John 18:19-24

The high priest then questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. 20 Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. I have said nothing in secret. 21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me what I said to them; they know what I said.” 22 When he had said these things, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with his hand, saying, “Is that how you answer the high priest?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If what I said is wrong, bear witness about the wrong; but if what I said is right, why do you strike me?” 24 Annas then sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

Psalm 35:9-16

Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord,

    exulting in his salvation.

10 

All my bones shall say,

    “O Lord, who is like you,

delivering the poor

    from him who is too strong for him,

    the poor and needy from him who robs him?”

11 

Malicious[ad] witnesses rise up;

    they ask me of things that I do not know.

12 

They repay me evil for good;

    my soul is bereft.[ae]

13 

But I, when they were sick—

    I wore sackcloth;

    I afflicted myself with fasting;

I prayed with head bowed[af] on my chest.

14 

    I went about as though I grieved for my friend or my brother;

as one who laments his mother,

    I bowed down in mourning.

15 

But at my stumbling they rejoiced and gathered;

    they gathered together against me;

wretches whom I did not know

    tore at me without ceasing;

16 

like profane mockers at a feast,[ag]    they gnash at me with their teeth.
