Reading

The Book of Job    38: 1, 12-21, 40: 3-5

38:1 But the Lord, responding to Job from a whirlwind, said:
38:12 Did you, after your birth, command the birth of the sun and show the sunrise its place?
38:13 And did you hold the extremities of the earth, shaking them, and have you shaken the impious out of it?
38:14 The seal will be restored like clay, and it will remain in place like a garment.
38:15 From the impious, the light will be taken away, and the exalted arm will be broken.
38:16 Have you entered the depths of the sea, and have you taken a walk in the uttermost parts of the abyss?
38:17 Have the gates of death been opened to you, and have you seen the doors of darkness?
38:18 Have you considered the breadth of the earth? If you know all things, reveal them to me.
38:19 Which is the way that holds the light, and which is the place of darkness?
38:20 In this way, you might lead each thing to its final place, and understand the paths of its house.
38:21 So then, did you know when you were to be born? And did you know the number of your days
40:3 Will you make my judgment null and void; and will you condemn me so that you may be justified?
40:4 And do you have an arm like God, or a voice like thunder?
40:5 Envelop yourself with splendor, and raise yourself up on high, and be glorious, and put on splendid garments.

Gospel

The Holy Gospel According to Luke   10: 13-16

10:13 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that have been wrought in you, had been wrought in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in haircloth and ashes.
10:14 Yet truly, Tyre and Sidon will be forgiven more in the judgment than you will be.
10:15 And as for you, Capernaum, who would be exalted even up to Heaven: you shall be submerged into Hell.
10:16 Whoever hears you, hears me. And whoever despises you, despises me. And whoever despises me, despises him who sent me.”
