  • First Reading: Micah 2:1-5

    1 Woe to you that devise that which is unprofitable, and work evil in your beds: in the morning light they execute it, because their hand is against God.
    2 And they have coveted fields, and taken them by violence, and houses they have forcibly taken away: and oppressed a man and his house, a man and his inheritance.
    3 Therefore thus saith the Lord: Behold, I devise an evil against this family: from which you shall not withdraw your necks, and you shall not walk haughtily, for this is a very evil time.
    4 In that day a parable shall be taken up upon you, and a song shall be sung with melody by them that say: We are laid waste and spoiled: the portion of my people is changed: how shall he depart from me, whereas he is returning that will divide our land?
    5 Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast the cord of a lot in the assembly of the Lord.

  • Psalm: Psalms 10:1-2, 3-4, 7-8, 14

    1 The psalm of David which he sung to the Lord for the words of Chusi the son of Jemini.
    2 O Lord my God, in thee have I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me.
    3 Lest at any time he seize upon my soul like a lion, while there is no one to redeem me, nor to save.
    4 O Lord my God, if I have done this thing, if there be iniquity in my hands
    7 Rise up, O Lord, in thy anger: and be thou exalted in the borders of my enemies. And arise, O Lord my God, in the precept which thou hast commanded:
    8 And a congregation of people shall surround thee. And for their sakes return thou on high.
    14 And in it he hath prepared the instruments of death, he hath made ready his arrows for them that burn.

  • Gospel: Matthew 12:14-21

    14 And the Pharisees going out made a consultation against him, how they might destroy him.
    15 But Jesus knowing it, retired from thence: and many followed him, and he healed them all.
    16 And he charged them that they should not make him known.
    17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaias the prophet, saying:
    18 Behold my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved in whom my soul hath been well pleased. I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
    19 He shall not contend, nor cry out, neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
    20 The bruised reed he shall not break: and smoking flax he shall not extinguish: till he send forth judgment unto victory.
    21 And in his name the Gentiles shall hope.
