Second Kings 5: 14-17

5:14So he descended and washed in the Jordan seven times, in accord with the word of the man of God. And his flesh was restored, like the flesh of a little child. And he was made clean.
5:15And returning to the man of God, with his entire retinue, he arrived, and stood before him, and he said: “Truly, I know there is no other God, in all the earth, except in Israel. And so I beg you to accept a blessing from your servant.”
5:16But he responded, “As the Lord lives, before whom I stand, I will not accept it.” And though he urged him strongly, he did not agree at all.
5:17And Naaman said: “As you wish. But I beg you to grant to me, your servant, that I may take from here the burden of two mules from the ground. For your servant will no longer offer holocaust or victim to other gods, except to the Lord.

Second Timothy 2: 8- 13

2:8Be mindful that the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the offspring of David, has risen again from the dead, according to my Gospel.
2:9I labor in this Gospel, even while chained like an evildoer. But the Word of God is not bound.
2:10I endure all things for this reason: for the sake of the elect, so that they, too, may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with heavenly glory.
2:11It is a faithful saying: that if we have died with him, we will also live with him.
2:12If we suffer, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us.
2:13If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful: he is not able to deny himself.

Luke 17: 11-19

17:11And it happened that, while he was traveling to Jerusalem, he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
17:12And as he was entering a certain town, ten leprous men met him, and they stood at a distance.
17:13And they lifted up their voice, saying, “Jesus, Teacher, take pity on us.”
17:14And when he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And it happened that, as they were going, they were cleansed.
17:15And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, returned, magnifying God with a loud voice.
17:16And he fell face down before his feet, giving thanks. And this one was a Samaritan.
17:17And in response, Jesus said: “Were not ten made clean? And so where are the nine?
17:18Was no one found who would return and give glory to God, except this foreigner?”
17:19And he said to him: “Rise up, go forth. For your faith has saved you.”
