    7 And let that temple of God be built by the governor of the Jews, and by their ancients, that they may build that house of God in its place.
    8 I also have commanded what must be done by those ancients of the Jews, that the house of God may be built, to wit, that of the king's chest, that is, of the tribute that is paid out of the country beyond the river, the charges be diligently given to those men, lest the work be hindered.
    12 b I Darius have made the decree, which I will have diligently complied with.
    14 And the ancients of the Jews built and prospered according to the prophecy of Aggeus the prophet, and of Zacharias the son of Addo: and they built and finished, by the commandment of the God of Israel, and by the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes kings of the Persians.
    15 And they were finishing this house of God, until the third day of the month of Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of king Darius.
    16 And the children of Israel, the priests and the Levites, and the rest of the children of the captivity kept the dedication of the house of God with joy.
    17 And they offered at the dedication of the house of God, a, hundred calves, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs, and for a sin offering for all Israel twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel.
    18 And they set the priests in their divisions, and the Levites in their courses over the works of God in Jerusalem, as it is written in the book of Moses.
    19 And the children of Israel of the captivity kept the phase, on the fourteenth day of the first month.
    20 For all the priests and the Levites were purified as one man: all were clear to kill the phase for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and themselves.

  • Psalm: Psalms 122:1-2, 3-4ab, 4cd-5

    1 I rejoiced at the things that were said to me: We shall go into the house of the Lord.
    2 Our feet were standing in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
    3 Jerusalem, which is built as a city, which is compact together.
    4 ab For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord:
    4 cd The testimony of Israel, to praise the name of the Lord.
    5 Because their seats have sat in judgment, seats upon the house of David.

  • Gospel: Luke 8:19-21

    19 And his mother and brethren came unto him; and they could not come at him for the crowd.
    20 And it was told him: Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee.
    21 Who answering, said to them: My mother and my brethren are they who hear the word of God, and do it.
