Mass readings in Scots: Thirteenth Sunday of the Year (Year C)
Luke 9: 51-62
And it was done, quhen the dais of his taking vp war fulfillit, [Jesus] settit fast his face to ga to Jerusalem, and send messingers befor his sicht: and thai yede, and entrit in to a citee of Samaritanis, to mak reddy to him. And thai resauet nocht him, for the face of him was gaing into Jerusalem. And quhen James and Johnne his discipilis saw, thai said, "Lord, will thou that we say that fire cum doun fra heuen, and waast thame?" And he turnit, and blamyt thame [...] And thai went into ane vthir castelle.
And it was done, quhen thai walkit in the way, a man said to him, "I sal follou thee quhare euir thou ga." And Jesus said to him, "Foxis has dennis, and briddis of the aire has nestis; bot mannis sonn has nocht quhare he rest his hede."
And he said to ane vthir, "Follou thou me." And he said, "Lord, suffir me first to ga and beryse my
fader." And Jesus said to him, "Suffir that deidmen berise thare deidmen: bot ga thou and tell the kingdom of God."
And ane vthir said, "Lord, I sal follow thee; bot first suffir me for to leue al thingis that ar at hame." And Jesus said to him, "Na man that puttis his hand to the pleuche, and behaldand bakwart, is abile to the realmme of God."
