Scriptures-Genesis 50: 15-21 and Matthew 17: 1-7 from The Common English Bible
Genesis 50: 15-21
15 When Joseph's brothers realized that their father was now dead, they said, "What if Joseph bears a grudge against us, and wants to pay us back seriously for all of the terrible things we did to him?"
16 So they approached Joseph and said, "Your father gave orders before he died, telling us, 17 ‘This is what you should say to Joseph. 'Please, forgive your brothers' sins and misdeeds, for they did terrible things to you. Now, please forgive the sins of the servants of your father's God.’'' Joseph wept when they spoke to him.
18 His brothers wept too, fell down in front of him, and said, "We're here as your slaves." 19 But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid. Am I God?
20 You planned something bad for me, but God produced something good from it, in order to save the lives of many people, just as he's doing today.
21 Now, don't be afraid. I will take care of you and your children." So he put them at ease and spoke reassuringly to them.
Matthew 17: 1-7
1 Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them to the top of a very high mountain.
2 He was transformed in front of them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as light.
3 Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter reacted to all of this by saying to Jesus, "Lord, it's good that we're here. If you want, I'll make three shrines: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
5 While he was still speaking, look, a bright cloud overshadowed them. A voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son whom I dearly love. I am very pleased with him. Listen to him!"
6 Hearing this, the disciples fell on their faces, filled with awe.
7 But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid."
