Ordinary Time 14th week Tuesday Cycle II All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Hosea 8:4-7,11-13

Thus says the Lord:

They have set up kings, but not with my consent,
and appointed princes, but without my knowledge.
Out of their own silver and gold they have made idols,
which are doomed to destruction.
I spurn your calf, Samaria; 
my anger blazes against it.
(How long will it be before they purge themselves of this,
the sons of Israel?)
A workman made the thing; 
this cannot be God!
Yes, the calf of Samaria shall go up in flames.
They sow the wind, they will reap the whirlwind;
their wheat will yield no ear, 
the ear will yield no flour,
or, if it does, foreigners will swallow it.

Ephraim has built altar after altar,
they have only served him as occasion for sin.
Were I to write out the thousand precepts of my Law for him,
they would be paid no more attention than those of a stranger.
They love sacrificing; right, let them sacrifice!
They love meat; right, let them eat it!
The Lord takes no pleasure in these.
He is now going to remember their iniquity 
and punish their sins;
they will have to go back to Egypt.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 113B(115):3-10

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord.

Our God, he is in the heavens;
  he does whatever he wills.
The idols of the heathen are silver and gold,
  the work of human hands.

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord.

They have mouths but they cannot speak;
  they have eyes but they cannot see;
they have ears but they cannot hear;
  they have nostrils but they cannot smell.

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord.

With their hands they cannot feel;
  with their feet they cannot walk.
Their makers will come to be like them
  and so will all who trust in them.

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord.

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord;
  he is their help and their shield.
Sons of Aaron, trust in the Lord;
  he is their help and their shield.

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord.
