First Reading - Sir 35:16-18, 20-22b

16 The Lord will not accept any person against a poor man, and he will hear the prayer of him that is wronged.
17 He will not despise the prayers of the fatherless; nor the widow, when she poureth out her complaint.
18 Do not the widow' s tears run down the cheek, and her cry against him that causeth them to fall?  
20 He that adoreth God with joy, shall be accepted, and his prayer shall approach even to the clouds.
21 The prayer of him that humbleth himself, shall pierce the clouds: and till it come nigh he will not be comforted: and he will not depart till the most High behold.
22b And the Lord will not be slack, but will judge for the just.
