A reading from the book of Wisdom.

God did not make death

nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.

He fashions all things that they might have being and

the creatures of the world are wholesome and

there is not a destructive drug among them nor

any domain of the nether world on earth

for justice is undying.

For God formed man to be imperishable

the image of his own nature he made him

But by the envy of the Devil

death entered the world and

they who belong to his company experienced it.

13 th Sunday in ordinary times- Wisdom-1:13-15
