Mass readings in Scots: Fourth Sunday of the Year (Year B)
Mark 1: 21-28
And they cam intil Capernaum; and withoot delay, on the Sabbath day, he cam intil the kirk, and was teachin. And they war uncolie struck wi’ astonishment at his teachin; for he spak as gin he had authoritie, and no like the Scribes.
And noo, thar was i’ the kirk a man wi’ a foul spirit; and he cry’t oot, sayin, “What hae we wi’ thee, thou Jesus o’ Nazareth? Hast thou come to destroy us? I ken thee, wha thou art — God's Holie Ane!” And Jesus forbad him, say in, “ Haud yere peace! and come oot o’ him!” And the foul spirit, rivin, and cryin’ wi’ a great voice, cam oot o’ him. And they war a' astoundit; sae that they coonsell’t amang theirsels, “What is a’ this ? A new teachin! Like a Ruler he commauns e’en the foul spirits, and they do his wull!” And the fame o’ him spread abreid at ance ower a’ the hail kintraside o' Galilee roond aboot.
