Psalms 17:1-1

    17:1 Hear a just cause, O LORD, Attend to my cry; Give ear to my prayer which is not from deceitful lips.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Our Lord God, Savior, and King of us all, Jesus Christ, the Living Son of God to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Gospel

Stand in the fear of God and listen to the Holy Gospel. A reading from the Gospel according to our teacher Saint Matthew, the Evangelist. May His Blessings be with us all. Amen.

Matthew 21:28-32

    21:28 "But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, "Son, go, work today in my vineyard.' 29 He answered and said, "I will not,' but afterward he regretted it and went. 30 Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, "I go, sir,' but he did not go. 31 Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said to Him, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you. 32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him; but tax collectors and harlots believed him; and when you saw it, you did not afterward relent and believe him.

And Glory be to God forever.
