Hosea 14:2-9 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

Take words with you
    and return to the Lord;
say to him,
    ‘Take away all guilt;
accept that which is good,
    and we will offer
    the fruit[a] of our lips.
Assyria shall not save us;
    we will not ride upon horses;
we will say no more, “Our God”,
    to the work of our hands.
In you the orphan finds mercy.’

Assurance of Forgiveness

I will heal their disloyalty;
    I will love them freely,
    for my anger has turned from them.
I will be like the dew to Israel;
    he shall blossom like the lily,
    he shall strike root like the forests of Lebanon.[b]
His shoots shall spread out;
    his beauty shall be like the olive tree,
    and his fragrance like that of Lebanon.
They shall again live beneath my[c] shadow,
    they shall flourish as a garden;[d]
they shall blossom like the vine,
    their fragrance shall be like the wine of Lebanon.

O Ephraim, what have I[e] to do with idols?
    It is I who answer and look after you.[f]
I am like an evergreen cypress;
    your faithfulness[g] comes from me.
Those who are wise understand these things;
    those who are discerning know them.
For the ways of the Lord are right,
    and the upright walk in them,
    but transgressors stumble in them.

Matthew 10:16-23 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

Coming Persecutions

16 ‘See, I am sending you out like sheep into the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 17 Beware of them, for they will hand you over to councils and flog you in their synagogues; 18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings because of me, as a testimony to them and the Gentiles. 19 When they hand you over, do not worry about how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you at that time; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. 21 Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death; 22 and you will be hated by all because of my name. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly I tell you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
