  • First Reading: Exodus 20:1-17

    1 And the Lord spoke all these words:
    2 I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
    3 Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.
    4 Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth.
    5 Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me:
    6 And shewing mercy unto thousands to them that love me, and keep my commandments.
    7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that shall take the name of the Lord his God in vain.
    8 Remember that thou keep holy the sabbath day.
    9 Six days shalt thou labour, and shalt do all thy works.
    10 But on the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work on it, thou nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy beast, nor the stranger that is within thy gates.
    11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them, and rested on the seventh day: therefore the Lord blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it.
    12 Honour thy father and thy mother, that thou mayest be longlived upon the land which the Lord thy God will give thee.
    13 Thou shalt not kill.
    14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
    15 Thou shalt not steal.
    16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
    17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour' s house: neither shalt thou desire his wife, nor his servant, nor his handmaid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his.

  • Psalm: Psalms 19:8,9,10,11

    8 The law of the Lord is unspotted, converting souls: the testimony of the Lord is faithful, giving wisdom to little ones.
    9 The justices of the Lord are right, rejoicing hearts: the commandment of the Lord is lightsome, enlightening the eyes.
    10 The fear of the Lord is holy, enduring for ever and ever: the judgments of the Lord are true, justified in themselves.
    11 More to be desired than gold and many precious stones: and sweeter than honey and the honeycomb.

  • Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:22-25

    22 For both the Jews require signs, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
    23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness:
    24 But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
    25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

  • Gospel: John 2:13-25

    13 And the pasch of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
    14 And he found in the temple them that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting.
    15 And when he had made, as it were, a scourge of little cords, he drove them all out of the temple, the sheep also and the oxen, and the money of the changers he poured out, and the tables he overthrew.
    16 And to them that sold doves he said: Take these things hence, and make not the house of my Father a house of traffic.
    17 And his disciples remembered, that it was written: The zeal of thy house hath eaten me up.
    18 The Jews, therefore, answered, and said to him: What sign dost thou shew unto us, seeing thou dost these things?
    19 Jesus answered, and said to them: Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
    20 The Jews then said: Six and forty years was this temple in building; and wilt thou raise it up in three days?
    21 But he spoke of the temple of his body.
    22 When therefore he was risen again from the dead, his disciples remembered, that he had said this, and they believed the scripture, and the word that Jesus had said.
    23 Now when he was at Jerusalem, at the pasch, upon the festival day, many believed in his name, seeing his signs which he did.
    24 But Jesus did not trust himself unto them, for that he knew all men,
    25 And because he needed not that any should give testimony of man: for he knew what was in man.
