the

man to see what he would call them; and

whatever the man called each living creature,

that was its name.

20

The man gave names to

all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to

every animal of the field; but for the man

there was not found a helper as his partner.

21

So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall

upon the man, and he slept; then he took one

of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh.

22

And the rib that the Lord God had taken

from the man he made into a woman and

brought her to the man.

23

Then the man said,

‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of

my flesh; this one shall be called Woman, for

out of Man this one was taken.’

24

Therefore a

man leaves his father and his mother and

clings to his wife, and they become one flesh.

25

And the man and his wife were both naked,

and were not ashamed.

2nd Reading: Revelation 4

4 After this I looked, and there in heaven a
door stood open! And the first voice, which I
had heard speaking to me like a trumpet,
said, ‘Come up here, and I will show you
what must take place after this.’ 2 At once I
was in the spirit, and there in heaven stood a
throne, with one seated on the throne! 3 And
the one seated there looks like jasper and
cornelian, and around the throne is a rainbow
that looks like an emerald. 4 Around the
throne are twenty-four thrones, and seated on
the thrones are twenty-four elders, dressed in
white robes, with golden crowns on their
heads. 5 Coming from the throne are flashes
of lightning, and rumblings and peals of
thunder, and in front of the throne burn seven
flaming torches, which are the seven spirits
of God; 6 and in front of the throne there is
something like a sea of glass, like crystal.
Around the throne, and on each side of the
throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes
in front and behind: 7 the first living creature
like a lion, the second living creature like an
ox, the third living creature with a face like a
human face, and the fourth living creature
like a flying eagle. 8 And the four living
creatures, each of them with six wings, are
full of eyes all around and inside. Day and
night without ceasing they sing, ‘Holy, holy,
holy, the Lord God the Almighty, who was
and is and is to come.’ 9 And whenever the
living creatures give glory and honour and
thanks to the one who is seated on the throne,
who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four
elders fall before the one who is seated on
the throne and worship the one who lives for
ever and ever; they cast their crowns before
the throne, singing, 11 ‘You are worthy, our
Lord and God, to receive glory and honour
and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.’
Gospel: Luke 8:22-25
