  • First Reading: Isaiah 50:4-9a

    4 The Lord hath given me a learned tongue, that I should know how to uphold by word him that is weary: he wakeneth in the morning, in the morning he wakeneth my ear, that I may hear him as a master.
    5 The Lord God hath opened my ear, and I do not resist: I have not gone back.
    6 I have given my body to the strikers, and my cheeks to them that plucked them: I have not turned away my face from them that rebuked me, and spit upon me.
    7 The Lord God is my helper, therefore am I not confounded: therefore have I set my face as a most hard rock, and I know that I shall not be confounded.
    8 He is near that justifieth me, who will contend with me? let us stand together, who is my adversary? let him come near to me.
    9 a Behold the Lord God is my helper: who is he that shall condemn me? 

  • Psalm: Psalms 69:8-10, 21-22, 31 and 33-34

    8 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
    9 I am become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to the sons of my mother.
    10 For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up: and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

    21 In thy sight are all they that afflict me; my heart hath expected reproach and misery. And I looked for one that would grieve together with me, but there was none: and for one that would comfort me, and I found none.
    22 And they gave me gall for my food, and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

    31 I will praise the name of God with a canticle: and I will magnify him with praise.
    33 Let the poor see and rejoice: seek ye God, and your soul shall live.
    34 For the Lord hath heard the poor: and hath not despised his prisoners.

  • Gospel: Matthew 26:14-25

    14 Then went one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, to the chief priests,
    15 And said to them: What will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you? But they appointed him thirty pieces of silver.
    16 And from thenceforth he sought opportunity to betray him.
    17 And on the first day of the Azymes, the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the pasch?
    18 But Jesus said: Go ye into the city to a certain man, and say to him: the master saith, My time is near at hand, with thee I make the pasch with my disciples.
    19 And the disciples did as Jesus appointed to them, and they prepared the pasch.
    20 But when it was evening, he sat down with his twelve disciples.
    21 And whilst they were eating, he said: Amen I say to you, that one of you is about to betray me.
    22 And they being very much troubled, began every one to say: Is it I, Lord?
    23 But he answering, said: He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, he shall betray me.
    24 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man shall be betrayed: it were better for him, if that man had not been born.
    25 And Judas that betrayed him, answering, said: Is it I, Rabbi? He saith to him: Thou hast said it.
