Jeremiah 26: 1- 9
26:1 In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, the king of Judah, this word came from the Lord, saying:
26:2 “Thus says the Lord: Stand in the atrium of the house of the Lord, and speak to all the cities of Judah, from which they come to adore in the house of the Lord, all the words that I have commanded you to speak to them. Do not choose to subtract any word.
26:3 So may they hear and be converted, each one from his evil way. And then I may repent of the evil that I plan to do to them because of the wickedness of their pursuits.
26:4 And you shall say to them: Thus says the Lord: If you will not listen to me, so that you walk in my law, which I have given to you,
26:5 so that you listen to the words of my servants, the prophets, whom I have sent to you, who arise while it is still night, and though they give guidance, you do not listen,
26:6 then I will make this house like Shiloh, and I will make this city into a curse for all the nations of the earth.”
26:7 And the priests, and the prophets, and all the people heard Jeremiah speaking these words in the house of the Lord.
26:8 And when Jeremiah had completed speaking all that the Lord had instructed him to speak to all the people, then the priests, and the prophets, and all the people apprehended him, saying: “You shall be put to death.”
26:9 “Why has he prophesied in the name of the Lord, saying: ‘Like Shiloh, so shall this house be,’ and, ‘This city shall be made desolate, even without an inhabitant?’ ” And all the people were gathered together against Jeremiah in the house of the Lord.
The Holy Gospel According to Matthew 13: 54-58
|13:54||And arriving in his own country, he taught them in their synagogues, so much so that they wondered and said: “How can such wisdom and power be with this one?|
|13:55||Is this not the son of a workman? Is not his mother called Mary, and his brothers, James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude?|
|13:56||And his sisters, are they not all with us? Therefore, from where has this one obtained all these things?”|
|13:57||And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country and in his own house.”|
|13:58||And he did not work many miracles there, because of their unbelief.|
