First Reading for the 1st Sunday of Advent Year C

Jeremiah 33:14-16

Summary: The Lord promises to fulfill his covenant with Israel and Judah, raising a righteous leader from David's line. Judah and Jerusalem will live in safety and be called "The Lord is our justice."

The Lord's Promise of Justice

The days are coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and Judah.

In those days, in that time, I will raise up for David a just shoot; he shall do what is right and just in the land.

In those days Judah shall be safe and Jerusalem shall dwell secure; this is what they shall call her: “The LORD our justice.”
