Reading 1, First Samuel 16:1-13 Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 89:20, 21-22, 27-28 Gospel, Mark 2:23-28
Reading 1, First Samuel 16:1-13
1 Yahweh said to Samuel, 'How much longer do you mean to go on mourning over Saul, now that I myself have rejected him as ruler of Israel? Fill your horn with oil and go. I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem, for I have found myself a king from among his sons.'
3 Invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I shall reveal to you what you must do; and you will anoint for me the one I indicate to you.'
4 Samuel did what Yahweh ordered and went to Bethlehem. The elders of the town came trembling to meet him and asked, 'Seer, is your coming favourable for us,'
5 'Yes,' he replied. 'I have come to sacrifice to Yahweh. Purify yourselves and come with me to the sacrifice.' He purified Jesse and his sons and invited them to the sacrifice.
6 When they arrived, he looked at Eliab and thought, 'This must be Yahweh's anointed now before him,'
8 Jesse then called Abinadab and presented him to Samuel, who said, 'Yahweh has not chosen this one either.'
9 Jesse then presented Shammah, but Samuel said, 'Yahweh has not chosen this one either.'
10 Jesse thus presented seven of his sons to Samuel, but Samuel said to Jesse, 'Yahweh has not chosen these.'
11 He then asked Jesse, 'Are these all the sons you have?' Jesse replied, 'There is still one left, the youngest; he is looking after the sheep.' Samuel then said to Jesse, 'Send for him, for we shall not sit down to eat until he arrives.'
12 Jesse had him sent for; he had ruddy cheeks, with fine eyes and an attractive appearance. Yahweh said, 'Get up and anoint him: he is the one!'
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 89:20, 21-22, 27-28
20 'I have found David my servant, and anointed him with my holy oil.
27 So I shall make him my first-born, the highest of earthly kings.
28 'I shall maintain my faithful love for him always, my covenant with him will stay firm.
Gospel, Mark 2:23-28
23 It happened that one Sabbath day he was taking a walk through the cornfields, and his disciples began to make a path by plucking ears of corn.
25 And he replied, 'Have you never read what David did in his time of need when he and his followers were hungry-
28 so the Son of man is master even of the Sabbath.'
