Mass readings in Scots: Fifteenth Sunday of the Year (Year C)


Gospel reading
Luke 10: 25-37

And, lo, a wiseman of the law raase vp, temptand him, and sayand, "Maistire, quhat thing sal I do to haue euirlasting lif?" And he said to him, "Quhat is writtin in the law? how redis thou?" He ansuerd and saide, "Thou sal luf thi Lorde God of al thi hart, and of al thi saule, and of al thi strenthe, and of al thi mynd; and thi nechbour as thi self." And Jesus said to him, "Thou has ansuerde richtlie: do this thing, and thou sal leeue."

Bot he, willand to iustifie him self, said to Jesu, "And quha is my nechbour?" And Jesus beheld and said, "A man com doun fra Jerusalem into Jerico, and fell amang theues, and thai rubbit him, and wonndit him, and went away, and left the man half on lif. And it befell that a prest com doun the sammin way, and past furth quhen he had seen him. Alsa a deken, quhen he was beside the place and saw him, passit furthe. Bot a Samaritan, gangand be the way, com beside him: and he saw him, and had reuth on him. And com to him, and band to giddire his wonndis, and held in oile and wyne, and laid him on his beest, and ledde into ane ostrie, and did the cure of him. And ane vthir day he broucht furth twa pennyis, and gave to the ostlare, and said, 'Haue the cure of him; and quhat euir thou sal geue atoure, I sal yeld to thee quhen I cum agane.' Quha of thir thre, semes to thee, was nechbour to him that fell amang theeues?" And he said, "He that did mercy in to him. And Jesus said to him, Ga thou, and do thou on like maner."
