First Reading for the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

Wisdom 1:13-15; 2:23-24

Summary: God created life and intended it to be eternal, but death entered the world through the devil's envy.

God's Creation and Death

God did not make death, nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.

For he fashioned 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 netherworld 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 experience it.
