Bible readings:

Psalm 34

1 I will always praise the LORD.
2 With all my heart, I will praise the LORD.
Let all who are helpless, listen and be glad.
3 Honour the LORD with me! Celebrate his great name.

4 I asked the LORD for help,
and he saved me from all my fears.
5 Keep your eyes on the LORD! You will shine like the sun
and never blush with shame.
6 I was a nobody, but I prayed,
and the LORD saved me from all my troubles.

7 If you honour the LORD, his angel will protect you.
8 Discover for yourself that the LORD is kind.
Come to him for protection, and you will be glad.

Job 42

1 Job said:
2 No one can oppose you, because you have the power
to do what you want.
3 You asked why I talk so much when I know so little.
I have talked about things
that are far beyond my understanding.
4 You told me to listen and answer your questions.
5 I heard about you from others;
now I have seen you with my own eyes.
6 That’s why I hate myself and sit here in dust and ashes
to show my sorrow.

Hebrews 7

23 There have been a lot of other priests, and all of them have died. 24 But Jesus will never die, and so he will be a priest forever! 25 He is forever able to save the people he leads to God, because he always lives to speak to God for them.
26 Jesus is the high priest we need. He is holy and innocent and faultless, and not at all like us sinners. Jesus is honoured above all beings in heaven, 27 and he is better than any other high priest. Jesus doesn’t need to offer sacrifices each day for his own sins and then for the sins of the people. He offered a sacrifice once for all, when he gave himself. 28 The Law appoints priests who have weaknesses. But God’s promise, which came later than the Law, appoints his Son. And he is the perfect high priest forever.

Mark 10

46 Jesus and his disciples went to Jericho. And as they were leaving, they were followed by a large crowd. A blind beggar by the name of Bartimaeus son of Timaeus was sitting beside the road. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus from Nazareth, he shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” 48 Many people told the man to stop, but he shouted even louder, “Son of David, have pity on me!”
49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him over!”
They called out to the blind man and said, “Don’t be afraid! Come on! He is calling for you.” 50 The man threw off his coat as he jumped up and ran to Jesus.
51 Jesus asked, “What do you want me to do for you?”
The blind man answered, “Master, I want to see!”
52 Jesus told him, “You may go. Your eyes are healed because of your faith.”
Right away the man could see, and he went down the road with Jesus.
