Friday in the second week after the Epiphany

The readings for Friday in the second week after Epiphany is from 2 Corinthians 12.

Reading 1: If I must glory (it is not expedient indeed): but I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. I know a man in Christ above fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I know not, or out of the body, I know not; God knoweth), such a one caught up to the third heaven. And I know such a man (whether in the body, or out of the body, I know not: God knoweth): That he was caught up into paradise, and heard secret words, which it is not granted to man to utter.

R. Confitebor tibi Domine Deus in toto corde meo, et honorificabo nomen tuum in aeternum: * Quia misericordia tua Domine magna est super me.
V. Deus meus es tu, et confitebor tibi: Deus meus es tu, et exaltabo te.
R. Quia misericordia tua Domine magna est super me.
R. I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify thy Name for evermore. * For great is thy mercy toward me.
V. Thou art my God, and I will praise thee Thou art my God, and I will exalt thee.
R. For great is thy mercy toward me

Reading 2: For such an one I will glory; but for myself I will glory nothing, but in my infirmities.  For though I should have a mind to glory, I shall not be foolish; for I will say the truth. But I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth in me, or any thing he heareth from me. And lest the greatness of the revelations should exalt me, there was given me a sting of my flesh, an angel of Satan, to buffet me.  For which thing thrice I besought the Lord, that it might depart from me.  And he said to me: My grace is sufficient for thee: for power is made perfect in infirmity.

R. Misericordia tua Domine magna est super me: * Et liberasti animam meam ex inferno inferiori.
V. In die tribulationis meae clamavi ad te, quia exaudisti me.
R. Et liberasti animam meam ex inferno inferiori.
R. Great, O Lord, is thy mercy toward me. * And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
V. In the day of my trouble I called upon thee, for Thou hast heard me.
R. And Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.

Reading 3: Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. For which cause I please myself in my infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ. For when I am weak, then am I powerful. I am become foolish: you have compelled me. For I ought to have been commended by you: for I have no way come short of them that are above measure apostles, although I be nothing.

R. Factus est mihi Dominus in refugium: * Et Deus meus in auxilium spei meae.
V. Eripuit me de inimicis meis fortissimis, et factus est Dominus protector meus.
R. Et Deus meus in auxilium spei meae.
V. Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
R. Et Deus meus in auxilium spei meae.
R. The Lord is my refuge. * And my God is the stay of my trust.
V. He delivered me from the strongest of mine enemies, and the Lord was my stay.
R. And my God is the stay of my trust.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
R. And my God is the stay of my trust.
