  • First Reading: Jeremiah 20:10-13

    10 For I heard the reproaches of many, and terror on every side: Persecute him, and let us persecute him: from all the men that were my familiars, and continued at my side: if by any means he may be deceived, and we may prevail against him, and be revenged on him.
    11 But the Lord is with me as a strong warrior: therefore they that persecute me shall fall, and shall be weak: they shall be greatly confounded, because they have not understood the everlasting reproach, which never shall be effaced.
    12 And thou, O Lord of hosts, prover of the just, who seest the reins and the heart: let me see, I beseech thee, thy vengeance on them: for to thee I have laid open my cause.
    13 Sing ye to the Lord, praise the Lord: because he hath delivered the soul of the poor out of the hand of the wicked.

  • Psalm: Psalms 18:2-3a,3bc-4,5-6,7

    2 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength:
    3 The Lord is my firmament, my refuge, and my deliverer. My God is my helper, and in him will I put my trust. My protector and the horn of my salvation, and my support.
    4 Praising I will call upon the Lord: and I shall be saved from my enemies.
    5 The sorrows of death surrounded me: and the torrents of iniquity troubled me.
    6 The sorrows of hell encompassed me: and the snares of death prevented me.
    7 In my affliction I called upon the Lord, and I cried to my God: And he heard my voice from his holy temple: and my cry before him came into his ears.

  • Gospel: John 10:31-42

    31 The Jews then took up stones to stone him.
    32 Jesus answered them: Many good works I have shewed you from my Father; for which of these works do you stone me?
    33 The Jews answered him: For a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, maketh thyself God.
    34 Jesus answered them: Is it not written in your law: I said you are gods?
    35 If he called them gods, to whom the word of God was spoken, and the scripture cannot be broken;
    36 Do you say of him whom the Father hath sanctified and sent into the world: Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God?
    37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
    38 But if I do, though you will not believe me, believe the works: that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.
    39 They sought therefore to take him; and he escaped out of their hands.
    40 And he went again beyond the Jordan, into that place where John was baptizing first; and there he abode.
    41 And many resorted to him, and they said: John indeed did no sign.
    42 But all things whatsoever John said of this man, were true. And many believed in him.
