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.

Old Testament Reading - The power of godliness

  1. Wisdom rescued from troubles those who served her.
  2. When a righteous man fled from his brother's wrath,
    she guided him on straight paths;
    she showed him the kingdom of God,
    and gave him knowledge of holy things;
    she prospered him in his labours,
    and increased the fruit of his toil.
  3. When his oppressors were covetous,
    she stood by him and made him rich.
  4. She protected him from his enemies,
    and kept him safe from those who lay in wait for him;
    in his arduous contest she gave him the victory,
    so that he might learn that godliness is more powerful than anything else.
  5. When a righteous man was sold, wisdom a did not desert him,
    but delivered him from sin.
    She descended with him into the dungeon,
  6. and when he was in prison she did not leave him,
    until she brought him the sceptre of a kingdom
    and authority over his masters.
    Those who accused him she showed to be false,
    and she gave him everlasting honour.

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