First Reading for the Tuesday of the 2nd Week of Lent

Isaiah 1:10, 16-20

Summary: The LORD challenges the people, likening them to Sodom and Gomorrah, to cleanse their ways, pursue justice, and aid the vulnerable. Promising purification from sins and blessings for obedience, yet warning of consequences for rebellion.

Call to Righteousness

Hear the word of the LORD, princes of Sodom! Listen to the instruction of our God, people of Gomorrah!

Wash yourselves clean! Put away your misdeeds from before my eyes; cease doing evil; learn to do good. Make justice your aim: redress the wronged, hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow.

Come now, let us set things right, says the LORD: Though your sins be like scarlet, they may become white as snow; though they be crimson red, they may become white as wool. If you are willing, and obey, you shall eat the good things of the land; but if you refuse and resist, the sword shall consume you: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken!
