Mass readings in Scots: Twenty-sixth Sunday of the Year (Year A)
[Jesus said untill the chief priests an' the elders o' the peeple,] "But what think ye? Ane certain man had twa sons; an’ he cam’ til the first, an’ said, 'Son, gae wurk the day in my vinyaird.' He answiret an’ said, 'I wullna': but efterwaird he ruet, an’ gaed. An’ he cam’ til the second, an’ said likewaise. An’ he answiret an’ said, 'I gae, sir': an’ gaedna. Whuther o’ them twayne did the wull o’ his faether?" They say untill him, "The first." Jesus saith untill them, "Verilie I say untill yow, that the publikins an’ harlotes gae intill the kingdoom o’ God afore yow. For John cam’ untill yow in the waye o’ richtiousniss, an’ ye beleivet him nat: but the publikins an’ harlotes beleivet him; an’ ye, whan ye had seen it, repentetna efter wairds, that ye micht beleive him."
