    1O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory. 2The LORD has made known his victory, he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations. 3He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God. 4Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;break forth into joyous song and sing praises! 5Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! 6With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Luke 11:47-54

    47Woe to you! for you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. 48So you are witnesses and consent to the deeds of your fathers;for they killed them, and you build their tombs. 49Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, `I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' 50that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, 51from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation. 52Woe to you lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge;you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering." 53As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard, and to provoke him to speak of many things, 54lying in wait for him, to catch at something he might say.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    lk 11:47-54

    The Lord said:
    “Woe to you who build the memorials of the prophets
    whom your fathers killed.
    Consequently, you bear witness and give consent
    to the deeds of your ancestors,
    for they killed them and you do the building.
    Therefore, the wisdom of God said,
    ‘I will send to them prophets and Apostles;
    some of them they will kill and persecute’
    in order that this generation might be charged
    with the blood of all the prophets
    shed since the foundation of the world,
    from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah
    who died between the altar and the temple building.
    Yes, I tell you, this generation will be charged with their blood!
    Woe to you, scholars of the law!
    You have taken away the key of knowledge.
    You yourselves did not enter and you stopped those trying to enter.”
    When Jesus left, the scribes and Pharisees
    began to act with hostility toward him
    and to interrogate him about many things,
    for they were plotting to catch him at something he might say.
