Genesis  12: 1- 9

1:1 In the beginning, God created heaven and earth.

1:2 But the earth was empty and unoccupied, and darknesses were over the face of the abyss; and so the Spirit of God was brought over the waters.

1:3 And God said, “Let there be light.” And light became.

1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and so he divided the light from the darknesses.

1:5 And he called the light, ‘Day,’ and the darknesses, ‘Night.’ And it became evening and morning, one day.

1:6 God also said, “Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide waters from waters.”

1:7 And God made a firmament, and he divided the waters that were under the firmament, from those that were above the firmament. And so it became.

1:8 And God called the firmament ‘Heaven.’ And it became evening and morning, the second day.

1:9 Truly God said: “Let the waters that are under heaven be gathered together into one place; and let the dry land appear.” And so it became.

Gospel

The Holy Gospel According to Matthew    7: 1-5

7:1 “Do not judge, so that you may not be judged.
7:2 For with whatever judgment you judge, so shall you be judged; and with whatever measure you measure out, so shall it be measured back to you.
7:3 And how can you see the splinter in your brother’s eye, and not see the board in your own eye?
7:4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the splinter from your eye,’ while, behold, a board is in your own eye?
7:5 Hypocrite, first remove the board from your own eye, and then you will see clearly enough to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.
