for Thursday, December 13, 2018


13For I, the LORD your God,
   hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, 'Do not fear,
   I will help you.'

14Do not fear, you worm Jacob,
   you insect Israel!
I will help you, says the LORD;
   your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
15Now, I will make of you a threshing-sledge,
   sharp, new, and having teeth;
you shall thresh the mountains and crush them,
   and you shall make the hills like chaff.
16You shall winnow them and the wind shall carry them away,
   and the tempest shall scatter them.
Then you shall rejoice in the LORD;
   in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory.

17When the poor and needy seek water,
   and there is none,
   and their tongue is parched with thirst,
I the LORD will answer them,
   I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
18I will open rivers on the bare heights,
   and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
   and the dry land springs of water.
19I will put in the wilderness the cedar,
   the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive;
I will set in the desert the cypress,
   the plane and the pine together,
20so that all may see and know,
   all may consider and understand,
that the hand of the LORD has done this,
   the Holy One of Israel has created it.

 
 

11Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. 13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John came; 14and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15Let anyone with ears listen!
