Daily Reading for Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013
Reading 1, Sirach 4:11-19
11 Wisdom brings up her own children and cares for those who seek her.
12 Whoever loves her loves life, those who seek her early will be filled with joy.
15 Whoever obeys her rules the nations, whoever pays attention to her dwells secure.
17 for though she takes him at first through winding ways, bringing fear and faintness on him, trying him out with her discipline till she can trust him, and testing him with her ordeals,
18 she then comes back to him on the straight road, makes him happy and reveals her secrets to him.
19 If he goes astray, however, she abandons him and leaves him to his own destruction.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 119:165, 168, 171, 172, 174, 175
165 Great peace for those who love your Law; no stumbling-blocks for them!
168 I observe your precepts, your judgements, for all my ways are before you.
171 May my lips proclaim your praise, for you teach me your will.
172 May my tongue recite your promise, for all your commandments are upright.
174 I long for your salvation, Yahweh, your Law is my delight.
175 May I live only to praise you, may your judgements be my help.
Gospel, Mark 9:38-40
38 John said to him, 'Master, we saw someone who is not one of us driving out devils in your name, and because he was not one of us we tried to stop him.'
40 Anyone who is not against us is for us.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
