FIRST READING Isaiah 5:1-7 The Song of the Unfruitful Vineyard

1. Let me sing for my beloved my love-song concerning his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill. 2. He dug it and cleared it of stones, and planted it with choice vines; he built a watchtower in the midst of it, and hewed out a wine vat in it; he expected it to yield grapes, but it yielded wild grapes. 3. And now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. 4. What more was there to do for my vineyard that I have not done in it? When I expected it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes?  5. And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down. 6. I will make it a waste; it shall not be pruned or hoed, and it shall be overgrown with briers and thorns; I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.   7. For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the people of Judah are his pleasant planting; he expected justice, but saw bloodshed; righteousness, but heard a cry!

 

GOSPEL READING Luke 12:49-56

49. “I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50. I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! 51. Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! 52. From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; 53. they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

54. He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, “It is going to rain’; and so it happens. 55. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, “There will be scorching heat’; and it happens.  56. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
