    Job 9:1-12, 14-16
    1 Then Job answered:
    2 "Truly I know that it is so: But how can a man be just before God?
    3 If one wished to contend with him, one could not answer him once in a thousand times.
    4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength -- who has hardened himself against him, and succeeded? --
    5 he who removes mountains, and they know it not, when he overturns them in his anger;
    6 who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble;
    7 who commands the sun, and it does not rise; who seals up the stars;
    8 who alone stretched out the heavens, and trampled the waves of the sea;
    9 who made the Bear and Orion, the Plei'ades and the chambers of the south;
    10 who does great things beyond understanding, and marvelous things without number.
    11 Lo, he passes by me, and I see him not; he moves on, but I do not perceive him.
    12 Behold, he snatches away; who can hinder him? Who will say to him, `What doest thou'?
    14 How then can I answer him, choosing my words with him?
    15 Though I am innocent, I cannot answer him; I must appeal for mercy to my accuser.
    16 If I summoned him and he answered me, I would not believe that he was listening to my voice.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 88:10-15
    9 my eye grows dim through sorrow. Every day I call upon thee, O LORD; I spread out my hands to thee.
    10 Dost thou work wonders for the dead? Do the shades rise up to praise thee? [Selah]
    11 Is thy steadfast love declared in the grave, or thy faithfulness in Abaddon?
    12 Are thy wonders known in the darkness, or thy saving help in the land of forgetfulness?
    13 But I, O LORD, cry to thee; in the morning my prayer comes before thee.
    14 O LORD, why dost thou cast me off? Why dost thou hide thy face from me?

  • Gospel

    Luke 9:57-62
    57 As they were going along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."
    58 And Jesus said to him, "Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head."
    59 To another he said, "Follow me." But he said, "Lord, let me first go and bury my father."
    60 But he said to him, "Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
    61 Another said, "I will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home."
    62 Jesus said to him, "No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God."

    2 Timothy 3:14-17
    14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it
    15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
    16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
    17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

  • Responsorial Psalm

    Psalms 119:9-14
    9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to thy word.
    10 With my whole heart I seek thee; let me not wander from thy commandments!
    11 I have laid up thy word in my heart, that I might not sin against thee.
    12 Blessed be thou, O LORD; teach me thy statutes!
    13 With my lips I declare all the ordinances of thy mouth.
    14 In the way of thy testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.

  • Gospel

    Matthew 13:47-52
    47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind;
    48 when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.
    49 So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous,
    50 and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.
    51 "Have you understood all this?" They said to him, "Yes."
    52 And he said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old."
