Mass readings in Scots: Twentieth Sunday of the Year (Year C)
Hebrews 12: 1-4
Tharfor we that haue sa gret a cloude of witnessis put to, do we away al charge, and synn standing about vs, and be pacience rin we to the batale purposit to vs, behalding into the makare of faith, and the perfite endare, Jesu; quhilk quhen ioy was purposit to him, he suffrit the croce, and contempnit confusioun, and sittis on the richthalf of the sete of God. And bethink ye on him that suffrit sic aganesaying of synfulmen aganes him self, that ye be nocht made irkit, failyeing in your saulis. For ye aganestand nocht yit til to blude, fechting aganes synn.
[From The New Testament in Scots Murdoch Nisbet [c.1520] (1903) vol 2 here]
Luke 12: 49-53
[Jesus said to his discipilis:] "I com to send fire into erde; and quhat will I, bot that it be kendlit? And I haue to be baptizit with a baptyme; and how am I constrenyeit till that it be perfitlie done?
"Ween ye that I com to geue pece in to erde? Nay, I say to you, bot departing: for fra this tyme thare salbe five departit in aan hous, thre salbe departit aganes twa, and ij salbe departit aganes thre. The fader aganes the sonn, and the sonn aganes the fader; the modere aganes the douchter, and the douchter aganes the modere; the housbandis modere aganes the sonnis wif, and the sonnis wif aganes the housbandis moder."
[From The New Testament in Scots Murdoch Nisbet [c.1520] (1901) vol 1 here]
