Daily Gospel Reading for July 30, 2022 – Saturday in the Seventeenth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 30th of July, 2022 is Saturday in the Seventeenth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2022 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: JER 26:11-16, 24

The first reading from the Book of Jeremiah.

Then the priests and the prophets spoke to the princes and to all the people, saying, “This man is worthy of death, for he has prophesied against this city, as you have heard with your ears.”

Then Jeremiah spoke to all the princes and to all the people, saying, “Yahweh sent me to prophesy against this house and against this city all the words that you have heard.

Now therefore amend your ways and your doings, and obey Yahweh your God’s voice; then Yahweh will relent from the evil that he has pronounced against you.

But as for me, behold, I am in your hand. Do with me what is good and right in your eyes.

Only know for certain that if you put me to death, you will bring innocent blood on yourselves, on this city, and on its inhabitants; for in truth Yahweh has sent me to you to speak all these words in your ears.”

Then the princes and all the people said to the priests and to the prophets: “This man is not worthy of death; for he has spoken to us in the name of Yahweh our God.”

But the hand of Ahikam the son of Shaphan was with Jeremiah, so that they didn’t give him into the hand of the people to put him to death.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 69:14-15, 29-30, 32-33

Response: God, in the abundance of your loving kindness, answer me in the truth of your salvation.

Deliver me out of the mire, and don’t let me sink. Let me be delivered from those who hate me, and out of the deep waters.

Don’t let the flood waters overwhelm me, neither let the deep swallow me up. Don’t let the pit shut its mouth on me.

R: God, in the abundance of your loving kindness, answer me in the truth of your salvation.

But I am in pain and distress. Let your salvation, God, protect me.

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

R: God, in the abundance of your loving kindness, answer me in the truth of your salvation.

The humble have seen it, and are glad. You who seek after God, let your heart live.

For Yahweh hears the needy, and doesn’t despise his captive people.

R: God, in the abundance of your loving kindness, answer me in the truth of your salvation.

Gospel of the Day: MT 14:1-12

From the gospel verse according to Matthew.

At that time, Herod the tetrarch heard the report concerning Jesus, and said to his servants, “This is John the Baptizer. He is risen from the dead. That is why these powers work in him.”

For Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife.

For John said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.”

When he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

But when Herod’s birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced among them and pleased Herod.

Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she should ask.

She, being prompted by her mother, said, “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptizer.”

The king was grieved, but for the sake of his oaths and of those who sat at the table with him, he commanded it to be given, and he sent and beheaded John in the prison.

His head was brought on a platter and given to the young lady; and she brought it to her mother.

His disciples came, took the body, and buried it. Then they went and told Jesus.

An optional celebration on this day is the Memorial of Saint Peter Chrysologus, Bishop and Doctor of the Church.
