Selected Lectionary Readings:

Isaiah 5:1-7

5:1 Let me sing for my beloved my love-song concerning his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill. 5:2 He dug it and cleared it of stones, and planted it with choice vines; he built a watchtower in the midst of it, and hewed out a wine vat in it; he expected it to yield grapes, but it yielded wild grapes. 5:3 And now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. 5:4 What more was there to do for my vineyard that I have not done in it? When I expected it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes? 5:5 And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down. 5:6 I will make it a waste; it shall not be pruned or hoed, and it shall be overgrown with briers and thorns; I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. 5:7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the people of Judah are his pleasant planting; he expected justice, but saw bloodshed; righteousness, but heard a cry!

Psalm 80:1-2, 8-19

80:1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock! You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth 80:2 before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh. Stir up your might, and come to save us! 80:8 You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. 80:9 You cleared the ground for it; it took deep root and filled the land. 80:10 The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches; 80:11 it sent out its branches to the sea, and its shoots to the River. 80:12 Why then have you broken down its walls, so that all who pass along the way pluck its fruit? 80:13 The boar from the forest ravages it, and all that move in the field feed on it. 80:14 Turn again, O God of hosts; look down from heaven, and see; have regard for this vine, 80:15 the stock that your right hand planted. 80:16 They have burned it with fire, they have cut it down; may they perish at the rebuke of your countenance. 80:17 But let your hand be upon the one at your right hand, the one whom you made strong for yourself. 80:18 Then we will never turn back from you; give us life, and we will call on your name. 80:19 Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved

Luke 12:49-56

12:49 "I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 12:50 I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! 12:51 Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! 12:52 From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; 12:53 they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." 12:54 He also said to the crowds, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, 'It is going to rain'; and so it happens. 12:55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, 'There will be scorching heat'; and it happens. 12:56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
