Reading (Hebrews 3:7-14)

[7] Therefore, as the Ruach HaKodesh says, “Today, if you hear God’s voice, [8] don’t harden your hearts, as you did in the Bitter Quarrel on that day in the Wilderness when you put God to the test.

[9] Yes, your fathers put me to the test; they challenged me, and they saw my work for forty years!

[10] Therefore, I was disgusted with that generation — I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray, they have not understood how I do things’; [11] in my anger, I swore that they would not enter my rest.”

[12] Watch out, brothers, so that there will not be in any one of you an evil heart lacking trust, which could lead you to apostatize from the living God!

[13] Instead, keep exhorting each other every day, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you will become hardened by the deceit of sin.

[14] For we have become sharers in the Messiah, provided, however, that we hold firmly to the conviction we began with, right through until the goal is reached.

Gospel (Mark 1: 40-45)

[40] A man afflicted with tzara‘at came to Yeshua and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” [41] Moved with pity, Yeshua reached out his hand, touched him and said to him, “I am willing! Be cleansed!”

[42] Instantly the tzara‘at left him, and he was cleansed. [43] Yeshua sent him away with this stern warning: [44] “See to it that you tell no one; instead, as a testimony to the people, go and let the cohen examine you, and offer for your cleansing what Moshe commanded.”

[45] But he went out and began spreading the news, talking freely about it; so that Yeshua could no longer enter a town openly but stayed out in the country, where people continued coming to him from all around.
