Reading 1, Second Kings 11:1-4, 9-18, 20
1 All the tribes of Israel then came to David at Hebron and said, 'Look, we are your own flesh and bone.
3 So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and King David made a pact with them in Yahweh's presence at Hebron, and they anointed David as king of Israel.
4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned for forty years.
6 The king and his men then marched on Jerusalem, on the Jebusites living in the territory. These said to David, 'You will not get in here. The blind and the lame will hold you off.' (That is to say: David will never get in here.)
7 But David captured the citadel of Zion, that is, the City of David.
10 David grew stronger and stronger, and Yahweh, God of Sabaoth, was with him.
20 All the people of the country were delighted; the city, however, made no move. And Athaliah was put to death inside the palace.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 89:20, 21-22, 25-26
20 'I have found David my servant, and anointed him with my holy oil.
25 I shall establish his power over the sea, his dominion over the rivers.
26 'He will cry to me, "You are my father, my God, the rock of my salvation!"
Gospel, Mark 3:22-30
23 So he called them to him and spoke to them in parables,
24 'How can Satan drive out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot last.
25 And if a household is divided against itself, that household can never last.
26 Now if Satan has rebelled against himself and is divided, he cannot last either -- it is the end of him.
27 But no one can make his way into a strong man's house and plunder his property unless he has first tied up the strong man. Only then can he plunder his house.
30 This was because they were saying, 'There is an unclean spirit in him.'
