Monday of Quasimodo Geniti (Easter 2)

First Reading: Ex. 22:20-23:13

 20"(A)He who sacrifices to any god, other than to the LORD alone, shall be utterly destroyed.

 21"(B)You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

 22"(C)You shall not afflict any widow or orphan.

 23"If you afflict him at all, and (D)if he does cry out to Me, (E)I will surely hear his cry;

 24and My anger will be kindled, and I will kill you with the sword, (F)and your wives shall become widows and your children fatherless.

 25"(G)If you lend money to My people, to the poor among you, you are not to act as a creditor to him; you shall not charge him (H)interest.

 26"If you ever take your neighbor's cloak (I)as a pledge, you are to return it to him before the sun sets,

 27for that is his only covering; it is his cloak for his body. What else shall he sleep in? And it shall come about that (J)when he cries out to Me, I will hear him, for (K)I am gracious.

 28"You shall not (L)curse God, (M)nor curse a ruler of your people.

 29"(N)You shall not delay the offering from your harvest and your vintage (O)The firstborn of your sons you shall give to Me.

 30"(P)You shall do the same with your oxen and with your sheep It shall be with its mother seven days; (Q)on the eighth day you shall give it to Me.

 31"(R)You shall be holy men to Me, therefore (S)you shall not eat any flesh torn to pieces in the field; you shall throw it to the dogs.

Sundry Laws
 1"(T)You shall not bear a false report; do not join your hand with a wicked man to be a (U)malicious witness.

 2"You shall not follow the masses in doing evil, nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after a multitude in order to (V)pervert justice;

 3(W)nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his dispute.

 4"(X)If you meet your enemy's ox or his donkey wandering away, you shall surely return it to him.

 5"(Y)If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying helpless under its load, you shall refrain from leaving it to him, you shall surely release it with him.

 6"(Z)You shall not pervert the justice due to your needy brother in his dispute.

 7"(AA)Keep far from a false charge, and (AB)do not kill the innocent or the righteous, for (AC)I will not acquit the guilty.

 8"(AD)You shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of the just.

 9"(AE)You shall not oppress a stranger, since you yourselves know the feelings of a stranger, for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt.

The Sabbath and Land
 10"(AF)You shall sow your land for six years and gather in its yield,

 11but on the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the needy of your people may eat; and whatever they leave the beast of the field may eat. You are to do the same with your vineyard and your olive grove.

 12"(AG)Six days you are to do your work, but on the seventh day you shall cease from labor so that your ox and your donkey may rest, and the son of your female slave, as well as your stranger, may refresh themselves.

 13"Now (AH)concerning everything which I have said to you, be on your guard; and (AI)do not mention the name of other gods, nor let them be heard from your mouth.

Second Reading: Lk. 4:16-30

 16And He came to (A)Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, (B)He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and (C)stood up to read.

 17And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,

 20And He (F)closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and (G)sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him.

 21And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."

 22And all were speaking well of Him, and wondering at the gracious words which were falling from His lips; and they were saying, "(H)Is this not Joseph's son?"

 23And He said to them, "No doubt you will quote this proverb to Me, 'Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we heard was done (I)at Capernaum, do here in (J)your hometown as well.'"

 24And He said, "Truly I say to you, (K)no prophet is welcome in his hometown.

 25"But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel (L)in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land;

 26and yet Elijah was sent to none of them, but (M)only to Zarephath, in the land of (N)Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.

 27"And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, but (O)only Naaman the Syrian."

 28And all the people in the synagogue were filled with rage as they heard these things;

 29and they got up and (P)drove Him out of the city, and led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city had been built, in order to throw Him down the cliff.

 30But (Q)passing through their midst, He went His way.
