  • First Reading: 2 Samuel 24:2, 9-17

    2 And the king said to Joab the general of his army: Go through all the tribes of Israel from Dan to Bersabee, and number ye the people that I may know the number of them.
    9 And Joab gave up the sum of the number of the people to the king, and there were found of Israel eight hundred thousand valiant men that drew the sword: and of Juda five hundred thousand fighting men.
    10 But David' s heart struck him, after the people were numbered: and David said to the Lord: I have sinned very much in what I have done: but I pray thee, O Lord, to take away the iniquity of thy servant, because I have done exceeding foolishly.
    11 And David arose in the morning, and the word of the Lord came to Gad the prophet and the seer of David, saying:
    12 Go, and say to David: Thus saith the Lord: I give thee thy choice of three things, choose one of them which thou wilt, that I may do it to thee.
    13 And when Gad was come to David, he told him, saying: Either seven years of famine shall come to thee in thy land: or thou shalt flee three months before thy adversaries, and they shall pursue thee: or for three days there shall be a pestilence in thy land. Now therefore deliberate, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.
    14 And David said to Gad: I am in a great strait: but it is better that I should fall into the hands of the Lord (for his mercies are many) than into the hands of men.
    15 And the Lord sent a pestilence upon Israel, from the morning unto the time appointed, and there died of the people from Dan to Bersabee seventy thousand men.
    16 And when the angel of the Lord had stretched out his hand over Jerusalem to destroy it, the Lord had pity on the affliction, and said to the angel that slew the people: It is enough: now hold thy hand. And the angel of the Lord was by the threshingfloor of Areuna the Jebusite.
    17 And David said to the Lord, when he saw the angel striking the people: It is I; I am he that have sinned, I have done wickedly: these that are the sheep, what have they done? let thy hand, I beseech thee, be turned against me, and against my father' s house.

  • Psalm: Psalms 32:1-2, 5, 6, 7

    1 A psalm for David. Rejoice in the Lord, O ye just: praise becometh the upright.
    2 Give praise to the Lord on the harp; sing to him with the psaltery, the instrument of ten strings.
    5 He loveth mercy and judgment; the earth is full of the mercy of the Lord.
    6 By the word of the Lord the heavens were established; and all the power of them by the spirit of his mouth:
    7 Gathering together the waters of the sea, as in a vessel; laying up the depths in storehouses.

  • Gospel: Mark 6:1-6

    1 And going out from thence, he went into his own country; and his disciples followed him.
    2 And when the sabbath was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were in admiration at his doctrine, saying: How came this man by all these things? and what wisdom is this that is given to him, and such mighty works as are wrought by his hands?
    3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joseph, and Jude, and Simon? are not also his sisters here with us? And they were scandalized in regard of him.
    4 And Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honor, but in his own country, and in his own house, and among his own kindred.
    5 And he could not do any miracles there, only that he cured a few that were sick, laying his hands upon them.
    6 And he wondered because of their unbelief, and he went through the villages round about teaching.
