Ordinary Time 13th week Wednesday Cycle II All Pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Amos 5:14-15,21-24

Seek good and not evil 
so that you may live,
and that the Lord, God of Hosts, may really be with you, 
as you claim he is.

Hate evil, love good,
maintain justice at the city gate,
and it may be that the Lord, God of Hosts, will take pity
on the remnant of Joseph.

I hate and despise your feasts,
I take no pleasure in your solemn festivals.
When you offer me holocausts,
I reject your oblations,
and refuse to look at your sacrifices of fattened cattle.

Let me have no more of the din of your chanting,
no more of your strumming on harps.
But let justice flow like water,
and integrity like an unfailing stream.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 49(50):7-13,16-17

I will show God’s salvation to the upright.

‘Listen, my people, I will speak;
  Israel, I will testify against you,
for I am God, your God.
  I accuse you, lay the charge before you.

I will show God’s salvation to the upright.

‘I find no fault with your sacrifices,
  your offerings are always before me.
I do not ask more bullocks from your farms,
  nor goats from among your herds.

I will show God’s salvation to the upright.

‘I own all the beasts of the forest,
  beasts in their thousands on my hills.
I know all the birds in the sky,
  all that moves in the field belongs to me.

I will show God’s salvation to the upright.

‘Were I hungry, I would not tell you,
  for I own the world and all it holds.
Do you think I eat the flesh of bulls,
  or drink the blood of goats?

I will show God’s salvation to the upright.

‘How can you recite my commandments
  and take my covenant on your lips,
you who despise my law
  and throw my words to the winds?’

I will show God’s salvation to the upright.
