Friday of Quasimodo Geniti (Easter 2)


First Reading: Ex. 31:1-18


 1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 2See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:

 3And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

 4To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

 5And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship.

 6And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee;

 7The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle,

 8And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense,

 9And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot,

 10And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office,

 11And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.

 12And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 13Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you.

 14Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

 15Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

 16Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

 17It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.

 18And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.



Second Reading: Lk. 6:1-19


 1And it came to pass on the second sabbath after the first, that he went through the corn fields; and his disciples plucked the ears of corn, and did eat, rubbing them in their hands.

 2And certain of the Pharisees said unto them, Why do ye that which is not lawful to do on the sabbath days?

 3And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;

 4How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?

 5And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

 6And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.

 7And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.

 8But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.

 9Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?

 10And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

 11And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

 12And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

 13And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;

 14Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,

 15Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,

 16And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.

 17And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;

 18And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.

 19And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
