A reading from the First Book of Kings.Mark 8:1-10

In those days:
Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord
in the presence of all the assembly of Israel,
and spread forth his hands towards heaven;
and said: “O Lord, God of Israel, there is no God like you
in heaven above or on earth beneath,
keeping covenant and showing mercy to your servants
who walk before you with all their heart.Mark 8:1-10

“But will God indeed dwell on the earth?
Behold heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain you,
how much less this house which I have built!
Yet have regard to the prayer of your servant
and to his supplication,
O Lord my God, listening to the cry and to the prayer
which your servant prays before you this day;
that your eyes may be open night and day towards this house,
the place of which you have said,
‘My Name shall be there,’
that you may listen to the prayer
which your servant offers towards this place.
And listen to the supplication of your servant
and of your people Israel,
when they pray toward this place;
yes, hear in heaven, your dwelling place,
and when you hear, forgive.Mark 8:1-10

Mark 8:1-10
Gospel: Mark 7:1-13Mark 8:1-10

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark.Mark 8:1-10

At that time:
When the Pharisees gathered together to Jesus,
with some of the scribes, who had come from Jerusalem,
they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands defiled,
that is, unwashed.
(For the Pharisees, and all the Jews,
do not eat unless they wash their hands,
observing the tradition of the elders;
and when they come from the marketplace,
they do not eat unless they purify themselves;
and there are many other traditions which they observe,
the washing of cups and pots and vessels of bronze).
And the Pharisees and the scribes asked him,
“Why do your disciples not live
according to the tradition of the elders,
but eat with hands defiled?”Mark 8:1-10

And he said to them,
“Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites,
as it is written,
This people honours me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;
in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.
’ You leave the commandment of God,
and hold fast the tradition of men.”Mark 8:1-10

And he said to them,
“You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God,
in order to keep your tradition!
For Moses said, ‘Honour your father and your mother’;
and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother,
let him surely die’;
but you say, ‘If a man tells his father or his mother,
What you would have gained from me is Corban’
(that is, given to God)-
 then you no longer permit him
to do anything for his father or mother,
thus making void the word of God
through your tradition which you hand on.
And many such things you do.”Mark 8:1-10
