  • First Reading: 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8

    1 For yourselves know, brethren, our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:
    2 But having suffered many things before, and been shamefully treated (as you know) at Philippi, we had confidence in our God, to speak unto you the gospel of God in much carefulness.
    3 For our exhortation was not of error, nor of uncleanness, nor in deceit:
    4 But as we were approved by God that the gospel should be committed to us: even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God, who proveth our hearts.
    5 For neither have we used, at any time, the speech of flattery, as you know; nor taken an occasion of covetousness, God is witness:
    6 Nor sought we glory of men, neither of you, nor of others.
    7 Whereas we might have been burdensome to you, as the apostles of Christ: but we became little ones in the midst of you, as if a nurse should cherish her children:
    8 So desirous of you, we would gladly impart unto you not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls: because you were become most dear unto us.

  • Psalm: Psalms 139:1-3, 4-6

    1 Lord, thou hast proved me, and known me:
    2 Thou hast know my sitting down, and my rising up.
    3 Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: my path and my line thou hast searched out.
    4 And thou hast foreseen all my ways: for there is no speech in my tongue.
    5 Behold, O Lord, thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon me.
    6 Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me: it is high, and I cannot reach to it.

  • Gospel: Matthew 23:23-26

    23 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you tithe mint, and anise, and cummin, and have left the weightier things of the law; judgment, and mercy, and faith. These things you ought to have done, and not to leave those undone.
    24 Blind guides, who strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel.
    25 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you make clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but within you are full of rapine and uncleanness.
    26 Thou blind Pharisee, first make clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, that the outside may become clean.
