Psalm 103:20,21
From the psalms of our teacher David the prophet and King may his blessings be with us all, amen.
Bless the Lord, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His bidding. Bless the LORD, you His hosts, you ministers of His, that do His will. Alleluia.

The gospel according to our teacher Saint Matthew may his blessings be with us all, amen. (Matthew 13: 44-52)
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price,
Went and sold all that he had and bought it. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away.
So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” Jesus said to them, “Have you understood all these things?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then He said to them, “Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old.” Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there.
Glory be to God forever.
