Psalm 119:73–80 (CSB)

י‎ Yod

73 Your hands made me and formed me; 

give me understanding 

so that I can learn your commands. 

74 Those who fear you will see me and rejoice, 

for I put my hope in your word. 

75 I know, Lord, that your judgments are just 

and that you have afflicted me fairly. 

76 May your faithful love comfort me 

as you promised your servant. 

77 May your compassion come to me 

so that I may live, 

for your instruction is my delight. 

78 Let the arrogant be put to shame 

for slandering me with lies; 

I will meditate on your precepts. 

79 Let those who fear you, 

those who know your decrees, turn to me. 

80 May my heart be blameless regarding your statutes 

so that I will not be put to shame.

Proverbs 23:26–30 (CSB)

26 My son, give me your heart, 

and let your eyes observe my ways. 

27 For a prostitute is a deep pit, 

and a wayward woman is a narrow well; 

28 indeed, she sets an ambush like a robber 

and increases the number of unfaithful people. 

29 Who has woe? Who has sorrow? 

Who has conflicts? Who has complaints? 

Who has wounds for no reason? 

Who has red eyes? 

30 Those who linger over wine; 

those who go looking for mixed wine.

John 20:1–23 (CSB)


Peter the Disciple at the Empty Tomb
Peter the Disciple at the Empty Tomb

20 On the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark. She saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she went running to Simon Peter and to the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said to them, “They’ve taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they’ve put him!” 

At that, Peter and the other disciple went out, heading for the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and got to the tomb first. Stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. Then, following him, Simon Peter also came. He entered the tomb and saw the linen cloths lying there. The wrapping that had been on his head was not lying with the linen cloths but was folded up in a separate place by itself. The other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, then also went in, saw, and believed. For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he must rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples returned to the place where they were staying. 


11 But Mary stood outside the tomb, crying. As she was crying, she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 She saw two angels in white sitting where Jesus’s body had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you crying?” 

“Because they’ve taken away my Lord,” she told them, “and I don’t know where they’ve put him.” 

14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know it was Jesus. 15 “Woman,” Jesus said to her, “why are you crying? Who is it that you’re seeking?” 

Supposing he was the gardener, she replied, “Sir, if you’ve carried him away, tell me where you’ve put him, and I will take him away.” 

16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” 

Turning around, she said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!”—which means “Teacher.” 

17 “Don’t cling to me,” Jesus told her, “since I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them that I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.” 

18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them what he had said to her. 


19 When it was evening on that first day of the week, the disciples were gathered together with the doors locked because they feared the Jews. Jesus came, stood among them, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

20 Having said this, he showed them his hands and his side. So the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 

21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, I also send you.” 22 After saying this, he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”
