Mass readings in Scots: Thirty-Second Sunday of the Year (Year C)

Gospel reading
Luke 20: 27-38

And thar cam to him a wheen o’ the Sadducees, wha say thar is nae Risin-again; and they speir’t at him, sayin, “Master! Moses pat doon for us: Gin aiblins a man’s brither soud dee, haein a wife, and he be bairn-less, that his brither, soud tak the wife, and raise up seed to his brither. Noo, thar war seeven brithers; and the first, takin a wife, dee’t bairn-less. And the second; and he dee’t bairnless. And the third had her; and, i’ the same way the seeven -they left nae bairn, and dee’t. And eftir, the wumman too dee’t. And sae, i’ the Risin again, whase wife o’ them sal she be? For the seven had her a wife.”

And Jesus said to them, “The bairns o’ this warld mairry, and are gien in mairriage; but they that are coontit wordie that warld to obteen, and the Risin-again frae the deid, naither mairry nor are gien in mairriage. Naither can they dee ony mair; for they are as the Angels; and are sons o’ God, bein sons o’ the Risin-again. But, that the deid are to be rais’t, e’en Moses schaws at The Buss, whan he ca’s Jehova[h], ‘The God o’ Abra’m, the God o’ Isaac, and the God o’ Jaucob.’ Noo, he isna the God o’ deid men, but o’ leevin; for to him are a' to leeve!”
