Wednesday of Sexagesima

First Reading: Job 20:16-31

16He will suck the poison of cobras;
   (A) the tongue of a viper will kill him. 17He will not look upon(B) the rivers,
   the streams flowing with(C) honey and(D) curds. 18He will(E) give back the fruit of his toil
   and will not(F) swallow it down;from the profit of his trading
   he will get no enjoyment. 19For he has crushed and abandoned the poor;
   he has seized a house that he did not build.

 20"Because he(G) knew no(H) contentment in his belly,
   (I) he will not let anything in which he delights escape him. 21There was nothing left after he had eaten;
   therefore his prosperity will not endure. 22In the fullness of his sufficiency he will be in distress;
   the hand of everyone in misery will come against him. 23To fill his belly to the full,
   God[a] will send his burning anger against him
   and rain it upon him(J) into his body. 24(K) He will flee from an iron weapon;
   (L) a bronze arrow will strike(M) him through. 25It(N) is drawn forth and comes out of his body;
   (O) the glittering point comes out of his(P) gallbladder;
   (Q) terrors come upon him. 26Utter darkness is laid up for his treasures;
   (R) a fire not fanned will devour him;
   what is left in his tent will be consumed. 27(S) The heavens will reveal his iniquity,
   and the earth will rise up against him. 28The possessions of his house will be carried away,
   dragged off in the day of God’s[b] wrath. 29(T) This is the wicked man’s portion from God,
   the heritage decreed for him by God."

Second Reading: John 9:1-23

Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind

 1As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. 2And his disciples asked him,(A) "Rabbi,(B) who sinned,(C) this man or(D) his parents, that he was born blind?" 3Jesus answered, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but(E) that the works of God might be displayed in him. 4We must(F) work the works of him who sent me(G) while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. 5As long as I am in the world,(H) I am the light of the world." 6Having said these things,(I) he spat on the ground and made mud with the saliva.(J) Then he anointed the man’s eyes with the mud 7and said to him, "Go, wash in(K) the pool of Siloam" (which means Sent). So he went and washed and(L) came back seeing.

 8The neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar were saying,(M) "Is this not the man who used to sit and beg?" 9Some said, "It is he." Others said, "No, but he is like him." He kept saying, "I am the man." 10So they said to him, "Then how were your eyes opened?" 11He answered,(N) "The man called Jesus made mud and anointed my eyes and said to me, 'Go to Siloam and wash.' So I went and washed and received my sight." 12They said to him, "Where is he?" He said, "I do not know."

 13They brought to the Pharisees the man who had formerly been blind. 14(O) Now it was a Sabbath day when Jesus made the mud and opened his eyes. 15(P) So the Pharisees again asked him how he had received his sight. And he said to them, "He put mud on my eyes, and I washed, and I see." 16Some of the Pharisees said, "This man is not(Q) from God,(R) for he does not keep the Sabbath." But others said,(S) "How can a man who is a sinner do such signs?" And(T) there was a division among them. 17So they said again to the blind man, "What do you say about him, since he has opened your eyes?" He said,(U) "He is a prophet."

 18(V) The Jews did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight, until they called the parents of the man who had received his sight 19and asked them, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?" 20His parents answered, "We know that this is our son and that he was born blind. 21But how he now sees we do not know, nor do we know who opened his eyes. Ask him; he is of age. He will speak for himself." 22(His parents said these things(W) because they feared the Jews, for(X) the Jews had already agreed that if anyone should(Y) confess Jesus[a] to be Christ,(Z) he was to be put out of the synagogue.) 23Therefore his parents said,(AA) "He is of age; ask him."
