The Book of the Prophet Isaiah   26: 7-9, 12, 16-19

26:7 The path of the just is upright; the difficult path of the just is right to walk in.
26:8 And in the path of your judgments, O Lord, we have endured for you. Your name and your remembrance are the desire of the soul.
26:9 My soul has desired you in the night. But I will also watch for you with my spirit, in my inmost heart, from the morning. When you accomplish your judgments upon the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn justice.
26:12 Lord, you will give us peace. For all our works have been wrought for us by you.
26:16 Lord, they have sought you in anguish. Your doctrine was with them, amid the tribulation of murmuring.
26:17 Like a woman who has conceived and is approaching the time for delivery, who, in anguish, cries out in her pains, so have we become before your face, O Lord.
26:18 We have conceived, and it is as if we were in labor, but we have given birth to wind. We have not brought forth salvation on the earth. For this reason, the inhabitants of the earth have not fallen.
26:19 Your dead shall live. My slain will rise again. Be awakened, and give praise, you who live in the dust! For your dew is the dew of the light, and you shall be dragged down to the land of the giants, to ruination.


The Holy Gospel According to Matthew    11: 28-30

11:28 Come to me, all you who labor and have been burdened, and I will refresh you.
11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you shall find rest for your souls.
11:30 For my yoke is sweet and my burden is light.”
