Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 11:28-30.

Jesus said: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.

For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”

Commentary of the day

Odes of Solomon

(Hebrew Christian text from the beginning of the 2nd century)

No. 30 (trans.©James Charlesworth, rev.)

“Come to me, all you who labor”

Fill for yourselves water from the living spring of the Lord, (Jn 4,10; 7,3)
because it has been opened for you.
And come all you thirsty
and take a drink, and rest beside the spring of the Lord,
because it is pleasing and sparkling, and perpetually pleases the self.

For more refreshing is its water than honey,
and the honeycomb of bees is not to be compared with it; (cf. Ps 18[19],11)
Because it flowed from the lips of the Lord,
and it took its name from the heart of the Lord.

And it came boundless and invisible,
and until it appeared they knew it not.
Blessed are they who have drunk from it,
and have have quenched their thirst!
