  • First Reading: Genesis 49:2, 8-10

    2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, O ye sons of Jacob, hearken to Israel your father
    8 Juda, thee shall thy brethren praise: thy hands shall be on the necks of thy enemies: the sons of thy father shall bow down to thee.
    9 Juda is a lion's whelp: to the prey, my son, thou art gone up: resting thou hast couched as a lion, and as a lioness, who shall rouse him?
    10 The sceptre shall not be taken away from Juda, nor a ruler from his thigh, till he come that is to be sent, and he shall be the expectation of nations.

  • Psalm: Psalms 72:1-2, 3-4ab, 7-8, 17

    2 Give to the king thy judgment, O God: and to the king's son thy justice: To judge thy people with justice, and thy poor with judgment.
    3 Let the mountains receive peace for the people: and the hills justice.
    4 He shall judge the poor of the people, and he shall save the children of the poor: and he shall humble the oppressor.
    7 In his days shall justice spring up, and abundance of peace, till the moon be taken sway.
    8 And he shall rule from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
    17 Let his name be blessed for evermore: his name continueth before the sun. And in him shall all the tribes of the earth be blessed: all nations shall magnify him.

  • Gospel: Matthew 1:1-17

    1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham:
    2 Abraham begot Isaac. And Isaac begot Jacob. And Jacob begot Judas and his brethren.
    3 And Judas begot Phares and Zara of Thamar. And Phares begot Esron. And Esron begot Aram.
    4 And Aram begot Aminadab. And Aminadab begot Naasson. And Naasson begot Salmon.
    5 And Salmon begot Booz of Rahab. And Booz begot Obed of Ruth. And Obed begot Jesse.
    6 And Jesse begot David the king. And David the king begot Solomon, of her that had been the wife of Urias.
    7 And Solomon begot Roboam. And Roboam begot Abia. And Abia begot Asa.
    8 And Asa begot Josaphat. And Josaphat begot Joram. And Joram begot Ozias.
    9 And Ozias begot Joatham. And Joatham begot Achaz. And Achaz begot Ezechias.
    10 And Ezechias begot Manasses. And Manasses begot Amon. And Amon begot Josias.
    11 And Josias begot Jechonias and his brethren in the transmigration of Babylon.
    12 And after the transmigration of Babylon, Jechonias begot Salathiel. And Salathiel begot Zorobabel.
    13 And Zorobabel begot Abiud. And Abiud begot Eliacim. And Eliacim begot Azor.
    14 And Azor begot Sadoc. And Sadoc begot Achim. And Achim begot Eliud.
    15 And Eliud begot Eleazar. And Eleazar begot Mathan. And Mathan begot Jacob.
    16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
    17 So all the generations, from Abraham to David, are fourteen generations. And from David to the transmigration of Babylon, are fourteen generations: and from the transmigration of Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.
