Psalm 75

1 We give you thanks, O God, we give you thanks, *
     calling upon your Name and declaring all your wonderful deeds.
2 "I will appoint a time," says God; *
     "I will judge with equity.
3 Though the earth and all its inhabitants are quaking, *
     I will make its pillars fast.
4 I will say to the boasters, 'Boast no more,' *
     and to the wicked, 'Do not toss your horns;
5 Do not toss your horns so high, *
     nor speak with a proud neck.'"
6 For judgment is neither from the east nor from the west, *
     nor yet from the wilderness or the mountains.
7 It is God who judges; *
     he puts down one and lifts up another.
8 For in the Lord's hand there is a cup,
     full of spiced and foaming wine, which he pours out, *
     and all the wicked of the earth shall drink and
     drain the dregs.
9 But I will rejoice for ever; *
     I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 He shall break off all the horns of the wicked; *
     but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Matthew 7:13-21

‘Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is easy that leads to destruction, and there are many who take it. For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. ‘Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? In the same way, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits. ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord”, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only one who does the will of my Father in heaven.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
