First Reading: Job 9: 1-12, 14-16

1 And Job answered, and said:

2 Indeed I know it is so, and that man cannot be justified compared with God.

3 If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one for a thousand.

4 He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath resisted him, and hath had peace?

5 Who hath removed mountains, and they whom he overthrew in his wrath, knew it not.

6 Who shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.

7 Who commandeth tile sun and it riseth not: and shutteth up the stars as it were under a seal:

8 Who alone spreadeth out the heavens, and walketh upon the waves of the sea.

9 Who maketh Arcturus, and Orion, and Hyades, and the inner parts of the south.

10 Who doth things great and incomprehensible, and wonderful, of which there is no number.

11 If he come to me, I shall not see him: if he depart I shall not understand.

12 If he examine on a sudden, who shall answer him? or who can say: Why dost thou so?

14 What am I then, that I should answer him, and have words with him?

15 I, who although I should have any just thing, would not answer, but would make supplication to my judge.

16 And if he should hear me when I call, I should not believe that he had heard my voice.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 88: 10bc-11, 12-13, 14-15

R. (3) Let my prayer come before you, Lord.

10bc All the day I cried to thee, O Lord: I stretched out my hands to thee.

11 Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? or shall physicians raise to life, and give praise to thee?

R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.

12 Shall any one in the sepulchre declare thy mercy: and thy truth in destruction?

13 Shall thy wonders be known in the dark; and thy justice in the land of forgetfulness?

R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.

14 But I, O Lord, have cried to thee: and in the morning my prayer shall prevent thee.

15 Lord, why castest thou off my prayer: why turnest thou away thy face from me?

R. Let my prayer come before you, Lord.

Alleluia: Psalms 103: 21

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

21 Bless the LORD, all you angels, you ministers, who do his will.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel: Matthew 18: 1-5, 10

1 At that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying: Who thinkest thou is the greater in the kingdom of heaven?

2 And Jesus calling unto him a little child, set him in the midst of them,

3 And said: Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And he that shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me.

10 See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
