Daily Gospel Reading for January 12, 2023 – Thursday in the First Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 12th of January, 2023 is Thursday in the First Week of Ordinary Time. The Holy Bible verses for the mass readings for this day came from the Liturgical Calendar Year 2023.

Reading 1: HEB 3:7-14

The first reading from The Letter to the Hebrews.

Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says, “Today if you will hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of the trial in the wilderness, where your fathers tested me and tried me, and saw my deeds for forty years.

Therefore I was displeased with that generation, and said, ‘They always err in their heart, but they didn’t know my ways.’

As I swore in my wrath, ‘They will not enter into my rest.’_”

Beware, brothers, lest perhaps there might be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God; but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called “today”, lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence firm to the end.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 95:6-7C, 8-9, 10-11

Response: 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.

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.

Forty long years I was grieved with that generation, and said, “They are a people who err in their heart. They have not known my ways.”

Therefore I swore in my wrath, “They won’t enter into my rest.”

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

Gospel of the Day: MK 1:40-45

From the gospel scripture according to Mark.

A leper came to him, begging him, kneeling down to him, and saying to him, “If you want to, you can make me clean.”

Being moved with compassion, he stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said to him, “I want to. Be made clean.”

When he had said this, immediately the leprosy departed from him and he was made clean.

He strictly warned him and immediately sent him out, and said to him, “See that you say nothing to anybody, but go show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing the things which Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.”

But he went out, and began to proclaim it much, and to spread about the matter, so that Jesus could no more openly enter into a city, but was outside in desert places. People came to him from everywhere.
