Second reading
1 Thessalonians 3:12-4:2

And the Lord multiplie you, and mak your charitee to be plenteouse of ilk to vthir, and into almen, as alsa we in you; that your hartis be confermit without playnt in halynes, before God and our fadere, in the cummyng of our Lord Jesu Crist with all his Sanctis. Amen.

Tharfor, brether, hyne forwart we pray you, and beseke in the Lord Jesu, that as ye haue resauet of vs, how it behuvis you to ga and to plese God, sa walk ye, that ye abonnd the maire. For ye wat quhat comandmentis I haue gevin to you be the Lord Jesu.

[From The New Testament in Scots Murdoch Nisbet [c.1520] (1903) vol 2 here]

Gospel reading
Luke 21: 25-28, 34-36

[Jesus said to his discipilis:] "And taknis salbe in the sonn and moone, and in the sternis; and in erde the ouirlaying of folkis, for confusioun of the sound of the see and of fludes: for men sal wax dry for dreed and abiding that sal cum to al the warld; for the virtues of heuenis salbe mouet. And than thai sal se mannis sonn cumming in a cloude, with gret power and maiestee. Ande quhen thir thingis begynnis to be made, behald ye, and raise ye your hedis; for your redemptioun neres.

"Bot tak ye hede to your self, or perauentur your hart be grevit with glotony, and drunkinnes, and besynes of this lif, and that ilk day cum sodanlie on you. For as a girn it sal cum on almen that sittis on the face of all erde. Tharfore walk ye, prayand in al tyme, that ye be had worthi to flee al thir thingis that ar to cum, and to stand before mannis sonn."

[From The New Testament in Scots Murdoch Nisbet [c.1520] (1901) vol 1 here]
