Reading 1 and// EX 40:16-21, 34-38 Moses did exactly as the LORD had commanded him.On the first day of the first month of the second yearthe Dwelling was erected.It was Moses who erected the Dwelling.He placed its pedestals, set up its boards, put in its bars,and set up its columns.He spread the tent over the Dwellingand put the covering on top of the tent,as the LORD had commanded him.He took the commandments and put them in the arkhe placed poles alongside the ark and set the propitiatory upon it.He brought the ark into the Dwelling and hung the curtain veil,thus screening off the ark of the commandments,as the LORD had commanded him.Then the cloud covered the meeting tent,and the glory of the LORD filled the Dwelling.Moses could not enter the meeting tent,because the cloud settled down upon itand the glory of the LORD filled the Dwelling.Whenever the cloud rose from the Dwelling,the children of Israel would set out on their journey.But if the cloud did not lift, they would not go forwardonly when it lifted did they go forward.In the daytime the cloud of the LORD was seen over the Dwellingwhereas at night, fire was seen in the cloudby the whole house of Israelin all the stages of their journey.

Gospel and// MT 13:47-53 Jesus said to the disciplesand The Kingdom of heaven is like a net thrown into the sea,which collects fish of every kind.When it is full they haul it ashoreand sit down to put what is good into buckets.What is bad they throw away.Thus it will be at the end of the age.The angels will go out and separate the wicked from the righteousand throw them into the fiery furnace,where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.” Do you understand all these things?”They answered, Yes.”And he replied, Then every scribe who has been instructed in the Kingdom of heavenis like the head of a household who brings from his storeroomboth the new and the old.”When Jesus finished these parables, he went away from there.
