First Reading

1 Chronicles 25:1a,6-8

David and the officers of the army also set apart for the service the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with lyres, harps, and cymbals. They were all under the direction of their father for the music in the house of the LORD with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the order of the king. They and their kindred, who were trained in singing to the LORD, all of whom were skillful, numbered two hundred eighty-eight. And they cast lots for their duties, small and great, teacher and pupil alike.

Psalm 57:6-11 Miserere mei, Deus

6
Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
and your glory over all the earth.

7
My heart is firmly fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; *
I will sing and make melody.

8
Wake up, my spirit;
awake, lute and harp; *
I myself will waken the dawn.

9
I will confess you among the peoples, O LORD; *
I will sing praise to you among the nations.

10
For your loving-kindness is greater than the heavens, *
and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

11
Exalt yourself above the heavens, O God, *
and your glory over all the earth.

or

Psalm 33:1-5,20-21

Exultate, justi

1

Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous; *
it is good for the just to sing praises.

2
Praise the LORD with the harp; *
play to him upon the psaltery and lyre.

3
Sing for him a new song; *
sound a fanfare with all your skill upon the trumpet.

4
For the word of the LORD is right, *
and all his works are sure.

5
He loves righteousness and justice; *
the loving-kindness of the LORD fills the whole earth.

20
Our soul waits for the LORD; *
he is our help and our shield.

21
Indeed, our heart rejoices in him, *
for in his holy Name we put our trust.

Gospel

Mark 10:42-45

Jesus called his disciples and said to them, "You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many."
