Tuesday of Quasimodo Geniti (Easter 2)


First Reading: Ex. 23:14-33


 14Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.

 15Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)

 16And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.

 17Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the LORD God.

 18Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the morning.

 19The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.

 20Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

 21Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

 22But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

 23For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.

 24Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images.

 25And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.

 26There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

 27I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.

 28And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.

 29I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.

 30By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.

 31And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand; and thou shalt drive them out before thee.

 32Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.

 33They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.



Second Reading: Lk. 4:31-44


 31And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days.

 32And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.

 33And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice,

 34Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God.

 35And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.

 36And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.

 37And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about.

 38And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.

 39And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.

 40Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.

 41And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

 42And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.

 43And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent.

 44And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.
