Letter to the Romans 7:18-25a. 

For I know that good does not dwell in me, that is, in my flesh. The willing is ready at hand, but doing the good is not. 
For I do not do the good I want, but I do the evil I do not want. 
Now if (I) do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 
So, then, I discover the principle that when I want to do right, evil is at hand. 
For I take delight in the law of God, in my inner self, 
but I see in my members another principle at war with the law of my mind, taking me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 
Miserable one that I am! Who will deliver me from this mortal body? 
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore, I myself, with my mind, serve the law of God but, with my flesh, the law of sin. 

Psalms 119(118): 

Teach me wisdom and knowledge, for in your commands I trust. 
You are good and do what is good; teach me your laws. 
May your love comfort me in accord with your promise to your servant. 
Show me compassion that I may live, for your teaching is my delight. 

I will never forget your precepts; through them you give me life. 
I am yours; save me, for I cherish your precepts. 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 12:54-59. 

He also said to the crowds, "When you see (a) cloud rising in the west you say immediately that it is going to rain--and so it does; 
and when you notice that the wind is blowing from the south you say that it is going to be hot--and so it is. 
You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky; why do you not know how to interpret the present time? 
Why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? 
If you are to go with your opponent before a magistrate, make an effort to settle the matter on the way; otherwise your opponent will turn you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the constable, and the constable throw you into prison. 
I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last penny."
