Vespers 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.

Matthew 10 : 34 - 42

Chapter 10

34"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
35For I have come to "set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law';
36and "a man's enemies will be those of his own household.'
37He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
38And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.
39He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.
40"He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.
41He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
42And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward."

And Glory be to God forever.
