Daily Gospel Reading for January 30, 2022 – Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 30th of January, 2022 is the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2022 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: JER 1:4-5, 17-19

The first reading from the Book of Jeremiah.

Now Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”

“You therefore put your belt on your waist, arise, and say to them all that I command you. Don’t be dismayed at them, lest I dismay you before them.

For behold, I have made you today a fortified city, an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land-against the kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land.

They will fight against you, but they will not prevail against you; for I am with you”, says Yahweh, “to rescue you.”

Responsorial Psalm: PS 71:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 15-17

Response: My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day.

In you, Yahweh, I take refuge. Never let me be disappointed.

Deliver me in your righteousness, and rescue me. Turn your ear to me, and save me.

R: My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day.

Be to me a rock of refuge to which I may always go. Give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

Rescue me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

R: My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day.

For you are my hope, Lord Yahweh, my confidence from my youth.

I have relied on you from the womb. You are he who took me out of my mother’s womb. I will always praise you.

R: My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day.

My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day, though I don’t know its full measure.

I will come with the mighty acts of the Lord Yahweh. I will make mention of your righteousness, even of yours alone.

God, you have taught me from my youth. Until now, I have declared your wondrous works.

R: My mouth will tell about your righteousness, and of your salvation all day.

Reading 2: 1 COR 12:31-13:13 or 1 COR 13:4-13

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

But earnestly desire the best gifts. Moreover, I show a most excellent way to you.

If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing.

If I give away all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.

Love is patient and is kind. Love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when that which is complete has come, then that which is partial will be done away with.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away childish things.

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, even as I was also fully known.

But now faith, hope, and love remain-these three. The greatest of these is love.

Gospel of the Day: LK 4:21-30

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

He began to tell them, “Today, this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

All testified about him and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth; and they said, “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?”

He said to them, “Doubtless you will tell me this proverb, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done at Capernaum, do also here in your hometown.’_”

He said, “Most certainly I tell you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown.

But truly I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land.

Elijah was sent to none of them, except to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.

There were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed, except Naaman, the Syrian.”

They were all filled with wrath in the synagogue as they heard these things.

They rose up, threw him out of the city, and led him to the brow of the hill that their city was built on, that they might throw him off the cliff.

But he, passing through the middle of them, went his way.
