Friday of Quinquagesima


First Reading: Gen. 2:4-25


 4These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens,

 5And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

 6But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.

 7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

 8And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

 9And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

 10And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.

 11The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

 12And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

 13And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

 14And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.

 15And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

 16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

 17But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

 18And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

 19And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 20And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

 21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

 22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

 23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

 24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.



Second Reading: Mk. 1:29-45


 29And forthwith, when they were come out of the synagogue, they entered into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.

 30But Simon's wife's mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.

 31And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

 32And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.

 33And all the city was gathered together at the door.

 34And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.

 35And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.

 36And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.

 37And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee.

 38And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.

 39And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.

 40And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

 41And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

 42And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

 43And he straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away;

 44And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

 45But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.
