His parents did not know it,44but supposing him to be in the group they went a day’s journey, but then they began to search for him among their relatives and acquaintances,45and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching for him.46After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.47And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.48And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.”49And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”

for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
