  • First Reading: Isaiah 48:17-19

    17 Thus saith the Lord thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord thy God that teach thee profitable things, that govern thee in the way that thou walkest.
    18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments: thy peace had been as a river, and thy justice as the waves of the sea,
    19 And thy seed had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof: his name should not have perished, nor have been destroyed from before my face.

  • Psalm: Psalms 1:1-2, 3, 4, 6

    1 Blessed is the man who hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the chair of pestilence.
    2 But his will is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he shall meditate day and night.
    3 And he shall be like a tree which is planted near the running waters, which shall bring forth its fruit, in due season. And his leaf shall not fall off: and all whatsoever he shall do shall prosper.
    4 Not so the wicked, not so: but like the dust, which the wind driveth from the face of the earth.
    6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the just: and the way of the wicked shall perish.

  • Gospel: Matthew 11:16-19

    16 But whereunto shall I esteem this generation to be like? It is like to children sitting in the market place.
    17 Who crying to their companions say: We have piped to you, and you have not danced: we have lamented, and you have not mourned.
    18 For John came neither eating nor drinking; and they say: He hath a devil.
    19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say: Behold a man that is a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of publicans and sinners. And wisdom is justified by her children.
