First Reading for the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Zephaniah 2:3; 3:12-13

Summary: The humble who follow God's commands are urged to seek justice and humility for refuge from His wrath. Among them, a peaceful, truthful remnant of Israel will be preserved.

Refuge for the Humble

Seek the LORD, all you humble of the earth, who have observed his law; seek justice, seek humility; perhaps you may be sheltered on the day of the LORD’s anger.

But I will leave as a remnant in your midst a people humble and lowly, who shall take refuge in the name of the LORD: the remnant of Israel.

They shall do no wrong and speak no lies; nor shall there be found in their mouths a deceitful tongue; they shall pasture and couch their flocks with none to disturb them.
