Fifth Sunday after Epiphany




Adorate Deum. Psalm 97
All ye angels of God, fall down, and worship before him: Sion heard, and was exceeding joyful, and the daughters of Judah were glad. The Lord is King, the earth may be glad thereof: yea, the multitude of the isles may be glad thereof. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen. All ye angels of God . . .


O Lord, we beseech thee to keep thy Church and household continually in thy true religion; that they who do lean only upon the hope of thy heavenly grace may evermore be defended by thy mighty power; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Colossians 3:12-17
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.


[Psalm 102] The heathen shall fear thy Name, O Lord: and all the kings of the earth thy majesty. When the Lord shall build up Sion: and when his glory shall appear.


Alleluia, alleluia. [Psalm 97] The Lord is King, the earth may be glad thereof: yea, the multitude of the isles may be glad thereof. Alleluia.


St. Matthew 13:24–30
At that time; Jesus spake this parable unto the multitudes: The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.


[Psalm 118] The right hand of the Lord hath the pre-eminence, the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass: I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.


[St. Luke 4] All wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth.
