Daily Gospel Reading for January 31, 2021 – Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 31st of January, 2021 is the Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: DT 18:15-20

The first reading from the Book of Deuteronomy.

Yahweh your God will raise up to you a prophet from among you, of your brothers, like me. You shall listen to him.

This is according to all that you desired of Yahweh your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, “Let me not hear again Yahweh my God’s voice, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I not die.”

Yahweh said to me, “They have well said that which they have spoken.

I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you. I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.

It shall happen, that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 95:1-2, 6-7ABC, 7D-9

Response: Don’t harden your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness.

Oh come, let’s sing to Yahweh. Let’s shout aloud to the rock of our salvation!

Let’s come before his presence with thanksgiving. Let’s extol him with songs!

R: Don’t harden your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness.

Oh come, let’s worship and bow down. Let’s kneel before Yahweh, our Maker, for he is our God. We are the people of his pasture, and the sheep in his care.

R: Don’t harden your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness.

Today, oh that you would hear his voice!

Don’t harden your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness, when your fathers tempted me, tested me, and saw my work.

R: Don’t harden your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness.

Reading 2: 1 COR 7:32-35

The second reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians.

But I desire to have you to be free from cares. He who is unmarried is concerned for the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord; but he who is married is concerned about the things of the world, how he may please his wife.

There is also a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world-how she may please her husband.

This I say for your own benefit, not that I may ensnare you, but for that which is appropriate, and that you may attend to the Lord without distraction.

Gospel of the Day: MK 1:21-28

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath day he entered into the synagogue and taught.

They were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes.

Immediately there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, saying, “Ha! What do we have to do with you, Jesus, you Nazarene? Have you come to destroy us? I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!”

Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”

The unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.

They were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? A new teaching? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him!”

The report of him went out immediately everywhere into all the region of Galilee and its surrounding area.
