Deuteronomy 3 : 23 – 7 : 11

Moses Pleads to Enter

23  “I pleaded with Adonai at that time, saying,
24 ‘O Lord Adonai, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand—for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do deeds and mighty acts like Yours?
25 Please! Let me cross over and see the good land across the Jordan—that good hill country and the Lebanon.’
26 “But Adonai was angry with me because of you, so He would not listen to me. ‘Enough!’ Adonai said to me, ‘Do not speak to Me anymore about this matter.
27 Go up to the top of Pisgah, look around to the west and the north and the south and the east, and see with your eyes—for you will not cross over this Jordan.
28 But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will cross over before this people, and he will enable them to inherit the land that you will see.’
29 So we stayed in the valley opposite Beth-peor.

Bnei-Yisrael Must Listen and Obey

1 “Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and ordinances that I am teaching you to do, so that you may live and go in and possess the land that Adonai the God of your fathers is giving you.
2 You must not add to the word that I am commanding you or take away from it—in order to keep the mitzvot of Adonai your God that I am commanding you.
3 Your eyes have seen what Adonai did at Baal Peor, for Adonai your God has destroyed from among you everyone who followed Baal Peor.

4 But you who held tight to Adonai your God are alive today—all of you.
5 “See, just as Adonai my God commanded me, I have taught you statutes and ordinances to do in the land that you are about to enter to possess.
6 You must keep and do them, for it is your wisdom and understanding in the eyes of the peoples, who will hear all these statutes and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’

  Isaiah 40:1–26

Comfort, Proclaim Good News

1 “Comfort, comfort My people,” says your God.
2 Speak kindly to the heart of Jerusalem and proclaim to her that her warfare has ended, that her iniquity has been removed. For she has received from Adonai’s hand double for all her sins.
3 A voice cries out in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of Adonai, Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley will be lifted up, every mountain and hill made low, the rough ground will be a plain and the rugged terrain smooth.
5 The glory of Adonai will be revealed, and all flesh will see it together.” For the mouth of Adonai has spoken.
6 A voice is saying, “Cry out!” So I said, “What shall I cry out?” “All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades. For the breath of Adonai blows on it. Surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades. But the word of our God stands forever.”
9 Get yourself up on a high mountain, you who bring good news to Zion! Lift up your voice with strength, you who bring good news to Jerusalem! Lift it up! Do not fear! Say to the cities of Judah: “Behold your God!”
10 Look, Adonai Elohim comes with might, with His arm ruling for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.
11 Like a shepherd, He tends His flock. He gathers the lambs in His arms carries them in his bosom, and gently guides nursing ewes.

Prophet

Brit Chadashah Brit Chadashah Reading

Luke 3:2-15

 During the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came upon John, the son of Zechariah, in the wilderness. And he came into all the surrounding region of the Jordan, proclaiming an immersion of repentance for the removal of sins. As it is written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet,

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way of Adonai,
and make His paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled up
    and every mountain and hill brought low.
The crooked shall be made straight
    and the rough ways made smooth,
and all humanity shall see the salvation of God.’”[a]

Therefore John was saying to the crowds that came out to be immersed by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Therefore produce fruits worthy of repentance; and don’t even begin to say among yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father’! For I tell you that from these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. Even now the axe is laid at the root of the trees, so every tree that does not produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire!”

10 The crowds were asking him, “What should we do?”

11 He answered them, saying, “Whoever has two coats, let him give to the one who has none; and whoever has food, let him do the same.”[b]

12 Tax collectors also came to him to be immersed. “Teacher,” they said to him, “what should we do?”

13 He said to them, “Do not take more than you are supposed to.”

14 Also soldiers asked him, saying, “And what should we do?”

He said to them, “Do not take things from anyone by force, do not falsely accuse anyone, and be content with your wages.”[c]

15 Now the people were filled with expectation, and all were wondering in their hearts about John, whether he might be the Messiah.
