Daily Gospel Reading for September 26, 2022 – Monday in the Twenty-Sixth Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 26th of September, 2022 is Monday in the Twenty-Sixth Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the 2022 Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: JB 1:6-22

The first reading from the Book of Job.

Now on the day when God’s sons came to present themselves before Yahweh, Satan also came among them.

Yahweh said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, “From going back and forth in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”

Yahweh said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant, Job? For there is no one like him in the earth, a blameless and an upright man, one who fears God, and turns away from evil.”

Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing?

Haven’t you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

But stretch out your hand now, and touch all that he has, and he will renounce you to your face.”

Yahweh said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power. Only on himself don’t stretch out your hand.” So Satan went out from the presence of Yahweh.

It fell on a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, that a messenger came to Job, and said, “The oxen were plowing, and the donkeys feeding beside them, and the Sabeans attacked, and took them away. Yes, they have killed the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The fire of God has fallen from the sky, and has burned up the sheep and the servants, and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “The Chaldeans made three bands, and swept down on the camels, and have taken them away, yes, and killed the servants with the edge of the sword; and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

While he was still speaking, there came also another, and said, “Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, and behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young men, and they are dead. I alone have escaped to tell you.”

Then Job arose, and tore his robe, and shaved his head, and fell down on the ground, and worshiped.

He said, “Naked I came out of my mother’s womb, and naked will I return there. Yahweh gave, and Yahweh has taken away. Blessed be Yahweh’s name.”

In all this, Job didn’t sin, nor charge God with wrongdoing.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 17:1, 2-3, 6-7

Response: Turn your ear to me. Hear my speech.

Hear, Yahweh, my righteous plea. Give ear to my prayer that doesn’t go out of deceitful lips.

R: Turn your ear to me. Hear my speech.

Let my sentence come out of your presence. Let your eyes look on equity.

You have proved my heart. You have visited me in the night. You have tried me, and found nothing. I have resolved that my mouth shall not disobey.

R: Turn your ear to me. Hear my speech.

I have called on you, for you will answer me, God. Turn your ear to me. Hear my speech.

Show your marvelous loving kindness, you who save those who take refuge by your right hand from their enemies.

R: Turn your ear to me. Hear my speech.

Gospel of the Day: LK 9:46-50

From the gospel verse according to Luke.

An argument arose among them about which of them was the greatest.

Jesus, perceiving the reasoning of their hearts, took a little child, and set him by his side, and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in my name receives me. Whoever receives me receives him who sent me. For whoever is least among you all, this one will be great.”

John answered, “Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we forbade him, because he doesn’t follow with us.”

Jesus said to him, “Don’t forbid him, for he who is not against us is for us.”
