FOURTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year B

First Reading: Ezekiel 2:2-5

A reading from the book of the prophet Ezekiel.

Then the voice of God said to me: “Mere Mortal, stand on your feet that I may speak with you!” And as God spoke to me the Spirit entered me and set me on my feet, and I heard the voice speaking to me, saying: “Mere Mortal, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious people who have rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have transgressed against me to this very day. The ones to whom I am sending you are stubborn and obstinate children, and you will say to them, ‘Thus says the Most High God.’ As for them, whether they listen or not – for they are a rebellious house – they will know that a prophet has been among them.”

The Word of God recorded in the book of the prophet Ezekiel.

FOURTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year B

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 123

R: So our eyes are on You, O God.

 

To You have I lifted up my eyes,

         You who dwell in the heavens.

Behold, like the eyes of slaves

         ate on the hand of their master.

 

R: So our eyes are on You, O God.

 

Like the eyes of servants

         on the hand of their mistress.

So our eyes ate on You, O God,

         till You show us Your mercy.

 

R: So our eyes are on You, O God.

 

Have mercy on us, O God!  Have mercy!

         We have endured  much contempt.

Indeed, all too full is our soul

         with scorn from the rich,

         with scorn from the proud.

 

R: So our eyes are on You, O God.
