Verse for the week
“‘The days are coming’, declares the
Lord, ‘when I will fulfil the gracious promise
I made to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.
“‘In those days and at that time
I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line;
he will do what is just and right to the land.
In those days Judah will be saved
and Jerusalem will live in safety.
This is the name by which it will be called:
The Lord Our Righteousness.’”
Jeremiah 33: 14-16
