God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.
They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
