Hosea 11. 1-11

When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. The more I called them, the more they went from me; they kept sacrificing to the Baals,
and offering incense to idols.
Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, I took them up in my arms; but they did not know that I healed them. I led them with cords of human kindness, with bands of love. I was to them like those who lift infants to their cheeks. I bent down to them and fed them.
They shall return to the land of Egypt, and Assyria shall be their king, because they have refused to return to me. The sword rages in their cities, it consumes their oracle-priests, and devours because of their schemes. My people are bent on turning away from me. To the Most High they call, but he does not raise them up at all.
How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, O Israel? How can I make you like Admah? How can I treat you like Zeboiim? My heart recoils within me; my compassion grows warm and tender. I will not execute my fierce anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim; for I am God and no mortal, the Holy One in your midst, and I will not come in wrath.
They shall go after the LORD, who roars like a lion; when he roars, his children shall come trembling from the west. They shall come trembling like birds from Egypt, and like doves from the land of Assyria; and I will return them to their homes, says the LORD.

Psalm 107. 1-9, [43]

Biblical text

1-9
O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures for ever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, those he redeemed from trouble and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to an inhabited town; hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress; he led them by a straight way, until they reached an inhabited town. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind. For he satisfies the thirsty, and the hungry he fills with good things.

[43]
Let those who are wise give heed to these things, and consider the steadfast love of the LORD.

Psalm 107. 1-9, [43]

Pointed Psalm

1-9
O give thanks to the Lord, for / he is / gracious :
for his steadfast / love en/dures for / ever.
Let the redeemed of the / Lord / say this :
those he redeemed / from the / hand of the / enemy,
And gathered out of the lands from the east and / from the / west :
from the / north and / from the / south.
Some went astray in / desert / wastes :
and found no / path • to a / city to / dwell in.
Hungry / and / thirsty :
their / soul was / fainting with/in them.
So they cried to the Lord / in their / trouble :
and he delivered / them from / their dis/tress.
He set their feet on the / right / way :
till they / came • to a / city to / dwell in.
Let them give thanks to the Lord / for his / goodness :
and the / wonders he / does • for his / children.
For he satisfies the / longing / soul :
and fills the / hungry / soul with / good.
[43]
Whoever is wise will / ponder these / things :
and consider the loving/kindness / of the / Lord.

Colossians 3. 1-11

So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.
Put to death, therefore, whatever in you is earthly: fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed (which is idolatry). On account of these the wrath of God is coming on those who are disobedient. These are the ways you also once followed, when you were living that life. But now you must get rid of all such things – anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive language from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have stripped off the old self with its practices and have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator. In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all!

Luke 12. 13-21

Someone in the crowd said to him, ‘Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.’ But he said to him, ‘Friend, who set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?’ And he said to them, ‘Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.’ Then he told them a parable: ‘The land of a rich man produced abundantly. And he thought to himself, “What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?” Then he said, “I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.” But God said to him, “You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?” So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich towards God.’

Ecclesiastes 1. 2, 12-14; 2. 18-23

Vanity of vanities, says the Teacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
I, the Teacher, when king over Israel in Jerusalem, applied my mind to seek and to search out by wisdom all that is done under heaven; it is an unhappy business that God has given to human beings to be busy with. I saw all the deeds that are done under the sun; and see, all is vanity and a chasing after wind.
I hated all my toil in which I had toiled under the sun, seeing that I must leave it to those who come after me – and who knows whether they will be wise or foolish? Yet they will be master of all for which I toiled and used my wisdom under the sun. This also is vanity. So I turned and gave my heart up to despair concerning all the toil of my labours under the sun, because sometimes one who has toiled with wisdom and knowledge and skill must leave all to be enjoyed by another who did not toil for it. This also is vanity and a great evil. What do mortals get from all the toil and strain with which they toil under the sun? For all their days are full of pain, and their work is a vexation; even at night their minds do not rest. This also is vanity.

Psalm 49. 1-9, [10-12]

Biblical text

1-9
Hear this, all you peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world, both low and high, rich and poor together. My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding. I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will solve my riddle to the music of the harp.
Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of my persecutors surrounds me, those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches? Truly, no ransom avails for one’s life, there is no price one can give to God for it. For the ransom of life is costly, and can never suffice, that one should live on for ever and never see the grave.
[10-12]
When we look at the wise, they die; fool and dolt perish together and leave their wealth to others. Their graves are their homes for ever, their dwelling-places to all generations, though they named lands their own. Mortals cannot abide in their pomp;
they are like the animals that perish.

Psalm 49. 1-9, [10-12]

Pointed Psalm

1-9
Hear this, / all you / peoples :
listen, all / you that / dwell in the / world,
You of low or / high de/gree :
both / rich and / poor to/gether.
My mouth shall / speak of / wisdom :
and my heart shall / meditate on / under/standing.
I will incline my ear / to a / parable :
I will unfold my / riddle / with the / lyre.
Why should I fear in / evil / days :
when the / malice • of my / foes sur/rounds me,
Such as trust / in their / goods :
and glory in the a/bundance / of their / riches?
For no one can indeed / ransom an/other :
or pay to / God the / price of de/liverance.
To ransom a soul / is too / costly :
there is / no price / one could / pay for it,
So that they might / live for / ever :
and / never / see the / grave.
[10-12]
For we see that the wise die also;
with the foolish and / ignorant they / perish :
and / leave their / riches to / others.
Their tomb is their home for ever,
their dwelling through / all • gene/rations :
though they call their lands / after their / own / names.
Those who have honour, but lack / under/standing :
are / like the / beasts that / perish.
