TWENTY-NINTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year C

Alternate First Reading: Job 12:7-10

A reading from the Book of Job

But turn to the animals,
and let them teach you;
the birds of the air will tell you the truth.

Listen to the plants of the earth,
and learn from them;
let the fish of the sea become your teachers.

Who among all these does not know
that the hand of YHWH has done this?

In God’s hand is the soul of every living thing;
in God’s hand is the breath of all humankind.

The Word of God recorded in the Book of Job
