2nd lesson: (Jeremiah 23: 5-6 )
The Lord promises to send his people a righteous King
The days are surely coming, says the Lord, when I shall raise up for David
a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely and shall execute
justice and righteousness in the land.
In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety.
And this is the name by which he will be called:
“The Lord is our righteousness”
Thanks be to God
