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

Gospel reading
Mark 7: 31-37

And again, gaun forth oot o’ the pairts o’ Tyre, he cam throwe Sidon to the Loch o’ Galilee, up throwe the pairts o’ the Ten Cities. And they bring to him ane that can hear nane, and speak but a wee; and they beg that he wad lay his haun on him. And he led him aside frae the throng, and pat his fingers intil his lugs, and touched his tongue wi’ spittle; and lookin up to heeven, he
gied a sigh, and said, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be thou unbarred!” And his lugs war unsteekit,
and the string o’ his tongue was lowsed, and he spak plain. And he instruckit them that they soud tell nane: but accordin as he instruckit them, sae muckle the mair did they tell o’t: and they were astonish’t ayont a’ bounds, sayin, “He has done a’ things weel! He gars e’en the deif to hear, and the dumb to speak!”
[From The New Testament in Braid Scots William Wye Smith (1904) here]
