2 Peter 3:12-15, 17-18
- 12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire!
- 13 But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
- 14 Therefore, beloved, since you wait for these, be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.
- 15 And count the forbearance of our Lord as salvation. So also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,
- 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, beware lest you be carried away with the error of lawless men and lose your own stability.
- 18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
Psalms 90(89):2-4, 10, 14, 16
Response: In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
- 2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting thou art God. R
- 3 Thou turnest man back to the dust, and sayest, "Turn back, O children of men!"
- 4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. R
- 10 The years of our life are threescore and ten, or even by reason of strength fourscore; yet their span is but toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away. R
- 14 Satisfy us in the morning with thy steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
- 16 Let thy work be manifest to thy servants, and thy glorious power to their children. R

- 15 Should we pay them, or should we not?" But knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, "Why put me to the test? Bring me a coin, and let me look at it."
- 16 And they brought one. And he said to them, "Whose likeness and inscription is this?" They said to him, "Caesar's."
- 17 Jesus said to them, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were amazed at him.
