Tuesday of Septuagesima


First Reading: Job 14:1-22


Job Speaks of the Finality of Death

    1"(A)Man, who is born of woman,
         Is short-lived and (B)full of turmoil.
    2"(C)Like a flower he comes forth and withers
         He also flees like (D)a shadow and does not remain.
    3"You also (E)open Your eyes on him
         And (F)bring him into judgment with Yourself.
    4"(G)Who can make the clean out of the unclean?
         No one!
    5"Since his days are determined,
         The (H)number of his months is with You;
         And his limits You have set so that he cannot pass.
    6"(I)Turn Your gaze from him that he may rest,
         Until he fulfills his day like a hired man.
    7"For there is hope for a tree,
         When it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
         And its shoots will not fail.
    8"Though its roots grow old in the ground
         And its stump dies in the dry soil,
    9At the scent of water it will flourish
         And put forth sprigs like a plant.
    10"But (J)man dies and lies prostrate
         Man (K)expires, and where is he?
    11"As (L)water evaporates from the sea,
         And a river becomes parched and dried up,
    12So (M)man lies down and does not rise.
         Until the heavens are no longer,
         He will not awake nor be aroused out of his sleep.
    13"Oh that You would hide me in Sheol,
         That You would conceal me (N)until Your wrath returns to You,
         That You would set a limit for me and remember me!
    14"If a man dies, will he live again?
         All the days of my struggle I will wait
         Until my change comes.
    15"You will call, and I will answer You;
         You will long for (O)the work of Your hands.
    16"For now You (P)number my steps,
         You do not (Q)observe my sin.
    17"My transgression is (R)sealed up in a bag,
         And You wrap up my iniquity.
    18"But the falling mountain crumbles away,
         And the rock moves from its place;
    19Water wears away stones,
         Its torrents wash away the dust of the earth;
         So You (S)destroy man's hope.
    20"You forever overpower him and he (T)departs;
         You change his appearance and send him away.
    21"His sons achieve honor, but (U)he does not know it;
         Or they become insignificant, but he does not perceive it.
    22"But his body pains him,
         And he mourns only for himself."

Second Reading: John 6:41-59


Words to the Jews

 41(A)Therefore the Jews were grumbling about Him, because He said, "I am the bread that (B)came down out of heaven."

 42They were saying, "(C)Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother (D)we know? How does He now say, '(E)I have come down out of heaven'?"

 43Jesus answered and said to them, "Do not grumble among yourselves.

 44"No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me (F)draws him; and I will (G)raise him up on the last day.

 45"It is written (H)in the prophets, '(I)AND THEY SHALL ALL BE (J)TAUGHT OF GOD.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me.

 46"(K)Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father.

 47"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes (L)has eternal life.

 48"(M)I am the bread of life.

 49"(N)Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.

 50"This is the bread which (O)comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and (P)not die.

 51"(Q)I am the living bread that (R)came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, (S)he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give (T)for the life of the world is (U)My flesh."

 52(V)Then the Jews (W)began to argue with one another, saying, "How can this man give us His flesh to eat?"

 53So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of (X)the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.

 54"He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will (Y)raise him up on the last day.

 55"For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink.

 56"He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood (Z)abides in Me, and I in him.

 57"As the (AA)living Father (AB)sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me.

 58"This is the bread which (AC)came down out of heaven; not as (AD)the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread (AE)will live forever."

Words to the Disciples

 59These things He said (AF)in the synagogue as He taught (AG)in Capernaum.
