Mass readings in Scots: Twenty-third Sunday of the Year (Year A)

Gospel reading
Matthew 18: 15-20

[Jesus said until his disciples:] "Mairowre, gif thy brither do aucht agayne thee, gae an’ tell him his faut atween him an’ thee alane; gif he sall hear thee, thou hast gainet thy brither. But gif he winna hear thee, syne tak’ wi’ thee ane or twa mair, that in the mouth o’ twa or three witnesses ilka word may be sickerly made to stan’ guid. An’ gif he sall neglec’ to hear them, tell it til the kirk: but gif he neglec’ to hear the kirk, let him be until thee as a heathen man an’ a publican.

"Verily I say unto you, whatsaever ye sall bin’ on yirth sall be bund in heaven; an’ whatsaever ye sall lowse on yirth sall be lowset in heaven.

"Again I say until you, That gif twa o’ you sall agree on yirth as touchin’ ony thing that they sall ask, it sall be dune for them o’ my Father wha is in heaven. For whare twa or three are gather’t thegither in my name, there am I in the middle o’ them."
