First Reading for the Saturday of the 1st Week of Lent

Deuteronomy 26:16-19

Summary: Moses tells the people they are to follow God's laws closely, entering a covenant where they'll be His treasured possession and, through obedience, be honored above all nations, fulfilling God's promise to make them a holy people.

Covenant of Commitment

Moses spoke to the people, saying: “This day the LORD, your God, commands you to observe these statutes and decrees. Be careful, then, to observe them with all your heart and with all your soul.

Today you are making this agreement with the LORD: he is to be your God and you are to walk in his ways and observe his statutes, commandments and decrees, and to hearken to his voice.

And today the LORD is making this agreement with you: you are to be a people peculiarly his own, as he promised you; and provided you keep all his commandments, he will then raise you high in praise and renown and glory above all other nations he has made, and you will be a people sacred to the LORD, your God, as he promised.”
