  • First Reading: Wisdom 2:1a, 12-22

    1 a For they have said, reasoning with themselves, but not right:
    12 Let us therefore lie in wait for the just, because he is not for our turn, and he is contrary to our doings, and upbraideth us with transgressions of the law, and divulgeth against us the sins of our way of life.
    13 He boasteth that he hath the knowledge of God, and calleth himself the son of God.
    14 He is become a censurer of our thoughts.
    15 He is grievous unto us, even to behold: for his life is not like other men's, and his ways are very different.
    16 We are esteemed by him as triflers, and he abstaineth from our ways as from filthiness, and he preferreth the latter end of the just, and glorieth that he hath God for his father.
    17 Let us see then if his words be true, and let us prove what shall happen to him, and we shall know what his end shall be.
    18 For if he be the true son of God, he will defend him, and will deliver him from the hands of his enemies.
    19 Let us examine him by outrages and tortures, that we may know his meekness and try his patience.
    20 Let us condemn him to a most shameful death: for there shall be respect had unto him by his words.
    21 These things they thought, and were deceived: for their own malice blinded them.
    22 And they knew not the secrets of God, nor hoped for the wages of justice, nor esteemed the honour of holy souls. 

  • Psalm: Psalms 34:17-18, 19-20, 21 and 23

    17 But the countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil things: to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
    18 The just cried, and the Lord heard them: and delivered them out of all their troubles.
    19 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a contrite heart: and he will save the humble of spirit.
    20 Many are the afflictions of the just; but out of them all will the Lord deliver them.
    21 The Lord keepeth all their bones, not one of them shall be broken.
    23 The Lord will redeem the souls of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall offend. 

  • Gospel: John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30

    1 After these things Jesus walked in Galilee; for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him.
    2 Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
    10 But after his brethren were gone up, then he also went up to the feast, not openly, but, as it were, in secret.
    25 Some therefore of Jerusalem said: Is not this he whom they seek to kill?
    26 And behold, he speaketh openly, and they say nothing to him. Have the rulers known for a truth, that this is the Christ?
    27 But we know this man, whence he is: but when the Christ cometh, no man knoweth whence he is.
    28 Jesus therefore cried out in the temple, teaching, and saying: You both know me, and you know whence I am: and I am not come of myself; but he that sent me, is true, whom you know not.
    29 I know him, because I am from him, and he hath sent me.
    30 They sought therefore to apprehend him: and no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
