Job 42:1-3, 5-6, 12-17

St. Matthew 18:1-5, 10

Job 42:1-3, 5-6, 12-17
1 This was the answer Job gave to Yahweh: 2 I know that you are all-powerful: what you conceive, you can perform. 3 I was the man who misrepresented your intentions with my ignorant words. You have told me about great works that I cannot understand, about marvels which are beyond me, of which I know nothing.

5 Before, I knew you only by hearsay but now, having seen you with my own eyes, 6 I retract what I have said, and repent in dust and ashes.

12 Yahweh blessed Job’s latter condition even more than his former one. He came to own fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand she-donkeys. 13 He had seven sons and three daughters; 14 his first daughter he called ‘Turtledove’, the second ‘Cassia’ and the third ‘Mascara’. 15 Throughout the land there were no women as beautiful as the daughters of Job. And their father gave them inheritance rights like their brothers. 16 After this, Job lived for another one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and his children’s children to the fourth generation.

17 Then, old and full of days, Job died.

Psalm 119:66, 71, 75, 91, 125, 130
66 Teach me judgement and knowledge, for I rely on your commandments.
71 It was good for me that I had to suffer, the better to learn your judgements.
75 I know, Yahweh, that your judgements are upright, and in punishing me you show your constancy.
91 Through your judgements all stands firm to this day, for all creation is your servant.
125 Your servant am I; give me understanding and I shall know your instructions.
130 As your word unfolds it gives light, and even the simple understand.

St. Matthew 18:1-5, 10
1 At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ 2 So he called a little child to him whom he set among them. 3 Then he said, ‘In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. 4 And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. 5 ‘Anyone who welcomes one little child like this in my name welcomes me.

10 ‘See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven.
