Wisdom - Chapter 4
3 But the offspring of the godless come to nothing, however prolific, sprung from a bastard stock, they will never strike deep roots, never put down firm foundations.
4 They may branch out for a time, but, on unsteady foundations, they will be rocked by the wind and uprooted by the force of the storm;
5 their branches, yet unformed, will be snapped off, their fruit be useless, too unripe to eat, fit for nothing.
6 For children begotten of unlawful bed witness, when put on trial, to their parents' wickedness.
7 The upright, though he die before his time, will find rest.
11 He has been carried off so that evil may not warp his understanding or deceitfulness seduce his soul;
14 his soul being pleasing to the Lord, he has hurried away from the wickedness around him. Yet people look on, uncomprehending; and it does not enter their heads
15 that grace and mercy await his chosen ones and that he intervenes on behalf of his holy ones.
17 These people see the end of the wise without understanding what the Lord has in store or why he has taken such a one to safety;
19 Soon they will be corpses without honour, objects of horror among the dead for ever. For he will shatter them and fling them headlong and dumbfounded. He will shake them from their foundations; they will be utterly laid waste, a prey to grief, and their memory will perish.
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 88:10-11, 12-13, 14-15
