Prayer

Bless the Lord, whose name is to be praised,
Our Father who art in heaven,
who has given us his laws,
to show us the error of our ways,
Blessed is his son, Christ the Messiah,
who redeemed us from having broken them.
Blessed are you, O Holy Spirit,
who assists us in sinning no more,
and sustains us in the way of the Lord,
grant us wisdom and understanding this day.
Amen.

Old Testament Reading - The Fate of Violent Men

thumb

10 If young toughs tell you. "Come and join us" - turn your back on them! 11 "We'll hide and rob and kill," they say. 12 "Good or bad, we'll treat them all alike. 13 And the loot we'll get! All kinds of stuff! 14 Come on, throw in your lot with us; we'll split with you in equal shares."

15 Don't do it, son! Stay far from men like that, 16 for crime is their way of life, and murder is their specialty. 17 When a bird sees a trap being set, it stays away, 18 but not these men; they trap themselves! They lay a booby trap for their own lives. 19 Such is the fate of all who live by violence and murder.a They will die a violent death.

. . . .Proverbs 1:10-19
  1. Literally, "all who are greedy of gain."

They were faithful until death
and God has given them the crown of life.
