Hosea 2: 16- 18, 21-22
2:16 And it will be in that day,” says the Lord, “that she will call me, ‘My Husband,’ and she will no longer call me, ‘My Baal.’
2:17 And I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, and she will no longer remember their name.
2:18 And in that day, I will strike a deal with them, with the beasts of the field, and with the birds of the sky, and with the creatures of the earth. And I will crush the bow and the sword, and I will wipe away war from the earth. And I will let them sleep securely.
2:21 And this will happen in that day: I will listen closely,” says the Lord. “I will hear the heavens, and they will hear the earth.
2:22 And the land will pay attention to the grain, and the wine, and the oil; and these will hear Jezreel.
The Holy Gospel According to Matthew 9: 18-26
9:18 And answering them, he said: “O unbelieving generation, how long must I be with you? How long shall I endure you? Bring him to me.”
9:19 And they brought him. And when he had seen him, immediately the spirit disturbed him. And having been thrown to the ground, he rolled around foaming.
9:20 And he questioned his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” But he said: “From infancy.
9:21 And often it casts him into fire or into water, in order to destroy him. But if you are able to do anything, help us and take pity on us.”
9:22 But Jesus said to him, “If you are able to believe: all things are possible to one who believes.”
9:23 And immediately the father of the boy, crying out with tears, said: “I do believe, Lord. Help my unbelief.”
9:24 And when Jesus saw the crowd rushing together, he admonished the unclean spirit, saying to him, “Deaf and mute spirit, I command you, leave him; and do not enter into him anymore.”
9:25 And crying out, and convulsing him greatly, he departed from him. And he became like one who is dead, so much so that many said, “He is dead.”
9:26 But Jesus, taking him by the hand, lifted him up. And he arose.
