Philemon and Onesimus


First Reading: Job 11:1-20


Zophar Rebukes Job

 1Then Zophar the Naamathite answered,
    2"Shall a multitude of words go unanswered,
         And a (A)talkative man be acquitted?
    3"Shall your boasts silence men?
         And shall you (B)scoff and none rebuke?
    4"For (C)you have said, 'My teaching is pure,
         And (D)I am innocent in your eyes.'
    5"But would that God might speak,
         And open His lips against you,
    6And show you the secrets of wisdom!
         For sound wisdom (E)has two sides
         Know then that God forgets a part of (F)your iniquity.
    7"(G)Can you discover the depths of God?
         Can you discover the limits of the Almighty?
    8"They are (H)high as the heavens, what can you do?
         Deeper than (I)Sheol, what can you know?
    9"Its measure is longer than the earth
         And broader than the sea.
    10"If He passes by or shuts up,
         Or calls an assembly, (J)who can restrain Him?
    11"For (K)He knows false men,
         And He (L)sees iniquity without investigating.
    12"(M)An idiot will become intelligent
         When the foal of a (N)wild donkey is born a man.
    13"(O)If you would (P)direct your heart right
         And (Q)spread out your hand to Him,
    14If iniquity is in your hand, (R)put it far away,
         And do not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
    15"Then, indeed, you could (S)lift up your face without moral defect,
         And you would be steadfast and (T)not fear.
    16"For you would (U)forget your trouble,
         As (V)waters that have passed by, you would remember it.
    17"Your life would be (W)brighter than noonday;
         Darkness would be like the morning.
    18"Then you would trust, because there is hope;
         And you would look around and rest securely.
    19"You would (X)lie down and none would disturb you,
         And many would (Y)entreat your favor.
    20"But the (Z)eyes of the wicked will fail,
         And there will (AA)be no escape for them;
         And their (AB)hope is (AC)to breathe their last."

Second Reading: John 5:19-29


 19Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, (A)the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.

 20"(B)For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him (C)greater works than these, so that you will marvel.

 21"For just as the Father raises the dead and (D)gives them life, even so (E)the Son also gives life to whom He wishes.

 22"For not even the Father judges anyone, but (F)He has given all judgment to the Son,

 23so that all will honor the Son even as they honor the Father. (G)He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

 24"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and (H)believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and (I)does not come into judgment, but has (J)passed out of death into life.

Two Resurrections
 25"Truly, truly, I say to you, (K)an hour is coming and now is, when (L)the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who (M)hear will live.

 26"For just as the Father has life in Himself, even so He (N)gave to the Son also to have life in Himself;

 27and He gave Him authority to (O)execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man.

 28"Do not marvel at this; for (P)an hour is coming, in which (Q)all who are in the tombs will hear His voice,

 29and will come forth; (R)those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.
