Daily Gospel Reading for July 8, 2022 – Friday in the Fourteenth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 8th of July, 2022 is Friday in the Fourteenth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2022 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: HOS 14:1-9

The first reading from the Book of Hosea.

Israel, return to Yahweh your God; for you have fallen because of your sin.

Take words with you, and return to Yahweh. Tell him, “Forgive all our sins, and accept that which is good; so we offer bulls as we vowed of our lips.

Assyria can’t save us. We won’t ride on horses; neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, ‘Our gods!’ for in you the fatherless finds mercy.”

“I will heal their waywardness. I will love them freely; for my anger is turned away from them.

I will be like the dew to Israel. He will blossom like the lily, and send down his roots like Lebanon.

His branches will spread, and his beauty will be like the olive tree, and his fragrance like Lebanon.

Men will dwell in his shade. They will revive like the grain, and blossom like the vine. Their fragrance will be like the wine of Lebanon.

Ephraim, what have I to do any more with idols? I answer, and will take care of him. I am like a green cypress tree; from me your fruit is found.”

Who is wise, that he may understand these things? Who is prudent, that he may know them? For the ways of Yahweh are right, and the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.

Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me.

Don’t throw me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.

Gospel of the Day: MT 10:16-23

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

“Behold, I send you out as sheep among wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils, and in their synagogues they will scourge you.

Yes, and you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the nations.

But when they deliver you up, don’t be anxious how or what you will say, for it will be given you in that hour what you will say.

For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.”

“Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child. Children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.

You will be hated by all men for my name’s sake, but he who endures to the end will be saved.

But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next, for most certainly I tell you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man has come.”
