The Lesson of the Epistle of the Holy Apostle Paul to Timothy.
I Timothy §285a (4:9-15).
My child Timothy: This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we labor and are reviled, because we hope in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, especially of the faithful. These things command and teach. Let no man despise thy youth: but be thou an example of the faithful in word, in conversation, in charity, in faith, in chastity. Till I come, attend unto reading, to exhortation, and to doctrine. Neglect not the grace that is in thee, which was given thee by prophesy, with imposition of the hands of the priesthood. Meditate upon these things, be wholly in these things: that thy profiting may be manifest to all.
Alleluia of the Tone.
The Lesson of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Luke.
Saint Luke §94 (19:1-10).
At that time: Jesus came unto Jericho. And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, who was the chief of the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was, and he could not for the crowd, because he was low of stature. And running before, he climbed up into a sycamore tree, that he might see him; for he was to pass that way. And when Jesus was come to the place, looking up, he saw him, and said to him: Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for this day I must abide in thine house. And he made haste and came down; and received him with joy. And when all saw it, they murmured, saying, that he was gone to be a guest with a man that was a sinner. But Zacchaeus standing, said to the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have wronged any man of any thing, I restore him fourfold. Jesus said to him: This day is salvation come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise ye Him in the high places. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
