    Ordinary Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    2 Kgs 22:8-13;23:1-3

    The high priest Hilkiah informed the scribe Shaphan,
    "I have found the book of the law in the temple of the LORD."
    Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, who read it.
    Then the scribe Shaphan went to the king and reported,
    "Your servants have smelted down the metals available in the temple
    and have consigned them to the master workmen
    in the temple of the LORD."
    The scribe Shaphan also informed the king
    that the priest Hilkiah had given him a book,
    and then read it aloud to the king.
    When the king heard the contents of the book of the law,
    he tore his garments and issued this command to Hilkiah the priest,
    Ahikam, son of Shaphan,
    Achbor, son of Micaiah, the scribe Shaphan,
    and the king's servant Asaiah:
    "Go, consult the LORD for me, for the people, for all Judah,
    about the stipulations of this book that has been found,
    for the anger of the LORD has been set furiously ablaze against us,
    because our fathers did not obey the stipulations of this book,
    nor fulfill our written obligations."

    The king then had all the elders of Judah
    and of Jerusalem summoned together before him.
    The king went up to the temple of the LORD with all the men of Judah
    and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem:
    priests, prophets, and all the people, small and great.
    He had the entire contents of the book of the covenant
    that had been found in the temple of the LORD, read out to them.
    Standing by the column, the king made a covenant before the LORD
    that they would follow him
    and observe his ordinances, statutes and decrees
    with their whole hearts and souls,
    thus reviving the terms of the covenant
    which were written in this book.
    And all the people stood as participants in the covenant.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 119:33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40

    R. (33a) Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
    Instruct me, O LORD, in the way of your statutes,
    that I may exactly observe them.
    R. Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
    Give me discernment, that I may observe your law
    and keep it with all my heart.
    R. Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
    Lead me in the path of your commands,
    for in it I delight.
    R. Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
    Incline my heart to your decrees
    and not to gain.
    R. Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
    Turn away my eyes from seeing what is vain:
    by your way give me life.
    R. Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.
    Behold, I long for your precepts;
    in your justice give me life.
    R. Teach me the way of your decrees, O Lord.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Mt 7:15-20

    Jesus said to his disciples:
    "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing,
    but underneath are ravenous wolves.
    By their fruits you will know them.
    Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
    Just so, every good tree bears good fruit,
    and a rotten tree bears bad fruit.
    A good tree cannot bear bad fruit,
    nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit.
    Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down
    and thrown into the fire.
    So by their fruits you will know them."
