Mass readings in Scots: Fourteenth Sunday of the Year (Year B)

Gospel reading
Mark 6: 1-6

Ande he yede out fra thine, and went into his awne cuntre; and his discipilis followit. And quhen the sabot was cummin, Jesus began to teche in a synagog. And mony herd, and wonndrit in his teching, and said, "Quhar fra to this all thir thingis? and quhat is the wisdome that is gevin to him, and sic virtues quhilkis ar made be his handis? Quhethir is nocht this a carpentare, the sonn of Marie, the bruthir of James, and Josephe, and of Judas, and of Symoun? Quhethir gif his sisteris ar nocht here with vs?" And thai war sclaundrit in him. And Jesus said to thame, "That a prophet is nocht without honour, bot in his awn cuntre, and amang his kynn, and in his hous." And he mycht nocht do thare ony virtue, bot that he helit a few seekmen laying on thaim his handis. And he wonndrit for the vnbeleue of thame.
