Daily Gospel Reading for February 12, 2021 – Friday in the Fifth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 12th of February, 2021 is Friday in the Fifth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2021 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: GN 3:1-8

The first reading from the Book of Genesis.

Now the serpent was more subtle than any animal of the field which Yahweh God had made. He said to the woman, “Has God really said, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees of the garden, but not the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden. God has said, ‘You shall not eat of it. You shall not touch it, lest you die.’_”

The serpent said to the woman, “You won’t really die, for God knows that in the day you eat it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took some of its fruit, and ate. Then she gave some to her husband with her, and he ate it, too.

Their eyes were opened, and they both knew that they were naked. They sewed fig leaves together, and made coverings for themselves.

They heard Yahweh God’s voice walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 32:1-2, 5, 6, 7

Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man to whom Yahweh doesn’t impute iniquity, in whose spirit there is no deceit.

R: Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven.

I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn’t hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

R: Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven.

For this, let everyone who is godly pray to you in a time when you may be found. Surely when the great waters overflow, they shall not reach to him.

R: Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven.

You are my hiding place. You will preserve me from trouble. You will surround me with songs of deliverance.

R: Blessed is he whose disobedience is forgiven.

Gospel of the Day: MK 7:31-37

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

Again Jesus departed from the borders of Tyre and Sidon, and came to the sea of Galilee through the middle of the region of Decapolis.

They brought to him one who was deaf and had an impediment in his speech. They begged him to lay his hand on him.

He took him aside from the multitude privately and put his fingers into his ears; and he spat and touched his tongue.

Looking up to heaven, he sighed, and said to him, “Ephphatha!” that is, “Be opened!”

Immediately his ears were opened, and the impediment of his tongue was released, and he spoke clearly.

He commanded them that they should tell no one, but the more he commanded them, so much the more widely they proclaimed it.

They were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well. He makes even the deaf hear and the mute speak!”
