  • First Reading: 2 Samuel 7:1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16

    1 And it came to pass when the king sat in his house, and the Lord had given him rest on every side from all his enemies,
    2 He said to Nathan the prophet: Dost thou see that I dwell in a house of cedar, and the ark of God is lodged within skins?
    3 And Nathan said to the king: Go, do all that is in thy heart: because the Lord is with thee.
    4 But it came to pass that night, that the word of the Lord came to Nathan, saying:
    5 Go, and say to my servant David: Thus saith the Lord: Shalt thou build me a house to dwell in?
    8 And now thus shalt thou speak to my servant David: Thus saith the Lord of hosts: a I took thee out of the pastures from following the sheep to be ruler over my people Israel:
    9 And I have been with thee wheresoever thou hast walked, and have slain all thy enemies from before thy face: and I have made thee a great man, like unto the name of the great ones that are on the earth.
    10 And I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and I will plant them, and they shall dwell therein, and shall be disturbed no more: neither shall the children of iniquity afflict them any more as they did before,
    11 From the day that I appointed judges over my people Israel: and I will give thee rest from all thy enemies. And the Lord foretelleth to thee, that the Lord will make thee a house.
    12 And when thy days shall be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
    14 I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son
    16 And thy house shall be faithful, and thy kingdom for ever before thy face, and thy throne shall be firm for ever.

  • 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 and 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.
