  • First Reading: 1 Kings 17:7-16

    7 And the staff of his spear was like a weavers beam, and the head of his spear weighed six hundred sicles of iron: and his armourbearer went before him.
    8 And standing he cried out to the bands of Israel, and said to them: Why are you come out prepared to fight? am not I a Philistine, and you the servants of Saul? Choose out a man of you, and let him come down and fight hand to hand.
    9 If he be able to fight with me, and kill me, we will be servants to you: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, you shall be servants, and shall serve us.
    10 And the Philistine said: I have defied the bands of Israel this day: Give me a man, and let him fight with me hand to hand.
    11 And Saul and all the Israelites hearing these words of the Philistine were dismayed, and greatly afraid.
    12 Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehem Juda before mentioned, whose name was Isai, who had eight sons, and was an old man in the days of Saul, and of great age among men.
    13 And his three eldest sons followed Saul to the battle: and the names of his three sons that went to the battle, were Eliab the firstborn, and the second Abinadab, and the third Samma.
    14 But David was the youngest. So the three eldest having followed Saul,
    15 David went, and returned from Saul, to feed his fathers flock at Bethlehem.
    16 Now the Philistine came out morning and evening and presented himself forty days.

  • Psalm: Psalms 4:2-3, 4-5, 7b-8

    2 When I called upon him, the God of my justice heard me: when I was in distress, thou hast enlarged me. Have mercy on me: and hear my prayer.
    3 O ye sons of men, how long will you be dull of heart? why do you love vanity, and seek after lying?
    4 Know ye also that the Lord hath made his holy one wonderful: the Lord will hear me when I shall cry unto him.
    5 Be angry, and sin not: the things you say in your hearts, be sorry for them upon your beds.
    7 The light of thy countenance O Lord, is signed upon us: thou hast given gladness in my heart.
    8 By the fruit of their corn, their wine and oil, they are multiplied.

  • Gospel: Matthew 5:13-16

    13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt lose its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is good for nothing any more but to be cast out, and to be trodden on by men.
    14 You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid.
    15 Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house.
    16 So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
